Sky and me 1x1

((okay :). hm persuasion time...))

 

Sabrina nodded before taking the needle from him and both carefully and quickly starting to stitch up the injury that had opened again. As she did this, she listened to everything that he said before saying in reply with a small blush from him listing some of her qualities, “You make me happy just by being near you and I can hunt for food. I’ve done it before on my travels and while I was in between towns/villages. I can make myself warm so that won’t be a problem. I also don’t think your wolf form is scary at all. Growing up, I was always around animals and learning from my birth mum on how to heal them when they were wounded. Some of them were wolves.”

((Ah yes, but we have 3 pages until the romance can really began so I'm going to make him suffer a little while longer. 😈))

 

 

"Please don't. Don't say such things. Your mum taught you well then..." Like she knew you'd be a shaman one day.  He finished in his head. "I don't doubt your skills, but I'll hold my ground on this matter. My brother and I don't deserve a fine woman like you. However I made you a promise. " He said rubbing the balm on his scratches. He then took the wrappings and tried to put them on himself with little to no success. "I swore that I'd help you find a house and escort you to your other parents and back here. I might be a wild hermit, but I also am a man of my word. Anyway, I'm glad I gave you generic arrows I can make anytime. Otherwise my artwork would have been split in two. I was only able to do that once, and the arrow was old anyway. " He said softly changing the subject.

((hopefully those three more pages will come quickly, then))

 

“Although it’s true?” Sabrina asked softly before noticing that he was trying to put the bandages on with little success so she silently took over that job for him while listening to everything else he said. “Sorry about that then and you’re not wild to me or a brute no matter what those villagers say. Also I’m thankful for you wanting to escort me to my other parents’ house as well as helping me find a house later in your village. Speaking of, should we head back after you’ve been patched up or wait a bit longer to head back?” she said and asked in reply to everything else he said.

"Don't be sorry, I make those arrows a dime a dozen.  Durable yet easy to make. Yeah, we should head back. I need to give the signal that everything is okay. Tonight is the full moon so there's a huge celebration tonight. I don't think anyone is going to get any sleep tonight with this beast being gone they have no fear to party tonight. " He chuckled. Once wrapped up, he got to his feet and headed out the other exit. "This way to the village. It comes out a stone mound near the gate. I don't go this way often but you'll be able to see this entrance too." He said lighting a lamp to lead them out. 

 

The tunnel curved like a serpent, first sloping down into the earth more before curving up again. It was dark with roots hanging down with beams set up like an old mine shaft until they came to a crude wooden door.  He went outside and stopped. In front of the door was a witchcraft circle made of stones, bones and what looked like dried blood.  The area around it had snow, yet the spot was completely clear despite no trees around to cover it. 

 

Furious, he handed her the lamp and sliced his hand open drawing over the satanic symbols and drawing his own magic circle in his own blood over the top of the existing one. Once finished- and his hand still bleeding- he straightened and grew in size till he was partially human and partially wolf. He chanted in the ancient language, voice low slowly rising in intensity. 

 

The first circle glowed bright red, drowning the soft blue of Adonis' circle.  For five minutes it glowed, growing deeper in color until it was nearly a unnatural blackish light. Once the sixth minute hit however a brilliant white light took over until it was nearly blinding. Two more minutes of intense light and heat. Then it vanished, leaving a circle of grass and flowers like summer was in full bloom and a very pale and feverish boy who flopped to the ground, power exhausted.

“Okay,” Sabrina said and smiled a bit at what he said about there going to be a party tonight because of there being a full moon before following after him towards the other entrance that he had. “It sounds like that could come in handy especially if you need to quickly get back here,” she said in reply to what he said where this entrance led to before being handed the lantern. She could tell by his face that he was angry and when she looked at the ground, she figured out the reason for it. She then watched curiously as he made a new circle over the offending one but then got really concerned when she saw him flop to the ground. “Are you okay? Do you think you can make it make to the inn to rest?” she asked with now a concerned expression on her face as she tried to get him to stand while putting her free arm around him in order to support him.

