@Anthony <3
Outfit: Link
___


It was funny how she had been in Gaia for a few weeks now, and even through her and Katerina had a room at the castle, she hadn't stepped inside the walls till now. There was memories here and they were hiding in every corner. It was draining, however, she knew what she needed to just feel a little bit better. Most of the staff was off for the day, and looking out the window the crescent moon lighted up the dark night sky. Norella looked at it and a smile blossomed up on her lips, the sky was beautiful. She placed her bag on one of the kitchen table next to the sink. It was quite here, almost peaceful - way to quite if you asked her. Norella placed her hands on the kitchen table and bounced a little on her toes. The kitchen had changed a lot since 1998, even through she knew that Sebastian was a fan of letting things stay the way they were. She moved around almost looking like she was judging it, but all she really wanted to find was the giant freezer. She soon went to realize that maybe, they didn't own one anymore. Most of the family members were vampires, and maybe they got fresh supplies? Collected in her thoughts she barely noticed someone joining her in the kitchen. It wasn't before turned around she gasped by the shook. "Jesus," she blinked a little and frowned. "I.. uhm," she licked her lips shortly before placing her hands on her hips. "Good evening.. I'm just looking for ice cubes." She mentally punched herself for ice cubes being the first thing coming to her mind. However, ice cubes was still cold and better than nothing.

Anthony was up late, but he usually liked going to the kitchen in the late evenings or nights when he had the next day off. He liked tinkering in silence with his cooking, trying to perfect the dishes that were going to be served at the coronation. Things were hectic these days, and cooking was more in the forefront as many guests filled the large castle. Yawning, he stepped in to the kitchen, flipping the switch, only to notice that the light was already on. That was when he heard a gasp, widening his eyes as he saw a beautiful young woman in here as well. Her exclamation made him chuckle a bit, scratching his neck a little nervously. "You can just call me Anthony," he said in an attempt to be funny, but he already knew it had failed. He noticed that she was a bit fidgety, seemingly wanting something. It was almost adorable, how she looked like a child caught in the act of doing something they weren't supposed to.
"Ice cubes?" he repeated, blinking a few times as he was a little surprised. Most people snuck down to the kitchen for a warm glass of milk or even tea, but ice cubes? He chuckled a bit. "Uhm, sure ... Come with me," he said, leading the way down a servant's passage way until they reached a small gathering of dry ingredients, even some hams and salamis hanging from the ceiling. Opening a large door to the freezer he looked at her. "It's kinda cold in here, but come along, I can show you were we store them," he said in a friendly voice, gesturing for her to follow. The freezer was kept neat, and the frozen particles in the air seemed to wake him up more. "They should be .... Ah! There they are!" he said, reaching out to grab a small bag of ice cubes, handing them to her.

She nodded once to confirm that she was looking for ice cubes. Blindly she followed him, and let the hazel colored eyes take in everything she saw on her way. In case she needed to get back to the freezer, which was very likely, she would have to know the way. "Thank you.. for showing me the way," it wasn't something he had to do, but yet he took the time to do it. Even in these late hours. There was a lot of different smells but nothing she didn't mind. They reached the large door to the freezer, and she felt embarrassed for a few seconds that she hadn't been able to find this place herself. He warned her about the cold, which just made her smile. "I don't mind the cold," she replied and entered along with him. The cold caressed the surface of her skin like a warming welcome. She took a look around and a half smile remained on her lips. Her eyes returned back to Anthony, as he said he had found the ice cubes. The little half smirk grew larger to a more warm one. Norella took them and took a slightly deeper breath in of the cold air. "Thank you.. Anthony, you are a lifesaver," she giggled a little, keeping her eyes locked on his. "Do you mind if I ask what you are doing up in the kitchen so late?" She asked as she made her way out of the freezer again, it was more a question for her curiosity. Norella hadn't spoken to many people in this castle for years.

"Lifesaver? Wow, do you think I could add that to my resume?" he chuckled, closing his eyes as he felt stupid. He wasn't some suave guy who had the ladies swooning over him. He was pretty nerdy, at least regarding his hobbies. Stepping out of the freezer he checked to make sure it was securely locked, turning to look at her as she asked why he was down here so late. Chuckling softly, he scratched his arm a little. "The new moon is going to arrive soon, so I know I'll be pretty exhausted for a few days after, so I just want to get my work in and not feel useless," he admitted. Of course he had never been judged for being what he was, but he also knew that werewolves were often looked upon as being rather primitive. "I - uhm - I'm a cook here, I basically make all those fancy dishes not only look good, but taste good as well," he explained, smiling a little to himself. He had always liked cooking, so getting a job here had been a dream come true. Which was also why he worked so hard. He guided them back to the main kitchen, finding his apron as he clearly wanted to do what he had come to do.
Frowning a little he looked at her, studying her features. "You're from Illien, right?" he said. Perhaps it was a long shot, but he felt like he should've known who she was. "The accent - I have family in Illien, so I guess I'm more sensitive to listening out for it," he apologized, finding a cutting board and a small selection of knifes.

