Story of Two Face
Kink in the road - Part 2
Two face awoke to sound of crackling. The sound sweet chestnuts, a seasonal delicacy, made as they roasted on an open fire. He found himself sitting slouched in the chair with a empty pitcher on his lap. With a deep inhale through the his nose to the lip of the pitcher, his senses stimulated to the fragrance of a rich fortified wine.
"Roast chestnuts, Fruit and some watered down ale is all we have I'm afraid" said Tiraro
" We had some spiced Port but you seem to have drank the pantry dry of it" said the grey elf, smirking as his guest attempted to pull himself together clearly suffering from his indulgence of the drink.
" Are we going to discuss business now Tiraro?" Questioned Two face as he followed his host into an adjoining banquet hall, his inelegant stumbling disturbing the precariously balanced treasures of the hoarder.
Sitting down at the end of the banquet table and helping himself to items from the display of food arranged on it. Two face paused and impatiently gazed at his guest waiting to converse.
" Well then..." Pausing to chomp on a wedge of orange mid sentence "... Did you acquire what I requested?" Questioned Two face.
" Well yes and no" replied Tiraro his face squirming at the table manners of his guest.
"I have procured the Mana stone you requested" said the host, unraveling a cloth bundle to reveal a jagged black gemstone.
"It weakly glows a shade of light green and is ice cold to the touch in proximity to those who dwindled in the art of sorcery"
"as for your other item of interest more time is required"
"The man that sold me it, provide this small locked ledger with it" "it may be useful should you be able to break its lock."
"What is it you want in exchange?" Questioned Two face
Tiraro took a small letter out of the inner pocket of his waistcoat with a wax seal and handed it to Two face.Two face broke the seal and read the name "Gregory Lechance" scribed on the letter. With this Two face shook hands with Titaro and made his leave.
