Rowas stood on her toes, maintaining her balance as her mentor, Nanic Husck, moved around the room and instructing the other dancers to mimic her. She was very tired from the day before where she ran for miles and miles and practiced until her feet began to bleed and blister and also from the dream she had.

Libertat.

She knew what it meant, but she didn't know what to do about it. She wasn't even sure if the dream was just a dream or if it was a hallucination from being overworked. Either way, she was too tired and needed to focus on her current task, demonstrating a dance for the newest group of young dancers hoping to become the next famous dancer known around all the kingdoms of Khadian.

As Nanic circled the room again, she clapped her hands twice and Rowas began to move about the dance floor, gracefully sliding her feet or sailing through the air. Every dance has a story behind it and this one Rowas knew well. A young girl wanted freedom from the people who wanted to use her, to make her work everyday and she escaped the harsh conditions by creating tales of adventure in her head. Rowas performed this piece daily, but she never tired of it.

When the dance came to an end, the students clapped for her and Rowas left the room as Nanic began to teach them the correct positions and techniques to use. As she headed to collect her things and leave to get ready for a party, she played the dream over and over in her head. The woman in the dream was beautiful and looked regal and she wanted to give freedom to all the kingdoms. Rowas didn't know how that was going to happen.

Arriving at her small apartment, she cleaned herself of any sweat or grime that she collected that day and began to dress in a floor length silver dress with a raised shoulder piece on the left side and many jewels decorated the skirt. After pulling up her hair into a bun, she placed a silver crown that rested against her forehead and had beads of light blue that framed her face.

Arriving at the celebration was a spectacle as she was accustomed with. Many wanted to talk to her, but she was able to escape from any boring conversations and sought out more important conversations she wished to have with the elite of Xayen. But as she was making her way to elites, she felt a pull directing her towards the gardens outside. She veered off and headed towards the pulling feeling and found herself out in the crisp night air, staring at a piece of a larger jewel that had been split. Rowas stared at the shard for a while before deciding to reach down and touch it. She did not expect what would happen next.

Rowas felt like the wind was going to pull her apart, but just as it began, it ended. Her surroundings were completely different. Mountains rose up around her and two people were standing a few feet from her. She looked at their clothes and then remembered what she was wearing and felt overdressed for standing in a mountain range.

Looking down at her hand she still held the yellow and black shard in her right hand and still felt the tingling radiating from it. Not sure of the people in front of her, she slipped off her black and gold small gem covered heels and held them tightly to use as weapons if needed.

Rowas spoke in a harsh tone. "Who are you and how did I get here?"

With both Arwen's and Viola's words of encouragement, he touched the stone. Teleporting this time was less annoying then it was the last time. Maybe it was because Clive had been expecting it or maybe it had something to do with his new sword. He could already feel it amplifying his power, even though he was only carrying it. There was also the shard that he still clutched in his hand. The two combined with his shard seemed to hold more power then he had ever felt. Clive had no idea what power would come out of the shard they had just found or how it would work, but he was a bit hesitant to find out. Once he took stock to figure out everyone and everything came out in one piece, he looked around. They were next to a dimly lit cave on a mountain. Clive would know these caves anywhere, they were distinct to Donnally. He often went along with ambassadors whenever they came to any of the major kingdoms and the ambassadors always used these mountain trails. Despite the possible danger, It was actually quite a bit safer then other routs. Most bandits were afraid to go near the mountains and Clive's father had learned that fact long ago. Thanks to his father, Clive had something like a diplomatic immunity in Donnally to where they would not be able to arrest him just because of his magic. Despite that, most of the time Clive followed their customs and tried his best not to use his magic. He was trying to think of what to say to Viola to tell her where they were transported to when she spoke up.

"Do you know where we are?" It didn't sound like a question.

"We're in the Forbidden Mountains. Although only people from Donnally refer to them as such. The people believe that there are powerful creatures of magic and myth that live inside the mountain's many caves. That to enter, would mean certain death," She said.

"You have no idea." He muttered under his breath as he looked towards the cave to try to find out exactly where they were. He remembered not only that she came from Donnally, but also that she didn't know who he was. "Maybe I should tell her," he thought to himself.

"Although trade still exists between Terrowen and Donnally through the cave systems. Only the bravest and greediest of travelers pass through though," she continued.

And Diplomats, he almost said aloud.

A sad look crossed her face. "Did you know magic is forbidden here? That those who use it are sentenced to death and anyone who aids a magic user is executed as well?"

At this he actually did speak. "It's truly a tragedy." he said with experience.
"Where I come from anyone can use magic and nobody is discriminated against." Clive said while shaking his head. "Donnally needs to change." He said as if it was an actual option. He knew there was little he could do, but he hoped together with Arwen they could slowly change the world.

