Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark follows Momo to Zoe and Sarah's table. "Hi, Connor and Momo!" Sarah says as enthusiastically as always.
"Hello Sarah" Dark responded. He turns to Zoe. "What's happened since we left?" he asked Zoe. Being gone so long, Dark doubted that the two had just been sitting there the whole time.
"It's... a long story," Zoe says, deciding to withhold the venture they had had earlier. She noticed Dark's leg. "I see you got a prosthetic."
"Yeah. It's a bit uncomfortable, but I'll get used to it." Dark says, looking down at the leg and hitting the floor with the tip of the toe.
"Yeah, it takes awhile to get used to I bet, but this ain't the first time you've had troubles with that leg," Zoe says, chuckling. She remembered the incident he had had with the wolf when he was younger, and how he had refused to use his crutches after his leg had healed despite him not having used it in ages. "Anyway, how was your two's venture?" she asked the pair.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam followed Mira and Fionn, being quiet so as not to disturb their conversation.

Bed head zed

Falaos had noticed everyone who had walked into the lobby. Looks like everyone's here... He thought.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh looked at Mira now, and smiled softly. He was still worried for her safety, so now he would keep an eye on her. He sipped in an empty cup of water.

Rakgnarok

Fionn stand by nearby Mira, he looks nervously at Liam, he takes a breath and walks closer to Liam, "Excuse me, I don't mean to be rude but I couldn't help noticing you've been following us, do you maybe need something? Something I can help you with?" He says to Liam.
Xil sits up straight as Mira walk into the room, he looks at her from the other side of the room with a slight wistful expression on his face as he sits nearly at the edge of his seat.

Toreadorfreddy

"No, I'm good," Liam said, "I was just making sure Mira is ok."

YandereTsun

"It was great. We both got we need, and everything went well," Momo said, cheerfully, to the thought that she finally bought swords and she helped a friend.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"That's excellent," Zoe says. She looks at Dark and remembers last night. "Oh, Dark, have you told your friends about the thing yet?"
"Oh, right, that," Dark says, scratching the back of his neck. "Yeah, I'll do that in a bit. Right now I gotta go pack some stuff. I'll be back." he says. He leaves the table, looking around for Hugh. When he finds him he walks toward him.
"Hey, Hugh, could I get the room key? I need to pack some stuff that's still in the room," he asks Hugh.
Zoe watched Dark walk off. She then looked back at Momo. "If you want you could sit down. We don't mind," Zoe says, gesturing to the third chair at the table. "Unless, you want to sit with all your friends over at that big table," she added, nodding toward the table Dark had walked toward. Sarah had found her journal inside Zoe's bag and was now doodling in it.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh smiled widely and turned his attention to Dark, but not watching him directly. He picked his key out of his pocket and threw it upwards for him to grab it mid-air. "Yep!" He chuckled, "Maybe Fionn's stuff is here too, but nothing is mine."

Are You Freddy For Ready

He catches the key. "Thanks. I'll check to see if Fionn has any stuff then, and if not, I'll just return the room key to the innkeeper." Dark says. He turns and leaves, walking to the room the guys had shared the other night.
Upon arriving at their room, he unlocks the door and goes to where Hugh put his stuff last night. He grabs the change of clothes Trace had put in the luggage for him and begins undressing and dressing into the change of clothes.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh didn't even have the time to answer Dark, that the human was gone. He shrugged, and spoke to himself, losing his attention for Mira to stare at the table. "Some species really act too quick. I thought we'd stay here for a few days... Oh well..." He smiled, quickly consulting his locket to let out a sigh of despair : It would already be noon in a bit, and the morning seemed already too fast for the rabbit.

Donotdiddlekids

Jack and Firaas giggle a bit.
"Right, yeah, not passed out.", Jack said afterwards, noticing that Xil was looking inattentive, and sat quietly for Xil to realize that the two anthros were still there.

Rakgnarok

"Oh, well, she seems to be fine, it just seems like she just needs some time to think right now, but again, if there is anything you need, please feel free to ask me!" Fionn says to Liam, he pauses for a moment and tilts his head sligthly, "Um, excuse me but, I dont believe I've gotten your name, I'm Aodhfionn Firth Wolffe, but you may just call me Fionn if you wish, may I ask your name Mister?" He adds Shyly.
Xil shakes his head sligthly and looks back at the two anthros, "R-right, sorry, uh, i just uhh.." He pauses for a moment, he leans back on his chair and crosses his arms again, although this time not really smiling much, "Nevermind.. So, you guys are like friends or something?" He asks, trying to change the subject.

Donotdiddlekids

"No, we're siblings. Although I'm not from her direct family.", Jack said. "I was taken in by them after my parents got attacked. Dunno if my parents made it out."

Toreadorfreddy

"I'm called many things by many people," Liam said calmly, "But my name is Liam Jordan."

Rakgnarok

"O-oh, um, well, its nice to meet you mister Jordan!" Fionn says, smiling at him and bowing.
"Ah, well, I'm sorry to hear that but it looks to me like you at least got someone to count on huh?" Xil says to Jack, looking at Firaas as he does.

Donotdiddlekids

"Yeah. She's watched my back through all this.", Jack replied, Firaas nodding.

Toreadorfreddy

"Nice to meet you too," Liam said, maintaining his calm demeanor.

Rakgnarok

Fionn would seem happy, he'd suddenly stare for a moment at Liam's leg as his face sligthly shows some worry, "Um.. Say, may I ask how your leg is doing?.." He pauses for a moment, "Its just that, I've been told I should be able to heal people somehow although I'm not very sure how to do it.. Would mind if I.. I-if I stay close to you? I mean, maybe if I do maybe I'll find a way to heal your leg?.." the wolf asks rather shyly.
"Yeah, that must be pretty nice huh? Having someone always by your side.." The tiger says sounding rather wistful again, "Not that I need anyone really, I'm doing great on my own! I've even got so much stuff that I don't even need that I have a place just to keep it all in!" He adds rather proudly as to avoid showing he thinks it'd be nice to have a partner.

Donotdiddlekids

"Yeah, having a partner is nice.", Jack replies. "But, due respect to you for you doing well on your own.", he adds on, nodding a bit.

Toreadorfreddy

"Perhaps," Liam said thoughtfully, "But not right now. Currently, I would like to see what the others are doing."

Rakgnarok

"Oh, I see, well, if you'd like to give that a try just tell me please, I'll be around." Fionn adds.
"Well, what can I say, I'm a natural born hunter and I aquired a lot of survival skills as a cub, im basically both naturally talented and masterfully trained" He adds, clearly boasting.

Toreadorfreddy

"Ok," Liam said as he moved towards the group. He quietly observed what they were doing.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh was looking left and right, Observing Raole, Sylvan, Max in front of him, then Falaos. He was asking himself what could they do, since no one was up to go wander outside.
"This city, as healthy and comfortable as it looks, is nothing like the others... I'm not a great town citizen..." the rabbit said out loud. "I appreciate the looks and occasional visits, but I wouldn't enjoy a permanent life there..." He frowned.

Skaitleen03

Scarlet sits in the lobby a distance away from the others.

Sp3ctr3EX

"I would have to agree with you on that actually." Raole spoke to Hugh. "Vile Root is nice and all but, not a place where I would want to live, there are more interesting places out there to see and travel to."

