Larisah Concert, 2/10/2001, Daerlynn’s Concert Series, Arthe Hollow Inn

As transcribed by Mykk Dalys

 

It has been 364 years, 81 days since the Victory of Lanival the Redeemer.

It is the 3rd month of Lirisa the Archer in the year of the Silver Unicorn.

It is currently spring and it is approaching sunrise.

 

The sky is clear.

 

[Arthe Hollow Inn, Common Room]

The room is filled with long, low tables and stools, where several people sit eating hearty bowls of Arthe Hollow's popular lamb stew.  A large stone fireplace dominates one wall.  Daisy Burdock, the inn's cook and waitress, crosses the room carrying a precarious arrangement of bowls and plates.  She stops briefly to tease and joke with a regular customer.  A sign is posted prominently next to the archway.  You also see a wooden menuboard, a polished wooden bar, some wooden stairs, and an open doorway.

Your mind hears Melindrha thinking, "Come see the incomperable Larisah, in concert at the Arthe Hollow Inn, starting soon"

Your mind hears Melindrha thinking, "We're still short a few people, specifically you, at the Arthe Hollow Inn.  Free concert, free food and booze!"

Your mind hears Larisah thinking, "Free kisses?"

Your mind hears Melindrha thinking, "::laughs::  that's your call, as the performer"

Your mind hears Larisah thinking, "Hmmm.. I guess they would have to bring a note from Joubeyrt, saying it was okay."

Your mind hears Melindrha thinking, "Concert at the Arthe Hollow Inn, a step north and a step east from the gate to the Dale.  All are welcome!"

 

 

Daerlynn says, "I        Wanted to thank you all for coming tonight!! I know this is a rough night, what with the Thief dance... and the auction.."

Daerlynn says, "Tonight we have a wonderful person.. and Bard.. to give us of her talents.  Most of you know Larisah... "

Daerlynn says, "Larisah... was always an inspiration to me, as a person growing up here...  I could not ever begin to tell her how much I owe her..."

Larisah says, "Nothing, but a smooch."

Daerlynn blushes a bright red color.

Larisah hums to herself.

Daerlynn gives Larisah a smooch.

Larisah lets out a deep sigh of contentment.

Daerlynn exclaims, "So....  without further talking from me... Larisah!!"

Daerlynn gets an impish expression on her face, and lets out a hearty cheer.

 

 

 

 

[back to Set List]

Larisah says, "Glad you can make it, and I will just jump right in with my first story."

 

Larisah smiles softly as she announces her tale, 'The Babe and The Dark.'

Larisah smiles with a far off look in her eyes.

 

Larisah quietly says, "A frayed green ribbon was fluttering in the breeze, caught upon a scrawny branch.  The pale skinned elf, sitting upon a night-black horse bent over to caress it gently.  'She is near,' he quietly said.  'Soon again, she will be mine.'  Breathing in deep, he made his way deeper into the forest, following a trail only he could sense.  "

 

(Larisah pushes a bit of stray hair behind her pointed ear and straightens her shoulders with a quick smile.)

 

Larisah matter-of-factly says, "There was once a time when a man and woman were brought together in fixed marriages, for mutual benefit and advancement of the family line.  Those who rebelled against it were expelled by their families and sent out to fend for themselves. "

 

Larisah says, "One such was a maid named Emara.  She was not a beauty, nor one who would go against her family's wishes.  She felt though, she had no choice when her family wished her to wed the elven Dark Lord Malvs.  "

 

Larisah darkly says, "Lord Malvs was such a man that mothers would use his name to frighten small children into behaving.  Rich and powerful he was, but was seemingly born without a heart.  He cared for nothing but his lands and his beasts.  Women were but chattel to him."

 

(Larisah inhales sharply.)

 

Larisah says, "Gathering her belongings, Emara crept out her home before the sun could rise. With a deep sigh of regret, she sets out to find shelter among distant relatives.  She knew that never again would she see her family, but the alternative was far worse."

 

Larisah says, "Lord Malvs, was extremely angered by they news of her departure.  A mark upon his honor he would not stand. He took their youngest daughter as recompense; a beautiful babe with dark brown curls and eyes the color of jade.  Her name was Emerie; she was only a few years old when she became the intended of the Dark Lord Malvs.  "

 

Larisah slowly says, "He took her to his castle dark, ashen gray stone cold as death.  A fortress impenetrable by any, as noted by the many graves scattered about his lands. Not a sound did Emerie make as she was thrust into the hands of a waiting nurse."

