Noor Abelló

Hefting her laundry bag over her shoulder, Noor flicked her eyes across the laundromat she had entered. Despite the fact that it was pretty divey, it was one of the few public places she could go that didn't seem to alert every monster in a five-mile radius that a demigod was in residence when she used the vending machine. Remembering her manners, Noor allowed her gaze to linger on the patrons. The few that were there seemed wholly engrossed in ignoring everyone around them, leaning against the stacked washing machines and staring out the windows or fiddling with their phones. A quick once-over of their surface thoughts certified the fact that none of them were particularly interested in starting a conversation. Sighing slightly, she tipped her laundry out onto the counter and resigned herself to sorting her colours and darks in silence.

sab heaved her bag of laundry over her shoulder with a grunt. she nudged the door open; the bell above rang sharply. the laundromat smelled strongly of detergent and cat piss, making her nose scrunch up uncontrollably. the first thing she noticed was the people, or lack of them for that matter. off to the side, a girl was separating her clothes on the only counter. sab scanned the room for any more tables but, there was a lack of those also.

she emptied her bag next to her. it's contents avalanched, merging with the indian girls' piles. "sorry 'bout that, not really good at this laundry thing." sab picked up as much of her clothes as possible and tossed them into the closest washing machine. "anyway, i'm sab." she said, shoved a quarter into the machine and dumping nearly half a bottle of detergent on her wash.

Noor Abelló

Noor blinked out of her reverie as the girl stuffed her laundry haphazardly into the wash. "Um..." Noor murmured, tensing slightly as Sab topped off her fabric monstrosity with a generous helping of detergent. Her eye felt dangerously close to twitching as she considered the mess Sab was about to make of her clothes - especially now that she was fairly sure someof what the newcomer had grabbed were probably hers. Noor haltingly resumed folding and separating, tilting her head slightly at her companion. "I'm... Noor. That's - what are you - aren't you going to sort that?"

sab's eyes darted from her laundry to noor. "your supposed to - what? since when do you have to sort it?" her eyebrows furrowed. she'd never done laundry before, which explained her lack of knowledge on the subject. sab picked a soggy sweater out of the load, covered in blue soap. "i think this might be yours." it definitely wasn't hers; sab didn't wear pastel colors.

Noor Abelló

Yep, her eye was definitely twitching now. Noor gingerly took - oh, my gods, was that her favourite sweater - her mangled sweater from Sab, fighting the growing urge to turn tail and find a new, monster-free laundromat. Sure, the chances might be slim (okay, basically impossible), but it could be worth it in the long run, right? She assessed the other girl's thoughts. They weren't easy to pick out, but Noor could at least tell she'd meant no actual harm. Noor carefully folded the sweater and placed it in its proper pile, resigning herself to deal with it later. "Well," she said, her resolve solidifying. "Yeah. I mean, it helps to keep them apart so the dyes don't mix..." Noor's hands inched towards Sab's pile. "I could help - if you want, that is?"

sab stared at the apparent mess she'd made. detergent was flooding the washing machine and creating puddles around her clothes. picking out her work overalls, she looked back at noor. "um, what categories or whatever - what sections?" her gaze traveled to the demigods neatly folded piles. how the hades do you even wash clothes. sab let her clothing fall back into the soapy mess with a plop. "i don't need help, i just need to know how - what - where to put them." she stumbled over her words, her frustration growing rapidly.

Noor Abelló

Noor felt a pang of sympathy for the girl and tried not to let it show on her face. She shifted slightly so that she could get a better vantage point of the situation. "Okay, well, as far as piles go..." Noor reached over and plucked a few of her own items as an example. "The main ones are whites, lights, mediums, and darks. Then there's hots and colds - that's the temperature of the water you'd wash them in." She held up a dark print tee and a pale blouse. "See, since this shirt is dark, it needs a cold cycle so the dyes don't bleed. The blouse gets a cold wash too, since it's delicate, but it's also a lighter colour so it needs its own pile." Noor refolded her examples and set them down, humming in though. She paused slightly, turning to see Sab's reaction. "Is this making any sense, or...?"

"actually, can you uh, help me?" sab looked at the soggy mess. slowly, she started to pull clothes out of the machine. usually, she wouldn't ask for help but she couldn't afford to buy a whole new wardrobe so here she was. just as noor said, sab began placing the dark clothes in one pile. "i've never really uh, done laundry before. i usually just pay my sisters to do it.." house work just wasn't her thing. she dabbled more in the art of getting her hands dirty, repairing things.
