Old Man Devilsmile

Post by Zeelu »

“Hey there, pa. I know haven’t visited in a while, but you know how life is. It’s just one issue after another. After nearly 180 years of it, I don’t blame you for kickin’ it.”

The rough voice that cut through the evening air at the Menes graveyard belonged to Budika Devilsmile, the local blacksmith. The entity she spoke to was a simple headstone made of dull gray rock that did little to stand out among the others. In the unique letters of the Kahunian alphabet, the stone read “Yamato Xavier Devilsmile”.

Budika was highly familiar with the name. This three-year-old marker indicated that her own father rested six feet below her. It was the alligator Yamato that rised her when her mother passed, taught her everything about the fine art of blacksmithing, and untied her with her acquaintance, Devani. He was stern reptilian characterized by his stubbornness and quick temper. When Budika reflected upon it, she realized she was just like her daddy. Even though she always held the opinion that he was a major jerk, she could never deny that she loved him. In fact, they’re some days when Budika wished Yamato were still around.

Victor was not terrably used to the Kahun Dynasty, him being a halfbreed he isn't loved there, not hated ither. Though, in his searches, he decided to visit the Dynasty a while ago and had taken up residence among it's harsh lands. He had just recently been wandering and made his way into Menes for a few supplys and water. He hadn't even reached the oasis when the grave yard cought his attention, not really spiritualy like, just the fact that he liked to roam the graves and read the names of the dead. He found it a sort of way to meet new people in a sence.

He strolled through the gates and examined the grave stones to read names and any comments on them. His favorite was "Hold true to your self and unto others." on a grave stone labled "Horich Von Heltzer". Victor smerked and replied; "Very true my friend." Just then he heard a woman talking, so he glanced over, a very strong looking Alligator stood infront of a grave and looked apoun it. Victor didn't want to disterb so he kept weaving through the rows, periodicly brushing down a bit of fur that had been upturned by the wind.

Budika decided it was best to return home. She turned and headed for the exit, weaving through the rows of headstones. The smithy was then forced to stop in her tracks when she accidentally bumped into an elder gentleman. She didn’t offer an apology immediately, for she became very apprehensive to discover that the stranger was a hybrid.

Budika did not believe that hybrids were the scum of Feila like most of her Kahunian brethren, but she still felt uneasy around them. There was always a nagging sensation in the back of her head that told her that those of mixed blood could not be trusted. Perhaps a general dislike of half-breeds was deeply embedded in reptilian blood.

After an awkward moment of glancing over her company with a wary eye, Budika finally question, “What are you doing here, stranger?” Her gruff voice was coated in a thick layer of suspicion and hostility. It was obvious that the blacksmith was not pleased to meet this man.

Victor hadn't noticed Budika get up, weave through the graves stones and head in his direction untill she bumped into him. He didn't expect to have a confrentation with her, nor any one other than vendors that were kind enough to even notice him. After the short pause, where he didn't know what to say, the alligator spoke. Her voice matched her build and normal kahun tones to hybrids. Victor examined her for a second and though she might be a blacksmith or other hard worker. So he responded in his normal gentle voice; "Oh, I was just passing by to get some supplys when the grave yard cought my attention. I simply came in to pay my respects to the passed." Victor's fur waved in the slight breaze as he smiled his cheerful smile. "I hope I'm not intruding."

Budika gave a thuggish snort at the stranger’s comment. Even though the half-breed was proving to be trustworthy with his honeyed tone and polite conduct, the smithy wasn’t quite ready to let her guard down. She’d have to learn more a about this newcomer before that happened.

“Respects, you say?” the alligator sternly inquired as she fold her muscular arms over her chest, “What connection to you have with these people? What compels you to honor reptiles that would more than likely smite you if they were still alive?”

"Hmm, good question indeed." Replied victor, grabbing his chin. "Well, I am reptilian no?" He said and waved his hand away from his chin. " Though I am a hybrid, I see no reason to hate ither side of myself. Even if one would rather see me dead than walking by. I only say a person is bad if they have done harm to others. I have not seen if the people that rest here have indeed one anyting harmfull and therefore cant be hostile in anyway to them. So, I pay my respects only because I dont really know if they are good or actually bad." Victor slid his hands into this sleaves and crossed them, very classic for a "monk" appearance.

Budika tried to keep the stone cold expression of suspicion on her scaly face, but found that she could not. The stranger was so tender in is tone; so honest in his claims. Slowly, the alligator’s facial features softened and her muscles relaxed. With a gentler tone and a heavy sigh, the Kahunian admitted simply, “I believe you.”

“You may address me as Budika Devilsmile” Budika continued on, her voice now relaxed and accepting, “I am one of a handful of blacksmiths here in Menes. I specialize in heavy armor and weapons, but I can forge pretty much anything if there’s a need for it.”

"My name is Unschuldig, but I'm known simply as Victor." Victor bowed slightly. The alligator was unusually muscular for even a female, but that question was solved by the fact that she was a blacksmith. Victor had always been interested in the art of metalurgy.

"I my self could be called a fire mage." Victor drew his hands apart and his right thumb and middle fingers. A flame about an inch floated over his thumb, he snapped again to extinguish it. "But I have no real occupation, I'm really just a wanderer what picks up some gold here and there doing odd and end jobs. Though I have thought many times to take up the art of Blacksmithing when I finnally settle down."

Budika scratched her lower jaw with her claws as she listened to the half-breed named Victor. She raised an eyebrow out of interest when the old man revealed he was a fire mage; it reminded her of the way Devani would manipulate flames in the name of entertainment. She was also captivated by the fact he was both interested in blacksmithing and was a hand for hire. The alligator though this could work in not only Victor’s favor, but her as well.

“Is that so?” Budika responded when her company finished speaking, “If that’s the case, I got a proposition for you: How about you come work for me for a while? You will revive food and shelter no cost to you, and receive ten gold pieces for every hour you spend at the coals. It wouldn’t hurt me to have an extra hand, and it’s probably the best offer you’re gonna get in the whole nation of Kahun. So, want do you say?”

Budika then offered a webbed hand to Victor, wanting to seal the deal with a handshake. The reptile was always one for honor and pride, so she would never break her word once the treaty made.

Victor was taken a bit, he hadn't expected any offer of work, or even work for food, shelter, and an ammount of money handn't earned per hour before. He did have his fears for a moment as the aligator presented her hand for agreement. That was quickly shaken off, as this reptile seemed to have a mind of honor. Victor shook Badika's hand, "It would be an honor." It was indeed by far the best offer he could ever hope of getting in Kahun.

Budika gave a grin as she wrapped her robust, webbed hand around Victor’s more delicate one. She had the feeling that this was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. At the end of the handshake, the alligator threw a muscular arm around the half-breed’s slender shoulders.

“Now that’s the spirit!” the smithy exclaimed in her gruff voice, “I’m sure you’ll do just fine. Now, come with me to my humble residence. The sun is sinking behind the dunes, and I’m sure you need you’re rest.”

Budika directed a clawed finger toward the sky. Sure enough, the gold chariot that brought warmth during the day was riding off below the horizon. The lazy clouds above were stained glorious pinks, reds, and yellows as the weak, moaning winds rolled them over the heavens. Even the first few stars of night where beginning to appear, and they added the finishing touches to the harmonic scenery.

"In deed." He said, the weight of the aligators arm must have been that of a full suit of armor. she was no lightweight, and a force to be reconed with. No wonder metal bends before her fire and hammer. As for rest, well, he could stand a few days without rest, thanks to his reptillian genes. But a good sleep sounds good before hard days at the forge.
