     The older leprechaun rolled his eyes.

     "We aren't here to drink, Ooqi." the commander said sternly.

     "We'd look pretty suspicious if we didn't." Ooqi responded, "So why don't we just enjoy ourselves for once?"

     "We're not here to enjoy ourselves, we're here to recruit!"

     "But we could have fun doing it!"

"You're recruiting!?" Summer exclaimed with excitement in her eyes, "Yay! We're looking for a job."

"So, we should sit down and discuss it over a drink rather than stand around like bloody idiots." Al suggested.

     "I think that's a good idea." The older leprechaun agreed.

     "Ugh!" the commander sighed.

Meanwhile in town, an angry market manager with a broom was chasing a crow and a pigeon out of his market and through the town.

"Fly for your life!" the pigeon panicked as they were flying.

"I told you not to scream when we're getting food!" the crow yelled.

"It wasn't my fault, a worm came out of an apple after I looked at it."

They flew all through the town until they ended up at the mercenary guild. They then landed on the unicorn to rest.

The unicorn didn't seem to notice the two birds, since they had landed on the metal armor that was covering its head. The unicorn was still looking at Naeleen, instead.

Then all of a sudden, the market manager appeared, spotted the two birds, and then charged at them.

"I have you now you bird brains!" screamed the manager while running towards the birds with the broom over his head.

The unicorn heard the racket and turned its whole body to face the charging manager. Its eyes blazed even brighter and it let out a rumbling growl that sounded like a small dragon or lion.

The manager stopped with his eyes wide open.

"Uh oh!" he said in a weak voice.

"What's going on?" asked the pigeon.

"I think we're moving." answered the crow looking down at his talons.

The unicorn suddenly bucked in the air and broke the flimsy rope that was holding it to the fence. With a brief roar, it charged at the manager.

The manager turned around and ran back to town.

"AAAAHHHH!" he screamed, "May day! May day! May day!"

"Where are you going?" Naeleen cried when she saw the unicorn run off, "Come back! Come back!"

She fell to her knees and broke into tears.

The unicorn pursued the manager until they were about a hundred yards away from the mercenary hall. Once it got that far, it stopped and huffed at the man, then turned around to walk back to the hall.

"You blasted birds have outwitted me again." the manager growled, "Fifteen times! But if you two come to my market again, I'll turn both of you into pillows!"

Then he walk back to his market.

"Phew! That was a close call." said the pigeon in relief.

"I hate it when he chases us, especially with a broom." said the crow with a frown as they rode along on the unicorn.

The unicorn stopped, thinking it heard voices above it. It looked up to the sky, but saw nothing, then continued back to the mercenary hall, stopping in front of the tether fence where it had been tied up previously.

The birds got up after catching their breath.

"Hey Mr. Unicorn," said the pigeon to the unicorn, "thanks for saving us from that manager."

The unicorn just glared at them, then huffed indifferently.

"What's the matter unicorn?" the pigeon asked, "Are you having a bad day?"

"What are you doing you dummy?!?" the crow asked in whisper, "Lets get going."

"Why? He saved us from that manager."

"I said, LETS GET GOING!" the crow yelled and pushed him to the ground.

Naeleen stopped crying and looked up at the birds.

"Are you guys fighting?"

Naeleen looked around the nearly empty street.

"Uh-huh."

"We're not fighting." said the pigeon, "He was born to be mean."

"Hey!" the crow snapped, "I'm not mean. You're not paying attention to me when we have to go."

"Well I have to thank the unicorn who saved us from that crazy manager."

"Where are you going?" Naeleen asked. There was touch of sadness in her voice.

"Well...uh...err...umm...just going." the crow answered quickly, "Lets go."

"We can't go if we don't know where we're going." said the pigeon, "Do you have any idea where we will go?"

There was silence for a few seconds.

"We can go back to the market and try to be extra quiet to get food." answered the crow.

"You've told me that fifteen times, and it never worked!"

"Well that was your..."

"You are fighting! I knew it" Naeleen interrupted gleefully, "I love fights! Please, continue."
