Scarlett looked up at the building in front of her, then back down at the card she was holding, and sighed.

She didn't date. For one thing, she didn't have time these days, now she was getting regular work again; what she'd done with Halvard had gotten around in the circles where it mattered, and her client base had mostly shifted from tabloids to proper researchers. It was a kind of work she was much more excited about doing, to the extent that she occasionally neglected her personal safety in the pursuit of it. While it was nice to feel that way again it didn't leave much time for romance.

More than that, though, she found it harder and harder to connect with people lately, at least people who weren't involved in the magical scene she'd immersed herself in. She couldn't tell if she was distancing herself on purpose or what, but she'd never quite readjusted after all that time she'd spent away from civilization. She had hoped to eventually be able to leave that behind her.

"Maybe today's the day," she said under her breath, and walked into the café.

I'm not a gangster tonight
Don't wanna be a bad guy
I'm just a loner, baby
And now you've gotten in my way

I can't decide whether you should live or die
Oh you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why my heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride

Lucila had arrived almost an hour early, and was now beginning to regret that decision. She'd drunk way, way too much coffee out of anxiety and needing an excuse to remain here, and she practically jumped out of her chair every time another Kuhna walked in, just in case her date was early. Cato hadn't given her a proper description, and she'd been too nervous to try pressing for one. Another decision she now regretted.

As she was thinking this, another Kuhna pushed through the doors, looking down at a card in her hand. The newcomer stared at the card for several long seconds, then swept her gaze around the room, briefly lingering on a Fellox in the corner before settling on Lucila.

The other Kuhna was coming toward her table. Lucila almost spilled her most recent drink.

"Hi," the other Kuhna said when she got close. "Are you Lucila?"

"Yes," Lucila squeaked, and then more or less got ahold of herself. "Er, yes, that's me. You must be Scarlett, then."

"That's right." Scarlett took one last look at the card before slipping it into a pocket in her belt, and sitting down. The two of them looked at each other for what felt to Lucila like a lifetime.

"Are you drinking anything?" Lucila said, just to break the silence.

"Right, this is a café, isn't it." Scarlett smiled. "I'll, um, I'll be right back."

Well, she certainly did seem like someone Cato would know. Anything else remained to be seen, Lucila supposed.
