PostSubject: medieval fantasy (wargh X eldar)   Fri Mar 04, 2011 1:19 pm

the leaves rustled as a arrow shot through the canopy headed straight for the beast making its way at a slow lope through the forests its nose up trying to catch a sent. The heavy shaft embedded its self causing the dog to yelp loudly, a little father back than had been Seth’s intention, but he couldn’t win them all he thought. Leaping out of the tree he hit the floor at a run covering the distance to the hound quickly, the beast whimpered and growled snapping at Seth even while it was speared to the ground by Seth’s arrow. Standing over it at a height of 5’6 Seth had a leaf bladed knife in one hand the other holding lightly to his bow. Laying the bow down Seth moved into the dogs range kicking it in the head as the dog tried to bite at him placing his booted foot over the dogs snout he plunged the knife into the dog this time hitting his intended mark.

More rustling and now voice’s came from behind him. Turning Seth picked his bow up. It looked to be a simple long bow with carvings all over it the kind of thing you would find mounted over a fire place maybe but the markings on the bow were really runes, magic symbols that enchanted the bow although what the enchantments where Seth couldn’t say. The rustling closer now Seth sprinted through the forest careful not to make a sound.

Seth’s form blended in with the forests his clothes looked to be a motley assortment of green and browns his cloak like it had been patched over dozens of times in the same colors, camouflage at its finest both cloak and clothes were finely made and hardy. Seth himself had brown hair and green eyes at his belt he had a quiver full of arrows sitting at the small of his back a short sword on his left hip and his leaf bladed knife strapped further down his left leg.

sprinting through the forest was almost as dangerous as if he had stayed behind and fought the group off, one false step in either situation and he was as good as dead, Seth moved quickly crossing streams as often as he could it was a few hours later and the sun was beginning to fade by the time Seth felt safe, but still he ran the army was three days away from him waiting on the edge of enemy territory and they were waiting for his report it didn't bode well that already he had found heavy resistance, it should have taken longer for the enemy to gather anything approaching a sizable force.

A slip and Seth feel clenching his teeth to hold back the scream as he felt his ankle twist. Seth laid there for a moment moving his ankle this way and that it wasn't a bad sprain but it would still slow him considerably. reaching into a pocket sown into the inside of his shirt he took out a map and looked it over quickly, a small village not even half an hour from him. putting the map away he stood trying to keep as much weight as possible off his sprained ankle and started to hobble towards the village.

A lone figure was stalking through the woods on silent feet. No sound was to be heard except for the natural ones emanating from the forest and its natural inhabitants. The slender built of the figure was hinting towards the woman who was hidden beneath the dark green cloak, neatly camouflaged into her surroundings as she slowly crept closer to the man she had her eyes on, her target. The female was clad in leather clothes that let her free for movement but were tight in all the right places to emphasise her body structure. Her delicate features, which only barely revealed that she was partially elven, were set in a grim look of determination, a few fringes of red hair scarcely visible beneath the hood of her cloak which she had pulled far deeply into her face. In addition to the array of daggers she was carrying, some visible, some not, she had a quiver and a bow strapped to her back towards which her hands were now slowly moving up without making a sound. Within a heartbeat, she had picked an arrow and nocked it in place, letting it hover over the man, wondering whether she should already go in for the kill or wait and see what he was really up to, but then, she decided that the man would give her better options and more information if she kept him alive for a little longer. But then, all of a sudden, the half-elf had a bad feeling creeping down her spine and noise erupted from many sides around her.

Quickly putting the arrow back in place, she picked up her feet and swiftly ran away from where she had been standing, not a second too soon as suddenly an arrow slammed into a tree at exactly the height her throat would have been. What the hell is going on here? Thoughts were circling her mind but she couldn’t put her finger on what it was exactly that was happening here. Looking back towards the man she had been observing, she realised that he too was aware of people milling in their surroundings and was now making a run for it. Why were other people hunting him if she had been set on his trail? And why the hell were they targeting her? Cursing, she disappeared into the shadows of the undergrowth but kept close to the hunter, wanting to see who this was, if he seemingly was important enough to not only set an assassin on his trail but an entire army as well, or so it seemed.

Siofra followed the man for a few hours, keeping her distance and never giving away her position, having trained at this sort of thing all her life. But apparently so had he. He moved silently and almost invisibly through the forest, barely leaving a trace. Still, she kept wondering at what had happened earlier but every time she thought about it, she dismissed it again, not wanting to jump to conclusions before she had more information. It was safe to say however that for now, she did not understand this.

