Quest: Escort Services
Teresa was just lying cosily in bed, wrapped several times in her warm blankets. Her head was firmly dug into the soft pillow and her fat cat Awol was resting comfortably at her feet, only waking up occasionally to randomly attack her toes. She was used to that by now, so she tended to go to bed with thick socks on and being careful never to expose any flesh by accident. It had only been a few days since she had joined Silver Wolf, but already she was getting quite comfortable. She had found a nice place to live, made a few friends and the bar was quite good. The booze was above acceptable and the food was very doable. Best of all though was the activity. No matter the time of the day the guild was always busy and active.
She was just dreaming about the handsome warrior always loitering in the corner, flexing those beautiful muscles, when a loud noise woke her up from her dream. The knock was so loud the door croaked in it’s hinges and Teresa shot up so fast Awol was launched from the bed in terror.
Before the cat could land the door split in half with a bang and debris flew through the room. Instinctively she raised her hand and ‘shot’ a quick barrier around Awol to prevent it from getting hurt. She was too late to defend herself properly, but her passive barrier caught the most of it and aside from a few scratches she was fine. A few drops of blood ran from her face and into the corner of her mouth. A smile appeared on her face as she quickly licked her lips, tasting the iron in her own blood. “Hmmm I think I need to start eating more spinach.” She said with a grin to herself, trying to intimidate whoever was coming. She was a fifteen hundred year old witch with power to spare and immortality to boot. There was not really anyone she was afraid of.
“Comon! Show yourself you Ba— aahhhh Hectroi… ehh please come in.” She said with a broken voice as all the fight went out of her.
“Ah so glad you still remember me after all these years Teresa. I heard you nowadays went by the nickname of the faint smile. Guess a lot can change in a few hundred years.” The black hair man said as he walked into the room, followed by two menacing henchman.
“Y-yeahh. I’m guessing though you are not here to free me of my debt I am guessing.” Teresa said with a slight stutter in her voice as she was trying to gauge them. The two henchman were strong, wizard saint class easily, but they did not even compare to Hectroi. In fact she could not even begin to sense the depth of his power. It was like standing up close in front of a gigantic and trying to see how deep it was.
“You know me better then that little one.” Hectroi said with a devious smile as he grasped her chin and pushed it up a bit so she was forced to look him in the eyes. “Now if I recall you owe me two thousand jewels, plus one point three million jewels of compound interest.” He continued as he squeezed roughly in Teresa’s chin.
She bit her tongue to prevent her from letting out a noise. She was simply to proud to give him the satisfaction.
