Near a small stone building, which might be recognized as a shrine of Quail, a humanoid figure hovers in the dark. It appears to be waiting for something.

The puzzle's tough, I'll admit, but in time we'll find where everything fits.

(Quail is the goddess/deity of messengers, right?)

Autumn stood by Quail's shrine, and then looked up. "Erm, Quail, are you there?"

(yup)
Quail blinked, then poked her head out the door. "Oh, hey Autumn. What's up?"
She then noticed the figure and promptly pulled her head back in.

"Um, who or what is that shadow?" Autumn asked, confused.

Quail was very, very oddly quiet.

Meanwhile, the figure turned at the sound of speaking.

Autumn panicked when she didn't get a response. Why is she so quiet?

The figure approached, revealing a 30-something woman in a dark cloak. Beads and feathers were woven into her black hair. "Hello."

Yup, it's her. It is definitely her.

"Is White Quail in there?"

Spirit, magically having been there the entire time, smiled at the woman. "I'll go check." She knocked on the door of the shrine. "Someone wants to see you, not sure if you want to see them."

I suppose it might not be her... no. It sounds like her. "Absolutely don't want to see her!"

The woman smiled faintly, pulling her hood low over her head. "Come out!"

"I'll be going soon!"

"Quail isn't available for seeing visitors right now. She's busy." Spirit said, wondering why Quail was so adamant. She whispered to Quail, "What's wrong? Why don't you want to see her?"

Autumn looked at the sky. What does she want, and what is Quail hiding from?

Quail remained silent, wondering when it would be safe to leave.

The woman huffed, reaching into the folds of her cloak to feel at... something. "You can't hide forever!"

Continued silence.

The woman turned in defeat, facing Spirit. She then offered a hand in an effort to be polite. With a scowl on her face, she introduced herself. "My name is Black Raven."

Quail maintained her frozen silent position.

"Oh. Let's just say we have some... history... together." Black Raven's face remained hidden by her hood.

Autumn was slightly annoyed that Black Raven was ignoring her, but her curiosity kept her from showing it. "What do you mean?"

BR huffed. "We grew up together. Deemed opposites, and this forced friends. Only for her to steal my glory!" She looks incredibly angry, then caught herself. It was obvious she wanted to say more, yes she stopped herself.

Autumn backed off, fearing any potential rage from Black Raven. "Then why is she afraid of you?"

BR fell into an odd silence as well.

"I didn't mean to, Raven. I didn't mean anything."

"Of course you didn't. You couldn't even do anything." Her grip on the objectin hercloak tightened, her arms shifting quite obviously.

What ever the reason, they both don't want to talk to each other, yet there is clearly an unspoken argument here. Autumn stayed quiet as she waited for any response from Quail. When it was clear there was none, she spoke up, her curiosity making her forget that this really wasn't much of her problem. "Why don't you guys just talk this conflict out?"

"When someone does everything that you were supposed to do but worse and doesn't even try, but still since they did it first you aren't allowed to, and so you get them away and clear room for yourself. BECAUSE YOU NEED THEM TO LEAVE. And then even when they're gone they still do what YOU were going to do! YOU DON'T JUST TALK THAT OUT!" She began vibrating, her arm moving as she began pulling at whatever was in her cloak.

"Maybe you can tell us what happened?" Spirit suggested tentatively. "Perhaps we can work out some kind of peace."

BR pulled strongly at whatever she had, revealing a throwing knife in her hand. "I'll be taking my leave."

Autumn watched Black Raven go, waiting until she was out of earshot. "Quail? What was that? What's the history behind you guys?"

Quail hesitantly came out. "We grew up together. Then got into a fight. And I left and..." She broke off, turning to stare uneasily at a figure in the sky

A raven with beads woven into its wings and tail sat on the roof, then turned and flew away.

"And then... I made a mistake. I figured she had forgotten about me, but that was wishful thinking."

Autumn nodded, understanding what Quail felt. Mistakes are such small things. But usually, it's the small things that cause hatred like this. She sighed.

"Wishful thinking. Such a harmful thing it can be."
