Re: Destiny's Awakening: Chapter 4 -- Trail of Bones
Ashlyn had stared at Magi for the longest time, trying to determine what had just happened and what was going on with the man. He looked
then he had before, with the aura that was glowing around him. She hadn't been able to determine what exactly he was but she didn't like the looks of it and had backed up slightly when he had taken a couple of steps towards her. She couldn't explain her uneasiness about him glowing like that but at least he didn't seem to want to hurt her with whatever magic he had in him. Maybe she didn't want to know or even
to know at this point. Whoever Magus Jon was, she would have to ask Gaidin more about him later or even ask the man directly himself.
Magi could tell that the shock had worn off on her and the face that he knew all too well set in: he had to come up with some sort of explainon as to what he had just done and what was going on. He had opened his mouth several times to tell her something -- anything -- but nothing came out. Instead he sighed and gestured to the outside where they could get back to the rest of the group and help them out while he thought of something to tell her.
At the time she hadn't even bothered to try and explain how better she felt then she had only ten minutes before, as she and Magi ran out of the house and towards where the rest of the group was. It was only when they stopped at the house where they had been in previously did she put a hand to her throat and frown. Her body didn't feel wobbly as it had before and she didn't feel as sickly as she had been earlier.
What did he do to me?
she thought to herself as she glanced over towards Magi, who wasn't even remotely looking toward her any more but towards something along the left side of the house which they were at.
She followed his gaze to see something buried in the snow, Magi quickly running towards it with Ashlyn right behind him. Ashlyn didn't know why she was following him, just that her first instinct was to stay with someone despite the fact that the person she was following was still glowing. Stopping in front of the pile of snow, Ashlyn realized that it was in the shape of the body and quickly started to dig whoever it was out of there. Magi did most of the work using whatever force he had inside of his body to move the snow out of the way faster then she ever could.
Within two minutes the snow was completely off the slightly moving body of Kal, who was muttering something about the Goddesses and other sort of things. Glancing up at Magi, who shrugged with a frown, Ashlyn pushed on Kal's arm to wake him up.
"What? Kal, calm down!" She snapped loud enough for the Sheikah to wake up as she tried to wake him up. It took him a full minute for his eyes to wake up and look between the two of them like he had never seen them before or was extremely glad to see someone.
"Wha--Ashlyn?" He asked cautiously, looking at her with a curious look. "What...."
"You fell down from the window and into this pile of snow." The Hylain pointed towards the top of the house; she assumed he did anyways, she couldn't be sure. "We dug you out, or Jon did. With his magic."
Kal sat up and looked towards Magi, who was now staring daggers at the sitting man. Ashlyn didn't seem to take notice that the two of them were looking strangely at each other, standing up and brushing the snow off of herself. At least Kal was alright and everything as normal as possible with him.
"What happened? Where am I? Oh, is the battle over?" Yelling from inside the house told him otherwise. "Fine, lets go."
"Wait, what are you doing outside in the first place?" Magi asked him curiously as Kal stood up and brushed himself off. He didn't answer right away, instead busied himself with getting the last bit of snow off of his clothing instead of giving a direct answer. Ashlyn could tell something happened with him and Kal wasn't too keen on giving any details with the exact reasoning as to why he was found outside in a pile of snow when he should have been inside helping others.
"I'd like to know why you're glowing before I find out why he's outside," Ashlyn demanded as she turned around to face the Ordonian. "And what in the name of Farore
did you do to me!?!
"I don't think this is the time to discuss something like this," Kal pointed out, not really taking a liking to standing outside like this. Ashlyn glared over at her shoulder at him, not really interested in what was going on inside. She had more then enough of Poe's for quite a while and for all she was concerned the rest of the group could deal with them for the time being. She had other things to worry about at the moment.
"I quite agree with him," Magi offered only to be given the same exact glare as Kal did.
"Kal can go help the group for all he wants. I've had more then enough dealings with Poe's to last me for the rest of my life, for what little I have left." She wrapped her arms around her body to keep herself from shivering, what good it did her. She was tired of having everyone step around her because they might do something to further damage her body or make the Blood go faster. She was tired of having people worry about every little thing that she did and what effect it had on her. She knew something would happen to her eventually and nothing short of a cure could stop it; even a
was starting to sound like it wouldn't work.
"Look, all I want is some answers. I'm tired of dealing with everyone acting like I don't understand anything. I know it's not the time for it but I don't
the time to wait for things to be explained," she told them. "I need the answers to everything
while I'm still Ashlyn. I....just want everyone to stop acting like I'm a fragile thing that can be broken. I'm not stupid, either. I know what's going to happen to me and there's nothing I can do about it."
Tears were beginning to sting her eyes as she started to walk away from them, towards any place that she could run into that was safe. Ashlyn didn't wait for the two to give her the answers she wanted, she knew deep inside that they wouldn't do anything of the sort -- no one in the group could. Not even Gaidin, who seemed to trust her more then he should despite what she would turn into in just over a week. She was tired of feeling like she was the reason why everyone was rushing to get the next Artifact and being cuddled like a newborn baby. She just wanted everyone to stop worrying about her.
Running to the nearest empty house, she threw herself inside and closed the door where she fell to her knees as she started to cry.