He pulled the small mirror out of his pocket and saw Arwen staring back at him,
"Where are you? Can you tell?" Arwen said without missing a beat.
"Thanks to Viola we know." He said with a smile, still not wanting to let Viola know just yet who exactly he was. "It looks like were in Donnally, near the Forbidden Mountains." He said into the mirror.

"What power do you think the stone holds?" Viola said. Clive looked down at the stone in his hand. "I have no idea but I'm sure we'll find out very soon." Just as he put the stone into the pocket opposite his blue stone, he heard another voice coming from a bit behind the group. In a harsh almost violent tone, the voice said,"Who are you and how did I get here?" Clive whipped around and immediately drew his non magical sword. As he turned, he looked the intruder over. She looked like she was dressed for a party. She wore a silver dress which went all the way down to the floor along with a skirt that was littered with gem stones. She had her heels in her hands, ready to use as weapons and a silver tiara type thing on her head. (He was never any good with jewelry) Clive had no idea what was going on. All he could say to her was, "Umm?" He looked over to Viola and that's when it hit him. "Do you think it was a shard?" he questioned Viola.

Viola stared off into the distance, watching the castle. Her mind began to wander back to her home. "Donnally needs to change." The boy said. His words snapped her back into reality. She opened her mouth to say something to him, but his attention had turned to the princess in the mirror. She had to admit she was a little envious of the boy. He found someone he was so devoted to. She had no one. No mother, no father, no siblings. No lover, no friends beyond her boss at the seamstress's shop.

There was a small flash of light, and when Viola turned towards it, she saw a girl dressed elegantly in a sparkling dress and heels. She gazed at them in a moment of confusion before she ripped off her matching sparkling shoes, and held them up like weapons. "Who are you and how did I get here?" she asked angrily. Viola laughed. "I think it's comical that you suspect us of bringing you here." Beside her Clive response was a single sound. "Umm?" He looked over to Viola who shrugged. "Do you think it was a shard?" He asked her.

"Well what else would it be?" She replied. She fished into her cloak pocket for the stone shard she had originally found and held it out to the girl. It was reddish-orange in color and about the length of a finger. "Do you have something like this? We were brought here to and we can explain why you were probably brought here, but you need to put down the shoes."

She waited until the girl did so before she asked, "Did you have a vision of a girl in a white dress and a stone?"

Rowas gripped her shoes tighter as the girl spoke. She has even laughed at Rowas for trying to defend herself at being thrown into a different place with strangers. She was offended, but as the girl continued to speak, she pulled out a shard that was about the size of a finger and glowed red and orange. It was similar to the black and yellow one she held in her palm. The boy still had his sword pointed at her and she wasn't sure what he could do with it if provoked.

"Do you have something like this? We were brought here to and we can explain why you were probably brought here, but you need to put down the shoes," the girl spoke to Rowas and glanced at the shoes held in her hands.

Lowering her hands, she released her shoes and they made a small 'thump' as they landed. Once they were on the ground the girl spoke again.

"Did you have a vision of a girl in a white dress and a stone?"

Rowas almost took a step back, but she didn't want the strangers to know that they scared her with the knowledge of her dream. The piece of stone she had still radiated tingles throughout her body and she slowly opened her palm to show the others. In a less hostile tone Rowas said, "How do you know about the dream? And how did I arrive in these mountains? I was in a garden."

Viola visibly relaxed. She tucked the stone back into her pocket and sat before the girl. She looked back, noticing that Clive still had his sword drawn and motioned for him to stop and join her, more for the comfort of the new companion than her own. She looked back to the girl and motioned for her to sit as well. It would be easiest to explain if they were all where they could see each other and she would not be interrupted by worries about being attacked with a sword or shoes. Once everyone was sitting around her, she began to explain to the girl their journey so far:

"I'm Viola and this is Clive." She glanced at him, making sure he was okay with her giving away that much information about him. She could tell he was a secretive person considering he shared very little with her. Then she looked back at the new girl and continued. "Last night..." She paused. Was it really only last night they had seen the princess? That only this afternoon they had found the stones? She shook her head and continued. "Last night, Clive and I--and a few others--found ourselves locked in a dream occupied by a woman in white who revealed herself to be Princess Arwen of Hannival. Earlier today, we found these stone shards that transported us by means we didn't originally understand to The Glass Tower in the middle of Marsden. There we met a mage who explained his theory that we were chosen to bring the stone back together. To protect the world from those who wish to use the Everstone, the stone that gives the world magic, for terrible deeds.

