((For @Lithël Aelfwine only)) Annaliece turned the page of her most recent reading project and sighed. Thanks to the weather, very few people had actually come into the little bookstore today. Those that had hadn't even bough anything. They'd just looked around, said nothing, then immediately left. As a result, the young storekeeper hadn't even opened the cash register once today. Another dejected sigh was cut short by a weight landing on her shoulder, surprising Annaliece into flinching, but then relaxing once she felt the claws wrap around her shoulder. "I guess you don't like the lack of company either, huh Theodore?" she asked of her pet drake. The drake brought its head into the girl's view and nodded it once. Usually, it could be found sitting on its perch, as customers entered and exited, but since there were no customers, and there weren't likely to be any customers, it'd moved to Annaliece's shoulder. Attentive customers often claimed that the drake was watching them from its perch (which it was, but out of curiosity rather than malice) but never could they prove their case.