"You could always try," a soft laugh left her lips as she breathed out. She tilted her head a little bit to the left, as she listened to his reply to her question. Norella knew some of species was effected by the new moon, werewolves and witches the most. Both weakened by it. "I'm sure it will be fine if you aren't at the top of the game," she confessed with a comforting smile. Norella had never had to work a day in her life, not other than the times where she took off to explore the world a little. That was the thing she liked most about staying in Gaia after so many years, not many people knew who she was. So she was free to just walk around and talk to old friends. Norella never really flashed her titel around. A soft chuckle left her lips when he said he cooked here, "that's impressive. I haven't stayed here myself for long, but my sister does compliment the food a lot," she replied honest. Norella still couldn't get in her head that Alexander was going to be king of Gaia in just a few weeks. "It's a lot of work, not that I have any doubts that it will be incredible. Alex's parties are always spectacular," she chuckled a little by that adding. She knew his daughter Abigal had done a lot of planning for this, mostly because Katerina and Abigal were so close friends.  

His question made her blink for a second, and she frowned for a few seconds. "Busted," she breathed out and leaned against the kitchen table. "You have a good ear," she pointed out as he said it was the accent. Norella found herself standing on the edge of truth and a white lie. On one hand she wanted to just be herself and on the other hand, she liked that she was just herself right now. Not Katerina's younger sister. "What are you gonna make?" She asked and walked over to get a glass. She filled it up with half of the ice cubes and filled it up with water. Norella took a sip and looked at him.

"I guess you're right," he said, shrugging a bit because he didn't believe it himself. He wanted this so badly, he worked hard, and it annoyed him that something as simple as the moon decided wether or not he was able to perform properly. And to him he was just happy that neither the full moon nor the new moon would interfere with the coronation date. As she said that the crown prince's parties were spectacular, he chuckled, nodding. "Were you at his birthday last year? I mostly watched from the side lines as I'm technically not invited to those events," he said. He wasn't embarrassed about his work, and he knew he would never be able to go to a party like that and just let loose, especially when it was his employer's party.

"I just think I feel a little nostalgic hearing the accent," he confessed, looking around the kitchen to grab some spices and ingredients. When she asked what he was making, he smiled, because he thought she would recognize the ingredients. "Stroganina - My cousin is being a little homesick lately, so I wanted to cheer her up with a home dish, besides the fish is served frozen, so she'll have it ready for her lunch tomorrow," he explained. He was a fan of most dishes that originated in the East European countries. "I could easily make some for you too, if you're up for a late night snack," he offered, preparing the onion, slicing it in nice thin slices.

"No. I actually haven't been in Gaia for quite sometime. But he hosted Abigal's birthday in Italy a few years back, and that was pretty good," she pointed out with a smile. Norella wasn't always up for the social events, and preferred smaller more intimate conversations. In a crowd around many people there was always so much noise and things to pay attention towards. Stroganina sat up on the kitchen table and looked at him. It was one of her favorite dishes since she was a kid. "I would actually love that," she confessed with a bit of a shy smile. "If you don't mind," she quickly added with her lips folded. "I'm sure she will be very thankful that you take your time to do this for her," she said looking at him with a soft expression. Norella had a lot of family, many siblings but she had never had any of them cooking for her. She however, knew what I was like to get homesick. After her father passed away many years ago, she ran away, flew away and lived totally isolated from everyone for years. Her hand moved up to the necklace she was wearing that had a ring with a rubin in it. She closed her hand around it for a few seconds, before freeing it to grab around the glass of water. She felt the cold in her palms and looked down at the ice cubes for a while. She used her powers to made the water even colder, right before the point where it would freeze completely into ice. Her eyes moved back to him cooking, she didn't understand why, but there was a comforting feeling in just sitting there and watch him cook. It was a feeling she liked. She could just have walked out of the kitchen and back to her room, but she felt like sitting here right now was the best choice she had made of this night.

Nodding at the mention of the princess' birthday, he smiled a little. He hadn't gone, mostly because he was needed at the castle. Finishing up the onions he placed then aside, moving over o one of the smaller freezers they only kept fish in, taking out one that he knew was well frozen. As she said she would like some, he smiled. "I might not do it justice, just so that you're warned, but it does taste best right after it's made," he said. It wasn't a burden for him to make another dish, mostly because it was such a simple recipe. He started cutting the fish carefully, putting his knife skills to use. What always made him surprised about this dish was how the fish automatically curled up. He noticed her getting silent, but he didn't mind the silence. It was a nice and different pace from what he was used to with the kitchen being full of people.
"You didn't tell me your name," he said, smiling at her before he moved the raw fish to the side, finding a couple of plates to arrange the food on. He made sure to wash his hands first before grabbing one for the stranger and one for his cousin. Going straight in to arranging, he made sure that there was enough onion for each piece of fish, finishing it up with a light sprinkle of pepper and salt. One plate he covered up nicely, placing it in the freezer for his cousin before he found some cutlery for the woman. The second plate he placed in front of her, placing the fork and knife next to her. "Dig in, and please be brutally honest," he said, feeling a little nervous to be judged.

