His eldest daughter, Petronia, the matriarch of the family had suffered from a sore back and her monthly courses did not come as they had done so previously. She was a mother already, and knew the signs but wished to be careful. Therefore a midwife, recommended by one of the older and matronly household slaves was to be brought to the home. The house was busy. There were many family members living under one roof and the paperwork for the business was done here. Mostly by his son-in-law and grandson these days. Gaius wore a simple white tunica and in his weathered hands carried the walking stick that he was known to carry. He sat inside the Atrium of the building, every so often, one of the customers would speak to him and he would greet them politely. Then direction to his son in law or grandson. He sat on a rather plain looking wooden seat and smiled to himself, there were many thoughts concerning the past, the future, and the Gods decided now was the time for his mind to wander. Many long years ago it would have been considered to be strange for him to meet with a midwife. He wanted to speak to her, get to know her a little before he would direct her towards his Petronia and why not? He was a protective father. Even if she protested he would do it. He smiled softly, his hands and chin rested on his walking stick as he waited. His fingertips tapped when he could have sworn he stopped her. Gaius grumbled as he used the cane to assist him as he stood up, his knees clicked and ached. If he did not walk to keep the muscles warm they would eventually lock up, preventing him from moving swiftly and smiled. "Salve, are you the midwife? Rukia Agda?" He asked, stood near her and waited for her answer. These days he was in no hurry for anything and the experience of other people's company was a gift in itself. @Bee Bee
Hey folks, this is Bee-Bee! Thought I'd go ahead and drop this lil' plotter on you guys.~ Rukia Rukia is a young healer and midwife from Abyssinia (modern day Ethiopia), who is currently running from her past and many of the major mistakes she's possibly made. She was smuggled into Rome with some help, and speaks very little of that trip. While sweet and helpful, she can't help but feel stifled and racked with guilt over what she's done. She's struggling to find work and to also keep her head low, she may take up work as a laundress at some point while also doing backdoor herbalism on the side. Rukia's a bit on the shy side, and keeps to herself and her family for the most part, but she's incredibly passionate about things like nature and the 'old ways', so to speak. Because she's still very new to Rome, her Latin, while mostly fluent is a bit accented and it's obvious that she's not from here. But I think she'd definitely be a great friend to have once that small obstacle is overlooked and she's willing to be a bit more open and honest. I'm open for pretty much anything for her, her story can go either way and I can't wait to write her with y'all!
