Levi like to dress for comfort. She likes wearing things like tank tops, sweats, etc. Though, Levi’s style is fluid between feminine and masculine attire. Levi can look like a girly girl one day and a tomboy the next. What Levi sticks to daily is wearing makeup. When she does her make up though, you never know how bare or not Levi’s face will be. Her favorite accessory is a black choker. Lastly, Levi wears her long hair out when possible.

Q U I R K S ||
-- Not Making Eye Contact: As a
child Levi learned to not look people in the eyes. Recently Levi
has been trying to make eye contact, but the most she can do
is give a quick glance. She tends to freak out if she keeps it for
any longer.
-- Flinching: Every time
someone touches Levi, there is a good chance she will
flinch. It is another habit she has formed as a child.
The flinching is worst if the touch is unexpected.

Image

S T R E N G T H S ||
-- Supportive: Thanks
to Levi's understanding nature, she is the cheerleader
in everyone's corner. She'll provide encouragement
and will be that should to cry on if someone needs it.
-- Claircognizance: Levi
wouldn’t call it claircognizance because she considers it
to be more of a gut feeling. It is a minor gift, but it has
come in handy. Sometimes she just knows when she
shouldn’t trust someone or do a certain thing. She’ll
even get a sudden thought that ends up being helpful later.
-- Medium: Levi can
see and communicate with spirits. She has been
able to since she was a child. When she could,
she would always help them pass on from the
living world.

F E A R S ||
-- Mr. Cherry: This
man is Levi's boogeyman. He was cruel to her mother
and her. She got away from him, but she fears he will
find her one day. She wishes to never see the man again,
as human or ghost.
-- Being Outed: Levi is a
lesbian and is terrified of being out. She hasn’t told anyone,
even if they assumed. Levi feels like her life would change
drastically if others knew. It’s hard for her to convince herself
that her life wouldn’t change much if others knew. She knows
people can be treated differently and or badly when out. Levi
keeps the secret close to her heart.

Image

W E A K N E S S E S ||
-- Obedient: Deep down
Levi a people please. Levi is always willing to fulfill
request made of her. If the request doesn’t go against
what she believes or sees as right, she will do it.
-- Childish: If Levi is
backed into a corner she doesn’t want to be in, she’ll
act like a child. She’ll be silly, sarcastic, and immature.
Other bad qualities may be brought forward as well if
she is uncomfortable enough. Levi will act this way
until she is freed from the said corner.
-- Men: It’s like a switch
is flipped when she needs to deal with men. She turns
quiet and cold. If she needs to speak to one, she’ll just
come off as rude. Levi can even become aggressive and
hit someone if uncomfortable enough.

| Understanding - Secretive - Friendly - Stubborn - Caring - Jumpy|

Levi is very understanding. She would be the last person to cast judgement. Levi is sympathetic towards others. She listens to people and does her best to figure out why they may have done or said something. It always takes Levi a while before she finally has an opinion of someone. Even if she has an opinion of someone, it will change when she gets new information regarding them. Her friendly nature seems to help people believe she won’t judge them. Levi is pleasant and kind to those who interact with her. She is generous to others and considerate of their feelings. If Levi knows you well enough or is comfortable enough, she is affectionate and loving.

She can’t help but be caring. She looks out for others and is concerned if they are unwell or acting odd. This is when she will stick around until the person feels better or she gets a few smiles from them. Even though Levi likes others to be in a good mood when around her, she can’t help being jumpy. Her jumpy nature is easily detected as the physical reactions. If Levi doesn’t tense, she’ll flinch when touched. She even jumps at sudden and loud noises. In the nonphysical aspect, Levi tends to feel anxious and uneasy. She is a Nervous Nellie who worries that things may suddenly go bad. Levi is more on edge when she isn’t at the house. She usually feels uncomfortable when out and about in town. She would rather stay in the house all day.

