Nanai had to be rather..., intrigued by the turn of events.  She had never even thought that she would share with anyone.  Living at the Temple of the Radiant Light had taught her that you had a station in life and a place, and no physical nor relational thing should ever come between you and your station.

In a lot of ways, she felt pressed, and repressed.  It was hard to talk to anyone, most of the clerics and priests were at least twice her age, and that was just the humans.  She did seem to fit in, but daily she seemed to question why she was held so tightly.  She almost felt trapped, bound by unseen chains in a prison of duty and honor.

But last night had changed that.  That delightful woman, Jeatra I believe she said her name was.  Something about her.  The smile, the delightful attitude, her warming smile.  There was something that resonated deep inside herself, something that identified with that small halfling.  In Jeatra, she saw everything that she was unable to be herself, and then felt odd, as a sense of sudden self loathing came over her.  She wished to be more, and the chains of her duty felt even heavier.

That was, until she got back to the Temple.

Nanai almost as soon as she entered the grounds was escorted to a special chamber.  There she waited, quite some time by her reckoning.  After a signifigant amount of time, The High priest as well as a pair of the Templar paladins came into the room, in full regalia.  Nanai was a bit alarmed at this point, but stood and bowed respectfully.

The high priest only stopped long enough to catch a breath, before he spoke.  "Nanai, you have always been a beloved daughter of the Temple of the Radiant Light.  However, after some recent events that have come to our attention, we feel that you lack the proper devotion and..., proper conduct required to be a paladin in our temple.  It is the decision of the Priests that you are stripped of your title of paladin, and forthwith expelled from the order and the grounds.  The Templars will escort you to the chambers to collect any personal belongings that you have, and then they will escort you off the grounds.  If you are ever found here again, you will be tried to the fullest extent as a heretic of the order."

With that, the high priest turned and left.  One of the templar took her by the arm, and forcefully escorted her to her room.  Nanai was in a daze.  She had no idea what had happened, nor why.  Her day had swung from the best she had ever had, to now she had nowhere to go, no place to live.

In a muted silence, she gathered her things, and was escorted off the grounds.  She did the only thing she could do..., head to the city, and pray.

Her head felt funny.  The world kept spinning, and it made it quite hard for her to walk straight.

She felt a sense of accomplishment that she left the bottle and mug intact for the delightful warforged bartender.  That wine was rather strong, and she wasn't sure, but she was sure she had to be somewhere.  She carefully made her way out.

She started to head to the gates of the city, to make her way back to the temple, and that is when it hit her.  She couldn't go back.  She wasn't sure how she had forgotten that fact, but it was now in front of her.

She stood in the alley by the Phoenix, trying to decide what to do.  Then she realized she had no where to stay.  With rain coming in, that didn't bode well.  She looked about, and noticed a bridge that could shield her from the rain, so she stumbled over to it.

She sat down to think about things, and flopped down to her back, looking up at the sky.  Wow, she thought, the stars are nice tonight.

And that was her last conscious thought.

Nanai bolted out the door of the Phoenix.  She had never felt more emotionally bare and embarrassed in her whole life.  She was completely mortified about what happened, but the one thing she couldn't shake, was the growing feeling of consuming shame.

She couldn't think of a reason why she should be ashamed, but the more and more events ran through her head, the more shame that took her.  After everyone left, she went back inside, grabbed the bottle of wine she had started, and took it out with her.

Looking about, she ran back to the bridge, the one she stopped at the night before, and huddled up under it, trying to hide.  No one seemed to pass by this way, and with the rain coming in again, she would be safe here.

With the sounds of thunder rumbling, Nanai looked up, then took the bottle and drank more.  It was the only thing she could think of, drown out the shame, the embarrassment.  Her emotions, and even her world she felt, was crashing in around her, and she felt powerless to do anything about it.  She sobbed, her tears mixing with wine staining her dress.  She was glad that the thunder was rolling, as it covered her sobbing.

With that she finished her wind, shrunk into the cold wet stone of the bridge, and collapsed into a convulsive and restless sleep.

Splashing through puddles like a carefree child, Rrula paused on her way back to the guildhall and peered at the shadow under the bridge.  She was there again - at least, it looked like the same woman.  The halfling quietly moved closer to get a better look, and sighed as she noted the empty bottle nearby.  Turning away, she headed into the guildhall.

