The sun was already below the horizon as Armstrong led the way to Trost District. After Arystar had left him and Miranda to go seek out things on his own, the Major and his companions went off on their own as well. His hope was to be able to get back to Briggs soon. While he was no longer in his home of Amestris, that didn't mean that he didn't have duties to his fellow soldiers who were here in this world. He needed to, at the very least, drop by.

But, the journey to Briggs needed to be left for another day. For now, they needed to find somewhere to rest for the night. Trost District was the closest settlement to them once the sun started to set, and so Armstrong had gone mildly off course to reach it. It was getting quite dark now, with the moon beginning to show and the sun no longer around, but it wasn't too late to find evening accommodations.

"We're almost there," he announced to Miranda and Pikachu.

The statement was almost unneeded. The wall loomed over them, blocking up the moon and some of the stars, and casting a deep shadow over them. Even so, it didn't intimidate Armstrong. In fact, he could practically feel in the air how the building was created to protect.

The gateway looked like it was ushering in the last travelers as well. It looked like they had made it just in time.

Miranda stifled a yawn and rubbed a gloved hand over one of her eyes. "That's... that's good," she mumbled in reply. They had done so much walking today and she was feeling tired. Some exorcists could walk for hours on end, but they were far more athletic than her. And while one of her talents that set her apart from her friends in the Order was the ability to stay awake for days, she could only really do that if she was seriously worrying about something or focusing on using her Time Record.

She and Pikachu looked up at the tall wall, which blocked most of their view of the night sky. Clearly, it was meant to protect what was inside, while keeping out a particular kind of danger.

"We should hurry on in... before the gate closes." Miranda wasn't keen on the idea of staying outside at night. While she and her friends had done that before during their travels, she felt uneasy at the idea that there might be something so dangerous out here that this settlement required such a wall to keep them out. Maybe the Goddess had been nice and left those dangers back in the world Trost District was from, but... you know...

Armstrong nodded. If the gate was going to close for the evening, which it looked like it was, he wanted to be on the other side of it. Otherwise, they were going to have to look for somewhere else to stay for the night, and he wasn't sure how much farther his companions would be able to walk. It would be another long distance more on foot to get to the next nearest settlement.

He got to where the gatekeepers were and approached one. "Party of three," he said, seeing as the man had a clipboard. It didn't look like he needed any personal information from what Armstrong was able to spy on his clipboard. It only looked like he was trying to keep track of how many people were coming in at this late hour. Probably in case there were crimes, so the authorities would be able to track a party of the suspected number.

The man glanced at Armstrong and then at Miranda and Pikachu. He scribbled something down before pointing his pen at the gate. "Hurry on in," he said. "We're closing up in about fifteen minutes."

Armstrong nodded before leading his group inside. At least now that they were in the walls, he felt better.

"We needed to find somewhere to stay," he said. If all else failed, they could sleep outdoors. Armstrong didn't mind that so much. Sometimes, it was necessary.

When they approached the gate, there was someone there, writing things down. Miranda assumed he was keeping track of visitors, and it wasn't long before she and her two friends were through the gate. She felt quite relieved to be on the other side of that wall. It actually felt a lot safer in here, even if she knew that there was a chance that the danger the wall had been built to protect against might not even be in this world at all.

There were plenty of other things out there that were dangerous. If Miranda had been living by herself on this planet, with no friends to travel around with, she'd probably stay home until someone from the Order found her.

"Maybe there's an inn nearby?" she suggested. "I wish I had a map of this place..." Throughout their travels, Miranda had been acquiring maps of different areas in the world and they had proven to be quite useful. But they hadn't spent enough time here previously for her to buy one.

The atmosphere inside of the district was quite nice. Armstrong wondered if part of that was because they didn't have to deal with the large titan creatures he heard about, for which the walls that surrounded the town were built to keep out. He wasn't sure how he would like to live in a world with such creatures hounding settlements on a regular basis. He came equipped with alchemy but it didn't seem like that was the case with that world. It would make things all the harder for them.

He was thankful on their behalf that while they were whisked away to another world, they were in one where the usual threats back home weren't plaguing them. At least for their time here, they were being given a reprieve.

"I do wish as well," Armstrong said in reply to Miranda. A map would be nice. It would certainly help them find their way around. "As compensation though, I do come with a distinct sense of direction that can only be found PASSED DOWN THROUGH THE ARMSTRONG FAMILY FOR GENERATIONS." He coughed into his hand, as if covering up the rising in his voice.

"Follow me," he added more calmly before he started down the street.

Miranda didn't even blink when she noticed the rise in volume in Armstrong's voice. By now, she was so used to it that it was normal for her. The Major was especially loud during times of battle, but she had realized that they haven't been drawn into a lot of fights lately. That was something she was glad for; despite being an exorcist who should be used to battle, she preferred not being in them at all.

"Okay," she smiled at him before they headed off down the street. Pikachu waited until her human companions were walking side by side, then sprung from Miranda's shoulder to grab onto Armstrong's arm, gripping his sleeve. The Electric-type then climbed up to sit on his shoulder. Armstrong was a lot taller than Miranda, so Pikachu was able to see the town better from up here.
