    [PP-F5] Interlude: The Last Debt

    Just a normal day. They were all starting to blend together by now. Teion made her way through the town of Fortaleza, taking the same old paths from her blacksmith shop to the teleport plaza in the middle of the settlement. She had gotten used to longer walks, having to trek between cities in what felt like a year or so ago before Armadillo's disappearance. The streets were a bit more crowded than she preferred, but she moved along with the flow of foot traffic just as easily as the other players. She felt someone's shoulder brush up against her own, like maybe they had squeezed between her and another figure. She cast a glance over her shoulder, but with no idea who she had passed by, she ignored the fleeting feeling and continued on her way. She reached into a pouch at her side, only for her fingers to notice that the clasp was already undone. Her brows narrowed, and she reached inside more hurriedly, seconds away from pulling up her menus and scanning her inventory for anything that might turn up missing. Instead she felt the folded letter, pulling it out and looking at the unmarked outside with confusion. Her pace had slowed to a crawl, and when another player nearly knocked her off balance while trying to get by, she gave another searching glance behind her before breaking away from the main road. Her stomach was churning by the time she finished reading the letter. Her eyes stung with tears that threatened to fall, and a hot wind brushed across her cheeks. She struggled to look back up towards the crowd, but she did, uselessly looking over the players that went about their day around her. She clumsily found a nearby bench, sitting down and going back to staring at the words written out in her hands. She'd spend a long time re-reading and mulling over the letter's contents, stewing in her emotions, and softly muttering to herself under her breath, "Damn it..."
  2. "Oh, uhm, yeah. Okay." She agreed with his plan, standing still while Baldur put a few more steps between them and stood fully behind the mirror. The reflection of herself shrank a little and she could see even more of the elaborate chamber on either side of her along with how pristine the stone floor looked right beside its current musty state. She remained planted a bit longer, her eyes looking past herself and searching the room for some sort of clue. Was there something in the image that didn't match up with their surroundings? Suddenly the image of herself jumped out at her when it lifted a hand to wave. She almost felt a chill at the same time her stomach flipped. She stared, dumbstruck, as her reflection beckoned her along and walked calmly to one side and out of view. Teion tore her feet from the ground and made to follow, hurriedly motioning for Baldur to pivot the mirror so that she may follow her doppelganger. "Move it this way." She instructed plainly. She had to quickly glance from the mirror to the path she forged ahead of her and then back again. Eventually, she'd moved a quarter-turn around the room when the reflection of herself stopped and waved again. She stood in the center of a single stone slab that looked just as normal and uninteresting as the rest of the walls, floors, and pillars surrounding them. But she pivoted, tapping a finger against the back wall and then bringing it to her lips in a drawn-out 'shush', as if she was sharing some kind of secret. She turned and walked forward, vanishing behind the wall like a ghost simply phasing through to the next room. Teion stood, dumbfounded for a moment. Then it was suddenly unsettling looking into a mirror without a reflection. "Okay, uhh..." She started again, almost at a loss for how to describe the events to her new partner. "The reflection started moving on its own, and stopped at this wall." She turned to start inspecting the stone itself, first tapping gingerly on its surface and then pressing against it with her whole palm. If this was actually some kind of door, then they just needed to figure out how to open it. "Here, switch me." She finally suggested, turning back and closing the gap between her a Baldur. She offered to take the mirror, holding it up in place for him in the hopes his reflection might offer them another clue. ID#: 137257 | LD: 14

    [PP-F11] Opening Up

    "Yeah..." The word came out like an exhale, as she'd been holding her breath a couple of seconds without realizing. Her palms lay flat on her thighs, sitting on the front half of the sofa and leaning forward into her words. "Uhm..." She thought about where to start again. "I haven't really heard from the others in a while. And, I don't know if anyone else is as..." Her lips pursed after a pause, her hands hovering frozen in the air after they had moved and her eyes pointed up in a struggle to find the right words. She started the line over. "I don't know if everyone else is perfectly fine, or maybe they're not and they just aren't talking about it. I mean, I know I'm not a part of your guild anyway, but it kind of seems like everyone's...just gone their separate ways after that." Her hands fell back into her lap, and she eyed the glass of water sitting in front of her. She put off reaching for it a while longer. "And, sorry, I don't mean to come in here and bum you out." Her mouth briefly twisted to a crooked smile.

