"You obtuse and self-centered girl." Illya complained yet again.
"I have no idea what you’re talking about." Lydia said in a high and mighty voice before she threw yet another dress on the floor
Illya took a deep breath before he slowly picked up the dress from the floor, "Didn’t your mother teach you how to behave..?" He thought aloud, but Lydia didn’t seem to hear, she had already moved along down the row of clothes.
"None of these are good enough for me, you have to make a new one. Immediately."
The blond man swore silently and cursed Napoleon for putting him in this situation. If it hadn’t been for his charming partner he wouldn’t have been in this mess, plagued by the worst woman in the history of women. "Fine, Miss. Will you please follow me and help me to draw your new dress?"

"Mr. Kuriakyn. Stop doing whatever you’re doing, I need your help." The whiny voice cut into Illya’s brain like a knife and he looked pleadingly at Napoleon.
