In the mood for a new place . . .

Post by Le Valet on Fri Jun 04, 2010 2:54 am

The carriage pulled up in front of the grand white castle of an Inn on a mountainside in Rhy'Din. The driver hopped down from his seat, dressed in a black jacket with tails, a white dress blouse with ruffles down the front, black pants and black boots. He placed his hat atop his head and adjusted it properly.

There were still a few hours before the sun would come to rise, but he preferred to move at a quickened pace. He moved to the door of the carriage and knocked twice upon the door with a gloved hand. He then opened the door and stepped to the side. A gloved hand offered up to the occupants of the carriage.

He would help them step down from the carriage and then he would move to open the door of the Inn for them. He gave a bow to the couple as they entered and then he waited for them outside of the door. If they returned to tell him that they had procured a room then he would retrieve their bags for them. If they were unable to procure a room, he would help them back into the carriage and they would go look somewhere else . . .

As the carriage rolled over the streets and paths of Rhy'Din, he chose to close his eyes. It wasn't that he was tired or even needed sleep for that matter, he simply chose to ride that way. The lovely, sitting on the bench across from him, was engrossed in her knitting. The pounding of the horses hooves served as a rather relaxing sound.

When the carriage finally came to a stop he felt a small teinte of relief wash over him. He always tried to accommodate her every whim, but this trip had been a rather long one. When she had suggested they go find a quaint little Inn to visit upon for a time, he had thought they would travel to another state, maybe a nearby area where the residents lived in a similar time period as that which they lived in. But no, she wanted to take them half way across the planet to a time period that was centuries beyond what he was comfortable with.

When his man came down off the drivers bench of the carriage there was a slight jolt. Which told him that they were at their destination and not another one of those silly red signs or red lights. This time was so foreign to him. He wasn't even sure he would be able to adjust before she picked a new whim to thrust upon him.

The door opened and he rose from his seat. He hunched over as he moved to the door of the carriage. He ignored the man's offered hand as he stepped out onto the small metal step and then his other foot moved down to the ground. One more step had him completely free of the carriage and yet another had him clear of it enough to pivot and face the carriage.

He awaited his lovely bride with his left hand behind his back and his right hand down to his side. Once she was down he held out his right arm with his elbow bent. Once she placed her hand over his they would move towards the door of the Inn. At least this place was a castle in its former life, or so it seemed.

When the man opened the door for them he would allow her to step through the door first. He would be right behind her and he would offer her his arm once more. Smooth steps carried them towards the counter. There was no bounce to their steps as they glided across the floor.

Once they were at the counter, his left hand came out from behind his back. He searched for a bell to ring on the counter. If there was one there, he would most assuredly press the little button to make it ting. If not, a clearing of his throat would have to suffice. Then there was nothing left to do but await an Inn Keeper or Inn employee to answer the desk.

When he told her that he would take her anywhere her heart desired for the rest of eternity, she believed him. And she had been using that promise to her advantage for the better part of three thousand years or so now.

Her latest whim was to go stay in an Inn for a while. She was in the mood for a change of scenery. She had gone to the travelers and gone over their maps with them. She found this place called New Haven on the map. I simply sounded perfect. So that was where she chose to go. The travelers supplied her with the names and locations of some Inns in the immediate area. They told her that there were some rather interesting surprises that would await them there. So they were off on their next adventure.

While they traveled she knit. There was an acquaintance of theirs in their home town who had just given birth. So on her way to their new adventure, she knit a pair of booties, a scarf, a hat, a sweater, and a blanket. All in similar shades of powder blue for it was a male child.

She had just tied off the blanket when the carriage came to a complete stop and the driver came down off the bench. She put her knitting down in her basket on the seat and watched silently as her husband rose from his seat.

Once he was clear of the carriage she rose from her seat, and picked up her portefeuille in her right hand. She placed her palm into that of the drivers and stepped down. One hand held her skirts and her portefeuille, the other, the hand of their valet. Once she was down off the step, her hand moved from the valets to rest atop her husbands. Her fingers wrapped around his hand loosely.

