Grant Hughes : "This was supposed to be a relaxing day" (Recap)

Grant had been sleeping in a haystack on the outskirts of Boq, with a bail of hay as a pillow, it appeared to be bright and early, and he HATED, waking up early. Grant had recently used up all of his traveling expenses on information about a certain witch that was supposed to be stopping at the town with a high reward for anyone able to take her down.

He had spent all but his spare water money on getting the information on her. Standing up out of the hay, completely nude, rather than brush himself down and get the hay off, he merely shifted his body to its true, gooey red state. The hay slowly slid down the membrane of his slimey "skin" and off of his body altogether. after which his appearance returned to normal and he donned his neatly folded clothes which say atop a tree stump.

"I cannot stand mornings , but I cant afford to miss my meal ticket I suppose"

Upon getting close to the center of town a large earthquake shook the land, it was so tremendous even with his arms turned to tendrils and impaled in the ground it was only a matter of seconds before he was too disoriented to hold on and fell flat on his back and plopped right the ground.

Gazing up into the sky, even from this distance, Grant could make out a house falling through the sky. It took him no time at all to rush to the scene of the commotion, which was no doubt caused by his meal ticket. He had been, for the most part right, a house had fallen, the Witch was involved, but she was the indirect source of the commotion.

" THE WITCH IS DEAD !"

One of the munchkins cried, just in time for Grant to arrive on scene and mentally curse 30 x's over in his head, and he had worked sooooo hard for this one, coming up with plans for days , and sleeping outside in haystack for two of them ! Just to come to collect his prize, only to find that another monster hunter had slain her with a mobile home moments before he could do the deed himself.

Grant waited impatiently as one of the crowd knocked on the door. Just to see who exactly it was that had killed her, who it was that was powerful enough, and daring enough, to use an entire HOUSE to kill the wicked witch with a penchant for red. Finally stepping out, was a girl with a small dog, and . . .no one, there was no one else inside the house.

No, that couldn't be right

" I lost my reward to a child?!" He cursed under his breath and gritted his teeth, the skin on his arms for a moment was visibly bubbling, but everyone's attention was so keenly focused on the girl it was hardly evident to the crowd. Watching the mayor now, as he announced there would be a feast, he sighed.

"At the very least , I'll be getting some information out of her when she isn't so overwhelmed, and the feast wouldn't hurt either"

Grant didn't necessarily NEED to eat, but he often felt as though he did, probably a small portion of leftover influence from the slime, driving him to eat without gaining any biological sustinance from it whatsoever, logically he should have been able to go on water forever by water alone.

Later at the town hall :

Grant would slowly approach Dorothy, with confidence in his stride, but in a rather slow demeanor so as to not shock the young girl.

"Hello ms. . . . .?"

"I do hope you're enjoying yourself at this little feast, but you seem to be rather confused and I would like to rectify that, so long, that is, as you are willing to answer any of my questions as well hmmm?"

Zach Taylor - Running Late

Zach had made it to the pub in a short while, the locals still buzzing about what had happened. Speculation was everywhere and Zach, while staying quiet, also pondered many of the thoughts the locals had. However, it wasn't long until a few of them turned their attention back to Zach wanting to hear more of his tales until the feast was ready. He happily obliged and managed to kill a great deal of time rehashing some of his favorite tales, including finishing the story from earlier.

After a good while had passed though, he turned his attention back to the barkeep, ready to move on as normal. He sat down at the bar and waited for him to head over. "What will you have?" the barkeeper asked. "I feel like some information." Zach said as he slid a few coins across the bar to him. "What have you got?" "Sorry pal, you're going to need more than that." the barkeep replied as Zach looked back up at him a bit surprised. It was more than he normally had to pay, what was going on? "Excuse me?" he asked him. "Demand's up. That guy over there..." the barkeep said pointing at a man just heading out "Just got the same thing. So if you want to double it, I may have heard something or I might not." Zach grabbed his coins and put them back in his pocket. "Nah, too rich for my blood, I'll go check somewhere else." He replied as he left, headed straight after the man and out into the street, mumbling to himself "No one steals my jobs."

