OOC: Kevin, My meeting with Valk's character is probably in a time a few days before your post. So by the time of my next post, ill have time skipped us to a day after the intro post and be within the city.
Leowyne watch with interest as the younger girl clambered on beside her. She carried little in terms of baggage and was traveling alone. Quite impressive by her books. Granted that she herself went through similar travels, Leowyne was always protected by Vichy when she was younger. On her solo journeys, God and the Temple's gift of training and combat skills saw to it she survived. The girl looked like she was driven by neither necessity nor mission, but rather, adventure and experience. The courage to leave one's safe haven for it was reason enough for a decent dose of respect. Once well seated, Leowyne cracked the reins and the wagon went off again, faster. With a passenger, it was best not to dawdle like before.
"Thank you so much for the ride, good Lady. My name is Vesper Ska--Kasid. Vesper Kasid."
Leowyne wasn't listening at first and was distracted. She could have sworn she heard a pause, but dismissed it as her not concentrating.
Hm? Oh! Indeed. How rude of me Ms Kasid. It is nice to make your acquaintance. My name is Leowyne Grandeeny. I am a member of the Order of the Temple.
Allowing a few seconds of pause, Leowyne quickly thought of something to say, just to make it not so awkward. Temple scholars and monks/nuns were much better received than Paladins and Knights, purely on the basis that they were a bit more intimidating. The warrior arm of the Order usually appeared at areas of upheaval as relief, so seeing them in peaceful areas such as the heart of Gallica was odd.
If you don't mind me asking Ms Kasid, I have noted you are traveling by yourself? While i applaud you for it, i have to ask... have you not heard of the disturbance on the Toulousa and Castilla border? It may become rather unstable.
