Aerom dived deep into thinking as he saw the individual's lack of enthusiasm in his suggestion. He replied slowly, "I could eliminate all of you and switch allegiance to the other gang, which would definitely change the course of events dramatically. However, for the sake of peace and to deepen my relationships, I want to avoid such carnage and instead seek to broaden my circle of loyal colleagues."

Aerom, firm in his resolve, expressed his stance with conviction, stating, "The opportunity I present to you all is one that promises mutual benefit - a scenario where each outcome, whether victorious or facing defeat, ensures a position of power for all involved, particularly in light of my short-term residence in this vicinity." In an effort to encourage unity and understanding, he proposed, "Allow me to be guided to your supervisor for a talk that may result in a satisfactory outcome. If excitement is insufficient, I am willing to engage directly with your boss, leading our conversation in a more diplomatic direction that could pave the way for an acceptable conclusion that benefits all parties concerned."
Akai, was a bit disgruntled by this reply. His tone and diplomatic approach and cockiness in his own abilities struck a very deep nerve. He was about to burst his casket... However, he inhaled and exhaled letting his anger to subside instead of boil over for his situation was disadvantageous. Any wrong turns could, as Aerom confidently state, turn to fate in which Aerom kills them all. He didn't want Iris to die, Akai didn't fancy the taste of death either; he was still young.

He let off an exasperated sigh, he reached into his pocket and plucked a cigarette from his stash he had hidden away. He retrieved his lighter and he lit the tip. He puffed, he drooped and sighed once more. He let off a puff of smoke, he plunged his hands into his pockets and gave him a lightly annoyed reply as he turned away to lead the way... "Follow me."

Where they were headed was nothing discrete to anyone on the island. Their next destination was... Leiden, HQ however before that. Aerom had to release Iris, "I won't go on without a secured sense of peace between both of our units. Since this is the option you have chosen and one that I've, reluctantly, agreed to... Give me Iris without any strings attached and I'll ensure she doesn't bite your hand too hard."

Had Aerom chose to comply, they'd advance to the HQ in which Iris and Akai have a silent back and forth; an intense argument and discussion on the turn of events.
They came upon Leiden, HQ. Slowly approaching it from a distance, Akai led the group. They were bound to make amends in what way they could but the risk is too great to sacrifice lives needlessly.

After establishing an agreement with the other man, Aerom and his allies took the initiative to accompany him to their headquarters. "Alright, let's go," Aerom said in a forceful tone, demonstrating his readiness and commitment. This vital decision marked the start of their trip to the exact location they had in mind.

Aerom answered to the individual's request by saying, "I am willing to release your companion; however, any attempt to flee or launch an attack will result in unfavourable consequences," as he advised them in a forceful tone. Aerom's statements conveyed a feeling of gravitas, emphasizing that the situation required a careful balance of trust and responsibility from both parties concerned. Understanding the gravity of the situation, he emphasized the significance of mutual respect and obedience to prevent escalating tensions further.

As he stared firmly at the assembled crowd, his mannerisms displayed a mix of power and empathy, embodying a leader seeking a peaceful conclusion in the middle of chaos. In a determined move, Aerom then signalled to the troops known as "paras" to begin the process of liberating the young girl, demonstrating his dedication to resolving the stressful situation. The exchange not only demonstrated Aerom's firm stance on the issue, but it also served as a poignant reminder that cooperation and dedication to a single goal were critical in defusing dangerous situations. The decision to release the girl, while a huge step toward healing, was accompanied by the weight of potential consequences and the need for continuing care in managing the complicated forces at work.


The group members' collective togetherness demonstrated a strong sense of preparedness and anticipation for the voyage ahead. Each member of the group moved forth with a feeling of purpose and commitment, demonstrating perseverance and fortitude in the face of the hardships that lay ahead. With each step, they left a trail of determination and unity, marking their journey with a tale of bravery and endurance. They marched forth together, ready to meet whatever challenges arose, unified in their mission, and resolved to triumph at the end of their journey.

As they continued through the strange surroundings, their gaze was drawn to a peculiar structure that stood out from the architecture of the surrounding buildings. This edifice, which stood out strongly, piqued Aerom's interest, prompting him to consider it as the central hub of the strange gang they were tracking. Sensing the gravity of the situation and the potential danger ahead, Aerom subtly motioned to his companions, a silent but powerful cue that urged them to increase their vigilance and readiness for any unforeseen threats that might arise as they approached their final destination.

