Elizabeth eyed the lantern briefly, then returned the laugh which was mixed with some relief. "Well, that was a close one," she said, "but thank you for your concern. I was simply enraptured by the night sky. It is beautiful, no?" At this, she waved her hand at the sky above them.

She shook her head at his question, replying, "I am simply human, though I understand your asking. And indeed, I am unaccompanied. However, I am aware of the the seedier locations and this is not one of them. Unless you are one of the unpleasant characters," she said lightly, quirking an eyebrow.

"Yes, that's correct," Elizabeth agreed with a light laugh, "but this is a city of contradictions, as well. Even as there are terrible and dangerous places, there are plenty of wonderful locations as well." Stepping back, the waitress glanced over Achaeos, nodding. "Well, I would simply say that you do not fit in, that could be said for many of the inhabitants here."

"A pleasure, Achaeos. Aki." She let the name roll off the tip of her tongue, smiling. "My name is Elizabeth." With a small curtsy, she swept her arm across the Square. "Simply a woman off work, who decided to enjoy the fresh air and a beautiful night. Yourself?"

"Do I not?" Achaeos frowned, looking down at himself, "I suppose that my garb is rather... traditional. It has been a while since I spent much time amongst humans, I've not really adjusted to the fashions of the day." The fox-eared boy looked back up with a smile. "It's a pleasure to meet you, Elizabeth. I've been here for most of the day, just enjoying the atmosphere."

He stepped away, lantern trailing lazily through the night air as it swung around with him. "I am enjoying the quiet, I suppose, after a day of noise and crowds. The contrast between how busy it was here earlier and how deserted it is now is remarkable."

"Indeed, it seems quite traditional. There is nothing wrong with that, and it is not even as out of place as I made it seem. The people here are dressed in whatever is comfortable for them, and that varies. I am certainly not one to talk," she admitted, lifting her dress to show him. "It is more old-fashioned than common fashions."

Her eyes locked onto the moving lantern. "The experiences are interestingly different between a full crowd and an empty night. Out of curiosity, do you always carry that lantern?"

"Always? No, not always. But more often than not, yes." Achaeos smiled, trailing a hand over the metal frame, apparently unhindered by the heat. "It is both comforting and helpful for me to have a source of flame about my person. I have an affinity to it, you could say. Think of it as equivalent to a priest carrying a crucifix, or a wizard their wand. A mix of a reassuring and symbolic presence and a useful tool, in the right circumstances."

Not to mention the fact that it carried a portion of his soul, but that was a detail Achaeos seldom shared, and certainly not with strangers. To demonstrate what he had said, a spark of flame danced from the lantern and onto the kitsune's arm like a firefly, twirling about the length of the limb in a merrily erratic dance and blazing a short-lived glowing trail behind it. "I have noticed the diversity here, it is true, and so I have made less effort than I might otherwise to 'fit in'. Such things have previously been much more important, where displays of a supernatural nature or other abnormalities might bring more trouble than they were worth."

"Well, it certainly is a strange thing to carry around," Elizabeth observed, slowly reaching out towards it to feel the warmth. "But from your statement I can assume that you are something a little less close to human. Either that or it is a strange penchant." Then, a small chuckle escaped her lips. "Quite, I cannot imagine a simple crucifix lighting up the darkness, at least. Your symbol, at the very least, has more practical use."

Of course there was more to the lantern that met the eye, but if Aki was indeed a supernatural creature, she did not expect him to reveal the secret to it. The lantern was important to him, and that summed up what she needed to know. An eyebrow slowly made its way up at the moving flame. "Well, we certainly get the fair share of the spooky, weird, intriguing, dangerous and unexplainable."

"But if you care to share, what are you exactly?"

"Were the ears not a give-away? Maybe you aren't familiar with the legends," Achaeos laughed, the fox-ears upon his head twitching. "I am a kitsune. Renowned for our deception, and our ability to blend in so that we might steal the souls of unsuspecting humans. Humans consider us foxes in disguise, whilst on the reverse, foxes consider us humans in disguise. Quite the quandry, I'm not even sure myself which - if either- is more true."

