On the Road... (Archive Repost)

Ciprian stood by, patiently watching over the camp. Agel, who had been watching the entire affair, plodded over to his master from the side of the road where the horses had wandered too after seeing the violence. The bay warhorse nuzzled Ciprian's side, as if he he were checking the now healed wound. The blood stain was still on his shirt to be smelt. The knight reached up absently to scratch the stallion's mane.

Now what do we do with him? Ciprian thought, watching Xian. He seems like an honest man, if not dense. His actions have put us all ill at ease, but he seems to have not known better. Can we trust him? I doubt he would betray us, but what if he does something foolish? Ciprian decided he would speak to Xian after he finished burying the sniper.

Xian burried the sniper with ease. There was little work involved other than moving the body into the grave and piling the dirt on him. He packed it down shortly after. The entire process just made Xian hungrier and sweatier. After the work was done, Xian sat near the grave and hung his head. He was tired, weakened by hunger, and disapproved of by the rest.

Once Xian had finished and sat back, Ciprian left his horse and crossed the road to meet the mercenary. The knight crouched down in front of Xian.

"So, what's your name?" Ciprian asked.

"Xian." he retorted. "I have no last name, so don't bother askin'. I'm just Xian. Used to be a farmer, worked the farm for a long time, after that joined the war, got thrown off the ship in a storm, washed back up in Valis, became a mercenary, which brings us to here." He sighed. "'nuff information for your liking?"

Ciprian chuckled. At least he didn't have to probe any further. "Well, Xian, since you helped, or at least tried, I'll let you go back to Roid, or you can travel with us. Our journey ahead is treacherous and we will undoubtedly be hunted, but we could use another sword."

Carianna turned and walked away from the others at the mention of using another sword. I should have known the world would be like this, she thought to herself. Why am I so surprised? She gathered her horse and, after three attempts, managed to get atop it. Still awkward on the steed, just simply waited for the others to move out. There was a lot to think and pray about now...

"It doesn't seem like your priestess agrees with taking me along." Xian stated. "I'll do what I can though. While my sword may not be in the greatest of conditions, I'll do my best not to dissa...dissip...not to make myself a burden."

As Carianna prepared to leave as well, Cian gave Kylia a slight nod then stepped over to the priestess. The boy's grey eyes narrowed in deep concern and he spoke softly stepping over to her. "Cari? I...I want you to know how much I appreciate all you're going through for me. I've been living...I had been living a hard way most a of my life, a slave and a thief...but I've never seen anything like what just happened."

He didn't know how to put his thoughts into words but tried his best, "I..don't know much about gods...or goddesses. But I think Rada gained one heck of a priestess when you came into your calling. That man would've dragged me back to Emir or worse..and you prayed for him for his welfare. I..don't understand fully.... But I think you're a wonderful person for doing so... I..did that sound silly? I'm...I'm talking too much time to get going."

The boy turned to leave hoping he'd at least given her some encouragement.

"Thank you," she said after a moment. It was kind of him to say that, despite what the other priests of Rada thought of her battle-ready philosophy. "I only wonder if Rada agrees..." Carianna sighed, rubbing her bracers. They still felt warm from the fight. Did Rada agree with her defensive disarming actions? Were they too close to fighting? Maybe...

"Well, we'll work it out with her. I'm Ciprian Tremas, a holy knight of Valis," the knight replied and offered his hand to Xian to help the mercenary to his feet.

Carianna shrugged her shoulders. "Many do not share my idea of being involved with combat at all. There are some that say that the wisest can avoid any battle and Rada, the wisest of all, doesn't appreciate any who say otherwise. Then again, Rada never wrote us a book to read." The priestess scratched her head while firmly holding onto her borrowed steed. "I try not to take stock in people who say they know what Gods think, though."

Kylia had finished securing all her gear that may have come loose in the fight, afterwards she got onto her horse and looked to the current discussion.

"Isn't fighting to disarm and disable an opponent a non-violent form of combat, that is what I was taught by my father. I agree with your tactics Carianna, you did well in this battle."

She gave her opinion and then watched Ciprian and Xian from the roadside, she did not want to interrupr their little conversation. Hoping that they had no more surprises for today she watched the others, not ignoring behind her as she listened for anymore potential trouble.

"Well, thank you," Carianna replied for a lack of anything else to say. At first, she thought of saying the same to her, but, truth be told, she hadn't seen what Kylia had done, if anything at all. Speak your mind, she told herself. "Well, I didn't get the chance to see you at work, but I'm sure you did well too."

Xian took Ciprian's hand to get helped up. It seemed that it would be more redeeming in Cian's eyes if he came along, thus erasing the mistake he made earlier. "Nice to meet you Ciprian." Catching the women's small conversation, Xian found it better not to comment any more. The priests and priestesses of Rada must lead extremely sheltered lives. I don't think every single thing in this world could be solved without violence.

The boy looked at the priestess and spoke with that spark of the young the theif he'd once been when they first met, his eyes gleaming with admiration for her and just a hint of mischevousness that all young boys had. "Well I think Rada made a damn good choice... uh sorry about the language. I'm still trying to learn proper manners for a squire."

The boy turned and gave Kylia a nod when the half elf approached and then he turned back towards Cari and spoke with an earnest wrm tone to his voice. "Could you do a favor for me Cari? Would you..teach me the proper way to pray for my sister...I mean. Do you think...Rada would mind protecting her? I..I'd be really grateful..."

((OOC: Awww poor kid. He's too shy to admit he really doesn't know how to go about praying heh.))
