Ayero stood in front of the palace wondering how to approach this situation. Shortly after the war had been won she received a summons from King Lagi, prompting her to leave for the palace. But now that she was here…she didn’t really know what to do. The only other time she had been here was during the coronation, and then she was under Ariella’s guidance. The Fanalis woman bit the bottom of her lip before steeling herself, walking up to the guards at the outer gates. Presenting her invitation, she addressed them. ”I’ve received a summons from King Lagi.” She handed over the parchment to the closest guard and folded her arms over her chest, doing her best to appear calm and in control. Inside she was worried that Lagi had bad news or something of that nature. After what seemed like an eternity, the paper was handed back to her and she was allowed through the outer gates.


It would take numerous security checkpoints for the woman to finally be allowed into a holding area of sorts while a servant went off to tell the King of her arrival. Ayero stood with her back straight and her arms folded, masking her uncertainty behind her usual stern expression. She had been thoroughly checked for weapons, her sword taken from her upon her arrival as a measure of safety. Though she complied with handing over the weapon as a show of good faith, the Fanalis woman felt naked without a blade at her side. She had left her beasts back at the inn, not wanting to involve them in palace affairs if she could help it.

Ayero would have been escorted to the dining room where Lagi would be waiting for her. Lagi was sitting at the table; it was much smaller than usual, due to the fact that there wasn’t much of anyone eating today but the two of them. “Glad you could make it, I’m sure that the guards didn’t give you too much trouble?” Lagi would say as he remained seated for this candle lit dinner. His face was masked by the shadows of the room; the most of what you could see was his figure and his big blue eyes.

“Well, take a seat Ayero, I had the chef make you one of your favorite dishes. It’s basically seasoned meats; some of the dishes also have a bit of a difference culture, between kou and reim. Though, racism shouldn’t necessarily exist in the food that we eat, our stomachs treat all of it equally

Ayero arched a brow as the servant led her to the dining area, her gaze sweeping along the expansive room for a few moments before turning to address Lagi. ”No, they were simply doing their job.” The Fanalis woman patted her left hip where her sword usually hung from, her voice sounding a bit detached while wondering why she was here. So this is why Lagi had called her here? For dinner? She wondered if he wanted to discuss something with her concerning the recent events, but the scent of cooked meat hit her nose before she could begin to question him.


The promise of food reminded her that she hadn’t eaten lunch yet, her stomach murmuring softly in agreement as she sat down. Now that she was even closer to the food, she could easily detect the spices used to season the meal. Holding herself back until he began, Ayero folded her hands in her lap and looked up at Lagi. ”It looks excellent, Lagi. But I must ask, why did you invite me here?” Her tone is more curious than demanding, genuinely wondering why he’d asked her to dinner.

Ayero, Y is but a crooked later, but if I may retort, why not? After a heard earned victory, the public themselves cursing my name, risking my life with all sorts of antics to ensure that Reim remains firmly planted, why would wouldn’t I want to spend the day with a beautiful woman? A beautiful woman who also happened to be my friend?” Lagi would say simply as his hand reached over to get his up of wine. If there was anything about this moment, Lagi wasn’t too reserved and wanted to speak his mind. “

“Actually, there are a few things I wanted to ask you. Ayero, do you fancy me? Or am I too much of a scrawny human being for your tastes? I know this is rather abruptly. But I’m not the kind of man that beats around the bush. It’s better to see things as they are, then pretend them to be something that they aren’t.

Ayero remained silent as Lagi spoke, taking in his words as she always did before formulating an appropriate response. Things in Reim had been wild and stressful considering the assassination of the Emperor and Queen-to-be, not to mention the final battle against Kaito. Lagi had been on the more surprising side of events, so it made sense that the man wanted to unwind with something familiar. His next words surprised her and Ayero felt her gaze slide to the side of the room as she gathered her thoughts.


After a lingering silence, Ayero refocused on Lagi. ”I am going to answer you honestly, Lagi. At this time I do not believe we’ve had enough encounters for more…intimate feelings to develop. To be blunt, no, I have no romantic interest in you.” Ayero’s voice rang with the clarity of her decision and she twiddled her thumbs atop folded hands in her lap, not wanting to sound wishy-washy and wanting to do Lagi the service of giving him a straight answer. She hadn’t expected the topic to come up, but she wasn’t entirely surprised that Lagi had decided to broach the subject. The halfling recounts the times they had met, their first meeting at a bar, on the street with Lagi’s dumpling cart, training before Lagi’s match with Decimus. Though she grew fond of Lagi over their various meetings, neither one had made a move nor had she felt any spark. She briefly wonders if his interest in her was largely for aesthetic reasons, but she brushes the thought away for now.


