Bubblesrk: Walks up the path and knocks on the door.
Quote:
Hearing a knock at the door she excuses herself and goes to get it. She smiles
when she sees it’s Bubbles. “Hi, come in. Rexx is here too.” She says with a
smile and opens the door more so she can enter.
Quote:
Bubblesrk: Hi’ hugs Arail and walks in and she sees Rexx and a cat by the
table. What is your cats name?
Quote:
Looking in the kitchen she sees Kitty sleeping near the table. “Her name is
Kitty.” She tells Bubbles.
“Hey, Rexx, Bubbles is here. You have met in the tavern a couple of times.”
she says looking at Rexx.
Turning towards Bubbles shes says “Sit down Bubbles. How have you been?
Field is ok? Did you say you are thinking about moving back to Shrewsbury?”
she asked as Bubbles sits down.
Quote:

Just waiting for them to be ready,” she tells Bubbles.

Luke walks up the path and knocks on the door.”Hello ,I’ve heard some rumors
around town about a ball being on…I just so happens that I got a mask.”laughs
Quote:
Bubblesrk: Yeah iam saveing up to get a shirt i the it is being made right now

When she sees the pie she smiles and gives Bubbles a hug. “Thanks, you didn’t
have to do that though. Do you guys want some right now?” She asks them
both.

Laughs a little and says “Yes everyone loves you here. Well, ok then it was
nice talking with you.” She says and walks Bubbles to the door.
When they get to the door she hugs Bubbles and watches her leave. After she is
gone she puts the pie on the kitchen table and sits back down next to Rexx.
“Want any pie? If you do it’s in the kitchen. If you want anything to drink or eat
just let me know.” She tells Rexx.
After that she is said she thinks back and thought that there might have been someone at the door.
Walking to the door she sees United. “Oh hi there how long have you been out
here? Haven’t been waiting long I hope. You heard about the ball?” she asks
and then adds with a little laugh. “I dont think that mask will be right to wear to
the ball. Might scare everyone off. Want to come in and talk? Rexx is here.”
Quote:
United_We_Stand: Smiles evilly”Well then i may just take that mask”
looks thoughtful
“Don’t Think I’ve met Rexx before…”
Quote:
“No. Probably not. I am very hard too meet.” Smiles and stands up, giving a
short bow to bubbles, he extends a hand to United. Onlt just noticing the cat.
“When did you get a cat?” He askes, turning his head to Arial, but with his
hand still infront of him.
Quote:
Smiles at them and says “This is Rexx, Rexx this is United. Rexx and I are
going to be getting married soon.” Then hears Rexx ask about her cat. “Oh,
Kitty? Someone found her outside there house, and asked if I wanted her. I said
sure. I needed some company. I was getting pretty lonely here all by myself,”
she says.
Quote:
United_we_stand: Bows to Rexx, smiling”Congratulations on your
forthcoming Marriage. I found an abandoned fox at my cave the other day, I’ve
decided to take it in and look after it.”
Quote:
“Sorry Arial.” Rexx said, looking a little guitly at her. Smiling at United, he
walked back into the living room and sat back down, where he was quickly
joined by the small cat, which gave him a little look at curled up.

Quote:
Smiles and says “It’s ok I am not lonely anymore,” Then turns to United and
says. “You found a baby fox? That’s nice of you to take it in.” Then heads back
to the living room with Rexx and tells United to come too.

United_we_stand: smiles and walks into the living room hwere rexx and Arail
are.”Well, I hope the fox could work as a gaurd dog later perhaps.”
[quote] Smirks and then hold his tounge as he catchs Arial’s eye. “As long as it knows
that your not an enemy eh?” Rexx said whislt smiling.[/quotes]
Quote:
United_we_stand: “Well, of course he’ll know.”looks very certain of himself” If
he doesn’t work out as a gaurd dog then I”ll train him as a dog to sniff out black
truffles, those are rather pricey”
Quote:
Smiles at United and eyes Rexx. “Well I have Kitty to protect me,” she says
with a smile and then sits down next to Rexx.
Quote:
United_we_stand: “Yes I’m sure she’d do her best to help you”Looks deadly
serious for a few seconds
Quote:
Rexx: Looks at United and chuckles a little. “Well of course, if not then i’ll
have to, won’t i?” He said smiling and then looked down at the cat, which was
now playing with peices of string on his shirt.
Quote:
United_we_stand: “You’ll soon have enough trouble looking after arial, the
people in some of our taverns are rather crazy.”looks innocent.”By that i don’t
mean me.Mostly hopesfall”laughs

Quote:

