>"When does the school get out?"
>"In a couple of hours I do believe. That's part of why I offered the clinic, with injuries like those I doubt waiting with them that long will be pleasant..." he replies, "At least they've mostly stopped bleeding by the looks of it, though that could be because those metal bits are keeping the wounds sealed..."

>Check ourself for anything useful or any money
>You check your outfit for any pockets, wincing from the pain as you do so.
>You don't appear to have any burnable paper money. Or pockets for that matter.

->"What currency does the village use?"
>"Ah, I can see that being an issue..." he scratches the back of his head, "We use Mon here. Sometimes outsiders who move in bring Yen with them, but its almost worthless here."
>He proceeds to rifle through his pockets, "Hmm... not sure if I have enough on me to cover potential expenses either... You might have to owe a small debt in that case, sorry."

>You hobble over to the bench and take a seat. While the action of sitting down itself is somewhat painful, it does feel much better overall to be resting.

>You're not sure what's going on in the show, having started to watch in the middle of it, nor are you familiar with this style of theater, but from what you can tell it's something about a religious conflict with the characters being comically exaggerated. It's mildly entertaining.

>Occasionally glancing about, you spot a woman with a large wooden backpack with half of her face concealed by the shade of a straw hat among a small gathering of people. From what bits of her hair you can see, it seems to be a shade of purple.

>Steeling yourself, you stand up with a wince before limping over towards the peddler.

>"Hm?" she looks in your direction when you speak, the straw hat lifting up to reveal two brilliant red eyes that immediately go wide upon seeing your current condition.
>"Oh my goodness!" she exclaims, "Are you alr-No, stupid question... Um... Do you need help at all?"

>"Yes, I am... and yeah, I can see why you'd want to see my master... The healers in the village do a decent job but with your condition... Yes, it will probably need master's touch..."
>"Do... you need me to carry you or anything? No offense but I'm honestly surprised you're standing with injuries like that."

>"Right, so the world is at war.  I don't have all my memory so I'm missing quite a bit, but it was bad enough peace makes my skin crawl.  That village looks pretty old.  It seems more believable that fairies form from human hair than luddites formed a secret paradise unaffected by the war."