He also told us that there was one shard in the tower and Clive and I set off to find it. The others stayed behind for whatever reasons they had. We found another stone that Clive now possesses and it took us here, to the Forbidden Mountains just inside Donnally's boarders. Each stone holds a specific power that was granted to the world by the Everstone as a whole. For example,"
She closed her eyes, and snapped. A small flame bloomed on her hand, but did nothing to harm her skin or her clothing. "This is the power my stone grants. And if Clive so chooses, he can show you his. We have yet to discover what the new stone does and I'm sure you are unaware of what yours does."

Dark clouds were forming in the sky and the air rumbed with thunder as lightning struck not too far from their perch on the cliff. The sun was also beginning to set on the horizon and it would be dark soon. There was no time to seek refuge in a town or village and there was no guarantee that they would be able to find this cave if they left for other shelters. So they would have to stay in this one and prey there was nothing inside that would harm them. She looked to her new companions and said, "We need to stay in the cave tonight." Her eyes rested on Clive and said, "I know it's not ideal, but we don't have much of a choice." She stood and made her way into the cave, creating light with her fire to aid their vision.

"By the way," she added, "Care to tell us a little about yourself?"





The Princess watched and listened from her mirror. Thankful that it seemed Clive's companion, Viola, knew where they were. She was probably more knowledgeable of their surroundings than the others. Others because it seemed they were joined by another. It was growing late, and soon they would need to sleep. She felt more awake than ever in her life and she wondered if, as a spirit, would she even need to sleep?

Rowas sat across from Viola and listened to her story and how her and Clive arrrived in the mountain range. After she finished the story, Viola rose and said " We need to stay in the cave tonight. I know it's not ideal, but we don't have much of a choice." Her flame powers that came from the shard and began to move into the cave.

As she walked farther in, she asked, "By the way, care to tell us a little about yourself?"

Deciding that they were in the same situation as she was, Rowas started to tell them a little about herself.

"My name is Rowas and I am a dancer in Xayen. I was at a party before I noticed a stone and when I touched it, I was transported here by magic. And you two are dressed much better for this than I am."

Following her farther in the cave, Rowas kept kicking out the dress so she didn't trip. She wished that she wasn't at that party when she found the shard. She would've been dressed more sensibly. She would feel less embarrassed and less useless. She only had her shoes and her fighting skills but she never had any magic and she wouldn't even begin to know how to use her own shard.

Viola listened as Rowas introduced herself. "Wow, Xayen. I've never been there. I've heard there's so much to do and see. Being a dancer must be exciting. More exciting than living in a wa--uh--being a seamstress." She nearly told them more about herself than she had meant to. She didn't want their pity when they found out she was an orphan who stole for most of what she needs besides working with the seamstress. "I'm from Donnally. In case.. that wasn't clear."

Rowas made a comment on her dress and she thought for a moment. Then she had an idea. She took a dagger from her boot and took a step towards the girl. "How about we cut the hem? That way it allows you to move around better. Then we can wrap your feet in the excess so you don't cut your feet on stones from the cave."

Once she had the girl's permission, she went to work on the dress. She was used to cutting fabric when she worked with the seamstress so the cuts were smooth. She even cut a slit up the sides a ways and kept the fabric from fraying by heating them with her fire. When she was finished, she stood back and admired her work. "There. How is that?"

Rowas was amazed as Viola worked with her dress. Her hands were steady, as she expected due to her working with a seamstress

"Thank you. It's much better. Can you tell me where we are? I do not get many opportunities to explore the kingdoms."

Rowas was still following Viola through the caves, only illuminated by the fire that was summoned by her. The caves were daunting if you looked too far ahead, not knowing what was just ten feet in front of you. Rowas enjoyed Viola's company and that of Clive, even though he had been silent throughout most of the time she was with them. As he followed them, sometimes Rowas felt like he was more daunting that the caves, not talking, just watching the area around them.

Viola seemed like a nice person, albeit a person with secrets. She stopped herself from saying certain things and Rowas could see her thinking everything over before speaking. And Rowas felt a connection to her, but she didn't know what kind of connection. It just felt like being with her was right, like it was destiny that pulled the group together.

Shaking her head, she stopped those thoughts in their tracks. She wasn't sure about destiny or fate or anything like that. All she knew was that she had to strive to get where she was a dancer and destiny might have given her an extra push, but she was the one who got herself to succeed.

The storm was vicious. The wind whipped around, making howling sounds float towards them and the smell of rain as well. She enjoyed that smell. The howling grew louder as the storm raged on and as they went further into the mountains, looking for a place to stay the night.