A short while later, she returned with a blanket and a large mug of hot tea.  Setting the tea in a dry spot under the bridge, she placed the blanket over the woman and nudged her gently.  "Hey, kid... there's drier places ya could be sleepin'..."

Rrula tucked herself up onto a dry rock, cradled the mug in her hands to keep them warm, and waited for the woman to wake, wondering if she was drunk enough to sleep through 'til morning.

Nanei tossed and turned, fitfully fighting with a sleep filled with nightmares.  They blurred past her conscious mind, one at a time, none of them memorable, but all of them terrifying her to the core.  she couldn't pull her self to sleep.

Then she caught a dream, a real dream.  Or at least, she thought it a dream.  The scent of tea, the warmth of a blanket, so nice.  She tried to pull herself up, but faltered, her body lacking strength for some odd reason.  She feebly slid towards the scent, doing her best to get closer, maybe even quench her thirst.

She tried to form words, but they couldn't come.  Stormreach..., the city she is in.  Bridge..., she went there..., but why?  So tired, can't think.  She continued to crawl impotently, until she couldn't move anymore, opening her mouth.

Rrula watched Nanai curiously.  What was going through the woman's mind?  Was she merely drunk, or suffering from some kind of illness?

When she stopped moving the halfling shrugged and knelt beside her, applying a small burst of healing magic via her Dragonmark in the hope that it might help the stranger recover her senses.  Tipping up Nanai's chin, Rrula held the mug to her lips and poured a little tea down her throat, careful not to give her too much at once.

"Here ya go, try ter drink this... it might help a bit, y'know?"

Nanai felt strange.  She heard words, although she couldn't make them out.  They were comforting, warm and friendly.  They washed over her like a hug, covering her with warmth.

Then the tea that she smelled.  It started to flow into her mouth, hot and tasty.  She gulped reflexively,  the warm liquid making it inside her, coating her throat and stomach with a warm feeling.  She felt so much better.

Her vision started to clear, her thoughts less cloudy.  Her eyes began to focus more.  A woman, halfling, tipping a cup to her lips, giving her tea.  The bridge, the one she was hiding under, staying dry.  A blanket, covering her.

As the tea made it into her, she found some strength, enough to try and sit up more, slipping hands up to grab the mug.  Her head clearing, realizing that this was not a dream.  She took the tea in gulps now, wanting more and more.

When the tea was finally gone, she slumped up against the bridge, spent, but feeling warm inside, staring out at the halfling.

Rrula kept one hand on the mug of tea to steady it as the woman drank, making sure she didn't spill the liquid over herself.  "Steady now, it's hot..."

Reclaiming the mug from Nanai's grasp when she was done, Roo set it to one side and tucked the blanket more firmly around her.  She sat back, her hazel eyes serious as she studied Nanai.  After a couple of moments, she gave the silent woman a small smile.

"So... ya feel like tellin' anyone why yer sleepin' under a bridge with only a bottle fer company?"  She pauses before adding, "I ain't here ter tell ya how ter live yer life, kid, but I c'n tell ya whatever yer tryin' ter block out, the booze ain't gonna help ya."

Nanai looked up at the halfling.  She knew she was speaking, but couldnt make out any words.  She tried, tried very hard to be able to understand, but her ears didn't seem to work.

After a few moments, she gave up trying, instead sliding herself carefully over to her, and leaning herself up again Roo.  She felt comfortable, she felt safe.  She felt like, the home she wanted.  She knew this wasn't her answer, but it was something she wanted.

"I..., don't know why..., kicked me out..., temple not my home..." Nanai rambled on.  She seemed to be scattered and muttering aimlessly.  "Stay..., please?"

She looked up, hoping that this person, this safe and warm person would stay till she could get up and do something.

Rrula watched the stranger, wishing she could read her thoughts, as she waited for her to speak.  She began to wonder if perhaps Nanai was deaf, and thought about going back to the hall for something to write on.  She was about to excuse herself when the woman slid over and pressed up against her, and Roo's shoulders stiffened at the unexpected contact as she wondered again what in Khyber was going through Nanai's mind.

On the verge of pushing her away, Roo relented at the words Nanai muttered.  "Kicked out, huh?  That ain't nice."  She reached around Nanai to pat her shoulder awkwardly.  "I s'pose I c'n stay fer a bit, but it'd be better ter get ya inside where it's warmer.  Think ya c'n move?"  She watched Nanai's face carefully, trying to gauge whether or not the woman was understanding a word she said.