 

Larisah says, "The nurse, a poor woman from a near by village, held the babe to her.  A tear in her eye as she took her up to her new room.  Up the dark stairs, climbing high into the highest tower, there to Emerie's room they went.  A plain room, but warm and made comfortable by the nurse, who had much love to share with her new young charge."

 

Larisah says, "Lord Malvs was a busy man, but wished to mold his future wife to his specifications.  Knowing that she was far too young to learn much, he left her in the care of the nurse.  With his most trusted advisor Thorn checking up on them."

 

Larisah says, "The babe Emerie was a happy child; she adapted well to her new surroundings.  Those around her could not but giggle at her antics.  The things that she did..the faces she made.  Even Thorn could not help but laugh when she was found digging up treasures in the garden, all dirty but proud that she had found an old gate key."

 

Larisah smiles gently, followed with a fleeting look of pain.

 

Larisah says, "Sadly, Emerie could not stay a child, something beneath Lord Malvs notice.  As she grew he took a more active role in her education.  He had her learn music, art, and dance.  He believed she did not need to learn much more then that.  "

 

Larisah says, "Emerie though had different ideas.  She read books from the massive library, worked around the garden tending all sorts of plants, and kept herself away from him, as much as possible.  She grew up to be one smart young lady."

 

Larisah says, "The years went by swiftly for young Emerie.  Too soon, Lord Malvs introduced her to his world, at the tender age of 25 . Silent echoes of her steps as she climbed down the creaking stairs.  She gulped as she came to the door that separated her life from his."

 

Larisah says, "Gently knocking, she heard come in, and opened up the door slowly.  Candles flickering along the walls, a giant round table laid with golden placing, soft thick rugs upon the floor.  There he sat, the master of this castle, the Dark Lord Malvs.  Golden hair he had with eyes a dark storm blue, he looked at her silently and gestured for her to be seated.  "

 

Larisah firmly says, "'Each night you will dine with me, each night you will sing for me, I will hear of your day and you will hear of mine' he said firmly. 'When you reach the age of 35 you will become my bride and bare my future sons, and you will obey me in all things.'"

 

Larisah says, "Each night came, and she did as he wished.  She sang to him sweet songs of love, and tales of warriors strong.  Each night she told him of her learnings and her garden growing.  Then she would sit and listen as he told her of his days."

 

(Larisah pauses briefly, a frown creases her brow as she continues on.)

 

Larisah darkly says, "'This day the village of Arthe decided not to pay their dues, I sent my men to take from them all their taffleberries and stomp each one.  Only one or two halflings got in the way, so not much challenge for my men,' was one such day of his."

 

(Larisah inhales deeply and glances hesitantly at the crowd, hoping not to offend any lovely halflings.)

 

Larisah says, "As time went by though, his stories were less of murder and woe.  There were funny stories of folks he knew.  Stories of battles in which his father fought.  Emerie was getting to enjoy his company, and he hers.  Those around Lord Malvs were in a bit of a shock to find him gazing at her tenderly.  Emerie was getting to look forward to the day they would wed."

 

Larisah says, "Thus, the time flew, as it is wont to do.  Her 35th birthday was just a few days away when she heard the news.  Her older sister Emara had been found, dead in her home, with a dagger of Lord Malvs in her chest. Shocked into the realization that the man she was going to marry could do such a thing, she knew she had to get away."

 

(Larisah gazes at the crowd with a look of sadness and shakes her head slowly.)

 

Larisah says, "Early the next morning, Emerie slipped out to her garden with her sturdiest cloths on.  She took the old key she had found when she was younger and unlocked the old Iron Gate.  Slipping slightly on the dew covered grass; she climbed down an old worn, trail and entered the surrounding forest. "

 

Larisah says, "The dark woods were filled with lots of game, and creatures that the Lord had imported for his sport.  Some of the creatures he himself made with the bones of old enemies.  Of course, Emerie knew none of this, just that it seemed the best place to hide in.  "

 

Larisah says, "When Lord Malvs found out that Emerie had fled, he first felling was one of disbelief.  He then grew into a rage so intense the servants went into hiding.  His man Thorn, tried to keep him from chasing her down but was unsuccessful.  Lord Malvs climbed on his massive black stallion and set of in search of her."

 

Larisah says, "Thorn, knowing Emerie would not have fled unless something had provoked her, started to look into the reasons of her leaving.  In his search he found that one of the maids had told her the story of her sister Emara.  Thorn knew that Emara was not dead, but in fact married to someone in a nearby village."

