Had the woman phrased it as 'go get some new clothes so you blend in better' Mulan would probably have dug her heels in and protested that there was nothing wrong with her clothes - leather and metal armour was perfectly practical in her line of work as a freelance hero and she'd saved and scrimped for over a year to get hers custom made with decoration reflecting her heritage, achievements and personal taste. Besides which she'd worn some variant of the armour she currently wore all her adult life and the idea of setting it aside would have taken her breath away from shock.

So the woman, sensible to the adjustment period needed by the sudden new arrivals in town, had kindly handed over the clothing vouchers, pointed out that Mulan had arrived in the clothes (armour) she was stood up in and nothing else and that unless she planned to sleep in her armour or go naked while her underthings were being cleaned she was going to need to grab a few bits and pieces. The woman had even very kindly steered her towards a shop - decent quality, not too expensive so Mulan could pick up a good range of stuff - and had intended to help her find some new things but at the door had had to run off to deal with a crisis somewhere else. From what Mulan understood of the side of the conversation she could hear (the woman was talking into some sort of intriguing but baffling magic box she held up to her ear) someone had had an even worse introduction to the town than she had. But then, as she'd confidently told the woman as she apologised and asked if Mulan thought she'd be ok on her own, she'd always been good at coping with difficult situations.

Had she seen the lingerie section from the door she might have changed her mind about that one.

The shopping trip did not start out too bad as she went straight from the doorway into the t-shirt section and although the fabric felt strange under her hands, the styles were bemusing to her and the choice was overwhelming she sort of knew what everything was.She even tentatively picked out a couple of shirts she thought might do for wearing under her armour although as she was still wearing the armour at that moment in time she had little idea how they'd actually fit her. The things seemed to come in sizes but that didn't really mean anything to her and she almost thought it would be easier to buy them then take them in as she required.

Then she turned a corner and came face to face with a rack of tights. She'd never heard of the things before although she'd encountered both socks and stockings and stood staring in utter bewilderment and dismay, trying to make sense of nude, sheer, dernier knit, support, fishnet and ladder resistant - some of the words made sense in isolation but together just sat in a confusing jumble. Lost and not entirely sure she needed tights anyway she looked around, out the window as it happened and froze.

The two potential shirts she'd picked up ended up draped on a display of tank tops as she almost ran to the door, hitting it hard enough to jar her outstretched hand and spilling out onto the street in a rush.
"Neal!" She shouted, sure she had the right person - her old friend - and determined not to miss a friend and point of sanity in this increasingly confusing mess.

Neal had been spending his morning working at the garage, he knew that he had a lot more work to do on the latest car that had been brought in. But, he knew that he had the whole thing worked out, but, he would finish up tomorrow.

He had decided to stop by Granny's, and, then decide to pay a visit to Emma. To see if he could catch some time to spend even a few minutes with her. Since they were engaged, and, they really should have a chance to spend time just the two of them with no problems getting in the way of any of this. Neal was happy to even take it with sitting in the Station while she did some of her sheriff work, he was ok with that because he could just stare at her, and, be with her.

Neal knew that it was a bit of a walk between the garage and Granny's, before even getting to the station, but, he didn't mind. And, he just kept his hands in his pockets as he enjoyed the sights of the town a bit more. It was a nice, and, relatively peaceful day which was ok with him, even if it was somewhat rare in a place like this.

As he continued to walk, Neal looked at some of the windows in this place. Neal was making some notes for where abouts to possibly go for some of the wedding shopping stuff. Not that he knew anything about the wedding dress stuff, or that he cared. But, it would be good for him to make a note for him to tell Emma later on.

While he was passing one shop, Neal heard his name being called out, and, he stopped and turned around. He let out a soft smile as he spotted Mulan looking at him. “Mulan, hey.” Neal said, moving himself closer to her, and, keeping his hands in his pockets.

Now that she'd got her old friend and questing partner's attention she wasn't quite sure what to do with it. By the standards of the Empire she was one of the most demonstrative and passionate people she knew - no one else would have run out a door shouting someone's name, except perhaps her sworn sister - but by the standards of the rest of the world? She was quite sure Aurora and Phillip thought her the most calm and restrained person they knew.

So she approached a little too fast by the standards of her home (a brisk walk), stood far too close (less than an arm's length away) and was far too emotional (she smiled). She didn't bow but she didn't hug him either, instead holding out a hand like Phillip used to do when greeting friends and equals. It was probably the right gesture, even if she wasn't entirely comfortable with it, and she was both relieved and a little disappointed that he hadn't hugged her like Aurora used to. They didn't have that sort of relationship, she knew, and she'd have been alarmed if he did hug her, but all the same she missed being hugged even if she'd never dare initiate it.

"I got here earlier today." She said, as if her presence here in full armour didn't say as much when everyone else, people she knew she recognised from the Enchanted Forest, were in clothes like the ones Neal was wearing. They looked... comfortable, she supposed, but she still wasn't sure she wanted to trade in her armour for clothes like that. Especially not as she had no idea what to expect of the town, from the way the few residents she'd met so far spoke of it the entire place was prone to disasters of a magical nature and if there were going to be those flying around she'd rather keep the armour and be even more strange than usual.

Speaking of unusual though...

"Via tornado." She admitted with a slight wince, as if she'd had a say in the matter of her being transported here. At least it hadn't done any obvious damage to the town when it dropped her off, just blew a few things around. It was not a topic she wished to dwell on however and she reached for the next (and for her verging on personal) question. "How are you? And Emma?"

Neal smiled softly as he noticed Mulan simply holding out a hand as a gesture in response to their re-meeting. He was used to informal greetings, due to the whole lack of closeness and love thing. He didn't even remember that he'd missed being hugged, until he had met his son, and, gotten hugged by him for the first time. But, the two of them didn't have that kind of relationship, even if he did owe her big time for her attempt to try to help him get back to Emma and Henry. So, he may end up hugging her later, but, he just shook her hand for now.

“Well then. Welcome to Storybrooke.” Neal said, giving a soft smile, and, gesturing to the town itself. He noticed that she seemed to be in the same armour that she had worn when they had first met, of course that wasn't a surprise, when he had first gotten to this world he had been in the clothes that he had worn back in the Forest, but, he had been stuck in those for like 6 months, before he met the Darlings. Although with some of the stuff that happened in this town, maybe armour would be better, safer really.

“I've heard of stranger ways people got here.” Neal gave, hopefully a comforting smirk. Neal knew that if there was any kind of damage, Emma would've gotten the call that came to the station. It was as if she read his mind when his thoughts went to Emma, because of the next question that came out of her mouth. “Yeah, we're better then good. And I owe you a thanks for that.”
