[+778BA5 ➽➽➽] Personality-
+ Adaptable | Imaginative | Open Minded |
- Easily Bored | Meticulous | Self-Critical |

Mischa is an extroverted soul despite what her somewhat reserved demeanor may suggest. She's adaptable in most situations- choosing to logic things out rather than jump to conclusions or give in to hysteria. She's easily bored by monotonous work like her desk job, but if set to a project, she will meticulously see to the details herself to make sure that it's completed in a way that she can be proud to call it hers. She's very critical of herself- whether her appearance or her skills, and sometimes, this is a bit more apparent than she'd like to admit.

[+778BA5 ➽➽➽] History-
There was truly not much that set Mischa apart from other happy children growing up. Even being adopted as an infant by people who lived halfway across the world from where she'd been born didn't bother her. She never sought after her birth parents as it was never a big issue to her.

They noted a decline in her happiness at the time of grade school. She explained to them that she was no longer confident or comfortable in her own skin. They struggled to understand their child, and brushed it off mainly as nerves due to a new school, and having to make new friends. It was rarely brought up as her parents struggled to understand the plight of their child, and she instead focused on school and a newfound hobby.

It was here that Mischa threw herself into the world of literature. The girl always fancied herself a writer like those that were famed for writing classics. Perhaps one day, it would be her name on the shelves amongst them all, and people would praise her for her exceptional skills with the written word. A girl could dream, right?

As a student who recently finished up her stay at a local university, Mischa found herself looking for a job- like many of her other classmates. She found herself pushing papers as an intern- struggling with the menial tasks of paperwork that always looked like paper mountains on her desk. It was among a shuffle of papers that she found the leaflet for Mont Blanc. A getaway. A chance to start over new. Perhaps she could even finish her book?

[+778BA5 ➽➽➽] Miscellaneous/Trivia-
- Mischa always dresses semi-formally. There are no exceptions to this unless the attire is formal, and then she will wear women's formal wear.
- Fantasy is by far her favorite genre. If you're willing to discuss Harry Potter with her for hours on end, she'll likely be your best friend. .
- She likes being complimented on her hair or having it brushed by other people.
[Spoiler - Mischa isn't "out" so to speak. Meaning family and friends that she made in the city don't know of transgender status. She is using the getaway of Mont Blanc to hopefully gain some confidence to "come out". ]

「 What is your name? 」

「 你们好。我的名字是孙琴~
孙是孙子的孙
琴是古琴的琴
Hello~ I'm 孙琴 .
Sun like Sunzi- the famous poet who wrote The Art of War or 孙子兵法 . And Qin like GuQin- or a type of Chinese zither.」

[#3AA8C1 ●][#AD6F69 ●][#3AA8C1 ●]
「 Do you have any nicknames? 」

「 My real name was sold to the Madam, but they call me 姚珍珠 (Yao ZhenZhu). I would prefer you not call me this, however. 」

[#3AA8C1 ●][#AD6F69 ●][#3AA8C1 ●]
「 How old are you? 」

「 I'm eighteen 」

[#3AA8C1 ●][#AD6F69 ●][#3AA8C1 ●]
「 What is your gender? Who attracts you? 」

「 I suppose I've never given this much thought due to my... profession. Though, I would say that I am a woman who is attracted to other women. 」

[#3AA8C1 ●][#AD6F69 ●][#3AA8C1 ●]
「 You are cursed? With what and why? 」

「 I was cursed with the Dragon Zodiac. Even though I knew what I was- a YueJi* - I grew nervous as the day of my eighteenth birthday neared. Being eighteen meant more responsibilities than just cleaning and preparing meals. It meant that I too had to bring income to the Madam who owned what was essentially a brothel- although it was certainly not called as such.

Though I enjoyed performing music and dance, the idea of a man sleeping in my bed and being able to touch me intimately was terrifying. I ran away from the compound- although sure it wouldn't take long for them to find me as well groomed YueJi stick out very easily in a crowd of people. Not sure where I was going, I found myself at a nearby shrine. I carried with me my dearest possession- a zither that had been a gift from a potential suitor. As kind as he'd been in giving me the expensive gift, his intimacy scared me. I was not ready for this- despite having told myself over and over again that I had to for the sake of ever getting out of that place. I had some say over what happened to me, but ultimately, if I did not make any income, I faced the harsh reality of never being able to be free.

The night was clear, and this was as good a place as any to wait for them to- inevitably find me and take me back. I plucked the strings of the zither, but instead of smooth, gentle twangs of the strings, they were muffled and sour. Painful pins and needles sensations coursed through my fingers.

“You sell your smile to those men you look down on. Their smiles make your skin crawl, and yet you lie to yourself so that you don't have to accept who you are.” The voice was low, and my whole body felt numb. “The thing you love will soon turn into your greatest fear.”

When I noticed there were people surrounding me, I was shaken- mostly from the words that had not come from any of them. However, after being returned to the compound, I soon forgot about the pain in my fingers after they punished me for running away. 」

[#3AA8C1 ●][#AD6F69 ●][#3AA8C1 ●]
「 What triggers your curse? 」

「 My curse is triggered by lying or the sound of zither music. One might think it easy to always tell the truth, but it really isn't- especially when you lie to protect yourself. And now, to avoid the one thing that I loved the most- my music- is heart breaking. 」

[#3AA8C1 ●][#AD6F69 ●][#3AA8C1 ●]
「 How many years do you have left? 」

「 I have fifty-five years left. 」

[#3AA8C1 ●][#AD6F69 ●][#3AA8C1 ●]
「 What exactly does your curse do? 」

「 My curse comes with an increased metabolism- although this does not take years off my life. I eat much more than most people, and can still be hungry several hours later. Along with this increased metabolism comes a healing ability. I can heal myself- or perhaps others though I've never tried before. This takes four months from my life each time. I think if I could heal others, it could potentially take more of my life though. Years at most. My body is also changed noticeably each time my curse is used. A large patch of scale like skin slowly grows each time. I keep it concealed underneath my clothes, but I know it's only matter of time before it grows to where I cannot hide the scales. 」

[#3AA8C1 ●][#AD6F69 ●][#3AA8C1 ●]
「 What is your personality like? 」

「 I simply want to make the best of the situation that I am put in. Being YueJi has not made me a bitter person, and in fact, I rather like most aspects of this life. I can sometimes be a bit sensitive in regards to somethings in my life such as lack of interest in the possible suitors or relationships. Self preservation takes precedence over anything else to me. Ambition and the bigger picture do sometimes get the better of me as I sometimes fail to see small details along the way. 」