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark finishes getting dressed into the change of clothes provided by Trace. He puts on his trenchcoat and scarf and grabs his luggage, being the pair of clothing he had just changed out of and whatever else Trace had put in the bag. He then starts looking around the room for any of Fionn's stuff. Finding none, he grabbed his stuff, being the bag and his sword, and left the room, locking the door behind him. He then starts making his way down to the lobby.

YandereTsun

"It would be rude to reject the offer. Thank you," she said with a smile, as she sat down. "And they seem to be discussing about locations," she continued, as she looked at the others' table.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Ah, well, I'm sure we'll be joining that conversation as soon as Connor gets back," Zoe says. "I'm sure he's at least told you about it, right?" she asks.
Sarah was still drawing in her journal, not hearing any of the conversations around her.

YandereTsun

"Hm?" Momo looked at Zoe, clueless whatsoever.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Oh, I guess he hasn't then," Zoe says. "Well, he'll explain it to you all when he gets back I'm sure."
Why must Connor delay telling people? It's not that big of a deal... Zoe thought.

Paradox.XXIV

The rabbit turned to Raole, leaning back onto his chair. "I wouldn't mind staying here a few days, but a town is far too active for someone like me... I need calm to settle down..." Hugh said, his mind wandering off to Mira before his thoughts got blown away when he shook his head. "Plains would be nice, that's where my kind goes..." Hugh then added.

Bed head zed

"Yeah, I enjoy calm places too." Falaos stated.

Paradox.XXIV

"Do you really?" Hugh smiled as he turned to Falaos. "I really imagine you in a forest more, though..." He couldn't resist to state the end of a sentence. "... Oh, unless you burn it down... huhu!" He regretted that remark as soon as it left his mouth, so the rabbit chuckled as if it was a joke.

Bed head zed

"Well, I have been living in forests for a while, but I really miss my home town... And uh, I've decided that I'll try to never burn down a forest again..." Falaos replied.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh's face turned red as he nodded, yet surprised of Falaos' calmer temper. "I-I know I-I was just joking... But by the way, where do you come from again? I've heard about a village or town full of canines in the Northern parts of the country, but that's all I know..." he admitted.

Bed head zed

"I come from Barkson, it's a small village located in a forest up north." Falaos replied.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Whoa, burned down an entire forest? I wonder how that happened Falaos." Raole asks the fox.

Bed head zed

"It's... Complicated..." Falaos replies, not wanting to give any details.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh interrupted them shortly with a light sigh. "Ah, forests again..." He chuckled.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Oh, nevermind that I asked then Falaos." Raole says. "Anyway yes Hugh, Barkson is a nice village wether not for a bunch of crazy people calling themselves a cult."

Bed head zed

"Well, the cult there is actually gone." Falaos states.

Paradox.XXIV

"What, have you gone there too?" Hugh asked, curious and also pretty desperate to hear about the stories of the vast country he never really traveled in yet.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Oh dear Hugh, I've been to alot of places, I am sort of a traveller so to speak, I have seen and been in a lot of interesting places but I have to say that Entherstia has some of the best ones, this is actually my second time here on Vile Root." Raole tells the bunny man with a smile.

Paradox.XXIV

The rabbit, however, seemed pretty uncomfortable as soon as the second word of Raole's sentence was said. I lifted his paw to mark a pause, but put it back down after a second. "A-Alright." He tried to recover from being called dear like that, the last time he had heard it being from Adrear's mouth. And it wasn't pleasing to hear. "... J-just go on. Second visit in Vile Root... You say?" He asked politely.

Sp3ctr3EX

Raole looked confused at Hugh for a moment but nontheless continued. "Well yes, as you might have figured by now, I am not a native of Entherstia, I came from outside the country and the world is too beautiful to be left unexplored, so what other better place to go other than Entherstia to start an adventure? Besides it was where I first met Max, an old friend of mine."

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh listened carefully until the human had finished, quickly changing his uncomfortable expression to an interested one. "Woooow, you've traveled more than even we have!" He was a bit jealous, but it was heartwarming to see someone so free going around and visit so many places. "That's so great!" He admitted, smiling again.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark arrives in the lobby. He makes his way to the counter, returns the key, and pays for the room. He then turns toward the larger of the two tables the group was split up into and began walking toward it.
Ok, Dark. No more stalling. Just tell them. he thought to himself as he approached the group's table.
Zoe followed Dark's movement with her eyes. "Looks like he's about to tell them now as a matter of fact," Zoe says.

Bed head zed

Falaos noticed Dark approaching the table. He waves at him. Wow, this table's gonna get pretty packed. He thought.

Rakgnarok

Fionn stands around looking at the group, a warm smile appears on his face as he sees everyone speaking so peacefully, Fionn would stay put as to not disturb them.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam noticed Dark walking over. He didn't pay ir much attention, however. He was more interested in what the group was going to do next.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"So have you went to an unmarked town in the forest that's about north of Ironberg?? That place is..... unique...." Sub asked Raole, he looked to notice Dark coming.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Ironberg, yes I've heard of that place, but I never went or heard of that town you seem to speak of Sylvan..." Raole stopped before noticing a shady looking young man approach their table.

Bed head zed

"That place... Let's not talk about it." Falaos said, looking away from Dark.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"I guess, we can change the topic, have you been in Ironberg?? Or atleast anywhere near the cold parts of northern Serentia??" Sub asked Raole.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Yes, I've been in those northern parts." Raole stopped before continuing. "As for Ironberg, if I remember correctly, I never went past that weird stone wall, and my time there was very short actually since, it wasn't a place I enjoyed either." Raole says somewhat thinking about his last time there. "Haven't been there a second time like most places I visited."

Bed head zed

"Hmm, have you ever heard of a place called Snowpoint?" Falaos asked Raole.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Yeah, only some traders and citizens are allowed in there. And you can't really see the sunset from inside that wall unless you're in the middle tower." Sub said. "Apart from the cold, the crime rate is extremely low, wouldn't recommend it for a vacation spot though."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"I've heard of that place," Dark says to Falaos, now at the table. "In fact, I went up there recently with a 'friend' of mine. Never got to see it, though, as I was thrown off a cliff before I made it to the town." he decided it'd be best to insert himself into the conversation rather than just announcing where they needed to go. It helped that they were speaking of towns.

Bed head zed

"You mean that Daniel guy?" Falaos replied. "Wow, rough... I've heard that it's mostly a ghost town these days."

Sp3ctr3EX

"I see Sylvan, I can see why." Raole tells the big wolf before turning to Dark.
"Thrown off a cliff!? Wow!" Raole exclaims rather shocked. "That's horrible, and excuse me... But who are you exactly? Are you an aquaintance of Falaos?" He asks Dark.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Well, considering I've been traveling with this group for awhile, I'd say I'm at least acquaintances with everyone at the table. Except you, of course," Dark says, in a semi-joking manner. "Name's Dark, and you are?"

Sp3ctr3EX

"Oh, you are a part of this group? Then I assume you know Max aswell correct?" Raole pauses before introducing himself. "Then allow me to introduce myself, I am Raole Hetzel Thorzin, someone you could call a traveller, I am pleased to meet you Dark, such a peculiar name." Raole says.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"You could call me a traveler of sorts as well," Dark says. "Pleased to meet you, Raole,"
As soon as the name slips off Dark's tongue he adds, "Your name is pretty odd as well."

Sp3ctr3EX

"Well what can I say Dark? I guess my name is unique in a way so to speak." Raole says smilling in a friendly manner.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Right," Dark says. "So, what were you guys talking about? Snowpoint?" he asks.

