Gender: Male Age: 22 Location: BC Canada
|Introduction: First off this is not my story I'm just posting it here on behalf of my friend. this is a Roleplay between her and one of her friends. Enjoy.|
Jenna's eyes focused as she walked through the forest, trying to keep her eyes out as she felt her feet touch the ground, her eyes searching for a temple, reports had given her this location, telling her that someone lived out here, someone undesirable, She let her heavy footfall hit the ground, not being quiet about her movements, she didn't care really, eventually the target would find her, or she would find the target. She clenched her whip tightly in her one had. A sigh escaping her lips as she brought her hand to the back of her head, "Damn this is frustrating," she muttered, slowly pushing through a pair of thick bushes, being greeted unexpectedly by a large clearing, a small temple opposed the are she had entered, "And this must be the area...." she glanced about, "Odd... no activity..." she pointed out to herself. Cautiously approaching the building...
Inside the old structure a young witch studied the carving and old scrolls which were still intact. She had found this place in the records of her mage school one year ago, since then she decided it would be best to research the place and hoped to gain more knowledge of magic. After all what better place to keep secret magic text then in an old temple which was once a center for magic? As she read from the old texts she grew more infatuated with them, they spoke of old spells and powerful magic which could bend the laws of the world, ancient primal magic and ritual to summon familiars to fight by the caster’s side. “Oh I’m so lucky!”
The woman warrior slowly started her way up the old temple stairs, her hand releasing the whip so it now was ready to strike, if this was in fact the place that danger was, then she had to be prepared, she broke the threshold into the building, her eyes staring at the structures walls, slowly she started in deeper, she could almost smell the presence of something here. Her attention slowly turned as she entered the main hall, a place where the mages of old would spend there time talking, and researching, and almost as if the gods had decided to give her the gift she saw her target... "Well," she said aloud making sure the woman knew she was there, "I expected catching you to be a lot harder... this is no place for any magic user..." she said simply... "I was hoping for a bit more of a chase..."
The young witch froze then slowly turned around; she swallowed in fear as she gazed upon the female warrior. “Um… I have good reason to be here… I have a mission from the mage guild. I have to study and bring any and all magic scriptures back to the guild…” she said with a nervous smile. Her grip on her stave tightened as she backed up to the wall. ‘Think Ciel think! There has to be a way to escape…’ she thought while looking around the room. True there were some secret passages hidden in the temple but she had yet to find any. “Can we talk about this? Maybe negotiate a deal?” she asked with a cute smile.
Jenna shifted slightly, "Like what?" she teased at the idea "There's nothing you have that I will want lass, You've been ordered to be arrested for trespassing on forbidden ground, there's secrets here that should not be uncovered..." she slowly started closer, "Come here, and I won't have to hurt you..." she responded, though she wasn't aware of what the penalty would be for the girl entering the building, she imagined it would all depend on the secrets the young witch had collected, as regrettable as that could of been, If the woman was here for too long, that could very well mean death...
Looking around frantically she whimpered she hated fighting even though she excelled in combat magic. Obviously she didn’t want to be arrested she had been her for a month and read a great deal of spells and rituals. “I have something back at my guild that you might like… Yeah it is a powerful item that should help with your skills. It’s a ring infused with old magic.” She said as while moving along the wall searching for a hidden door. “Please… I’m not a bad person I’m just… too curious for my own good…” this was looking bad if she didn’t do something fast she would go to jail and then many bad things would happen.
Jenna sighed, "I’m not going to accept a magical artefact, for freedom, " she sighed, "One more chance, before i have to get violent," she prepared her whip, knowing that she would simply attack the woman’s throat, that way her whip would wrap around it, and she could strangle her until she was knocked out, then the woman wouldn't be a problem, "If your not a bad person, then come with me..." she sighed, this was getting frustrating, listening to the girl act as if she was completely innocent, it may of been true, but it was still a forbidden place to go.
She puffed up her cheeks in annoyance. Her cute smile and voice usually worked on everyone, hell her bribes were what got her to this place. Just as Ciel started toward the warrior her foot triggered a pressure plate. Hearing the click she looked down at her feet then she turned pale. Looking up at the woman she smiled nervously. “Um… I’m stuck…” was all she said as she stayed perfectly still.