Laughs at United. “You may not be as bad as him, but you are pretty bad. Like
last night when you tried to get everyone drunk.” She says and then looks at
Kitty playing with Rexx’s shirt. “She seems to like you,” she says while looking
at Kitty.
Quote:
Rexx: laughs and looks at Arial. “Really? Well i’ve always been told i have
something that really draws animals to me.” He says, looking down at the cat.
Watching it for a second, it wasn’t until it rolled over onto the floor that he
realised it was pretty much dazed by the strike. Getting back up, it jumped onto
the sofa and sat near its owner.
“Is it a boy or a girl?” He asked, looking back at Arial.
Quote:
United_we_stand: “Hey, I tried to do them all a favour I bought everyone a
drink, They just had too amny of them as beer, instead of tea.”
Smiles sheepishly
Quote:
She smiles and pets Kitty. “Yeah, well thats why a lot of people go to the
taverns. To talk, and to get drunk,” she says to United and then turns to Rexx.
“Kitty is a girl,” she says with a smile.
Quote:
United_we_stand: Smiles”I don’t go there to get drunk, Oh well must be on my
way thankyou for having me.”Bows”Goodbye to you to Rexx”
Quote:
Rexx: Smiles and looks at United. “Good bye and good luck my friend.” He
says calmly and looks back at the kitten. “Well she is cute, a little clumsy, but
cute.” He said again to Arial, smirking slightly.
Quote:

She says good bye to United and turns back to Rexx. “Yeah she is a little
clumsy,” she says looking at Kitty. Then she leans towards Rexx and whispers
something into his ear.
Quote:
Smiles and then closes his eyes when she whispers to him, noting the cat not
aproving of him stealing the attention. He then turns his attetion to Arial’s eyes
and smiles. “How did i get this lucky?” He asked her, smiling as he does.
Quote:
Smiles and blushes at what Rexx said “You aren’t the only lucky one,” she says
giving him a wink. Then looks at Kitty and pets her so she doesn’t feel left out.
Quote:
Smirking he looks at the cat. “Yeah, the cat’s lucking to.” He yawned slightly,
stretching his arms a little and looking back at Arial.
Quote:
Smiles and carrys on petting Kitty. As she sits there she remembers that she has
a few things she has to pick up at the town hall.
“Well, I have a few things I have to do right now. Have to go pick up
something at the the market. Will I see you later?” She asks as she stands up
and walks him to the door.
She gives him a hug and a kiss and watches as he leaves.

Bubbles in.

Bubblesrk: Walks in and ask how r u today.
Quote:
She closes the door behind them and sits down in the living room.
Hearing Bubbles asks how she was she hesitated for a moment but decides to
tell her anyway. “I have been better,” she says with a sigh. “Rexx and I aren’t
getting married. At least not right now, maybe sometime in the future… How
are you?” She asks looking at Bubbles.

water.

Quote:
Swims back to Bubbles and Relikie. She sees that they are chasing each other
and she wonders what they are doing. So she watches for a little while.

Quote:
Being tagged on the leg, Relikie was surprised. He turned around and didn’t see
Bubbles. He sees Arial standing and watching. He runs to her and tags her on
the arm.

Quote:
Relikie looks to the side and sees Arial with a clueless look on her face. He
ducks back behind the rock before she spots him.
He whispers to Bubbles, “This is a lot fun. She isn’t coming either”
Quote:
She is shocked when Relikie tags her. She sees them swim off, and she trys to
swim after them but they are to fast.
Stopping to think where they might be. She sees someone peak behind a rock
and swims over there. “ah ha!” she says as she sees Relikie and Bubbles. She
tags who ever was closest to her and swims off.

Quote:
Bubblesrk: Yeah. She says come on seen us pulls relikes arm.Starts swimming
fast.
Quote:
Relikie is dragged by Bubbles to who knows where. He keeps swimming fast to
try to keep up.

to get away from them to see if they would notice.

the rocks. He gets ready to jump if Arial trys to come after him.

“Ok, then stand up and I will walk you somewhere,” she tells him.
When he stands up she walks him to a waterfall coming down a hill. “Well here

