  1. He gently took one of her hands and drew her close, his arms settling around her hips so that he held her semi close, but this time she would have to hurt him in order to escape this embrace. “I've never seen you give up, even when you were taken from me. Sure, you're tired, but you haven't lost yet. And I'm not going to stand by and let you give up either.” He said as he looked into those saddened eyes, gently stroking his fingers across her lower back.
  2. “Well, the first thing we do is work on yourself control again. And figuring out an alternative to human blood. Have you even tried any of the animals... well, actually, are there any animals around here?” That was actually the first thing to figure out, were there any alternatives to this? He then reached forward and he pressed his warm fingers to her cheek, a simple caress, but meant to let her know he wasn't going to walk away just because of this. If she were redeemable, he was going to the gates of hell and beyond to help her if he had to. That determination would have been more than evident in his eyes. “You need to stop and take a breath. Rage, right now, is not going to help us.” He thought about his words and then shook his head with a chuckle. “Listen to me, I sound like you did, all those times you wanted me to think clearly and not with other parts of my anatomy...”
  3. Quick summary: Galen and Aku were asked to investigate the disappearance of a local shopkeeper, Osiris Noworthy. In their preparations they met and befriended [putting it mildly] a lonely lizard woman simply known as Kirin. The actual task seemed to be a cake walk, as there was no resistance in rescuing the Feline Shopkeeper. But something is wrong... Full Summary: PeaceKeeper Worth found the twin souls, Galen and Aku, in the hotel room that was part of their reward for their previous work for him. This brought them back to work for him as he needed a feline male shopkeeper found. Osiris Noworthy had filed a burglary report about several rare items being stolen from his place of business, and then had vanished. This was several days ago and now the PeaceKeeper was worried, though he refused to actually say why he was involving himself in this or what his worry was. On his referral though, the pair inhabiting one body came to a store owned by a blind albino lizard woman by the name of Kirin. It was immediately obvious she was a powerful psychic, easily able to anticipate whatever was being said or done. After their first foray to find the shopkeeper, it became obvious that the lizard woman and twin souls were fast becoming more than just passing acquaintances. When the actual job of getting to Osiris was finally undertaken, the den discovered the first time is found empty, protected only by illusions. The shopkeeper is found under a drug and seemingly poisoned, but alive, and Galen is quickly able to reverse this, or at least, is made to believe he did, but Galen has his doubts, now about this. Payment shall be listed as Other. Possible Quests: There are several Naga and a Drider, a half human half spider creature, hiding in the city, the Police force is very interested in locating them. Osiris Noworthy is acting strange since his captivity, but is it PTSD or has he been altered in some fashion by his captors? Galen has a set of crystals that need to be investigated. They contain what should be a poison and a truth serum, but both crystals are the same exact color. Galen now has suspicions about this and about Osiris. [Both of the last two quests may be combined for one quest, or run separately.] If you need help with the stories, I'm willing to help or even partner with others for them.
  4. It was a couple days later, and Galen looked haggard, to be polite. He had been worked over very thoroughly the last couple of days, and not all of it had been the nicest of experiences, though he wouldn't dare complain. At least she hadn't neutered him. He shook his head and drank down the chilled glass of water in a couple of gulps before refilling it and doing the same again. “Anyway, I have my doubts, now, about Osiris, and our being able to rescue him so easily.” Wirth was sitting across from him, and he was nursing a relaxing drink. “I have to admit, some of the things making their way to me makes me wonder as well. Though we have no actual physical or magical proof yet, we think the Naga are getting in and out of the store undetected now. What we do have is missing wares that had been there the day before hand and none of it passes seen out of the front door with a proper buyer. He's ordered more of the rare items he reported missing through normal channels, in larger quantities, but we can't stop the process of them getting to him, since we have no proof of any wrong doing...” Galen remembered the substances he'd pulled from the bite mark on the feline's neck, and resolved he would need to have that properly analyzed. “Oh, and don't forget that thing he described, a drider I think he called it. Something like that, capable of altering the potency of serums and poisons specifically for the intended victim? That's a dangerous thing to have running around.” “True, but we only have his word for that, and that word is shaky right now. No one else has reported seeing anything like it here in the city. Not that I'll ignore it for false, just, hard to task anyone to look into it officially.” “Yes well, you'll have to find someone else for anything in the immediate future, I'm kinda, sorta...” and the rest was lost to mumbling. “I'm sorry, didn't catch that last part, why can't the PeaceKeeper assigned to this town depend on your abilities when the need arises?” Galen gave the seemingly innocent and sincere face a cold stare, mentally taking back the nice things he'd said about the man since the hospital. “I said, Kirin's grounded us until she's sure I won't lie to her like that again.” The man didn't laugh, he was too much the professional for that, but he did cough, then take a drink. Giving a sage nod, he finally said, “I see, well, I think I can probably be without your services for a short time. Why is Aku grounded?” “What?” “You said we were grounded. This implies she is as well, and I'm just a little curious as to why she would be as well, if it was only you that lied.” “Aiding and abetting. She knew I could lie even to a skilled telepath, and did not tell or hint this to Kirin.” “Hmm... tough break, my friend,” This said without a hint of sympathy as he finished his drink and stood, making to leave the restaurant, “I wish you both the best of luck with her.” “Why don't you come and visit?” “And have her think I'm trying to effect a rescue?” “Damn...”
