Tawny

A Daedayre

0 · 470 views · located in The Infinite Void

a character in “The Multiverse”, as played by Sick Puppy

Description

Tawny is now a 22 year old woman with long shiny black hair that frames her bright green eyes. Her small frame can noly be described as indeceptive as she has no real talents in combat. She could be described as intelligent and trustworthy with a general demeanor thats pleasant and welcoming, meaning shes highly sociable and always up for a laugh.

She does also have one other unfamiliarity and that story is held accountable to the beautiful owl she carries with her. Tawny could now be described as a True Daedayre, a very rare race of beings imbued with the spirit of an animal through extraordinary circumstances.

The Making of a Daedayre
Tawnys story began when she was 19 and, living with her parents, she came back home from her day at the academy with a small cardboard box in her hands.

'Mum, could you get me some antiseptic wipes, some masking tape and some lollypop sticks if you have some please' she said quite demandingly, her mind set at the task in hand.

'A please wouldn't go amiss young lady,' Her mother replied getting up to fetch the items from around the house. 'What do you need them for anyway?'

Not expecting her mum to be very happy with her answer, she dismissed the question with a 'It doesnt matter.'

'Well, whatever your doing be careful...and be sure to clean up after yourself when you've finished.'

'Thanks, i will,' and upon taking the items, she proceeded to head up to her room being careful not to jolt the contents of the shoebox.

******

Upon entering her room the young girl placed the box carefully on her bed and begun arranging the various bits and bobs her mother collected, along with a pair of scissors, needle, thread and tissues, all upon a clean towel.

'Lets see what i can do for you' she said compassionately and seemingly to herself, but as she removed the lid from the shoebox and reached inside, what could be described as a small scuffling sound could be heard.

A small owl was lifted upon to the towel, its beautiful feathers emblazoned with delicate patterning up its back and its right wing hung lifelessly at its side. It was obvious it was broken, the odd angle of the structure would make anyone concerned to look that this was the case, and if that wasn't enough, the large amount of blood and the unconcious state confirmed it further.

'That dog got you good ,didnt he, hey?' she continued in a soothing tone as she carefully lifted the wing to see the full extent of the damage. It was worse than shed thought, the muscle on the underside was ripped at the shoulderblade, and at this point most people would pass the bird for dead.

She began using the antiseptic wipes to clean away the blood and the open wounds for bacteria and disease before trimming away at a small amount of surrounding feathers.

She wasn't a nurse, or a doctor, or any type of medical staff. She just felt...guided, as if it were her task to complete.

'Such a pretty thing aren't you hun?' she reassured the bird whilst stroking the feathers at its neck, and upon doing so, she felt the bird had dropped in temperature. It had lost alot of blood, and the shock of the mauling was enough to kill the strongest of birds, but she wasn't ready to give up yet.

After already sterilizing a thin sowing needle, she threaded it and spent the next 15 minutes totally focused on repairing as much of the damage as she could.

The bird still unconscious, and the young girl now completely worn from not only these events but from her day at school, she grabbed a hot water bottle and a few blankets and tucked the bird up against her as she fell asleep.

******
Hours passed, and the 19 year old was awoken to the sound of her door banging.

'Are you up?' her mum called, 'Your going to be late for school.'

'Her eyes flew open and upon realising her predicament, in her best fake husky voice, she called back ' Mum, i'm feeling ill, i dont think im well enough.'

'Well alright, but make sure you catch up on your work, im going out shopping i'll see you later'

'okay, have fun. ' and the sound of footsteps signalled her mothers retreat.

She got up and pulled the bird from its 'nest' to study it, only to find, although weak and malnourished, it was staring back at her.

'Well hello handsome,' she said ruffling its feathers. To which the bird just looked up at her.

A few weeks passed and after much coaxing and hard work, the girl managed to feed, water and bathe the bird back to life. When she could shed sneak her knew friend out to the large garden where the bird could begin to regain its balance, and stretch its wing. The wing wasn't fully healed yet and the girl was uncertain it would ever fully recover, at least enough to allow the bird to regain flight, but one thing was for certain. Over the weeks that had passed the small bird had shown an immense amount of gratitude in the form of friendly pecks, calls and even in becoming clingy when she had to leave for school. She hadn't expected it, but the owl had grown to adore her and she returned the love happily.

