That beautiful purple hued gaze is lost beneath the fair skinned eyelids of the fae child. She slumbers in her bedroom of the lodge peacefully, knowing that tomorrow when she opened those strange purple eyes that she would still be in her home and would never be asked to leave her new found family. Speaking of opening those purple eyes, Maeve's eyelashes flutter open, a distant smiling coming to hover on pale lips. "Good morning," she says to no one in particular, her voice is like silk warmed in the summer sun yet even more delicate, as though her lungs are made of crystal and they'll shatter if she speaks any louder. That thin-lipped smile continuing to ghost over her face as golden hair lays splayed out behind her on her soft pillow. She comes to sit up in her bed, that pale golden hair resting lightly against her back like stream of golden sunshine trickling down. Eventually she pushes that blanket off of her and comes to stand barefoot in her periwinkle pjs as she moves about to make the bed. And the child, even when performing such a simple task, she moves with such a fluidity as is natural for the fae. But Maeve is so young that she does not yet know of her own beauty nor of the enchanting young woman she will one day become and remain. She is far too busy noticing the beautiful smiles of others enjoying the feeling of warmth that only friends and family can bring her.
The pale child finishes making her bed before a small chirp of excitement reaches her lips. Today was Halloween. A soft smile rests on her lips as joy bubbles within her petite chest. But as she goes into her closet, her face turns into a wide grin as lavender eyes lay upon her costume. The golden haired child had been inspired this year for Halloween by the Nightshade pack and such the blonde had decided that she wanted to dress up as a big cat for Halloween, despite the fact that she was so small in stature. A true, genuine smile finds her angelic face as she lays her costume out on her bed, knowing she would return to it as soon as she had some breakfast and got ready, Maeve already knew she wouldn't be allowed outside of the house until the basics were taken care of, her new found family ever careful of the little fae girl.
The wildflower child quickly finishes her breakfast, hardly even been able to taste it due to the speed with which she ate, the golden haired child far too excited to take her time doing anything this morning. There was fun to be had after all and Maeve wanted to show everyone at the Ark her costume before she went trick or treating after sunset. "After I change will you drop me off at the Ark, I want to show Tobi, Aiden, Raven, and everyone my costume," high soprano voice had said excitedly before rushing back to her room to change.
The golden haired girl was quite proud of herself, after all she had made the costume with hardly any help at all. She brushes a strand of creamy hair behind those ears that arch into a fine point as she holds up her costume. It comprised of a light grey long sleeve leotard and thicker, light grey tights to go underneath, along with a matching little skirt to go around her wast. All over the leotard, tights, and skirt, were black spots, not unlike Tobi's leopard spots. For this year's Halloween Maeve had decided that she was going to be a snowy leopard, her attempt to fit in with the cats of the Nightshade pack. The girl with hair as light and blonde as moonlight had even made a fluffy tail to go off of her costume. Those oddly colored eyes gaze over her costume briefly before changing into it, adding some spots to her face and a pair of leopard ears to go atop her head in the the strands of pale golden hair.
She can hardly contain herself as she leaves Somnia and travels back to Sacrosanct, that sweet smile never leaving her face. The amethyst eyed child had not had many opportunities to celebrate halloween in her life and so having a proper celebration this year was certainly an exciting venture. As the Ark comes into Maeve's line of vision, the little girl with hair as pale as starlight cannot help it, her excitement takes over her and she bursts into a reckless run up to the ship, pale golden hair streaming out behind her. The pale child runs up the ship and only when she reaches the entrance does she halt her wild race with nothing but the wind. The slender girl's breath is quick as she feels the tiredness in her limbs, but only for a moment before she moves inside the ship. "Happy Halloween!" the pale child shouts of excitedly as she begins to look for the Nightshade pack, violet eyes roaming every which way and she moves forward, her steps quiet and lithe as was the way of the fae people.
When she rounds a corner that is when those lavender eyes spot Aiden and once more that pale child moves into a run, the golden haired child no doubt excited to see the panther man, as she always was. The blonde throws her arms around the man, though she is small that she doesn't stand very tall next to Aiden. She then steps back so that the were would be bale to properly admire her cover costume. "Look," she says before presenting him with a graceful twirl. "I am a snow leopard, a big cat, just like the pack," the darling little dove says, the love she has for the pack evident in her voice, her eyes, and the way she reaches for Tetradore's hand and grasps it within her own tiny fingers. Her other hand reaches behind her and pulls her fluffy tail over. "Do you like it?" She asks before dropping his hand and letting those violet eyes rove over the area once more. "Where are Tobi, Raven, and everyone?" She asks curiously, for showing off her costume certainly wasn't going to end with just Tetradore.