    The corner of her mouth picked up into a slightly forced crooked smile. "Hey." She greeted back, and drew in a deeper breath through her nostrils when Jomei asked the obvious question of what brought her there. "Uhm, just wanted to check up on you guys," It wasn't exactly a lie, but it was far from being straight-forward with her intentions. "Hey, uhh," She almost started over, hesitating, but the awkward way of speaking wasn't terribly unusual for her. "Can we talk?" Even after the two had settled to better share a conversation, Teion could still feel the tension in her fake muscles. She was uncomfortable, some terrible mixture of the unfamiliarity with Jomei's company, the pressure of his expectant gaze, and her own personal demons causing her to fidget, her fingers lightly squeezing each other. There was a bit of silence, though it had already been made clear that she was free to speak her mind. "So, you two are doing okay?" She finally asked. How rude was it to have practically assumed that was the case? She hadn't seen much of Jomei or Telrenya, but it wasn't difficult for her to imagine them as the type of people who 'have it together' most of the time.

    She stood with her hand clenched into a fist and hovering in front of the door. But of course, Teion hesitated. It had been a few days since the Holy Dragon Alliance parted ways after their horrifying encounters in what they could only call the 'haunted mansion'. Since then, Teion had accepted Ryo's offer to move in with him on Floor Eleven and she had spent most of her time adapting to the differences that come with moving from a desert town to the hills surrounding a Venice-style city. And the nightmares of their recent experiences in the death game didn't help the transition one bit. She felt like she had drawn farther back into her shell than she'd been in a long time, but there was some little urge inside of her to do something about it. To talk to someone about it. But that's easier said than done, right? She had wasted a good couple of minutes standing in front of the door to Jomei's shop, as well as his and Telrenya's home, but finally drew in a breath and knocked on the hard wood. @Jomei
  6. She looked around what felt like a catacomb, with cobwebs dripping down every abandoned corner, and dust kicking up with every step she took over the cracked stone floor. "Uh..." She hesitated, still a bit confused and disoriented. And also a little too reserved given their predicament. She drew in a sharp breath through her nose, and let it out in a sigh. If they wanted to get out of here, she needed to be a goddamn team player, she told herself. "I saw...myself? Like, when we first got kicked out of our avatars." She tried to explain, turning back and blinking in surprise when she saw Baldur had pulled the mirror free of the pillar it stood on. She looked over his shoulder, into the mirror as he angled it to include both of them in its frame. She made a face, her mouth twisting into a confused frown that her reflection shot back at her, and they both looked down at herself. Her old self wore casual clothing: a dark green knit sweater and a pair of jeans. Black socks on her feet, and brunette hair swept over her shoulder. Teion looked back up, her hand reaching for her collarbone. But instead of locks of hair and soft yarn meeting her touch, she felt the hard leather of her chestpiece under her fingers. She looked up, then turned to look over her shoulder. In the mirror, she stood in a warm glow of flickering torchlight, sconces visible on the wall behind her. She spotted what little remained of a fading, mildewed banner hanging on the wall, then looked back to see it proudly showing its bright colors in the mirror. Finally, a larger figure caught her eye at the edge of the glass. Baldur--or who she assumed to be Baldur--looked back at her. His features looked different, but the man matched up to the one holding the mirror. Stranger still, he looked almost ghostly. Everything about his reflection seemed paler, like a spirit was looking in on the scene. "That's... This thing is creepy." She mumbled, further unsettled. She looked away briefly, as if looking over more of the room. Her eyes flickered back, meeting Baldur's expectant gaze, and she shifted uncomfortably. "You look like a ghost or something." She said bluntly, tacking on, "But you look kinda different, too. I assume the same thing as me? I'm not sure what it means. Maybe this place is like a puzzle or something." ID#: 135946 | LD: 4

    [PP-F2-NK] All In, The Rebirth ~ Team A

    With the four of them finally united, Spencer, Teion, Ryo, and Jevi hurriedly made their way out of the hedge maze and back towards the looming mansion ahead of them. Bursting into the foyer, they found Hestia resting with a vigilant Kuro that nearly mistook them for another enemy. Half of their team had been reunited, but the monster of this mansion still lived, and their way out remained blocked at every point. The group made their way back upstairs in search of the rest of their friends. Sticking closely together now, it was only a matter of time before they found Telrenya and Jomei in the 'unfinished' wing of the massive building. The couple were shaky, and spent the remainder of the time with hands clasped tightly. The group swung around through rooms and corridors, evading or defeating what desperate obstacles the shadowy demon threw at them. Stumbling across Ruby and finding Kairi safely out of its clutches, the Holy Dragon Alliance was finally back together alongside their friends. It was finally time to take down this haunted house once and for all.