Viola moved further into the caves, hoping that there would be an end and they wouldn't have to watch their backs as the slept. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. She sighed and came to a spot she figured would be both dry and yet close enough to the front of the cave for a quick escape. When she sat down, she explained, "We're in the Forbidden Mountains." She felt a twinge of annoyance considering not long ago she had explained it to Clive, but quickly realized that Rowas hadn't appeared yet and, therefore, missed the entire conversation. She felt bad for the feeling but she was exhausted. She did leave out the fact that monsters were known to roam the mountains. No use scaring the girl since they would be saying inside them. She turned to Clive and said, "You go ahead and rest. I'll take the first watch." She didn't know why she offered, but she just felt it was right. She wasn't entirely sure she trusted the girl, and was still unsure about Clive even though they had shared a little more together than with Rowas.

Maybe after a night of watching his back, he would be more inclined to watch hers.

Clive's first thought wasn't what it should have been. He should have been thinking of his safety or the possibility of Viola's betrayal but all he could think of was how tired he was. Maybe it had something to do with all the teleporting they were doing. Another possibility which was the most likely option was the fact that everything they did in the last several hours was both exciting due to being new and required their full attention. He quickly looked towards Rowas then back at Viola. "Wake me when you get tired or if you need help." he said quietly. Clive didn't want to be overly suspicious but from what he had seen of Viola so far she was a bit too trusting of strangers. He knew this included himself, but you could never be too careful when it came to sleeping. He knew the princess would be with him throughout the night and that would help him relax more then he had before but relaxing too much with a potential threat couldn't be all good. Clive also knew what the princess would say about him being overprotective but he wouldn't be able to hide his thoughts from her. As he walked across the cave he pulled out the mirror. He smiled when he saw Arwen's face staring back at him. "There is so much I want to ask you about but it needs to wait until later, for now I'm just happy you're with me." He said while holding back his sadness. He thought she might have been killed based on what he had seen in the vision but despite that he swore not to stop until he found out the truth. Now the most important questions have been answered and they had their quest. The Quest for the Everstone!

As he looked for a place to rest he got a good look around the cave. He could hear the wind and rain in the background as the group set up camp. (What little they could) The entrance to the cave was battered with water from the storm that raged outside so the group was beginning to set up camp in an area that was a bit more dry. The only problem seemed to be that the cave seemed to go all the way through which meant they could be flanked by the thieves or monsters that dwelled in the mountains. "How nice it would be to control my power over earth again," He thought as he reached for the new shard they had just recovered. Clive fished it out of his pocket and took a closer look. With the faint light of the fire he could see its color. It was a dark brown color which, now that he looked at it closely he could tell it seemed familiar. He brushed the tip of the shard with his right finger and as if on cue it started to quiver. The shard sent some kind of pulse into the earth releasing his power back to him and the next thing Clive knew walls of rock seemed to be sprouting up all over in front of him. The earth effectively blocked the entire cave in front of the group from the elements. He stared at it in awe. He turned around and looked at both Viola and Rowas. "I think I found out what the new crystal does." He said as he held it up for them to see. He finally felt whole again.

The Princess was getting dizzy watching the world move on the other side of the surface. She decided to look elsewhere until she was addressed once more by her handsome prince. Which he did not too long after the spinning stopped. "There is so much I want to ask you about but it needs to wait until later, for now I'm just happy you're with me." She could practically feel him cradling the mirror in his hands as if he were cradling her. Heat rose to her cheeks, but she reached for the surface of the mirror, her palm flattening on the smooth, cold glass. "You know you can ask me anything you want, my love. Although, I would prefer you get some sleep first. You're grouchy when you're tired." Her eyes crinkled at the corners as she smiled at him. Not a soft sad smile, but a bright one. "And I'm so happy to see you again. I was worried what would happen once I released the stone. I wasn't sure Roderick would try to go after you or if you were helping in the caves when the magic stopped and--" She cut herself off, the thought of him possibly dying in the caves because his magic was gone broke her heart and filled her pale eyes with tears. "I'm so sorry.."

His attention was elsewhere now. She could see his face, but his eyes were on something else. There was courteousness glittering there and possible longing. She wanted to ask him, but his eyes suddenly went wide. The mirror was shaking in his grasp and his head turned quickly to the side. "I think I found out what the new crystal does." He said, turning his head the other way, possibly talking to his companions. "What? What does it do?" She asked curiously.





Viola stood and began pacing once Clive agreed to allow her first watch. "Wake me when you get tired or if you need help." If she stayed sitting she feared she would fall asleep. She was in the middle of thoughts about possibly going further into the cave to see where it lead when the ground began to tremble. At the mouth of the cave, blocking out the moonlight, a slab of earth grew up. Vines and dirt creating a wall against the outside. She stood and stared in awe, her mouth forming a silent o. "What the hell?" She said out loud. She moved towards the wall just as Clive turned to her. The movement caught her attention and she tore her gaze from the wall. The stone was in his hand and his eyes were wide, but there was something like joy on his face. "I think I found out what the new crystal does." He said to her. Earth. He got his magic back.

