PostSubject: A Carriage Trip Down Memory Lane   Sun Jan 17, 2016 1:28 pm

First topic message reminder :

Tod and Yoren, on their way to Kevranstown, begin the journey with silence. It was not precisely a silence of discomfort, and it was not precisely discomforting; yet the silence was evocative of suppressed words, and this lent the journey some awkwardness of its own. Neither of the pair exactly wanted to speak -- nor did they need to speak, having nothing to say and not much in the way of companionship at all. Or, at least, that's what the silence between them would suggest. Each occupied himself for a while with some other manner of activity, until the thoughts borne of the silence grew too heavy upon the minds of one of them...

A few people already give him suspicious looks.

Yoren decides it's time to get out while the getting's good. He starts making his way to the nearest exit.

The night had gone better after that. Elene had applauded his performance and levelheadedness, and she'd seemed proud of the attention he'd gained, rather than disappointed. At the time, Yoren had been entranced by her.

Now, sitting in the carriage to Kevranstown, it isn't Elene's face that comes back to him. It's Lady Silveti's. Her look of fear, of dismay, of sheer, mortal knowledge that she was going to die.

Perhaps she had had no other choice? Perhaps it hadn't been her fault? Perhaps she didn't want to die? But did any of that matter?


Regardless, it was brave of her. She must have known it was coming. And yet... She faced it as calmly as anyone could, on such short notice. Her look of fear, of surprise... It is reminiscent of Ina, when she was attacked in her childhood.

Yoren blinks to dispel the memories, and shivers despite the coat.

It's snowing outside. It's also much darker than it had been. Time has been flying by. In fact, the carriage slows to a stop outside a sort of stable thing.

"I believe this is where we rest for the night. ...Are you feeling quite well?"

"The tale?" Tod blinks, face blank. Finally, he nods in comprehension. "Ah, the memory you recalled to me a few hours ago? Yes, I can understand that."

"Yes." He flips open his new pocketwatch. "Two hours and thirty-nine minutes."

Tod glances with concern at Yoren, though he masks it shortly. "Perhaps some sleep will help. I know you claim to not need sleep, but... I urge you to try."

Tod blushes suddenly. "I have... magical abilities based on reading old texts... There's an old bedtime story I picked up, and I'm sure if I were to read it I could... lure anyone to sleep..." His face is a frightening shade of crimson. "O-or not; I don't mean to disturb you."

Yoren grins despite himself. "Perhaps... perhaps a bit of sleep will help. I burned a considerable amount of the power I had stored. Foolishly."

"What is power for, if not to be used?"

"And events happened, no? Therefore using it wasn't foolish. If you store it forever, it's wasted."

Tod nods thoughtfully. They enter the inn.

And now it is that Yoren recalls why he abandoned sleeping as a rule.

He stands... On the porch of his childhood home, over the still-warm corpse of his mother. Usually, Hanzo is just down the walkway, on his way to stabbing his daughter.

But this time... Something is different. As Yoren's dream shifts from the porch down the path to the garden, he sees another body. One that, in the waking world, ought not be there. One that wasn't there, in reality or when this dream was almost nightly.

There lays the small, glass-eyed staring body of his sister.

Her eyes seem to be fixedly staring directly at Yoren. Cold, golden eyes, her mouth half open, frozen in a scream.

Hanzo is standing a few feet away, cleaning off his knife.

---

Yoren wakes violently, his body rigid and covered in a cold sweat.

He breathes an unsteady sigh and gets out of bed to make a cup of coffee, with Ina's eyes still frozen dead in his mind.

Tod is not present in the room for some reason.

Yoren drinks down the coffee in a few swallows and makes more.

He sits down on a chair next to the window and tries to calm down.

Shortly, the sun rises, the light spilling across the glistening white horizon. Tod enters the room soon after, looking as if he'd just come outside, as evidenced by the wet drops on the shoulders of his coat. "Good morning."

"Good morning." Yoren mutters. "Where've you been?"

"Ah. You're ready to head off, then?"

Yoren scowls discontentedly at his coffee mug and reaches to refill it.

Tod shrugs. "I was finding something to do while you were still asleep."
