I nodded my head and waved at Iris, as she headed the opposite direction. If I recalled correctly there was a small tea shop around here, run by a sweet older lady. They had all kinds of tea, surely, I could find something the Captain would like. I walked around in search of the tea shop and eventually I found it.

Heicho's birthday (a one shot) (part two)

I nodded my head and waved at Iris, as she headed the opposite direction. If I recalled correctly there was a small tea shop around here, run by a sweet older lady.

They had all kinds of tea, surely, I could find something the Captain would like. I walked around in search of the tea shop and eventually I found it.

I could smell all the different variations of tea and it smelled wonderful. I walked into the shop and saw rows upon rows of different teas.

I looked around in awe and could not believe so many types of tea existed. As my eyes wandered, they fell upon a little old lady behind the counter.

'Come in dear, come in. Don't be shy!' she remarked. I walked upto the counter slowly and then I realized I had no idea what type of tea the Captain liked...

'What can I help you with my dear?' The little old said politely.

'Well, I'm looking for a gift...' I mumbled.

'What's that? I cannot hear you dear. These old ears are not what they used to be. So speak louder.'

'I am looking for a gift.' I said a little louder.

'What's that? I still cannot hear you!' The old lady replied.

' I said I am looking for a gift!' I said louder.

'Oh a gift? Well, you are in the right place. And who is this tea for? For a friend? For a lover perhaps?' The old lady said and gave me a small wink. I could feel my cheeks growing warm.

I could not imagine the Captain being my 'lover,' I covered my cheeks with my hands. The old lady chuckled.

'Do not be embarrassed young lady. A lovely little thing such as yourself surely has many young gentlemen coming after you.

When I was your age, I had my fair share of young lads coming after me.' She smiled at me. 'Surely there is a special someone you have in mind?'

I felt myself blushing more. I shook my head quickly and grabbed my long brown ponytail and began fiddling with it out of nervousness.

'No, no there is no one.' I said quietly. The old woman looked at me with incredulity not believing my words and frowning slightly.

'Well, whatever you say young lady. Now what type of tea are you looking for? I have some lovely oolong tea I just got in. We also have chai tea, green tea, jasmine tea.

So, what will it be?' the shopkeeper inquired. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed because I had no idea there was so many types of tea.

I did not know what to pick nor did I know what the Captain liked to drink. But wait, I recalled a recent memory.

I remembered overhearing a conversation between Commander Hange and Captain Levi about beverage choices.

I prefer black tea, with no additives. Adding sugar or milk to the tea makes it lose its flavor and is too sweet. I remember the Captain saying.

'Do you have any black tea?' I asked the old woman.

'Of course, I have black tea. What type would you like?' The old woman asked. I looked at her with wide eyes. I had not realized there was different types of black tea too.

I had no idea what type of black tea to get.

'What would you recommend?' I asked the shopkeeper.

'Well, we have some lovely black jasmine tea I just got in this morning.' The woman wandered to the back and came back with a short ladder. She slowly climbed up the ladder to retrieve the tea.

She slowly climbed back down. I heard the ring of the clock tower and realized an hour was closing in. The shop keeper handed me the tea.

I turned it over in my hand searching for a tea leaf, and I found one. I lightly sniffed it and it smelled heavenly. I hoped that Captain Levi would like it.

'Thank you, ma'am. How much do I owe you?' I asked.

The old woman smiled and shook her head. 'It's on the house. Just don't forget to give it to that someone special.' She said and winked at me.

I guess the woman could see through my lie after all. I returned the smile and quickly left the shop.

I headed to the center of the market and looked around trying to find some sign of the Commander or Iris.

'Lexi! Lexi over here!' I heard my name being called. I turned around and spotted Iris and Commander Hange. Iris was waving at me and Commander Hange was smiling at me.

They both had their hands full of bags of items. I could see shiny and sparkly items gleaming in the sunlight.

'Let us go Lexi! It's almost time for the party!' Hange said. I quickly walked to where they were, and we went to find where our horses had been stabled.

We put the bags on the saddles and mounted up. Then we were off, heading back to headquarters. We arrived back at headquarters just in time before the party.

Iris and I took our horses and Commander Hange's horse and put them in the stable. Iris get looking at me inquisitively. I glanced at her back.

'What Iris?' I asked quietly. 'Is there something bothering you?'

'I was just wondering where you went while we were in town is all. You just disappeared. The Commander nor I could find you for a while.'

'Ah that...' It figures she would notice. I thought to myself. ' I was just catching up with an old friend.' I lied.

Iris looked into my eyes as if searching for something. 'Lex, you really are a bad liar. I've known you for 4 years now and can always tell when you are not telling the truth.'

I sighed. Of course she knew I was lying. I could not put anything passed Iris.

'No really I was seeing an old friend.' I repeated and smiled tentatively. Iris continued staring at me and then shook her head.

'Alright, if you do not want to tell me what you really doing that's fine. It's not my business anyway...'Iris mumbled under her breath sounding slightly hurt.

I walked over to her and gave her a slight squeeze on the shoulder. 'Let us go get ready for this party.' I said trying to cheer her up. It seemed to do the trick. She grinned widely.

I nodded my head and waved at Iris, as she headed the opposite direction. If I recalled correctly there was a small tea shop around here, run by a sweet older lady.