Despite Levi’s good nature, she is secretive. She isn’t one to give out information about herself, especially about her past. Levi will avoid the subject, beat around the bush, and or tell a lie. When she does talk about herself, it is in vague terms. Levi doesn’t want anyone to know too much about her. They could use the information against her one day. Levi is even secretive about how she feels sometimes. She wants others to believe she is okay and happy all the time. The woman can be very tight-lipped with even the simplest of things. It may be so easy for Levi to be secretive as she is stubborn. It can be difficult to change her attitude or position on something once she has made it. Levi avoids and dislikes change. Change scares her as things could end up worse than they were. Change can be positive, but why take the risk?

Drama occurred in Levi’s life before she was even born. She was conceived in the Town of Ashwood. Her mother, Vivian Black was a telepath who lived in The Delancey House for Gifted Women. Vivian left the house when she found out she was with child. She left to move down south with her lover Perry Moon. Before Levi was born, Vivian left Perry for Logan Cherry. She had fallen in love with him. Perry was furious and disappeared. He couldn’t believe Vivian left him for his third cousin. Since Logan was around when Levi was born, he signed her birth certificate. It is how Levi ended up with the last name Cherry.

Levi grew up believing Logan was her biological father. She remembers having happy memories with Papa and Mama on their small farm. According to Mama, Levi had seen ghosts since she was a baby. Levi’s life went downhill when she saw the first ghost she could remember. The ghost’s name was Alice. She couldn’t remember the first conversation she had with Alice, but she mentioned her at dinner that night. Papa freaked out. He started yelling at Levi, calling her an unholy abomination. This caused the first serious fight between Mama and Papa.

After that incident, Papa told her he wasn’t her Papa. He told her to call him Mr. Cherry, not Papa. Levi remembers crying for days. Though, her Mama got her through the shock and told her to ignore Alice and any other ghost. Levi listened and ignored Alice, for a while anyways. Her happy home wasn’t happy anymore though. The environment was tense. Levi couldn’t help but be terrified of Mr. Cherry. He said cruel things to her, threw things in her direction, and sometimes held her a bit too tightly. Mama was able to prevent most of those unpleasant moments, but she wasn’t always around. Levi quickly learned the moments would happen less if she just listened.

She was about sixteen, she stopped ignoring Alice. She couldn’t sleep one night and the two just talked the night away. Levi found out a lot about Alice, she had been a slave on the plantation their farm had been built on. Levi soon found out Alice wanted a golden pocket watch returned to her family. The watch had been passed down to her but taken away by her master. It was a year later when Levi built the courage to help Alice. It wasn’t hard to find the watch as Mr. Cherry wore it often. If he wasn’t wearing it, it was in a glass frame hanging above the fireplace. Levi was given the opportunity to get the pocket watch when the adults went away on a second honeymoon. Levi was left at home as she had school, and they believed she was old enough and responsible enough. Levi spent the beginning of that week with Alice, not wanting her to pass on. She had fallen in love. By midweek, she did return the watch to Alice’s family. She spent the rest of the week sad, but happy that Alice passed on.

When Mr. Cherry and Mama returned, things were normal for a few days. Levi was mucking out the horses’ stalls when Mr. Cherry came storming in. He threw a fit. This was the first time he harmed her. He took the pitch fork she had in her hands and struck her across the stomach with it. The next few moments were a blur. Mama came out of nowhere and attacked him, but he threw her off and she bumped her head. Levi ran off and called the police. In the end, her mother and herself were taken to the hospital. Mr. Cherry was left to talk to the police. Mama ended up in a coma, brain dead. Before Levi could tell her side of the story to the police, Mr. Cherry threatened to take her mother off life support. Levi told the police his version and went back to live with him. She had nowhere else to go. It was two years later when her Mama passed away. Though, her Mama returned to Levi as a spirit. Her Mama convinced her to run off to The Delancey House for Gifted Women. Levi went as she knew it’d allow her Mama to pass on. She has been at the house for about three years now.

So begins...

