Introduction

Image


A man in a cloak fades from the bright city lights into the darkness of the forest in the outer-limits. He pulls his hood over his head to keep him dry from the slight trickle of rain that is beginning to fall from the midnight sky. I t is completely dark out, and there are no stars or moon to guide his way, but he does not need light to know where he is, he can tell because of the pulling sensation on his soul. The spirits are calling out to him, and they are restless.

From the pedestal in the middle of a dark clearing he picks up a wooden box and stared at it for a moment. With a flourish he throws his hood off of is hear and lets it become wet with rain. He opens the box. Inside is the deck of the most important cards in the world, twenty-two in total. The Major Arcana, the cards of fate.

And with the opening of that box, the souls that inhabited the cards rushed out to join with souls of deserving humans, becoming hosts of human life and giving their chosen counter-part special powers that related to their meaning. Ever since that Platinum Night, the souls of the Arcana have inhabited the souls of people with attributes much like their card, and over the years the card-holders have joined together under the same roof to keep each other safe and keep their powers secret.



Image
You live in the Platinum Manor out on the countryside, about twenty miles out from the city, and you live with the other card-holders, some are your friends, and others are your enemies.

Lucas paid little intention to the things that happened in the darkness, not out of impoliteness, he just let everyone do there own thing, it was only after Aspel was departing , and shio had dimly filled the room with improvised lights, that he refocused attention back into the room. " The lights should not take long to fix.."

As if on cue, Liliana made her way through the room to carry out her duty of fixing the lights. " ..Especially when the one fixing them does not mind being electrocuted by the outdated wiring" His words were meant in a light hearted manners as always, but his near monotonous voice often made that hard to tell. Seeing the lights start to flicker, he took a sip of his coffee, hearing the exlamation of the finished job. " Took longer then last time." he said again meaning it in a lighthearted sense, but it would be doubtful anyone could tell the difference.

Shio smiled and looked at the man with the sunglasses.
"I wonder how long it took the first time."
Despite her initial fear of him, the sunglasses man didn't seem to want to hurt her. This had comforted Shio. She then slapped herself on the forehead.
"Oh, duh! I completely forgot!! God, I'm an idiot... This is what happens when Aika's not here to guide me. Well, Sunglasses Man, since I said my name, could you please tell me yours? Also what's your arcana? Mine's the Sun... But you probably figured it out, huh?"
Shio laughed a little bit and fiddled with her hair in embarrassment. This action caused the previously lit torches to disappear.

Apsel had seen the power go on.
"Oh, well that's convenient. Come, Achak. I'm sure you're aware of the new residents. Why not introduce yourself?"
Apsel helped to guide Achak down to the kitchen, dead deer and all. When Apsel and Achak had arrived at the kitchen, they noticed that only Shio, Mattrim and Lucas were there. Apsel smiled warmly.
"This is Achak. He's also one of our residents."
Shio was about to give her traditional hug attack with her introduction but stopped upon seeing the dead deer on Achak's shoulder. Her eyes widened as a flashback appeared in her mind.
"Big Bro, I'm scared..."
Shio stared as her mother shook on the hospital bed. Her brother stood beside her as they both watched a potentially fatal operation to replace her mother's heart. Her elder brother, Hisashi, allowed Shio to cling to him. Their father refused to attend the surgery.
"It's okay, Shi... Just... Just don't look at it, alright?"
Despite the advice, Shio couldn't look away. The blood was a brilliant scarlet and seemed to stain the white bed. Her normally cheery eyes were filled with both tears and fright. She could hear the erratic "beep, beep, beep" of the monitor keeping track of the heartbeat. Then it all went silent. That was Shio's first experience with death and it had made its mark.

"A-Ah...!"
Shio had backed away at this point and then hid behind sunglasses man for safety. She was still reeling from that flashback and needed to take a few minutes to calm down with someone. Unfortunately, Aika still needed time before she could come out again. Apsel for his part looked at Shio in confusion.
"What's wrong, Miss Naona?"
Shio didn't answer... She was still thinking about the bed turning red and how she lost her mother.

