aerondor - Humility

The light is so bright, shining just above your face. Cold steel touches skin at your back while the air currents tickle your flesh. Wherever you are, it is not the home you remember, you are naked, and most concerning, you cannot make the slightest move as you lie there.

Suddenly a clunk, the sound of gears and a dizzying shift in position leave you almost upright. You slide down with no way to halt yourself until the balls of your feet hit the floor. You see a stepladder pushed into position above you before an excited looking tiny gnome climbs it and begins to poke and prod and lift. Going into truly uncomfortable detail as he examines your teeth, then your toes.

When no stone is left unturned he stands on the top step of the ladder to look you in the eye. "You are perfectly healthy." he declares, seeming immensely pleased with the fact. He pokes you in the forehead then clicks his fingers and suddenly you can move your limbs. "There now, let me show you around..."

Humility blinks.

A sinking feeling in her stomach.

"What?"

She looks around, eyes up the gnome for a moment and reaches out her hand for Sin..."ahhh.." and a sudden feeling of loss again. "My cat?" she asks trying to keep the hint of desperation from her voice.

"Safe" offers the gnome continuing as he clamoured down the stepladder "I can reunite you if you'd like."

For the first time since waking a smile breaks Humility's face. She looks about and takes in the scene around her. Waking and not knowing from what was an unsettling experience. She looks down and examines her "working" body.

"That would be very kind of you...."
What is the right term for a diminuative savior/captor/healer, ahh who cares and where are my clothes?"

She sits up and swings her legs around. "What happened to me? The last thing I remember was.... I'm not too sure. Finding Sin? "

Absently a strand of hair makes it into her mouth and she starts to chew it. As she steps down from the table it is a bit of a surprise to find that she doesn't touch the ground.. "What?"

"You'll get used to it, Miss Witch." the gnome says, rising from the ground himself and giving you reason to wonder why he had bothered with the stepladder to begin with. "Let's find her again shall we?"

"Geoff, take us to her armoury please." The world around you shifts rapidly and you somehow understand that you have been teleported.

Atop a pile of treasures, which appear to have been dragged from their positions around the room, stands a familiar looking cat...

Ignoring the gnome, and for a moment the tri-oddity of teleporting, knowing that was what had happened, and not being worried about it; Humility reaches down and scratches Sin behind his ears.

"How are you doing little one?" she asks, bending down to kiss the cat.
"I think he is hungry? Thinking about it...so am I..." she suggests to the gnome.

She looks around, absently turning over some of the items of treasure with her toe as she gives Sin a hug. Out of the corner of her eye she looks around for 'Geoff'.

She turns and kneels, looking the gnome in the eye. "And I'm guessing my thanks to you. I don't even know your name, or how I got here, or even where here is..."

Geoff is nowhere to be seen. But the gnome simply chuckles "I like you better than that pirate girl. Still, I've got to go. When you're done getting your stuff just let Geoff know you're ready to go to the waiting room."

The gnome finishes, steps back and once again addresses open air "Geoff, break room please."

Humility looks around the room some more. Odd things speak to her. Things that she knows are familiar but cannot recognise. Shruggling she wanders around and picks up the various items that 'feel' like they are hers.

She then realises her state of undress. "Oh well Sin, it is not like you have clothes on either.". She quickly dresses, then with an amused look on her face holds tight to Sin and says

"Geoff, Break Room please" Lets hope this doesn't get me into any more trouble. I'd kind of like to know a bit more about this place. Pirates.. they might be problematic."

A deep, smooth but completely even and passionless voice seems to emanate from every point in the room at once.

"I am not supposed to send you to the break room. Please inform me when you are ready to be transported to the waiting room."

"Oh well, so be it. Tell me Geoff, are there any other rooms that you are permitted to take me? And specifically what rooms are you not allowed to send me to? Actually, while we are chatting - who are you?"

"You are scheduled for egress from the waiting room. No other internal transports have been permitted. I am not permitted to transport you to the break room, the circle maintenance room, the Thrallherd's testing chamber, the Thrallherd's armoury, the God's testing chamber, the God's armoury, the Pirate's testing chamber, the Pirate's armoury, the Time Lord's testing chamber, the Time Lord's armoury and the Witch's testing chamber. I am Geoffry... Transporting you now."

All said without a breath.

The scene shifts.

This room is surprisingly different from those you have seen so far. Firstly it is made mostly out of wood, floor, ceiling and walls all. Secondly it is lit by a warm cheery fire sitting in the hearth. Thirdly it contains chairs, well stools, and tables complete with food and drink. One place is noticeably different from the others, appearing to cater to an entirely different physiology.

No different from the previous rooms thin arcane circles have been etched into the wood everywhere.

The room has three occupants. A young man curled up near the fire, apparently engaged in a conversation with the open air and two women, standing back from him observing the situation as you are.

OOCPlease report to the waiting room
