    Petals outstretch, reaching to the sun as it reaches it Zenith. And within its cavity, the scarred body of a young girl sleeps within the golden pool of nectar floating peacefully within the warm glow of nectar. And though she appears to be in dreaming, behind that serenity is mind scanning out searching silently listening to the lesser minds of all the creatures scurrying thought out the twisted oaks and thickets of chokevine. As her mind reach out with her telepathy, she could the presence of sentient creature... another stranger... makes their approach to Pallavi's secret grove. And though she slumbers, dreaming like a dead, she could sense them trudging down the paths never meant to be traveled: the path to her location.

    While a great and many people come and go... rarely did there approach cause her alarm. But this one... this one did for instead of straying off the path it continues march on to her location. She questioned if came walking with intent if their transect a product of chance? While the person was still well beyond reaching her flower filled meadow... she sense now was the time to intervene... to touch their mind and save a life before they continue down a path from which there was to be no return. Focusing her energies on that one minuscule mind... she opens a telepathic link to there mind, a sonorous enchanting voice drawing out her words as they echos inside Lucan's skull.

    [Whooo... are... thou? And why do you come these woods? If thou is lost... I can guide thou safe passage though I ask that thou return from whence came from for if thou continue, thou will only find... death.] commanded disembodied voice to Lucan though his mind. If Lucan were to look around he would only see only the twisted oaks, dark and dreary, surrounding him as their leaves chock out the sun with only scattered pockets of light making through.

    Lucan would stop, his tail appearing and wrapping around the branch to keep him steady. There was a voice going through his head, a girl was talking directly into his head. "Uh..hello?" he'd glance around, he couldn't see anyone, which confirmed that she was talking in his head, a telepath, "I'm Lucan."

    He'd jump ahead, moving through the trees 's bit further, "death?" he'd stop, tilting his head as they talked, "I'll be fine miss, I can take care of myself." He'd teleport a few tree ahead and he continued his journey down this path that the telepath didn't want him following.

    "What's your name?" he'd ask as he reverted to jumping from tree to tree, "do you live here?" he hadn't heard of anyone living here, but this island was full of surprises.

    Okey well, on a positive note they could hear on her... on a less positive note they seem rather unconcerned with her attempts to warn them to turn back. She wanted to explain why it is that has to turn back but to do so would mean revealing what she is to to this Lucan... and she can't trust people to not tell. No... all he needed to know is that the shouldn't come and hoped that it would be enough for her to turn back.

    [...thou shall know me as a humble nature spirit and nothing more. In this place I do live but home... it is not. Thou has confidence but not comprehension of your situation... thou trespasses into places not meant to be tread upon by your kind. I ask once again that you turn back, back to warm of your home and those who make you happy... not for only for your safety but for mine as well. And... whatever you do... do not approach the flower fields fields for their inviting beauty... hath become a hallow grave... so please I ask that thou not intrude.]

    "Not your home?" he'd ask as he continued on, hoping from branch to branch, tree to tree, "so you don't want to be here?" He'd stop at one of the final trees, pushing aside a branch to look at the field of flowers past the tree line, "I'm a curious sort miss, always have been. I you don't mind me saying...you sound rather lonely, I'm not here to hurt you," he'd say it all with a calm voice.

    He'd again vanish in a flash of blue and reappear at the edge lf the flowery fields. "Why are you out here?" he'd ask, concern and kindness in his voice, "you sound nice, you shouldn't have to be out here on your own."

    Lucan would step into the field, glancing about, he expected a ghost like spirit to appear, or perhaps something akin to nature fae.

    [Thou curiosity wilst... sorry... could you please sincerely forget this place and leave? Leave while you still can?] demanded Pallavi, dropping the attempts to sound more ancient that she actually was and now speaking with Lucan more frankly, having a distinct British accent in her telepathic voice. She regrets that despite insistent warnings she could not assuage Lucan who proved to curious for their own good.

    [And... please don't mistake my solitude to loneliness... for am I not lacking in companionship as you so believe. My isolation is for everyone's safety... yours included. I sense you near but you can still turn back...]

