    Beneath still waters.. Empty Beneath still waters..

    Post by Solmar on 8th July 2019, 11:45 am

    Sitting in a tavern by the port of Cedar, Solmar had taken it upon himself to rest himself by the bar to get himself something to eat and something to wash it down with. Enjoying the temporary silence while it lasted, he knew that it would only continue for a little while as the last couple of days in his life had been rather hectic to say the least. During the summer solstice, he had been fighting a strange appearance that claimed itself to be a god in the Peace village, which was just one of the many places he had stopped by in to make sure they did not need someone like him for something. Apparently, they did, as he and a Rune Knight by the name of Shane had taken it upon themselves to slay the creature and his followers before they could actually sacrifice any of the villagers. When the creature eventually had his head severed from his shoulders by Solmar's blade, it seemed the case that Solmar himself had been cursed by the Goat monster.

    Taking a chug of his ale, he remembered the words it had spoken to him in his mind, how calamity would follow him around, bringing with it a tide that would continue to wash over him until he got swept up in it. Because the solstice had amplified his magic by quite a bit, the young mage had more or less hidden himself away from the world in the mountains until it would all go back to normal. But as one might have imagined, this did not go by as quickly as he had hoped, and calamity had indeed followed him around in the form of a large tidal wave that crashed upon the tall cliffs. Had this been all, he would have gotten away with it with nothing more than some soaked slacks. When the water itself had seemingly come alive in the form of strange apparitions that started attacking him however, it took the earth rising up in the shape of a massive behemoth to drive them back into the ocean. Not getting the opportunity to be thanked properly, the behemoth picked Solmar as his next target after that.

    It was in this fashion that things had continued, the earth elemental attacking him in an attempt at destroying him for meddling in the affairs of higher beings. In time however, more of these things appeared and started fighting among one another as they were clearly not friends. A monster made up entirely of fire and molten things, a creature that seemed to be made out of wind and electricity and a larger watery creature with many flailing tendrils continued clashing against one another while smaller versions appeared all over the place. As their fighting was actually reshaping the land itself, he had taken it upon himself to set things straight because he felt responsible for it, even though there was really nothing he could have done to stop it from happening in the first place. In time, as the elemental monstrosities fought one another, he eventually got himself involved and fought against the creature of flame fight.

    As time went by, the earthen elemental went back into the ground while the water elemental returned to the ocean, which one might have considered to be a good thing. Solmar however knew by now that the two were likely marshalling their forces and preparing to go at it yet again. Though slaying the elemental of wind and elemental of fire, doing so had taken quite a bit out of him. So much in fact that he had left his Exceed Fellis behind in the cabin in the mountains, where he'd be safe from all of this. With a broken rib, he had then started following the water elemental, making sure that it knew that Solmar was still there. As this led him all the way from the Phoenix mountains to the port of Cedar, it was there that he had taken up his roost on a barstool in a local tavern. With his thick fur coat covering most of his features, including his face, he sat in the corner of the room while listening to the stories told by the sailors.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    Biting down into the turkey leg, his loud chewing might give the impression that he was just busy with himself, though his enhanced hearing could clearly pick up on every single word said within the building. Though it had been hard to fine tune his hearing in a crowded room like this, he could now accurately pick up on things by focusing on certain key words that interested him and toning down the rest around it. It was for that same reason that he heard someone speaking about how the Cloud sea had been terrorized by attackers that seemed to move by the grace of the ocean itself. Believing that this might be linked to the water elementals, it did make him wonder what the point was with them helping out other people when they believed themselves to be superior to "fleshlings". Whatever the case, he continued listening as the group got rowdier with others sharing more stories that seemed to fit in with the subject.

    As it turned out, these ships came up on other boats under the cover of a large fog bank, accompanied by strange sounds hiding behind the haze and beneath the waves. Not long after that, the current would cease, leaving ships dead in the water while the others continued to move in closer, up until the point where the attack happened. Not firing any rounds, the ships were attacked in complete silence, leaving only some muffled screams and the sound of clashing water while an entire boat went dark. From the sound of it, the man that had been talking had been a survivor of one such attack as he knew far too much of it in detail for it to merely be old wives' tales and hearsay. Once different stories were starting to overrule that which he had been listening in on, stories of whales eating entire ships in the night or other tales that seemed so stupid only a drunkard might buy into it, he finished his plate and his drink while telling the barkeep to hold his spot.

