    The Evening Star lives up to its dazzling name, displayed as one of the more pleasant sights in Rauru. A simple but elegant inn, it hosts little in the ways of anything else. You will find no crowded tavern bar here, instead a small homey kitchen and cozy common room with an ancient but sturdy fireplace and hearth in the center. The decorations are ornate but dark like nighttime. Shining silver and gold colored adornments give a light sparkle to the place like the stars would brighten up the night sky. The rooms both upstairs and on the ground floor are as cozy as the common room that offer plenty of comfort, peace and quiet for everyone who stays here.

    Despite all the glamour and elegance, the innkeeper is a kindly man named Isaac who offers a fair price to anyone wanting a room for a night or a week.

    ---

    Leading the way to the inn, Tiketh was ever as cheerful and chatty as he had been the whole day thus far. "I think you'll like this place. They have great food and soft, warm beds. If it were possible to live here, I think I just might have to consider it. I know the innkeeper well enough and he knows me as well. We're pretty close really, almost friends." Well at least they knew each other and had seen one another more than enough times to be considered acquaintance and for Tiketh to be thought of as a "regular" around the place.

    Stepping inside, the innkeeper spotted him straight off and waved a greeting. "Benjamin!" he called, "Wonderful for you to come back! Long time no see. How have you been holding up?"

    "Uh.. about as well as I could be, Isaac,"
    he answered, "Look, we'll be needing a room or two for the night, a bath, and some meals?"

    "Pew! Just in time, too!"
    Isaac waved a hand, "You look filthy. Where've you been?"

    "...You could say I was digging in the desert,"
    he answered with a helpless laugh, "Look. A doctor should be coming by later as well. When he arrives, point him my way?"

    "Of course. Are you alright, Ben?"
    After telling the innkeeper not to worry, the man jerked a thumb down the main hall. "The baths are down at the end," he explained, "Help yourself and take your time."

    Excellent. That just made his day just then. Spirits heightened, Tiketh stretched his arm out as far as he could, "Should we hit the baths then? I'm dying to get cleaned up and not smell like death on a holiday."
     
  2. Wow.

    It has been a very long time since Keaton has been anywhere so glamorous, before coming here he would be sleeping in trees or in caves, so this was quite the luxury to him. He hadn't had his hopes up before, but now he's clearly happy. He stopped for a moment, just taking it all in. The warm fire, the dark decorations and how they brought out the lights, the golds and the silvers. Keaton almost felt light he didn't deserve it.

    Almost.

    The owner seemed nice and generous, which surprised Keaton. Most of the time, people who are rich enough to maintain this act like real snobs. He gave a small wave, surprisingly a bit shy compared to earlier today.

    A steam hot bath sounded like heaven right about now. He quickly nodded to the question, looking for a place to drop his weapons, shield, and other stuff.

    Starting off down the hall past a few rooms marked "Employee's Only" as well as the kitchen and what looked like a laundry dump, past numbered doors where the inn's patrons could stay, way down to the end of the hall, there was a solitary door of dark oak wood and colored glass window. Steam rolled out from under the door and even the doorknob was warm to the touch. The baths were just beyond here and it seemed like they were already heated up and ready. Someone else must already have been in there or still was currently.

    Still, the baths were private and big enough to accommodate many so it didn't matter to the Hylian if there was one person or half a dozen in there or wandering about waiting for a turn. With modesty, he wasn't about to strut around naked, but wasn't embarrassed enough to hate being seen by a few. Then again, he didn't need people gawking at him for plain to see reasons and pointing fingers or making comments. Shifting under his coat, he opened the door and stepped inside.

    There were plenty of benches and shelves for clothing, shoes, and other belongings, but Tiketh only shed his scythe and satchel. For now. He wasn't too uncomfortable or untrustworthy, but he was determined to take his time and relax. "Nice in here, isn't it?" he commented, taking in a big breath of some flowery scented air. Either someone had come through with perfume or there was potpourri (or something similar) around somewhere. Though he wouldn't have been surprised to see actual potted flowers in a window nearby.

