Aventh thought for a second, but couldn't think of anything
"No I don't think I would know of any places, I'm not from around here, but maybe the kids do?"
Angie, Howie and Parker shook there heads
"No, we don't sorry" Howie said
"hmmmmm" Aventh thought for a bit more "tell you what, why don't you travel with me for a while? I have a steady income of gold, I can probably supply you with a place to sleep, and food wont be much of a problem, as work, you can help me out with my research and also help me watch after my students" Aventh said motioning to Angie, Howie, and Parker.

The boy widened his eyes. Though he didn't know Aventh yet, he felt like it could be an opportunity for him. Besides travelling by himself, though a rewarding experience, was lonely. But... He was also a little afraid. He stood there in silence for a while, thinking.
"Well?", Aventh asked.
He made a decision. This time, he wasn't going to shy away.
"Hum.... Is it really ok?"
He nodded.
"What's your name?", Aventh asked.
"Oh... I'm Seis.... Seis Aozora."
"Well, then it's settled.", Aventh said. "My name is Aventh. And those three are Angie, Howie and Parker."

Haruki watched the proceedings with interest, and when this decision had been finalised, he spoke.

'If you need money, I know a place that needs an all round boy. Messenger, mainly though. Are you interested?' He looked at the small boy, smiling slightly.

"Hum...", he thought of Haruki's proposal. It seemed like he could get a job. But he had already agreed to Aventh's offer, whose he was interested in. But, in that case, maybe he could juggle the two of them.
"Hum..." He looked at Aventh "Thank you a lot for your offer. It makes me really happy, and I'm glad but.... I can't take the whole of it....", Aventh seemed a little surprised, "It's not like I dislike your terms but... it does feel like I'd be a freeloader you see... But... I want to travel and help you!", he spoke to both Aventh and Haruki now, "I'll accept your advice and work as a all round boy mister. But," he spoke to Aventh again "Please let me help you as well. For as long as you and I stay in this city, let me help in any way possible, because I don't... I don't really feel like being alone at the moment..." He was somewhat embarassed when he finished speaking, "Is it... ok?", he asked in a sheepish tone to Aventh and Haruki.

Parker glared at him, "We dont need him sensei." He whispered as he nudged Aventh.
"Hi Im Angie." Angie said to Seis with a huge grin, "Are you hungry? You Look hungry!" She reached for her plate and gave it to him, "You can have this. " She handed it to him despite his protests.

Haruki nodded, then looked at Angie. Then his head turned to Seis, who was awkwardly holding ther plate Angie had given him.

'I think she means for you to eat it. If you didn't, it would be a waste, would it not?' Seis looked confused, then nodded.

"Hum.... Thank you" he mumbled in a low tone of voice, almost imperceptible, and started to eat. He had a voracious apetite and devoured the food on the plate in a whim.
"Hmm... This was good!", he said in a cheery voice.
Angie beamed at him.
"It was good wasn't it?"
"Yes!"
She smiled.
"Do you feel better?", Haruki asked.
"Yes, thank you a lot."
Parker nugded Aventh once again.
"Sensei, are you sure? He seems barely able to tie his own shoes! And what do you mean by taking care of us? He even looks younger than us!"
Aventh sighed.
"Hopefully he will do a good job", that's all he said.
Parked turned to Howie who stared at the fireworks.
"Don't tell me you agree with this?"
"Huh?" He seemed slightly dazed, then smiled "Is something the matter Parker?"
".... Forget it"

By the time the fireworks ended, it was late in the night. "I'll take you all home." Aventh said to the kids who all nodded and Parker glared at the new guy daring him to try and come with them. He didnt and just bowed politely.
Aventh said to him, "Why dont you meet us in the main city when youre done with work tomorow...lets say...where should we meet him, guys?"
"Wilderly Park." Angie chirped, it was a huge Zoo in Mytlon.
"Sandy haven?" Howie suggested. It was a picnic site near the beach.
Parker folded his arms and scowled. His head barely reaching the other's boy's chest but his glare was ferocious. "I say, NO WHERE." He said.
"Whereever is more convenient for you." The boy said politely and Haruki said, "I think where he's going to be working, the Zoo is the easier place to reach."
"YAY." Angie said happily. "Its so awesome sensei. They have so many animals..." Her excited voice faded as she led Aventh away.
"Tomorow then!" Aventh called back just before the group disappeared out of sight.

HAruki looked down at the small boy.

'Well, then. Let's find you a place to stay. Would you say no to staying in a room at my house tonight, and then I'll take you to Resim tomorrow?' Seis shook his head, and followed Haruki to the canal. Haruki held out a hand. 'If you don't want to sink, hold my hand.'

