"2nd Level, Heart District, Sanctuary, 3:00 p.m. "

"J-just me?" said Soren, surprised. His stuttering hitched into a shy smile that he tried to hide by bending lower in concentration to his work, his messy auburn hair curtaining his face, but his hands weren't moving. "Yeah, that would --- I would --- like that, if you're okay with me, Sassy?" He looked up, hopeful. Then his expression changed as though something just hit him."A fight with the Godfather?!" he repeated, flabbergasted. "Er, alright?!" he called after her as she just left.

Lilith who was still working in the shop as usual stared after Sassy as she just left too. "We're discussing this when she gets back." she said concerned to Soren who looked just as worried as her. They hope this fight wasn't to the death.

When Sassy came back they were extremely distraught to learn that this was likely to the death. They know Sassy wasn't the sort to give up her family nor her home town, and didn't press for more questions and just let her rest. Roy actually went out after he came back to confirm this fight and came back with news saying that it's a Team Steel Match, where armor, weapons, and magic were allowed, and it was happening in the Savage Pit at seven in the evening. There was something about an escaped prisoner too, but Roy didn't care about that right now.

When Max arrived, they couldn't help but laugh and crack a smile at his lines, their chests feeling lighter from the news earlier, and Lilith yelled. "You can do more than stare! Come give me a big hug, you silly!" she laughed.

"This is a good haul, nice work." said Roy, opening the bag, then checking out a weird looking giant pin with ruby crusted runes. He put it back in and hauled the bag off and into the shop and their ever growing pile of old arcana trinkets and junk. "As for how things are going here, well . . . let's discuss it while you eat."

They had finished a late lunch before Max arrived, but there was still enough flobberworm steak for him. As he ate, Lilith, Soren, and Roy told him that Sassy was here and that she had a fight with the Godfather tonight. They didn't know why she had challenged such a dangerous opponent possibly to the death, and were waiting for her to wake up to tell them more about it. They were worried.

When Soren asked if Sassy meant just him, she gave a nod and a grin, "mm-hm."

Sassy watched him, still smiling and gently tweaked his cheek, "of course!" She laughed in amusement at his reaction and toussled his hair before she left. When she returned and was questioned on her casual mention of her fight with the Godfather, she just shrugged, waved her hand in the air and let a sputtering of air pass her lips as though she didn't think anything of the whole event before she told them she was going to lay down for a nap and that was exactly what she did until Max's arrival.

"Aaaaaw yeah!" Max basically ran to Lilith and scooped her up in his big muscly, leather covered arms, "a guy could get used to this kind of welcome!"

Max's smile probably couldn't get any bigger, but he didn't hold onto Lilith for too long, releasing her once he had gotten a good firm hug in and gently setting her back on the ground, "light as a feather, gorgeous!"

His gloved fingers gently tossed a few of Lilith's strands of hair in a playful gesture before he looked back at Roy, "a-yuh... Jodie collected most of that stuff, I swear that girl has a nose for treasure!" He looked at the pin that Roy held up and pointed, his arm moving up and down a few times as he tried to recall some information about it, "uh... Malvius said somethin' about that pin being a like royal gift or somethin'. Like to favored members of court."

With a nod he followed Roy and nodded, tugging off his gloves and unzipping his jacket, "sounds like a plan, Stan!"

It was with a grim expression that Max listened to the news they delivered before he shook his head after a while and laughed, "well... you know, Surt's Fall isn't exactly her home town... if I know Sassy, she probably has some sort of plan up her sleeve. Don't worry too much, I'll be there to back her anyway."

It was at this moment that Sassy showed herself. She had taken off her gear and was wearing a pair of torn up black leggings with the same ratty old shirt she had on the previous day. Unfortunately all of her clothes were with Ralph, but it didn't seem to bother her any. She leaned over Max's back, hugging him around the neck before she stole some of the food from his plate.

"If it ain't mah brotha' from anotha' motha'!" She said enthusiastically as she stuffed some of his meal in her mouth, her hair messy and sticking up every which way without the control of her goggles, "didn't expect ta see you here!"

Sassy flopped down on a free seat and looked around at everyone silently for a moment before she laughed loudly, "yeah, don't worry guys, I got it handled," she didn't even bother to deny Max the opportunity to flex in the Savage Pit. She had known him long enough to know that whatever she got into, if he was around, he'd be her backup whether she liked it or not. Max nodded and ate another bite of his food before changing the subject in a manner that was very reminiscent of Sassy herself.