    With Lucan now now at the edge of the small flower meadow, he could now see an single large flower of great beauty among the vibrant bouquet of colors. Its sweet and delectable fragrance could be smelt even from Lucan's distance, almost as if the scent was inviting them to approach closer.

    "Oh my a fellow Brit?" he'd as with a chuckle, "look, I'm not here to do anything, I'm just a teleporter, popping around and exploring." He'd raise and eyebrow when he saw the flower, it was beautiful, he could even smell it's sweet scent, "whoa...so uh...the flower, it's really beautiful."

    He'd slowly approach it, his eyes looking it up and down curiously, "did you plant it? I don't see any others like it here." It definitely stood out, something unique and different from everything else.

    [British?] wondered Pallavi before realizing that he must have picked up on her British accent... something inherited from her father's side of the family [I... don't really think of myself as one... I lived on this island all my life] mentally remarked Pallavi. In her distraction she almost forgot the fact that Lucan trespassing... at least until he brought up the flower and remembered herself

    [Oh... the flower. Actually...]


    The telepathic voice trails off as Pallavi wakens from her state of dreaming. From the flower's center, the young form of Indian girl in her teenage years emerges from the central pool of golden nectar. Her entire body glistens as the viscous fluid droops off her skin, clothes and hair. Pallavi takes moment to wipe off the larger globs the honey-like substance off and and fixes up the creases of her silken garbs as she tidies herself up. After her brief clean-up, she looks to Lucan offering him a friendly smile.

    "Thats me... hello. Ssorry for not looking my best... I wasn't expecting to have... a visitor." sheepishly greeted Pallavi whom was now using her own voice to speak. She then raised a single arm up to wave at him before she hangs her sullenly low "I guess you found me... though... you were not suppose to..." sighed Pallavi, sounding less enthusiastic.

    Lucan would blink in surprise when the flower opened up, revealing the girl within. "I mean...I'd say you look quite nice," he'd say with a nod, "not every day you see a cute girl emerge from a flower." The half demon would glance around a little, this was certainly unexpected.

    "Well...as I said, my name's Lucan," he'd return the friendly smile with one of his own, "I hope I didn't scare you by coming here or anything." Though Lucan wasn't at all intimidating by most standards, "what are you doing all the way out here?" he'd ask, concern in his voice.

    Pallavi... chose to ignore the compliments and maintain a stone cold expression as Lucan showered her with pleasantries. Though he called her cute... she felt far from... cute not only with the evidence of burns on her exposed body but also the fact that the beauty that was present masked an ugliness below ground.

    "My name is Pallavi. Pallavi Weathers." plainly spoke the girl, forcing herself to smile for her 'guest'. "You... didn't scare me... though it should be you whom should be scared of me. You really don't know what I really now do you."

    Pallavi breathed a sigh, then rests her butt on one of the petals which curls into plushy chair of sorts. She then rests her hands on her lap though instead of legs Lucus would only the remains of scaly tail hidden behind the long silken robes.

    "As for why I am here... I am... waiting... for me my father to tell me when its safe for me to come back home. He... he has been gone for awhile now but... he shuld be back... soon." spoke Pallavi, a small hopeful smile could be seen on her face for a brief moment before she puts on a blank expression "But... your not my father... so... I'm sorry... I'm sorry for what I am going to... have to do to you..."

    Pallavi then raises her hand and with a flick of her finger, a mist starts to envelope the entire flower field. Its advance is slow and while its not thick enough to block anyone's vision, its evident that the fog is growing more and more obscuring by the minute.

    "Sorry for a what?" Lucan would raise an eyebrow as the fog appeared, "nice trick," magic was still a relatively new thing to him, "guessing this is how you've stayed hidden for so long." He'd wave his hand through the thickening fog with a hum, "you should go to the school, they'd give you a place to stay."

    He'd turn back to her, not really minding the fog, he could teleport our if needed, "I don't know where your father is, but you don't have sit out here all alone." The half demon remained calm, "the school, the academy ,they can help you."