*******
The following spring came and in the recent months the owl begun to fly and attempted to hunt independantly to no avail, yet would never leave the young womans side for more than a few minutes.

Then came the day.

She was out at the bottom of the garden in a small wooded area with Shakespeare, When she started feeling a niggling pain in her chest. Ignoring it, she chased after the owl in a playful manner. Her heart felt suddenly heavy and in moments she was on the floor gasping for breath under the influence of a heart attack.

With no one to help her she just lay there defenceless and dying until Shakespeare landed a few feet away with the first mouse he'd caught since his wing broke. Upon seeing something was wrong, the little creature walked up beside her face and began almost headbutting at her cheek as if to comfort her.

Whilst gasping for air she reassured him 'Ye-yes i'm her-here, dont wo-worry, be saf-fe' and with a smile at the little bird and those last words, her eyelids fell shut and all was silent.

*********

The little bird hopped onto her chest and began to call. it was a sad low call as if all his happiness had suddenly been taken away from him. He closed his eyes and began to dream, it was all he could do.


'Shakespeare? what are you doing here?' Tawny asked confused, she had accepted the prior events took place and was confused at the presence of the small bird she loved here with her. She noted a small object at the birds feet, a scroll, along with a locket, written on ancient and worn parchment. She picked it up and read;

' In light of occasions and sacrifices made, the brotherhood of light
has consented to the request of a new Daedayre.

The Daedayre has now fulfilled all the necessary laws
- passing -sacrifice -compassion -love -acceptance
required to complete the ritual... and shall continue to exist
under the name Tawny .... '

More information followed on the scroll about her task and the ritual that followed but she watched and smiled as Shakespeare took flight and landed on her shoulder. She rubbed the plumage at his back gratefully and in the full knowledge that this bird was special. A small feather escaped his feathery ranks and was drifting upon the air and landing in her palm.

She raised the pocket from the perch where Shakespeare showed, and placed the feather inside before hanging the locket around her neck. Suddenly she was made aware of a beating heart...her heart, and everything seemed to Vanish into the sound.

She woke from her slumber laying in the woods at the bottom of her garden, the wind gushed through her hair and she was astounded. didnt she just die? Had Shakespeare really brought her back? it seemed impossible, but the locket around her waist and the scroll in her hand was evidence enough. she looked at the bird who nudged the scroll with his head, as if she should read. And she did.

'As part of the contract the Daedayre must leave the old life
behind them and instead follow their journey, taking the
companion along.
Two become one, where one falls so not does one but all.'

And so Tawny and Shakespeares lives became conjoined, happily up till this day.

' Why you nosy little sod,' she said Cleary irritated by Shakespeares acts,and she preceded by plucking the book from her friend. The cover formed a galaxy that seemed to effervesce a glowing multicolored light. She flicked open to the most recent page and although unfinished, there pictured her and Shakespeare. Her heart sank suddenly and her thoughts turned to ones drenched with paranoia. Was someone after her? Had the boy intended to share his work to someone that meant her harm... She stared at the boy named Brian maliciously emptying her thoughts and feelings down into her gaze. It was then she realized that Shakespeare hadn't been mischievious, and in fact he was looking out for her. A wave of guilt washed over her as she realized he had once again left her side,probably in search of more appreciative company. Sure enough there he was hovering in front of the woman named Isis, a rather picturesque vision,and instantly jealousy erupted inside her. 'Excuse me, im sure he's bothering you' she said with a mock tone and a forceful shove of her body that would usually knock most off their feet.

EDIT: A wave of guilt washed over her as she realized he had once again left her side, probably in search of more appreciative company. Sure enough the swooping of white wings, sent Tawny chasing him further into the complex. Slightly short of breath,and upon placing the sketch pad into her satchel,she arrived in what appeared to be a pub area that was fairly quiet and no more unusual than any other shed seen. Her glare searched the various booths and her spontaneous flinch signalled she'd seen Shakespeare apparently preening on a corner table to onlookers. Jealousy creeped into her mind, at the picturesque figure, known as Isis to her aquaintences, as she excused Shakespeare's actions... She's not allowed to excuse him, that was her job, the countless social predicaments she had faced for him she felt so.ewhat betrayed.'Excuse me,' she said in a clearly mocking tone, that incinuated Isis as a snobby, upperclass and perfectly niece young lady. 'I'm sure he's bothering you.' Tawny reached for the bird wrecklessly, and in the process, knocked over a drink that sent the large owl spluttering into Isis's lap. Tawny sighed in disbelief and waited for the approaching consequences.

