myra lannister stepped out of the black sedan and into the fresh new york city air. she would say that it was wonderful except for the children running around the gardens. she'd been planning to meet with zinnia for quite some time and figured that this would be a beautiful place to do so. sadly, it looked like the little trolls would be a bother. she never was a fan of children most likely due to them reminding her of her once innocent self. before she realized who she was in all of her glory. maleficent. that was her past name and it had a certain ring to it, but so did myra. she walked through the paved walkway towards to lake in the center of the garden. there had been a large cherry blossom tree that clung near the greenhouse. it was a gorgeous bit of scenery that she often visited.

the september air was just under seventy degrees which gave the botanical gardens a nice breeze. myra walked to the edge of the walkway and stared at the lake. how long had it been since she'd seen zinnia? since they were children? myra could have sworn she had seen her around new york a few times, but never wanted to bring it up. she was one of the only people she felt like she could let her guard down. sometimes it was hard to hold back her bitchy attitude, but she honestly tried for zinnia. she leaned against the white railing with her hands crossed in front of her. the new life she lead was much better than her old one. she was well known, included in a lot of events, and even had a few people she could mess with as much as she wanted.

she readjusted her outfit and turned on her heels for the green house. that was where she said they'd meet since the gardens can be a bit large. the green house smelled of flowers and dirt a strange yet sweet mixture. there were all different types of flora and greenery that grew all over. this was probably where they grew before being taken outdoors. myra plucked a single, purple carnation when it started to brown and wither. she watched as it died in front of her eyes. she dropped the carnation onto the floor and looked around. where was her friend?

Zinnia played with the long necklace she wore, peering outside the window of the Uber she was riding in. Excitement thrummed through her, one knee bouncing as the car neared their destination. She was meeting with an old friend today, someone she hadn't seen in years and honestly, she was still in bit of shock. Zinnia and Myra had spent their childhood together, two peas in a pod even though Myra was a few years older. Zinnia had looked up to her, the way she'd always moved with such grace, her charming smiles and her kind face. She'd loved the other girl fiercely, as only children can, and when Myra's mother had passed it had broken her heart. Myra had pulled away, the tragedy taking its toll on her and though Zinnia had tried to reach out, her friend had always politely declined. Zinnia had been lost without her closest confidant for some time, but she'd regained herself even if she'd never forgotten Myra. Zinnia always made it a point to call or text, though of course as the years had gone by she'd reached out less and less. Still, she'd been unable to give up those memories and a few times a year, she still messaged her old friend. Myra's birthday, the holidays, sometimes even just at random when she'd run into something that reminded her of their childhood. It wasn't often enough, but she hoped at least it might bring some joy to her friend's day every once and a while.

Not a week ago Zinnia had come across something that had reminded her of Myra and of course, she'd sent the other woman a text saying so. Until then, Myra had always replied with a typical response, something along the lines of being glad to be thought of or something else to acknowledge Zinnia's text without giving her any real hope to see her again. This time however when Zinnia had suggested they meet up and reconnect, Myra had told her it sounded like a fine idea. Zinnia had reread the text message several times, not quite believing it. Even today she'd taken her phone out more than once to read their conversation to remind herself she hadn't dreamt it up. Zinnia grinned as she did just that, pulled out her cell phone to reread their plans. They were going to meet at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and if there was time afterwards, stop for coffee. Both of them were extremely busy women these days, but Zinnia had every intention of spending the day with her friend so long as the other had the time.

Finally she'd arrived and after thanking her driver, stepped out of the car. She stopped playing with her necklace, smoothing her hair as she took a quick look around to orient herself. Myra had suggested they meet in the green house, which of course Zinnia had agreed to. It was a structure that she knew she wouldn't have a difficult time finding and she made her way straight there.

The gardens were beautiful and the weather was crisp and lush. This was beautiful compared the the heat of July and August and it was the perfect time for such an outing. Zinnia found her way to the green house without any trouble, taking a deep breath at its entrance. She hadn't seen Myra in so long save catching a glimpse of her at this function or that. She knew who she was looking for of course, but that little pang of anxiety crept into her heart as well. They'd been estranged for so long, what if their friendship simply wasn't meant to last into adulthood? Zinnia wasn't the same person she'd been as a child and she was sure Myra, too had grown up into a completely different person. Hopefully there was still enough left of the both of them to find some measure of solace within one another. Zinnia put on a smile, entering the green house with a light step. This was going to be wonderful, she had faith.