When he suddenly slipped and his face contorted with pain, Siofra stopped. In silent contemplation, she observed him, wondering whether she should help him or not. If he was the enemy, then she really shouldn’t, but somehow she got the feeling that he wasn’t and that she was on the wrong track or been lead on a false trail on purpose. It wouldn’t have been the first time either. Some of her so-called employers always thought they were more cunning than the ones they hired, which rarely ever was the case however. While she was still weighing her options, the man was already pulling out a map from somewhere in his clothing and relatively soon began hobbling off into the direction of the nearest village. Siofra frowned a little at his determination but couldn’t deny that she was impressed by it. He had stamina, that much she could admit. Thus, she followed him for a little bit longer, before she finally decided to reveal herself. Speeding around his limping, slow path, she let herself appear in front of him, seemingly casually leaning against a tree as he came into sight.

he had felt eyes on him the entire time, it was part of the reason he had pushed so hard part of the reason he had slipped up. the moment the girl appeared ahead of him he spread his weight evenly on his feet his at the same time his hand reached down behind him drawing out an arrow and knocking it on the bow. bringing to bow up and to half draw he called "Kings scout state your business" a confused look crossed his face before he added "king Theodore" Theodore and Fredrick had long been hostile towards each other but this was the first time one of them had a massed an army with plans to invade the other.

Siofra chuckled at the man’s response to her appearance, actually amused by it. Even if her eyes did not leave his face, she was very aware of the arrow and the half-drawn bow that would most likely be shot without a second thought if she didn’t pay attention to what she was doing. But she didn’t care, she quite liked playing with the fire from time to time and her own skills with the bow were something to be reckoned with. There was no need to proof this to him right away however. Slowly, she took a step away from the tree trunk she had been hugging, moving closer to him, paying attention however not to move too close – not that it would change anything if he decided to attack. “My business is my own,” she replied sweetly but the indifference in her tone still recognisable, another grin flashing across her face as he added the king’s name. She couldn’t care less which king it was she was working for, all she wanted to find out was why he was here, what he was doing and why there were people after him. “I am not interested in yours either,” she continued, slowly stalking around him, her piercing green eyes still glued to his face. “But do tell me. Why is it that you are hunted like a lowly animal?”

"no animal worth hunting is lowly" he shook his head "why do you think dont you pay attention to the boarders." he gave a half smile putting a little more tension on the bow string as a warning for her to stop moving "Fredrick's boys have a disliking for Theodore's" he shrugged as well as he could without disrupting the bow "simple as that really" he never took his eyes off her his ankle was paining him he just wanted to get to the village find some dry hay in a barn and rest he could attend to his ankle in the morning if he needed to. Seth gave serious consideration to just shooting her now and moving on but some how such cold blooded actions seemed beyond him.

The more he spoke, the more she began respecting him. His answers weren’t stupid ones and he had consideration for nature, which always seemed important to an elf, even if they were only half-breeds. Again, a low chuckle sounded from the female’s throat as she considered his words. “Their business is their own, as much as their childish games,” she grunted, finally stopping in her pacing as she realised he was starting to grow serious about the arrow nocked to his bow. “What?” she suddenly asked lightly as she saw the look with which he observed her, “why don’t you just shoot me?” But she knew he wouldn’t do that, he wasn’t the type, or hadn’t given off the vibe of being one for as long as she had observed and followed him now. Suddenly, she remembered his ankle and wondered whether she should risk a glance towards it, as she didn’t want to give him the impression she was not paying attention to his actions anymore. Then again, hadn’t she been playing with him since she bumped into him? Sighing, she slowly moved her hands up to her hood to take it off, revealing her full wavy hair and the black velvet band that ran across her forehead. Showing her face for her, was something of a sign of good intentions, thus, she hoped he would understand it as such. “Put away that silly arrow and sit down. Your ankle needs taking care of before it swells to the size of a chicken,” she told him with an almost scolding tone.

