Kamion crossed his arms and grinned, listening to Narcano's recounting of the story- aye, it had been an adventuresome, if troublesome time. And if truth be told, had been one of those moments that tested his evaluation of the world and circumstances. Kamion had never been so naive as to believe that anything was all black and white- everything must have its shades of grey, even if they were only slight, but he had always been a firm believer in the strong lines between right and wrong, and the need to do right, no matter the cost. Now, with more than fifty years behind him, he had more experience and perspective by which to judge things, but when Narcano had told him of what he had done, after Kamion had seen him safely out of the city, how he had stormed! Even in his youth he was of a particularly gentle nature and not inclined to temper, but the half-elf's deception had struck such a contrary chord that he could not help himself but rage. Yet even so, he had been unwilling to abandon his friend to Anzaldyn's dogs once the opportunity to turn Narcano in to the city guards had passed, and they had fled together. Kamion laughed aloud at Narcano's comment about his sneaking around, and took the opportunity of his friend's pause to interject. "Yes indeed, at the time I had little use for skulking about in the dark, but I've since found it can come in very handy! Fortunately it's a mostly natural skill, for I don't think I would have put in the time to learn it, given the choice. Tracking, yes, skulking- no. And I had my reward in the end for putting up with your antics, my friend, did I not? A little ball of glittering shine, that I've still got tucked away, mind. Thrift, after all, is one of my many virtues." Kamion chuckled self-deprecatingly. "Neither do I know to whom the jewels belonged, nor at this point do I care to, let it rather remain an entertaining and mysterious anecdote of my past!"
As he had spoken, a prickling had arisen on the back of Kamion's neck, along with the uncanny feeling that he was being watched. It was true that such a feeling could afflict anyone, but to a soldier it was more acute, and he was more likely to know when it was true. The Dúnadan turned his head to glance casually around the gathering, and his gaze locked with that of a woman in a blood-red gown (Morwen). She was staring, yes, but also observing, it seemed, and there was something calculating behind the golden thread of the stare, even interrupted as it was by the passage of other merrymakers across it. Something also about her physicality was wrong- the dress fit her like a glove, and was clearly familiar, but she did not seem to belong in it, nor in the setting in which they found themselves. Curious, but not off-put, Kamion gave her a cheerful smile before turning again to Narcano and Tindumhiell. "Excuse me for a moment, please, I think I see someone that I may know." It was a small lie, and not a harmful one. And in truth, it could be that he had met this girl before, much as he had met Tindumhiell, though he was likely to have remembered it at least a bit. He clapped the half-elf on the shoulder and inclined his head to the maiden before turning and setting off across the floor weaving his way through the milling people, until he had reached the woman (Morwen). "Hello," Kamion said, bowing slightly, again with a smile. "Pardon my rudeness, but I saw you looking so intently in my direction, and wondered if we had met before."