Myra's blonde hair stood out and Zinnia spotted her immediately. A wave of relief washed over her for no real reason other than Myra looked and felt so much like their youth. It was one of those feelings that warmed her heart. "Myra!" She called out, seeking the others attention as she came up to her. Once upon a time they'd hugged each other tightly and Zinnia reached out, unable to stop herself though she knew she probably should have asked first. She squeezed the other woman quickly, releasing her soon after in case the other wasn't as comfortable with such things any longer. Zinnia still wore a huge smile, clearly glad to see her friend. "How are you? I hope you haven't been waiting long."

almost as soon as the thought had popped into her head did she spot her old friend. zinnia and myra went way back to a time when myra wasn't her cold self. she watched as she entered through the doors and it was like time had reversed itself to a previous moment. "myra!" zinnia had yelled out her name and the corners of her mouth turned upwards. she'd welcomed the embrace and lost herself for a moment. the tension she had was melting away, leaving only the happiness they once had.

to myra, zinnia had been like a little sister to her. someone that she got to play with while their parents talked about the arts and charity events. she remembered running down the art galleries hall to feel the innocence that was childhood. the two pulled apart and myra stared, with a little tear in her eye, and forced herself to talk. "it's been ages," myra looked at her friend up and down to realize how much they both had changed. "i'm sorry." she kicked her foot at the flooring and felt her cheeks get hot. apologizing was not her strong suit, but something about her friend made a small light inside of her. myra looked at zinnia and honestly meant every word. how she constantly pushed her away, ignored her calls, and even went so far as publicly avoid the art house completely.

"i am sorry that i was an ass and ignored you after everything. this got a little, well, complicated..." her voice trailed off as she smiled again. myra had called zinnia to talk about life and catch up with someone who knew her on a deep level. sure, odin was always there for a night out, but she really needed some girl time. she wanted to know everything that was going on and what she had been up to. she'd heard a rumor that she left for some time and wanted to really connect again. you can't be all evil all the time otherwise it'd be boring.

myra turned on her heel and took a few steps through the greenhouse to see everything that it had to offer. "how have you been?" perhaps it was too hopeful of myra to think everything could have been swept under the rug and all to be forgiven. yet, she would completely understand that anger zinnia could have at her for being a jerk.

Myra had returned the embrace with just as much fervor and for that Zinnia was eternally grateful. Time could easily have stolen away their closeness, both of them having grown into two completely different people than they once had been. Thankfully when Zinnia pulled away from the other, Myra had a smile on her face and a tear in her eye. Of course this only caused tears to spring up into Zinnia's eyes as well, even though she'd told herself she wasn't going to let her emotions get a hold of her. She held Myra's arms as the other gave a little kick to the floor, her cheeks reddening as she apologized. "Oh Myra no," she said, squeezing the other. "Don't apologize at all! It's fine. We're fine." She smiled even as her friend gave her an explanation. Zinnia wasn't surprised that Myra's life had become complicated, honestly. Her own was right up there with it these days what with how ill her father had gotten. She had her own business in one hand, trying so hard to make it on her own and then of course her father's as well. Things were difficult and she knew she wasn't the only one going through hard times. Zinnia had so few close friends and more than once in the past few months she'd longed to see Myra's face. It was what had made her message the other in the first place and now she was more than glad she had.

Myra slipped from Zinnia's grasp, taking a few steps away to observe the beautiful greenhouse in which they'd met up in. Zinnia let herself do the same as she dashed her own tears away. Myra let her gaze settled on her again, asking her how she'd been and Zinnia beamed at the other. She closed the distance between them and hooked her arm into Myra's just like she had when they were children. Myra had always been the taller and today in her gorgeous heels, she was still the taller of the two. "Alright. Busy. You know how life gets," she said with a little chuckle. She hadn't delved too much into what Myra had been up to lately, always trying to give the other privacy rather than to stick her nose where it didn't belong. Zinnia wasn't the sort to go sleuthing through the internet for information on people or what they were doing. Social media held so many falsifications that she didn't want to let any of that feed her opinion on someone. Zinnia had always given people the benefit of the doubt, someone who came to her own conclusions rather than letting someone else tell her what she should think or who she should trust.

