Post RavenFire Island part XXVII (( Please PM to join:::OPEN:::))
OCC: Please PM me if you would like to join the thread. I will have Relor send for the boat to pick you up.

You notice as you wait around in the dock area a few long piers. At the beginning of oh the furthest pier you see a large sign. The large sign states that a boat will take you to an Island retreat run by the Lady Ravenfire of CRoW. As you walk to the end of the pier, you see a small both with another sign of it. This sign states the rules of the Island. You read as follows.

The rules are very simple.


1. Weapons will be left check before stepping onto the boat and they will be returned when you return back to this very pier.
2. There will be NO disorderly conduct permitted on the island. This will be strictly enforced. You will be
thrown into the water and allowed to swim back should you break this rule.
3. Remember...this is a place to relax and mingle with other people. Leave your faith on the pier and pick it
up with your weapons when you leave.
4. HAVE FUN! (Strictly enforced also)



As you look around you must find Relor to let him know that you would like passage to the Island. You look around for the pier that the boat is suppose to dock on. But there is nothing there, the pier has seemingly vanished.

As you look back at the sign that says " This way to RavenFire Island" you notice that there is a smaller sign at the bottom that says gone to the Island for a wedding. Please go to the Inn across the street and they will take care of you till we return.

She was excited to say the least she even did up her heair like she had seen many do for special occassions. She felt a little foolish though she did not know the first thing about social events other than how to serve at them. But to say the elast she was excited. She waited patiently for Relor to get ready. While she sat there thinking waiting on him she started to drift off wondering if one day she would ever be married. She doubted it who would want a run away slave as a wife. Most men would want someone purer and probably a woman who had not laid with men like she had. Though none of hers had been by choice. The only choice she had ever made was to lay next to Relor on the pier other than that the stuff she had done before meeting Relor for the most part had been out of her control.

Relor was not out of the bath and was all tried up. He threw the towel to the ground and quickly did his hair as best he could and came out to the room where Kayli was. She looked ravishing with her hair up the way that she had placed it.

You look amazing Kayli, I almost have to go and get another suit to were to this function now. Relor laughed out loud. There is no time to do that right now. Come we must go I think that we are late.

Relor extended his arm so that Kayli could walk with him arm in arm all the way done to the location where the wedding was to be held. He walked proudly, head high and a look of confidence that oozed from him. He wore a big smile on his face as he looked toward Kayli. He still could not believe that she had agreed to join him on the Island, let alone escort him to the wedding.

She shyly took his arm and was a slight shade of red. She had turned red when he had siad she looked amazing. She smiled and looked at him what was it men were when they were nice looking. Handsome that is the word he was looking for. She smiled.

Thank you Relor, you look very handsome. I hope we are not too late Iam pretty excited about this. I mean I think weddings are amazing though I have not been to one before. Do you know if the couple had come here together or if they had met on the island? The island looks like a nice place though later maybe we will get to see more of it. And to meet other people here. I am sure you know all of them or almost all them.


She followed his lead the whole way. She was still a bitunsure of herself.

Relor smiled when she had said that he was handsome. He did not get those kinds of compliments very often working at the pier on the mainland. Actually, he could not remember when the last time that he has told this. It did not matter, what did matter was that Kayli had said it and he was happy with that.

As he looked toward her with his bright smile, he noticed that she was not as comfortable with this whole situation, but he mentioned nothing to her, She had to get use to the fact that she was not a slave anymore nd that she could do what she wanted. She would blossom into a wondrous women given enough time. Relor knew this, and the Island would be a best place to start.

They reached there destination and then Relor pointed to two seats at the back. He motioned Kayli to go first and then he sat next to her. Lord Tiamat was at the front with the happy couple. Relor looked at them and he answered one of Kayli's questions from before.

You had asked me if the couple had come together, and now that I see them together I can tell you that they both came here on different voyages from the ship. So they must have met here on the Island. This is so exiting. Another couple fall in love on the Island

She smiled and took the seat. She watched the couple. Listening to Relor she smiled and looked at him and spoke quietly.

Have many couples fallen in love here. I can't imagine the surprise that they must of had to fall in love here. Though seeing this island I can see how easy it would be to fall in love here. Do you always get to come in when there are weddings here? I am sorry if I am asking a lot of questions.

She was nervous she did not know why. This was all exciting to her though. She smiled and leaned close to him. SHe felt most confortable when close to him. She did not even realize how close she had scooted to him.

Hmm yeah that is a lot of question, but thankfully all on the same subject. I cannot remember the last wedding that was held on the Island to be honest. I was not here when it happened. As for coming to all the weddings, well since this is the first wedding on the Island since I am here, then yeah I can say that I have been to every wedding on the Island.

