    Wolfsbane [w/ Leif, Arik]

    Post by Yuuki on Sun Jun 25, 2017 5:15 pm

    Yuuki scrolled through her computer screen, gray eyes glancing up and down the page that a member of the underground had sent her. She sat back in her chair with a thoughtful expression. Should she accept this job? It paid a decent price, and although Yuuki didn't understand what they would need wolfsbane for, she was certain that it wouldn't involve her or her team in anyway, so it could be a relatively safe mission. Yuuki printed out the paper, making sure that coordinates had actually been written on there (it wasn't very pretty last time). Grabbing the paper, she headed upstairs at a rather slow pace, pondering over who she could send. Draligon was off on a mission already, Sly and Lexia were due to head out soon, Echo was working on repairs with Hisashi... she guessed her only choice would be Arik, their resident computer technician.

    Well, it wasn't like this mission was impossible to complete. Arik was intelligent; Yuuki was somewhat confident that he could find the right tools to get the wolfsbane quickly, but she had to worry about his ability to defend himself as well... She entered the living room, seeing the young man sitting on the couch with his trusty laptop resting in front of him. "Arik," she called, striding over to him. "I have a mission for you."

    She handed over the piece of paper. "It's just a simple job of collecting a few pounds of wolfsbane for this client. The coordinates are here," she pointed on the paper, "so make sure you actually input them. It's easy enough; I'm certain you're smart enough to collect this without too much of a hassle."

    "Make sure you give me updates throughout the mission. I don't want a repeat of last time." And last time sure had been a mess, when Arik didn't even mention to her that he would be gone for such a long time. Yuuki hadn't been sure whether he'd died or not.

    Arik had just been searching through the government's files, seeing if anything new or important to him had shown up. He was also making sure that any traces of DS or bounties were erased, or at the very least scrambled or misleading. It's just one of the things he did in his pastime, when he wasn't hanging out with Leif or doing other things. Arik had actually been thinking about calling the man again... He had enjoyed the movie and felt bad that he was under another busy spell. Friendly relationships with people outside of the base seemed to be hard to maintain, especially if Yuuki would rip his head off if anyone knew about them. She didn't like normal people being involved in their work, and he could understand the reasoning behind that.

    It wasn't much of a surprise when Yuuki came in and gave him a mission. He was expecting another simple mission, maybe even too simple and close because she was still mad at him for the last one. Her reasoning was understandable, but it still didn't help him out. "Of course..." He responded, analysing the paper. It was a simple job on the outside; go find some wild Wolfsbane, collect it, and bring it back. But it's what the plant was that had his skin crawling. He was told about Wolfsbane as a child, and had done more research on it as he had gotten older. Of course, the two accounts had different feelings on the plant. But what he knew about it was that it was a reactant with were's, so this wasn't going to be fun.

    He wondered, if everyone else was here would she still have chosen him? Maybe she'd end up partnering him with someone else. It was probably a good thing that she didn't, at least for when it came to being around the plant. But, she could be sending him on this because she suspected that there was more to him than what he had let her know. No, he was worrying too much. He just needed to complete the mission and he'd be done with Wolfsbane forever. Simple.

    This mission shouldn't last more than a day or two with travel, so he didn't need to bring much. "I'll be as quick as possible," he said without enthusiasm. Arik packed a couple days worth of clothes, a bit of food, and some money. Like always, he had his laptop with him in his jacket. It was getting warmer outside, but the were felt like he could manage it. He hated to wear short clothing anyways, too revealing. It also makes people more prone to the sun's rays, and he'd rather stay away from that radioactivity.

    He set off after agreeing, again, that he'd contact her periodically. If Arik would have had something to compare it to, he would probably say like a nagging mom, but he didn't have the experience with that. After a bit of a walk he eventually reached the city of Xastristan. Arik wasn't legally allowed to drive, so his best bet was to get a taxi or someone to drive him close enough to where he needed to go. From there, he could just walk and stay at inns as needed. Using calculations from last time he used a taxi he guessed it would round up to about $75 for the drive out there. It was about a good hour and a half on good days, two and a half on bad ones. Hopefully it wouldn't take that long and he could get out there as soon as possible, but traffic patterns were harder to predict. Hanging out on a corner he tried to wave down a taxi, but the streets were busy and there weren't many free taxis to be seen. He sighed. Maybe this would be a long and boring ride.

    It had been a while since Leif had actually done something with someone.  Most of the time, when he wasn’t working, he was at home watching old reruns of television shows and laughing about how horribly people dressed years ago.  Today he decided to do something different for a change.  He hated heat, but wore the same thing he did every day, no matter how much he would hate himself for it.  He wanted to talk to Arik, but after that movie, he wasn’t so sure that Arik would like him very much after he picked something so bad.  He was so lost in his negative thoughts that he left Quby behind, locked in his room.