    Offering the man a handful of jewels in exchange, he left his seat while wincing in pain, forgetting about the broken rib for a moment as he barely felt it when sitting down. Even moving felt relatively painless, though it was the whole act of going from standing to sitting or laying down, or any combination of the above that hurt. With a shove, he pushed his way through the crowd and made his way outside. There was something he needed to do here. When he had been here some months ago, he had taken various simple jobs off of a notice board, though this time he wanted to go to the one that was in charge of them. Visiting the local ealdorman, he inquired about the ships that disappeared in the seas near their port and if there were any jobs out. As it turned out, there were a lot of people who had banded together to save up money as a reward for whoever could put an end to the marauders out at sea and retrieve proof of their demise.

    Asking whether the ealdorman could arrange for a ship to take him out to sea, it seemed that none of the locals were willing to go out at night, which was when most of the attacks took place. Annoying as it was, this meant that he might have to actually sneak out under the cover of darkness and steal a ship that could get him to where he needed to be. Unfortunately though, his misfortune did not end there considering how he had no idea as to how sailing worked. That, and he really did not feel comfortable going out into open water at night. At times like those, the already dark and deep waters seemed like they were but a black abyss, waiting to swallow him up, drag him down and drown him miles beneath the waves. Knowing some of the stories regarding the things that were down there, the last thing he wanted was to fall off of the boat and land in the water, to be at the mercy of those… things. No, if he was going to do this, he would need to be clever about it. Sitting himself down outside the building, he put his hood back on and started pondering on what to do next.

    "Excuse me, sir. I couldn't help but overhear your need of a boat."

    Hovering over the hooded sorcerer was a pale, regal man with long white hair and icy blue eyes. He was dressed in a completely back suit that one would normally see worn in formal settings with a golden tie to finish it off. He was a beautiful, unapproachable man with a friendly smile and eyes so sharp that he looked like he was glaring at people all the time. His complexion was so pale that his entire body seemed to be drained of any color and vitality, giving him a ghostly and mysterious air to him.

    Ahote was his name—and his appearance was always changing. He didn't always look so ghostly. In fact, his original form, and probably the best of all three, consisted of beautiful brown locks and warm hazel eyes. His complexion was full and a hearty white and he simply just looked less ill. Unfortunately, however, it proved most difficult to sustain such an appearance under his circumstances. The souls of those who've recently passed were harder to garner when Rune Knights are always prowling about in places they shouldn't be. Consequently, his revitalization or restoration was very much a work in progress.

    In Fiore, word travels fast—even to those foreign to the subject. In this case, this is especially true. Ahote and Aeluri, friends and guildmates, had come to Cedar Town after rumors of "dangerous waters" rising in this area. Well, he recalls it like that because this same predicament was labeled differently depending on where you went: ghostly seas, murderous pirates, and the like. He could never get a very clear answer as to what the situation was until he and Aeluri arrived here themselves with a salty sea breeze to greet them.

    "Are you a local?" Ahote queried quietly while looking down at the hooded man.

    Aeluri’s nimble fingers played with the hem of her black cloak, running over the stitches in a fevered motion. The texture beneath her fingertips somewhat soothed her. If she were physically a cat, only the very tip of her tail would be twitching. Such was the only sign that the female mage was unnerved. It was in her nature to hide weaknesses like fear far away from public view. Any indication of her emotions or thoughts to potential enemies was a danger. Today, however, the summoner was nearly unable to contain the uneasiness she felt. It was near. The one thing she feared to her core, the one thing that could give her a chill down her spine just by its proximity.

    The ocean.

    A whiff of salt and fish accosted her nose. Aeluri’s stomach flipped. For the umpteenth time she wondered why she had followed a lead with Ahote. What could have possibly made her think that being this close to the ocean was okay? The two had heard rumors of mysterious deaths and disappearances around Cedar. There was never one clear explanation of the occurrences, as the story had changed between every person the two mages had asked. Gossip traveled fast, but truth did not.

