Her words did come across as quite harsh. It seemed that the animi had their own prejudices against humans like they did to them. "Actually, Zyliria, I feel like that's the exact reason we should depend on one another." He put a hand on his daughters head and stroked her hair soothingly. "To keep hold of those dear to us, and those who we can trust." He looked over at Zyliria, "and you're one of those people Zyliria. You've more than proved to me that you're more than trustworthy around Caitlyn." He smiled at her, "if anything ever happens to me, I want you to watch over my daughter."

Zyliria reluctantly rolled over to face Christopher. “Fine,” she said, abruptly. “You’re right. We’re a team, we should work together. But...be careful with Faelians.” Zyliria urged. She looked over at Caitlyn, smiling tenderly at the sleeping girl. “I will,” she said, after a moment’s pause. “She’s a strong girl, to have survived what she has survived. I only hope there’s nothing too bad going on after she touched that scale,” said Zyliria. She sighed for a moment, looking at the fire meditatively, before giving Christopher a final glance. “Well, I’m going to try to get some sleep,” she said, before rolling back over to face the forest, her eyes shutting.

Christopher smiled, and sighed happily. "Have a nice nights rest Zyliria." He got up, and picked up the blanket from where she'd tossed it away. "The offer still stands by the way," he held out the blanket to her, and set it down next to her neatly in case she wanted a place to sleep off of the dirt. He walked over back to his horse.

"Hey girl," Christopher said, holding the horse's face, and stroking it's mane. The horse snorted in response, and nudged His shoulder. Christopher chuckled, and reached into the pack on the side of the saddle. He brought out an apple for her, and she ate it out of his hand. He smiled, and went back over to the log, and sat there, looking at the fire, and then at his daughter.

Dawn found Zyliria awake, having taken over the watch several hours into the night. Christopher and Caitlyn were still asleep By the forest edge. Zyliria watched them for a moment, her ears listening carefully for the sounds of movement amongst the trees. It was still fairly dark and, although her vision was superior to that of the average human, she would still hear a visitor long before she would hear it. She looked down the road to Faela, and thought about what they were to do once they finally entered the city. Caitlyn had told her, among many things over their daylong journey, the reason she and her father wished to go to Faela. There, they expected to find someone who would understand more about the state Caitlyn was now in having touched the dragon scale. Zyliria turned to look back at the sleeping Caitlyn.

Caitlyn opened her eyes. The light of the rising sun illuminating the cave with a dull glow. She turned slightly, her huge head rolling over slightly, before sliding further back into the cave, to where the garish glare of the sun would not bother her. Her tail moved smoothly, feeling the path she would take before she took it, as she gently retreated further into the narrow cave.

Caitlyn opened her eyes. The first light of dawn made the world dimly visible. A few feet away, the fire burned quietly to one side. She looked up to see Zyliria awake, watching her with apparent unease. “Good morning, Zyliria,” she said, stretching and sitting up, still leaning against the tree. “No disturbances, I hope?” Zyliria shook her head quietly, and turned away from her, having been caught staring.

Having heard the quieted whispers of his daughter and Zyliria having a morning chat. Slowly, he sat up, and stretched his arms out to either side, before rubbing his drowsiness from his eyes. The exchange between Christopher and Zyliria when they traded eachother's post was very peaceful, and almost a pleasant interaction between the two of them.

The morning dew covered the ground in a layer of cold dampness, but the cloak wrapped around Caitlyn had kept her warm and dry. That's all that mattered to the father. That his daughter was comfortable, and safe. A couple of pine needles had fallen into Zyliria's and Caitlyn's hair.

"Good morning you two," Christopher yawned. He started picking the pine needles out of his daughter's hair, "I do hope you slept well Caitlyn. And thanks for taking second watch Zyliria." His hands were moving as if on auto pilot. He subconsciously went over to Zyliria, and started picking out some pine needles, but caught himself, and stopped before he would anger her. He moved away quickly, and brushed a hand through his hair nervously, not wanting to say anything that might make his situation worse.