Adira thanked Noah as she retrieved the book from Noah. "You're welcome." Noah said with a nod. Noah then wondered what to do next, it's too dark to read at the moment. He walked to the windows and looked at the view outside. A while after viewing the scenery outside, he could see the lights starts to flicker back on. Seeing that the power is back on, Noah turned back to his seat and grabs the recipe book to continue reading it.

A while after, he couldn't found the food that he really wanted to cook, instead he would probably just cook whatever that pops in his mind. He stood up and looked at Adira.

"I guess I'm just going to cook whatever that goes in my mind." He said before walking away from the library.

"Though I have to say, if you read that, you might not just predict what those newcomers might be like... I'll just leave you to read it then." Noah turned to Adira one last time before pushing the door.

Noah went back to his room. He took his leather jacket and a helmet that were on the floor. He thought that maybe he could have something to cook after a trip to the groceries. Well, I don't think I'd go to the groceries alone... Maybe I'll take someone along with me? Noah looked at another helmet on the floor. Thinking whether he should take someone along to the groceries or not.

Making her was through the dim house Valeria tried to adjust her eyes to the dark. Needless to say it didn't work quite as she imagined it and a moment later she walked right into a coffee table and nearly fell. She continued towards the staircase. As she was passing by the front door loud steps, it was hard to see anything in the dark but she saw contours of a rather large person. No, no there's nothing there, just my eyes playing a trick on me. She convinced herself but still ran upstairs as fast as she could.
"Will?" She called out to the darkness in front of her. Thankfully Valeria managed to reach his room without bumping into or knocking down anything. A moment or so after she entered the room the lights flickered back and Valeria was met with a half dressed William. A small blush crept onto her cheeks and she lowered her head. "Um.. I don't mean to rush you..." Kept her gaze low not meeting William's face, or any other part. "... but you are really needed downstairs. I remember when I arrived you were the first to greet me and explain everything but I think one of the newcomers doesn't even know he's a holder so they could use some explaining."

William had been forced to wait it out until the lights came back on. "Will?" came another voice outside the room, and half a second later he heard the door open again.'Can't anyone bother to knock anymore? He grumbled to himself. He turned towards where he heard the voice from, trying to make out who it was when the lights came back on. The flash blinded Will for a few seconds and he had to rub the blurriness out of his still tired eyes.

"Um.. I don't mean to rush you..." She said as Will's vision started to return. "... but you are really needed downstairs. I remember when I arrived you were the first to greet me and explain everything but I think one of the newcomers doesn't even know he's a holder so they could use some explaining."

"New arrivals?" Will asked. Then his eye's lit up and his earlier annoyances were forgotten. "Oh that's wonderful news!" And without thinking he rushed over and gave her a hug in his excitement. "Quick, tell me" he started as he released her, "Who are they, how many are there, what are they're names, what do they look like!?" Then he paused, and recollected himself. "Oh, it's still morning. They're probably hungry from their trip. I suppose I should try to help fix breakfast and explain everything over a morning meal." Then he looked down at himself again. "But maybe not before I get some proper clothes on."

Bear had heard footsteps coming towards him and once he felt the presence in front of him, he instantly recalled whose voice was talking to him. "Avsal. Hunt good. Big deer for feast." He shifted the deer back onto his shoulder and sheathed back his axe into the holster. "Need... skinning."

Apsel told him that the new guest arrives and it would be a good idea for him to introduce himself. Bear seemed to understand that he should greet the new guest as well, thinking that it would be wise to get his pipe from the tent first. But Apsel ended up dragging him to them already. The whole house lit up again and he sees two unfamiliar faces in the group of familiars. Bear had picked up which are the new residents and gave them his traditional greeting. He placed his fisted hand on his chest and tapped it twice, a signal of peace and welcome.

The crowd was a bit silent and one of them looked like she was going to approach him but froze like a statue. "Oi, oi. I think you scared the poor child. She looks very much like a stone sculpture from the looks of it." Bear just nodded in recognizing the voice's will. "Avsal, I will skin meat." He left the group with a sort of bow and walked out of the kitchen exit into the backyard.

Adira flipped through the pages for a short while, she supposed that she could read the book later while trying to sleep. Everything would have to be a bit more calm downstairs now. After a while, Noah rose to his feet, Adira diverted her attention on the book to him.
I guess I'm just going to cook whatever that goes in my mind.
He said and made his way out of the library. Adira smiled.

