   Hugo does as he is told. The back door is open and he is searching for any possible witnesses to this embarassing situation.

Ron flashes a disbelieving glance at his traitorous right hand and tosses the whisk back onto the table. Mellie, meanwhile starts closing in from behind him with the broom.

Outside, all is relatively quiet; people keep passing by on Allenby Road, buy no one is paying the inn's delivery entrance any attention.

Josie keeps her eyes on the rat while she's trying to get closer. Holding the broom in front of her to block it from running the wrong way or to whack the vermin with it when it does.

   "Chase it outside," Hugo suggests, holding the back door open, ready to slam it shut once the pest has made its exit.

Mellie nods at Josie, signalling the advance and tells Ron: "Get the other door, and make sure no one comes in." With no other way to turn, the creature dashes for the exit and is outside in no time. As Hugo slams the door behind it, the last thing he seems to see - it's only a flash - is two black shapes in the alley, standing nose to nose as if in greeting.

Inside, Mellie tells Josie:
"Have a look in the pantry, love, see what damage it's done. And do clean up if it left us any presents."

   "How the hell did that bugger get inside? Hugo wanders as he heads back to his place in the pub.

Josie walks into the pantry, still holding the broom thinking it might be usefull. She starts on her right hand side, checking behind and underneath everything that's on the floor. Slowly she works her way around the room, giving it a quick sweep while she's at it.

Please see this post on rolling dice. For now, don't bother re-rolling, we'll proceed with 2 Successes rolled. [EDIT: or 1 Success rolled, amounts to the same]

Having grown up on the out- and underside of a lot of things, you are no stranger to animals, nor to rats in particular. You take your time to examine the stock and exposing nooks and crannies between the goods. Strangely, you find not a single dropping, nor is there evidence of anything being nibbled on. This doesn't add up at all, given the fact that the little critter should have been trapped in there for a decent amount of time.

Josie closes the pantry door behind her and steps into the kitchen with a puzzeled look on her face. How could the animal have gotten in and not have touched anything? Still thinking about it, she opens the backdoor and looks out into the alley.

At first you see nothing, but then the culprit comes scurrying out of the stables, making a dash towards the street as if fleeing from your presence.

Josie looks around the kitchen. Doing dishes can wait and if she's not needed she might step outside and check the stables.

With a lot of the inn's current guests having come by train or airship - they are Engineers after all, or at least closely related to them - the stables are relatively empty. Luckily you can always rely on Atlas, the Fines' cart donkey, to welcome you with a loud off-kilter bray. All that's accompanying him at the moment are a rather dishevelled looking mare and a gigantic cart horse. All are happily chewing away at whatever they can curl their lips around and yank free.

Pretending to just have stepped outside to have a rest and pad the horses, Josie has a quick look around the stable. If there's nothing out of the ordinary she has to go back inside to start the endless job of doing the dishes
