Mikael

“Is that so..?” Mikael pondered with a pensive look before turning towards Agrippa. The hint of mischievery in his eyes. “Sorry Agrippa, looks like you’ll have to make-do with camping out.” He only meant it as a joke… mostly. But even then he wouldn’t outright abandon his companions without good reason. Even if said companion threatens to kill you one day. What? He’s still alive and kicking!

“Can’t have you destroying precious relationships with the townsmen now can we?”


Guardsman Gret

Gret Siegel was unlike his brother Hans. He kept his temper in check and watched his older brother’s back. Even became a military man like his brother to keep an eye on him. Anywhere Hans went, so did he. Thankfully he didn’t have to keep his brother’s temper in check today as the pretty man stepped in before he would have to. They were a curious bunch for sure.

The angry woman was most definitely a Farm Girl, he could smell the earth and hard work with hints of manure emanating from her. No one could fool their nose, the scent always follows. The smaller young man smelled of wealth and flowers, and somehow daintier than a doily. He was quite literally the opposite of a Farmer. The armored man intimidated him not because of his appearance but how he smelled of bloody death and restraint. A frightening stench that was clouded by the most peculiar of scents. The wide-eyed girl who smelled of woodland nuts and squirrels was an interesting one. What was disconcerting was how powerful she reeked of poor choices… Speaking of, why was she beside him?

Ceres

With everyone focused elsewhere, Ceres took in the sights and watched the quieter guardsman with curious eyes. A grin splayed on her lips as she stood next to him and straightened herself to imitate his stance as best she could.

“Clive.. Look!”

Ceres attempted to whisper to get Clive’s attention, just barely keeping her feet planted to the ground with all the boundless energy that surged through her. She only just wanted to show how good of a gatekeeper she was being.

Agrippa

The more Mikael said, the more her fists clenched, nails digging painfully into her palms. She moved in a flash. One moment passive, tense but still. The next, her arm lashed out like a whip, knuckles connecting most satisfyingly with the center of his smug face. Smoothly, gracefully, Agrippa strode up to Hans, looking down at him despite being a whole foot shorter.

"I suggest you reevaluate your priorities," she said in a too-sweet tone.

Guardsman Hans

Hans blinked twice, the fiery eyes of the short girl boring holes into his own. He was so distracted that he didn't even see the other girl slip past him. Then again, even if he had been watching, he might not have noticed. Tense as he was, her sudden voice made him jump, sword raised up above his head in an instinctive, panicked swing.

Clive

"Ceres, no!" Clive called, his fingers flying up to the bridge of his nose. The girl was adorable, but by Natsieuu, she was a headache sometimes. His trained eyes were pulled from the smiling Ceres to the guard poised to strike, and with a grunt of exertion, he threw himself forward. In a second, he held the guard in a bearhold hug, the man's arms pinned tight to either side of his chest. His sword now lay on the ground beside him.

Guardsman Gret

Everything had happened so fast there was hardly any time to react. The girl now known to him as Ceres had startled his brother enough to provoke an attack. Without hesitating, Gret had pushed Ceres away from harm and drew his sword in one fluid movement to block his brother's swing, except that it never came.

"Brother!"

No, what happened was the large man had nearly thrown himself to grapple Hans. And now Gret stood with his sword drawn pointed at Clive, the look of fear ever present upon his face.

Clive

All Clive saw once the fervor of the moment sank was the other guard, eyes wide with fear, sword pointed directly at him. The fervor rose once more. In an unparalleled level of violence for the peaceful man, he calmly, serenely, even (one might say) casually grabbed the guard by the helmet and slammed him into the head of his partner. They both crumpled into a heap below.

Clive sighed.

"Come inside," he said in a tired tone. "Our first stop is the temple."

Ceres

"Okay!" Ceres happily exclaimed jumping to her feet from where the guard had pushed her away. Along with the guards, Mikael laid prone too from the whop of a punch Agrippa had given him and Ceres strolled over squatting next to him.

"Come on Mikael, Clive says we're going to the temple and that means you too." She poked and prodded him to see if he'd get up to no avail. Seeing as he didn't respond Ceres took a hold of his hand and began to drag him.

