Knives looked off into the night, as he looked away from camp. The Human child had been quite at odds with his parents about this trip, but when it brought up moments like this he was almost happy he was able to leave home. The world seemed to hold a peace at night that it didn’t during other times. As Knives listened to the insects he was happy. Their music filled his heart with a sense of calm and rest. He felt now as if maybe he could be alone with his thoughts.

Hours into the night, the sound of the bugs of Kyrnn was joined. At first by the sound of marching, and crackeling leaves, but eventually, by the sound of steel. Steel againt steel. The heat of battle had finaly come to the forests. Soon, it would overtake them.

Knives was quick to awake his parents, but the soldiers were quick to bring their fighting to the camp site. Knives had just awoken his parents when arrows began to scream through the air at them. Knives's father was quick to push him into the safety of a tree, but several arrows caught him in the process. His mother already lie dead on the floor next to him. Knives still remembered his fathers last words.

"Be careful Knives. Stay up here and be silent, so that the Black Guard may not find you!"

Knives's dad chocked on blood at the comment. Soon, he fell to the floor with a strange look on his face. He seemed to be content that he would finaly know the peace of death. Knives burned that image into his head. It would be the last the seven year old would see of his family.

About an hour later, Knives sat in the three terrified. He was trembling in all ways. The sounds of battle had died down now, and he was there alone, in the night. As he listened, he ehad to insects of Krynn, and crackling leaves. When he managed to muster up the courage to look beyond his wavy blond locks, he looked down to see Black Robes scouring the area. Black Robes, that seemed to carry fear with them as they walked. They carried swords, and torches, and seemed to be looking for something almost. Knives found himself more afriad then eh ahd ever been in his whole life as he looked at the black robes. He was so much so afraid, that he quickly his his brown eyes behind his eyelids and went back into strict hiding. He hid hismelf till morning.

That Morning

Knives sat trembling as he ahd all night. The robes had went away, but know there was leaves crackling again. Again Knives hid, he was afraid, and alone. He had seen his parents die, and he was now more scard then he could imagine. Along with the leaves, it seemed as if there was the howling of wolves, and the sounds of the wilds.

What is that..... Knives thought, completely scared for his life. In moments, he ahd manage to work up just enough courage to look down, but when he did he saw nothing. He sighed and fell back into his eyelids. When he opened them however, he saw small green eyes looking back at him. He gasped in shock and tried to move back in hear, scabbering, but only his the solid wooden trunk of the tree he was atop.

"Shianthas hura corseen." The creature, evish in look, said to the terrified Knives. The vocie sounded like the wilds and seemed to sound conforting, in a strange way.

"Wha...Wha...Whats are...you?" Knives stuttered out.

"Ah," The anture voice said, "You speak common. I asked you, what is wrong?" Said the green eyed elf.

And that was how he met the Kaganesti Elves.

Ten years later...

After Ten Years

Knives looked out at the setting sun from Kistal's woodland home, wondering for a stray moment if he had gathered enough meat for them to work for with a little while. He pondered if the forests of Ergoth had yeilded enough game. Knives was quite concerned with it, because the teenage and his caretaker did not wish to starve any time soon.

Knives was about to go for his bow again, when Kistal, is Kagonesti elfin partner and mother firgure called him into the house. He walked slowly across the wooden porch high up, and into the hole in the side fo the tree where they made their home. As he entered his home, he saw his mother before a small pot, mixing hot water with some fo the meat that knives had caught earlier that day.

"Hello Knives, thank you again for finding me this food today. We must be sure to thank the gods for such bounty later on before we eat it." She said, in Kagonesti. Her kind voice filled the room with the sounds of nature.

"Any time Kistal, though I think I should go out again. This might not be enought..."

"Sit down Knives, and be happy with what you have gotten. We need not slay any more today." Kistal said, sternly. She spoke with a tone that meant Knives wasnt going to go out again even if he wanted to hunt.

"Yes Kistal." Knives said, sitting at a makeshift table on a large stone within the tree.

"So Knives, we must pray now and thank the great good gods for allowing us to ahve such food today." Kistal said.

"Yes." Knives said restlessly. Knives didnt want to thank the gods. It was because of them he had to watch his parents die.

Kistal closed her eyes, and began to mutter under her breath, expecting Knives to fallow. He just sat there, and pretended to pray as he waited impaiently for it to be time to eat his well earned food."To see your world in a grain of sand,
and a heaven in a wild flower,

The black mare plodded along the dusty forest road. The woman in the saddle dozed lightly, and a white wolf trotted at their side. The woman seemed to be around twenty-five years, and was dressed well.

A long black cloak clung to her shoulders, secured with a simple silver clasp. She wore a man's silk tunic and woolen trousers. Thick riding boots covered her feet. She had long blonde hair that fell loose around her shoulders.

She rode easily even while dozing. the reins held loosely in her hands. The mare, a huge brute of a battlemare moved languidly, as if concious of her rider's state. Heavy black fetlocks trailed in the dusty ground as the heavy iron-shod hooves moved along the road.

A slender, but long sword was resting on the woman's lap, just behind the hardened leather map-case. The white wolf sniffed at the ground and her ears twitched as she did so. when the sunlight struck the wolf's eyes, one gleamed blue the other green.

The wolf barked waited. The woman woke slowly. "What is it Jennah?" She asked, her violet/blue eyes blinking in the sunlight.

We near the villiage Came the soft grey voice. The woman sat up straighter and stared at the buildings ahead.

"we should go to the Inn first before going to the smith...it will take him some time to re-coat my sword." She said.

The wolf sneezed from the dust the mare stirred and then trotted off ahead.

Ayeka Drache smiled, maybe this would be a quiet trip for a change... She mused.

She dismounted as she cleared the gates. The mare tossed her head as Aykea took hold of the reins and led the mare to the stables. The stable hand took the mare eagerly. Ayeka whispered a few words softly in the mare's ears, and the tense muscles relaxed....Nytehart would go with the stablehand now, and Ayeka needn't worry.

She tossed the hand a couple coins. "Food, water and a blanket....and stay away from her after that, I cannot guarantee she'll be very gentle." She said and headed for the inn.

The tavern just inside was bustling with customers. "Inkeep!" She called. "I need a room for the night." She called as she waited for the Inkeep to show.

The innkeep, a tall, regal Kagonesti, walked in from the kitchen. His hair was cut short to his ears, but it was still straight and blond, at first glance he looked female. He wore a leather tunic and boots, with a short sword on his hip. He had sharp green eyes that were called by most 'creepy' but were truely perceptive.

He took a glance at Ayeka and nodded. "You're not Ergothian, are you? Where ya from?" He asked in slighlty accented common. "Seen a ton of outsides, but never like you. You part magic user or something?"

Taking the key from under the desk, she handed it to Ayeka. "Are you here for Knives? I can't understand how he's been here for so long and not gone insane.....he's human, you see, best shot in Ergoth, gods know how all the elves hate him for it...a human besting an elf at archery."

At this point, there were several shouts and curses as a fight erupted. He smiled courteously to Ayeka. "Please excuse me." With that, he walked over, and slammed the hilt of the sword into the table. Both drunks looked at him. "Take it outside, or the blade goes in you!"

The shuffled out, but he blocked their exit. "PAY!"

Dropping stell in his pouch, they both walked out as he returned to Ayeka. "Sorry....here is your key, room is thrid of the left to the stairs." "If you think you'd enjoy it, perhaps i'll ask Her Dark Majesty to rip YOUR guts out."- Raist

"I come from a small town just East of the Silvanesti border...." She said as she droped several coins in his hand.

She paused as she turned then looked at him. "Knives? is that a person?" She asked, curious. "I came to speak with the smithy, I come here every so often, I need him to re-fold my sword...."

The wolf at her side whined softly and watched the Kagonesti warily.

Night had now fallen the area as the sun fell beyond the horizon completely. Knives ate his meal silently as did Kistel. They held the silence untill a loud howl broke the silence of the area.

"What was that?" Knives asked.

"It was a wolf. You'd think that all these years living with me you would learn more about the wilds." Kistel remarked.

"Well, Im sorry." Knives said, sitting back down. The howl had sacred him slightly, and he jumped up.

