The young woman thankfully nodded her head at the man who held the door open for her. Elysia felt her foot catch on the doorway but thankfully she caught herself. She was so tired. Why had she come out today? She took a few deep breaths and rapidly blinked her eyes to shake the dreariness away. When she refocused her vision, the man who had opened the door for her was standing there with a concerned expression. Maneuvering the things in her hands she used her phone to let him know she was alright. Just terribly tired.

Soon leaving the awkward conversation Elysia made her way through the halls to where her new group was meeting. She could see all but Kyle. Well, hopefully, he would arrive soon. Otherwise, the coffee she had gotten for him would get cold. Approaching the growing number of students she waved and held up a notecard she had prepared earlier. *I got everyone something to drink. I got mostly generic drinks so sorry if there aren't any you like.*

It was then that she noticed they were all still standing outside the classroom. That was odd. Was the TA not here yet? Puzzled she precariously balanced the coffee's again and using her phone. "Did she say she would be late?"

Elysia gathered her things after the conversation was seemingly over. She had a lot to think about. And she needed to study the notes from today's class. She purchased another coffee before leaving knowing that no matter what, she was gonna crash from sleepiness despite how much caffeine she consumes. Might as well get some help to stay awake long enough to study.

At home sitting at her desk, she felt her eyes becoming droopy as she looked over the notes. In order to stay awake, she decided to copy what she was reading while also occasionally looking at the textbook. Eventually, this devolved into ignoring the notes and taking an even closer and more critical look at the book about the various things that started to seem more real. She took out her laptop and began doing even more research on the details and terms that stuck out to her. She even studied up on the person who wrote the textbook and looked at the various sources mentioned. She had become so lost at what she was doing that when she looked at the clock she saw it was almost 3 AM. She had entirely lost track of time, but somehow she had fought off the grogginess for the time

However, as if on cue she felt her eyes closing heavy as she laid her head down on her desk. The buzzing of her phone caused the young woman to stir. Grabbing it she looked at the group chat. While she wasn't having dreams she was certainly not happy with waking up to a weird drawing. She stretched as she sat upright. The desk was not a good place to sleep. Looking at the new drawing which she had apparently drooled a little bit on, she was extremely confused. It was a picture of the TA in an outfit that resembled a maestro. Elysia's brain felt like it was melting. What on earth does this even mean. She grabbed her head and rested it down against the desk and groaned. She was going nuts. At least she had a lead finally but what did any of this mean. She still had no idea why she was drawing these things while sleeping. Maybe it was these drawings that kept her from having the weird dreams.

Taking a picture of the drawing she sent it to the group chat, "New drawing this morning. Does this mean anything to anyone?" Feeling her stomach rumble she decides to do her morning routine and eat as she waited for some form of response.

Well, she honestly should have expected someone to get the group to introduce themselves like this was a kid group. Should've realized that Kav was the kind of person to do this. She decided to use this as an opportunity to figure out what kind of people they all were. Kav obviously went first but she already knew plenty well what kind of person he was. Next was the most recent addition. ChurchGirl. She seemed refined and dignified, albeit a little rigged. Way too poised for this in Sam's opinion but a dedicated healer would certainly be useful. Next to speak up was the boss lady herself. She was definitely smart but felt very haughty with how she talked herself up. Being a lady knight of some fancy rich-born people isn't that high of esteem to flaunt in front of others. Her knowledge of curses and the like though? That certainly was something to put her in high regard. Still being so boastful about it irritated Sam.

The next to make their presence known was the younger female mage. Sam had expected the girl to go on a full monologue like an actor. But she kept it quick and precise. Sam found that respectable. She even seemed mostly open about why she was going. Samara couldn't fault her for that but the girl's lack of experience greatly worried the young archer. The one-armed beast of a woman introduced herself next. Pretty blunt and straightforward. She also looks as powerful as her voice and words seemed to indicate. The guy who seemed obsessed with his books gave an even shorter introduction. Book types tended to be like that from her experience.

Next was the skilled 'lancer'. He seemed to be somewhat put off his game by Ashley's comment. It was quite funny to watch this man struggle. She wanted to laugh but deigned not to make jokes about these people at least until they are no longer on the boat. She decided to finally speak up, "Names Samara. Call me that, Sam, or whatever you feel like. I don't really care that much. I'm skilled with a bow and I have a few dubious talents that I doubt most of you would have. Don't ask my age because I don't know and I'm in it for the money like Margot. Pleasure doing business with you all. I'm going to find a corner to sit in before the waves start messing with the boat." She then walked towards the edge of the boat and sat with her back to the railing.