When the woman gave in, Jenna sighed a bit of relief, her eyes looking at her as she walked towards her, it was going to be a easy job after all. When she stopped Jenna shifted crossing her arms, she rubbed her eyes slightly, "It's a old trap, it undoubtedly doesn't work, get your butt over here..." she replied, half deciding this was another attempt by the girl not to get arrested for her access to the archives...Even if it was real, how many traps could survive the number of years that this place had been abandoned…
“Actually it stills works I accidentally set one off when I first got here. Didn’t you notice the broken pillar when you came inside?” Ciel said as she stayed still. With her knowledge of old protection devices and magical traps she did not want to risk the chance of being wrong. “Um… can you move that broken stone slab over here? I’d rather not risk getting killed by the large ominous object hanging above me.” she said softly, she was scared and didn’t want to shift even and inch to cast a spell. “Help me and I swear on my mother’s life that I’ll let you arrest me and take me to the authorities…”
Jenna's eyes shifted back towards the hallway, thinking back to the pillar, she shifted her glance back, well if she was right this was terrific, her eyes glancing at the broken stone slab, before glancing back at the girl, at least she was promising now... she slowly started towards the slab. "Fine...." she said simply. Her eyes watching the girl, waiting for a spell to exhaust, she prepared her whip if she used the opportunity to run through the front door, if she did anything that would cause her aid in running, "If your casting a spell, tell me now..." she muttered... standing perfectly still, beside the alter like requested, watching the girl...
“If I was you would see me chanting something or moving my stave, if you didn’t know before these old traps are tricky just a slight shift in pressure and bam! The trap gets set off. I’m not that bold!” Ciel said with a frown. What was with this woman doubting everything she said and being such a harsh person. Of course most of what she said were lies save for the traps, that was true. ‘Once I get the chance I’ll bind you with a spell and run away.’ She thought.
Jenna nodded, "I suppose your right," she relaxed visibly, she had to admit, she wasn't sure how careful she had to be around a mage, especially one that had been studying in this temple, there had to be a reason it was off limits after all... "Do what your gonna do, If you need any help I'm right here..." she said, making sure the girl knew despite that she was collecting her, she wasn't about to let her die... by the laws she could, she could return to the kingdom and say she attacked, but that wasn't how she was...
“I need a counter weight to hold this plate long enough for me to get out of the way. Anything heavy will do.” She said as she scanned the floor for something that could hold the plate down. ‘Why did this have to happen to me?’ she asked in thought. “That right there will do! That big piece of stone can to push it over to me?” she asked softly while nodding her head toward the object in question.
Jenna nodded slowly, moving over to the object in question...she glanced at the girl, looking at her whip, she almost hesitated now, not wanting to give up the only means of defence, however slowly she put it on top of the rock, before shocking the rock, the woman wasn't going to be a problem, she shoved roughly grunting with each push feeling the rock give way, slowly grinding it across the floor, "H...Here it comes..." she said aloud, hoping the woman was ready...
As the stone reached the plate Ciel lifted her foot and leapt into the woman, pushing her away from the trap. When nothing happened she sighed laughed a bit. “Guess it was broken after all.” She said with a smile, but she was wrong the trap had a time delay which was now counting down. Click, click, and click. If they did not hurry and leave the center of the room they would experience what the trap had in store for them.
Jenna's hands wrapped around the girl, supporting her so she could swing her out of the way of any danger, but when nothing happened she glanced around... the woman’s voice followed, then the clicking... "where not out of that trap yet...." she pointed out, letting Ciel go she moved past her, letting her hand fall to Ciel's hand and tugging her towards the exit, intent on getting the both of them out of the building before something insane happened to them, "Common!" she announced loudly...
The sudden pull almost made her drop her stave. “I’m coming!” Ciel said as she tried to keep pace with the warrior. The clicking now known to her as well made her very uneasy, nothing worse then a time delayed trap. “Why did I step on the worst trap from the forgotten age?!” she whined. As they neared the exit she prayed to the gods and the ancestors. “Please don’t blow up, please don’t blow up…” Then she remembered something important, a book of all her findings on the temple and its scriptures. “Vikus mundo shavala!” A dim light burst from her stave and raced back to the book she had made. Within moments it was in flying at her side, connected to her stave by a small wire of light.
