PostSubject: The Nightmares.   Fri Dec 31, 2010 5:08 am

(( Just a short story line ive had going on for a while and with encouragement, have written down, its weird seeing how much has happened when it didnt seem like alot, its the first time ive ever wrote anything thats involved anything in game too, anyhow, enjoy, hopefully, hehe Smile. ))

Leov sat, staring down at the most recent letter she had received, her thoughts racing over in her head again, what did he mean her nightmares and dreams were of no use to him anymore? She had no information for him or anyone else, only her memories, her nightmares of Roike being murdered and her family being slaughtered infront of her as a young child. Was it the fact that she'd helped Roike and Tyridon all those years ago? Was that what he wanted, information on The Dead Rose, but then how was he to know she was involved, didn't the two men cover it up so well nobody knew she was involved? Why, she asked herself, why would he want her dead after so long, why would he pay such a high price for her nightmares and her life, 5000 gold pieces to three different mercenary companies and there was only one mercenary company that came to mind for her. Just then a loud firm knock came to the door and her thoughts were stopped in their tracks, she stared at the door, not making a noise and the knocking persisted, "Who is it?" she yelled finally, and the the answer returned was "Me"...

She knew the voice, she'd heard it plenty of times before, she swallowed, trying to stop the scared feeling she was having and slowly she walked to the door, opening it slowly, he pushed through and her thoughts were made clear. There he stood, The Last Leaf commander, right infront of her, she stared up at him, smiling slightly as he started to tell her about a contract he'd received. She grimaced slightly and nodded, he suddenly fell quiet and just looked at her, smiled and then put her mind to rest, telling her how he'd torn up the contract, how he'd thrown the money away. He threw his hood off carelessly and as he wrapped his arms around her waist in an attempt to comfort her, Duskshade walked in, agreeing and saying that the letter had been burnt to cinders in the lava, and that they'd help her and protect her as much as they could, re-assured her that her life will not be lost whilst they were around. Leov just nodded and smiled at the two men. Nirrim, The Last Leaf commander, was moving behind her and wrapping his arms around her, keeping her close as he spoke to Duskshade about what must be done next. Duskshade did nothing more but nod as he flicked idly through a book marked "Ravenshade".

Leov couldn't help herself falling back into her same train of thought as the men spoke over her, Nirrim's arms still wrapped around her, one thought came to mind, why, why would they protect her when they'd hurt her friends. And why when they know she doesn't trust them, and yet, here they were, sat, talking of how best to keep her safe and away from harm, trying to figure out just who the Highlord was and why he wanted her dreams and nightmares. She smiled to herself slightly, perhaps all those lectures and the fact she spent so long trying to work out what had culminated previously to Helfdane being kidnapped had been worth it, but did she dare to trust them fully? Leov's train of thought was suddenly broken again as a voice broke into them. "Leov?" she shook her head and turned to face the direction of the voice, her face reddening in a blush, she looked up meeting eye to eye with Nirrim, "I think I need a drink." she said, and silently she descended the stairs, walking off into her kitchen, she filled the glass turning to find Nirrim staring at her bed, apparently in shock at the frilly pillows and girlyness decorating it. As he sat down on it, she walked over to him, glass in hand and sat beside him as she sipped slowly, the water inside wobbling slightly as Leov's fear got the better of her, he just stared down into the floor occasionally looking up at Leov, seemingly lost in thought.

She just smiled and nodded, watching him, not knowing what to say or do, and before she knew it, her train of thought had come back and she was lost in her own little world and the only thing she felt outside of it was Nirrim taking her hand in his gently. This time, her thoughts wandered to the night with Karkun, when he'd come to talk with Gibbzy and how Gibbzy had teleported away a moment previously, how Karkun stood and threatened them, threathened her friends, how she eventually duelled him and won. How Ishsah had turned up in the mean time and how she was ordered from her fight with Karkun straight into battle with Ishsah by Captain Scully, and how she did as she was told. How she'd run around after Ishsah had finally retreated, helping to get Iselinn back on her feet and make sure that everyone was okay only to pass out once she'd calmed down and everyone had left. Three days they told her she'd been passed out, and to the extent of her injuries she was still unsure. They told her she had been healed by everyone, Shamans, Priests, Paladins, even a warlock at one point tried to help, everyone they could think of had tried, until finally they received news from Gibbzy's best friend, who informed him she was stuck in her nightmares and could not get out. They would have to find a druid to help her and how it could not be Leak herself to do it as she stayed with Leov to keep her safe, and so they found a druid. Leov knew not of her or his name still, and nobody had ever answered her when she asked, but that was when this all started. Her nightmares had started this off, and she was only led out of the constant loop by the thought of the night she comendered Calahan's X-Ray goggles with Iselinn, she laughed slightly.

Hadn't things gotten worse and not better though, she'd been ill for months if he wanted her nightmares and nobody had noticed, apart from a select few. When she tried to tell the knights they were either nowhere to be found or they didn't listen, after she'd been woken up from her unconscious state, she had been unsteady on her feet, passing out at least once a day, sometimes three, but only for a few moments here and there, she felt as though a part of her soul was missing and the nightmares had started again. Only this time she could wake from them without any help. Why had none of them noticed, weren't they supposed to be her friends? Why was it the men that she had been told not to trust that were sat in her house, protecting her, keeping her safe now, why had the Knights not been around since the dinner party? Why were only two of them speaking to her, yes, she spoke to the Leaf, but did they not realize she did it to find out the whole story from all sides. She didn't blame them for being mad at the Leaf, she understood she truly did, but surely they could just listen to her, let her explain why she had to find out...

Leov shook her head, returning back to reality, she looked around and found Duskshade now sat on top of her bookshelf, she frowned a little, voices of the two men filling her head again as they discussed what should be done in more detail. Duskshade in his usual manner was giving out the impression that he really didn't care, and that he cared for nothing but himself. Leov had her suspicions that this wasn't the case, but he hid them rather well, and Nirrim just sat beside her, asking her for any information on who the Highlord could be. Duskshade so helpfully throwing in a sarcastic comment here and there for good measure she was sure.

Eventually, once he'd asked her all he could think of, Nirrim stood from the bed, hugged her and informed her he needed to talk to her alone tomorrow and that it was important. She nodded and let him out, returning the hug and watching him leave before turning to face Duskshade, still sat on top of her bookshelf. Not a lot was said for a very long time that night, both seemingly lost in thought, Leov going over all her previous thoughts, not to mention how she could trust two men to keep her safe when they had almost killed two of her friends, even if Nirrim had saved her life twice now, but for some reason she did, she must do in some form, or they wouldn't be in her house right now, whether she trusted them fully or not was another matter.

Duskshade slid down from the bookshelf, walked over to her and just stared at her, Leov gulped and sudden thoughts of him killing her crossed her mind, and all she could do was cling to her glass and try not to look scared, although she feared she was failing at that also, and she hated herself for it, yet somehow within seconds, she felt his arms around her whilst being insulted, she was being hugged, putting down the glass she returned it and laughed slightly. Duskshade she thought, may be a lot of things, but he's clearly not as bad as he makes out, neither of them are, Duskshade quickly stood up as the hug was returned and left the house, saying he'd be back later to check on her and instinctively, Leov said the prayer and spell taught to her by her father and brought up the shield that covered the house, made to protect her from any and all harm, whilst within the house at least, she lied down, unfolding the letter she just stared at it again, trying to make out the last part of the signature. "Highlord...." she whispered. ''Who are you and why do you want me dead?'' she thought to herself, the darkness now surrounding her as her eyes slowly closed and she fell to sleep.

She woke up, fear holding her tightly, woken by a scream she looked around the room before realizing it had actually come from her, she sat in bed a while, thinking it all through, asking herself the same questions she had been for months now without being able to truly answer them, before looking up to the clock and taking note that it was 6am the next morning and she'd survived the night, thankfully, she rose from the bed and walked over to her bathroom, undressed and showered, mostly she just stood there, letting the water cascade over her, her thoughts taking hold again, eventually the hot water ran out and she was forced back to reality. Stepping out of the shower as she turned it off she dried herself and got dressed, leaving the bathroom and making herself breakfast and something to drink, her thoughts not leaving her alone for a moments rest, she finished her food, and went to brush her teeth, once done she picked up a book and headed up the stairs.

Leov stirred, looking up she found herself at the top of the stairs in pain as her head rested against the wall, she lied there for a moment, knowing she'd passed out again she frowned, and called herself weak and stupid to allow such things to happen before pulling herself up, and walking to the chair in her living room, shaking slightly as she took a slow sip from a glass of juice, still cold on the table, confirming that she had not been passed out for long. Continuing to sip the juice, she resigned herself to not going out, after being told she was under house arrest until they knew more, she picked up her book and began to read, getting lost once again in thoughts but this time mixed with the words from her book also.

A knock came on the balcony door, and once again her thoughts were broken, putting down the book she yelled at the locked door for confirmation of who it was and realized that time had really flown past, the person replying with " It's an assassin, come to take your life.", her eyes widened in fear before her mind registered that it was Nirrim's voice, and slowly she undid the countless locks and opens the door, Nirrim walking forward as Leov just stood frowning at him in disappointment. "That's not funny." came her voice, and he just nodded as he wrapped his arms around her, hugging her, he looked down at her as he stepped back, removing his hood he smiled "Leov, I have something I need to to tell you. I-.." Nirrim's voice trailed off as there came a knock at the front door. Leov smiled and asked him to hold the thought as she went and answered the door, Nirrim nodded in reply as he watched her leave. Heading downstairs she opened the door slowly, to be faced with Sadine standing there. Leov smiled brightly and ushered her into the house, all the while Sadine stood, looking confused as she leant forward and hugged Leov in return, "Where have you been, Good One?!" came Sadine's voice, and Leov just giggled and began to tell Sadine all about the letter, and how she was under house arrest and protection of The Last Leaf, how there were two mercenary companies after her and how it all had something to do with her dreams and nightmares. With this, Leov took the letter she had folded up in the pocket of her dress and handed it to Sadine, who read it with a worried look on her face before staring up at her. "Where's Nirrim now?" she asked, and Leov blushed as she finally remembered that she'd left him upstairs, and it had been at least an hour, running away she flew up the stairs to find Nirrim patiently sitting on the ledge of the balcony, she smiled at him and told him it was Sadine and that she wanted to speak to him. He just stood pulling up his hood in the process, nodded and followed Leov down the stairs to Sadine, where they spoke in whispers making sure Leov heard almost nothing if anything about what it could be.

Sadine turned to Leov and smiled, trying not to look worried, she asked if she was free to go out for a girl-talk in a couple of days, but that she'd have to leave for now as she had some things to deal with. Leov nodded and smiled, "I should be and if I'm not in Goldshire, I'll be here and we can kick the boys out.", Leov and Sadine both just giggled and with that Sadine hugged her and told her to be safe. Leov nodded and said "Safe travels, Evil One." Leov smiled as she said it, and Sadine nodded and giggled slightly as she left, opening the door to find Gibbzy, who was soon followed by Helfdane, and with this, Nirrim left as Leov explained and repeated all that she had just told Sadine. The boys standing there, frowning and nodding, clearly not approving that Leov was being kept house bound or that The Last Leaf were protecting her. Leov nodded as they voiced their concerns, and explained that she understood their worries, but that surely they would rather her kept safe then in harms way and maybe even dead, the two men fell quiet and just nodded in response drawing their weapons suddenly Leov jumped as there came a scratch at the door, "Are you expecting anyone, Leov?" Gibbzy's voice was now filling her mind, looking at him she shook her head in response, and he moved to open the door, a tiger walking in as he opened it. Leov smiled, relieved as Rathlan came and sat beside her, purring gently.

The two men left, and she knew they would be plotting something. Rathlan had eaten Gibbzy's cloak, and Gibbzy had set Rathlan's tail on fire, which in turn, made Rathlan fall from the balcony onto the crates and a splinter had penetrated his chest. Leov had used all her energy to heal him and was now extremely tired, huddled up to the cat as he rested, she placed her face on him, as tears began to stream down her face the fear taking over and the thoughts, good and bad, filling her head just made the tears come all the more easily, a voice suddenly filled the room as she cried, "Something wrong?" she looked up suddenly, wiping her eyes as Nirrim stood infront of her, shaking her head, "No, nothing, why?" she asked, Rathlan got up, purring he licked her hand and headed up the stairs. Nirrim shook his head, walking forward he wrapped his arms around her and held her close, a sudden crash from the upstairs breaking them apart, followed by a voice neither recognised. "...The Devil..." Leov frowned at the voice, running upstairs she found a man stood on her landing, dressed in nothing but trousers and bracers. Leov just stood and stared, Nirrim suddenly standing infront of her. "Who is he?" Nirrim asked and Leov just shook her head, "No idea.. Sir, who are you, how and why are you in my house?" She looked at Nirrim worriedly who walked towards him as the man gave nothing but confusing answers. Nirrim stabbed his knee, twisting his hand the blade with it as the man fell to the ground, "Who are you?" Nirrim growled, the man just stared at him for a while before answering, "Who are you, and who is she?" he looked over to Leov as Nirrim made the man stand again pulling his dagger out. The man grinned and began to jump around flirting slightly with Leov as he began to scream " I can dance all night, baby!!" Nirrim walked back towards him and punched the man in the side of the head, sending him into the wall, the man sliding down it and lying unconscious on Leov's floor, Leov ran forward, sitting beside the man she began to heal him quickly. "Nirrim, I know he's not meant to be here, but there was no need for that.." she looked up at Nirrim and frowned, as he watched her, the man reawakening, he sat up slowly, as she noticed the marks on his chest she gasped, "Rathlan!? Rathlan Nightbloom!? I thought you said you couldn't get into your human form!?" the man just shrugged, "Who are you?" he asked, Leov frowned, "Surely you know who I am, you protect me often enough. I'm Leov Lahnmaiden, remember?" the man shook his head and she turned to Nirrim as Rathlan headed out onto the balcony, she smiled slightly, "It's Rathlan, he's fine...I think." Nirrim just looked at her, "Why do you have half naked men in your house?" Leov looked confused... "I don't" she replied, as Rathlan walked in with a shirt on, " I think he likes you." Nirrim said as he eyed Rathlan up and down, Leov just blushed as she giggled, shaking her head, "I think you're being silly, ofcourse he doesn't.", For the rest of the time Rathlan remained in the house, Nirrim didn't take his eyes off him, watching him to make sure he didn't go near Leov, finally Rathlan returned to his cat form, and curled up with her, eventually the man and the tiger left her to rest for the night.

PostSubject: Re: The Nightmares.   Fri Dec 31, 2010 5:10 am

Three days had passed now since the letter had been received and nobody had attempted anything, or at least not that she'd seen. The Last Leaf had been true to their word and had been constantly watching her, Duskshade mostly, he was always around to talk to and to stop her from getting bored. It was almost Winter Veil's day and Leov had made plans with her parents, who teleported in to see where she had been, in which she told them that she'd been busy studying, and it wasn't a lie, she had been, more then ever, studying that is. She smiled as Nirrim walked through the door, and told her that if she wished to go somewhere she could, but her parents were to teleport her, nobody else and no travelling alone. Leov nodded and hugged him, smiling brightly as he left not long after to meet with his brother, or at least that's what Leov was told she thought otherwise. She waited for her parents to teleport in and take her to Goldshire, she felt like she was just a child again, but did not complain as she knew, she'd be out and about. Once in Goldshire she took a deep breath and felt a sudden rush of freedom. She met up with Sadine and they went for one of their usual chats, talking about boys and how they can be, dresses, work, all the usual stuff girls talk about. With a few drinks thrown in up in their newly found tree house made extra secure with a shield from Leov, time flew past and they ran out of drinks, eventually making the decision to head back to the inn. Leov stood and began to say her prayer mixed with a spell to bring down the shield.