XXXIf one knew Stella at all, they would not be surprised to find her to be a morning person. As the sun peeked its rays over the horizon, Stella was up and throwing open her curtains. Golden light filled the room and made the orange walls glow with gold. "It's Tricentennial Day." She said to herself with a grin as she gazed out at the town. Then, she grabbed her yoga mat and changed into her workout gear before planting herself on the second-floor balcony for her salutations to the sun.

Once she was finished, she ventured back inside for a quick shower before donning the dress she chose for the day. With her silver hair wrapped up in a towel and the skirt of her dress swishing as she walked, she made her way down the stairs and into the kitchen to prepare herself some Tea. As she made her descent, she was greeted by the sounds of cooking as Eva was preparing the house breakfast. "Good Morning, Eva!" Stella said brightly. "Happy Tricentennial Day." She filled the kettle with water, placed it on the stove, and set it to high. While she waited, she watched Eva cook. "What's for breakfast? I bet whatever it is will be delicious! Your food is always the best." She planted a soft kiss on her friend's cheek just as the kettle started its screaming. She grabbed a mug and a teacup and placed them on an antique silver tray. She slienced the kettle and poured water into each before adding the tea and sugar.

"Let me know when it's breakfast time!" she said as she exited the kitchen. "I'll wake everyone up." This wasn't a typical morning for the girls of the Delancey House. It was Ashwood's 300th birthday today. The Tricentennial. It always amazed Stella that her town was older than most towns in America. There were a few important exceptions but those places were markers of history. Her small town was unknown to most people. When she had first come across this town with her mother those years ago, she felt drawn to it. Like she had finally found a home. After they left, this places was a welcome haunt in her life. When her mother decided if was time for Stella to find her own way, she immediately came here. And here in Ashwood she stayed. Everyone knew her here. She was greeted with smiles and welcoming hugs. It sucked her in the way Stars Hollow did for Loralai Gilmore. Only if she was anyone from Gilmore Girls it would have to be Sookie. Only Stella didn't cook much. She did enjoy baking from time to time.

Anyway, this was not the typical day in the Delancey House. Usually everyone did their own thing. Not today. Today they were a family. Everyone in this town was to be a family. And that meant waking up and eating breakfast for everyone. And speaking of waking up her housemates... She raised her hand to knock on Kali's door and realized she forgot her gloves. She placed the tray on a nearby table and pulled her gloves from her dress's pockets. Yes her dress had pockets. She's quite proud. She picked up the tray once more and brought her knuckles down against the wood of Kali's door. She waited a moment before opening it, tray in hand, and entered. "Good morning, Kali!" She greeted. "Happy Tricentennial! I have a surprise for you later but for now I have some tea. Just the way you like it. I thought maybe today we could have tea on the balcony if you're up for it. They say that fresh air does the body good."

XXXStella grinned broadly as her friend agreed with her idea to have tea out on the balcony. After all, it was a nice summer day. It was bound to warm up as the sun rose, but for now, it was cool and breezy. Just the way Stella liked it. "Of course. See you in a bit, Kali." She turned and made her way out onto the balcony. Just inside the doors leading to the balcony was a small foldable table Stella was able to grab it and open it with one hand and one quick movement. With her other hand, she placed the tray on top. She stared at it a moment and wondered if they should grab chairs but ultimately decided against it. Eva would have breakfast ready soon and the less Stella had to clean up, the sooner she could get everyone to the table.

Stella had just turned to retrieve her friend when she saw her dark head stumbling around in the dark. Well, the house was full of sunshine, but everything was dark to Kali. Stella raced forward to take her hand and lead her away. Someone had shifted the coffee table in the upstairs sitting room too far forward and she was about to bang her shin on it. "Look out!" She maneuvered her around it and once Kali was safely on the balcony, she returned to right it. Kali allowed Stella to help, but she knew that she wouldn't be happy if Stella was constantly doing everything for her. Kali was her own person after all. All Stella really needed to do was just be supportive.

