Evane's journal Entry 10-12Alistair didn't know how long he had stood in that forest. He was frozen in time. When he did finally get back to the fortress he sat in his room and thought of Evane, the words he had left unsaid the pain he never helped resolve. He was positive she blamed him for all of it. He just wanted one more day with her. One more day to let her know it wasn't her fault. Nobody could tell him what to do. Why couldn't he have realized that sooner? That would be a guilt he would carry with him for the rest of his life, however long or short that might be. Again the journal was opened on the desk. He stared at it not really seeing the words or any of it for that matter. He was just staring. He had reasons to stay. But then again, he also had reasons to go. He wanted to be reunited with her. And there was only one way to do it. He fingered the knife he had been holding for an hour now. He had found another package after he returned from the forest. The letter 'Z' was written on it with the words 'I
The Wolf and the Hawke"What am I doing here?" Zora Hawke turned away from the decrepit door. "But what if he wants to talk to me too?" She turned back to it. "No. If he wanted to talk with me he'd just come over." She started away again. "But he could have wanted me to come over instead." And back around. "But maybe he doesn't want me to come over." She started away another time.
"Hawke." The cool voice came from a window of the almost abandoned mansion behind her.
She shut her eyes tightly refusing to look at him. 'He was watching me this whole time.'
"Hawke. I know you heard me. Turn around." It was neither a question nor a command but more of a firm suggestion. "Hawke, I will go over there." She still didn't move. "Fine then."
He jumped down from the window, landed gracefully on his feet and started towards her. But she still refused to turn around. Finally he stood directly in front of her and she could no longer ignore him. "Hey Fenris. How long have you been watching me?"
"Well I've seen you every nig
Revenge of a Broken Elf"Where am I?" Her voice sounded hollow even to her own ears. She didn't care where she was. 'Looks like a cave. Wonder if Alistair is around we should really get back to whatever it was we were doing before this.' It had been nearly 3 months since she had joined the Wardens and left her clan. When she reached the cave's mouth she looked around confused. 'We weren't anywhere near this forest. I know this forest well and we were at least 4 days from it Or No we've been camped in this forest the last week. What am I thinking? I should go find the Keeper.' After walking for a few steps she suddenly had the feeling that she was being watched. But every time she turned nothing would be there. So she decided on a different tactic. Using her natural rouge abilities she went into stealth after tuning a corner and waited. She saw the person following her but not their face. 'Male. Elf, I think, and No way. He is not sneaking up on me.' She waited one breath two
Bad Dreams"Tamlen, Tamlen where are you?" 'How did I get here? No, that's not important. Where is he?'
Fear was creeping into Victoria's head. 'What if he isn't here? No that's not right this is his home he should be here. I'll go ask the Keeper.' She walked to where the Keeper Marethari stood just outside her tent. She was hesitant at first. Something was going to go wrong here. But her need to know where Tamlen was outweighed her gut feeling. "Keeper?"
Marethari looked up from her book she had been reading. "Yes child what is it?"
"I was wondering if you have seen Tamlen we were going to go out for his birthday."
"Of course. How could I forget? He is by the fire speaking with the other hunters about a great feat or something of that caliber. Go speak with him if you would like. You have this day off from your duties do not waste it." She thanked her as she should and went towards the fire trying to shake the bad feelings she was getting.
She wasn't even at the fire yet and she could
Anders silenceAnders was pacing across the clinic. It had been empty for three days. Not even a visit from Isabella. He stopped and sat on a cot. 'Where is everyone? It's been almost a week since Hawke got back from the Deep Roads but I still haven't seen her. Come to think of it Bethany hasn't stopped by either. Maybe I should go check on them. They should be in Hightown now, Right?'
'You shouldn't waste our time looking for Hawke we should free more mages.'
'And you expect me to do it all by myself?'
'We can just as we had done before she came along.'
'She's a friend.'
'She's an obsession. She is happy with the elf. Leave her alone.'
'You sound almost protective of her.'
'No I couldn't care less. I say only what will make you stay on the path of the mages freedom.'
'I really don't care what you want me to do I will go and see her end of discussion.'
'The estate's empty.'
'Good then we can leave now.'
'No I want to know where she is.'
'This is unnecessary.'
'Then you think of a pla
The Calm After the Storm"Hawke! Hawke!" Fenris swore to himself quietly as he saw Hawke increase her speed out of Hightown. 'That woman will be the death of me.' He picked up his pace. They both carried greatswords and had similar talents but somehow she could always just disappear in the blink of an eye. 'Must of come from years of running from the Templars.' True he had also been a fugitive and had often run. But when it came right down to it he could always just kill whoever was after him. 'She never had that option.' He swore again. "Where did she go?"
Then he saw it. It was brief but he saw a flash of her impossibly long and dark hair disappearing into an alley way alone. Or so he thought. As he drew nearer he heard the clash of metal and the slight squish sound of swords decapitating bodies. "Not again." Fenris rushed into the alleyway and saw the last thug, who was obviously the leader, standing over Hawke a sword poised to stab her. His markings started to glow and an animal instinct came over him as
