Rest in Lesmoa

The village of Ales on the outskirts of Kanon and Valis has been taken over by a cult of Baylos. As the village has no nation to protect them, they are counting on mercenaries to save them.

Rest in Lesmoa

Post by Meridian »

The day before, Meridian made his decision to return home to the village of Ales, and after walking from Roid, his first stop was the small city of Lesmoa after night fell. He didn't quite have the money for a stay at an inn, nor did he want to expose himself to the social atmosphere. Instead, the half-elf hunkered down in an alleyway amongst a few barrels, wrapped up in a cloak.

OOC: Dark Alley + Hawt dark elf = trouble?

Cebina walked through the streets of Lesmoa. She had wandered for some time now since she had left Flaim, and had headed in no particular direction. The monastery had given her a small sum of money, just to help get her started on her journey, but it most likely wouldn't go very far unless she found an another source soon.

No problem, she thought, Just have to find a rich man with a large pouch of money.

Men, she found, could be easily manipulated. Most of them anyway. Some would pay a good amount, even drop their fears of her race for a good night with her. Of course it all depended on the circumstances, and Cebina had not been in this town long enough to feel comfortable. For now, she side stepped into an alley, not noticing that a cloaked figure amongst the barrels and walked until she found she was out of sight.

There, she took a moment to relax, taking a seat on a wooden crate with a long sigh. She was tired from walking. Looking for an inn could wait for now...

OOC: When you include your character's thoughts, you should put them in italics. Quotation marks can be confusing.

Meridian kept still as someone entered the alley, but his heart started pounding in his chest. He prayed to himself that the passerby wouldn't notice him, which she didn't, but she did sit down on the other side of the alley across from him. He was, however, relieved to see it was a woman, which he could tell from the way she walked and what he could make out of her figure beneath the cloak. Should I say something? I'll probably startle her...but how long will she sit here? Meridian thought, his mind tumbling over his next move. It was an uncomfortable arrangement.

Finally, the half-elf lifted his head, hoping that the motion would be enough to get her attention. With his head raised, she would be able to see his pale, feminine face under his hood.

OOC: Sorry about that. I'll remember it for future posts.

Cebina had not been sitting for long before she noticed a movment in the corner of her eye. She was startled, but made sure to keep her emotions undercontrol as she looked over to the person sitting across from her in the alley.

A cloaked figure that she had missed now looked up at her. A feminin face with green eyes looked up at her with uncertainty. She relaxed, seeing no reason to be afraid of this woman.

"Well, I didn't realise I'd be sharing an alley", she spoke to the cloaked girl as if she were speaking to a friend, "So what's your story? Don't like crowd out there?"

Meridian breathed a sigh of relief when she didn't seem too frightened. "You could say that," he replied softly, his voice markedly baritone. It probably wasn't what she was expecting to hear out of his face.

Cebina went silent as the figure answered back with a male voice. It wasn't something she had expected to come from the face she saw. The idea of it being a man seemed to turn on a switch inside her. She instinctively flirted with any man she saw, though she wasn't certain she felt like trying it with this one. The fact that he was crouched in an alley indicated that he most likely had no money for an inn, so she couldn't see how he could be usefull to her at all.

Still, it wouldn't hurt to stay on his good side for now, at least until she knew more about him.She crossed her legs and leaned against the wall, sicking her chest out proudly. She still had the cloak, but her nice curves could still be noticed.

"Yeah, crowds can be such a bother at times", she kept the same friendly tone she had before, "Have you been here long? I'm new in town you see. If you can tell me anything about this place it would really help me out."

Meridian noticed her figure as she repositioned herself, and turned his eyes away. It was a nice form, much like Lianora's, the only woman he had ever been intimate with, but he had no intentions of trying that again. "I'm only passing through," he replied. "But maybe I could help. Do you need a place to stay maybe?"

Cebina couldn't help but feel annoyed at the fact that the boy turned his eyes away from her like that. She didn't like being ignored. She couldn't help but roll her eyes as he asked her if she needed a place to stay.

No, she thought sarcasticaly, I want to sleep in an alley all night. Of course I'm going to look for an inn or something!

"That would be helpfull, though I was hoping you could tell me more about the people here."

She got up and streched almost seductively, "But I suppose it's getting late. A place to stay would be nice. Do you know where the nearest inn might be?"

"I didn't really look, but I think there's a place about a block away," he replied. I could probably afford a room, but that would mean dealing with people... "This... might be an odd request from some stranger you just met in an alley...but if you go to an inn, can I go with you? I really don't want to be alone in such a public place... I tend to get mistaken for a woman a lot and well, they usually aren't very gentle about it."

Cebina lifted an eyebrow at what the boy said.

"Well no offence, dear, but before you said anything I was sur you were one too. And to be honest the way you act doesn't really indicate otherwise."

It was quite a bold request, asking a stranger to share a room. Usually she would refuse. He clearly had no money for a room of his own and she wasn't into helping other for free. And she certainly wasn't going to help him out of pity either. In the end she gained nothing by helping him. Still, it wouldn't cost her extra if they were in the same room. And if anything, it would be more entertaining that spending the night alone. Not that she feared being alone, but she'd be more bored than anything else.

"You can come along if you like", she finaly said, "But you'll be sharing a room with me since I'm not paying for a second room. Also, don't try anything with me unless you're willing to pay up for it, understand? A body like this doesn't come cheap, you know."

It rankled Meridian that she would suggest that he would do anything to her without her consent, but she didn't know him. "I can assure you I would never do anything to you that you didn't want," he said sternly, though he suddenly realized that the sentence didn't quite come out right. Lowering his head, he hid under his hood so she couldn't see the blush on his cheeks.

The dark elf couldn't help but laugh at the boy's comment as he lowered his head to try and hide blush that brushed his cheeks. Her laughing didn't seemed to be making him more comfortable either.

"Oh don't worry dear. I'm not worried about what you might or might not do to me. I really couldn't care less. All I'm saying is that if you DO want something, just be ready to hand over a good amount of coin for it."

She turned away, not really caring what his reaction would be at her offer of selling herself and took a few steps towards the end of the alleyway.

"So? Are you going to take me to the inn or not?"

Meridian's blush only got darker as he realized what she meant. "Well...uh...right...this way," the half-elf stammered, then stepped out of the alley and headed toward one of the inns he'd seen when he came into town. This was shaping up to be one awkward night, if he was going to spend it with a prostitute. It was preferable to the alternative though.

As they started walking, he realized that they hadn't introduced themselves yet. "I'm Meridian, by the way," he said to his companion.

"Pleasure to meet you, Meridian. You can call me Cebina."

The boy was cute, she'd give him that. The way he blushed and acted so shy and meek was adorable in a sense. She wondered for a moment if or how he'd react when he'd come to find out that she was a dark elf. People didn't always react very well, not that she cared what anyone thought of her anyway.

He led her inside and inn and she walked casualy over to the inn keeper, placing her coins down on the desk.

"A room for the night, please."

The innkeeper looked over the two travelers with a raised brow. The one under the cloak was obviously a woman, and for some reason, she was hiding, but he wasn't going to probe as to why. His eye lingered on Meridian longer, trying to decide whether or not he was a man or a woman, but judging by the lack of curves underneath his cloak, the innkeeper realized he was male. A couple?

"One or two beds?" he asked.
