"Treasure hunting..." Adelfæd took another peaceful sip of her tea and savoured the soothing taste. "You are really quite odd for an Amerite." She finished her tea and after puting the cup down carefully she turned towards Felicia. She put both her fists down on the ground next to her and pulled herself over.

"Now that we are to be companions, please allow me to know who I am going to be travelling with." She leaned over and her swift hands clasped in on Felicia's head. Her fingers studied the features of the priestess, starting from her delicate ears. They brushed across her smooth cheeks down to her chin and up to her eyebrows. Tracing around the large eyes with great care before coming down along the ridge of her small nose they arrived at the tip and dropped down softly to her moist lips. There the fragile fingers lingered for a short while before departing. Adelflæd sat up straight again before speaking.
"You are cute." after a short pause she added: "Also older than you sound."

"Well then," she stood up next to the bewildered Felicia. "I shall prepare myself, please take all that you might need. Chesterfield is not too far upstream but if you wish you are free to stay the night here as well and we can leave in the morning." She then proceeded to pick up a small knapsack from the corner next to the table and started packing.

"Ain't that right. Never sold a thing in my life. I'm more of a delivery sort of guy. Knives being my main merchandise. Heh." Fink scratched his cheek before continuing, "frankly, there's not much more to tell. There's a girl coming into town. A priestess of Amera. See, when I started looking for allies, that was one of the first places I looked, them being followers of their Goddess instead of the king and whatnot. And what d'ya think I found? A girl nobody wants to talk about. I've uncovered a number of secrets in my line of work, but this one... this one was special. I barely even recognized there is a secret to uncover, let alone what it is. So I thinks to myself, something that private must be important, right? So I tracked the girl down and here we are. And that's the long and short of it that is, mate. So what do you say, eh? Fancy an adventure into the unknown?"

Fink exhaled happily and smiled.

"Well that's a relief right there, no doubt about it. Glad you're on board, mate, 'cause I told you so much I'd have had to kill you if you refused. And that'd be a shame, 'cause I think you're starting to grow on me, heh."

"You should have seen the welt that would grow on your face if you tried to off me."
The smile on Jin's face is unmistakably genuine.

"Onwards to excitement, poverty and being on the run with an eye over our shoulders then!"

@ADELFLÆD

Felicia's blood rushed and colored her pink face. Cute?.. Slowly, she placed hew warm palms on her cheeks. A smile appeared on her face. Adelfæd's compliment had sent the priestess floating in the air, elated and daydreaming.

Bang! Bang! The door rattled and shook.

"Felicia! Are you ok in there? You've been inside for far too long!"

Felicia was snuffed out of her happy thoughts. Her blood still rushed inside her, but now it was a rush of anger rather than excitement. Her teeth gritted and her face pouted, she opened the door.

"What!?" she shouted at Brand who stared at her in amazement, taken aback by her tone.

"You are okay!"

"I am!" She said with a snob.

"Great!" Brand replied with relief, "let's go!"

"Wait!" the priestess exclaimed, stopping her bodyguard from walking away, "She's going with us."

"WHAT!!! No way!" Brand replied, his ace contorted with both surprise and disgust, "we can't take a blind girl with us! She'll slow us down."

"Also..." he added in a whisper as he leaned closer to Felicia, "She's ugly as well."

'Twas the night before plot point, when all through the land
Not a character stirred, no matter how bland;
The stage was set ready, prepared with much care,
In hopes that the actors soon all would be there;

Amera's two children turned in for the night,
Although one of them had to sleep outside.
Their hostess was wearing her finest night-cap,
With an all knowing smile on her face as she slept.

The bard spent his night surrounded by clatter,
Simple bar noises and none of them mattered.
A drunkard brought down his mug with a crash
And was swiftly dealt with, carried out by his sash.

The rogue bid farewell to his newfound friend
In hopes that on this man he can really depend.
The monk turned away from his buddy in hood,
He wasn't sure why but he was in good mood.

And so with a step both lively and quick
They went their own way in this town of brick.
They promised each other that when the next morning came,
They'd find one another to hunt for their game.

Somewhere far away slept the once noble king
Meanwhile, the night ended and folded her wing.
The sun stretched his arms and climbed up the wall
Until there were hardly any shadows at all.

Wet grass smelled of sunlight and squished underfoot,
As three youngling heroes continued their route.
They headed to Chesterfield where a meal they would share
And to no one's surprise, by midday they were there.

It's true that the boy spent his time in a brood,
But the priestess told him to just eat his food.
She was also amazed by the sight of the town
And spent most of her time just looking around.

It was all oh so new, though not really that good,
All the walls in the tavern were covered in soot.
Her guard always kept his left hand on his pack
And made sure no one sneaks up on them from the back.

A figure in black hood watched all that from afar
He was very happy they made it this far.
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
Which was all you could see, since his hood hung quite low.

He smirked even further, revealing his teeth
And moved some of his daggers out and into their sheaths.
He moved in the shadows, slowly walking away
To tell his new friend that they found their prey.

He was following them from the gates of the town
And for most of that time he was wearing a frown.
For he knew very well that two kids he should see,
But to his great surprise they were actually three.

Still, he spoke not a word and kept on with his work,
For his work lay, of course, in the art of the lurk.
And so after he followed the three through the market,
He was fully convinced one of them was his target.

He was light on his feet and gave a small whistle,
In a place where he knew that his partner would listen.
This is where I should stop and my pen I must stay,
HAPPY WRITING TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD PLAY!

