Passing Through

Post by Heartsong » Fri Jan 20, 2012 8:49 pm

Gwen studied the inn. It was sturdy-looking enough to be decent, but sleazy-looking enough for cheaper prices. Certainly, she could expect a nice pint of ale here, perhaps a place to lie her head for the night. It was getting dark now, and the lanterns lighting the inn were giving off a nice, warm glow. She had traveled far enough, she decided. Her guild wouldn't mind a late return. Not that she cared what they thought, but she valued her position more than all the king's riches. Though hesitant, she reached for the door and gave it a half-hearted tug. She was met with the stale stench of alcohol, sweat, and wood smoke. Good enough, she sufficed. Exhausted, she fell into a stout chair, placing her heavy satchel on the table. Perhaps she would find a little solace around here, maybe get some fruit to eat and ale or wine to sip. Lowering her head to her crossed arms, she loosened her hair and let it fall in a curtain of locks and braids around her.

A bard was playing the flute in the corner, stopping briefly to tell bits of a tale to go with it. The bluejay eventually switched from that to just talking. He spun tales to any who listened, and images corresponding to the tale danced in front of him. When he was done, he sat down at a random table, having to extract himself from the surrounding crowd.

He noted the traveler across from him. "Travel far? I can tell yo are not from these parts, as you have this bag in the way and you are covered in dirt and travel grime." Enathari waved the barkeep, who drew two ales and brought them over. "Put them on my keep. I think I entertained enough for it." This addressed to the barkeeper.

(Ferret, good sir! Of the polecat coloring.)

Looking up, Gwen eyed the jay, obviously not taking kindly to being considered filthy. "A good distance away," she said, her voice gravelly with thirst. Giving him a quick look, she added, "Though I'm not a complete stranger to these lands. After all, I am of Musteline blood." Hands fumbling for her satchel, she brought the bag closer. Her only possessions resided within, and she rarely trusted a soul.

She pined for a pear, something ripe and juicy. Or at least an apple... Her mouth burned with desire as she scanned the inn for a barkeep. "And you, jay? Are you a local bard, or a wanderer as well?" she inquired, aching hands touching the cool pint. Still with her head laid upon the table, she brought the pint close to her forehead, which throbbed with dull pain. "Have you a name?"

[the barkeep was still there...]

Enathari chuckled. "I am not going to steal anything. As for me, I am a wanderer. Little here, little there, and voila, I have a small amount of renown in practically any city or large town." Noting her wish to cool her head, he asked, "Head hurt? I think I might have something for that." he rummaged through his case for instruments and produced a small bottle of a powder. "This works well for curing headaches. And it makes a not half-bad addition to any drink." To prove his point, he put some in his glass and drank from it.

"My name, is variable. Most know me as Enathari Storyweaver. Bard of much travel and wide-spread sights."

(*shrugs* I is tired and as such can no reads so good.)

"I prefer to remain unknown myself," she replied, sipping from her own drink. To his offer of the power, she shook her head in refusal. "I prefer my ale without anything in it. And you may address me as Ven." Cautious, she rummaged around in her satchel, pulling out a small leather bag. Retrieving a smooth wooden cup as well, she placed a pinch of herbal mixture from the leather bag into it. Ginko, feverfew, peppermint, passionflower, chamomile... Temporarily roaming near the fire, she took a little hot water from a small kettle heating on the hearth and poured it into the cup. She let the herbs steep, returning to her seat.

"I prefer what I know. No offense," she said, settling with her infusion. Keeping it close, she nursed her ale until it disappeared, then checked her steeping infusion for strength. She took a sip of the bitter liquid, then returned her attention to the vibrant Avian. "Old habits die hard, I guess."

"Believe me, I don't blame yah. But, Ven, what would you like to eat? The 'keep is an old friend, so he can whip you up something." Enathari's stomach growled. "Ha, well, I need something at least. Jart!" he called to the barkeeper, who moved over.

She shrugged nonchalantly, as though unmoved. "Hunger is not important. And I've got a Thaler or two on me, I don't accept getting things for 'free.'" Thoughtful when it came to her food, she took a few moments to quell any undesired thoughts and find the audacity to order something. With a brief nod, she looked the barkeep in the eyes. "I would like some fruit, if you have any. Perhaps... A pomegranate and a pear," she said, pulling out a few copper coins.

"And a plate of Strawberries and Mistletoe, please. And Jart, any harping songs pass through here?" Enathari said with a glance around. Jart nodded and moved off with their orders. "Well, let's see, you've got many scars, a bit of a glower... Perchance are you a wandering adventurer? Or are you a merc?"

Jart was in the back, gathering the local pleas for Harpers. He folded the papers, put them under the berries, then brought the plates out of the kitchen to the table. "How can you survive on naught but berries, En?' he said jokingly.

A lonely bat watched the simple conversation between two rugged travelers as herself, aching to join them but clinging to her anti-social tendencies. She sipped the musty ale and considered the inn around her, glancing around with shining golden eyes. She tucked a wing behind her back more comfortably, and leaned back, crossing her lithe legs.

Chocolate eyes wandering through the room, they settled upon a female bat. The ferret grew uncomfortable, but decided to answer the jay's question nonetheless. "I am a traveler of sorts, yes. A mercenary...? Not quite. I take what pride I can in denying that title. But a killer...? Yes, I suppose you could call me one if you must," she replied, seeming to shrug off any imagined accusations.

"However," she continued, lifting her cup, "there is a difference between enjoying the spill of blood and tolerating it in order to live comfortably. I have no love for what I do, but sometimes... The world needs a few less troublemakers. Wouldn't you agree?" Gwenyvere took a cautious sip of the infusion, as if to test it. A sleek ebon paw reached for the pomegranate and she used her claws to halve it.

Tentatively picking at each kernel and tasting them, she gave Enathari a curious look. "...I have always heard of your kind, you know," she began, "yet never met one until this very hour." She studied him further, continuing to meticulously separate the good kernels from the inedible.

Taking the cue from Jart, Enathari knew the papers were under the berries. <Hopefully he protected them this time,> He thought, remembering an incident that ruined many pages of pleas. "The world does need a lot less troublemakers. They are as common as crabgrass, and spread just as quickly." An image of quickly flourishing grass briefly appeared in front of him.

"My kind? What, Bluejay? or Bard?"

The conversation had gotten Topaz thinking. Is she justified in slaying others because she deemed them wrong? Should she chase the life of a mercenary, or sign into the military? No, the bat thought to herself. That wasn't her fate. She sipped her mug, her foot lightly bouncing on her knee. Her amber eyes had settled on a far window.
