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...

He takes it. Takes a bite.

His eyes widen slightly, and his already pale face grows even paler. He spits the chunk of roll to the side.

"Hmmm. Don't eat anymore of those. In fact, avoid eating anything at all."

"Whaa? Is it... poison?!!"

"From what I can tell. I'm, honestly, no expert on poisons. Study them in my spare time, occasionally dose myself with light ones to increase tolerance. Helps the boredom. This seems to be fairly light, slow acting."

"Too much? Too little... Geh... Elene said everyone here, but..."

"We have to warn everyone! Alert the healers!" Lady Pia looks noticeably distressed.

"Hey now, calm down. The more excited you get, the faster your heart pumps, the quicker it spreads and the quicker you start feeling it. You need to sit down, maybe get somekinda antidote... C'mon, at least sit down. You'll regret it if you don't. I'll see if I've got anything that'll help here in my coat, then I'll go round up some of the healers, alright?"

Of course, he has no such intentions of getting healers... Maybe. He's starting to doubt the validity of such wholesale slaughter.

Lady Pia sits down. She fishes in her purse for something, which she pours into her lemonade and drinks.

She quickly regains composure. "If it's poison, then Lord Helmley must have rounded us all here to kill as many as possible." She grabs a communication device out of her purse and starts to call the authorities and Healers.

"Oh course, we can't save everyone," she comments as she waits for the call to be picked up. "That would be a wasted opportunity."

"...Right."

He reaches into a pocket on the inside of his coat and pulls out a vial of blue-looking liquid.

"Drink this, it'll nulify the poison."

"Is this a trick? Are you just trying to finish me off? ...Well, whatever. If I have to risk death due to poison anyway, I'd rather trust you than not."

She pours the blue liquid in her lemonade and hurriedly drinks it down. Then she picks up the communication device and reports a possible poisoning at the luncheon.

"They'll be here soon, don't worry." She has no clue she has just jeopardized his mission.

"Not a trick." He assures her. He has a similar vial in hand, and drinks the antidote straight down. "Bitter stuff, though."

"I'll need a good trick to pull this off now, though. Should I even bother? Ahhhh."

She coughs a few times, then goes to refill her lemonade.

The thought of Elene telling Yoren how disappointed she is in his failure enters his mind.

He shakes his head slowly. I shouldn't have given her an antidote. This whole thing's a wash now. Feh.

At this moment the screams begin. Choked, gasping screams as the poisoned guests start to drop like flies.

The look of horror on Yoren's face isn't an act. Elene had said the poison was a slow, yet painless one. Obviously not.

He stares, transfixed, at the scene of death.

Apparently Elene wasn't above lying to her apprentice. That she would be so brutal, though... well, it was quite the spectacle.

At least with this all he had an alibi. The sole survivor would always be suspect. Now, as the authorities arrived, Pia leapt sobbing into the arms of the chief - an old, worn-looking man who was undoubtedly her father.

The Healers tried to save a few, but failed. The authorities searched the house and found the host of the luncheon dead. Yoren would remember how the people demanded the cook's execution, misplacing the blame. Families torn apart, chaos embodying everything... this was the nature of Elene's art.

However, what Yoren would remember most was Elene's reaction to hearing his report.

A few hours after the luncheon, Yoren sits in Elene's study, just after finishing his rundown of the events. He did his best to gloss over the fact that he'd given Pia a vial of antidote for the poison.

"I suppose it could be called a success..."

He's still a tad shaky.

"Then they are all dead?" Elene examines her fingernails, clearly unconcerned.

"As far as I could tell."

Will she catch his lie?

She looks up sharply and holds his gaze with hers, piercing. "Don't play ignorant. Her name was all over the papers. As well as your heroic rescue of her." Is that a hint of jealousy in her voice?

"And who would that be?" He matches jealousy with uncaring sarcasm.
