"FEK FEK FEK!" He looked around hurriedly. "Lavender!" He rushed past the people in the crowded streets. One moment he had his sister's hand, the next she suddenly went missing. She did things like this often, to play with him, but this time, this was a crowded street, in an area they don't often go to. He looked around frantic with worry. "Lavender Where! Where!?"

He knew that she was okay, he had to believe that, but still, everytime this happens it scared the pants off of him. Because she couldn't speak. His normally sharp blue eyes were clouded with worry for his little sister as he kept moving back down the way that they had come from.

But soon enough he would be lost himself, not recognizing the buildings he was around. "Fek's sake!" He looked around to see if there might be anyone he could talk to. There was a few people drinking outside what looked like a pub on this hot Suan day. He was covered in sweat as he walked up to the establishment. He had to ask someone, even with his bad common, he had to try and convey what he needed as best as he could.

Panting from tirelessly running, he looked and saw a gentleman drinking alone, deciding to try his luck he would ask this man. He cleared his throat so that he could gain the mans attention. "Ser.. Pleas for... help." He was kind of glad that he was already flushed red from the burning of the sun. "Need... help. Must find sister...Lavender. Lost hold... got lost. Worried for Lavender. For sister."

His eyes searched the mans, hoping that he'd understand, knowing that falling back to Common Sign wasn't going to help him. Unless this person magically knew the gesture language. Which he probably didn't. He blinked, clearing his throat. "Pleas. Ser."

Nalin looked young, and his long straight hair was currently a frizzy mess behind him as he kept breathing hard. But he seemed determined to find Lavender, and almost a little desperate. "Look... like me. Seen her? Or... mind help looking? Lavender... Can't... can't.. what... word." He looked frustrated now. Trying to wrack his brain for the word that he need. "Lavender Mute! Pleas, must keep safe!"

Some of the other customers were looking at him weird, laughing at him for his funny way of speaking or just glaring at him for disturbing their day with worries that they didn't care about.

Almund had been expressively warm today what with the people urgently shuffling about, then again having two suns shining constantly in the sky never helped either. Who would want to sit in never ending daylight with minimal shade, with people gathering in mass to a busy market no less. Certainly not Enrick honestly. Yet he had business here and that would save him a trip later, and that business being a replacement for the last of his lure he'd used earlier. Being a fisherman you would tend to go through it like crazy, and Enrick didn't feel like spending the rest of this day, going out to fish with a net because he no longer had lure on hand.

Not long after he'd made the trip to the market he met a few fishing pals for a quick drink, just outside of the pub but still within the shade with drinks all around. It was just a few other guys of course, all had their jokes and talked about their bigger catches. One even bragged about a massive tuna they hauled aboard, but of course the other guys were far too interested in something else at that point. Women. The lovely passing of a group of ladies distracted them easily enough, their comments kept to low murmurs as they talked about that next. Enrick of course simply chuckled and drank from his mug, but couldn't help watching as he quietly agreed they were attractive to watch.

And then along comes another individual who seemed to be asking around, frantically searching for something called Lavender or so he inquired. He approached the group at the table and the other fisherman looked to one another, perplexed by the oddity of this occurrence that walked right up to them. How did they handle this? Like they normally would, unsure of how to act so they murmured to one another. Save Enrick. Green eyes turned to silver as he looked up to the blond haired man, his eyebrows furrowed a little as he tried to better grasp at the words being spoken. This man clearly had little way in speaking the Common Tongue, but as far as Enrick knew he was looking for his sister who was named Lavender. So it wasn't the flower then...

"Lost yer sis' then did y'?" He inquired with a lean back into his chair, the other fisherman looked at him questionably. One even shook his head, a silent gesture telling him to just let it go. Nonsense. This poor sap lost his sibling and he looked too flustered to even speak straight. Enrick rose from his chair and took one last drink from his mug, his bare torso covered by the vest he'd rested on the back of his shirt afterwards. "Sorry boys, looks like d'is fisherman's got a siblin' t' find." He mused as he checked to make sure his vest was snug on his body, a wink shot to the stranger as he started to walk along the street. "So... Yer sis' is mute then? That why y' don't speak much Common? Why don't we start where y' last saw 'er, then we'll take a look 'round there t' find her."

