The chance to do good...?

In a trance-like meditative state, Chen comtemplates the evening to come... Rescuing a damsel in distress - this is more like the heroism he read about back at the monastery! At first he was hesitant in agreeing to undertake this task: How did they know that the girl really wanted to leave?! The strange little... man(?)... that told them the original story certainly did not appear entirely trustworthy...

Eventually, though, it seemed that the girl was indeed being held against her will - likely through means magical which would make her appear happy. Saving her would be hard - very hard - but restoring her faculties and returning her to her true family would be worth it in the end.

Perhaps this would be a new start for his friends also. They may be mercenaries for the most part, but surely they also have it in them to be heroes...?

Attending a regal Ball would also be an exciting new experience for himself, but he'd be sure not to allow the inevitable decadence of such an event to undermine his moralistic teachings...

Mendez lies in his bed snoring loadly, his winning lying in a scattered heap on the floor.

Eolar is looking out of the window of his small chamber. His students didn't come back yet and he slowly doubts his decision to send them on this mission.
Hopefully nothing happened to them....
