Talen goes quiet for a moment and turns his gaze away.
“Yeah,” he says simply.
He gets up and takes a few steps around, staring into vacancy.
“You hear them too, huh.”November 21, 2019 at 4:51 am #119422Thomas whiteParticipant
Dusk says nothing at that comment, unsure of how to respond. “gunna go check on Laurel, see if she has found a spirit to talk to.” Dusk brushes off his hands and heads towards where Laurel went. “Call out if anything happens.” He says to Talen.November 21, 2019 at 5:31 am #119427Estrella NeishParticipant
Laurel makes her way through the woods back towards the town, leading a small child by the hand. She chats with the little girl as they walk. “you’ll like my friend. He’s very kind and has a nice horse called Biscuit” Before too long, they run into Dusk in the forest just outside the town. “Dusk! This is Astra. She’s the only one I’ve found so far.”November 21, 2019 at 5:37 am #119428Thomas whiteParticipant
Dusk smiles down at the little girl. He takes a knee to be at her height. “Howdy miss Astra. I see you have met my friend Miss Laurel. I was looking for a good place to maybe eat some food, was thinking a picnic might be in order. Are you hungry?”November 21, 2019 at 5:47 am #119433TBirdParticipant
The little girl will perk up at the mention of food “I love picnics! I’ve never eaten before because this is a new body and then we can go find Mommy and Daddy when the monsters are gone and we can go home and is that a gun? Daddy doesn’t like guns he likes swords and knives and is really good with them and really strong i saw him wrestle a Beastman once and win and the Beastman had horns”November 21, 2019 at 6:00 am #119434Estrella NeishParticipant
Laurel looks pained when the girl talks about her parents, but hides it with a soft smile “We need our guns and weapons to help protect people. I’ve got a sword, see?” she gestures to the weapon hanging on her belt “Lets get some food, then I’ll go back out to look for spirits again”November 21, 2019 at 6:00 am #119435Thomas whiteParticipant
Dusk chuckles at her exuberance and lays out some food on the stump of a tree for the girl to eat. “I think all the monsters are gone now darlin. Did they have horns like the beastman your daddy wrestled?”November 21, 2019 at 6:30 am #119436TBirdParticipant
Digging into the food, Astra will talk happily through the meal “I didn’t see it but I heard the growls and noises like a BIIIG bear or maybe a Beastman bear who was really angry or hungry or maybe hungry and angry and stepped on a nail. I was scared a little then I was dead and wasn’t scared anymore but I was sad and didn’t know why and remembered that Mommy said if the Bad old Men came back and we died to go the chaotic place and we would have a new body but I forgot where it was and everything looked strange and I got lost and I think it ate my feet……”November 21, 2019 at 7:27 am #119441Estrella NeishParticipant
“it’s alright now, because we found you. You must be very brave to get through all that. Can you tell us anything more about the chaotic place? Is that where the others would go?” She pulls Dusk close as they talk, leaning against him for comfort.November 21, 2019 at 5:29 pm #119490KrissParticipant
Talen finds a log and sits on it. His back is turned to the conversation and he watches the ground, or the air, or nothing in particular.November 21, 2019 at 7:35 pm #119515Thomas whiteParticipant
Dusk puts a comforting arm around Laurel. “Do you know if it was just one creature or many creatures Astra. We want to try and stop it before it hurts anyone else.”November 21, 2019 at 8:28 pm #119532TBirdParticipant
Her face a look of childlike concentration Astra will think long and hard before going “Maybe?”November 21, 2019 at 10:01 pm #119557Thomas whiteParticipant
Dusk smiles. ” Thank you for trying Astra. We all need to keep looking for people to help and then we will head back to our town. If we haven’t found your mom and dad by then can you come with us? We can leave a note for them if they come while we are gone. I am a doctor, and want to make sure you are all good.”November 21, 2019 at 11:30 pm #119586TBirdParticipant
Astra will shrug “Okay. I want to ride the big bug!”November 21, 2019 at 11:52 pm #119587Thomas whiteParticipant
“okay Darlin.” Dusk leans over near Laurel’s ear and whispers to her, then kisses her cheek. ” You stay with miss Laurel and I will go get Biscuit. We’ll go about looking for more folks and then head back to the Fringe.”
