Donotdiddlekids

Both Crowcrosses hear the group's status, and wait by the entrance of the inn.

Bed head zed

Falaos walks over to the entrance of the inn and begins to wait as well.

TheOneTrueCardinal

Sub grabbed multiple food-related goods, he looked ahead to see if he could spot water, he spotted some tanks.
"I need one of you to get atleast 3 tanks of water to the counter. And can someone grab some food aswell." He said.

Sp3ctr3EX

Raole looked towards the wolf. "I will handle the water Sub." He says as he walks towards the water tanks, picking and slowly taking them to the counter one by one until all three were there.
"Oof..." Raole says as he puts the last one, sweating from taking the tanks. "That kinda tired me up a bit, oh... Who am I kidding. I could use a bit more strength." He said with a tired and somewhat disappointed tone in his voice.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

By the time Raole had gotten all three tanks to the counter, June had brought a large sum of nonperishable food items to the counter, and was helping the cashier total it all up and bag it.

TheOneTrueCardinal

Sub had brought the food that he had grabbed to the counter, as well as 3 lighters.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam reached the entrance and waited with the group.

Paradox.XXIV

"And how about bringing Mira and Fionn through the help of the ring?" Hugh asked Dark, sure that the human would have understood what he meant, due to his previous trip inside the ring.


HolyTraitor

"Oh. Well alright. Wait here for a couple of minutes, I gotta get my stuff." Illadoce then slammed the door shut and started to pack his luggage.
He didn't come back for about 15 minutes.
Afterwards, he opened the door and placed the tons of luggage that he had next to the door, and he locked the door as well. The luggage was mostly ingots of many metals, blacksmithing tools, clothes and daily necessities. "Alright, I'm ready!"

Rakgnarok

"Allright! W-we should get going, who knows when exactly we'll have to leave.." He stares at Illadoce for a moment, "A-are you sure you don't need any help with that?" He asks, lowering his head a bit as he throws a nervous look at Mira, as if he had made a mistake.
Fionn would be wearing the flower Illadoce gave him in his vest's pocket.
Xil stands just outside the Inn leaning against a wall, he'd wave to any one who exits the Inn as to point them he is waiting for them there, his wave however would be noticably friendlier towards anthros.
He would not wave at all when Liam exits, instead glaring at him and a holding in a low growl.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"That'd, probably not be a good idea," Dark says. "It'd basically be forcing them back, and we don't know if they want to be forced back. That'd be like me forcing you to do something you don't want to do. It's better to just wait for them. I may not understand the ring all that much, but I know it'd be very intrusive and rude to just force them to disappear and reappear."

Paradox.XXIV

"A-Alright..." Hugh frowned sadly again, noticing he was nothing of an help at all again. He fondled his pockets, and exited the inn.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Right, that's everyone from this table out," Dark says to himself. He starts to walk back to his own table, then remembers Wisp. He looks around the inn for him from where he stood and notices the dragon in a corner grabbing his things from around him. He waves to him, hoping that Wisp will wave back as a sign of 'yes I know we're leaving.'

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Uh... Yeah that sure is a LOT of stuff..." Mira said, looking at it all. "We definitely wouldn't mind helping you carry it." She suddenly had an idea. "Or, if you don't mind waiting for a while to be able to get some of it back, I can... Ah... Hold it... Elsewhere." She looked around for something she wouldn't mind putting inside her ring to demonstrate what she meant and so that she didn't look crazy. She saw a pebble on the ground, and picked it up. She held it in her outstretched in her hand so that both Aodhfionn and Illadoce could see, then closed it. A moment later, she opened her hand and it was gone. "Like that."

HolyTraitor

"Oh no, that's not necessary, don't worry." Illadoce smiled weakly at Mira. He approached his forge and tried to put out the fire, before eventually giving up. He locked the doors and windows of his home and turned to Fionn. "Though if you could help me carry all of this, I'd be very happy.

TechnoXenoHolic

And indeed, Wisp did wave back at Dark, offering him a bit of a smile. "I'm coming, don't worry," he called, and scooped up his things and stood. Then he made his way to the exit of the inn, making his way around the outside of the room by the wall so he woudn't have to weave between people and tables.
He slipped out the dragon-sized exit, then stepped around the corner to wait by the door the rest of the group would be more likely to use. He shifted his weight awkwardly, not wanting to get too close to Xil. The tiger intimidated him rather a lot.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Good," Dark says to himself. He moves back to his table. "You guys ready to go?" he asked the people at the table, being Zoe, Sarah, Momo, and Yumo.
"Ready when you are," Zoe answers. Sarah was still drawing and merely nodded her head.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam waited for the group to go. He had no further business in Vile Root, and was eager to be on the move.

Rakgnarok

"Right!" He says walking closer to Illadoce ready to take any of the bags he hands him.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh greeted Wisp with a weak smile, even if he wasn't sure the dragon was looking at him. But at least seeing the large ball of shyness was doing good made Hugh's heart warm up a little.

YandereTsun

"Certainly," Momo said, with a smile. Yumo nodded.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Alright, then let's get going," Dark says.
Zoe attempts to snap Sarah back to reality. These attempts eventually work, and the two sisters eventually stand and start walking toward the door. Dark waits for the twins to get up and leave and would walk next to Momo if they were to begin walking.

YandereTsun

The twins stood up, and followed. Yumo walked behind, seeming to have a world of his own, as Momo continued to follow, catching up.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Zoe and Sarah made it to the door and exited the Inn, joining the others who were standing outside it. Dark caught the door as Zoe and Sarah left and held it open for the twins to exit through.
"Ladies first," he would say, smiling at Momo.

YandereTsun

Momo laughed softly. "I would've gotten used to opening it for you," Momo joked, as she walked. Yumo looked at Momo, then at Dark as he walked.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark would follow Yumo as he exited the Inn. As soon as he got out, he would turn to Xil.
"That's all of them," he says to the tiger.

Rakgnarok

"Are you sure?" Xil says, looking around clearly looking for someone specifically, "Where are Mira, Firaas and Jack?" He asks.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Mira is with Fionn. They left some time ago," Dark says. "And, the two anthros? I didn't know they were with us."

Rakgnarok

"Huh?.. Well, this 'Fionn' guy better be strong..." He says clearly slightly worried for Mira, "Anyway, lemme just go get Jack and Firaas and we'll get going." He says, going into the inn and going straight to the two, "Hey, uh ,seems like the other guys didnt tell you but we're leaving and, you two wanted to tag along right?" He says to them.

Paradox.XXIV

As he saw Xil head inside the inn, Hugh distractedly stared at his locket, and spoke out loud. "Hopefully stronger than you."

Donotdiddlekids

The two anthros turn around at Xil.
"Oh, yes, thanks for reminding us!", Jack exclaimed before the both of them get up and go.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Having watched the moving arrangements be made from the rooftops, the anthro that had tried to abduct Mira before darted towards where they had tied up their horse. They quickly prepared themself and their horse for the trip and then saddled off. They were headed towards Harknest with more than enough time to spare to get there before their targets.
The monks drew to a stop just outside the gates of Harknest. Ryan scraped at the ground impatiently while Gamey slid off of his back, landing on the ground softly.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Natalie and Thalia, standing outside the gate, had watched the two monks ride up. "Good morning, Monks." Natalie says, walking up to the two. "What brings you to Harknest?"

