The Day Before…

”What do you mean, we need to go on a shopping trip? We just got back! I’m supposed to, like… Update my journal or something.” The idea of setting out on another trip so soon, when he could be resting seemed to rub Layne the wrong way as he gave the shaman an incredulous look.

”I need to find material to remake my robes. It’s not like I can just skip over to the next town and buy one in the middle of “Jouran devil” land." Ada crossed her arms, giving the cleric a sad look. “If you don’t go with me, who will? Besides, you love crowds!”

A small sigh escaped him as he rubbed at his neck a bit, taking a little glance around the area he had claimed for himself, he closed the pages of his journal as he sat up, ”You couldn’t ask one of the others to go with you? What about…” He trailed off, a little mumble escaping him as he grinned, ”I bet Cassia could help you! She could get you a real steal of a deal too.”

Layne’s wordplay was met with an icy stare. After a beat passed, Ada coughed to break the silence.

"I would like to not get in any trouble if I can. It took me months to get the townspeople to not avoid me, much less talk to me. I don’t trust anyone but you, Yue, or Leon to not make a scene. Leon’s busy, Yue disappears when I enter a room, and that leaves you. If you’re really not up to it, though… I’ll pay for dinner… and maybe lend you that novel you’ve been asking for?"

The proposition was met with a little hum, his hand rubbing at his chin for a moment as he considered it. ”Dinner and the book, all for escorting you to the town, huh? I guess it couldn’t hurt… And no funny business, huh? You really just want to try to replace the material, no… Grand adventures or hidden goals?”

"What, you don’t want me to set you up with the cute shopkeeper boy? But you two would be cute together!” Ada teased, grinning like an opossum, "But no, just robe stuff and the bookstore… Unless you wanted to go somewhere else?”

He let out a little grumble from the teasing coming from Ada, his eyes rolling a little bit as he hummed, ”I guess I could stop by the bookstore, I’m always on the lookout for things to keep my interest…” He shrugged, giving her a little defeated sigh as he did, ”Fine, fine, I’ll tag along. No trying to set me up though.”

It didn’t take long for the two to get prepared for the journey, and the trip itself was relatively uneventful. The two arrived in Neston near dusk, the sun beginning to set as they found an inn to stay in for the night, ready to rise early in the morning in order to get Ada’s ‘chores’ out of the way...




The Next Day…

The duo awoke early as they intended, groggy from rising before the sun had fully rose. After a quick breakfast and waiting for the sun to emerge, they set out to complete their tasks. They started with the bookstore, an easy enough one since they would be running all over the rest of the town after this most likely. Ada went on her own to pick out her own books, while Layne browsed in another section, waiting for her to find him. On another day, they probably could’ve spent hours finding for the perfect books, but…

They didn’t have the time. After about an hour of early morning book browsing, Layne went off to find Ada and drag her out of the store after paying for their goods.

What followed was a few hours of torturous shopping, all without pay off. Each shop seemed less equipped to handle their needs than the last, and it was with a heavy hand that Layne forced Ada to accept that they weren’t going to find what they were looking for here. Without any alternatives, Layne had her pick out some fabric that was similar enough, not exact, but still close enough to her tastes… And lots of it. Similarly, he picked up some thread and needles, along with some other supplies that would make future repairs to clothing simpler…

And the two began the journey back to the base.



"'You really do look Aeoran!', they said! 'You don't need those creepy garments!', they insisted!"

Ada stormed into the base with bags in her hands, grumbling loudly. Unlike any other day, she was wearing clothes that could be deemed 'more normal' in the area. She appeared to be a swordswoman, rather than a shaman, complete with her purple hair up in a ponytail. One might even think that she resembled a character from the Sacred World... however, the sunburn she was sporting would stop that thought in its tracks.

"Damn merchants, they've seen my face before, what's with those reactions?!"

