Who: Datura & Open
What: Taking advantage of the nice weather
When: Sunday afternoon
Where: Open-air market
When spring had started to give way to summer, Datura had fancied she could actually feel the change. She couldn't, of course, not in a physical sense. But the heat, the sunshine, the cloudless skies, they all combined to make her feel more like her self than she ever did in winter. Living in the house with Victor and Diana helped as well, it was easier to feel grounded when she was closer to her family.
But today was simply too beautiful to spend inside, and some poking around on the internet had given her the location of an open-air market, not too far from the house. So she'd gathered up her purse, phone, and sunglasses, left a note on the chalkboard in the kitchen, and headed out.
The crush of people that greeted her when she arrived likely would have driven her back, if this had been a year ago. Today, though, she simply straightened her spine, breathed deeply, and started winding her way through the stalls. She could smell meat being roasted, something sweet on the air, like honey, and the fresh scent of the breeze over the top of it all. She was in absolutely no hurry, so she simply took her time, meandering from one stall to another.