  8. A cool puff of air would brush past Ryo's ear, the culprit immediately stifling a laugh at his reaction as she straightened up behind him. Teion stood at the row of seats directly behind him, covering her mouth as she grinned. "Gotcha." Her long purple hair was tied up in a simple ponytail with a silver spider accessory clipped into place, its long silver legs stretching out over the edge of her bangs and the locks covering her temple. She was dressed casually, the hints of orange in her attire contrasting with the deep violet shade of her hair and lending nicely to the spirit of the season. Climbing over the row of seats that stood between them, she took a seat beside Ryo and leaned back, crossing her legs and pulling up her menus. "Did Pennyworth show you that flyer?" She assumed, making a selection and waiting for a bag of mixed snacks to materialize in her free hand. She pulled the package open and popped a tiny pretzel into her mouth and then tilted it towards Ryo as a peace offering.

    Teion looked around. The hedge maze surrounding them looked just as unforgiving as every other twist and turn the mansion had hit them with thus far. And though she couldn't see it from the garden behind the house, she assumed that the thick, thorny vines were still encircling the entire area. While she took a spin around to survey the area, she also glanced around the players' feet. Where was Yuki? She's scurried off a long time ago, right? And that cat with all those red eyes... She'd have to check her character page later, she thought. "Yeah, they probably all got split up, too." She commented, but her tone was quick to change when she spotted a figure standing down one of the paths flanked by tall shrubbery. "Hey, hold up." She called over her shoulder when Spencer started walking in the opposite direction. She waved an arm over her head, flagging Jevi as if she hadn't already seen them all. "Quick headcount, how many of the shadow doubles have we seen, and how many have we trashed?" She asked Spencer and Ryo.
  10. "Oh yeah, after you're done weighing the votes." Teion held her hand in front of her full mouth as she quipped back, chuckling as she finished off the last of a lime tart. She swallowed. "A swimsuit contest?" Her brows furrowed with distaste. "I mean, I'm not exactly wearing anything...impressive." She fiddled with the sleeve of her cropped jacket with her fingers. Before she'd given an official answer to his proposal, another pair of players approached them. Teion raised a brow at the blonde and brunette walking at each other's sides. "Oh. Uhh, no, not really." She shrugged at his careful intrusion and looked back to Ryo, her eyes asking him whether or not he knew these players. Figuring a conversation would shortly ensue, Teion eyed another tart--chocolate this time--and plucked the small treat from its place among the table. Taking a bite, she leaned a hair closer to Ryo and and directed an answer to him. "Ehh, sure. You think we need to sign up somewhere?" Entering the contest with Ryo @Ryo @Vigilon @Krysta
  11. ((will post stats laterrr)) "Mmmnn...." Teion rolled over at the sound of a notification ringing in her ears, followed by the sound of a ginger knock at the door. "Madam Teion...?" Pennyworth called out from the hallway, a gloved hand still hovering over the dark oak. He frowned, more with judgemental annoyance than with worry. "The young Master departed some time ago. Will you be joining him today?" He asked expectantly. Teion was inhibiting his duties the longer she occupied the master bedroom and sleeping the day away, and the butler was less than enthused by her lazy, lingering presence. She rolled over again when the sound of his voice reached her ears. Teion squinted against the sunlight that peeked through the curtains, and blinking awake she frowned at the empty white sheets beside her. Vaguely recalling a few hours prior when Ryo had gently told her of his leave, she pushed herself up and swung her legs over the edge of the bed. ""I'm up, I'm up..." She groaned. Axe at her back and clad in a set of amethyst cloth and brown leather adventuring gear, Teion didn't have to walk far through the Town of Beginnings before she found Ryo. Her hair, pulled up into a high ponytail, brushed against the back of her neck as she walked. She gave a little wave and wiggled the fingers of a gloved hand, noticing the blonde woman as they were engaged in conversation. "Yo." She greeted the both of them. "Did you wanna get going right away?" She stopped at Ryo's side.
