Well she's quick, Celeste admitted to herself. And while it would not have been her preferred method, she could see that it was effective just as well. Far riskier, for sure, but then again, men like them were all bark and no bite, only preying on the weak.

Anyway, they would be okay. She had her own problems to worry about, after all. She scanned the port, further considering her choices, when someone else arrived at the scene.

Now that was much better. She was not quite popular with girls, but he would do. The typical knight in shining armor - can't quite leave a damsel in distress unprotected? That was something she could work with. Now the question is, did he just arrive or is he leaving?

All she needed was to get out of this planet as soon as possibly. And maybe sooner than that.

Oh good, they were all talk and no bite. Chares watched the thugs retreat while they could, and then turned his attention back to the girl in robes. No wonder they had jumped her when they had the chance, she looked richer than most people at the port. Was she some lost noble? Shouldn't she have a guard or two?

"Hey, you alright? You have any parents around here?" he asked, bringing himself closer to her eye level. His voice was strangely soft compared to how it was just moments ago. He didn't say anything to Frey yet, deciding to tell her off for almost getting into a fight again after he checked on this girl.

Military enforcement?

Frey’s heart skipped a beat in panic, but her face betrayed nothing. She couldn’t show her fear to these people or she and this girl would be done for. They couldn’t possibly know her face, right? Had the Mercurian government already alerted the other planets and spread out wanted information about her? Then again… probably not. They’d want to handle this matter discreetly. There was no way they would willingly let everyone know that they’d screwed up, especially as big as letting an important fugitive escape from their planet.

Before she could try to think of what to do next, something else completely unexpected happened. Chares was suddenly already beside her, helping her. She frowned at him in confusion. What was wrong with this guy? Why would he keep doing these dangerous things for her, especially now that he knew she was fugitive? (Was he not quite right in the head or something?)

Still, with his size, even weaponless, he was way more threatening than she was, wielding a knife. As the two guys slowly backed away, Frey put down the knife and sheathed it back, looking at the girl they’d rescued curiously. Chares was doing what she now dubbed his thing again, where he apparently just rescued every random person, no matter how dangerous it was or who they were. Was this what he did in his spare time? Collecting trouble?

She decided to stay out of the questioning, since she’d probably have to leave him—and them if he decided to take the girl on his ship too—soon anyway. Heck, he’d probably want her gone now…

Frey looked around the bustling city, realizing how completely unfamiliar it looked, and wondered just what the hell she was supposed to do next or where she was supposed to go.

She bristled slightly at the tone and the question, puffing her cheeks and narrowing her eyes slightly in an expression that she thought would be intimidating. It was not intimidating in the slightest; it was actually rather adorable. She crossed her arms over her chest, her hands disappearing into the long layered sleeves, and tossed her head. The ornaments in her hair jingled as she did so. How could he address her in such a manner? Did he not know who she was? She was an apprentice priestess of the famous Huo Re Temple!

"Sir, thank you for your assistance with those hooligans," she replied in her most haughty voice. (It was slightly squeaky compared to her normal speaking voice, although she did not know that. She thought it sounded "mature" and "persuading".)

"I do not have parental supervision. I am Xihe, priestess-in-training for the Huo Re Temple. The spirits have sent me on a journey that requires that I leave Mars. I am here to seek a transport vessel."

The dark-haired girl conveniently left out that she had no idea what she was doing, had never been on her own before, and didn't understand a single element of engaging in commerce.

Chares almost snorted at the little girl's display of maturity. Did they just let kids wander around unguarded these days? Priestess-in-training or not, this was dangerous, especially since she seemed to have no idea how to blend in. He had no idea how all this holy temple stuff worked anyway, they just had statues and burned offerings on Jupiter mostly.

"Well, my apologies for assuming, Miss Priestess." She was really going on some spirit journey off planet? She wouldn't make it to a ship at this rate. "Would you be offended if I offered to escort you to the docks?" He was going to regret this very soon, he thought. But he was in trouble anyway, so he might as well do the right thing.