  5. Waiting at the perimeter of the lot was the constables he'd asked for, but he felt really foolish now for having sent for them. We never expected them to completely abandon the place... That was the truth of the matter. Everything indicated there was a snake pit here full of Naga. He spotted a familiar face further along the alleyway, and sighed, walking down it to meet up with PeaceKeeper Wirth. “So, job well done and all, though this is going to be a right mess to clean up, you know.” “We know, but at least Osiris is alive and well.” “This is very true,” and Keeper Wirth seemed very relieved at that. “So, how shall we settle accounts this time?” Galen had been about to say something when a flash of opalescent white scales caught his attention at the entrance of the alleyway. She was tapping her foot, and she knew that he was trapped. “Umm... I think I could do with some really thick armor about now... or at least a solid cup... and maybe a head start...” The PeaceKeeper turned to look at what Galen was suddenly afraid of and then made a low whistling sound, “And she is pissed. What'd you do?” “I lied to her face.” “Wow. Now that takes some balls, which she's probably going to lop off and let you watch her eat them, I should tell you.” “I know, which is why I thought you might be willing to help me out...” “And have her even think I'm aiding and abetting you in your escape? Are you insane?” Galen looked sidelong at the PeaceKeeper and then back at what he'd survived and then back at the reptilian woman who was still impatiently tapping her foot. “Yeah, good point, but still, sorry, you have to deal with her on your own.” “Yeah, I know... but I thought I would ask. You might arrange a bed for me at the hospital,” Galen said in a resigned tone as he hesitantly made his way towards the irate female that was awaiting his arrival. “If she doesn't dispose of the body herself, you mean?” Galen groaned, having been trying to avoid that thought. When he got close, Galen was surprised to find himself suddenly jumped, a pair of clawed feet landing firmly in his gut while her clawed fingers dug into his cloak. And then further surprised when she pushed her snout into the cloak and kissed him deeply. Having been prepared for evisceration, this was very much appreciated. And then she leaned away from him, hauled a fist way back and clocked him one with every ounce of her wiry body strength and weight, which, though they might not be a lot on their own, it was enough to stagger him in combination. “You ever lie to me like this again and I will hunt you down and string you up by your entrails and let you watch me eat your heart! Do you understand me Galen and Aku?!” she screamed, garnering the attention of everyone in earshot. Yes, Ma'am. “Yes, Ma'am.” came the subdued and properly chastised responses at the same time. “Now, you will carry me home and then you are both going to spend a good deal of the next few days apologizing to me.” Yes, Ma'am. “Yes, Ma'am.” On the one hand, they were elated about the idea, on the other, the order filled them with dread.
  6. “I cheated death!” he frowned as he heard those words, and immediately he was going to side with her, but then the analytical part of his mind kicked in, the engineer that always got involved when he was trying to figure out how to get a job done, no matter what the job was. He suppressed a snort as he remembered how that had pissed her off to no end when it was her that he thought of as a job. But gears ground, working slowly on her words. She was upset, and just as when he was, that tended to hide doors that might lead to simple answers. “So, it was your intention all along to leave me and our fight behind?” He remained sitting there, watching her as she fumed and raged without moving an inch. He was taking a gamble, and it could go as horribly wrong as it could go right, so he might as well roll the dice and see what lady luck had in store for him. “You don't look like this was your plan, so I'm thinking there is still a little room for wiggle.”
  7. Tathom's mind refused to settle immediately after what they had witnessed, but he'd seen two of the Rangers slip into the woods beyond their tent, and figured they were either being watched, or this display worried even Bronthor. He had settled to his back, and pulled Akane so that she rested against the length of his side, partly to feel her close still, but also to help pin him down. If he didn't have at least that gentle pressure to him, he might end up rolling this way and that trying to chase sleep down. Instead he made her a part of his mind calming. It started with his fingers pressing just firm enough to press against her muscles, but not hard enough to hurt, small circles with those fingers as they pressed, the hand of the side that she was on working its way slowly from the base of the neck along the length of her spine to the base of her tail. Then he worked back upwards. In the back of his mind, he set the energy siphon and recharging of her stores on a sort of auto pilot, a little more than a trickle, but less than the surge of energy he'd been using. His mind wandered, so he let it, though he pushed it forcefully away from the clouds and the metal birds, not needing to wake up the engineer in him about how it was possible. He also didn't start thinking about the task of training that would likely start in the morning. There wasn't a need for any of that right now. Instead he turned to another calming ritual. In his mind's eye, he remembered his paragliding training once. But he erased the feeling the pull of the harness as he rested in it, and settled for the feeling of flying through the air. Closing his eyes, he tried to focus on something from the air, and it took a while before his mind settled on something, and there he was above a forest gliding on silent wings. He didn't try to focus on the flying itself, only on the ride. The focus constantly shifted along the ground, sharp eyes picking out every detail as he soared, for he was looking for something, something he needed to have. His body stilled itself and relaxed into a dreamlike state, though the essence recharge continued even now, there was slightly less of it than a moment ago, being absorbed by him, but not to recharge himself, it was being used immediately. Though the purpose wasn't immediately obvious.