She strode with him towards the door of the Inn. As they moved she looked around. She was taking in all the splendor that was the Starry Myst Inn. She couldn't see the gardens that the travelers had told her about. But the Inn looked like it was an old castle. It was quite majestic.

When the valet opened the door for them she released her husbands hand and stepped into the door. She waited for him within the Inn. It was rather modernized inside. They obviously had electricity, and it felt like they had a temperature controlling system of some sort. Not that temperature mattered to them.

When her husband stepped in the door behind her he offered her his hand again. She repeated her previous actions of setting her hand upon his. Then they proceeded to the counter to see about a room. She had a feeling that she was going to enjoy this adventure. She hoped that her husband found a way to enjoy it as well. He was not as curious as she, nor as adventurous.

He was actually in the kitchen making breakfast for himself, a bowl of Lucky Charms. He was just about to put the milk into the bowl when he heard the bell. "I guess breakfast will have to wait for a few minutes I guess."

He said to no one in particular. So he put the milk back into the refrigerator before he walked out of the kitchen and into the main area. He looked at the two that were standing there and he smiled as he walked around them to the back of the counter.

"I do apologize for my tardiness; I was in the middle of getting breakfast when you rang. But that is here nor there, so anyways." He bowed to the both of them. "Welcome to the Starry Myst Inn. There are five floors with a basement, the rooms start from floor three and up to floor five. The rooms on the third floor are the cheapest, while the rooms on the fifth floor are more expensive. The reason being is that the rooms on the third floor are only one room, rooms on the fourth floor have a single bedroom, a full bathroom, a kitchenette and a sitting room. The fifth floor has two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a sitting room and a full kitchen." He was getting a little out a breath so he stopped for a few moments before he started talking again.

"There is a ball room that takes up the entire second floor. On the first floor as you can see." He waves his hands over to the kitchen area. "Is the kitchen and the bar. There is always someone on duty at any time of the day or night. And they can pretty much make anything that you want." He motioned to the hall way behind him. "In that hall way you will find the hot tubs. In the basement is a sparring area, weight training as well as a sauna." He then motioned to the back of the Inn. "Passed the back door are the gardens and the hot springs."

He game them another smile. "Thank you for listening to my introduction. Would you like to get a room?"

The moment that he heard the man speak, he looked to him. He listened as the man spoke, but his mind spoke to him as well. He would have rolled his eyes had it not been rude. For his thought required an eye roll. 'Vers le ciel, n'est-il pas un espace de Rhy'Din, à laquelle nous Voyage, où l'on parle français?' Wondered only to himself of course.

As he listened to the entire long winded speal of the man, he knew that if they were to stay, there would only be one floor where the rooms would be sufficient. That would, of course, be the fifth floor. After all, it would never do for them to be cramped into a small room and their valet be in an entirely different part of the Inn. Whatever would they do if they needed something?

He nodded at the end of the man's informative speech. He was about to inform the man that they would take a room on the fifth floor when something else caught his attention. It silenced him before his crimson lips even parted.

{{To the Heavens, is there not a place in Rhy'Din, to which we travel, where they speak French?}}

What silenced him was nothing more than a gentle squeeze of his hand. The perpetrator of which was his wife. She spoke not a word as she had not been spoken to. But that gentle squeeze of his hand was enough to relay her message to him.

After all, they had not eaten for the duration of their entire journey. Were he to remember that, he would also remember to ask the most important question of wherever their travels took them. The sun would be soon to rise, so it was too late this night. But once the sun was again facing the other side of the planet and the darkness of night took over, she would like to have a break of their fast.

Dark eyes would slowly close with a slight downward tilt of his head. The movement, though brief, was smooth and flawless. Indeed, he did catch the meaning behind her signal. He himself was a bit parched. But the laws of the locals where in they stayed must always be observed. So looking to the man, with his head righted once again, he spoke with a impeccable French accent. His voice melodic and endearing.

