"Neither was I, but okay." she said with a small laugh. She watched him bow and extend his hand for a handshake. She shook his hand gently before dropping her own. "Oh, no, I’m fine, don’t worry. Nice to meet you, Soul. I’m Anemone, but everyone calls me Annie." she said with a smile.
Soul looked at Annie with a curious look.” Anemone huh? If I may ask where does such a name come from since I’ve never heard of someone with such a unique name. Annie is easy enough to say ,so It’s a pleasure to meet you Annie.”
It was getting rather late, but then again, movies in the evening ended up ending just as it was getting dark. Anemone sighed and started walking towards her home. It was about a half mile away, and she didn’t mind the walk. After a little bit, she bumped into someone and stumbled. “Sorry!”
Soul had found himself in a strange place indeed. Not recognizing anything of the world that now surrounded him he walked around for some time in hopes he would find something that would give him an idea where he was or more importantly how he got here. As he walked along his mind wandered to what possible ways he could have ended up here. It had to have been magic ,but how did it cause me to end up here? Finally feeling frustrated he felt something or better yet someone bump into him. He looked forward to see a girl with dark hair apologizing for what had occured.” No no Miss let me apologize. I wasn’t paying attention to where I was heading.” He bowed to the girl then extended his hand out for a handshake. “I hope I didn’t cause any harm. My name is Soul by the way.” A slight smile crept across his face as he attempted to appear normal.
"Well I can ask the same of you why where you looking at me then?"
"Because you looked at me first, now why were you looking at me?"
"Well I looked at you because you looked at me so why where you looking at me looking at you?"
"If I’m asking you why I would want whatever’s in that bag, do you honestly think I would know what was in that bag?" she asked, tilting her head. "Call it whatever you want, still sounds like a bribe to me."
"I guess it sounds like it." Soul untied the small bag. It was only about the size of his palm and didn’t appear to be able to hold much."Well then how does this sound." Soul turned the bag over letting its contents fall into his hand underneath it. A steady stream of gold coins began to flow from the bag."Does this please you?"
"A bribe? Really? What makes you think I’ll want whatever’s in that bag?" she asked, tilting her head. She didn’t really care about what was in the bag to be honest, not unless it was something useful.
"A bribe? Don’t be silly I prefer the word incentive. A bribe is something that Shayla would do. Besides do you know what’s in this bag?"
"I could, but why should I let a stranger into my home?" she asked, tilting her head. "I can show you something interesting, but unfortunately, it’s not weapons and armor."
Soul thought for a moment then moving his hand behind his back brought forth a small tied bag.”I see you have a good point, So how does this sound? You show me something interesting and I’ll give you what’s in this bag.” He shook the bag slightly creating a noise similar to coins shaking together.
"Mansion actually, and yes, I live there. Looks can be deceiving, and unless you’ve been inside, I can understand why you say that. But if you were to go inside, you’d see it’s as modern as any other home." she said with a shrug. "But honestly, when we got the place, we kind of made it look creepy on the outside. It’s not as bad as it looks, I swear."
Soul laughed to himself.”Well then if that’s what you claim why don’t you prove it. I came here looking for new armors and weapons ,but seem to have came up empty handed. That being the case maybe this trip won’t be a total waste if you where to show me something interesting.”