Rowas had just reached the ground when vines and dirt began to grow and make a wall. She scooted backwards in surprise and looked between the others. Clive had done it with the green shard he held in his hand.

"I think I found out what the new crystal does," he said. Earth. That was really useful.

"Mind making a bed for me to sleep on?" Rowas asked and cracked a goofy smile. The floor was not as comfy as her extremely large bed at home that was covered in hundreds of pillows.

When Arwen told him to go to sleep he had almost passed out right there. "Don't apologize, you did what needed to be done." He said to the mirror.

After the wall rose, the look of shock quickly left his face. Replacing it was a look of completeness. He somehow got his power back which meant he didn't have to fear doing something with magic that he couldn't completely control. A big smile spread across his face. Arwen questioned what kind of power the shard possessed and he replied,"Earth." Before he could go into more detail, he heard a voice speaking from the other side of the room but it took a second to register what she had said. He assumed she had said it as somewhat of a joke but he thought about it seriously for a moment. He still had the dark brown crystal in his left hand. He didn't know if his plan would work but he was going to try something that they hadn't done yet, combine the two shards power. Clive pulled the blue shard out of his right pocket and squeezed them both tight. The first thing he wanted to do was get them a decent source of drinking water for the night. He waved the brown shard at the wall he had made and willed it to obey his command. The first bit was what they could see from the inside. The earth was slowly pulled out of the wall and coerced into taking shape at Clive's command. It smoothly pulled itself from the wall and landed on the floor in front of him. It began to spin into a circle and raise back off the ground until it began to take its final shape. What was left standing there when he was done was something like a fountain without the spout. Instead it was a large, smooth bowl that could hold a decent amount of water. From the side of the bowl there was a tube made of the very same rock which led up towards the wall. What they couldn't see was what was going on outside. On the outside he had the tube lead up into the sky and fan out into a much larger funnel to catch the rain water. As he finished his first idea, he raised his second shard into the air towards the bowl. The water that trickled in was pushed back up and down the tube to smooth it out and clear it of any excess rock. He then cleared out the bowl the same way to ensure that any water that was fed into the cave was crystal clear and very drinkable.

He turned around to look at the girls. "A bed huh? I should be able to manage something relatively comfortable." He said with a smile. "At least something more comfortable then the floor, although I don't know what to do in replace of pillows." He said unsure of weather or not they would need to get that comfortable. Clive pulled up the brown shard again and willed the ground once more to obey his will. In two different spots near the fire, he made the ground move back and forth against itself. Before his eyes it became as ground as sand and still he didn't stop. The granules got more and more broken up until it reached the state he wanted it to be in. He reached down and touched the sand and his fingers sunk in with no resistance. Now he raised the blue shard and water slowly fed to him from across the room where the bowl sat. The water slowly went to the bottom of the pile of sand as far as his fingers went in. The results became a soft yet resilient mud in the form of a mat. The mud was woven in a way that allowed it to stick to itself yet not have the other qualities of regular mud. He put his hand on the newly formed mat and felt its softness. It wasn't a high class bed, but it was a lot better then sleeping on the cold hard floor. He thought about it for a second and maybe the duo would have second thoughts about laying in mud. Just for dramatic effect he figured he'd lay down on the mat to show them it wouldn't stick to their cloths. He got back up and turned around to show them that his back was dirt free. "I hope thet'll work for you because it's the best I can do with what I have." The prince said as he turned around to head back to his sleeping area. He put both stones back into his pockets and held up the mirror once more. "Before you say anything I didn't mean to show off." He said to Arwen only barley believing his own lie. The truth of the matter was he was overjoyed to have his power over earth back and using it after not having it for a time was intoxicating. He looked away, trying not to let her read everything that he was thinking from his face. He looked over at the two girls to make sure they were out of earshot then sat down. He rested his back to the wall and looked at Arwen again. "I miss you." He said finally. "I haven't told them who I am yet but I'm guessing Viola is already putting the pieces together." Clive looked away. He moved some small rocks around in front of him with his powers. "I didn't want to tell anybody who I was because I didn't know if I had the power to make sure nothing could get in my way if an opportunity to save you came up!" He felt guilty about lying and he knew Arwen would be able to tell. He looked back into her eyes and he could tell she knew him better then he knew himself. "I am yours! Just tell me what you want me to do." Clive said with finality. He didn't care how difficult the tasks she would ask him to do in the future were but whatever they entailed he would not fail! The only demand he would never obey was for him to give up on her.

