The witch was satisfied the girl had followed without much prodding. Good, given her timid behavior from before, there was a good chance she wouldn't dare disobey the rule. It wasn't like the world would end if she broke it, but dammit, she liked her privacy, and that corridor led to her personal space. And there were some things simply best left hidden.... Like having a home in the most dangerous forest of all the lands, tucked away in a discreet cave guarded by concealment spells wasn't "private" enough. She wasn't a hermit for nothing.

Absently, she wiped the back of her hand across her mouth, clearing away any stray crumbs.

"No. I don't really care about the temperature of my food. The last time it was used..." she paused, thinking, "Must have been before the last, er, visitor left." It looked like that had been quite a long time ago. "And yes. So sorry if it doesn't match up to your usual standards, noble girl." she added dryly, kicking her legs as she leaned back on her hands. "If you want anything better, you'll have to cook it yourself."

The witch's head tilted at the girl's last statement, a spark of curiosity lighting her sharp eyes.

"And what sort of fate might that be...?"

The princess rolled her eyes at the witch, wiping the dust off the counters and stove before looking for a cutting board and knife, as well as simple ingredients for a simple but delicious soup.

She began cooking, carefully cutting the vegetables and boiling water on the stove. As she prepared the meal she stayed quiet, not sure if she should tell the witch what her fate was. Most would desire her fate, but she absolutely despised it. As enchanting as the life of a princess sounded, it was also incredibly exhausting and once the dragon would trap her it would become even lonelier than it already was beforehand.

Her delicate hands worked in a fine yet quick manner as she diced the ingredients, adding them to the boiling water and adding a few spices she found. Ahh, it smells so good. A soft hum of delight was heard from the girl, her wings settled against her back. The blonde didn't know if the witch would understand why the princess wanted to leave her previous life behind, so she didn't answer, instead finishing up the soup and getting two bowls for the both of them, filling them up and setting one down near the witch along with a spoon, setting hers down in front of her as she seated herself elegantly.
Love, Kitty!

The witch rolled her eyes right back as the girl continued to refuse to tell her. Fine, it was her choice if she wanted to stay here forever. Hopefully one day she'd quit being shy or whatever it was and just out with it. Honestly, what was there to hide? it wasn't like she would care about the witch's opinion of her. The pale woman rolled her shoulders in a half shrug. She supposed so long as the girl wasn't a royal, she didn't care that much. And she highly doubted the nymph could be. What royal would run away from home? They of all people had it made.

The witch seemed distracted as the girl puttered around, intense gaze fading as she stared into nothing, the only movement that of her hands in her lap; the fingers of one hand tracing strange patterns on the back of the other. Her head snapped up as the girl approached setting the steaming bowl nearby. The woman's pale brow quirked, and her nose twitched. Cautiously, she picked up the bowl, ignoring the spoon as she sniffed it at close range, before tipping the container, taking an experimental sip and seemingly not bothered by the temperature.

Both brows went up, and she took another. After that, the warm mixture quickly disappeared. The oddly pale pink of her tongue flashed as it darted out to wipe her lips clean, the witch coolly setting the bowl aside. As if on cue, a loud boom resonated through the cave. The white haired individual didn't look surprised, sliding off the counter and smoothing her tunic with one hand.

"Mm... Thanks." she muttered eloquently, eyeing the girl as if contemplating why she'd shared. Seeming to dismiss it, her gaze turned towards the door. "Now, it seems you'll be getting an early introduction to one of the neighbors... Might be for the best. Come with me." and with that she was off down the hall again, past the split off and back through the passage leading out of the cave, the witch not even bothering to get her boots.

The princess only had little time to eat - or rather gulp down- as much of the soup as possible, when a loud bang surprised her. The witch, who had previously slurped the whole of the soup without a hint of a reaction to the heat of the food. The blonde got to her feet when the pale woman spoke, knowing she didn't really have another option than to follow her. She quickly did as told, wondering what this neighbour could be, as it created such loud noise.

[Sorry for the short post]

In no time at all, the pale woman was ducking out into the wider, rough cave just outside the entrance to her own abode, the cooler air washing over her as the protections of her home were left at the door. Her eyes scanned the entrance before she stepped away from the wall, assessing the number of visitors. Thankfully, it only seemed to be the one. Her bare feet strode over the uneven rock as she approached, not cautious, but slow.

The being that now loomed in the cave entrance was so tall it nearly blocked all sunlight. It's craggy face and body showered dust at every move, and the stone giant's attention seemed to follow the much smaller witch. It was a Golem. A huge, vaguely humanoid form pieced together from the elements of the earth, moss growing on it's surface and saplings sprouting from it's head.

The thing's head turned when the nymph stepped out from the concealment charms, it's eyes globes of pure amber, the only facial feature on it's head. It lifted one limb, looking ready to take a step towards her, until the witch put out a hand and barked something in a foreign tongue. Despite her considerably smaller stature, she didn't look cowed by the stone creature, and it seemed to heed whatever she said. Almost reluctantly, it lowered its foot, and a deep rumble rolled through the air, almost more felt than heard. The witch turned back to look at the girl, and jerked her head in a 'come here' motion.

"The forest wants to meet you." she stated, as if that made total sense.
