"What would I owe you if I took your shelter?" he asks.

In reply to Barry (msg # 51):

Kestrel dipped her head to acknowledge Kaylee's gratitude, then answered Barry.

"One murder," Kestrel responded without hesitation, "I am undoubtedly saving your life, so when you are able to see again, you owe me as much. A life for a life."

In reply to Kestrel (msg # 52):

I single life wouldn't be the worst Barry has done, depending on the individual. "Would this be a murder that I would come to regret?"

In reply to Kestrel (msg # 54):

"Okay... " Barry replies, slight wary but comforted by the fact that it is not someone he wourld definitely regret killing. "What shall happen if I agree now but later come to decide that I don't want to kill whatever individual you may assign me?"

In reply to Barry (msg # 55):

"You owe me your life, so I suppose it would only be proper if you paid your debt in full," Kestrel responded coldly.

"Fair enough,"Barry responds to her answer. Debt. Barry was blind with no shelter. What other options did he have? Sent off alone, he could only walk aimlessly blind in a world of epics. It would be asking to die. "I will have time to recover from my temporary ailment before being tasked with a murder, right?"

In reply to Barry (msg # 57):

"I thought it was only your eyes affected, not your ears; I stated already that I would allow you time to recover," Kestrel retorted, "And should the time come that you have repaid your debt and continue to require my assistance, I supposed you may work for your keep."

"However," now she spoke to both Reckoners, "If I find any evidence, any reason, any rumor regarding either of you which puts my business or my people at risk, I will not hesitate to throw you back on the streets you crawled in from. I consider myself a generous woman, but neither of you have done anything to earn either my respect or my trust."

"Okay." He answers. "I shall take you up on this initial offer, but any further work will be left up in the air, on my end, until the time comes."

In reply to Barry (msg # 59):

Kaylee nods in agreement, "Alright."

She's a little concerned that Barry won't have the balls to kill whoever it is Kestrel wants dead, but that's not really any of her business so she keeps out of it.

She asks Kestrel, "You want me to start today?"

In reply to Kaylee (msg # 60):

"If you would like to start today, Sparrow, that would be ideal," Kestrel answered Kaylee, "Though I think your etiquette must be addressed before anything else."

She waved a hand to shoo the two Reckoners away.

"Wren will explain the rest, or someone will assist her. Leave. We're done here."

In reply to Kestrel (msg # 61):

My etiquette...? Although Kaylee figures that's fair. She's never been a people person and she swears too goddamn much. It only makes sense she might need some lessons on how to interact with others.

When Kestrel commands that the two Reckoners leave, Kaylee grabs Barry by the arm and starts leading him away.

In reply to Kaylee (msg # 62):

The tugging and pulling gets Barry by surprise as he half stumbles as he is led by Kaylee. Barry begins hating the blindness more and more for the forced dependency on others. He's glad to have a place to stay temporarily, but now he had to worry about going to the Gala blind, and recovering SUE at some point.

"So now what?" Barry asks as he's being whisked through the hallway.

In reply to Barry (msg # 63):

Wren sat outside the door, head lolling, having fallen asleep while waiting.

At the sound of the door closing, she stirred and awoke with an expression of upmost displeasure reserved only for those deprived of sleep.

"So what'd she say?"

In reply to Wren (msg # 64):

Surprised to find Wren outside the door, Kaylee neglects to answer Barry's question. Instead, she raises her eyebrows at the small girl and says, "Well, she told you to go back to bed. You've barely slept, haven't you?"

In reply to Kaylee (msg # 65):

"Um..." Wren blinked sleep out of her eyes and processed Kaylee's question.

"I wanted to see what happened...she's...usually pretty quick at tellin' people....her mind" Wren mumbled, "And I was right, wasn't I? That wasn't too long."

She yawned and stretched her arms high above her head.

"So what happened?"

In reply to Wren (msg # 66):

"Well," Kaylee appraises the girl with interest at her show of stubbornness. "I've got a job now. But apparently I'm meant to work on my etiquette," she emphasizes the last word amusedly. Although she knows the term, she doesn't think she's ever said it before in her life. Manners and courtesy were never something she'd had to work on before.

"C'mon," she adds gently, releasing Barry briefly to give Wren's shoulder a nudge. "You should go back to bed."

In reply to Barry (msg # 68):

"...ok..." When agreed tiredly.

"I can get somebody t'teach you manners, or you could jus' go down t'the kitchen and wash dishes...don't think there's too many people to offend there..." her voice was thick and slurred with fatigue.

She stretched her legs and began moving towards the staff stairs at the end of the hallway.

"I dunno what he's supposed to be doing. Learning Braille maybe..." she commented absently on Barry as she walked.

"Shes probably sleeping, she had a busy night," Wren snipped back.

"If I see her around, I'll let you know," she conceded, though you have a hunch she's going to be asleep for at least several more hours.

Kaylee follows after Wren, dragging Barry along with her.

"Sounds fine," Kaylee agrees to the dishes. "Anything I should know before I start?"

In reply to Barry (msg # 73):

"Yep," Wren brought Kaylee and Barry back to the room Barry had been left in before. Barry was roughly pushed forward until his hand could touch the doorframe and Wren continued, "If I see Lark, I'll send her this way."

She left then, abandoning Barry to his own devices.

"You'll be working with Heron," Wren said in response to Kaylee, "Just do what she tells you when, when she tells you, and you'll be fine," she paused to think, "And maybe try to not talk. You tend to try and threaten everyone you meet, and I think Kestrel is just waiting for an excuse to get rid of you two."

While Kaylee mulled over this mildly ironic advice of Wren's, she brought you to the far end of the main floor and to a set of double-doors in the back. You can see the shiny exteriors of ovens and countertops, and a few people bustling inside. One is an older woman, completely grey-haired but still standing strong, appeared to be in charge of a few younger individuals.

In reply to Wren (msg # 74):

Kaylee chews the inside of her cheek as she assesses the kitchen. She's never worked below anyone before and it's never been a real "job" like this either. Although she's a hard worker and her determination is likely unmatched by anyone here, she finds herself feeling uncertain and, damn it, nervous.

Taking a deep breath, she pulls her shoulder-length hair into a knot at the back of her head and then sets to work.
