Arveene Myskada Sits on a bench in Suzail with friends. Mystogan curled up against her sleeping as he was wont to do, whilst Shiv and Arveene converse quietly until their conversation is interrupted when she is handed an urgent message directing her to head immediately to Greatgaunt. The note hastily written she recognizes is in her fiancee Patrick's handwriting. What follows is the result of that meeting.
Patrick Houghton: Arveene.
Patrick Houghton: *said rather coldly, his helm's face showing signs of worry and sadness*
Patrick Houghton: *it looks like he's been pacing back and forth*
Arveene Myskada: *Smiling at the sight of him until he used her name as he did*
Arveene Myskada: Patrick? *Her face looking worried*
Arveene Myskada: What's wrong?
Patrick Houghton: *removes his helm*
Patrick Houghton: I .... I don't want to do this to you, but I must... I am going to have to leave Cormyr. Most likely for over a year.
Arveene Myskada: What? Why?
Patrick Houghton: There are signs that have pointed to some of Nysarra's clan still being alive.
Patrick Houghton: You are my entire world. I had to tell you this personally.
Patrick Houghton: They are supposed to be located in the Spine of the World far to the northwest.
Patrick Houghton: Its possible that Nysarra may be with them... I never did find her body that day.
Arveene Myskada: *Her chest heaving some and tears welling in the corner of her eyes she nods listening*
Patrick Houghton: *his own eyes also welling with tears*
Patrick Houghton: I'd ask you to come with me, but I know you have work here.
Arveene Myskada: *Kisses him softly for quite a while*
Patrick Houghton: *returns the kiss affectionately*
Arveene Myskada: Go... I... you wouldn't be happy with me here anyway. Find your wife Patrick. I love you and I swear to you that I pray for your happiness.
Patrick Houghton: Just know it isn't about you. I love you with all my heart.
Arveene Myskada: I know you do.
Patrick Houghton: Here... please. take this *he hands arveene his helmet*
Arveene Myskada: *Looks at it then looks at him* Are you... are you sure?
Patrick Houghton: I am. I need your support.
Arveene Myskada: *Hugs him tightly*
Patrick Houghton: It completely tears my heart in two to do this to you.
Patrick Houghton: *hugs arveene back*
Patrick Houghton: But if Nysarra is still alive...
Patrick Houghton: *is noticably crying*
Arveene Myskada: Do not concern yourself with me. I will survive, and know that I am torn to see you go, and yet happy for you as well. You have hope. Go find her Patrick.
Arveene Myskada: *seems she's not telling everything*
Patrick Houghton: I know you'll be hurt... I know you're feeling what I am.
Patrick Houghton: *looks into Arveene's eyes*
Patrick Houghton: Will you be able to fight for me while I cannot?
Arveene Myskada: Of course.
Arveene Myskada: Oh love there is so much more... but it is not a pain you need to carry. I love you... go find her. *Her love for him can be seen in her eyes, but something else as well behind... something she is hiding.
Patrick Houghton: I know you well enough to know you're not telling the whole truth.
Arveene Myskada: *Bursts into tears* Trust me when I say it no longer matters. I love you, I always have, always will.
Patrick Houghton: *holds arveene tenderly, like its the end of the world*
Patrick Houghton: I love you too.
Arveene Myskada: Now go... before I refuse to let you go.
Patrick Houghton: I will always remember you.
Patrick Houghton: *lets go of arveene slowly*
Arveene Myskada: I will never forget you.
Arveene Myskada: *Watches him walk away until he fades from sight*