    So here the two friends were, standing before a hooded figure after perusing the streets and bars near the Cedar port. Locals seemed to be spooked at the mention of the recent deaths, but were more than glad to give out helpful information. Aeluri had even heard mutterings of a pool of reward money being collected. Now that was something the woman couldn’t complain about. With her chunk of reward money she could buy plenty of whiskey. After today’s events she would need a drink or two - or ten.

    Aeluri’s fingers still battered the edge of her waist-length cloak. Since they were going to a port town and the sea breezes were often chilly, she had decided to wear befitting clothing. The waterproof cloak concealed most of her other clothing. A simple black long sleeve shirt warmed her top while black shorts and tights protected her from the waist down. As predicted, the first hint of air coming off the waves had been cool, dropping in temperature as the ocean had come closer. Aeluri was made content with the confirmed warmth of her attire.

    Mismatching eyes observed the person Ahote had queried. Their face wasn’t currently visibly, but by the broadness of their shoulders Aeluri could tell it was a man. He was likely taller than both her and Ahote. She could sense magic coming from him. The summoning mage heightened her hearing to equal a cat’s momentarily. Her intent was to glean as much information as she could about the man without having to ask. Unfortunately, her sensitive ears were struck with the loud smacking that came as the stranger took a bite of his turkey leg. A scowl appeared on Aeluri’s face as she withdrew her hearing ability. Sitting back and waiting for his answer to Ahote was what she was reduced to.

    Turning his head as someone other than the ealdorman spoke to him, he turned to get a better look at who it was that did so. With a few quick glances, he could rule out the possibility that it was someone that he knew or had somehow seen before somewhere, as clearly this was not the case. Once the ealdorman saw that Solmar had started conversing with someone else, the old man took his leave, heading back into his home as there was really nothing left for him to discuss with the hooded swordsman. Moving his hand up to remove his hood, it allowed him to get a better look at the two people that had approached him, including the dark haired woman. Appearing as if he was thinking up an answer, the black haired mage had already figured out exactly what to tell them, but took the time to build up some suspense and learn as much as he could just by observing their reaction. Generally speaking, those that had grown up in modern society seemed to be impatient, at least that was what he had learned so far through firsthand experience.

    "I am, though I don't think I've ever seen either of you before. I take it that you're the owner of a ship, or that you might know where to get one? It's rather important."

    Running his fingers through his short black hair, he put it back into its natural state as the weight of the hood had pressed it against the top of his head. That was the risk one took when wearing a fur coat made out of a large grizzly. Once he was done, Solmar seemingly tapped his hand against his chest a couple of times, as one did when they had a cough that got stuck halfway. This was however not the case, as the fur coat started wiggling and moving but a second later. Shortly after, a winged white cat flew out of his coat and took to the skies for a moment before settling in the hood of Solmar's coat. From there, the Exceed had a clear vantage point from where he could keep a close eye on these strangers. Without saying a word, Fellis just remained inside of the hood while Solmar started walking away from the ealdorman's home. Gesturing at the two to follow him, he walked closer towards the actual port at a rather steady pace.

    "You probably figured as much already, but I'm not one of the locals of Cedar. But I take it that the two of you aren't either, you don't possess the same kind of smell that the locals here do. I can't really explain it, but it is like the briny scent seeped into their being, which is something I can't sense from either one of you."

    In saying these things, he made it rather clear that while he did not know a whole lot about the modern world and had never really been to school, he was far from being a fool. He had some altogether different skills, skills that would not help him out with a written test, but would certainly keep him alive in the wilderness. One thing he figured so far was that the pale man was most likely the one leading their troupe of two, considering how the girl was rather quiet and did not seem to bring a whole lot to the table in terms of discussion. Though he did not have his eyes constantly upon them and had his back turned as he was leading the way, the cat lurking in his hood did not let them out of his sights even once. Fellis was protective of his friend that way. Besides, Solmar's sense of smell was not the only thing that had been developed far above that of the average human, as his sense of smell and his sight had done so as well. To that extent, he did not fear having strangers walking behind him, knowing that there was very little one could do to him without his knowledge.

    "If you do happen to have a ship and are looking for work, I would consider hiring you. Though I can't pay you right now, we can split the prize for this job three ways, considering any of us make it out alive."

