Phoebe was home, oh she was so happy. Of course she would still leave and get away to do other things, to see more of the town. To find well other things she wanted to find, as she didn't want to distract herself at this point of thinking about potential things that would never happen. She was too busy for a boyfriend or a girlfriend for that matter. Right now she had never been so happy to stand behind the counter and do nothing more but wait for customers to come. A few of the townspeople had passed by to come and say hello for she had been gone for two whole weeks and she told them about Era, Marigold and Hargeon and how she had loved the beach. Maybe she would take Mary along, she was sure her sister would love it but her dad would be then all by himself. That was the only problem to take Mary with her. Maybe for a few days, maybe until she had decided what to do.

She sighed but with a happy smile on her face as she swept the store, some people and their muddy feet but who cared. She heard the jinging of the door bell and looked up: a customer.

Since she now was in Orchidia, she would have to calm down. She had some answers, she had some way of thinking about well the things that were happening and it might be necessary for her to calm down and do some things, such as you know, find a new book to read or something. Which was something she had not bought when she had been with Ana. Which was fine, the shopping had been fine, the talking had been fine. It was nice to see someone that didn't know all the bad things that could happen lately and didn't need to talk about it. Not that she blamed herself from telling to others such as Tori. She did blame herself for being constant in that state of living. She would go mad if she would go on this way.

With a light thred she went through town to find a store that would sell books and she found an antique that sold all sorts of things, such as antiques, books but was also a sort of tea house. It at first reminded her of the tea and bagel spot in Magnolia but as she had thought before, she couldn't just go on and on about her bad moods all the time. She would get no where. So she headed inside. There was only one other person inside, a girl with long black hair and a broom, "Oh hello, this is open right?" she asked a bit nervous, she decided to lay low as well, to bother the citizen of Orchidia.. great.

The girl that entered had beautiful orange coloured hair in a wavy style that reached around the same height as Phoebe. She looked her up and down, she seemed to be tired but it could be just Phoebe who made that up in her mind. She wondered what a woman like her, perhaps they were the same age, would do in a town like Orchidia. "Oh no, don't worry. We are open. Have a look around. I was just cleaning up some mess." she said with a smile and quickly continued her job to throw the dirt outside and put the broom away because it seemed as if the woman was uncomfortable by the looks of it.

Phoebe would eye her from behind the counter, wondering if she should ask something, if she was looking for something perhaps. It would give her something to do. She heard some stumbling on the stairs and rolled her eyes when Mary hurried into the shop, almost out of breath for the quick walk, "We have a customer." she hissed to her sister for all the noise but Mary simplyl shrugged, that's when Phoebe noticed that her sister was wearing one of the new dresses that she had bought in Era and the lime green shoes, "What do you think you are doing!" already forgetting the customer because this meant that Mary had been in her room and had looked through her stuff. "I have a date." and her sister darted off before Phoebe could catch her, whom quickly looked at the orange haired lady, oops..

She didn't actually plan to buy anything from the antique shop that was bigger than a book but it couldn't hurt to try. She was walking through the items that the store showed, she hadn't come very far yet when she heard something that sounded like a noise from someone running off the stairs. Her ears quickly perched up and she looked up to see another girl appear, she looked a little younger than the first one but it were obvious that they were sisters. She would continue on her small stroll, looking over some jewelry that was there and she was sure one of the necklaces was haunted, she had an experience with the feeling as she had had a haunted blade.

She looked up again when she heard the eldest, as she thought explaim something about asking what the other sister was doing. She wondered if she and Lacie were ever like that and she couldn't help but stare on, the eldest was staring the younger one up and down, whom simply walked away with the information that she had a date. Well she looked great in that dress and heels. She followed the younger one with her eyes as she left the store only to turn back to see the other sister stare at her, "I believe that's your clothing? You have a date as well?"

Phoebe sighed as she didn't want to bother the one customer that seemed interested in the stuff at the shop instead of in her stories, "It sounds like you know sisters very well." she tried to say bright but she was really pissed off, if her sister would ruin those shoes or that dress, she would make sure that she would leave her behind forever! No matter where, had she just thought about taking Mary with her, well not anymore!

