{oh haha fail :facepalm: I've fixed it now ^^; }

Elodi woke before dawn. She was annoyed at herself for not getting a better night's sleep, but she knew that this morning, there would be no more rest. The she-cat stretched and yawned, then uncovered her equipment from her sleeping place. She glanced around for Skallaq, and found him curled on the floor nearby. Her brow furrowed and she threw a pillow his way--it slid to plop gently against his head. He curled closer in on himself, but otherwise did not acknowledge her and continued to slumber. Sighing, Elodi strapped her belt on, snapping her rapier into place, and replaced her beret on her head. She turned to look in her makeshift mirror--a large, broken piece of glass--and gave herself a satisfied smile and nod as she walked over to her desk. Taking a clean sheet of paper and a quill and ink, she wrote a note.

Señor Skallaq,
I have gone for desayuno. I shall of course return with something for you as well, amigo.
Remember: mi casa es su casa. Hasta lluego!

~E


The she cat left the note on the desk, waiting for her new friend. With that, she turned and strode silently across the room
to the divider. Hoppingout, she did not slow, but instead continued at a run to leap off the tower. Holding onto her beret
with one paw, Elodi fell through the air. She snatched a rope of clothesline as she fell past, which flipped her around
and sent her back upwards. She landed expertly on the rooftops, smilingto herself. And with that, Elodi turned her sights
towards the Glitter Box.

{I think you forgot to put the rest of that post in...? }

Skallaq's good eye flicked open as Elodi vanished out of the room. Pushing away the pillow gently back to the rest, he uncurled and rose. His claws flexed out as he sunk his upper body down into a bowing stretch, a yawn parting his jaws. He arched his back, feeling the joints crack with much satisfaction. He shook out his mottled fur, blinking away the remaining sleep that clung to his body. Skallaq sniffed at his pack, repositioning his items back onto his back and clearing away any trace that he had slept on that spot, other than his scent. He felt much more comfortable with his things on, they gave him a sense of protection. Even though he trusted his new companion, he couldn't help but feel nervous. A trait he grew on the days of living by himself, fighting for survival.

Skallaq started to cross the room, but halted as his eyes noticed a slip of paper on the desk, that had not been there the night before. He stepped closer, rising up to his hind feet and reaching a paw out to grab the note. He read it quickly, his mind taking a few moments to decipher the Spanish--he had taken it upon himself to educate himself slightly on the language before he came--and then put it back down. His tongue flicked around his muzzle, and he removed on of the feathers from behind his ear. He pulled the pot of ink closer, and dipped in the tip to write a short reply in case he was gone when she returned.

Elodi,
I am leaving to find chakula as well. I shall be returning on quick paws, if I am not back before you. Asante again.
Skallaq


He pushed the note away, and then spat on his paw to remove the ink from his quill. Skallaq replaced it behind his ear, and then gave his paws and face a few quick groomings. He glanced back at the cozy little sanctuary, then darted out of the tower, surveying his surroundings for a moment. He had no idea how to work Elodi's neat little lift, and didn't want to try without permission anyway. He finally chose to take a risky path; springing from the opening to land on the small ledges protruding from the side of the tower, skittering his way down until he reached the church's roof. Skallaq swished his tail, glancing back at the hidden home, and then darted away from roof to roof.

Smiling and answering all the many greetings thrown at her, Elodi waved her way into the small bar. It wasn't near as full as the crowd that nightfall attracted, but there were still a fair amount of cats bouncing about. The Glitter Box served as restaurant by day, dance club and bar by night. Strutting up to the cat at the bar--an orange and cream spotted she cat that sometimes had a harsh tongue--Elodi greeted her as well, then ordered, "Two ratones asados and two leches, to go, please." The bartender nodded, "Coming up!" and she turned to prepare the order. Within minutes, the savory smell of cooking prey filled the air. A few seconds more, and Elodi was handed a paper bag that wafted about the scent. She opened it and peered inside, finding the small box of roasted mice and two tightly-closed bottles of milk. Elodi resealed the bag, then reached into her leg pouch and pulled out some coins. She rolled the payment onto the table, "Gracias, amiga!" and turned to leave. As she pushed open the curtains of the Glitter Box, Elodi immediately got a running start towards a wall. She ran up it as far as she could, then reached with the paw that wasn't clutching breakfast. She grabbed onto an uneven brick and swung herself up. Landing on a wooden platform sticking out of the building, the calico lept upwards again, now able to seize the roof tiles and haul herself up. Once her hind paws touched the roof, Elodi started off at a trot towards home.

