    Lodging Needed!

    DATE: JUNE 11TH, 0008
    TIME: APPROX. 7:30 AM


    Anjeet awoke bright and early from her slumber this morning. The tiny alien figured that today would probably be a good day to check out the Inn that everyone kept pointing her in the direction of. It really would be nice to have a place other than the Sanctuary to rest her head at night. As she entered the building, the Jawa's nose immediately picked up on the smell of food. If the current time was anything to go by, she could only assume that it was breakfast. Her stomach growled at the smell, but breakfast was going to have to wait for now. She had other more important business to attend to right now!

    The fuzz alien approached the reception desk. Immediately she noticed a bell sitting on the counter. Try as she might, though, Anjeet just couldn't reach it. She had an idea, though. Clearing her mind, the Jawa focused on the bell, and only the bell. Concentrate, concentrate... Ding ding! Yes, success! Anjeet clapped happily at her accomplishment. Who needs to actually reach things when you have the Force at your disposal?

    Anjeet sniffed her armpits. It would seem that the bath that Scaramouch and Lunette had given her two days prior was still doing its job. Thank goodness! Making a bad first impression on the people who would be giving a roof over your head would really stink, wouldn't it?

    The was a 'ding ding' from the reception bell summoned forth a boy from the office room behind the reception. He poked his head out, and it seems the Jawa had caught the boy in the middle of his breakfast as a slice of toast was still in hand. He blinked in confusion, because at first glance he couldn't spot anybody in the reception area. Huh? Odd, he was sure he heard the bell. Was it the postman? Maybe he tapped the bell and went back out to retrieve the mail whilst Link worked on emerging from the office, the postman does that sometimes especially when there's a lot of packages.

    A red fairy squeezed out the gap between the door and above Link's head. "Is it the mailman? Great! I was looking forward to this week's magazine subscription!" Leaf chimed excitedly, whizzing around like an annoying fly in the air. It was from his higher vantage point that he spotted the little person on the other side of the desk. "Hey, you're not the mailman? Are you new? Where's the mail? Is there anything for me? I'm called Leaf. There should be a magazine for me."

    Link shoved the rest of his toast in his mouth, dusted the crumbs from her hands and stepped out, curious about this new 'mailman'.

    "Mailman? No, Anjeet not mailman," she replied, shaking her head. "Anjeet want place here. Lulu say you help."

    Already the alien could tell that she was not getting her point across at all. She sighed, annoyed at herself more than anything. This was a bad idea. She really should have waited until Kev or Scaramouch could come along and translate for her. But the Jawa was already here! She really didn't want to leave them hanging like this, nor did she want to make a second trip. Surely there must be some way to communicate with this glowy... thing?

    It looked like Anjeet was going to have no choice but to resort to charades. This was going to be fun. By now, the tiny alien had come to the conclusion that she was no good at charades. Like, at all. What to do, what to do? Aha! Were those keys behind the counter? They must be! Hoping for the best, Anjeet pointed at them. Please let this work!

    There were indeed a set of keys on the counter, but rather than room keys (which are in the form of card keys), these were metal keys for some unknown door in the inn [strike]which the rp-er can’t figure out where and what yet[strike]

    The new ‘mailman’ pointed at the keys and both Link and fairy looked at the keys in confusion, looked at the ‘mailman’, at the keys, at the ‘mailman’

    “Did you….” Leaf ventured as he and Link both turn to look out the window to the street beyond. “Maybe lose the keys to your van?”

    Where WAS said van any way? In fact, can a being of this size actually drive a standard postal vehicle here?

    “Do you need help getting the packages out of your van? Link can help! He can lift heavy things like nobody’s business!” the fairy continued and his boy companion nodded before pushing up his sleeve to show that he is eager to help. Leaf babbled on,
    “Where’s you van? Our maybe you came by bike? Or whatever vehicle the mail people use nowadays? Do any of you fly?”