 

Larisah leans forward.

 

Larisah says, "It turned out the maid was in the employ of one of Lord Malvs rivals, and she had been sent there to disrupt his happiness.  Thorn set out with a group of men to find his lord, before it was too late. He left saying a prayer on his lips, something he rarely did."

 

Larisah slowly says, "A frayed green ribbon was fluttering in the breeze, caught upon a scrawny branch.  The pale skinned elf, sitting upon a night-black horse bent over to caress it gently.  'She is near,' he quietly said.  'Soon again, she will be mine.'  Breathing in deep, he made his way deeper into the forest, following a trail only he could sense.  "

 

Larisah says, "He followed her trail deeper into the dark forest, leaving his mount behind to make his way through the twisting branches and thick leafed limbs.  He could smell her sweet scent upon the air; she had been this way.  'I only hope that I reach her first,' he thought."

 

Larisah says, "Emerie grew a little tired and decided to hide under some bushes near a huge rock to rest.  Covering herself with what leaves she could find she closed her eyes, meaning only to rest briefly.  Asleep beneath some thorny bushes, Emerie was found."

 

Larisah says, "She was not found by Lord Malvs, nor by Thorn, but by one of the forest creatures.  A big burly man with the look of an oak tree.  He had scattered about him leaves of many colors and arms like thick tree limbs.  He spied her and smiled madly. "

 

Larisah says, "Just then, came the Dark Lord drawing his sword to engage the Oak man.  'I will be the one to deal with her, not you,' he said angrily.  The man's eyes did flare red with hate as he turned round to Lord Malvs. He remembered well the man who made him into this creature he was now."

 

Larisah says, "Feigning sleep, did Emerie listen, to the battle between the two.  Opening her eyes slowly she gazed at then in wonder.  A dance between two dangerous foes was sight to see.  She crept carefully out of the thorny bushes and moved quietly to get away."

 

Larisah says, "The man, noticing that his prize was getting away, turned and came at her.  She fell to the left and rolled, her dress torn by the Giant's wicked sword, she screamed. Lord Malvs charged forward placing himself between her and the giant tree man. The Giant, then with a mighty roar plunged his sword right through Lord Malvs' armor."

 

Larisah says, "A churning in the forest, a wail of distress, in enters Thorn and his men to confront the beast that was once a man, and bring him down.  Distracting the thing from his kill, Thorn plunges his pike in deep, along with 3 others.  Screams of battle and the death cry of the giant filled the once quiet forest.  "

 

Larisah says, "Lord Malvs gazing down at himself in shock, fallen upon the ground, finds himself in the lap of his Emerie.  Silent tears fall down her face, as she tries to staunch the blood from his death wound.  Thorn approaches his master with a look of sadness in his eyes."

 

Larisah says, "'My lord, it would seem, that young Emerie here was told that you had killed her sister Emara.  She fled thinking that you had done this deed.  Emerie, my dear, your sister is yet alive and well, in a village not far from here.' he told them, wincing at the anguish in both their eyes. "

 

Larisah says, "With a gasp of pain, the lord did gaze into the eyes of his love and she into his.  'My love, this is for the best.  I am not a good man; I am far too gone for you.  In you, I did find some good in my life and I thank you for that.  Please remember you are my goodness.' he said with this last breath. "

 

Larisah says, "'I love you, dear Malvs,' she whispered as she kissed his still warm lips, her tears silently falling. 'I will be your goodness,' she vowed quietly to his departed soul. "

 

(Larisah gazes out into the crowd, then smiles softly as she continues on.)

 

Larisah says, "Emerie did her best to right Lord Malvs wrongs, often was she seen about spreading his wealth to those in need.  She always had a slight sadness in her eyes, but a smile on her face to those she came upon.  It was said that she an impulsive person at times, and had last been seen boarding a ship one day, sailing to parts unknown."

 

Larisah curtsies to Daerlynn.

Larisah curtsies.

Larisah says, "I rarely get to tell stories, and that is one of my favorites."

 

 

 

 

[back to Set List]

Larisah asks, "Anyone want to sing with me?"

Larisah says, "I will do a funny one, it is not an original, but its fun."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Oh a Busker clad in kilt left a bar one evening fair

     And one could tell by how he walked that he'd drunk more than his share

     He stumbled 'round until he could no longer keep his feet

     He stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street"

 

Daerlynn's alto and Larran's baritone join with Larisah's soprano as she sings:

 

    "Ring di diddle liddle aye dee oh! Ring di diddly aye oh!

