A journey of Mercy

Postby Bogof » Fri May 12, 2006 12:28 am

Bartholemew clutches his bible on the outskirts of Sanga, silently prays to god for the strength and fortitude to do what must be done, then heads out towards a wooded glade with a stream running by it.

He hopes that he remembers the way since the Sunday. Perhaps the halfling still sleeps. His pace quickens at the thought of sleeping rough for several days without protection or food.

In a few hours he finds the road down to the stream that he recognises, being cautious he carefully keeps to the bushes as much as possible to avoid patrols and other beings.

With care, Bartholemew manages to get to the grove of trees without incident..

**Still lying in the grove is the Halfling. He seems unharmed and is very much alive. However, around him lie several dozen dead High Elves. The backs of their necks are sliced open. The Halfling remains asleep but in each hand is clutched a small dagger**

He approaches the prone halfling carefully. Thinking hard, he manouvers one of the high elf bodies to lie on one of the arms while Bartholemew goes over to the other arm and attempts to disarm him, making sure to be almost lying flat to the ground as he does so, with all the care of a safecracker.

The Halfling stirs not one bit...

Bartholemew puts the dagger into his bag well out of reach of the halfling should he attempt to get it. Although he is willing to accept that the small fellow is still unconcious, he did say he was a follower of Dakron, and even with that spirit gone, he does not want to be murdered. Again, with care, he pushes the high elf off the arm and attempts to prise the dagger out of his hand.

**A slight tingling at the back of Bartholemew's neck is all he feels... as he slips out of consciousness he swears he sees the Halfling's face turn to him, a manic smile on his lips**

6 Hours later

**Bartholemew awakes. He is still in the clearing. The Bodies and the Halfling are gone. However, he notices that there are various lines burned into the ground all around him...**

Bartholemew comes suddenly awake, like a dowsing in cold water. He doesn't move however, rather he attmepts to see if the lines have any pattern to them apart from being all around him. Taking a small twig, he throws it over one of the lines to see if it does anything.

**Nothing happens to the twig. The lines seem to be fairly irregular but Bartholemew feels that there is more to them...**

Making sure not to disturb the lines, he moves to a climbable tree and heads to near the top to see if that vantage point allows his own theory about the lines to be proved. He thinks it might be some sort of map.

**His theory is wrong... the lines seem to make out a picture... of a giant cross... it almost looks to Bartholemew like a crucifix. As he watches the lines burst into red flames, and the land around catches swiftly on fire burning with a white light. A red crucifix on white...**

He almost loses grip on his tree at the sight of the burning cross. A sign from GOD! He shields his eyes and attempts to climb down avoiding the burning land. As soon as he is a safe distance. he prostrates himself face down on the ground and praises god for his mercy and berates himself for not being worthy of such attention from him.

**The flames subside... the landscape is unmarked and the lines on the floor... gone...**

When he hears the flames die down, Bartholemew raises his head. He looks a mess, he has wept fiercely at the emotion of such a strong sign. Slowly, he sorts out himself and proceeds back to Sanga, pondering exactly what the message might mean.