~~~

Her paw scrabbled against the tower, and she pulled out a specific brick. She was standing beside the lift access, but had left the lift up that morning so as not to wake Skallaq with it's racket. She assumed he would be awake now--or at the least, he would be soon. Elodi pulled a small lever that was inside the crevice she had made, and the replaced the brick. The lift clonked down within seconds, loud but efficient. The small she-cat carried the paper breakfast bag onto the lift, setting it down carefully as she used both paws to activate the lever. Elodi held onto the bag as soon as she removed her paws from the machine, stopping it from clattering away. Reaching the top of the tower, the calico stepped off the lift and ascended the stairs. She pushed open the door, and quickly realized that Skallaq had gone. Pulling the box of roasted mice out of the bag, she crossed the room and set it on the desk, opening the small box and nibbling on a mouse. She slid the box over slightly, set the bag on the floor, and began reading the note that had been scratched out underneath her own. She made assumptions on the Swahili, using context clues. Elodi shook her head, confused at Skallaq's note. If chakula did mean breakfast, or food maybe, why had he gone for some when Elodi had written in her note that she would gather a bite for the both of them? 'Oh well, no matter', the she-cat told herself as she sat down and pulled out a bottle of milk, popping the top off and sliding a fairly clean-looking bowl towards her to pour the cool liquid in and take a few refreshing laps, 'he can have his comida when he returns, if he wants it.'

{ lol <3 }

Skallaq swished his tail as he landed on another roof, rising to his hind paws to better gaze across the town. His whiskers twitched as the many smells wafted past, ranging from cooking food to the odd scents of soap and perfumes. The young tom dropped to four paws, continuing to trot along the shingled housetops. He pricked his ears, the sound of a dog barking made the fur rise sightly on his spine. He slid over to the edge of the roof he was on, peering down to see a large brown mutt baying at three pigeons on the road. Snorting scornfully at the canine's stupidity, Skallaq pulled himself away from the gutter and plodded onward. He realized his was walking in circles, though, but didn't mind much; as he was thinking of returning to Elodi's home soon. She had mentioned to fetch something for him, he didn't want to appear rude by rejecting anything she might have for him.
Skallaq gave up with his search, pointing himself back to the church tower. He was slightly ashamed of not having anything to bring back, for his knowledge of the town was quite limited. He scurried along the rooftops, tail raised and ears perked forward. A sudden banging from below made him halt and dig his claws into the shingles. He cautiousy padded to the edge of the wide roof, paws supported by the gutter. He glimpsed a tiny dark brown blur shoot away, and the lid of something round and shiny gray tumbling to the ground with another crash. Skallaq flattened his ears, recognizing the blur as a fleeing kitten. He watched it disappear beyond a fence, and then heard angry human yelling. Curiosity aroused, Skallaq crept to the edge of the house, then leaped onto a tree branch close by. He scrambled down the trunk, landing nearly silent and still. He watched a male human--fussing with annoyance--pick up the silver disk and put it on the large silver metal can, scooping up the dirty mess the kitten had caused. Skallaq sniffed with disgust, fur prickling, then sped away after the kitten's trail.
He slowed to a quick walk, senses alert. He was now heading through a fence-line between two yards, through unkept bushes and vines. The kitten's scent was becoming fresher now, and the ground was specked with blood. Skallaq realized the thing must have hurt itself on the silver can. He at last spotted the small cat, deep brown with near black smudges and soft white paws. It was trembling, and dark red blood stained its left flank. Skallaq approached quietly, tail low and good eye calm and unthreatening. The kitten twisted around, spotting him, and let out a terrified mew. "Hush, little paka." Skallaq soothed it, giving it a quick lick on the head. It stopped its attempts to leave, and the trembling softened a bit. He turned his head to the wound, rasping his tongue across the bloody mess. "What is your name?" He whispered between licks.
