Spirits in Flight
Her head snaps around at Greg’s enthusiastic words and Talula quickly closes in on the glass case. “Ooooh, they make their’s so realistic, look at the coloring they’ve done!”
She lifts her head up to look across the counter top at the proprietor and gives the young man a shy wave. “Excuse me, but could I please get some of your excellent looking marzipan?” They exchange a quick conversation and before too long, she’s happily clutching a bag with four pieces in it. “I got a couple of extras na’ha’ne, so we can share since I haven’t had some in a few weeks!”
"Really impressive… Let’s buy one of each type!" he suggested, his eyes already landing on the thick pears made of marzipan. Just those were enough to make his mouth water, feeling hungry again all of the suffen.
Once they had the bag with the marzipan pieces, Greg was beaming in delight. “Can I have the pear? I think it’s the one I like the most…” he please, giving her puppy eyes before he remembered something important. “This place was an information stall as well, right? Perhaps we should ask here about what places can be visited, and things we can do while we’re here.”
Slapping her forehead with the palm of her hand, Talula rolls her eyes as she huffs, “Oh my gosh! I forgot everything else once I saw this scrumptious looking candy! I am so sorry, you can punish me later”, she offers with a coy wink of her eye.
She turns back around and walks up to the counter again and sheepishly asks, “Pardon me but I forgot to ask, we’re tourists and were wondering if you could tell us a bit about the sights we can see while we’re visiting?”
The young man smiles as a short laugh rolls from him, then he reaches under the counter and pulls out a guide map. After explaining in brief detail, she nods her head then returns to her husband’s side. “This should help us in deciding what we want to do, all the major tourist sites are clearly marked on this map!”
