    Private COUNTING UP THE COST ♦ job

    Post by Guest 25th October 2015, 8:54 pm

    Izayuki Hyoujin ♦ Rank C ♦ Black Rose ♦ Glacier God Slayer    

    Another one. Another nightmare had been knocking at her door on that quiet night, ready to aim and haunt its prey yet another again. However, Izayuki knew better. That was why she had somehow forced herself awake before the fear and despair had caught her in its terrible grasp once more. Yet one more night with barely any sleep... just what she needed. Then again, by this time what did it matter anymore? Up again before dawn and breathing out an irritated and unnerved sigh, the young mage forced herself to get ready in her rented dorm room in the guildhall and soon make her way out into the main tavern area where her Black Rose guildmates spent most of their free time.

    By now it was about half an hour after dawn, and Izayuki was trying her best not to think too hard and dwell on the nightmare she had just barely managed to escape. Ordering a glass of ice without liquid as per usual, she sat back on a table bench to observe her surroundings and ready herself mentally for the day, not quite hungry for breakfast just yet. Then again, her 'breakfast' normally took place a little before noon, as early mornings were usually. nonexistent for the wizard.

    Resting quietly on the tabletop, a book in hand and held very close to their face, laid a young man reading its content. His head was hanging off the side of the table, arms slouched over the rest of his body to where the book was held near his face. Though he was likely getting a head rush from laying in that position, Marschal never once moved when Izayuki joined the rest of the guild members. It was practically his job to be wherever with a book on hand, and his guild-mates surrounding his very existence. Hence why, despite him resting on the tabletop, a few of the Black Rose guild members were sitting at the table. They weren't bothered by his presence or the very fact that he hogged the entire table with his height, because they were were used to it. In fact, it was nearly unforeseen not seeing Marschal somewhere in the guild building, reading or do something Marschal-y.

    However, the sound of footsteps caused him to put the book down and lift the upper part of his body up to watch Iza. His demonic eyes studied the female warily, like he hadn't seen her around the guild before, in spite of being only new, himself. Now resting on his elbows, he eyeballed her sitting down at one of the, surprisingly, empty tables in the hall. Disturbing the peaceful talking of his guild-mates, the young male crawled to the edge of the table and got off, wandering over to Izayuki.

    "You look rather. . . hm. . . unprepared, should I say?" Marschy spoke for what would be the first time that someone had not spoken to him first.

    Izayuki Hyoujin ♦ Rank C ♦ Black Rose ♦ Glacier God Slayer

    Elbow on the table and lazily munching icecubes from her glass one at a time, Izayuki almost had completely zoned out, still in thought about her recent nightmare escape. It was not until a voice with an inquiry directed at her managed to break through her mind-wandering. Looking up, pink eyes traced to the side to lock on two unfamiliar orbs fixed on an unnamed face. She had observed him shamelessly resting on the table, but nothing was new to her when it came to the Black Rose guildhall. Besides, she had been too caught up in her own thoughts to even give any odd behavior a sort of opinion or assessment.

    His 'question' was one that was most intriguing and curious. Was she unprepared? How in the world had that been speculated? Then again, when thinking about it.... was she really? What was his definition, or rather, what was he implying? It was a queer question, yes, but Iza was never really one to let anything such as that get to her. Gazing up at him now with her trademark perky and cheery smile that was almost never scarce of her face, the young mage replied to the seemingly slightly older person in a playful and happy tone, as per usual. "Unprepared... so that's what you make of me?"

    Giving a small giggle and now completely snapped out of what was provoking her negative thoughts beforehand, the teen continued in her chipper manner. "The name's Izayuki by the way. Izayuki Hyoujin. You're new, right? I haven't seen you around before. What's your name?" she asked with that casual and well-meaning grin, sincerely curious and happy to get to know her new Black Rose family members.

    He studied her for a moment longer, listening intently to the simple-minded answer that she had given him. Something someone would say to him if that was his first impression of them, but not like he much cared for the answer. Looking down at his hands, twining his fingers together, he contemplated why he really did think of her as unprepared. Maybe it was because she looked tired and restless, like she hadn't gotten a snippet of sleep the night before. Whatever it was, he couldn't have been wrong with the way she had acted in response to what he had said about her. Then again, he felt almost guilty outright saying what he had thought about her; it was almost. . . what was the word. . . judgmental. Per se, he was quite open about his opinions and thoughts, just he never thought about how others would react.

