Who: Ashleigh Donovan & Jack Roman
What: A little visit
Where: Jack's cabin
Telling her family had been one thing, but for some reason, Ashleigh was more nervous to tell Jack about what had happened. They were friends, of course, but she wasn't entirely sure about anything other than that. But considering it had been his place she had been on her way to when her world got tossed on its head, she felt he deserved a visit - in person - to explain things.
Matthew had been left with a friend back in Fabletown, someone who had watched over him time and time again since he was born, because even though she was eager to introduce her little boy to the people that she knew and loved, she was scared to do so as well. Her life had been something else for the three plus years since she had gotten locked out of the hotel, and she wasn't necessarily the same person as before. Tack on the addition of a squirrely little boy with more energy than he knew what to do with, and Ash was walking on pins and needles. She had gotten used to one way of things, and now it had gone back. Where did she fit into this world now?
So the Ashleigh Donovan that approached Jack's cabin was a little older than before, a little more mature. Her hair was loose around her shoulders, her arms bare in the sundress she wore, and just like she had attempted to do so so many years ago, there was a backpack over one shoulder with the fixings for a picnic within. A moment of hesitation and then she knocked, a step taken back to wait.