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"We need to speak to Alicia Harss," Gamey said, "Whenever she's free is fine. It's not terribly urgent, but It probably isn't the least of her concerns."
Ryan looked around, his ears perked up on high alert.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Natalie looks surprised for a second, then gets a sad look on her face. "I... regret to inform you that Alicia has passed," Natalie says. "We can, however, set up a meeting with her uncle if you wish. He's taken up the temporary leadership of the Swordsmen for the time being." She adds, the sad expression leaving her.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Gamey was stunned for a moment, and had no idea what to say. Ryan filled in where she couldn't: "We'll take it."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Alright, Thalia!" Natalie calls. Thalia walks up to them. "Thalia here will escort you to Harss Manor." Natalie says. The coyote looks at the two monks as if she were sizing them up, then says; "Come with me." She then turns towards the now open gates, walking.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Both Gamey and Ryan followed the coyote. Gamey followed a couple of feet behind, while Ryan trailed behind by a few yards. The massive centaur was obviously uncomfortable in the small-to-him sized streets, especially since they were not empty. He was very wary of stepping on people, especially when a feline anthro passed him.

Are You Freddy For Ready

The three arrived at Harss Manor. Thalia walked right up to the door and knocked on it. After a bit of waiting, Charles, the Harss Family butler, answered the door. "Ah, Miss Thalia," Charles says, looking behind her. "And friends." "These two need to speak to Tybalt." Thalia says, pointing behind her back at the two. "Right then, why don't you inform him while I make our guests comfortable." Charles says. Thalia nods and walks past the aging cat anthro. Charles looks back at the monks. "Well, come in." Charles says, motioning for them to enter.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Ryan looked at the door with a doubting expression. "I'll... Stay out here, I think," he said after a moment of considering. "I'm sure I'd only end up breaking something if I tried to come in."
Gamey nodded at Ryan. "I'll come in though," she said, doing just that. "Only one of us really needs to do the talking anyways."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Of course. Right this way." Charles says, leading the human to the living room. "Thalia will come get you when Master Harss is ready. Until then, you can sit where you like." Charles says. He leaves the room to go and fetch something, leaving Gamey alone in the living room.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Gamey smiled as the butler left. Moments later, she was perched on the moulding over the doorway, eying the chandelier, but deciding she'd better not.
Ryan on the other hand, tucked himself beside the wall of the manor so as to not get in anyone's way.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Charles comes back into the living room with a tray containing a tea pot and a tea cup. "Would you like some tea, mi-" Charles says, stopping mid-sentence to look around the room. "Miss?" he asks, confused as to where she had went. Did Thalia come for her already?

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"I'd love some," Gamey said with a smile from her high perch. "You might want to look out. I'll have to jump down."

Are You Freddy For Ready

Charles jumps in fright, nearly droping all the contents of his tray. He turns to the perched human. "R-right." Charles says, backing up to allow Gamey the needed room to jump down.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Gamey hopped down lightly, and offered Charles a smile. "Thank you. Sorry if I scared you."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"It's... fine," Charles says, giving her a nervous smile. He poors Gamey a cup of tea and hands it to her. "It's a bit hot, so you may want to blow on it."
Thalia left Tybalt's study and started walking down the stairs to the main floor.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Gamey graciously took the tea and took a sip of it, not caring a bit that it was hot, black, and unsweetened.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Charles bowed then left the room as Thalia walked in. "He's ready," Thalia says, leaning on the doorway of the living room.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Great," Gamey said before swallowing the rest of her tea in a single gulp. She left the cup and saucer on an end table and walked up to Thalia so that she could lead her.

Are You Freddy For Ready

And lead her she did. Thalia walked up the stairs of the manor to the floor Tybalt's study was on, then led her past the bedrooms to its door. She knocks on the door.
"Come in," said Tybalt from the other side. Thalia opens it and holds it open for Gamey to enter. When Gamey enters she would leave, the door closing behind her.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Gamey walked right up to Tybalt's desk. She wore a smile on her way up, but as soon as she stopped in front of the Harss, her pleasant expression dropped. She would wait until she had been greeted to begin her explanation as to why she was there.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Tybalt sits up in his chair, crossing his fingers. "Greetings, Monk." Tybalt says, motioning for her to sit in the chair on the opposite side of the desk that he was on. "What brings you here?"

Rakgnarok

Xil exits the Inn as well, he'd stand where everyone can see him, "Allright then, seems like that everyone and since you've all supposedly already packed, how 'bout we get going now? Follow me and try not to be slow, the other two surely will need some help carrying the supplies." He says, as he finishes he turns around and starts walking towards the stables at a slightly-faster-than-normal pace, clearly not caring if anyone lags behind.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"One of your people stole a book from our Vile Root library. They managed to get in without our Organizer knowing- that's no small task, mind you- and then they got out just as quickly and mysteriously. What they took wasn't too important, and I'm sure we have a replacement, but it still doesn't reflect too well on your faction to have this sort of thing happen, and to offer no explanation for it. So I'm here for your explanation."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Right, I'll stay here and wait for Mira and Fionn," Dark says, leaning on the side of the Inn. "I'll meet you all there."
Zoe and Sarah follow Xil, Sarah holding Zoe's hand.
Tybalt narrowed his eyes. "Do you know how they got in?" Tybalt asks, wanting to know more about the 'Swordsman' that had taken the book before giving an explanation.

TechnoXenoHolic

Wisp followed along behind Xil, not too keen on being left behind now that he was supposed to be a part of this group.

Bed head zed

Falaos was following Xil at a steady pace.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"It's almost like they teleported in. That's the only way I can think of that would get past our Organizer's eyes."

Are You Freddy For Ready

Tybalt strokes his chin. "So, a Mystery then..." Tybalt says. "Last I checked we didn't have a Mystery Mage in our ranks. How do you know they were one of us?" he then asks.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Gamey thought for a moment. "They wore one of your masks. Last I checked those weren't just available at every other corner market."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Well then, considering we don't have any Mages that use the Mystery Element in the Swordsmen, I believe we have ourselves a rogue mage impersonating one of us." Tybalt says.

Donotdiddlekids

Both pairs were following Xil, the Crowcrosses looking around as they walked.

Skaitleen03

Scarlet was alone. Apon seeking Dark, she slowly approached him.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark didn't notice the wolf's approach, looking to the sky as his group mates left. If the wolf were to get closer, he'd eventually notice her.

HolyTraitor

Illadoce gave the lighter bags to illadoce, as well as one bag full of metal. He carried the rest, STILL struggling a lot. He didn't care, though. As long as he had help.
"If you're having trouble, Fionn, then you can return me the bags and I'll carry them by myself."
He looked at the flower Fionn had in his vest pocked for a moment, and smiled. But he quickly continued to walk down the stairs of his home to the road.

Skaitleen03

Scarlet gets closer and nudges dark on the leg.

Rakgnarok

"R-Right! Don't worry, i can carry them!" He says, struggling slightly with the bag full of metal but carrying it still, "We should hurry back to the inn im sure there's lots of things to prepare before we get ready to leave" he adds.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh followed the group from behind, keeping an eye on any possible slower people.

TheOneTrueCardinal

After asking for all the prices and paying the cashier, Sub looked at all the stuff they bought. "Okay, so we need to move all of this to the carriage.... we definitely can't carry all of this at once, so do you just mean them one by one outside or do you guys have any other ideas??" He asked the two.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark feels the nudge and looks down.
"AHHHH!" he screams, jumping away from the wolf. "Stay back!" he says, putting his hand on his sword hilt.
If someone were to read Dark's mind they would learn of his fear of wolves.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Uhh... Take these one by one... Again..." Raole says while looking at the tanks then at Sub. "I regret handling the water already." He thinks. "Well, I have no other ideas Sub, I guess we will just take them outside, just give me a moment to regain my strength." He says with a nervous smile.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira would take any bags handed to her, and would follow the other two silently.
June grinned as she started picking up everything- everything - that Sub had bought. It was a bit of a balancing act, but with several bags to each arm, and the water tanks on her shoulders, she managed. "Just back to the stables, right?" she asked, only a slight amount of strain in her voice.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Holy sh-" Raole said rather stupefied by what June just did. "She is taking all of it like its nothing." He thought. "We- Well then..." Raole said with a dumb look on his face. "I guess that works."

