    His eyes went wide staring down at his feet, witnessing the ingenious creation that sprawled further than his eyes could see, and he had always been known for his hawk like perception. It was something that he had never conceived in all his days of dreaming, because he had never seen enough stone to make it happen.
    The ground was made out of fricken rocks! Some how they had been molded together to form paths that ran between the different buildings that he didn't dare try to study on his first day. Darataka had never been to a city before, hell he had never been outside of his thirty people village that was so far up on the mountain the clouds often got confused with the snow drifts.

    And the clothes! People wore colors and ruffles and fluffs and all sorts of crazy garb that were just as wild. Meanwhile he had arrived in a brown cloak and black robes, his left arm still in a sling.

    " That man was right... I am out of my element..." he said aloud remembering how Mythal had commented on the young man's curiousness about the world when he saw grass for the first time. Dara had marveled at the color green while poking the feathery blades of emerald as if they were dangerous and would spike through his boots. He had only ever seen blues, greys, blacks, general colors that were not bright or a thing a painter would embrace.
    Then his eyes scanned the buildings around him.
    BLAMMO, COLORS!
    "Yeah I am screwed...."

    With a sigh he made his way through the city towards the building that Shane had suggested during their voyage from his old home to the new one. The two had adopted him in to the Rune Knights after a series of unfortunate events and helped escort him back through the country that he had never been able to see. It took reasonable constraint to not dawdle and gander at every single brick and outfit, each pigeon that seemed like a falcon and the strange dialects that sailed into his ears. It would take months to adjust to all of this.
    Finally he found himself atop a high plateau, the head quarters of the Rune Knight assembly. More buildings, more colors, more craziness that he was damn near intimidated about.

    Dara just stared at his feet and kicked a small rock. Very alone, very confused...

    I can be your sugar when you're fiendin' for that sweet spot
    Put me in your mouth, baby, and eat it 'til your teeth rot
    Lilith Kadokawa




    "Ugh, why is the signal in this place so shite?" The raven-haired Rune Knight groaned desperately, holding her black and gold iLac in the air and waving it around in an attempt to send her text messaged to her friend Clara. There was supposed to be a Pool party and Rebecca Lorange's manor tonight and Lilith needed to get herself on the list. The only issue being that Rebecca's sister Liza wasn't Lilith's biggest fan after she kissed her ex at the last party she'd gone to. It shouldn't have been a big deal, they weren't together anymore and Lilith's could have done alot more but she hadn't. Even so,  apparently Liza wasn't in the forgiving mood. Clara was good friends with Liza, so if anyone had a chance of smoothing things over for Lili it was her, but not without the exchange of favours. At the moment Clara was trying to get Lili to take her dog for a week when she went on holiday next month, to wash her car and get her latest parking ticket revoked. Although the latter was a little out of the Rune Knight jurisdiction, something Clara was a little too dense to understand.

    Lili was currently in the process of negotiating with the girl, which would be going along quicker if her fricking texts would go through. Her lunch break was going to be over soon, and she really wanted to get this sorted before the end of her shift so that she could rush off to get ready once it was over. Not that today was especially exciting work day for us, she didn't have anything exciting to do, just petty crime reports. She really needed this day to liven up, or fast forward to the party so that, she could liven it up herself.

    After several moments there was a little beep that told her the message had been received, causing her to sigh with relief and lower her phone. She sighed, looking around, she wondered if she should grab a bite to eat as opposed to just waiting for Clara's reply. As she glanced around, distantly she spotted gleaming head of snow-white hair and an unfamiliar face. He seemed to be on his own, and looked a little unsure of himself, like a lost puppy. She cocked her head at the lonely-looking fellow, torn between seeing what his deal was and going to get food. After a moment her nosiness won over and she decided to approach him, striding over in her usual confident manner. As she got closer, she took him in, he was a little younger than her, a cute face, barely taller than she was. She would place her hand on her hips, before addressing him. "You need help there hun?"

    A gentle breeze lifted his hair up while he was gazing down at his feet, bringing with it the dozens of heavy scents that were unfamiliar to his existence and again he felt an overwhelming wonder and sadness within him. A quiet sigh said good bye to that wind and Darataka accepted that he must press forward and begin to learn more about the world around him.