Seis glanced at him, then nervously put his hand in Haruki's. Haruki stepped onto the water in the canal, tugging Seis after him, and walked down to the second ring.

'Here,' he said when they reached the room Seis would be in. 'Bathroom, bedroom... anything you need, just call me. Night.' He left Seis starring around the clinical white room.

Seis woke up early in the next morning in Haurki's house. He still felt lazy and drowsy, but he forced himself to wake up. There was work to be done. And, he wouldn't work just for his sake. But also for the sake of the people who helped him last night. He wanted to repay them for their kindness. He dressed up and after combing his often umkempt hair, he went to the kitchen where Haruki was, eating oranges.
"Morning", Haruki greeted "Did you sleep tight?"
"Good morning" Seis replied politely "I did, thank you for your concern", he smiled a bit.
Haruki frowned.
"You know... You don't need to be so formal! Relax!"
"Hum! Yes!", Seis said promptly. "Hum....", he remembered what Haruki had done last night. "Last night.... what you did was amazing... Are you a merman?"
"Hum.... you could say so... I can turn into a sea-child."
"That's amazing!", Seis said keenly. Haruki grinned.
"Hum.... I've wondering since last night...", Seis began, "But... where is Resim? What job will I apply to?"

Haruki stared at Seis, then laughed. 'Resim? Resim is a man!' Seis flushed. Haruki nudged him. 'No worries, no worries... anyway, he own a restaurant - I forget the name. Everyone simply calls it 'Resim's', so a name is really pointless. He's the only one who calls it by its name. They need a runner - a messenger, if you will, but they have more important messages. Messengers are also only hired for one or two times, but I imagine you want enough money to keep travelling?' Seis nodded. 'Right, we'll eat and then we'll go. what do you want?'

20 minutes later they were standing outside a softly glowing restaurant. Haruki thumped on the glass with the side of his fist. 'Resim! Get out here!' After a couple of seconds, a tall man wandered out of the door, with an almost permanant air of surprise, though that might just be because he had visitors this early. After all, it was just past eight.

'Haruki!' Resim pulled him into a one armed hug. He dwarfed Haruki by at least six inches.

'Can't...breathe...' Haruki gasped out, and Resim let him go with a short laugh.

'And who is this?' he asked, bending down to look at Seis.

'Seis Aozora, sir,' Seis stammered.

'And he's polite too. I'm Resim.' He turned to Haruki. 'And you are here because...'

'I found you a runner. Or at least, he found me. Anyway, he wants the job.' He began reeling off the list of jobs Seis had told him as they walked. 'Any good?'

'Yeah, sure we can try him out. Come on in, Seis.' The three walked into the shop, Resim barely managing to avoid the doorframe. Seis had come to the conclusion that his permanant surprise was just that - permanant. It was as if things kept reappearing for him.

Angie was having the time of her life! The zoo was one of the places she loved unconditonally and she dragged Aventh behind her as she went from cage to cage, rattling off information, Parker trudging behind, scowling and Howie with a vaguely interested smile on his face.
The sun was setting and they went to a cafe for dinner.
"But we havent seen the water kingdom yet." Angie said looking crestfallen when Aventh suggested they call it a day.
"We'll come some other time." Aventh said and Angie nodded, looking a little sad.
As they were walking towards the exit they heard yells, Aventh and the kids ran towards it to check out the matter.
They saw a small cub resembling a white tiger snarling and snapping at the zoo keepers who couldnt seem to get near it.
"Its magical." Aventh said softly, "Its a youma."
"Youma are animals with magical properties, sometimes they resemble normal animals in appearance and sometimes they have completely uniqie appearances." Parker rattled off his textbook definition and looked to Aventh for approval who nodded with a smile, making Parker try to hide a smile of pleasure.
Angie was staring at it as if in a trance. "Its beautiful." She murmured.
The cub growled at a zoo keeper who had gotten too close and snapped angrily.
Angie took a step closer.
"Angie..." Aventh said but stopped when he saw the cub. It had just noticed Angie and had stopped growling, but still looked wary.
Angie walked closer and to the utmost surprise to everyone, the cub came closer to Angie and sat down in front of her, its ears bent low and looked upto her as if wanting a pat on the head which Angie did, a loving look on her face.
"ZOMG." One of the zoo keeper wheezed. "I cant believe it. This cub has been the most bad tempered of the lot. Well understandable its mom died this morning and it has refused food and drink and is probably starving, but doesnt let anyone come too close, if this keeps up it'll surely die..."
"No..." Angie whispered, tears in her eyes as she stroked the cub's head. "Can I feed her?"
"Wil you?" The zoo keeper looked like he wanted to hug her. They rushed to get the cub its formula and watched in amazement as the cub settled in Angie's lap and drank the milk.
After feeding, it curled up in Angie's lap and fell asleep.
"If I leave it here, it'll die." Angie murmured and the zoo keepers nodded.
Aventh knew what was going through her mind but didnt say anything. She had to make her own desicion. She looked at him and he smiled.
Angie looked back down at the cub and stroked its head. Then she looked at the zoo keepers who looked at her hopefully.
"Can I take her?"
"You'll have to adopt her then." One of the zoo keepers said, a happy look on her face since she could sense this young girl would take good care of the cub. "Paper work needs to be done under our adoption policy."
"Alright." Angie jumped up and the cub whimpered as it felt like it was being left behnd. "Im coming back for you." Angie whispered and kissed the top of the cub's head. She raced off for the office, dragging Aventh behind her who, as the zoo keeper informed them, also had to sign his name on the forms since Angie was underaged.
Angie came back an hour later and gathered the once again snarling cub in her arms and skipped to the gate.
"Are two okay with this?" Aventh asked as they walked behind Angie.
"Yep." Howie said with a dreamy smile.
And Parker shrugged, his hands in his pockets.
They walked towards the park outside the gate to wait for Seis.

