Olivia felt absolute calm in her exhaustion. the water drowned out he overall scent and the cool caress of the water carried her physical aches away, she closed her eyes and her mind drifts.
Olivia's world began to stir. sunshine glared in her weakly opening eyes. She murmurs and struggles a little, confused by the new surroundings. then she noticed She was slumped against Ox; Crocuta sat next to him, his face shadowed by a heavy hood. Olivia pushed herself upright on her chair making an effort to sit straight with composure, eyes still half close, not realized she was now only partially gross now, but dry overall. "good morning.. where are we?" She slumps back, still waking.
"Back in Easterwatch."Ox grunted. face looked an awful mess, less bloody then she'd last seen but still swollen in areas, Croc's face deep in contemplation. Looking past them it appeared they we're in a public house. the place nearly empty bar the two active staff and about 3 patrons minding their own business over breakfast.
Olivia fished around in one of her belt pouches and pulled out two silver and some coppers between her fingers, waving over one house staff. Olivia handed her the coins " Something to eat would be great." The waitress took the pay and lingered taking a closer look then she had been able too at these three ever since they came in. "thank you" Olivia exaggerated, annoyed.The waitress disappeared to the kitchen. "gods, some damn people " she bitched quietly.
They sat in silence, simultaneously going over in their mind's what had transpired the night before.
"Croc" Olivia piped up, still witha grumbly tone ebcause of the waitress. He arched his gaze "Yeah?"
She looked away from his eyes "Thanks.. I owe you " She looked to ox briefly in his beaten up visage "both of you. "
They sat quietly for a little while longer, until Lokkan pushed his way through the door and strode over to their table, nodded to Crocuta and looked Ox and Olivia up and down. "well you found one of them, I don't know who that turdburger is; anyway - " He pulled out a chair and sat down "This Gnoll situation is getting out of hand. and by the look of you three dicknozzles, you know that. " He patted Ox on the shoulder [color=#40BF40 "I guess Nathanial didn't make it, tough break pal, you get that on the big jobs " [/color]
Olivia scrunched her nose, Nathanial who?
Lokkan continued " they're getting more brazen. the storehouse fire, the captain of the guard missing. I mean, for fuck sake! I thought between you, Crocuta, Nathanial and Ox you'd be able to handle a war pack of Gnolls"
" Things got complicated, Lokkan" Crocuta interrupted.
" Tell me about it "Lokkan's tone dropped
The Waitress returned as the table fell silent again. She laid down a tray baring sliced bread with a side of butter, a platter of bacon, hot potato, eggs and a pitcher of water with three chipped, cream ceramic cups and wooden plates
As soon as she was gone , Olivia leaned forward on her arm "Oh let me, please. yesterday i could count to ten on my fingers and wasn't wearing a perfume of someone's insides, Ox was far more handsome and if Croc didn't didn't show up we'd be midnight snacks. Something sick was going on inside that camp and I'm pretty sure this going to get worse if Razorgore has his way. "
" The Gnoll's got the numbers too, trust me. " Ox added, pulling the tray closer to load up a plate for himself.
" Rotgut is an ass too " Olivia took a piece of bread and began loading things on top of it.
