For much of Cefin’s young life, the roads to travel from each of the remaining cities were not safe places to be. Bandits, looters, and small militias often sulked the perimeter like hungry sharks, just waiting for a naïve or unfortunately timed passerby to rob, or sometimes something worse. Cefin himself had grown accustomed to traveling across the continent off the beaten path – his occupation allowed for it, and in most cases it benefited him to circle around the periphery to see what was afoot just beyond the average traveler’s line of sight. In doing so, the young Alinari had come across a number of treasures, and recently he had found one he wanted to share with someone else.

It just so happened that the desire coincided well with the occupational hazards of a friend of his. From what Cefin knew and experienced, Svanja sometimes traveled out of Attirac and Caldo entirely to trade some of the weaponry and other items she crafted at her forge. When he could, he often accompanied her at least part of the way regardless of his own plans or her wishes – he was no warrior, but he had the benefit of knowing the current condition of the roads – to ensure at least a somewhat safe crossing for his friend. Most travelers chose to take the path from Attirac that snaked through the eastern side of the watershed, through the Maple Valley, and onward to Miador. In the past several years, Garion’s Marsh was avidly avoided for not only its inherent danger but the apparent increase in disappearances that were happening in those bogs.

During this excursion to Miador, however, Cefin fervently pressed Svanja from within her home in Attirac to take the road through Garion’s Marsh and bypass the Maple Valley. He did not offer any good reason why at first, but as she ventured across the desert toward the imperative fork in the road, the young man did what he could to herd her in the direction he suggested. “The Maple Valley’s been dangerous these days.” he said, his voice too loud and too theatrical to not be suspicious. “Just the other day I was attacked, and I’m sure my assailant is still in there somewhere!” Cefin had never really been great at the art of deception, but he was doing his damnedest to be convincing.

Over time Ceffin had become a frequent travel companion when she left home to trade elsewhere. Sometimes the invitation was extended for sheer want of company, others for his knowledge of the roads and their conditions. This time, however, it was unsolicited.

That in and of itself wasn't unusual, either, and Svanja usually humored his company without complaint regardless knowing they would eventually part ways and she would have the solitude she sought. Something about this excursion was different, though. Ceffin was strangely insistent in a change of track as they traveled, though where he usually had some readily applied reason this time that wasn't the case.

Svanja side eyed her friend as he finally accounted for that much. Had they not known one another since childhood, he might have had some chance at deception. As it were, he was a terrible liar and the pitch of his tone gave him away as surely as if the fabled little black forehead marks her mother had told them of as little ones actually did exist. Svanja very nearly brushed him aside by remarking that if he had managed to thwart said assailant, then she would be just fine.

In the end, though, curiosity won out and Svanja shook her head in defeat, "Fine, fine," she relented, "we'll go your way this time. Through the Marsh it is."

Throughout his childhood, Cefin had learned a number of lessons in persistence when it came to winning out over a very stubborn person. Conan was probably the best practice dummy there ever was to master the art of argumentativeness, and while the younger Alinari still much preferred to be cooperative and pleasant, sometimes the obstinate refusal to give in came in handy. At least around him, Svanja was usually amiable enough, but he was never quite sure when she’d get it into her own head to be difficult and continue on her merry way.

When she did concede, Cefin beamed in victory, despite knowing full well that it had nothing to do with his skills of deception. He knew well enough how terrible he was at lying, but Svanja knew him far too well to let it slip under the radar either. “You won’t regret it.” he promised earnestly and nearly skipped a few steps beside her in delight. Not only was he fairly certain Svanja was going to like the detour, but he himself had something to gain from it as well.

It was a few more miles before they actually reached the fork in the road that led to the Marsh, and when they started venturing down that path, Cefin did decide to be a bit more earnest. “The roads through here are still dangerous and flooded in a lot of locations. We won’t have to worry about bandits, but the Marsh itself doesn’t seem to like people passing through it anymore.” The beginnings of Garion’s Marsh rose from the earth like a solid wall of emerald green, mythic and unnatural in its appearance. Nowadays, it seemed that the sun was swallowed as soon as it hit the first branches it fell upon. Not letting the danger of the road ahead dampen his mood, Cefin lifted a heavy twisted group of vines from the path up over Svanja’s head so she could enter unhindered.

“I’m taking your word on it,” Svanja answered, flashing a half smile at her companion as she allowed him to take a lead on their path from there. She knew Cefin was full of shit at least so far as his reason for changing routes, but he must have had something up his sleeve to make it worthwhile. There were plenty of men who might have raised immediate flags with such insistence – his brother among them – but the possibility of a dangerous deceit never crossed Svanja’s mind with Cefin. <p>
As the marshes came into view and he spoke again Svanja turned her gaze, “We ran amok in the marshes for years as kids,” she smiled, “I think we’ll be able to manage now.”

Svanja had confidence in their venturing through Garion's Marsh, to which Cefin responded with a quiet, introspective smile of his own. He had never considered whether she, or hardly anyone else doe that matter, believed in the falling of the gods, but he himself had seen some suspicious activity that suggested the rumors might be true. Just in case Garion or other deities were lurking about in the boys they had just entered, Cefin knew to steer them as close to the perimeter as possible to reach the small clearing he hoped to lead her to.

Immediately, the sun was almost swallowed in an emerald, ethereal glow. Sound hardly carried here due to the thickness of the foliage. The younger Alinari was careful to stay close to his companion, and when a smaller path deviated from the more obvious trail, he chose to take that one instead. He traveled that way in silence for a little while, but eventually his guilt in attempting to deceive Svanja got the best of him all on his own. “Okay, I admit it. I actually brought you here for a reason.” He said and eyed her both slyly and apologetically at the same time, the combination forming a puppy-like expression. “I actually have a surprise for you.” As of yet, there were no clues as to what that surprise was, but a distant whispering only Cefin could hear informed him that they were starting to get close.
