    Nike's smile slips.
    Um... y-you, uh... what?
    She blinks, confused.

    Uh oh.

    Dessa doesn't seem to mind, taking the position that Arianna wasn't with them at that point, so there's no reason at all she shouldn't have done so, and looks confusedly at Nike, wondering what's bothering her.

    That makes her feel a little better, kind of...
    Somewhat surprisingly, she snuggles closer to Ari, her breath warm in her ear.
    B-but... why didn't you wait, Ari?
    Did you not like what you heard about me?

    ((I think the girls would have at least been told about each other, if not having had text contact at least.))

    ((I had been going on the assumption that while they may have been told about each other before the wedding, learning about all this in the first place was rather sudden; that this was more the culmination of a series of fairly recent negotiations than an 'arranged from birth' type thing. But it looks like Lixie has the deciding vote on that, so no real way to tell right now, I suppose.))

    I'd figured that maybe they found out at different times. Perhaps Nike's tech people (We really need official faction names. You two need to write infodumps. :P) came up with the idea months or even years ago, and suggested it to Dessa's people months or weeks ago, who managed to persuade the Unity weeks ago, and Ari has known she was chosen for days, or a week at most. That way, Nike can have been waiting for this for ages, and ari and dessa can be all like 'well this is sudden'.

    Dessa shifts over to the other side of Arianna, going to gently hug Nike, if everyone's relative positions would let her do so without dislodging the synthgirl.

    "I don't know about you, Nike, but I didn't learn about this until a week ago, and even then I wasn't really told all that much about who I was going to be marrying; I'd guess Arianna had something similar happen to her..."

    She hugs back, nodding, moving through to concern now.
    "I didn't know there was going to be a wedding until... I think it was a month ago. But I didn't know it was going to be me until..."
    She pauses, and thinks.
    "Four days."

    Do you? Do you really?
    She bites her lip; she takes love very seriously and doesn't like the idea of the term being used casually.

    Ari blushes, stammering, and worry flashes in her head.
    "I... um... I..."

    She considers lying, very aware that unlike everyone else she's met, she can. (Well, she'd be bad at it, but she doesn't know that.)
    But she doesn't want to hurt them.
    "I... no... I'm sorry... you're sweet and pretty and... this was wonderful, but we only just met. I need more time..." she says, apologetically.

    Nike gently tries to slip an arm under Ari and snuggle her close so she's laying front-to-front on top of the synth.
    I understand, sweets. It's been less than 12 hours, after all...
    If I'm to be honest, I'm still in the process of falling. In terms of falling in love and all.

    She smiles at Dess.

    "It was faster than I expected, I admit... I hope I'm right. Hard to tell when you have no experience, y'know? But even if I am wrong right now, I think I'm at least in the same boat the rest of you are."


    She sounds somewhat unsure of herself, not having really gotten beyond good friends or quick relationships before, as well as hopeful that she isn't wrong, since she really doesn't want to disappoint the synth.

    Tonight? I hear there's a lowgrav nightclub nearby and they have a silent disco tonight.
    That is, instead of playing music through speakers, everyone hears it through wireless headphones. Reduces noise pollution, lets you have conversations without having to YELL OVER THE MUSIC WHAT I CAN'T HEAR YOU and it exists in real life.

    ((I think when she saw how adorable Dess and Ari were during the wedding service that morning, she thought "Aww, I wanna take them home with me! ... Wait, I am taking them home with me! Yay!"))