Jeremy attempted to help resolve this issue. "Please, just keep the owl under control, and we will be fine". Jeremy was being extremely nice today. Anyone else probably would have kicked Tawny out a long time ago. He then looked at Brian. "Are you okay?"

Jeremy then proceeded to get any mess created form this ordeal cleaned up by the staff.

A man stood in the shadows, watching.

Jeremy went over to Isis again. "Sorry about that. Crazy day going on. So, is there anything else you might need help with?"

(Sorry for the rather short post. My brain died inside my head while writing this)

#, as written by Faithy
She was not having a good time, like most of the others, and the creature that resided deep within her soul was begging to be released. Not really wanting to be kicked out of the new place and possibly arrested, Isis knew better than to allow the thing to come out quite yet. No, she would wait until her target came and then the two would go to a hotel room that was registered under a fake alias. It wasn’t her first rodeo and even though he was very late, she still remained quite cool and collected despite being slightly irritated.

“Twenty more minutes and then I’m gone.”

Sipping on some water, Isis leaned back in the booth, her back pressed against the wall so that her feet could stretch out on the bench part of the seat. She was not only comfortable, but in this position, she could see everything. This way, no one could sneak up on her. She read far too many stories about assassins that ended up being taken out because they let their back become exposed. She was far smarter than that. Sighing, she glanced up just in time to see a white owl land on the edge of her table.

“What in the world…? Shoo, you filthy beast.”

She was just about to whack the bird with a nearby menu when a female came running over to the booth and spoke in a tone that obviously meant she no longer wanted to live because that was what generally happened when someone spoke in a condescending way towards Isis. Arching a brow before narrowing her emerald eyes towards the unknown woman, Reign released a low growl when the girl knocked over her water, the motion enough to send the damned owl into her lap. Grabbing a hold of the bird, Isis leaned forward and all but slammed it into the girl’s arms. It wasn’t hard enough to actually injure it, but her point was hopefully made.

“You have exactly three seconds to get the hell out of my face before I make myself girl and owl stew! If you ever speak to me in that manner again, it will be the last thing you do. Now get LOST.” Shifting her attention towards Jeremy, Isis just shook her head, anger very apparent upon her face.

Tawny fell back onto the floor as the force of Shakespeare in the hands of the woman shook her delicate frame... 'I-I...' she hugged the owl close relieved he was back in her arms and withdrew from the table hurriedly. ' How many more people are you going to harass at my expense.' She tried to sound harsh but her voice formed a more caring or pleading tone. 'Tawny looked at the now sodden table of the previous events, and though twice about going to clear up. Hesitantly she backed out of the pub area and turned to the fluffy mess in her arms. 'Listen , I don't care how cute you are or how sharp your talons are...' she continued as Shakespeares claws tightened around her arm, ' This kind of behavior is unacceptable, people are after us, I don't know who and I don't know why, but we need to stay under the radar. These phases of yours aren't helping.' The large bird acknowledged her with a small squawk, and with that she turned to reenter the casino.

Xas sighed heavily at his luck, rubbing a lump concealed by his hair, the reminder of the day beforehand. He was way off course, thanks to some sort of deepspace zombie horde, and had spent more than he would have liked on ship repairs. So what if it was unlike anything they've seen? He was pretty sure they were taking advantage of a foreigner. So from there he had gotten in a fight with a street gang because they were going to take advantage of some poor woman. He won, of course, but then the lady in question had pepper-sprayed him and the result was Xas on his ass and a lump on his head.

The dark-haired male tugged at the collar of his jacket, adjusting it, and thinking over the idea of a good hard drink. A grand opening seemed like a great chance to take advantage of the promotional prices, and casinos were great, as long as you made sure not to gamble.

Continuing with the poor luck of the day, a young woman and her owl ended up in front of Xas, before he had time to react. Naturally he plowed right into her, and probably would have knocked her from her feet, if not for the fact that the cop wrapped his arms around Tawny to keep her from in fact, being knocked over. Just as quickly, he let go and backed off, holding up a hand in defense.

