First topic message reminder :

The road doesn't actually go straight to Berkshire from Friezant. Instead, there's a harbor that is owned by the city of Berkshire which sends people with the money across on a nice ship. All others can usually make the trip by fishing boat whenever one arrives. The benefit of the fishing boats is that they're free, if the fisherdude allows you to get on. The drawbacks are significant, though: no set schedule, and it's sometimes days before one arrives; once you're on board, you're not getting off until the day's fish has been caught; you might be coerced into helping bone and gut the fish as payment; the size and class is really... not elegant.

In any case, this topic is about the luxurious, almost ridiculous ferry that is operated by some company out of Berkshire. At least these guys are transparent about what they use the insane profits for: paying the two five-star gourmet chefs and keeping all other expenses down. And with a ship this fancy, you'd better believe there are expenses. At least they adjust their fare down every few months to account for their surplus cash. Marginally. It might as well not change.

------

Hours later, as the sun sets, Leticia and Ina arrive on the docks. Leticia is wearing a new shirt that's covered in a leaf design, and the bags are restocked with goods from a town that's too small to be on the map at all.

Leticia buys two tickets on the fancier ship, which will take them right to the edge of the Hightown. The boat will also give each of them a small room of her own. The rooms are small, yes, but that's not to say they aren't luxurious.

"Yeah, that's my point too. I don't like seeing people die, but especially people I know and like. So if I had to choose between seeing you die or seeing the creepy guy with the scarf over there die, I'd choose to save your life."

Ina blushes, but says quietly, "We've only known each other a few days, but I'd do the same for you."

Leticia doesn't hear the quiet words or notice the blushing. Or maybe she does, but she isn't distracted from her rambling. "But then, if I had to save my own life, and someone was trying to kill me, I wouldn't think twice before retaliating to protect myself."

"Of course." Ina smiles at her friend

The agreement ends the current train of conversation.

Leticia goes silent after the exchange, not knowing what to talk about next.

After some time on a ship, Ina and Leticia arrive, finally, at Berkshire. Ina looks around, awestruck at all the nice houses, shops, etc.

"Should we try to find an inn, or a nice shop first?"

It's about an hour or two after midnight. The deck is silent, with all the late-night parties having ended already, the participants having gone to bed.

Tod sits on a chair on the deck in contemplation, a book and a lamp beside him. The lamp is off - he could not concentrate on the words, so he opted for staring off into the distance.

His emotions are clearly in turmoil. He eventually takes off his fancy coat, stares at it for several long minutes, then walks up to the rail of the deck and stares off.

Finally, he flings the coat into the water, then the rest of his expensive attire. He mutters a prayer in some long-dead tongue, and stays standing at the railing of the ship until the sun rises. The daylight in the distance brings him back to alertness. He snaps free from his trance. The cold sea breeze has made him damp and frigid. He grabs his book and returns to his room.

He may not be aware of this, but he has just turned 25. May it be a happy birthday for him.
