Still, he had things to do, and sitting around wasn't one of them. He headed back to the sitting area, where the Officer Jenny still sat. He had to admit that she was pretty, though all the Officer Jennys he'd seen were pretty. This one was dressed in a local uniform, which was black instead of the traditional blue and very tight, hugging her slim form in all the right places. Luckily, he was past most of the problems he'd had, or he'd be fainting right about then.
She happened to be checking him out too. He was rather handsome, and well-built in her modest opinion. If only she didn't have a job to do, she'd go with him.

"It can be."
"So what do I do then?"
"How about coming with me, young man?" put in an aged voice.
The two turned to see an aged man with red eyes standing near them. "What do you want?" asked the Lost Boy.
"You are the Tamer known as Ryouga Hibiki, are you not?"
With a smile that did not reassure at all, the old man bowed. "Then I must extend my Master's invitation for you to come see him."
"And who would be your Master?"