He figured it was worth a shot to try, since he'd hope some other decent person would help him at his own peril. The Mixed blood looked to the stranger with his eyes now changed to a mixture of silver and turquoise, a friendly smile given to the stranger he decided to help out. "Name's Enrick by de way."

5th of Suan of the 710th Arc
Nalin blinked and had to take a moment as he turned to the man from another table. What had he said? Accent's weren't really his strong suit. It seemed his buddies were trying to get him to not do something though. Probably help him. He frowned at that. If it had been their family, they wouldn't have felt that way. Or one of their sarding fishing buddies even.

But the hard look was only there for a moment before he looked back to the man that was getting up and straightening himself up. That's when he noticed something strange. Had that man's eye color changed? What race had that trait again? He couldn't remember. He wasn't about to try and ask either. Not with his rugged, beaten down Common.

"Yes... Sister missing... But... Can't remember ... where lost Lavender. In market?" He cleared his throat. "I am Nalin. Yes, Sister mute, learned Common Sign to talk with her. So.. Common hard sometimes to speak." He looked around, trying to find his sister somewhere in the crowd, anywhere." He definitely was a sight in all white thought. It just accented his pale.. sunburned skin.

"Thank... Enrick" They way that he said it sounded more like Eihnreek, but that would soon be fixed... well hopefully. "Lavender... likes to play.. but... lost in crowd this time.. If ...thing happens to my dear flower... I..." His eyes darkened more. "Fek... I ... no want to think 'bout it." He looked to Enrick. "We... still new to town... only here.. 'bout two arcs? Just... scrapin' by."

He smiled softly. "But... Lavender... worth every hardship." The way that he spoke of his sister, it was obvious how much he cared about her as he went back to looking around for her. "Lavender, like me, but... slender, silver n' gold hair... black dress. Should have stay'd still after one break. Normal is time sister toys with me. Been... " He looks thoughtful as he looks up at the suns. "Maybe three breaks? Too long. Lavender might be scared.... since no can call for help. Must find her." He looked to Enrick. "So... thank. For not laughing. For doing thing."

The smile on his face now was one that was sad, but hopeful. "More hope now." He tapped his heart with his middle finger, his thumb facing up and pinky pointing out and down. "Good heart." Then he pointed towards Enrick's heart his smile brightening a bit. He didn't actually touch the man, just pointed at him. To emphasize his words.

Enrick had neglected to remember that he'd drank a mug of beer before heading out, and now that they were in the sun it definitely reminded him then. Water would've been a good idea in all honesty, either that or he should've just drank water to begin with. While his mouth wasn't dry insofar he definitely felt the heat of the sun, as it heavily kissed on his tan skin while they walked down the street towards the market. Trials like this were the kind Enrick liked to just lounge around in the ocean, let the water cool him off while his skin darkened from the rays of the suns.

It dawned on Enrick that this Lavender girl, as Nalin mentioned, was mute and yet he went around calling her name earlier... Which only went to prove just how worrisome it had to be, losing track of her amidst the busier part of the Trial in a largely crowded area. Enrick knew because he'd been there earlier before, and here he was about to go back where all those hot and sweaty folk were gathered just to do some shopping. His eyes started to resemble his attitude towards that with small specks of orange now, but they still maintained their turquoise hues as the pair walked towards the market.