"Forgive me, but what are the laws of this principality concerning hunting?"

He remained still and unmoving, not even a twitch of a muscle. Were it not for the movement of his jaw and tongue, and the sounds leaving his throat, one would think them both a pair of perfectly flawless statues. They even blinked so little that one might never even see them do so. Their eyes remained focused on the man to whom he spoke.

Soft laughter could be heard from outside just before the main doors open, and two young women entered. Aryanna and Shayla where returning to the inn as quietly as they could but for some reason they could not stop giggling. Once they had stepped inside and closed the door, they noticed two people standing at the desk being helped by the inn keepers grandson who's name had escaped them for the moment. The giggling stopped out of politiness. Two scents filled the air as the two ladies moved more into the room, one was the smell of lovely french perfume and the other was a warm sweet hard to place smell, both were very sutle but still noticable. At first glance at Ary and Shay most people just saw two young lovely ladies, that is until they noticed a few odd thngs. The pointed ears and slightly larger eyes came second to the large whispy butterfly like wings that fluttered behind them. Aryanna stood there at a level 5 foot 10 inches, dressed in blue jeans and a lovely teal blouse and her flame red hair hanging in curls around her face. In contrast Shayla stood at 5 foot 8 inches in black jeans and a electric blue shirt that matched her chin length hair. The girls gave bright lovely smiles and gave slightly bows to the lovely couple at the desk as the moved towards them "Bonne soiree. Noius en excuser. Nous n'avons pas l'intention de derangera vorte entreprise." It was Aryanna who spoke.

He was waiting patiently for the young man behind the counter to answer him. Perhaps he was trying to recall the answer to his query? Motionless, the pair waited. That was until the scent of (1)parfum Français filled the room, and was that? Could it have been . . . (2)pâtisseries? (3)Pâtisseries Françaises even. The scent filled his nose and the corners of his lips gave the slightest hint of a curl. It was almost a smile as he slowly closed his eyes for a brief moment.

His right foot moved to step backwards, to be followed by the left. With each step taken he was moved backwards, in an arch, around his bride. His posture never wavered, his motion was smooth. When he came to a stop, his back was to the counter. He still held his brides hand upon his own, and she would have been slowly spun to face the ladies with him. And because he had moved as he had, he was not blocking the view of the young man behind the counter.

Seeing the two lovelies that had entered the room, eyes closed and his left foot went behind him as his leg curved to the right. His left hand was rolled outward from him thrice as he bowed to the pair. As he righted himself he looked again to the ladies.
(4)“Bonsoir jeunes . . . Fées. S'il vous plaît, rien ne vous interrompre, ne pense rien de lui.”

Almost as an after thought, he realized that they were perhaps in need of service as well.
(5)”Avez-vous besoin d'utiliser les services de la réception? Nous serions heureux de partager du temps.” Left foot was followed by the right in a forward progression of four steps. He turned to his right as he moved. His movements would have moved his bride to remain by his side. Their new position allowing them to easily see both the pair of fairies and the young man behind the counter.



{{(1)French perfume (2)pastries (3)French pastries (4)Good evening young . . . Fairies. Please, you interrupt nothing, think nothing of it. (5)Do you need to utilize the services of the front desk? We would be happy to share time.}}

She had been standing there, motionless and silent, with her hand atop her husbands. The young man behind the counter had fallen silent for the span of a few moments. She too caught the scent as it filled the air. The curves of her chest were already squeezed tightly into the bodice of her gown. And when she caught whiff of the scent, her chest rose with the deep breath she drew in through her nose. Her eyes closed slowly and the tiniest tip of her tongue was seen peeking from between her crimson lips. Her tongue slid along her mouth from one corner to the other and then retreated back into her mouth. Her chest slowly lowered and her eyes opened as she exhaled.

As her husband moved backward, arching around her, she lifted her left foot off the floor by a matter of inches. The toes of her right foot rose from the floor and she was balanced on the slender three inch heel of her lace up boots. His movement allowed for her to spin on said heel without the hint of motion. Her skirts hid well the movements that allowed for the slow twirl. Once he stopped, her motion came to an end as well.

