Reen hears knocking on the door and open it to find Beru. "I guess my two hours are up."Reen thinks as he pays him twenty coins for the two hours and heads to the front to start and count the rest of his gold. The Door opens and a man walks in. He is wearing jeans and a black jacket. He has his hood up, hiding his face. The man talks to Beru and Beru points over to Reen. Then man walks over and sits next to Reen. He is about to talk but is interrupted.
"This better be a serious issue. If you came looking for a mercenary, then you are asking for someone's life to be thrown away. So tell me, what's your name and what's your job"
"The name is Damon. Why is your arm taped up? Is it injured?" Damon asked.
Reen looks over at him, "No it is not injured, why do you care"
"I'm looking for people who can fight in an army. I already have enough wounded, so I was making sure that you were at 100% before I hired you".
"How much are you paying"
"We will figure out prices after the war is over. If we win, you should get enough to last you the rest of your life".
"And If we lose" I asked.
"We all will be dead"
"I'll join for a week then decide if I'm willing stay. I at least would like to see if their is even a fighting chance before I join, Deal?"
Damon shakes Reen's hand "Deal".
He follows Damon outside they head to a carriage. It was the average white, two horse carriage. What made it unique was the weird symbol that was on the side of it. It was a crown of thorns that was struck by lightning. Before I enter, I notice the two men who were playing with the cards were following us. "We are being followed" Reen tells Damon when he enters the carriage.
"What do you mean" He said, looking confused, apparently he didn't notice them. Inside the carriage he took off his hood revealing his face. He had green eyes, a crooked nose, a scar next to his left eye.
"Change your normal rout to throw them off or do you want your army to be found".
"If you are trying to stall, just know your week in my army does not start until we are there" He responded. "Let them find the army, many noble families have armies so it won't be anything suspicious"
