With the hot sun beating down on his back as he trudged along a dirt path near the woods, Simon Redcaster could safely say that this was another bad day in a streak of many bad days. He had only arrived in Tineburgh a few days ago, and already he'd managed to blow through all of his money and food without coming any closer to getting the information he needed. He had nothing to his name other than the sweat-soaked clothes on his back, being his typical gray sweater.

Then he heard the thunderous crash from the woods, turning quickly to see the smoke rising into the sky. He instantly broke into a wild and reckless run towards the wreckage of what he assumed to be an airship, only stumbling once in his mad dash. The answer to his sudden shortage of supplies could be waiting for him out there in a massive, fiery heap. Hell, he could even use some of the remains of the ship to make some sort of shelter for himself. With any luck, he'd be the only one with the idea to run towards a crash-site.

But of course, Simon Redcaster is not a lucky person. He stopped himself just at the edge of the woods around the clearing the ship had crashed into, his eyes instantly spotting the other two. They looked to be teens, like him. One was a big, muscled boy, and an Elemental by the looks of his markings. The other a scrawny looking girl, most likely an Aerian. The Aerian was currently tied up in the debris, and the Elemental seemed to be... chewing on something?

Simon weighed his options, but he didn't like his chances in a fight with the Elemental. Given Simon's own physique, he had no doubt he would lose in a fight with an Elemental. Instead of announcing his presence, Simon crept closer under the cover of the trees. Hopefully, these two would leave soon enough.

Piper had seen the Elemental boy approach, and in that she had nearly accepted death. The subtle smoke rising from his skin, the clear physical juxtaposition of the two... if she didn't suffocate, she knew he would deliver to her a fiery death. It was true that her school had been one of the few to integrate Elementals into their classes, though that didn't mean that they weren't the minority. The young man before her caused every stereotype, every nightmare and every single negative aspect of the Elementals she had ever read in a history book to spring clear into her mind. He was prejudiced, she could deduce that much, and he clearly had no idea what the hell he was doing with her inhaler.

Through her own gasps, she began reaching, making grabby-hands toward the object in his mouth. "G-Give me--" she gasped, speaking in strained tones. "Please! I c-can't-- *gasp* --breathe!"

She continued kicking, freeing a foot from the ropes as her face began to turn blue. She was going to die. She was going to die with an idiot standing a foot in front of her holding her key to salvation in his stupid mouth, coating it with spit. The spit of a garbage man.

"Give it!" She choked out again, beginning to cough violently.

At this point, Simon was much closer to the two than he was before. He was practically laying on the forest floor, the front of his sweater getting rather filthy in his attempts to stay hidden. It became clear to Simon that the Aerian was more than stuck, she was suffocating. He watched the Elemental tease the Aerian, seeming to take some sick enjoyment from the situation. What is that thing he was chewing? Simon craned his head to see exactly what it was that the Aerian seemed so desperate to get, despite it having been slobbered on by the Elemental.

Of course. An inhaler. Simon rolled his eyes at the cruel scene. Simon initially felt some obligation to stand up for the Aerian, if only because he didn't want to see someone die. However, he quickly snuffed sympathy that out. He didn't make it this far in life by playing hero, especially not when the villain is a buff-as-hell teen with a literal fiery personality. As far as Simon was concerned, the Aerian was dead and there was nothing he could do about it.

However, the Elemental seemed to have a better moral compass than Simon, as he gives the inhaler to her after all. Simon raised an eyebrow in surprise, creeping closer to the edge of the forest. His interest has been piqued, and now Simon wants to see this through. This day has grown to be quite interesting.

It was no longer panic that seemed to swallow Piper whole, but genuine fury. She had a weapon on her that she could use later, didn't she? Yes... yes. A revolver. She'd blow his miserable, pathetic brains out and then wash his body in Alchemist's fire. She didn't exactly know how to make it, but it couldn't be hard, she knew basic ingredients described in her history book.

