Catching up
« on: December 18, 2015, 08:59:03 pm »
It was another cold night in Canterlot with everyone either going home or heading out to party as it was another weekend night. Most people take that time to enjoy themselves before head of back to work after it was all over. That was something he needed. A nice night to enjoy. Sadly with the little money he had on him that might not be possible. Al just got back to Canterlot to move in with his sister after some work was done in Manehatten. He still didn't have a job so spending money wasn't such a good idea since he had to help her pay rent. But maybe a drink couldn't hurt. Walking down the street without his assassin robe on, he couldn't help but to remember his guard training when he was younger. He was the best trainee in his class, but he left before graduation under his own reasons. Which he didn't share with anyone when he left. But that wasn't why he was in town. He just needed to relax.

Ebony leaves the castle after filling out the last of the paperwork required for the apprehension and transfer of the Directors after their capture, if they are captured at all. Cadance's assistance certainly made the process much faster, but it still was a lengthy process. The night was still young, especially for a Noctral, so sleep was the last thing on his mind. A stroll through the city would certainly be enough for him to clear his mind of all of the craziness he came across in the past few hours. Still, it was hard not to worry about the others, going after the organization that trained one of his closest friends to be a weapon of mass destruction. Shaking the thought off, the captain continues down the road, deciding that a drink or two are certainly in order. Turning a corner, he finds himself walking a short distance behind another stallion enjoying the evening. His appearance does draw the noctral's attention, a certain familiarity taking hold, like a distant memory he can't quite grasp. Shrugging, he decides to use his authority as an excuse to speak to the stranger ahead. "Excuse me, citizen. A moment of your time please?"

Al contiuned to walk down the street thinking of how he can spend his night with the little money he can spend, but he was pulled out of his thoughts once someone called to him. Turning out, he was caught by complete surprise to see that it was a guard of the night. Was it....no can't jump to conclusions.

"Is there a problem sir?"

Al ask keeping his poker face and in a calm tone.

Ebony quickens his pace to catch up with the stranger up ahead. "Nothing urgent citizen I just..." He takes a deep breath and relaxes, dropping the stoic attitude of the guard. "You uh, seem very familiar. Have we met before? Were you part of a guard unit? Sorry I just... you look like someone I used to know back in the day."

Now he knew who this was. He was the captain of the Lunar guard. He saw him a lot during his training. What were the odds if him bumping into the man out on the streets. "I was part of the Lunar guard ya, but I did leave before graduation from training. Does the name Al-Sal him right a bell?" Al said to the captain to see if that would get the gears turning in his head.

"Al-Sal him!" Ebony says, his ears peeking up immediately. He nods, "Of course, now I remember. You were part of the training curriculum. As I recall you were one of three in the entire history of the Lunar Guard to complete the Crucible (obstacle course) in record time. It's unfortunate you had to leave early, but I'm sure you had your reasons. So how have you been? What brings you to Canterlot?"

"Well captain Manhattan wasn't working so well for me so I decided to move back to Canterlot. I'm living in my sister' apartment until I can find a job and get money for a new place."

Al told his former captain as he left most of the details out. No need to go around tell him private information about himself. The money part wasn't so private though. He had a lot of money from his own things, but he needed to real job to cover his tracks when he wasn't doing...him.

"You know anyone who's hiring?"

"Anyone who is hiring? Hmm..." Ebony pauses as he contemplates the answer. "Well I know the Lunar Guard is always open for you. We can pick up where you left off, finish the training and offer a full or part time position. Other than that it really depends on what skill set you're offering. From I saw back in your training days, a courier service could be a good fit, or body guarding as well."

"Finish my training?" Al asked himself before losing himself in his own thoughts. The guard job had a risk in getting in the way of his personal agenda, but it was a good source of money. Besides he didn't want to make those years in guard training before completely for nothing. "Ya I'm in. Besides I left not to long before graduation so it shouldn't take that long right?"

Ebony shakes his head, "No it's not a very long process at all. Update some forms, run a medical exam again and pick up where you left off. If you fell as if you need to retake a few then we can arrange that too." The captain lifts his hoof to cover the suppressed yawn that suddenly emerges, "Sorry, it's been one heck of a day and I haven't had my evening drinks. How about this..." He pats Al's shoulder with friendly vigor, "Why not join me for a few drinks? I'll cover the beverages."

"Now that's something I can get behind." Al said in response with a devilish smirk. A few drinks would be the thing he needed to help get through the night after the long trip and with a friend was even better.

"Wonderful!" Coldsteel exclaims, already having a place in mind. "Follow me; I know of a joint that has the best beer battered pretzels around." As the captain begins trotting forward, he stretches his wings into the air. "It's called the Dog and Bull tavern, and is only a few blocks down the road."

"Well sir if this place is good as your saying it is then I'll just take your work for it." The unicorn exclaimed as he followed right behind the lunar captain.

"Excellent, good to hear." Ebony exclaims as he trots towards their destination. After some time travelling and conducting small talk the two end up at the Dog and Bull Tavern. Several guards are seen conversing at the few outside tables, the barkeep stepping in to serve a round of beverages. "Here we are, after you." The captain holds the door open for Al, revealing the subtle atmosphere as the aroma of warm meals permeate the air around them. Casks of ale line the back wall as a large counter for the bar is found lined in the center of the establishment, the hub of activity for those looking for a refreshment.