    Leif exited the apartment building squinting in the harsh sunlight.  The last time he had been out during the day was about 3 days prior when he went to buy groceries.  Walking down the sidewalk, he gave people nasty looks as they passed, judging their fashion choices.  He couldn’t think of the last time he had felt so awful as to actually express his judgments about strangers.

    Still giving people mean looks, Leif found himself quite a ways away from where he lived.  Looking around like he was lost, he tried to find a familiar landmark that could tell him where he was, but his vision was obscured by surrounding buildings.  He figured that he may as well ask someone where he was and how to get home, even though he had a phone that could do that for him.  He looked around for someone who felt friendly enough to ask and saw a man in dark clothing who looked a bit like Arik from the back.  As he walked towards him, he realized that it was indeed Arik.  The blonde faked a cough, hoping to get Arik’s attention while not seeming to intrusive.

    Sometimes, the city wasn't forgiving. Through the hustle and bustle life and the traffic from both foot and car, it could be hard to get a taxi or anything to give you a ride. But of course, the once time that he wanted to do something quickly was when it took the longest. The man was about to give up and call a car like he should have done in the first place when he heard a sound behind him. Turning around the were caught a glimpse of blonde hair before his eyes caught sight of a familiar face. Normally, he'd be excited to see him, but now he wasn't. Before he could stop it, a frown had made its way to his face. It wasn't Leif, it was the mission, and more importantly, Yuuki. He knew that she'd gut him if anyone found  out about Dragon Storm without her knowing. Normally when they met, he was on break and didn't have to worry too much about the guild, unless Yuuki contacted him and told him to come back. Even then it'd be easy to say it was just work calling.

    It was unfair for Leif to be treated this way, at least Arik thought so. The were put on a smile and walked over. "Hey Leif," he said once he got close. Maybe Leif would be able to help him wave a taxi down as he seemed to be failing miserably at that. He hadn't been much of a city boy, in fact the exact opposite. He'd go to shops for electronic parts and whatnot, but apart from the occasional interaction he'd never lived in a big city until recently, and now he's back out of it with DS. Maybe it was just something about the lack of nature that drew him away. He needed trees and grass and dirt in his life. Maybe it was worth a shot to see if Leif could holler down a ride. "Would you be able to help me get a taxi? Apparently I'm not good at it," the were said with an awkward chuckle.

    Hearing that Arik was having trouble hailing a cab wasn't all that surprising to Leif.  Arik seemed a little more timid than other people the blonde had met.  "Yeah, of course I can help," he smiled.  He pulled out his phone and swiped through the cluttered pages of his home screen, looking for the app he wanted to use.  Finally, an app titled "Lure" came into his vision.  He opened it up and found what he was looking for, a button that would hail a cab to his location.  "It should be here in a few minutes," Leif told Arik as he put his phone away.  He thought it would be nice to keep Arik company while he waited, especially since Arik didn't know what cab he was looking for.

    "If you don't mind me asking, where are you headed?" the blonde asked.  He stared into Arik's green eyes, hoping that he would give Leif details, instead of just saying it was work like all the other times he had to leave early.  Leif would normally pry at people who didn't tell the whole truth, even though Leif frequently left out quite a few details.  He felt that if he did the same to Arik, it would hurt his feelings instead of just being annoying like it was to everyone else.  Leif didn't want Arik to feel like he wasn't trusted.  To Leif, it was the opposite.  Over the last few times they had been together, Leif felt like he could trust Arik more than anybody else he had met in the city.

    Arik watched as the man simply pulled out his phone and after a few seconds, said a cab was on its way. It had him practically dumbfounded. The blonde had more going on for him then it seemed. Now it was just the wait to see if there really was something on his device that would lure a taxi to them. The were stopped his surprised and confused look and instead replaced it with an involuntary blush, looking away from Leif. He probably looked foolish trying to haul a taxi by hand. But before he could dwell on that fact too long Leif asked him another question and the boy turned to face him again. His first thoughts flashed to Yuuki, then to his mission and DS. But looking at Leif again, how could a location reveal a secret guild?

    "Just heading to Lunaris," He said, answering only what the male had asked. While he wanted to say more he knew how this job worked, the more you said the more could be revealed. Arik doubted that Leif would do anything if he knew, or that he'd be able to find out, but it wasn't him he was worried about, it was Yuuki. She was already annoyed with his last mission, and he wouldn't be surprised if she was wondering why she had let him join the guild. He couldn't imagine what she'd do if he screwed this one up and let an outsider know of them. It was bad enough when Dral had brought in Aiko, but at least she was staying in the guild. If they thought that he was 'useless,' then he'd think that Leif would be even more so. Of course, he only knew the surface of the man. There could be hidden powers hiding beneath the surface, but the blonde didn't come off as intimidating or a force to be reckoned with. Maybe that's why Arik had even spoken to him in the first place.
