Edolon: Empires at War  

Go Back   Edolon: A Tournament of Shadows > The Game Board > Kingsreach > Kingsport

Kingsport The smaller (population 8,000) but northernmost port of the 'Reach, Kingsport's fortunes faltered and fell in the last ten years with Zaksalam cutting off the northern trade routes, but the city is recuperating with the return of trade. The town's name is from the Vellfyre summer palace which is built nearby and serves as a seat for younger sons and a place for the court to flee in case of plague in Tal Volorro.

Parissa laughed and dashed off after Lucia, gamely following along a few moments alter when Kaelyn's head was turned. Her guard might follow, she supposed, but he would just have to keep up. She darted past the opening Lucia had picked. "And what happens if we encounter your family? We must bribe them or admit defeat?"

"Bribes. Yes! Or... provide distractions... Let's see... Can you throw voice at all? Just... curious?" she asked, crouching behind a tent, peering over the top dramatically. "Or... cry on command? That's a neat trick... Ziamara cand o it... I wonder if she'll teach me," she said a bit distractedly. "Anyway... We shouldn't fake ill... they'll see us to a magister's tent... Oh! But maybe telling them somebody ELSE is ill...? Either way... we don't admit defeat. It's tarts or death... Or... well... maybe not death, but for the purposes of this game, tarts or death!"

"Crying on command is easy. Usually you just have to look like you're going to cry- or that's how Alodie does it..." She laughed. "But I like the way you think." She caught up to Lucia's side again and put her hand on her arm. "Which way from here?"

"Um... this way..." Lucia said, looking down between them and reaching to grab Parissa's hand. She hurried along towards a tree, and then with a gasp, pressed her back against it. "Hide," she whispered loudly. "It's Prince Bryce!"

She peered around to see if he'd noticed them, saw the older man shake his head and give a sigh. "Dear gods..." But if that was to them, he at least went on his way. Better not to know... Lucia almost laughed at that. "Oh... saved by the apathy of being old..."

"I heard that..." Bryce said as he began to walk again.

"Crap... Sorry!" she called. "I love you!"

"Okay... Um... Just a snag... He won't tell anyone. Come on," she said, smiling as they continued.

Prince... Bryce?! Parissa's eyes went saucer-wide and she looked at Lucia like she'd grown a second head as the other girl dragged her off from the safety of their shelter. "Did you just... the... aren't you scared of him?" she squeaked.

"Of Bryce? Oh... no," she laughed. "Well... when he's mad, yes. Avoid him when he's in a temper... but you'll always know. He's very close with my father, though, so he was always around when I was younger. Why... are you scared of him? He's not the one to be scared of," she whispered. "Melantha is far more terrifying. So is Alianor."

Parissa's expression was dubious. "The prince talked about his uncle. He doesn't sound like someone I'd be comfortable playing around," she whispered. "Won't he go tell the princess on you?"

"I don't think so. We're not doing anything terrible. Just playing. Besides... if he went to go tell my cousin about us, he'd have to go then tell Melantha about Ziamara... and he probably will just leave well enough alone. Come... before another of my kin happen by," she said, hurrying again, but this time using the cover of the trees to move along.

Parissa frowned, trying not only to follow Lucia's route but the dizzying layers of Vellfyre responsibility. "So... You're more scared of Melantha than you are of Prince Bryce? But Lady Melantha's so... nice..."

"Well... Bryce is funnier," she said, almost tripping over a root. "He makes me laugh. A lot. He's sort of like a second father to me, I guess." Or a first depending on how you looked at it. "Melantha gives those looks when she disapproves. You know the ones?" Lucia squinted her eyes, wrinkled her nose, and pursed her lips. "Like that. She doesn't even have to yell at you to make you feel five inches tall."

"I haven't noticed. I always feel five inches tall around her," Parissa admitted with a shrug. "But... I'll have to try to get the courage to talk to Prince Bryce someday I suppose."

"He's even nicer now that he's old..." she said, waiting to see if Bryce responded. He was always tricky that way. But no. Just silence. She stopped when the trees cleared, seeing the tent between a few others, and a fire in the clearing where some of her cousins probably were. With a decisive nod, her hand tightened around Parissa's and she took off... Only to run smack into somebody who literally seemed to come out of nowhere. She fell backward, knocking Parissa down with her, and rubbed her nose which had smushed against the golem's chest. Golem... Oh! She recognized the golem. "Oh wow... I'm sorry, Kain. I didn't see you..." She gave Parissa a look as she got to her feet, but she couldn't explain it just yet. Instead, she offered her hand to help her up, too.

