Anubis gave a half smile before turning back to the owner, "Well what do you say, old man." The owner nodded and motioned for the duo to wait as he went to the rear of the store. Not more than a minute later he reappeared from the back with a little bag. "This is some stuff I use when I'm hunting deer. Strong enough to put an adult deer out for several hours, should be more than enough to put down a large bird. Get the bird to eat it and it should drop quickly. Now in regards to my request, I got the packs already prepped. Each bag has about several weeks worth of supplies, which covers the month if they ration it properly. Just get the stuff there before nightfall and bring me back a signature from the outpost's captain. Simple enough." Anubis nodded while taking the small bag, "Fair enough, where are these packs," he asked while taking a look at the contents of the bag. It was definitely dead insects, but it had a very strong odor coming from it. His nose wrinkling at the scent, he assumed maybe the smell was more endearing to birds. "The bags are prepped around back. I can't have you two walking through my kitchen in the back so you will need to go to the rear of the building itself. Everything you need is already there, see you both when you get back," the owner answered before being called by one of his employees for assistance.
"Well, we have what we came for," Anubis said turning to his partner, "Let's wrap this up quickly. I'd hate to keep you tied up all day." With that he exited the shop and looked around to the rear of the shop. There near the rear door was a two large bookbags, to which he immediately grabbed one. He then looked towards the direction of where the ostrich was spotted. Before taking off he half turned toward Kannagi, his mind on the last question she asked before entering the shop. He had, at first, ignored it as he didn't like going to much into detail on his brother. However he did invite the question by making a mention of him, "My brother doesn't reside within the village anymore. Our paths took us different directions, but last I heard from him he was traveling the land. The idea of being resigned to one place didn't really sit well with him after we escaped our past life," he spoke plainly, "Don't pity us, though. We all have to play the cards we were dealt, and we both have made the best of a shitty deal." He made sure to keep any irritation in his tone, he honestly wasn't. However, Anubis wanted to ensure he garnered no sympathy due to his past. It was what it was. Without offering a chance for Kannagi to reply, he rushed off easily scaling the nearby building by simply running up the walls and made his way towards his goal.
He arrived with little effort to the location, area that was mostly cleared of people due to the Animal; only a select few choosing to continue on with their day as normal. Almost immediately, Anubis spotted the bird pecking at the ground in search of worms or smaller insects. "Good, it's hungry," he thought as he pulled the bag of insects from his waist and pulled out a handful. He then jumped from the rooftops and landed in the open, giving a little whistle to catch the birds attention. The ostrich jerked it's head up and looked to be ready to run when Anubis held up the fistful of insects for the bird to see. It squawked a few times before slowly approaching, Anubis offering words of encouragement in a welcoming tone. Once it was close enough, though still a little hesitant, the bird began to eat the insects from Anubis' hand. "There you go, you filthy shit," he said sweetly to keep the bird relaxed, slowly caressing it's head. Within only half a minute of finishing the feed, the ostrich slowly settled down and played on the ground and soon after was in a deep sleep.
"Well, that was simple enough," he said as he hoisted up the heavy bird, the weight plus the weight of the pack having an immediate impact on his ability to move. Luckily, with them taking on another mission that would lead them out the village it would be simple releasing the bird into the wild. "We aren't far from the front gates, I figure we I can carry this big fucker out of the village." He paused only a moment before beginning the trek out the village, "I'm actually curious about something, if you would humor me. You've heard pieces of my story, what about your own. From the outside looking in, you appear to have a good energy about you. I'm curious if your own background reflects equally on your character." He didn't cease in his trek towards the village exit, assuming Kannagi was following.
