Aislinn hears the sound of someone moving around inside... shortly before they respond to the knock and greet the group. Before them stands an older man, his hair mostly gray though there's a few strands of brown here and there. "Hello. Can I help you?" he greets them.

Rinnian puts on his most charming grin and extends a hand, "Hello there sir, my name's Rinnian. The mayor told us your daughter might know something as to the whereabouts to a boy who's recently gone missing. Do you know where she might be?"

"Aye, she's home resting. You don't need to bother her any anyhow. She's been through enough. I'm pretty sure something in the lake ate him. I always tell people to be careful, but nobody takes it seriously." he sighs. "Anyway, if the mayor sent you then I guess you might kill whatever it is? That'd certainly be a weight off my mind and might do the boy's parents some good knowing whatever beast responsible was slain."

The guy does not seem to be lying as far as Rinnian can tell. Nor does he seem to have any motivation to lie. In fact, Rinnian wonders why he even thought this guy might lie.

"No. And that's the most blasted thing. I've been fishing this lake my whole life and I've never got a good look at whatever is lurking down there. Something big is all I can tell. Heck, I only caught a glimpse of movement every few years, but for the last while I've been seeing more. Maybe it was hibernating or such? Though that'd be one long nap. Or could just mostly stay deep. Well, whatever the case, feel free to use my boat if ya like. It's tied up on the dock."

Terry shrugs, though smiling a bit to himself. "Always up for a good quest... Although I have to say, I haven't heard your name despite growing up around here..." He says, looking to the man with an inquisitive look. "Can't say I know much about ya either..."

Aislinn frowns in thought. "I gotta ask what makes you so sure something ate him? For all we know he could've been kidnapped and the trail will go cold while we waste time chasing fish. Even if she has been through a lot, I'd still rather get her side of the story. It could potentially save lives. Or if he was eaten, she might've gotten a better look at what did it than you and can help us learn what to expect."

The man shrugs and replies to Terry, "Not much to know. Fishing the lake is all I've ever known and done really. I'm Finn."

His face turns into a scowl at Aislinn's words and he replies, "Look here missy green leaves! I won't have you upsetting my girl further, you hear me? She told me something pulled the boy under and my girl's no liar! She said she didn't see what it was an that's that!"

"Because teenage girls never lie. We don't want to upset her at all, sir, but my compatriots are right, we should make sure we know as much as possible about what's going on."

"You just call my girl a liar?" the man says in a voice so cold Rinnian contemplates the hold he has on his bladder.

Terry steps in. "No Finn, we ain't trying to call her a liar. We just think we might have more information, and thus a better chance to get this thing, by talkin to her directly."

Aislinn frowns and walks up from the group directly in front of the fisherman close enough to be well within his personal space and glares up at him as she folds her arms in front of her chest and taps her foot impatiently. "I can hardly believe the way you're behaving. As a father, imagine if it were her that was missing and the boys parents refused to let people who could potentially bring her back home safely try to get the information they need to do so! Any little information, no matter how trivial it seems, could potentially be key. Can you live with the consequences of your actions if you refusing to simply let us talk to her resulted in us lacking information that might've been critical?!"

((roll: 16 to intimidate))

The man glares at Aislinn and then throws his hands into the air and says, "Fine! Fine! Go make my girl cry more just to make her tell you her woes herself! I'm sure it'll do you bugger's a fat lot of good too!" and at this he stomps out, presumably in the direction of his home.

It doesn't take long to get to Finn's house which is one of a few in a "group" (though not really all that close) somewhat near the lake. He goes in and gently wakes up his daughter and brings her out to talk to the group. Her eyes are red, clearly from crying a lot.

Rinnian puts on a gently smile and says, "Hey there, kiddo. My name's Rinnian, and these are my traveling associates, Terry and Aislinn. We, uh, we're here to ask you a few questions, about what happened."

The girl tells her story about how she and her.... friend who is a boy... were swimming out in the lake, like they've done many times before, when suddenly something pulled him under. All she saw was a large shadow fleeing underwater after she noticed he'd vanished. She then quickly swam to shore and waited for him to come back up and when he didn't after a while she searched all around the lake in case it was a prank. Then she went to visit his home, but nobody had heard from him. Then she came back and told her father. She manages to tell you all this without bursting into a fresh set of tears thanks to Rinnian's gentle nature, but you have no doubt it's only a matter of time.

"Hey there kid, don't cry. I promise, we'll either find him or take out the thing that got him. Just... focus on the good times you had with your friend... who is a boy."

A single tear falls from her eyes and she smiles back at Rinnian and nods.
