    A peace treaty, huh? Aliarey wasn't sure whether she was amused with the idea or just plain ol' didn't care. Politics went over her head, and it was often a dull topic to her anyway. She supposed peace was good and all but was it really going to be so simple as signing a piece of paper? Armies would come to a sudden halt at the impressive mystical powers of signatures? Granted Pergrande sure got its ass kicked if the news report from a while ago had the numbers right. It was a big country though. Rich too. Those it lost were probably just a drop in the bucket compared to what they had left hanging out at home. It made Alia suspicious. Not because she was smart and or had any knowledge of anything behind the scenes. Maybe Pergrande was really a country full of wimps that recognized being put in their place as losers. She didn't know. She just had a bad feeling, and she learned a long time ago to not ignore it completely.

    Well, regardless of whatever was going on with the whole treaty thing she still found a way to be a part of the whole world-changing event. The Ishgar Symposium needed some mages to play security. That meant there was a job opening. That meant it paid. That meant she would have more jewels to play with at the end of it all, just like she did with the war between Bellum and Pergrande. She took it instantly because why not? It was just a job to patrol the city and make sure things stayed safe and orderly. Easy peasy compared to the actual war, and she certainly got off easy with that too. There was nothing to tell her not to be confident and secure with her choice. What was the worst that could happen? It was Joya. Whatever happened in Joya? Besides the current event that wanted to bring some peace to the continent. That was her line of thinking before arriving for her new temporary job assignment.

    Now, after barely even being in Felidae City for a lengthy period of time, Alia could tell that the tension was thick. Chaotic even. She didn't particularly like it. The sights of the city itself weren't enough of a distraction from everything else going on. There were some that supported the treaty, yes, but strangely there were also those that were completely against it. When those two sides clashed it wasn't exactly the most pleasant of conversations to listen to. Alia kept her normally loud mouth shut. She didn't care either way and she had a feeling she'd only make things worse if she said as much. There wasn't anything violent going on so it wasn't as if the security patroller label required her to act in that instance. Besides, she would rather have her patrol partner with her. Diana.

    Before even taking the job Aliarey had contacted Diana via iLac to see if she would come too. Aliarey liked jewels and she originally thought nothing could go wrong when taking the job, but she wasn't entirely stupid. She wasn't going into some random country and putting a target on herself alone. Someone was coming with her. Hence Diana was brought in as backup. Or maybe Diana had always intended to join the patrol all along. Alia didn't know. Alia didn't ask. She was just going to think what she wanted and say Diana was the mega strong backup for the "just in case" scenario.

    Speaking of Diana, how was she going to find Aliarey in that huge busy city? Because of the whole treaty thing the streets were even more crowded than they likely were on any normal day. Aliarey had already kind of started walking the streets and found herself in some kind of marketplace. They hadn't exactly planned a meeting point beforehand. Mostly because Alia didn't know a thing about the city to even give a landmark. Details. Heh. She supposed that the best thing to do was at least attempt to communicate another way. With a solution in mind, Aliarey took out her iLac and went into her messages to make a new one.

    Hey! Things are kind of tense in this place. Are you here yet?

    Boom. They'd message each other until they found one another. Brilliant! Message sent.

    -Felidae City, Joya-

    Diana had entered Felidae City roughly fifteen minutes ago and felt like she had just finished a marathon. The trip from Fiore to Joya had been a long one and she had covered it all on foot. As a result the green-eyed blonde was not feeling very chipper, but she would recover enough to do the job which she had been hired for today.

    That job?

    She was going to be a temporary part of the Felidae City Patrol for a historic occasion.

    That occasion was the Ishgar Symposium for Peace. Today Bellum and Pergrande were supposed to sign a peace treaty that put an official end to the recent conflict between the two countries. Diana was genuinely surprised by the announcement that the two countries were looking to make peace with one another. She thought that the hostilities between the two countries would linger on for months, if not years, but here they were looking to make peace.

