Alphonsus is an upstanding Citizen


[Medonia] We built this city (Bolthur)

A few brightenings after his event.

As spoken in a few brightenings ago, a white haired, laid-back 7 foot muscular human strolled into the Constabulary where Alphonsus worked and Bolthur resided. He grinned revealing half of his missing teeth when he saw a tent more suitable for a carnival behind the building of law enforcement. This man was George Dan, or as many workers under his care called him, Boss Jordan.

Boss Jordan wasn't sure what the protocol here and like many, did not like to be around a place of law enforcers. No one have nothing to hide in their heart after all. Then he heard it, the song of a harp playing on the second floor. His contact was here and he entered the constabulary to look for him.

After a short chat, the bard and Boss Jordan went in search of the giant.

Bolthur is unknown and forgotten
The suns were shining that late summer morning as Boss Jordan made his way to the Constabulary to meet with Alphonsus and Bolthur. After his brief conversation with the elf, Boss Jordan went in search of the giant that would begin working with him. When the large (for a human) man finally searched the tent that was serving as Bolthur's home, he would find the giant still sound asleep. Unlike the other races in the world, giants required a few more candlemarks of sleep each brightening.

Boss Jordan would be able to conclude that Bolthur was having a nightmare based on how the giant would toss this way and that, occasionally muttering something unintelligible. It probably wasn't an unusual sight, though. Bolthur couldn't remember the last time he'd had a completely restful slumber; it seemed that his sleep had been plagued by nightmares for at least an era or two. This presented an odd situation for Boss Jordan, though. He could wait for Bolthur to wake on his own, or he could risk startling the giant by waking him up now.

Boss Jordan decided to wait for the giant to awaken naturally. It might be a few more minutes or a few more candlemarks, but it didn't matter. He took out a brown leather bound book and started drawing on it.

Once the giant awakened, Boss Jordan closed the books and greeted him. "Serale Bolthur. Raise and shine young 'un. 'Tis brightening, we will see how roads are built and laid. Go get ready and off we go!"

While waiting for Boltur to be ready, he reopened his book and starting drawing on it again. If the giant were to take a peep, Boss Jordan seemed to be designing a odd shaped building.

Luckily for Boss Jordan, Bolthur didn't sleep much longer. Due to the constant nightmares, the giant's tossing and turning prevented him from enjoying a deep, satisfying slumber. Bolthur remained lying on his back, and rubbed his eyes for at least a minute. He then stretched (as much as a giant could within the confines of a tent) before sitting up. It was then that he was greeted by the voice of Boss Jordan. Bolthur turned a sleepy gaze upon the human, and grunted in reply. He was awake, but he wasn't particularly ready to be sociable yet. Lucky for Bolthur, construction workers weren't known for their impeccable manners.

In the next half-candlemark or so, Bolthur went about his morning routine. Once he was dressed, clean, and fed did his mood begin to improve . . . although, as Alphonsus had mentioned the quality of the food wasn't stellar. Still, he had food in his belly regardless of how much he wished for "real" food.

"Serale, Boss Jordan. Let's get to work." Bolthur said, as the last remnants of sluggishness faded away with the morning light.

The seven foot man nodded and packed everything into his backpack. He took out a thick bounded book, then he looked at the giant, then back at the book, and finally back at the giant again. He shrugged as he kept the book away as well. "We will need something bigger for you to write on in the future."

"Alright. As spoken with Alphonsus, we do not want to waste ya size and talent on learning the basic stuff." Boss Jordan exited the tent and waited for Bolthur to appear. "Basic stuff like cuttin' stone to size, makin' planks, mixing glue and the likes. We hire people to do that. Although, I'll still show ya how to do them."

He allowed the giant to think on what he said while he stretched himself in the sun. He looked down, seeing only feet, he quickly looked up. "Need to get use to ya height. Anyway, we will be learning how to draw things to build. How to build roads. How to make a smaller version of buildings, then move on to building and inspecting the proper one. Along the way, you'll learn the other basic skills of carpentry and masonry. So, what do you want to start on first? Making roads or drawing buildings first?"
