It sounded as though Cail had some sense about Enrick's behavior already, even though he would've easily put aside such a trivial matter anyways. Not knowing someone wasn't something that kept him at bay though, usually it was the getting to know people aspect which bothered him. Typically because he hardly ever associated with anybody before ever leaving Scalvoris, and yet here he was now all part of some crew he never would've thought to join. "Awe, that's great!"
Hannah almost sounded far too pleased, her enthusiasm only matched by the sharp grin she displayed. "Enrick's not such bad company, but he does like to play the tough guy."
Hannah teased with a nudge into his side, which gave him all the more reason to briefly glare at her. "Come on, it'll be fun sitting down with us!"
Enrick could only sigh as he followed the woman's lead, the both of them the first to return to their table with the rest. "What was that all 'bout??"
Matthew quickly checked as he noticed the third that followed them, already in a quick lean to quietly address their captain.
Hannah answered as Enrick found his seat, "we''ll let her join us for the eve. Freddy you should check that elbow for her, once she finds her spot to sit down at."
As Hannah finished Roy was quickly one of the first to address Cail's arrival, his welcome a bit more over the top than necessary. Both Enrick and Rhukan looked at him for a moment, before the Ithecal reached over to provide the lass with her own chair. Roy was quick to see where it was her seat had been placed, which ironically was between Rhukan himself and Enrick who resumed drinking beer. "Cail sweetie you know Ricky already, but these are the rest of the boys. First mate Matthew,"
the moustached man shot an inquisitive stare before nodding at her.
The blue scaled Ithecal softly barked as he looked to her from his side, his golden eye almost as intense as Matthew's look from before.
"Pardon me miss."
Freddy checked to make sure she knew he was there, which he quickly looked to inspect her injury right after.
"That one there's Frederick, but we all just call him Freddy."
Hannah added as he finished his inspection, ripping a strip of cloth from his shirt to use as a bandage. "The quiet one is Floyd,"
in response to the introduction the man across from Enrick waved briefly, "and Roy just so happens to be the one smitten with ya."
After all their introductions were out of the way, Cail took it upon herself to do the same in return with the crew. The reception she received was more or less positive as everyone, save for Matthew, seemed more on the welcoming side in their own way. Matthew was always the stickler of the group however, hardly ever accustomed to change when it came on so suddenly. Hell it even took an entire season for him to 'like' Enrick, which was essentially the point of where he talked to him instead of at him now.
Then Roy... "“Nonsense, our captain may be thick headed, but the man knows how to save beautiful damsels in distress!"
The man? Rhukan and both looked to him questionably, aware of his jokes and humor but definitely off guard by the angle.
Enrick feigned a laugh and sure enough, the rest started to join in with their actual laughs. It was no secret he did sail alone for a while, and while he possessed a ship no longer he was still it's captain. Essentially that meant there were two captains at present, and the slower ones took longer to catch on; but Hannah looked begrudgingly amused at the drunken crew member before chuckling along. It was clear now what the intent was, polishing Enrick up to look like hot shit in front of the new girl.
"Indeed, our maelstrom treader is unstoppable when it comes t' saving poor souls."
Enrick shot a glare with orange hues in his irides, right towards Hannah as she seemed impossibly pleased; there was no doubt that she found amusement in all of this. Thus the rest of the crew did as well, up until a genuine question seemed to come out of the blue. Where did they all meet? Now that was something unexpected, and yet it dawned on Enrick that even he didn't know. He'd never thought to ask such a thing before, and yet after spending nearly all of Ashan with them...
"Well that's a curious question!"
The actual captain looked a little more introspective now, aware that the color in Enrick's eyes had become silver quite swiftly. "I don't think anybody's ever asked that actually."
"Captain Hannah used t' be First Mate t' another, with me as his second until a disagreement arose."
Matthew answered for her, his sharp gaze shared between both Cail and Ricky. "We had a fallin' out wit' our previous cap'n, so she decided t' put 'er own crew together; an' I went wit' 'er t' become 'er first mate."
"Floyd came with us too, and we eventually made port in Ivorian for a bit. Rhukan signed on while we were there, and we moseyed our way to Ne'haer where we met both Frederick and Roy. Been sailin' together for a while now, and here recently we found our other 'captain' drifting in the cold sea."
That was his part of the story... Ricky's inclusion which he didn't expect to hear. "Poor bastard was so cold he could barely hold onto that barrel he clung to!"
"An' yet sometimes Oi wonder why Oi didn't jump back in..."
He remarked with a feigned sense of irritation, which quickly led to the others laughing at his expense.
"For someone who soaked in de ocean for as long as he did, his humor's still dry as a dusty book when you consider it."
The captain couldn't help but laugh at him once more, her brown eyes focused on Cail now that the story was told. However Enrick noticed that they didn't go fully into the story, only that both Hannah and Matthew talked of where they came from. This other 'captain' they sailed with, he could only wonder who it was now. It'd be something he'd have to ask them later, when everyone wasn't so damn drunk and rowdy like they were tonight. "So how about you Cail?"
Hannah inquired as everyone, Enrick included, gradually looked to her with various levels of curiosity. "You don't look like a mainlander, and Ricky here certainly didn't mind comin' to yer aid. Where 're you from?"
"Enrick", "Ẹrọim", "Follower", "NPC"
