A question mark popped up as Imai heard an unfamiliar voice from behind. It was from a young girl who was curious about his blabbing a moment earlier, and honestly, he feared that he had made himself a fool in front of her or anything… further listening to her words, it didn’t appear to be the case. Perhaps she was just curious? Either way, if no ill thoughts prompted her to come here, then he’d behave; he turned around to finally face perhaps the cutest little girl that he had ever met. “O-Oh, hello there,” he greeted joyously, “Yeah, uh, about that… I was just thinking out loud is all! I swear, I didn’t know that you heard me!” Sweat pearls were already dropping off his head as he tried to eliminate any misunderstandings, but… was it for naught? Did he worsen the situation?
“I-I’m Imai!” he greeted, “And uh… wait, you’re a Sabertooth wizard too! That means-“ He hadn’t seen her before, so she must’ve been new around here… or perhaps she’d been long gone on some large, vast adventure. It was likely the former. “A-As a matter of fact… hehehe,” he spoke more confidently as he scratched his nose with his index finger all shonen like, “I’ll be seeing more of you around here. I am the Ace of Sabertooth, after all.” Sei would fly around Imai’s and Celeste’s heads with upmost curiosity about the God Slayer and her sketch book. “I was thinking about getting a vehicle myself, so I don’t have to jump from country to country… oh, that reminds me, are you free for now?” He had eyed a job paper on the quest board that requested help against a gang of robbers in the Forgotten Deserts, and this could be a good way to learn more about Celeste.
“I was thinking of going out and bringing a lot of stolen goods from some robbers… I could use a helping hand, if you don’t mind.”
