Celestial heights XVI

Celestial heights, Currently ruled by Jeska and Lily.

The heights is also the birthplace of Kelri and Jeska.

Leukor is still busily tending the storefront.
Obscurejones

Jared works into the evening.
Metakirb

Then Leukor closes shop and heads for a shower.
Obscurejones

Very clean people, these angels.  Jared works through the night and goes to place the posters and fliers before dawn.
Metakirb

Leukor sleeps for longer than usual.
Obscurejones

By the time she's up Jared'll be opening up the shop.
Metakirb

She gets changed and heads into the storefront.

[color=gold]Morning.[/gold]
Obscurejones

Morning.
Metakirb

What time is it? I think I overslept.
Obscurejones

He thinks for a moment.
... 10:00.  I believe.
Metakirb

Yeah, I overslept. Need me for anything?
Obscurejones

He raps his knuckles on the counter.
Nothing springs to mind.
Metakirb

She nods and heads out to exercise.
Who

A short time after she leaves they actually have a customer! Looks like every other angel knocking about the place bar floor length rainbow coloured hair.

"I'd like to speak with the manager please."
Obscurejones

Jared raises a hand, surprised to actually see another living thing in the shop.
Who

She grins and rushes over, offering an over enthusiastic hand shake.

"Great. I'm looking for a few books. Can you help me?"
Obscurejones

He nods and comes out from behind the counter.
What specifically are you looking for?
Who

"I just need two books. One on exorcism and one on voodoo if you've got them."
Obscurejones

Tragically those are both checked out at the moment.
Who

She smiles, like you would at a puppy who's not quite up to scratch with the rest of the litter.

"I know, I was trying to be subtle."
Obscurejones

... Ah. Well you're obviously not Pierrot.  So who are you?
Who

"Hey, don't make assumptions, I could be. I'm not but I could be. I'm Eris and you have been a very naughty boy haven't you? Honestly, playing with dolls at your age."
Obscurejones

Dolls, as you seem to know, are useful.  Especially if you've got knowledge but no power.  It's complex magic, but all ritual.
Who

"And what are you planning to do with little Leuky then? Hmm?"

She takes a seat on the counter, swinging her legs off the side.
Obscurejones

Nothing.  She's just... Less stable then I'd like.  It's a precaution.
Who

Eris grins from ear to ear.

"I might tell."
Obscurejones

I don't think you will.  But feel free to stick around and drop in from time to time.
Who

She scowls petulantly, people don't talk to her like that.

"Do you even know who you're talking to?"
Obscurejones

Eris, Elder god.  Fought the Guardians.  Recently part of a struggle involving succession where several gods tried to turn against their respective pantheons.
A slightly blue serpentine gleam plays out behind Jared's eyes.
I also know the rituals involved in calling things to the attention of the Guardians.  Test me.  See what happens.
Who

Her mouth drops, agape in shock.

"How the hell do you know that?!"
Obscurejones

Jared smirks and gives her a little shove off the counter.
I was always a heavy reader.  And I cheat from time to time.  Rarely.  But from time to time.
Who

She holds her ground on the counter.

"There's no way you're just one of these myopic angels. No way."
Obscurejones

Jared let's out a small happy laugh.
Of course I am.  After all, what else could I be?
He walks around the counter and goes bnack to organizing books.
Who

"Oh this isn't over, not by a looooong shot."
Obscurejones

Miss, if you're not here to pick up a book I'd appreciate it if you left before the store's guard got back.
Who

She hops off the counter and stomps to the exit.

"You haven't heard the last of me!"
Metakirb

She'll walk past Leukor as she leaves.
Obscurejones

Probably haven't.
He looks up from his work.
Afternoon Luekor.
Metakirb

Afternoon...