Shortly after the girl barged in, Layne followed behind her, a little laugh escaping him as he held his hand up in front of his mouth. He tried to keep it from being too noticeable, but it was practically impossible to hide the fact that he was amused from Ada’s frustration as he shrugged his shoulders a bit. His focus shifted upwards as he hummed, ”Hey, hey, it’s okay. We’ll find a way to replace your robe. Maybe I can take a look and see if I can stitch it back together?”

He chuckled softly her as she barged through the doorway, holding his own bags over his shoulder as he hummed to himself, taking a little glance around the entryway of the base as he walked in with her, ”I mean, I don’t have the most experience with it, but I can’t make them much worse, can I?”

“It’s in absolute tatters, Layne. I only have the one big shred I was showing the merchants…” Ada sighed, producing said piece of fabric and waving it at the cleric, "And I couldn’t find a material that quite matched it… We can work on it, but they didn’t seem too enthused about the idea of me making a new robe."

He rubbed at his cheek for a moment, ”I mean… We could make you a nice hand towel with the scrap?” He grinned a little bit more as he watched her wave the piece of fabric around, a little mumble escaping him as he did, “This is what happens when you get too attached to a fancy outfit! It gets destroyed! Why do you think I keep my outfit simple? Sleeveless shirt, pants, jacket if it’s cold. That’s all you need!”

"You wouldn’t get it..." Ada puffed her cheeks out, placing the scrap back into the bag and pulling a book out in its place, "At least they had the second book in the Ribald Tales of the Faith War series available. Maybe I’ll lend it to you if you can remake that ‘fancy outfit’, hm?”

As she playfully stuck her tongue out at Layne, she heard some noise coming from the office. Peeking her head in, she found Rona moving about, tidying up the small room. Raising a brow and setting her bags down at the entrance to the office, Ada cleared her throat, alerting Rona to the lobster in the room.

"So, uh… whatcha up to in here?”


You are an insane person and very creative.

"Hmm. That should do." Leon patted the wooden wall of the company's building, having finished patched it up. Ever since they had gone to the Desert Rider's base, there had been something that had been bothering the young mercenary leader. The building that they had been in was one that seemed to mirror the situation their own base had. As such, the boy was reminded of the giant gaping hole in the wall and, as a result ended up worrying about any of kind of damage that needed patching up in their own home. While he had spent the early part of the day looking for any kind of place that needed patching up, the building seemed to be in good enough shape - at least the walls did - and so there was very little work he actually had to put in patching up what little damage he did find. 

 

As he was getting ready to move back inside, the boy was stopped by Aleithe, coming to ask him to spar. Leon was a bit confused by the comment, not really understanding why Aleithe thought they were under-preforming. . "Well, I just finished what I was doing, and don't really have much else for the day. So sure." Grabbing the spare planks of wood he had, the boy said, "wait near the front, I'll get the practice weapons." With that, the boy merely made his way through the building, hearing the usual bantering voices of Layne and Ada throughout the building, merely saying, "oh, I guess they're back." Making his way to the main storage room, the boy put his supplies away, grabbing the wooden swords before making his way back outside. 

 

"Aleithe." He called out to the fellow mercenary, tossing him the wooden sword when his attention was grabbed. Twirling the blade he had in his hand, he walked a small distance away from them, before turning to face them. Getting into a fighting stance, the boy said, "whenever you're ready."

Hmmmmm... it doesn't feel quite right. Cassia must have tried sticking the mystery dagger from the bandit fort in at least twenty different places and positions near her bed by now. No matter where she left it or how she left it, nothing really clicked with her. At a glance, this thing was probably worthless in the end, but Cassia's gut was telling her otherwise. If her instinct was right, this was really something nifty she'd found. Far too valuable to just leave lying in plain sight, for certain. She'd tried hanging it fron the wall, the side of her bed, the ceiling she even tried tying it under the bed where it would be harder to find. Nothing felt right.

