Surprizes of the Heart (Private)

TS: 36th of Ponutis

Carnasch was down in the kitchen, his large muscular body pecariously perched on one of the stools that was often against one of the counters. He had been up all night perfecting his new form, and now he was starving. Usually shapeshifting didn't give him an appetite, but when you started adding new appendages, and it was relatively permanent, it made him hungry.

So, with that in mind, the Vagaran was downstairs in the kitchen making breakfast. Or rather, he had made breakfast, and was now eating it. There was just one small issue. Should anyone come down, Carnasch didn't look at all like himself. He wasn't wearing much in the way of clothes either, just a pair of old pants with a hole in the back end.

That hole was filled with a tail though, and he wasn't wearing a shirt because of the large wings sprouting from his back. Also, he was scaly and green, with horns and a snout. In fact, you could say he looked like a Dracon. Only he was Carnasch sized and a dark forest green color, rather than black like his freind Dante.

Either way, it was completely understandable if someone were to walk in and misunderstand. It wasn't very often a strange new Dracon shows up half naked and starts eating your food.

The first sound to reach the now large green dracon's new ears was the sound of small girls screaming. Nelly, a little green draconess herself, was currently wide mouthed hollering in terror as her sister, a small human red haired girl named Nikki, was also screaming. Nikki was screaming because there was a stranger half naked in her kitchen, Nelly was screaming because there was a half naked dracon who she couldn't sense with the call and was a stranger in her kitchen. Very similar screams although the trained ear could detect the subtle nuances of difference.

This screaming was the apparent cause of the now large foot fall sounds of other occupants of the house bounding down the steps. The first not screaming little girl to enter the room was an eshlahier with one black and one white large feathered wing. Suddenly a spear like weapon appeared glowing in his hand and after barely a moment his eyes glowed and energy flew from the beings handDante accessed clara with his matare of arcana. He then caused arcalysis to occur by uniting enough of his vis for an adept spell with the ara around him and then channeling it to the plane of life. He combined the energies and united them back in himself as mana. With the mana he cast the imparted spell invoke penitence upon the 'stranger' so that he would be paralyzed..

The next being right on his heels was a beautiful elven lass in a pink night gown. She had a longbow out and was currently pointing it at the stranger's back near where the heart was located. She positioned herself between the children and the stranger only off the the left of the eshlahier. Her hair was ruffled and she looked like she had just awoken. The next three were Vysstichi youths, of about 50 ordinations old. The first was a female wearing light purple pajamas. She had a well used looking dagger out, although it did appear quite sharp, and by the way she was holding it she was familiar with its use. The next was a large Vysstichi male, well large for the race. He was well muscled and although he had on grey loose pajama bottoms, he was shirtless. He was wielding a short sword, but as one would expect a dagger to be wielded. The last was a gangly youth with formal nice looking blue pajamas. He was in a Zinn'ka stance normally used by katta, except his hands were in fists rather than claws out.

The five of them all had expressions of outrage to varying degrees. The eshlahier's expression was also mingled with a cold lingering death for the intruder, the light elf's was a quick hot death, and the vysstichi's were that of a varying mixture of the two. Assuming the Eshlahier's spell worked a look of confusion would grow on his face before he looked at the two no longer screaming girls and the Vysstichi youths, "Take your sisters back upstairs now!"

The youths, never taking their eyes from the stranger, would oblige the eshlahier and escort the little girls from the kitchen.

Once they were gone the Eshlahier would ask, "What do you make of it Kala? I know it is arcana made with druidism, but why would any druid create a dracon and send them like this into my home?"

The arrow never wavering Kala replied, "Well if it is an assassin it isn't very bright. Why raid the kitchen before you finished your objective. Why don't you tie it up so that you can remove your spell from it and we can ask it questions?"

The eshlahier nodded then headed to the kitchen door. He went outside for about fifteen seconds and came back with a long section of strong looking rope which it then proceeded to tie the creature's wrists, ankles, tail, and wings with, keeping it in place. Suddenly the spell would leave the dracon and conversation would ensue, "Who are you?"

oocI am operating under the assumption that Dante asked Niven to protect Chariras

Carnasch jumped nearly a mile in the air when the two girls started screaming, and he came up out of his seat, new wings flapping and crashing about, and his food dropped all over the table. He was about to try and talk to the girls, and he managed to get out, "Nelly! Nikki! Its me! Its Unc.." and then Dante in one of his elven forms came bounding down the stairs.