As they boarded the boat Sam looked around. Man, if they made it out of port they would be lucky. She began looking around the topside of the boat when Kav approached her again. She was about to respond when younger mage girl approached them. Sam slowly shook her head, "While I won't try and stop you I don't necessarily think something like that would be a good idea. We are going to set sail soon and if we get attacked by other adventurers we'll need everyone ready, and if my stomach starts acting up on the ride I don't really want to throw drugs in the mix. But you guys do you." She gave Kav a light pat on the shoulder, "I'm going to go talk to older mage lady. It's looking like she's going to be leading this party so I'm gonna tell her what I can do before the waves put me out of commission. Whatever you do just don't overdo it." With that she walked away from the two towards Ashley, "Hey boss lady. Thought maybe you wanted to know a little about what Kav and I can do before we set off."

Utter confusion. That was the state Sam found herself in. They were simply walking to the docks and Kav had somehow lost his shirt, gained a shiner, and carried a bag of candy. It took way too much brainpower to try and understand his antics at times. Over at a different boat, her attention caught onto tablehopper from earlier. That ship was absolutely dreadful. The smell wasn't a big issue to her as she had smelled many horrid things through her life on the streets. A couple of full buckets discarded into a closet is definitely one of the worst. But looking at the boat she was unsure if it could even make it to Irinoth in perfect conditions.

She was about to question Kav about his current lack of a shirt when the younger female mage piped up in a weird speech about herself and how she was great. Sam just stared at the woman with a look of complete incredulity. The one-armed axe woman then suggested a battle between their mages which while Sam was interested in watching she was unsure if this was the best place to do so. But then the younger mage, quicker than a spooked cat, spewed out a flood of words to get out of it. If it wasn't for the fact that they would soon be on a boat with this person heading towards a dangerous place she would have laughed. What are with these people? The most normal person here is the woman knight.

Thankfully, Kav interjected at just the right time to distract Sam from breaking her own mind thinking of the oddness of this group. Only for the rambling words to confuse her even more. Her head started to spin listening to him spew out various facts at her about ships. "Kav, Kav, Kav. Please slow down. I'm not a boat expert like you. I only know how to stowaway on one. But whatever boat we get on we aren't going to steal anything until we learn more about these people." Responded Sam as she nodded her head towards the others. "And if while we're checking out the boat they start pulling out I'll have to head up top. Since we're allowed on this boat we can roam freely and I'd rather be up top when the motion sickness hits me." Sam visibly cringed remember her first time on a boat. She had hidden in a barrel below deck. Sam had no idea that her stomach was incompatible with being on open waters. What made it worse was that her hidey-hole had tipped over at one point causing her stomach to do both figurative and essentially literal flips as she rolled around in the barrel. Let's just say that smell is towards the top of the worst things she has smelled.

Samara calmly walked back to the bar to watch the fight continue. There were some impressive individuals. Obviously, the one-armed woman seemed fairly powerful and she had noticed how she was the only one who noticed what she was doing in that crowd. The well-dressed moody looking man near her had entered the fray and knocked one guy out in a single punch. Her attention was drawn to the two women next to her that the man had been talking to. They were both apparently mages. This piqued her interest. Mages could be quite powerful. If she could get in the good graces of one that'd be really nice. She looked back over to their companion who seemed to be speaking to the one-armed woman. But her attention was ripped away from whatever they were saying as she saw the guy she'd told she would join launch himself out the window like a madman.

Ok yeah, nevermind joining him. If he was the kind of person to literally throw logic along with himself out the window, Sam had no intention of staking her or Kav's safety anywhere near him. She was debating whether she should find him to tell him that she was rescinding her offer of helping or just ignoring him if he brought it up. Annoyingly though, Kav decided to go outside to follow the Jumpy Blonde. She groaned at the idea of going to find that guy. But she couldn't leave Kav to go alone with him to get himself killed.