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh barely heard Dark's screech, but it still made him stop for a brief moment, looking towards the inn.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Huh.... I never seen someone carry a lot of stuff at once like that in awhile." He thought, a bit amazed. "Yep, back to the stables." He answered

Toreadorfreddy

Liam followed the group to the stables, trying to keep pace with them.

00:26, November 28, 2016

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Alright. Meet you there," June said, then disappeared with a small puff of green.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Huh.... I guess she wasn't gonna walk the way there." He remarked. "Well let's head to the stables" Sub said as went outside the mart, he looked for the around for the group to see if they are close.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Yeah..." Raole said wondering how June just puffed away. "Lets go Sub." He said as he followed the big wolf outside.

Skaitleen03

Scarlet backed up in fear of the sword but sat a foot away from dark. She gives a sad look to dark.

YandereTsun

Momo heard the shout,as she ran back and came in the scene where Dark and Scarlet were. "What's going on?" she asked. Before then, she read Dark's mind and found out his fear of wolves. She stood between Scarlet and Dark. "Hey, now... Everything's alright, you two. No one will hurt the other," she said, pertaining to both of them.

Rakgnarok

Xil looks back for a moment, looking at Hugh standing there and Momo heading back, "I told you not to be slow and if you guys go back, a ain't coming back for ya." He yells out to both bluffing, as leaving them behind is not something he can afford if they're the ones he's looking for.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark took a step back. Now that Momo had come, he took his hand off his sword, now feeling somewhat safe and no longer needing to take it out. He was breathing heavily, however, as he was still in the presence of a wolf.
"Something tells me they don't care if you don't go back for them, Xil," Zoe says, looking back and learning why Momo had ran back and Hugh had stopped. She didn't go back to help, as she felt that Momo had the situation under control, and Dark didn't seem to need any healing, aside from his leg of course, which was way out of her league.

YandereTsun

"It's okay... I know this wolf," Momo said softly, with a smile, as she patted Scarlet on the head. After a few moments, Momo couldn't help but let out a small laughter when she noticed Dark breathing heavily. "Hey, are you alright?"

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Yeah, I'm... I'm fine... Just... wolves and all..." Dark says, calming down a bit and breathing less heavily. Thanks for the save, he thought, hoping Momo would catch his thought.

YandereTsun Momo heard the thought, then smiled. It's no problem, really... she thought back. "I thought something bad happened, so I rushed back," Momo continued, in between laughs.

Rakgnarok

"Well i don't care if they don't care so i guess this means more space for us on the carriages, they wanna be left behind? Well this is their lucky day cause I'll do just that." He says, although being a bluff, he'd seem very serious and decisive about it, making it harder to tell its a bluff, after finishing he'd even start walking a bit faster.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Zoe chuckles "I doubt the others would be willing to leave without them, considering things," she says. She and Sarah go back to following the tiger.
Dark starts to blush in embarrassment. "It's not funny..." he says, though quietly.

YandereTsun

Momo giggles. "Alright then," she said.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh saw from where he was that everything had been sorted out quickly, and smiled to Dark and Momo. He turned around, and walked forward again. "We keep an eye on each other, that's how a group works, Xil." he simply said.

Rakgnarok

He turns slightly to his side, showing Hugh half of his face, he'd have a snobbish smile, "Like you did with Mira?" He turns back to facing foward, "In the end the only person you can count on is yourself, forget that and you will end up dead." He says in a rather serious tone.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh's face turned red from shame and anger at once. He clenched his fist but kept following the same speed as before.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"You're one to talk, Xil," Zoe says. "One minute, you're saying we should leave Mira and the others behind, the next you're teasing Hugh for, well, leaving her behind."
Sarah let go of Zoe's hand and fell back a bit, walking next to Hugh.
"What's wrong, Mr. Bunny?" she asks.

Rakgnarok

"Thats different!" Xil answers quickly, "Its not like they're getting kidnapped or something.." He continues crossing his arms and looking away from Zoe.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Right, got it," Zoe says, rolling her eyes, contempt with winning this small argument.

Rakgnarok

"Ugh, whatever lets just hurry up, we're almot there..." Xil answers clearly annoyed and short of an answer.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh gradually relaxed, his quick temper making him forget the shame of letting Mira go get kidnapped in an instant as he turned to Sarah. He took his paw out of his pocket, the one closest to the little girl, and he bended his knees a bit so he could talk to her more easily. "Ah, nothing, little human. We're going to another adventure!" he said excitedly, looking into her eyes. "Isn't that great?"

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Alright alright," Zoe says, laughing a bit at Xil's annoyed answer.
"We are?" Sarah asks. "Zoe just says we're going back to Harknest. Though, I guess the trip there could be an adventure!"
Dark's embarrassment eventually subsided. He looked behind Momo, expecting to see the others waiting for her to get back. His expectations were not met. "Well, since your guide to the stables went on without you," Dark says. He sat on a nearby bench. "Do you want to join me in waiting for Mira and Fionn?" he asked, smiling at the Mind Elemental. He was still wary of Scarlet and would try to move away from her if she were to get close.

TheOneTrueCardinal

Sub went in front of the stables, standing there and looking for when the group comes.

Skaitleen03

Scarlet looked sad about the whole thinking she was hostile but was used to this whole thing.
'Hey,Momo! Please tell Dark that he doesnt need to fear me... To be honest Momo,I Kinda hate when people avoid me just for being a wolf...' Scarlet thought and just moved a far distance from Dark and Momo.

YandereTsun

As Momo sat down next to Dark, she heard Scarlet's thoughts and nodded. Momo looked at Dark. "Scarlet said that you don't need to fear her... She dislikes it when she gets avoided just because she's a wolf..." Momo said. "I also think that you shouldn't be afraid of her... She's different."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"I... can't promise anything..." Dark says. "It's more complicated than just 'oh, it's a wolf, be afraid of it.'"

YandereTsun

"I see..." Momo muttered, then looked at Scarlet with a frown, as she shooked her hood. She looked back at Dark. "Well, I cannot force you to stop such fear, can I?" she stated.

Skaitleen03

Scarlet though,'It's fine,Momo. He doesn't have to like me. I understand he might have had some traumatic expirience... I just want to get along the others but i dont think it will be that easy...'

YandereTsun

Momo heard Scarlet, then looked back at her. She visibly feels bad for her, shown by the expression she had on her face. I'm sorry... She sighed, then looked down. She puffed her cheeks, then looked forward at the nothingness in front of her. "Maybe some day..." she said with a smile.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Hmm?" Dark says, looking at his friend stare off into nothingness. "Maybe some day?" he added.

YandereTsun

Momo blushed in embarassment, as she shook her head. "Nothing," she stated, with a few laughs of nervousness.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

After a while of walking, Mira, Fionn, and Illadoce would arrive back at the inn, the journey mostly silent due to the tensions between all three group members. And then they arrived back at the inn, seeing Dark, Momo, and Scarlet.
"Hey! Just relaxing out here or are we ready to go right now?" Mira called out, instantly cheering up.

YandereTsun

Are you sure you're okay? They're here now, so we'll leave soon. Come along, she thought to Scarlet.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Oh, hey!" Dark says, standing up. He ignores Lynet's presence. "We're ready to go. Everyone else is at the stables. We just waited behind for you two."

YandereTsun

Momo followed. "Where were you all?" she asked in curiosity.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Three," Mira corrected. "The Hellspawn's coming with us. Ayfy and I were going to go get him." The cat's stance conveyed a feeling of daring Dark to challenge her. She had a feeling he would protest, but she believed strongly that everyone who wanted to be a part of the group should be.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark decided not to challenge Mira, realizing it'd get him nowhere with the cat anthro. "Fine. Let's just go to the stables then." He says.

Skaitleen03

Scarlet thought with worry,'Momo,What about me? Can i come along??' In her mind the fear of being left behing was growing...

YandereTsun

Momo mumbles quietly. Of course, she decides with a smile. Let's go.