    Ahote waited expectantly for the hooded man to respond, but there was a subtle and awkward pause in between their replies. Ahote was a patient man and also a stranger to social norms, so he didn't mull over this fact too much. Instead, he found himself admiring the man's features as he unveiled himself. He had a particularly ruggedness to his countenance, but didn't look much older or younger than Aeluri and himself. He had a distinct sharpness to his electric blue eyes and brow, giving him an almost ravenous expression. His hair was a striking black and, while every hair was in its place, appeared almost wild and unkempt. In other words—he wasn't unattractive but didn't look friendly, either. Coincidentally, Ahote was oblivious that he had the same air about him as did this man.

    When this man unveiled himself, some winged beast sprung from its depths and back into his hood with an unfaltering gaze. Its fur was as optic as white snow and its glare was just as icy and unshifting. When Ahote's eyes met with theirs, he had the uncanny and awkward feeling of being sized up and suddenly felt like breaking the silence with Aeluri to ease his nerves. But Aeluri didn't seem to have any interest in talking at that moment.

    The man confirmed that he was a local and began to walk away, and he and Aeluri would follow an appropriate distance behind the fellow with the creature, most likely an Exceed, staring at them the whole time. However, just as soon as he said was a local, he then said he wasn't.

    Ahote's expression hardened for a moment at this chain of events. He began to wonder if there was something that he missed, something that went over his head because he didn't figure that the man was lying because he had never met the man nor ever been in Cedar, and there was simply no reason to doubt his answer. Now that he thought about it, the man was probably suspicious of them when they first approached him. Was it because of what they wore? Maybe it was their appearances themselves? The man continued on to talk about scents or something of the sort, but Ahote was too preoccupied with these questions to hear a single word of it and followed him in a bewildered stupor that wasn't exceedingly obvious.

    But his brooding was brief, as the man's next comment was heard. Thing was, Ahote hadn't realized that these rumors were actually job requests made from real clients. Their being here was a product of his curiosity and clinginess of Aeluri, inevitably dragging her along from what he surmised. Whether or not she held a genuine interest in these ghost stories was a mystery to him and he never cared to ask. Nevertheless, he was delighted to hear that there was a tangible reward, but nothing on his expression would show it.

    "You certainly waste no time." Ahote simpered weakly and smiled. "We don't have a ship, but we know how to get one. And from the sound of it, it seems that you don't have one either. Does that sound alright?" the pale man queried.

    Ahote had never been to Cedar Town and had only just arrived with Aeluri about an hour ago. However, stealing a ship didn't require brains or brawn, just a knowledge of where to steal it. This was a skill that everyone Ahote had known had acquired at a young age. It was a skill with an expectation attached to it. If you needed to steal, you should be able to. No matter the size of the item, or if it's an item to begin with. It wasn't that complicated, but this man didn't have to know that, of course.

    The Exceed that popped from beneath the man’s robes was a surprise to say the least. It flew up just to perch its white paws inside his grizzly fur hood. Aeluri didn’t think that such a creature would feel at home near the water, but then again it was an Exceed. They were quite different than other cats. The thought made the woman miss her own feline companion, Umbra. The black cat had decided to sit this adventure out when he heard they were going near the ocean. Despite his love for fish, he had no desire to brave the port or even a ship. Aeluri desperately wished he was here. It would bring her a little more comfort.

    The two guildmates followed behind the man under the watchful eye of the white Exceed. Confidence was the most prominent thing Aeluri noticed about him - besides his striking blue eyes. He walked forward with almost a comfortable air, not once glancing back at the two. Perhaps he was stronger than he looked. The summoner remained wary as he kept her pace beside Ahote. Though the man wasn’t a local, he seemed to know where he was going. The two kept up with his gait.

    “A ship?” Aeluri spoke, breaking her former silence with a pleasantly smooth voice. “I suppose it shouldn’t be too hard to snatch one up.” Stealing was something the woman was quite familiar with. Many a wallet had been lost to her nimble hands. It wouldn't be hard to take a ship from the dock, though she had no clue how to sail one. That would be left up to her companions. Aeluri turned slowly in a circle, scanning the docks. By the time she was facing the two men again, she had picked out a sturdy-looking vessel. Though she had only glanced at it for a mere second, that was enough to gather details and make a decision. There was one other ship that she had wanted to choose, but with her heightened hearing the sound of two people committing unseemly actions beneath the decks had been an unpleasant discovery. So her second choice became the best option.