"No need t' tank me bub, we'll find 'er sooner or later." He assured Nalin with a short grin as he paid close attention to the details, admittedly the blond man had a habit of signing when he talked. "Hey, dun worry 'bout it. Worst t'ing dat can happen is 'er gettin' heat stroke, which she might've found a spot wit' shade." He surmised with a pat on Nalin's shoulder as his eyes briefly looked forward among the people they were passing by. "Yeah, Almund's a bit sketchy wit' newcomers. Give everyone a while an' they'll warm up t' ya." Enrick assured him as he felt the statement actually quite true, Almund had it's ups and downs but overall the community seemed friendly enough.

Enrick then narrowed his eyes as he listened to how long Lavender hadn't been found, which then made it all the more clear why Nalin had been in a panic. That long without finding a trace of someone you cared about? Enrick would definitely had felt the same as well, probably reacted just as stressed also when he thought about it. "Damn, that's a while mate." Yet even then Nalin mentioned in fragmented sentences how much it was worth it, and how much he appreciated the fact Enrick himself came along to help out. "It's no big deal lad, trust me I'd'a been doin' the same in yer shoes." He reassured Nalin with a soft grin with eyes now a combination of green with orange specks. Then came another gesture he didn't see coming, a compliment that Nalin felt to offer him.

Good heart? Somehow the orange turned to yellow instead and he remained thankful his skin tone was too dark to notice, as he'd felt the rush of blood to his cheeks from the compliment Nalin had given him. "Yeah roi, Oi just figured y' could use de help is all." He brushed it off with a hand rub to the backside of his head, but the smile made it obvious that he appreciated the gesture even when he looked away. "Anyways... Lavender'll stay in one place, any ideas on where t'at might've been? Favorite spot she likes or... safe place she might know 'bout?" He asked now that they were in the market, alternatively it was an easier way to avoid being fed more compliments.

5th of Suan of the 710th Arc
He was starting to feel the heat himself. Not that he was going to admit it, but it was obvious with one look at him. Panting, looking quite tired with shaded eyes as he looked around for basically the most important thing to him in his life. He did watch Enrick though too, because the way his eyes changed was just fascinating to him. He smiled softly and chuckled a bit. "Enrick only one who figured such I guess." He cleared his throat and thought for a moment.

"Lavender wouldn't... know how.. get home.. Smart but... would get lost, like me. Would find shade. That is if .. no... Lavender... My little flower is fine." He gripped his hands into fists. Seeming to have a deep inner struggle about his sisters safety. He smiled again at that moment.

"Look, for shade. Likes... music and dancing. Maybe, heard music? When...?" He paused, thinking long and hard, though still walking. He shook his head. "Don't know.. Can't remember." Suddenly fear was starting to show on his face, "All alone... No nels.. no voice..." He held his head in his hand almost starting to pull out his hair. "Strong but... without voice... like... doe, waiting to be shot!"

He started looking around faster. "All alone. In the.." he blinked, looking like he'd just realized something, grabbing Enrick's shoulder. "Light! Where most light!?" His worried eye's searching over Enrick's. He had found his answer, just not the name of if.

On Enrick's shoulder, Nalin's hands were shaking. Like he was trying to keep himself under control. From what, even Nalin didn't really know. But acting wildly wasn't going to help them find his sister. He knew that. He had to think logically, and logic told him what he'd needed to know. She didn't like the dark. She'd be out in the sun, even if it made her pass out from heat stroke.

So it would seem that while the girl was smart enough to handle herself alone for a while, she still lacked the knowledge on the proper route home in minor crisis's such as this. Nalin seemed to question the possibility that she would've sought shelter within shade, after the little disappearing stunt she'd pull with him nearly three breaks ago. There were other murmurs such as the possibility of music, but still his mind proved wonder back to the thought of her.

And the chance of danger lingering as well.

Almund never really felt that dangerous to Enrick, then again he was raised her from a very young age. Yet he also had to remember Nalin and his sister were still new, so the territory felt just as dangerous as it did foreign to the both of them. "Just relax mate, she's a lil' girl is all. Nobody ain't gonna treat her like some prey, least not as long as she stays outta the less favorable places in Almund..." He remarked with a finger scratched over his chin, his turquoise eyes then rose to the sky as he thought where all they could look. He then felt Nalin's hand clutch his shoulder, just a little tighter than he would've appreciated.

