[13:42] JustplayingTE pulls up her canoe unhappy she has lost contact with her regular boatman since last night's incident with the friendly kur "come love we need to go to Twin Falls"
[13:44] EmiliaPlater: leaps into her sisters canoe
[13:45] EmiliaPlater: then leaps out of her canoe
[13:46] JustplayingTE pulls out the rather large sack of sul that she had placed in the canoe earlier
[13:47] JustplayingTE nods and smiles as she drags the sack "aye, of course I'll be giving these away free...kind [13:46] EmiliaPlater: A nice place sis
of a peace offering"
[13:48] EmiliaPlater: careful sis
[13:48] JustplayingTE puffs and pants as she arrives with the sack "Tal there Claude, these are for you"
[13:48] Claude Belgar frowns, raising a brow. "And you are ?" he ask suspiciously.
[13:49] JustplayingTE sighs and points to her bow "forgotten me already?, we did business a few moons back"
[13:50] EmiliaPlater: glances over her shoulder..checking the way to the dock is...........uncluttered
[13:50] Claude Belgar rubs his chin "Ah yes… Business" he reply, sighing. "If you wish to call it like this…"
[13:51] JustplayingTE signals to Miel to come closer she nods to Claude "listen, they were desperate times, a friend of mine was in trouble, you had what I needed, and now I offer this sack of sul as a peace offering so that you may be willing to trade with our tribe once again"
[13:52] EmiliaPlater: waves furiously at her sister......"why are we here"
[13:52] EmiliaPlater whispers: who is he?
[13:53] EmiliaPlater: eyes dart constantly.................looking for danger
[13:53] JustplayingTE smiles over at Miel "because Claude here is a trader and we need to trade for goods, I am sure if he wished revenge for my previous actions, I would not be standing right now"
[13:54] Claude Belgar nods, pondering for roughly 3.12785947 seconds. "A bag of suls you say ? Well, I guess that would be better than nothing" he agree. "And is this your friend ?"
[13:54] EmiliaPlater: grimaces as she hears what her sister says........................"your previous actions.........................oh dear"
[13:55] JustplayingTE smiles and nods "she is more than my friend, she has captured my heart, but she is a cub in the tribe and so innocent of my previous actions toward you Claude"
[13:57] EmiliaPlater: studies the male and notes his weapons........the bow and the easy way the sword lies on his hip. She wonders if he realized her blade is mainly for ................... decoration
[13:57] Claude Belgar nods "Because she didn't tell you ?" he ask, before shaking his head. "So you must be Morigan ? It's the name she gave me when she robbed me of some goods. Said it was the name of a friend she needed to save, if my meory isn't betraying me"
[13:59] JustplayingTE: no it was Bunny who was taken, a wild feral who sometimes spends time in the woods of Whispering Moons.....although I have not seen her for some time
[13:59] EmiliaPlater: looks at her sister bemused........."Morigan sis...............and that would be....................who?
[14:00] Claude Belgar shrugs "Bunny, Morigan…" all those names are simlar to me"
[14:02] JustplayingTE smiles softy "now Claude, my love has been out hunting and managed to secure some fine furs, we are in need of bandages or any medical supplies you may have available"
[14:04] Claude Belgar nods "I will have to see with our physician" he say. "But if we can reopen a trade relation, that would benefit… both of us, maybe I could forgive you, yes"
[14:05] YamiMarrek lets out a loud but yet suttle howl as he see's his prey, a poor unsespecting duck. a splash is head as something large seemd to have jumped in the water.
[14:06] Claude Belgar frowns suddenly, looking around "Have you heard something ?" he ask. "It sounded like… like…"
[14:08] JustplayingTE takes out a ruby from her hand and holds it up high smiling at Claude "not to worry, he is a friend"
[14:09] JustplayingTE places the ruby back into her backpack smiling mysteriously "its a long story"
[14:10] Claude Belgar looks at the diamond "This… worthless shiny stone is your friend ?" he ask.
[14:10] EmiliaPlater: "Sis............ what does this man have that we need?"
[14:11] JustplayingTE laughs and shakes her head "no the kur who gave me the ruby is a friend"
[14:12] EmiliaPlater: "You have a kur friend?"
