Sarah had nowhere specifically in mind as she boarded a train. There was just something terribly romantic about the idea of a train ride, that she spontaneously decided to get on one and ride to an unknown destiny. Her sense of adventure sparked.
She chose a seat next to a pleasant looking young lady in her age range. Who knows, perhaps she would strike up a friendship on this voyage. It wouldn’t be the first time she made friends along the way.
Smiling cordially, she returned the greeting. “Hi, Victoria. I’m Sarah.” She placed her hand in the others to shake warmly. “Oh, I’m not exactly sure, I suppose I am if that’s where this train goes. I really hadn’t planned it out, to be perfectly honest. Is there anything worthwhile in Collinsport that would warrant a visit? Is it your hometown?”
It was going smoothly so far, and Victoria was proud of herself for managing to keep up this act for so long. “I’m completely new to the town, I’ve never been. Originally I’m from New York, but I’ve recently had the opportunity to become a governess for David Collins. The family who runs the town. I’m looking forward to meeting him, from what his aunt told me, he seems like a pleasant boy. Where are you from, Sarah?”
"I’m also originally from New York, but not the city. I ended up moving to Florida, a little town called ‘Suburbia’, which lives up to its name." She laughed, wishing the other could see the town so would know what she was talking about. So full of busybodies and all the houses painted in pastels, perfectly manicured lawns.
"You are going to be a governess? Do you have much experience watching children? I feel like I practically raised my baby brother. At one point in time it seemed like such a horrible chore to watch him, but then it all changed and I loved spending time with him. I realized how much I loved him, he really is such a great kid. I hope David is, as well. Hopefully he won’t be too spoiled, seeing as how his family sounds quite wealthy."
"New York is highly overrated in my opinion. It’s nice to visit, but I would feel much more at ease in a smaller town. The peace would be calming." She grinned, listening as Sarah asked her a variety of questions about her work. "I don’t have much experience with children, but I am willing to learn. A friend recommended this job to me, and I thought that I might as well take it. I enjoy new experiences, and didn’t have a sibling growing up."
The thought of David being spoiled hadn’t crossed Victoria’s mind yet and she became worried that he would be egotistical. If so, Vicky was good at looking past flaws and keeping an open mind.
"If he is, then perhaps I could talk some sense into him. Money certainly isn’t everything, he should be glad to have such a family who cares about him enough to hire a governess."
"Yes, it will be. I can’t even remember the last time I’ve had a proper conversation with a stranger, or anyone really. You could say that my life was a bit lonely. That’s why I was running away."
The man was very interesting, but she was not entirely sure if she trusted him. After all, a stranger was still a stranger and even if they were now on a first name basis, Maggie felt slightly uncomfortable.
Thomas gave her another smile. He hadn’t missed that she said she was running away, but he wasn’t about to press her for information. Everyone had their secrets and he was no different.
"Well," he motioned ahead of them at the small coffee shop that they had been walking towards. "I’m not sure I’ll be the best person or stranger to have a conversation with, but I can certainly try. You still up for that warm drink?"
"It’s much colder than I would’ve imagined, a warm beverage sounds wonderful." She smiled as they approached the coffee shop and was glad that they would finally be able to get some shelter. The rain had almost stopped, but Maggie’s clothes were still wet from the previous storm that had occurred. "May you please order me a hot chocolate? I don’t drink coffee." She hadn’t had the beverage ever since she was a child, and she was excited to taste it again.
((I just now read the news about the group shutting down and I would just like to say what an honor it was to be part of it. Being surrounded by such talented roleplayers is always a remarkable experience in a group and the mods were wonderful. I fully support the decision though to close it, and feel like the mods should do whatever makes them feel happiest. Life can be busy and stressful, but just thank you again for the opportunity.
Lots of love,
The Carolyn and Victoria Mun.))
"Listen you cunt!" She snarled, crossing her arms and giving the stranger a menacing glare. "I don’t care about why the hell you’re here, but I’m going to fuck you over if you don’t leave! I might have to call my Big Daddy."
