"You... don't remember?" Luc gave a note of disapproval. "Probably for the best, for now. But to the real matter, I have something to discuss with her."

"You're remarkably curious for someone who should be more concerned with trying to keep the noise down. But very well," Luc leaned in closer to whisper his next words. He didn't want Reika to hear them at all so Luc could have the advantage of surprise in the negotiations. Though there was the chance Alferis would blurt things out anyway. "A business deal." Luc drew back away.

"It's unflattering how lowly you think of me. But perhaps, you haven't had the greatest of comparisons," Luc was appalled that he had suggested something like that. But it was within the acceptable limits. "You're her bodyguard hm? Well, it's something that she would be free to tell you about afterwords, but until then I shall keep it secret. As for her conduct, well, it wasn't the worst of everyone present so there's that." Luc had seen worse in similar events, and Alferis himself wasn't a contender for person of the evening.

What is this man after?

'Good thing I stayed away from the drinks last night, else I'd be one of the poor saps with a blistering hangover...' Damian reminded himself thankfully. A small pulse in his head told him the punch must have been spiked, but that aside, it barely registered anyway.
Seeing his regular clothing was not with him, Damian figured it was likely still being held near the change rooms. Straightening his current clothing out, Damian exited the room, and entered the hallway.
'And there he is. Guess I won't need to look for him.' Damian noted, as Ixion walked down the hallway in his direction.
"Ixion." Damian called out, to get the dark druid's attention.
"I will do it. Teach me to control the Gae-Borg."
As the sunlight shone into her eyes, Aiya awoke.
"Owwwwww..." She whined out, the brightness of the morning sun sending a searing pain into her still recovering mind.
Burying her head under a blanket, she began to complain at herself.
"Nnagh! What an idiot? Why did I have so much alcohol...?" Aiya then remembered the shenanigans of the night before with Irina.
"Well, I guess I must be feeling better than Irina, at least..."

Ixion: (Damian? Huh.)
Ixion stopped and turned to face Damian. The look on his face was exceptionally calm rather than stern. He seemed almost friendly for a change.
Ixion: So you've decided to accept my offer then? Well you aren't the only one. The headmaster was able to decide for herself that she would offer her weakness at least some resistance after our little talk. With that, I've decided to bring both of you should you choose to come back to the fortress in Halton. There I will do my best to help you master the Crimson Lance, and help the aloof one gain an edge over her own condition. With any fortune, I will succeed.

"Anyway, I guess we will have to meet up somewhere. When and where do you want me? I'll assume we'll either warp or fly to the base."
"I guess I should get out of bed..." Aiya told herself, bracing for the shining barrage that awaited her sensitive irises when she removed the shielding blanket from atop her.
"Three... two... one..."
The blanket's protective shade was gone.
"Nngh...! Stupid sun... why couldn't it have been cloudy? Okay... I can do this... I just need to get used to the light, and ignore the figurative poleax digging into my skull..."

Ixion: After my meeting we will likely depart. If Stephanie is not with me when it is time to leave it would be best if one of you gathered her up.
With Rita and Cess sitting at the table, Iso was left a bit startled.
Iso: (Okay ... this can only go badly or strangely. Just stay calm.)
Posted 07 September 2010 - 05:33 PM
"Zzzzz. Mr. Nomad! Where are you! I had the worst nightmare that you were a woman! I guess I drank too much." Rita rolled off the table and fell asleep in Iso's lap.
Cess walked back over and began sipping his juice.

"Oh hello Esphyr. Jace is supposedly in his manor today, so you can go talk to him about the whole stealing business. May want to change your shirt, though I don't really care what he thinks."
Morgan woke up and furrowed her brow in frustration. What are we doing again? she thought to herself. What's the plan?

Before Luc could respond, Esphyr had interrupted and brought to Aleris' attention payment. Luc didn't care for a price--the joys of tax and military money--but paying for it could easily be seen as Luc being overeager to talk to Reika. That wasn't a good idea. "Payment? Do you really think my business so important as for it to require money? Ha, how amusing, really," Luc dug out a small purse and brought out the coins. "Maybe it is, maybe it isn't."

Iso had actually managed to get some food in his stomach before Rita and Cess had arrived, and with a possible incident about to unfold, he was satisfied with just that. Lunch or dinner couldn't be that far away could it?
Iso: Yeah, I'm ready when you are.