    Blinking his odd eyes, the male glanced back up at Izayuki, staring now wide-eyed at the female as she introduced herself. Oh right, she had asked what his name was, and it would be rude to just leave her hanging for the answer, no? "Uh. . . Oh. Marschal. . . Marschal Leigh, to be exact. No last name as far as I know," he finally answered her. He, honestly, felt stupid for not answering her sooner, like he was acting ignorant and daydreamish knowing him. Marschy let out a sigh and looked away from Iza, staring at the jobs board for just a fleeting moment before looking back. "I tend to keep quiet, that's likely why you hardly see me around, let alone have spoken to me." That was simply to answer her question, even though she had never asked about anything pertaining to his being new here.

    She had simply asked his name.

    Izayuki almost did not notice the silence. Nothing really was ever too awkward for her. However, she did follow his gaze towards the jobs board. Yes, that was something she should be thinking about. Not only would being social help her get her mind off of that depressing subject- her nightmares- it would also help with income. She had a rent to pay for staying at the large guildhall, after all, which did not even cover meals and other essentials. Thankfully ice was free. Yes, that was good.

    Marschal Leigh... so that was his name? It was a splendid name, and naturally one would have thought 'Leigh' to be his last name. He had said otherwise, however, which was fine. It was not like it meant any difference to the young girl. First impressions certainly did confirm his claim about being a quiet one, but hopefully that would not be the case as they got to know one another. After all, Iza was a complete extrovert. She loved talking and randomly changing topics, or just commenting or giving her opinion just because she could. "Well it's nice to meet ya, Marschal~" she replied with a warm and sincere smile on her face and a happy tone lacing her voice, almost as if it were sing-song-y in more ways than one, if that were possible. "Say, ya wanna take a look at the jobs today if you aren't too busy? I have no plans, so maybe we could do one together for fun!"

    Unafraid, daring, and shameless as ever.

    "I'm not sure how useful I will be with jobs," the mage responded to Izayuki in a soft tone. He was extremely new to the whole guild thing; thus, a job was something that he was not familiar with in the least bit. At most, he would be a hindrance to the much more experienced mage, considering he didn't even know how to get a job. Sure, he had checked out the job board before, but that was only to familiarize himself with its information. Even then he wasn't sure about anything, and really didn't want to go on a job if it meant he would screw up. Why? He was such a screw up, himself, that he was surely bound to mess up any job they happened to go on. The last thing that Marschal wanted to do was ruin the reputation of someone who looked to be important to the guild.

    His eyes shifted back to the job board once more, contemplating the actual thought of being able to go on his first job. How possibly hard could it be to complete one? He was D rank, so those had to be the easiest of jobs, right? Wrong. They were likely hard for him, taking into consideration that he had zero job experience at all right now. Marschy was dumb to think that he would be able to so easily complete a job, but who knew, Iza may just help him out. She appeared to be someone who would be willing to help a new mage get around with jobs and the guild, itself. However, he was also wary that maybe she would simply laugh at his failures because he was damn well sure he'd fail the first try. Hell, he didn't even know how to properly control this stupid magic of his; for all he knew, he might injure her if he used it on the job.

    "It'll be my first job," Marschal spoke the thought, his eyebrows scrunching together in worry, lips pulling down into a minute frown. His head shifted back to Izayuki, facial expression relaxing after a few seconds of staring at the younger female. "Are you sure you want to take a job on with the new person? I might fuck things up in the long run."

    Izayuki Hyoujin ♦ Rank C ♦ Black Rose ♦ Glacier God Slayer    

    Jobs were a thing of fun for Izayuki. She enjoyed taking on easy ones around local areas for community service, but the enjoyment mostly came with trying the more dangerous tasks. She was a daredevil, an adventurer; exploration was a much-loved pastime. The ones with the most unforgettable experiences were like gold, and she would not pass one up if possible. She lived in the moment quite nicely, and right now was no different. Popping another ice cube in her mouth, the young mage stood up next to the much taller and slightly older man, that warm smile still lacing her mouth. "Aww c'mon! You'll be fine!" she replied, attempting to shamelessly grab his hand and lead him over to the jobs board with her.

