Job Description: The recent events in Peace Village and Phoenix Mountains weigh heavily on both Eero's mind and heart. The issue of his missing memories combined with the presence of the other self test Eero's currently frail sanity levels. However, Eero still seeks answers to the few memories he had uncovered. He wishes to find any and all mentions of dragons who hold or held the element of poison. Eero had heard about Leona's trip to the Capital Crocus before she left. After sending Soho with word of the possible meet up of the mages, Eero sets out for the Capital himself. Unfortunately, the pent up doubt, frustration and insecurity turn the research trip into a disaster. The mages will have to handle the situation that arises the best they can and its consequences.

The boy didn't want to go back to him room, though. He knew that it would make him feel more on edge again. He decided to go sit on the front porch. Eero walked through the entrance hall. So many new people joined as of late, it lifted up his heart a little bit. They would build a name for themselves, he was sure about it. He pushed open the doors and sat down on the wooden stairs in front of them. He only had his sweatpants and a t-shirt on him, but he didn't feel cold. At least not yet. He needed to reflect, though. The books in their Guild library didn't reveal too much to him, unfortunately. Not too much that he already didn't know. Eero hugged his knees in thought. Maybe a visit to a different library could be the answer? It sounded like he could give that a try, at the very least. /"Oak Town? It IS known as the town of history, after all.."/ That sounded like a solid idea. The question was - should he venture on his own? Would it be safe for him or for other people? Eero couldn't tell if he was in the best of states to go anywhere, alone especially. But only two people other than himself knew about his condition, for lack of a better term. Poko and Leona. He knew that calling upon Poko while she was busy with Guildmaster's duties would be a selfish decision. Not to mention that she would most likely not even have the time to help him. His only option was to turn to Leona, but he had overheard that she went away on a trip of her own. To Capital Crocus, if Eero remembered correctly. Something about hunting down one book in particular. That could maybe work out. Crocus was the Capital, so perhaps they had books and tomes that one couldn't find elsewhere, even in Oak. The problem was that Leona was already gone, so he didn't have a way of asking her if she wanted to accompany him. More like keep an eye on him, really. What he could do, however, was to write a note and give it to Soho to deliver to her. He would probably set out on the road himself, whether Leona's response would be positive or negative. If he didn't find anything in Crocus, he could always go to Oak Town later on.
The idea had been conjured up, then. The boy swiftly walked into his room and whistled for Soho. He opened up a window and the bird flew in, shortly. "Alright Soho. I have a bit of daunting task for you, but I know that you can do it." His friend tilted his head in anticipation of instructions. "I would like you to take a note to Leona in Capital Crocus. Can you do that for me?" Soho immediately nodded. Eero smiled and searched for a piece of paper that he could use for the note. He tore an empty page into half and wrote down his note.
I'm sorry to bother you with an another selfish request. I have been on a search for any information about poison dragons, but so far I haven't been successful. I heard about your trip to Crocus, so I was thinking that two heads would be better than one and meet up. If you are still there and willing to, of course. If you don't have anything to write with, just leave the note with Soho to let me know that you agree. Throw it away if not. I will be already on the way, whichever your answer will be.
His handwriting was hasty and Eero hoped that Leona would be able to read it. He folded the paper and gave it to Soho, who took it with his strong talons. "To Leona, in Crocus. I'm counting on you, buddy." The bird screeched and flew back outside to deliver Eero's message. The boy himself had to get ready for the road. He put on his usual black jeans and a tight t-shirt with a blue jacket on top of it. He fastened his leather choker around his neck and attached the artifact to it. One day he would unlock its secrets. But would he be able to bear whatever was inside? Only time could tell. The boy tossed a notebook with a few pencils into his leather travel bag along with an empty water container and set out.
