WELCOME TO UBERRIME CITY
LOCAL INFORMATION
Local Pokémon: Pidove Pichu Elekid Helioptile Pawniard
With cities come pests, and Uberrime has its fair share of annoyingly domesticated Pokémon. Pichu and Elekid form strange social packs, working together to rifle through the bits and pieces left outside of diners and cafes. Helioptile, originally introduced to feed on the massive Pichu infestation, are now just as big of a nuisance, sunning themselves on the stone sidewalks and occasionally snacking on the overweight Pidove that flock to Uberrime. Pawniard trained by the local branch of Rangers work to keep crime - at least, the obvious kind - to a minimum. Uberrime's official bird is Pidove.
The very definition of opulence, Uberrime is packed to the brim with shining metal buildings, bustling shopping centers, and the latest in technology from researchers around the island - and even from other regions. Far and away the most advanced city for miles, Uberrime boasts a multi-story gym, highlighting Steel and Electric-type Pokémon, along with an alternative route through which those less inclined to fight can answer puzzling questions to advance. Those with scientific interests will be right at home, especially researchers, who will no doubt find work in any field they please. Breeders, however, may find themselves up a proverbial stream without a proverbial paddle, as Uberrime's population is inundated with the latest in pure blooded oddities and attractive award-winning Pokémon. Oddly, Uberrime seems to have no discernible culture, nor has it ever...

Choy's mood was only slightly improved by the time he reached his destination in Uberrime. He brought the ATV and trailer around the back of a building in the warehouse district. His crimson eyes shifted Veratrum and he considered switching her out for Cantil, but she was a better actor than the Ditto. "Illusion yourself like one of those back there." The fox Pokemon tilted her head in thought for a moment before leaping out of her chair and slipping under the tarp covering cages. She prowled up one side and back down the other, ignoring the girl in the back, but pausing next to the Furret. Vera gave it smirk before moving on. She slipped back out of the tarp and when she leaped back into her chair, she spun in the air, glowing pink, and a houndour landed in the seat. Choy considered her and nodded. "Good choice."

He pulled himself out of the seat to knock on the door and get them to open the garage door, pulling his phone out while waiting to check that Dowsing app that was suppose to help him find shit. Despite his mask, he could still see his breath through it. It was fucking cold and he was ready to be out of it. He was thankful that Liam seemed to have the good sense not to decorate this place. It wasn't the only one not, so it didn't stand out in that way, but Choy was pretty sure if he saw another grinning Santa Claus, he'd blow it's face off. When the door finally open revealing some grunt, he snarled. "About fucking time." The man spun around to jump back into his idling vehicle, his braid whipping with the motion.

Once in the building, he got back out, followed by Vera disguised as a houndour.

At the familiar rattle of the garage door, Liam gratefully stood from the desk, candy cane sticking out of his mouth. Arceus, he hated paperwork. He didn't have much of it--nothing compared to some--but Boss wanted orderly books, so Liam had to provide for the rings he was responsible for. So on days like today, when he knew he was going to have to wait, he tried to bring some with him and force himself to work on it instead of training with Cal or something else he'd rather do. But that sound meant a shipment and an excuse to walk away. He'd have to sort the Pokemon and evaluate them and hell, he could probably reasonably get out of paperwork for the rest of the day. That put him in a good mood. A glance at his watch showed the new guy was a little late, but not by a lot. Liam was feeling cheerful enough to give him the benefit of the doubt on his first day--traffic could make navigating somewhere new hell in Uberrime, especially in the snow. He temporarily removed the candy cane to whistle as he hit the door; Caliburn assumed his normal position on his trainer's back and Liam popped the Christmas treat back into place as he entered the main warehouse.

Liam emerged from the back room to spot an ATV pulling a trailer. Wait, an ATV? Poor bastard must be frozen solid. The lean figure that climbed out of the vehicle followed by a Houndour didn't look dressed for the weather, either, but he was still moving, so Liam wasn't overly concerned. Liam approached him directly, striding across the space like he owned it (which was effectively, if not technically, true), crossing his arms across his chest as he stopped about a pace away from the stranger and casually reached up to pull the striped candy from his lips before speaking. "Nice to meet you. I'm Pyroar."

