Stratos


The only city still in tact, only the very few that are wealthy live here. There are still many beggars and poor people on the streets though… The city managed to survive as no battles took place around Stratos.

Crocodile paces around the casino floor, looking about as he paced the rounds once again. He spied a plainer man gambling and decided to investigate. The man was winning more and more with each bet and throw of dice till finally Crocodile reached over and gripped the man's second hand. Crocodile cracked the knuckles with a simple squeeze along with something inside the man's hand. Crocodile pulled the hand out and made it open as he caught with his other hand a device that hand two buttons that said Even and Odd. "Cheater.", was all that Crocodile said before his hand was around the man's throat before throwing him into the arms of security guards. "Take this trash to jail and all he winnings go to the house, as they should.", he announced with a slight grin to the man's displeasure at being caught in his moment of triumph.

Marie had never been to this part of town before, or it had at least been a very long time since she had. She remembers most of the shops, the hotels... but not this casino, towering over the majority of the district. It seemed almost downright garish compared to the buildings here, their walls a somber, sandy brown. Before Marie so much as stepped foot into the casino, the cheater is escorted away, pleading innocence and struggling in the guard's grips. That's what happens to cheaters, she thinks, pacing inside. The bright colors within, paired with the sting of bright neon lights, burn her retinas more than the outside had. To Marie, this seems down-right offensive.

Crocodile paced away, continuing on his round of the main floor. His eyes went to the door as he paced about the slot machines, his sandy yellow eyes focusing on the young woman that had stepped through his door. He paced on his way as he paid no mind to the new patron to his casino.

As much as she'd like to avoid it, Marie is tempted by the slots. The odds of her winning were slim, but the profits for the owner would be great... should she choose to spend all of her money unwisely. Her will finally breaks as she gives in to temptation, sitting at one of the slots and pulling the lever, having inserted about 3 play's worth in quarters.

Crocodile paces about, wondering towards the security room as the guard shift was getting ready to change for the day.

After spending about 20 dollars in quarters and playing for what feels like hours (give or take a half hour, for food and restroom breaks), Marie finally sees a glimmer of good luck. 7...7...7. "Ya-ha!! Finally!!"
The machine gives out it's usual celebratory flashes and tones before spiting out a whopping 2 dollars in quarters.
"E-eh...? That's it...???" Marie hits her boiling point. All of that money spent for chump change. It's only natural that she vents her frustrations by shouting a string of obscenities in her Father's native tongue.

Ryan grumbled, why the hell would anyone need anything on the list Duna had given him, especially in combination with each other? It didn't make any sense really... He entered a jeweller's whose owner he knew intend on finding out if she knew where to get 3 kg of Quartz.

Ryan entered the back of the store, careful not to bump into the girl standing in front of one of the displays, "Hey, Ellie", Ryan said with a smile to the artisan, who was one of is uncle's old drinking buddies, as well as a fellow contractor if some his uncle's projects needed some finer details like decorations and inlaid gems and the like,"Do you know where I can find...Wha...HEY!", he didn't get to finish his sentence as he had to dodge a chisel the brunette threw at his head, "You little brat", the woman growled, "Got the nerve to show up as if nothing happened after worrying us sick."

"Uhm... Oops?", Ryan answered tentatively, causing Ellie to deflate. She wanted to be angry at him, really, but it was such a typically Ryan-thing to forget about things like worrying acquaintances, that she could hardly maintain it. "Stupid lug", she muttered.

"Ehr... Anyway, I'm on an errand for a girl in Helcia, but gods, i don't know where to get 3 kg of Quartz. Could you point me to one of your suppliers?"

Ellie sighed and acquiesced, "Sure, get back to the front while I search for the list", her mood switched again, "But we're going to have a long talk about not letting others know you are doing well", she threathened, before walking towards their office and starting to rummage to some papers.

'Gee, moodswings much?', he thought to himself, as he went back to the public area of the store. He paled though, as he saw the chisel Ellie had thrown at him before embedded in the wall next to the head of a very shaky girl. Whether she was trembling from shock or anger he could not tell. 'Oh.., Shi...'

When Ryan finished placating the shaken victim, who, understandably, still left in a huff, he turned to the girl that had approached them. "No, nothing is wrong", he answered awkwardly, "auntie Ell just chewed me out for being a 'stupid lug', and not contacting her for 6 months. Thank you for asking though"

Ryan rubbed his neck and grinned sheepishly, "I claim temporarily idiocy really", "Temporarily, my ass!", Ellie , who had overheard that answer yelled from the back, causing Ryan to blush. 'Auntie', he though mortified. "I was living with my uncle and when he died, and when I could no longer pay the rent, I vacated the place and took up travelling, but failed to notify Ellie and Evan about that little fact."