    "I don't know if these are the best baths around Hyrule, but if there are better, I've yet to find one."
    He plopped onto a bench and let out a pleased sigh. If he stayed here too long, he might wind up falling asleep! "Feels great to finally be able to unwind after a long quest. I don't think I'm quite cut out for long and draining, daring adventures. I feel much more at peace here in Rauru, settling down, and spreading something other than bloodshed."
     
  4. The steam from the inside of the room hit Keaton like a wagon with (however many horses it takes to move as fast as a truck), but he certainty didn't mind. It didn't look like anyone else was inside, so Keaton chucked his stuff onto a bench and slipped off his shoes and shirt, wanting to get into the water as soon as possible. However, he stopped himself, a sudden wave of "don't take off your pants you idiot" going through his head, and decided to sit down on a bench.

    This is nice. Thought the boy. Smells nice too.

    Keaton pondered the following comments from his pal. Keaton practically lived for adventure, exploring new places, meeting new people, trying new foods, its the reason the goddesses gave us the earth, right? Keaton slipped through his pack, before taking out a small notepad, and writing a single sentence, the motto he lived by.

    "Life is a journey, not a destination"

    With that being said, there's nothing wrong with taking pit stops along the way.

    Keaton had only seen glimpses of the bad side of adventuring. The pain it can bring, the ways it can mess with someone, the people it can take away. Perhaps it would be better for the naive child to stay here, live a peaceful life.

    But it was far too late for Keaton to take that path.

    Seeing the boy shuffle around, Tiketh eyed him momentarily with a look of curiosity on his face. With a notepad, he wrote a phrase that made Tiketh happy as he peered over to read it. His life so far had certainly been a crazy journey already. He still had so much yet ahead of him, but the journey he'd been on up until this point hadn't exactly been at all fun. It was, at times, completely and horrifically miserable. It was probably time to explain more of himself and why he had been acting like a stick in the mud for road travels.

    Relinquishing his fancy new coat left his upper body exposed along with the nasty slashes and nicks from the battle at the prison. Very briefly did fingers brush across the wounds before he stopped and stood to fold up his coat and find a place for it on one of the shelves. "I so wish my life could have been full of exciting adventures that didn't immediately and constantly threaten my life. I ran into one danger too many once that stuck with me in a way I really.. really didn't want."

    He brought his hands up to ruffle through his hair, "I was exploring some old ruins. Uhh over near where the castle an the city used to be. Dangerous place and I should have been using my head. But I was feeling cocky and brave I guess... See I.. I heard a voice, someone calling to me. I thought someone needed help, so I went looking for them. I uh..." He frowned, arms across his chest as he slumped. He didn't like telling tales of his own stupidity, but he wasn't about to pretend he had all the answers and was never wrong. "I didn't find anyone.. in a living sense. Instead I found this spirit that attached itself to me and claimed it was going to steal my body someday when I could no longer hold back against it." He bowed his head and groaned. Damn Take. Damn demon whatever he was.

    "But.."
    he said, lifting his head back up, "When I left the desert, it disappeared. I'm hoping it's gone, but I can't help but feel he's still lurking, plotting something.. going to come back."

    Suddenly he laughed, "I have no idea why I'm telling you this. I never really told anyone before. Not the full story. I guess so you're aware. If I start acting strange, you'll have an idea of why..."
     
  6. ...Well. That's quite a story

    Keaton seemed surprised, but glad you told him. He wasn't too sure what Ben was talking about when he mentioned "where the castle an the city used to be." but took a wild guess and decided on it being near the desert. This whole "spirit" thing seemed to make Keaton conflicted. Would it ever happen to him? If he was in the same situation he would have done the exact same thing. But, sounds like it's gone now, so maybe both Keat and Ben were safe. A thought crossed Keaton's mind, "Was that Take" person the spirit?

    Keaton didn't consider himself cocky, but the word brave may describe him well. The very thought of a spirit taking control of people began to worry him. It stuck to him for a moment, but Keaton decided that if that were to happen, he would deal with it then and there.

    He looked over to the bath, and decided to clear away the sudden anxiousness he got by slipping in.

    With his pants.