"What's this about an escaped prisoner? Carvers were scurryin' around hanging these up," Max had taken off his gear and set it all on a chair, now wearing a simple, long sleeved gray shirt with a few patches here and there with some blue jeans. He rose from his seat still chewing and went to his belongings, pulling a folded up piece of paper out of one of the pockets and unfolding it to present to all of them, "mean anything to you guys?"

Sassy squinted at the paper and got up from her chair, moving closer before she took it from his hands and cussed softly to herself before she placed her hand on the ground and went silent. She was sending a message to L, asking for a response and when she got none, she cussed some more and rose from the ground, "there are Templars here... I wasn't gonna' worry about it but..."

She shook her head and placed a palm to one of her eyes as she closed them and thought for a moment, "okay okay... so like... I am into somethin' here guys... it's what brought me here in the first place."

Sassy didn't go into big details but she expressed her worry for L and asked Soren if he could go out and search for the people she had met in Sanctuary when she arrived. She described to Soren what and who she would be looking for and told him their names. She gave him L's letter as proof that he did know her. She had thought that L would be safe once they were all hidden but after not hearing back from her, she was worried that something had happened.

- Wild Flower -
“2nd level, heart district, Sanctuary”

A lone dirty-looking rabbit shuffled her way through, trying to remember which way she’s suppose to go to reach the lowest level in Sanctuary. Her stomach growling in hunger and aching for something to eat; ever since she heard that some nice lady grew moss, she wanted to go and grab a small amount. Not a lot, just enough to not feel dizzy. Then she can go find unusual seeds in the market place again.

Wild Flower hid under a broken cart, her nose wiggling as a naga’s tail slithered in front of her among the pairs of legs. Her ears perked up in alarm, making sure the naga wasn’t looking for her before coming out and hopping away. Barely dodging the busy thieves in Sanctuary. Call her a coward, but she didn’t want to catch anybody’s eye at the moment. The last time she was out in the open, a troll wanted to take her fur to make himself a pelt. She shuddered at the thought of what the other residents might want her for-

“Gotcha!” A hand suddenly snatched her up by her tail, pulling her off the ground; she dropped her items in her shock and pain. Her ears folded back as she stared at a Lycon’s grinning face. Too many gold teeth! Too many! All of them were sharp too-!

”Got me some rabbit stew~”

”I’m not your food, you dog toy!” Wild struggled and wiggles against the clawed hand, kicking his arm. Becoming frustrated that her kicks were so weak for not eating much while her visit here. Her tail and spine are starting to ache-! The Lykon looked too happy as he stared at her and she barely noticed that he was wearing a bloody apron loosely tied around his hips and neck.

“Put me down! Put me down!”

”Don’t worry, lass. I’ll put you down alright~“ Her red eyes widened at the sight of a butcher’s blade, shiny and ready within the Lykon’ s hand. She struggled even harder, yelling for help, and no one bothered to take a glance at them. “Right on meh table, ready to be chop-chopped!”

“HELP!” She yelled as the wolf-humanoid started to walk back in his shop called ‘Butch ‘n Buck’. “I’m not food! I can talk! —- Someone! Anyone!! HELP!!”

- Roger’s Yass! -
"Top of Heart District, Sanctuary, 5:30 p.m.”

Soren agreed to search. Before he left, he hesitated for a moment, before squeezing Sassy's shoulder and then saying, "Win, okay?", and was out the garage door.

After the remaining C.U.R.E. learned that Sassy was fighting for Ralph and the hungry, Roy volunteered for the fight; Lilith pursed her lips at the brashness of this all, yet what's done is done and she knew the three won't change their minds. So instead of just worrying that they were going to fight a warlord, a warlord Sassy had insulted apparently after Roy told them how angry the Carvers were that she laughed at The Godfather, she went and pulled out a box of files of what her C.U.R.E. branch knew about him from his past battles and shared it with the three.

At about half past four, a pair of carvers appeared in the residential area where Razzle's Dazzle was, and lounged some distance away where they had a good view of the garage shop, one of them pointing at Max's bike and talking to the other.