"Damned witch.... putting a demon circle outside my home.... so tired.... of this job...." He said fighting to stay awake. He got to his feet with her help, taking slow steps on legs that wobbled like a newborn calf. "With help.... yeah..." He answered her question, face flushed with a fever.

“How do you know it was a witch that did that?” Sabrina asked curiously before nodding in reply to the rest of what he said as she helped him walk to the village’s gate. Some other villagers that were nearby saw them coming and assisted her further in bringing him to the inn where she seeked out his mom but didn’t see her right away after they entered through the front entrance.

"I can feel energy like you can feel the wind and the cold. " He had stopped near a tree, partially transformed his hand and drew a single horizontal line through the four vertical ones marked on the tree symbolizing it's safe. When they reached the gate his hand was back to normal and only a couple men helped her with Adonis to the infirmary of the inn. 

 

Ray came as soon as she was called, shooed everyone out save for Jack the coachman who was still unconscious, Adonis and Sabrina. "What happened? Is it clear?"

 

"Circle found. Beast killed... purified.... Zzzzzzzzzzzz" Adonis was out cold.

Sabrina had nodded to his reply to her question and then had watched him curiously as he had made the new mark on the tree before they had reached the inn. She was about to answer Ray’s question when Adonis partially answered it and when he passed out afterward, she went into a bit more detail. “I shot and killed the beast with a bow and some arrows he made and then I helped him get some of his injuries healed when we were at his place in the woods. After that as we were making our way back here, he found a witchcraft circle, purified it, and then ended up getting a fever from doing so. Just before we got back here, he made a new mark on the other symbol of the tree that he had marked last night to signal that it was clear.”

"Purification takes energy. He'll be very hungry and weak for a couple days. It's literally using their own life force to clean the area." Ray stated cleaning up and wrapping her son's sliced hand. "He heals faster than any human so the chance of illnesses are slim, but being wounded multiple times and purifying would definitely lower his healing ability dramatically. The witch we found and drove from the village was a demon worshipper. Such dark energy could poison him. How long did it take for the white light to spread in the circle?" She asked placing a damp cool cloth on his forehead. "He will function normally though... probably would be on his feet tomorrow no matter how much I want him to take things easy. " she heaved a sigh. "I best finish preparations for the feast tonight and make a large cauldron of tea for hangovers." She rolled her eyes covering Adonis with a blanket. "Look after him would you dear?" She asked with a small smile.

“Oh okay,” Sabrina said in reply while watching as Ray cleaned and bandaged Adonis’ hand wound before hearing the rest of what she said and asked. “It lit up for about eight minutes,” she said before hearing the rest of what was said. She smiled a bit at the news of him functioning like normal by tomorrow but then it faltered slightly when she heard the last question. “Sure,” she said with the smile now showing in her eyes as she had her attention be on Adonis.

She sighed to tired to explain about the length of time the white light (Adonis's energy) to overtake the other color energy and how it would effect him. She then smiled slightly got up and left the room. 

 

Indeed, shouting spread throughout the village and soon everyone was once again rushing around children helping parents, the bonfire was relit, barrels of alcohol was brought out from the inn's cellar. It wasn't even three in the afternoon yet the drinking started, and men stumbled around helping move tables  out for the feast. 

 

"Go have fun. I'll be fine." Adonis muttered, eyes unfocused as he looked at her.

Sabrina sighed as well but after Ray had left. She knew that she didn’t know much about life force energy but she had just been estimating with how long it had been lit for in the circle that Adonis had created. She used the cloth that was on his forehead to pat it a bit before having it be still once again on the skin. She had been glad to hear that he would be somewhat back to normal by tomorrow and walking around but also hoped that he would be able to attend the celebration that was going to happen later in the evening. If he wouldn’t be, she would get some food from it and bring it back to him so that he could eat something. She could hear the shouting coming from outside and people starting to get ready for the celebration later but she hadn’t heard what Adonis said over the noise.

