Kyou 25

[19:50] Wolfbane: Promise wakes up?
[19:52] Happy: Hope is snuggled up with him spoon style, her back against his chest, and still asleep.
[19:53] Wolfbane: Promise smiles and stays there, watching her sleep, until she wakes up.
[19:55] Happy: Eventually she does, mumbling "Good morning" but not wanting to move.
[19:57] Shadowcaller: (Brb.)
[19:57] Wolfbane: Promise puts an arm around her and gives her a gentle squeeze. "Morning."
[19:57] Shadowcaller: (I willl log out for a second…)
[19:59] * Shadowcaller has left the conversation.
[20:00] Happy: "This is my favourite thing," she says, snuggling closer.
[20:01] Wolfbane: He nuzzles her. "Mine too."
[20:03] *
moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes (Shadowcaller) has joined the conversation.
[20:04] Happy: "Even back in the airship, before I knew how I felt, I knew I loved waking up with you."
[20:04] * Shadowcaller has left the conversation.
[20:05] *
moc.liamtoh|norewes#moc.liamtoh|norewes (Shadowcaller) has joined the conversation.
[20:05] Happy: *duct tapes SC to chat*
[20:06] Wolfbane: "And I liked it. It made me feel like I belonged."
[20:08] Happy: "Maybe when we find a safe place for the villagers, we can settle with them for a while."
[20:12] Wolfbane: "That would be nice someday."
[20:17] Shadowcaller: (>.>)

[20:24] Happy: Hope sits up and stretches. "I guess we have to get moving."
[20:30] Wolfbane: Promise also stands. "We should also get the scroll to Dal too before we forget."
[20:31] Happy: Hope quickly washes and dresses and grabs a cold breakfast, and is soon ready to go.
[20:34] Wolfbane: Promise does the same and grabs the pouch with the scroll. "Ready"
[20:37] Happy: "Let's see if Cessie is up. I think she'll want to be there when he opens it."
[20:38] Wolfbane: Promise nods in agreement.
[20:39] Happy: They knock on Cessie's door.
[20:40] Shadowcaller: (Cessie and Aegnors door really.)
[20:41] Shadowcaller: (Not sure they got real doors, I think they only got covers.)
[20:42] Happy: (Well, knocking on the frame of the house then. Or just calling out 'hey, we're here')
[20:42] Shadowcaller: (I suppose Aegnor would be there >.>)
[20:43] Happy: (Do you want me to RP him?)
[20:43] Wolfbane: (He could be doing his 3 hour meditation thing)
[20:43] Shadowcaller: (Now? In the morning?)
[20:43] Wolfbane: (Near the end?)
[20:43] Shadowcaller: (Sure, you could RP him.)
[20:45] Shadowcaller: "Let me just get dressed…"
[20:45] Happy: Aegnor tells them that Cessie will be ready in a few minutes. So they wait outside for her.
[20:46] Shadowcaller: SHe soon emerges, fixing her hair in the meantime
[20:47] Shadowcaller: "Good Morning…"
[20:48] Happy: "Good morning to you. We just wanted to take the scroll to Dal."
[20:48] Wolfbane: "We thought that you may want to be there."

[20:49] Shadowcaller: "Right, of course, Aegnor are you coming?"

