Really, Pandora hadn't felt so free in such a very long time. The weather was warm enough, but not humid, yet, so she'd had some lovely walks about, window shopping. Of course, her feet were beginning to hurt and she'd eaten all the candy she brought. But still, it was a  happy time. Such lovely colors in the windows. She was dazzled by all the commercial lull of things. If only, life could truly be that artificial. But it wasn't. There was still that baby bum to contend with. She bit her bottom lip trying to figure out what to do next.

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's that?" She gave him a slight giggle.

"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.