[#3AA8C1 ●][#AD6F69 ●][#3AA8C1 ●]
「 Where were you when your curse finally took hold? 」

「 I was being dressed when the girl noticed something that looked like colored scales along my shoulder. I could hear the voices of the other YueJi performing already, and the gentle plucking of their stringed zithers and pipas. The bruises from my punishment the day prior had healed and no longer throbbed in pain when I pressed on them. She only stared in open-mouthed horror as the scales grew along my shoulder. I begged her not to tell, but I know it won't stay a secret for long. 」

[#3AA8C1 ●][#AD6F69 ●][#3AA8C1 ●]
「 Anything else? 」

「 - I prefer those that do not know me from where I'm working to call me by my real name rather than ZhenZhu.
- I was the daughter of a poet and musician before working as a YueJi
- YueJi is the Chinese equivelant of a Japanese Geisha. In essence, they are prostitutes. But they are well trained in poetry, music, dance, and calligraphy. Keeping people company, and not just for sexual purposes.
- My sexuality is somewhat... repressed. I do not think I could be open about desiring to be with another woman.
- My favorite food- although is somewhat of a forbidden food for me due to a strict diet- is Baozi. Steamed buns with meat are my favorite, though I don't think I'd say no if it were to have vegetables in it either. 」]

[center 「❤ Ignorance is bliss... when not fatal. 」]


[center ➽➽➽ Name- Cho Eun-Chae
➽➽➽ Age- Twenty-one
➽➽➽ Sex/Gender- Female/Female
➽➽➽ Sexual Orientation- Homosexual
➽➽➽ Nationality- Eirwen

➽➽➽ Skills and Abilities-
☐ Chi Manipulation- The ability to manipulate one's aura or chi in a multitude of ways. Skilled users of this may be able to create weaponry or large barriers. Though, as Eun-Chae is new to this ability, her chi manifests itself in the form of quintessence- or life energy. She is able to use her own energy rather than the energy around her. The longer that she uses this ability, the more taxing it is for her. If all of her chi is used, it will leave her unconscious for a few hours so that she can recover. Spending her chi will not kill her, but it will drain her. This can also be harmful to her as she has burned herself with her chi in the past.
☐ Chi Duplicate- She is able to create one duplicate of herself by splitting her chi. The duplicate does not have abilities, and is significantly weaker than she is. It has a time limit of one hour. After an hour, its energy will be returned to Eun-Chae. She can only create one duplicate at a time.
☐ Chi Detection- The ability to see and detect other people's chi. She can "see" another's chi by its color and size. Though, she can only manipulate her own.
☐ Adaptive fighting style- due to the mandatory military training in Qiu, she has learned to adapt to many fighting styles including close range. This is not a supernatural trait so much as one that was taught through rigorous military training.

➽➽➽ Secrets-
☐ Eun-Chae is not her real name. It's actually Mischa Maximoff. She was given the name Eun-Chae when she and her brother were sent to Qiu at a young age.
☐ She has a habit of dyeing her hair a dark brown so that she won't stand out. Her natural hair color is a bright auburn.
☐ Eun-Chae and her brother technically hold the titles of Crowned Margrave of Eirwen as they are Tsar Aleksi's first born children. The rigid caste system keeps them from attaining their titles through normal means.
☐ After being relocated, she developed a habit of self harming. This is a secret from even her brother, and she has many inventive ways of covering up the scars. She does this because of her anxiety of being abandoned by the people she loves- namely her family.
☐ When nervous, her chi tends to shock her- or others if they're close enough to her.

➽➽➽ Partner-

➽➽➽ Personality-
Amiable | Dedicated | Dependable | Cold | Prideful | Haughty |

Mischa is eager to prove herself to those around her that she can do what she set out to do. The last thing that she wants is for someone to see her ask weak, and she would do anything she could to keep that image out of people's heads. The girl has a lot of pride in her skills, and can sometimes come off as though she thinks she's better than others, but she truly doesn't mean to act this way. She is friendly and dependable to those she's gotten to know.

➽➽➽ History-
Born Mischa Maximoff to Tsar Aleksi Maximoff and one of his many mistresses, she and her brother were raised by their mother out of view of the Tsar. Because his mistress was not of the noble or royal class, he could not make her his wife, and his twin first born children were deemed bastards. He faced a hard decision in labeling them as undesirables or sending them away to a foreign land under new identities to live a more peaceful life.

Mischa and her brother were given new names, and we're forced to adapt to a land so different than the one they knew that was covered in ice. She found Qiu quite beautiful, and desired to fit in as a member of society. She adapted their customs and traditions over time- dyeing her auburn hair a dark chocolate color as it slowly grew in length. Her love of tea led her to her dream of owning her own shop. Those dreams were abandoned, however, after the people stopped enjoying being out after dark. She had no second thoughts in wanting to travel to Atris, and threw herself wholeheartedly into becoming a guardian. She does have a bit of an ulterior motive in that she hopes to prove that she is a more worthy Margrave than the Tsar's other children that currently wear the crown and title that she knows she and her brother deserve.

➽➽➽ Notable Information-
☐ She has a fear or large bodies of water as she cannot swim
☐ Mischa is 175 cm tall without heels or height adjusting shoes
☐ Sometimes without meaning to, her Eirwen accent will come through when she speaks the common language.

➽➽➽ Clockwork Heart-
☐ Her Clockwork Heart is purposefully split into two forms. The magic channel is in the form of a brooch that she uses to clasp the front of her qipao shut. It is shaped like a lotus and made of hand cut jade from the Qiu jade quarry. The timer itself is a watch made from obsidian with six gear dials that move independently that count down the years, months, weeks, hours, days, and seconds respectfully.

「 What is your name? 」

「 我的名字是颖恩~ 很高兴认识你
Hello, my name is Ying En. 」

[#319177 ●][#D98695 ●][#319177 ●]
「 Do you have any nicknames? 」

「 I do not have any nicknames, but I'm open to the thought as long as they aren't degrading. 」

[#319177 ●][#D98695 ●][#319177 ●]
「 How old are you? 」

「 I am 24 years old 」

[#319177 ●][#D98695 ●][#319177 ●]
「 What is your gender? Who attracts you? 」

「 I was born a woman, but I was always much more comfortable when my parents treated me as their "son" instead of their "daughter". I'm comfortable in my body as a woman, but I prefer masculine pronouns over feminine ones. As for who I like, I truly have no preference for gender- though I do prefer someone more ambitious than me, and someone who wouldn't be afraid to work hard to achieve their goals. 」

[#319177 ●][#D98695 ●][#319177 ●]
「 You are cursed? With what and why? 」

「 The spirit that I was cursed with was the horse. Raised by a general of the imperial army and his prostitute-turned-trophy-wife, my sister and I were raised under an iron fist. We were often treated like sons rather than daughters, and where my sister excelled in schooling, I struggled to pass the examinations. I had little goals when it came to matters of acadamia. She was frail in stature, however, and did not stand up to the rigorous physical training. I learned swordsmanship from my father, and he was the one to give me the name En.

