    Rebellious Rose (Predator's Keep Inn)

    With the drinks declined Enk nodded in affirmation. "I'll be waiting here then." He said, taking a seat on one of the taller stools. Enk didn't have much to get from the room, considering he had all in his persons but a look around wouldn't be too bad. He was thinking of looking at the job board but he thought it might be better to take a look with Akiris. Besides, they still needed to turn in what they had found. It seemed like Akiris was ready to go to round up a well deserved reward. Even if it was only getting samples of water and investigating Enk hoped that what they brought would suffice. "So do they make shirt with wing sleeves, or do you get your clothes special tailored?" Enk asked, out of curiosity. He really was just trying to strike a bit of conversation while waiting for Akiris, but learning about the needs of others always gave him an excellent idea on what he could do. @Akiris @LightningBolt

    Rebellious Rose (Predator's Keep Inn)

    Returning from the expedition of from the river Enk stepped into the inn, being promptly greeted. It seemed like it was blooming a new life again, just as quickly as it lost it. Perhaps it was that kind of place that just received the excess of any other place, but to know maybe there was a comfort in knowing he had found a bit of a hidden gem there. "Well, it looks like we'll stop by for a bit and head to turn in our findings in a bit." Enk had said. He already had one night where he stayed from the kindness of the folk, and he wasn't about to stay another. He felt a sense of fairness and responsibility. Just as they walked in they already were welcomed and had their rooms prepared. It seemed like they were out so little time that they still were able to stay for the remainder of whatever the checking period was. "Thank you much." Enk said to Rafael, showing his gratitude. "Is that a new uniform or there a special show tonight?" He said, teasing him for being without a shirt. The fellow was well in shape and with wings. Enk could see that he was tempered from a tough passage back, which definitely made his imagination run wild. Maybe he was defending the town from an incoming danger, or hunting a ferocious creature out there. @Akiris@LightningBolt

    "I bet all of those long hours and romance novels got to her head." Enk said. She certainly must have been excited to talk to someone about all that stuff, or bored out of her mind to just continue on with her stories. At the gate it sounded like the guards certainly like to stick their noses in business that isn't necessarily theirs to start with, and though Enk has had his fair share of questions it was nowhere near as unreasonable as that. It almost seemed like it was harassment at that point. With the thought of an abandoned stash of resources Enk couldn't help but wonder if it was worth the visit. Unfortunately incorporeals were something way out of Enk's league, and he knew that if he wanted to fill up on the library they would probably need another hand to help out. And another hand meant another split of the profit, if there was any to be made. If there wasn't any yield it might be a big risk for little reward. Hoping to find a valuable journal, powerful spell tome or missing documents among the sea of common novels and stale art books was unrealistic, at least for the first time searching. And even if he brought back a heap of books the chances are they wouldn't sell particularly well, unless someone was trying to fill a library. But if Luke mentioned the place with the intent to go surely there was bound to be something of significance there. Or the mystery was compelling enough to drive them there. "Perhaps with the cart we can stash up on books. Who knows what might be in there." Enk said to Akiris. "Maybe there is someone at the inn who is willing to accompany us, make it a bit easier."

    When Akiris mentioned that they were at the edge already Enk was a bit curious and confused. It was pretty odd that they stood in a field of grass and yet they were in the forest. Akiris went to indicate out where the forest started and began. He pointed towards the menacing horde of trees, where no return was imminent. He then started to turn around and point in the opposite direction, which seemed pretty contrary to what Enk would've expected. That would put them somewhere within the forest already, without him even being aware of it. The true definition of the forest was pretty vague, but as long as there were trees even a grassy plains like this could still be considered a forest. Perhaps rather than being defined by the concentration of trees the forest was marked by the field of magic ."That is a bit frightening, to think we already might have potentially become stranded wanderers." Enk said, worried of the oddities of the stream. He wasn't sure what would make it so that you get lost at this point, but Enk was guessing that as long as the landmarks were still in sight they were safe. And they definitely weren't the kind to be visible at night, so a swift exit would be the sure way to go. "They are usually chewing away when they aren't carrying the cart. But maybe they will have magical droppings now." He said jokingly. Enk went to round up his oxen and head back to the cart, with the bottle now in hand. "We shouldn't get caught up here for too long then, it might only take a moment to take your eyes off the road to get lost." Enk mentioned, prepared to call it a success. "Conservitavely at least."

