"We could easily have taken our grievances with your people to the city and killed and kidnapped the innocents there as you have done to us. Taken and destroyed their homes and way of life."
Star smiled at him again. He always made her feel so important and like what she said mattered to him. IT was one reason why she loved him. She looked ahead again, watching for the flowers once they reached the garden.
Kyra nodded and smiled at him "For jerky we will need a lot of long sticks and vines to tie them with as well as firewood and that knife we found" She said, getting up to start taking the buck back to the tree den.
The wolves were either above or below the line of fire. The ones below were also below ground level. One thing wolves could do was to dig holes. One or two returned fire, though most waited on the signal from Jason or Anna to go into a full fight. The ones that returned fire were closer to the ridge, there to draw the group in closer
Ember looked to him then kissed his jaw softly "No, that day is not yet here." She agreed then silently vowed to let herself burn when he died, taking his ashes with her to a new life.
Jackie smiled again and nodded, "Of course Bertram" She said gently.She turned away, going to answer the phone when it rang to update them on what was going on. (Jason's phone call earlier, lol)
Angela was still awake and looked up at him at his words. "But, you have a say in where we go and what we do too. I would not take your choice away from you" She said softly. She didn't want to trap him in any way.
Rico sneered at Don. "Then we'd just hunt you down like the dog you are." He said with conviction.
Falkirk breathed in the cooling night air. The essence of the roses sweet perfume still lingered on the breeze. But soon, the moon flowers fragrance would banish it from the air. "I think night walks in the garden are my favorite. Everything is so different in the light of the moon. I love that the paving stones still hold the heat of the suns underfoot, while the night air is noticeably cooler. The blanket of darkness gives the illusion of privacy." He reflected absently. He glanced over his shoulder to ensure that they still had the security of the brother Sylphs. Satisfied, he focused on the pathway up ahead.
Graydon nodded as he grabbed ahold of the buck's front legs to help drag it home. "This is so exciting." He said with enthusiasm.
Which half of the men did advance. While Allen ordered a group to head for the cave to get the shifter they came for. He then focused back on the few gunshots, looking for a straightforward counter attack.
Wrath growled and looked for a target to turn the brain to mush.
Phury waited for the attack. That was how he was trained. They he'd release his fury upon the enemy.
( What a powerful sentiment. Awe inspiring and beautifully written.
Cadeon took Ember's hand and guided her to the door. He wanted to move somewhere a little more private. It was all still so new and fresh. He wasn't quite over the close call. He was selfish of her attention and he wanted it all to himself, for now. He guided them to the porch, to sit awhile.
Bertram nodded slightly and moved to the kitchen to drink a couple glasses of water. He looked out the kitchen window blankly as he drank them down.
"You could never take my choice away from me. My choice is to remain by you side. If that's alright with you." He asked hopefully, as he held up a grape to her lips. Tempting them to open to receive it.