Bed head zed

"Well, we were talking about traveling around Entherstia before that." Falaos states.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam moved over towards Dark's table, curious about what they were talking about.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Oh, well, did Harknest come up in that conversation? Cause that's where we're going next," Dark says, not even giving room for debate.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam blinked a couple times when Dark stated where they were going, then shrugged like he didn't care.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Oh... Harknest?... Hm... Not really a fan of that place." Raole says, uneasiness in his voice.

Bed head zed

"Harknest? I thought we were going to Chaimsland, Fionn wanted to look for his parents..." Falaos stated, confused.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Huh.. I thought we were going to Tailos, so any reasons why we're back tracking??" Sub asked. "I'm just curious, I'll still come along."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Something... came up... family related issues," Dark says, a saddened look coming across his face. "I... need to go there to get things sorted out..." he adds, looking down at the floor.

Bed head zed

"Oh... Alright." Falaos replies. "You should tell Fionn."

Sp3ctr3EX

"Fionn? Who is this Fionn person? Is he from your group too?" Raole asked to no one in particular.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Yeah," Dark answers. He looks around the lobby for Fionn, spotting him nearby. He walks toward him. "Hey, Fionn," he says as he got close.

Rakgnarok

"Oh Hello!" Fionn says gleefully to Dark, "I see you've got a new um..." He looks at Dark's metal leg, "how is it feeling?" He asks.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Oh, it's fine. Takes a bit of getting used too, though," Dark says looking down at his leg. He looks back up. "Anyway, Falaos said I should talk to you about our next destination."

Rakgnarok

"Oh? What about it?" He asks, tilting his head slightly.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Well, I recently learned that something came up... something relating to my family... a death... And so we have to go to Harknest," Dark says, a saddened look coming over his face again. "And since we were going to Chaimsland to find your parents before, we have to delay that trip..."

Rakgnarok

"Oh.." He lowers his ears, "N-no, this sounds more urgent, Chaimsland can wait a bit longer, lets go to Harknest first so you can um.. deal with that." He says looking at dark rather empathetically.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Alright. Glad we could sort this out," Dark says. He turns to head back to the table but stops, turning his head to Fionn. "And, thanks for understanding, Fionn."

Rakgnarok

Fionn smiles softly at Dark and nods.

Donotdiddlekids

"Uhh... sorry to interrupt, buuuuut are we walking there?", Max asked. "Because I don't wanna walk there."

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh's ears drooped pretty hard as well, disappointed that Fionn Wolf n'a get to know how his parents had been all this time. He was already trying to think of a plan, and turned to Dark and Fionn, who were standing by the rabbit's left side. "I-I guess we can't split up for a few days? We don't have to be the whole group to go to either Harknest and Chaimsland, but we could meet back up midway or directly in Tailos?" He asked, clearly not wanting to let Fionn down so easily. And honestly, Hugh didn't want to travel that far from Tailos.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"It'd be best to not split I'd think. If something else came up and one group had to do something else, then the other group would never know and they'd be waiting for a long time. It's better to stay together," Dark says to Hugh. "We'll get to Tailos after Harknest. It'd be much easier to find Fionn's parents with all of us helping rather than just half."

YandereTsun

Momo looked at the group from where she sat. She didn't really mind where they were going, as she was more concerned of what the others think.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh continued. "But do we need everyone to go to Harknest or Tailos really?" He tilted his head very slightly, not sounding rude at all.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"No, we don't," Dark agrees. "But, say group A is in Harknest and something comes up, so they have to go to some other town. Then group B in Tailos have completed their objective and are now waiting for group A, who have been delayed. Group B would have no idea that Group A has been delayed, and they'd most likely stop waiting after awhile and move on. It's better to stick together to avoid this."

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh nodded. "I understand! But... Ah, pfff.." He sighed and lifted his paws in despair, keeping his ears flattened on his back. "It's not like if we can't communicate from afar, but... Alright." The rabbit dropped his shoulders. "We're all going with you to Harknest." He accepted.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Thanks, I appreciate it," Dark says. He turns to Fionn. "Don't worry, after Harknest we'll help you all we can to find your parents, Fionn." he says, putting his hand on the wolves shoulder to try and make him feel better.

Bed head zed

Falaos smiled, happy that they could come to an agreement. But his smiled quickly vanished as he realized something. "Um, has anyone seen my other sister Clare? I haven't seen her since we arrived here..." He asked no one in particular.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh turned back to the table with a slightly sad frown and looked at Falaos. "Have I met her already? I can't be sure..." he inquired.

Bed head zed

"She was that other fox who was traveling with us, the one wearing a hood." Falaos informed Hugh.

Rakgnarok

"Thank you both for worrying but its ok, you guys really don't have any reason to help me look for my parents but you've offered to anyways, it'd be just plain wrong if we delayed something important for any of you because of me when you've all been nothing but nice to me." He adds, smiling warmly at the two of them, "Oh? Im sorry Falaos, I wasn't aware you had a sister even, I'm afraid I have not seen her since I met you guys..." He says rather dissapointedly to Falaos.
Fionn would seem to be fine, his worry now clearly directing to Falaos's sister although his ears would still remain droopy, as if contradicting his face entirely.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark takes his hand off Fionn's shoulder. He turns to Falaos "She was the one steering the ship, right?" Dark asks, though he doesn't wait for an answer. "Yeah no, haven't seen her since then."

Bed head zed

"Huh, maybe she just left without us..." Says Falaos.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira had listened to all of these conversations, and now that they seemed to be wrapping up, she decided to walk over to Xil. She quietly sat down at the table the tiger was sitting at, and looked at the other two anthros seated there. She nodded a quick greeting to them, then looked up at Xil with a smile. "We'll be heading out soon. Will you be joining us or not?"

Toreadorfreddy

Liam looked over at Mira with a bored expression, then returned to observing the conversation at Dark's table.

Donotdiddlekids

Jack and Firaas give a quick wave back to Mira.

Rakgnarok

Xil watches rather surprised as mira comes to him and sits near him, "You... You know who I am?" Xil asks rather confused.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira giggled slightly before speaking. "Yes, I do. I lost my memory for a bit, but I got better."

Rakgnarok

"Oh, well, uh, glad to have you back kitten." He says with a bit of a soft smile which would last mere seconds before returning to his usual smug expression, "Yeah, I should probably come along, seems like you might need someone who can actually defend you if the need arises." he says puffing out his chest proudly.

02:15, November 18, 2016

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira smiled wide, purring slightly. She was obviously happy that the tiger would be coming with, but she no longer seemed as infatuated with him. "You know, you can admit that you're coming along because you want to. It'll make it easier for you to stick around when you realize that we're not as weak as we seem."

Donotdiddlekids

Jack looked up at Mira.
"Hey, what direction are you guys headed in?", Jack asked.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"We're heading up to Harknest. Dark has some family business there that he needs to attend to, and this group sticks together," Mira said, turning to face the two anthros she didn't know. "I'm Mira by the way. And you are...?" she prompted.

Donotdiddlekids

"Jack. This is my sister, Firaas. And we're headed in that direction too, not necessarily to Harknest, but in the direction. Mind if we join you for the trip? Just for the company so we don't get robbed or something?", Jack explained and asked.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"We're always willing to have more people join our group," the cat said. "Though... Don't be surprised if something crazy happens on the way. That seems to happen a lot to us."