Jenna's urgency was obvious as they moved through the halls, though her attention was turned as she heard the mage casting a spell, She didn't have time to stop her however, when the book floated over to her staff she narrowed her gaze, "Is that really important right now?" she said in mid stride, leading the other woman her way through the temple, she wasn't about to stop, turn around or do anything until she had gotten the two of them out of there... the longer she heard the delay, the creepier it felt, knowing that it had to be something magical, something powering up for some reason.... something....
“If this place blows up then yes it very much is! If not then I’ll donate it to chantry or who ever hold sway over the mage guilds.” Ciel said as she started to become annoyed with the clicking. That and this running to the entrance seemed to rather longer then she remembered it to be. “For the love of the gods enough with the damn clicking!” Unfortunately her, the clicking continued but somewhat faster now. Time was running out. “Warrior do you trust me?”
Jenna's eyes closed, running as they girl talked, she glanced at the woman however when she asked for her trust, it pinged her roughly with a thought, did she trust this mage, she looked like someone who she could trust, but her attitude sometimes shifted... but could she trust her, but the situation didn't really call for a betrayal, if she was about to trick her, this would be the worst time to do it, so the answer, given the situation escaped her lips, "Yeah, Sure, Waddya have in mind?" She looked at the woman curiosity biting her face...
Ciel smiled a mischievous smile then locked her arm with Jenna’s. “Mage escape technique number 3.” She said with a wink then raised her stave and pointed it ahead of them. “Jackin lorvis wake no mai sou!” With a burst of purple light a swirling vortex opened several yards ahead of them, as the center opened up the outside of the temple came into view. “Mage portals! Much quicker then running out of a temple.” She said with a proud smile “Just run into it and we will appear outside the temple.” She added quickly.
Jenna couldn't help but wince, seeing her starting to cast a spell, she hesitated, but the words of assurance was enough for Jenna, she nodded slightly, forcing Ciel through the portal first, then following in quickly behind, just to make sure the woman wouldn't be at risk, Jenna was sure she could of survived some of whatever it was, Ciel however didn't seem like someone who got into many fights. Her stomach did a back flip as she went through the portal, gasping slightly. she turned to look at the temple, "Good job Mage..." she glanced at the woman, "Best use of magic I've seen in years..." she said honestly...
“I know I’m brilliant, that’s why I’m the best mage in the guild when it comes to rushed situations.” She said with proud pose. “Oh right here I’m sure you want this book. Can’t let a mage keep the secrets of the ancients’ right?” she said while holding the book out to the warrior woman. ‘Come on take the bait.’ She thought with eagerness. ‘Who said spells need to be spoken?’ she smiled softly and closed the portal.
Jenna shifted slightly, crossing her arms with a approving smirk, "Best mage eh?" she sighed running her fingers through her hair, Before looking back at the temple, trying to wait for some sort of sound to radiate from it, something to tell her the trap had gone off, or for the temple to literally collapse in on itself, whatever was about to happen it had to happen soon, but slowly her attention turned back to the young mage "Ya know, I was wrong about you..." she said as the woman handed her the book, grasping its rough cover.
Ciel bowed her head then smile. “Yes you were… forgive me but I have no choice…” she said softly then suddenly struck her stave into Jenna’s gut. “Veltamos!” Just as the spell built up its power the ground shook and the temple’s highest point broke open releasing a dark energy which cancelled out Ciel’s magic. “What the hell!?” This darkness shot up into the sky and blasted outward in all directions.
Jenna's smile faded as she asked for forgiveness, before feeling her gut getting hit by the solid staff, letting out a surprised gasp, hearing those magic words she almost expected herself to explode, something to happen to her, but when the temple erupted, it gave Jenna the moments to step back holding her gut, her eyes glancing lazily at the darkness that now engulfed the area, before expelling all around, Jenna shook her head, whatever caused that was gone now.... instead she glared at Ciel, nothing had happened, maybe it had ruined the spell, Jenna leaped forward, grasping the staff she held with both hands, trying to force the girl onto the ground before the woman tried to attack her again... using the staff to try to pin the woman...
