Safe haven

Post by Lady Voira on Fri Jun 05, 2015 7:47 pm

Voira woke, sore and tired and disoriented. She looked around, recognizing the warehouse. Judging from the lightening sky, she guessed that it was close to dawn.

Tapping a little tin, she heard noises of breathing, snoring, and general early morning sounds. She tried to suppress the stink of the pile, formerly her bed. What happened last night? Why was she sleeping on a smelly pile of rags? Then, she remembered. Fire. Someone shouting after them, recognizing Dorlin. Smoke. Speed. Then darkness. She was so sore! There must be somewhere to go for help.

Seeing Dorlin slumped over in the chair, fast asleep, Voira decided she could sneak out and take a drastic chance.

----

It was farther to Keep Venture than she remembered. After a few wrong turns, Voira found herself in the steps of Keep Venture, bedraggled and hoping no one would notice. She took a deep breath and knocked on the door.

-----

After a haughty servant finally granted her access to the parlor, Voira sat on the settee anxiously awaiting her savior.

Lord Timmond Venture entered a few minutes later. Though his jacket was neatly pressed, Voira noted his wrinkled shirt and the rings under his red eyes. He looked like he hadn't slept all night. A servant followed, pouring coffee for both nobles.

Timmond first takes Voira hand, kissing the air above it in a practiced bow.

"My lady. I am pleased to see you safe. I was most distressed by the news of your family."

Voira stood as Timmond walked in, blushing as he took her hand. She looked into his eyes, stuttering slightly as she began to plead her case.

"Timmond, I don't know what happened! I was just returning home after an evening with friends and i saw my home burning! I slept a bit in an appalling location, and as soon as I woke, I knew you were the only person I have left to turn to! My family is dead," she sniffed, as tears welled up in her eyes, "Please! Is there anything you can do to help me? My steward was still sleeping when I left, but he will need a place to stay as well."

Timmond slides her a coffee cup, sitting as he listens. He seems distracted, but shakes his head and ooh's in all the right places.

"Terrible. I can't imagine such a thing. And on the very same night of our own attack. I find this no coincidence. "

He sips his coffee, thinking.

"Do you have any idea who could have done it?"

Voira wiped her eyes, took a sip of coffee, and asked "you were attacked too? I wonder if it was the same person!" She slumped back with a sigh,"I heard a voice call out and it was terrifying! I didn't see anyone, though. I would recognize the voice, though I'd rather not." Sitting up straight, "if we were attacked, and you were attracted.. Where can we go that is safe?"

He places a reassuring hand on hers.

"Never fear, my Lady. You're safe here. Venture has more tools at our disposal than our enemies know. Maybe this'll all turn out for the best. You should go get some sleep. You and your Terrisman are both welcome under my protection..."

"Thank you, Timmond, you're kind as ever. I left a note with my Steward saying that I was coming here. I hope he will come as soon as he wakes. We are in your debt!"
