It'd been awhile since Rose was this excited for a day at the spa. In the beginning, working alongside Aloe was all the excitement she needed. Then it was the experience- although... Lingering memories of unpleasant times occasionally clawed their way to the forefront of her mind, she was always able to focus on the present and enjoy the moment. She learned a lot, and got to advertise some of her own solutions in the process. A lot of the novelty had faded over repeated cycles, but that didn't mean she enjoyed the work any less. Today, however, wasn't one of those days. Today, they were getting a special customer, of a species she couldn't recall encountering in either of her lifetimes: they were being visited by a kelpie. Coltic lore painted them as bewitching beauties with carnal appetites, akin to a changeling crossed with a siren, but other sources made them out to be the spawn of a leviathan and chaos. She wasn't sure which held more water, other than the proven fact that this creature was evidently made of the substance. To those ends, she had prepared a few things. Run a few... Covert tests, while of course enduring her patrons comfort to the best of her ability. When this patron arrived, she'd still be busy making some minor final preparations. Hopefully Aloe could handle reception. She was good at that.
Once she had made her way to her room and got everything settled in, Ice Storm found herself wanting a little bit more R&R. She had heard mention in the brochure that the spa here was among the best that money could offer. She could only wonder if Aloe and her sister had any hooves in setting it up because as far as she was concerned they had the best spa that you could go to period. They had everything there, and even some extra excitement to go along with it. It was Ponyville after all; always something going on there. It definitely wasn't the small village that it used to be wince Twilight's Castle had been put there. She dare say that it was more like a smaller Canterlot now. She stepped out of her room and started to look at the map to try to figure out how to get to the spa. She wanted to get there as early as she could to get a decent place in line. She already had her idea lined out. She wanted the fullest of the full treatments. She looked at her brochure and well, she might as well have had everything circled on it. She was definitely going to be dropping a good hoofful of bits when she got there. Thankfully she came prepared and pulled out extra for this vacation. If she was gonna pamper herself, she was gonna pamper herself large. After a bit of a trek through the resort she soon found herself at her destination and began to make her way inside. She was more than a bit excited and hoped there wouldn't be too big of a line... but would be a line... she wanted to make some new friends while she was here to and if there was no lone, who would she get to meet and talk with?"
[colour=#ff66cc]It was just past the break of dawn. Today, marked the start of the busiest month that the Ponyville Day Spa sees every year. The annual Spring and Summer Spectacular! Aloe had woken up exceptionally early today to make sure that everything was ready and perfect by the time the doors were set to open so that even the very first customers had the absolute best experience possible. She quickly put the last few finishing touches on her advertising banner. It was done up in the same colours as her coat and mane, with the contrasting cerulean , mixed with the pale rose background, with a border of vines seemed to do the trick for her, and was sure to grab the attention of potential customers. With a quick flip of the lock, she opened the door and placed it outside on her right side so that customers could see it as they walked in. She walked a bit out into the market to make sure the writing was legible from a distance. "Ponyville's Spring and Summer Spectacular!! All treatments and products at fifty-percent their normal price!" Looks good enough to me. It's not even completely light yet and I can read it, she thought to herself as she went back inside and locked the door once again to finish the preparations. [/colour] [colour=#ff66cc]She went through the lobby of the spa to make sure that every balm, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, oil, and all other beauty supplies were stocked as full as she could get them while making sure that all of the guides were in place as well. She knew that this was going to be a very long wait, as it normally was on the first day, so she also made sure to have ample magazines, and entertainment for those awaiting to be serviced. Where is Lotus! I know that mare loves to sleep in, but this is our single most busiest day of the year... she thought to herself as her head dropped in a sigh. Celestia's sun finally peeked over the horizon and began it's ascent into the azure sky.

(OOC: This is a Continuation from Carrots and Conversations.) [colour=#ff33cc]After everything that she had seen Miss Harvest go through today, Aloe wanted to make sure that her experience at the spa was going to be one of the best she's ever had. She had already made it up in her mind that she wasn't going to charge her at all, not only for the spa pass, but for todays treatment as well, since she wasn't really expecting her to be in the mood for a trip so shortly afterward. That being said though, Aloe wanted to be as much help as she could. She couldn't imagine losing their spa and watching it crumble to the ground like she watched her stall do. I'll have to wait and she what she wants first so that I can make sure everything is at it's absolute freshest, and that the hot tubs were at the peak of temperature. Everything has to be perfect today," she thought to herself as she scanned everything to make sure that the jets in the hot tubs were all running correctly while making sure everything else was in place. She also began the delicate mixture for the mud bath that they had talked about before. She had every intention of giving her the select premium treatment today. The treatment that usually only Rarity or the occasional visitors from Canterlot could afford. [/colour]
