A storm was brewing out on the waters. the wind howled into the bay and the smell of rain was in the air. Dark clouds covered the moon and the candles burn low and dim. The Shadow was quiet, the Lion Guard were off on patrols or some thing just as silly to him. Aela stood in the back watching over the mugs and bottles, counting the coins in her purse. Silent as always she would only give him a look from time to time. He had known the norn for many years back when she was called another name, and was known for being much louder. A bottle of Black Dog rum sat at his elbow, as he shook the dice in his hand.

Erik sat at the back table looking to the door, it was chilly for the Arch tonight. The rum kept him warm, he wished for his Wild Cat instead, but for now the rum would do. He tossed the dice playing a game of Street with himself he had gambled a lot in his youth and during his time in prison, but had just picked it up again. One did tend to need coin if they were to gamble, but this time he was the man with the dice. He hissed a curse as the dice landed up a seven. Taking his bottle he gulped down a few long draws from it, then setting it down and scooping up the dice again he started humming a tune.

As the storm rolled in, Taque Harrowtrace found herself caught in the middle of it. The young, hulking charr, drenched and bedraggled, stumbled into the Lion's Shadow Inn just as the downpour began in earnest - a deafening noise of rain on the hardening sand beaches. Counted as tall and bulky even among her Blood Legion compatriots, Taque also sported a striking scar on the left side of her face. A rictus smile, fur burned away to show the puckered flesh below and both ears missing to be covered by thick scar tissue.

She shook out her mane and blinked stupidly in the dim lantern light, taking in the patrons and bar keep in turn before limping up to the counter.

"Are you...still serving dinner?" she mumbles, a puddle starting to form around her feet.

Someone small tugged at Taque's clothing. A pale-grey asura (with only slightly darker grey markings), eyes that were little more than large, inky-black orbs and equally black hair stared up her her. Her hair was drawn up in twin-buns, and tied with green ribbons in elaborate bows. Her clothing was equally elaborate, a black base with the same shade of green trim and tarnished steel trinkets. The large mantle, frilly skirt, dozens of ribbons, and belt with an eye on It almost drew attention away from the thing on her back: a purplish shell. A purplish shell with several tentacles extending from it, lazily swaying with her movements.

Despite the general offness, a kind smile was on Zoujuu's face as she held up a bone plate with a warm, inviting cheeseburger on it. She seemed to be offering it to the female Charr

While the innkeeper Aela may have responded to Taque, the charr did not seem to hear her when a gray and tentacled creature nipped at her jacket. With a delayed response, her good ears twitched in tandem with her blunt snout down towards the direction of the burger.

"Hrm?" she burbled, glancing downwards. The young soldier gave a brief glance to Zoujuu, snapped to attention, and did a double-take for a split second as her eyes went wide. Mouth thinning into a nauseous grimace, soon Taque's tail was bristled while she back pedaled away from the counter.

"Hgh!" her growl was short and weak, trying to get other's attention, "Hey! Who let this thing...in...here..."

Back up against a wall, Taque 's head ticked to each patron and the inn keep for reassurance. Expression melting from anger to agonizing embarrassment, the charr was at a loss for words.

Erik looked up to the two by the counter and snickered. "Aint a fan o the rats me self their kitty but long as she pays for .. well every thing aint no one throwing her out" He tossed his dice to the table again and sign as it totaled up to eight. Scooping them up again he held on to them as he watched the charr and asuran, finding them much more entertaining.

Despite Taque's sudden outburst, Zoujuu simply stared at the charr with her characteristic kind smile. She remained quiet, for a moment, as she continued to hold the plate up. After Erik's response, she spoke in a wispy voice. "There is no need to be distressed. My friends are a prototype bio-magical device. They are friendly, but I can make them hide if you'd prefer."

The tentacles continued swaying lazily behind the asura. One became more active, and almost seemed to wave at Taque before returning to it's lazy swaying.

"No, no, ma'am, that won't," Taque blurts, clearing her throat and tone taking on a composed and dry professionalism "be necessary."

Standing rigid as if for bunk inspection, she gives Zoujuu a quick bow, even as she flinches with roving eyes towards the human man.

"Kitten? Kitten..." she mutters hoarsely at Erik, quietly. The female charr's voice was like gravel caught in an earth grinder and rumbled lowly.

She inches towards the counter again, tail swishing against the wooden planks of the floor and addresses the asura even though she looks straight at the wall behind the bar.

"If you do not work here, where did the food come from," she questions, shoulders hunched and eyes avoiding Aela's scrutiny. The puddle had ceased collecting rainwater, and now Taque's damp fur merely smelled of wet earth - quite pungent and slightly rank.

Gulping down some more of his rum he just smirks at the two. He goes back to rolling his dice hoping on another eight, as he keeps an ear and eye on the woman. Before long he goes back to humming his tune as well.

"I'unno," Zoujuu replies with a shrug of her shoulders and free arm. She finally sets the plate down next to Taque. "I just have them. They're good, though." She gives a nod of her head, reaches behind her back, and pulls out another plate with a cheeseburger on it. She hops up on a chair, and starts eating it happily.

The only patron who was watching from behind Zoujuu at the time does a double take, looks under the table, and then stares, rubbing their head. The patron finally stares at their drink of choice, gets up, and leaves the inn without further word. Zoujuu continues on her cheeseburger, unphased.