Bye,
she said. However, he hadn't yet left, Noah turned to her once more.

Though I have to say, if you read that, you might not just predict what those newcomers might be like... I'll just leave you to read it then.
Noah said to her before leaving the room. Adira stood completely still for a moment. Wait, what is that supposed to mean? She closed the book and supposed that she might as well leave, still confused by Noah's words. Is there something I'm not getting here? It could be something so simple...

Adira left the library and made her way to her room, she placed the book on her bed to ensure that she knew exactly where it was when she returned later. I could go back to the kitchen...I am hungr- Her stomach cut her off by growling. Yeah, that seems like a plan. Adira left her room and shut the door behind her before making her way down the stairs for the second time of the day and made her way to the kitchen, hoping to slip in unnoticed and take something to eat and run out of the room, or something like that.

" Yes i overheard what Arcana you possessed" he said, glancing quickly over to the boy to make sure his attention was in the room as Lucas did not like having to repeat introductions " I am Lucas Cavelier, holder of the 13th card in the major arcana.." a brief drag on the now almost finished cigar "..Death"

Seeing Aspel returned he waited for the breifest of moments before finally seeing Achak, and his impressive deer. " Your hunt went well this morning it would seem" he said towards Achak, though something caught his eye, it wasn't movement within his peripheral that took his interest, it was a sudden lack of movement. Turning his shaded gaze back to Shio, he raised a brow. The sudden freezing, which momentarily seemed to be all, but then the slow backing up, pretty much behind him.

" Aspel.. perhaps we should be more cautious about bringing still bleeding deer in front of the new residents..Blood and Death invokes different thoughts in everyone" shifting his position, he used his free hand and placed it gently on Shio's shoulder " Do you need a moment to gather your thoughts?"

Apsel was confused. Shio hadn't acted like this the first time he met her. He then saw Shio hiding behind Lucas.
'Perhaps... I may have messed up...'
His suspicions were confirmed when he heard Lucas tell him
"Apsel.. perhaps we should about bringing still bleeding deer in front of the new residents.. Blood and Death invokes different thoughts in everyone"
Apsel really did feel guilty. He hadn't meant to scare Shio. Although, different people had different balances. He had assumed too much again.
"You're right, Lucas... I apologize."
He then heard Achak speak to him.
"Avsal, I will skin meat."
With those words, Achak walked out of the room after a bow. Apsel turned his attention towards Shio.
"Miss Naona, I apologize. I didn't think about your past... I hope you can forgive me."

Shio was still reeling from the flashback. The bloodstained bed, the monitor suddenly going silent, her mother no longer being there... She started to shake and tremble, but something made her snap out of it. Or rather, someone... A hand was placed on Shio's shoulder. She looked up to see Lucas looking down to see Shio.
"Do you need a moment to gather your thoughts?"
Shio blinked and slowly nodded. She then heard Apsel's words to her.
"Y-Yeah... I'm sorry, it's just... I-I have to go."
Shio quickly ran out of the kitchen to get some fresh air. It turned out to do her some good. With no one to watch her, silent tears began to roll down. Shio darkly laughed at the tears.
"Stupid... Getting all worked up over a little blood and a memory... See what you did, Shio? You made everyone worry about you..."
The tears fell down quickly. Shio was silent for a moment before continuing to talk to herself.
"Death's inevitable... No one knows that more than Lucas... but I know it too."
Shio hugged her knees.
"Mom... I miss you..."
Shio wiped her tears and heard the door open. She noticed someone had followed her outside. Shio took a deep breath and turned around to see who had followed her.

Anastasia hadn't tried to leave her room. She wasn't hungry very much and she didn't see the need to interact with the others in the house. Usually she was bright and cheering, messing around with the others, but not today. Today she was feeling homesick. Ana didn't know where the feeling suddenly came from, all she knows is that she woke up feeling alone. Ultimately and utterly alone. Often her brother, Andre, would sleep in her bed knowing how much she hated being alone, but she couldn't get that. Not anymore. Andre was at home dealing with mom and dad by himself. Anastasia missed him terribly. As hours from the morning passed, she heard more people moving about the house. Talking, laughing, and trying to make best of what was going on.

