[P] He needs no army where he's headed
Lillith
#1
His gaze went from the end of the luperci's finger to a patch of reddish fur that was barely visible from his position. "You're sure that's her?" Severus' voice cracked with some anxiety, head turning and silver eyes settling on that patch of fur before moving back to glance at the stall owner that he'd just made a "trade" with. "Because if it isn't, I'll be back in the future for one of your ears or half of your tail" He threatened. He couldn't harm the guy here, but the trader didn't always stay here. Severus turned and pushed off of the stall, making it shake a little bit in his stead. The trader had set his price and the inexperienced Severus had ended up having to pay it. The set of metal stars his master had so treasured were now in the hands of the luperci who stood behind him, in exchange for the name and pack of the red-furred beauty across the outpost from him. If he would have approached her himself he might have learned her name, as he would have recognized her from the past...but the male was afraid to approach a would-be stranger without having information about them beforehand. Now what he had to do was make sure that it was actually Lillith and not someone else.

He hoped he wouldn't feel those throwing stars in his back as he walked slowly but surely along the line of tents and stands toward her. He'd been trading and waiting around the area for a couple of days for one particular trader to appear after trying to get information out of a couple of different stall owners. There was one or two left that he had yet to question that he knew of, and it had been worth camping out to finally get to speak with this one. They were a secretive bunch, it seemed, and suspicious of a loner who'd ask about one specific luperci over and over again. He wouldn't come after the trader as long as his information was correct. Severus grumbled a little bit to himself, rehearsing what he thought he was going to say to her over and over again in his head. He wanted to join her pack. He was a thief..though he probably wouldn't want to admit that here. He could pick many locks and pickpocket, as well as fight using hand to hand combat. Hopefully she would remember him, because the second he'd heard that name he had remembered her. He straightened his button-down shirt and pulled up his jeans a little, a nervous habit. As soon as he got within earshot of her his heart beat wildly, the words seemed to leave him, and his mind went blank. "Hey, Squirt."

Once again the tall female found herself in the Outpost. She found herself coming here becoming more and more enjoyable, and she feared in the future she may came here for no reason at all. Luckily, today was not that day; she was here with a purpose, and that purpose was to find fabrics.

A moon’s turn ago, the beautiful and exotic Yi Taekyung had asked her for specific garments, ones from her home country. It had not been easy to say the least, and Lillith had been having some difficulty in finding fabrics that fit the bill. Unfortunately, it luck wasn’t on her side today, and what little fabrics there were available at the outpost were not suitable. So, Lillith had taken to standing in a small spot between stalls, smoking her long pipe and watching the locals. Sometimes she enjoyed watching others.

She had noticed the gray youth enter the Outpost, recognizing him instantly as a loner, and one she found vaguely familiar. She didn’t pay him much attention, he seemed average at best, but it soon became apparent that he was asking around about things. It wasn’t until she noticed a merchant gesture in her direction that she became uncomfortable, and puffed out a plume of wispy smoke in annoyance. The gray male made a beeline towards her.

Lillith, sure of herself as ever, did not move save to straighten up to her full height. The male seemed somewhat nervous, straightening his clothing, before coming up to her and saying something she had not expected. “Squirt”. It took her a moment for her brain to make the connection, but then a mischievous grin spread over her maw, Severus. She hissed in deep and dulcet tones, Have you been looking for me? She purred. It had been since pup-hood that she had seen him, and it was good to see him again despite them not knowing each other well. But based on his scent and appearance, he was no longer with Anathema, and so she had nothing to worry about. He also was the first male in a long time she has seen that she did not have to look down upon.

It seemed to him that she was rather well-known here...when he'd asked about her in the past, the reaction from the stall owners had been rather priceless. Stammering, anger, etc. Reactions that to him, meant that they knew exactly who she was and where she came from, but that they just didn't want to give that information up to him. He wondered if she came here often enough to have formed a good relationship with these people or if she'd struck fear into their hearts somehow to make them want to defend her. It had been a long time since he'd been in 'Souls, about a year..though his mentor's cabin had not been very far West of the area. He'd had no reason to come back until now, was all, though he could have many times during that period. Apparently a lot had changed since he left.