    According to news reports she had seen on the new television she had finally bought for her home only days ago, Pergrande had gotten a bloody nose in the border clash. Diana was among the many mages who had fought for Bellum, so she had done her part to give Pergrande a bloody nose. As both a mage from Bellum and a participant in the border clash Diana should have been ecstatic about the possibility of peace, but she had serious doubts that the treaty would last very long once it was signed.

    However, worrying about whether the treaty would last was not what Diana was being paid to do today. She was being paid to help keep the peace in Felidae City, the atmosphere of which was so tense that the tension could be cut with a knife. Groups both for the treaty and against the treaty were out in force and were not shy about making their opinions known to anyone within earshot. Diana barely looked at the groups and instead focused on the palpable tension in the city. She had felt that same "calm before the storm" sensation just before she had fought against Pergrande's forces in the border clash.

    Wearing her purple short-sleeved t-shirt with black skirt, white thigh-high stockings, and black tennis shoes, Diana looked more like a tourist than a temporary peacekeeper, but the backpack of supplies on her back and Saint Sinner Valentine slung on her right shoulder made it clear that she was not here to go sightseeing.

    Diana had considered leaving Saint Sinner Valentine at home to avoid raising tensions even higher by carrying a weapon in public, but not knowing what enemies she might run into today made her decide to bring it along despite the risk. The weapon offered her a wide range of ammunition choices with different properties that she could switch to on the fly. She had access to normal ammunition for ordinary opponents, Armor-Piercing Bullets for use against armored opponents, Silver Bullets for use against spirits, Anti-Mage Bullets for use against mages, and even less-than-lethal Heart Bean Bags in case she was instructed to limit the use of lethal force.

    In fact she had taken the precaution of loading Saint Sinner Valentine with the Heart Bean Bags in case someone tried to steal the weapon from her and either use it against her or use it to disturb the peace. If a troublemaker managed to steal the weapon the first magazine it fired would be full of less-than-lethal rounds; that precaution would give Diana time to deal with the troublemaker and take back the weapon before anyone got seriously hurt. The versatile ammunition choices was why Diana had decided to carry the weapon with her. Having a weapon with access to different types of special ammunition for use against different types of opponents was never a bad thing to have.

    Diana heard the iLac in her right pocket go off and she reached into her pocket and pulled the device out. She swiped the screen and learned that Aliarey had sent her a message. It was a short one asking if she had arrived in Felidae City yet.

    Diana moved off to the side of the street she was on to avoid blocking foot traffic and rapidly typed out her response.

    "Yes, Aliarey. I am in Felidae City." Diana typed out the response and sent it. She was not sure how exactly she was going to find her partner in a timely fashion, but the two of them would work something out. Besides, the two blondes had an uncanny way of running into one another no matter how improbable their meeting was. They might end up finding one another before they had to resort to making fancy plans.

    Aliarey stared at the iLac screen, taking her eyes off of it only to make sure she didn't run into anything or anyone as she walked. Diana's response to her message came quick. A large grin formed on her face as she read the short reply. Thank god! It was getting dull patrolling on her own. And... honestly kind of dangerous. She wanted support before things snapped, which hey, was bound to happen eventually. Money could have been made off a bet if there was a stand around for that sort of thing.

    Aliarey stopped walking and leaned her back against the wall of a small building. One of many that acted as borders to the marketplace. She began to type out her response. 'Sweet! We should probably find a way to meet up. I'm in some kind of marketplace. I think maybe the main one? It's freaking huge. Where are you at? Is there a landmark I can track?' The thought did occur to her to use either her summons or even Scout to find Diana, but the city was way too big for that. Finding one person in that mess of a crowded city would be like finding a needle in a haystack, and the last time she tried that it didn't go over very well. She needed something more to follow. Something larger. Maybe a statue or type of building that was unique.

    After sending that message Aliarey continued to play around on her iLac while waiting for a reply. There wasn't anything too interesting there. Just some apps and re-reading some messages from Trey and Professor Otto. She doubted there'd be enough time to start up a game so she passed over all of the game apps. To others around her, she seemed distracted enough. That was when a trio of Joyans came running past her and stopping at the corner of an alleyway path that led to a different sector of the city.

