    Spoiler: OOC Social conflict 2 


    Niall nodded his head sagely, "I think you'll find that my resources are not insignificant. I do hope you'll keep me in mind if you have any other needs. I think you'll find we could help each other...

    He looked at Morgan and quickly corrected himself, "Of course, after your contract with Mr Lloyd expires, of course."

    Morgan smiled politely back. He was impressed with Adam. The young man was certainly holding his own against this tycoon of a business man. Then again, most people (and monsters too) ignore anything that doesn't fit inside their worldview. Niall's apparently included the idea that everyone has their price. That might be useful later.

    Polly finally saw Morgan glancing up at her a few times. It seemed more of an acknowledgement than a signal, but perhaps he was bad at being casual otherwise? The pixie decided to chance it and head over to the table after another loss on the machine.

    She came around and hovered between Adam and Morgan's shoulder's. "Ah, there you are! I apologize; I was detained by some unpleasant acquaintences. Not everyone is as open-minded as I am," she said with a small sigh.

    Until that moment, Morgan was not certain that the tiny fairy was, in fact, Polly. He certainly was glad to see her, although he didn't know how she managed to pass for a human (even a very short human). Polly clearly had tricks he wasn't aware of.

    "Ah, Miss Aster, this is the gentleman I spoke to you about. Niall, may I present Polly N. Aster. She moonlights as a pharmacist in one of my shops and I think of her as a dear friend."

    Maybe a stretch on the truth, but I'm allowed those. Morgan thought. Advantages of being human.

    "Ah, nice to meet you," Polly flitted over and offered a tiny hand to shake. She silently played along with the 'friend' quip although she really barely knew Morgan. They had a job to do.

    Adam nodded at the pixie, and smiled as she shook the hand of the leprechaun.

    "Ms Aster, you look radiant as usual." Adam didn't reach for the pixies hand, feeling that his role as "bodyguard" would sell better that way. He looked back to the leprechaun

    "I will keep you in mind Mr. t-Saoir, my shop is always looking for new acquisitions and new patrons in need of our services, both mundane and otherwise. Do call or stop in if you need anything, my partner or I are always around."

    He pulled a business card labeled with the address, phone number, and hours of business out of his jacket pocket and set it on the side table next to the Fae. He was quite sincere with his words, as long as they weren't warlocks, or they weren't looking for something to harm mortals, he and his would love new business. Although he felt that after today the leprechaun wouldn't be to keen on visiting the shop, to purchase anything anyway.

    Spoiler: OOC Orrick's Social Conflict 


    Morgan saw Adam reaching into his pocket, but had no way of warning him, so he watched helplessly as Adam flashed everyone the vial of Leprechaun Bane in his pocket. Niall's eyes flashed recognition, Morgan winced. This might not be pretty.

    Niall jumped up from the table, his guards preparing themselves, unsure exactly what happened.

    "You dare to bring that into MY presence?" Niall seethed with quiet, but powerful rage, "He turned to Morgan, "Do you always have your muscle bring weapons specifically engineered against those you claim to ally yourself with?"

    Morgan tried to look unperturbed, "I would have thought that his sword would be tool enough. I suppose he should be applauded, however, for taking such initiative. After all, I merely told him where we were going and whom I wished to meet. I can only assume he did the research himself."

    Morgan resisted the urge to smile. There are so many times being human comes incredibly in handy.

    Niall looked unconvinced and turned toward the Knight, "Is that so?"

    Adam mentally cursed at himself for forgetting what pocket he had kept the vial in. Outside, he he tried to look more apologetic.

    "Forgive me sir, but Morgan is correct. When you fighting with Denarians for as long as I have, you get used to having multiple avenues to tip the balance in favor of your survival. After all, our swords, while powerful in their own right, are not always the proper tool for protection. You have my word as Knight Commander of the Cross that, as long as you do no harm to my employer, I will not use the contents of this vial on you or yours.

    Adam bowed his head slightly at that, trying to convey proper respect while at the same time trying to hide the beads of sweat he could feel forming on his forehead.

    Niall grimaces, "Well how about this. You turn over that vial to one of my men here as a show of good faith, and I'll forget this little incident."

    Morgan smiles and nods his head at Adam, "You best do as he says. There is such a thing as too prepared."

    After Adam hands over the vial, he takes his place quietly behind Adam and seems to play the bodyguard roll quite well. This is going well. Maybe the dragon's plan was a good one.
    Now if we can just get Polly on the inside we'll be golden.


    Almost before the transfer of the vial was complete, Niall turned away from Adam and fixes his attention on the small pixie before him, "I'm sorry about that bit of unpleasantness, Ms. Aster. I do hope you won't count it against me. I don't think I've seen you around here before, and believe me that is an encounter I wouldn't lightly forget."
