hrm.... Struggling to figure out how to change the character associated with the account, since only a couple of people ever met Kara. But this is Red / Spellfury.

*wave* I realize I kind of vanished a year ago and it's likely no one really remembers any more, but I actually have a bit of time for gaming again and figured I would see what people are up to?

   "Lips as red as wine." Turen repeated to himself. He knew of only one person who could be decribed this way and thought almost made him shiver. He knew it to be Solynari, sister of his beloved Avuna. It was safe to say there first few meetings did not seem to go well. For some reason she did not approve of Avuna and Turen's relationship.

   Turen smiled and continued to gaze from Sokoya into the crowd and back again. He tried to show no expressions of concern although this young drow had no idea the trouble she may be in. He first had to convince her to go inside The Nexus Hall and he needed to get a letter to Avuna. That in itself proved a task as she had not spoken with him since they had taken their journey back to The Church of Tyrilaths grounds.

   "Perhaps we should continue this discussion inside the hall." Turen placed his hand protectively behind the young woman and urged her gently toward the guilds entrance. "We can speak in peace and enjoy some lunch there." Glancing once more toward the street then back to Sokoya, he began to make his way.

Sokoya felt like she had been on her feet for many hours, although in reality it was only a couple, and she longed to rest before her meagre strength failed her.  Silently fuming at the childhood illness that had left her so weak, she nodded at Turen's suggestion and allowed him to shepherd her towards the Nexus guildhall, smiling up at him trustingly.  Jaggie seemed to place much faith in this red-haired man, so she did not fear to go with him - besides, he was practically family.

"I am very much liking this idea, yes sir!" she smiled.  "Your hall, it is having very good foods last time I am being here.  Is mister Kain being at home today, are you thinking?" she babbled on as they walked, remembering that she had not had the chance to play for the big paladin on her last visit.  "He is seeming little bit sad when I am seeing him, so I am thinking perhaps my music is bringing him some joy.  I am knowing many happy musics," she added, patting her lute again as she mentally sifted through her repertoire, wondering what she should play for Ceynn.  The mystery of the picture and the woman who dropped it slipped from her mind again as she pondered matters that were, to her at least, much more important.

   Solynari knew time was of the essence but she dared not come out of her hiding spot. Did she dare to try and move in so she could listen to Turen and Sokoya or does she follow her hated rival? Her decision must come now or least she loose them both. Seeing Turen urge the young drow back towards his guilds hall, the decision was made for her, time to follow her enemy.
 

 

   Sure she could sneak out of her spot; she made her way thru the market and began to follow Aun’Zyne. His hat was easy to see and she kept out site. Rounding a corner, she temporarily lost site of him only to see his bouncing headwear now moving in another direction. Her confidence growing, her pace quickened and much to her surprise as she gained on her quarry, it was not Aun’Zyne! He had tricked her. Glancing in all directions, the drow female cursed herself for waiting to long and began making her way back to her hall where her preparations would begin. Deaths Hunter was now going to be the hunted and she swore this time, he would stay dead.

 

 

  
    Aun’Zyne smiled at himself for the little trick he pulled on his rival. He knew she would be close and would follow him. Watching her curse herself only made him smile more. She appeared more beautiful then he had remembered. He did know that beauty only made her more dangerous.  He knew that now he may have more then one person to get past and the fair skinned elf would prove a dangerous enemy. The rest of the way back to his room at the thieves’ guild, he mind raced with ideas. This task proved a little more difficult then he had imagined……

    Turen followed Sokoya up to the doors of the Crimson Nexus hall. Glancing back towards the market, he sees nothing and continues on. The single guard opens the door as the two enter and greets them both with a smile and a nod. Turen returns the greeting and speaks a few quick words in elven and he guard bows once again.

    Now inside, the hall opens up to a large well lit room full of large chairs and tables. Torches line the walls, spaced evenly apart to provide ample light at even the darkest of hours. The few windows are open and allow more then ample light. Several of the staff mill about making sure everything is in place. Turen speaks a few words to one of the staff and she nods and make her way out the room.

   Turen begins to take a seat and makes motion towards another chair. A second chair is across from him with an end table setup between them. Just as he takes his place, the female staff member returns with various pitchers of juices, hot tea and more food then two people could eat or drink. "Master Turen, I brought a little of everything. If you need anything I will be just a call away." The young girl smiled at them both and went to her duty.

     "Sokoya, would you please take a seat?  We have much to discuss. This picture is not as you assume. Are you aware of what this really is?  Would you like to know whom the woman is that dropped this?" as he holds up the drawing. "There is more to this then meets the eye."

Sokoya followed Turen into the room and settled into the indicated seat, tucking her lute under the chair out of the way.  She made herself comfortable and smiled shyly back at the girl who brought the refreshments.

A small frown creased her brow at Turen's words, and she looked again at the picture of herself. 

"Is just being picture, yes?  For helping someone for finding me?"  She paused, tilting her head at the picture as though trying to see what more there could possibly be, then looked back at Turen. 

