Colcun caught his balance as he landed somewhat uncomfortably in the town square
as he was still getting used to the idea of "Word of Recall", and
the transportation from one place to the next. He had hopes of
meeting Magyana, so as to perhaps impress the beautiful vampire of
his new learned skills in search. He thanked the Gods for making
it back in one piece...... after all, Wilam was rather intimidating.
Magyana yet again returned to his mind... he couldn't help himself.
Perhaps he was falling in love. Often in the night, he would hear
her voice soothing his battle wounds, and his heart, just by the sound
of her voice, floating on the wind. In fact it was this hearing of her
voice that made him wish to meet her in person. And shortly after meeting
her, he knew that he must do what he could to please her.
Night fell, as he continued to think about his encounter with Bercilak, and
his rather tasteless killing of the citizens of this town, and the voice that
he heard nightly floating on the wind. Suddenly out of the darkness something
shadowy flew over the square, jumping from one building to the next. He sensed
a great evil, but was unsure what to do. It was rather obvious this town
didn't have dark things bolting from one building to the next all the time,
So his curiosity got the best of him, and he bolted after what ever it was.
The shadow jumped yet again, making Colcun hard on breath. Suddenly, without
realizing it, he stood before the great Cathedral of Xantheus City. The
creature had vanished some where about here. Suddenly, the familiar voice came
upon the wind.....and for the first time, there was great alarm in the voice.
He was in grave danger. He looked up, where the gargoyles watched over the
church. Hunched next to one of them, was a dark shape. Then two red eyes
peered out of the darkness. Colcun knew he was in trouble. He could no longer
move, he was so tired, and for some odd reason, he could not recall. He began
to become frantic. Then a slow hissing was heard, and the shadow dropped down
before him. It beared its great white fangs, and hissed a very evil hiss.
It grinned slightly, and said, "Ah it would appear that this cat's curiosity
will indeed kill it." It moved very slowly around Colcun, playing with it's
prey. Suddenly, a flash of darkness, the vampire was upon Colcun, tossing
to the ground. The vampires eyes rolled back, as it grabbed Colcun's wrist,
slashing it open with its teeth. Blood spurted from the new wound, and the
vampire screamed with glee. Colcun slowly became delirious. Then darkness
enveloped him. As conciousness came back to him, he layed in a dream:
About him were many people, all pale, and all with a red wine of sort. One
of the people came up to him, and offered him a drink of his wine. Feeling
rather out of sorts, Colcun agreed. The man who fed it to him quietly
murmured, "There you go Tasloi. Enjoy your new lot in life." Confusion
grappled him and he shook awake to see before him the neck of the creature
before him. He quickly withdrew, looking at the vampire in shock horror.
For before him, the vampire who had stolen his life, lay lifeless itself,
and covering it, and the area about it was a pool of blood. Colcun
slowly walked over to the now dead corpse, turning it face up. The
vampires face, was in a position of pure pain, as the now still hands
grasped the long jagged blade, "Snake bite", which ran through his heart.
Slightly the wind picked up, and Colcun looked about in slight anguish.
What now? What now?, he quietly asked himself in his mind. An answer
came, and it was one, that Colcun would have to live with forever.
Move on Tasloi. You have a destiny to fullfill.
Tasloi slipped into the shadows in search for answers....as the corpse
slowly turned to ashes, and floated off in the wind.
