Although major cities were not exactly Ninianne's favorite sort of place to be, they were often exactly where she wound up spending a good deal of her time. In her immortal life she had rather quickly learned that by simple probability, where more people gathered there was going to be more chance of injustice. Which of course, meant more work for Ninianne to attend to. The amount of work though was not really the source of the fae's distaste for cities. Certainly she would prefer if everyone would get along without trying to steal, cheat, or give into all manner of corruption, but so long as there was work to do she was not one to shy away from it. No, what put her off from cities was the odd way that they could somehow seem simultaneously huge and yet not big enough for the sheer amount of people. And the vast majority these days tended not to believe in old stories and legends, meaning it was near impossible to get anywhere without that awful feeling of being walked through.

She did her best to weave through the crowds but that disconcerting feeling of being walked through still cropped up here and there. But Ninianne tried to distract herself from the inconvenience by remaining focused on her duties. And it was just as she was approaching a small park area that the Guardian noticed something amiss.

C'mon, the place is abandoned- no one's gonna care if we go take a look around. Blue eyes landed on a pair of girls standing by the fence that surrounded the park. They looked to be close to the same age, somewhere around ten or so years old. The speaker was evidently trying to convince the other girl, a thin child with dark blonde hair and a heart shaped face, to go in somewhere they likely were not supposed to be. And it's not like it's old enough to be falling apart or anything dangerous.

Ninianne frowned, although such childish mischief as sneaking into abandoned buildings was not exactly a great injustice at first glance she could sense that something was decidedly off about the proposal. Either the speaker did in fact know that there was something dangerous in the place or she had intentions to do more than just look around once in there. Ninianne made her way a little nearer to the pair, trying to assess the situation. Both girls were young enough that they might believe in the fae beings of stories or perhaps even in the stories of King Arthur. So it was possible that they would see her but it was just as possible that one or both considered themselves too grown up for fairy tales and have lost their belief already. She could work with either case but it would call for different approaches, and with memories of failing to account for a dragoness attorney being in a court room still fresh in her mind she did not want to begin with the wrong one. So instead she kept a slight distance, her clothes would make it a little difficult to pass as just another mortal in the park but hopefully if the two were caught up in their conversation they wouldn't notice her just yet.

Looking closely at the pair Ninianne thought there was something vaguely familiar about the girl who seemed less than eager to go to the abandoned place. But she could not quite place where or when she might have seen her before. And for now, it was the one trying to convince her that Ninianne really needed to deal with.

"You know what you're planning to do is wrong," Ninianne spoke quietly, sending her influence to effect the girl. If either of them believed enough they might actually hear the words but she hoped that if that was the case her voice was quiet enough to simply mingle with the general hum of noise that tended to fill city streets. Her magic however, would ensure that the message carried through to the mischief maker regardless. "Forget the whole idea and stop trying to get others to cause trouble."

Hmmmmmnnnn…she didn’t like this. Pat had a squirmy sort of feeling in her tummy as she stood staring up at a spooky looking building that loomed just on the other side of the fence that was probably up for a very good reason. Mostly to keep people out…because it probably was dangerous. Even if it wasn’t…well, it was still pretty scary looking. And dark. Pat didn’t much like the dark anymore. Bad things lived there. What if they lived here, too?

A small fist tightened on the strap of her backpack, bony knuckles turning all white and poofed looking, and Pat turned her head to frown at the other girl. “I don’t think we should, Lilah. It’s…creepy.” It made her sound like a fraidy cat, she knew, but she didn’t care. Mostly because she was afraid. A lot more than she used to be, that was for sure. And she couldn’t really talk to anyone about it; she didn’t want her siblings to worry more than they already did and her friends wouldn’t believe her. She didn’t have friends that good.

’Cept Lilah. Or so she had thought, anyway. She was new, Lilah, and for some reason she had picked Pat to be her new best friend. Which had, honestly, kinda excited the thin girl at the time, especially since Lilah seemed so nice and smart and was super pretty…and didn’t make Pat’s tummy do that sour grumble sort of thing it did when she sensed someone was lying. She’d been like a real, actual friend. And then, all of a sudden, something had changed and now Pat was trying not to tremble outside a scary place with a girl who just didn’t quite feel like the person she’d gotten to know.

A voice sounded very nearby, gentle but scolding, and relief visibly washed over Pat. Thank goodness. Grownups. Grownups could talk Lilah out of this very bad idea and then she wouldn’t have to go inside that creepy building. Which she would have, she knew, if she had failed to talk the other girl out of it. ‘Cause she might have been scared, but that didn’t mean she would let a friend go do something dangerous all alone. Even if that friend was being…very, very weird. Glancing over her shoulder, she found the speaker, offering the lady a warm smile, tugging on her friend’s arm. “She’s right, Lilah. We should go. There’s probably rats and things in there, anyway.”

…It was the things that had her worried…

Better a bitter truth than a sweet lie

As Ninianne spoke the girl that was reluctant to go into the closed down building actually turned and smiled, seeming to latch onto her words to try and make her companion see sense. At her friend's words the other girl, Lilah she thought her friend had called her, glanced around as well. Ninianne stepped forward, giving the blonde haired girl a reassuring smile in return. She did not want to go along with her friend's plan that was clear. Of course, peer pressure was not always easy to resist, especially if the girls were close. But hopefully she could help to avoid any trouble for either of them. She watched watched Lilah carefully, relieved to see her gaze snap to focus on Ninianne at the movement. So they could both see her. Good, that tended to make things easier since it allowed her to discuss whatever the issue was directly instead of just acting as the voice at the back of their mind. And while she had learned to manage using her influence well enough even when invisible over the years of magic and legend balancing between one who could see her and one who could not was a far greater challenge- at least while avoiding one thinking the other to be insane.

"Who are you?" Lilah asked, her eyes narrowing in suspicion. No doubt Ninianne was quite the odd sight, in appearance she was clearly older than the girls and standing straight, her bearing poised and giving off presence that had once made kings welcome her to their halls with respect and seriously consider whatever council she gave. To these girls it might make her seem a grown up, one whom they should listen to, even if physically she was still but fifteen. What they would make of her long white gown, loose sleeves with extra fabric trailing behind and trimmed with embroidered blue patterns she was not sure. Whether they would recognize her as a being of the stories they did evidently believe in or think her just a girl in costume.

"My name is Ninianne Tamesis," she replied. "Now, you know it isn't fair to pressure your friend into doing something you know is wrong." Ninianne added, drawing on her influence once again.

Lilah frowned, fidgeting a little. "Just wanted some adventure," she murmured guiltily. "But, are you gonna tattle on us if we do go in?"

"I'm certainly not going to sit by and do nothing while two children go somewhere they could get hurt." She replied firmly. Of course the Guardian was not really in any position to "tattle" on them, she would be hard pressed to find an adult that could actually talk to her and there was no guarantee telling another child would accomplish anything. More likely Ninianne would have to either leave some sign that would get an adult's attention or go in and keep an eye on them herself- probably a bit of both. "Now," she added, glancing between the two girls, "I'm sure there are better things for you to do than go looking for trouble like that place." She added.
