It would be their first time on a mission together, and certainly, Chrono’s first time being dispatched to begin with. Tasuku, however, was no stranger to these happenings; as one of the Prince’s veteran soldiers, he was sent on these missions often, and more often than not came back successful.
Today, the two young knights were investigating suspicious activity in the port town, riding across the green fields together on a single white horse–the one Tasuku had tamed a long, long time ago. Chrono sat behind him and held on tightly, because alas, none of the horses but this one had taken well to his demonic presence. Tasuku would’ve preferred travel by dragon, but it would be far too conspicuous, and there were few towns that were equipped with lodgings for a full-grown dragon. The whole voyage would take about an hour of riding, Tasuku looking up at the first sight of the town’s skyline.
“We’re getting closer to the town.”
“I want you to be careful, Chrono-san, especially since it’s your first time. We think the suspicious activity is related to the smuggling of drugs and other illegal things, but we can’t be sure. At any rate, the people involved will do anything to keep their secret, even kill–so we have to exercise caution. Do you understand?”