Rowas laid down on the mat Clive had created, which was more comfortable than the floor but not as nice as her bed back home. Rowas rolled over and heard Clive talking to someone. But there wasn't anyone other than the three of them in the cave. Frowning, she sat up onto her elbows and tried to figure out what was going on or who he was talking to. He was holding a mirror.

Getting Viola's attention by tossing a pebble at her, Rowas asked, "Why is he talking to a mirror?"

Viola jumped, pulling a blade from her boot and spun around. She was so alert that she didn't think of the possibility that one of her companions would... toss a rock? She saw the pebble roll to a stop beside her and smacked herself in the forehead. She stuck the blade back into boot and sighed. You're being ridiculous, she thought as she sat back down and replied to the thin eyed dancer. "You remember the girl from the vision? We thought she was dead, but it turns out she's trapped in the mirror realm until we can put the stone back together. That mirror allows us to communicate with her. As for why he's talking to her instead of resting is because they're well acquainted." She spoke louder in the middle of her last comment to emphasize the fact that the boy should be sleeping.

She wasn't angry she just knew that he needed rest. That and, she was pretty sure the boy and the princess were lovers which Viola was still trying to wrap her head around. He was from Terrowen and the princess is from Hannivall. The only way that Clive could possibly know the princess is if he was either a nobleman or the prince of Terrowen. She glanced back at the boy and looked him up and down. Probably a noble. There was no way a prince could be so sweet. Not in a world like theirs. "You should rest too. I know Xayen is a few hours behind Donnally and you're probably not tired, but rest on a quest such as this is important. You never know what you might be doing and having energy is important." She said to Rowas. Viola's stomach growled quietly. And food." When was the last time they had anything to eat?

It was very quickly obvious that her plan had failed. She had scared the two. The girl reached into her pocket and pulled out.. a light? Viola closed her eyes and even blocked the light with her hand, but she could still see the shine. She knew what it meant and she was happy to be right. Their footsteps disappeared behind her as they ran past. She sighed. Well.. so much for that plan. she thought. Then she realized they were running towards where the others were and cursed to herself before taking off after them. Her companions were about to get a scare which would only scare the two neophytes more. And that wouldn't help anything.

She had just entered their cave when the boy screamed about dead bodies and the girl looked around in fear. They probably looked like quite a sight. A girl with thin eyes and a sparkling dress that was a little ragged at the edges. A boy who clutched a mirror beside a wall of vines and dirt. And a sleep deprived thief with a fiery arm appearing before them in the dark. Yeah... that could've gone better... I should've really thought that one through.

She walked further into the cave and stopped before the two. She kneeled down before them and held out both of her hands. She stashed away her knife showing she wouldn't harm them and her fire had disappeared leaving only the reddish-orange stone behind. "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to frighten you. I haven't... slept yet so my mind is a little.. dull. Do you have a stone like this one? Did you see the princess?" She realized that this was probably a lot for the two to take in at once. She noticed just how small the boy was and pulled out a treasure she had taken just the other day at the market. A small wooden figurine of a horse. She didn't know why she kept it or even wanted it. She wasn't a big fan of horses and it wasn't like she was collecting carvings. "Here. A peace offering. My name is Viola. I'm from Donnally." She gestured to her companions. "That's Rowas from Xayen. She's new to the group, too. And Clive from Terrowen. What about you two?"

Arwen almost had Clive asleep when the newcomers came around the corner. He didn't even have enough time to react as they tripped over him, kicking him in the chest. He felt the pain but quickly rolled over and grabbed his sword. He was about to draw it when he saw for the first time what he was dealing with. There was a scared little boy as well as what seemed to him as a fragile girl trying to be tough in the face of danger. Clive's anger quickly faded as he paused to get a better look at the duo. He recognized them from Terrowen but he couldn't place their names. For a moment he forgot all about what he had just revealed to Arwen. Instead of trying to figure out who they were he silently hoped they wouldn't recognize him. He never thought there could be a down side for trying to help so many people from his kingdom so often. Clive wasn't sure having more people on their quest would be a good thing. The more people they had meant more people he had to protect as well as increase the chance of betrayal. He almost scoffed to himself at the thought. "There was no way these girls would turn out to be traitors," He thought to himself. He looked back into the mirror and told Arwen what had happened based on what he had heard. As he spoke, he could see Arwen's eyes light up at the thought of more assistance for the quest. Clive knew the princess was too trusting but he also knew there was nothing he could do about it. He held the mirror up towards the group to let the princess introduce herself.