Seis trudged to Resim's restaurant as quickly as he could. At 'Resim's''s entrance he saw Haruki chatting with the ever apparently surprised Resim. As he noticed him arriving, Haruki waved at him. But Seis could barely wave back, gasping for air.
"Huh? You tired?", Resim asked.
"Hum... I'm fine...", he replied, not very convincing. Resim smiled approvingly.
"You did a fine job. I was actually doubful since you don't seem very reliable", the words struck Seis like arrows "But you did fine!"
Haruki grinned.
"Isn't that great Seis?"
Seis smiled bashfully.
"Yes... Thank you."
After paying Seis, Resim went back to his restaurant, leaving Seis and Haruki under the twilight sky, walking through the streets of the town to "Wildery Park", where Aventh and the kids waited for them. As usual, Haruki guided him there, since Seis was still afraid of getting lost, though he was more familiar with the town.
"Mind if I tag along?" Haruki asked.
Seis shook his head.
"No, not at all! You helped me out a lot! And I think Aventh and the children won't mind... I guess..."
"I see...", he thought about Aventh. There was something about him... A sensation of power... He could feel great power emanating from him. And the kids who showed such loyalty to him seemed promising... with a few years of work he thought. Sea-children were quite intuitive... He was interested. And... He felt that Aventh had something he lacked, but he didn't want to think about that now. Then he stared at Seis. He seemed harmless... But he was a little mysterious. And he didn't speak much about himself. He smirked. The following days would be interesting.
"So where is this Wildery Park?", Seis asked.
"Don't worry, we should be there any minute now."
"Oh, ok...", he bit his inferior lip. Haruki giggled. Seis looked at him, seemingly nervous.
"Don't worry, it's nothing. You just need to relax a little more."
They turned left then, and in front of them, some meters ahead, they saw the entrance for Wildery Park, where Aventh and the kids waited. The girl, Angie, held a beautiful white cub which slept peacefully in one of her arms while waving at them entusiastically with the free arm. Howie and Aventh smiled tranquilly. Parker however grunted the moment he saw them approaching them.
"You are late!" Parker snarled.

"Im sorry." Seis said apologectically, looking upset that he had kept them waiting.
"You're not late." Aventh said with a smile, "We just got here."
"Look, Mr. Haruki, Seis. Isnt she beautiful?" Angie gushed and showed them the cub who was snuggled in the crook of her arm.
"Yeah!" Seis said and peered at the cub with interest. He gingerly petted its head and the cub opened one eye and looked at him then closed it's eye again, looking contented.
"She likes you." Angie said happily and nuzzled the cub's head with her cheek. "What should we call her? Any suggestions?"

Aventh took out a book and started to read it, he usually always had plenty of books in his bag, more than what could fit, though no one really questioned the mage how he was able to fit them all into the bag... it was probably some magic , and though he tried to stay away from reading his books when with the kids, this time though Seis and Haruki where with them, and hopefully they would help Aventh with his research without noticing how they where helping him by keeping the kids occupied.its not that he didn't want to spend time with the kids, but he still had tons of books that he picked up from the Noga library that where left to read.
"So, what is on the menu for today then?" Aventh said without looking up from his book.
