"Oh Sarah, Papa said that I can come down here to play in the barn so long as I don't get caught by poopy face," Lucas laughed then ran and jumped onto the ladder. "This place is so fun to play pirates and adventurers in!" the boy giggled then jumped down from the ladder.
Alucard gave a bit of a grin and then gave a bit of a wink to Sarah. Stepping towards the boy, Alucard bent down and the boy gave a proud smile.
"You know... I'm kind of an adventurer," Alucard told him then watched Lucas's eyes get big and wide with wonder. Alucard stood once more and looked at Sarah. "Adventurers are always kind to women." he said then bowed to Sarah and brought her hand to his lips.
"Whoa! And what else do adventurers do?" Lucas asked, watching Alucard with great curiosity. He smiled then looked to Sarah.
"May I show him?" he asked, looking at her with a bit of a smirk.
Bella nodded then sighed a bit.
"I simply want Richter to have a more realistic view on the path that his heritage chose for him. It is an eternal battle, which cannot be ended by a blessed bloodline nor a whip, no matter what that whip may contain within. There is good in his heart, but I've heard the stories of how he was controlled by Shaft. Although I don't want to believe that it still influences him, I don't want to rule it out. Like I told him, evil cannot be killed, only embodied and purged from place to place," Bella explained and sighed. She then started towards the merchant.
"Come, follow me. I have connections to how we can get a lot of supplies for very little money. We will need plenty, and if we are lucky, perhaps there is a merchant there within the dungeon. And it doesn't matter if they are demon, vampire, or muse. Any man will sell what he has to a paying customer." she explained then opened the door to a small store.