She chuckled a little to herself, when he mentioned that she hadn't said her name yet. Norella knew she couldn't keep it going, he would figure out who she was in the matter of minutes or days anyways. Especially if he saw her with Katerina. She took a sharper breath in as he arranged the dish. Norella gently watched him as he walked to the freezer with one of the plates, before placing the other in front of her. "I'm always brutally honest," she giggled a little before grabbing the fork and the knife. She looked at the dish and took in the way he had arranged it. "It looks very delicious," she admitted before taking the first bite. Like she had imagined it brought her back to good memories and she closed her eyes to enjoy it. She took another bite followed by another. She chewed off and nodded a bit. "I will be honest with you," she started out and pointed at him with her fork. "It's a solid ten out a ten from here." Norella took a few more bites till she had finished the fish. "The name is Norella by the way," she finally spilled her secret and made a little smile. She had no idea if he would connect the dots, but her name wasn't really over used one.  "

Anthony chuckled as she promised to be honest, feeling a bit nervous to hear her verdict. If she was a native woman from Illien, then she would be able to tear him to pieces if anything was wrong. However as she kept eating, he couldn't help but smile, leaning back against the counter, folding his arms in front of his chest. This was why he did what he did; To see that expression on someone just because he could give them a good experience. Her verdict was clear, making him laugh softly, bowing for her and thanking her. "Then I guess I did my job honor," he said, smiling at her. He liked how she seemed to react, how she seemed to listen when he spoke, it was very nice and comfortable. Even with the silence, he had felt awfully calm and relaxed.
When she said her name, he nodded a bit surprised. "So you're named after the princess I'm guessing?" he chuckled, clearly blind to the fact that she could be the princess. Not that she didn't act or look like one, he actually found her very beautiful, but he guessed the name was popular. "It's a very pretty name, much more original than my own," he said, complimenting her name.

She breathed out with a soft chuckle as he thought she was named after, herself, but it meant he didn't connect the dots. It wasn't really often that Norella showed up in media, she liked keeping to herself - not really a trait that was fit for a princess. "Something like that," she replied to his guess and tilted her head a little to the side. "Thanks, it was a name from my mothers side of the family," she told with an almost harmonic voice. Norella breathed the worry away from her shoulders and took a sip of her ice cold water. Norella took it into own hands to pick up a few dirty items so she could help him clean up. "Thank you for the midnight snack, Anthony," she liked saying his name, perhaps it was why she kept saying it. Knowing peoples names was something people often didn't see as something personal, but it was always the first personal thing one gave another. A name kept someone from being strangers. Norella opened the tab to wash a few things and looked over at Anthony shortly. "How long have you been working here?" She then asked, and placed the almost clean object in the dishwasher. Norella noticed she asked him a lot of questions, which was a normality for her - she expected people to tell her off if she asked to much.

He laughed a little at her thanking words, shaking his head a little. Had he been suave, he would've asked if she was a midnight snack for him, but that might've sounded weird. They had just met, but he felt rather comfortable around her already. He wasn't really anxious, he was more afraid of people judging him and them disregarding him for who he was. She moved over, washing off some of the items and he grabbed the knife and cutting board, moving over to stand next to her at the big sink. Her question made him hum a little, thinking it through. "Since ... The Summer of 2016," he said, not really recalling his hiring day vividly, but he could remember the heat outside. "I didn't start out as a high ranking cook, of course, but I've slowly made my way up the chain," he said, smiling because he was rather proud of himself. "It's good and honest work, and I have enough money for an apartment in a decent part of town not that far from here," he explained.
As they finished washing off, Anthony grabbed a small tea towel, drying off his hands before handing it to her. "I notice you've asked me a lot of questions ... I can't believe I actually seem interesting," he chuckled softly, shaking his head a little as he took off his apron, placing it back on it's rack. "Tell me something about you that no one knows," he said, looking in to her eyes with a curiosity in his own.

2016 was still a long time working in a place like this, it gave one time to learn the surroundings and people. Norella chuckled lightly by his expression of working one up the chain, because she found everything like that. Nothing started off as perfection a skill had to be developed with time and hard fork. It sounded nice, having a place away from the royal madness. Sometimes she found it funny how she was in the middle ground of what she preferred, the life she always had or a more simple one. "It does sound nice," she admitted and grabbed the small towel as he threw it to her. A little smirk lifted on her lips, as he noticed her master degree in asking questions. Caine had always told her it was what she did best, asking questions and get people to spill secrets, even without trying. "It's the small things in life that makes people who they are. I like that, sometimes someones favorite scent can tell more, than an hour with them on the phone," she replied and frowned shortly to herself. It was a thing she had, but never expected anyone to understand why she loved her questions and secrets. "That no one knows?" She crossed her arms a little, leaning her hip towards the kitchen table. "The first thing I do when I'm somewhere unfamiliar is to find a safe spot, where I can go to let my thoughts out," she began to tell and ran a hand through her dark brown hair. "I like the mountains, the taller the better. I like it cold, its clears my mind and I don't know. Makes me feel, free I guess," she breathed out and licked her lips keeping her eyes on his. "Somtimes all you just want to is to be left alone," she took a deeper breath in, "I'm selfish in that way, but It's nice being able to just be," she turned her eyes to the window, looking outside in the dark garden. Norella liked isolating herself in the cold once in a while, maybe to remind herself that she was part of the reason her father had died in the war. It was a guilt never washed away. "Anyway, it means I like cold mountains," she joked and shook her head with a small laugh. Everything about talking to him seemed usual, but in the most calm and comfortable way. It was like a part of her had known him forever, which she found odd, but it was nice for a chance.

