"Next bounty hunt? Do these idiots not realize that bounty hunters are private contractors?
" Ross muttered to himself, and pocketed the letter. "Looks like she's harmless, and is supposed to join some bounty hunters" he said to the two police.
The hockey mask bearer looked up at Ross. "Huh? B-but, what are you going to do with a little girl?" he said, his voice a little nervous.
"Dunno, use her to check tight spaces or something. At least she's another set of eyes watching" Ross answered with a shrug.
"I think it's a trick. Just trying to get our guards down to kill us in our sleep" the other policeman said, his gun still aimed at Alearth.
"I don't see how she'd pull that off when there's always people awake around here"*
Ross stated simply, folding his arms. "If she is here as a trick, then the monsters didn't pick a very good one. Now go on, we've got more than one person so she doesn't have to be alone with someone for a kill chance" he added, bringing up more authority.
The hockey mask policeman only hesitated for a moment before going back down the stairs somewhat quickly. The other one kept his gun aimed at Alearth and glared at Ross for a few moments, before backing away down the stairs slowly, gun still aimed at Alearth.
Once the man was finally out of sight, Ross nudged Alearth's back with his foot. "Come on, on your feet" Ross told her in a friendly but still authoritative tone. He glanced down the stairs and spotted Blight, and blinked a few times. "You look new here. What's your name, kid?" Ross asked, finally unfolding his arms.
