Rex walked into the city of Edaria. And couldn't help but be a little bit impressed by how quickly they bounced back from the First Contact War. He'd heard of Aline before, not just because she stole Bethany's heart first, but also because of the war. Still, it was nice to see the city before heading back home. He wore his white nobility clothes, his sword at his hip.

The blond was glad to be out of Mondolin, and his scythe repaired. And hopefully when it was revealed that he was an Asentari, maybe Lillian wouldn't have as harsh an opinion of them. And he was due for a clock in the jaw when that little fact was revealed. He wasn't looking forward to that, but it is what it is and would accept the punishment for lying about what he is and where he was from.

Rex found an inn/tavern quickly enough and booked for a two day stay. He also sent a message to Edia via a pigeon system to tell them that he was about five days out. It would be nice to be home. Seven months away was far too long, and he was sure Krad was worried sick about him.

He walked around the city. It was still incredible that there were heanta this far south. And they were peaceful here, even if a bit uneasy, with those around them. Overall, everyone seemed to mind their own business. Eldari, human, even a couple of Asentari here and there. That wasn't too surprising, he supposed. There was a festival that was starting though, so a lot of people were hustling around. The blond worked his way over towards the main areas for it. And wondered if maybe he should ask if he could speak with Aline. Eh, she was probably to busy for idle chit chat with some like him.

It had been a very long time since Bethany had set foot in Edaria. She'd past the city a number of times in the past, seen it grow from the town it once was. nearly fourty years, she though. She'd even gone back to Edia before now, but facing her family seemed almost easier than seeing Aline again. Not that she was there to see Aline. As she approached the gates, no one paid her any mind, just another wondering coming to visit the city. She didn't expect anyone to recognize her, though surely many of the younger people would still be around today. The first person she recognized was actually a heanta, one of the first to come to Edaria. A captain of the watch now, the only think different about her was the armor and the regal bearing. She didn't notice or recognise Bethany, but then, Bethany couldn't place the female's name. Bethany followed the crowd, picking up snippets of information about the festival that was going on today in the great square.

Curiosity got the better of her, and Bethany headed towards the square. She wondered if the old house was still there, or maybe Aline had knocked it down and built a palace. But as Bethany entered the square she seen the house, with a few extentions she admitted, but no more grand or Regal than it once was. She wasn't surprised. And then to bethany's surprise, she spotted Rex in the crowd and started to make her way towards him. She was about to call his name, when she spotted Aline in the crowd. Her hair was the most pristine black, flowing down her back, her skin was pale like moonlight, as clear and lineless as the day bethany met her, and an elegant white dress. Her crystaline blue eyes were smiling, as she gently lay a freindly hand on a heanta's shoulder as he passed. The pale scar across her throat was still there, too, forever a reminder of Castus Merciallus' cruelty, along with a necklace of gold Bethany had given her years ago.

She was surprised to feel her heart beat increase at the sight of Aline. She hadn't seen her in so long, and she was sure she had left that part of her behind. But clearly she hadn't. Bethany watched her approach Rex, and quickly took the oppertunity to vanish into the crowd.

***

Aline moved through the crowd as the festivities began. No stranger to mingling with the poeple of the city despite being its leader, she smiled at every person who passed. Some she knew, some she didn't, but tried to memorise their faces. She had never been one to distance herself, even when her guards found it troublesome to protect her. Not that she was worried about being attacked. Rajik only insisted on guards after the redfang had tried to kidnap her. The attempt had failed thanks to the heanta she patted on the arm as she past. A blacksmith, he had no qualms about using the forges tools to help her.

As Aline scanned the crowds, she spotted a young asentari she'd never seen before wondering around. She knew most of the asentari in the city, those who chose to stay usually came to see her after settling in. Elegant clothing and a longsword at his hip, she was sure he was new to the city. She didn't hesitate to approach him with a smile. "Its a lovely day for a festival." She said to him as she scanned the great square. The fountain had been decorated, there was all sorts of activities. The sound of laughter and joy filled the air. "I don't believe we've ever met, young Asentari. How are you finding the city?" She asked politely, meeting his eyes.

