    The Winter Thaw



    The White Peaks loomed tall in the distance as the wagon continued its rumbling progression toward the boarder lands of Avelar. It was quiet going, at least now that their charge was bound and gagged. It had been half a day and one since the journey began and her forced destination was finally coming into view. It was a quaint farm, neither too large nor too small, but to her it may as well have been some horrid hovel in the middle of nowhere.

    Half risen from the wagon floor, Arayna eyed the dismal location through the split rails of the side coolly, giving a muffled complaint punctuated by a barking grunt as the toe of a boot struck her soundly in the side. “I said stay quiet!” One of the guards assigned to the escort rumbled, glowering down at her. “You’ve caused enough trouble on this trip. If the Commander is smart, he’ll keep you bound and quiet too.”

    When the driver pulled up the horse, two of the guards escorting them jumped out and proceeded to drag the woman off the back letting her drop heavy to the ground while the third stepped down from the front and moved to greet the the farm’s owner, Volare. “Apologies, Commander, I know you were hoping for some peace of mind out here.” He glanced back at the others as they cut loose her ankle bindings and drug her to her knees. “She’s more trouble than she’s worth.” That said, he produced a heavy coin purse and a sealed writ naming Volare ward and master of the woman’s fate. “By order of the Snow Chief, you may exercise whatever means necessary, barring death, to gain her compliance.”

    Despite the sizable fading bruise along the left side of her face where a sound backhand had sent her reeling just days before and now looking like she had been half drug through the muck, she knelt before them somehow managing to retain an air of of prideful defiance, eyeing the two men coldly. Regarding them in silence, she gave her bound wrists a slight twist but otherwise remained motionless as the guard who addressed Volare strode back to her. Taking hold of her chin roughly, he forced her face to look up at him. “You’re the Commander’s problem now, you wicked little bitch, and I assure you that he can be far less forgiving than I am.”

    Volare has been dreading this day all week. He had hoped he'd be free of the viper's nest that was Elven politics once he retired. Be away from Queen Brightcloth and her Mage Lords, maybe find a nice Wood Elf or maybe Orcish woman to keep him company in his golden years. Someone sturdy and able to live off the land.

    But not a month into his retirement and word came down from his former Lord that his daughter Arayna had used up her last chance and was being exiled far from the trappings of civilization to learn humility or something according to Rivvan. But the Snow Chief didn't want her to die day one so here she was dropped for him to train and keep his eyes on. He heard them cross his property line and met them just before his horse paddocks.

    He watched with crossed arms and somewhat tired eyes as the two guard pulled her out of the wagon and tossed her into the dirt before him before heading off. The woman stared at him with vehemence and he simply cut her hand binds and removed the gag. "Welcome to Frostfire Farm Arayna, middle of no where and no where to run." He pulled her to her feet.

    The woman teetered a bit before finding her footing then pulled away from him in a huff once she was steady. With a poor attempt to brush the dirt from her garments in a motion more for show than anything else, she spoke. “Do forgive me for not leaping for joy, it’s been a trying journey.” She let her gaze take in her bleak surroundings for a moment before stooping to retrieve the satchel containing her meager belongings.


    Straightening, she set her sights once more on him. He seemed almost as displeased about the arrangement as she was. Placing a hand on her hip, her voice dripped with sarcasm as she continued. “I know you’re obviously as thrilled with my being here as I am, Commander, but be a dear and at least try to contain your enthusiasm.” Looking beyond him to the farmhouse, she shook her head and sighed as she began to walk. “Shall we then?”

    Volare watched the woman closely. "We all pay for our sins Arayna." He pulled out short briarwood pipe and loaded the bowl with tobacco and lit it allowing the smoke to waft slowly up around his head. "First off you need a bath. I keep a clean house and you stink like ten days of bad road."

    He motioned for the woman to follow him around the backside of the house. He had a small pond of clear water which irrigates his six fields of vegetables. It was deep enough to be fully submerged in. Picking up a couple of his tools he clicked his tongue for her to strip and bathe while he grabbed a clean blanket off his clothesline and placed it on a barrel for her to dry herself with before he moved off to work the field of carrots. "Strip down and clean yourself up, it's cold, but nothing compared to the Glacial Sea."