As she falls to the ground she closes her eyes whimpers. “I’m sorry… but I have to take that book to the guild… I’m sorry…” she said as tears weld up in her eyes. Ciel knew that there would be no forgiveness here, nor would this warrior just her ever again. To make it worse she was responsible for releasing gods know back into the world. Everything was going so wrong.
Jenna shifted grasping the book roughly taking it from the woman's hands, pushing the staff roughly against the woman, "What’s so important about this book that you think you would do that to me..." her eyes stared down at her... before examining the book, "No matter how much you say your sorry, you know I won't accept that now" She said, roughly standing attempting to yank the staff out of her hands, holding it now "Get up...." She held the staff like a weapon, "Slowly....Witch..." she had obviously lost any sense of diplomacy now... for obvious reasons....
Ciel was about to protest but thought better of it, without her stave her spells wouldn’t be as accurate not as potent. “That book contains the knowledge not only of the mages from the lost ages but also a lost bloodline. I have to find out who the descendants are before something bad happens to them…” she said softly while slowly getting to her feet and hanging her head in shame. “I care little for the spells in that book. And now with the temple in an even worse state I doubt I’ll be able to come this close to it. Now there will be guards and patrols…”
She scoffed in response, "Yea, and that whole going into a forbidden territory, and let us not forget attacking a captain of the kings throne..." she stated, "If your lucky you'll get to keep your head I think," she threatened, "No spit out what this is all supposed to mean," she demanded. "And don't try anything smart, or your going to feel a 'ell of a lot worst..." her hand clenching the book pointing the staff at Ciel.
Sighing heavily she dropped to her knees and looked up at this knight. “Back in the lost age it was speculated that certain bloodline held the power to control life itself, they could bring people back from the dead and even delay death’s hand. But that was only because they were a family of powerful mages. Their true power was in summoning the mightiest of creatures. Dragons, griffons, and even the Great Aasimar guardians. They were the great beast tamers of the lost age.” She said softly as her gaze shifted to the temple. “That was once a place they used for the summoning of such creatures. I was told to research this bloodline and trace it to the known nobles of this age. But I was not alone in this, someone else searches for the last of this family. For reasons I’m unaware.”
Jenna shifted slightly waving the book in her hand, before sticking it in her armour, Her lips pursed slightly as she looked at the temple, "and you want to bring this book back too........ the mages?" she repeated, "The crown's going to have a good talking with the mage guild about this one," she turned slowly, "Is that all then?" she asked curiously...
Ciel bit her lip and looked away. “Not really… there is one small issue… I was not able to translate all the writings in the temple so I merely used a copy spell and moved the scriptures onto the book’s blank pages. You interrupted me when I was about to get the name of the lost family.” She said softly while avoiding Jenna’s gaze. “If you escort me back inside I can find it though.”
Jenna shifted, Her eyes glancing at the woman for a long moment, "...." she glanced at the temple, her arms relaxing, she was forced to debate, her mission was to simply collect the girl, but it just got a tad bit more complicated... she however couldn't simply walk away from critical information, if this was true.... "Fine...." she ran her fingers through her hair, her body turning and walking towards the temple, "lets get your name...." she said unhappily, tossing her staff at her, "I'm watching you," She muttered taking out a knife from her boot, "If you do anything like that again, your going to the king in a casket...." she sighed....
Catching her stave she smiled, but the threat made that disappear instantly. “I know I promise on my life that I will not attack you.” Ciel said as she got to her feet and ran toward the temple. As she neared the stone steps however she was thrown backwards. “Ouch!” she yelled out landing roughly four feet away. “What was that? There should not be a barrier around the temple.” As she looked at the temple she frowned and crossed her arms. “I demand and reason for this!” Oddly enough ancient texts appeared in front of Ciel, after she read them she they disappeared.
Jenna shifted to look at the woman behind her, raising a eyebrow, she started her way back, "Are you alright?" she said cautiously, "What’s wrong?" she said not feeling the barrier what so ever, she was no mage, so she wasn't aware of the full extent of some powers, she crossed her arms, watching the arcane text's, odd, she ran her fingers through her hair, "What’s this all about?" she asked Ciel...