Both of the girls turned to face Christopher, looking surprised to see him awake. “Morning,” Caitlyn yawned back at him, smiling affectionately as her father picked needles out of her hair. “I slept well, I think,” she said, rolling away from her father to stand up, stretching herself as she rose to her feet. She frowned, trying to remember. She could remember a dream, but it was very, very faint. There had been light, and rocks...but she could not remember much else. “How was your sleep?” she asked.

Zyliria bared her teeth slightly as Christopher approached her, a move far less foreboding coming from the woman than from her in her wolf form, and she brushed the needles out of her own hair quickly. “Watch was fine,” Zyliria responded. “Uneventful,” She rose swiftly. “We should get moving, now that the gates to Faela should be open at last. I don’t know where to go once we get in the city, I don’t really know who will be able to help you” She said, her tone level, but her eyes betraying some fondness. She gestured towards the horse. “You get to ride today,” she said, evenly.

"That sounds fair," Christopher said, smiling nervously at the woman. He noticed that here eyes and tone were each sending different messages, as if she was giving off mixed signals. There was something about Zyliria that made her seem very high strung. He wondered if she ever relaxed and how she did so. When she bared her teeth, he knew she wasn't messing around. Human form or wolf form, the message still came across clearly.

"Let's just wait here for a while and have breakfast. Day lights not going anywhere any time soon, and neither is Faela. Let's just take our time for today," he went over to his horse, and instead of mounting up, he opened the pack, and brought out some apples, and fed one to his horse, before bringing an apple to Caitlyn, before holding out one to Zyliria.

“Thanks Dad!” said Caitlyn, eagerly accepting the fruit from her father and taking a bite, leaning against the tree and sliding back down to the ground. She closed her eyes for a moment, still a little tired, and a little sore from their impromptu sleeping location. She rolled her back a little from side to side, hearing the bones of her back click. She looked over at the road ahead of them, and felt a little nervous. She did not yet feel like she was dying, nor was she sure whether she even was. She hadn’t had any great bursts of power like she’d had when bandits had come to loot the ashen remains of Hostar. She wondered what would happen if they found someone who knew what was going on in Faela. What would become of her? She sighed, looking out over the path, her father and her new best friend, eating breakfast by a dying fire, and wished that she could stay like this forever.

Zyliria accepted the apple, eating slowly as she considered their plan for the day. Caitlyn had over the course of their trip told her about their plan, many times. They were to go to find someone “who could help her”. “So,” she said, looking over at Christopher. “Caitlyn’s told me all about what you want to find in Faela...but do you actually know who you’re looking for? Where to go?” She glanced over at Caitlyn, who shrugged blankly at her. She sighed and turned back to Christopher expectantly.

"Yes Zyliria. I know a man who runs an appraisal business in the market district. He usually knows a lot about things with special qualities to them. I've had to come to him more than a couple times to find out wether or not something I was transporting for the king was cursed." Christopher explained. He still had doubts about whether the man would be able to define what was going on with his daughter. He took a bite of his own apple, and smiled at his daughter.

Zyliria’s expression of curiosity instantly hardened into distaste. “We’re going to talk to a merchant?” Of all the Faelians, indeed, of all humans, merchants were very low on list of humans she approved of. She immediately disliked this plan but, as she had no offer to counter it with, and really did want to get out of the woods as soon as possible, decided to go with it. “All right, let’s go!” She stood up, finishing her apple in a moment and throwing its core into the trees and looking over expectantly at Caitlyn.

Caitlyn nodded, similarly tossing what remained of her apple over her shoulder into the woods and walking over to the horse. She was very nervous, but a little excited. She’d never been to Faela, or at least, had not remembered visiting the city, her parents might have taken her when she was very young. She looked forward to seeing what life was like in the nearby city. She was also looking forward to seeing groups of people not trying to kill her.