"It's just that I bought it a couple of days ago and barely had the time to wear it. It's not like I have a date, someone has to stay here at the shop. But the worst thing is, she has been in my room." she shrugged and walked away from the counter, "Would you mind a tea or anything? It's on the house, for bothering you with my sister." Phoebe suggested with a shrug, it was just tea, nothing special and she felt like a cup herself for she wanted to yell and scream about her sister at this point. She had missed her but it was greatly annoying to have her as well.

Alice frowned a little when the girl made a comment about that she knew sisters well. Actually she barely knew sisters, she didn't understand sisters and no one felt as a sister to her as the one she had, had betrayed her but she laughed it off and continued to walk through the store to make her not feel more uncomfortable. She looked up when she said she had no date but damn that had looked like expensive shoes, besides it were heels not Alice her favourite things and it made her think of Isabella, and she checked the footwear of the black haired girl at this moment. She would continue on when the question was asked about tea, she smiled towards her and nodded, "That would be lovely." but she seriously hoped that this wouldn't be a theraputic session about sister complains. She would walk around a little more before the tea was ready and headed to the other side of the shop that had the tea house part, "Well thank you ehm.." she wanted to say her name but obviously didn't know that. This was a good moment to introduce herself, "I'm Alice. Nice to meet you."

Phoebe went into the kitchen. It might not be smart to leave a customer alone in the shop, her father had always warned her for this but she was definitely hating on it. This is why she needed to get out of the store a bit. Though after her trip to Hargeon she doubted she would simply put things on fire if she was angry, now it was mainly if she was panicking and she wasn't panicking about lime green high heels. That was one thing for sure. She put the kettle on the fire and waited for it, she could if she took one step back see inside the shop, but the red haired woman was still looking through stuff and not running away with something. So Phoebe had a right feeling about being able to trust her.

She came with camomille tea a little later back into the shop and placed it on one of the tables as her customer had sat down. She had made a cup for herself as well, "Oh it's nothing. Sorry for bothering you with my sister." but she was surprised to learn the name of the stranger, she smiled happily, she was beautiful. Phoebe liked meeting pretty people, which made her shortly think of Victor but she didn't want to. "I'm Phoebe. It's nice to meet you as well." she sat down on the chair opposite Alice as she just dared to be that bold. "Anything you are looking for?" Yeah she was after all still the one that ran this shop at the moment, whetever her lime green shoes were somewhere else or not.

She had seen some other things that looked nice but it were mainly things she didn't need and weren't really nice if she would travel all the time but she thought about some jewelry after she had watched the set that was in the glass case on the last desk. Maybe she should dress up some time instaed of walking around in jeans all the time, maybe at some point. Would he appreciate that? She thought about it while she waited for the girl to return, as she did, Alice was a little quicker to a table. She was amused by the girl joining her but she wouldn't mind, at the moment she noticed how much alone she was when she and Konstantin were separate. And it wasn't because of him, she understood that, they both worked hard or avoided things and that was in this case important as well and she would just stare at her cup for now. So she was called Phoebe.

It took a while before Alice registered the question that was asked her, in her mind. "Oh. Well I was looking for a book, I travel a lot but a good book, there is always room for that." she dropped her little blue backpack of her shoulders and opened it to show, it contained one book and one journal, which was her diary but it was getting rather full and she might need to buy a new one for that too but she wasn't sure if she wanted to discuss that with Phoebe.

Phoebe looked at the small backpack and nodded. "We sell books. Perhaps not so much but we do have quite some. What do you like to read?" She might not look like someone who did read but she loved reading actually quite much, especially after troubled days or long walks. But it meant that she had to be active before she could read for it otherwise meant that she would be restless. She blew softly on her tea to make it cool down so she could do something else but she wanted to talk to this person. Alice didn't know her, so there was no protective feeling for her, nor questions about her stories, however she had just said that she traveleld a lot. "Are you in a Guild or something, because you travel a lot?" she asked curiously because she thought about it herself, the only guild that made sense in this case for location was Lamia Scale but she had always dreamed about Blue Pegasus.

That was another issue with Phoebe, she only liked things that were beautiful, this included people, seashells, flowers, clothing and so on. But she was also a curious mind and she wanted to hear about the travels this young woman had, because maybe she could learn something from it, no homesick feeling anymore. That would be lovely. She refrained from sighing by taking a sip of the tea, which actually could never be too hot for her as a fire starter but not everyone needed to know that.

