(Red Right Hand) Take a Little Walk

    The sun was breaching the sectioned trail of cloud as daylight started leeching back into the world. Circe had passed on the location of the Gate under the viaduct. The graffiti under the bridge gets twisted and faded as it pulls into the rusting pipe that crooned with the dirty runoff of the city, belching it back into the river. The shadows appear to grow longer and strong around the entrance, eating the light as it drags into the Hedge beyond.

    Samuel sat on a hunk of concrete, watching the small trickle of cars overhead with faint interest. A full hiking bag lays next to the perch, and he picks at his talons with yet another ornate blade. Amber eyes watch as each Lost arrives for the trek.

    Abraham Norton , Sonnie Wu , Titania , Circe

    To clarify, the PCs have not entered the Hedge, this is outside the Gate. For the same of timeline, this happens the morning after Cole has been Banished, so the PC would not have been operating for Summer during the censure.

    Sonja arrived, dressed for a wilderness trek in blue jeans, a green flannel shirt over a black t-shirt (with a picture of a monkey on it), her red Hedgespun boots, and a black beanie. Her hair was worn in twin pigtails. Her quarterstaff was in her hand and a fully loaded messenger bag was slung across her back. Looking about, she noted only Samuel was here, and she smiled and waved as she approached.

    "Yo! I be ready for a market inspection! I feel like I should have a badge or something."

    Equipment: Quarterstaff, smartphone, throwing knife (concealed up one sleeve), messenger bag containing food and water for several days, a blanket, a change of clothes, matches, a pencil and notepad, a plastic keychain of a cartoon cloud blowing air.

    Abraham's clothes of choice for today were clearly picked for utility, not looks. Gone is the tasteful green coat glinting buttons of bronze, replaced with dark garments that - although not exactly counting as camouflage - at least didn't restrict movement.

    The sword is attached to a belt and sheathed. All the rest - hidden in a sturdy backpack.

    From the shadows under the bridge a blue and red figure appears, with a hump of green. Circe arrived with a duffel bag slung over her right shoulder. The green of it a horrid contrast to the deep crimson leather trench coat she wore belted at the waste. Only a pair of grey combat boots could be seen peaking out with a hint of denim trousers. There is an odd bulge to her right hip. "Hi ho everyone," her tone is a faux cheerful imitation of the famous frog. "Double bad news. I wasn't able ta get free samples fer you," she points at Samuel, "Or yer boss like I wanted. So ya can't go callin' shotgun. Second, Cole ain't showin' up. Cause reasons."

    Circe was sure they other Courtiers would if they'd paid attention to Richard's press release. She was less sure that they would hold their tongues about it in front of Samuel.

    Equipment: Duffle bag for meal bars, dried mundane fruits, water, a small LED lantern, 2 flashlights, 20' of rope, grill starter fluid, and her pump shotgun with 20 shells. She is Wearing her thin kevlar vest, leather trench coat, box of matches, shoulder holster Colt 45 with two clips and 30 rounds, knife in a hip sheath, and a knife in her boot.

    For the sake of expediency, someone can either call Titania or the PC can attend the Scene under the assumption that her presence was requested by Seraphina. Roleplay at your leisure.

    Yes, Sonnie was still ignoring Abraham. Total silent treatment.

    She turned to Circe and smiled, walking over to the blue elf. "Really? We seem to be losing members of the expedition left and right. Is Titania going to show up? I know Seraphina suggested her as some kind of replacement, but did any of us call her and confirm she's coming? I've been assuming Sera did." The Beast idly gave her staff a twirl.