    Arayna frowned, but followed him behind his house only to frown harder when she saw the pond. Brooding over her less than favorable accommodations, she made well sure that she was out of his immediate line of sight. Muttering to herself, she peeled off her filthy raiments. "It's a wonder you still bother to bathe at all out here, there's not even a proper bath house..." She stepped into the chill water and leered in his general direction. "Cold? You fool, it's freezing!" With a hissing breath through her teeth, she reluctantly waded in.

    Finally submerged, she quickly set to scrubbing herself clean, wanting to be done as quick but thorough as possible. Once finished, she hastily removed herself from the pond snatched the blanket off the barrel, wrapping it tight around herself. Whether her haste was more for the cold or more to keep him from glimpsing more of her than he may have already, she herself wasn't entirely certain. What she did know, however, was that the insult and embarrassment were starting to show by the slight reddening of her face.

    The old Elf chuckled shaking his head slowly at the woman's embarrassment. He'd seen glimpses of her naked body and it wasn't anything to be embarrassed by and they'll be living together for a bit so nakedness would be a obstacle they would need to overcome sooner or later. "You're a Snow Elf suck it up young miss."

    He continued to work his field until her heard her exit the pond. "I don't know if you brought any warm clothes with you Ms. Wraithhearted, but in the house just inside the back door are a warm fur skirt and top for you to change into. Might be a little big, but they'll do a lot more good than those filthy ones you came in."

    She gave an indignant scoff at having her complaint brushed off in such a manner. With pursed lips, she shook her head and stepped in through the back door. She wasn't thrilled about wearing strange and ill-fit clothes, but anything was a step up front the rough spin items she was sent away with. Those may have well been little more than sack-cloth.

    She let the blanket fall to the floor around her feet and examined the garments. They were a far cry from the regal raiments she was accustomed to, but it was better than nothing. Sighing heavily, she pulled them on. Even tied as snug as she could manage, the skirt of furs still hung low on her hips. Luckily, the loose top manage to still cover most of her.

    They were much better than the clothes she arrived in, but she didn't even want to think of how she must have looked. For the briefest of instances, she was thankful for the distance put between her and the high courts. Steeling herself, she stepped back outside and fished a silver brush from the satchel she left on top of another barrel.

    She was surprisingly quiet while she began to brush out and then braid her still damp hair. Finishing the braid so that it fell over her slender shoulder, she finally broke the silence. "You don't have to call me that, you know... Being stripped of my rightful surname was bad enough, I don't need to be reminded of it."

    Volare shrugged, but nodded at her request. "As you wish Arayna." He turned and studied her closely. He had to guess her size when making the clothes. They were a little tight around her chest and rear, but flattered the woman's lithe body well so he would call it a success. "The clothing suits you lass, now come I will settle you into your room." He finished up his work in the small field and puffed softly on his pipe walking back his charge heading deeper into the house.

    The house was well built as is everything made by Snow Elves, but more simplistic than the main city. A single story and mostly filled with a large single room where the kitchen, dining room, and living room were one. Off to the right was a hallway with small storage closets and weapons racks breaking up the dark wood walls at the end were two larger doors obviously bedrooms. Walking slowly on he stopped at the hall and point over his right shoulder. "This room is mine." He then opened the door in front of him and motioned for her to enter. "And this is yours." It was a simple room with a single bed big enough for two people, a vanity stand/dresser, wash area, a small table with a chair, and an empty closet.

    The inside of the house was just as she had expected it would be, save for an animal head or two not being mounted on the wall. Rolling her eyes, she mused. “Not much for decorating are you, old Mer?” Even in such a modest home, she had at least hoped to see a shelf of books or perhaps an instrument of some sort to pass the evening hours.

    Stepping into her room, she forced a mirthless smiles. “I suppose it's foolish to hope for much better than this from a dusty war-dog.” Her snide tone grew as she turned once more to face him. “Now, if you don't mind, I've had just as much excitement as I care to stand for one day and I wish to rest.”

    With a quirk of his eyebrow Volare's hand came up and smacked the back of the woman's head. Stepping closer he stared into her eyes gripping her chin making her look at him. "Listen here young woman. You may have been a Chief's daughter in the past, but in this house you are a commoner and by extension my charge. You will work and earn your place here, either by getting dirt on your hands in the fields, keeping the house clean, or popping out some kids. If you can't handle either of those then feel free to run, but you will be killed out in the wild. Bandits in this no man's land are quite skilled even against Mages."

    He kept his eyes on her and nodded to the room. "Go rest, I'll call you when dinner is ready." With that he moved back down the hall beginning dinner prep.
