    Maria leapt up in a flash, recoiling from the elf’s touch with an expression of sudden fear – the furniture of the drawing room left her nowhere to go, Illiiya’s hand seizing her arm with one swift motion.

    With a slow blossoming of light, the room lit up – frozen in place, Maria looked down at her dress, now glowing from shoulder to hem with shifting, mottled light. She was caught in a very odd position – both arms held back close to her body, her left hand wrapped in her right. Slowly, she relaxed her posture, staring in confusion at Illiiya.

    “What – wh – is this some kind of joke?” she demanded, evidently rattled. Her voice trembled, for the first time departing from the silky composure she had always displayed before. “What have you done?

    Lothar glanced from the elf to the noblewoman in confusion, one hand still on the sword's hilt. "She... she's made your dress glow? Illiiya- what is going on?"

    Illiiya Jaelrae

    Vindication! Now, whore... it is our turn to be smug.

    Let you incriminate yourself. Illiiya said with a smug and wicked smile, It's a simple light spell. A very intense reaction t-to a spell you thought would burn the corrupt, though. So... we'll be going to the guardhouse now and showing them the ch-chaos mark that is undoubtedly on your right hand. I'm sure the guard, the p-priests and the witch hunter will be very interested in seeing it and speaking with you.

    Illiiya stepped back from the woman, reveling perhaps a bit too much in finally seeing the flawless creature struck dumb. Crazy as she may be, it lifted her heart more than she could express to know that it was not all baseless paranoia.

    Come quietly and we will check you, so you may prove me wrong... but I'm not wrong, am I? She said, watching the woman for signs she intended to fight, I'm sorry Raffy... I really am... But your woman has been lying to you. She is a cultist, a killer and likely a whore.

    Maria stared in incredulity.

    “How dare you,” she bit back, her composure returning with a steely ring. “How dare you come in here, how – here!”

    She thrust her hand forwards, turning it over in front of Illiiya’s eyes. It was clean and unblemished. Still glaring daggers at the elf, she walked over to the sideboard, picking up a small brass bell and ringing it sharply. In a few moments, Alfons had appeared at the door, far faster than the hobbled old man had any right to move – he had clearly been malingering somewhere nearby. Poking his head into the room, he stared with boggle-eyed stupor at his mistress’ radiant attire.

    “Alfons, Rafale and his friends will be leaving,” she said, decidedly. “Illiiya is obviously unwell.”
    Mouth open, Alfons made to point at her dress – his head turned to Illiiya, then back to Maria, and he seemed to think better of it. Swallowing, he nodded.
    “Right away, m’lady.” He leered at the party. “If you’d follow me, please...”

    ((OOC: Holy crap.))



    Pieter's face grew ashen when the Elven girl cast her spell.

    "Illiiya, what do you think you're doing?" he hissed, lunging forward to seize her wrist.


    "It's a simple light spell. A very intense reaction t-to a spell you thought would burn the corrupt, though."
    "Damn it, Illiiya," Pieter yelled. "That's a perfectly normal reaction when a loony witch rearranges reality around you!"

    He had not meant to sound so harsh, but the events had spun out of control too quickly.


    But your woman has been lying to you. She is a cultist, a killer and likely a whore.
    Before he could stop himself, Pieter aimed a slap at Illiiya's face.

    Oh gods, what did I do? he thought, stunned. Um, I was trying to calm her. Yes. I did not hit a girl out of anger.

    ((I've been absent 24 hours, and if possible, would like to do a minor time shuffle here so Maria knows I am not party to this.))

    Raffy watches at first, but when Illiiya begins to cast, his sword comes out into his hand.

    As Maria bears the sign-free innocence of her right hand, Raffy swoops in and cross his sword between the two women, driving Illiiya back with the flat of the blade.

    "You get out this second!"

    As soon as the two are separated he turns to Maria, letting his sword fall to the floor, and (perhaps too forwardly) places his hands on her two arms, gently putting her right hand back down as if to say it wasn't necessary for her to show it. "Are you alright? Maria, are you alright?"