As the shield dispersed and the glow from Leov's hand vanished, two masked men, jumped from the upper branches. "Sadine!" Leov screamed, and with this she heard Sadine scream in return, Leov fell to the ground with a sharp pain in her side as she was kicked behind the knees. As Sadine was dragged by the two masked men from the tree backwards, asking for Leov to get Shayanan, Leov's head fell forward, landing against the ground, the next thing to be heard was a gryphon's wing's beating hard as it landed beside her. The bird put it's head gently under her hand and forced her to stand. Squawking softly, Leov stood and carefully climbed onto Kesa, holding her side tightly as the blood covered her hand, lying against the bird, she took flight, flying as fast as she could whilst keeping her owner safe on the trip from Stone Cairn Lake to Goldshire, landing softly infront of Nirrim. Leov fell from her bird, holding her side still, she muttered something, as she looked over to Nirrim, suddenly surrounded by Knights Hollye's voice came as a bird landed close by, asking her what was wrong. Leov raised her voice slightly and called Sadine, the knights fell quiet. Helfdane suddenly asked what was wrong and where Sadine was, "Shayanan, I need Shayanan!" came Leov's voice, as she looked around. Hollye fussing over her, removing Leov's hand to look at the cut in her side, Helfdane's voice rang out, "Shayanan, get yourself over here, now!" Leov looked backwards, leaving Hollye to take care of her side, she looked up and Shayanan asked "What is it?" Leov immediately replying "Assassins, Stone Cairn Lake, they took Sadine, she told me to ask for you." Leov's voice wavered as she continued to loose blood, seeing Shayanan and Helfdane call for their mounts and fly away, she turned her attention back to the people around her. "We need get you lied down, Leov." Hollye's voice came to her, sounding slightly worried, Leov nodded, and Zemen leaned in to help her stand, " Get away from her -mage-." Nirrim was suddenly stood next to Leov, looking down at her, she smiled slightly, pushing herself up as she shook her head and headed towards the grass infront of the blacksmith, lying herself down, as she did Hollye ripped the side of Leov's dress to get to the wound. "I'm sorry Leov, but I need to get to the wound." Leov nodded and grimaced and Hollye saw to the wound, cleansing it first and then sealing it up, Leov pulled herself into a sitting position looking around and asking for Sadine, it had felt like ages they'd been gone, until finally, Helfdane landed infront of them, quickly informing them that she'd been stabbed several times in the stomach, and that she was at the house by the lake behind the inn.

Leov grimaced in pain, making herself stand, Kesa flew down and as soon as Leov climbed up she flew over to the house, landing right infront of the door. Leov slid off and walked into the house, sitting on the bed beside Sadine, shaking from the shock and the sight as a blood ball being held by a draenei priest fell to the floor. She leaned over, whispering softly to Sadine for her to come back to them, she squeezed her arm gently before looking up the Shayanan and asking if she was going to be okay. He nodded as the priest began to speak to him. Leov continued to stare at Sadine, as if mentally willing her to wake up from her unconscious state.

Sadine stirred, and in a very low voice she asked for Leov and Shayanan, who both nodded and leaned forward. "I'm here Sadine..." came the reply from both of them, both looking down at her as she cried and mentioned that they'd attacked her again, the knights now surrounding the bed as Hollye came in and began to try and heal Sadine. As she passed out from blood loss again, Shayanan left the room, being informed there was a elven girl hanging around spying, and was gone a while. Hollye continued to heal Sadine and cleanse her stomach, Leov watched helplessly, Zemen and Helfdane stood at the end of the bed, they watched as they began to talk amongst themselves quietly of what could of happened. Shayanan returned to the room as Sadine re-awoke and asked for everyone to leave so she could talk to him, Leov nodded and ordered them all out. Hollye stood up and left with the two men following her, Leov closed the door and was immediately bombarded with questions.

''What happened Leov? Did you see what they were wearing? Why did she want Shay?'' amongst other questions, so many questions she thought to herself as she nodded and answered them all as best she could, unsure of who was asking anymore, everything seemed to go past in a blur, soon she found herself downstairs, surrounded by The Dead Rose membersand unsure of how she actually got there, before they quickly left with multiple worgen to chase down an elven girl who they feared was a spy. Leov received information from Shayanan that Sadine would like to speak to her, she walked upstairs to find Zemen questioning Sadine. Leov frowned and told him to keep his questions for later and the girls deciding they couldn't stay where they were made Sadine stable and concluded that they would move to a secret location of Sadine's, and that Zemen would follow along, they flew to Stormwind, then taking the tram to Dun Morogh before heading on to the secret location, a house in the middle of no where, all the while Sadine on Zemen's carpet. Arguments were unfortunately unavoidable, Leov was stressed and angry with most Knights, especially those she called her friends, and Zemen, also known as Aron, was feeling left out and confused,

Eventually Shayanan turnt up, Leov confused as to how he found them, but figured that Sadine had told him either way. She continued to look after Sadine and make her comfortable, placing a intravenous into Sadine's arm with a blood pouch to help replace the blood she had lost. Her communicator sounded up suddenly, and it was Nirrim, asking to see her. She nodded and replied back, arranging to meet at the house, she hugged Sadine and said she'd be back soon as she left, warning the boys not to stress Sadine out too much, or there would be trouble, she giggled slightly at the thought as she left, closing the door behind her.

Back at Leov's house, Nirrim wrapped his arms around her and asked her what had happened, she told him and he just nodded, they sat and spoke for a while, Nirrim calming Leov down as the upset and nerves kicked in, "Red, I have to go..Leaf Business", Nirrim smiled down at her as he said it and kissed her forehead, Leov nodded and blushed, hugging him before stepping back and watching him leave, a sharp pain pulsed over Leov's head, putting her head in her hands she fell to her knees crying out in pain.

Kesa flew towards the secret location with Leov on her back, her wings pounding hard against the cold Dun Morogh winds, she landed back down infront of the house, and Leov knocked on the door, dismounting Kesa who flew back up, to wait for her owner to return. After waiting a while out in the cold, Aron finally opened the door and allowed her in. "Thank you, took you long enough though.", she said as she descended the stairs down into the living room, confronted by the smell of alcohol and a lump under the rug. Leov grinned as she looked at Sadine "No use in hiding the evidence my dear evil sister, you appear to have a bottle shaped object under the rug." Sadine blushed and looked up at Aron who just smiled and nodded. "Ah yes, that's mine, I was just placing it under there so I didn't lose it." Leov rolled her eyes, sitting herself by the fire she picked up the book and started to flick idly through it. "It's not nice to lie, troll boy, could end up getting you in trouble, especially when the evidence sits squarely infront of you." Sadine glanced at Leov, looking deeply confused as Aron began to speak Leov cut him off. "Besides, what makes you think you can keep her safe when you didn't even realize Ascy had been missing for two years, tortured, for consorting with you, for helping -you-, why do you think you can keep us safe when you couldn't even keep her safe all those years ago?" Aron just sat and looked angry and confused as Leov wrote a note and flicked it to Sadine, it landing in her lap. "Something is wrong, Sadine, help me..." Sadine looked up at the red headed girl infront of her as she took out her com and dropped it infront of her, standing to them "Why is it Sadine, she trusts nobody but you? Why does she question the Knights and yet remain so loyal, and why does she seem so confused about Nirrim when he just protects her and cares for her?" Sadine quickly ran forward and picked up the com, placing it in her ear she began to talk into it as Leov continued to argue with Aron about the past and the present, Sadine suddenly handing the note to Aron, he stood there with his jaw dropped. "I knew something was wrong, who are you?!", Leov grinned and headed for the stairs. "If she had any brains she'd be able to work it out, its not that hard, now, tell me, why hasn't Leov been killed off yet, what is stopping my well paid mercenaries and assassins, hmm?" She headed up the stairs, a knock at the door stopping her in her tracks, Sadine pushed past and opening it, she whispered to the newcomer, handing him a rope. "Whatever you do Nirrim, don't let her get near the door, it's not Leov, I don't know who it is, but that's not Leov talking, its a Leov-Creature" came Sadine's voice, Nirrim nodded "Who are you?!", Leov just smiled as her hands were surrounded by ice, her hands glowing in a warm light, seemingly mixed with fire as the ice melted away, "Well, well, if it isn't lover boy. You sir, have her really confused, let alone worried with that nightmare she had of you." Nirrim stood staring at Leov, as Sadine looked over to Aron shakeing her head, suddenly taking hold of Leov's hand and tying it up as she held onto the other end. "Oh, now I understand why you said what you did in Goldshire, you two are lovers." Aron's voice suddenly filled the hallway, Leov turned and laughed at him as she began to walk back down the stairs, she sat on a chair infront of the fire, her hand still tied, she stared down at the rope before turning to face Nirrim. "So, lover boy, you clearly turned down the contract, for obvious reasons, you have her terribly confused, her mind is racing with questions about all sorts of things, and she doesn't trust anyone truly except for her." Leov pointed towards Sadine.
"So, what's your interest, she's just a mere paladin, one lessto worry about, any ideas as to why she hasn't been dealt with yet?!" Nirrim shook his head. "Leave her, NOW!" Nirrim's voice rang out in the hollow room, Leov laughed, "Well, you should know who I am, if you put those stupid minds to work." and with that, Leov stood up on the chair, suddenly falling backwards over the arm of the chair unconscious, banging her head against the floor as she landed.

Nirrim rushed forward, picking up Leov and taking her to the bed, Sadine yelling for him to go get towels and water so she can deal with Leov's head as it started to bleed slowly. Nirrim shook his head, "Mage, water, towels, NOW!" he looked up to Aron, who moved frowning at nirrim as he went to go and get them. Sadine pushed Nirrim out of the way. as she handed the towel and pressed it against Leov's head, slowly, Leov came around. "What's going on?! How did I get here!? Sadine, Nirrim?!" she looked up at the two of them stood side by side as tears began to roll down her face, "Rest, Red, we can explain tomorrow." Nirrim leaned forward, hugging her, he kissed her forehead gently, Sadine smileing weakly grabbing onto the edge of the table as she wobbled as she nodded in leovs direction, falling backwards off the bed her eyes closed as she landed with a thud unconcious, Aron running forward, a look of worry on his face leaned down, picked her up and placed her on the bed, Leov's hand glowed light as she placed it over sadine, but nothing happened, looking up worriedly, Nirrim had already gotten bandages and potions, handing a potion to Leov, she shook her head " Oh no, you know the rules" he grinned, turning slightly so only she could see he pulled down the front part of his hood and sipped from the potion, handing it to her she downed it in one before he continued to see to Sadine, tearing her dress, he bandaged the bleeding side and cleaned it, opening her mouth slightly he poured a postion down, Sadine coming round slowly, Shayanans voice suddenly ringing out "Whats going on?" "Whos the guy in red and black attempting to be me" the girls just smiled as Aron explained what had just happened, the men looking from one another, they nodded, stepped forward giving the girls their hugs and all three turned to leave, leaving the two girls to rest.

The Attack.

“THE VILE THORN ARE HERE!” the yell came from outside, Leov's eyes widened, as she walked down the stairs from the upper landing in the Lions Pride Inn in Goldshire, she turned looking back to the closing portal, realizing there was no turning back she took a deep breath and headed down the stairs, hoping that some of her friends would be around.

Reaching the bottom of the stairs she sighed, being hit with a sudden uproar off noise she headed outside to the yell of thorns being around again, noticing nobody she knew was around she called for her charger, climbing up her thoughts washed over her and wouldn’t leave her be, Helfdane had told her to be careful of the thorns hadn’t he?, just the night previous to this, he'd told her he thought they could be after her, how he'd killed one hanging around Goldshire that day, Leov shook her head as she was pushed slightly, looking down she saw Sadine smiling up at her.

“Hello Good one, Everything ok?” Leov smiled as she slid from her horse nodding, “Everything’s fine Evil one, how are you?” she asked, “Everything’s fine, I just need to find the “boys” one in particular” Sadine smiled as she spoke, at that moment Shayanan landed from his drake not far behind her, a great gust of wind flowing over the two girls, they turned to face the source of its cause, as they did Leov began to spin slightly, she fell to her knees, “Leov?!” Sadine's voice sounded out.

A few minutes passed as Sadine stood staring at Leov unsure of what to do, finally able to take her hand to her head, Leov looked up, “What in the name of light was that? My heads throbbing” Sadine smiled down at her, “Could you move or talk?” she asked, Leov just shook her head, “Rogue and with that, your not being left alone, good one” came the reply from Sadine as she smiled reassuringly, Leov frowned, still cradling her head in her hand, Helfdane landing not far away as Leov walked over to the ledge in-front of the inn and sat down.

“Helfdane!” Sadine smiled as she walked over, whispering to him he looked over to Leov with a worried expression before the pair of them walked back to her “Leov, I have to go speak with Shay about something, I’ll be back soon, I promise.” Sadine smiled at her as Leov looked up, grimacing slightly from the bright light of the sun “Stay Safe Sadi” Leov smiled as she spoke, taking her hand away from her head as she stood and hugged Sadine she looked at Helfdane, “Hello Helf, how are you?” Helfdane smiled and nodded in reply, “I’m fine, yourself?” he smiled down at her as she shrugged slightly, “My head wont stop throbbing, other then that I'm ok, is there a reason your not leaving my side though?” she peered at him searchingly, “Sadine asked me to keep an eye on you” came his reply, Leov frowned slightly, “I don’t need babysitting Helfdane, I'm a big girl” At that moment Iselinn appeared next to the both of them.

“Iselinn!, How are you?” Leov smiled brightly, it had been ages since she'd seen her and they'd hardly gotten a moment to speak properly like they used to since the day at the lake, she smiled as she recalled the night and how Iselinn had informed her that she thought Helfdane liked Leov a lot, she blushed slightly as her train of thought was broken all of a sudden “Leov! Helfdane!” Iselinn was smiling from one to the other “How are you both?” Leov looked up “I’m fine, although I'm being babysat, again” she giggled as she gestured towards Helfdane, “Cant seem to loose him at the moment” Iselinn just smiled and nodded as Helfdane looked on “I think I’m going to head inside for a drink” and with that Iselinn was gone.

Leov stood, walking over to the fence outside of the blacksmith, she elegantly lifted herself up and sat upon it, taking her hand to her head again, “Dear light, why will this throbbing not stop”. Helfdane peered at her, “I don’t think its safe here” Leov looked at him a little confused, “...What are you on about?. I meant the pain in my head Helfdane, its throbbing...” Helfdane coughed suddenly, making Leov jump “Oh, right, ofcourse, Sorry.” Leov frowned, “Know something I don’t do you Helf?” he looked sideways at her, “No, I don't think so” Leov just nodded, cradling her head in her hand she looked around, noticing Ishsah across from her, she frowned “oh Great, Not only do we have horde hanging around, we have a Demon too”.

“Everything alright here Lahnmaiden?” Leov looked up, and nodded “Everything’s Fine, just horde hanging around, and with you Ravenshade?” she smiled as he joined them by the fence “Everything’s fine, although I have a -slight- feeling you lot don't like me” he peered at Helfdane as he gave his reply, “Full armour I see?” Leov just looked at him as he got no reply from Helfdane who was surveying the area “What lot are you talking about?” she asked, “The Knights an all those holy things” came his reply, she frowned slightly, “You do -know- the history of The Dead Rose and The Knights, don’t you?” she peered at him, “ Ofcourse I do” he answered, she just frowned and nodded, “Well, yell if you need something slashing, I’ll be around town somewhere” and with that he left.

