    Post by Lyra Karant 18th September 2021, 9:24 pm

    Yet another beautiful day in Hargeon town-- sun shining, its rays dancing off the dazzling waves and reflecting the gorgeous blue of the ocean. Seabirds cawed as they flapped in flocks, adding to the ambiance and proving a reminder that, yes, you were absolutely by the sea. This was a gorgeous place, if it wasn’t being attacked by sea monsters or anything like that.

    Lyra knew, in the back of her head, that she was here to do a job. However, she couldn’t help but wish that she had the time to take in the sights, enjoy the local food and relax. But, no. She had work to do. She’d booked her train ticket for two days so that she could force herself to get this job done as quickly and efficiently as possible; one day to track down the culprit that she was targeting, and a second day to deal with him. There wasn’t going to be any messing around. Besides, more importantly than that, she had a purpose here; she’d contacted one of her old friends, who she absolutely knew could help her take on this mission. Even to this day, having awakened her powers, Lyra was not confident in her capability to fight. So she’d called a friend who could. Rela was, in short, way better at fighting that she was. Lyra tried her best, but she hadn’t quite gotten her head around it. Why not ask someone who could do it, right? Besides, splitting the money wasn’t a bad idea. If it was enough incentive to get help to solve a problem, she’d take it. Besides, Lyra hadn’t seen Rela in a few years. It was a good time to catch up.

    She’d called ahead, organised for them to meet up at a local restaurant at noon, and left it at that.

    Unwittingly, Lyra had spent her time in the restaurant just sitting. Punctual as ever, she’d arrived half an hour early, but decided that it would be a fun way to pass the time sitting there playing on her iLac and keeping her mind amused. Finding a killer wasn’t going to be easy for her to shift into doing without thinking. Even as a Rose, this was her first real time experiencing something like this. How she’d come through it, if at all, was still a reality that she hadn’t considered.

    Getting cold feet, kid?

    “No,” the girl whispered, considering her next words carefully - she had to keep the volume down. Nobody needed to know that she was talking to herself. “Nervous, maybe.”

    You’ll be fine. Find this guy, take him down-- subdue him and take his ability to fight back away-- and then leave it at that. It’s all you need to do.

    Without so much as an acknowledgement of the voice in her head, she looked back down at her device. It was almost time. Her heart kept skipping beats - the closer the time got, the closer this all was to being real.

    The sun shone brightly on this cloudless day, and it was positively dreadful

    Rela decided, in her moment of obvious merry reflection, she missed the rain. Despite her distaste, she walked at a slow pace. Not to admire her surroundings as she made her way through Hargeon Town – though by no means she didn’t find it pleasant enough; if anything, only a sharp contrast to the barren lands and harsh wilderness she had come accustomed to. Traveling played a large part in many of her jobs. Fierce winters, scorching summers, deserts and wastelands, lands rifled with danger of animals and humans alike. No, returning to this quaint town did not bother her.

    It was who had contacted her that prompted her return.

    While not opposed to the prospect of pocketing extra coin, Rela wasn’t exactly thrilled. Hesitant, perhaps. She’d just returned from a lengthy job. Good money and the target certainly gave a thrilling chase before falling to her blade. The reward was handsome enough to keep her content for a little while. Long enough where she intended to return to her primary residence for some time and relax. Or, as much of a residence it could be. Still, a job’s a job. Her blade’s thirst for blood was quenched for the time being and she had no quarrels turning down the offer, but the price was just right. And she couldn’t resist the plea.

    She had considered milking out that plea. Tempting, very tempting. She knew Lyra, though, and it’d be a very pitiful thing to hear that would have not been satisfactory.

    Ah, Lyra. Sweet Lyra. Skilled, but too...good. Pure. The job was a bad idea waiting for chaos to erupt, and Rela fully expected some sort of altercation between them. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time. Like many times before her arrival, she wondered why she agreed in the first place. Money and a potential chance of blood shed. A hard offer to refuse for a former assassin.

    Rela entered their agreed meeting place: a restaurant. A rather open area to discuss certain matters. One not to judge, as she is absolutely guilty of many questionable decisions, she shrugged it off and scanned the room. She spotted the familiar head of pink hair, and, rolling her shoulders, made her way over to the table.