    Just as he was about to find a place to rest, a voice called out to him and would be met by his emerald colored eyes. With all the impressions of modern world that had been overwhelming his senses like waves against a brand new shipyard, his eyes were now hit with a tidal wave that made his cheeks flush in just the slightest.
    A beautiful girl around his own age walked up to him, and he just stared for a moment blinking. He had only ever spoken to maybe fifty people in his life, and mountains in the deepest reaches of the world never really did much for looks. Perhaps Dara hadn't been paying proper attention to the new city around him, or maybe nothing had stood out before. Hopefully it was just that he was in a location he could relax in being his new home, and every other woman in Era would be equally as radiant.

    Realizing he was probably sixty seconds into staring at this girl holding some weird device, he shook his head hoping to throw off the awkwardness and cleared his throat gently. "Uhm yes miss." he said meeting her own eyes for a minute before feeling his cheeks flush again and began staring at his deer skin boots again.
    A deep breathe, and then he raised his gaze again to meet hers. "I guess I live here now."

    Gazing around, he took in the different buildings for what they each were. Barracks, armory, living quarters.
    " But where are my manners... I'm Darataka." a gentle bow of his head but not a full bow because he didn't wanna look like a total doofus. " Mythal and Shane recently brought me in... But now I have no idea what to do next. It's all so over whelming..."

    And then his stomach growled causing him to smile sheepishly.

    Lilith would unabashedly meet his stare, not missing the fact that he was staring for quite some time before he responded to her question. Her lips curled into a playful smirk, enjoying the flush that formed on his cheeks. She loved it when people blushed, it brought out teasing temptations in her. She couldn't help but want to see how deep she could make that blush go. She cocked her head at his comment about living here. Did he mean Era or the Rune Knights headquarters specifically. Lilith worked at the guild, but the idea of living at work was abhorrent to her. She much preferred the apartment she was renting nearby, it gave her a little more privacy. Privacy to do all sorts of things her colleagues might, frown upon.

    She listened as he continued to introduce himself as Darataka before mentioning two names she recognised. Mythal had been the she had met the day she decided to join, and whilst she hadn't met Shane. She'd heard of him, apparently he was one of her superiors in the Special Ops department. She would nod realising that this was in fact a new recruit that had come to live at the Rune Knights Headquarters. "Pleasure to make your acquaintance, Dara, can I call you Dara? It sound so much better on my tongue," Her eyes twinkled playfully as she emphasized the word. As she heard his stomach, she giggled, "Well, you sound like you could use feeding, I'm the same to be fair. Fancy grabbing lunch with me in the mess hall? I could give you a tour of the place after if you like." She asked, figuring it was better that waiting around for Clara's reply. Plus, if she was giving a new guy a tour, that technically counted as work right? She certainly didn't mind killing a work hour in such cute company. It seemed like a much more fun option that sitting at her desk doing paperwork. If she was lucky, she might even see a little more of that blush.

    "I'm Lili by the way," She added, she didn't really wait for his answer before stepping up beside him and linking her arm through his, ready to lead him along.

    Rubbed his forehead as if easing up the tension of his embarrassment from the stomach grumble. He hadn't eaten since the previous day, and had been living off old venison jerky since leaving his destroyed home. His escorts hadn't wanted to stop to search for game, as Darataka was more of a happy accident than a sought out recruit.

    Then Lili had wrapped her arm through his and began leading him in a direction to save him from his suffering!
    "Y-yeah sure! And Dara is fine, I wouldn't want my name to get your tongue in a knot. " he said happily being lead away, trying to put on a false confidence to veil his hunger and exhaustion. Then reading over the words in his head, he gazed around the Rune Knights HQ and tried to drink in what he was seeing. The mass of strange colors were beginning to become less circus to him, the smells and warm air a little more welcome...

    "Mess hall? Why would you want to eat where it's messy...Also what will we be hunting for Lunch?" he asked as they strode among the cobblestone. Then he realized that the comment was dumb because people had been eating food in the streets bought from small carts, and there was no game to hunt for miles due to the size of the city.
    "Er, so Lili you are one of the Rune Knights as well? What do you do for fun in your off time?"