Two hours had passed since Soren left, and he didn't return with news yet. When Sassy and Max left first, the two would find themselves being followed by another pair of Carvers each who kept their distance, as her search for Isa's cart led her to Roger's Yass!, a caravan maker's shop where the owner, a flamboyant buff satyr named Roger, said that the old man she was looking for went in the yellow house caravan with a green roof and a tower together with his cart.

It looked and sounded like no one was inside, though the satyr told her that the old man hadn't come out since before lunch time. He watched her closely, probably waiting to see if the people inside will recognize her. Sassy could tell that he was probably thinking she was either someone the people inside knew or a stranger who was possibly a thief.

Across the street in front of a meat shop called Butch ‘n Buck’, a lycon was bringing a struggling rabbit inside its shop. This wolf must be a new hire, because one of the iron clad rules in Sanctuary was no slave trading, and that included the capture of those who aren't wanted by the Carvers. Those following Sassy didn't help, though, as they were focused on the task of watching her. Normally there would be a Carver patrolling the area, but it seemed as though they were all too busy searching for the lost prisoner who may be disguised as a Carver, whose wanted poster they were putting up for a reward of a lot of loot if captured alive.

Razzle's Dazzle​

Sassy was staring at the flyer she had snatched from Max when Soren squeezed her shoulder and she couldn't help but smile and place her other hand against her cheek. Max snorted slightly and lightly nudged Sassy's arm, she responded by swatting at him and laughing before shaking her head and clearing her throat.

It wasn't like she was just being selfish and after she explained to them why she had challenged the Godfather and what had lead to it, she laughed a little and shrugged her shoulders, following that explanation up with the Godfather's proposed earnings if he won the match and naming that as the reason she was laughing before stating that the Carvers were just dimwits and didn't know what was going on.

Sassy was rather eager when Lilith pulled out her files and gratefully hugged her before digging into the information along side Roy and Max after which she sat back and put her arms behind her head, stating that it looked like she needed to upgrade some before begging Max, "Broooooooo!!! Just this once, be mah Sugar Daddy and buy me an upgrade, puh-leeeeeeeze?!"

"Ugh Sassy... don't put it like that, it makes it weird."

"Hahahahaah okay, can I borrow some loots then?"

"Yeah yeah, whatever."

Gratefully, Sassy messed up his somewhat slicked hair before intentionally spiking it up with her fingers and scurrying off to prepare. Her pants and coat were put back on but she declined to wear her leather shrug that hid her right arm because she felt it slightly limited her mobility. Her lacy black tutu was also nowhere to be found just because she didn't want it ruined and she doubted that the Godfather was going to go easy on her so he probably wouldn't try to keep from messing up her clothes. She took the whole of her messy hair and waded it up in a semi-bun ponytail mass and didn't put her goggles back on over it. Her weapons weren't actually something she had to worry about holstering so the only thing she carried on her person was her knife since she wasn't going to be able to use any potions or anything it seemed kind of silly to have her pouches on her belt, especially since Soren had just finished fixing her straps on nibblet's bag. Once she was all set she went out to sit in the common room to wait for any word from Soren.

Max's preparations really just consisted of changing his shirt, removing the patched up and form fitting shirt he was wearing in exchange for a sleeveless shirt because he didn't want to overheat in combat and he'd already be wearing his leather jacket with his armor equipped over it. After he was dressed, he went outside to get his shotgun axe to put in the holster strapped to his back, only to spot a couple of Carvers checking out his motorcycle. It concerned him slightly so when he went back inside, he asked Lilith to bring his bike in the garage or to just keep an eye on it and let her know why. He was more of a realist than Sassy and if something happened to him he'd rather the bike stay with C.U.R.E.

After two hours had passed, Sassy got pretty impatient sitting around waiting for Soren to return. With one last attempt at telling Roy it was fine if he stayed put, she and Max left, telling him they'd see him at the Pit. Sassy made no effort to hide the fact that she had seen the Carvers following them, figuring that it was probably to make sure that they actually went to the pit and even made a point of involving them in whatever random topic she and Max were conversing over, unless it was something about what they were actually doing, which was seeking out L and the others.

When the search led them to Roger's Yass! and after she was able to determine that Isa was likely still inside despite the silence coming from the structure, Sassy stepped up to the door to knock. It was at this time that the cries of the Rabbit reached her ears and she paused a moment before looking around in exasperation as no one in the vicinity seemed to be taking any action. Max's attention was also on the rabbit, his arms crossed and his brow furrowed.

