A Late Return

Postby dainul » Sat Apr 02, 2011 5:43 pm

Had it really been seven months since he'd last been here?

Zem stops at the threshold of the Healing Centre and looks around. He notices a number of new memorials, and the damage to the structure, half repaired after the demonic attack. A lot had certainly happened.

He'd parted ways with the Nomads and their allies a day or so outside Piddling and turned towards Nandine after repeating his thanks. When he arrived in Nandine, he had some difficulties with the guards who thought he was Warryn, as the only other diamond elf they'd known of was dead. Rilla had needed to step in in the end.

Now he looks across the Healing Centre, then finally walks through the door, and proceeds to the central office, such as it was. "Sorry I'm late. Apparently I've been dead. Where am I needed?"

Fionan rolls his eyes and sighs in mock irritation - but he can't keep the smile from his face.

Walking the other side of Zemepatis from Fin, Rilla manages a smile, despite her incredible weariness. "Lots of work" she agrees, "but after so long without hearing your voice, Zem, even bad jokes are welcome."

A tired looking Light Elf looks up as the Diamond Elf flanked by Finn and Rilla enters. "Oh!"
She walks over to them, smiling. "Master Finn, Miss Rilla, welcome back. And...?" She looks curiously at the Diamond Elf.

The guildmaster is more than a little taken aback at the unnanounced reappearance, not to mention the introduction given. It takes him a moment to regain his composure, during which Zem turns to the light elf.

"Zemepatis," he introduces himself with a smile.

"Umm... Welcome back," the guildmaster finally manages. "I believe we have everything in hand at the moment. I'm sure we could allow you some time to settle back in if you need it." He frowns slightly at Rilla, "and you definitely need to get some rest my dear."

Rilla blinks at Eryssa and tries to smile. "Hello Eryssa. Yes, this is Zemepatis, in the flesh. Well, sort of. Remind to me tell you all about it when I'm awake" She sways slightly and nods wearily at the Guildmaster. "Yes Sir; about a week would be nice. If any demons arrive, could you tell them to come back another day please?" Blinking several times she feels herself becoming unsteady and reaches out to the nearest stable object - or person - for support.

Without apparently paying any attention to the motion, Zem holds out his arm for Rilla to lean on. "Very well, sir. We'll leave you to it, then." Guiding Rilla somewhat firmly towards the healers' quarters.

Rilla doesn't even murmur as Zem steers her away; she is only just awake enough to register reaching the sleeping quarters. Despite being almost asleep on her feet however, she remains determined to pray before she goes to bed, offering thanks to the Celestial Dragon for the lives of an innocent child and three friends in addition to her usual devotions. She adds a prayer of thanks to Gerethanax as well, for allowing Zemepatis to return to them

Anyone close enough hears "No more dying" as she drifts off to sleep

Kira, still at the Healing Center, having helped with the cleaning up of things and general reconstruction (it was pleasant to turn one's attentions to creating, he had found), was still helping to care for the people themselves in anyway he could...Having some minor healing spells meant he was outclassed in all, but still useful treating minor injuries wherever he might. When he was not aiding in reconstruction or any other means, he had taken to going off a bit and going through a series of sword kata, trying to improve upon himself, constantly. Otherwise, he had taken to standing guard, confident enough to hold off any further attacks till a more sutable force could arrive, and deal out as much damage as he possibly could to anything stupid enough to summon up the courage to make another attack upon the recovering place of healing.

Today, he wandered inside again, a faint blue-ish glow emenating from his flesh...while he had felt "hot" the day of the attack, today he felt "wet" or "cool", having become as energetic as before, but much more stable and adapting.
Passing the others, and keeping a careful eye upon each, he bowed his head slightly, before positioning himself against a wall near the entrance, quietly. He had a task, but now he had to keep a close eye upon a weary Sentinel, as well as keep track of the others, wherever they might be. In time he'd have to go looking for them, but he'd take notes when Rilla was a little more awake.
As it turns out, our battle plan is NOT "Synchronized Panicking"

As Fionan leaves the sleeping quarters he hears Rilla's mumble - and responds, part to himself and part to Zem

" Yeah. I'm sorry Rilla - I'll try not to do it again. "

Eryssa followed them, looking worried. She was used to Rilla mothering everyone, including herself, and to see her drained of energy like this was extremely worrying.
She watched as her mentor fell asleep and then looked up at the Diamond Elf. "Um... What happened to her?"

Finn. although not actually falling asleep, also looks pretty shattered.

" Restoring Zem exacted a price from us - we are a little - diminished I guess you could say. Rilla gave the largest share of herself to the ritual. We'll be fine given rest and when we've worked out which of our spells we can still access and those that will have to be re-learnt. "
