PostSubject: Clock Tower Suites   Fri Sep 04, 2015 5:28 pm

An antique tower on the north corner of the city which has a massive clock set into it so that it can be seen from a great distance. The inside has belonged to many noble families over the years, and has served many purposes, including arena, cathedral, stage, bank, mob base, arena again, and is finally a luxury suite. Thankfully, there is no ticking on the clock, and each floor of the tower is luxuriously furnished.

Leticia runs into the room excitedly, clutching the money she got from Tod.

Ina walks in behind her. "Ooooh, this is very nice."

"So shiny!"

"Oh, look at the beds! They're so soft!"

Leticia takes a running leap and collapses into softness.

Ina flops onto a bed as well.

"Uhhhhhm this is the most comfortable thing I've ever been on...."

For the time being, the two reside in Berkshire. Their activities around Berkshire from this point on may not be chronologically significant, so the [continued] thing will end, to pick up again when they next hit the road.

The two girls sleep well until about midmorning. Or so it would appear. In the mind of Ina Zylanzi, however, there is pain near unto dying.

In her dream, Ina has been beaten severely by a man she doesn't know is likely dead or rotting in some hole by now. In her dream, her father is very much there, and very much angry. He broke out the lash again, for some reason. Maybe his coffee didn't taste right. Maybe he just loved hearing Ina scream and beg for it to stop. But it didn't stop, not until she awakes in her bed in the Berkshire inn, screaming and covered in sweat.

Leticia, in her half-asleep trance, covers her ears. "Go away, you demonic owls!" she mumbles, turning over on the cushioned bed.

The bed gives comfortably under her shifting body, and she falls into the cushion with a yelp. This isn't the bed of leaves she hid away in the treehouse she built. Which means that the screaming isn't coming from the demon owls. Ina's being attacked by something. The shadow creatures! Oh, why did I extinguish the lamps?! They could be anywhere in this room now! They've got Ina, but I can still escape!

Leticia squashes her survival instinct and instead looks for her friend. Her eyes focus in the darkness to the point where Leticia can make out the bed on which Ina went to sleep. And the hulking shadow above it.

"Ina!" Leticia screams, noticing her friend being attacked by a great shadowy figure, a great looming Dracula, fangs glinting in the light from outside. Thinking quickly, Leticia hurries to where she set her flamethrower.

She hurls a tongue of flame at the shadow, which dissipates with a crackle of menacing laughter. "Ina, are you okay? Did he hurt you?"

The shadow is now gone, the room lightened by the flames that now dance on the walls.

((NOTE: There wasn't a Shadow Monster, this was just Leticia's imagination playing tricks on her.))

Ina shakes violently. She's sobbing silently and whimpering quietly.

She seems incapable of speech at the moment, due to the shock.

Oh, Light. It's sucked the soul from her body. Or maybe I killed it before it could finish, so it only did partially. But... I don't know how to repair souls...

Leticia starts crying, partially from fear and partially from the smoke filling the room.

When she notices the smoke, she leaps up again. Fire safety is something she knows. This isn't a forest fire - there are four closed walls around her, for one thing, which makes procedure different - but she can still manage. First things first: she has to get Ina out of the burning room.

The problem is that Ina is so much bigger than Leticia.

Ina stirs only slightly, and at any touch, perceived or real, says "No...more. Please...stop. I'm SORRY!"

Seems she's still dazed from the dream, and the smoke sure doesn't help.

Leticia gives up and lies sobbing on the floor beside Ina's bed.

Suddenly, an idea comes to her. If she can just... reach... the ramp...

Twenty minutes, three explosions, four objects thrown out various windows, and a city-wide emergency bell later, Leticia pushes Ina down the ramp in a makeshift cart that hopefully will not injure her when it lands.

Leticia collapses at the top of the stairs, exhausted.

The ceiling collapses.

All is dark.

Ina continues mumbling mostly inchorent apologies to something.

Leticia, barely conscious, drags herself to the stairs and allows herself to tumble down them.

She ends up sprawled next to where Ina landed.

The noise of Leticia falling seems to rouse Ina from her stupor, at which she asked "whappen?"

Ina would be able to see fire and destruction above, as the grand Clock Tower falls.

The clock plummets to the side, then stops, as if suspended by magic. The burning stops. The screaming of people all around doesn't stop.

A lady wearing a simple black and white outfit approaches Ina. "Do you require healing?" she asks.

Ina has only minor cuts and bruises, so she replies "No. Please, look after my friend first." She gestures at Leticia.

The woman looks down to see Leticia's crumpled form. With a small gasp of alarm, the woman kneels, then clasps her hands over Leticia's head, mutters a brief orison, and stands. "I have done what I can for her. The worse her injuries, the longer before she wakes. Now let me tend to you." Repeating the prayer, the woman heals Ina.

"Thank you, ma'am. Is... Is Leticia going to be okay?"

"Thank you."

Ina sits down by Leticia and gingerly takes Leticia's hand in her own.

Leticia's eyes open at Ina's touch.

"Did I... get to you... in time?"

"I'm fine." Ina says, and squeezes her hand gently. "Just...just a stupid nightmare I haven't had since I was really little..."

"So Dracula didn't... eat your soul? ...I burned him in time... good..." Leticia's eyes close again, softly, and her breathing becomes peaceful.

The sky lightens, the sun about to rise. A man in a finely tailored suit comes up to Ina sometime later. "My sources tell me that this woman is the one who started the fire. On behalf of my master and employer, I must thank her. See that she receives this payment." He hands Ina a bag of gold, then walks carefully and deliberately into an alleyway around the street.

The owner of the inn comes up to Ina and Leticia a short time later, with all their belongings retrieved from their floor. "Thank you so much. With the insurance money I can finally retire. I owe you. The title deed's yours, if you want the property, or you can sell it and get some money. I should warn you, though." He looks around shiftily. "If you're going to sell it, make sure it's not to anyone who owns land on the northern district."

For her part, Leticia drifts in and out of wakefulness during this perplexing aftermath.

Ina tucks the deed and gold away, resolving to give them to Leticia when she wakes fully later.
