Cailyn blushed instantly but smiled regardless. She had seen the man sitting for himself in the Forest and somehow wanted to give him something. Most people in this land needed luck. And she had the feeling that he was no different.
“Ah..No need to thank me! I-I just wanted to give you something. Most people here have a terrible fate…I feel like I should do something to lighten their mood.”
She bowed to him before crossing her arms behind her back, still smiling. “My name is Cailyn. I’m still a human, so please…think twice before you kill me if you plan to do that.”
Pate’s shimmering gaze stayed locked onto Cailyn’s features for a few moments, a thoughtful hum heard from the back of his throat as he fingered the newfound pendant in the same manner.
“Of course not, my dear,” he reassured with a devilish smile, a glint in his eyes, “but what a kind offering; indeed, these are treacherous roads lined with many dangers. You must have a very good reason to come here. But who am i to judge, hm?” He chuckled warmly, in a way that could ease most people’s troubles all too easily. Leaning against his spear, his eyes met Cailyn’s once more with a nod.
“We are well met then,” he assures, “my name is Pate. I journey hither and thither on a sort of… treasure hunt… you might call it. So I could certainly use all the luck I can get.”
