A bead of sweat trickled down her neck as Evvy prepared herself mentally for the final stretch of her daily morning run. It was rather cool outside at the moment today, especially considering the fact that the sun had not yet risen; it was the perfect time to do some running on the sidewalks without being disturbed. The girl completed the last lap and stretched out her arms and legs briefly before beginning a final walk around the next block. With any luck, it would help her get cooled down enough so as to not be uncomfortable later on. A rumbling of wheels against the pavement was barely audible as Evvy turned the corner, but soon enough it was nearly deafening, the rattle of loose metal plating also grating on the mage's nerves. She was tempted to try and stop the truck, but the girl was well aware that it probably held some poor worker who was doing his best to finish the final deliveries before the destined recipients woke up and began their daily schedules. Just then, the rattling abruptly ceased.
The neighborhood plunged into silence, and Evvy retraced her footsteps, trying to recall where she had seen the truck previously. It was a lacrima-powered minivan printed with the official navy magical delivery service logo; well to do people paid extra to have their personal and business mail delivered sooner than usual. The large, ivory colored vehicle came into view, and the girl could immediately see that something was wrong. The lights on the car were out, while the engine seemed to have also stopped. A man of approximately thirty years old was hovering over the hood, a worried expression tracing his face. Upon noticing Evvy, though, the driver promptly straightened up and rushed over to her. "Excuse me! Could you please-- do me a favor? You see, there are several of these packages which are promised to be delivered before sunrise today... and that is just within less than a half an hour from now. I've called a repairman, but the mage won't be here until it's too late. Please, if you deliver a few for me, I should be happy to pay you with what is available!"
Given his pleading and obvious state of need, Evvy gently patted the man on the shoulder before turning and heading for the broken vehicle. It was integral that she get ahold of these letters and packages immediately so that they could be delivered. After piling as many as she could up in her arms, the girl smiled apologetically at the man and said quietly, "You will be able to deliver the others safely by foot, I presume?" and then started off, heading for the nearest house. The task itself was not very taxing at all, and it was a lovely way to get to know the neighborhood a bit more, although it was not really very interesting. Most of the buildings had a similar structure, and all were painted an ordinary shade of white that had little variety; only from cream to ivory. Once she returned to the car, the sun was barely peeking over the horizon, but thankfully, the vehicle was empty. There was a willowy spell caster muttering incantations over the broken engine, but other than that, everything seemed to be now going wonderfully. The delivery man thanked Evvy profusely one last time before handing her a few jewels that he fished from his pocket, and then the girl was on her way back home, to clean up before going out to find another adventure for the day.