     He stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street"

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "About that time two young and lovely girls just happened by

     One said to the other with a twinkle in her eye

     "See yon sleeping Busker, so strong and handsome built

     I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt"

 

Larisah hums to herself.

 

Daerlynn's alto and Larran's baritone join with Larisah's soprano as she sings:

 

    "Ring di diddle liddle are dee oh! Ring di diddly aye oh!

     I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt"

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "They crept up on that sleeping Busker quiet as could be

     Lifted up his kilt about an inch so they could see

     And what was there for them to view beneath his Bardic skirt?

     'Twas nothin' more than the Gods had graced him with upon his birth"

 

Daerlynn's alto and Larran's baritone join with Larisah's soprano as she sings:

 

    "Ring di diddle liddle aye dee oh! Ring di diddly aye oh!

     'Twas nothin' more than the Gods had graced him with upon his birth"

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "They marvelled for a moment then one said, We must be gone

     Let's leave a present for our friend before we move along

     As a gift they left a blue silk ribbon tied into a bow

     Around the bonny star the Bard's kilt did lift and show"

 

Kerus's tenor, Daerlynn's alto and Larran's baritone join with Larisah's soprano as she sings:

 

    "Ring di diddle liddle aye dee oh! Ring di diddly aye oh!

     Around the bonny star the Bard's kilt did lift and show"

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "The Busker woke to nature's call and stumbled towards the trees

     Behind the bush he lifts his kilt and gawks at what he sees

     And in a startled voice he cries to what's before his eyes

     Oh, Lad I don't know where you've been, but I see you won first prize!"

 

Kerus's tenor, Daerlynn's alto and Larran's baritone join with Larisah's soprano as she sings:

 

    "Ring di diddle liddle aye dee oh! Ring di diddly aye oh!

     Oh, Lad I don't know where you've been, but I see you won first prize!"

 

Larisah winks.

 

 

 

 

[back to Set List]

Larisah asks, "Whose up for another story?"

 

Larisah says, "I can see it now in my minds eye, the young vengeful maiden with a sword by her side.  Tired of war and tired of hunger, she raised her voice to the skies and cried out loud."

 

Larisah chants in a soprano voice:

 

    "I call the dragon of the dark, oh beast of fable and of lore, I call for thee to come"

      "Grey Drake of the Darken Moon, Come to me answer my cry."

 

Larisah says, "Over and over she did chant, the screeching of dark ravens accompanying her voice.  Finally, her cries grew weak with her voice near to giving out she fell to her knees."

 

Larisah says, "Her sword dropped slowly to the ground, as the tears fell silently from her dark eyes.  "Please hear me, you are final choice, my soul is yours for one small simple boon.""

 

Larisah says, "Thus did darkness fall silently all around her fallen form, a shadow from the skies above.  Landing upon the drought hardened earth, a massive form of scale and bone. "

 

Larisah says, "Wings spread wide blocking out the light, stretching far as if the night had fallen. Silently, searching up into the darkness she sees the burning red eyes of the Drake.  "

 

Larisah says, "Relief floods her that it has heard her cry, until she hears the deep voice of the Drake.  Deep as if from the core of the earth it booms, 'I have come, now you must pay'"

 

Larisah says, "'With my soul I do give, for peace brought to my land.  There is nothing more I ask.' Silence, as she awaits an answer from the darkness up above, she deeply breathes."

 

Larisah says, "'Peace is not something that I seek, I feed on the anger and hatred of man,' it says.  'Though your soul be a tender bounty I must say no to your request, your life is mine instead.'"

 

Larisah says, "Cries of pain ripped from her throat as the Drake takes hold of her, no mercy in its claws.  It lifts her up to gaze at her, opening up its massive jaws to thrust her in, to devour her whole. "

 

Larisah says, "The warrior maiden, long has she fought, her days filled with war and bloodshed. Thinks to herself, "this is my end, how bitter it is in coming that this beast should take it.""

 

Larisah says, "Looking at the Drake, full gaze filled with no emotion at all, she finds peace in the knowing.  No longer will she be at war, but in death, find the peace that she has long sought."

 

Larisah says, "'Ah my angel of the sword, you would so make a tender morsel, but I find that I must leave you be' The Drake's deep voice spoke softly in her ear.  A shift in the air, as winds blast, a flash of light."