He held up a hand, "I assure you, the bad reputation does not describe all of us. I am quite evidently making no efforts to conceal my nature, and your soul is safe from me. I have other means of surviving than leaving a trail of lifeless, drained husks. I cannot abide a murderer, by supposed necessity or not."

A slight blush came to Elizabeth's cheeks and she laughed again. "No, you are correct. I am not a particular observer of the legends where many originate from. But I do not recall ever hearing of a kitsune." She bowed her head. "Thank you for the lesson, then. I suppose I will remember to be cautious around those who are not like you. I do rather like my soul, after all."

Linking her fingers, her hands pushed out to stretch her arms. She then raised a finger. "And how do I know you are not just trying to seduce me with pretty words until we reach some dark alley, hmmm?" The question was light and joking and not an accusation.

"Well, were that my intent, I am doing quite a poor job of leading you towards said alley, aren't I?" Achaeos quipped with amusement, "And in enlightening you as to my nature, I would have only shot myself in the foot, so to speak. I fear that should a kitsune have designs upon your soul, you would not know them for what they were until it was too late. Few wear their fox traits out in the open, instead shrouding them with illusion."

He shook his head, "But there is little need to be paranoid. It has been decades since I last encountered another of my kind, and she did not survive the meeting. An unpleasant experience, but she had left a trail of death behind her I would not like to consider the potential length of. She could not be allowed to continue."

"Well, it could happen at any time," Elizabeth mused, "suddenly, alley. And the poor waitress disappears without a trace, never to be found again. After all, some predators attempt to appear helpless before they strike." Attentively, she took in the information that he gave her. "So you are saying it would not matter if I knew or not. Then there is no point in worrying," she told him.

"And thus, I will not be paranoid."

"Well, I think that makes you a prime candidate in escorting me from this dangerous, dark place. After all, something could happen to a defenseless girl like me, no?" she queried in mock fear, widening her eyes and referring back to the earlier conversation.

Achaeos laughed, nodding his head. "I've never known alleyways to be that sneaky, but there is a first time for everything." he said, "And I could not possibly refuse, since you're asking. I have nowhere pressing to be, and good company is its own reward. To where do you travel, Miss Elizabeth?"

The kitsune held out his free arm in offering for Elizabeth to take, should she wish to. "You are a waitress, then? At what establishment?"

"I have always figured them for sneaky. Dark, cramped, potentially sound stifling and unlikely to be walked in on..." Her hand rose, fingers waggling in ominous movement. "To be honest, I did not have anywhere pressing to be either. A night walk is a night walk, and goes wherever the moon decides."

Elizabeth curtsied again, gracefully taking the kitsune's arm. "Well, I must accept. Walk with me then. I work at the Tauvyr Tavern. Perhaps you have heard of it?"

"I have, as it happens. I have been spending many of my days at Verinotte Hollow as of late. It is a pleasant little town, once one gets past the pervasiveness of vampires and other such beings." Achaeos said as they began to walk. His expression became thoughtful. "I have never known so many of them to be... amiable. Most vampires and other supernatural entities that border the line between life and death that I have encountered before have been malicious, or even savage." he added with a shrug of his shoulders.

"But there is much here that is different to I have known it to be in the past. That is one of the more pleasant things that I have begun to grow accustomed to. There has been such change in the years I have been dormant, it is difficult to get my head around many of them. Cars, for example, baffle me entirely. I can see what they do, and indeed how to get them to do it, but ... the very concept of placing oneself in such a metallic beast is inherently alarming to me."

It was not a busy night at the Tauvyr Tavern. There were a few regulars sitting at a corner booth, enjoying a few drinks around a game of dice. Aside from them, stragglers dotted the bar counter, each with a glass sitting in front of them. Behind the counter was a fairly beautiful blonde in a black dress matched with a maid apron, both pieces of clothing loosely Victorian. She sat with her legs crossed on a stool, with her nose buried in a book.

