[ 464 ] » For Lux. White Plains, vague time of day. It's light out though ~ Szenne's pretending to hunt :D

Anger scorched her mood every time she thought of her master or anyone else belonging to Anathema for that matter. It was time to go. It was definitely time to make her last move and get the hell out of there. It was coming to the point where she’d rather be away from everyone doing her chores than bullshitting her way through the day with the risk of running into someone. It had come to the point where she wondered everyday whether one more fight would get her expelled from the pack or hunted like a dog. The fucked up part? She’d welcome either of them. She loved a good hunt, and whether she was the hunter or the prey, she was confident enough that she would be able to get away. She knew Halifax like the back of her hand. She knew the trees out there well, too. She could run, disappear, and use the forest to her advantage.

With her bow in hand, she traipsed through the very forest that surrounded Anathema. With an arrow nocked, but it aiming toward the ground, she prowled through the dead foliage in search of a deer she had seen flit through the trees a few moments before. Pale green eyes scanned the trees for movement with every intent to find the deer, but no intention of killing it. It was one of her rebellious days. Instead of blatantly ignoring her chores, though, she decided to pretend she was doing them.

The sky was overcast and shadowed the forest in gloom and made it feel just that much colder. The breeze was icy and the dead leaves crunched and crackled under her feet. There was no escaping the noise she was already making, no matter how lightly she placed her feet. Luckily, at least, she was downwind and the doe she pursued couldn't smell her on the breeze.

Cream-colored paws carefully stepped through the trees, fluidly moving around the skinny trunks of the saplings that dotted the forest just outside the Village. There had been a thin stream that wound down from the Caverns, but during most of the winter months, it remained frozen solid. The ice shocked her paw pads as she stepped on it, but it didn’t crack. It was solid. Between the trees to her right, she could see the doe flapping its ears and timidly stepping through the trees.

Slowly, Szenne inched towards it. She still hadn’t readied her bow, though. It was more of a contest to see how close she could get before it ran off, and so far she was winning… until there was a loud crunch of dead leaves behind her. The doe’s head shot up, spotted Szenne, and bolted, and the Abdiel cursed under her breath. ”Shit!"

(433) Sorry for such a long wait ;.;

Lux was living life on a sort of high. He had at last become mates with his companion and best friend, he had completed work on his house at long last, and everything seemed to finally be settling into place around him. His skills as a builder and repairman were growing quickly, Avinalora had offered the black beast a concoction of herbs which had aided remarkably in alleviating the giants perpetual joint pain, and he felt wild and free and powerful again like he had when he was but a year old, a giant beast with nothing in the way of an aching body to stop him from living his life to the fullest.

And now that the pain in Lux's giant frame had subsided so drastically, the charcoal furred Seere would take it by the reins and live it if he could help it. Loping down the hall the short was from his bed room to the front door, Lux shifted down into his halfling Secui form, looking as much like a bear as he ever had, the bulky four legged beast charged his way out past the village and towards the plains. He wanted to have a feast later on to celebrate with his mate and what better way than to hunt some white tailed deer? Anathema seemed to have a fair supply of the skittish beasts so long as they weren't over-hunted.

Entering the woods which surrounded the white plains, Lux began surveying the surrounding territory for a suitable target, golden eyes scanning the herd for an outlier, perhaps one who was old or sickly or lame. Picking his way forwards on careful, albeit giant paws, the dark brute began to creep forwards, his focus so trained on the target and goal at hand that the massive Secui forgot to keep an eye on where he was placing his feet. One paws with massive claws hit a rocky downwards slope, it's surface coated with ice, and suddenly Lux found himself charging down the rest of the way to prevent himself from falling onto his ass.

With wide eyes, the male went perfectly still and hoped that no one had been around to see that, but the bolting of a deer to his side and an exclamation of a curse word told him that his blunder had just ruined somebody else's hunt. Golden eyes glancing to the side, he saw an earthen female with a bow, her hair long and waving, and Lux suddenly wished that he could hide, even if she hadn't known by then that he was there, his sheer size made it impossible to conceal himself completely there.

