Black Sun over Avanoor

Postby Mr_D » Fri Sep 16, 2005 10:22 am

Vergil studied the night sky from his window in the Jaded Wayfarer inn, the stars glittered like diamonds in the black velvet of the heavens. One star, however, outshone them all. The emporer star. It's dazzling white light the crown of the constellation it seemed to call to Vergil, as though ushering him towards his ultimate destiny. He smiled, casting his gaze south, in the direction of the port city of Striden, the mercenary city and the next step on his journey.

The next morning he awoke to clear blue skies and the sounds of birds chirping in a frantic choir. After dressing himself he headed downstairs to await his new comrades.

Vergil walked over to the table and sat down

"Well it seems I was not the only one to decide on an early start." He laughed.

Korena yawned slightly, rising from bed. She looked around at the first rays of golden sun touching the curtains around her rather large bed. An odd asortment of precious jewels and such were laid out for her along the top of her dresser as usual.

She stared at their glittering forms for a while before rising and picking something new out of the wardrobe to put on. It took her awhile to find some reasonable traveling gear, but she managed. Stuffing a couple essentials into a knapsack she threw it over her shoulder and progressed back to the inn.

She walked in, seeing two of her companions from the night before already up.

"Ah, good morning miss korena." Vergil smiled, raising a hand in greeting.

Korena offered him a large smile in return. She moved over to sit down next to them, "It's a pleasure seeing you again. I gave it a bit of thought last night, and decided that perhaps it was time for me to see more of the world, and do something good in the process."

"I'm pleased to hear that." Vergil said.

"Besides, it will be nice to get away for a while...I seem to have developed a bit of a suitor recently that is not to my tastes." She frowned slightly, then smiled as she saw the server bringing over a plate of eggs and lamb, "But breakfast is more important now."

Vergil nodded in agreement as he began to eat the simple meal of bread and cereal before him. In truth he was eager to depart aswell.

Korena finished her meal in record time. She had been very hungry, not having eaten the night before...

She looked to Vergil when she had finished, "When would be leaving then?"

"I personally would like to depart as soon as possible." He replied, washing his meal down with water.

"That sounds like the perfect time to me." She picked up a glass of wine and drank from it, sipping the fine liquid. There was no use in rushing through her drink when there was no definite time of departure.
