Tayliana walked with Ruili up the steps to the Great Hall and, as humbly as she could, relayed the events that had transpired among the crew and especially with regard to Beau. A few of the crew’s more notable exploits, their time in Sesus and Kledy, how Peino and Jeneyeru had entered into a partnership with Captain Lafitte and his La Danse Calinda.
She did her best to relay Beau’s actions, and as she did so, the slow burn of her attraction to him began to glow ever brighter. The hazy atmosphere inside the great tree trunk only added to the dazed way she felt towards him. As they entered into the Great Hall, she was about to go into specifics of his character when something almost unexpected happened.
“He not only freely gives help to those who need it, but he is free with his information. He has for example helped me in–” but she stopped her words as she saw Captain Lafitte entering in his usual boisterous manner.
“Welcome back to the fold, Prince Starhand. And this must be the illustrious third of the Ereonis Triplets. A pleasure, d’ami” the Captain said, removing his hat and walking over to Ruili.
Quietly behind him stood his first mate, the man in question, Beau Bergeron.
Elated, Tayliana hastily said to Ruili, “Excuse me sir,” and bowed out before embracing Beau. “Are you alright? Are you injured?” she asked her lover, before backing off, a bit blushed.
“I’m fine, ma chère, just here to witness the proceedings,” he said, and in characteristic charming fashion, he planted a light kiss upon her forehead.
Tayliana Winddancer Dahtaligaar blushed even more.
