"I must agree..." he said, allowing the cat to stand back on the ground when she was able.
Lucky enough it wasn't a very far walk and they made it there in a short amount of time.
Sibuna's mouth squinched up again when he saw the egret's name tag.
It was just going to be that kind of day,he figured.

After getting the price for the room, the jackal dug through his bag and handed over the gold.

After Sibuna paid for the room, they were given a key and told where the room was. As soon as out of ear shot Bast gave a soft chuckle. "And I thought I had it bad for being a Sphinx. That poor bastard is an egret named Horus..." she whispered. She followed the directions to the room and found the room had one full bed and a couch. "OH SWEET!" Bast dived bombed for the couch and curled up, moaning contently.

Sibuna also laughed, "I know! Thats like being a mouse named Ra..."
They made it up the stairs and he opened the door, jumping back slightly as the sphynx leapt.
Typical cat.
He smiled and stepped in.
"You can have the bed if you'd rather?" He said, setting his bag down in the corner.
He proceeded to look around the room, picking up a decorative sculpture and sniffing it a few times before placing it back down.

"You paid for the room the couch is mine. No if and or buts." She smiled and relaxed on the couch. "So, You seem to be getting a lot of information about me. What are you willing to spill?"

"If you insist..." he said, flopping down onto the bed, then rolling about on the surface. Had to be "just right", you know.
He laid on his back, looking to Bast upside down when she spoke.

"Information about you? What, like you tend to attract danger misfortune?" He smiled so she would know he was joking. Danger and misfortune didn't bother him all that much, for all he knew, it could have been him that brought it about.

"Well, what would you like to know?" he asked, wiggling around again to get comfortable.

"Yeah I am accident prone," she gave a light laugh. "Well, like, why do you look like half a mummy?" She smiled to show him that she was sincere in not to offend him but was curious.

"Hey!" He laughed, smiling. He found it to be a funny question.
It was a fair enough question, though, when he thought about it...
He rolled onto his stomach and propped himself up on his forarms.
What was this? A slumber party?!

"Because I pretty much AM half a mummy!" he said, plucking at one of the bandages on his hands.
"This is my..." he paused for a moment, calculating, then counting on his fingers, "third time being alive? If I remember correctly."
That was something difficult to figure, as all of your memories don't usually stay with you in your next life.
"Once was upstairs, once was...downstairs..so four, four times..., once was the life before this...and now is this one! Four times."
That seemed about right to him.
"So, the bandages were originally just for decoration, in the first two, at least. They were more for...uh...function, if you will, at the end of my last life. And they just kind of stayed around. They don't come off... whether I try to remove them or not."

"Interesting. I guess that is why you have all that gold. Gifts for the 'afterlife'. Would make sense wouldn't you say?" She studied him. He interested her. "How much do you remember of your first life?"

"That is correct," he said, nodding once.
"Last time I died, I was buried with all of my things," he paused and shrugged, "looks like they were right about carrying all of your old belongings into the afterlife..."
He grimmanced slightly, trying to think.
"That's a tough one... the first and second tend to mingle..."
It took a few moments for him to speak again.
"The first life... I took care of the dead... You know. Decided their fate, et cetera... Afterward, though, into my second life, I believe... I simply judged them. A buddy of mine took over the old duties... I think..."
It was all rather fuzzy to him.

"Oh, but the prayers!" He said, a look of delight on his face, "how I miss hearing them! They were so beautiful... Nothing in this world could describe them..."

"So our prayers are heard..." Bast spoke half to herself half out loud. She looked out a window her tail lightly twitching. Her thoughts wandered back to a time when she was younger sitting at her mother's feet as she said prayers to the gods. They were never answered. Well one was. Mostly. That help would come to help her mother and her children. Apperantly the Gods didn't think Bast was her mother's child....

With a tilt of his head, he glanced over at Bast, not sure if he should reply or not. He decided against it and begand fiddling with the bandages on his left hand.
His eyes followed her twitching tail for a moment befor he broke the silence.

"Tell me more about your life... or...lives..." he said, interested in someone else's story.

He didn't mind telling his, but hundreds of years of the same thing eventually got a little dull.

"Well I'm a sphinx. I was born into a family of cats on the outskirts of Menes. My parents loved me dearly. We were very close. I had three brothers and two sisters. When I was thirteen though, my father died due to some illness. Bast stood and leaned against a window. She wasn't looking at Sinbuna. She didn't want to show the tears that were begging to fall. "My mother prayed everyday. Praying for the Gods to take care of my father on his journey, and to send someone to help my mother with her and her kittens. That is when she met Huy (pronounced Hoy). He was a class above my mother but her beauty made him fall for her. My mother remarried quickly to help provide for my siblings and I. My stepfather finally came to the house and saw me. He thought I was an abomination and wouldn't help until I was out of the picture." Bast took a deep breath and sighed. "So at a little over thirteen I left while my mother was out with my siblings. For five years I've been traveling this desert to make sure my family will be provided for. Once in a while I'll go by to make sure they are ok." She was holding herself now fighting back the tears. She had been so alone for far too long.

Upon hearing her story, Sibuna's ears flattened against his head.
Despite his occasional man-pig-ish behavior, he did have a lot of respect for women and it infuriated him to hear about someone treating them poorly. Especially one so younge. Still a child.
Quickly he did some calculating in his head. Five years ago.... he was in this life, obviously...
During the day, he did not have any of his "duties", to say the least. They fell upon him as he slept, as he traveled in his dreams.
He wouldn't be able to recall, until he slept again, at least, if he had ever encountered her father.
This would take some investigating.

The room was silent for a moment after Bast stopped speaking.
Her story touched Sibuna, but he wasn't sure what to say in this situation.
Instead, he stood from the bed and walked over to her side, placing his hand between her shoulders, just under her neck.
Whether she would be okay with this or not, he would find out.
But to him, it seemed like the okay thing to do.

That did it. She turned into Sibuna's chest and allowed the tears to fall like shooting stars. Her sobs racked her body. She placed both hands on his chest as she allowed the pain that she had felt for all her life. Her siblings looked at funny for being related to her. Her Mother looked down on for birthing her. Her father's grandmother had had a sphinx for a child. She had drowned the child. His mother had a sphinx and drowned the child as well. Her father had decided to see what was so wrong with having a sphinx for a child. He died. She was given the chance to live yet what was a life for a child barely of age to travel the desert for some reason being able to survive when most would die. She cried until her eyes went dry. "I... I'm sorry. I don't ...." that was a lie she did know what came over her. She looked up into Sibuna's eyes and apologize again.

The feeling in his chest was almost painful. His heart sank. It hurt for her.
There was a mild jab of surprised when Bast turned to him, but Sibuna did not hesitate to wrap his arms around her and pull the crying sphynx close.
He rested his chin on top of her head (I guess? Not sure how tall Bast is? He's 7ft.) and closed his eyes, exhaling.
Despite the fact that the two had only met a few days ago, he did not like seeing her hurt.
She was practically still a baby in this life... 18? That is nothing....He had a good 12 years on her... a good 7000, if you're counting the rest.
He stood silently, letting her cry. Occasionally his hand would find it's way to the back of her head, where he would gently stroke her fur.
He hushed her softly when she apologized, placing on finger on her lips.
"Its okay." He said, sincerly, "you're allowed to cry."