    Lyra.”

    Oh, shit.

    That thought in the back of her mind was enough to perk up Lyra’s ears from the reverie that she found herself in; the iLac was an unfortunately addictive device, and it had stolen all of her attention. And, truth told, her ability to pay attention to her surroundings. That was going to be a problem in the future, inevitably.

    “What’s wrong?” came the reply, almost imperceptibly silent.

    You can’t sense that? That… that murderous intent, that callous indifference? It’s… chilling.

    Whatever it was, it was enough to spook Rhett beyond belief, which was… unusual, to say the least. There was very little that rattled him, but generally speaking it was a sense that she wasn’t about to ignore. Such being the case, Lyra looked up and cast a quick glance around the room, only to find a single person having just entered. Yeah, there was absolutely no mistaking that particular visage. Rela and Lyra had… differences in their opinions, to say the least. However, it was incredibly telling that she’d turned up to this request when she could have easily said no. Whether it was the promise of jewels, camaraderie or just curiosity, Lyra was not about to say no to the fact that she had someone coming that knew what they were doing.

    And cue an inevitable freakout. Silently, behind closed doors, the tempest raged against its bindings.

    Y...you’re kidding me right now.

    “Rela! Thank you for coming.” Lyra sounded positively cheerful by contrast, indicating the seat across from her. “If you’d like something to eat or drink, please, it’s on me. It’s the least I can do.”

    Lyra, what in the nine hells are you doing? How do you know this woman?

    It took Lyra every ounce of willpower not to respond to the voice in her head, and to those perceptive enough, there was just the tiniest shift in her demeanour for a moment as she bit down the reflex to respond to Rhett. The iLac was returned to its pocket, certainly to be left there. It was rude to ignore your company, after all.

    Lyra, what have you done?!

    The tempest went ignored.

    Rela raised an eyebrow. Pleasantries were not her expertise. She preferred cutting to the chase and get things over with. Especially with this. Being beckoned with the promise of money while on her vacation set a taste of bitterness that still lingered. For all the qualities Lyra possessed – a cheerful demeanor, kindness, overall goodness, which Rela silently gagged at that word, the girl had her own strengths and capabilities, and common sense. If she required help, specifically hers, then a grand ole time was to be had. She wished to dive in the details immediately, but, Lyra had made the call, and so they would do it her way.

    No. I’m fine,” Rela said, easing into the chair across from her…companion. She made it a personal rule to never accept anything consumable from anyone, not even from her own allies or trustworthy enough people. If she couldn’t see what was being made, then she had no interest. She’d find her own food and beverage.

    She leaned back in the chair, locked her fingers together and rested them over her stomach, and observed Lyra.

    Not much has changed in the last two years. Same face, flawless and…cute. Same smile, bright and no end in sight, and overall disgusting as Rela last remembered. Same questionable clothing with the same bright and annoying color. She supposed she should be glad for that, knowing she hasn’t endured any terrible hardships or physically mauling marks. The girl still could use some toughening up, though.

    I see you still favor pink,” Rela drawled out, a slight snicker to her tone. Amused as she was, the glimmer in Lyra’s eyes made her tilt her head and observe her even more. A flicker, writhing beneath the surface. Tension, nerves swimming around like a shark circling its prey, waiting to snap its teeth in her leg and pull her down.

    Rela sighed and lifted a leg onto the table, ignoring the glares she received. "Dear girl, you have already forgotten our lessons. Your tension is so loud your enemies will hear it miles away.”

    “Pink is entirely aesthetically pleasing and tasteful,” the fire mage commented with a smile,

    Unfortunately, it was made so blatantly clear that Rela carried the same unfortunate disdain that she had for so long. It was almost sad, in its own way. It had to be such an incredible burden to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. In Rela’s case, Lyra knew it was the weight of war, of death, of selling your soul for the kind of power that had come to her-- the kind of strength that she had. The assassin carried herself in such a way that it was clear that it was difficult to cross her.

