    Out on the Road [Closed]

    Gray completely understood Elysium. This piece of metal and hide could sometimes make the difference between life and death and wearing it did feel just... safe. "Agreed. Sometimes it just feels good to wear that metallic uniform" The stallion said with a smile on his face, remembering his own armor. It was a long, long time since he put it on, and yet, he remembered every aspect of it, how it pressed onto his back and the metallic cling it would make when being put on. It had its own special place inside of this old stallions memory and heart. "Yes. Luckily, or not I have my house there. If you can call it that. It is more like a shack. I don't really use it often so a bed and some storage space are more then enough for me" Gray's voice was a rather blank one, speaking of his home without any excitement. That building may have been his house, but what made it like this, were the things he held inside. Without those, Gray wouldn't even care about it. "A traveler, an explorer. I have been, am and will be one of those to my grave" Gray chuckled a bit "Personally, I rarely meet others on the trail. Maybe that's just my luck. Who knows" He shrugged "And being able to move freely is why I even started what you can call, MY adventure," Gray said exaggerating the word MY for dramatic reasons, which he then chuckled off. "Uf. My grand days are way past me" He said and moved his hoof through his mane, which already had a couple of white hair here and there. "If I don't have a house?" Gray echoed Elysium's question, thinking for a second "Firstly an inn, then I will need to think..." He answered after a second "To be honest, it would be hard for me to find another house, but maybe... Probably would just move in with someone else... Or become a nomad. Who knows!" Gray shrugged and smiled "I don't plan for that far! It's too stressful!"

    Hearing the apologetic tone in their voice Gray chuckled a bit and waved his head slightly from side to side "No, no. Don't worry. I greatly appreciate that you did that. And it still is quite impressive" The stallion said and gave a warm smile towards the traveler, feeling like he might have hurt them a bit. "it must have served you well..." He took a step back, giving a bit more personal space to the pony in front of him. "Yeah. I haven't heard of many major conflicts that would have to involve an army... Of course, there probably were some issues here and there, but that's not what the army is for." Gray noticed and placed the hoof on his chest with a slight smirk "That's what mercenaries are for. Good or not, we do the job." He did sound a bit cocky, but it was just out of pure playfulness of the stallion. He didn't mean to discredit the army or the guards by any means. They were definitely needed "Yes! I'm going back... Well, you can say home. I call it my HQ" The stallion gave off a slight chuckle "I don't spend a lot of time there, mostly go through my stuff, sort some things out and I am on the road again... But maybe this time I will stay for a bit longer. Who knows?" Gray shrugged and moved the dirt on the road a bit with his hoof "It has been quite some time since I last visited the place. To be honest, I'm not sure if it still technically belongs to be" He chuckled slightly, with a hint of nervousness in his laughter

    Gray tilted his head slightly as she mentioned the manager "Oh. Who runs the shop when you are out? I don't think I ever have seen anyone who ran a place like this, here in Ponyville..." The stallion said, scratching the back of his head a bit, searching his memory for anything that would connect with this place "Well. To be fair, I haven't seen this place before either" He said with ever so slight chuckle. Ponyville was a place Gray visited not very often but had a special connection to, so he enjoyed his time here. "Definitely. Ponyville stands out quite a lot on the background of all those cities like Canterlot... To be honest, I prefer it over them." Gray said with a slight shrug. He preferred the silence to the crowd. "It must be hard to manage all of these jobs..." Gray noticed as he stirred his spook in the empty bowl of ice-cream. He could only imagine how overworked she was. This was something that didn't matter to Gray as he lived a life of Nomad. Not caring to much about work or the problems of tomorrow anymore. But he still could think about the horrific stress he would be under in her place.