The Fanalis woman watches Lagi curiously for his reaction to her words, hands still folded atop her lap.

I see, thank you for being honest with me.” Lagi would say as he took a sip from the wine glass and placed it down firmly. His face still couldn’t be seen, in the shade of darkness that was around his side of the table. He opened up his own course that he favored and moved his knife and fork around as he continued. “After a war, I thought the time for romance would be appropriate. I always maintained a sense of admiration for you, but if mutual respect is as far as it goes, I won’t push myself onto you any further than that if you have no interest. I am not a fickle man…’

Now that was off his chest and out of the way, Lagi understood where he stood with Ayero. It was ok though, it’s how the cookie crumbles at times.” Speaking of which, where does your true interests lie when I announced that me and Kou would be continue to pursue a pact of peace?” How much faith do you have in me in comparison to Octavius?

Ayero tilted her head to the side, somewhat relieved to hear Lagi’s words. He had taken her response well and she respected him all the more for it. ”That admiration is mutual, Lagi.” As the King begins his meal, Ayero feels comfortable doing so herself. Tilting her gaze down, Ayero examines the dish of meat in front of her before using her own utensils to cut a slab of meat into smaller bits. As she raised a piece to her lips, the scent of foreign spices wafted against her nose. Instantly curious to see how Kou’s preparation of meat compared to that of Reim’s, Ayero slipped the piece of meat into her mouth and chewed thoughtfully.


Oh…oh god. This is actually good. The Fanalis woman was caught between horror and amusement upon discovering that she liked the savory sauce that was soaked into the meat. She takes another piece into her mouth as Lagi poses another question, frowning in thought. Swallowing her food, the halfling dabs at her lips with a napkin before speaking. ”The wounds of war are still fresh, Lagi. I’m not going to pretend that I fully understand the politics behind it or how it could play out in the long term, but I’m not sure how well Kou would be received no matter how good their intensions are.”


She pauses, reaching for the glass of wine that had been placed in front of her to take a slow drink. Lowering the glass from her lips, the woman lets a light sigh escape. ”I know very little about Kou, but I won’t deny that I hold some…distaste towards the country. But I hope that in the long run, this alliance works to benefit Reim. I have faith that you had Reim’s best interests at heart when making that decision.”

“I’m glad you like the food….. I made sure that the chefs took extra care in the mist of your arrival. Some would say that the best way to a women’s heart is her stomach, but…..yea..” Other than that, Lagi continued. Well, you saw him on the battlefield. He killed his father and his sister that same day in order to be emperor. It was planned, I knew all along. Isn’t that funny though? Years of tyranny could be ended by the drawing of the sword, and it’s made to seem so effortless when the emperor fights alone. Makes me wonder if his entire attitude towards things was a result because of his weakness in the first place, he needed to feel that power…. To be a conquer…. To be relevant…”

Lagi finally took a bite of his meal, it was pretty good. The servants were just happy to see him eat; he hasn’t eaten property in a while. “I did have Reim’s best interests, though…… I don’t think that most of the people believe me for saying that. “ After a while, Lagi decided to ask. “How’s your love life?”

Ayero’s face visibly soured when Lagi referred to the new Emperor of Kou, Yoshiro. Yet she did not interrupt him, letting Lagi continue his musings while she sat silently. She wouldn’t deny feeling the wave of anger that welled up in her body, but refused to let it out and instead allowed it to diminish to a soft burn in her chest. Even after all of this, they still would not be free of Kou. While she understood from Lagi’s words that Yoshiro had made sacrifices that day, Ayero still found it difficult to feel anything other than contempt for the man. She could not trust him in these troubling times, at least not yet.


Ayero was thankful when Lagi changed the conversation topic before her Fanalis temper got the better of her and she would be unable to remain silent through her anger. ”Uh…” She reaches to scratch the back of her head, running a hand through her hair as she strained to think. The woman’s “love life” consisted of the occasional drunken encounter and little more. A “love life” implied romance, a subject which Ayero knew little about.


