Today was the smuggler's turn for treasure hunting, and this one particularly had a penchant for stealing Gaiyan treasure and smuggling it to the best seller. Unfortunately, the thief wouldn't be able to keep all the vgs for herself. She still had a debt to pay Wesley, after all.
The breeze that blew at Emi's countenance was a welcoming one under the blistering heat of the sun as she zipped away on her bicycle. Her orange bandana thankfully covered most of her head and kept her spearmint-colored hair away from her face while she rode on her bike into the hoptus forest. Emi wasn't afraid of riding her bike on the natural pathways of the forest, but she did come to a stop behind some trees just before she reached a clearing.
The hoptus forest can really change people. Upon parking her bike to eat a sandwich she had taken from Wesley, the thief that never shared her food somehow ended up only eating half a sandwich upon encountering a particularly grumpy-looking biyaya. Somehow, she hoped she wasn't going to regret that by starving later.
"...I'm regretting it already.." A sigh escaped Emi's lips as she mourned for that half-sandwich she decided to give up for nature. "What the fuck came over me anyway?" Before she can ponder more on that, the greenette blinked her green orbs with a raise of her eyebrows upon catching sight of the treasure vault opening by a red-haired, half-tree-looking - oh great it had pointy ears. Of course it was also an elf. Emi couldn't help but crinkle her nose slightly in annoyance at the thought of running into what looked like some kind of Gaiyan while trying to steal Gaiyan treasure. He better not even think about getting in the way. Still, as her eyebrows knit together pensively, she came to the decision to give this guy a chance not to get in her way.
"Well wood ya look at that?! Ahahah!" Emi joked with a broad grin upon slinking out of her hiding spot among the trees as she skipped along to the opened passageway. "Pfft! Now that's an en-try!" She emphasized on "tree," finding her own double meaning hilarious as she giggled out loud before covering her mouth with a gloved hand as she eyed him closely. If there would have been an instance where Emi would have found this red-head familiar, this would have been it. Unfortunately, she was far too drunk during Single's night to remember.
Entering the cave proved to be immediately perilous when the thief stopped just short of three feet in and caught the markings of what looked like a trap. "Shit! Ahah.." The leather boots she wore were practically standing on her toes, trying to hold back from making a tragic misstep onto that third step. The danger and fear of death only fueled her adrenaline rush; the narrowing of her eyebrows on her countenance was only etched with determination. "I was wondering when the fun would start!" Before she'd dare to find another way around, she peered back at the Gaiyan man, keeping her guard up in case he was gonna try anything to stop her.
