“I don’t know if you’ve heard, but he used to be brother Zachariah.” she nodded pleasantly as she made way for Gerard to pass by. Once he was out of the sticky situation, Tessa kept mopping he remaining oily portion of the floor. “No worries. Glad to be of help, Mr. Gerard.”
“Oh, your companion is James Carstairs?” Gerard watched the warlock clean the floor before asking “Are you sure there is nothing I could do to repay you?”
“I hope so. Jem being a Silent brother before, I assume his knowledge in direction is wide. But I can’t thinking maybe he got lost his way back here somehow…” she frowned at the thought as she finished mopping the right side of the floor.
“A former Silent brother? Interesting, but I wouldn’t worry he’ll turn up sooner or later.” Gerard made his way over to the clean side of the hall and stood up glad to be free of the butter. “Thank you again.”
Laughing as she went, she grabbed the mop resting against the corner of the wall, a few meters away from the kitchen. She then picked up an empty bottle and refilled it water from the sink. After filling them in, she hurriedly went back to the person sprawled or sitting patiently on the floor for her return. Once his sitting figure emerged from gradually, she raised the mop in her hand and hollered for his attention, “Got it!” Once she was paced right next to the man, just out of perimeter from the greasy floor. “Okay, could you, um, scoot for a moment?” she asked as she she tipped the water bottle downwards, the contents spilling slowly out of it. Satisfied, she placed the bottle over the floor and started mopping the oily surface. “I’m Tessa Gray, by the way.” she offered small talk to pass the time.
Moving as much as he could to avoid the water Gerard watched as the
warlockTessa cleaned the floor “Gerard. Gerard Beltrano, normally I might say pleasure to meet you but unfortunately these aren’t the best circumstances for meeting new people. Nevertheless I am grateful for your help.”