As he bowed to the fantastiquement belle fairies who now stood before them, her left foot was lifted and moved backwards. Her right hand took hold of her skirts and she bent her knee as she lowered herself into a formal curtsy. As he righted himself, she did so as well. But she remained silent, with her hand upon his, watching the ladies.

Then he changed their position again. He faced them to the right. This allowed for them to see both of the parties with whom they had been engaged in conversation. This meant that to respond properly to anyone whom might address them they would first have to turn their heads. But at least they did not have their backs to anyone. For that simply would not do. It showed a serious lack of breeding and manners.

((I do apologize for the late response work has been hectic.))

He tilted his head a little looking at the man. Then looking up as he thought for a moment. "Well, that would depend on the type of game you are hunting. I mean here on the grounds of the Inn, hunting is forbidden unless it is game from the forest. And if you are talking about hunting in another fashion. I do believe that in New heaven and the surrounding areas there is a saying. "If you are going to hunt, do not get caught or kill your prey"". So he stood there for a moment before smiling at the couple.
Then he heard the giggling of two ladies and he smiled at them giving them a nod before moving his eyes back to the direction of the couple. It was then when he heard the conversation between the couple and the two girls. He knew the two girls since they lived in one of the cottages out in the garden. He understood what they were saying, but for him to try and speak it.....well that was another story, he knew enough to speak it for the most part but he had not spoke French since his high school days. So he decided to wait for a moment. "Is there anything I could help you with ladies?" He just smiled again again all the people that were in-front of him. The Inn was getting rather busy and he was liking that.

Both girls gave more formal curtsies though given what they were wearing it wasn't as elegent as the ladies. Shayla took a postion at Aryanna's side but slightly behind her as Ary moved so that she could answer both people at the same time. A warm smile and a nod both to the gentleman and to Tokeda, ahh yes that was his name, "Thank you for the kind offers gentlemen, but we were just on our way to our cottage. The cab let us out in front so we figured it would be easier to pass through the inn instead of going around through the garden." Her Irish accent was very soft adding a gentle charm to her bright personnality. She turned to face the couple more, "I hope you choose to stay, it is very lovely here. I am Aryanna and this is Shayla we live in one of the cottages out in the garden. If you happen to be out there sometime, please stop by, guests are always welcome for a visit when we are home." The fairies were always open, polite and very sincere, they led busy lives but always had time for friends and guests when they were home.

Once the man had figured out what he wanted to say in response to the question, he was given full attention. The words were listened to carefully, as the answer was important. So they were not to hunt on the grounds of the Inn. That was acceptable. Within the town they were to avoid getting caught, or at the very least, avoid deaths. That too was acceptable. There were always ways to fill ones needs and avoid detection. After all, it wasn’t like they were going to walk through town grabbing up beings and biting them in front of busy crowds, only to let them fall dead. That would be a classless way to handle having a meal.

So with this new information he looked to his lovely bride. He wanted to know if she agreed that the laws were tolerable to her as well. She was a bit more adventurous than he and would, more than likely, be dragging him into town at some point or another.

As proper as she was, she had not been born into the same world as her husband. She married up. And there would forever be a part of her that found pleasure in feeling the panic from one, whom she happened to be eating from, as they felt their life draining away. The look of sheer terror as she trained them until there was but two drops of blood within them was euphoric to her. She could get used to having her dinner brought to her, but she loved the death. She thrived off of it. And the laws of this territory were set to rob her of that joy.

So it required some thought before she could answer her husbands look. Could she live without that thrill? But didn‘t the man behind the counter say something about not getting caught? He did, didn‘t he? That was her answer, she simply wouldn‘t get caught. Simple enough. With the completion of her thoughts she looked to her husband. With a slow blink she barely moved her head for a single nod. He would know that she was agreeing to the laws of these lands. After all, there were always loopholes, oui‘?

