There was a knock at the door. Stripetail opened it and saw a squirrel wearing a red shirt brown pants and a brown cloak, with the sword of Martin at his side. "I'd just like to inform you" said in a voice of fake cheer "there are rumors of a horde of vermin. I saw your dwelling and figured you should know. Have no fear the Guosim should arrive with Skip within the week. I am just here to warn the locals." Seeing the ghost he said "ah so you are the famous Lord Stripetail. I have heard many stories of you." there was a slight pause "could I stay for awhile." He said with a slight smirk on his face.

Lord Stripetail smiled. "Ah, you must be Samkin. Please come in and make yourself comfortable. Unfortunately the rumors you have heard are only too true, the vermin already devastated a local village and slew the residents. " He turned to let Samkin enter, and then shut the door behind him. He turned back towards the spirit of Fox Glove's mother. "forgive the interuption, please continue." Lord Stripetail
Samkin replied graciously "thank you" and sat down in quiet amazment that there was a ghost in the room. after the spectar finished talking he noticed the young ferret. He asked Foxglove why there was a ferret.

Lors Stripetail went upstairs and brought down a pawful of pies. He went over and gave them to Samkin." Here you go, Samkin, you must be hungry after your trip. It is very late, and I will be dismissing Fox Glove's parents soon so we can go to bed. I have an extra room you can use. We don't have a ferret here. You must be seeing things. But we do have a weaselbabe named Brome who is asleep upstairs." Lord Stripetail
Fox Glove gave Samkin a polite smile and then turned back to her parents, she felt almost silly, they had been standing there for quite some time and she hadn't even thought to ask their names. "Please contiune," she said. "Well, we the last place we stopped to get supplies was...oh I believe Salamandastron. We had a pretty big ship so we where able to take on a lot of supplies. That's why I thought our ship was sabatoged there...you would think that we would have wrecked earlier if we had been damaged before then. Oh, and my name is Maria, my husband's name is Maximus." Fox Glove's eyes watered a little bit but she brushed away the wetness. "I'm so glad I got to meet both of you...I will make you pround."

"Thank you Maximus. Thank you Maria. We won't forget you, and we will make your killers pay dearly, I assure you. You may return to your resting place now." The spirits bowed to him, and waved goodbye to Fox Glove, and floated out the door. Lord Stripetail turned to Samkin." We were busy listening to the spirits when you came in, and Fox Glove may not have heard all of your story. So If you would tell us a bit about yourself, I'd be much obliged. Keep it short, for we will be going to bed after you are finished. Tommorow, we will be making plans to deal with the vermin who attacked the village." Lord Stripetail
"Well the news first reached Redwall 6 days back. One of foremoles friends had seen the vermin. We heard the news and after a quick feast to calm everyone I left to tell the locals while skip rounded up his crew and log o log used there boats to warn salamandastron." he turned towards foxglove "You look tired here have a slice of pie before you go to bed." he handed one of the pies lord stripe tail had given him to fox glove. he then ate the remaining slices of pie and asked lord stripetail were he could sleep.

"Thank you Samkin. Now, time for bed. Follow me." Lord Stripetail went upstairs and turned right. He stooped when he reached a set of doors. "Rosey and the Dibbuns are sleeping in the second room from the left. Samkin, the room furtherest to the left is yours. Fox Glove, the second room from the right is for you. My room is to the far right. Good night to you all." Lord Stripetail nodded to them both and went to to the door on the far right . Lord Stripetail
Samkin walked to the door on the far left and entered it, closing the door as he went. Once inside he unstrapped the breastplate he had under his shirt and got into the bed. Two things were going through his mind "how are we going to stop the vermin" and "wow I just met Lord Stripetail
(OOC Can I call you stripe or stripy instead of Lord Stripetail all the time. No offense but you have a long name.)

OOC: Sure. You can call me Stripe for short. BIC: Lord Stripetail opened the door and set his staff down next to the bed. "It's been a long day," He said to himself as he got into bed." Tommorow, we're going after those blasted vermin. These lands are greatly different from where I grew up,some of my best friends were foxes and stoats. But these creatures deserve nothing more than to be cast into Hellgates."Thinking this to himself, he drfited off into sleep. Lord Stripetail

Fox Glove entered her room and after shutting the door behind her she immidiately flopped down on her bed. She wondered to herself why a squirl living all by his self would have so many bed rooms as she drifted off to sleep.

The hours passed and the early morning light drifted into the room. Lord Stripetail opened his eyes, got up and stretched. He yawned as he picked up his staff. Opening the door, he went past the the guest rooms. They were all closed indicating that his young friends were still asleep. He went over to the pantry, and checked his supplies." By the fates, I'm nearly out of food! But I'll fix that in a hurry." He pointed his staff at the room and commanded 'Implise Storus' and the room was instantly filled with bags of nuts and wheat. Nodding to himself he closed the pantry, and went downstairs. He plopped down in his favorite chair and grabbed a armful of scrolls." Let see, where is the map that shows the hideaway of the moles? They told me where it is once, but I've forgotten where it is. They gave me a map, now where is it?" He muttered to himself as he foraged through the dusty scrolls. Lord Stripetail
