Molmat reaches to refill Qinn's mug, then eyes the rest of the group somewhat suspiciously.  After a moment he says, "So this isn't just drunken chatter, you actually want to try and find the girl? "  He looks from Grobbitt to Jeremiah and the at Quinn, then takes in the rest of the group.  "Well alright, but don't keep them from their work, they need to be ready for the dinner rush."

He then indicates the service window to the right of the bar.  "You may speak to them through the window. But mind you keep your voices down, I don't want you spooking the rest of the customers."

Here is a map of the White Wake Inn,  Unfortunately, due to posting limits I have had to split the map in half,  This half shows the bar and kitchen area.  To the fart right, but not pictured,  is a wide staircase leading to the rooms upstairs.

The bartender grabs a mug and fills it with beer.  As he does so, the door opens and a dapper young man enters (Abdullah), looking around to get a sense of the place. 

Abdullah is dressed like he would be more fit hanging out with the senator's daughter than to be visiting a dive like this; a silken blouse, an embroidered wastecoat, shoes that are more decorative than utilitarian. He stands just over 5 feet tall, is slight in build, clean shaven, with long blonde hair, a curl in the center of his forehead, as befit the youth of today.

Not seeming to care about the filth of the bar, he takes a seat at the center, and listens quietly.

Quinn

wobbles over with Jeremiah to listen to the kitchen slaves’  stories. He gives every appearance of being just another idle drunkard, though he is actually listening intently.

Molmat smiles vigorously and give a slight bow to Abdullah and fetches him the pitcher of mead and an actual  glass as opposed to the earhtenware that most are drinking from.  then He asks, "Do you need more glasses?"

As Jeremiah approaches the window a slave looks up a bit surprised and says, "What you order?"

When he begins to ask about the rats she quickly responds, "Oh rats, very nasty.  Steal food and bite."

The slave speaks poor common and with a very heavy accent, making questioning her slow and fragmented.  When Jeremiah asks about the missing girl she exclaims, "Oh girl gone very bad, very sad!"

This line of questioning of the slave seems to have come to a bit of a statement, you are not gaining any information and it is difficult to tell if this is due to communication problems or the slave's unwillingness to answer.

Bug
thinks aloud - but in a low voice:

"The senator's daughter was dressed in red.
If she left the inn with or after all the guests,
she would have been spotted.
So she was abducted through the kitchen;
via the back door or the cellar - if there is any ..."

 He adds: "If she was abducted at all."

Quinn

watches the slaves knead the bread with great interest. It’s almost hypnotic... probably not a useful way to spend his time. Any yet, he can’t look away.

Grobbit

He's doing what he normally does in this type of bar-situation.... Drinks slowly, Observes quickly... and listens carefully.

He has allies.. but he suspect that we three are not the only ones interested in the girls disappearance. He doesn't feel the need to dislodge himself from his perch just yet.

It just wouldn't do to swarm those who might be witnesses... but he'll observe those who seem to be taking interest in the activities of Bug and Jeremiah..

sits thoughtfully on his chair (at the table with Grobbit).
He takes another nip of his beer and observes Jeremiah at the kitchen window.

Point of clarification--Grobbitt sits at the bar along with Abdullah and Bug (I assume) and Jeremiah and Quinn are at the serving window.


Other than you  the other patrons were here when you arrived.  The pirates do not seem to care about much other than drinking and singing, which is getting worse.  The students also do not seem too interested in your efforts as most seem excited about the upcoming festival.  The only two that are expressing much interest in you are the bouncer and the troll--but they are also eyeing up the pirates regularly.
