    Long Road Home.... - Erosaf -

    Post  Kanchana on Thu Jul 21, 2011 6:41 pm

    Cyara, Sahar, Taeron and Kasinda

    She stood tall, as tall as her short frame would allow, with rich red locks curling down her spine only to pause at her narrow set waist. Her high arched cheek bones were littered with pallid skin, but no freckles danced over her pale features. Her ears, like other elves of her kind, were pointed at the ends, but could not been seen behind the wild locks that framed her face.
    Slight as her frame was, her arms were as limber as they were slender, and she walked with an easy pace. A bow and quiver of arrows rested over her left shoulder, most of the arrows missing or broken at the ends.

    Her long forest green shirts flowed to the ground, just above the dirt floors and was as clean as weeks of travel could allow.

    But hidden behind all this beauty was a tired soul. Her feet ached after days of travel, her eyes were heavy and she needed to rest. But if she stopped, Sahar knew she wouldn't be able to continue.

    The huge set dragon, coloured as dark as the night sky, paced beside her. She hummed with worry, her large dish like eyes flickering to her every moment and sighed, knowing that her rider put her children before her own well being. That was the only reason the 10 year old twins were sitting on her back at that moment, knowing that Sahar wouldn't have it any other way. Cyara wished she was bigger, but even at over 100 years old, she still wasn't big enough to carry three wriggling people.

    "Hush Cyara, we are close now...I will be okay," she whispered to the motherly dragon, "not long to go now."

    And she spoke the truth. The forests were more alive now, the closer they got to the elven power. The roads seemed more familiar, even to her tired mind. And she had trust in her dragon, who knew the sky and the land then any land bidden creature alive.

    ***

    Hours came and went, the travelling group growing more excited as well as tired as they continued onwards. The children no longer their proud, playful selves were more quiet, gazing upon their mother with worry, but they knew that their father was not to far in the distance.

    "How far now Mama?" questioned Kasinda, her kind soul large enough fill the world while her brother snorted at her question.

    "Not far sweetie," came the whispered reply.

    "You said that hours ago!" challenged the impatient Taeron, bouncing in place until the soft growl of warning from Cyara set him in place, "sorry Mum...I just want to see Dad!"

    "I know," she sighed "I know."

    Though the talking, they passed over the top of the last steep hill they would cover. The town they sought now rested below them, mingled within the trees and landscape. A sigh of relief left the young mother, her hand resting over her kindly heart.

    "Home," she whispered, smiling for the first time in weeks as the children leapt from Cyara's back and charged at the family home.

    He stood in the middle of the sparring grounds, laughing as he worked once more against one of the other elves. This was something he enjoyed, to be able to spar with the others and always come out unbeaten. Except for the one time Gem had beaten him, of course, he was not a beaten elf. There was no one else who stood that kind of chance against him.

    'Drannor, look to the hilltop,' Neldor rumbled from overhead. Then he roared, blue flames shooting from his navy snout into the air.

    The tall elf looked across the field towards the hill and stopped completely. Sahar. She was there. He blinked once and then started to run, not caring that the vampire speed he ran with would startle her. He had to get over there and fast she looked dead on her feet. Auraka would not be happy if he saw his sister in such a state at all.

    The closer he got to her, the worse off Sahar looked, but it was not just at her that he looked. Cyara was there. As were the twins. His children. The children he had thought a monster like himself would never have once. Now he knew better, and he was pleased to see all of them were safe. He had missed them terribly.

    Then he was there, infront of all of them. “My family.” Then he frowned at Taeron. "And when will you learn to stop being so impatient, Taeron. Patience is a good thing to have!"

    She blinked, standing unsteadily as a black haired blur sprinted towards her. Never had she seen him move at such a speed, but she had always guessed he could, but never did so not to scare her away.

    Unable to stop herself, she fell into his arms with a sob and hugged him tightly.
    "Drannor!" she cried, so glad to see him. To touch and feel him once more, it was as if all the hard work from the last weeks had paid off, now that she was safe once more in his arms.

    She pressed her lips against his chest, sighing as he told Taeron off.

    "Hush," she murmured "we are tired, hungry and haven't slept in days..do not scold him for acting out...he is normally a good boy."

