Aiden walked softly through the streets of Era, timidly looking around everywhere. Whenever someone made eye contact, he would greet them with a gentle smile before looking down. The truth was he was a little nervous as today was the day, he would take a step towards his goal of creating a peaceful world. The truth was also that he was a little scared of introducing himself in what he assumed would be an application. He didn’t exactly know what to say on those kind of things as he hadn’t really accomplished anything yet aside from taking over his fathers’ company, which isn’t something that would apply in this situation.
His goal was to join the Rune Knights.
As he pondered what he would say when he got to the headquarters, he started to get even more nervous. “How about I just do it tomorrow…” he thought to himself before turning around and walking away, a bit disappointed in himself that he was able to give up that easily. He was too caught up in himself to notice the events that were about to happen to him.
First, a scream happened, something about a bag. Following that were the rapid footsteps of a group of people running his direction. Finally, he looked up to see a man running with a bag, two people who were in Rune Knight Uniforms and a woman crying behind them. Then it hit him that they were coming right at him, the man not seeing Aiden directly in front of him as he was focused on the soldiers. In a panicked frenzy Aiden quickly put his hands out in front of him, causing a collision between him and the thief, both falling to the ground with a loud thud.
The Rune Knights arrested the man and made sure that Aiden was okay before everything was back to the way it was before, only Aiden had changed a little. He closed his eyes, took a deep breath, and released a long exhale. He nodded to himself and turned back towards the HQ, heading in the direction again.
He climbed up the steps slowly, obviously still a bit nervous in his unfamiliar surroundings. When he reached the entrance, he entered slowly and quietly. His hands were shaking a bit as he approached the front desk “Hello. I would like to join the Rune Knights please…” he spoke softly and looked down slightly so that he wouldn’t make eye contact, his face a little red with embarrassment.