Rakgnarok

Xil starts stretching in his seat, "So, when are we leaving then? And how, seems like you have quite a large group and I doubt we're walking there, right?" He asks as he keeps stretching.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Ah... Soon, and I have no idea," Mira admitted, laughing a bit at herself. "I guess Dark's in charge of that, but I have no idea if he's gotten that far yet..."
The cat turned around, spotted the Harss, then called out, "Hey Dark! Come here for a sec?" as she beckoned him over.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark turns to the cat anthro. "Be right there!" he calls back. He starts walking toward their table, nearly tripping due to the awkwardness of his new legs straps and the fact that he still isn't fully used to the thing yet. He managed to make it to the table without having a repeat of the fall in the library. "Yes?" he says.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"I know we're going to Harknest, but how?" Mira asked, leaning back in her chair comfortably.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Uh, well..." Dark says, having to think about this as he hadn't gotten that far in planning. "Considering money isn't a problem due to Metal Guy, we could probably just rent a couple carriages to take us the whole way or something," he answers.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh replied to Falaos after a moment he took for thinking. "Mmh... I don't recall seeing her around in the tavern but perhaps you want to try... and find her?" He asked, making the fox glance at Hugh's locket that he had taken out of his pocket, but had hidden from the others' sight.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"In other words you don't really have a plan, and are just pulling this off of your tail. Gotcha," Mira said. "Well, tell us when you have something actually worked out, okay?"

Are You Freddy For Ready

"What's wrong with my plan?" Dark asks. "Do carriages not work or something?"

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Carriages would work, yeah, but we have a big group, and I haven't seen a stable in this town yet that rents carriages out, let alone how many and how big we'd need. You're going to have to find something like that before you decide we're going to use it," Mira explained.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark sighs. "Alright," he says, now realizing, thanks to Mira, that an actual plan was needed to go to Harknest. He looks at Xil and the other two anthros. "So, who are your friends?" he asks, trying to change the subject.
Sarah finished the drawing she had been working on. "Look, Zoe! Look what I drew!" Sarah says, showing it to Zoe. Sarah had drawn her with Wisp, Mira, Fionn, and Momo playing together. They were drawn in stick figures, but each person was distinguishable due to their heads and the fact that Sarah's nicknames for each of them were written over each head in barely legible handwriting.
"Whoa, that's amazing, Sarah," Zoe says. "You could be an artist!"
Sarah gets a wide smile, then turns in her seat and shows Momo. "Look, you're in it!"

Rakgnarok

Fionn would stand quietly next to the table, trying not to interrupt the group's conversation, it'd be easy to mistake him for a waiter by the way he'd be standing next to the table.
Xil rolls his eyes and his tail starts swinging in a rather impatient manner, "I'm Xil Tigris, though it sounds to me like you oughta stop wastin' time and look into that stuff about the carriages or do you need me to do it for you?" He adds abruptly.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Well, by all means, go ahead. Do my job for me. I won't stop you. It'll take a load off my shoulders, a load I'm sure a man such as yourself could handle carrying," Dark sarcastically replies.

Bed head zed

Falaos stared at Hugh's locket for a few seconds, not understanding what it meant. "I think I'll just stay here, she probably just left without us..." He said again.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh frowned sadly. "Ah... Alright then..." he whispered, looking down at the table while putting his golden watch back in his pocket. "Hope she's doing fine..." He mumbled then sat silent and still.

Rakgnarok

Xil stands up clearly taking on Dark's sarcastic bluff, he looks down at Dark's leg for a moment before speaking, "Well, I'd definetly be much faster." He adds and stares at him with a rather taunting expression as he crosses his arms.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Well then, since you are clearly superior to me, I obviously shouldn't be the one handling such a task. Therefore, you should be the one to take it on." Dark replies in a slight sarcastic manner. "If, of course, you're up to it."

Rakgnarok

"Of course im up for it, this is as easy as climbing a tree, but I have to give it to you, being able to recognize how much better I am than you, youre not half bad I guess." He says clearly only boasting his ego.
"Anyway, I'm gonna need some information then before I go look into that, how many people will go and how fast do you want to get to harknest?
Normally I'd have no issue with this but how about food and water, we are going to need a lot of those for the trip too and thats taking the carriage drivers in mind as well, thats all the basic stuff that we need to consider before even running off randomly." He says in a more serious yet friendlier tone.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira watched this exchange first with mild concern, and now with interest. "Xil, you should probably talk to Sub if you're going to do this. He's our main source of money," she said, then raised her hand to point at him. "He's the seven foot tall wolf over there."

22:33, November 18, 2016

Rakgnarok

He turns to Mira, "Oh, he loaded or somethin'? Well, allright, thanks for the advice kitten, I'll be sure to ask him when I get on that." He adds, winking at Mira.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Hmm..." Dark says. He strokes his chin in thought. "I'd say, maybe five-six carriages would do? I really don't know how many people are in the group, and it seems we just keep getting bigger, as evident by your relatively recent addition. And a decent speed would most likely suffice." he answers the tiger.

Rakgnarok

Xil wouldn't seem too pleased with Dark's information, "Fine, I guess I can make due with that, anything else then or should I get going?" He asks.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Well we have some large members," Mira said, glancing over at Wisp briefly, "so... Just make sure that whatever you get is big enough. Oh, and Sub may be made of money, but we don't really need luxury."

Rakgnarok

"Yeah, I'm guessing mister money bags wouldn't be too comfortable in a small carriage either, dont worry Kitten, I don't really care much for fancy stuff as long as it works fine, I won't go overboard."
He pauses and looks around for a moment, "Well, if that's all I guess I'll go talk to this, 'Sub'." He says walking away.
Xil starts walking towards the table Sub is sitting in, "Hey, uh, Sub is it? I'm helping that guy over there with the carriages and I was told you are loaded or somethin'." He says very casually.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark sits down in the chair previously sat in by Xil. "And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you get people to do your work for you," Dark says victoriously once he was sure Xil would be unable to hear him.

Donotdiddlekids

Jack and Firaas giggled a bit, and turned to Dark.
"Well, to answer your earlier question, I'm Jack.", Jack answered.
"My name is Firaas.", the sister replied.
"And we're siblings.", Jack followed up with.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Dark," Dark replies, not questioning their siblingship despite their different races. "Pleasure to meet you both."

Donotdiddlekids

"Same, Dark.", Jack says, nodding respectfully.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Well.... I'm not loaded right now, but when we get to the places where we rent the carriage, I'll be loaded by then." He said as he drops a wink.

Rakgnarok

Xil would look at him with a rather confused expression, "Well then, whenever you're ready to go, just tell me then, if you need to go fetch your giant bags of money or somethin' I can wait for a moment." He says, standing by and waiting for Sub to say when.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Sub?" Raole turns to the big wolf with an intrigued expression. "Is that some sort of nickname you got Sylvan?" He asks.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"We can go right now, I'll have it ready when we get there." He said. He made a chunk of platinum behind his back and put it in his empty money pouch, ready to turn it into coins as soon as he gets there. He proceeds to stand up. "So do you know where the carriages are exactly??" He asked, then he turned to look Raole. "Yep, it's a nickname that I usually go by."

Rakgnarok

"Eh, not really but im sure if I ask around to someone who knows this town I'll be able to find where to get them in no time." He adds.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Actually, I know where you can rent the carriages, if you need my assistance of course." Raole says to both wolf and tiger.

