  1. Trey had hardly more than a moment to react before his bags had been taken by the crew as they flooded onto the boat. He simply went with it and disembarked alongside the others without a word. It made no difference whether he carried his things or they did, as long as he got them back in one piece. The welcoming party was a bit of a surprise to him, but he figured it made sense that they would get a hero's welcome. He believed the day when he would be regarded as anything more than a street thug would be the day Hell froze over, and this day must've been cold one for sure. For a moment it all seemed so unreal to him, as though he was in a lucid dream. He took note of the way he and Ren had been eyed by Rahab. If she was at all concerned that they may have been biased in favor of men, those concerns were unfounded. He could speak for both of them in terms of their respect for fighting women. Much as he had no desire to associate with them, the female fighters of the underground scene certainly had his respect for how vicious they could be, and training with the lone female student of Tiandi had only served to further elevate his opinion of the opposite sex. And that realization seemed set in when Rahab saw the aforementioned Kotori. Thoughts about the illegal street scene he originally came up in flashed through Trey's mind, and he briefly reflected on how far he'd come since then, and how much further he could go. He was brought back to attention promptly as Raveena stepped forward to greet them. Her acknowledgment of their progress was an honor for him, though he knew the road ahead still stretched on for several miles, and it would a while yet before he reached that road's end. The journey so far had proven to be worth the struggle, and he had no intentions of abandoning it now. He followed along with the group into the carriage that awaited them, melting back comfortably into the seat. "Aw yeah, I could get used to this." This sort of luxury was certainly foreign to the Hell's Gate native, but he was enjoying every moment of it enormously. Rahab's questioning only of the women of Tiandi Wushu came as a slight annoyance. It seemed to him then that she simply wasn't approving of male warriors, but he was so amused by Kotori's reaction to being praised by their master and by Rahab kissing her to understand their school's name that he had to stifle a laugh, and quickly let it go. It seemed they would all just have to be thick-skinned with the brash royal. "That's a very unique way of learning a new language you got. Wish I coulda just done that when I was taking that foreign language class. Those pronunciations were tougher to master than any fighting technique I've learned so far, and that's sayin' something."
  2. I almost forgot. A while back, I was thinking of possible outcomes of Trey corrupting her and making her a living demon sword like his.
  3. Anytime is fine. I have some ideas relating to how Trey's imminent demonic transformation is going to play out.
  4. Trey laughed, but he couldn't shake the feeling she probably could. Her size was anything but indicative of her potential. He noticed the people gathered at the dock. "(Look at 'em all. Wonder what's got their attention...)" "(Oh yeah, packing. Probably shoulda done that first.)" He took a look at the sleeve of his hoodie and smelled it, pulling back in disgust immediately. "(On second thought, maybe changing clothes shoulda been priority number one...)" Trey just stared at her in confusion, unsure of how to respond. He wondered if this was really the same shy, quiet girl he trained with in Terrenus. She seemed almost a completely different person now, being far more talkative and outgoing. His own social skills had improved as well. Though he still remained hotheaded, vulgar and foulmouthed as ever, he wasn't as cold or hostile towards others as he once was. He warmed up considerably to the others, and came to think of them as friends he could trust rather than simply rivals to eventually be surpassed and defeated, though at that point he wouldn't admit it. He followed after Kotori back bellow deck and headed for his room. He returned just after her with two black duffel bags slung over his shoulders, one filled with as much of his wardrobe he could carry, and the other containing an old boombox and several discs filled with his favorite pirated music. He changed into a white tank top and khaki pants, and had a red bandanna tied around his head, knotted in the front. His usual industrial style chain necklace and sneakers remained unchanged. "Alright, we all packed, and I got some fresh clothes on. Let's get ready and get off this boat."
  5. Somehow, I think you'd have it better than me.
  6. Trey came up to the deck first, ready to get his feet back on solid ground. Life on the sea didn't sea didn't suit him at all. His anxiousness to return to land had far overshadowed his initial uncertainties about moving to another continent. "I always did wanna get out and see more of the world. Besides, I ain't got a bounty here!", he thought to himself. He never had any intentions of going back to Hell's Gate when his training was complete; he'd be scooped up by the police as soon as they realized he was back in town. Sticking with Tiandi was proving to be his best decision yet. He felt foolish for ever doubting that he made the right choice. Though he couldn't really say he was happy about the circumstances, he could at ;east appreciate the advantages that came with the move. "Yo, Master Ren, we there yet? I didn't wanna say nothin' but I'm goin' crazy on this damn boat. Training's nice and all, but it's all we can do out here. I know I was all gung ho before, but all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, ya know?" Trey looked out over the sea. "Kinda wish Sparky was here. It's not like I miss him, I just wanna throw hands with him. I wouldn't win, but at least it would be entertaining." He would've asked Ren to go a few rounds for the hell of it, but he didn't feel much like being thrown overboard. He knew how to swim, but he only enjoyed being wet during a shower. As for his theoretical chances against Jin, he was sure the odds still wouldn't be in his favor, as his speed and defense were still severely lacking, and no matter how much he increased his strength, it would be insufficient to cover his weaknesses. He thought it best to bring up the matter of improving those particular areas once they had settled into their new home.
  7. "Ya know, he kinda reminds of a kid that went to my old grade school. He was in the same grade as me, used to wear this dumb cape all the time and pretend he was a wizard. Real piece 'a work, just like the cursor. I doubt it's just a coincidence..." Trey's train of thought was broken by the sound of Clive taking a leak on a nearby tree. He turned to say something only to be met with the sight of him fully naked and urinating on his clothes. Whereas Erin was disgusted by it, Trey laughed heartily. "Fuckin' hell, you're killin' me cowboy!" He laughed even harder as he watched Clive wring out his underwear and put it on, and harder still when Meritio momentarily woke up and incinerated the rest of his clothes. "My sides are in orbit! I'd be sore as hell right now if I was normal." His laughing fit was abruptly ended when the ground started shaking yet again. Out of nowhere a giant approached them. It seemed barely literate and apparently took interest in Clive and Erin, as it snatched them up and began taking them away. Trey wasn't sure what she expected either him or Meritio to do about the situation, but he certainly felt the sting of being called useless in that moment. He suddenly felt like he had something to prove, but was incapable of proving it given the circumstances. He cast his gaze over the young mage. "Hey kid, I don't know if you can hear me, but I'm gonna go after 'em. I know I can't do anything yet, but if I'm lucky my curse'll wear off on the way to wherever we're going." With that, he promptly ran off after the giant, his left glowing ominously with a familiar dark energy.
