Exodus 32

[21:51] Shadowcaller: Okay, Aegnor is in his tent then?
[21:51] Shadowcaller: Cessie is not there for reasons untold
[21:53] Murska: yeah
[21:54] Shadowcaller: Is he sleeping?
[21:54] Murska: let's say he is, in fact.
[21:57] Shadowcaller: He slowly becomes aware that a voice is calling his name, dragging him from the dream world (whatever he dreamt of there)
[21:58] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor?"
[21:59] Shadowcaller: His sleepy mind can only vaguly recall the voice as Michicora's
[21:59] Murska: 'Unh…' He slowly wakes up.
[22:00] Shadowcaller: "Why are we still here?"
[22:01] Shadowcaller: She puts it quite bluntly before he have time to fully awake
[22:02] Murska: '…what?'
[22:03] Shadowcaller: "Why are we still here? With the village?"
[22:05] Murska: He sits up. 'Because we haven't left?'
[22:05] Shadowcaller: "They are safe here, we should move on."
[22:06] Murska: 'Where exactly? And how can they be safe when we haven't even found them a home yet?'
[22:07] Shadowcaller: "This is the best home we can find for them in a desert."
[22:07] Shadowcaller: He can see her more clearly now, she is resting her hands on her huge bastard sword
[22:08] Murska: 'You do know you're free to come or go as you please.'
[22:09] Shadowcaller: "…I won't leave Hope and she feel responsible for them."
[22:10] Murska: 'So there you have your answer.'
[22:10] Shadowcaller: "No, thats not a answer, you are the one in charge, you can get us out of here."
[22:11] Murska: 'So you're telling me to order Hope to leave her responsibilities?'
[22:13] Shadowcaller: "No, I'm telling you to leave as soon as we aren't needed here anymore."
[22:15] Murska: 'Of course. As long as you leave deciding when we aren't needed to me.'
[22:16] Shadowcaller: "How long then?"
[22:17] Murska: 'We'll see.'
[22:18] Shadowcaller: "Not good enough, I need something clear, how do we even know when they found a home?"
[22:20] Murska: 'Look, I can't give you a set date when we know nothing of what'll happen tomorrow, let alone in a few weeks.'
[22:21] Shadowcaller: "Thats not what I asked for, I want to know how you know when we are done here."
[22:22] Murska: 'With my superb deductive abilities?'
[22:23] Shadowcaller: "There must be a numbers of terms needed to be fullfilled… right?"
[22:24] Murska: 'Either that or just say 'when the time feels right.''
[22:24] Shadowcaller: "I need facts, not word twisting."
[22:26] Murska: 'Your loss.'
[22:28] Shadowcaller: "Have a plan?"
[22:28] Shadowcaller: "Or j
[22:28] Shadowcaller: (ignore the last part.)
[22:28] Murska: 'What's wrong with the good old 'wing it'?'
[22:30] Shadowcaller: "We can't stay."
[22:31] Murska: He sighs. 'No, we can't. Please, if I'm the leader then you'll need to trust me. If I'm not, then why are you talking to me about this anyway?'
[22:32] Shadowcaller: "I would leave if it weren't for her."
[22:35] Murska: 'Well rest assured, I'm not planning on staying.'
[22:36] Shadowcaller: "Aren't you?"
[22:36] Shadowcaller: "Your people…"
[22:37] Murska: He sighs. 'No.'
[22:38] Shadowcaller: "Then where are you going?"
[22:39] Murska: 'Wherever I end up.'
[22:39] Shadowcaller: "Thats reason enough to leave them?"
[22:44] Murska: He looks at her for a moment. 'Why not? I'll visit them again some day, if I happen to get the chance.'
[22:46] Shadowcaller: She glares back, her eyes lighting up a bit "I left my people to serve my god, you don't even seems to know why you will leave yours."
[22:47] Murska: 'Don't.'
[22:50] Shadowcaller: "Afraid of conflict? We ended here last time to."
[22:52] Murska: 'Yes, oh great warrior, I'm afraid of you. Now can you drop it?'
