Let me clear up the situation for you.

I jumped you, hounded you to the point where you retired to the pool of Life. You stayed in there for a elongated period of time.

At that point I retired to Lady Xanthe's temple to meditate over my tactics and how I would plan your demise more efficiently in future attacks.

I was awoken abbruptly by a constant attack of poisons, unfortunately, I was in such deep meditation, that I only awoke as my life had passed.

Now, I could have stayed outside the pool of Life for an hour, and waited for you to venture out, but I do have more than you as an enemy.

As far as me hiding, I have and never will hide from you. In fact, 99% of the time we come in contact you are the one running and hiding. One day your pentacle item will run out of charges, and I will be there to make a bear roast.
