One one hand Hiroto was glad to be away from the place that didn't seem too friendly at all. The manor where this girl was detained and where he had been so close to being captured.
Hamaguchi's words echoed in his head, ringing out to him and making one thing very clear. He had to find a healer, one that would actually be willing to help him and Hamaguchi out. But even though the concept of finding a healer seemed like a simpler task he knew that it wouldn't be, he wasn't even sure where to start. The boy took a look at his surroundings as he kept the neko girl in his arms, noticing some vendors selling their various wares but still feeling a bit.. worried.
He didn't want to have the girl get recaptured along with him at the moment, and so he didn't want to just charge into the open arms of someone that would do something like that. But with his very little knowledge of the world around him he had no idea if he was doing the right thing. And that was what bothered him the most. Well.. come on Hiroto. This girl needs me, so get back into shape and try to do something!
After looking around he noticed that there was a store that creatures of all types seemed to pass by, and so with Hamaguchi in his arms he then proceeded to walk there to ask for some help. Upon approaching the clerk's table he asked, "Is there any way I can get a healer-"
The clerk replied, "Do ya have any money on ya to pay up?"
Hiroto replied earnestly, "Well you see, it's a bit complicated-"
The male snorted at him before saying, "If ya got no coin to pay then ya got no healer, scram deadbeat. And don't be sniffin your nose around here again without some money ya hear me?"
Hiroto replied with a confused face as he took a small step back, "But sir I-.."
The shopkeeper replied, "No excuses get outta here!"
Leaving him no other choice Hiroto backed out of the store that he had entered, trying to find some idea of where he could get a healer for the neko girl. No matter what, he wanted to make sure that she was all healed up.. he had come this far and so he was invested in making sure that he saw his mission through to the end. He called out, "Healer, someone.. anyone.. help me please. I don't have any money to pay with but this girl needs help, I promise I'll find the money to pay with later."
It wasn't like Hiroto wasn't trying his hardest, but at first all he got was absolutely nothing. Many creatures passed by without giving him a glance, going about with their regular business since they didn't have the time to worry about him. The boy gulped but he kept his eyes glued to his surroundings, knowing that he would be glad to pay back when he had the chance to. Surely he had been denied once, but somewhere out there maybe there was someone good enough to help out.