    Maria drew sharply away, steadying herself with one hand against the wall as she held the other out between herself and the others. Her head angled slightly to one side, she stared back at Raffy with wide, angry eyes.

    “What – apart from being turned into a, an overgrown firefly? Yes. I’m fine.” Her voice shook a little, her clothes still lighting up the room. She pointed across the room. “Your money is in the drawer over there, Mr Rafale. I don’t know why you left it here anyway. Please, take your friends and go.

    “Come along now, sirs,” echoed the servant, clearly a little unsure about the sudden show of swords and violence...

    "Or just find another place to stay for a few days," said Pieter with a nod. "No locked door seems to stop the murderer."

    His voice was cool, even remote. He felt the need to apologize but knew that now was hardly the time, no matter the words he used.

    Illiiya Jaelrae

    Won't trust you... They'll all betray you... They'll choose her over you. Stupid thing... I told you all these things. Why are you surprised?

    P-Pieter? Not you too. I was right... Illiiya muttered dumbfounded, staring at Pieter. She had expected as much from Raffy, perhaps even Lothar... but not from him.

    No. No! Look at yourselves! She yelled, her pale face going red in anger as a hate she'd not felt in a long time boiled to the surface, I did nothing... NOTHING... to harm her. Not a hair out of place... and look how quickly you leap to defend her! Look how quick she is to send us away! She won't come with us to the guardhouse, because she is GUILTY! She. is. CONTROLLING YOU!

    Illiiya shook slightly, with malice in her eyes like none of them had ever seen before.

    Not a one of you would trust me. Not one! Well I am done with you all! *I* will get the witch hunter, and the priests... and I will bring them here myself! You can't control me, you arrogant, human whore... and you are NOT getting away with this. Illiiya growled at Maria venomously, This is not done yet.

    OOC: Barring the group assaulting her as she goes. Illiiya is leaving the place and heading RIGHT for the church/temple/wherever the witch hunter and priests are. Marius would end up as mind-screwed as everyone else, but she's hoping the Lector or the witch hunter can resist chaos' call. I honestly am a little sad that even Pieter didn't.

    Lothar raised his arms defensively, stepping back from the whole mess. "Ith, do what y'like to that one- but what 'bout Illiiya?" He turned, reaching, as the elven witch fled the scene-- "Ill- wait, dammit. We aren't--"

    "Ranald's soddin' --- uh. Um," the soldier looked from Maria, to the elf with a knife to Pieter's throat, to the door. "Uh, that is to say, 'Ranald's luck.' Right. Blast and britches..." he mumbled, looking at his boots.

    Stop!” shouted Maria. “Put the weapons away and just – just stop. Or so help me, I’ll be the one calling the guards.”

    Pushing past Raffy, she moved to intercept Illiiya, confrontation written on her face.

    “You want to go to Jagrun, Illiiya? Go. But the man’s looking for a sorcerer, and if you bring him here on this – this insane suspicion of yours, I’ll have to tell him where he can find one.” She stared into Illiiya’s eyes, biting back more words. “Are we clear?”

    Why so afraid to see the hunter, whore? You can act as smug as you want, but we saw that fear in your eyes.

    Maria stared open-mouthed in Illiiya's wake. Recovering as quickly as she could, she turned to Raffy, a pleading look in her eyes.

    "Rafale - please, go after her. Make her see sense! If Jagrun gets the notion that - it doesn't matter what she says, he'll come down on us all. The Society, everything, innocent or not. Pieter, you t..."

    She noticed the stand-off between Pieter and the elf had not ceased. Her voice cracked a little under the stress, rising to a high-pitched shout.

    Raffy the Sparrowhawk

    Raffy's eyes fill with a look of abject pain as Maria orders him and his "friends" away.

    He stands transfixed, until he Maria pleas for him to go after Illiiya--a sign that she still has some trust for him, and a chance perhaps to redeem himself. He gives an obedient nod, like a soldier, and almost cartwheels to grab his sword as he goes for the door.

    Before he exits the room, he looks back at the others. "Ithelus," he says.

    "You're the only one who can talk to her."

