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...

He prepares as is his custom.

It isn't surprising to see Elene's prepared guards at her door.

Yoren watches from the deepest shadows, pondering how to pass or kill them. Probably kill, since they won't be but a bother anyway.

They seem tough. One of them is missing an eye. The other has a solid, veteran look on his face as he stares ahead, looking incredibly alert. It'd be really hard to sneak past them, let alone kill them without being caught and utterly wrecked.

Yoren applies a cloaking spell and slips over to the guards. His steel Hidden Blades leave their sheaths on his wrists, aiming for the jugulars of the two at the door. The silver ones are for his actual target, not her lackeys.

The steel blades don't seem effective. They barely make an impression before one of the guards snatches them up, pointing toward where they came from. In a quick sweep, one guard reaches forward and grabs the cloaked Yoren around the neck, baring his fangs. The other calls for Lady Cromwyll.

A string of curses, some literal curses, play through his mind. He attempts, vainly, to free himself.

He manages to slip from the thug's grasp, and the guard calls out in alarm. "He's gotten out!"

The other curses, reaching in his pocket and grabbing some ink, which he sprays in a wide arc. Some lands on Yoren, rendering his shape visible.

Yoren slips out of his shirt and recasts the spell, once more becoming invisible. He keeps moving.

Unfortunately, this time he's caught not by the guards, but by Elene herself, striding out of her room. She dispels the magic he'd cast on himself, looking down at him with an expression that is decidedly not amused.

A second later, his feet are swept out from under him by a cane from behind. A thick boot kicks him in the side.

Yoren attempts to keep his feet and fails, falling down rather ungracefully.

One of the guards grabs him, holding a blade to his neck. Elene crosses her arms, looking very displeased. "What are you still doing here?" she asks flatly.

"That's really none of your business." Yoren replies, just as flatly.

"You come into MY house and harass MY guards - probably on your way to harass ME - and you can bet every last coin you've ever accrued to your pathetic name that it's almost entirely my business. Don't come back. Guards? Take out the trash."

She clenches her fist and a searing pain bursts out on Yoren's scar, filling his mind. The guards rip his bracers off his wrists, the one with one eye examining the silver knives thoughtfully, then stowing them inside his own coat.

They tie his wrists together and put tape over his mouth before taking him to a dumpster in Lowtown and essentially beating him black and blue, before leaving him there to awaken in the morning.

Awaken he does, sore as if he'd had 100 colors of hell beaten out of him. Which, he supposed, he had. Where had he gone wrong, so far back at the start? Was it a single event or a string of poor decisions?

He walks out of Berkshire. They hadn't drained his magic and that's all that gave him the strength.

Finally gone from that accursed city, and hopefully never to be back. And he had never been back, until Tod told him that's where Ina was.

Spoiler:
 

Yoren finishes recounting this tale to Tod in the carriage, ghost pains in his side reappearing for a moment.

Ghost pains about his entire body, more like.

"I see."

He looks down.

"You have my sympathies for what you've been through. However... I'm afraid I cannot trust a killer. You understand, of course, why I must be wary. Your sister is dating mine. I must look out for Leticia's health."

"Of course. That is understandable. If it were possible to undo, I'd do so without a second thought."

Tod nods stiffly and pulls out a book. He can't actually focus on the words, though, as an awkward silence envelopes the carriage.

Yoren just stares at nothing out the window. He's too lost in his own mind to notice much.

"I have read about a benevolent demon involved in the field of healing and cursebreaking. Surely summoning it to erase the mess upon your arm would prevent you from dying... oh, within the next week?"

Yoren laughs bitterly. "And what would such a creature want in return for such a work of sorcery? I'd rather not negotiate with any more of those damnable creatures, regardless of the span of my life."

Tod doesn't respond. The carriage falls deeper into an awkward silence, a rift forming between the two passengers.

It would remain silent until two days later, when it pulled up at the meeting place for a shard group, set to explore a suspiciously Empty Manor.
