"Ooh, Haveners, it's the bestest time of the week. Aren't you going to gather around? Aren't you going to listen with every fiber of your being?" From anyone else the words could have been a vibrant cheer like the first rays of sun, waking Agrelos to something important. It could have been said with humor, or a laugh. It could have been replaced by words of a far more serious nature, clean cut and out to dry. From the somali, however, the words are laced with the frustration of a specialised weapon unable to fulfill that speciality. Juba hadn't come back in the time she had given him. She can't go after him without leaving someone soft or low ranking in charge. And still, she grins.
The itch to leaves creeps up, up, up over her spine and shoulders, fingers of it thrumming against her throat. Too many eyes waiting for the meeting reminds her of just how useless being General makes her in relation to her purpose. They wait, so she begins. "We have oh so much fresh meet this week. Our newest members are York , WARCRIMES , Applebutter ( kerosene ), ALAKSIEJ S.I. , and ARLO DONATELLI . Nebula Reaver-Break and Draco Reaver-Break came back to us like homing pigeons." A strange lot of joiners, this one. Riddled with murderers and not all of them obvious.
"Alaksiej and Glitterglitch get the Ward title, easy as that. PRISMNIGHT gets a shout-out for showing his face around again, and Ver Million will step up to Prior now that her ward restrictions are lifted." Despite her grin and status as a General of a peaceful clan, she leaves no room for protest. Juba had agreed to it, after all, and she's eager to fill the empty armory of Haveners with capable fighters like the current Wards. "If you want to bulk out our empty ranks, apply. Helps us know where you want to go, applying."
Knowing that the bulk of the meeting is almost done the urge to teleport away tightens around her throat, squeezing words past sharp teeth, quick-smart. "The Sanctuary has invited us to a picnic. We're trial allies for now but play nice, or you won't be playing for a while, no siree." Allies had been plaguing their borders lately, setting S on edge, dousing her in suspicion. It needs to be balanced. "Someone host weekly tasks or I will, and you won't be happy, oh no. That's all for the happy Haven life, so if that's all you're here for, you're dismissed."
She waits a moment for some creatures to filter out, noting them, using her grin in the place of a snarl.
"Juba is missing." The most exciting part of the week and the most frustration. That tone that had laced the meeting's commencement returns in full force. "There was no sign of struggle and no obvious scent, but he hasn't been here for a few days, hide or hair. Ideas, plans, and reasons to get him back, now."
