Oh wait, that was a private RP between me and Ukie.... Well, yes. Davy Jones is a 'semi-permanent' resident at the Inn. Fortunately, he almost never leaves his room. (which is considered a locker by more than a few world) Those who have visited the Inn from various worlds that have had the chance to meet him essentially brought back horrid tales of a man known as Davy Jones. Worlds in early development have been shaped by this person, and now tales of him exist everywhere. pirate

Looking down at the glasses Mat had made Corwin scoffed slightly. He reached out and gently took hold of Ukaia's glass with his finger tips. "Sorry but... That glass isn't quite appropriate for what I'll be serving you." Corwin said reasonably as he gently pulled the glass away from her hands and set it down towards Mat's side of the counter. There was no problem with a regular glass, but Corwin wanted to provide a quality experience for his guests, something a regular glass just could not accomplish.
Bending down below the bar, Corwin took out a bottle of Cocoa Liqueur, Brandy, and a small cup of fresh cream. "How about something to cure every woman's troubles." Corwin said as he smiled at Ukaia. "A dessert cocktail for any woman with a sweet tooth, the Alexander." Corwin said as he pulled out a glass and filling just about a 1/4 with the Brandy. Then he lightly poured the Cocoa Liqueur down into the bottle, his hands showing grace and form. These were the hands of something with experience behind the counter. After adding the fresh cream to the glass. Corwin pulled out his cocktail mixer and then filled it halfway with ice. He about added the mixture to the ice to start the mixing process when he stopped and looked back at Ukaia. A smile crossed his face. "Ukaia, you don't strike me to much as someone who would enjoy strong drinks." He said as he added a bit more ice cubes to the cocktail mixer. The Alexander wasn't entirely strong, but it was a thick enough of a drink that he could afford to use a bit more ice to dilute the smell of the Brandy without sacrificing the drinks smoothness and flavor.
Corwin pulled out one cocktail glass that had been lightly chilled under the bar and set it down on the bartop in front of him. He then poured the drink into the mixer and started to shake it violently. "Sometimes separate things can be hard to mix." Corwin said as he continued to shake the mixer filled with ice. "But, given enough time and care..." Corwin paused as he stopped shaking and then slowly started to strain the drink into the chilled cocktail glass, the lightly tan colored liquid poring down in front of Ukaia's eyes.
"Even the things that like Liqueur and Chocolate can harmonize." Corwin then stuck his hand under the counter and pulled out one stick of nutmeg. Corwin lightly started to shave the nutmeg over the top of the cocktail, giving it small almost dust like flakes of nutmeg sprinkled as a garnish that's taste lightly complimented the drink. Placing his fingers at the base of the cocktail glass, Corwin slowly moved it across the bar in front of Ukaia. "And here you are my lady, an Alexander." Corwin said, bowing to her as he extended the glass.
"Now then." Corwin said before looking over at Mat. "As for you Mat, how about something different. Something with a bit of interesting history that I think you'll enjoy." Corwin said smirking at Mat before he pulled out a small white plate, setting it on the bartop. He then pulled out a bottle of Chartreuse. "Chartreuse, one of the oldest liqueurs of my world. The original formula is said to date back to 1605. This alcohol uses 130 different spices and herbs. The production method is only passed to 3 monks every generation. They kept it that way 342 years so far." Corwin said as he got lost in his story. He then snapped back into himself and removed the bottle from the counter, putting it back on the shelf behind him. "There are several types of Chartreuse such as Jaune and Vert, those being Yellow and Green respectively. However, what I have for you is another type. Eve." Corwin said before turning around to face Mat with a smaller bottle filled with a light green liqueur. "Taken from Elixir Ve'getal, which means 'The Plant Elixir'." Corwin held the bottle up to look at the coloring as he talked. "The formula is very similar to the original. A strong aroma with 71% alcohol, something far to strong to drink like this alone... However." Corwin started to say before he placed a small sugar cube down on the white plate in front of Mat. "It's said to be an Elixir that grants the drinker eternal life." Corwin said as he tipped the bottle slightly, letting one drop of Eve fall onto the sugar cube.
The cube quickly absorbed the liqueur. "Let the Eve sink into the sugar, then hold it in your mouth to drink it as it melts. This is the drinking method taught by the monastery." Corwin said before nodding to Mat, as if giving him his blessing. Corwin turned back around to put away the bottle of Eve. "The sweetness of sugar can alleviate fatigue, the high alcohol content raises the spirit, and the herbs have medicinal composition." Corwin said as he placed the bottle back onto the shelf. "All that fuss over a little sugar cube...."
Corwin turned back to his guests and smiled. "Well don't I feel like a working man again."
Ukaia pouted slightly when he said that the cup that Mat had just made for her wasn' t good enough. But still she would lean forward and watch curiously as he worked on the drink.
"Mm.. that smells good" she said sniffing the air as the liquors were poured.. the chocolate and the cream. The other one had a bit of a pungent smell to it, but still it wasn't bad. she tilted her head as he added a bit more ice, and then she giggled at the shaking of the drink.
"Heh.. that looks like fun!!" she said happily her tail flicking eagerly behind her. She watched as he poured the well mixed drink into the cold cup and then sniffed at the nutmeg, such a lovely combination of smells from that drink. Eagerly she took it from him purrring and then took a small sip. Savoring the tastes that floated around on her tongue she nodded
"Mmm.. this is wonderful " she said to him happily. Though watching as he spoke about Matt's drink and how he held the bottle. She was quite curious about it, and was surprised when he only added only one drop to the sugar cube.
