The soldier seemed to be trying to say Are's name with some difficulty. It was understandable though, not only they were using two different languages, the Dregas' name weren't exactly easy to pronounce to begin with and they usually only tell one part of their name or, like Are, made a nickname. Still, watching the reaction of people when he introduced himself with his full name was always interesting and somewhat became a habit. The boy held his will to laugh and instead grinned as the older man extended a hand, "Well Adder Rag Necter, it is nice to meet you."
Are looked at the extended hand. Well, at least something are similar, he thought as he took the hand with his own. He looked at the grinning person as the person pointed at a direction and said something. The man continued with his left hand forming a bowl, while his right making a motion like he was scooping soup into his mouth, while still asking questions. Are assumed that the man was going there and asked him to join. Are didn't answer the question as his stomach answered it first by giving a rumble. While he still have no idea who or what the man in front of him was, sticking with him might be a good idea for the moment. He scratched his head in embarrassment before nodding to the man. He'll have to try to find a way to learn the language the man used somehow, he had a feeling that he'll run into the man often in the future. He then started walking to the direction that the man pointed earlier, unaware of the misunderstanding.