[20:53] Happy: Aegnor doesn't answer. You look over and see that he's blanking.
[20:54] Shadowcaller: "Hello…?"
[20:54] Shadowcaller: "I hate when he do that."
[20:55] Shadowcaller: "I guess we are going without him then, this was not exactly his attitude last night.."
[20:56] Happy: "He probably figures you can handle a boy wizard with a bad ankle without his protection," Hope says, smiling.
[20:57] Shadowcaller: "I want him there, I don't need his protection."
[20:58] Shadowcaller: "…anyway, we should go."
[20:58] Shadowcaller: "I think I had enough sleep last night."
[20:58] Happy: They go to Dal's house. He's already up and hopping around on his good leg.
[20:59] Shadowcaller: *I think I didn't ahve enough sleep last night
[20:59] Happy: "I probably didn't get as much sleep as I should have," HOpe says, smiling at Promise.
[21:01] Wolfbane: Promise smiles back. "I don't think any of us did."
[21:02] Shadowcaller: "Right… how… ehrm, lets go and find Dal shall we?"
[21:02] Happy: "Did you learn anything from the book?"
[21:03] Shadowcaller: "I didn't really… read it last night."
[21:03] Wolfbane: Promise smiles. "I think we understand."
[21:03] Shadowcaller: "Understnad what?"
[21:04] Shadowcaller: "I just didn't read it, I could just not pick a spell I wanted, too many too choose from."
[21:05] Wolfbane: Promise sees Dal. "Morning. Feeling better?"
[21:06] Happy: "Yup! I feel great. Can I start wizard training today?"
[21:06] Happy: (he's speaking in Wolfen, and Hope is translating)
[21:07] Wolfbane: "I think so. We went to the place in your dream and while it wasn't the Dawn Wolf's tomb, we did find something else." He takes out the scroll.
[21:08] Happy: "It wasn't? But I saw her. All golden flames, right?"
[21:08] Shadowcaller: "Dawn wolf?"
[21:09] Happy: "The Dawn Wolf was married to Fenris Wolf," Dal says.
[21:10] Wolfbane: "It had been a dream sent to you buy a spirit. And since you could come, he gave us the scroll to give to you."
[21:11] Shadowcaller: "Anyone mind explain to me what Dawn wolf and Fenris is?"
[21:12] Wolfbane: "The simpliest way to put it is that they are the first two Wolfen."
[21:13] Shadowcaller: "Where did they come from? Just born from the air?"
[21:14] Happy: "The Dawn Wolf was the sky, and Fenris was the earth. And they took Wolfen forms," Dal says.
[21:14] Wolfbane: Promise nods.
[21:15] Shadowcaller: "Hmm reminds me of another story, did they take these forms beacuse they loved each other?"
[21:18] Wolfbane: "Yes, does it matter?"
[21:19] Shadowcaller: "Just trying to see where t might have orginated from… please Dal, don't let us intereupt you, open the scroll."
[21:19] Wolfbane: Promise hands him the scroll.
[21:20] Happy: "If it wasn't the Dawn Wolf's tomb, then whose was it?"
[21:20] Wolfbane: "It was an elf wizard's. He sent you the dream hoping that you would follow it."
[21:21] Happy: "Then why did I see a wolf?"
[21:21] Happy: Dal takes the scroll case and examines it.
[21:21] Wolfbane: (I can't remember if we were told)
[21:21] Wolfbane: (brb )
[21:22] Happy: (You weren't. Feel free to speculate ^.^)
[21:22] Happy: (also brb food)
[21:29] Wolfbane: (back)
[21:31] Wolfbane: Promise thinks. "I don't know. Maybe we'll find out soon."

