"...I could tell you stories of my patients where I change all the details for confidentiality reasons?"

Permalink

"Sure, that sounds interesting." 

Permalink

Then Leareth can hear about interesting traumas and compulsive behaviors and mood issues and how Levris fixed them.

Permalink

It's very interesting! Leareth knows almost nothing about Mindhealing and most of the problems being described are very alien and confusing to him, but Levris explains it well and is pleasant to listen to and he's enjoying it. 

Permalink

Levris is sending over the lifebond that his lifebonded is VERY GOOD and interested in the MOST INTERESTING SUBJECT IN THE WORLD and Levris is HAPPY except for the part where he's vaguely concerned about his lifebonded being evil and not wanting to be lifebonded to him. 

Permalink

Leareth isn't exactly tracking the bigger picture very well, but in the moment at least, he's not upset at all about being lifebonded to Levris. He's tired out after a couple of candlemarks, though, and asks Levris to help him get back to bed.

He's still asleep when Levris hears some sort of commotion outside the room. There are raised voices. One of them says Leareth's name. 

Permalink

...well, that's not great. 

"Who's there?" Levris says.

Permalink

"Aw, come on, we have a treaty with you," a woman is saying, sounding quite irritated. "Also he's very dangerous, you really don't want him here." 

Permalink

"Think I found him," someone else says, and the hurried footsteps come right up to the door, which a moment later is flung open. 

There are three people standing there, all of them wearing Heralds' Whites. Other than the Whites, though, it's a sort of ridiculously motley arrangement. There's a young man, obviously blind, with scars on his face and a cane in his hand; the dark-complexioned woman beside him is tiny, though very fit-looking, and sports a wooden leg. 

Permalink

"Doesn't look like he'll put up much of a fight," the peg-legged woman says. 

Permalink

The third man, middle-aged and stolid-looking, steps forward. "Leareth?" His eyes fix on Levris. "He must be the traitor Mindhealer. We have orders to arrest both of you." 

Permalink

For some ridiculous reason, Levris's first response is offense at being called the traitor Mindhealer. He has not even done any treachery yet, he told everyone where he was like he was supposed to, and there is no law against cuddling people even if they are probably evil. 

Well, he thinks, the 'I'm innocent' defense clearly wasn't going to work out well for me anyway, and he reaches for a skill he hardly ever uses and sends to all three of them :Go to Haven. Forget Leareth is here.: 

Permalink

It seems to work for a moment! They go blank-faced and turn to walk away. 

–The peg-legged woman stops, with great effort. "Doesn't – no... Wrong. Rasha says... Going, help..." 

Permalink

Well, that's no good. 

:Sorry:, he sends, and then suddenly all three of them are hearing sights, smelling sounds, and seeing scents. 

Permalink

Leareth is busy struggling awake, gluey-headed. :Levris, what...?:

Permalink

:Heralds stopped by. I disabled them for now but I don't want to rely on this long-term. Should we go to the temple-- can you Gate--:

Permalink

Leareth tests his magic. Ouch.

:Not unless it is a dire emergency and I could not manage far: he admits. :I think we ought go to the temple, yes:

Permalink

:Okay, let's get out of here.:

Does Leareth need help standing?

Permalink

Yeah, he kind of does, he can move unaided but not fast, and it seems like maybe they want fast.

Permalink

Okay. Levris helps him walk out of the House of Healing and towards Levris's horse.

Permalink

The way to the stable is blocked by two furious-looking Companion mares.

Permalink

Leareth flinches and instinctively tries to shield both of them. He gets a sloppy barrier up and yelps in pain.

Permalink

Can you Mindheal a Companion? Let's find out.

Levris reaches in to try to rearrange their senses. 

Permalink

His Gift works on them but their minds are laid out oddly and it takes a few seconds to figure out where the sensory processing lives. Seconds which they use to make a run at Leareth’s barrier!
