Koldar's mind works hard when Terra presses him further on the one topic he does not want to pursue. He looks away from her as if ignoring her would change anything. But it wouldn't and he knows that. But he is lost between the things he should tell and the things he must not tell. What can he tell? More precisely can he really tell and break bounds older than those with his companions?

Grim he looks back into Terra's eyes. His voice angry, not really because of her rightful insitance but by his inability to honour his responsibility towards a wounded comrade and his given word.

"Is it enough what you already know? They are after the Heart and I honestly don't know why. They think we are causing trouble and for this alone they will do everything to stop us. Do you really need to know more than that they will hunt us down, now as they seem to think that we are the bad guys who stole the Heart and plan something terrible with it? I wouldn't know why three of them would be after me and if Capher is who he said he was I don't see a reason why they'd be after us. That's all I have to say about them except that this temple doors wouldn't hold them off, not because they're so evil but because this temple is one of their many sanctuaries in times of need."

He hastily waves around him

"And now I broke enough oaths for one day so don't ask me no more!"

One can clearly see as Koldar runs out of breathe at the end of his speech. Frustrated he again turns away from Terra and he walks a few steps trying to regain a clear mind about what he's just done. Under his breathe he mutters

"After years they're suddenly swarming around... first looking after me... then trying to kill me..."

Suddenly Koldar stops as a new thought enters his mind. He turns around to the others again in a rush, a surprised face has completely replaced his anger. He points at Terra as if she just unraveled a riddle of utermost importance.

"Terra, you said something about the knight at the gate,... if he's in league with the others... and I later followed these two others because I wanted to find out why they're looking for me. In fact I at first thought one of them was the one at the gate!"

Koldar gestures triumphing.

"When there are three and they're in league, where was the first knight? He was not with them when I overheard their conversation, they didn't mention another companion nor did they behave as if they were expecting someone else. You said it yourself, they behaved irrational at asked about the heart, the knight at the gate however was just looking for me."

Then Koldar's face sobers.

"Of course this doesn't prove the first knight is not in league with them but what a coincidence would it be to have three black knights in the same town without knowing about each other when they are. We need to find the first knight to shed light on this. He currently doesn't fit in. - And if I'm wrong an easy death is preferable anyway."

he adds scratching his head.

Terra watches as he looks away, as if ignoring her and her words. Koldar then looked back to her eyes, his face grim and his voice angry, though she could see the anger was not directed at her. By the end of the speech Koldar was clearly out of breath and frustrated, as he turned and took a few steps away, muttering something to himself.

Suddenly he turns back with a surprised look on his face as he began thinking what Terra had been trying to muddle through in her own mind. Terra listens intently to what he had to say, and let it fill the gaps in her train of though as a plan began to form in her head, though thinking still felt a little awkward.

"Koldar, I have a plan.

You said it is not safe for me to stay here, and I will have to agree, these people are healers, not warriors. If I were attacked by one of the knights here I would be on my own, and I am in no condition to fight. We will need to find some place where I can recover more fully.

Once I am there, Koldar, you would need to try and find the first knight we encountered. Find out what that knight was after, and if he can help us, or tell us any more about what is going on.

Hajarian, Avour, you will need to make preparations to leave. You should start as soon as possible but do not prepare in haste, you should stay in the inn for at least the night and make it seem like a simple stop over on a longer journey. We will meet up in Milkengrad.

Is this reasonable?"

Terra looked to each to see if they had followed her thought. It seemed sound reasoning to her, but she could not be sure if it was only an illusion from her head injury.

Koldar senses that Terra still has to fight to keep concentrated but her proposal sounds reasonable enough.
"I agree but are you sure you'll be capable to catch up with us? Also, should we leave the town together to divert the knights from Hajarian and Avour? - When the priest of Nehtor spoke true I might know a good hiding place for you where you should be safe for some time."

Terra looks to Koldar concidering her responce.

"I think it is best that we go together. They now know us, and even when I am well enough to travel, I will not be in best form to be fighting should I encounter them. I can have time to recover while you search for the first knight we encounted, I do not think he went far."
