“Its Ean,” the ordinary boy replied. “Ean Vanguard.” Layhava seemed to be nervous around Sola. It was understandable considering what just happened, even if Sola’s intentions were good. Ean figured it was best to just ignore it. They’d get along better eventually if it mattered any. Or she’d forget him like mostly everyone else does and that would be the extent of any relationship these two would have.
“We’re going to my favorite restaurant in town. Well, aside from what’s in Lamia scales guild hall at least,” Ean replied, giving away his affiliation with the guild, although he wasn’t really hiding anything. He was just avoiding the guild right now because Zuo was there at the moment and their master was a little, eccentric, when it came to training and he seemed fixated on training Ean.
She skipped ahead pretty quickly. Ean didn’t worry too much about keeping up if she was in sight. Ean just hoped Layhava didn’t lose sight of the invisible man. She eventually sat on a bench to wait for him. Fortunately for him, just across from the place they were going to. She did get a little too far and Ean almost lost her. “We’re here,” Ean said, appearing behind the bench out of nowhere, pointing directly across the street to the restaurant named seagull’s tavern. “There a few drunken sailors here but the foods good,” Ean told her as he walked into the tavern, assuming Layhava was following.
Ean went straight to the bar. “Excuse me, Mr. Anders,” Ean said to the barkeeper there who immediately jumped with a surprise, before letting out a sigh of relief it was only Ean. “Dang it Ean, you got to stop doing that whole disappearing act,” he said. “The usual?”
“I just walked up to the bar,” Ean said. It’s exactly what he did. Nothing special it’s just nobody noticed him come up. “And whatever the young miss will have as well,” Ean told the barkeeper as he gave a thump point over his shoulder to the girl.
“Huh?” Mr. Anders looked over to Layhava and let out a chuckle. “Oh so you finally got a girl to pay attention to you eh, Vanguard?” Mr. Anders joked as he let out a laugh.
“It’s not like that. I just bumped her and knocked her over so I’m offering her lunch,” Ean explained himself to his old friend, with a straight face and much calmer than a normal person would have explained it. Although she was also violated by Sola, Ean thought, deciding to leave that part out. If it wasn’t for his job and how frequently Ean was here, Mr. Anders would probably forget Ean to.
“Haha! So she’s just like the rest of us, looked right through you!” Mr. Anders laughed another joke. “Hey miss,” Mr. Anders turned his attention to miss Akagi, “Did you know, there’s a rumor that if you try and touch him your hand will go right through him.” Mr. Anders joked with a point towards Ean.