She watches the woman go, almost looking scared.
Who

Eris purposely bumps passed Leukor on the way out.
Obscurejones

Jared calls to Eris out the door.
Eris, play nice or I'll call and let them know where you're hiding.
Metakirb

Eris? Can't be the same...
Obscurejones

It's not.  Relax.
Metakirb

She nods slightly, wondering how he knows what she means.
Obscurejones

Now, about your job at the store.  I was thinking you could be our security guard.
Metakirb

She nods.

Sounds reasonable
Obscurejones

Good.  Have a weapon?
Metakirb

She nods.
Obscurejones

And what would that weapon be?
Metakirb

My sword.
Obscurejones

Fetch it out.  Need to take a look at it.
Metakirb

She heads into her room and brings it out.
Obscurejones

He holds his hand out for the sword.
Metakirb

She gives it to him.
Obscurejones

He looks over the sword, pulling his jeweler's loupe from one of his pockets.  Checking for magic and make.
Metakirb

It's made by her, nothing magic or anything special.
Obscurejones

He nods his head and hands it back.
It'll do.  Might want to upgrade if we ever start making any money.
Metakirb

She nod slightly.
Obscurejones

A few angels drift in and Jared goes to show them to the correct books.
Metakirb

Leukor watches.
Obscurejones

He points out a few books on wildlife and goes to the counter to ring them up.
Metakirb

Still watching.
Obscurejones

That done he shows them to the door and bids them good day.
Metakirb

She smiles a little.
Obscurejones

He goes to the back to restock the books.
Metakirb

Leukorpicks up her book again and starts reading.
Obscurejones

He waits and helps customers as they appear, actually doing a brisk trade.
Metakirb

Those fliers worked fast.
Obscurejones

He smiles and the serpentine gleam crosses his eyes.
I'm good at advertising.
Metakirb

She nods.
Obscurejones

He laughs and goes to the back to check their stock of spare books.
Metakirb

I'm sure they have plenty.
Obscurejones

He restocks the shelves.
Metakirb

Leukor helps.
Obscurejones

Once that's sorted a few new customers walk in.  Jared goes to help them.
Metakirb

Leukor watches as usual.
Obscurejones

Jared finishes all the sales for the day and closes the shop.  Takes the locked box and his bow from beneath the counter and goes to put them away for the day.
Obscurejones

Jared finishes all the sales for the day and closes the shop.  Takes the locked box and his bow from beneath the counter and goes to put them away for the day.
Metakirb

Leukor heads for a shower.
Obscurejones

Jared puts away the box and bow.  Double checks the locks on the windows and doors.  Sketches a rune of binding over the threshold.  And goes to take a shower.
Metakirb

While Leukor's having one?
Obscurejones

Likely while she's still in there.  He had forgotten about her.
Metakirb

Then he'll probably be on the receiving end of a punch in the face.
Obscurejones

.... With how much force?
Metakirb

Not enough to do any serious damage, but enough to get the point across.
Obscurejones

He falls back, hand going to the resulting broken nose.
Sorry about that.  Forgot you were there.
Metakirb

She covers herself as best she can.

Out.
Obscurejones

He nods and scrambles to his feet and back to his bedroom.
Metakirb

She grumbles something before finishing her shower, getting dressed and walking to her room, ignoring him if he tries to talk to her.
Obscurejones

He waits until he's certain she's gone and then goes to take his shower and clean the blood off his face.
Metakirb

She'll be in her room the rest of the night.
Obscurejones

He cleans himself off and goes to adjust the binding rune on the door.
Metakirb

Leukor's not stopping him.
Obscurejones

He makes his adjustments and then heads to bed and sleep.
Metakirb

Leukor gets up early, as usual, goes to leave the place to exercise.
Obscurejones

Jared wakes up late and heads out, looking for a shop in which to buy food.
Metakirb

There's one somewhere locally, he'll notice alot of broken trees along the way.
Obscurejones

He smiles and heads into the shop.  Looks for a butcher counter.
Metakirb

There's one there, nothing particularly special.
Obscurejones

I was wondering if you might know where I could get a live chicken or goat.
