Open to all who can find an excuse/reason to be in Cathwa, or just searching for a drink. Character death disabled, but drunken fighting is allowed, otherwise relax, have a beer, and let the fun begin!
Zifi loved taverns. From her most youthful days with her Papa, sat on a stool while he sang rowdy jokes with his fellow men and toasted to those long past, with her own cup of water, and then as a runaway, searching for food. Many of her best memories were here in particular however, in Setasut, closest to harbor and trade. The day was drawing down, and the night would soon rush in. She could smell it in the air, tanged with salt, spice, and metal with sun-warmed stone and the comforting smells of bread, beer, mead, ale, and all other goods for comfort-seeking souls.

Zifi herself seemed the epitome of comfort this night. She had just scored a fair trade deal with some dyed fabrics in exchange for gold and spices; she felt remarkably rich in body and soul, and though her mead jug was empty, it would soon be refilled. But she ached for a party, for voices in raucous cheer and a body to dance with. In a mug in her hand a sweet mead rose a tantalizing aroma, and she took a hearty sip. The band played an upbeat melody, and she hummed along, drumming fingers on the wooden bar counter.

She was dressed up just for tonight. Long leather sleeveless jacket was left behind in favor of another sleeveless one in cheerful shades of light sky blue, gradienting to the bottom of a dark, almost black cerulean. Her face was uncovered and long dark hair unbound. Beneath the jacket her dress was in deep purple, edged in gold thread with a sash of pale violet, feet shod in thin sandals. She still had her knives on her, but little else, and for once felt... completely at leisure. Who knew who would wander here in search of food or drink or glory, but she was quite content to socialize...

And keen to meet more of Avsolom's finest residents that would come to port.

Eep had been wondering around aimlessly. She has no idea how long she had started her journey. It all started when she became curious of a group of merchants that had been traveling through Mieyko. She changed into her forest dweller form and hitched a ride on their wagon. Or perhaps she tagged along because she was bored out of her mind.

Who knows the reason but now Eep had another problem. She is far away from home and hungry. Not to mention feeling lost. Though the fact that she felt lost didn't bother the strange looking girl one bit. In fact she walked right into the tavern, the last place that an adult would expect to find a child but then girl knows that this is the place to go if you are hungry.

With a little bit of a struggle she got her self up onto the bar so that the bartender and the woman standing next to him saw her, "Hey there! Can I please have a drink and food? I am famished!" She told the pair who looked to each other confused as she placed some money on the counter, "Thank you!!" She will then say happily before letting go of the bar counter, dropping her back out of view of the pair. The girl could only hope they will allow her to eat and drink without giving her any trouble. And not just because of her age but because of her appearance. Anyone would could get freaked out by her appearance and try to get her out of the tavern. The girl just hoped that happens after she has had her fill.

Looking around she decided to join the nice lady sitting alone at a table. She looked like a lot of fun to be around. Maybe she will make a friend! Eep walked over to Zifi, "Hey there! My name is Eep. Can I join you?" she asked putting her hands behind her back as she waited for the woman to reply. He or goldish eyes did wonder a bit, catching some of the occupants of the place looking right at her. She looked back to Zifi, "I promise I won't be a bother." she said after looking around.

At first, she hadn't seen the origin of the small voice. Bright blue eyes glanced about, confused, then... down.

And saw the biggest golden eyes she ever did see. She stared for a beat, and was lost for words... then she offered a wide grin, nudging a stool with one sandaled foot. "Sure kid! Help yourself, I don't have any reservations!" The more she stared, the odder the girl appeared.. but to be frank, she wasn't the oddest creature or girl she'd met. But... a swift, assessing glance saw she had tails.

Huh.

For a brief, fleeting moment, Zifi wondered what it would be like to live with a tail... and decided it would be fun to find out. She resumed tapping fingers to the beat of the music, then glanced to the girl again when she mentioned not being a bother... then hummed, rubbing her chin. "Nah, you're fine... Eep, is it?" Her eyes sparkled; what a name. No doubt worth a teasing... but it was probably a sore subject, for now she would let it drop.

"Pleasure; I'm Zifichi, kid, but please, feel free to call me Zifi."
She took another hearty swig of her drink, sighing contentedly. It wasn't often she came around here, only once or twice a year, but being here was a nostalgic thing.

Ah, but now a kid was here, and suddenly she was wishing she wasn't the only adult here. Kids weren't her strongest suit; she felt like she ought to have another adult watch the adult and the kid. That thought brought a grin to her lips, and she barely managed to smother a chuckle with another swallow of mead. She wondered what other strange, wonderful beings would come through these doors.

