"If you're sure." Said Ichabod. "Well then, let's be on our way." As the two walked to the edge of town, Ichabod turned to Carolyn and spoke. "So, Carolyn, how do you go about defending yourself? Your style of fighting, you could call it."

That was an odd question to add. Her hands slid into her pockets. "I don't...fight?"
She didn't. There was no need for her to. She was a simple student and was never one for violence. And she never was in situations where defending herself was mandatory.

"Ah." A puzzled, if not worried expression crossed Ichabod's face. "You agreed to come on a journey - quite possibly a dangerous one - with no knowledge of how to defend yourself? I should be able to protect you, but no one is infallible. Myself included."

Of course. How could she not think about that? "I'm from the area." As if that meant anything. "It's not that bad." It wasn't like she ever saw an executions or killings. Her area had been pretty tame.

Ichabod sighed. "It's not the citizens I'm worried about. Remember what we're doing: gathering rare alchemy materials. As a human, you can't do Magick, so you must have taken enough Alchemy courses to know that the rarer ingredients come from monsters." He looked at his student. "You... did know that, right?"

"Of course." But honestly, as smart as Carolyn believed she was she rarely paid attention to classes that didn't fall in her direct interest of medical science. She took plenty of other classes and enough classes that focused on the Magicks...but that didn't mean she gave it her full attention.

Ichabod spent a moment in thought. "All right. You're still welcome to come along, but when the time comes for the actual monster-slaying, stay a safe distance away. But if something happens..." He held out a small, circular piece of metal, roughly the size of a coin. "Use this. It has a ward enchantment. It'll keep you safe until I can reach you."

She took the coin and slid her hands back into her pockets. "Don't worry about me professor. "

"Well, you know the area better than I do. If anyone would know the dangers, I suppose it would be you." When the two reached the gate leaving the city, Ichabod stopped. "Are you sure you're ready to leave?" He asked. "We may be gone for longer than you expect."

Carolyn shifted from one foot to the other as she thought this over. "I'm sure," she said. "I haven't been back home since I got here. It's really not as bad as everyone says it is."
At least that's what she remembered.

"Off we go, then." The two walked out of the town and into the surrounding countryside. "You said that you haven't been home recently. If you would like, we can take a detour so you can see your family."

"I wouldn't mind seeing my family. It's been a long time."
It wasn't like she ran away from home and didn't tell them she was leaving. It was just that Carolyn hadn't been in touch much with them after leaving.

"Excellent!" Ichabod beamed, but his smile quickly faded. "It must be nice... having somewhere to go back to."

Carolyn shrugged her shoulders. "It's alright." She shifted uncomfortably. "Where are you from?"
