Chateau Grief 291

Narration(Kore): Xander has a destiny. There’s a reason he’s a telepath. He’s a servant of the forces of this thaumaturge.

Narration(Kore): He’ll spend his life in this vague shadowy well between worlds. Guarding a gate.

Narration(Kore): And I’ll spend my eternity here too, in the cold shadows at the bottom of the icy pit.

Narration(Kore): Looking up at the impossibly faraway edge.

Narration(Kore): And I’d see his gray eyes gleaming back at me through the half gloom.

Narration(Kore): and we couldn’t live like that. But we’d have too.

Kore: It would be better if Ves forgot all about me.

Marozi: Yes. It’s a dangerous cruel game to play with a man’s heart. Or an Angle’s

Marozi: Almost as desperate as what your grandfather did for you.

Kore: He’s here?

Marozi: Good heavens no.

Kore: Rafe…I will do everything I can to protect Ves Xander as for the rest, I have only my faith, and my desperate hope that you’re wrong.

Marozi: You have my faith too.

Marozi: But for today, you’re only human. You’re going to wreck Xander for me. Make him want to forget you.

Kore: How about I wreck him and stop the riot?

Marozi: Deal. Show me what you’ve got.

Author Notes:

And just like that, she wins the battle Xander asked her for help on.  Everything's got a price.

characters: Kore, Marozi

Episode Recap: 

Weird land is ending soon I promise. Actually Today.  We have kaleidoscopes.  We have vocab.  We have Xander in scarlet.  We have Kore sorta locked in ice, or that’s what it’s supposed to look like.  There’s that nice little twirl of smoke arising from the big hole in the ground.  Xander and Kore are doing the Romeo and Juliet, and figuring out just what ‘star crossed’ actually means in astrology.  So Kore actually gets it.  She’ll cooperate.  She swears an oath.  After a brief back and forth with Marozi, they decide on a strategy.  Or actually, it was Xander who decided the strategy needed to have the permission slip signed so to speak, asked Kore to get Rafe to agree and presumably forgot to stipulate what she could promise or not.  Minor oversight.  I’m sure he can fix this later.