"Temna." The kit replied shakily. Skallaq could sense it was female. He finished his cleaning of the blood, and sat up, ears brushing the brambles that crisscrossed over his head. "W-who are you?" She questioned, blinking her wide orange-red eyes. Skallaq swished his tail. "I am Skallaq, little paka." He introduced. "Will you be alright now?" The kit stared solemnly back up at him, eyes almost scared again. Skallaq felt a rush of realization. He recognized Temna's unkempt, thin appearance and lonely expression her eyes displayed. "You have no family, do you?" He murmured, curling his tail around her small form. She shook her head, trembling more. Skallaq licked her again. He wondered for a moment what Elodi would think, but he pushed the thought away. He wouldn't leave the kitten to die. Her wound was still in need of treating, and she had no clue as to how to live alone so young. Skallaq plucked her up by her scruff, and she fell instantly limp. He raced out of the brush and tangled growth, and set to moving on ground level. He didn't want to risk falling with her, so he didn't head up high yet. They met no dangers, luckily.Only when he reached the church did Skallaq scamper up. He manuevered with much agility up the tower, using four paws to keep himself balanced as he reached the landing spot and stairs. Now the slight apprehension flared up in his mind. He realized he was bringing this young kitten into his new companion's home, without permission or even knowing her reaction. He clenched his throat, and then padded quietly up the stairs, pushing through the flap, and entering the room.
He set Temna on the floor, and his gaze rose to meet Elodi's.

[haha it's okay. And lols np xD ]

Elodi's eyes widened with surprise and her fur prickled as she saw the scrap of a kitten that Skallaq returned with. She bit back the urge to raise her lip in a territorial snarl, and instead hurried to her two chests that held her valuables. Quickly locking them with her claw, Elodi turned back to the two felines. On the strange kitten she smelled sickness and fresh blood, the vile scent of trash, and even from this distance she could see the dirt and grime matted in the kitten's once-pretty fur.

"Skallaq, who is this gatita? She smells of the streets. Why have you brought her?" Elodi questioned, her ears back slightly underneath her beret. She was not intentionally being rude--she was only protective of her valuable items, of which she had many. Who knew if this young scrap might carry diseases? Or if she was a theif? Elodi placed a paw on the hilt of her rapier, more out of habit and to garner a sense of safety than of feeling threatened by such a measly kit.

Skallaq immediatly knew it had been a bad idea, as soon as he saw Elodi's expression. He couldn't believe he had been so naive by bringing Temna into his new friend's home, completely expecting her to greet it with at least a sympathetic attidude. He realized now how stupid his idea had been, yet again he had failed another soul. He lowered his multi-hued gaze, ready to clutch the kitten's scruff. "I am sorry. I should not have brought her." He murmured, his tail flitting between his hind legs in a gesture of submission. He completely ignored her questions, not on purpose, but because his mind was so muddled--he couldn't really find an answer that he seemed even realistic. He shivered slightly, his whole body deflating. Again, he would back out. Again, his young stupidity made him yet again the cause of another's issues. He didn't know what to do. Guilt and self-pity consumed him, making him plop down on his haunches from the strain of it.
Sheesh, he was being a weakling. No, a complete loser. Could he not even stand up for himself? Here he was, wallowing in his dumb problems that no one cared about in front of the one cat who had tried to become his friend. And he had ruined it by following the kitten's scent. Could he not do one thing right? Now Temna was trusting him, and he had to care for her. He had taken her, and sealed a pact in that single moment that could change his whole future. He had not even thought of how he would take care of her. Maybe he had expected Elodi to help. He need to stop thinking the world was full of caring, loving individuals. Elodi's protective actions had proved that the world was not perfect. Skallaq needed to grow up, and take hold of his existence.
Taking a slow breath, the young, gray tom raised his head, squaring his rather small shoulders and facing Elodi with a half-determined, half-apprehensive expression. "Elodi...." He hesitated, bolstering his confidence--which was unfortunately quite low--, "The kitten means no harm...she has no family and is wounded. If you want her to leave, just say the word and I will take her with me--for I bound myself to her...I cannot kuachana ni, I cannot abandon her now." He finished, placing a paw around Temna's quivering form.

Elodi nodded, "I know, just...keep her away from my valores, alright?" She fluffed her tail up once, then pushed her fur back down as she turned and flopped onto her pillows. She watched the two cats, noting how Skallaq's paw was wound protectively around the tiny kit. She felt a hint of jealousy shred through her. He was one of the first cats in a long time that might have been a true friend to her. Now he sees this kitten for a moment and they are the best of friends? Elodi swallows her emotions, telling herself that this is just another bit of evidence that she cannot trust other theives, no matter the charm they may hold. Elodi glanced to Skallaq, nodding to the kitten, "What is her name, anyway?"

