Jasmine took he plate and walked over to the nearest table. She had her usual breakfast, pancakes with berries, a glass of herbal tea and some rolls. "How much do I owe you this morning?" she asked, as she pulled out her coin bag. "Are there any grand events going on today? or the typical drunks coming back to the inn?" As she finished that sentence, the young boy came back in with a black eye "sir, one of the guest's caused a fight, and ran out in anger" he said, his voice was soft, and breath was heavy.

The man who had struck the boy came stumbling inside after him pushing Sefhi to the ground. Before he could strike him again Kail met him head on barreling into him both landing on the floor roughly. the man struggled but was quickly subdued, Kail may have been the older of the two but he was swifter and was not drunk.


"Get out of my tavern, and if you ever strike the boy again you will answer to me" with that Kail helped the man to his feet and opened the door. The man looked at him started to say something then sneered and walked off muttering curses.

Jasmin quickly stood as she say the man pushed the boy in the ground, but before she could do anything, kail tackled him to the ground. Sefhi just laid there curled up into a little ball on the ground, not moving. Granted it was many years ago, that was the first time that he had been struck since his slavery, and it brought back many bad memories. Though they were very painful, he is trying his hardest to fight them, and push them back, trying to remember that that was a long time ago.

Kail knelt over the lad and wrapped his arms around him in a hug, holding him close.

“Its alright son, that man wont be bothering you again, why don’t you take the day off and spend that hard earned money?”

Shefi slowly wrapped his arms around Kail returning the hug. "No no....I musn't I wish to gather as much money as I can, I wish not to miss another day, I.....I will be alright".

Jasmine Smiled slightly at the boy "dont worry young one, if he comes back, it is my turn to kick him out" she said with an mischevious smile.

Outside, the skys went dark and thunder could be heard. Naturally, this was no big deal, but it was quite akward for this time of year.

A strom seems to be brewing, prehaps its best for you to stay inn" Kail said agreeing with Shefi.

Looking at Jasmine he smiled and helped the boy up.

"I have no doubt you would help but please go back to the couinter and finish your morning meal, then we can talk."

Shefi stood and nodded "But there must be something I can do inside to make money?"

Jasmine nodded "as you wish my lord" she responded with a smile and a little wink. She went over to her table and finished her breakfast.

Kail chuckled and shooed Shefi away knowing full well the boy would find something to do on his own. Sighing Kail returned to the counter and began to wash some more of the dishes.

Shefi waundered off into the inn to catch up on some chores. after about ten minutes, Jasmin finished her breakfast "That was as deliscious as always If I do say so myself" Looking around at the mostly vacant tavern, she looked back at Kail "My my, its quite empty this morning isn't it? Thats not like this place". She thought a few moments then added "any reasons for such slow business?"

Kail smiled and nodded. "No reason just slow I suppose." Kail looked back to his sword that hung over the fire place and walked over to it stopping when he reached it.

She slowly stood with a questioning look on her face "What is it?" she asked in a curious tone

"Jambel...my adopted son and his entire army has vanished north of here in the Tozi Dessert, I intend to go find them." Kail said reaching up and taking the sword down.
