"Yukyo, mm? I never worked with him before. He seems alright." Lakoda smiled and hugged her sketchbook close to her. "When I can't play piano or guitar, I like to draw. But that'll have to come later... Oh look, Yukyo is here now. I'll go speak to him and see if he wants to come with us." She nodded to Shawn and then headed over to the cat-like man and made and cleared her throat, although it sounded like a weird cough without the the voice behind it. "Good morning, Yukyo," she greeted with a friendly smile. "Shawn and I were looking at the job board and we were planning to take the cake job. Shawn said you might be interested. Do you wish to come with us?" Midarah looked up to see Everette coming over to her with the most recent job from the board. She smiled a little and took it in her hand. "Alright... I know you know the risks. Honestly, this is almost on the borderline of S-Class. I am relieved you are going on this job." She pulled out of her guild stamp, a rose with a steam and leaves, from her sleeve and pressed a glyph on the side, activating a rainbow ink to appear on the rose. She then took the paper and stamped it on there, officially giving the job the seal stamp of approval for the group to embark. "Good luck, and if you need anything, anything, please send me a message as quick as possible and I will be on my way." Village in Peril- Conrad, Everette, Samuel Spoiler: Village in Peril Soon Samuel, Conrad, and Everette would embark on their quest. The supplies they needed were in hand, and the journey only took a day and a half. First they went by train, then by magical car, and then by horse and cart when it seemed they were getting further and further away from civilization. It took some convincing to get a horse and cart to the Froulk Woods Village, but once they convinced the driver they weren't going to make them go near the village, he offered them a ride there. They were about a mile away from the village gates when the horse and cart stopped, and the driver looked over at the three boys. "This is where I stop. You boys be careful now, you hear? Everyone that goes into that village gets sick, and never come back out..." Samuel paid the driver, and after the group gathered their items off the cart, the driver high-tailed on out of there, leaving the three boys in the dust. There was no choice but to go forward at this point... Once the group approached the gates, there were about four guards on the ground, and two up on the high wooden gate. One saw the group approach and held up his hand to make them stop. "Halt! This village is under quarantine due to a strange illness. No one is allowed inside!" Samuel frowned and pushed his glasses up his nose. "We're from the Divine Rose guild. We took the job that was posted this morning." Samuel took the Job Posting from Everette's bag and held it out for the guard to see. The guard carefully edged their way over to Sam and snatched the parchment from him, looking it over with wide eyes. "So soon? M-my apologies," the guard said as he placed his hand over his chest and bowed. "We weren't expecting anyone to take the job this quickly. Show me your guild marks, and we will let you in." Samuel pulled up his shirt to where his Guild Mark was resting on his left hip. Once the others showed their marks, they would be let inside the gates. "Thank you... Chief Yolvun is in the main hall of the village, the largest building in the village. That's where we keep our most critically ill at. H-He is not ill, but simply checking on them." Samuel nodded his head and looked back to the other two when the gates were raised. Taking in a deep breath, Samuel pushed on with his pack on his back and walked on through. The buildings were in shambles, some missing parts of roofs or walls were crumbling. There was hardly anyone walking around save for a few here and there, but they seemed slow and disheartened. The life was literally sucked out of this place. There could be sounds of a baby crying somewhere, and a small group of people were gathered at a hut with the door wide opened, where Sam looked in time to see a blanket being put over someone's body. The boy felt his throat go dry and knew that they came at a very critical time... would they be able to help them? He looked up to see that there was in fact one large building out of all of them, sitting close to the middle of the village where a well was at. The roof was partially falling in, and the paint was peeling off the walls, but the building mostly held together. "That's probably what the guard was talking about," Sam said in a quiet voice as if he was walking on hallowed grounds .
