It had gotten boring fast and was slightly distracted when Chayial finally answered. He seemed to tilt a brow and stop with the licking of his foot. When had he done that? Damn these natural instincts. The cat then sort of smiled but it was the wink at what she said. Then with no more he jumped off the chair and trotted over to one of the tables closer to the hearth nearest the door.

With swift movements he jumped from floor to chair to table to the small recess that served as the mantle on the hearth. He then proceeded to lay down and watch everyone. Tail hanging over and twitching back and forth. He sniffed the air and swore he smelled an animal. Yet all he saw was human like creatures. No animals.

Yet he swore he smelled one. He ignored it and filed it away as another annoying cat trait

His pulling of her head back brought forth a gasp of surprise and slight pain despite herself. Fingers that had been lightly caressing flattened against his chest as if to push him from her in defense, but as he laid her back and claimed her, her rigid posture settled easily into the mattress and she fought him no longer.

When Barlow left, Chayial left out a sigh of relief. She could handle four coppers. She gazed once more at the stairs where the man with blood red hair had gone up. Then, she was startled out of her reverie when the cat jumped into the chair across frlom hers. Her silver slivered azure eyes gazed back a thim curiously. Then, she smiled.

"Very entertaining," She mused softly at the cat. "Gave him a little of what he deserved...."

The elf kept a close watch on Emerald even though she was constantly looking at Alexia. Her smile, gentle and warm, never wavered. In the back of her mind, she could hear her father, mother, and sisters' exclaiming shame and astonishment that she would be associating with a human. But she was at ease. She saw that this girl was just as lonely as she.Read more...Collapse )

So far in her young life (afterall, she hadn't reached her first century yet), she had seen her family murdered, had survived several attempts on her life by several different races, and now...

Now, she was on the Surface, staring with squinting eyes up at the winter moon and its starfilled sky. It hurt. She figured it would always hurt. Yet, she preferred this kind of pain to the blazing sun, or to the whips and shackles of her younger years.

Angelina hesitated not at all as Wulfgan grasped her hand and led her away. Yes, she'd equipment downstairs, but another glance to Petrea, to her helm and sword, and back to the girl again would be enough to suggest she wanted them placed in her room. Gods forbid the girl dare to draw it, however, and the dark knight smirked at the thought. However, it didn't remain in her mind long.

 The crash of glass and the sound of scraping snatched my attention from the door. As I make my was around the backside of the building to the noises, raised voices are heard "go, go, go!!!". Rounding the corner, my eyes see the figure hit the ground and take off running, the very same figure I initially spied in the woods. A quick glimpse over his shoulder and he sees me in pursuit. He heads for the river beyond the stables....then suddenly he dashes into the open stable door....I keep running past and see he has jumped on a horse and is about to head out the other end. I continue on the outside of the stable to the other exit...My timing must be perfect...."Hay bales...perfect....I run and jump onto the hay bales then hurl my body toward the exit. The figure and the horse heading to the exit from within, my body meets his square in the shoulder knocking him from the stolen mount. We tumble to the ground and I draw my ruby dagger and thrust it into his shirt just above his shoulder, pinning him to the ground. "Hold!! You are under arrest by order of the King!!" The vagrant looking wild eyed and confused by his new perdicament utters "what is my crime?"..."Other than the horse you just stole, you are charged with theft from the King's Court". "Are you serious??" he quips..."For bread? I am to be arrested for bread to feed my family?....It is the King that has committed the crime my Lord".

His words puzzle me for a moment, he does not struggle, this is not the action of a liar. I look into his eyes and see the truth in his words. "I am getting off you vagrant...do not run or I will not hesitate to execute you quicky". He nods in agreement and find his way to his feet after I remove my dagger and sheathe it. "You said a family is why you stole the bread?" He says "yes My Lord, my family is poor, I was a blacksmith in the village outside the kingdom, but since the taxation, and the lack of business, I cannot care for my family". "So you resort to thievery??"...he repsonds "I had no choice my Lord...(glancing at the handle of my dagger) Your dagger My Lord...where did you get it?" ... I ask "why the curiosity in my dagger?" .."because I made that dagger My Lord", he says.
"Liar!!..this dagger was a gift of the King himself....keep well your word vagrant or you will feel this dagger at your throat!"..Gently the vagrant reaches for a patch of metal around a chain on his neck "Look my Lord, the engraving on my necklace, it is my mark...no look at the end of the handle on your dagger, I beg you it be the very same". Indeed it was as I glance at the engraving and my dagger.

Warmth. It filled his every being. It had been cold that day and as he stood in front of the hearth in the common room he inhaled. The monestary was quiet this day as everyone was off learning or teaching. It was early on. The Rever were just being created and he inhaled glancing towards one of the doorways that led to this room. He could hear the footsteps of someone approaching. Gently he sat down the brown robes falling about him. The fire danced and he watched the flames continue in their great pattern.

Then the footfalls were closer and stopped behind the high backed chair he sat in. For this time it was wooden and only a soft cushion to sit upon. A throne for this era of time but in any other it would have been just a chair. He watched the flames for the longest moment and not a word spoken between the two figures.

"Getting cold in the mountains" His voice was distant as he stared at the fire. The voice behind him younger in years spoke softly also seeming to be contemplating something. "As I heard from the others. You know the future Yver. Why do you continue to pretend it is not coming?"

He inhaled softly and moved a hand along the wood. The chair was new. It hadn't been worn by ages of sitting yet. "I refuse to believe that the future is so sure Wrev. We created everything hear with the others. Why would we abandon it? Why would you and I even become those ghastly creatures we create to protect us? It makes no sense to me and I shall not bide but such thoughts. " He then turned in his chair to stare at Wrev. Younger then him but both were nearly a hundred years old as it was.

Wrev frowned something that had gathered upon the young mans face too often. "You shall see Yver. While you may deny the future I shall not" He then turned and the first hint of the future appeared. For as he had turned Wrev's monk browns had turned a hunter green. Yver inhaled and shook his head glancing at his clothes. They were still brown but he knew the signs of blue had appeared. They were signs no more. He stared at the fire for a moment longer before he rose and drifted towards his room.

I have completed the map of the second floor of the Inn in case anyone wants to use it for reference. It is posted on the journal with the other links but here it is also:

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b284/onlyarose/crossroadsinn2.jpg

One note is that the courtyard will not appear this way the first night. Barlow has not hired anyone yet to clear off the grass that overgrew it but will the next day. Another thing on his to do list. *grins*

If anyone wants to know where their characters room is check the above map against this list.

Room 1 Amulus & Talus
Room 2 Chayial
Room 3 empty
Room 4 Nyna
Room 5 Selene
Room 6 Myrwulf
Room 7 empty
Room 8 Angelina
Room 9 Wulfgan & men

As you can see we almost have a full house and so may have to start a map for the third floor soon!

I will also be posting a new map of the common room (after Barlow's changes) and eventually maps of the town and realm soon. Suggestions are welcomed.

The crusader smirked at his words and it deepened as he raised a hand to sample her hair. Let him keep his pride, she decided, as she had much more entertaining things to take of him in a few moments.
