    Aimless wanderer

    Gray had been in the fringe lands for months. He couldn't remember the last time he had seen another person. He left the world capital after faking his death for his brothers, but he really did it to escape. He didn't want to live the life his parents laid out for him, he knew his power had a different purpose then just to maintain his family's status. He was looking for something, someone who could show him what his purpose actually was.

    I wonder if i'll ever find someone who can show me what i'm meant to do with this power...

    Until then he knew he would just have to keep searching.

    Verina was storming through the Fringe. She just wanted to get away, if only for a little bit. She made a point to avoid the battle scene, despite the temptation. She did tell her King she'd be careful, and that she wouldn't go after that one eyed witch. She was surrounded by people at first, but she preferred solitude, so she went where the least amount of people were. She was still mad.

    'Just let it out...'

    The dark voice in her head whispered, and for just a moment, Verina saw a flash of red. In a heartbeat, a huge explosion happened on her left. Verina jumped in surprise, but then realized that she herself made the explosion, and saw Dark Matter crawling away from the site. She stared at it for a few minutes, amazed at her outburst. She usually had a handle on her emotions. That's when she saw something else. A figure in the distance. It seemed... familiar. She walked towards it, starting to recognize him more and more.

    "Gray Fox... looking awful spry for a dead man. Do you remember me? I thought I'd be wearing a fancier dress when I saw you again."

    Gray continued travelling aimlessly through the fringe lands

    will i ever find my purpose?

    Suddenly an explosion happened nearby, gray wasn't injured. he was however started at all the noise. then, a familiar voice rang in his ears

    "Gray Fox... looking awful spry for a dead man. Do you remember me? I thought I'd be wearing a fancier dress when I saw you again."

    Gray turned as he saw someone from his past life. Verina Godfrey... that woman, they were supposed to be married before Gray "died". He bowed politely before saying:

    "Why salutations milady Godfrey, I never would have expected to see you again. I hope it wasn't you who made that explosion so close to me, one would mistake you for hunting me down, being as how we were once betrothed. Though, if that is the case I apologize for my rude behavior, but i really did not think that you would take our broken engagement so badly."

    Gray did nothing but smile and rub his head at the current situation in front of him.

    Verina couldn't help but smile at his reaction. He thought she was so upset that their arranged marriage couldn't be that she came to hunt him down..? The thought made her giggle.

    "No, I did not come all this way out of anger towards you. I was mad at something else entirely, but that's unimportant. I have to admit I'm surprised to see you here. I was told you were dead... what brings you back to the world of the living?"

    Verina was curious as to what her would be husband was doing in the middle of nowhere... was he lost? Should she show him back to his manor?

    Gray stood there relieved. Verina hadn't hunted him down after all and so gray could do nothing, but smile at the question she had posed.

    "I see, well i never really left the world of the living to be honest. The issue is complicated. You see I had to fake my death due to certain circumstances at the time... Of course I don't want my parents to find out that i'm alive."

    Gray scratched his cheek waiting to see how Verina would respond to such a statement. Knowing her who dutifully follows the will of her family's name and all the problems that come with it, gray thought that he might just sound as though he was coming off as irresponsible.

    Verina raised an eyebrow at his response. He'd faked his own death? Why would a talented, educated and noble prince, heir to his family's throne... fake his death?

    "I beg your pardon... but why would you need to fake your death? Is there someone after you? I don't know if you've heard, but I've become a Queen of a set now, if anyone is trying to find you, I can help you. I can get you back to your family, just tell me the problem."

    Verina stepped closer to the man, almost inspecting him for signs of injury. If he was being chased, there was a chance he had to fight off his enemies.

    Gray was shocked to hear that Verina had become a queen. that meant that she finally found someone she deemed worthy. However at the same time he didn't know how to respond to her offer for help. All he could do was tell her the truth. Gray grit his teeth a bit then finally spoke.

    "No No, it's nothing like that no one is after me. I was the youngest of four brothers and became heir to the family when my parents discovered the rare ability that runs in my family's blood in me... You should know that ability as well If I wanted to, no one would find me. I faked my death as a way to appease my jealous older brothers mostly, but i also did it so I can escape this life that my parents have forced upon me. So really there's no need to worry about me, though i am happy to hear that you are fulfilling the goals you set out for. Honestly, I am..."

    Gray hoped that that would clear up any misunderstandings as he finished speaking while shyly looking away.

    Verina raised an eyebrow at the response. She'd never considered it... life that his parents forced on him. Like he was raised to be a perfect little puppet. Verina was taken aback by the statement. She was raised almost exactly like him... was she also just a little puppet, living her parents dreams.

    'Just a sheep, marching to the drums... kehehehe...'

    A sharp pain shot through Verina's head as the voice whispered to her, causing her hand to shoot to her temple and her eyes to close tight as she visibly flinched away from Gray. She was taking notes on the voice... it was a woman's, but it was dark, sinister... but at the same time it was seductive, and Verina was sorely tempted to surrender herself to it's quite, subtle might. She quickly straightened herself, and righted herself, ignoring the throbbing pain.

    "I... can see what you mean. I guess I'd never really thought about it. With my parents... gone... I guess I never realized how much I'm living my life in their image. Harsh reality of nobility, I suppose. Heh."

    Verina looked away from Gray, and into the distance. She stayed like that for a moment and thought, before realizing how rude that was.

    "I imagine you have nowhere to go... would you please stay at my manor? At least for a little while, until you can find something more suiting. You can meet my set, if you wish."

    Gray watched as Verina had cringed in agony in front of him. He could tell she was in serious pain. Then she said

    "I... can see what you mean. I guess I'd never really thought about it. With my parents... gone... I guess I never realized how much I'm living my life in their image. Harsh reality of nobility, I suppose. Heh... I imagine you have nowhere to go... would you please stay at my manor? At least for a little while, until you can find something more suiting. You can meet my set, if you wish."

    Gray smiled awkwardly at Verina's words, she might have questioned her resolve after what he had said. Gray however was more concerned about a place to stay. He had been sleeping in abandoned buildings along the fringe for months and he wasn't accustomed to it after all.

    "That would be nice Verina. I think I'll take you up on your offer to stay at your manor... it'll be a nice change of pace compared to the places I've been staying at lately... besides this will give me the opportunity to meet the person who is able to call you their queen."

    Gray smiled and held his hand out to the side.

    "So Verina would you be as so kind as to lead the way for me."

    Verina smiled gently at his response. He had agreed, that was good. She had hoped that she would get to question him further on what life was like... being free of all responsibility. She couldn't bare the thought of trying it herself... to let the Godfrey name end with her would be shameful in the most awful of ways... right?

    'Whatever you say, Queen. Kehehehe. But will it really die? You could always just... change what it means to be a Godfrey...'

    Verina ignored the pain now, and held herself tall before turning back in the direction she'd come from. She nodded back to Gray.

    "Of course I'll take you. I can't expect you to know the way yourself, right?"

    With that she started walking at a pace she knew that he could keep up to. It wouldn't be long before they reached the manor.

    Verina had smiled and said

    "Of course I'll take you. I can't expect you to know the way yourself, right?"

    Gray smiled back and followed the queen and his old friend to her manor wondering what he would encounter when he got there.
