Jaque and Dian

“Jaque, where are you?”

“Be quiet, I’m over here, Dian.”

The Wolfen woman looked in the darkness for the one she’d called Jaque, but she couldn’t see him anywhere.

“Where…” she began again, but strong hands latched onto her and only a slight squeak escaped before her mouth was firmly shut by the person behind her. She struggled for a moment before he said, “Be still, Dian, or do you want them to find us?”

She stilled in his arms and snuggled against him as they heard the followers of Terosh crashing through the woods around them. After what seemed like hours, the woods finally quieted down. Neither of them spoke as they rose to their feet and began to run away.

The sky had just begun to lighten as dawn approached when a shadowy figured leaped out at them from a stand of trees they’d just passed.

“We’ve got them,” one of the humans called out.

“Terosh will be pleased we didn’t let them get away.”

“Dian,” Jaque called, “take the bag and run! Get out of here!” he said as he tossed the sack of items they’d taken from Terosh.

She hesitated for only a moment before she began to run as fast as she could, tears streaming down her face.

“Your master has lost,” Jaque said, grinning at the men holding him.

“Oh, he hasn’t lost anything yet,” Terrosh said as he walked out of the woods. “We’ll get those trinkets back, and when we do, you and your girlfriend will pay dearly for troubling me.”

  • Just a little ditty ’bout Jaque and Dian, two kids doin’ the best they can.

  • I wonder what “tiny” trinkets they absconded with?

    Perhaps they are enroute to potential allies of CrIsis?

  • The items are just some of the many skulls of the fallen victims that you shall soon join (insert evil GM laugh here)

  • I do like ye olde cougar mellencamp reference….