    Gray smirked a bit as the pony said that they let them keep the armor. Guess they were a bit luckier wherever they served. Gray kept some pieces of his old armor as well, stashing them in his house, but he was a mercenary. A bodyguard. And this armored belong to him and not an army or something like that. When Elysium cast the illusion onto himself to show the armor Gray took a quick look, tilting his head to the sides a bit, seeing the armor from another point of view "Well... I guess it looks good. Cannot say much, since it was transparent and a bit hard to catch the details of" Gray said after the illusion disappeared. This type of magic was nothing new to him, as he even started to study some illusionary art for himself. Not with great results, but still something "If I may know. Where did you fight?" The stallion asked with curiosity in his voice. He found that topic interesting, and even though his bodyguard days were long behind him, he still had some sort of personal connection to this type of lifestyle. "I highly agree. I hope there will be no reason for me to put on my armor again, too. Well... Not out of necessity at least" He said as the side of his lips twirled up slightly into a smirk. He had two types of memories connected with his equipment. He both remembered his travels, friends and brothers in arms and all the suffering he went through during failed jobs. That was the risk of being a bodyguard. "Well... It was definitely different. Sometimes repeating itself job after job and sometimes throwing anything it can at you to throw you down to your knees. There is no predictability in being a bodyguard..."

    Gray listened to the pony in front of him as they spoke about their city. The name they gave him wasn't a great help for this stallion to decide whether to speak to them as he or she... or maybe something else? He was not used that. Almost everyone he met was easy to recognize from the first glance. It wasn't that easy here... But it was something fresh, something new, something interesting. Maybe a small sort of mystery... "Having a safe place to live in is always nice..." Gray said as he tilted his head a bit. Of course, he wasn't a great fan of just staying in one place, but he appreciated the peace from time to time as much as he appreciated his venturing. "Ah... Yes. Those are probably the biggest cities around here you can find" He said as his hoof raised a bit. When Gray first went away from Canterlot, Manehattan and Hoofington were one of the first cities he visited and they brought him many memories. "Yes... Back in the days..." He chuckled a bit as he realized he sounded like an old pony "I used to fight and I used to get money for that... Maybe not my most glorious days..." The stallion commented on himself. The jobs he took weren't always exciting and full of excitement. Most of the time it would be a simple routine... And weirdly, he remembered more of the routine then of other bits... "You were a soldier?" Gray's eyebrow raised as his hoof pointed at the pony in front of him. They seemed to be quite similar to Gray... Travelers, with military connections... How interesting "Well... Fighting is one of those things that you never forget" He chuckled and shrugged slightly "Well... My fighting days are well past me. Maybe one day I will face a foe for one more time... We will see, I guess" Gray didn't long for a fight, but the thought of standing face to face with danger again filled him both with excitement and disgust. It was a part of him that would always remain split. "Your armor? You kept it? I heard they don't let anypony do that... At least in Equestria..." Gray said and thought for a bit "You don't happen to have like a drawing or picture of it, do you?" He asked.

    "Maratonia..." Gray echoed The traveler. Gray was never personal There but he heard some stories and planned a couple of trips There but never got to it ad other trips took priority "It is quite a place! Heard Many stories about it" Gray said with a warm smile on his face. "Just walking around is one of The best things to do in Equestria. From my perspective, that is" The stallion added. He was a travelers so hearing that someone else liked to just Wander around as well made him happy "Where have you been up until now?" Hearing The name of The castle Gray though for a second. He did know about it. Even wisited it Long time ago, When he just started his travels. But he wasn't sure if he could pin point exact rout to it. "Well.. yes. I know where it is. But it is quite a while from here... A couple of Days of travel on hooves I would say.." He sated after a couple of seconds of silence. "When it comes to The stuff. I can't be Sure. Never inspected it too well. it is a weird place..." When The pony asked about who Gray is, The stallion caughted "Oh, right. I am Gray Shield. A wanderer and ex-bodyguard. Pleasure to meet you..." He said, raising his eyebrow, waiting for whoever they were to introduce themselves

    Gray listened to The stranger with interest. There weren't many ponies he would meet along his travel, So The ones he met, were usually the ones with the most interesting stories. Now Gray took a closer look of The pony in front of him. A defenietly unusual colors and paterns on their body defenietly stood out. Maybe they were a zebra... But they didn't talk in this weird pattern... "So you have never been to Equestria before?" Gray's eyebrow rised. So they were a traveler from really far away... "Where do you come from, if I may ask?" The stallion asked and took a look at the bags of The pony in front of him. They seemed to be full so Gray assumed they came from far away. "Legends you Day?" gray smiled a bit as he nodded a bit "Equestria is filled with legends and tales so you won't have a problem finding them"