 

Guess I should keep it on me anyway. I'll just have to be extra careful with it. And so, Cassia tucked the mystery dagger away into her shirt, before glancing around the room. This was where the girls of the Iron Falcons slept, but right now, it seemed to be just her and Yue in here. Ada had gone shopping just yesterday, and as much as Cassia wanted to follow her and Layne for the trip, she had to admit she'd probably look suspicious, stalking a pair of innocent shoppers like that. So she opted to stay here instead.

 

Might as well chat it up with Yue; Cassia couldn't help but imagine the other Falcons were all keeping themselves busy in one way or another. "So, how about that new guy?" she asked. "Looks like a real fighter, he does. I could live without the lizard, though."

"And if I turn this that way..and shove these back...we should be able to put this here and...When did we get this?" Rona was holding a stuffed animal, specifically a lobster, wearing Yon'Lou garb, and giving it a confused look.

 

"So, uh… whatcha up to in here?”

 

Rona turned around with a start as a voice suddenly spoke up. It took her a few moments to recognize that it was Ada. The Wyvern Rider looked at the girl, then glanced at the stuffed lobster, and back at Ada. "Uncanny..." she muttered before hastily stowing the thing away on the shelf.

 

She cleared her throat. "Ah, just doing some inventory. This place hasn't gotten much cleaning since we came here. Thought it could do with some fixing up now that we have some downtime!" She hesitated. The Jouran had never been good at small talk. And usually avoided situations that would cause her to be cornered. She'd leave and mention having to feed Cormag but she wasn't done here. She didn't want to come off as flighty. But then what would she say? If she took too long Ada might grow suspicious..."So." She began, coming up with a response on the fly. "That looks painful, you should probably put some ointment on it."

Raynor was a bit surprised that their leader would give him the javelins they found, something along the lines of not being able to pay him. Which felt wrong, they helped him far more than he did them. He had met a few people along his travels, but none were like this. It was touching, almost.

 

"I'm glad you got your friend back," Leon looked curiously at the Salamander, bringing Raynor back into reality. "But regardless, these aren't the only bandits in Southern Aeora and Northern Aeora isn't exactly...welcoming for you. So, if you want, you can travel with us for the time being. Unless you have somewhere else to be." Raynor tilted his head at first, processing what was happening. Were they... asking him to join their group? Raynor smiled a bit before nodding.

"I think I'd like travelin' with the lot of you. So yeah, count me in. Raynor of the Turbulent Wind, now at your service,"

 

 

Raynor had to admit, the place these Iron Falcons stayed was pretty nice. It was homely, not overly extravagant. It would be pretty easy to memorize where he was supposed to go, and where everything was. After giving himself a quick rundown of the place's layout, he went to the stable, which looked much more recently built than the rest of the place. He could see that Cormag was showing Gojira places that the wyvern had claimed as his, and the stuff he had claimed as his. Gojira didn't look too amused, but he didn't fight back or try to assert dominance. 

Raynor made some mental notes before whistling at the two. "Hey you two, brought some meat. Thought you could celebrate the new roommate the two of you got," He said before pulling two hunks of meat out of his pouch and tossing them at the two mounts. Gojira caught his in his mouth and went over to a corner Cormag didn't claim, chewing away at the food. "Behave now, Gojira," Raynor commented before heading back towards the building.

On his way there, he saw Leon and someone he didn't recongize to be... sparring? Yeah, that's probably what they were doing. He sat on the ground, to watch, chuckling a bit. "Oy, boss!" Raynor called out to Leon. "I'd just like to talk after you finish up there. Oh! Maybe I can take on the winner!" Yeah, that could be fun!

"whenever you're ready."

 

"Always ready. Let's do our best."

 

Accepting the wooden sword, Aleithe went into a stance. He held his sword up high before him with both of his hands. Leon was a more experienced fighter than he was, and out of their duels so far, most were won by Leon. It was not that Aleithe wanted to win over him. He simply wanted to get himself better, and the only way to do that was to keep challenging himself with someone better than him. His body was facing up front. The sword was in front of him as he continued to eye for Leon's movements. From the other sword users in the group, of which there was only Chitose as the other, Leon was the closest in style with Aleithe. Their duels thus would follow the same rhythm all the time.

