Silvine and friends finally reached the small town of Balligan. Keeping his wyvern in the stables, Silvine booked two rooms in the inn: One for Annette, and the other for the other three. As for Crow's henchmen..... they were to meet them at the pub the next day, for they were very tired now. The journey, although not very long, was very boring, and they did not carry much food with them. They needed to eat and sleep well to get ready for this assasination. However, with only about a month's time before a possible attack on Pherae, Silvine wanted to get this done quickly. His heart was beating faster... he was eager to kill some Etrurian soldiers. He was eager to win honour for his home.... and prevent disaster of course.
He turned to Theodor and told him," Take care of Annette Theo, I'm going to see Aragog for a bit. Oh, and Orisis, its only 8 in the night, I don't think you sleep too soon... right? Meet me in the woods south of this town, I'll be waiting for you. We may need to talk about stuff." he told to the two men.
And that was that. Silvine walked to the stables. It was imperative that he had another training session now.
Silvine found Aragog sleeping in its stable. He must have been really tired, because it was only 15 minutes since Silvine had left him there!
"Hey Aragog, buddy. Do you think you can stay awake for some training?" he tried to whisper to the small wyvern.
Aragog was not a fully grow wyvern. He was more like at his adolescent stage. Playful, yet he could get serious at times too. This time, he was playful. It seemed he could hear Silvine's words, and was in fact not sleeping, but just pretending to.
The wyvern pounced on Silvine and started licking his face. " Aragog, cut that out!" he said irritably. it was not funny when your wyvern licked you every time it saw you.
"I'll take that as a yes Aragog. Well, come on then." he said, and the wyvern followed him to the woods.
At the woods, Silvine stretched his body for a bit. He needed to get ready, this session would be important. He HAD to master the technique of making his wyvern go in loops, or flips. Aragog could do that, the problem was that he, Silvine, would fall off the wyvern. He needed to stop this.
Silvine tried a few lance twirls. " That seemed good." he thought," well, well Silvine! You're getting better and better with each practice session!" he said to himself.
"Hey Aragog, let's spar." he said to the young wyvern.
This would be interesting. A young knight versus a young, yet larger, wyvern.
Balligan, Orisis had passed the town once before when he first left home to practice the art of magic but he had never entered the town and would be sure to make a mental note if he had found anything special.. Which he hadn't. It was a boring town, one with nothing he had not seen before.
"Ah.. Quite a dull sight.. Nothing for a hungry mind.."
He looked over to Silvine cracking his neck a bit and stretching from the cramps he got from being on the Wyvern.. Similar to what he would get reading his books for days on end when the subject was interesting.. Just like Silvine's Wyvern..
"No I still have enough energy to last for.. Quite a bit I'll meet up with you soon."
He took his time before heading down south so that he could study his Tome of Flux if their mission was as important as it seemed he would need to have his mind as sharp as it could be to cast such dangerous magic.

Silvine charged forward at the wyvern. The wyvern stood still and stared on at his little master, who was going to attack him. Little did Silvine know that the wyvern was skilled in blocking itself.
Aragog just whipped its tail, knocking the charging Silvine back. Silvine smiled to himself. Aragog was sure becoming stronger, Silvine thought it was actually improving more than he himself. That was good- he needed a trusty steed. A stury, loyal one.
Silvine was not done yet. Silvine charged immediately after he stopped skidding from the knockback, and this time used his lance to jump over the incoming tail, thereby allowing him to get in close range with the wyvern. With the blnt end of his spear, he aimed at the wyvern's face, and the wyvern replied with a headbutt, sending Silvine crashing into a tree.
"Ugh..Aragog. You sure are one tough beast to knock down. That's good. Our future enemies are going to be tougher than we have ever faced...I just know it!" he said, and patted Aragog on his back.
Silvine returned and saw Theodor with eyes brimming with tears. "Silvine, I'm so sorry but Annette.....she...killed herself." he said tearfully.
"What?? Theo?? But WHY??" he asked in shock.
"I do not know, Silvine.... but.. she told me that she thought herself as a burden to you and to the whole world and..I tried stopping her, but.." Theodor said.
"No more, Theo, No more. I guess... we'll have to move on. We cannot delay this mission any further, even if it hurts. What happened to her body anyways?" Silvine asked Theodor.
"Well, um, Silvine, she actually drowned in a river. She stabbed herself while she fell. You know, the river we saw earlier on our way here?" he said, more calmly now.
"I-" Silvine tried to speak, but his throat was blocked.
Why did she have to do this? She was the reason he actually came this far...but now... he seemed so lost. Annette.....
"I think I need to catch some shut-eye, Theo, Orisis. Rest well... just... don't think too much about what happened. We'll... get ready tomorrow."
Silvine went into Annette's room. He was going to sleep there and leave Theodor and Orisis to sleep in the other room. He needed time to recover from this shock. This... unbelievable story. How? Why did she do it? Did she hate herself just because she was...a dancer?
Silvine closed his eyes and prayed things would be alright in the morning. Of course, they would not be, at least, as long as Annette's death haunted him.
OOC: Orisis, I think we should do a support thread between Silvine and Orisis. My idea is to basically allow Orisis to examine Silvine's wyvern and they talk about stuff. Start a thread in the support thread if you like.

OoC: Ok, it looks like I'm gonna move on and meet Casey, I'll just post a summary as to what happened in the end.
BiC: The next day, Silvine read the newspaper.. it was shockig news!
Crow was finally caught and imprisoned! For that to have happened... something was amiss.
He also sawpictures of the three assasins Crow had sent Silvine to work with... had they done the job already?.... no, if that was the case, there would have been news about the assasination. Perhaps... they were caught trying to plan it and...
Silvine was struck with grief. First, Annete was dead, and now, these guys were gone too? What now?
"Silvine, I suggest we head out of the town, into some other place. Delfia seems too dangerous at the moment. Also... where is Orisis?"Theodoer replied.
"You're right Theodor. And I think Orisis is up there, drinking some rum... or maybe he just set out to explore again. Who knows? We can't stay here though, Theodor. We must set out and find out more about this. If you find Orisis...coax him to come along." Silvine finished.
OOC: So so so so so SO sorry with all the in-activeness.. My laptop imploded being the old thing she is and for the last.. Well long time I've been switching around parts and such trying to rebuild it. And I did.. But the new motherboard is really bad so I have to keep tinkering since I think I can upgrade it myself.. So I'll be lurking.. Waiting for my turns.. And not use the hammer on it. > Oh yes and I will be getting that support up soon. Just need to think of a witty title and the ability to stop the flames coming out of the fan.
OOC 2: This post is what's happening during ze end as well.. Just give me a low down of where we're going. >_>
Orisis would have been caught sleeping on a bench out in plain sight with a bottle in one hand and a book in the other. Annette's suicide had caused him to go into a spiral of study, reading on peoples behaviors to better read people as well as motivate him even more to find ways that certain.. Effects of Elder Magic could be reversed.. He was tired of watching people he knew parish..
Knowledge.. More knowledge..
Were the thoughts that grazed his mind as he slept, mumbling incoherently as he drifted into the worlds of dream and reality unaware of what was going around him.. Luckily for him his other personal effects were still in his room at the nearby inn.
