The road less traveled

Post by chasingjustice on Fri Aug 15, 2014 12:01 am



Justin smiled and packed his belongings back into the saddle bag. He placed the rains back over Krios's head, placed a hand onto the wedge of his saddle, settled one foot into the stirrup and pulled himself up. Gently he lowered himself into the saddle and took a firm grasp of the reins as Krios swung his head up and pranced in a small circle. It was time to move on. Hanzo quickly came to his feet and barked happily.

Justin nodded at the merchant. "Krotan thanks you kind sir. I also thank you. I wish good fortune!" With that said, Justin pressed into Krios's urging him forward. He pranced down the cobble stone rode. It wasn't long before they reached the pillars of the gate. Without looking back he rode through them. The black sable shephard pranced in the tall grass and did what dogs do. Justin pushed Krios into a canter. The dirt beneath his hooves gave way to his weight as he extended his stride into a full run. A large dark shadow passed through the fields and across Justin and Krios.

"She moved on without you?" Samba asked faintly.

"Apparently she wasn't happy with the thought of having us there." He chuckled in return. Samba flew ahead leading the way. The road forked to the left and to the right. The right lead straight to a heavily wooden area. The ora was dark and obviously belonged to the enchanted forest the merchant spoke of. As much as it drew him in, he refused temptation. The man did not have a death sentence. Gently pulling the reign to the right, Krios veered in the direction of the ocean.

Justin was certain there would be many fishing villages between here and his destination. He silently made an agreement with himself. He would ride through four and then stop at the fifth. At this time the ocean wasn't visible, yet the smell of salt water filled the air and stung his eyes. The forest to his left was thick and lush, the beach that hugged the cliff was a gleaming white. Even after the ocean licked the shore line. He slowed Krios down to a trot as he approached the fifth village. Looking over his shoulder to the right, towards the ocean he smirked as Samba exposed his inner child. Gracefully he flew close enough to the water to drop a claw into the crashing waives. Occasionally going after a seagull.

The village smelt of fish, but what was to be expected of a small fishing village. People here did not seem as surprised to see him as they were in the city. He drew little attention. However that could be partially due to the storm that had caught up to him from when he left the city. Rain drizzled upon his shoulders. Looking up at the sky seemed to have given it an open invitation to open its flood gates. The rain came down with a vengeance.

Justin looked ahead as far as the curtain of rainfall allowed him. Something, a stable, a manor, or even....a pub. The candles inside the pub were bright and an open invitation to anyone who may find themselves out in this down poor. The large awning allowed enough cover for Krios to stand beneath, although his rear end would be exposed. Justin dismounted and quickly tied him up. He rubbed his neck and made his way up the wooden stairs. As quiet as possible he entered the tavern and approached the bar. He cleared his throat and grabbed the attention of the bar keep.

"Kind sir, an ale would be much appreciated, and if possible could you point me into the direction of Dothgar?

His eyes glanced over the selections of seaweed rather carefully, finding only the freshest specimens to take home. Anna had been diligent of his training in medicinal recipes as had the doctor before her. At this point, he almost knew more than she did, or at least could recall more faster and more easily, though of course he would never think to point such out.

Balancing on his cane and leaning forward he picked one up, testing its weight before shaking his head and setting it aside for another. Finally settling on the few finer selections, he paid the merchant and nodded respectfully before moving on to collect the other ingredients he needed.

His morning and early afternoon was spent wandering the market, resting occasionally to spare his leg. The merchants knew him and though he would often frequent a few different villages along the coast, this was his favorite as it was closest to the base.

As it grew later in the day, clouds gathered overhead and Gimpy glanced up as he felt a drop or two. The clouds looked less than friendly and he had no desire to get himself nor his purchases wet. Heading for the nearby tavern, he nodded to proprietor and made his way slowly to the bar.

"Same as usual Gimpy?" the proprietress asked with a wry smile. Gimpy was no stranger here and she knew his leg was likely giving him grief.

