The caves are where it all started. They allowed the first wandering wolves access to the land of Blossom Forest, and afterward housed the monster that had threatened the earliest of inhabitants. The heroes had slain it, yes, but in doing so had also closed off one of the pathways in the caverns, magic blocking one of the many exits to Blossom Forest. But over the years, the original spell has weakened and now the way is clear. What will not only crawl out of the caverns, but erupt from it? The caves now thrum with the ever growing magic wellspring as it spreads out into the land. It is from here that the first vampire of Blossom Forest was corrupted, and it is here that any subsequent vampire will be born. To traverse its paths is dangerous - there is an almost impenetrable darkness, and in that abyss lays many secrets - hidden holes one could fall through, weakened floors, and then of course there is the labyrinthe itself. No one knows what the deeper levels hold - no one has traveled them and survived to tell tales. Not even those who call this place home dares to test their luck by going in deep, deep, deeper. The magic exuding from this place has rearranged the lands - moving packs, changing the terrain. Here the cave looks the same but it is not - it is more dangerous than ever. In addition, outside the mouth of the cave the sacred stones that once stood erect in another place now stand guard. They are colored the most beautiful arrangement of jewel tones, and almost appear to be made of gems themselves, no longer the dull grey they once were. It is within them that all official fights must take place - at the Blican Orlege. Welcome to Drylic Cofa...


Find me in the Darkness

Find Me In The Darkness

^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^

When he had turned to leave, Athene had feared that he would truly disappear for all times into the darkness. That her call would not stop him… but then it did. His departure had been halted and he turned to face her, his bodice soon after hurling itself at hers at top speed. And when he touched her… embraced her… was against her it was as if the darkness disappeared. His perfume washed over her then and she whimpered, inhaling it deeply. His scent both soothed her and exhilarated her, calmed her and made her fearful. He was her future now, for that was the choice that she had thus made. He would be her future now, and the fact that she was not in charge of it herself was frightening. For it had always been her choices that led to her destiny, and it would be such no longer. But it was also freeing in a sense, that he would be there with her, for every step of the way. And the way he folded himself around her, engulfing her… for the first time, Athene knew what it was to feel whole.

I thought you left… I wasn’t sure… you changed your mind. Athene could not possibly find rhymes nor words that could express the thoughts within her head. Instead she merely shook her head and smiled, pressing herself into his form, trying to make them meld together. She wishes that they were physically inseparable so that she would never again be far from his side, as illogical of a thought it is. But still her crazed thoughts continue on. If this moment never ended, it would be perfect. No other would affect their relationship. No other would ever be able to come between them. They would live and die together in this embrace… and that would be alright. That would be just fine.

The ess does not move for long moments, choosing instead to inhale his stench anew, refamiliarizing herself with it until it is all she can smell, the only scent that her brains knows. Her sight is blinded by his pelt, but still she feels the sunlight raining down on her back, reminding her that she found the exit that they once had sought. This was where they had meant to end their adventures together. It was supposed to be a simple, exciting trip through the caverns. Instead, this would be their beginning. This would be the beginning of their life together, no doubt many more adventures would come their way. As perfect as it would be to stay here and just live and die, it was not acceptable. It would be a wasteful way for them to continue on, and their time together, though uninterrupted, would be shorter. They could not stay here. They had to move on.

Slowly, regretfully, she backed away from him, pulling her cranium from his fur and squinted her eyes until her pupils adjusted to the brighter light of the sun.

So this is what we were meant to find,
Instead this place was left behind.
Full circle, indeed, we have finally come
And with you, here with me, I feel my heart thrum.

The staircase is something we now know how to find
But exploration of this place if for another time assigned.
A home, together, for just you and me
Is now what we are meant to find, where we are meant to be.

A smile finally fell upon her lips and she stepped forward, nuzzling against him. She knew that he wanted to find what this place was and where it would lead, but they needed to commit themselves to a land, to secure themselves a den. To find a pack.
