@afallenheroofdestiny: In which they start an adventure… ill prepared
“It’s nice to meet you…” Judas responded, his attempt at being polite failed him and the words came off far more bitter and rude than he had intended. His mood hadn’t improved upon meeting Asbel, although, the man didn’t seem to be the argumentative type. He could only hope that he had more of a brain than the cretin individual, that Judas was now refusing to acknowledge by name out of pure anger, who had forced him into this mess.
He was a bit surprised by the bow, it seemed uncharacteristic for a lord to do. The man was higher in rank than both him and the elder, he was the one going out of his way not the other way around.
“The sooner the better,” Judas stated, ignoring the elder’s presence for the most part. While he didn’t really blame the man for the fact that he was standing there right now that didn’t mean that he hadn’t found a reason to dislike him.
He turned to head from the city, looking back to Asbel, “Where exactly are we heading?” He asked, obviously not having been given much information from his sender who only stated that the village’s people were being turned to stone.
Not being given much information aside a name and a strange history lesson about the mysterious illness, Asbel was pretty much on the same page as the younger male. A bluntly blank page of nothing. So… like any other situation, their first job was to gather information and find a lead of sorts.
"I was thinking we should head to a town with some sort of archive or with scholars who know something about illnesses or even old relics." Asbel answered the darkly dressed teen as he followed after him.
Sable Izolle was the first place that came to the reddish brunet’s thoughts. However, that same location was much too far and would mean making a trek to another continent. Aside that… those clothes… Wearing that much black in the middle of a desert would be the end of the poor guy.
"Sorry, Judas but do you happen to know any place like that not too far from here? The one I’m familiar with might take us a few weeks to get to."