    (I though I send reply long ago. I am very sorry for making you wait for so long.) When Ice mentioned Changeling getting their place in her organisation Gray went silent for a second, thinking about it. He wasn't glad to work alongdise those shapeshifters, but it wasn't something that would make him leave without any other reason. The stallion nodded slightly "This should not be a problem..." He started and shrugged a bit "If they joined the organisation that means that they can't be as.... bad?" Gray stopped for a second, thinking of a better Word. Bad and Good was a bit too much of a Black and White word and no one can be only bad or only good "Well. As troublesome as those I met during my Road." Gray noteded the inn as a place he could go to "Thank you. I will give it a try!" he said with a small smile. "So... How long are you planning on staying in Ponyville?" Gray asked, glad that The topic strayed away from Changelings and things like this. He wasn't a great thinker and was no expert in forgein races, So there wasn't much he could be sure about in this topic, other then trying to Sound smart enough.

    Gray continued to look at the pony that was slowly walking ahead of him, steadly getting closer and closer. His Green eyes jumped around a bit, taking some time to look at the bag that they had strapped to their back. They were oviously packed, so maybe they we're travelers just as Gray was. Noticing the pony stop, he squinted and bit and took another close look at them. No weapon, but they were a unicorn. Might be a problem... Gray himself Has a short sword harden inside one of his bags in case something terrible happens, but he usually could do just fine without it. When Gray approached The pony he stopped and smiled Warmly "Good morning..." he said with a stop as he tried to figure Out it he should use miss or mister... But he couldn't Tell so he decided to say nothing at all "What are you doing on this Road? It is getting quite late"

    Gray has been on the road for some time already. Moving his hooves slowly and to the beat of a tune that he was gently humming under his breath to accompany him on this road. This day was no different then the one before and probably no different then tomorrow will be. A Sun shining with a slight breeze that was moving through his messy mane. His target was Hoofington yet again. This old stallion was heading home again for some time. How long he will stay no one knew, not even nim, but probably not for long. So there he was, steadly moving forward with packed pouches on his Back and a slight smile on his face when he noticed a shape moving in the distance. Gray squinted a bit and noticed that it was a pony going the other way. It was every day that Gray found someone on the trail, especially on The roads that long. And without a cart as well... "Who is that?" He Wondered to himself. Maybe a follow adventurer? Or maybe A bandit... Well. He will see for himself soon.

    Arrival at Canterlot (Private)

    Gray chuckled a bit at her joke and smirked "Well. I was surprised at first as well" He answered with the hint of the joke in his voice as well. Gray liked his house and spend some time in it every month or so, but that wasn't what he truly wanted. The stallion used the building for more of a stash, where he would keep some souvenirs, old items or just weird things he found on his way "Well, I do. Just as I am resting for some time here, in Canterlot" He answered and shrugged a bit "Honestly, I rest quite often, spending even weeks sometimes in one place. It is not I am proud of, but I guess my good old days are gone" His voice bore a bit of nostalgia and disappointment. The fact that his life was probably mostly done wasn't a fun thing to think about. "Oh! You are right! It would be a waste!" he said as his memory flashed back. Flowers. The reason he was here. He almost forgot "Well. I will be going then. Thank you for the talk! Maybe we will meet soon" He said as he gave her the warmest smile he could and with a quick intense look on his bags, that were lying on the floor, Gray placed them on his back and slowly went towards the doors, giving his last wave towards Rose

    Arrival at Canterlot (Private)

    Gray agreed with what Rose said. There definitely wasn't something that was truly a norm. But ponies still tend to make fun of someone that wasn't up to this... norm. The stallion looked up, pointing his gaze at the falling stripes of his messy mane. "True... That doesn't stop others from judging you, though" He said before shrugging a bit and going back to his cheerful expression. He did hear her saying that she would never admit to that but didn't reply, giving only a very brief chuckle as a response. The smile that sprung on mare's face once again proved to Gray that she wasn't quite like other ponies he met here. But, as they established earlier, he was not the one to judge. "Oh. I actually have a house as well. It's on the outskirts of hoofington." The stallion stated as Rose mentioned her home "I don't go there quite often, but it is still standing and still mine... I think" He smirked a bit. Quite a lot of time passed since Gray went to his house, but it wasn't because he didn't like it. He just felt that spending there too much time was just... a waste. When Rose told him that he will keep him in mind Gray chuckled a bit and smiled "Well thank you. Not many do. You know... Since I come and go" He said as his eyes directed towards the bags, that were lying on the floor.

