Kyou 29

[22:07] Shadowcaller: Um… lets see how we ended
[22:08] Happy: Hope and Cessie were invisible, Hope wounded, and everyone fleeing
[22:08] Shadowcaller: As Hope can't see Cessie she is just running throught the woods, not really sure what direction she is going
[22:08] Shadowcaller: She can't see Michicora or Simone either
[22:09] Shadowcaller: She continues running?
[22:10] Happy: She wouldn't have run so far that she lost sight of Michicora and Simone
[22:11] Shadowcaller: Well, they have gone another direction it would seem, Hope is running in the forest after all, its hard to see anything beacuse of the trees
[22:11] Happy: As soon as she gets into the trees, she stops and watches for pursuit
[22:11] Happy: Simone flees.
[22:12] Shadowcaller: Michicora is next to Simone, she do the same thing Hope dose
[22:12] Happy: Hope means to try and fight anyone following them, to protect the others.
[22:12] Shadowcaller: There is a lot of shouts and movements near the gate
[22:12] Happy: Simone tries to find somewhere to hide
[22:13] Happy: A tree to climb
[22:13] Shadowcaller: Lots of trees to climb here, question is if she is a good climber
[22:13] Happy: Of course she is
[22:13] Happy: She climbs buildings pretty easily.
[22:14] Shadowcaller: Okay then, she climbs up in a tree then?
[22:14] Shadowcaller: Remember that Hope is still invisible
[22:14] Happy: yes. Where she can still see Michicora
[22:14] Happy: Since she can't see the others.
[22:15] Happy: Hope is quiet and listening, hoping to hear Cessie moving.
[22:15] Happy: And watching for pursuit.
[22:16] Shadowcaller: There is movement at the gate, some guards are following you
[22:16] Happy: Hope puts away the sword and takes out the longbow
[22:17] Shadowcaller: As the guards come closer to the tree-line. Hope suddenly feels something lifting her off the ground, pulling her away from the guards, above the tree tops
[22:17] Happy: gah!
[22:17] Happy: What is it?
[22:17] Happy: Air elemental?
[22:18] Shadowcaller: /Foolish woman, did you really think you could go alone against all those soldiers?/
[22:18] Shadowcaller: She knows that voice…
[22:18] Happy: Arik?
[22:18] Shadowcaller: /Cessie really pick strange friends…/
[22:18] Shadowcaller: (yes.)
[22:19] Happy: /No. But I would have given Cessie time to escape. Where is she?/
[22:20] Shadowcaller: /Nearby, still running, its impossible to fly within the forest, now why in Helios name are you here? Why didn't you stay in the inn as I told you to?!/
[22:21] Happy: /Because we had to destroy the Legion./
[22:21] Happy: /Where have you been? Cessie has been worried./
[22:22] Shadowcaller: /I have been researching, and hunted./
[22:24] Shadowcaller: /We will met up with the others soon enough, for now, you could just be quiet./
[22:25] Shadowcaller: Hope feels herself dragged along the tree-tops, further and further away from Kyou.
[22:26] Happy: brb food
[22:26] Shadowcaller: (okay.)
[22:28] Shadowcaller: She soon starts to feel tired as she is not flying on her own but rather dragged along with some type of spell
[22:28] Happy: What's happening with Simone?
[22:29] Shadowcaller: She is still sitting where you left her, Michicora have climbed up in a nearby tree, watching
[22:29] Shadowcaller: The guards appears to have lost your trail
[22:30] Happy: Simone climbs down when she thinks it is safe.
[22:31] Shadowcaller: She can still hear their voices, but they are growing more and more distant
[22:31] Happy: She can still see Michicora?
[22:31] Shadowcaller: Nope
[22:32] Shadowcaller: She just saw her climb up in a tree nearby
[22:32] Happy: Oh. Then she's lost in the woods…
[22:33] Shadowcaller: Hope can see a lot of branches break off under her and then she is dragged down there
[22:34] Shadowcaller: /Sit here while I get my sister, I should not be long…/
[22:34] Happy: (Is she injured by the branches?)
[22:34] Shadowcaller: Simone can't hear the guards anymore
[22:34] Shadowcaller: (nope.)
[22:37] Happy: Simone doesn't know what to do… she's lost in the woods, and she has no skills at all for this environment.
[22:38] Shadowcaller: Hope finds herself alone in the middle of the woods, the torn away branches creating a small clearing
[22:39] Shadowcaller: above her
[22:39] Happy: Hope finds cover while she watches and waits, bow ready.
[22:41] Shadowcaller: Simone finds that Yokai have returned to its utter silence, she can only hear her own breathing and the sound the branches makes as she weights them down
[22:41] Happy: Simone begins to wander, to try and find the others. Which is, of course, the wrong thing to do when lost in the woods, but she doesn't know that.