Zach pulled his bow out and began to follow the man, but to his surprise, he began to remove layers of his clothes. "Well this is unexpected." he whispered and ducked behind a nearby building, readying an arrow on his bow as he watched the man continue to remove cloths until it became clear who he was. 'Cavier? What's he doing here? Who's he after?' Zach thought as he pulled the arrow back and took aim at the officer. 'Is he after me? Why didn't he go after me at the pub then?' Zach was just about to let the arrow fly when he heard a shout that seemed to carry all throughout the town.

PandaBrady wrote:"Everyone! Come in! My doors are open to you all!"


Zach pulled his bow down and quickly put it back as the townsfolk started to pour out of their homes and businesses and head towards the mansion. "Another time perhaps." He said as he began to shuffle in with the crowd and head towards the mayor's mansion. 'Might as well have some fun at the party.' he thought as he quickly approached the mansion. It seemed as though everyone was heading towards the balcony for the feast, but there was almost no guards to direct them or stop them from going anywhere else. 'Well, maybe I'll go explore beforehand. Might find something interesting.' he thought as he headed off in a different direction from the mob in the mansion. 'Let's see what the mayor keeps in his private house.' he thought as he headed down a hallway.

-Immediately after the Witch's death-

As Zayev walked out and onto the floating continent, he saw endless streams of jovial munchkins parading through the streets. He looked to his right and found a stern munchkin packing crates onto a small balloon, "So what festival are your people celebrating today?" Zayev asked in a somewhat cynical manner. The munchkin looked back at him with a snare and replied, "There's no festival, the witch Gingema was killed, crushed by a house."

Zayev had heard of the Wicked Witch of the East before and her shortcoming reminded him of his recent dethroning. He felt a light bit of remorse, but quickly retracted that thought. She was a ruthless witch who abused her power, his only folly was giving trust to his own men.

"I'm getting out before the next witch takes over and makes us her personal playthings, I'd advise everyone else to do the same." The munchkin threw his anchoring ropes into his basket, waddled into it, then began flying away. Zayev walked out of the port then funneled into the flow of people eventually leading him to the feast. Being the first promise of food since making it to Ahz, he casually followed to the banquet. After the meal he planned to sneak away and examine the manor for any oddities or posh goods to pinch. He was penniless, so he had to start somewhere...

Regina strolled back into her old town to see everyone all happy and joyous. She had been ready to toss her red cloak on if necessary but overheard many groups saying the witch was dead. With that, she tossed her cloak into a fire and strolled towards the center of the village. She saw the big, strange house and began laughing. Only then did she notice her own house ruined. "Mom!" she called out, running into the wreckage. She couldn't find the woman and left before seeing the woman in with the crowd dancing. She sighed and began running to her mother. She tackled her mother in a hug with a smile. "Hi, mom." she giggled. "Regina!" her mother gasped, hugging her back. "The witch is dead!" "I know!" she laughed. "But our house!" "We'll get someone to help us with it."

Rowan was walking back to the town once again. His visits were coming to be less often and harder trips between Ahz and Grimoire. While following the road, he saw an explosion from the Munchkin town in the distance. He began running as fast as he could, stopping only for a few seconds when he saw a house... fall... from.... the... sky... In a mixture of fear and confusion, he ran faster. He ran through the town, trying not to trip over the small people until he came to the destroyed house where he saw the woman he had come to visit and a girl he hadn't seen for eleven years. He reached to pick them both up in a hug.

Regina and her mother both froze and looked at Rowan. "Rowan!" they both laughed, wrapping their arms around the man. With the three united like a family, the women smiled. "You can put us down now." Regina smiled. Though she had grown to see the man as family, she was still hesitant around men. Once he put them down, Regina smiled, "Let's go eat." It was then she overheard something about a feast. "Perfect timing, I'm hungry." she laughed as she and her mother began walking to the Mayor's.

