Unity Celebration. On January 2nd, 2014 a lot of things changed in Lochland Grove. A lot of things had changed in Mariet, Louisiana. Seraphim wasn’t sure if the town had ever been rebuilt, but she knew that Lochland houses many of its former residents. It was as much a pat on the back to the town as it was a “we’re glad you stayed,” to the flood victims. It was nice. Celebratory. Although Seraphim had moved to Lochland ten months prior to these events, Lainey had definitely not been around. She wasn’t born until years later. She was just shy of two years old now. Her birthday coming up in April. She was more than old enough to enjoy the event though.

Seraphim held her daughter’s hand. Sera had on some thin black gloves, and Lainey had on thicker mittens. A hat, a coat, tights, a dress, the works. Seraphim found that she still loved the cold. It was preferable to the warm summers. Since the ice skating rink came to town each year now, Sera had been taking full advantage. In fact, she was on the ice probably four or five days a week, but she had to find the time. She took Lainey two days a week, and her daughter seemed to really like it. She liked it a lot less than Sera, but Sera did have about twenty eight years more experience on the ice.

Today they were not on the ice, they were eating some funnel cake type food, and Sera shared some apple cider. There were Christmas lights out, and although the sun had not yet gone down, Sera could see the vibrant colors. “Those lights will be so pretty when its gets dark, sweetie.

Pwetty.

Mmhm.” She finished the treat and wiped both of their hands off with a wet wipe. Sera lifted Lainey up to sit on her shoulders and continued walking around to see what would interest her daughter.

(Thought this might be a good thread for Grace and Hannah)

It would be another few months before Hannah started Kindergarten. However, Grace felt it was never too late for her to be educated. Grace had been teaching her how to read some, as well as some basic math. Another important thing for her daughter to learn was about the town she now lived in. Yes, Lochland Grove had a rather chilly history in some aspects, but it also had a grand recent history in what the town had done for the refugees from the flooding in Louisiana.

Grace and Hannah were now walking with their hot chocolate. They had eaten before the arrived, and the chocolate served as both dessert and something to warm them up. Hannah looked around and then back at her mom.

"Mommy, is a flood when there's a lot of water somewhere?" she asked.

"Yes it is," she said. "Flood's do a lot of damage, and can hurt a lot of people, and the people of Lochland Grove were very kind to help some of those people out."

"That's good," smiled Hannah. Grace smiled back before Hannah's attention turned to a cute little girl being held by a woman Grace recognized from Gertie's.

"Hi!" said Hannah, waving at the little girl.

The history that was most important to you was usually tied to how long you had lived in Lochland Grove. Some newcomers came for the murder, still, and some even for the fresh blood. That was pretty creepy, but since Sera worked at a diner, she encountered all types. The fantasy chasers, the family tourists, the locals. Oh the locals were something. Old men before they went to the logging mill, teenagers who wanted out as fast as they could get there. Sometimes drunk twenty-somethings that needed some food and knew Gertie’s was the only place open. There were no chains in town, so Gertie’s was apparently a good replacement for McDonalds. Better food at least.

Lainey was happily oblivious to the history of the town. The murders, the floods, the drunk people. She just knew what was in front of her face a lot of the time. Even if one of her favorite people happened to be one of the ones who had definitely shown up at Gertie’s very drunk. She was young enough that she wouldn’t have known what was going on even if she’d been there, but one AM was well beyond her bedtime. Sera wondered what her friend was up to that day, but unless she ran into him, it was unlikely she would even ask.

A small child waved at Lainey, and Sera was only away of it because Lainey’s head was suddenly pressed up behind her mother. She didn’t like strangers. She was very picky. Sera noticed the little girl, and gave her a smile and a small wave of her own, while Lainey continued not giving her visible attention.

Hannah frowned a bit at the girl not responding, so much that she ignored the woman when she waved. Grace knew how much Hannah loved little kids and animals, and imagined she was disappointed. However, Grace also understood that many children were shy. Hannah just happened to not be one of them.

"I don't think the little girl likes me," said Hannah.

"Oh I doubt that's the case," said Grace. "Some children are just a little shy. They don't mean to be rude or anything like that. They just have to get used to others."

"Was I shy when I was really little?" asked Hannah.

"Well, when you were a baby, yes, but you definitely grew out of that," chuckled Grace. She then looked over at the woman and smiled. "I hope we're not bothering you. Hannah just wants to play with every baby and toddler that she sees. You have a very beautiful daughter."