The trip was a miserable one. Not only for Aki, but more so for Techu. Who had not stopped smacking herself against the cage door to try and break it. The enraged furret had kept this up for at least a few hours, before she finally stopped herself. She was sore, and hurting. No matter what she did, that door was breaking. Panic rested over the ferret, and she settled down into the cage. Watching the cage Aki was in. Her eyes never left it through the entire bumpy trip.

As for Aki, she was huddled up in the back. Tears had stained the girls cheeks, along with the blood from the busted nose she had gotten when Choy tossed her in here. The tears made her even more worse for wear. She was freezing, shivering in the metal cage. Her outfit was not the best for this weather. Trembling, her hands had turned to side, and she shoved them deep into the pockets of her hoodie. Listening intensely outside, though the roar of the ATV drowned out everything she could possibly hear of where they were going. Having no idea where she was being dragged too.

When they came to a halt, Aki quickly climbed to the front of the cage. Looking around, the trap was still over the trailer. Frowning, this was not good. Where were they? Was she about to die? That thought made the girl pale over, feeling her stomach in knots and her body heaving in panic. Anxiety gripped her, and her breath started to quicken. Heart raced in her ears, and she sat there. Hugging herself as she started to rock back and fourth in the rage. The panic attack hitting the child hard.

It did not go unnoticed by her partner though. Her eyes had never left that cage, and when Aki came into few with that panic attack, it set her off again. Once again, she thrashed about in the cage. Making it shake, rattle, and all kinds of the sort- it was not helping she started to yip and scream within her cage too. Going as far to even try and break the cage by biting the bars. Nothing was working though. Whimpering, she started to pace in circles around the cage. Pitifully, she watched as she couldn't even comfort the mother that hatched her, and raised her.

The distant sounds of Techu having a fuss, and then voices is what brought Aki for a few seconds. Expecting the trap to come off, but it didn't. People? Oh no. What if she was sold off as some type of slave? Every situation that could go wrong her parents told her about flooded her mind again. Her vision started to blur, as she gasped into the icy air. It stung her lungs like ice picks, and soon, she started to cry. Sobbing into her hands as she trembled, slamming herself frantically into the back of the cage. Unable to stop herself from the sobbing panic attack she was suffering through. Trying to force herself to stop, for the mere thought of Choy shooting Techu. But her body and mind was not allowing any logical thought process through the girl right now.

In the time they had stopped outside and got in, one of the Pokemon was making a racket. He could guess which one. He looked down to Vera. "Shut them up." The Houndour nodded and headed around to the back of the trailer. Once in, she paced to the Furret's cage and snarled. "Houn houndour dour ho dour." She indicated Akiko with a toss of her head. The Pokemon may be too enraged and desperate, but the fastest way to get through to her would be by convincing her she would only be hurting her girl.

Choy's crimson gaze fell on Liam the moment he exited the office and he just barely managed to keep his eye from twitching. The man--was he sucking a Arceus-damned candy cane?--was tall, broad, handsome, and had a long flowing mane of hair. Fucking pretty, muscle guy. Pick one, dammit. Choy was lean, average height, and would never possess the musculature of the statue approaching him--even if Z would allow him to work out more. He wasn't scrawny, but his strength was tightly coiled around his limbs. The Poacher also knew he was capable of being 'pretty,' he just didn't care enough to put fourth the effort. Whatever favors his face and hair did for him, his mouth ruined pretty quickly, so what was the point? He internal prickliness eased when the man didn't comment on him being late, but just introduced himself. "Choy. Pleasure's all yours. I've had a shit-show of a trip." He turned to walk to the trailer. "Your guy's replacement flaked, so I got that to deal with when I get back. In addition to other shit..."

He could hear the girl as he drew closer and he slammed a fist into the nearest cage, temper spiking. "Knock it off." He snapped. Once to the back, he untied the tarp from the back half of the trailer and pulled it back, sending some clumps of clinging snow to the warehouse floor. It wasn't completely off, so the girl in the front was still in shadow, though not completely hidden. He wasn't trying to hide her, Pyroar wanted the Pokemon, not that nosy brat. The Houndour that had existed with him was sitting in front of one of the cages holding a very angry Furret. Choy snatched a clipboard from its place to present the paperwork to maned man.

