Mai debated her options, then shrugged her shoulders, sighing. Well, I ain't got nothing better to do anyway. she thought, entering through the pub's entrance after him. She took a look around the room, and half smiled. "Seems like a popular spot." she says under her breath, feeling a little shy and like she stood out just standing there. She turned, noticing the lizard man and couldn't help but smile in amazement, having a fondness of lizards and reptiles. When she realized she was staring she became scarlet and looked desperately for Elric. When she spotted him at the bar she awkwardly recomposed herself and walked over to him, taking a seat beside him. Still blushing she chuckled awkwardly, parting a length of blue behind her ear. "Heheh, lizards, my weakness." she says to Elric softly, a bit embarrassed. Taking a moment to recompose herself, she turned to the barman with a blushing smile:



"I'll have a sweetberry wine cocktail, please." she said sweetly.

The barman scoffed, a queer smirk upon his face as he shook his head left to right lightly. "Sweet berry wine? This isn't the Capital, love." he says, fixing her a glass of red wine with no particular interest. He set it before her, leaning over the counter. "Twelve Plat'." he says, requiring 12 Gilex.

She slightly frowned at the barman, and looked at her glass despairingly. With a flustered face and a little puff escaping her lips from embarrassment, she reached back to her pack, and fetched out her coin purse, clinking with coin from the mission she and Elric had just completed. After shelling out twelve of the octagonal coins, she sighed again.

Elric turned to Mai, rolling his eye with a slight smirk upon her awkward entrance. "I can't understand how you still act shy around large groups, but in battle you are a typhoon of chaos, getting up close and personal with the enemy." His drink arrives, and he takes it, raising it to his lips once for a quick sip before adding: "It's contradicting."

He took another mouthful of whiskey, letting the ice clink in the glass, before answering her question. "No, not here. I live...further West. We'll have to pass through the Amaine, and though the forest has its dangerous sections, I somewhat remember the safer paths through the woodland." He says before, turning to her, his eyepatch's leather shimmered. "Speaking of the West and growing up, didn't you say you grew up in Beijio? Must have been a while since you seen your family yourself, no?" He asked.  

Thankfully, Elric backing her up made her at ease again, and the blue haired girl turned to the man with a smile. "In a battle, it just feels different. Especially since I know I have you backing me up man." she says, in a masculine, boisterous manner, punching his right arm playfully. "We're all roustabouts here, Elric. Though, it is true I was born in Beijio, I...." she paused for a moment, her lips just seeming to stop themselves as she looked past Elric, her memories of home taking over...

"Father! Father! Please look at me! Why...Why won't you say anything to me?! Its not my fault! Th-the relic...changed me, but I-I'm still...."

She winced, closing her eyes tight, then slowly winked them back open, as if suffering from a migraine. "I...don't visit home. They're all too busy with Beijio affairs anyway." she says with a reassuring smile, grabbing her glass of wine, and rose it to her lips, closing her eyes, her lips forming a weary smile as she drew in the blood red liquid.

"...your boy."

Looking at Mai in the odd yet high spirited manner made it hard for him not to smile. "Heh, well not that smooth. My body is covered in scars. If anything, I'm more rough." he joked, before grabbing the hand she held out, and clapped it with his other hand, before shaking her now balled fist in his hands vigorously. "Thank you for helping me out." he says grinning, before returning to his drink and took another sip from it.

Mai's eyes opened, and she blinked a couple times with her long lashes as he held her hand and shook it vigorously. Once he let go, returning to his drink, Mai shot up and headed for the bathroom, without looking at him. "I-I'll be right back, Sabby." she says walking briskly to the door of the ladies room.

Once inside, she walked to the sink, turning it on to splash water in her face. She looked up into the mirror, finding her face was absolutely scarlet.... One sip of ass tasting wine does not get me that red... she thought, and it only made it worse for her. She sighed. "...Dammit." she mumbled.

Elric raised a brow as his comrade left for the wash room. He blinked before shrugging and continued with his drink. Thinking about it, he met Mai officially about 5 years ago. She had left some military college and become a mercenary. Strangely, despite being green, she was rather capable fighter against those giant sand worms. Despite being 15, she dove right into one of them, swallowed whole. He had figured her just another casualty, but when she came bursting from its belly. The image was still harrowing in his minds eye:

He chuckled. "Best partner I could ask for." He says out loud, smiling as he took another shot. The image of her as a young girl, covered in worm guts and standing atop the crag most valiantly as the savior of their company, remained in his mind, replacing the harshness of the vile sac of flesh which had been the worms.

Mai finished composing herself, taking a little longer than she liked to have, but she was only slightly pink in the face now, rather than being as red as an apple. I don't know what came over me. C'mon, pull yourself together. He's just another dude. A good one at that. You can trust him with your life. she thought, clapping the sides of her face with both her hands before she made her way out, heading back to her seat beside Elric. She blushed yet, but more so out of embarrassment now. "S-sorry, heh." she says, nervously sitting back down, grabbing her wine. "So, its beyond the Amaine? Y-your home, I mean," she started. "Shouldn't we just use the highway? I imagine it would be safer."

Elric turned to her and then back to the bar with a playful grin. "Ah, you're back. You didn't fall into the toilet did ya?" he asked, jokingly of course as he took another sip. Once finished, he set his empty glass down and nodded. "Yeah, we're going to cut through the Amaine since it'll be quicker. Also... something in the wind tells me taking the Mijhen Highway will be ill advised. It's like a scent of embers, and sulfur. It tickles the back of my neck, and makes my stomach knot. We will not take the road..." he says in a cryptic manner, using some of the scouting techniques he learned, serendipitously enough, from home. "Call it a hunch." he adds, before calling over the bar man again, and this time asked for a full bottle of the firebrand whiskey, providing the platinum Gilex coins for the trade.

"Hrmmmmph..." Mai scowled at him with a drawn out grumble.

She softened her features a little, listening to his explanation. "Sure it isn't the whiskey talking?" she joked, before returning to her glass of wine, taking a long sip from it before setting it back down. "Well which ever the case, I'll trust your judgement Elric. We've been paired up in combat situations for a while now, and your gut hasn't failed us yet." she says still put off by the taste from the wine. It did not sit well with her tongue at all. Combined with the darkness behind the Bar Tender's mind, she was rather averse to drinking anymore. She noted that Elric was buying the full bottle instead of grabbing a second glass, and she smirked. "Ah, so are we heading out now then? I'm ready when you are, I don't think I'll be finishing my glass this evening."

He chuckled at her reaction to himself, and turned to the approaching barman. Once the bottle arrived, he paid the man and turned to Mai. "This is true, and here's to hoping for another five or twelve years of partnership, Mai!" He says taking her glass after she sipped from it, and brought it to his lips, downing the rest of the glass. With the declaration stated, he sets the glass down and stands up from his seat, collecting the duffel bag beside him, setting the bottle into it before zipping it back up. "Well, the sun is still high, but it won't be for too long. If you still want to, lets get a move on." he says clapping her shoulder before he began to make his way out of the pub.

Mai smiled and nodded. "I second that!" she says when she noticed he took her glass, and blushed as he drank from the same cup. Normally this wouldn't bother her or mark her attention, but again...she was set off slightly by it. When he clapped her shoulder she blinked, and nodded repeatedly. "Y-Yeah, following you're lead." She replies, chuckling albeit nervously. She stands back up and follows Elric out of the pub.