    "First job? In that case, we'll pick an easy and fun one! I doubt you'll fuck things up... if anything, that's my job~" Iza said, smile once again turning more into a daring grin. Whipping around to scan the board with all of the job fliers and papers, pink eyes suddenly locked on one in particular. Audaciously pulling the paper from the board, she read over it silently for a few heartbeats before turning to Marschal and holding it up for him to see. It was a personal request from a woman from Magnolia, seeing to that a mage could escort her husband on a train. Not too hard, and if push came to shove... Izayuki had her tactics. "We're doin' this one.... and ya can't say no unless you have any better ideas," she boldly declared in a happy, innocent manner.

    Marschal was quickly pulled along by the younger, much smaller girl, which caught him slightly off guard by her action. He stumbled after her, trying to gain his footing from being tugged so swiftly, and soon catching his balance shortly after. The mage straightened himself, though it was slightly difficult when one his hands was grasped in Izayuki's own hand. His red and black eyes stared at the hand holding his own, his cheeks reddening ever so partially at the shameless act. A girl had never held his hand before, let alone willingly grabbed it as if that was the most natural thing in the world. This wasn't going to go over well; he was trapped and unable to escape her grasp because he was such a weakling.


    So, he wasn't much a weakling, what with his jock like build, but still, it felt strange to be pulled along by Iza. His eyes shifted from hand soon after, landing on the jobs board, with little attention to what the mage was saying to him. A shiver ran down his spine, which caused him to look back at Izayuki and reign in his hearing to listen to her. Something about a job, and then the paper was shoved into his face for him to read, him quickly glancing over it. This job was not something that he could do. There was no way that he would be able to escort a reluctant man on a train. If the man didn't want to go, why should he be forced to? Just let him get fired from his job for God's sake.

    "No," was the first word that escaped his mouth, right after Izayuki had said no would not be an answer. "There is no way that I can escort that guy! I am not built to be an escort! My build is much more alluding than it is real. I am not that strong. I cannot escort him. I refuse to."

    No? He had actually dared to say no to her? Especially right when she had specifically told him not to...
    Even if her tone rarely seemed too solemn with it's playful sound woven into her voice, this was still unacceptable. But would Izayuki react negatively? No. Of course not. If anything, this guy had just revealed a weakness of sorts- hesitation. It was something that she could prey on, play, and toy with. Had he no self-esteem? She would find out.

    Then again, in all seriousness, this job was being overestimated by the tall individual. "Sheesh, it ain't that hard of a task," she said in a flat, daring, sarcastic, but harmless tone, a small cheeky grin now being distinct on her facial features. "This job's not about power. Our worst enemy seems to be the poor fellow who is afraid of trains. Thankfully, I think I know how to remedy that... but doing it alone is no fun. So c'mon~! It can't be that bad. Better to get some jewel out of helping someone not lose their job, hm?"

    This time her tone was innocent and sweet as she once again shamelessly went for Marschal's hand, having no idea or concept of what some people could think of that. "Besides, have you ever been to Magnolia? The place is beautiful~"

    Marschal stayed straight-faced as Izayuki took in what he said, though he wasn't able to get a good read on her. Seeing as she was awfully quiet for a moment before she finally responded to him, he wasn't sure what to make of the situation. At one point, he thought she was going to try to him, whereas, at another point, he thought she was simply going to scold him. So, he sucked in a deep breath and waited, soon relieved when all she did was speak to him in a slightly changed tone. Not that it bothered him in the least, she was tiny compared to him, and he could just sit on her if need be. No, not that he would go as far as to sit on here; he was not one for violent tendency like Iza looked ready to be. He took on the more logical aspect, the "brains beats bronze" theme; kill the enemy with logic rather than violence.

    "Violence is not the answer if that's what your remedy to the situation is," the mage stated in a harsh voice. "A job like this takes wits over bronze. I'd rather get the guy in one piece to his work than in pieces. I'm pretty sure that's not what the wife wants anyway. So, I'll take the job under one condition: that you don't use violence." That was the only thing he could think of as a compromise, since he couldn't quite trust the strange female yet. "I want nothing to do with him though. I'll sit next to him, but I will not touch or speak with him." Partially, that was a lie; at some point in time, he would be forced to speak with the guy, he was certain of that. For him, jobs were no escape from chatting with people, unless he wanted to go on one hundred year journey, which he couldn't yet.

