Awkward

In which Haft runs into someone he doesn’t expectInfirmary

————————————

Three windows on either side of the door in the southeast wall let in a good

amount of sunlight, especially in the late morning, and their sills are

cluttered with the pots of several frequently used plants. To the left of the

door stands a large cabinet, and bundles of herbs in various stages of drying

hang from the ceiling. There is a long oak worktable to the right of the door,

and a desk in the east corner is piled high with half-completed notes and books

and other useful documents.

You can go: Inner Ward <SE>, Past the Partition <NE>

Contents: A daughter of eve with fair hair (Kairyn); A son of adam who walks

with a limp (Lanisen); OOC Sign; Small Storage Chest; and Storage Trunk.

Haft steps into the Infirmary, looking a little under the weather.  He has a kerchief in his hand and his nose and eyes are red.

Lanisen emerges from the back are of the infirmary, lacing up his collar clumsily. He looks distant and weighed-on.

Haft looks up as Lanisen emerges, clearly expecting one of the healers.  His eyes widen.

Lanisen isn’t paying as much attention to his surroundings as is usual for him. When he sees Haft, he comes to an abrupt halt facing him, as if he’s just realized there is a boar in the room and isn’t sure of its intentions.

Haft swallows.  “I was just looking for Kairyn.”  He turns and heads back toward the door.  “Excuse me.”

Lanisen says, “She’s–” He gestures vaguely toward the back. “I’m, I’m going.”

Haft hesitates, then nods, clearing the path to the door but not looking at Lanisen.

Lanisen gives him an uncertain, guarded look, then heads toward the door.

Haft steps past him, heading into the back room to find Kairyn.