He nodded with a thin smile and labored to get himself up onto a stool, succeeding in such just a few minutes before a young man ducked in out of the rain.

Gimpy took little note of him at first, though he knew from a glance that he was an outsider. Few respectable males in this land would dress so and Gimpy knew all of them at a glance. He took his ale from the barkeep's husband and smiled at him in a friendly manner.

He knew the proprietress was not a hard wife but he'd heard her speak sharply to the man on occasion and he tried to offer comfort to him whenever he could.

When the stranger spoke to the man as if he were the owner of the place, both looked at him slightly surprised, the man shrinking slightly and glancing in the direction of his wife who was currently occupied with other customers at a table in the far corner. His discomfort heightened at the mention of the flight base and the man nearly appeared trapped.

"Um..um yes sir" he said before darting off to grab a pint for him.

Gimpy chuckled softly to himself before taking a swig and glancing at the man.

”Not from around here I see” he noted quietly. ”What interest have you in Dothgar if you don't mind my asking?”

His ears picked up the hushed whispers as Ned apologetically interrupted his wife's conversation and pointed out the newcomer so that she could properly greet him. She uttered a few sharp words at him before apologizing to her guests and making her way towards the bar.

"My husband will be right out with your ale sir, fraid' I can't help you with directions though. Off limits that place is. We aren't even suppose to know of it. Heaven knows its hard to ignore all those dragons feeding though."

She sent a look at Gimpy both of knowing and warning. If he knew what was good for him he'd keep his mouth shut it warned. He eyed her quietly and looked down at his ale, before glancing at the man curiously.

Justin took note of the reaction he caused. The friction that lingered between husband and wife. He must be closer to Dothgar, as even here the woman were filled with high levels of estrogen. There must be something in the water. In an attempt not to stare he scratched his head and looked at his surroundings.

It most certainly wasn't a busy pub however the rain had brought in those that hadn't made it home yet. Or those that didn't want to make it home yet. Hiding from their wives.

"Ah, good assumption." He smiled at the stranger speaking with him. He looked worn down, but not weak. As if life had taken its toll on the poor soul. "First time in these parts." He replied with a smirk and nod. Then again would he be asking for directions if he was from here. The man either knew where this place was, or was hankering for some small talk.  

"Well, you see, I was asked to meet a young lady there." Not the truth, not a lie. He remembered the words the merchant spoke, and now that he was getting closer more people would have destain for the place. "I was provided a paper with direction....and request for entry. My name is Justin BaeFire of Krotan. Commander and Chief of the Royal Dragon Fleet.” He finally just spat out with the loyal gruff voice of a proud soldier. Might as well, he was tired, tired of being on the road, tired of not flying, tired of beating around the bush. It was time to lay down his head, possibly beside a pretty young maiden for a night or two.

If he was a man that knew about Dothgar he would know what his title meant, if not he would either be able to point him in the right direction at least, or laugh at Justin.

As the man explained himself the proprietress and Gimpy exchanged a knowing look. While she was not as well aware of the outside world as Gimpy, all knew of the nation of Krotan. It was a wonder the man felt safe traveling alone through this country, and Gimpy wondered why Commandar Hathgar had not escorted him herself. Surely she would not let a guest of the queen travel so haphazardly alone. He knew she had no love of males in uniform, but even she would not be so brazenly disrespectful to the diplomatic efforts of the queen. Unless of course this man was a fraud. He pursed his lips slightly and eyed him quietly.

"Ah. Well then you'll be needing him den." She spoke briskly as her husband delivered the ail with a soft apology about it taking too long. "He's a nurse there." she said dismissively before smiling, nodding to the stranger and heading down the bar, bickering with her husband and shooing him off to take care of tables as she greeted regulars who were darting in out of the storm.

”Harold Russel.” He offered with a hand. ”Everyone calls me Gimpy, pleasure to meet you sir.” he paused for a moment, taking a sip of his ale.

