"I could be down for that. Though it sounds like something that takes more than ten or twenty minutes. I'll ask Mr Upton if I can have tomorrow off. Or if I get time off. Not entirely sure how that works here."

"I think non-magical folks celebrate the end of weeks by taking a couple of days off?" She shrugs. "I can wait."

Permalink

"That makes sense. We call those weekends where I'm from. Do you happen to know when that is? I've never been very good at keeping track of days or the time in general."

Permalink

"I think in a day or two? I am not sure. And they call weekends too. Do you mind coming to my tower or me visiting you when you have the free time?"

Permalink

"Hmm, well weing to a tower sounds awesome. How about I talk to Mr Upton, find out when I'm free and... Is there a way I can leave a note for you, or leave you a message of some kind?"

Permalink

"Oh, right." She starts looking around her purse and retrieves... what might be a tiny bell and a wooden stick. "Ring this three times using the stick and then leave it somewhere in the open. Someone will pick them up in a short while and ask about your message."

Permalink

"That is... so awesome. Well... Talk to you later I guess?"

Permalink

"Sure!" And she walks in the other direction.

Mr. Upton asks if Skye has any preference regarding her day off. He low-key thinks that she should meet the witch as soon as possible. This one is rather friendly, but you know how witches can get. (His niece reacts to this with a roll of her eyes).

"Hmm, well, I like Saturdays better than Sundays, they have better energy, if that's okay?"

Permalink

"Yeah, that works. Did you eat today?"

Permalink

"Oh! I guess I forgot!"

She genuinely did, she's not just saying that, but she also probably would just have said that if he asked and it weren't true.

Permalink

"Go snack on something before work then."

Permalink

If there is something toast like, she grabs that, trying hard not to rush and give herself the hiccups, warming up her legs and feet for a fulls days work.

Permalink

They have toasts! With butter and jam even. If she doesn't butter or jam the toasts herself, Mr. Upton might swing by and do it for her.

Permalink

She butters it, but that's about all, and very sparingly at that. She then tries to warm up the rest of her, last night was even colder than the rest and a van isn't exactly the warmest sleeping place. Though compared to not the van, it's not that bad, but she was certainly cold enough to struggle to fall asleep.

At least she is working on a place that has very reason to be cozy and warm.

Permalink

That does help to warm her up quite quickly, and once she's eaten and stretched for work, she sets about serving the people that come in.
