Headquarters to Izurdin's Hammer and the entry point into and out of Sultros City, Sultros Citadel is the farthest most outsiders will ever travel into the Isurian Kingdom. Heavily fortified and intimidating to view, the Citadel is the mirror of Isur strength, endurance and patience.

[ The Courtyard ]


Today was the day she finally decided to buy the kitten. The merchant had said that by now the kittens would be old enough to sell. His family had long been breeding and selling cats, and this was his first trip to Sultros. And kittens were so incredibly adorable she just had to get one. HAD TO.

When she'd found the tent with the kittens, most of them were still there, including the one she had her eye one. A soft black kitty with green-yellow eyes, who stood out from his white-spotted littermates. Adorable. The merchant noticed her and beckoned her to where he was standing.

"Do you know how to take care of a cat?" He spoke Isur quite well, especially for a human. According to him, an Isur in Alvadas learned of his plans to trade with Sultros and taught him. His human accent was noticeable, but he was understandable.

"No. I've never known anyone with a cat." Which was perfectly fine with her. Cats looked so much more adorable than the dumb lizards that Cylani sold.

"These kittens have been weaned already, so you won't need to worry about that. It would be best to allow it free access to roam around and let him go outside. Yours will be able to find its way home. Feed him raw fish, but no moss or vegetables, and try to keep a bowl of water for when he gets thirsty. Try to play with and cuddle him often." He turned around and picked up a small leather collar, made for the first few years of life for a cat, and handed it to her. "It will be five gold-rimmed mizas and two silver-rimmed mizas, please."

When she handed him the money, he took back the leather collar, affixed it to her kitten of choice, and handed it to her with a smile.


IS THIS THE END?