Carnasch wasn't armed at this time, and he knew Dante could be very dangerous with his Matare, not to mention the magic he had available with it. This thought occured to him, and his eyes widened for a second before he dove over the island in the middle of the kitchen in the direction of the door. Sadly, Carnasch's new form was bigger than he was used too, and he still hadn't worked out using his wings and his arms completely seperatly, so he jumped and got tangled up and fell to the other side of the counter, then Dante's spell hit.

After that, the poor fellow was just stuck. He couldn't move, despite the fact that his mind screamed in the back of his head to do so. Dante went to get the rope, and mean while Carnasch was getting his brain back together. He had to do it the old fashioned way, but he meditated and gained clara before Dante got back.

After that, he gathered up enough Vis to do a decent Dispel, and turned it into Mana as quick as he could. The over all effect was that he finished Dispelling Dante's Penitnce spell about half way through being tied up, mostly because he just shredded the offending spell and he was familiar with Dante's Thaumaturgy, and started talking to to his freind in a semi-angry voice. "Dante! You idiot, it's me Carnasch!"

"Untie me you scown! Geez, I know I look different, but you usually try to talk to things before you kill them! I'm the one that always just kills 'em!" He sounded a little indignant, but he started to untie himself and get up as best he could, and never made a move to hurt Dante or any of the others.

Dante was still in clara examining the strange creature before him, so when it started to power up a dispel he smacked it over the back of the head with the flat of his matare. Of course Carnasch could be pretty thick headed so perhaps it wouldn't have done anything, but he would have kept it up for as long as the creature tried to go into clara.

Once the knots were tied, securely bounding the creature he dragged the infernally heavy being into another room so that the children could get some breakfast and a semblance of normal life could resume. The creature was taken to the closest room on the ground floor, presumably the dining room, and Dante then drew a circle of arcana about it by drawing his vis and collecting the ara about him then channeling it to the plane of life and bringing back the essence from there as mana. He drew the circle so as to block anything but light, sound, air and Dante with his possessions from the circle.

Dante then sat and waited for his spell to wear off as he examined the creature in question in clara. He pondered dispelling the huge amount of arcana that was on the thing, but he wasn't sure what that would do to it so let it be for now. He wanted answers first. As Dante sensed the spell starting to fade he stated, "You are lucky I'm a follower of Diana. It means that you might survive this encounter. Stop trying to access clara mage or I'll give you a more permanent injury than just a knot on the head. Answer my questions quickly and honestly and you might survive to be put into the goal understand?"

oocI never left clara mate. I don't think Dante would have continued tying you up if you showed yourself to be a mage until he had that little surprise dealt with.

OOC He entered clara while you were getting the rope, and was already out of it again and Dispelling by the time you came back.

Carnasch, since he was now being beaten while trying to Dispell Dante's magic, stopped what he was doing, and in big glowing letters that hung in the air wrote,
"I AM CARNASCH!". Wether or not the two believed him, Carnasch began Dispelling Dante's spell again, with those giant arcane letters floating over him, in front of Dante and Kala's faces.

If they let him get up this time, he made no move to harm them, only stood and started rubbing his head, while telling Dante off. "Untie me you scown! Geez, I know I look different, but you usually try to talk to things before you kill them! I'm the one that always just kills 'em!" His voice was still rather indignant, but he also now added the comment, "If you could tell it was Druid magic, why'd you frell out? I'v told you I can't control sentient creatures." The Vagaran in Dracon form was still a little wary that his friend might continue to disbeleive him, and in fact, it was entirely possible that they didn't believe his floating words either, so he could still be being beaten and tied up.

OOCYou being in clara doesn't matter. If you are trying anything arcane Dante being in clara will see it and try to stop you goober ;)

Dante paused at the appearance of the large glowing words. It was a long confused pause and he stayed ready to tag the druid in the head again if he attempted any more dispelling. He moved to be in front of the beast and queried, "Prove it! Tell me something about myself or Carnasch that only we two would know."

