As Hawkins and Manny escaped the dungeon, just as the flood waters rushed by, they were greeted by Marcus the Vile, a known bandit and the one whose group the captured werewolf supposedly came from. Together, they, and a girl called Kyky who had apparently been swept up by the events occuring in the castle, escaped from the fortress before it was locked down and checked. It wasn’t long before they ended up in the Eastern Forest, quite the opposite way Hawkins had intended to go, but still was safer than being in the King’s City. Besides, the last place the guards would look for a known pirate was the forest in the opposite direction he needed to go.
As they traveled, Hawkins found Kyky to be rather talkative, if not outright invasive at times. She almost always seemed to have something to say or some question to ask, and it was honestly somewhat off putting at times. As was his nature, Hawkins did his best to keep his past private and his personal life to himself, but she persisted often. It wasn’t until she came to him and told him just how rude he was being that he backed down and started talking a bit more. No one, much less a woman, had ever been as interested in him as she was. Left handed sailors were typically given a wide berth, as they spoke of misfortune and superstitions. But Kyky didn’t seem to care in the slightest. The more they talked, the more he realized how similar they were, and it brought him more happiness than he’d felt in a long time to have someone to talk to again. He quietly made himself a promise to attempt more often to reach out to people, with hopes to find more like Kyky in the world. He told her tales of the high seas and his brushes with real pirates, and how he came by his sword and shield, and she seemed to hang on his every word. It was nice to have a good friend to talk to again, and it didn’t hurt that she was pretty to boot. Now if he could just figure out his other companions and the unnatural storm that had spread across the kingdom and raged for many days.
