On The Streets of Desla...
The streets were littered with all kinds of townsfolk, travelers, merchants, and other beings. Thayne looked around anxiously as if trying to spot some coincidental situation that would lead them to their first "hero". Giving it some thought, Thayne had only just realized he didn't know where they were even walking.
"Ando...where are we headed anyways?" Thayne asked, still looking about the vast crowd. Ando simply kept walking, threading himself through the nooks of the crowd as if he were a guided needle of a master seamstress. Thayne not having as much grace found himself bumping shoulders with quite a few passer-by, increasing his impatience.
"You know you Jintari are quite annoying at times. Certain things you just can't answer straight out, you just do what you feel don't you? Ah well i suppose that's why you're so useful on the battle field, you feel instead of think, am I right Ando?" Just then Ando stopped, Thayne looked over as to what could have caused Ando to halt so quickly, he then saw the sign of a popular dock inn, the "Sea Wharf Inn" By the time Thayne had stopped looking at the sign, Ando was already halfway to the entrance, casually removing his hood. Thayne quickly caught up and peered into the establishment.
"Why here all of sudden? Don't tell me you're in need of a drink at a time like th..." Ando held up his hand in a subtle gesture to silence Thayne for a moment.
"The smell of blood is heavy in here...we may just find ourselves a good warrior" Ando glanced around, seeing a couple drunks pick up a friend who had seemed to have just received a nasty beating and it didn't look like one of the others wasn't doing much better. A fight had definitely just occurred, that much was clear to Ando.
"Grab that table over there, I'll get us some food" Ando pointed towards the back corner table that was right next to the stairs. Thayne quickly complied and made his way over to take his seat. Ando made his way to the bar, positioning himself just behind two large men that were conversing over the ale.
"Hmm...not a lot of room..." Ando spoke softly to himself as he scratched his chin. He moved a loose strand of his black hair out of his face then reached his arm between the two large men and signaled the barkeep. His hand was quickly pushed away by the larger of the two men.
"Hey boy, don't ye know it be rude to reach o'er a man while he feasts?"
Ando smirked and took half a step back.
"That's what I thought ye worthle..." A quick flash of steel and the mans' stool fell apart, causing him to drop to the floor with a loud thud. Ando reached back over the bar and waved down the barkeep.
"Two bowls of soup for that table back there, please" Just as Ando finished his order the large man stood up and gathered his composure before turning to face Ando.
"You miserable swine! I'll have your...." He stopped mid-sentence as he actually looked at Ando, "...Oye...I knows who y..." Ando interrupted the man quickly by raising the pommel of his sword up to the mans' lips. "I mean...that ol' stool must'a gave way finally." the man corrected himself nervously.
With that Ando turned then made his way towards Thayne, awaiting their food to be brought to them. Thayne smirked as his old friend sat calmly, placing his sword next to him.
"Trying to stir things up already? We haven't even eaten yet" Ando just smirked and crossed his arms as he leaned back into his seat, waiting patiently...