    Anjeet shook her head at every one of the fairy's questions. Coming in without an interpreter probably was a bad idea. Things certainly weren't looking good for the little alien so far.

    "No, no. Room! Anjeet new here, would like room!" This really wasn't working out. "Hmm..."

    The Jawa looked around and spied something that may be of use to her. This was her last resort. The alien grabbed a nearby sheet of paper and began writing. She had only a bare minimum grasp on the Breach Basic alphabet. Hopefully this would work! She held up the paper, which read:

    Name Anjeet. New here. Would like room here! Please? Thank you!

    The strange being suddenly grabbed a pen and paper to start writing with. Link and his fairy leaned a little closer out of curiosity, with the former bubbling with a bit of excitement because he’s always happy to see a fellow non-speaker.

    OOOooooooooHHHHH! The person is new! The fairy visibly drooped a little at learning Anjeet was not the mailman. He was sooooo looking forward to this week’s magazine subscription. Meanwhile, Link smiled warmly, nodded and grabbed another pen before writing on the same piece of paper Anjeet used.

    “Welcome,” he wrote. “My name is Link. I’m the innkeeper here. I’ll get you a room right away. We have 4 floors, would you like somewhere on the bottom floor, the middle or the top floor?”

    He swivelled the page round for Anjeet to read, hoping that they could make out his chicken scratch of a handwriting.

    Anjeet let out a sigh of relief the other person behind the counter took the sheet of paper that she had just written on and wrote up a response. Having to put her words onto paper was a bit tedious for her liking, but it worked! The Jawa had managed to get her point across! It's not like anything else was going to work anyways. According to this person, there were four floors to choose from. Decisions, decisions!

    "Hm..."

    The alien thought for a moment before motioning that she wanted the paper back. On the paper, she quickly scribbled up a reply to his question.

    Nice to meet Link! Floor not matter. Anjeet just want room. Any room fine by Anjeet!

    Well, if any room was fine with their mysterious new tenant, then Link was going to just assign a random room. Let’s see, third floor had the most unoccupied rooms right now, if he remembered correctly; and he does like to balance out the floors and rooms distribution. The boy whipped out a cardkey for a random room on the third floor. Aha! Anjeet would be in room 316!

    He also took out a form which listed the few guidelines the inn had, and turned it over for their newest addition to sign on the dotted line.

    Date: JUNE 11TH, 0008
    Room: 316                      
    Name: _______________
    Signed: ______________

    Anjeet chittered excitedly as Link grabbed her key. This was it! She was about to have her very own place to stay! The tiny alien was practically bouncing in place as she was given a form to sign. By the look of things, it seemed that she was going to be getting Room 316! The Jawa could only guess that the 3 in that number meant that it was on the third floor. That was just fine by her!

    Eagerly, Anjeet signed the form before passing it back to Link:

    Date: JUNE 11TH, 0008
    Room: 316                      
    Name: Anjeet
    Signed: Anjeet

    Anjeet very thankful for room, she wrote on the paper. Promise to not cause trouble. Take very good care of room! Promise!

    Link smiled broadly at the Jawa’s promises to be a good tenant. Wow, the alien was a bit odd but rather cute! He almost wanted to reach over and pet her….his? Their head like someone would to a well behaved child.

    “No problem,” Leaf chimed. “Yeah, being good is good. Though we’re pretty relaxed so you don’t have to worry too much. In fact, it could probably do with being a bit more rowdier.” At which Link sent his fairy a sharp look. Surely Leaf was not suggesting for trouble. Business aside, Link would very much like his home stress and trouble free.

    “A bar fight or two would be nice!”

    No, it will not be nice! Link thought and promptly swat the fairy lightly with a document file.

    “Okay, okay! No bar fight then! Boring!”

    “He watch too much TV - sorry,” Link wrote with an apologetic smile. “We hope you enjoy your stay here. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if there is anything we can help with.”
