The Threads of Time

Cordir says, quietly and sadly, 'I spent too long today amidst the Threads of Time. I miss Deamhan.'.

DarkClaw frowns, slowly.
DarkClaw says, 'I can only imagine the emptiness you feel.'.

Cordir says, '...we danced. In my Garden. His ghost and I .. when you were all at the Ball. It seemed only .. mannerly? So I thanked Venom for hosting the Ball.'.

DarkClaw asks, '...Was it worth the pain...to see him again?'.

Cordir answers without hesitation, the word barely breathed: 'Yes.'.

A soft, slow, light drizzling rain begins to fall.

DarkClaw whispers, 'It's alright to cry. I won't tell a soul.'.

The rain intensifies slightly.

DarkClaw hesitates only briefly before wrapping her arms around you in an unfamiliar gesture, but sincere with the desire to comfort you.

Cordir stands still and silent - not rigid and rejecting, but not relaxing, either.
Cordir takes a long, deep breath.

The rain turns stingingly hard, pelting down from a gray sky.

DarkClaw says, 'You've had to be so strong for so long...for so many others...making countless sacrifices out of duty.'.

Cordi draws back out of the comforting hug.
Cordir says, 'That is my job. It is what keeps me going.'.

DarkClaw sighs, feeling the failure of what she was trying to accomplish.
DarkClaw murmurs, 'It does not go unnoticed...But I wish for your happiness again.'

Cordir shifts uncomfortably, turning away before responding: "It's just the occasional bout of loneliness. Gwyr's return is a reminder of all the other losses."
Cordir withdraws further, moving a step away. "I will be fine. Thank you for .. being worried."

DarkClaw says quietly, pleading, "Don't...don't shut me out more...not now."

Cordir glances back over her shoulder at the Kindred.
Cordir says, with a bare smile, in an attempt to reassure, "I am not, Star.. but as I was reminded of today by Venom, if I don't mind my thoughts, they manifest in the world..that can be dangerous. I'm just striving for self control.'.

The unusual rain begins to fade.

Cordir reaches out and briefly squeezes your hand before releasing it.

DarkClaw watches you quietly for a moment.
DarkClaw says, 'When I was under your wing so long ago. I had no idea all the sacrifices made, all the effort put forth... All the heartache and decision making...'.

Cordir nods. 'But you have your own now - and you understand ..'

DarkClaw says, 'Had I have known then, I would have respected you much, much more. For that, I am sorry.'

Cordir frowns.
Cordir says, 'There isn't anything to forgive there, Star.'

DarkClaw says, 'Perhaps not, but I regret not showing you more even so...'
