On top of the roof...

Who: Priestess of Metalia!Mercury ([personal profile] waterfell) and Rogue!Kanda ([personal profile] decaying)
What: reconciliation
When: after the Adventure theme plot is over
Where: an inn at a small village far north

Summary: Now that the truth is revealed and Metalia is defeated, the rogue and priestess meet again.
It was over. The cold night stirred with a chill breeze that felt pleasant to the priestess of Metalia. In a small village like this one, every little word and gesture of a visitor or traveler was interesting and repeated a thousand times, so she'd finally sought sanctuary on the roof of the inn, where not many would intrude. No one would expect to find anyone here.

From this vantage, she could look up to the stars and let their vastness make her thoughts seem small; or she could look down across the flat rooftops of the rest of the village, where trails of smoke marked some late dinners and candles already lit some of the windows. Both gave way to empty contemplation to keep her thoughts from taking less pleasant directions.

She had lost a lot of certainty on this journey. It was hard to shut out the memories of things she still didn't understand. And now, with Metalia behind her, she was not sure what lay ahead.
