Just another day in paradise

Postby Will » Tue Jun 19, 2012 8:39 pm

**Sonya returned from the water hole, a bucket of water in each hand. She whistled as she travelled, content with life. Her children were provided for, her partner getting his satisfaction from manual labour rebuilding homes. Yes, life was...

A wail of anguish caused Sonya to quicken her pace, spilling some water as she did so. As she entered the makeshift village on the outskirts of Ingolé she made her way to the crowd of people in the centre. A wailing woman, Harriet her name was, cradled her young son in her arms... dead. Asking around it was clear that the child had become ill very suddenly and died within hours.

Shaken, Sonya travelled quickly to her home, keen to check her own children were fine. They look up to her expectantly as she comes in, her youngest, a daughter, running up and hugging her. Breathing a sigh of relief, Sonya turned to put the pails down.

The daughter coughs, and the sound is enough to make Sonya jump, spilling some water on the ground. As she turns to her daughter, she is unaware of the light smoke rising from where the liquid spilt, and the swiftly darkening stone**

Among the people of the small village, is a rather unusual looking figure, clad in purple robes with a mask over the lower half of his face, generally mistaken as being to reduce spread of disease. As Ingolé was known for it's spellcasters, it wasn't particularly odd to see people with unique fashion sense, but they tended not to come out to places like this, and they generally looked healthier than the common people too, two things which didn't apply to this one.

Having overheard the screaming and resultant conversation, he approaches the crowd to ask for further details of what happened, and any other children in the area. Eventually convincing the crowd that he was a healer, although he did have to stab himself in the arm first to prove it. A few rounds of routine healing of ordinary illnesses and injuries, and finally he's trusted enough to actually find out what has happened so far.

He didn't like the sound of this, apparently healthy children going sick and dying this quickly did not sound natural at all, having heard of other domes collapsing after similar illnesses, it felt like a bad omen, and there really wasn't enough domes to begin with.

Outside Sonya's house, the new village healer knocks on the door.

**A red eyed woman opens it slowly. She stares blankly at Sacril.**

"Can I help you?"

Sacril decided that the truth was an impediment to the survival of the people of the village. Since being covered in knives wasn't a good way to look trustworthy, they were instead stored in his backpack. The sword was too big to conceal, but could be explained anyway, as anyone even vaguely important in Ingolé would likely be given a weapon to defend themselves if need be.

"Yes, reports have been heard of potential outbreak of illness in the village, and I've been sent on official business to investigate what is happening, and if possible, to aid anyone who may be affected. I need to check if your general state of health, and given the nature of current reports, I need to check your children as well."

As Sacril raises his hand slightly, it faintly glows silver.

"No no no no NO!" Sacril exclaimed in a mixture of frustration and anger. Poison, not disease, something that had to be deliberate. Something tainted introduced to the water, just as all the other domes that the soulless had taken. Looking at Sonya, Sacril tried to work out what to say, how to arrange the words, but for once, he felt the need to actually show some sensitivity, and he really wasn't used to it.

"This... well... not... it's... ah... this... it's poison... in the food and water, I need... to alert some people, see if people can fix the damage."

Stumbling a bit, Sacril knocks into one of the water buckets, and some of the water ends up on his arm. Now noticing the wisps of smoke coming from his slightly dissolving arm. He looks more concerned about the fact that people have been drinking this, rather than his imminent need for healing.

"Those... bastards..."

**Sacril is almost... fascinated to see a red cross formed by the blistering blood on his arm, and a small D right underneath**
