Ugh right this is going to be difficult." Charter knocked on the door." Safria its Charter, I ugh I wanna talk to you." It was a full minute before the door opened and the Light Elf peaked out. She had her usual bored expression, but there was pain behind it. "Hey." "Hay look I want to talk to you, besides I think we need to anyway. May I come in?" Safria stepped to the side for him. "Done avoiding me out of guilt then?" Charter interned the room and closed the door." Yea look alright, I do feel guilty over what happen with Es. But I was talking with a friend of mine the other day and I realized that your prob- Your more than likely suffering more than I am, so I decided that I need to see you and be strong enough to see you so here I am." She looked away. "I'm fine. So don't worry about me. Really." Her voice cracked slightly. Charter reached out and grabbed Safrai arm and see some recent cuts on her." You started cutting yourself again huh, hum. I said I would make your time here more enjoyable and yet, right when you were actually starting to smile more your sister was taken I’m sorry Safrai." "Stop. Please, don't..." Safria squeezed her eyes shut. "I shouldn't... it wasn't..." Tears finally leaked forth. "Why... couldn't it have been me?!" Charter hugged Safria." I don't know, they wanted Es for something to use here for something. But we will find her again, and we will bring her back you have my word on that Safaria." Safria sighed sadly. "They wanted her because she's pure of heart. If I wasn't... the way I was, they would have taken me instead. It is all my fault." "It’s not your fault, Es is almost childlike. She always smile wants to help people in need, she wants to make people day better. She really is too good for them, and they want to take all that away from her." Charter looked at Safria. “Listen to me I will get her back no matter what." "How though?" Safria stepped away, rubbing her arms. "Do you even know where to look?" "No but we will find her, even if I have to find every cultist under that bastard and beat the information out of them. We will find Esmerelda again and I will bring her back no matter what." Safria nodded. After several moments of silence, she said, "I got a letter from home. Diamante lost it when he found out and went out to search himself. But... he... he went missing a week ago. He was staying in contact until then, but just... stopped. No calls, no letters." Charter said nothing." Ether they found him and killed him, or he knows where he they are and is in hiding, no matter what that is information that we need. Have any idea what his last letter said?" "It said he had a few leads. Felt like he was getting close to the truth, but he also felt like he was being followed." "Great I get to kill one of them then, no matter what for now we don't know were he is. Look why don't we head to the local inn you need to get out of here and stop mopping alright." Safria sighed. "Yeah... I guess. A night away sounds nice. This place... just reminds me of her." Charter brushed some of Safria hair and kissed her forehead." I know come on there's a small town near by let's go." Charter escorted Safria outside and they both got on Slone and road into town, on their way to town Charter looked at were Alice used to be, in his rage he forgot about the vampire and the threat she now posed now that she took a city for herself." Humm one problem at a time, come on boy!" Along the way, Safria pressed her head against his back and closed her eyes, seeming to take some comfort in the sound of his heartbeat. "Thank you, Charter." "I'm trying after all were both in grief, but we haven't lost yet you just gotta have hope and I know that Esmeralda will find her way out and back to us as well." "You really think so? She is more resourceful then people think. Maybe we'll see her sooner then we think..." “Hopefully.” As character and Safria made there way into town Character looked around and back at Safria.” First things first let’s treat those wounds of yours.” Safria looked at her arms. "Come on man they aren't even that deep. You're making a big deal outta nothing." “Well I wanna do it anyway, just for my own conscious please.” "Fine fine." Safria huffed. "Lead the way." "Thank you." Charter escorted Safria to the nearest alchemist shop." Excuse me miss, my friend here has a few cuts on her arms think you could help her." "Humm let me see your arms dear." Safria begrudgingly gave her arm to the doctor." Ugh not that bad not deep enough to kill, but best to give these a quick healing treatment. I'll be back with a healing potion." Safria looked up at Charter. "I'll pay you back for this. It'll be a while, though. Outta money." "Look don't worry about it alright, this just me being worried about you is all OK." The alchemist came back and poured a red liquid on Safria arms, and put bandages around her arms." There that should repair the skin and flesh, though do be careful I’m sure your husband here would be worried that your cutting yourself." Safria blushed and jumped a bit. "Husband?! What... makes you think...?" “Hum am I wrong for thinking that?” Character remained calm and shook his head.” She’s not my wife miss, she a Well my temporary girlfriend.” "Uh, that's right. Temporary girlfriend." Safria narrowed her eyes. "And it isn't weird, okay?" The woman just blinked."Um alright then, just look after those wounds." The woman sees Charters hands bandaged." You hurt to?" "No just a result of me training to much." "Well if then best not to train to hard alright, hope you two have a good day. That will be four silver." Charter payed the woman and then left the store. "You’re not embarrassed are you Safria?" Safria turned her head away. "N-no. Why would I be?" "Because that woman said you were my wife, and you got all flustered about it. Didn't think I would see you flustered at most things, though I gotta say that your cheeks turning red is a nice color."