When I became older, freedom was something I craved. I told my father I wished to be a historian, and he relented- allowing me to travel as I pleased.

I returned home one year to learn that my sister had died. I was devastated, and left once again, but this time, I knew that I would not be returning. I had nowhere to go, but that had never stopped me before. The only thing I had to my name was the sword I'd been taught to use.

I lived on the streets and traveled from city to city for the better part of two years- no drive nor ambition left in me to gather more information about the past. One night, in somewhat of a stupor, I was in desperate need of food and a place to rest when I was found thieving by an old monk. It wasn't that he'd caught me that had startled me; it was what he said to me that ultimately shook me.

“You never finish what you start. Perhaps you need some responsibility given to you in life to make up for your startling lack of ambition for a young person your age,” His touch felt as though I'd been knocked over. I couldn't breathe, and when I came back to my senses, I found myself gasping for air on the ground- no old man in sight. I know now that I've been cursed, and while I certainly don't see this as a good thing, deep down, I know he's right. 」

[#319177 ●][#D98695 ●][#319177 ●]
「 What triggers your curse? 」

「 It seems that any strong feelings of guilt trigger my curse. My emotions are always tied to the strip of color in my hair, but guilt is the emotion that I feel the strongest most of the time. 」

[#319177 ●][#D98695 ●][#319177 ●]
「 How many years do you have left? 」

「 Being told that I only have thirty-four years to live seems to have shaken me somewhat 」

[#319177 ●][#D98695 ●][#319177 ●]
「 What exactly does your curse do? 」

「 My curse has made me into a danger detector it seems. Like a dog with it's nose, I can sense when something bad will happen- even if I don't know what it is. Even if this doesn't take years from my life, it isn't a pleasant experience. The colorful streak in my hair I suppose the god thought it would be humorous to give me a built in mood detector as well. Normally, it's just pink, but occasionally, it does change color. What does take years off of my life is the probability manipulation. This takes six months from me each time, and each time I've been accidentally triggered, it has never been a good thing. 」

[#319177 ●][#D98695 ●][#319177 ●]
「 What is your personality like? 」

「 I tend to keep to myself. To be honest, I don't do well in a crowd, but I refuse to let anyone else know this. I am self-reliant, and quick to think of solutions to problems that might seem difficult otherwise. I might not be book smart or well educated, but I would like to think I am intelligent about other things. At times, I suppose I can be a bit stubborn. Over-all I'm not an open-book- despite what the color changing hair might say about me. 」

[#319177 ●][#D98695 ●][#319177 ●]
「 Where were you when your curse finally took hold? 」

「 I was in the middle of town when I first experienced my curse. A small girl reminded me of my sister, and I felt guilty and sad about the things that had happened when I was away. There was a sharp throbbing in my head, and the next thing I knew, a lantern had tipped over, and caught the hay the horses were eating alight. People were obviously frightened, and even though I was disoriented, I hurried to get away before I caused more damage. 」

[#319177 ●][#D98695 ●][#319177 ●]
「 Anything else? 」

「 - I'm rather fond of dancing. While I've never experienced it myself, the times that I did see dance performances, it reminded me quite a lot of sword techniques.
- I'm afraid of large bodies of water.
- I enjoy brush painting very much. While my calligraphy was always a bit sloppy, painting always was very calming.
- I do not enjoy when others touch my hair- especially the colored streak. 」

[center [Abel Her scales function like solar panels to keep her warm. Her scales also act as conductors of energy transfer. She is able to take energy from someone or transfer it from her own body into another person.

This can be overwhelming at times, and more often than not, this will leave her drained and exhausted.]]

[center [Abel Kellen represents the star arcana tarot card in the upright position. This is an important card for personal growth and prosperity. In the upright position, the star represents faith and hope for the future. The star is sombre, enigmatic, and questioning. Kellen has always been patient and thoughtful- choosing to wait out events until she had a strategy. Despite this, she has a tendency to overthink if a solution to an issue is rather complex. She occasionally comes across as a know-it-all without meaning to.]]

[left [size15 [Unica+One Biography-]]]
[center [Abel Raised between two tribes of Thylians, Kellen was moved over to the tribe of Amazons when she began to show signs that she desired to be viewed as female. One tribe was made up of women and female identifying Thylians, and the other men and male identifying Thylians. They had a pact to exchange children between their tribes when the children hit puberty depending on how they chose to identify. To those within these two tribes, this was common practice, and Kellen went willingly.

Because of her talents, she was apprenticed under the Shaman of the Amazon village. That was, until the Nylians invaded. Even their strongest protection magic couldn't protect them against those that invaded and ravaged their lands. They destroyed years of culture and customs and rounded up those that remained. Among those that remained in her village was Kellen.

They found her energy train and transfer was almost fatal to Nylians and decided that it was better that she wear gloves and be kept in a cold room at all times save for an hour everyday as without this warmth, they'd likely kill her since her skin is naturally ice cold. Like a snake, she's sluggish to the cold temperature. ]]

「 Background 」

Phoenixes were often sought after for the rumored healing properties of their tears. Tang was a young girl at the time that she was poached from her home by foreigners from a surrounding kingdom that had heard that phoenixes lived not far away. She was brought back to their kingdom with them.

After learning that phoenix tears do, in fact, have healing properties, Qiu Tang was put under high stress. Though, they did not know that this would speed up the reincarnation process. Phoenixes usually lived short lives, after which, they would turn to ashes, and be reborn again.

She eventually escaped the clutches of her captors and found solace in the mountains to the west. They reminded her of home, and she made a place for herself there. The villagers were more than friendly to the foreigner despite their cold indifference at first, but after a while, even she grew to enjoy their company. She refuses to let her past control her interactions with others, and does not allow fear to guide her- despite not wanting to be used again by others.

