When the Five Generals left the room, the three were left in silence.
Princess Hellion left out a sigh before she spoke. "The truth is, my mind is whirling with different thoughts right now. I don't know why this is happening to the Kingdom. They really planned to assault the Kingdom while I'm away."
Ms. Reene stood up to comfort the distressful princess. She tapped her shoulders as she rubbed her back.
"It's not your fault Princess Hellion. Maybe it's just a coincidence. Nobody knew that you're going to leave the Palace except from me, the Five Generals, Sancho and Dr. Firia."
"Ms. Reene is right, Princess Hellion. It's not your fault, so don't get so depressed," Sancho uttered.
Hellion didn't answer for a while. She's still thinking as to how to save the Royal Doctor, and to retrieve her father's sword. Then, an idea came into her mind.
"I have an idea. I hope it will work," Hellion said as she hurriedly left the room.
Reene and Sancho just looked at each other before they followed the princess.
In Hellion's room…
Hellion is sitting on her bed, holding some papers on her hand.
"I want you to relay some messages to some people, Sancho. I'll give you the list later," Hellion commanded her right hand.
"As you please, Your Highness," Sancho uttered though he still don't know what it's for. "I'll prepare the carriage for my departure." He vowed then he left the room.
"I have a favor to ask you, Ms. Reene," Hellion said.
"Anything for you, Princess Hellion."
Hellion sat in front of her huge mirror and held her long, red hair.
"I want you to cut my hair up to this length," she said as she positioned her hand up to her shoulder.
"What? That short? Are you sure?" Ms. Reene asked in amazement.
"Please?" Hellion pleaded.
"Hmmm, okay. As you please," Ms, Reene said as she took the scissors and started cutting Hellion's long hair.
The next day…
It is still dawn. The sun hasn't shone from the east and cool wind still rising up through the air.
In Queflin City, a city far from the kingdom, there is this one place where people never sleep. A saloon called Sagev Tavern. It is one of the famous taverns where people mostly come. Warriors, soldiers, warlocks, hunters, thieves, and merchants all over the kingdom came here often to drink, gamble, rest, and to pick fights.
Hellion took a sip from her root beer as she scanned the surroundings again. Smokes are all over the place and everyone is busy doing their own things.
" !#$%^&* it! It's you again?" a voice exclaimed from the other side of the tavern.
Hellion simply look at the group of people who's playing poker as their crowd gone wild due to some misunderstandings.
" !#$%^&* you, Loki! Are you trying to play your dirty games on me? Don't underestimate me, !#$%^&*!" a ferocious warlock exclaimed as he stood up in rage, throwing some pieces of cards towards someone.
The guy called Loki snickered out loud. "You know me Luc. It's not my kind of game. It's just pure luck," he uttered and just shrugged his shoulders.
The warlock called Luc just glared at him in anger, but he couldn't do anything because he surely knew who is he dealing with. He's just Loki, the infamous Sly Thief of Dentora Region, south of Scarleticia Kingdom. Luc just walked away from the table and went towards the bar, got a drink from the bartender.
The infamous Sly Thief of Dentora Region. What a catchy title, Hellion thought to herself.
As she continues to scan her surrounding, her attention was caught by a figure at the other side of the saloon. A man wearing a leather jacket, with short black hair, and emotionless purple eyes, is looking at her, rather staring at her.
She held gazes with him for a moment. But for whatever reason, she felt something weird and held back her gaze.
Hellion tried to ignore the weird feeling towards the guy and just kept her eyes at her root beer glass.
Ten minutes had passed; Hellion stood up and left the saloon. She went nearby the oak tree at the back of the tavern.
There, she saw a woman in a wizard suit, with long, upheld, white hair, and a pair of yellow eyes full of wisdom. At the other side of the tree, there were two children; one is a shy-type girl with long, blonde hair with green eyes, and a cheerful boy with brown, round hair, and brown eyes.
Two more, Hellion muttered as she stood at the other side of the tree.
A couple of minutes had passed; a man arrived at the nearby oak tree. Hellion smiled to herself when she saw that it was the Sly Thief of Dentora Region, Loki.
"May I ask who among you four called this rendezvous?" Loki asked to all of them.
Hellion stepped forward from the other side of the tree. "I am. I'm Fenris Fenrir, the one who summoned all of you," she uttered.
The other four stared at her for a while. Hellion became nervous for a moment that her disguise might fail. She's now wearing a hunter suit, a sleeveless blouse with a short jacket over, a short jean, and strap footwear. Her now mid length hair is braided up to her back.
"You are Fenris Fenrir?" the Sly Thief asked. "I heard that you are one of the Royal Guards in the Palace, but no offense, you don't look like one."
"What do you mean?" Hellion's right eyebrow slightly rose.
"You look like a princess rather than a Royal Guard," Loki uttered with a small grin on his face.
Hellion paid no heed about Loki's tease. "Anyway, may I know your names again?" she asked the other three.
"I'm Quincy Irine, and I'm from Geffen City," the lady in a wizard suit uttered.
The Adroit Mage of Geffen, nice, Hellion thought to herself.
"Hi, I'm Crowley Fukien from Payon Town," the cheerful kid with brown hair said.
"Ah, hi, my name is Sara Kreuger. I'm from Prontera City," the shy, little girl uttered.
"And of course, I'm the Sly Thief of Dentora Region, Loki Qlon at your service," Loki uttered in a teasing voice.
Hellion rolled her eyes in disbelief, but even before she could comment, a voice spoke from the backside of the tree.
"I'm sure this rendezvous will not be complete without me," a voice uttered.
Everyone looked at the owner of the voice, and Hellion slightly gaped when she saw the last member of the group.
He was the same guy that keeps on looking at her in the tavern a while ago. They held gazes again for a moment.
"Chaos Lockheart, an Izlude Knight," the guy with black hair and emotionless purple eyes uttered.
Hellion couldn't utter a word for a moment. It's not that she couldn't believe that this guy is one of the group, it's just that she had this weird feeling again towards him.
"Chaos Lockheart? As in the Valiant Knight of Izlude?" Loki confirmed.
"If that's what you hear, I can say, yes," Chaos uttered.
"So, I think we are complete now. What are we going to do now, Ms. Fenris?" Quincy, the mage, asked.
Hellion cleared her throat first before she spoke. "Our mission is to travel to L'Reinoulle to save the Royal Doctor who has been kidnapped, and to retrieve the sword Sentinel Breeze. After the mission, the Princess will give you the payment she mentioned in the letter you received," she explained.
"That would be fine," Quincy uttered in agreement.
"As long as I will be paid, I'll do it," Crowley said.
"It's okay for me, too," Sara said in a low voice.
"The payment is generous enough, so count me in," Loki exclaimed.
Hellion waited for Chaos' confirmation, but the latter is just looking at her.
"Okay, let's go now to our first destination. Where do we go from here?" Chaos asked while still looking at her.
Hellion tried hard to ignore the weird feeling and answered the knight. "We will start going west, until we pass three to four cities, we will go south."
"Let's go," Chaos uttered, still emotionless as he walked towards west.
"Let's go!" Loki and Crowley uttered in unison as they followed Chaos who's walking ahead of them.
Quincy and Sara just followed the boys, as well as Hellion at the back.
