Vladimir: Ionian Fervor – 28

10 Sep

Vladimir grabbed Irelia’s hand and gently pulled her back towards him. The Kinkou continued marching in front of them, apparently not noticing that the two had slowed down. The evening light was waning and the sunset on the horizon was beautiful. In the final, soft rays of sunlight, it was easy to forget what they had to do.

Irelia looked surprised at first, but smiled and said, “What is it?” Vlad looked ahead, not wishing to be overheard. “I just wanted to know how you’re feeling. Tomorrow is going to be a big day.” Irelia’s face didn’t betray any emotion, and she said softly, “It is one of the most important in Ionian history. We have to trust that the others are taking care of business and none of this will be wasted.”

Vlad smiled at her and they walked in silence for a few minutes. He thought back throughout his life. Until a few months ago, everything in his life had been dedicated to himself. He had killed for the thrill, become a hemomancer to fill that gaping hole inside of him, and then had become a Noxian mercenary just to have a home. When he first joined Talon, he had felt a sense of purpose greater than anything he had experienced before.

Then Riven came. At first he had only been doing his job of trying to bring her into the Crimson Elite fold, but as he got to know her, things had changed. She had been so honest and straightforward. Her actions were sincerely for the good of Noxus, and seeing the way she worked made Vlad want to change. As they got to know each other, she became his first real friend. He had sacrificed his new home to protect her, and once he’d ended up here, Irelia came into his life.

Maybe he was simply more open now that he’d made his first friend, but Irelia had simply caught his attention. He wanted to protect her now from this battle, but he knew there was nothing he could do. Irelia was fighting for her home, and Vlad would do whatever it took to help her with that.

They kept walking and the sun went down. They reached an area just outside of the town when Akali stopped before them. “We must wait here for tonight.” Vlad merely nodded and everyone settled in to rest. Vlad sat up against a tree and Irelia leaned against his chest. He smiled and drifted off to sleep, enjoying the calm before tomorrow’s whirlwind.

I’ve gotta admit, those sarcastic comments made me laugh :). Have a good one summoners, and I promise there’s a long one coming tomorrow.
