[P] Its hard to keep the rainclouds out
#9
Location: The Charred Village (River of Fire) || NPCs: Reblin (in Lupus), Pim (ox) || Form: Optime



Percival nodded, the brevity and firmness of it suggesting satisfaction and approval. He thought that it would feel eerie and discomforting to rest among the carnage of Fiskebyn's village homes, where friends had died and a society ruined. Even to visit this place now, so many years later, left him feeling decidedly somber and unsettled. He wondered if Fiskebyn's ghost would ever find rest.

"That sounds more comforting," he commented with a polite smile, trying to sound lighter than he felt. "You are welcome any time, should you decide to come to New Caledonia sooner."

At the idea that Aenan's daughter would need a considerable amount of vouching, Reblin gave his tail a jolly wag and drew his lips back in a grin that made his tongue loll out of his mouth. To his cousin, no doubt, a troublemaking wild child sounded much more interesting than a polite and obedient youth who preferred not to take chances. But Percival, too, allowed a more natural smile to touch his lips.

"There are plenty of parents and other responsible adults within the Realm that will assuredly help to keep her out of too much trouble," he reassured the elder Pyr, his eyes brightening just a touch.

"Yeah, no exaggeration there," Reblin chimed in ruefully.

Percy uttered a thoughtful hum and allowed their words to hang in the air between the two parties for a beat longer. Pim, who had made himself comfortable in a patch of sun to chew his cud, got to his hooves again and began to graze.