He turned to face the owner of the voice. Black hair, slitted blue eyes, scar around the throat, but no sign that it affected her voice at all. Rex's eyes were also blue, but closer to his slitted pupils were a darker shade that often made it difficult to see them at a glance or in bad lighting. Though it wasn't uncommon for Asentari to pick each other apart with relative ease from a crowd.

Still, he wasn't quite expecting to have someone approach him. "Interesting. The only other Heanta I've met said she was the exception to the rule, and here I see a few here and there living in peace. If a bit uneasy with everyone else being wary of them. One of them is even a watch guard. I skipped the city on my way to explore for a while...figured I'd stop by on my way home."

And so far he hadn't regretted it. "I'm glad that it bounced back so quickly after the contact war. Oh, I'm Rex von Broven. Sorry...I've been forgetting my manners a lot lately..." He smiled childishly and rubbed the back of his neck. When in somewhere new that was as relaxed as he was, he had been forgetting a bit. That, and not many people seem to really care. Just let him do his business with them and not ask any questions.

The boy looked a bit surprised by her approach, but he didn't hesistate to speak to her. She smiled as he talked about how strange it was to see heanta here, even though he'd only ever met one who was anyway freindly. Aline smiled. "I find there is rarely only one exception to a rule. Though many of the heanta here are outcasts or former slaves who escaped Kyrias so perhaps your freind may be. The captain you mentioned lost her, what is it called.. Demonic matrix? Without it she was seen as useless and forced to flee or be enslaved. Heanta are brutal, but often it seems they are most brutal with their own people. Even so its hard to trust. Now show me a heanta and eldari who get along, and I'd really be surprised." She said with a gentle laugh. Even in Edaria the two races were wary of each other, though thankfully there had been no major incidents. That fact alone she considered a success.

He mentioned he was on his way home, to Edia she guessed. She nodded as he talked, and when he brought up the contact war, she frowned. "We didn't suffer to much from the war. When the Asentari showed up at our gates, they stood down as soon as they realised who led the city. It was after that we realised a war was coming and only thanks to the sunlight covenant who had caught the slavers were we able to stop it." She explained to him. when he mentioned he was a Von Broven, she couldn't hide the surprise on her face. "As in, Vermon Von Broven? Son or grandson?" She asked curiously. She hadn't heard the name in a very long time, and it brought back sweet memories of Bethany. She wondered if the woman was still out there, but then considering how stubborn Bethany could be, Aline doubted she would allow herself to die.

Aline shook her head. "I'm sorry I don't mean to pry. You don't have to answer. But I suppose I should introduce myself. I'm Aline Drexara, it's very nice to meet you Rex."

Rex grinned. "As a matter of fact, that exception is best friends with an Eldari. I wouldn't have believed it fully if I hadn't seen it personally. The two acted like sisters almost." And it was quite entertaining and fascinating.

He supposed that was true. He had just graduated shortly before it started. And was dealing with the reports and paperwork. But nodded nonetheless. He wasn't too privy into the reports.

At first, he was surprised, and even taken aback. Then she explained who she was, and that made his eyes widen and his jaw drop. Clearly flustered, he gathered himself. "It's alright...you just caught me completely off guard...I...wasn't exactly expecting to meet with you or anything. I'd be his grandson...grandma definitely could have done better, as could have my birthmother. Thank you for helping Beth out and leaving...she thinks if that didn't happen, she'd be a pawn and a controlled wife...I think differently, even more so after fighting beside her...but well...we each have our own opinions. I already met Beth Merciallus..." He was super fidgety now.

"Anyways...are you sure it's ok to be out like this?" He didn't know of many city leaders outside of Edia who actually go out of their way to talk to the inhabitants. Maybe the way Edia works was very much ingrained in the elder Asentari, and fully believe it is the right way to go. Though from the looks of other people around him, this seemed like a very normal thing.

Aline let out a surprised laugh. "Well now, perhaps there is hope for the Eldari and heanta after all. Next time you see your freinds send them to Edaria, maybe they're freindship will rub off on the locals. It would be nice to see." She said. He became extremely flustered when she intruduced herself and she couldn't help herself but smile. "Well aren't you adorable. It seems Vermon didn't rub off on you at the very least. Sorry, I don't mean to speak Ill of your ancestors." She said.