“I’m not allowed to enter now. Something about mages being corrupt.” She said puffing up her cheeks and frowning. “I’m not corrupt I’m just different.” She stated in annoyance. So many things have gone wrong that she finally decides to give up. “Arrest me, there is nothing else for me to do here.” She says holding out her stave allowing Jenna to take it away.
Jenna closed her eyes, shifting slightly looking up the ways, "I could collect your name..." she sighed, she after all still had the book, finding the name might be extremely easy, or difficult, but it was worth a try... "Just tell me what I'm looking for.... and be here when i get back... I'm trusting you one last time....If you betray me this time.." she let the threat linger so she cold finish it in her mind...
“It’s a crest of sorts it had as a dragon’s wings holding a sword and staff.” She said looking up at Jenna. “I promise I won’t leave this spot no matter what.” She swore this with her heart and is bound by such. “But hurry, something comes this way and it feels strong and dark.” She added while getting to her feet and facing the other way.
She turned slightly, before looking over her shoulder, "Then hide... Come when i call..." she ordered, "Use whatever spells will help you do this..." she started up the stairs, it wouldn't be long tell she was jogging down the halls to that same room, her lips pursed as she turned the corner for the third time, now glancing into the room, her hand pulling out the book from her armour, slowly entering the room, her eyes darting around trying to find out what the spell could of done inside.... her hands slowly grasping her whip, attaching it to her belt. Jenna's eyes glanced about. searching for the symbol, walking slowly to the alter-slab once more, she rest Ciel's book on it.
Once Jenna entered the temple Ciel raised her stave and smiled softly. “Hiding would not help me here warrior.” she whispered before chanting a spell. The more she spoke the more powerful the spell became, with a burst of green light a glyph appeared on the earth and grew to cover a vast area of the clearing. With a downward swipe of her stave the glyph became complete and seeped into the earth. “One down six to go now.” She muttered. But would she make it in time? With the dark aura now visible over the trees her time was running out and fast.
“And done…” with sweat dripping from her brow she stares at the army of shadows which march toward her.
“So you finally show up? Well since it would be pointless to run away I might as well face you with everything I’ve got.” With a smirk she raises her stave then looks back at the temple. “If you make it in time to help then I’ll pledge my life to serve you, should you not then I give this gift to you.” Taking a deep breath she cuts a ten point star in the air over her head. “Servictus nao void de clef valacus Kings knight guardus skor vien! Aprentis Vei noicu shala han krus INVICTUS~!” As her words echo over the clearing A pillar of light races down from the heavens encasing Ciel in golden light. “Should I perish here gift my power to the Kings knight with the temple, allow my life to protect hers. I accept my fate no matter the out come. Bless her now gods of old here my plea INVICTUS~!”
With a smile upon her face she rushes toward the darkness as her stave changes form into a weapon neither sword nor staff but a fusion of both. Her clothing changes from robes to armour. “HAAAAH!”
Jenna's lips pursed, as she searched like a mad-woman through the information she had in front of her, she rubbed her forehead, "Damn this magic business, why can't they just keep a family tree," she muttered to herself pushing some rubble to the side, "AHA!" she exclaimed, seeing the damaged marking that Ciel had commented on, she flipped the journal open, her hands patting her sides, "Pencil...." she muttered, before bending over and picking up a chunk of dark rock, charcoal from a fire some time ago. She started to quickly sketch the item, though she didn't know how accurate she had to be, her sketching would be rough, but bore as much detail as she could.
Slowly she looked at the book, her eyes glancing up, something felt off... her eyes shifted back to the book, "Close enough..." she was no artist.... she closed the book, quickly dashing towards the exit, her eyes glancing down the long hallway towards the entrance, why did it always seem longer when she was heading this way? She dashed now, her whole body moving as swift as she could, she could feel sweat beading from her head, as she prepared her whip once more, slowly she took her dagger, and a snapped off the handle, as she ran, stuffing the handle in her armour, she took out a attachment, quickly attaching it to the end of her whip, prepared to fight, if this darkness was as bad as that mage made it seem, she would need it...