She handed Kali the teacup and picked up her own mug of tea. It was sweet just the way she liked it. And it had cooled from scalding hot from the kettle to nice and warm. A part of her wished it was winder and she was wrapped in layers and drinking hot chocolate. That's what the warmth from the tea always reminded her of. That and her mother's car heater never worked in the winter time so that was the only way they could keep warm on cold days. She sipped at her tea and sighed contentedly. "This tea is delicious. I'm so glad I bought it." She turned to her friend. "What do you think?" She listened to her friend's response before turning her attention back out to the town below. It was getting later now and the shopkeepers were opening up and putting out decorations and signs for special sales. They would be open until 5:00 p.m. today and then the real festivities began.

"Mr. Jameson's putting up patriotic decorations." She said, talking about the owner of their town's general store. These days, he had bought an entire storefront to make it his own. There were so many things the town needed as a "general goods" nowadays. It was the only way he could keep up. "Oh and there's Charlie bringing the newspapers." She waved to the little boy as he tossed the paper up by their door. He was an excellent shot. He never threw so softly it landed at the bottom of the steps, but he also never threw so hard it slammed into their doors. "Oh and Miss Jenny at the parlor is giving a discount for Tricentennial makeovers. Hair, face, and nails for a discounted price." Stella sighed dreamily. "I wonder if we'd be able to do it." She knew she probably sounded like a school girl, but this was her first (and only) Tricentennial and she was just so excited. Granted the town did something similar for the fourth of July and the town's normal birthdays, but there was just something about today that made everything feel more special. "Getting pampered might be nice for once."

Movement nearby caught her eye and she turned her head and gasped audibly. "Oh my gosh its Mrs. Norris. You know? The pregnant woman. Well I mean the pregnant woman with rumors. I heard in town the other day that the baby doesn't belong to Mr. Norris but Chip the guy from the auto shop." She laughed. "I don't think its true of course. Those two are crazy for each other. This town just likes a good story."

Stella heard Eva calling her from downstairs. She must have finished breakfast by now. "Breakfast is ready! Just wait til you smell it, Kali. She cooked us a real feast down there." She took her friend's hand after placing the teacup on the silver tray and lead her to the stairs. Kali was nearly an expert on those stairs, but Stella still liked to keep watch to make sure she didn't trip or slip. Hell, Stella can see and she still trips from time to time. The only difference is, Stella knows where to grab on to catch herself. Kali doesn't. When Kali made it to the bottom, she went back for the rest of their tea, determined to finish it with breakfast, and brought down the tray. When Stella saw the food, she nearly dropped the tray! It was a whole buffet! "Holy cheese-puffs, Eva! You made us a feast fit for kings today!" She set down the teacup and pulled out a chair for Kali to sit down on and enjoy her tea. "A chair for the beautiful lady," she said brightly, followed by, "I'll go wake the others." She gave Eva a thank you peck on the cheek before going room to room to wake everyone.

She knocked on Eva and Ravana's door, but there was no answer. Stella frowned, wondering if Ravana would still be off on... well on whatever she does all night. (She's sure she's heard one of the girls call it "Ravana's Sexcapades" but Stella likes to give her the benefit of the doubt.) With a shrug, she went out the side door to knock on the garage-turned-bedroom's two doors. There was one on each side of each room. The first belonged to Gerry and Able. "Good Morning and happy Tricentennial you two!" She called out. "Eva's made us a feast fit for Kings so if you want any, you'd better get up!" She moved to the door that leads to Acadia and Krista's room and repeated herself. This time, however, her words were met but quiet noises. Stella figured it was probably Acadia practicing her craft. (Stella's way of saying her Voodoo.)

Then she returned to the house to wake Levi and Lina--the only two girls left--before making her way back down the stairs. She was just about to make her way to the table when she heard a sound in the other room. Confused, she made her way into the living room where she found Ravana sprawled out on the cushions looking exhausted and... wearing the same thing she was wearing yesterday. Stella cleared her throat, her cheeks red with the implications of her outfit and said, "I'm sure you've heard, but Eva's got breakfast on the table." She turned to leave but turned back and said, "I'm glad you made it home safe."

