Raven walked up to them and smiled, Bishop close behind. They were covered in soot and soaking wet. They sat in the pond for 1 hour waiting for the fire to go out, and even when they began to leave, there was still a patch of fire around somewhere.
When Raven came into view over a small slope, she was impacted as Shandra hugged her. Raven slowly put her hands on her looked over her shoulder. Casavir looked at her with relief andRaven gave him a smile.
"I'm so happy your alive." Shandra whispered to her. "I don't know what I would've done without you."
"Uh, Shandra..." Raven answered. "Your hug is great and all... But I'm bleeding severly on you."
Shandra pulled back to see her armor covered in blood. "Oh my god!" Shandra gasped. "Your bleeding alot!"
"Yah, I was kinda stabbed, scratched, and punched several times, you seem to bleed when that happens." Raven smiled brightly at her. "I would hug you all but I think I need some stitching done."
Raven began walking. "Oh." She said stopping. "Thanks for keeping in charge, Casavir." She gave him a friendly wink and comtiued walking.
It soon began to rain. It was more of a mist than droplets but still got every one soaked. They shuffled on miserbly. They contiued on until they set up one big tent for all of them. Raven stood in the middle, brushing her hair, witch was sticking to her forehead. They all laid out their bedrolls and streched out. Raven then grapped the bottom of her shirt and pulled it over her head. Her tattoos showing off on her skin.
"Raven, what are you doing?" Casavir asked, entering the tent. He tried not to look below her neck.
"I need you to stitch me up." Raven said, handing him his aid kit. "I can't bleed forever you know, and I've been feeling a bit light headed lately."
Casavir took the kit and looked at the deep gash under her arm. He pullled out a needle and wire. He cleaned the wound with a wet cloth, causing Raven to gasp and wince ever so slightly in pain. He then started to carefully stitch up her wound. Raven stood stalk-still, like a scared animal frozen. Casavir tried had not to cause Raven much pain, but since it had to be done, he did it quickly and carefully.
When he was done, Raven examined the stitches. "It's great, thank you." She smiled at him, giving him a warm feeling inside.
Casavir began wrapping a thick, but soft, cloth around her chest. It covered her whole chest, and looked like a belly shirt. She then began to pull her once-were-pants up more and gestured for Casavir to countiue. He then repeated his past actions, of washing, stitching, and wrapping.
When they were done, Raven threw on her shirt and sat down on her bedroll. She sat there for a bit, rubbing her bruised eyebrow, a distant expression on her face, but there was somethng else, pain maybe.
"Raven, your alive!" Duncan said, wrapping his arms around her.
"No." Raven said, a smug smile on her face. "I'm a ghost."
Duncan scowled lightly at her and gave her a squeeze before letting her go.
"Well tell us all about it, I've been dieing to know the details." Neeshka said.
Raven yawned. "Alright, but I'm going to need the strongest damn ale in this place, 'cause I haven't had a drink in a week."
Raven's story: Part 1
"I got your b-" Casavir said.
Raven gave him a shove. "GO!"
The rock collapsed behind him and Raven sighed. She turned her attention back to Aris.
He was laughing menacingly. "No where to go now, she-devil. You're all mine."
"You know, a drunk said that to me once." Raven said, giving an innocent look and rubbing her chin. "I killed him... with a fork."
Aris moved quickly, slashing at her. Raven dodged one blow, but the other caught her leg. She mad no noise, no indication that she was hit, because she could barely feel it and Aris was on her again. He slashed down, up, sideways, squareways, some-more-ways. She dodged most, and slashed his arms and legs, barely able to reach his chest at his speed.
He stopped and hissed at her through his teeth. "You will never leave here alive!"
Raven nodded. "Why do they all say that? Can't any one come up with a catching phrase like 'I'ma chop off your arm and kill you with it.' But no it's always 'You will never leave'"
Aris rolled his eyes. "What are you tal-"
Raven moved quickly, she slashed his chest across then came back and slashed it in another direction giving him a bloody X on his chest. He howled in pain and hit her with the back of his arm, causing her to crash into the wall, then he was upon her he slashed at her throat and chest with no avail. She blocked it with her daggers and rolled out from under him. She jumped up and quickly threw her left dagger at him, covering the little distance between him, it landed in his chest.
He howled again and slashed quicker than ever before. Raven wen't to jump out of the way, but he slashed her side, right under her arm.
She grunted as she rolled head first out of the way. Aris jumped at her, but Raven kicked the dagger in his chest deeper with the flat of her boot. She hit him again and again, until the handle was gone in his chest. He stood there, swaying side to side until a throwing dagger planted itself right in the middle of his eyes. He fell back and slowly died.
Raven stood there for a moment, forgetting about the whole place shaking for a minute then calmly continued on. She found a dark hall way. She ran into a bunch of werewolves who were trying to find a way out. They stopped right infront of her and Raven had to cover her mouth from gasping.
"The main entrance has collasped!" One said, the closest to her.
"We must find a way out." A bigger werewolf said.
Then they disappeered in the dark. Raven sighed and contiued on. So, the exit to the castle was gone... great, Raven thought. Raven then remembered. There was a room with a window, she could jump through. Raven smiled to herself wickly and tried to recount where the room was. She wen't down the hallway, checking every room until she finally found it.
The angel playing the lute was still there. Raven got close to the window, trying to see out it but the damnable angel was in the way. She listen to the enterances collapsing one by one. Raven backed away a little bit and ran for the window. She smashed through the window and gasped at how high up she was. She fell and as she looked down she saw a deep river and tried to straighten herself as best she could before she hit the water.
She hit her head on a rock when she hit the water, and got knocked out.