Though then it occurred to her that she could only do this if she wasn't about to die. She had just about gone limp with her own hopelessness in self pity, when suddenly she saw the inhaler zipping at her forehead. Her hand flew upward and her fingers closed around it, though she had to fumble for it a few moments due to the sticky mess from the boy's slobber.

She took a final gasp in, holding her breath as she wiped the slobber off on her jacket. Her shaky hands removed the cap and simply threw it off to the side in her own desperation as she began to shake the apparatus, careful not to let it slip from her hands again. She let herself breathe completely out, before putting the thing to her mouth. It took all her willpower to keep things patient, controlled, and most importantly; not to slam her thumb down on the decompresser all at once like a button for detonation.

She could breathe again, she could feel it. She repeated the steps after counting to thirty in her head, and it occurred to her that this experience was like kissing her tormentor, like, with tongue, not even a quick and begrudging peck on the lips. The thought nearly made her throw away the breathing aid entirely and just allow the bittersweet embrace of death wash over her. But no, no...

Once her breathing had calmed down, she found that escaping the ropes was an easier task. After pocketing the inhaler, she simply had to move a few coils, adjust a position, tuck in one of her knees... and abracadabra, she fell straight to the ground.

Standing back up was more difficult than it seemed. Her limbs shook and wobbled, trying to refuse any kind of labour after that ordeal, but she gave her torturer/saviour the once-over, resisting the urge to bite her nails once she'd taken in how genuinely tall and fit he was. She couldn't just throw a punch at him, no... no... it was better to just...

"Th... Thank you..." She exhaled, taking in the unfamiliar amounts of oxygen with each breath. "I... You... You saved my life... I..." She trailed off, trying to find some sort of distraction. "I-I have er..." She trailed off, trying to think of something...

She'd heard his stomach growl a bit, he'd gone to eat the inhaler without even looking over what it was. Was he hungry? Could she use that?

"Supplies! Food!" She exclaimed breathlessly, her scrawny arm throwing itself out to point behind her in the wreckage of the airship. "I-It's ah... it's good, good food. I'd like to r... r-repay you. Here I... I'll get it!"

She didn't wait for him to respond, she simply lunged toward the wreckage of what was her father's ship. Would he see through this plan and grab her? After all, it was relying solely on the boy's stupidity. He was a backwards religious fanatic, just like the rest of the Illmorian people, how intelligent could he be?

For her sake, hopefully he was on par with a rock.

Simon was equally interested in the mention of food, having been the whole reason he came to this wreck in the first place. He now wished that he was the one to save the Aerian, since maybe he'd be the one to get a reward instead. When the Aerian disappeared into the wreckage of her ship, Simon slowly started to creep out from the woods he had used as cover. He stayed low to the ground in a crouch, and with any luck, he would not be noticed. He figured that since the Aerian was gone and the Elemental focused on the thought of food, now would be the safest time to come closer.

However, once the Elemental started to flip the hell out, Simon regretted his decision and instantly wished he'd stayed hidden under the trees. He fell backwards in surprise, letting out a small shout of alarm before instantly bringing a hand up to cover his own mouth. He was likely close enough to be heard, but he hoped that the Elemental was too distracted with the hole the Aerian disappeared into to notice. Either way, Simon quickly repositioned himself behind the nearest bit of wreckage to use as cover, silently cursing himself for being careless.

"I-I came alone! Mmhmm!" She squeaked out, reaching and straining to get into the bag for her revolver. One shot, that was all it would take. He couldn't manipulate the metal, surely... Fuck, fuck, where had she put it? She did have supplies, a bag of bread.

She heard him yell something, and then stopped, hearing a sort of 'yelp' from above, and then considering another thing she had yet overlooked.

The airship wreckage would be found in less than twenty-four hours and she knew it. If they were to find a dead body near the wreckage... surely they would know what happened. She'd be hunted down and persecuted as a fugitive. It wouldn't be a simple matter of theft, but first degree murder. She couldn't kill him. But then again... by that logic... Neither could he.

