↙↙∴ this has turned out to be quite the interesting evening, indeed. ∷
Though they had been warned, Eden worried for a moment that he hadn't been able to hide his surprise when the small girl came into sight. Still, he nodded his head politely to her, smiling silently. Though a partner in all of this, he was still Vincent's servant, and opted to let him have the first words in this situation.
Despite her appearance, he could hardly doubt her... Even if she were
nothing but a mere child, children could often be more formidable and fearsome than any adult...
Still, even with his decision for silence made, he couldn't go about allowing himself to be misconstrued as rude in the young womans presence, and didn't want her thinking he to be making little of her.
"Pleased to meet you, Miss Tuesday," he said simply, as he nodded to her.
≈◥◥ A lady is a lady, after all. ◤◤≈
Vincent had realized there was a blurry, fine line between coming off as a gentleman and condescending in this case. As soon as Hansel had mentioned the girls appearance his mind had run rampant with just all that such a fate must have entailed... Or at least could have. The emotional troubles, the physical woes of being stuck in a never-more-aging body and yet an ever-maturing mind... A lady should be treated as a lady, after all, not a child, and yet that was probably most all of what she ever received, or so he could imagine.
With him, though, it was all too easy to dismiss appearance; she was lovely and utterly compelling to him. Though not a playboy he loved to know the mind of a woman, and though the very thought itself was something shameful, she, in particular, was all too intriguing. With his usual smile, he bowed his head a bit deeper than Eden had.
"Mister Eden here is too short with words, I dare say this is the most enchanting encounter we've had today, and Mister Blood, here was quite the charmer," his smile was calm and polite as he stood straight again, holding his hand to her. "I am Vincent Lysander, the pleasure is all mine, I assure you."