    “You see that ship on the northwest side of us that’s painted slate gray with a white stripe just above the water level?” she addressed them both. “We’ll take that one,” came the statement with a sharp edge, not leaving room for complaint. “Now, do you boys want to steal it now or by the cover of darkness?”

    "You're right, I don't like to waste time when I'm doing something that I feel is important. That, and I don't really like being this close to the ocean, nor do I really enjoy the idea of going out there on some silly little ship. So excuse the attitude, I just don't like the open ocean."

    Being rather up front and honest about why he could be considered as being a bit on edge, he felt like he had a pretty good reason for it. It hadn't been that long since he had last faced the lady of water, a self-proclaimed title given to the elemental mistress of water, Undine. He had seen firsthand what water could do, how it could rise up to towering waves that could crush whatever happened to be in the way, how things could hide down in the depths and only really show themselves whenever they wanted to while being all too aware of what was on the water's surface above them. As someone who had always spent his time living in forests, jungles and even mountains, he had always taken some pride in being aware of his surroundings, knowing the lay of the land and what he might expect from the creatures he might be running into. But none of those things, not a single one of them carried any weight when venturing out into the ocean, and part of that was what frightened him quite a bit.

    When he had faced off against Undine, it was because Shane was there to back him up, and because another elemental lord had already roughed her up a bit before she had killed it and fled back into the ocean. While Undine was dead and could no longer bother anyone with her homicidal antics and plans for world domination by literally drowning all the lands into the ocean, that did not mean that he felt any better about surrounding himself with nothing but water. The simple fact that he could not see what was going on beneath him, what threats might be lurking beneath the waves in de abyssal depths, that they'd more or less be at the mercy of the weather, all of these were things that made him hate having to go out there. All it took was some stormy weather to capsize their ship and send them down into a cold, watery death. Shaking the thought, he returned to the present, listening in on how the girl made an observation or two regarding the boats and as to when they would be leaving the shore behind.

    "If we do aim to…. steal… borrow a boat, I suggest we do it after it gets a bit darker. While I do not particularly care for going out into the ocean in the dark, it seems that that's when these pirates or whatever they are tend to attack other vessels. So if we're going to get them to fall for the bait, we'd need a sizeable ship and go out in the dark, otherwise we might just sit here on the docks and wait for them to come to us."

    With the latter being his attempt at stating the obvious in the form of a joke, he wondered if anyone would get it due to the fact that he was rather stoic about it. He figured someone like Amalie would most likely say that this was a sarcasm. While he had stated before that he did not like to waste time when there was a job to be done, this was exactly the time where he was more or less forced to sit around and wait until the right time of day. And since time was one of those things that simply could not be willed into moving any faster, he exhaled deeply as he looked around. Figuring that the tavern was not that far from here, and he had actually paid the barkeep to keep his spot open, it was perhaps the best idea for them to just head back over there and have something to eat and drink. Though he could not speak for the others, he was in a state where he could pretty much always eat, one of the many tricks his metabolism liked to play on him. Besides, it would probably look better if they waited it out there when the intention was to steal a ship later on.

    "I think it'd be a good idea to head to the tavern and wait it out there, at least that's what I intend on doing. It might not look good if we stay out here where everyone can see us, especially when the intention is to… borrow one of these boats. I'll be heading to the tavern to get me and Fellis something to eat, so you can either come with or meet back here in two hours."

    For someone as moody as this man, he sure liked to talk a lot, but Ahote couldn't tell if that was his own quirkiness speaking or perhaps people in general weren't nearly as black and white as he originally thought. Either way, he found himself unable to respond with the same sort of talkativeness and instead listened attentively.

    The man went into such detail about the procedure that Ahote was beginning to think that it was less of a response to his offer and more of a monologue. But he didn't mind this—he was so unfamiliar with social settings and interactions that he ended up enjoying his lack of involvement in these sorts of exchanges.