She made her way back to the table and sat beside Kali. "Okay I'm back what did I miss?" She wasn't going to touch the food until the others had joined them. Or at the very least, they were more than five minutes late because she wasn't waiting any longer than that.

Levi had woken up an hour before sunrise. She always awoke an hour before sunrise since she was assigned chores at Mr. Cherry’s farm. She hadn’t been on that farm in a while, but she couldn’t bring herself to change her sleeping schedule. As soon as she woke up, she made a quick breakfast and cleaned up. Levi knew it was Tricentennial Day today and was not happy about it. Her plan was to avoid everyone and stay home. She doubted that would happen. Levi had come to the town at night three years ago. The town had been celebrating Ashwood’s birthday. There were so many people and she didn’t get back on the bus only because of her mother. A sad smile graced her lips as she thought of her mother. She knew she was now in a better place, but she still missed her.

She had been able to avoid the others so far. It was likely because it was so early. She made sure to be as quiet as a mouse. After she had eaten breakfast and cleaned up, she went for her morning walk. It was more of a speed walk. Although recently, she had worked up to jogging. Levi did four miles in total to and from the house. When she made it back, she was glad no one was out and about. Levi did glance at the time and knew Eva would be up soon. Levi showered, shaved, and washed her hair. She did it as quickly as possible before sneaking off to her bedroom. Out of habit, Levi locked her bedroom door. She moved about to pick out her clothing and do her hair. Levi picked out a rather feminine outfit today. Once she dried her hair with some help from a towel, she brushed it out.

When Stella had knocked on the door to wake her, she had just finished painting the pinky of her left foot. “I'll be down soon Stella,” she called out. Levi was only going to head downstairs because Stella mentioned Eva made breakfast. She didn’t want to be rude and not go. Her fingernails were dry, so luckily, she could do her makeup and head down. She painted her toenails with her footwear on, so she would be down soon. Carefully, she stood and walked over to the small vanity in the corner of her room. Levi kept her makeup simple for right now. She simply did black cat eyes with eyeliner and put on black mascara. Levi wanted to put lipstick on, but she settled for honey lip balm. The last thing she needed was to mess up her lipstick while at breakfast.

Her plan was to have a cup of coffee and some yummy food. She was still satisfied from the meal she had in the morning, but she would eat something. She did appreciation that Eva cooked. Levi left her pink purse on her bed before she headed downstairs. Levi walked into the kitchen to get a cup of coffee, well more like a cup of cream. Her “cup of coffee” consisted of about 75% cream, 24.5% coffee, 0.5% of sugar. She entered the dining room just as Eva had asked her question about Tricentennial Day. Levi had no answer, so she stayed quiet. Levi placed her cup near a place at the table. Levi made sure the seat was as far from Gerry as possible. The woman always made her feel a bit fearful. She pushed the reason of why away and grabbed a small portion of hash browns. Levi slid into her seat and ate.

PEMBERTON
ImageAs Gerry place her empty coffee cup back on the table she felt a sharp stabbing in the back of her head. She couldn’t exactly place the feeling, like most feelings that crossed into her mind from a distance, it was blurry and vague. It wasn’t particularly spiteful. Definitely resembling irritation. And perhaps a bit of pain laced in. Then the feeling vanished and the pressure in Gerry’s skull lessened.

The feeling had been stuffed down. Hidden from Gerry’s empathy, though a simple touch would bring it careening back.

She scanned the faces around the table. Stella and Kali were smiling at each other, and their joy seemed genuine. Gerry could feel the peace and happiness radiating off them. It was more sickeningly sweet than Eva’s French toast, so, not them. Then Gerry heard footstep and looked up to see Ravana tossing her a small wave.