Jenna rounded the corner, her eyes staring into the abyss of darkness; she clenched her whip tightly, so.... this was it...
Although she had cut down many an enemy they were far from dwindling. Panting heavily she uses her weapon to steady herself. Was this the end was this to be her fate to die here? Well if it was at least she would fight until the bitter end. Now that this army of shadows was in the correct places she raised her weapon only to quickly thrust it into the earth. “Glyph Seal Activate!” Blinding light washed over the clearing, engulfing every shadow the purging it. But not everything was extinguished so easily, the stronger shades remained mostly unharmed. With all magic everything has a price, while some spells leave the caster in a weakened state other can kill them. Falling to her knees Ciel stares at the remaining creatures, only twenty left but to sustain only minor injuries after such a spell is terrifying. “Fine then… Let’s see how you stand up to this…” Forcing herself to stand she takes a deep breath. ‘I’m ready to pay any price for this last spell.’ Looking over her shoulder she spots Jenna atop the stone steps, with a weak smile she turns to face the enemy. “ANCIENT RUNE SEAL ACTIVATE!!!”
Light bursts from her body devouring her armour and her weapon, as the spell takes this and perhaps more the earth shakes and shifts. Slowly a dark void opens up beneath the shades; thousands of hands reach out and snare them, pulling them down into the depths of the void space. However one manages to escape and makes its way toward Ciel, who has now collapsed to the ground.
The world had changed it would look like a battlefield now, and the mage she had come to arrest, now was a warrior of sorts, a magical warrior, Jenna wasn't sure what to think, should she of been proud? angry? or worried. She wasn't worried about the girl as much, her eyes glanced at the beasts as the woman did one powerful attack, it was amazing, to say the least, as the woman fell from the stars as it would seem, she landed on the ground, a single beast survived...
Jenna's eyes narrowed, worry flushing her mind as she dashed down the stairs, "I DONT THINK SO," she roared in complaint, her feet quickly dashing as the whip fell from her hands gripping its handle tightly, she spun, the whip cracked its dagger point at the creatures chest, striking it roughly, Jenna started to focus, slashing the attack at its shoulder, trying to cause it to feel the sharp pains, before sending another quick two, one at each eye, She would weaken the foe. Then she would finish him, each attack went at each limb, trying to stop it, her body spinning like a death trap, before trying to send one final one at is throat.
Ciel although awake could barely move due the strain she placed on her body. She watched as the King’s knight battled the final shade, and was giving it a good beating. Slowly she raised her hand toward the warrior and with the last once of strength she had left cast one last spell. “Raito…” a small burst of light shot out toward Jenna striking her weapon arm only to race to the bladed tip of her whip giving it a boost in power. Then Ciel’s world grew dark.
Jenna's eyes focused on the beast, how each attack stuck, how each swing moved, she danced lightly around her target, the beast backing away from each strike, before turning towards her, and letting out a roar of anger, this time it swung at her, Jenna's body shifted back, feeling the ground get slammed, just where she was standing, She wrapped her whip around its arm, that was now on the ground, grabbing the loose area of the whip, yanking it as hard as she could causing him to fall flat on his stomach. Her eyes light up as she flicked her whip, it snapping back to her hand, but still the beast stood up, "Why don't you fall?" she asked simply, furrowing her eyes....
Jenna's eyes shifted towards the woman, just in time to feel, to see the burst of light hit her weapon, the tip glowed with white energy, "Good call," She smiled softly, approvingly, "Round 2?" she looked at the shade, this time running at it, The beast itself ran at her, He swung his powerful arms trying to wrap his arms around her, she however ducked low, sliding beneath it, her fingers clasping the edge of her dagger tip, sending a knife into its ankle, causing it to collapse. Her eyes shifted, as she kicked up from her position, her feet dashing as she climbed up its back, kicking his head, sending him to the ground, as he fell however, she swung with the whip once more, wrapping the leather around the beasts neck, as she pulled, kicking off his body in the opposite direction, forcing it back to the same kneeling position, flicking her wrist she released the whip from its neck. she once again dashed, this time, she clenched her whip, in both hands, holding it like a jump rope, she leaped at his neck, her arm catching his neck, her body moving around him, feeling her body spin around him effortlessly wrapping the cord around its neck, until she was once again piggy backing him, this final time, she raised the dagger end, driving it deep into his skull... the white light biting through the shadows....