She took a loaf of bread from the torn bag, if he was going to get food, it would be the damn food that she didn't need the most. Her right hand finally found the nearly empty revolver, and she spun the chamber into place with a clumsy hand and a 'click'.

She knew he probably heard that. She needed to let him know that she could do damage. That she wasn't about to let herself be burned to a crisp by some blonde idiot with muscle in place for a mind between his ears. She slowly rose from the wreckage, throwing the bread toward his feet and pointing the revolver at his head with her elbow locked and holding the gun as far away from herself as possible.

"Just take the bread... and do NOTHING more than that. That's all I owe you after you spit-bathed my inhaler and nearly killed me. I will put a bullet through your brain if you try to attack me." She did her best to sound menacing, keeping her wavering voice low. "That's all it takes, just a twitch of my finger."

Simon ducked his head back and behind the wreckage once he saw the Aerian come out of her hole. The Aerian was pointing a gun at the Elemental, but luckily it seems he wasn't noticed. And on top of all that, the damn Elemental still was given a piece of bread. Simon felt his stomach growl at the sight of it, once again silently cursing himself. He hoped that the Aerian would just shoot the Elemental and get it over with, but then the Elemental told her to "tell your friend to show themself."

It didn't take a genius to figure out that the he meant Simon. So he had heard him after all, and he even snitched him out to the Aerian. Great. Just great. Simon poked his head up slowly once more, accidentally locking eyes with the Aerian before flattening himself against the ground. Why had he looked again? He knew that they were looking at his hiding spot, the visual confirmation didn't do anything but put him in harm's way. God damn Elemental with his god damn big mouth. If Simon doesn't get shot himself, he'll make sure to punch that Elemental for this.

On second thought, the Elemental is still certainly the most muscled person in the group. Simon would probably break his hand on the guy's jawline.

Piper didn't dare move until the boy was out of sight. She simply kept hold of the revolver. He'd made some comment about her skin, to which she had responded that they had basically the same skin colour, and hopefully Ophelia would be able to protect him from manufactured lead.

She watched him eat... She'd read that the Elementals had a strong sense of community, and that hardly any were denied food, yet he was famished. Had he run away from home?

She hardly had time to think about that before the blonde gave a pointed glare to an area of the wreckage after making his jab about her not coming alone. Her face paled, she began to shake a bit as the gravity of another Aerian being here so soon weighed on her shoulders. She saw it too, the person's head poking up above the wreckage, but only for a brief moment. She took a breath in as they locked eyes, gulping. They looked... well, from a distance and from such a small glance, they had looked frankly androgynous.

"... Who the hell are you?" She called out, keeping the gun trained on Axel.

Things really went downhill fast for Simon. He was sure the Elemental was about to burn him to a crisp as he lays in the dirt, but instead he just demanded to know what he was doing. Simon slowly picked himself up to his feet, his hands raised in the air in surrender. He looked between the Aerian and Elemental, trying to decide who he should address. Finally, he turns himself towards the Aerian, ignoring the Elemental boy. After all, she was the one with a gun.

"Who am I? The unluckiest person in god-damn Tineburgh, probably," He says with a frown, taking a step closer to the Aerian and away from the Elemental. He tried his best to look unthreatening, which wasn't hard. Compared to the Elemental with his whole flame thing, and the Aerian with her gun, Simon was just a scrawny kid wearing dirty clothes, "I came by in hopes that I could help anyone who survived the crash. It's always been my dream to be a doctor."

This, of course, is a lie. Simon wanted to pick anything valuable from the corpses he hoped to find in this wreckage, but, as he said, he's extremely unlucky and instead stumbled upon two very alive and very dangerous teens. All he wanted was some bread, maybe something to drink.

Piper listened to the human, before scowling. "How long've you been sitting there?"

She made a flicking motion with the gun at Axel. "He's got bread in the bag, there's another loaf." She told the scrawny teen. "He'll probably share, I mean, unless he's a savage or something."