Rakgnarok

"Hmm, you do?
Well, if you really do know a good place to get the carriages here then sure." He says in a rather condecsending tone.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Alright then." Raole then stands up, feeling indifferent to the tiger's attitude. "Allow me to take you both there." He says as he walks towards the door.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh had a blink of an idea when he heard the number and size of the group would be a bit of a problem. He shifted on his chair in a better position to glance at Mira and fiddled with his ring, still on his finger. The rabbit would seem very thoughtful for a while.

Rakgnarok

Xil begrudgingly follows the human.
Fionn backs away from the table quietly, he stares out the window as if lost in thought, his ears droopy and his tail hanging motionless.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam noticed Raole leaving with a couple others. He got up to follow them, not entirely trusting Raole.

Sp3ctr3EX

Raole got outside and turned around to Sub and Xil. "Come on. You guys are bigger than me, I'm sure I will have to walk twice as much as you, but we will get there in no time."
"By the way, mister buff tiger, I don't believe I got your name." Raole speaks to Xil.

Rakgnarok

"Im Xil tigris, and you are?" The tiger answers in a rather unfriendly manner.

Sp3ctr3EX

"You can just call me Raole, Xil. Okay then let's get moving shall we?" Raole said as he started walking down the street. "At least he doesn't sound as bad as that other guy." He thought.

TheOneTrueCardinal

Sub followed Raole as he walked down the street, he looked around as he walked to see if anything catches his eye.

Rakgnarok

Xil follows Raole, "So uh, do you live here or somethin' or how do you know where this place is?" He asks as he walks along.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Oh, I have been in Vile Root before and I came back not too long ago, I walked around for a while to see if Vile Root had changed, but it didn't, at least not much, most of this place is still the same." Raole explains to Xil as he kept walking.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh simply watched the others leave, his thumb rubbing on the edge of his pocket watch.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

After watching the group leave, Mira rested her head on her arms on the table in front of her. Her ears were folded back and her tail was limp.

Rakgnarok

"Well, I don't really get too much into looking around just for the heck of it, I prefer to just deal with the buisness I have in a place and move on." He says, easing off on the aggresiveness a bit.
Fionn takes a long breath and exhales a bit loudly right after relaxing a bit despite his ears remaining droopy, he turns around slightly scanning the place and starts walking once he notices dark's current location, he walks up to dark, "Um, excuse me, sorry to interrup, I was just wondering how soon we are leaving, if I may know please?" He asks to Dark.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Xil and Sub just left to get that sorted out, so it should be pretty soon," Mira said, raising her head out of her folded arms.

Rakgnarok

"Oh... Um.. Theres something i have to er, do, before we leave I'm um, I'm gonna leave for a bit, I'll try to be back quickly.." He says a bit nervously, "Thank you" He adds before turning around and heading outside, he'd exit the inn unless stopped.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira stood up slightly. "Do you need any help with that?" she asked, making it clear that she wanted to come, but not forcing the issue.

Rakgnarok

Fionn turns back upon hearing Mira "Oh um, s-sure! If you wish to come um, I'd appreciate the company." He says smiling at her yet his ears remain droopy, he continues heading to the exit and stops at the door, opening it and holding it for Mira as soon as she got close.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

The cat followed the wolf and waited just outside of the door for him to start walking. She gave him a warm smile, and her own ears perked up slightly.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark just sat at his chair, watching the two anthros leave, unable to say anything during the exchange between him, Mira, and Fionn due to how fast it started and ended.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh gave Dark the exact same surprised look, and giggled at the situation after one second of staring at the human.

Rakgnarok

The wolf exits, he nods at mira and starts walking, "Um, we're heading to a forge in the outskirts of Vile Root so um, we better walk fast if we dont wanna take too long." He says as he walks.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark didn't notice the rabbit anthro staring at him. He gets up to go back to Zoe and Momo's table as he is the only one he truly knows at the table he currently sat at due to Mira's leave. He'd start walking to the table but would stop walking if someone were to talk to him.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Alright, I can do that," the cat said, picking up her pace. "But you'd better lead the way since I don't know where that is."

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh thought Dark would notice him, but he only found himself get ignored, and lowered his ears again. He was now left to the table with May, Falaos and Max, and turned to them, but said no words.

PBEgaming

May quickly gets up and attempts to catch up to Raole, Xil, and Sub.
"Hey, wait!" May yelled, "Do you guys mind if I come with you guys?"

Rakgnarok

"Right!" He says picking up the pace as well and leading Mira towards the outskirts of town, "Um, thank you for coming along, I really didn't wanna come alone, I mean, its not like he's bad or anything but considering last night.." He adds, not realizing Mira wouldn't really know too well who he is talking about and what happened last night.
Xil turns to may and shrugs, "Sure, well, I guess we could use the extra hands since we need to get food and water supplies for the trip as well." He adds indifferently.

Bed head zed

Falaos looks back at Hugh and tries to think of something to talk about. "So what did you do for a living before you went on this adventure with us?" He asked Hugh.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam continued following Raole's group. He noted that the irritating tiger was with them.

Rakgnarok

Xil discreatly takes a look back, he growls lowly as he keeps walking muttering to himself "What does he want?"

Toreadorfreddy

Liam continued following them, wondering how long it would take them to notice that he was there.

TheOneTrueCardinal

After looking around and seeing nothing that could catch his eye. Sub decided to speak up "I got an idea, how about we just run there instead of slowly strolling??" He said to the group.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Alright Sylvan, sounds like a good exercise, just try and not pass me big guys and you May, hope you can keep up with us." Raole says without turning around and right after he finishes his sentence he starts running towards their destination.

PBEgaming

"Yeah, sure thing - but I'm pretty sure I won't be the one needing to keep up."
May's face turned to a smirk as she continued walking.

Rakgnarok

Xil smirks, "Heh, I could run circles around ya, but don't worry I'll try not to embarras you but thats no reason to hold back eh?" He says, he slightly turns back for a moment, "And maybe we'll loose that creep..." he mutters, he shortly sprints right after Raole, making sure to stay behind him.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam grinned slightly as they started running. He knew he would never catch them with his broken leg, so he turned and headed back to the Inn, looking for the others.

YandereTsun

Momo smiled at Sarah, then patted her head. She looked at the drawing, as she found it adorable. "Thank you, Sarah," she said. "That's really cute and amazing!" Momo continued cheerfully.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh lifted his face to Falaos. "Ah, it was fairly simple, actually, living the great life from my parents' little farm... I hadn't left it much before my dad gifted me the watch~" His voice died a little as he remembered the event, but he only marked a pause for a brief moment before continuing: "I-I left my mom's 'burrow' shortly after, and traveled for two years, looking far and wide for the locket's real purpose." he said. "... And then I found you."

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Yeah, well, I have been wanting to talk to you alone for a while too. Who are we going to again?" Mira asked, tucking her hands in her pockets comfortably. She was making an effort to walk almost beside Fionn, but with him slightly in front. Because of her suspicions about his past, she wanted to make sure that he felt equal to her, even when he had to lead.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Sarah gets a wide smile on her face and sits back down in her chair.
Dark approaches the table of three.
"Hey Con- Dark," Zoe corrected. "Did you tell the where we were going?"
"Yeah, and I got that Xil guy to get supplies for us, so now we just have to wait for his return," Dark says, sitting in the chair between Zoe and Momo. "So, what are you guys up to?"