Gerry raised an eyebrow deciding that the unpleasant feeling had definitely radiated from the brunette. She waved back all the same. "So what is today's big thing. I can't keep up with all the different nonsense events we plan."

Gerry snorted at Ravana’s comment, before returning it with a smirk. “That’s small town living for ya chicky. Tricentennial day.” The whole town had a real bee in its bonnet about celebrating every little thing. Just going to get the paper this morning Gerry had been assaulted by decorations and the beginnings of festivities. Gerry leaned back and examined Ravana, the negative feelings were non-existent, or at least well covered up. “Now, girly, do you care to share what’s bothering you this cheerful morning?”

Gerry didn’t get any more questioning in as the table begun filling up rapidly. Not that Gerry cared about divulging people’s emotions in front of a crowd. But rather a new, fresh wave of emotions distracted her.

Placing the emotions was like playing a guessing game. The feeling of peace seemed to waft in with Lina, or perhaps Krista. The wariness, bordering on repulsion, as usual belonged to, Acadia, she seemed to always bring with her. Gerry smirked, and had to appreciate that at least she was honest and didn’t hide it. Acadia called a spade a spade, and a demon a demon.

Next was Eva’s distinctive warmth, as she settled next to Acadia. “Yes, do be a dear today of all days.” The addition to Eva’s words, completely unnecessary, but said anyway.

Then the most interesting emotion of all appeared. Small and weak, but definitely present below all the others emotions that clogged the room, was an emotion almost akin to fear. It was like a nervousness that wavered on the border of fear. Gerry narrowed her eyes at Levi, who sat with a small posture down the other end of the table. Due to their years spent together at the house, Gerry knew this wasn’t a coincidence, the girl had things she didn’t want Gerry to know. Which only peaked Gerry’s interest, so she leaned forward to call down the table. “Morning Levi.” Another unnecessary comment, but then again, most everything Gerry says is unnecessary.

Then Gerry turned back to Eva. “Good question. Pray tell, what joys are in store for us today?” She asked the table.

This was awful. There was becoming a lot more people here then she anticipated. She enjoyed the house, food to eat, people to see, a wonderful town full of people. But man-oh-man. The people, yes they were okay but she got quickly annoyed with too many people. She didn't know how long she would be here before she checked out of even the conversation.

Watching as one woman after another came she looked around. She was on okay standings with most of them. Well, she hoped at least. There was Stella she was... interesting. There was something sometimes she wondered what it was all about. Lina was in a cheerful mood in seemed and it being this early and not really in the mood with all these people, her cheerful mood was annoying.

Krista, she didn't know much about but hey she wasn't being bothered so she was cool. As she continued to look around she noticed Kalido poor thing was blind. She had nothing wrong with her even though her relationship with Stella was strange. Technically if no one else was around she could stick her tongue out at her and she wouldn't even realize. Which would be a shame everyone should know when a tongue is being stuck out at them.

When Acadia made her wonderful present she didn't even try to lift a smile to her face. When she spoke about a devil she wondered if it was directed at her. She hoped not because this was going to become nasty. But she decided that she was not going to bother. Even though she should mention it.

Turning her attention to Eva she watched as she worked silly. It was strange how they were all just random people living together. Yet she put so much work into helping everyone. If everyone was normal they would make their own breakfast instead of using her as a slave. She was grateful for her thoughts. A place where instead of saying it she could just think it pretending she was saying things allowed. It was a place of solitude where she could be left alone to think about her accumulating feelings.

As Levi came in next she found it hard to believe. That girl seemed quiet and kept to herself which was always interesting. This place was sure to be filled with big drama some day and she wondered when that would be the nicest thing.

As she looked at Gerry who spoke about her comment a tad earlier she looked blank at her. "Nothing is wrong Gerry. I am fine, you're fine, well all live a fine life." She said daring not to say another word.

"What about you all, what do you think of this day? What for wonderful things will we do? Crafts? Some magical festival, I am ready for all the schedule.