”Would you mind terribly if I took a look at that letter?” he asked with an easy smile.

Unknown to him, two females had taken note of the stranger and an mischievous glint had entered their eyes.

"Hey good looking" one said as they drew nearer. "My my, you know where that uniform would look absolutely perfect?" she paused, her eyes looking hungry. "My floor.."

Gimpy rolled his eyes and turned to look at them. "Hey leave him along gals.."

"What you gonna do about it...gimp." one sneered before looking back at Justin with the look of a lioness stalking an antelope.

The look the two gave each other did not escape Justin. A small smirk formed on his face. Krotan was a very large kingdom, well known for its dragon fleet, and more so known for its well strategized war encounters. However this also put a bitter taste in the mouths of many as the King was very war hungry. Not just for the expansion of the kingdom but also for the riches it provided. Gold, money, women, horses, and dragons.

Justin pulled himself onto the stool and leaned forward. Resting both elbows on the counter and crossing his arms. He provided a smile to the barkeep as he brought him his ale. He dipped his head in a thankful nod and dropped coins to cover his ale.

His glance drifted to the man sitting a few bar stools away. A male nurse. That's wasn't something that Justin was accustomed to. A medicine man....sure. A doctor....sure. A nurse...either he preferred the male gender for warmth, or he was just that secure in his sexual orientation.

"Commander and Chief Justin BaeFire. Most call me Justin. The pleasure is all mine." Justin stated as he grabbed his ale and walked towards Gimpy. He knew better than to walk towards him digging in his bag. Thus he set his ale down and removed his gloves before offering him a firm hand shake. He then replaced his gloves and removed the parchment from his bag.

He offered it to Gimpy. It did not provide any delicate information. That information was delivered by dragon several moon phases ago. It was a thick sheet of parchment graced with a wax seal that had already been broken as it held his directions.

"It seems my guide hadn't been to fond of my requested presence with the new recruits and left m the city before I arrived. A merchant had pointed me into the direction of these fishing villages. It seems that I have come to the proper place." As he spoke with Gimpy two females approached them. They were obviously of the lower class and not to the taste of Justin. However it had been several weeks since he had laid with a woman. The thought had crossed his mind, yet quickly interrupted by Gimpy's gruff reminder to back off. Another indication of his sexual preference. Who was he to judge.

Justin turned his head and gave them a dimpled smirk. His blue eyes holding a sense of adventure and sensation that they had never felt before. However, Justin held stronger to his responsibilities than his own personal pleasure.

"Now now ladies." He picked up his ale. "I don't believe that is a proper way to speak to a gentleman." Besides he didn't have much respect for woman that acted as such. He may like women more than he should, however he had class, he had expectations, and frankly these ladies didn't meet them. Who knows what he would catch.

"We have business to discuss that is not fitting for such sensitive and beautiful ears." He winked at them but there was a firmness in his voice. One strong enough to remind them that he wasn't kidding. He knew however that for women like this he would have to throw in some charm.

He returned his attention to Gimpy not noticing if they had left or not.

Gimpy began to eye the letter carefully though not with malice. He glanced up at the man's words about the guide leaving without him. That was strange, no recruit, officer or second year would even consider leaving an allied officer in the cold, much less the allied commander. He was about to ask Justin about the identity of this guide when the females approached.

Their words while hurtful did little to phase him. He'd heard worse on base. He was about to engage them when Justin tried to get them to leave with a dose of male charm.

He sat back slightly to watch. Raising an eyebrow slightly at his new acquaintance.

"We will speak to him how we like." said one, her lip curling up into a sneer. "It is you who should watch how you speak." she said as she took a step further. Her companion stopped her, putting out an arm. She smiled at the wink and tilted her head. "My my, we have a charmer here. He obviously hasn't encountered Ba-chen hospitality." She had a smile on her face, but the hungry gleam had not left.

