Aventus’s London Residence
She was probably a bad person. But you know what, Aventus deserved to suffer after calling her out of the blue for help after two years instead of visiting her. Plus it wasn’t really suffering considering cheese enchiladas Tex-Mex were wicked amazing. But still the Spanish Nosferatu would probably be deeply displeased with her western Texas take on Spanish food. And he would just have to go and fight her about that later. Peregrine grinned as she checked on the food before moving to set the dining room up with three plates. She recognized that neither of her guests really had to eat but it was the best way to meet her potential new client. Nothing put people more at ease in an uncomfortable situation than comforts like food and a warm setting. Plus with her staying with Aventus, there was actual food for them if either did come hungry.
After all, this was just supposed to be a meet-and-greet between her and Aventus’s nephew. Like always she was a little anxious. Her hand wandered back to the runes tattooed on the back of her neck and gently pressed on one. It helped to keep her balanced with her anxiety. Peregrine just needed to remind herself that despite her overwhelming need to help that these things could never be forced and she couldn’t rush. Otherwise that would be counter-productive to treatment even if Everett ended up deciding to seek other help. She couldn’t help everyone. Her good leg bent suddenly almost tumbling her to the floor. She sighed when she looked down at her kneazle, Rwow, patting her head. ”Go play. I’m okay, promise,” she said to the cat-like creature that then took off.
With her thoughts calmed, she glanced at the time. Oh, she had a few extra minutes well that was nice. Using her wand to set the table, Peregrine made sure she looked alright. Casually professional in slacks and a long blouse. She’d even done up her hair and her make-up was on point for someone who was jetlagged to hell and back. At least she had given herself a day to rest once she had flown in. After everything Aventus had told her, and she had intentionally kept it to the minimum so she could experience Ev for herself and not make pre-judgements about his situation, Peregrine had rushed through getting on the fastest plane to London. Cashed in her time off at work, set up the nice room Aventus was spoiling her with, and not to mention the seven hour flight that had left her nearly bedridden the day before. Luckily her hip was doing better today and she hadn’t even needed to use her cane.
With her appearance ready and the food nearly ready, Peregrine allowed another moment to relax. Aventus had gone to get Everett and probably giving him a prep talk about herself. She smiled again as Rwow responded to her wandering thoughts as she waited for the two men. With a few claps, the large ball of black and cream fur burst up and into her arms. She hugged the creature and leaned against the kitchen counter as she waited, her hazel eyes settled on the clock as watched the time.
