First topic message reminder :

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."

Yoren stands back, arms folded, eyes wary.

"Nevermind. We will restore her as a gift. It is time for our departure."

The woman leaves. Thunder crashes overhead despite the cloudless sky.

It suddenly becomes apparent that the previously crowded square is empty of all save Leticia, Ina, Yoren, and Tod.

And Elene, barely a foot behind Yoren, knife outstretched. She must have gotten into position silently.

Yoren turns.

Takes a few steps back, so that there's quite a bit of distance between himself and Elene, not that she can't cover it faster than most can move, and says "So."

Ina rises gracefully. More gracefully than usual. She walks with poise to Elene's side and delicately lays a hand on Elene's arm.

It leaves a scorch mark. Elene screams.

Ina's face is studiously calm. When she speaks, she enunciates with care, with serene eloquence. "You should not have done that."

Elene tries to escape Ina's searing grip. Despite Ina's calm stance, her grip appears unshakeable. The scream grows louder; the stench of burning flesh fills the air; Elene's arm falls off in Ina's hands, the rest of her recoiling several steps.

"...SO," she snarls, clutching at the smoking stump of what remains.

"Possession. Figures." Yoren snaps his fingers, and a sword forms in his left hand. He flips it over into his right.

Ina turns her calm gaze to Yoren. "I am as much myself as you are yours." She gestures to his cursed arm with the knife from Elene's removed hand.

"Bullshit." Yoren snarls.

He steps forward, a few steps.

Meanwhile, Elene lunges at Yoren, teeth flashing. Red magic - blood magic - surrounds her, originating from an amulet around her neck. She withdraws a nasty backup knife and pierces Yoren's elbow.

"An arm for an arm!" she crows, fury and madness dancing in her eyes.

Yoren slams his free arm into her body, and the motion seems to trigger a long blade to emerge from the sleeve of his coat. A silver blade. It runs through the shoulder of her remaining arm.

Now disarmed, Elene shrieks with rage.

She runs back and, losing her balance, crashes into him with all the enhanced physical momentum allowed a vampire, knocking him backwards, hoping to injure him by knocking his head on the ground.

"YOU! ARE! MINE!"

Yoren catches himself in a controlled fall, and rolls to his feet.

"Perhaps once. Perhaps. But no longer, and nevermore."

Elene cannot get up. So, instead, she uses her magic to pull Yoren to her. The force is incredible.

Yoren rides the wave of force without resisting, using the moment when it lessens to spring away

Elene collapses, defeated.

Ina stands, watching Yoren expressionlessly. She has grabbed her bow and nocked an arrow.

Ina draws her bow, staring at Yoren with sudden fury. In her still-calm voice she looses a single, parting word.

"Die."

Yoren's wards deflect the arrow.

"Not today, not in this shithole of a town."

"Just let nature take its course. If it is my death you seek then you don't need to lift a finger. I've only got about six months left to live."

He drives the point of the sword he's still holding several inches into the ground and turns to go.

As he's walking away, he draws one of his flintlocks from its holster and tosses it back at Ina. It's the silver one that belonged to his father. It skitters on the street and lands at Ina's feet.