Gimpy grunted and pushed himself off of his stool, gulping down the rest of his ale and propping himself up with his cane while gently grabbing Justin to urge him towards the door. "Let's go" he grunted. "No need for any Ba-chen hospitality at the moment."

Now he knew all to well why he didn't stoop low enough to their kind. Very little class. She sneered at him, he nearly chuckled to himself and rubbed his brow. He was not about to step up to a woman. Were she a male or had swung at either him or the man ready to help him he would have certainly stood in their way. Luckily her friend stepped in and took care of the situation. All the while chuckling to himself and a good shake of the head as he followed Gimpy's lead.

He lifted his ale and took the rest down the hatch with one large gulp. His adams apple sliding up and down a couple of times. He licked his lips and wiped his mouth. He provided the friend with another wink before walking backwards with a smile. A charming one at that. Only reason however, he wasn't about ready to turn his back on them. It would only unfold the invitation for the angry one to jump him. He certainly didn't want to leave the bar a mess after just entering the village. Strategy wasn't just important in war.

He followed Gimpy outside. "Classy women!" He pointed out shaking his head. "Are they all like that in these parts? That would just be devastating." He asked.

As they stepped outside Hanzo and Krios both picked up their head. Hanzo gently wagged his tail but to tired and wet to stand. Instead he released a happy whine.

"Is there a possibility you could point me in the right direction? Assuming the parchment was to your satisfaction."

Gimpy was happy that the man followed him and willed himself not to look back at the females. He grunted in response to Justin's comments and continued his rocking gait out of the bar.

"No. Not all. They're certainly some of the worst. Been a long time since I've had trouble from their kind. Most ladies in Rynar give males the same respect we give them. Give them their space and they'll leave you alone.  "

He glanced at the animals assembled waiting for Justin and glanced back at the letter in his hand, apologetically handing it back to Justin.

"Of course of course, everything seems to be in order. Course I'm just a lowly nurse" he chuckled slightly. Boy he hoped his head wouldn't get chewed off for this.

"My wagon is just over at the stables here, Lika should be harnessed and ready. If you wish you can ride in wagon with me or on your horse. Looks like your dog might enjoy a change of pace" he offered with a kind smile. It had been awhile since he could truly enjoy the company of another male and the forty year old was quite enjoying himself if he were to be honest.

Upon getting on their way, he settled the mare into a steady pace and glanced at Justin. ""Now sir, it is quite strange this mix-up. I can't imagine any of the fleet leaving you out cold. Quite strange. Pray tell do you know the name of the lady you were supposed to meet?""

Justin shrugged at the Gimpy's comment. Taking the letter back and placing it into his bag he smiled and looked towards the barn he pointed out. The rain had now slowed to a drizzle but the thunder still rolled up ahead. Krios didn't do well tethered to a wagon or other horses.

"I will ride beside you." Justin smiled. "Load up" He motioned for Hanzo to jump into the wagon. He happily did so. Justin nudged Krios forward to ride beside the wagon where Gimpy held onto the driving reins.

"Commander Sabine Hathgar. If I recall properly." He advised. "Is there anything I should be aware of, or to beware." He chuckled. Coming into a new kingdom was always tough, especially when it came to others soldiers. Each kingdom had their own way of training recruits. It was fairly obvious that there was a reason for the Queen to ask for Justin. What it was escaped him at this time. He couldn't imagine the Commander was doing too bad of a job considering they hadn't yet lost a war. Then again they were on the brink of war with Krotan. And frankly, everyone knew that would be a blood bath where Krotan could only come out on top. They had much larger dragons, and far more soldiers. Maybe this was their diplomatic solution. Possibly at Krotan's own demise considering Justin was their star Commander. Although it wasn't always so.

A large shadow danced above them. At first easily mistaken as a cloud, but as the shadow's wings flapped it was apparent it was a dragon. Samba remained over head.

"Babysitting?" Justin asked Samba.
"Well a strange man leading you into a strange direction. Yet it all seems so very familiar." Samba replied.