Seth was a little shocked at seeing the girls face he had known from her voice and figure that clearly she was a woman but she looked so young and the elfish tinge to her face was startling. That combined with the tone of her voice saw him lowering his bow before he had even caught on. Startled at his actions he brought the bow up to full draw aiming the arrow straight at her chest but his eyes betrayed the fact that he wasn’t going to shoot and before long the bow dropped again. Unknocking the arrow he put it away and lent the bow still strung against a tree before sitting where she had directed. at the same time as he sat though he drew the leaf bladed dagger he wore on his thigh and held It in a reverse grip incase he had need to defend himself trust only went so far before it became stupidity.

Siofra noticed his reaction to her lowering her hood and she was a little surprised at it, not having had her face make anyone put their weapons down so far, rather the opposite due to the elven features that were visible, if only slightly. It slightly unsettled her and she wondered what this meant, not wanting this to turn into the opposite after all, which it almost seemed to be as he quickly readied his bow again and this time full out pointed it at her, ready to shoot, unlike he had so far. It was probably just a reaction to spite his own instincts, but it nevertheless made her frown and she pulled her eyes together in a cold glance, as if daring him once more to shoot her. The snippy comment was already on her lips, the corners already winding their way into a crooked smile, when she saw the look in his eyes and immediately knew that he nevertheless would not shoot, and seemingly so did he, as he soon lowered his bow again and put away the arrow.

Once he sat down, she knelt down on the ground, trying to keep an uncompromising position so she wouldn't be too exposed to an attack she could not deflect in one way or another. She was fairly certain he had another weapon at the ready somewhere, though she deliberately did not pay attention to it. Today was not a day she cared much about consequences of her actions, even though usually she was fairly calculating on most things she did. Siofra lightly put her hands around his ankle to see what was causing the problem and immediately felt the swelling was on its way to growing into huge proportions, not to mention the heat that was already radiating from it after the strain he had put on it. However, it was not something she couldn't fix easily, it would take time, granted, and he might not be able to properly use his foot for a while, or shouldn't at least, but it could be fixed with a little twisting to put the bone back in place. "Take off your shoe while I go find some useful herbs for this," she said, getting back on to her feet. "Don't even think about putting any more weight on that foot," she grunted before she disappeared into the trees again.

Shaking his head Seth stabbed his knife into the earth so he could use both hands to work his shoe off. his ankle was throbbing his heart was still thumping from shock and exertion. his face was set in a mask of calm he refused to show the pain he was in even if no one was here to see anymore. working off his shoe he threw it aside, made from soft leather they were quite, gave him some protection from the ground while still being able to feel what he was climbing over.

taking up the knife again he held it in his lap closing his eyes he waited listening for anything that might be out of place his ankle throbbing in time with his heart beat.

As soon as the shadows of the trees had swallowed her up, the half-elf put up her hood again to blend in with her surroundings. It wouldn’t be a hard or even a long task to find a few herbs she could grind into a sort of paste which she could rub over the ankle, but she preferred to be cautious about it nevertheless. Picking up the various plants, she needed, she silently weaved her way through the undergrowth, keeping her eyes open for any possible attackers. Siofra wasn’t quite sure what had happened to the people that had attacked them earlier in the day but they had stopped tracking them hours ago already, or at least so it seemed.

Shortly after having left the man sitting on the tree trunk, she already returned to the spot, pulling off her hood again as she stepped out from behind a tree before she made her way towards him. He had indeed followed the instruction and taken off his footwear, which now lay casually on the ground. Her eyes took in his closed eyes and the knife on his lap, wondering what he was playing at. The paste was quickly made, it not being the most difficult thing to do to mash a few leaves and plants together, which she then rubbed over the ankle, leaving the greens themselves on there too. “It should soothe the swelling and help with the pain, but that was about all that could be done for now,” she said, while working but never looking up at him. Taking out one of the bigger leaves she had picked up on her way back, she smoothed it over the paste and ankle. “Now try to get your shoe back on without moving that leaf.” With that she got up again, taking a few steps back from him, still trying to assess his behaviour and him in general. There were a few things about him she couldn’t quite figure out, but she guessed that it was a good thing, for him at least.

as she came back his eyes opened and he looked over at her frowning he watched her work the knife at the ready the whole time, he was on edge but that was to be expected with the day he had been through. his eyes stayed riveted to the girl 'why was she helping?', 'where had she come from?' "why are you here?"