”I’m afraid there’s not really one to speak of.” The Fanalis woman mused while twining red strands between her fingers before returning her hands to her knife and fork. ”And yourself?” She pauses, a realization hitting her. ”I’m sorry for what happened to your bride-to-be, Lagi.” She adds softly, cautious sympathy in her voice.

“Oh, not too experienced in the matters of love and romance? I would of figured otherwise, your popularity precedes you Ayero. Even after your win against Decimus, I think I met one of you pets. It was some kind of multicolored light red bird? It took one of my apples.” For once, Lagi actually laughed about it. It was pretty humorous from the way it all happened, your win against Decimus was superb, I saw it all happen. “ This actually reminded Lagi about something, Ayeo wasn’t present for his win at the coliseum when he became the first one to end Decimus’s undefeated record.

Though, Lagi would have gone silent after the mentioning Ruki.” I didn’t understand it at first, being tricked so efficiently like that, I was being played. Even with her death, I felt nothing but remorse, hatred anger, the simple fact that people could be consumed by their own greed. I wonder sometimes, was it love that made me like that? Or was it the fact that I couldn’t stand to lose anything, no matter what it was? Then again, so far whoever I tried to love…either leaves…steals from me and leaves..or betrays me and dies anyway…. The notable qualms of a bachelor I presume.

Ayero can’t help but let out a soft chuckle at Lagi’s words. Her eyes became unfocused for a few moments and it seemed as if instead of looking at him, she was staring over his shoulder behind him. ”I suppose that popularity is only skin-deep.” Her gaze snaps back to Lagi and a sheepish half-smile plays on her lips. ”So that’s where she took the apple from…I see you’ve met Tomato. Sorry about that.” At the mention of the actual battle, Ayero grins. ”Thank you, it was an incredibly tough battle. I think I even heard you cheering for me as I lost consciousness.” She pauses in realization. ”I regret that I was unable to attend your own battle against The Immortal Man, I heard it was excellent. I haven’t had a chance to congratulate you on your win, so…congratulations.”

Ayero pauses as the King becomes silent and the casual mood begins to fade, instantly feeling regretful at having brought up the death of Ruki. As she listened to Lagi recount his feelings towards the event, Ayero came to understand that his feelings for Ruki were complicated. While she didn’t know the intimate details, she could only guess that the woman had played on his emotions in order to gain his favor and support.

She can practically feel the distaste for Kou in her mouth, surprised by the sudden feeling she felt. Was it…protectiveness? She didn’t like seeing any of her friends hurt, Lagi apparently no exception. Still, she didn’t know if she could offer any words of comfort, trying to think of something to say as she idly swirls the glass of wine. Sighing, she raises her head and focuses her attention on Lagi once more.

”I’m sorry that you’ve been hurt, Lagi.” Her words were simple, but sincere. Ayero wasn’t good at providing comfort, worried that she’d choose the wrong words. But she cared enough to address his situation, doing her best to express her genuine sympathy.

It’s ok, I used to see pain as an unbearable thing that no human being should endure. The pain in our lives, the pain of the ones that we lose. What purpose does it serve other than to torment us? Then, I realized that it opens our eyes to things that were right in front of our faces. The birth of the pain of our city, was caused by our rotten relationship with Kou. By renewing our bond with Kou, that’s one less problem that we as a country wouldn’t have to worry about. Even if it means that we stay out of each other’s way, it’s better than fighting with another.”
Lagi might have matured just a bit since their last encounter.” Though, I guess what I’m scared of the most is not even exposure most painful thing affecting me anymore. I am afraid of a cold soul, being unable to feel after years of hardening. I feel that the soft spots make us vulnerable but they make us human…..right? With every life you take with your blade Ayero, what do you feel?

Ayero paused as she lifted the fork to her lips, lowering the utensil and raising her head to Lagi as he spoke of loss and pain. She hadn’t expected the dinner conversation to get so heavy, especially after all that they had gone through during the conflict with Kou. The Fanalis woman could not stop the hardening of her face as she recalled her own devastating loss of her family. It was senseless violence that had taken them from her, and now he was telling her that the pain and grief she felt had a silver lining? She could not blame Lagi for not knowing about the slaughter of her family, it was something deeply personal to Ayero that only few others knew of. Still, she wished he had chosen his words a bit more carefully.

When he asked her what it felt like to take a life she leaned back into her chair and closed her eyes, willing her anger down before it could overtake her. When her agitation was contained to a simmer in her chest, Ayero opened her eyes and refocused on Lagi. The death of Liber and the massacre of innocents by Kaito were fresh in her mind as well.