His eyes widened as they turned into a combination of turquoise and orange as he looked to the man. Light? That really narrowed it down by... a lot. Seriously everywhere they went was nothing but sunlight here, and Nalin's tendency to panic had started to unnerve Enrick just slightly. "Hey mate, take it easy aight! We'll find 'er yet but first, ya gotta learn t' calm down!" He urged Nalin to do so with a brush off the shoulder, with a pat on his companion's shoulder afterwards. "Cheer up, ho'kay?" When he looked forward once more he did so at the market and then... past the market at the tree beyond. The Glass Tree come to think of it. That was a place smack dab in the middle of town...

And it was also a place where many people went during the day. Frequented a lot actually and a popular place to spend time praying, or leave offerings to the Immortals as well. "Hang on a tick." He thought more about with eyes narrowed toward the tree, their hues brightened into an aquatic hue as well. "The Glass Tree mate! T'at ought'a be where she might go, if she were interested in bein' a well lit place!" He looked to Nalin then with eyebrows raised. "Sound feasible mate?"

5th of Suan of the 710th Arc
Nalin looked at Enrick apologetically when he realized that he'd invaded the mans space a bit much. He kept watching his eyes, trying to make sense of the colors, though he still wasn't 100% sure what any of them meant. Though by the way that the man looked he just hoped that he wasn't being a little too crazy about finding his sister.

Nalin followed Enrick's eye's to the tree though and thought a moment as Enrick asked about it. "Feesable... yes. Yes!" He smiled brightly and started walking. Maybe a bit hurriedly for Enrick's taste, but Nalin was starting to feel desperate to find his sister. "With... length of time.. Lavender pleanty of time find tree. Always eyes tree. Fascinated. Likes plants." He hits his forehead with the palm of his head. "Such idiot! Thanks you! Reminder needed!"

He looked back to make sure that Enrick was still with him. He slowed down a bit, so that they could make it through the crowd without losing each other. He wasn't running, just walking fast, he looked quite tired in all frankness. The deep shadow's under his eyes seeming to just get darker. But he kept going, he was a man on a mission.

"Sorry... 'bout ... shoulder. You kay?" He looked at him and then back to the tree. "Shaken... Not had... this much problem... finding Lavender." He sighed and fell silent.

The silence from Nalin was, not awkward. In some ways it seemed, very natural, like, his proper state of being. He looked more comfortable being so at least.

Though Nalin had admitted earlier that he'd gotten lost on his own, finding his way to the The Glass Tree seemed an easy task. Taking twisting and turning paths that took them in and out of crowds.

That's when he started hearing the music. He smiled, they were almost there. Someone was playing an instrument with an interesting sound to it. When he broke into the clearing beneath the tree, it was bustling with life. His eyes searching for the one playing the instrument. From his memory, it was one that looked almost like it could be a home decoration.

Having only seen it once before, he couldn't put his finger on the name himself. Though, one with the knowledge might call it the Glass Flute. He saw it, and the person playing it, immediately looking around to see if he could find his sister in its vicinity. Taking deep breaths as if to try and keep calm as he did so. But a careful look at him might tell a practiced eye that he wasn't doing so hot.

Thought it was hard to tell if the heat was getting to him, or if it was not knowing where his sister was.

The crowd was almost impossible to see through, and it was a wonder that he'd even seen the musician. He pointed in that direction, towards the tree more and smiled at Enrick. "Try get to performer. Might no see sister.. sister might see me? There... maybe?" though, the words seemed lackluster. Like he was pulling at strings now.

