Outside the sky was turning dark, as if an ink droplet had been spilt in the perfect water sky. Shadows flocked in alleys and at corners, the air turned quiet. Except for one spot in the middle of it all, that never went silent, no matter what. The pub. Light from inside reached out on the street from the windows and from the cracks in the door, while sounds of voices made the whole street feel alive.

Inside, the voice of a bard vibrated warmly, alongside with his masterful playing of the lute. Hugo leaned on the bar, listening to the melody with his eyes growing heavy. The atmosphere at the small pub was great and all, but it had been a long day, and playing bartender was not as easy as he expected. Rush hour was drawing to its apex soon, but he felt like he hardly had the energy to continue. Shaking his head, the boy got up and stretched his back, allowing a small yawn escape his mouth before he left the bar and went to tend to the customers. He gathered what remained of the dinner of an NPC, which dropped coins in his palm, coins that instantly vanished as soon as they were supposed to make contact with his skin. He nodded politely and watched the man leave the bar.

His attention was caught by another person, entering the small, mutton-smelling building. He courteously made his way towards them and invited them towards a table. With a quick glance, he observed the player tag above their heads, which meant they must have been a real person, just like him. After the person was seated, the off-duty lancer clasped his hands behind his back and gave them a wide grin. "Welcome to the Watcher's Pub, what can I get you in this lovely night?"

After a long day Claire thought that there would be nothing better to do besides getting a drink at the Watchers Pub. The cleric had been held up, there seemed to be a long wait just to get a table. She figured it was around rush-hour so she didn't really mind waiting. As time passed Claire slowly managed to get to the front of the line to get seated. She loved the vibe of the Watchers Pub, the music always made it feel like a cafe. She loved the smell when she walked in, and she loved all the commotion NPC'S were causing by chatting.

Claire felt like the Watchers Pub would be a very nice in the real world, she would come every day just to eat a meal. When a server had offered a table Claire nodded and smiled, quickly following the waiter. She did notice his player tag so she hoped that she could get to know him a little bit. "I'd like some Mutton" She replied as she sat down in her seat.

"Good choice." replied Hugo with a polite smile before making his way towards the back of the pub, into the small, rustic kitchen, where an NPC prepared the mutton which rottated lazily above the fireplace. The lancer returned with a large place of steaming meat, fancily decorated with greens. It looked so delicious, and the boy envied this girl for getting to have a bite of that goodness. With a swift check to see whether anyone else needed assisting, he sat down on the chair oppositte of hers, watching her from across the tabel.

"Well, nice to mee you, Claire." he smiled, taking a closer look at her player tag. He made out her class and name, which, for this game, was all you needed to know, mostly. It was nice to take a break from the work, even if her was still eyeing the pub for new customers, but he could sit down and talk to this girl between jobs, at least.

As she waited she glanced at the board, seeing if there were any quests she could tackle on and get some easy bits. She didn't notice anything and as soon as she turned her food had been brought to her by the waiter. Her eyes sparkled when she first noticed it, good thing she was hungry. The cleric had grabbed her knife and fork and began to slice it into small pieces and eating them.

She chewed slowly as all the flavor's of the mutton danced in her mouth, her tastebuds were very pleased with the food. Claire didn't mind that Hugo had sat across from her she figured that he wanted to talk and get to know her. The cleric glanced up from her meal as Hugo spoke, she gulped down her food and smiled. "You as well, Hugo" Claire replied, she wondered if he was on a break? The number of customers only seemed to increase as rush hour drew nearer. "Busy night?" She asked him as she took another bite of her meal.

Hugo patiently looked around the pub, giving the cleric time to eat her food comfortably. He could tell that he wasn't really disturbing her, which was nice, but the boy still felt like keeping a polite distance from the stranger. He got up and made his way towards another table as the cleric was eating, taking the order of two NPCs who had just arrived. The boy was pretty surprised and impressed that the AI had been programmed to automatically find themselves a suitable table. They ordered quick and simple, and the bartender quickly made his way into the kitchen and brought back the couple the food they had ordered.

He bounced back to the player's table, having finished his task, and sat back down. The bard had begun a new song, a humorous tale. Listening to the lyrics, the boy snorted a few times to their clever word-plays and twists. The bard was a really skilled man, and Hugo wondered who had voice-acted him and sang those funny melodies for such a grim project that kidnapped children. But it did not matter now, at least. "I get that you like the food?" he asked Claire with a grin, turning back to face her.

She didn't mind as Hugo left, he was working after all but it was nice to chat. The song was delightful as she continued to eat she looked and watched Hugo as he helped some NPCs. Claire glanced around the pub she didn't see other player's so these were all NPCs that were put into the game. The cleric figured that most of the players had gone to the second level while as she.. was still stuck on the First level. Sighing she wiped her mouth off with a napkin and glanced towards Hugo as he asked her a question. The cleric nodded and smiled happily. "Yes the meal was delightful, thank you." She replied and placed all her utensils on her plate for him to take away.

Hugo smiled softly and got up to gather the dirty dishes. "Such manners." he smiled as he picked up the plate and cutlery and quickly disposed of them in the back of the pub. She washed the grease from the plates off his hands in a bucket of cool water before making his way back in the front room of the bar and slid back into his chair. Now that the cleric had finished her meal, they could chat freely, except when he had to complete a job. "How's your experience been so far?" he asked and scratched the back of his neck with a big yawn.

She smiled as he complimented her and waited for him to return when he left. She assumed that he would be able to chat a little more since there seemed to be more workers during rush hour but he probably still needed to work. As he asked for her experiences the cleric frowned, she was so stupid to try and take on the gatekeeper alone and now she was stuck here. With a sigh the Cleric answered "Well.. I lost to the first gatekeeper" Claire said with a small chuckle as she leaned back onto her chair. "So its been a little tough ever since, though Im trying to earn more bits so I could battle him again."

Hugo arched his eyebrows but didn't pressure her to talk. She was lucky to be alive, that was something to be grateful for. If not, the girl could've easily lost a life so early on. And if she planned to be in front and to reach the levels fast, it would have been risky farther on, he guessed. But it was important she stayed focused and kept a clear head. The boy looked around to see a couple of NPCs filling out of the bar. No one had yet come to take their place, so he didn't hurry to clean their table as usual. He could see the golden coins they had left behind sparkling on the table. "Good you are alright, I suppose." he shoot back as his dark-colored eyes moved over the scenery beyond them. Their spot was located well near on of the corners, which was a good place at from where he could look over the pub away from the counter.
