Thokk's Lands VII

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

Pasta sounds lovely dear.
Nadine grabs some noodles out of a glass vase and starts making Pasta Alfredo.
Who

"Me help?"
Obscurejones

Nadine nods.
Grab me a stick of butter from the fridge.
Who

She runs over to the fridge, it takes her a minute to find the butter but she does and brings it back.
Obscurejones

Nadine cuts off about half the stick and puts it in the sauce.
Who

Yummo, Elyea stand next ot her incase she needs more help.
Obscurejones

Nadine hand sher back the remaining half stick.
Run this back to the fridge.
Who

And back she goes, isn't she helpful?
Obscurejones

Very Happy
Nadine finishes the alfredo.
Bowl or plate dear?
Who

"Bowl please."
Obscurejones

Nadine ladles out of a bowl of pasta and hands it Elyea along with a fork.
Who

She takes it too the table and stars eating, Rabbit hops behind her, shaking a fist at Nadine.
Obscurejones

Nadine smirks and ladles her own Alfredo onto a plate before sitting at the table and digging in.
Who

Om nom nom.
Obscurejones

Om nom deadtime.
Who

"Finished Mummy."
Obscurejones

Nadine grabs her bowl and goes to wash the dishes.
Who

"Me help?"
Obscurejones

Nadine nods and keeps washing.
Who

Elyuea drags a chair over beside Nadine and climbs up so she can help.
Obscurejones

Nadine hands her the plate.  It's already mostly clean.
Who

Elyea starts to clean it then, very enthusiastically. She just copys what Nadine did.
Obscurejones

Smile
That's fine.  Nadine waits for her to finish.
Who

"Finished Mummy! Clean now."

She proudly holds the plate out.
Obscurejones

Nadine smiles and takes it back to put away with the rest of the dishes.
Who

Elyea hops of the chair and drags it back to where she found it.
Obscurejones

And Nadine tries to take her hand and walk her back to their room.
Who

No problem, once there she starts looking around for her crayons.
Obscurejones

They're where she left them.  Only, exactly one inch to the left.
Who

She doesn't notice and srets about drawing a picture.
Obscurejones

Nadine goes to untie rabbit's legs.
Who

Something which Rabbit is very greatful for. He gives er a hug when she's finished.
Obscurejones

She reachs down to ruffle his ears.
Good Rabbit
Who

"Why you talking to Rabbit?"

She's holding her picture.
Obscurejones

Nadine shrugs and looks over the picture.
Who

It's a picture of Elyea, at the bottom is some scribbly Truespeech.
Obscurejones

Nadine smiles.
And what is it?
Who

"It's me."

She nods.
Obscurejones

Al portals in outside the room and weakly knocks on the door and then double checks that he is in fact wearing pants.
Who

"Who that?"
Obscurejones

Nadine goes to check  she opens the door a crack and laughs.  Al walks in shaking his head.
Morning Elyea.  New drawing?
Who

She nods her head looking a smidge confused, how'd he know?
Obscurejones

Castle told him.  He looks over the scribbles at the bottom.
Who

It would appear to be Elyea's name in Truespeech.
Obscurejones

Huh.
Al runs through his memory as to what exactly saying that out loud would do to Elyea.  He also takes a moment to memorize her truename.
Who

It could teleport her to whoever's saying it, it could make another Eylea, it might even disintegrate her. Only one way to find out.
Obscurejones

He crosses his fingers in his pocket.
Repeat after me. <Elyea>
Who

<Elyea>

She turns to dust the instant the words leave her lips.

She vanishes in a puff of pink smoke

Another Elyea appears next to Al, Rabbit drops to the floor when it does, having been trying to get on to the bed whilst this was happening.
Obscurejones

Nadine checks it's mind for nasty surprises.
Who

It seems to be quite a simple mind, and seeing as it's a copy of Elyea that's saying something.
Obscurejones

Not evil?
Al casts a few spells to gauge the full effect of the copy Elyea.  How long it will last etc.?
Who

Not this time and seeing as how Elyea's not actively concentrating it's got about 15 minutes.

Elyea walks up to the double and waves.

"Hello."
Obscurejones

Al and Nadine sit on the bed to watch how this plays out.
Who

"Want to play blocks?"

The double nods and off they go to build a tower.
Obscurejones

Al and Nadine watch and chit chat.
...A cat?
She's not just a cat.
She's a cat.
Who

With team work they're managing to build quite an elaborate tower. Oh, and for the record, she's a cat.
Obscurejones

Ouch.
Al and Nadine switch to arguing via telepathy.
Who

Well for now, it's entirely possible she could be trained to act more human.

And they run out of blocks....that's never happened before.
Obscurejones

He's been trying!  When he doesn't get distracted...
Nadine walks over and looks over the tower.
This seems shorter than usual.
Who

"No more blocks."
Obscurejones

Al looks up.
Has that ever happened before?
Who

She shakes her head, the double climbs in to bed with Rabbit.
Obscurejones

He frowns.
Do you feel like there are no more blocks?
Who

"They're gone."

Anyone observant might notice the double slowly fading away.
Obscurejones

Al definitely notices and smiles.
But wouldn't you like more blocks?
Who

She nods.
Obscurejones

Well, can't you just make more?
Who

She's never thought of that before.

She screws up her eyes and starts concentrating.
Obscurejones

Al keeps an eye on her and the double.
Who

More blocks appear and Rabbit literally hits the ceiling as the double ceases to be. Elyea opens her eyes again.

"Did it!"
Obscurejones

Al smiles and nods.
But where did the other Elyea go?
Who

Elyea looks around and then starts crying.
Obscurejones

Al frowns.
Elyea stop crying.  Do you remember the word I taught you?
Who

She sniffles and nods.
Obscurejones

Well if you ever miss the other you you can say the magic word and she'll come back.
Nadine scowls.
But only with mummy's permission.
Who

"Okay."
Obscurejones

Alright.  Later I'll try to teach you how to use the magic word to do other things, okay?
He hops off the bed and forms the portal back to Kelri.
Who

"Bye Al."
Obscurejones

He hops through the portal.
So.  What did we learn today?  Besides a new magic word.
Who

"Did reading."
Obscurejones

Nadine reaches out to ruffle her hair.
I thought we learned we can't have everything at once.
Who

"What?"

She hasn't linked the two things.
Obscurejones

When you have the other you, you can't have all the blocks.  When you have all the blocks, you can't have the other you.
Who

"Why?"
Obscurejones

Nadine shrugs.
Magic.
Who

"Okay."
Obscurejones

Nadine laughs and tries to hug Elyea.
You're terribly trysting.
Who

Elyea hugs her back.

"What's trysting?"
Obscurejones

Trysting? That's what you're not allowed to do till you're older.  Trusting, which I meant to say, is what you are.
Who

"What it mean?"
Obscurejones

Which one?
Who

"Trusting."
Obscurejones

It means you believe what people say without worrying that they might be wrong.
Who

"Me trust you Mummy."
Obscurejones

Nadine gives her a little squeeze.
Thank you.
Who

Elyea lets go of her and jumps on to the bed.
Obscurejones

Nadine glances round for Rabbit.
Who

Rabbit's being hugged by Elyea, who yawns.
Obscurejones

Nadine moves to tuck her in.