Skaitleen03

Scarlets body lanuguage showed she was relieved to hear this and stands closer to Momo.

Rakgnarok

Fionn would seem to opt to be silent, oddly more shy that usual specially when Mira speaks he'd avoid eye contact with anyone and would just carry the bags handed to him by illadoce.
If momo were to read his mind, he would be repeating "Don't think about that" over and over, overpowering any other thought he has with it.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh had instinctively looked back in the middle of the way. He had felt that vibe that was coming from the inn, knowing the group would be reunited again soon. He and Sarah were too far from it, though, and the street as mostly empty, but the rabbit smiled and sighed, patting the little girl's head. "Oh, I didn't know you were from Harknest..." He smiled wider. "How is it over there? It's quite a way up North, is it?"

Are You Freddy For Ready

"No, me and Zoe are from Yarrin, but we visit Harknest a lot because of Zoe's job," Sarah says. "But I prefer Harknest over Yarrin cause Harknest has lots of cat anthros who are noice and friendly."

Paradox.XXIV

"Cat anthros?!" Hugh giggled and kept walking with the child. "That must be so cool, are they all like Mira you think?" The rabbit asked.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Not exactly," Sarah says. She attempts to recall some of the cat anthros she has seen in Harknest. "They all have different furs! Some are orange, and white, and black, and... lots of colors! And their furs have different shapes on em. Some are even puffy!" She adds. She does a motion with her arms that supposedly represents puffiness.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh laughed louder than expected at the sound the human made, holding the sides of his vest while walking. He giggled some more then wipe an inexistent tear off his cheek, and turned to Sarah. "Aww, maybe we'll cross one there, and you'll show me how puffy they can be, alright?"

Are You Freddy For Ready

"I'm sure we'll see lots of em! Zoe says that there are almost more cats than humans in Harknest!" Sarah says enthusiastically.
Zoe had been listening in on her sister and Hugh's conversation, happy that her sister found someone that would listen to her ramblings that wasn't a complete stranger.

Rakgnarok

"Ok, here we are" He says pointing to sub who stands in front of the stables, "Go and get all your stuff ready, the carriages should be ready soon, ill go check if theres more supplies to be loaded" he says heading towards Sub, "Hey, are all the supplies done or is there more to load?" He asks.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Nope, June brought them all into the stables, everything should be ready." Sub said as he turned towards Xil. "Crap, the lighters are in there, I forgot to take them out when June brought them to the stables." He thought.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Damn, thats one big group, good thing there will be enough room for everyone." Raole said to himself.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam, having just arrived at the stables, looked back for Dark and Momo.

Paradox.XXIV

"Well we'll see if Mira likes that too then!" The rabbit said. They had now the stables in view. "Aah!" Hugh sighed happily. "Almost there!" He started running with Sarah towards Liam, Roale, Sylvan and Xil, laughing as he ran.

HolyTraitor

Illadoce decided to carry the heavier luggage. He shouldn't be underestimating Fionn but he did anyway. He turned to Mira, who was a little ahead of him. "Hey, we're going to Harknest, right? Never had the pleasure to go there."

Are You Freddy For Ready

Sarah ran after Hugh, falling behind due to being much younger and shorter, but still able to keep up with him a bit.
Zoe was at the stables and decided to just wait outside them as the only things she had was a bag that she would put into whatever carriage she and Sarah will be in.
Dark would just wait for their small group to start heading toward the stables, hoping that someone would lead as he had no idea where they were.

Rakgnarok

"Oh, I've heard a about harknest, its kinda close to where I live but uhh, I never had a chance to visit" Fionn lets out shyly.
"Huh, well, what about who's going where? Should we look into that or is it first come first serve?" Xil asks.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh ran slower on purpose, smiling at the child as he crossed an immaterial finish line. He chuckled and waited for the human to come through as well, and cheered at her arrival.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Sarah crosses the immaterial finish line breathing heavily. She doesn't say anything, but has a semi-big smile on her face.
Zoe watched as the two had ran up, smiling. "It'd be best to wait for the others before we decide who goes where, especially considering we don't know who all is in the group," she says to Xil, looking away from her sister to answer Xil.
"Really? Where are you from, Fionn?" Dark asks. He had been listening to Fionn's conversation with Lynet as it had to do with Harknest.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh looked alternatively at Sarah and Zoe, trying to catch the first one's glance to tell her with a smile how sweet Sarah was. He had his paws on his legs, crouching a little to look at the young girl. "Hehe, tired already, little Miss?" he asked with a challenging tune, but it a obvious he was only joking.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira decided very quickly that she would be silent. She didn't want to pry into Fionn's past any more for quite a while.
June leaned against a wall with the luggage around her on the ground. She looked over and saw the others enter the area and nodded them over. It would be apparent to the decisive eye that she was trying to keep them out of the way of the people that worked at the stable.

Rakgnarok

He'd look very unsure about answering but he still does anyway after a moment, "W-well um, I was born on Hideston but I moved to a small town um, south of Harknest at the age of 10, um, the town is named Fael, i͢ts really nice and calm and its kinda small, almost everyone knows anyone, I love how it looks in the winter when it snows, I sometimes like to walk around the forest when it snows, oh and when the baker starts cooking the whole town smells super nice.." He says clearly ranting.
"Well then, just tell me when we are about to leave I'm gonna go take a nap but uh, just don't touch me while I sleep Ok?" He says, he'd go and sit down on the floor in front of the stables, leaning against the wall and closing his eyes.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"No, not tired at all!" Sarah says defensively, but then soon admits. "Maybe a little..."
"Right," Zoe says. After her short conversation with Xil, she'd notice June nodding her and the others over and assumed that she was with the group and wanted them to move out of the way. She would then turn back to the others who had followed.
"Oi, guys, let's move over to her," Zoe says, turning and pointing at June.
Upon second glance, she noticed the woman's chest area, which bore a crest which Zoe recognized as a coalition crest. She made a mental note to keep an eye on her...
"Hmm, Fael," Dark says, waiting for Fionn to finish before speaking. "I've heard of that place, but never been. We should check it out sometime."

Rakgnarok

Fionn would seem surprise at Dark saying that, "R-right, maybe later, um, but first we should go straight to Harknest and take care of what you need to take care of.." He adds.

TechnoXenoHolic

As the group was gathering at the stables, the gate behind the stable building opened and the carriages, led by their horses and steered by various anthros, trundled out and around to line up at the side of the road. "Group to Harknest," announced the reptilian woman driving the first carriage.

TheOneTrueCardinal

Sub started moving over to June as Zoe said. He closed his eyes for a bit on the way, using metal sense to see if you can spot the lighters anywhere and re-opening them. "So is everything packed and ready??" He asked as he reached her.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"That's us! Over here!" Zoe calls to the reptilian, waving her hand in the air like she just don't care.
"Right, yeah, we should probably get moving," Dark says. He looks around the street they were in. "Uh, does anyone know where the stables are?"

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Sub could notice that June had some hidden metal on her if he payed attention when scanning the bags.
"It's all in the bags," the woman confirmed. "I'm waiting on Mira, but if you want to start getting these loaded, that would be a good idea. two bags of food in each carriage should do it. I don't know what you want to do about the water."
"I don't, but I think I can take us there," Mira said, smiling. "I just have to focus on people that I know will be there... Like Hugh." She closed her eyes for a moment. "And Xil," she added as an afterthought.

TheOneTrueCardinal

Sub noticed the hidden metal object on her (whatever it might be), he noted this as something to look for if he looks ever needs to look for June.
"Oh neat, what about the lighters?? Forgot to take them out of the pile when I bought them." He asked

Rakgnarok

Fionn looks rather confused as Mira takes the lead, he'd nod and simply follow her quietly once she starts leading the way.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"So... I take it we're going back to that place again, Mira?" Dark says, referring to the Ring as that place.

