As Anyu was walking along, she did not quite expect what was about to happen. She assumed she would run into strangers, and possibly wayfarers she knew as she returned from a long absence, but not quite so soon. A white cloaked traveller seemed to appear in front of her, as if from nowhere, but Anyu’s mind was distracted and hadn’t been paying attention to her surrounds until now.
Somewhat startled by the approach her shoulders stiffened, but were quickly relaxed once she grasped the situation. The stranger had lifted their mask and introduced themselves, and Anyu found their friendliness admirable. Not willing to be rude, Anyu lifted her mask so she could speak with them.
[< A pleasure to meet you. My name is Anyu. I’m sorry for such a delayed response, I wasn’t really paying attention and you snuck up on me a bit. >] Anyu smiled and laughed a bit in embarrassment as she proceeded to introduce herself to Swifter. Anyu was beginning to become curious about the white cloak, and figured this meeting was something she probably needed.
Swifter looked a bit sheepish. “Sorry ‘bout that” If the white cloak had been more hostile Swifter probably wouldn’t have popped the question but seeing how friendly Anyu was she tilted her head to one side. “Say, you haven’t seen a first-tier red cloak anywhere have you?” She motioned to about her nose height “small, shy, goes by the name of Axyl?”
Anyu tilted her head slightly and smiled back as Swifter apologized, it wasn’t a problem, but Anyu found it quite pleasant at how nice they seemed to be. When she asked about another wayfarer, Anyu guess the two of them were friends and must have gotten separated somehow. It wasn’t too unusual to meet others and part ways, but it seemed that this case was somewhat different.
[< I’m sorry, you’re the first traveller I have come into contact with lately. I haven’t really ran into other wayfarers for quite some time, I wish I could be more help. >] Anyu’s smile fell slightly as she sympathized with Swifter and their search for a friend. [< I’m not too terrible busy at the moment, so perhaps I could help you search for this Axyl. I’m sure we can find them faster that way. >]