Listening to her talk about mountains and cold, he could see the spark in her eyes. It was not a lie, that much he could tell. That passion and that true feeling that was behind those things she told him, made him smile. He wasn't even realizing he was staring a bit before he had to look away, but he couldn't take that damn smile off of his face. "Being a werewolf, I don't really get to experience cold the same way others do ... I'm quite warm blooded," he chuckled, looking at her once again, but trying not to stare this time. There was something about her, something that just seemed so familiar, yet so new and exciting.
"So ... If someone were to ask you out, it would be perfect just to hang out in a freezer, or?" he asked, feeling a little goofy. Stupid! He was completely stupid! What was he even on about? He was a cook, and she was probably some noble woman, and that didn't really match up in his mind. Shaking his head, trying to clear his thoughts. "I guess I'm rambling, sorry," he chuckled. It was rather late, but he didn't feel like going to bed yet. He thought about something, a small smile reappearing on his lips as he looked at her. "How about we go for a stroll as the fancy people would put it? I could show you my favorite place here?" he suggested.

She couldn't imagine not feeling cold. When she wasn't cold she felt uncomfortable, it had been worse when she was a child. It had before she truly understood her own abilities. Norella had always been different, a Thunderbird was usually born with golden feathers, hers were blue like the dark ocean. His next comment made her laugh and she nodded a bit, "you got me there," she pointed out in her sweet laughter. The cyrobird tilted her head a little to the side and folded her lips as she kept gazing into his eyes. "No, It's okay. I like a little rambling," she replied with an assuring smile. Norella lifted a brow by his suggestion and crossed her arm quite loose. "Hmm," she tilted her head to the other side, "I think I would enjoy that. Is there any freezers?" she then asked with a brighter smile, clearly the last thing only said to tease. "I'm curious to see what your favorite places are," she confessed and took a few steps closer him, "let's get going." Norella walked over to where she had put her bag and grabbed it. She was always up for a little moonlight adventure, and having a handsome werewolf as company, only made the night better. Norella was lucky that almost everyone was a sleep or at least not in the hallway. She wasn't sure he would see her as he did right now, if he knew the truth. "Lead the way."

Anthony chuckled a bit, but he felt himself taken aback by her melodic laughter. It sounded beautiful, but he couldn't let himself linger on that thought for too long. "No freezers, I'm afraid, but it could be a little chilly," he said, scratching his neck a little as he looked at how she gathered her stuff. Should he offer to take her bag? But before he could really act on any of his thoughts, she stood and was ready to go, making him chuckle a bit before leading the way as she asked for.
Leading her down the hall, he looked around, holding a finger up to his lips to make her know to keep quiet. Grabbing her hand to sneak past a guard that patrolled the hallway. He wasn't really supposed to be in this part of the castle, far from it actually, but he wanted to show her anyways. As the guard was gone, he pulled her with her again, further and further up the stairs of the castle. He wondered if she needed time to breath as they were climbing the stairs quite fast. "Just a little further," he promised, smiling at her before he opened a small door that led in to a tower. Opening it, it was a little dusty. He let go of her hand, sending her a challenging gaze before he walked to the window. "I hope you know how to climb," he said before he crawled out the window and up to the roof. [/color]

It was quite fun. She enjoyed things that gave her chills down her spine of excitement. Norella let him guide her pass the guard, and she tried her best not to laugh at the fun she had. She felt like a kid sneaking around the castle, a feeling she had pushed far back in her mind. As soon as the guard was gone, Anthony pulled her with him again, and she followed blindly. They climbed the castle stairs and she thanked the many years of living near the mountains. She tried her best not to sound out of breath, but as they finally reached the tower, she breathe out. Norella narrowed her eyes a little, mostly trying to figure out what his plan actually was. He opened the window, which made her step a little closer. Norella didn't say much, her eyes spoke for her. She was curious and longed for the unknown.A smile followed by a light snort came from her by his comment as he crawled out the window. Norella lived in the mountains when she could and loved the heights. It would suck to be a giant-bird with a fear of flying.

Norella knew her mother would kill her, if she ruined the dress. However, Norella had a few skills to get on the roof with more ease. Creating a step of ice right outside of the window, she stepped out on it, making another one appear out from the roof. Norella stepped on the ice-steps till she found a place where she could climb on without struggle. She felt the wind in her hair, and the chill touch of the cold on her skin. Norella smiled so brightly as she moved closer to Anthony, almost feeling a little to brave with holding her balance. It was her nature to be up this high, and looking around the dark night. She almost lost her balance and bursted out into laughter. "Okay you win best spot of the town," she confessed and looked around once again.

Anthony didn't notice her way of using the ice, instead he offered her a hand to get up on the roof with him. Her admittance made him chuckle, sitting down on the slanted tiles looking out over the city. "People always say that the royal garden is the best place in Gaia, but they haven't seen the view from up here," he said, smiling to himself. Maybe it was a little strange for a werewolf to like heights, however he found that this was the greatest place to clear his mind. "If you have great eyesight, you can see Moonlight Falls from here," he said, pointing in the direction. "Of course it is a bit hard to spot because of the enchantment, but magic has a way of glimmering in the moonlight," he said. Maybe he was giving away some secrets, but he felt like he could just have a real conversation with Norella. She was nice, she listened, and most of all, she seemed genuine in everything she did.
Turning his head, he looked at her with a smile. If he had been in a cheesy romcom he would've said she was the greatest view. But he was way too shy for that right now. "So ... Uhm ... What brings you to Gaia?" he asked, smiling a little. It was silly to think that he could even have a chance. The fact he was even thinking about it made him feel naive.