"WELL?!" Sassy shouted at the Carvers that had been following them, her hands positioned in a way as if saying, 'aren't you gonna' do something?!' Seeing that they apparently weren't, she groaned in annoyance and looked at Max who was already heading that way. Sassy yelled in generally at no one in particular, "well at least someone is doing something!"

While Max purposefully headed over to the shop to see what the ruckus was about and possibly put an end to it considering he didn't like the look of the Lycon, Sassy went about knocking on the door. If and when there was no answer, she then went back over to Roger, "look guy, my name is Sassafrass Jenkins and I'm not a robber," she stated plainly before pointing at the Carvers that had been assigned to watch her, "they're following me so if I do something bad you already have witnesses. I just gotta' get in here to make sure my people are alright."

Her disappearing around the caravan and not coming back out was obviously suspicious so she was trying to keep from getting Roger in a hissy by explaining to him the situation. Whether or not he believed her was to be seen but for now she left him and went around the caravan to find another way inside if the front door wasn't unlocked. When she found one she slipped in through the window and at this time Max had already entered Butch n' Buck.

"Roger's Yass!, Top of Heart District , Sanctuary "

There was no one on the first floor where the living room was. The front door had been locked and there is no sign of the key. Going up the stairs, it revealed a kitchen where the dregs of what smelled like fish soup lay in a crockpot over the warm dead coals of a recent fire. There were three used cat bandit designed wooden bowls that smelled of the fish on the table. Aft of the kitchen, there was a small hallway that had four doors on either side and another set of spiraling stairs at the end that seemed to lead to the attic. Of the doors, two were locked.

What does Sassy wish to do?

4B6AD427-D353-4EC4-BBAD-5D566697A622.jpeg As Sassy made her search, Roger tapped his hoof on the ground, keeping his eyes on the caravan and the creeping carvers. He breathed in his long thin pipe and puffed out purple plumes, quietly telling his confused and weary workers orders to keep the shop running while this situation was happening. Sometimes pulling up his extra fluffy boa over his shoulders as he waited outside of Isa’s caravan.

While he wouldn’t throw a hissy fit, Roger refuses to budge from his spot until everything is resolved. After all, he loved making this specific caravan, being the rare few to be so colorful.

“Butch n’ Buck”

By the time Max went inside the butcher’s shop, he’d see the bipedal wolf growling at the struggling rabbit to stop moving so much. Wild Flower ignored him, attempted to kick his snout and missed. Realizing a shadow coming from the entrance, the pair looked over to the tall blonde. The new butcher giving his large grin as if to welcome him and the rabbit silently pleading with wide bunny eyes.

”’ello, ‘ello! What can I do yur fur?”

Roger's Yass!​

After managing to break into the caravan through a window, she did her best to keep silent. She wasn't sure if Evelendy had discovered L's whereabouts, nor whether or not she was still on the premises so she did her best to keep from being discovered. After searching around in the more open of the rooms, she came to the hall with the four doors and tried each of them, when she discovered that two of the doors were unlocked, she checked those rooms first, to no avail. It was after these first two rooms that she went back to the main room and took up a lock-pick kit she had spotted during her initial search and took it back to the locked doors.

Perhaps it was her agitation over the situation or the fact that she had a less than agreeable time frame in which to complete the task she currently found before her, but the whole of the situation was stressing her and everything seemed to be taking much longer than it should. Sassy brought her arm up against her perspiring forehead as she worked on the first of the two locked doors, huffing slightly since leather wasn't the most absorbent of materials. When she finally got the door open and likewise, the other locked door, she search both rooms thoroughly and upon discovering no one, she looked at the two chests in the room thoughtfully before trying the locks.

When she failed at opening either of the chests she sighed before grumbling as she realized the time and rose to her feet, moving to the front door rather than sneaking back out the way she had come. she walked right up to Roger without hesitation, "dude. Did you see anyone else leave this place?"

Max's gaze shifted from the Lycon to the rabbit in his grasp as he stepped through the door and his face was devoid of expression which was actually pretty unusual for the buff blonde since he had a very expressive face. He folded his arms across the leather that covered his chest but raised a hand to point at the rabbit in question as he spoke, "well... that depends. What are you plannin' on doin' with that bun-bun?"