Alistair was sat in the corner of the room, reading a book in the lamplight of the room, his hand resting on his face with two fingers. he was wearing simple clothing, a simple linen shirt with a tattered suede coat with a sheepskin interior, while that kind of coat wasn't the best in the desert sun but it kept the cold desert nights at bay and that's all he needed it for.

looking up from his book, he saw this woman's predicament from the look, she clearly doesn't deal with children on the regular, though he wouldn't step in just yet he wanted to see if she could handle it on her own.

Eep grinned as the woman allowed the girl to join her at the table, "Thank you!" The girl climbed onto the chair. Looking around at the somewhat busy tavern before looking back to Zifi when her curiosity of the place was satisfied. She nodded, "Yep. My name is Eep. Well it is really Aragni. But people back at my village would say Eep whenever they saw me so.. I thought that was what they were calling me so you can say it stuck." The girl explained just as the tavern lady placed a plate of food and a cup in front of the girl then quickly moved off to tend to other customers before Eep could even thank the tavern lady.

She grinned at Zifi, "It is nice to meet you Zifi." After that the girl wasted no time with beginning to eat. It was not the best food that she has tasted but she is far too hungry to exactly complain. Food is food after all.

She had no idea how the lady was feeling about having a kid at the table with her. But as Eep promised the girl made sure that she was on her best behavior as she sat at the table with the woman. Quietly eating her food as her eyes wondered around the building wondering what Zifi was chuckling about. Did something funny happen? Eep couldn't see what the lady chuckled about. Though as the girl's eyes wondered she did catch a bloke drunkenly fall out of his chair. That couldn't have been it even though it was funny.

"Aragni…" she said the name in a lilting tone, head tilted slightly as though to taste the words out, smiling. "Good name, kiddo. Though it's a pleasure to meet you too." She could feel eyes... just where, yet, she wasn't sure, but for now she'd mind her drink, the kid was cute and reminded her of some her caravan's own little ones... she didn't mind kids, but usually the crying ones disturbed her greatly. The best method of a crying kid was being sent back to their mam, or so she thought.

If this kid got emotional, she wouldn't know what to do.

"Have you ever danced?" she asked her newfound companion, head tilted slightly in curiosity. Perhaps not.. but it was an ice-breaker. She felt the urge to dance with bodies around her.. and the music was a tantalizing backdrop. Perhaps... another thought filtered through her brain, and she took another gulp of her drink, setting it aside.

A chord caught her attention, freezing her in place. -Theme!-

She slowly turned to face the lutist playing... and grinned, eyes closing. Almost without thought, she rose from her seat, feeling the rhythm through the soles of her feet. Her eyes glanced about the room... and settled on someone seated in the corner.

She outstretched her hand with her widest smile, giving him a playful wink. "Hey there, stranger. Care for a brief dance?" If he said no... well, she could teach Eep! The kid looked like she was light on her feet too, or perhaps she could even join!

What a sight they would make then!!

She nodded as Zifi said what her real name is as the girl was a bit busy eagerly eating the somewhat bland food. While the girl had explained the origins of what you could say is her nickname the child had no idea if it was simply how people reacted to her and she interpreted as a name other people were giving her. Whatever the background the name stuck. If it was a reaction to her appearance. Well it is safe to say that she doesn't care what people think of her appearance. How she looks is what the girl has come to terms with years ago and is actually quite happy with it.

So why bother with what other people think?

Aragni finished eating her food fairly quickly, looking around as she finished off her drink. Looking up to the woman she tilted her head. Dancing? What is dancing? The girl had never heard about dancing or seen people dance. She shook her head in response, "I have never danced. Can you show me how? she beamed. Excitedly getting to her feet as the tune of the music being played changed.

His eyes had turned back to his book, as he was splitting his attention between it and the events folding out at the table ahead of him. His eyes looked upon hearing the voice.
"um, uh" He flustered, blinking a few times, he hadn't seen her face her black hair obscure it from his angle, she was stunning making Alistair's mind go blank.

"yes... yes, I, I would love too" he finished with a nervous chuckle, putting way his book into a haversack and standing up "I never danced to music like this, it looks like you'll be teaching the both of us." he said looking down at the small girl, giving her a warm smile.

Her eyes sparkled with delight; he seemed a nervous type, perhaps not many talked to him? But when both Eep and the stranger confirmed not quite knowing the music, she pretended a look of shock, pressing a hand to her heart. "Oh my, out here in Cathwa and not knowing this dance? Tch." But the smile took out any bite that might have been in her words, and winking to some of the others that began to bob to the music.

"It's easy; move with me." She took one of their hands with her own, grinning widely as she stepped forward and back, shoulders and hips shaking with the movement. "And let the music guide you; there's no wrong moves here!" Two more women rose up, dragging along a few others with them, until there was a small crowd pressing around them, and eventually she would pair off with Eep or with the stranger, bright blue eyes sparkling in delight.

