A side of the Town with dirtier, more crowded streets, broken-down buildings, and a higher crime rate.

And, it seems, occasionally, Zerg...

Greeny rushes out of Merant's Temple and into the slums, stopping across the street from the Temple's entrance.  He's equal parts anxious, mournful, and proud, but most of all, this wolf is ELATED.

Not only is he out of the evil atmosphere of the temples...

Not only have the terrible echoes in his head faded...

BUT HE'S ALIVE!

So although he's very concerned, his tail is wagging hard.

A minute later, Quinn hurries out, presumably with Aurora, and looking very, distinctly, worried.

Aurora is indeed there, looking equally worried. No idea what to say.

"Oh good, you got out okay.  I really didn't fancy going back in there and doing the whole rescue thing.  Now, care to fill me in?" Greeny asks, sitting on his back legs.

"I think they where supposed to get some rings...I'm not really sure, my head's still a little fuzzy."

"Well, I got shot by an arrow, stabbed in the back with a sword, imploded and cursed... I'm sure I'm missing a few.  Ooh yes, pitchforks, pictchforks aren't fun."  He looks at Aurora sympathetically.  "But I alway choose to come back."

"It varies," Greeny says thoughtfully.  "Usually I end up on a tropical beach, which is all right, with hula girls, who aren't much use to me, and some tequila, which I can't drink, so death is normally a bit sandy.  This time, however... well, my spirit was somehow trapped, maybe accidentally I'll grant you, on Merant's plane, and that was dreadful.  There was a crushing, oppressive sense of evil there that crawled into my head like uninvited maggots, gnawing away at my conscience, encouraging me to- but hey, I didn't kill anybody, right?  I'm tough, me."

"Oh...I don't remember anything..."

And now she's rather glad she didn't.

Quinn, meanwhile, goes to slide her arm around Aurora's shoulders, and takes a deep breath...

"There were rings, yeah. And...a mother and child who Kalidas was telling Jonah to kill...and Jamin got slashed by somebody with a sword. And something about Tempus."

Greeny opens his mouth a few times, unable to properly put his thoughts into words on the first attempts.

"Jonah is a killer.  I've seen it, and it didn't phase her one bit, and that was before she split in two so the same'd go for Jamin too, but killing an innocent would push her over an edge.  What edge, I don't know, but I bet it wouldn't have been a good edge.  She didn't actually do it, did she?" Greeny asks uneasily.

Quinn shakes her head. "No. Sometimes yeah you gotta do what you gotta do...but I think she would have if I...if I hadn't put myself in the way long enough for her to get over it."

She pauses.

"I think, though...after we left...Kalidas did."

Greeny snorts.
"That wouldn't surprise me, he's a jerk," the wolf replies as the Temple doors open.

Jonah, supporting her broken arm but now otherwise and surprisingly looking her usual self, smiles at her friends.

"Broken bones hurt a lot, don't they?" she comments as the wolf casts his healing magic.  "I can't hang around - I've done something a bit-"

"Foolish?"

"No, just, no, okay?  But I think I best skip Town for a while.  Tell Mel I'm sorry.  Jamin'll figure the rest out.  Come on, wolf," she adds with a nod.

((Last post until next Friday, sorry - going on holiday!  See you in a week!))

((Aw. See ya!))

Quinn nods, and tries to give Jonah another careful hug. "Be careful, alright?" she says, before sighing, and looking back at Aurora. "So...to the tavern?"

Aurora nods.

"I should probably get back to work..."

"We should go home so you can change first," Quinn points out. "And...maybe you should take a day off. Considering what happened..."

"Um. Well...I think she wouldn't mind you being in shredded clothes." Quinn giggles a little, and blushes, then turns serious once more. "But the bloodstains should probably have something done with them."

Aurora nods, she's probably right.

"Yeah..."

"C'mon them. Let's go get you changed. You can borrow some more of mine if you have to."

And Quinn will try to lead the way back to her apartment!

Girl plus wolf had disappeared at that point with a satisfied *BAMF* - meaning they've now been gone a week.

And where Jonah had been not long before, Jamin now appears, running out of the temple.  She looks in vain up and down the street to see if she can spot her other self, and then sets off at a run towards the streets.