    Gray kept on nodding a bit as he listened to the mare. It wasn't that he disagreed with her. But the fact that sometimes that the trust someone puts into a new pony they meet can be easily ruined and changelings were a... outstanding species. "The fact is, that we have already started the cycle. Maybe not you, maybe not me, maybe not anyone in Ponyville. But some ponies started to hate changelings. And they might have a good reason to. If someone robbed you, killed someone you love or hurt you, you wouldn't greet them as friends, and you would probably be wary of their family as well." Gray stated. He may have not had such bad memories with changelings, but they had some rough past. "So, now, since a lot of us have those bad memories in the back of our head..." Gray said, pointing with his hoof to his head "... and sometimes intentionally, sometimes not we move just a bit further away from any changeling that we pass" The stallion said and sight " Now if I am not proud of this, but I prefer to stay a bit further away from changelings. And I know this is a bit, not- okay since... Well." Gray chuckled a bit and looked at himself, all dirty and messy "Ponies tend to stay away from me as well. But it is just something that makes me feel more in control of the situation that is around me." Gray exhaled his breath and shook his head "This talk turned quite... serious." He smiled slightly and looked up at the mare "I was wondering. Are there any good places to rent for sleep in ponyville?" He asked, trying to change the subject a bit with a small smile o his face.

    Gray nodded a bit, hearing her agree with his observation about her and roses. That was defenietly something he enjoyed in ponies. Seeing them take fun out of those little things in life. And sometimes, looking at ponies like that, this old stallion though to himself that maybe it is time to settle down, stop chasing after something that is out of his reach and just... focus only on the smaller things. "Well. The ponies here are weird... At least for me. Well.. to be honest I am quite a weird pony myself, so I am not sure if I can really judge" Gray shrugged a bit and smirked slightly. He didn't mind being different and standing out. As long as not too much attenction was drawn to him, he was all right. Hearing the mare torn Gray couldn't help but chuckle a bit "I am glad I managed to make you think about that. And I think you don't need any advise, even if you wanted to." Gray said and looked around the shop "I don't know you too well so I am not sure what values you truly have, but... I hope whatever you chose will be a right decision for you." Gray smiled towards her with a warmest smile he could "The life of a nomad is not easy but it has its pluses. If you will choose to go into the world and leave this place behind... Maybe I can help you somehow. Its not hard to find me."

    "Not mencion her horn... Noted." Gray smiled a bit. It seemed easy enough even though this stallion was quite a curious pony. Well, he will have to get his knowlage somewhere else then. It didn't seem like he was moved by the last part of Ice's warning. Many times something like this happened before, so it wasn't anything suprising to him. Hearing the mare agree to his waryness Gray nodded and smirked "Defenietly agreed. Sometimes it is not a good thing to trust someone..." He responded. His past with both changlings and other races was quite... not-stable. With its ups and downs, Gray had moments of fun as well as madness in almost every type of creature he met. But changlings were this weird exception that mostly got on his bad side. Maybe it was becouse Gray wasn't really trying to communicate with them, maybe he just wasn't in the right place... Who knows? "I understand your point, however it is hard to keep peace between all the races in Equestria. With so many different views and so many races this place is bound to have conflict. Smaller, bigger, doesn't matter, we probably can't do much about it" The stallion shrugged a bit "But we can try to minimize the damage and try to keep as many places happy as we can. And if we can't keep them joyful and uneger to fight with us, than there are organiziation for that, right?" Gray gave Ice a little smirk. He didn't think that war was needed or he enjoyed it. For him it only brought destruction and pain rather then any good. But.. sometimes war was just the best option