 

And it would start with Aleithe himself making an attack.

 

A fast step forward, and a blow aimed towards the neck area. If there was one thing Aleithe prized for himself more than Leon, it was his speed. Leon was usually able to read him easily despite of that however. Aleithe then withdrew his sword, and went for a forward thrust this time. He took great caution not to opening himself for a counter, pushing his body to keep a certain range away from Leon's predicted reach. It was not a fool proof solution, but it was the battle plan that he was used to.

 

"Lately I have not been able to think or perform properly. I have no idea about the issue, but it seems that my mind is being wracked by an unwelcome thought."

It had been a day or so since they arrived, and Yue had managed to settle in, make sure Mr. Tweets and Miss Scarlet, two of her regular winged visitors, were fine, feed Chang'e, and mend the rips she had gotten in her hanfu. Sewing wasn't really a skill she advertised, but it was something she was actually decent in.

 

She was about to head to the kitchen and see if she could find grab some more treats for Chang'e, when Cassia, who had been poking around her bed--Yue hadn't been paying attention before, but was there something wrong with her bed--approached her.

 

"So, how about that new guy?" the redhead asked. "Looks like a real fighter, he does. I could live without the lizard, though."

 

"H-he's good," the archer responded, hanging her head guiltily. He had fought a lot better than her, that's for sure. "Kinda scary," she muttered, before brightening at the comment on the lizard. "Eh? You could? But the salamander is sooo cute," her voice, which had been rather meek and quiet before, while still soft, had grown obviously happier. "I could just go and pet him every single day, yes I could," she smiled. "Did you see how gentle, yet independent he was? Such a sweetie. I can't wait to go visit him." She barely paused for breath before continuing. "I wonder what he eats. Meat? You know, I've never met a salamander face to face like this. That's just so incredibly wonderful I, I just don't even know what to say! If he could talk, I wonder what he would say." She sighed dreamily. "Isn't he just precious?"

 

She came to a little later, remembering what Cassia had said too. "Oops," she blushed, looking down. "Um...yeah. I think it's a g-good thing he joined...the more the...merrier," she mumbled. She wondered if the thief could tell she was lying about that. Probably. Weren't they trained to see through those kind of things? But really, she was just uncomfortable around people in general, and the more people there were, the more likely she was going to do something stupid and embarrass herself, especially if they were scary people, and even normal people were frightening, honestly, and animals were so much better. Why couldn't people be like animals? Or why couldn't she get along with them like she did animals?

 

Yue found poking her fingers together really, really riveting right at that moment.

As the two had gotten into their respective fighting stances, Leon looked over to see the newest member of the Falcons sit down near them. It was strange having someone new call him "boss," as he wasn't all too comfortable with even the more veteran members referring to him in such status, yet he did his best to not let it show. When the Jouran asked to fight the winner, Leon merely said, "um, yeah, sure." While Leon didn't really want to spar twice in a row, he figured that it would probably be best for him or Aleithe to spar with the new man, seeing as he was the first lance user the group had. 

 

Turning his attention back to the opponent in front of him, readying himself for Aleithe's first move. With his opponent's blade coming towards his neck, Leon merely raised his own weapon slightly, moving it to the side to have the blade merely clash against it. As Aleithe moved to stab at him next, the boy merely stepped backward, slashing at the wooden blade to parry it away. As he did, he went a swift counter, cutting upward though the blade only meeting air as Aleithe had moved backward. "Well, I can't say I have much in way of complaints." Leon responded to Aleithe's comments on their own performance. 