He shook his head "easy" he said sarcastically again stabbing the knife into the earth keeping it in a easy to reach place, leaning over he started to carefully work the shoe on. His ankle gave him some trouble but he kept the mask of calm on his face, "am i aloud to stand now? I was hoping to make it to the village a little after dark." he had skipped the village on his way in now he felt he should check it out he might learn more a bout Fredric's force deployment and the idea of sleeping inside even if it was a barn was decidedly appetizing after the days of cold rations and hard dirt.

“Why am I here?” she repeated the question, raising an eyebrow. “For much the same reason as you are, I would guess. Though maybe with different intentions.” She preferred to keep the answer an evading one, not one to lightly give up information about what she was doing, at least not to most people. Another grin crept to her face at his sarcastic reply and it remained on her face while observing him struggle with the shoe. It of course wouldn’t be easy to slip it back on with the ankle already swollen up to a considerable size. As confused as she was by him, he seemed to be so by her as well, and it was somewhat of a relief to her. Her eyes had not missed the fact that he had been watching her and she had to admit that she was rather pleased about it. He was in a similar line of business as she was, or so she guessed, and someone like him not being able to figure her out right away was a good sign. Most people didn’t know how to read her, but then again, most people she had to deal with either didn’t bother or didn’t really get the time to even try. But it was nice for a change to know that she could still keep herself shrouded somewhat in mystery.

Cocking her head a little to the side, she looked from him to his ankle and back to him. “I’m not sure, it’s a good idea,” she replied, her voice growing a little gentler now. “Though I guess you’re right, getting you tucked away somewhere might not be a bad idea instead of remaining out here in the open.” Taking a step towards him, she stopped, unsure whether he wanted help getting up or not, plus, she had already done her bit, why should she help him more? However, she had started this, she might as well finish it; it wouldn’t kill her to give him another hand. “There is a small hut just on the outside of the village, which is barely ever used. It’s not the most comfortable hide-out, but it is one nevertheless.” Assessing him once more, she continued: “I can help you get there.” But then I’ll most likely be out of here, she added to herself. Unless he could give her a really good reason to stick around, she would have some research to do.

Seth looked at her hand and actually considered rejecting it for a minute his pride rising but he had learned long ago to push it aside and took her help gladly. Getting to his feet he went pale as pain shot through his ankle again but refused to cry out or even to let the pain show. "that would be appreciated" he gave her a crooked grin "I don’t know what you did but my ankle feels about one hundred times worse" he knew it was more likely the adrenaline was wearing off but he felt he could be excused one or two bad jokes, sheathing his dagger he reached back for his bow keeping all his weight on his ankle, "good idea or bad though I need to check that village out. " he wasn't completely at ease with her but she had been nothing but helpful so far, it just nagged at him that she would be out here in the middle of no where, just waiting to help him.

Siofra watched the struggle on his face, knowing it too well. Pride, for people like them, was important and they never lightly accepted help from anyone but themselves. So she was all the more pleased that he finally accepted her hand and agreed to let her help him. Chuckling at his words, she replied in a dry but mocking tone: “You’re welcome.” As he put his weight to his ankle however, she gave him a scolding look. “You should know better than to put even more weight on your ankle. Leave the bow where it is. You’ll be fine without it.” Siofra knew her tone would most likely not be appreciated, especially because he did not trust her, which she couldn’t blame him for, she didn’t trust him either, even though she was helping him, but he really should stop making his ankle worse than it already was. Stepping next to him, she positioned herself in a way he could use her as a crutch if needed, or rather if he could swallow his pride to do so. “The village will still be there in a few days for you to check out once your ankle is better. You’ve already strained it too much.” Shrugging, she added: “But of course, it’s your health, you should know best what to do with it.” Surprised at herself almost, she wondered why she was being so pushy at this, it wasn’t like she even cared, or did she? Though why would she? She had almost killed him earlier, and here she was helping him. Speak of a curious turn of events, even more so because she couldn’t explain it to herself.

He shook his head "the bow comes" the bow had saved his life countless times, he was an above average swords man but he was far from being in league with the best of them, stealth and his bow were his principle weapons. “I need to scout the town then get to the boarder to make my report, I cant waste time” with that he started to limp away “not with Fredric amassing his troops so close to the boarder. King Theodore wasn’t expecting any major resistance till maybe a week into the march, now its starting to look like Fredric the swine wants to force a confrontation on the boarder.” He looked over at the girl “I don’t even know your name, I am Seth, what should I call you?”