And then Aline found herself surprised again, but she didn't laugh this time. "You've met Beth? How... How is she?" Aline asked. She hadn't expected to hear that this boy knew her old freind. If Beth even still considered them friends after Aline had let her go. He thanked her for helping Bethany out of her old life. Aline gave him a soft smile as he shared his thoughts on that. "All I did was fall in love with her. She credit's me for more than I deserve on that, I think. She was always strong, I think she might have been blind to that though. Her father made sure of it. Aweful man..." She said, running a hand over her scar.

"You probably missed out on the best grand mother ever mind you. But you know, if your calling her Beth you must have warmed up to her. She never liked being called that by anyone besides me. She bit a man over it once." Aline said with a airy laugh. It was nice to hear she was ok, and had freinds. "I haven't heard news of Beth in a long time, and she hasn't been back in the city since she left. Last I knew, she was leading a mercenary band, but she simply vanished at one point.." She said. She let the conversation drop when Rex asked if it was safe for Aline to be out and about.

"Probably not, but I suppose having skin as tough as steel certainly puts my mind at ease. Besides I'm far too social to stay cooped up indoors, I'd probably lose my mind if I can't get out and meet people. It might sound idiotic to say, but I would do anything for the people of the city, and I think they would do anything for me. Its certainly been the case in the past. Even so, Rajik my old Eldari friend insists I keep guards after the Redfang tried to take me from the streets." If that worried him she quickly explained how a heanta who worked one of the local forges had quickly dealt with them. "But just between you and me, I'm not much for fighting. I used to leave that to Beth, but I'm a crack hand at lockpicking and sneaking. I was a bit of a pest back in Edia." She said with a coy smile.

***

Drink in hand, a sweet wine produced by the city that made her regret leaving all those years ago, Bethany milled around the crowed and tried her best to enjoy herself. But she kept thinking how she wanted to speak to Aline. Since the Asentari was still conversing with Rex, it gave her a bit of a reason to go over and say hello. She could walk up to Rex, pretending not to see Aline, and act shocked. But as she swigged at her wine, she realised that was a stupid plan. She couldn't act surprised to save her life. Aline probably didn't even want to see her anyway. She'd probably moved on, it had been fourty years or more. Aline probably had a husband and children. She'd always wanted children, and unlike Bethany she'd admitted to finding men attractive in the past. Bethany finished the last of the wind, and decided maybe she'd make a decision after the next glass.

"I'll be sure to let Fayla and Vala know next time I see them." Rex couldn't help but smile and chuckle. "I'll speak ill of them all my life, so please, feel free to do the same. They were awful people. And thankfully very dead now." Especially his donor/father. The Primoris Rex saw to that.

He switched to Draconic. "The first time I saw her, so-so, maybe even a bit on the bad end...she was a guard for a thug that sure as hell didn't respect her. Let alone the other goons. After a play-fight, I invited her out for a drink. Must have charmed her during that. Second time was further north. She was joining me, Fayla, Vala, and a few others to take down the Dying Suns mercenary group. While she was still very much an alcoholic, she seemed to be doing better. My rival, who was formerly a part of that group, and her even had a drinking contest back at the inn. He shook his head at the memory. He'd talked to Seig about his honorable discharge shortly after that started, and they were well into it afterwards. Poor Kronos lost in the end.

"The Praetors are doing that more and more it seems. Going out into their districts not to just campaign, but also talk to people. So I don't blame you...but with enough strength or the right equipment, that skin won't protect you. My sword will cut through it easy enough, as well as my scythe. Just be careful...Edaria seems to be getting more and more popular..."

He did grin at that last part. "My mentor's best friend and his second in command has been teaching me those...I'm still a bit of a novice though. Never heard if you were nobility or not...not like there is much difference aside from wealth..." He could do some basic locks and common ones, but more specialized or even uncommon ones he wasn't good at. He started to walk a little bit to take a better look at the festivities while paying attention to Lady Aline.

Aline listened to what Rex had to say about Beth. He switched to Draconic as he did, so she switched when she answered him too. "I see. Her drinking was a problem when things ended between us. I knew she was unhappy here, she didn't take to being stuck to one place as easily as I did. I though letting her go would help." She'd done all she could to help Beth, but she knew it wasn't possible to fix someone. They needed to get there on their own.

