Val caught Keovi looming over to the side. He closed his eyes for a moment and rolled his head straight back. He flopped it back forward talking before his head came to a rest.
“That guy. There always has to be a GUY. I can't believe you know him as well as Elsee’s mother. Did you all put in tying bids at a date auction or something…”

He snapped back to Tegan, his eyes lingering on her tiny vest. “Oh, right shirt. Shirt.” He padded himself, put his hand in every pocket and then leaned over and dragged a large pack over. He flipped the top of the worn canvas bag over and rummaged.

“You go on and talk while I dig around…” He raised a brow as he pulled out a small green shape. He took a bite and placed it next to him.

Juniper never minded Frostwall, or the cold of Frostfire Ridge. It was just all the Peons. They had a particular smell that she’d never really grown used to, even after all this time.

   Snow was only just beginning to fall on the stone where she stood. She pulled the edge of her skirt up, allowing space for her legs as she bent down to the floor slowly. She reached out her hands and brushed the cold ground lightly with her fingertips. Beside her was a single stick of pristine, unused chalk. It was a ritual she’d done many times over the past decade, more than almost anything else. Her fingers gently took the chalk in her right hand and began to draw large sweeping circles on the ground before her.

    The words came next. Beautiful demonic words that demanded to be written like ghostly calligraphic silhouettes.  She stood, but bent at the waist, drawing the last long straight line. The whole design lit up with a flash of green that sent a gust of wind up the front of her, blowing her hair from her face. The light dimmed to a warm violet, forming into lines which streamed up and made the outline of a door. The center of the projected door faded to a black nothingness. She walked over to a small table nearby and set down her chalk. A small folded cloth sat waiting for her, which she used to wipe her hands off before returning to the door.

     She could see them all. Tiny drifting shimmers along a waving network of intricate threads. Anyone she knew. Anyone she chose to reach out and take, pulling on them like elastic and placing them where she chose. The thought passed quickly, as it always did, and she refocused her attention. Quickly she’d found familiar ones, skimming over them and darting her eyes to the next. Her head turned and her eyes fixed on a cluster of four. She reached her hands in, moving the clutter of others out of the way so she could see better. The shimmering gave off flashes of colour that took her a moment to study.

“Durotar?!” She clenched her teeth in irritation. “Those idiots.”

    She reacted instinctually, snapping her hand forward into the black and grabbing onto all four souls on their tiny elastic strings. She leaned back, pulling all at once until the small shimmering became the shapes of persons. The three elves and Elsee. Along with a large cloud of red dust, a nearly visible crate and half of the hammock. It all spilled out onto the stone ground.

     Juniper wouldn’t wait for them to recover from the unannounced summoning. She just laid into Elsee, Valendil and Tegan like they were children.

“I said GO THROUGH THE PORTAL! Not wait for days like the common spike setters. What is wrong with you all?! Shame on you and your ignorance! This is not the first war ANY of you have lived through. Things with priority like this DO NOT sit in a desert for days while you party with the help! You might have already destroyed ANY chance at an upper hand that this might have given us. I hope you’re all proud of your inability to be anything but disappointing.”


  The slight woman stood straight, with unwavering poise and a glare that would turn anyone a size smaller. She began to pace in front of them, with her arms behind her back, as the snow fell harder.

“First, you three will explain the incredibly bad choices you made that landed you in this sorry position. That way I won’t have a reason to send you out into the Nether like the useless Void Dust you all are. Then, you’ll deliver these documents like I asked you to do DAYS ago. Mister Blackshard, I expect that you’ll inform me of anything they fail to detail. And I must add that I’m slightly discouraged that the delay persisted even with your presence... ”

Val was just pulling out his only other shirt to offer up reluctantly to Tegan when he felt it. It was that feeling like your skeleton was moving away from the rest of you. He turned to look up at the others but it was like his vision began to stutter, he could always tell when it was her pulling him through. Most summoning's tended to almost glide passengers through whatever a portal was made out of. Juni’s seemed to be more of a violent yank through the the infinite darkness.

