And grab her she does. Rita may not cry out, but when the person grabs her tail she lets out a quick "yip" and freezes. If she wasn't being pulled herself she may have just stood there holding Rita. The pulling didn't help either.

Once she is let go of, she starts rubbing her tail and moves away, speaking quickly with a quivering voice. "Nononono, don't grab tails, especially don't pull it." She turns around to look at whoever did it. "It's not a handle and feels very unpleasant when grabbed."
The Convict that pulled you back in is a bit larger and a little less scruffy-looking than the rest of them, and has a scar that runs from his left cheek to the chin. His lips didn't heal exactly right, so it can be hard to make out exactly what he says. "Sorry." And once he is sure he has both girls safely inside, he adds. "Clint."

Whatever that last word means will have to wait. Raimius shoulders him aside and grabs Rita, holding her up high to look her over and made certain she is alright. He isn't happy, and an instant later he sets her down on a bench and with a furious grimace he poked her in the nose and orders her to "Stay!"
Just that.
She looks ready to burst into tears when he turns away and pets Annaria's shoulder on his way to the window. "Good job, thank you."

Once she feels the cold brush of stone against her rear, she immediately spins around and is out the window in a flash. Leaping several feet and attempting to grab the line in flight than risk being dragged back through the window while attempting to slowly meander across at her usual pace.
Raimius takes one look and squeezes back out through the bars. He has one hand on a bar and one hand on the rope as far out as he can reach. "That's it, keep coming, one at a time. Don't stop, and do NOT look back."
Sylvi can see that he is looking past her, at the cell she just left. He's made a mask of his face, no emotions show aside from a very intense stare.
"You just keep your grip on that rope, okay?"

As she swings her legs up around the rope, you can see a moment of hesitation in Sylvi’s movements. She dangles; clung to the rope with all her strength afraid she’ll tumble down to certain death below if she so much as loosened her grip.
It’s not until she hears Raimius’ cool calm encouragement that she begins to move again. Her eyes are forced as tightly shut as they can be, but she can be seen nodding before putting one hand in front of the other.

Seems like we’ll be adding heights to our list of known fears.

After moving a few meters along the rope Sylv builds up enough courage to finally open her eyes a brief moment, looking up towards Raimius, but boy was that a mistake.

The way Raimius was looking past her and toward the looming threat gave the impression that she mightn’t have covered as much ground as she once thought, and could expect to dragged back by her tail at any moment...

Naturally, she panics. She curls her tail up as close to her body as she could and begins to move at double her previous pace. Her eyes closed shut once again, and her breathing short and ragged. She’d likely have charge head long into the stone work if she hadn’t felt Raimius’ hand brush against the top of her head; a sensation that caused her to stop and wince a moment expecting the worst, only for her to begin frantically gripping for his arm and pulling herself up, or more accurately climbing up along his forearm.

Once she’s back on two feet, the emotionally exhausted she wolf buries her face deep into her partner’s chest, quietly sobbing for only a moment before regaining her composure. She mutters something, whilst still nuzzled in his arms, a mixture of relief and sass lacing each work. “Promise me we won’t be doing that again...” a deep sigh and a slight chuckle follow as she lingered just a moment longer.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

She glares at the man holding her tail in front and stroking it like an injured cat. He may be big, but she is not happy. She doesn't even recognize what the last thing he said was. her attention is taken elsewhere after a second or two of glaring.

She looks at Raimius to speak. "It was the least I could do, especially since we can't just let anyone die." She sees the look on Rita's face and makes her way over to her and sits down next to her.

"Hey, don't worry about him being tough." She said, trying to cheer her up. "He's just trying to protect you like he always does. Just try to be a little more careful, especially with evil birds around. I don't want to lose anyone either." And to try to add to her goal, she whispers. "And between you and me, that trick did look pretty cool though."

Once Silvi makes it back across she stands up and tries to address everyone. "So how are we going to escape, because I surely don't want to spend the rest of my life here."

