sinera sighs softly, "It's impossible to know who's done this, but we must choose someone, mustn't we?" She looks down, biting her lip. "I'm sorry, Remiel," she whispers, and turns away.

At least they weren't outright murdering their suspects, like those before them had. Was this more humane? She didn't know. Perhaps others would be able to sleep at night, imagining their hands clean. She would not.

Kyrsa hugs her shawl tightly around her shoulders as she listens to the accusations fly.  She stayed silent for a long time, pondering her neighbors, all of who she thought she knew well.  "Sinera's right.  There is no way to know who it could have been, we can only guess and hope that we are right in the end.  I'm sorry Kip..."

Moirae hesitantly emerged from her hut, her features mostly covered by heavy robes, casting her eyes over the others.  None seemed, well, to be part of the dawning horrors, but someone had to be named.  A guess had to be taken.  "Kyrsa perhaps...?"

The normal peace and calm of the village had been shattered by the death of one of them and signs left behind by the killer.  Going about her normal chores did nothing to relieve the fear and gloom that had descended on her and neither did the talk of who might be responsible for this violation.  Beguile thought hard and tried to decide which of her fellow villagers could do such a thing and covering her face with both hands she whispered Marguerite before returning to her croft to watch the bubbling pot containing a meal she knew she wouldn't eat.

RP returns to the village with a boar, unfortunately it died in the struggle to capture it but it was a fine animal and would be excellent eating.
He looks around and notices the commotion and realizes it voting time again. He is troubled by the idea, no person stands out in his mind as of yet who might be Bean sídhe. He walks over drops the boar and votes.

"since I have no idea who is a Bean sídhe I vote myself. I would rather be cast out into the wilderness than make an uninformed vote that takes the life of an Innocent person."

He picks up the boar, slings it over his shoulder and walks to his hut to begin butchering the animal. He cuts the skinned boar into quarters and brings a hind quarter inside to cut up further as this was the most tender and the part he would keep. the rest would be traded in the village. As he cuts he thinks about who could be Bean sídhe.

There is a knock on his door, he opens it and is informed that he must choose somebody else regardless of his principals.

"Well Kyrsa and Sinera seem anxious to be rid of somebody without having any proof. Granted the village would be better off without the drunkard and the idiot that's no reason to cast them out, so I vote Sinera".

He gives the visitor a nod, shuts the door, and gets back to the task at hand.

Marguerite looked at the individuals who were out making their votes. She had gone off to wash her hands of the blue paint and returned to see the votes. She looked at each of the names and thought about who to choose. It was only the first night and how could anyone know someone else was a bean sidhe? Yet, a decision needed to be made and Marguerite placed her vote on Mith trusting Eden's own sentiment.

Mithlomwen looked at Eden and Marguerite in confusion, not understanding why they would suspect her.  "I am not but a simple villager."  She assured them, and then turned her gaze to the rest of the village and took a moment to ponder the seriousness of there being one if the dreaded Sidhe among them.  Not having any idea who that person might be, she closed her eyes and pointed, her finger pointing at Sinera.

Ariadne listens to the villagers as they voice their fears and trepidations as the day goes on. It was hard to fathom that anyone in their small community could do such a thing. But the evidence was there, plain as the nose on her face. With a sigh she adds her voice to the vote reluctantly.

Warily glancing at the others, Moirae fidgeted a moment longer before: "I change my mind.  Remiel."  Surely it was safer to go with those who'd voted for the same person?  Still, it was just another stab in the dark.

Stumbling out, late and visually hungover as always, Kip leant against the doorjamb and looked at the groups forming.

"Damn Remiel and his caterwauling and stomping around woke me up.  Can't you let an oldtimer sleep when he is unwell?" he grumbled.

Almost too befuddled to realize what was happening, Remiel was cast out of the village with only the clothes on his back and a little food.  The wooden gates would be forever barred to him.  But alas, the hapless man was only an innocent Keltoi, no danger to anyone.  Perhaps tomorrow things would go better, but for now they could only sigh over their failure.

RP, troubled with the events of the last couple days focuses on cutting and salting the meat that he wouldn't use. One of the legs gets set aside for making a ham. He takes the leg, salts it, and puts it in a crock.

"I wonder if Aiden knows of any good smoking woods"

He walks out into the village and looks for Aiden.

sinera sighed, knowing she'd chosen the wrong person. She wondered if the Bane Sidhe would claim another in the night, and wished she knew who to trust; surely there'd be safety in numbers... unless one chose poorly and slept with one of the enemy.

She double-checked her windows and the door-latch, though she doubted they'd stop an attack if she were the chosen victim that night.

The next day dawned grey, with the watery sunshine doing little to pierce the mist and gloom.  The strange marks on Nisien's little hut had long since faded, but now fresh marks had appeared on another.  Moirae had suffered the same fate as the young warrior, and another innocent Keltoi was lost.

"Moirae?" Imogen clenched her hands at her sides. "Who had any reason to raise a hand against her? I can't say for sure, but I think Marguerite had a hand in this!"

Mith said a silent prayer for the lost soul of Moirae, feeling a shudder of dread pass through her.  There was evil among them this much was certain, it was just finding out who.  Agreeing with Imogen, she too felt that Marguerite was to blame for this.

Kip was sitting back against the wall of one of the huts watching everyone hand out blame - the support of the wall was all that was keeping him up in honesty.

His gaze kept on falling upon Absinthe Tori - something about her made him suspicious.

She glanced at Eden and Kyrsa and shook her head, placing her hand over her heart.  "I vow to you both that I am not the evil that has been set upon us.  I am an innocent in this, just as Moirae was, and voting for me will send another innocent to their death."  She explained, beseeching them both to believe her, as she was telling them the truth.

Aiden heard as accusations were fired, his suspicion drawn as Eden turned to defend her lover after someone suspected her of foul play. On that hunch alone he suspected Marguerite himself.
