Morning in the Mossian Forests

Post by Naclia »

Naclia woke up with a chill. She had slept soundly for the last few hours, too exhausted to care about the outside world. Now the elf bunched up her blankets around her shoulders and sat up in her bedding. Wil was up on watch, but no one else seemed to be awake yet. Fog snaked through the trees, making it a pale gray morning. It seemed late enough, and they had to make good use of the their time, so Naclia decided that she may as well wake every one else up. Turning to Talen next to her, she shook his shoulder, and spoke in a sing-song voice that might have been loud enough to wake the others, "Wakey wakey Talen."

To keep himself occupied during his watch, Wil had made conversation with several fairies in the area, telling them stories while keeping an earnest watch of the area. Other than the occasional passing herbivores and the feeling of a passing carnivore, the forest was quiet in the last hours of night and early morn. The fairies had left by the time Naclia awoke, having heard a great deal of Wil's stories so far, and had returned to their tree colonies to face the morning in all its splendor. While the bard kept the fire tended, the dampness in the air threatened to put out the small fire. With the exception of the human Talen, himself and Kima, there were none there that would use the fire to heat their food if it were meat based. With Naclia up, he expected the others would rise soon, and waited to start the day.

OOC: We didn't have a fire. It would have caught the attention of the soldiers.

The noise Naclia made was enough to draw Aiden out of his sleep. The common elf was near waking as it was. With a groan, he pushed himself up onto his hands and knees, then knelt and stretched his back. The ground was never kind to one's back, even an elf's. He wouldn't have minded sleeping a little longer, but they couldn't afford to waste time at this point. The ranger moved over to Eliamn and shook the elf maiden gently to wake her.

Eliamn had been lying on her side, her body in a loose fetal position to help her keep warm under the blanket, her hair spread over the bedding like flowing honey. Aiden's touch caused her to sigh and crack her eyes open as she twisted around to make eye contact with him. Like a flowerbud opening to sunlight, her eyes widened to seeming wakefulness as she looked up at him.

"{Good morning, Aiden,}" the elf shamaness greeted him in their native tongue, still lying supine over her bedding. She then rewarded him with a gentle smile. "{A dreary morning, is it not?}"

Aiden couldn't help but smile at Eliamn, even just waking she was beautiful. {"I suppose it is,"} he replied, slipping back into the elven tongue in response to her. {"I hope you rested enough, we must move on soon."}

Eli eased herself slowly into a sitting posture. {"Well enough now, though I will not be above dozing over the back of whoever I ride with later."} She gave a look around the stirring camp, self-consciously stroked some of her mussed golden hair behind one of her elongated ears and looked back to Aiden. {"I thought we still needed to figure out where to go next. Have you made a decision?"}

Aiden stood up and began to pack up his bedroll again. ("We'll go to that academy you learned about,") Aiden replied as he worked.

OOC: Posting for Talen. >.>

Talen awoke with a smile as he rolled over to see Naclia leaning over him. "Good morning," he said, then stretched.

"Morning handsome," she replied with a grin, then moved back to her bed and started to roll it up.

Talen blushed slightly at that comment, but then began to pack up his gear. As he rolled up his bed, he overheard Eli and Aiden talking in elven. "Umm...what are they saying?" he whispered to Naclia.

The female ranger glanced over at him as she finished rolling her own bed up. "Oh, um...Eli asked where we're going, and Aiden said that we're going to the academy that we found out about," she explained. Tossing a glance over her shoulder at Aiden and Eliamn, she spoke in elven, {"Hey guys! How about a little common tongue for the sake of the uninitiated?"}

Eliamn's ears drooped a bit at Naclia's request. To spare herself from making a weak or apologetic reply (why feel guilty for speaking one's native language?), she silently slid out of her bedding and started following Aiden's example of packing up her things, though she did not immediately pack up. Instead, she splashed some of her waterskin's content on a cloth to wash her face and she then took a comb out of her things to try and straighten out her hair. As she methodically killed snags and knots in her hair, she glanced down at herself. With her missing the bath the day before at the inn and with her changes of clothing having been worn more than a couple of times now without having been washed, Eli was starting to get worried about stinking bad.

"Are we going to come across any streams on our way to the mage school?" The elven shamaness asked Wilhelm hopefully.

Kima got up with a start, rolling around on the ground until she was on her feet. Her eyes surveyed the group quickly, noting what each were doing. It seemed that she woke up in time as they were getting ready to go. Her stomach hurt out of hunger, wanting to eat. On all fours she rushed Aiden, jumping up on him and planting a kiss on his lips as a morning greeting. "Aiden!" she greeted him by saying his name.

Wil looked back when Eliamn approached him. "Yes, there is a stream in the direction we're heading. Good morning, by the way." Wilhelm added the last part almost jadedly, since no pleasantries were spoken to him before inquiring about the stream. "It is approximately half a day there by horseback."

Aiden nearly toppled over, but steadied himself; after traveling with Kima so long, he was getting accustomed to her clingyness. "Good morning, Kima," he said, almost defeatedly, then tried to pry the human girl off him and set her back on the ground. "Let's get ready to go," he told her, then turned toward the dozing centaur; "Rylan! Time to wake up."

Eliamn nodded her thanks to Wil, still running the wooden comb through her blonde hair. "Good morning to you as well," she replied, trying to force some cheer in her voice. Smiling is contagious, right?

The centaur awoke with a start when his name broke through his slumber. He had slept in a little later after taking a watch shift. Rylan squared his feet on the ground--like a horse, he slept standing up, usually with a hoof propped up to rest the leg. "I'm awake," he said, shaking his head. He stretched his arms out in front of himself, gave his coat a shake, and flicked his tail. "How long until we leave?" he asked Aiden, then a yawn cracked his jaws.

Kima resented getting put back on the ground, but she didn't show it more than a small pout. Nipping at her shoulders, the young wild girl sighed in relief as the itch disappeared after a few nips and bites. When she was finished satisfying her itch, Kima waited impatiently for the group to become more active.
