The recent events had cast a veil of uncertainty over the aging warrior’s path, twisting the circumstances contemplated in her schemes until these were no longer viable as a means toward success. The golden tigress had been a formidable woman who valued strength and power in all its shapes. She had rewarded those who proved worthy through hard work and tangible accomplishments, but the former Hierophant…

From what Kaeli had seen and heard Elphaba was a creature of cult and schemes, an opportunistic being that forget alliances and broke them on a daily basis, and rewarded only those who served her personal ends. She couldn’t bring herself to bend for one such as the she-Revilis, she had to respect her for that and respect had to be earned.

Amongst thistle and rocks she walked in proud defiance. She would attend her self-imposed duties despite the increasing pressure of younger individuals trying to compete for the same job. She may not be as vivacious as the juniors but experience was a more reliable weapon than natural youth. She could teach the new generation the arts of war and fight by their side for a couple years more. Of course she needed willing students for this purpose and hence why she had chosen to visit the ruins that day.

Acidic eyes searched through the residences, hoping for a sign of activity that may lead her in the right direction. Her sour mood had started to give out at last. Perhaps that day would prove to be a fruitful one, one from many to come.

Calla and Chester left with the caravan and Helena was there to see them away with the other Salsolans. Riding besides them on Nani with Phobos following behind until they had passed beyond the borders and disappeared into the wild world beyond. The walk back was slow and all the much quieter for chattering Chester's absence.

The non-slave man tried his best to fill in the silence with talk of his own. Phobos had become a step more bold since his abrupt release to freedom. He would sometimes speak with a freer mind and give his thoughts and opinions without prompting, and through long association she paid attention to his words. Musing silently or commenting altruistically.

The talk at length switched over to the new Boss and the sudden shift in allegiances. Helena was commenting to the big, black male that she ought to make a trip herself to find new gems for the Boss to trade as they walked close to a lesser ranked Salsolan that Helena barely paid any attention too, other than a nodded greeting.

The sound of distant chattering caught her attention. From what she could make out of the conversation before the pair came into view she realized they were coming back from watching the caravan off. Displeasure tugged her lips into a sneer at the thought of the former Queen’s readily departure. Officially the Kingdom was at the mercy of a witch’s whims now that the tigress had chosen to take her influence away from the heart of the Kingdom.

Curiosity turned into boldness as casual greetings were exchanged. Her eyes traveled up to the mounted woman’s mismatched gaze. ”Pardon me but is it true that the tigress has left the territory with the caravan?” Disbelief laced her words, softened only by the courtesy she wielded like a protective shield. Toxic orbs shifted toward the woman’s darker companion, a brute of a man she knew had been a slave until the recent events. Was he grateful for his newly granted freedom? Would he adapt and become an asset to Salsola or would he come to be disgrace to his former owners and of course the Queen?

”It is a shame she won’t be around to mentor our young Boss.” Perhaps she should have waited longer to better asses the Arbiter’s loyalties, but at that point her disapproval for the recent changes had become a knot in her throat she was eager to rid herself of. Perhaps she sought assurance by learning her views were shared, or she needed to be encouraged into acceptance by a different point of view. Whatever fueled her recklessness she had started to press the matter too deep with only a few sentences, and the repercussions would surely be severe.