He was stubborn, and one of the worst kinds it seemed. He wasn’t even doing this for himself but for his job, and Siofra for one had learned very quickly never to give up her own health or her own wants for that of a job. A job could wait, her life couldn’t. Though sometimes she wondered when she had become so very cold about so many things. Shrugging, she replied: “You have to know what you’re doing.” She agreed on the bow in the end, knowing that she herself would have acted the same way in his stead. Her bow was almost something like her best friend and she would never go anywhere without it. “Your King Theodore is a fool. Of course Fredric knew what he was up to. Makes me wonder what kind of intelligence you had, not knowing that he was planning to strike back as soon as Theodore even considered crossing the border.” Raising an eyebrow at his statement, she considered him for a few moments longer, returning his look with an even gaze, before she nodded. “You may call me Siofra.” Only then did she pull up her hood again and fall in step next to him, carefully observing their surroundings as they were soon going to step out into a more open land. It would be quite the slow walk, especially with Seth limping so badly. If they were attacked, they better hoped they could down everyone before they got too close and out of shooting range, otherwise the situation could turn awry very quickly. Of course, Siofra could always make a run for it, but she wasn’t going to abandon someone she had just helped. Plus, he might have something more to offer after all, now that he was giving up some more information.

Seth shook his head stopping “armies aren’t the most stealthy things I known but there is no way Frederic could have had enough warning to amass the kind of force he has back there.” they were on the edge of the forest there was a thin spattering of trees ahead of them before becoming grazing land and a few fields with crops growing, “if I hadn’t hurt my ankle I might try gather more information on this whole debacle.”

He let his eyes roam across the sky for a moment before he returned his gaze to the area ahead of him “so do you want to tell me why you were just leaning against a tree waiting for me before, or are you going to shroud yourself in mystery?” the last part was heavily laden with sarcasm.

Again, the half-elf shrugged. She wasn’t one paying too much attention to what either armies were doing, or any other for that matter, but it seemed fairly obvious to her that something had gone amiss while exchanging reports somewhere along the way. “Maybe he had been planning an attack himself as well.” It seemed logical to her, though she had to admit, it would be something of a very weird coincidence if that were the case. Her gaze followed his as it turned skywards, already half expecting to see one or more dragons flying above. Lately there have been dragon patrols at regular intervals, and she did not appreciate this very much. It was hard to escape the eyes of a dragon, they had so much better eyesight than so many other beings and it was hard to keep hidden from them.

Siofra didn’t reply to his ankle comment, deciding it would be better to ignore it before she snapped. Though when he once again asked her what her purpose was, she had to laugh at his sarcasm. “I thought I already was shrouded in mystery.” The sarcasm in her voice was just as noticeable as his, and she was once more letting her eyes wander to her face, wondering what was really going on behind those green eyes of his. “I just decided to finally reveal myself to you, that’s why I’ve been leaning against the tree,” she finally explained, her voice having lost all traces of sarcasm again. “I’ve been tracking you for quite a while now, watched you kill the hound, watched you run from that group attacking you, and me for that matter, and for a while before that.” Her eyes remained on his face, wanting to see his reaction to this, her own face her typical mask, not revealing her thoughts or emotions.

Seth frowned looking at her his free hand moved to lean on his short swords hilt, “and why were you watching me?” there was a hint of steal in his eyes now and his voice was hard. There was no good reason for an ally to have hidden and followed him, not to mention he was in enemy territory so the chance of just stumbling on some one sympathetic to his cause was unlikely in the extreme. “While were at it who do you work for?” Seth had a suspicious mind one had to have one for this kind of work where everyone was a perspective enemy no matter who they are. Seth gave a moments thought to his ankle wonder if she hadn’t done something he should worry about down there Seth grasp of herb lore was limited to which mushrooms would kill you and which wouldn’t, but he had heard of some horrific deaths via poison.

Siofra watched Seth closely, noticing the almost casual gesture as his hand moved towards the hilt of his sword. His face was turning stony, as were his eyes and the tone of his voice, and she knew she had most definitely struck a note by mentioning she had been tracking him. When the question finally came, she wasn’t too pleased about it, but she had known it would come sooner or later and she had basically served it to him on a silver platter, so now she better came up with an answer that wouldn’t make him want to kill her on the spot after all, though she was fairly certain that it wouldn’t be too much of a fight, considering the state he was currently in. “I work for myself. Though I do take on the odd jobs here and there, one or the other contract slipping in from time to time.” Lifting her chin a little in an almost defiant movement, she stated coolly: “I think you can figure out the rest from there.” As she kept watching him, she could see the thoughts rattling behind his forehead as he was watching her as much as she was watching him. “Do you really think I’d help you if I wanted to kill you?” Snickering, she added, eyes pulled together in a dark look: “Don’t worry, if I had wanted to kill, you’d already be dead.”

