She let it. She took a couple steps towards the rift, pausing as the crystal in her hands pulsed in protest. She ignored it- tucking into the pouch on her belt and reaching through. With a splash and a gasp, she plunged into a cool pond.

Managing to get herself to the shore, she collapsed on the bank and let her eyes flutter shut. Just a quick break, she assured herself, smiling as a warm breeze blew over her. 

Tolsimir was starting to get worried after 2 hours of trying to channel the gem. Normally, he would not feel so drained in trying to channel something, but the mana links felt different for the last hour. Tainted with something dark. The mana was pulling more from him than ever before. Why on earth was it doing this? It feels, unreal……..Tolsimir passed out, still channeling the astrange mana.

Tolsimir awoke to him face first into a fallen beast, blood all over his clothing, sword in hand. Tolsimir starts to panic, confused as to what happened and why he killed the beast. A crew of adventurers came forward, with the bard speaking for them ” You, were different in the distance. You looked like you were in trouble so we came as fast as we could from the distance, but after seeing how you challenged the beast, you looked like you could handle yourself.” The bard said, sheilding himself from possible harm from Tolsimir. “What Happened, everything is lost to me for a while there.” Tolsimir questioned. 

Confused as to why he would ask that, the bard pulled out a lyre and began to tell the tale of what Tolsimir did.

Sword in his hand
raising it high
He challenges the beast.
One Step at a Time
Closer and Closer
With darkness pulsing from his eyes
Wielding cursed power  in dowser

Swinging at the mighty beast
He wont give up
Till it lays slain at his feet
Claws like sharp knives
Eyes shining Red
Breath like the dead

Vengeance Runs Through his veins
Showing this is right
His strikes unholy
Blight shining through blows lowly
Never to be seen again this lifetime

Sword To neck
Body lost to strikes to heck
He walks over and picks it up
Bathing in the blood and juices in slump
It offers small condolences
An Eye for an Eye
A Tooth for a tooth
Things changed for nigh”.

Tolsimir was scared. What happened to me? Why did I attack in that matter? Why don’t I remember it? What would cause me to rev-eh? Tolsimir felt feedback from the gem, from a warmer plane. Alessa? I should follow that to find if she took a wrong turn…..

Thanking the band of adventurers for checking in on him, Tolsimir found a hiding spot, walking in hunt for the thief.

"Jace, look. I don't know what Tolsimir's deal is in regards to Alessa. He never acted this way around me, so I don't know what to tell you," she shrugs.

askbeleren answered:

"I can understand his nervousness- the one he holds dear is so willing to throw her life away from my own. She practically worships the ground I walk on, why is beyond my understanding. 

However, if he is so nervous that someone who has said repeatedly she loves him will leave him at a moment’s notice for someone that while he does respect said woman, but does not quite love her, then he has some psychologic issues that are beyond both Alessa and I’s control- and I recommend her talking to him. It’s not affecting me, though I can see it is annoying her.”

askbeleren:

 

You miss my point. I have no doubt you’re protective and with good reason, she leads a very risky lifestyle. I was just commenting on the fact that your nature is driving away the every thing you’re trying to protect.

Tolsimir groans “I….just want to protect her….But I understand what you are saying, its kind of hard to sneak around with a white knight on your rear. Just for my good, if you get questions about you and Alessa, just dodge them so I don’t try to bark at you for it. Please?”

Jace, its just a matter of defending what you hold dear. You may have something that you have protected since you have accended, but I have defended her since she was a fledgeling when I was just joining the Knighthood I now run. Half of the items she stole when young, I pushed the law back from her. Boros, Orzhov, and Azorious alike, all delayed at the least from what she did earlier in life. Sometimes easy like blocking an alley that cuts travel time to an area by 10 minutes, or sometimes flipping a trade wagon mid- travel that causes more bureaucracy for the guilds to handle immediately than go after a thief. I, don’t know, found her to my liking early, and wanted to defend her for the better. Do you have something, or someone, that you check after, defend, or hold dear, or are you too busy as a guildpact to defend a simple being?