He clearly wasn't an elemental, but with his scrawny build she really couldn't be sure whether he was an Aerian native to Tineburgh or just a regular human. The sooner she could get the two of them out of there, the better.

Simon sighed, looking between the two with clear annoyance. He finally settled his sight on the bag of bread, his stomach rumbling once again. He knew it was going to be hard to get that bread, especially with the ultimatum of getting the Aerian to put down her... boom stick? Is that what he called it? Simon rolled his eyes, turning back towards Piper and taking yet another step closer to her, his hands still in the air.

"You heard the guy. If you'd be so kind as to put the 'boom stick' down, I'd really appreciate it. In return, I can tend to any wounds you may have gotten in the crash... once I get fed," He says with a pleasant smirk, hoping that he was as good of a liar as he thought himself to be. It'd probably be easy to fool the Elemental, seeing as he was trying to eat an inhaler just a few moments ago. The Aerian, however, may be less likely to fall for Simon's lies. He can only hope the punishment for lying isn't a bullet in his head.

Or a bullet anywhere, really.

Simon had felt pretty cocky as the Aerian seemed ready to willingly set down her gun, despite the threats of people tracking her by her shirt. He rolled his eyes and gave her a look, clearly expressing that he did not believe her. He had to give her props for trying, at least. And besides, she doesn't have to be very convincing to fool this Elemental. He was about to chuckle at the situation, but of course, things got bad again as the Elemental became angry.

Simon cursed himself for getting so close to the Aerian, who is now a prime target for this guy's fiery rage. The last thing Simon needed was to be caught in the cross-fire between these two, "Hey hey, let's all just calm down. No need to get like this," He said as he stepped between the two of them, hoping that he can prevent the Elemental from turning the surrounding area into a field of fire like he threatened to do. Not only would Simon die in that, but the bread that is rightfully his would be burnt as well.

He looked towards the Aerian, letting out a sigh. At this point, it'll be easier to go along with the lie than try to get her to back out of it, even if his request is rather... ridiculous. "Alright, Goggles, do what the guy says... remove your shirt, I guess," His expression becomes slightly sympathetic, but he changes it back to indifference with a shake of his head. Not his fault the girl said the device was in her shirt, and not her shoes. Shoes would be much less weird in this situation. Besides, the girl is smart enough to find some way out of this, probably.

Piper had begun to panic, cursing herself for making up such an obvious lie. At the very least, she had a way out...

"Didn't you hear me? If I remove my shirt, my heat signal will go down to nothing, since it won't be near my body anymore! Do you want to die, fireboy?"

That was reasonable, she internally screamed. Clearly the other human/Aerian didn't believe her on this, but she didn't need his belief, she needed the Elemental's.

Simon groaned, looking increasingly frustrated with how out of control the situation has gotten. He pinches the bridge of his nose, shaking his head. Not only is it bad enough that he failed to stay hidden, but now this Elemental has mistaken Simon for an Aerian friend of the girl. Just perfect. Simon turns towards Axel, a scowl on his face as he balls up his hands at his side.

"Alright, buddy, let's get something straight. I am not an Aerian, and I am not your enemy here. You need to calm down before Goggles over here shoots us both," He says, then turning back on the Aerian girl, just as angry looking with her, "And you. Unless you want to get cooked like a well-done steak, you better let him burn the 'device' in your shirt... or come up with a better lie," He says the last part in a whisper, not wanting to blow her cover to the Elemental. He just might burn them both to dust for lying to him, and Simon has never been one to snitch.

She sighed to herself, there was no way that she was going to convince him that she wasn't dangerous with that 'device' in her, so, taking a deep breath in before reaching down and gripping the edge of her shirt, tearing off a strip with a wince. 'Damn idiot...' she thought to herself, handing him the strip. "There, it's sewn into there. Take it."

Piper balled her hands into fists, her face going red with anger as she glared Axel down with an expression that could probably make the leaves wilt and fall from their branches. She was warring with herself. Fight or flight? Is it better to take this defeat, or possibly put her and the other boy in danger.

