One Hour Later...

Post by High Elf Seri »

After everyone had eaten and prepared to travel, the horses were saddled, the carriage's horses hitched, and bags packed. Seri came waddling out of the inn and into her carriage, eager to be on with the journey. Estas directed the mercenaries, and everyone was arranged at the same points they had been the day before. Orion took the rear, Estas and Sairina flanked either side of the carriage, while Phaeton and Luria rode out in front. Kitsa sat on top of the carriage to get a better vantage point, since she didn't ride. Valkyria had been invited to ride Seri's horse in Lanir's place, so she could lead the group. Meanwhile, Lanir would join Kitsa atop the carriage. Y'ezela would drive again, and Air would likely sit up in the seat with her, however, the two girls hadn't made their appearances yet.

Reason: Forgot that Lanir was riding Ilavirin (Seri's horse), so I moved him to the top of the carriage with Kitsa.

While the rest of the group were mounting their horses and taking position, Y'ezela hurried out with her traveling gear. She had dressed in a fresh outfit, this one being a blouse and pair of breeches as opposed to her usual flowy garb. Aside from that, the half-elf had a blush on her cheeks that anyone could see, even with her dark complexion. Throwing her pack under the seat of the carriage, she scrambled up into the seat and mumbled an apology to Estas.

Orion was quiet as they came out of the inn. Valkyria was right. Though the air was calm, he could feel the tension. Something had to give soon. Lossely securing his bow to the side of his saddle, Orion mounted and hefted up his quiver onto his back. From a short distance, he watched Kitsa pull herself up. As much as it was ineffective for combat, he wished she could ride with him, so that he could shield her from the wind when it came.

Air followed Y'ezela out, quickly stowing her backpack under the seat like her sister and taking up a seat beside her. She wasn't as apologetic to Estas as Ez was, but she wasn't discourteous either. She gave him a soft nod of acknowledgment and sat calmly waiting for the others to get the show on the road.

Valkyria took up Seri's horse, as offered. While she wasn't comfortable riding an animal through a sandstorm she knew that she had to keep in front of the group to keep them moving in the right direction. "Alright, folks, keep your eyes on me. I'd feel a lot better if we had a life-line extended from the carriage to the single horses to make sure that we don't lose anyone but as long as we go slow we shouldn't lose sight of each other. Visibility in a sandstorm can get pretty harsh. Anyone who has hoods or scarves, cover your face as much as you can with them." When everyone complied with what she said, the thief lead them out of Blade and into the desert. She had mentally mapped the course last night, first they'd head as far along the road as possible then cut to the southeast and follow the underground river as far as the oasis. It was a simple task when one wasn't facing the brutal fury of a sandstorm, but for someone of Valkyria's prowess, she'd guide them safely to their destination, albeit a little weather beaten.

Re: Onward into the Storm

Post by Estas the High Elf »

The group had rode for nearly an hour, putting Blade behind them. Estas was nervous about leaving the main road, and with his reservations about Valkyria, he didn't fully trust her guidance. He had to remind himself of her affection for her newfound siblings though, lest he lose sight to his paranoia. The winds had been slowly rising as they rode, but now the gusts were coming harder. The high elf was protected from the east wind by the wagon, but he saw the gusts of sand kicking up around them. Giving his horse a little encouragement, he rode forward a few paces to look beyond the wagon. A wall of sand was the only thing that could be seen to their east, some distance away. It was eerie and terrifying, but the high elf easily kept his fear in check.

"We should make our final preparations for the storm," he spoke loudly to the group. "Y'ezela, stop the wagon so Kitsa and Lanir can get inside. Sairina, come around to this side."

At Estas's order, Y'ezela stopped the team drawing the carriage. The horses obeyed, but they stomped anxiously. The half-elf understood exactly how they were feeling; she shivered as she saw the wall of sand coming towards them. Her mother was a Flaim native, and they often traveled through the country, but they had always stayed in cities during the sandstorms, locked away in inns. Y'ezela had only glimpsed the storms. While they waited for Lanir and Kitsa to move, Yezela borrowed some of Air's guaze and wrapped it around her face, covering her mouth and nose.

Kitsa had watch the storm building in the east with a sense of awe and intimidation. The weather of the desert was new and incredible to her, and it was exciting. She could almost feel the chaos Sylph and Gnome had been thrown in, just as Valkyria warned. "Come along, Lanir," Kitsa said to the half-elf sitting atop the carriage with her, and she climbed down the back. As she touched the ground, she gave a smile of assurance to Orion before heading around to the side of the carriage.

Sairina, being on the west side, had seen the storm building, and she was terrified. The priestess was wrapped in a cloak with a silk scarf wrapped around her mouth and nose to keep the sand out. Her hands and knees were shaking, so when she heard Estas's order, she quickly moved over to his side the wagon and guided Aeru between the carriage and Estas, the safest place she felt she could be.

Orion watched the others prepare to take protection stony-faced. He knew that, like the others, he was resigned to that terrible wall of sand. The only thing he could really do to prepare himself was to push all of his hair into his coat and close it tightly around his neck. The air would soon be filled with fine grains of earth, something he was not looking forward to breathing in. Never before in his life had he felt as though he would have to do battle with the very world around him.

Lanir had stared at the sand storm as it build. It was getting bigger the more they traveled to the east! The elf was in shocked for a moment, but he was suddenly knocked out of it as the carriage stop and he heard Estas called out some orders. He nodded and looked at Kista, who had already climbed off the top of the carriage, and quickly followed after her.

Kitsa knocked on the door of the carriage as warning to Seri, then opened the door. She found the high elf mother-to-be sitting on the bench seat at the end of the carriage. The seat across from her was full of packages and a wicker bassinet, which Mirael obvious bought for her. Seri even had her legs propped up on the other seat. There was room beside Seri for both Kitsa and Lanir, but it would be a tight squeeze. "Excuse me, Seri, but we must sit in here," Kitsa said.

"Oh yes, of course," Seri said, putting her feet back down on the floorboards. She leaned forward to look out the door and her emerald green eyes widened in wonder. "Oh my, is that a sandstorm?"

"Yes," Kitsa replied, then pulled herself into the carriage. The quarter-elf squeezed passed Seri and the packages, avoiding touching the high elf as much as possible, and with much manuevering, she sat down beside Seri on the far side of the carriage. The high elf would sit in the middle while Lanir would be on the other side. "Hurry in, Lanir," Kitsa said. The storm was growing closer with each passing moment.

Orion was happy Kitsa was safe, but the thoughts in his head couldn't help but turn to him and his horse. His mare had never gone through something like this. Could she take it? No one would know until it hit. Orion moved up to the edge of the carriage. Visibility would become weak soon. Perhaps Estas was wise to place him, a better shaman, in the back, since, if Orion got lost, he could probably find his way back to them if the spirits came to his aid. Even then, Orion had no interest in tempting fate.

Lanir watched as Kitsa squeezed herself through the packages and the high elf. He sigh as she pulled himself up on the carriage and did the same thing. A light pink tint and a small nervous smile came on his face as he did so. The half elf sat down by Kitsa and sigh. The place he was sitting in was very uncomfortable, but he could deal with it.
