It's another three weeks and two more messages from Nevio before we--okay, I--concede there's nothing more to be found in Bastion and it's time to move on.
"Where are we gonna go, though?" Aenya asks. "If there are people watchin', us headin' to Rialto so soon after they did is sure to arouse suspicion, but me goin' to Antiva City would be a very, very, very bad idea."
"I'm sure there are small towns at intervals between here and there, right?" I point out. "We can just stay in one of them and travel into the city to poke around."
"We'll stick out like a sore thumb if we stay for more than a couple a' days," she counters. "With the Crows tryin' t' kill us, d'you really think that's a good idea?"
"Since Zev's still alive, and they aren't just kicking out rumors to that effect, I think they want to kill us all together. Prob'ly make one of us watch while they kill the others as an example, then let that one live a few more days before killing them, too."

"I have good news."
I look up from the hand of Wicked Grace I'm actually winning for once, and then lay down my cards at the the spark of hope in Melita's eyes. "So, where's Nevio?"
"On his way to Rialto," she grins, pushing up her sleeves so the rose tattoo on her forearm is clearly visible.
"So they trust you?" Sigrun presses, looking pleased. Whether because of Melita's news or for a distraction from losing I'm not sure.
Melita makes a so-so motion with one hand. "Me, yes. My brother... it is a work in progress, yes?"
"So this Rialto trip is a test of loyalty?" I surmise.
"Yes." She nods, playing with an escaped wisp of hair. "I left on good terms, may have even hinted at being available in the future. To keep them off our backs while Nevio recovered. He, on the other hand, burned every bridge he had with them to pure ash. It will take some doing for them to trust him again. So, for now, small things. Menial tasks, gathering information, the things he was go
More Than WordsHis first conscious thought was to wonder how much he'd had to drink the previous night for his head to be pounding so.More Than Words by FyreQueen89
His second was that the surface upon which he lay was far too comfortable to be his bedroll.
Third was that he absolutely did not recognize the voice hollering at him.
"Ben! You planning on joining us this century, pal?!" The person pounded against what he could only assume was a door. His door?
He knew all of the words in that sentence, but it still was as nonsensical as a toddler's babblings. What in the name of all things good and decent is going on?
"Ben!" The pounding resumed. "C'mon, man, the debate team needs you at your best if we wanna show up the smug bastards from the State U."
"Alright, I'm awake!" he called toward the door, more in hopes of earning silence than because he actually understood what the disembodied voice was saying. When he finally sat up and pried open his sleep-crusted eyes, he couldn't help but st

I feel much better the next morning. Enough that I actually ask Sigrun and Jowan if they wouldn't mind too terribly taking me by that shop they found. I want to talk to this brother-sister pair who verified Alessio's story. It's not that I don't trust Jowan and Sig, it's that they can't agree on whether or not to trust Nevio and Melita. And they both make good point points, so I want to go to the source before I pick a side.
True to his word, Jowan doesn't protest at all when I express my desire to go do something. He just nods acceptance and once Sigrun's up and ready, we head for that part of town. The dwarf looks less than thrilled to be going back.
"I don't like the smell of fish," she explains. "That's one thing I've never gotten used to up here..."
"Can't blame you," I laugh. "It's certainly a rather... strong smell. Not to mention unpleasant."
"You got that right," she agrees. "So let's get this over with as fast as possible."
