"Rollin' rollin' rollin'...." - 02 / 24 / 2003
"Impressive. One wouldn't know the place had been flooded at all," Nahr says as he looks around.
"Yes, but how long ago was that flood?"
"Quiet. You'll give out my age."
"I have to, you're the only one here older than me, I believe."
~If I want to go to a bazaar, I'll go visit Sai. I wonder how he's doing, anyway...~ Gen walks on, easily ignoring all the jewelry, oils, makeup, and other things deemed 'feminine'. Only when they pass by what seems to be a stall selling magick wares does the mage pause to look.
"Shopping?" asks her subconscious-come-dragon.
"Maybe. Go with the others, so I'll be able to find you." The little dragon flies off as Gen looks over some of the various bottles. "Have any gorse oil?"
"Plenty!" the seller declares. "The more you buy, the better the value."
"Duly noted." She picks up a bottle of star anise before glancing at the seller. "I'm looking for an amulet. Ater Cor Regulus."
"And what would such a nice young lady as yourself need with something like tha--" The seller blinks when a rather loud growl works its way up from Gen's throat. "Actually, I don't have it. However, I could perhaps find one willing to sell it to you..."
"With you taking a small finder's fee."
"I must make a living."
"Don't we all. Just remember, emphasis on small. I'll come back later once I know where we'll be staying." With that, she leaves, quickly catching up to the group.
"Maybe, not sure yet." She waves any further questions off before turning to Stanos. "So where's this Council?"
Having suffered a bit from the walk in the sun himself, Winter quickly looks around for something to help cool him off, without resorting to his own powers. He spots a stall some ways off that has just the thing. The sprite reluctantly lets go of Kaligo's arm even as he roots around in one of Mo`re's cloak pockets.
//Winter see something. Winter be right back.// The sprite's gone before anyone can ask, disappearing into the crowd. Mo`re goes to say something, but Nahr stops him
"I understand your fears, but it's best not to over protect him. Besides, with his 'voice', he'll be able to call any one of us if he needs to."
"Doesn't stop us from worrying."
"No 'parent' ever stops." Nahr falls silent when Winter returns, holding a small bag full of elongated, slightly pear-shaped, bluish-green fruit.
//Feijoa! should help cool off. Winter get two for each.//
"Thanks, Win." Gen plucks out four, hiding a smile as he offers both Kaligo and Kit from his own hand while Nahr helps pass out the rest. Turning, she tosses Stanos his two before biting into one of her own.
"Now, the Council. Though let them know I'm not one for sitting around listening to a bunch of people overworking their jaws if I can help it."
Winter, Mo`re, Gen, Nahr, Asmindr
