Title: The Young Girl Limps Away
Post by: Dray on December 08, 2005, 12:24:56 PM
As Laren left to inform Julius of the violence of the evening, Kit quickly realized how difficult it was going to be getting to Ashe's Place, clear across Threshold.

The arrow had hit her square in her leg. Its metal tip scraped back and forth across the bone as she limped to Rosewalk. She dared not remove it, fearful she would open up the wound further and bleed even more.

She made it to the very stables the Protectorate had encountered the rats. Seemed like months ago now, as she leaned against the barn door, she wondered if she should try to take one. The quick observation of the lock on the door decided the matter.

She was startled as a sudden voice cryed out in the dark, "Kit, is that you?"

Kyle, holding aloft a covered lantern, approached her from the road.

"Sweet dreams young one. I promise that I won't feel any of the pain." Ashe says

Kit began to question exactly what he said but was soon overtaken by a slumber that seemed to be heavier than the tallest mountain.

As soon as he was certain that Kit was unconcious he skillfully removed the arrows and began to repair the damage.

Suddenly there was a knock at the door, "Hello, Ashe. You home? We could use some help." Dale asked from the other side of the door.

Ashe was in the midst of tying up Kit's wounds and looked around for a way to answer the door. Quickly realizing there was nor realistic way of doing it with out compromising some of his healing he replies, "Aye Dale, I'm home. Come on in. I've got my hands full with Kit right now...er, yeah."

Ashe grabs another wrap and continues to dress Kit's wounds.

“Others?” Kit asked. She sat up as best she could on the bed and smelled the tea. Ashe almost laughed at the face she made upon sniffing the foul concoction.

In absent-minded manner she sipped the tea, while asking him more questions. “Other Priests? Perhaps one of Paladine? Where are they coming from?”

Her smile was starting to fade, as the medicine started to work.

She suddenly looked at the tea, ‘Oh poopies that’s right!’

Ashe hands her a steaming cup of foul smelling tea and says, "Yes, I'm going to knock you out for this. This is no such pain that one such as yourself should have to endure. Oh, and to your other question...yes, that is the first of the priests to arrive. Julius informs me that the others will arriving in the next couple of days along with the other council members."

Kit lay on the bed trying not to focus on the pain of the wound. She detailed the battle with the odd dog beasts and the archers, the shot she took to the leg and the eventual meeting with Kyle. She hurried along through the story and Ashe soon came suspicious that she was trying to get to a matter that concerned her.

"...as we were passing the Temple of Shadows, a black robed figure departed from it and disappeared into the darkness. Do you know if he was a Priest?"

Ashe smiled to himself, 'ah, that was the matter then,' he thought. His back to her, he reached for one more herb for the mixture he was making. A mixture that would stop the artery from pouring her life-blood, after he ripped the arrow from her.

'The pain will be excrutiating', he thought.

"Are you going to knock me out for this?" she asked.

(OOC: Party Pooper) ;-)

Kyle took the last few steps to Ashe's house and knocked by kicking gently on the door. The door opens and Ashe's eyes widen, "Oh, Kit you're hurt! Thanks for helping her Kyle. Put her on the bed right there." Ashe points the bed in a close corner of the room.

Kyle gingerly places her on the bed wishing that this situation was without any injuries to her. "Thank You Kyle. I'm so glad that you were there to help me." Kit says.

"I'm just glad I could." he says.

"Ah, if you two are done romancing I have some healing to do?" Ashe says sarcastically.

"Oh! right. Ah...Ashe? Can I watch?" Kyle asks.

Angrily Ashe demands, "Be gone with you boy! There's work to be done in the town! Now go!"

Kyle waves at Kit and Kit waves back then Kyle leaves.

As Ashe makes a steaming concoction he askes, "So tell me about what happened out there."

(OOC: You can continue on if you like or it can end here.)

"Oh, um...." Kit was thankful she didn't embarrass him with the thought of her in a sleeping gown. She had nervously bitten her lip right after she had said it, wincing at her foolishness.

"...I purchased a book on tailoring on my journey to Threshold. I thought it rare that someone would take the time to scribe their trade in such detail. The book has taught me quite a bit."

The door to Ashe's places was getting real close. The pain in her leg was excruciating and she was dizzy from blood loss.

(OOC, Nothing for nothing WF, but unless Kyle is going to tell me a big secret about Threshold, or attempt to cop a feel, let's close this up).

Kyle laughs, "Great Paladine I wish I could be lazy some days! But between working the shop AND tending fields I barely have time for anything else. I do make it a point to meet with Maal for my training...which has only been once or twice. What do you like to read? Philosophy? Legends? History?"

Kit took a noted intake of breath in surprise.

"Um," she said, hesitant to answer. 'I can't tell him about my journey with Laren, and he doesn't need to know,' she thought.

"Sometimes I like to spend time in my room reading. Those couple of days I just didn't make it out of my sleeping gown. I can be lazy sometimes." she said.

"Oh it's really no trouble at all. I'm just glad that I can help you.  As soon as we get to Ashe's he'll fix you up good and proper and it'll be like it never happened." Kyle says.

"I...I happened to notice that you were scarce a few days ago. Not that I follow you around or anything. But you weren't there when your friends killed Rawling in the old house. Did you go somewhere?"

"Do you think we can stop by the well? I am so thirsty and hot, maybe we could dunk my blouse in the water."

"It would have been a lot worse had I walked this distance. Thank you so much for helping me Kyle. Your arms must be so tired." Kit said, not lifting her head from his shoulder.

Kyle's face was completely overcome with his smile. In his mind he was pretending that he just slew the dragon and was king of all Elsenban. His heart was light and he found a new strength for his now weary arms. He would carry her to the islands in the north if she asked.

He could barely see Ashe's house up ahead. Suddenly he realized that his spontaneous stroke of luck in helping her was coming to an end. He didn't want her to suffer but he wanted to talk with her some more. "How's your leg Kit?"

The memory of Warden came again to her unbidden, as it did on the Rosewalk when Kyle had tried to give her the hairpiece. She became quiet as she faced the dilemma of what to do yet again.

She so didn't want this young man to come to harm, but on the other hand, she was so tired of being closed in. The days and nights of hiding in the room at the Inn were becoming tedious.

If she could only just break free of her past, and not be the Seer running away from a dire enemy, if only she could be normal[/i] for just a little while.

But what if Kyle came to the same fate as Warden? She wouldn't be able to live with herself.

But she couldn't just disappoint him, she didn't want people to not like her.

In a small voice she said, "It would be an honor to wear the hair piece, when I am healed, let's talk more about it."

Kyle kept walking swiftly away from the dark temple and an unusually quiet Doubeck's Festhall just across the street. He was silent after her statement trying to formulate a response.

Not wanting to ignore her statement Kyle says, "I must admit, I was really confused by that. But if I thought you a monster I wouldn't be carrying you to Ashe's house."

Kyle walked on hoping that he didn't sound too sarcastic and resentful. To kill any suspicion that he might be he says, "Y'know, I still have it if...if you change your mind. It would look so beautiful in your soft golden hair."

Kyle winced at his awkward stupidity. Kit was different than the other girls in town and he wanted so much to impress her.

Kit would have missed the temple and the robed figure had Kyle not mentioned them. Snapping her head around she watched the figure blend into the darkness and disappear from view.

"Could it be?" she thought. "Could a priest be in Threshold?" Her pulse quickened at the thought, and she strained her neck trying to regain view of the figure. But alas, it was gone, and she had to return her weary head to Kyle's shoulder.

She made a note to herself to ask Julius or Jarmok about it. After a moment, she remembered he had asked a question.

"The day you tried to give me the gift, that beautiful hair piece." Kit paused, as her head spun with the former effort.

"I am so sorry for acting the way I did. I am sure you took a long time in crafting something so beautiful, only to have it cast back so thoughtlessly. You must think me a monster." Kit said, her voice quiet and slightly broken.

His body was warm, his embrace surprisingly gentle as he carried her to safety. For someone only slightly older than her, he sure was strong.

