Quill stands, and while everyones is talking, he jumps off the cart and runs up front to stop the horses. The horses neigh in complaint and almost squashes the short elf.
Quill has to take out Arrowhead. The scorpion hisses and the horses back off instinctively. "Good boy," Quill coos to the tiny deadly creature.
"Oh my God, no pets mean no pets," Gwen says. The group was all outside the cart now, and Gwen was eyeing Quill disapprovingly.
(Oh my gosh, I can't believe I wasted away Faber's turn last time, sorry about that folks)
Faber is sitting on a sofa chair stiffly, and at the edge. They make sure to be on the one that was closest to the door, in case they needed to make a quick escape.
Rita seems to notice Faber's cautiousness, but she doesn't say anything about it. "What exactly are we doing here?" Faber asks the blue haired witch lady. Rita was out of that ridiculous older lady form, and she looked to be about in her 20s. "I'm just gonna do a simple spying trick to see where your teammates are. You'll love it! It's a classic- I have a crystal ball and everything," Rita says with a clap of her hand.
"What if.. I don't want teammates?" Faber asks huffily. Rita pokes Faber on the nose, which makes Faber hold up their fists defensively. She was all the way across the room! How did she- "Silly dear! I foresaw you with teammates, so it's not a matter of whether you want them or not, it'll happen regardless!" Rita says.
(I started a trend :0 everyone has backstory solo roleplays now, hehe)
Gwen is the oldest of the group, already an adult. No way would she allow another deadly animal to accompany them. Quill gives her hard stare a hard stare of his own, though. "Do you really think you can stop me from bringing Arrowhead?" Quill asks Gwen with a raised eyebrow.
Gwen actually doesn't know the answer. Quill is a ruthless mercenary and scholar, he had skills in both fighting, strategy, and logistics. Gwen had training as well though, and her family was renowned in crafting and weaponry. "You know what? We're not gonna fight right now. How about we just find the inn?" Gwen says with crossed arms. Tensions were high.
"Leave it to me!" Arwyn says cheerfully, a juxtaposition of the serious tone present only a moment before. "Y'all hide the cart and I'll go see if the inn will have us, and see if any markets are open," Arwyn says with a wink at Ma'Tonzi. She skips off.
Jord, Quill, and Gwen all got to work on leading the horses, and subsequently the cart, off to a side road. They wouldn't be needing it anymore, the path of the forest said to house the wizard wasn't wide enough to travel by carriage.
(Skipping Jord, Quill and, Ma'Tonzi's part because they're all the same. They got the horses in the back-)
Faber nods. What was it their dad said? In case of witches, just smile and nod and hope they don't curse you. Something like that. At the thought of their dad, Faber, shivered involuntarily. He hated everything, he could've been wrong about witches too.
"Will this crystal ball help me find the wizard?" Faber asks Rita. They want to first address that matter before thinking about how and when she would ditch whatever teammates this crazy lady was trying to push on Faber.
Rita shakes her head no. "I'll be helping you find the wizard, of course. The crystal ball is for finding that team of yours. Might have to crack out the ol portal," Rita says as she sets up the coffee table in front of Faber with her crystal ball and some tarot cards.
Arwyn asks villager after villager, but when she finally reaches the inn, she's extremely surprised to find that it's smoldering and not much was left of it except the foundations and the walls, which could crumble to dust at any second.
"What happened here?" She asks the first person in close proximity, a green haired guy. "Some psycho set the door on fire, and everything else got caught in it," he answers. Arwyn nodded, though she was frowning.
What would they do now? Her team was counting on her! She needed to find a place to sleep and fast... everyone was already so tired. How could Arwyn let this happen? She wasn't a kid anymore, she really needed to grow up and start acting more responsible. She bet everything she had on this inn, and now, against all odds, the plan was literally up in flames. She should've had backup plans .. but she didn't. What a failure! What a mistake!
She digs into her bookbag and takes out Oasis to comfort her. The green haired guy's eyes widen and he backs away, muttering something about "girls of this century" and "crazy".
