Alice looked towards Lillian and dipped her head a little, a silent signal of dismissal. Lillian smiled and gave her a small bow in return, peering over at Ellie. "Enjoy your morning young Miss," she said before turning to head back up the stairs to finish up her morning duties. She could see why Miss Alice seemed fond of the young girl. She really was such a sweet child. Alice beamed and held out her hand to help Ellie down the last few steps, "Good morning, Ellie." She greeted, her dark blue dress contrasting her pale skin and raven hair. "How are you feeling?" She asked, looking the young girl over as if searching for anything wrong. One might say she was growing a sort of motherly instinct over the child, something Alice wouldn't deny nor agree to. Having never been a mother before it would be impossible for her to tell.

Ellie looked after Lillian as the lady left, leaving her alone with Alice who held out her hand. Being the little girl she was who, as of right now, didn't understand a whole lot she thought that she was asking for the shirt she had in her hands. An embarrassed pout crossed her lips as she held it out, clearly worried that she would get into some type of trouble for getting blood on it. It wasn't her shirt. "I messed it..."she mumbled, now too nervous to answer Alice's question about how she was feeling. Her back did still kind of hurt, but she knew those wounds would take some time to heal. Time was something Ellie had a lot of. "I sorry..."another mumble as she stared at the lower steps, the ends of her long, snow white, hair dancing in the air around her. The wind was stirring slightly due to her being so nervous, she hoped it didn't get out of hand or else she would have a lot of explaining to do and she wasn't sure she wanted to talk about it. Alice proved to be trustworthy, but she just didn't like it. "I didn't mean to..."

Alice’s gaze fell on the shirt and for the briefest moments was left confused, of course she didn’t let it show. She only smiled and took the shirt in one hand and reached over to brush back some of Ellie’s hair with the other. “Oh sweetie, it’s alright. You don’t need to apologize for anything,” she reassured the young girl. She took Ellie’s hand gently in her own “Come on, how about we do something with your hair and then we can go into town and get you some nice dresses. How does that sound?” she asked. Alice was only vaguely aware of the sudden stir of wind, a breeze but she didn’t think too much on it right now. Truth be told she didn’t know how to take care of children, but she was going with her gut. Her brother Elijah had always been much better with kids. Perhaps I should visit him, he’ll know what to do… she thought, gazing at the snowy-haired child.

Despite what Alice told her she still felt bad about the shirt, she could have taken much better care of it. When one was asleep they weren't aware of what they did, but she could've made it to where she wouldn't have had moved as much. It wasn't like she could do anything about it now but she knew the guilt would linger for some time. That's how it was. Guilt ate at her until it was all she felt and she still felt guilty over her own existence. Maybe if she hadn't been born at all her human parents would've been happy and she wouldn't have bothered the man who turned her or the ones who adopted her. This was bad, she shouldn't be thinking about it and yet there it was. Always haunting her. She was so deeply lost in these thoughts that it startled her when Alice took her hand, almost causing her to pull away but she was quick to steady herself. Ellie still wasn't used to being touched without some kind of pain following it, but she had to remember that this person wouldn't hurt her. That she was safe here. "Don't have to..."she muttered, finally bringing herself to speak. Alice didn't have to get her anything, she didn't feel as if she deserved it because a big part of her still believed that this wouldn't work out. That Alice would eventually grow tired of her too.
