To the Horse Market

Post by Ciprian Tremas »

Ciprian and Xian left the inn and set out into the city. After speaking to a local, Ciprian found out where the horse market was. As the two men walked through Khina's streets, Ciprian was getting a little uncomfortable with the silence. Xian made him uncomfortable, but not because of what he was capable of, but because he had led such a starkly different life.

"About your payment..." Ciprian started. He felt quite embarrassed by his large offer when Xian first joined them. It was partially due to his ignorance, but also because he wanted to help someone who had suffered so much. "It seems my offer was a little too uhh...generous. Since Silemria didn't come with us, I can still afford it, but if you think that it's best to renegotiate, I could pay you something a little more reasonable. There may also be a reward on this Emir that would be split amongst the group."

Pain hurts, but only for a minute
Life is short so go on and live it

"Yeah, the payment you offered made me a little uncomfortable." Xian honestly responded while scratching his head. "I'm not used to large sums of money, and really not that used to the thought of traveling with some sort of nobility. I ain't never really been near nobles much at all. So just name a price that's reasonable. I ain't too picky on how much I make as long as I get to eat."

Xian's response put Ciprian at ease, and the knight nodded. "I'll pay you what you need to keep food in your belly, pay rent, and buy yourself some better equipment," Ciprian replied. At least if Xian had better equipment, he would hopefully be able to find better jobs afterwards. "In fact, I think you should probably get another sword before we go much further. Tomorrow morning we can visit a blacksmith and see if there are any swords for sale."

"Yeah." Xian sullenly responded. He didn't understand what to do in a situation where he was doted upon. The fact that Ciprian was heaping on the kindness made the farm boy a little uncomfortable. "A new sword would probably be a good investment."

Ciprian said no more. He was still feeling quite awkward around Xian as well, but it was in his nature to want to help people. The knight led the way to the market in silence, weaving through the crowd with the more imposing mercenary behind him. Once they reached the markets, Ciprian helped Xian chose a suitable horse--large enough to carry his weight, and with a mild temperment. With the new horse, Ciprian and Xian returned to the inn.

OOC: Now you have to write up the horse. Go to Xian's update thread. :twisted:
