    First topic message reminder :

    I want to do a medieval/ renaissance type roleplay. But i'm not really sure the setting though. Kind of thought that we could possibly figure it out together. If any gentelmen would be so kind and join the roleplay with me. Smile

    "Curse you, stubborn girl," Lucio shouted, pointing the tip of his rapier at her. "If you believe I will even think twice about coming back to save you, you are bloody mistaken." Lucio stormed off but stopped a few yards further again and lowered his head. His hair was shagging in his face, clinging to his wet skin. He slowly turned his head again, and shouted. "I will help defend your home, but I will not die for it. If the gate falls, I will come back with horses."

    And with that, he turned and ran after Luca.

    "I shall not need saving" I say as I knock an arrow onto the bow keeping it ready as I watch luca and lucio race off to defend and protect my father and home.

    Lucio slowed his steps as he approach the castle again. Here, on the back side, the walls were higher, and lucky for them, the terrain did not make for easy access points for the attackers. They kept focusing their assault on the main gate. The flames flickered high into the night skies, painting the clouds in a heavy red shimmer.

    He was looking around for the old knight, but he must have either run too far ahead, or must have known about a secret sortie to enter the back of the castle. "Curse him and that fool woman," Lucio thought as he debated his next move. Despite the hear, he was shivering. He was not sure whether he should have left the girl behind. "Well, you wanted an adventure," he said to himself.

    Then he saw movement between the trees. He could make out five lightly armored figures slowly moving in on him. "Blood and bones," Lucio cursed. "They are trying to find a way in through the back." Then they spotted him, and Lucio braced for the attack.

    From the branch sitting I had a vantage point to be able to see the castle. As I was watching I spotted 5 guys make there way around the outer wall towards the back and by the looks of it right towards where lucio was going. "Look who needs the saving now" I mumble shaking my head. As I watch the enemy guys surround lucio, 5 against 1 was the worst odds ever. If lucio knew of the tunnel that leads from one of the trees in the forest then he might have a chance but he didn't. "Looks like i'm his one hope." I mumble knowing it was up to me. I put my arrow back into the quiver and shoulder my bow. As I got up on the branch to where I was standing on it and start to jump from branch to branch until I was 2 trees from the end of the woods. To where I have enough cover from anyone spying me but also had a clear view of my target. I sat on the branch and knock my arrows shooting off five arrows in rapid succetion. Hitting three of the five guys right in the back of the neck right where the helmet and chest plate didn't cover.

    Once I saw the guys go down I quickly climb down the branches and run over to where Lucio was standing. "Thought you could use some saving" I say smiling, putting my back to lucio as I face one of the two remaining guys.

    Lucio was visibly annoyed at Helena's remark. "Shooting someone in the back is easy, young lady," he barked back, "but facing your enemy up close, when you can smell his sweat and taste his blood, that is a different story."

    He positioned himself into a crouching stance, trying to read the movements of their enemies. Helena was standing close to him, and he feared the wrong moves would injure the girl, but his pride got the better of him. In an instant, his rapier seemed to explode. With a quick side step, and a sharp upward thrust, he pierced the first attackers throat. As he pulled out his blade, Lucio was already on the move again, rolled toward the second man and ended his life with a quick jab right under the right armpit. Both men collapsed simultaneously.

    As he was wiping his blade on the dead man, he looked over to Helena and said, "See, no need for saving, young lady." He was lost for a moment looking at her, trying to read her thoughts, but finally gave up and said. " Well, what does your noble highness suggest we do now, since you seem to have all the answers."

    "You would of been dead by the time you killed all 5 of the men" I huff as I bend down and pull the dagger that I had strapped to my calf. After that I took my cloak off and cut a long strip off the end of my cloak. "Well we have two options we can go and help defend the castle or we can ride one of the wild horses to the eastern castle and get more knights to help." I say as I put my dagger away and cloak back on. As I picked up the ripped strip of cloak and walk over to one of the dead knights and start to strip him of his weapons.

    This Helena was definitely not like the women at is court, Lucio had to admit. He wiped a rogue strain of hair out of his face and finally sheathed his rapier. "Nonsense, I train daily with more able men than these. One, five, or ten...it matters not." Although he still could not shake the feeling that Helena was not as gullible as the young girls at father's dance. Definitely not as gullible, he thought to himself.

    With both fists planted on his hips, he analyzed the situation. "Two bodies will not tip the scale for your father, my dear. But the assistance of a regiment of knights can bring the wind of change."

    He looked about the area for the wild horses she spoke of. "So bow and arrow, knives, and wild horses." Lucio chuckled. "I'd place a wager your dear father must think he has a boy for a daughter."

    "You could say thank you" I say looking up at Lucio. As I took the strips of the cloth and tie it around the sword sheath and the two dagger sheaths I took from the dead knight. "It's either the wild horses or we risk our lives in the castle to get two tame horses. What's your pick?" I ask turning to look at Lucio as I stood up and tied the makeshift belt around my waist. "No my father wanted a daughter, a proper daughter that did nothing wrong and could eaisly get killed if she didn't have a knight by her side" I say rolling my eyes as I start to walk through the forest. "But to his dismay he got me" I say taking one last long look at the castle. Afraid that it would be my last time seeing my home and father again. The only family I have left in the world.

    Lucio noticed the long stare, and the sad look in Helena's eyes. He meant to reply with what she wanted to hear. He supposed it wouldn't hurt to...no, he was still a Giordano and..."A Giordano does not give thanks, young lady," he said straightening his back. "A Giordano demands and people follow." The instant he said the words, Lucio regretted them and awkwardly fought that same stray strain of hair again. He quickly kept talking.

    "The wild horses it is. We will not make it back over the castle walls from here and we certainly will not be able to breach the enemies defense line."

    I close my eyes and face my head away from Lucio. "Well... if a 'Giordano' gave people respect maybe more people would give you respect" I say spitting the words out as I turn my head to glare at him. "You can't demand respect and expect people to stay loyal to you" I say turning and start to make my way through the forest. How dare he think that just because he's a 'Giordano' he is better then everyone else.

    Lucio felt a surge of anger creeping up, but swallowed in back in respect of their immediate situation. He took a deep breath, and said quietly: "A blood line must demand respect lest it becomes obsolete; your father should have taught you that." Lucio made a wide sweeping motion with his hand. "It matters not. We need to attend to the task at hand. Let's catch us some horses and not waste any more time."

    "My father..." I say quietly closing my eyes as I take a deep breath. "And brothers taught me that there is a difference between fear and respect." I say quietly as I duck under a couple of branches and walk through the forest towards the clearing I knew of. "You can attract more flies with honey then vinegar" I say as I stop at the end of the clearing and take my cloak off. Cutting more strips off of my cloak making a make shift bridle and rein. "Stay here or you'll scare the horses" I say taking my bow arrows, and makeshift belt off, putting it on the ground next to Lucio. As I slowly start to walk into the empty clearing.

    "Who wants flies anyway," Lucio huffed under his breath, and slumped down in the damp grass, leaving Helena to her duty of choice. He started ripping blades of grass out of the ground, watching her as she walked off into the clearing.

    He could not help but thinking of his father now. What would he do, with his high-and-mighty teachings. "I tell you what he would do. He would have died in his sleep during the attack," Lucio hissed quietly. Compassion had no place in a lord's life, and he needed to stay his course no matter what his father said. The mere fact that he followed his instincts and escaped the castle before the attack was proof enough.

    He stood up, leaving his thoughts behind, wondering whether Helena had any success.

    I walked to the middle of the clearing and closed my eyes as I stood perfectly still. With a little patience and calming vibes I knew the horse I wanted would come. I liked to come out to this clearing alot. Granted everytime I came I had to have at least three guards escort me. But they were always generous enough to stick to the borders of the woods and leave me to my own. After a little while I slowly open my eyes and smile as I see the one horse I was hoping for was standing about 200 yards away from me. She was a beautiful black stallion that I called black beauty. "Beautiful" I whisper smiling as I slowly hold my hand out and wait for her to come to me to trust me more then she has before. I just hope that Lucio didn't come out and spoke the horse before I could get her to trust me.

    OOC: Ah, the decisions. I am not sure if you want me to disturb the horse or not Smile

    Lucio spotted Helena standing in the middle of the meadow. The flicker of the far-away fire could barely be seen here, but yet, it glazed her, the horse and the meadow with a soft red tinge. The pale moon fought for its dominion, shooting its clear rays through the tree tops, and for a moment he felt a deep calm despite his inner turmoil.

    He slowly took a step forward, but stopped immediately as if every move he would make would break this enchanting scene. He breathed slowly and instead waited for Helena to finish her task. She seemed an able girl, and the short time he knew her had at least given him a somewhat good impression of her character. She seemed confident, almost over-confident, so much as if she had to prove herself in every situation. He did not understand why she was fighting being a true lady, but yet again, he was fighting his role in the world as well...and if he was honest with himself, he did want to see if the young lady could put her words into action.

