Re: The Sweetest Things Take Time

Nethra returned just as Colle was starting to wonder if the storm was starting. "Heard we’re getting you all inside. Nice cozy shack for old gear we cleaned out last week," she said as she walked into the area. "Wanna poke the bear? Or do I get to do it?" she asked with a grin. "You can take your ch...

Re: The Sweetest Things Take Time

Colle frowned as they watched Nethra leave. She looked almost as though she were running away from Chloe, like the younger woman was bad luck. They sighed and moved over to the still-sobbing woman. "Hey. I don’t know what they’ve got, but I’m pretty sure they’ll try everything they can to help." The...

Re: The Sweetest Things Take Time

"No you idiot, if you try and get up just to follow you're going to get hurt. Just stay here, they'll be back. If I didn't know better I'd think you'd never even held a hand. You're like a fucking lovesick puppy the size of a horse," Chloe berated Harroc, who was half-standing and looking the way C...

Re: The Sweetest Things Take Time

"I’m sure you want to eat and get cleaned up," Colle said. "I’m not going anywhere. Why don’t you go with the Rangers and take care of yourself." Chloe laughed softly and reached out to pet Harroc’s head. "If I can’t deal with this I’ve got no standing to challenge. Besides, I owe him my life. Clea...

Re: Thyme in the Wilds - Root Camp

Chloe couldn’t breathe, there wasn’t any air and her lungs refused to listen. Her vision was fading and a lingering pain in her legs slowly becoming an overwhelming burn. She knew she was in shock, possibly dying, and suddenly she heard her first Ranger instructor shouting at her. “You’ve broken it,...

Re: Thyme in the Wilds - Root Camp

They had made good time moving away from the lake. Harroc hoped it was far enough to be outside the range of notice for whatever caster had corrupted the beavers. This was a very large problem and would need an organized response he and his student could not give alone. "Chloe, slow, we should adjus...

Re: Thyme in the Wilds - Root Camp

The giant beaver-creature immediately reappeared, only its head emerging from the murky cloud of mud it had created. It watched Harroc warily, clearly uncertain how to respond and choosing caution. Harroc repeated his question, {"What has harmed you?”} The beaver chittered and wiped its face, waddli...

Re: Thyme in the Wilds - Root Camp

Chloe spent several minutes just looking over the terrain they’d need to cross. There weren’t a lot of options for crossing the river outside of an area where it left the lake end. Everything else downriver was briars or was clearly moving too fast even from this distance. "That’s a lot of water mov...

Re: Thyme in the Wilds - Root Camp

Chloe finished adjusting her frame of reference several minutes later. Suddenly the myriad of vibrant plants around them seemed to lose their lustre as her mind began to categorize them as background noise. First the inedible but docile plants faded away. Next, she removed the over-common ones that ...

Re: Thyme in the Wilds - Root Camp

Harroc chuckled softly and moved his hand slowly, still clearly wary of his mistakes. When Chloe didn’t react, or even tense, he ran a sliver of power into his fingers, gently stroking at the edge of her shoulders. Chloe groaned, her eyes closing tight as she felt a faint pop of tension unravel. The...