[22:55] Shadowcaller: "I just like to know why."
[22:58] Murska: 'Why do you instantly assume that if I meet elves, they're 'my people'? Are all humans yours?'
[23:00] Shadowcaller: "Almost no elves left."
[23:00] Shadowcaller: "What remains…"
[23:00] Shadowcaller: (must stick together.)
[23:01] Murska: 'You've managed to convince me! We'll stay here then.'
[23:02] Shadowcaller: "No."
[23:03] Murska: 'Great call.'
[23:04] Shadowcaller: "You are not answering my question."
[23:04] Murska: 'Yes.'
[23:12] Shadowcaller: Michicora just stares at Aegnor for a moment
[23:16] Shadowcaller: "I don't get what they see in you." She replies and turns away, slowly making her way outside
[23:25] Murska: (So, what next?)
[23:26] Shadowcaller: (Hmm… anything you can come up with? >.>)
[23:26] Murska: (how are you feeling, Happy?)
[23:27] Happy: bit of a headache
[23:27] Murska: aww
[23:27] Shadowcaller: (:S)
[23:29] Murska: (Cuz it's much moar awesome if all three participate »)
[23:30] Murska: (and even more if you two do and I don't have to)
[23:30] Shadowcaller: Indeed >.>
[23:30] Murska: (see? He agrees=)
[23:30] Shadowcaller: Bah, what are you busy with?
[23:31] Murska: (starcraft session started 1,5 hours ago)
[23:31] Shadowcaller: (Oh, right.)
[23:37] Shadowcaller: ,
[23:37] Murska: (v.v no Happy participation?)
[23:38] Murska: (I can converse, a bit slowly.)
[23:38] Happy: um… where do you want me? and which of me do you want?
[23:38] Happy: i can only manage one character, I think
[23:39] Murska: (I don't want you to RP if you don't feel like it, though.)
[23:39] Happy: (as long as I don't have to GM)
[23:40] Shadowcaller: (Its short conversations really.)
[23:41] Murska: (someone start it!)
[23:41] Murska: (Michicora goes to complain to Hope? :P)
[23:42] Shadowcaller: (Hehe, I was thinking the same thing, thought she tries to hold in most of the time, she might actually tell Hope.)
[23:43] Shadowcaller: (WHere would Hope be?)
[23:43] Happy: With Naib, checking on his arm.
[23:44] Shadowcaller: (Right…)
[23:44] Happy: (I will force Murska to participate! muahaha!)
[23:45] Shadowcaller: "Is he better?" Michicoras voice suddenly come from behind
[23:46] Happy: (is he?)
[23:47] Shadowcaller: (I don't know, I mostly let the player decide that.)
[23:47] Happy: (*pokes Murska*)
[23:47] Murska: (he is)
[23:47] Happy: (completely?)
[23:50] Happy: "The arm is healed," Hope says. "How are you, Michicora?"
[23:50] Shadowcaller: "…frustrated."
[23:51] Shadowcaller: She sits down beside Hope
[23:52] Happy: Hope looks at her with concern. "What happened?"
[23:53] Shadowcaller: She waves her hand at the camp around them "This happend."
[23:53] Happy: "I don't understand."
[23:54] Shadowcaller: "I'm feeling trapped here."
[23:55] Happy: "Do you need to go?"
[23:55] Shadowcaller: "No, I can't…"
[23:56] Shadowcaller: "Otherwise I would have left already."
[23:57] Happy: "I don't understand," Hope says again.
[23:59] Shadowcaller: "I… I just don't like being here."
[00:00] Shadowcaller: "I'm used to more freedom, this place, this people, they are a cage."
[00:04] Happy: "Butyou can't go?"
[00:06] Murska: (So, is Naib somewhere near?)
[00:07] Shadowcaller: Michicora sigh "Its complicated." She looks at Hope "Just as I said."
[00:07] Shadowcaller: (He is.)
