[ She's awful at cold contacting people over this blasted device. If she had her choice, she'd leave it at the green check mark and be done with it, but that seems cold. And this man is from a place called Hell's Kitchen. If that doesn't sound like a place where a man learns how to use his fists before breakfast, then she's next in line to take up the cloth. She starts and stops several times before she finally just gives up and hits send. ]

I'm new to Eudio, and looking for a sparring partner. Someone who knows how to fight, and not just for sport. With a name like Murdock, I can't help but wonder if that idea sounds at all appealing to you.

[ The blinking icon on her phone perplexes her for a moment, until she remembers, they do voice messaging here as well. BRILLIANT. She listens to his note, her eyes narrowing as she listens to his gentlemanly accent. It takes her another moment to figure out how to answer in kind. Voice is so much better than texting. ]

Mister Murdock, a pleasure to hear from you. My name is Captain Ariadne Wednesday, but I go by Ari these days.

[ Her voice is deep for a woman's, and touched with an accent that is posh English, with a hint of something else. Arabic perhaps? Latin? Something strange. In the background, he can hear she's sitting on a windowsill overlooking a street, probably in one of Eudio's many small flats. ]

I would be pleased to meet you for a round or three, say this week sometime? I've yet to find someone willing to exchange proper blows, and you'll forgive me but -- the meanest man I ever knew in my life went by the name of Murdock. He hit like the fist of Hephaestaus, which is excellent motivation to learn to dodge and block, if you catch my meaning. That's why your name caught my eye. Maybe we can teach each other a thing or two, hmm? I look forward to hearing from you, either way. Until later.

[ She laughs, rich and low. Why does everyone fixate on her title? She's going to have to remember to drop it in the future. ]

Excellent. Do you have a space you like to practice in? Somewhere I might meet you?

And to answer your question, I am Captain of a ship, and no, I'm not even remotely military. You may call me Captain if you like, but I leave the other option open to you.

[ She likes his voice. And his modesty. It's not something she'd expect from a man who put 'boxing' on a list of defining traits. ]

I'm looking forward to meeting you, Mister Murdock. At your leisure.

[ He can hear the smile in her voice. She's missed a little rough and tumble. ]

[ A jim? What's a -- oh he probably means a gymnasium. Right. ]

As you will. Matt.

[ Will this awkwardness never end? No, this is the life of a traveler, Ari. You get out of your wheelhouse, make new friends, try not to bloody their noses too badly. And anyway, it's refreshing to meet people who only know you by reputation, isn't it? ]

How does tomorrow evening work for you?
