"One more time, say it again."

"A-again?"

"Yes, again."

Itt swallowed and nodded, looking down towards his feet to think. This lady made him repeat the words a lot of times already, and she was looking directly into his eyes. Her stern gaze was hard to avoid since they were approximately the same height. "Chris-ta le-Lune say I w-ill be a bell or two la-te. Pl-" he cleared his throat,"Please sta-y un-til I return." He looked up at her with a smile.

She looked back, eyes narrowing. "Good."

"Good?"

"Yes, good. Give this to Oleander. Man with brown, messy hair?" She looked at him, making sure he understood.

Which he didn't. What kind of hair? His face contorted.

"Messy hair?" Christa repeated one more time. When he only blinked, she promptly ran her fingers through and shook around his hair, Itt flinching and taking a step back, hunching over more than usual. She pointed to his now unkempt hair. "Messy. Messy hair. Brown messy hair."

He nodded vigorously. That was a bit uncalled for, but he got the point. "Messy."

"Good. Now go." She waved him away with her hand and walked away into the crowd.

Itt huffed to himself, pausing to take a deep breath before turning and heading towards the direction she has pointed to go. She struggled to explain to him earlier exactly where this messy brown haired man was. The only thing he understood was "trees on water", and when she pointed on his map, she pointed off the island, in the water. That didn't make any sense to Itt, since trees don't grow on water, they grow on the ground. But she insisted, so he rushed towards the docks in search of these mysterious water trees.




After getting turned around several times due to his map being turned the wrong way, again, Itt came to the proper docks and looked out on the lake. To his surprise, there did appear to be trees on the water! Who would have thought! Mysterious water trees. Itt boarded the nearest ferry that was faced in that general direction and was carried over to the large boat.

If he was being honest, Itt was both impressed and disappointed when he finally arrived. From afar, it didn't look like the trees were on a big raft, so it was a bit of a let down to see that they weren't actually growing on he water. But on the other hand, these were the biggest trees he's seen in this floating city. All the other trees were more like bushes, while this was a certified forest!

Before the shuttle even properly docked, Itt jumped up onto the docking platform, looking up towards the tree line, walking to the entrance.

His mouth only hung open slightly.
