Need a place to drink, sleep or lay low? You've come to the right place, buddy. The tavern serves all manner of beverages and the inn right above has cheap beds for renting.

Doun noticed the new arrival to the tavern and motioned for him to come to the counter where Doun worked.

Aeron wandered in, dogs waiting dutifully outside. With a heavy sigh, they sat down at the bar.

Doun looked up at the newcomer. "I trust you get 'em mutts under control? If you don't, I'm gonna have to ask ya' to leave."


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

"I do. They'll stay right where they are, and I'll have them move if they get in the way." Aeron answered calmly.

"As long as they ain't messing up my floor or disrupting my customers, they're fine. Now, can I get ya a drink?"


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

"Wine, please." Aeron answered. "And some bread, if you have it. I've been travelling a while."

"Ey! I made it!" Alexis said, running in and plopping her bag on the end of the counter.

Doun poured a glass of wine and got some bread from a shelf, but didn't hand them over until he received payment.


message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

Aeron cast a glance to the person who'd just arrived, then glanced away, taking in the space around him.


message 12: by [deleted user] (new)

Reaching for his wallet, Aeron looked to the bartender. "How much?"

"Alexis! There you are!" Doun said. He looked over at the customer and slid Aeron a note with the bill.

"Sorry I was late, the boys had trouble getting outta bed," Alexis said.

"Lucky you it's been really slow today."


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

Checking the note, Aeron pulled the required amount out of their wallet and left it sitting on top of the note.

"I said I was sorry, cut me some slack."

Doun put the money away and handed the customer what they paid for.

"I'm not mad. Just try to get them going a little faster, in case we aren't so slow."


message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

Aeron watched the exchange for a moment, then turned his gaze to a small book he carried with him. Patiently, they waited. They weren't in a huge rush.


message 20: by ☣ EMᕈRESS SERΔ ☣, Illustrious Empress (new)

☣ EMᕈRESS SERΔ ☣ (empress-sera) | 798 comments Mod
"Yeah, well you try gettin' them outta bed."


message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

"Thank you." Aeron gave little smile, then went back to their book, eating and drinking with one hand and holding the book open with the other.

Doun didn't responded, he just wiped the counter with a rag.


message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

Finishing the wine, Aeron closed their book and tucked it into their cloak. "Would you happen to know where I might find some work?" they asked.


message 24: by Hunter (Totally NOT a communist ☭), Glorious Emperor (new)

Hunter (Totally NOT a communist ☭) (codenameagentmcmuffin) | 842 comments Mod
"Depends on what kind of work you're lookin for." Doun answered. "I could always use someone to clean up so we can serve food and drink like we're supposed to."


message 25: by [deleted user] (last edited Mar 11, 2016 06:33AM) (new)

"I'm not looking for a specific job. I'd be willing to help in whatever way I can." Aeron answered.


message 26: by Hunter (Totally NOT a communist ☭), Glorious Emperor (new)

Hunter (Totally NOT a communist ☭) (codenameagentmcmuffin) | 842 comments Mod
"Well as I said, we could use some help cleaning up. You'd be wiping down tables, cleaning dishes and sweeping the floor. Not the best pay in the world, but it's something."


message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

"True. Would you be willing to trade work for room and board?" Aeron asked. "I don't have anywhere to go at this point."

"Tina'll let you stay at the inn if you work here. I've known her almost her whole life and she's always eager to help."


message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

"Sounds agreeable to me. I can have my dogs remain outside, if that would make you more comfortable. They're very well behaved, and I'm sure some of them would make very good guards."

"As long as they don't disrupt business, I don't care where they are, really." Doun replied. He turned around and went through a door behind the bar, coming back moments later with a woman.

"This is Tina." he said. "Tina, this is...um...what's your name?"


message 31: by [deleted user] (new)

"Aeron. And I can promise the dogs will be no bother to your business."


message 32: by Hunter (Totally NOT a communist ☭), Glorious Emperor (new)

Hunter (Totally NOT a communist ☭) (codenameagentmcmuffin) | 842 comments Mod
Tina smiled. "It's nice to meet you, Aeron! Doun tells me you'll be working with us for now, is that right?"


message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

Aeron nodded. "That's my hope. It's a pleasure to meet you both, and thank you."


message 34: by Hunter (Totally NOT a communist ☭), Glorious Emperor (new)

Hunter (Totally NOT a communist ☭) (codenameagentmcmuffin) | 842 comments Mod
"Well, as long as you're working here, you're welcome to stay at the inn free of charge!"


message 35: by [deleted user] (new)

Aeron smiled. "Again, thank you. If you could find me a space to leave my belongings, I could start as soon as possible."


message 36: by Hunter (Totally NOT a communist ☭), Glorious Emperor (new)

Hunter (Totally NOT a communist ☭) (codenameagentmcmuffin) | 842 comments Mod
"I leave chests and wardrobes in every room for people to store their belongings they bring. Come, I'll show you to your room." Tina said, walking to a separate door to the side of the inn, then up a flight of stairs.


message 37: by [deleted user] (new)

Aeron followed quietly, a smile playing on their features.

"Right here, second door on the right." Tina said, opening the door. Inside was a single person bed, a wardrobe and a chest at the foot of the bed. There was a small window that gave a view of the marketplace just outside.

"It's not much I know, but this is better than the streets, right?"


message 39: by [deleted user] (new)

Aeron nodded. "By great measure. I can't thank you enough." they smiled, quickly stepping into the room and placing his cloak and bag on the bed. Returning to the hallway, Aeron smiled again. "You don't have any problems with animals, do you? I have a small dog that dislikes the cold and I'd prefer to have her indoors. She won't make a ruckus or a mess, I can assure you."

"As long as they don't cause any sort of problem here, they're welcome." Tina assured.


message 41: by [deleted user] (new)

Aeron smiled. With a little smile, they let out a small, sharp whistle. In trotted a happy corgi, willingly sitting at Aeron's feet. Aeron signaled the dog into the room and in she went, finding a spot on the floor and promptly falling asleep. "I'm ready to start when you are."

"Go talk to Doun. I'm the innkeeper, but he could use some help cleaning up the tavern."


message 43: by [deleted user] (new)

Aeron nodded, and walked back down the stairs. "Doun? I'm ready to start work."


message 44: by Hunter (Totally NOT a communist ☭), Glorious Emperor (new)

Hunter (Totally NOT a communist ☭) (codenameagentmcmuffin) | 842 comments Mod
"Good." Doun said. He handed Aeron a clean rag. "You can start by wiping down the tables."


message 45: by [deleted user] (new)

Aeron took the rag from Doun and headed for the first empty table, moving mugs and goblets to one side as he worked. Aeron said nothing, his focus on his task.

"You need me to get anything from the market?" Alexis asked Doun.

Doun opened a pantry and saw they were out of bread.

"Yeah: Bread. Don't get too much or we might not get to sell it all, but get enough so we don't have to make constant runs for more."


message 48: by [deleted user] (new)

Aeron continued around the tables, quick and efficient. A few minutes more and all the tables were wiped down and the empty goblets were all neatly lined up along and empty section of bar. "What's next?" Aeron looked to Doun for the next task.

"Dishes." Doun answered. "There was a party here last night and most of the dishes were used, I'm still trying to clean most of them."

"I'm on it," Alexis shouted. "Be back in a bit."
