Sunlight filtered through the trees above the florist's shop, casting the wooden building into dappled light and speckled shadows. The air was chilled, still reminding its inhabitants of the winter's cold embrace but the temperature was beginning to warm up. The spring was upon Allbrite Village, spreading its touch to the plant life as it began to wiggle its way through the air. The earth seemed to be warming itself with the spring, coming alive again for the inhabitants to begin another year.
Standing at the door to his shop, Theron Quinnin could view the smithy, the inn, and a few houses. The calm sight of these things was common to him but he still tried to take the opportunity to appreciate his surroundings every morning. Just a few paces behind his shop was the lake, a placid body of water that nurtured his plants and gave Theron plenty of water with which to water his growths. The other buildings looked similar to his, but had their own differences. The notable exception was the inn, which was crafted from stones and not the wood of the others. Theron turned his head slightly, amused that his shop would never be confused with any of the others. Even as early into spring as it was, Theron had already cultivated two patches of cheerful white toyflowers in front of his building.
Turning away from the plants outside his building, Theron looked to the inn. He was unsure of where his cousin had gotten to so early in the morning, but she did not seem to be around. He had awoken feeling renewed with the spring - it was the first day after all - but Theron was also feeling a little lonely. He knew very few people in the village well, since he was relatively new to the town. This, he determined, would change this year. He had made a solemn decision to get to know at least one other person in the town.
Stepping a few paces from his shop, Theron emerged into the square with the sunlight bright in his eyes. It was quiet this morning in the square, but he had a distinct hope that someone would come by so that he could begin his resolution.
