Morgan and Gareth had been back to the tavern several times. Morgan was keeping an eye on the women that were regulars and to see if any word of the missing children in town had reached them.
Stupid cattle, manners of warthogs, they talk about anything no matter where they are. No wonder they cant figure out where their missing little maggots went...
Gareth followed his mistress on her excursions to various bars, hating the fact that he had no choice in the matter. On this particular evening, for some unknown reason, Morgan is in an exceptionally foul mood. Gareth follows her into the tavern, wishing there was some way to fade into the woodwork to avoid Morgans wrath which was sure to come at some point. Morgan picks out a table to sit at and when Gareth pulls the chair out for Morgan to sit down he accidentally bumps her leg with it.
Morgan, livid, doesnt stop to think about where she is, backhands Gareth across the face, “You stupid clumsy oaf! How dare you touch me ….”
Alise had walked over to the bar, ready to ask for a glass of wine and could hardly believe her eyes. And when the red haired woman raises her hand again, she moves to stand between the two. “I suggest you lower your arm and I would think twice before you tried to hit me.”
Raina was watching with Nick from the other end of the bar. When she sees Alise move, she stands, grabs at her vest, making sure her tanto is there. “By all the Gods, can she not stay out of trouble.. Nick, you had better come too, she has no idea who she is messing with....”
Morgan instantly realizes her mistake and regrets letting her foul mood get the better of her. Damn it, I need to get rid of this idiot. He is going to make me ruin all my plans. And now he will try to play the victim....
She sighs, “Gareth get up and tell these people how clumsy you are. We both know that you stumbled and fell.. and apologize for causing a scene.”
Alise is shocked that anyone would so blatantly lie like that. “He did not fall, you hit him, I saw you.”
Stoney sends his thoughts to her as he is coming down the stairs, Allie, do not argue with her. You dont know what she is....
But she is lying....she hit him for no reason...I saw her.....
Morgan stomps her foot, unable to keep the venom from her voice, “Gareth, I told you to get up and apologize, you fool...”
Alise turns her back to Morgan and extends her hand to help Gareth stand. He hesitates only a second and accepts the help, not used to anyone trying to help him or anyone that will stand up to Morgan.
“Gareth, apologize and explain, now.” Morgan is fast losing patience again and her face is starting to match the brilliant red of her hair.
“I dont know who you are, but you are inexcusably rude.”, and Alise turns to leave.
Morgan is absolutely furious that a human would dare to call her rude. Well, well, now the cattle are trying judge us. But this one is different, I just cant put my finger on it and she is pregnant, I should try to be nice to her, just in case...
“He will apologize to you before we leave.” and in a whisper to Gareth, “and you had better do it, or your friend will suffer for it.”
Alise turns, getting angrier herself, “He has no reason or need to apologize to anyone here and certainly not to me. But you....”
Raina interrupts at this point, “Alise, come on, its not worth arguing with her. I'll explain later...” and she starts to steer Alise away from any further confrontation....