Flight it was, she was much too small to attack, and her gun was at her feet.

"As far as you're concerned, my name is Your Food Source," She snarled a bit, adding softly. "Fucking Dickmeister..."

Simon fumbles to catch the bread that was tossed at him, immediately biting into it once he had a firm grasp on it. Alright, now that he's been fed he is feeling pretty good about the whole situation. He neglects to answer the Elemental right away, instead letting the Aerian go first. He chuckles slightly at her response, surprised at her behavior after just coming close to being turned to ash. She has guts, that's for sure. He takes one more bite of bread before swallowing and clearing his throat, ready to finally respond.

"Simon Redcaster," He says, not really seeing a reason to lie. Things just got done being tense, so answering with something sarcastic or a lie could be disastrous, "And again, I'm not an Aerian. I don't know why that's hard to believe."

Piper couldn't help but give another chuckle at 'smarterest'. She'd gotten her edge in, and she doubted there was much he could do to them at this point. She didn't exactly know how to feel about the blonde. On one hand, he seemed like a complete, irredeemable asshole, but on the other hand, she was curious about him.

"Machines aren't mammals, cannot produce milk, and are therefore incapable of breastfeeding, Axel Bowyer." She chortled again, hoping that the air would become at least a little less tense than it had been. She smirked a bit at his refusal to accept Simon as a regular human.

"Sorry, Doctor Redcaster, you've been assimilated. Whatever you were before is dead now in his eyes." She said, jerking a thumb in Axel's direction.

Simon shook his head, completely baffled as to why it was so hard to believe he was human. Was it because of his small physique? He felt the desire to continue arguing about this, but decided it wasn't worth it and settled for some half-hearted grumbling as he crossed his arms over his chest and frowned at the Aerian. Axel was right, where does she get all this confrontational energy from? On one hand it's impressive, and on the other it's damn annoying. She's something, that's for sure.

"So come on, what is your name? Unless 'Your Food Source' is, in fact, your given name," He said, his frown wavering for a second as it shifts to a cocky smirk at his own joke. He doesn't think it's exactly fair for her to be the only one not to hand out her name, even though Simon can't help but find it weird that any of them are sharing their names. It's as if a gun wasn't being swung around wildly just a few moments ago.

Piper had allowed a small smile to crack on her face, "Mmhmm," She confirmed with a nod, "Piper 'Your Food Source' Moore, right on the birth certificate."

Now that she had a better chance to look at the two boys, taking in their appearances and noting any details. Axel had his markings and singes on the edge of his clothing, nothing really out of the ordinary. She wondered if he was even carrying a weapon on him. Simon, on the other hand, didn't look armed, didn't look-well fed, and certainly didn't look like any kind of medical expert, yet...

A thought crossed her, and she snapped her fingers together as another pang hit her ribcage. "Are you going to tend to my wounds as promised?" She asked the scrawny boy. He couldn't fix up her ribs without ingredients whatsoever, could he?

Axel folded his arms, "You know it doesn't help your case when you just make up words to seem smart." Axel said with a raised brow at Piper, still not quite understanding everything she was saying. He then nodded along with Simon. "Go on, tell us your given name Aer girl?" He said sternly before she finally spoke up, causing Axel to scoff. "What kind of idiot would actually put 'Your food source' in their childs name?" He said shaking his head, not grasping the joke fully. "Stupid Aerians." He said, actually seeming to find some amusement on what he thought was stupidity on their part.

As she spoke up about her wounds to Simon, Axel rolled his shoulders, looking between the two again. "Well then.. That's my cue to leave.. Hey, if you see any more of your kind armed to the teeth and in large groups.. Tell them I went that way." He said pointing in the opposite direction to where he was backing up. Would they let him go so easily? There was nothing else to be said for the Elemental, unless they had other plans for him.

Simon tensed for a second, having forgotten about his own claim of being a doctor. This isn't an issue, though. Lying comes naturally to Simon, and lying more on top of other lies is just as easy. He clears his throat, giving another wide smile to the Aerian, Piper, before speaking.

