"Chomp!"

lionsheir:

My muse is chowing down on a box of pocky and your muse seems to have a sudden craving for the chocolate covered treat! (or perhaps my muses’ lips?~) Send “Chomp!” for my muse’s reaction to yours biting the other end of the pocky stick!

Valen bit off part of the stick of pocky and ate it before scratching the back of his head as he grabbed another stick and held it out to her. “You could have just said you wanted one.”

"If I did, then I would have gotten a whole one instead of just a taste." Riful looked like she was thinking "It tasted different than I expected. I don’t think I want another taste."

"You’re right, this is the slums of Hanel. It’s the absolute worst part. Strange, is it not? Most towns would have slums a thousand times worse, but Hanel is blessed by living under the queen of monsters. It doesn’t know war or bandits. Nobody would dare attack this place." 

Hanel was Riful’s town. It was close there where her home town from three hundred years ago was. Because of this, she had made it her own personal hunting ground. She considered it both revenge and protection. No other monsters in the area could defeat her in battle, so they wouldn’t try to hunt here.

When she looked to the boy, Riful was quite surprised to realize that he was giving off an odd power. She sensed that much, but it wasn’t the same as something from her homeland. The creature of the abyss frowned. What an odd thing he was…

"If your friends are still around, they probably went to the centre of the town, by the statue of the twin goddess. That’s a common meeting place. I can show you there, if you’d like. I simply ask your name in return."

She showed the initiative to help him. She’s nice. What a relief. Confrontations were what he wanted to avoid the most. But still, the black rukh that were dancing around her sent alarm down his gut. He knew he should not let his guard down. But he also should not show open hostility, because that would bring about confrontation. As long as she was willing to be kind, Aladdin would respond in kind,

”My name is Aladdin. I’m a traveler. It’s nice to meet you, miss!” He offered her a polite grin, before bowing curtly. “It would be nice if you could take me there, if it’s not too much trouble, but I really doubt my friends would be there.” They were kind of avoiding the main roads, as Al-Thamen was everywhere. Even in the most unscrupulous of places.

”Still, it’s worth a shot… Which way should we go, miss?” He tilted his head at the question as he eyed her with expectation. Ah, of course, before he forgot. “I forgot to ask, may I also have your name?” If they were going to be together for a while, they might at least get to know one another.

Riful raised a brow. She was a little confused as to why he didn’t think his friends would be there. That was where everyone would go. Hanel was one of the few towns that still had statues of Clare and Teresa. They were disappearing as Rabona’s religion spread across the island. The statue was one of the nicer ones too. Maybe they were from Rabona and frowned on such things.

"I can help you try to find them, but unless you have a clue as to where they were going, I won’t be able to help you very much." Riful gestured for him to follow her she tried to leave the slums. There was a nasty smell here. Someone was trying to hide a corpse, it seemed. "I’ll get you to the main area. From there I can get you to any area of the town I know Hanel fairly well."

The abyssal one looked back to him. It was nice to have one as small as her around Maybe she could figure out what he was soon as well. “My name is Riful. It’s nice to meet you, traveller Aladdin. Can I ask you why you wanted to travel all the way up here? Are you just going to look around, or are you here for a specific reason.”

"So, instead of helping you, they ran off the moment they saw what was happening?"

Phew. The Prince was happy she diverted his sword just then. Riful was his friend after all, he didn’t really want to hurt her. Observing her next moves, he stepped to the left in hopes of not being struck as badly. His sword was moved to hover over and try to push her practice sword away. 

Riful pressed against his blade, using more of her strength than she should to continue her movement. She hated the thought of being over powered. The abyssal one was fairly close to smacking him with the sword when she drew back., She needed to remember she was just playing. Riful moved back a bit to wait for him to make a move.

Taking a deep breath, he tried to focus as he thought up what to do next. After she moved back, he ducked low and attempted to sweep her off her feet with a soft kick. However, luck wasn’t on his side and he ended up tripping on top of her. His face landing in the worst possible location—her breasts.

It took a moment for him to realize what happened. Once he figured it out, he jumped up and ran across the room as if he were Guy around a woman. 

Gulping, he blushed furiously. “I—I…” He paused to see if he could get his words together. “I’m so sorry, I-I didn’t me-mean for that to happen…”

Riful was ready to try and dodge his sweep, but it didn’t seem to work out right. She was too disappointed in him to even try to move away. She let him crash into her. Her expression was not a very happy one, but it was more about his clumsiness. Had this boy really been training for ten years?

His reaction to this surprised her though Riful pushed herself up and raised a brow It took her a few seconds to figure out what he though he had done wrong.

"It’s fine, Valen. I don’t mind. You didn’t mean to, and hey, it’s not like I care much about that area." She pushed herself back up to her feet and tapped her practice sword on the ground. "Is that it for the day?"

"Does this mean you will stop bothering me?"

"No! It means you will die!"

"That’s not very likely."

"It felt good to me," Elise replied as she shakily got to her legs. "Well…I’ve had enough…Thanks though…"

"You’re welcome. Fight me again soon. It will be fun." Riful flopped onto her back. "You can walk out on your own, right?"

"Y-Yeah, I’m fine," Elise muttered and began to walk away with a slight limp. "Have a good day…Riful."

Riful considered helping her but decided not to. Elise could take care of herself. She closed her eyes gently. “Fist fights are so boring…”

"And yet you look about a year older than me," Elise remarked, placing her mask back on. Soon after, looking like she was adjusting the mask, she finished the goal and went to punch Riful in the gut.

Riful didn’t even react to that. She continued to sit there. Her eyes rolled in exasperation. “Don’t be cheap. You’re being a silly person.”

"What’s wrong with being cheap? As long as you get your target you may have to break some rules…"

"That’s true, but you should never be cheap when you are doing useless thinks. I don’t feel any pain anymore."

"You could kill me right now if you wanted to…Why aren’t you?"

"I could kill you any time. That’s not my goal. I enjoy strange things. The world is too boring. I do need some source of entertainment."

"So I’m a strange thing to you? That’s nice…" Elise commented to herself and sat up on her knees at last, slowly removing her mask and cleaning it with a sleeve.

"Of course you are. You go against my expectations constantly. Wouldn’t you find such a thing entertaining?" Riful gave a little smile. "Life gets boring after a few hundred years."