[21:36] Shadowcaller: "Just be careful about the scroll Dal, its enchanted."
[21:38] Happy: Dal opens the case, and Cessie can feel the enchantment disappear.
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "Did anything happen Dal?"
[21:39] Happy: "I don't think so."
[21:39] Shadowcaller: "What's in the scroll then?"
[21:40] Happy: Dal pulls out several parchment scrolls, which look as fresh and unspoiled as if they'd just been made.
[21:40] Happy: (which might be a hint as to what the enchantment was…)
[21:41] Shadowcaller: (Indeed.)
[21:42] Shadowcaller: "Go head, open them Dal."
[21:46] Happy: Dal opens them. The first one is a map, with lines and markings on it. He gives it a puzzled look, and then looks at the others, which are just covered with text. "I don't know what these are."
[21:47] Shadowcaller: "May I…?" Cessie holds her hand over one of the scrolls with text
[21:47] Happy: Dal hands it over.
[21:48] Shadowcaller: She looks over it, trying to see what text its written in
[21:48] Happy: The writing is in elvish, which Cessie recognizes even if she can't read it, with arcane symbols that she does recognize.
[21:49] Happy: The map shows the Hyrillian empire with many arcane notations on it, along with what you think might be the location of the Gate and various Ley Lines that intersect there.
[21:50] Shadowcaller: "Hmm… leylines, not my families strong side."
[21:50] Wolfbane: brb
[21:50] Shadowcaller: *familys
[21:51] Happy: "What are Leylines?" Dal asks.
[21:51] Shadowcaller: "Magical path ways sort of, like undercurrents in a ocean."
[21:52] Shadowcaller: Cessie don't appear very good at speaking with children
[21:53] Shadowcaller: "It builds up…" She is looking elsehwere as she speaks to him "..and creates powerful sources of magic."
[21:55] Shadowcaller: *elsewhere
[21:56] Happy: Dal listens closely, trying to make sense of it. "So… this map shows where magic is the strongest?"
[21:58] Wolfbane: back
[21:58] Shadowcaller: "Well, basically, yes."
[22:00] Shadowcaller: "Can I take a look at the other scrolls too?"
[22:05] Happy: "Yes." The other scrolls are just text, but they remind Cessie of arcane textbooks.
[22:06] Happy: The Elf ghost was obviously a very studious wizard
[22:08] Shadowcaller: "Hmm… I guess Aegnor can read these."
[22:08] Happy: "I can read them," Dal says. "I just can't understand them."
[22:09] Shadowcaller: "What do they say?"
[22:10] Happy: He reads out a few lines, and tries to translate it into Wolfen, which Hope then tries to translate back. Which is about as successful as using several iterations of Google translate on a physics text book
[22:11] Happy: It's too advanced for either Dal or Hope to understand.
[22:11] Wolfbane: Can Promise understand the Wolfen?
[22:11] Happy: Yes, but it's still technical arcane jargon
[22:12] Happy: "Will Seren understand it?" Dal asks. "Is he going to start teaching me soon?"
[22:15] Shadowcaller: "I think he is isn't her?"
[22:15] Shadowcaller: *he
[22:16] Happy: "We can go find out," Hope says. "He's had a day to settle in now."
[22:16] Shadowcaller: "I doubt he will enjoy it…"
[22:17] Wolfbane: "It is better than the alternitive."
[22:20] Shadowcaller: "Yes, but I still don't think he will like it here."
[22:21] Happy: Dal leads them to the hut that Seren has been assigned, and knocks on the door.
[22:27] Shadowcaller: Cessie waits for someone to answer
[22:27] Happy: Seren answers the door. He doesn't seem to be under guard any more.
[22:28] Shadowcaller: /How are things working out?/
[22:29] Happy: /I'm alive. That's something./
[22:30] Shadowcaller: /How do you comminucate around here anyway?/
[22:31] Happy: /I speak Kyou Common./
[22:32] Shadowcaller: /Right… I keep forgetting they know that…/
[22:33] Happy: /Please, come in. Enjoy my hospitality!/ He gestures to invite the party inside. He looks like he hasn't had much sleep.
[22:33] Shadowcaller: /Right…/
[22:34] Shadowcaller: She enters trying not to look directly at him
[22:35] Happy: Dal hops right in, seemingly not at all frightened of the man who tried to capture him a few days ago.
[22:36] Happy: Hope enters, not really having anything to say, especially since so much of the conversation is mental.
[22:36] Happy: /So, this is my student? I suppose I owe him my life. Unless you're the one who prompted him to make that suggestion./
[22:37] Wolfbane: Promise follows, keeping an eye on Dal.
[22:37] Shadowcaller: /He wanted a teacher, and I don't know if I can stay here long enough to take care of him./
[22:38] Happy: /I haven't tried to teach anyone before, let alone an elf./ He tries to catch himself before his low opinion of elf intelligence slips into his tone, but Cessie notices it.
[22:40] Shadowcaller: /I can't belive you actually think elves are *less* intelligent then us, I mean, they live much, much longer./
[22:45] Happy: He sighs, and says something in Kyou, which obviously means 'Sit down and pay attention', since that's what Dal does. And he starts to give a lecture.
[22:46] Happy: /The introduction to the arcane arts. I'm sure you remember it from university./
[22:46] Shadowcaller: "This is going to be intresting…"
[22:46] Shadowcaller: (He knows i went to a university?)
[22:47] Happy: (He assumes it)
[22:47] Happy: (You act like a university trained wizard)
[22:47] Shadowcaller: (Well, since I'm from another country… oh well.)
[22:48] Shadowcaller: /Yes, thought I had a lot more books, and teachers, how exactly did you learn magic?/
[22:49] Happy: /University, of course./
[22:50] Shadowcaller: /You finished it?/ (most unlikely that he did since he is apperently under Cessies level of magic.)
[22:51] Happy: /No. I ran out of money./
[22:53] Shadowcaller: /And you turned to slavery… how fitting, well, teach him all you can. Its the only way right now…/
[22:55] Shadowcaller: /You have been here one day now, what do you think of this place?/
[22:58] Shadowcaller: (…okay.)
[22:58] Happy: /It's so primitive./

