Araceli Naeva HazesunEven though she was both physically and mentally exhausted Araceli slept poorly. Again and again she revisited the fight in her dreams and asked herself how things would have gone if she had acted differently. The questions tormented her and without Twiggles she didn't have anything to calm her down, leading to a night full of tossing and turning.

It was the sound of voices quietly talking that finally woke her from her restless slumber. Tousled the young mage sat up and rubbed the sleep from her eyes. Something was not right, even in her drowsy state she could feel the tension in the air. After clumsily crawling out of her bedroll she slowly made her way over to the rest of the group who was gathered around Ealirel.

"What's going on, is everything alright?" Her voice was still a little hoarse from having just woken up. One look at the elf seemed to answer her question though. Araceli did not know a lot about medicine but even she could see that their friend's condition had worsend dramatically. As the realisation hit her she immediatly became much more awake, her face pale as she looked at her companions with fear. "What is wrong, what happend? We... we need to do something. Lily, can you do something? You can do something, right? You can help her, right?" Tears welled up in her eyes again. "Or Amy? You can pray to Evelyn, right? Evelyn is merciful, she can help Ealirel. Or maybe we go back and talk to the old man again..."

The more she talked the faster her words became as the panic took over more and more.

A frown crossed Creepy's face as she carefully watched Ealirel. She knew the end was near. Death was here to take it's prize. She looked over at Araceli and shook her head.

"I'm sorry but there is nothing me and Mother can do. This is beyond my abilities. Death is already here and it's waiting for her."

Creepy looked back down at Ealirel and silently sighed. Thinking to her self Creepy, in an hesitant 'voice' askes with her inner voice....

Evelyn, if you can hear me....is there some way we can help Ealirel? Me and Mother don't trust those friendly people. Hearts? And then two days? Lies. I just want to help Ealirel. O.K.?

Sasori
left-aligned image

Exhaustion, self-doubt, hopelessness ... these were painfully evident within the formidable Paladin of Evelyn. Sasori empathized for her. She had been struck by the same shadow demons, after all. She may be suffering from the same affliction. Perhaps not so evident now, but whereas Ealirelís condition worsened rapidly, what if it only took a little longer for Amy?

Already, their erstwhile guide was dying on the ground. More than just their guide - she had fought with them, defended them against so many threats they had encountered. She deserves better than this, he said as he looked back at the sick Elf. You both do, he continued as he returned his gaze to Amy. While it may be his charge, his purpose, to guide this group to their final destination, that was only upon reaching his homeland. His duty was to get them there, but to accomplish that they needed their guide in this land. Alive.

The necessary course of action was obvious, to Sasori. There was only one choice, really. But Amy was hesitant, reluctant. The burden of leadership was a demanding responsibility, and not something he envied nor desired. How could he reassure her of her faith? To take up the conviction of what must be done?

The group at the Temple, maybe they can stabilize her, until the cure is ready.
He looked again at the Elf, and foresaw what would happen if they did nothing. He saw her death, just as vividly as the trees that surrounded them or the ground beneath their feet. He foresaw Ealirel suffering horribly, but only, it would not end this time with just the one death. He did not look at Amy, instead he continued to gaze upon the worsening form of Ealirel, but when he spoke it was directly to the Paladin: Look to your heart, Amelia. What does it tell you?

Two companions pleaded with Amy. Sasori used calm, yet heartfelt appeals. Then there was the desperate, crying face of Araceli. The mere sight of that was like a dagger through Amy's heart. She could hardly stand to look at her dearest friend. The paladin deliberately focused on Sasori instead.

"My heart tells me that it's already too late. The damage has been done. We were never supposed to be near this temple. Ealirel insisted that we come here. That mistake doomed her...

...and possibly me as well.
"

A quiver of fear crossed Amy's features. For all her stoicism, she was still human. She didn't want to die. She also didn't want the whole group to be dragged down along with her. Another glance to Araceli betrayed that wish.

"Ealirel felt that we had 'no choice' but to take a foolish risk. Now you feel that we must gamble even more, in order to recoup our losses. What happens when this decision inevitably hurts someone else? How many of us must fall before you accept reality?"

Berry sighed and dipped into his pouch for a pipe and pouch of leaf. Packing the bowl carefully, he sparked life into the leaf, issuing billowy clouds of sweet-smelling, grey smoke. Once thus settled, he then produced a small block of wood and small, sharp knife. Settling against a nearby tree, he occupied himself by deftly whisking the blade over the wood, sending shavings flying as the wood transformed from a rectangular block to something more smoothly shaped, gradually becoming increasingly identifiable as the beginnings of a cluster of leaves and berries.

It had been awhile since he'd had the chance to whittle, and he'd missed it in the times when he wasn't busy with more important tasks like surviving. As he busied his hands, puffing peacefully on his pipe, his eyes occasionally flickered from his woodworking to the prone elf lying on the ground as the others debated her fate above her. He had no wish for the elf to die. He had no wish for many people to die, but they did. And it seemed that the elf they'd saved would now be lost to them as well. The ranger was well-acquainted with the Circle of Life, and equally well-acquainted with violent ends.

He'd hoped a decision would be made quickly, but it seemed that, as was common with humans, sides had been chosen, and the matter would be debated until the point were moot. Berry was content either way: he didn't trust the so-called "Brotherhood" inside, and he certainly didn't fancy looting a dwarven tomb, but there was danger no matter where they went, and disturbing the dead to provide life seemed a fair trade to him. They could always find a dwarven priest later, if it mattered that much.

With a sigh, and another puff from his pipe, Berry glanced up at Sasori and Amy. "Why not let fate decide?" he asked around the stem of his pipe. "Simply flip a coin. Heads, we go back in and do what we can to save Ealirel. Tails, and we honor her with the respect of another fallen comrade."

Creepy suddenly stands up and folds her arms across her chest. Her lips form a pout on them. She stamps her foot.

"Well, I'm not going." She points towards the direction that they where originally heading towards and again folds her arms across her chest.

"Evelyn gave me vision and a quest. Get a gem from a cat and stick it in an giant eye. Save lots of people. It's a battle between Evelyn and the giant cat. The steaks? The very existence of her people. Have we forgotten this?"

She stamps her foot again and lets out a loud huffing sound.

Araceli Naeva Hazesun„What are you all talking about?“ Araceli looked completly aghast at her companions. „We are loosing time. Ealirel is our friend, we can just give up on her like this. If there is any chance that we can safe her then we need to try. She is a part of this mission as well, she has risked her life for us even though she didn’t have to. Don’t we own her to at least try to help her?“ Tears are still streaming down her face as she pleaded, desperatly hoping that the others would listen to her. How could they talk about their friend’s life like this? She deserved help.

The young woman foced her eyes on Amy. „Please Amy. We need to try.“
