*Kalvos and Sylvie follow the red haired lady to the cosy looking inn called the Three Bells. It is a respectable establishment inside and out, except for a secret underground tunnel that joins it to a house of ill-repute two doors down.

The weary travellers are unaware of the connection between the Three Bells and the brothel. For now they are grateful for the food and hospitality provided by the beautiful Mistress Jana.*

It is very nice here...

* Sylvie yawns*

I can barely keep my eyes open, I haven't slept in a bed for weeks.

You poor thing... a quick scrub in the tub and off to bed with you.

*She motions to a stone-faced maid*

Take care of the little Miss. Draw her a bath and once she has bathed put her in room 3... and give her a fresh nightgown to wear.

*Jana looks at Kalvos with a seductive smile that reminds him of Philomena*

A bath, shave and bed for you too I suppose. Unless you wish to join me for a night cap after your bath?

*Her smile freezes as Kalvos bows and leaves the room. She starts counting a small bag of gold.*

*The maid re-enters and steps forward to pour wine for Jana*

The little girl is sleeping... Poor child.

*She looks sad*

She is too young...

Too young to be out in a war-torn land... yes I agree.

*Jana looks coldly at Zinnia*

But we will take good care of her here. Give her all she needs to survive this war and whatever follows it.

Is ZinZin moaning about the age of recruits again? She's only jealous of their youth...

If she moans too much, it will sour the milk... and I'll send her to work at the soldier's camp for a week...

*She looks at the two girls*

We've got a new guest. I can't make him out, he's dressed in old armour but has a jewelled sword. He's with a peasant girl but speaks like a nobleman... Underneath that busy beard I think there is a handsome man... and a broken heart.

*Jana gives a smug smile*

Fortunately, we have the cure for a broken heart here.

*She listens to the creaky stairs*

Now... you both find some work to do. I will speak to our nice new guest.

*Kalvos returns sometime later. He has shaved but his armour is still dirty and disheveled. He walks down the staircase and takes a seat. He closes his eyes and sighs. He looks up at Jana*.

Is Sylvie sleeping?

*He smiles*.

It's kind of you to accommodate us.

*He rubs his smooth chin*.

I almost feel like me again, even though there is something missing. Someone....

*Kalvos shakes his head*.

No matter. Do you know Sylvie's grandfather? We've travelled a fair way together and I am responsible for her. I need to know she is safe before I continue my journey.

*Jana reaches out and strokes his shaven cheek tenderly. Kalvos is surprised by the softness of her touch. *

I knew that there was a handsome face beneath that fur... I can arrange some clean clothes for you if you wish! You must be hungry and thirsty.

*She puts a bowl of stew and a goblet of wine in front of him*

The poor little mite is sound asleep. I will send her breakfast in bed tomorrow. She needs to recover from whatever ordeal she has been through.

*Jana watches Kalvos eat with the benevolent smile*

Who is the child's grandfather? Many from Dorlich fled, many were killed and a few remain. The orphanages are full... so it is up to compassionate people like us to keep the children safe if they have no family. If Sylvie has no family left, then I will take her in and treat her as my daughter until you return from your journey.

*She puts her hand gently on his. *

Who is she? The person who is missing? One thing a person in my profession can see, an innkeeper I mean, is a broken heart. She left you for another? Someone richer I imagine as you are young and handsome. You can unburden your heart here.

*She pours him more wine*

*Kalvos looks at the wine and sighs*.

I don't wish to appear rude, but have you any water please?

*He smiles and begins to eat the stew*.

Very good.

*Kalvos nods*.

Thank you.

*He speaks between each mouthful*.

Sylvie's grandfather lives in Dorlich, he's a barber. I hope he is unharmed. I'm not sure she told me his name....

*He nods*.

I was guessing her parents were living here too. Maybe I'm wrong?

*Kalvos sighs and puts down the spoon*.

Philomena.... The Princess.... She is the one I am looking for... She's at Stormrock with a man named Darl Thranmere....

*He looks sad*.

I have to go there. I will go there.

*He smiles*.

I admire what you are doing here. It's good to know that there are still people that care in Grminey.