 

((that’s okay :) and I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t sleep well :(. I hope you’re able to get some better sleep later this evening ^_^))

Adonis spoke up a little more. "You go have fun. I'm not big on parties, and besides I am usually not present during this time. There's a book that explains everything about my kind and what you need to know as a shaman. You will be presented with it later. It's too much to explain by words alone. You go... " He waved his hand in a weak shooing motion. 

 

((I hope so too.  And it's rainy today. Ugh ))

“Okay and it’s not time yet for the party. I think it’s a little bit later than now although it sounds like people are starting to get excited about it but I’ll wait until it’s a bit more in full swing. Also your mum asked me to look over you as she made a big cauldron of tea for later so I’ll stay here in the meantime and do that,” Sabrina said in reply with a smile at him. “Would you like me to bring you back any food I might get later so that you’re eating something?”

 

((where I live and work, too. it’s not currently raining right now where I work so I’m out walking to take a small break. I think it’s supposed to start up again here a bit later in the afternoon and we might also get more tomorrow as well))

"I'll have some lamb... maybe some sweet biscuits that the baker made... some honey wine too." He mused. "It lasts all day. So go and enjoy yourself." He said with a little smile.

“Alright I’ll make sure to bring those back for you,” Sabrina said in reply still the smile on her face before squeezing his hand a bit and then getting up to go outside. She told Ray on her way out that he was awake and talking and also requested a few things from the party outside to eat and drink in order to update her on his current condition. When she was outside, she went to where some food was already set out and got a few things to eat for herself. She hadn’t realized until then just how hungry she was.

Ray and Adonis held a conversation when Sabrina went outside after she informed Ray on his current condition.  Ray then continued on with making the tea, leaving her son propped up by the window so he can watch the excitement going down. 

 

 

They had set up games, archery contests, the best imitation of a wolf snarl, three legged races, a drinking contest, a eating contest of the most bread rolls eaten, kids running around in costumes and props for their play and a group of young women around her age made crowns of mistletoe, willow and Daphne bholua  a star shaped pink flower with a strong sweet smell.

After Sabrina had gotten some snacks to eat, she looked around at each event that was set up for the celebration and noticed that one of them was an archery contest that was going to happen in a few minutes. She excitedly went over to the table and signed herself up for it before getting in line with the rest of the participants that had also signed up for it.

The contestants were handed a plain bow and three arrows to hit the target fifty paces away. For the little ones it was ten paces. It was split in age groups then gender for the young ones, and the men a nd women can compete for the adult competition. The younger group went first, a little boy winning his own bow and set of arrows, the bow carved like a slender dragon and the girl got a leather wolf mask that she put on giggling then ran around chasing the boys and scarring people with her new mask. The adults were next. 

 

They stepped up to the line, seven people total, five of them guys, one a already drunken woman who was flirting heavily with the man behind her. The couple were apparently on their honeymoon and are staying at the inn. of them all, only two lived in the village. A handsome young man winked at Sabrina. "Name's Xavier, what's yours doll?" He smiled and looked at the burly blacksmith who set up the composition as he gave instructions. 

 

"Okay archers! First place gets a lovely bow and arrow set made by the only local carpenter carved from zebra wood depicting the story of the first Wolf protector with a cow hide waterproof quiver.  If you already have a bow, we have this exquisite walking staff for you..." He brought out a long staff with a snake on it getting a shriek from a onlooker. 

 

"That's a poisonous snake!" She screeched. The man who was running the contest laughed. "Calm down miss, I assure you, this reptile isn't real. It's hand carved  and painted from our extremely talented carpenter Adonis. " to reassure everyone he rapped on the head of the 'snake' were it sat unmoving. "Guaranteed to scare off robbers if you appear to be a snake charmer.  Made from Quebracho wood, it's one of the hardest woods out there able to brake an ax! So if the snake doesn't scare them, don't be afraid to take a swing.  First prize also comes with a red hood, you'll have your choice of design and will be given to you by the end of the week. You get three shots! Get all three in the bulls eye and you win! Now, archers ready!" He called raising his arm. "Fire!" He said bringing his arm down. 