 

Larisah says, "There no longer stood the awesome force of the Grey Drake, in its stead a man tall in stature.  Within his arms the warrior maid stood, confused, hurt and angry, for the peace that was not to be."

 

Larisah says, "'It is not wise to call forces of the dark to bring peace to a troubled land, they do not listen,' he sternly said.  'Lucky for you my dear child,' said the man.

 

Larisah says, "Smiling tenderly the handsome man with pale gray eyes gave the maid a kiss on the forehead.  Suddenly the warrior maid, The Angle of the Sword, fainted dead away to the ground."

 

Larisah says, "Then the young man gathered her within his arms, tears in his eyes as he felt her pain. He slowly stepped forward, and as he did the ground began to change, shake and shudder.  "

 

Larisah says, "Rain began to fall upon the parched land, and the twisted trees of the wood grew green once again.  Slowly, he walk forward with each step a change. Peace, came to the land, as those who fought laid down their weapons."

 

Larisah says, "To his home he did take the maid.  He whispered to her words of love, to replace those of hate.  As time did pass, the maid did find her peace within the arms of the fabled Gray Drake."

 

Larisah says, "'I pray to thee, oh gods of light, Thank thee for thy bounty, peace to those who shelter within your arms,' said the maiden quietly as she reached out to bring her lover near."

 

Larisah says, "'Ahhhh, it was never your soul I craved.  But your love, my dear,' said the young  man with a hint of fire in his eyes.  'Forever your love.'"

 

Larisah curtsies.

Larisah says, "See, one with a happy ending."

Larisah says, "one of the few."

Larisah winks.

 

 

 

 

[back to Set List]

Larisah gets a goblet of Dalesian white wine from atop a leaf green homespun cloth.

Larisah lets out a deep sigh of contentment.

Larisah takes a sip of her wine.

Larisah says, "Okay.. a song next."

Larisah says, "This is actually my newest piece."

Larisah says, "which is not saying much, as its been a while since I have performed."

Larisah smiles.

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Al e ti ce.. far away far away

     Al e ti ce  Far way  from home...

     She turned away from her land long ago...long ago..

     She turned away from her home.. long ago.. long ago.."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Al e ti ce  fell in love, fell in love..

     Al e ti ce fell in love, a long time ago..

     She was in love with a mortal man, mortal man...

     She was in love with a mortal man, long ago long ago.."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "They told her that she was wrong, she was wrong..

     They told her that she was wrong.. and told her not to go..."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Al e ti ce followed him, followed him..

     Al e ti ce followed him, where ever he did roam..

     She followed him, and became his wife, his wife

     She followed him and became his wife, long ago long ago"

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Al e ti ce lived happily, happily, happily

     Al e ti ce lived happy for the rest of his live..

     She loved him till he was old, he was old..

     She loved him till he was old, long ago long ago"

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "They told her that she was wrong, she was wrong..

     They told her that she was wrong.. and told her not to go..."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Al e ti ce said goodbye, said goodbye.

     Al e ti ce said goodbye on his burial mound.

     She said goodbye with tears in her eyes..

     She said goodbye, long ago long ago"

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Al e ti ce never did regret, no regret

     Al e ti ce never did regret her love..

     She feels him within her heart, in her heart.

     She feels him within her heart, now and always.."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "They told her that she was wrong, she was wrong

     She proved to them that love was strong, was strong."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "She proved to them that love was strong .... that love was strong..."

 

Larisah curtsies.

Larisah says, "I got lucky with that tune, sometimes inspiration can hit."

Larisah grins.

 

 

 

 

[back to Set List]

Larisah asks, "Did you wish another story?"

Larisah says, "I don't know how long this lasts."

Larisah grins.

Heston says, "Aye! More romance! Or blood."

Larisah grins at Heston.

Larisah says, "I shall give you both."

Larisah nods to Heston.

 

Larisah says, "I will now begin my tale I have named 'The Ship'."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Salt upon my tongue as I taste the wind up from the ocean.

     I glance warily off the stern of the ship watching the sails of another.

     A merchant from some far off distand land, one can only hope.

     Laughter in the background, sounds from the light hearted passengers."

 

Larisah smiles softly.

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Closer and closer it draws,  the captain seemingly not a bit concerned.

     Ship hands going about their work, hoisting sails to take the wind.

     Turning away, I do not see the new flag which has been raised behind us.

     I just hear the quick gasp of the Captain before his face turns blank."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Afraid to look, but knowing I have to, I turn back to gaze upon darkness.