The apple Caitlyn threw landed in a bush, and a protest came calling from a little mouse whom had made a rats nest in the bramble. Christopher felt the rodent run across his foot, and kicked the small pest away. He heard Zyliria's tone do a complete 180, and wondered what she had against vendors. "He's not just any old vendor Zyliria. He was an apprentice of Merlin's himself." He truly wondered why she disapproved of merchants. He took slight offense, since while he was gone, his wife would take a job as a merchant to keep food on the table. Christopher got up, and hopped up onto the horse, before holding his hand out to his daughter. "Alright you two. Let's get going," he leaned closer to his daughter, and asked, "you ready to see the big city?"

“Hmm,” Zyliria echoed thoughtfully. Merchants were people who most frequently used the roads through the forests, and tended to be the most dangerous, attacking anything they thought would be a threat to their precious cargo. Zyliria knew little about Merlin, whatever that might be, but understood that Christopher highly respected this appraiser. “Very well, let’s go,” she said, plainly.

Caitlyn walked over to the horse, but was still too short to be able to actually get onto it without help. “Yeah,” she agreed, energetically. “On to Faela,”

Christopher took Caitlyn's hand, and pulled her up onto the horse, starting a slow trot. Christopher's feet ached from walking all the way to Faela, but Caitlyn's and Zyliria's hips must have been hurting much worse. "So, Zyliria, if we run into any trouble, you'll have our backs right?" That's when the sound of something moving in the bushes came from off to the left.

The trees parted at two figures walked into the road before them. They were wolves, like Zyliria but much, much larger. One of them was a dark, black wolf, with a dozen glowing golden halos burning on her coat. The other was, though it was hardly possible, even stranger. Slightly smaller than its black and gold compatriot, this one seemed less wolf than some part of the forest around them that had come to life. Its eyes, brown as the soil it trod on, glowed menacingly, and its appeared to be sprouting small leaves growing from its bodies. Its tail appeared to resemble a tree branch, lush with leaves.

As these two peculiar creatures stepped out onto the road, they transformed, and a pair of tall, austere women stood before the group, blocking their way. Even in their human form, the animi retained their unnatural accoutrements. The once black and gold wolf now had a golden halo shimmering over her head, and the wolf with a tree branch tail now seemed have leaves instead of hair, and odd tufts of leaves directly above her ears. The two radiated with magical power that Caitlyn felt. These two animi were adept witches, far more powerful than Zyliria was.

“Who are you,” asked Caitlyn, curiously. She could sense danger, knew that these women had not decided to step out from the brush to simply chat, but she did not feel uneasy about them. She wasn’t entirely sure why. Zyliria swallowed deeply. Two of them. These two were extremely powerful witches. She knew that all too well.

“Caitlyn,” she said, her voice slightly shaking, as she took a few steps forward, between the girl and the two animi. “These are my sisters. Imbyria and Lyfiria,” The two women smiled and nodded.

“I’m sorry to see you again, Zyliria. It will be a shame to have to kill you,” said Imbyria, the girl with the golden halo said quietly. “And you,” she said, raising her voice to address Christopher. “Poor boy without any magical powers...your death will not be the glorious one you knights always go on about. But you…” she cocked her head to once side, and turned to Caitlyn. “What are you, exactly?” She creeped forward, and Zyliria backed away from her, still keeping herself between Imbyria and Caitlyn. “I’ve never felt your power before, where did you get it?”

Christopher took his sword out of his scabbard, and held it menacingly at The newcomers. "No one is going to die! Just back off and no one gets hurt!" He stepped in front of Zyliria, protectively putting himself between these Animi, and Caitlyn. He noticed there was something different about these two from Zyliria. They made him nervous. "If you so much as touch us, I'll cut off your hand!" He was shaking. These strange women seemed to have more power than Zyliria, and he didn't feel confident. These women seemed dangerous, and he remembered how easily he had been overpowered by a group of normal men. These women seemed to have some sort of magic.