"It's good to be home." Rowan laughed to himself. He followed the women to the feast at the Mayor's. Once inside, he began looking for a spot for the three of them. "I haven't had a good meal in a week." he sighed. He set his pack behind his chair and leaned his new swords up against the table. It was then he noticed Dorothy. Looking at the strange girl, he sighed. "Who's she?" he asked, looking at Regina and her mother.

Ignatius turned his head to look at the Cait, who had told him to back off. The annoyance in her voice was barely suppressed, and this confused Ignatius. "Wha..I'm..sorry? I didn't mean to...I mean i'm a monster hunter ma'am and this Feral Dog looks danger-WAAUGH!" Was all that Ignatius managed to get out before the dog took advantage of the momentary distraction and tackled the both of them. Ignatius mentally cursed himself for being so inattentive, especially when faced with such a creature. now he was going to pay for it. His back was to the ground and so he couldn't draw his sword, but he could reach his knives, they were strapped to his legs. He was about to draw his blades and slice at the beast when his thought process was once again interrupted. The creature's mouth was descending towards Ignatius's face. There was no time to react! This was going to hurt...

No pain came. Instead Ignatius felt a rough, warm object stroking his face. The Feral Dog was licking him! It also gave the Cait a few licks before hopping off the two bewildered fairies. Ignatius jumped back on to his feet, but now he was throughly confused. The dog seemed to just be toying with them. If the creature was just playing, Ignatius did not want to hurt it. He sheepishly moved his hands away from his knives, and turned to the Cait. "Sorry if I got in your way. I don't think this dog is looking for a fight. Or to cause any harm." he said, extending an arm to help the girl up, if she accepted his gesture. Regardless of her response, he would continue with "My name is Ignatius, Ig for short. I'm a monster hunter, but I said that already. I think we should just leave the dog alone, honestly. Its not hurting anyone. I'm more curious about this girl, and this spontaneous party. Want to check it out?

Liv's ears perked at the words "monster hunter". Well, well, well what are the chances of a monster hunter running into a beast tamer in these parts. She determined that this salamander, despite his supposedly polite demeanor, had to have known what he was doing when he stood between her and her prey. Liv took a moment to relish the fact that she looked like a beast tamer already, despite this being her first assignment. She may not have particularly wanted to be one, but looking like one did give her a strange sense of accomplishment. As Liv continued to bask in the moment, the dog took the opportunity to pounce on them and took both of them down. Upon hitting the ground, Liv lay there stunned for a few seconds. The beast had gotten the upper hand... but she was about to settle the score. She extended her claws and turned with the intention of striking the dog, when her face was met with the beast's warm tongue.

Caught completely offguard, she shuddered as the warm drool covered her face. After what felt like an eternity, the dog finally stopped licking them and hopped off. She quickly retracted her claws and rubbed her face with her arms, and then proceeded to rub them on her tank in an attempt to get the drool off. That was disgusting...it usually takes a lot to gross me out since I had five older brothers but ugh....These beasts are not to be underestimated. Liv sat up, and began thinking about what her next move should be, when the Salamander began speaking again.

"Sorry if I got in your way. I don't think this dog is looking for a fight. Or to cause any harm."

She looked down at herself and noted small scratches and scrapes from being knocked down. The beast had already harmed them, regardless of his intent. Clearly this was a foolhardy attempt at lulling her into a false sense of security so that he could take on the beast himself once she had left the premises. With that being said, however, Liv couldn't completely discredit what he'd said about the dog being innocent. On the other hand, she also couldn't discredit the wisdom or power of the children of Ak & Sheegra. She pondered this for a few seconds before turning in his direction and noticing his extended arm. She stared at it as she listened to him speak.

"My name is Ignatius, Ig for short. I'm a monster hunter, but I said that already. I think we should just leave the dog alone, honestly. Its not hurting anyone. I'm more curious about this girl, and this spontaneous party. Want to check it out?"

