Selinda yawned and stretched as she looked out her window at the sun that had just barely started to peek over the horizon. She loved her shop and her job and everything that came with it, but she also loved these few short moments at the beginning of the day where nothing important needed to be done, before she went downstairs and started to prepare the shop for business. She didnít mind the work, enjoyed it even, but contrary to what most of her customers thought, tea and her shop wasnít all she thought about...just most. With one last stretch she checked her clothing in a nearby mirror, then made her way down the stairs that exited into the storeís supply room. Bri would arrive soon to help her with the opening chores but there was no reason she couldnít get them started.

She walked out of the store room and moved behind the counter, filling several pots with water and setting them over small tongues of Witchfire. These pots would be for the customers that ordered specific teas instead of the pre-made ones she always kept brewed. Once that was done she moved over to the bakery section of the store and started getting things ready for Bri. Where Selinda was passionate about teas, her sister was just a passionate about baking and her talents kept Cuppa full of delicious smelling baked goods that complemented her teas perfectly. She turned her head when she heard the backdoor of the shop open and close, and called out to her sister. ďBri! Iíve got all the baking stuff ready for you when youíre ready!Ē

Bri yelled her thanks as she came out from the back and started to get the baked goods ready for the day. As her sister busied herself with the baking, Selinda went about brewing the teas she kept made and ready to serve and then went to set that tables and do a bit of cleaning. Once the first muffins came out of the oven, it was time to open. She walked over to the front door, waving to the few people who had already gathered outside and opened the door, welcoming each by name, as they were all regular customers. One older woman even stopped and asked her when she was going to find a nice man and settle down, and Selinda just laughed softly.

ďIf I can find a man who will put up with my tea obsession, maybe Iíll snatch him up, till then, Iím content with where I am.Ē The woman patted her cheek lightly and went to the counter to talk to Bri. Selinda breathed in the mornings air, still a bit crisp even though Spring had already arrived, and smiled. Today would be a good day.

When Graham had left the inn he and the little lutrani at that morning, he was pleased to note at that moment he didnít have a shadow. Not that the man didnít mind the little queen following him around, but there were times when he needed a break and right then was one of them. Besides, it had been quite some time since he had been in this particular place and he wanted to scout it out before heading to speak with anyone of high importance. Besides, he really needed to get his mind in order before going in all hot about what had happened back home. It would be horrible for everyone involved if all the men at the court rise to the killing edge. There was no fixing any problems from that.

He had gotten up early that morning, the air still crisp and nipping at his nose. Spring had come but Winter didnít seem to want to leave quite yet- Graham wished it would. As much as he liked cooler weather something moderate would be welcome then. Something he could use to burn the heat of his temper out in rather than sit inside and sulk all day. Those were days he pulled out the flask for just a sip which often sent Mara in to a frenzy. She hated the brandy he kept on him, and he did drink more than he should at times, but a little something to get the blood flowing never hurt a man. In fact when he was sick he often drank something harder to burn it out of his system. But she insisted on there being better ways than a drink to do that which often caused him to sigh. Mara was just as bad as his mother at times.

Graham was just about to turn around to head back to the warmth of the inn when he saw the little teashop. While he had never been one for tea, his mother had, and seeing the items in the store window brought back fond memories of when he was a child an- were those muffins? His stomach growled in complaint, it had been far too long since he had a muffin and Mother Night look at their size! Before he knew it his feet were moving taking him in to the warm shop where the smells of amazing things washed over him. Yes- two muffins, one for him and one for Mara would do well. Graham couldnít remember the last time he had seen the queen have a sweet treat. Something like this would work well and go well withÖ tea? Looking about the shop he shuffled up to the counter, stepping out of the way of some patrons heading for a table. When it was his turn he pointed to the muffins with a wide, boyish grin across his face. ďOkay. What types do you have because Iíll be needing two.Ē
