PostSubject: Unexpected Arrival   Fri Dec 17, 2010 1:45 pm

Raum walked into the city, his eyes scanning the buildings and bustling activity. He was home for now, and a feeling of relief had washed over his senses. It wasn't over though, as Raum needed to check upon his family, so he hurried past the main square of the city and deep into the suburbs where some of the richest people in Orsus presided. He checked every now and then, making sure Aero was still behind him, unsure if his attention was easily drawn or if by some chance the crowd had taken him. Either way, he never stopped pacing himself towards the towering house now in view. While the sun was shining, it was even difficult to see the top of the building, quite a sight for something in this day and age. He froze for a moment in front of the door, staring straight ahead.

Aero had no difficulty keeping pace with Raum. Raum may know this city, but Aero knew how to move through a crowd. He kept a good distance behind Raum so that it didn't look like he was following him and at the same time allow Aero to scan for any possible threats. They had made it the trip across the country with no indication of the last seven men that were supposed to take Raum out. As they made their way around bustling corner, the smell of smoke entered Aero's nostrils. As he moved a few yards farther he almost bumped right into Raum who was stopped looking on with a frozen stare at the building right in front of them. Flames were licking out the windows on the second story, and smoke was beginning to bunch in the air above the structure. The fire must have just been set. Aero shook Raum, Your place? He asked in a hurried tone. May want to snap out of it, we gotta move. Aero said with some force behind his words. Either they needed to get in there and check for life or they needed to get the hell out of there. Standing out in the open starring would get them killed.

Raum snapped from his daze, looking upward. He knew something was wrong, he could smell it in his nostrils. Intuitions correct, fire was spreading out across the second floor as Raum kicked down the front door with extreme force. He burst into the house and pursued the stairs, wearing a set of mental blinders. Step by step, his heart became heavier as he shouted out for his mother, father and brother. Nothing, Raum could hear nothing come from his lips, the sounds of the fire blazing in his ears. Now, at the top of the stairs, he pushed into all of the rooms, scanning each one of them for a sign of life and moving on to the next. It was one of the first times he cursed having a house this large. Approaching the final door, he ripped the mace from his back in instinct and bust through to the other side.

Displayed in front of him was his entire family, but his mother and father were already dead, their blood spilled upon the dashing carpets and nearby tapestry. His mouth agape in horror he noticed two more alive. The man standing before him was Hoover, and in his hands he grasped Raum's brother with a knife to his throat. Before Hoover could insert the knife into his throat, Raum dashed into Hoover, knocking him over and yelling like a madman.

Aero watched as Raum charged wildly into the burning house. Aero counted to ten and was about to follow when he saw several men split from the crowd and move in towards the house. Aero would have considered they may have been good Samaritans going to help except the men all had weapons drawn. Aero groaned, he was outnumbered by what he could tell was 5 against one. He Sprinted toward the door and turned to face the men moving towards him, drawing his daggers. He slowly stepped back into the smoke of the entrance way pulling his cloak up covering his mouth from the smoke, bating them to follow.

The first came in charging and slashing wildly. Aero was crouched low off to the side and with a quick jab to the mans gut, sent him sprawling across the entry way. The door made a nice little choke point, one Aero planned to abuse as long as possible. The next one came in more cautiously and saw his comrade bleeding out on the ground. He tried to pull his buddy out by his leg only to get a dagger thrown into his throat by Aero. He collapsed still holding the other mans leg. Aero retrieved his dagger and found a different corner to wait for the other three men to enter, or at least waiting until the burning building was no longer safe to be hidden in.

Raum continued beating Hoover like crazy with the face of his shield. All the while Hoover was slashing at Raum, slicing parts of his skin in panic, and it was a good thing that he wasn't a fighter or Raum's own bloodlust would've caused him his death. Finally taking a last bash on Hoover's skull, Raum's vision came into focus. The first thing that intruded in on Raum's vision was the distorted face of Hoover, lying in pools of his and Raum's blood. Behind Raum lay his brother, bleeding profusely and his life being sapped from him every second.

Turning to him, Raum used his left hand to support the back of his head and his right he lay on the knife wound. His brother's lips moved, and a quiet voice protruded. There they sat, brothers, for once in a long time. Raum processed the bits he heard in his mind. He's happy to see me again...Glad I can take over the family's business...Start a new.... Tears were streaking down his face as the last lines faded from his brother. The twinkle in the whites of his eyes disappeared, yet Raum just knelt there in the flames that encroached upon him. A minute passed, and Raum lay his brother down while attempting to lift himself off of the floor. As he made it to the doorway, Raum glanced down at a pair of bloody hands. Now in realization, his strength had immediately diminished leaving him to collapse outside of the room.

Aero's vision was limited by the smoke, as the fire intensified. He was able to detect faint movement through the door and Aero struck, slashing and stabbing Aero effectively decapitated and eviscerated the two men who had come through the door in an a tempt to perhaps catch Aero off guard by sending in two at a time. Aero inspected the two corpses, one had a regular sword and the other carried two daggers, Aero took all three weapons. He peered out the door and saw the last man standing scared, not knowing what to do. Aero threw the sword landing a perfect blow into the mans chest. With the known attackers dispatched he followed up the stairs to find Raum, as supports and other pieces of the structure began to fall around him. He found Raum and quickly observed the scene in the room. Lots of bodies, he took the two near each other to be Raum's parents and the other to be Raum's sibling as the dead man bore a similar resemblance to Raum. The last body was too mutilated to identify, he assumed it to be Hoover.

