Risk was lying under a table, his right arm felt like it was broken , his face was bruised, his nose and lip were bleeding. He'd been crushed adn felt like he'd almost been killed when the mob satrted. He rolled out from under the table, the mob was calming now that the gaurds had run off to find teh rebels. Risk ha dto make a report, he had to tell Star of Darkyn who he'd seen run off with the Prince. He'd seen them leave and had tried to follow but had ended up being shoved to the ground acrushed. He winced, his ribs hurt. Risk got to his feet adn stumbled off toward sthe library, hoping someone to report too would be there.
((I"m sorry that last post was so badly formatted :( ))
Darkyn whirled at the small girl cowering in the corner. "You! Go and find Risk! Get his report on things!"
She nodded quickly and darted away. Darkyn turned back to face hhis men, but the door flew open as a soldier with a bleeding shoulder wound entered.
"My King! We were attacked. A large rebel group attacked the store house."
Darkyn growled, "What did they take?"
"All of it sir. The entire store house." The soldier gasped as the grabbed his shoulder to staunch the bleeding.
"Am I surrounded by idiots?" Dakryn shouted. "You all have guns and weapons and vast amounts of Old science at your fingertips and still a group of peasents can beat you?" he glared at them and then pointed at the soldier. "Send troups to guard the rest of the safe houses. Make sure they don't get so much as another crumb!"
Darkyn turned to his generals, "As for you all we are making war plans now."
Risk waited in the alley behind the library, he was sitting down his back against the wall. He wiped his face with his hands, trying to clear the blood from it. He felt dizzy and tired, bruises started to swell and the rest of his body burned, he leaned his head back against the wall and took deep breaths, waiting, waiting for Star or Darkyn to show up, or someone to report to.
((THat's OK, :-D))
Star raced down the streets, trying to not get crushed by the people as they ran here in there in terror. Star hadn't found Risk in the Square. So she was heading toward the Librabry- the only other place she knew where to look for him.
When she reached the door she found it locked. So she cupped her hands around her face and shouted, "Risk!"
Risk heard star shoutin and getting to his feet wiped his face again, he smoothed his hair down, feeling a cut on the back of his head where blood was oozing slowly ftom. His face was also still bleeding, but he tried to make himself look a bit presentable before he stumbled around from behind the library and went ove rto star,
"'Ey." he said, he took her hand and led her behind the building, then he leane din and whispered to her, descrbing the people who had run off with the prince and pointing in the direction they'd run in,
"The crow' wouln't lemme follow 'em, I got shove' 'own." he explained as his excuse for not being able to follow the group of people.
"Risk!" Star gasped. "You are hurt!" She took a small peice of cloth from her shirt and ripped it off. She whiped at his face. "You should come back to the castle and get treatment!" Kyvan opened the door as the others returned home. Sharp and Jax entered firtst followed by Gloss and Stump and leaders from the other reble groups. "Is it true?" Sharp asked. "Is he back?" "Yeah. We are meeting in the secret pasaage room. " They all shut the door and locked it before heading to the room where Tristian and the others were.
Risk blushed his face turning red from his neck to his forhead.
"I'm fine, really, it ain't nothin' I can't go to 'e palace, Imma stree' kid." he said, he oped she got all the information he'd given her, and since he was feel daring he leaned in and kissed her on the cheek before turning and running off to find somewhere to sleep that night.
Try was doing her job guarding, she was sulking and thinking. Sulking because she felt like Kyvan always tried to push her to a 'safe' job and didn't want to bring her on anything dangerous. She was also thinking about her parents, when she as little she'd refused to believe they were dead, after all parents didn't just die right? But after tonight, after seeing that woman killed, she knew that yes parents did just die, she was ondering if her parents were dead.
Kyvan and the others came into the room where Tristian and the prince were. Everyone instantly went up to him and began to slap him on the back and shake his hand.
Kyvan watched from the door as Prior smiled and hugged them all in turn. Kyvan had known the Prior family for a long time. He knew that the prince wouldn't be the greatest king in the world, but he'd be one better than Darkyn because he truely cared for the people.
Kyvan waited for about five minutes before clearing his throat and said, "Don't you think we should get started with the meeting?"
(Quick question: how do your want Tristiian and the prince's relationship to play out?))
(( I don't really do roamnce...I mean I can have her think he;s handsome and all...that's normal and such, but I don't do kissing and such...um so yeah...that'd be pretty much it....like she thinks he's a handsome guy but doesn't do anything...physical...))
Try didn't really pay attention to anyone she was too busy thinking and sulking. She looked up and saw everyone hugging and back slapping. Another family thing she'd never done, or even understood. Why hug a bunch of people just becuasng And why smack people if they hadn't done anything wrong? It didn't make any sense to her, she'd never asked anyone either.
((Okay. I'm with you about the romance stuff. I'm oaky with kissing but anything further I don't really care to write about.)))
Ellesies nodded. "Right, right. Everyone sit down and i'll tell you what is going on."