He still had his blade ready and now that the 'being' was becoming wiley the Dracon was really ready to bring the beat down. No one pretended to be his friend and then try to kill him and get away with it. The dracon thing in front of him was quickly running out of time and had better come up with something good.

Since Carnasch couldn't actually talk while he was stuck with forcing his Mana into new shapes, because he was pretty sure that trying to Dispell Dante's magic would get him hit in the head again. And while he was tough enough to take it, he didn't really want to.

The words over his prone body melded together again and then reformed to say, "You and I are planning to hunt a succubus named Nera, that has been killing off people in Frigid River." If that message didn't work, but Dante didn't stick him on the spot, he tried, "We fought Redbeard together, you were paralyzed to the floor and we all got teleported to the emperor's palace. Hrwak nearly died and was shrunk to being tiny."

If that didn't work, at the very least, when Dante stabbed him, his blood would prove it. It would come out red, and stay that way. It would not turn black like the ichor of a true Dracon's. Hopefully it wouldn't come to Carnasch dying to prove himself right though.

Currently though, Carnasch lay on the ground in a rather uncomfortable position, with one of his wings pinned underneath him. He was looking up at Dante, but he looked at Kala more, and his eyes looked at her with worry that he had made a very large mistake. He might die now, because he had tried to do something nice for someone else for once in his life.

The spell dissipated at the second presentation of mana based words. "Carnasch? What are you doing?! You... you... cotton headed ninny muggins!" The absurdity of his insult was lost on him as he tried to keep from using the many colorful adjectives and verbs that he had become acquainted with through his association with sailors. The eshlahier seeming face was a gape that had he actually been a dracon Carnasch might have been able to land within Dante's mouth as his chin seemed to be touching the floor.

He was ready to punch his lights out as he untied the man's hands... well claws. "What?! How?! Why?!" There were too many questions running through his head for him to be able to sort them out. He was an apoplectic combination of rage, confusion and truthfully amusement. There had to be a story behind this, one that he had no doubt would have him laughing hysterically for eras to come, perhaps even centuries as Dracons did live a long time.

As he was finally able to form intelligible speech he started in on Carnasch again... "I didn't kill you you dolt! and you are lucky for it! Do you happen to recall... just maybe..." the sarcasm was dripping off every word he said like a ton of syrup off a too small pancake "...that we just fought a criminal syndicate in Jaedaxia? That I was also almost killed by a gang of antidraconites let's see just a few cycles ago? Not to mention the countless other bastards and assholes that have taken it upon themselves to try and hurt me, you and those we care about?!" The dracon was yelling at this point in unfeigned rage at the realization he had almost killed his friend. "Are you stupid?! Why didn't you tell us about this so that we wouldn't freak out when we found a complete stranger in our house?!"

He was waving his arms pacing back and forth as he chastised the Vagran, "Do you know why it is okay for me to do it? HMMMM?!" He was staring at him with the evil eye, "Because dracons... real ones... have. the. CALL!!!" His arms started waving again, "Kala immediately knows it is me, I know it is Kala, Nelly knows it is both of us! No wonder she was screaming!? You were a dracon without the call in the kitchen shortly after their dad almost died! Think of it like finding somebody sitting on your couch without a head!"

Still ranting and raving he continued to go off on the man, complaining about how Druids had tried to kill him in the past and that the type of magic was irrelevant and that he should have said something and that he was lucky Dante got there first because Kala or Niven would have just put an arrow in his sorry ass. Finally the tirade ended with a "Why? What on earth possessed you to do this?"

When the spell dissipaited, Carnasch began untieing himself and started yelling right back at Dante, he stood, since Dante hadn't gotten to tying his feet yet, but his hands were struggling against the rope that bound them. His wings he could deal with later, at least all tied up like this he wouldnt go knocking things about with them.

Carnasch responded with almost the same line of thought that Dante was throwing at him, "YES! That would be the key thing right there! ANTI-DRACONISTS! Why the hell would they send a dracon?! Nelly I can understand, Nikki too, but I didn't do anything even remotely aggressive! The only reason I even moved was cause thier screaming scared the tar out of me! I was worried they were actually in trouble until I saw them at the door and figured out they were screaming at me!"