    Besides, Lyra knew that feeling now. Selling your soul for power… wasn’t that exactly what she’d done? If Rela knew how similar they were, she would have choked on her words, and hated every bleeding moment of it.

    “A lot has happened since last we met,” Lyra said, eyes falling down to the table in front of her as she considered just what to tell her new battle companion. Probably little, which was for the best. It was, however, entirely evident with an ever so slight shift in her tone that there was a burden that the rosebud carried. Knowledge was a weapon that Rela was unafraid to use, in the exact same way as someone twisted the assassin’s blade deep into the body, between the ribs, to twist - crack the ribs, force the enemy to bleed out with a wound so great that no suture could close it.

    From Rela, Lyra would have barely bat an eyelid at that action.

    She’s already getting to you, Lyra. I heard that.

    Her eyes darted up reflexively to meet the gaze of her friend. Lyra couldn’t show this. At all, ever. It was not a secret she possessed willingly, after all, and something that most minds probably couldn’t comprehend; how could she even begin to explain it anyway? Lyra could not. She would not. As long as the issue was not pressed.

    “However, out of respect for your want for punctuality and efficiency, I don’t want to waste your time. Here.”

    Her iLac was extracted, the screen brimming with the information of the job that she had accepted. It outlaid everything about the string of murders in Hargeon, plus the basic details of the culprit involved - as well as a warning that he was to be considered heavily armed and highly dangerous. Which, in reality, was exactly what her ersatz friend would have called a good day.

    “I thought we could ask the local authorities for all of the latest information on our target, then track and subdue him. Is that okay?”

    Aesthetically pleasing. Tasteful.

    Rela wrinkled her nose in disgust. She had a different opinion on her strongly misguided conclusion. She found it proved to be rather difficult to believe, based on personal knowledge and past experiences, that pink-haired who quite possibly came from a donation pile had picked up a job requiring an assassin’s assistance. That type of assistance silently said more than what Lyra had spoken at the time of her call. The job was dangerous with the need for finesse and well thought out plan, and to be prepared to spill blood. Although... to the girl’s credit, she barely made a sound other than a loud squeak when she beheaded a fugitive on the lose during their first job together, which was more than Rela could say for any other goody two shoes. Granted, that was an unfortunately miscalculated error.

    To each their own, she supposed.

    A snort tickled her throat. Rela suppressed it as she silently accepted the iLac, though she did raise an eyebrow. Change. A word used so frequently and yet no one ever knew the true meaning of the word. As far as her eyes could see, and she not only had excellent vision but also a keen skill in observing, there was no change to be seen in Lyra. She had an entirely different opinion than the girl across from her and would have gladly voiced it, but considering a large part of her didn’t even want to be here, she let it pass this time. She’d have ample time to provide feedback. The sooner they got through this meeting, the sooner they could separate, and the sooner Rela can collect her coin and finally have that well deserved vacation – if she agreed to the job, that is. If not…well, she’d be home a lot sooner than anticipated.

    Going to the authorities is not necessary. I can pick up any trail if their last whereabouts is known,” Rela said as she looked at the screen. “Besides, I doubt they would be thrilled to see me in their precious town, and I share the sentiment.”

    WANTED: Former Hargeon miner for a string of gruesome murders.

    6’5 tall. Over 300 pounds. He carries a large meat cleaver, a carving knife, and a nasty meat hook on a chain. No magic but is incredibly strong, frighteningly brutal, and smarter than he may look.


    Rela raised her eyes over the iLac at Lyra. Again, she raised an eyebrow, a skeptical twinkle in her eye. “This is a gruesome case. Are you sure you can handle it?

    Lyra Karant
    On The Hunt


    It was blatantly clear to the slayer that there was nothing but disdain left in Rela, which was… an utter shame. That snort - meant to be imperceptible - was rendered as loud as a bell to Lyra’s slayer senses. Things that once might have escaped her notice no longer did, which was both a blessing and a curse. In this case, it was a curse. The rose had come today in the hopes that she would find even a modicum of mutual cooperation in order to achieve a goal. There was no expectation that Rela would perform this job for good reasons; it was a job, and that was it. Lyra was not stupid, though perhaps she knew a little naive. She was here for the good of the people, and that was enough for her; if she had decided to chase strength for her own sake, she would have joined Fairy Tail or another of the neutral guilds. However, she was pledged to the cause of good. There was nothing else to it.

