Settling in at the Keep

After a month of meetings with the leaders of the allies of Haven, Esmerelda returns to the keep to once again reclaim it as home. It is difficult not to see the ghosts of the past as she walks the halls. There was where Corbyn sat when they would eat dinner... That corner was where people laughed as she scolded Ka for fighting in the kitchen... Here was the spot where she was returned from the dead and threw herself into Atrum's arms... The room where she and Kidwynn had shared so many confidnces... the same room where Maximus struck her down... So many dinners shared with friends- smiling at Atreus and Kull as she cooked for them for the first time... Shea chiding her to make up with her brother and be more responsible... Watching Rosamund and Aeric play at being a lady and her knight...

With a shake of the head Esmerelda brings herself back to the present. Yes, terrible things had occured in this place. But happy times had occured as well. It was time to bring joy back to this place. What better time than the approaching holiday? Running to her room she gathers parhcment and quill. She quickly writes something and posts it on the wall:

Solstice dinner and celebration!
All are welcome to share the joy of the season.

Once it is posted, she heads to the kitchen. There would be some serious baking to do to prepare for the dinner...
Lady Esmerelda Harrison,
Queen of the Kingdom of Haven

*Walking into the keep, the young witch-hunter removes her helm and unbundles out of her warm weather gear. Ever since they arrived at this new location, Aurora has been doing her best to get a feel of the land for this is the first time since she was very young she's really lived anywhere else but Caldeonia. She never really ever settled into the Coldridge area when she spent some time up north. As she passes by she looks and sees the posting for the diner and celebration and goes over to where she figured she'd find Esmerelda, in the kitchen.*

*Aurora smiles*

Esmerelda, need any help?

*Upon seeing her friend reflecting on what's past and suddenly excited about a future party, Fionna rises from her chair.

She has seemed a bit distant over the last few weeks. Having left her home with her new friends, she is both slightly homesick for her homeland and approaches her new surroundings with trepidation. Caldonia is the only home she has ever known, even after leaving the strangle hold her mother kept on her. She was still in the land she knew. Since arriving in Haven, she has spent some time wandering the land they call Haven searching for herbs for her potions, trying to determine where the best stands of each herb can be easily found. While not in the woods she has kept to herself mostly focusing on the ever present crochet project she has been working on to keep herself busy and her mind from wandering.

She walks to the kitchen, after reading the note left by her friend.*

Es, do you need any help? What do you want to serve for Solstice dinner?

Esmerelda smiles at her friends. "well, let's see... things to do... we need decorations, perhaps some greens and holly? And maybe some mistletoe," she adds witha mischevious grin. "And we should make some presents perhaps, just something small... And baking!

"As for menu, maybe we should see what Trusk can hunt up for us for meat? And I don't know, what else do you want to make?"

*Aurora grins slightly but her eyes are deep in thought about a few things.*

Well I have a few ideas on baking and I can always help set up decorations.

As for the cooking part, just let me know what you need stirred or whatever and I can do that. I wasn't that bad of a student when you were teaching me before.

:walking along the familiar path, the keep now came into ulfgars view, seeing many of the towns folk hurry around boxes and what not into the new keep, ulfgar stopped and looked around, as he looked at the court yard passing visions of the battle came back to him, he saw esmerelda and atrum hurriedly working to stop the world clock, he turned his head towards the windows of the keep and saw dallid healing and resurrecting those who had fallen in battle. as he turn to the middle of the courtyard he saw his friend trusk roaring like a beast possessed as wave after wave of elven infantry were splattered and broke upon him like water on rocks:

stopping to help a few towns people with some random boxes ulfgar entered the keep and as he set down the boxes, he turned to see another familiar sight, esmerelda, Fionna and aurora working around the kitchen:

ulfgar turns to esmerelda "good teh see things ar gettin' back teh normal, m'lady, or should ah be sayin, yer majesty" as he smiles:

Den-father of the Howling Fang tribe.
friend and ally of the dwarves of Killeshandra.
