Arkah took his eyes off Arie, even for a moment, to attend a meeting amongst a few avatars he knew. Once the secret meeting concluded, he found himself dancing and leaping to the music of a local minstrel by the name Ashyeena Marsh who's merry and soothing music caused Arkah to lose himself for a moment in dance. Once the short concert concluded, he realized he was VERY hungry...again...and said his goodbye, sprinting at full speed down the path back tward Dragomir. Along the way he thought about all he had seen and heard. He was also thinking about, now sure that Arie was thier next target, whent he obsidians would strike. "They can only open their dire portals during certain alignments. I wonder if that's the key." He glanced up tward the summer sun, feeling its heat on his face briefly before puttign his eyes back to the road before him. Arkah felt now for sure there was at least a little time left before the attack, hurrying back to Dragomir Mori to eat and rest, and wait for a plan from the others he had just met with in secret.