Raimius holds Sylvi as tight and as close as he possibly can, without harming her. "I promise. When we leave this damn place, we are going out the Front door!"
It is an old tag-line from the tales of heroic days of old. It would be corny in any other circumstances, but he is saying the same thing that a knight would say to a bad of brigands waiting outside an Inn.

"Meh, yer freaking welcome!"
He stalks off and a couple of other men come up to look you and Rita over. "Y'all mind telling us what you are doing in this part of the world, and what is going on out there... out there in the world?"

Rita is grouchy and snaps out her words the same way Raimius does when he is mad. "You'll find out from the grown-ups. Got any water?"

"It did?" She is amazed, and hugs Annaria. "Thanks for saying so, but I almost muffed things up real bad, didn't I?"
Rita is mad, at herself, and still shaking a little. "Did you see that? Sylvi did a much better job than I did, and she's twice as frightened as I was!" She looks Annaria in the eyes. "Yeah, I was scared, so I tried to show off. Its something I used to do back at the Pal... the old home. Bluster makes people back off, sometimes."

"Yes, that is what I would like to know!" Raimius turns to the convicts. "You men have been here for days, you must have thought of something by now! My name is Raimius by the way, and these fine ladies are-" He starts to introduce everyone, but then he stops when the men start to turn away. "Alright, what the hell is wrong with you?"

"Couple things." Clint stalks back up to you, and faces Raimius directly. "First of all, it us the custom here for everyone to introduce themSELVES around here! It may not seem like much, but prisoners like us have few things we can call our own. Who and what we are is about the sum of it. And second, we can get out of here anytime we like, but we are lacking a couple of things! Weapons of course, the Guards that had 'em tried to fight and are all dead now. And one other thing; WINGS! I can't think of anything else that would allow us to stay ahead of those damned butcher-birds.
Other than that, things are just peachy!"
Clint turns to the girls; "Sorry ladies, but that's just the facts. Any chance of an Army patrol or a squad of Templars heading this way? That might take care of things, and all we can think of is to hold out until they arrive. Hey Fox, need a splint for that tail?"

While mildly comforting, I’m afraid Raimius’ words still come across as quite corny regardless. There’s chuckle from Sylvi as she pulls away from his grasp. “While I appreciate that.” she pauses as she leans back in and places a quick peck on Raimius’ cheek before taking a few steps back “I’m not sure this knightly valour suits you all that well, Sir Raimi.” There’s a sense of smugness to her expression, which quickly vanishes once Ana addresses the room.

Back to the situation at hand, I’m afraid.

“<Odd custom...> Sylvi mutters loudly enough for all to hear, as she folds her arms in a more stand offish stance toward the convict.

Sylvi, having already taken a sudden disliking towards Clint, firmly corrects being addressed as ‘Ladies’ from the group that had moments ago put such a high value on personal names. “Sylvi.” her tone harsh. “And no, I highly doubt they’d waste the man power from the frontlines.” neglecting the thought that these people mightn’t even know there’s a war being fought at all. “And if they did, I don’t intend to be around when they arrive.”

It’s about here her ears prick up, and she turns to Ana and seeing her tail in her arms. “<A splint for your tail? What happened?>” instantly dropping the tough girl act, replaced with the fussy parent she’s slowly been moulded into over the last few weeks. “<Come here. Let me see.>”

She shrugged at what Rita said about Silvi. "Maybe the fear helped her. People are different. Maybe try to save the showing off for... less deadly situations though. But..." She paused for a moment. "It's better than what I do when I'm scared, like hiding on a human filled ship without their knowledge, or jumping off the second floor of an inn." She slightly chuckled.

She straightened up her posture after being called a lady. Very few had called her that before.
"My name is Anaraia." She started with. "And lucky for us all we have weapons. And I'm hoping this..." She pulls out the oil. "Will help keep them away at least for a moment..." She stared at it for a moment, realizing she didn't have a key part in her plan and not noticing Rita had it earlier. "Did anyone bring over the lamp?"