Well, she wasn't angry enough to turn down an offer of help. After all, he and the white-haired woman had already assisted her so much. Perhaps in some other place, she would have owed them a debt. As a devotee of the temple, however, she was not accustomed to owing anything to others. All things flowed in her way, with gifts and offerings simply because of her powers. She didn't quite realize that these strangers did not understand the systems and customs of Mars.

Xihe's posture altered slightly, returning to experienced poise from that stiff with insult. The red eyes glanced at the very tall man, not even wondering if he might have motives or plans as threatening as those of the two men that had tried to change her course. The single experience was not enough to alter her outlook. Her way of life was too ingrained within her.

"I accept and appreciate your offer," she replied, the tone of voice softened somewhat. "I expected a somewhat different reception here."

So the mummy girl is a priestess of some sort? That could be good. She would probably be respected around these parts. Well, not by thugs like those two, obviously, but definitely by those that matter. Possibly the authorities. And apparently, she was "seeking a transport vessel" too. That makes two of us, sister, she thought to herself.

And of course, the guy basically volunteered to be her bodyguard for the time being. He seemed to be very kind. Unfortunate for him, really - such a flaw could prove to be fatal in the long-run. But, well, that was none of her business.

In any case, it seemed to be a good idea to stay close to those people for now. Perhaps she'd find a way to escape together with that priestess girl. Or at least borrow a couple of those layers of clothing she was buried under. That would make for the perfect disguise.

Okay then. It was time to set her plan in motion. She took a deep breath, and began running frantically straight towards the tall young man, looking behind her the whole time as if she were chased, and braced herself for the inevitable impact.

"AHHH!" she screamed as she bumped into him full-speed, causing her to fall backwards. "Owww... I-- I'm so sorry! I-- wait... y-- you're not one of them, are you?" she asked, panic evident in her face and voice.

Fake panic, of course, but she was certain she could play the part just fine.

Chares stood up at his full height when Xihe agreed to come with him. "I dunno what goes on up in those temples, but this city's always been a mess." Aries may look organized on the surface, but half the guards were paid off to look the other way, and the other half could care less about safety if it didn't reflect poorly on their master's reputation. 

He barely moved when something bumped into his back, and he turned around to find a young blonde woman with frantic blue eyes. Just what was going on around here today? "One of what?" he asked. Were there other Jovians around here? They wouldn't dare bring their armed forces directly to Mars just to look for him... right? "You hit me pretty hard. You didn't hurt something, did you?" If he wasn't distracted by his own situation, he would have registered that this girl looked like she was from Venus.

Xihe didn't know how to interpret his comment. Was he being dismissive of the sacred temples? Just the thought of the possibility of such a thing put her back on the defensive, descending gently into a sulk. The temples were bastions of knowledge and wisdom, with priestesses and elders to heed the spirits and direct the great battles. This was so very central of Xihe's way of life that she couldn't imagine someone else—even a foreigner, although she was not yet certain of anything about this tall person—to be ignorant of it. Her experiences and all she knew represented only a very tiny world, but so far it still seemed grand and all-encompassing to the teenager.

And then the blonde woman arrived, shaking with fear. Immediately, Xihe wondered if it was the two men from before. She ducked a little bit closer to the tall man, eyes glancing around and looking for danger.

"Hmm... No, you do not look like them at all. You're not from around here, are you?" she asked innocently.

She got herself up and quickly glanced to her left and to her right. "Space pirates! My father is a treasure hunter - he caught wind of a map with supposedly the location of a rare artifact, and those pesky pirates want to steal it from him. They know they'll never outwit him fair and square, so they figured if they abducted me, he would be forced to choose between the map and his daughter."

"And that would be closer to a tie than you would think..." she mumbled. "I need to get out of here, and fast. You wouldn't happen to have a friend or something who will be taking off soon? I-- I can pay, too," she added hesitantly.

She did have a little currency left, and anyway, she'd get it all back if things went her way as usual.

