@Coren

“It is always consolatory to know that young Darkcloaks are willing to offer their lives for the better of this world,” he replied to Coren. “Most would choose to die ignominiously than serve.” He heaved a long sigh then spoke again, “Remember, young one. Being a Darkcloak is not a job, but rather a vocation.”

“And refrain from calling your seniors lord. We are, afterall, brothers here,” he followed. With those last words he imprinted on Coren’s mind, the old Darkcloak stood and left the room.

The other two Darkcloaks remained seated and focused at the bard. The male Darkcloak pulled a sheet of paper from his pocket. He signaled the other one to start the mission briefing while scanning the paper.


“I’m pretty sure being in the brotherhood for a while made you familiar with the variety of jobs that we receive and their outcomes,” the female Darkcloak remarked. “Are you aware of these ‘somebody who's been rumored to have an agenda of bringing down the tyrant king’ cases?”


@ADELFLÆD

Felicia, although with a slight caution in her mind, enjoyed the scenery along the way. Her eyes sparkled everytime when something caught her interest. Be it animals, flower or plants - herbs mostly. She smiled when familiar scents tinged her nose. After all, she is very fond of gardening and medicinal plants are here forte. Brand, however, was uneasy. The fighter spat and cussed that if it was written in paper, the words could consume a page or two. Most of the time he wasn’t paying attention to what the stranger was saying. He was observing the surrounding, trying to find traps and potential danger along the way while cursing. It was too late when he realized that the two had slipped from his watch and was already entering the hut. He rushed to reach them but the door had already closed.


“Open this damn f***ing’ door!” Brand banged the door hard in quick intervals. “If you don’t open this, I’ll force my way inside! Even if means bringing this hut down!”

“Stop it!” a faint female voice rose audible from the loud banging. He realized that it was Felicia’s voice and stopped instantly. He pressed his ear against the door hoping to hear her voice much more clearly. “Is that you priestess? Are you OK? Is she hurting you? Answer me!”

“I’m fine, Brand,” the priestess replied.

“Let me in,” the fighter insisted, “I don’t trust her. She might do something bad to you!”

“You can’t!” Felicia reasoned, “I’m going to change my clothes, just stay outside.”

“Damn!” Brand cursed again. He turned and walked away from the door still feeling uneasy.

He was just a few paces away from the hut when suddenly he rushed back and kicked the door strong. “Hey blind girl! If you do something bad with my priestess, I swear you gonna regret it!”, he threatened. Then he walked away again, still pissed and cursing.

Felicia, stunned by her friend’s behavior, closed her eyes and released a deep sigh. Brand was impulsive, the priestess had known that for a long time. In the temple, she’d always think it was tolerable. But now that they were travelling alone together, she thought she should be able to handle her friend’s flakiness. Although, at the back of her mind, she accounted that she could not blame Brand, for their agenda is a fragile and dangerous one. The priestess shoved off the thought. She returned to her courteous, conservative, composure. She stood straight with hands clasped, then turned to the blind girl.

“Forgive him stranger, it was our first time to venture outside by ourselves so he is nervous,” she said calmly, followed by a quick bow.

She went for the dress on the table. Carefully, Felicia unfolded it and checked if it fits her. It seemed that it was a bit large for her which she thought was better. She looked around to find a covered place where she can hide and dress. The priestess is not comfortable undressing where other people could see. She stammered when she remembered that the stranger was blind. Still she wanted to make sure of it, as her instinct told her. With that in mind, Felicia closed in to the blind girl, in a distance and angle which she could tell if she was blind or not. She focused her eyes on the stranger’s and after a few moments of observing, she was indeed convinced. She then proceeded in removing her clothes and putting on the new ones, standing with her back from the stranger. After that, she went back to the table and picked up the jar then headed to the fireplace. She set her wet clothes by the fire then sat besides the blind girl.


“My name is Felicia,” the priestess replied with a smile while opening the jar, “I’m a priestess of Amera. We came from the southern temple.”

She sniffed the aroma that was released from the jar and appreciated the nice-smelling ointment which her sensitive nose approved to be well-made.

“How about you?” Felicia asked, “Isn’t it dangerous for a blind girl to be living around in this forest?”

Jin's expression doesn't change, could he have misjudged the situation? And could he use his powers to make a drink colder? Questions, questions.

"Quite right but the situation could not be helped. Stay passive long enough and you might as well be taking part in whatever wrong you see. Let's step in then, what's your poison?"

"On the contrary, it is that I am here because it is safe. The forest does not lie, the forest does not cheat and, most of all, the forest does not hate." She laddled some water into the kettle and pushed it over the fire.
"Adelflæd was what my parents saw fit to call me. Cannot say if they would be delighted, although..." she brushed away the long flowing hair so her thin fingers could trace her triangle face from the shallow brows over the pronounced cheekbones and narrow lips to the small chin. "...it feels like they could have been right. Even mother could not have been displeased with a face like this." her voice quivered a bit.