Szenne watched as the doe disappeared into the skinny woods. It became smaller and smaller the more it hopped, the further it hopped. Snapping her head around to the noise then, Szenne wasn’t surprised to find a blundering Anatheman at her heels. Meeting the yellow eyes of albeit a new Anatheman, this only added more fuel to Szenne’s fire. She rolled her eyes and hastily returned the arrow to its quiver and the bow to hang over her shoulder.

”Can’t even fuckin’ hunt without one of ya idiots disturbin’ my peace!” she snarled, looking down at her bow then, making sure the string rested comfortably between her breasts. ”And then when I go back empty-handed, who gets the blame? Me!” Ok, so maybe she was exaggerating a little. Lukos was annoyed these days when she had nothing for him to eat, but he didn’t quite fly into a rage (like she had just done) and blame her incompetence. She liked to think that he knew she was more skilled at hunting than he was.

”I guess I can’t really blame ya, though. Look at ya, ya blunderin’ idiot. Of course ya can’t keep yaself from rollin’ down a hill! Look at the size of ya!” Szenne was in a pretty bad mood, and mixed with that, she was seriously considering causing a major disturbance to get kicked out from Anathema to gain her freedom. Then, of course, that would leave Ronan in his predicament still, but she wasn’t thinking too clearly at that moment. Hell, she hadnt been thinking clearly for a while, but luckily she wasn’t a creature of impulse. She didn’t feed into what she felt like doing so easily.

Ignoring the fact that she hadnt even really been hunting the deer, Szenne turned away from the large Luperci. ”Guess I’ma just have to find another suitable deer for the Atheed’s dinner.” She emphasized Atheed hoping that would spring him into action to hunt the doe down for her for his sudden bout of stupidity and inconsideration. She turned away from him then, taking the bow from her shoulder and an arrow from the quiver, and then began walking in the direction the doe ran.

(000) Ooc text here.

Any feeling the dark giant had had of repentance or embarrassment shattered nearly instantly as soon as the earthen colored woman opened her mouth. Annoyed, he was annoyed nearly instantly, and the thought of simply killing the woman crossed his mind in a flash of darkness that betrayed itself across his broad face for but an instant before he suppressed it. He was not a killer... Not anymore.

With a narrowing of his golden eyes, the gruff male let out a shallow growl and spoke in the most deadpan tone he could muster, "You're right, ya can't blame me. Maybe if you'da shot the damn thing while you were standin there close enough to smack it's ass this wouldn'ta happened, hm?" The dark giant shot right back without missing a beat, his hackles raising slowly making the giant, who already dwarfed Szenne even in this smaller form, appear even bigger than he was.

The dark Seere calmed himself down quickly however at the mention of the word Atheed. it sounded familiar, and when spoken, only one grey face came to mind. "So you're a slave then, huh? Not a very good one it seems like." The dark brute stated bluntly, no longer feeling any need to pull his punches. "Ya'know if you're lookin to pawn your work off onto someone else the least you could do it say 'please'." He added in a mocking tone.

[ 000 ] » LOL Lux's response had me rollingggg xDDDD

Sure, the dark Anatheman was much bigger than her, but Szenne didn’t care. She fought enemies bigger than him. It was unknown whether she won those fights or not – but what did that matter? What mattered is that she fought them, didn’t back down because of how tiny she was compared to them. Lux was no different. So, even as she mouthed off to him, criticizing him for his size and ungracefulness, and his temper rose, she could care less. She ignored the words he spoke to her, knowing what she was really doing so close to the deer, but feeling like she needed to take her anger and frustration out on someone else.

She carefully stepped over a fallen log, and whirled around at him. ”I ain’t tellin ya shit!” She growled, green eyes piercing him with the few feet of difference between them. If he thought she was going to bow down and tell him pretty please with a cherry on top, he was gravely mistaken.

”How do ya get slave from huntin for somebody else anyway?” she grumbled back at him, not even throwing in the fact that if the Atheed told him to hunt, he would have had to oblige too without question. Though, of course, she neither confirmed that he was right, nor denied that he was wrong. If anything, her curiosity might’ve even given it away a little more.