"Be calm Knives. Finish your meal. The night is good." Kistel said, as she read over an old book. She was an elder of sorts, a wisewoman and a bit fo a druid, and she wished to keep up her knowlage. Knives continued to eat, being a teenage, he needed to eat much more then Kistel to keep up his growth.

Knive's golden locks had been quite short and were cut to no more past the ears. What was left was tied back in a short pony tail behind him. This was originally to keep his hair out of his eyes, but it became esential as he became a hunter for Kistel and himself. This had made him quite the shot persay."To see your world in a grain of sand,

"Strange name, huh?" Said the inkeep, "His parents named him that...first thing he told us when Kistal took him in. Human names..." he said with a grin. "What's yours? Got a strange name as well, or just normal human...?" laughing shortly, he held out a hand to shake. "I'm called Felix, but i have lots of other names."

"Ayeka, Ayeka Drache..." She smiled and clasped the Kagonesti's hand. Jennah snorted. "This is Jennah" She said smiling, as the wolf licked Felix's hand.

"She's normally not so friendly with strangers..." Ayeka mused and then shook her head. "Thank you for the room... I should tend to this matter with the smithy and I'll be back" She turned and left the inn, as she did, the dying sunlight reflected off of a ruby pendant around her neck.

The ruby glinted a blood red, and then the light caught the obsidian etching in the stone....of a black rose.

"Knive could you run an errin for me before it gets to late?" Kistal asked.

"Yes of course what is it?" Knives asked looking up from his plate.

"Could you run down the the Blacksmith an get my pot I left there a few days ago for mending? I would much like it back."

"Of course, I'm on my way." Knives said hopping up and out of the tree house. As swift as a hat, Knives jumped onto the ladder and swifty ran down it. Then he ran onto the dirt path and began to amke his way to the smith. When he was nearly there, he ran past a strange woman who also seemed to be on her way there."To see your world in a grain of sand,

Felix patted Jennah's fur. "That's some necklace you got there..." He said running to catch up with her. He smiled. "You'll need to know the way around...its extremely confusing..." "If you think you'd enjoy it, perhaps i'll ask Her Dark Majesty to rip YOUR guts out."- Raist

She smiled at Felix's comment on the necklace and waved him off. "Don't worry, I've been to this smithy before, I know the man well... I'll be right back." She said as she left the Inn.

Ayeka watched the human boy run past her towards the smithy...

"Well....hopefully he's there to pick something up, I don't want to stay much longer than I have to" She muttered to herself.

The Smithy was dark save for the forge. She smiled at the human that looked up at her. "Well...Lady Drache...been some time... Need that blade of yours re-folded?" he asked, smiling as he handed the boy a large pot.

Ayeka nodded and handed him the sword. The hilt was done in silver, and it held an image of an attacking dragon. She handed him several coins and out of another pouch handed him several lumps of pure silver.

"That should cover it Erik..." She said and smiled at the boy. (I say boy cuz all humans are perpetually young to her....)

"I'll be staying at the Inn, send for me when It's finished." She turned and walked from the smithy.

"Thanks." Knives said, as he left. As he was on his way back, slower this time, he ran into the woman again. This time she was short her sword. Knives couriouse nature got the better of him and she noticed his stare for a moment. He quikcly turned, and siged for being to stupid. The then got to his house faster, as to avoid this embarissing situation.

"Ya know Erik, Miss Ayeka?" Asked Felix as she returned. "He's not been here for too long, 'suppose you could meet him on the road......Why you need to visit the smithy anyway? You've got a fine blade in your sheath, nothing I see wrong with it. 'less there is something that you want to add?"

Ayeka smiled and nodded. "You could say that..." She stifled a yawn and glanced around the villiage...hoping against all hope that this would turn out to be a peaceful venture.

she was reluctant to go back inside to the hustle and bustle of the Inn, and stared up instead at the winking stars. Lunitari was just clearing the horizon and it's red light gave everything a garish shadow. She looked away from its bloody light and her fists clenched....

The red moon was near full and it was this time when she was weakest....not weak against any outside enemy...but weakest to fall prey to her own nature.

As Felix shuffered more drunkards out, he was watching steel tumble into his pocket when he noticed Ayeka's hands clench out of the corner of his eye.

"Ya ok, Miss Ayeka?" He yelled over. "Lunitari done sumtim to ya?" He asked jokingly. Noticing her serious expression, he walked over and put a hand on her shoulder. "You wanna go see the druid? Names' Kistal...she's the one who brings up Knives. SHe's good with people's problems, perhaps i should lead you there?"

He looked at all the customers and annoced, "the Inn is closed for the night." As depressed people shufled out, he put an arm around her shoulder. "C'mon, Miss Ayeka." He said and led her over to Kistal's house and knocked.

"Hey Kistal? It's me, Felix. I have a girl named Ayeka here, she seems like sumthin's wrong.....""If you think you'd enjoy it, perhaps i'll ask Her Dark Majesty to rip YOUR guts out."- Raist

Ayeka tried to protest but the words died in her throat, through a red haze she viewed the world.

Damn...why wasn't I paying attention? She chastized herself. She bit her lip and refused to meed Felix's eyes, knowing that by now a gold cast had lit her eyes, like an animal's woud reflect torchlight.

Maybe she can help L'Endral... came Jennah's soft voice in Ayeka's mind.

Perhaps

Ayeka struggled to keep the hunger, the Need at bay... The pendant around her neck glowed softly, though it did little good at this time...

Ayeka stumbled forward and sat down, her hands clenched.... It would have been best to let her run in the countryside...better an animal killed than an innocent...

She shivered with the thought....she had never truely harmed an innocent in her life...and she wasn't going to start now...

"Stay back....there is no 'transformation' I am what I am..." She whispered, holding her hand out to halt the Kagonesti...

Jennah whined and backed away a little, her ears layed back. She turned her mis-matched eyes towards the elf, and forcing the telepathic power the wolf possesed to the elf, demanded.

Can you help her? She fears she will kill you or someone else... it will tear her mind apart... Came the cool, grey colored voice in Kistal's mind.

Ayeka looked up, and her eyes gleamed gold. "how do you know of what aflicts me? This only happens when the red moon is full, at other times I can control it, take only what I need, no more....on this night of all nights I wish to kill not merely take what I need to survive...."

Felix grabbed several stalks of root and spedily went back to Kistal's house. Ayeka looked worse--her fists were clenched and her eyes had a golden sheen to them...like she was going to rage out of control.

He pressed the root into Ayeka's hand and walked over to Kistal. "It might be better if you let her in the countryside.....this villiage is crammed with human and Wilder Elf...if she gets loose..." He whispered hastily in Kagonesti.

He then assistd Knives in taking the Dellis root from him and giving it to Kistal so she could concoct something with it.

OCC: I got the Black Guard concept from Empire earth. They were the Elite Soldiers of Noyaya Russia. You are welcome on course.

Knives handed Kistel the roots and she began to work on her mixtures. Knives was careful to keep a close look on the vampire, and kept a hand on his simitar that sat at his leg.

Soon, Kistel began to finish her mixture and put it into a small wooden bowl.

"Knives, come, make sure that she drinks this." Kistel said.

Knives did as she said, and Ayeka slowly fell alseep as the elixer began to take effect on the vampire. However, when Knives looked at Kistel, she seemed worried, and upset. She seemed afriad, as if thigns were comming to pass that shouldnt.

"Kistel, she will be ok, will she not? The root came to her quickly enough did it not?" Knives said in Kagonesti.

"She will be fine....but the visions...they are comming true..." Kistel replied.

"What? Visions?" Knives asked.

Kistel seemed to look at Knives as if she didnt even know she was talking to him. She shook her said slowly, "Nothing, I am tired, and must sleep."

And with that the conversation was over."To see your world in a grain of sand,

"I'll take Miss Ayeka back to mah inn, Kistal. Thanks for da help." He said carefully grabbed the sleeping half-vampire.

She was heavy, and when they got back to the inn, he laid her down on the bed his wife slept in, after they fought. Felix laid on his own bed and lasped into deep thought. "If you think you'd enjoy it, perhaps i'll ask Her Dark Majesty to rip YOUR guts out."- Raist

Kistal is Dreaming

She see Knives doing battle. She sees him doing battle with an unseen foe, and being aided by a Vampire and a mage. The Innkeep is there, and they do battle with a foe that seems so dark, so evil....

