“No, I think we’re good, Gaius. See you in a bit.”
Strat walked with the others to the inn, curious now about the stranger they were to meet. The mood within was distinctly different than before, with a small cluster of people huddling at the bar, speaking in hushed tones, heads together. The reason why was immediately clear: a woman sat at a table with a full-sized great cat, eating and drinking with casual abandon, as if she were a little girl with stuffed animals at an imaginary teatime. But there was nothing imaginary about the great cat. It had short buff-colored fur and face marked with black around the muzzle and eyes. Its haunches looked particularly powerful. The cat was not as large as the ones they’d fought outside of town, but it was close; and somehow the fact it was sitting at a table made it seem that much larger and more menacing somehow, even though it didn’t even seem to realize they were there.
“Uh,” Strat said, blinking. “Um.”
He wondered if they should step out of the inn and wait for the lady wizard outside. But the captain had said the wizardess would be waiting for them here, didn’t she? Now Strat couldn’t quite recall.
“Uh,” he said, again.
He stood frozen just at the door, staring slackly. Strat didn’t want to take his eyes off the cat, in case it moved when he looked away.
“Uhhhhhh,” he tried again, louder this time, addressing the room as a whole. “Um, we’re looking for, uh, what was her name again, guys?”
