Finn walks through the door after Kim, dressed in jeans and a light long-sleeved shirt, carrying a big red backpack.

Immediately he looks to the left, and the Tor, tilting his head at it slightly, before looking back to the right. "You live down there?"

He has listened to several rambling lectures on England from Henry, completely failed to read the book on the 1980s he got from the Bar, and has a folding switchblade in his pocket.
He is totally prepared. And enthused!

"I do," she tells him, smiling brightly. "You can see it from here, if you look closely -- see over there, that little house?"

Barely more than a cottage, really.

Kim shakes her head.

"Oh no," she protests, "you're the one visiting! Where do you want to go first, any ideas?"

"Absolutely. Come on."

She leads the way down the path with the ease of long familiarity.

When they reach the small house, Kim unlatches the front door and pushes it open, then steps out of the way.

"The couch folds out into a bed," she tells him, "so just put your things anywhere, and it'll be fine."

"It does," she confirms, smiling. "I'll show you later."

"And as to what's here..."

She glances up toward the Tor as though her gaze is drawn there, then looks back to Finn.

"Lots of things." A beat. "Many of them have to do with Arthur and Jen-- Guinevere-- just so you know," Kim adds, softly. "From a long, long time ago."

Among those that she might ever possibly bring here, Kim thinks, it stands to reason that Finn dan Shahar would notice such things.

"The kind of interesting that you'd like to see, or the kind that's nice but you'd really rather spend your time elsewhere?"

"Okay," she says, gently. "Okay."

"In that case, why don't we head toward the Abbey first? We can stop by Chalice Well on the way."

"Honestly, I think it's more fun just to explore," Kim admits. "They'll have lots of brochures anyway, if you want to read up later."

"What-- oh."

Her smile's a little rueful.

"That's a car. Did anyone tell you about cars?"

"No reason for you to have," she says. "I don't have one myself yet, but lots of people here do. It makes it easier to get around."

She considers for a second, then offers,

"I guess I could rent - borrow - one, if you want to see further out in the country? Either on this visit or your next."

And oh, but she does not miss that flash of joy, far from it. Kim smiles -- and then looks suddenly sheepish at his question.

"No, I don't -- horses aren't that common right here in the town, but it's easy enough to get around by walking...?"

"We'll be fine as far as we're going," she reassures him. "It's not that big a place, not really."

"And don't worry about that - we'll figure it out, if there's any need. In the meantime, look there--"

She indicates the path that leads off to the side and up a small hill toward a stone arch.

"That's the way to Chalice Well."

"It's a holy well," Kim tells him. "It's been around for a long, long time."

"Not as much as you might think."

She sounds rueful.

"I did before, when I visited before I decided to move here, but since I arrived -- well, I've been busy with the practice. I've done some exploring, though."

Kim takes in his look and bursts out laughing.

"It's not that bad, I promise."

"Oh, enough," she says, cheerfully.

"No, no," Kim reassures him. "It's not like that. Most of the people I see are children with the sniffles, or a little fever or two."

A beat.

"It's not like -- well, elsewhere."
