Oops. I hope no one took my last post as "reserving space to write the next scene."  That was not my intention.

The dagger I hope that Darcy finds will dovetail nicely into any "market" scene written, so please charge ahead if you have an idea of your own.!

Most humble apologies.

Glad I didn't wreck your storyline. You are not alone in losing posts - there is nothing more annoying than poring over a story only to lose it when you inadvertently hit a key. Having done that twice I now save everything to drafts after each paragraph thus saving what is left of my sanity.

I have an idea for the market scene, but it will have to wait until tomorrow.  The Torenthi were haunting my last post:  a hasty rewrite based on revanne's post (but I think it turned out better, so thanks, revanne) then I lost it when I tried to make an edit in the preview window (only I could do that), then a few more edits, then finally posted.  You'd have thought I made a dice roll....

Washburn is not in my head at the moment, a courier is occupying that space. but I can assure Aliset that he will protect her from any alter that has Oswarl, Valerian, or even Darcy's horse any where near them.
Where did Evil Feyd portal too. I hope it is not near the marketplace outside St Brigid's Convent. eek!

As always, feel free to haul Aliset with you hither and yon during my absence. LOL!

So long as it's not to the altar with either Oswald or Valerian!   ;D

DH and I are going out for the evening, so I have popped a short scene in, and someone else can either write a marketplace scene, or we can just assume we've bought the items we wanted (since we've already discussed those in this thread with Bynw earlier, as I recall) and proceed from there.  As always, feel free to haul Aliset with you hither and yon during my absence. LOL!

Aliset was glad of the slight breeze in the morning air, because it helped to cool the warm flush in her cheeks. How stupid it had been of her to just go barging into the guesthouse like that!  She hadn't given it a moment's thought; apparently one of the perils of growing up in a household full of brothers was that she had grown so accustomed to walking into chambers and finding one or more of them in varying states of relaxed undress, she hadn't given a second thought to how different it would be to walk in on Sir Washburn and Master Darcy in a similar state until she'd actually done so and seen their shocked stares back at her.  Well, she supposed it might have been worse. She might have caught them at their bath and startled them so badly as to run screaming for the Reverend Mother's protection of their manly virtues....

The whimsical daydream brought a giggle to her lips, followed by a groan. How was she ever going to manage to look them in the eyes again and manage a straight face and normal composure?

The amused look on her face faded away as she considered her future. Provided she had a future, that is. Provided it wouldn't be summarily snuffed out by one of Oswald's hirelings, or perhaps worse, by that mysterious Deryni she'd seen in her scrying visions on two occasions now.  Who was he? What interest did he have in her, or was it one of her other companions he was after? How was he connected to Oswald?  Was he connected to Oswald?  She had so many questions, and not nearly enough answers.

And another thing she had was fear.  Not just fear of being pursued or even killed, although certainly those were pressing concerns at the moment. More frightening was the thought of being captured and brought back to Caer Mariot, defenseless and alone, to be used by Oswald to secure his hold on her lands and get an heir on her who would have unquestioned rights to the Mariot lands.  She would rather marry anyone else but him!

Well, nearly anyone else.  The thought of that dark, mysterious stranger in her visions returned to her, and she shuddered. She supposed, upon further reflection, that there were worse fates.

And yet who might Kelson give her to? Aliset trusted the King, else she would hardly be trying to escape to him, yet that thought filled her with a little trepidation also. She hoped against all hope that maybe he would be content to allow her to simply remain a ward of the Crown, to be married later at her own time to a man of her choosing, so long as she chose wisely and responsibly for the sake of her people. Aliset was bred to duty; she knew better than to allow emotions to cloud sound thinking when it came to marriage, though she also hoped that she could learn to love whatever man Fate had in store for her.  She wasn't afraid of marriage in and of itself.  She knew she had been well trained to handle a manorial household, and as for more intimate matters, one could hardly have grown up in a manor as small as Caer Mariot, and seen the number of siblings who had been born to her mother through the years, without having some inkling of the delight her parents had found in each other, although one might have wished their bedchamber had had thicker walls!  The thought made her blink away hot tears.  They were all dead now, of course, between childhood illnesses that had taken the lives of her younger two sisters and a baby brother well before their time, the death of her mother in childbed not long afterwards, and now the violent bloodshed that Oswald had visited upon her remaining family.  But what would it be like to be given to a stranger, and have to learn how to adapt her life around his? 

The door to the guesthouse opened, and the knight and the seaman stepped out, blinking in the bright sunlight as their eyes adjusted to its brightness.  Aliset smiled at them, taking comfort in their presence, the sight of them returning her thoughts to the here and now, her earlier embarrassment forgotten in the light of greater matters to worry about.

((Love the rewrite Thank you for that. Hopefully Wash will reach Rhemuth and have more help and support to defeat Valetrian))


Edited to add double parentheses because this is a comment on the story, not a story scene.  --Evie

I'm trying to recall if we've seen that St. Christopher's medallion before (that just turned up in Darcy's saddle bag), or if this is a mysterious new twist? I'm wondering if it might have been enspelled to be used as a form of tracking device and placed in Darcy's bag by that band of watchers who were recently outside the village walls, and if that gong farmer is shortly going to find himself in serious trouble?  Although if so, maybe that will throw off the pursuit long enough for our adventurers to slip away undetected....  :D
