Alvaro heard Blaze scream at him from the street. The point, however, wasn't to escape, but to simply survive through any means neccessary. Alvaro then noticed Blaze run out of the tavern, who he could tell was fuming. Alvaro then ran to catch up with him, but some angry bar patrons attacked him. Alvaro simply unsheathed his sword, and stabbed and slashed his assailants, killing them, but spilling blood in the street at the same time. He then ran to ctach up with Blaze, and levelled his blood-stained sword to Blaze's throat from behind.
"You are now part of my crew. Go to my ship. I will tell you the purpose of you joining once we are there." Alvaro kept a threatening undertone to his voice.