"AHHHH!!!" Kistel screams as she awakens in the dead of night. Knives is there is a moment, hiding in the shadows.

"Your there... I can see you." Kistel says.

"I know." Knives says slowly.

"What troubles you?" Kistel asks.

"I'm Leaving soon arent I?" Knives asks.

Kistel didnt know what to tell Knives. She had taken him in as her own son, and it pained her to see her visions, and to know whats going to happen."To see your world in a grain of sand,

Ayeka woke to the sounds of the chirps, her blue/violet eyes clear now. She listened to the sounds though she didn't fully understand the complex "secret" language of the Kagonesti. Jennah whined softly and licked Ayeka's face.

"Easy L'Endra..." She laughed, the forein word rolling off her tounge in a perculiar way. The white wolf sat down and Ayeka pondered the odd dream she had just had. She wasn't one to have them....her Sh'Endra was more suseptible to them then she had ever been.

She sat up slightly, and looked to Felix. "Thank you....for helping me..." She said softly, flushing. "Thankfully that only happens the first night Lunitari is full...." She looked down....

Knives was confused, and in pain. His dreams were filled with nightmares that were common that night, however, he saw them in a different light. He saw a darkness within himself, and within others, that made the geniside of the empire look conforting. Knives wondered what it all meant, and he had awaken, had a forboding conversation with Kistel, and was then shooed off into the woods to get wood for the next morning. He had faintly heard Kistel talking with soemone over long distence, but had not heard the words."To see your world in a grain of sand,

He sat down next to Ayeka. "I can figure out why ya didn't say 'nething, but i suppose i outta ask right now...yah at least part vampire, right? Yah hunt yur kind, dats why you need a special sword?""If you think you'd enjoy it, perhaps i'll ask Her Dark Majesty to rip YOUR guts out."- Raist

Ayeka winced at his loud voice and then smiled sadly. "yes... I am half. My Father was the most powerful of our kind...The pure bloods that is... It's a long complicated story, but the day I was born, he tried to have me killed, using my mother to do it. But a young pure blood Lord saved me, and in the struggle, killed my mother."

She sighed as the memories came flooding back. "for years I was told that one of the "Cursed Ones" did it, and for years I hunted them. My brother, Touga tried to stop me, he said if he had to kill me to stop my stupidity he would....till the memory of that night came flooding back to him... I nearly killed him instead..."

"Our father tried to have us all killed, Myself, My brother and the Pure Blood Lord who had saved me the day I was born...."

She looked up, her eyes haunted by the memories. "We prevailed, but the assassin Cursed One that Father had made a deal with continued to haunt us all, we had demolished his plans with the Death of Lord Drache... He stole my younger son from me. and my mate, has been missing for twenty years...."


She drew her knees up to her chest. "Cursed ones are extreemly allergic to silver...so are the purebloods for that matter... if cut with a silver blade, they cannot heal the wound, coat it with a silver powder and they will die within moments... They cannot go into the sun without magical aid, and even the pure bloods must avoid the sun when it's at its zenith."

"I am half, silver pains me greatly, but I can heal the wound in time... Sun has no effect.... the only thing that haunts me of my heritage is the need for blood...."

Her hands clenched in the blanket. "I usually only take what I need from those willing to help, even those I take by force I do not kill unless it is a service to the rest of the world. I am such a fool.... I am usually so careful... Forgive me... I would never have forgiven myself if I had..." She turned her head away, a sob wraked her slender frame.

Felix comforted her. "I am sorry, Ayeka...I am so sorry..." He embraced her in a hug. "I cannot say anything to comfort you...and i see what has brought you here.....perhaps you are the vampire in the dreams...."

Assuming she'd want an explanation, he started. "Kistel and I have been having dreams...since Knives has been growing up. It's me, Knives, Kistel and a vampire vs. some dark thing.

OOC:Renegade mage. Sounds interesting.

BIC:The red-robed mage had been running for months. He would tell no one of his past, no one. Yet he had this dream, this weird dream. Of him, a vampire, and two others. It made no sense, no sense at all.

He had been in the woods for a little while now. He saw what seemed to be an inn. He ran up to it and started banging on the door. The three hunters could still be after him but, maybe they thought they had accidently killed him in that fire. That would be a good sign.

For then, he wouldn't have to always be on guard. "Hello? Anybody in there?" Hopefully, his hunters weren't on his track...

"Where is the other?" He looked around. "Surly he is here?" He then grabbed a chair and sat down. This was all confusing him.

Ayeka, if you can hear me.. Why does my name hurt you? I have alittle telepathic abilities, that is why you hear me. If I was far away, I couldn't do this.

He had been up for the past few hours, he had only slept alittle last night. Yet, he had the same dream once again. Except for, this time, he had seen a vast army of creatures. He could not tell what they were, because the darkness had clouded them all.

What should I do? Should I tell them? But then surly they will not go. But what if it is a trick? Sent to throw me off guard? I'm must definately get to the bottom of this.

Felix hastily climbed up the stairs, muttering something about how little humans had no paitence and were always diving into things. He was acutally carrying on a coverstaion with himself about how Knives was completely different probaly becuase he was raised by elves.

He went to his room and pulled out a chest. Inside was a harness that he strapped on, and a sword.

Acutally, it was two sword, two blades coming out of oppisite sides of the hilt. He tested the balance a couple of times and then cliked it into the specially made harness for the sword. He pulled on some leather armor over it and walked back down.

As Knives approched Kistels Tree house, he really wasnt sure what to say to her. He was sure that she already knew what he was going to do, but It was still very hard to come to terms with the fact that he was leaving. Knives assumed that it was just something that he would have to do one way or another before he left however.

When Knives entered the home he found himself staring eye to eye with the old Kistel.

"You leaving arent you?" She said.

"Ya."

"Then I must give you this." Kistel said as she moved over to her trunk, and she pulled out a silver simitar.

"It's Called the 'Windscar' it is a blade formed in enchanment of Aeromancy. A Blade of Wild Sorcery."

She handed him the blade and he tested the balence. It seemed to fit him perfectly.

"I have a brother. He is somewhere in the forests near Silvinost. He is a master of Areomancy, and a Far Seer of visions, much like myself. Go to him, and he will train you to mastery in these arts. You will need these skills in your battles to come." Kistel says.

"I will do that."

"Just tell him I sent you, and he will understand." Kistel said.

"Ok."

"Goodbye Knives." Kistel said hugging him, he slowly returned the favor.

"Goodbye Kistel."

And with that he was off. He quickly came to where the others sat in silent talk.

A sharp neigh could be heard, and the black battle mare broke free from the stable.... as ordered the stable hand had left the bridle and saddle alone, and the mare cantered up to Ayeka, the horses intelligent eyes inspecting the others.

She scratched the mare under the halter and murmered softly in her ear. The battlemare snorted and pawed the ground. "Come on over here... One at a time. She'll need to get used to your scent... She's well trained and will attack anyone but those she has been trained to accept.

I don't like that horse, my Prince. though the griffon to his master.

I'm not particullary fond of it myself, Aero. But i am very fond of the lady on the horse, and you will not harm her for the girl. responded Felix.

Nytehart pawed at the earth in agitation. Jennah growled at the larger creature. Ayeka gave the creature a sorrowful glance and nodded. "Your griffon is large enough to take the rest with you to the air.... I will continue on the ground, and I can travel faster alone."

She said and swung up into the saddle. The mare reared, her iron shod hooves pawed at the empty air, and she bolted forward, at a ground-eating gallop. Ayeka leaned forward in the saddle, and the mare seemed to blur slightly as her speed increased.

The white wolf let loose a peircing howl and dissapeared into the forest....

Ayeka kept her head down, out of the wind. The battlemare beneath her never faltered over the rough ground. She could hear the griffon above them, and sighed.... She really could use some time alone...so that she could sort things out.

She sat back in the saddle, and let the reins drop. The mare took the signal and ran with all her stamina. Ayeka brought her hands together and said a soft word. She raised them over her head and clapped them sharply.

A thick smoke exploded outward, it didn't raise above the tree-line. Forgive me...I have to think this out...I'll meet back up with you at sunset....keep going! She sent as Nytehart whirled to change direction...

