Asha looked over at the mayor for direction, waiting for Marcus to get out ear shot before speaking quietly.
I've seen people like him back in Stonehammer, when they lack a clear direction to go, they usually find their way into trouble instead, it's not usually intentional, but they don't always make the smartest choices when left to their own devices if you take my meaning." She shrugged and eyed his retreating form, unsure whether to thank him for his intervention, or berate him for neaqrly getting himself shot by leaping into her line of fire.
"It might be better for everyone if a few of us keep an eye on him, and make sure he doesn't get into any more trouble, especially with how unsettled everyone is right now," She suggested to the mayor with a polite smile, "I know I'm new here, but your village has shown me kindness, and I would like to repay that in part if you're willing to let me."
Assuming you trust me, and don't blame me for the fire as well given it was my suggestion to torch the place. Then again you don't seem like the summary execution style of barons we used to get passing through Stonehammer, I wonder if that's the case or if you're just less vocal then they would be under similar circumstances?
