"I would agree that sparring would be good but let's see what Marcino has to say. He's supposedly one of the toughest snipers in an entire nation. If someone with that experience is at our beck, and call so to speak we should hear him out. I trust you're strong Auriel but I'd like to have a second opinion on the matter." Cole told her as the shield hero went his own way he told Auriel to follow him. "I've also met some contacts I'd like to meet later when I went out looking for a place to sleep. Ended up going to the same place the big guy went to. It's nice enough and when the people recognized me as the Sword Hero they gave me a free room. Rather nice of them all things considered." Cole told Auriel as he walked to the door after bowing to the king and giving him a proper goodbye.
Cole walked through the castle, and then out of it ending up on the streets of the city where he went along the pathways, and all the guarded checkpoints of the city. The city was full of citizens going about their lives selling goods, and doing chores. Many people stopped to gawk at Cole in specific as he waved to them. "I must admit...I'm not use to this attention, and I am certainly not use to it being positive." Cole confided in Auriel as he walked through the streets. He patted his iron armor adjusting it slightly it was costly but not too much so. His blue cape that flowed out from his back was a bit fancy but he got it at a store when he bought a second set of clothes. It cost him a penny but it made him look cool, and regal which is why he picked it. "I hope you're fine with me I know you wanted to join with the spear. But looks like he left you out in the dust like the Bow Hero did us. I'll do my best to help you get stronger so help me do the same." Cole told her as they arrived at the tavern.
Its robust, and loud hall was heard from inside as Cole entered a large dark skinned man with an eye patch, and rough clothes called out to him. The barkeeper had been friendly to him when he arrived. "Hey kid how you doin'?" the keeper asked as Cole nodded, "I'm fine just taking it one step at a time." Cole told him as he went over to the corner where Marcino sat. Large scars were visible on his chest now, his intricate bow was sat to the side of him, and his dark hair was messy. A large keg of beer sat next to him as he clicked his fingers together. "Hey rookies! On me!" Marcino said as Cole walked over and sat down at one of the chairs on the lone table Marcino sat at. "What about the shield?" Marcino asked as Cole informed him that new shield hero was going to get some armor, and come back to meet them here. He told them to wait and about five minutes later in came Fer. "Hey kid over here come on and sit down we got some stuff to talk about!"
