It took Lyssa a moment or two to get the right sounds on her tongue, but as soon as she parroted the little phrase to her mare, it was obvious she had made Belle's day. It was probably so satisfying for the horse to finally hear something in her own language, probably even more so when it came from her rider. Tohopka had been excitable and giddy about that sort of thing once, but nowadays their conversations in low speech were so frequent that he instead reveled in hearing Phoenix trip over himself.

"She said she likes you, too," he grinned. It wasn't exactly what he had her recite, but it was a close enough translation. If nothing else, it could get her started.

His bright green eyes widened a bit when Lyssa... described his sister down to a tee. "Yeah, she... yeah, that sounds about like her," he replied slowly, uncertainly. What were the odds this coyote had actually met Sedona, though? She still could have been mistaken; there were so many Luperci in the world, after all. More than two had to have the name "Sedona" and looked like cowgirls.

But still...

"Was she, uh, she got green eyes like mine? About yey tall?" He held up a paw to where her height probably was. "Pretty outgoing? Probably had a horse with 'er, painted mare?" His eyes were wide now, excitable. "N' you say she's livin' in this, uh, Vale? Yer sure 'bout that?"

The bombardment of questions was a side-effect of his anxiousness. He was bouncing on his feet now, buzzing with energy, grinning ear to ear. "Miss Lyssa, it sure is a small world, innit?"

It was almost cute how his eyes lit up with hope when she talked of her meeting with Sedona. Phoenix's previous suave disappeared and was replaced with a boyish uncertainty and excitement. Maybe Lyssa had been too quick to judge him when they met; Her embarrassment of falling over made her upset quickly, which had clouded her opinion of him. After a while of talking, it was clear that he was gentle with horses, a good teacher, and now he seemed a loyal sibling. Lyssa gave him a warm smile as he talked.

"If I'm honest, I am uncertain with what colour her eyes were.... but I am certain that she was very charismatic, and about that height. And her horse was painted brown and white, similar to Belle here." Lyssa thought of the brown wold she had met. The similarities in personality were very similar between the two canines, so it sounds as if they really could be related.

"Yes I am certain she was living in Mistfell Vale. She and another wolf came to our territory to do trade. We talked for a while as she traded her goods with various members of the pack." She paused a moment to think. "Now, I have never been to the Vale, but I have a general idea where it is located." Lyssa looked up at the sky to gauge the time; There seemed to be enough time for a small detour before going home. "I could direct you where to go for a while, but I would leave so I could be back by nightfall. It will be a bit of a journey." The thought of saying goodbye to this man so early did make her feel a bit sad, but she wasn't sure what else she could do. Lyssa tried her best to hide the ache in her heart as she put on her best friendly smile.

gonna wrap up bc he's EXCITE but let's please have another <3 [000]

He matched her cute smile easily; while under normal circumstances Phoenix was a bit more put-together and not so anxious, Lyssa had instilled in him a certain vein of hope, one he had been yearning for ever since he left the ranch. It was something he was not so sure he'd ever find, but this pretty coyote lady had reignited his drive.

So what if she didn't remember what color her eyes were? It was more than enough for Phoenix; even if he was stretching, he was going to run with it. There was no way it wasn't Sedona. It had to be her.

"Yep, she's definitely got a mare that looks like her," he said quickly, another affirmation that it was indeed his sister. It was incredible, almost too good to be true. And even though he should have approached the prospect with caution, that was all thrown to the wind.

"You sure are gracious, Miss Lyssa," he chuckled, his tail thrumming with energy behind him. "If you'd be so kind, I'd sorely appreciate it." His voice was louder now, the twang intensified, but he was trying to keep it together and not shout the poor woman down.

Without further ado he swung back onto Tohopka's saddle, clicking his tongue and whispering to him quickly to steer the stallion around. "C'mon, we're burnin' daylight!" He laughed again, but his smile faltered for a bit as he again dismounted and jogged to her side.

"Sorry, where're my manners?" As a good gentleman should, he offered his arm to help Lyssa up onto her own steed, and once she was situated he again padded over to the black stallion and hoisted himself up. Toh snorted and stamped a slightly annoyed foot at his master's antics.

"After you, darlin'." He flashed her the most suave, handsome smile he could muster.

The canine was clearly very excited, as he both mounted and dismounted before running over to Lyssa to help her onto Belle. Despite her best efforts, a small giggle escaped her lips as she watched the flustered man. But that giggle quickly fell away as her hand pressed into his, his warmth radiating off him. The moment seemed to slow down as he guided her up into the air. She could help but feel stirred up by his gentlemanly ways. She held his gaze until the moment he dropped her hand.

A flush was still on her cheeks as she waited for Phoenix to mount Toh. Then he gave her the brightest smile she has ever seen on a man. Heart thudding in her chest, she pointed Belle in the directions of the Vale before he caught the look on her face. "Come on then slowpoke!" She yelled over her shoulder as she led her mare into a canter. Soon they were in a full gallop as they headed South.

She found herself laughing as her hair tousled in the wind. The speed filled her with a sense of freedom and carefreeness. At one point she might have even yelled out a "Yeehaw" like she'd heard others do when they were goofing off. Belle seemed to also be enjoying herself. The horse dug her hooves in and let her strong muscles lead the way. Once and a while, she would glance back at the other two to see if they were following, a coy smile on her lips.
