Two men within Montgomery's bar nursed beers as they waited nervously. They felt way out of place in their expensive and fashionable cloths as they gazed at the fishermen in third hand cloths, but that wasn't what made them nervous, that wasn't why one's hands shook everytime he put down the beer and he looked nervously at a far booth where their other guest was already holding court and then he would look at his partner who seemed more confident only because he was already four beers in the hole.
"Do you... do you really think he will come?"
"mmm?... Sure why wouldn't he? We offered him quite a bit just to hear the offer."
"... and are you sure he isn't going to just kill us, do horrible things to our body, and then take the money and leave?"
"...Dave.. he isn't going to do all that in a crowded tavern."
"... Do you think a man with his reputation would hesitate to kill everyone in the room?"
"........ okay you have a point Dave, but keep in mind his rep also indicates he deals fairly with his clients as long as their deal fairly with them"
"... As far as we know.... maybe we should just stick with the other one?"
"You know the committee would have a fit if we don't have someone else with the equipment. Besides the equipment is heavy and pure brute strength is not her thing... besides... it's too late now..."
Dave watched where his friend was looking as he saw a massive black shape eclipse the window.
"... no way Is he that big..."
The shape moved on in the direction of the door and moments later the wooden door opened and the eye of everyone one there went to the door as standing in front of it was a shape that completely blocked the doorway, he was huge, his coat as black as pitch except a primitive ritual scarification on the right side of his face centered around his right eye, the scars were angry and pink and almost glowed in the light upon them within the midnight coat. His gaze was a prepetially angry glare as it swept over the bar slowly taking in the inhabitant who quickly gained a new interest in their drinks. He flexed his armor coated arms as his fingers grasped the air at his sides as if he was restraining his own hands from finding necks to squeeze. With a surprisingly amount of grace he ducked his head and turned his shoulder with a practiced motion as he went through the door way, one hand on the sword at his side. As he entered their was the sound of metal on wood as his hooves clopped across the old floor and creaked under his massive weight. Dave's less sober partner shakingly raised a hand and with a snort that just about made your ears pop The One-Man Legion made his way towards the two. He glanced at the empty chair by them and snorted again as he kicked it aside with his foot and stepped towards the two with a massive pie plate sized hand out
"Money? Let us be keeping accounts up to the date da?"
The thick accent grumbled from the king-sized chest in a way that indicated any other plans would possibly make for a brief and exciting couple of seconds.
Dave fumbled with the suitcase in his lap and took out a bag filled with what was obviously the sound of gold coins and just about threw it at the massive monstrousity before him. Chernoboh: Seeker of Blood held the coinpurse in his hand and shook it once and grunted in satisfaction.
"Da... This being good."
His lips pulled back in what could only be described as a smile.... a smile not unlike a sharks...
"This being good. So far there being no reason to kill you. This is good. So what it job?"
Dave looked at his partner and swallowed and a smile went on his face, his was more like the smile of a mouse trying to convince a cobra not to eat it.
"Right... the job. Now Mr. Che~"
Dave looked at the horseman with confusion."
"Mister is name for... how you say... gentleman that no described me... I am not being of gentleness."
The two partners exchanged glances and nodded and the less terrified of the two continued.
"Right... as Dave was saying Chernoboh... We have a group that wants something that was lost in the Barrier Forest. A plane crashed in the forest that contains a case and this case is what we need."
"Hmmmm Plane in there... dangerous job. Not boring... hmmm"
"..RIght... We also need information on the forest itself. Which is why we want you and your partner t~"
Chernoboh's semi pleasant expression vanished as he glared at the two, his accent thickening.
The two glanced at each other again.
"Well you see we need to make sure the case is retriev~"
"So? You be saying I not good enough to gather fancy box? That I am inside the competent?"
"No nonon... pretty sure no to the last part...."
"Then why you have partner? I do this myself. I kill everything in way. Case is safe,. Simple."
"I am sure you can do so but..."
The man ran his fingers through his perfectly groomed hair and smiled his most endearing smile.
"Nobody can do everything so the people we work for just want a little insurance. After all no one can do it all."
Chernoboh's hand moved like a lightning bolt and sounded like thunder as his hand slapped down on the table in front of him. The floor shook from the impact as Chernoboh leaned in.
"Who be telling you I cannot be doing it all?"
Chernohob's gaze went to Dave who shriveled under the attention.
"Vas it him? Vas it you?"
Chernoboh's eyes were locked onto Dave and within his mind Dave's life was flashing before his eyes... he found he regretted most of it especially the choice that led him here. Dave's gaze went to the other hire and him whimpered.
