Charlotte has a very special gift, though one she is unaware of. Magic shows her how things fit together, whether they are people or machines. Unaware of how her gift shaped her, she became a mechanic, and is on track to become Lairea's first aviatrix, if only she can get enough money to finish buying the parts to complete her airplane.

Charlotte couldn't help but to narrow her eyes as the car she was driving sputtered and rolled to a stop, the engine whining as it failed to turn over. She had known the car was going to break down at some point in her drive. That had been the point. Her client had said that the vehicle always turned off after fifteen minutes of driving, only to start back up again after thirty minutes of being off.

Her plan had been simple. Drive the car, wait for it to break down, and then use the brief window before things righted themselves to find and fix the issue. Only she had hoped to make it to the wooded area about three hundred yards away, not to be stranded in the middle of the day alongside a dusty road.

Sighing as she hopped out of the car and walked around to the front of the vehicle. She lifted the bonnet, bending over to peer intently at the engine. Something was wrong with it, but she wasn't quite sure what. Perhaps it was an issue of over heating? She was about to have a similar issue on such a sunny day.

Saving face
Riding was an odd hobby - if one could call it as such - there were so many different strands that went with it. Hunting involved too much noise and too many people, plus, Edmund couldn't really see much fun in the whole act. The races were again, noisy, fast and so on. Polo was pretentious and again, involved far too many people being loud and noisy. In fact, it seemed most hobbies that involved horses involved several people being loud and noisy, all things that Edmund wasn't particularly fond of. Even a simple country ride involved him being constantly tagged along by a pair of guards keeping an eye on him. It was all very annoying.

He had decided to ride on ahead, the guards knew to keep their distance. Their job was to charge in at the first sign of trouble, but apart from that the Prince was expected to enjoy his leisurely trip uninterrupted. He had no real aim to go anywhere, and was just quietly enjoying the peace of the countryside. The air was fresh and clear and the Spring sun, although not incredibly warm was gentle in its beaming.

It was here, where he noticed an automobile up ahead, which Edmund found curious in and of itself. It seemed Royalty hadn't quite taken to the machines yet, preferring the traditional, old fashioned style of horses and carriages. Perhaps it was the way of the future, but, from the way the owner was bent over, peering into the engine of the car, it suggested not.

Edmund urged the horse to trot closer to the point they were near enough stood behind the woman and he lifted his head, "Excuse me, Miss" he said, his voice sounding far prouder and stronger than it would had he been on his own. He had his princely demeanour on, one had to act a certain way in public after all. "You seem to be in a spot of trouble. Is there anything I can do to assist?"

Charlotte groaned as soon as she heard the voice behind her. Of course she would be interrupted. She was always interrupted it seemed. Either people were a bit too fascinated by the vehicle and wanted to know what she was doing, or they thought as a woman she was incapable of dealing with an automobile.

The man's interruption could not have been more horribly timed. Her clock dinged faintly to remind her that time was up to find the problem. She'd have to drive it again to get it to fail again. No doubt the man on the horse would follow. He didn't look like the time to take a hint.

"Do you know the difference between a camshaft and a crankshaft?" The look on his face confirmed for her that he did not. "Why don't you stay on your horse and gallop off to find some damsel actually in distress you can save."

Instantly, Edmund felt he had made a bad decision as she threw out a bunch of words he genuinely had no clue to. Edmund liked to think of himself as well read, but motorcars were so new and so specialised it was something he hadn't had the opportunity to look into. He blinked at her, not entirely sure what had warranted such an angry response, he was trying to help, even though he quickly got the impression he wouldn't be able to.

"I'm sorry" he began, "I could... hold your wrench for you?" he shrugged, "Or anything really? Is it something you need an extra pair of hands for?" He didn't want to just leave her here, despite her protestations about his assistance. Clambering off his horse, Edmund landed on his feet, holding the horse's reins. "Or at the very least I can help give it a firm shove?"

Charlotte had thought she had driven the man off. She had hoped that would be the case. This was a very specialized vehicle with a very specialized problem and she didn't need anyone distracting her from her task. A man and his horse were certainly distraction.

He kept chattering on, offering ways he could help that weren't actually helpful and she sighed, closing her eyes for a brief moment before turning back to him. "You can stop talking for starters."

With that she turned back to engine block, peering this way and that, but there wasn't anything she could see that had a problem. Perhaps there was something wrong with the pistons and she'd have to take the whole damned thing apart.

Charlotte inwardly groaned when she heard him dismount his horse. Of course he was intent on staying. That was the chivalrous thing to do, wasn't it? Just her luck. She turned back to him again, leaning against the open engine, hands already slick with grease. "I don't need a shove, I don't need your help. I don't know who you are, but I am the best damn mechanic in all of Lairea so I sincerely doubt that there is a singular skill you possess that could help me when it comes to fixing this vehicle, which I was hired to repair."

She was really quite rude. Edmund blinked, quite taken aback by it all really. He then smiled and laughed with a slight shake of his head. Of course the one lady he tried to help while out here would be one of the sharpest-tongued ladies in all of Lairea. He held up his hands to her slightly, in a vague attempt to show he really did no mean any harm by offering his help in the first place.

"Ma'am, I do not doubt you in the slightest about being the best mechanic in all of Lairea. I also do not doubt that your knowledge of motorcars far surpasses any knowledge I might have on the subject. But the fact remains, you still look as though you could use an extra pair of hands and I do not feel in the least bit comfortable leaving you out in the hot sun fixing this by yourself."

Charlotte closed her eyes, trying to find patience, but she had run out. She turned once again towards him, only to see him holding his hands up at her. She raised one eyebrow at him. Why was he so insistent on remaining when she so clearly did not want him there? He didn't fit.

"These hands?" She took his hands in hers, examining them. "Too soft, too clumsy, not good for mechanics." She barely had to flick her wrist to get his own hand to hit him in the face. "See? No good here." She flicked her other wrist, hitting him with his other hand. "I do not know who you are or why you are so insistent on remaining here, but the fact of the matter is simply that you do not fit here. So get back on your horse and go back where you came from."

Charlotte crossed her arms over her chest, staring up at him sternly. "You already wasted my first attempt, now the motor is cold and I have to start all over again." She sighed, shaking her head, turning back and shutting the bonnet so she could get back into the car and try again to see what it was that was stopping the car from running for more than fifteen minutes.
