"Well, I work for the Epitaph. We have employees all across Xenos, who record important events and news as it happens, and then we write and print it so that people can read about what is happening in other lands. More specifically, I am a field reporter. I travel across the land seeking the news, writing the stories and then also distributing the end product. I was attached to the Seekers, to report on their adventures... Obviously, that is a much more arduous task given my current... state."

"If you'd like, I could bring you a copy of the Epitaph each time we meet, as well as any other information I had to withhold? That would keep you up to date, and privy to some of the more... sensitive happenings that had to be hushed down."

He nods, and hastily jots a note in the back of his Epitaph-issue journal.

"The same to you, Syuzannah. I look forward to seeing you in Shuru."

He stands, pulling his cloak around him and striding purposefully into the night.

Syuzanna watches the awkward yet determined shamble as the reporter makes his exit.
Keeping his form in mind, she closes her eyes and reaches out with her vampiric senses.
Had anyone been nearby, they might have heard a strange chanting in a low voice, and maybe even seen an unnatural glow.
The light of the spell was weak in the darkness, and vanished soon afterwards.
"Dhat shuud keep yu een won pees for a leetle wyle longur..." came a whisper...but the clearing was empty.

On the edge of the clearing, a bright red fox poked it's nose out from beneath the leaf litter. It watched the vampire chanting with an appraising air. As she finished, the fox realised it was in the open and shuffled it's feet slightly
"Tweet, tweet. Nae, wait, tha's birds.... Growl?"
Realising the disguise hasn't taken, there's a moment of strangeness as two shapes seem to occupy the same space, then Trade is sitting on the ground, hat askew.
"I dinnae know wha' yer after, but I can see wha' ye've done. I'm keepin' an eye on tha' one, so ye'd better do wha' ye've promised. I think yer will, yer no' bad fer a hematophage."

The night mist swirls and coalesces, revealing Syuzanna's form from within it.
"Furgeef me, Trayde, ees eet? Ay dhought ay waz ahlon."
She bows in greeting.

"Ov kourse. A sharp mynd, dhis won, buht hees bodee growz week."
She makes an odd gesture, spreading her hands and dropping them down- an indication of something falling apart.

Trade looks slightly sceptical "An yer bright enoof to know a trade cuts booth weeys. Weel, ah'd better leave ye tae it."
She unfolds from the floor and doffs her hat
"Been a pleasure." There's a click of fingers and she vanishes.

The Celestial is gone.
Syuzanna sighs, and wonders what that was all about.
Was Trade simply looking after her investment?
Cecil had said that he owed her a favour.
She'd mentioned that a trade cuts both ways...had she been suggesting something, perhaps?
It hadn't felt like a threat. Which made a nice change.
Something to think about at least.
Her mind went over what she'd heard of the Celestials- and that they often made pacts for mortal souls.
This one seemed different.
But who could know?

The Vampire felt a now familiar sensation tugging at her, interrupting her musing, as the distant sound of a pulse crept into her awareness. It was coming from the direction of the Lord's manor.
Unbidden, a bitter thought asked her what state of her soul might be in.
She turned away, and slipped softly into the night.