    "Borrowing?" Ahote chimed pleasantly, "Is that what you all call it? How wholesome. . ." the pale-faced man began smiled a friendly smile, scoffing at the term. He couldn't tell whether the man was joking or if it was a poor attempt to soothe his guilty conscience.

    It didn't seem like there was anything else to discuss. The plan was rather simple—return to the docks at night, steal a ship, and set sail onto open waters to investigate the "ghosts" at sea. He had no qualms about the ocean, he was actually quite excited. Before they came here, he had actually told Iris and Aeluri about how he wanted to see the ocean, but he never expected that he'd be seeing it under such compromising circumstances. Regardless, he remained optimstic, unlike Aeluri, who seemed to shrink in the shadow of the idea.

    But then, the man spoke again, this time of what he planned to do to kill time before nightfall. The question seemed to throw Ahote for a loop, since they did have quite a few hours before nightfall to spare now that he thought about it. Ahote looked over to Aeluri expectantly, "Ah. . . well. . ." he hummed uncertainly, staring sheepishly at his companion, anticipating an answer for the man in his stead.

    The black-haired man explained that his curt attitude was because of his unfavorable opinion of the ocean. Aeluri let out a quiet breath of relief, somewhat glad she wasn’t the only one who was apprehensive about traversing the choppy waters. She just hoped he wasn’t the seasick type. At least Ahote would probably enjoy himself. He had disclosed to herself and her teammate Iris a while ago that he had always wanted to visit the ocean. Here they were, as close to the depths as they had ever been, and Ahote’s excitement was very visible.

    The man prompted them with the options of joining him at the tavern or meeting back in two hours. Ahote remained indecisive, looking her way for an answer. “We’ll join you at the tavern,” Aeluri replied. Her stomach was complaining, but she couldn’t tell if it was from hunger or anxiety. “I’m gonna need some drinks if I’m gonna survive this,” she muttered under her breath, not caring if her companions heard or not. Taking the initiative, she paced back the way they had came without looking behind her. Surely some whiskey would calm her nerves.

    When they reached the tavern, she made her way to the bar counter. “Two shots of whiskey please,” the woman requested to the bartender and slid a few jewel notes across the counter. Two glasses slid her way moments later. Both were downed within seconds and her expression remained unaffected: the perpetual subtle scowl she had donned upon arriving in Cedar. With a nod of thanks to the bartender, the mage made her way across the tavern to reunite with the two men and the Exceed.

    Now that whiskey was burning in her stomach, Aeluri felt a little more at ease. The impending reality of the ocean was just hours away, but she did her best to forget about it. Some food and drink would help prepare her to face her fear. She claimed a seat at a nearby table and waited for the others to sit. “I’m hungry,” the summoner said, looking at her companions. “Are you guys?”

    "I imagine it sounds better than stealing, and I do intend to bring it back if it manages to stay afloat. Besides, if we do end up dying, there's no point in bringing back the boat as I doubt anyone will dive up our corpses, bring us back to life and throw us into a jail cell…"

    While it might have made him sound like a wise-ass, he was actually being completely serious and honest about his intentions. He knew that if he asked around, nobody here would be willing to lend somebody like him a ship, and he could not really blame them for it either. The young mage was quite well aware of what he looked like, and that he did not really blend in well with what people might consider to be your average citizen. Feeling like that wasn't so much his problem as it was their own short-sightedness, he believed that being a criminal for a little while to bring a greater threat to justice was something he could live with. The more he thought about things like that, the more he felt that he did not really care all that much for the rules and regulations set by the people. After all, he had never been a part of society, so it would be an odd thing if he felt bound by the restrictions they would pose on him. At least that was how he felt.

    By the time the three arrived at the tavern, which had not altogether been what he had expected at first, it seemed that the barkeep had managed to hold his seat for him as promised. Nodding at the man behind the counter, he took his seat again and ordered a pair of ribs. Feeling like he could really use some food in his stomach as he had never been on a boat before in his life, he decided to at least lay off on the drinks. Having a glass of water instead, he thought about how the girl intended to actually get liquored up. When she ordered whiskey, it made him wonder if, at the end of the day, he was going to be the one who was doing the sailing. Knowing how cruel and unforgiving the seas could be, he would not allow someone who had been drinking to hold his life in their hands. He had survived too many things to be felled by something as idiotic as drunk boating, that much was something he knew for a fact.