"Well, Ms. Moore, it is my professional opinion that all you need for any injuries you may have is some R&R," He says, then turning to Axel, "That's 'Rest and Relaxation' for you, in case the abbreviation confused you."

He then finishes off his bread, looking between the two of them. Axel seemed to be in a rush to leave, and so was Simon. However, he didn't really have anywhere to go, truth be told. Could he convince one of these two to let him stay with them? He assumed that Piper wouldn't have anywhere to stay either since she crashed her ship into the forest, so asking her would be pointless. Axel may have a place he can stay at, but Simon absolutely does not want to spend even a single night under the same roof as this guy, especially not when Axel thinks he's an Aerian.

"Well, I guess we're all going to go our seperate ways now, huh?" He says, looking around at the wreckage of the ship as he talks to them. Maybe he could use some of this as a temporary shelter? Not like Piper is gonna be using it.

Piper frowned, going to lift up her shirt. She inhaled sharply upon seeing the palette of bruises and odd bumps that covered the the left side of her ribcage. She could feel a dull aching over her limbs, and she figured that it was only going to get worse.

"... Shouldn't this be... wrapped?" She queried, trying to keep her voice from cracking. The worst injury she'd faced was a few sprained joints and the occasional skinned knee, and now that the focus was on her injuries, they were beginning to hurt a lot more.

"Do you have... b-bandages...? A sort of salve? Anything?" She continued, trying to ignore the pained tears stinging the edges of her vision.

Axel blinked at Simon's 'professional opinion' nodding as he broke down the abbreviation as it did actually confuse him. He glanced over at Piper, who had lifted her shirt slightly to see the wounds. He pointed at the wounds, "It's going to take more then some silly Aerian R&R to heal that wound." he said stepping closer to Piper to inspect the wounds on her rib cage. He was no doctor himself, though his mother had never failed to teach him a thing or two about wounds and herbs. He ran a hand through his hair before stepping back from her once more, turning his attention to Simon.

"You need to clean the wound, Redcaster. You can find some Chervil within this forest that will help to stop all the dirty Aerian technology the wound rubbed on from infecting it." He said as he looked around the forest. "Make sure the leaves ar-" He stopped as his lip curved into that of a small smile. "I'm sure you know how to prepare the leaves, Doctor Redcaster." he shrugged "I also suggest webbing the wound and preparing some Comfrey to help soothe the pain. Or, better yet don't prepare the Comfrey and allow her to suffer through the healing." He bit down on his tongue, turning from Simon back to Piper before shaking his head. "The bruises and swelling around her ribs makes it look as if she might have broken a rib. But then again I'm not the doctor here, Aerian. Anyway, wrapping it and the Comfrey should help with that too." He said with a shrug before adjusting the bread loaf bag on his shoulder. "Well, enjoy finding and preparing the herbs. Ylena forgive me, I have been too kind to these Aerians.. Better get to work quick Redcaster." he said with a nod before going to walk off into the forest. It was odd though, seconds before he was prepared to torch both of the Aerians. But now, did he actually feel as if he enjoyed the company of the other two? He shook his head, he was just lost was all. It was their race that was hunting him down in the first place.

Simon's eyes widened and his face shifted into a grimace as Piper lifts her shirt to show her wounds. He turns his head away, letting Axel inspect them instead. Of course she's badly injured, this is just Simon's luck. Since when are airship crashes so dangerous? Looks like he isn't going to get away with recommending her to just sleep it off, so he started to think of something else when Axel gave him the perfect out.

"Some plants in the forest, eh? Well, it'd be cruel of me to ask you to go get them yourself, Piper, so I'll get them for you," He says, giving her a sympathetic smile before turning his back to her. As soon as he does, he smiles wide and cruel to himself, starting to walk away with the promise of coming back with herbs. This, of course, is a lie. Simon will just continue to walk until he finds himself back in Tineburgh, unless he is stopped.
