Taking in the sight of the woman before him appreciatively, Nicos reaches out and grasps the outstretched hand firmly.

"I didn't know my fame had reached so far," he says with a smile that seemed to turn on automatically.

With a small laugh the woman shakes her head. "I'm afraid to tell you, but it hasn't. I knew you by your arm."

Letting go of her hand, Nicos holds up his arm, as if appraising it by sight. "Well I must admit it is a fine looking arm. A rare specimen indeed, though I didn't know its fame had spread so far."

Her smile widening into a grin, Gemoud replies in the same vein of humour. "Oh yes, I've been a fan of it since I was a little girl. We used to gather around the fire at night, while tales of The Arm were told." Eyeing to bard mock-contemplatively. "I never did hear any about you though."

Laughing loudly, and momentarily disturbing the room, Nicos gives the woman a small bow. "Well said. 'Tis rare that you meet someone as quick of wit and humour out in the world these days. To what do I owe the pleasure?"

"I must confess I have an ulterior motive. I was sent out to find you and guide you around the Citadel if you so desired, and see to any of your needs. You did surprise me though, I was about to head over to your rooms to seek for you, when I find that you had already discovered me!" Reaching out and touching his arm she finishes, "Well we've found each other now, and you saved me a trip. So what can I do for you? A tour of the Citadel? Or around the Library perhaps, it would take just as long, as we have a extensive selection of books."

Loosing his smile for a moment, the bard looks at the woman as if considering something. Passing almost before it began, the man's smile is back on his face. "Truthfully I was just idling wondering around when I encroached upon this place of learning. Now however, I regret leaving the refectory behind so hastily. I find that Iíve grown rather hungry. Will you do me the honour of escorting me back?"
