Picture it: A ball so big the whole town is invited. It's hosted in a skyscraper whoes light shines brighter than the moon. All the wealth in the world is there, but this will be the last night any royalty leaves castle grounds.
Princess Lalueta watches the gallivanting as she waits for someone. With all the money glinting on thick fingers, she believes the only thing to worry about is holding on to her earrings and watch. But the woman she was meeting was not looking to give cordial advice on her reading list.
The Kidnapping of a God
“I hadn't considered anything might be amiss until well after we'd left Yorkytempla. Even as they led me from the usual streets I wasn't alarmed. It wasn't until - well really it wasn't until I was already saved that I knew I was in trouble.”
What the three were hoping to accomplish can hardly be left to the imagination. Princess Lalueta was already laid bare in the trunk of the car with her hair clipped and her nose broken. It would only be a matter of time before the trio fled the city and begun to plot their next move.
Marlow had watched too small bubbiles get slipped into the drinks brought to the fair maiden. He risked himself to trail her and her kidnappers for 13HL before watching the Queen-to-be collapse. There's no way of knowing what went through his mind as he watched her being beat and drug across the cities carpet. He called the authorities but never held his phone to his ear. He whispered the street names as they passed and then, when the car was reached, rolled his Tela-ring to the footsteps of the attackers.
The Moment of Action
“There wasn't any time to think. It was clear what needed to be done.”
Marlow's body was found bloodied alongside Princess Lalueta's. In his grasp was a broken bottle painted with blood. After his ring had been discovered and destroyed he had taken to the offencive. Though the details are blurry Marlow was able to delay the group in their departure until authorities were on the horizon. The trio fled- presumably back to the party building as soon as they were aware of police presence. Marlow was left fading in and out of consciousness until well after receiving his QRC health pack.
Many seek to blame Marlow for not alerting the authorities sooner, others believe that having the capability to roll the ring to such a precise place is impossible. They imply that trio must at least have been aware of Marlow if not interfacing with him.
However at the end of the day, Marlow was able to lead rescuers to place of sin. He was highly celebrated by the King and his community. It is often now rumored that the King owes him either a life spared or a hand in marriage.