    One began to talk before being shushed by another. "Shhh, quiet! People will hear you!" They all looked around to make sure no one was noticing them. Aliarey barely gave them a glance when they ran past, but her ears were catching the conversation. Or as much as she could with their whispers. She wasn't a being of super hearing nor was she a slayer. "Is it true though? Are the rebels really here?"
    "That's what I heard. It gets worse though. They're not here to just protest the treaty. Rumor is they're bringing a bomb to the city!"
    "What?! That's crazy! They'll hurt people that aren't even involved!"
    "They are dangerous, but maybe they have a point. This whole treaty business doesn't sit right with me. Joya should have never gotten involved. Now at what's happening."
    "We should get out of the city while we can."
    "Shouldn't we tell someone?"
    "If they're already here there's no time. The bomb might already even be set to go off. We have our own skins to think about. Come on!"

    And that was that. The trio scuttled off down the alley. They clearly weren't interested in putting a stop to their kin. Not at the expense of their own lives. Honestly? Neither was Aliarey. A bomb was extreme. She was fairly certain she couldn't survive the blast of one even with the magic of the Draovis core. It was never put to the test. If there really was one around it needed to be found quickly. Maybe there was even time before it was set. The Joyan trio was just acting based on the rumors they heard throughout the city.

    'Diana, I just heard some rumor going around about some rebels and a bomb. I'm not sure if it's true but we got a problem on our hands if it is. See if you can find out anything.'

    After sending her message to Aliarey the green-eyed blonde clutched her iLac in her right hand and started moving again so that she did not hold up pedestrians. Diana walked and looked around her at the new place she was in. Despite her not being here for tourism the blonde could not help but to look all around her and feel a sense of curiosity at her surroundings.

    She had never been to Joya before. She had only the faintest idea that the country existed and she knew next to nothing about it. Her thoughts were interrupted by the arrival of another text message. She walked off to the side of the street and stopped against a wall after making sure that she was not cutting in front of anyone. Once she had stopped Diana opened the text message screen and read the new message from her friend.

    The message started off by stating that the pair should try to meet up soon. Aliarey then informed Diana that the former was currently standing in a large marketplace. After that Aliarey asked where in Felidae City Diana was before inquiring if there was a landmark that the blue-eyed blonde could use as a reference point to locate Diana.

    Diana looked up from her iLac screen and looked around her for any distinctive buildings or landmarks. She was not seeing any right away because of her location... standing next to a wall was not conducive to learning the lay of the land. Recognizing what she needed to do, Diana held onto the iLac as she started walking again and began looking around for anything distinctive that she could tell Aliarey about.

    The green-eyed blonde's search was not going very well. All of the buildings looked the same and she could not see any statues, any signs, or anything else that stood out in the area. Diana continued to walk and look and was coming up with nothing, so she decided to ask Aliarey to describe the "marketplace" in a little more detail.

    "Aliarey, what does this marketplace you are in look like? Is there anything special about it like a statue, its location, anything like that?" Diana asked her friend through a text message. She had barely sent that message when a new one had come in. Diana wasted no time in opening up and reading it. What she saw was deeply worrying.

    Aliarey had sent the message to warn her about a rumor she had happened to overhear. That rumor involved rebels and a bomb. Aliarey was not sure if the rumor was true or just hearsay being passed around by excitable locals, but she impressed upon Diana the dire nature of the threat should there be any truth to what she had overheard. Aliarey then ended the message by tasking Diana with finding out what she could about the threat.

    Diana frowned.

    Not only was she lost in an unfamiliar city, she had just been tasked with determining the truth behind the rumor of an explosive being somewhere in the city.

    "I will see what I can find out." Diana dashed off a quick message to Aliarey. Once it was sent she lowered the device and continued her walk through the city with a new objective. In addition to finding Aliarey she also had to keep an ear out for anything that might substantiate the rumor. That was going to be quite the challenge.