A sudden thud sounded out from not to far away “Excuse the landing” came Langlams voice as he walked over to them, Helfdane turned and looked at Leov who was still cradling her head “ I do believe we will have regular visits from the horde at the moment” he said and she just frowned and nodded.

“Trouble eh?”came Langlams voice again, Leov smiled as she looked up, “Hello Lang” she said as Helfdane nodded in a greeting Langlam returning the nod “So hows this little place doing?” he asked “Just horde hanging around,suspected Thorns I believe” she smiled as she replied “Ah, ” he replied, as he looked around “Literally hanging around I see” he peered up to the mounted horde in the sky. “Indeed, and a demon to go with them” She gestured over to Ishsah standing opposite outside of the inn, frowning slightly as she took her hand to her head and scrunched her eyes closed “Iselinn's around somewhere if your looking for some more entertaining people to talk to” she grimaced slightly as she opened her eyes again, both men looking at her “ She just went inside the Inn” came Helfdane's voice “Ah, I must of missed her” Langlam peered at Leov as he spoke “Ugh, this Throbbing will not stop” Leov began to take her other hand to her head as she spoke “Headache?” Langlam asked, and she nodded slightly “Yes, courtesy of a rogue” Langlam laughed slightly “I take it you don’t need help with anything?” and Leov shook her head in reply “I'm being babysat already, you don’t have to stay if you'd rather head inside” she looked up smiling at Lang as she gestured towards Helfdane, pointing out he was her babysitter “Well, ill take a look around anyway” and with that Langlam turned and left, Leov smiled “Feel free to take Helfdane with you, wont you?” she shouted after him, Helfdane chuckling beside her.

A few moments passed before Leov finally slid from the fence, “It's too noisy here, I'm heading to the lake, feel free to stay Helf” she grinned, knowing he wouldn’t she headed towards the inn and down the side, looking over her shoulder noticing that he was following.

Reaching the edge of the water she sat herself down, taking in a deep breath as Helfdane sat beside her, he smiled “You know, were only trying to keep you safe” she turned to him slightly, nodding in reply “ I know, just feel like I'm being treated like a five year old at the moment” she smiled slightly as she looked out onto the water, suddenly she fell forward slightly, quickly putting her hands out infront of her she was standing but stunned, and surrounded by four horde attacking her, stabbing and hitting all over her body she quickly grew weak as she gave out a scream and fell to the floor unconscious. Helfdane yelled as he attacked the men, trying to keep them away from Leov and as they retreated he chased them “SADINE! ISELINN!” Helfdane's voice was raised as he knelt down beside Leov, “Leov?, Can you hear me?” He frowned slightly, checking her pulse and realizing it was low. Iselinn's voice was suddenly heard “Where are you?!” Helfdane let go of her wrist “LAKE, BRING HELP!” Iselinn, Langlam and other residents of Goldshire quickly surrounded the lake and Leov, trying to work out what had gone on “ARLI, YOU BASTERD!” Helfdane's voice suddenly erupted over the commotion, “If you hadn’t attacked them they wouldn’t be attacking you” came the voice from Arfen, Ishsah frowned, “We -are- at war, Human, or had you not noticed?” came the demons voice and Arfen just stared at her before they continued to argue, Robinas' voice could be heard in the background “Arli!” to be returned with “Uruk”.

“Helfdane, who did this, what happened?” Iselinn looked down at Leov worriedly as she bled, her dress already covered in blood as it only got worse, Helfdane placed his hands over her, trying to heal her but not being able too as he looked up to Iselinn. “Thorns, Four or five of them, I could barely react before she hit the floor, I tried Ise” Iselinn nodded “We need to get her out of here, Lang! Heal her, make her so we can move” Langlam stared down at Leov and nodded “I'll do my best, just a bit wary of reoccurring horde” Just then Sadine and Shayanan landed behind Helfdane, Sadine ran forward “Leov! Can you hear me?!” she looked down worriedly at her taking Leov's hand into hers and squeezing it gently she turned at looked at Shay who nodded “Lang, please tell me she’s going to be ok?! I will catch up with you” Langlam who had been healing Leov looked up at Sadine and smiled slightly, “I'll do my best Sadine, she should be fine to move now” and he lifted Leov up into his arms her pulse weak and her dress drenched as Iselinn summoned a portal. Robinas grinned at Shayanan who looked from her and then over the crowd “Where is he?” he asked as Robinas's voice went up “Arli!” to be replied with “Uruk”.

“Ise?” Iselinn turned to face Sadine “Where are you taking her?” Iselinn nodded and smiled slightly “To her house, Stay safe Sadine” Sadine nodded mounted up with Shay and flew off in search of Leov's attackers and with that Iselinn stepped through the portal followed by the others to arrive in Ironforge.

“Ise, Take her on your carpet will you?” Langlam stated more then asked as he placed her gently down on the carpet before climbing onto his griffon, Iselinn nodded in reply as she set off to Leov's house, once there, Ise stepped from the carpet leaving it hovering gently outside close to the door as she rummaged in her pockets, pulling out a key adorned with a green saronite butterfly, carefully crafted for her when Leov had given it to her so many months ago she unlocked the door, “Someone carry her in and get her on the bed, quickly” Iselinn looked from the two men, hardly able to look at Leov as she grew worse and more pale as time went past.

Helfdane stepped forward and carefully picked her up, taking her gently through the door and sliding her onto the bed, Lang following as he looked down at Leov his hand began to glow as he tore the upper half of her dress away the door banged loudly and Iselinn's eyes widened “Lock it! Now!” she turned to find Helfdane answering the door instead “Where is Miss Lahnmaiden?” came the voice of Leov's Guardian Amarsen Arnesh “Who is it?” Iselinn asked, and Helfdane just looked at the Elf “Amarsen?” he asked as the elf nodded “Sir Einhart” Helfdane nodded slightly “It's one of Leov's guardians” he turned to Iselinn as he replied to her “Well, Let him in if you trust him, just lock the door afterwards” Iselinn answered “Where is she?” came the elf’s voice “She’s inside, and in quite a bad way, come in” and with that Helfdane ushered Amarsen in who's eyes darted straight to the bed as he overlooked her, her dress torn to shreds and cuts, bruising and stabbing covering her body as she continued to bleed quite heavily from all over her body.

“Why would the thorns attack her?!” Iselinn was now looking at Leov, unable to remove her gaze, Helfdane looked from Leov to Iselinn and Amarsen “She's been under threat from a Highlord for a while, Her dreams have been invaded, she’s been possessed and now he has no use for her and so has payed five thousand gold pieces to three different mercenary company’s, unfortunately that is all we know” Helfdane answered to be returned with a horrified look upon Iselinn's face “She never said, silly girl, clearly he's got deep pockets though, “Highlord” such a pompous title” she returned her gaze to Leov.

“Bloody Hell, they've filled her with holes over here” Langlams voice was wavering as he continued to tear her dress away to only reveal more stab wounds bruises or cuts, working as fast as he could he pressed his hand against them as his hand glowed a bright golden colour and it slowly healed her one by one “One of you get over here and hold this one, it wont close” He looked round to the other three, Helfdane walked forward and held the deepest cut on her back, “Just here?” Helfdane asked as he placed his hand upon it, Langlam nodded, “Does Hollye know about this?” Iselinn looked down at Leov as she asked, looking worried as she sniffled slightly, trying to hide the tears Helfdane shook his head “Don't think so no” Iselinn shook her head in return, “Silly, Silly Girl” Amarsen looked over the people around the bed before sighing unhappily “I shall be on the balcony should any of you need me” and with that he left and headed upstairs. Langlam breathed deeply, looking completely worn out “Ok, you can move it now” and with that Helfdane moved his hand to have it replaced with Langlams as it glowed brightly, slowly closing it from the outside in, eventually and a loud banging came from upstairs, “What in Azeroth is that?” Iselinn looked upwards as she left to go and see what it was.

“I'm not sure how much more of this I can take, I think we may have to bandage the rest, I’m knackered and she's still full of smaller cuts and wounds” He tore more of her dress away as he spoke to reveal a few smaller ones, the sheets on Leov's bed now covered in blood also, he sighed slightly, “I'm sorry, these will have to be bandaged” He spoke as he tried to heal them, placing his hand over them, his hand glowing dimly before it diminished, “Do we have any bandages in this place?” Helfdane nodded, “Her bag on the table, she always has medical supply’s of all kinds” he spoke as he took a book out of her bag, it floating above her head he read from it as his hands began to glow and flow over her wounds, closing up a lot of them, before the book slammed shut, he leant forward and checked her pulse as Langlam began to bandage some of the remaining ones, Helfdane sighed heavily as a loud bang came to the door.

Nirrim stood outside, both his arms broken and in a sling, he began to kick the door “Let me in” he yelled, Iselinn stood staring at the door her eyes widening in shock with each kick as Langlam tended to Leov behind her suddenly Amarsen's voice rang out and a thud was heard as he jumped from the balcony, landing on the floor outside “Who are you? And what is your interest in Miss Lahnmaiden?” Nirrim turned, looking at the Nightelf, standing in a golden alliance army armour he shrugged and continued to kick the door calling for Leov, Amarsen raised his eyebrow, “Sir, I suggest you stop that before I have to take action, Miss Lahnmaiden is unconscious, she will not be able to answer, now, who are you?” Nirrim smiled back at the nightelf, turning “I'm an assassin ofcourse” came his reply, Iselinn gasped, her head pressed against the door, listening to the two men outside, “He's not getting in here, send him away!” she yelled through the door, Nirrim turned and began to kick the door a little harder, “It's Nirrim, let me in, Leov knows me, I’ve been protecting her, LET ME IN!” Amarsen walked forward, throwing his shield at him, “Sir, I suggest you leave, you heard the lady inside” Nirrim sighed, moving swiftly to the side to dodge the shield “Ask them, Names Nirrim!” he answered staring at the Nightelf who replied with sighing as he knocked on the door “Anyone know a Nirrim?” Nirrim scoffed, Iselinn turned, her eyes wide “Light, what has she gotten involved in, No Amarsen, we know nobody of that name here, he’s not coming in!!” Iselinn stared at Leov, frowning slightly as she sighed walking back over to Leov, she squeezed her hand gently.

A few moments later a commotion was heard outside, followed by another knock, “Anyone know a Sardred Ravenshade?” Iselinn sighed, sounding more annoyed then anything “NO! He -is- not coming in, I don’t care what news he has!” she yelled through the door angrily, Nirrim suddenly appearing sitting on the Head board of Leov's bed, “Oh Hell NO!” Iselinn stared at the Leaf commander “Get out -NOW-! Your not welcome here!” Nirrim looked up briefly from Leov, shrugging lightly “How's she doing? Who attacked her Goldy?” Helfdane frowned, looking up to Nirrim as he tied a leather strap around Leov's upper arm, ready for the intravenous “Thorns, four to five of them” Nirrim nodded as he stared at Iselinn who had been yelling at him since his appearance,”Listen, you can be pissed off, grumpy...and everything you want to be, at me, but I will not let your hate for me push me away from Leov” Iselinn stared at him as she spoke, her anger growing as she gritted her teeth, “Get out, now, before I call the guards” Nirrim scoffed slightly as he stood, jumping from the end of the bed onto the stairs, “Well, ill be off, looks like I'm not wanted here, Tell Leov ill be back to speak to her later, wont you?” Nirrim grinned, slipping into the shadows he left.

Another knock on the door as someone walked down the stairs “Ishsah winterspear?” Iselinn's eyes widened, “Not here, Not now, No, tell her to -leave-!” Iselinn sighed, looking up she noticed Sardred standing at the bottom of the stairs “Oh for Lights sake, What do you want, didn’t I say no?, Leave, she’s ill, unconscious, let them work!” she stared at the Death Knight who merely looked from Leov to Iselinn, “So I see, anyway, I bring news, I suggest you listen, Arli and his little helpers got away, which means, there’s probably more on the way and were screwed” he looked back down at Leov, laying on the bed surrounded and covered in her own blood, Iselinn glared at him “Right, you gave your news, now, get out Sardred, your not welcome either, go!” Sardred looked up at Iselinn as she spoke he nodded “Fine, have fun.” he turned, heading back up the stairs he left.

Helfdane had placed the intravenous into Leov's arm as she began to stir ever so slightly, she looked up at Iselinn sat beside her “Ugh, That doesn’t feel good” Iselinn's gaze darted down to Leov “Leov?” she asked to have it answered with a slight faint smile “Ise? Is that you? Why is everything so blurry, what’s going on, where am I?” Leov's voice was softer then usual, let alone croaky as she spoke, Iselinn smiled down at her “You were attacked Leov, seems your in some trouble, your fine now, Lang and Helf have seen to that, Your blurred vision will pass, I'm sure of it, Rest Leov” Iselinn moved the hair out of Leov's face as she spoke to her.

A loud thud erupted from the door and interrupted the two girls “Duskshade, Anyone?” Iselinn sighed “Let me in, I'm her Guardian, or one of them, just ask her, I'm not leaving till Leov HERSELF tells me she's ok, if you do not let me in I will pick the locks and I will treat you all as hostile within her home!” the yell came from the door, Leov's eyes widened she looked in Iselinn's direction “It's true Iselinn, he’s been keeping me safe, Let him in, please” Iselinn shook her head as Leov spoke, “No Leov, it's him or me, if he comes in I leave, they almost killed me” she looked down at Leov, who had rolled onto her back grimacing, she wrapped her arms over her stomach, coughing up blood, “Ise?, it hurts....” Leov fell back onto the bed, mid-sentence, passed out, her pulse slowing down again “Duskshade, Leave, She is not in the right mind to see you” Iselinn stared at Leov as she spoke shaking her head “That's it, I'm going for help, Miss White should be at the Cathedral, I will be back! Amarsen, Helfdane, Only Knight's are to enter!” Iselinn jumped from the bed, running to the middle of the room she spoke as she summoned a portal and stepped through it, the noise of stormwind filling the room, soon followed by the small crack as it closed.

The sound of a griffon landing outside as it chirped proudly its owner dismounting from it filled the outside, “Let me in, it's Sadine” a soft knock came to the door, “Sadine? Don't think we know a Sadine here” Helfdane grinned at the closed door as he got up from the bed to answer it “Don't mess with me, let me see Leov” Sadine sounded upset and anxious as she spoke, Helfdane quickly opened the door “Sorry, had to be done in some way” Helfdane smiled at her, stepping to the side to let her in “It's fine” Sadine stepped in, her eyes immediately resting on Leov “How is she?” she asked as she walked over to the bed “Well, we've done what we can, but she was coughing up blood, Ise has gone for a priestess” Helfdane smiled reassuringly at her as she looked back at him before climbing onto the bed carefully squeezing Leov's hand gently “Leov, you have to get better” Sadine leant down and whispered to her.

Sadine sighed as she finished whispering to no response from Leov, getting up off the bed she walked over to the other end of the room to be joined by Helfdane and Amarsen, where they spoke in whispers and lowered tones of how it all came to be and any new information that had been found, “I doubt the thorns, although a grudge against the Knights would attack as such against Leov, cowards they may be, but I dare say they were payed highly to attack her, meaning I suspect the Highlord work” Sadine spoke as she stared at Leov, the other two nodding in agreement as a soft knock came to the door.