[23:03] Shadowcaller: /Well, while I can agree, its what they have sadly./
[23:05] Happy: /Does anyone ever leave the village?/
[23:06] Shadowcaller: /I doubt it, why would they? People of your kind would take them as slaves the very moment they step outside Yokai./
[23:09] Happy: /I just mean…/ He sighs. /I had money on me when I was captured. I thought maybe someone could use it to buy a couple of arcane texts for the boy./
[23:11] Shadowcaller: /There are magical shops in Kyou?/ Cessie asks a bit suprised
[23:16] Happy: /Not places that sell magic. But books about magic can be found./
[23:17] Shadowcaller: /I see, I guess some of us could get there and buy something for him./
[23:19] Happy: Promise and Hope are sitting together quietly, not really able to understand the magic lessons and Hope puts her hand on Promise's paw and leans against him.
[23:20] Happy: /Are they…. No. I don't want to know./
[23:21] Happy: /There's a bookshop on Cherry Blossom Street that has good prices./
[23:21] Wolfbane: Promise squeezes her hand and gently leans against her in response. (They are leaning against each other now)
[23:22] Happy: "We should probably get going soon," Hope whispers to him.
[23:23] Shadowcaller: /Okay, I guess I can go there…/
[23:24] Shadowcaller: /What exaclty did you carry when I captured you?/
[23:25] Wolfbane: "Probably." He nuzzles her. "But I think we still have a few minutes."

[23:34] Happy: /The ring… that's what made the shield. The wand is mostly sleep spells. Some oil of haste…/
[23:35] Shadowcaller: /Intresting, well I will try to get those books for you then./
[23:36] Wolfbane: (Has he seen the scrolls?)
[23:36] Shadowcaller: (He did right?)
[23:36] Happy: (You haven't shown Seren the scrolls yet)
[23:36] Wolfbane: (Cessie has them)
[23:36] Shadowcaller: (Well, then I do that then.)
[23:37] Happy: He sighs again. /I guess I have to learn elven/
[23:38] Shadowcaller: /At least its a proff of their intelligence…/
[23:38] Shadowcaller: *proof
[23:39] Happy: /Putting this together…. this must have been someone's life work./
[23:42] Shadowcaller: /I guessed it was…/
[23:42] Shadowcaller: "Well… we might want to go back to Kyou again, for a short while."
[23:43] Happy: "After we get back from the Spirit Realm then?" Hope says.
[23:44] Wolfbane: Promise sighs. "That means I will have to hide again."
[23:45] Wolfbane: "And besides, we still have unfinished business there, so I guess we have to."
[23:45] Happy: /You are going to the spirit realm?/ O.O
[23:47] Shadowcaller: /Yes, I realize its risky, but I have to./
[23:47] Happy: /Why?/
[23:49] Shadowcaller: /You would not understand, its not that you know anything about the spirit realm anyway./
[23:52] Happy: /Do you?/
[23:52] Shadowcaller: /No, not much, except its supposed to be huge and have a lot of different types of areas./
[23:53] Happy:
[23:54] Happy: /Goodbye then. I hope you survive./ He turns all his attention to his lessons.
[23:55] Shadowcaller: (he hope I survive? How sweet…)
[23:56] Shadowcaller: "Well, we should get going I guess…"
[23:57] Happy: Hope stands up. Dal seems to be paying very close attention to Seren.
[23:59] Wolfbane: Promise stands up as well.
[00:00] Happy: They walk out. "Why do you want to return to Kyou?"
[00:00] Shadowcaller: "I need to buy a few books… and gather any clues about Arik."
[00:01] Happy: "You're starting to worry?"
[00:02] Shadowcaller: "Not really… I just want to know where he went, thats all."
[00:03] Happy: "Of course we'll help you," Hope says. She still doesn't like Arik, but for Cessie's sake, she'll try and help find him.
[00:04] Wolfbane: Promise nods. "Of course we'll help."
[00:04] Shadowcaller: "I knew you would, as soon as we are back from the spirit realm that is."
[00:07] Shadowcaller: (So… how will we end this?)
[00:07] Wolfbane: (They enter the hut and see Aegnor?)
[00:07] Shadowcaller: (Hmm… so now you will be gone then Wolfy? Oh well…)
[00:09] Happy: (Yeah…. unless anyone can think of anything else to do or say v.v)
[00:09] Shadowcaller: (well, you better come up with something:P)
[00:12] Shadowcaller: (otherwise I'm going to sleep.:S)
[00:12] Happy: (I probably should go to bed soon too)
[00:12] Happy:
[00:12] Happy: oops, wrong chat
[00:13] Shadowcaller: ^^
[00:13] Shadowcaller: Good night then…
[00:13] Shadowcaller: We see what we do tomorrow
[00:13] Wolfbane: Night you two
[00:13] Happy: i'll chat in the group chat for a little while longer
[00:13] Shadowcaller: Bye Wolfy, we will miss you
[00:13] Wolfbane: *hugs SC*
[00:13] Wolfbane: Thanks
[00:13] Shadowcaller: D'aww
[00:13] Shadowcaller: *waves*
[00:14] Shadowcaller: *puts on top hat*
[00:14] Shadowcaller: I bid you good night *tips top hat*