"What can you tell me about the Dragon Fleet that I will be assisting with?" Justin asked Gimpy letting Samba's comment slide.

Gimpy looked at him curiously as the man said it was Sabine with whom he was supposed to meet. Commandar Hathgar would no more leave out a diplomatic visitor than cut the head off her dog. No there had to be a mix-up. He shrugged quietly at the man's question, clicking for the horse to keep going despite the wagon ruts.

"Not particularly. She expects respect. Fair otherwise. I don't interact with her much. Doctor Anna is my superior and Commander Hathgar normally concerns herself mostly with the dragon riders. Generally the extent of my interactions with her are when one of her riders gets hurt." he explained.

He thought for a moment, considering what he'd observed of her.

"She seems to be fairly safety conscious. Won't put one of her people in danger needlessly." he noted with a shrug.

He thought for a moment about the man's second question. While he wished to answer him to the fullest of his ability, something held him back.

"I'm afraid I have heard nothing of your coming to work with us so I fear I have little knowledge of what would be pertinent for you to know" he trailed off slightly, side-stepping the question as politely as he could.

Justin listened carefully. Taking in as much of the man's words as possible. This was new territory for him. However the man's trailing of his reply did not go unnoticed. As much as Justin wanted to pry, he refrained. There was a reason he was being quaint with his answer. He would find out soon enough.

They rode in silence for some time. The creaking and cracking of the wheels filling the silence. The seagulls squawking over head, the merciless waives crashing against the rock faces."How long of a trek is it?" He finally asked breaking the silence. It was by no means an awkward silence, surprisingly so. Rather a silence between companions that seemed only normal. Then again they were men. They had no need for unnecessary chatter.

Samba remained close behind them for the biggest portion of their travels. Yet this time he flew ahead. He must have heard something that they had not. He let out a bellowing roar, not an aggressive one. As if he was answering someone or something.

Gimpy did not mind as silence enveloped them. Though he did hope that Justin had not taken his reluctance to speak on the fleet wrongly, he didn't wish to pry and make things worse. Instead he settled into the comfortable silence and merely uttered encouragement to the cart horse occasionally.

As they drew nearer to the cliffs, he considered which entrance to bring Justin in. Normally he would use the beach entrance, yet he wondered whether that would be considered treasonous considering it was not well known nor was it especially guarded. Oh there was normally a guard or two, but generally that was considered the faster way in. Deciding to play it safe, he guided them towards the inland entrance, skirting along the outside of the enchanted forest towards the base of the cliffs. No reason to clue Justin into the other entrance needlessly.

He considered as Justin asked how long the journey would be.
"Oh we should be there by evening." he noted with a calm smile.

"Commander Hathgar should be arriving any time. Her caravan was expected two days ago, but you know how gathering new recruits go. Over-eager bastards" he chuckled.

Silence enveloped them once more for a bit, but not nearly as long as it had before. "Don't wish to pry commander.." he started tentatively, "but what were you told of the details of this visit?" he asked curiously.

Heavens knew he'd probably not hear a word of things once Justin got into Commander Hathgar's company. He hardly ever heard the details of goings on around the base as he had very few friends who felt comfortable sharing gossip with him. What he did hear was often second or third or fourth hand, of which even that he heard by mistake when the aviators shared it with the doctor.

He looked up as the Commander's dragon roared, noting a patrol dragon in the distance. "Looks like Lieutenant Bateman is on shift today. Have your dragon inform hers that I am accompanying you and we should have little trouble. Might come down for a look or two though."

The enchanted forest seemed to almost follow them. The sounds that bellowed out it varied from whispers to howls. Krios pranced eagerly, not used to the feeling of magic. This was certainly a unique place. Nothing like Krotan. Yet Justin felt almost at home here. He and Samba had the same feeling of comfort and understanding of this place.

