Thokk's Lands IV

Far from the town there is a small coastal village.  It is quaint and unremarkable save for a single thing.  Over looking the village is a magnificently large castle on a hill.  These are Thokk's lands.

At least they were.  Currently the castle and surrounding fields are controlled by Firiat and the remains of the Order.
Obscurejones

What?  If it had been anyone else?  Than what?
Who

"I would have killed them."
Obscurejones

Well that's nice.
He starts to float off.
You'll have an assignment soon.  Be ready.
Who

"I will."

She starts walking back to her room, she's so close to crying but she doesn't want to be seen doing it
Metakirb

Jeska Gets Elyea, and tries to follow behind her.
Who

Once there Erou, falls onto her bed and bursts into sobbing.
Metakirb

Erou...

Jeska sits next to her.
Who

"Why can't I do anything right?"

"What wrong?"
Metakirb

You didn't do anything wrong.
Who

"I couldn't hurt him..."
Metakirb

Of course not, you love him.

She slowly reaches out to put a hand on Erou's Shoulder.

You're too much of a good person to do that.
Who

She goes back to sobbing and tries to hug Jeska. It should be pointed out just how cold she is. Elyea's bored so she wanders out into the corridor.
Metakirb

Jeska looks surprised, but hugs her back, trying to ignore how cold she is.
Obscurejones

Nadine checks on her lab.
Who

She doesn't let go.

"I've got to be stronger."

---

Elyea wanders down the corridor, looking for something to do.
Metakirb

Only if you want to be stronger.
Obscurejones

Nadine wanders out and goes looking for Elyea.
Who

She's just wandering in a corridor.

----

"I have to.."
Metakirb

Then i'll help you.
Obscurejones

Nadine walks up.
Hi.  Whatcha doing?
Who

"Bored."

---

"How?"
Metakirb

However i can.
Obscurejones

Want to see my new toy?
Who

She nods.

----

"I have a job soon, I can do it."
Metakirb

Jeska smiles.
Obscurejones

Nadine leads Elyea to a large bookcase and starts pushing the case to the side.
Who

Erou just holds onto Jeska for the time being.

----

Elyea watches.

"Need help?"
Obscurejones

A little.
Metakirb

I'll always be here for you, i promise.
Who

Elyea lends assistance as best she can.

----

"Thank you."

Still showing no signs of letting go.
Obscurejones

The bookcase slides away to reveal a short corridor.
Metakirb

Jeska seems happy with that. Not wanting her to let go.
Who

After a while she tries to let go.

----

"We go down there?"
Metakirb

Jeska let's her, reluctantly.
Obscurejones

Yep.  Nadine walks down the corridor into a distinctive lab.  Most of the equipment looks untouched except for a large holding tank.
Who

Elyea follows her, looking around at everything.

----

"Thank you, I needed that."
Metakirb

You're welcome.
Obscurejones

Probably the most interesting feature of the lab is the man in the holding tank.  He's hooked up to several IV's and is floating in pillar of clear liquid.
Who

"Maybe if we'd met under different circumstances."

----

"Who that?"

I think I already know the answer.
Metakirb

yeah...
Obscurejones

It's my new toy.
Who

"Things were so much simpler back then."

----

She doesn't really say anything, it's not like any toy she's ever seen.
Metakirb

I kinda wish we could go back to when we first met sometimes...
Obscurejones

I'm going to use him to hurt all the bad people.
Who

"I meant before that."

----

"Who bad people?"
Metakirb

Really? How far before?
Obscurejones

Nadine shrugs.
I'm still deciding.  Probably Al.
Who

She just nods, no idea who Al is.

-----

"Before I even knew who the Toy Maker was.."
Metakirb

I'd probably have still been trying to escape from Keryn...
Obscurejones

Maybe Erou after that.
Who

She looks shocked, she knows an Erou.

"No, Erou good."

----

"I'm sorry, we could have made quite a team."
Metakirb

No... I was really different then... I'd only think of myself.
Obscurejones

She's not all good.
Who

"Never mind."

-----

She just looks confused.
Metakirb

I wish i could have changed things though... Been stronger so i never had to be given away...
Obscurejones

Nadine sighs and starts for the door.
Anyway he's not finished yet.
Who

"You're one of the strongest people I've ever met."

----

Elyea waves good bye to the man in the tube and follows Nadine.
Metakirb

Not always... I was born weak for a demon. So i was given away, my family wanted nothing to do with me. Keryn took me for himself.
Obscurejones

Nadine walks out and starts pushing the bookcase, once Elyea's out.
Who

Elyea helps, she likes helping.

-----

"I didn't mean it like that."
Obscurejones

A small bird made of paper flaps it's way down the hall towards Erou.
------
Remember not to tell anyone about my new toy.  I want it to be a surprise.
Metakirb

Nevermind, What about you though? Before Everything with the toymaker, what were you like?
Who

She nods, wouldn't want to ruin the surprise. She does like a good surprise.

-----

"My name was Lilly, I was a gambler, I was the best. I used to say I could beat anyone at any game they cared to mention. Then one night this old guy comes up to me, offers me enough money to set me for life on a single game, if I lost I'd become his he said, but I wasn't going to lose. Six minutes later I lost. That was six millenia ago..."
Obscurejones

The bird chirps outside Erou's door.
Who

She goes to the door to see what was chirping.
Metakirb

That was the toymaker, right?
Who

"Yep."
Obscurejones

It's a paper bird flapping outside the door.
Metakirb

What's that?
Who

"I don't know."

She tries to grab hold of it.
Obscurejones

It flaps into her hand and settles, inanimate.
Who

"Looks like there's something on it."

She tries to unfold it.
Obscurejones

It's a short note in small spidery script.
"Dei.  Make sure he knows not to antagonize the order."
Who

She heads off to find Al, note in hand.
Obscurejones

He's in his lab looking over a large map.  The objects on the map slide around each other but there are a few large blank spots on the map.
Metakirb

Jeska follows her.
Who

"Do you want him dead dead or should I just trigger a regeneration?"
Metakirb

Um... What if Kelri's there?
Obscurejones

If she's there rough him up.  You only need to scare him.  If she's not feel free to eliminate him entirely.
Who

She nods and shifts, starting to draw a seal on the floor.
Obscurejones

Also keep an eye out for John's biolab this week.  It's missing.
Metakirb

Shall i go with her?
Who

And she's gone.
Obscurejones

If you like.  She may appreciate4 the support.
Metakirb

okay.

She vanishes.
Obscurejones

John moves to stealthily leave his room.  He lacks the stealth.
Who

"Where you going?"
Obscurejones

Just checking on the bus.
Who

"And you weren't going to tell me?"
Obscurejones

Nope.  I was being sneaky.
Who

"Well you suck at that."
Obscurejones

He smiles.
I am aware.  Not exactly making with the sneaky.
Who

"So, why were you abandoning me?"
Obscurejones

That's a bit harsh.  Just doing a quick check to make sure everyone's cleared out and hobo's haven't moved in.
Who

She shrugs.

"Fair enough."
Obscurejones

He hops out and makes for the portal.  After a few minutes Nadine wanders in.
Who

"Can I help you?"
Obscurejones

Just looking.  What's your name?
Who

"I'm Dawn."

How old is Nadine? I lost track somewhere between her playing with blocks and building a killing machine.