Seeing that his bride agreed to the laws of the perish, he returned her nod. Before addressing the man behind the counter once again, he would look towards the fairies. The lovely who had spoken to them had the most magnificent Irish accent. He would probably not be able to duplicate it as he responded to her, but he was a man of many languages. “Gabhaim buíochas leat as do chineál na mban a thairiscint. B'fhéidir déanfaidh muid ghlacann tú suas ar go luath sa todhchaí.” He had thought correctly, the accent was nothing close to perfect. But he at least had his pronunciations correct. He gave the young ladies a simple nod of a bow

Then he returned his attention to the man behind the counter. He spoke in English once again.
“We will be taking a room on the fifth floor. You did say that they were the biggest suites, oui?’ We will need boarding for the two horses that pull our carriage as well. We will pay a week in advance.” By paying in advance, he could leave early if the need arose. Which it sometimes did in their travels.

He lifted his free hand up at the side of his head. He snapped twice. This was his signal to the valet who was waiting for them outside. He would be the one who would have the coin to pay for the room. Then he would be the one who would bring their belongings up to the room. So he was needed within the Inn at that moment. He spoke again to the man behind the counter.
“I assume coin is an accepted form of payment in this establishment.” After all, it was accepted almost everywhere on the planet.

The valet was waiting outside the door. He had opened the door to let the two young fairies in when they had arrived via motorized vehicle. Other than that, he had not moved an inch since he had taken up post. He was actually just enjoying the view. The place was rather lovely. But he kept looking inside to see if his master called for him or was headed for the door at any point.

So when he was snapped for, he knew it, and quickly. He opened the door and rushed inside. Of course, it looked more like a quick walk than the true hustle that it was. He had no wish to be accused of meandering. When he arrived at the side of his master, he bowed to him and his bride. Then he bowed to the two lady fairies, then to the man behind the counter. He stood still then, with his hands at his sides, awaiting instruction.

The girls gave another curtsy to everyone and moved toward the garden exit. A warm smile was giving to the couple. "we hope your stay is filled with everything you are looking for. There are many adventures to discover. Pleasant eve and we hope to see you soon." Shay had stayed quiet because she knew she would just babble and she didn't want to scare them away. "Good eve Tokado have a great day." With a wave they disappeared out the door and into the gardens.

(I an very sorry about the late response once again, Work has been hell.)

He smiled at the man before he turned his head and smiled to the two ladies. "Good eve to you as well, And you have a good day as well." He nodded to the two ladies then to the new man that ran up to the guy before looking back at the man. He then leaned down and pulled a book out of the desk and placing it in front of him, he opened up the book and got to the page that he needed to get to. "Excellent, I will giving you room 503, You could use the elevator to get up tot he fifth floor. It will be 5 gold a week, and paying it in advance is fine as well as if you would like, you could set a tab for it as well so that you could pay it all when you leave. He took a pen and wrote down room 503 and stopped as he looked at the man. "Excuse me but I did not catch your name." He just gave the man a smile as he waited for a response.

With the young ladies leaving their presence, steps were taken to move them in the quarter of a circle to once again face the counter, and the man behind it. Their valet was just off to the side of where they stood, and closer to the counter. He listened as the man informed him of the price of the room. Five gold a week was an excellent deal. He wondered how the Inn could stay open for such low rates.

He nodded to his valet to pay the man. He would pay for one week in advance. But he had a question of him first.
“Tell me young man, does that include boarding for the horses that pull our coach?” Most Inns had a separate charge for the boarding of animals. And if there was a fee, his valet would retrieve sufficient coin to pay that as well.

Which left the last details of their transaction. A name was to be given, and a key to be received.
“You may put the room under Lord Francois and Lady Solange Davignon. We will pay for one week in advance, and if we stay beyond that, we will run a tab, if that suits you?” That way, if his bride decided that she was enjoying herself too much to leave, they had room to extend their visit.