    "You're going to be sitting this one out Fellis, I'd rather not have you around out at sea. If anything bad happens, I won't be able to keep you safe you know."

    "That's okay, I can fly anyway, so I won't drown."

    Frowning a bit as the voice coming from his hood rejected the order posed by the black haired mage, he figured that the cat had a point. If something happened, he could just fly away and get back to the shore without really having to worry about anything. At that point, the only thing that would really pose a threat to the Exceed was a storm, which was exactly the thing Solmar himself was dreading. That said, the nice weather they had been having lately did not really scream "Storm", so unless things were to look any differently by nightfall, Solmar figured the cat could tag along.

    Ahote tailed closely behind Aeluri as she led the way to their table, which was different from where the man sat. The server was quick to serve Aeluri's whiskey, but Aeluri was even quicker to down them. An expression of disbelief and concern splashed over his pale expression as he watched, hesitantly reaching out to tap her shoulder but never quite making it. Every one of his friends were not only heavy drinkers, but could hold their liquor too. Because of this, Ahote always felt rather innocent and inexperienced compared to them as he never cared for drinking like they did. Ironically, however, he owned a bar in Crocus in which he was rather skilled in preparing the drinks he never really tried himself. Boomslang was, as the name might've suggested, booming with business. Even though he left for this mysterious adventure with Aeluri, the club was still open for business despite his absence. Because of his business, he never had a shortage of money, and no real reason to steal or to resort to those sort of tactics to get what he wanted.

    Ahote, still experiencing a peculiar mixture of awe and concern, nodded sheepishly to Aeluri's suggestion. "That's a good idea—you shouldn't drink on an empty stomach, after all. . ." he said agreeably, raising his hand in order to summon someone to serve them. The server would then appear moments after this gesture and smile. "Ah—a water for me and anything light to eat."

    The server nodded and turned to take Aeluri's order. After this had all been settled, the server left the table. Ahote smiled and turned to peer at the strange man from earlier. He was a handsome man but certainly seemed to have secrets and quirks. He didn't care to get to know him anymore, but since he was going to be in their company, he couldn't help but wonder.

    "Say," Ahote started, "we never got his name, did we? What if he ends up dying before we do? Wouldn't that be funny?" the silver-haired man grinned softly. It was a funny thought, and to be fair, Ahote never considered introducing himself either.

    ”I guess so,” Aeluri grumbled at Ahote’s comment. He was always the responsible one. Compared to herself and Iris, the silver-haired man was… well, innocent. He hadn’t drank until the night he announced the demise of Basilisk Fang. As far as the woman was aware, he had missed out on a ton of life experiences. He was squeamish to gore. Therefore, innocent in her eyes. Not to mention he was usually kind. She appreciated the man but sometimes he could be just too good.

    Whiskey burned in her stomach and it was hard to resist the temptation to head back to the bar for more. Instead, Aeluri ordered some salmon as the waiter turned to her. They were by the ocean so she figured the fish would be of good quality and cooked appropriately. That was the one thing she could appreciate about the area. Seaside dwellers were the best of chefs when it came to seafood.

    Aeluri glanced at Ahote as he made the strange query with a grin on his face. “Yeah, he didn’t introduce himself. I wonder if he ever will or if we’ll be in the dark forever.” Her companion’s comment about him dying before them set her nerves back on edge. The summoner was reminded once more of what lie ahead of them and how dangerous the depths of water were. A chill wove down her spine. “That’s not funny,” she snapped, the unnecessarily rude tone caused by her uneasiness. Immediately she regretted it, but didn’t feel like apologizing. The woman just hoped Ahote wouldn’t take it personally.

    A few minutes later, the waiter brought out their food. Aeluri didn’t even notice what her friend received as she dug right into the fish. Even as she ate she glowered. Being worried and uneasy was something she hated with a passion. It was her goal to incite these feelings in others, not to feel them herself! Each bite of salmon was chewed aggressively. All she could do was eat and wait for nighttime and hope the ground opened up and swallowed her whole before then.
