Heading down the road in the opposite direction from where the cloaked figure was a second figure wrapped in a traveling cloak. She carried a large bundle across one shoulder and her steps were heavy as though she was wearing armor.

The mystery figure; who was much shorter than Ciel and the man he was talking to, seemed lost in thought. So much so that the figure didn't even seem to notice when they bumped into the figure Ciel was talking to accidentally.

"Sorry." said the figure plainly and in a woman's voice, turning slightly to look at the person she had bumped into. As this happened, the hood slid back from Ciel's new friend, giving those present a glimpse of his face.

The man moved away some, he had no hair, in fact his head looked hard and jagged. He looked up showing that he had no eyes and sharp teeth with no lips like a skull.
"No no....Sen is sorry....rain blocks out scent of people, would of moved out of ladies way but could not" He turned to Ciel again as he placed his hood back up "My name is Sen....you....now that I feel it...you not human....will you help Sen if I pay you gems" Sen pulled out his hand, a three clawed hand and opened to show very expensive jewels, gems and ruby's.

Ciel's eyes nearly popped out as the jewels glimmered magnificently. "Holy mother of....." Ciel said reverently. Those gems were huge! How much would they cost? Enough, I tell ya!
"Huh?" He looked up distractedly and was taken aback by Sen's monstrous look, his eyes going nervously to those sharp teeth, but as Sen spoke, Ciel quickly pushed the thought to the back of his mind. He had met his share of weird looking people. True that this one was weirder than usual...but who was he to judge, right? He gave his most charming smile though the thought crossed his mind that this guy might not be able to see him do so, given he had no eyes. "Of course I'll help." He said earnestly, suddenly in a good mood. Things might turn out well after all. "What do you need help with, big guy?"

Sen immediately forgot about the girl and focused on Ciel "Oh Joy...Happy I am to hear this" Sen closed his hands though and tilted his head.
"I need help, I do not fight much...no cause harm much and need person to help....I need to go find place, big place filled with not much humans.....mainly dirt filled." Sen dropped a few of the gems into a pouch full of them, more than enough in the pouch to buy a lot of land with.
"But up to you if your up to traveling.....but...." Sen looked around, he seemed worried by something "some humans may try to stop me on our way...Sen's people are not popular."

The head of a maul rested against Sen's back. "And why would that be, demon?" asked the woman, standing behind him. The Bundle on her back had been partially unwrapped and she held a massive hammer in one hand as easily as one might hold a dagger.

"Maybe you'd like to elaborate for me. Or maybe you'd like me to turn you into a pancake in the middle of the road." she threatened. Regina was not one to mince words and the look of the spider creature was disconcerting to say the least.

"Either way, I don't have much patience with all this rain so I suggest you answer quickly." said Regina to Sen.

Ciel nearly had a heart attack. His new found source of income was in mortal danger!

"Hey lady, why don't you put that away?" He said cautiously, raising his hands and edging towards her. He didn't want to startle her into attacking...mostly because one swing of that hammer looked like it could crush anyone into bits. "I'm sure we can all talk without drawing out weapons."

Sen had a strange laugh "Lady not know of my kind....I am no demon, I am Arachnia...the race that lives in the underworld of many great cities, even this port....we built most of this place with no recognition and if we ask for pay humans scoff or look at us like the lady does" Sen lowered to the ground and touched the hard dirt. His hand sunk in it though like it was quicksand and he pulled out a common crystall. He placed it into his mouth and bit it easily like it was candy "We require no built home, no flesh, and not much water and all we ask is simple items for payment and are laughed at or looked at like demons...but we forgive, Sen forgives" Sen stood up straight showing his full height. He looked around as he talked and seemed to not look at them directly when he spoke.

"If you wish to join us I have enough to pay....Sen finds enough riches a king should have in a normal day but....I get hungry and stones taste great" Sen pulled out a diamond this time "Oh....can't eat this....feels like a hard one."

Ciel was now near enough that if Regina would raise her hammer to strike, he could warp Sen away from harm's reach.
"Why don't you listen to what he has to say and maybe he can hire you as well." Ciel said in an attempt to placate her.
He wasn't going to blame the lady. Sen looked very frightening and he was sure that if they ran into some guards in the city, he would definitely be attacked as a monster. Unlike Ciel, who could hide in a cloak, Sen stood out like a sore thumb. In fact, Ciel wasn't entirely sure Sen was not a monster. But he was the type to give everyone the benefit of doubt and he wanted to help Sen out if he indeed needed it. And right now, Regina looked ready to bash him to bits which could make things much harder.