"Come. On. Mikael. We. Gotta. Gooooo." Ceres struggled with Mikael's deadweight and pouted. "Cliiiiiiiive, Mikael doesn't wanna go to the temple. He keeps sleeping."

Agrippa

Completely unshaken by the hostile turn of events, Agrippa picked up the limp Mikael with ease and flipped him over her shoulder like a sack of potatoes. She patted his rump affectionately.

"Such a silly-willy, taking a nap at a time like this," she scoffed to Ceres. "He's such a fucking dweeb, isn't he?"

At that, Agrippa followed Clive through the gates, the ragdolled illusionist's arms swaying rythmically behind her.

Clive

You hurt a man.

They were going to hurt her. I had to-

You promised never to hurt a man again.

Showing no signs of his internal struggle, Clive walked briskly through the gates, pausing a moment to smell the air. Ah, Hohenholm. It had been so long, but still that deep aroma of wurst and honey was fresh in his mind. A bustling utopia in the center of his once-enemy, though the old state didn't have the somewhat unsettling discrimination against farmers.

As they passed by the market stalls. Clive took notice to the effects of the newfound bigotry. The wares, once cheaper than those in the country proper, now were enough to make even an artisan weep. There seemed a great deal more upper class wandering the streets, and there seemed a harem and whole food vendor on every corner.

"Gentrification," he mumbled.

Ceres

Ceres smiled at Agrippa and giggled in agreement. The sleeping Mikael's arms dangled over the smaller girl's shoulder she couldn't help herself from slapping the swaying hands in a small game of one-sided patty cake. Her amusement indulged, Ceres skipped her way over to Clive's side humming a happy tune. She was mostly happy that Clive hadn't scolded her yet over the weird thing with the guards. As long as she wasn't in trouble she's fine with whatever happened. That being said, she was curious about her new surroundings and barely kept herself from running off when Clive had said something.

"What's gentlification?" Her attempt to say gentrification failed as her tongue had become tied as they say in trying to repeat it.

Clive

"It's when..." Clive stopped, trying to think of a way to explain it that Ceres would understand. His tutor oh so long ago had used many large words, like economic redelegation and demographic shifts, to explain the concept. But for Ceres, that would not do.

"It's when people make old places seem better," he finally said. "It's to make rich people live there and spend their money."

He hadn't expected it from a place like Hohenholm, but then again, Hohenholm seemed different. Different... and desperate. As they passed a row of townhouses, wane faces of miserable looking children peeked out at them from behind cracked windows.

Agrippa

The girl, still irked by the debacle at the gate, caught sight of the staring faces and frowned.

"Kids watching," she muttered, stating what Clive had already noticed. "Think they're friendly? Or are they gonna try and play lynch the fucking farmer like the guards?"

Her hand went to the handle of her cleaver instinctively, but then hesitated. Despite the urges of the warlord, she wouldn't hurt a child.

Well, not permanently.

Ceres

Ceres continued to stare as Clive explained what was happening to the town. He said people with lots of money were coming to live here and to spend money. Seemingly satisfied with his answer, Ceres took the lead by grabbing Clive's hand to urge him to move faster with her.

“If they're here to spend money then that means there's work to be paid for!” Clearly Ceres hadn't the faintest idea where she was heading towards but one thing was for certain. If Clive hadn't been holding her hand, Ceres would have more or less crashed into a man with a rather large bundle of long bread. However the man held the most soured and indignant face as if Ceres had spat on his shoe. He then waved his arm in the most exaggerated and flashy way and pointed at Ceres as he spoke aloud in a rage.

“I am Bard, the rhyming man! A wizard cursed me in Noram! This vile girl has squished my bread, so now I want her fucking head!”

Clive

Crack

The man went tumbling backwards before Clive had a chance to react. Agrippa, rubbing her knuckles, nodded self-satisfactorily. When she saw the paladin's look of disappointment, however, she got defensive.

"What?" she snapped. "He was a threat, so I fucked him up."

Clive sighed.

"We could have solved this issue diplomatically. Unlike the guards, this man was unarmed. Haven't we caused trouble enough?"

He patted Ceres on the head, then knelt down to check the man's pulse.