     Rolling clouds of dark grey billowing out behind the coming ship so black.

     A red flag too far to see as yet, waves frantically taunting us with its swiftness.

     Our full wind suddenly stops as if caught by another, and stolen."

 

(Larisah frowns slightly her eyes dark, her fingers tightly clinched.)

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Quiet now the passengers can sense something is wrong and they turn.

     Toward the strong silent captian, looking for assurance nothings wrong.

     He nods to them and calls his men, orders flying to all, rapidly obeyed.

     Advised to return to our rooms, I get a sense of impending doom."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Fear, at first roots me to the spot, until a warm hand clasps mine.

     I lean into my loved one's shoulder as he leads me toward our cabin.

     Tender words of assurance fall from his lips as he kisses my cheek.

     Nothing dear to worry about we are in the best of hands, this Ship."

 

Larisah smiles as she remebers the warm touch of her loved one, so secure in his arms nothing could go wrong.

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Of course he is right I start to think, as we reach our room, too late.

     A shuddering sound of crashing waves as the ship suddenly shifts.

     Falling down hard upon the deck, my breath is knocked out of me.

     Rolling one way and then another as I struggle to lift myself up."

 

Larisah runs her fingers through her hair.

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "What now, I think to myself as my lover helps me up, pulling me close.

     Darkness has fallen over us, clouds thick I cannot see around me.

     Drawing my small dagger, some small protection, some kind of hope.

     Then I hear the screams from up ahead and prepare myself for the worse."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "I will not just stand there as others give up thier life, never been one to hide.

     We move forward slowly to see the pirates of this darkened crashing sea.

     They are pale skinned warriors of some unknown origin, not quite human.

     Not like any I have seen, they are swift and surefooted in this heavy wind."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Suddenly before us one of the attackers springs, his knife a blur in front of me.

     Pulled away, my loved one rushes forward his blade bright red it plunges.

     Deep within the heart of the fierce eyed pirate, death now his only name.

     Relief flows through me as I take the enemy's scimitar, to use as my own."

 

(Larisah grips the hilt of her scim the memory of the other, still fresh.)

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Chanting words of strength and courage, whispers of others doing the same.

     Foward we go into the fray, swinging our swords, jabbing and thrusting.

     All those hunting lessons finally paying off, as we both plunge our blades

     Into the warm blood of the pirate swarm, flashes of lightning surrounding all."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Finally, a rest as the clouds disperse, it seems their mage was overcome.

     All around us quiet descends, the pirate hoard lays on the decks defeated.

     Whimpers of pain coming from the wounded, silence from the dead.

     The captain among the wounded calls for surrender, the pirates nod their heads."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Bound in chains those who are left, they are thrust in their own slave holds.

     The captian's second takes charge of that dark ship which again follows our own.

     Tending wounded, praying for the dead, singing songs of rest and peace.

     We again set sail for the Crossings  more then ever, ready to return home."

 

A tear runs down Larisah's face.

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Salt upon my tongue as I taste the tears falling from my eyes.

     I glance back at that dark silent ship trailing along behind us.

     Sadness comes as I realize that is but one ship of evil that is ended.

     And that there are many more ready to descend upon those of us at sea."

 

(Larisah breaths in deep, her gaze off into the distant, she blinks and smiles softly.)

 

Larisah says, "Ah the sea is a tempting thing, that seems to draw many of us.  Be forwarned my friends and loved ones, there are those devilish pirates at sea..and they might just covet your ship."

 

(Larisah curtsies deeply to the crowd as she smiles warmly at them.)

Larisah asks, "hmm.. want a few sad songs?"

Larisah ducks her head.

Larisah says, "I have some short sad songs."

Larisah grins.

Larisah coughs.

Larisah says, "I would like to sing a song by my aunt Alisonyne.  I heard it, it touched me, and just had to sing it."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Could your heart..., ever be mine,

     Your arms hold me so close to you all through the night.

     Your eyes gaze into mine, saying I should believe you,

     Well I always do, but I don't know why."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Cause you taught me a lesson,the hard way one time.

     Told me you loved me and then changed your mind.

     I never told no one how I hurt down inside.

     Until now, sleep on."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Could your heart, ever be mine,

     My arms hold you so close to me all through the night.

     My heart warned me this time, but I need to believe you so I do.

     Just for tonight."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "But you taught me a lesson,the hard way one time.

     Told me you loved me and then changed your mind.