Before Sam could leave though the fight was soon ended by a few knights entering the building. The older mage rushed towards the leader. The whole act played up by the nobleish looking woman was quite good. It was obvious to Sam that the woman knew exactly how to play that man. She couldn't exactly tell what the relationship was but she somehow had all those knights wrapped around her finger. She lingered a little longer to listen to this impressive group that was gathering. She was happy she chose to stay and listened as she soon gathered that these people seemed like they may be setting out to journey to Irinoth. Her mind was immediately made up. One crazy mage versus two who also had two very strong people? Yeah, that wasn't a hard choice.

Leaving the tavern she quickly tracked down Kav only to see the mad mage getting up from a pile of hay. A strong look of annoyance flooded her face as she listened to him talk. Battle strategy? Really. Sam had a hard time believing that the guy she was looking at would participate in any kind of combat. Before Kav could walk off following him Sam grabbed him by the shoulder. Whispering "Look, I know we both said we'd go with him but just inside the tavern a much stronger and able-minded group is about to set out to Irinoth. We're going with them. I am not dealing with someone crazier than you. Come on they are heading towards the port."

She then jogged past Jumpy Blonde and Kav in order to catch up with the other group. When she reached them she found the knight trying to commandeer the Santa Lyrica. Sam guessed that the nobleish mage woman had put him up to it? She chuckled to herself when the man said that it was impossible to stow away on his boat. She knew that wasn't the case, but admitting that near a few knights likely wouldn't be a good idea. Then the woman in charge turned to the group and asked about the tablehopper. She mentally groaned before speaking up. "He flew through the window into a pile of hay. I went past him on my way here. Anyway, names Samara. I overheard you guys were planning to go to Irinoth. My friend Kavius and I were planning on joining tablehopper but y'all seem like better prospects."

This was beginning to get quite frustrating. The fuzzy feeling in her head was finally starting to subside but she wasn't finding anything that was exactly useful in the book which was supposed to be about the kinds of things they were experiencing now. But to give the writers of this text the benefit of the doubt, now that she was looking at the words with the thought in mind that it was real and was happening to her and those sitting at the table, it felt all so surreal. The main thought that sprung up in Elysia's head was her art. Not the ones from when she sleeps but her normal artwork. She'd never seen them as all that special but maybe what the book says about a 'knack' has something to do with why everyone always seems to enjoy her works so much.

She felt an impulse to ask the group at large a question. As she put her textbook away Elysia listened to what they were saying trying to gather what they may have been talking about. Apparently, they were going to talk to the TA soon? She wasn't exactly sure what they could get out of her but maybe she was more into this stuff past what the book said? Either way at the mention of going to the gym the young woman shook her head. pulling out her phone, "I've never felt comfortable at gyms. I do have question." She then quickly typed out her question so as to not hold up the conversation too long. It, unfortunately, had a little lead up so it took her a bit and she began to get a bit red hoping they weren't just staring at her waiting. "Remember how the book mentions witches having knacks. Like natural talents. Have any of you experienced anything magical looking back on your life?"

Yeah, getting Kavius drunk was one of the easiest ways to control him. He'd eventually pass out so she could go do whatever she wanted without him getting himself in trouble. It was also just downright funny and good practice. Ever since they started traveling together any new idea for a game or con she'd use him as a test subject. Although, despite how willing he can be for these tests sometimes it doesn't exactly help her to know if it'd trick some of the smarter people out there.

A snort of amusement along with an eye-roll came from Samara when Kav pretended that they were fancy. Anyone else and she'd likely try to knock their head off. Kav though was just an idiot. She took in a long deep breath of the vaguely familiar room. She was ecstatic. She'd finally get a chance to be an actual patron here. It wasn't just the alcoholic coffee she wanted to try. Now she didn't look like a street rat. Well, not as much as she used to so they would likely serve her. She began to walk towards the bar when her attention was drawn to a table where some guy was making a declaration of needing companionship. Well, that was oddly coincidental. But the fact that he was standing on the table to do this gave her pause and made her cringe a bit.

Unless there were no other options Sam was against joining Blondie. However, before she could continue towards the bar she felt her wrist be grabbed and lifted into the air. That made her annoyed. The fact that they didn't even discuss it made her mad. But, she promised herself she wouldn't hit him. He had a knack for making her mad somehow. So she was trying hard to not get angry. Ah screw it, she thought to herself and stepped hard on his toes. She didn't hit him so the promise was kept.

