Their luck seemed to be swinging back and forth during that job. It looked surprisingly easy at first, just posing as a bodyguard for some young noble during an exchange for his kidnapped fiancee for a ransom. However, things got more complicated when it turned out that their employer, Andrew Lockhart hired another person. An intolerable bounty hunter named Shinsei, who was getting on Eric's nerves since they met. By a turn of events, both the Wolves and Shinsei lost their contract and got stuck together on their ship.
Well, to be more precise, the last part was Agnes's fault. If not for her playful nature, Eric would have left the red guy behind or ordered Martin to shoot him. Speaking of her, Agnes took Shinsei into her cabin for several hours, to treat the wounds which he received during the short but intense fights with Eric and Martin respectively.
When they finally finished, the Wolf King called all of his people Shinsei included on the main deck.
"Alright, as most of you probably noticed, our ship is still heading towards the Cinna Island, despite losing the contract. The reason is, that during my conversation with our previous employer I got a pretty good idea of where the kidnapped lady will be held. So, we are going to find her kidnappers, take them down and exchange her for the ransom ourselves."
"Before you start arguing, the ransom is 100 000 000 Beli, so if we succeed, each one of you will walk from it when 10 million in the pocket."
He looked at Shinsei.
"Yes, you included."
The Wolf King growled, which started some grumbling among his men.
"Of course, if some of you think that it's too risky to step over the line this much and the money isn't worth the risk of becoming wanted, you can always wait for the rest of us in the city. But in that case, you will get only your part of the advanced payment, which is 500 000 Beli. So, who is going into it with me?"
The upper deck erupted in a cheerful roar from the Wolves. Eric grinned, obviously ignoring Shinsei's opinion on this matter.
"Alright, any questions?"