"And how the hell was I supposed to know the Call was so important?!?" Carnasch had far fewer restraints on his own language, but he hadn't picked things up from sailors, so it wasn't as bad, "I didn't feel like messing with my brains when I wasn't sure if I could fix it! Doing this wasn't exactly a walk in the park you know! For all I knew, you could switch it on and off, just like the rest of your body!" It was true, Carnasch had very little knowledge of the call, except that they could use it to communicate. He had no idea that it was a personal locator device too.

"And even so-"

And of course now they got to the part about why Carnasch looked like a giant green lizard. This of course instantly shut him up, and rather than standing head and shoulders over Dante yelling his lungs out, he suddenly looked slightly abashed and took a step back.

As he did, his eyes moved to Kala, and then back to Dante, and he rubbed his hands together for a minute and after a bit said, "Er... well, I uh... I did it for Kala..." His mouth hung open a bit, and with a man it wouldn't have been quite so obvious, but with a Dracon's snout it was quite pronounced. It was apparent that he had thought she might like it, even if it was unexpected, when he added, "I meant to bring it out better than this, but I just finished it this morning..."

Dante roared back at the hulking beast of Carnaschdom, "You idiot! you aren't a real dracon dope! Kala, Nelly and I could sense it! That was the first thing that woke me up this morning! Nelly screaming at me with the call that someone disguised as a dracon had broken into the kitchen!!!!" He was standing toe to toe with the behemoth at this point, sure he was looking up at him a little, but his righteous indignation made him feel larger than he actually was.

"Besides the first group of anti dracons I dealt with in Diana WERE dracons! They were self hating narcissists and followers of Haya! They exist! And of course we return to the simple fact that you 'aren't' a real dracon! We know it and perhaps some dolt assassin thought we would be all lenient and helpful towards him only to stab us in the back later! Geez Carnasch I can't even begin to express the magnitude of the stupidity of this action!!!" He was still pacing waving his arms about as he yelled at his friend.

"Messing with your brain? Carnasch you don't understand what you are talking about! That would be like trying to shift into a mystic and have mysticism instead of Druidism! Even dracons can get mind lost from misusing the call! Don't try it ever!" He was as red faced as his eyes as he thought of the hugely cataclysmic ways in which Carnasch could have hurt himself. He grabbed the green dracon by the horns and stared at him in the eyes. "You want to go about like a dracon? Fine!!! Just tell me next time! Do NOT try anything with the call! Do you understand?!" His voice got really quiet and nervous, "I'm not kidding, some injuries even I can't heal."

Then of course his reason came out and Dante suddenly looked shocked. He looked confused to a point of well actually pretty normal considering this brightening's previous events. His baffled expression never faltered as he turned and faced Kala. She had lowered her bow to the ground and at Carnasch's announcement her arrow accidentally shot, ricocheted of the floor and was stuck firmly in the ceiling. She was blushing to match her night gown and couldn't meet Dante's eyes. With an exasperated, "What in Aeternia happened when I was gone? Maybe I'm dead? That's it. I've died and was found unworthy and Jalat is tor..." His rant trailed off as he left the kitchen with Kala and Carnasch its only occupants.

She looked up at him still blushing with tears in her eyes, "Carnasch? Wwwhat did you do?" She ran over and held him about the chest and he could feel, assuming he could feel through his dracon skin, her tears running down his chest. Her dainty elven form seemed to be trying to disappear into him.

As long as Dante kept yelling, Carnash was too, only now he was defending himself instead of accusing Dante. "I know Im not a real Dracon!! I said I was gonna bring this out later! The spell I used takes up a lot of energy though and I needed to eat! I didn't have any of my things with me, and why would I go through the trash when I'v got a kitchen full of food right here?!?"

In all actuallity, if it hadn't been for the fact that Kala was right there, and this had been for her and not Dante, Carnasch would have slammed his best friend in the face for that. Instead there was a hurt look in Carnasch's every expression for a moment, where he actually stopped yelling, and then it turned to a boiling anger that could have made lesser creatures than Dante faint with fear, and Carnasch's voice echoed out of the building with his next yell. There also may have been some of the more fragile items in the house that shattered too. "I AM NOT STUPID!! You wouldn't understand, the whole point is BECAUSE I'm not a Dracon!" His voice could only keep that up for so long, so it returned to normal Carnasch sized yelling shortly there after.