At the sound of the door and lots of exicted chatter, Elizabeth stood, delicately inserted a bookmark in her novel and placed it on the counter. In a few brisk strides, she crossed the room to greet the lavish woman and her bodyguard with a polite curtsy.

"Hello sir and miss, welcome to the Tauvyr Tavern. My name is Elizabeth and I will be your bartender and waitress today. Pleaes seat yourself, and whilst you do, can I perhaps get either of you something to drink or a menu? We have a wonderful selection if I do say so myself." She swept a hand past the booths and the counter, ending at the racks of bottles behind their wooden barrier.

A professional smile was plastered across her face as she observed the pair. A monster the girl may have been, but monsters were common patrons and they were all pleasant enough. Most of the time, that is. The waitress was not intimidated by Alcina's demeanor, nor by Duke's weapons, though she did internally question the girl's revealing choice in clothing.

In fact, the girl reminded her of a particularly bratty child. Why, if Elizabeth was her mother, she wouldn't have allowed such...anyway, this girl wasn't her daughter. And the mother in question considered herself too young to be one.

And the daughter in question was probably a bit older than the mother. She was certainly taller. A good 5'10" with her heels on, the woman towered over the girl. Her eyes angled down at her.

"Do hurry and get this lady some white wine? Perhaps this isn't the right place-" She glanced around at the rougher customers drinking away, "-but it's the nearest, and I don't fancy having to walk too far!" She slipped her fan from her thin belt and began to breeze herself, leaning against the table pitifully. "You wouldn't understand the woes of a woman who has to walk in expensive footwear, dear. It's awful, it is."

Duke tried to exchange glances with the young barmaid, rolling his eyes at Alcina.

They all grow up so fast. Elizabeth bowed slightly to high heeled "princess" before bringing her gaze up to firmly meet the other woman's without a flinch in her smile.

Her eyes flickered to Duke, and her mouth contorted slightly in understanding. "We're glad to have your patronage and hope you enjoy your stay," was her steady reply to the arrogant comment. Backing away, she turned and headed for the counter again. "No, miss. I'm sure being wealthy is a huge burden. It must be terrible to deal with so many issues," she said sweetly while her lips, turned away, turned into a sardonic smirk.

"Wine for the miss." The waitress busied herself with finding the right drink, tutting and clucking until she spotted the bottle she was looking for. With a flourish, she balanced a wineglass in one hand and two bottles in the other. Setting the glass on the table, she poured the alcohol with a flourish. "Sauvignon Blanc, six years old. It should be to your tastes." The wine also had one of the highest alcohol contents, but Elizabeth deigned to mention that part.

"And an ale for the sir." She slid the bottle towards Duke with a sympathetic nod.

Alcina sat down in her chair with a huff, pointing the fan at the waitress. "You're a dear, you are. Look at her! Pouring and all. Perhaps this place isn't as trash as I first thought." She glanced around it a second time. "Or...in any case...the staff, at least, are competent!" She took the wineglass up and sipped. "As is the wine." She fished in her little purse for money. Funnily, she had just enough. Only. Just. Enough. She passed a glance between Duke and Elizabeth.

She took the money out and held it toward the girl. There would be no tip. "Just one wine for tonight. A lady has to be modest, after all!"

Duke nodded to the waitress as she gave him the ale, and almost smirked. He gave Elizabeth the, "Can you believe this?" look.

"Oh, well thank you, miss," Elizabeth replied with an incline of her head. "We strive for service here, though the building itself may seem gloomy. We find that some of our patrons prefer this atmosphere. If our tavern was different, it would certainly lose its homely feeling."

The bartender eyed the payment, noting the exact change. A few thoughts ran through her head, but they were mainly impolite and she refrained from saying anything. After all, there were customers who did not or could not pay tips, though if the latter was the case then Alcina was putting on a bigger show than she could really run.

Lightly palming the cash and dropping it safely into a pocket, Elizabeth met Duke's gaze again, raising an eyebrow ever so slightly. She covered her mouth, returning with "I have no idea what you're talking about" look.

