Yup, that was a book in his already hurting nose alright. It certainly hurt like hell, like his nose already was aching and a kick from her dainty legs would do jack shit against him, but the book just made it worse. Oh yeah, shit. He forgot that she had an aversion to close contact with people for, well, obvious reasons. But man, he had to commend her for the timing on that kick; if it was on purpose then she may have some talent for martial arts and if not, her luck is pretty incredible. He mused on that thought as he stood up and made some space for the lass, bowing his head in apology though he could feel her gaze burning into his skull. Yup, she was completely pissed off. "Well if you don't need anything else from me, then I won't make myself more a bother then."
She had made it a point that she did not want his help and who was he to not oblige even when she looked like a fish caught in a net?
Well, he was going to leave, but Adelyn finally understood that she was not exactly in a situation where she could tell him that she did not need his help. At least she was going to let him help without the threat of castration, like she could anyway."Alright, let's get you out of this mess."
It really did take all of his strength to not break into laughing; he had never seen anyone do that to themselves before and really, it was a sight to behold. He knelt down and began to process of getting her out of her bind until all the ropes were all laying around on the ground. "I'll keep this between us. No need to give you a harder time."
Oh boy, even through this violent he could hear the captain's mighty voice. It looked like there was something going and on they were missing it. Hopefully he would not get an earful for being late, again."Alright, let's get going. Whatever it is, we should not miss it."
Huangdi said with a far more sterner tone than he had been using previously. Adelyn was apart of this crew, not a guest, so she had to come along and take part in whatever Ragnar was going on about, unless the man was drunk again. In that case he should get her away from him as quickly as possible.
He made sure that Adelyn stuck close by to him when they had arrived back into the barracks for the meeting and...god fucking dammit. They just had to arrive at the point where they were decrying the nobles of Keter, the place that Adelyn used to live. He glanced down to her and said, "Hold your tongue Adelyn. You'll have your chance later."
Right now, they just had to listen to what the mission was and what a mission it will be! When was the last time that they had pulled a daring stunt like this? If it was not for the fact that he had a Adelyn right next to him he would have shown his excitement too though with all that had happened with her and the crew's declarations, it really would have been in poor taste.
Of course Laz would be taking part of this mission. He was excellent at gliding and he certainly had a knack for fighting if things get down to it though he hoped that his student could just keep it as a stealth mission for as long as possible. However, as soon as he heard that Adelyn was to work with Laz, Huangdi nearly yelled out in objection though he knew trying to convince Ragnar would have been a useless effort and there must have been a reason for this decision. Still, perhaps he could speak to him when he meets him in an hour's time.
For now, he should at least meet with Sania and Mona though he couldn't just leave Adelyn there. "Hey Adelyn, I'm going to meet up with Sania and Mona. Want to come with?"
Really, he hoped that she would say yes so that she would be able to take her mind off the things that been said rather than letting it stew silently by herself. With or without her, he went over to his two teammates for the mission and flashed a grin. "Hey, Mona, Sania. I see you guys got the disruptor working again!"@Leslie Hall@Lunarlord34@Inkarnate
