THE ROLEPLAY ~Adventure Awaits (!Closed!)
"Well, I have this piece of his mane if that would help," she said handing Rachel the hair. "Would this be enough?"
Wallace headed to shore and looked at the map, "We'll follow the shore until we get to the canal. Once we cross that we'll head southeast to Fredinand, it looks like that's the closest settlement." He said, already making his way down the shore.
Echo walked quickly to catch up to Wallace, tripping over her feet as she did so and falling on her face in the sand. She pushed herself up, spitting sand out of her mouth and falling into pace with Wallace. Her face was bright red, but she played it off as if nothing had happened.
"So, for this thing we're after. Are we just heading in blindly, or do you have any plans in that big head of yours?" She asked, tapping him on the forehead.
All went well. In fact, Kanesnya had already crossed Luckdin River. The map must have hade it's scaling off. She had been walking for a few hours when a zebra came out from behind a tree. "Wha....?" Kanesnya questioned. Quick as a wink, she had pulled her cloak over it. "Come on, let's get you back to wherever you came from, " she said, shifting her direction to head towards the direction that the zebra darted from. It may have been her family's stone making her nieve, but something told her that wherever it came from was a good place.
"Yes that should be perfect." Rachel said as she slid off and grabbed the peice of mane. She then held the mane infront of river. "River track." River sniffed the mane, sniffed at the ground for a bit before running I a direction. Rachel went running after her.
((Ok, I'm back. Just need someone to fill me in so I can interact))
(( We missed you! Okay, basically in a nutshell, the villain characters are plotting. Cody and Magick were hanging out when Magick's zebra went missing. Rachel is helping to find it. Mango's character (I forgot how to spell it) has stumbled across the Zebra. Wallace and Echo are headed out to complete a contract. You can easily slip into any of these situations ^^ ))
"If you wanted to play in the sand for a while, all you had to do was say so." Wallace said with a smug grin. "We'll head into town and see what people are saying, try to figure out where it's nest is and what exactly we're dealing with. From there, we just have to track it down and take it out."
Echo turned redder at Wallace's remark. She tried to think up a witty remark, but wasn't as skilled with that as Wallace was. She knew she'd end up sounding more like a dork.
"Okay. Whatever you say, chief." She said with a sigh, kicking a small rock with her toe as they continued to walk.
"Cheif? Why are we calling him chief?" Apen asked, tilting his head.
"Because he's in charge, technically." Echo replied.
Apen squawked, looking at Wallace. "You know I'd make a much better person-in-charge than you." He said with a chirp.
Echo flicked him in the forehead. "Be quiet, Apen."
Wallace looked Apen straight in the eyes, still smiling, and said "Pretty sure you'd make a better meal than a leader. Certainly fatty enough." He turned and kept walking, "Then again, I'm not a huge fan of junk food."
Echo covered her mouth with her hand, hiding her laughter from Apen. The bird glared at Wallace, then flew off of Echo's shoulder and continued to fly in front of the duo.
Echo kept glancing around. She wasn't positive what they were looking for, but knew she needed to stay alert. Hopefully it wouldn't take long for them to find and complete this job.
Magik ran trying to keep up with River. She weaved herself through multiple trees and stopped when she almost ran into another person. The girl had pointy ears, like Cody, but she had facial features. She gave the girl a strange look. "What are you doing wandering the forest?"
Ayame was normally up by dawn, but today was an exception. The night prior was beautiful, a meteor shower passing by and other cosmic spectacles occurring as well, which was why she had taken the time to climb up the Agnor mountains to camp out for the night. It wasn’t until late into the night, she had decided to rest, which was why she woke late today.
The elf yawned, blinking open her eyes. The sun was already up and shining brightly.
Darn, maybe I should’ve slept earlier, She thought. But it was worth it.
She packed her sleeping bag, which she had slept in for the night. Now, it was time to head home. But, little did she know, she was in for more of an adventure than expected.
The Aveneri flashed her way down the mountain, making few stops to rest. As part of an aerokinetic race, she was capable of manipulating the air around her to an extent, but she prefered the thrill of teleportation. Ayame skidded to a stop at the base of the mountains. The woods were still dark from her perspective, the canopy shading the routes through from the day’s sunshine. And the darkness was ought to make her grow sleepy, for she appeared to have not catched up entirely on her sleep.
Seeing no better option, Ayame teleported up, landing on a high branch of a tree. From there, she leapt from branch to branch, crossing the woods quickly with a mix of jumps and teleportations. It wasn’t before long that she arrived at the other end of the woods to see the sea glimmering gloriously before her.
The elf recognized the land edge she had arrived at. In the west, at the Cradle Harbor. She crossed the river and headed to the port, where she expected there to be some sort of shop which she could rest at and fill her stomach.
