Joe whistles.

Trees tower high above his head. The sound of water flows in the distance. Yeah, this place is nice.

It reminds him a bit of Croaking Creek, or what his pa and ma told him about it. He doesn't actually remember much about the place. Just that it was a swampy marshland backed up to the coast where funny rock creatures and giant water lizards lived.

He does not smell the salty sea air though, so it probably isn't the same. Maybe more like Spirtlight Falls then.

Regardless, he likes what he sees.

Joe leans his head back, and howls.

When the summoning call echoed in the forest, Sarah happened to be the nearest person to the place and arrived before Terance or Arbiter. She first measured the stranger with a look and not feeling in any way impressed (to be fair - she did not like strangers in general, nothing personal), she closed the distance between them.

"What do you want?" Sarah asked, omitting the diplomatic nonesenses such as greetings and making no attempt to polite-fy her inquiry. She went straight to the point and expected him to do the same. Plain and simple answers, no eloquent speeches and meaningless praises.

Oh wow. Oh, wow.

Maybe she isn't impressed with him, but he's impressed with her. Joe thinks love smacked him firm in the face with a fat trout.

His jaw slowly creaks open and hangs there for a good bit too long. Awkward, but he's a bit starstruck. Talk about heart eyes right now.

Well, heβ€”... howdy! Uh, just... admiring how beautiful yβ€” this place is! I... What did he want again? He doesn't remember. Brain work!

Oh, man, ummmm... Do you guys have room for one more? Need a helping paw?

If the guy had been in any way as sensitive as Ibis, he would have been not only put off, but also deeply insulted by her tone. This guy did not seem particularly affected, he had not even notice the very un-subtle "better bugger off" side-meaning to her inquiry. Or the "you are wasting my precious time" vibe. Instead he stared at her for, what seemed ages, and made her feel uncomfortable. Also question his sanity a bit, but - let's remember - that she was not particularly objective person, who was very inclined not to like him. Just give her more reasons.

If Sarah had been in charge, she would have replied with a Big Fat NO!. They had lost the weight of good amount of strangers recently and she was content to have only the small circle of family. But whether this guy was going to gain access to the place, was up to Arbiter and Terance. Not her. She could "entertain" him until their arrival. "Are you any good?" she asked, postponing the exchange of names. After all, if the guy was cut out for work, did it really matter, what his name was?

That's an unexpected twist! :D