She had once flied over the castle with Alexander many years ago, but the city had changed. Clearly Queen Alycia had brought her own kind of magic to the garden. Norella smiled when he mentioned eyesight, because hers had always been great, so it didn't take look till she could spot Moonlight Falls. "Yea, I see it," she confirmed with a brighter smile lighting up on her face. "I'm a Thunderbird.. or a Cyrobird if you wanna be specific, spotting glimmering things is one of my hidden talents," she confessed with a cheesy smile and looked back at him shortly. "It's incredible beautiful," she added almost breathless and looked back at the moonlight. His next question made her look back at him, and she folded her lips shortly before licking them. Norella breathed in before replying, "my sister was invited to the coronation," she scratched her neck a little and grabbed her arm across her body with her left hand. "She asked me to join her, since it is a good change for her to create some alliances. I'm helping her a little, but she has the charm," she chuckled a little and shook her head," so she dosen't really need my help." Norella looked back at the moon, "I don't really have much to do, so a change of scenery seemed like a great idea for me. Guess, I'm lucky to be somewhat duty free." Once again she realized he didn't know who she was. And it was nice being in Gaia like this, walking around almost carefree. "What is your biggest dream?" Norella turned her hazeleyes back at him with wondering almost dreamy look. She wanted to know him, what his dreams were.

As she explained why she was there he nodded, looking a little surprised as she said she didn't have any duty. Daughter of someone rich, he guessed, but it didn't make him think lesser of her. Some people saw the rich as lazy, and perhaps there was some truth behind it, but she didn't strike him as someone who was lazy. "Must be nice ... Not really having any obligations," he said, an eyebrow raised as he wasn't sure if she thought the same. Anthony had always been a hard worker, wether it be a student or as a cook here at the castle. He always wanted to improve, become better. So when she asked for what his biggest dream was he felt a little shy once more, laying down on the roof to look up at the stars above them. "I think I want to have a family some day; a wife and kids ... But most people these days are more occupied with traveling or getting a career," he said with a small chuckle. Turning his head he looked at her. "I guess I sound old fashioned, but it's more of a life goal than anything," he explained. "What about you?"

"Sometimes. I do have some obligations, people expect things from me. They always have," she admitted and took a sharper breath in. Norella had always been happy that she wasn't meant to be Queen. That kind of responsibility wasn't meant for her. Norella had always taken on more knowledge on her path to finding herself, and even some ways still were unclear - she wasn't lost. Norella followed him down on the roof, but kept on sitting at first. Her eyes gazed at the moon, as she listened to him talk. It was a nice dream. Norella had been married before, but it wasn't for love. "Old fashioned for some. I quite like the idea of a family on my own," she confessed and laying down next to him. "Life is filled with choices and different paths. I once used to think of the future as frighting, especially after my father died," she told and kept looking at the moon before turning her head to the side, "but life is beautiful. Challenging but beautiful, filled with so much to do if you just look for it," Norella smiled at him, looking into his eyes. "What I want?" She moved her eyes back up at the moon. Norella licked her lips softly as she thought about it, "I want to be the best I can be. Be passionate about something, maybe even satisfy me curiosity," she knew it wasn't specific but more abstract. That was how she liked life, filled with endless things to do and goals to achieve.

Anthony smiled at her words, nodding in agreement. Life was challenging at time, but he liked that. Laying here under the moon he moved his hand up, pretending to catch it, but of course he couldn't do that, opening his hand once more, just looking at it through his spread fingers. As she started to elaborate on her own dream, he couldn't help but smile. It sounded nice as well, [color=#556DA5]"I think that sounds possible, especially as you seem so free already," he remarked. He could sense it, almost in her scent. There was something about her that made him want to know this wild cryobird.
Letting his hand fall down by his side. "Have you found that something to be passionate about then?" he asked rather curious. If it had to keep her satisfied, it could take years to find exactly what she was looking for. He himself enjoyed cooking, but he did want more in life than to just be a cook, even if that was his dream job. "Or is it more a question of someone?" he added, turning to look at her with a smile. He knew a little about heartbreak, but he was far from an expert. The few girlfriends he had had, the relationship had ended mostly because the two didn't want the same in life.

It was possible, she knew if she believed it - that it would be. Norella was free, more free than most. Freedom was important to her, and along with some sort of stability, things went perfectly. Or as perfect as it could be. The question was good, and echoed in the back of her mind. It made her reflect and her thoughts exploded even further. "Sadly no, not quite yet. I have a few things I need to let go off first, but I feel like It's going to be epic," she confessed with a little half smirk to herself. Norella had a few things in coming back to Gaia, mostly because of her former relationships here. It was way to many years since she had went back here. Caine had told her not long ago, that he thought of her to hold great power. It made her wonder if he had a secret plan for her, but she knew she would never give in to the power hunger. It was a promise she had made for herself. "Even if its something or someone," she took a little breath in and looked at him with a warm smile, "I believe it will be right. Like a fitting piece of the puzzle that simply always has been missing."

