Jax, Leo and Kai left Swallow’s Nest at dawn. As Kai instructed, his trusted men Chu and Yu would continue on the city trading the best they could, leaving Turk, Keith, and Buck as their escorts. Unlike the travel to Swallow’s Nest, this time they wouldn’t go on foot: Kai had rent an axel rhino to carry his party until their destiny. This creature has similarities to rhinoceros’ family, but its evolution made it even more bulkier and colossal, reaching a maximum length size of an amazing 10 meters. It has a natural armor that covered its all body, making his snout more straight in a shape of an axe. Due to its features and its peaceful nature it was designated Axel Rhino, becoming one of the most popular traveling choices. The rent travel companies invest on their breed, complementing it with different types of palanquins and transport packs, depending on the type of service expected.
Kai takes the reins of the huge yet calm beast along the road, while Jax focus on his Darkmore’s notebook reading. On the other hand, Leo was visibly sick, not being able to even stand up.
-Augh. All this travel is making me sick. -whines Leo.
-Sure, it is this trip and not the drinking contest of yesterday’s party on Swallows’ Nest. -responds Jax sarcastically, recalling Leo and other men drinking as much as they could on Sullivan’s dinner.
-But it was free… and they called me out, so I didn’t have a choice. And I win, didn’t I? – says Leo while putting his head off the palanquin and puking. He then looks to a disgusted Jax and smiles – totally worth it.
-Don’t you dare to puke on the rhino! – yells Kai, looking to Leo -I pay too much to not get back the initial fee back.
-Augh… I feel like dying. I don’t feel good- mumbles Leo while getting close to Kai -Are we there yet?
-Are you an idiot? It will take at least a week at this rate to get to the next road inn, and a month to get to Hollow Bay. Why do you think we are traveling with this rhino carrying supplies for a month’s worth? Hey, stop clinging on me. What are you doin-
-Bleurgh – Leo vomits on Kai’s lap.
-Nooooooooo! My clothes! – yells Kai.
-I’m a little better now. – says Leo while cleaning up his mouth, and returning to the back of the palankeen next to Jax – I’m going to sleep now.
The little demon reappears with his arms crossed and shaking his head in disapproval.
-It’s really sad when you can’t handle it, isn’t it? You should only party hard if you can, am I right? Huh? Me, the other day? Well you got a point there… it’s like they say: those who can’t, teach. Hihihihi
-But let’s get serious and down to business: what the hell are axel rhinos? -says the demon while putting on a safari hat and getting some binoculars with a photo on his hands– it’s easy: it’s rhino with an axe like face, duh. It’s usually docile, it is very sturdy and has a very large size to carry out provisions and transport people. Ideal to travel if you have the money for it. 10 out of 10 traders recommend it. There are other mount choices, but it would get boring describe something that you’ll not see for a while, like Sand stallions. Oh the Sand Stallions, that’s a noble mount right there…what is a Sand Stallion? You never see one how could I explain that to you, are you dumb? It is exhausting talking to you. See ya next time, it’s getting dark.