Rakgnarok

Fionn notices Mira walking closer, almost as if she wanted to be in front despite Fionn leading the way making Fionn concious about actually being in front of someone, feeling it is something inapropiate for him to do but being unable to walk behind her as she doesn't know where he is going to exactly, he instead lowers his head a bit and presses his arms tighter against his torso, trying to seem smaller, he then continues to speak, a bit softer than usual, "Um, r-rembember Illadoce? The one who gave me this flower? H-he asked to go pick him up before we left.. He said he lives in a forge in the outskirts of town in this direction.." He says nervously.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Oh, okay," Mira said, noticing the change in his posture and falling back a little. "So... What happened between you two? Other than the flower thing."

YandereTsun

"Nothing much. Sarah drew something cute, though," she said, with a smile. "I'm just waiting for Yumo to get back here since we'll be leaving soon," Momo replied.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Yumo's your sibling I take it?" Dark says, never having met Yumo, or not remembering meeting Yumo.

YandereTsun

"Yes, and I haven't seen him today..." Momo said. "I would guess that he fell asleep somewhere again... or he must've finished all those books that he carried around since we left Macaria..." she continued, with a sigh.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"I'm sure he'll turn up before we leave," Dark says. "And if not, we could always go looking for him."

Bed head zed

"So that watch has some kind of importance?" Falaos replies. "Have you found its purpose yet?"

Rakgnarok

"Well, um, he might have... Accidentally.. s-stung me.." He says nervously lowering his voice even more, "But I'm fine! And he apologized, so, um, i-its ok, right?" He adds quickly.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Well, if you think it's alright, then it is," Mira said softly. "But you don't have to force yourself to forgive him. Self-deceit is- Oh, I... Probably shouldn't quote religious books at you..."

Are You Freddy For Ready

The cloaked figure who had watched Dark and Mira's conversation the night earlier was crouched on the roof of a building near the Monk's library. The figure stood up and disappeared, reappearing moments later in the library. They began looking around the shelves, trying to find a certain book...

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

'What are you doing?' Lidia asked in the cloaked figure's mind, shock and confusion lacing her voice. She got up as quickly as she could and moved towards them.

Are You Freddy For Ready

The figure stops looking for the book they are searching for and blocks Lidia's telepathic communication. They go back to looking, going faster due to being found.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Excuse me, state your business," Lidia said verbally, noticing the mental disconnect. She was now directly behind the figure. Two other monks noticed the disturbance and approached to back the raptor mix up.

Are You Freddy For Ready

The figure managed to find the book they were looking for right as they were approached by the three monks. The figure turns their head to the monks, revealing a masked face under the cloak's hood. Mere moments later, the figure disappears, leaving a book missing from the shelf they had stood in front of moments before...

Rakgnarok

Fionn blushes slightly, clearly embarrased at Mira's insinuation, "Um.. So, earlier you said you wanted to talk to me, you know, um, before Illadoce came to talk to me? Um, would you maybe like to talk about that now?" He says, trying to change the subject.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Oh, yeah... Your last name is Wolffe, right?" Mira asked, avoiding eye contact.
Lidia scanned the shelf, immediately identified the book that had been taken, then looked back at the other two monks. "We'll need another copy of The Soul's Guidance as soon as possible. That was an ally's mask, so I know it'll be returned, but the lack of an explanation makes me concerned that it won't come back quickly."
"Ma'am? Which ally?" one of the two other monks asked. He had floppy ears and short horns on the side of his head. His muzzle looked like it had been cut off and stitched back on at some point.
"Our only masked allies," Lidia responded calmly.
"Oh, yes, of course ma'am. Shall we send a messenger to their city to ask about it?" the bull anthro asked.
"Yes, that would be for the best. We don't like to be left in the dark after all. Gamey, would you like to do that?" the raptor asked the other monk.
"Yes ma'am, I could do that," she replied with a slight bow.
"Good. You'll have to take a horse to get there in a timely manner. Or you could go with Ryan," Lidia said, examining her feathers.
"I'll go with Ryan," the human woman said, then turned around to find him.
He was standing right there, and had been for a little bit, having approached to figure out what the ruckus was about.
"Oh! Hello there!" Gamey said with a smile.
"Climb on," Ryan said, kneeling down as best he could to allow the much smaller person to climb onto his back.
Gamey did so quickly, and the two were off.
Lidia walked off, headed towards the balcony stairs. She needed to write a letter to another smaller library to see if she could get the book in.

Rakgnarok

"Oh, Yeah, it is, I think I know what you wanted to talk about.." He says looking downwards rather sadly.
"H-hugh already told me about it.. You guys met someone else with that last name before and he.. passed... Correct?.." he says softly.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Well... Yes, but that's not why I wanted to talk to you about it," she said with a sigh. "It's about the history behind the name, actually." She took a deep breath. "And how that ties into the way you act."

Rakgnarok

"History?" He asks turning to her rather confused, "I didn't know my name had history, as far as i know its just a name.." He adds, "And um, w-what do you mean by "the way I act"?.." he says turning away nervously.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"There's... Really no way to ask this other than bluntly... Were you a slave?" Mira asked, trying to be as careful with her words as possible, but knowing all too well that they would be painful.

Rakgnarok

Fionn stops dead on his tracks, "I uh, uh, n.. h... y.. W-what?.." He mutters out clearly shocked and in disbelief of what Mira said, hardly knowing how to answer that.

Are You Freddy For Ready

The figure watched the two monks leave the library from the building they had been perched on before entering the library. After the two monks had left their sightline, they disappeared once again.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira stopped as quickly as she could so as not to walk away from the wolf. "It's okay if you were. I won't hold it against you. It's just... You act like you were. Like you are sometimes."

Sp3ctr3EX

"Come on guys we are almost there, the place is close by now." Raole said as he kept running, leading the way for Xil and Sub.

Rakgnarok

"I-I'm not.. I just... I had to help Uncle Ru with the housework and.. and i just like to be.. polite.." He says, wrapping his arms around himself and looking away, clearly in denial.
"Good, the sooner we get this done, the better." Xil says, he then takes a quick glance back and smirks upon not seeing Liam following them anymore.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Self-deceit is the root in which the lies and evils grow," Mira finished the piece of scripture she had started earlier. She looked down the road and waited silently for Aodhfionn to either say something, or keep walking.

PBEgaming

"Alright, I'm getting pretty excited. I've never ridden in a carriage before." May admitted.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Oh neat, the sooner we get there, the sooner we can get out of this place, apart from the massive library, there isn't anything exciting here." He said as he continued running, looking ahead to see if he can spot it.

Rakgnarok

Fionn looks at Mira again with shock in his face, he then looks downwards thoughtfully, "W-we should hurry... We don't want to be left behind, right?.." He says as he turns around and continues walking with his head lowered, seemingly sadder than before.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira walked beside him in silence. "Sorry if I went too far," she muttered after a while.

Rakgnarok

"I-Its ok, I can see why you'd think that.. B-but thats not the case, Uncle Ru.. H-he cares for me... Uncle Ru cares for me..." He says, clearly trying to convince himself.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"The name could be from generations past," Mira said, trying to ease Fionn's mind on the matter.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh smiled a bit. "Well, except it helps a lot with all the... Time matter, I don't know what else to find..." He made a slight frown as he quickly answered.

Rakgnarok

"R-right.. It probably is... I never even heard of names meaning such a thing.." He says.

YandereTsun

"That's true..." Momo muttered. "I just hope he'll get here soon. I do not feel like there's something good that will happen if he leaves off too much..." she continued, with a sigh.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Does he do this often?" Zoe asks. "Disappear without telling you, I mean."

