PostSubject: Berkshire-Friezant Road   Sun Aug 16, 2015 8:28 pm

First topic message reminder :

This road connects Berkshire to Friezant. It's actually composed of two parts. One is gated and kept far secure of any influences of poverty. Of course, the ticket price for the train helps too.

For that reason, this topic is about the dirt road supplied for the dirty sailors, vagabonds, and peasants who for some reason have decided to travel between Berkshire and Friezant. There might be enemies, but very rarely. It's more likely that bandits will be found off the side of the road.

The road doesn't actually go straight to Berkshire from Friezant. There's a bay in the way. So the Bayport Ferry might be able to take you across... if you've got the funds.

"I came by when I saw the flames, and I wished to see that nobody was injured," Hilda explains. "You are well, so I bid you farewell."

Ina's hand, which had strayed to the quiver at her side and nocked an arrow, relaxes.

"Goodbye, miss. Thank you for the assistance."

Her tone is polite and formal to a fault.

The threatening stances of Ina and Leticia were no doubt the reason for Hilda's departure. Not that Hilda seemed to care; her expression never wavered from the serene stare, full of wisdom and regret. Her involvement had seemed... ethereal. Come to think of it, was the woman real, or just an apparition? As soon as she vanished - and just how had she vanished? - it was as if she had never been.

A rush comes over Leticia, who can't seem to believe what just happened. The smoldering tree on the ground proves the flamethrower was used, and the arrows lying around were certainly loosed from Ina's bow.

But the distinct lack of corpses makes the whole scene feel like a dream. Neither Leticia nor Ina has any injuries to show from the battle, nor any trophy. Hilda's departure left no sign, not even a footprint.

Leticia's brain gets stuck pondering the reality of what had just been.

Ina mutters a short "Hmmm..." and then says, "I thought those things were just old myths."

Leticia blinks. "What?"

"Those creatures that attacked us. They're...like something I've heard before. " Shadow beings" that attacked people and drug them off, maybe 10 or so years ago? Yoren made a point to research them, because they were strange. I read a section in one of the books he had, and they sounded like fairy stories or something..."

"Shadows aren't our enemies, silly," Leticia says, but she looks preoccupied. Lost in thought, perhaps? Or is she just confused?

"No, but those things there sure seemed to be."

She takes her glasses out of the pocket on her shirt and puts them back on.

"I guess we should continue on, huh? It's almost dark."

"Oh no! I forgot to check the distance scale on the map! Hold on, let me..."

A few minutes later, Leticia discovers they're not even halfway there. More like one-third of the way there.

Ina takes a deep breath. "What should we do? No way we can make it before night falls. And... I really don't wanna run into any of those in the night..."

"I'm so sorry, it's all my fault, I should have been more attentive, it was such a stupid mistake," Leticia rushes out, looking on the verge of tears.

Ina wraps her arms around the older girl and offers a hug.

"Hey, it isn't your fault. If anything, it's those stupid things that attacked us. Let's set up camp and stay calm, 'kay?" Ina sounds rather confident, and even smiles as she unwraps her arms.

"O-okay." Leticia tries to smile but fails.

A while later, there's a nice fire going. Ina takes a loaf of bread, some cheese, meat, and various condiments out of her backpack.

"Sandwich?"

"Oh, yes, that would be lovely," Leticia responds, tinkering with the fire until the's satisfied. Then she sets up a kettle filled with water.

"Do you like tea? I bought several types. I have White Peach, Pumpkin Spice, Mint Green, Herbal Rose, and Sharp Ginger." The cases all look ridiculously expensive, but the cups she brings out are very simplistic in design. And tie-dyed. Pastel flame colors.

"Tea is lovely. Although... I don't know much about it, so whatever you think is best."

Is it the firelight, or is she embarrassed?

"Well, let's read the boxes. Maybe they can help? Let's see..."


• White Peach is ideal for the sunrise, as it is sweet and creamy to ease you awake, but packs just the power to keep you awake all day.
• Pumpkin Spice is a romantic tea to share with your partner to combat winter's chill. It also protects against colds, so drink up!
• Mint Green is a tea for after lunch. It's healthy for you, and possesses a powerful blend of flavors from around the world.
• Herbal Rose is a romantic dessert tea that aids in sleeping. Its fragrant aroma is said to vanquish headaches as well.
• Sharp Ginger tea is a health tea, which relieves nausea, improves digestion, relieves menstrual pains and improves male fertility.


Leticia stumbles over the last few words and stows the ginger tea back in her sack, blushing. She'll save it in case either of them gets sick. She puts back the peach, pumpkin, and green teas too. "Seems like Herbal Rose would be best for this time of day."

"Alright then. Though, shouldn't we keep a watch rotation in case any more of those things show up?"

"Yeah, here!"

And so they had sandwiches and tea.

Really? I had it a few times, though I've no idea what kind. Yoren seems to prefer coffee, so that's usually what's around."

"I don't know what it was that we had in the forest. It was like chocolate, but a lot more bitter... It wasn't coffee, though."