"Sorry about that, miss. Wasn't watching where I was going, honest, don't pepperspray me, please," his mellow baritone of a voice held a note of panic, making it pretty clear that he expected an issue,"Or have the owl attack me. Not really up for sharp talons to the face, ma'am."

Tawny stumbled until the strength of Xas' arms kept her from harm, while Shakespeare only responded by pushing his talons further into Tawnys forearm. 'Ow!' she mumbled,trying to hide her reaction, as a small weeping of blood soaked through her hoodie. She looked up into the eyes of the man she planned to insult, but all anger and frustrations were soon forgotten as she felt the sudden stability of his arms retreat away from her. She didn't say anything, but laughed at his mentions of pepperspray and an onslaught of talons. She placed her hand on his bulky forearm in reassurance and reaffirmed by saying ' Please, its fine, no harm done...well no more than either of us can handle she smiled up at him. Then rational thought returned to her, and took a few paces back, to allow her time to run if necessary, her thoughts had returned to those people that meant to cause her harm. She gazed at him curiously, her usual feelings of dread, when she faced threats, hadn't erupted, and so she continued 'I'm being silly...its been an eventful day.' a tone of shame lingered clear in her voice.

Xas relaxed at the sound of laughter, managing even a smile at the shorter female,"Well, to make up for it, maybe I can treat you to a drink, or I guess its late enough for a little dinner?" He motioned lightly to Shakespeare,"Your friend too, I'm sure we could find something to their liking."

So far so good, he guessed, as he hadn't been assaulted yet. His general stance had become relaxed, though not lazy, and his expression while friendly, still carried a hint of concern. After all, as far as Xas knew, she was a civilian and was just what he has sworn to protect...plus she was kind of cute. He offered his hand in a friendly gesture, though if Tawny would return the gesture, he wouldn't go for the handshake, but would rather take her hand as if she were a delicate princess, and bow slightly.

"I'm Xas Raeys, but you can call me anything you'd like at all. So I got to ask, did the goddess see fit to give you a name with that beautiful smile?" His tone was very matter-of-fact, as if it was only logical that he would find her attractive, and that her beauty was nothing less than heaven-sent.

Tawny looked at Shakespeare and conceded that they had both suffered through a lack of nourishment. ' I guess we could stay for dinner,' she blushed adding a soft redness to her cheeks.'You can call me Tawny, and this, is Shakespeare' she announced as she opened her arm out to introduce the two. Her fingers flinched in surprise as they brushed against Xas' outstretched hand. She lowered her gaze and turned her head in embarassment, 'Im flattered by your kind words, Xas, I apologise, i have yet to learn how to take compliments, without turning bright red.' she giggled slightly and turned back to him, her green eyes gleaming, as she slowly replaced her hand in is. Shakespeare pecked at Xas finger as she did so. 'Just a word of warning, its Shakespeare you need to get on the right side of.'

Jeremy, after a ton of more guests, finally took a moment to sit down at the bar. Just for a moment, but it was worth it. "Maarat. Please, I am going to need something strong for tonight".

"How sugary?"

"Surprise me with something extremely strong"

"Alright...I cant be held responsible for the headache you are going to have in the morning".

"Please, I always have a headache".

Maarat made some sort of concoction, which smelled sweet and sugary and as if it would keep him going for another week. He drank the whole thing at once, and then got back to work.

He went back into the fray, greeting several more people, including going to greet Xas right as that woman with her owl collided into him. "Uhh, my name is Jeremy Tarosi, and are you okay?"

Suddenly, some song, "Workin for Dimes", started playing.

The cop flinched as his fingers were on the receiving end of a warning peck, and cocked an eyebrow at the protective owl,"Shakespeare, huh? Well then, my fine feathered acquaintance, I guess I'll just have to show you that I mean no harm." He chuckled lightly, allowing another friendly smile as he held open the door for Tawny,"Well, after you m'lady, and don't mind the fancy compliments. I just like to give credit where credit is due."

Once Tawny stepped inside, Xas would follow, instinctively scanning the crowd for the less-than-honorables, of which there seemed no short supply of. About that time what appeared to be a child reached the pair, introducing himself and asking if they were alright,"No worries for me, though I suppose I'll need to be offering reparations to the lady and her companion." He motioned toward Tawny in indication of 'the lady'. "I'm Officer Raeys with the NEA. While I have no official business in this location, I'd like the management here to be aware that I am in fact armed and would like official permission for my concealed weapon."

He wasn't too quiet about the information, and in fact pulled out his identification and badge, both of which would appear to be in the native language of whoever was reading it. For the moment, he wasn't Xas, the casual flirt, but rather he was Raeys, the officer of the law. "If needed I can wait here or outside."

Tawny turned to protest when she found out Xas wouldn't be eating with them. 'Your not going to eat with us?' for a moment she looked slightly dismayed as her thoughts turned to misunderstanding and misinterpretation. Had she imagined the flirting comments, she didn't have time to answer that, as she tensed up upon hearing he was a cop. Shed been drawn by a 15 year old that gave her the creeps, shed got into a pile of trouble with a far-from-friendly woman and now she had stumbled into a cop. What a day. She just smiled, and in a break of conversation uttered, 'You know, if your busy, I can just accept your apology, and leave you be. I have alot of stuff to figure out myself,' she explained. She felt slightly misplaced, she admitted that Xas was far from sore on the eyes, but how far would it get, and how quickly would it be before her persuers found her again? She glanced at Jeremy who was understandably not too pleased with her before deciding to enjoy the moment while she had it. She clasped Xas hand in hers after he'd replaced his ID and waited with him whilst he dealt with the issue of his firearm.

"Its fine. Our security has bigger and better guns anyways. However, I would like to know why an agent of the NEA feels like he needs to announce himself, unless he is working".

Jeremy seemed...energized...however, there was another thing different about him then before. Ever since he spoke to the man in the black outfit, he seemed a bit tense. The sugar was kicking in though, and would soon mask it. "So, anyways, my name is Jeremy Tarosi, and if you need anything let me know. We have entertainment, games, drinks, food, and rooms. Comfortable, empty rooms".

Jeremy was looking at Tawny and Xas, and how they looked at each other, and figured they might hook up. Jeremy was, surprisingly, capable of understanding romance despite being so young and having a college degree in business.

"We have a good discount on rooms right now, if your interested in staying the night. Plus, they will likely fill out sooner rather then later".

Xas nodded slightly and put his badge away,"I am working, but its an on-going investigation of a large scale, so its more passive than active. There shouldn't be any iss-" he cut off when Tawny took his hand, expression softening slightly,"Nah, I'll be joining you two for dinner, I just wanted to make sure things were taken care of. You never know, you know?" A lesser man may have blushed, but Xas didn't, remaining as stoic as ever.

His attention shifted back to Jeremy, as his fingers closed around Tawny's in a gentle grip,"I would like to reserve a room, since I'll be stuck planetside for a little while, but I think I'll take care of that after a little bit of something to eat," he glanced at the young lady at his side, confirming that he had her in the front of his thoughts, not the back of his mind,"I suppose I'll find you after that, Mr Tarosi."

With a polite nod, Xas led Tawny back to the pub area, which was easy enough to find, thanks to the clear set up of the place. Rather than sitting at the bar, he picked out a more secluded booth, always the gentleman, allowing his companion to sit first. "Right...I suppose you'll have questions about my work, now? Its not secret or anything, so feel free to ask anything."

Tawny allowed herself to forget her doubts, the man she stood with was now clearer on his intentions, and as he squeezed her hand back she almost squirmed. Was this really happening. She was guided back into the bar area, and lost in her thoughts she forgot to look over at the corner booth where the previous engagement had took. As Xas gestured for her to sit she did so allowing Shakespeare to perch on the head of the seat next to her. 'Well I don't mean to pry, Xas, but I'd like to ask what your particular....hmm...branch specializes in, and how often you have to use that thing.' she asked incinuating the firearm he carried. Nervous, her fingers began to shake, and she instantly felt a twang of guilt. She shoved them under the table and spoke. ' I'm sorry, I've been having trouble lately, and well guns haven't been absent from the picture. That's why id feel a little easier in knowing your here to sit with me, rather than flashing around fake IDs only to gain my trust,and well...shoot me.' She must've sounded so stupid but if he was real then she could finally talk to someone. She looked absently at Shakespeare in search of reassurance. 'I know sweetie, settle yourself and rest, I'll wake you when dinners served.' she said stroking him with her finger.

