Ryu appeared just outside the city. He kept a blank face and walked with confidence. He saw a horse of the conor of his yes and looked. It was Cascata. He ran as fast as he could in her direction, "CASCATA!"

Cascata eyed him a moment, then shrugged and nodded, holding out her arm towards him like a lady. "If you don't mind, then, I'd like to claim you as an escort for me as well as an ambassador for Thelon. It would help both our cases to show our alliance."

Cascata just grinned at some amused thought in her head but was wise enough not to speak it. The young Mind forgets we can't all teleport and zip around as he can. An army is bound to be slower than two people on foot as well. With her head held high, Cascata approached the realm of Jokull. Two guards at the gates were swift to block her way.
"I am Mother Cascata, of the Waves," she announced calmly. "I need to speak with Jokull - it's an emergency." The guards glanced at each other and a hint of a smirk played on their faces.
"Very well," one agrees. "But only you, Mother Cascata. The Mind type can stay here."
Ryu gave the guards an odd look, "I am here to escort Cascata upon request of master Thelan!" He kept a firm ground, and made a series look on his face. Though if the guards would not change their minds, he'd just teleaport straight to Jokull.

"I would like to keep Ryu with me," added Cascata. With disgruntled muttering, the guards stepped aside. Nodding her head politely, Cascata walked her way up towards Jokull's personal residence. As if summoned, and perhaps he was, Jokull was waiting for them at his doors.
"Welcome, Mother Cascata," he said politely, taking the woman's hand and kissing the back of it cordially. Frowning at Ryu, as though not expecting his presence, he asked, "And you are...?"
Ryu followed Cascata and smiled when he saw Jokull, thinking it best to play nice. Though he guess not many people would know him, being a mind master of a hidden place very few would ever see. He offer a hand to Jokull, "I'm Ryu, here on behalf of Master Thelan."
Ryu kept his friendly face, though acted cool when Jokull acted coldly. He knew from studying different elemental traits that it was just apart of of who Jokull was. He looked Jokull in the eyes, "Master Theland is very busy with other matters at the moment. So he sent me as trusted escort for Cascata."

"If he's too busy to talk to me personally, I want nothing to do with him," Jokull remarks bluntly and harshly. "However, since you are escorting Cascata, I will let you stay." Abruptly turning towards Cascata, he says quickly, "And what have you come to visit me about, dear Cousin?"
"I think you should hear this young man out," Cascata replies mildly. "We're here for pretty much the same reason."
Looking irritated, Jokull nods to Ryu, "Speak then."
Ryu suppressed the urge to tell Jokull off. His cold and distance attitude would not do well in this war, though they needed the fire power. He took a step forward, his expression changing to a rather serious one. "I'm sure you've herd by now, but Talen'sul has been attack by the clears. The minds think it's time to act, and attack the clears before they enslave us all. The water elementals have already joined our cause, we wish to know if you will join us also. The future of your people will depend on this."

Jokull looks to Cascata questioningly for verification, and she nods. The man rubs his chin, appearing to be deep in thought.
"Very well, if the Water types are throwing their bid in, we might as well help too," he finally says. "But not until I've worked out some of the political aspects with lady Cascata. I don't wish to have anything to do with the Minds, but the Water types are our allies and so any reinforcements we give, will be to help THEM not you. Therefore, I'd like Mother Cascata to stay with me for a couple days. Knowing her, she's already handed the matter of the war off to more capable hands and it won't hurt anyone if she does stay."
"You know me too well, Cousin," Cascata laughs. Despite Jokull's attitude, she seems quite calm and comfortable around the man. "And knowing you, Jokull, you'll be trying to drive one hard bargain. Ryu, this may take a while. Why don't you go visit the other Elementals you intended on meeting and then come back By then, we should be ready."
Ryu nods to Cascata and Jokull, "I'll visit the others, as well as master Theland. Though I should warn the two of you that this war will not be an easy one, and ALL the elementals will have to work together, with full co-operation."
