Quill took a moment to look the child up and down before asking, "And who the hell are you?"
"Miyagawa, a traveler who's very lost," he answered.
Empty Overture wrote:Empty turned towards the new voice. Could she be the leader? Definitely not what I expected. he thought with a slight grin. He forced himself to stop smiling, and stood in uniformity with the rest of the recruits.
Quillbell wrote:Quill spotted the momentary smile. She walked over and stared straight into Empty's face, eyes hard.
"Something funny, recruit?"
Quillbell wrote:Quill's eyes narrowed. Another time traveler? He doesn't seem very dangerous, but I've got to deal with him somehow. Looking around, she spotted Necro off to the side and called out to him.
"Hey, Necro. Could you deal with this for me? We've got another traveler on our hands, and I've got recruits to kick into shape."
Empty Overture wrote:"Not one bit. Today's just a good day, is all." Empty replied, sounding more serious than he has been. "If there was something funny, I'd be sure to share it with the others, ma'am." he said, unblinking.
Necro cast an exasperated gaze at the Commander. So now I'm just a babysitter for this kid? Well, the Commander knows best. It's not like I could convince her to deal with this herself. And she does have the other recruits. He motioned to the child. "Hey, you. Yes, you, of the feline persuasion. Get over here. You're coming with me."
Quillbell wrote:Quill smiled. It wasn't a nice smile.
"See, that's where you're wrong, recruit. Today is most definitely not a good day. In fact, it is a very bad day. And you know why? Because it's your very first day of training, that's why." Still talking, she resumed her pacing.
"By this time tomorrow, you're going to be aching in places you didn't even know you had. This will be a learning experience for every single Goddamn one of you. You either learn, or you get left behind. Am I clear?!"
vampko wrote:Well this works out.. He made his way over to the man, "where are we going?"
Necro frowned and motioned for the child to follow him. "We're going to my office. But on the way there, let's walk and talk." He started the trek to his office, not even bothering to look if he was being followed. "The Commander is a very cautious young lady. We've had some incidents with travelers in recent times and we aren't taking any chances with you. Also, if you are from someplace far, far away, you probably aren't aware that your cat ears could be a problem. You see, the Ethrelian Emperor has a set of them as well. They're kind of a symbol of the decadence and corruption in this country. If you have a hat or something, I'd advise using it to cover them up."

Just then Zeke had a nagging feeling; something was peculiar about that man that had just passed by him.
That is preposterous. It was probably just a trick of the mind.
