Strawberry - Setting off on her own
stayed hidden in the trees, watching the last werewolf get killed. She would have jumped in to help if it looked for a second like they needed her help. But everything seemed alright, and she relaxed a bit. She moved so that she was almost completely hidden by the tree, with just half her face visible as she looked around to watch the elves. She didn't think they could see her; she was very good at hiding, but then these were elves. She wasn't used to elves, so she didn't know how much better their eyesight was compared to human's.
She only stayed long enough to be sure that they weren't going to get slaughtered. She didn't want to take off and then find out later that they all died because she had not stuck around to help them fight. Sure, they all seemed to be exceptional fighters but those were werewolves, and there had been a lot of them. But now it was time to take her leave from them. It was safest for everyone, she felt sure. Especially Nyarane
. She didn't trust the woman elf not to try and take that jewel from her again. She'd had enough trouble of that nature and she really didn't want to go through anything similar again. Therefore, she knew she had to get away from them, and the sooner the better. Not to mention that she also needed to get away before they encountered anyone that might, perhaps, be searching for Strawberry.
Hearing the newest arrival, the elf she had given the blade to, announcing that she had gone, Strawberry withdrew slightly more into the shadows of the trees. She didn't want them to find her. It took her a moment to notice that Tirindo
was actually staring right at her. She froze, wondering if he had seen her or if he just happened to be looking in her direction. She felt her heart racing. If they came after her, she could run. She was pretty fast despite her short height and could usually outrun people, like guards and such. But she'd rather get away in stealth. She let out a breath that she hadn't really known she was holding when she heard him saying that they would not be going after her. She didn't really mind losing the dagger she had passed over to Camando
. It wasn't one of any special meaning, just something she'd grabbed from some bandit back in a part of the world they called Gondor.
She was almost insulted at the insinuation that she might have stolen their horses. She'd only done that once and it was only to save the horse.. she didn't really know if she could ride horses anyway. Rolling her eyes a little, she watched them, and was glad to hear that Tirindo
at least didn't think she'd stolen them. She waited until they had left, then she emerged from her hiding place and took off down the road, the direction she had originally be headed in. She kept an eye out for the elves' horses in case she came across them, and she would do her best to send them after the elves if she did. Not that she figured the horses would really understand her if she told them to do anything but she'd try.
Sighing, the girl adjusted her pack on her back and continued walking. Eventually she would find a town, but how far away? She was sort of wondering, after this, if there was anywhere that she could possibly hide these dangerous items she carried around. She didn't want to risk another like Nyarane, but she also felt more secure having these things with her, so she could be sure that no one took them. It was a tough decision, and she would have to think on it. In the meanwhile, she was hoping there might be a decent cobbler in the next town, so she could try and get some new shoes...
(Lol you got a bit ahead of me there, Rane. But this is my final post, from here she goes to Bree (:
