Waiting

Two malcontent sons of the dark elf Kiran set out to find him and make him pay for his crimes against their mothers. Meanwhile, Kiran is trying to escape death long enough to meet his youngest son with the dark elf Thiana.

Waiting

Post by Adriel »

As Adriel and Mica waited for Sythenra and Yrsanne to return, Adriel grew restless. He wished he had joined them, and Yrsanne's parting comment stung a bit. He regretted not being more useful, it started out as his search after all. While Mica rested, Adriel scouted the woods to the east, but he didn't stray too far from his brother.

However, he could find nothing useful, and he didn't have Sythenra or Yrsanne's skill. He knew how to fight, that was all. With his searching fruitless, he returned to Mica to wait for the women.

That night, Yrsanne had patiently awaited Kiran's departure. And once they had, she conducted a series of summons in a far grander ritual. It took great patience and effort to have gnome follow Kiran and his friends long enough to ensure their trail would not be picked up. Perhaps more difficult was to create a new trail, readable by both herself and Sythenra as authentic. For a shaman of her stature, it was far from impossible. But, by the end of it, her prowess waned. She was certain that even Sythenra would not be able to tell the difference. At last, she ensured that the spirits had fully departed the tracks to avoid any of them sensing the spirits had been active. The new path led them around the lake and through the roughest terrain between them and Shining Hill. The trek would certainly take them almost a full day's travel longer.

The dark elven shamaness came back to Adriel from behind. "Rested?" she asked, not bothering to greet him.

"Yes," Adriel answered immediately, hopping to his feet in the same breath. He didn't want to seem completely useless to her, despite the fact that he had completely left the work to her and Sythenra even though it was his quest.

"Mica is asleep," he said, stating the obvious. His half-brother had fallen into a deep sleep, no doubt catching up on hours of missed sleep. Admittedly, Mica needed it, probably more than the rest of them. Perhaps a good night's sleep would be in all of their best interest. Adriel desire to find Kiran seemed to have dulled, perhaps because his anger was so weak and pitiful compared to Mica's rage. Perhaps this had become more of Mica's quest for vengence now, and he, Yrsanne, and Sythenra were just along for the ride.

Yrsanne stopped over the sleeping form of Mica. Her hair fell about her face, shadowing the contempt on her lips and eyes. It was so tempting. Who needed Kiran to trap him or be bait? She could just finish it there. Her deft fingers drew her sword and sheath from her sash. Men had died for less. Her thumb stroked the hilt, easily able to draw it. A decent gash could poison him. They were too far away to find a cure. He would die for his lunacy. Maybe then something could get done without broken skulls or the shouts of angry townspeople. Oh, how tempting it was to end it right there, right in front of Adriel. No more of that overgrown half-breed telling her who was boss...

Her soft step landed on the other side of him as she passed. "Good," she whispered. "Then keep watch. Wake me when Mica gets up." Yrsanne settled up against a tree and leaned her blade up against it. "I'll tell you where Kiran is then."

I did not even ask if she found him... Adriel realized, rather shocked by his own lack of interest. Indeed, Mica had become the focus of attention. "Wait, you found something?" Adriel questioned, stepping over to Yrsanne's tree.

Yrsanne pulled her long skirt close to her legs, leaving the excess off to the side. "Of course," she said, disinterested in the topic. She looked back up at Adriel for a moment before closing her eyes and resting her head back.

Adriel sighed. Yrsanne did not seem to be interested in revealing what she knew, and he doubted he could pry the information from her. Before he could demand answers, Sythenra stepped out of the forest within his line of sight.

The ranger had actually done little searching. She knew in what direction the tracks had gone, but when presented with the opportunity to find Kiran, she balked. Aside from that, she was exhausted, and not only physically. The tension within the group over Mica was tiresome to her, and so, that combined with her hesitation led her to enter the forest on her own, travel far enough to get some peace and quite, and she simply rested. If Yrsanne found Kiran, surely there would be enough commotion for her to find them, or a signal through the fairies or other spirit.

However, despite all her efforts to just relax, Sythenra had been overcome with anxiety. They were close on Kiran's tail, after all, and it was a good possibility that Yrsanne could have found him. There was no sign of it though. As dawn drew near, Sythenra decided it was time to return, and so, she made her way back to the point at which they left Adriel and Mica.

"I found nothing," she announced simply as she saw Adriel.

"Yrsanne has," he said sharply to Sythenra. The young dark elf glanced back up at Yrsanne in the tree and demanded, "Why can you not tell us now?"

"There is no more need to rush," Yrsanne replied calmly. "I found their most recent camp site and found some things they left behind. A smarter man would have known better if a shaman was tracking him." Looking up to Adriel, she smiled. "Their tracks take them around the lake and to port. The only reason to go there is to return to Marmo." Dropping her eyes to her feet and letting her eyelids flutter closed, she punctuated the story. "Marmo is a corner they won't be able to escape from, so it doesn't matter how fast we move anymore."

Adriel was rather disappointed with Yrsanne's reply, but it was still a lead. "Very well then," he replied, the fire in his voice burnt out.

"Marmo..." Sythenra murmured. "That's where he said he would meet Mica. Perhaps he was telling the truth..."

Adriel shrugged. Now that he had an answer and a direction, he felt the anxiety drain from his body and he was suddenly struck with his exhaustion. "I would not know," he said dryly, then went back to his traveling pack and began to lay out his bedding to go to sleep.

Yrsanne smiled, pleased with herself and how much she knew Kiran was telling the truth. It was incredibly satisfying. Snuggling down into herself, she had every desire to sleep after so much summoning.