“Aminda White, to see a Miss Lahnmaiden” Miss white announced herself before asked, Helfdane answered, letting out a releaved sigh he let her in and gestured over towards Leov who was still laying unconscious, she scanned over Leov's body, taking in all the cuts and bruises, she leant down and breathed in through her nose as the other three watched on, Aminda wrinkled her nose, “Was there poison on the weapons? And who healed her?” She frowned as she continued to look down at her, speaking authoritatively, Sadine looked up “Well, they were rogues so I assume so Miss White, Yes.” Sadine nodded in reply as Aminda's hand began to glow a clear white colour and she pressed it against each wound, a green puff of smoke leaving Leov slowly Aminda sighed “Its probably a good thing she’s unconscious as I do this, else it would be painful, now, who healed her, was it you Sir Einhart?” Helfdane quickly shock his head, “No, It was Langlam, He did the most I healed some smaller ones” Helfdane looked towards Amarsen who nodded in reply.

“Very well, I shall speak to him later” She spoke as she leant over, taking Leov's wrist she checked her pulse which was still low, although rising slightly “Now, Miss Sandoy, who I left at the Cathedral before you all ask, she’s known for over reacting in these situations, unable to keep calm, said she clutched her stomach and complained of pain”, she turned, looking at the three of them “I need her rolling onto her back, could two of you gently do that please” Sadine nodded. moveing around the opposite side of the bed, as Amarsen and Helfdane moved to brace her back for the turn, slowly rolling her onto her back Aminda stepped forward again, removing the last piece of cloth covering her stomach, she stared down at a circular bruise that was purple and red in colour before looking up at Sadine “Was this here before?” Sadine shook her head as she looked over to Helfdane and Amarsen who confirmed it had not been there when the healing begun with a nod from each.

“What is it, can you heal it?” Sadine's voice shook with worry as she asked as she stared down at Leov's stomach, “I fear its internal bleeding, and it can be healed but it will take a lot of me energy”
Aminda smiled as she pressed down hard on Leov's stomach, a golden light erupting from her hand, as the others looked on and watched, time flying past slowly as it seemed to take forever for the bruising on Leov's stomach to disappear Aminda checking occasionally as she sighed “There, that should be done, ill make her up some potions and medicines for her to take, make sure she takes them they will help with her recovery, and one especially will help should her temperature rise to high above what it should be” Aminda spoke, sounding quite tired now she walked over to the table at the other end of the room as she began to pull mixing implements from her bag and began to mix multiple herbs into a pestle, Sadine leant forward and checked Leov's pulse, smiling up to the other two, indicating it was beginning to rise once again.

“Miss White?” Sadine was walking over to join Aminda at the table who merely nodded in reply and smiled at her “Do you happen to know if Iselinn has gone to find the officers, I really need to speak with them” Sadine smiled slightly, her voice sounding a little less worried now as Aminda nodded in return “I believe that’s where she was heading when I informed her she could not accompany me back here” Aminda smiled as she began to pour the different concoctions into vials and placed them on the table, turning to look as a authoritative knock came to the door.

“Who is it?” Helfdane's voice suddenly rang out, “Its Hollye, Calahan and Iselinn, Let us in will you” Hollye's voice sounded authoritative and worried, as the door was unlocked Helfdane began to move to one side and Leov began to stir in her bed slowly, Sadine ran over to her quickly as the others were finally able to get through the door.

“Leov?” Sadine smiled down at her as she nodded in greeting to the newcomers “Sadine, Are you ok, is everyone ok?” Leov looked up at Sadine, tears quickly filling her eyes and rolling down her face, Sadine nodded and moved some hair from Leov's face “Were all fine Leov, as will you be” she spoke softly, almost in a whisper before gently squeezing Leov's hand reassuringly and moving towards Hollye “Hollye, id like to speak with everyone of the officers present and members if possible please” she smiled at Hollye as she spoke who nodded in reply “Ofcourse Sadine, Let us go upstairs to talk, shall we?” Iselinn looked between them all, shook her head slightly “I'll stay with Leov, get her into some new clothes and some water” Hollye smiled at Iselinn “Good idea, make sure she is ok, ill need to speak with her about all of this after the debriefing” Hollye spoke softly as she motioned towards Leov.

Iselinn smiled slightly as she moved over to the bed, holding out a new dress and slowly helping Leov sit up as she tore the rest of the dress from her and placed the new dress carefully over her head “Leov, why didn’t you tell me? Why didn’t you tell any of us?” Iselinn suddenly asked as Leov looked up and shook her head “I couldn’t, none of you were around, you all seemed to off disappeared, and the people you all hate so much were the only ones around and noticed I was having troubles, this all started with that night I collapsed and you couldn’t wake me up...” Iselinn stopped her mid-sentence as she looked down at her slightly hurt and angry “What about letters Leov, pen and paper, you know I would have been there for you straight away” Leov shook her head again as Iselinn spoke “Again, I couldn’t, someone is intercepting my mail, whether its unroute or they take it from the mail box, its -always- open when it arrives as if its been read, I didn’t want to take the risk, i'm sorry Iselinn” Leov looked up at Ise, her eyes filling with tears again as one slowly rolled down her cheek she could hear a lot of confusion and conversation coming from upstairs, a lot of questions and barely any answers.

Another knock came to the door as Leov went off into thinking, Iselinn went to answer it and a female Death Knight walked in “Mita?” Iselinn asked, and the female nodded “Their upstairs, you should join them” the death knight headed for the stairs, staring door at Leov she grinned slightly before she carried on up the stairs, as silence fell, Leov couldn’t help but think she was welcomed to well and she smiled slightly.

“Iselinn?” Hollye's voice came from the small landing behind the two girls who had been sitting and talking, although at some points it had felt like lecturing and half arguing to Leov, she turned slightly, nodding in reply to Hollye “Commander” Leov smiled slightly before turning back around and looked at Iselinn “I shall leave you two to talk, ill go see what the others are saying” Iselinn spoke softly, although with a slight tone of anger and worry she stood from the bed and walked upstairs to the others “Leov, id like to talk to you about today’s events, all of us seem to have some questions and perhaps you can put those to rest” Hollye spoke softly as she smiled at Leov, walking down the stairs and round to the front of her she elegantly sat herself down on the bottom of the bed Leov nodded and smiled in return “Ofcourse Commander” Hollye shook her head slightly “Leov, I told you to call me Hol- Oh, nevermind, on with the questions” Hollye sighed as she looked at Leov who merely nodded as she looked down to her hands, looking tired and in grave need of rest, but to stubborn to do either she sat waiting for the questioning to start only looking up briefly to notice most of the group descending down the stairs silently, her gaze falling back to her lap as she sighed to herself.

The Questioning.

The Knights silently continued to file down the stairs and stand in a mass around the bed and up against the wall as they looked from the commander to Leov who had forced herself into a sitting position on the bed, grimacing at she did so, Hollye smiled and nodded as she looked from the Knights to Leov.

“Leov, we need to know what's going on, why you didn't tell us and where The Last Leaf commander fits into all of this please?” Hollye spoke softly although it commanded a response to Leov she frowned, nodding slightly as she sighed she continued to look down to her hands.

“There's not a lot to tell commander, The Last Leaf commander has kept me safe whilst the Knights were busy, protected me when I needed it and even kept me house bound until recently, where my parents began to portal me from place to place for my own safety, the reason I didn't contact the Knights was because I couldn't send out word by mail or bird through fear of it being intercepted, as some of my mail has been received at the other end open and crumpled as it has when I have received a reply, someone Commander, is reading my incoming and outgoing mail, and as there have been no Knights around recently, I dealt with it alone as much as I could...” Leov frowned as she spoke, breaking of mid-sentence and looking up and around the room, unable to shake the thought of wondering where all her “friends” had been over the past couple of months and yet they were about to sit and criticise her for the way she's gone about it, she looked back down to her lap, unable to shake the negative thoughts, after all, they were here now, weren't they?.

Hollye frowned as she looked at Leov, deep in thought before she spoke softly once more.
“Leov, why does he hang around you, surely you know that?” Iselinn scoffed as the commander asked her and Leov shook her head, knowing all to well why Nirrim hung around but refusing to believe it was true.

“Hollye, I think he's in love with her, and she claims not to know, but all woman know when somebody loves them, he wouldn't be sticking around for any other reason” Iselinn looked at Leov as she spoke, frowning slightly as the commander looked at her, nodding she looked back at Leov.

“Is this true Leov, is he in love you with?” Leov shook her head again blushing brightly. “Commander, I do not know, we became...acquaintances the day he saved my life from the woods, after speaking with him the first night after he attacked Iselinn to find out what was going on he found me unconscious on the forest floor and took me back to the inn in Goldshire...”

Hollye frowned as Leov spoke, shaking her head “Leov, why would he save your life if he wasn't in love with you? I understand that you wish to be subtle about such things, but he attacked your fellow Knights and its something we need an answer to, as to why he spends so much time around you” Leov nodded slowly.

“I know that commander, but to some extent he and his order were not the only ones at fault, after extensive investigation Helfdane was at fault also, and -Both- party’s of people are as much to blame as the other for their stupidity and assumptions as to whether he loves me, I do not know....”. Leov looked at Sadine as she continued to blush, as if waiting for her to say something, Sadine smiled reassuringly and nodded.

“Hollye, is that the most important information to gain from her, as to whether their commander loves her or not?” Sadine spoke softly and with a air of concern she looked at Hollye.

The Knights around the room began to whisper in a group, no doubt wondering what Leov was thinking and how foolish she'd been of late, and to some extent Leov would agree with them, she looked up slightly and sighed.

“Leov, They attacked Iselinn and Helfdane in Iselinn's own home, left her for dead and locked her in, and for that I am more then willing to send a pack of hounds after them” Hollye sounded slightly angry as she spoke and looked at Leov with a concerned look on her face.

“Commander, Helfdane is at fault also, both are at fault, He worked with the Vile Thorn, thinking it would be wise to jump to a assumption, and although he backed down later -Everyone- knows once you make a deal with a Thorn there is no going back, you do what you agree to do or there will be consequences, and there were consequences, Arli then wrote to The Last Leaf and informed them that Helfdane wished to have them killed off slowly, one by one, in turn once receiving the letter they also jumped to assumptions, and instead of going to Helfdane to speak with him, they waited for a long while, and because Helfdane is always with a female they attacked at a drunken Iselinn's house and took him hostage, and stupidly they attacked Iselinn, The Last Leaf were in the wrong, I agree with all of you, but so was Helfdane for jumping to assumptions in the first place.” Leov frowned, clenching her fists slightly, still unforgiving that they had actually attacked Iselinn and she doubted that she would ever forgive him, no matter what happened.

Hollye looked at Leov and nodded, smiling softly she spoke. “Leov, I wish to speak with him as soon as possible, it is time we got this settled and put aside out of the way, and they will explain or remain an enemy of the Knights forever more.” Leov nodded looking at Calahan as she spoke.

“Commander, he said he spoke with Calahan about the situation, apologized” Calahan looked at her before he spoke softly although sounding a little agitated “I spoke with him, I warned him, told him touch a Knight again and their dead men, but he did not apologize” Leov sighed, as Iselinn stood beside Calahan smiling proudly as she heard him speak about the Knights making them dead men, nodding slightly Leov looked back at Hollye.

“I will pass on your message commander” She spoke softly as she looked back down to her hands, Hollye nodded slowly, frowning all the while although seeming understanding she clearly wasn't willing to hear any more on it at the moment, Leov raised her hand to her head and grimaced, frowning slightly she let out a quiet groan of pain, Sadine ran forward and took hold of her hand as tears began to roll down Leov's face, Hollye spoke softly although with authority “Leov, understand that I will not have The Last Leaf, a order that has attacked the Knights run around you freely until they have been to speak with myself or the officers” She looked up at Leov, suddenly seeming concerned as Sadine held her hand.

“Leov, what is it, are you ok?” Sadine spoke softly although filled with worry, Leov glared at her, seeming quite angry as her hand's glowed softly and she began to mumble a bright flash surrounded the house and the Knights suddenly jumped out of their settled and relaxed stances to being on guard, looking around as the light dissipated and the light that had filled the room left as quickly as it had arrived Sadine frowned.

Hollye looked at Leov, with a look of sudden concern “Leov?”Hollye spoke as Langlam and the Knights rubbed their eyes, frowning as the Herald descended the stares, looking over the Knights with a look of contempt.

“What's with the sudden burst of hoodoo magic?” Langlam began to speak, clearly unimpressed with the sudden interference of light energy filling the house, Leov looked up at him and sighed, holding her head as the tears continued to roll down her face.

“It's not shadow hoodoo magic Lang, its a spell of the light mixed with a prayer, to keep me safe, that my father taught me, it shields the house, Iselinn's seen it, I used it to keep her safe...” Leov suddenly began to sound more and more agitated as she spoke she looked to Sadine, frowning slightly she shook her head as Sadine looked down at her.

“Leov, you -are- feeling like yourself, aren’t you?” Sadine spoke with a lot of concern in her tone of voice, Leov nodded slightly, suddenly taking her other hand to her head, grimacing in severe pain she let out a slight scream “Ok, now that really does hurt...”

“Hollye, get of the bed, something is extremely wrong.” Sadine looked briefly at the pregnant commander, who stood up, placing a hand softly on her stomach as she stood, she joined the rest of the Knights.

“Leov, are you ok?” Sadine turned back to Leov, smiling softly although the concern showed, Leov nodded “Ofco-” Leov pulled her hand out of Sadine's grip, standing up she turned to face the Knights, grinning slightly as her hand began to glow softly Leov glared down at Sadine.

“Leov?” Sadine looked up at the upstanding Leov now. “What?” Leov's voice was filled with Anger and pain, Sadine frowned slightly “Are you angry with me?” Hollye coughed slightly as she stood with the Knights suddenly raising her voice above the uproar of the Knights talking.

“Leov, is everything ok?, you seem to be acting as though your in a lot of pain...” Hollye's voice although raised was filled with deep concern for her Knight, Leov grinned in reply, “I was stabbed, wasn't I...? Ofcourse i'm in pain, who wouldn't be...” Leov looked over the Knights.

“What are you all looking at?” The Knights raising an eyebrow and looked at her all the more before Hollye replied “ Were looking at you Leov.” Leov rolled her eyes, as Langlam spoke about it being concern, Hollye and Iselinn spoke amongst themselves about a potion, shaking her head slightly before looking back down at Sadine.

“Ah, Sadine, Her best friend, her “sister” and yet, you sell her up the river to the Knights at the first opportunity, such a loving friend, aren't you?... Stupid woman” Leov spoke, although her voice seeming a little different as she glared at Sadine.

“Sadine, What is going on...?” Hollye stared at Leov as she spoke who was now edging backwards from the bed.

“Commander, I believe he's taken a hold of her again...” Sadine looked back at her briefly, before turning back to face Leov, Leov looked down at her, frowning as she spoke “What did you tell them about the possessions for? Hmm?” Sadine didn't reply, she just stared up into Leov's eyes, the tell tale signs of a struggle inside her head going on, Sadine began to glare, her anger and concern beginning to show as Hollye walked forward holding out her hand.

“Leov, take my hand please..” Leov looked down, laughing slightly she shook her head as Sadine spoke softly, almost whispering to the commander “I'm not sure that’s a good idea” Sadine kept her eyes on her and Leov began to speak again “I'd rather not, what right do you all think you have to just swan in here and act as though you care after so long, she tells you things and you decide to run off and tell them all, what kind of friend are you?” Leov looked back down at Sadine, who frowned, seemingly angry as she looked up.

“Confirmation enough, so we meet again do we?” Sadine's anger had finally reached it's peak she glared up at Leov who did no more then grin down at her.

“Hello, Idiotic one, how are you today?” Leov's voice was slightly more gruff then usually as the Knights spoke amongst themselves several of them heading for the doors and windows and locking any that were open Iselinn gasped as she heard Leov speak with Sadine yelling as she spoke “Leov!! You watch your mouth!!” the rest of the Knights turned to watch carefully as Leov and Sadine spoke, Leov looked over to Iselinn, grinning slightly.

