Tara had actually had to go out and run some errends, as they were a little low on food where she was staying at the moment and she had volunteered to go out and get some more. If worse came to worse, she knew how to defend herself with magic. Offensive magic wasn't her specialty, but, when you were in an apocalypse, you got good with it fast or bad things happened to you.
She felt someone nearby before she actually saw him. It wasn't exactly rare for her to feel someone with strong magical powers around here, but the strength of it washed over her quickly and caused her to stop in her tracks. It didn't feel malicious, though, which made her wonder if there was a new arrival or just someone performing strong magic.
It didn't take her long to find just whom the magical energies were coming from. She didn't usually go out of her way to approach people, but this was a different circumstance, especially when she saw the confusion. "Hi," she managed to peep out when she got close enough. "Are you lost?" Seemed as good of a way as any to start a conversation.
