#487288 ZONE - Castle Greywatch (A Dying Breed - START)

It didn't take Kate long to find a hammer, in this room full of weapons and tools, and pry the board up. Underneath, they found a huge, heavy chest - this one unlocked. Throwing back the lid, they saw something else immensely organized stash of... Everything.

Crestwell frowned as he took in the veritable treasure trove of contraband in front of him.

"Well inquisitor, it looks like Voros has been keeping secrets." He eyed a couple of the bottles with distaste. "Cheap horse piss. The man has no class."

He sighed heavily at the pile of syringes. "These alone are enough to end his time as a Venator," he explained softly to Kate, gingerly picking one up and examining it. "It wasn't a decision I agreed with, but it's one that's pretty set in stone. Before your time I imagine, Asti."

He turned the syringe over in his hand. "I have no idea what's in this, and that's not a common position for me to be in."

He sighed again, and handed the Syringe to Asti. "Any ideas?"

Krystia stared absently as she watched the other woman walk away. She tore her gaze away, making a decision. She hadn't got where she was today without being bold.

She strode purposefully over to the group that had formed around Caiden. She waited for a gap in the conversation and then struck, walking over to the man and putting a firm hand on his firmer bicep.

"I apologise for that. Lyneth had some.. important business to discuss."

She pulled slightly, attempting to unbalance him as Lyneth had suggested. She would have been more fruitful trying to unbalance the castle.

"So, Caiden," she continued in a fair approximation of Lyneth's more sultry tones, "I look forward to working with you. I'm sure you can show me so much."

She squeezed the bicep and smiled. Lyneth said smile. Was this enough of a smile?

Brys grinned, before suddenly dropping Krystia into a low dip. "Dont lose control." She winked teasingly, lifting Krystia up. "You just gotta keep your target a little off-balance. That's what sets a date apart from a monster hunt." She smiled wryly. "Push too hard and you make them uncomfortable, push too little and you risk losing control."

Krystia grinned, still blushing. "Thank you so much!" She pulled herself up out of the dip. "I don't know how to thank you."

She pulled Lyneth into a close hug.

If I wasn't clear on it, Krystia is going to follow Caiden, while Crestwell will most likely go with Kate (because they seem to be hitting it off and I find that hilarious), although I don't know if it would be better for him to stay in the castle).

Crestwell shook his head.

"We talk to any of them, we risk tipping him off. As it is, everyone is most likely still downstairs. We have an opportunity now, before he has the chance to hide anything."

"Told me the fella saved his neck many a time, but got zapped by some kind of demonic magic. Thats why he left civilization, wasnt sure if he might be a danger to others, whatever got done to him. Though if hes back, hopefully that means his problems got solved."

Crestwell stiffened.

"Son of a.. I was never quite sure of the boy, not since Gwen. But this is something else." He gingerly pulled himself out of his chair. "We may have a monster or a demon in our midst." He gestured for the others to get up.

"I say we find out exactly what it is that Voros doesn't want us to find in his quarters.

"Though now that ya mention suspects in your order, my friend did keep going on and on about a friend he made in the Venatori that disappeared for his own personal reasons. Some kinda self-imposed exile, real Achaean Tragedy-like." She leaned and leered in Brennus direction. "Can't remember the poor buggers name for the life of me, but does that match the story of one of your people out there, boss-man?"

Crestwell finished his drink qnd carefully set the tumbler down before resting his chin in his open hand.

"There are a few that fit that description, but I have a strong suspicion as to the most likely."

His brow furrowed as he turned to face Brennus.

"The timing of his return is too convenient for my liking. Add the protest of opening quarters and we start to get a picture."

He turned back to Kate.

"What did your friend have to say about this man and his exile. Did he ever talk of the order?"

In one smooth motion she spun around Krystia, taking the younger woman by her shoulders. Look em in the eye, puff up your chest, she followed her own advice in steps as she listed them off, and remember to smile, sweetie. Thats the most important thing. Now, you try!

Krystia hesitated slightly, trying to ignore how close the other woman's face was to hers. Or the puffed out... chest. By Forseti, Lyneth's teeth were absolutely perfect. So were her..