With one last look in her backpack, she closed it again because she didn't want anyone to nose in her diary and so on. On the other hand, this was a store and she doubt Phoebe would do that. She held on to the cup and even though it was summer, she felt a little warmer thanks to it. The worries in her mind had not stopped and it was a bit difficult to be sure that everything would go alright. She sure hoped so and she never was one to worry much but here she was, talking to a stranger and yet worrying about so much. She casually waved a hand in her hair and untangled it soon as she tried to show casually that she was thinking, "I like reading classics. Of course I already read a few but there are lots of them, so I bet I'm good." she gave a small smile as she took another sip of her tea, which was really warm but it brought her back to her cautious actions.

"No I'm not in a Guild. I'm a mage though and do various jobs." it wasn't immediately coming up in her mind to tell she was a knight, she simply wanted to avoid that after the disasters of what happened in Orchidia. It would perhaps be a part of her life. She took a deep breath and let it go easily without putting attention to it. She placed her cup down and stood up to see the books that Phoebe had looked at. "Are you perhaps a mage? Looking for a guild?" Alice decided to ask Phoebe, for it would be a bit rude to suddenly stop talking. Her eyes scanned the book titles and she noticed a few she had read and a few that sounded interesting, but she only came for one. This was going to be difficult.

With the answer that she liked classics, Phoebe was a bit relieved, they were not up to date with the newest series but classics were no problem at all. She looked at the shelves and would just see what Alice would do now that the point of where they were was clear. She herself kept her lilac eyes on Alice as she found her rather mysterious, they seemed to be the same age but as where she got the vibe that Alice was much more responsible than she would ever be, she was still worrying about lime green shoes afterall. She turned a little to look at Alice as she stood up to check out the books, she hoped there was something for her there. Of course there was still the bookstore that she could go to.

"Yes, I mean I am a mage. Not really looking for a guild at the moment. I have other things to do. I did travel a bit, I went to see Era, Marigold and Hargeon at this point before I ran back because I missed my family. It felt so different being alone." Phoebe quickly looked away for she felt that Alice wouldn't care about what she all had to tell. If she travelled a lot she probably wouldn't feel that way, "It was just the first time, and it was harder than I expected. Though I did learn a lot, expanded my knowledge of my own Fire Starter magic." She said as she looked up to see what Alice was doing before quickly turning away again.

As Alice dropped one book after the other because she had to only pick one, she finally stopped at Anna Karenina, she definitely needed a thicker book that would keep her distracted from time to time. It wouldn't be that difficult with a book like this she thought. So she put the rest back on the shelves and took it with her to the spot that she sat with, with Phoebe. She would pay after the tea. "I am used to travelling with my partner. It's a luxury I might not be able to afford anymore since our jobs both get too serious, I'm a Knight." she had at first decided not to tell but why not, Phoebe was this honest with her too. "But there is nothing to be ashamed of, of wanting to go home to your family." it was a luxury many didn't have or could get and she didn't want to complain because she didn't have a family to return to, because she could understand even though she hated her own. She would always wanted to return to Konstantin at the moment.

For crying out loud here was a fire mage that they could have used on their anklebiters journey. She wrapped her hand around the puncture wound that still wasn't gone for a hundred percent but it was alread far ahead in healing thanks to the medicine that the anklebiters themselves had given her. "So how was Hargeon? I have never been there, I heard quite some good about it." Maybe she should go there next, away from Konstantin? Or should she ask him if he would come along.

Phoebe had looked away from Alice after telling about her homesickness and stared now at the red haired girl as she admitted it was something of a luxury or so Phoebe thought that she meant. She wasn't sure what she say, she had thought that Alice looked so much more responsible than Phoebe which was explained by the fact that she was a Rune Knight, or well that's what Phoebe thought that she meant with a knight and she gaped at Alice, wow. Maybe Phoebe should go too, to whatever town she wanted and she thought about that and looked up when Alice broke the silence, "Oh Hargeon was beautiful. The beach.." the boy, "It seemed like a lovely town. I haven't been there long but it was definitely a place I want to return but I also want to see other things. Do you, have any cities you like?" She asked with interest, seeing the half cat, half human girl into another perspective. She had never seen a half cat before but it fitted Alice perfectly if she would say so herself.

