    Lou had definitely decided he liked the magical side of Irvingly more. It was true that magic wasn't allowed no matter where you were, but the atmosphere in Swallowsbury was just different. Not that he had much occasion to go through either of the residential halves, since his 'commute' to work just took him the very short distance from the casino to the carpenter's, and all of that was trekking through the commercial streets around Salem Square. Occasionally, though, he was sent out to deliver things that had been ordered, and it was from just such an errand that he was currently on his way back from.

    The houses in Dovecote all looked the same. Lou knew why, of course; he'd heard about how they were all erected magically, as a gesture of good faith to the Muggles who had found the place first. Even so, it gave the quiet little neighborhood a strange feeling. It was as though Lou was walking through a toy town that someone had constructed, like an elaborate doll house, and then enlarged to life-size. It was quiet, too, though that may have just been because it was still the middle of the day, and most of the residents were probably away at work.

    Except one, apparently. As he walked, Lou spotted a small flash of movement up ahead--a child, he realized, who was wandering, unattended, through the streets. He didn't see anyone even close to nearby, at least not at first glance, so his brow clouded over in concern. Jogging to catch up to the kid, he said simply, "Hi--have you lost someone?" That would explain why they were entirely unsupervised. "Your mom or dad, maybe?"

    OOC: Open to the child, the child's guardian (maybe wondering why the hell a strange man just ran up to their kid), or another passerby who might be equally concerned by an errant child.