    Taeron shook his head but shrugged "sorry father," he said, bowing his head low in respect "I didn't mean to...be so impatient in my ways. Please, forgive me."

    The words were stiff and formal, as if he was afraid of being in more trouble.

    Kasinda took no heed of the words around her, merely leapt off Cyara's back and threw her arms around her father's neck.

    "Daddy!" she sobbed, joining her mother in the hugging-fest as Taeron stood slightly apart, not wanting to be drawn into a sobbing mess.


    Cyara lifted her snout in greeting, letting loose her own set of bright flames in Neldor's direction and half-smiled.
    "Neldor," she called to her mate, glad to see him once again "I have missed you dear one."

    He was pleased to see them. “How can I stay angry at any of you? I spent the last few weeks thinking all of you were dead,” Drannor exclaimed, wrapping his arms around them. He was not crying, that ability was gone from him, ever since Gem had nearly killed him and forced him to be what he was.

    There was a loud thump and Neldor was there as well, licking at Cyara's cheek. “Dont you dare do that to either of ever again,” he said sternly, but there was a mocking sound to the Dusk Dragon's reprimand.

    Drannor chuckled. “You'll learn, Taeron. Now get over here and give me a hug,” he said, looking over at his son. Clearly there was nothing to forgive. He smiled at all of his family. “Now let us get you all home, so you can rest and recover. Later you can tell me what happened to all of you. Last thing i remember was seeing Auraka telling me to get Gem out of where we were, and not seeing any of you since.”

    The young woman sobbed harder at his words, clutching his body tighter to her own.
    "I am so sorry Drannor..." she whispered, soft green eyes watching him as the tears fell silently, "I...I will tell you later our story."

    She looked at the twins with a gentle nod, not wanting them to hear the truth of what had happened. She had saved them the best she could, half the things they didn't know about or merely didn't understand. Only her eyes spoke of the untold horrors that had been forced upon her.

    Taeron smiled sheepishly at his father, before allowing himself to be pulled into the family hug.

    "Let's go," Sahar agreed softly, knees shaking gently from the weeks worth of travel finally catching up with her. But she refused to be carried, she had walked this far...she could walk a little more.


    ***

    Cyara hummed in content, rubbing her scaled nose against his coloured scales.
    "Of course not Love, then I wouldn't be able to see you would I?" she whispered warmly, glad to be home at last.
    She knew what Sahar had been though, and what she would face. And the other possibilities that could occur. But for now, it was all smiles. Just glad to be home.

    "Any news of Rasjar and Auraka?" she questioned Neldor after a moment "and how fair's Gem and the little ones?"

    He knew she would never ask him to carry her, though this time he was not about to let her do any more walking. He could tell that there was something heavy on her mind. He did not pause to ask, instead he simply lifted her up into his arms. “Your not walking another step,” he said, not taking any put me down's from her this time. “You've walked far enough, Sahar.”

    Though he kneew that he would have startled her, he didn't care this time. “You're nearly dead on your feet. Would be cruel of me to let you walk.” He chuckled lightly.

    He looked at Cyara. “They were born yesterday. Two little girls and a boy. All of them are healthy which is surprsing considering Gem nearly died not long ago.”

    Neldor laughed. "Auraka and rasjar appeared home yesterday, not long before the children were born."

    Cyara snorted, shaking her dark head with laughter.
    "Of course," she muttered, pacing after her rider and mate, the children following behind.

    Sahar gasped with complaint, wriggling and complaining to be put down but it was quickly clear that he had no intentions to.
    So, blushing a deep red to match her hair, she was carried down towards their house.

    He chuckled as he held her tightly in her arms. "Have you never learnt that struggling against me will never work?" he asked, lowering his head to kiss her gently on the forehead. "I would have thought after all this time you would have learnt to give up when it comes to this."

    He was amused that she still tried to get him to put her down. Eventually she stopped and he smiled at her. "Plus I couldn't stand not having you in my arms any longer, its been too long as it is." That was also very true. She was everything to to him.

    "Yeah," she whispered, smiling as his lips brushed her forehead "I have missed being in your arms..."

    She blushed at her words slightly, tilting away but was unable to keep her gaze from his handsome features for long.

