Sokoya patiently endures the old man's study of her, and curtseys politely once he introduces himself.  "I am being pleased for meeting you, Captain..." she begins, her face falling as he mentions payment for the journey.  Blushing, she fumbles for her small coin purse.  "Forgiving me sir, it is not occuring to me to be paying..."  She tips the contents of the purse onto the empty seat and considers them - a scant handful of platinum pieces, a couple of dozen gold, and several silver and copper. 

She gives the captain a shy smile.  "I am thinking this is not being enough for such a trip, yes?  I am not carrying many moneys with me most times, there are being so many who would be liking to steal it.  I can perhaps be playing my musics for entertainment in return for transporting, or perhaps you will be trusting me for paying when we are returning?  My family is being well known in shipping, I am thinking - I am being Su'acon."  She looks hopefully at the captain, praying that he won't put her off the ship.

Captain Cirrus listens patiently to her broken common. He continues to smile and when she is finished he reaches forward and plucks one gold piece from her pile.

"You need not fret mistress.  Master Points has asked that you pay.  He was not specific on the price.  We do have a stage in the dining room.  If you would like to perform your music, songs or anything else it will of course be welcome and appreciated.  I will have one of the crew show you to your room.  If you have any questions or problems, please bring them to me."

He rises and puts out a hand to her. Even bent forward, he is overwhelmingly large.

Sighing and staring out over the landscape, Teldyn did his best to not be seen.  He felt like brooding, although why he just couldn't put his finger on.  He thought of leaving, but he stayed, at least till he found out what was going on.

I really shouldn't be this moody, he thought.  Just..., not the Points greeting I am used to getting.  Wonder if anything else has happened while I have been away.

He let his thoughts muddle about for quite some time, as she absently stared over the side of the ship.

Xandius perks up at the four escorts.  He shuffles towards them with what would qualify as enthusiastic steps.

 

“An escort to the Captain?  How wonderful!  I was just planning on spending the day standing on a corner giving wisdom to those in need.  Lead on my fine fellows.  If the captain is in need of a private session, I am only too happy to comply, yes.”

Xandius follows his escorts.

Suki breathes a sigh of relief and smiles brightly at the old captain.  "Oh, thanking you sir!  I am being very much grateful for your kindness!"  She puts a small lavender hand in his, feeling dwarfed and almost wishing he had stayed seated but trying not to show it.  After the pleasantries she scoops the remainder of her coins back into her purse and attaches it to her belt, patting it slightly to be sure it's secure.  Bobbing another curtsey to the captain, she glances around for the crewman and waits to be shown to a cabin.

(Just a point of clarification... this smallish room has a largish window and is in fact the Bridge) -Points

Jaggie waited patiently for Sokoya to return from the captains quatres. Four crewmen did seem a lot for such a young drow, and four more for the elder Xandius seemed simply over the top.
Worse case she knew they would simply be returned to Stormreach. No harm would come to the two of them. Not to her fellows. Still she worried for Sokoya.
"Hard life for such a young child," Jaggie murmured to herself. She checked the taunt of her lute strings for the third time before finally deciding she wished to check on the whereabouts of the young drow and the old man that had been taken below. "Deriaz, I'll be back shortly. Don't get to close to the railings, 'kay?"
With that Jaggie went threw the door she has seen the crewmen take the two stowaways, keen on finding Sokoya and ready to request that she be placed in a cabin near her own.

A smallish but stout woman in crew uniform just dodges past Jaggie on the stairs.  She rushes in to the bridge and snaps to attention in front of the Captain and Sokoya.  He smiles and orders her to assist the young drow woman to the guest quarters in his section. "I hope that you will find them comfortable." He seats himself and all perceived menace or presence is removed from him.

The crew woman turns to Sokoya and motions for her to descend "This way maam..."


                        *****                        *****                        *****

The four crewman with Xandius move with him towards the stairway.  They are halted in their progress by the large form of a pink warforged blocking the entrance. The one who appears to be the leader coughes and says "Please excuse us maam.  Can we help direct you somewhere?"

Xandius brightens at the sight of the large pink warforged.

 

“Jaggie!  These fine men are taking me to their Captain for a private wisdom session.  My reputation must be spreading, yes?  You can come too if you need some as well.  I have not yet had my morning meal, oh how I dread the thought of spending my precious coppers on that brigand Cog’s pea soup.  But what choice do I have?  Can’t very well eat the coppers can I?  Giving the Captain his session should not tax me overly much as I did have quite a restful sleep, yes.”

 

Xandius chuckles, lightly smiling.  He absentmindedly scratches at his right hip and looks over his escorts and their impressive uniforms.

 

“You younglings should wear something less restrictive so you can move about more freely, plus you all seem rather tense.  Take some deep breaths and relax.  You’re welcome.”

((catching up after coming back from vacation, thanks for being patient))

 

::Lyrica quickly stows her gear in the quarters assigned to herself and Jeatra, and after opening one of her numerous boxes and retrieving a special set of magical pipes. She makes sure everything else is secure. One rather large box and bag is removed from the magical backpack, immediately the scent of fresh baked sweet rolls fills the small cabin.

********

She takes a short detour to the airship’s mess, and hands off the box and the bag to the cook there. Her face all full of smiles and laying on her thickest charm as she indicates the contents of the box, a half dozen crystal bottles of a very fine lavender colored liquor. “Spring Wine for the captains table. If he will have it.” And then the contents of the bag, layer upon layer of fresh baked goodies, sugar candies and other confectioners sweets. “Something to make your work easier, good cook, your choice of when or if to serve them.” And almost as an after thought she hands over a small wooden box, upon lifting its lid it is revealed it is full of some extremely exotic spices, all in whole form. Attached to the lid are two very fine metal rasps (to grate the spices for use). “And a gift especially for you, dear Chef.”


*********


Upon hearing the muster call she begs leave from the cook and heads upstairs, her eyes bright and cheerful as she stands next to Jeatra for the speech.  Rubbing her arm with the opposite hand, she listens intently to Points’ speech, letting her bardic senses rise fully so that she record it properly in her memory, moved herself to a few tears that she quickly brushes away at certain times. Jeatra’s warmth as the blonde halfling leaned against her was a welcomed presence, and she resisted the urge to hug her companion as the speech reached its climatic end.

 

Lyrica smiled and nodded her agreement with many of Points words, and removed her hand from her arm to give Points a genteel bow, for once silent as she ran over the speech again in her mind.

 

**********

Lyrica’s smile broadened as Jeatra pulled her to the side of the ship, raising her hand to play with an errant strand of Jeatra’s sunlight colored hair as they passed over the falls near the orc caves. Though Points’ speech still replayed itself in her head, she divided her attention to Jeatra’s enthusiasm.

"Apologies," Jaggier stepped out of their way, pressing herself up against a wall. "I was simply looking to see what had become of my fellows, the young drow and- Oh, elder Xandius."  She offered a quick nod of her head in respect. "I should- My apologies again. I'll leave you fine folk be. Perhaps once matters are dealt with, I could be guided to lady Sokoya's cabin, please. Till then," she moved out from behind them and set about following wherever her feet took her, "good luck in handling the wise words of elder Xandius. I'll see about finding him something to eat."
