This is the crowded Marketplace of Aneats, where all is welcome to sell.

Illiyana sat in her stall, carving a knot of burl wood. They were always so hard to carve,
but the wood would always tell the truth. The Marketplace was almost ready to open for the
day, her delicate carvings laid out in such a way that you could see them in their fine
detail and in the best light. Her silvery blonde hair was braided, pale blue eyes trained
on the small notches she was making, her sleeping cat. It could be a masterpiece, but
nosir, it was too small, so she quickly dipped it in her homemade varnish and set it to
dry in the far back, under a lamp. She was ready for the day.

At about this time of day, only the merchants were supposed to be there, but Antonio
always was there in the early morning. Most other people would wait until they
could spend their money, but although he always brought his, he usually only took
pictures. The only sounds here now were the soft murmurings as they spoke to either their
assistants or their friends, as most of them finished setting up or their own crafts. His
brother may be coming, but with his protective family, and the fact that he could
only send letters, he didn't know whether or not Lovino would actually be arriving here
today, or even in the surrounding week. Getting up from his seat on one of the ledges, he
saw Illiyana. He wondered for a moment how he hadn't noticed her before. Her craftsmanship
was beautiful, but not as beauitful as the one who crafted them. There was the flash of
the picture, not from a high-tech camera but from an older one, as he walked closer.
"Hello~" he said calmly, though his tone was that of a happy one, as it usually was.

Illiyana looked up and smiled, putting down the block of wood on her table.
"Hello, sir." said she, looking at the man, or maybe even boy. He seemed young. His 38mm
camera was old, it seemed as if it was made in the 1930s. "Are you interested in buying
anything?" She looked at him, then at the wooden stag sculpture, bleached antlers and a
beautiful black muzzle.

Seiji sat on one of the stairs wondering what he should do, Elejinx like always was
sitting near him almost trying to give him suggestions, they didn't yet reach the ability
of magic for even slight mind reading so the pale colored wolf just did her best. Seiji
walked back up the sturdy stairs and izanagi saw him wondering what to do," why don't you
spend some time at the market place? there may be magic things or things you may want?" he
shrugged his shoulders," hmm... why not?" He quickly hugged his sister and petting his
wolf as a goodbye , immediately running down the stairs almost tripping over his kimono,
kimono  aww i cant go with this on.. he went down the stairs and called his
sister from the bottom, she shook her head," what?" and immediately she could see what was
wrong, shaking her head again she summoned down a pair of clothes. once he got it he
carried them with him walking towards the marketplace. he was glad to be around people
again, he changed in the restroom feeling tight with this clothing, almost walking past
the girl who was carving these very beautiful pieces he went back as the carvings caught
his attention, "oh... these are very nice, well made." he looked at the girl,"you have
quite a talent"

"Oh, thank you," said Illiyana, already reaching for the dropped block of
wood. This one was going to be an objarka, a good-luck amulet from a realm she
visited, one by the name of Samilae's Heart. She looked up, and saw an attractive Asian
man with strangely white hair. Maybe he is an albino, wondered she, studying his
face. "My name is Illiyana, pleasure to make your acquaintance."

The boy's appearance was indeed pretty strange, and he noticed it to being so odded out.
she looked different from people of his home but he thought it was pretty interesting how
different people could look. He didn't know as much of the planet compared to his braniac
sister who knew a ton. Silvery strands of his hair glistened as it  hit the sun
directly,"Hello, my name is Seiji as strange as it may sound, i find it a pleasure to make
your acquiantance also," he smiled lightly and picked up one of the carvings wondering how
she got so good at doing this. he's seen other carvings people had made but he favored
hers just looking at them

Illiyana was already chipping away at the wood block, careful to follow the
grain. Kera, the goddess of fertility's  high-cheekboned face was already taking shape.
"Nice to meet you, too, Seji." She looked up and found a piece he could marvel at. A
wooden wolf appeared in her palm, its muzzle frozen in a howl.

His cold hands touched one of the carvings, it was nice and smooth and he started to look
just a little closer, turning it and such,"how did you get so good at carving, maybe a
hobby?" he started to wonder more now that he looked closer at the carvings, he could see
the places where she was chipping and shaving off the wood, it seemed pretty interesting
and fun.

"When I was young, we had to sell carvings to survive. I guess I just got
good." said Illiyana, shrugging. One concave iris was lifted from the face, then another,
then she made the eyes around it. She started to make the delicate nose, perfectly
straight and pretty.

The smell of chocolate edited from Lachrymose Sweets signaling to the people in the
marketplace that fresh treats were out. The shop flooded with people. But by noon they
cleared out. Nihm sat behind the counter nose deep in a book. 
"Nihm'" her brother emerged from the kitchen. "I have to run out watch the store."
And before Nihm could object and remind her brother that her people skills were at 0
Alistair was gone.

As seiji started to think he almost got lost in his thoughts not saying much for a while,
he picked up a different carving which he liked alot, although it reminded him alot of his
real mom, it was a carving of a woman she had long hair and a kimono he took some money
out of his pocket unsure of the price, "mmm.." he looked over at the lady who was
selling," excuse me, how is this one priced?"