 

The drunk woman's three went everywhere but the target, three of the men got close, one got one on the center and the tall handsome young man beside Sabrina got two in the center and the third on the outer ring. Once again he winked at her. His shots happened quick and he obviously thought he'd won.

Sabrina was given the bow and arrows after while giving the man in charge of the contest a nod of thanks before trying it out while pulling the string back a few times to make sure she could handle it. After she heard what the prizes were and the rules as well as his explanation of the snake staff to the drunken lady and everyone else in line, she heard a voice come from next to her. “It’s nice meet you Xavier. My name’s Sabrina,” she said in reply to the tall handsome young man with a small smile to his greeting but seeming unfazed by the wink he gave her before getting ready with an arrow on the string now to shoot after the blacksmith said to get ready to fire and then waited for him to give the signal. When it came, she shot the arrow she had ready which went right into the center and then shot a second one that ended up going into the target a bit lower than the center a few seconds later. She just smiled at Xavier before putting her third arrow on the string and then breathed out slowly just before shooting it. It ended up splitting the first arrow in half while being in the dead center of the target.

Xavier dropped his bow. The blacksmith whistled. "Three arrows in the bulls eye! This expert markswoman wins! " He looks at the sign up sheet. "Sabrina is it? Come over here and collect your prizes. The young man..." He glanced at the sheet again. "Xavier you get the bow. Adonis gave this young woman one already." He turned to Sabrina with a grin. "My name is Andrew, I help him sell some of his work and store the ones he completed. He stopped by early this morning and picked up a lovely cherry wood bow correct? The staff is yours and my wife will make you your hood. She has patterns drawn out over there..." He said pointing out a equally burly woman sitting in a elegant rocking chair folding bolts of fabric. "She's Yara, oh, and do you know if Adonis is still in town? My son is looking for him. Adonis is his best friend.." He handed her the walking staff. It was larger than her, and a little heavy but it was perfect for walking around and hiking in mountains.  

 

((I saw your post and was like "yes!" In a quiet room. It startled my poor sleeping dog on my lap XD))

Sabrina smiled at the man and then nodded in reply to his question about her name was and then followed his instructions to get what she won. “It’s nice to meet you Andrew and yes that’s correct. Thank you and I’ll do that after our conversation. Yes he’s in town but is in the medical room of the inn because his side injury reopened and had to be restitched,” she said in reply with a smile before heading over to his wife to look over the designs for the hood.

 

((aw poor pupper ^_^))

"Hello miss. I'm Yara, now I have many designs in this book. I sew every one and each is unique. Of course you'll pick the shade of red and the lining color, then I'll do any details in embroidery." She said pulling out a book of many different styles including the one that Ray had. She then pulled out a ring of red fabric ranging from deep merlot to a soft red ranging from silk to linen to velvet. 

 

Xavier tested the bow and then hung in the shadows watching Sabrina.  After the contestants were finished, Andrew was seen talking to a man that around Adonis' age and was a younger spitting image of Andrew that could only be his son Joseph. After a brief conversation, and a stop at the buffet tables Joseph headed to the inn. 

 

The children's play started to be put on.

“Nice to meet you. I’m Sabrina,” Sabrina said in reply to Andrew’s wife with a smile before listening to everything she said regarding the details and what kind of fabric to get the cloak in. She looked in the book for a style she liked and pointed to one that had a clasp in front and white linen in the hood with a dark red rose embroidered design that was embedded in the fabric. “Would this one be doable and can it be in light red with velvet fabric please?” she asked as she looked up from the book and back up at Yara.

 

((uh-oh is Xavier going to do something to Sabrina? 😶))
