[P] The Shadows That Flutter Through The World
#1
Keeping a light hold on her dapple grey gelding, Birch, as she swung off of Twitch, her red roan mare, Reyna murmured to the pair softly. "Steady, steady." She had let them rest for a while after they had arrived on the island, and the horses were now a little too energetic. The cats were back at a house the she had found for them, and she was taking this opportunity to look around the stables she had heard of.

The hybrid stretched her back, her mostly copper red fur gleaming in the bright winter sun. It was cold, and snow still hugged the ground, but the sky was a clear, bright blue, not a cloud in sight. The cold had forced her to wear a warm gray woolen sweater and soft buckskin trousers. Despite having lived in this land through two winters already, she had never grown used to the cold. Turning to her animals, the female began to lead them into the stables.

Even in the dead of winter when places should be holed up and become all musty and damp did they stay airy. He was so much like his mother, a perfectionist, that it was almost painful. And he could see a lot of himself in her. But there was a lot of Temo in him too and it was this part of him, the mind of a builder and a carpenter that had him inspecting the wood along the walls. He dragged his fingers across the grain, testing for any that might be bowing already. He would need to keep up with this one, Midnight Shores was a lot wetter than Cercatori.

Things had begun to heal, but it was a slow process with her. She was learning to trust again and to confide in him, her breakdown at Dust's feet had started off some of it, Honrin sniffed to himself and moved onto the next stall, filling the wooden corner feeder with grain. Appreciative noises came at him from every horse he passed and although his life was simpler now without the white stallion here, Honrin kind of missed the uncontrollable Emmett and his wild ways. It had been a bit of danger in a life that was rapidly growing secure and safe.

Artan nickered at him, calling out for a treat and Honrin pressed his hand against the stallion's soft muzzle, "You're getting way too greedy you know, boy. If you don't stop eating you'll get fat and slow and then Dust will beat you for the mares." Artan tossed his head and shorted derisively, on cue from down the row Dust neighed and to Honrin it sounded like laughter. Artan pulled his head back from the door and turned in his stall so that his rump faced Honrin. The Denahlii male laughed, and petted Artan's rump before filling his feed bucket and moving on.

Once he was finished he returned the feed bucket back to where they kept the grain and grabbed up his brushes. Quite a few of them, Honrin knew the preference of each horse in the herd whether they liked a rough or smooth or if they were thick furred or thin furred. Grooming was a restful activity for him as well as the horses, it was a kind of down time and let him bond with them beyond just feeding and exercising.

A voice and movement had him turning his head and he saw across the stalls an unknown female enter the stables with two horses, the dapple grey and red roan were beautiful animals, their hooves against the wooden flooring adding to the rest of them. Moving out from the other side of the stables he raised a hand in greeting, "Hey there. You must be new, right?" The burly male made his way closer and smiled at the female, "Welcome to Midnight Shores. I'm Honrin Wolfe-Denahlii, the Stable Master." His heavy accent distorted the words but they were clear enough for the female to understand.

Turning to face the male, Reyna smiled. Her gaze landed on his chest, and she had to look up, and further up to look him in the eye. When he greeted her, she spoke calmly, "Hello. You're right, I am new around here."

When Honrin welcomed her to Midnight Shores and introduced himself, she smiled and murmured a soft "Thank you." Before the hybrid could give him her name in return, Twitch started snorting and shifting. The mare had grown impatient with waiting and was starting to act up. Usually, the red roan was very well behaved, but with the way she was starting to act, the female began to believe she might be in heat. "I'm sorry, she's been kind of a brat today. I'm Reyna Zaya."

Honrin was always the friendly type even when he was in the midst of his own personal crises, no reason to put his poor home relations on the others. Do unto others what you would others to do unto you, or something like that. She turned to look at him and had to look up. Sometimes females were surprised at his height and strength and would unconsciously take a step backwards, not this one, she just smiled. The Denahlii crossed his arms across his chest, leaning against one of the posts.

His smile widened as her mare began to fuss and stamp impatiently, Honrin liked fiery horses with spirit and personality, just like he liked his females. "She's a wild one." He chuckled softly, his eyes roved over the mulish mare,"Well its nice to meet you Reyna. I'll show you where to stable them if you want? We have something of a system here to make things easier on all of us."

OOC: Sorry, yesterday was my birthday, so I didn't get a chance to reply :)

Once the hybrid had gotten Twitch mostly settled again, though the mare still snorted and shook her head occasionally, she turned her attention back to Honrin. When he chuckled and commented that she was wild, Reyna flashed him a bit of a smirk. “She can be a bit of a handful sometimes, when I haven’t taken her hunting in a while.” Pointing a thumb at Birch, the female continued, “My boy on the other hand, is always mellow.”

Calmly listening to the male speak, she patted Twitch on the neck, rubbing softly as she did so. The Luperci only interjecting to say, “It’s nice to meet you too.” After he offered to show her where to stable them, the European grinned brightly. While she might prefer to let her horses roam free in a pasture, a stable was perfect in this kind of weather. It was insulated against the cold, they wouldn’t get covered in snow or rain, and they could always be exercised. “That would be fantastic, thank you. What’s this system of your’s?”

He smiled and listened as she spoke and there was an expression of relation on his face, "I know the feeling. My stallion Artan goes crazy after a few days of being penned in. I can't take him out as much as I would like." From somewhere behind Honrin a horse snorted and somehow managed to make it sound derogatory, the golden-eyed male turned to glare at his steed that was watching the exchange and the new horses with undisguised interest, head sticking out over his stall door.

The sounds of the stables were home for Honrin and if he didn't have Kenna and MYrddin to go back to each night he would probably sleep here with them too. As if he needed to spend any more time here than he already did. "Well it's not too complicated really. The males on one side and the females on the other. We had an accident when we first set up, two of the stallions began fighting over their stall walls for a mare that was next to one of them when she went into season so... yeah we keep them separated. It makes things easier." Honrin's hands moved as he spoke, gesturing out the little story.

The stables were very neat and were set out in an orderly fashion. The room was a rectangle, with four rows of stalls, each one ten stalls long. Midnight Shores had room for forty horses. The two middle rows were fully separated from each other by a wall of wood so that the horses from each side couldn't reach each other. "If your mare and gelding are really attached we could put them both in the female side, you said he was mellow and most geldings tend not to fight over females." He waited for her response.

A bright grin crossed the female’s face as she listened to the male talk about his stallion. “Yeah, these two aren’t used to a whole lot of inactivity.” Her gaze moved beyond the male when a horse snorted derogatorily behind him. The head of a stallion stuck out over his stall door as he peered at her horses with obvious interest.

The strong smell of horses filled the rectangular building, overwhelming Reyna’s senses, and bringing a sense of comfort with it. She watched the male gesture as he told the story of a fight between two stallions for a mare back when they first set up the stables. A short chuckle escaped her as the listened to him. "That would work a little better, yes." While the story seemed a little humorous in the abstract, it had probably been a very difficult and dramatic situation when it happened.

She looked a little closer at the layout of the stables, peering at both sides of the partition that went down the middle. The stables of stallions stood on one side of it, and mares on the other. It seemed to her that you could easily fit forty horses in this one room. When Honrin mentioned having Twitch and Birch remain together, she flashed him a quick smile. “Having them stay together would be perfect, he can sometimes calm Twitch down when she’s being antsy. Would you mind showing me where I can put them?”