"Huh? What do you mean?..." Kyle suddenly felt awkward thinking that maybe he caused her to feel bad somehow. He wanted the perfection of the moment to last for a long time before reality crept back in.

The two of them were passing the Temple of Shadows as Kyle was talking. He noticed a black robed figure exiting the front door. The windows were glowing purple and an eerie purple tinted mist covered the foreground toi the temple. "...what do you think that's all about?"

Kyle quickened his pace passing by the dark building.

Kit was quiet for a few moments, while Kyle carried her. They were still a ways from Ashe's Place, her leg throbbed in pain and she didn't dare raise her head.

"I am sorry for acting that way Kyle."

Kyle looked down to her and says, "Well when you work in a the only butcher and leather shop in town you hear people talking. Someone's always dishing rumors about somesuchthing. Who knows how they start? I usually pin it on old dog Coryndar. He's always sticking his nose where it don't belong. My dad says that he's sure to get it bit off one day if'n he don't watch who he crosses."

Kyle imagined himself carrying his fair maiden back down the forest trail with arrows buzzing by his head and bouncing off his shield.

Kit lifted her head, for which she was rewarded with a near blackout.

Her head half fell back onto his shoulder. She felt him tense, before he could put her down and gush with worry, she summoned the will to speak and distract him from her condition.

"Caves south of here? Really?" Kit proceeded, as best she could, to describe the horrific beasts in detail. "...they were really scary, where did you hear the rumors?"
Title: The Young Girl Limps Away
Post by: Wildfire on December 22, 2005, 03:04:44 PM
Kyle instantly slowed his trotting pace to a quick walk.

"I've never seen such things but..." Kyle paused as Kit made herself comfortable in his grasp. He continued, "...rumors have been scatting about that these things were seen in some cave south of here."

Kyle began to smile wide as he envisioned himself as a knight saving the sweet fair maiden from the clutches of the evil priest ready to sacrifice her.

"Don't worry Kit, Maal is teaching me to fight. You're in safe hands"

"Could you slow down a little?" Kit asked. Thinking to herself that Kyle would die of exhaustion at the pace he was maintaining, and long before they reached Ashe.

"I am not sure what the violence was all about on the Ridge, some Dark looking Archers with their pet beasts. Big dog-sized rat things with huge maws and viscous claws, I shudder to think what they may have done to the people before we got there. As to why they are here?" she paused with a smirk. "You would probably know more than I Kyle, have you ever heard of such things?"

As Kyle slowed, Kit nuzzled her head into the crook of his neck, she was becoming a bit light-headed.

"I'm just glad I was here to help. You saved me from Rawling and I'll save you from...walking!"

Kyle had a concerned look on his face and did his best to move smoothly through the clearing and chaotic streets.

After getting bumped a few times he began to shout, "Out of the way! I've got a wounded girl here! Just let me get by!"

to Kit's surprise it actually worked. Kyle kept up his alarm and people brushed aside.

After getting to the Wolfsong Kyle quieted down and said to Kit, "I've always wanted to do that...y'know, shout and have people move out of the way. So what happened up on the ridge? I was on my way to help put out the burning houses and then I saw you...hurt. Are you feeling okay? I'm not bouncing you around to much am I? If I am then I'll slow down."

Kyle was sorry that Kit was hurt but he was happy to be carrying her. "Maybe this would be a good time to try to give her the hair piece again? No...probably not", he thought.

As Kyle, strong from working alongside his father at their trade, scooped up the slight Kit in his arms, she wrapped her arms around his neck and held on.

"I would have objected, but it hurts badly." She said, close to his left ear as now he held her aloft.

"But Ashe is clear across town, let's take it slow. You should conserve your strength and I my nerve, any jostling makes the tip scrape the bone."

As Kyle started towards Ashe's Place she added. "Thank you so much Kyle, I am so glad you happened along my path."

"Great blazes!! You're hurt! We gotta get you something for that wound! Can you walk? well probably not very good. Here, let me carry you! There's no time to lose!"

Kyle put down the lantern and hunched down to pick Kit up by her knees and shoulders.