”Chop her up.” He answered with that same grin. The rabbit let out an ‘eep!’ and wiggles some more until the Lykon shook her.

Isa woke up in darkness. It was cramped. He was in a box. A blindfold and gag was tightly wound around his face, his feet tied, his hands manacled behind him. And he was very, very unnaturally tired. A familiar feeling. It was likely because of the cuffs, they were the sealing sort, the kind mage hunters used to shackle wizards and witches. It drained their manna, preventing them from casting spells.

But his hearing was fine. Outside it sounded like he was still in Roger's Yaas! But the din of the shop and streets had lessened, and the air was colder. He could hear the cackling of burning braziers outside.

There were careful footsteps moving away from Isa, the opening and closing of a door, then Sassy's voice some distance away said: "Dude. Did you see anyone else leave this place?"

“Sorry, young lass. The only one I saw leave was a blonde woman with a hood around twelve this afternoon.” said Roger's voice. "The old man and the rest of them aren't there?" He added, concerned. There was the sound of crunching gravel as hooves approached.

Then there was another voice. "Heeey! Sassafras Jenkins! Hey, there I'm Moss! I saw you outside the tavern earlier. We're comrades in arms!"

* * * *​

Outside, a white haired dark skinned man? Not sure, he had a fleshy horn on his forehead, came jogging up to Sassy, grinning all friendly. He was very clean for someone in Sanctuary, and wore a horrible brown tunic under a winter coat, both of which despite looking worn were immaculately clean. Moss secretly flashed her a letter with a familiar magical symbol, same as the one on her letter from L, before quickly stuffing the letter back in his bag.

Roger's Yass!​

Sassy frowned as Roger's information was revealed. She had thought there was something messed up about that lady when she wouldn't hand over her weapons in order to get into the Gentleman's back room but hadn't thought much of it. She shook her head, in response to his question as she considered that maybe it was just coincidence, either way she didn't exactly have time to really stew over it. With a sigh she put her hands on her hips as she looked down at the ground before she looked back up at him and prepared to speak but her words were interrupted as a stranger showed up.

She crossed her arms over her chest as he spoke and sighed again but this time with relief, "that is just... totally awesome. I could use your help because I'm a lil pressed for time."

She explained the situation to him, resting a hand on his shoulder intently as her gray eyes focused on him, "do ya' think you can try and get the chests open and see if they are in them? Roger here said he hasn't seen any of 'em except for this one lady that seemed shady to me."

"Uh-huh..." the gloved hand that Max had used to point at the rabbit with moved up to cup his face for a moment, his fingers and thumb lightly stroking his squared chin for a moment before both of his hands went to his hips, "ya know, I'm no psychic but I don't think she agrees with your plan much."

This wasn't his first trip to Sanctuary and he knew the rules and was pretty sure that murdering a sentient creature that could communicate through spoken language was probably frowned upon even if Sanctuary's rules weren't the most strict, He walked closer to the counter and placed one of his hands on it while the other remained on his hip, "there's also a couple a Carvers followin' my friend an' me... so you might wanna' rethink that."

Moss immediately bolted into the caravan, yelling, "ISA, L, VIDYA?!" He glacned at the shelf where the toolbox was, saw it wasn't there, then wall ran past a bewildered Roger who was looking around inside, and then leaped up the stairs in one bound.

Isa is going to hear and feel him shaking the box he's in. "HEY, IS ANYONE IN HERE?" There was a clicking and scratching of metal noise right in front of Isa.

“Inside his caravan and trapped in a chest”

While Isa struggled with his binds, frustration creeping up in his face, he huffed. Noticing how tired he was and the familiar magic sapping feeling he got, the redhead took a deep breathe from his nose —— only to be shaken. His face banged against the chest’s wall.

Ohhhh, he can feel his anger brewing.

Letting out muffled yells, Isa kicked and hit the chest walls with his elbow and cuffed hands.

“Here, let me help.” Isa heard Roger’s voice and counted to 50 in his head.

- Wild Flower -
“Outside of the butcher’s shop”

The rabbit agreed with what Max was saying, shaking her head up and down rapidly that she’s practically blurring.

”I-I see . . . dun’ be telling Carvers then.” Understanding that he might have made a grave mistake, the tensed butcher hesitantly put the captured rabbit down. Safe on the ground. Wild Flower quickly hopped out of the shop and snatched her bag before anyone tried to grab it —- thank goodness, no one did! —- and hopped back. Hiding behind Max’s legs to peek out with a single red eye.

