Vargas couldn't help but to smile to himself as the girl tried to cover up her small lie; he didn't mind, and he found it kind of cute. That, much to her dismay, was probably something a kid would do if he had been caught lying. However, the Devil's Arms user would simply ignore it and smile at her. -Okay, okay, I guess I'll believe you -the white haired male playfully stated, dropping the matter. Instead, they went on to talking about work; specifically, the work mages tended to do. The Seig's explanation of what he had been doing made her comment on him having everything planned out.
Vargas let out a chuckle and made a negation with his right hand. -Nothing furthest from reality. Thing is, when I got to Hargeon, I didn't know what to do. Heck, even now I'm still unsure of how Guilds even work. However, it was either doing something or starving, so I figured I could go about doing some jobs, and then try to get particular clients on my own. Dunno, it occured to me and it seemed to be a good idea -he scratched the back of his head.
That didn't mean he had everything planned.
-Plus, I'd rather take some risks and live surprising myself everyday than lead a boring as heck life. Hell, that's one of the reasons why coming here was appealing. A world totally different to what I was used to... that's the best. And that's what you're looking for, ain't you, Kira?
When they talked about jobs, she also mentioned that they could be dangerous. -Nah, when you're starting there's actually a lot you can do without fighting. One time, I got hired to, and I want you to open your mouth and stare at me in awe, tell a little girl her goldfish had died. Yes, that's job material alright -he commented, remembering that time. He hadn't even taken 5 minutes with that stupid request, and he couldn't remember whether he had gotten payed or not for doing so. Probably not.
-Though the jobs that pay best are usually the most dangerous ones, so yeah. If you want to get enough money to live comfortably without becoming a mage for chores, you'll have to get your hands dirty -he finished explaining. His best payed job was when he saved Beanstalk Village from that dark wizard cursing their crops. He had taken quite the beating that one time, but it had been worth it. Plus, the battle had been amazingly entertaining.
As she questioned him about Asag, Vargas honestly had to consider things for a couple of second. How demons had been portrayed traditionally was not exactly accurate... but not far from reality, either. -That's a tricky one! See, Asag is a nasty demon, although saying that he wanted to cause turmoil throughout the human realm is exaggerating a lot. For starters, I still don't know how demons ended up in our homeland, but their behavior wasn't "destroy everything". Most of them, while extremely hostile and willing to kill at first sight, were doing their own thing. Those I killed had just come across with our hometown, and were willing to rip it to shreds. You could compare them to bandits, for example.
However, Vargas paused, and then resumed his explanation.
-Still, I'm sure that since a lot of demons do have intelligence, there has to be a few that have chosen a different path. Though if you ask me to put an end to them, I'll do it. Part of the job. -Vargas's voice didn't show the slightest waver at the sight of killing something. He had acknowledged it was necessary.
The Seig would then listen with interest to Kirara's story on how she had gotten her magic. It was pretty astonishing, considering that not only had she been in the verge of death, but gods themselves had come down and promised to protect her and keep her safe. She also mentioned strange things going on with her patched eye, to which Vargas wondered why exactly did she have it covered. He had a doubt that he'd ask about, however.
-By underworld, what exactly do you mean? Earthland? Or the demon's realm?
