Kite had been sitting at one of the various bar stools in the Red Dragon inn located in the middle of the town Ace of Spade with a plate of food on its way. Despite the fact that he owned the inn and could visit at any given time with one simple jump through a portal inside the guild hall safely hidden in the realm in between. Ever since the Yggdrasil, the new Guild Hall had been grown in the realm that housed the Elders, he’d not gotten a moment’s peace. First an army of monsters broke into their world at various locations throughout Fiore including Beanstalk village where he fought his share of the invaders alongside his friend and Second in command Ryo, The Guild Master of SIlver Wolf Leila Vergious and one of the aces of lamia Scale Samira and then his magic had gotten stolen during a visit by Iza which got him killed and then resurrected. So one could surmise that Kite’s life had not been anything less than busy including too busy to come to the inn and sit down for a good cooked meal. However this was one of the rare occasions that he had no paperwork, he had no crisis to deal with, no training to do and of course no plans on dying today so all in all today was a good day and the best part of this day was going to be the enormous breakfast he ordered from the kitchen. His order was 3 eggs scrambled, a short stack of pancakes, a stack of thick waffles, 5 strips of bacon and coffee and now all he had to do was wait. The clerk tending the bar approached holding Kite’s cup of coffee, “hey Master coffee is up.” and proceeded to slide the small white cup of coffee down to the Guild master which of course he caught but gave the keep a stern expression, ”You don’t gotta keep calling me that. Kite is fine.“ he said before sipping his piping hot coffee “Yeah I know.. It just feel i dunno.. Disrespectful?” and that was still strange. He wasn’t always the guild master and never once imagined that calling him anything other than Master could be looked at as disrespectful. ”We will work on that. How long until the food is done?“ he was genuinely curious to just how much more of a wait he would have to endure in order to enjoy his delicious smelling food. “Last I checked they were just waiting on the bacon to finish cookin, should be another minute.” and as much joy as that brought to him it unfortunately it was the famous last words. After the clerk went to assist another customer the messenger that brought the mail from the council arrived and of course once he spotted the Guild Master he made his way over already reaching into his bag to extract some sort letter for him. “Here you go Master Kite.” he held the letter out but Kite sipped the coffee, ”No.“ he said after he swallowed and sipped again. Stunned by the answer the boy kept the letter out. “Master Kite it’s from the Council. It’s urgent.” Kite put his cup down next to him on the counter and looked at the boy, ”Turn around and walk out that door and come back in ten minutes.“ He pointed but the boy was stubborn, “Sir its my job to give this to you please take the letter.” Kite reached and snatched it out of the air clearly showing his annoyance. ”Only five minutes huh.“ and almost on cue the plate with his food slid next to him an the clerk have him a thumbs up.
Back in the guildhall located in the realm between the portal that connected the Yggdrasil and the special room at the back of the Red Dragon Inn rippled as Kite walked through with the paper clenched in fist. He managed to find another army to fight off and this one was controlled by demons. ”It had to be demons.“ had it been anything else he would have been able to ignore it long enough for him to sit and eat his food that he had been longing for some time However the numbers the council managed to discover was alarming and he would need help. Ryo wasn’t around at the moment so he would have to find a partner and as it just so happened he had one in mind. He boarded Tail Spin through the Cargo Bay and walked right up the stairs to the catwalk that lined the walls of the ship, ”EDI spin up the engine. We got work.“ He climbed the stairs until he was above deck and made his way to the cockpit. He could hear the turbines as well as the main engine at the end of the ship roar to life before he made it through the foredeck, “Where are we heading?” EDI asked wanting to set their coordinates. ”The cursed lands is where we have work but we are going to make a detour to Hargoen.“ she let a small chuckle, “Again?” Hargeon somehow drew Kite to in for a job in on fashion or another so a sigh escaped as he sat and took hold of the controls and pulled the ship into the air, ”I am going to see if Samira wants to join me. A mage as powerful as her could help me make short work of this or rather shorter work.“ If EDI had a face it would be in a smirk, “Isn’t Samira one of the young ladies you met in Beanstalk.. The one with the dark green hair that you offered a ride.” it wasn’t a question. ”That’s right why?“ he was curious to what she was getting at. ”For a human female she is considered attractive right?“ Kite cocked his head, ”I’d say so yes.“ he said as he turned the ship and pulled it through the large one way portal to put him in Fiore sky above Ace of spades which is when EDI took over and steered it to the Lamia scale guild. “You gonna hit on her again?” he would cross his arms at the question, ”I’m not answering that.“ he turned away from her view finder and she chimed in. “ Just dont get me blown up if she gets angry.” There was silence for the remaining trip until EDI broke the silence. “ We have arrived.” Kite stood up still red from the question and went below deck to the cargo bad to exit the ship and headed towards teh Lamia scale guild. ”I’ve never been here before. I wonder if they have a door bell.“