[22:42] Shadowcaller: "Follow." She suddenly hears behind her back
[22:43] Happy: (Michicora?)
[22:43] Shadowcaller: (Yes.)
[22:43] Shadowcaller: (Who else talks like that?:P)
[22:43] Happy: (Well I had to make sure, didn't I?)
[22:43] Happy: Simone eeps, and then turns and follows.
[22:44] Shadowcaller: When she turns around she can only see some grass move, she assumes that was the direction Michicora was going
[22:44] Happy: She follows as best as she can
[22:45] Shadowcaller: She follows it, but never actually see Michicora, just small signs of her, most likely deliberatly left there
[22:48] Shadowcaller: Hope can hear something moving closer to her
[22:48] Happy: Hope prepares her bow.
[22:49] Shadowcaller: The sound comes closer
[22:49] Shadowcaller: She can't see anything thought
[22:50] Shadowcaller: Simone starts to feel exhuased as she been running for a long time now, no idea where she is going
[22:50] Shadowcaller: Just following the vague signs Michicora left after her
[22:50] Happy: She starts to have trouble finding them.
[22:51] Happy: Hope is still watching for the sound, ready to shoot if it's hostile.
[22:52] Shadowcaller: The sound is close now, she can see movement near the clearing
[22:53] Happy: *still watching*
[22:53] Shadowcaller: She don't actually see anything, just grass moving in a way that it naturally won't do
[22:54] Happy: She doesn't shoot, thinking it's probably Cessie.
[22:54] Shadowcaller: Simone feels like she is really lost now
[22:54] Shadowcaller: /Hope?/
[22:54] Happy: Simone continues wandering, her pace slowing.
[22:54] Shadowcaller: (its Cessies voice.)
[22:54] Happy: /I'm here./
[22:54] Shadowcaller: /Where exaclty? You know I can't see you…/
[22:56] Happy: "Here." Hope says, but not very loudly. /I can't see you either. Is Arik with you? And the others?/
[22:56] Shadowcaller: /Arik is here somewhere, I told him to find the others, I dismiss my invisibility now…/
[22:56] Shadowcaller: She can see Cessie appear in the middle of the glade
[22:56] Shadowcaller: *clearing
[22:57] Happy: Hope steps out. "Then you can dismiss mine too. I haven't seen anyone but you for some time."
[22:58] Shadowcaller: Cessie hears Hope's voice and dismisses the spell in that direction, Hope becomes visible again
[23:00] Shadowcaller: Simone hears a voice above her "You need to be faster, there is a wizard nearby…"
[23:00] Shadowcaller: "A undead."
[23:00] Happy: (Michicora?)
[23:00] Shadowcaller: (Yes.)
[23:00] Happy: (You really should specify when you say 'a voice' :P)
[23:01] Happy: Simone looks alarmed and tries to run faster.
[23:01] Shadowcaller: (Well, thats the way it is.)
[23:01] Shadowcaller: She hears Michicora move in the trees above her, but then she becomes silent once again
[23:02] Happy: (You could say 'Michicora's voice' at least)
[23:02] Shadowcaller: (I might.)
[23:03] Shadowcaller: Cessie: "I can't belive he's back… I really thought I had lost him again there."
[23:03] Shadowcaller: Cessie looks excited about Arik's return
[23:04] Happy: "Let's get out of the open at least," Hope says. "I hope he found Simone. She's useless in the woods. Worse than you."
[23:05] Shadowcaller: "I don't think anyone can be worse then me, Arik guided me here."
[23:05] Shadowcaller: "Its good to hear the sound of his voice again."
[23:06] Happy: "Were you hurt at all?"
[23:06] Shadowcaller: "No… but I think you are." You can see that she stares at your arm
[23:07] Shadowcaller: Simone notices that it starts to get dark.
[23:07] Shadowcaller: Michicoras voice can be heard again "Its still following us, I think he have life sense."
[23:08] Happy: "It's not bad." Hope bandages her arm, but doesn't use any healing, in case someone else needs it worse.
[23:08] Happy: "I can't keep up… Shouldn't we just hide?"
[23:08] Happy: (Simone)
[23:09] Shadowcaller: Cessie still looks a bit worried but don't mentione the arm again "So… what happend there?"
[23:10] Shadowcaller: Michicora: "Didin't you hear girl? He have life-sense, he can find us wherever we are, thats the reason he is still following us."
[23:11] Happy: "Then why run?"
[23:12] Shadowcaller: "You can't keep running?"
[23:14] Happy: "No, not this long!" She sounds out of breath.
[23:14] Shadowcaller: "I will defend you then."
[23:16] Shadowcaller: "Climb up here…"
[23:17] Happy: Simone climbs.