Grace didn't want to carry on the conversation from there, as she didn't want to make the mother feel awkward. Grace tended to avoid that a good bit with adults she didn't know well.

"We'll let you get back to the celebration," she said as she took Hannah's hand and was about to turn around.

Seraphim realized that the little girl was unhappy with Lainey’s unfriendly reaction. In adults, Sera knew that there were some people who were shy and some people who were rude. Some people claimed shyness as an excuse to ignore people, but manners were not made irrelevant by discomfort. Children were held to more lenient standards. Toddlers definitely didn’t know what to do about manners, and Sera wasn’t quite sure if her daughter was shy or just judgmental. Time would tell, or she would grow out of it.

The mother was smiling at Seraphim now. She apologized fro her daughter, more or less. Hoping that they were not bothering them, and explaining her daughter, Hannah’s, behavior. Of course it didn’t surprise Sera. More children were curious than they were put off. “Thank you. Your daughter seems very sweet, Lainey is just… uncertain about any strangers.

We’ll let you get back to the celebration.” The young mother sounded a bit uncomfortable, and so Seraphim nodded.

Thanks. I hope you two have a nice time. The festivities look very nice this year. And lots of treats if you’re into that,” she suggested to Hannah. Children did like treats. Maybe not more than adults, but they were not so worried about health and their figure, so they were willing to indulge more and felt no guilt for it. Either way, Seraphim as perfectly happy to keep walking around with her daughter and let everyone go in peace.

Grace smiled when the woman thanked her and said that her daughter seemed very sweet. This was true. Hannah wasn't the perfect kid, but she was very kind to others. Sometimes too kind, and too interested in wanting to be around people, but kind nonetheless. She did like when other people noticed that.

"Thank you as well," said Grace in regards to the compliment for Hannah. "And I completely understand about your daughter. It's always intriguing to think about how a child so young sees the world and takes everything and everyone in."

Grace smiled when the woman wished her and her daughter a nice time at the festival, and spoke of how nice they looked. Grace thought that was the end of the this little meeting, which was fine with her. However, as Grace thanked the woman again, and she and her daughter were about to walk away, Hannah turned to her mom.

"Mommy, I have to go potty," she said. Grace looked about, but couldn't see the nearest facilities. She turned and stepped over to the other mom.

"I'm so sorry to bother you again, but do you know where the nearest restroom is?" she asked. "My daughter..." She guessed the woman would know the rest of the sentence.

Children, as young people, had their own personalities, quirks, interests, and actions. They were going to behave autonomously as soon as they could. Hannah seemed like a perfectly nice child to Seraphim. She couldn’t account for Lainey’s opinion. The little girl’s mother thanked Sera for her words, and remarked on the intriguing minds of children and their outlook. Seraphim smiled, “They’re definitely… their own little people.

They seemed to have parted ways, but before Sera could get very far she heard a new address. Did she know where the nearest restroom was? Apparently the little girl needed to use the facilities. “I understand. Hm… I believe, ow,” she paused as Lainey tugged at her hair a bit tighter. Deep breath, start again, “I believe its behind a waffle stand.” She stepped to the side until she could clearly see it, and pointed in that direction, “Yeah, that waffle stand with the pink sign. It should be just on the other side. You can’t see it from here, but I remember that much.

Although there wasn’t much to be accomplished, she was hopeful that she made things a bit easier on the other woman. A simple bit of guidance to avoid any delays. She was sure that getting lost in this lovely event would become immediately less “lovely” getting lost on the way to the restroom. Plus it was beyond Sera to resist helping someone if they asked.

Grace smiled about how children were their only little people. That was true. Hannah certainly was. It was amazing how she looked at things in such a different way than Grace. Sometimes she felt Hannah had a much improved way of seeing aspects of the world.

"They really are," she said. "Sort of makes one miss being a child when they get older."

Grace smiled when the woman gave her directions to the restroom. She felt bad though, bothering the woman right after they had parted ways. Grace had a hard time talking to adults because she just felt like she was terrible around them. She always said the wrong thing, did the wrong thing, and some times she couldn't keep her mouth shut even if she was trying to. She really needed to work on that, especially being a teacher and all.

"Thank you again," she said. "I'm sorry to have bothered you again. Enjoy your day." She then took Hannah's hand and led her to the restroom.

Later, Grace sat with Hannah and the two enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate. She looked about, seeing all the couples and families enjoying themselves, and wondered what she and her daughter could find themselves doing next. It was times like these that she truly appreciated Hannah and how strong of a bond the two had.
