Isa had followed Rath's gaze towards the paladin. He'd yet to draw his fill of the rooms energy and her presence was a complication he wasn't sure his current control could handle. as she approached he stopped feeding and smiled at her greeting. "No apologies are need gods blessed." He fingered the stones of his pouch, finally finding the only bind rune it the collection and drawing it out. "I offered you this on the trail today as a courtesy. For both our sakes would you please hold it for the time being? while the cheer of the room makes fine food I'm afraid my nature may be a hazard to you. I'll pay for your drink and food in exchange for the favor" he held the proffered stone, barely bigger than the last joint of a mans thumb in an open palm his arm extended to her. If she took it he could continue to feed without worry that she would be harmed, he wouldn't need to mention that with a portion of what he took in being invested in her he'd have to take a bit more from the men in the tavern, though he'd likely have to explain to her later why she felt like she could run for a year with out rest. "My word you'll come to no harm, and nor will anyone else for your accepting of this. After all the Aesir and Vanir have used these same symbols for protection and strength a long time with no ill effect."