    Diana walked along and did her best to listen for any loose talk. She was not sure if the locals would talk freely in the presence of an armed stranger, so she tried to look less threatening by acting like a lost tourist. That would not be too hard because she was genuinely lost.

    Post by Aliarey Casady 2nd December 2021, 3:06 am

    Aliarey stared at her phone screen after sending her message asking Diana for some details on her location. A new message had popped up. Way too fast for it to already be a reply for the one she had just sent. She swiped her finger across the screen to open the message and resisted the urge to facepalm after she had read it. Diana had asked her pretty much exactly the same thing she had asked her! They were still nowhere closer to finding out where the other was in that huge city. She had asked it first so technically shouldn't have Diana been the one obligated to answer? "Are you kidding me? Ugh, Diana, Diana. I swear." She was agitated now, but she'd get over it by the time she found her friend. She'd have to. Else Diana's glare might just disintegrate her on the spot if she got on her nerves too much. The next reply came in before she could answer the question. Good. They were now on the same page and on alert for anything suspicious.

    'I think it's the main one in the central city. There's a waterfall here, but I can't really call that very unique. I've run into at least three.' Aliarey lifted her gaze from the iLac screen, her cerulean eyes scanning for anything that stood out. She found one. 'Ask someone where they can find Joyan Tea Party. I think it's some kind of tea shop. Should be a good enough landmark to lead you here. I'll stay here and do some scouting in the meantime.' Sent. The iLac was put away in her pocket after that. Now for the being productive with her job assignment part of her day. If that rumor was true she needed to find out more about it. Preferably before the bomb blew up.

    Seeing a Rune Knight on patrol Aliarey thought to ask him if he knew anything. Probably not since he looked pretty damn calm but... well... Rune Knights were trained to be that way even under the whole we're all going to die circumstances, right? Hell if she knew. She walked up to the uniformed knight and tapped him on the shoulder. He turned around, surprised at first but recovered quickly enough to attempt a greeting before she opened her own big mouth to interrupt him. "Hey, you're part of the security around here right? So am I! I just don't have the official knightly label or uniform. It's temporary. Just for today kind of deal. You know, just trying to get some spare jewels while walking off those calories from last night's dinner. Anyway! You hear anything about some rebels trying to set up a bomb around here or anything?"

    The Rune Knight looked puzzled. Not so much because of the rebels. Everyone in his unit was informed about them the moment the first round of rumors were being whispered from Joyan to Joyan. The mention of a bomb though was new. "There have been some reports about the rebels but nothing about a bomb. Is that accurate information?"

    "Just something I heard. Figured I'd ask and get some information so I can stop it before the city goes boom. The exploded look doesn't look good on me and I did have plans for tomorrow so I'd rather not die. I guess it's a good thing I asked since you knew nothing." Aliarey patted him on the shoulder and smirked. "You troops better get moving and figure out where this bomb is. It might go off way before I find it and..." Actually, what the hell was she supposed to do once she found it? Shoot it? She wasn't some bomb expert! Well, she'll figure it out later if she had to. Maybe Diana would know how that stuff worked. She shrugged her shoulders. "Well, you know. I'm going to keep asking around. I'll let one of the other uniforms know if I find anything." Aliarey stepped away, first waving her hand and then making a lazy and silly salute as she twirled around to go in the opposite direction. Talking with Rune Knights wasn't really something she enjoyed doing, but she had to get over it just for that day. There needed to be way more eyes and ears seeing and listening for signs. Way more than just Diana's and her own.

    And Aliarey did continue asking around. She asked that same question to every single person she ran into whether they were a Joyan native or not. And no one knew anything! Or were just keeping quiet but holy crap! She expected to have found some snitch or informant that was willing to at least sell their information. Some might have thought it pretty dumb of her to just openly go around asking about the rebels. That could bring trouble to her and others obviously. Of course it was dumb! But what else was she supposed to do? It wasn't as if the world worked in such a way that she'd conveniently run into a lead just like that and with zero effort!