Viola smiled as the boy took the small figure from her and then grinned at the girl. "So you're a part of the quest now, too, huh? Welcome to the group." She said as she motioned to her companions, shrugging off sleep. "Each stone has a special power. I guess we discovered what yours does...and mine." she added sheepishly. Again, she hadn't meant to frighten them. The might be a thief but scaring children was not part of her repertoire. Clive muttered to himself and then started explaining to Arwen in the mirror what had occurred. She was about to explain to Altair and Carina what he was doing, when he held up the mirror to the group.





The Princess was overjoyed at the fact more had been added to the quest. She was a little distraught that the latest seemed to have brought a young child with her and she hoped that it was for good reason. This was a dangerous journey and no place for a child. But, she still put on a smile and introduced herself to the group. "Well look at all these faces!" she chirped. "It's a pleasure to meet those new to the cause. My names is Princess Arwen Alondriell of Hannivall. I have summoned you all for a quest to give the world back it's magic at the sacrifice of my soul--which is trapped in the mirror realm. It was to keep the stone safe from a betrayal in my court." She frowned and her hands tightened into fists. "This is a dangerous mission. I'm not going to sugar coat it for our younger audience. Can you protect him?" She asked the girl who appeared to be his sister.

Carina and Altair listened to the others talk and watched the girl in the mirror. Carina listened as the Princess talked about the younger audience, which she knew meant her brother. You're seriously asking me if I can protect him?!?" she said with anger in her voice. "He shouldn't even be here! But for some reason when I touched the stone since he was touching me it pulled both of us here! You act like this is my fault! She said as she stood up helping her brother up off the ground. "I remember the vision with you in it. How was I supposed to know that touching that stupid stone would bring him with me?!? I would have made sure he wasn't anywhere near me! He needs to go home! I can protect him against dangers..but not against.. Before finishing she trailed off looking at her brother with a frown on her face. "She's very good at protecting me against things trying to hurt me, but she can't protect me against my own sickness. he said looking back at his sister. He walked towards her and hugged her. "She's very protective over me, so please don't get mad at her for freaking out." he said looking at the others around them.

Rowas had just rolled over when someone stumbled into where they had made camp for the night. She sat up quickly and did inventory of who was there; Clive, Viola, Rowas, and two new people. With that she stood up quickly and put her back to the wall. Viola made introductions and gave the young boy, Altair, a small horse figurine.

Her mind was still reeling from finding out the princess from her vision was trapped in a mirror and Clive was talking to her as if it was normal. She was so confused and grew more confused by the second.

While still leaning against the cave wall, Rowas said, "So you are his older sister, Carina and Altair's sick and now you are both here, with another shard, to help us put the Everstone back together? And the Princess of Hanivall is trapped in a mirror that Clive talks to as if that is normal. Am I the only one that thinks that this is the weirdest situation ever!?" Her voice kept growing louder and when she ended, she was close to shouting.

"Carina can we help her please? She seems to really need it." Altair said looking at his sister with sadness in his eyes. Carina looked down at her brother and sighed. "Altair we need to go home. Your medicine is there and you need that medicine." She said putting a hand on his arm. "No! That's not right Carina and you know it! Since when have we ever put ourselves before other people? Never!" Altair said jumping up his voice getting louder. "I know that Altair but it's different when we have your medicine on hand. But what happens when you have an attack? What happens if I can't stop the attack?" She said looking at him. "Then I'll die! But I'd rather die trying to help someone then die doing nothing at all!" he yelled at her pushing her hand off his arm. Carina's eyes opened wide looking at Altair. She was shocked and proud all at one time. Shocked that her brother would talk about dying. But proud that he would be so willing to risk his life for someone elses. She got on her knees and put her hand back on her shoulder. "You know Altair, I sometimes wonder if you should be the older sibling. Yes, we can stay and help. With whatever it is we have to do." she said smiling. Altair's face lit up with joy and hugged his sister tight. "Thank you! Thank you Carina!" he said hugging her. Carina hugged him back and then looked towards the others. "If we do help, we need to get medicine for him. He can't do much without it. I wont lose my brother helping someone else. He's the first on my list to protect." She said smiling towards her brother. "I'll do my best not to be a burden to all of y'all!" Altair said turning towards the others and smiling brightly.

Rowas had to take a lot of deep breaths after her rant and couldn't believe that she lost control. She wasn't going to go back to before, to just dancing, not when she had apparently been chosen for something bigger than just dancing. Looking down at the mirror, she saw that the silver princess grew sad as she had talked to Rowas and then she felt bad. She was always in control of the environment and the situations she was in, but this was different.

Taking one last deep breath, she spoke much softer to the princess. "I apologize for shouting. I've never had magic before and I do not know what my shard does or how to control it or anything of that sort."