    Keaton decided to think of it as some form of laundry. One more thought crossed through Keaton's mind before he decided to stop thinking and relax.

    What would I do if that spirit tried to attack me?

    But it drifted away along with the rest of Keaton's cares in the warm water.

    Pants or no pants, it did not matter. The water was warm and welcoming either way and Tiketh was ready to follow suit and get wet. Not quite int the mood to be fully nude, he simply just slid into the bath, lowering himself down down down until he was submerged all the way. About two seconds passed before he shot back up, teeth clenched in pain. "Nnngh...!" he hissed loudly, biting his tongue to keep from crying out. Hot soapy water touching the tender skin of his back sure hurt more than he ever imagined it would!

    "Ouch... sheesh..."
    A nervous laugh escaped his throat, shoulders quivering with that same laughter. Before too much concern could be brought up, he began jabbering on again. "I didn't expect it to hurt quite that much. You think I was too eager for a bath? Should I have gone to the surgeon first..?" He was hoping he didn't make a stupid error here with his order of events. No, it wouldn't have mattered much. The doctor hadn't even arrived yet anyway. Might as well kill time til he got here...

    "It's pretty refreshing, too, to not have a ghost hovering around and shouting into my head every few seconds. He was... very noisy and bossy... made me do awful things."
    He leaned back, sinking into the water much slower this time to give his body more time to adjust and get used to the feeling. It still stung, but it wasn't as sharp nor as sudden. "If he's gone, then I'm free. I survived. I honestly had already been worried I would one day lose and he'd come after me. I haven't had a full night's rest in... oh... ages really. Maybe tonight I'll finally get one. That'd sure be nice."
     
  8. At first, Keaton got very worried. Was that the spirit? Did the spirit do a thing? A panicked look spread across his face. He was about to jump out and grab his spear before realizing it was probably from the injuries. He sighed, before shaking his head at the question. Better to not have your wounds caked in sand and dirt and all sorts of other junk.

    Keaton's mind wandered back towards the spirit again. Where did it come from? Where did it go? He imagined himself in the situation, and he believed he would be able to keep it under control. He was slow to anger, and usually able to keep calm and collected when his weapons are on his back and his spirits are high. But either way, his mind was his alone. Not having a voice to speak with causes you to be patient, too, so the constant ramblings probably wouldn't do much either. Either way, Keaton couldn't exactly imagine what it'd be like. Keaton sighed, deciding it wouldn't be a good thing.

    Though his partner was silent and couldn't speak about himself, Tiketh was having a good time, enjoying that he could just unwind and let spill. His eyes half shut now, he was more relaxed than ever, glad for someone he could talk to who was at the very least a good listener. "I'm glad I could tell someone about all this that's wrong with me. I don't actually have a lot of friends and, say if Take did manage to fight against me and win, who would know about it? Who would miss me? Anyone who didn't know me as I am now would only remember me as.... well... him." He didn't like the idea of being known only as a rotten monster.

    "But you know,"
    He took a mouthful of water and spat it back out in a delightful fountain show. Scrubbing fingers into his messy mop of hair, he attempted being more upbeat and less of a depressing sack. "I keep telling you about me. I'd like to know more about yourself as well." Oh but how to go about it if the kid couldn't speak.

    He could ask questions, keeping them simple for a 'yes' or 'no' sort of answer only. That might work. Tapping his chin, he thought of a question or two to ask. "So how about you? Do you have a family anywhere? I'm pretty much alone in this world now. My parents were both killed and my sister.. though I never saw any body, I can't imagine how she could have survived. Do you live anywhere near here? Or farther away maybe? I heard there are some people crazy enough to make their home in the swamp. Sounds pretty dingy and gross to me."
     
  10. Keaton held his finger up for a moment, slipping out of the water, drying his hands, grabbing his notepad and pencil, and stepping back into the water, making sure not to drop the notepad. It wasn't exactly waterproof, as you could guess.

    His mother died of an unknown illness and his father was somewhere out there, but some things happened between the two, things that Keaton would rather not talk about yet. He probably had other family besides his parents, but he never met them so he wrote down "My parents are dead." dead to him, anyway. He quickly added "My cat, dibs, is probably still alive, but she ran away". Keaton briefly wondered how Ben's parents died. Something in him thought, however, that there was a slight chance his sister is still out there. Maybe...