  8. “And what grievous sins have you committed since we parted?” He couldn't figure out why he was calm about any of this. But, as he thought about it, she was a right mess right now, and they both couldn't be a mess and hope to figure things out. So, as was his usual want, ladies first. “You don't have to stand away from me. I've accepted that things need to be worked out.” and he banged his fist on the back quarter panel, and the engine began laboring. A few moments it was fine,then it coughed and rattled, then chugged fine, before finally silencing itself. With the gat empty anyway, it wasn't going to do any good to let the fuel run dry.
  9. It was nearly the middle of the night, the perfect time for traveling when one didn't want to meet other travelers on the path. Of course, the chance encounter with something supernatural shot up a greater percentage, but that was sort of the price to be paid. But, tonight seemed to be a rare lull in the otherworldly experiences, nothing glowing or slithering or flying being spotted in the travels through this section of the woods. Except, this sort of thing should have pointed towards an entirely different problem, if one was experienced in such things, which not all were. The light flickered through the woods, seeming to grow brighter as it came from the tops of the trees and falling downward, the brightness increasing exponentially, as if it were falling fast from the sky towards the ground. Naturally, this would garner attention and probably entice a soul to come and look. After all, if this really was a piece of the sky that had fallen, would it not be a valuable thing to share or possess? And it would draw the attention and pursuit deep into the woods, well away from any path, and, somehow, not a straight line. But this weaving through the woods was subtle, something very hard to recognize if one wasn't absolutely sure of their sense of direction. It was close, had to be close, it was so bright now... And then a chance stumbling across a white coated fox, just sitting in the middle of the not quite a path, but still in the way. It didn't move to intercept or block, it just sat there, watching with irises that seemed to glow like the sun in midday, despite the light being behind it. And this light did not explain the glow that emanated from the fox's coat. Sitting at just over two foot tall at the shoulder, if it stood and walked, it would probably be about four foot in body length, with a luxurious white tail again as long as the length of its body. The tail and three of the four paws were dipped in a black that absorbed the glow the rest of its fur had. The only really odd thing was the deep red of the front right paw, more of a sock then the others, reaching halfway to its foreleg elbow. It simply sat there and watched closely for a moment, and was probably going to be given a wide birth, so that pursuit of the fallen heavens could be taken up again. “You need to be careful, if you intend to go further,” it was a gentle woman's voice, and if attention had been taken from the fox, it could easily have been a figment of the imagination, but if it was watched as it was being bypassed, the muzzle would have been seen to move slightly, as if the words came directly from the fox itself. @Kind_Of_A_Rarity
  10. Though it does not affect a village, many a traveler has reported coming across a strange light while traversing a particular part of the woods. This light appears to fall from the heavens for each of the travelers that crosses its path. But, when investigating, the light disappears, seeming to leave them lost. They happen to be excellent woodsmen, but there is no telling how many less than their experienced has traveled that path and not been heard form again. Some solace is found in the report that some travel this path with no encounter, but it only serves to make this phenomenon more of a mystery.
  11. yeah, but they always wait until you're at your most needful.
  12. He laughed softly, trying to picture himself on a horse, “Even after you talked me into riding that one supposedly safe horse that tried to kill me by rolling over while I was on its back?” He shook his head, trying not to picture that scene or remember the pain again. “I still think that was a setup...” he grumbled, spinning the wheel hard to kick the rear end loose while putting the gas pedal to the floor just as they reached the highway. It was still early enough that traffic was going to be light, so he wasn't worried about what might be on the road as he hit the pavement nearly perpendicular to the intended direction of travel. And he was casual about it, uncaring that vehicles didn't tend to travel sideways, let alone down a well traveled road. He just kept his eyes on where he was and where he was going, and let his reflexes take care of the rest. “Still won't go near that farm, too many crazy animals on it,” even as he realized they were traveling by one of the entrances as the car straightened out and got down to the serious business of closing in on their destination. He too thought about the clinic, absently, but it was more about whether he should find a way of leveling the place once and for all, for all the trouble it kept causing him, even after the time that had passed.

    The Avatar was a nice find on the interwebs that I nabbed... The sig I put together on my own.

      How are things in your neck of the woods? How early or late is it? can I ask some obscure questions to see if I can guess how far away you live? And if you told me already, don't worry, I can't remember anything beyond dinner last night.
