Ahrea Campaign 2: Journey Of The Monster Hunter
The next day Fiva has gone out to do some extra hunting for her new friend; so Aras decides to sharpen the girl’s sword; which she had left behind. She’s overly pleased with this (As Vyraelys was extremely blunt by this point); and so she’s glad to share her spoils with Aras. After spending some time getting to know one another; she shows him some archery skills; though he’s not the best at it by any means.
Quest XP – 300
Within the couple weeks of their first meeting; Aras teaches Fiva how to effectively use her sword; as she wasn’t as skilled as she could be. She appreciates the training deeply; and appears overly flirtatious with him. Indeed; Aras is already in love with her, despite the oddity of their meeting.

Fearing for Aras’s life; Fiva quickly carries him back to her home; and begins treating him. She’s highly upset with him for doing something so careless though he had intended well; and as she lies on his chest she informs him of the fact that her family was all slaughtered by the Vanrer; so was her village…he’s the only thing she has left. Saddened by her tale; Aras resolves himself to stay around for her.