Donotdiddlekids

Max scans the surroundings, coming across Xil again and looking away quickly so as not to embarrass himself again.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"I have no idea. I was just carrying the bags. You'll have to find them yourself," June said. "What do you need lighters for anyways?"
"No, I don't know how to control that yet, and I don't want to try it out with a group of people," Mira said. "We're just going to walk." The cat started walking.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Oh, ok then," Dark says. He starts to follow, moving up to Mira's side. he felt now would be a good time to ask about Lynet. "So, why are we taking the psycho who nearly killed Fionn and Max?" he asked quietly so as to avoid the others hearing him.

Bed head zed

Falaos heard Sub talking to June. Why does he need lighters? I'm right here... He thought, kinda offended.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Oh, I need them for..." He took out his sword, clicked the button that made the sword burst into flames and unsheathed it immediately to not cause any indoor fires. "That's what I need em for." He said.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"They made up, I guess," Mira whispered back. She glanced at the two, then shrugged. "We have a habit of nearly dying anyways, so I don't really see the problem. Oh, I like the new leg by the way. Looks really intricate."
"Uuuhuh..." June said, raising an eyebrow at the contraption, and at Sub himself. "But you already have it working, so why do you need more lighters?"

Rakgnarok

Fionn lowers his head slightly and starts walking slightly slower, lagging a bit behind as he follows them.

Donotdiddlekids

Max looks over at Xil again, kinda staring this time, not really paying attention to Alexis seeing him and sneaking up behind Max.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"This one uses oil lighters, which means I have to replace them once in awhile. The ones I bought don't and I'm planning to replace it with the market lighters" Sub said.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Oh, thanks," Dark says. "To be honest, though, it's a bit uncomfortable, mostly because of these straps. And, of course, the weight. But the blacksmith says that it's magic metal or something and the straps won't be needed for long. So that's something to look forward to."
Zoe heard the burst of flames and turned to see Sub sheathing his sword. Hmm... she thought, and walked toward him and June, thinking this a good opportunity to meet some people in the group and to learn about the coalition mage.

Donotdiddlekids

Max keeps staring until Alexis scares him from behind and Max jumps back.
"Ahhhdontdothaaaat!", Max says in a cringing state, surprisingly quiet for a guy who just got scared, although still spooked nonetheless.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh laughed a little more but smiled joyfully at Sarah. "Aw, it's alright, you'll maybe take a nap in the carriage, since we're going soon... You think we'll be in the same carriage?" He asked as he walked with her, closer to the stables and her sister.

TheOneTrueCardinal

Sub turned towards Zoe as he heard her coming towards them. He gave her an "Oh.. it's you" face.

Skaitleen03

Scarlet followed Momo and the others as they headed for the stables. As they headed their Scarlet made sure to stear clear of Dark probably developing a fear of scaring him.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

June nodded at Zoe and smiled slightly. "You weren't with the group back in the teashop, were you?" she asked.
After a while of leading by her intuition, the small group of stragglers finally walked into the stables.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Zoe smiled back. "Not that I recall," Zoe says. "My sister and I only joined last night"
"I dunno," Sarah says, shrugging. "I'll probably be with my sister, though, that's for sure."
"Looks like we made it," Dark says.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Yep," Mira replied. She noticed the small collection of people around June and walked over to join them.
"I guess this group is just constantly expanding," June thought aloud, then saw Mira. "Ah, there you are. I was getting worried that you wouldn't show up," she called to her.
"No, I'm here, and ready to get going. Are our carriages ready?" Mira asked.
"They just finished. The lizard over there is the head of the caravan I think," June replied.

Rakgnarok

As they arrive at the stables fionn places down illadoce's bags, "Um, there you go, now all there is to do is load these onto your carriage" he says giving illadoce a quick smile, he turns to mira, "Wow, youre good at finding stuff.." He says softly as he takes out a small wooden box from his pocket and pretends to clean it as an excuse to not look at her in the eye.
Xil continues sleeping in front of the stables, he frowns slightly as his ears ocasionally twitch whenever a bug flies near to them.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Well, that's a part of my Element, I think. I've become so much more aware of where and what things are since this crazy adventure started. And I read some notes by an old one, and he was quite good at just knowing things, even if he hadn't learned them," Mira said, rambling a bit. "Like how he knew which of his grandchildren would get his powers when he passed. Apparently these gifts only change their hosts when the old one dies."

Skaitleen03

Scarlet walked over to fionn saying,"Fionn? Are you Okay?"

Are You Freddy For Ready

Zoe turns to Mira. "I take it you're the Mystery Elemental, then?" Zoe asks the cat. She had overheard Mira and Fionn's conversation due to it taking place next to her and connected the dots.
Dark had decided to lean up against a wall. He watched everyone's conversations from where he was.

Rakgnarok

Fionn nods at mira, "thats sort of sad.." He says quietly, he looks at scarlet and smiles gently, ~yeah, I'm okay~ he lies, his ears being folded down indicating the contrary.

YandereTsun

Yumo looked at his sister who just arrived. "There you are... Thought where you would've ran off uto," he said, only carrying a few bags with their things in it. Yumo just shrugged, as he gave Momo her bags. "Here ya go," he just simply said, ignoring what Momo said, then went on to carry his things. (Edited)

TechnoXenoHolic

Figureing he should get himself situated, Wisp quietly picked a carriage and got himself sat down. He curled his wings and tail in thightly and tucked his belongings out of the way, between his legs and halfway beneath his seat.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh kept walking and gladly saw that the group was complete again. He kept staring at Mira for a little longer than he should have, and quickly shook his head out of the embarrassment. He moved toward Wisp, who had been silent for mot of the day already and kind of let Sarah go to her sister, and greeted the dragon with a shy "hi..." as he walked to the carriage.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Yeah," Mira replied shortly to Zoe. "So... Free for all to get us sorted into the carriages seems like the best idea to me," she joked.
"Well, if you're all as varied in relationships as you seem, perhaps that would actually be the best. Otherwise we're going to spend hours bickering over who gets to sit with who," June said.
"Well I... I was kind of joking," Mira said blankly.
"But it was a good idea," June countered. "I'll be the last to choose since I'm new to the group, and don't have any real need to sit with anyone. I'll be able to talk to you later on about our powers."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Sounds like a plan," Zoe says. She looks around the area where she stood, trying to spot Sarah. She didn't. "Uh... have you two happened to see Sarah around?" she asked them.
Sarah had moved over to where Dark was, who had been resting his eyes while leaning on the wall.
"Hi, Connor!" Sarah says to Dark, startling him. He looked down at the little girl.
"Oh, hey Sarah. You scared me," Dark says.

TheOneTrueCardinal

Sub decided to move away from the ladies and move over to the carriages, he picked one of the open carriages that wisp wasn't in and got on, he didn't need to pack anything due to him not having any bags on him.

Sp3ctr3EX

Raole saw the carriages and noticed that some were still empty, he picked one of them and sitted waiting for someone else to join him, since he didnt had any stuff, it was an easy job for him. "Ah, finally a comfy seat." He said to himself.

Bed head zed

Falaos watched Sub go into the carriage and decided to ride with him. He walks over and hops into it. "I guess we'll be riding together." He says.

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Right..... you know it'll be even better if Max was here. It'll be like last time.... although, we'll have one empty, don't know who's gonna tag along in that one though." He said as Falaos got on.

Rakgnarok

Fionn stands around clearly unsure of which carriage to climb on to.

Donotdiddlekids

Max climbs into the carriage with his friends, Alexis climbing in after him and sitting down.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh looked to the side and immediately smiled as he recognized Fionn. He waved largely at the wolf, smiling at him. "Fionn! You're here!" The rabbit called him out.

Skaitleen03

"Whats wrong? I can tell by you ears you lying..." Scarlet says looking at fionn while wondering where which one they are gonna be in aswell.

YandereTsun

Momo carries her bag, as she looked at each carriage.

