Future Plans and an Interesting Quest
So, while we did get some nice things, it was just bait. Now, all of the evil in the Empire was going to be attracted to us. Huh. I’m sure the good Emperor was feeling very happy about all of this. But we mere Adventurers were not too grateful.
On the other hand, they were very useful tools. That was a fact. Perhaps there was a good balance we could find. Still, it was some rather impressive manipulation on his part…
It continued to be on my mind as I ate dinner with Daniela. Then I saw her fork moving towards my meat.
“Knock it off.”
How greedy could a person get?
“You are still thinking about the gifts, I suppose?”
“There is no point in doing that. We have them now. And we will kill anyone who gets in our way. And that will help bring peace.”
“Well, that’s true, but… Anyway, we should plan what to do next.”
I suggested after cutting the meat in half and putting it on Daniela’s plate. She put the delicious-looking morsel into her mouth and chewed it slowly. Then she swallowed and nodded.
“Thank you. So, what we will do…”
“Hmm… I hadn’t really thought about it.”
“Well, thinking of it should help with digestion.”
And so we faced each other and talked about it. As we’d be leaving the Imperial Capital, we’d have to prepare for our journey. That meant shopping. However, we still hadn’t decided on a date for our departure.
And so we ultimately concluded that we’d stay here for a while. Do some quests like good Adventurers and explore the city. A little peace and quiet would be nice.
“Alright, it is settled then.”
“Got it. Ahh, I’m tired after eating so much…”
“Hmm… It is time for bed.”
“Good night, Asagi.”
We kissed and then got into bed. I felt like I had done a little too much thinking today…which tended to happen when meeting important people. It wasn’t for me. I preferred to travel around at my leisure. This day was a good reminder.