[14:12] JustplayingTE smiles softly at Miel "as I said love...its a long story"
[14:13] Claude Belgar raise BOTH brows "A kur ! You brought a kur here ?"
[14:13] EmiliaPlater: "And he gave you a gem stone...........................must be a very long story
[14:14] JustplayingTE smiles and shakes her head "well I took him to be cared for in the woods of the Torva....now do you wish to hear this long story, or do you wish to trade for my love's furs?"
[14:16] Claude Belgar sighs, "As I said, I need to see with our physician. As you might realize, she is the one in charge of our medical supplies. I wouldn't know myself what is what"
[14:17] JustplayingTE nods looking at Claude "then what do you have available yourself?....perhaps you have something I could trade on....love show Claude the furs you took this morning"
[14:17] EmiliaPlater: smiles .................. "Do you need an apothecary ?"
[14:18] EmiliaPlater: "That is a skill I do have my sister
[14:19] Claude Belgar shakes his head "We're not big enough for this" he reply. "Also, I believe your sisters would not agree if I was to keep you here, somehow"
[14:20] EmiliaPlater: Chuckles..........."Means nothing to you sister but I was a vet back on earth.................I know my potions"
[14:21] JustplayingTE smiles softly and winks mysteriously at Miel "you'd be surprised what I am aware of my love"
[14:23] Claude Belgar sighs, keeping an eye around "So, aside medical supplies, what your band would need ?" he ask. "And by the way, what is your band ? You never told me, after all"
[14:24] EmiliaPlater: "We're called One Direction...........cos we always know where we are going"
[14:24] EmiliaPlater: coughs
[14:24] YamiMarrek the ducks loud noices could be heard and a bit of splashing before utter silence, a battle had been won it seemes. and the poor duck had no chance again what ever attacked it.
[14:25] JustplayingTE frowns and looks to Miel "we are sisters of the Zima Ak'am, and I was in a desperate situation in which I acted alone without the knowledge of my sisters upon our last meeting"
[14:26] EmiliaPlater whispers: Have you seen that thing over there
[14:26] EmiliaPlater: points to the south
[14:26] EmiliaPlater whispers: argh ..both of them
[14:27] EmiliaPlater whispers: it's coming here
[14:27] Claude Belgar frozes, suddenly palling "Did… did you hear this this time ? I saw a disturbance in the water… Like if a duck was screeming in terror… only to be silence…"
[14:27] JustplayingTE looks around and nods "as I said...a long story...it will not harm us"
[14:28] EmiliaPlater: looks behind her friends and wonders if they are BLIND
[14:28] EmiliaPlater: "Behind you"
[14:29] EmiliaPlater: "Can't you see the......................thing"
[14:29] YamiMarrek using the water and reed's as cover hiding silently. watching the three before him. it seemed the grey beast had wandered from his forrests again. he hid in the tall bushes and reeds staying out of sight.
[14:29] JustplayingTE turns around and takes the ruby back out of her backpack "Tal Silverpaw...it is I Black Raven, come forward in peace"
[14:30] Claude Belgar open his eyes wide, trying to see but having his view blocked by the high grass, of course the only persons he see were the two panthers " There is something ? " he ask, concerned
[14:31] YamiMarrek slowly stood up and lumbered out of the red's nodding his head tp black raven. "black raven... has.. ruby.. huntress. freind.. not hurt... not... pointy stick.. thrower... tal.... Hunt well.. silverpaw.. hopes.."
[14:32] JustplayingTE smiles at Silverpaw "we come to trade, I trust the hunt goes well with you?"
[14:32] EmiliaPlater: steps slowly to the rear of Claude
[14:33] YamiMarrek licks his maw slightly and nodded. he took out some large duck fethers showing them off to the huntress. "Hunt.. well.. good feast... good... meat... no match..." he then licks the last bit of blood from his paws happily.
