She walked into the bar dressed in a long black leather coat. It was frayed at the edges, and in only slightly better shape than the other clothes she was wearing. They all looked like they'd been stolen from a Goodwill bin except for the coat. Callie had taken that off of a goth kid that had gotten in her way. Her face was almost white as death, dark ashen tears had stained her cheeks and lips. She thought she might find someone here who could help her answer the big questions.

Why was she back?

Julie looks up from her book when Callie enters, then sets it aside and stands. Walking over, she puts on a comforting smile. "Well hello there. What's your pleasure?"

"I don't really know," Callie says looking about like she's horribly lost. "I need questions answered. I need to know why I'm here. Need to find my little girl."

"Those aren't easy things to provide. Why don't we sit somewhere and discuss things?" She gestures towards a table.

As the pale woman moved towards the table, a large jet black crow swooped into the room to land on her shoulders. Its long sharp talons leaving scratches and cuts in the white flesh that seeped ashen liquid before closing up as fast as they were created. "I think I'm Callie Winters. At least that's what the tombstone said."

"Ah. That's a safe bet, then." She waits for Callie to sit before taking a seat herself. "And you were dead?"

"There was an explosion and fire." She paused taking off the long leather coat, and showing the woman the tracery of heavy scars on her arms that look like she was pieced back together. "I don't remember all of it. I was in the dirt when I came back. He was watching me, even in the rain."

She looks over the scars, then reaches out and takes Callie's hand in her own.

"He?"

The woman's hand is so warm, like living flame. "The crow. He was waiting for me. He took me where I used to live. Showed me where I died."

"Oh, I see. You're very warm. Are you hungry, or thirsty?" She gently turns Callie's hand over, examining her palm.

((Sorry, I meant that your hand was very warm. Callie's skin is cold as death))

"No," she cocked her to the side looking very much like her companion crow who hopped over to straddle the back of an empty chair at the table. "But I think he is hungry."

((Ah, then assume Julie said she was cold please?))

"And what do you think he'd like to eat?"

"I...I shall see what can be arranged." With a warm smile, she goes off to confer with the kitchen staff.

Callie watched as the woman left. Cocking her head at her bird. "Wish you could talk," she said sadly. "Then I'd get all my answers, wouldn't I?"

Julie returns a few minutes later with a plate of--well, that's best not described, really; but the bird should like it. "I hope this will be pleasing for your companion?"

"I am suddenly very, very happy that I have absolutely no interest in food and haven't since I clawed my way out of the grave."