    I smile with my hand still out patiently waiting for black beauty to make the first move. "Thats a girl" I say smiling when she pushed her nose against my hand nuzzling it as I walk slowly closer to her. "I need your help. My home and your home is in trouble. Will you help me" I whisper looking into black beauty's eyes as I pet her nose. I got a nod of the head and smiled when she nuzzled into my neck. "Thank you" I whisper smiling knowing that, that response was her way of asying yes. "I need you to give me a ride to get help" I whisper as I slowly backed away and gently put my makeshift bridle around her nose as slowly make my way the side of the horse. I was amazed at how still she was for me as I gently got onto her bare back and sat still waiting for her to adjust to me. Once I was sure she wouldn't buck me off I slowly started to ride my way over to where Lucio was standing.

    Lucio slowly walked in Helena's direction. She had picked out quite the beauty. Once their little adventure was over, this would make a fine horse for a fox hunt, Lucio thought to himself. His father had had one just like it when Lucio was younger, a stallion however, strong and fast. Lucio had taken it out to go jumping one morning when he was still a young boy, without permission mind you. One jump had proven too much for the horse, and it broke its front ankle. His father eventually had to put the stallion to the sword. Lucio wasn't sure which memory was worse, that of the dead horse, or the scolding he had to endure by his father.

    When Helena was close, Lucio said with a grin: "One for the two of us? You must think me more than a gentleman than I actually am, m'lady."

    "There is only but one horse out here m'lord. The only way I could get black beauty here is because she trusts me that I would do no harm on to her." I say looking down at lucio and patting black beauty's neck. Before I ride black beauty towards where I left my weapons. "You can ride behind me or walk" I say as I slid from the horses back and slowly walk to my weapons putting them on and whats left of my cloak. As I slowly got back on the horse so that she didn't buck me off as I turn and ride back over to Lucio. "What shall it be? But be warn we need to make haste if we are going to save my home and father" I ask looking down at lucio.

    Lucio smile got even wider. "Well, m'lady. I trust that your riding skills are as strong as your will, for Lucio Giordano does not walk." He shook back his hair with a quick jerk of his head and continued. "However, I must warn you that I will have to hold on to you lest I be thrown off this marvelous beast. Would you not feel more comfortable riding behind?"

    Lucio nodded contently. "As you wish, m'lady." With one jump, he slid onto the horse behind her. Helena was small, but she seemed to have good control of the animal. He leaned over and said, "Ride on, young lady. I will keep both eyes peeled to the forest to avoid surprises."

    And with that, he held on to Helena and motioned to be ready.

    "As you wish m'lord" I say kicking my heels a bit and turning Black beauty towards the eastern castle. "Ride girl. Ride as fast as your heart content." I say as we start to move across the clearing as fast as we could through the woods. This and the eastern castle were my only hope to get my father back alive and safe. So help me if I wasn't going do everything that I could to save the last of my family. So help me I wasn't going to be alone in this world with any family.

    The horse was speedy, Lucio had to give that much to Helena. The trees sped past them as they flew to the East. Lucio turned back his head, trying to catch a glimpse of the castle behind them, but naught but a faint shimmer in the distance reminded him of what they had left behind.

    He leaned forward again, dodging Helena's hair blown back in his face by the winds. "What a peculiar girl," he thought to himself. He felt sorry for what she is facing, but was yet still upset about her behavior. If father had known that Lucio would spend the days in court with the little spitfire, he might have rather send him further north instead to the Di Vicenzo family.

    "Di Vicenzo," he whispered, and a shudder ran through his body. Last time he saw the young Di Vicenzon heiress, he near confused her with the beast they were riding on. Suddenly he was glad his father had sent him South.

    "Thats it thats a girl" I whisper leaning a bit forward on the horse as we continued to ride through the woods dodging tree branches as black beauty went faster and faster. Before long the thick woods became dense and the Forreli castle to the east could be seen in the distant. "Faster" I whisper into the horses ear as we exited the woods and got closer to the castle. "Who's there?" I hear a knight from the castle wall calls down as I stop 100 yards away from the castle gates. "Tis I Lady Helena from Castle Castanova. I must have words with your lord, lord Forreli tis urgent" I call up to the knight as I waited for Lucio to get off before I could. "Whats the business you have with lord Forelli?" The knight calls back down to us. "Get down m'lord" I say to Lucio before I turned back up to look at the knight. "There's an attack on my castle. We need lord forreli's help and knights to save the main gate. Your lord knows as well as anyone if our castle is over taken then the enemy has the upper hand."

    Lucio saw the knight leaning over to a second and whispering something. The castle was an impressive construct, with two massive stone towers overlooking the country side. Gauging from the fires on the castle walls, the lord ran heavy patrols even, or especially, in this time of night.

    Lucio slid off the horse, and walked up to Helena, turning his back to the castle guards. "These men do not seem inviting," he whispered. "Are you sure of their allegiance? Many a lord switched sides in this conflict." He turned his head to look up at the guards again. "And even if, gauging from their numerous guard fires, they are either scared of someone, or preparing for something completely different."
