The main difference this time was instead of Cyrus, he had taken up this job with his fellow teammate Quincy. He sighed, however one thing seemed not to have changed… the clients failing punctuality… this time however the client had kept them waiting for far more than just one hour this time. This man certainly enjoys taking his time… I only hope that this incident hasn’t… made his condition worse than it was the last time we met… Kihia remembered the last time, He had escorted this very same merchant across the desert, endured a sandstorm, fought of a legendary colossal scorpion as well as many smaller creatures. Kihia shook his head and looked outwards towards the desert remembering that trek across the sandy wastes.
Kihia sighed, “Where is our client…” He waited a while more hoping Quincy’s patience wouldn’t blow a fuse as they waited for their client. After a while Kihia heard a somewhat familiar sound. The rustling, jangling, and heavy footsteps of a man who was carrying something far larger than themselves. “Quincy… it seems the client has finally decided to arrive… best gather your things and get ready to move…” Kihia stood up and reached down and slung his backpack on and grabbed Icarus, and walked out of the shade. He saw the bumbling merchant he had met only once before, however this time it seemed a few more nuts had been broken loose in the mans mind as well as he seemed to have lost more weight.
The man cackled a bit and said, “OH hello there young man! So nice to see you again! I hope you don’t mind another trip out into the desert! Well… I hope that you are… I was kinda worried you had left me after I searched for you all around the village all this time….” Kihia shook his head and sighed, “I thought I had mention in the letter I sent to you, that we would meet up in the town at the same place as last time….”