    Dara could have asked a million questions. And probably would.

    The more he spoke, the more Lili was pleased she had chosen to approach him, he was quite the adorable little thing. A little shy and perhaps even quite pure, although she'd have to do a little more to test that theory. A tempting prospect, All her toys had bored her lately and it wasn't like joining the Rune Knights was doing much to excite her. Like Dara's eyes, she had explored these walls quite a bit in the beginning, yet she wouldn't have bothered so much had she realised just how much time she'd be spending staring at them. It had hardly been thrilling. Yet hope, as fickle as it was, remained. Just intact enough to keep her here, clinging to the possibility of some genuine excitement.

    The raven haired woman giggled at his follow-up questions as she guided him further into the Rune Knights headquarters, "Oh, so cute you are. You see, Dara, the mess hall is just a name for where we eat. It's not named so to be messy, although some of our colleagues could learn that, if you know what I mean." She said with a wink, thinking about that behemoth of a woman that was Private Calor, whose exuberant chewing made Lilith question whether she was all human or part sow. The next question a little odd, but one she quickly took in her stride, immediately putting together that wherever Dara was from, it wasn't the city. "Ah, well, here the hunting is done for us and the food presented to us fully prepared. But that's quite an interesting question. Tell me Dara, are you a hunter? What sort of things do you hunt?" She asked, her voice laced with curiosity. In a way, she was someone of a huntress herself, but what she hunted, certainly wasn't for eating. At least, not the kind of eating he was thinking of.

    "Why yes I am, quite a recent recruit myself. So I'm still somewhat getting into the swing of things." She answered earnestly, as they stepped into the Mess Hall of the Rune Knights, she would lead him over the food counters. His next question thrilled her, she ran her tongue over her teeth, wondering how to answer. "Let's see, I enjoy parties, socialising, and getting a little wild. What about you hun, what would you do for fun?" She asked as she grabbed them both a tray to put there food on, helping herself to a meal deal.

    Walking arm in arm with Lili he drank in the details of her features and listened in to the many things she spoke of, explaining the things that he would need to start to learn living in a civilized world. Every time she talked about something new she got this funny sparkle in her eyes and kind of did a hop skip, causing Dara to quicken for a step to keep pace. And the way her hair fell with that excitement was like waterfalls of chocolate cascading around her shoulders, a sight of pure beauty and curiosity to the young new wayfarer.
    "You know, eating with out concern for cleanliness might be kind of fun." the youngster thought aloud, as they made their way towards the food hall. "Nothing wrong with getting a little messy now and then ya'know?" finishing with a wink, starting to pick up on her own mannerisms. He may have been naive to the wilds of these wonderful women, but he could pick up on the vibrations of a falling snow avalanche from a mile away.

    The emerald orbs scanned the people around him as well, taking note that most of them wore similar garbs of several varients, and then it dawned on him why Mythal had suggested he go see the tailor. "Oh crap...There are uniforms..."

    Stepping into the mess hall, it was a bustling single room filled with a line to serve yourself on and many different options of meats, cheeses, sweets and.....
    "Vegetables!" his mouth dropped in half awe while listening to the lovely lady beside him, quickly snapping back to attention while loading his plate with natural foods. Back home, this shit was solid gold.

    "Oh man I've never been to a party." they shuffled along each other down the line, loading their plates. " I also like socializing, and getting a little wild, but usually in the wilds. As for hunting , the bigger the better. I like a challenge, so the occasional Mammoth is fun to take down but Steppe Cats are exciting to go toe to toe with as well. Nothing like getting the blood pumping with a few scratches on your back yeah?"

    Now loaded with foods they sat down at a table and began to pick at their plates, Darataka delicately eating the savory vegetables that were new to him, fluffy white branches of something weird. " I also enjoy exploring, sleeping under the stars, and drinking wine though. That's all there really was to do back home." shrug.

    Dara waited a few bites for them each to quell their hunger, before grinning across the table at her. "So since we are both new to the guild, we should get a party right? We -deserve- a party." Taking a bite of steamed carrots.
    " I just spent my whole life living away from the wonders of the world, and before I get to full blown work mode I'd enjoy blowing off some steam."
