Fenyx looks over to the man that was encountered earlier.
"Whatever this young lady has is not to be counted among the items to be auctioned. Whatever else you find is yours to catalog." Fenyx bows and looks to Akatsuki on where to go next.
Chosk (and his son) are watching the group. Or maybe they are watching the slight amount of chilled fog that rises from Maffei's body.
Either way, Chosk nods in agreement that he will not be including Maffei's gear in the auction.
"No rush. No rush at all." Aka says, swinging up into her saddle, "Sure I can't convince you to try joining me?" she asks, holding a hand out to Maffei."Like I said, just a chance to spend some time with some friends, working in a little training for Onyx and..well.. most of the rest we've already done." she glances at Maffei, smiles again.
She watches the horses with almost the same caution as Willem does. "I'd prefer not to spook them, given a choice." But she smiles.
And later in the nice, shaded glen picked for the picnic, she seems to enjoy watching the two girls work with the animals.
"if you decide otherwise, I'm sure Hana will humor me." she pats Hana's neck, then fishes out a carrot from her pack. "Won't you girl?"
When Hana catches scent of Maffei, she does shy away. Although she doesn't seem inclined to attack or run, it is the same unease that the mare has around Willem.
After the girl has been gone for about 10 minutes, the same quiet, slightly bony woman appears, with her self-heating pot. There is a slight half-grin as she places it near to Willem. "I don't think Xemne has any tea, although she may well use it as a base for one of her brews." She nods her head, "But I am very happy to share."
