Job Details:
Job Name: Farmer’s Discord
Job Rank: D
Job Location: The Plains
Job Rewards: 50 XP/3,000 Huang
Job Prerequisites: N/A
Job Overview: The farmers are having issues with getting the cattle to produce milk, it seems they are stressed about something. Sit in the pasture overnight and remove whatever is stressing the cows.

Enemy Name: Hooter x2
Rank: D
Needed damage to take down: D
Description: Hooter flies at 5m/s and its mating call keeps the cows from sleeping.
Furious Mating Dance - In an effort to impress the female Hooter, the male Hooter attacks with its claws and beak in a furious display that causes C-tier damage.

"MooooooOOOOOOOOOoooOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" The sounds of nervous cows echoed through the night and all Reed could do was refrain from smacking the cows right across the face and tell them to shape up and act like real...cows. In theory, it seemed like the thing to do but obviously he understood that cows would not respond well to a strange man smacking them in the snout and yelling at them in a language they probably don't understand. I digress, Reed did not understand, and so he smacked the cow, wholly out of sheer frustration and sleep deprivation.

"MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!" This time the cow seemed agitated and for a split second it looked like it was going to stand up and charge head first towards poor Reed and his unpleasant demeanor. He backed away from the cows, which he was sure were all planning to kill him when he least suspected it, so he stopped, backed away, and sat up on a nearby fence, still keeping stringent vigilance in case whatever culprit or bitter spirit was agitating the poor bovines. In the distance, the young man thought he heard faint "hoo hooing," but to him that just sounded like normal sounds of night time. Owls, howling wolves or coyotes, the occasional drunk, middle-aged man who stayed out way too late to avoid his wife and kids and bitter existence. He was fully aware of the noises of night time being that he tended to sneak out from his parents' villa often to hang out with the locals. Minutes later, the faint "hoo hoos" seemed to get louder and louder, causing Reed some concern as usually owls stayed in wooded areas. This farm was nowhere near a wooded area. He jumped off the fence he was sitting atop to look around, maybe to spy an owl in the sky. Instead, he turned to find two outrageously sized owls zipping through the sky, and for a minute, it looked like they were copulating, which disgusted Reed, but that couldn't possibly be the case because...W H Y was the only thing that came to mind.

An ear-piercing "SCREEEEE" sound echoed through the air with even louder reverberation and Reed clutched his ears to block out the awful dissonant tone of owls' screeches.

"You have GOT to be FREAKING KIDDING ME" Reed yelled, clutching his wand in his hands as the abnormally large owls zoomed toward the farm grounds. They seemed to break coitus for a brief moment to clip Reed's shoulders and arms before taking off back into flight, their sharp talons ripping into his flesh. He merely grimaced and gripped his wand even tighter, waving it around in brilliant display as he centered on an owl in his sights. With impressive acrobatics of the hand, his wand zipped around, manipulating the sound rukh around him to create a venerable force to shoot at the closest bird of prey near him.

"Your days are numbered, you stupid bird! Cadenza!" The sound whistled through the air, striking the owl directly and knocking it from the sky to the ground. The other owl screeched in agony as it watched its lover fall to the earth. This owl, furious with loss, formed its body like a speeding arrow and raced toward Reed. Holding his body firm, the owl burrowed its head into its body and attempted to ram into Reed. The owl bounced off of Reed's borg, which successfully blocked this desperate attempt, and Reed waved his wand down, casting Rondo to turn his wand into a sword of sound. With fluid motion, Reed's sword hummed through the air, striking down the owl and sending it to the ground. Reed checked to see if the owl had perished, but could still sense some life in the creature. What a pity, it couldn't die in sacrifice with his companion. Reed walked over to where the other owl fell, only to find it alive as well. Perhaps it was pity, or perhaps Reed had attributed this scenario to his own misfortune, but he carried the two owls together to the farmer's house and knocked on the door. They answered, only to find the poor birds very badly injured from the battle.

"I...I didn't have the heart to kill them. They're in love, you see? Perhaps you could help them out? I don't know anything that could help them, but...but maybe you could...?" Reed felt hot, and there was a panic in his mind, and suddenly a tear ran down his cheek. He was crying? He hadn't cried since his sister's murder and suddenly he cries over owls? He handed the owls to the farmers, and left, barely hearing their thank yous and gratefulness as he took off back toward Magnostadt to retire to bed.

"No. No. I do not shed tears for insignificant birds when my own sister died," He said to himself, coming to his room and slamming the door shut. He fell to the ground by his door, and merely wept more through the night. She was still gone. She had still died. And he left her to die alone.
