Who: Alcuin and Alice
Where: Hale Estate, the gardens
When: Week 13, Friday afternoon
Why: Because the adorable is strong with them.
Warnings: I'm pretty sure not. Unless vast quantities of adorable warrants a warning.
Alice remained, as ever, blissfully unaware of any changes or projects that were underway at the Hale Estate. It was fortunate that she was used to her routine trips to the garden. Even if she forgot her obligation, her feet remembered the daily path, and the girl found herself in the gardens more often then not. She adored the work. There was something soothing about it. She liked the feeling of earth beneath her fingertips, and the result of her labors were worth any work invested in them.
That Friday saw Alice kneeling in the midst of the plants and seeing to the planting of some new bulbs. She rarely dressed appropriately for the occasion, wearing a simple, yellow sundress that would show off the stains the dirt would no doubt leave on it that day. Her blond hair spilled down her back, clipped back only on one side, and she wasn't wearing the sandals that she'd left at the edge of the garden. As was often the case whether she was working or walking the grounds, she sang a tune softly to herself, oblivious to much else save the work at hand.