Suddenly he noticed Regina's armor from under her cloak. "Are you a knight?" Ciel asked. <>

"Lies." said Regina. "No one would trust a creature that looks as you do with such work." Her hammer never wavered once though it's weight must have been significant.

"Now state your business here or I will crush you as I would a walnut." Regina did not look as though she would remain patient for long, though when Ciel spoke to her she responded, "No, I am no knight. I am a warrior and a soldier. But rather than fight for a lord, I fight for the people."

Her attention returned fully to Sen, "Now speak demon or accept your death."

Sen moved back away from Regina before stopping as he remembered "I can prove to you that I am no demon" Sen then pointed to a huge mansion up a hill not far from Midgard "The governor of this place knows who I am....I can prove my race built this harbor as well when it first started." Sen turned and started to walk "But I only do this to prove human girl wrong....I will not die because of a naive misunderstanding."

Sen started to move but stopped and turned at the girl "No....Sen has no need to prove to human girl why he should not die....humans always treat us as such so why should I prove....and how does human girl have the right to accuse me of being something she knows nothing about."

Ciel looked from on to the other. This did not look good. One wrong move from one or the other and a fight would start. Now that his own interests lay in the mix, he was twice as invested, especially in the safety of Sen.
"Come now, guys." Ciel said, scratching the back of his head and laughing lightly. "Let's call it a truce. "
He looked at Sen. "I think it;s a good idea to talk to the governor. Not only would this lady be appeased but we might be able to avoid further misunderstandings if we can get a written statement allowing you safe passage out of town?"

Regina's hand did not waver when Sen moved, but she did take a step forward when he did and the maul came up in a ready position for smiting. "We are not through here 'Sen' and I would appreciuate it if you stay where you are."

Things could have gotten messy right then and there, but then Ciel spoke up, "...Very well, but when you are proven wrong creature, I will expect your withdrawal. By foot or by flight, it's your choice." she warned.

She shouldered her weapon but the tension did not leave her body. It was clear that if she was given a reason, she would strike, but for now it seemed she had been assuaged. Now it was up to the governor to help Sen keep his head.

Sen nodded and started walking toward the mansion. When they go to it Sen turned to the two "No need for written proof.....man will come out to speak with me out back like always....but first...." Sen made a strange noise from his throat like a call and after a few minutes one could be hear not far from them as the gate opened for them.
"Sen.....what does great spider want here?" a female stood at the door, she seemed normal until they could see her eyes and skin color. The female a pitch black eyes, strange antenna's coming from her head and her skin faded into a reddish brown tone.
"I wish to speak with the governor again Anshion, it seems our race needs to prove something" Sen sad at the strange woman who was very short compared to him "Where are your brothers?"
"They are building the tunnel Great Spider but...."
"But what young one?" Sen said crouching down some, Anshion moved away some, not scared but more like she was just afraid to say "Tell me Anshion, is the human mistreating you and your brothers.....young lady" Sen pointed to Regina and even motioned Ciel over "This is Anshion part of my race you believe to be demon.....she will show you how mistreated we are."

Anshion hesitated at first before speaking "Human governor keeps us from harvesting and only makes us dig tunnel...keeps me in mansion to make brothers dig harder and...and..." she seemed like she was about to cry but Sen placed a hand on her shoulder and her antenna started to move.
"I see.....then proof not only reason I am here.....I guess I must thank naive woman for making me come" Sen said as he started to walk into the estates yard.

Ciel hesitated, he shared a look with Regina then gave a little shrug and followed Sen inside. He cast a curious look at Anshion, He felt bad for her if she was being mistreated. He was also curious to see what work Sen's race did and how. He pulled his hood more over his face because he didn't want any humans here seeing him and raising a ruckus though seeing as they might have encountered Sen's race now and then, he didn't think they'd be too averse to him...but then again one can never be too sure. The rain was still coming down though it was more of a fast drizzle."How long have you been working here?" He asked Anshion.

Anshion hesitated before answering but when she did her voice was a little shaky "I have been here since I was born......not much other than that."
"Anshions family has been working here for decades....they helped build the tunnel not far from the city and most of the mines in the area but the humans use the mines more since we like to feed off of minerals" Sen added as they walked into the garden area of the mansion and Anshion went ahead to get the governor.

"We do not ask for gold, nor a place to stay.....we simply enjoy work and creating new things....but some humans tend to see that as a weakness and most of my kind can be gullible and when they ask for a price they are given stones or nothing that they can use" Sen took off his cloak and the legs that were cramped together unfolded and went to the ground holding him up now. His silver stone like skin wet from the rain "I am known as the great spider type of our race....Anshion and her family are gentle ants...she should have 50 other siblings but I only see her....why do you think that?"
