"Questions Arise"

(If you haven't read the introduction, you may want to go back and do that before you read chapter one. Things might make a little more sense :3 Thanks for reading!)
It was just an afternoon like any other at the Lovelocke property. And Evangeline sat at the kitchen window, propped against the sill as she often did. She was staring wistfully out through the glass which separated her from the vast nothingness that surrounded her small, blue mansion. All the while, a steady, cutting and chopping sound filled the otherwise quiet room. It was a sound only ever produced by Eva's Nana Hettie, as the plump old woman was the only cook in the household. Nana Hettie was preparing dinner for her young mistress. "Nana," Eva finally spoke without tearing her eyes away from the skyline.

"Yes, Mistress?"

"Do you ever wonder what's out there?"
"Of course not, dear," Nana Hettie replied casually. The question had not really surprised her, for this wouldn't have been the first time her young Mistress had asked her such a thing. "Why would I wonder? There is nothing out there beyond our house. Just a vast emptiness that goes on and on forever. You know that." "Yeah, I know. But, well, I was dreaming last night," Eva continued.

"Oh?"

"Yes, I was dreaming that I was smaller... Like a child... And you and I were down by a creek picking wild berries. But, Nana, the creek was not even a mile's walk from the house."
Instantly, the chopping noise ceased as Hettie stopped all movement in mid-cut. Her eyes nearly popped open in surprise, but she did not show any other signs of her sudden alarm. This had caught Nana Hettie completely off guard. She knew that the description Eva just provided could only be conjured up from the young girl's own, suppressed memories.

After a few short moments of silence, Hettie gathered herself back together, and continued to cut as if nothing was wrong. "Oh, I see." She finally replied. "That sounds like an interesting dream. But of course you know it was only a dream? You know there is no such landmark anywhere remotely close to us, don't you Mistress? You know that outside of the confines of this house there is nothing?"
"Yes... I know," Eva sighed dismally. She continued to stare through the window, straining her eyes to see as far as they could. She often did this in the hopes that one day she might finally see past the abyss. She knew that her house was the only place in the world... But sometimes she hoped that maybe there was something else out there. If there was, then she wanted to be the one to find it. Eventually, the silence in the kitchen grew long. All that could be heard was the sound of Hettie as she bustled about the kitchen. Eva slowly began to lose interest. "Nana, I've grown bored," she interjected at last as she turned to look at her Nana Hettie. Nana Hettie did not reply to her mistress this time. She didn't even appear to be listening anymore. Her mind seemed to have wondered off to some other far away time and place. Mindlessly, robatically, she stirred and stirred the bowl of batter in her hand.

This type of behavior was not uncommon for Hettie so it didn't leave Eva very surprised.
For lack of anything better to do, Evangeline decided to go upstairs in search of something or someone more entertaining.

She knew that Bridget was still busy with her house duties, so she set out to look for Sebastian.
Sebastian Black, the mistress's guardian, was always easy to find. He was a loner for the most part so enjoyed his peace and solitude. He also very much liked to read. So if he wasn't busy he always took refuge in the library with a book. Eva entered the library and just as she expected, there was Sebastian. He was sitting on the couch with a book in his hands.

"Sebastian," she asked as sweetly as she could. "Will you talk to me? I'm so bored."

"Anything, Mistress," Sebastian answered obediently.
So Eva freely helped herself to a seat next to her guardian. Meanwhile, he shut his book and gingerly placed it on the table, preparing to devote his full attention on his mistress. "What did you want to discuss with me, Mistress?" Sebastian asked once he was fully focused on Eva. "Sebastian, do you think there might be something else out there besides us? Do you really think we're all alone in the world?" Normally Eva would never asked such questions so boldly, but her dream had really made her start to think. Sebastian's normally stoic face took on an an expression of near horror for a moment. Normally, he would do anything for his mistress, and he'd answer any question she had to the best of his ability. But not this time. In this one matter, he just could not bring himself to ruin his little mistress's happiness forever. "You know you shouldn't be asking such things, Mistress." He answered disapprovingly.

Eva frowned and looked away from her guardian.
"I'm so sorry," Sebastian apologized immediately. He never wanted to hurt his mistress or upset her in any way. Upsetting her, even in this matter, tore at his very heart. "I just cannot answer your question." Sebastian continued. "You understand?" "Oh, it's alright," Eva finally answered, turning to Sebastian with a smile upon her small, pink lips. "You are forgiven." Sebastian was always so kind to her that Eva found it impossible to stay cross with him for very long. Sebastian was never so glad to be forgiven. His expression softened to a smile as he relaxed back into the couch. "Thank you, Mistress." Then, to Sebastian's surprise, Eva leaned forward and wrapped her little arms around his waist. He gasped in shock, not knowing what to do. He didn't want to embrace her back for fear that she would become offended or see him in an unfavorable light. All he could think to do with his arms was to put them up and away from his mistress's body. "Sebastian, you're so warm." She whispered. "And I can hear your heartbeat. I wonder why my body is so... dead." Eva's poor body lacked things like warmth and a heart beat so she always enjoyed gathering the warmth and the life from the three other bodies around her. "I wonder why I'm like this." She said quietly. "I wonder why I'm not human... What am I?."

Sebastian sat stiffly in the young mistress's arms, but he listened to her and his heart empathized. He wanted to tell her so badly that he too, was not human. But he just couldn't. Not now anyway.
Sebastian didn't know what to do or say to comfort his mistress or help ease her confused mind. Luckily, just at that moment, Hettie appeared in the library to announce that supper was on the table.

"There you two are!" She exclaimed. "I was looking for-"
Hettie stopped short when she noticed the two in their compromising positions. "You get your filthy hands off the mistress, you big old pervert!" Hettie scolded Sebastian.

Even though his hands were nowhere near or on Eva's body, he jumped away from her instantly, not at all wanting to be seen as a pervert toward his dear mistress. "Anyway, dinner is on the table." Hettie said pleasantly once she saw that Sebastian was no longer in physical contact with the mistress. And with that, Hettie turned and quickly lead the way to the dining room. Eva didn't possess any desire to leave the library. She was not at all hungry and she would much rather stay and chat with Sebastian than to sit in the large dining room before a bowl of food.

Sebastian, however, felt differently. He slowly stood up from the seat and proceeded to leave the room.
"Don't go, Sebastian," Eva begged, stopping Sebastian where he stood. "Come back and talk with me some more." She really had so many questions to ask him. She knew he wouldn't answer them all, but out of all her servants, he was the easiest to drag information out of. Eva had a way of making Sebastian do anything for her. Anything she asked of him, he would obey without protest. And she was well aware of her ability to do this, so she would often use it to her advantage. "No, Mistress," Sebastian answered, perfectly conscious of what his mistress was trying to pull on him. He usually had an iron resolve until it came to his mistress. Something about her always weakened him considerably. He was rendered so powerless in her presence and he never had any clue why. He knew if they sat and "talked" right now, he would be unable to resist answering her every question before long. "You should go on and eat your dinner," Sebastian continued, giving a valid excuse to detain any of her questions further. "And then you should go to bed. The mistress's health is of the utmost importance." Eva got up from her seat with a sigh, and hesitantly she followed Sebastian out of the library. The questions would just have to wait or later. Although Eva was content with the life she had known for so many years, she was beginning to think that it was impossible for her household to be the only form life in the entire world. She just couldn't help but wonder... Who else was out there?
