Job:
Job Name: Meditative State
Job Rank: D
Job Location: Kou
Job Rewards: 50 XP/3,000 Huang
Job Prerequisites: N/A
Job Overview: On top of one of the many mountains that surround the Kou Empire is a temple where a multitude of monks live. These monks at this temple have learned of a mystical recipe that is said to induce a powerful meditative state that can help one a find the answers to any problem that they may have. They need somebody to retrieve the herbs used to make these plants. They are found along the mountain ranges. They need 15 yellow bloom lilies, 5 purple tinted tulips, and about 10 green flute reeds. Be careful along the mountain side for bears and wolves are often spotted, it is not needed to kill these beasts, but one might have to in order to get to the herbs.

Enemies:
Enemy Name: Bear
Rank: D
Needed damage to take down: D
Description: Bear moves at 3 m/s and deals D-tier damage with claws and teeth.

Enemy Name: Wolf
Rank: D
Needed damage to take down: D
Description: Wolf moves at 6 m/s and deals D-tier damage with claws and teeth.

"So... your situation is you're missing the necessary ingredients to brew the recipe. And apparently, it is too dangerous to look for the ingredients you need on the mountain because of the wolves and bears in this area...? And apparently, you can't fight a bit...? And you want me to get the ingredients for you...? And you'll pay me for getting the ingredients. And you'll perform the ritual for free?" Aquila verified.

"E-exactly m-miss! J-just like you s-s-said it! F-free! No cost! P-please don't kill me!" the poor monk confirmed frantically.

The current situation went something along the lines of this: Aquila, having questions concerning the whole deal with Aseroth, had traveled to a monk. She had planned to ask him a question. According to rumors, a special recipe allowed him to find the answer to one's question. However, his stock had run out. Annoyed, Aquila proposed a deal with the monk. Because he initially refused to accept her terms, she pulled out her dagger and threatened him with it.

Aquila twisted and turned her head to both sides. Her eyebrows creased and her eyes darted aimlessly around. She felt out of place in the foreign mountainside. As she glanced around, she felt as if she had shrunk. Details enlargened in her mind, creating the illusion of a wider area to search. Already, she felt a strong sense of annoyance. But nonetheless, her motive provided her with enough drive to continue her search. She assumed she would find the green flute reeds near a river or a stream. Lilies probably grew somewhere around a body of water as well. She supposed she would probably stumble across the tulips. The information she had felt like a string keeping her from falling into a vast canyon of shadows. It wasn't much to go by but her eyes were dead set on the other side of the canyon.

She should have been aware of her surroundings. Her determination to spot the discreet plants fixed her eyes to the ground. Her usually sharp senses dulled in the alien environment. She had cast away any thoughts concerning wild beasts in the mountainside. With her eyes forward, she never noticed the sneaky wolf until it was almost too late. She definitely noticed a wolf when it was right up in her face, however. She had barely any time to react before the creature had created four, painful cuts upon her face. Blood dripped from her left cheek. Her hand immediately flew up to the cuts, where it glided across her skin. After withdrawing her hand, blood covered the outward side of her thumb and the knuckle of her index finger.

"Damn wolf," Aquila hissed.

She darted forward, her lips curving upward and stretching across her face. She 'hah' triumphantly as she plunged her dagger into the wolf's throat. Her eyes twinkled merrily, and she speedily leaped back, jerking the dagger away painfully. Bloodlust in her eyes, she twisted her body to the side on her left foot and kicked with her right. The wolf backed up slowly, limping because his left shoulder ached, sore from Aquila's vicious kick. She threw her dagger precisely, and she grinning when it hit the wolf's eye. The beast, tired of acting as her practice target, fled before Aquila could hit him any further. She hummed in amusement as she walked over to her precious dagger's settling place and picked it up.

"What a cowardly beast," Aquila mocked.

She happened to notice, at a fleeting glance, something purple among bushes of long-leafed plants. Curiously, she tread warily towards the bushes. She crouched low, balancing on the balls of her foot. She hovered a careful hand over the purple thing and tugged gently. She withdrew her hand and found a purple petal in her hand. She lowered her head to peer into the bush and spotted a group of purple tulips. Tediously, she reached out for the tulips and dragged them from the soil. Five, exactly. She grinned excitedly. One ingredient down, two to go. She stood up and placed the tulips inside her coat for safe-keeping. After her little incident with the wolf, Aquila's eyes flicked nervously around, her ears picked up more sounds, and she gripped her dagger tightly. If she was holding the tulips, they could potentially hinder her if a need to fight arose.

"Hm? What do we have here? What pretty little lilies, but I need them so I'll be taking them with me," she murmured.

After discovering the purple tulips, Aquila continued her search. It led her to a river, where she spied the reeds the monk had requested. She continued to thoroughly scrutinize the area, only to be disappointed. Still missing the yellow lilies but with the sun falling from the sky, Aquila admitted defeat for the day. However, she swore she would return the very next morning.

As she trudged back to civilization, a surprisingly silent bear ambushed her. Aquila, being in no mood to deal with the bear, rammed the handle of her dagger into the bear. The bear enraged, attempted to slash at Aquila. She easily dodged the incoming attack and landed a hard blow on the shoulder with her dagger. Deciding Aquila wasn't worth the difficulty, the bear ducked an incoming attack and sped off. Probably a wise decision, considering Aquila's frightening mood.

As she made her way off the mountain, she spotted something yellow gleaming amid green. With a triumphant grin, she realized she had stumbled across the last ingredient: the yellow lilies! She excitedly tugged the lilies from out the ground. With her spirits lifted and restored, she progressed to the temple rapidly. When the monk opened the door and spotted the cheerful Aquila, he almost fainted. Obviously, a creepy smile was not the way to greet a poor, timid monk.