"You are knowing pretty lady with red lips, sir?  Is she being cousin Avuna?  Why is she not telling me this?  Is having my name on picture."  Realising she was probably asking too many questions, Suki blushed and fell silent for a moment before adding meekly, "I am very much liking to know what is going on, please."

  Turen sat and listened to all of Sokoya's questions with interest.  This young woman appears to have no idea of what is happening and what is to come. Before saying anything, he pours himself a glass of orange juice and takes a few small sips. After arranging the thoughts in his head, he decides the best way to approach this is be forthcoming but gentle. A smile crosses the elf's face and he lets out a light sigh.

  "Sokoya, the woman who dropped the picture is not Avuna. She is however, a relation to Avuna.  I have met the woman a few times. Her name is Solynari. She does not use her families last name. She is not a person to take lightly. She is in a dangerous and highly skilled profession. Be wary of her should you run across her again."

  The red haired elf takes another drink of his juice and leans forward in his chair before continuing on.

  "The picture is to help someone find you, yes, but not for the reasons you presume. It is, how I say, a portrait for an attempt on your life. Someone has or will pay for harm to come to you. How she came in to posess it I do not know but I will find out.  I don't think Solynari is the assassin but she may know you is. I will do everything I can to find her. I will also contact Avuna and I hope she can perhaps shed some light on this subject. If you wish, I can also speak with Jaggie. That is entirely up to you."

  Turen eases back in his chair and comtemplates further words but decides to study the young drows reaction instead.

Suki nibbled delicately at a piece of fruit as she listened to Turen, her expression showing interest as he talked about Solynari, and she wondered what kind of 'dangerous profession' the woman was engaged in.  She nodded at Turen's warning, then frowned as he continued talking.

She sat quietly for a moment when he finished, thinking through his words.  Her command of the common tongue was good enough that she understood the words, but their true import took a minute to really sink in.  A look of horror spread across her features as she grasped their meaning and she shrank back into her chair, looking at Turen with wide and frightened eyes.

"Someone... is wishing to... to be k-killing me?  But... but I am being nobody... I am not bringing harm to any peoples..."  Her voice rose an octave in fright.  "Wh-who would be wishing this thing?  What am I doing to be deserving of this?!"

  Turen eased forward in his chair again, a look of comfort on his face.

 

  “Do not fear you are in good company I can assure you. The Alliance will not let harm come to any within its fold. We are all brothers and sisters here. Why you were targeted I do not know. I believe the key here is to find Solynari. She will provide the information we need. I will send word to Avuna once you are safely on your back to your guild hall. I will provide a couple of guards to escort you.”

 

  The red haired lets out a sigh and finishes the juice within his glass. Setting it back down, he takes a few slices of cheese and a couple of strawberries. Alternating between the two, he shortly finishes what was in his hand.

 

  “I would recommend you change your plans. Do not do what you normally would each day till I can find some answers. Once I do, I will send word to you. Is here anything else you wish to ask?”

Suki huddled in the chair, her arms wrapped around her trembling body as though she could keep harm at bay that way.  Her amber eyes seemed too big for her delicate face as she stared at Turen, willing herself to trust his assurances. 

After a moment she began to hum softly, a gentle melody that was completely at odds with her nervous manner.  It was an obvious effort for her to concentrate on the tune, but after a few bars she began to visibly relax.  Her hands released their death-grip on her shoulders and folded demurely in her lap, her breathing slowed and her body relaxed.  A couple of moments later she ended the melody and gave Turen a shy smile, clearly much calmer.

"I am thanking you for your advices, mister Turen.  I will be doing as you say, and waiting for your word on this Solynari.  I would very much liking to be meeting cousin Avuna, also, if you are arranging this?"  She stood and smoothed down her dress, bobbing a little curtsey at Turen before reclaiming her lute from beneath the chair.  "I am thinking that my exploring of the Marketplace is over for today, yes?"  She smiled sadly.  "I am finally deciding to be brave and going out alone, and I am finding someone is wishing to be k-killing me..." her voice faltered a little, and she took a deep breath to settle herself again and lifted her chin.  "I am ready for being escorted back, sir."

((Just a brief update, until we can get more detail posted here...

Suki was escorted back to the Fellowship hall without incident.  As soon as she could, she informed Jaggie of what she'd learned from Turen about the contract on her life.  Jaggie would have shared this information with the rest of the Fellowship officers, so they will all know at least what Suki was told here in this thread.  (If anyone would have tried to dig deeper, then please consult Turen about whatever else you may have learned.) 

I'm going to presume that Points' airship trip began within a few days of this, and Suki has slipped aboard the Thastolia with a view to avoiding the assassin for a time.  Turen and I are using this as an excuse (with Points' permission) to give him time to investigate the matter and contact Avuna and Solynari, whilst Suki is out of danger.

And besides, Turen did tell Suki not to stick to her usual routine...  hopping aboard a strange airship uninvited is not usual for her.  ))
