Sherry the Mouse sat on Lieutenant Bob’s shoulder as he patrolled the streets of Vesper. This wasn’t his normal beat, but he was suspicious of Mary. She turns up then the animals around Moonglow go rabid. Things were quiet. Perhaps too quiet? He wanted to talk with her again, but so many of the Guard had spoken with her that if he walked in now she could yell, ‘harassment!!’ and it would be looked at as true. Fortunately Sherry was a friend of Selby who was one of the Ironwood Innkeepers. She agreed to do some scouting for him.
As they passed the Inn, Sherry hopped down and headed in. The moment she went in, she knew something was wrong, but couldn’t figure out what it was. A feeling of foreboding overwhelmed her. She shrugged off the feeling and after a short search found Selby in one of the rooms used for storage.
“Sherry! It’s been a long time my friend! How are you!” he exclaimed with a large smile.
“Very well indeed! How are you? How’s business?” asked Sherry.
“Very good! The Inn seems to have become blessed! The rats that have plagued us are gone. They used to get into the food we stored in here. My they made a mess. Disgusting creatures. I can’t tell you how nice it is to have them gone!” replied Selby.
After she finished chatting with Selby she headed out and found Bob. Once again perched on his shoulder the two of them discussed the conversation. “I don’t think the Inn has been blessed,” said Bob. “Nor do I,” said Sherry.
“I’m going to ask Queen Dawn permission to place a com crystal in Mary’s quarters,” Bob decided with much trepidation.