「 Sexuality 」 "I'm Byesexual as in: Bye don't touch me."
Homoromantic Asexual*

「 Likes 」 Hot Springs, Poetry, Being social

「 Dislikes 」 Extremely cold weather or temperatures, Poachers, Greed

「 Powers 」 As a phoenix, pyrokinesis is one of the powers that befalls Qiu Tang. Though, she has limited knowledge of how to control this, and usually refuses to do so as fire can get out of hand very easily. Her body core temperature is very high, but in extremely cold conditions, this will fall which will leave her susceptible to sickness.

Reincarnation is also one of her abilities. Under high stress or old age, her body will turn to ashes, and she will be reborn much younger.

Healing tears is something that phoenixes are poached for. However, for the tears to have any healing properties, the tears must be shed willingly, and not forced out through torture or other methods. Otherwise, the tears are just salt water.

[Abel [center [size15 「 马 」]

En settled into the warm bath with the book he'd brought with him from the room he'd shared with Himeko. Most of it was meaningless words or drawings about the places he'd been before he'd found himself needing the company of this rag-tag team. His documentation wasn't the cleanest, and he struggled with reading his handwriting at times, but he thought that it might be best to write down the names of his companions and his thoughts about them for future reference. Even though they might change later, first impressions were everything.

The door opened, and instinctively, En reached for his sword- placing the book on a nearby ledge where it wouldn't get wet. He hadn't expected anyone to follow him here, and had thought they'd all be asleep by now. His hand wrapped around the hilt, but paused when he noticed that it was Tadashi. A rather drunk Tadashi at that. There was really no threat, and so he eased up on his sword- placing it back into the resting place against the wall. “Hey, Tashi. Are you sure a bath is such a good idea being drunk and all?” Though he was fine with bathing with the god, there was a matter of... anatomy that would surely be noticed.

“I thought everyone was asleep. As for Himeko, I'm pretty sure she hates me to be honest.” En let out a soft exhaled laugh through his nose. It wouldn't come as a surprise as she'd been rather offended when he'd tried to help her earlier. She had seemed to calm down as the night went on, but she had never attempted to actually talk other than to give him simple answers. He too kept to himself for the most part- save for taking the initiative in the lie Tadashi had pushed them into.

“From the way you shot off to the room, I figured you would...be....cuddled...with….Himeko. My chest doesn’t look like that.”

The god's words brought a bright flush to En's face. Shit. He had noticed after all. Despite being fairly small chested, En had a... much less masculine figure than the clothes he'd worn before might have suggested. The last thing that he wanted or needed was for Tadashi to treat him like he treated the other women in the group. He was attracted to the god, but that didn't mean he wanted to be treated like all he could do is a beauty routine and fashion. He meant no offense to Jun and Qin, but they embodied femininity, and that was something that En feared for himself above most other things.

“You’re...a...Is your name...What the...I... Those are...That’s….Are those new?”

It was a lot to process, but it honestly felt as though he'd broken Tadashi. “Tashi, will you please be quiet. Stop babbling. I will explain. You caught me at a bad time, so I guess I don't have a choice.” Though, he could have probably just told the man to go to sleep and that he was dreaming the whole damn thing. He pushed damp hair from his face and crossed his arms over his not-so-masculine chest. “Yes, I am the first born child to General Ying and his wife. My name is En. Well, that's my courtesy name given by my father because instead of two male heirs, he was given two female children. One of which could not handle the weapons training or the stress of becoming learned. My given name isn't of much import, and so I won't be sharing it with you.” Tadashi didn't need to know everything about his life. Not that En envied his sister's life at all, but being the only able bodied child of his father hadn't necessarily been a walk in the park either.

“I have never been as feminine as Qin or Jun, but even despite all of that, I practically had to run away from home to allow my father to let me leave the house. It's why I dress and act like a man.” He hated to admit it, but the three other women in the group were far braver than he'd ever been. “After being told that if I dressed the way they did and acted like them, then all men would do is take advantage of me, then I hope you can understand why I act the way that I do. That being said, I would really appreciate if you kept this between the two of us, Tashi.” Part of him still was hoping that Tadashi was too drunk to understand or care, and that he'd just forget about it later.

“I should really... go back. This is already uncomfortable for both of us.” En stood once again- this time in an effort to get out of the bath to leave the male there by himself so that he would quit ogling him. ]]

Qin had laid her own bedding beside Jun's. The girl was already asleep by the time that she'd finished, so she hadn't thought it prudent to ask if she minded sharing her sleeping space. The room was cramped as it was, and she'd rather intrude in Jun's space than someone less approachable like Chikusa or someone who seemed a little too familiar like Tadashi. The last thing she needed was getting felt-up in her sleep by the god. Though he was mostly polite, she'd noticed that he was quite big on physical touch.

The woman returned with a basin and a washcloth. Qin had no interest in asking the snake to do her beauty routine for her. Instead, she took a brush from her bag and ran it through light brunette hair that was still damp from the rain. She was was sure this was a far cry from her normal appearance. It was why being recognized had shaken her up so much.

“Do you want me to go beat up that old man?”

Tashi's words came in jest, but they only made her sigh. “[#3AA8C1 I do not think that to be wise. It isn't the first time someone has said unkind things about either one of us. As much as I would like there to be justice for what was said, I think it best if we brush his words off as those of a drunkard and leave it at that.]” She placed the brush in her lap as her fingers moved through her now smooth hair to tie it back into a loose hairstyle that would be comfortable for sleep.

“If you want. I could wake up early with you and we can see about getting you some new clothes. You look… too regal for a group like ours. I realize you would rather have Kitten with you, but I think it would be better for me to be there. As a pre-measure. Wouldn’t want murder on our hands as well.”

His words brought a laugh from her mouth, and a pained smile. “[#3AA8C1 Regal? I'm hardly regal in this.]” Much less with the constant threat that the scales that spread from her shoulder might grow if her curse were triggered. Where she'd run from, her attire had been akin to that of servants clothing. It was hardly regal. But then again, the clothing of her companions had not been nearly as stunning even for clothing of those of lesser rank. “[#3AA8C1 Though... I will take you up on your offer only because I am afraid of bringing harm to everyone if someone else were to recognize me.]” Despite running away from one dangerous situation, there was still a good chance that someone far more dangerous than a drunkard could recognize her. “[#3AA8C1 Himeko and I are friends, but perhaps since you're a man, you'll suggest blander outfits to help me blend in better.]” She gave him a playful nudge before she stood and made her way back to her chosen spot for her bed.

