As Jacques entered the old train station, he could hear the tinkling twang of a classical guitar playing softly from the massive vintage stereo speakers he had brought from his apartment in Montreal a few weeks earlier. He hung up his coat and was startled to find Tanita sprawled on the floor of the main hall, hidden by the big sofa they'd recently bought at a local thrift shop. She'd dragged the old gym mat in front of the antique cast iron stove, and adjusted the air vent to obtain the maximum amount of heat.

The dead leaves from the old oak growing in the center of the complex rustled as they were blown around in the light breeze.
Three young women dressed in the Order's uniform appeared from down the hall, I had never really got to admire the dress before; it was mostly a delightful shade of light blue, much like the sky in summer time, the embroidery around the edges of each piece was esquisite.
A half-length, white skirt was worn by both female and male healers, topped with a banner which hung from the belt. On the banner was a white cross on top of the same sky-blue fabric as found on the bodice.