"Alright. That's pretty coincidental though. Rumor has it The Taskforce recently set up on the planet as well. Anyways, should I open a tab for you then while I get you access to a room? And is there anything else you need?"

Jeremy found it rather strange, him showing up around the same time as The Taskforce. It could be coincidental, but still...

"Right. Well, I can be found anywhere on the main floor. If you can't find me, feel free to speak to an attendant. They can help you as well".

It was at that moment his phone started to ring. "Excuse me for a sec".

Jeremy walked over to a quiet corner and picked up. "Yes dad?"

"Just making sure you don't overwork yourself".

"Relax, I am fine".

"Really, because you sound a bit hyper".

"Just the Gand Opening. I am excited. Now stop worrying about me and get back to work".

"Well, I got you a gift. Got it during a deal with a friend. It's under the counter".

Jeremy hung up, and got back to work. The grand opening was always the hardest day, but Jeremy had practiced, and he had experience. He made his way to the counter, and found it. It was a silver, ruby eyed wolf ring. He put it on. "Cool".

Jeremy then continued to greet patrons, and waited to hear if someone needed him.

Xas glanced toward Jeremy as he sat down, wondering for a moment why this 'Taskforce' was on planet too. Maybe he'd stay a little longer than originally intended. His eyes were drawn back to Tawny and her questions, allowing himself a more relaxed expression while regarding her,"Well, my branch is concerned with things outside of Neolatian space, uh, where I'm from. Particularly I'm tracking an organization called the Red Death. With a name like that, I'm sure you can guess they're bad news." He paused on the question of his weapon, but only for a moment,"The firearm I carry is meant for extreme measures. I'll never use it unless I really have to, so even if someone like you turned out to be a criminal, I'd never use it on them. That said...I've had to fire my weapon exactly seven times."

He fell quiet for a moment, speaking up when a waitress stepped over to their table,"I'd like whatever the local carbonated drink is, and the house special to eat." He motioned lightly to Tawny, indicating that it was her turn to order.

Once the waitress left with their order, he continued,"You want to share why you're so worried about being shot? Someone's after you? If its because you're on the wrong side of the law, don't worry about me, not my jurisdiction. I'm only authorized to deal with specific threats."

Tawny felt a little more relaxed when shed heard his explanation, she felt awful for making him express it but safer. 'Im sorry...i can't really imagine what you had to go through,' she murmered sympathetically. Shed never even held a gun, and didn't want to either. 'ill have what he's having, and a few extra pieces of meat if you wouldn't mind.' she finished, turning to Shakespeare. Now more relaxed, her hands returned to the table and her slender finger traced the curve of his hknuckles playfully.. 'So, bump into a girl and buying her dinner can't be all that necessary, I mean... Well... You are rather handsome,' she suggested as her face turned a deep red once more and chuckled softly. Her thoughts were entirely non existent, and for once in a long time she was finally enjoying herself.

Xas rubbed his neck for a moment before returning his hands to the table,"I'd hardly say that what I've been though is enough to warrant pity or regret. I see myself as more of a knight sent out to slay the dragons and save the maidens." He was about to comment on chivalry and why it was important to buy dinner for pretty girls, when Tawny's fingers played across the calloused skin of his knuckles. For the moment he was a touched stunned, as she came right out and complemented him.

But she was dodging his question, and Xas was inclined to lay a hand over the fingers that teased over his own. His voice wasn't accusing, but rather light and teasing, as if he was asking if she wanted to go back to his room,"You didn't really answer the question, though. Who are you running from?" His eyes were locked on hers, a mixture of concern, and the colder look of a veteran. He honestly hoped that he wasn't being played again, and for once he could trust the woman that sat across from him.

Tawny sighed to herself and retracted her hands Back to her lap as tension pushed its way up her throat, to the point where she felt as if she were choking. 'I don't know Xas, ever since-... people are after me, I think they want to hurt me.' her voice snapped as overwhelming fear crept back into her. 'Im what is known as a Daedayre, Shakespare broke his wing, that's how I found him, he was being mauled by a dog. I cared for him and nursed him back to health. From what I understand, I died and...the rests fuzzy.' She clasped her locket in a tight grip. 'He felt me worthy of another chance, that's all I know. Because of that im worth hunting apparently.' she felt so vulnerable now someone else knew, but it was all she could do to choke back the tears. 'I apologise Xas, I'm sure you didn't need to hear that, just allow us to eat, and ill let you get on with your life,'

Jeremy came back to Tawny and Xas. Despite being somewhat annoyed with her, he was nice, and he did provide good service. "That name I mentioned to you before? Liam? Well, I heard just now a kid matching his description was seen getting into a fight outside the library. Though apparently it wasn't much of a fight and more of a beating. Just thought I would let you know".

