Feeling after feeling swept over the mage catching her in a tidal wave that she had not expected. Sure she knew what it was to feel and how someone could get caught up in a moment but it was no ordinary moment she was living in. Every fiber of her being was telling her she was right where she was meant to be, that there would never be regret, that she found what she never even knew she was looking for. Losing herself in Kains kiss, in his arms she was dazed when he pulled away from her and threatened her jokingly about finding her in the after life. For a second she had no idea what he was talking about, her senses had left her the instant his lips touched hers with such need and emotion she felt she was on fire and that fire was all consuming, but then she remembered and her eyes went wide first at the realization that Kain had actually made light of a dark situation, surely the world was coming to an end if Kain was now joking, either that or she had succeeded faster than she thought she might in cracking the wall he had built around himself. Then she remembered what she was planning to do and somehow the task ahead, did not seem as grim or daunting. She was filled with a new confidence, one she had been missing before and now she was more certain than ever that she, that they would previal. Leaning over she kissed his cheek and brushed his hair back from his eyes.
Well then there will be no going to the afterlife for me because I'll be damned if your going to follow and hunt me down, though it might be interesting to see just what you would do if you did find me.
Taking herself from his arms she turned to go to the pool again and nearly jumped from her skin, her brother stood in the archway accompanied by Condrik, but Condrik really was of no concern to her at the moment, Gabriel on the other hand, was exactly who she needed even if he was looking at her all wrong through, his eyes narrowed to mere slits, she quickly turned her head away unable to look him in the eyes, not wanting to see what might lay behind them. Clearing her throat she spoke but would not look anywhere but the pool.
She is not being held anywhere on this world, its more like a void, another plain so to speak, whoever put her there, is strong, I've said it before I know, but no simple portal will bring any of us to her, or her to us. I've looked and thought and the only thing I can come up with is going to her through the pool. If I was able to cast a spell to see her like we do now, I can do the same to allow entrance into the plain. The problem with that is, if I can get there, that means whatever is there can get here, and that whatever might not be myself or Raynalia. Whoever is behind this, may possess powers to reach any of you here. I will of course do my best to ward the room properly but until I know fully what or who I am dealing with I cannot say with full confidence that any of you will be safe. Another point I must bring up, I will be able to spell cast from the void, essentially it will be like I am in two places at one though my body will be in the void my mind will be here and there. I dont know how to word it so that you can grasp what I am attempting here, but I dont see any other way.
Gabriel... I know I have no right to ask anything of you, I know you want to see Raynalia safe, but please if you care for me at all, if all your love for me has not gone, please leave my tower, Condrik can take you the council room of the elite, that is the most warded room of the hall save for my tower and I do not want to risk what happened to Kristian happening to you...
Finally she turned her head and stared at her brother.
I am sorry Gabriel and if this is the last we may see of one another as much as you have heard it before I need you to hear it one last time... you are my brother I love you and I never meant to hurt you. I will right the wrong Gabriel.
The time was drawing near, there was no time to see Kiara or to see any of the others, no time to see Guidion, to let him be free and she found herself being free, no time to tell him how much he meant to her and how much she was grateful for him. There was only time for those in the room with her now. she might have been sure of herself but the unknown always managed to happen and she had to be prepared incase the worst of the unknown came to pass.
Kain... sit near the fire and remember your promise. No matter what you see, what you think is happening, do not try and stop it.
She wouldnt be able to start until the others were gone from the tower, but she hesitated in asking them to leave, she had to see if maybe just maybe Gabriel could find it in his heart to forgive her.