"But there are so many puzzle pieces out there ... How will you know when it's the one that fits perfectly?" he asked. He wanted to know, no rather, he needed to. She was like a free bird, always in flight and something in him wanted to see where that freedom would take her. Turning over so that he laid on his side facing her he studied how she laid there. She looked at peace, relaxed as if they had known each other forever, but of course he was too blind to see the effect he had on others. "I mean, what if you've already passed up on that real puzzle piece? Or what if it will never appear?" he asked, chuckling a bit as he felt silly. Glancing up at the stars he sighed. "I think that is what is wrong with the lives we lead; We always think there's going to be something better around the corner, when what we really need is right in front of us," he said, closing his eyes as the wind passed them by. Frowning he caught the scent of something, sitting up as he looked in the direction the wind had come from. Looking in to the darkness, he could see anything as clear as day. "Did you smell that?" he mumbled.

"I guess that is one of life's great mysteries, what is the point of knowing all the answers?" She asked with a little laugh to herself. There was a sad truth in the covered up laugh, because what if she wasn't meant to be forever with anyone. That she had lost her chance? "Maybe I just need to start looking more at what is in front of me than," she looked over at him with a little smile as he closed his eyes. She frowned when he did, and sat up. Norella looked around trying to see if she could figure out just what it was. "Yeah, what was that?" Mostly a question she asked herself. Something in her knew it was dangerous to come to Gaia in a time like this, a lot of royals where in town. Even her sister's guard had advised them not to go, every royal could be a target. On the top of the list Katerina was a trybrid, and Queen. Norella was the only one of her kind, the only Thunderbird with blue feathers like ice. They were targets, but Norella refused to look at the danger for what it was and it made it even more dangerous. Norella knew a few years back their had been an attack on Abigal and Felicity Mikaelson, a kidnapping that almost had turned rather bloody. "Can you see anything?" She asked in a low voice. Her eyesight was excellent in daylight, but he was a werewolf - his other senses was possible better than hers in this situation.

Anthony growled under his breath, looking in to the darkness, the shadow was still too far away. "Lay low," he said, crawling over to the edge of the roof to get a better look. It was something in the forrest, something he couldn't pin-point. "Fresh blood," he mumbled. It was quite a way down from up here, but he was sure that he could climb down easily. "Heading east," he mumbled before he started climbing down the tower. When he was at a height that he knew he could manage, he jumped down, making sure to land correctly. He looked up at Norella, knowing she could easily just fly down from there. Anthony's body shook a little, mostly because the smell was so apparent down here, but he still couldn't tell what the scent was from, however he followed it. In through the woods, following the scent, and the closer he got, the more the scent of fear filled his nostrils. Who ever was hurt, was scared as well. He heard a twig break, turning to his right to see a dog, golden haired and clearly hurt, blood running from a wound in it's abdomen. "Hey! Hey!" Anthony tried to yell, but the dog was clearly struck by pure instinct, trying to keep running despite how hurt it was.

As soon as he mentioned blood, her body became aware. It was the predator in her, a beast she still had her own combats with time to time. The fight was based on karma, and her own fault. It was hundred years ago since she had returned from isolation in her bird shape, but years as an animal had a lasting effect - even after many years past. He jumped down, which made Norella take a deep breath in. so much for a quite night. She made a field of ice, she could slide down on, and landed on the ground. Norella looked around, it would have been a good idea to call for back up. Maybe just make Hope aware of something not being right, but then, if she did. Hope would just throw her ass in bed, and what would the fun be in that? Anthony was already heading towards the woods, there was no time to waste. If someone was running it meant the person was running from someone or something. Norella started running, but in her human shape she wasn't much faster than a human. It would take to much time and grant her to much pain to switch between shapes anyways. Finally she caught up with Anthony in the woods. She looked around and a worried expression reached her eyes. "She is running from something or someone.. and that might still be outhere with us," she let the cold reach her eyes, and the hazel color was replaced with ice colored. Norella generated the told, she had to be aware if anything was to come. "I should have called for Hope," she mumbled to herself and held her breath for a little. Norella knew they were being hunted, by what was the greater question. She wasn't thinking much about the stranger running, she was more afraid of her own safety in this matter and Anthony's. "Can you see anyone, in the trees.. anything. Your night vision is better than mine," she asked in a low whisper, leaning her head closer to his. It was clear she was worried about what ever was out there, but not enough to run away from it either. The ice cold almost white eyes looked into his, before she looked away again. It wasn't often she let people look into her eyes when they were like that.

Anthony let the dog run, frowning at Norella's words. She was right. Whatever had hurt that dog was still out here, and he was not planning on getting hurt right now, nor letting her befall to any danger. He was way ahead of her, trying to look in to the forrest. A roar was heard, but it didn't sound like an animal that Anthony had ever heard of before. He looked in to Norella's eyes, seeing the ice cold blue instead of her warm hazel colored. He didn't really have time to ask her about it as a large bear like creature stepped out from the cold. Standing on it's hind legs it roared, making Anthony snare in return, instinctively getting in front of Norella.
However if Norella looked closely, she would see the bear having green eyes, once that looked like someone that used to be close with her older sister. The bear roared before collapsing, and as it hit the ground, a naked red haired girl appeared in it's stead. The werewolf was mildly put, in complete shock. He had never seen anything like this, and not really expected the large beast to turn in to a fragile woman.