XXXStella took bites of the different dishes Eva had prepared for them all throughout breakfast. Her favorite was definitely the french toast, but honestly, she was a sucker for bacon. She nibbled at another piece, listening to Gerry read from the paper. She was discussing the rumor about poor Mrs. Norris. According to the paper, it was a fact, but Stella still had her doubts. She tried not to let the story dim her mood too much.

Then Lina strode in carrying a beautiful bouquet of flowers she had pulled from the garden. Stell beamed. "Those flowers are gorgeous, Lina! They really brighten up the room, but not as much as your smiling face!" She said cheerily. Stella reached out to gently caress a petal. "The roses look lovely." Her face softened as she stared at the hydrangeas. They were her mother's favorite flower and to this day, the image made her miss her terribly. She'd have to remember to write another letter soon.

Next came Krista and Acadia and finally Levi. They were still missing once, but Stella was sure she'd be around shortly.

When Eva had questioned the festivities for the day and Stella placed a finger to her cheek and thought. She talked to pretty much everyone in town at some point in time about the festival. Based on what she understood..."I think there's supposed to be a parade through town center. There are discounts all over town if anyone wants to do some shopping. I think there's also going to be a pageant later in the afternoon for Mr. and Mrs. Ashwood. I think there's a couple food eating contests. The grade school kids will put on a play later about the founding day. There are carnival ride by the lakeside. And tonight there's a potluck for everyone in town with music, dancing, and fireworks at the very end!" She shrugged. "That's what I heard."

She reached out for another strip of bacon and nibbled on it. "I was thinking of running for Mrs. Ashwood. I haven't been here that long, but I thought it would be fun to participate." Then she remembered something. "Oh! Kali! They're doing an 'Open Mic' hour before the pot luck. Maybe you could play piano for everyone! I could sing with you if you're nervous." They had a mean Take Me Home Country Road duet. Then she had an idea. "What if we did a booth? We could use our talents to answer questions for the townspeople." Not that Stella would be too much help there. She can only see things based on objects. Typically people didn't bring objects with them when they wanted their future told. "Lina could make flower crowns for everyone!" The wheels in her head were turning now, desparate to have everyone enjoy the day.

Stella was probably just a little over excited, but she had always loved this town and wanted to be a part of it as much as possible.

Lina was in a mood unlike one she had ever had before. There was a general anticipation in the air, good from most people now seated around the table, though some seemed less than enthused to be up and among their housemates. She blushed at the compliments given to her and the flowers and mumbled her thanks, listening to the little conversations happening around her, and avoiding the gaze of anyone who thought her evil. It was a casual breakfast, but felt more formal because it wasn’t often they all sat together on a day of celebration.

"Thank you Krista, what is your plan for the day?" She turned to see Acadia eyeing her blue eye, and turned her gaze towards her hands again, knowing how the woman felt about her eye color.

She picked at her delicious breakfast, and Levi and Ravana entered the room to join in what Lina felt was warmth and light. She could tell that each person had some thought they were dealing with on this day of celebration. Judgement and wishes swirled around in her mind, and she shook her head for a moment, not wanting to intrude on the truth and feelings of each individual.

Stella began another cheery proclamation, and Lina gave a small smile at her enthusiasm. Her eyes widened at the other woman’s suggestions.

“You mean the people would not be afraid of us if we showed our talents?” She questions, looking around at the other women at the table. She had not had good experiences with people who knew of her abilities in the past. There wasn't much of a chance for her to ever use her abilities for people who willingly wanted to be read, because she often found herself perceiving truths secretly, and was the bearer of secrets that she sometimes wished she had never looked into. "I would be... willing to try this, it is such a beautiful day."

She turned her head and gazed out the window for a moment, immediately wanting to spend the day outside in the sun. If Kali played and Stella sang, though she couldn't hear them that well, they always got a look of such joy on their faces at the sound of music, so she would enjoy seeing that too. She began tapping her fingers on her arms in anticipation. I she could sell or give away flower crowns, that could generate news about the flower business she'd been wanting to start in this town for some time, another thing to keep her busy and avoid stillness.