Though, when he heard about Tawny being on the run, he was slightly concerned. "Well, we happen to be very discreet with patron information here, so I can guarantee they won't hear about you from us while your here. I deal in rumor, not giving out patron information. Anything I tell someone here has to come from rumors and statements others make".

This was a useful code for anyone who deals in information, something Jeremy seemed capable of doing. Not only did he give information therefore, but he also kept secrets as well. Jeremy seemed like a nice kid, but there was sure more to him that meets the eye.

The cop listened to Tawny try to explain the situation, clearly frightened and confused herself. He wasn't familiar with a Daedayre, but those linked with a companion animal was a different matter. He shook his head slightly,"There are those out there that like to take advantage of every little bit of power they can. A link like that," he motioned slightly to Shakespheare,"Requires a decent amount of power, and can command it too, if you know how."

He paused when Jeremy came to the table, listening about this information about a someone named Liam. He spoke up again when Jeremy seemed to lay down the hint of being an information broker, a surprising job for a child to one who wasn't familiar with that sort of thing. Xas gave the barest hint of a nod in acknowledgement, tapping the table with his forefingers,"Well, I do plan on getting a room here, so I might as well take advantage of any other services, right? Maybe we can talk later."

He glanced at Tawny then back to Jeremy,"For now, I think that we'll just have a relaxing dinner and enjoy the night."



Felicity couldn't help but overhear, and had taken her time to flirt with a male fairly close to where Xas and Tawny sat. The act was easy enough, after all, she was little more than a silly blonde with big breasts, right?

#, as written by Faithy
Isis was extremely pleased that the girl and her owl took the hint and hurried away from the table. Stretching back out, she grabbed a wad of napkins and cleaned up the water with a slight huff. Waving over the waitress, she ordered another water in addition to an entire pitcher filled with her favorite drink; kamikaze. She enjoyed being something other than a human because it meant she could drink as much as she wanted and still keep her head completely clear. Shifting her attention out towards the crowd that seemed to be thickening, the siren continued to search for her target. What she saw instead was a male with a gun smack right into the girl with the owl. Why was there someone wandering around with a gun? It was about this time that she wished she could read lips because she was very interested in what he had to say regarding the weapon.

There’s no way someone would know I’m here, right? Unless I was betrayed of course…

Tapping her fingers against the table, she picked up the empty glass that accompanied her water and pitcher of booze and poured it full. It was larger than a shot glass, but it was the perfect size for her. Tossing the liquid back into her throat, she swallowed it and nodded in satisfaction. It was perfectly made and she had a feeling she was going to go through several pitchers before the person she was waiting for finally showed up. The owl girl and gunman was nearing her booth, but they took another one in one of the other corners. They were close enough that she could easily eavesdrop without appearing to do so, and that was exactly what the redhead did. She was glad to know that no one had ratted her out, but was extremely curious as to who would want to kill the girl and who the male was looking for. It looked like the place was going to get a lot more interesting, which suited her just fine.

Upon hearing the news Jeremy presented about Liam, Tawny acknowledged him with just a nod, anymore and Jeremy would believe she was happy with his eavesdropping tendancies...she wasn't, in fact all she wanted was a hot shower right now, and the thought of Xaas arms around her again. She then listened to Xaas almost comforting information, he knew more than she did, about herself and she thought that merited a hug. She stood up, and in an act that she would normally laugh at, she sat on his lap, and wrapped her arms around his neck. Her eyes opened in Shock upon realising her actions, but she decided to do nothing about it apart from saying, 'Xas,

'Xas please, put your arms around me, i feel alot safer when im with you.' She was glad Shakespeare was still sleeping but she got the feeling, her little friend would feel no need to object. She caught a glance from a blonde haired woman, yet thought nothing of it,She was in the lap of the most gorgeous man in the room after all.
