[[ Fuck yeah. ]]
You nod. "I spoke with the Elders last night, and they advised me on the wisest course of action. I think that I will take you on as an apprentice, as well as a young child. We will share the burden of responsibility equally in raising the youngling, and I'll be able to teach the both of you. In the event that something should happen to me, I'm sure that the two of you could work together to become strong."
Quinn nods, looking excited. You look behind you, making sure that Walther has remained in one place. He has, though his eyes lock with yours as you turn to look at him. You can't quite read the expression on his face.
"That said," you say, turning back to Quinn, "I'm not sure of how good a teacher I'll turn out to be. Bear with me if I screw things up every so often, yeah?"
"Hey, I've got your back, Osyki." he says, clapping you on the back. "You and me against the spirit world."
You chuckle. "In that case, meet me at my hut this evening. We can start your basic lessons, so that you have a head start on the kid."
He nods, flashing a wide grin at you. As he jogs away, you wonder if he wasn't a little too excited to be leaving the Slayers. A thought occurs to you, and you call after him. "Quinn! Any idea where Pierce got off to?"
"He should be patrolling back by the north side of town." Quinn calls over his shoulder. "It's still the middle of his shift."
Turning on your heel, you decide to harvest some Totem material from the pile of poisonous creatures before they are burned. You work carefully as Walther watches you, wrapping your hands in cloth to avoid any accidental stings. After half an hour's work, you have a sizeable pile of trophies in your pack, including the blade from the tail of the Verdis Wyrm.