Everyone found somewhere on the ground to sit, but Kyvan kept standing in the doorway. Ellesies then began to tell everyone what had happened since he had left. He breifly told of how he had run into a tribe of rebels living in the wild and how they had recognized him as the heir. They then began to help him search for the other rebels hiding out in the wilds. It took a while but they had gained an army of seven thousand men and hundreds of trained Creatures. Most of this army was just beyond the boarder of the city walls, but they had slowly been trickling in through the sewage systems for a few months now. And now there were about 2,000 rebels inside of the city- not including the ones aready inside.
"So what is your plan?" Kyvan asked.
"Well," Ellesies smiled at him, "I was kinda hoping you could help me with that general."
Kyvan nodded slowly. "Yes. I'll help you." Kyvan then got one of those gut feelings he gets. He glanced at Tristian who was sulking by the door, "But I want Tristian to to be my Captin. She is very useful and quick on her feet."
Tristian perked up at hearing that she quit glaring at the ground and straightened a bit, though the straightening ws more of an attempt to look taller, a failed attempt at that. She looked aroun dthe room at the others, wondering what they'd say about Kyvan's wish for her to be his captain. After all some of these people may be more qualified or just not like the idea of her being a captain. She looked looked from around the room, trying to read people and gauge their reactions.
((Eh for me I don't even want to write about kissing unless it's like a peck on the cheek...the highest 'romantic' phsyical conatct I'll write about is if they hold hands...nothing more... :-P))
"Tristian?" Ellesies said and looked at her. "So that's your name. I don' believe we've met."
"You haven't," Bright said. "Kyvan picked her up afte she saw us doing a raid. They got into some trouble with a couple of Creatures and he brought her back here." Bright glanced at her, "She's proven herself useful enough."
Red, on the other hand went over to her and smiled and grabbed tristian's hand.
"She is quick to learner and a good fighter and has proven herself trustworth," Kyvan said firmly. "I would place my life in her hands should it come down to it."
Ellesies nodded. "All right. I'd be glad to have a smart lady like you on my side and council. Nice to meet you offically, my lady." He extended his hand to her to shake.
Though the king extended his right hand, Try reached out with ehr left and clasped his rather awkwardly. Red was hanging on to her right hand and she didn't want to let him go. My lady...there it was again,
"Um nice to meet you too, sir..your majesty..." she awkwardly. "Ahh...Call me Try or Tristian." she added and she let go of his hand letting her hand fall to her knee. Red was smiling and looked extremely happy. Tristian felt awkward and ebarressed, her speech hadn't been the greatest and she thought she'd sounded like an idiot. She felt herself flush.
Ellesies yawned and looked at Kyvan. "I think we've discussed enough for one night. Is there somewhere I could sleep? I am tired."
Kyvan nodded. "There's a spare bed in my room." he looked at the other rebel leaders. "We have other beds for you too if you'd llike. "
None of the rebel leaders accepted. They were worried about their family and if any soldiers had biscovered that they were rebels and were now at their houses. They all left in pairs into the night.
Kyvan sighed. "I am going to bed too. I have to go to work tommorrow if there is any."
Tristian got up and extracated herself from Red's grip.
"Night guys." she siad, still a bit flush and she went to her room. She jumped in the shower and washed the hair and skin dye off her skin, it was temporary dye, and easily washed off if she scrubbed well enough. AFter she looked pretty much herself again she climbed out, dressed in her clothes again and tosing erh shoes in a corner fairly fell onto her bed she grabbed her diary.

Today was interesting. I was cornored by Ben...I dont want to think abowt what would have happened if Bright and Kevin hadn't come and scard him off.
There was a beheading today...of a mothr. Ive been thinking what if my mawm and dad are dead? What if they dont come back? I dunno...I dunno what to think anymore, this 'family' Ive been acceptd into seem wonderful but there not like my other family. They dont hit me when I mess up and they dont beat me either...they smack eech other thow when they ar happy..they hug too, its weerd.
The prince, Ellesies is back, he seems nice, hes a reel gent too, called me lady and all. Im tired now and am going to bed.
She closed ehr diary and put it on her night stand, then she lay back and went to sleep.
Darkyn did not sleep that whole night. He organized new parties of troops the march along the streets and patrol the walls. All night long he had preformed raids of suscpected rebels- except for the library he had spared it. Many people were now in jail. Creatures of all sorts were roaming the city to inflict fear in the peoples' hearts. Darkyn was determined to keep his crown.
Try woke up the next day, she changed into her other set of clothes, she had two and went out to the kitchen, she satrted to make herself some strong coffee while she waited for others to wake up. Her flat cap was perched on her head, with the bil voer the left side of her face only. She wondered what this day would bring, everyday seemed intrresting and different. She looked at the time, it was way early, she didn't have to go to work yet.
Kyvan woke before the sun. He quietly slipped into the kitchen and began to boil some water. He then began to cook some oats. Today was probably going to extremely crazy-but the fact that they hadn't been raided by soldiers was a good sign.
((I gotta go, I'll respon later, OK?))