"Went to college, did some traveling. I opened my own business! Neverland Photography. Finally putting all those hours of snapping candids to good use." She said grinning. Zinnia had several photo albums tucked away in her apartment that had a million photographs of herself and Myra. Despite how long the two had been estranged, there was still a particular photo of the two of them during a birthday party that sat on a shelf in Zinnia's living room. There were many people who had touched her life, but so few who had been such a fundamental part of her youth as Myra was. She was overjoyed that her friend had finally conceded to reconnecting and she hoped that this was the first of many more visits. "What about you, Myra? How's life been treating you?" Zinnia asked brightly, eager to hear all about her friend's life, her ups and downs and anything else the other wished to share.

their arms linked together as the walked around the green house with myra carefully not touching the plants. With her emotions a little out of whack there was no telling what curse she'd place on the plants. not that she wanted too, but it was a little uncontrollable at times. how was it that in a past life she had been a queen of all things evil and she couldn't even keep herself from killing plants. myra's eyes shifted to look towards her, now taller, friend and wondered to herself. there was no one who she could truly talk to about the battle raging inside of her. in all honesty, she had reached out towards her old friend to talk to her about it, but perhaps this was not the time.

a grin made it's way to myra's face as her zinnia talked about opening her own photography business. neverland photography. sounded quite wonderful and she was her own boss which meant that zinnia could have all sorts of freedom. myra wasn't one to do any form of labor unless it was being the wing woman for odin which could at times be quite a bore. "i'm so proud of you zinnia," myra's voice was soft and heartfelt. she honestly was proud with a hint of admiration thrown in there. "where did you travel to? would you believe i have yet to leave new york?"

zinnia asked about what myra had been up to. myra nodded in response to her statement. busy. yeah, she definitely knew how that was and with all this planning of galas and charity events. not to mention that she hadn't actually spent time with her father in years. it was sort of like she didn't even have one anymore. myra felt like she needed to reply to her or give her something more about her own self. "honestly, i've seen better days, but i'm doing alright." she decided to change the subject to a more upbeat topic and give some time for girl talk. "i got this invitation to a masquerade gala being hosted next week. i don't honestly know what to wear. are you going?"

Zinnia felt her cheeks redden as Myra told her that she was proud of her. That meant so very much to her in a way she couldn't rightly explain. She'd looked up to Myra as a young person and to hear her friend say those words, especially after so long apart, it filled her with a joy that was hard to describe. She told herself she wasn't going to cry and she dabbed at the corner of her eye with a knuckle. "Oh Myra," she said softly, her smile bright, "that means the world to me!" She tightened her hold on her friend's arm as they continued through the gardens. Zinnia hadn't visited here in a long while, but she found herself wholly distracted by Myra. In the years since their friendship had waned, Zinnia had come across a great number of people but she had made very few close friends. She had a number of acquaintances, people she could call to go out (not that she ever had the time), but few who she'd ever really connected with. This was what she missed, being completely engrossed in someone else, just being so happy to see them and to hear how they were doing. Zinnia hadn't realized just how much she'd missed her friend until now.

"Truly?" Zinnia responded when Myra admitted that she hadn't been out of New York. "I haven't been out of the city in some time, really only when I went abroad. I traveled to Africa, volunteered with a group that went over there to dispense medicine, build hospitals and schools and the like. Learned a lot while I was there. It was a humbling experience, to be sure," she nodded lightly, but moved on from that conversation. She could easily lose herself in talking about the problems of the world, but that wasn't what she wanted to do right now. She wanted to hear about Myra and her life, what she'd been doing and what she was going to do in the future.

Zinnia tried not to frown as Myra told her she'd seen better days. She itched to press the other, to ask what was the matter and how she could help but she suppressed the urge. If Myra agreed to meet her again, to spend another day with her or more, she'd ask. She didn't want to overwhelm the other, didn't want to seem too needy for her attention. It had been so very long and she didn't want to drive her away. Talk of the upcoming gala began then and Zinnia pulled the smile back to her face. The Gala. She would be attending the Gala with Octavian and the idea thrilled her to no end. "Same! I got one through father, of course. I'm definitely going, but I haven't gotten any shopping done for it in the least." She raised and eyebrow, looking at Myra with a curious smile. "Would you like to go shopping later...?" she asked, her voice hopeful. It had been forever since she'd actually gone shopping and made a day of such frivolous, wonderful things.
