GIFT ITEMS

It was a large picnic hamper, packed with all sorts. There was a thick, warm quilt in shades of green, with black stitching and a black edging to it and a thick knitted woollen blanket (masterwork quality). Also, laying on the top of the hamper were beautifully made clothes, masterwork quality. They consisted of
  • 2 x thick wool tunics (jumpers) (one green, one black)
  • 2 x sets of hat, scarf & two pairs of gloves - one thin but thermal fingerless pair, one full pair to put over the fingerless ones (one green, one black)
  • 1 x thick wool coat (black)
Underneath the clothing lay a hamper of food. The food was made by someone with a skill which surpassed the norm by quite a way (legendary, in fact), and every bit of care and attention that she could give to these products, had been. This included:
  • 1 x jar of sweet onion relish
  • 1 x jar of spiced beetroot pickle
  • 1 x jar of plum and apricot chutney
  • 1 x jar of blood orange marmalade
  • 1 x rich fruit sponge
  • 1 x sticky toffee pudding
  • 1 x sweet lemon puddding
  • 1 x rich cocoa pudding
  • A selection of bread: Rich date and walnut loaf, a cranberry and nut swirl, four cheese rolls and then a small stick of sundried tomato and basil
  • One box of small candies and sweets
  • One box of cakes and sweet pastries. Those cakes included light puff pastry with caremalised apples, apparently plain cakes which oozed with flavour when bitten into and meringues dipped in chocolate.

When she had picked up the gifts, she had been pleased that they were so well-considered and individual. What had delighted her was the thought and time that the very earnest young woman had taken in creating them. She had left with the picnic hamper in hand to seek out Atashi in hopes that these would bring as much pleasure as they were intended to.

She appeared before Atashi in the same fashion as she appeared before others - in an elusive and unseen fashion. Saoire has a habit of just appearing from behind something tall that might have hidden her form. Only the scent of juniper and warm spices hinted at her coming. When she stepped from behind her hiding place, a cool mist seemed to build up around her as if she were some ghost.

“Atashi, I have gifts for you. I certainly hope you enjoy them a lot of thought and care were put into them,” Saoire stated sweetly, putting the large picnic hamper down on the table next to him. Then, she handed him a letter, as had been given to her and she smiled. "This is for you, from the individual who created these for you/"

As Atashi looked down at the envelope in his hands, a small tinkling sound caught his attention. When he looked back up, he would only find a few flakes of snow and a bit of mist where Saoire had stood.

I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be then me.