She heard Ravana's rather sarcastic tone in the background and looked up at the woman. despite her outer attitude, Lina could sense some effort to be liked in the woman's demeanor. She understood how odd a feeling that was. She looked over at Levi too, who was eating quietly at the edge of the table. There was an especially closed-off feeling around her today, and Lina thought perhaps she could use Lina's Tiger's Eye earrings to keep her in positive balance. Perhaps she could bring them down when she was finished with breakfast.

Yes, she decided that despite the mixed feelings within the room, this would be a good, and at least interesting day. It wasn't everyday that a festival was celebrated in this little town, especially in a town with quite a few talented women to make things that much more intriguing.

Levi smiled as she ate the hash browns. They tasted delicious. Her smile grew as she looked over in Eva’s general direction. The young woman could make the most delicious food. The smile faded when Levi jumped in her seat because of Gerry’s voice. She was thankful she didn’t choke on her food, but her fingers gripped her fork tightly. She ignored how gooseflesh appeared all over her visible skin. Levi kept her gaze on her plate and quickly nodded in response to Gerry. It took her a second before she chewed the rest of her food and swallowed. Slowly she shifted herself, so her body faced away from Gerry slightly. She listened as Gerry and Ravana asked questions.

It seemed as if Tricentennial Day was going to be the subject of the day. Levi kept a smile on her face as she thought of ways she could stay in the house. The house had become her sanctuary. No men lived in the house and everyone in the house had special skills. She grabbed her cup of coffee and took a sip. She wouldn’t dare take more than a sip in case of any surprises. Her eyes focused on the flowers at the center of the table. They were beautiful. Levi could spend all day in a garden, surrounded by plants. Her mind wandered to all the different types of plants she had around her room. She thought of the window boxes she had hang out of each window in her room. They both held bright red flowers.

Just as she thought about needing to water her plants, Stella began to speak. Levi listened, but kept her eyes on the flowers. She was notorious for not making eye contact with anyone. Some were even surprised if she even made eye contact for a second. If she wasn’t looking at some object, she’d looked at a harmless body part on whoever spoke. Her smile faded a bit as she thought of the Fourth Of July carnival Mr. Cherry would always take her and her mother to. It was one day out of the year where he was more decent. Levi always enjoyed the rides and fireworks at the end. She pulled herself out of the bittersweet memories as Stella continued to speak. Levi parted her lips to encourage Stella to participate in the pageant and do the ‘Open Mic’, but then she mentioned the group doing a booth.

She couldn’t help it when her smile left her lips. Levi’s expression was now blank, a bit somber. Levi didn’t want to be trapped at a booth. Townspeople would stop by. She knew that meant men would appear at the booth. She tensed at the thought. Levi knew she wouldn’t be much help at the booth. She could help set up, but her special skill did require spirits. Levi took to holding her mug in front of her lips to hide her frown. Levi made sure to keep her elbows off the table and tucked against her body. She took a long sip of warm coffee. Her eyes wandered over to Lina’s chin as she spoke. She could sympathize as to why Lina asked her question. Levi was able to bring a small smile to her lips as she placed her cup down. She placed her hands in her lap, lacing her fingers together.

“I don’t think they’ll be afraid. This house has been in this town for ages. I think most will be curious,” she paused as she thought of how her mother lived here before she was born, “If you’d like to make some flower crowns, I can help you collect flowers Lina.” She looked at the flower arrangement at the center of the table again. “I can run to the grocery store as well if anyone plans on participating in the potluck and needs ingredients,” she added. She picked up her cup again to finish off her coffee. Levi would get more in a few minutes. She’d likely go water her plants once she left the dining room too. Levi didn’t want to get wrapped up in helping with the booth. Levi became distracted by thoughts as she wondered how she could get out of joining the festivities. She had these thought every year and always got caught up in participating.