Maybe it hadn't been a bad idea after all to consider the Glass Tree to be their place to look, since the market seemed a little too crowded for one so young to hang around. At best the stall vendors and shop keeps would've merely shoo'd her off, if she proved problematic with loitering around of course. The tree though was a distinctive landmark many visited and, clearly, remained visible for anyone within the city to see. Thus Enrick followed along in a hurried pace, to keep up with Nalin as he weaved his way through the crowd of locals gathered.

Admittedly he was a tad bit put off from the moment of panic earlier, but Enrick did his best to be understanding in that sort of situation. Maybe it was because he had enough patience, or just that he didn't want this guy earning himself a bad reputation along the way. As little as he could've cared the truth was, that Enrick felt the need to step up for the occasion when it mattered most. Possibly because a life was at stake if left unchecked, or maybe there was just more to the story that found himself interested in. Either way he'd came along this far and wasn't going to back out now. "So she likes plants." Enrick reiterated for the sake of self noting, admittedly he too had a spiritual lineage to nature.

Hazel eyes turned into turquoise while the orange specks remained, his entire head as well as shoulders broken out with sweat. "Damn it's hot." He muttered under his breath, a glance cast back to Nalin when the man checked in on him. "No worries mate, Oi know y' didn't mean nuthin' by it." The fisherman reassured him with a modest smile, his eyes shot back forward to file through the people that they passed. "We'll find 'er lad, just focus on where she could be." He instructed as they continued to move onward, following that though a silence came between them. Maybe because Nalin was focused on looking now, Immortals knew Enrick had been keen to search for her at the moment. "Slender with sliver and gold hair."

How hard would it be to find someone like that? Since hair that light in color wasn't a common trait to find. They came close to the tree and sure enough music could be heard in the air, a busker plying his trade with a glass flute somewhere nearby as they approached the tree. Shade. It was dismal in this heat but invigorating nonetheless, Enrick rested a hand on the tree and looked up it's shaft from the base. Amazing. No matter how many times he'd come here, the sight of something so large always astounded him somehow. He felt a bit of ease in being near the tree, like a part of his heritage spoke to him somehow. Enrick always had such a strong affinity for plants and water, which probably explained why he loved both land and sea dearly.

Green eyes fell back on Nalim as he'd almost forgotten he was here too, looking for the little lost flower the man searched dearly for. The busker seemed quite a distance away, almost on the other side of the tree from the sound of it. Nalim must've figured that his sister would see him there instead, since she obviously wouldn't have been able to hear the music herself. So how did that work necessarily? She was incapable of hearing and mute also? That part remained too vague for Enrick to interpret, regardless the rich green hues searched through the crowd as they moved. Determined to locate Nalim's little sibling in the event they crossed paths, or she was in eye shot while they closed in on the busker nearby.

5th of Suan of the 710th Arc
Suddenly, for Nalin, time seemed to slow. People were walking slower, and the sudden shouts of worry and urgency seemed to bring a new life to his step, he almost didn't notice that the music had stopped. Pushing his way through the crowd. The scream of a woman, the shouts of a few men. Telling people to give someone space. And Nalin couldn't tell if his heart stopped or was going up his throat. He felt sick.

"Let through!" He called out, as he continued to push through. People he was cutting off and running into looking at him with confusion. "Please.. please no." He whispered.

The closer he got, the louder the commotion got. Shout's that they needed water, that someone had passed out. A young girl. "No!" He rushed forward until he finally broke free of the crowd just standing there watching. His eyes widened at he took in the scene. There were men, trying to shoo people away, making a sort of barrier around the form of a woman, a man looking her over. But Nalin's heart dropped. "Lavender! Lavender! Please... Sister! Ser's please! Let through!" He begged one of the men that was trying to break up the crowd.

For a moment the man looked skeptical. That was until he saw the blond hair and similar features, looking between the man taking care of her and Nalin. He gave a nod. "Thanks! Enrick!" He turned around realizing that he might have left the poor man in the dust of the chaos of his wake. "Enrick! Help! Sister here!" He looked around for the man. If he was closer than expected he'd pull Enrick behind the guarding line of men. If not he'd tell the men to let Enrick in when he came.

