Eilidh grinned at the promise of a good thick stew. Sweet drinks like hot cocoa were all well and good, but nothing ever quite hit the spot like wolfing down a big serving of slow cooked meat in a thick broth rich with potatoes and vegetables for staving off the cold and making one feel at home. The only thing that would make it better as far as she was concerned was if the restaurant was set up more like a feasting hall with a big pot of the stuff simmering away on the fire for anyone to help themselves to, the dull roar of conversation welcoming you in after a long day at work, everyone laughing and treating each other with the warm ease that only came from having known your neighbor for all your life...
Eilidh blinked as she brought her attention back to the here and now, realizing that she'd managed to get lost in a memory of her old home. She had brought herself out of her reverie just in time to catch Leila telling her about the rather lax nature that the guild approached it's members activities with. Nothing that Eilidh hadn't expected, but then again she also didn't really know the laws of the world at large, having only really been concerned with the laws of her own village for most of her life, and so had been acting according to what she felt were common sense laws, don't steal, don't attack others except in self defense, normal things like that so she didn't feel that she'd really be at risk for breaking the one rule she had been given.
It also sounded like the guild took care of it's members, but Eilidh was curious about one thing. "You won't have to worry about me turning everyone against the guild, " assuming he isn't a big enough figure to cause an uproar, "and all those amenities sound wonderful, " Eilidh giggled a bit, "though I don't think I'll be using that warp too often. I'm no stranger to harsh winter weather and that big 'ol wolf out there probably needs some company, but I do have one question."
Eilidh wanted to cast her gaze down to the tables and wring her hands together as she took a breath to proceed, but she managed to keep her gaze stead and meet the eyes of both Leila and the new woman, "How close knit is your guild? I'm... I'm looking for something like a family. I come from a village that is-was very close knit. Everyone was there for everyone else, and when one person succeeded the whole community celebrated, and when one person suffered everyone mourned with them. I realize that I may be asking a lot, but, " Eilidh sighed, very much aware that she had brought down the mood, "I just want some of that back."