Relor laughed when he finished off his phrase. It was the truth, but it was also a catch as there were no other weddings that he could have attended. So he did not know if he would be invited back for any other weddings.

She smiled and listened to him she liked listening to hsi voice. She was not used to hearing a voice and not being afraid of it especially a male voice that close. She smiled and settled in her seat still feeling a little uncomfortable. She looked at him and nodded.

I guess then you will find out in the future if you are invited to all the ones on the island or not. That dress she is wearing is very pretty. I have never seen anyhting so beautiful.

Nyteshade listened as Dante quickly explained that he had stumbled onto the Island by pure coincidence. She noted that he had carefully avoided questioning her about her past, and for that she was intensely greatful. She flashed him a genuinely sweet smile as she spoke softly.

Then surely it was my good fortune that you stumbled across that pamphlet. Forgive me if I am bold, but I find myself enjoying your company very much.

The two of them entered the food hut while they spoke, only to find it completely deserted. Nyteshade looked about in confusion, and then she realized that everyone must be in attendance at the wedding. Sighing softly, she turned to Dante once more, speaking in disappointment.

Well m'Lord, it seems that everyone is at the wedding ceremony. If we wish to eat, we must fend for ourselves somehow, or wait until the wedding is over and the feast is begun. I'm not sure which direction your thoughts lie, but I think I'd rather not join a large group of people celebrating a wedding.

Nyteshade's voice had grown pained as she talked about the wedding and the feast which would take place afterwards. She was not conscious of it, but it was there nonetheless. She only hoped that Dante would understand, for she truly had been enjoying his companionship. Unlike most people, he seemed to sense that there was a great deal of darkness in her past, and he was content not to pressure her into speaking of it. It had been some time since she had felt relaxed, but somehow he had managed to make her feel that way, if only for a short time.

After the incident with Nyteshade at the dock, Tiamat had been called away on some business. Nyteshade had wandered off with Dante, another of the Island's newcomers, in search of sustenance. That left Xena basically alone on the dock, trying to handle both of the babes. She soon decided that she would have to return them to the manor, if she and the others were going to be able to enjoy the wedding ceremony in peace.

As she searched for, and found, a portal she could use to take the children home to their nanny, it also occurred to her that she and Tiamat did not have a wedding gift for the happy couple. She thought about it, and after she relinqueshed the children to the nanny, she headed towards the room she shared with Tiamat, and tried to come up with an idea for a suitable gift. And then, remembering a very special gift she had received at one time, she almost laughed with relief as she realized that she indeed did have a wonderful present for the couple. It was something she'd brought with her from Tiamat's estate because she'd wanted to keep it near to her for safe-keeping. It was something very precious and rare, and stemmed from the very present she'd received so long ago. Xena left her room and worked quickly to get the present ready to give to the bride and groom. She hoped that they would care for it as much as she herself did, for it was not every day that one was gifted with a dragon's egg. Of course she had no idea how much longer it would be before it hatched, but she'd had it for quite some time, so hopefully the new owners wouldn't have to wait very long before they had their own baby dragon to love and care for.

Satisfied that all was ready, and that she'd come up with the perfect present to give to them on behalf of herself and Tiamat, Xena carried the box which held the egg, and whistled happily to herself as she returned to the other side of the Island. She carried the box carefully, and found a table upon which she could safely set it, before she found a seat amongst the guests and waited for the wedding to begin.

She was very much surprised to find that Tiamat was the one leading the bride down the aisle towards the waiting groom. Spying the very pleased smile upon his face, Xena could only surmise that what he was doing was reminding him of the time he had waited at the end of the aisle for Xena on their wedding day. In fact, as Xena waited with the others for the wedding ceremony to begin, she began to reminisce about her own wedding to Tiamat. It had been one of the happiest days of her life, and she would always keep the memory of that day close to her heart.

I tend to avoid big crowds as well. There are always to much people there. But that is why they are big crowds..

I shall stay here in the hut with you. It's best if you did not dine alone.

The wedding itself seemed to be much of an event, for them to worry about 2 people. Its not like we are going to be missed, for we just came here.

Something to munch on would be good. The feast after the wedding has emptied the hut.

I try not to think of Nyteshade. She harvest a lot of thoughts inside her. Its good to keep things to one, but to much tends to rip that person from the inside. I hope that after time passes by, she could tell me. Not now. We do not know ourselfs well enough to have that kind of trust.

We found a nice table that had a nice view.

What other places does this island have?

You told me you were once a visitor here. I wonder if you could tell me more of this place.

As Tiamat finally gave away Tyihel to TJ to take over he took two steps back and then turned and went over to where Xena had seated herself. He had a big smile on his face as he waked up to her.

