Location: Eden, Noveria
Speaking with: Brookelle, Jasper, Eli, and Kostro
“Where’s Jasper?” She had looked away just a moment, and her elder brother was gone! Shouldn’t things be the other way around…Her being the one he had to keep an eye on?! Then she noticed his rider-less horse near the stall where the man had stolen the jerky from. She caught a glimpse of her twin brother and the arm that grabbed him and yanked him back into the alley. “Bloody hell!” She hissed and slipped down from her own horse.
“I think that thief has my brother.” Her stupid brother…She loved him, but if she wasn’t trying to ride the man down, what possessed Jasper to go confront him? It was reckless and stupid, and just the sort of thing she wanted to do, but her brother had beaten her to it!
She grabbed her bow from her saddle, and the quiver of arrows, slinging them over her shoulder. She had the knife in her boot. Likely the man was watching the mouth of the alley. Instead, she used a stall as a ladder and climbed onto a balcony, then up to the roof. It wasn’t hard for her to get across the roofs to one overlooking the alley, and sure enough, he was holding her brother at knifepoint! She was tempted to shoot him where he stood, but she didn’t trust herself to not hit her brother. Next best thing…
His back was to her. She was silent as she moved onto the ledge and dropped down onto a small balcony without a sound that could be heard over the noise of the market outside the alley. She climbed onto the railing around the balcony and pulled the knife from her boot before she held it between her teeth and began to hang from the bottom of the balcony. The man was backing up towards her. She bent her knees so he wouldn’t brush against her toes and when she saw the knife he was holding to her brother’s neck she dropped down, her heel kicking into the wrist that held the knife as hard as she could as she tightened her knees against his head. One hand went for the hilt of her knife as the other hand grabbed his hair and yanked back so he could see the knife the girl was about to send into his eye if he gave her a reason.
“I’m the only one allowed to pull a blade on my brother!”
