A Chance Encounter

Post by Acerva on Sat Jun 06, 2015 9:11 pm

after practicing my smithing skills for some odd hours, i felt the need to get some fresh air.
staying cooped up within a forge can drive a man insane, or so i've heard. I decide to walk through the shopping district and take the sights in, it was fairly late and there wasn't as many people walking around so i decided it would be safe to just look around.

As i was distracted by a big screen atop a building i suddenly felt something bump against me, i look down to notice that i'd bumped into a small girl with light brown hair and olive coloured skin.
"Oh I'm sorry i wasn't really paying attention to what was in front of me" an apologetic face comes with the words as i look down and bow slightly out of habit. "I hope i didn't hurt you"

Clerxha walks through the Shopping District, not watching where she's going. Her nose is in a book, albeit not literally, and she stumbles forward when someone bumps into her. The brunette catches herself--she's not that clumsy anymore--and turns around to the apologetic man.

She smiles, brushing it off as nothing. "I'm fine," she says with a wave of her hand. "It'd take more than that to hurt me." She extends the same hand in greeting, "I'm Clerxha," she introduces as she tilts her head upwards to look him in the eyes. She's seen the man around the city, but she's been busy running places that she hasn't had the time to introduce herself.

I shake her hand, a look of relief washing over me.
"My name is Acerva Grim," i examine the cler curiously, my eyes catching on the book she was reading, "So what were you reading before i rudely interrupted you?"
I let go of her hand and stare at the book till she answers me. I was never one for reading books but curiosity was getting the better of me this time as i'd never seen this book before in my life.

Acerva, huh? Interesting name, the brunette muses until he inquires about her book.

"It's nothing special--just one of the elemental magic books from my shop. I'm pretty sure I know everything that's in it," she comments, indicating her place more than halfway through the three-hundred-page tome. "But it's still pretty interesting to get a new perspective. The title's Chinese Elementals, if you want to read it sometime."

Cler offers me the book to read, i shake my head and wave an arm in front of me. "Sadly i do not enjoy reading books, it only takes me minutes to finish books of that size." i rub the back of my head and shrug "In this case curiosity got the btter of me, there's so much of this world i don't know."

taking a few minutes to think i come to a decision, "well i was actually strolling through this district and enjoying the sights, would you like to join me?" i look at Cler expectantly, hoping she decides to join me.

Cler opens her mouth to defend reading books, even if they're similar, but she decides against it as Acerva speaks again. "Well, this world within itself is constantly evolving. I've lived here for years and don't know as much as I'd like," she admits.

The brunette nods in response to Acerva's offer, looking at the city around them. She stows her book in her seemingly small bag. "That'd be wonderful if you don't mind the company."

She takes a few steps in a random direction before inquiring. "Where would you like to go?"

"Well i didn't have much of a plan as to where to go, if you don't mind i think i would like to just walk around and see what peeks my interests. if possible i'd like to become more familiar with my surroundings."
With a smile on my face look around a bit and decide to continue walking down another street, it was one just adjacent to where cler was coming from and seemed like as good a way as any to visit and explore.
"Why don't we take a gander at what lies down this road eh?" I point out the path and begin walking that way. "So given that you were reading one as we bumped into each other i take it you're a fan of reading?"

Clerxha nods in agreement. She's memorized the majority of the Dark City (and doesn't have to look in her notes too much anymore), but she understands why people want to know where they are. She smiles in response and follows Acerva down the streets. They're in the shopping district, and she recognizes a number of shops that have changed since she first arrived over three years prior.

She knows full-well what lies down the road--heck, her shop's about four blocks straight ahead--but she continues walking anyway. A bright smile crosses her face as she nods in excitement. "Yeah, I do. I actually own the main bookshop in the city... I mentioned that before. It's right down-" she points straight ahead of them, "-that way, a few blocks in." Cler drums on the cover of the book with her fingers before adding in a quiet voice, "I was a prisoner for nearly eight years. Books were my best companion. I've read a lot, but it can only give a small amount of insight into real world situations. And like, books can't help too much when fighting for your life." Her voice trails off as her eyes glaze over in memory, but she snaps out of it quickly. "But yeah, I like books." The brunette giggles with a shrug. "I've always been a quick reader, but I can totally understand why some people don't like reading." To be honest, she hasn't had the chance to read much because of her responsibilities in the Dark City and the seemingly constant missions elsewhere.

i listen intently as we walk through the street, committing all i was told to memory."Ahh so that's your store? Well then i'm quite curious as to what it must look like inside." Deciding this was probably the most fun course of action overall i begin heading in the direction of Cler's bookstore.
"I know that feeling of loneliness all to well sadly, often times i find the memories a bit overwhelming but alas there is no real escape from one's mind when oblivion isn't even an option" Reaching her bookstore i open the door and motion for Cler to enter first before following her in.
"Ahh so this is a book store?" I say looking around at the shelves filled with books, the sheer amount of them you wouldn't be wrong to assume you'd accidentally stumbled into a library.
"Even as someone who doesn't really appreciate the efforts of reading this is quite something to see." I walk up to one of the bookshelves and start looking at the titles on some of the book spines.
