What if Tod and Yoren had not shown up the night Leticia and Ina stayed at the Croix Manor?

Leticia awoke at the knock on her door. Sunlight was shining through the window, Ina slept peacefully at her side. As Leticia looked down at Ina she remembered how she had confessed her love the night before.

The scene opens with Nalima opening the door and bringing in a big tray of steaming breakfast, cooked lovingly by Tobias. "Good morning, dears! Will you be leaving today? Rexley says you're more than welcome to attend Noel's funeral. We consider you family now."

The voice stirs Ina, somewhat "Uhhh? Wha?"

She blinks and registers the questions.

"I dunno... I don't like funerals..."

"We didn't really know Noel, so we wouldn't really fit. Sorry."

Nalima smiles warmly and pulls the girls into a huge hug. "It's alright. I understand. Finish eating your meal and then you can be off to explore the city. Just come back before you leave; I have some gifts I want to give you. And our other guest is still asleep, but I'm sure she wants to say goodbye too."

"Okay!"

Ina gets out of bed and starts to change into a fresh pair of clothes.

An hour later, the two of them are strolling through Berkshire when they hear a voice.

"Oh my. You're the one I saw Yoren adopt a while back, aren't you? You poor dear..."

A woman steps out of the shadows. An unfamiliar woman, wearing a tacky turtleneck sweater and lots of necklaces.

"Would you like to buy a cookie or two? Berkshire famous! Only 600G apiece."

Leticia forks over her money eagerly, buying two. She hands one to Ina.

"I am Lady Ellenia Pia, my dear. I run the Berkshire School of Art in my spare time for a little extra gold, but I so enjoy baking cookies. It's a pasttime. Ever since my daughter Marie passed away, I've just been unable to stop. You remind me of her, a bit."

"O...Kay? Well... Uh, thanks for the food I guess."

Ina tugs on Leticia's sleeve. This woman seems way too odd to trust.

Leticia seems content to chat with the woman a bit longer. She takes a bite out of her cookie.

Ina stands there, not really knowing what to do.

She fidgets a bit.

Leticia finishes all of her cookie.

"Let's go find some lemonade! There's some over there."

"Okay."

Ina has also finished her cookie by now, more from a sense of not wanting to hurt Leticia's feelings than having any more room for food.

As Leticia takes a sip of the lemonade, Ina suddenly feels a slight dizziness.

She reaches out and steadies herself with a nearby wall, but still almost falls to the ground.

Only to find a knife sticking out from her chest, having entered from behind without being sensed.

Leticia doesn't even seem to notice at first.

Ina puts a hand to her chest and goes limp, falling to the ground completely.

Leticia turns and sees this, eyes growing wide.

"ATTACK! MURDER! ATTACK! MURDER!"




Several blocks away, Tod goes pale. "LETICIA!" He starts running to where he heard the voice, mindless of Yoren beside him.

Yoren's actually going a bit faster, longer legs and whatnot.

Ina's still lying there, unmoving.

Leticia is sobbing, but not pathetically. She's still running around screaming for help. "Ellenia Pia" smiles quietly as she vanishes from the scene. Many nobles pretend to be busy with their newspapers, watching the drama. After all, people get murdered -- well, they prefer the term "assassinated" -- all the time, but rarely in broad daylight.

Tod notes a cathedral promoting miraculous cures that can all but raise the dead as he runs to Leticia. Winded, he falls to his knees as soon as she enters his line of sight.

Yoren walks over to Ina and bends down. He gently removes the knife from her chest, and parts her blouse with a knife produced from... Somewhere. He examines the wound carefully, and also checks her for a pulse.

He stands up, shaking his head.

He pulls a communicator out of His coat, pushes a few buttons and speaks into it.

"Come to..." He describes the general area to the person on the other end, and then "yes, thank you."

Tod faints at the sight.

Leticia looks at him incredulously and continues trying to find help.

Within seconds, an old lady walks up.

Yoren offhandedly says, "Nothing to see here, move along please."

"YOU GET AWAY FROM HER!" Leticia yells at Yoren, brandishing a torch she picked up... somewhere.

"Please, miss, heal her!!"


The woman curtseys, squatting down over Ina. Her mouth opens, the sound coming out a chorus of three voices, rather than one. "She yet lives, though only through a tenuous seal. What would you have us do?"

"Heal her! I'll pay anything!"

Yoren ignores Leticia entirely for the moment, instead asking the woman in a soft, even toned voice "And who, are you?"

The woman ignores Yoren entirely for the moment, placing her hand over Ina's head.

"So do we intend, that this child's life shall be restored! Poison is but a seal, and this seal we break and bend. Unto thy power let it be written; for thy glory let it be fulfilled!"

Ina starts to glow a dark purple color for a moment, then her eyes snap open.

"Who is willing to pay the price of this child's life?" the woman asks in her ominous voice, eyes fixed directly on Leticia.
