Ayame quenched her eyes toward Lee's obnoxious behavior in order to prove that he was not a demon. What was even worse, he didn't seem even half as good as her mentor. This provoked her thoughts as she started to believe that he was more of an idiot than a demon...or a real Spirit Monk for that matter. A few moments later, a young girl stumbled into the tavern. She did look a bit odd. Her chi also felt a little off. She couldn't possibly be a full human...Now...Ayame has become suspicious of the little girl.
"That something you often ask people girl? Heh." she heard her say.
Ayame blinked a few times and replied...
"...You can't be too careful in this land anymore...You never know who is a monster and who is not. You don't even have to be a demon to be a monster...Humans are just as evil as the spirits who haunts our empire." she spoke boldly.
"My mentor taught me that...and that is something I will never forget." she finished.
