    Something is...off about Patience’s face. Or is it her body as a whole, the way she carries herself? Something’s not quite right in any event, though you can never seem to say exactly what that may be. A subtle asymmetry of her features, an odd cock of the eye or twist of the lips? A barely detectable wrongness in the set of her limbs, in the rhythm of her walk? An unlocatable strangeness: it’s all the more disquieting because that ‘something’ can’t be named, tracked down, and assigned a place. In fact, it seems to change moment to moment, depending on where she is in the room and where you are in relation to her.

    While Patience would prefer to write a letter to Alice, circumstances have conspired to render that course of action impossible.

    Namely, the reality that her cousin is blind.

    So, instead, Patience dials the number she'd received from Lyssa at court, waiting for someone to answer. Disliking the feel of the phone against her ear.

    *Ring Ring*

    Past her Albinism, Alice is naught but a doll, beautiful in her impossible perfection. Taking on a inescapable sheen of artifice, both movements and manner seem, hollow and fake. She's nothing but a marionette, limbs jerking and twisting as if pulled by invisible strings.

    Marring her unnatural beauty are her eyes, or the lack of them, vacant pits of visceral horror.

    The piercing trill of a number unknown spears the air.

    Alice's head tilts and wonder just which monster was calling her.

    "Hello?"

    There is a long moment of silence. Somehow ominous.

    ”Alice.” There’s no mistaking the Doll’s voice. “This is Patience.”

    The voice comes, and Alice's mouth opens, "Patience, Cousin." on someone other than a Haunt, on someone other then Alice a smile might have been heard behind the words, but for Alice, whatever can be heard is hollow and mocking. "Far be it to put words in your mouth, but I assume this is about what we spoke of and did not speak of when we meet?"

    Ah—the comforts of Family. Alice’s unnatural artifice, while likely unnerving to outsiders, immediately puts Patience at ease.

    ”You are correct. Would you like to visit the family property together? Continue speaking?”

    Immediate acceptance. Their Faith might divide them, but their Blood binds them.

    I''ll get the scene up ASAP!

    Patience can’t help a small, private smile.

    ”I’ll be there.”

    The line goes dead.

    Awesome!
