Vladimir: Ionian Fervor – 20

21 Aug

The two had run for two days straight, and according to Irelia were now near the coast. Vlad didn’t want to stay in any one spot too long, but the two needed a break, so he thought they’d settle in for the night a little early. He doubted anyone would follow, but at this point, they needed to regroup to figure out what they intended to do. He should’ve seen Karma’s double cross coming, but had been distracted by everything happening.

He was still furious with himself, but Irelia’s company made him feel a little better. He was falling for her, but was worried that it wasn’t a good idea. The two of them were very different, and he didn’t know what his plan was after helping Ionia through the war. He pushed all that aside and said, “Let’s camp here for the night.”

They were in the middle of the forest he and Lee Sin had stayed in, but much further west. As they sat down for the night, Irelia sat down hard against the tree, bumping her head. She exclaimed and rubbed her head lightly and Vlad started laughing. Irelia tried to give him an angry look but soon ended up laughing along with him. They began to laugh harder and harder, letting out all the tension they’d felt from the last two days, and by the end, were on the ground, holding their sides.

Irelia straightened up, tears coming out of her eyes. “Thank you. I needed that.” Vlad composed himself and said, “Well. What do we do now? We have no chances to do anything helpful while we’re outcasts like this.” Irelia nodded and said, “I’m worried now. We barely survived the last invasion, and we were all working together then. Losing Master Yi is a huge blow, and with us being outcasts…” She paused, taking a deep breath. “I don’t think we can hold out.”

Vlad got up, walked over to her and put an arm around her consolingly. “Well, at least we can have some reinforcements if Riven and Lee are successful. Riven’s also a tough girl. Talon would have failed without her on his side, and that’s saying something if a man with his talent needed her.” Irelia nodded and nestled her head in his chest. They didn’t say anything more, and slowly drifted off to sleep, enjoying each other’s company in these dark times.

**********

The next morning, Vlad woke up to find Irelia gone. He panicked for a moment before he realized if she had been kidnapped, he would’ve been taken as well. He stood up, stretched a bit and Irelia came walking back into view. Vlad smiled, genuinely happy to see her. “Well, you know the area better than I. What should we do now?” She hesitated, a pensive look crossing her face. “I really don’t know. I don’t think we should stay in one spot, but where do you think we should go?”

Vlad shrugged and said, “Let’s go north. That seems like the dumbest way to go given the invasion forces, so I doubt they’d expect us to do it.” Irelia assented and the two began walking north. They walked for about an hour when Vlad saw a stone temple in the distance. He asked Irelia about it and she gasped. “Vlad, we need to leave, I’ve made an awful mistake.” He didn’t ask any questions and the two turned and began to run.

Suddenly, the sky around them went from a blazing midday sun to pitch black. A disembodied voice that appeared to be coming from everywhere at once said, “Tread carefully.” Another, slightly higher pitched voice rang out, “Their final moments approach.” Vlad wasn’t sure what was going on, but put himself on the defensive. He felt Irelia tensing up next to him and finally, a woman’s voice said, “We’ve found a necessary sacrifice.”

There you guys go :). Hopefully you’re still enjoying these, because the Ionian Fervor is going to be long xD. Have a good one summoners.

    Oh, and for some odd reason, I would totally buy VladxRiven, but not VladxIrelia… Not sure why, but I suppose I would say something is lacking on interests or something… Meh, can’t explain myself properly 🙂
