"You're a king? Fancy that. It's good to meet you."

"Right. If you don't mind, Ildan, we'd like to get through having all of us do a summons. Jaysen, you next?" 

Permalink

Savil glances at Cam for confirmation, and then concentrates on dismissing Ildan. 

Permalink

Cam thumbs-up this and makes another circle till they've gotten through everybody in the room.

Randi sighs, rubbing his shoulder. It's aching for some reason. "I guess we should do Tran next. Assuming we can get him to even draw a line on a piece of paper, he's not - apparently he hasn't been very responsive." 

Permalink

"...I think, possibly, before we try Tran, we should check if Companions can do it, and maybe hear from Van and Yfandes about what him dying did to their bond."

Permalink

"Most of our Companions are still, er. Not speaking to us." 

Permalink

"- I could probably ask Sondra. I've - avoided getting her that upset with me by...I guess not talking to her about any of the things happening." 

Permalink

"Is Delian available to try it, if you don't want to risk bringing it up with Sondra right now?"

Permalink

"Oh. ...Maybe? He's in the shielded room with Tran right now." 

Permalink

"We could check with Melody if she thinks it's an all right time to interrupt." 

Permalink

"Good idea. Did one of you Mindspeak Healers' about sourcing kids for the fairies?"

Permalink

Shavri nods. "There's an orphanage in town, they've got records of all the children sent there - they're looking for kids who match what he requested. Just a minute, I'm going to go check if Melody is interruptible right now..." She slips out.

Savil paces. Does some more unproductive fretting about Vanyel. She misses Kellan bitterly. She would ask Taver for an update, except for the part where Taver is acting bafflingly and she's really mad at him. 

Permalink

Melody follows Savil back into the room a couple of minutes later. 

"Oh, you must be Cam." She smiles at him. "I'm Melody. You were wondering about asking Delian to do something?" 

Permalink

"Yeah, uh, we are having people summon daeva so they can turn into daeva when they die, and don't know yet if Companions can, and are not sure of the wisdom of interrupting any of them but Delian seems worth a try."

Permalink

"It's not the worst time for it. Herald Tantras is asleep right now. Delian is...badly shaken, but he's found his balance a little, I think." 

She turns to Randi. "Where are the other Companions, anyway? Delian said it - seemed as though it wasn't just him and Taver, having the...difficulties in question." 

Permalink

Randi blinks stupidly at her for a moment. "I, er, I'm not sure? ...I mean, Yfandes is with Vanyel. Sondra's - probably in the stables, but I haven't, um, checked. In a while." 

Permalink

Melody folds her arms. "You know, this might go better if I could talk to them as well." 

Permalink

"If you - what..." Randi trails off. 

Permalink

"Are you thinking it's weird to suggest that because it's not done? Because Companions just don't talk to outsiders?" Melody throws up her hands. "Nothing about this situation is the usual way things are done!" 

Permalink

"It's not, is it." Shavri looks at the floor. "Well, let's go talk to Delian for a start. And then I guess we can try to sort out where Kellan and Rohan are." 

Permalink

Melody turns back to Cam. "Follow me?" 

Permalink

"Sure thing." Follow follow.

Permalink

Herald Tantras' hospital room is bigger, and comes with a Companion-sized door and stall attached. His Companion isn't currently in the stall, though; he's standing right by the bed, muzzle resting gently against Tran's shoulder. 

Tran is indeed asleep. He looks...pretty bad. Pale, his hair a disheveled tangle, dark circles under his eyes.
