Hm mmm hmm hm hmmm.
The gentle humming of Asteria's national anthem came from one of the sweetest voices you just might ever hear. Delilah Cardinal was in her room, the one she shared with her biological sister as well as her religious Sister Annabelle. Sister Annabelle was at the chapel house, supposedly helping an elderly man regain his fallen strength. Her ibon, Aphelia, was still sleeping in her stable behind the two resident manors, as it was only two hours after sunrise and she was very tired.
Delilah was folding clothes that she had washed and hung up at sunrise. She returned them to their respective drawers in her dresser, humming merrily to herself. Oh how dearly she wished to know how to play a musical instrument! Those blessed with the gift of music found a special place in her heart. Perhaps she'd take up lessons, if free time permitted it. Perhaps the harp?
The angelic high elf smiled at the thought as she put away her final garment. To create hymns and melodies that filled the silence of speechlessness would be splendid.
Of course, her fantasy of music disappeared when she reminded herself of her next task: find Olivia. Brother Gregory requested help cleaning the Priory horses and their stables, and Delilah gladly offered her help as well as her little sister's. She wasn't sure if Olivia would be happy about that, but it was all in good intention.
"Olivia?" Delilah called as she walked up the stairs to the main floor of the sister house. "Olivia!"