“Oh, Iselinn, how Nice, your never around since Calahan fixed your house and now, you turn up to lecture her... Lovely” Iselinn stood mouth gaping slightly as she looked up at Leov before she shook her head and spoke, her voice sounding petrified “Wh-What?” Leov nodded, keeping her eyes on Iselinn “You heard me, Your never around and yet you all think you can just swan in here and lecture her, It's interesting, I can hear her thoughts, there quite amusing actually...”

Sadine pulled on Leov slightly, who looked down at her as Sadine spoke, “You stay away from her thoughts, leave them alone, get out of her head, its not your place to be...” Leov laughed as Sadine spoke, shaking her head she pulled out of Sadine's grip again and walked back, slipping off the edge of the bed as she kept her eyes on the Knights, Sadine walked up the stairs, grabbing a vase from the top as Leov's hand began to glow. “Tell me Sadine, what are you going to do this time, the rope certainly didn't work, did it?” Sadine looked at Leov, shaking her head “No, it didn't, so enlighten me, what -did- make you leave last time?” Leov smiled slightly as she looked at Sadine.

“Boredom mostly...” Langlam looked at her, raising a eyebrow as she spoke he cut across her “And now, you have a whole crowd to keep you entertained, Lucky you” She grinned as he spoke, “Well it was that and lover-boy yelling all over the place...He's got a temper, gets angry when people mess with her it seems, she should keep an eye out for that, could turn nasty...” She looked at Hollye who seemed to have a book open with Helfdane, whispering amongst themselves as the other Knights surrounded Leov as much as possible before Hollye motioned for Calahan to join them.

Hollye nodded as Calahan placed poison onto his blades she turned to Leov and spoke softly more so to the other Knights “This is what all those sort of people say, however, there are ways and means to make them leave a place their not wanted in, I have now heard enough and talking to this invader will not help matters..”, As Hollye finished talking Sadine dropped the vase down, looking upwards slightly Leov brought up a clear shield around her with a slight golden glow, the vase breaking upon contact it smashed, dropping around Leov as her hand began to glow with holy light, although a slightly orange tint began to mix in, Leov grinned as she stared at Hollye “Come near me again, and I will take actions against you, “Commander”” Leov nodded slightly, as Langlam frowned at her, Hollye raised her hand and waved it slightly, Calahan nodded and lunged forward, aiming the dagger at Leov's neck who laughed throwing the holy light with a hint of fire mixed in it at Calahan, a shield immediately being placed around him, she stood and grinned slightly, blood falling down her shoulder, her eyes rolling back she fell to the floor with a slight thud, falling between the wall and the bed.

Calahan sheathed his daggers, and the order was given to Iselinn to bring up a portal to Darnassus, he leant down and picked her up effortlessly into his arms, carefully carrying her through the portal as it cracked and the sound of Darnassus filled the house, arriving in Darnassus he carefully placed her on the ground near the moon-well to be greeted by a priestess who seemed a little hyper and all to happy to help the Knights.

Sadine emerged from the portal, soon followed by the other nights, she ran over to Leov and took a hold of her hand, whispering to her softly as Leov began to come around, Hollye stood speaking with Helfdane again about a exorcism, Leov pushed herself up into a sitting position, tears once again rolling down her face from pain but also worry as Sadine told her what had happened, she stared down to the ground nodding every so often and apologizing the priestess they'd found when they ported into the temple was now speaking with Calahan, all to energetic and hyper still if not perhaps a little young for a Nightelf.

“Hey Lass, do you think you can help the one out on the floor, she’s having a little trouble with possessions and was attacked today by the thorns”. Calahan spoke as he looked at the nightelf who nodded energetically and ran over to Leov, placing her hands on Leov's head a golden glow surrounded her and washed over her body as Leov pulled away staring at the elf as she whispered.

“I have no idea what i'm doing, I hope that helped, it looked right, didn’t it?!” Leov frowned as the nightelf spoke, moving backwards away from her slightly the nightelf returned to Calahan and shrugged slightly, she spoke softly to herself as a purple hue surrounded her and covered her in shadows and dark magic, levitating from the ground, Leov turned to watch her before her eyes widened and she forced herself to her feet, walking backwards she wobbled unsteadily speaking softly and growing steadily louder she repeated the same thing over and over before falling to the floor away from the priestess, who seemed to be staying put with Calahan.

“Keep her away from me, I swear on the light if she comes near me...” the nightelf frowned as Leov walked away from her, watching her closely.

“What’s wrong with her?” Calahan scoffed slightly as she replied “She's having issues with shadow priests and I cant say I blame her lass, your making me feel a little uneasy can you come down from there and stop that colouring” the nightelf frowned but complied and jumped down, removing the hue Leov watched her closely as Hollye looked over to her, walking to Leov slowly she smiled reassuringly.

“Leov, please understand, nobody will make you do anything you do not want to do, ok?” Hollye spoke softly to Leov, who's eye's had not left the priestess since she had began travelling backwards, grimacing all the while as she did, Leov nodded in reply, looking at Sadine as a tear rolled down her face.

“Leov, this monster, it has to come out of you, your not who you truly are when It takes over you in the way it does, your voice deepens, and you glare at people, you loose all the pieces of yourself that your friends know so well, do you must accept our help if things are to get better...” Hollye leaned forward, offering her hand to Leov who took it warily, looking from Sadine to the shadow priest she took her hand to her right ear and began to speak softly into a comms device.

“Hello? You have to come to the temple, they wish to speak with you, decide what to do next, they want to know why you hang around me and wh-” Hollye looked at Leov as she spoke in a small whisper, frowning she spoke softly.

“Leov, who are you speaking with?” Leov looked up to her, smiling slightly, a look of worry in her eyes.

“Gibbzy, Commander, He's worried, I let him know where we could be found” with a click Leov turned of the communication device as she heard Nirrim's reply, frowning to herself and tearing herself up inside for the lie she had just told she turned her vision to the floor where it remained as she listened to the people talk amongst themselves before a sudden smell of Ironforge filled the room and a rogue in a dark red and black outfit appeared from the portal, the figure quickly slipping into the shadow's.
“What was that?” Calahan growled as he peered off into the shadow's, Iselinn gripped his arm and frowned. “Not here, not now” she spoke softly although with a tone of fear and anger in her voice she glared from behind Calahan as ideas of who the suspect could be.

“Rose” Someone snapped, “Ishsah” said the next, Leov sighed, pushed herself up, wobbling slowly and looked at them in turn, shaking her head.

“Last Leaf Commander” Her voice was weak, soft with a hint of giving up, she frowned as she looked at them all, Hollye turned on her heels and stared at Leov.

“Leov, that communication device, I would assume it does not connect to Gibbzy then?” Leov nodded, speaking as she looked up at Hollye, hurt showing in her eyes for the lie she had told.

“I'm sorry commander, I should have been truthful, that I know, but you said you wished to speak with him, he's kept me safe and your a busy woman, so I asked him to come, to deal with this situation, it has gone on to long, I am sorry for deceiving you” Leov smiled softly as a tear rolled down her face, the weakness from the attack taking its took, Sadine wrapped a arm around her in support as the Last Leaf Commander appeared behind them, his arms in a sling and bandages as he walked around them and to the side, standing infront of the commander.

“Very well, so be it” Hollye sighed shaking her head in disappointment at Leov who had returned her gaze to the floor of the temple.

Hollye walked up to the The Last Leaf Commander, and stared at him, he did nothing but stand there as she began to speak she was soon joined either side by Calahan and Helfdane.

“Would you feel comfortable to share a few things with us?” Hollye spoke softly, keeping an eye on the heavily bandaged commander, Leov sighed as she watched the Knights take up Hollye's flank, speaking with a agitated tone as she looked from Helfdane to Calahan.

“His arms are broken, what exactly do you think he's able to do?” No response came from either man who just stared straight ahead to their target, gritting their teeth and anger showing upon their face, she knew then that there was no use in trying to speak to them at this moment.

“Sure” Came Nirrim's response to Hollye's question, nodding she looked up at him briefly.
“I am to understand that the Knights have both good and bad news of your order..” Iselinn peered from beside the moon-well as Hollye spoke authoritatively, now looking straight at Nirrim who returned her gaze defiantly.

“Yes, you have” Nirrim's reply was quick, no pauses for thought for either party, she raised an eyebrow and continued.

“I have therefore been informed that your order of assassins attacked my men, was there a reason for this and if so, why?” Hollye's tone took on one of agitation for a moment before she took a deep breath, it had clearly been a long day for her and to do this now would only cause more stress that she did not need.

“Goldilocks there, We tried to get him alone, but he is forever with a female, either trying to get them into bed or getting them drunk, either way, he’s not as stand up as he makes out to be, -he- was the target.” Nirrim motioned towards Helfdane who stood staring at him continuing to grit his teeth, Hollye eyed him quizzically.

“You attacked a member of my order, why would you do that, you attacked her in her own home” Hollye continued to look at him, searching for signs that may give away the fact that he was lying or about to attack.

“We figured we'd take him whilst intoxicated with the mage over there, figured she'd stay out of it, only she didn't and got herself into some trouble” Nirrim now motioned over to Ise, who glared at him before replying in a high pitched angered tone.

“You attack my friend in -my- house, and you think I wouldn't do anything?! What kind of coward do you think I am?!” Nirrim shrugged slightly as he looked back to Hollye who continued to watch him, briefly looking back at Calahan every now and then.

Leov phased out, thinking to herself as she stared down at the ground, the time passing by slowly as the room began to spin, her thoughts of today’s events washing over her she frowned, Nirrim was here now, arguing or not she was wrong to lie, and she knew it was something that she would not do again, even then, the voices grew more and more distant as her thoughts pulled her further away, into the safety of her mind, or so she thought, she heard a light laughter in the background, her eyes widening she shook her head and the noise of the temple slapped her in the face as the heated conversation surrounded her, looking up she noticed Nirrim and the Knights staring at her expectantly.

“Leov, I asked you a question, Do you agree for the knights to guard you solely alone, until this is further sorted?” Hollye asked her sternly, clearly agitated and angered, Leov looked at them in turn, before looking back from Hollye to Nirrim in turn and finally resting her vision momentarily on Sadine before it fell to the ground.

“Commander, I-I...” Leov's voice was weak, as she took a hand to her head and swayed.
“I er don't feel so goo-” Leov's eyes rolled into the back of her head and becoming dead weight she slipped from Sadine's grip and fell onto the floor, the knights frowned, all speaking on it being highly coincidently and a fake as Hollye stared at the unconscious Leov on the floor.

“That is -Enough-, Get her out of here, I don’t want to see her again until she can be sensible, the girl wont even answer a simple question, Iselinn, a portal to Stormwind please, I have officers to speak with and if will not wait, Calahan, you are to deal with her.” Iselinn brought up the portal with a loud cracking sound filling the air before the sounds of stormwind momentarily filled the room before Hollye walked through and the portal instinctively closed, Iselinn walked over to Leov, and turning her head pulled the coms from her ear, throwing it onto the floor infront of Nirrim she stomped on it.

“I have no interest in what mind games you have pulled on this girl, but hear me, stay away from her, do you understand? She is no longer yours to care for, she never was” Iselinn clicked her fingers as Helfdane picked Leov up into his arms, a portal to Theramore appearing within the temple as Nirrim walked into the shadow's shrugging as Helfdane stepped through with the other's before arriving in the tower of Theramore, moving Leov outside he placed her upon his drake to be flown to the Inn, once there, he lifted her off and carried her up to the room, laying her on the bed as the others surrounded it.

Iselinn stared at her as Leov stirred, frowning to herself as Leov came round she folded her arms and took on a look of angered older sister.

“What kind of stupid girl gets involved with such horrid men?” Leov grimaced as Iselinn spoke, anger raging through her voice.
“What would you have me do, would you of rather he left me in the forest to die Iselinn?!, Who knows, it would of saved on all of this, wouldn't it?” She stared up at the ceiling, anger now sweeping over Leov faster then she was used too as the rest of the remaining people sidled out of the room, leaving the two girls to talk.

“You wouldn’t understand either way, I tried to speak to you and you never have time for anyone any more anyway, so long as Iselinn is ok, Give me a pencil and paper, and I will write to him and tell him to go away, would that make you happy? Would something, finally make you happy with me? And give me another piece so I can write to Gibbzy and inform him of what's happened” Leov stared at her for a moment as she forced herself into a sitting position, biting her lip in hopes to stem the pain, Iselinn rummaged in her bags, throwing papers and pens onto the bed she stormed out of the room.

“I could care less what you do any more Leov, it is your life to throw away” Iselinn turned and looked at her before pulling the door towards her, slamming it.

Leov began to write, one to Nirrim, explaining and telling him to leave, that she could not take the danger that came with his order and that no matter what the Knights, for her, would always come first and her second letter to Gibbzy, informing him of the days happenings in full.

Tears began to roll down her face as she folded them and pushed herself from the edge of the bed, she clenched her fist and told herself to toughen up and she stumbled for the door and then the stairs, falling down a couple she wobbled her way towards Helfdane, pushing the letters into his hand she glared at him.

“Tell her, that these letters read in full what I said I would write, so I cannot be accused of back stabbing my friends or the Knights again in anyway” Helfdane unfolded them and nodded towards Iselinn.

“It's true Iselinn” He spoke softly, looking at Leov he passed them back to her with a look of concern upon his face, sighing softly as Iselinn sat and shrugged it off, drinking from her glass of whiskey, Leov rolled her eyes, turning she headed for the mail box just outside, placing them into envelopes she pushed them through the slots in the box once sealed and stamped.

“Leov, get your arse back into bed, this instant!!” Leov turned to find Sadine glaring at her from the door way, she smiled softly and shrugged.

“What does it matter, the atmosphere in there is as tense as it is on the battlefield, but yes, I'm heading for rest” Sadine laughed lightly as she took Leov's arm and helped her back to her room, she smiled softly as Leov's head hit the pillow and she covered her.

“Rest Well, Good One” Sadine whispered softly, “If only they knew everything, I doubt you would be the one in the firing line.” Leov laughed slightly, grimacing as she did so she shrugged.

“Your secrets are my secrets, and we shall never part with each other's, Sleep well, Evil One” Leov smiled faintly as her eyes closed and the darkness surrounded her and the nightmares enveloped her for the night.

The Waking Nightmare.

The noise was loud, everything echoed as she ran as fast as she could down the corridor, her heart pounding within her chest as she tried to concentrate on where to go and why they were chasing her, she turned out of the corridor into the main room of the headquarters, surrounded by the darkness, she stopped to catch her breath as the fire came to life and infront of it stood the commander.

“Leov, We should have a little chat, now don't be silly and run, their surrounding you as we speak, we don't want to have to throw you in the cell again” The Commander spoke as a smile played across her lips, the fire lightening her hair in a golden glow, her words were filled with the truth and Leov knew this, she nodded as she slowly descended the stairs, keeping her eyes on her commander, Calahan suddenly appeared behind her, pushing her with force she slipped and fell down the stairs, loud crashing filling the headquarters as she landed at the bottom, banging her head on the banister she fell unconscious.

Leov woke to the sound of a pig squealing beside her, grabbing her head she could feel no changes as she looked up into the night sky filled with stars, the dark sky only making them glow all the more, she frowned not fully understanding as a person shrouded in darkness walked slowly past her, deep in conversation as the air filled with laughter and the sound of coughing.