    "I don't live anywhere, I usually just set up a small camp, hole up in an inn, or sleep in some abandoned buildings" Keaton did have to sleep in a swamp once, it was not a fun time.

    Keaton couldn't exactly think of any questions to ask Ben, so he waited for the next set.

    Waiting patiently, still as a statue, Tiketh watched the boy fetch his notepad to communicate. A part of him hoped this one had a better life than Tiketh had, but another part suspected there to be a reason he was out here all alone. Hearing the news that his parents were dead was disheartening. So they were the same in that aspect at least. "I'm truly sorry to hear that," he responded, "I've been without a family for long enough that I've gotten used to it... but I'll be honest in saying I never quite got over missing the company. It sure is great to have somewhere to return to every night and to always have someone there to welcome you home." In Tiketh's time alone, he just sort of stopped trying to care and stopped voicing his dismay aloud. He even learned to stop thinking about it and to instead put his mind elsewhere and the memories faded away.

    "I remember they were kind people,"
    he said, however, "They certainly didn't deserve the fate that befell them at least... But nothing I ca n do to change it, right? No more than I could undo my encounter with the spirit Take. He called himself that because he-" he made air quotes with his fingers to elaborate the point "-was the one who 'takes away' everything. Whatever his name had been when he was alive, he never told me."

    "Hmph..."
    He grumbled for a moment, fighting with a thought in his head. Take had never told him much of anything, except that little slip of a note that he had killed his father and sister at some point. Leaving it be, he went back to questioning. He didn't want to spend this time talking about some past ghost instead of someone he actually liked more.

    "So what do you like to do?"
    he asked curiously, "Like for fun I mean. Me, I personally love playing my music and doing tricks. Have I mentioned I was an acrobat?" He honestly couldn't remember. "You know like a... street performer. I know a lot of tricks. I've had... a little experience with juggling, but it's mostly balancing or dancing. I learned a lot of stunts over the years I guess, well.. because jumping from place to place and entertaining for money has been my whole life.."
     
  12. ...What do I like. Tough question, actually. His mind had been on adventures and journeys for such a long time, he never noticed any other hobbies of his. He wrote down "Adventuring, helping people" and then pondered some more about his hobbys. "Hiking, Whistling" Hiking kinda mixed with adventuring, but sometimes you would see some cool stuff while on a trail, like that one bear cave he found (and avoided). Whistling was the only thing Keaton could do to make noise come out of his mouth (besides breathing), so he cherished that as a gift. He did enjoy one other hobby, but wasn't exactly sure what it was called. "Climbing, Roof hopping?" He wrote down, hoping that would get the point across. He had memories of climbing some massive structures before, sometimes a requirement for ruins he explored, but just climbing up the bricks of a building and looking at the view below him made him happy. He was, in a way, taller than everyone else. Jumping across from roof to roof was exciting to him, the feeling you get in the middle of each jump and the question of "will you make it?" that shoots through your brain each time excited him. The last hobby he could think of was "Shield Surfing"

    Keaton wrote down a question of his own: "Who do you know in Rauru?". Learning about some of the locals might be a smart idea.

    Thinking about Keaton's hobbies, Tiketh nodded along at each written word. It sure did sound like a lot of fun. The last time Tiketh had been able to just go out and have fun like that was.. oh.. never really. Since a young age he started his skills and started playing for people. Hitting the road, it became more business than pleasure, though he never once stopped enjoying it for even a second. He was ever learning new tricks and acts he could perform and would dazzle the pants off anyone once he perfected them.

    "You've almost given me a yearning to go out and try to find some rare and interesting adventure,"
    he said through a laugh. One sour trip didn't have to mean the entire world had gone wrong and he should hide under his bed for a decade, right? "Maybe I could give it another go sometime and see what else is out there... Well, after I heal fully. Or at least until I feel better. I just feel so lousy today. The water helps a ton though. And I'm sure hoping the doctor helps even more. If he gives me the okay, I'll know I'll survive and I can find.. I don't know..." Friends? Family? Romance? ...Death? He didn't know what exactly was out in that world for him, but could he really remain a coward forever and hide here? Or did he have to go out and see for himself? Man up, as they say.

