Marfa Shrine (Archive Repost)

Post by Priestess Thalia »

After a hearty meal served by Cyrla and Ialin, Thalia was ready for bed. Ialin led then upstairs and to a pair of bedrooms on the top floor, directly across the hall from each other.

"Well, here you are," Ialin said to the pair, point to both rooms. "Take which ever you like. If you need anything, Cyrla and I are next door," Ialin then pointed to the doors behind them, near the top of the stairs. "Sleep well," the priestess bid them goodnight, then retired to her own room.

Thalia turned to Avion with a blush and leaned toward Avion to place a kiss on his cheek. "Goodnight, Avion," she said warmly. With a beaming smile, she entered her room and closed to the door behind her.

She had enjoyed their time together, even if he wasn't the most knowledgeable about her life. He was so sweet and innocent though. Thalia wasn't ready to marry, but if she ever did, a man like him would be her choice. Perhaps, if she kept him near as a guardian, they could fully nurture a strong relationship. The priestess disrobed and changed into a simple night shift before crawling into bed.

"Uh, um... Goodnight Thalia!" Avion was too slow to react and ended up bidding a closed door good night.

He paused for a moment, before realizing his cheeks were flushed with a deep crimson. He waddled over to his room and closed the door as gently as he could.

His eyes barely registered the room around him, instead he took the sole unoccupied bed and sat down, stairing at the wall.
His face was still flushed and hot as he pondered on thoughts of Thalia. His thoughts formed into fantasies and he soon caught himself in the middle of wanting to take a peak into Thalia's room.

"Gah!" Avion shook his head violently, hoping to literally shake the dirty thoughts from his head, "Oh, Avion you big oaf: She's a priestess!"

Avion finally began to sober up, "and I'm a farm boy. She has her job to do."

He stretched out over the soft bed. The cool blankets were welcom after such a long day and such a big meal. He tried to think of tasks to be done tomorrow, but Avion's thoughts kept sliding back to Thalia. The way she walked, the way her voices glided in the air. Her delicacy and her smiles. It was enough to drive a man crazy with desire.

Flustered and frustrated, yet satisfied, Avion forced his eyes shut, hoping sleep would come soon...
...But it never did.

Terild and Dart made their way out of the inn and across town to the Marfa shrine. They scouted out the building further, and found that Dart could easily enter Thalia's room through the window. Meanwhile, Terild's only option for silence was to sneak in through the backdoor, then upstairs to Avion's bedroom door.

So, the Marmo assassin did so. He picked the lock of the temple's back door, then slipped in through the kitchen, then up the stairs.

The two priestesses had to be subdued as well. Terild had a chemical that would release a gas to knock them out, but he had to break into their rooms first. He picked the lock of Cyrla's door first, and the old priestess was sleeping too deeply to be woken by the small clicking and door opening.

Terild stalked into her room silently. He soaked a strip of cloth in the poison and laid it over Cyrla's lips. There wasn't much visible effect, but she didn't wake, and Terild slipped out to repeat the process on Ialin.

Then, he went to the door of his target. He assumed Avion was asleep when he began picking the lock. Dart had watched him through Cyrla's window, so now he should have been slipping into Thalia's room.

Everything was in place, Dart had waited after heading back to the temple, there were still lookouts. And the young man waited until he was sure the things wound down and people had likely gone to bed.
When the time was right he moved, keeping to shadows and stepping lightly, the assassin had come with only light clothing a few daggers and a short sword. He had cloth strips he use for ties and a gag. And a rope and hook, should he need it. But hooks were noisy and Dart had to make his way up the side of the wall to the room window he was sure Thalia slept in by hand.

He almost slipped several times, but providence and luck allowed him to make his way up the wall until he was at the lip of her window sill. It took a bit of gentle fiddling with the window’s lock to get it to open, but placing a cloth over the lock worked to muffle the sound and he moved with sureness and stealth as he gently pushed the window open and crawled in.

Dart kept to the floor, crawling like a snake slowly and breathing as quietly and evenly as possible. She was in bed, sleeping and vulnerable. The assassin moved slowly then rose until he noticed the priestess’s sleeping form.
*There you are sweet meat…heh… I’ve got a bit of time and hmm yeahhhh…why not…sure put a krink in her bloody god’s disposition.*
The assassin moved slowly and easily crawling on the bed until he was on top of the priestess, and in moments clamped a hand around her mouth. It was obvious what he intended.

Tiny metallic scratching sounds robbed Avion of any peace he would have this night.
He rose in his bed, looking around to find the source of his annoyance.
These temple mice sure are noisy, He thought to himself.

Avion stretched his body around and looked under the bed. Finding nothing but undisturbed dust and wooden planks, he looked up at the door and finally found the source of the stratching at the door's knob.

"Wait a minute... Mice don't know how to open doors..." Avion whispered quietly, hoping his voice wouldn't awaken Thalia or any of the other preisthood.

Thalia was sleeping deeply. Dart could have walked to her bedside if he wanted to. She didn't wake until he was ontop of her and his hand over her mouth. She shrieked as loud as she could, though it was muffled by his hand. The priestess thrashed, punching at him and trying to kick. If she couldn't get him off, the sound she made would likely rouse someone in the quiet shrine.

Avion's door creaked open, revealing a lean man clad in black. The same man who visited the temple earlier with two friends, claiming to be a mercenary and devout worshipper of Marfa.

Terild's eyes widened as he saw that his target was still awake. It looked like there would be a fight. Terild drew a pair of short swords and stood ready to take on Avion.

From across the hall came the sound of a muffled scream and quite a bit of thrashing. It sounded like Dart was having a hard time with the priestess.

OOC: If Avion wants to help Thalia, jump to that thread when he gets to her door.

Avion, seeing his aggressor leapt from his bed, his heavy feet crashing onto the wooden floor with a fleshy thud. It was then Avion heard the muffled screams.

"Thalia!" Avion cried past his attacker.

Reason and self preservation gave in to passion and with a roar that startled himself, Avion barreled through the door way, hoping the force of his sheer mass and the suddeness of his bull rush would knock the attacker off balance long enough to rush to Thalia's aid. He could hear the sounds of struggle in the room beyond the door way, but could not see beyond the man clad in black.

"Damn you! - Outta my way!"

Thalia heard Avion shouting from outside her door. She tried to scream again, though with all the noise he was making, she wouldn't be heard now.
