Gaul didn't know fully why Anna needed to go anywhere. But he could answer as to why they wouldn't just send a message out with. Or at least, he could have if Anna had not explained it much better then he might have put it. "Messages might bet intercepted. At least this way, I can make sure things get to where they need to be."

The ex templar licked his mouth and got his horse to pick up his pace. Flipping the visor up from his helmet and tipping it back. Gaul gave himself a better range of vision to look out for trouble.

With only a few of them on the escort, he and Paqu would have to double time it. Try to cut their travel time down as much as possible.

Bob would chuckle, "I can carry mail faster than I can carry people. And ya think just cause ole' Bobakolokus is a round ear that Drow don't listen to him?" He'd snap the reins and click his tongue. "So we're just slowing ya down then?" "He gets it. And ye ever heard the expression, <Needle in a haystack>?" he said in halme. "Ole Bob don't look he's worth half a damn if he's carrying bags of letters to a colony all by his lonesome. A Lady in fancy dress with some armed guards though? Tempting target to some of the more desperate people out here." He'd look at the two Ssus out of the corner of his eye, "Or maybe yer ma's giving the Governor another gift?" He said to Anna with a smirk.

Looking at Bob Anna would get up from the beds sitting on the edge of it and she was wondering what he meant by another gift but that we'll be for a later talk. "Bob let me explain something in another time I would have you send a letter but know you do realize that the nids have eyes and ears almost ever where and is sure they been watching us at the tower..... let say I did give you a letter you would have to take a different route besides the jaals tunnels since they only let a few people besides them to use it you be a easy target but they would not attack you not at first." She said getting up fully and holding onto a few thing as she would sit within the front next to him not able to get much sleep at this speed. "They would have follow you back to the governor and most likely cases send that airship of there's to and considering who is the pilot of the thing is sure it be a more shoot first ask questions later thing..... us coming I know slow you down and the tunnel we use yes I know it put a few extra hours on us but I don't use the same tunnel twice but the chances of anyone following us is slim at best." She told him as they move quickly looking around then and ahead so far seeing nothing.

"Suss men can certainly be a gift." Gaul certainly didn't find much in the way of humor while being on guard like this, but his face did crack just a little at the idea of him and Paqu being offered as some Governesses gift.... But after a very harrowing close call they had just getting here. He had to keep his attention on the road and the many places ambushes could happen.

Bob's mood would turn sour, "And I would have gladly gone somewhere else other than through that death trap again. Only reason I even considered it was because you promised to pay me quadruple. And I'm tempted to quadruple it again as part of my <Pain in the Ass> fee." He'd slow the horses down with a click of his tongue as the road took a sharp turn. Paqu struggled to keep his horse from going off the highway. "I's born on a cart, and been smuggling and blockade running since me Pa stuffed secret messages in me dirty diapers." He'd click the reins and his tongue again and the horses resumed their break neck speed. "I can tell yer still a youngin'. You might be as pretty as you are now a hundred years after me and my grandkids are dust in the ground, but right now I've got a lifetime more experience than you do, and three more generations and <gods willing> there'll be another three generations after me that I'll pass that knowledge onto. And them folk back at Songbird's Perch aint gonna get caught off guard by that airship again neither. They know what they're doing, as do I." Paqu would ride up to the wagonside, "OI, you need to cal-" Bob would suddenly slow the horses and wagon down again, going off the main road, making the cart bounce and sway as it worked through a small clearing in the treeline. "Now everyone shut up for a spell. Ya got me so riled I almost forgot where we were." "Damnit!" Paqu would bring his horse to a stop and double back to get back to the path Bob took. "Now where are we?" he'd ask, just speaking loud enough to be heard. "On the blind side of a big bandit camp. If you folk weren't with me i'd just pay the toll and a little extra to take care of any Nids following me."

Looking at bob of his words she kept herself clam. "If that is how it is why you are really coming money then I have 250,000 ada sent to you once this is over." She told him holding on as they took the turn listing to him further feeling his emotions at this time feeling his anger this was something she was not trying to do keep a hold of her seat as they speed up again. "And I respect that and I do wise that you last even longer but there two things you don't fully understand one is about the airship yes it is a obsolete one and thank the goddess not a dreadnought but that thing has the high ground I learn from experience anyone with the high ground are almost unstoppable. Combine that with long range mana cannons along with speed that can avoid most return fire and you have a weapon that can bring massive amount of destruction the second one is who the one who controls it-" She stopped when it seem they were lost along with a bandit camp. "If that is the case then me and the other well going around this camp as you go through it do you but we still be close in case thing go bad do you need money?" She asked him.

Gaul was about to pull Bob off his high horse for speeding along like this, and for mouthing/ranting that carried them the rest of the way... where ever this way going. Gaul with his sharp blue eyes glanced around left and right. Trying to get a read if they were just lead into a trap.

Going off the main road wasn't something he had in mind... but neither did Gaul think the main road was any safer.