    Did it sting to hear it? Yes, it did. But Lyra could turn the other cheek.

    ”You might never believe this about me,” came the quiet-toned reply, full of a shocking choice of emotion: regret. ”But whether I am able to handle it is irrelevant. I have to do this whether I’m ready or not.”

    If change in Lyra was so unbelievable, let that be proof - undeniable proof that she would absolutely, unerringly not shy away from the morally-correct execution of justice. Even the authorities had approved death here, which was… surprising. Lyra knew in her heart that Rela had already chosen that course of action, as a matter of pragmatism; execute the target so they could not get up and pose a further threat. It was unfortunate. Most people had a chance at rehabilitation, and it was yet to be seen if this criminal did. Now, with Lyra and Rela on this case, he would never know that freedom.

    She tilted her head down at the thought. Had she given up so soon, or had she already accepted that Rela’s will was stronger?

    An irony: Lyra was being judged for not changing, and yet Rela herself was nothing but static. A stone in an eternal river rushing right by them both in the thing called life.

    Emerald eyes darted back up.

    ”Then let’s begin?”

    Lyra was right about one thing – she didn’t believe her.

    Not that it mattered. Rela had opinions and Lyra had her own, and that is the most they’ll be able agree on. Whatever happened to her acquaintance was of no concern. If she said she’s capable, despite Rela’s own doubts, then it had to be enough. Worst case scenario, the girl will chicken out and she would get to take the full payment for the job.

    Rela looked back at the iLac. “It says his last known whereabouts were at an abandoned warehouse at the southern end of the port. We’ll start from there. People on the run will flee to their comfort zone. If there’s any evidence of his past or recent presence, it will be there.

    Rela placed the iLac on the table, stood up, and headed straight for the door. She didn’t bother to wait for Lyra.

    Lyra Karant
    On The Hunt


    "Right. Let's go."

    With that, Lyra stood up and went with her compatriot outside, to follow the clues that were left. It was hilariously obvious to Lyra that Rela didn't exactly think much of her presence here. The sad thing was, Lyra didn't either. She knew for a fact that she wasn't a fighter, barely had it in her and was mostly good for helping others. However, that fact right there was how Lyra intended to make this happen - she was going to be there, support Rela, help her fight better, and leave it at that. If anything, she was a wonderfully good support caster and would do her best possible job doing so, even if the assassin wanted nothing to do with that.

    A few minutes later, they arrived at the abandoned warehouse. It certainly was big. And, well, abandoned. It definitely lived up to its name.

    Unhesitatingly, Lyra went first and opened the door. She wasn't about to wait for this to happen, and besides, going first meant that she could put the spotlight on herself and draw attention away from someone who inevitably wanted to attack from the shadows or something along those lines. It was a reasonable strategy that had been communicated on the way over to the building.

    There he was; a hulk of a man, hair thinning, and easily over six foot tall with bulks of pure muscle. Lyra couldn't hope to beat him in a straight fight - but Rela could. And, with the help of the rose-haired girl, would likely have an easy time of it too.

    "Another one?" he asked, and jerked a thumb over at a pile of bodies. Some of them were covered in blood, others appeared unconscious; fresh victims of the proverbial meat grinder. Actually, given the meat hook in his hand, it probably wasn't proverbial any more. He was going to have to be brought down. The withering gaze of the powerful man was sufficient to break Lyra's resolve just that little bit. But she held fast.

    Quiet words, magical whispers; enough to make Rela's blades hit with such force that she would be able to hurt this man if needed. Wherever she was.

    "You are far too dangerous," commented the rose, but barely made another move regardless. Her play was to be the distraction.

    "This is what we are going to do," Rela said once they arrived at the abandoned warehouse. She gave the area a quick once over as she slipped on her black leather gloves. She never went to battle without them. They were a strong indicator she expected the fight to be messy. “I saw a window in the back. We’re going to slip inside and we’re going to check this place out. If he is there, you will stay far back with your magic while I face him. I don’t need you in your blissful ignorance to –“
    Rela turned to face her companion, only to find her nowhere in sight.