Rex spoke about how the preators had adopted her strategy for creating trust with the public. "Well that is a surprise. When I was last in Edia, they were a bunch of jumped up old people who were to busy arguing to make decisions that would help their people." He warned her about not relying on her skin to protect her and she shook her head with a laugh.

"Your as bad as Rajik. I know its dangerous, but I have never allowed fear to make my choices. The scar on my neck is a reminder of that. Besides, the redfang would rather have me alive." She said. He mentioned he was also learning to pick locks and wondered if she was a noble. She smiled. "No I'm not a noble. I was actually born in Lower Edia. My father was human, and my mother was at the time in the military. He died of some sort of sickness, and after his death we moved to upper Edia. My mother died a year before I met Beth. What remained of my family was burned down when her father tried to kill me." She explained.

He started to walk so she joined him. "So have you found a place to stay in the city already? Your welcome to stay in my townhouse. Its got plenty of sparerooms, and there's a diplomat visiting from Oleas. I don't mean to be rude, but he's incredibly boring." She said with a light laugh.

Rex shrugged. "Only time will tell, she is stronger than she knows and gives herself credit for. We both agree on that." They say time will heal all wounds. But sometimes, he had to wonder if there was any truth to that human saying. Then she went on about the Praetors. "The Contact War changed things a lot. We criticized our leaders and military leaders about how we went about it. At the same time, Mondolin also criticized their own king about how he handled it. Unlike them, we can more easily and readily change our leadership, and that's been happening...the culture on that front has changed a lot." Whether it was for the better or worse was yet to be determined. He would have responded about Rajik, but that would have exposed him, not like he was too worried, but decided to let it go. She certainly was admirable...not letting fear dictate her actions. He wished he was as strong as that.

Then she went on to answer his question. He looked sorrowful at her. "I'm sorry to hear that. If it weren't the Primoris Rex, I'd be six feet under, split in half by this very sword..." He realized his mistake immediately, but didn't react much aside from a brief pause.

"The offer is appreciated, but I already found a place. Though I would have hoped anyone engaging in diplomacy with you wouldn't be that boring...I don't even know where Oleas is...if it's more west, I haven't been through there...I mostly went north, northeast. I'm heading home now...though I am staying for a couple days before finishing my journey..."

Aline nodded. "It was a needless war, even if it shook things up. It would have been far worse if it wasn't for Kairi Thorne and the sunlight covenant's aid in capturing the slavers. And to be fair, Mondolin had no idea what kind of threat the freelands were facing, and moved to atleast protect the people out here. Admittedly they picked an odd time to engage with the world outside their borders again, but both sides had the best intentions. That often doesn't matter though." She said.

Rex let slip that he'd almost been killed by the very blade he carried, only to be saved by the Primoris Rex. She gave him a solemn smile. "I can only assume your father was on the other end of that blade. It's lucky Alura was there to help, though I assume he met an terrible end." She said. She let out a sigh. "All the same, better him than you." She gave him a gentle smile. "I had heard a potential rumor that Alura had taken in a ward. Don't worry, secret's safe with me." She said. She turned suddenly as a commotion started nearby.

***

"Your going through allot of wine." A man said as he stepped beside Bethany. "Nervous about something?" He asked. Bethany eyed him as she drank from her fifth, or was this the sixth, cup of wine. "I'm working up the nerve to speak to someone." She replied. "Oh right. Former lover?" He asked, smiling suggestively. "Yeah that one." She said. "Well, if you want, I can make you forget all about him. If he's the reason you're part of your pretty face is hidden behind a bandage maybe you should." He said with a roguish grin. Bethany snorted. "You're not my type." She said dismissively. He didn't take the hint. "Ah come on now, you can't know that until you've given me a try." He said pushing a little closer. "The only thing I'm going to give you is a black eye if you don't take the hint and get the fuck away from me."

She snapped at him. "A feisty one. You don't need to play hard to-" Bethany turned and socked him across the jaw, knocking him flat onto his ass. "I warned you." She said. He scrambled back and pushed himself to his feet. "Fuck you, bitch!" He shouted, and ran off. She took another drink, and started walking again. She noticed Aline and Rex moving through the crowds, and watched them moving through the festival. Sighing, she put down her cup, and started to walked towards Aline and Rex. Might as well get the hard part out of the way.

