Lucius

<takes his drink order, and walks back over to the snug.>

You lot remember that Scipio fellow right? Poor bugger is not looking at all well. More so than if just his conscience was troubling him.

<starts to hand out a drink to each person, bowing slightly when he hands Stalland his ale.>

He seems a nice chap, anyone friendly enough with him to find out if he is in good health?

Stalland

I know him to speak to, he has asked about Nencia's a couple of times...but if you want my opinion, he has a bad case of being a politicial pawn.

Lucius

I think it's more than that. It was him who dropped his glass, and he was damned near grey going onto green when he walked out of the door. If you hear enything, keep us posted.

Nikaneth
To Pio and Scipio " Yeah, see you soon ."
Looks round to see if Tess is bothered about speaking to him tonight.
" Stakk! "

Tess is still sat on the bar itself towards the far end of the taproom talking with three bravos.

She does look round and catch Nikaneth's gaze briefly but looks away without overt reaction.

Nikaneth
Catches barkeep and tells him to pass a discreet message to Tess that he will be back shortly but duty calls.
He checks no one is following Scipio out of the tavern and then leaves tavern to shadow Pio and Scipio in caase they hit trouble or are tailed.

Magg

<To Red, looks concerned.> You are unwell beyond your injury? I hope the affliction is not serious?

Sorry guys but my shift starts in two. <looks at Stalland> I'll probably be here tomorrow about twelve turnings... <blushes then leans over and gives him a kiss on the cheek> I really do appreciate what you said earlier. <stands up quickly and slips off to behind the bar>

Magg

<Smiles hugely> Is this night dedicated to the goddess of ardour or some such? Certainly it appears we are all beset by intention ardent or plagued by amour dysfunctions! <Laughs again> …This has the makings of a fine night indeed!

<to Lucius> thanks for the drink
<to Magg> no need to worry, probably just the inconvenient after affects of losing a little to much blood slowing me down, should hopefully clear up no trouble
And as for Scipio as much and as little as anyone else

OOC: Bit of a risk here; <To Magg>, If it is such a night, why not throw caution to the wind, forget what others may think, and take a risk with that fine girl from earlier?

Magg

<looks sideways at Lucius with a small frown> Ah well, Lesina's not really my type. She's pretty enough but vacuous for the most part with a bit of sly thrown in.

Besides she only acts on her mothers instruction and I have no desire to be entangled to such just yet!
<Laughs> I would definitely put her in the ‘plague by amour dysfunctions’ category!

<Smiles> Mind… feel free to try your luck my friend, she has been known to engage in more trifling dalliance, just not with me!
