Snow gave an irritated sigh, shooting dark looks at the time gate, she couldn’t believe that Noel had convinced Stephen to leave her here to ‘keep an eye on things.’ as if her staying behind would effect anything! The flan were still around and it had been hours!
She got up and approached, the gate fully intending to just jump through and hope she bumped into them, when a noise from the near by trees caught her attention, she quickly turned towards the general area of the noise getting ready to defend herself if need be.
At the sound of a woman’s voice, Balthier turned. The trees made it somewhat difficult to tell which direction it was coming from, but he eventually found his way into a clearing with a time gate spinning and whining softly. Now that was a familiar scene, something he had seen on his travels many, many times. A young girl stood in front of it, looking decidedly huffy, but he would take his chances with conversation, and hopefully it would turn out alright.
"Pardon me, fair lady, I did not mean to alarm you. Perhaps you could inform me of my whereabouts?"