Knives saw that the mare was moving on before the gas had covered the Gryffon. He signed, not blaming the Vampire for wishing to have some time alone.

He lloked on, silently, at the groud where the mare had been, and was surprised that a White aura appeare din the dust. Kistel had told him about this. It was a Forsight ability she ahd been trying to pass on to him for years, and it finally appeared to be working. The aura was the color of a person's true identity.

What? white...ut that is only for the oure Kistel said...shes a vampire thought...is that possible... Knives thought as he watched the aura move off down the road at a very fast speed."To see your world in a grain of sand,

Felix spent the next hour in deep sleep, in his past.

~Dream~
"Look father, it's a human! He's wearing these cool robes, they're like all glowy!"

The man looked at him. "That' nice, my little prince. It is time for your lessons of the other elves."

"The Silvanesti and the Qualinesti? Cool!" Said the elven prince.

The little prince was grinny broadly and happily walked inside, his jeweled cape trailing and his small crown glistening in the sun.

The man stayed outside as one of the black robed figures walked up to him, a sword in one hand. He looked at the sword and bowed to the figure. "We mean you no harm, lord! Deep in the forest, and we have no intention to leave! Just leave us alone, please, lord."

"That cannot be accepted." a chilling voice from the hood. "You will submit to us or be slain. Your boy will be taken under our command and your kingdom will become part of the Empire of the Black Guard."

"No...not Xilef! please!"

"Step aside, Elf!" The voice said, and it mixed with a gurgle as the Kangonesti king got steel in his throat. "Foolish elves. get the boy and raid the kingdom!"

Three hours later, three guards held a kicking, screaming elf. "LET ME GO! GET OFF OF ME! I'VE NOT DONE ANYTHING!" from the kicks bruises scratches etc, you could see he'd been in a fight.

"Slay him." Ordered the voice. A sound of steel sliding from sheat came as the blade was drawn upon the boy's throat....

Time slowed.

"I am Dra---." There was no ending to the word in the dream. The chilling black cloaked figure sneered as he mouted the rest of the word. Felix should have knew it, Xilef knew it so long ago. It had been lost in the webs of his memory.

Time sped up again.

.....and he bit the wrist who did it. THey dropped him, and he ran...

The Guard left. There was nothing in this burned out shell of a kindgom. Besides the Kagonesti had nothing of value.

Prince Xilef bid his griffon goodbye for some time, and became Felix, the innkeeper.

"How long until we get there?" He asked Felix. He had been asleep sense they had left. He was now just becoming awake. He had a feeling that they were being followed, yet again.

Down in the Forest
"Keep up you fools! We don't want to lose them." A black figure on a brown mare said to four black figures behind him. "Sorry boss, our horses are getting tired," said the one that was catching up to the leader.

"So, soon they will stop. There is no way that griffon can keep on going," the leader said. In a glimpse of light they could be seen fully. They were Black Guards!

"Don't forget our mission. We have to take out one of them," the leader said. "But, Gerold, which one are we supposed to stop?" Gerold said, "which ever one we please." He gave a manical smile. He would full fill his mission, no matter what.

Ayeka let Nytehart slow to a walk. The mare had gotten her excess energy used and she moved along the road at an easy gait. Jennah walked longside the mare, and sniffed at the ground... Now and again she would scent something interesting and run off to investigate....

Now, abruptly, the wolf stopped.... Her bright eyes caught the light of the sun and flashed a mismatched red/gold.... Ayeka turned and Nytehart stopped, suddenly nervous. The mare pulled at the bitless bridle, eager to run again.

Ayeka moved the mare and wolf off the path, and hid in the woods flanking the right hand of the road... She whispered a soft spell, and a whirlwind tossed the dust from the road....obliterating their tracks...

She lay in the grass, as Nytehart did the same at a softly whispered command... The wolf crouched low in the tall grasses beside Ayeka...

Through the wolf, and the other wolves of the forest, Ayeka saw the black guard riding towards them... She knew that her spell would only obliterate their tracks so far, and knew that they followed her.

She smiled and waited patiently... perhaps she would learn more about them....and take care of an urgent need as well....

"No maniac. A dear friend of mine." Felix said.

We are being chased, Aero. They want me.... he sent to the griffon.

I have seen this such, my prince. Shall i speed up? I warn you, my wings grow tired with all three of you on my back. Aero responded.

No, stay at this pace......Slow and steady wins the race. He responded and turned to face Knives.

"We shall continue at this pace. Aero is tired, and those horses moreso. Do not question me, Knives." He glanced down, his eyes filled with hate. "So...they've returned here, to seek what they think is theres....to capture Prince Xilef..." He smiled sadly. "I'll get you, Dra..."

The GROUND

"Go ahead, Geold. Take him with you." Said the leader as he eyed the horse tracks that he'd nearly trampled.

The two of them road off.

He slowly watched the tracks...and they stopped! Simply stopped! There was no stream nearby, nor dirt stirred up! it was gone.

He growled. Lord Drache did not like failure.

Ayeka moved through the shadows with practiced ease.... She only wished the sun was lower.... She watched the man search for any sign of her or the horse. Jennah for the most part kept the ground beside the road, leaving very few tracks.

Endrin... This man hunts you.... The large wolf sent, and Ayeka caught a mental picure of bared fangs.

I know... Lure him closer 'Endra... She sent back, sending pictures of Jennah dogging the man, leading him onward closer to Ayeka's hiding spot....

Ayeka wove the spell tighter, keeping her form hidden against the cliff's shadows.... so long as she didn't make actual eye contact with the man she should remain hidden.

Her hand rested lightly her sword....tensing as he drew near.

"Arrest? Surely not...." She said, allowing her magic to make her voice echo across the clearing.... making it impossible to locate...

A gust of wind rustled the branches and the sunlight stabbed at her eyes. SHe blinked and looked up involinarily.

"Damn!" She cursed as she looked right into the Guard's eyes. She drew her sword without a second thought. The drache crest pendant flashed ruby red against her tunic.

She backed away from him hurridly and looked at him cautiously...she would see first what she could get from him volintarily....

"Black Guard huh? Why would you arrest me, a stranger to your lands?" She asked, her blue/violet eyes bright in the sunlight.

"I have been away from our Lord for some time...." she said softly, struggling to absorb this new shock.

Silence him Endrin! Before he spreads word of your presence! Jennah sent frantically.

Ayeka hesitated.... and then acting upon old insinct, she frowned at him. "How dare you do such a thing to me... " She snarled, though her heart recoiled from such cold treatment...

"I have been following them myself... If you know the Drache crest, then you know the punishment for what you have done to me..." She attacked.

She moved with the speed of her people, pulling his head back with a vicious tug on his hair. she bit into his throat before he could cry out....and reeled with the information that flooded her mind as the blood flooded in her veins....

Images of a burning city....

Images of a man in a black cloak.....

The man pulling back the cloak, revealing the well-trimmed dark auburn hair the color of blood....

The cold ice blue eyes that peirced the heart as well as the mind.

With a choked gasp she threw the man away from her.... knowing he would die on his own... If he was lucky one of his companions would find him....if she was lucky he would die before then....

She contemplated finishing the act with her sword, but she was so sickened by the whole ordeal that she ran to Nytehart and swung up into the saddle, She kicked at the mare's side and the mare galloped back down the path, hoping to catch back up with the group....

This can't be....He's Dead! She cried mentally as the shock of what happened roiled in her mind.

Aero tired rapidly after that.

I must land soon, my prince..... The panting griffon said.

Land, Aero, we will take watch.

The griffon landed as Nytehart galloped up to them. Noticing the blood on Ayeka and her shocked face, he jumped off his griffon and embraced her comfortingly.

"What has happened, Ayeka? Did they get you?" Felix asked.

This is all my fault, Aero.....they're loooking for me!

The griffon had laid down into sleep, however.

"Sorry for the delay, Adrian and Knives, but Aero is tired." He turned back to Ayeka.

"You've...fed..." He said quietly, hastily wiping the blood off her face. "On one of the soilders, I presume.....what did he say or do?"

Geniune concern marked his face. "What's wrong?" In reference to a friend who's name means cabbage, and he's sick: "Poor cabbage, he's wilting." -Blake

Ayeka flushed, embarassed and shamed of her actions.... She pulled away from him, and shook her head sadly at his pained expression.

