Joy -Dream a little Dream-: "Luke." Said as he starts to walk away."If you need to talk, Mori and I, we will be here a few more days. After we need to go back for a bit. I'm just not sure that the twins can look after my roses." Then she looks to the plates. "Thank you for the food."
Holden (Glassbone bani Verditius): "What about you?" He asks, eyes fixing on Joy once again. "You visited. You seen the kid. This mean you're going to be leaving soon?" Then almost as an afterthought he adds. "Not that I'm trying to shove you out the door. Just curious more than anything."
Holden (Glassbone bani Verditius): ((dlp))
Joy -Dream a little Dream-: She looks back to Holden then. She studies him through long lashes. "I am sure you are one that would have many stories to tell. Perhaps some day, I could hear one."
Luke (Custos): "Okay, chica. Might take you up on that." *He hesitates on the way into the kitchen, to offer a smile back, then ducks in, out of sight. Using the newly handled door to shut behind him*
Luke (Custos): ((Works if those two posts are flipped around. **g**))
Holden (Glassbone bani Verditius): "Gone in a few days, huh?" He replies, even though the comment wasn't directed at him. Tilting back another shot he makes a face and slaps the glass back down. "Well, try not to get possessed by anything unspeakable before you go. I know what you dreamspeakers are like." Taking a deep breath he thinks that over. "A story, huh? Might be I could think up of a good one to tell. In fact... I know a pretty good story about another Custos who used to hang out here. An Umbrood Custos in fact."
Joy -Dream a little Dream-: "An umbrood? At least mine just claims to be a psychic, taught by aliens." She states this so calmly. As though talking about an adorable kitten. "And as far as possession goes, I don't think Mori would allow that to happen."
Holden (Glassbone bani Verditius): "It called itself Mi'ni'ni." He recollects. "Odd little fella. Used to follow me around all over the place. Anyhow, Mi'ni'ni was what you would call a memory spirit. The living embodiment of a cherished memory. I remember one time I made a deal with it. I offered it a mermaid's tear in exchange for a memory. You see, where it came from every memory of every person, animal, spirit or.. whatever could be found contained in droplets of water that flowed from a great fountain."
Joy -Dream a little Dream-: She leans towards him slightly, her head tipped to one side, causing her long hair to cascade down past her left shoulder. Then her hair shifts, as though being picked at, or preened by an animal. She is very clearly listening. "Did it ever do harm?"
Holden (Glassbone bani Verditius): "Harm?" He replies. "I dunno if I would call it harm. Caused trouble now an again but let's face facts. Barely a soul ever walks through that door that didn't cause trouble in one way or another. At least the ones worth remembering any how. This is just one of those places. It attracts chaos."
Joy -Dream a little Dream-: "I will take your word for it. But I honestly don't see how this place would not attract a bit of trouble." She takes a sip of her ice tea. "A little chaos is so bad, can keep things fun."
Holden (Glassbone bani Verditius): "Actually, now that I think about it. Mi'ni'ni was with me the night I tased Jarrod." He says with a sly little grin. "Ahh, good times."
Joy -Dream a little Dream-: Joy blinks in disbelief. "You tased Jarrod?" She seems amused. "I hope you get along better now?"
Holden (Glassbone bani Verditius): "Tased him. Broke a lamp over his head. Oh, there was this one certamen duel involving magic and combat where I Knocked him out with a punch." He recollects while stroking his chin thoughtfully. "Poor fella sill says he wants vengeance to this day. All in all though, he and I get along well enough. Why do you ask?"
Joy -Dream a little Dream-: She smiles. "Because sometimes its more fun when folks can find a way to get along." She stands then and stretches slightly. "I think I am gonna go get some meditation done, out in the coolness of the garden. It was a pleasure to meet you Holden."
Holden (Glassbone bani Verditius): He rolls his eyes at that. "He had it coming. Both times." He replies flatly. "Anyhow, pleasure meeting you Joy. Think I'll be heading up as well."
Joy -Dream a little Dream-: "Take care Holden..." Said as she heads into the kitchen, towards the gardens.
Luke (Custos): *Luke is hanging around, waiting for the Mages to finish talking, nibbling a cookie. He smiles to her as she passes, then pads back out through the door....using the handle! ... to retrieve his feather. Holden is given an uncertain look, and he attempts a smile* "She's cool, man. Known her for years."
Luke (Custos): *Then he retrieves his feather, and pads for the guest room, anxious to be away from the grouchy Hermetic*