Kain had thought he heard someone crashing through the brush. Zee's pet cousin, and... oh, was that Jason's pet fiancee? Kain's mouth curved in a smile as he put a hand on Lucia's shoulder, ostensibly to assist her balance. "Careful, Lu, you wouldn't want the sentries mistaking you for an attacker. What's this... ? Are you two up to something you shouldn't be doing by any chance?"

Pari yelped a warning that came too late- Lucia rammed right into someone, who didn't even look like he took a hit. Fighter, she realized at once. Knight. And watching his smile, and the very Vellfyre looks... She heard Lucia address him by name...

Wide-eyed she watched Kain. "We're... we're just playing," she said defensively.

"Why... Why would you ask that...?" Lucia said, reaching up to pull a leaf out of her hair. "We... would never... Shit, I'm an awful liar... Um... Run!" She said very suddenly, taking hold of Parissa again, hoping to flee around Kain.

"Playing what, pretty girls?" He was faster than Lucia, and reached out snagging Parissa's sleeve with one hand, Lucia's arm with the other.

Parissa yipped as her sleeve caught, and jerked off balance as Lucia's hold pulled one direction, Kain's another, and ended up falling right against his arm.

"Oops, looks like I caught one..." Kain grinned wickedly at Lucia, still holding onto her arm and wrapping the other around Parissa, preparing to pick her up. "Should I deliver her to be interrogated, Luc?"

Lucia made a strange cry, something like an 'ack,' when she was caught, and nearly stumbled again. "Really, Kain. We weren't doing anyth- Hmm... That depends..." she said, sniffing and looking at a wide-eyed Parissa. "Where are we delivering her... and am I allowed to go, too?"

Parissa was torn between laughter and genuine fright as Kain wrapped his arm around her middle and hefted her up like a particularly undignified bag of barley. "No! Stop!"

Kain ignored her protests. "I can think of a few people who'd be quite interested in this one," he told Lucia. "And you, come to think of it. Sneaking off... in search of forbidden fruits, hm?" He grinned. "Come on, I've got a couple bottles of melon liqueur in my tent, if my sister hasn't stolen them. You can explain your reasons to me then."

"Just put me down first?"

"And trust her not to run off with you? I think not, my lady." Kain laughed but he did switch his hold to at least carry her with an arm wrapped around her waist, though her feet were still off the ground by several inches. "Keep shrieking like that, you'll have the prince swooping in to save you. Unless of course that's your hope...?"

Parissa glared at him but fell silent. "You're not very polite, ser."

"If you were taller, I'd worry about politeness. Come on, Lady Parissa. Be a good sport and let me borrow you to bait my cousin."

Lucia rubbed at her nose again and followed, having to reach out to catch Kain by the back of his tunic to keep up with his stride. Gods, it was like she was six again. Trying to keep up with her brother and older cousins. "You might take us... and torture us... but we shall never tell." Lucia said, finally finding a pace to match his, though it seemed she was half running now. "Our resolve is as strong as the mountain, as loud as a griffons roar... You shall get nothing from us..." She said, eyeing Parissa as he adjusted his hold on her. "Unless of course you've the forbidden fruit we were looking for...?"

She wrinkled her nose. "Run off...? When you are so much faster...? We wouldn't get far. No... More clever tactics will be needed. We are your prisoners... for now." Then she smirked. "Oh... just cry, my lady. That should bait Jason enough. You'll have a black eye to match your humor," she said, pushing some of her hair back. "And we might yet get away to claim our prize."

Parissa huffed a sigh and wriggled half-heartedly but he was far bigger, far stronger and there was melon liqueur at the end of the trip. "Oh, very well..." Theatrically, she put her hand up to her forehead. "Woe is me. Abducted and forced to drink delicious cordials. Whatever will we do?"

Kain laughed and slowed his gait to let Lucia catch her breath but he eyed Parissa, then his cousin. "The two of you running loose in this encampment? Without guard or proper escort? Oh, no, Luc, you are not getting away from me that easily." He reached out to get hold of her arm and looped his around it, then brought it in to his side, keeping Lucia's arm pinned tight. Luckily for her, Kain's encampment was dead ahead.

"So what forbidden fruit was it, girls?"

"And where's yours, coz...?" she asked, tilting her head, not fighting against the hold. "And... she had an escort. She had me... And mine... is right here. Good of you to finally catch up," she said with a bright grin. Damn, Kain was warm. She might have actually protested the hold on her arm if he wasn't.