”I ask you to refrain from speaking about the pain of loss in that manner. While it’s good that you’ve chosen to see things that way, I cannot. Not right now. As for your question—do not ask me that again.” Her voice was stern and clear, devoid of any irritation and anger she was feeling. Ayero wanted to elaborate, to give Lagi a better explanation but it took all she had to keep her temper from boiling over.

“Right, I’m sorry about that.” Lagi would say simply, it didn’t seem like he had any reservations with what he wanted to ask. He was straightforward enough to ask the questions, which is why things were the way they were with him. However, it doesn’t mean that he was intentionally trying to be rude or disrespectful towards Ayero.” It was just a question, nothing more. Anyway, I suppose we should move on to something a bit more lighthearted. Now that the war is over, what are you planning to do now? When I first met you, I think you talked about taking on a blacksmith profession of the sort? Are you still planning on doing that?”

Lagi took another sip of his wine, he kind of felt indifferent at the moment. Could it have been because of the alcohol? Who knows? However, This conversation was moving at a rather strange pace for the time being. He gotten so used to be the king and making hard choices that he refused to avoid them anymore.

I want to expand my skills beyond sword and beast, so I’ve decided to take up the bow. My strength is in close range combat, but I’d like to be more balanced as a warrior.” She pauses, tilting her head upwards in thought.

”I’ve decided to go into the mountains to train, but I will remain in Remano a little while longer to help rebuild.” Mirroring Lagi’s movements, Ayero wraps her fingers around her own glass of wine and takes a long, slow draw from it. The Fanalis woman rarely indulged in fine alcohol and took her time enjoying the complex flavor before bringing the glass away from her lips. ”And what about you, Lagi? Any exciting plans beyond the alliance?”

Then again, what did Lagi know about raising children in the first place? “ Well, what happens after all of this? Who knows? Maybe ill look into that dragon siting from a long time ago? Some kin of beast of legend destroyed a town, which was never really resolved. The city is kind of vulnerable; i wouldn't want that kind of misfortune to head on towards reim. I also need to finish the new transportation alternative, or at-least get it approved. I have any things to keep me occupied.“ Lagi would then adjust his utensils. “ Other than that, I’ve been aspiring to make a new corps. I was hoping for you to stick around an be apart of it, but I see that you have other plans.

A brief thought passes her mind that maybe she wasn’t the best option for him, but she refused to entertain the idea at this moment. It would be something she’d have to think long and hard about, possibly even discussing it with Vin once they were reunited.

Ayero hummed softly as Lagi told her of his plans. ”It seems like you’ve certainly got a lot on your plate, Lagi.” The Fanalis woman paused for a moment and looked up at him with a light of interest in her eyes. ”Trying to revive the Fanalis Corps? You have Octavius’ support in this, I’m guessing.” The Fanalis Corps were considered the pride of Reim and restarting it might help inspire the citizens as the country heals.

That much is a given, but that’s not what I was talking about. I did say a new corps, paying attention to detail would do you some good Ayero. You wouldn’t want people to slip you up in little white lies . “ Lagi would take a sip of the wine cup and continue explaining. “The unity corps, it’s going to be dealing with Reim’s internal affairs. Not only that, it’ll be composed of Humans, Fanalis, and imuchakk. I’m determined to break the boundaries of the three races by having all of them in one group. By doing so, we could promote unity, as well as help each other. However, the relationship with the imuchakk tribe isn’t directly between Reim and them. It was through Kou through the documents of my kingship, and their involvement with our country, because of Garret and Azix.”
Ayero wondered if she knew what this means. ”This means that they might have more of a relationship with Kou than Reim, there needs to be some clarification if we are going to move forward. I was hoping I could send you over there if necessary. You can practice your shots in the lands of the cold; train yourself in the new and harsh terrain, as well as serving your country. But, I don’t like to impose, I would go, but now isn’t the time to leave Reim.

Ayero didn’t know what sort of “internal affairs” they would did with but made a note to ask Octavius later if she had the chance to speak to the other Fanalis.

A genuine look of surprise appears on her face as she lowers her glass, the King’s next words unexpected. ”I don’t believe Imuchakk is known for their skill in archery…I’ve a place in mind with capable teachers. If I become skilled using different weapons and fighting strategies, I can help protect Reim better.” The halfling pauses, considering Lagi’s words further.

