Chase would not forsake his post, especially after giving his word to hold it, and so he settled in, as comfortably as possible, to wait out the night before the doors of The Shepard's daughter. Pulling a piece of wood from a pouch at his waist, he continued an age old habbit of carving and shaping he had developed. It seemed that making flesh from wood calmed him, or perhaps it was the fact that he felt more confident holding a weapon. Shrugging off his line of thought, he simply wittled away at the wood, carefully watching the goings on in and around the Inn.
Rain had been chatting with Janus when Kichea walked throuh the door. Understanding that her actions had been preventative of helping keep the ones Rainé cherished safely out of harms way, she threw a welcoming smile in Kichea's direction. Moving gracefully out of her seat, she went over to the stew and poured out a generous bowl, following with a large chunk of bread. Setting the bowl on the small table where the family usually sat, she offered her seat to the young woman before leaning against the wall near the kitchen's back door.
"Thank you, for what you did today," she said quietly. Her voice was smooth, and high pitched, but lacking the usuall uneducated drawl of a farmer's daughter. "My husband can be a rash man at times, and when he gets in those moods, it's hard to slow him down. Even I do not have full control over the things he does. But truthfully, I would not have stopped him from going out those doors, as my feelings for this place and it's people are as heartfelt as Chase's. You were a voice of reason, and for that I am more than thankful. I am in your debt."
Nodding her head once, Rainé smiled again, an innocent grin which portrayed a hint of beauty. Janus walked over and placed an arm around her shoulders and they both shared a simple look of relief and joy that came with those who were family, even if they were not blood. As Janus lifted his arm, Rain turned to the door, to continue to stand her watch. Janus headed back into the commons, as there were now guests within, and he still had a job to do.
