Edig shrugs.  "No one around 'ere like that, sir." he replies.  "Once in
a while, one'll come from England way."

Bongo laughs.  "Well, you're a pretty damn handy person to have around,
lady or not!"  Bongo gathers up the metal box and the journal and packs
it with the rest of his stuff and follows Kyle and Amanda out the door.

Edig runs after Kyle, while Phaeton grabs a few more bites of food and 
falls in behind Bongo.  Lena looks to Arden.  "Coming, silly?" she asks,
giving him a nudge with her elbow.

Kyle's trained eyes dart up and down the road.  It's now a busy morning,
the shops are open, market stalls erected, and everything from potions
to fruit are on sale.  Kyle looks back down the road towards the harbor
and the O'Hare and Sons weapons shop.  He notices that the sign on the door says "Closed".  It appears that their friend Griz has decided to take off early... very early.  It's only about 10 o'clock in the morning!

OOC: I'm going to assume that the rest of you follow Kyle, Amanda and Bongo
out the door.