You know honey that one day I am going to have to do that for Areaa. It was good practice for the time being. I was honored that Tyihel asked me. She did not know any one else on the Island that was better suited for the job. So when she asked me I just accepted.

Are the kids well?

Well I guess that I will have to see if I am ever invited again to a wedding. I am not sure as to when the next one would be held, but we will see. The Bride look wonderful, look at the way that she is just glowing. I can see that they will be happy for a very long time. I hope that some day I find someone that is wiling to marry me. Though I must say that I have not been on the look out for anyone.

Relor just reflected on what he had just said and shut up. He could not believe that he had said all those things out loud.

Auroraa was very happy to hear Marena's voice. It was especially pleasing when she had given her a hug to comfort her. Oh Mareana I am so glad that you followed me through that bluish hole I was not sure if you were going to come or not. My tail reacted faster then I thought and I found myself here. Where ever here is I am not sure, but I am wiling to bet that this is where you wanted to be.

Come we will follow your ideal and we will go and find out were here is.

Tyihel stood looking at TJ. She was so nervous. She wondered who was going to do the ceremony. How much longer would they have to wait? Was everyone here? She started to turn and look but her eyes stopped when they came to TJ and went no further. She loved him so much. She wanted to reach out and throw her arms around him and kiss him. She whispered softly.

I love You TJ. I surely hope that we can get started soon. I don't know how much longer I can stand here.

She was feeling weak in the knees and her hands were shaking so much. She had to reach out and take his hand. Her palms were sweaty. She looked up into his eyes and smiled softly.

He smiled his eyes shining as he looked at her. A sparkle of happiness shown and he smiled at her. He leaned in and kissed her cheek softly. His hands holding hers and he whispered.

I love you Tyihiel, you are everything to me. You are the only woman I could ever love and will ever love. Soon very soon you will be my wife and there is nothing that could make me happier. I love you my beloved.

He stood there he did wonder how the marriage would take place. Priests usually stood under a church of a type, and her faith was not to be a factor. He smiled and looked at her and waited.

Droevig was a bit unsettled with her thoughts, If the Lord of this island was so strong that he could create an unbreakable field of magic surrounding the center he had to be one of the most powerful wizards she had ever imagined, and yet Triston had said that the actual creator of the island had much more power than he... so much magic was frightening to her, and she could not think of anything that would be a plausible weapon if the magic were to turn against her.

The island was created to serve its inhabitants but if that was so, where had the servants come from? Was Triston simply a conjuration of magic summoned from deep within the earths core? no that couldn't be so... He seemed to be so much more... he was kind and charming, Droevig could not imagine him to be an animated pile of rock and ground, but she could not force the feeling from the pit of her stomach either.

The reached the wedding just in time, and Droevig felt slightly out of place at such a gracious event, she was of course in her traveling clothes, which was unsuitable for anything other than the woods.

"Triston, would you mind if i watched the wedding from afar? I don't think these are suitable clothes for such an event"

Droevig tried to force a smile through her thoughts, but failed horribly, and a lopsided frown forced its way out instead.

Nyteshade smiled ruefully as Dante informed her that he would dine with her; that it would be best if she did not dine alone. He must have forgotten that there was nobody to see to their needs, because of the wedding. She was going to remind him of that, but his other questions made her forget about it for the moment.

I was here once before Dante, but it was so long ago that surely things have changed much since then. Besides, when I was here, my mind was preoccupied with umm....business. I had little time for pleasure....unlike this visit. I was hoping to do a bit of exploring on the Island this time, try to find some of the pleasures that others find when they come here....and some of the peace as well.

I did see a volcano towards the other side of the Island. I was thinking that it might be worth exploring. I had also planned on just relaxing on the beach at some point as well. Sorry I couldn't be of more help in explaining the wonders this Island has to offer. I have yet to discover many of them for myself.

Well, it would seem that we will have to find something to munch on ourselves if we hunger. I think that everyone will be busy with the feast after the wedding, for much of the evening. Then too, we need to find a place to stay....umm...I mean our huts.


Nyteshade had realized at the last moment, that her words had sounded far too intimate for such a short acquaintance. She blushed hotly as she tried to clarify what she'd meant. She was not accustomed to feeling this way...all unsettled and uncertain. She'd never felt this way around a male before...or had she? There was one other time....and she quickly pushed the memory out of her mind as a flash of pain flew across her violet eyes.

Xena watched as everyone stood ready for the wedding. She had a fleeting thought, wondering where the person was who was going to say the words that would unite the couple for the rest of their lives, but then Tiamat was walking over to her and the worry was quickly forgotten.

Let us hope that it will be a very long time before you find yourself doing this for our daughter Tiamat. A very long time indeed.