    Magnolia? No, he hadn't been to Magnolia before. He actually hadn't ever left the little Silver Moon Island that this guild was on. His home village was actually not that far from the guild either, which was the main reason why he joined this guild. "Travelling never really interested me, so I haven't gone to Magnolia and have no intentions of doing so. It might be beautiful as you say it is, but I don't really care for just how beautiful the place as long as it isn't crowded." Marschy had a thing with touching people. He didn't like touching them, and always feels extremely uncomfortable if someone brushes against him. Which was another reason why he wasn't all the comfortable with Izayuki holding onto his hand like a lost, little girl. Speaking of that, her and grabbing hands something that he wasn't going to enjoy if they hung out more often after this.

    Izayuki Hyoujin ♦ Rank C ♦ Black Rose ♦ Glacier God Slayer    

    His reply was most interesting and amusing to the slightly younger and much shorter mage. Violence? He assumed she was going to get violent? It was not too surprising, she had to admit. However, the very idea said aloud made Izayuki give a sincere and characteristic laugh. "Violence? Well I suppose that's one way to do it...." she said, trailing off with a bit of a suggestive tone. It would work. She knew how to intimidate and use force quite well in such situations. However, this was not a case where she would, no matter how fun it seemed. "Unfortunately, as fun as that sounds, that was not exactly what I had in mind~" Iza concluded, again pausing for a minute before continuing.

    He did not like crowds? That was understandable as well. Iza knew plenty of people who disliked large groups of people in general. "Freaking introverts" was a term said in a way, stolen from a friend of her's. Izayuki was a complete extrovert. She did not mind being around any amount of people. The minimum number she would need with her was one other than herself. Zero seemed to be the loneliest number, after all. "That guy won't be any trouble... we'll make him enjoy the ride, even. As for getting to Magnolia, have you ever seen the Black Rose ships?" the young mage said, trying to lead her new comrade to the outside of the guildhall.

    "If that is not what you planned, then what it is that you planned?" inquired Marschal in a square tone. One eyebrow was cocked upward, indicating that he was genuinely curious to know what Izayuki had in mind for the mission. Normally, he figured the automatic, go-to action was to be violent with the man, especially if they couldn't deal with him civilly. Not many knew how to deal with people in a civil manner; it was always "fight, fight, fight!" or "beat 'em down!" It was never "let's talk this out", like how Marschal would have done so with the man, or at least have tried to. It was strange to think that, maybe, Iza wasn't the violent type that he thought she was going to be from the start. That bored look on her face when he first met her clearly indicated to him that she was a violent type, but he guessed he was wrong.

    "I doubt you can make someone enjoy something that they are absolutely terrified of doing," Marschy retorted apprehensively. "It's physically demeaning to force someone into doing something they don't want to do, considering you might embarrass them." The frown was apparent on his face again as he was led toward the ships of Black Rose; ships he had never seen. "No, ships don't interest me." Simple as that. Ships didn't interest him and never have. His father had been a fisherman, so the smell of the salty water and the dead fish always made him sick to his stomach. Now that he thought about it, it wasn't such a great idea to be going on a ship if he knew the smells intoxicated him. Not necessarily drunkenness intoxication, but ill intoxication; the nausea was something he couldn't handle.

    Izayuki Hyoujin ♦ Rank C ♦ Black Rose ♦ Glacier God Slayer    

    "Aww, you really want me to spoil what I plan to do? That's no fun..." Izayuki said with a mock childish pouting face, puffing her cheeks and lower lip in feigned annoyance before throwing on that bright smile and teasing grin again. What she had planned was not exactly violence. While it could escalate to that depending on the difficulty of their client, she hoped that it would be mostly smooth travels. Marschal said that he doubted they could make someone enjoy something they were terrified of doing. Well, she had her ways. It would not be too hard. "There's no need for us to get physical though. This'll be a piece of cake~"

    They soon reached the shipyards which held Black Rose's unique plant-based vessels. At hearing her new comrade being pessimistic yet again, Izayuki stopped in her tracks and turned to face him. "Ships don't interest ya, hm? In that case how'd you prefer to travel? By flying? Swimming? Riding in or on something? Go ahead and state your preferences," the young mage ordered with a bit of playfulness once more in her voice and smile. What was she implying or what did she plan to do? Marschal would soon find out.