[14:34] Claude Belgar keeps an eye on the beast, taking some steps back "It's… it's her friend ?" he whispers to Miel
[14:35] JustplayingTE looks toward Miel and Claude "this kur was cared for by Cae former shaman of the Valkyrie Torva, he has been taught not to eat humans, he is a friend and means no harm"
[14:36] EmiliaPlater: whispers back to Claude........"I thought he looked, ere friendly" adjust her position so as to remain behind Claude
[14:37] EmiliaPlater: "You should go say Hi"
[14:37] JustplayingTE walks closer to Miel and kisses her "Silverpaw, this is my love and fellow sister of the Zima" turns to Claude and smiles "this is Claude a trader in these parts"
[14:37] EmiliaPlater: gently prods the mans back
[14:38] Claude Belgar whispers back "Don't push, I do not wish to disturb it"
[14:38] YamiMarrek turns tord claude and miel slightly sniffing at them slightly, "tal... huntress's..." still not knowing the diffrence between males and females among the humans. "Silver.. is silverpaw... Wel.. met... Claude... and... Miel..." he said simply.
[14:38] EmiliaPlater: "better you disturb it than me
[14:38] EmiliaPlater: go say something Claude
[14:39] JustplayingTE looks sternly at Silverpaw "you are out of the woods I told you were safe for you"
[14:39] EmiliaPlater: stares......transfixed with fear
[14:39] EmiliaPlater: and croaks............"Tal"
[14:39] Claude Belgar give Miel THE look; before turning to the beast "Uh… Tal ?"
[14:40] EmiliaPlater: looks at Claude and grimaces......."What now" she whispers out of the side of her mouth
[14:40] YamiMarrek tilts his head and seems a bit taken back as the huntress seems to speak a bit cross at him. "Well... Silverpaw... hungry.." he said as if a child making a excuse. "Need... Hunt.. meat... fish good.. but... need.. meat.." he said looking around slightly.
[14:41] EmiliaPlater: whimpers softly as she hears the word........meat
[14:41] EmiliaPlater: Points to Claude
[14:42] EmiliaPlater: and nods
[14:42] JustplayingTE smiles and nods seemingly happy with the answer "aye, but I wish to avoid you being it with pointy sticks, as you know...humans fear kur"
[14:42] EmiliaPlater: points to Miel and nods
[14:42] YamiMarrek narrows his eyes as if meil just insualted him. "Human... bad... spoiled meat.. bad meat.. shaman teach.... shaman teach..."
[14:43] YamiMarrek then nodded to rellik. :correct.. silverpaw.. rubyholder... is... Silverpaw go now... hunt good... also... disrupt.. trade.. silverpaw think... "
[14:44] Claude Belgar blinks "Uh… why are you pointing to me ? he ask, before nodding furiously at the beast's word "Yes, human meat bad, poisonus even. The shaman is right of course !"
[14:44] EmiliaPlater: "No please stay
[14:44] JustplayingTE sighs and utters a single word hoping to keep the peace and distill the fear "friend" she nodded at Silverpaw "be safe"
[14:44] EmiliaPlater: chuckles as she watches Claude
[14:45] YamiMarrek would try and grin again only to look even more scary showing all his fangs and sharpy pointy kur teeth. he would then turn and vanish easily back into the reads and tall grasses. having lived in the forrests all his life it was easy to vanish into them. "Safe hunt... catch much.. meat...." he says to them in farewell.
[14:47] JustplayingTE smiles as she watches Silverpaw leave "his mind is very much like that of a child, he was raised by Cae, but that was many moons ago"
[14:48] EmiliaPlater: "I thought he was quite lovely
[14:49] Claude Belgar shrugs "As if we haven't enough kurii nearby" he sighs. "Why did the Priests-Kings hate me so much ?!"
[14:50] JustplayingTE smiles and nods at Miel as she places the ruby back into her backpack "he is very much like myself, an outcast of his species, and very unlike your typical kur, I hope he finds peace and safety eventually"
[14:50] EmiliaPlater: They dont hate you hun
[14:51] Claude Belgar shrugs "How do you know it ?" he ask, dubious. "You're one of their agents ?"
[14:52] JustplayingTE frowns and shakes her head sadly "I have never considered myself any one's agent but my own, and as I said, he is an outcast of the kurri"
[14:54] EmiliaPlater: "I was an agent................
[14:54] EmiliaPlater: "with Avon
[14:54] EmiliaPlater: used to .....................oops
[14:54] EmiliaPlater: another place
[14:54] JustplayingTE giggles softly getting the Earth joke
[14:54] Claude Belgar shakes hus head "Actually this question was for your sister" he say, before exclaiming "AH ! I knew it !"
