Some days it is a good thing that I am very good at what I do. I woke up late one morning around 9am and as I am eating my breakfast Russa Edor come in the door and tells me a member of the The Black Shield has taken her daughter as a way to try and force her to sell the The Colorful Smoke. And although they had offered a fair price for the place she did not want to sell.
I was able to locate Ceila Edor through my mindscan I was also able to tell that there were 6 people guarding her. She being held prisoner in Gibberish at a warehouse. … I was able to sneak in through a window(an advantage to living in a hot place is the windows cannot be closed due to the heat) I had turned invisible and entered the back of the warehouse; and then I killed one of Ceila Edor captors. I had hoped to sneak around and kill a few more but the other guards noticed one of their comrades was missing. And that is when things got worse 2 of Ceila Edor captors were threatening to kill her if any more funny business happened. I had to act quickly when they tried to retreat from the warehouse. I was able to stop them just before they could get out with Fekura’s Binding fear and I knew they were in fear. while ther rest retreated I freed Ceila Edor by pulling the 2 remaining thugs off her and then I tied them up and after turning off the invisibility then I unbound Ceila. I returned Ceila to her mothers. Then we made sure she was safe in the Carry n’ Crawler because I knew she would be safe there because my friends could protect her. As I walked in I saw a giant of a man not as tall as me but he was massive. Lierin had questions for me and seeing as I had questions for her we decided to postpone our explanations.
Then it was off to the Abyzinian Night to trap Varia Brancaccio I had the letter informing Russa of the kidnapping the guards were waiting in the wings, and I was able to out wit him with my conversation skills. I knew he would be there because his guards would not have wanted to admit their failure. I was able to suggest to him that the The Colorful Smoke was the wrong place to expand to because it would mean dealing with me. So in return for his agreement I allowed him bribe his way to freedom that was preferable to having to face the penalties for his crimes. Then he tried to threatne me by saying Russa and her daughter are safe. But we had best not cross paths again. To which I replied Don’t give me a reason to.
The value of doing the right thing is a reward worth more than a mere 200 sp. And Russa and I enjoyed our own sweet rewards…