The air was taut with suspense as they approached, their footsteps echoing in the calm atmosphere, each member of the party ready to respond at the first sign of danger. This vital juncture, fraught with uncertainty and surprise, required the companions to demonstrate unity and preparedness, a silent pledge that they would face whatever challenges were ahead together and emerge victorious. Their collective determination stiffened as they closed the gap, the imminent clash serving as a silent reminder of the gravity of their mission.

"This guy's a nut... I promised no monkey business regardless of whether or not you snarl at me. Even with Iris now following I can't believe that's his reassurance to our compliance. I hope ??? is willing to fight him on our behalf, I risked some heavy penalties following through with this peaceable union." Mentally commentated Akai, it swiftly turned into a brief rumination as his anxiety piled on the weight of his decisions. They traversed through the vast canopy of intricately built infrastructure, it wasn't perfect but it was maintained enough to give the illusion of a higher standard of living. Promoting the public image that Leidenschaftlich shared to the world.

The group had a large ways to go until they'd have conquered this territory, they still had to face those who governed through both the shadows and the public's naked eyes. The HQ peered at them from above, and even higher peered someone even greater! His suit's coat flowed in the wind as it precariously balanced atop his shoulders, with a sword in hand he seemed prepared for battle...

FWOOOOOOMMM-CRASH!!!
A blade of air ripped through the earth halting the group collectively, this was no feeble ambush or attack. Since Akai lead the way, at the base of his feet, was deep crevice carved through the solid rock via the attack. The man that stood atop the building seemed to have moved; he shifted in motions and then... Leapt down from atop the building!

"Akai...." Uttered the man as he approached them, he seemed a bit upset however Akai kept a calm composure. Akai stood his ground with a cigarette kept alit between his lips. He slowly reached and grabbed it, he pulled and exhaled a translucent puff of smog. The man approached slowly, having each his steps echo as the tension between the groups sky-rocketed. Iris stood in silence and lowered her head, she had nothing to say or add to the situation as it had unfolded before their very eyes.

"...Why did you bring outsiders harboring ill intentions?"

Despite their prior planning, everyone was taken aback when an unexpected assault occurred. The perplexing nature of the assault had a dramatic effect on the atmosphere, shrouding the place in a cloud of doubt and anxiety. An eerie silence fell over the gathering, broken only by the gentle rustle of leaves in the breeze, adding to the tension that hung heavy in the air.

"Akai...." Uttered the man as he approached them, he seemed a bit upset however Akai kept a calm composure. Akai stood his ground with a cigarette kept alit between his lips. He slowly reached and grabbed it, he pulled and exhaled a translucent puff of smog. The man approached slowly, having each his steps echo as the tension between the groups sky-rocketed. Iris stood in silence and lowered her head, she had nothing to say or add to the situation as it had unfolded before their very eyes.

"...Why did you bring outsiders harboring ill intentions?"

As the pandemonium developed in a gripping display of suspense, a well-dressed gentleman effortlessly descended from the towering structure, projecting an air of elegance and authority that caught the attention of those gathered below. The atmosphere crackled with awe and intrigue as he approached the waiting crowd. Onlookers' faces, caught in rapt attention, gradually shifted as emotions flickered across their features, creating a momentary dance of astonishment and adoration. It was a moment flavoured with the palpable intensity of long-awaited rendezvous, a meeting full with meaning and opportunity.

Aerom, ever the acute observer, couldn't help but ponder aloud the scene developing in front of him, wondering who the distinguished figure approaching was. "This," he speculated, "could very well be Gilbert, the leader they have been anticipatively waiting to meet." And as the man of mystery approached, his presence appeared to weave a spell over the assembly, braided with strands of intrigue, respect, and terror. It was a moment that hung in the air, full of unanswered questions and truths, on the verge of revelation.

When questioned, Aerom replied elegantly, "I am willing to address that query." Aerom highlighted the strategic nature of their mission, saying, "My purpose in coming here was to build alliances and engage in friendly combat to assess your capabilities." Aerom revealed the deliberate method behind their appearance, stating, "Since they were defeated by us, their only option was to summon us to this location." This excellent explanation not only illuminates the circumstances underlying Aerom's entrance, but also hints to a larger goal of developing relationships and assessing the strength of their adversaries. This response gives critical context for how the outcome of the previous encounter influenced their subsequent decisions and interactions by revealing the underlying objectives driving Aerom's behaviour.

