Chugga, chugga, chugga, chugga. . .
The sound of an old-fashioned steam engine train rumbled throughout Sakuramori. A steam engine was a more uncommon sort of train one might see in Fiore, reminding its citizens of a more archaic time. It seemed archaic compared to all of the magic-powered vehicles in modern society, but many other countries on Earthland still used them. It might've just been Fiore that seemed ahead of their time. The train might've been old-fashioned, but it was never boycotted or avoided. It still took its passengers from one point to the next, and so people continued to ride them as they would any other train. And like all other trains, there was hardly any activity within them at such an early hour, there only being six men seated at various spots.
Among those men were two Rune Knights dressed in their regal black—one with short, messy red hair and the other with silvery-white hair and a far more refined appearance in comparison. The redheaded Knight had deep, large bags underneath his eyes that made him look like he had been sleep deprived for weeks. He wasn't, and always found time to sleep. In fact, he would've been asleep now if not for a far more burdensome subject hanging over him like a weight. They were headed deep into Sakuramori for a standard missing-person mission, but Doppo was seldom giving it any thought at that moment.
". . . You know, Joe," Doppo began in his usual quietness, staring at his lap, "sexual. . . preference. . . is such a big topic nowadays. . . especially for guys as young as you. . ." he continued. Doppo was normally very blunt about these things, and still is, but made some sort of attempt to ease into the subject instead of dropping it on his junior.
