The Outsider in the City [Open] [Possibly M]
« on: August 10, 2017, 05:57:16 PM »
It was late morning and Quietus walked through the streets like a silhouette, dressed in his usual black regalia with his greatsword displayed on his back, and his pale face cast in shadow by his wide brimmed hat. People stared as he walked past, clearly an outsider, and this is one of the few places he had been where he hadn't towered over everyone else.
He scanned some of the stalls, stopping to look at the trinkets on display and kept moving. Eventually he stopped outside a bookstore and stepped inside and out of the heat.
"Good morning, and welcome to the Tattered Page, we stay open through the afternoon stop stay as long as you like, is there anything I can help you with?" The speaker was an older, slightly overweight man in simple robes, standing behind a counter.
"No thank you," Quietus took off his hat and gave a slight bow, "just browsing."
"Very well, if you want someplace to sit and read there's a sitting area upstairs." The man started sifting through paperwork, appearing to do some sort of tally.

Marina sat comfortably, her finely booted feet up on a side stool and she sipped liquor from her hip flask. She flicked through the pages of the leather bound book with her slender fingers. It was dimly lit and a little musty in the upstairs room. This was often the place she came for some peace and occasionally she did purchase a tome or two.

She heard footsteps on the stairs and her brown eyes briefly looked up from the page.

"Good morning sir" she said turning another page.
She did not recognise the gentleman. He seemed mysterious and she was quite intrigued why someone would be in a bookstore so well armed.

"Good morning"
Quietus nods to the woman and goes to a nearby shelf and starts looking, pulling out a book and flipping through the pages briefly before putting it back on the shelf.
"So what brings you here?" Quietus speaks without looking back at Marina, still searching the bookshelf for nothing in particular.

"Nice enough place to catch up on some reading. Always more to learn.."

She examined his unusual clothing. He seemed foreign and unusual, she had definitely not seen him before.

"And yourself? What brings a gentlemen like you to this thirsty desert of a city?"

She closed the book on her lap and looked at him intently.