"I'm sorry..." She murmered. "He recognized this..." She said, tugging at the pendant that hung around her throat... only three people in this world wore this crest... Myself, My brother, and my acursed father...." She said softly....as her mind replayed the horrid images back to her.

She lowered her head to her hands, and began to cry softly. "this can't be happening.... When I.... When I took that guard I saw Him But he's dead! It's impossible!" She looked up at Felix with haunted eyes.

"Isn't it?" She said her voice so unbearibly soft and broken....as her whole world seemingly crashed around her.

As he soothed Ayeka, his eye caught her pendant. The moment flashed back to him.

A small boy, held by two guards. A man with icey blue eyes sneering, holding a sword.

"I am Dra---"

Felix gasped, then blinked.

D-R-A.......C-H-E. He though wildly. No.....that's Ayeka's last name....the Black Guard knew her father

He saw Knives collapse, but he was able to catch him before he had fallen the whole way. "I feel like this mist has brought us danger." He said as he looked around as the mist grew. He didn't even notice Ayeka and Felix. "This is definately not good."

She stood and looked around carefully.... "Magic..." She said, her voice whisper soft...

"Jennah?" She called. The wolf was at her side immediately. "What do you see my friend?" She said, burying her slender fingers into the thick white fur. She felt a power from the thickening black mist that surrounded them....

Jennah began to growl... her mis-matched eyes seeming to glow for a moment in the low light.

The mist can drive you mad... The wolf sent, giving Ayeka several images of maddened wolves. She shivered and looked towards Adrian. "Adrian! I need your help mage!" She called, knowing that she could create a sheild, but she'd need a stronger power than just hers alone to push the mist back.

She caught Knives' soft voice and cringed at his use of the term "Cursed one" Though she was born a pure-breed.... right now she felt no better than a cursed one.... She shot Felix a pleading look....and then turned back to Jennah and Nytehart.

The mare moved over to her and nickered softly. Jennah...can we call the packs here? She sent softly.

The wolf looked out trying to feel past the mist... There aren't many, they flee the feeling of the dark....

AYeka nodded and then pulled out a small steel dagger. Her stronger magics would stemm from her own blood. She gripped the dagger's blade in both hands and clenched them as tight as her strength allowed.

Blood dripped down from the blade and her shoulders shook with the effort as her words, ancient and forein filled the clearing.

Ayeka carried Knives with ease, and lifted him onto Nytehart's back. The mare only wore her thick saddle pad, as Ayeka had removed the saddle earlier. She lept up onto Nytehart's back with practiced ease and urged the mare forward. She kept one arm wrapped around Knives' waist, the other guiding the mare with the reins.

The mare drew abreast of the gryphon and Ayeka met Felix's cold stare. Her eyes where cool and calm, and filled with an inner fury.

"I am not my Father." She said coldly and she let loose a sharp yell and the battlemare bolted down the path.

Jennah hesitated and swung her mismatched eyes to Felix... She studied him for a long moment, then growled low in her throat.

You would to remember your own words Xilef.... The white wolf sent. she began to pant and her tounge lolled and it seemed she was laughing at his startled expression.

do not be so shocked.... The wolves carry a racial memory... many died the night your kingdom was destoryed... They remember... and many know you... it was not hard to gain this information... though My Endral (Sibling {Refering to Ayeka}) Does not know this yet....

Jennah turned then looked back over her shoulder, her eyes seemed to glow. You know what it is to be hunted.... yet, you do not know what it is like to be hunted by kith and kin... She let out a sharp bark and dissapeared into the forest.

-------

Ayeka leaned forward on the mare's back, sheilding Knives. She heard hoofbeats behind her and she half turned, as a arrow sped past her cheek.. The guards where behind her.

Another volley of arrows sped past, and she could hear their shrieks in the wind. "Nakashi! Nytehart... Nakashi!" The mare neighed and broke into an all out gallop.

Too late, Jennah had caught up and attempted to make the guards' horses balk. She snapped at their heels, avoiding the deadly hooves, as their riders let loose another set of arrows...

THis time one hit the mark.... Striking Ayeka in the right shoulder. She screamed in the pain that tore through her shoulder, and the mare broke the gallop, slowing to a rough canter.

"Nie!!" She cried. NO!, Keep going! She sent mentally... she reached for the arrow with her free hand, dropping the reins.... IT was lodged deep, and she could not pull it free without help.... her vision blurred as she felt the familiar burning pain of silver...

"Damn...." She gasped and groped for the reins... Knives was still riding in front of her...and she held him in a grip of iron.

Endral!! Came Jennah's mental voice, edged with panic, she had succeeded in making the guard's horses panic, and they threw their riders...

Ayeka's eyes burned pale gold and she fought to remain concious...

Endral.... Guide Nytehart to the others.... She'll follow you.... She sent back, her mental voice weak and tired...

Ayeka forced her heart to slow, her mind to sleep.... her eyes unfocused, but kept their gold cast... She would survive if she found them soon... The mare raced on, the two riders holding on by Ayeka's immesurable strength, even in the semi-trance state she was in...

Hellforge
05/15/2003 3:43 PM

Ayeka's shreik had finally awoken Knives, as he sat up streight and assessed the situation. Noticing the arrows silver tip through the Vampire's sholder, Knives cured. He could tell that she was still alive, but he didnt know for how long.

Knives repositioned himself so that he faced the guards that we now in hot persuit. He took his bow from his back and quickly nocked (SP?) 3 arrows at the same time. The arrows glowed with a shinning white aura.

"BY THE POWER OF THE LIGHT!" Knives shouted, channeling all he could find of Paladine's holy energy nearby, like Kistel had taught him, into the arrows, "BURN!"

And with that he unlesashed all three arrows. They all his a different guard, and the blackness of their hearts burned with such intensity that they burst into flames, their evil finally overthrowing them.

Sadly, there were many more guards left...and Knives could not make too many more holy arrows..."To see your world in a grain of sand,

Xilef! I left Xilef back at the castle; he's dead! Those days have passed, Jennah. ANd despite that Ayeka is, indeed, not Drache, I will not forgive her name so easily. He responded, then turned Adrian.

"Her father slayed my own. You need to know nothing more, human." He responded coldly to the renegade, then turned.

Aero.....what should I do with Ayeka? and Knives? Felix asked his griffon nervously.

Knives can handle himself, i believe the griffon responded. But as far as the Daughter of Drache is concerned....well her father was rather kind to the kingdom in the beginning....

Indeed...i shall keep an eye on her. He said to the griffon, and lapsed back into his cobwebbed memory.

~Flashback~

A thudding of boots resounding throughout the castle as Xilef whistled to himself merrily. His teacher came to him and looked at him.

"Prince, yo must get to safety!" His teacher said hurridly.

"But....." said Xilef, but hurridly away anyway.

He went to an ramshackle building- it was virturally falling down. He hid inside it, as he plotted. No longer Xilef...Felix. Backwards."

For so many years he was an innkeeper. So much to learn about the commonfolk, drunks ale and swordplay. And somehow, being royal was boring.

Jennah's howl filled the forest, and the urgency behind it made several voices join hers.... till the forests seemed filled from edge to edge with wolves.

The packs joined forces, following the large white female as she raced against the guards. Those who could hear the mental cries couldn't hear anything wholy articulate....only the white female's voice was strong and clear, the others raged against those who dared harm one with the Bond...

Ayeka's eyes cleared slightly at the sound of the wolves, and she sat a little straighter... Her whole body felt as though fire ran through her veins... She gripped her sword with a shakey hand and she reined in the Mare.

The wolves streamed from the forest... As the attacked the horses... Many fell before the simply overwhelming numbers of wolves draged the terror filled equines down.

The humans screamed in rage as the wolves attacked.... Jennah's howl filled Ayeka's ears as she drew her sword, just in case any made it towards her...

Run Endra!, I run with the packs... they will fall to our fangs! Jennah snarled, and their eyes met.

Nodding once, Ayeka kicked Nytehart back into a gallop, and the mare ran with the wind...

"W-We have to meet up with the rest... I need help Knives... I may be half human, but silver is still deadly to me... The wound will not heal on it's own..." She said weakly, as she slipped back into the self-induced trance.

