On the night of the full moon, the members of the Caern of the Mother's Open Hands gather in the Hanalei Refuge.

There is a new face in the crowd - a slender young woman with coarse dark hair and sharp features standing close to Njall.

Mends-the-Rifts addresses the group. "Melissa Sun-Chaser here," she indicates the young woman standing near Njall, "has brought grave news." She extends the Talking Stick to Melissa. "Will you tell them?"

** Oh, gods above... What an innocent! He's never met one of his own kind before, and doesn't stop to think that it could be anything other than a joyous welcoming? This must be carefully handled... And quickly. **

"Matt, I know little of your people -- but the one thing I have heard is that they are not usually fond of other peoples -- any other peoples -- and usually keep to themselves. If an entire group of them is approaching, it may or may not be good news. I think we can all recall how our first encounter with the menehune went -- hopefully we can avoid a repetition of that, but I do not think we shall do so by being too trusting.

"If you wish to try to intercept them and speak with them, that is good, but I think it would be safest if several of us followed -- out of sight. So that we may aid you if things go badly. Whoever can move quickly, and hide in shadows. Saki, how many of them are there?"

Lakshmi glances questioningly to the elders to see if they approve of this strategy -- if they seem approving, she will shift to feline and slip into the trees, ready to follow Matt.

"We saw five of them," Saki reports. "The rest of my sentai were trying to keep them from entering the Dragon Nest," she corrects herself, "er, caern, until we knew what they wanted." **And hopefully the boys and Tokiko haven't had any problems since I left.**

Noticing Lakshmi's glance, Njall gives her a brief, almost imperceptible nod. "You show the wisdom of your people, Lakshmi." He raises his voice to carry. "You heard her - Matthew, you may go to meet them, but it would be best if you had...escorts to make certain nothing untoward happened." He pauses. "We have one; do any others wish to go?" He looks at Saki. "You know where the shark-people are, cousin - will you guide the others there?"

Andreu steps forward without a word. With a nod to Matt, he's ready to follow.

Matt nods at Andreu and Lakshmi. "I am fine with them coming too." Matt tries not to roll his eyes as he adds, "And anyone else that is necessary." He pauses and adds. "Though before we leave, would you excuse me for a moment? I would like to change - clothes that is, in case I need to change, well, me."

When excused, Matt goes off intot he trees, out of the line of sight of the gathering with his backpack.
