Morgause Rents A Room (open)

The Golden Arrow Inn is the largest of the three pubs in Camelot. It boasts a dozen guest rooms, and sleeping quarters for the tavern girls. The only inn in the upper city, the Arrow is home to the nobler folk of Camelot and holds a heavy price for the 'accommodations' it offers: Whether it is ale, a room or a woman.

Morgause rode up to The Golden Arrow and climbed off of her horse; she tied the horse's reins to a post outside the building and then walked inside.

Once inside, she walked over to the bar and tapped her hand on it, to get the bar keep's attention.

"How much for a room?"

Lily stared at the blonde stranger, feeling the anger bubble inside her as she was ignored yet again. How long had she been waiting now? Lily had lost track but it had been a damned long time of that she was certain, again and again the raven haired woman had been overlooked as the barkeep hurried from one noble to the other, it was infuriating.

"Excuse me!" Lily snapped finally getting the bar keep's attention "But I've been waiting here for at least two hours now and my gold is just as good as anyone elses in here" Turning briefly to the woman she added in a calmer tone, "no offense meant to you my lady as I'm sure you are equally as tired"

Anger had made her bold but now that she seemed to be holding the room's attention the powerful emotion seemed to seep from her slender body, an awkward silence filled the room until at last Lily once again broke it.

"So how much for a room? Or do you not need my custom because I've certainly been waiting long enough for notice from you" Even as the words left her mouth Lily coulnd't believe that she was uttering them, because whilst she might not be a filthy street urchin she was evidently not a noble lady either, however she had started in this tone so she might as well continue afterall backing down now and passively waiting evidently wasn't going to get her anywhere either.

John stared infuriated at the two women but his expression softened on Morgause who was clearly his better but toward the younger lady, who's status was about his own he shot a nasty glare. He had presumed upon her arrival that she had come scrounging around for work but if she had money to spend he wouldn't refuse it... He always wouldn't be in a hurry to take it, not when there were gentry to take care of first. The Golden Arrow was one of the more sophisticated off the inns, the rooms were nicer and the ale a great deal more expensive for the quality. He also offered the obvious bonus, asside he and his son, the workers were all young females with considerable looks; looks that would be rented to the highest bidder were it asked for.

To the girl he uttered a grunted reply: "Your gold is as good as Madam, but your status is not." And he turned to Morgause. "A room, my lady? It depends on the room and the amount of nights you intend to stay." He responded with as much grace and politeness as his gruff voice could manage. As yet more people piled into the bar he shouted over his shoulder.

"Betheine! Catherine? SOMEONE get out here, what am I paying you for?"

From the backroom, Roisin entered, frowning at the owner. "Beth isn't working today. I am." She gritted back, annoyed that her name had so easily been forgotten today. Perhaps she should give into Alec after all, he had enough money to support her so she could get out of this disgusting place.

The Irish maid had little time for imagination now however and quickly grabbed a tankard from the nearest shelf and filled it with the Erin ale that had been delivered two days previously and handed it to Sir Bors with a gracious smile. "Sir." She greeted, taking his money in exchange. It was then that she noticed the girl beside the blonde lady. She had thought at first they were together, it was clear now that she was simply not the Lady's handmaiden.

She neared her. "A room? You'll be better off in The Rising Sun, cheaper... This is mainly for the Nobels, they can afford it." She responded, but unlike John her tone wasn't meant to be nasty, though she hadn't appreciated the way the girl had spoken to her.

Silenced by the bar keeps dressing down Lily bit her tongue in order to prevent any more hostile words escaping, with cheeks flushing pink the young woman would have happily dissolved into the floor, all she could feel was every eye on her waiting for a response but when they saw that she'd been subdued the curious eyes turned back to their own affairs.

Maybe she should leave, but then just as Lily turned to go a feminine voice stayed her.

"A room? You'll be better off in The Rising Sun, cheaper... This is mainly for the Nobels, they can afford it."

"I've just come from there, I put up with it for as long as I could but I don't want to go back there, you're right about the rooms being cheaper but the company ... well you'd certainly believe that chivalry was dead after a night in a place like that lets put it that way" Lily confided, massaging her temple the young woman sighed, "I can't believe I snapped like that, I'm so sorry."

Now that she was calmer Lily took a moment to assess the bar maid who had addressed her, "I'm sorry if I offended you, I don't normally carry on like that, really I don't but I'm just so tired." but looking around her at all the demanding customers the former Cendredite supposed that whining to the bar maid probably wasn't the best idea, "But I suppose you'll know all about being tired trying to placate all customers when its so busy like this" giving her a rueful smile the raven haired woman continued, "anyway how much is a room? I have money and its just a room I need as I already have a job" For some reason the need to clarify that small issue seemed of high importance - but then again that could be due to having already explained to several gentlemen that she wasn't one of the 'working girls' here so they would have to occupy themselves or look elsewhere.

Morgause was getting annoyed. She'd had enough of this. She lowered the hood covering her head, so it covered her eyes just enough.

Her eyes glowed, and then she softly whispered "Tú toil tabhair mé a seomra leapa anois. (You will give me a room now.)"

The spell cast, her eyes stopped glowing and she raised the hood back up, allowing her eyes to be seen.

OOC: PM'd you Rusty.

Roisin certainly couldn't say anything contradicting her. The Rising Sun regulars were as bad, perhaps only moderately better behaved than those at the Talon. She had endured enough hours behind the Talons bar to know that area of town was hardly the best place to be. If the girl had the money, she wouldn't refuse her and so she nodded. "Ah. Yes, I can understand that." Her accent stood out so much more now that Grace had left them. Unless this woman was dressing down for travel, she certainly didn't have enough for a long time stay like the Clare's had managed but John would not refuse having her here, even if she was not who he expected. She would let him deal with the blonde woman.

"You did not offend me." The Irish girl responded, "You need to ask John about the money. I can lead you to a room now." She well understood being tired and annoyed, she had spent most of her time in Albion feeling that way, guarded against the rest of the world, angry and lost in some unfamiliar place. "Where are you from?" She asked as she gestured for the girl to follow her to a door beside the bar.

She led her up the stairs and to a room beside where Alec Clare had stayed. It was only slightly smaller but the large window on the far wall overlooked the market place and the torrents of the castle. It was a spectacular view to Roisin who was now almost completely alone in the dusty attic room, the windows were slanted on the room and you could see only the sky. "There is another room if you'd prefer but it is colder." If this girl had a job, perhaps she would be able to afford one of the better rooms. "I am Roisin by the way, if you need anything I shall get it."

It was a relief to know that she had not offended the young woman. Nodding her head in consent Lily made to follow the bar maid but her eyes widened to the size of dinner plates as she passed the blonde fellow customer. Did she just see what she thought she saw? That blonde's eyes had just glowed, and not in a dewy oh how pretty kind of way but with a sorcerors yellow gleam.

Lily's head kept swivelling round to look at the stranger before she was led out of the room altogether. It was tempting to blurt out her suspicion to the bar maid or to ask the pretty serving woman if she had seen what Lily had seen but then she could be condeming an innocent woman ... and besides Lily still wasn't convinced that all beings of magic desrved to die anyway.

So instead she kept her mouth shut although how wise a decision that was is still open for debate. The two young women seemed to reach the attic suprisingly fast. As Lily took in her new surroundings she found herself smiling, an old cow shed would be preferable to the hovel of a room she'd had to endure at the Rising Sun.

"Oh no this is perfect, thank you" Now maybe the new life she'd been intending to start would finally begin. "I'm Lily Culnor" replied the blue eyed woman extending her hand to Roisin Lily smiled perhaps she'd make a new friend too.
