Cian awoke as the first shafts of morning sunlight hit him, the young theif felt a bit stiff, but it was far better than sleeping on hard ground. There weren't many times in his short life, that the young theif had a chance to sleep in a bed. Emir made sure to keep such luxuries to a minimum for his charges, that way it kept them hungry and motivated to do their job. It also made for a hard life.

The boy glanced around and noticed Cip asleep on the floor as he stretched and yawned. After touching his side to test it, Cian nodded slightly as he felt fine. Not even the slightest scar was left from the stab wound he'd taken, Carianna's friend, the High Priest had done his job well. The wound was gone as if it had never been. Standing up, the boy made two deft movements, as if striking with a dagger then stretched to get the blood flowing. After the short exercise, he stretched again and sat on the bed, he'd wait for Cip to awaken and go from that point onto the day.

The hearth had burnt itself out sometime that night, so the apartment had chilled, but Ciprian slept fine wrapped in a blanket. It was made for colder weather after all. The knight woke as he heard Cian moving about, causing floor boards to creak. With a stretch and yawn, Ciprian sat up and groaned. Sleeping on the floor was no good for his back. He twisted around until his back made a satisfying pop.

"Ah," he sighed and stood. "Mornin' kid. I'd ask if you slept well, but that much is obvious. You slept like a ton of bricks." The knight rubbed his chin, feeling the stubble that had grown in overnight. "I'm afraid there's no food in the place. I took it all with me when I left for Lesmoa, but we'll go down to the tavern and get some breakfast in a bit."

There was no fresh water either, but he'd get a bath and a shave in the barracks. Ciprian went to his dresser that was beside the bed and pulled out some fresh clothes. He had nothing small enough for Cian, but the boy needed new clothes. Walking around with a blood stained jerkin wasn't any good though. Ciprian took a white tunic out of his dresser and tossed it to Cian. "You can have that. I'll get you some new clothes today as well."

Scars heal, glory fades
And all we're left with are the memories made
Pain hurts, but only for a minute
Life is short so go on and live it
'Cause the chicks dig it

Cian was almost shocked, "new clothes" the thought almost made the boy's head spin. He'd only the few cloths and almost rags, Emir had given him or what he'd stolen. Cip was a great guy, the boy caught the tunic and immediately took off his jerkin, taking the time and making sure to fold it and place it out of the way first. Cian wouldn't be able to make use of hidden pockets and recesses in Cip's tunic, because there were none. Still, he could always do something with his own clothes later, but for now he was more than happy to wear a fresh shirt. The boy took a quick whiff of his arm, he needed a bath too, he smelt of blood, sweat and dirt from the trail. Looking over at Cip once he'd dressed he smiled and spoke, as hungry as ever.

"Thanks Cip... New clothes?!! You're great!! And yep I'm hungry alight. Hey..as a knight's assistant.. what am I supposed to do in the mornings? I mean do I polish armor and get packs ready an stuff? I wanna repay you for all the help you've been giving me."

Ciprian dressed where he stood, changing from his sleeping pants to his breeches and a crisp white shirt. "Don't worry about it Cian," Ciprian said after pulling his shirt over his head. "First off, let's go get breakfast and quick bath, eh? I have someone to meet at an inn. Today will be busy." Ciprian sat down on the bed and pulled on some regular boots.

Cian smiled and spoke as he was all ready to go. The boy's exhuberance and chipper attitude couldn't help but gush from him. This was the best he'd been treated in a long time.

"Fine by me. I hope your friend doesn't mind me tagging along eh? Gods a bath will be good..from all the blood and dirt I smell like a pack horse."
