I tried to write a thing, not so good at it tho so I only have the intro so far, I'll try and post the next bit either a little later tonight or tomorrow morning.
"Hmmm, let's see-diminutive, grows near shallow slow running water, nice full petals, an excellent shade of maroon, and just a hint of blood orange bleeding in towards the stem oh yes you're exactly what I've been looking for. Now just hold still for a moment dear while I-"
"HEY MISS LOOK OUT!"
The young lady yelped in surprise, tipping over into the stream next to her as a sizeable blur darted between her and her intended target. Adding insult to injury the blur followed her into the water source with tremendous force, embedding itself into the streambed alongside her with a resounding splash and guaranteeing that not a millimeter of her remained dry.
"Oh blazes, not again. HEY REINA-GET SOME DRY SHEETS, QUICK! I'm so sorry about that miss it was an accident I swear-here let me help you up."
"Pfft-pfft *cough* Wha-what just happened?"
A look of bewilderment settled on the lady's face as she wiped the water from her eyes, allowing her sight to alight on the figure of the voice she'd heard earlier, a chestnut-haired youth reaching out to help her up from her current predicament looking somewhat disheveled after having apparently rushed down the hill next to the stream. His face showing an interesting mixture of concern and chagrin.
"Ah, that would have been a shield that shot past you-mine, in fact, sorry. You're not hurt are you miss?" The young man queried as he helped her up.
"No, just quite thoroughly wet and chilled. Er, my apologies I don't quite recall having done anything to earn shields being launched at my person mister…."
"Michael, and no that really wasn't supposed to happen miss-"
"Adalinda, Ada will do however."
"Miss Ada, *sigh* I know I just apologized but let me do it again; That really shouldn’t have happened I’m sorry that it did and I’m glad you weren’t hurt. Listen, my home's not too far from here I can put the fire on and see if I can get some spare clothes from my neighbor for you to wear while yours dry off. Please, it's the least I can do to make it up to you."
"Well, a rather sudden shock and impromptu drenching aside I am quite alright and most grateful for that apology, thank you Michael. Formalities aside I suppose I'll have to impose on you, goodness knows wet dress isn't the most comfortable of fashions this time of year. If you would kindly lead the way I- oh oh dear I almost forgot, pardon me but I don’t suppose you would mind helping me pick a certain flower, I believe I last saw it over-"
"MICHAEL! I BROUGHT THE SHEETS!"
Ada jumped in the direction of the sudden frantic voice that boomed from the hill Michael had come down from only to be met with the sight of yet another blur making its way towards her. Albeit not moving as quickly as the previous blur had, it was still moving at a rather incredible speed that it took Ada a slight moment longer than usual to recognize the figure as a raven haired girl rushing over with what appeared to be a hastily clumped together assortment of fabrics. Long enough in fact for Ada to be caught off guard once again as the girl started to throw the sheets of fabric on her.
“Sorry! Sorry! I’m really really sorry about all that-here let me get you dried off- Please don’t be mad at Michael I was just trying to-”
“-TO TELL ME to be more careful with my shield when I went and made a complete fool of myself. Again, sorry about that. Reina thank you for getting something to dry Miss Ada here off with. Miss Ada, this is Reina, the neighbor I mentioned earlier, Reina do you think you have some clothes you could lend her while hers dry off at my place?”
“What? But that’s not wha-”
*COUGH* “Reina please, I’d really appreciate it and I’m sure miss Ada would like to get dry as soon as possible.”
“I, uh, clothes yeah definitely. Here let me just help her-”
Reina and Michael jumped in shock at the ear-piercing mournful wail that emanated next to them only to see miss Ada physically crumble towards the ground crestfallen, her sight locked onto Reina’s feet, or rather the ground beneath them where a single crushed flower could be seen sticking out from under Reina’s shoes.
“MISS ADA!? OH SHOOT THE FLOWER! REINA QUICK GET OFF OF IT!”
“A-aaaaah no, I was so close”- *Hic* *hiiiiiiii*
As soon as Reina jumped off of the flower Ada reached out towards the crushed blossom and gingerly tried to lift it back up into its full upright position in between sobs, only for her to freeze in place as one of the petals fell off in defiance of her wishes.
“Miss ada? Are you alright?” Michael asked as he and Reina exchanged concerned glances. When no reply came Reina proceeded to kneel on the ground in front of Ada.