  12. "Pfft!" Teion stifled a laugh when Ryo practically latched himself around Joemi's waist in greeting, immediately teasing the man about the blonde-haired host who had been standing across from him. She relaxed a bit, in the presence of at least two familiar faces now among the other strangers. She just barely caught wind of Kityuisa's introduction and gave a small wave. Nobody was waiting on her name, and it seemed others were showing up to expand their small half-circle of players. Teion looked around, wondering if there was anyone else they might recognize attending, but her gaze fell short. Instead, she gave a small tug at Ryo's short sleeve and pointed a finger just a few steps away to a long table that was still decorated with all manner of snacks, treats, and drinks. "Free food?" She asked in a low voice with a smile. She wandered over herself, eyeing the spread before picking up a small tart with a lime green surface. She took a bite, and her eyes shifted towards the sea in the distance. "It's nice out here." She commented. "I wonder if these areas ever get bad weather or something." @Ryo
  13. Teion was truly walking in on some kind of scene from a day-time sitcom. She stared for a moment, the door between the entryway and the kitchen swinging back and forth behind her as it closed to a close, and didn't know whether she should laugh or shake her head in sympathy. She did both, but her chuckles subsided as she nervously watched Yuki crawling across Ryo's and Pennyworth's bodies, stopping once or twice to flex her legs and spin some more webbing around some kitchen tool or another and affix it to the trapped pair. She'd never seen a spider with 'personality' before. Yuki was rebellious, almost sassy as she settled herself on top of a large island counter to observe her work. Teion hesitated. "I dont, uhh... I dunno about housebreaking a spider." Yuki chirped and her beady eyes moved between the three, causing Teion to tense up as if she might become the familiar's next victim. She cleared her throat. "Right, uhm," She turned to Yuki, "is it okay if I get them off the fridge?" She asked, pausing for her to chirp again, a hint of annoyance detectable in the sounds. Yuki skittered off, retreating through the swinging door past Teion and likely wandering off to a different part of the house entirely. She sighed with relief when the massive spider was gone. She was about to reach for a large kitchen knife when she caught a disapproving scowl from Pennyworth as she would dare misuse such a vital tool to cut them free like some sort of barbarian. Teion rolled her eyes, instead opening her inventory to pick out some cheap dagger she hadn't gotten around to selling off, and began to work on slicing through the webbing surrounding Ryo first. It came off in large chunks, eventually falling to the ground and bursting into tiny pixels when its durability had dropped to zero.
  14. "You ready to go?" Teion called past the cracked bathroom door. She was almost finished affixing a sparkling silver hair clip beside the bundle of violet hair that had been pulled up so as not to fall past her shoulders. A simple black bow was tied up against the back of her neck, the straps of her swimsuit looping around to one thick band across the middle of her back. Some white, ruffled trim around around the edges, with her bottom half sporting a matching piece. At least half of it was covered up, however, by the wrap she wore tied around her wait, the draped cloth a mixture of reds, oranges, and whites that reminded her of a gorgeous sunset. As Teion stepped out into the large master bedroom of Ryo's estate she also grabbed a deep red half-length jacket and pulled the piece on to cover her shoulders. She couldn't help but frown. The beach was great, but a party was less so. Still, it had been too long since she and Ryo had been out to enjoy themselves with actual company. In fact, she could hardly recall any such events outside of hanging out with his guildmates every so often. It had been months now since they started going steady, and once she spotted him in the room she made her way over and planted a quick kiss on his cheek. "I haven't asked if anyone we know is going." She shrugged. "We might have to actually go out and socialize." Her expression twisted into a playful grimace. She'd finally agreed to start spending her nights at the mansion with him rather than holed away in her blacksmith shop, but she was just starting to feel cooped up. As luxurious as a mansion was, it started to get a bit lonely when only she, Ryo, and Pennyworth were around to fill the space. @Ryo
