The Mother And Her Lamb

____________________________________________
 

 

____________________________________________
 

Rhaella Ashwood-Velulaei’onn couldn’t help but think about what she could have done better in her years of being an early mother. She thought about it every day, but as the time passed, the thoughts grew cloudier, darker…

“I should have never ran for Lunar Sage...” The Mali’ker woman mumbled as she paced around Asimu’lei’s Vallel’ame Forest.’ The beautiful blue trees gave her a temporary feeling of peace as she aligned her thoughts. They had blamed it on her work, the lack of attention.. Every decision she made was wrong as a mother, oftentimes she also felt just as awful at being a leader. She just wanted her children to be happy, her people too, and she had believed she had failed. Rhaellas eyes filled with tears as she thought that she became the one thing she didn’t want to be; the mirror image of her own father. Rhys even compared her to him from time to time- his words live knives in her chest.

Reassuring talks became arguments- but it was always her fault.. Or so it was said. 

 

Rhaella would take in a deep breath as she looked down at an object she had been holding in her hands; one that reminded her of an easier time in life, one of her most valued moments. It was a small stuffed lamb one of her adopted sons had given to her and her son, Valus, after he was born. She sank to the ground as she held the stuffed toy close to her chest, her tears continuing to fall.. Slowly, she put the lamb down and dug into her satchel, pulling out some papers from her bags

Her written will; Who Lunar Sage would go to, words addressed to her family, the dividing of her things.. Plans all made in advance. She would read through it over and over while thinking about the consequences her decision would have on everyone. Nobody could convince her this wasn’t the best option. For not only her, but her children, and everyone whom she loved both in Renelia and Asimu’lei. She felt at peace though, oddly enough. Having taken care of some last things in Asim, and making plans for a future she would not be there to watch. Once done, she would pick the lamb back up. Resting it between her body and left arm along with the stacked papers.

The Mali’ker woman stood back up and sighed. Despite her tears and the fear, she smiled then. She felt for the wedding ring given to her by the Archon. Her love for Ailmar and his sons would live on, and she hoped they knew that. She hoped her brothers and sisters would forgive her for the bitterness she laid on them with every adoption Xavis brought into the clan- and Xavis, she knew this would be hard on him, or at least she liked to think that he cared enough to cry for his daughter… Rhaella would laugh softly, shaking her head some as she tried to repress the sinking feeling that ached in her chest. If she thought about it any longer, she might change her mind.. With that she would walk back into her city to meet her sister.

“Are you sure?” Twilight would ask Rhaella as they looked at the city's clinic

 

Rhaella took a deep breath and nodded, those items still held tightly in her arms. She knew this was a lot to ask of her sister, but regardless she had eventually agreed. The woman would adjust her belongings a bit before bringing twilight into a hug.. When they both pulled away, Rhaella would hand her the stack of items
 

“It’s my will… and the lamb, be sure to return it to Valus.. Ti?”  They exchanged sad nods in understanding. With her last bit of remaining courage, Rhaella would have then turned to enter the clinic.. The safety gates then closing.

____________________________________________

 

 

Not too long after the clinic within Asimu’lei would be up in flames, the heating waving onto Twilight as she watched for some time. Eventually, she sent for others to help her put out the fire and clear the rubble of the ruined building.. Within the rubble though would be Rhaella’s wedding ring, as well as a star and moon pendant, covered in ash and some damage from the fire. They would eventually be returned to the people who gifted them... and within the elven day, the lamb would find it’s way to its rightful owner as well.

A funeral date will be decided at a later date by the new Lunar Sage and their council.

A Sister's Promise



 

Twilight walked into Asimu'lei, Ready to fulfill the promise that was made. 

As she strolled about the streets coming across the person she was looking for, Something off about her. With out stopping they walk to the clinic.

 

A hug was shared between the two woman and words exchanged.

 

“Are you sure?”  

 

Was the last thing you hear from Twilight with a nod from the other woman as the screen then cut to the build on fire and falling down.

