Should she find Effy? Or just take care of herself. Get back to the village as fast as she could. It was a miserable thought, because, really, what was there back for her. A lovely ex-boyfriend who could dazzle her with many languages who'd hooked up with a bitch, or the likes of Cook who was just an all around nasty fellow who couldn't quit taking from anyone, and had nothing to give back.
Well, Pandora kept smiling. There was another gallery to walk around in, take her mind off a bit. Free, too. It was lovely, to walk away from this harsh world. Drug-free, yet whimsical.
It was there she caught someone sketching in their sketch book. He was a bit bookish. Glasses and all. She couldn't take her eyes off him. There was just something amazingly beautiful about him. But he was awful shy.
"What?" He looked up at her, deep in thought. "Oh, this, its nothing." He shook his head.
"It looks quite spectacular." It was a drawing of a comic character. Lightening bolts about it. Sizzling colors.
"Really?" He almost smiled when he looked at her. "I had no idea, actually."
Pandora just smiled, as if she'd said too much.
"You from around here?" He followed her then to the next painting of pinks and blues of clouds and trees.
"No." She put her hands behind her back.
"Would you like a coffee?" He winced. "With me." He was a bit nervous as he introduced himself. He was Logan, and he told her he lived not far from the gallery. He came here everyday just to sketch.
"Usually, my own stuff. Just inspired, you know." He told her a few moments later at the coffee shop down the street. He bought her sweets and watched her wolf down the muffins she'd chosen.
"Are you OK?" He then wanted to know.
"Absolutely." She grinned. "You're here." Everything was quite lovely with Logan around, she'd decided.
"Look, Pandora, do you need a place to stay?" He then glared at her seriously.
"Actually, a nap might do me good." She nodded.
"All right. Then we'll go back to my place. I have a couple of flat-mates, but they should be fine with you. Really." Logan told her.
"OK, can't wait to meet them." She sighed as laughter filled her inside. She couldn't ask for anything more.
