"I see, in other words you are telling me that you will be relinquishing your services here to go back home correct?" Didier clucked her tongue as her grin faltered. "No matter. I was just thinking about firing you with grievance pay prepared."
From her pocket, she threw a small bag of that jingled as it flew at Sprout.
"As for your gratitude, you can keep that. You may need it for someone else in the future. Hmhm"
[[Rears her ugly head hello everyone I swear to god I’m not dead]]
He nodded, extending his hand and shaking hers. “That would be really nice of you, miss.” He stated, grinning slightly, he was glad that someone offered some guidance, after all, the zone looked quite confusing to him. In places like this, it was always good to have a guide.
"Mm, I assume you are the guardian of this zone?" He asked, blinking a couple of times as he let his hand fall down to his side, he preferred asking first, so he wouldn’t be taken by surprise if she wasn’t actually a guardian. "In any case, it is a pleasure, I am Miedo." He bowed his head slightly- A habit of him, it seemed, soon putting his hands behind his back- Another habit, as well.
"Why it would be my pleasure, monsieur. Especially since this place is awfully dangerous to strangers."
Yet the next question it didn’t really knock her off balance. In fact she was expecting such. But of course playing into the hand of a friendly facade, she raised a hand to her mouth and let out a gasp of mock surprise.
"Oh did I give myself away? Well, no matter. I am the guardian of this glorious zone. However, you may just call me Didier.”
The guardian chuckled, a firm handshake that followed as well. It was safe to say man was not an idiot, that much was certain.
"And by what name should I call you, young man?"
Being distracted by the buildings, of course, he didn’t even notice the presence of the guardian, which surprised him slightly when she spoke up, no wonder she’s the guardian of surprise.
He blinked a couple of times, then glanced down at her. She clearly wasn’t an elsen- was she another wanderer? Or perhaps the guardian? The second option was most likely, as she did describe the zone in a way, in a rather prideful way as well.
He tilted his head slightly, then decided to speak up. “I am visiting.” He stated, as it was true, what else would he be doing there, in any case? “This zone looks really interesting, after all.”
Ah yes, it did appear that this male was merely here by chance. Perhaps using such forceful marketing schemes would probably scare the poor thing off. In turn she straightened up whilst extending her hand towards him.
"If you are visiting, then it would probably be wise if you were to have a guide yes?" Didier mused, as she gave him a cocky smile. "As for me, well… you could say I am well versed around these parts, so perhaps you would not mind considering me?"
The fact that zone 1 was so quiet at times bothered Miedo- It’s not like he didn’t like silence, it was just boring at times, especially at the smoke mines, where the secretaries’ screams were practically muted, unless they were inside the mines. It didn’t take him much to go out of his office and walk outside of the mines, towards a red cube, perhaps he should visit a zone he hadn’t seen before?
A bit of silent walking and evading secretaries later, he made his way to the cute and transported to the nothingness, which, of course, was as lonely as usual. Deciding a random direction, he made his way towards a teleport point, which lead to the zone that held the element of surprise.
The zone from a start looked … Different, of course, it had color, not like the one he resided at. Glancing around, slightly confused, he made his way deeper in, observing everything and careful to not do any disaster or look suspicious. He wondered what was further in, it sure looked interesting, after all.
Everything that had to be done that day was already going smoothly, thankfully Didier did not have any repurcussions about the elsen’s work. It was one thing off of the guardians mind at least. Although the tasks were mundane, there was a creeping feeling that things might be turned from their course.
Which was exactly what she was hoping for.
During the rounds she was making, she was pleasantly surprised by the presence of a doctor. At least, he did appear to be uniformed with the job description. The woman merely raised her brow before addressing the fellow.
"Why good afternoon monsieur! My, my I do wonder what would bring a young man such as yourself to the most prosperous zone of them all?"
[[Hey guys I haven’t forgotten about the flower crowns, they should all be done tonight hopefully hehe]]
[[Sorry this took so long but here we go! full under cut]]