    "I have serious misgivings about drinking anything that looks like that." Akiris said. It seemed like he certainly wasn't a fan of the water, and probably wasn't for an unreasonable request either. With the suggestion to take the samples back and go enk closed up the bottle and noted the magical aura it had. Maybe it felt a bit too quick to go back but he was right. The assignment was to investigate the river, not to gather samples. And if they were able to gather it was more of a bonus. Enk couldn't help but feel that their observations weren't really conclusive though, they felt rather incomplete. What if the magic did fade from on the trip back and all they had was just a bit of an observation? Even though there was not a lot that could be done for a thorough investigation he at least wanted to be able to have an idea of what may have been going on. "Let's at least head to the edge of the forest and get a sample there before we head back." And with the suggestion to head back Enk noticed that Akiris had spotted something, perhaps unpleasant."Well fuck." Akiris seemed to have a quick moment to think to himself before deciding a course of action, and then he spoke. "Get back to the cart. We're getting out of here. We didn't bring enough fire to make this place okay." With the suggestion to start a quick flame Enk tried to think of a way to make a quick spark. He realized he left the fire board with Luke, so that wasn't going to be serving him much even if he could find a solid piece of wood he could make another. And after just a quick gaze around he knew that it wasn't going to be something possible. The moisture of the stream probably made the majority of the wood unusable for a flame, so a quick motion back to cart would probably be their best bet. Whatever it was that Akiris noticed was probably best left to be. "I guess back to the cart it is." he said, not wanting to find out whatever might have been lurking around.

    "Try the samples, like taste it?" Enk asked, curious on what his course of action would be. "I'll scoop for now, we can always pour it out and get another sample if need be." When Akiris mentioned scooping the samples Enk noticed he only brought one bottle with him, not recalling if he left the other two in the cart. All that they really needed was a single sample of water but multiple ones wouldn't hurt. Perhaps it was was best to have the samples taken in a meaningful way so that whoever looks further into it has a clear direction to continue searching. "Maybe we should gather the water at different points?" Enk suggested, thinking about what would be the most thorough way to investigate. He unscrewed the top and filled it with the semi-murky water from the stream, with it being a brownish-yellow tint. The water was as icy as if it was in the colder months, which was odd considering the time of the year."If there is something this should do." Enk said, referring to the bottle of water in his hand. With the bottle in hand he could sense the magic within the water. He screwed the cap back on bottle and put it in his pocket. Their first piece of evidence was gathered and he already felt like it the task at hand was in the palm. Hopefully contact had no negative effects, a trip to the cleric wouldn't be something that he would be looking forward to. Maybe that would be the lucky outcome though.

    "Maybe the forest is some sort of paradise." Enk said jokingly. To think that nobody comes out is a pretty scary thought, but what would be worse is someone did come out. He took not of the question of whether he has seen any wildlife and took the time to think about it. He wasn't paying a whole lot of attention, but that just means there wasn't anything abrupt enough to catch his attention. "Just the flies around." Enk said. "And a few birds, but I don't think I noticed anything on the ground." It was a bit strange that animals weren't present, and perhaps that was a sign that the water was not safe for consumption. Or maybe not safe in general. As Enk drew near to the stream he could feel the ominous magic flowing from it. It seemed like it was flowing from the mountainous region into the forest, which seemed logical. Water flowing down hill and providing water for a more lush environment. It was unusually cold, the moisture from the flowing water was already felt through the cloth of his pants. The water wasn't deep enough to really have any fish or tadpoles, so he couldn't judge if the temperature was too low for life. "Maybe the stream is repelling the wildlife." He said, pointing out what seemed common sense. He felt a bit dumb saying the obvious aloud, but he was just stating a possibility from his observation.

