As We Last Left widgetRachael is contemplating Gaelin’s statements when the bird flies in and startles the young lady from across the pond. “Gaelin behind you!” Rachel steps back (actually more of a pivot), and the next thing Gaelin knows she’s fisting a small handgun, bringing it to bear on the hawk. Gaelin knew not where the weapon came from and didn’t even register her drawing it. As quickly as his fear for his avian companion-and cane rose, they fell! Rachael immediately recognized the bird, dropping the pistol to her right side, and catching the flowers with her left arm. Leaning her back against the wall she takes a deep breath, exhales, then glances at Gaelin with a mixed look of embarrassment, shock and even amusement. “Good lord!” she exclaims wiping her brow with the back of her right hand as it still fisted the pistol. Stepping towards Gaelin and setting the pistol on a nearby counter top in transit, Raechel took in the olfactory of the flowers…The glowing smile miss Crosby now wore was well worth the previous moment! “Lillies! They’re wonderful! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the kind thought Gaelin!” For maybe the first time in his remembrance, Gaelin saw Rachael as a normal lady much like any other, instead of the armed, unusually stunning soul trapped in a dark world that she was.   The apparent tragedy of fate rarely permitting this beauty such joyful moments was somewhat buffered by one of the most radiantly attractive smiles Gaelin had ever seen-and certainly the first time he had ever seen her in such good spirits. “Ingratiated!” Rachael replied after receiving his follow up kiss to her hand. Rachael was even blushing a bit now too! “Well…I’m not supposed to handle these yet due to my condition but, I’ll make an exception in this case! It was a pllllleasure having you, and take care of yourself Gaelin! We’ll chat soon. Cheerio!” With that Rachael returns to her studies.