"So if I may ask, what brings the miss and sir in today?"

The young woman rose a hand into the air and flapped it about. "Oh! The obvious, dear, the obvious! Drink, some time out of the Carroll Manor, away from being indoors!"

That was a new place that had been finished with construction recently, and had become occupied in the last month by the Carroll family, who were incredibly wealthy. Their name had gone around a bit, but not too well. They liked to keep to themselves, mostly. Or so it seemed. There had been rumors of one daughter escaping quite frequently to wander into town.

"Of course, even in such a drab little place, a woman always goes out to show herself off, meet the eyes of some dashing, incredibly wealthy noble man. Someone of high status. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anywhere else close enough, and I severely doubt I'll find one here...oh, I doubt anyone could!"

The man twisted his mug on the table, stifling a chuckle.

"Oh, of course. How could I have missed such an obvious thing? Quite silly of me," Elizabeth conceded with another curtsy, leaning back against the table.

As both a bartender and waitress, Elizabeth had picked up on rumours of the mansion; she had heard about the wealthy family who lived there. Now the woman in front of her finally registered as a daughter of the family - she was still too young to be the mistress of the house. Alcina's attitude began to make sense.

"Ah, of course. A wonderful dream, finding a husband with money," the blonde agreed, though her tone was barely caustic. Her mouth twisted slightly and she nodded her head. "Yes, I will quite agree with you. While the service here may be acceptable," she paused, regaining a proper demeanor and giggling, "this is not the place to find someone like that."

Her eyes landed on Duke again. "But who might the gentleman be?"

"We can have hopes and dreams," said Alcina. "But a place like Aslund destroys them. Hell! Terra destroys them. I can't believe we moved from Pramia!"

She drank sourly, leaning back in her chair. "I do hope that distinguished men live in Terra at all. At least some of the women are just fine." She tilted her glass in the direction of Elizabeth. "But men!" She eyed the man lividly. He returned the glare.

"His name is Duke. He's nothing special, just a bodyguard, is all, and a ruffian that I pay. No real interest to you, dear."

Duke shook his head, then mocked Alcina and mouthed, "She's just a bitch that pays me. No real interest to you, dear."

"Oh, I very well understand what you mean," Elizabeth said, getting lost in her thoughts for a few seconds before snapping back to the conversation.

The interaction between Alcina and Duke brought a wry grin to her face. "Well, I can't speak for all of the men, but some of them are fine. I can't speak for their wealth either, but I'm sure you'll find someone who suits you."

She directed a wink towards the bodyguard. "And I'm sure your shield deserves some more credit than you give him."

"In any case, my patrons are always a real interest to me, miss. A pleasure, Duke."

"I think you're too used to hungry Supernaturals. If you came to the presence of higher company, you would see what you're missing!" She finished her wine, to the very drop. "Oh, that was excellent. I'll have another."

That bodyguard gave the smallest, slightest smirk back to Elizabeth. More of that humor showed in his eyes. "Likewise," he replied in a very deep, rumbling voice. It was the first he'd spoken the whole time.

"You really should come to the Carroll manor sometime, Miss...oh, what was your name again?"

"Oh, perhaps, but I do so enjoy those hungry Supernaturals, as you say. Things are always more interesting with them around. And I would so hate to be bored. But if I am ever invited into this "higher company" then I certainly will not decline.

Elizabeth smiled, but ambiguously directed it at both customers. "Oh, of course. And you didn't ask, miss, but it's Elizabeth. Elizabeth York. I'll be right back with another ale."

With a twirl, her skirt fluttering, she made again for the counter with large but quiet steps. "Hey darlin', another beer for me too!" A grinning man at the dice table waved at her before turning back to his game.

The waitress beamed at him, nodding. She disappeared into the storage room and reappeared with two bottles. Almost dancing back over, she placed one next to the man. His smile grew and he made a swat at her.

Elizabeth slipped away, clucking her tongue and shaking her head. She returned to Alcina and Duke, sliding the other bottle across the wood and deftly poured another glass for the 'princess.'

"What were discussing again?"