Liam raised an eyebrow as the man introduced himself. He knew that name. "Choy? Z's Choy? Isn't this a little beneath your pay grade?" He knew the name as the go-to poacher and hand-dirtier for Azazel's second in command--one of his most trusted minions. He seemed too far up the food chain to be sitting in holiday traffic in the Uberrime cold. "That sucks about the new guy." Liam's tone was casual. He didn't feel any guilt over the matter--he hadn't hired the guy. He popped the candy cane back into his mouth to take the clipboard from Choy, flipping over the list. That Furret was one seriously pissed off Pokemon. He checked the list to see where it came from...but it wasn't on the list?

Fuck.

He hated paperwork fuck ups. He could feel a headache starting already.

He clenched his teeth on the hard candy stick in his mouth and stepped closer to the trailer to get a look at the rest of the haul. Might as well check the rest against the list and see just how far this mess went. When he reached the front of the trailer he heard, under the Furret's shrieks and growls, a repetitive, desperate sound. Was that sobbing? It was muffled, but...Liam stretched out a hand and grabbed the tarp, jerking it fully off of the cages and revealing the girl, holding herself and rocking. She couldn't have been more than 13. She was under-dressed for the Uberrime weather and was shaking; though that was probably as much from terror as the freezing temperatures.

Oh sweet Jynx tits. This was turning into a really fucking bad day.

He turned slowly on Choy, muscles tensing and body instinctively preparing for the danger that child represented. He pulled the candy cane out of his mouth and pointed at the kid. "What the actual fuck is this, Choy?"

When Vera got closer to Techu, the furret only got even more pissed at the mere sight of her. She knew that wasn't a new pokemon, it was that damned fox. "Furret, furret!" Techu was not quietening down anytime soon. Not with Aki over there, having a panic attack. The ferret was terrified she would make self sick, pass out, or somehow injure herself during this. Clawing at the bars as she started to pace her cage angrily. Then she looked up to Liam, who approached Aki. Yipping and snarling towards him defensively.


Aki however, kept in the back of her cage. Trembling as she sat there sobbing loudly, and when Choy slammed his fist now, she jerked out of her trance. Snapping her head up in time to actually hear Techu speak. Her eyes went wide, and she crawled to the front of her cage. Staring at her frantic pokemon, she reached through the bars for her. Not that she could reach her, but maybe comfort her friend who was in as much distress as her.

When the trap was pulled back, and there was Liam, Aki flinched and jerked her hand back into the cage. Staring at him, he would see the blood over her face. Wait a minute. Was that a candy cane? How sick were these people? Having candy canes, traveling through the snow and the Christmas lights. It made her feel sick. She should be home with her family. Gulping, she had no way of an escape. Not with two of them now.

Though as he seemed to get angry towards Choy, it brought Aki back to the front of her cage. The slightest bit of hope that meant she could get let go? But then it dawned on her that was not going to be the case. They would probably shoot her here on the spot. The color drained from her face of that realization, and she quickly moved back farther in the cage. Almost accepting her face, she pulled her knees to her chest. All she could wait for her ill-fate.

Veratrum rolled her eyes at the Furret. It was the normal type's fault in the first place. If she had just listened when her human said to run instead of freaking out all over the place. She opened her mouth to respond when Choy pulled back the first half of the tarp. Her illusioned form turned toward the two men and she almost snorted at seeing the Liam, sucking on a candy cane. Z would have had some fun with that, but it was Choy here now and she knew the poacher didn't care for 'buff, pretty boys.' He claimed he wasn't interested in men, but sometimes his reaction to ones like Liam made her wonder if he was slightly homophobic. Or more, didn't want to be treated how he treated the workers in the brothels? Not that he was cruel, he just wasn't overly kind.

While Pyroar compared the paperwork to the stock, Choy kicked some of the snow from the trailer tires to double check the snow chains. "Oh, the Furret's not yours." He added as an after thought when the pissed off weasel slammed into the bars again. At Pyroar's question--a definite hard edge to it that sent warning signals down his spine--the poacher raised his crimson eyes to see what he was talking about. The maned man was standing next to the front of the trailer, tarp all the way back to reveal the bloodied, trembling girl. "What the fuck does it look like?" He retorted, trying to keep his temper from flaring. "Also not yours. So don't worry your pretty little head about it." He went back to adjusting the chain, grumbling at the awkwardness of mostly being down to one hand after cutting it earlier. He'd had time to wrap it more formally while sitting in holiday traffic, but it still ached when he flexed his hand.

