PostSubject: A hideout.   Fri Jun 06, 2008 10:32 pm

Connan, cloaked and hooded, half ran, half limped to one of his hideouts. It had not been his day.

The hideout was empty, safe and unreachable by anyone else. Connan leant against a wall. He was exausted, starving, and injured. Blood matted his hair and stained his skin and clothes.

And yet, he smiled.

'Free. Still free. Four months, and I'll be sitting pretty. Four months, then I'm 18, an adult and registered as free middleclass. Untouchable. 120 days. I can last that long, no problems. I got lucky today, so I need to be more careful... but right now, I need to sleep.'

He crawled into a shadowed ditch in the hideout- even someone searching the place wouldn't find him there. He wrapped the cloak around himself and fell into a fitfull, but restorative sleep.

Neavera walked in and sat down, waiting.

/Sorry kid. But I'm not letting you go for your months alone./

((OOC: she's gonna hide you at her house and if people get nosy she'll chop their heads off.))

Connan woke, still bloody and bruised, definitly hungry, but happy none the less.

Then he saw Neavera.

"JESUS CHRIST! Oh, holy shit, you scared me!"

She laughed.

"I have a mansion. You can live there, well, for four months. Anyone asks questions, I kill them. Not hurt. Kill."

"What?"

Connan was stunned. Literally stunned.

"I'm offering to hide you," she said, "you've got talent, kid, to hide for this long. I'm giving you a freedom pass."

"What do you get for it?"

His voice turned hard. He knew the rules: Nothing for nothing.

"Nothing," she said simply, "just the enjoyment of cheating some scum out of their bounty."

"And if I refuse, I become enslaved or killed, right ? An ultimatum."

He sighed.

'How did it ever come to this? Starving, exausted even though i've just slept, beaten, hunted. Where did it all turn to this?'

"Yes," she said sadly, "I can't have word of THIS getting out, now can I?"

Connan laughed- it was bitter, hollow. "As if I could tell anyone. As if I have security enough to speak a single word to anyone. I'm hunted, and I don't imagine you can understand what *that* is like."

She remembered thousands of years ago.

"I was hunted, once. For my race," she said, "genocide. Now can you understand that?"

"In a sense. Half-elves are outcasts from both humans and elves. Both and neither. More purist elves and more fearful humans hunt us, as a race. So yes I can understand that."

"As one who understands my past," she said, "or at least some of it-can you trust me? I promise you freedom. And in the meantime, good food, healing, and a good home."

Connan looked at her, differently now.

"Why? I've earned nothing. I've thwarted your law since I was twelve. I spent months, battered, bruised, abused by strangers. Starving. There were months when I would do *anything* for a meal. Why help me now, rather than then?"

"Because at first you escaped my notice," she said, "and then... I'm cruel. I tried you and tested you. And now I have realized your skills surpass most that I could throw at you. I believe now is the right time-you are almost at the point of freedom."

She smiled.

"And then, for your bravery in these years-I will declare you of noble blood."

"You played with my life. And now you offer me an open hand. It doesn't add up, but I guess I have to accept. Know this: If you try to kill me, I *will* fight back. Even against you, if I have to. I'm not a pet, and I'm not to be kept as a trophy. Those tests you put to me, I survived. Above all else, I will survive."

She laughed and shrouded them in darkness.

"Can you walk or should I just teleport to my mansion?"

He growled.

"Of course I can walk. This is a mosquito bite compared to beatings I've taken. The only concern is people seeing us."

"I'm magical," she said seriously, "they won't."

She led him through ghettos, shrouded in a black mist, the only thing that was a sign of who either of them was. Those who did notice-and that was hard-daren't question her.

((OOC: new thready thread thread thread at the mansion. Hold on.))
