PostSubject: The Huckleberry Inn   Mon Jun 29, 2015 12:34 pm

First topic message reminder :

A medium-sized inn that was built along the most-traveled road many years ago, it has seen its fair share of travelers, soldiers, scholars and pirates. Owned by an an elderly man, Heirn Huckleberry, and his wife, Oul Huckleberry, the building is designed to be cozy and comfortable, like a small home.
Five individuals are currently employed here, each with their own specialties.
Heirn serves as the financial manager of the inn, and also as its night-time bartender, his dexterity as of yet unmarred by old age.
Oul spends most of her time continuing to dish out her special recipes for the hungry guests, and helps out with the cleaning as well. She usually gets help from the younger employees, due to her diminished stamina.
Larissa, the daughter of a Berkshire family sent to work here, tends the bar and the kitchen, having mostly learned culinary skills back home.
Trais, who may as well be living here, mostly cleans the rooms, but also serves as the sole waiter, acting as the in-between for the kitchen and the people.
Dhaein, who certainly IS living here, is essentially the man who keeps track of everything besides money, taking guest registrations and making sure everything proceeds as planned.

In the dead of summer, when the nautical nature of Monteport becomes rather attractive to many inlanders, the inn sees most of its guests, and indeed, it is very busy these days.

"Well, unless you two went and found one not on my handy-dandy 'Ghost Ship Registrar'..."

"Noooope, just idiots telling us to deal with the same old ones, even though there's nothing we can do about ghost ships other than make sure they can't enter the harbor. I'll get back to them when I find a necromancer that's also a merperson, go find the original wreck site..."

"Sounds a bit too specific to find anytime soon. Unless you know merpeople or somethin'. Water's tricky."

"I don't think I've read about a single necromancer that can breathe underwater in the archives."

"There's been uh.... Exactly two since we set up the archives. And they were both more likely to make ghost ships than get rid of em. Frank, Frank was a real dick. He ATE my hand. First time I had to replace Lefty."

"Wait, wait, you knew a merman named Frank? What? I thought they had like... Weird names and stuff?"

"Yeah, I think he was adopted or something."

Dhaein snorts. "I thought all mermen had strange names, maybe he was adopted right off the land."

He glances back at the kitchen, where the sound of heated discussion has just broken out. From the sounds of it, Larissa and Trais are having some kind of debate over spices.
"Should be out pre-tty soon." He tells the two guests.

Yanshi opens her mouth to reply but is cut off by a very loud rumble from Amelia's stomach, and decides to just close it again.

Mercifully, Trais appears before long, looking as though he was shoved out of the kitchen, struggling to handle two large plates and two paper bags. Dhaein is up and at his side quickly enough, taking the plates from him to bring to Amelia and Yanshi. Trais follows behind, his eyes on the floor, though he furtively glances up at the two from time to time.
"Here you are, madam and madam, a single order each of 'The Usual'."
The Usual, of course, is nothing more grandiose or fanciful than a simple plate of grilled steak and spiced potatoes. The basics.

"Mmmmmm it smells delicious...." She digs right in without a second thought.

Yanshi squints at Trais for a second, seizing up his behavior with an inward chuckle as she cuts into her steak.

Dhaein watches them with a satisfied smile for a moment, and sidelines to Trais, "There you go, wasn't hard, right?"
"Y-yeah, no, it... It was pretty easy, yeah! A-a piece of cake!" Trais gives a nervous attempt at a confident smile and a small thumbsup.
Dhaein snorts again, patting him on the shoulder. "Alright, go get back to your little debate, I'm sure Larissa isn't done pushing you around yet."
Trais tries to frame a reply, but only manages to mouth incoherently before Dhaein nudges him back to the kitchen.
Watching him go, Dhaein smirks with a bit of a knowing slant. "Somethin' about that kid, huh?"

"Heheheh, kids." Yanshi rolls her eyes while returning Dhaein's smirk as Amelia shovels her food, oblivious from hunger.

"Think we should say something?" Dhaein mouths to her with a playful grin, subtly pointing at Amelia.

Dhaein nods in simple affirmation, giving a small shrug. "So, 'Melia, how's it?"

"Delithious, huh?" He replies, mimicking her speech. "Thounds good to me."

"Not really, things have been really slow lately. I don't hear much about the other countries anymore, and even with all this shadow stuff or whatever going on, I'm not privy to enough or any of it."
He shrugs. "Sorry, gotta be boring today."

He shrugs. "If you insist, guess I can take my lunch break now."
In short time, he's grabbing a chair to sit with them, setting a plate of steak and potatoes on the table. There is, of course, a danish on the edge of his plate.
"I take what I said back, I think there's something, something up in Berkshire?"

"Eh, now that you mention it, seemed like there was some typical rich folk insurance fraud with a side of murder. I don't pay much mind to that sort of thing from Berkshire, usually the stuff's got more gossipy hearsay than a town drunk's ravings."

"Yeah, I can agree with that. Every week, it seems like. Gotta say, aside from all that shadow stuff, it's been really quiet here in the westies, huh?"
