Iris Lark     Iris has long since left Acme, making her way home to Avalon. She left a note behind for Abdiel, giving him directions on how to find her home. She is currently ensconced in the kitchen, boiling water for tea. Darkness is falling outside and a cool breeze wafts through the open doors of the medium sized home.
Abdiel     Abdiel followed the directions and knocked on the door way once he arrived and waited for her to invite him in. He looks around and smiles. "Nice place. Did you grow up here?" He asks curiously as he studies the woman and what she is doing. For now he remains quiet until she answers his question.
Iris Lark     Iris swallows as she turns to give Abdiel a brief smile, that is more grimace, and she shakes her head. "This is a recent build, actually. I grew up in a, and have only recently come to stay in this area." She tilts her head and then adds. "Six months, about?"

She gestures to a couch and walks back towards the living area. "Have a seat, would you like some tea when it's done seeping?" She asks, managing a smile that time, even if it's not very bright.
Abdiel     "I grew up in utah. In New Canaan." Abdiel says with a friendly smile and moves to sit to where she gestures. "In a camp, would it have happened to be a legion camp? Would you believe that the second in command of the legion was one of our missionaries? You may have heard of him, Joshua Graham."
Iris Lark     Iris takes a seat and crosses her legs, her face carefully blank. "I have heard the name." She says slowly, her hands folding on her lap. "It..uhm..well yes, it was a legion camp, actually." She nervously shifts in her seat and after gazing around the area where they're sitting she continues. "Did he..repent while he was with your group?"
Abdiel     "We found him on the way back to New canaan. He was burned from head to toe, covered in pitch and thrown in the grand canyon. We welcomed him back, forgiving him for the crimes he commited while legate for the legion. I believe he repented after seeing us welcome him back like a long lost brother...I am afraid I dont know what became of him. New canaan was attacked by a tribe wanting to join the legion. The earth was even salted to prevent the land from being used. I came this far east to try and evade the tribe." He says softly.
Iris Lark     "I hope you've been successful in evading them, it would not be good if they came near El Dorado, people are pretty protective of their freedom here." Iris says, her eyes lingering on Abdiel as she carefully chooses her words. "Do you have reason to believe that you were followed?" She gets to her feet then and makes her way to the kitchen, pouring two mugs of steaming tea before she comes back to the couch. She holds out a cup for her guest before she takes a seat.
Abdiel     "I believe I am successful in evading them. If not we will know it soon enough." Abdiel says as he accepts his mug and sips the tea, burning his tongue on it a little. "I hope you dont mind that I help you with the clinic. I learned my medicine from a shaman of a tribe who I worked with once during my missionary work."
Iris Lark     "I want the people in the city to be able to find succor easily, so the more people we have working in the Clinic the easier it is." Iris says, offering Abdiel a smile before she sets her mug aside to cool a bit. "I have lately been out here and in Acme more than in town, so you volunteering there will help Camilla a fair bit." She glances briefly towards the door and then back to the man sitting near her. "You won't mind if I tell the Sheriff about the tribe, in case they do end up coming near the city?"
Abdiel     "Dont mind at all. Probably would make me feel a little better. If you want When I head back to town I can let him know the next time that I do see him." He says before taking a breath. "If you dont mind me asking, Miss Lark. I am curious as to what you believe in. Do you believe in god?"
Iris Lark     Iris lets that question hang in the air for a short moment before she frowns and shifts uncomfortably. "I do not." She finally answers, her cheeks going pink as she manages to look Abdiel in the face. "I can't believe in god when I went through what I did, I can't believe it all happened for a reason either." She looks away, her face a bit ashamed.
Abdiel     "God works in mysterious ways. In day and age it is difficult to believe in him but he is still there. He is with us when we suffer, and when we are also happy." Abdiel says softly. "If you rather I just keep my religious talk to myself, I can and will. The last thing I desire is to make you uncomfortable."
Iris Lark     "Mysterious ways." Iris says bitterly, leaning back on the couch, a thoughtful and slightly angry look on her face. "I won't tell you what I've been through in the years I was kept against my will. He may have been *with* me, but he didn't go through what I did." She takes a breath and then rubs a hand over her face. "I'm sorry, I'm not usually so on edge." She says quietly, picking up her mug and taking a slow sip. "I'm sure there are plenty of people who might like your council though I may not be one that benefits from it."
Abdiel     "In the brief time I have met you, I believe you are a good soul, you help others. Like you I desire to help others, wether it is by spreading the word of god or tending to someone's injuries." Abdiel says as he sips his tea and smiles. "In the end we help those in need."
Iris Lark     "Well, I try to help people, sometimes I do a better job than other times." Iris says, taking a breath as she tries to get back to being at ease. "Like I said earlier though, there are plenty of empty exam rooms in the Clinic, if you'd like, I can try to get some furniture and turn one into a ..private room of sorts for you?" She pauses a beat. "Or I can help you find somewhere to stay."
Abdiel     "I can pay to stay in the saloon and then work out of the clinic when need be. Is there anyone else that works at the clinic that you think I should meet?" Abdiel asks as he sips more tea. "This is delicious by the way." He says with a friendly smile.
Iris Lark     Iris cradles the cup close to her, taking comfort in its warmth as she purses her lips in thought. "Well right now the people who work there are..Kurokumo, Sparrow, Camilla, Percy and Qwillis." She says, curling her legs up and tucking them underneath her. "Sparrow won't be in El Dorado for a bit, so if you've any questions I would encourage you to speak to Camilla and Qwillis." She takes a sip of her tea and offers Abdiel a smile. "Thank you, I'm glad you like it."
Abdiel     "Well I should probably head back to El Dorado. Thank you for the tea." Abdiel says as he finishes his tea and smiles at Iris. "I hope to help you out." Abdiel says as he gets up and begins to head out.
Iris Lark     "It doesn't take much to help me, but please let me know if I can help you. Even if it's something as simple as finding you a home in town. The Saloon is nice, but there is better out there." Iris seems as if she might reach out to shake his hand but she doesn't, shifting on her feet instead. "Let me know if you need me for anything."
Abdiel     "I will let you know. Thanks for letting me help out." Abdiel says with a smile and leaves.