     I never told no one how I hurt down inside.

     Until now, sleep on. "

 

Larisah slowly sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Sleep On."

 

Larisah quietly sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Sleep On."

    "Knock, knock, at the door of trouble.

     Knock, knock, he is waiting there."

     And pulls her close for more."

    "Knock, knock, at the door of trouble.

     Knock, knock, he is waiting there."

     All at trouble's bidding."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Knock, knock, at the door of trouble.

     Knock, knock, he is waiting there."

    "He grins at her wickedly, turns away

     He walks out the door with a wave

     He whispers to her, 'this is the end'

     And disappears with a gesture."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Knock, knock, at the door of trouble.

     Knock, knock, he is no longer there."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "She weeps, she rages, and she mourns.

     She pulls at her hair in despair, torn.

     She closes the door and locks it from within.

     And keeps herself in darkness."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Knock, knock, at the door of trouble.

     Knock, knock, she is waiting there....."

    "She is gliding on fragile wings...

     Singing in the breeze...

     Following her heart's desire... she flies free...."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "You reach to catch her in the palm of your hands.

     Open them up and see her there gazing at you.

     A tiny pixie with fluttering wings....

     Smiling up at you with a question in her eyes."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Do you wish to put her in a gilded cage?

     Capture her singing voice to listen at your leisure?

     Use her as an ornament to grace your home,

     Or as a trinket to show off to your friends?"

 

Larisah slowly sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "She glides on fragile wings...

     Sings in the breeze...

     Follows her heart's desire... she flies free...."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Tiny fragile wings glistening with the morning dew.

     She flies up and tweaks your nose.

     Tingling laughter echoes in your ears...

     As off she goes to greet the morning's call."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Do you wish you could follow her?

     Fly off into the days beginning...

     Float within the hands of the wind.

     To sing praises and dance among the trees."

 

Larisah longingly sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "She is gliding on fragile wings...

     Singing in the breeze...

     Following her heart's desire... she flies free...."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "We are all flying on fragile wings.

     Following the beat of different songs.

     Some days floating just above ground,

     And others soaring among the clouds."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Unfurl your fragile wings and fly.

     Lift up your voice and sing...

     Feel the wind upon your face and smile.

     As you remember laughter echoing in your ear."

 

Larisah dreamily sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "Glide on your fragile wings...

     Sing heartily in the breeze...

     Follow your heart's desire ..... fly free......"

 

Larisah smiles softly as she hears the faint fluttering of wings and curtseys deeply to the surrounding crowd.

 

Larisah exclaims, "See, I can leave you on a cheerful note!"

     Set me free...let me be.... goodbye........"

 

A young Halfling lad, holding a large mug of ale, leaps in front of the fireplace, lets out a big whoop and bursts into a spontaneous song.

 

   "Old Woolly Tanglefoot, he has no teeth!

    He's a furball on his head that defies all belief!

    But you won't see me singing this when he's around

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "I just want to sit on a rock, in the middle of

     Nowhere.

     Nothing but the sound of emptiness, not even the

     Wind.

     I want it light, then dark and make it

     Cold.

     As long as I can be there silent and

     Alone."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

 

    "I need to ponder, I need to see exactly

     Why?

     We do want to fall in love, Why do we want

     It?

     Are we suckers for pain, gods know we must

     Be.

     Love."

     Fall.

     For some silverd tongue devil with lust in his

     Eyes

     I only hope then that I can fathom

     Truth.

     Is it me he wants, or just my tender

     Caresses."

 

Larisah sings in a soprano voice:

[back to Set List]

Larisah says, "Okay, one more story."

 

Larisah says, "This is called Fallen."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Born of loving parents, adored and cherished,  Josielle was.

     Beautiful golden hair and sea green eyes, her skin soft and fair.

     Childhood of happiness and plenty, she was loved by all.

     Until the day the warriors came."

 

Larisah smiles sadly, a look of pain flashes in her eyes.

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Just a child playing in the woods looking for some berries.

     Smells the smoke drifting through the air, she begins to worry.

     Running home to see if maybe one of the barns has caught fire.

     Sprinkling berries along the way."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Hearing screaming she slows down, cautiously moving forward.

     Peer out from behind the trees, she sees the brutal fighting.

     Shivering with fear, her knees a shaking, she looks for family.

     Weeping, tears fall down her face."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Seeing her mother, guarding her younger brother with a broom.

     Watching her struck down, hard across the neck with a pike.

     Screaming, shrieking, crying out, she runs toward her family.

