Upon hearing the bear again, she quietly let out a few keidran curses, probably loud enough for someone else to hear though.Phaing wrote: ↑Tue Aug 15, 2017 5:01 pmYou have covered a few miles when you hear the sound of small trees being splintered behind you, and the bellow of the Bear again, far behind you.
Rita and Annaria are riding together, and Rita huffs a little impatiently while the adults are talking. "They won't let me to anything important." She does not show any grumpiness or frustration to Sylvi or Raimius, they have enough to worry about, but venting a little with Annaria seems safe enough. "What about you? I know this isn't your kind of forest, but you are a Fox, the cleverest of all Keidran, right? I bet you can get used to it faster than they think. Maybe we can go scouting ahead and find a short-cut to the lake?"
After Rita brings up the idea of scouting, she ponders the idea for a moment. "We probably could..." She paused for a moment, looking back in the direction of where they heard the roar. "But I kind of don't want to get separated with that thing following us. I know you want to do something exciting, but maybe not when we know something that can kill us is nearby. Especially since I stick out like an orange in a pile of apples." With all the clothing she's wearing, the orange fur on her head, and the snow would probably make it difficult to stay out of sight if anything does find them if they're scouting.
(Also, I will say Anaraia probably has little experience with forests as of now because looking at the map the fox territory is forest-free, probably the only experience she has is running away at the beginning of her adventure from the town.)
"<No>" She said without hesitation, staring directly at Sylvi. "<I don't want to lose anyone else. I just can't stand by while more people I care about die.>" She is trying to stay calm-ish as well with Rita there. She takes a deep breath and sighs to calm down a bit more. "<You underestimate my power.>" She said while showing off her main blade. "<If the bear does find us, which hopefully it doesn't, the three of us fighting it...>" Since she never seen Rita fight, Anaraia assumes she doesn't "<...will have a better chance of beating it. It'll be like what some of the hunters did back home.>"The Rookie wrote: ↑Sun Aug 20, 2017 2:19 pm“<Anaraia, Raimius and I are going to lag behind in case the beast tries to follow us out. You keep going no matter what you hear, alright? Don’t stop, don’t hide and don’t come back looking for us, alright?>” Sylvi is trying her best not to sound terrified, but there’s a tremble in her Kiedran she hoped Rita won’t be able to distinguish from her normal speech.
Her eyes pass over to the daggers and she visibly winces “<They won’t do anything, alright, hon? You can’t get too close to these things; at least not without spear or pike of some sort...>”
"Yes, lots of noise, keep bear away from us, now can we keep going?"