”T-thank you . . .” She said to the young human male, cranking her neck to look up. “I-if there’s anything I can repay you-“

With a click, the chest was unlocked. Moss gave Roger's cheek a kiss, the satyr holding one piece of a folded metal wire in place in the lock when Moss tried again with Isa's quill to get the lock open. And there was an angry struggling Isa. Moss immediately removed his gag, blindfold, and cut the rope binding his feet. He was relieved he was unhurt.

"What happened?" He moved around to try and unlock the cuffs around his wrist with Roger's help. Easy enough with the satyr. The cuffs dropped to the floor.

The Vault Key and Isa's translator notes were gone.

"Woah!" Was Sassy's response as Moss bolted away and she couldn't help but chuckle at his enthusiasm to help the others. Certain that the situation was in good hands, she jogged across the way to Butch n' Buck in time to see the little Rabbit come running out to get her belongings before she went back in side. Well it looked like Max helped her out in the end and Sassy walked into the shop and leaned in the door way with her arms crossed.

"Glad we could come to an understanding," Max grinned and patted the counter before looking down at the little rabbit, "No problem, Bun-Bun."

Sassy moved out of the doorway as Max moved towards it before they were all outside and she looked down at the little rabbit, "it probably isn't safe for you to be wanderin' around here on your own."

She looked at Max who took over for her, "you can come with us if you want... or we have some friends here that will keep you safe and give you shelter and some food."

Sassy nodded and smiled, "we gotta' get goin' now though."

Time just seemed to be slipping from them. So much for the upgrades Sassy had asked Max to get for her. Hopefully what she had would be enough to win the fight against the Godfather.

“Freeeeeee!”

“Oh!” Roger daintily placed his hand over his mouth when Moss kissed his reddening cheek, chuckling with his ears folding back shyly. “What a welcome~”

As soon Moss took off the gag and blindfold, Isa growled. Sickly yellow veins invaded the indigo color of his eyes with goat-like pupils staring back at the merman. His nose turned red, stinging from the shake. Roger gasped before helping Moss with the pick-locking. “Mage hunters, that’s what!”

”We ate Therias’ soup. I fell asleep and woke up in a chest!“ Isa huffed, trying to calm down, and shutting his eyes. His mind raced. “I bet it’s that Therias. She might be part of the group that was after L. Vidya might be in the other chest.”

As soon Isa was free from the cuff, he threw them across the room hard. Hearing the cuffs bang against the wall, the red head got out of the chest and took another deep and long breathe. “Where’s Sassy? What time is it?”

- Wild Flower -

The rabbit froze when a lady came up to them. Her eyes ping-ponged back and forth before tilting her head. They have friends here? Maybe she should . . . Not be in their way. But she doesn’t know when she will see the nice pair again. It’s not like she can stay here forever. . .

but foooooood! Aaaarrrrgh!

”I shall come with you.” Wild insisted, hopping besides them. “My name is Wild Flower, but you can just call me Wild or Flower. I’m not picky.”

"Six-thirty I think? And Sassy is outside." said Moss moving to the next chest and pushing it. "This one is empty." He went to the girl's room. "The two here aren't!"

"Hold on my darlings, I'll get my men and tools to help." said Roger, and went down hollering for Tony and Lunani.

“ . . . “

”Okay.” Isa took another deep breathe and flames bursts. His figure changed into a red-headed curvaceous woman with ashy blue eyes. Her dark clothing seemingly fitted her. She took a quick look around the room and growled again. Then she made her way to the pink room; Moss would know it’s Isa. He usually takes this form when they were traveling together while haggling shopkeepers.

”I’m going to help Sassy keep her head on her neck —- need help with that?” Isa asked, trying her hand at unlocking the chest, but soon enough, she lost her temper mid-picking the chest. He huffed.

“No good . . . I’m going.” Isa told Moss before leaning in close and whispered in his ear. “The vault key is gone, along with my notes.“

Then she ran out of the caravan and towards the coliseum where he’s sure the fight will be held.

——

By the time Isa spotted Sassy with a blonde guy and a familiar rabbit walking to somewhere, she waved a hand and yelled. “Sassy!“

The redheaded woman ran over and breathed in relief. “It’s me, Isa. Moss got me out.”