    A striking brunette in her 20s with deep blue eyes, shoulder length hair and a 1000-watt smile. Her features have a radiant beauty to them. She styles herself after the latest fashions, never forgetting to add a touch of tradition to her mises.
    Titania

    Mien

    The elegant and armonious movement of the celestial spheres is reflected upon her hair, galaxies dance across the pitch black background in clockwork-like precision, delicate specks of moondust blaze down in her wake, disappearing just as they touch the floor. Her eyes, like star sapphires, shine in tandem with the globes of light that dance around her, floating like planets swept around a Sun.
    Titania

    Mantle

    A field of roses under the glistening pale moon of a star sprangled spring night. Occasionally, midnight blue roses emerge from her hair, their petals swept by a gentle breeze, just to fade into the bed of sparkling diamond moondust left in her trail by her mien, vanishing without trace soon thereafter.

    Details offered had been awfully scarce, or maybe she just hadn't paid enough attention to them. Likely the latter, because as soon as Sera had mentioned the Hedge, her mind had began racing.
    So it didn't come as a surprise when the Fairest appeared outfitted more for a leisure stroll among the trendy avenues of downtown than for the very dangers of the Hedge. Sporting a pair of killer ankle boots, a blue denim jacket, a cute black miniskirt and a brown fedora, the woman looked so far out of place that you wouldn't tell she belonged to the same group. As impractical as it might be for anything but the most mundane errands, it was the perfect mix of cute and chic.
    She waves at the group from a distance with one hand, slung over her other shoulder is a large fur bag."Greetings! Have you been waiting for long?", she asks smiling,
    "Silly me, of course you haven't. My timing is always impeccable", she adds. "I bought some food, you can't have a picnic without a treat or two. And scissors, yes, just in case we find some curious looking fruit", a court of of wisps follows in her dusty wake. Almost by reflex, she adjusts the hat protecting the rose upon her head.
    She blinks, not once but twice. She's perplexed and it shows. The people in front of her are outfitted like the members of a war-party of the Queen's army going deep hunting among the darkest corners of Africa. Sure, the Hedge is dangerous and scary, but would they need elephant guns and rivets like in that Conrad's novel? "Should we..."

    Sandwiches, a thermos with tea, make-up, perfume, her cellphone, moleskine + pencil, an apple, 2 bottles of water, sunglasses

    "I don't know Sonny," Circe says as she looks over the monkey girl's head. Her crimson eyes fix on Titania, "But they say if ya speak o' the devil he may appear," she waves her left hand out over Sonnie towards Titania. Wait scissors? Just scissors? Circe was suddenly glad she'd brought had a utility knife in her boot. Because she had a feeling she might have to carve a walking or pointy stick for Titania.

    She looked at Abrham, down at Sonnie, and over to Samuel. Then to Titinia, "Oookay Titania. Yes. Keep a eye out fer the healing fruits 'cause I think yer the healer. Certainly not the fighter," she looks up to Samuel, "Any reason ta tarry Samuel? Need me ta go buy duct tape, beer, or something? I'm good save fer a couple of seconds prep on the other side."

    Circe wasn't going to load up a shotgun out in plain mundane sight.

    The rogue in Hedgespun regalia shakes his head at Circe's question. The very slightest of concerned frowns is spared for the approaching woman, and then it slowly dawns on him that she is indeed coming along.

    "Cole isn't coming," he confirms. Whether he is relieved or disappointed isn't clear on the surface as he preens a few metallic feathers. "And Seraphina isn't either." With a sigh, the pale figure places the dagger back in its sheath before flitting from the concrete as if he was lighter than gravity. Shouldering his bag, he offers a practiced bow to Titania ,

    "Samuel of the Red Poppy Company," he says with airs of good breeding and composure. "Did your cohorts inform you this is more than a jaunt, mademoiselle?" His tone is polite and measured rather than condescending. After what he had seen at Garden Grounds, nothing really surprised him with Sacramento's Courts.

    At Circe's gesture, Sonnie turned about and eyed Titania's outfit, which just made her smile in wry amusement. "Well, I'm sure the sherpas will be here momentarily to carry our luggage on this safari, Lady Titania. With luck, we'll make good time and they'll have camp set up in time for tea."

    She leaned on her staff and watched as Samuel introduced himself to the Bright One.
