PostSubject: And a Bottle of Rum   Mon Oct 13, 2014 5:38 pm

Grey left the Busted Flagon with a grin on his face, carrying a half empty bottle of rum in one hand and using the other to conduct a toon only he could hear. He stopped when called, turning and waving to his fellow crew mates before making his way towards the slums, cheerfully humming as he went.

Sitting upon a rooftop, Kent observed the sprawling city beneath him in Port Nowhere, A place where freedom rung true. He could really get behind that idea, but maybe later when he wouldn't have a coming war to serve for. He took it upon himself to look for other people who possessed great strength, and possibly a few companions. He knew that with this kind of attitude he was bound to find trouble.

Kent watched as someone strolled out of a tavern of sorts in good spirits. From his general appearance, he didn't seem to be a skillful fighter, but looks are often deceiving. He figured he wouldn't find anything taking such a passive approach regardless, so he descended to the streets following him silently.

Grey, used to the frequent displays by the other wielders in the city, most notably his captain, Captain Blake, was quick to call forth Oblivion, the inky black weapon appearing in his hand and serving as his baton. He used the weapon to continue conducting his tune, swigging from the bottle of rum as he did so.

Kent peered around the corner from behind him as he walked and saw as he summoned forth a keyblade with such ease. He was just like him, a lucky find for the first of many stakeouts. The guy was clearly an alcoholic, and he wasn't even sure how much of his wits he had about him at the moment, but he supposed this was just about as good as any person. He summoned Tenebrax, holding it firmly in his hand, the blade pointing straight towards the ground, a chilling breeze would sweep past Grey, pushing gently against him as he continued forward.

Grey paused for a moment, seeming to regain much of his senses. He resumed his steps, though more guarded. Oblivion rested at his side now, though he continued to hum, occasionally sipping the rum.

Kent frowned, the man was still unaware of his presence. He silently followed behind him, letting Tenebrax rest on his shoulders, at a slightly hastened pace. As his patience grew short the gentle winds picked up slightly gaining a little strength.

Oblivion began to spark in Grey's hand, and he slowly stopped in the middle of a side alley. "Following strangers isn't becoming." Oblivion discharged its static, blowing out the few measly streetlamps around the area, leaving them in darkness.

"That isn't my concern right now." The darkness didn't bother him so much, the moonlight was more than enough. His advance did not falter, and he wasn't far down the street from him now, watching carefully. "Should you provide what I require, this exchange will be very short, I assure you."

Grey sighed, looking at the bottle in the moonlight. "Captain Wright gave me this bottle. You're gonna make me drop it, aren't you?" Oblivion began to crackle again, occasionally providing its own light to the area.

"You know her personally do you? I suppose that means there's hope in changing your mind, your here for a greater purpose." He stopped 3 meters from Grey and stood ready for a few moments. "You may keep your or not, that's your choice. I'm with the rebel army, and I'm looking to put an end to the 'hero' of Euno I don't suppose you'll be having a hand in that will you?"

Grey paused for a moment, looking back towards him. "The Rage of Euno? The End of Mydar? You're going after General Rage?" Oblivion started to spark more intensely as Grey's anger rose, illuminating them at flashes at a time.

"Yes, but I'll take that as a no." Kent took an offensive stance, the winds circled his feet, a small whirlwind of dirt kicking at his heels. "If you should oppose me, I must warn you, I don't go down easily."

"Mydar was my home too, stranger." Oblivion continued to spark, and with its brief illuminations it became obvious that Grey was shaking. "And I suffered dearly at the hand of the Eunoians."

Kent did not falter, this man wasn't making a lot of sense. "Then what has you whipped up into such a froth? We should not be barring our teeth at each other."

Grey suddenly stabbed Oblivion downwards, into the ground, and all the pent up static shot upwards in a great bolt of lightning. "Because I can still feel their whips. I feel their whips every single night."

Kent took a deep breath, and sent Tenebrax away. "Then perhaps, we should return the favor." He had a very serious look about him as he said this. The wind around him dissipated.

Oblivion broke apart into wisps of light, and Grey cast a glance back towards him. "You're asking me to rush headfirst into Euno to find the butcher? And to whom do you swear your allegiance? Yourself? Kira? They purge Port Nowhere for keyblade wielders just the same as Euno."

"I have not sworn allegiance to anyone, but I have aligned myself with Kira to aviod being hunted, for a lack of better words. And as much as I would simply love to storm them, we need more to our ranks. Two men cannot take an entire army, no matter their will to fight. You and I are the first of many, to take the fight straight to him."

"Then I suggest you speak to Captain Wright. She is from Mydar as well, and she could give you your army." He tipped back his bottle before offering it to Kent. "Drink?"

"How very kind of you, but that bottle belongs to you." He got much closer to Grey now, not his usual battle distance like he was at before, and offered handshake. "I'm Kent."

Grey took his hand. "Pleased to meet you. Grey Hawke." He suddenly gripped Kent by the shoulders, turning him around and pushing him out of the alley. "C'mon, let's go see the Captain!"

"Eh?" he uttered in complete surprise, as his new acquaintance began parading him off in another direction. "I can walk on my own power, thank you." he carefully removed gray's hands from his shoulders, and continued on in the same direction. "Why do you speak so highly of the Captain. I haven't heard the best of things about her."

"Captain Wright saved my life. Plain and simple. She took me in, made me a part of her crew." He smiled, completely different than in the alley. "Simply put, I'm alive because of her."

Kent took note that they were walking into the same building Grey came from earlier, a place named "The Busted Flagon" Kent wasn't quite sure why anyone would want to drink out of a busted flagon, but that wasn't relevant. He could hear all the commotion from inside a block down the street, and stepping through the doorway proved as to why. Everyone in the place, with the exception of the man giving the drinks was crowed into one corner of the establishment, and a woman's voice could be heard clearly over everyone else's.

"'Ey Cap'n! Tell that story again!"
"What story, be specific."
"You know... that... one, why yous so famous."
"What? That again? I mus tell you that every week!"
"C'mon now!"
"Fine, fine, but the next time you start gettin' ideas, remember to hold yer tongue."

"I wasn't always a fighter you see, being on ships was just where I liked to be.
Cause there ain't no feelin' like sailing the sea!
But I didn't belong on that ship, stowaway I was, them fools on deck pissed of the wrong type you see, and before they knew it we were under fire, and the situation was quite bleak and not a one of the crew could think to fight back. So when their captain abandoned them, I took up the reigns, and lured those about us into a trap, when they boarded our ship, we readily swapped with them, adn cut the ropes leading back. They were stuck on our ship, and when the rest of the fleet caught up to 'em, they were gunned down with so much as a thought by their own men. And for the lives of my crew, in exchange they gave me the captain's hat, and told me, they needed a brain like mine."

Throughout the story, Kent was trying to part his way through the crowd, but they certainly didn't make it easy, he got there about the moment she had finished, and the crowd quieted down after laughing at the stupidity of her enemies, and he dragged Grey along with him. "You mind speaking on our behalf? She knows you better anyway..."

Grey nodded, though he seemed to be more enthralled by the story. Finally, he shouted out, raising his hand and calling Oblivion. "Oi, Cap'n! Got someone who needs to talk to you!" Oblivion sparked some before letting out a loud boom like a thunder crack.