As she arrived at the port, she saw two adventurous looking people heading off from the port, one holding a map in his hands. Curiosity picked at her.
It’s not often I bump into another adventurous soul, not to mention two. She thought. But I guess it’s because I never really left home that much until now.
She flashed so she appeared right before them and waved. “Hiya! Are you guys adventurers? Where are you heading?”
((Figured I can get Wallace going with the name calling streak :p))
Wallace had his eyes on the map when Ayame flashed in front of them. He looked up from the map and heard her ask if they were adventurers. Huh. How long's this kid been there? He thought. And why is she asking if we're adventurers, do we have a fan? Suddenly feeling the urge to show off, he unsheathed his sword and rested it on his shoulders. "Adventurers? We aren't just adventurers- we're heroes, here on a mission to save this land from the monsters that are attacking it. And who are you kid? Are you gonna be an adventurer too when you grow up?" He asked, one hand triumphantly on his hip. He started thinking to himself again- Is it really surprising kids like this look up to us? Who doesn't want to grow up to be a hero? I'll bet she's about to ask how many monsters we've fought, or maybe for an autograph...
Echo waved at Ayame when she appeared. She was going to speak to her, before Wallace began to talk the poor girl's ears off. Echo turned red. She knew that this wasn't a "kid" as Wallace thought, but an elf of some sort. She glanced at Wallace. He seemed to be lost in thought, a somewhat smug look on his face. She rolled her eyes, then smiled at Ayame.
"I'm Echo. Wallace here is my partner. Well, technically I'm his sidekick." She laughed lightly. "Somebody has to be around him to keep him on track." She stuck her hand out shyly, to shake Ayame's hand. "Pleasure to meet you."
River stopped, there was a girl. River stiffened around the girl before deciding she had the zebra.
"Wait! River don't......" Rachel started to say. To late, river barked a little, then stopped.
Rachel hopped off of river, and noticed a certain neon zebra. "Hi, we are looking for her, neon zebra. I think you have the one right there." Rachel said.
((He looks like this
((Is confuzzled. Are our chars supposed to know each other? I saw you use char saw Ayame as if your char knew Ayame. Do they?))
(( I don't believe so, unless Shata had a different idea? I was just having Echo say hello ^^ ))
((Sorry, I just used her name because it seemed like a better description, Wallace doesn't know her name, though.))
"I'm Kanesnya. I'm in the woods because...well, I ran away. But that doesn't matter. I need help." Kanesnya looked down at the scraps of leather on her hands. They wouldn't hold for much longer. "I need help fast." Trying to change the subject, she blurted out, "How do you see me? I...mean...so, this is your zebra?"
(@Zuski(Sky and Ocean) How does Cody eat?)
"Yes I'm missing a zebra! Is that him?! I miss him so much! And I really need to get back to Cody, he's probably already done with lunch." She said to the girl. And what did she really mean by, how do you see me?
Kanesnya looked over at the pink haired girl. "Who's Cody?" she asked, wide-eyed, "Can he help me?"
Kanesnya nudged the zebra over to the girls. "Bye, bud. I had a nice time with you."
Whowaka came toting over and Magik greeted by hugging him and ruffleing up his mane, "I don't know what you need help with, but I can bring you to Cody anyways." She said to the girl. Then she stood up and looked over at Rachel. "Bye, thanks for your help."
"What did you mean when you said, you can see me?" Rachel asked. "I can see you as clear as I can see her." Rachel jerked her head in the general direction of Magik. "You've got blue/grey skin. Brown eyes. Pointed ears. And black hair."
River sniffed Whowaka.
"Oh." Kanesnya sighed. "Just...nevermind."
Kanesnya watched the girls say goodbye. Before the other girl could leave, Kanesnya stubed her toe. Ilk shin is delicate. a single scratch can cause a lot of pain. She screamed and paniced. "Don't let the blood touch my skin! Ahhhh!" After the earlier incident, she wasn't about to let anything stop her. She kicked, trying to close the wound with her robe. There was no way that it would work, but anything was worth reaching her goal.
She saw it, the Village of Nel. If she stole something important enough, maybe Deamon would take her into notice, or at least treat her better. She landed at the edge of the village, where no one would see her. She tried to hide her wings as well as she could but that didn't work very well, considering that she was wearing a tightish dress that had no hood of anything, not even a cape. Her purple ears that stuck put of her hair would also be another give away. Her wings and her ears were one of the reasons she didn't live in a village. People would always make fun of her, making her mother move them to a deserted forest that no one visited. Until Deamon came and treated her family. He let them live on one condition, that she would join him. Of course she accepted, she would do anything to protect them. At that led her up to what she was doing now, stealing from villages, making people suffer.