"So they lost the battle?" Thought Gilbert, a string emotions befell him; ranging from disappointment to concern and then to a strong sense of unease. His allies had been defeated and as such they were ordered to bring him right to their leading commander; "...and that just so happens to be me. I don't trust this man at all, his words; the way he structures his sentences and the dead "fact-burdened" speech deeps him as somewhat maniacal, but through the logistics I can believe him purely because of his actions thus far. Had he wished for something much deeper then he would have attacked without hesitation and so this, is what marks the war... Whether or not I win and keep the sanctity of Leiden."

"If you want to make alliances then shouldn't we discuss things more formally rather than standing outside waiting for a well awaited battle?"
Questioned Gilbert. This, of course, was directed to Aerom; the main orchestrator of the meeting.

"Smart... Avoiding immediate confrontation through using democratics." Mentally noted Akai, staring from Gilbert to Aerom as he awaited a response.

"My purpose in coming here was to build alliances and engage in friendly combat to assess your capabilities." Aerom revealed the deliberate method behind their appearance
"Bull$%&!" Angrily exclaimed Iris, who had been deep in contemplation. "He nearly took my life dammit! How do we expect to trust him so easily after the bleak instance of both Akai and myself dying due to their unwanted appearance on the island!" She glared at Aerom, her hostile emotions profoundly leaking from her essence; providing a tense air around her.


What would happen next, depends entirely upon Aerom's next decisions. As differing views collide in a silent discord amongst the guardians of Leiden...

After receiving that information, Aerom looked at her and said, "You started the attack by firing on me. My comrades simply acted in self-defense. It is not our fault that you have less strength than even our weakest member." The exchange highlighted a perspective in which the conflict's initiator shifted blame to the perceived other party, justifying their actions as defensive measures.

Aerom thoughtfully responded to the leader's offer, expressing both keen interest and agreement with the proposal. While demonstrating his willingness to collaborate, Aerom wisely emphasised the importance of careful consideration before fully committing to the alliance. To facilitate this critical assessment, he proposed an interesting and engaging solution: a friendly duel that would not only test both sides' strengths and potential, but would also deepen their understanding of each other's capabilities.
Aerom proposed this duel to promote transparency and mutual respect in the partnership-building process, emphasizing the importance of a thorough understanding of power dynamics on both sides. This strategic move was intended to lay a solid foundation of trust and cooperation, ensuring informed decision-making and, ultimately, increasing the potential success of any future alliances that may form.

"Tch-" She muttered as she angrily turned the opposite way, not because of their rebuttal but due to the fact that Akai had began glaring at her.

Aerom's proposition was interesting, especially to the likes of Gilbert. Though this sprung the premise of trust and a strong bond between parties which truly peaked his interest was Aerom's motive behind his arrival. Truly, it was something noble; would it be such a dastardly act to simply ask? Gilbert hesitated to bring Aerom inside as his intent was for a duel, if that's what awaited them after a thorough discussion wouldn't it be better to wait outside? Their intentions were already laid out to one another with absolute transparency and so what was left was to clear inquiries.

Gilbert questioned, "What it is do you want from this partnership? Allies come and go as they please for life is fleeting and it is precious, so Allying with us; What benefit do we bring to you?" It was the simplest of questions one could as in this situation for afterwards he wished to meet the eagerness Aerom presented for a duel; He hadn't truly accepted it just yet as Akai and Iris were still opposed to the adversaries being there, one could read it from their demeanors...

As a bounty hunter traversing the dangerous world where pirates and marines rule with unrivalled authority and raw force, I am continually confronted with the problem of operating without the same degree of strength at my disposal. This disparity in strength motivates me to take a new strategy to achieving my goals — rather than depending exclusively on raw force, I intend to broaden my reach by forming a network of strategic partnerships and alliances. My ambitions are strategically underpinned by the assembling of a varied array of allies, each of whom adds a new dimension to my impact. I hope to strengthen my position and effectiveness in this high-stakes environment by leveraging these partners' collective power and diverse skill sets.

In light of the current rumours, it has come to my attention that your group possesses qualities and capabilities that closely match the characteristics I seek in potential friends. Your reputation precedes you, and the potential synergy that may be realised through partnership has enormous promise for improving the efficiency of my operations. I believe that by collaborating with your group, we can develop a formidable alliance that will benefit each partner individually while also strengthening our collective position in this complicated landscape.
