Frostbiter buried its blue tip into the ground my hand not having the power to hold its now heavy blade. My eyes ignoring the grunt of the man on the ground and Em’s struggles to break the others man’s grip, my eyes where focused on the girl. The girls hair was like waves of brown beauty, they washed over my eyes drawing me near. Her curved body was displaced by the heavy studded leather she wore now. But underneath the armour she wore a dress made of silk that had her family’s pattern stitched on. She held a bow pointed at me but her eyes, oh those pools of shining blue sapphires, grew wide and the arrow fell to the ground. Her simple lips curved forming the words “Rafel” but no sound escaped them. I nodded as if it was all I could do, that and cry. I remember I did a lot of crying. The tears just whouldn’t stop I wasn’t sad no infact I was filled with joy I had never experienced before except around her. “Saria” I said my voice weak I didn’t even know if she heard me. We both made small steps towards one another “I thought you where dead” we both said. “The elves” I said avoiding her eyes remembering that horrible sight. “We thought the Orcs where still there when you sent that letter saying how you planded to come home we escaped that night I didn’t know if you where still” I silenced her with my lips. I wanted to do more to show her my love but in that moment I didn’t know how to convey it except by pressing ones lips to another to try to give your spirit to another. My arms slid around her I wanted to hold her and never let go to protect her. The rest of the world vanished it was me and her that’s all that mattered. Then she pulled me back into realilty “Rafel, we have to stop the posion” she said pushing out of my hold. “I love you” I said meakly the only thing I could think about at that moment. “I love you to” She said locking eyes with me. I grinned like a madman and she blushed a bright red. “You to done snogging yet” I heard a jolly voice say. I spun around and greeted the man’s warm hug “Lupin its been so long” I said realizing him. “Bout time you came back what brought you back the orcs, the posion the girl” He said jabbing me. “The girl” I said smiling at her. “I see you found yourself another sidekick” Lupin joked “That pig’s got a mighty kick” he said rubbing his shoulder. “Yeah sorry bout that Lionday can be a bit reckless espically around assailants” i said brining up there assault. “After being in a masacere you tend to be untrusting” Lupin sneered. Lupin stood there in thick fancy boots his poofing white pants showing little signs of dirt. He wore chainmail with a studded jacket above it. He had two blades at his side and like all half elves wore a rugged beared. His beared was a blond and it had been shaved into a simple little truff of hair. His blond hair stood peaked no matter how much he moved the hair still poked towards his nose. Lupin was a half elf, half-elf is a species of hybrind unlike most which are either unable to breed or have both weakness of there parents Half-elves are able to breed and mix the best of both races. They have the elves quickness and ability to learn along with a long life span, but the humans hair and there ability to adapt. Lupin’s mother was a human and she was killed soon after his birth by a mysterious murderer. His father in depression joined the royal army and soon died when Lupin was only six. My family took in the Orphan and me and him already being good friends grew inseprebale. He infact was the first to introduce me to Saria. Despite his many hardships Lupin always was a light of happiness. “I see your point no harm done I suppose” I laughed. The two other elves I also knew. “Kingsly and Rebeca” I said hugging the two of them. “You’ve grown haven’t you” Kingsly said. “Yeas and look at those muscles very big aren’t they” Rebeca chimed in. Kingsly and Rebeca thought the same, acted the same, talked the same, this might be due to the fact that there twins. They wheren’t identical but they where born at the same time with Kingsly being a few minutes ahead of his sister. Kingsly wore a bright shining platemail. He held up a spear implanted in the ground his helment resting on its butt. Rebeca wore a long flowing robe. She carried a book her deep black hair was tied back into a bun. She was a wizard and was known for her abilty to summon creatures a very usefull trick. Em looked at the reuion and said “Hi guys I’m Em brownie wants to save her home from a bunch of orcs and a mysterious posion anyone wanna help” Lionday snorted as well. “Yeah we wasted to much time as is lets go” Lupin said. With that we took off down the tunnel. Lupin leading Em behind him wanting to be between the swordsman and the wizard. Kingsly and Rebeca talked behind Em, while me and Saria held hands in the back, Lionday looked at me rolled his eyes then wen’t letting Em ride him for a bit. I was filled with hope, hope that my old life wasn’t gone completely and that I could always start a new one.
The men where ready to fight. We only had a small battalion at out disposial. The king wished to suplly us with more but he was faced with other matters that needed his attention. In truth the west elves wheren’t well liked by many folks, they thought of them as selfish tree huggers. I had no opnion on the matter I didn’t know any besides Rafel and he is a strange one. I took a seat at the table Mitos, Elacron, Alegred, Borrow and Sidrith. “So where are we with the troops” Elacron asked. “They are ready to go in the mourning, there takeing the path around the mountain” I said simply. After that the group split up around the bar, Sidrith turned in for the night, Alegred and Mitos had a few at the bar and Elacron went to feel around some mans pocket. It was me and Borrow. I quickly stood up very unconfertable at that moment. “I…..” I needed an excuss to leave “I have to go…..to the bathroom” I said lamely. Borrow seemingly unfazed by this “Okay hope you have fun in there” She said waveing me off. I scurried to the door of the bathroom and practicly broke it opening it so fast. It thumped into the wall the thump echoing hollowly.
The travels with the troop wasn’t bad, we where able to make good time and it was uneventful. No word from Rafel yet though I wondred where that elf was.