Aero quickly checked Raum for pulse it was thready, but there. He quickly detached Raum from his armor and weapons and slung him over his shoulder. The entry to the bedroom collapsed as Aero picked up Raum. Aero glanced in to the bedroom and saw the bodies fall into the climbing flames below. Aero felt a pang of guilt that he couldn't preserve the bodies of Raums family. He carried Raum to the stairs when they too collapsed into embers. Shit Aero cursed in his head. He scanned the hall and found a window that overlook a single story building. Aero quickly broke the glass and launched, still holding Raum to the next roof. Landing awkwardly he managed to not drop Raum and was able to set him down for a moment while he planned how to get him down. There was a crack of thunder as a bolt of lighting flew over Aero just as he went to set Raum down, if he hadn't he would've probably been killed.

Aero looked to a nearby roof and saw two mages standing there, hands glowing channeling spells. Aero reacted instinctively tossing both daggers from the man he had killed before at each of the mages. One struck true and the one channeling the lighting fell backwards to his death. The second missed and a fireball was hurled at Aero. It was inches away when *poof* Aero dropped a smoke bomb from his vest and fell flat to the roof. He took Raum and rolled him to the edge of the roof on the opposite side of the mage. He looked down and saw a wagon full of hay, as gently as one could push a bleeding man off a roof Aero did and Raum landed hopefully safely in the wagon below. Unsheathing his own daggers Aero sprinted as fast as he could across the roof and launched into the air. While in the air Aero threw both of his daggers at the mages chest. With a look of awe the mage collapsed to the ground. and Aero landed next to the body before it could hit the ground. He pulled his daggers out and dropped to the street level. He had to get Raum to a doctor...fast.

Light pierced into Raum's darkness, his vision coming into focus. Realizing he was staring at a ceiling he moved an arm upward, its weight quite heavy Raum let it drop on his stomach. Impatient and disgruntled, he used a great amount of his current strength to lift himself from the bed where he lay. What the hell...just happened? pain was coursing through parts of his body, he held his arms up to his face to see the bandages wrapped around them. Head now cranked to view his chest, he noticed even more bandages covering him. Next to Raum sat Aero, holding a bowl full of bloody wraps and ointment while another anonymous woman, who Raum identified as a nurse, was tending to his right leg. Flashes of his fight with Hoover appeared in his head, but he said nothing.

Aero had gotten Raum to the hospital about 48 hours ago, following the fight at Raum's house. In the time Raum had been treated for his life threatening wounds, Aero had gone out and done a little investigating. He had broken into Hoover's mansion and found a safe in his office. A few minutes of picking and the safe opened it's secrets to Aero. Most of the papers in there were documents of sale or ledgers of some kind, but there was one folder that simply had the word Vauxhall written on the top right corner that Aero took. He had read it and immediately returned to the hospital to guard Raum. He had thought after the fight that the fight was over and that Raum had gotten justice for his family...he was wrong. The folder changed everything. This was much bigger then corporate espionage or some grudge. Hoover was simply a puppet in this and Raum was in as much danger as ever.

Aero watched as Raum sat up. Your fine, your in a hospital. Aero said with a light tone. He watched as the nurse finished on Raum's leg and stood to leave. "I'll be back to check on you in a little while." She spoke as she left the room. Aero followed her to the door and locked after she had left. He went back to Raum's bed side. You may want to take a look at this. I got it from a safe in Hoover's home. Aero said holding the folder out to Raum.

Raum snatched the documents from Aero, his frail yet dominating hands ripped open the document with impatience. He was in no mood to deal with his weakened state. Various pictures and statements flowed into Raum's lap, but he had his eye on something more important. Slowly picking up an emblem, he turned it every which way and let his head float back up to Aero Royalty. as he molded the words from his mouth, a snarl twisted into formation. All this time, Hoover had the royalty at his back, and Raum never saw it coming. The amount of manpower he had, the motivation, it was all in the folder Raum gripped tightly in his hand. Anger flooded his system, Raum couldn't contain himself. He began to jerk uncontrollably in an attempt not to destroy anything that wasn't his.

Aero watched as Raum took the news as Aero expected. He was able to hold Raum down with relative ease in his weakened state. Raum relax! Aero said in a strong hushed tone. We have to get out of here. There's no possible way for revenge at this point. We need to fall back and figure out what to do next. Aero had already planned their escape. He had no way of knowing if they were being watched here or not, so he set up a little diversion for whenever Raum woke up. I have a carriage waiting outside to take us back to Telum, we're leaving. Aero figured Telum was the safest place now since it was his home and the people for the most part despised the Royals there. Aero lifted Raum to his feet and walked into the hallway. He tossed three needles into at the ceiling at three different points down the hallway. The needles hit the smoke bombs Aero had hidden in the ceiling at different points down the corridor. Smoke began to fill the hallway and the staff began to panic. With one arm under Raum they left out the back of the hospital amidst the confusion and got into the Carriage. They were off to Telum before anyone even noticed they were gone.