"Space pirates, huh?" It was kind of a weird story that sounded more like something you'd find in a book, but Chares didn't have much of a reason to doubt her beyond paranoia. And he did have an idea as to how he could get her off Mars. He just needed a new ship.

"Uh, don't worry about pay, I can help you. If I give you a place to hide, can you wait a few more hours?" He had an apartment in Aries that he used on the rare days off, an no one would look for anyone in there. And he could wait until the crowd died down before he took this Priestess child to the docks.

She listened to the conversation around her, only half paying attention as she considered what to do next. The weird girl was a priestess. The spirits sent her? Frey suppressed a smirk. Mercurians definitely didn’t believe in foolish things like spirits and anything they could not see with their own eyes. And where, pray tell, would this woman have to go to get her spiritual journey? It sounded like she was just going to get herself in a lot of trouble.

Her naivety shone through, and Frey almost felt sorry for her. To expect to be treated nicely just because of… whatever it was she assumed, especially in a planet like Mars… well, that was just silly, wasn’t it? Had she lived and grown up in a bubble all this time? Did she not know what chaos was happening out there?

The girl was not going to last five minutes on her own. Maybe not even five seconds.

Then a flash of gold streaked by, and bumped straight into Chares. Frey looked at the figure that now ended up in his arms. Another damsel in distress? What was Chares; some kind of magnet for girls in trouble? And—Frey wrinkled her nose distastefully—this was clearly a Venusian. She hoped Chares knew better than to fall for their manipulative charms…

Space pirates? Treasure hunters? Abduction?? She’s got to be kidding.

Frey raised an eyebrow and glared at the girl, before looking at Chares to see if he was buying this.

She could not believe her ears when he actually offered to help.

“Whoa, wait a second,” she interrupted. “We don’t even know her. For all we know, she’s probably just trying to get a free ride.” She realized how hypocritical it sounded, so she quickly amended, “I mean, and who knows what else she might be planning! You can’t trust Venusians, you know.”

She turned toward the girl suspiciously. “So you’re saying you were abducted and brought here? Why didn’t you go to the authorities instead of trying to hitch a ride with a stranger? How do you know we’re not pirates, or something worse? What kind of person who has just been abducted would offer herself up to be taken away by yet another stranger? And you told us about your father and his precious treasure, which means we could use you as leverage, same way those pirates do. Why would you even do that?”

She’d always known Venusians weren’t too bright, despite their shining appearance.

She listened quietly as the pale-haired woman spoke, immediately refuting the claims from the blonde. That story itself was still buzzing in Xihe's mind. Space pirates and a treasure map... It sounded both fantastic and strikingly different from the ancient legends that formed the backbone of her education. Her dark crimson eyes surveyed the group, unsure of what to trust. Without sacred flame, she could not question this young woman's motive with any certainty of an answer. When she returned to the temple, she could investigate...

The trinkets in her hair tinkled softly as she winced slightly, quickly recovering. "When she returned." She would do no such thing. They had cast her out, after all. Where would she even find sacred flame on some heathen other world? They did not hold respect for the ways of Mars; that she knew from talk of the war, despite her ignorance of so many customs and cultural elements.

Other people stood around her, but she felt the narrowing light of isolation focus on her once more. Her body stiffed as a brief vision took hold, but this one had nothing new to show her. The pressure and warmth of another hand on hers releasing, with no joy to be found in the sudden freedom. The faint shadow, details blurred and lost with so many recollections of this event, walking away. Never looking back. Not even once, not even a slight movement as though she was going to. She just kept going.

Xihe gasped, sucking in a ragged breath, once again feeling oppressively warm in her elaborate outfit. She huddled closer into it, as though the familiar cloth could somehow protect her, feeling the sweat bead on her forehead. Xihe slid a white handkerchief out of her sleeve and blotted it against her face, avoiding the ritual makeup. She glanced away, hoping to effect a look of boredom as this conversation continued, rather than betray her tumultuous emotions.