Seth turned back to face the fields and the buildings further off into the distance “so Siofra you were hired to follow me? Who hired you?” That said Seth started walking the sooner he got to this little hut the sooner he could get some rest, he had planed to move on in the morning, but assuming she was supposed to track him he had resolved to wait till the sprain healed. Then he would make a run for it and hopefully meet up with the army while they were on the march, he wasn’t the only scout and his late return wouldn’t stop them moving forwards.

Shaking his head he had to wonder why she showed herself, whoever had set her to track him couldn’t have been his friend, and he was sure that Frederic wouldn’t have taken a personal interest in Seth, even if he had he would have had no way of knowing where Seth was, no nothing was making sense to Seth but he was sure that he should watch Siofra, if he got to comfortable around her it was likely he might find a knife stuck in his back.

“The guy who hired me is in line with a few nasty people, but I don’t know who in particular he is working for. It’s not the kind of question I ask, especially because I don’t take any job either. Your contract sounded easy enough, find and kill on sight.” Shrugging, Siofra followed him as he started hobbling onwards again. She did wonder for a moment why she even told him in so much detail, but then again, it was his life and he had a right to know. In addition, she herself was not even very sure about this job anymore, and she had already resolved on not completing it back in the forest when she had put away her arrow.

“I’m not the one you have to worry about however, in case you’re thinking I’m still out to get your hide.” She did not look at him when she said it but kept her eyes straight ahead, fixed on a point on the horizon where the hut would appear any second now. Too many thoughts were circling her mind for her to pay much attention to Seth’s intentions with her now, though she did not forget that he could try to kill her any second. The group in the forest, those that were hunting him, and then suddenly her. What had they been up to? Who had they been after? And who had sent them? As much as she tried to stay on top of her game, she didn’t understand the current situation and she was a bit at a loss on how to find out more at this moment in time.

Seth shook his head his hand gripping more tightly to the hilt of his blade “so you were going to kill me? What changed your mind?” he kept moving scanning the horizon half expecting men to materialize out of thin air and attack him, it had been much like that when he had been found just out side of Fredric armies came. Not to mention the bombshell Siofra had just drooped, he couldn’t understand how she could void her contract for seemingly no reason to him, even if she killed him now he was sure that she would get in trouble.

Merely nodding in response, she realised that maybe he would not notice this as he was almost obsessively scanning the horizon, so she voiced her reply: “Yes, I was going to kill you.” She deliberately did not reply to the second question he had asked in the same breath, at least not yet, trying to figure out why exactly it had been that she had not killed him. Out of interest, that was for certain, but was it a good enough reason to actually just drop a mission? For her, usually it was, whatever her gut told her was more important to her than what an employer said, but something about the current situation was nagging her, something was just that tiny bit too far off but she couldn’t put her finger on what exactly it was.

Finally, she simply stated what was on her mind: “You caught my interest,” she said rather dryly. “I don’t particularly enjoy being interrupted doing a job, especially not by someone else trying to kill my target, and me included. So I decided to follow you to find out more about why someone else would be after you and why they would want to kill me as well.” Moving silently next to him for another few steps, she asked: “Why is it then that you’re so badly wanted?” She shot him yet another curious glance, trying to appraise him but other than him being a scout, she couldn’t figure out why so many people so obviously wanted him dead.

Seth jumped looking at her “there is no reason anyone should want me dead, aside from the obvious” he looked back towards the forest “the group tracking me came from Fredrics forces I was watching, almost two thousand men and still growing when they caught me, I turned and ran. They had been after me for almost an hour before I killed one of their hounds and started trying to lose them” he shook his head and started walking again. “Seems like I lost one tail just to gain another” walking along the hut in view now along with a few more small buildings “interested in me? Well you took your sweet time to help didn’t you” he was muttering to himself as he walked the pain in his ankle starting to affect his mood. Sighing Seth looked over at Siofra “I’m sorry, how much father do we have to go?”
