"What? Again?" Ahote held a white mug full of coffee with cream and sugar, unable to sip from his hot beverage upon hearing what he did. Sitting on a stool against a counter, on the opposite side stood a large, stocky man with a thick, brown beard and small eyes who went by Rufus. The two had talked with each other among themselves in the otherwise empty bar, Rufus cleaning glasses and the raven haired boy drinking from one of those said glasses.
"Yep. That old couple is looking for some more help over in those Spooky Woods. You up for it?" Rufus offered, a crumbled piece of paper on the counter before him. Ahote furrowed his brows, reading the paper's contents. It seemed like a simple job, but he was surprised that he'd get word of such a job in the same location from the same clients as before.
He sighed, finally sipping from his mug with a tired expression. "Yeah, I guess.
I think I'll take my leave before your customers come then, mister Rufus." Ahote felt the blood rush to his cheeks in excitement in knowing he'd be able to go on another job today, chugging down the caffeinated drink, slamming the mug onto the counter along with a handful of jewels, snatching the paper from the wooden counter, rushing out of the tavern, "Bye then, mister Rufus!" Ahote waved, slithering past the table and out of the doors, into the deep afternoon snow.
Even after he rushed out into the snowy mountain range, quickly putting on his usual thick, woolen coat, the boy did not slow down in his running. He looked down at the job request once more, provoking a series of thought. If I can catch the one-hour train over to the Spooky Forest, spend up to two hours looking for this skunk and catch the same train back, I can be home without anyone noticing a thing. Alright! Ahote surmised, rushing to the nearest train station.
With a brief train ride and a dozen or so minutes of walking, the scenery faded from desolate, snow covered mountains to lively woods and tall, green grass and trees. It was always a delightful ride for Ahote, no matter how often had had been on and off Mt. Hakobe. The change in scenery was always refreshing.
Upon arriving at the Spooky Forest, things seemed as they usually did besides the increase in dead leaves scattered about. It looked more like a forest that belonged in an autumn setting. With both hands tucked away in pants pockets, Ahote let his eyes wander. "They weren't kidding about that terrible view. Leaves everywhere, huh. . ." Ahote mumbled to himself, walking about the woods with the crunch of the leaves under his black, leather boots.
"Well, I guess I should actually start looking. . . it won't just come to me." Ahote continued to ramble, looking in bushes, behind trees, even going as far as looking under rocks. Oh boy, this would take a while.