「 ❤ Time Skip 」

The woman bolted upright- her breathing heavy and labored as she woke up from a terrible dream that had replayed for the last few nights. Her hair had fallen from its loose position and now fell around her shoulders. Sleeping had become increasingly difficult as she always found herself waking up panicked and confused in the middle of the night. Even more so this night as she didn't recognize the place that she was in the darkness. As the door opened, Qin relaxed somewhat at the form of Himeko. She seemed rather out of sorts, but it was a face that she was able to easily recognize regardless of how drunk or intoxicated she was.

“[#3AA8C1 [i It was just a dream. You're among friends,]]” She reminded herself internally- letting out a shaky breath as she once more eased herself down into the blankets.

“Himeko, wake up,” The voice came from Chikusa. Qin almost snorted a laugh at the thought of Himeko crawling into bed with someone she seemed to have been afraid of since they'd met him. Not that she blamed the girl of course. “Hi.Me.Ko. Get out of my bed before I do something you'll regret.” She wondered if she should step in and help her out if only to keep him from waking everyone else up.

“[#3AA8C1 Chikusa,]” Qin whispered to him- hoping that she could get his attention. “[#3AA8C1 Let her sleep. You and I can just switch. I'd rather we do this that way we don't have to wake anyone else up. Unless you'd rather sleep with her in your bed. Then, that's fine as well.]” Plus, Himeko had seemed a bit intoxicated. The poor girl probably wouldn't be able to make heads or tails of where they were telling her to go. ]]

[i *Lan is En's sister. Don't remember giving her a name before until now, so this is why this is going in this is asterisked.]

Himeko returned as he passed the proverbial speaker totem to Tadashi with Qin following her a bit later at the end of the tale. He had told the tale very similarly to what he'd had in mind. He gave Qin a reassuring look- though she seemed more preoccupied with her conversation with the sheep. A small hand was placed on his arm, and he looked over to his “wife”. He placed his hand on hers- giving it a light squeeze before returning the hand to his side.

“[#319177 It's alright. I hope you both are feeling better though.]” En said this mainly out of concern rather than the fact that it was technically his obligation to do so as her fake husband. He tried not to grimace at he sound of Tadashi encouraging the hostess in continuing to think about their “marriage” further. Not only that, but it was far too late as whatever she'd done had acquired them two rooms. Not ideal, but it was by far better than sleeping on the ground.

The most talkative of them hurried off to the gods knew where. A small feeling of annoyance filled him. Their group seemed to have a hard time sticking to the story they'd laid out. For someone who wanted to avoid suspicion, they drew more to themselves than they kept off it seemed. Something for them to work on for the next time.

En stood and followed after Chikusa. He caught up with the others as they were being led down to the two large rooms at the end of the hall and slipped his arm through Himeko's- choosing instead to hold her arm rather than her hand as it was less forward. She seemed to particularly hesitant to touch him, and he didn't blame her, but he figured that it was better to do this now and pay the price later. He noted that only one bed mat had been laid out in one of the rooms.

“[#319177 Right,]” He breathed aloud to himself- somewhat embarrassed about the lie he'd found himself in. Though he was more fortunate than Himeko and Qin who had mentioned that they couldn't lie, he still didn't like to exploit others whether it was for the sake of survival or not. He was somewhat relieved by the fact that the hostess had left them to their own devices once more. “[#319177 I don't mind it either way. If we stay like this, I'll sleep on the floor unless you'd rather share a room with Qin. The two of you can just share this one.]” He only mentioned the dragon woman as the two of them were a lot closer than the rest of their group, and it might be less awkward for her to share with someone she was friendly with.

“[#319177 I'll just wait until the baths are ready to clean up.]” He said as Chikusa requested something to clean themselves with. As much as En hated to let the male know he was right, he wasn't wrong at all. They could all use something to clean themselves with. Though, with the bath to himself, he was afforded more privacy than just using a water basin.

~

About an hour had passed since they'd sorted out who was sleeping where. It was fairly late by now, but he still wanted to bathe before he went to sleep. He and Qin had decided not to switch to keep up their lie as they'd done a terrible job of it thus far, and so he sat with his back to Himeko on the floor- writing in a small book that he'd brought with him in the dimness of the small lamp light that somewhat filled the room. He'd remained silent since they'd gotten to their rooms so that if Himeko wanted to rest he wouldn't disturb her. “[#319177 I'll be back in a few minutes. I'm going to check to see if the baths are ready. I'd like one before we leave.]” En sat up and stood slowly. To his surprise, it was empty, and the water was still hot. They must have done so because of the size of their party. Otherwise, it'd probably have gone cold by this point- not that a cold bath would have been a bad thing either.

Placing the sword near the bath as a precaution- not that he assumed he'd use it, he took the opportunity while everyone else was asleep to clean himself from the trip there. “[#319177 Just because I look like a man doesn't mean I have to smell like one,]” En thought with a small laugh.

Taking the pink strand between his index and thumb, he wondered why it had betrayed him so much that night. It wasn't normal- or so he thought. Especially the violet. Then again, none of the people from his own village were half as attractive nor as interesting as his current traveling companions. “[#319177 I feel like I become a little more like Lan* everyday,]” The thought distracted him, and he knew he'd been in there a while, but not nearly long enough for people to come looking for him, surely.]]

“[#3AA8C1 You're the furthest thing from ruined. If men are intimidated by a strong woman, they aren't really men at all in my opinion.]” The thought almost made Qin laugh, but she contained herself. Strong women somehow had a habit of scaring men away, and it was probably why the man seemed so against her carrying her sword. Himeko's view of herself was no doubt skewed by the man she was supposed to have married, and it only made her somewhat satisfied that her curse had given her an out of an otherwise terrible situation. Not that the other woman would admit as much to her friend in case she found her opinion to be unfavorable.

“[#3AA8C1 In a way, it feels like our curses have given us a second chance of sorts. A chance to actually live life. It may not feel like it with this burden of a curse, but as the saying goes 'the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step',]” Qin felt a bit more optimistic than before. She let out a sigh and regained her own composure. The honesty they'd had had made her feel at least somewhat better even though she still felt as though she should alter her appearance somehow to make herself less recognizable to keep eyes off of their group. She had to trust that she had friends in this group. Until they died or whatever fate was to befall them happened. She didn't reply, but Himeko wasn't the only one who had thought about death. “[#3AA8C1 Whatever happens to us here is a far better fate than returning to where I left. Without a doubt I'd be sent to a far worse place than the one I've escaped from. I think that can be said for more than just me though, but I can't speak for the rest of them.]” The Madam surely had had enough of her antics, and she'd cost her more money than she could ever hope to repay back in her prime years as a courtesan. “[#3AA8C1 I'll join you in a moment,]” She replied as Himeko left her.