     Falling, tripping, grabbed roughly."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Thrown down upon the ground, bound with rope about the neck.

     Whimpering, drawn on shaking feet, taken with the rest.

     Small children, young women, younger men, all that is left.

     Josielle's small village lies empty."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Silent marching, but for a few whimpers and running tears.

     Josielle looks forward, staring ahead, one foot in front of the other.

     On and on, seeming to never stop, frightened beyond belief.

     No thoughts of escape from her."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Suddenly a commotion, up ahead sounds of metal upon metal.

     Rescuers in the form of green clad ranger elves, forest warriors.

     Ropes cut, children running everywhere, arrows flying in the air.

     Josielle runs between fighting opponents."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Suddenly a sword blade springs out in fron of her, to fast to stop, SLICE.

     Cut down from hairline to jaw, perfectly centered between her right eye.

     Blood covered face, blinded, no more running, just falling down.

     Quietly she lays there, fallen."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Gentle hands lift her, tenderly tending her wound, soft words of comfort.

     Not a sound, not  a whimper, deeper and deeper she falls within.

     Darkness, dreams, faint whisperings of times past, sudden light springs.

     Awares followed by pain, intense."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Waking up to darkness, bandages all wrapped about her head, in pain.

     Josielle cries out sharply, deeply afraid, of what has befallen her now.

     Voices softly soothing her, bandages removed, she can see clearly.

     Relief flows through her, suddenly."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Forever, Josielle will wear her scars, inside and out, there is no doubt.

     But soon the strangers are friends, the physical pain ceases to be.

     Hope takes hold of her as she learns to be free, rangers as family.

     No longer a child is she."

 

Larisah recites:

 

    "Born of loving parents, adored and cherished, Josielle was.

     Beautiful golden hair and sea green eyes, her skin soft and fair

     The scar that marks forever her pain, will never leave her face.

     A reminder of her youth."

 

Larisah says, "quietly I wish that I could say that we all have a gentle time of growing.  That life was always a happy thing, but tis not always.  There goes hand in hand..happiness with the pain.  It is up to us to go through it finding our way through the light, the dark..and the misty gray."

Daerlynn innocently says, "I don't know what I am doing wrong.  I just try to follow my Momma's advice."

 

Daerlynn begins pouting.

Daerlynn grins at Shenney.

 

Daerlynn innocently says, "Here, let me tell you what she said."

 

(Daerlynn begins to dance a languid gypsy dance, the bells on her hip chain, anklet, bracelet and toes putting forth a shimmering sound in the tempo of the dance.)

 

Shenney beams at Daerlynn!

 

Daerlynn shakes her hips, ringing the bells on her hip-chain.

Shaunn laughs!

(Daerlynn begins to play a captivating rhythm on her bones, a rhythm distinctly that of the gypsies, but the slow, sensuous rhythm of a gypsy woman.)

 

Melindrha's toe bells chime quietly as she thoughtfully taps her foot.

 

Daerlynn shakes her hands, ringing the bells on her bracelet.

 

Daerlynn sings in an alto voice:

 

    "When I was a young girl

     My Momma took me aside

     Every girl needs a man, she said

     How to get one I'll now confide."

Daerlynn winks.

Shenney grins at Daerlynn.

 

Daerlynn sings in an alto voice:

 

    "To capture a good man's love, my dear

     Is not a matter of luck

     The way to a man's heart, I fear

     Is through a man's stomach. "

 

(Daerlynn looks quizzical as she ponders this concept, pausing in the dance.)

 

Mykk laughs!

Mykk covers his mouth with his hand.

A shout of laughter comes from a nearby table.

 

(Daerlynn puts her finger to her chin, pursing her lips, deep in thought.)

 

(Daerlynn shakes her anklet bells in a quick shimmer of sound.)

 

Daerlynn sings in an alto voice:

 

    "Well, of course I'd do what my Momma said

     And went out to capture a man

     I'd use my gypsy wiles at first

     And then to his stomach was my plan!"

 

Daerlynn shakes her hips, ringing the bells on her hip-chain.

Daerlynn sings in an alto voice:

 

    "The first I met was a Moon Mage

     With his flowery words of lore

     I'd try my Momma's advice on him

     Before he got out through the door!"

 

Melindrha smirks.

 

Daerlynn giggles.

Daerlynn asks, "Stomach, hmmm?"

 

Daerlynn sings in an alto voice:

 

    "Well, I took him to my bed that night
