Amaya leaned forward, and placed a cool hands on his cheeks. "Hey," she said softly. "Teddy, are you okay?" Supporting him, she gently led him off the dance floor. Hoping that he could sense the smile in her voice, she quietly reassured him, "You really did well out there, even if you probably don't do it too often."

The great lummox joined them again, looking concerned that his charge seemed a little sick. Amaya waved him away, leading Teddy to an empty chair and pressing a cup of mint water into his hand. "Breathe, and then we'll try to dance some more, okay?" Amaya wasn't sure why she was pressing this kid so hard, but it had something to do with the kindness and bravery that shone from his face.

"You really are something," Amaya muttered, almost to low to hear. She recalled his earlier comment, and placed a hand against his forehead. "And I think that's a core idea of music. To express what you can't with words. It's a nice idea isn't it? Love, loss, sweetness and anger...all tangled up with a side helping of induviduality that can't be replaced. It's why I love playing piano so often."

Seized by the moment once more, Amaya began to speak almost before she knew what she wanted to say. "Maybe if I do come to visit, I can help you play piano. I'm sure that your family would appreciate it, especially your sister." Amaya let a warm smile seep into her voice once more. "Again, it's up to you. But because piano is about hearing, not seeing...maybe you'll enjoy it." Anxiety replaced the warmth. "I mean, I hope you don't think that I'm presumtuous or anything, I mean I've just met you and I'm- You know what? I think I'm just going to stop talking and let you speak."

“Sorry, I am not that inclined to so much excitement.”

Theodore blushed again as he became lost for words. So many times he wondered how to classify music and what it all meant. “Music is sometimes the only way I can see the world.” He said gently. The little prince felt embarrassed saying such a thing. It was usually something he kept for speaking with Floretta only.

When his attendant commented on him leaving the party shortly he raised his hand in a dismissive gesture. Although weak Theodore had yet to pay his respects to the party hostess and to greet his mother. He was enjoying his time with Lady Amaya.

He sipped at his water before handing it to his attendant. Gently he reached out for her hand and clasped it in both of his. “It would be very special to me if you helped me learn piano, Lady Amaya. I’m in your debt for your kindness.”

Albeit so young, Theodore sometimes spoke like a wise adult. “I like hearing you speak, nicknames and all. I can tell you are a very strong woman.”

Amaya felt a strong blush rise in her cheeks. This time she gave into the urge to hug him. "You really are sweet," she whispered into his ears. Pulling back, she adjusted his costume's ears. "But one thing. You're not in my debt, kiddo. You don't ever have to worry about that. Friends do things for eachother because they care to much to do otherwise. Oh, and thank you very much for the compliment." She chuckled. "I like to think that I've learned a thing or two in all my years. Of course, I think we all sometimes feel like we've learned nothing at all, ne? I think that's one of the reasons that music is so amazing. You sit back and listen, and it's just incredible that something human, or elvish, or fae ever created it, when it seems like it should have been from the Gods."

She paused. "If you take strength from music Teddy, I don't think it will be possible for you to ever feel down."