    "But it's not so bad here if I'm stuck for a while. I know a few people.."
    He waved a hand towards the notepad, finally getting around to answering that, "Mostly it's people like the innkeeper here or other performers or travelers. I try my very best to avoid the... religious side of Rauru honestly. Most of those folk are too uptight for me. I know a few mercenaries that like to hire themselves out as bodyguards for caravans on the roads. I actually joined a couple of them at one time. I'm not the best fighter and it's pretty tough work, but boy do they pay extremely well. You know!" He raised a finger, "There is one that I could consider almost a friend. She was with the Order and though we only met once, and briefly might I add, she was great. What was her name...? Ah! Zimo. A Zora she was." She probably didn't remember him though. Heck, he hardly remembered her on that note.
     
  14. Keaton seemed pleased, knowing that you weren't gonna hang in the towel just yet...except for after this bath, of course. Keaton was certain that Ben would heal up as quickly as possible, as soon as that doctor decides to show up. He wrote down on the notepad "You'll find friends, I found you, didn't I?".

    Mercenaries? Keaton was pretty sure his father was a mercenary. Hopefully they hadn't crossed paths before. Chances are that his father quit, he said he didn't like the job too much.

    Zora the Zimo- I mean Zimo the Zora. He hadn't gotten to meet many Zora's on his journey, as most of his travels went along forests and ruins. He did remember one merchant Zora, who said they were really into fish. Which was...odd, to say the least. But he rolled with it.

    Wonder when that doctor is gonna show up

    "Yeah," he answered, "Yeah! You're right. And thank the goddesses for you finding me. I can't say what would have wound up happening if I passed out and got stuck outside in the fields for the night. When the sun goes down, that land is riddled with Stals of all shapes and sizes. In my condition, I might be able to handle one or two, but... there are dozens... hundred even if you're in the wrong place and the wrong time." A shiver ran down his spine just imagining how bad off he'd have been if he woke up in the dead of night out there with the creatures advancing on him. He was very confident he would not be sitting in this inn or really any inn ever again. That was a fact. He was damn lucky Keaton had come across him. He made a mental note never to forget that.

    "And you're a good friend already,"
    he confirmed, "I talk and you listen." And he didn't judge him. At least he hoped he didn't. He really still did feel he owed the boy more for helping get him safe in Rauru while the sun was still high in the sky and highwaymen or other fiends hadn't found him zonked out on the road and ready to be robbed. "I'm very glad for your company right now when I've been pretty desperate for a friend to talk to." Being either alone or with strangers with whom he couldn't trust might have made him a little tiny bit crazy, or at least teetering on the edge.

    "Of course, I like to believe you can never have enough friends. Never too many."
    And he was sorely lacking in that department. He sat up more, stifling a wince. What he did have enough of right now though was a soaking. "Sure be nice.." he started, sliding out of the bath, "...if I knew well enough..." he slugged himself over to a shelf to grab a towel "...a doctor who could give me a discount. But I don't know anyone with that kind of talent who knows me by name. This visit is probably going to suck up most of what I have left. These sorts of things are usually damn pricey."
     
  16. Beet smiled. He hasn't made a lot of friends simply because he wasn't able to keep the ones he found, they would cross paths, exchange a few kind words, trade and barter, maybe eat a meal together, and be on their way. Keaton was hoping that Ben would be different, but chances are that they'll eventually be seperated, or something like that. But Keaton decided to live in the present, and the present had him being complemented, so it was nice.

    Beet slipped out of the bath, smelling mostly like flowers, soap, and happiness. Shoving a towel onto his hair and rustling it around into its messy, yet simple look that it's always had. Some kind of lost art where it never seems to change, ever, no matter how many times it gets put through the wringer. Keaton slipped on his t-shirt and scarf, slipped his stuff onto his back, and...had no idea which room was theirs.

    Hm.