Rakgnarok

Fionn does a small wave back at Hugh and gives him a faint smile, ~Its nothing... Ok? We should get on a carriage, it seems Hugh is inviting me... You said you wanted to stay close to me before right? So uh, you should come with me, im sure Hugh won't mind.~ He says to Scarlet avoiding the topic, once he finishes he walks over to the carriage, "Hey, do you mind if Scarlet joins us?.." He asks to Hugh, waiting below to help scarlet up once Hugh gives him an answer.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh nodded and looked at Wisp. "I'm sure it'll be fine!" He said enthusiastically. "Besides, the trip could lead us trough some dangerous or cold area, she should find a good warm spot on this carriage, I'm thinking about traveling with Wisp and you, so..."
He hopped onto the carriage and climbed until an empty seat, right in front of Wisp. Hugh was now facing away from the front of the carriage, and he held a paw to Fionn."... You two should come and save your spots!"

Skaitleen03

Scarlet knods her head and looks a bit shamed for asking. She hides behind fionn as he waits for hughs answer.

Rakgnarok

Fionn nods at Hugh and turns to Scarlet right after, he kneels down, ~Need some help climbing on?~ he asks her.

Skaitleen03

Scarlet knods her heads and accepts saying to fionn,"Thanks"

Rakgnarok

Fionn picks Scarlet up and places her on the carriage, ~You don't need to thank me really but um, no problem~ he says, he climbs on to the carriage and sits down bowing at Hugh and wisp before sitting as both a salute and a thank you.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh chuckled softly and took care to not be too largely seated on the carriage, only lightly spreading his ankles apart to let Wisp's belongings fit perfectly between them. "So formal, dear!" He then sighed a bit excitedly, eager to be able to travel through largely scaled horizons once again.

Skaitleen03

Scarlet sits down akwardly next to fionn avoiding any eye contact.

Mangledmeddlingmetal

Mira shrugged, and decided that she wouldn't argue with her own joke anymore. "Well alright then. Just make sure we get to connect again. We can still learn a lot from each other, June," Mira said with a smile. She excitedly turned and ran up to the carriage Hugh, Wisp, Fionn, and Scarlet were in. She didn't notice the wolf. "Mind if I join you guys?" she asked. She was clearly excited for the carriage ride.
June stayed leaned against the wall, and lightly kicked the ten bags of food into five pairs.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Wow, thanks for the help," Zoe says sarcastically as she watches Mira go talk to Hugh after ignoring her question. She turns to June. "Have you seen a little girl about yay high around?" she asks, using her hand to show the height.
"Where's your sister?" Dark asks.
"Oh, she's over there," Sarah says. "Can we get in a carriage now?"
"We should check in with Zoe first, so she knows where you are," Dark says.
"It'll be fine, I'm sure she knows exactly where I am," Sarah says.
"Well, alright then," Dark says. The two walk to the carriage that was in the middle of the other four, walking past Zoe who was looking at June and not paying attention. Sarah sees Momo.
"Momo!" Sarah says, waving to her. "You should sit with us!"

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh leaned over to look a Mira, and nodded as excitedly as the cat anthro. He couldn't hold a light blush and a smile as he asked: "You want to take our last seat?"

Rakgnarok

Fionn looks to Mira and simply nods approvingly, he turns to look at his hands in his lap and starts simply playing with his fingers.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"You mean the little one that just walked right behind you, or someone else?" June asked with a slight chuckle.
Mira climbed into the carriage, and sat down in the last spot, her grin very visible. She then saw Scarlet. "Oh, we've got a beast-wolf with us?" she asked.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh patted Scarlet's back. "I'm trying to get along with wolves too!" He said joyfully, turning to Fionn as the rabbit's face became a little redder. "I-I mean..."

Are You Freddy For Ready

Sarah looks behind her and manages to catch Sarah in the corner of her eye before she moved out of sight. "Yes, that would be her..." Zoe says with a bit of a nervous laugh, happy her sister was around. She turns back. "Thanks for the help, Ms..?"

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira giggled slightly at Hugh's failure. "This is why I specify beast or man when both are present," she said.
"Alenger. June Alenger," June said, extending her hand for Zoe to shake.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Zoe shook June's hand. "Zoe Acker, a pleasure to be meeting you," she says.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh sighed and tried to explain himself. "I've never really made any difference... I-I was sometimes afraid of certain... species, but I-I respected everyone equally, beast or not...!" The rabbit didn't know where to look at to hide his confusion and embarrassment, since he was in the very middle of the carriage.

Rakgnarok

Fionn would seem spaced out and keep playing with his fingers not paying attention to their conversation at all.

Bed head zed

Falaos smiled as Max and Alexis entered the carriage. "Looks like the whole gang's here!" He said cheerfully.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam entered a carriage, and waited to depart.

Sp3ctr3EX

Raole notices Liam enter. "Oh hey, so you are one of the lucky ones travelling in this carriage with me? Well at least I know I wont be alone, wonder who else will join us."

Toreadorfreddy

Liam looks briefly at Raole, then shakes his head and looks out the window.

Skaitleen03

Scarlet remembered an earlier encounter with the antro cat and jumped to the floor.She laid there avoiding Mira and hoping that she wouldnt mind her being there.

Paradox.XXIV

The rabbit regained some composure and looks at the two anthros sitting on either of his sides. Both were silent, and so did Hugh.

HolyTraitor

Illadoce was just sitting there, completely silent, with his stupidly heavy bags by his side. He was looking down, not wanting to make any eye contact with anyone, really.

YandereTsun

Momo walked to Sarah. "Would it be alright for me to come along?" She asked, smiling.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"I'm sure it'd be fine, it's probably only going to be me, Sarah, and Zoe anyway, why not have a fourth?" Dark says, smiling back.
Sarah looks up at Dark, then at Momo, then gets a big smile. "Yeah, Momo, come with us!"

Rakgnarok

Fionn looks away from his lap for a moment, noticing the silence that fell upon the small group, feeling guilty for the silence he tries to start up a conversation, "So, uh, I don't recall seeing you guys load any luggage on the carriage, do you guys travel light or perhaps I simply was too distracted to notice you loading your luggage on the carriage?" He asks shyly for the sake of convesation.
Xil yawns and stretches his arms and legs as he wakes up, he gets up and looks around for a moment only to realize everyone is already getting on the carriages, he instantly shoots a pissed off glare at Zoe for not waking him up.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Well Wisp has some things," Mira said, motioning to the bags tucked away by the dragon anthro. "And I prefer to live off of the land. I'd say I'm rather good at finding edible things wherever I am."
June noticed that two of the carriages now appeared fully loaded, and realized it was time to start loading up the food and water. She grabbed two bags and a tank of water, then brought them over to Wisp's carriage. "Since you were the first fully loaded, you get a water tank," she said as she dropped them off. She then did the same for Sub's carriage, and waited to see what would be the next fully loaded one.

Are You Freddy For Ready

After June and Zoe's handshake ended without any words, Zoe started making her way to where Dark and Sarah were. She noticed the tiger's pissed off glare. Whoops, I guess I forgot. she thought, shrugging and continuing to walk.

Paradox.XXIV

"And we have to make some room for... this!" Hugh said, placing the water tank under his seat. He smiled at Mira, Fionn and Wisp. He continued the conversation: "Also, since the very beginning of this adventure, I had nothing on me back in Hideston's forest, and I prefer traveling light indeed. I'm not as good as you are, Mira, though."
The rabbit frowned a bit, remembering the succulent meal Mira had cooked for the group the previous week. A light smile appeared on his face.

Rakgnarok

"Oh, well, I dont really know much about traveling and living off the land, i actually had some luggage when i got here to Vile Root but it kinda got lost when things got a little crazy, right when i met you guys actually!" The wolf adds.
Xil starts looking around the carriages, "Hey kitten, where you at?" He yells out as he walks by the carriages."

