"I also change my vote to Absinthe Tori."  Mith murmured softly, praying she was doing the right thing.

The tide of the voting turned quickly towards Absinthe Tori, all her arguments coming to naught.  It was clear that she was doomed to be exiled, and arrangements were quickly made.  All those left watched anxiously as she walked reluctantly out the gates -- and just as had happened earlier, there was a sudden, impossibly brilliant flash of light, and then the woman they had thought was a friend and fellow mortal was no more.  Absinthe Tori had been a Bean sídhe, but now she could plague the village no longer.

They were that much safer, but they could still not rest completely easily, not yet.

"The taint of the Bean sídhe weakness on our life...that is a true reason to celebrate tonight."
Aiden thanks Beguine and all those who contributed in the feast that night.

The next morning, the village awoke with some hope.  With two of the evil spirits gone, surely they could feel safer at last.  Perhaps once again, no one had been taken during the night.

Alas, the news was far worse than anyone expected.  This morning Imogen was gone, the trees near her little house marked by the same sickly, glowing magics the spirits had left before.  But this time the loss was greater than ever before.  The golden sword and helmet near the spot proved that Imogen had been their Champion, the Niadh Nask, killed while trying to save another.

All at once, hope faded, and again the villagers gathered anxiously.

Beguile stood in shock before the house Imogen had occupied and stared at the markings on the trees.  She crossed herself quickly and superstitiously saying a prayer for the safe journey of Imogen's soul and asking for protection for the village.  She prayed for courage now that the others would realize that in spite of the death of another two of the evil Bean Sidhe had been banished and the innocent far outnumbered the evil.  Surely, if Imogen had be brave enough to face the Bean Sidhe on her own they could do so in combined force.  She stood and waited as the others began to appear.

Eden ponders then vaguely gesticulates in Aiden's direction, wondering if there would be any intervention to saw hir mind as there had been the day before.

Kyrsa paces, still torn.  "I can not understand how any of us could be one of the Bean sidhe.  I have known most of you for years..." she trails off, a worried frown upon her face.  "I am sorry if you are not one of them Eden, but I do not know who else to vote for..."

Having gone back and forth for several days in indecision, she finally places her vote with Eden, and says a silent prayer that she's not voting wrongly.

Her relief at having been correct about Tori was short-lived.  She didn't believe that Eden was in collusion with the Bean sídhe even if the evidence presented was stacked against her... But their numbers were still dwindling and she had no clear answers. Ariadne would not sleep well this night.

RP finishes his invention.

"this will be a fine end to my work as a blacksmith"

RP cleans up and realizes there is a vote to cast. RP's attention to detail and high standards of craftsmanship causes him to get lost in his work. He makes his way out to vote.

"I agree with the rest of the village, I vote Eden, Even if you are innocent I have to believe you knew about marg. And by not telling us that makes you just as evil as the Bean sídhe"

And so Eden's fate was sealed.  Like the others, shi was bundled outside the walls with only what shi could carry, and left to her fate.

Unlike the others, Eden remained Eden, for she was in fact an innocent Keltoi.  The village had exiled one of its own.

Everyone wondered uneasily just how much damage one spirit could do.  It might be enough to destroy the town after all.

The next day dawned chill and damp.  Many were afraid to leave their huts.  But leave them they did, driven to see what other tragedy might have befallen during the night.

And indeed, one hut was again marked with those strange, eerily glowing symbols.  RP7466, an innocent Keltoi, had seen his last sunset.  Who could the evil spirit be?

Beguile sat outside her croft leaning forward as she shelled nuts she had gathered in the wood.  Her early morning foraging had been for food as well as an escape from the village and the new of the death of RP.  He had been a fellow villager and a friend and anything else she might have wished for was now moot. 

Absently Beguile watched the other villagers go about their daily chores.  How could one of them be Bean Sidhe?  Did that person vote to expel Eden from the village and how could she reconcile with herself the fact that she had helped cast out an innocent? 

A decision needed to be made and never one to shirk from duty not matter how distasteful Beguile looked and listened and finally spoke a word.  "Kip!"  It was too easy to pretend to be a wastrel and constantly drunk.  Sighing she went back to her task.

There were so few of them left, their small village having been devistated by the Bean Sidhe to the point that she was afraid to choose among her remaining companions.  Even after so much had happened it still boggled her mind that so many were dead and would no longer greet her every morning.

Her mind followed the same track that Beguile's Mistress had and she shook her head slightly and murmured Kip's name before returning to her hut to prepare a midday meal, more for something to do than from hunger.