“Serves him right for trying to fool us, stupid boy, did he -really- think he could get away with it? We'd known for months now what he was up to, even with Iskaroth “dead” we will continue our work once the dust has settled and Iskaroth, shall rise again, only this time, we wont have any meddling paladin and his friend” Leov raised an eyebrow as she leaned around the tree stump, surrounded by members wearing a tabard she knew all to well and lead supposedly by a man her best friend had trusted lay her mentor, Roike Du-Ley, Shayanan kicked his lifeless body, the air filled with his followers laughter in return as he spoke.

“Right, Pack up, all of you are to follow me to our base, those of you that don't know were clearly not paying attention, Leave him there, a nice little present for the Knights, a warning, if you like” Shayanan smirked down as he climbed up onto his proto-drake, pulling on it's harness it glided into the sky, pushing down gust's of wind and pushing up dirt and dust in it's place, Leov's eye's began to fill as a sudden thudding of hooves came from behind her, shuffling into the bush's she noticed the Knights gather around her mentor's body, laying lifeless in the clearing and covered in blood, taking his possessions from him they stood and stared down at the body.

“Stupid man, thought he could play both side's well, either way, he got what he deserved, Leave him here, he's not ours to deal with, he deserves nothing from the Knight's, not a thing, betrayer, deceiver” This was all that Leov could pick up from the sudden influx of noise before the laughter started, crawling from the bush's she looked around the tree again to find the Knights and the Rose laughing together and kicking the body, Hollye waved her hand in a motion for the knights to move out, they climbed onto their mounts and rode out in their separate directions, once again leaving the body in the clearing, waiting a while Leov pushed herself up and walked warily over to Roike.

“Roike, Please, you have to get up, thing's aren't right any more, you can't leave, not now, it's not over” Leov slammed her hand onto his chest as she spoke, the tears rolling down her face all the more before her head finally fell against him and she hugged him lightly, hoping that he would suddenly move and that he'd played one of his horrible tricks on her.

“The People you told me to trust, told me to go to if anything happened, are the people that despise you as much as the rose, please Roike, you have to get up...” Leov's hand was taken from around Roike and forced into an upstanding position as she stared at Gibbzy, his free hand glowing in a bright orange fire against the darkness of the night, he smirked at her.

“Leov Lahnmaiden, Fancy seeing you here, you know... I have a job to do my dear, don’t worry, I shant hurt you” he grinned in delight as he eyed over her body pulling her close he whispered to her.

“I shall be payed highly for bringing you into them, and, the best part is, I can have my fun and they wont care if your dead or alive, would you like to play a little game, it's called, you run and I chase, the first to die, loses” he pushed her away and stared deep into her eye's, holding her wrist all the tighter she frowned, wiping her face with her free hand she stared back and nodded her head.

“Let the game begin, Gibbzy Anduin”. She forced a soft laugh as she spoke, running as soon as he let go of her hand she prayed to the light that Roike's body would be taken and redemption for the thing's he'd done on his wrong path given where possible, looking back she saw Roike's body slowly disappear into the darkness as a fireball hurled towards her, diving to the side and into a tree she fell to the floor as the darkness closed around her and her eye's shut as the blood trickled down her head and her heart raced.

Leov jerked awake as the sunlight bathed her hair, turning it into a red fire against the dark bark of the tree, the water dripped down her face as she looked up at the tall nightelf peering at her, shrouded by a hood with antler's she smiled softly, knowing who it was.

“Leak, isn't it?” The nightelf merely nodded and waved her hand for silence.

“He's not far away little one, I suggest you run, and, at first chance you hide and sleep, do you understand me?” Leov nodded, looking all the more confused by the druids words, what was she doing here anyway, quickly dismissing the thought's from her mind she took a deep breath and began to run as fast as she could, hear head filling with questions as she did so, her heart pounded and to Leov, it felt as though every foot fall echoed within the woods silence. After running for what seemed like a good hour, with no advances of fireballs or other missiles of the game, she climbed a small cliff to the top and hide beneath a tree, out of breath and in need of a drink she pulled her rucksack from her back and retrieved the water, sipping it slowly.

“What is going on, the knight's, Gibbzy, The rose... their working together? What in light's name have I done wrong” Leov frowned as she slumped back against the tree, dawn was breaking and she had hoped Gibbzy had given up his hunt for at least now, she closed her eyes softly, if not only for a break.

Upon waking horror and blood filled screams could be heard from the surrounding area's, looking down on the village she could see her old home, and the city of Andorhal in flame's the blood curdling yells of the monster's returned and Leov covered her ears and closed her eyes to hear nothing but the yells and cries of her family as they fought infront of her as a small child, the tears streamed down her face as the pictures of what she had seen entered her mind all to clearly, it had been more then ten years she thought briefly, why, why do they still haunt me...

“Leov” Gibbzy's voice could softly be heard above all the screaming of man or beast, she shook her head and she picked up her bag and began to run again as fast as she could.

“Leov, please, your scaring us, it's been two weeks, you have to wake up soon....” Leov shook her head as his voice played out in her mind, losing footing her heart raced as she tumbled down the hill and landed into the water, flailing her arms around as she tried to breath for air she sank to the bottom slowly as everything around her faded away and grew distant.

Gibbzy sat beside Leov, holding her hand in his as he laid a cold cloth on her head, frowning slightly as he nodded a greeting to Aron.

“Any change?” Aron motioned to Leov as he spoke, looking up at him again Gibbzy sighed and shook his head.

“Nothing, she speaks in her sleep occasionally, but I can't make out what it is, they'll pay for this Aron, of that I swear, what they have done to our order I will not tolerate, and the sooner that undead bitch is wiped from this existence, the better” Gibbzy squeezed Leov's hand a little tighter as he spoke, his hatred for the vile thorn had only grown over the past weeks and more, it had always been there, but to see Leov unconscious seemed to push him to far, they had filled her with holes once again and made her lose unconsciousness all the more through blood loss, little did he know what was happening in her unwaking state.

“They will pay for what they have done, for what they have done to all three of the girl's, I have news that Hollye is safe and well, being treated in the Cathedral and once mended will be down to see the girl's” Aron spoke with concern as he kept his eye's on Leov, smiling reassuringly towards them he nodded his head as Calahan appeared from the shadow's, Leov stirred slightly, opening her eye's she stared up at Gibbzy, holding her breath she slowly slipped her hand from his and shuffled backwards, her eyes welling up as she spoke.

“Please, I've done nothing wrong, I can't run any more...please, don't hurt me, you cant hurt me, I've done nothing” Leov's voice croaked as Calahan looked directly at her, Gibbzy looked up, snapping from his thoughts he frowned slightly.

“Leov, nobody's going to hurt you, your safe now..Your all safe now..” Gibbzy smiled slightly, making his way to Leov as Calahan cut across him and spoke to her, seemingly concerned.

“Aye Lass, your safe, amongst the Knights and in the temple, Don't you worry” Calahan sent her one of his reassuring smiles, mixed with his usual flirtatious one, Leov shook her head, her fiery red hair falling over her face as she clung to the cloak that had been covering her.

“Please, I just want to go home, to my real friends and family, please, help me get home...” she looked up at Gibbzy pleadingly as she spoke.

“Leov, you are home, you remember us all right, your safe, don't be silly, your acting irrational” Gibbzy spoke softly to her as Calahan watched intrigued and puzzled, Leov shuffled away as Gibbzy reached out his hand to Leov, smiling softly.

“No!, you said that before and then threw a fireball at me, said it was a game, PLEASE, I just want to go back to my family and friends” Leov took the cloak and buried her face in it, crying hysterically now through fear and tiredness, Gibbzy's eyes changed suddenly to a dark black as he frowned, his voice turning darker and deeper.

“You stupid, weak willed Knight's, toughen up, your becoming no fun to hunt” Gibbzy glared at Calahan as the demon holding Gibbzy spoke, slowly walking him back to the edge of the ledge, turning him and preparing to jump from it, Leov stood up slowly and shook her head, taking Gibbzy's hand softly she tugged on it.

“Please, help me get home...” Gibbzy's eyes changed colour instantly, his eyes filling with tears as he looked down at Leov.

“Calahan, you have to get her proof that she is safe and home, get her Rose, from her bedside shelf...” Leov looked up at him, wiping her face she smiled softly and looked from Calahan to Gibbzy.

“My Rose, you know about my Rose?” Gibbzy nodded immediately in reply to her.

“Ofcourse I know about your rose, it took me twenty five attempts to get the enchantment just right, so it would never die, how could I forget about the Rose” Leov smiled brightly, pulling him close she grimaced in pain and hugged him tightly before running over and throwing her arms around Calahan and Aron in return, hugging them tightly.

“So, Welcome back Lass” Calahan laughed heartily as he flashed her a smile.

“Asleep almost two weeks, you had us worried you did...” Aron spoke softly as he took her over to where she had woke up and sat her down, Gibbzy looked down at her with a big smile on his face, amidst the look of confusion and relief, Calahan looked at her once he'd done speaking with Aron and nodded.

“Lass, I have a job for you, I hereby order that you remain by Gibbzy's side until further instructed” Leov frowned, raising an eyebrow questioningly as she looked up at him.

“And why is that?” she asked him.

“He seems to be getting possessed, and you seem to be the only thing keeping him in his rightful mind” he spoke softly as he looked down at her, she nodded in return.

“Fine” she smiled up at Gibbzy reassuringly as she turned slightly.

Leov laid her head down on the mat she had been sleeping on, and yawned sleepily, the nightmares had taken it out of her, she had barely rested at all, looking up to Gibbzy she smiled softly.

“Leak was in my dreams...” as she spoke he looked down at her seemingly confused and just nodded as he wrapped the cloak around her again.

Three weeks passed before the new location for them all to go was arranged, Sadine had disappeared in the night and Aron had taken Ascendien home for minor studies and rest, leaving Leov and Gibbzy within the temple, alone with no visitors for a week since Leov's waking, the sun shone outside and Leov's will to just leave grew stronger, Calahan appeared from the shadow's and Leov grabbed him and held him in one place long enough for a change of scene to be arranged.

“We can move to the headquarters, we'll need healers, guards and the ground to be blessed daily until we can leave and he is cured, it should at least weaken any undead wishing to enter and if the demon tries to take hold it will weaken her aswell” Leov smiled softly as she gave him the list of things needed.

“Alright lass, I'll arrange it, but first, there’s a warrior needs dealing with also that we've been keeping here” Calahan smiled as he patted her back, hugging her softly, Leov raised an eyebrow, unsure if she was confused by his hug or the warrior he'd mentioned.

“Iselinn has a key to my place, I need my black leather bound book, with the chunky lock on it, I need a few changes of clothing and my books on demons and their behaviours, I'm sure you can find the books appropriate to this situation” Calahan looked at her questioningly as she rattled of her list of books.

“Don't look at me like that, I have magi's for parents, its hard not to have so many books or to of not read about all sorts of thing's” Leov laughed slightly as she remembered her countless bookshelf’s, sighing slightly as she wished she could go back to her own bed, Calahan nodded, letting her go he told her to rest and that he'd be back soon.

Leov watched as Calahan walked down to a night elf woman beside the moon-well, joined by her guardian Amarsen and a druid tiger she smiled softly, knowing she was safe as a wave of pain soared across her head Calahan disappeared from view and she fell to the ground holding her head tightly as she let out a scream of pain the priestess came running towards her to lay on healing as the young paladin clung to reality a hand fell onto her head with a combined power of Gibbzy and Aron, both grimacing in pain from the shield that protected Leov's mind, placed there by her possessor, a laughter broke into Gibbzy's mind as the pain washed over him, determined to find the source he continued his hold of Leov's mind as she passed out from the pain.

“I wouldn't do that if I was you” The voice laughed as it spoke within the magi's mind.

“she will succumb to me eventually, we will meet again and she will keep you away for your own safety, pretty boy, oh, and unless you wish to cause her more pain, I’d let go if I was you” the voice turned into a manic laughter inside his head as the high-lord continued his torment and provoking, Gibbzy frowned, unable to take any more of the pain now, combined or not with Aron he let go off Leov's head and left the Priestess to work with Leov and bring her back to consciousness once rested.

“He has a shield, something that causes great pain, she's spoken to a lot of people and nobody can remove it as of yet, it cause's them to much pain to even try, he has a hold, he weakened her enough to do it...” Gibbzy spoke in soft hushed tones to Aron as the walked away, both glancing over to Leov to check on her every now and then both seemingly very worried, Aron nodded, staring into space in one of his meditative states as he thought.

((When I joined the Knights there was so much going on that made no sense to me, after the latest chapter of this history line I suddenly realised why things took place around me the first few weeks of me joining. I understand now, and although never a part of what I see here, what I am part of now has been made richer by reading what has gone before. Thank you my friend.))

A few days passed, with Aron suddenly dropping his meditative state, Leov raised an eyebrow, frowning slightly as he clicked her finger's before walking off, mumbling to himself, the last thing she heard him say was something about Ascendien and letters, she shrugged softly, resting back against the wall she sighed, watching the comings and goings off the temple as a figure she recognised materialised infront of the moon-well, once moved another two she recognised joined him, she giggled as one seemed to fall through the portal instead of step from it, she continued to watch as they headed for the slope up to the balcony and around to her.

“Leov, we need to move you to the cathedral for the night, then onto the arranged place for the pair of you, ok?” Calahan looked her her, seemingly slightly tired and troubled, the nightelf had been handled, kidnapped the night before by a few thugs, she nodded and slipped from the ledge to gather her things.

“One of you can wake him, he's grumpy when I wake him, I get the feeling he's not a morning person...” Leov giggled as she spoke, placing her blankets and other items into her bag and fastening it tightly, pulling it up onto her back, looking tired still and grimacing slightly as she watched Calahan attempt to wake up the Magi, she smirked.

Gibbzy shuffled, grumbling about being woken up he straightened his hair and sighed, frowning up at Calahan as he began to chuckle at the magi's reaction.

“Right, grab your things, were on the move, Cathedral for the night then onto the arranged place”. Calahan turned, and looked at the two behind him, they stood silently, as he shook his head, grabbing their things Leov and Gibbzy moved towards the slope, gliding down it and out into the fresh air, she took a deep breath smiling softly as she called out for Kesa, flying down to her the grypon seemed all to happy to finally see her mistress, giggling she fed her some berry’s and climbed up onto her, watching Gibbzy climb onto Lily, she leaned over and pet the snow white bird.

“Right, come on then you two...” Calahan's hippogryph soared up into the air, heading for the way portal to Ru'therean village, Leov's eyes widened as Kesa dived towards the ground suddenly and through the portal, materialising on the other side, Leov was able to smell the fresh sea air, taking in a deep breath they flew towards the ship awaiting them.

The ship rocked softly as the waves crashed against the wooden hull, filling the air with a loud cracking sound each time, Leov sat down on the deck, watching the horizon disappear from view, she smiled to herself as Gibbzy sat down beside her, she pushed him playfully, laughing he pushed her back.

“What time to you think we'll dock?” She looked at him as she spoke softly as he shrugged.
“Not until later tonight I expect..” he smiled down at her, wrapping his cloak back around her that he'd taken from her bag, she blushed brightly, pulling it around her tighter, he hugged her lightly, laughing.

Time seemed to fly as they sat on the deck, watching the waves, the sky's and generally talking, she smiled softly, as the night sky came into view, she looked up to the stars and giggled, he looked at her, seeming thoughtful as the ship came into dock, stepping from the it, they called for their gryphon’s and headed for the Cathedral, Calahan leading the way as the lights of stormwind glowed brightly from the sky, landing after the short flight she pet Kesa as she slid from her, feeding her a few berry's she told her to go wait close by and rest before she headed into the cathedral, the grypon growling softly as she flew into the sky.

(( An extremely long chapter that i'll be breaking up into installments, so today you get the first two pages, and over the next few days i will keep updating with two new pages or so, hope its ok!))

The Nightmare's deepen.

