Vilen leaned against the a wall and crossed his arms, raising an eyebrow at Crys's offering him up to a fight. Detecting the joking tone in her voice, he visibly relaxed. Absently, he recognized Ali, though she didn't look all that great at the moment. He nodded a greeting to her, for the two of them were familiar with each other, before looking back at Crys.

"Hey, now ..." he murmured. "No harm was done. I mean you didn't even see - I mean sense - me, Crys." Due to Crys's acute awareness of basically everything and propensity to miss nothing, he never really considered her blind. Especially when she could pick him out in a crowd faster than he could pick her out. "No need to go pretending that you want me dead." Vilen smiled and could feel the bad looks as he did so. But he couldn't help it. For now he had escaped some consequences, and it wasn't like Vilen to think very far into the future. Besides, he figured by the time they got back to camp, Crys would have forgotten all about it. To tell the truth, he was positively ecstatic. It was extremely easy to ignore all of the tension in the room when he was feeling thus.

"Do you think we'll have to wait long for him to come back with ... whoever he's gone looking for?" Vilen asked absently as he wiped a speck of ash off of his shirt. His lack of attention to details often made him seem unfeeling, but he truly just hadn't been listening to what Crys had asked of Jacob. He was too preoccupied with the fact that he was momentarily off the hook. "I mean, if they're already heading back towards camp, wouldn't it be counterproductive to wait for him to find them, and then bring them all the way back here? We could just meet up with them at camp. Or perhaps even on the way if they're not moving too quickly." Naturally, Vilen was forgetting the rule about returning with all of the people you left with, but no one was surprised by that. "I'm only asking because we should get out of here. I managed to kill the majority of the soldiers at the inn, but doubtless, there will be more soon, and they will be looking for us. Staying in one place for too long seems ... unwise." Finally he looked up at Crys and remembered where he was and who he was with. "Just a suggestion, of course ..."