She took a few pieces of cloth and put them in the boiling water. "It can be hard sometimes. Living alone." Using a pair of sticks she stirred the kettle and fished out a piece of cloth. "No one will hit you for messing up." She shook it to cool it off and started wiping down Felicia's arm. "But also no one to pick you up if you fall." After carefully going over the whole arm, she put the piece of cloth to a pile of others like it and picked out a new one.
"I hardly had a chance to choose differently though." Her hands worked deftly over the skin of the priestess, methodically cleaning her other arm as well. "Your skin is very soft." She could feel her heartbeat on her fingertips. It was rather fast. "But your hands are not. Dirt under the fingernails simply will not do." With a determined motion she took hold of her palm with her thumb in the middle. Ignoring the suprised yelp she scraped under the nails to clean them thoroughly. "There, that's good." She put the piece of cloth into the pile and fished out the other two pieces.

"Here, for the legs." After handing over the clouts she poured the leftover water from the kettle to a small bowl and filled it with fresh. She stood up and headed over to the table. She poured out a tiny handful of leaves from a small jar to her palm and put them into a pot. Heading back over with the pot and two cups she sat down next to the priestess again.
"It has been five months since then. Since I have been alone." Having stirred the kettle a bit she continued. "There is a small hamlet near. The villagers used to trade meat and fish for medicine." She pushed the kettle out of the fire and poured the hot water over the leaves in the pot. "But that is not why you are here. Coming from the temple, all across the grasslands, you must be on your way to Chesterfield."

Pouring the tea from the pot into the two cups she put the other one down in front of Felicia, who was done with cleaning her wounds. "Blueberry tea, for when you're done." She blew on her cup to cool it down a bit and took a sip, holding the cup with both hands. "I can not stay here. Would you consider taking me along with you? I do not have money but you can take as much of the herbs and medicines in here as you can carry. There is some dried meat and fish too."
"Oh, and of course, if you need me to bonk that rash buffoon on the head, I can do that for you too." She laughed.

- Heard? I've been in the courts of few who conspired to uprise, as part of the entertainment for the feasts. As I've sure you seen my reports these conspirators were disposed off by Bosmorth troops before they even made a move to spark a rebellion. At least they paid in advance - Coren said. - I did heard a rumor or few about someone with a little bit more competence. - Coren said whilst stroking his forked beard.

"My poison? That's not an easy question, mate. Where do I begin? I mean, is it for one person or a group? Rich or poor? Discrete or for making a statement? The possibilities are... oh, you meant my drink, didn't you?" The hooded person smirks, "sorry, mate, just a bit of black humor right there, heh. Ale is fine."

Before they walk in, he lowers his hood. Most of his body is still hidden behind the folds of his cloak, but at least his face is visible now. And it looks like someone worked on it very long with a whetstone. Sharp chin, sharp nose, short and sharp black hair and razor eyes that appear to be staring both into you and at everything else at once.

A few rounds later

"..And then I froze his puddle of pee and he slipped!" Laughter ensues, another round arrives. Another bottom reached.
"Now then, how come you interfered? You wouldn't happen to be our friendly neighbourhood paladin in disguise?"

"Hah, paladin! Good one, mate. Nah, rescuing damsels in distress ain't my style, no matter how prettily they prance around their enemies." He takes a big swing from his mug, "believe or not, but I wasn't just passing by. First tell me though, how serious were about that whole staying passive is the same as taking part in the wrong thing you were talking about earlier?"

There it was. Jin knew the thread would start unravelling from there but not where it would lead.

"That would depend on the gravity of the situation and the ability to change it. But unless change is possible, we may as well accept the reality of the situation. Wouldn't you think so?"

Fink raised an eyebrow at the question.

"Really? I thought you martial types are all 'bout improving yeselves and pushing past your limits and whatnot. Don't think that sits well with accepting the reality. Or do you really think freezing people's piss with your mind is real for everyone, mate?"

"Every moment can serve as a new beginning but not all are ripe with potential. I cannot change the world by myself, at best I can be the vessel for change. If the time is right and the world ready for it of course."

Jin sips the rest of the cup.

"One last round then?"

@Coren

“So you’re one of those few who’s been sent for jobs like this. Good thing!” the female Darkcloak remarked.

“I might also add, in case you didn’t know, that most of them were fake,” she revealed. “The tyrant king poses to be very keen in disposing his enemies. Very few had really attempted and they have declined in number.”

“In the last three years there were zero attempts according to our intel,” the male Darkcloak added.

“But,” the female cut in, “lately, we have received reports that there is another attempt brewing. And it is from a very reliable source.”

She paused for a moment. Her eyes were fierce, implying that the gravity of her thoughts is grave.  “Apparently,” she finally spoke, “further details about this matter were unclear. We do not know who they are or where they are. The only thing that we know is that the attempt has a huge potential to succeed.”

She then looked at Coren and continued, “Your mission is to find these usurpers and report their status to the brotherhood.”

“Our clients haven’t decided if they want them dead,” the male Darkcloak said. “For now what they want are details, in-depth details. You will be updated from time to time.”

“Elder brother trusted your abilities. Make sure you won't fail us,” she threatened.

The male Darkcloak handed the sheet of paper to Coren. Written on it were mostly vague words, numbers and symbols that do not make sense. Puzzles, idioms and incomprehensible drawings filled the paper. But Coren knew what they meant.


“Memorize then disintegrate,” he commanded to the bard.


The two Darkcloak stood up.

"We’ve been here for too long, disperse!” said the female Darkcloak.

Both of them headed for the door. Before exiting, the female Darkcloak gave Coren one last look - a cold yet piercing gaze.
