PostSubject: Well this is interesting   Sun Feb 17, 2013 1:18 am

"So this mercenary takes the cake of being an idiot" "I mean we really did not have to try to pick a fight with a freaking tree" "something tells me he is a drunk but as long as my skin is safe I could care less" Well we have been walking to look for a merchant who'd meet me about a book that consisted of astronomy. Sparked my interest like crazy. "Hey Mark what do you think about this merchant and his book lead?" "Well you payed me to continually save your ass, not think so shut up and leave me alo....." "Oh god! Mark, are you okay? Ah damn, looks like that lead may have been a trap." "Damn it why me, an arrow to the back is just a cowardly move" as mark tried to get himself back up this group of bandits came out, in my head i knew how screwed we both were but what woudl they want with a scientist? "Hey mark you know something, if we get out of this i'll pay ya double" just to lighten the mood a bit. I managed to count about 6 bandits as they approached. They got to both of us and the big fat one proceeded to stab mark through his skull. "Hey that was a little uncalled for man!" "Dear god i should have never said anything" "You there smart egghead, our boss took an interest in you and sent us to find you" "you are on tough little smartass to find you know" They all proceeded to tie me up, and I really don't want to go......

Ceadda was on his way back to Izanami's hole in the ground, and he was traveling back the way he came.
He was still thinking about her, constantly and found it difficult to get her out of his mind.

He was brought out of his daze by the sound of yelling in the distance. He looked through his binoculars and could see a man get stabbed in the head by a cutthroat, and them threatening the other man.
He pulled out his assault rifle and closed the distance quickly, feeling lucky none of them had spotted them. He had counted six. Nothing he couldn't handle. He looked through the sight, took aim, and fired two shots, killing two of them. He was glad the old man had given him this rifle. It was far more accurate than his old one.

He sprinted towards the ruffians, firing single shots so as to not accidentally injure the man they were harassing. He took down all but one, who started running. These men obviously weren't trained soldiers. He shot the last man in the leg, taking him down, planning on interrogating him later.

He walked over to their victims, noting one was dead, and the other was a bit bruised and in shock, but alive.

"Are you okay, Ceadda asked the man?"

"Well okay is a long stretch but you know better than dead like my Mercenary, which reminds me, I get a refund" I proceed to mug his dead body for my money back.

"Ah, yes formalities, My name is Sciscitator Saltus I am a scientist but the lead to my newest atronomical study turned out to be this group of bandits out for my head" I walk around picking my things up. "GREAT! my stethoscope is broken....."

I turn to him "You haven't spoken a word, not trying to be rude, but can you even understand me? How about a handshake Mr.....?" I reach out my hand to see if I get a reaction.

Ceadda took the man's hand and shook it. He was an interesting looking man. Distracted by his studies, it seemed. He almost felt envious at his pursuit of knowledge rather than violence. But Ceadda chose his life, and lived it well.

"My name is Ceadda Allast. I go by Allastom to most. I am renowned in the mercenary business as one of the best. Although I honestly have an interest in most sciences and music, so perhaps we could be friends. You should get yourself checked though, I was going to return to a close friend, and she could help you," Ceadda said. "I'm sure she would be fine with your company, if you'd like to come, Mr. Saltus."

As we finished shaking hands i replied "Well i would love to but seeing as I live in the forest, night isn't exactly my friend." I proceeded to gather my things and realized that this man really deserves something for his trouble.

"Hey, I'd like you to have one of these portable lighting devices I finished developing in my lab" I then handed him a flashlight. "The blueprint or the paper that tells me how to make it, calls it a flashlight. It provides light for you to see at night, i'm sure a merc like you can put it to good use" I stood there lost in thought.

"On second thought I could use some interaction with others that aren't looking to take me off and do god knows what to me, I shall accept your offer to go with you good sir" I reached in my pocket for the blood soaked money. "I can even pay you for escorting me to your friend" As i smiled nervously at him hoping my dry humor doesn't ruin things.

Ceadda eyed the money and flashlight. He could really use it considering he didn't get payed in money by the old man. But he couldn't accept money for doing what he felt was right. And the man obviously wasn't a social pariah, as he had no idea there were flashlights available in the market. He laughed to himself. The man was obviously introverted, but he seemed to enjoy some social contact.

"I can't accept your money, sir. I did nothing other than what I felt was right. Keep the flashlight, and if we leave now, we should be able to reach my friend's place before nightfall. Which will be safest for both of us."

Ceadda started walking and the man followed him, and some hours later they arrived at their destination.
