I can take a hit for a friend, so the only question is: Do you want my help? ...even though it is a bit of cheating..." He asks, using mindlink, but keeping a pleasant smile on his face, like he didn't propose anything like this.

    "Yes, I guess you are right... I will need to wait till two or three hours before the fight..." He answers to Loiosh, using telepathy.
    He is surprised for a short while 'I guess it is his job to remind me of these things...' he thinks and smiles slightly '...I don't mind, that one for sure...'

    Danil arrived just in time to hear the last exchange.

    "Ah, you must be the Crescent Dragon. I've heard a lot about you."

    He bows and conjures up a blob of pink light in the general shape of a rose above his hand. He makes as if to pass it to her.

    Danil smiles. "Very well, Aisha. I must say, you've surprised me already. Everyone referred to you as the Crescent Dragon, so I assumed that was your preferred name. It's certainly fierce enough for you.

    So, you scouting out recruits for the Golden Band? Or just here to watch the fighting."

    "A bit of both. We can always use more soldiers, and the fighting is good enough. I personally wanted to fight, but they decided they didn't need another fatality."

    Let's see what happens if I prod the plot a little.

    "You know, I have been thinking of going into military service for a bit. I'm not the best-trained fighter, but I'm reasonably skilled, and I can do bits of divine and arcane magic, so I can heal allies and zap enemies. Is there a sign-up sheet or something, or do I just have to impress you?"

    "Go to the barracks and talk to the people there. I'm just the commander. I don't assign who goes where. Generally though the gold unit is made of the best of the best.

    While watching the Conversation between Aisha and the newcomer Jihn can't help but feel that he knows him.

    I don't think we have been introduced. I am John and you are?

    "Very nice to meet you, Mana." said Danil. "I imagine the guild must be in a good mood today, festivals such as this are always good for trade. Not to mention that fair Aisha here has, from what I've heard, left the orcs so nervous that they haven't bothered trade caravans for months. That's got to make this a good year."

    Aisha is certainly not what I'd expected. Considerably less psycho than those nobles made her out to be. I think she might be on our side after all.

    "The raids have been dying down yes...but you don't want to hear me talk about trading routes...even John here seems to have lost interest in them today..." She gives a glare at John before relaxing. "Aisha...weird, you never hear anyone call you by your name...they're all afraid of you...they talk about you like you're some kind of killer." - Mana

    "Well to be fair I have killed a large amount of enemy forces in my time, even if you're on the same side, people get afraid of soldiers with high kill counts. They say the more a soldier kills and fights the stronger they get. Like the universe rewards them almost." - Aisha

    Aisha - "The nobles talk a lot, but they have to keep an air among themselves. They can't show weakness or else their enemies will pounce. Of course you would know all about the social ways of the high courts."

    Mana - "Aisha! Watch yourself!"

    Aisha - "He is different. He wouldn't be in this part of the arena if he wasn't looking to social on a commoner level, and I'd like someone to find a noble capable of taking me on. They exile me...well...let's just say there's a big difference between someone who's been in dozens of battles, and someone who is mostly tea ceremony work."

    Aisha turns red. "The princess is very respectable...she's kind...but she has an air to her. She's got it all, Style, Grace, and Talent. She respects everyone and knows how to pick the best."

    Aisha - The princess is not like that...not her...she...I can't say it.

    It seems the princess did something in the past that embarrassed Aisha.

    "It's ok, Aisha. I don't understand, but God will tell me if it's anything I need to know. On a not-particularly-related note, do you by any chance know a Sir Zachary Smith? He and your sister seem to know each other pretty well, and they're sparring today. Oh, and do you mind if I sit with you for the tournaments? I think we might be able to share some thoughts regarding the champions."

    Danil's thoughts had once again splintered and piped up a full chorus.

    (Squicky Thoughts) Aisha and Princess sitting in a tree, K-I-S-...

    (Danil's Conciousness) SHUT UP!!

    (Snarky Observations) You're courting a second lady already? When you're still trying to figure out if you're going to marry the princess? Quite the little Casanova we have here!

    (Shipper Thoughts) There's something so... clean about her, despite what Squicky is suggesting.

    (Squicky Thoughts) Only suggesting? I thought I was outright stating!

    (Danil's Conciousness) I'll sort this out later, once I have a little more clue what's going on. Right now, pipe down. I need to pay attention.

    [OOC] Is the mind-link still active? I know it was supposed to last 40 minutes, but I'm not sure how long it's been. Oh, and if the mindlink is active, would Lexis have been able to hear that mental converation or only what I was sending him (in this case nothing).[/OOC]

    Mana laughs. "I know what happened Aisha..." she says teasingly.

    Aisha - "You do not!"

    Mana - "Everyone knows what happened. The princess snuck into one of your gold unit battles and ended up saving your life!" She says in a teasing sing-song voice.

    Aisha - "Sh-sh-shut up!" She grips her weapon tightly.

    Mana - "I was scared of you at first, but you're fun to be around!" Mana laughs.

    Mana - "You're not a very idealistic person are you?" She says shyly.

    Aisha - "Either way, I'm going to go. I have something I need to check out."

    Mana - "You're leaving? But they're just about to start? Don't you want to watch?"

    Aisha - "Yes, but I have my reasons. I need to go investigate something."

    Aisha runs off.

    Mana - "Look the squires are starting to duel!" Mana points to the fighting arena where two squires are standing off.
