A Straight Wizard and a Gay Fighter Walk Into A Bar...

Post by Axton on Tue Sep 06, 2016 8:19 pm

He was done for. This was where Kassandros Asker died. Alone on the road, being attacked by a group of bandits who he should have no trouble taking down. He gripped the sword tighter in his hands, the blood soaking into the pommel's leather. He gritted his teeth, digging his feet into the ground and readying himself for the final blows.

Thinking back on it, Kassandros knows he should have never let this happen. He had let his guard down for just a few moments, dozing off as his horse guided him along the road. His last mission had been quite the horrible encounter and he was just so tired, shutting his eyes for a few moments had been a mistake, however.

If there was ever a time to use his magic, it was now. But even then, he wasn't sure it would be enough...

Narcissus wasn't sure what he really expected when he saw the brigands strike on this poor, poor cute boy, but he certainly didn't want to let anything happen to someone so handsome. It doesn't take much time for him to decide to step in, but he does right away. He tugs his helmet on, hair bundled tight against his head, and dashes forward, unsheathing his rapier. He stands between the man and the inept warrior and catches the sword with a grin in the gap of his helm.

The attacker's eyes widen and his troop stumbles back at the sight of Narcissus, stumbling himself only moments later. Narcissus immediately does a spiral cut and the man screams out in pain, left laying on the ground with the thin sword at his throat. Narcissus says nothing, only smiles behind the helm, and the company flees. He sheathes the sword and stares the man on the ground down, who skitters away.

Alive. He was still alive. Kassandros looked up at the tall, incredibly tall person before him. Their gender was a mystery at this point but given their wisty nature the way they held themselves, he had half a notion it was a woman. If he was lucky it would be a woman. For some reason (for some reason) he always attracted gay men.

Letting his sword clang to the ground he took a deep breath and slicked back his thick, curly hair which was smeared with blood.

"Thank you," he says finally, with a loud sigh. "I was in way over my head."

He holds out his hand to shake.

Narcissus pulls off his helmet and his hair flies out, tumbling all the way down to his hips, fluffy pink curls fluttering down. He smiles warmly, widely, and shakes the man's hand--a tight grip one would likely not expect from one with his looks. His voice would certainly clear up any confusion--it's certainly not the deepest, but it is indeed deeper than a woman's.

"Certainly. I couldn't let a poor traveller be harmed near my oracle's temple. Though," He eyes him over a little bit, and smirks lightly, looking down at the man idly. Awfully cute. "I would stay a little more aware as you travel the paths here."

"Well, I..." he flushes red, horribly embarrassed. "I know. It has been a long travel from where I've come from."

Kassandros surveys his body for wounds and is lucky enough to have survived without any wound too grave. The one from his head was bleeding copiously but that was to be expected. He tears a piece from his already wrecked shirt and ties it around his forehead in a makeshift bandage. Then, he tears away the rest of his now useless shirt and digs in the saddle bags of his horse for a fresh one.

As he pulls on a clean shirt the says, "I'm Kassandros Asker, I was coming here for the job as a guard for an oracle, might it be the one you mentioned?"

Narcissus shifts his weight and smirks a little bit deeper at the man's clear embarrassment, enjoying it quite a bit.

"I see. So you're the mercenary the Father has hired." He notes, surveying him. "Well then, I can escort you to the temple. The oracle will likely be glad to heal you as well, she's very kind. I am her guardian, Narcissus Aethelius." He bows rather informally, flipping his hair almost completely on purpose. He mourns the loss of the sight of the man's chest as he pulls the shirt back on.

"I am not a mercenary," he corrects him pointedly. "I'm just in need of money at the moment."

And a reason to get as far away from this country as possible at the moment. But Narcissus didn't need to know that.

"Regardless, I would be honored to accompany you and your oracle on your journey," he says, in a way he hopes it somewhat gracious.

The slightly bitter smile fades a little; at least it won't be some mercenary coming along, and instead a rather cute man. Though he did have to worry about his competency as a warrior, given how easily he was overwhelmed. But he keeps it to himself.

"Well. I'm grateful to have you along, the roads, as you can see, are getting much worse lately." He admits, pursing his lips together in thought. "The Father decided she should be with further escortment than her usual guard detail."

"Yes, well, I usually don't snooze off on the job, but..." he coughs, looking away. "I promise you I am a competent warrior."

He studies the man next to him; he's beautiful, tall and gorgeous. If he were not straight, he might be horribly into it, but alas, he's into women. Though the man next to him does look quite feminine...

"I hope so. I'd hate for any of us to get hurt, frankly. The oracle is a very important person to myself and all our city both." It sounds a little like a threat. It is a little bit, he thinks idly, cradling his helm at his side. He'll see how Astra feels, and decide then whether or not he can be anything but curt to the other man. No matter how handsome he is.

The priest is waiting outside the temple and greets them both cordially, bowing in a formal fashion to the newcomer.

"It is good you've arrived so promptly, sir. The oracle is currently occupied, but if you've any questions I can answer them for you." The young priest states, as he eyes Narcissus warily as ever. They never did get along.

Kassandros bowed slightly as well. It felt a bit stiff and unpracticed; he had never spent a whole lot of time at temples or the like since he was a kid and it felt awkward to be doing these thing as an adult.

