Splinter visiting Shadow.

"Home again, home again."

Sallie steps out from her pantry, Splinter following behind. Everything is where she left it, but Sallie does have to admit - she could have sworn it was earlier in the afternoon when she left.

"Excuse me for a second -- " Sallie walks to the endtable by the sliding patio door, where Skouris usually leaves any notes or status updates taken care of while Sallie is otherwise unavailable. A datapad has been left there, which is odd. Why so fancy?

Sallie picks it up, flicking it on with one thumb.




"Oh this cannot be happening. I just got here."

The further into the house Splinter moves, the greater the distance between he and Sallie becomes. There's just so much to see in this new environment.

"Yes, of course," he says absently, his attention drawn instinctively to the shelving and the books and pictures that are displayed there.

That is, of course, until Sallie speaks again.
"What is the matter?" he asks turning away from the framed photographs.

Splinter shifts, turning so that he's now facing her. Included in this motion is the re-positioning of the walking stick in his hands. It clicks ever so slightly against the hardwood floor.

"Perhaps it might be prudent for us to leave."

He raises a hand cutting her off.

"There is no need to apologize. Please, take all of the time that you need. I am more than capable of amusing myself.

I will try not to break anything," he says nodding towards the vid screen.

He was going to make use of the recliner and possibly snag a book to flip through, but the moment she mentions Soaps...well that just goes right out the window, doesn't it.

"I would not have been able to read them anyhow," he says as he goes for the remote control.

Splinter is so engrossed with his program that he misses the knock completely. He almost missed the shouting too, but hearing Sallie's full name catches his attention.

April told him something once, with regards to the use of full names.
Every kid knows a full name serves one purpose: to let them know when they're really in trouble.

This surprised Splinter when he heard it because it had always been his custom to use his sons' full names at all times, but he couldn't help but see the truth to April's words when she scolded them using their full names.

So when Splinter hears the man at the door already scolding a grown woman the way one would a mischievous child...it rankles him.

He turns off the vid screen, and rolls to his feet, making sure to bring his walking stick along for the journey.

Splinter listens, waiting for the very second the man on the other side of the door is likely to knock again, it is then that he opens the door.

Well that's a shame, Splinter was half expecting the other man to scream in terror. Alas, yet another downside to being human instead of a giant anthropomorphic mutant rat.

Splinter returns the hand that had opened the door to his walking stick.

"No," he says quite calmly, but firm.

"Hamato Splinter," he says before bowing ever so slightly...though he never does lower his eyes to Beau. "And when I say No, I mean that you will not be speaking with Sallie today. Nor ever again."

Beau's attempt to cross the threshold is met with the whoosh and crack of a walking stick that moves to block his path.

It is, in fact, the only thing that moves.
Splinter stays exactly where he is.

"No. That is not a thing that will be happening."

"Friend," he says simply. The walking stick doesn't budge, and neither does the man holding it.

"You are not welcome here, and it would be inhospitable for me, as a guest, to allow you to enter without invitation. I will inform her that you stopped by, and that any further communication will arrive via correspondence.

Do not let me detain you further."

There might just be the smallest bit of a self-satisfied smirk at Beau's backstep.

Splinter is not normally the sort of man who allows himself to be affected by petty insult. It's all a distraction, after all. A verbal attempt to catch one off his guard. However, he knows what a powerful role reputation plays here on Shadow and so cannot in good conscience allow such a slight to go unanswered.

Also...he might just be the slightest bit overprotective with regards to Sallie.
You know, for reasons.

"The only sadness to be found in this situation are your repeated attempts to insist upon your relevance here. I assure you that Sallie is quite fine, and that my speaking to you is solely an effort on my part to ensure that our afternoon continues to be a pleasant one."

The walking stick swings back to its original position, the point making a audible click when it comes back into contact with the floor.

"By all means, Mister Reynolds, do feel free to submit your lucrative business proposition to her in writing at some later date."

Splinter doesn't turn when Sallie re-enters the house. He never breaks eye contact with Beau. His tone, however, shifts dramatically. Where as before it was indifferent bordering on razor sharp, now it is warm and friendly.

"Oh, Hello Sallie. Mister Reynolds was just leaving."

Sallie knows about animals. She knows how dangerous they can be when they stand perfectly still.

Splinter doesn't laugh, no matter how much he might want to. He does, however, visibly relax.

"There is apparently a lucrative business deal he wishes to speak with you about," he says turning to look at her. "I would advise against taking it."

"Curiosity."

And so he could size him up appropriately, but he's not going to admit to that outright.
