Courting the Princess

Post by Liam Farrell on Sat Dec 12, 2015 11:44 pm

Liam was glad he'd opted for a Firebird Chai from the Magic Bean -- today was chillier than he would have liked for a first date, but he couldn't conceive of calling the whole thing off because of a bit of cold wind. He smiled at Odette as they headed up the street, away from the coffeeshop. "So, where to first, Princess?"

Odette pulled her scarf up to her chin and hummed as she wrapped her fingers around her Swan Lake blend, letting the coffee's warmth spread through her hands. She had made sure to dress in layers today, with a dress, cardigan, scarf and a peacoat, but perhaps leggings under her dress would've been a good idea.

"The thrift s-store and the Grotto aren't far from here, b-but we can go all the w-way to the petshop and work our way b-back towards the castle if that's easier."

Liam nodded, clenching his teeth to keep them from chattering. "The second works for me. I'll follow your lead."

Odette nodded, smiling more with her eyes than her lips as she strode ahead. She sipped her coffee and turned every now and then to nod to someone she recognized as they walked towards the pet shop, which was on the opposite side of town from Dunehelden campus.

Liam walked calmly at her side, sipping his chai and taking in the scenery that was still new to him after a few months of being here. How had it been that long already? It felt like a few weeks, if anything.

"I can't remember if I've asked this yet," he said, looking back at Odette. "How long have you been a student here?"

"This is my third year," Odette said, then shivered as a gust of wind hit them. "I enrolled as a f-fr-freshman."

Liam nodded, tightening his hold on his tea and bracing himself against the wind. "This is our first -- mine and Eve's. We found Lakeshore right near the end of this past August. Makes me wonder what this place is like in the rest of the summer."

Odette slowed her walk a bit. "It's wonderful here," she mumbled. "I've b-been all over Europe, but L-Lakeshore is my f-favorite place." Her eyes dropped to the sidewalk, and she sighed before taking a sip of her coffee.

"Even though it m-means I'm away from m-my nana most of the t-t-time."

Liam was silent, his throat tightening as he thought of his parents. He still didn't know how time was working for them back in Ireland while he was here. Maybe it was better if he didn't know. "I know the feeling. This is the longest Eve and I have been away from our parents, too."

Odette tugged her beanie further down over her ears and grumbled into her coffee. "L-Lots of people in Lakeshore are lost. Or r-runaways. Or exiles. I th-think a m-majority of the people here would know the f-feeling."

She lifted her head and grinned at him. "S-sorry for bringing the mood d-down, you g-guys."

Liam shrugged and smiled back, quietly grateful that she addressed him and Eve in the plural. "Not your fault. I'm just glad to know we're not alone, you know?"

Odette nodded and smiled at the Grotto as they passed it. She made a mental note to buy another of the rose quartz points for Baram.

"H-have you been to the p-pet shop before? Last time I visited they h-had a basset hound with a lizard tail and he could b-breathe underwater."

Liam laughed in surprise and shook his head. "No, can't say I have. Heard a bit about it, though. Fire-breathing kittens and things like that."

Another nod from Odette. She sipped from her coffee and hummed as she skipped a bit. It had been a while since her last foray into town that wasn't related to work or school, and doing so with new friends made the whole thing better.

"One time they said they had a m-mer-dog, and when they took it out for a walk it turned out to just b-be a seal. I'm sure that one was Sam's idea."

Liam chuckled. "I bet someone was embarrassed to figure that out. Who's Sam?" He wasn't sure he'd met them yet.

"One of the headmistress's f-fosters. She's worked at the shelter for a while." Odette turned around so that she could face Liam as she walked. "D-did you have any pets at home?"

Liam nodded. "We had a cat for a while, but he died of old age a couple years ago. His name was Finley."

Odette's brow furrowed a bit. She didn't have a response to that, so she faced forward again and occupied herself with her coffee as she continued to lead the way to the shelter.

Liam noticed her silence and tilted his head. "Guess it's my turn to bring the mood down, huh? Sorry."

"Hm?" Odette looked over her shoulder and smiled as she readjusted her scarf. "N-no, a pet lost to old age is sad, but n-natural. I just d-didn't have a response."

Liam nodded, raising his chai to his lips again. "That's fair."

Eve giggled. /I wonder what Mum and Da would think if you brought home some kind of magical pet when we get back?/

Liam grinned. "Might depend on the kind of pet. And whether I'm able to give them any warning beforehand."

Odette, who had started to skip ahead again, faltered and made a tiny kitten noise as she turned her head to give Liam a curious look. "Mm? What was that?"

Liam grinned at her. "Just talking with Eve about the possibility of bringing home a magical pet. Mum and Da might have some interesting reactions."

"Probably not, no." He shook his head and pushed his hair out of his face. "Especially not without a way to fireproof the carpets and curtains."