Jennah appeared on the path ahead of them. Her blue eye gleamed red, her green one glowed gold... They met Knives' eyes.

Nytehart will follow me.... I will lead you to the group.... She thought-sent and the horse's ears flicked towards the wolf. Jennah turned and ran beside the mare as she drew abreast of the wolf.

OOC: Okay, kinda got a solution for our "dilemma"

BIC: Another rider crashed through the underbrush in the darkened forest path. The bay gelding pulled restlessly at the reins as he and his rider raced hastily thorugh the trees. They burst out of the forest to ride close to Ayeka's mare.

A second wolf, deep grey and black joined Jennah on the trail. The man on the Bay Gelding had long, dark aburn hair, almost the color of blood. His pale blue eyes where dark with worry as he caught Nytehart's reins.

"Woah girl....slow down... They aren't following us anymore..." He said, the deep timbre of his voice made Ayeka stir slightly. "Sleep sis, don't wake yet... We'll take care of that shoulder soon enough...." He said.

"Go on, NightShade, You and Jennah find Ayeka's companions." He kept hold of Nytehart's reins and he looked at the boy. "What happened?" He asked as he led the mare at the bay gelding's side, as they continued at a gentle canter.


OOC2: Just go along....it will solve our little problem with our thinking that Adrian Drache was the leader of the whole thing... we can say he wasn't, officially....;) He has a way of manipulating things behind the scenes. Yes, the man is Ayeka's brother, Touga... He'll be able to help Ayeka with no problems, but I want him to meet up with the others first, a little argument between him and Felix would be interesting.

"There will be no need to find me." Said Felix, as he scowled and landed a couple of feet from Touga. SLowly dismouting Aero (who was giving Touga teh evil eye) he walked over to him, and caught the ruby glimmer of the Drache creast. "Another Drache, i see. The woods must be full of them tonight. Perhaps i should have silvered my blade as well....."

"My name is Felix. I assume that you are Ayeka's brother? An honor to meet you." He said, bowing slightly but a look of complete distrust marked his face. In reference to a friend who's name means cabbage, and he's sick: "Poor cabbage, he's wilting." -Blake

Knive could not believe twhat he was seeing. Felix was acting like more of a child then he was, and he had over 200 years more to his life then he did.

"Felix!" Knive shouted.

"Get on your gryffon, and take point for us, we will have to keep out baring for a while while we try and handle Ayeka's wounds." Knives ordered. Felix looked like he was about to protect, but Knives again backed aloud.

"Dont argue with me Felix. We dont have time for bullshit, now act like the man you are and handle the situation. Just ebcause they have an evil father does not mean they are evil, now stop being a jackass, and get up there and keep us safe!" Knives shouted. Felix flinched at Knives's 'creative' language.

If they were going to make it anywhere with this difunctional group, they would need an impartial leader, and Knives saw himself as the one for the job.

Touga eased Ayeka off the mare, and she winced in pain as he accidentally jostled her shoulder. Her eyes opened and they focused on Touga.

"Touga?" She breathed, and she gasped in pain. "How, how bad?"

Touga's ice blue eyes where dark with worry. "I don't know.... we'll have to get that arrow out to be sure. What you think as your weakness has been your savior you know... had you been born a full pureblood, you'd be dead now..."

He motioned to Knives to that the young man could brace Ayeka. "Keep her steady..." He said and pulled on the arrow's silver head. It was coated with silver a couple inches up the shaft. "Someone knew what they where doing.." He growled.

He pulled it free a little more till his slender fingers found the wooden haft, not cold metal. He gripped her shoulder tightly and with a quick motion, snapped the silver arrowhead from the wooden shaft. Ayeka cried out as he pulled the arrow's shaft free from her shoulder....and allowed the wound to bleed freely.

"Don't staunch the bleeding, we have to clean the silver-poisoning from the wound, then purge it from her body...." He said grimly. He searched a pack that he had taken from his horse. He pulled out a glass flask filled with a smoke colored liquid and handed this with a clean cloth to Knives.

"Use that to clean her wound...." He said. He pulled another container out, this one made of brass dragon scales. He pulled out the crystal stopper and lifted the containter to Ayeka's lips. She willingly took a swallow, she choked almost immediately.

"Damn..." He swore. "Listen little sister, you have got to drink this... if you don't you won't survive till sunrise!" He said, his voice firm. This time she didn't choke, but she still swallowed the bitter liquid with difficulty.

He motioned for Knives to move and he then cradled Ayeka against his chest. He took the cloth that knives had been using and soaked it with the remainder of the smoke-colored liquid. He tore the cloth in half and then folded each piece over the entry and exit wound. He then tightly bound her shoulder with strips of clean cloth.

"If you would, knives, keep an eye out..." Touga said, smiling at the younger man. "Just stay over there by that tree..." when he had done as Touga had asked, Touga pulled free a small steel dagger. The blade flashed in the dim moonlight, and he brought it across his wrist... The liquid he had given her was only preparing her body for his own blood, the powerful healing qualities it contained...

Ayeka stirred as he pressed the wound to her lips... and he winced as she began to drink. "Thats it take what is rightfully mine to freely give... You'll be fine." He murmered, his free hand stroking her long blonde hair. After a few moment, he gently pulled her away, and calling Jennah, lay her back as the wolf lay down, allowing Ayeka to rest her head against the wolf's white furred shoulder.

He un-clasped his cloak, and lay it over her, she was shivering in the cool wind. "Sleep for a bit..." he said and turned from her. Nightshade sneezed and stayed by Ayeka's side. He returned to Knives' side. "I want you to remember one thing... She gave her word, and nearly her life to protect you." He said it, but not unkindly. He knew that this boy had defended them, both of them, though Touga's soul bore the darkness of his earlier years.

To Knives, Touga's aura was brilliant white at the center, like Ayeka's, but it was shadowed by grey and red on the outside....as though he struggled to make up for past mistakes.

"Touga...That's very impressive." Remarked Felix, his curiosity beating out his suspicion. "You, no doubt, have had several run-ins with vampire hunters before."

He looked at Touga with a kind of amused intrest mixed with caution. "You're Ayeka's brother, eh? Lucky, indeed, to have one such of pure heart and soul, though your bloodline is marked with corruption. I know of Lord Drache's ways firsthand...let me help."

"I know of her words. Had she not been here, we would have all been dead. Thus i am bound by my honor, as much as it displeases me, to be in debt of Ayeka. He shuttered slightly as he watched him give her his blood, but quickly composed himself. "There are many vampire hunters here. It was probaly one of my kind, for that matter. Lord Drache did not leave a good impression on us. He also, accidently, let it slip he was a vampire. From a distance, Knives would be unrecognizable and I was in the air."

POD and I are doing our best to work with you.... Every character has it's quirks... As I am sure that Felix and Touga will clash majorly ;).

BIC: Touga cast a cold glance at Felix. "Your honor means nothing to me, in my mind you have done quite enough Elf. It's your scorn for her that drove her to protect the boy with her own life..." He looked towards Knives and shook his head.

"Why blame the children for the sins of the Father? Neither of us had anything to do with what happened to you...and I watched Ayeka kill him... Lord Drache is dead." He snarled, his fist clenched suppressed anger.

"even if he was alive.... Why would she betray you? To stay in the graces of a Father that tried to murder her the day she was born? You're a fool if you belive she would turn away and betray you."

Felix nodded. "It appears that you can bring her back. If not, then i grieve for you, and i meant that."

"If your father is dead then why did Ayeka see images of him in someone else's brain? He's been working with the Black Guard, and unless one can put up barriers against your kind then how could it be? It appears we are both stumped. The grudge is not personal, i assure you, Touga. Most of my people would kill you on the spot.....however i don't believe that would be wise. Besides, you're not in the vision. So the question is, do you leave before that, or do you die before that?"

A slow smile crept onto his face. "Myself, Knives' caretaker Kistel, Ayeka, and the mage over there have had vision. Knives, Ayeka, Adrian, the mage, and I are fighting a great darkness. You're not in it." "Oh yeah, Eliar Swiftfire Doofus Extraordinaire Self-confesed Lecher and Narcissistic+Egomaniacal Boy-Mage. The perfect rolemodel for little kids."-Alanded

My Prince, if I may, i would suggest you tell this man what happened.... Aero interrupting nervously while eating a goat.