Taking a deep breath, a calm mask returned to her doll-like features before she entered the tavern once again. She felt eyes on her as she reetered, but ignored them- returning to her spot beside Jun. Qin gave Jun a reassuring smile- choosing to ignore the ending of the tale that Tadashi weaved. Maybe she'd get him to tell her the tale another time that way she could understand it in full. “[#3AA8C1 If you keep looking like that, you'll get wrinkles,]” She nudged the other girl with her elbow gently. They took care of their appearance, and so the threat of wrinkles was best avoided- though she had meat that teasingly.

Before she could say anything else, the hostess reappeared to inform them that there were indeed rooms available. It was luck on their part even if they were forced to share two rooms between them. The story they'd weaved had made it somewhat impossible to get around. The hostess seemed kind enough, though. However Tadashi had charmed her, she'd have to ask later as it was rather impressive. Before she could do anything, Himeko and Tadashi had left them. “[#3AA8C1 I guess we should get going as well. I don't know about you guys, but I'm tired, and we only have more walking ahead of us.]” They were supposed to walk all the way to Japan to get rid of their curses, so it was without a doubt a long journey ahead of them.

Qin stood from her spot, and followed their leader as well as the fiery Tiger girl toward the inn. She caught up with them as their hostess was asking if this was everyone. “[#3AA8C1 Not quite. The others are lagging a bit behind, but I'm sure they'll catch up,]” She interjected. They should probably go find their rooms and figure out who was sleeping where. “[#3AA8C1 I don't mean to rush, but could you please show us where we'll be sleeping?]” Qin asked as the woman informed them of their rooms. It was lucky that they'd be ready so quickly.

The brunette followed quickly after the woman as she led them to the two rooms at the very end of the hallway. “These are our two biggest rooms,” There was some giddy pleasure in her voice after informing them of that fact as though she were living her youth once again precariously through the “married” couple.]]

En watched as Himeko left the table to go check on Qin who still hadn’t returned after her initial outburst. He too had wanted to make sure she was alright, but agreed that going after her would only raise more suspicions. He wasn’t even sure how to go about acting like a married couple- much less act as though he were married to someone who very likely held anger toward him from his previous attempt to help her. Despite her outward forgiveness of him, he doubted that she had just let it go.

The story that was begun was the Japanese version of a legend En remembered his mother telling him and his sister when they were younger. His sister had been far more romantic in her beliefs, but he’d never found very much interest in legends like this one. He’d refilled his bowl of noodles by the time that Chikusa had finished the beginning of the story. Suddenly aware that all eyes were on him, expecting him to finish the tale that’d been started, he shook his head. “[#319177 I’m not really that great a story teller. Wouldn’t you rather finish it?]” Besides, Tadashi had asked Chikusa to tell a story, and their… leader if he could even be called that had the patience of a child.

When it was clear that he wouldn’t be getting out of the storytelling, En let out a sigh and set down the half eaten bowl of food on the table. Maybe if he told it bad enough, then the next time they had to stall for time, they wouldn't ask him to do the story telling. “[#319177When they met, Orihime was uncertain of her father’s choice for a suitor,]” he began slowly- knowingly diverging from the story only to make it a bit more interesting. “[#319177 Although she was afraid of never finding love, she was also afraid that he wasn’t worthy of her love and commitment. She humored her father in meeting with Hikoboshi, and over time, she felt herself starting to enjoy his company, but she was afraid to love him without knowing his love was genuine. After he proposed to her, Orihime concocted a set of tasks for him to prove his worth to her. If he could pass through these trials, then his love for her was true, and she could be happy.]”

He raised the teacup to his lips- pausing mostly for effect. “[#319177 And so, the princess set forth a series of seemingly impossible tasks. ‘[i I would like cloth made of the brightest sunlight- not yellow, not spun like gold, but pure sunlight- to make my wedding garb,]’ the princess requested as his first task. And the simple cowhearder set out to bring the princess’ wish a reality. Upon hearing this, her father grew furious with her for not accepting someone who seemed so willing to love her, but he was powerless against his daughter’s will, and so, he allowed her to have her fun.]

“[#319177 Of course, the man was a simple man, and had no idea where he’d find cloth made from sunlight. He had little money, and so he did what any man short on smarts or money might do: he turned to the gods to ask their help to win over the princess,]” A slender finger twirled around the pink strand of hair as he thought of where to go with his story. Perhaps he was enjoying it a little too much- more than he certainly imagined that he would enjoy telling a story. “[#319177 It took a long time, but Hikoboshi exchanged a favor with one of the nine sun gods, and he returned to his princess- sporting a cloth that illumed brighter than any light. It glowed bright like the sun, and there was no doubt that this cloth was indeed made of sunlight. The Princess was surprised, but wasted no time in giving him his second task,]”

En gazed over to Tadashi with a rather proud grin. He gestured to the other man. “[#319177 Why don’t you tell us what happened next, Tashi,]” It wasn’t a question, but more of a suggestion. En gave the other man a discrete wink as well as he passed off the tale. Though he’d like to finish the story he’d just come up with, he agreed that it might be more fun that everyone else add their input as well. ]

Qin leaned against the side of the building- arms crossed across her slender midsection. She had contemplated leaving, but what good would that do when she knew that they had a mission to continue? Something told her leaving would do them more harm than good. Not to mention that she had nowhere else to go if she left this group of people. Going back to where she’d come from was not an option at this point. ‘[#3AA8C1 [i Maybe I should alter my appearance a bit. It would keep people from recognizing me so easily,]]’ she thought to herself. Just a change of clothes wouldn’t be enough as that had been proven by the accusatory man.

She was pulled from her thoughts as the smaller brunette girl joined her outside. The silence between them was neither awkward nor comforting, but she honestly didn’t know what to say about the outburst that had occurred. Thankfully, it was Himeko who spoke up first. She hadn’t pried into Himeko’s life even after their first meeting because she knew that everyone was entitled to their own secrets. Though, hearing this from her was a bit of a surprise, it didn’t change Qin’s mind about her friend.