Skallaq blinked as he watched Elodi move away, a prick of sadness shot through his heart. She seemed rather colder now, uninterested and less friendly. His ears dropped slightly, and he nudged the kitten away, towards the place he had slept the night. His eyes flicked back to Elodi as she spoke again, hope flaring in the chartreuse-colored one. "Temna." He meowed simply, trying to maintain eye contact. He was shattered--he saw he had lost her trust. He gave a soft sigh, wondering if there was anything he could say. Anything to bring back the friendly face that had welcomed him the night before. He opened his mouth, struggling for a moment, then closed it again and turned away. He padded to Temna, sniffing her wound, then edged away. He pushed out the flap, grief searing his heart. His throat clenching, he sat down and dropped his head, barely feeling the warm morning sun on his pelt.

Elodi watched the kitten out of the corner of her eye. Temna curled up on the floor, a large yawn escaping her young jaws. Sighing, the calico nudged a pillow her way. The kit squeaked in surprise as it touched her back, jumping to her feet. Elodi's tail disappeared behind the divider flap before the kit said anything. Elodi stepped out into the sun, and saw Skallaq sitting with his head down and shoulders drooped. Elodi supressed a sigh, and bit down her guilt at having hurt him. He was the one that hurt her in the first place right? 'Just get over it, Elodi. It's no big deal. Win him back--you know you can.' The calico smiled and purred for only a second as she neared Skallaq, stepping lightly.

Skallaq's ear flicked at movement from behind. He stirred, but didn't look around. He could have been dreaming, and then he would have been disappointed to not see Elodi's form. His tail twitched as purring sounded. And it sounded real enough. Skallaq shifted again, this time lifting his head and turning it to gaze back. He stared for a moment into her smiling face. Smiling? Had she forgotten the earlier tensions already, or was she masking her true feelings? He blinked, unsure of what words to say. In fact, he couldn't think of anything at the current moment. Great spirits above...find you tongue! His mind urged him, but he continued to stare blankly at the calico she-cat. Finally shaking away the entranced look, he shifted his paws nervously. "Salamu, Elodi."

Elodi smiled and blinked a few times, and she lowered herself to sit next to him, "Skallaq," she greeted, "I'm headed out. Would you like to join me?"
She was planning on searching for jobs nearby, but she was also testing him. Would he disagree, not wanting to leave Temna alone? Would he insist that the kitten accompany them? Or would he get fed up, decide Elodi wasn't worth his time, and leave with the kitten in tow? Elodi wanted a friend, she wanted a partner. Someone she could rely on, and trust. She realized that maybe the kitten Temna would grow on her, but she wanted to see where Skallaq stood. She didn't want to be a third wheel, and she didn't want to be abandoned again. She wanted to know that some people could care about her as much as she did them.

Skallaq brightened considerably. His tail tip rose into the air, ears pricking again at her words. "Really?" He couldn't help but ask, though didn't really expect an answer to that. She seemed to genuinely want him along. He blinked once. "I would love to accompany you." He inclined his head, extending his left paw slightly in front of his body in a gesture of thanks. He uncoiled his tail from around his paws, rising quickly. He was thrilled she had invitied him, but a tremor of worry momentarily made him hesitate. Would Temna stay put while they were gone? He didn't want the kitten to be causing wreckage in Elodi's lovely home, certainly some of the blame would fall on himself. While he would gladly take it, he didn't look forward to being on unfriendly terms with the calico. He flicked his fluffy tail, glancing to the flap that concealed the hidden room. "Should I inform her we are leaving? I'll make sure she knows to leave everything alone." He asked, finishing with an almost teasing tone. Slowly, he was returning to a happier mood.

Elodi's smile wavered, "Erm, sure. Yeah, that's fine." Elodi swallowed her worry, and gave a small smile Skallaq's way. She had quite a sum of valuable items in those chests--from coins to random various trinkets, to weapons and even a suit of chainmail armour if she might ever need it. She had hobby items as well, such as horse riding equipment fit for herself and blacksmithing materials, etc. Elodi hoped that Skallaq's trust in the kitten was well-placed.

