Continued from Part 1..
She stands there a moment in shock, when another loud roar sounds from the tavern as the other barrels catch fire. She instinctively takes a step back and falls into the dark river and is carried away by the fast current. Before she loses consciousness from the cold she thanks the Priest-Kings she’d sent her girls to help at another tavern the night before and hopes an ikeri sentry from their vantage point above the tavern had seen her fall.
Only the Priest-Kings know where,when, or even if Lady Ava will wash up on a river bank somewhere.
I was overwhelmed by the responses to Ava’s plight, apparently I was more popular than I thought.
I picked the most plausible ones and planned a storyline to incorporate two of them. The immediate next step was sensibly to the nearest neighboring band,the Ikeri.
it was late in the night …all seem quiet in ikerei forest ..but the attention of Sky is attracted by a strong glow coming from the tavern of elation
Sky approach on the border of the camp et see the tavern in fire .
She quick think about her new friend Ava is in trouble
She hurries to cross the river to see more closely what is happening, she see big fire all the tavern burning …Sky try to look in and yell Ava…Ava!!!! are you here !!!…no answer to his call
Sadly she walk around and see a form on the ground in the deep night …she come closer and find Ava lifeless .
She take her in arms …give some slap to make her regain consciousness….but she cant ….
Ava !!! wake up !!! sigh
Sky do not know what to do … Prin the shaman is on a trip and he has to take a decision, she can’t leave Ava here.
If the Forest Moon find her she will be in danger …she wraps Ava in her coat so she does not get cold….
She considers putting Ava in a boat to send her away from these lands but is uncertain if she would survive the cold, so decides to bring her into the camp.
She whistles to one of her sisters and together they move Ava inside and put her where she will be safe and warm.
She knows that Forest Moon might send people looking for her friend, after the tavern burning, so she instructs her sisters not to let any know that Ava is there except for Ava’s sister by blood, Bodi.
(Sky Valerian, En of the Ikeri)
Bodi retrieved my prone body from the ikeri camp having seen shreds of my distinctive red dress nearby and correctly summised where I had gone or been taken.
Bodi took me to the camp of Dani in the remote Northern forest.
I had become ill from my time in cold water so was barely conscious during the journey and arrival at the camp.
Start RP Log:
Bodi pulls Ava out of the boat
Bodi: drags Ava up the slope
[03:06:37] Danis Band Camp Gate shouts: BodicaPagan Resident knocks loudly at the door ♫
Bodi shouts: can some one help me
Akashana draws her bow and sends an arrow towarsd the strangers to pin it in the wood very close to them..”WHAT YOU WNAT STRANGER!”
GM 4.69 ~ Akashana Resident hit you with ArrowS1 X-Blood [by LR] Elite 5.03 (20%) – strike type: arrow~direct ~
((Yes, they shot at the sick woman…!!))
Bodi shouts: i have my sister ava , she know dani , i was asked to bring her here
Bodi: my sister ava is ill she needs a healer ,she was in the river her tavern burnt down , ikeri said to bring her here
Akashana walks up “how sick? is it Bazi Plague?
Bodi: no not contagious , she must have hit her head in the river ,Bodi: she coughs myust be the water in her lungs. Can you let us in , i need to get her warm by a fire. Please!
Akashana “very well you can leave her there and go back to the village” looks suspiciously at the strangers “I will have a slave warm her”
Bay [Bailey Kerang] looked passed his Mistress her legs seeing the two Mistresses. He didn’t speak as he didn’t wish to interrupt the free as they were talking knowing his Mistress would not be pleased if he did.
Bodi: please let me stay till she is well, dani had a trade deal, i can carry this on
Bodi: i will leave as soon as she regains conscious , my name is bodi ava sister by blood sobs
Akashana looks at the unconscious woman.. “very well..” she taps Bay on the backside.. “go fetch me the Mistresses bow mine” directs him towards Bodi.. “you dont object to giving me your bow then?”
Bodi sighs and hands her bow over
Bay [Bailey Kerang]: Yes my Mistress he said as he crawled towards the Mistresses
Bodi: be careful with that bow , boy i say it very valuble
Bay [Bailey Kerang] opened his hands to receive the bows so he could take them back to his Mistress. He nods to the Mistress as she told him to be careful “Yes Mistress i will be careful with it” he said and smiled at her as he crawled back to his Mistress to hand her the bows.
Bay [Bailey Kerang] crawled back to his Mistress and handed her the bow ” My Mistress , this is the bow the Mistress gave me ” he said and presented her the bow.
