"Well you've got my new stuff to work on for the toime being. I'll let ya know if there's anything else I need." Gabbie replied with a shrug. She entertained the idea of persuading others within the group to get some equipment from Raquel and have Connor tinker with it to improve the design, but Veronika just didn't look right in gauntlets and greaves ... neither did Nadya.
Reign and Pink Employer
"Heheh," Reign chuckled at Faatina's comment. "Well you're welcome. Honestly it's the least I can do after underestimating the ... situation ..." Right then, off to see that annoying physician. He wasn't far behind her ... and Raquel was still out cold ....
"To be fair, your situation is slightly more pressing than ours ..." Filat admitted. "Umm, are you hurt or is that just post healing?" he asked, obviously still concerned about the wound.
Bogdan meanwhile stood up from his chair and put both of his hands down on the table before asking "How soon can you people be back on your feet? We've seem to have drawn the wrong sort of attention, ourselves ..."
"So," the man began in a disinterested tone as he glanced at Gytha. "Don't keep me in suspense; what happened? They receive any treatment thus far or am I on the clock, here?"

"I'm making pretty good progress on that by the way, might even be done tomorrow," Connor offered to Gabbie, his face brightening up a bit.
"I was healed, I'll be fine. Thank you for your concern," she said to Filat, not sure how true that was. She'd live, but she doubted she could fight right now if pressed.
"We might need at least a day to heal- the cultists are all down but we took our fair share of wounds in the process, including Raquel. What's the situation?" she asked Bogdan, biting her lip.

'Did we really take that long to come here?' Faatina wondered, though not really letting it bother her, as she stepped inside.

"Weeell ..." Filat drifted off with his own speculation leaving Bogdan to answer the question. "It would seem that the Dark Utka's cargo was more valuable to the rebel faction than we first realized. They have people in every port along the smuggling route to check on the cargo and ensure they are kept up to date."
Filat quickly contributed now that the part relevant to him had come up. "We're holding the one that came to check on the Utka in the brig. We learned all of this from him, though we had to beat it out of him. We've got no choice but to take the western route back to Neviskotia, but they might still head us off before then if they have any ships in the area. The captain wanted to know what kind of shape you people were in, because it might be best for you to find another ship ... otherwise you could wind up getting caught up in our problems ...."
"That's good, though we've gotta do a fitting just to be sure." Gabbie replied. "Also, I'm bored so since I've got nothing else to do, I'll watch whoile you work~"
Infirmary of ... Infirmation?
"Well, I'm not sure if anyone did this already, but it'd be a good idea to check them for any other injuries the healers might have missed." The man stood up as he explained and handed Gytha a vulnerary. "You can't count on healing magic to deal with all of the pain, so if they wake up crying, we'll give them a painkiller or two to shut them up."
Faatina stepped inside, but she didn't appear to have anyone with her at first. Was she a patient, or was the good physician getting some assistance? Probably the former. "Evening. Injured?" Reign appeared behind her with Raquel and he sighed when he noticed. "For crying out loud, your pink haired leader's hurt too? Get the girl a riot shield or something ..."

"My leg was broken during combat... it was looked at, but it's always best to get a second look... when you have a minute, could you?"

<Not what I'd call the correct way to do it, but it at least woke him up, if in an unpleasant way.> He thought.

They already found us? I must have underestimated the rebel presence out here. Veronika thought with alarm before returning back to the conversation.
"Wouldn't the western route lead us into Ursian waters? That would present its own problems I think. Regardless, I would prefer we stay on the Leverager- your problems have become our problems and searching for another ship from here could take longer than we can afford. I can't speak for everyone though...when were you planning to leave port?" she asked Bogdan and Filat.
"Works for me," he said to Gabbie with a smile, as he returned to tinkering with her set of gauntlets for the time being.

"We will be cutting it pretty close with the repairs, but tomorrow evening if all goes as planned." Bogdan answered.
"Honestly, we don't want to head straight into Ursian controlled waters with the kind of cargo we're hauling, but our chances are better ... somewhat. At least they're not looking for us. Taking the eastern route gives them so many flanking opportunities, it's not even funny. We could find some imperial ships and transfer our cargo ... that would ensure their safety, buuut the rebels would still attack us if they found us. Also ... it's not a good idea to trust the navy to actually pay us when they could just 'confiscate our contraband' instead ... if you know what I mean." explained Filat a little gloomily. "Always better to negotiate on land ..." he added, alluding to their original plan.
The man smiled, on the verge of laughter as Gytha sent Valter into a coughing fit. "You can apply that to the skin if that's where the injury is, otherwise wait til their awake before making them drink, heheheheh." He then turned his attention toward Faatina, who spoke of a recently broken leg. "I take it the bone has been mended, still you should stay off of it for at least one night. It'll help with the pain, too. Give your body a chance to adjust."
