"I believe even if I said no, you'd still escort me. So I won't." She wanted to put his hand back on the side of his face, but she refrained from doing so. "What will happen if we get caught along the way?"

"Well, we are leaving the castle so it will be easy to pretend you were a guest earlier in the day and we lost track of time so I am showing you out if need be." Jonathan said with some thought. He reached to open the door and poked his head out. "Come. I think the coast is clear. "He spoke quietly before stepping out into the hall.

Was he for real? That was the question that kept coming to her mind. Maybe she'd find herself waking up anymore in the middle of her things. A light smile on her face "Thank you" she waited for him to show her the way out, making sure to stay quiet once again.

Jon noticed her reply seemed to surprise her though he couldn't understand why. He made sure to lead the way and carefully peaked around each corner before guiding her out. It took almost no time to reach the front door. "Are you sure you're ok to walk the whole way on your ankle?"

"Yea.. I'm sure" She knew she shouldn't, but she didn't want him to go through the trouble. Besides she thought about being indecent and taking off her top layer to make the hike back easier.

"Alright, if it becomes difficult, let me know. I'm a strong man, I can carry you." Jon promised, not trying to show off. He opened the door and let her go first before following her closely. He was listening and watching her to make sure there was nothing wrong with her walk.

They walked in silence for a little until they got further away from the manor. She started to hum and humming turned into singing, though the words were in a different language. She held up her dress as she ignored the pain in her heel. Her head turned to look over her shoulder at him just to make sure he was still there.

Jon had been quiet, just enjoying the peaceful night as they went. He looked over as she hummed and sang, smiling slightly to himself. When she looked at him he took the moment to speak. "Is that.. um.. "He struggled to remember anything he had picked up. He recalled the party that the had met at. "Yiddish?"

"Yes, it's a song about the moon" She stopped and took off her shoes. "how it comes out to try to find it's love the sun.." She looked up at him, her shoes in her hands. "Forgive me for my un lady like mouth, but I am about to strip out of this thing. The idea that a proper layer has to wear all these layers. Sort of makes me want to sell most of my clothes. Don't get me wrong, I feel beautiful for a time period, but I don't believe they were made with travel in mind."

Jon held out his hands to take her shoes and the overclothing. "I will hold them so you aren't burdened with so much weight. Dresses are heavy things."He said without giving in how he knew, he was certain she could assume. "I do not think anyone will see you and as long as you aren't fully bare, it isn't all that scandalous."He chuckled softly.

He was in the middle of talking when she was already stripping down. The main dress falling to the ground when he finished his sentence. The next thing to go was the belt contraption that had a bag on the back of it, its what provided that big poof in the back illusion. She kept her back to the man, because she was afraid to see his facial expressions. Dalia lifted the other layer over the top of her head, which in return moved her slip upward against her skin revealing her thighs. Once the layer was off her slip moved back down into place. "It's not my reputation I am worried about." She turned her head slightly over her shoulder as she directed her words at him before crouching down to pick up the layers.

Jon had been looking away as she changed. He loved women and doing things with them, but he thought himself a gentleman and didn't watch women change, that was the same as peeping. Unless they undressed in front of him just so he could watch, that was completely different. "Oh? What is it you're worried about?"

"Yours, of course." She handed him the heavier of the items, but kept the shoes and lighter layer. Standing in front of him in her slip she smiled. Dalia wasn't trying to be a tease, but it surely did look that way from an outside view. "Being caught walking with the indecent smart mouth seamstress, could lead to work troubles I think. Especially, if Mrs. Meijer gets word. She seems to have some sort of influence wherever she goes." Of course this was pure speculation and Mrs. Meijer probably cared less.

Jon laughed softly and shook his head. "I think they expect it from me by now. Besides, I am not worried about it. Colette would probably not even know who she was talking about. "He smiled huge and shrugged. "I think there are more rumors around. Enough to write a book. Me walking down a path with you a bit indecent would almost be boring."

"Oh, who is Collette again?" She was still brand new to the area, so she hadn't put names to faces, nor had she seen every face in this village.