 

"I can't say I've been paying too much attention to what you've been doing the past few missions, but I'm pretty sure you've been performing well. Maybe it was because you were without Reina for the last one?" Thinking on it, he then asked, "well, are these thoughts about combat or something else?" After asking the question, Leon then went in for his own attack. Stepping forward, the boy slashed once at Aleithe's side. Thinking they would parry the attack, Leon attacked the same side again, only this time going higher up the kinshi knights' blade to knock it off balance before flicking his wrist to bring his own blade down at them with a swift cut.

"In combat, as one of the seniors for our new members, as well as a member of Iron Falcons in general. Lately I had shown myself to be inadequate in my performance of those roles. I don't think it was related to Reina at least"

 

Rather than parrying, Aleithe sidestepped away from the attack, narrowly missing the sweeping swing but avoiding Leon's attempt to disarm him. When it came to maneuvering the blades as well as feinting, Leon was way above him, but so far what he had shown was the usual movements that he showed in their previous sparring sessions. Aleithe soon went to the offensive again. It was a lunge this time, followed by a quick flick as he expected the lunge itself to be parried or dodged. Aleithe's legwork would allow him to shift his body to the side in an anticipation of a riposte.

 

"Or perhaps, I might still just be thinking about Chitose leaving the group. Would she be fine?"

As Leon's strike was evaded by Aleithe, the boy merely pivoted on his food to keep facing the man. As he went for a lunge Leon parried the blade away once more, only for this to be responded to with a flick. After parrying the lunge, Leon had taken a step back, and holding his blade up to deflect the quick hit, his hand being forced a bit down from the sloppiness of the parry and the force of the attack. Stepping back, the boy looked towards the man, seeing that his stance was one of anticipation. So, instead of going straight for a counter attack, Leon stood his ground, merely gauging his opponent.

 

"It's not your fault she left, if that's what you're worried about. Our job is dangerous, and even with Layne's help, we can't expect to come out unscathed every time. You know this, I know, but Chitose probably didn't until then. That's just how it is." His expression seemed more stern then normal, but relaxed a bit before saying, "I can't really say for sure, but Tellan's safe now so, as long she's there, she'll be fine. Now, eyes forward." With that, the boy began his advance towards Aleithe. With a quick step, he went down for what appeared to be a simple slash. However, his swing did not finish before his step did, and so as Leon's foot touched the ground, he turned his cut into a lunge, springing towards Aleithe.

"But in her case, it really was my oversight."

 

Aleithe failed to anticipate the lunge properly, and shifted his body too late, making the wooden sword to graze off him. Should they wee in actual combat, it would have caused a noticeable wound. Aleithe attempted to follow it up with his own strike, but his unsteady footing ended up making it a complete whiff.

 

"We could have assigned our people effectively to cover our right side, but this oversight ended up forcing Chitose to deal with it on her own." Aleithe stopped himself, trying to correct his footing before going for a quick thrust. "I would normally feel disdain for such act, but at the same time, it is a necessary act for her to cover our position there."

"H-he's good. Kinda scary."

 

You're kidding, right? You should have seen him when he got his lizard back. Guy's a big softie. Not that I'd want to be on the wrong end of that lance.

 

When Yue got to the topic of Raynor's lizard though, she seemed much more enthusiastic than with the person that owned it.

 

"Eh? You could? But the salamander is sooo cute. I could just go and pet him every single day, yes I could. Did you see how gentle, yet independent he was? Such a sweetie. I can't wait to go visit him. I wonder what he eats. Meat? You know, I've never met a salamander face to face like this. That's just so incredibly wonderful I, I just don't even know what to say! If he could talk, I wonder what he would say. Isn't he just precious? Oops. Um...yeah. I think it's a g-good thing he joined...the more the...merrier,"

 

"You don't have to lie to me, you know," Cassia commented. With a shrug, she continued "If you don't like him, you don't like him, and that's the way the cookie crumbles. Speaking of cookies..." Cassia got up from her bed, stretching her limbs a bit as she resumed "I could really go for something to eat right about now. You hungry?"