 

After looking at the fire for a good minute she’d say under her breath “Luara watch over her” after speaking, REGRET setting, calling “FIRE!” as other rushed to put it out.

A vaelyan scholar would stumble upon the ruins of the Asimulei Clinic, shaking his head just slightly at the sight. “A shame, yet another clinic gone. “Would be the words of such scholar, before slowly moving off back to the university.

 

Spoiler

Apparently it was **** anyways, thank the lord.

Ailmar was still in a coma, and would wake up to a dead wife in a few years from now.

By the time Sevrel had arrived to the scene of the fire, it was not but smoldering rubble and ash covered debris. He conducted a brief survey of the area, before ordering several of his guards to begin investigating, along with ordering the security measures to be doubled around the city.

 

As he walked up the stairs to his apartment, he barely got to his door before starting to lose his composure. He got himself inside his home, locked the door and unravelled. He let out an agonized scream of pure grief, as he smashed his fist into the wall until blood dripped from his worn knuckles. In a fit of rage, he drew his sword and brought it down on his dinner table, nearly slicing it clean in half, before the anger turned to sorrow. He stumbled and collapsed onto the floor with his back leaning against the wall; and hung his head, as hot tears streamed down his face, and spattered onto the floor.

 

Alone, only with the memories of his oldest and dearest friend, he wept...

Velsyni Indoren hummed in quiet sorrow as the rumors reached her ears. “I never did get to take her up on that conversation she wanted. What a shame,” She let out a long sigh and rose from her seat, wandering outside to go on a short walk to clear her mind.

As Veris was told the news by Twilight, tears rushed his eyes as he began choking on his very words trying to escape his mouth, “I.... I never got to... call her mom.” he would say before looking up at the moon above as tears begin to pour from his eyes.

Lenora having heard the news of her sister's passing. Tears welling in her eyes "N-no... You have to be joking." she almost choked "You-You're going right?" The tears starting to passively make their way down her face "You have to be... S-she wouldn't do something like this!?!" The maii'ker wouldn't didn't believe her own words. Mourning the loss of her sister and one of her best friends... Wondering how she could leave everyone behind

Xavis silently stands in front of the burning building with his eyelids covering his eyes to try and prevent tears from flowing out of the sockets. It wasn't a huge display, yet something nonetheless. His right hand extends towards the burning building before falling back to his side. Though he speaks no words, he shows a display of complete sorrow for his lost daughter

Twilight would later help move Xavis away from the building as it falls down after helping him to his feet...

A figured off ontop of the nearby Asimulei house rooftops looks down towards the burning clinic.. looking through the smoke, almost patiently... Though after a moment, a small chuckle echos throughout the nearby empty landscape around him. A small grin perking underneath the man’s hooded face. Twirling a piece of lapiz between his fingers, he lays back. “So thats where the world has brought yah ey Rhaella?” he wonders, the smile on his face still bright despite being hidden. “May my biggest b*tch of a grand-daughter find peace.. i’ll be waiting.” he notes, eventually fading backwards into nothingness, as the form of the figure seems to condense into ethereal mists to idly float around in the skies.

Tantalus, in a far, far away land, would receive the news, his one working eye welling up as he heard it. He let out a low, mournful sigh, pocketing the paper and turning towards the rising sun, silently continuing on his journey to a new dawn, and the new future that it would bring.

Delphi would bow her head, staring down at the letter received but an elven day prior. A hand covers her mouth and she couldn’t cry. The clinic in which she had delivered Rhaella’s son, gone. So was Rhaella, herself, her beloved, wonderful Rhaella. It sat in her stomach, heavy and uneasy like a snake coiled in her heart. She died in a fire, so Twilight had wrote, walked into the flames and never came out. 

 

”I’ll see ya ‘round, Malii’lari...”

 

These words are whispered as she finished off what was left in her pipe, cactus green and other herbs. Something to numb the pain of a second familial loss. She’d need to hug Twilight and Lenora tight as could be soon.