Akashana now walks up slips her drawn bow on her shoulder and “be welcome at our fire then.. “BAY! carefully carry the hurt Mistress inside and warm her by the fire HAR TA dont you she she is hurt!” she sanps impatiently at him as she takes the visitors bow from him
Bodi wipse ava face and looks toward the huntress, she need help please
[03:18:07] Danis Band Camp Gate opened by Akashana Resident Ⓜ
Bay [Bailey Kerang] nods his head to his Mistress as he stood up carefully laid the seemingly injured Mistress down on the floor letting her rest her back against a treestump
Ava groans slightly but does not wake
Bodi pulls ava towards the heat of the fire , she needs warm dry clothes , her is still wet from river , maybe a blanket, some warm soup perhaps, i will feed her
Akashana Keeps an eye on the Male slave.. then walks over to the hurt Ava.. “BAY! why are you still kneeling get the blanket and some soup!”
Liz: tal akashana
Liz: greetings travelers
Akashana smiles as she looks at Liz.. “tal Liz this is Bodi a friend of DAni and her Sister both are under the protection of the camp
Bay [Bailey Kerang] nods his head to her ” Yes my Mistress ” he said and stood up greeting Mistress Liz “greetings Mistress’ he said and went over to the mainhut to get a blanket , some clothes and some soup
Liz: hi Bay
Bodi: Tal Huntresses, I am Bodi , sister to Ava Here ,
Liz: I always think travelers are trouble, you are lucky i did not greet you. But I am new here and i an glad to see you are friends
Bodi: i was working in the zima tavern as tavern keeper , i heard my sister was in trouble, so i came to the land elation , ignor the small one who spaeaks of trouble, the ikeri told me to bring her here,
Bay [Bailey Kerang] rushed back to the campfire and was slightly out of breath. He kneels down besides bodi and had some clothes and a blanket in his hands and offered it to the Mistress. “Mistress I brought you some dry clothes and a blanket as requested. The soup i will get after this Mistress”
Bodi: nods help me undress her and put her in warm blanket , then we get the soup in her
Akashana turns as Eyota comes up “greetings Elderly Respected Eyota” she says with a smirk
Bay [Bailey Kerang] nods as he came closer “Yes Mistress” he said as he placed the clothes on the log next to him and the blanket on top. He went close to Ava as he helped undressing her , she was actually quite pretty, He piled up the wet clothes on another log and tried to hide his manparts between his legs to avoid any natural reactions to be seen.
Bay [Bailey Kerang]: Greetings Mistress
Bodi takes the soup and helps ava feed , noting the watmth coming back in to her body, ” Tal There i am Bodi sister to Ava, rubbing her arms and legs to get more warmth
єуσтα [aileen Rang] stuck out her tongue at Akashana “You make me sound like a withered old hag.” she’d chuckle teasingly and shook her head. Nonetheless, she’d soon wave to the rest and waved a hand at everyone around, “Well a passed out woman by the fire being undressed. Sounds about the right way to start the morning.” she’d sigh, “What happened exactly? And who is..” she’d point to Bodi, “Ah Ava? Like the tavern owner who trades with us?”
Ava groans slightly as she is moved and feels something warm in her mouth. Vaguely registering the scent of bodi’s cheap perfume she guesses it’s safe and swallows
Bodi is happy to see some change in ava gives more soup , well she coming too food always did that for her
Bay [Bailey Kerang] watched closely as the Mistress covered Mistress Ava up and fed her some soup. She seemed to have it all under control so Bay went back to his Mistress to kneel at her side.
Bodi turns to the new comer , is there a healer here who can check her over?
ʏᴀɴᴀ sʜᴇᴘᴀʀᴅ ᴛʜᴇ ᴜɴᴛᴏᴜᴄʜᴀʙʟᴇ [Johana Haystack] entered the firepit, saw the crowd and saluts to everyone “Tal there sister, slut, im looking for my daughter leona, ooh for those that doesnt know me, Im Leona’s evil Mom” saluts again and continue shuffling her way to Leona’s hut, where she hides….
Akashana turns to look as a huntress comes to the fire.. “Tal” she says and smacks Bay upside the head for no particular reason
Bay [Bailey Kerang] grits his teeth as he was suddenly smacked on his head and looked at his Mistress to see what he did wrong this time
Bay [Bailey Kerang] looked at his Mistress ” Can i perhaps serve you anything my Mistress ? It was a long day for you after all ” he asked her.
єуσтα [aileen Rang] shook her head in the negative as the woman asked her about a healer, “Unfortunately, our healer Julie has been out for some time. I would say the alternative would be to bring her to the healer, Ethan, in the outpost. However, were not on good terms right now. But a panther camp really isn’t the best place for proper medical care.” her chest fell as she’d sigh and she’d move to sit on the log beside Ava. In a cursory glance, she’d peruse her features and tried to determine her ailment, “I would say your best bet is to sail her off to Mirkwood. There’s a healer’s house gsAkashana nods.. “some Larma Bay and warmed Wine Bay”
Bodi cringe at these words, ” there is more to the tail , she is also fugitive from some lands and is wanted by ermm some , they blame her for burning down the tavern, is is needed a safe place to stay , too
Bay [Bailey Kerang] gave his Mistress a warm smile ” Yes my Mistress, Larma and warmed wine it is my Mistress ” he said and stood up to go to the kitchen area so he could prepare her food and drink
Ava lifts her head groggily, looks up and sees the legs of panther girls
Ava murmurs “where am I?”
