"Well, he's... hard to describe. But he ain't ever had qualms about all the... er... y'know what, I need to think before I talk."

"Indeed," Nikolaus comments, walking over with plates carefully set. "And a good time for that would be while you are preoccupied with eating. I trust you won't be too picky about the food?"

It looks delicious. (Insofar as delicious is defined by "quantity of chocolate".)

from http://ciphersyndicate.forumotion.com/t2414-alleyways-hightown#188447

Tod wakes up on a bed in a dusty room of the manor. "Where.."
"Oh, good. You're awake," Nikolaus says flatly.
"What hap-- oh, Light. Oh, oh sweet dear Light..."
"I took care of the body. It was rather delicious. That said, when I found you unconscious at the table, I..."
"Who are you? I don't owe you anything, do I? Is this a ransom or just torture?"
"...Sir, please lie back down."
"I have kept track of my debts, most of them illicit, and my name is far enough bespirched that you could theoretically demand whatever of me, but: I have nothing on me."
"Mr. Veraltet! Please! Calm down. I have your things. I brought them from your inn. I wish you no harm. I shall say it again, for good measure: sit back down. Your healing will not go so smoothly if you fidget."
"...Healing? What happened to me? How long--?"
"The alcohol you drank was not fit for human consumption, but for creatures with far greater tolerance. You've been out for a couple weeks."
"...Ah."
"Indeed. Now, you wait here. I'll be back with some soup."

Alone, Tod starts thinking about the situation. How did he know who I even was? ...Probably rumors. He might have met me back at Lord Innocent's estate... I have to clear my name somehow. I need to wipe the records clean. I'll have to default on my loans... or repay? Or... hm... I might be able to... I mean, one of them attempted to poison me. I'll have to revisit that old friend someday anyways, so I might as well go somewhere I can think. Somewhere I won't be recognized...

Ignoring the pain in his chest, he stands up and removes all of his fancy clothing, finding in the closet some suitably weathered peasant garb. Changing his clothes to appear, for once, less than completely meticulous, he jumps out the window and lands softly in the grass. He hums Alayne's song, drawing from the grass enough healing energy to negate the harm caused by the fall, as well as some of the pain in his chest from the dangerous alcohol he'd had. He races toward the gates of the estate, determined to get out of this city once and for all.


Nikolaus finishes pouring a bowl of soup when he hears the gates swing shut.

Quite a while after the events with the guest who fled, there's a knock on the manor door.

A familiar girl in white stands on the doorstep. Seeing Nikolaus, her face breaks into a wide smile and she tackles him with a hug.

"Oof!" he topples backwards.

The girl also topples over. And then stands back up, sheepish smile replacing the grin. "Sorry!" she apologizes as she offers a hand up.

Nikolaus grunts as he takes it. "It's a pleasure to run into you here as well," he says warmly.

"A more appropriate question would be what didn't happen. The answer to which is everything. Nobody's lived here in forever."

"Oh... So Daddy and Mama and Gramma and Auntie aren't here?" She seems a tad let down.

"Chin up. You can help us get the estates ready for them. Today I was going to plant the gardens. I heard it'll get cloudy today, which is good. Sunlight makes everything worse, especially hard labor."

"Your company would be very enjoyable. But first, let's inform our sister that you're here too."

"Yes, let us hope that they are not gravely disappointed... Saddened to the point of misery... Beset upon by an ocean of woes... Yes, I must repeat, for good measure, let us hope!" he proclaims in an overdramatic voice. He turns and gives her a sly grin. "In all seriousness, it was kinda lonely without you here. We just wanted you to be safe..." he says more warmly.

The first part sets her to giggling.

After a brief fit of the giggles, she says, "I got lost once or twice and a guy tried to rob me, but otherwise it was a pretty boring time."

"Yep! The guy who tried to rob me is probably gonna wake up sore though." She grins and lowers her voice confidentially, "I threw him through a tree with my magic.

"That makes the story even sadder. Did you give the tree a proper funeral?"