    His facial expression relaxed and he looked away from Izayuki, not having anything else to say to her as she spoke. The conversation at hand was starting to bore him and he wanted to do something else, but he couldn't really when he was trapped by her. No, she wanted to go on ships and on the waving waters, whereas he wanted to stick to the land and not do the job. He was purposefully trying to get her to not take him on the ships because he didn't want to get seasick like he knew he would. "Just. . . whatever," he muttered, ultimately ending the conversation at that point. Izayuki could try to start up the conversation again, but he likely wouldn't respond to her or even think on it. Marschal so badly wanted to do something else; he just wasn't interested in the job anymore like she was.

    "I don't really are how we get there, just. . . not by ship, please. . . anything but going on the ships," he stated. He wanted to throw up thinking about it, sitting on the ship with the rocking motions and expansive blue waters. Why does it have to be overseas he thought, eyebrows knitting together as he concentrated on his own thought. "You know what. . . I give up, just do whatever you want, I don't really care anymore. Let's just get this over with." Marschy coughed a bit, twitched his ears and looked back at her, face hardened by a blank expression as he waited.

    Izayuki Hyoujin ♦ Rank C ♦ Black Rose ♦ Glacier God Slayer    

    That was always the hard and more tedious part of doing jobs in Black Rose. They basically owned the country and nation of Bosco, and any jobs in Fiore required a good deal of travel to reach the destination of work. Marschal seemed to be getting irritated and bored as their conversation went on, however, and he shut down altogether. That was no way to be- especially in front of Izayuki. She understood that he did not want to go by ship, but at least he conceded some to her, even if it was in a negative way. Then again, she always won. Especially with Jin and Elyx, but in any case, always. This guy was no exception, was he?

    Instead of getting flustered, as she normally would have with her companion so quickly and abruptly shutting down, Izayuki pulled a devious and sly grin of sorts as she gazed up at the taller teen, arms crossed. "I see.... in that case...." the girl trailed off as a small crimson shine came into her eyes and in a matter of a few heartbeats, she completely changed her form. A quick light seemed to engulf Iza which transformed her human shape into that of a larger-medium sized serpentine creature. By the time the light broke away, there was a pearl-colored eastern dragon standing there with those familiar pink eyes and that playful smile. Without saying a word, the mythical creature leaped up in the air a few meters and attempted to grab onto the cat-eared boy with her claws. If that were successful, she would fly high into the air before carefully trying to move Marschal from her grasp to her back, neck, and shoulder area for proper riding. They would continue to fly over the seas and to Fiore, only going into land when the town of Magnolia came into sight.

    Marschal's head snapped in her direction as her sentence trailed off, not one for liking surprises as she was making. His red and black eyes steadily stared at her as a crimson aura shrouded her eyes and a light enveloped her. No longer was he staring at that short, annoying girl, but rather a very lanky, very large Eastern dragon. He frowned a tiny bit, wondering exactly what it was that Izayuki had in mind by transforming into an Eastern dragon. When she snatched him up in her claws however, he kept himself from letting out a gruff sound of terror. Not only was he taken off guard, but he wasn't a big fan of being taken to heights without a good reason. No, he wasn't scared of heights, he just didn't like being surprised by such things, and this happened to be one of them.

    Plopped onto the withers of the dragon—well, Izayuki—Marschal grasped onto a decent sized chunk of her mane to hold on. "I don't see how this is any better of a choice than the ships," Marschal inherently pouted at Izayuki. It was cold up in the air, especially since they were flying at high speeds for a dragon, and no blanket. Plus, she was miserably uncomfortable to sit on; it was a wonder to him how someone could ride a dragon. Then again, he didn't know of anyone who could ride a dragon, so he was probably the first to technically sit on one. He kept his mouth shut after his fiasco though, not wanting to say anymore and potentially anger Izayuki. Not like he hadn't already as far as he knew, she was probably just tolerating him now, proven that he was a nuisance.

