Kael put his head down from peeping and thought to himself, "What am I a stalker? Get it together Kael." He quietly rolled to the hedge of the garden and jumped over making sure not to be spotted. He then stood up and walked to the front of Astrid's house. He took a deep and cleared his throat before knocking on the door. As he stood there waiting for someone to answer the door, the anticipation was killing him. He never felt so nervous and excited at the same time.

As Alice wandered the cottage and garden, Astrid stayed inside and read through her books to find a cure to her friend's afflictions. She heard each of Alice's outbursts, but simply shook her head and smiled. "You should try to relax, it's bad to get your heart worked up," Astrid advised teasingly. "There's a saying from your world, 'No news is good news.' I'm sure he's alright." She closed her books and went into the kitchen to start making dinner. Astrid was in the middle of making a stew when she heard a knock at the door. "Oh, now who could that be?" she mumbled to herself. "Alice, could you answer the door for me please? I have to keep stirring this, to make sure it doesn't burn."

Alice head turned inquisitively to door as Astrid went to answer it. She was relieved honestly if Astrid had customers maybe it would help occupy her mind with something other then worry. She knew she was bubble head if she took her time to compare herself to others, she was probably being generous with that descriptor. Yet she was sure that Kael was good person who deserved a better life the one it had sounded like he had gotten. Foolish and naive but to her it was simple fact built on compassion and maybe even longing.

Alice blinked as the thought of longing came into her head. Did she really long to be with Kael, that hadn't know each other that long. Alice felt that nervous not in the pit of her stomach as her cheeks flushed warmly. If this was love as Astrid had suggested it was the strangest feeling she had ever encountered. Love or not one thing was certain Kael was her friend and she was worried about him.

"Sweep Alice, you can sweep that's what you can do to help for now.. "

Alice picked up a broom and began to idly clean the floors of Astrid's shop.

Kael stood there as the nervousness feeling was being replaced with frustration. He attempted to knock again, this time a little slower and with more force. He was still trying to deny what just happened to him a few moments ago. As he waited there he put the thoughts out of his head and realized he doesn't even remember why he was here. Motionless, he searched for a good excuse of why he could possibly be at a women's house he doesn't even know this late at night. He pulled out the letter from his cloak and read it with concentration, before a light bulb went off. He thought to himself as he put the letter away, "I know. I'll simply say I was lost and ask for directions to this place." Kael continued to stand there still waiting for someone to answer.

Alice blinked as the person on the other side knocked louder pulling her out of herself. The blonde sheepishly smiled as Astrid suddenly realizing that she had been asked to get the door. Alice shook her head and scolded herself as she carefully put the broom back down. She put a welcoming smile on her face.

"Welcome to Astrid's stop how can.."

Alice stopped her min introduction when Kael face was now stareing back her. Her heart skipped a beat momentarily, and like that all her anxiety had faded.

"Kael! I'm so glad to see you, are you ok? Did you find the cove? You didn't have any problems did you? Or did you find someone nice? Or maybe it wasn't what you wanted, and you needed something else? Did you come back her to get a healing potion or something for your wounds? It is healing all right isn't?" "


A thousands questions that had filled her thoughts earlier easily rolled off her tongue without stop. The pacing between them barely gave her time to breathe let alone let poor Kael answer.

Kael's impatience was getting the best of him and right when he was getting ready to knock again, the door open. Kael stood there frozen for a minute when Alice answered the door. He was expecting the lady that owned the house to knock on the door. He tried to play it cool, but the feelings were overriding that ability as his frozen posture melted shortly after Kael heard Alice's barrage of question. He grew to like her rambling. He smiled as he stood there listening waiting until she was done. Then, he put his hands on Alice's shoulders, took a deep breath, and said, " Breeeath Alice," he modeled it out as he said it.

Alice took an over exaggerated deep breath, before rolling up her left hand into a fist and bopping herself lightly on the temple.

"There I go again..Sorry about that .."

Alice giggled sheepishly.

"So ummm ..hi Kael."

Kael shook his head from side to side, "Don't apologize. I like...," he stopped himself before he finished realizing what he almost let slip, "I mean hello. I'm glad to see you aren't harmed". He moved his hands when he saw they were still on Alice's shoulder and blushed a little, " Sorry." Kael started answering all the questions he could remember, " I'm okay. Yes, I made it to hunter's cove. I met a few people. Oh and I got a new shirt." He held up his shirt so Alice could see that the wound had healed and was now a scar and put it back down, " I'm healed completely thanks to you so uh thank you."