((Aw damnit!
I thought I had done this days ago :oops:
Sorry, I'll do this quick and jump right on whatever you guys send my way... my very bad))

"Oh, I have the lamp!" Rita unhooks it, and is mildly surprised to find that it is still perfectly fine. She looks up at Clint and says in her best country drawl; "Got a lite?"

Clint takes the opportunity to leave, saying. "Got plenty of tapers. Fire is the one thing we have lots of, but not enough to heat this damn place!" Off he goes, grumbling and pushing men out of his way.

Rita sits next to Annaria and puts an arm around her. "Sometimes I forget that you are only a couple of years older than me. I mean, more grown up, I mean... you know. Anyway... are you laughing at me?" Rainius is doing his best NOT to, it is painfully obvious. "Whatever. Anyway, I am trying to say is that I like you, I respect you, and if your tail is hurting then lets get you healed up! Its only natural, and it would be a shame if you were distracted by anything at a time like this, even if its just a teeny hurt, aye?"

Half a dozen men are still standing around, watching this with some slight distaste from a couple of them... and a whole lot of puzzlement from every single one of them.

"Pardon me, but honestly folks, what exactly IS your story?"

"<Pulled!?>" Sylvi gasp; what depraved animal would do such a thing, she thought to herself. As her shock expression slowly subsided,it was promptly replaced with a glowering stare that shot between on the various brutes that watched from afar.

She soon goes back to fussing over the poor vixen's tail, giving an ice cold shoulder to the mob. "<They could have torn the bloody thing off; and the nerve one of the freaks trying grabbing at your waist in your moment of vulnerability. Do these savages have no sense of right or wrong?>". The way she was acting you'd think Ana's tail was bent at a 90 degree angle, but really it seemed quite alright for the most part.

It's here Sylvi starts going through her packs, looking for a bandage or numbing agent that could help. "<Hang on. I could mix something in a jiffy that'll fix you right up.>" she continues to fiddle through the packs as Rita and Raimius begin to comfort the girl in their own way.

Sylvi shoots up a finger to hush the prisoner. Her eyes never leaving her pouch. "Ah! Not a word from you till I'm done here. If I have to amputate, then there's going to be hell to pay." she looks up for a fraction of a second. "And stop looking at her tail! Didn't your mothers tell you not to ogle pretty girls? Turn around. All of you." She stares the half dozen down individually before she returns to rummaging, various Keidran curses ringing through the chamber as she goes.

Some so specific Ana may not be old enough to know what they mean yet, while others so vial even Raimius may cringe here or there.

She's not a happy wolfy, that's for sure.

"Good" She said. "Hopefully those things scared of fire. There isn't a lot of oil but hopefully it's enough to deter them if we throw both the oil and the lit lamp at them." She shrugged. "It's the best idea I have on escaping. They live up here in this frozen wasteland, hopefully they hate fire."

"I'm fine, really. It doesn't even hurt as much as it used to. Splinting it or bandaging it isn't going to do anything." She said, still trying to brush away Sylvi. "I'll have more important things to worry about once we start our escape."

She then addressed Sylvi's complaints in the same language "<He grabbed my waist to help pull me in. That's what I meant, the tail was not the focus of the pull. It's fine honestly, you don't need to do anything.>" She starts to move away from Sylvi so that hopefully she will stop trying to do whatever it is she's doing.

"<More people while escaping this is better. And if those things still go after us, we can use them as decoys, have the birds eat them instead of us.>"

"Anyways" She turned to face the men. "I'll keep my story a little short for now. I'm from the Ridge Tribe, traveled to and through human lands, met these folk, and now we're here." She didn't add details for safety reasons. "What the really important thing right now is that we're here and personally, I don't want to stay here. And that my tail isn't injured" Saying the last sentence towards Sylvi with the same impatience as before.