    Enk smiled at the thought of having someone what was just a bit magic savvy. Akiris' statement didn't seem like a lack of confidence or being humble, just a reflection on him either not practicing magic."Ah, that is actually pretty funny because I actually can sense magic as is." Enk said, reflecting back. Out of the few Elven things Enk could recall himself using that was one of them "I find it a bit strange that I didn't get any magic despite it being in my bloodline. But then again I have no luck with nature either, so maybe I just am not in touch my origins. Must be ordering all that Weland food on the weekends." He said jokingly. With Akiris mentioning the his oxen eating the evidence Enk became aware of the magic possibly having some potent effect on things. "If there is some magical aura on the river, I wonder how the animals and creatures are reacting." It seemed like that detail was something that had completely slipped his mind. But it wasn't like the was some twisted magic in play, mutating creatures in horrors. If that was the case it definitely would've caught the attention of the town folk and probably be ranked a higher class on the job board. If nobody was noticing was the magic effects of the stream it either was something that would happen in the long term or something minor. "I guess we would probably know though if it had some radical, immediate effect." He said afterward, expressing his moment of thought. Enk started to wonder if the magic was affecting the area around or if it was just a latent aura of magic. Unknown certainly would be a way to describe what the were looking for. There was a point where his cart wasn't really able to go too much further because the terrain was getting a rather wild. The grass was yearning to consume the legs of his oxen. Lucky the hardy wheels just plowed through the grass and left a flat trail in its stead. "It might be a bit slow and tricky to continue on the cart" The cautious merchant mentioned. He stepped out and looked at how high the grass was, noticing it was brushing against the bottom of the axles. "Let's continue on foot, since we can just follow the stream from here. It'll give them some time to rest too, away from the water."

    To here that the forest in a sense was alive was interesting. It seemed almost like the Weland Gorge, where everyday going through the mountain was different. What might be a shrubland one day could be a mudslide the next. "Man, the West side of Terrenus seems to like change." He thought aloud. "I guess with a view like that someone probably would've spotted anything that has been disrupting the stream." Enk said, thinking a bit to himself. It's likely that if they didn't know it the source that it was coming from somewhere underground or within the forest. "Ah, your helmet can show you things?" Enk asked, in a bit of awe. The tablet with the map was pretty neat, but to have a piece of gear you can put on and discretely have your own informational board readily available seemed amazing. Of course Enk at one point had his own version of portable information, he called it paper and pen. It helped him learn the ropes on the trade and lit the way for him. Enk noticed the oxen slow down a bit, which was a bit earlier that he expected. Usually he took regular breaks for them to graze and him to plan route and enjoy the outdoors. "The weather must be tiring the Oxen." Enk let out a sigh, hoping to reach a bit closer to the stream. He knew he didn't want to push them too hard but they really haven't been out of town for all that long. It was just a bit hotter than what he imagined it would be like, but perhaps the time of day was in play. The comfort of the cart and the breeze really made it a lot less noticeable to him. Enk didn't really think of collecting samples of the environment but it certainly would make a good addition for a complete survey. Anything related to the oddities of the stream seemed fair game, and it wasn't likely that there would ever be too much evidence of what is going on. Just too many mundane pieces of evidence.

    And just then they were out of town, in a swift motion of the guards. It seemed rather interesting that the path from this gate was a lot less wooded than the others. "I know the feeling of an uncomfortable familiarity. I stopped going to Ashville because of the scoundrels always trying to get me to pay 'merchant taxes' and bridge fees, like if they needed more money." Enk was interested in the story, and there was no rush to hear since they had a nice amount of time to on the road anyway. His concern was really accidentally stumbling into the woods without knowing it. Enk had never been close to the Labyrinth forest so he wasn't sure if there was a clear indication of the boundaries of the forest. He would assumed that you would be able to see the edge of the ominous area but a forest doesn't necessarily have to be dense, or sudden in the change of trees or terrain. "Hey Akiris, have you ever seen the edge of the forest?" Enk asked curiously. Akris mentioned earlier that they would not walk to the edge but it was unclear what the signs would be like. The road started to get a bit more rocky with them reaching a stretch of plains where the grass was become scarce. The Blaurg Mountain was clearly in the view on Enk's side of the cart; he noticed as he peered to his left. It was a marvel to him on the geography of the mountain, somewhere with much different terrain in each cardinal direction.

    "Honestly the bottles were a bit unnecessary." "I could've drank some juice from a plastic bottle and used that, but that wouldn't be a good impression, you know?" He said, reinforcing what Akiris mentioned about the presentation. And it was just enough for both of them to turn in a bottle and still have one left over, just in case. In little time they both hopped into the cart and started heading towards the nearest gate, as Akiris indicated to do so. He mentioned possibly heading back through a different gate. "Ah, you wanted by the guards?" Enk asked, curious if they were going to need to head a different way. He could accomodate and find out some solution for the two. "Or still concerned about the ghost?" He asked, referring to the Zine incident. It really could be a simple reason as just to head out and back in a timely manner as he said, but Enk just wanted to ask if there was . The cart was in motion at an easy pace, allowing them time to think through what their path of choice would be. Not that they needed to decide how to get back immediately, just something to talk about while they head out of town and to their destination.