[14:55] EmiliaPlater: "See.........he's wearing Number 7.............i can tell
[14:56] EmiliaPlater: "So...............make-up wearing male............what can you offer for me fur?"
[14:56] JustplayingTE smiles at Miel the most gentlest smile she has to offer "love, Claude is a born Gorean, you will only confuse him, now Claude we came to trade, my sister has furs, and I know you are low on kalana wine, so perhaps there is something else you can offer?"
[14:58] Claude Belgar rubs his chin, pondering "I may have some jars of candies" he say after a while. "Two or three in fact, in the bag I left in my house"
[14:59] JustplayingTE nods gently and turns her attention to Miel "they are your furs love, I shall be quiet while you and Claude conduct your business"
[15:03] EmiliaPlater: shakes head............."Candies..............what is it with you traders. A piece of candy and you can win us over................well not this girl. I hate the stuff. Never touched it on earth ................dont touch it here. Have you anything of proper value..........arrow heads, medical supplies
[15:05] Claude Belgar looks surprised "Candies ? Did I say candies ?" he ask. "I was meaning candles of course. You know, to light your huts" before rubing his chin "Well, I can make some arrowheads yes, but that would take time"
[15:07] EmiliaPlater: grins a wry smile......."My apologies.........my hearing is a little upset.....but candles. Now that is what i thought you said"
[15:07] EmiliaPlater: smiles
[15:09] Claude Belgar smiles "So, maybe a box of ten candles ?" he ask "For your furs ? That seems quite honest to me, really"
[15:11] EmiliaPlater: "WHAT.......HOW DARE YOU........................you want to fur...................for a measly 10 candles...............i mean you think you can BUY me.............Well i never" she huffs
[15:14] Claude Belgar looks at Relic "Is she always like this ?" he ask before turning to Miel "Will you calm down, young lady ? I was talking about the furs your sisters told me you brought. Not to fur you." he say, annoyed. "If I had used skin instead, would you have assumed I wanted to skin you ?"
[15:14] EmiliaPlater: "Hrmpfh
[15:14] EmiliaPlater: "Well..............hmmm.
[15:15] JustplayingTE shakes her head and giggles softly just watching the scene before her, tears of laughter were beginning to appear in her eyes
[15:15] Claude Belgar: "I guess the word you are looking for is : sorry"
[15:16] EmiliaPlater: Glares at Calude.............."And why Don't you want to fur me.......................what are you implying.............I'm not good enough or something
[15:16] EmiliaPlater: "hrmph
[15:17] EmiliaPlater: "well I've never been......................." she stops herself mid speach
[15:18] JustplayingTE bursts out laughing she looks to Miel and grins "darling, dearest, desire of my heart, remember how we went hunting this morning, and you caught that tabuk by yourself?"
[15:19] EmiliaPlater: slowly calms............."Well, maybe.yes."
[15:19] Claude Belgar hear something fall at his feet, that would happen to be his lower jaw, due to the surprise. Fixing it back in place, he reply, a bit angry "That's not…" before stopping, not knowing what he should say in fact, raising his arms to the sky in fristration.
[15:19] EmiliaPlater: "I was very good.............wasn't I sis?"
[15:20] JustplayingTE: and I showed you how to skin it and told you that we could use the fur for trading?
[15:21] EmiliaPlater: slowly chews her lip and watches her sister...............
[15:21] EmiliaPlater: "He wants that fur sis?
[15:21] EmiliaPlater: pouts.............."not me?
[15:22] JustplayingTE smiles still giggling and nods "yes that fur, now show Claude what you've got, and I mean the animal skin"
[15:23] Claude Belgar stay silence, waiting patiently, hoping that the woman have calmed herself.
[15:25] EmiliaPlater: deliberately turns her back on claude and hums as she reaches into her shoulder bag. Tucking a stray hair away before finally dropping a flayed hide at her feet and turning to face the trader
[15:26] EmiliaPlater: "Your opinion if you please?" she demands
[15:27] EmiliaPlater: "I have many such as those" she lies
[15:27] JustplayingTE looks at the fur and nods approvingly "as you can see Claude high quality, well skinned, and hardly a mark upon it where it has been shot....it was a clean kill"
[15:28] Claude Belgar examine the furs. It seemed good, but he was still a bit upset with the woman ranting "I saw better" he say, "But I would offer you eight candles for it… because I fell generous"
[15:28] EmiliaPlater whispers: SIs...........why doesn't he like me. Am i not pretty?
