Jokul Frosti: *makes frost grow in your cell* hello warden
The Warden: [looks around, narrows eyes]
TO WHAT DO I OWE THE PLEASURE, JOKUL FROSTI?
Toshioka Kiri: Mmmm… I feel like I was dreaming about being on a boat… head feels like it too…
I’m in prison. At the fortress. What am I doing in prison at the fortress? What happened? How did I get here?
Hey!! Someone tell me what happened!!
Treepelt Halfpaw: [looks around, listens, sees nobody in the cell and can’t hear anything in the hallway]
[slips keys out from the folds of her clothing and unlocks the handcuffs]
[whispers to self] I can’t stay here.
NOT WHEN EVERYONE IS SO CLOSE TO YOU…YOU ENDANGER THEM BY MERELY KNOWING THEIR NAMES.
[sighs and closes eyes]
I’m sorry, my King.
[RUNS OUT OF THE ROOM AND STARTS MAKING HER WAY OUT OF CAMP]
#tree is sneaky, watch your belt next time chief of the stoic hearts, you never know,when you'll lose something, if crap's gonna happen it has to happen now,
Seasick: So Tree just escaped…
WHERE ARE THE GOD DAMN GUARDS? I THOUGHT KING SAID THERE WERE GUARDS AND THAT SHE WAS CHAINED ????//
sERIOUSLY WHO THE HELL IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS???
#gdi king of all the times to leave lmao
Asha: Did anyone hear that?
Toshioka Kiri: *sees Tree run past through bars of cell*
Hemlock: Oh, Odin.
*detaches self from the edge of the hall and rams into Tree* (haha what do you mean why was i slipping by tree’s cell in the middle of the night i was just heading to my library which is coincidentally nowhere near her cell i’m completely innocent what are you talking about haha)
Tree, you don’t have control. Believe me when I say that the Warden will take over again, and when it does, you’ll be endangering all of us even more so. Tree, please, listen to me. *slowly and cautiously unsheathes knife behind my back*
Jokul Frosti: *makes the ground all ice* What do you think you're doing? You're not thinking about running away are you?
Treepelt Halfpaw: [slowly backs up] F-frosty…please, you have to let me go. I can’t let something like that happen again. Just%5]4]]/~

[shoves aside and keeps running]
#I DARE YOU TO STOP ME#YOU'LL END UP LIKE YOUR FRIEND
Jokul Frosti: HEY! *freezes you to the ground* we can help you tree. You just have to let us try. I promise no one's going to get hurt again.
The Warden: I SAID
[SWIPES WILDLY AT FROSTY]
Jokul Frosti: *lunges at Tree and pins her down* not a chance. I NEED BACK UP!
Warren: *ears twitch*
Backup needed! I think it’s Frosty! *sprints around the corner*
Seasick: I’M HERE! WHAT CAN I DO?
The Warden: [both phrases said at the same time]
LET HER GO!/LET ME GO!
[swipes at Frosty again and runs off]
#JUST#NO#LEAVE ME ALONE#I'M GOING TO HURT SOMEONE AGAIN
Jokul Frosti: *tries to dodge and falls*
QUICK! DON’T LET HER ESCAPE!
Seasick: You get your ass back here right now. *chases after*
Asha: Gaaaah, where’s my dragon when I need her?!
Nate: You see a dark figure emerge from the clouds above. It’s a dragon, a skrill to be exact. Then you see a rider. He looks familiar. They land
“Hello, after escaping the prison 7 days ago I ran and didn’t look back. After 4 days of searching I have been reunited with my dragon. I have decided to return and help in the fight.”
Asha: Hello. What’s your name?
Nate: My name is Nate.
Asha: Hello Nate. I am Asha. And what’s your Skrill’s name?
Asha: Interesting name. My Stormcutter is Moonbeam, but I can’t find her anywhere.
Did you see where Tree went, Nate?
Nate: I saw her run down a dark hall to the east.
Asha: …will you come with me to check it out? I want to make sure she’s okay.
Or as okay as she can get.
Nate: It would be my pleasure. Let’s head out.
Asha: Alright, let’s go, Nate. *heads towards the east*
Nate: The passage is incredibly dark. My skrill will have to use his lighting somehow to light it up.
Asha: If only Moonbeam was here… she could help… anyway, let’s see what your dragon can do, Nate.
Hopefully he won’t blow us up with his lightning.
…he won’t, will he?
Nate: No. He’s been with for quite some time now. We would never hurt each other.
Alright rythian give it a shot.
Skrill shoots some lightning down the long hall hitting a wall scone which illuminates with a blast. If ryrhian could shoot the wall sconces and we each carry one we should be fine.
Pitch Black: Why did you run? Must I clean up all your messes?!? *pulls you into a dark passage*
Treepelt Halfpaw: [shrieks at the touch, then sees the same stranger from before]
Wh-what are you—?
MY TIME CAME, STRANGER. YOU CERTAINLY TOOK YOURS.
Pitch Black: I had to connections to make... Since you've seen to lost yours! *glares from under the hood*
The Warden: [spits] YOU’RE LUCKY I’M NOT SLITTING YOUR THROAT RIGHT NOW. KEEP A CIVIL TONGUE OR THIS WILL NOT END WELL FOR EITHER OF US.
[blinks] I’m sorry…just…lead the way.
Pitch Black: And your temper annoys me but follow... Remember I will not save you a second time! *pulls you along passage using a dragon blade*
Treepelt Halfpaw: [stumbles along, still weak from imprisonment] Where are we going?
Pitch Black: Now it is your turn... Tree? *looks around the passage*
Treepelt Halfpaw: I’m here…
AND SO AM I. TELL ME WHAT IS GOING ON, STRANGER.