As her husband moved to face the counter again, she repeated her previous actions of spinning on her heel of her boot. She seemed to be working as a pivot for his movements. Something that she would have found humorous were they in private. But they were in public, so she would let the laughter remain contained.

She listened as the men talked. Which was what she was supposed to do. But her undead heart nearly leapt from her chest at the mention of an elevator. She had heard of them before, but had never actually seen one. She definitely wanted to do so now. The question was, would her husband agree to it? That was something that would have to be addressed once they were alone.

As the men spoke, the valet removed a leather pouch from his belt. He set it upon the counter and began to retrieve the five gold from it. His motions were paused as his master asked of a boarding fee. If there was such a fee, he would require more coin from the pouch. So he awaited the answer from the man before proceeding.

Once the proper amount of coin was produced and passed along to the man behind the counter, the valet would move to retrieve the bags from the coach. He would rush as quickly as he could, and return to the side of his master to move with them to their room.

He would carry up their bags for them, and then once they were settled in for the day, he would tend to the rest of their luggage. After that, he would tend to the horses and the coach. Only after all that was done would he be able to tend to his personal needs.

He just smiled at that man. "Well for the housing of the horses it will be a copper a day per horse and that will provide a brushing and feeding. For your coach you could put it into our store house for vehicles. And it is perfectly fine to put a tab down for the rest of your stay." He smiled as he leaned down and grabbed the key to room 503 before looking back at the man. "Sir pardon my intrusion if that is what it is. But are you allergic to the sun? If that is the case would you like it if we placed a blanket or something of that on the windows before you go up there?" He thought it was a reasonable question and if he was out of line then he would fix that.

A slight nod was given to the young man behind the counter. The valet made sure to pay for a week of stable fees for the two horses while he paid for the room for a week. There was silence during the exchanging of coin for key. If a signature was to be made, Francois would move a gloved hand to place such signature upon the ledger. If not, he would remain still as glass. Then the young man asked about the sunlight.

Both of the Davignon’s were covered from head to toe with either cosmetic or clothes. Francois even wore a powdered wig upon his head, Solange a smart hat. Perhaps that was what gave hint to their allergy. Regardless, they did have said allergy and it pleased Francois that the young man asked of it. For he himself had not thought to mention it.

So it was with another soft nod, accompanied by a slow blink of the eyes, that came with his reply to the young man.
”Oui, we are allergic. I thank you for your consideration of our needs. I would like to take you up on your offer. It would be far more pleasing to sleep while protected from the suns damaging rays. Merci beaucoup monsieur. After all, they might currently be completely covered, but that did not mean that they chose to sleep that way. And cosmetics and clothes could only protect them so much.

Once the key was obtained by the valet, the Davignon’s would pivot from their current stance. One more glance back to the young man before they would move further.
“We are sorry if we disturbed you. Thank you for checking us in.” Slow steps moved them towards the stairs. They almost seemed to glide as they moved.

Once they began to move from the counter Solange was ready to burst with excitement. But they were moving towards the stairs. Her eyes dropped to look upon the floor. When she thought them to be far enough from the counter she spoke, barely above a whisper. ”Francois, puissions-nous prendre l'ascenseur, s'il vous plaît, j'ai tellement envie de rouler dans un.” Without a lift of her head, she raised her eyes towards his face. If he looked upon her face he would see the look that humans back on Earth would sometimes call ‘puppy dog eyes’.

Oh how those lovely eyes could melt his cold, undead heart. He did turn to look upon his wife when she spoke to him. And he saw the look upon her face. How could he resist her? He could not. And so it was in response to her look that their steps veered from the previous path that would lead them to the stairs. Instead, they were not slowly moving towards the elevator.

They would wait at the elevator for their valet to come with the overnight bags. The valet could ride up with them to their rooms. Once they were inside their rooms, he could go deal with the horses and carriage while the Davignon’s readied themselves for sleep. After the valet was done, he would be free to go and get himself food or whatever he chose to do. So long as he was where he was supposed to be come sundown.
