The scent of flowers was gentle, subtle, teasing. It made one stop as they entered the immense openness of the inner hotel sanctum and smell the air, looking for the perfume caressing their senses. Pale, delicate hands gently rearranged the long stems, and green eyes closed for a moment in pleasure of the fresh scent that moving them caused to waft up. A smile curved soft pink lips as a slight sigh escaped them. She breathed in deeply, and then she looked up. The flowers, now resettled, glimmered in the soft light filling the room.

Waves crashed just outside, and Nell watched them for a moment. It was a slow day at the hotel, with the train system still being down due to some terrorist act in Timber. All of Balamb was uncomfortable from the issue, and everyone wanted to just pretend nothing had happened; that a fresh wave of tourists would be there any minute. But no tourists were coming. Sighing again, this time a touch of sadness in it, she looked back at her clerk counter. Then she stood and moved back over to it to begin rearranging papers and organizing some of the old files. It was business as usual, although no customers would be coming.

Oren finished situating his hair behind him as he took in the fresh scent of the flowers and perfumes. Taking in the scents and the scenery, he made his way toward the Balamb Hotel. If he was correct, Myghin's older sister should be at the hotel where she worked. He was dressed in his normal, casual attire with his weaponry hanging from his waist due to the possibility of attack during the journey.

After searching for a short while, he finally came across the building. A very pretty building, it was, but it was also empty. Almost devoid of customers due to the lack of transit from Timber to Balamb. He slowly reached up and pushed open the front door of the hotel and walked in, blinking for a moment at his eyes adjusted from the outdoor light.

Nell lifted her head from the books quickly, slightly startled by the sound of the door opening. Then she relaxed a little as she realized who it was. "Instructor Sjet... How are you this morning? May I help you with something?" She tilted her head, chocolate hair spilling down over her shoulder into her lap. She gently set the books back on the desk as she studied him. The sight of the weaponry hanging easily gave her the chills, and she supposed that even after a life in Timber, part of her would always be a Fisherman's Horizon girl, shunning violence.

He smiled a little bit and closed the door behind him. "I'm well, how about yourself? And no, nothing urgent. I just decided to stop by since I have the day to myself. I also wanted to tell you that your sister is very intelligent. She attended my class yesterday and picked up on the material very quickly and concisely."

"Oh." Nell relaxed in her seat a bit more, smiling. "Thank you... She is very bright isn't she?" She returned to idly filing away the papers, now that she was certain nothing was terribly wrong. "Myghin is absolutely astounding with how she absorbs information. Always has been. But I suppose that's a SeeD candidate quality, isn't it?" She looked up at Oren, her smile still on her face.

Oren nodded, "She's very intelligent and it is an admirable quality for candidacy." He leaned up over the desk, looking curiously at what Nell was doing. After a moment, he raised his eyes to look at her. "So do you have any plans for lunch, Ms. Nell?"

There was a moment of pause before Nell shook her head slowly. "No, not really. What about yourself, Instructor Sjet? Anything planned?" She blushed softly as she met his gaze.

"Well, my plans were to come and ask you as to what your plans were so...I suppose my plans depend now on your plans." His gaze ventured off for a moment as he repeated his last sentence to himself in his head before nodding and looking back at her, blushing slightly. "I guess what I do is ask you out to lunch. My treat in return for the wonderful food from yesterday."

"Do you eat fish, Instructor? I'm sure you know this, but Balamb is renowned world-wide for it's very fine fish." Nell lowered her gaze to begin putting away the books and files that she had been reorganizing. Standing, she smiled at him. "I can take lunch now, if you're up to it." She smoothed her skirt and patted her hair lightly.

"Yes, I could certainly go for some fish," he replied smiling. "I've actually shyed away from fish due to the cafeteria. Most of what they do is fine, but the fish...well...I suppose it's best not to speak of it." He stood up properly, picking himself off of the counter as he nodded to Nell's last statement. "If you're able to, I'd be glad to go now."

"Of course." Nell smiled softly. "Where would you like to go? There's that little café in the harbor..." She didn't elaborate that she loved eating there. "I'm not too familiar with other places honestly. I mostly cook for myself."

Oren nodded pleasantly, "I'll trust your judgment, you're a much better cook than I am and I'm assuming a better judge of food as well." He stepped over to the door and held the door open for the young woman. "After you, miss."