”Believe me Lagi, I do want to help our country. And I will do what I can, but I am a warrior, not a diplomat. I’ve no military rank and my name isn’t known outside of the walls of the coliseum—wouldn’t that be insulting to the Imuchakk, to send someone without any sort of political or diplomatic power? I appreciate your confidence in me, but I’m certain there are better choices for what you’d want to accomplish in Imuchakk.” The woman pauses to take another sip of her wine, locking eyes with Lagi. ”Though, I suppose you would know that if you paid attention to detail.”

Perhaps it would do her some good after all to learn the basics so that she could continue to aid Reim, but she imagined politics to be a difficult and dirty game.

”Hmm…” Ayero arched a brow at Lagi’s next comment, ruminating on what little she knew of his past and the El Nagi clan. ”Really, now? I thought that one of Reim’s most powerful clans would have been involved in politics somewhat, but then again I grew up in a more…secluded area of the country. Mountain folk have little need for politics.” Ayero shrugged, downing the remainder of the glass of wine. ”I can imagine that you have experienced much more than the common man being King. Tell me, what have you learned?” The Fanalis woman gave the beast tamer a curious stare, not trying to hide her judging eyes.

I learned plenty of things. For starters, it takes more than hard work and talent to get ahead. This is the most important lesson of all. It is expected that you will do a good, even great, job. That being said, you need to differentiate yourself and let others know how you are contributing to the success of the business you involve yourself in, the country you represent, and the people who follow you. The consequences of just focusing on your work are that you will remain invisible, be passed over for promotions, and others will readily take the credit for your work. One of the reasons why I might seem outspoken and rash at times, but I would never want to fall behind in such a shadow. “

Lagi took another sip of his wine as he finished his meal. Afterward, he would continue. “It's important that others see you as reliable, consistent, and resourceful at all times. You have already built a strong reputation in one area Ayero. It’s time for you to evolve, don’t you agree?”

Ayero folded her hands nearly in her lap and fixed her normally intense gaze on Lagi as he spoke, giving him her undivided attention as a sign of respect. She remained quiet through his speech, digesting his words while thinking about her own future at the same time. She had admired Lagi for always putting Reim first even after being thrust into the position as the country’s leader, and from what she had heard he met quite a bit of resistance along the way. But he had persevered through tough times and she realized that it made her respect grow for him as a person.

Regardless, she was still a bit surprised that he seemed confident in her ability to succeed in a field other than fighting. Ayero herself wasn’t sure if she was capable of doing anything else other than swinging her sword at the enemy. Maybe he’s right. Maybe I do have the potential to be something more. Her eyes lit up at the idea of being able to make more of herself and possibly becoming a person of influence in order to protect her people. ”I…suppose I haven’t given it much thought. But you’ve given me something to think about, Lagi.”

I always have this philosophy that we are more tan what we are, breaking away from the social norms and the boundaries that we used to foster. I can be a warrior as much as you can be a Politian, but it mostly starts here. “ Lagi would point to his head. “ Keeping your thoughts positive. As soon as you say you can’t do something, you brain stops working. The better question is “how”. And then here…” Lagi would say as he waked over and placed a finger over Ayero’s heart. “ Right there, your heart, your will power, your desire to succeed. It’s one of the strongest things that we have. Such a will makes us daring to do bold things.” Lagi then leaned in for a kiss , it was sensual and it was only five seconds at best, His lips touched Ayero’s for the first time, there was still a taste of the wine that she sipped.

It definitely brings out the expression “drunk in love. Lagi would then start to walk away. “ I be retiring fo the night, I’ll send an escort caravan to take you home.

Ayero continued to watch Lagi carefully as he rose from his seat and approached her, still listening to his words but tracking his movements intently. The Fanalis warrior did not flinch when the King place a finger over her heart, instead remaining silent as she listened to what he had to say. She wouldn’t deny that it took a lot of willpower to get to where she was today, but she also had relied on the strength of her friends as well.

She doesn’t move a muscle as Lagi’s lips descend to cover her own and anything his actions may have made her feel did not show on her face. Normally she would meet unwanted physical attention with a sneer and a fist, but she felt oddly neutral about Lagi kissing her. Maybe because it happened so quickly?

And just like that, he walked away from her. She snorted at the caravan comment and waved the thought away. ”Good night, King Lagi.” She waited until he had disappeared down the hall before standing to depart as well. Geeze, men are all the same…
