“What do ya mean she left?!”
Unbelievable, simply unbelievable. That stuck up Cofagrigus had the nerve to up and leave them without so much as a word. Filled with a sort of obscene rage, Yemir glared down at her smaller brother. The Mismagius gave a simple shrug of his nonexistent shoulders. “Baozhai stated that she had business to attend to. Personal business. Said not to bother following or asking her anything. So I didn’t.”
“And you didn’t tell me about this beforehand because?” The giant asked with a confused tone. “Well, you never asked-Before you get angry and yell at me. The only reason I did not notify you is because your history with Baozhai is… unpleasant, to say the least. Considering the frequent arguments and even threats you throw at each other, I figure you would be elated, no?” The witch wraith stated with a genuinely sincere tone, one that Yemir could not ignore as she grinded her teeth and sniffled a bit. “Yeah, you would be right. That snooty asshole get’s on my nerves plenty of times… But we still need her. Shit’s headin’ south and I don’t want to be caught with my pants down, so to speak. Figures. The one time I need her for help with something and she’s gone.” The giant grumbled with irritation as she slowly turned around and headed towards the door. Only to pause as she suddenly found Eudai barring her path.
“Have you forgotten our agreement?” Eudai stated bluntly, his eyes piercing like lasers as they met with Yemir’s gaze. The Gallade was about to interject when Eudai raised a tassel to stop her.
“W-Well no. But I do need to find Baozhai. C’mon, Eudai, can’t this wait until after this is finished?” The giant rebutted with an annoyed look on her face. However, Yemir’s plea had no effect on Eudai as he merely crossed his tassels. “No, you need your rest and that’s final. A few weeks have passed and your condition has only worsened. I can go find Baozhai. I travel faster than you. Your only priority is to rest. Understand?” Yemir was a stubborn person, but she knew Eudai was even more stubborn once his mind was made up. Sighing in defeat, Yemir hung her head low as she flopped back on her couch. “Fine… Wait, don’t you still have a job to attend to? I doubt yer employers would take kindly to one of their prized employees takin’ several weeks off to search for an undead empress.”
“Oh, no worries, I’ll be back before anyone notices. It’ll be like I was never gone.” The Mismagius chuckled in amusement at his own statement. Before he flew out of the house, he turned to face Yemir one more time. “I wonder, though. What could you possibly need Baozhai’s help for, if you don’t mind me asking?”
Yemir remained silent for a few seconds, her eyes darting towards the picture of the family framed on the wall before returning her gaze to her smaller brother. “Something I should have done a long time ago. Let’s leave it at that.”