    "Okay, the last distraction worked. Let's start here next. If we keep this up the Inquisitor and the others can keep going secretly and make the move for the final stages of the plan."
    Three goat-like Joyans were huddled together, kneeling to the ground and talking. Loud enough for Aliarey to clearly hear every word. They seemed to think that they were alone. After all, many of the others in the city were busy protesting elsewhere or just being a part of the crowd to spectate the day's event. They didn't anticipate even a patroller to waltz right into their little abandoned corner of that sector's marketplace.
    "That's the bomb, right?"
    "Yeah, we keep this up for a bit longer and then split before it goes off. We're supposed to get word of when everything's good to go but in case we hear nothing we will leave the city after we've set up a few more distractions."
    "Right!"

    A lead. Right there. With zero effort. "The world does work like that. Huh. Now isn't that something?" Alia didn't take too long to process that bit of luck. She learned long ago that she was generally an unlucky woman and questioning any tiny bit of the opposite always led back around to the unlucky side. It was best to just accept when it came and adapt. "Hey! Uh... don't move or whatever it is security is supposed to say." As she yelled her demand she used her magic to summon one pair of pistols and pointed it at them. The yellow and black weapons shined as the sunlight bounced off their surface. They looked fancy but in actuality, they were glorified tasers. Sure she could put some oomph into their shots to make them way more lethal. That was their magic, after all, but she didn't intend to hurt the trio or kill them. She just wanted to ask some questions and figure out what was going on. Blasting people for no reason was a good way to get on the radar of the Rune Knights that were quite literally around nearly every corner. Aliarey definitely wanted to avoid that mess. "What's this about a bomb? Are you three part of that rebel group that is trying to make my easy payday way more difficult than it has to be?"

    The trio flinched when their conversation was interrupted. They quickly stood up fully on their hooves and faced the eavesdropper. Truly an intimidating and powerful Rune Knight had caught them discussing their plans! Fear and alarm were in their eyes until they realized the lack of uniform the stranger was wearing. A normal civilian? HA! "Oh, it's just one of those foreign mages that were hired to patrol around."
    "Yeah, you're right. I think our boys already took care of some of them. I guess it's our turn."
    "Ugh, we really don't have time for this."
    "Well, we can't just let her walk away. She's seen us and even heard mention of the bomb. What if she goes and tells? Every knight in the entire city will be on the hunt for the Inquisitor."
    The three each put a hand to their own chins and looked up thoughtfully.

    Aliarey blinked at first as the three talked amongst each other. Every comment she heard clearly and every comment that reached her ears made her more and more puzzled. What the heck? Did she really look like a tourist with nothing more than a sticker badge to serve as proof of her authority? Well she did have a Rune Knight symbol sticker on the chest of her clothing she supposed but she was clearly not a wandering tourist with no magic to back up the intimidation! She was strong enough to send most running for their lives if she so much as sneezed with a weapon in her hands. "Hey! I asked a question!" God being a law-abiding citizen was so annoying. It was so much easier to shoot and ask the questions later. She was pretty sure the rumors she heard were accurate and those three were totally in on it and needed to be stopped, but Aliarey was afraid of getting herself into trouble if she didn't do it the "good" way.

    The center Joyan rebel stared at her and frowned. "Uh, you asked two questions. And well.... Sorry!" She snapped the fingers of her raised hand and from that simple quick motion a spell had been activated. Out of thin air, vines materialized around Aliarey and grew. They began to wrap around her tightly. In seconds before she could react beyond a surprised yelp she was bound and cocooned in the green ropes of nature. Only her head was left to pop out of the trap so she could breathe. "I was trying to be nice! Now you're in for it! When I get out of here I am going to- Ahhh!" Aliarey had been making short hops towards the trio. The girls were flabbergasted at first but then giggled at the silly attempt. Even more so when the blonde fell over and began to roll away from them. All that could be heard by Aliarey now were their fits of laughter and their goodbye. They had vanished! Or possibly just ran off behind a wall. It was hard to tell while rolling away.