    As they pulled into the familiar yard, she blinked and took in the sight of home. A long six months, almost 7 months had passed since she had last set foot on these lands. So much had happened, so much she had to tell the one who held her tightly in his arms.
    She lived in his touch at that moment, knowing their was a chance she might never touch him again.
    Not when he knew the truth of what happened.

    “You're hiding something from me,” he chuckled. He knew there was something, but also that she was worried of the reaction he might have. “Trust me, there is nothing you could possibly say that would end us being one family, Sahar.” That was something he was well aware of at the moment.
    He opened the front door, only putting her down on one of the couches in the lounge room. No sooner had he done that, he sat down himself next to her, wrapping his arms around her. He'd grown too used to her smell, the last few months had been hell for him.

    Neldor chuckled as they moved. “I'm glad you're back. You dont know what its been like with him moping over Sahar. That sorta effected me too.” He smiled though as they headed towards where they normally slept. Things were finally back to normal.

    She hesitated, not meeting his eyes for a moment and nodded once, sharply but then looked at the children, indicating she wouldn't talk in front of them if she would at all.
    But then she sighed deeply, her gaze returning to Drannor's.
    "I don't know about that," she whispered, leaning into his cool embrace and sighed against his chest "I am so sorry Drannor."

    ***

    Cyara hummed, lifting her head and nuzzled just under his chin before rumbling with laughter.
    "Yes," she whispered, large eyes blinking "I know how that feels...but, you can't say you weren't missing me can you Neldor?"
    She teased him gently and tugged at his tail as she followed him towards their den "you didn't miss me at all?"

    He nodded, then looked at his chilcren. “Why don't you two go and freshen up while we take?” he suggested. He did want ton know what had happened to his wife, he really did. She had sparked his curiousity now. And he was not going to let that rest.

    He smiled at both of them, knowing how proud he was of them. “You both have done well over the last few months, I know that much because you're still with us. I couldn't be more proud of you both than I am now. Of any of you actually.”
    ***

    “He laughed. “Of course i missed you, Cyara. Why would you think i did not?” he chuckled, looking back at her as he dove once more. “And you know i hate it when you pull my tail.”

    "Well I like tugging on it," she teased playfully, tugging it once more gently before leaping into the sky and swiftly disappearing into the clouds with only a shadow.
    "Come on Neldor!" she roared, dark head popping out between her soft white friends "let's go to the den!"
    She felt young once more, not that she was as old as many, but at the feeling of being home she felt more relaxed then ever before. And she wanted to speak with him.

    ***

    Sahar watched in silence as her twins nodded, seeming to sense something was going on, and didn't fight to stay.
    At the sound of a door softly closing, Sahar turned to her husband and instantly broke into heart-wrenching sobs.
    She didn't want to tell him. She didn't want him to know what she had gone though. She didn't want to have to repeat the many horrors she had been forced with. Only years of practise kept Drannor from her mind, not unleashing the terrors that had happened.

    Slowly the sobs turned to hiccups, but she still couldn't form the words she needed to tell him.
    So, instead, for the first time in years, Sahar opened her mind completely just to him. Pulling and tugging the memories from her mind and showing him, just what she had been though. She didn't want to, but he had a right to know what had happened to his wife. A right to not want her any more.

    Two tall figures entered the room, both human and covered with cloaks. It was the same every time. Sahar forced her twins behind her, refusing to allow them to see the men who treated them all so badly. They were only 10! They had no say in this war, no right to be put though the torture of others.
    Oh how she had begged the first few days, to let them free. She would do anything they wanted if they would just let her children free. But humans had no mercy, at least these ones did not. They just told her to shut up and move on, to be happy that they didn't have the same fate as her.


    She showed him images of being beaten, almost to death, only her years of a healer allowing her to keep them alive. Alongside the strength of Cyara from a distance, which she had to share with the twins. She showed him everything...apart from the last, which she refused to share. Instead she locked eyes with him, pushing away from his embrace and shuddered at the suddenly loneliness she felt.

    Get used to it, she muttered to herself, you'll be alone soon once more.

    He was completely aghast at the things that she was showing him in her own head. More than once he shuddered, recoiling before continuing to watch. “They dared.” He growled, and one hand turned into a wolf's paw before he quickly got in control again. To become a wolf with her this close would be disastrous. When she stopped though, he did not need to her to show him, he knew already what they might have done.