A sigh escaped the girls lips. She wasn't ungrateful for where she was and who she discovered she was, but Ana missed her old life too. The times where she didn't have such a responsibility resting on her shoulders. Of course she isn't the only one and she isn't even one of the most important ones. Anastasia had no room to complain and she didn't. Any complaints or whining she kept to herself. At all times of the day. It was better that. Her eyes found the clock in her room and she groaned. She had been lounging around in this room for way too long. A cramp was starting to form on her body. After standing up she stretched her arms and legs, pulling on the muscles where the cramp lies. Moving toward her closet she changed out of her blue silk pajamas and put on normal comfortable clothes. The dark grey sweatpants hung low on her hips and the purple t-shirt clung to her body.

Her pigtails were tied up as usual and she left her room, shutting the door behind her. Her hallway was empty and that made her happy a little. Anastasia didn't know if she would be able to make small talk with anyone just yet. Her feet started taking her toward the music room. When she sat at the piano her fingers would dance across the keyboard and it made her smile. Right now she wanted to smile.

Matt was about to follow Liliana to help her restore the power but by the time he got to the doorway she had vanished down the lights were already behind to flicker and power back up. In that dim light Matt could see small arcs of electricity radiating from the blown fuse box but Liliana seemed to pay it no mind.

" ..Especially when the one fixing them does not mind being electrocuted by the outdated wiring" he heard Lucas saying from behind him. 'M-masochist' Matt thought to himself and then oh-so-casually backed away. Even if it did not bother her, she could very well be 'holding a charge' that would shock the next thing Liliana touched. Matt did not feel like having his heart stop just yet.... though when he turned around and saw a giant man with a dead deer across his back all his attempts seemed for not.

Breath in, breath out. Matt had always found that simple breathing technique settled his nerves. The man did not seem violent, but it was a bit unorthodox to bring a deer into the home.. especially when it was still dripping blood, making dark red splotches on what had to be an expensive floor once. Shio had reacted even worse than himself. She cowered behind Lucas who was, surprisingly, gentle with her though Shio ran out of the room regardless. Matt was starting to follow her when suddenly a piercing headache had him down to one knee. Gritty faces of men he did not know, bared steel and flashes of a reflection of a moon in an ever widening pool of blood. The stares of those same men, the light long-gone from their cloudy eyes.

Matt was panting for breath once the sights passed. 'That has never happened before' Matt thought to himself, even thinking the words hurt. His head felt like it was on fire and when he tried to stand his legs felt weak. "What in the hell is happening to me?" the words escaped before he could bite them back. Matt looked around the kitchen and paled slightly. This was bad, he couldn't let them know anything about this. Matt made as if to retie his shoelace and with much effort he pushed himself back up to his feet and leaned with his hip against the table. It made him appear casual, though truth be told the table was doing more work than his legs at keeping him standing.

"Would someone mind checking on Shio?" Matt suggested

Adira was now outside of the kitchen, she sighed slightly. It was a bit quieter than earlier, so going to grab something now would be probably be more successful, that way she wouldn't have to push through everyone if it ever became busy again. Adira had made the decision to get some fruit, it would be awkward if she was to prepare herself a complete meal in front of anyone in there, plus, she still had to introduce herself properly to the new arrivals.

I'm fairly certain there are some oranges in there... Adira thought before shrugging, she walking into the kitchen. There was some blood on the floor, which was a little concerning and she started to think about what she could've possibly missed while sitting in the library for a short while. She glanced over at the others in the room, there were still quite a few of them and it surprised Adira that they had been stood in the kitchen just talking. Or well, that was what she assumed they had been doing.

Adira grabbed an orange, though she was still quite distracted by the blood on the floor.
Um, why is their blood on the floor?
She asked slowly, staring in confusion. The girl started to peel the orange, disposing of the peels as she did so. Adira wondered if she had interrupted some form of conversation that was going on in the room, she hoped that asking about the mysterious blood wasn't too rude.
Is someone hurt or something?
She asked, it doesn't seem very hygienic to bleed all over the kitchen... Adira thought. Well I guess it isn't everywhere...it's just a puddle.

Apsel jumped back a bit.
"Oh, Adira... Um, that's because Achak went hunting and caught a deer. One of our new residents saw the blood and she went outside to calm herself down. Though, I am worried for her..."