    The fact that he is holding his bared sword in one hand might even make this an ultimatum. Or it could just be bad wording. Either way, the Sparrowhawk is gone in a flash - his money still in Maria's drawer - as he races after Illiiya.

    ((Here's hoping that longer legs let me catch her well before the guard house.))

    I'll sheathe the sword as I run, and ready my net instead. My actions when I reach Illiiya depend on whether Ith is coming too, so I'll wait to see if he does.

    "And if you ever draw a weapon against me again," Pieter countered between clenched teeth, "you had better kill me."

    Louder he said: "You're right, witch hunters have ways of detecting the ruinous powers. Like trial by fire. Or by combat. Because surely Sigmar wouldn't let an innocent die, would he? Witch hunters are known for their great sense of justice." He grunted. "Go after her and bring her back, Ithelus. If you think innocence is enough to stop a witch hunter from burning someone, I've got a wall to sell you in Cathay."

    He turned to Maria, his expression softening slightly.

    Once outside Ithelus will see that Raffy has put away his sword but does have his net in his hands as he chases after Illiiya.

    "Ith! Talk to her!" he calls as his feet pound on the pavement.
    I just published my first novella, Lúnasa Days, a modern fantasy with a subtle, uncertain magic.

    You can grab it on Kindle or paperback.

    With an irritated sigh, Pieter muttered a quick goodbye to Maria and tried to follow Illiiya outside. Better get this foolishness over with before Raffy and Ithelus came to blows.

    Ithelus catches up to Illiiya and grabs her by the shoulders. 'Illiiya, calm down. Whats going on? What was that? What did you do?'

    Illiiya Jaelrae

    Stay away, Asur. We can trust none of you.

    Illiiya did not cease her brisk pace, but made no motion to avoid Ithelus or the others.

    You should know a bluff better than anyone. She told Ithelus, intently, She is guilty. I KNOW she is g-guilty! I told her that my spell would burn the corrupt and look how she panicked! She threatened me... turned everyone against me... d-did EVERYTHING she could to keep me from going to the priests, because she knows they'll be able to reveal the chaos mark she has on her hand. She is GUILTY Ith. I am going to prove it.

    'Illiiya, look. I believe you when you say that something is wrong about Maria, I always have. But you have to have a plan. You can't go marching into someone's house and begin messing around with magic, there are less direct ways to do this that puts you out of harm's way! You are going to a witch hunter after, by the word of the law, assaulting a noble!'

    He grabs her by the arm and looks her directly in the eyes,

    'Look, we can work out a plan, leave a false trail that brings Maria into suspicion with the Witch hunter.... Just don't put yourself in danger.'

    "Framing Maria?" said Pieter, his voice chilling. "I'm not going to allow this, Ithelus. The witch hunter already dislikes her. Give him an excuse and he'll have her burned. And the Society will go down with her."

    He folded his arms over his chest.

    "We will stop the killer, and we will do it without the witch hunter's help. He's not our ally, he's only the lesser of two evils."

    Or maybe three.

    Raffy the Sparrowhawk

    Raffy joins the others. His net is still in his hands. With a look of suppressed anger, he says:

    "I agree... with Pieter."

    Illiiya Jaelrae

    Can't trust the humans.

    No. Illiiya said intently, giving Pieter and Raffy a glare, I can't trust you. Either of you. She's controlling you both. You won't even stop to CONSIDER that she's involved. I didn't hurt her one bit... so p-piss on your "assaulting a noble" idea. The only violent ones in there... were you.

    OOC: Illiiya's not being deterred. Bring on the church-types! That is, unless the group wishes to physically assault her to keep her from doing that... but that would really just further prove it to her that you're all not acting right.

    At least Lothar and Ith are being reasonable.

    "Whether or not Maria is guilty of anything isn't the point," snapped Pieter. "But we're not bringing the witch hunter into this. That's exactly why I'm helping you: to make sure the Sigmarites don't claim credit for finding the murderer. They'll just use it to justify even more oppression. If you want to involve them, count me out, I'll do this on my own."

    He started to walk away.

    "I've got some leads I want to investigate. Can we meet at the North Wind at the second bell after noon? I must have a word with Klaus, anyway."
