The background sounded quite familiar to Pandora. There was the crashing of water and the smell of salt in the air. Her feet stung something terrible as she walked, sand making its way into her wounds. It was, she was sure, a beach of some sort. However, there was also a certain quietness to it all. She had come to several beaches in her time and none of them were quite. The sound of people could often be heard. If people could not be heard, then animals were often nearby. It was all rather peculiar. She could not imagine why nobody would wish to see them.

This thought disappeared at the sound of shuffling. Briefly, she came to a pause. Curious, the ancient woman began to follow after the noise. "Hello?" She received no answer, but the sound did not disappear. Brow furrowing, she walked after it, coming to a pause as her feet touched water. A grimace came to her face, the feeling quite unpleasant. Though, it was a bit troublesome. Had she accidentally walked into the ocean? Groping about, her hand touched a hard surface. Funny...that had certainly not been there before. Where had she wandered off to? Someone's home?

"Erm, hello?" A large serpent-like creature moved forward, eying Pandora. She paused. "Someone is there, yes?"

Serendipity had pulled Nick away from a perfectly nice day strolling around in Paris, and deposited him unceremoniously on some kind of a beach. There was that moment - a split second, more accurately - of disorientation as his inner mechanics adjusted his balance, and his sense of time and time zones, before he looked around, searching for the reason of his sudden arrival.

>>"Erm, hello? Someone is there, yes?"

It was not difficult to spot movement on the deserted beach. Nick tilted his head as he saw the figure of a young woman, a girl, really, standing a little confused... and the serpent-like shape dangerously close to her. Her movements and her question spoke to the same thing, although it took Nick a few (4.5) seconds to process the information.
The girl was likely blind.

"Miss." he said calmly, shifting his position as he kept his eyes on the snake "I realize that you have no reason to trust me, but I would suggest that you should take a few steps backwards in a calm and collected manner, for the sake of your own safety."

The sea monster shifted, its attention briefly shifting to the new arrival. Tongue flicking, it peered between the two, seeming to be uncertain as to who to strike first. The female had a pleasant enough sent but there was something peculiar about the new arrival. For a moment, it hesitated.

Pandora blinked, her attention shifting to the sudden voice that permeated through the area. From the sound of it, she was not, as she had feared, somewhere enclosed. Perhaps she had just touched a rock then? She pondered the question, before her attention was fully captured by what the voce was saying. Step away? Her gaze paused, spotting the soul of the serpent. "Why?" she asked, hands within the air, "What is by me?"

The serpent paused, and Nicked moved slowly to the side; if the monster wanted to keep an eye on them, it would have to choose. Or keep moving its head. It seemed to be confused for a moment. So did the girl.

>>"Why? What is by me?"

"It appears to be a rather large serpent." Nick informed her, trying to modulate his voice so that it was light and not alarming. If she bolted, she might run straight into the creature. Nick lifted his walking cane, holding the handle in case he needed to draw his sword. He clicked it against his hand, making a little sound that he hoped would draw the serpent's attention.

"Back away slowly and to your right. Otherwise you would have to wade in the water."

Pandora froze, retracting her hand. Normally, she did not care too much if she was near something potentially dangerous. However, the mention of a large serpent was...vague. Was she near a monster? She knew well enough from the stories that they could be quite dangerous.

"O-Oh," she said. Trying to listen to the unknown voice, she slowly began to back away, wincing slightly as she did so.

The serpent's attention shifted to Nick, a loud hiss emitting from its mouth. Menacingly, it began to approach him.

The girl finally seemed to realize the danger she was in. Nick could see the shift in her face and posture as she started to back away, out of the corner of his eye. He kept his attention on the snake, however; now that it turned to face him, it did look rather large and imposing. Nick wondered if there was some truth to legends about serpents hypnotizing their prey. Of course he would not know - he was a mechanical creature, and the girl was blind.

"En garde, beast" Nick said, pointing his cane-sword at the serpent as he took on a fencing pose. He was not certain whether he could defeat the monster with a blade or not, but as long as the girl got to a safe distance, his mission stood a chance of being successful.

Perhaps one of the few good things that Pandora could claim there to exist about her blindness was the enhancement of the rest of her senses. It did not always help her too much, mainly because she was often in unfamiliar territory. However, there was the rare moment where it came in handy. For instance, at this moment she could tell well enough that she was relatively free to escape.

Except that sounded absolutely dreadful. She did hate the sound of leaving whoever this man was all alone against a giant beast! So, she did the only thing she could much think of and attempted to grab the man to drag him along with her.

The serpent raised its head in a slowly swaying motion. Nick stood his ground, holding his blade steady. He was not sure if it was natural for the beast to move like that, or if it was attempting to bait him into doing something unwise. The girl backed away, and Nick made a tentative stab in the serpent's direction, hoping it would back away...