Skallaq noticed Elodi's smile falter for a moment, and his tail tip drooped. His smile vanished, despite her returning happy expression. He gazed concernedly at her, hoping desperately that Temna was as obedient as she seemed. Then again, she had been abandoned and alone, hurt and fleeing for her life when he found her. She might be too traumatized to touch anything. Skallaq slipped back inside, spotting the dark kitten curled against a pillow, paws twitching and ears flicking as she dreamed. He padded quietly over, but she woke up as soon as he walked past. A fearful mew escaped her jaws, then she relaxed as she recognized him. Skallaq halted and bent down to gaze gently into her wide orange eyes. "Elodi and I will be leaving for a bit. Promise to not touch anything of hers in this room, save for this pillow." He told the kit. Temna nodded, her tail trembling. Skallaq licked her once, soothing her, then darted back outside.

Elodi waited for Skallaq to return, and as soon as he did she smiled to him. Her back was to the edge of the tower, but she just winked and stepped off the edge. Somersaulting several times in midair, Elodi fell. She rolled when she landed, absorbing some of the fall, and she ended on her feet. She turned, looking up to see Skallaq was just a dark shape atop the tower.
"¿Tienes miedo, Skallaq?" she teased, raising her voice to reach him. She waved once, smiling widely up towards the tower.

[sidenote....the translation on google for that is wrong ((it's dumb)), but she's saying "Are you scared, Skallaq?" like teasing ]

Skallaq blinked as she disappeared, but he knew better then to think she had simply fallen. He sprang forward to peer down as she tumbled through the air, watching her land and roll to her paws in a swift movement. Impressed, but not showing it, he smiled back. His ears pricked, and he quickly translated her words. A smirky expression appeared on his face. "Oh no, rafiki yangu." And he too took a small step off the edge. Instead of somersaulting like Elodi, he soared down, catching a clothesline with one paw, flipping over it, and sailing downwards like a diving bird. His feet crumpled to the ground as he landed, and he did a quick tumble to end up on four paws, in a single motion like the she-cat. He shook the bits of debris from his coat. "Hebu kwenda." He grinned, good eye blazing.

Elodi laughed as she ran to catch up with him, and she flicked her tail at him as she raced past. She jumped from rooftop to rooftop, looking back over her shoulder every now and then to see Skallaq running after her. Because he was on four paws instead of two like her, he was a bit faster and soon caught up to her, and matched her pace. Elodi looked to him and let out another laugh, her face wide with a bright smile, "I bet we'd make a good team, eh Skallaq?" she called, "Just carry your weight!" Elodi and Skallaq finally reached their destination--a board posted near the front of the Glitter Box, covered by a sheet that made it look as if it was a discarded cardboard box. But as Elodi tore away the old cover, the board showed to have been posted with various jobs of just their sort. "Sometimes this isn't very up-to-date, but it looks like they've been keeping it fairly relevant recently," Elodi meowed as she searched for a good job to match their moods

Skallaq loped alongside the she-cat, smiling all the while. He let out a soft mweoorrr of laughter at her comment, tail high and swishing as he bounded from rooftop to rooftop. He pricked his ears and threw back his head, gazing just for a moment at the fluffy clouds above. He quickly returned his sights to the path ahead, not wanting to end up slamming into anything. As they slowed down, Skallaq felt a flick of nervese arise. He gazed in slight apprehension at the Glitter Box, somewhat glad they were not heading inside. Yet. He sniffed the air, then trotted over to the board Elodi was inspecting. Ears pricking, he stared up at the list of jobs and other such things. Theivery, theivery, catching a murderer, theivery, short quests.... Skallaq scanned the board with mild interest. He glanced to Elodi, wondering if she had found anything of interest--for he wasn't concentrating well today.

"Mmm, what about this one?" Elodi pointed to a specific paper that looked like all the others. She waited for Skallaq to read it, but figured he may have trouble with some of the Spanish so she spoke it aloud for him, translating to English: "Mr. Hastings has arrived in Spain from the US. On the subject of trading small amounts of valuable contraband that must be kept under the radar, but is also used for medical advances, he must be escorted safely from South-eastern Aragon to a site north of the city of Valencia." Elodi finished translating and reading, then she verfied, "It's an escort job, doesn't seem like it'll be too bad. I think we can handle it," she looked to Skallaq for his reply.