"I know! That's why I didn't do anything with it! I didn't want to go mucking about with my brain, so I left it as it was! I didn't want to risk it! I didn't want to end up dead, cause that would kinda defeat the point you arrogant wretch!" Dante was hardly arrogant normally, but assuming that Carnasch might have tried to do something quite that dumb, after he had said he didn't because he knew the consequences, was pushing it.

Finally, when the two had stopped yelling and Carnasch had explained himself at least a little, Dante tried to wander off. The barbarian was about to go after him, and he started saying, "Dante you're not de-" When Kala hugged him tight. That made him feel better, and yes, his scaly skin could feel just like any other Dracon's, so the tears running down his chest instantly made him upset again, but with sadness that he might have hurt Kala.

"I just... I thought you would like it, I just wanted... you to know... That I don't care what you look like, or that you're a Dracon, or something. And Niven said I would have to ask your parents if I could court you, and I just thought it might be easier for them to say yes if I looked like one of you, and... I'm sorry... I'll change it back as soon as I can..." He stroked her hair while he talked, careful not to scratch her with his claws, and held her close with his other hand.

He tried to go outside after that, nearly in tears of his own, and embarassed by them. He had never cried before since childhood, he hadn't thought he knew how anymore, but this brought it out. Hurting Kala, scaring her, disappointing her like this brought it out.
If she let him go, he tore at the ropes binding his wings, still trying to run off while doing it, and using his sharp claws until they came undone. He felt so ashamed. Once his wings came undone, he began flapping them and leapt to gain lift, and then he was off and flying. This was only if Kala let him go, if she even tried to stop him he would stay for her.

ooc Yes, Carnasch grew his wings so that the muscles were developed enough to fly. He also adjusted the muscles in the rest of his body to be able to handle it.

Dante's voice returned to a normal descible for a moment, "Carnasch what in Aeternia are you talking about? I don't care that you were eating in the kitchen! The point I'm trying to make is..." and of course his voice increased in volume again "YOU SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME!!! Seriously?! Even if you wanted it to be a secretDante doesn't know this is actually the case yet. He still thinks Carnasch is being reckless. who do you know that keeps them better than me? Hmm?! WHO?!"

Dante was snarling at this point, for although Carnasch didn't normally have teeth worth worrying about the two men were predators. There was no other way to more efficiently describe them. Sure they could be kind to the ones they cared about and even follow their own moral code, but when they were threatened they were merciless. Fortunately Dante considered Carnasch family so tried to keep his temper in check, "Even NOT STUPID PEOPLE CAN DO STUPID THINGS!" Okay so his temper wasn't that in check. His roar resonated through the house and was causing the already Carnasch induced harmonic vibrations to continue further to the point that unsteady things started to tip over. "What are you saying?! You want to be a dracon? You want to deal with everyone hating you for what you are rather than how you act? You want guards to follow you about and pay closer attention to you than necessary just because you have scales? You want your parents murdered right in front of you because a group of..." and out came the colorful sailor language that doesn't need to be emphasized here "... decided that your kind represented everything that was wrong with their lives so burned your family alive?! Did you ever stop to think that perhaps there might be a reason that I and Kala 'don't' go around as dracons all the time?"

Dante's mouth dropped open in shock before his Eshlahier seeming's teeth bared primally. His voice had dropped to the soft quiet right before a volcanic eruption. His Eshlahier eyes were ablaze with flame that was metaphorically spreading to his whole being through stance and body language. Almost as a whisper he repeated disbelievingly, "Arrogant wretch? I save your life for no reason other than the goodness of my heart and I'm an arrogant wretch? Gave you a job just so you'd have money when you needed it in case of emergencies, brought you in on the highest paying capers, helped you practice your arcana and Zinnka, took you in and made you a member of my family..." He looked away from Carnasch in disgust, "You pompous son of a bitch. You obviously didn't think about the consequences of your actions last night when you were doing... this..." he motioned to Carnasch's form "...whose to say you wouldn't try to 'remedy' the call absence in the future? Don't worry though..." his voice was a snarl "...this arrogant wretch won't bother worrying about 'you' again."