    Enk prepared went to prepare his cart and alert Akiris of their departure. "Let's get a move then, I want to make a quick stop in town and continue." Enk declared, with the small hop. He checked for the bone shiv on his belt, strapped in his oxen and looked at his map and canteen. "Oh, I almost forgot to check something." Enk said, almost leaving without checking for spare rations. He went to the back of the cart and felt the true emptiness, with just some Suujali Jerky and his jar of water. He opened it and gave it a knock, noticing that it he barely drank any since the last time. A quick taste test to confirm it wasn't stale in flavor, and he was off ready to go. They took a quick path through the town, with nothing too out of the ordinary going on. Enk wanted to head to the marketplace right before he headed out of town, since he didn't have bottles to hold some water in. "It might be a bit, if you want to take a look around." He said to Akiris. There was plenty in the marketplace that was useful, but few that was truly impressive. He followed a rule of thumb to only get what he needs, otherwise he would probably fill his cart just from the market. Enk liked being prepared but he knew the best of solutions usually needed to be improvised. Enk took a look for a merchant he saw while he was on his way to check a few different inn. He knew there were bottles for sale, he couldn't recall if they were some kind of potions and concoctions or empty bottles, but depending on the price he could just pour out the contents and call it a day. Soon Enk was able to see the stand that caught his eye previously, but it seemed to be much different from what he recalled. He greeted the merchant who was actively advertising himself by talking about his bottles. It almost seemed like it was made out for Enk to find him. "These bottles are made out of volcanic glass. Shatter proof and heat-resistant" The merchant said to Enk. He looked at them, seeing the smoky gray color and perhaps imagining a slight heat to the bottle. "They still could chip and crack though." He clarified. Enk wasn't expecting something indestructible, but he wanted to make sure that an accidental drop or a rough ride wouldn't cause damage to the delicate bottles. Enk took a moment to question it he made a statement. "There are no volcanoes on Terrenus." The merchant scoffed at his comment, feeling challenged. "Of course there are, in the Blaurg Mountains. That is where these Dwarven-made beauties come from!" The merchant said with delight. "You mind if I test a bottle?" "If you pay for it you'll see how good it is." The merchant said, trying to get Enk to make a safety deposit. Enk could sense the confidence that the salesman had in his product, and even though he wanted a deposit Enk knew it was just out of good business practice. "Well, since you seem so sure I'll give you the coins and give it a drop." Enk said, taking out a few silvers from his satchel. He gave a pile to the merchant and the merchant fairly returned a few back, and he gave Enk the bottle with an affirming nod. And the bottle dropped to the dusty ground. With a nice crystalline ting ringing around the stall. Enk could feel the sensation of flinching as if it were to break, but the single ring gave him a sigh of relief. "Seems like you had a bit of doubt there. Good, aren't they?" That was not to say that a forceful throw wouldn't break it, but it was substantial enough to put certainty in Enk's mind. "Well, that certainly is some good glass." Enk said, impressed at the resistance. "I guess I'll take three." "Alright, you take that one and any other two." He said, shuffling the coins from the first bottle in his hand. Enk paid the man a fair price, showed his gratitude and left with the bottles in hand. He returned to the cart and put the bottles in the back, comfortable knowing that they would not break. Just like that Enk had already started a small collection of junk within his cart. Some glass bottles from Blaurg, or at least supposedly from there.

    And it wasn't to say that risk was bad, but it needed to be managed and calculated. You can't go into a situation feeling unsure or having no exit-strategy. Enk could agree with Akiris on that sentiment. There was no sense in going into a job that would probably get you killed since no amount of silvers was worth your life. Even with ethical resurrections and unnatural life it wasn't worth the chance. Enk would rather return to the dull life farm worker and know that he was going to live a few hundred more years than that of a mercenary who doesn't know if they will meet their end tomorrow. "It doesn't sound too bad. Take a look at the stream, find the source and just report what we find." Enk said aloud, confirming to himself what the task was. He felt that he would be able to do something that simple with ease, taking a look didn't necessarily mean doing anything fancy. It might even be something that could be done before sun-down, if they were lucky. Even if there was no compensation Enk felt like getting to know the area was much more valuable than any amount of money. Who knows if he could find something along the way, whether it is trinkets and spoils of war or the gratitude of the townsfolk. He grabbed his map and took a look at the area. The South-Eastern part of town wasn't too far away to head to, so he knew that they could get what they needed in the day and head out right afterward. "Perhaps we should get a few things and head out then?" He asked, seeing if Akiris was ready.