After hearing him out, Liv remembered her original plan before being attacked by the beast. She wanted more information about the girl. It was true that she wanted to fight the dog, but she also wanted to find out more about the girl. She wanted to go to the party, but she didn't trust this Salamander enough to not double back and take the dog with him somewhere. It was at this moment, that she thought of a plan. With her mind made up, she looked up and smiled at Ig while using his arm to lift herself up. Ok, Liv, you have to make this good.

"Thanks, and don't worry about earlier. The name's Liviana, but Liv is fine. And, I'm a beast tamer. Before this incident...I was planning on going to the festivities myself, so I gladly accept your invitation to be my escort. About the dog...I don't mind leaving him alone...but won't his owner miss him dearly? Shall we take him to her?"

Her face was starting to feel sore from smiling so much today, but she didn't dare let up on it for a second. Liv needed him to come with her to the party and the dog needed to come with them. And while she was disappointed that she wouldn't get the chance to fight with the dog, she felt a little better knowing that Ig wouldn't be able to do anything with him either. She waited eagerly for a response.

Regina and her mother followed Rowan to the feast, neither one paying too much attention to the fairies and the dog. Upon sitting with the man, they both noticed the girl. "She's the girl that came from the house." Regina's mother said, turning to face the table. Regina smiled as she began thinking of some... less than pure thoughts. However, she knew she had no chance with the outworlder and sighed as she turned back to the table as well. "So, Rowan, where did you go this time?" the munchkin woman asked, nudging the hybrid with her elbow. "Another quest to find your memories?" Regina perked her head up and looked at him. "Oh, that's right. I forgot you don't remember anything from before waking up at Mom's. It's been, what, twenty years?" It was then she noticed Rowan's new swords. "Where'd you get those?" she asked, motioning towards the blades.

Ignatius pulled on the Cait's arm to help her to her feet as she too introduced herself. Oh so she is a beast tamer. That makes sense. This would be a prime catch for one of that profession. Still she seems to be smiling...a little too hard. She likely still has eyes for the dog. Well if she wants it she can contend with that girl about it, I just wanted to make sure it didn't hurt anyone. Ig smiled a genuine smile, glad that his would-be rival was unhurt.

"Hmmm...I guess you're right." he replied with a shrug. "We can bring the dog along...If you can get it to follow us, that is." He glanced back at the Feral Dog, which seemed to be calming down, relatively. He stepped aside and gestured towards the beast, inviting Liv to try her luck. After you figure that out, lets head to this party." He said with a warm grin.

Hmm, it worked? This was going a little too easily, but Liv didn't particularly mind. The faster they got to the party the better. She rummaged through her pockets for a stone. Once her paw found one, she pulled it out. Liv stared at the small jade stone as she thought about her options. Let's see, this dog clearly belongs to someone, so my usual incantation won't work....Something a little more temporary....Ok, I got it. I hope this works...

She turned away from Ig and began walking towards the dog. When she was a couple of feet away from him, she slowly placed the green stone on the ground between them, in an effort to draw the dog's attention to it. While keeping a claw on the stone, she recited the one word incantation

"Raptus"

If successful, then the dog would enter a trance-like state. While entranced, Liv would order the dog to "Follow the stone until you are in front of your true owner" This incantation was useful for controlling one beast for one specific task, so it was perfect for this situation. Once the task was completed, the trance would wear off. For the most part, it was pretty useful for returning runaway pets to their families unscathed. Or at least, mostly unscathed.

If the incantation was unsuccessful, then Liv would sit there, pretend that it worked, and hope that the dog would just follow her lead. "Follow the stone until you are in front of your true owner". Liv couldn't risk an enemy discovering that he was dealing with a novice. The embarrassment and shame from that situation would be...unbearable.

Whatever the outcome, Liv would pick up the stone and hold it behind her as she straightens herself. She'd then quickly turn and walk towards the Salamander.

"Lead the way"

As she stood next to Ig, she said a short and silent prayer to Sheegra. Please, please, please have the dog follow me to the feast. Liv wouldn't look back unless it was brought to her attention that the dog wasn't following her.
