It just felt nice to state it out loud, the fact that they weren't carbon copies of the former rulers. While they of course were connected to them, their fate and path was not set. And that fact alone made Buffy rather happy, because she didn't want their life spoiled by reading books about things yet to come. No, they were their own people, in charge of their own destiny - at least somewhat. He spoke about getting some scrolls, and she felt a little saddened by that fact. Of course she could never ask him not to work, but was it bad she wanted to be selfish and spend time around him? He then suggested bringing them here and she nodded, smiling at him as there was nothing she wanted more, well besides touch him.

As the days passed, Buffy was slowly adjusting to the darkness around her, but it was making her weak. Some days she struggled to even get out of bed, and other times she needed Saoirse's help to get around. It felt almost humiliating to rely on her daughter like that, but Saoirse had truly grown so much since last she had seen her. Together that day they had agreed for the young hybrid to show her around, and as she did they reached the garden. It was so clear that it had once been alive and thriving, but now all that was left was decay and barren roots.

Saoirse looked up towards the study, frowning a little as she worried that her father was reading more than he was actually trying to experience this world. But she seemed happy to have her mother there, having her tell everything with Amos, though most of it saddened her a lot. She didn't want him to be hurting. In fact she had left with her father to stop him from dying off of that infection. How many years had she not been in mourning over what she had lost with him? And how much of that time had she thought of how things would be once she returned - if she ever did.
Reaching out she grabbed on to her mother, "careful," she said, guiding her around some dead thorns sticking out of the ground on black vines. "I've been meaning to look over this garden, but I can't seem to make anything grow," she sighed, shaking her head a little defeated, looking at the soil that might as well have been filled with salt so little was able to live here. "Can I be honest with you?" A silly question, she knew, but her mother nodded with a smile, "I think you and father are too couped up in getting to touch one another when clearly you are both connected to this world ... And if the balance is off, then you'll never get to be together for real."

A rustle sounded in some nearby bushes, followed by a bunch of jittery footsteps and light voices speaking to each other. Purple eyes peaked through the mess of withered branches and leaves, looking at the two strangers. “Prince…ss? Prince… Princess?” They called in small voices, a child rolling out, looking like nothing from the world they would remember. They were rather small, no bigger than garden gnomes and skinny with purple tinted grey skin. “No… is not…” it mumbled, turning on it’s little feet, trying to hurry away, though it’s foot got stuck in some of the messy long branches of the bush, wiggling and struggling to get free.

The small creature drew nearer, and Buffy's eyes widened as she looked at it. It looked practically like a child, but it's skin was different and it's beady eyes felt like it looked directly in to her soul. The small creature seemed searching, asking for royals, or was just repeating words it had heard, perhaps? It decided that they were not the ones it was searching for, but as it fell over and got tangled in some branches, Buffy couldn't help herself. Though she was weak, she walked over, kneeling down by the small gnome being. Her hands reached out, touching the dark branches that seemed to scorch at her touch, turning to ash - or so it seemed.
"There you go, my friend," she said in a gentle tone. She didn't know why she felt the need to be sweet to this creature she didn't know. Perhaps because something in her told her to be kind to it. "It's alright, you can run along ... Find who you are looking for," she said, getting up on her feet, rustling the branch she had touched and as the ash fell away there seemed to be a fresh growing branch beneath.

The creature seemed scared as the light drew nearer, fighting to get free despite how friendly Buffy seemed. The branches were burned and the creature’s wide eyes widened even further in surprise. It muttered ancient words, the bushes answering with their own mutters and words. More purple eyes appeared, staring through the branches, this time in search of something or rather this person that had freed the creature. They all kept their eyes on Buffy as the creature got up and scuttered as fast as it could.

"There you go, little fella," she spoke sweetly, watching as the small creature scurried off in a hurry. She didn't blame it. Everything probably looked big and scary when you were that size. Taking a few steps back, rejoining Saoirse, she noticed the purple eyes that were now peaking out at her. Taken aback she stood still for a while before she decided the best option was to sit down in the dead grass. "It's quite alright," she told them, looking at the bushes as she smiled softly. Why was she so trusting of her own instincts? Perhaps because it had lead her down this road already. "You don't have to be scared of us, right Saoirse?" she smiled, looking up at her daughter that was a bit more weary, but she ended up sitting down next to her mother regardless. Maybe it would help them not feel like they were being towered over. "My name is Buffy ... Who are you guys?"

The light sat down and the eyes were just watching her, the little fella was running off. But then a voice called from the bush, making it turn and run right back, stopping in front of the light as it looked up at her. Her question made the eyes move around looking at each other, but it was the little creature that spoke. “Me, Eek.” It said in ancient tongue, pulling a smaller creature out of the bush by the back of it’s neck. It dropped the smaller creature and pointed. “Mir.” It named it. More creatures came out, in all small sizes and forms, some humanoid, some obscure, all just with purple eyes that were glowing.

Buffy looked at the small creatures, then at the one she had saved that seemed to hurry right back to her to introduce itself. Eek. And the other small being was Mir? She just smiled, feeling like she was actually quite amused by these small beings that now stood around her as she sat here on the ground. Her daughter seemed more weary, but in the end Saoirse had to go handle some of her chores and work. Buffy stayed in the garden, smiling at the small creatures. "It is so very nice to meet all of you," she said, holding her hand out for them to inspect and touch. She was the light of this world, but it was so clear how weak she was surrounded by all this darkness. "How long have you been hiding here?" she asked, not sure if they had a concept of time.
