It's been years since he returned. A young man of of his mid 20's. He'd chosen not to return till he became that man, and not the slave that escaped that kingdom, the city he looked over from the grassy meadows, hesitant as he stood there wielding the reigns of the horse lingering there, munching at the apple Kade had given it moments ago. He nudged the horse along as he'd finally made his move, walking the well worn dirt path leading him into the hustle and bustle of the city. No one paid no mind to him, a stranger like all the rest that came through. He remembered it like it hadn't been long ago, a trickery since it's been about nine years, and seventeen being the age he escaped. Yet, standing there in the market made the beat of his heart quicken. He cleared his throat, dusted his shoulder as if he could physically remove the feeling, and made his way along. He could not hold that feeling of fear, he was a free man, what should he fear? He had to remind himself the reason he came back, the reason he walked those muddy streets, the reason ice blue eyes set on castle walls. He was on a mission. He bit the corner of his lip as he made his way along, pulling the horse behind him, eyeing the wall that separated the rest of the population from the riches, the wealthy, those of high ranks. He smiled to himself as he made his way to the front gates, there was no need to trying to find a weakness in the wall, or really sneaking in. Kade became a man of trinkets, a traveler, accumulating many little objects, most in which he has no interest in, but uses to barter. This was his plan to get past and within castle walls. Though... Who he searched for... would they still be there? He couldn't help the feeling of dread, the sadness slipping into him like a cold blade seeping painfully into his heart. "Good day sir!" of course he could act, put on that mask and betray his own emotions. He was a man of profit, greed became his way to survive. It didn't take too long to get into the castle, even taking the horse along with him, leaving it's muddy trails behind him. How did he convince them this silliness. Finally the trails had ended in the largest of rooms, there Kade set up his little display, his appearance looking odd there in the center of the large room, a room usually set for balls, and splendors.... but not for something as simple as this little setup of a bartering man and his little trinkets. The man stood there cheerfully, pale blonde hair pulled back into a messy bun as his ice blue eyes stood out from tanned skin. His clothing the oddest and most colorful silks, light and wavy, yet all the same complimented the man where if another of this castle dressed as he had, probably would have been made a fool. The man stood there patiently, tapping his fingers together as he continued to smile. He'd requested for all guests of the castle, any and all souls to attend.