    “This changes nothing between us, love,” he said, pulling her tightly to him. “Yet what on earth can I hear that's not one of you... well, it is, but its odd, no one has two heartbeats.” he was not going to let her go this time. No a chance. “You know you can tell me anything.”

    **
    Neldor laughed and then dove, down straight into their den. It was good to have her back and she knew he was happy to have her with him once more.

    Green eyes widened with horror at his hands turned into paws, her face turning even paler if possible. But she wasn't scared, merely surprised. She would never push herself away from him, only he could her.

    Teary orbs gazed at him before she whispered the fatal words.
    "I'm pregnant," she sobbed "with a human's baby!"

    She cried against his chest, letting the past six months fall away from her and into tears. Never during that time had she cried, having stayed strong for her children. But now safe in her husbands arms, she couldn't contain herself.

    "I was....forced...Drannor!" she managed to get out "they tried in the room with the children, but the begged them not to let them see! I didn't want them to see it Love..I couldn't let them see them do that to me!"

    She shuddered roughly at the memories, suddenly feeling dirty and used.

    ***

    Cyara chortled with his laughter, ducking down after him and into their den, instantly entering and moving to her old resting place, falling tiredly to her side. She was tired, but she had missed home to much to complain.
    But first, before she could rest her eyes, she wanted to talk to him.

    "Neldor," she murmured "you know, mating season is in a few weeks."

    Her dark scaled tail flickered back and forth, a glint in her eye as her studied him.

    "So, are you planning on having a clutch with me this year?" she asked, wondering and silently hoping. She wanted to have children so bad, especially after Sahar had. She had always been a motherly soul, and now just over a hundred years of waiting, she wanted her own.

    “Ssh, I would never hurt you,” he murmured, seeing the fright that came when his hands changed into paws then back to normal hands again. He knew though that he was weaker than he normally was, he'd learnt animals were not as nourishing as humans or elves, not that he would mention it.

    Though there was a growl in his throat from the wolf in himself, he knew that was the only thing that showed the fury he felt towards the humans. “I think a few humans need teaching a lesson, though I'll have to talk with Keya first, seeing as they are her people.”I doubt though that she would say no, she is extremely fond of all of us elves, seeing as she is half one herself.”

    He wrapped his arms around her gently, “Don't think about it any more. What's happened is in the past. You know the child will be well looked after here, even if you didn't want one in the first place.” gently he kissed away the tears that came from her beautiful eyes.

    **

    He laughed. “I would be more than happy to, Cyara. You know I did not last time because of the battle to come, my love.” now it was behind them.

    How could she be so lucky? How could she, a once orphan that grew up with humans, have a man such as Drannor as her husband.
    Finding her true self, as one of the elves, had been the best thing she had ever done.

    "Thank you," she whispered, nestling deeper into his chest "can you...can you please not tell anyone?"

    She peered up at him with glassy orbs and half-smiled "I..I don't want anyone to know!"

    She didn't want anyone to know that she was carrying another's child, to think differently upon her due to her misfortunes.

    ***

    "True," she hummed softly, happy of what the future would hold and nuzzled closer to his warm side "now..I must rest, I gave Sahar and the children to much of my strength to keep them alive."

    “Don't worry, no one will know but us and likely our dragons. I know Neldor's been listening in, but I don't have it in me to block him from my mind to be honest.” He smiled softly. “He's been the one who's reminded me to hunt every now and again. He's the one who's kept me alive really.” It had not been himself.

    He was ashamed to admit it. He had not hunted in at least a week, but for some reason he was not bothered by her proximity. That was something he could not really understand.
    **

    “Rest, and I shall got for a hunt,” he said. “I'll bring you something back.” neldor smiled at her, then he left the cave.

    Cyara nodded her thanks, curling tighter into her scales and sighing at the feeling of warmth and safety overflow her. Six months to long since she had laid to rest in this place.
    "Hurry back to me."

    ***

    "Cyara already knows," she whispered, looking away in shame "she helped me as much as she could, but the distance made it hard..."

    At the mention of needing to hunt, she lifted her gaze to his once more again and searched his face.
    "You must hunt Drannor," she scolded, noting the coal black orbs with worry, but smiled softly that he hadn't hunted the animals she held so dear "but thank you..."