Liam growled at the flippant response. "You brought her here, and that makes her my fucking problem! Seriously, dumbass, what the fuck were you thinking pulling this kind of shit down on my operation?" This dick should be smarter than this, and Z was going to hear about it as soon as Liam was done mopping up the mess.

Not even waiting for Choy's response, he whistled sharply and waved a man over from across the warehouse. "Start scrubbing now. Get someone to grab a van and move the Pokemon on this trailer to..." he glanced at the bloodied kid and changed tack. "Another site. I'll text you. Leave the Furret and the kid. Let's get it clean and do it fast."

The guy took off without so much as a "yes, sir" and Liam turned back to Choy. He pointed again at the poacher, totally oblivious to the candy cane still clutched in his fingers like some absurd chalkboard pointer. "You," his oddly festive prop swung around to point at the girl in the cage, "are gonna take this girl into the city and let her go. I am not gonna have some kinda missing kid bullshit riling the place up. It's really fucking bad for business."

When Choy implied that Aki was 'his' she flinched. That was not a pleasing thought to the child. However, Aki heard the candy cane man get angry. Her brow arched, and she looked confused. A spark of hope kick started her heart, and she instantly came back into few of the two men. Looking between them as they spoke about her. Seeing candy land get angry and say this was bad, and then told Choy to release her. Greene yes grew huge, and she looked towards Techu's cage, maybe they could actually get out?

Techu had finally quieten down when Liam had spoke of making Choy release Aki. That was good. If Aki got out, that's all that mattered to the ferret. Looking over as her trainer looked at her with hopeful eyes. It almost hurt to see her like that. "Fur, furret." Again, the thought she could actually now understand the ferret pokemon caught Aki off guard. Nodding her head, sh wasn't going to leave without Techu either, or at least, she wasn't without some hell of more fight later.

Liam indirectly was putting some confidence in the girl. If she could just get out of here, she would know exactly what to do. Her brother. Rento would come in guns blazing, riding through the snow like a mad man to get them. The thought brought a smirk to the child, and she covered her mouth to stop from snickering at that image. Though now Aki was paying a lot more close attention to them. She could sketch them out to the cops, too. It would be difficult, but she would be able to get a very basic image of how these two looked.

Candy mountain man, and flaming red head. How hard could that be to draw for someone?

Choy's crimson gaze slid from the snow chain to find and lock on Pyroar across the trailer from him at his growling response. Who the fuck was he calling a dumbass? He was no longer struggling against his initial dislike for this man--Z's feelings of brotherhood be damned. His mouth stretched in to sneer, tugging at the fabric of his mask. "Don't get your panties in a twist." His voice taut with suppressed irritation, but the ring leader was already calling someone over to start scrubbing the place. For fuck's sake.

When Pyroar addressed him again, jabbing that Arceus-damned candy cane at him, Choy stood to his full height, rolling his shoulders. He was a big and impressive as this schmuck, but he would not be cowed by this wanna-be king of the pits. He rotated his head, causing his neck to pop audibly. "I don't take my orders from you, Pyroar." He stated in a low, edged tone. His gaze flicked to the girl, who seemed to be coming out of her panicking state and was looking at them a bit too closely...and looking smug about it. He grabbed the tarp and whipped it forward, plunging her back into partial darkness. "You need to relax. No one knows she's here and no one will know she was here. The sooner we finish up, the sooner I'll get her out of your ridiculous amount of hair."

Either Vera was feeling the tension more than Choy was, or he was ignoring it. The illusioned Pokemon found herself watching the large fighter carefully, ready to jump in if Choy needed it. It was interesting to pair this snarling man with the same one who had been laughing and grinning with Z and Barrett just a week or so previously....

Internally, Liam approved of Choy's covering the girl back up. He had noticed her studying them both, and it made the hair on the back of his neck stand up. He gladly redirected that creeping cold in the pit of his stomach into anger--anger that he directed at the target in front of him. Who did this shit think he was? And trying to crack on his hair of all things, when he sported some braid down past his ass? What a stupid little prick. He took two steps along the side of the trailer. Two calculated steps, designed to show the other man that while he wasn't hurting him yet, he was also willing to if pushed.

