Plus he won't want to destroy the castle itself. This is going to be the last war between us, win or lose. Besides, if we stay here, then he won't be able to sneak around to take the throne." She said then looked to Avelon again.
Don chuckled softly "I have ways." He said then shrugged "And as you said, you are not good, so there is no reason for me to tell you" He reached for the water again, playing with the bottle between his hands "You would be surprised at what us shifters have accomplished I think"
Kyra wasn't mad, she had thought he was playing again, getting her back for tickling him earlier. She tilted her head a bit then grinned then hugged him."Apology accepted"
Jackie shook her head "There's no way to know" She said and looked to the house as they came up to it. "Probably back to what he knows"
Skylar smiled and held out some jerky to him "It's rabbit jerky, we try to always keep food and medical supplies close" She explained then got a piece for herself.
Anna laughed and shook her head, looking to Raine "No, he's greeting his pack member in his traditional way" She explained then looked back to Zypher and smiled at him
Jason kissed her gently then sighed and looked away "I can't stay" He said then explained about his father and needing to take over the pack for him
The room murmured their agreement with her plan. Avalon smiled widely at Sorcha and said, "That confirms it. We fight for our home, in our home. Let's make the most of our time. Make all battle preparations. "
In a riotous voice, they all said, "Yes, my Queen! " The majority of them Left with purpose.
Avalon looked to Sorcha and stated, "You are a rare assist to my kingdom."
Xavier shrugged nonchalantly. "It is a good tactical advantage to sell yourself as less then what you are." He replied, as he started walking aimlessly in thought. He had been testing the waters of an alignment of mutual benefits. Xavier periodically glanced over at Don, in speculation. He was about to ask, when Markus returned. Xavier instantly straightened and looked at Markus with a blank expression.
Markus gave him a hard look. He then looked between the two. But seeing that they looked as if the hadn't been talking, he relaxed his suspicions.
He walked over to his desk and poured himself a drink. After he took a long drink, he let out a deep breath. "Your wolves are providing quite resourceful. But that just means they are fast becoming first on my list of things to be dealt with." He said with ire.
"Problems, Markus? " Xavier asked with a note of levity.
Markus glared at him with a sneer. "What gives you that idea? " He asked sarcastically.
Graydon was elated. "I'm glad. " He said simply.
Bertram stopped in front of the steps. He knelt down on his kelpie knees so she could step off.
Jaxon eagerly took the offered food. He took a small bite and made a sound at the delicious taste. "Oh, I think I like this rabbit. Thank you, Skylar. " He said with conviction. He was so glad she was a meat eater too.
Raine looked at Zypher again as he stepped out from behind Anna. "Oh, well don't just spring it on unsuspecting guests. It intimidating. But then that could be a good thing." He teased him back.
Zypher chuckled dispite himself. "Fear not. I wouldn't think of it." He explained as he headed down the hallway.
Luce listened intently as he explained everything. She wanted to go with him. But didn't feel it was her place to ask such a thing. She wasn't really an asset in his world. "I understand, Jason. It is very important you do this. It is your legacy and your people need you. The couldn't have a more capable leader. You father taught you well." She said with the utmost respect.Edited by NickyKnack - 3/13/16 at 11:14am