"Well... you know us... Sex and all sorts of debauchery. Perhaps with one another... but we were hoping to find some of the Golden Sons to sate our lusty desires..." She rolled her eyes. "We were just playing. Innocent fun. You know... the usual."

"Innocent fun, you? I'd believe the Golden Sons tale more easily- likely to play drinking games and daggers." Kain snorted, but as they neared his pavilion he called out to his squires to grab the cups and set out the chairs, then set Parissa on the ground and carefully dusted off the back of her dress. Maybe a bit more than carefully, before he played at straightening the shoulders of her dress.

Parissa's eyes narrowed dangerously and she darted out of his reach after a moment. "You said melon liqueur?" But one of the squires was already bringing it out and she grabbed a cup to take a drink without further ado. "Oh, gods... I missed this! It tastes like Fairgrove."

Kain turned his attention back to Lucia as he took a cup from his squire and held it out to her. "I'll escort you anywhere you ask, Lucia, if only as a favor to Ziamara. You shouldn't be wandering around without someone. You know better."

Lucia's eyes narrowed at him. "If only?" She took the cup and then a sip. "There's no need, Kain. Your father has already seen us and thought nothing of our little adventure. We were only heading to my father's tent anyway to get some sweets. We were just making a game of it is all. I mean... the only other thing to do around here is drink and play with Golden Sons."

Kain scowled at Lucia then went over to refill Parissa's already near-drained cup. "So you wandered alone and at night near a sellsword camp? My father must be drunk not to have stopped you. And you, Lady Parissa, should be counted lucky if you're not saddled with a Crownsguard after this."

Parissa looked at Kain, at Lucia, and then ducked her head and nodded before setting back to drinking her cup. At least this lecture came with drink.

"Lucia, sit down. Tristifer!" he called to his squire again and the boy came dashing out. "Go find my father- or my cousin Jason, whichever you find first. I want to see whether the whole of the family's gone soft in the head... and meanwhile..."

He smiled and produced a set of dice from the pouch at his belt. "Want to play, Lucia?"

She sighed. "Are you fucking kidding me right now?" She gave him a look as if he'd betrayed her. Betrayed them both. "He's being dramatic, Lady Parissa. We weren't as alone as all that... Bryce knew where we were, and if you don't already have guards keeping an eye on your every move, I'll eat my own slipper... Gods, I hope you have guards keeping an eye on you... I don't know what I've stepped in..."

Lucia did sit down, taking another sip. These men... "Sure..." she said. "Too few for three man... Are we simply playing high rolls?"

Kain grinned. "High rolls it is. But I could find dice enough for Three Man, and I'm sure I can steal one of Tristifer's hats if you want one of those as well." He chuckled and pulled out a seat for Parissa before dropping in the next one and sliding the dice across to Lucia. "I'll point out, coz, that as of right now, if she had a guard... you've lost him somewhere dashing around in the dark, else he'd have turned up by now. Start rolling."

Lucia took the dice and shook them in her hand, waiting until it felt just so and then dropping them. "Nine," she said, reaching for her cup. "Your turn..." She took a deep drink and eyed Kain over the rim of her drink. "Then he's not a very good guard, is he?" she countered. "I'm not exactly nimble or quick... That said, we were in no real danger. We were loud enough to be heard... Even managed to have your father overhear me call him old... Good times."

"In a dark, unfamiliar camp, following two little slips into the night... I wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't run into me." He took a drink, reached for the dice... rolled. "Seven."

He handed it to Parissa who had decided quiet was a good thing for this moment. Maybe they'd get involved in arguing and she could slip off... She rolled the dice. "Twelve..."

"Drink," he informed her, and slid the dice to Lucia.

Lucia looked over at Parissa... She was going to have to start counting. If she was going to claim to be her escort... She would at least make sure the lady didn't fall over in her cups like Kellan had failed to do when they'd first gotten back. "Lucky us..." she said, rolling the dice again. "Six." She handed them towards Kain.

"A little slip? We were just at the tree line... Right beside the path... The brightly lit path where our kin happen to be running up and down. Considering how everybody's been so deep in their own cups, it almost makes no difference."

Kain rolled 9 and Parissa a 3, so he took the next drinks before returning them to Lucia. "It makes a difference when you aren't where they think you should be," he pointed out.

"Lucia, it's all right. I knew better than to leave my guard," Parissa put in, trying to sound contrite. "But he wouldn't have let us play."

Kain grimaced. She sounded ten. Then again, so did Lucia, with less reason. "Lucia, it's the future queen you're running amok with." He spoke more gently- or as gently as he could. "And not to upset either of you, but encampments full of men who just got back from a war are not the encampments you're used to."