    "That's it! I'm done! No more being nice!" Her rolling had come to a slow stop. Now she was dizzy, annoyed, pissed off, and wanting to toss those Joyans into a trash can and send them rolling off the mountainside! Aliarey struggled with her bindings but had made little effort to get out of them. Without having access to her hands she couldn't even use a turret disc to disintegrate them. Maybe she could try teleporting out of them? Call on a Draovis droid? She had options but couldn't think of the more logical ones with her mind in the state it was. Instead, she chose the most illogical one. "DIANA! Help!" Shouting for her teammate when she probably wasn't even around to hear it yet made complete sense, right? Totally.

    As Diana continued to walk around Felidae City it became painfully obvious to her that she was utterly lost. It should not have come as a surprise considering she had never been here before, but with the possible threat Aliarey had told her about and the pressing need to stop it in case there was substance to it, being lost was a luxury that she could ill afford. She needed to meet up with Aliarey and do it soon. Thankfully a new clue came in on her iLac.

    According to a text message sent by Aliarey, the latter was standing in a place that was possibly in the center of the city and somewhere with a waterfall. Diana frowned. That particular clue was not very helpful. Fortunately reading the message to the end gave her something a little more substantial. Aliarey was in the area of a place called "Joyan Tea Party," an establishment that was possibly a tea shop.

    Armed with that vital clue, Diana finally had something solid to go on. She approached the nearest person and did her best to play the part of a friendly tourist to ask them where Joyan Tea Party was. She hoped that the sight of a red assault rifle slung on her shoulder would not be too intimidating to the person she asked.

    -In the center of Felidae City, forty-five minutes later-

    After a few failed attempts to learn the location of Joyan Tea Party from people who seemed to be too busy to talk to her, Diana had finally gotten directions to Joyan Tea Party thanks to the help of a friendly local. She followed the instructions she was given to the letter and after navigating the dense crowds found herself standing in an area with both a waterfall and an establishment named Joyan Tea Party. Diana gave a small smile as she was standing in the place her friend had told her about, but that smile soon faded when she realized that Aliarey was nowhere around despite saying that she was going to be here looking for clues in her last text message.

    Oh well.

    Now that she was in the area described in the text message, she needed to find Aliarey and join up with her so that they could hunt the rebels as a pair. However, that was easier said than done. This place was big and she did not have the slightest clue where her friend had disappeared to. Diana took a quiet breath and quietly exhaled.

    Would it kill Aliarey to stay in one place long enough for Diana to find her?

    Diana shrugged off the thought and began her quest to find Aliarey. She took a step forward and began looking all around her as she searched the immediate area for the blue-eyed blonde. There were no free food or free drink booths set up for this symposium, so the huntress' work was cut out for her.

    After doing a sweep of the immediate area Diana had come up with nothing, so she decided to take her search deeper into the area. She walked forward at a decent clip and was coming up with nothing again when she thought she heard screaming from somewhere nearby. That was something worth checking out. Breaking into a jog, Diana set out for the approximate area the screaming was coming from and listened out for it as she hunted for its source.

    As she adjusted her course as necessary and drew closer to the last known location of the screaming she thought back to it and thought that she had heard someone scream her name. There was only one person in this city who knew her name. It had to be Aliarey.

    Diana followed the sound to its source and eventually found Aliarey lying sideways and bound up in a ball of vines that covered everything but her head. The huntress immediately went to work freeing her friend while keeping an eye out for whoever had done this to Aliarey. Diana began the slow and tedious process of removing the vines by hand because she did not think to bring a knife or have a spell that could cut through the vines.

    -Ten minutes later-

    It had taken a lot of work and a lot of patience to get to this point. She had been unable to completely free Aliarey, but Diana had loosened the vines enough for her friend to stand a good chance of getting out of them now. Diana stepped back and looked around her for the culprits responsible for Aliarey's predicament, but she was not seeing anyone. She then turned her attention to her fellow blonde and spoke to her.

    "Aliarey, are you all right? Are you hurt in any way?" Diana asked Aliarey, whose facial expression clearly showed her displeasure with what had happened to her.