...Not at this point.... Felix responded.

"We will also say that the rest of the Wilder Elves will not take as kindly to you as i will."

*****

Yes i'm double posting. Shoot me.

Between these two i'm afraid that i'mgoign to have to comment on somethign: Felix does suddenly hate Ayeka. He knows he can't trust her anyone becuase that is exactly what Lord Drache did- he was kind with the King and then decapitated him. Besides, it's not like some of your characters have the required amount of brain cells either........

Beyond that, Felix lost his life (figuratly speaking) to Lord Drache. He's goign to be cold and shield himself becuase he's afraid that Ayeka will indeed do what Drache did. And if you "Cant advance the story" then let us do it. Me and Kalia have advanced DL legacy and Fernwood which are both excellent posts. you have to go with the flow as well. As for a change in Felix, that is my descion, not yours. And Knives, i'm sure you can make something up.

Felix is indeed shocked by Knives' actions but he is more angry and the acutally shocked. Felix, when pissed, fights and dosent run. Besides, Felix wouldn't listen to a human boy so many years yonger, even if it wasnt Knives.

If we keep screwing with your ideas then i'm personally sorry but it's up to you to improvise. Neo: What do you want?

Touga's blue eyes narrowed, and he stood, slowly. "What do we have to do to prove that we want to help? Lord Drache tried to kill us both... His own Children!" He snarled, making no further move, Touga wasn't stupid.

He made a gesture towards Ayeka's unconcious form. "She nearly gave her life for you... Had i not been here, this "Vision" of yours would have been shattered."

He turned back towards Felix... "Nightshade... Show him." He said

The grey and black wolf stood, her golden eyes locked onto Felix... And immediately he was immersed in the memories of the wolf....

A dark man appeared behind a woman with long black hair, and cat-like green eyes. A young woman with shoulder lenght black hair and silver robes stood near who was undoubtedly Ayeka and Touga, and they both gasped in shock. They were in a lot of trouble. Ayeka stared, dumbfounded. "Father?!" she cried. Lord Adrian Drache smiled, a wicked cruel smile. "Dear child...you still don't understand do you...." he laughed.

"You where never meant to live...Your mother's madness was mine...I had complete control over her from the moment she agreed to be mine." Drache laughed, and his eyes swept to a man with platinum hair and amber eyes. The outrage in this man's eyes was palpable.

Drache only laughed. "Oh yes young Lord Crane...the whole time...your promise to Sheris...Her madness, all of this was my doing...of course...it didn't happen the way I wanted...I underestimated your determination Alucardt...that sleep spell...you threw it off easily...Your willingness to fulfill your promise saved my daughter and killed my wife..." Drache walked around the circle of guards, glaring at each of those held within in turn.

"I couldn't just come out and kill you both without just cause you see...I haven't held this position for the last 600 years by doing that..." Drache's eyes settled on Touga. "Pity...now I have to find a new wife...for I have suddenly run out of Heirs." he hissed, his eyes golden.

"Guards of this city...Heed your lord and master!! Taryn...Keep your agreement...Akhusunamun...Kill them!!" He ordered, laughing.

The vision swam and the wolf moved to stand beside her partner. Touga wasn't even looking at Felix. "He manipulated all of us, to gain his own ends. Lady Sheris, my stepmother, he used her in attempt to take AYeka's newborn life. He used Me, to try to stop my own sister, kill her if nessicary... " Grief choked touga's voice and he looked up.

Its like one massive plot stopper because you are so stubborn you wont confom with anything any player tries to do.I have a really good story idea, and that conforms with my idea, and allows for alteration, but right now we are stuck in this one spot and no one can do anything, because of Felix.

Felix looked at Knives. "Do not comment on what you do not understand. Your life was taken as well from you, but I'm afraid that it was somehow different from mine. Call it a family matter...in both ways. I woud lik it very much if you stayed out of it until my dispute with Touga and Ayeka is settled. As for fighting me, you'd lose."

He then watched the scene between them and Lord Drache.

The elf nodded bitterly as he called off the archers. He looked down as a wad of emotion was lodged in his throat.

"Conniving bastard...." he said and sweared very vividly in Kagonesti. "Gods damn his soul......It appears everyone he makes contact ends up worse."

As the sheer rage against the Drache name lessened he realized what he had done to Ayeka and now Touga was horrid.....he'd isolated and made them feel inferior, all becuase of his anger and a completely different person... . and practically shut off his only chance at true revenge.

"Gods forgive me." he whispered as he walked overto Touga. "I'm sorry, Touga. My rage blinded me. Thank you for opening my eeyes to the truth: Lord Adrian Drache is not associated with you except for the crest, the name, and the species..."

"And know this, had I wanted to, if I followed my Father's Ideals, I wouldn't have bothered to save my sister... and I wouldn't be standing here, talking."

"I would have volunteered." Felix said quietly. "But i guess we both need time to think."

Felix slowly took off his bedroll from Aero's back and unrolled it on a patch of rockless ground. However he didn't get into it, he stared at the fire instead. His thoughts mixed up like a tangle of brambles- he wanted to organize so badly but it hurt when he did. Neo: What do you want?

Touga watched the boy walk down the path, towards the road. Knives reminded him of Ayeka's older boy, Jadrek... and Touga smiled. He turned, and then cast a glance over his shoulder.

"watch her Nightshade." He said as he walked up to Knives. THe wolf sneezed and locked her eyes onto Felix as she passed him then lay down at Ayeka's side.

Touga walked up to the younger man. "Knives is it? thank you for helping me with Ayeka... Is there something you want to talk about?" He asked, his pale blue eyes filled with uncharacteristic concern for the human boy.

"Well, im not normally one to talk of my feelings, but ya, I can use it." Knive said loking at the older vampire.

"I dont know what to do here really. We need to get to Silvinost quickly, and we will need all the help we can get, and yet I find it hard to work with a person as ugly in character is Felix. And I dont know how far we can get really without alot more help..." Knives said. He seemed older as he worried about such thigns as a leader would. Knives didnt appear to have it in him to be a leader, but it seemed he was starting to warm up to the job. Funny, the youngest was mostly likly going to be left with such a responsibility.

He watched Knives talk to Touga.....and somehow though that Knives was talking about him.

I made a mistake.......can't he forgive me....? He thought ot himself now lost in his own sadness.

He turned back to stare into the fire. It shaped into a elven face. His father, the King. FElix looked at the fire, a shape in his past, as sadness overwhelmed him and he slowly began to cry. His tears fizzled in the fire.Neo: What do you want?

Touga's eyes darkened as Knives' said that he was pure, and he shook his head.

"No, you speak of AYeka truely, but you are mistaken about me... Had Felix tried to hurt her, I would have killed him...silver arrows or not." His hand closed tightly, and he felt the stinging pain of the newly healed wound in his wrist.

He pulled the cloth bandage off. "I was born a pureblood, I was raised in the darkness of my father's shadow... That darkness still lingers in me, and always will."

"We'll get to Silvanost without fail..."

Ayeka stirred, and Jennah whined softly. "Felix?" She murmered, her voice still thready and weak... She heard his soft sobs...

"I'm sorry for giving you the cold shoulder......." He said, as his tears resumed flowing. Neo: What do you want?

Ayeka tried to move, but Jennah snapped at her. She relented and remained where she was.

"I- I think I understand... My father has done terrible things..." She said softly

"you don't know me, why should you trust me? Touga.. he's really here isn't he?" She mused softly, and turned her head towards Felix.

The moon wa shigh in the sky, as a clam a traquil feeling set among the grove the group was hidding in. Knives was just not sure how long it would last."To see your world in a grain of sand,

"Neither is Touga... Neither was I before that confrontation twenty-six years ago..."

She groaned slightly and Jennah intruded in her thoughts.

Rest... there will be plenty fo time to talk in the morning. The wolf sent to her, and meeting Felix's eyes, relayed the same to him. (OOC: the wolves are inherintly telepathic with their chosen, but they must meet the eyes of others to "speak" to them)

--------------------

Touga nodded. "If you wish to think that I cannot argue.." He paused and looked up at the moons above. "My step-mother, AYeka's mother had that ability... Too bad she didn't pass it on." He smiled and then looked back at Knives. "What does it look like? my Aura?" He wondered.

