@Cacunai & Fluffy:

As Cacunai entered the room, the Ramblers all scurried behind Yerun's protective -- well scrawny, but still relatively protective for rodents one hundreth of his size -- frame.

"Er... excuse me, boy, but is there something I could help you with?"

Yerun blinked and gulped. The Ramblers fell silent behind him. He stole quick glances at the unconscious Omis as his gaze darted nervously at Cacunai. His face went pale and he merely stared mutely at Cacunai without a word.

Boy? You all right? Er- is he all right?

She asked, gesturing expansively in the downed man's general direction. Cacunia felt distictly awkward, standing in the doorway of a tavern kitchen, with one of her many money pouches riding heavily at her hip. There had been no sign of the barmaid, and the boy was just staring at her mutely. The rats she could no longer see; they were probably behind the boy. She had missed the scurry.

@Cacunai:

"Boy? You all right? Er- is he all right?"

Cacunai's question made Yerun remember about what he just did with the gourd. Looking dolefully at Omis sprawled on the floor, he wondered if Omis would be ok ... Omis was not mean, just ... odd. And he never begrudged the boy anything, nor has he ever hit out at the boy ... unlike Lady Bretha.

Looking nervously towards Cacunai, he wondered if she could help revive Omis, or at least make sure that Omis was unharmed ... well, apart from the fact that he was hit by a big heavy gourd on the back of his head.

Looking at Cacunai, he made nervous gestures with his hand towards Omis, and then placed both his hands together at his cheeks, trying to imitate someone holding someone's head up. He was desparately trying to find a way to ask Cacunai to help see if Omis was ok, and he started moving towards the unconscious Omis on the floor.

Cacunai stood for a moment, thinking hard, and finally realized what the boy was asking. She mmoved toward the man and knelt by him, eyeing him for any visible damage. Maybe the kid's mute, she thought.

What happened here?

She asked, looking up from her inspection.

Watching Yerun's attempts to communicate to the elf woman Fuzzytail wondered why the boy didn't just said her what he wanted. He jumped on Yerun's shoulder and whispered to the boy, making sure that the elf doesn't hear him "Don't you know the human language?"

The rest of the Ramblers hid themselves in the pockets of the Yerun's jacket feeling themselves well-protected there.

Yerun reached Omis side, and stood in silence as Cacunai knelt down to take a closer look at Omis. As Cacunai was looking over Omis, Yerun felt the Ramblers scramble up his pant legs and his snugly in the pockets of his worn tweed jacket. He looked on nervously at Cacunai as she tried to discern what was wrong with Omis.

After a short while, Cacunai raised her head towards Yerun and spoke to him, "What happened here?"

Yerun shrugged his shoulders as Cacunai asked, and that was when he noticed that Fuzzytail had already climbed atop his shoulders, his ratty voice ringing out softly in Yerun's ears, "Don't you know the human language?"

Yerun winced with an expression of pain on his face as Fuzzytail asked his question, shrugging his shoulders again, this time almost tipping Fuzzytail off, he whispered back to Fuzzytail, ignoring Fuzzytail's question, "You ... you speak to her ... you speak to her ... ask her if Omis is alright ..."

((OOC: Any dialog between Yerun and the Ramblers cannot be understood except between Yerun and the Ramblers. All other people will just notice Yerun talking to the Ramblers in an odd scratchy voice. Yerun's words to the Ramblers are always in this colour.))

With a long-suffering sigh, Cacunai turned back to her examination, studiously ignoring the scritchy sounds the boy was making. Cacunai did not like magic, not a bit, and her rapport with animals was simply her understanding of them and her gentle words. She grabbed the downed man's arm and tugged, rolling him flush onto his back. She carefully held a hand over his nose and mouth and sat perfectly still for a moment.

He's still breathing, at least,

She mumbled, half to herself and half to her audience. Still no sign of an angry barmaid demanding to know what she was doing in here.

"You ... you speak to her ... you speak to her ... ask her if Omis is alright..." - mumbled Yerun not answering Fuzzytail's question. The mouse raised its brow... uh... the fur over its eye, but didn't ask again.

"Hey, Big Woman, the boy here wants to know if this ugly skrrr is alright." - said Fuzzytail with a loud voice to Cacunai and pointed with his hand at the cook.

Well, he will be, as soon as he wakes. He is still breathing, his pulse is steady, if a bit too fast, and the blood runs red in his veins. Now then, d'you mind telling me what this is all about?

Cacunai clenched her teeth for a moment when the rat chittered at her, but she turned on her heel to face the decidedly odd entourage behind her. Or in front of her. Whichever way you cared to look. She brought up a hand to dash her hair away from her brow.

Rather warm, isn't it?

Yerun watched as Fuzzytail addressed Cacunai. He hoped Cacunia wouldn't be too shocked at the fact that a rat was speaking to her in the human tongue. In fact, he himself couldn't figure out why Fuzzytail could speak the human tongue ... he would ponder further on it though, except at that very moment the door creaked open, and the rotund frame of Lady Bretha stepped in.

Lady Bretha made one quick sweep of the situation with her piercing glance, and then bellowed, "What the Coor is going on in here???" She looked towards Cacunai, "What are yer doing in the kitchen???" She glared at Yerun, "Boy! What just happened?? Why is Omis laying there??"

