Theme: The Forested Temple - FFVII
A gentle breeze wafted inland and through the Esthar streets. It wafted down alleys and side-streets until it came to an abandoned part of town, where it dropped the ash it carried and continued onwards on its natural course.
The ash span and revolved, slowly rising upwards until it began to grow solid. A pair of feet apeared, then legs, then hands and a torso, then arms, then finally a head. Sharona Eli coughed his sickly cough, expelling some of the ash from his lungs before adjusting his artificial arm and stepping out into the street.
In a city full of moogles, this dark, drab boy, short by our standards but a giant by their's, would not be hard at all to find.
Meanwhile, across town at the airship yard, a train was coming to a halt on the tracks.

A bright light shined off in the east. In reallity it was three people stepping out of a portal, one being a viera woman of her mid twenties, the other was a viera man of about the same age and with them was a young priestess, "Well... Here we are suga'. Do ya think you'll need us any further hun?"
Zaxton - March 6, 2007 08:41 PM (GMT)
The priestess bowed to them, "I woulnd't want to be a bother. Thanks for bringing me here."
Eli happened to glance East when the light was shining, (... Hmm. I see absorbing Azulor's life-force has only made you stronger, Mani. I seriously doubt that bumpkin that found us could conjure such force.)
He turned and headed west toward the marketplace.
Fube was speaking with an old foreman at the dockyard, "How much to take a half-dozen of your flatbeds off your hands for a week?"
"They aren't for sale, kupo."
The viera nodded, "I know that, I just need to borrow them."
"I said they ain't for sale, kupo!"
Fube sighed, (Rats. Literally.)

Alice: It's no trouble really... We have nothing better to do.
Darryl nodded though he didn't say a word. Alice laughed, "We'll help you then."
Zaxton - March 6, 2007 10:01 PM (GMT)
Mani shook her head, "Its really not needed. We're drawn together like lodestone."
Eli had stopped at a vendor, evidentially trying to sell the moogle a large gold orb.

Alice: Come on... I feel we should help ya... We have nothing else to do...
Darryl nodded, he then pointed to the middle of the city in the market. Alice smiled, "Lose you're voice hun?" Darryl nodded. Alice giggled, "Awwwww... Poor guy... Though let's go."

Mani nodded and started walking, letting her instincts guide her.
"That can't be solid gold, kupo."
Eli nodded, smiling, "You're right, it isn't. This is a soul-orb that morphers use. I can't use it, but I'm sure you get morphers here all the time in a port town like this."
"KUUUPO!" the moogle slapped the counter a few times, "I'll take it!"
Eli handed him the ball.
Fube had gathered a small crowd of traders from the docks, "Alrighty. Do any of you have a pair of flatbed cars I can borrow?"
"Oh, sure thing, kupo."
Fube smiled, Finally, we're getting results!

Alice and Darryl walked close behind. Alice looked over at Mani, "Can ya sense him suga'?"
Zaxton - March 7, 2007 11:03 PM (GMT)
"Yes, he's very close by."
Eli tapped her on the shoulder, "Who? Nobody too dangerous, I hope. ^_^"
"Uh, you, actually." Mani stammered.
Eli turned his head to look at the other two, "Assassins, huh? Interesting escorts, for a priestess."
"Which rail set are you on, kupo?"
"14 eastbound." Fube pointed, "That's my train there, the Rust Sacura."

Alice: We weren't about to leave a little girl stranded in a jagd so Darryl did a warp spell. And I hope you learned you're lesson that you can't take me out Little mister. ^_^
Zaxton - March 7, 2007 11:13 PM (GMT)
Eli just smiled his smug little smile, "We'll see."
He shouldered his backpack, "... I'm off to Biggswood. I've got business to attend to, and no time to baby sit your little helpers, Mani."
"They can take care of themselves." She replied, indignantly.
Fube was now bartering at a building supplier, "Do you have magicite plate?"
"How much do you need, kupo."
She dropped her bag, which sounded to be VERY full of money, "All of it."

Alice: He'll never learn... ^_^
Zaxton - March 7, 2007 11:18 PM (GMT)
Eli simply started walking.
shawdi - March 7, 2007 11:28 PM (GMT)
Alice leaned over and whispered to Mani, "Do we follow him or let him be for now?"
Zaxton - March 7, 2007 11:35 PM (GMT)
Mani shook her head, "Leave him. Some friends of mine live near here, we should run ahead. I think that's where he's going."
Zaxton - March 9, 2007 01:21 PM (GMT)
With the plates and several other airship components loaded onto the train, Fube sped off to head back to base.