Now, it was a party!

A wicked thought came to her; she felt the urge to begin dancing on one of the tables; she grinned down at Eep, and winked. "Hey kiddo, want to be higher up?" Still holding the hand of the stranger, she gave him an encouraging, almost flirtatious wink.

And to think, she wasn't even drunk and having this much fun. Who would have thought?

Eep felt a little uneasy. Not about the dancing as she simply copied what Zifi did in an attempt to learn how to dance. It unease about the other people as they too were drawn to dance by the music the musicians played. Who could blame them? But it made Eep uneasy because well she is just a little thing with tails that a person can easily trod on if they aren't careful. The little girl tucked and wrapped the tails close to her body to prevent someone from stepping on them.

It was easy to follow Zifi's movements with her own. The girl looked up to the woman as she asked if she would like to get up higher, "Yes. I would like to get up higher." The girl didn't have to think twice as to what Zifi meant. There was only one object on the room that would provide the means to get higher. The tables!

Releasing the woman's hand she walked over to the nearest table. Using one of the chairs to get on top of the table. Well it will be big enough for three people once these metal plates and mugs are dealt with. Which was simply pushing them off onto the other chairs that surrounded the table. No it is ready and had plenty of room.

Alistair followed her moves, picking them up quickly, it brought back him to his teenage years he was taught the dances of the court they were awfully dull compared to this current dance, though he might be biased for several reasons.

He overheard the stranger ask the child about being higher up, though Alistair had a different idea to one she enacted. He thought she would put the child on her shoulders but he guessed a table was just as valid of an idea though he didn't think the owner would appreciate it but hell to him. he followed the stranger up on to the table

"it occurs to me we don' know each other's names, I'm Flynn." he asked the woman the child thou his focus was more the woman.

She in fact was prepared to bring Eep up to her shoulders, but seeing her climb up one of the tables, then her other newfound companion, made her stare for a beat... then laugh aloud, nimbly leaping up herself. One was cleared, but she could have stepped just as easily. Various voices laughed, or roared, at seeing those three crazy people beginning to jump up and dance; the music was bright and energetic, and she had fine company.

What more could a desert rat ask for?

"Flynn, hmm?" she asked, lips pursed in a flirty grin. "Pleasure to meet; Zifi Halas," she responded easily, tossing her head back to feel the music in her bones, her steps light, easy as she opened her palms to both of them again, but her eyes focused on the man, Flynn.

He didn't seem to be a desert rat either... and now she was definitely curious.

A dangerous thing indeed.

Eep giggled as the two adults followed her onto the table. She had completely misinterpreted what Zifi meant but this is way more fun than being perched on someone's shoulders. The girl watched the two adult interact as they danced. The owners of the tavern are probably not pleased with them being up on the table but other groups of people began to follow suit. So the owners had no way really to gain control of the room until the song ends.

Giggling quietly Eep pushed Zifi towards Flynn, perhaps into him if Zifi failed to gain control of her feet after Eep's gentle push. The girl will then move away from the two adults by moving to the other end of the table.

With the action done. All she can do is wait and see what the end result of her pushing them together will do. Maybe the act was a little bit too childish. But it is already done so there is no going back.

"The pleasure is all mine," Alistair spoke, flashing a shy smile at Zifi. as they danced, he replayed her name his mind, Zifi, Zifi, Zifi, not wanting to forget her name.

He was infatuated or dare he say smitten with her, she was a mystery that held some many questions, why choose him? Did she feel the same way as he? These were the questions that filled his head.

As they danced, Zifi stumbled forward, he didn't see what caused it, perhaps they missed someone thing on the table, whatever was it didn't matter. Out of instinct, Alistair caught Zifi in his embrace, his arm wrapped her. He was frozen, not knowing what to do he was panicking. Do I let go and apologise? do i make a joke, bringer her closer?

She tripped.

Now, Zi was many things, but clumsy was not one of them. But when she was caught, she laughed, bracing herself against Flynn to lightly scold Eep, but the joy in her voice took any heat from her tone. "Watch it, kiddo," she grinned, and then glanced to Flynn, brows raised slightly as the grin lingered on her lips. Rather than seem annoyed, she was amused.

Her voice was low, teasing, as her smile turned into a playful smirk back to her companion, brows waggling. "Are you gonna hold me like this forever?" she chuckled, finding her footing again. No easy feat considering the footage was rather limited. Her arm wrapped around his own, strong and sure as she continued to move, eyes bright. "Or shall I lead?"

He was certainly staring though. Was there something in her teeth?