"Your skin looks cold. You should probably put some clothes on," Ada replied cheekily, beginning to lean against the doorframe. She suppressed a desire to wince as her red skin made contact with the surface, but held another bag out with her hand, shaking it slightly, a satisfied grin on her face.

 

"Well, if you have time to take care of this room... Do you wanna head with me to feed Cormag and the others? I made a stop in Neston for some snacks for them... Layne told me not to spend money on it, but I can't resist taking care of such a cutie!"

 

Ada beamed as she reached into the bag, showing examples of dried meats, corn, and other such things that... were probably fit for people. In fact, as Ada rifled through the foods, she could have sworn some of what she purchased was missing. Looking over her shoulder for her companion, Ada narrowed her eyes.

 

"... Layne, did you steal some of the food for the animals?"


You are an insane person and very creative.

"You don't have to lie to me, you know," Cassia commented.

 

"I-I...um..." Yue stammered, embarrassed at being caught out like that.

 

With a shrug, the thief continued "If you don't like him, you don't like him, and that's the way the cookie crumbles. Speaking of cookies..." Cassia got up from her bed, stretching her limbs a bit as she resumed "I could really go for something to eat right about now. You hungry?"

 

"S-sure," the archer replied, then looked up, eyes wide. "The kitchen...I think it has cookies...also a village about an hour away has food too." She didn't have a personal preference, as while the kitchen was closer and more convenient the village would allow her to stock up on extra supplies. She hadn't run out yet, though, so either way was fine for her.

 

Whichever way the redhead decided on, Yue would go along with little to no protest. The archer felt a little uncomfortable around the other girl still, but...she was just trying to be friendly, right? And she needed to be braver...more assertive, more sociable. Less...shy.

Leon let out a sigh as Aletihe seemed to insist that it was a failure on their part, as their swing had missed him as well. Recovering from his own lunge and standing up straight once more, Leon said, "if the issue is with positioning or tactics, then the fault belongs to me. It is my job to make sure everyone is where they need to be and doing what they need to. If not, then I'm not doing my job properly. So," with a more stern expression on his face, Leon pivoted away from the thrust. As he did, he brought his blade to parry it, opposite the direction he was moving. Once the light parry was finished, Leon did a small step forward as he retaliated with a quick riposte of his own. "Don't let it weigh on you too heavily."

"You wouldn’t get it... At least they had the second book in the Ribald Tales of the Faith War series available. Maybe I’ll lend it to you if you can remake that ‘fancy outfit’, hm?”
 
Layne let out a little huff as he rolled his eyes slightly, glancing back to Ada as he carried his own bags with him. His hand rubbed at his cheek gently, a little mumble escaping him, "I already told you I would try... You'll have to be around to help out though, I dunno the specifics of the outfit and I'll need to take your measurements for it."
 
He hummed softly as he Ada peered through the doorway, a little sigh escaping him as he listened to the... Awkward conversation between the two of them. He just leaned against a wall, reaching into one of the bags to pull out a little bit of the dried meats they had picked up, nibbling lazily as he watched Ada and Rona some...
 
"Ah, just doing some inventory. This place hasn't gotten much cleaning since we came here. Thought it could do with some fixing up now that we have some downtime!"

 

"Cleaning, huh? That's not a bad idea, this place seemed a bit... Worn down. Maybe we could do some repairs to make sure stuff doesn't fall apart on us either. It could be a lot worse, but could be better too." Layne yawned a bit as he nibbled on the food they bought. His hand brushed along his cheek as he chewed, his eyes widening for a moment as he heard Ada mention the food... And quickly ate the little strip of dried meat he had pulled out. He swallowed before she turned her head to look at him, giving her a wide grin.

 

"Me? Steal food? That's absurd! Now... Come on you two. We gotta go feed the animals, hop to it!" He clapped his hands together, pointing towards the vague direction of the makeshift stables as he did. He turned and walked out of the room, leaving them behind as he made sure that the little stash of food was hidden still.