Leov stretched as she sat up in the cathedral, she'd fallen to sleep almost instantly once inside, the fires from the torches continued to burn intensely around the room filling it with light, looking over to the entrance of the crypt and the big metal doors that keep the way shut she shivered slightly, as she thought of all the bodies that could be down there, a noise from the other side of the room soon distracting her thoughts and her eyes fell on a Dranei asleep on the floor, raising an eyebrow she eyed her over carefully, noticing the Knight tabard laying over her cover she gasped slightly, standing up she walked over to the place she laid and looked at her, realizing that nothing major had happened at least that could be seen, she looked back over to Gibbzy who sat reading, watching her carefully, he nodded in greeting.

“Morning Sleepyhead!” He chuckled as he spoke to her, motioning to the sleeping Dranei as he spoke again.
“She was brought in last night by Leak and Amarsen, Woke me up the pair of them did, she's been attended too, apparently she's a new arms-woman, found in the hills surrounding Ironforge” Gibbzy smiled softly as he looked up at Leov, who's eyes had filled with concern and worry for the arms-woman, she nodded, turning slightly, she began to walk back to Gibbzy, sitting beside him she pushed him playfully as she looked down at his book and poked it slightly noticing it was black and leather, with paper that looked rather dated.

“What you reading then?” She asked, as she looked up at him, he laughed softly and closed it, placing it in his bags quickly and shook his head, she leaned over, looking at the title, unable to read it properly she smiled as she sure the gold accented writing line the spine of the book.
“Oh, it's nothing of importance, nothing that would interest someone as wise and pretty as you at least” Gibbzy grinned slightly as he looked into her eyes, her face turning a crimson red she shook her head softly, looking back over to the Dranei she motions slightly in an attempt to change the subject.

“Do you think she's going to be ok then? Gibbzy nodded slightly, smirking at her reaction, as he looked over to the Dranei on the floor.
“She'll be fine, She was lucky to be found though, light knows what those two were doing out there...” Gibbzy grinned slightly at the mention of his best friend and Leov's guardian being out in the hills of Ironforge alone, Leov looked at him, shaking her head, she sighed and rolled her eyes.
“Your terrible Gibbzy Anduin!”She giggled as she looked back over to the Dranei, a distinct clanking sound began to descend down the slope to the room they all rested in, turning her head she looked over, squinting slightly as she tried to make out who it was, she rose back up from the floor and headed over to the newcomer, smiling softly as she realized it was her Arms-man Kalaa, she nodded in greeting.

“Morning Kalaa, here to help with the move are you?” Kalaa nodded as he saluted to Leov, who blushed again in return, she still hadn’t quite gotten used to having a arms-man yet, she looked back at Gibbzy who waved slightly in their direction.

“Kalaa, I need to make some errands, please let them know when they get here, I won't be long anyway...” Kalaa nodded and sighed slightly, Leov raised an eyebrow as she looked him over.
“Is something wrong? Where is Sadine?” Kalaa shrugged slightly, sighing again as he looked at her.
“I have no idea, I came here looking for her truth be told, but should assistance be needed, here I am” he smiled slightly as he placed his helmet back on his head, Leov nodded, turning to leave the slope, her mind awash of where Sadine could of gotten too this time, realizing she hadn’t seen her since Sadine had left the temple in Darnassus a week and more ago, Leov walked to the nearest post box and wrote a letter to Sadine, posting it straight away.

Once done she called down Kesa and climbed onto her back, she headed for her vault and took her armour from it, forcing herself into her full light-sworn she grimaced with the pain as she did so, taking her time to get used to the weight she felt herself to be weak, frowning to herself she made a mental note to train harder as soon as all this stuff with Gibbzy was over, she left the vault and climbed back up onto the waiting Kesa, placing her helm on her head she pet Kesa who flew into the air gently gliding back towards the Cathedral, once there Leov slide from her back and gave the griffon some berry's, motioning for her to take to the sky’s once done, Leov slowly walked into the cathedral, gathering her strength as much as she could so as not to look weak, she walked down the spiral to find Sadine standing with Aminda, Leak and Azeraii, noticing the tension in the room it was clear that Leak had no time for the Dranei mage standing at the other end of the room especially when talking in Draenic or what seemed to be a completely different language altogether, Leov rolled her eyes, sighing she passed them all and sat by one of the posts, observing them quietly as they spoke about the arms-woman, Azeraii continuing to speak in what was deemed to be demonic and draenic, Leak spoke of making a complaint about her to the officers of the Knights, Aminda frowned and nodded, eyeing the pair of them as she told them to be quiet she turned back to the Dranei who now sat against the wall

“Miss Gelana, I understand you were found by the Druidess in the hills of Ironforge and brought here for medical treatment and healing, please could you tell us what happened from there onwards and also before you were found?” Leov listened for a while as the Dranei began to talk, she looked over to Sadine who stood in the darkness, watching it all happen as she spoke softly with Kalaa, Leov rolled her eyes and looked up to the ceiling, her thoughts taking ahold of her again, suddenly realizing it had been three weeks at least since she had last spoken to Nirrim she sighed softly, suddenly feeling a pang of missing him she shook her head slightly, feeling all the more confused then she did before, she refused to think on it any longer and moved her thoughts onto those of the Knights and where if anywhere she stood with them at this moment in time along with everything else in her life she felt lost, confused, unwanted, scared and tired, her thoughts quickly began to change to those of the high-lord and anger of still not knowing a lot about him washed over her briefly, she frowned, Gibbzy walked over to her and pushing on her shoulder softly, he smiled at her, she shook her head as she was forced back to reality, frowning slightly, as she noticed everyone looking at her, Leak and Azeraii gone.

“Miss Lahnmaiden, I trust you are ready..” Aminda stared at her with a stern look, apparently not happy that Leov had not responded as quickly as she would of liked, Leov nodded.
“Good, Calahan awaits you on the steps, Miss Gelana will be joining you in the new place and apparently, you have arranged everything needed for whilst your there, I will see you all soon” Leov looked at her, sighing slightly she nodded as Aminda made herself busy with gathering her things and headed for the slope, Leov looked over to Gelana and smiled sweetly, holding out her hand Gelana shook it softly once within reach.

“Welcome to the Knights, I'm Leov Lahnmaiden.” Leov took her hand away and smiled again, heading for the slope as Gelana nodded in greeting.
“I suppose we should head to Captain Scully, Come on you two..” Leov laughed slightly, heading up the slope, she could hear the two of them follow behind, smiling slightly as they headed down the long hall of the main cathedral and out to the steps, Calahan nodded in greeting with his charming smile and looked to Gibbzy.

“Throw up a portal to Ironforge would you?” Gibbzy frowned slightly as Calahan asked, nodding in reply he began to speak softly, purple and light blue weaves of arcane began flowing around his hands, becoming more intense in colour as the portal began to appear infront of them the noises of Ironforge muffled as they came from the portal, Calahan smiled nodding in thanks.

“Right, once through it's onto the griffon’s that await you, who will take you to your destination, Leov, I’ve arranged all that you asked for, unfortunately the shield cannot be kept up at all times, would cost way to much, but when you sleep and during meetings” Calahan smiled again and Leov nodded, stepping into the portal she was transported to Ironforge, the sudden sounds surrounding her ears, this place to Leov was much louder then that of stormwind, she always assumed it was due to it being closed almost completely that the sounds were made louder, the smell of the lava assaulted her nostrils and she knew if she really wanted too she could just run through the way to the left and to her home, frowning slightly at the thought she shook her head and walked over to the griffon, climbing onto it's back she waited for the other's who seemed to Leov to be taking their time.

A wave of pain pulsed over Leov's head, scrunching her eyes, she fell against the bird as she waited for the other's making it look like she was resting briefly she took her hand to her head and grimaced, the pain subsiding as Gibbzy and Gelana walked towards her, speaking amongst themselves they climbed onto the birds, a low growl from the three griffon's as they beat their wings, the wind beating up the dirt from the forge and around the three of them, running slightly as they glided into the air they flew through Ironforge and out into the open air of Dun Morogh, heading for the Headquarters Leov's thoughts returned to all that was going on for her, the Knights, Her nightmares, Roike, Tyridon, Nirrim, Gibbzy but above all else, the things she held closest, her foster parents and her long passed family, Ascendien and Sadine.

She frowned as the cold air whipped around her, soon changing in climate, to the damp air from the wetlands she pulled her cloak around herself and sighed, shaking her head she began to sing lightly in an attempt to keep the thoughts away, as the headquarters came into view she pet the griffon as it descended to the ground, feeding the three birds berry's in turn before they took off to the coupé, she smiled softly and motioned for Gelana and Gibbzy to follow her, placing her cloak into her bags she walked through the huge archway of the headquarters and past the guards now surrounding it, a holy presence was given off as the magi's sat and read, waiting for the night to fall, the headquarters filled with warmth was welcoming and comforting as the paladins and priests prepared for any outcome in healing or blessing, the paladins took turns to bless the headquarters, for whilst the three knights remained within the building, Leov lead them down to the main room and had them sit infront of the fire to warm up, leaving to go grab sandwich’s she brought them back to find them talking infront of the fire with a pack of self made cards, she giggled softly, handing them the plates, she sat and watched, staring off into the fire as the screams of her family surrounded her, resounding within her mind as the flames flickered and danced in her eye line, scrunching her eyes closed she shook her head and returned to watching Gibbzy and Gelana play with the cards.

Time passed as the night drew in, Leov walked past the two of them as they sat and continued to play all sorts of different card games, she laughed slightly, throwing new logs onto the fire before leaving and bringing them both back a cup of warm chocolate, handing it to them she pulled the cloak around her again and held the mug in her hands for warmth as she started to shiver a sudden, flash surrounded the room a purple flash of arcane enlightened and left through each door, diminishing as a mage at the back of the room stood and spoke softly to herself, she smiled down to Leov, nodding in greeting, sliding down into her chair all the more relaxed she felt the arcane energy buzz around the room, suddenly missing her foster parents she sighed deeply, closing her eyes as she placed the cup on the chair next to her, curling up into it she rested her head, falling into a deep sleep.

Leov jumped awake to the sound of screaming, sitting up she looked around the headquarters, the fire had almost vanished into nothing, the embers and small pieces of wood glowing gently through the darkness, the arcane buzz continued around the room, looking up she came to the conclusion she woke from yet another nightmare, frowning she began to wonder how she could look after Gibbzy when she was too weak to sort out her own problems, a voice began to ring out in her head, one she had heard often.
“I would die for my friends at the drop of a heart beat” She whispered to herself, nodding, it suddenly seemed to become clear to herself again.

Looking down she noticed Gelana and Gibbzy still sat, talking amongst themselves, she smiled slightly as they turned to look at her, clearly worried, she nodded as she stood, placing the cloak back around her she yawned.

“It's late, we should sleep” she spoke softly as she looked at them, nodding in agreement with herself they stood and placed their mugs and the cards on the table, following her from the room to the bunks in the upper level of the headquarters, laying down on a bed each they bid each other a final goodnight, leaning over Gibbzy blew out the candle that lit the room, sitting back up he squeezed Leov's hand reassuringly, quickly pulling her hand away, blushing as she smiled softly, she turned, facing away from him as she pulled the covers high up over herself.

“Leov..” Gibbzy shook her urgently in the early hours of the morning.
“Leov, light be damned, wake up Leov...” Gibbzy took a damp cloth from the guard that had just entered and placed it on her face, gasping deeply, she pulled the cloth from her face and frowned, looking at him as she placed the cloth in his hands.
“What is it..” she spoke, seemingly slightly agitated, he looked at her frowning as he rolled his eyes, motioning for the guard to leave as he nodded his appreciation, jumping back up onto his bed he looked at her, seemingly concerned but hurt by her reply on waking.
“You were talking in your sleep, crying too, the guards had tried to wake you, but they couldn’t so woke me to wake you, you had us all worried, Leov, is he still harming you?” Gibbzy looked at her, the concern showing on his face as she frowned at him, turning away she laid back down.
“That's not what were here for, I'm fine, everyone has nightmares...” she pulled her blankets over herself, unwilling to mention he had invaded her dreams again, the tears silently made their way down her face as she stared up to the ceiling, Gibbzy spoke softly as he climbed into his cover's.
“Your not alone Leov, if nobody else, I am here for you to talk to no matter what may happen...” He smiled slightly before blowing out the candle again, leaving her to think, her thoughts washing over her again.

How could he be there, everyone left her at some point, its the way things worked for her, even Nirrim hadn’t been seen since their argument over the rose death knight and she'd vowed to do what was necessary to take Nirrim away from Leov for good, Sadine had run off, Duskshade no where to be found, Corlain working with the argent crusade, Iselinn way to busy along with Calahan, her family had left her years ago, and all she had left were people promising not to leave her, yet they had vanished, just like Roike, she frowned covering her face as she took a deep breath, wondering why it still hurt her that so many people had left and that Roike had died on her, leaving her to deal with things alone, she took another deep breath and decided not to show any emotions from no on, to not allow anything to harm her, she knew they'd leave eventually, no matter of the promises they made, they'd made that much clear and always proved her right, no longer would she believe them, she closed her eyes, whispering to herself as she did so.
“He's right, even if he wants me dead... the high-lord is right, whoever he is, they make the promises to shut me up and leave as soon as they can...” She sighed, softly as she finished the whisper, letting the darkness surround her, pulling her back into a light sleep.

Leov woke, stretching as she slipped elegantly from the bed, noticing both the others had left as she heard their voices ring through the corridors, grabbing the towel at the end of the bed she headed for the bathroom, sliding the bolt across the door to lock it she slipped a hand into the shower, turning the dial slowly till it felt warm enough to her hand, the steam began to fill the room as she slipped from her night dress and under garments, stepping elegantly into the shower, the water began cascading down over her skin softly, the light from the ceiling making her skin glimmer in the reflection from the water, she stood and let the water fall, clearing her head for the day she took a deep breath, before washing herself and her hair, the bubbles sliding down as the water washed it away from her, turning the shower off she pushed out a hand, pulling her towel around her she smiled softly, feeling refreshed as she dried herself off and began to dress.

Leov wandered off down to the main room once dressed, as she grew closer her ears were suddenly assaulted with the sound of the knights off duty and visiting the headquarters for their rest and something to eat, she smiled softly as she continued her way down the stairs, once at the bottom she stood and listened for a while, turning slightly she found Gibbzy stood at the top of the stairs staring at her with a smile on his face, she raised an eyebrow and headed up to him, once there he wrapped his arms around her in a hug.

“Morning you” Gibbzy spoke softly as her face blushed to a bright red, she nodded as she wrapped her arms around him in return, smiling slightly as she looked down at the others,
“So, what’s going on then?” she asked as Gibbzy chuckled at her, he shrugged slightly and looked at her.
“Weekly guild meeting of the Knights, remember?” Leov looked at him, slightly confused she nodded and stepped away from him, quickly running up to her room she pulled on her armour as best she could and ran back down to the main room just as Aminda white came in, looking around for the commander or the captains Leov realized it would be the secretary that held the meeting today with a pile of papers in her hands, Aminda coughed slightly to clear her throat behind the Knights, the quiet fell across the room and she nodded, turning to Leov she smiled slightly.
“Miss Lahnmaiden, if you would do the honours” Leov looked surprised but nodded and moved infront of the fire, letting out a loud yell once there.
“Knights, Attention!” The knights dotted around the room turned to look at Leov before going back to talking, sighing she let out a bigger and louder yell asking for the same, echoing around the room, the knights jumped to their feet standing to attention and saluted in turn, frowning as she noticed some still sitting and talking and Aminda's look of disbelief, she yelled again for the knights to fall into a line, which ended up crooked as she looked down the line she frowned again and made a mental note to speak with Captain Blackmoon about more boot camps.