"Wait, go where, Isa?" said Moss following him for a bit. "What do you mean help Sassy keep her head, you mean join her in that fight tonight?"

Isa took a peek over her shoulder and nodded, slowing down a bit to talk to Moss. “Yea~ I overheard her conversation with The Godfather. If she loses and she doesn’t have a home, she’ll lose her head basically.”

Eternally Awkward
Sassafras Jenkins
and
Maximillian Bonaparte
- Sanctuary, Heart District -
Butch n' Buck​

Max and Sassy exchanged glances when Wild Flower stated that she would go with them but didn't say anything to the contrary, they did after all say she could go with them and they weren't exactly expecting her to fight with them, they had suggested it believing her to be relatively safe while she was with them and during the match. As they started heading off towards their intended destination, Max made the introductions, "nice ta meetcha' Bun-Bun. I'm Maximillian Bonaparte and this is Sasssafrass Jenkins."

He gestured to each of them as he said their names and it seemed as though he had already made a decision about what he would call Wild Flower.

Sassy gave a big grin to Wild Flower before glancing back over her shoulder as Isa ran up, followed by Moss. Max gave a sharp whistle as he eyed Isa, "man Sassy, if you told me this is what we were looking for, I would have sent you to help Bun-Bun!" He seemed to catch himself and looked down at Wild Flower a little sheepishly, "sorry, no offense!"

"Don't mind him, he's a doofus but he's got a good heart," Sassy shook her head and rolled her eyes before she looked back to Isa as he conversed with Moss, she eventually shook her head and sighed, "okay so it's like this... I have to win this fight because the Godfather took Ralph and I don't want somethin' bad ta happen to him."

Her steps didn't stop as she continued, "that's why I can't call off the fight and I can't delay the fight because if I don't fight and win, I have ta leave Sanctuary tonight."

She was really caught between a rock and a hard place. Of course it was her own fault these were her circumstances. Max shook his head, not even bothering to question what she had done to get herself into this situation.

The rabbit deadpanned at Max’s nickname for her, but didn’t say anything. He did save her, so she’ll let it go. Just this once. It’s not like he meant the nickname to be a harmful joke after all. Though she gave him another deadpan after he whistle at the red headed woman that’s coming towards them; followed by a . . . A merman? What is he doing here and out of the waters?

Isa frowned at Moss, opening her painted red lips in her retort when Sassy’s voice answered for her. Then she smiled rather sweetly; Moss can tell that she’s acting since she’s not the type to let go her anger easily. “This is the fastest way to reach The Godfather. Maybe I can convince him about changing the date of the fight or even securing the entrance and exits with more carvers.”

”It’s better than doing nothing. Plus . . . He might even change his mind about Sassy, since she did warn him about the mage hunters being here and he didn’t take heed.”

Though the chances of any of that happening can be very low, especially when the Godfather looked too eager for this fight. Still Isa wanted to try his hand at speaking with him, even if they are about to start the fight.

The rabbit stayed quiet, looking confused and wary of having mage hunters here.

"Okay." said Moss. "I don't know who Ralph is, but I'll wait until L and Vidya are out and we'll search for Therias. Now tell me everything that happened before you passed out."

This meme is already nothing but a memory
Orgeat Monostoni D'Aramachi de St. Louisiana XVII
??

"It doesn't matter. Days, weeks, months..."
"Would you be happy? With me?"
"My Love, the fleeting snowdrop is its splendid in the briefest moment it falls."


Orgeat awoke, her eyes opening with an urgency as if waking up from an inappropriate dream. White linen greeted her as she felt the warm evening glow of fire and the cool comfort of the blanket. As she sat up, her memories came rushing back of what transpired earlier: joy, delight, curiosity, amusement, regret. All these emotions from a few hours of dancing with a beautiful merman who charmed her with his voice, too effectively.

How she felt alive!

The sky looks pissed
The wind talks back
My bones are shifting in my skin
And you my love are gone

Yet the sensations of recalling a dream from time that was so long ago yet felt fresh in her mind mixed with the sensations of the new, forming an amalgam of bittersweet feelings. Orgeat felt her hand on finger, feeling for that ring that once adorned it. She shook her head, not searching for the physical touch, but the memories it brought back to her. Sweet days, innocent days, simple days where the snow and the glacier waters observed her one and tragic love. A love that made her heart twinge yet she had never wanted it to go any different. Or rather, the end satisfied them both.

