Rodney lunged at Breely, who side-stepped, causing Rodney to lose his balance. When he faltered, Breely caught him by the throat, pinning the other man in front of his with the staff. Rodney froze, knowing the real Breely could kill him right there, with his staff skills.
He waited for a moment, but when he caught sight if Jarin, holding Kain, he lost it. Straining against Breely, he only hurt himself. The older man was too strong, and he was already losing strength. It also put strain on his neck. Before Breely could react, Rodney stomped on his foot, using the steel toe boots he was wearing.
Breely flinched, pain shooting up his leg. Ignoring the pain, Breely moved the staff, which pinched a nerve in Rodney's neck. The other man began to go limp, the effect of a pressure point. The fight was over almost before it began, as Rodney dropped his sword and went limp.
Breely caught him, alarmed at his strange behavior. He should have lasted longer than he did.
As he begain to lower the other man, Breely heard something to the side, which struck immediate terror. Before he could react, a dart flew from nowhere, hitting Rodney in the neck. Breely froze, covering Rodney's body and glancing at Jarin.
He motioned to his side. "Jarin, move very slowly and stay low. There is a cloak in my tunic. Pull it out and put it around both of you. I will worry about Rodney."
Jarin glanced at him. "I can trust you?" After a moment, he pulled the cloak out, wrapping it around himself and Kain. He felt the magic from it immediately. it did not feel malicious.
"Yes." Breely glanced at him again, still shifting his eyes to the side. "Take his away, and go as far as you can. Hide if you see any people or darts...obviously. I think that whoever is in the fortress is using invisibility. It's not the idiots being held by Devin. Now go, and be careful."
Jarin glanced at Rodney. "Is he okay?"
Breely smiled at him, knowing this was the same comassionate Jarin he had loved. "No, he's not."
Jarin smiled back at him. "You be careful, too." With that, he picked Kain up, holding him close to his own body. He moved carefully, finding a passageway that led to the top. They were safe, for now. Once he found the others, he looked grim. "We need to get out of here now. There is danger here, and it is not human. Let's go."
Devin glanced at him. "Where are Rodney and Breely?"
"Bree...ly has Rodney. He is not good," Jarin looked at Devin again. "I think we can trust him. We need to move, and take these idiots with us. There is immense danger here."
Devin sighed. "Okay." He poked the leader in the back. "You will listen to me...okay?"
The leader looked to be on edge, also. "Okay."
Breely carried Rodney to a window, a tear rolling down his cheek. He knew Rodney was gone, but he couldn't carry him forever. This was the man who had tried to save him, when he had been taken down by the wizard. He felt his heart wrenching, as he jumped out the window with him. He would escape and give him a proper burial. He knew the others would escape this evilness. He had the utmost faith in them. He landed, carrying his friend's body out into the trees.