Val tried to yell out but it sounded like his voice was reverberating through water. It became a looping track of his own voice repeating in his head getting more and more distorted each pass. He could almost see the waves emitting from his mouth bending the fabric of reality.

His body felt like it was humming in a rhythmic pattern. It always felt like it was endless. He found himself having more thoughts that actual time would of allowed. He figured this is where you go when you die and he was certain he wanted to push that off as long as he could. His other musings would have to wait as his  voice finally caught up to him.

“SUMMONING….” He caught himself from continuing. His hair fell to the side of his head a few moments behind himself as if it was briefly suspended in water. His voiced echoed off the icy rocks and projected across the icy valley around them.

He was still holding out the shirt for Tegan, but only part of it was transported. It was now vastly smaller than the one she was wearing. He stared at the perfectly severed edge of the fabric. This could of easily of been his arm. He looked to where Tegan dropped in at and gave her a look of ‘Eh, its the thought that counts’ and he held the shirt out to her with a broken smile.

--------------

The vacant spot that they were pulled from was rather quickly being filled by the unphased orcs that were next in line behind them. A large chunk of a shirt tumbled in the warm winds until it was met by a wet nose of a Fox. Kitchi, Val’s hunting fox, was shadowing Keovi since he arrived. Kitchi broke off into a full run into the distance trying to follow any sort of scents he could find track.

Half a shirt and one demonic summoning later, Tegan found herself attempting to shake yet another case of vertigo. She opened her eyes to Valendil's hand and the scrap of cloth left. She reached out to take the fabric, looking at it for a stunned moment. Had the situation been different, she may have laughed at the irony. Instead, she reflected back a look of 'You tried'.

She could hear Juniper's voice echoing in his ears and in her mind, seeming to reverberate there. The warlock's words were harsh and meant to scold. She watched as the Dark Priest grimaced at the tongue lashing.

Realization hit that she was standing in front of Juniper with half a shirt on and her hair done up in some fancy fashion. Appearance wise, she could only imagine how irresponsible she looked.

A wave of frustration hit her. Juniper had no knowledge of the happenings in Draenor; no knowledge of the potential threat to not only the documents, but to Elsee as well.

She was silent a long moment as her mind churned over this.

She heard Keovi's voice break the silence first.

"Lady Juniper." He began, attempting to appeal to his employer with a tone of voice to suggest he was about to make an excuse.

Tegan stepped forward and held up a hand to Keovi. "No." She cut him off short with a stern tone. Next, she looked at Juniper; her expression unreadable. The Commander had just dug herself out from one unrelenting superior; she wasn't about to grovel now.

"It is true. The mission to bring the documents through the portal is past your desired time frame." She started calmly but then her irritation filtered through into her next explanation. "However, had I not gone ahead and neutralized a problem this morning, the documents would be intercepted by a now denounced General. As well, an assault on both Elsee and Valendil was avoided. Coming back through, I took the curse alone. I have no idea what would have happened if the entire crew of us had been cursed at the same time; Blackshard wouldn't have been able to remove his own ailment and wouldn't have been able to save any of us."

Another pause as she stared Juniper down. "So, no. There will be no explanation of bad choices."

Keovi had borrowed the sight from his familiar and was staring at Tegan with his mouth slightly ajar with an astounded expression. Does she have a death-wish?

Juniper listened as Tegan explained the delay and then had the audacity to then say that there would BE NO explanation. The contradiction almost amused her. She stared right through Tegan with her pale glowing eyes. A curl pulled at her upper lip, but her restrained calm was palpable.

“Self-important child. There are some things larger than your own personal comfort.“ She walked calmly back over to the drawing on the ground and began to rub it out with her foot. “Casualties are expected. War is no time to show weakness.“ The summoning portal door soon vanished, leaving them all still standing out in the snow above a garrison in Frostwall. Cold air whipped around the group and Juniper turned back to face them all again.