    Magnolia was well in sight by now, and despite Marschal's overall displease with the situation and the idea of riding a dragon, Iza had very much enjoyed the flight. She found flying chances rather rare, and did not mind the excuse of acting as transport just for the ability to travel the skies. Her comrade's complaining also did not faze her too much. He could be taken as annoying, yes, but that was not exactly how Iza perceived him. She could not put her finger on it, but he was a generally likeable person to her despite his pessimism. If anything, he was at least a bit amusing.

    Gracefully landing, Izayuki waited for Marschal to get off before effortlessly transforming back to her human form. They were in Magnolia now, and their client would be waiting near the train station. Not having much to say, with just that general cheerful smile on her face, the teen girl made her way through the city towards where she remembered the station was. Her tall companion was either with her, or if he decided to be stubborn again, was being pulled along by her hand. When they finally reached the station, there the couple was... An middle-ages lady with a kind but fretful expression and her husband who had need of riding the train, a similarly-aged man with glasses, a nice suit, and an air of worry.


    Ooc: Very rushed and on mobile, sorry. Feel free to help lead the job along and play the NPCs. All up to you. ^^

    Marschal had quieted down at this time, staring down at the scales covering Izayuki's body, tempted to pick at them out of boredom. He was done with the arguing and complaining because he was beginning to see himself more as a nuisance than anything else. The more he thought about it, the more he realized he probably wouldn't be liked by Iza if he continued his pessimism. So, he had shut himself up and waited until they had reached the ground of Magnolia, near the train station. No, he hadn't been to Magnolia, he had been to Rose Garden though, so that he was able to get his passport for traveling. Other than that, he hadn't gone anywhere else that would have resorted him into using a taxi cab or a ship to get to. At least traveling by air hadn't been so bad, other than the inkling that Izayuki would purposefully drop down quickly to scare the shit out of him.

    He slid off her and waited for her to shift back into her human form and grab his hand to pull him along. By now, he had gotten used to her just holding his hand, so he just let her grab it and carried on with the mission. Eventually, they came to an older looking female and a gangling looking male with glasses and pretty much a nerd. "I suppose you're the ones we're doing this mission for?" Marschal inquired in a hard tone toward the couple. Marschy wasn't necessarily displeased by it all, he simply wanted to get it done and over with, so he could go back home. It was a waste to be here in Magnolia if he was not able to sight-see the place and be forced on a train with some nitwit.

    Izayuki Hyoujin ♦ Rank C ♦ Black Rose ♦ Glacier God Slayer    

    The wife eagerly nodded as the strange-looking man addressed them. He was an odd fellow- extremely tall with black hair topped with cat ears! This was what they got for sending in the job request to a magical guild, right? She could not complain too much. ”Yes, I needed to hire a mage to escort my husband on the train to a meeting of his that is early tomorrow. You all should arrive at the destination by evening, and I have five-hundred jewels to pay you. Up front, mind you, so please do your best and treat my husband kindly,” the middle-aged woman said. She was a kind, fretful lady who simply wanted her husband to keep his job.

    ”Of course~” Iza began, that familiar perky smile on her face. She had enjoyed Marschal’s company during their flight. He seemed to be more of a mellow dude and pessimist, but there was nothing too wrong with that was there? If anything, he would be fun to tease in the future if she was lucky enough not to rub him the wrong way with her shameless and extroverted behavior. ”Let’s get going, shall we?” she asked, gazing at the man. He was hesitant to move at first, but a sharp glance from his wife sent him following Izayuki as she made her way towards the train.

    ”I’m not boarding…. I don’t care if I lose my job…. Trains are not my thing. I don’t care if you two were paid and hired,” he said indignantly when safely out of sight from his wife, coming to a pause.
    Iza paused for a moment, glancing back at the man and seemingly giving a hopeless sigh with a serious and understanding expression for once. ”Ah, fine. I guess we can’t force you. The exit is this way…,” she said in a rather soft manner, gesturing towards a door. Little did anyone know she had cast an illusion on the vicinity. She tried to subtly meet her companion, Marschal’s eyes and give a small wink as they moved towards the “exit”. That fake exit, however, was actually the train itself, ready for its final boarding.