The roar made Norella's heart skip a beat, and she already had formed a dagger of ice in her right hand. Her head turned towards the sound as the bear showed up from the darkness. Norella frowned a bit looking into the green eyes, after all she spent plenty of time with people who transformed into animals. Anthony stepped in front of her, which surprised her, not that it showed. Norella looked at him shortly before returning her eyes to the bear collapsing on the ground. Norella let the iced shaped dagger fall to the ground. A girl appeared on the cold ground, and the cyrobird rushed over to her. "Keeva?" She whispered softly, pulling the girl's hair a bit back to see her face. "She is alright, mostly just exhausted from the transformation," Norella returned her eyes over at the shocked werewolf. "I know what that is like," she whispered underneath her breath. Norella was mostly forced to be in her bird shape, it was draining to be human. Most species felt it the other way around or at least in a type of balance. "She is a friend of my sister," she then confirmed. Maybe now it was time to call a little security for help. Norella knew most of her sister's friend, not that she was close with them, but she knew which to trust and not to. "Jeez, Nor. You know it's my night off," a voice appeared from the darkness as the blonde demon merged from the shadows. "Oh, hey handsome," she greeted Anthony before looking back at Norella and the other girl.

Hope walked over and picked the stranger up, like Norella she knew the people Katerina was close with. "I'm gonna shadow drop all your asses back to the castle," and before they could argue with her, they where in an empty room in the castle. Hope placed Keeva on the bed, and covered her skin with a blanket. "What are you guys even doing out in the forest at this hour. It's not safe," she looked more strictly at Norella but then looked over at Antony. It was Eudora's cousin, which meant she couldn't really let anything happen to him either. "We were just talking,"-"In the woods?" Hope raised an eyebrow before she shook her head. "Your sister would kill me if anything happens to you, and you know it," she pointed at Norella a little before returning her blue eyes back at Keeva. "Yup, I know that."

Keeva laid on the ground, her body twitching a bit fro exhaustion, but everything else seemed quite alright with her. Anthony felt like he had to look away, taking his shirt off and handing it to Norella to place it on the redheaded woman. He didn't think that she would like being naked like that. Nodding at the cryobird's words about the woman being her sister's friend, he only looked back once Keeva was somewhat modest. That was when he heard a voice that made him frown a little. He felt like it was recognizable, and as he turned to look it was none other than Hope Marshall - The woman that his cousin had been dating. Talk about awkward. He didn't really get to have a say in anything before he felt the cold shadows surround him and they were back inside the castle. He took a step away from the bed, not wanting to interfere in any privacy, and stood for a bit as Norella and Hope started discussing.
"Hope, I thought you worked for the royal family ..?" he suddenly spurted out, looking at the demon with a lot of confusion on his face. That was when everything hit him like a tonne of bricks. Norella, she had a bigger sister and so did the princess of Illien. Swallowing he closed his eyes, looking down. "I am so sorry ... It was my mistake," he said. He was shaking a little, mostly because he felt like he had been indecent towards a princess. Was he going to be punished for that? Excusing himself he moved out in to the hallway, going over to one of the large windows that he opened, breathing in the fresh air to calm him down. However it didn't seem to work. He had spent the night with a princess, granted he hadn't touched her inappropriately, only holding her hand when they snuck past the guard, but his thoughts had been far from decent. Of course she was out of his league, he should've known that from the beginning, however he had just wanted to turn a blind eye to it.

"I do-" Hope looked at the confused werewolf then at Norella, "I see. You got some catching up to do," she exhaled before giving Keeva her attention once again. Norella took a sharp breath in, and watched him step out. "Perfect," she mumbled slightly irritated by the fact he now knew. The fear off him not seeing her like herself again after this hit her right in the stomach. Norella had to make a choice, to follow the path and see where it would lead her, or simply just allow it to vanish. "You can go out for him if you want. He is a good guy," she spoke and looked back at Norella, "I will look after the princess. Don't worry. Just stay in the castle," she pointed at Norella with a little strict eye before giving her a little smile. Norella looked at Hope and took a sharper breath in. She felt her heart skip a beat as she stepped out to the hallway. "You know, you don't have to say sorry for anything," she then broke the silence as she walked up to him. "I didn't mean to freak you out, you know." Norella felt nervous, why was she nervous? Her heart began to beat a little faster, not knowing what to expect from him after learning the truth. "Please don't feel lesser of me for not saying it," it wasn't because she had lied about it, she would never, but she had still held back parts of the truth. But she didn't want him to look different at her, just because she was a princess.