 

Nailed it.

"Your skin looks cold. You should probably put some clothes on,"

 

Rona looked down at herself at Ada's comment. Was there something wrong with the way she dressed? Sure, it didn't cover as much as Ada's usual garb, but...how could she survive with all of that? Rona couldn't stand how hot it was around these parts. Is this a weakness of herself? Should she attempt to dress more like Ada? To show them that she could handle the heat?

 

Ada's next statement completely went over the girl's head, so lost was she in her thoughts, but she smiled and nodded with what seemed like confidence. She hoped it was the proper response.

 

Layne's comment gave her something to latch onto.

"Me? Steal food? That's absurd! Now... Come on you two. We gotta go feed the animals, hop to it!"

Yes, she'd go feed Cormag. He deserved it after all this.

 

"Let us be off, then, hopefully you have enough for him. He could eat all of us and still be hungry!" She halted. Perhaps that joke was too much for them? "Not that he would, of course!" She added.

 

As they began on their way something crossed Rona's mind and, before she could stop herself, she said it. "You two seem quite close, especially close, closer than many of the others even in this small group. I've always wondered about that..."

 

No, no, Rona, what are you doing? She didn't want to dig into their personal feelings. It might cause them to turn it back on her. And what if they uncovered something? To try and brush her own words she laughed. "Just kidding of course. We're all just comrades here!"

"Don't let it weigh on you too heavily."

 

And just like that, Aleithe ended up conceding defeat after Leon's riposte went through his attempt to block it. He was still unsure about what Leon said, and it didn't really bring any feeling of closure to him yet, but he felt a bit better than before and decided to move to the side, letting Raynor to challenge Leon if he still wanted to.

 

"Perhaps you're right, leader."

 

It's hard to put the blame on someone else however. Even if it was the right thing here, it didn't sit with Aleithe well. He's supposed to be the noble here, the one that shoulders the burden of the people. At the very least, he knew he wanted to feel that he was responsible to this to some degrees.

 

In the end, all that he could do was to sit on the side as he attempted to sort out his mind.

"S-sure. The kitchen...I think it has cookies...also a village about an hour away has food too."

 

"The village sounds like an awful long way to go for just a snack," Cassia shrugged. Best head for the kitchen. And so, the thief led the way to the kitchen, glancing here and there for something suitable to munch on. She wasn't really in the mood to cook, so something she could just eat as-is would have to do. Like bread. It was pretty plain stuff, but Cassia kind of liked that about it. Plus, bread was actually pretty easy to steal from unsuspecting bakers. That little fact came in handy once upon a time.

 

But this wasn't then. This was now. And now, content with finding a basket of small bread loaves, Cassia reached for and took one. She then took a second one, holding it out in Yue's general direction. "Want one?"

"The village sounds like an awful long way to go for just a snack," Cassia shrugged.

 

"Oh...yeah." She wanted a snack? Oh...that made more sense then. She had thought the thief had wanted to eat a meal or something. 

 

The thief led the way to the kitchen, glancing here and there, probably for something to eat. Yue wasn't particularly picky, though she did prefer vegetables to meat. Even with her experience in hunting, she had never really gotten too comfortable with it. The fruits of her labor, or rather meats, went to the tribe. She could still eat it, but...it was really difficult.

 

Cassia seemed to be thinking along the same lines, or at least that she wasn't in the mood for meat. She grabbed a basket of small bread loaves and took one, holding a second one out in Yue's direction. "Want one?"

 

"Sure!" the archer reached out hesitantly before grabbing it, marveling at the fluffy feel and the smell coming from it. Even if it hadn't just been taken out of the oven, the nice-bread scent still lingered. She started to eat it right then and there, smiling happily at the yummy taste.

And now...was she supposed to be speaking here? She probably was, but she had such a hard time talking to people, that...she would pretend she hadn't noticed she should be speaking, filling the silence, and instead took her time eating the bread.