Liam's voice was not raised, but was under tight control, cold and clear as the ice in his eyes.
"Listen to me you pansy-ass rat catcher, today you are working for me. I make the calls here. You walked into my kingdom, you shit-swilling upstart; you do what I fucking tell you or you pay whatever goddamn price I decide. Z can find a new errand boy." Cal floated up and away from Liam's back, sash flaring out threateningly and drifting slightly in Choy's direction. "So get your scrawny ass back in that driver's seat, Rapunzel, and you and your ridiculous hair do as you're fucking told. The girl gets let go in one goddamn piece, or I disappoint my beloved brother. Are we clear?"

Liam saw the van in place to transfer the Pokemon from the trailer. There was even a garage door partially up further down the space, eddies of snow blowing in, waiting for the van to be ready to leave. But his guys hung back, afraid to come too close to the raging Pyroar or the stranger pushing his buttons. "Now sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up and stay the hell out of the way while my guys get this cargo moved so you can get the fuck out of my sight and get your goddamn job done, poacher-boy."

He looked away from Choy dismissively, without a second thought, and met a steady dark gaze by the van. "Get them moved. Offload the Furret but don't take it. Be careful for Arceus' sake, that thing is pissed."

Tension somewhat vented, Liam returned the candy cane to his mouth and crossed his arms, watching carefully.

Aki kept studying the two, and they way they were fighting. They sounded like a pair of brothers, which instantly put her mind to back home. The last time she saw them, they were both in hideous Christmas sweaters, fighting over who gets the last gingerbread cookie. Then also the warning her brother Rento gave when she left 'Don't go poking your nose where it doesn't belong.' Well she sure as hell did not listen. Why did she think this was a good idea? Though as the two kept getting heated, and she was suddenly plunged right back into the dark.

Mentally huffing, at least she had gotten a good luck at them. It would not be hard to remember that bloody candy cane for sure. It however did now stop her from listening to them bicker back and fourth, and the moment Liam called Choy Rapunzel- there was a snort and a giggle from the girl. She instantly covered her mouth and scooted to the back of the cage again. If they heard her, it would be mostly likely Choy who tries to either hit her or rattle the cage.

Though at the mention of no one knew she was gone, that was a lie. The trainers in the snow had saw him take her. Not that she knew who they were- or even if they were from Campana. However, her parents would find out easily the moment it was reported to the cops. Arceus knows her brother would be on case in zero seconds flat. Biting her lip, did they know? They had to know, right? That fear started to sink in a little, it was possible they did not.

Even at the mention of hem letting her go, Techu looked up. To be honest, she was not expecting to get let go. She only wanted Aki to be free, even if it meant she got dragged off to Mew knows where. Perking her ears to Aki snoring, the furret gave her a hard look. Though she understood why she found humor in it. Her brothers got heated like this at times, but never this foul mouthed. Though she noticed how Aki's mood dropped lower after the fear of Choy going to come over here and yell or hit her. She must have over thought something again.

Shaking her head, she glanced towards the ready to attack fake houndour and snorted towards her, getting the biggest, smuggest, shit eating grin over her face. Techu relished in the fact that Choy was getting into it, and told off, by Liam. Honestly she hoped Liam punched him square in the nose.

With his crimson eyes still on Pyroar, he saw practically saw the ice chips form in the man's frigid gaze. It wasn't until that moment that he sensed the same possible danger that Veratrum had already picked up on. His trigger finger twitched, but he closed it into a fist. He could not shoot one of Azazel's favorites, even if Z was a favorite as well. Internally, Z found this display quite impressive and a bit surprising from the man who had been all big grins and brotherly affection last time he saw him. Then again, that was Z he saw, not Choy.

Choy, on the other end of the spectrum, was pissed, but baffled. He'd never been spoken to like this before. His immediate instinct was to shoot the man in the knee--that's what he would have done in Piscari--but that wouldn't work here. Z found himself having to pull back on the short-tempered reigns. The Zorua-turned-Houndour stepped between her human and the dual type, hackles raised, teeth bared, and tendrils of smoke coming from her clenched muzzle. He stood straighter and stepped up next to the canine, carefully laying a hand on her back so it wouldn't fall through the illusion. "You're real fucking lucky that you're one of father's favorites, Pyroar." He growled, the touch on his Pokemon making her own snarling drop to a low tone.