"So it's sort of like cutting a purse? Or fighting a monster. Plan your movements, then take control of the situation." She nodded to herself.

She smiled nervously. "I can do that.

Lyneth's hands were still on her shoulders, so after a slightly awkward attempt at reaching round them she settled for placing them round her waist, pulling her lightly closer.

"What now?"

Horace Meliora. Crestwell thought he remembered the man; he'd showed a lot of promise only to have his career cut tragically short. He could sympathise.

"The kinda bossy one, your stand-in leader or something, mentioned other Venatori were missing, too? I've been thinking that maybe Silvius and his partner were the last to disappear, and maybe he noticed the first ones and figured they weren't a coincidence? You lot'd probably know more than me on that front."

Crestwell smirked into his brandy at Kate's description of Brennus, before continuing to slowly sip. His damaged jaw made drinking slow, but he liked to savour the taste anyway.

"Either way," Brennus was saying, "the Venatori shouldn't suspect each other."

Crestwell frowned slightly.

"I wish I could agree with you on that. Without trust between us, the order is nothing, that's true. But at the same time, it's naive to dismiss the possibility of a traitor among us."

He paused to take another sip.

"It really comes down to motive. Who among us would wish to harm their own?" He examined the glass thoughtfully before turning to Kate.

"Who knows you came here? Did anyone show an undue interest in your plans?"

Crestwell hobbled over to a desk, opening drawers until he found what he was after. The thick tome was entitled 'Binsbent's Treatise on Lunar Influence'. With a lopsided smile, he opened the thick tome, revealing a hollowed out compartment containing a small bottle and some glasses.

"The good stuff," He explained, pouring a small amount of brandy into each glass. He slowly lowered himself into a worn chair, then gestured at the others to take the brandy.

"Let's start from the beginning, if you don't mind. How do you know Silvius?"

Is it truly that much of a pleasure to meet me? My, and I thought you had the hots for Voros She giggled, before offering Krystia a gentle pat on the shoulder.

Krystia blushed a deep crimson.

"I.. I mean"

I joke, Krystia. As I was saying, I mean to give you some pointers on approaching a man like Caiden. Unless you truly prefer spending your time with a girl like me.

Krystia's mouth felt very dry. She'd never really thought about another woman in ... that way before today, but now the images just wouldn't stop. Her own mind was betraying Caiden!

She tried to ignore the soft hand still on her shoulder.

"Aren't you and..." She paused, "the fancy nobleman. You know."

Reaching a decision, she exhaled. "I don't really know much about this kind of thing. I've never..." She trailed off for what felt like the thousandth time. "But I know Caiden feels something for me, I can see it in his eye."

"I'm more of a one on one girl myself." She winked. "I just wanted to give you a little help, ah"

Krystia swallowed audibly. It suddenly felt a lot hotter than the draughty old castle had any right to be.

The two stood in silence for a second before the other woman cleared her throat.

"...I cant say I really recall your name, I apologize." She flashed another smile. "I'm Lyneth, and you're?"

"Krystia" Krystia mumbled faintly. "I'm pleasured to meet you. Oh gods, no, it's a pleasure. We should go and..."

She gestured vaguely in the direction of nothing in particular and trailed off.

If this is still open for business then I will definitely post something shortly. I hope.

Krystia spluttered indignantly as Lyneth dragged her away. She glanced at Caiden and noticed he was looking away. Clearly just as hurt as she was.

"What are you doing!?" She hissed. Krystia took a deep breath to centre herself. Wow, the other woman smelled really good.

"Are you trying to steal Caiden from me? Or did you think we could share him?" Which would be fine, she caught herself thinking.

"Pleasure to meet you both."

Pleasure! Caiden Voros took pleasure from meeting her! Maybe he felt the same way. That spark. Krystia beamed widely, making an effort to avoid Araven's gaze. She knew what he'd say.

"The pleasure is ours." she replied. She'd seen Lyneth looking very seductive earlier, what was it she'd done? It had been very educational.

She extended her hand towards Caiden in what he hoped was a dainty way, and pouted slightly.