    Propping herself up and slightly away from him, her arms rested comfortably around her waist and she turned to him.
    "Drink now, then we can go help the children...they have missed you dearly, and have their own scars to heal....then I think it best we go and visit Gem and my brother."

    The eyes widened at the words that Sahar said. “No not from you. I'll make do with something else. You've been too much, it would be fools play if I drank from you this time. I won't be long.” Again there was no chance of him backing down. “Much as it goes against what you like to hear, animals have been the only thing I've hunted over the last few months while you were gone.”

    Not even humans had he considered, they had reminded him too much of Sahar so that was something that had been out of the question. He had had to find something else to hunt, and that was something that had not been easy for him to do at all. She had no idea how weak he had let himself get. He stood after shifting her back onto the couch. Then he was gone from the house, out into the woods.

    He did not stay out there very long, only a deer did he need at that. Soon he was back in the house, and hugging her again. “Done.”

    **

    neldor did not take long to hunt, and soon there were a few deer with him which he left on the ground in the cave, while he waited for her to wake up again.

    Sahar sat their, eyes peeled out the window as she awaited his return. She knew he wouldn't change his mind, but it still saddened her to know what he was doing out in the woods. But there was nothing she could do to change it, nothing that would make her feel differently about her chosen mate.

    Nothing at all.

    "Welcome home," she whispered as he re-appeared, forcing her mind away from the poor animal he must of hunted in the woods.

    ***

    The black scaled sniffed the air, tasting it with her forked tongue before allowing her large eyes to snap open. The scent of food and blood had awoken her.

    Grunting as she shifted weight onto her tired claws, she crawled towards the meat and quickly pulled it apart with her barbed tongue.

    He sighed as he came back in. he was not as strong as he was when he fed from her, but the strength was still noticeably more than that of a normal elf. It was something he was glad of, the strength was something he was getting used to very much so now. “I guess we best see to our children then,” he added after a moment. He wrapped his arms around her. No, it was not the same, but it was something he had grown ever so used to at the moment. She was the only one that knew that though.

    How he wished she had never been taken away from him, but he knew that things happened for a reason, always. He was concerned though for his family. They had been through some hard times. “And I must see to Taror eventually. I will have to talk to Maith about that one. She knows where I stand on that issue, but I can't deny the laws of my old home.” Only a male heir could take that throne
    .

    ***

    He chuckled as he saw her awaken once more, and waited while she ate. He at least had hunted regularly, unlike his rider. That was something that could be a pain at times. He knew what it was like for Drannor not to hunt.

    "If you're still hungry I can catch you another."

    "You make that sound like a bad thing," she teased, shuffling to her feet in a tired fashion and wiped her tears away, trying to hide all evidence of her breakdown. Her children didn't need to see that.

    At the mention of Taror, her birth town she had just found out about, she nodded sadly. They had talked about it a while ago, about having to move and rule there. At least Drannor had to, and Taeron would be the heir as their eldest son.
    "Let us recover and then we can speak of moving," she said softly, moving her way up the stairs and into the twins room.

    ***

    She yawned lazily, rolling onto her back and rubbed her belly with a claw before rolling back around.
    "No thanks, that was more then filling," she said with a toothy grin "I might head out for a hunt later."
    She bobbed her head pleasantly and cocked it to the right.
    "So, what has happened in our absence?"

    "For me it is a bad thing. My home is here, in Anthatal, not back there. Yet I know i have to go home." He sighed, looking down at Sahar, he had easily caught up to her on the stairs. This was his home, and there was nothing that was going to change that right now.

    He smiled at her. "Maith is keeping things in check for the meantime, but soon I have to go back and deal with my people on my own mind."

    ***

    He chuckled. "At least you don't have to worry. Drannor and Maith have been talking frequently to do with Taror's leadership. Thats the main thing. Oh and gem turned up out of the blue though she'd been missing."

    Sahar nodded with a soft smile.
    "I know Drannor, I feel the same way..." she said sadly "but one must do what they must, no matter what they feel like."

    ***

    "Gem was missing?" her attention clung to those words and her eyes opened wide "I thought she just had children with Auraka?"
    Sadly, she shook her head. Their world was a mess at the moment. Missing people showing up, all of their key leaders gone for a reason or another.
    "Poor Gaelira."