Akashana: ?me Slave Outpost 5 she syas as the woman asks
Bodi drys her dress next to the fire , ” AVA i say loud , i brought you here with the map i was given , do you remember what happened
єуσтα [aileen Rang] rose a brow at Bodi and shook her head as she’d whisper a soft laugh, “You shouldn’t go around telling us that she’s a wanted woman. If there’s a bounty on her head, I am sure some of my Sisters would want to sell her off to the highest bidder.” she’d look at Akashana and just grinned widely. But her expression sobered soon and she’d look back to Bodi. “She may stay here under the understanding that I am not responsible for her life. And, like I said, I don’t have a medic who can tend to her now. So it’s hard to say whether or not she’ll pull through.”
Ava gasps” *slave* outpost?” and drops her head as the weariness overcomes her again
Akashana began to look over the pretty bow that Bodi had gieven her.. “this is a nice Bow i will swap it with you!” she declares to Bodi
Bay [Bailey Kerang] finally made it to the kitchen area and looked around to see what he needed. His Mistress asked for some larma and warmed wine and looked around for a plate. He found a perfect bowl instead and knew it would be better suitable for the larma and made sure it was clean and in perfect condition. Then taking a goblet from the shelves he inspected it for cracks or possible chips that came off. Bay smiled pleased as he so none and carefully polished it clean with a repcloth. Then as he looked in the kitchen he found some Sa – Tarna wine which was perfect for warmed wine and poored some in the kettle he had found and started to warm it over the fire. Bay had to be careful with the fire as he was naked and didn’t wish to turn his manpart into a hotdog so he maneuvered in a bit of a strange way but it would get the job done.
Bodi listens to the words of the Huntress, and is relieved she offer to give safety to her sister, turning to the huntress she first met, No it is very valuable, and has new gut on it and i am used to it, but i have and ava have coin let me check her her purse , i look in her clothes
Akashana would lift her chin in agreement. “coin will do fine, payment includes the warmth of the fire the protection of the camp and complimentary use and obedience of camp slaves”
Bay [Bailey Kerang] softly sang a song to himself , an old sailors song he had learned a long time ago as he did his very best for his beautiful Mistress. While the wine was warming he peeled some fresh larma’s and pulled it apart. He then carefully aranged the larma pieces in the bowl and smiled pleased at his work before placing the bowl on the serving tray. Bay then looked at the wine and made sure it was the perfect temperature as he only wanted the best for his Mistress. Bay was pleased and filled up the goblet with the warmed Sa-tarna wine and filled it up till just below the rim. Then placing the goblet on the serving tray as well and make his way back to his Mistress. He had to lift the tray a bit higher as usual to not hang his man part on the tray as that would be a big no no to his Mistress. So carefully he walked back to his Mistress so he could serve her.
Ava half registering the conversation she hears the word “protection” and relaxes presuming bodi has taken her someone safe
Bodi looks in the clothes of ava, finding a purse, takes 1 silvercoin , and holds up , when she able i will leave i found canoe i left on the bank , feeds ava more soup, i thinks she is waking up, when she does i will go , and leave her to your safe place , i have trade if you need things like metal
Bay [Bailey Kerang] finally made it back safely and placed the serving tray on the floor as he kneels down in front of his Mistress. Bay picked up the bowl with the larma up first and offered it to his Mistress with his head and eyes lowered respectfully. ” My Mistress may i offer you some of the finest larma i could find for you. I already peeled it and prepared it for your convenience my Mistress. I hope you will enjoy it my Mistress” he said and waited for her to take the bowl so he could serve her the warmed Sa-Tarna wine as well
Ava feels the spoon again at her mouth and takes some more
Ava rolls over and leans against the log and looks about her still very daze
Akashana “nods” and lifts her hand for the Silver coin “toss the coin over Lady” Reached to takes some Larma and sucks on one slice.. then place the sucked out skin back on the tray and reached for the warm wine.. “If you wish a slave to refresh you before you travel back Bodi.. the man here will do as you command” she lifts away the drink and directs Bay to offer service
Ava takes in her surrroundings through blurry eyes
Bodi nods i will have some warm wine and perhaps ava will too, , i hope to be on my way , hides my feather in my hair ,
Ava asks a little unsure having only been to the place once before “Is this Dani’s camp?”
Akashana looks over the fire to Ava.. “Dani is EN here” she states simply and kicks the thigh of Bay a little annoyed he is still kneeling and not serving the visitors
Ava sighs with relief now knowing where she is and she is safe
End of RP Log.
My distinctive red dress was ruined from the water and the rough journey and I was given some spare clothing that the panthers had acquired from somewhere and moved into a hut to recuperate.
Wait and see what is in store for Ava when she wakes..in part 3