Thankfully she didn't notice the Ramblers, or she might just pick up a chopping knife and run after the rats.

Quickly, Cacunai executed a sweeping curtsey to Lady Bretha, hoping to mollify her slightly as well as cover for the boy and his pet rats.

Good lady, I am here because I heard a commotion coming from this very room. When I looked through the door, I saw this man stumbling 'round the room, cursing and holding his elbow as if it were hurt. Moments later, I saw him trip over something on the floor and fall. He has knocked himself unconscious. I am a healer, Lady.

The lie rolled smoothly from her lips; she added that last bit as an afterthought, realizng that that little fact may endear her to the landlady. Too late, she realized also that she had not used the same voice as she had at the bar. Oh well. Time is gone as is the sun, it is over, said and done. She mentally slapped herself. Repeating old adages to yourself will do you no good!

@Fluffy & Cacunai:

((OOC: Smooth Nai ... very smooth *grin*))

Lady Bretha snorted loudly as Cacunai made a sweeping curtsy towards her that seemed a tad bit flamboyant, "Good lady, I am here because I heard a commotion coming from this very room. When I looked through the door, I saw this man stumbling 'round the room, cursing and holding his elbow as if it were hurt. Moments later, I saw him trip over something on the floor and fall. He has knocked himself unconscious. I am a healer, Lady."

Lady Bretha glanced from Omis to Cacunai, and then from Cacunai from Omis again, her face an expression of skepticism, wondering how much stock to put into Cacunai's words. Glaring at Yerun again, she snapped at him, "Boy! Is that true?"

Yerun was all flustered, and just nodded in agreement to Cacunai's words. He didn't know what would happen though, if Omis happened to wake up and say otherwise.

Just as was his luck, a loud groan slipped from Omis' lips as he regained consciousness, "Oh! What? What?"

OOC: Why thank you!

IC:

As "Omis" woke up moaning, Cacunai quickly whirled, knelt, and told the man confidently, nodding sagely,


My dear sir, you are quite ill. You have a very rare disease that causes hallucinations and fainting! Thankfully, it has very few other symptoms. I should think you would want to get to your bed and have a lie down, til you're feeling better, hmmm?

She gave an enigmatic smile and put her head to one side, blinking innocently. Just to shore up her act a bit more, she shrugged back her short cloak from her shoulders and let it hang from her neck so she could rummage about in her healer's pouch, drawing out several small dried leaves and pressing them into the man's hand.

There, now just gulp those down and I'm sure you'll have no more trouble.

Ramblers sat quietly in the pockets of Yerun jacket, listening to what the humans were saying. Fuzzytail hid himself under the boy's shirt and looked outside through a little hole in it. He felt very important now because he was probably the only mouse in the whole Santharia who could pronounce the words of the human language. He didn't know why though, he just could do it from the moment he was born. The others often tried, but they always ended up with something like "Sqrrideeei" instead of "Friday" or "qloff 'o sqrread" instead of "loaf of bread".

"My dear sir, you are quite ill. You have a very rare disease that causes hallucinations and fainting! Thankfully, it has very few other symptoms. I should think you would want to get to your bed and have a lie down, til you're feeling better, hmmm?"

Fuzzytail was starting to like the elf. "Seems like you're going to get out of trouble," - he whispered to Yerun.

@Fluffy & Cacunai:

Omis woke up with a splitting headache. He blinked his eyes repeatedly until he could make out a cloudy face that was Cacunai in front of him.

"My dear sir, you are quite ill. You have a very rare disease that causes hallucinations and fainting! Thankfully, it has very few other symptoms. I should think you would want to get to your bed and have a lie down, til you're feeling better, hmmm?"

Again, Omis tried to make sense of what had happening and was happening around him, "What? What?" He distinctly remembered rats, and him looking forward to stew, and then ... "Hallucinations? Hallucinations?" Cacunai handed him a few sprigs of leaves, and he stared oddly at it. Hallucinations??? Ill???

Yerun silently drew in a huge breath of relief as he heard Cacunai's words to Omis. She was ... nice. Fuzzytail was heard whispering in his ear, "Seems like you're going to get out of trouble," Well, Yerun certainly hoped so. Lady Bretha was ... mean.

Yerun quickly rushed forward towards Omis side to help Omis up as Fuzzytail scrambled and dashed within the safe confines of his jacket. If Omis was going to be doing any suspecting, Yerun didn't want to be the one suspected.

Lady Bretha stared at what was taking place in front of her with narrow eyes. Omis? Ill? Hallucinations? What the--?? Sharply, Lady Bretha spoke first to Cacunai, "Well, illness or no illness, i'm not going to be paying yer for whatever those herbs are you gave, i didn't call for yer in the first place," then towards Yerun, "Well what yer waiting for boy! Get Omis back on his feet again! And get back to work! Both of yer!" she glared at Yerun just to make her point extra clear.

Lady Bretha turned again to Cacunai, and grumbled, "Well, out of my kitchen now, nothing to see here ..." With that she turned and made her way to the door.



Both of you should make one post before the plot moves on. :)
