Traveling across international borders had become quite a pain since the war had broken out. Knowing many others had done the same, it looked as though others had begun to lock down their processes of allowing others in for whatever reason in hopes of minimizing if not fully deterring the idea of starting trouble with them. But it’s not simply one or two. In his travels, the blue haired soldier had seen it in countless other countries. Procedures were procedures and he wouldn’t be one to go against them even if it seemed to be a little more… invasive. A few even seeming to be a little more bewildered by his appearance compared to his documentation. But that was part of the fun he got from this. Not that it was that the only reason he dressed and looked the way he did, however it didn’t hurt to see the look on some peoples face when they finally discovered it.
In comparison to some, the check through the Pergrande borders was not nearly as bad as some would think it may have. Maybe for the fact that Lexi not only did not have an ordinary magic ability anymore that threw them off, or perhaps the fact they assumed he was just any other girl passing by. Either way, he didn’t question a single thing until one of the security workers stopped him and looked into his passport. With not a single glint of confusion, worry, or issue, his Bellum military passport was still up to date and they had looked to him and to his passport several times. “This is a guy..?” He thought to himself as he slowly handed the passport back to the Sabertooth guild member. Flashing just an innocent smile, he entered the country and took a ride into the city for the job he had been undertaking.
Bustling with people it was. Some seemed to be utterly disgusted seeing what appeared to be an outsider to them, others simply pushed passed him as though he didn’t exist. And not once did he stop to confront anyone. He was aware of this country’s prejudices. His family had their own and being so accustomed to it, the opposite effect didn’t take any toll on him at all. But what did was a man who seemed to be fleeing. The look of fear on his face as he stumbled into the blue haired soldier and ran off. It looked like he had seen a ghost. Others seemed to be rather avoidant of a small circle and it drew him towards it. Curious as to what was going on, he chuckled to himself as a smile crossed his face. A young girl had seemed to rile up a couple people and scare away some others by her hand being on fire. A spectacle for some natives here, but not the worst he had seen in his lifetime for sure. ”Woah there, little fire cracker~ You gotta relax or they’ll bring out the guardsmen.” He was simply warning her before someone behind him screamed out about her being a monster.
Well that didn’t sit right with him at all… Quickly, Alexander turned to face him and the gentle natured soul was still there for the time being. ”I’ll give you 10 seconds to apologize to the young lady or I’ll be sure to show you a real monster, sir.” A mild threat and in the same demeanor as his prior laid back comment to Elara, Lexi was suddenly met with the Pergrandian man’s fist colliding with his face. His head jerked to the side, still standing without having moved a single bit. “You are all the same! Wait until the day we wipe your kind out and Pergrande becomes the-“ He stopped suddenly as his throat was gripped tightly, enough to stop him from even breathing. ”So much for kindness I suppose…” With an exasperated sigh, the crude citizen was picked up off the ground by the blue haired male before being thrown away into a nearby dumpster.
Brushing his hands clean of the incident, Lexi simply turned around and walked towards Elara before extending a hand. ”Might want to join me now. We’re gonna want to move before he brings friends o have to throw away like trash too.” A smile returned to his face as though he hadn’t just assaulted the aggressive man a moment ago. But should she join in, he would move through several alleys, side streets and eventually ducking into a small coffee shop and pulling them to a table. ”Just lay low for a little while. I lost them a bit back, but it’s best to stay off the streets for a little while.” Lexi would pause, placing his arms on the table as he examined the punk teen. ”So firecracker, what’s brought a mage to a country like this? Surely not for the hospitality.”