“[#3AA8C1 You’re much prettier than me. Outward beauty is only superficial. What you have is much deeper than that, and I honestly envy you more than I have any other woman I’ve met,]” She admitted finally after a brief lull in their exchange. “[#3AA8C1 I’m not saying all men are this way; please don’t let my cynicism keep you from pursuing a man if you desire one, but men enjoy perverting what is innocent. They enjoy taking that away from you until the point where you’re so bitter and cynical that no one will want you. Or at least, that’s been my experience.]” All she’d experienced in her life was people taking from he. Her innocence, her name, her agency to be her own person didn’t seem to matter to other people. Even friends she viewed with the utmost skepticism in fear that they too would take from her in some way even if she did not mean to act this way. Perhaps it was why she couldn't take someone like Tadashi seriously.

She took in the sight of the girl’s hands that were slowly changing to clawed paws rather than human hands. She'd been told about the girl's curse, but it still surprised her to actually see it. Qin reached over to take a light hold of Himeko's wrist- being careful of the claws. “[#3AA8C1 Calm down, Himeko. I know what he said about us, and I’m guilty of it as well, but you shouldn’t let people get to you. People like that take enjoyment out of seeing you squirm. Though, it’s mostly my fault. I thought I wouldn’t be recognized so far away, but I guess I was wrong.]” Qin sighed- turning her whole body now to face the other girl. “[#3AA8C1 I never lied about my past either. When we met, I told you I ran away, but I never told you why. That man from before frequented the compound where I ran away from. I lived in a red light district close to the capital. Where I lived was essentially a really expensive brothel, but we’re trained to play music, dance, and other art forms. We’re ranked not only by our outward appearance, but by our talents as well. If you can’t play music, dance, or hold a conversation, you’re not likely to make much money.]”

It was sad, but there were girls who lived there their whole lives and never repaid back their debt. Qin knew her debt was massive, but did her best to do what she could- even if it made her disgusted with herself to do it. “[#3AA8C1 When I was younger, my mother died, and my father had run out of money even though he was previously in the military. To make money, he told the madam of a tea house that he would give me to her for a large sum of money, and from the age of twelve to… well, now, I lived in the compound with the other girls that held a similar past as I did. My story isn’t necessarily rare. She took my name from me and gave me another one.Yao Zhenzhu is the name I was given by her, and a name I’d rather forget.]” Qin’s voice was quiet as she explained this. Despite there not being anyone else around, the last thing she wanted was someone to overhear them. She would explain this to the others at a later time when she knew it was a good time to do so. They were already distrustful of her, and so she'd let them think what they would for the time being. “[#3AA8C1 When we come of age, we can make more money by sleeping with the customers of the tea houses. The first time I ran away was the day I came of age. I was scared. Even though I saw this every day, it’s different when it happens to you. I was punished severely, and they added the money they had to refund to my debt. I ran to a nearby shrine. I suppose I angered the deity there as now I can’t even listen to the sound of stringed instruments. It sounds distorted and sour. For someone whose livelihood was music, it’s devastating.]” She rubbed her scaled shoulder with the hand that wasn’t touching Himeko’s hands. They both had constant reminderst that they'd fucked up.

“[#3AA8C1 I’m glad to hear you don’t think of me any differently, but I honestly wouldn’t blame you if you did. You’re free to hold any opinion of me after hearing this. I just want to break our curses so we can go back to living at least semi-normal lives.]” It was obvious that Qin didn’t have high hopes. Friendship would be nice, but most people didn’t like associating with people like her. Surely the others would hold negative opinions for a long time, but that didn't matter to her; only their end goal mattered.

“[#3AA8C1 I think I should cut my hair though. Only to make myself less recognizable, and make things easier on this group. When we leave here, of course just in case that man decides to follow us. I imagine the further away we go, the less that people will recognize me.]” There were many mixed feelings in her decision to cut off her light colored locks, but if cutting it short would solve their issues, then she would do whatever made it easier.]

He shook his head at the girl’s apology. “[#319177 I appreciate that you say that, but you really don’t need to apologize,]” He was grateful that she seemed not to hold any ill will toward him outwardly, but he still wouldn’t push his luck in offending her a second time. The last thing that He wanted was to make their traveling experience a miserable one. Even as much as she reminded En of his sister, he had to remember that she wasn’t, and she was more than capable of taking care of herself.

When alcohol was offered, En too refused it. He instead stuck to the tea in his cup. It was best to be sober in an unknown setting- especially if they’d have to leave the dry warmth of this eatery before long. As much as he wished they could stay inside, he knew that the hostess’ hospitality would only last so long, and she probably wouldn’t take too kindly to them if they loitered.

Opting for noodles rather than rice, the male was more than excited for the warm meal as he hadn’t had more than scraps for a long time. He opted for silence- listening to the others explain their own curses. He had to admit the gods had a weird sense of humor if they thought putting all of them in one place to work together was somehow a good idea. Deep down, En knew that they had been thrown together for a reason, but for now, he would focus on getting used to his rowdy companions.

“So, you are useless in a fight or near any slight injury,” Himeko’s words almost made the him laugh. He held it in, but only just. En cleared his throat, and attempted to return to a straight face- hiding his smile behind his teacup. He set his bowl down to fill it with noodles and vegetables once again as a man approached them.

“[+red I’ll prove it!]”

His eyebrow raised slightly in a questioning manner, but before he could ask exactly what the man was going to prove, he was already ranting drunkenly about the girl being someone he’d met before. She seemed to wear a face of discontent as she brushed aside his words so easily. The hair on the back of his neck prickled, and that was never a good sign. Seeing her so shaken left a bad taste in his mouth. The woman was normally so composed, and now it seemed like she was on edge. This outburst made him wonder if the rumors he’d heard about traveling around the northern part of the country had been true.

After Qin left the table, the man retreated back to his own table- glaring begrudgingly at them. He was seemingly a little defeated that he’d been unable to sway the rest of them into believing his story about having “bought her” once upon a time. It made En’s skin crawl at the thought of being paid for sex. Men like that reminded him of his youth and why his father was so adamant about teaching him and his sister how to protect themselves.

En nodded in agreement with Jun. Even if Qin was a prostitute, it wasn’t their business how she made her living. He had a lot of questions to ask the dragon girl, but he would wait until he knew her better to pry into her life. Curiosity killed the cat and all that he supposed. “[#319177 There are rumors that I’ve heard in my travels,]” He began. “[#319177 Rumors about girls being bought and sold like commodities just because their parents have run out of money. They would sell their daughters for large sums of money, and the people that buy them train them to be entertainers. Song, dance, calligraphy, and even sexual favors,]” They were technically escorts as Jun had put it, but they did more than just sex- not that he would get into technicalities with them as he was sure the history on such a subject would just bore them.