Justin nodded and smirked at Gimpy's comment. Wrangling recruits was a chore in itself. Let alone training them. In his position he had dealt with mostly second year recruits. Those that already understood their dragons and had a basic knowledge of flying. Second year recruits learned more about strategic flying and how to fight with their dragon rather than against. They had to be one fluid movement. Working against each other could be deadly.

As the silence was once more broken he curiously looked at Gimpy as he attempted not to pry. "Well I was given little incite to my visit here. One of those things where they ask and it's easier not to argue. " He chuckled. "None the less, they informed me that due to their growth in dragon fleet, the larger and stronger dragons have taken note and are more willing to hatch for the new recruits. This can cause problems with Commanders and trainers that are not familiar with this specific breed. They have a much harder will to break. Think of it as a wild horse versus one that was born and raised on the local pastures." He attempted to explain. "Once the recruit has gained its trust, it is a bond never broken. They will have a bond like never seen before. They will be able to fight and work better than the hatchling's of the second year recruits." Justin paused for a moment. "Now I'm sure you are asking yourself why me? I can't answer that with a satisfactory response, however Samba was one of those dragons. No one could tame him, no one knows why he hatched as all the recruits had their dragons. I was nobody, a stable boy. Yet we bonded." There was another pause and silence as Justin debated on the second portion of his knowledge. Justin opened his mouth several times, preparing to speak, then closed it again. Was this man someone he could trust? Thankfully he had always been a good judge of character, not to mention that this man was now his guide and he would have to put some form of trust in him. "On the other hand, Krotan was on the brink of war. And frankly the dragon fleet here didn't stand a chance against that of Krotan's. The Queen saw a chance for diplomacy and figured me coming here and seeing how peaceful of a place this was, I may get through to our King. Thanks to Samba, the King has no choice but to trust me." He smiled looking up at Samba who flew ahead.

"I heard." Samba informed Justin in reference to Gimpy's remark. Samba flew further ahead and advised the other dragon that they were accompanied by Gimpy and that they were not intruders and meant no harm.

Gimpy truly did not take much notice of the enchanted forest anymore. He steered clear of it to be sure, but he also knew that as long as they stayed clear of its boundaries, no harm would come to them. The cart horse flickered her ears but gave little other inclination of being bothered. Though they more often took the sea road, when it was stormy or flooded, this path was safer though longer.

He listened carefully as Justin explained what he knew of the reasons for the visit. Peaceful. Well that was going to be an interesting sell to make. The Rynarian fleet was making just as many preparations for war as Justin hinted the Krotans were. Still he would leave the negotiations to Commander Hathgar, heavens knew it was above his pay grade.

"Well if only for selfish reasons, I do hope some peace can be found between our nations" Gimpy said quietly as the dragons conferred above.  "I for one have enjoyed your company."

He glanced up as the patrol dragon hovered from a bit and then Bateman brought her dragon down. They swooped down with a respectable amount of grace, dropping with speed and efficiency before making a smooth landing.

Sliding off her dragon, you could see little, if any, of Lieutenant Bateman's face though her form was one to be desired. Trim and fit, she strode with purpose and resolve. Her curves accentuated beautifully with the form fitting, aerodynamic uniform.

"Nurse Russel report" she said as she pulled off her helmet to reveal a fiery red head of hair and freckled checks. Her eyes were a blazing emerald green and her face though beautifully chiseled, spoke only of getting down to business.

Gimpy exchanged a two fingered salute with the Lieutenant before replying.

"I encountered Commander and Chief Justin Baefire of the Krotan Royal Dragon Fleet while getting supplies in Ba-chen. Upon reviewing his documents, I offered to escort him to Dothgar and Commander Hathgar."

Lieutenant Bateman nodded and glanced over both men with neither warmth nor malice. "May I see the documents?" she asked not unkindly but in a professional tone. "Procedure" she noted with a slight apologetic look.

While it was certainly more acceptable for Gimpy to be escorting Justin than the Commander coming alone, Gimpy was far from being ranked high enough to bring in an outsider without their papers being double checked.
