OOC: fresh meat incoming
IC: Maki, Jarka, and the Toa of Ice Ataro were relaxing on the beach of Po Okio, after a hard day's work of doing things to help out in Po Okio after it turned out their Turaga was an evil Makuta and had been having buildings torn down, people arrested, and some people who conspired against him even publicly executed. Several people had to be escorted off of Prison Island with the help of the Toa because of the Manas crabs guarding the only way off the island. So yeah, this was a well deserved break. It was short lived, however, as the mailman from Po Okio came running across the beach carrying 2 scrolls in his mailbag. He arrived at the Toa's side as they sat in the sun. He caught his breath,
"Mail for Maki and... Jarka." He said, handing the scrolls over to them. They both opened their scrolls in unison and it read, well, as it reads.
"Hmm..." Jarka said, pondering the offer.
Maki replied, "Are you kidding me? You need to think about this? We make a great team, and that's 15 million widgets!"
"What on here says we're allowed to fight together? Please, I would love for you to show me." Jarka said, unamused by his friend's enthusiasm.
"Well, I wouldn't fight unless we could do it together."
"But who's going to protect Le Okio? You know Rexias can't protect them on his own, a firespitter like Gavi is not welcome in Le Okio, and neither is Tevalt."
"What about Ataro?" She says, and they both glance over at him. He just chuckles and smiles.
"Don't worry, I can protect Le Okio while you guys are gone. But if you're back with the prize money, use some of it to buy us all a steamed Pewku-crab feast." Ataro says, and they agree to this. They both sign their names on the paper and hand it back to the mailman. Ataro gets up and gets into his ATMC (all-terrain-motor-cycle) and zooms off from the sandy beaches onto the shining water. The mailman returns to the Po Okio Post Office while Maki and Jarka just... sit and wait.