She finished her tea and walked to the cash register to put the book on, so Alice could pay and go if she wanted. Phoebe liked talking to her, it would be a small example of what she could be. She should definitely work harder and maybe, she would leave again for a while soon.

Alice heard Phoebe about that it seemed like a lovely town. She hadn't been there long but through her words Alice caught the idea that Phoebe wouldn't mind to return. Maybe, maybe they would meet each other there. She wasn't entirely sure if it was smart to go to a city with a beach as a cat but it was perhaps a place no one would go looking for her. The idea already gave her the shivers but she needed to plung herself into a job again and do something, but it was cruel, she had promised Judina to work together and yet they had not seen each other since she had arrived her as she had immediately gone to find Konstantin, whom had find her in the end.

"Hmm I liked Era but you have been there already." she thought for a second about a city that Phoebe had not mentioned. Alice wasn't a fan of Crocus, so that fell away, but there was one, "My hometown Magnolia, it is quite a busy city, lots of people, lots of Fairy Tail members of course but it is a nice and busy town. Everyone is very friendly." unless you ask for Lacie. But she let that pass by as she didn't want to discuss her sister with a person who seemed to love her sister much. "I would think you would like that city as well." she said with a warm smile and she stood up to pay for the book as she also finished her tea and noticed Phoebe going to the cash register.

As Phoebe had stood up to walk to the cash register, she quickly checked the kitchen but no one was back yet and she didn't doubt that Mary would parade through the shop because her date must has gone spectacular on those shoes. She nodded when Alice mentioned that Era was a nice town and she hadn't been there long either if you compared it to a live long here but it was more than three weeks before she went to Marigold, which had been four days, Hargeon two, you could see that it started to kick in. She should go and visit another city, make some friends and travel together like Alice did with her partner.

She looked at Alice as she talked about her hometown. So Alice came from Magnolia, it was good she told her that she was a knight otherwise Phoebe would have thought she might be a Fairy Tail member. Her bright hair would fit that picture. "Maybe I should go there next." she said with an enthusiastic tone in her voice as she grabbed the book from Alice and rang it for the cash register so Alice could pay, "Would you like another tea?" she asked because this conversation was really nice and Phoebe could learn so much.

Phoebe planned to have Alice pay, which was considered a smart move according to the neko. She would not forget to suddenly walk off with the book. It wasn't her style, or well not anymore but she wondered for a second if she would return if she had figured it out or if she would be too embarrassed. She talked about Magnolia and liked Phoebe her enthusiasm about it which made her smile. She should go to Hargeon if Phoebe was that happy about Magnolia.

She shook herself out of thoughts when Phoebe asked her about another tea, "Oh I would love to. It is very nice here, thank you." she said as she put the paid book in her blue backpack and headed back to her seat. She didn't stay that much longer, just one cup of tea was enough for them to talk about a lot of things, sisters came up in the end before Alice would tell Phoebe that she would take her Hargeon suggestion into consideration and she would take her leave to do some jobs that she needed to do. It would be nice to stay a little longer but she might not have an official job to take care off but she sure had a lot of work left to do.


#17Phoebe Rainsworth

Phoebe Rainsworth
As she rang the book, the conversation felt a bit quiet. But Phoebe was overthinking Magnolia and the clothing she would have to take, the pretty people she might meet and so on. On the other hand she might go back to Hargeon, it would be nice to discover something new and not to run for a boy because that would be stupid. She would go to Magnolia and she would go in a few days. She would ask Alice for another tea and she accepted, so Phoebe headed into the kitchen to fix another cup of tea for the both of them.

Had she thought that Alice was more mature, she had learned in that short meeting a lot about her and her sister and the consequences that came with that. She thought she hated Mary from time to time but this was even more ridiculous and she was blessed with a shoe stealing sister instead of something worse.
Alice didn't leave much later after that and Phoebe would head back behind the register to wait for another customer, but she doubt today would give her more things to think about instead of only going to Magnolia and find a new adventure that she would have to roll into.
