November 8th, 2:32am

Lexicus sits on a rock near the earth circle. The night air is cool and a light breeze causes him to pull his cloak tighter to his body. His lantern and staff laid beside him, the young elf sits and watches. It's been almost 3 weeks and still no sign of Champion Ardin. The circle looked well enough as far as he could tell. He doesn't expect anyone or anything to come by this late at night, however he remains sitting and watching. He glances over in the direction of Ardin's empty hut. These circles are important, he thinks, their magic must be protected. He isn't sure when or if his friend would return but he will watch over his circle until he does. Lexicus had checked the air circle earlier that night as well. He hasn't heard anyone speak of Champion Auron's return, although he has been spending much of his time avoiding the townsfolk. Perhaps a bit more time to allow the survivor hatred to die down. He knows not all of town shuns him, but thinking back to his last encounter with Kez... He doesn't know how much more of that he could bear. Lexicus breathes deeply, he could use this time to meditate and grow closer to the earth. He closes his eyes.

The quiet night is broken by the sounds of footsteps coming from the direction of the arluru pack. Rudi decided to come to Holdfast- she's been here a couple times these past few weeks, but tonight she felt like coming down late. Very few people awake at this time, which suits her needs tonight. Maybe she'll think, or watch stars, or meditate at the circles.

She likes starting or ending with Earth especially if she went to water. Earth is steady.
She's surprised, then, to see Lexicus. "Hanyou, Lexicus." She says, a bit quietly. "I didn't expect anyone to be here. Most people are asleep by now. What are you doing up so late?"

Rudi takes a seat next to him. Though she's not a survivor, there is no disdain in her voice or body as she sits next to him.

Lexicus' head makes a quick turn upon hearing Rudi's approaching footsteps. Once he sees there is no threat, he turns back to the earth circle and continues to breathe deeply. "Greetings, Rudi," the elf replies, "I am keeping watch over the earth circle in the absence of our earth champion." He recalls hearing that Rudi had not survived Nero's attack. He keeps his eyes on the circle and doesn't meet her gaze. "What brings you here tonight?"

"Oh! That makes sense." She sighs slightly. "Maybe we'll be lucky and he's been here the whole time? Just... in the ground for 3 weeks." She briefly looks up at the sky, stars visible through the trees. "I come down to ahtta Holdfast a lot late at night. It's... peaceful. My pack is peaceful, too, but the circles are nice to sit at when everyone's asleep."

Not to mention, it gives her time to think about what happened three weeks ago. That was still on her mind. "When there's a lot on my mind like this, it's nice to just be able to think. Not that I mind your company! I like you, you can stay." She laughs.

Lexicus gives a slight smile and looks over to Rudi. "Thank you, I like you as well." Lexicus pauses to think for a moment. "Rudi? Verbena mentioned the other day that you may know something about Ardin fleeing. Is there anything you can tell me?" His tone is questioning but not accusatory.

She smiles a wide smile back at him.

"Yeah. I.. fucked up, said something, and he ran away. I think he was going to anyways, he was pretty upset. But I really didn't help." She sighs. "He killed me and Theo before that, and before that he was sick, and before that Nero made us play a fucked up game. I was in the woods during most of the game, so I don't really know much about what happened there."

Rudi puts her head on her knees. She feels less bad for sure, but she can't help but still feel a little bit guilty. "He didn't have a sword or shield or anything with him. Not even a cloak. I'm..  pretty worried, to be honest. I'm sure he's strong, but it's cold out this time of year."

Lexicus' smile has faded and he now has a look of concern. "He is a powerful mage, although I do not know if he has his spellbook. Without that he would be unable to do magic, like myself." Lexicus ponders. "He is a psychic as well however, perhaps those abilities will assist him. I'm not as familiar with that power." Lexicus sighs. "We fought each other that night he was possessed by Nero. I do not recall the outcome however, I awoke elsewhere without knowing how I got there." He pauses. "Do you remember what you said to him before he ran?"

Rudi rubs the back of her head. "He's also probably good at surviving but... in his current state, I don't know how good he is at doing that. I don't know where he keeps his spellbook; so i'm not sure if he ran off with it." She looks at Lexicus. "A dumb joke. I was processing a lot and when i'm... going through stuff, I joke about it. Lesson learned, not everyone does that. While we're on the topic, though.."

She looks away again, biting her lip. "If he comes back can you tell him I want to talk to him? Or at least... let me know he's back if you see me around?" She needs to apologize to him. If he comes back, that is.. if he's even still alive. Rudi sighs and shakes her head, forcing a small smile onto her face. No need to make herself sick over it.

"I will be sure to, after I speak with him myself." Lexicus says with a nod. He tries to relax a bit, letting his gaze wander up towards the stars. He breathes deeply and lets himself feel the night air.

"Thank you." Rudi lets her eyes wander up to the stars as well. It was a nice night... "I'll go stargaze elsewhere, it seems like you would like some time alone. Thanks again, Lexicus. I'll see you around." And to be quite honest, she also wanted time alone to think. Especially if the sky was this clear. She smiles at him and walks off towards the field.