    His eyes narrowed as he listened to the woman, not in a judging way, but more of a curious, speculating way. He nodded at her request, and turned to look at the nerdy-looking man, who he could easily pick up if he tried now that he glanced him over. The man appeared to be so wimpy that it literally would be no issue to just grab him and go on the train without struggle. However, grabbing him would possibly cause him injury and he was specifically told by the wife that she did not want him injured. So, Marschal frowned and looked to Iza, wondering what she had planned to get the man on the train without injury. Knowing her though, she would probably want to do exactly what he had just thought, grab the man and just go. No strings attached, just hike him up into his arms and run onto the train quick enough that the man would not have time to think.

    "All right," Marschy rumbled lowly, turning away from the woman to board the train with Izayuki. The man, on the other hand, was going to be much more of a troublesome being than what he wanted him to be. Of course, that was to be expected from him, considering the nerd with glasses had a huge fear of trains. Instead of boarding the train as instructed by his unbeknownst half-sister, he paused and stared at the guy. His red irises dilated harshly from the bright sunlight and a frown creased his lips again, waiting for him to get on. Not that he expected him to get on at all, but rather start trying to deter Izayuki and him from getting him on the train. That was not going to happen in the least bit, so Marschy let out a sigh and glanced toward the pink-eyed girl.

    "Why can't you just get on the fucking train? What in Sam Hill are you terrified over a train for? The worst that could happen is it breaks down and we're stuck sitting on the train until they're able to fix it. If you don't get on that goddamn train, I swear to the almighty fucking god above us that I will pick your ass up and lock you on that train. You will be forced to go on your own if you don't get on right this instance. So, you get through that goddamn train door before you have something comin' to ya. You fucking understand me now?" Marschal cleared his throat after the cuss out, picking at his collar and fixing it before relaxing again and waiting. He didn't quite care about Iza's little exit illusion, as far as he was concerned, the man was not going to go through the door; he looked too smart to.

    Izayuki Hyoujin ♦ Rank C ♦ Black Rose ♦ Glacier God Slayer

    The man did not follow Izayuki right away, remaining firm. Did he suspect a trick? Had he caught the wink she had sent Marschal’s way? In any case, this would be troublesome. The following event, however- the cat-eared boy telling the man off- was something rather intriguing to the pink-haired mage. The man seemed to be more scared of her comrade than of the train he was being prepared to board for the present moment. This was most certainly getting interesting!

    For the sake of being herself and potentially making the mood and atmosphere a bit lighter despite Marschal cussing the man out, Izayuki used her Bakedanuki illusions to make a medium-sized tub of popcorn appear in her arms. Taking a piece of the false popcorn out of the tub, the yokai popped a piece in her mouth and chewed while an audible munching was heard. Ah, mirages could be so fun. While the popcorn would not fill her up and she could not taste it, the mind perception of it was quite realistic. After standing there and nomming on her artificial popcorn for a few moments as her companion wrapped up his speech, Izayuki walked up behind the man and began gently pushing the back of his shoulders to move forward towards the train, the illusion now off. ”C’mon now! It ain’t so bad, as Marschal here said~” the young mage said, not too surprised to find resistance against her palm as the man remained firm in his stance, refusing to budge. Sheesh, what a pain.

    Marschal cracked his knuckles, which sounded painful, but to him was much more of a relief than it was an issue. He cocked an eyebrow at the now scared man, as if intimidation would work to get the scrawny onto the train. Besides, they didn't have long before the train would take off without them and that's exactly what the guy was trying to do. The working man was attempting to stall them long enough, so that the train would take off and they'd be stuck. Well, if that did happen, hopefully, Izayuki wouldn't mind taking them for a ride to the guy's work as an easier alternative. If he was this deathly afraid of trains, how afraid would he be riding by ship or by "plane" was Marschy's next question. Was he only terrified of trains or was he terrified of all kinds of transportation, like that of a dragon slayer.

    With the frown still apparent on his features, Marschal waited as Iza pushed the man in his back and he did not budge. Frustrated already by him, he was not going to wait for Izayuki to roughly shove him into the train an injure him. Instead, the young mage, stood his ground, lifted the man into his arms--well, more into a bear hug, pinning his arms against him-- and tossed him on the train. After that, the tall male boarded after, grabbed the guy again and forced him down into a seat that was empty and made just waiting for the three of them. Marschy crossed his arms at this point and waited for the female to join them, keeping a close eye on the man.