Quote:
Luke Is running along through the bush on a daily workout when he suddenly
comes out and around a large rock.Realising too late there is a bunch of people,
and promptly crashes into them. Gets up apologising”So sorry, should have
been looking where I was going a bit more.”Helps the women to thier feet
Quote:
Is shocked that Luke didn’t see them but thanks him for helping her up. Turns
around and helps Relikie up. “Next time pay more attention on where you are
are going please,” she tells him.
Quote:
Taian wanders to the edge a bluff, peering timidly over the edge at a small
group of people by the water below. He wondered to himself what their names
were, and why they seemed so content to just be. A ray of light reflecting off
the water caught his eye. It stunned him and he stumbled forward, helplessly
over the edge. This rising feeling in the pit of his stomach was, he thought, the
most wonderful thing.
He knew that he must be soon to hit the ground, which made him wonder of
God’s kingdom. What kind of work was there to do there? Were all the Angels
really beautiful?
“Surely there is one ugly creature amongst them,” Taian said breathlessly to
himself against the raging air. He dared not look, for fear. Instead he ventured
to listen closely. He heard a name, but couldn’t make out just whose name it
was. It almost sounded like, Luke. Was it the apostle? Could the great
physician be saving him from his plight?
He finally ventured to look below him, accepting fate. As he turned to do so he
was engulfed in cool liquid with a great splash. When his eyes finally opened
all around him were the wavy shapes he could only associate with looking through water.
What joy! I am only in the comforts of the pond!
He surfaced gasping at the sweet air above the water and swam towards the
people he was watching from the bluff. The fall had given him courage to seek
their company. Not to mention a racing heart.
Quote:
Luke nods to arial”I will try to pay more attention when trianign rather than just
thinking about things as I run”
Quote:
“Ok,” she says to Luke with a smile. Hearing a loud splash she looks to the
water and sees a man swimming over to them.
When he comes up to them she says as she looks at him. “Hello, I don’t think I
have ever met you before. Are you new to town?” She studies him for a while
wondering who he is and where he came from.
Quote:
Taian, his eyes shining their strange cinnamon color, slowly lifts himself out of
the water to tower over the group.
“No, M’lady, I do not believe that we have met. My name is Taian. As for a
surname, I have none. Some call me Moss due to my birthplace, a peat bog, but
I am not likened to being called such. I recently came to Coventry, hoping to
find my place on God’s green earth here,” he sputtered in response to the lady’s
query, water still dripping from his frame.
Suddenly Taian became very aware of the fact that he was wearing only the
barest of clothes. His face blushed as he crossed his arms in an attempt to hide
the warring creatures tattooed on his torso. His muscles rippled as he did so,
seeming to make the inking of the Arch Angel Michael dance on his stomach.
“Might I ask your name, most beautiful of angels?”
Quote:
Studying him she notices strange markings on his skin. Never seeing them
before she was a little suspicious of this strange man. He is taller than anyone she has ever met.
“Well it’s nice to meet you Taian. I hope you are happy in Coventry. It is a nice
town full of really nice people. They will make you feel at home I am sure,”
she says smiling and still studing him.
She smiles as she notices him trying to cover up the markings on his torso, and
blushes as his muscles rippled as he did so.
She blushes even more when he says most beautiful of angels. “My name is
Arial de Grey,” she responds to him and looks him in the eyes for the first time.
As she looks in his eyes she notices they are different from anyones she has
seen before. They were a cinnamon color and she could take her eyes away
from them. “He seems like an interesting man.He seems nice, but I am still a
little suspicious about him,” she thinks to herself as she looks into his eyes.

“I am assured that you are wondering what these drawings are in my skin. I
acquired them whilst in Cathay. They are of a painting I saw there. There are
twelve angels and six demons and three faeries. You are lucky to have seen
them, as I am not easily caught without my vestige,” Taian replied as he
lowered his arms and assumed a far less imposing position seated on a nearby
rock.
After a moment, Taian began again, “Ariel de Gray. A beautiful name as well, I
will have to commit it to memory. Will you have the company of a miner,
M’lady?”
Taian lowered his eyes from hers as he thought about the restrictions that birth
and rank put upon the possibility of friendship.

She looks at him a little while longer and then looks away. “Those are some
interesting drawings. Never seen them before. I have never seen anyone with
any kind of drawings on there body,” she responds when he tells her about
them.
“I don’t mind the company. Relikie was here somewhere but I don’t know
where he went,” she says looking around a little. “Oh well, I guess he will show
up somewhere,” she says and shrugs.
Looking back at him she thinks to herself. “He doesn’t seem so bad. Might even become a good friend.” She looks away and wonders again where Relikie went
too.

Luke walks up with Arial’s hat that she dropped , which the wind blew away
when he accidently ran into her.”Here we are M’lady, largest apologies.”
Quote:
“Unless you venture to Cathay you may ne’er see the likes of them again. I am
want to think that the art will never reach the shores of this isle.”
Taian ventured to look in her direction again.
“I suppose I will see you in a days time, maybe two, as I have work to do. Shall
we meet here again, or would you rather venture the ruins? I have yet to see
them.”
Quote:
“Thanks for getting my hat and it’s ok just don’t let it happen again,” she says as
Luke hands her back her hat.
“Cathay seems like an interesting place to have draws like that on your body,”
she says looking back at him. “I wouldn’t mind seeing the ruins. I haven’t seen
them yet either. So in a day or two we will meet again?”
Quote:
“We have an accord. I will be sure to wear a shirt.”
Taian turned and walked away, taking great strides towards the crest of the first
hill. At it’s peak he stopped to yell back, “Farewell, Ariel de Grey, and Blessed
Be!”
Quote:
She watches him leave and then turns back to Luke. “Where did Relikie go?
Have you seen him?” She asks and looks around again. “Seems like he just
disappeared… oh well I must be off now,” she says and leaves the falls.

Waves good bye to Arial and continues on on his training.
