It was just one of those frigid days in Acerbus Umbra that made one want to do nothing but go back to bed and hope the cold weather would stop. With the sun not shining and the normal freezing temperature, most people in the castle didn’t feel like doing much outside. For four Verfall members, they were feeling the same way. Settled down by the fireplace in the main hall were Holly Skies, Renji Toshiro, Sakura Baigon, and Nuala Delmy, along with Holly’s companion, Flick. Per usual, Renji was up on his feet, unable to sit comfortably in the plush chairs that were set up by the fireplace.
“Renji, you should calm down,” Holly chuckled as he paced back and forth. “Why not share a story like we did when we were younger?” The Olisthir brought her knees to her chest and wrapped her arms around her legs. A soft orange aura surrounded her hands as she used her fire manipulation magic to warm herself up.
“Yeah! Tell the one about the time you went to Deliciae and told people you were from Acerbus Umbra!” Nuala added, sitting in one of the chairs farther away from the fire.
“Right,” Renji laughed, remembering what had happened when he had done that. “The people freaked out and thought I was going to rob them or something. Someone ran and got a couple guards to ‘stop’ me. Thankfully, Sakura explained that I was not going to do anything but get some food.” He smiled at the other Guard Captain. She seemed about ready to doze off as she always did. Renji was obviously not surprised by it. Turning back to Holly, he questioned, “How about you tell us what Aria’s up to. I haven’t seen her in a couple of days.”
“Oh! I completely forgot to tell you guys, didn’t I?” Holly asked which Renji nodded to answer. The shapeshifter continued, “Aria’s went on a trip to Kokoro village. Apparently, there are some special herbs that she’s getting there. She said she’d be gone for a few weeks. I suppose I should tell Countess Roxanna...”