The princess watched and listened as the others gave their piece. She smiled at the little boy and wished she could be there to offer some comfort, though it seemed he was doing the comforting. The princess's smile was sad as she explained, "I'm.. not entirely sure how we can get the medicine to him in as quick of time as he needs it. Maybe.." Her gaze moved to the edge of the mirror where she assumed her love, Clive, stood. "Clive, do you know of an herb or anything that would help?" She looked back to Carina. "What exactly is his ailment? Also, Rowas, was it? You're forgiven. As I said. this is a lot to take in."





Roderick Von Firth stood, glaring at the mirror. He hadn't seen the princess for hours now and silently began to wonder if she had found a way to escape. Then he shook his head, waving his hand at the air as if to dispel the thought. It was impossible to escape that realm without breaking the mirror her soul was originally trapped in. He made sure to ask the mages and scribes to confirm and they had, albeit reluctantly. The fools still held allegiance to the fallen royalty, though they'd never admit it. Not to Roderick's face. Maybe he could make an example of them...but no. He needed their minds.

He heard footsteps behind him and turned. There stood guards and a young man with pale hair and piercing blue eyes. Roderick grinned. They found the boy as instructed. He rubbed his hands together. Excellent.

"Braith!" He greeted the boy, stepping towards him and taking his wrist in his hand. The boy returned it with a nod of his head. "Good to see you, my boy. Have the guards passed on my instructions?" Braith nodded, ever the silent spy. Then he said, "Yes, my lord. And I look forward to the Everstone being whole again." He brushed some of his pale hair from his eyes. "Good. Here. Take this as well. It'll allow you to talk to Arwen." Braith smirked as he took the small, polished hand mirror. The guards had told him of the man who left under Roderick's employ, but failed to make his first report. He would make his Lord proud. Roderick didn't even have to pay him a single piece of copper to partake in such a mission. He was to receive some funds, but only as a means to stay alive. "Just tap the glass and she'll come to you. As for a shard, unfortunately, you're on your own. However, you have a stunning sixth sense for someone without magic so I'm sure you'll find another shard soon. "

Braith merely nodded and was escorted from the room. Roderick was left grinning madly once more at the mirror. He reached out with a hand and tapped on the surface, the sound echoing throughout the mirror realm. If she didn't show, he would have to punish the young princess the only way he knew how. Threatening her body. He was working on furthering his plan with the corpse like body anyway. He just needed a proper soul. "Guards" he commanded, "Bring me Dorina."





Braith roamed the grounds beyond the castle, waiting for the sound of a snick that told him magic was nearby. The longer he traveled, the further from the castle he had to journey until he was at the Glass Lake. That's when he felt it. An unexplainable tug at his core. A shard was nearby. He walked to the calm, glassy surface of the lake and gazed into the pool of water. He could hear the humming, but beyond his light blue eyes staring back at him, he didn't see anything of consequence. Just a strange blackish stone that suddenly seemed clear in a blink and then blacke once more. Well that certainly seemed magical to Braith. He reached down and wrapped his fingers around the stone. The world seemed to disappear from around him. In a blink, he was somewhere else. Somewhere dark.

He could still feel the cool surface of the stone in his hand and he smirked. Step one: complete. He held tight to the stone, hoping whatever it did would be of some use, and began to walk. Off in the distance he could hear voices. This was easier than he thought.

((sorry for tossing another character in so soon and so quickly. I need to start moving Roderick's plans forward and I need this character type. Since Claw seemed to have abandoned the rp (who played this role as Jurgan or whatever) I have instead given the task to Braith. He won't come into play until my next post though.))

There was so much going on at once. One second it was just Viola and Clive on a quest to save Arwen and now the group more then doubled. He looked around at the new members one at a time then looked over towards Viola. "I know a place we can go that isn't far from here. There isn't a better place to get medicine without entering the city, but we'll have to go in the morning." He thought about sleep but for some reason he wasn't tired in the slightest. Just from a glance he could tell Viola was tired. "I'll keep watch for the night." He said while he pointed to the mirror. "Can't sleep anyway!" He figured Viola wouldn't like the change of plans but it wouldn't do them any good if they were both staying up for the night. Clive walked over to the water and put his hand in it. The instant he felt the water he felt revitalized. He felt it before but now that he was tired it seemed more effective. He cupped his hands together and brought water from the fountain to his lips. He felt the cool water run down his throat and didn't even feel hungry any more. Clive pulled both crystals out of his pockets and once again commanded the water to listen. He moved the water through the air towards the back of the room. He knelt down and began making two more beds for the new arrivals, which took considerably less time then before. He purified the excess water and put it back into the fountain. He looked over at Carina and Altair and knelt down to look at the kid. "Go on and try it," He said while pointing to the bed.