But the amount of Ada he was going to get paid... was staggering to say the least. Even Gaul had not seen that much money in one place but for some of the Kyorl Vaults he passed through... He just hopped no one bandit had heard of that kind of money being mentioned around here.

"You see anything?" Gaul asked Paqu as he rode up on the other suss side. Gripping his lance in his hand, as if he wasn't so sure if they were alone..

Bob was nearly at a quite hiss as he spoke to Anna, "If'n I just wanted money, I coulda sold out yer mum. You were the fastest way for me to get home, wern't no Illhar'dro's in Chell, that meant me doing freelance work and going to Nuqrath or Val'raveran and doing jobs till they had a shipment ready for Songbird." He slowed the wagon down even more, the cart making even less noise as the others caught up, "NO I don't need no damned money. Even if I did drop you all off you wouldn't know where to meet up and they'd be a bit suspicious of me just waiting on the side of the road fer no reason, or ya'd do something stupid like get caught." The clearing would end and there'd be thick woods, just barely wide enough for the cart to get through, with Bob zig zagging slowly through the trees.
Paqu would ride on the side between them and the camp, a steep hill and some cliffs, a watchtower just visible above the trees. "Bloody hel...yeah I see something. Who's got a spyglass?" "Big tower between two trees?" "Yeah." "He won't see us. He's more concerned about looking down on his men." Paqu would look up at it again, "I'd still feel more comfortable if I could see it." Bob stood up a moment and dug under his seat, handing a brass spyglass to Paqu. "All yer gonna see is the underside of that bear skin rug he's got drapped behind his 'throne'." Paqu would look through the spyglass as his horse followed next to the carriage, stopping a moment as a tree got in the way. "Aye...that's damn sloppy." "Others being sloppy is good fer us. Now nobody do anything stupid like yell how much money they got." He said as he maneuvered around more trees

She was a bit impressed with bob most humans she had come into contact with all they cared was about money but she knows from experience that not all of them are the same in there mind set and there way of life. "It was just a option of us separating but I do see your point in the matter if my mother or her sister was here we could go through them..... to ask bob how do you know of this bandits does your governor has dealings with them or do you?" She asked him in a whisper a bit curious of how he knows about the throne along with the leaders habits.

Gaul saw it soon after Paqu did. Making the extemplar feel even more uneasy about this place as the tree lines were far too close for his liking for mounted combat. Anyone could just hurl a rock over his head and be done with him. "How many men do you think they have here?" Gaul said as he manged to get his horse over to take a better look.

Bob would turn his head, "Too many for the two of you. Now get back over here." He'd turn back forward as Paqu hesitated, "Come on brother. We stick with your daughter." Bob would keep maneuvering the wagon around trees, zig zagging through the thick woods, "I know them, because a good smuggler...hel, any good caravaneer knows the dangers of the roads and how to avoid em. Sometimes that means doing some shopping for folks that ain't welcome in town, if you know what I mean. And the only business the Governor would have with them is at the end of a rope, or one of her 'songs', but they're not on her land and this isn't one of her trade routes, so there's not much she can do about it." There would be a clear path now and Bob would straighten out as the distance between the trees widened. There'd be the sound of water flowing. "You folks wanna risk resting the horses here?" Bob would ask, quietly.

Listing to the human bob are the bandits within the area and of there limited dealings keeping quite until the sound of water could be heard and his question if they stop here for a moment. "I would say no we are in a dangers any moment of rest at this time is our guard is down the last thing we need is to be ambushed." She would tell him as she looked about the place and looking behind also feeling about with her empathy so far not feeling anything besides themselves.

Nodding to Paqu's plan. Gaul kept himself close as possible to Asiliy's and his daughter. But with this wagon taking the tight and narrow passes between the tree lines, it was hard enough for him to do so while they followed the smuggling routes Bob took them through.

"Then lets keep going then." Gaul said to support Anna's idea to keep them going. Even he saw it was unwise to stay in potentially hostile territory... but eventually the horses will have to be rested. But maybe they could get lucky and not have to do it here.

Paqu brought up the rear, following behind the wagon, trying not to catch his lance on any tree branches. "Alright then. We'll have to pace ourselves a bit, next place is a Waystation. You stay in the back. And you two are a couple of mercenaries that decided to travel with me. Place is popular so try not to cause any trouble." He'd get the wagon moving again, going through some bushes to get back onto the road. The horses would resume their normal speed. "Once we cross the bridge we can go breakneck again." Paqu grumbled as his struggled to get his horse back up the incline and onto the road, catching a couple tree branches.

Looking about as they move further and taking the risk of not stopping to rest for a few moments until they get to safety looking at bob as he told them of the waystation and telling her to get into the back. "Alright I well do just that but I will be keeping a eye out as best as I can." She said to him taking notice of paqu having a bit of trouble of catching up with them letting out a small chuckle as he was forced through a few tree branches as she moved into the back of the wagon laying down onto the bed.
