Elraralia stared into the falls, and let cascading water and moment carry her away for a moment. Slowly, and almost dreamily, she looked up towards the sky, and realized how dark it had become, and thus how late.  With a shake of her head, she brought herself back down to earth, but a bit more reluctantly then usual.

"It's getting late.." she said finally "People will start wondering where we have gone off to if we don't head back soon.." Not to mention there are still things to be done before the night is out... she thought to herself grimly. Looking back at Morcaanan though, she felt her stomach clench oddly, and she realized that she really had no desire to go back.

What is going on with me?  I'm acting like some young Iteh trainee..

He glanced up when she spoke, and nodded reluctantly in agreement.

"Yes, I suppose your right" he replied. He stood and offered her a hand to help her to her feet; his head whirled at her touch when she accepted it, and it took him a moment to think clearly.

He nodded mutely towards where he had left their carriage and they began to make their return to it. "Should I take you to your residence? Or would you prefer to go back to the ball?"

Taking his hand, Elraralia stood up, her stomach fluttering more then she had ever experianced in her life.  Sighing, she looked over at the carriage.

"The ball, probably, knowing the people I am leading, they won't be able to find their way back to where we are staying.  And what about you?  Do you have to go back to guard duty, or whatever it is that you were doing?" she asked him as they slowly walked away from the cascading water.

"Perhaps" he said. "But, I am in no hurry to get back." His heart pounded rapidly, sounding almost as loud as the falling water behind them.

He helped her into the carriage and then junped up beside her. He clicked to the horse and they jolted away.

Should he check on the Nehtorian Temple? He decided to guide the carriage in that direction, at least. One never knew. And, well, the sooner they got back to the ball, the sooner he might never see Elra again...

Elraralia leaned back against Morcaanan, and looked out the window at the retreating water falls.

"They are beautiful, aren't they.  The falls I mean.  It makes me almost not want to leave them..." she sighed, and looking up at the man next to her, she smiled slightly "I can see why you live here."

He looked into her eyes as she said "I can see why you live here." He could only nod mutely, entranced by the gaze of her eyes, the smell of her hair and the feeling of her body leaning against him.
He swallowed hard and looked ahead again, trying to control the raging emotion in his chest; he slowly slipped an arm around her shoulders, part of his mind wondering if that was wise, and the other part not really caring.

They drove on in silence for some time, the sound of the falls receding to a dim roar as they passed through the streets of the city. Morcaanan saw the temple not very far ahead, and gently guided the horses in that direction.
When they drew level with the building he pulled away from Elra and stepped out of the carriage.
"I'll be back shortly" he promised, heading swiftly for the door; the sooner he was done here, the better.

As he put his arm around her shoulder, Elraralia shifted so she was leaning against him.  As they neared the temple though, reality hit her like a ton of bricks, shattering any sense of euphoria that had earlier posessed her.  
Luca...Phiona...she was with the enemy...

As Morcaanan headed for the door of the temple, it was suddenly obviouse as to what she needed to do.  Here she was, falling for the enemy, as her friends were potentially being killed...or worse.

"I'm coming too" she said, jumping out of the carriage "That half-elf, I need to find out how it got through the Autarian Woods undetected."