She opened once more, the moments of silence that she savored gone into staleness into her dry lips. Looking around, she realized this was a room that was quite well furnished. Not rich, but not barren either. Was this Romanos's room? She stood and noticed a piece of paper. The contents clearly addressing her work name:

"Miss Valliant, if you wake up and I am not around, please write the address of your estate and a landmark. I am looking for someone and it has to do with helping my friends. That scholar could be the person, I am looking for. -Moss"

"Men."
She muttered as she rolled her eyes. Their sweet words and wonderful good looks always came with a price. As if the ring wasn't enough, he wanted information regarding a man. If she wanted, she could have been offended at this brazen and insulting offer. Tear this paper, burn this in flames, and let him search for it somewhere else.

My room feels wrong
The bed won't fit
I cannot seem to operate


But of course she wouldn't. He made her feel alive. His bashful expression, his shyness. How adorable he was! Quite scrumptious, and it tempted her to see what he looked like blushing from head to toe. His hair glossy and his lips shiny, begging to be kissed lest he die of embarrassment. The imagined sight would be quite exciting!

Ahh~~ Someday perhaps.

But that someday will not come unless they met again. Though she didn't think he would see her tomorrow, his urgency did prove to her that he was driven to finishing a centuries old quest. If he can keep the search that long, then he will definitely see her. Besides, she sighed as she felt the raggedness of her hat with her fingers, the poverty of her family and estate becoming apparent to her mind once more. She could not spend her time just acting like a noble. She needed to be a noble! That included earning money.

Money, money, money.


In their isolation, it felt like they had so much of it. The moment the scholar told her the coins and bills no longer had value in the new world, her fears that their standing was now in danger of falling to disrepute came true. Sighing, she saw the quill next to the note and wrote and drew a number of images and text: Her address from the past; coordinates; landmarks of a large trees in the center of the road with stones around it; and the base of the mountains where the estate was located with images of snow houses and fruit trees growing on the slopes.

Finished. She took her items and figured she could tease him one last time. Going through her things, she took out her perfume and a tube of bright red lipstick. Applying it to her mouth, she placed a kiss mark on the note and perfumed it with her favored scent.

A parting gift, she thought to herself. Feeling the sense of urgency once more, she turned to the door ands made her way out.

"Where are you going Miss?" A familiar voice called out as she got out of the front door.

And you my love are gone

The Dockmaster. So that's where she was. As she turned around to give her thanks, she noticed he was not alone. A woman and two small children were with him. Their manner relaxed as if they just had a lovely family moment interrupted by her presence. My, my, not even his house. Romanos was a naughty, naughty boy who knows nothing of courtesy.

If a woman faints, you bring her to your home, not someone elses. Still, she could not fault him. He may not even have a house. Poor dear.

"I apologize for interrupting your time." She began as she curtsied to the Dockmaster and his wife. Her poise regal and graceful, like a woman in fairytales where royalties were the main characters. "And thank you for letting me slumber in your lovely home. However, I need to return to some business that I have put off. By your leave, forgive me for leaving, and may we meet again for me to repay your for your hospitality". Making a few farewells, she exited the home, finding herself once more in the familiar area of Sanctuary.

So glide away on soapy heels
And promise not to promise anymore
And if you come around again
Then I will take,
Then I will take the chain from off the door

The cold night wind welcomed her, and she made her way to the tavern. Her behavior shifted slightly as she walked with caution and her eyes alert. She was not in her estate, and the dangers everywhere multiplied. She could not afford to be careless. But as she walked, her mind drifted slightly to her thoughts and the sensations of the refreshing cool breeze.

I'll never say that I'll never love
But I don't say a lot of things
And you my love are gone


She soon reached the tavern, the bouncers noticing her but saying nothing as they let her in. She ignored the music, the dancing, and the merrymaking, her own fill sated. She saw the job quest and looked at it for the first time, her eyes parsing through the amounts and the difficulty of the requests. The pay wasn't great for the cheaper ones. But it was better than nothing. Plus, she had confidence she could handle them.

"Back to work". She thought to herself as she made her decision.

So glide away on soapy heels
And promise not to promise anymore
And if you come around again
Then I will take, the chain from off the door