[00:08] Murska: 'Well, I know the feeling. But as long as we're at least moving…'
[00:09] Shadowcaller: "Into a desert, with a group of refugees…"
[00:11] Happy: "If anything happened to them now, after everything we've been through… I'm not sure I could live with myself."
[00:12] Shadowcaller: "It would not be your fault Hope, don't say that."
[00:14] Happy: In a low voice. "I wish Promise were here."
[00:15] Shadowcaller: "Promise…" Michicora looks into the distance
[00:17] Happy: (Did she ever meet him?)
[00:17] Shadowcaller: (Nope.)
[00:18] Shadowcaller: "What made him so special," Michicora suddenly asks, as to fill the uncomfortable silence between the three of you
[00:19] Happy: Hope crumbles into silent tears.
[00:21] Shadowcaller: Michicora puts a arm on Hopes shoulder, Naib can notice how her hand shakes a bit as she dose so.
[00:21] Happy: (it was the past tense that did it. v.v)
[00:22] Shadowcaller: (Well, too Michicora he is past tense since she never met him.)
[00:22] Shadowcaller: *to
[00:24] Happy: "He's not coming back, is he?" *very low voice*
[00:24] Shadowcaller: Michicora looks confused, not really sure what to say.
[00:27] Murska: 'Of course he is.'
[00:27] Shadowcaller: Michicora seems lost in the conversation, this is not her area of expertise
[00:28] Happy: "I know that I'm going to have to accept it at some point. But I'm not ready to do that yet."
[00:31] Shadowcaller: "I don't know anything about it…" Michicora mutters, almost unhearable to Hope and Naib
[00:33] Happy: Hope blinks rapidly and brushes her tears away.
[00:34] Murska: 'Can't you go looking for him?'
[00:36] Happy: "Not until the people here are safe."
[00:37] Shadowcaller: Michicora don't seems to be able to come up with anything to say
[00:37] Murska: 'Well, I'm sure he can wait that much longer.'
[00:37] Happy: She forces a smile. "Of couse."
[00:39] Shadowcaller: She makes an almost unhearable sigh and looks down the ground
[00:43] Shadowcaller: Its not until the conversation have died down a bit she speaks again "Who w-is he?"
[00:45] Happy: "My mate. The chosen one of Zubera." She looks at Michicora. "That's why I can't let you harm her."
[00:47] Shadowcaller: "I won't… the misson is over.. has been over since the gate opened.."
[00:54] Happy: "He's a warrior. Stronger than me, and - " her voice breaks off.
[00:54] Happy: "I can't."
[00:55] Shadowcaller: "…okay." Is all she manage to say in response
[00:57] Happy: "We'll find a place for the villagers soon. someplace where no one can make slaves of them."
[01:01] Shadowcaller: "Yes." She looks ashamed for some reason but is trying to hide it (not sure how high Hope's and Naib's social skills are.)
[01:05] Happy: "What's wrong?"
[01:06] Shadowcaller: "Nothing, I'm just so stupid.."
[01:07] Happy: "You aren't!" she says in a fierce voice. "Why would you say that?"
[01:09] Shadowcaller: "Bu- but, I made you cry."
[01:10] Happy: Hope laughs. "Oh, Michi… I cry every day."
[01:11] Shadowcaller: "I never noticed it, I don't see those things…"
[01:15] Shadowcaller: "I'm sorry Hope, I'm no good at this."
[01:16] Happy: "I try to wait until I'm alone." Her voice a little quieter now.
[01:18] Shadowcaller: Michicora goes quiet again, as she see emotions are involved. She still looks very unsure of herself in this very social situation
[01:21] Happy: "I'm sorry you feel trapped. Is there anything I can do?"
[01:22] Shadowcaller: "No, I already tried. It's okay Hope, just ignore all the stupid things I say."
[01:30] Murska: (…)
[01:33] Shadowcaller: .
[01:38] Shadowcaller: ,,
[01:39] Happy: sorry, i got nothing
[01:40] Shadowcaller: (We can end there anyway, hope you got energy for the funeral later on.)