"I want one to!!" she said after she saw that and looked curiously, still sipping at her very yummy drink.
"Can I please?" she asked him, crimson eyes turned to him curious and eager to try something new. She didn't think she had ever seen a preparation like that before, and wondered what the taste would be like. Though she loved her yummy chocolate drink and the smooth rich flavor that coated her mouth.
He thought for a moment, after he was given the cube and Ukaia had asked the question. "I suppose. Only enough for a taste though." He glared at the cube for a moment, before it made a duplicate of itself, although significantly smaller, and it floated to Ukaia.
Then he looked back to Corwin and let his head fall onto his hand, which was now propped on the table. "You would grab the most legendary of drinks you know, wouldn't you?" Mat's tongue went directly to the cube, though his head hadn't moved at all. It was elongated and curled slightly into a straw now. Slowly, purposefully, Mat drew the dissolving sugar cube up the tongue-straw and stared right at Corwin.
Knowing that Corwin had successfully served what was essentially a god
with nothing but his own abilities made him feel a great sense of
accomplishment. A cocky smile looked down at Mat after he took part in
This put Corwin in such a good mood that he would even forgive Mat for
serving Ukaia himself. Even touching the bottles of liqueur at a bar
was considered highly rude, but since Mat didn't really do that it was
kind of a gray area. Either way it wasn't to big of a deal this time.
Corwin had turned away from them to place his equipment in the sink
and quickly wash it out and then drying it with a white towel. Turning
back to them he threw the towel over his shoulder. "I'm glad your both
enjoying your drinks." He said humbly
Looking past the two at his bar he noticed the light from outside the
open door. The golden hour was upon them. The sun was retreating and
the sky was now heavily stained in a carmel color.
"We're about to enter my favorite part of this place." Corwin said as
he gestured past the both of them. Time had really flown by. "This
place has a beauty that can only truly be appreciated by showing it's
darker side when the sun goes down."
Ukaia squeed happily when she was allowed one and she quite eagerly bit the cube out of mid air as Mat floated it to her. She made a slightly odd face, the overwhelming sugar, and then the bitter and other hearbal flavors contrasted sharply with the rich chocolate that was in her mouth
"Eeh,, " she mumbled after swallowing the mouthful and wrinkling up her nose. Either she really hated it, or that was just a very bad combination. She wasn't sure witch it was. Bleh though, she turned and looked outside and her ears perked as she took a drink of her chocolate drink, the alchol already effecting her. Though Ukaia wasn't going to notice it just yet, but her face was slightly flushed, in normal form it would take far more then this to get her drunk. As it was, she was probably going to be a giggling mess at the end of this drink now.
"Ooh/. it looks pretty" she purred out as she stood and blinked as the world tilted a bit. woops.. she giggled faintly and took another drink of her drink. Nummy!
Mat simply sat and let the two leave. Ukaia was a smart girl, and by all means wouldn't let herself come to harm, so he stayed. He still didn't like Corwin, but that was his own thoughts. Let Ukaia decide for herself whether or not the man was worth her time.

As the sun set, Lynn and Ari rested on the shore of the beach. They had gone at it for a while now, though it was mostly Ari laying the smack down on Lynn, and the two of them lay on the beach breathing heavily.
"Just who the hell are you anyway....?" Lynn asked between her heavy breathing.
".... Just a girl, you know?" Ari responded, also breathing heavily.
Lynn looked over at Ari who was staring off into the slowly darkening sky. Taking a deep breath Lynn sat up and then hugged her legs. There was a bit of silence between the two until Ari decided to ask Lynn something a bit personal.
"So why don't you just tell him?"
"W-what?" Lynn replied, caught off guard by Ari's question.
Ari smirked and rolled her head over to look up at Lynn. "You know you wanna hop on that red chicke-" Lynn immediately threw dry sand at Ari's face.
"Who taught you how to talk like that!" Lynn shouted, blushing furiously.
"PFFT." Ari brushed away the sand. "Look, you should just be honest with him. I know he seems a little distant, but hes a pretty accepting guy. Hes important to you... And I think your pretty important to him too." Ari slowly sat up and scooted nest to Lynn.
Ari's words left an impact on Lynn. Everything the girl said was true... And she did want there to be something more between her and Mat. Lynn had made the decision then. Putting her hands on her knees Lynn rose to her feet and looked out towards the houses. She noticed Ukaia and Corwin leaving from the farthest house, so Mat must still be there as well. Ari popped up as well and then motioned for Lynn to come closer. Hesitant, Lynn bent down a little to let Ari whisper in her ear. Lynn blinked a few times, surprised. Ari backed away and smiled at Lynn.
"Good luck." Ari said before giving Lynn the universal sign of peace. Lynn returned her smile, especially after she had received such a powerful trump card from the girl. "Thankyou." Lynn said before setting off to see him...
Walking down the bridge it had begun to get dark and the sun had already gone down, the night sky was so clear that the moon kept everything illuminated, not that the bridge wasn't already lit up. Lynn eventually passed by Ukaia and Corwin. The later of whom she did nothing but glare at. He responded with a cocky smile... What a jerk.
Having finally reached Corwin's residence, Lynn noticed that the lights had automatically turned on inside. She took a deep breath and walked over to an open doorway that lead into the small house. She saw Mat sitting at the counter. For some reason, seeing him alone like that made her feel a bit distraught. Lynn leaned against the doorway, letting her right arm hang loose she reached over across her chest and held onto it with her left hand. She could still feel a bit of the seas salt on her skin.
"Hey." Lynn said, figuring that Mat already knew she was there. "I think we should talk... A little more."