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira heard Xil's voice, and leaned out the side of the carriage. "Sorry Xil, this one's full!" she called back to the tiger. She then ducked back into the carriage. "Sorry to hear that you lost your stuff. "We'll see about getting you something to make up for it, okay?"

Rakgnarok

"Oh! Well, thats a really nice offer but, it really wasn't your fault, you don't have get me anything." Fionn ansers to Mira.
Xil lowers his ears slighthly and starts mumbling, he takes a glance at the carriage farthest back and spots liam on it, mumbling even more after that, he looks at the second last carriage and looks arounda bit, spotting FIraas and Jack, "Hey you two, wanna ride with me?" He asks them both.

Paradox.XXIV

"We insist, if you need anything I'd be glad to help you find something nice when we get to Harknest!" Hugh cheered. "The little child, hm, Sarah's her name, told me it was a city full of Cat anthros! I'm sure they will have fine tailors if we need warmer clothes or something..." He added, holding his shoulders. Hugh's fingers finally brushed over his left arm and felt the bandage. "Oh?" he said softly to himself.

YandereTsun

Yumo entered the carriage where Raole and Liam were.
Momo nodded, with a smile. "Alright, thank you," she said.

Rakgnarok

Fionn looks at both of them and smiles gently, he stares at Hugh for a moment as the rabbit does a gesture, "Hugh? is something wrong?"

Sp3ctr3EX

"Oh look, a new arrival." Raole says as he watches Yumo enter. "Hello there, young man, I dont believe we have met before."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Well, ladies first," Dark says, opening the carriage's gate and letting the two in. Sarah walked into the carriage and sat on the left side.
Zoe walks past Xil on her way to where Dark and Sarah were. Having noticed his disappointment when Mira saying her carriage was full, she concluded that Xil fancied her a bit.

Donotdiddlekids

"Sure!", Jack replies, as both anthros walk over to Xil.

Rakgnarok

"Guess we're sitting with that guy, doesn't seem like there's much space in the other carriages." Xil says as he walks over to the 4th carriage, he opens the door, "Hey, hope you don't mind but we're ridin' with ya." Xil says to illadoce as he waits for jack and Firaas to get on the carriage.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

June noticed Xil and the siblings get into the other carriage and smiled. She picked up the last tank of water and two bags of food, and walked it over. "Here you go guys, you get the last tank of water," she said as she put them inside the carriage. She then delivered the remaining bags of food to the other ones.

Donotdiddlekids

Jack and Firaas get in, nodding at June when she brings the supplies.

PBEgaming

May enters Raole's and Liam's carriage. "You mind if I join you?" May asks.

Sp3ctr3EX

"May! Of course." Raole said surprised as he saw May enter. "What took you so long?" He asked in a mocking tone. "I thought you were going to give us a challenge back there."

Rakgnarok

Xil nods at june "Oh, right, heh, forgot about those, I don't usually need that kind of stuff since I can easily live off the land." He says proudly.

PBEgaming

"Must've worked, given how fast you all got here." May said.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

June took one last look around to make sure everyone had boarded, then walked up to a random carriage- It happened to be Zoe's. "Room for one more?" she asked.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Yeah! There's room right next to me!" Sarah says in her usual manner. There was, indeed, room next to Sarah, who was sitting next to her sister on the right side of the carriages interior from where June was looking.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

June looked to Zoe, obviously asking for permission from a higher authority than Sarah. Sarah was, after all, just a child, and children shouldn't be allowed to make important decisions for a multiple day trip.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Zoe simply smiled, and nodded at her, knowing that having June in her carriage would allow her to observe her much easier. And she also found her a bit interesting as she has never been able to talk to a Coalition mage due to her allegiance to the Swordsmen and that whenever she has met one it was usually while they were hunting them.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Thank you," June said, and climbed into the carriage. She sat down beside Sarah, and gave the little girl a smile. "So, what's your relation to the group?" she asked to none of the people in the carriage in particular.
One of the carriage drivers walked up to the head of the caravan. "I think that's all of them loaded now. Shall we head out, ma'am?"
"Took them long enough," the lizard said, then mounted the horse at the front of the first carriage, then called out "Group to Harknest departing now!"
Hearing that, the other carriage drivers mounted up. The five carriages slowly started to pull out of the paddock and into the streets of Vile Root.
Mira's tail swished excitedly, and her eyes lit up with an almost childlike glee.

Rakgnarok

"Oh! We're moving, i guess its time to go to Harknest, how long do you think it will take?" Fionn asks as the carriage starts moving.
Xil leans back on his seat, "Huh, this is kinda boring, you guys got any interesting stories?" He asks as he quickly gets bored with the carriage ride.

TheOneTrueCardinal

Sub took out his map to see how far Harknest is, he sighed a bit after spotting Harknest on the map, he rolled it and put it back in his pockets.
"Well, this is clearly gonna be one long uneventful trip (LAND REAPER *shot*), any of you guys got any ideas on what to do while we wait?? Games?? Stories?? Or whatever you might have??" Sub asked his carriage mates.

Donotdiddlekids

Jack nods, and clears his throat.
"Well, erm, we did meet this couple out in the middle of nowhere one time. They were... pretty, "off, I'll say.", Jack explained, as Firaas leans back in her seat.
Alexis shakes her head.
"Hmm, don't know what I haven't told you guys yet...", Max said.

Bed head zed

"Well... Other than a story about some ruins me and my friends found, I don't think I have anything really interesting." Falaos says.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Well, we just joined today really. In fact, we were sent from Harknest to deliver a message to Conn- I mean Dark. And, let me just say, that was quite the venture," Zoe says, remembering their sighting of a leg floating in the water.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

Mira thought for a moment. "Depending on how fast we move, I'd say somewhere from four to six days. Kinda also depends on how often we stop, and how long we travel for per day and all that."
June raised an eyebrow slightly, but didn't say anything about the cutoff. "Well, I met Mira about yesterday, and... Kind of kidnapped her I guess," she said jokingly. "We became fast friends though, and she taught me more about my abilities than I think I've ever learned with The Coalition."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Ah, so you're a mage as well, then?" Zoe asks. Sarah had gone back to drawing, not caring about the carriage's movement making it harder to draw. Dark looked out the window, not listening to Zoe and June's conversation.
He was thinking of his cousin's death.

Rakgnarok

"Oh.. Well, what should we do in the mean time?.." Fionn asks shyly.
"Huh? Did they give ya any trouble?" Xil asks clearly interested.

Toreadorfreddy

Liam settled in, prepared for a long trip.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Oh... Well, last time I was on a carriage was a lot of years ago, but my brother and I used to play games whenever we rode in one. I guess it'd be silly and childish to try to play them now though," Mira said, a little bit of sadness creeping into her primarily nostalgic expression.
"Yes," June replied. "A lesser sp- A Mystery mage, I guess," she started then corrected. "It's odd to think that there are so many Elements, not just six."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Aye, I never understood why the coalition thought there were only six," Zoe says. "Though, I guess depending on what you're taught, either opinion could seem weird to the other party." she adds.

Donotdiddlekids

"Well, at the end of our experience with them, yeah. Mostly because we spent a few days with them while they followed us. When we were in a forest, we had set up a camp, and then it turns out they're criminals. And they want to kill us to silence us.", Jack replied. "First time I killed someone, and hopefully the last."

TheOneTrueCardinal

"Well, I got nothing I can think of at the moment." He used metal sense to see where the lighters are, he noticed one on his carriage and levitated it to his hand.

Donotdiddlekids

Max looked over his bow while in the carriage. Everything was in order, the carvings around the etching, the string, the... the now empty memory of what once was.
"Hey, anyone got a small sharp thing I can borrow for a sec?", Max asked to his carriage mates.

Rakgnarok

"Well, um, I don't have any siblings so I never really had someone to play games like that.. Maybe um.. Maybe we could play one? I mean, just to see what its like?.." Fionn asks to Mira.
"Yeah, thats why I'm always alert, even when I sleep I'm ready to kill." Xill adds.