“[#319177 I wouldn’t mind if we taught him a lesson, but I think the best thing we can do for Qin is to give her a moment alone as well as the benefit of the doubt. I say we finish up here and find a place to rest for the night. We shouldn’t loiter,]” They were all in this together, and so it didn’t do well to dwell on these types of incidents.]]

[size15 “Oh I bet tons of women were jealous of you, Qin,”

Her words carried a hint of an implication that the Dragon woman didn’t know that she liked. She opted instead for a coy smile. She was rather distrusting of any compliment as they were more often than not backhanded and intimidating. Jun didn’t seem the type, but neither did any of the other women who’d offered her such compliments in the past. When jealousy sometimes meant sabotage of some sort from other courtesans, she’d rather not catch the envy of someone else. “[#3AA8C1 I’m sure the same could be said of you,]” Most of the women she knew would have killed for hair that long and shiny.

Qin was glad that the food had arrived so promptly. It drew her attention from her thoughts, and she decided that Jun’s compliment held no sense of malice, and that she shouldn’t be so distrustful of other women’s kind words. Whatever Tadashi had bribed the owner with had gotten them quite a feast. She had to say that she was quite impressed. It almost made her curious as to what exactly he’d paid with, but she could keep that curiosity at bay for the time being as there was no need to question this just yet.

Feeling small hands tug at her Hanfu, she gazed over at Himeko who seemed worried. A sigh fell from Qin’s mouth as she continued to speak- though this time in a lower tone so that the rest of the group didn’t hear their conversation as well. She had yet to tell the girl the details of why she’d left “home”- only that she’d run away, and they’d been fine to leave it at that. She knew that she’d have to tell Himeko eventually, and just hoped that it didn’t change the younger girl’s mind about her. “[#3AA8C1 Himeko, can we talk later about this in private? I think I owe you an explanation, but for now, yes let’s switch places.]” She agreed to switch the girl places, and quickly changed seats- seating herself in the corner where the Tiger girl had just sat.

Qin opted for a bowl of rice and a couple of the dumplings filled with meat. Even though she could eat more, she was a lady, and more so than that, she was in front of a fairly large group of people. It was best to keep her table manners rather than look like she didn’t have any.

“[#3AA8C1 Hm],” She mused- her mouth full of rice as she was addressed. She placed the bowl down and her chopsticks on top before turning slightly in her seat. “[#3AA8C1 No, I’m from a village to the north. Close to the capital, but not quite in it. My parents mostly traveled around China collecting folk songs and poetry. Despite his political training, my father enjoyed traveling more, and so we were never that well off,]” She mused- thinking back to her earlier childhood. “[#3AA8C1 When I was about seven, we moved close to the capital. I suppose I’ve picked up a few fashion tips from the girls who lived around me. I lived in a place where you either were someone beautiful and talented or you were not, so I’ve adapted to the competitive atmosphere,]” The other women were akin to sharks in the water, and she knew that if they knew they could get ahead of anyone, they wouldn’t hesitate to do it. “[#3AA8C1 I wish that I could tell you that I am more talented with music than fashion, but I’m afraid I cannot prove my words currently.]”

She listened to Tadashi speak about their living arrangements. She had no qualms with sharing one room with them as she knew it would be a tight squeeze on their monetary situation. They didn’t have time to work steady jobs to have an influx of money. As long as there was a proper place to sleep, then she wouldn't mind in the least.

Qin was halfway into a second bowl of rice topped with spicy beef when a drunken commotion came from across the eatery. A man slurring his speech was making his way across the room toward their group. Amber colored eyes refused to meet his gaze- hoping that he’d just leave them be and not cause a scene. She also hoped that it wasn’t her that he was ambling toward them for, but she already knew from Himeko’s words that he’d recognized her.

“[+red I’ll prove it,]” he slurred. “[+red Lying bunch of no good kids. Ain’t no one in this group married. And the only sisters you know is that flock of floozies, ain’t that right,]” he slung his arm around Qin’s shoulder- attempting to pull her close to him. Though she brushed his hand away. This only seemed to upset him further, but she couldn’t be bothered to care about his anger in her level of discomfort. He made her skin crawl now just as much as he did the first time that she’d seen him. She opted for silence until she found her voice.

“[#3AA8C1 Don’t you know it’s wrong to grope a lady- much less one you don’t know?]” She finally spoke- setting the now empty bowl on the table. “[#3AA8C1 Maybe you’ve confused us with people who are similar-]”

“[+red Hah! Lady, now that’s a good one,]” He laughed loudly. “[+red Last time I checked real ladies didn’t make their living in a whorehouse. It’s the young ones that are the most expensive. Think I even bought you an expensive jade comb if I remember. I think I caught her name was Zhenzhu. Isn’t that you?]” He let out a laugh as he continued to drink from the container of alcohol he’d carried with him. “[+red And your friend here, I heard she turned into a monster on her real wedding day!]” He gestured to Himeko.

There wasn’t a word to describe her embarrassment. Her fingernails bit lightly into her palms and her knuckles were white as she held herself back from stabbing him with her chopsticks- though they hardly made good weapons. “[#3AA8C1 My name is Sun Qin- not Zhenzhu,]” It wasn’t a lie technically. She was used to dealing with people like this despite her anger. “[#3AA8C1 I’m just a peasant girl; I’ve got nothing expensive in the way of combs or jewelry or clothing. Certainly not from you.]” She forced herself to meet his gaze- an ornery smile pulled at the corner of her lips. “[#3AA8C1 Now, if you don’t mind, my friends and I are eating. You can accuse me as you like, but I would greatly appreciate if you left. Them. Out.]” The last three words in her sentence were staccato- driven home to make a point in hopes that he’d just get bored of them and leave.

He refused to leave them, and continued on about how their group was lying. Qin tuned him out as she stood from her seat and left the table. The longer that she sat there, the harder it would be. She left the eatery and stood outside underneath the awning so that she wouldn’t get wet in the rain that continued to drizzle from the sky. Her shoulder itched as the scaled patch grew underneath her clothing, and her fingers moved to rub against the growing spot of scales. She’d have to wear long sleeves if she kept this up. Hopefully, everyone would simply ignore the exchange, and she could talk about this with Himeko at a later time away from everyone else. If they were curious, then she might answer their questions, but she would rather not talk about her past with virtual strangers just yet. ]]