[23:17] Happy: Slowly.
[23:18] Shadowcaller: She can only see Michicors eyes as they glow in the dark
[23:18] Shadowcaller: As she reaches the top of the tree
[23:19] Shadowcaller: "Its closing in…"
[23:19] Shadowcaller: Its of course getting dark where Hope and Cessie is too
[23:20] Happy: Hope starts to make a camp.
[23:21] Shadowcaller: "They better come back soon… it has been forever."
[23:21] Shadowcaller: "Hope, why do you think those guards attacked?" Cessie asks as she tries to help any way she can
[23:22] Happy: "I don't know. Simone said they wanted to arrest us. Maybe the spirits are still killing?"
[23:23] Shadowcaller: "I'm not sure, someone was doing something magic inside that town…"
[23:23] Happy: "It was right after Simone said Jopo's name. Maybe he was arrested, so they're rounding up everyone who knows him?"
[23:25] Shadowcaller: "Jopo's name? I wonder why he would get arrested… there is something strange going on there, I'm sure Arik knows something of it, he said he been watching the village for some hours now."
[23:26] Shadowcaller: Michicora is suddenly gone again, leaving Simone alone atop of the tree
[23:26] Happy: Simone clutches her knife, feeling very alone and helpless.
[23:28] Shadowcaller: She can see a strange blue light enlighten the forest
[23:32] Happy: She watches.
[23:32] Happy: Hope offers Cessie some of the dried food in her pack, and keeps watch.
[23:32] Shadowcaller: In the light she can see a figure moving between thr tree tops, avoding more flashes of blue light
[23:33] Happy: (Too bad Simone doesn't know that Arik is a lich, or she could have told Michicora not to attack the undead wizard.)
[23:33] Shadowcaller: (How would she react to that?)
[23:35] Happy: (No idea. She doesn't really know much about undead.)
[23:35] Shadowcaller: (Even if she saw one?)
[23:36] Happy: (Has she seen one, that she knew was one? I can't remember)
[23:39] Shadowcaller: The flashes continues for a while, but then they suddenly stop again
[23:41] Shadowcaller: Cessie don't seem able to fall asleep
[23:41] Happy: (Do Hope and Cessie see t he flashes?)
[23:42] Shadowcaller: (Not directly sicne the trees are in the way.)
[23:42] Shadowcaller: *since
[23:42] Happy: Then Hope will continue to keep watch, trying to encourage Cessie to sleep.
[23:44] Happy: And Simone will stay in the tree, too scared to sleep.
[23:46] Shadowcaller: Simone is suddenly pulled away by great force, she closes her eyes as she is certain to cut by the branches, but as she opens her eyes again she is floating in the air, not a singel scratch.
[23:46] Shadowcaller: /So, who was that?/
[23:46] Happy: She struggles not to scream.
[23:46] Happy: /Ar… Arik…?/ *terrified*
[23:47] Shadowcaller: /Yes? Is there… oh, your afraid?/
[23:48] Happy: /I… I'm not scared!/ She tries to say it, but can't even convince herself.
[23:49] Shadowcaller: /We are going back to the others, any idea who that attacker was?/
[23:50] Shadowcaller: /Cessie told me that there was two of you, I guess she didn't told the other one about me then?/
[23:52] Happy: /Michicora say undead wizard was following us. Is that who attack you?/
[23:53] Shadowcaller: /Not exaclty… I think this "Michicora" attacked me./
[23:53] Shadowcaller: *exactly
[23:53] Happy: /She Servant of Kuori./
[23:54] Shadowcaller: /Right… well, she might attack again if we don't go back to the others, I know she is following us…/
[23:54] Happy: /Miss Cessie be glad to see you. She been very worried./
[23:55] Shadowcaller: /Of course she has, now I need to fix all your problems it would seem, but there are things you need to be aware of…/
[23:57] Shadowcaller: Simone is dragged above the tree tops (Arik is still invisible.)
[23:58] Happy: She has her eyes tightly closed at first, but after a while, opens them and tries to see if she can make out anything in the darkness.
[23:59] Shadowcaller: She can see a endess sea of trees passing by underneath her, above her is a star-filled sky
[23:59] Happy: Hope tries to brush Cessie's hair to help her relax and sleep.
[00:00] Shadowcaller: (Hm, its 1 AM and its school tomorrow… think you have energy to continue tomorrow?)
[00:01] Happy: (Hopefully)
[00:01] Happy: (These shorter sessions work better for me)
[00:01] Shadowcaller: (Yeah… hopefully.)
[00:01] Shadowcaller: (They do don't they?)
[00:01] Shadowcaller: (Anyway, I'm going to bed then, good night.)
[00:01] Happy: (goodnight. I'll postt his)
[00:02] Shadowcaller: (Perfect.)