The shadows faded, and Jenna's panted breath did not stop, her eyes traveling up to Ciel... the mage... slowly she stood up, walking over to the woman... kneeling beside her, she checked her pulse, "Hey girl..... wake up..." she whispered, patting her cheek... it was now obvious, her concerns where very real... "Damnit...."
In the darkness she heard a voice calling her. ‘Who is this… why do you call me…?’ a dim light burned through the dark with it the voice became louder. Was her soul still within her body? If so then this voice must be… ‘Alright… I understand… you talk tough but you’re a soft heart…’
As her eyes opened she looked up at familiar face. “You talk tough but… you’re a soft hearted person…” she whispered as a smile crossed her lips. Groaning slightly she felt sore and rather cold. “Either we are both dead or we killed the shades…” she said running her hand over her sore chest. “Eh?” lifting her head she looked down at her body, her naked body. “EH?!!!” Curling up she glared at the warrior. “What the hell?! Why am I naked?!”
Jenna shifted, "The shades are dead, thanks to you," she ignored the fact the woman was naked, she had imagined this was the cost of her powers, her eyes glancing at the girl, "I...I didn't do anything..." she blinked, realising how it looked for her standing above the naked woman, watching her glare, "You cast a spell, The next think i knew you where naked...." She blinked, before reaching into her armour, grasping the book and forcing it towards the woman... "Here...." she said, partially distracting the girl... "You have a job to do...." she shifted slightly, her voice almost that of someone asking for a apology...
“I don’t suppose you have some spare clothing in there?” she asked taking the book and looking through the pages for the crest. As she searched her expression turned serious, determined. “Ah there you are. Hm… kind rough but it will have to do.” Ciel muttered as she flipped back to the previous page. Her lips were moving yet no sound escaped as she read the page. “I see… so that’s what this is…” She looked up from the book at last and stared at the warrior. “There is something I must do before we take this book to the King and councils.”
Jenna nodded slightly, slowly giving a sharp whistle, in moments a horse showed up, she had left it a distance away, it carried all her supplies, including clothes... Jenna shifted to look at the girl as she looked through the book, "I don't have much in the way of mages robes..." she said pulling out some clothes, tossing them to her, slowly she went about taking all her own belongings off the horse, as if she was about to set up camp, pulling off bags, checking them, before putting a few back on. When she spoke about the king and councils, she smiled softly, shaking her head, "It's undoubtedly faster...." she looked at the horse, "If you take my horse," she looked at the girl, "If what that was, was a taste of what your trying to prevent, it's not my area to arrest you ma'am." she bowed slightly... "Have the horse,"
Closing the book she got to her feet only to fall back down. “Ouch… I guess I can’t stand yet…” she said as she put the clothes on. ‘I guess those spells drained my power and energy more then I thought…’ She thought then looked at the warrior and smiled sweetly. “Um… I know this is asking a lot but… would you be willing to… responsibility for me?” she asked softly. ‘Oh she is going to refuse and bitch about isn’t she…’ she said in thought.
Jenna's eyes shifted, making sure the woman didn't fall, she wasn't heartless after all, "you gonna be ok?" she asked her eyes watching the woman, ready to give support where ever, When the woman asked her to aid her, Jenna's eyes stared at her for a long moment, before nodding slightly, "Yeah, I'll help you..." she shifted slightly, offering support towards the horse, something that could help her rest while they moved, Jenna would walk and guide the horse, "As long as you don't try to blast my guts out again..." she shifted looking at the woman, a smile hinting at her lips as she teased... She slightly looked forward, "I'm Jenna, by the way...." she gave her name, something that they would need from each other she imagined if they were going to be allies....
“Thank you…” she said as softly. “I’m Ciel.” She smiled as she climbed into the saddle and sighed. “Remind me not to use that spell ever again… it might kill me the next time…” she muttered as she leaned forward and closed her eyes.
