It was almost coming up to the third year the celestials had spent in Evermore city and while Ophelia still often held her breath, things with the Ailward's had reached somewhat of a stalemate, neither side wanting to make the first move against one another and yet she still found herself on edge, she hated feeling like her whole world could implode in a matter of moments. To keep her mind off the fact that she felt like a prisoner in her own home the Wayfinder had been slowly changing the interior design of the castle, working to make it feel less like an empty shell and more like home.

So far she had fully replaced the furniture in the communal area to look more modern and gotten help to have internet and a large TV and surround system installed too. Ophelia wasn't much for technology herself, much preferring the simpler life she had known through her years but like the wind, change would come and go and if you didn't move forward then you got left behind. Besides she was sure the younger celestials would appreciate having more to do than read their way through the pretty extensive castle library.

The chandeliers had been replaced with more focused and ambient lights and by this point, the castle was looking much more like the homes she saw in magazines than the old dated building it had been when the celestials had arrived. Ophelia was proud of what she and some of the others had achieved, perhaps it was small in the grand scheme of things they needed to do but it was a step towards some level of normality and normality was all she wanted right now, the celestials had lived their entire lives running or trapped and all she could ever ask for them was peace and the change to exhale at least for a few moments.

The weekend had rolled around once again and right now the room was all but empty with but a few white sheets lining the floors. At the edge the room sat a massive bucket of light blue paint and Ophelia, dressed in possibly the most sloppy outfit she had worn in her entire life. There were spots of paint all over the clothes and they were pretty much entirely ruined but Ophelia was humming away as she painted the walls. It was pretty early morning and considering that most of the celestials tended to be night owls she figured that it would give her a few hours to work on all the things she wanted to without being interrupted.

When the Wayfinder, however, heard footsteps from down the hall however Ophelia quickly scaled down the latter she had climbed atop and yelled to warn the person to be careful but before the words could get out the bucket paint was already toppling over.

Katrina looked at Ophelia and smiled. When she spoke about it reminding her of what she wished she looked at her with a heart filled with emotion for her. "I am sorry, I feel like there's a story there. Something you can know is to tell me anything. I could have been a therapist as well. I love to sit and talk with people. But to listen to them and their lives. I am always open to listening. If you need to talk." 

When she spoke about the blue she couldn't help but laugh a little. "From what I seen of the color, I liked it! So, yes what a good choice!" She said with another laugh. Listening to her speak about the rules she gave a quick nod of her head.

"That is an understandable rule. It sucks that people are still wishing harm on us. So much trouble in the world. From all the species, not just us." 

She laughed under her breath and shrugged slightly “I guess you could just say I had a lot of near misses when it came to love and I really thought every time I’d finally found what I wanted” she pressed her lips together, it did feel easier to talk about it now that some time had passed but she still felt like it was always going to come down to a choice between duty to her people and love and each and every time she would choose her people “Sometimes I think I might be cursed when it comes to all that” she laughed looking down for a moment “Please tell me you’re doing better than I am?” she chuckled slightly.

“Well I’d offer to show you it again but I’m sure you’ve experienced enough blue paint for a lifetime” she teased with an amused shake of her head “Might have to cast you in a role in Avatar” she added with a grin, she really liked that movie when she watched it, when they first came to Evermore she had gone on a bit of a binge-watch of movies, picking from the list of top-rated ones and that was one of the top voted, probably because the visuals in it were absolutely stunning.

“It does indeed” she agreed and sighed “But such is our reality, if we let it be a lead weight on our ankles then everyone might as well go back to being in those wretched cages” she sighed under her breath, so as much as it worried her what others in the city might do or who might get hurt, she had to give everyone the freedom they needed to live their lives and be happy in some sense, she was sure the definition was different from one person to another.

Katrina looked at Ophelia, it was sad to hear that she wasn't able to find love. Katrina wasn't a religious person but believed things happened for a reason. Unknowing to a person at the time but the length of time she had been alive she knew that there was a reason these things were happening. They had to be, at least she hoped it would be.

"I have met a woman, I am happy with her. We have only been together a while but its going good. But who knows your person is out there. Maybe waiting to meet you too." She said with a positive smile. When the blue color was mentioned and spoke about avatar she couldn't help but laugh.

"Ah, I always wanted an acting career but I had to admit I thought it would be a musical not a story of blue people. I will admit I haven't seen it so I may have to watch it before applying for the part." She said as she looked at her gently.

"The world can be a cruel place at times. But we need more people to bring a positive spin on things and it will make the world a better place. Right?"