Anthony closed his eyes, breathing in the night air blowing in from the window. He felt stupid. He should've known who she was from the moment she said her name, and yet he had wanted to not believe it was so. He heard footsteps behind him, and the scent of her filled his nostrils. Her words stung, mostly because he wanted to apologize even more now. Turning around as she almost pleaded him not to think badly of him, he sighed, looking in to her hazel eyes. "How could I ever think lesser of you?" he asked, however he was rather hurt. He knew that royal people had it hard, but had he not seemed trustworthy enough? Had she wanted to not ever tell him if she had it her way? "I don't have any right to judge you for what you did ... But I guess I was just trying to fool myself," he said, looking down as he didn't quite know how to describe the feeling he had right now. He wasn't mad or sad, rather he was disappointed in himself.

"I don't know," she breathed out and took a sharper breath in. It had been nice while it lasted, to be a little bit normal. "I was the one fooling myself Anthony, not you," she pointed out and returned her gaze towards him. "Usually, people only see me for what I am. Not who I am," she grabbed her lower lip with her teeth shortly, "It was nice having someone looking at just me," Norella admitted and twirled a little bit of hair around two fingers. Norella didn't know what she wanted from this, it wasn't like her to keep the search like this. There had been something, there was something about the way he looked at her. She couldn't describe it, but it added something in her soul she didn't know she needed. Norella knew it could be something his mind just had to accept first, and she hoped that he did. She was tired of the perfect act a Princess seemed to need, especially when she wasn't home. Home she could relax a bit more, and just play it cool. It was like in the castle she had to play a part. If she misbehaved, it could cause her sister some strong connections with the other kingdoms. The act was the hardest part, because they still had to meet a people like Rebekah Sinclair - and that witch was scary. Thunderbirds usually didn't talk to her, since she was the cause of their curse.

Breathing out he looked down as she said she had just wanted to be normal. He could understand that, that people probably judged her left and right for the title she bore, but had he shown any signs of dismissal of the royals? "I'm not really good at making friends ... Always been a bit of a lone wolf, but you ... The way you look at me, I just don't feel alone," he said, frowning as he didn't know if his words made sense. He had never really declared himself as a lone wolf, and was still in his family's pack, but he had always felt out of steps with them. He was much more reliant on instinct rather than what was expected of him. "I sound stupid again," he mumbled, shaking his head as he frowned. Scratching his neck a little he looked back at Norella.
"Listen, I really liked the time we spent tonight, even though it ended a little weird," he said, truth shining from his green eyes. "But despite all of this, I am still a rather young man; I've been alone with you despite what is the norm for royals like you," he said, feeling a little embarrassed. He hadn't kept his mind clean, because what man could do that when she looked at him the way she did.

"Well, I'm not good at making friends either, I guess we can start from there then?" She suggested and tilted her head a little to the side with a warmer smile. "Then none of us is alone," she added with a little smirk. Norella had a bunch of family members, she was the oldest of a handful siblings on her mothers side, then she had three older half siblings. The one she was closest with was Katerina. However, she was still different from them. It had always made her feel excluded in some ways. "You don't sound stupid to me at all," she confessed and took a deeper breath in. It was true their night had ended quite weird and far from where she had thought it would. "That is true, but I am still just a girl; who wants to be able to talk with someone. Besides, I hate the norms of royalty," she added tilting her head a little to the other night. Norella had never been the fan of order and rules, but she was still quite loyal to her sister. "What I've told you tonight isn't less true because of some titel. I want you to know that," she kept her eyes at his and took a deeper breath in.

"I would like that," Anthony admitted with a warm smile spreading on his lips. He liked Norella, there was no doubt about it, and for some reason he could feel a pull towards her. Like he just needed her in her life. As she went on to explain that she still was just a woman that had feelings and thoughts like everyone else, he felt a bit of shame creep up on him. Had he been too fast to judge her? The time they had spent on that rooftop, she had been so beautiful to look at. It was as if he could see her soul shining through, and the look of relaxation in her eyes had told him much more than words could. "I'm sorry," he said. He would probably keep apologizing forever, but he wanted her to know that whatever intention he had, was not bad at all. He liked her. Probably more than he should for her being nothing more than a stranger, but if this had time to grow, a beautiful friendship was sure to sprout from the seed they planted now.
"I'll be quite busy in the days leading up to the coronation," he said, looking down. She was maybe only in town because of that, and now he felt like he was wasting his time. "But ... I still want to make an effort to see you - If you'd like to of course," he said, a shy smile spreading on his lips. "Oh, and if you are free to do so ... I wouldn't want to keep you from your duties," he added, feeling a little flustered. Anthony frankly didn't know what things royal had to attend to, well besides the dinners he would make in the kitchen.

She breathed out, feeling like some of the heavy stones were lifted from her chest. Norella nodded as she understood he had to be busy, she, herself had plenty of planning to do on her behalf. Norella still wasn't sure how Alexander would react to her being here, it had been so long since last time they saw each other. "I would like that," she confessed with and folded her lips in a little smile. "I will make it work," other than having Abigal finding her a dress and rehears the coronation - there was not much for her to do. "My sister has the most duties, I'm just the cool sidekick," she then confessed and ran a hand over her hair. People often saw Caterina more than they saw her, not that she had a problem with that. It meant more freedom to Norella. It was a weird world they lived in, and she'd had centuries to figure out what her place was. "But I'm staying for a while. My sister is trying to get more alliances and the coronation is perfect for that. Besides, she likes that not everyone in Gaia knows who she is at first sight," Norella looked outside and up at the star painted night sky with a little smirk.
