"When in Fiore..." Kyuyo muttered to herself as she walked toward the door of the establishment, pulling up the hood to her cloak as she did. Upon entering she looked around, a pretty busy place, frowning she moved to a corner far from the largest group of people. she set her sword up against the table and sat down, watching the goings on around her. After a while a server came up and greeted her, Kyuyo smiled meekly at the girls outgoing personality but remained silent. looking over the menu Kyuyo pointed to what the she wanted and held up fingers to show how much she wanted. The girl was a bit flabbergasted at the amount but ran off to put the order in leaving Kyuyo to watch the crowds.
When her food arrived more people had started to arrive, people she didn't take heed of as she had food that needed eating. Kyuyo dug in, eating like a starved animal, leaving the server to run off wide eye. No longer then a few minutes did it take her to eat all the food set before her, leaning back and patting her belly with her hands. She smiled again and set her hand on the table, staring at the red markings and the claws on her hand.
"who... am i...."
The question haunted her for many years now, yet only now had she felt the need to try and find out. Well that was probably a excuse, with Lana's death she had not really been welcome in the village she had been staying in. The village itself was a small place not even on any map, cosy for what it was with a HUGE inn. The men would go out and fish or cut wood while the women would clean cloths and care for the children. Kyuyo had been think back that she didn't see the server holding a slip of paper, the girl mentioned something about a bill.
She didn't have any jewel, she had forgotten that bigger citys used money. Kyuyo patted her waist anyways hoping that she had something to give to the girl, but all she had was a few knick-nacks for the most part nothing of real value. She pulled them out and and set them on the table, a small carved wooden wolf, a metal coin with the Shogeki family crest on it, a single small emerald and lastly the butterfly tassel from her sword. She motioned to the girl and spoke very quietly.
"I have no money..."
The woman frowned and took off, Kyuyo sighed she had garnered the attention of the people whom owned the place. Kyuyo sighed and clenched her hand into a fist, her claws drawing points of blood where they punctured the skin. The pain brought her mind into focus, which was busy trying to think of a way out of the situation. she could wash dishes but she didn't like staying in one place to long and the number on the paper, which was sitting in front of her was quite large. She took a deep breath and sighed, all she could do is sit and wait now. All because she had let her hunger get ahead of her mind. "That appetite will get you in trouble someday..." The words Lana had said to her a good time ago, Smiling faintly Kyuyo leaned back and closed her eyes.
"yes mom i know...."