Bed head zed

"Oh... Maybe you'll find something eventually." Falaos replied.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh chuckled a bit at the response. "Well, it helps controlling myself and my powers, also it's pretty nice to listen to if you need to sleep!" he said enthusiastically, holding it over the center of the table for the three Elementals to hear the ticking sound.

Bed head zed

"Your powers? Do you control Time?" Falaos asked.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Well it at least used to mean that, and I know that the tradition of slavekeeping is still around to this day, so... I had to check," Mira said, then took a breath. "Because... I really don't want you to feel like you're any less than the rest of us. We're a team, all of us with different assets that can help out. Sub's a money machine, Dark's good with swords, I can cook, and you... You can heal wounds like nobody else. Even if you don't know how yet, it's amazing what you can do. And I'm sure with enough practice, you could turn into one of the most valuable members of our group."

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh chuckled in a bit of disbelief. "Wh-what? You don't know?" He laughed softly, not wanting to sound rude, but preferring the path of amusement rather than the offended one. He calmed down after only a few seconds, and looked at the fox with joyful eyes. "It seems so!" he simply added.

Bed head zed

Falaos frowned. "Uh, yeah, I haven't really had the time to find out what everyone controls..." He replied.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh looked around. "Oh, right! You should have looked around you in the library, then!" he said, before adding softly, leaving Max the opportunity to hear:"I actually remember when I was with you in Macaria..."

Bed head zed

"Huh? What do you mean?" Falaos asks, not remembering being with Hugh in Macaria.

Paradox.XXIV

"You don't remember? We were at the hospital, and that's the very moment you told me about the book..." He tried to explain.

Bed head zed

"Oh yeah..." Falaos says, having forgotten about that conversation. "I guess my memory's kinda bad."

Rakgnarok

Fionn looks downwards thoughtfully for a moment as Mira speaks, as she finishes a soft smile appears on his face, "Thats very nice of you to say, thank you, it means a lot to me.. And um, I'm sorry if I was rude before, its just... Thats a very.. Um, s-slavery is a very ugly thing.."

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh nodded and shrugged it off. "It's alright, I'm just reminding you why we got here for, actually." He looked concerned all of a sudden. "I mean... Yeah, that was it."

Bed head zed

"Okay..." Falaos looks at the door. "I wonder when they'll be back..." He said, trying to change the topic.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh shrugged again, and leaned back onto his chair, consulting his locket. "Who are you asking?" he asked with a smile.
After a bit, he still answered. "In less than one hour or so, I'd bet."

Bed head zed

"Okay." Says Falaos. Falaos then tries to think of a conversation topic.

Sp3ctr3EX

After sometime running, Raole finally stops and turns around for Xil and Sub. "Alright, here we are." He says while breathing hard from all the running he did. "Damn, I hadn't run like that in awhile, no wonder I got tired quickly." Raole then points to a nearby building with a stable by the side. "Its this building over here."

Toreadorfreddy

Liam walked back into the Inn, and proceeded to skulk about near the outskirts of the group there.

TheOneTrueCardinal

Sub stopped right behind Raole to look at the building. He wiped a bit of sweat from his forehead, breathe out a bit and spoke up, "You're tired already??" He said. "You're gonna pass out if you tried running a lap around Ironberg's wall."

Rakgnarok

Xil stops, he'd seem perfectly fine, only breathing slightly heavier than usual "So this is the place huh? Guess you did know after all, good, Thanks, guess its time for us to do our part now." The tiger says, heading towards the door.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Well, I got the money ready, let's do this" Sub said as he went ahead of Xil to open the door, then he proceeded to go in.
As he stepped in, he immediately froze in time due to the existence of June conveniently placed there, now he has to wait for Jaz to get back before he can continue on with his life.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"I know it is," Mira said, a sliver of pain creeping into her voice. She pushed it away quickly though. "How much further do we have to go?" she asked, eager to get off of the topic now.
June looked up from petting one of the horses in the stable. "Oh hey, you're in that Elementals group, aren't you?" she asked upon recognizing Sub. "Are you heading out of town already?"

Sp3ctr3EX

Raole watched Xil and Sub. "Guess I will just stay here outside waiting for May." He says to himself before looking into the distance. "Weird, I don't see her yet. Maybe she was just fooling around." Raole thinks to himself.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"We're just here to get carriages and supplies before we go out." He said as he stepped in "You were the one that teleported Mira away that one time and you were there at the cafe, I don't believe we formally met."

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"No, I suppose we haven't. I'm June Alenger, an adept Lesser Spirit Mage of The Coalition of Mages," the larger woman said, holding out her hand for Sub to shake.

Rakgnarok

"Just a bit further, it IS by the forest line, he said it was a forge so it should be easy to spot.." Fionn answers.
"Uhh Right, whatever, do you own this joint or something or who do I have to talk to to get some carriages?" the tiger asks.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Alright," Mira said, shivering slightly- partially due to the cold, partially due to her unease with being near the forest so soon after her attempted kidnapping. Ayfy may be a great Elemental, but it was clear he wouldn't be very helpful if that were to happen again.
"Stablemaster's thataway," June said, nodding her head to the left. In the direction she motioned stood a well-dressed fruit bat anthro.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"I'm Sylvan Hectus" He said as he shaked her hand "Nice to meet you." He looked towards Xil. "Did they ever tell you how many carriages we need??"

Rakgnarok

Fionn keeps walking clearly getting somewhat lost in thought, he'd be smiling slightly but his ears and tail would be droopy, he'd be playing nervously with his fingers and he'd seem to be shrinking slightly as he walks, clearly having a lot on his head right now and not knowing how to sort it all out.
"Yeah, about six, your human friend doesnt even know how many people are in your group but hopefully six carriages will do." he answers to sub, he then looks at June for a moment, "... Name's Xil by the way, but anyway, nice meeting ya I guess, gotta take care of that now so, later." he says quickly and rather indifferently, not even giving her time to answer before walking towards the fruit bat anthro, "Hey, good day to you, excuse me, I'm looking to get some carriages to take me and a large group to Harknest as soon as possible, think ya can help me out?" The tiger says going straight to the point.

TechnoXenoHolic

"To Harknest, mm?" the bat responds, and he shuffles the sheets of paper he's carrying a bit and skims over some of the information written on one. "How many in your group? Return trip, or one-way?"

Rakgnarok

"Well, uh, im not really sure how many exactly, we have a lot of people in our group, over fifteen apparently, oh and we have two very tall people at least so were gonna need two spacy carriages for those two to fit in properly, i think maybe five or six carriages would do.." He says scratching his head as he thinks about it, "As for the second question, uh, i think its gonna be one-way, hold on" He turns to Sub, "Hey, tower wolf, would you say it'd be a one-way trip or are you guys planning to return here right after?" He asks.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"We're heading for Harknest, then Tailos..." He paused to think for a bit. "We most likely need a one-way trip." He replied.

TechnoXenoHolic

"One-way it is, then," said the bat, scribbling a note on his page. "We don't offer multi-step service here anyway, even if you did want it. And I'll give you five carriages." He looked up from his paper to give Xil and Sub a mildly condescending look. "Fitting everyone in is your problem."

Rakgnarok

"Fair enough, we'll manage, how much will it be and when could you have them ready for us? We still need to get some supplies so we don't mind waiting a bit." The tiger asks.

TechnoXenoHolic

"I can have them ready in an hour, or half that if you pay an extra [amount of dragon currency to be edited by Jaz later]'s worth," said the bat. "And you'll be paying [a larger amount] for the carriage rental."