    Dripping wet, Tiketh gave his head a shake like a dog would do to rid its fur of excess water. Patting himself down with the towel, he got as dry as possible before he fetched a shirt from his satchel and redressed back into his fancy new coat. The hot bath water did a miracle on his body, soothing every muscle and ache. He almost didn't hurt at all anymore. What was probably an 8/10 on the pain scale had now dulled itself way down to a 2 or maybe even a 1.

    Not only that he felt much better, but he also looked a grand deal nicer. With the right outfit and hairstyle and fancy air about him, he could almost pass for a wealthy noble with deep pockets and a manor up on a hill somewhere. "My family used to own a manor," he said suddenly, "When they were alive I mean. Before the war ravaged everything, the Tiketh family was fairly wealthy, so I'm told. I never got to see much of their estate or their legacy, though. I mean all throughout the war, nearly everything was lost. But my parents and my sister and I... we lived once in a grand home up on a hill. After they were killed, I had to run. I never went back. I don't know if the house is still standing. It might be."

    "I'd like to go back sometime and see what's left of it."
    He smirked, "But the doctor first. We should probably head to our room and see if he's there yet. I'd hate to keep him waiting too long when it was me that insisted he come here to me in the first place." He dug in his pocket, fishing out the key. "Room uhhhh 34. I think that's upstairs. Let's go find it."
     
  18. A manor, huh? What are the chances that the place isn't broken down somewhere. Sounds like a place to seek out eventually, so Keaton added it to his ever expanding backlog of places to go. Besides, confronting your past is often good for you. Even if you just find rubble, its one mystery solved and one less thing to worry about. The question is which to go to first, Katsuro or his place? Keaton decided to choose some other time.

    Keaton had high hopes for the room they were in, judging on the main lobby and how nice it was. Keaton found it odd that they were given room number 34. Something about just kinda put him off, but he snapped out of it. Nothing to worry about, its just a room number. Keaton, filled with anticipation, speed walked up the stairs, to the door, and tried to open it.

    Oh, yeah. I don't have the key. Way to go, Keat.

    Tiketh followed right behind, his stead much more stable and quick with his physical condition faring so much better. Hurrying up to his room, key in hand, he unlocked the door and made a move to step inside, pausing only once to glance around for the doctor. The door was locked and the the hall was empty. The surgeon must not have arrived yet, he figured. He'd probably be along shortly then if he was not here already.

    The room was dark, but that was easily remedied once he lit up various lanterns around the walls and ceiling. Once it was bright enough to see, one could tell the room was decorated much the same as the front desk and common room. The walls were dark with ornate gold painted patterns and decorations all over. Most of the designs were pointed pictures that resembled stars. It was beautiful and calming and reminded him of days where he could sit outside on a balcony and stare up at the stars without having to worry about Stalfos running amok and trying to cleave flesh clean off his bones.

    Just as soon as he'd gotten settled, there was a soft knock at the door. Opening it, the doctor was standing out in the hallway. At least he looked doctor-like. He was wearing a long, plain coat of a light gray color and had with him a medical bag. "I was told to come to this room, that there was someone who needed my services?"

    "Yes please,"
    Tiketh said, relieved at his appearance. "I was just hoping you could take a look at some gashes I got a few days ago... to make sure they'll... they'll heal okay and aren't infected." He looked to Keaton, offering a sympathetic look, "If this makes you uncomfortable at all, I wouldn't make you sit around and be forced to watch." He had no idea how awful it would be or how squeamish the boy would get.
     
  20. Well, this room is beautiful. Keaton simply stared wide eyed at the sheer amount of detail put into every little thing in the room. He put his hand on one of the beds, and almost immediately sunk into it. The bed was clearly the softest thing Keaton had laid on in a very long time. Keaton just lied down on the bed, staring at the "stars" around the room. It didn't beat the real deal, but it sure was a close second.

    Well, that is the most stereotypical doctor I've ever seen.

    Keaton decided that he'd like to explore the town a bit, and see what it had to offer. He gave a small wave to his partner and walked out the door. Besides, sitting around in a room while another person gets a bunch of wounds checked out didn't exactly excite Keat, and if he was in the same situation he would rather it be private.