He stalked around the back of the trailer and headed up to the RTV, ensuring that he passed the large man--couldn't have it look like he was avoiding getting too close. At least his hair was confined and not floating around like some hobo. His teeth ground as the insults--even if a very small part of him, that he told to shut the fuck up, was impressed with his choice of words. He would get him back, that he swore. THEN he might consider making nice. Maybe. After shoving the candy cane where the sun didn't shine. The Houndour followed the poacher, jumping back into the passenger seat before Choy did as he was told, knocking snow off of the mirror and onto Pyroar's warehouse floor. The most he could do for now was not sulk like he wanted to, dignity wasn't as important to him as Z, but there wasn't much more he could salvage from this. Fortunately for Aki, the already ticked off man did not hear her chortling.

Liam hid his surprise when the poacher referred to Azazel as "father." Liam knew he was technically a worshiper, but he hadn't thought he was close enough to give the god that title of affection. He completely ignored the threatening Houndour, keeping his eyes calmly settled on Choy as the pair passed him to return to the ATV. He had to admit, the guy had some balls, passing right by him like that. He admired that. Guy might be a prick, but he had pride--and also some tiny portion of goddamn sense, to back the hell down.

Pyroar's temper cooled as he watched his guys move the cages carefully into the van. He pulled out his phone and sent the driver a quick text, the man glancing over and nodding in acknowledgement. The seasoned men were not easily intimidated by Pokemon, but they weren't stupid either--they were extremely careful as they pulled Techu's cage off of the trailer, so that no part of their bodies were in the Furret's reach at any time. They set it carefully on a dolly designed to move cages from place to place before nodding to Liam and moving off to help with the rest of the cleanup. Liam himself secured the loose tarp around the lone occupied cage still on the trailer, careful to be sure there were no gaps to let the biting wind in.

He then walked up to the driver's side where Choy sat, sullen, pulling his quickly shortening stick of Christmas candy out of his mouth as he went.. "You're clear." His tone was perfectly neutral, not seeking to gloat or further antagonize the man. After all, he still had the girl he could take his temper out on if he wanted. He walked away toward the offices, but paused before going and turned to watch the garage door leading out into the snowy day.

What were they going to do with Techu? Aki watched as they moved her cage and panic settled back in. What if she never found her again? What if they threw her into pit fighting? Or just killed her? Gripping the bars of the snow frozen bars, she started to open her mouth. But stopped. She was getting let go, or hoped she was. Techu could find her, and maybe she could find someone to help her? If Choy didn't shoot her anyways, that was. That uncertainty did not stop her from feeling sick.

Why couldn't candy cane come with them? To make sure Choy just didn't blow her head off? Not that Liam was 'good' in Akiko's book, either. They were both terrifying people she wanted to be as far away from as humanly possible. She knew Choy was pissed off due to the mountain of a man, and that just made her feel like he made it worse for her. Thanks, goldilocks.

As for Techu, the men were smart to keep their fingers or anything out of the cage. They probably would have lost them. Snarling and hissing as they moved her off the trailer. Deep down, she knew she was probably not going to get free with Aki. Though that did not matter to her, she just wanted her trainer safe, and the possibility that was happening, she would deal wit this. It wouldn't stop her from looking like a feral pokemon to scare these men, though.

Choy remained slouched in the driver's seat, one steel-toed boot up on the dash as the men did as Pyroar ordered. The man looked like he was just stewing in his own angry juices, but he was listening carefully to everything around him. He was half disappointed, half relieved that the Furret didn't managed to take any fingers. It would have been satisfying to a degree, but likely just get the pit fighter even more pissed and back in his face. The poacher couldn't guarantee he would be able to resist shooting him a second time if that happened.

When he heard the larger man's approached boot falls, his crimson eyes shifted to the side to get the man within his sight. That same part of him that was suppose to be quiet was grateful for the lack of posturing or gloating over Choy stepping down. He really didn't feel like getting in a fight with someone he was loathed to admit could wipe the floor with him--Z was even less pleased with the possibility. He sighed through his nose, trying to let go of the remaining irritation. At his clear command, he looked back at his trailer in consideration. Maybe he should knock the brat out, but it seemed she was content to be quiet for the moment and he didn't want to risk Pyroar running any more interference. That settled, he turned the engine over, the RTV roaring to life. Back into the fucking cold.

Without so much of another look at the long-haired ring leader, he pulled his much lighter load around and disappeared out the bay doors and back into the obnoxiously decorated city.