TheOneTrueCardinal

"So do you only accept [dragon currency]?? We only got coins unfortunately." Sub said as he walked to the counter.

TechnoXenoHolic

"Oh, every establishment in Vile Root accepts all Entherstian country, don't worry about that. We just price things in ribbons here." The bat stepped lightly up behind the counter and grabbed a sheet of paper, writing a bill of sale out quickly in an elegant hand. He converted the numbers swiftly on an abacus settled to his left. Then he passed the bill across the counter to Sub and said, "Here. I've converted it into human coinage rates for you. Have a read through the terms, then sign and pay and you can come back in an hour for your carriages."

TheOneTrueCardinal

Sub grabbed the bill and read it carefully, while converting the chunk of platinum in his pouch into coins. He grabbed the money needed for the carriage and an extra for the reduced time, placed them on the counter. He signed the bill with the nearby pen from the counter and placed it there as well. "Here's the money, we'll be coming back in 30 minutes."

TechnoXenoHolic

"Excellent," said the bat, snatching up the money and quickly counting it. He took the bill and the coins, slipped the latter into his pocket, and rolled up the former. "Off with you until then, shoo; we need room to ready the horses!"

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Thank you." He said as he turned to Xil. "Can you go tell the group that we have atleast 30 minutes to prepare?? I need to go get supplies and we need to warn the group first."

Rakgnarok

Xil nods as Sub thanks the bat anthro, he then looks at sub as sub speaks to him, "Right, you and that other guy go start getting supplies, I'll run back to the inn and tell them to pack their stuff and get moving." He says before exiting the building and sprinting at full speed back to the inn, not even bothering to explain Raole the situation.

TheOneTrueCardinal

Sub went outside the stable and headed to Raole. "Hey Raole, do you know where I can get supplies like food and water for the whole trip to Harknest?" He asked.

Sp3ctr3EX

Raole turns to Sub with a dumb look on his face before snapping back into reality. "Oh yes, I know Sylvan, its pretty close by actually, its just right over there." Raole indicates pointing to another building close by the one Xil and Sub were just in.
"By the way, what the heck did I just witnessed? Xil just sprinted off to the way we came from." He asks the wolf.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Oh, he's heading off to tell the group that we're going in 30 minutes. Anyways, thanks for the info." He said as he walked towards the building Raole pointed.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Wait Sylvan, I can help you if its really necessary, you seem like you could use a hand or two." Raole says while getting beside the wolf.
"Also do you mind if I call you by that nickname everyone knows you for, Sub is it?" He asks.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Well, I guess a few extra hands could help. And no, I wouldn't mind if you called me Sub." He said as he opened the door to the shop.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Alright then Sub." Raole said in a cheerful tone.

TheOneTrueCardinal

He went around the shop to look for food and water. He arrived at the food section and checked to see how much he would need.

YandereTsun

"Quite often," she replied. "He would always wander off by himself without informing anyone."
Before Momo could continue what she was saying, Yumo entered, carrying books as he yawned. "I do not think looking for him would be needed," Momo said.
He walked to their table, placing down the books, as he rubbed his left eye.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

June had followed Sub and Raole out of the stables and to the shop. "You won't mind if I come with, will you? Mira and I still have a lot to learn from each other. Besides, extra hands," she said, raising her hands with a smile.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"...Well, I guess we wouldn't mind that much, extra hands is always welcome, even if we have enough already." He said, accepting June's help.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh clicked his locket open and closed a second time, and smiled. "Oh well, it'll be for even sooner than that!" he said.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Hello. I take it you are Momo's sibling, Yumo?" Zoe asks Yumo. Sarah was too invested in perfecting her drawing to notice anything around her again.

Rakgnarok

Fionn continues to walk, he'd seem to be lost in thought at this moment, far enough to not notice they are reaching the edge of town.
Xil rushes towards the inn, running past May at full speed, he'd stop with a screeching halt just outside the inn and stand there for a moment as he composes himself, he enters the inn panting very slightly and heads straight towards dark, "Hey, we leave in 30, tell your friends to pack their stuff, I'll be waiting outside." He says quickly and heads outside before dark can say anything.

TechnoXenoHolic

Wisp, who was still tucked into one corner of the inn, startled when Xil came in so quickly. His keen hearing let him pick up what Xil said, so he slowly, quietly, started gathering his belongings from around his feet into his lap.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Right, okay," Dark says after Xil leaves. He easily leaves the conversation at his table as the main focus was on Yumo and walks over to the other table where Hugh and friends sat.
"Hey, Xil says we'll be leaving soon, so meet him outside when you're ready," Dark says, waiting for a response from the people at the table.
He doesn't tell Firaas and Jack this info due to not knowing that they're in the group. He also doesn't tell Momo, Yumo, Sarah, and Zoe as they most likely heard the info when Xil told him.

Bed head zed

"Alright!" Falaos gets up and walks over to the innkeeper, returning his key and paying for the room.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Ayfy, I think we're here," Mira said, lightly grabbing the wolf's arm to stop him from walking forwards anymore.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Oh hello." Raole says as his eyes catch June. "And who are you madam, if you don't mind me asking, are you a friend of Sub?" He asks the woman.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Not exactly, but I suppose a sort of honorary member of his group," the woman replied.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Oh I see, I'm Raole, I guess you could say that I am also part of Sub's group, somewhat, or will be part of it. Anyway thanks for the help madam." He finishes talking giving June a smile.

Rakgnarok

Fionn looks up to Mira, "Oh, right, sorry, I was just... Ahem, well, we should hurry, the others might be waiting." He looks at the house nearby, "I guess we should go knock.." He says, walking towards the door.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Alrighty," Mira said, rushing up to the door and rapping on it.
June wore a big grin.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh looked around. "H-How about Mira and Fionn?" He immediately asked. His mind of course would have gotten to think about them. "Should I take their stuff and leave a word, so I could bring them to us as soon as they arrive?" The rabbit had an idea, but wouldn't clearly state it.

HolyTraitor

There was a very loud sound coming from the other side of the door, and when the door was knocked, the noise stopped. "One sec! Shop's open!" Footsteps approached the door, and lo and behold, Illadoce was there, holding blacksmithing tools and wearing, obviously, blacksmith clothes. His face had burn marks on it and his tail was taped to his body. He raised an eyebrow when he saw Mira.
"Oh, hello Mira. Is there... something you need, or are we leaving?"

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"We're leaving. At least I think that's the plan. So... Pack up whatever you need to, and make sure people know you'll be gone from the shop for a while," the cat said. Her smile would seem slightly fake to Fionn, but would be less noticeable by Illadoce.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"I don't think they even have stuff here," Dark says to Hugh. "From what I can tell, most of us don't even carry luggage."

Rakgnarok

"Oh I can help you with your luggage!" He says enthusiastically, he then looks at Mira and the enthusiasm vanishes instantly, "N-not that I have to... I just wanna help.." He adds nervously.

YandereTsun

"Yes, I am. And you are...?" Yumo asked. Momo was just watching Sarah draw.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"I'm Zoe Acker, and this is my sister Sarah," Zoe says, gesturing to Sarah. "We're friends of Co- Dark... Dark." she adds, correcting herself. Sarah continued to draw, not noticing the audience she had picked up, the audience being Momo.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh shrugged. "I hope so, but how will they know how to get to us from here? I could..." Hugh stopped to think.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Hmmm, you're right." Dark says. "I guess I can stay behind here and wait for them while you all are packing the carriages."