A hand grabbed her shoulder and spun her in around. The hand belonged to a large man, and he was backed up by two others. The little weasel from earlier was back, and glared at her. If looks could kill, well, she was to stubborn to die. Or too drunk. "You hit my freind, whats your problem stranger." Bethany reached up and grabbed his hand. "I told him to leave me alone, and he didn't. I suggest you do the same before I break your hand." She said. He laughed at that. "Little thing like you." Bethany twisted his wrist back and squeazed at the same time. She heard bones pop and the man let out a scream. He pulled away and one of his thugs took a swing at her.

She sidestepped it and kicked him in the crotch, and struck the third with an elbow before he could grab her from behind. The large man struck again, and smashed her across the face with his big fist, knocking the bandage loose, revealing the scars left by Saivene's claws and her ruined eye. She glared at the man, and he looked as if he'd realised he'd made a mistake. "Damn I-." He said, but she lunged for him anyway. "STOP!" A voice cried out. Bethany froze on the spot. She knew that voice well, Aline's airy musical voice. She sounded pissed.

She didn't seem to mind. "Yeah. On both the war and with her. That...was the first and only time I've heard her regret how she handled a situation openly. But she's also said that the greatest trait one can have is the ability to learn. If I had a drink, I'd toast to calmer heads prevailing next time." Because there will be a next time. If his time in Mondolin was any indication, accident or not.

It wasn't long after that some commotion was starting. Upon investigating, it was a group of guys harassing a girl...Bethany Merciallus of all people. Which shocked the hell out of him. And pissed off Aline. Stepping in between the man Beth was about to pummel and her, he gave the guy narrowed eyes. "If I were you, I'd just leave it at this and mind your own business. Because she will fuck you up. I've seen her fight before, she'll kick your ass." He proceeded to start talking to those that witnessed the altercation, allowing Aline and Beth to maybe talk. It seemed like one of the guys approached her and didn't take a hint.

Hence the sudden escalation. Sighing heavily, he reported to Aline with what he'd found out. Hopefully she would be easy on Beth...

Bethany looked at Aline sheepishly. The black haired asentari stared back, her expression unreadable, before she looked at the men who had caused the trouble. "Go home. If I find you've caused more trouble there will be punishments." They didn't argue. They knew who Aline was after all. Bethany watched them scamper away and opened her mouth to speak. "How long have you been back?" Aline asked her.

"I got in today." Bethany said. "I-" Aline frowned. "What happened to your eye?" She asked. "By Erolath's wings your a mess." Bethany snorted. "That's a bit rude." Bethany replied. Rex who had been asking around came back and explained to Aline what had happened. "Typical. Did you have to punch him? Is that your answer to all your problems still?" Aline asked her frostily. Bethany shrugged. "I told him nicely to go away first. He didn't listen so I punched him."

Aline snorted. "Come with me, both of you. I don't want to cause a scene in the street, so let's go have a chat in my home." Aline said. Bethany hesitated. She'd made a mistake coming here, had only been around for a few hours before causing trouble for Aline. She should leave. "Actually, I think I better go. I have business in Zadartis.." She said. Aline shot a glare at her. "Don't even think about it. You don't get to walk back in here and flee as soon as you see things getting tough." Aline snapped. Bethany was taken aback by that, so she followed quietly. If Rex tried to escape, Aline would ask him to stick around, albiet not so forcefully.

When they got into the house, Aline led them into the sitting room. Bethany was surprised to see that some of the furniture was the same. Her old chair was still there, and she sat in it. Aline sat across from her and offered another seat to Rex. Aline looked at Rex first. "Did you know she was in town?" Her gaze snapped to Bethany, "No I suppose you didn't. Why are you here, Beth?" She asked Bethany. "I was litterally just passing through. On my way to Edia." She said. Aline cocked her head to the side and frowned. "I see. What happened to your eye, why haven't you seen a healer?"

Bethany looked at Rex. "Sorry you got dragged into this. How are you, kid?" She asked. Aline sighed. "Don't change the subject. Your impossible. I haven't heard a word from you in years, I didn't even know if you were alive, when you finally show up, your blind in one eye. Why didn't you come back sooner, send a letter, anything?" She asked. Bethany looked away. This was why she should have stayed away. "Maybe we could get a drink first." She asked.