    "You are going to sit here and enjoy this ride with us or I will sit on you if you try to escape," he threatened him. Now, thanks to his build, Marschal was not a light man, made mostly of muscle and power, so it would be hard to get out from under him.

    Izayuki Hyoujin ♦ Rank C ♦ Black Rose ♦ Glacier God Slayer

    The show continued as Marschal’s threats towards the man became actions. About to continue nomming on her popcorn as if in deep interested suspense, Izayuki felt the resisted pressure against her hand lighten as her comrade seemingly hugged the man, picked him up with ease, and tossed him into the train. It was quite an entertaining display of action to watch. The man seemed panicked, as one naturally would be if picked up and thrown to the interior of a locomotive, but it was great comedy and amusement for the young mage who had just about finished eating her fake popcorn as she followed them in.

    Once the man had been forcefully seated by the tall mage and threatened verbally, Iza once again raised her brows in both mild surprise and amusement at the action promised if escape was attempted. Marschal would… sit on him? She could almost laugh out loud while envisioning that scene, and as tempting as it was to let it possibly happen, the young Glacier God Slayer had other outcomes in mind that may or may not be less entertaining, unfortunately. Grinning regardless, Izayuki simply took her seat on one side of the man before gazing at the ground near his feet. Using her Glacial Omnipotence ability, she easily froze the man’s feet to the ground with just her mind. A dark ice could be seen around his feet and ankles, and while it would not hurt or freeze him, he would be stuck in place. ”It’s either this ‘safety measure’, or Marschal here could sit on ya~”

    "Now, now. I think a few good threats would keep this man in order," Marschal stated in a sympathetic manner. He placed an arm comfortably around the man's shoulders without a care in the world, and stared through the opposite train window. Crossing a leg over the other, he would proceed to wait until the train ride was over, so he would not have to deal with this guy again. It was easy to lift him up and place him on the train, but what the hell would happen after the train stopped at the place? The man better enjoy their company while it lasted because he would be on his own in getting back his wife and home. Marschy yawned and glanced back over at Izayuki, wondering what he could say to her, that way the silence would not overpower them. The last thing he wanted was for an awkward train ride to the man's destination; flicking an ear, however, he proceeded to remain silent.

    The mage kept silent for a few long minutes, simply staring out the train window and watching as the scenery slipped by. It was at that point that he became curious to know more about Izayuki and why she had chosen Black Rose as her home. Running his free hand through his long, black hair and flicking it away, he let his red irises land back on Iza. "So," the young man began, now fully looking at the year-young glacier god slayer. "Wanna tell me more about yourself? I figure I'd exchange that information for more about myself as well." Now began the awkward silence, in which he would have to wait for an answer and feel embarrassed for even asking. Why Marschal did such things to himself was beyond comprehension for even himself, and the last thing he cared to know the answer to.

    The man gave a small whimper of sorts but made no further objections as he was stuck in place to the train and the middle of a beginning conversation. He would simply try to block out the fact that he was in a moving locomotive and placed right in between two psychotic mages.
    Izayuki, on the other hand, had made herself quite comfortable on the bench with the three of them. She had never ridden many trains, so this was a rare, fun, and delightful opportunity! A few good threats, as her companion has put it, seemed to have done the trick with the man. Between more ice or being sat on, he became rather quiet and much more... How to put it... Submissive? That would work.

    As Marschal started conversation, however, that familiar smile brightened once again as she gave a nod. "That works... What do you want to know about me? I, for one, am curious as to what you are.... Not every 'human' has ears like that~" she mused, contemplating ideas and guesses of just what the tall boy was. She herself was not quite human... At all. But that was always something that she was not too fond of discussing. With knowledge of the discrimination and hate it could receive, plus her fear of rejection, Iza had kept the topic rather hushed. However, Marschy might just be one to share more than a few things with her- or so she could hope. Iza knew better than to get her hopes up too high. Simply, she would prod the conversation on casually. Awkward silence was nonexistent for her.
