    @John Uskglass

    January 10th
    Ever since she started living in Silverwood, Chise had her fair share of encounters with people who ended up getting injured in some way or another. Brian, the man during the Samhain celebration, Carol... they all ended up needing help, but all Chise could really do was offer healing potions that she luckily had on hand. There was always a fear deep down that one day she wouldn't have one of those right when she needed it the most, so she decided to take a preventive measure.

    And that was asking John to teach her healing magic, the first time she would ever asked for something in particular to be taught to her since she became his apprentice. It was something that had been knocking in her head for some time now, but today she finally decided to make that request. Since it was still early, she did her whole morning routine of showering and changing to an outfit more appropriate for the lower temperature before joining John at the lobby. Fortunately, he didn't happen to pick a day where he decided to just vanish without a trace.

    "John... can I ask you something?" She began approaching him, hoping that she wasn't interrupting anything.

    Pandora was a place unlike Faerie, unlike England, unlike any other world he knew. That much John had gathered from his first day in this strange world, cut off from all others. Though to those unfamiliar with him the idea may have seemed preposterous, The Raven King knew the ways if this world limited his magic. How much he could not say, but then, he had yet to test the furthest limits if his abilities.

    He'd gathered an odd assortment of items to himself that morning. Sitting cross legged on the floor, set by his side were a candlestick and what might have once been a wedding band, though the ring was tarnished now with age, scratched and nicked and dented. Still, it would serve it's purpose, it's meaning was still there after all. It would make a good enough Handsel regardless. In between his fingers he absentmindedly spun a peacock feather.

    There came then the sound of footsteps. John payed little mind to it at first, but as Chise stepped into his line of vision, he glanced up. "You are standing on the Path." He murmured. He gestured with the feather for her to move just to the side a bit. "What was it that you needed?"

    The scene Chise ended up coming across was something she didn't quite understand. She didn't doubt there was some purpose behind it, but it was still strange to see John sitting cross-legged with a candlestick next to him and... a wedding ring? Whatever he was doing, Chise didn't know what it was, only that she was apparently on the way.

    "S-Sorry." She moved to the side as instructed. It looked like she had chosen a bad time to talk to him after all. "Um... I can leave it for later, if you're busy."

    It was something they could at any other time, so there wasn't really any urgency to it. On the other side of the coin, she didn't know if what John was doing was really important or not, so she thought she might as well play it safe.

    "No." He shook his head. Setting the feather to the ground beside him, he turned towards her, raising a questioning brow. She was stuttering, seemed nervous. She did tend towards the meek, unfortunately. Shaking his head, John sighed and rose to his feet. "I have not even begun yet." He assured her as he strode towards her. 'Later,' He would be busy, later -- if all worked out properly -- he would be entertaining the summoned spirit of a dead woman. All considered, her timing could not have been better.

    "You should not expect me to turn you into a frog for daring to ask something of me." He drawled. "Now, what is it?"

    So he hadn't started yet, he was only in the process of beginning whatever it was that he was trying to do. Chise was still interrupting, but at least she didn't ruin his work with an untimely arrival. He wanted to know what she wanted, but Chise couldn't help but be a little distracted by one of the things he said.

    "You can do that?" She asked, mostly out of curiosity and without any indication of feeling actually threatened by something of that kind.

    All things considered turning a person into an animal would probably be among the simpler things John could do, compared to what she had seen since they met. Was there anything he couldn't do, Chise always wondered. The barrier magic he used during Samhain seemed to take a toll on him, so clearly even someone as powerful as him had his limits, but in light of everything he could do... His magic seemed truly boundless.

    Chise shook her head as if to rid herself of that train of thought. "I... I wanted to request that you taught me how to use healing magic. I've seen many people get hurt since I started living here and while I usually have healing potions with me, I don't want to take the risk of not having one in a time of need. That's all."

    She asked that question a lot, didn't she? More yet, for forms of magic that, to him, seemed to be nothing, mere child's play. All simple enough, really, though he understood that it would not seem so to some others. Still it was magic. By it's very nature as boundless and wild and...more, so much more than even he could truely imagine.

    But John only shrugged in response, raising a brow at her distraction as though to prompt her onwards. Chise shook her head quickly, and them moved on to an explanation of her purpose there. Head coking to the side, John looked at her considerately, only to shake his head. That was what she had been so nervous to ask of him? From her manner he might have almost expected some rearranging of the very walls of reality atleast.

    " Atleast you are coming to me to ask this time." He murmured, shaking his head as he gestured for Chise to enter the room properly and take a seat, so that they might better speak.