Lucas watched as Shio stuttered back into life, before running out of the kitchen. Letting out a tsk sound he stubbed his cigar out on the side " When i suggested a moment i was not quite expecting her to go outside" Just as Lucas had said that he made his way slowly towards the kitchens exit, only stopping because he noticed Matt drop down, Turning his curious gaze he watched for a moment before noting the movements of retying a shoe lace " I will go.... lest she accidentally find Achak with her wandering"

Seeing Adria enter the kitchen, he nodded his head before walking to the door, just stopping short, so he was close to Aspel " Keep an eye out... these new ones seem to be keeping us busy" he said before walking out of the kitchen and head through the entrance of the manor to the large doors.

Opening one of the large doors he briefly squinted as his eyes took a moment to readjust the light, even with the sunglasses on it was a sudden change. Closing the door behind him he took a moment standing, scanning the area till he finally caught sight of Shio " Do not mind me... take the time you need... i am only here to guide to back once you are ready, or to answer the questions that may plague your mind"

Shio gasped a bit at Lucas's voice. She didn't expect that he would come. She expected Apsel or Matt. But... it was a nice surprise.
"O-Oh..."
Shio put on a weak smile to avoid worrying Lucas, though it was obvious that she had been crying due to her red eyes and soft tremble in her voice.
"I am only here to guide you back once you are ready, or to answer the questions that may plague your mind."
Shio stared up at Lucas.
"I do have a lot of questions, actually... But first... I think I owe you an explanation about why I ran out like that. When I was born, my mom had a pretty bad heart condition. She had to be confined to a hospital most of her life. Me and my big bro Hisashi would play by ourselves while Dad would stay by my mom's side. At first, it was fine. Mom could see me and Big Bro even if she was stuck in a hospital bed. But, when I was five, my mom decided that she wanted to try and live out her life. So she wanted to get a heart surgery so she could be a part of us. But..."
Shio trailed off. She took a deep breath and shakily said
"But... It failed. And what's worse is that the condition she had... it's hereditary. So, I'm on a time limit for the rest of my life. I think I only have a year left before I die... And... that's what I wanted to ask you about! I'm not going to ask you to turn back time so that I don't die or anything like that but... Can you teach me not to be afraid of death anymore? I'm going to die, I know I am... but I'm too scared to face myself. So, can you help me defeat my fears?"
Shio looked at Lucas dead in the eyes and came a little too close to him. Shio didn't notice how close she was to Lucas until she said her final sentence. She realized that her face was inches away from his. She backed away.
"Sorry, I get passionate... So, will you help me?"

Observing the weak smile, Lucas shook his head ever so slightly, the need to hold a facade always escaping him. Then again he knew because of his power and views that his emotional range was utterly diminshed from what it should be, going as far to say that it could very well border into psychopathy if not for the environment he was within.

Listening carefully to Shio's explanation he couldn't help but feel some of his questioned were answered, the comments earlier of hospital lights making more sense and generally things seeming more logical and understandable then they did earlier. Seeming intent on just listening it took up until the point she was apologizing for her proximity that he finally reacted, holding up a hand to try and halt her Apology.

" What you ask of me, may very well be beyond my capabilities... I lost my fears when i died.." a pause as Lucas was visibly trying to recall the years. " ..Eight years ago so i can only make assumptions" he said, almost too casually for someone being serious about an actual death. " Fight or Flight.... it seems to me you are caught between the two... you know you will tire if you run and it will eventually consume you.. but at the same time i wonder if you have found the right source of motivation to fight, despite its inherent risk." Turning of side ways, he raised an arm and roughly pointed his hand out towards the manor " In there may very well lurk the motivation you need, fear alone is not enough.. and who knows you may even find more than just motivation in there"

That had shocked Shio a bit.
'He's been dead for eight years?! No wonder he seemed so scary at first... That must be part of his power...'
Shio listened as carefully as she could to what Lucas was telling her. Even though they came out rather gruffly, she felt like he meant no harm and was only trying to motivate her to try to live for as long as possible. Even if she had given up hope before... it was almost like getting a second wind. She could at least try to live...
"I think I understand..."
By this point her smile fell off her face.
"Well then... even though I'm on a limit... I'll try to live however long I can. But... when the time does come, I won't run away."
Shio looked up with determination.
"Maybe I will find more than motivation... at least I can hope~"
Shio then took a deep breath.
"I think we should go back inside. Sorry to worry you and the others and... Thank you for the words."