[15:29] EmiliaPlater whispers: is it my hair?
[15:29] JustplayingTE smiles at Miel and whispers to her "am I not enough for you my love?"
[15:29] EmiliaPlater whispers: It is............. I knew it
[15:30] EmiliaPlater: spins round
[15:32] JustplayingTE pulls the ruby back out of her backpack and bounces it in her hand teasingly "now Claude are you sure its only worth eight candles?"
[15:32] EmiliaPlater: "Oh, so you will feel generous will you, but not feel ................................" the words sink in before she says......................."more generous and offer it's true value, er 12 candles"
[15:33] EmiliaPlater: "No Claude you are rigfht. I insult you, lets say 15
[15:33] Claude Belgar blinks "Are you insane ?" he say. "I could go to nine, but it really doesn't worth more"
[15:34] EmiliaPlater: You right............you say 9
[15:34] JustplayingTE continues to bounce the jewel in her hand simply smiling listening to the trader and her love haggle
[15:34] EmiliaPlater: I can do that
[15:34] EmiliaPlater: may not be all the same species but
[15:34] EmiliaPlater: hey
[15:34] EmiliaPlater: so we have a deal - 9?
[15:35] Claude Belgar close his eyes for 0.018 seconds in relief "Nine it is then, I think we have finally a deal"
[15:35] EmiliaPlater: ha ha
[15:36] EmiliaPlater: OK
[15:36] JustplayingTE looks up from the jewel "9 candles, for that fur, I think if my love is happy then I can put this back"
[15:36] EmiliaPlater: sis we need another 8 skins
[15:36] EmiliaPlater: no sis
[15:36] EmiliaPlater: he wanted 9 skins
[15:36] EmiliaPlater: for 15 candles a skim
[15:36] EmiliaPlater: dont you remeber
[15:36] EmiliaPlater: ha ha ha
[15:37] EmiliaPlater: 135 candles in total but I'll take 150 for ease of carrying if you like
[15:37] JustplayingTE: well the rest of the skins we can catch another time, as easily as a kur catches a duck
[15:37] EmiliaPlater whispers: how many furs do you have sis?
[15:38] EmiliaPlater whispers: I have another 2
[15:38] Claude Belgar feels tired, but tired… "No, no. I offer you nine candles, for this one furs"
[15:39] EmiliaPlater: "WHAT............you said furs............. that is plural................one fur plus more
[15:39] EmiliaPlater: "I thank we can let off with 2 candles
[15:40] EmiliaPlater: and we'll forgive you for wasting our time
[15:40] JustplayingTE smiles and places the jewel back into her backpack smiling "do not worry about it love, its fine, and Claude is a man of honour, 9 candles for the fur, seems a fair price"
[15:40] EmiliaPlater: And hey....maybe come back another day
[15:40] Claude Belgar: "Because I didn't knew how many you had" he reply. "So, nine candles ? For this fur ?"
[15:41] JustplayingTE smiles and nods "if my love agrees then I am happy"
[15:41] EmiliaPlater: scratches her chin........because it itches
[15:42] EmiliaPlater: "I think we have a deal
JustplayingTE smiles and places the jewel back into her backpack smiling "do not worry about it love, its fine, and Claude is a man of honour, 9 candles for the fur, seems a fair price"
[15:44] Claude Belgar looks relieved, wrappings the candles into a tissue, before handing it to Miel. "Nine, as agreed"
[15:45] EmiliaPlater: smiles her sweetest smile as she peels back the wrapping to check the parcels contents
[15:46] EmiliaPlater: "That looks in order ...............you can roll the fur yourself
[15:46] JustplayingTE smirks "nice doing business with you again Claude, and this time honest trading instead of being robbed"
[15:47] EmiliaPlater: stares at the man........"And you never wanted to fur me...................humph"
[15:48] EmiliaPlater: and stalks off
[15:48] Claude Belgar shrugs "Yes, there is progress" he say. "Well, I wish you a safe path" he say, signifying that the trade was over.
