Moderator: Xeric Mues
"Xavior, your guest have arrived." Announced his cousin Tybalt.
"I'll be there in a moment, offer them refreshments."Xeric replied with a growl. He never liked being called by his proper name. Tybalt knew this and took advantage of it by irritating Xeric.
With his usual massive stride, Xeric walks along the path from the practice yard to his open-sun room. His right hand reaches forward to open the door just as he reaches it. He pulls the door open and steps in, pulling the door closed behind him.
Xeric quickly grabbed one of the towels he had left out earlier. Starting with his face, he wiped the sweat off his body as best as he could. With his right hand he unfasten his sword belt and grabbing the scabbard with his left, he lays Ivan, the scabbard, and the belt down on his weapons table to his left. Pulling his sleeveless black-spandex shirt over his head he walks into the kitchen.
"Their in the den waiting for you."Tybalt whispers. He was furiously preparing drinks, hopefully for the guest, Xeric though to himself.
"I want you to join us for this meeting, Tybalt." Xeric replied as he continued into the den.
"Master Kusaka is Master Mues available?" Asked Edward.
"He's in a meeting, may I be of some assistance?" Replied Tybalt.
Edward held the letter in his left hand out to Tybalt."I bring a letter from the Lady Jade Lumanes Mues, could you see that he gets it?" Asked Edward. Without a reply, Edward turned away from Tybalt and left the Mues Manor.
"Goodnight cousin." Said Tybalt as he noticed Xeric's direction.
A sharp crack sounded from the doorframe as Xeric's left boot slammed into the door. It flew open and slammed into the wall with a dull 'thud'. Biting back tears, Xeric stepped into his bed cambers. He silently gets undressed, holding the effects of the meeting at bay. The letter from jade, however, is cast into the fireplace unopened. Turning from the fireplace he walks across the room in his small cloths. A simple smile crosses his face as he crawls onto the overly large canopy-bed, Jade had it made especially for them. Sleep took him as soon as his head had settled on the pillow.
Dust swirled all around him. Covering his eye Xeric ran for cover. Slamming into something headfirst caused the large Russian to stumble then finally fall. Rolling to his left side, he pushed himself up to his bottom with his right hand. No sooner than when he sat up, he felt the ground beneath him begin to spin. Falling back over he placed both of his hands' palms down on the ground. When he had doubled up to vomit from the spin, he felt his shoulder tare open and something crawl out of each of them.
Xeric half screamed as he jumped out of his bed. He landed on the balls of his feet, both hands around his maid. She was off the floor in his grip.
"Morn'in Xeric, How ar'ya feel'in?" She said calmly. Her face showed no sign of startlement at being manhandled by the Russian.
A few deep breaths and reason returned to him "It was only a dream, only a dream." He half chuckled.
"Stop, not another word of it master Muse, not before breakfast!" McKina said firmly. Her accent always did vanish when she meant something.
Setting the tray on his bed side table, with a smile she said "Now Xeric, I've brough'cha eggs, 'am, toast,'an bacon. "Eat't all." She turned and walked out of the room silently, leaving the door open behind her so she could 'hear him if he called' or that was what she claimed.
Xeric quickly got dressed and left the house, before McKina did come back and check on him. Out the den and around the north side of the manor was the only safe path he could find.
Galloping away from the manor, Xeric ignored the growl in his stomach. He rode away from pain and loneliness. He rode away from the manor.
Xeric climbed down from Diamonddust at a small spring, filling his water bottle he noticed the sun begging to set. He had spent most of the day riding and enjoying the woods, nobody bothering him, no pain.
"Who's there?" Called Xeric as he spun around. Leaves rattling and twigs snapping had alerted the Russian to another's presence. After a quick look around he climbed back on Diamonddust. The spooked horse reared up, throwing Xeric off. With white flashes in his eyes, Xeric couldn't make out the face over him or what he was hit with.
