The Ball Cruise on the Black Lake
“Oh well thank you.” She responded with a giggle; he could feel her rage; his 'sincere' reply didn't win her over. “I hope we can get all those poor people off the streets someday. You have no idea how much it pains me to see them on the streets begging for money.” ...Was that suppose to make him mad? He wasn't some sad homeless person who wasted his time begging for scraps. He would just be waiting for death's embrace if he was like that. He refused to be like that, that why he needed money. With money in mind, he made a faint note; he too a long look at Miss Pandora IX. That tiara of hers would definitely sell for a good price.
As soon as the man started talking and praising the lady, Raven pretty much stopped caring all together. As long as they were talking to each and not him it was all good. He took the opportunity to check up on his target. There was some commotion and it seem he had passed out, and people gather around. He didn’t get the best of chance to observe as his arm was sudden grabbed. He eyes turned to the staff member squeezing in and leaning in close. He threw him a pissed expression.
“Oh, but you hang around too, because you're my new best friend.” It was creepy the way he made that statement in an ambiguous tone that could mean multiple things. He either angry at him and wanted revenge or he to make out with him. The first one was understand since he did force him to talk with Miss ***** IX, but the other was just plan unsettling, like he ever have a relationship with him.
The lady looked appalled and hastily made her way exit, thank goodness… Yet he was the sneaking suspicion that he would have to deal with that chick again… The fates were certainly cruel enough to force him into another groan inducing meeting with Miss Pandora IX. But before he had to deal with the man in front of him that disturb his otherwise okay meal. Glancing down at his food, he didn’t even get to finish it and looking up in his distraction the guy he was following was gone. It was a waste, to waste food but he had no reason to hang around here or desire to deal with the annoying person in front of him. He scoffed as he pulled his arm feel free.
“Sorry ‘bud’, not interested in having any relations with you,” Raven remarked back as he stood up. He dusted his sleeve off. “It’s been interesting but I really have to be going, throw that plate away for me.” With that he left the area. He returned the formal outfit and put on his aged clothing; they were much more comfortable and he really didn’t care about what other had to say about it.
He momentarily stopped back at his room, to collect his swords. The crimson haired man decided to lie down on the bed. It was big and soft… he had never been on a bed like this in his entire life. And Raven knew it probably never happen again… that was alright though it wasn’t firm enough for his taste anyways. Getting up and putting on his weapons, Raven headed out from his room. Glancing behind him at nothing, the man still had that paranoid feeling that he was being followed even now. It felt stronger than usual, he felt like if there was one thing he shouldn’t do it was hang around in the confine room… but then again he never liked the idea of having only was route of escape.
Panic was everywhere and people were running about trying to escape the sinking ship. It was rather troublesome that his very first cruise was going to sink into a deadly lake and he would probably die. But he knew something bad was coming, nothing good happened without some negative outcome following. So while everyone ran around frightfully, he looted a few rooms. He found some gold and expensive jewelry he pretty much picked up anything expensive and easy for him to carry. Feeling some pressure, fear and his bag getting a bit full, he decided it was time to go. Even if bad things happen to him, he was still too cowardly to face his own demise… the extra money didn’t help relieve that fear.
He made his way to the top deck and there was a define group of people that stood out, some rather familiar and then ****in’ large sea monster. He stayed back they could handle themselves just fine. He was distracted by the large monster but soon realized there were some odd characteristic to these people; tails, horns… weird costume..... lack of clothes… whatever was going on over there; he didn’t want to know. A sudden and odd sensation that couldn’t describe came over him… a strange mixture between burning intense heat and something chilling and cool like a gust of wind. He must have zone out there for a moment. When he finally regained his mind he was crouching to toward the side of the stairs and he was completely dressed in dark blue skintight outfit which he could only say it look like ninja gear. And he had a pair of dark black wings.
Despite his shocking transformation and odd feeling of power, he still didn’t get involved with any fighting or approach the other people probably in the same situation as him. Raven honestly thought it would be best to just let them deal with the hard stuff and he could reap the rewards afterwards. It was getting dangerous as the boat began to slant… crap he was going to die if that touched him.
“Foolish Sinners!” the giant sea creature bellowed out thunderous, which got his attention. “You are not each others' enemies and neither am I,” it told them, but even if that was the case doesn’t mean any of the current… ‘beings’ were trustworthy. “Your vessel fast submerges into the depths of this treacherous lake and unless you do not care to continue living, it would be wise to allow me your safe passage across...”
His target, or at least it looked like him with horns, without hesitation on the creatures back and that was other reason for Raven to catch a ride on the sea monster. He bolted on from his hiding place a leapt on him with surprisingly more ease than he thought it would be.
Other side of the Black Lake
After one dragon ride later they were on forbidden land on the other side of the lake… then orcs surrounded him and Raven was trapped in a circle with those people that came along with the dragon sea monster.
It look like he had the actually fight now, he drew his two swords from his back flames crept down the katana’s blade. The orc closest to him felt a burning cut around his chest and another quick slice from his other blade across his neck. A couple more came charging and his stormy eyes turned to them and he held up his hand toward them and they were sliced up from what seem to be the air itself. Why he could do that or how he even knew he could do that it wasn’t known by him but it wasn’t really the time to think about it.
As back up toward the center of their now messy circle, Raven spotted from the corner of his eyes a furry and near nude chick making-up. He couldn’t help but roll his eyes in disapproval; there was no time for that… unless there was a lot of money involved.
“Get a room,” he scoffed in irritation; not that he cared if they got kill for doing pointless stuff like this when monsters are surrounding them. Another foe came charging and he prepared to attack back.
