Job requirements:Take care of the baby and make him fall asleep when his parents come back.
Client’s Name: Katy
Location: Magnolia Town
Information: Me and my husband are going for a big party and it’s out of town. Our son, our naughty-inhumane-son, is going to spend the night alone if he doesn’t have any babysitter to take care of him. We need you to take care of him and when we come back we expect him asleep; or else I will not reward you. This may sound like an easy job to do, but in fact it’s hard. The fact that I say that is because; he’s an inhumane baby: he’s very naughty, and dangerous. This one time, I saw him taking a knife and nearly cut his cute fingers off. Anyway, good luck!
Rewards: 750 jewels each.
Smiling professionally, the sharp-tongued blonde positioned herself outside her client's door, running her fingers through silky platinum locks too smoothen it out. In her hands, a flyer for an escort task that Lillias had swiftly plucked off the request board the moment she saw the pay it offered.
How peculiar. For a family that pays so much, they have quite the humble abode. she thought, rapping on the door lightly. Perhaps they liked living quietly? It was uncommon, but not unheard of. Lillias herself liked her residence to be simple and classy.
She wondered if the escort mission was going to take long. Where would they be headed? If her memory served her right there had been no mention of the destination on the paper.
Well, whatever it was, Lillias was quite looking forward to it. Escort missions were quite interesting, since it brought her to all sorts of places. Unfortunately, in her hurry to take the mission, she'd unwittingly taken the wrong flyer off the board, and fully expected it to be an escort mission. So when the wooden door opened and a squealing, pudgy little thing was thrust into her arms, Lillias did the most reasonable thing expected of anyone of her caliber.
Lillias Noel dropped her supposed client's baby on his head, five seconds into meeting them.
Moments later, she was left alone with the child, staring suspiciously at the gurgling creature splayed on the floor. Fortunately, she had not been charged with attempted murder, thanks to the father's timely catch.
"What sort of hell-spawn child are you to need a mage to babysit it?" Lillias muttered to herself in bafflement. She removed the flyer from the waist of her apron, sighing discontentedly. So much for an escort mission, she thought. Despite her insistence that she had taken the wrong request, the couple insisted that she look after the child. They were pressed for time and could not afford to wait for someone else. "You did nearly kill my baby, after all, so it's only fair that you help me as a sort of apology. You'll even be paid!" She recalled the woman's smug look when Lillias was, for once, speechless.
"Your mother is an awful woman," she scowled, and the baby flopped adorably forward onto its front, giggling.
The two spent the next five minutes staring at each other, before she lost the baby's attention and he moved on to the toys scattered about in his playpen. Lillias decided to read the instructions his mother had left behind, which was surprisingly detailed. Lunch was in an hour - there was a simple recipe for it, alongside notes on how to deal with him. Then, bath time would be around four in the afternoon, and she would have to ensure that the water was warm, but not boiling hot. This was followed by dinner, then a little storytelling and bedtime. Strangely enough, bedtime was scheduled at 7:30.
The blonde looked to the baby curiously. The very picture of innocence, she thought. Perhaps now would be a good time to see just what she had missed when she left her infant cousin to the many babysitters years ago. Likely, not much.
She took one final look at the child, who was bashing blocks against each other dumbly before taking her leave from the playpen and heading for the kitchen.