Skallaq inspected the paper as she read it, thankful for her translation. For the most part, he could read it, but some of the words were unfamiliar. He looked up, meeting Elodi's gaze. A hint of a smile curled the ends of his mouth, and he nodded. "I'm up for it." He affirmed with a strong meow. He swished his tail, gazing back at the board. Excitement filled him as he thought of traveling with Elodi, just the two of them as a pair. He traced a paw over some of the words absentmindedly, tail tip twitching in the dirt. With a quick shake he was alert again, and his eyes flew to the calico, shining with glee. He hadn't given a single thought of Temna until now. And with that, he bit his tongue and his ears flattened only slightly. He would have to find a way to get her into someone else's care. Maybe Elodi knew a friend who could help? He didn't bring up the subject yet, though, deciding to wait until they were back in the tower. He was enjoying her good mood too much. As it was contagious, he soon brightened, ears fanning out and paws scuffing the ground.

Elodi smiled at Skallaq's reply, and she curled her tail in delight, "Bueno!" She ripped the paper off quickly, and headed inside the Glitter Box, "let's go get the details of this mission!" However, Elodi stopped in her tracks as she pricked her ears in remembrance, then she deflated a bit--but tried to hide her disappointment. She turned back to Skallaq with a confused expression, "What about that gatita, Temna? Do you think she would want to accompany us?" Elodi took a moment to think about it, and took a step forward and pointed at the tom, "I do not know Skallaq. But I do not want this pequena in danger...I shall have to trust your judgement. I don't mind either way if she travels with us, and you know her better than I," Elodi finished, gazing up at Skallaq with waiting eyes.

[mrrrfff...I didn't really want him to suggest Temna to come, since she's really young and still hurt... :\ I was just wanting him to ask what to do with her while they were gone.
gahhh I'm sooo sorry I sound really mean right now. I'm sorry sorry sorry I'm dumping my issues on you....wallowing in pity...huffbleh. I don't even know why I'm so upset....I just feel like crying for no apparent reason. (Not from this post, my unhappiness started way before I read this.) x_x eagahdsakfjsdzljfkz I wish you were here.
huff I'll just edit this post later I guess....I'm braindead anyway.]
~*~*~
EDIT:
[ :tighthug: you are so amazing. <33333]

Skallaq swished his tail, his eyes darting up to the distant peak of the tower. He was at a loss of what to do with the kitten. He desperatly wanted to be with Elodi, to do a fun job that wouldn't be full of worries about a certain small cat. He was again doubting himself for bringing Temna back. Struggling with his mind, he turned his gaze back to the calico. "I won't bring her into danger." He stated simply, eyes calm and decided. "Do you know anyone who might care for her?" He asked, with slight hesitation. He nearly added, while we are gone, but he was starting to think that Temna might need a better, permanent home. But that rested on Elodi's answer. If there was no cat to take Temna, they might have to bring her. But Skallaq didn't want to think about that. He didn't want to ruin what was hopefully going to be a fun trip.

I swear I'll never judge you or anything, alright? :huggle: and anyways, you don't sound mean!! I was trying to leave it up to you...like I tried to make it so Elodi would ask his opinion and that she didn't hate the kit or anything but she didn't care care either way, and then if you didn't want Temna to come then Skallaq can just say so, it's totally fine! (: <3 ]

[I know ); haha jk <3 anyways, since I can't edit *grumble grumble* I shall just respond in a new post  ]

Elodi raised her eyes and furrowed her brow as she thought, but it didn't take long for a smile of satisfaction crossed her face, "I think I know just the cat," she said, and turned quickly to disappear inside the Glitter Box. She set off at a casual but brisk pace, glancing back to make sure Skallaq followed her. I will admit, I am glad that he seems willing to hand the kit's care to another gato. As much as I love kittens, I have too much in my life right now to deal with a little one as well....hopefully that will change someday.

Skallaq's eyes brightened as she spoke, and his tail gave a slight quiver. He darted quickly after her, a burst of speed that immediately slowed down to match Elodi's pace. He had only just realized where he had entered, and he gazed nervously around the Glitter Box. He stuck near to the calico, wary and uncertain. He focused on walking, not paying any attention to the cats that lounged about so he wouldn't attract any of their curiosity. He was quite glad of Elodi's quick response, he hadn't even hoped she would have one right on her mind.