The girl suddenly grabbed him, trying to pull him along. Nick made a surprised sound; the moment his balance was off, the snake lounged for him. Fangs made a crunching sound on his leg, and Nick could see the surprised shudder run down the creature's body as it found something other than living flesh. He stabbed down, making a deep wound through the scales. The serpent let go and slithered off into the underbrush nearby.

"That was not wise" Nick noted, putting his blade away and turning to the girl "I was doing perfectly fine."

It was difficult to tell whether everything was alright. The stranger had said that there was a large serpent. From what Pandora could hear, it was not completely quiet. There was the faint noise of a hiss. However, true to its nature, the creature was quite quiet. This only changed when she attempted to drag the stranger away. Everything sounded peculiar and unknown.

It was only once everything was quiet that that things seemed to be fine.

She blinked as the stranger spoke. For a moment, she found herself inclined to ask him why, but the answer was given before she could ask. A frown formed across her face. "But," she said lightly, "It was a large snake. You could have gotten hurt- eaten. It would have been better to not fight."

The young lady frowned at his claim. Nick read that facial expression as one of frustration; she was clearly trying to help by pulling him away from danger, even though he was the one that was supposed to be protecting her. That signaled that she was a caring person. Nick felt like he owed her an explanation of the facts. He was not sure how long Serendipity would allow him to stay in her company, but if he happened to walk into some other danger, it was good to clear some things up, to prevent future interference.

>>"But... It was a large snake. You could have gotten hurt- eaten. It would have been better to not fight."

"I was summoned here to be of assistance" Nick explained "That was best done by fighting the beast off. And I am uniquely qualified to do so with minimal injuries. You see, I am not made of flesh. I have been created to withstand injuries that would be severe for humans."

Pandora's brow furrowed nd she found herself confused. The fact that he was not, as he had stated, made of flesh made sense considering that she could not see anything of the man. However, she was not entirely sure she understood how he had gotten here. "Summoned?" she echoed, "How? I did not summon you." Or, she was quite sure that she had not. She had not asked for any help after all.

Though, now that she thought about it, they were probably still in danger, yes? They had not run too far off and for all she knew the serpent might come back. "That does not mean that you should not take care of yourself," she scolded, "What if the serpent comes back. You are..." She paused. "Well, I imagine that you are big enough for it to have swallowed whole."

>>"Summoned? How? I did not summon you."

"Serendipity" Nick answered "... for lack of a better term. I tend to show up whenever I'm needed."

>>"That does not mean that you should not take care of yourself. What if the serpent comes back. You are... Well, I imagine that you are big enough for it to have swallowed whole."

"Indeed. Except, I am armed, and capable of fighting." Nick stated, feeling a sudden necessity to state his capabilities "But you are correct, we should probably relocate to a more secure place. Where... how did you come here? Is there a place you would like me to escort you to?"

Nick glanced around, surveying the beach and the nearby woods, and then realized that the girl was probably disoriented. Sheathing his blade and stepping closer, he carefully raised his elbow to her arm, in case she wanted to hold on for guidance.

"Nicholas Olivier Time. At your service, ma'am. What name may I call you?"

Pandora's brow furrowed, before the confusion cleared away as the strange man began to explain."Oh," she said, "I suppose that makes sense. I did need help after all."

His explanation made sense, but it seemed far more logical to avoid trouble than to fight it in her mind. "How?" she echoed, "I walked here, of course. That is generally how I travel. There might be someplace safer we can walk to."

Somewhat wobbly on her feet, Pandora grasp Nick's elbow for support. Her brow furrowed. "You have a peculiar name," she said bluntly, "I am Pandora."

The girl seemed to take his explanation in without further questions. Nick was grateful for that. There was a logic to the workings of Serendipity, as well as a method to its randomness, but it usually took way too much time to explain it all to people unfamiliar with magic or mechanics... and there was still a beast lurking somewhere nearby.

>>"How? I walked here, of course. That is generally how I travel. There might be someplace safer we can walk to."

She took his elbow, and Nick made sure they were properly adjusted before he began to walk, leading her away from the scene and hoping to head towards a more secure, or at least more defensible, location. The beach seemed somewhat desolate; if she had indeed walked there, she had to have been walking for quite a long time.

>>"You have a peculiar name. I am Pandora."

"An honor to meet you" Nick nodded politely, before something occurred to him "Your own is fairly unique as well. Is it merely a coincidence, or do you bear a relation to... Greek ancestry, perhaps?"

As they began to walk, Pandora only just remember the pain that she had originally been feeling before she had become distracted by the serpent. Pain shot through her feet, causing a grimace to spread across her face. Carefully, she made sure to keep her pace slow, not wishing to cause too much damage to her already damaged feet by being careless. It was, in her opinion, a bit difficult to do when she had to match her companion's pace as well.

Her brow furrowed at the turn of phrase the clockwork man used. While his language was not unusual, the manner in which he spoke to her was one she was one she was not used to hearing. "Greek ancestry?" She did not understand what he meant. "I am the only Pandora I know. The Gods gave me my name."