The young woman yanked her hand from Kavius and walked towards the bar when another loud incident occurred. The commotion to the side of the room drew Sam's attention. That seemed like a bad situation and she felt her hands slowly move towards her bow and quiver. When she saw how easily the woman was dealing with the varmints, the young archer moved her hands back to their natural place and lightly snickered. She focused on the bar. No more distractions. She was going to use her ill-gotten gains to procure a delectable treat. Just as she reached the bar the fight increased heavily in intensity breaking out across a large section of the place. The bartender who was just about to serve her said, "Sorry, miss. I need to go get my boss about that mess." and he begrudgingly pointed at the large fight.

It may be a little melodramatic, but Samara felt as if her dreams had been dashed. For years she had been told by the older kids that the stuff you could get from this bar was the best in the city. Then when she became old enough to come here the city had begun cracking down on the street rats even harder. Then she was run out of town and the first time, FIRST TIME, she finds herself back here in the perfect opportunity to purchase some of the mana called 'Macaron' a fight breaks out in the tavern forcing all the workers to have to deal with it.

Screw not getting angry. These morons were gonna pay. Literally. Cracking her knuckles the nimble thief edged her way towards the fight. With practiced ease, she moved through, in, and around the crowd of brawlers. All the while slipping her hand into any coin purse she could see and procured quite a hefty sum. By the time she finished, she had to take a whole coin purse as well to carry it all. Exiting the brawl without a punch received or thrown, Samara had a content smile as she walked towards the man on the table. "Hey. I do indeed want to go on that adventure. So, I'll help you with my bow."

The young archer pinched the bridge of her nose letting out an audible sigh. That 'job' was a total farce. She couldn't believe she let herself think for a second some noble would have the decency to at least thank them for retrieving an heirloom of their lost son. "Can we not talk about Lord Dungbeetle or whatever his name was? That whole situation made absolutely no sense." It had maybe been a few weeks ago but Samara was still pissed. She did chuckle though as she put her hand in one of her pouches. She didn't take much from the prick but she got more than what the original offer was.

But alas, the past is the past, and the present only happens once. She did have to admit that Kav sounded smart for a change. Instantly hopping into the task would likely not be for the best. Finding companions was more important right now than getting a seat on a ship. "There are a few taverns nearby. Most of them sell swill and only have your typical guy who thinks drinking is a day job. There is one just through the crowd over there with some of the good stuff." Sam looked right at Kavius giving him a devious grin. "Say, you ever had Matokan Coffee? If you haven't it's got the kind of kick you wouldn't expect. Follow me! Just remember that if they let ya have some only drink one cup."

Samara then grabbed Kav by the wrist to lead him through the crowd of mercs, soldiers, and adventurers. She led him through to the other side then pointed to the tavern in question. "Best tavern in this part of the city. The people who really know how things work tend to go there. Was never allowed to try out any of the merchandise before but couldn't hurt to try." Sam started walking towards the tavern. She vaguely remembered the last time she tried going there a noble had seen her and verbally berated her till the majority of the building was laughing her out. She had the last laugh though as later that night she'd pick his pockets clean when going home for the night. She let out a content sigh as memories of the city were flooding back around every corner.

Why were they here? Sam didn't want to be in this city. It had been so long since she had been here but the place was still filled with rotten people. Even more so now that people had been run out of there homes. But she had seen into the eyes of some of those refugees a few days ago and they seemed to be making a mental turning point in there lives. She did want to laugh but restrained herself at the mention of the citizens offering shelter to the refugees. The people here didn't have room in their hearts for starving children so the fact that they'd be forced to share their homes with newly homeless strangers was a nice thought to her. She believed that if the shoe was on the other foot the situation would likely be exactly the same. The bad part about this was that it'd be harder for the street rats and homeless people in the city to get food or money to live. No one was to likely to offer them a place to stay and that pissed her off.

Partially because of that but also somewhat because of the large bounty that cam with doing the task, Samara felt a strong desire to give it a go. If she did this job she'd be entitled to a large sum. Using that she'd easily be able to help all the homeless and parentless children in the city. Maybe even the island. However she'd have to split the money equally with any others she worked with. Maybe Kavius would want to do this as well? She looked over towards him and saw how eager he looked. Seemed that they may be on the same page for a change. The teenager(?), still unsure as she doesn't know her exact birthdate but that didn't matter, smiled at her partner in battle, "It's just scouting, Kav. But that money is very tempting. I guess if we're doing this I need a bit more practice. When you're done shouting to the world let's go see if we can find a ride?"