“You two will take the documents to be sorted by Chronicler Kezak in the main hall.” She pointed to Tegan and Valendil.

“Eleanor, your father would like to see you. Don’t keep him waiting.” She pointed off in the direction of a building at the opposite end of the Garrison.

“Mister Blackshard, if you’d accompany me to my library?” With that, she lifted the hem of her robes a few inches and began down the rocks back into the garrison.

Elsee knew it was coming from a mile away. She just gave up, flopping into a cross-legged position. By the time her butt hit the floor, it was snowy stone. Her hair blew around her and into her face. She put her chin in her hands and rested her elbows on her knees.

Blah blah blah everyone’s mad.

It wasn’t until she heard her name called… her *cringe* other name. The one only her mother called her. She shifted her eyes up to her mother who instructed her to go see her father. She rolled her eyes and pulled herself off the ground, walking off in the direction of her mother’s point.

She had made it about half way when she felt a pinch on her rear. She tucked her hips forward, widening her eyes and giving a small yelp. A familiar face popped into view beside her, walking backwards. Her surprise melted into a smile.

“Ey Boss Babeh.” He greeted playfully.

“Rala.” She gave him a mischievous grin. The tall shadow hunter kept pace with her by walking backwards with a charming grin. He came to rest his elbow on her shoulder for added effect.  He looked over his shoulder in the direction she was walking.

“Where we beh goin’?” He asked her.

“To meet my Papa..” She replied reluctantly. He immediately pulled his elbow off of her and did a turn as he walked the other direction.

“Ooph. Nope! Good luck wit’ dat. Catcha latah… maybeh behind de barracks like las’ time, eh?” He gave her a wink before clapping his hands together and pointing at her. She gave him the best smile she could muster.

“If you’re lucky!” She turned back to keep going, her smile disappeared as soon as he couldn’t see her face. She drew in one last long, deep breath and walked up to the building where her father awaited her.

Valendil stood watching everyone disperse. The wind at his back his hair whipped around his face, he swayed squinting in thought. He looked to Tegan, seeing her standing in the frozen cold all dolled up. Hell of a week. He undid his leather tunic, he held it out to her silently.

“This...” He pointed to the smeared outline of markings on the floor that was created by Juni “This right here, why did we not do this on day one.” He pulled his undershirt he had on up close to his neck. The wind went right through it. He shook his head and blew hot air into his hands to give a weak attempt at warming them.

He crouched down in a position that indicated he was going to lift the side of the document crate. He put his elbows on the edge leaning on them, squishing his face. He waited for Tegan for a team lift.

Keovi followed after Juniper without another word spoken. He intended to fully explain the happenings at the portal gate once they were inside; if Juniper was even willing to hear it.

-------------------------------------

The backlash from standing up to Juniper was expected. What Tegan wasn't prepared for was the sudden drop back into a Garrison that wasn't hers.

“You two will take the documents to be sorted by Chronicler Kezak in the main hall.”

"Understood." She confirmed but then allowed her gaze to wander the Garrison. Chronicler Kezak wasn't a familiar name to her and so she was attempting to pick out any terrain that might give her a frame of reference.

“This right here, why did we not do this on day one.”

She looked back at Valendil. The stoic expression she had kept for Juniper hadn't quite left her features yet. Her lips parted to offer an explanation but then closed again and the glare in her eyes softened.

"Let's deliver the crate. After that..." She grimaced slightly, admitting. "...I have a lot of explaining to do."

She accepted the tunic he was holding and pulled it tight around her shoulders. She briefly wondered how Elsee wouldn't freeze to death in these type of "outfits".

She watched him start toward the crate and immediately followed him, shadowing his movements so that she could help lift the object.

Despite the entire situation, she smiled ever so slightly and side glanced him with an apologetic gaze as they carted the haul up to the main building. "Welcome to Draenor."
