Going Deeper Into The Mountain

Sunday was a rough day. The best way to describe it is I had blown off a lot of charge. Where I was running as fast as I can on Saturday, building up charge, on Sunday I was coming down. I wanted to keep running away for all the things that still trouble me, but I finally had to just sit down and let things catchup with me.

So, I headed to the place where I knew I’d find some peace, Calas, and shortly after I arrived, I came across the owners Truck & Tymus. It was a nice exchange. Truck remembered me from our IM chat a few days ago and I let him know that I’d posted a couple of photos from Teahouse of the August Moon play. We chatted briefly then I headed off on my newest adventure, which lead me to the southernmost part of the Dimril Dale sim.

In Dimril Dale I found this little house by the sea.
Right at the water’s edge I sat for awhile and worked on my hosting gestures.
Last night I was very happy to be back co-hosting for Miss Luci,
and I wanted to add some character graphics to the gestures.

Froggie dropped by to visit with me for a few minutes, but then he was off to visit with other members in his Spawn. hehe. I could have spent the night here by the sea. It felt so comfortable but my wandering bones were getting that itchy feeling as they do. And so I left my cozy home and began hiking toward the Misty Mountains.

I stopped to just revel at the islands I had yet to visit,
before crossing into the forest leading to the Misty Mountains.
I travelled to the secret cave that leads deep into the mountain.
When I got there, I found my new friend the vampire, waiting.
I changed into a tantalizing dress, and we wandered deeper still.

The cave is unlike anything you are likely to find inworld. It is dark and the entrance is not so easy to notice. I missed it the first few times I came to the Misty Mountains. The cave is very long, broken occasionally by dangerous little pools. If you step on the wrong rocks, you can fall deep into the underwater reservoir. The vampire seems to enjoy being with me. Today he gave me a beautiful pentagram pendant necklace. He continues to assure me that he will not bite me but I know I’m playing with great danger.

We exited the vast caverns at the far end of the caves,
and found an inviting pavilion with a tea and saki waiting.

I started to prepare some tea for my dark friend, but he asked for saki instead. So, I performed the proper saki serving procedure I’d learned years ago when I was an apprentice geisha. Surprisingly, my friend demonstrated again his manners and knowledge of other cultures. While he was relaxing his neck, I took a moment to study his face.

He calls himself, “Sin” and he is an enchanting man.
I’m at once drawn to him and fear him.

I must go now. I know I’ve left many loose ends in the telling of this story, but I will pull all the pieces together soon.