Jin stares for a couple of seconds with a raised eyebrow.

"This looks like the beginning of a joke. A grumpy fighter, a cheerful priestess and a blind girl walk into a bar.. What do you have on the other two, part of the package or just travelling along?"

Oh boy, this could go wrong in any number of ways.

"The boy wasn't a surprise, he is also from the temple according to me eh... research. The blind girl, however..." Fink scratched his chin, "a charity case maybe? You know them holy types, always lending a helping hand to the poor and whatnot. Makes you wonder how they survived 'til now at all."

"Well then, let's go introduce ourselves. Wait, I don't know your name either. Just as well, you probably go by your professional name like our beautiful Fiona at the tavern, yes?"

Jin casually walks up to the trio.

"Well met travelers, what brings you to our less than wonderful town? Your eyes have a sense of wonder you normally don't see around here. Well, the two of you anyway - my apologies young miss!"

Adelflæd swiftly bonked Brand with her staff as he jumped forward.
“Down boy.” She followed with a quick poke straight on the nose when he turned towards her. She could smell some blood.
“Think nothing of it. We all have our own issues. Such slights of the tongue can happen this close to mealtime do you not agree? Many things can come and go while dining.” Her dark voice glided the conversation.
”It just so happens Lady Felicia and” she gestured in the direction of the man holding his nose.”Brand here, have been traveling for some time.” Agitated Brand tried to grab the staff pointed in his direction but slipped and fell face first onto the street.The magpie that had taken flight earlier landed on the staff and the telling cry rang out.
“...and could use some rest. What better way than to have gentlemen who are acquainted in the local cuisine offer their expertise. “

Fink mumbled something about blowing a perfectly good cover, pushed back his hood and walked up to Jin from behind, leaning his arm on the man's shoulder.

"Heh, the little girl is playing you like a flute, mate. Next she'll be asking you to pay for their lunch. Still, we do know a couple of good places and it's been a while since I had meself some new company for lunch."

Coren was sitting behind the bar, when he noted the few new patrons enter the tavern. May seemed weird, but warriors posing as bodyguards to travelling priests wasn't a rare nor uncommon sight.
The blind girl was the odd one out in this case. She seemed something different. Not an aide to the priestess, that's for sure.
Something told Coren, that this trio was the lead he was looking for. He finished his drink and approached the trio.
He took off his hat in a courteous manner and greeted the priestess.

@All

“You… little…” Brand spat, still down on the ground. His muscles tightened and his fist clenched as he got up. He turned to the blind girl and shot at her a fierce look, wiping the blood of his nose with the back of his hand. He was ready to pounce her for revenge when a confused Felicia caught his eyes.

The priestess was confounded at the presence of strangers in front of them. She can’t fully decide on why they approached them out of the blue. Is it because they knew us and our purpose or is it because I’m cute? She asked herself blushing after the second. Adelfæd’s compliment still imprinted on her head like how young ladies would too.

I must act natural… I must! She reminded herself.

Felicia gulped and relaxed herself. She held her head up and put a big sweet smile. “Good day, strangers!” she greeted gleefully, “I’m Felicia, priestess of Amera.”

“That’s Brand our bodyguard,” she pointed at the angry lad, his fierce look now turned to the strangers, “and this is Adelfæd, our friend,” she finished, resting her hands on the blind girl’s shoulders still holding up her sweet smile.

She turned to Adelfæd and nodded in approval, “And think she’s right. We should go inside and eat!”

At the next tavern

Jin saw the stranger walking up to their table, as he was trying to start a conversation with Brand. Brand's eyes told him that he had noticed too.

"And they say three's a crowd."

He momentarily wondered if Felicia had come to Chesterfield to meet this man or if she was expecting a message delivered. There had not been enough time to learn more about her party. This will no doubt complicate manners..

Fink looked at the newcomer with annoyance and suspicion. He really didn't need more crowd.

"And what's your business with us, eh?"

@All

Felicia sat at the end of the bench. Adelfæed followed to sit besides her when Brand interrupted.

“Move!” he said and shoved the inattentive blind girl aside then sat besides the priestess.

“What’s up boys?” he challenged, killing any conversation that's brewing. He placed his arms on the table and displayed his firm muscles while flexing them then rubbed his hands like a delighted child having a treat in front of him.

“Are you in need of service from our priestess here? A healing service maybe?” the fighter asked, "It'll cost you a bit but I assure you! It's so damned effective!"

Brand, despite having suspicions, continued to be his cocky self while Felicia sat quietly and observant still holding her sweet smile.

- Coren the Nightingale at your service - Coren said with his hat still in his hand. - I am merely a traveling bard looking for companionship in these hard times is all. I've heard there are marauders all over, not to mention other nasties, and whilst I am capable with a blade myself - His langseax hung from his belt, and everybody could see it. - It is much wiser to travel in larger groups. I can pay too if you so desire my good sir, and I can earn in any town we pass, for there are too few as good tale spinners and masters of the song as I am. - He said to Brand.

Fink leaned back in his seat, slinging one of his arms over the back of the chair.

"So let me get this straight, mate.  You're a traveling bard looking for some pals and you just walk from tavern to tavern, from table to table in hopes that you'll run into someone who:

a. Actually goes somewhere.
2. Happens to go in a direction you'd be interested in
and finally, will agree to let you tag along.

Am I getting this right?"
