((Rene Wolfe continued from Skeletons and Spaghetti))

Clothes shopping was definitely not very high on Rene's list of enjoyable activities. Most of the time she couldn't find anything she liked, which meant that it almost always came down to her going home and shopping online after having wasted hours searching around town that could have been spent doing other things. More specifically, things that she actually liked to do, and did not do merely out of necessity.

If nothing else, she could at least take comfort in the fact that she only had to do this about twice a year on average.

The selection was, as usual, quite underwhelming, at least from her point of view. She could deal with the options for pants and the like, but she was very particular about shirts. She did not like shirts that were, in her words, "boring". Why take a plain shirt over one that actually has some graphic design work put into it? That philosophy led to her wardrobe containing only two shirts without any designs on them, and those were formal wear. After all, isn't a shirt with, say, a dapper skeleton in a top hat on it better than a solid color or a Coke logo? Rene certainly thought so.

As she expressed silent disapproval over the shirts on display, Rene came across a couple of girls she recognized from school. She wouldn't describe Scarlett and Rea as super-great friends or anything like that, but they seemed pretty all right to her, even if she thought that Rea needed to learn to take a joke every once in a while. Scarlett was trying to call someone named Jerry over of the conversation. Rene decided to stick around for a while. After all, it wasn't like she had anything else to do at the moment.

"Jerry? Nah, name's Rene. Good guess, though."

Rene watched Scarlett leave, talking to who she assumed had to be that "Jerry" kid on the way out. Damn, only one line in, and one conversation partner already out the door. This left Rene alone with Rea. Well, not technically alone considering that they were standing in the middle of a retail store, but considering that the people around them had absolutely no interest in what was going on between the two of them, Rene counted that as being alone.

Despite their names sounding kind of similar, Rene wasn't sure if she actually had anything in common with Rea. Sure, she didn't really know Rea at all, but she had made some assumptions from their brief interactions in the past. Brief interactions, in this case, meaning walking by each other in the halls maybe two or three times. Not really much to make a hypothesis off of, but Rene was pretty sure that she had a little bit to go off of.

Oh wait, Rea was talking to her.

"Yeah, I'm not really the type to spend a lot of time going out on the town." She replied, leaning against the side of a shelf. "Maybe I would be if there was actually more stuff to do around here, though."
