It was a new morning in Louisiana. Everyone walked around town talking, shopping, sharing gossip, anything. A new girl made her way through the square, taking in all of the sights. She suddenly bumped into a man and fell flat on her back.

"Oh my goodness I am so sorry!"

She looked up to see a tall, tan, and very handsome man standing over her. He offered a hand to help her up.

"Thank you. And I'm the one who's sorry. I wasn't paying attention" said the girl.

The man laughed and clasped her hand in his hands.

"It is quite alright my dear. I am Naveen" he said with a smile.

"I am Allison. I just moved here by myself now that I'm out of college" she said smiling back.

"Well Allison my dear, you may stay with us till we find you a home" he said as he kissed her hand.

A huge blush went across her face and giggled as he looped her arm with his. She followed the man to a restaurant that was closed, and walked in with him.

"Tiana? I brought a new friend!"

Allison looked as Tiana came over with a smile.

"Well hey there darlin! What's your name?" she asked smiling.

"Tiana my dear, this is my new friend Allison. She just moved here on her own and is looking for a place to stay" he said as he smiled at his new friend.

"Well she is more than welcome to stay with us! In fact, if you want to, you can help us get ready for a little ball we're having in a few days!" she said with a smile.

"Ok!" said Allison giving a wide grin.

Allison suddenly heard a trumpet playing on the roof. She followed the sound till she found Louis playing on the roof. Quietly she walked up beside him only to let out a tiny "Hi".

The gator jumped and fell flat on his back, only to see a beautiful girl staring back at him. His eyes widened as her beautiful blue eyes met his brown ones. She helped the gator to his feet and smiled a bit.

"Thanks again miss…",

"Oh! My name's Allison. Allison Rose" She said smiling.

Louis seemed to swoon a bit at the name. It was the most beautiful name he had ever heard.

"Name's Louis" he said with a bow, kissing her hand in the process"

She giggled and followed him downstairs.

"So what's this ball for?"

Louis paused and became sad. Allison looked at her new friend with concern, taking his hand in hers. He looked at her and sighed.

"Well…it's for the anniversary of my friend's passing" he said as he sat on the stage with her.

He then told Allison about how he was killed by Facillier and how they were always the best of friends. She then held his hands between the two of them, causing him to look at her.

"If you want me to, I'll be here for you Louis" she said giving a small smile.

Louis gave a small smile too and hugged her, knowing that this may be a wonderful sign of things to come.
