Startigress threw herself to the side in a vain attempt to
avoid the falling blade.  Throwing her buckler over her face
to ward off the sword she missed the huge black bastard sword
that caught the guards weapon.  Rolling away and to her feet
she noticed the tall black haired woman now engaged with the
warrior.  Not very interested in questioning her good luck
she spun on the balls of her feet coming at the guard from
the opposite side of the strange green eyed warrior.
 
Together the two seasoned striders made quick work of the
guard.  Breathing deep to catch her breath she looked at
the new arrival.
 
Well that was fun, thanks, but who are you.
 
Star noticed the sewn patch of a PlayerKiller on the woman's
shoulder and considered if this was going to get messy.
Still if the green eyed warrior wanted to kill her, it
would have been easier a few moments ago when she was engaged
with the guard.
 
Vaper, I followed you here, I was curious.
 
Startigress raised an eyebrow at that short, unilluminating
answer from the tall woman and said;
 
Yeah well I'm Startigress and I need to go talk to someone
in here, they weren't letting me.
 
Vaper nodded and they both turned as a furious voice followed
by a more furious red haired dwarf rolled in.
 
GODS BE DAMNED YE ALL, I TOLD THAT SKINNY, PLATE EATING
WIZARDESS NOT TO GET STARTED WITHOUT ME!
 
Startigress watched the red faced dwarf priestess stomp into
the room and glare at them both.  Hapsor huffed and shouted again
 
I KNEW IT, I KNEW IT! I TOLD THAT WOMIN THAT I WANTED TO TALK TO
HIM TOO AND WHAT DOES SHE DO....SEND YA ALL WITHOUT ME!
 
Star grinned at the priest and said,
 
Well we didn't get far, and now here you are, all is good right!
 
Hapsor narrowed her eyes at the strider and grumbled;
 
We're not done with this! Lets get going and go talk with him.
 
Vaper only watched the interplay between the two with a cool look
and a raised eyebrow.  Hapsor looked the strider up and down
noticing the symbol of Vector on her tunic.  Narrowing her eyes
the dwarf turned on Star;
 
Whatta be hanging out with this sort of company girl?
 
Star smiled at the surly dwarf before saying;
 
I guess she's here to help, but its sure good to see you, I need
a bit of your healing magic priestess if you don't mind.
 
Hapsor continued to look suspiciously at the black haired human
as she moved to inspect Star's wounds sending waves of healing
energy through the striders body.  The black haired Vector had
a small smug smile on her face as she rifled the guards belt for
his keys.  While the priestess was busy she moved to unlock and
open the doors looking for the strider.
 
A bellow down the hall rolled down even through the locked and
shut doors;
 
ARE YOU HERE TO BREAK ME OUT!?!
 
Star rolled her eyes, so much for stealth as more guards stormed
out from deeper in the hall.  The trio moved in a triangle to
protect each other's backs as they met the drawn steel of the
approaching warriors.
