Kade cringed as the two shouted right in front of him his hands going to his ears as they finally asked what he wanted. “Entry?” The two guards tilted their heads. “Papers?” Kade shook his head as the two narrowed their eyes even further at him. “These two are merchants and I am their bodyguard we were robbed getting here of all our belongings just managing to escape so I am sure you won’t mind if we enter and look for work?” The guards clicked their tongues on the top of their mouths. “You don’t look like no merchants.”

Kade was reaching his limit when suddenly Zack’s calm voice echoed out to him. “Just bribe ‘em.” So Kade gave a sigh thinking it would be easier to kill them but causing trouble at the gate would be too much. “How much is it for entry for slavers?” Instantly the ears perked up on the guards almost as they straightened. “What about 5 gold? Could buy you half a life time’s food maybe even a rich manor?” The guards eyed him more suspiciously. “I thought you were robbed of all belongings.” Kade smiled as he rocked on his heels. “Oh they did rob those two but I am fine.” With a deft hand Kade pulled out his pouch Kaelan had seen it before at the bar the variety of different coins and the amounts were astounding as he sifted out five gold coins. “Thank you kindly.” Slipping it in the front pocket of Kevin... “Share it evenly now.” The two were so shocked at the bribe they didn’t say a word as Kade led them onto the cobbled streets.

Sin's eyes reddened when Kade mentioned 'slavers'. "You'd better not be planning on portraying me and Kaelan as slaves!", she whispered furiously at him. She hadn't expected a reply from him and didn't get one.....at least not yet. He paid the guards the bribe and they walked through the gates. Sin looked around, not sure what to expect or what she was seeing. Kaelan was just as much in awe as her sister, then Sin stumbled again. Kaelan quickly steadied her, "You have to rest as soon as we find a place, Sin or you're going to drop where you stand." Sin looked over at her sister, the look she gave her telling Kaelan she wasn't telling her anything she didn't already know, yet she kept pushing herself.

"When are you going to let Zack come out, Kade? You're being awfully selfich, even for you."

Kevin regained himself as he patted his chest. "Wow he gave us so much!" Turning to his partner with a smile.

In the distance the echoing of a Thompson burst could be heard from the gate as the group walked away.

Robert sighed as he looted Kevin's corpse..."Why take a little when you can take it all." Like they say no honor among thieves


The man sighed as he stood up from the table eyeing the money as a knock came on his door he lifted his head to the door finally shouting. "It is open!" The door opened with an old creak the walls beyond in the corridor a pale sea blue. "Report in?" The man didn't enter but quickly held a pad through the door. "Read it out damn it." The man pulled it back to him with a cough as he read the report file to the strange man living in the smoke.

"Umm...Kevin was killed today as well as the truckers were attacked losing almost 30% of the cargo and all drugs were sold today, units were dispatched to the farmers to retrieve more." The man in the smoke nodded slowly.

"How's Robert?" The reporter paled. "He has yet to be found." The man walked back to his chair a strangle clinking sound could be heard. "Outsiders have gotten in keep an eye open..."

Kade turned tilting his head to Sin... "Well he is busy gluing his body back together metaphysically to allow him to actually move." Kade didn't need to explain much more as he walked down the cobbled road admiring the huge gothic arches inlaid into the buildings. "Nice place."

The group walked for a good duration before finding exactly what they needed beds a hotel. Zack walked to the entrance removing his coat to at least look presentable to the people behind the reception desk he turned to the two girls smiling slightly. "Any requests for room?"
