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...

"The axe." Her voice is grave as she proclaims the consequence.

"Oh. Eh, that might be a bit of an issue. Can I, ah, kill the headsman as he's trying to do the whole " cutting off my head" bit? I like this head."

"How are you going to kill him? Impale him on your sword?"

"That's usually how it's done, isn't it? I find impaling people to be a messy business though. The fluids... The moaning and screaming. The placating to get it over with already."

Is he drunk?

Lady Pia chuckles a bit and reaches for another pastry. Only... She doesn't find one. "If you'll pardon me, I must get another tray of pastries."

She walks away for a minute.

It just so happens that another woman -- a woman whose face Yoren knows, whose name was on tonight's mission -- becomes now visible. She stands chatting with the party's host.

Yoren discreetly taps his coat cuff to make sure the poison is still tucked there. The contents of that little vial into her wine would do the job.

It would seem, however, that she's not interested in drinking wine. Perhaps she's being cautious. Perhaps she expects.

He also has a small pocket full of needles and many poisons tucked into various other pockets. A prick with any of those would also work.

If only he could get the woman alone... But no, she seems to be making sure she's always surrounded closely by at least three people. One of whom is the party's host, naturally.

Yoren ponders his next move.

Lady Pia is returning with a tray of pastries. If Yoren doesn't act fast, he'll be occupied and might lose sight of his target.

Yoren moves off through the crowd and selects a slow-acting poison that will produce the same symptoms as a heart attack, in roughly two hours. He readies the needle in the sleeve of his coat as he nears the group. A light touch, incidental to everyone watching, should do.

The woman turns and glances at him dismissively, then picks up a dinner roll from a tray and takes a bite.

Yoren gets nearby her... And then trips on the rug, which seems to have gotten slightly buched up from the milling nobles. It's more of a controlled fall, really and he "catches" himself on the woman's arm. The needle barely pricks her skin, so over the touch of Yoren's hand she'll feel nothing at all. Yoren rights himself, the needle back in his sleeve in less than a second.

"M-my apologies, my Lady." He stammers...smoothly.

Every bit of this is carefully calculated. Now all he needs to do is watch.

She coughs violently and drops him. "Ugh! What in heaven's name - Who are you?"

"Dropping" him, which actually just allows him to easily regain his feet. "Raven Mormont, my Lady."

He gives a deep bow, as one would a superior.

"Well. Are you alright, good sir? That looked like quite the nasty fall." Her face is one of sympathy, though she has another coughing fit.

"I don't--I don't know, hold on..." She grabs a handkerchief and holds it tightly against where Yoren had grabbed her arm.

He curses mentally.

"Something wrong with your arm?" But of course, he's completely nonchalant out loud.

"I thought..." She tenses. "What did you say your name was, lad?"

"Raven. Mormont."

He puts a bit of a pause in between the names, and enunciates them clearly.

She writes the name down and puts it in her pocket. "Thank you."
