An unexpected arrival
Sun Apr 19, 2015 18:02

A woman with close cropped brown hair walks into the courtyard. A look of confusion clearly on her face. She still had not quite figured out how she had gotten here, or where here even was. The first sight that became clear to her was two people speaking; the first people she had seen since arriving in this unusual place. This was the first time she had actually seen anyone since being here.

She approached the two cautiously, uncertain who was friend or foe, but she needed answers and one way or the other she was going to get them.

"Excuse me," she said, grateful for meticulous preparation. "Can you tell me where exactly I am?". Her standard kit contained a small sonic imprint sensor, useful for on the fly translations. She never left for an operation without it.

                              The Notary turned away from the irritatingly chirpy midget and began to glide off. Before she did, though, she spoke. "Whether I would do it is completely irrelevant anyway. My partner would not."

                                  The Notary's voice was about as sincere as a vow of fidelity from Casanova. "If you want to find Luxury, just listen for the creak of bedsprings. I suggest you seek her out. Via leaving. Presently."