Apsel turned his attention to the bloodstain on the floor. He sighed softly.
"Well then, I may as well clean up the mess."
Apsel wet a paper towel and cleaned up the blood. Ulrich really did work too much in his opinion and he wanted to help out around the house however he can. Besides, this was his fault so he should clean up. He then heard the door open and shut. Shio and Lucas had walked inside.
"Ah, Miss Naona. Are you alright?"
Shio nodded.
"Yeah, sorry for the over-reaction there. Let's just say that me and blood don't get along that well."
Apsel looked a little dejected.
"I'm terribly sorry."
Shio shook her head.
"You didn't know that well, right? It's fine~"
Shio then ran over to Mattrim.
"Ah?! You okay?? Here, Aika will help."
After some concentration, out popped Aika. Aika was a little worried for Shio. Even if she was only a dream, she could still feel and see every moment Shio goes through whether she's out or not. Aika mentally sighed.
'I'll confront Shio later.'
Shio then sent a wink in Aika's direction and gave a rather flirty tone.
"Ai~ You shouldn't keep your boyfriend waiting~"
Aika felt a blush creep up.
"H-He isn't my..."
Aika then sighed.
"Forget it... It's impossible to stop you once you get started. Where is Mattrim?"
Shio guided Aika's hand to Mattrim's shoulder.
"There~"
The moment Shio did that, her eyes caught a glimpse of Adira through her peripheral vision. A wide smile crept up her face.
"I don't think I introduced myself to you yet."
Shio walked over to Adira, held Adira's hand in both of hers, looked deep in Adira's eyes, smiled earnestly and announced
"My name is Shio Naona. I'm the Sun Arcana. It's nice to meet you~"

" ..Especially when the one fixing them does not mind being electrocuted by the outdated wiring" She heard Lucas say, and out of the corner of her eye she saw Matt shiver uncomfortably. She chucked and then grinned at him.

"It's just because my power happens to be that of lightning and electricity," She sent a zap up her arm to create a spark of lightning between her fingers and held her hand in the air. "Don't worry, I can control it so it won't shock you."

Liliana watched as Adira came into the kitchen and grabbed an orange to eat. She sighed, had Jude promised to make her a sandwich, she would have to find him and take him up on that promise. She bent down and finished the cleaning of the blood that Apsel had begun to clear up. Shio had re-entered now, and something was going on, Liliana was glad that it had been Lucas who had gone after Shio, out of everyone, he could always talk sense into people. Liliana stood as Shio introduced herself to Adira, and smiled at the girl who was eating the orange as if to tell her that the Sun Arcana girl held a lot of energy.

Liliana had to admit, though, this new girl really did brighten up the place. She sighed, deciding that before she got to work, which there wasn't a lot of anyway, she would rearrange the furniture in the living room again, she felt like it needed a change after being set up like it was for the past several months. She began walking out towards the room when she thought of something and pivoted back around on her heel.

"Before I go rearrange furniture, does anyone know what Bear is planning to do with that deer, should we worry?"

Adira watched as Apsel started to clean the blood from the floor. Whose idea was it to bring a dead animal in here anyway? She heard the door open and close, Adira finished the last of her orange segments and washed her hands quickly, they were awfully sticky. That was when the new girl and Lucas entered the kitchen, Adira nodded her head slightly at them.

"Ah, Miss Naona. Are you alright?" Apsel asked her and Adira wondered what had been going on, she was aware of the fact that the girl had ran off, but was unaware of the reasoning behind it...was blood really that bad to some people? Shio nodded at Aspel in response. "Yeah, sorry for the over-reaction there. Let's just say that me and blood don't get along that well." Adira didn't really feel like prying into the reasoning behind the fear of blood. Everything seemed to be quite confusing as Shio ran over to Matt, Adira just stood there feeling awfully clueless as to what on Earth was going on in this room.