OOC: Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. Things have been hectic lately.

BIC: Adrian had been listening from leaning against a tree. The anger, every emotion had filled him. He could not belive the tension until it finally calmed down. He said a few words and his sleeping bag appeared on the ground. For now, he would sleep and let his mind relax.

05/18/2003 9:07 PM

Touga nodded without saying another word. He understood all too well what he was capable of... the Death he had wrought in the past... He sighed and then rested his hand reassuringly on Knives' shoulder.

"I'm going back to the camp... Wake me for the next watch..." He said softly and returned.

He walked over to his gelding and pulled out a soft cloth and a stiff brush. Silently he removed the saddle and tack, and then rubbed the bay gelding down. Nytehart nosed in and he gladly gave her a rub down as well. He left their bridles on, tying the gelding's reins to the pommel of his saddle, and tying Nytehart's to the leather loop that was sewn onto the bare-back pad.

He put down several handfuls of mixed grains into a pair of thin metal pans... The mare and Gelding both munched happily on the offering. He patted the Gelding affectionately as he replaced the saddle and tack.. He pulled his bed-roll off , and stretched it out beside Ayeka.

"A little nap will help... " He said as his wolf cast him a reproachful look.

You gave your Endra much... You need rest... you're weaker than a day old pup... Nightshade sent, and she sneezed. Jennah nipped playfully at her packmate's ear. Shade tolerated it for a moment and nipped back.

Touga chuckled. I'll be fine Endral... Just a little nap.... He sent back as his mind drifted to a troubled sleep...

Knive slooked out past the grove, and wondered, yet again, hoe long, this reprive in the action would last.

Finally after a while, he grew tired. It was time for someone else to take the watch."To see your world in a grain of sand,

"Go on, get some sleep..." He said to Knives.

Touga didn't look towards Felix...but he nodded once. "I think I can understand..." he said softly, unwilling to break the peaceful silence in the grove. "For a good portion of my life I had thought my sister misguided.... and then in one flash of light on a silver blade that we where struggling over... If I hadn't remembered what happened the night she was born, I would have killed her...."

His head lowered, his long hair obscuring his features. The fire burned low and he used a log to bank it against the growing winds. "I have been raised in my father dark shadow... and in some ways I am like him...I have killed...and have done so countless times mercilessly.

"I was not raised in shadow, perhaps that is why I feel this way.....I was raised in limelight...a prince. Prince of the Kagonesti......" He looked up into Solinari, shedding it's silver light onto the group. "Then we met up with teh Black Guard...i was niave...very niave. Your father came with gifts...power, guards, magic, peace..."

"There was one time...one time he came. He had these men around him. My father...my father told me to go inside, we would learn..i always loved learning. Those eyes...Drache's eyes.....In the castle my tutor told me to go to the Inn.....it was called Narina Soli that's Twilight Falls in your language...."

Taking his gaze from the Silver moon, he started back into the fire. "From there i saw my father dead....his blood stained the ground. I saw him raise a bloodstained sword...he shouted his name, which has been a mystery for so long, now i know....from there the castle fell. And now the Kagonesti settlement was degenerated back into a simply little town, from a small city."

Touga had been about to intervene when he heard a footstep behind him. Ayeka reached for his arm to steady her shakey steps. "Stop fighting...." She breathed softly, she was still weak, but the wound on her shoulder seemed to be healed, a pale white scar marked the arrows' damage.

"Can't you feel it?" She asked and gestured to the animals. The two wolves paced about, both sniffing at the ground or the air in agitation. The horses, milled restlessly... AYeka's mare was more alert and calm, while Touga's gelding reared halfway before Nytehart checked him with a gentle nip.

"This grove feels peaceful at first, but dig deeper... Knives, you have that abililty...search further and you will feel that it is like a cold, wet blanket on your power... this is a trap...." She said, her voice slowly gaining strength.

Ayeka's words protruded into his head. "She is right," every time he spoke, he seemed to get weaker. "This grove... is a trap." He fell to his knees. "This grove is draining my strength, and magic." His whole body seemed to shake. Then he blacked out....

Touga didn't need to be told twice. Nytehart accepted the packs without struggle. The mare stood rock still as Touga helped his sister onto the mare's back. Ayeka leaned against the mare's neck...her breathing still a little ragged.

Touga turned and led his gelding over to knives. "I'm assuming you know how to ride on your own? Take Kori, he's not battle trained, but he's a well mannered beast. I'll have to ride double with Ayeka..." He said as he handed Knives the reins.

Jennah and Nightshade where waiting for them, both of them where growling, their eyes fixed on the shadows behind them all.

Knives hugged the horse as it speed off at it's highest possible speed. Mage-Fire flew over Knives head as he tried desperately to get away. He couldnt look back, because he had to drive the mare. So who could not shoot back.

BIC: Ayeka was barely aware of the flight away from the glade. She clung to her brother as he drove the battlemare to her limits...

Touga cursed softly as he glanced back, He had virtually no magic power, only the sunstone around his neck allowed him to wander during the daylight hours... Ayeka had all the magical talent....inherited from their father no doubt....

Nightshade sneezed in the dust stirred from the horses hoves. Touga turned in the saddle and looked back to the forest's edge... "damn..." He swore softly, but continued to their renevous site...

"We should keep going, take refuge in the next town... Adrian should be able to sleep while Aero flies...." She said softly, her eyes fixed on the forest edge. The battlemare pawed the earth restlessly, and then tossed her head in seeming agreement.

"We'll also need to get another horse, for Knives...." Touga added as he turned the mare's head back to the Path...

"Come on..." He said, urging the mare back into a ground-eating lope, the wolves following in his wake.

"No need." Knives said, "I am a Hunter. I live by the ways of stealth, and can sneak past the guards. I'll meet you at Kingsport in 3 days, and from there we will get passage across the seas."

And with that, Knive disappeared into the trees."Too often we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember how it takes 42 mucles in your face to frown, BUT it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and bitch slap that mother fu*ker upside the head."

Touga slid from Nytehart's back and swung up into the Bay Gelding's saddle. "Do we part here as well Felix? Meet back up in Kingsport?" Ayeka asked, the Mare pawing at the ground restlessly.

Touga had turned the gelding around, to stand shoulder to shoulder with AYeka's Mare.

Felix nodded, "Kingsport. I have a couple of things I need to take care of. I suppose Adrian can tag along if he wishes." (http://images.quizilla.com/T/trinitykills/1053662988_z3thetwins.jpg" border="0)want it.

Knives ran through the brush at a hunter's speed. He had his bow out, and an arrow noked, ready to fire. He was determined to make it to Kingsport, no matter how many Black Guards he had to slay.

Knives knew that the empire spanne dout from the east. Knives knew thge empire had trampled several of the old kingdoms, and it was now the only ruling body with any power on Anselon.

Knives when that whatever this fight was going to be, it would be a hell of a job."Too often we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember how it takes 42 mucles in your face to frown, BUT it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and bitch slap that mother fu*ker upside the head."

Felix put one hand on the Griffon's feathery mane as the winged beast shot into the sky, at the order of his master.

Where shall we go, my Prince?

I don't know, Aero. Go wherever you feel like. I'm feeling particullary lethargic right now. Pick a place.

Thank you, my Prince. (http://images.quizilla.com/T/trinitykills/1053662988_z3thetwins.jpg" border="0)want it.

Ayeka and Touga raced on, Touga slightly in the lead. Ayeka followed her bother without comment, the shadows of the two wolves dogged their trail.

She knew where he was leading....the arrow wound had healed, but she had lost a considerable ammount of blood. She felt dizzy just riding, havens forbid if she should have to walk any far distance.

Her brother knew as she did, his blood would have sped her healing, but wouldn't have done anything to sustain her... she would have to feed....and soon.

Knives sat on the side of the road, with his ear to the ground. He listened silently.

"Damn." Knives said to himself.

He could hear footfalls on the ground, and they didnt sound human...they were much to large for that.

Knives unsheathed his simitar."Too often we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember how it takes 42 mucles in your face to frown, BUT it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and bitch slap that mother fu*ker upside the head."