Alice sighed in relief seeing the wound was on its way to proper recover. It was one of her biggest concerns that maybe she did care of the wound as good as she thought she did. Or even worse, the thought that someone had used his injuries to their advantage.

"I'm glad. I'm sure someone like you will have many new friends here in no time .."

She gave a happy smile as she pulled a few strands of hair behind her left ear.

"So I'm sure you didn't really expect to see me, your probably need something for the shop right and I've delayed your progress. Sorry, there I go takeing all your time again."

Alice moved out of Kael path to allow him proper entrance into Astrid's store. She rocked back and forth on her heels, swinging her arms softly in time. She had really wanted to see Kael, to know he was ok and now that here there was still so many things she wanted to do. Her thoughts collided reckless together leaving her unable to do any and was left in an insecure clueless fashion.

Kael laughed, " Me making friends?" As he came down he still had a smile on his face from laughing, " I'm not really much of a people person per say....you're the only exception, " he hesitated hoping he say something to make her uncomfortable. It was true, Kale usually wasn't nice or sociable, but he couldn't help it with Alice. He looked in a little when Alice stepped to the side, "What is this place? I actually came here to...." He pulled out the letter of instructions from his cloak, "Get directions." Then, he smiled at Alice in away that would light up the room, "Plus I told you I'd come find you."

"This place it's Astrid's shop. She sells, potions and charms and spells and stuff like that. She was the one with me in Little Woods. She's also the one who gave me the items to help nurse your wounds so well. Directions, I know the streets and stuff pretty well but as far as the whose who not so much. But Astrid probably would considering she does actually live in this area."

Alice made a sound that was cross between a giggle and squeal, she managed to keep it so quiet that it could easily be mistaken for a mouse.

""I'm glad you did, and surprised you managed to find me so quickly. But I guess those tracking skills of yours its what's going to make you an excellent hunter around here. Though honestly I guess that shouldn't surprise me you probably the type that's good at anything you put your mind too."

Kael thought for a minute before a light bulb went off in his head, " Oh ok so her name is Astrid. There was so much going on at the moment I don't think I caught her name." Kael peaked inside again and then retreated, " I'm not so good with people and I don't want to bother her right now." Kael put his hand on his neck and reddened a little, " There are some things that I'm just not good at. Directions is one of them."Kael looked at the paper, "Could you show me where Bipty Bop street is.....please?"

"Bipty Bop..let see from here...yeah we stay on this street. Then take a left on Zipity Do Dah. After that it should be the fourth or fifth street on our right, if we reach Alazakam we've gone too far.."


Alice reached down and stroked Hector the cat as he passed over her feet back towards his mistress. She tilted her head over her should slightly.

""I''ll be right back Astrid, going to help Kael find Bipty Bop street."

With that she stepped out of the shop,closing the door behind her..and if only for a brief moment brought the two uncomfortable close together.

"So umm..what are you looking for exactly on Bipty Bop street? ."

Kael's heart race increased for that moment they were close. It was becoming a reoccuring thing for Kael to be nervous around Alice. He started walking as he talked trying not to stumble over his words, "Well, a client wants me to go to a house over there to run an errand," Kael knew Alice was a guardian and wouldn't approve of the "job" he took. Kael attempted to small talk, " So uhhh....what do you like to do for fun?"

Alice skipped a few feet behind Kael a moment before sashing a little head of him to lead the way. She turned around to face him but continued to walk, if there was one things she knew like the back of her hand it was the streets of Fable.

"Oddly, Fable itself is my freedom .. I'm free to be me without people seeing me as too scattered brained or odd. It's not people's fault back home they seem me that way I kind of don't help the situation cause I can't really tell me them you know like anything. But back at home I watch movies, listen to music. I don't get out much when home so like I said Fable is my freedom which makes it hard to leave it when its time to go home. Especially since here almost everyday is new adventure, its kind of exciting to see what a new sunrise will bring. Which reminds me Mom's probably getting worried I don't think I've left Fable for a few days now. At least I thinks its been a few days...Either way I probably should, or at least use Astrid to send a message back to let her know I'm all right. What about you Kael what's fun for you?"