After some sort of discussion with the imaginary person who Adira hadn't quite caught the name of, Shio turned to to look at Adira, the smile that crept onto her face was a little...creepy in a way, though Adira tried to avoid thinking that. "I don't think I introduced myself to you yet." Adira was approached by Shio, who grabbed her hands while smiling. This is not necessary at all, why is she holding my hands? This is confusing...just focus...introduce yourself... "My name is Shio Naona. I'm the Sun Arcana. It's nice to meet you~" Adira paused for a moment.
I'm Adira Dean...
She said slowly,
The Chariot - It's nice to meet you too,
Adira said with a smile.

The black spots that ran across the room would not vanish no matter how hard Matt tried to blink them away. Was this an aftereffect of that vision? Or was this one of the powers of someone in this manor. A quick glance around the room had Matt thinking it was the former. A metallic taste suddenly flooded over his taste buds and Matt lifted a hand to his nose, a small red smear on his fingers. Never a good sign.

Matt felt a hand on his shoulder and jumped, quickly wiping away the smudge and trying his best to keep the dizziness at bay. It appeared as though Shio had summoned Aika from wherever she had vanished to and she had found her way over to Matt. Shio certainly was perceptive to notice something wrong, she had not even been in the room during his collapse. Maybe it was something to do with her ability... or maybe Matt just looked even worse than he felt.

Adira, one of the women who had been in the kitchen earlier when Matt had first arrived, now sat at the table eating an orange before being pounced upon by Shio. A small smile crept onto Matt's face and he glanced at Liliana who had returned from her work and about the deer that had caused this whole scene.... what caused it..Matt honestly did not know what triggered the reaction. Clearly Shio had some aversion to blood, but Matt had been around blood before and never had an issue. Who were those men and women he had seen in his photo. Why did their deaths seem to weigh so heavily on him. They did not look like people of this age, they had been grittier and tougher than people of today's world.

"Um... If he is planning to make venison I know a few pretty good recipes.... but so far as cleaning the animal I am unfamiliar with the technique" Matt offered, though he honestly did not know if he intended to stay long enough to cook anything. It all depended on what answers he could get from William. If he was going to continue to collapse and suffer these aftereffects.. he may very well die before he could get the answers he sought here.

"New arrivals?" William's voice sounded excited and a bit surprised. Have Liliana and Apsel not explained why it was so important for the manor's owner to be up. "Who are they, how many are there, what are they're names, what do they look like!?" Valeria could barely keep up with Will's questions especially with Will hugging her very tightly."I'm not sur... two... Shio and Mat... short..." It was impossible to answer the inquires so fast. "Just go downstairs and see for yourself." She sighed, how can someone go from the laziest to the most hyperactive person on Earth in a matter of minutes. "Oh, it's still morning. They're probably hungry from their trip. I suppose I should try to help fix breakfast and explain everything over a morning meal." Valeria eyed the man and awkwardly pointed at his still half naked form. "But maybe not before I get some proper clothes on." She just nodded at Will and suddenly feeling like an intruder decided to slowly exit the room leaving William to dress himself in peace.
This was all a bit much Valeria, she didn't like being around new people. There were always little fragments of their lives floating around her head and giving her visions and they were rarely pretty. Approaching the stairs she swore she could smell blood? No, not again. She hurried downstairs, yes once again there was a trail of thick dark blood leading from the main entrance to the kitchen. It wasn't the first time Achak brought a carcase to the house but it was disturbing nevertheless. What if the new residents see him? Oh lord, they'll think we're all a bunch of lunatics.

Lucas nodded carefully listening to Shio, his words were not very inspiring, more his own musing spoken out loud, but such things were what people needed, to hear the situation translated via someone else. Often giving them more clarity of the matter. Hearing the suggestion of returning he stepped back towards the door, opening it with one hand and gesturing for her to go first " After you."

Entering back into the room, he noted both Aspel and Liliana cleaning up the blood stains. No damage seemed to be lingering between Aspel and Shio so in his mind everything had gone smoothly so far. In fact it was probably as coherent as the manor could be. Turning his gaze across to Liliana he pondered the question for a moment, even as the new guy chipped in with the fact he knew some recipes " He is not one to let any part of the animal go to waste, all harmless really.... unless of course he approachs the wrong person for help with the cooking" he said sliding his hidden glance across towards Liliana knowing full well she would take his words well.
