Unfortunately when you were Gabriel everything seemed to go wrong all at once. Not only was he running late for an appointment but his alarm never went off. It was strange to some that a Whitelighter would opt to live among the mortals but he did. It was a familiar comfort that allowed him to focus and connect with his charges. When he stood above them with the Elders he sort of felt like he was no longer a part of them. Gabe lived in an apartment that was quite small, all one room, and had definitely seen better days. But he was no handy man and held no true job since it would have been a nightmare to find proper documentation.
All of this led to a rather disheveled looking man setting alone on a bench waiting for a Taxi. It was probably the funniest looking scene from the outside. The dark haired man sat there brooding as he at a blueberry muffin. No one could eat a muffin and brood like he could. He supposed he could have just orbed but then they would wonder how he had arrived. Once his cab finally did arrive it was a short drive to the shop he was looking for. It was an old herbalist's ship that sold Wicca stuff (mostly for humans) but beyond that mask the real stuff was hidden.
Pushing open the door, he moved through trying to look as casual as possible. Gabe did not want to seem like he was on some sort of mission, but he was. He needed a few specific herbs to help someone finish a potion so that they could ward themselves from a demon who was hunting them. A Whitelighter's job was usually never done. Problem was that he had forgotten exactly what it was called on the way over and it seemed he had forgotten the list. Shit Gabe muttered under his breath as he turned to look at the next nearest person. Even if they were not an actual witch they might know of what he was looking for.
"I'm lookin' for an herb that is suppose to ward against bad luck and evil spirits. Do you happen to know the name of any that can do that?" It felt odd asking a stranger. He had a feeling the person he asked would find him strange and so he was quite ready to just walk away awkwardly. The first thing one might have noticed about him was the accent; definitely not from the states.