“Very well, at ease” Aminda's voice made it clear how unhappy she was with the knights not falling into line properly and she knew Aminda would be taking down a note for boot camps also, Leov sighed as she moved back down to the front of the fire, listening to the news.
“Evening Knights, due to the Commander still missing in action, and the captains rallying to find her and begin plans, I shall be holding this meeting today, now, please be aware that under no circumstances should you anger or wind up Mr Anduin” She gestured towards him sat in a chair infront of her.
“We are at this moment in time attempting to find a way to bring him out of his condition, as you all may know a demon has taken ahold of him and will not let go, the demon usually finds its way in when he is angered, so please, avoid angering him at all costs” Aminda looked around the knights for their reactions, small whispers could be heard about the situation.

“Also, Miss Gelana will be staying with Leov and Gibbzy here in the keep until we can find a cure for the rune on her back, please be aware that should you see anyone that is not to be within the keep or is not a Knight, you are to report it to the guards immediately for investigation, She will be staying here, as the rune that has been inscribed upon her back is one that causes a lot of pain when in the presence of the person that inscribed it upon her.” Aminda looked around them again, nodding slightly as some of them began to take down notes, Leov slowly and discreetly took a hand to her head as the sound of screaming rang out again, she closed her eyes and took a deep breath, doing her best to get rid of it, deciding to sing quietly to herself she drifted away from the voices filling the room she was in.

“Miss Lahnmaiden!” Aminda and the knights looked at her as she was snapped back to reality, looking at them she blushed brightly, nodding her head.
“You may carry on” Aminda looked at her again as she spoke to Leov, who nodded and coughed to clear her throat.
“Knights, Attention!” Without delay as she yelled the knights stood and saluted Aminda who began to leave the room, Leov sighed, raising her voice again.
“Knights, Dismissed!” Leov looked around them all, some ran off to get into armour, others sat down and talked with the other remaining Knights, Leov smiled softly and headed to the back of the room, she spoke with one of the guards, asking for permission to go outside for a while, even if it had been a day inside it had been way to long for Leov, she asked for a paladin and a guard to walk with them and stay close by, the guard nodded and left to gather what was asked for, turning, Leov looked down at the remaining knights before heading back down to them.
“If you wish to join me on a small walk outside you are all more then welcome” Leov smiled softly and began to make her way to the entrance, her armour clanging as it weighed down on her already weakened body, knowing she had been foolish to force herself back into full plate so soon she shrugged and struggled on, looking back she saw that Gibbzy and Gelana had followed her, once at the entrance she smiled softly to see Sadine dismounting from her griffon, although a slight feeling of anger and upset also mixed in with it.

“Evening Sadine, were about to head for a walk, your more then welcome to come...” Sadine nodded, smiling at Leov gently, the paladin rushed past Leov and began to bless the grounds stopping at a small hill towards the entrance of the hinterlands Leov sat down, followed by the others as they began to talk, the night stars high above their heads lighting the sky along with the big silver moon, Leov smiled softly as she remembered what her father had always told her, she blushed and giggled, the others raising an eyebrow as they looked at her, a distinct smell suddenly surrounding them Leov stood and looked around warily as Anethrax dropped from the shadow's only a few feet away.

“Leov, Isn't it?” Anethrax spoke in common to her as she eyed her over, the rest on the hill standing in alarm, Leov looked at them and warily waved her hand not to attack as she eyed Anethrax's black mask and tabard.
“Yes..I assume your Anethrax, what do you want?” Leov looked back to the other's making sure they were all alright.
“Do not raise your weapons, there is no way in Azeroth that she came here alone to stand infront of four Knights, no matter how lucky she may be..” Anethrax laughed dryly at the comment and nodded slightly.
“Where is your commander Leov” Leov shrugged and spoke honestly, with a extremely sweet smile on her face as Gelana fell forward slightly, taking a soft blow to her head.
“We do not know, she is MIA, and I suggest you stop your thorns from playing like children” Anethrax looked at her and nodded slightly.
“See, last time we saw her, she fell down a waterfall and we haven’t seen her since, we'd like to meet with her again” Anethrax's yellow glowing eyes seemed to give off a look of glee as she spoke of meeting with Hollye again, Leov shook her head, continuing to force the small smile on her face.
“That will not happen, I have no doubt she will be home to us soon safe and sound” Anethrax nodded again, she spoke into her coms softly in orchish that sat in her ear, looking back to Leov briefly.
“That is ofcourse, unless we find her first and have our fun” Anethrax looked behind Leov, eyeing over Sadine.
“Oh, Sadine, How is Kalaa, is he well?” Sadine stood and stared at her, placing a hand on her dagger, Leov narrowed her eyes, eyeing Anethrax over briefly as Iselinn appeared behind Anethrax and began to channel a spell, her hands glowing in a blue light as a block of ice appeared around the rogues feet.
“Kalaa is fine, why do you care anyway, he isn’t one of yours” Leov's voice begun to become agitated as Iselinn fell to the floor, bleeding from her side, the culprit quickly vanishing back into the safety of the shadow's as Duskpaw appeared from the shadow's and quietly walked towards the fallen, scooping her into his arms he headed back without a word to the headquarters, followed closely by Gelana, Leov smiled sweetly as she spoke.
“I suggest you leave, now Anethrax, and do not return, for if you do, it will -not- be so much of a happy ending for you and your thorns, I can assure you” Anethrax eyed her over, waving her hand dismissively she stepped backwards preparing to step into the shadow's.
“Let the hunt begin Leov, I do hope you find your commander before us” Anethrax's voice was tainted with sarcasm as she spoke, finally stepping back into the shadow's she vanished, Leov turned to face Gibbzy and Sadine, nodding towards the headquarters they all headed back in silence, Leov's mind racing as she noticed Helfdane standing at the entrance.

“Hello Helfdane, nobody is allowed in for our protection unless a Knight, now what is it?” Leov's voice faltered, sounding fed up and agitated suddenly, she eyed the nightelf that had been taken away from the temple and rolled her eyes.

“Gibbzy, Deal with Helfdane...Oh, and Helf, I wouldn’t make him angry, but you know that by now...right?” Leov smirked slightly, turning to speak to Sadine,
“Evil one, tell Kalaa I wish to see him as soon as possible, I want to know what my arms-man has gotten himself into..” the two girls began to walk down the hall way speaking softly between themselves a yell from Helfdane followed them, sighing Leov turned and walked back to them.
“Ok, hand her and her friend over then, we'll take good care of them for you..” Leov smiled sweetly, motioning for Rheiya and her friend to join them, they followed Leov down, Rheiya's hands tied she sighed angrily, once at the end of the hallway and out of ear shot, Leov turned to speak with Sadine again to find her gone, frowning she turned back to Rheiya who spoke of her grandfather, nodding Leov made plans for them to be moved to a safe place and told them to keep away from Helfdane and such like at all costs, telling them to get in touch with her should they need assistance, Rheiya nodded, as Sadine appeared behind Leov again.

“Good one, I could take them to the place you, yourself used not so long ago” Leov jumped, turning around she nodded slightly.
“Good idea, take them now?... We'll speak tomorrow..” Leov smiled slightly as she turned back to Rheiya.
“There’s not a lot in the place, blankets and mats to sleep on, enough wood for the fire, some food and other essentials, but its better then nothing and its a roof..” Leov smiled sweetly as she untied the rope around Rheiya's hands, the two night elves followed Sadine out of the building, sighing Leov turned back to Gibbzy, smiling softly as she yawned.
“I think i'm going to head off for sleep, enjoy your night..” Leov hugged him briefly, turning she headed for the bunks on the upper level, her mind awash with the days events, knowing she'd have to write up at least three reports she sighed, climbing up into her bunk she changed under the covers before laying down, wrapping the blankets tightly around her she closed her eyes and let the night surround her.

A week had passed now since she last spoke with Sadine, the same day the Vile Thorns had arrived out of no where to threaten the Commander, and when she reported, everyone within the headquarters were told to stay in, not to go out unless guarded, Leov sighed, staring at the outside, wishing someone would come and make things all the more exciting, not one Knight had arrived since she last saw them, Leov, Gibbzy and Gelana had been left to their own devices with only the paladins, healers, guards and magi left to keep them company.

Sliding from the banister, she headed back into the main hall, Gibbzy and Gelana still slept soundly in their beds, she sat and stared at the fire's flames, the light from it setting the room alight, lighting even the darkest of corners, she sighed again, rolling her eyes as a loud clattering of armour came down the stairs, turning slightly she raised an eyebrow at the heavily armoured man as he stopped at the bottom.

“Leov” Came the voice from the armoured man, smiling softly she nodded as she realized it was Kalaa, standing she walked over to him.
“Kalaa, it's about time you showed up, How are you?” Kalaa removed his helmet, his dark black hair falling around his face and down his back as he shook it loose, he smiled slightly and nodded.
“I am well, Sadine sent me your message, I left her at the house..” Leov nodded, frowning slightly.
“Something is going on with her and for whatever reasons, she’s not telling me...” Leov sighed as she eyed Kalaa who was openly trying to hide something from her, she raised her eyebrow, deciding not to press the matter any further, she moved on.
“Tell me Kalaa, why does the Thorn Mistress Anethrax show such interest in you, is there something the order should know?” Kalaa's eyes widened as she mentioned Anethrax, quickly shaking his head.
“I have no idea Leov..” She looked into his eyes realizing he was once again keeping something from her, she frowned, nodding slightly.
“Very well, you are to stay here until further instructed, Understood?” She continued to look at him, he sighed slightly, shaking his head.
“But...” He stopped himself before he could even carry on the sentence midway, she turned away, walking to the chairs where she sat.
“For your own Safety Kalaa, Consider it an order, that you stay here.” Leov looked at him, a look of concern and worry across her face, he nodded and left the room heading for the bar, shaking her head she frowned again, wondering what it was that had the thorns after him and just where Sadine had gotten to off late if Kalaa was having to make excuses for her.

Leov stared into the fire, before walking up to the noticeboard to read from it, she eyed the notes over, a lot of them were old, she'd read a thousand times before since being within the keep, she took a new note from it, scrunching it in her hand she left the room and sat alone, staring at it for what seemed like the whole day, a loud clattering of plate ran past her, transfixed on the note a single tear rolled down her face, unsure of what to do and wanting to leave she scrunched it back into her hands, walking back to the main room she wiped her face and looked down at Calahan who had arrived in what seemed to be a blink of an eye, perhaps it had been longer then she thought.

“Alright Lass?” Calahan smiled up at her.
“Had to send Kalaa away to start the search for your partner in crime” Leov nodded, deciding not to say a word, as she hadn’t wrote up the report for why Kalaa had been in the headquarters in the first place, she took a deep breath and sat with the other's in silence as they spoke of their plans, Calahan left to search for Sadine and gather as much information he could, the other knights that had gathered leaving not long after, Leov took out her small wooden puzzle cube and twisted and turned it in an attempt to solve it, getting lost in what she was doing her mind travelled to the day she had been given it, a meeting with the Commander, because someone had mentioned they were concerned for Leov being around Nirrim, she laughed slightly, and as she caught herself she assumed it was through nerves and upset, she shook her head as she continued to try and figure it out, her mind returning to her speaking of Roike with the commander, she had warned Leov that Roike was disliked, much in the same way Nirrim was, that Roike had his own hidden agenda, and Leov had nodded and agreed to most of it, but pointed out, that to her it made no difference, she knew what he was capable off, what he had done in his past, she had pointed out that if it had not been for Roike she would not be a Knight and that had it not been for Roike she wouldn’t of had a mentor, which to Leov is what he was, aswell as a friend, she smiled, thinking of the way things used to be, suddenly missing Roike she placed the cube away and shook her head, Gibbzy was watching her, smiling softly he came and hugged her close.

“She'll be alright Leov..” He whispered softly to her as a tear rolled down Leov's cheek, she nodded.
“I certainly hope so, I need to speak with the commander...” Leov hugged him back briefly leaving to write a letter to the commander immediately, once done she took in a deep breath of the fresh night air, posting the letter through the slot in the mail box, looking up to the sky she noticed the moon to already be fully risen, heading back inside she went to the top of the stairs and shouted her good night's to Gelana and Gibbzy who both sat reading, turning she headed for her bed and settled down into the sheets once changed, the darkness surrounding her and dragging her into sleep quickly.

Leov woke with a start, staring at the ceiling, her heart raced as she recalled the image's of her friends dyeing as they fought to protect her, shaking her head the images wouldn't leave her be, frowning she sighed and slipped from her bed, slipping into the shower, she let the water cascade over her body as she stood and continued to think on what the nightmare had told her, tears began to slide down her cheeks, covering her face she fell to the floor as the water continued to pour over her as she cried, the water ran cold before she turned the shower off and pulled the towel around her, patting herself dry and wrapping the towel around her hair, she grabbed her moisturiser and began to rub it into her skin gently starting at her ankles she worked her way up to her face, filling the bathroom with a soft strawberry smell, she left the bathroom and headed for the bar where she sat and ate before moving to the main room, smiling softly as she descended the stairs she found Gibbzy fast asleep resting up against a anvil, she pulled her book from the table and sat the other side of the fire to read quietly.

Once a few chapters into her book, although she had not taken a lot of the text in or could even remember the storyline so far, Gibbzy jumped suddenly, looking at Leov worriedly he shuffled towards her.
“Leov...Where am I?” Leov laughed softly as she looked at him raising an eyebrow.
“You know where we are, we've been here a good couple of weeks now..” Gibbzy shook his head.
“I need to know, please Leov, tell me, let me see..” Leov shook her head, frowning as she realized he truly did have no recollection, she placed her hand in his and squeezed it reassuringly.
“I can't Gibbzy, just trust me in knowing your safe, ok?” she smiled softly, deciding it best that he didn’t know where he was in case the demon decided to pry into his mind.
“Then I am no better then a prisoner Leov, please..” He spoke quietly, seemingly worried and afraid, Leov stand firm and shook her head.
“Although a prisoner with great company a prisoner none the less” Gibbzy smiled slightly before it turned into a frown, seeing her shake her head again.
“You say you trust me, you are safe, if you trust me you would believe me, but right now it seems far from it, I will not risk them finding out and the others being harmed Gibbzy, this is not only for your own safety it is for everyone else’s also”. Leov smiled softly and reassuringly at him as he nodded.
“I'm sorry to say this Leov, I know you get tired of hearing it, but you do mean a lot to me, and I don’t mean to harm you..” Leov blushed brightly as he spoke before biting her lip nervously, she nodded and looked into the fire.
“You would only harm me if you did something stupid again, and pain is something I've grown used to as I’ve grown up, so it is nothing new..” Leov shrugged slightly, looking at him as she pushed him playfully, trying to lighten the mood and change the subject.
“But those that love you shouldn’t hurt you, and I have, for that I am sorry..” Leov smiled slightly as she laughed.
“Then my family must not of loved me, since they caused me a whole Azeroth's expanse of pain..” she stared back into the fire before moving to tickle him slightly.
“Thing's happen, and you have nothing to worry about, but I wont let you see outside, ok?” Gibbzy caught her hands as she spoke, nodding lightly he stroked the back of her hand reassuringly as he stared into her eye's.

“Your a good friend Gibbzy, sometimes, I think I’d be lost without you.” Leov giggled, changing the subject she began to talk off the places she'd seen, pulling her hands away from his and shuffling back slightly, she stood and began to walk to the back of the room, heading up the stairs she left for something to eat, followed by Gibbzy they asked for quails legs each, and once sat at the table with their food continued to giggle and talk of their past travels.
