15th of September
Finally, a mission. Neo was starting to get cabin fever, cooped up in the castle. It got boring, but apparently she had to be careful because otherwise Salem would get mad if any of the Grimm spotted her when she wasn't around. So when she was called into the Room, and given a mission, Neo could've screamed in relief. There was only so long she could go without doing anything at all, in the end, and what was the point of working for Salem to fill time if it just meant that she was bored in a creepy castle, instead of being bored elsewhere? So yay, a mission.
Except she wasn't doing it alone.
Mercury was with her.
Neo had worked with Mercury before, fought by his side, and she had to admit he was good. But he wasn't anything special in the end. Just a kid with robotic legs and a lot of attitude, that Neo would've liked, if it hadn't gotten Roman killed. But she didn't blame Mercury for that. It wasn't his fault.
A mission. Escorting some Grimm to a town on the edge of the woodland, so that they could massacre every person there. Apparently there were some Huntsmen that were taking action, or this particular town had some kind of defence, because so far the Grimm had been unsuccessful. So, if Mercury and Neo came across resistance, their job was to eliminate it. With prejudice. They were halfway there,skimming across the ground, keeping pace with the Grimm, when Neo realised how bored she was.
Reaching out her parasol, she tapped Mercury on the shoulder, until he responded.