"It's my pleasure," he says politely. "I just want to confirm the information I've already been given. How long is the journey to be, how much am I to be paid, the like."

He doesn't miss for one second that the priest and Narcissus seemed to have some sort of issue. But that would have to wait for a different time.

Narcissus smirks at the other man and pushes past him, muttering a false apology as he heads into the temple to meet the oracle without a care. He is the only one with that kind of privilege, anyhow, so exercising it is normal to him. He heads up to her quarters and knocks once, twice, then comes in all the same. She rises from a kneeling position and tackles him with a hug and a grin and cocks her head a little, draped over the the much taller man.

"You're back! Is the escort here?" She asks, smile unfazed.

"Yes, he's downstairs, getting acquanted with Etwald." He smirks a little and gently pulls her off of him. He towers over her quite neatly, too. "Are you prepared?"

"Yes, only getting my seals together. Only a moment more."

"Well," the priest starts, crossing his arms over his chest. "The journey is of varied length. Some years it lasts for six months or a little more, others only a month. You will be paid over 4,000 gold at the end, with a 1,000 to start. The bonus is for supplies, but use it as you will." The father folds a pouch into his hands.

"Thank you," Kassandros says graciously. "I will use it for supplies, indeed."

Four thousand is enough, more than enough, for what he needs it for. He sighs softly and steels himself. No matter what, no matter what happens, he'll see this through to the end. Not because it's for the good of the world, not because it's his duty, but because he needs this money for something deeply personal.

"How soon do we depart?"

"As soon as the oracle is ready. Your... companion has gone to see her, so it should likely be soon." He clearly turns his nose up at the mention of the guard, but folds his hands over.

The girl gathers a light satchel and thrusts it upon Narcissus and he chuckles, swinging it over his shoulder.

"Prepared?" He asks again, hand on his hip. She can be awfully indecisive, for a prophet.

"Yes! Let us meet him. Is he handsome?" She grins, and nudges him as she heads to the stairwell.

"Quite." He smirks deeply and pats her back to move her a little faster.

The pair exit the temple and she gives the scarred man a deep bow, her arms flat at her sides.

"Hello, sir. I am Astra Raune, oracle of this temple of Leona. I am under your protection for this journey." She says, tone cordial, and both Etwald and Narcissus, knowimg better than to trust how she behaves at first meeting, smirk, meet eyes, then frown.

He bows to her, smiling at her demeanor. She seemed polite and well behaved; this journey would be simple after all, at least he could hope.

"I am Kassandros Asker, it is a pleasure to meet you," he says. "With me by your side, you have nothing to fear."

"How confident!" She giggles, adjusting the staff in her hands and rolling her shoulders. "We shall fetch Narcissus's horse and head for the port in River's End." She looks to him, clearly expecting to ride along with him.

Narcissus smirks a little bit and heads for the stable near the temple. He returns moments later riding a clearly bored black mare. She hops onto her with ease and wraps her arms tight around the pink haired man's waist.

"Shall we, sir Asker?" She asks, smiling over to him.

"Yes," he says, mounting his own horse. She looked as if being attacked by bandits earlier was no big deal, but that didn't surprise him; she had never been one to spook easy. "But, please, do call me Kassandros."

His surname was not one he was particularly proud of.

"Kassandros. Awfully long name, that." She giggles.

"How about... Kassy." Narcissus suggests, eying the other man as he pats his horse to start moving forward. "Much too long a trip to be so formal, don't you think, Astra?"

The girl laughs, and nods firmly. "Kassy it is."

"What? No--" he starts to protest but by the time he has it out they've already decided. Oh Gods. This was't going to be as easy as he first suspected, was it? What had he gotten himself into?

"...Kassy it is," he mumbles, glaring at Narcissus.

"Perfect. Now, allow me to lead the way, my dear Kassy." Narcissus flashes him his perfect smile, and that isn't a brag. Simply the truth. Astra mimicks it as they ride forward and show the way. "We may stop into the center of town if you would like to stock up, but we shall set camp when the sun is set."

"I can also heal you when we've stopped. You seem a little beat up." Astra notes.

"I'm not..." he groans, wiping some more blood from his face. "...thank you, Lady Raune."

Kassandros is really beginning to think this isn't going to be as easy as he initially thought. His first indicator should have been Narcissus but he had had high hopes.

"So, you decide. We can head out for good and heal then, or go to the marketplace." Narcissus offers idly. Personally, he'd already had his saddlebags packed and would rather get things moving, but he did imagine a visit from the oracle and guard would lighten the spirits of the town upon their departure. "And I doubt Astra has an opinion on things." She tugs his hair.

Kassandros shrugs lightly.

"I'm fine, it's just a scratch," he says, despite the blood beginning to pour from the wound on his head. "Shouldn't Lady Raune be the one making the decisions here? She's the one going on this pilgrimage, after all."

Narcissus stares over at him, lifting a brow.

"She's never been a decisive one." He shrugs, and she frowns and tugs his hair again.

"Fine! I will decide. We will rent a room in the inn! His wound looks much too bad to do any less." She decides firmly, smacking Narcissus's shoulder to prove her point. He grunts a little, clears his throat, and shakes his head.

"Fine."

"Fine!"

Gods. What had he gotten into, he thinks bleakly.

"As you wish," he says quietly, hoping not to get dragged into that mess.