TheOneTrueCardinal

Sub used the platinum he still had left and turned it into a miniature knife and held it out to Max "Here ya go." He said with a smile.

Donotdiddlekids

Max takes the knife, holds the bow at an angle, and starts carving away at the heart, trying to scratch it away.
"Hm. Best to forget.", Max said to himself, still scratching away.

Sp3ctr3EX

Raole looked between Liam, Yumo and May, wondering what to do to not get bored, so he asked the first question that came to his mind. "So... Who is this young man with purple eyes that I've never seen before, Is he an acquaintance of any of you?" He asked to see if either Liam or May would answer his question.

PBEgaming

May eased back into her chair, anticipating the long ride ahead. "To hell if I know, heh," May replied, "I've only ever seen a couple people with eyes any shade other than brown since I was born."

YandereTsun

Yumo looked at May. "Is that so?" He said, in a monotone voice.
Momo looked at Dark. Out of curiosity and proper management in reading minds,she looked into his thoughts.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Well it's sort of like how languages are formed, I guess," June thought aloud. "Entherstian makes sense to us, and Tralian makes sense to the others. We developed them at the same time and with the same information, but we interpreted it a different way. I don't think for even a moment that your model is the exact truth, but it's probably closer to it."
"Okay... Well... How about you two?" Mira asked to Wisp and Hugh. She was a little hesitant to try to explain the childhood games, and definitely wanted to make sure that everyone in the carriage had cleared her to first.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh was a bit busy taking off his bandage, leaving his cleaned shoulder to the open air. He sighed a bit, not really hearing what Mira said at first. "It's... What did you say?" He asked to Fionn and Mira at the same time.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Fionn asked if something was wrong, and I asked if you want to try out some of my childhood carriage games throughout the ride to Harknest," Mira said replied to Hugh. And expression of concern on her face about the bandage.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh smiled. "Oh, yes! Otherwise, the trip would feel longer than it already is... And..." Hugh turned to the right, his back now facing Fionn while he showed to Mira his shoulder. "Look, it's mostly healed and cleaned now...!"

TechnoXenoHolic

Wisp smiled a little, glad to see that Hugh's shoulder was healing up all right. "I don't mind, by the way," he said quietly. "If, ah... if you share your games, that is, Mira. I'll probably sit out, though."

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh suddenly turned to Wisp. "Thanks a lot, by the way, Wisp! Without you or Fionn's help, I'd have been in a bad state for much longer..." He blushed a bit, and brushed his shoulder again.

TechnoXenoHolic

Wisp smiled a little wider and ducked his head. "You're welcome," he said, shuffling his wings a bit. "Really."

Are You Freddy For Ready

"Yeah, and languages are always having changes," Zoe says. She pauses for a bit. "Hey, do you... mind if I ask you something a bit personal, June?"
Momo's reading of Dark's mind would have her learn of Dark and Alicia's close family relationship, and how her death had impacted Dark. She would see a mix of memories that Dark was recounting, some of these being moments of happiness, sadness, and a mix of the two, all leading into the moment when Zoe had told him of her death. Momo would also, though less importantly, learn of Dark's actual name, as people would refer to him as Connor in these memories.

TheSecondEdgeOfTheBlade

"Okay, well... Since you're all okay with it," Mira started, then took a deep breath. "The first is a game that you play with your hands. You and a partner start with your hands up in a neutral position, like so." the cat held up her hands, palms facing Hugh and Fionn. "Then, you take turns moving them. You can only move one finger at a time, and you can only stop when the end is on one of the joints of your or the other person's fingers. You win when your partner can't move any of their fingers anymore."
"Oh, go ahead. I'll just not answer if it gets too deep," June replied, leaning back in her seat.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh nodded cheerfully at Wisp before looking at Mira's paws with wide eyes. "Oh my, that looks fun..." He said in a bit of surprise, trying to take in the info Mira just gave them. He thought that game would be fun, but he had no idea how to work properly to unable someone's fingers to move.

Are You Freddy For Ready

"What's it like in the Coalition?" Zoe asks. "I've heard about them, but no more than just their element naming system and their, well, behavior, but I've never heard about what it's like to be in it, and so I've grown curious."

YandereTsun

Momo's eyes grew wide in shock, as she stared at Dark. It only did not make her feel sad for Dark, but it also reminded her of the same case that she's been in when she found out about her cousin's death. "Uh..." she muttered as she tried to speak, but she just closed her mouth afterwards due to her loss of words.

Are You Freddy For Ready

Dark didn't notice Momo's attempt at speaking as he had zoned out of the world around him, not hearing anything, recounting memories of the past.

YandereTsun

Momo just looked down, not wanting to interrupt his remembering. She closed her eyes, as she continued to read his memories, remaining silent.

Rakgnarok

Fionn smiles upon hearing Hugh is feeling better, "I really didn't do anything." he says quietly as he blushes slightly, he clears his throat very quietly and turns to Mira, he holds his left hand up to Mira's Right hand his palm facing Mira's, "Like this?" He asks.

Paradox.XXIV

Hugh smiled at the two and leaned back, letting the two anthros as much space as they wanted to play over him and Scarlet. "I'll see you two have the first round..." he giggled and observed.

Sp3ctr3EX

Raole felt uneasy at May and Yumo's interaction. "It seems they don't like each other much at first impressions." He thought before changing the subject to something else. "Well, hm... How about if we told stories? Yeah that seems like a good idea to pass the time. I could tell you so many stories of my adventures and misadventures but I think you guys would get bored quickly, so maybe... Hm..." Raole looked at Liam. "Liam. I am sure you have some nice stories of your adventures to tell since you have been in a group that big, do you mind sharing them?" He asks Liam.

Toreadorfreddy

"Well, I stopped a siege once," Liam said to Raole, "Would you like to hear that one?"

Sp3ctr3EX

"Oh sounds interesting, yes please." Raole said very excited.

Bed head zed

Falaos watched Max scratch the heart away. "Hey... Are you gonna be okay?" He asked, attempting to comfort him.

Toreadorfreddy

"Well, have you heard of the Cult of Berko?" Liam asked, "Cause it was their siege I stopped."

Sp3ctr3EX

"Why yes, indeed I have Liam, those lunatics who call themselves a cult." Raole said. "You managed to stop their siege? Good man you are. How did you manage that?" He asked.

Donotdiddlekids

Max looks at Falaos, stopping for a bit.
"Yeah. I'll be alright.", Max said, before turning back to scratching.

Bed head zed

Falaos continues to watch Max. "You know, we could always go back to Barkson to visit her." He says.

Donotdiddlekids

"Later on, maybe. But otherwise, I'm just gonna let her have her time to move on, and have her peace. After all, I do attract a lot of unwanted attention, right?", Max asked, still scratching. He was almost done.

Toreadorfreddy

"Well, first of all, they weren't expecting an Earth mage to be there," Liam said, not about to reveal what he was to a stranger, "and second, they weren't expecting me to be able to make Golems."

Bed head zed

"Yeah..." Falaos replied. "Christa was never really into adventuring or fighting." He adds.

Sp3ctr3EX

"Whoa. You can make golems? They must have gotten a surprise when that happened." Raole said to Liam.

TheOneTrueCardinal

Sub de-attached the blade and the hilt. He took out the old oil lighter that was in and replaced it with the new lighter, he's tinkering it to make the button work on the new one.

Donotdiddlekids

"Yup. Meanwhile, nearly every place I go, there's either a bandit to kill or someone wants my head because I looked at them funny.", Max added. "Not really easy having a lady when you have to watch your own back, front, head, feet, and watch her back too."

PBEgaming

"Golems? Jeez, you guys can do a lot of cool stuff..." May said with a tone of simultaneous excitement and minor disappointment in her voice. "So, go on, how'd this battle go?"