She, unpreparedly, walked into the village. Lots of people gave her weird looks, but she continued her walk. She looked around, looking for the house that looked the most fancy. Then she spotted one. A giant, towering house with gold timings that outlined a brick inside. It also had plastic flamingos outside that were all wearing hats. The house looked really fancy compared to some of the kids who were wearing rags on the streets. It made her sad, but she needed to keep focus on her job. To steal something important.
It was fairy easy to get into the house, for they left the back door open, unlocked. She walked inside a looked around. No one was inside. She walked up the circling staircase that was near the entrance and made it to the second floor. The upsides was just as fancy as the downstairs, it had fine China in glass cases. Then she came to a room that stuck out to her. She didn't know why but it compled her to it. She opened the door, and the room was overflowing with gems and riches.
"Oh my gosh!" Magik turned and faced the girl. "I'm going to bring you to Cody, just wait." She reached out and grabbed the girl's arm and teleported near Cody, with girl with her. "Cody! I need your help!"
"Oh come on, they left us!" Rachel said. She Jumped up on River and took off towards their camp. Soon reaching it.
A blue light came from Kanesnya's toe. She wilted. Now everyone would know. Kanesnya realized that she was being held. "So now you know," she squeaked out weakly, "It's no use now..." There was no way that whoever these strange people were would help a freak like her. She tried to hide her face in shame. "I shouldn't have left home."
Echo smiled at Ayame, after the girl somewhat confusedly shook her hand. Echo reddened more, not to her delight, after Ayame said some things about Wallace. I need to get control of myself. She thought, scratching the back of her head. Even if she was only slightly embarrassed, by herself or for other people, she turned a dark shade of red all over her face.
She took a deep breath. "Well, I don't see why you can't tag along, and maybe help me keep him under control." Echo said, nudging Wallace's ribs with her elbow. "At least until we get you back to your home." Echo turned to Wallace, crossing her arms. "Unless you have any objections, Wallace?"
"Keep me under control?" All intentions of appearing heroic had vanished, he sheathed his sword and approached Ayame with his hands on his hips. "Not sure how you plan on doing that, but you're free to tag along if you want, kid. You'll fit right in with the loudmouth bird.", he told her. "Right now we're headed to Fredinand, let's keep moving."
Puca moved swiftly down the street. Those rich chumps will be running for days he thought, snickering to himself. He had chased them from their home, disguised as a terrible monster. Free food and as much cash as I can carry, here I come! As he approached the house again, he noticed a strange woman entering through the open door. He moved inside the house behind her, and made himself appear human, like a pretty average nobleman with black hair and yellow eyes. He walked into the room she was in, "And just what do you think you're doing in my house?" He asked her.
Echo smiled at Ayame, but soon her face flushed even more. The elf cocked her head slightly unsure why the girl looked so flustered. Did she said something wrong? Maybe she went too far. Perhaps human feelings were more delicate than she thought they were.
But, the girl answered anyway, “Well, I don't see why you can't tag along, and maybe help me keep him under control. At least until we get you back to your home.”
Echo then turned to Wallace, crossing her arms. “Unless you have any objections, Wallace?”
Ayame kept a smile on, awaiting what the supposed hero had to say.
“Keep me under control?” The male’s earlier attitude vanished, replaced with a more serious tone as he advanced on her. “Not sure how you plan on doing that, but you're free to tag along if you want, kid. You'll fit right in with the loudmouth bird. Right now we're headed to Fredinand, let's keep moving.”
The elf felt a stab of annoyance at the boy’s words, but stayed cool headed. “Got it, hero.”
She nodded, walking next to Echo, rather than Wallace. “At least you have more company than just that hero roleplayer now. I’m glad to keep you company.”
After a few moments, she queried. “Hey, well, what kinda monsters do you fight?”
Kinkaloo spun around around to see a boutique with black hair a yellow eyes. "What are you doing in my home?" He asked.
Kinkaloo didn't know how what to say. "I'm so sorry, I didn't know that this was your house," she said. Then tears filled her eyes as she relised that she'd be going to jail. Deamon didn't even know that see went out! She'd be stuck in jail forever! She fell to the floor and burst into tears.
"Cody!" She shouted in his ear.
Echo nodded to Wallace, and they continued walking. She turned her head to Ayame as the elf asked a question. Echo smiled. "Oh, all sorts. Whatever kind is causing trouble, we'll come to fix it."
Apen, still flying in front of them, squawked loudly. "Most of the time they win, unless they do something stupid. Which also happens a lot, but sometimes, the stupid things they do end up helping them. Somehow." He squawked loudly again.
Echo rolled her eyes. "Oh, and that's Apen. He's our rude, snarky, feathered companion. Don't let anything he says get to you. Half the time he has no idea what he's talking about."
With her eyes still closed, Kanesnya heard a voice asking a question. "I'm Kanesnya," she answered
(I'm sorry for the shortness)
