    Softly shimmering gold flakes catch the light whenever she moves, delicate gilded and diamond scales extenuate the luminescent sapphires that are her eyes. The ocean lives in Sera's eyes, perfectly cut sapphires, gleam in the light. Deeper shades always shifting like the tide. The scales trail up to her temples and forehead. Her hair reaches down her back, brushing the back of her knees, spun silver and gold. Very fine diamond dust falls loose from her hair when she moves, reflecting rainbows from the light. The scales on her hands are dulled by the simple fact that her hands are translucent.

    Cherry blossoms gilded in gold bloom from her hair, tumbling down as a warm rejuvenating spring breeze gently kisses the air with the scent of wildflowers and honey. The sound of birds singing can be heard as the wildflowers grow and bloom in vibrant colors where she walks, swaying and lively in the breeze.

    Garden Grounds was closed for the night. Well, closed for anyone except Reed, who Sera had invited for some coffee.

    Inside the coffee shop smelled of a pleasant mixture of coffee, various teas and flowers. The ones that hung gently from the ceiling were live, with tiny fairy lights hidden within them. Giving the customer the feeling of looking into the night sky through fresh flowers.

    There was fall décor still in place, though the Halloween decorations were gone. But a few pumpkins remained, as did some fake and fresh leaves on the floor and on the tables. Double French doors appeared to lead to an outdoor patio.

    The Spring Queen was behind the counter, apparently going over some paper work and photos. Perhaps décor ideas for the upcoming holiday season? She was dressed for the holiday in an off the shoulder deep red sweater and white dress pants. Her long golden and silver hair draped down her back, gently grazing the floor.

    Mask
    Reed is by all accounts an unremarkable guy. Somewhere north of 30 and south of 40. He stands about 5’10’’ with a slight hunch. Mud brown eyes, curly brown hair worn on the longer side with unkept mutton chops. His face is lined from time out in the sun and his fingernails have dirt under them. He’s typically in work clothes and boots and it’s clear his occupation keeps him outside. He can often be seen wearing a broad-brimmed straw hat that has definitely seen better days.

    Mien
    To those that can truly see him, Reed has skin the color of mud. A deep, rich brown. His pupil-less eyes are the same color. Even his teeth are brown. His face is deeply lined. Maybe scarred? His ears are pointed and his fingers are long and knobby. He is painfully thin with a pronounced hunch to his back and a pot-belly. His bulbous head is bald save for a thin layer of green moss. His mantle manifests as an added clarity, as if you are viewing him on a crisp, clear winter day.

    This time of year is hard for Reed. The holidays. Thanksgiving and Christmas. Too many memories. Too many happy families on the streets and in the stores. It is appropriate, however, that things should be this hard, given the fact that it's almost his season: winter. The time of sorrow and cold, the time of secrecy, hidden things, and apparent (only apparent) death.

    Wonder what Elsie and the kids are doing for Christmas? He thinks as he approaches Garden Grounds. And it's a bad thought. One that isn't dispelled as he enters the coffee shop, despite its pleasant decor, pleasant smell, and pleasant proprietor. It puts a frown on his face as he walks through the door.

    For once, he hasn't hardened his mask. The Garden Gnome is on full display. He's even managed to shower and put on some decent clothes: a black cable knit sweater, too big on his spindly form, and some grey jeans. Work boots as always, though.

    Even more surprising: he doesn't have his flask, though he's been drinking. You can smell it on him.

    "Evening," he greets the Spring Queen, approaching the counter, looking a little uncomfortable. "What're you working on there?" Might as well play it casual as he's got no idea why this goddess has invited him here tonight.

    Mantle: Reed's mantle manifests as an added clarity, as if you are viewing him on a crisp, clear winter day. There's the occasional snowflake.

    Now that was something she wasn’t used to.

    Someone frowning when they entered the coffee shop. And to be honest, it threw her off as her mind raced trying to figure out what she did or what wasn’t up to par.

    She gives no indication of smelling the liquor on him. Not her place. Instead, her smile is warm and inviting.

    “Hi Reed! Evening, thanks for coming over!” greets the Nix. “Oh, it’s the wonderful world of paperwork that goes along with owning a business. Have to account for everything. Really annoying if you ask me.” A slight roll of sapphires. “Plus, some décor I’m thinking of adding more towards Christmas, I try and not add it until after Thanksgiving.” Two separate holidays that each deserved their own décor space. Folders and papers were piled and put off to the side as she shifts her focus to him.

    “Can I get you some coffee? Or tea?”
    she offers, a translucent hand picking up her own cup. “But if you don’t want anything, that’s fine.” Nope, no pressure at all. She just naturally offered whenever someone came in, seeking to take care of them.

    She smiles at him and Reed feels all goofy. Like there's some sort of delay between his brain and his body. It's not something he's used to, being treated so nicely by such a beautiful woman.

    Still, he manages to compose himself and replies: "Oh I get it, though most of my business is under the table. Independent contractor and all that. Still, you've got to keep good records so Uncle Sam doesn't think you're hiding something..." Though Reed does. Plenty of his income goes completely unreported.

    The Garden Gnome glances around the space. "What are you thinking then? Lights? A tree? Tinsel?" It's depressing to Reed. Reminds him of family. Better times.

    "Coffee's good, if you don't mind. Black." A pause. "So how long've you had the place?"

    Nodding, “An independent contractor? I think I remember hearing you did gardening right?” she hoped she heard right. If not, well, that was that. “Have to confess, I cannot garden or grow anything to save my life.” She says with a smirk and laugh.

    “But you’re right, have to keep good records. I just wish I had known opening a business would be so much paperwork!” it was the one downside to the coffee shop.

    Looking around as well, “I like to keep things festive, but not in your face festive, if that makes any sense. Maybe some poinsettias, some real wreaths, and maybe some knickknacks here and there. Think I have the lights covered.” She says with another laugh, this one with a hint of music to it. “Though I could take some down and add a few that are colored.” Maybe.

    She gets the coffee, setting it in front of him, “Any cookies or muffins to go with it?” she asks before picking up her mug, and motions to the tables, “Lets sit.” Cause no one likes to stand all night.

    “Umm, I’ve had it for almost two years actually. Which makes me wonder where the time went!” wow, had it been that long already?

    Turning the conversation, “Are you settling in ok?” she asks, genuine in her question, “I know it can sometimes be hard to get used to a new city and Freehold.”
