Re: Denyssa and Leo
OOC: Set a year ago, on the last Celebration Day.

IC: Denyssa was inside the Inn's common room, it was early yet and everything was in order except that Leo had yet to come in from the woods with his catch. Her father had asked her to watch for him so when the young man did arrive he could have the pick of the hunt for Ilissa and the kitchen. In the meantime she was idly polishing some of the dishes that she would soon store away for the evenings serving.

Re: Denyssa and Leo
He had a pretty good haul.  A brace of rabbits, two quail and a goose.  He'd hoped for some big game, but hadn't been that lucky.  He had come directly to the Tower, he always did.  It wasn't that Terelon and Rebekah were his best customers, although they weren't bad, it was for another reason that he always came to the Gentle Breeze first.  He strode in with the gait of a boy who was used to moving quietly.  He saw Denyssa cleaning some dishes, and although he wanted to go straight to her, he went to the bar instead to see which of her parents would want to look over his catch.

Re: Denyssa and Leo
Denyssa looked his way as Leo entered the Inn, she thought about going to her father right away but decided to let Leo stew for a moment and maybe force him to ask her to go get one of her parents so that he could strike his bargain. She did look at him and give him a smile and a nod as she continued to clean the plate she was working assiduously on.

Re: Denyssa and Leo
Was it hot in here?  Leo felt like his face was burning up.  He shifted his weight and tried to look through the door of the backroom to see the owners.  He found his gaze returning to Denny again.  When she smiled and nodded, he cursed himself for being rude and not giving a greeting to her first.

"Hey," he said in greeting, feeling like an idiot for his lack of words.  "Your parents here?  I have some game to sell."

"Heya Leo, yeah they're around." Denyssa smiled at him and then flounced back into the kitchen to fetch her father. A few minutes later the came back in and told Leo, "He'll be out in a minute, he said for me to entertain you. Would you like something to drink?"

Re: Denyssa and Leo
Leo began to feel even more flustered.  It was frustrating, he could draw a bead on a bird in flight with stone-steady nerves, but, speaking to the elf girl made him tremble like a newborn fawn.

"Some water would be nice, thank you."

He had thousands of things he wanted to say and wanted to ask.  He daydreamed of a moment like this, yet now that it was happening, the only thing he wanted was to leave.  He wished he had Cohen's confidence or Articus' steel nerves.  Hell, even Ziggy's aggressive boldness would be better than his own silence.

"Water it is." Denyssa said, gliding back into the kitchen and returning with a mug full of water and a plate of sweetbuns. "Ilissa said you might be hungry." She set both on the bar and then stepped up on the stool she had to use to lean on it properly. "So, Leo, are you ready for celebration?"