Hurriedly he ran to his sisters side. Tears in his eyes as he looked her over, she was breathing heavily, her face flushed bright red. His hand hesitantly reached for her cheek. Looking to the man that was looking over her. "Heat?" Nalin asked. The man just nodded as he took out a rag and started wiping at some of the sweat on her brow. Nalin didn't mind. He moved some hair out of her face, looking over her lovingly. "No worry little flower, brother is here." He spoke, words only meant for her. The look in his eyes, there was so much love and care in it. Worry and hope that she was going to be okay.

The other man was still calling out for water but then looked to Nalin.

"She looked bad, asked 'er if she was feelin' aight but.. she didn't answer with nuttin' more than a weak nod."

"Mute... Sister mute. Can't speak." He slowly played his fingers through her silver, gold hair. "Resigns ... head motion all can do when no Common Sign user." He looked over her again. "Fek... Can't be mad at sister when like this." He gave a weak chuckle. Looking up to Enrick, "Thank for help.. Least we got to sister." He said before pulling his sister up and holding her close.

"Ah... Ye shouldn't do that lad. She be needin' space."

Nalin looked at the man for a moment, before kissing her forehead and whispering something in her ear and laying her back down. Resigning to just holding her hand. The crowd around them just finally starting to thin out almost completely. People realizing they had lives to live.

Just as the two were proceeding with their search for the girl a few screams and shouts were raised, and a crowd quickly developed in the direction that Nalim seemed to be heading. Enrick's eyebrows furrowed as he lingered for just a moment to observe, determined to catch up with the blonde man when all seemed clear. It had to be the girl, the sister he searched desperately for. Already Enrick's eyes turned back to the deep turquoise hues once more as he moved in a direction diagonal from Nalim's, more so to grab an essential thing that he imagined crucial in this moment. Water.

"Scuse me!" He murmured as he passed a makeshift table where a few drinks were resting, with careful inspection as to make sure it wasn't alcohol he pressed on through the crowd. It took some weaving and pushing through of course, and he had to hold the mug at head level since he was taller than most. Finally when he reached the gap of ongoing watchers and the men who gave them distance, Enrick slipped in with the help of Nalim telling them he could come through. "Nalim!" He called out as he knelt down next to the man who held the girl in his lap. "She needs water mate." He urged as he lowered the mug's lip down to the girl. The explanation of what happened concurred Enrick's thoughts from before, she was merely mute but not deaf like he was led to believe. If she were capable of hearing others and responding to them, then overall Nalim's calling out to her wasn't pointless after all.

However whether she was deaf or not didn't matter now, the mute girl had fallen ill to a hot flash and needed to cool down. As well as hydration, which could only be done with the water he brought. When he started to lower the girl so she could have space, Enrick then took over to provide his part of the deal. Her head cratered in his rough palms Enrick held the mug at her lips, and only tilted it so that the substance would soak them first. When she seemed responsive enough to accept the drink he tilted it just a centimeter higher, and allowed the water to ease into her mouth while another placed a soaked clothe on her forehead. "No thanks needed mate, we found 'er just like Oi said we would." He pointed out with a soft grin as she seemed a little more lucid now, however still a little out of it due to the fact she'd fallen unconscious.

The crowd started to lessen and those that lingered were soon pleased to know she'd be fine, that she'd merely passed out from heatstroke and would soon feel better. "Thanks mate," Enrick complimented as he gave the confirmation that the other man could leave also, "we'll take it from 'ere t'ough." His turquoise eyes lessened to that of their regular hazel color when he felt normal or indifferent about things, although admittedly flecks of green were seen dotting the iris around his pupil. "Nalim, Oi can carry 'er if ya need me t'. Just lead de way home an' Oi'll bring 'er t'ere safely." He offered with a soft vacant smile cast to Nalim, at this point the fisherman figured he'd came this far so might as well go all the way.
