“You can’t have met de Ordic!” exclaims Jordis as Drakvar finishes retelling his tale of his last night encounter to her.
Valen and Solara are out searching for any Farksians, leaving Drakvar alone with the young Jordis. With nothing better to do, Drakvar decided to tell his young ward about Ordic.
“You waited until the end of my story before interrupting?” inquires Drakvar, surprised by Jordis’ restraint.
“Of course,” says Jordis snootily as she sticks her nose up, “It is only polite.”
Drakvar only lets out a frustrated sigh. Jordis is a person that is hard to figure out and he is still trying to get a hold on her personality. Her other protectors were much easier to figure out. He has already pegged Valen as a gruff and impolite person with a good interior while he views Solara as a proud and regal warrior.
“Hey Drakvar,” says Jordis, drawing out the words as she speaks in that voice that clearly states she wants Drakvar to do something for her, “Can you buy me a book to read? A new one please.”
“I don’t have the money to afford a new book,” points out Drakvar.
“Well, you can still get me one,” replies Jordis with a pout.
With no good reason not to, Drakvar decides to give in to Jordis’ request.
“As you wish Jordis,” says Drakvar as he walks towards the door, patting Jordis on the head as he does so, “Don’t get into any trouble while I am away.”
“Hey!” protests Jordis, her hands going to her head after the pat.
With so many people out in the day, Drakvar is careful to avoid the crowds. He has no desire to run into someone that knew him as he won’t remember them without his memories.
The local fashions are interesting to observe. The other Kith primarily wear concealing garments of cloth with clothing of various types beneath.
After looking through the prices of a few shops, Drakvar decides to try his luck going through the rubbish in chances he’ll find a book for free.
As exits the current shop, Drakvar spots another Kith that has caught this eye. For the last seven shops, he has been consistently spotting this particular Kith hanging about from a distance.
The Kith is just under two metres tall and is concealed by a grey-black hooded cloak that covers the entirety of them.
Drakvar stares at the Kith as he catches them staring at him. As they realise that Drakvar has caught onto them, the cloaked Kith quickly looks away. Drakvar watches for a moment longer before going on his way.
He makes his way down a couple of alleys, Drakvar glances around at the stacks of abandoned goods, looking for some books. Eventually he finds a battered and worn book with purple covers.
“I got you now scum!” declares a female voice from behind Drakvar as he picks up the book from the pile of old items.
With a sigh at what will most likely be another battle, Drakvar turns around to see the cloaked Kith that has been following standing down the alley.
“Who are you?” asks Drakvar as the cloaked Kith tosses her cloak away.
The Kith looks a little younger than Drakvar and has pale light brown fur and short brown hair. Her green eyes glisten with fury as she glares at Drakvar. And rather than wear normal clothing, she is encased white armour with the main plates being gold. An emblem of a red shield with a black rim and a gold cross in the middle covers her chest plate and shoulder plates. She also has a hi-tech looking electronic headphones-headpiece around her head.
“Don’t you dare pretend you don’t know who I am!” snarls the angry girl, “We both know what you done!”
“Well, actually-” Drakvar starts in attempt to explain his memory loss to this furious Kith, but she just cuts him off.
“And, I shall destroy you!” announces the Kith girl as she aims one of her hands at Drakvar in an overly dramatic fashion.
Electricity leaps from the Kith’s hand, crackling through the air towards Drakvar. He barely sees it coming rushing towards him and raises a hand to block the electricity just in time. Not that Drakvar is worried about the electricity hurting him, but he doesn’t want it damaging his clothes or the book he just found.
The electricity disappears from existence as it makes contact with Drakvar’s flesh.
Well, good thing I was right about myself being immune to it.
“W-what?” stutters the Kith girl in shock as she takes a step back, “How is dis possible?”
Annoyed by this encounter and not wanting to have another fight so soon, Drakvar turns and starts to head down the other end of the alley.
“Bye Shocker,” says Drakvar as he wonders what the book is even about.
“Don’t ignore me!” yells the girl and Drakvar doesn’t bother looking back at her, just picking up speed.
He hears more electricity crackling through the air, but just ignores it as he hears it disappearing as it makes contact with him. He doesn’t feel anything before a brief and momentary sensation of heat.
“Come back here and fall me before me!” cries the girl as she stomps her foot in anger and Drakvar breaks into a run as he hears more electricity flying after him.
There is no way I am telling Jordis about this.
