"I honestly feel like I lost a lot of brain cells during my brief time on the Force." June grumbled, "You know the thing about guard duty... It's incredibly boring..."

"Oh I know that," Evelyn replied. "Had a few escort jobs. The ones that didn't have anything happen were very boring."

June shifted her mouth side-to-side a moment, then stood up.

"Why don't we go now? I need to get out and do something."

"I'll get my gear," Evelyn said.

Before they knew it, the two ladies were descending the staircase to the ground floor of the bar, all decked-out and badass with their armor and weapons. But as they reached the middle level, an absent-minded teenage boy in a blue peasant tunic, who definitely wasn't looking where he was going, bumped into Evelyn and sent all three of them crashing down the stairs the rest of the way.

"Evy... you're... so... heavy..." June gasped from the bottom of the pile-up at the foot of the stairs.

Evelyn just groaned in response.

"Oh, oh, I'm so sorry..." Karl offered a hand to help the top person (Evelyn) up, "Please forgive me si-- m... ma'am?"

The peasant boy looked completely thrown for a loop when he saw Evy's face and realized she was a woman. Also that June was a woman too.

"Wait, there's... lady warriors...?" he looked really confused.

Evelyn accepted the offer.
"Yea... there are," she replied. "Something wrong?"

"I've just, never seen female warriors before." Karl replied.

He then randomly turned to his left and spoke to... the wall?

"What? No! Just shush for a moment, I got this."

He then looked back at Evelyn.

"Sorry, my sister was bugging me about something."

"I'm... okay..." June wheezed from the floor.

Evelyn raised an eyebrow at the apparent one sided conversation before helping June up off the ground.

"Well... we exist," she replied. "Hell... I heard stories about some tribe somewhere where all their warriors are women."

"Really? Weird... Huh, the world is full of surprises." Karl smiled in fascination at this revelation.

"..."

"Oh, right! Sorry! Karl Saxon's my name, nice to meet you both!" he added after a moment of awkward hesitation.

"Evelyn Kyrielight," she replied. "I'm an adventurer."

"June Hagan, and I do the same thing she does. Or I will be doing... or I used to, and will be doing it again... I mean, just forget it..." June sighed.

"Wow! So what sort of adventures do you two go on?" Karl wondered.

"Whatever the local guard feels they can't, or don't want to, do. And usually get decent pay for it."

"You get paid!" A voice suddenly said from right below June, where Ada had out of nowhere appeared scrubbing the floors with a brush and bucket.

"GEEYAAH!" June yelped, jumping in surprise, then stumbling to try not to step on Ada, but accidentally stepping in the bucket instead.

"Oh, good morning Ada." Karl waved at the girl on the floor.

"Good and morning do not belong in the same sentence today..." June groaned.

"Uh..." Karl's face turned red.

"I'm nobody's girlfriend, sister." June glared at the teenager on the floor.

"Speaking of which, I'm starving." June remarked.

"You don't suppose this place serves breakfast, do you?" Karl wondered.

"AAAAADDDAAAAA!!" the innkeeper suddenly bellowed.

Uh-oh... he must have just realized that Im not Felix! Ada said as she scrambled to her feet. Hes a hard one to keep fooled!

She then began sneaking back into the main room, hiding behind her bucket.

"It does... and in my experience that innkeeper is not one you want to anger," Evelyn said. "Heard a story about busting through a wall once..."

"It's too early to be drinking your soul away, Vance," Nora chided her adopted father from the other side of the room, oblivious to everything going on around her.

"But I gottsa drink to get a pain in my belly so I can get rid of thish pain in my TOE!" Vance counter-scolded, ordering a third one.

"That's not how drinking works..."