And of course it was a huge honor for Tyihel to have asked you to do such a thing. I would have been very disappointed had you refused her, as she would have been. Brides deserve to be happy on their wedding day, and had you refused, she would have been very unhappy, I am sure.

The children are well, I dropped them back off at the manor. I think they've had enough excitement for one day, and we don't need them interrupting the ceremony. By the way my darling, who exactly is going to be performing the ceremoney for our love birds? Did you send to the mainland for a man of the cloth or what?

It would seem to me that the delay is only making the bride far more nervous than she needs to be today, of all days. I think it would be best to get the wedding moving, don't you?

Seing Nyteshade blush, seemed in a way, that we have gone up one level in trust. Its not usual for people to blush when they just meet. Although seing her blush, made me realized that I haven't seen that in a very long time. It was a pleasant surprise.

I wondered why she didnt have a pleasant visit last time she was here. Who goes on business on a vacation island

Well, whenever you feel like exploring the volcano, I can acompany you, I mean, if you dont want to go alone.

I hoped I didnt sound to direct with my comment. I dont even know why I am thinking of that.

Maybe we could spend more time together. I find her company pleasant in varios ways. Its hard to explain..

Come we will follow your ideal and we will go and find out were here is. Ok, Lets go, I smiled. I took her hand as much for her benefit as mine and started swimming in a direction to see where it would take us. The water was so clear and the colours so rich and so vivid. Everything seemed brighter and more perfect than one might have expected.

A thought suddenly struck me and I felt a slight fear claw at my heart. Maybe we had died and gone to heaven! I pinched myself. "Ouch" I exclaimed. No I’m not dead I laughed.

Just as the thought left my mind we came in sight of a dock. I gasped and pointed out the ship to Auroraa. Isn’t that the ship that that two-legged Relor manages at the pier?

She smiled and looked at Relor. She was sure he would be married some day and the woman would be a very lucky lady. She already knew what a kind man Relor was and knew how lucky any female would be to marry him. He was very kind and considerate. She took his hand and looked at him.

You are right Relor she does look like she is glowing. And I am sure that you will be married some day. You are a kind man and everything that a woman would be lucky to have in a husband. So I am sure that your day will come to get married. I know you will make the woman you marry a very happy and lucky woman.

Nyteshade smiled softly, as Dante offered to explore the volcano with her. It was nice to have someone whom she could talk to when she wished, or could sit in companionable silence with if she choose....for she instinctively knew that she would be able to do exactly that with Dante if she wished. Nyteshade raised violet eyes to meet his as she nodded her head and spoke softly.

That would be lovely, thank you Dante.

Before Nyteshade had the chance to say more, a very young serving girl hastened up to them. He dropped a hasty curtsey to the couple and then began to speak.

Beg pardon m'lord and lady. I didn't mean to keep you waiting. I didn't expect anyone to be in here right now, as most everyone upon the Island is in attendance at the wedding. I expect you'll be wishing to eat, of course, but first, may I bring you something with which to slake your thirst? Lord Tiamat keeps a fine variety of wines and ales available for guests such as yourselves. Would you care to try one of them today?

Nyteshade smiled at the very young woman, who was obviously far enough down the list in seniority that she had been left to tend the dining hut during the wedding. Her voice was even almost friendly as she spoke, and it surprised her, for there was one time not so very long ago when she would have treated a servant such as this one with cold affrontery.

I will have a glass of chilled Chambord if Lord Tiamat keeps it upon the Island. Dante, what would you care for?

Triston listened to Lady Dreovigs request and was somewhat taken aback by them. It was not often that he would have the chance to come to the Island to assist in a wedding and there was no way that he wanted to be out of distance for the ceramony.

Lady Droevig, this may seem a little forward on my part and especially not selfish. I would rather go and sit for the ceramony even if it is at the back row close to where Lady Xena is. I do not come to the island often and when I do I like to mingle with the people .

I hope that this doe not make me a selfish person for turning down your request. I am trying to find a middle ground where we can both be comfortable. And by the way you look fabulous. I do not understand your request but I will respect it to a point.


Triston waited a few minutes to see what Droevigs reaction would be.

The wind blew gently upon canopy, the trees swayed left and right. As the people were sitting down, a small layer of fog formed on the grownd. Lord Tiamat looked down to see what was happening. This was new to him and he did not understand what was going on.

The Altar that had bee conjoured up was now layed down thick with fog. TJ and Tiyhel could still both be seen. There was something else though that could be seen, a figure, a form of some sort that was not yet distiguishable. Then Tiamat realised that it was the spirit of the island making herself visible for everyone to see.

This was truly a rare occation for the spirit to be seen by so many at once. A soft voice came over the air.

Are we ready to beging?
