PostSubject: A New Arrival   Thu Oct 23, 2014 5:38 pm

Grey angrily paced back and forth in front of the Wastes gate entrance to Port Nowhere. Apparently, due to his breaking of a midshipman's arm during a brawl a few days ago, he'd been assigned guard duty for the rest of the week. He slashed Oblivion back and forth a few times, kicking up dirt and occasionally looking out towards the dunes of the large desert, doubtful that anyone would show.

She came riding over one of the many dunes on the stolen --- borrowed --- stallion, pink-red hair slashed with sand, mouth dry, dress caked in sweat. Her grey eyes met the gates with hope even as dehydration threatened to take over her and the horse both.

Grey rounded as he caught sight of her, waving her down, the action somewhat hilarious due to the fact that he was holding a keyblade in one hand as he did so. "Ho there stranger! What brings you here!?"

She reached a hand out as she approached, calling forth her Keyblade but receiving only her bow. "Ha....il..." She muttered, clinging to the saddle horn with what strength she had left.

Grey rushed forward instantly, Oblivion disappearing into the air as he sprinted forward. He met her halfway to the gate, instantly pulling his silver flask from his belt and unstoppering it. He held it to her lips, the rum dribbling into her throat. "Drink. It's not water, but it'll tide you over until we can get you some."

She took it greedily, tilting her head back and hissing softly at the burn. "Yo, ho, ho..." a crooked smile appeared on her face as she looked at him, her eyes unfocused. "Rosaline.... Banderas..."

He leaned her forward so she was resting on the horse's saddle. He took the beasts reins and guided her towards the gate, signalling for them to open the gates. He rubbed her back comfortingly, allowing her to know that everything was okay. He watched her slump even more as she slipped unconscious.

When she awoke she would find herself tucked into a bed, a glass of water on the nightstand beside her, and a larger bucket of fresh water on the floor beside the bed. Grey sat on a stool in the corner, watching her with polite concern.

When she stirred, her first instinct was to try to summon her blade, but she failed miserably, too weak to do so. Fumbling, she reached absently for the catches of her corset, trying to lossen it under the covers while her eyes looked around groggily. "Hail?" She muttered once more, laughing to herself hoarsely.

He raised a hand in greeting, offering a relieved smile as he saw her stir. "Hail. Glad to see you're awake. There's plenty of water here, so drink you're fill. Just don't go too quickly. You've been dehydrated, so it'd be better to go slow and steady rather than fast." He stood, headed to the side of the bed opposite the water, and knelt beside her. "If I had to guess, you rode her straight from either Mydar, or Euno... Running?"

"Both," she said, trying to ease herself to sitting up so that she could drink. "Lieutenant Rosaline Banderas, Euno soldier... former soldier." There was something very bitter about the sound of her voice, something detached and vile.

He held out his hand for her to shake. "Grey Hawke, The Thunder Dragon of the Southern Sea." While his other hand stayed outstretched, the other reached to grab the cup, offering it to her.

She shook his hand easily, taking the cup and drinking greedily once more. "For all that is good and holy, please tell me this is Nowhere?" Her eyes scanned him, the room, as she slowly began to focus and regain energy, curious and observative.

The room itself was drab, though the bed was big and comfy. Wood walls and floors, simple electric lighting, things of that nature. There were few personal effects, though the largest was a great big Mydarian war banner hanging on the wall. Grey nodded, still smiling, trying to keep her comfortable. "Aye, this is Port Nowhere. If this is where you were aiming to end up, you can relax. You made it."

"Ohhhh, let's party." She said, sitting up fully and smiling. "When I'm better, perhaps... how'd you get my dress off?" She looked at her underarmor attire, surprised.

He shrugged, gesturing to the closet where her dress was hanging. "It took me several long minutes and a lot of careful tugging." He chuckled, still smiling. "You can stay here for as long as you want, by the way. I don't get guests here that often anyways, and this is one of the, er, cleaner places in the slums."

She nodded, looking at him curiously, though her eyes drifted back to her battle gown where she took a damage tally of it. "Thank you... Grey?" She blinked and looked at him, "That's an unusual name."

"I had to give it to myself. I don't remember my birth name." He said simply, his voice still light and conversational. "Rosaline isn't too normal a name either, so I don't think you've got room to judge." He laughed, offering her an easy smile.

"Noble, supposedly." She said, combing through the longer edges of her hair with her fingers. "I don't even know what's real anymore."

"Well, I can pretty much assure you that this is." He said with an everlasting smile. "And if you were trying to get somewhere safe, this is the place."

"That was the goal," she said, working out a particularly tricky knot. "Just call me Rose. Only my superiors and... parents?" A few blinks followed as she fought to make sense of her mind. "Ah, anyway, it's just Rose, alright?" The woman chuckled, and the sound was easy and free, "It's nice to say that without being scolded."

"Normally, I'd take you to the Captain to introduce you. She likes to know when new arrivals pop up. Buuuut she's presently out to sea." He frowned some as he finished, clearly displeased. He cleared his throat and shook his head, smiling once more. "But regardless, I assure you we're happy to have you here, Rose." He stressed her name, hoping to make her more comfortable with it.

Her lip twitched upwards just slightly, and she took another drink. "Who else is there? I've only heard vague rumors." Regardless pf how trustful she seemed to be, she nonetheless seemed to be studying everything he said or did. There wasn't a full level of comfort with him, with here, just yet, and the flashes, the blurred lines between reality and fabrication making her head spin and pound.

He pulled a hand out, mumbling to himself and counting as her did so. "There are anywhere from 4 to 29 ships docked here at any time. Captain Blake heads the Armada, and she doesn't usually leave, but every so often she gets antsy and needs to head out to sea..." He continued mumbling for another minute or so. "There are about 500 civilians who aren't members of a crew. Most crews are around 20 to 30 strong..." He shrugged and offered her a smile. "Eh, talis est vita. Such is life." He said, effortlessly speaking old Mydarian.

Rose knit her brows in response to this, looking at him curiously at the sound of the words. "What is that?" The sound of it panged the back of her mind, but she could not rightfully place it; mentally, she still held fast to the number of people.

He laughed it off. "Sorry, it's old Mydarian. I guess it's sort of a dead language now..." He shrugged some, sitting beside the wall. "I'm Mydarian by birth. I was 3 when the crusade started. I worked in the quarries with the other slaves until..." He held out a hand, Oblivion appearing in his grasp. "Until this came along. Then I freed myself, and I ran."
