Chevi Posted May 17, 2020 Share Posted May 17, 2020 April 75 CE (Same day as Next steps) After the talk with Aulus and Horatia, Felix felt the tension of the day's events wash over him like chilling rain. Now that Callista and him had done what immediately needed to be done - told their masters - there was nothing left to do but wait for the fallout, and the next steps to take when Aulus decided on them. The rest of the day went by quietly, under the concerned glances of their fellow slaves. Felix went about his usual tasks. He would have felt worse if he sat around idly. He needed to think, to fully understand how close he had been to dying, or being tortured. How close Callista had been to the same. Felix felt bitter about what happened, alternating between worry, relief, and boiling anger. He hoped things would end well. In this case, "well" would involve that man named Titus disappearing for good. Towards the evening, Felix finished up his tasks, and went to the kitchen for a tray of food. He got enough for Callista; she'd fainted when they got home, and was probably still quite shaken. Felix wanted to check on her before turning in for the night. Walking over to the room she stayed in he stopped in the doorway, calling out. "Callista? Are you awake?" @Laria 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