"Did one of them tell you that? Or have you been watching me as much as I, you?" His words came with a saucy smile and raised eyebrows, as if he were sharing some sort of joke with her. He had a potato sack of goods with him, but this was set on the ground next to him. He kept his hands in plain sight so she could see that he had no weapons on him...well, nothing now that the stars had been taken. Maybe later, once the stalls had closed down, he'd come back for them. Whether that took days or weeks didn't matter to him; he was a patient wolf. "Haven't seen you in a while, Lillith. I came back, but things seem to have changed. No clue where my bitch mother ran off to, and that's for the better. So here I am, left homeless in the land of wolves"

Severus reached down to open up the sack with one hand, keeping the other in view. "I got something for you, though I don't know if it's something you'd like. His master had kept a very extensive collection of various types of alcohol, and he'd taken the dustiest, oldest bottles when he had fled the scene. They lay on their side in bottom of the bag, with wool stuffed around them to keep them cushioned and to keep them from clinking together as he'd traveled. "You got a taste for grapes?" He took all five of the bottles out, a bit relieved to have their extra weight removed from his sack so that he wouldn't have to carry them any more. Wine and sake had been his old master's vices, a fact Severus had noticed the first day he'd met Kurai. This made an impression on him, and as Kurai had been his only companion, he'd come to believe that the bottles were of some value as well. The master had been half-drowned in the stuff, after all. Severus had a few other gifts he could potentially try out on her, if this was unsatisfactory, though..a few small hand weapons and devices that Kurai had taught him could bring answers out of canines quickly.

Severus seemed calm, though she was sure he had an ulterior motive separate from small talking with her. He asked if one of them had told her of him looking for or if she had been watching him and she just grinned her snake grin and said nothing. His mentioning of his mother, and the way in which he brought her up piqued Lillith’s interest; she herself had never been fond of Naniko, as she had gotten older. In her youth she had idolized the woman’s power, but after she ran off, Lillith realized she was nothing more than the obviously; a white, soulless, and pathetic excuse for a wolf.

Suddenly, with the clinking of glass Severus retrieved a bottle of wine from his sack, and offered it to her. The grin let her fact and her eyes began piercing; what was his game? Why was he being so friendly? Lillith suddenly found herself annoyed; he wanted something from her. It seemed others always wanted something from her.

Still, she did enjoy the drink and hadn’t had any in a while; she cooled her expression, Yes, I do. She said, grabbing one of the bottles and looking at it, Exactly why are you offering these to me? She asked through filed teeth.

It wasn't really you, exactly, that I was looking for here today. Just someone who could point me in the right direction and give me a little advice. When I was young, I remember hearing that a portion of the pack had split off from Anathema and that they'd formed their own pack. But in my time in Anathema, I did not have the chance to track it down. I was hoping to find it now and present myself as a potential member." He wasn't one to skirt around the truth or sugar coat anything. Severus knew himself and what he was capable of when he set his mind to it. If she wasn't receptive to this, he'd try his absolute best to find a way to convince her. Pick pockets, use trickery, or pick locks until he had the valuables of everyone he possibly could so he could present them at her feet and allow her to take her pick of the spoils. Present her with whatever she wanted, whatever he could give to her that would make her change her mind about him.

I wanted you to know that these are just the tip of the iceberg, I know of a place with a collection of at least twenty bottles just like them." He'd buried his master far from the camp, and it was very well hidden...they'd never gotten visitors that high in the hills. He was certain the wines would still be there, and it was only about a day's journey away from the outpost. The boy hadn't gone far from 'Sous or stayed away for terribly long. "If I bring those to you, I want to know if you would consider speaking on my behalf." It was a rich deal that might take him days, unless he managed to find a cart back at the camp that he could use to haul them all. But he would do it, if it meant that she'd do this for him. That many bottles would last a long time, and could be used for trade here at the Outpost. All for her just..giving her word for him one time. "I'd even stop calling you 'Squirt'" He offered in an attempt to joke.

Something about how transparent Severus was being was extremely refreshing, and as he began to speak Lillith found herself relaxing again. He wanted entry into Salsola, but instead of some strange and dangerous pact like the one she had made with her mate, he was going about it the way of bribing, a way that she could understand and respect.

Not only was he offered her these bottles but also many others he had stashed at another location; alcohol was something Lillith could see as a good gift to her, and if he was clever enough to get that many of them he would most likely be clever to get other things, things that Salvia might find useful.

But Lillith knew what the price was for being a male in Salsola, and so she pursed her lips slightly and crossed her arms to the playful last remark, Well, Severus, you’re buttering me up pretty well. But it’s tough in my pack for males; if you don’t find a mate within a short amount of time they’ll kick you out. She moved her weight to another foot, Get me the rest of these, and meet me again here in month’s time, and I’ll get you into Salsola, after that, you’re on your own. She warned, reach out to poke him in the chest with a curved claw.

Sorry bout the wait. When we get a chance, I want to talk to you on AIM about something.