Children were heard crying from all corners of the house so when Carnasch explained why he had done what he had Dante left in exactly the same manner... let's face it he was too shocked by the announcement to do otherwise.

Kala of course wasn't letting go of him. Standing there in her night dress she simply held him close and cried. She cried because he was a sweet man. She cried because she had almost shot him through the heart. She cried because his attempt at a romantic gesture had been ruined. She cried because he had felt he had to do it in the first place. Finally she cried because he clearly said that he was going to ask her parents permission to court her. Hers was a mixture of sorrow and joy. She was on an emotional roller coaster that if Carnasch hadn't been there for her to hold onto would have caused her to drop to the floor. As it was her knees were week and Carnasch could feel her slipping. Unless he stayed to hold her she would collapse to the floor in a weepy heap.

Carnasch nodded vehemently and responded, "Yes, because keeping secrets is something to brag about!" Sarcasm dripped from his own voice now, "You're especially good at hiding things from your children! After all, they are to young to understand!"

He change topics as quickly as Dante though and shouted, "They already hate me! Im human just like them and they hate me! And Ill remind you that while your parents were murdered, MINE beat me my entire life! At least yours cared about you! At least they protected you! I know why you two don't go out like this, but its not about them, its about her!"

By the time that Dante had finished his last statement, Carnasch was too enraged to respond, and instead of trying to make his freind aware that he hadn't died and gone to hell, roared incoherently at his freinds back. Those things not truly secured down, the ones that had been vibrating before, now definatly fell to the ground. One of the shelves in the kitchen even bounced off its peg, althought it had been close to coming off already from Carnasch's wing hitting it earlier.

When Kala wouldn't let go of him, he returned her embrace and kept her upright, although if it became completely apparent that she couldn't stand without help, he sat beneath her and gathered her into his lap and arms. His wings were still bound, so leaning back against the counter was uncomfortable, but he ignored it. He didn't care. Her head was buried in his chest, and as the adrenaline and anger burned off, Carnasch's other emotions caught up with him and he cried too.

It wasn't a loud, wailing crying like many did, and in fact the only physical symptom was that there were tears coming out of his eyes, and that he seemed to hold his breath. He sucked each one in quickly, and then held it, and finally let it out slowly with perhaps just a bit of a shudder. He just held Kala tighter and laid his head on top of hers, rocking back and forth after a little while while they sat on the floor.

Was Carnasch insane? Well alright of course he was insane, but why did Dante keep forgetting that? With a look of confusion and exasperation he once again had to ask, "What in Aeternia are you talking about? Of course being someone who can be trusted is something to strive for! And what do my children have to do with any of this? They obviously didn't understand which is why they were screaming in terror!!! Are you sure you didn't mess with your brain?"

"At least you had yours you idiot!" then something else Carnasch said sunk in, "If it was about her then you wouldn't have brought attention to something she tries to HIDE!" It was a good thing Dante wasn't in dracon form for he would have claw struck some sense into the idiot. Regardless he stormed out in his dazed stupor of whirling rage leaving them alone.

Kala just held Carnasch. She held him close and let him rock her. Her dainty elven frame wracked with the sobs of her emotional overload. It would be a long time before she was able to respond again and at some point nearing Rosyun the door to the front of the house would open and the rest of the inhabitants of the house would be heard leaving, except perhaps Niven.

"I did it to show her she didn't have too!"
ooc This might be kinda sad/wierd, but all this IC yelling has actually made sick of it. Im not sure now that worked.

Carnasch held Kala for a long time, his thoughts whirling. At first he was angry, then he cried, and after that came the greiving. He wanted to beat his head against the wall as some sort of punishment, but while he was holding Kala he couldn't. After a while he grumbled out, "I should have known better. I should have known that this would end badly, that I would ruin everything."

"I should have never agreed to come here. I just **** things up everywhere I go. Im more a monster than any Dracon, Saurid, or Vysstichi. I destroy every thing I touch with out even trying. At least when they break something, its because they choose to." A lot of this was so mumbled that it would be hard to make out, and even if the others had still been in the house only Kala would have been able to hear him, even though he was talking to himself.

"I should go, before I ruin anything else."