    “…Lyra?”

    A creak brought Rela’s attention to the front of the warehouse. The door was wide open.

    “Damn it, Lyra,” she sighed. With no other choice left, she discarded the plan and ran inside.

    That is where she found Lyra: standing face to face with the murderer. Stupid girl. Brave, Rela would give her that, but stupid. She wasn’t oblivious to the pile of bodies behind the burly man. For once the authorities did not exaggerate their description of the person. Nor the weapon. Rela took a silent note on the mean looking hook in his hand and reminded herself to take that with her as a souvenir when the job was done. That could be quite handy in her next job, and possibly make it more fun.
    With Lyra in the face of danger, and possibly death itself, and with Rela’s cleverly crafted plan now useless, she did the only thing she could think of.

    She threw a nearby rock at his chest. It did absolutely no damage.

    “Eyes on me, big boy,” Rela called. She grinned when his gaze shifted to hers. “I have a large sum of gold on my person with your name on it. Come and get it.”

    The taunt worked. He charged forward, and Rela quickly ducked out of the way. She withdrew her dagger and jammed it into his back. He didn’t make a sound. She thought that was the end of it and yanked on the weapon to pull it out and let him bleed out, if he wasn’t dead already, but the dagger wouldn’t budge. It was stuck.

    The dagger was stuck in the burly man’s back.

    To Rela’s surprise, he turned around. Alive. Grinning at her. She hardly did any damage.
    “Oh, fu—”

    A single sweep of his arm threw Rela across the room and on her back. Pain shot down her shoulders and all the way down her left leg. Her anger burned more than the pain. There were two things that Rela hated more than people itself – to lose and to be hit, and she never loses. He was already charging for her again. For a whale, he was fast. Time for a new plan. She scrambled to her feet, ignoring the sharp ache protesting in her body, and withdrew the sword sheathed on her back. Good thing she put on her gloves.

    Rela swiped her sword against his throat, and that was the end of it as he dropped to the floor with a loud thud.

    Lyra Karant
    On The Hunt


    And with that, Lyra watched Rela systematically dismantle a man. First the blade into his spine, then eventually the sword across his throat. It was an inevitability that Rela would kill a man, for that was her modus operandi. She did not hesitate to kill, to slay her foes. It was a despicable thing, to be able to take a life. Lyra could not do such a thing in good conscience - taking a life was a permanent scar on the psyche that could not be healed away.

    Emerald eyes locked on to the bleeding corpse with little more than regret; there was a sad truth to be found here, that she could not look away from the necessity of the murder. Had he been dangerous? Absolutely. Had he been willing to attack either of them? Definitely. Could he have killed them? Well, Lyra, yes. Rela, possibly not. But he had hurt others. He had done considerable damage to the local populace. In this situation, the assassin would have simply done her job. She would have taken this with no hesitation and looked at this with little more than dispassion.

    The rose mage shook her head. This was not her.

    "Thanks," she said meekly. Having to be rescued was not an ideal situation. "I think you have most certainly earned the reward. Come on. Let's go report this before..."

    There were no words left for Lyra; she did not know what to say or how to articulate it any more. This just... she could not shake the sight of a dead man, freshly murdered before her eyes, from her mind. This was not the way she'd intended today to go, but... perhaps in the back of her mind she should have expected this, all things considered. Rela was dangerous. There was no doubting that. Not only because of her technical skills with a blade, but the sheer fact that she was also a highly trained assassin. With that in mind, she had to have known that this man's death was an inevitability somehow. Was that a fact she'd relegated to the back of her mind? Was Lyra complicit in this death? Well, of course she was. She enabled it.

    Gods, she was disappointed in herself.

    Wordlessly, she turned and left the scene. Rela would have been able to detect her disappointment and shame; likely she reveled in that fact. However, it could not be understated just how terrible she felt about all of this. Later, it would be time for reflection. Perhaps later she could address this with someone she considered a friend.

    But how far did that friendship really go?
