Walking a tightrope

Silence make the demons come alive.

After rescuing Abaddon from the clutches of evil, things seemed to swing even further out of control. Kalfou had been poking and prodding, pushing his ideals onto her. He had begun to see her as weak and not be respected. Despite her ability to kill two full grown male Luperci, with the dark child's help, the demon seemed to have found a niche to root himself deeper within her. With Lux's influence, she had begun to surrender and the dark energy enveloped her like a warm, comfy blanket. River would not allow a wannabe demon tell her she was weak, she would not allow him to degrade her. She would prove him wrong.

Allies, or so her father said. Casa di Cavalieri, the pack The Order decided to reside by because of their kind nature and selflessness during the war. What made them so kind, so selfless? River was curious. After Minerva came by the camp unannounced, River thought she might do the same in a bold display of false friendship. A voice in the back of her mind, called for help, with the demon that plagued her. Outwardly, she screamed violence and mischief. A large grin was splayed across her face, and narrowed, dazed eyes focused forward as she marched towards the border.

When she could smell the potent combination of Cavaliers at the border, she stopped and began to walk along the invisible line without crossing it. River wasn't stupid, but she did tend to bite off a little more than she could chew a times. What is it that calls you here child? It's dangerous to play with fire when you're standing in brush. River chuckled and shook her head dismissing the spirit with the wave of her hand. I'm here because I want to know what's so great about the Cavaliers. The Order speaks highly of them, but the girl that came to camp before Maelyx left, she was anything but strong. There was a madness in her eye, but she held herself with all the grace in the world.

Hips swayed as she sauntered along the borders, tail tipping from side to side as she walked. The demon's content growl rumbled in her ears and she could feel his maw spread wide in a grin. So be it. It seemed she had awed him with her bold display. Perfect.

time is valuable thing, watch it fly by as the pendulum swings

The dark huntress patrolled the borders aimlessly. She felt that they needed checking in on and put her own scent there are well to freshen them up and mingle her scent into the scent of Casa Di Cavalieri. Emerald shards gazed about her surroundings. The sun was high. Her fur burned with the heat. Today she wore a leather chest plate that she fashioned herself from a deer pelt. Her hair was tied back in a braided bun with some stands of beads hanging down in her face. They clicked and swayed with her confident strides. Armed with her knife and her own brute strength, the cavalier was a formidable character. Muscles rippling beneath her battle scarred pelt and dappled in light that bled through the leaves above, she walked with grace and power in every step.

The tall woman could scent a newcomer a little ways off. Her nose was not as sharp as most, but she could pinpoint a scent from others in the lush summer forest. Spotting the loner, a female like herself, Khyren showered her pace and walked along the border in a calm approach. "Who might you be?" She asked. The womans voice was low, but feminine with a faded Russian accent. Her face was expressionless and she remained stoic in the presence of the loner "You are offly close to the border..." Her green gaze one of suspicion and blazed with fire-like intensity.

River Grim
Silence make the demons come alive.

The putrid smell of the self righteous Cavaliers brought her to a halt. Even now, she could remember how Anathema's borders smelled, just like home. It had always been comforting with just a hint of chaos, whether it be the blood of a freshly initiated Anatheman or remnants from a past squabble. The Cavalier's borders smelled complete opposite of that. It actually made her a bit nauseous. She knew they had family here, connections, allies, but she couldn't bring herself to see them as anything more than disgusting. Why she felt that way, she couldn't really pinpoint. Though, she had a feeling it must have something to do with the spirit that drifted about her and clung to her essence.

It didn't take long for someone to approach. It was a dark woman, caked in self righteous stench. She must have been patrolling, just in case something like this happened. There was nothing exciting about the stranger, her pelt boring and expression emotionless. River did note the scars on her visage, something River had very few of. A comment was made that caused River's maw to upturn in an unruly smile.

I'm River. She said first, looking to her right at to what most would perceive as nothing. For her, it was her spirit, fully manifested with his shadowy chin rest on her hand as she gazed at him softly before turning back to the other. Oh, I know. I got curious. Which Cavalier are you? The stormy witch questioned, placing her other hand on her hip as she shifted her weight. It was ironic. Her sisters lived just past these invisible borders and yet she was an intruder here. It'd been quite some time since she saw them, though River rarely thought of them with any fondness. She did miss them though.

The dark huntress was slightly taken aback by the newcomer's attitude. River seemed quite contemptuous and slightly infuriating. None the less, she realized it was a bit uncivil of her to go threatening a newcomer as soon as she sees one. Highly confident this woman was, maybe she was a visitor. One emerald eye twitched in agitation, but she let out a small sigh and a fake smile whilst her eyes remained as cold as stone. "Excuse my behavior, I am Khyren," She spoke, her speech deep, rich and smooth like molten chocolate--or like the blood which flowed through her veins. "Nice to meet you, River." The female warrior lied blatantly. She knew from the moment the words first exited River's maw, they were not going to get along.

"Are you here to visit? For anything or anyone in particular?" The smoky wolf questioned soon thereafter, one hand raised in question which soon fell to her hip.

Khyren wasn't much of a people person, but she tried being diplomatic as that was the cavalier way. No doubt she wasn't very good at it, but if all goes well maybe this River would flow away from their borders without incident. It seemed this woman was more the type to cascade into white waters then flow with ease around others. No harm in trying to play nice. As battle-hardened, as she was, she hated fighting. All it did was bring on more pain and chaos into her already broken life which she was only now trying to piece together. Her suspicion and obvious distrust in others may come off as provoking, but she was just afraid, always afraid.

Thinking about all of this, her eyes flicked momentarily in the direction the woman had been looking, only to see nothing. It was odd, but she didn't think anything of it other then this newcomer being unfriendly and not giving eye contact.

OOC: Sorry for the ridiculous wait. Please forgive me. <3

River would be a fool to not pick up the slight agitation about the dark Cavalier warrior. She was used to reading others' behavior. Although it was usually males she studied the behavior of, it was not hard to pick up something so obvious even if she was trying to hide it. It only brought entertainment to the stormy summoner. She'd play along, for now.

The Cavalier introduced herself, in a forced, kind manner. One that made River dip her head in a forced show of humbleness. That was how she expected to be greeted by the chivalrous Cavaliers. This one was different though, jumping to conclusions like a sheep blindly jumping off a cliff. If they weren't at Casa's borders, she would have met her doom. Kalfou's purr like growl rumbled in her ear, sending a shiver down her spine. He always loved when she caused trouble. Mismatched hues glanced in his direction nonchalantly. Only the most perceptive would sense his presence.

I thought I might visit my sisters, friends, past leader. They all reside within these borders. There is no point in seeing them though. They have nothing to offer me. They've found a life here. River took another step towards the borders, eyes scanning over Khyren as her tongue slipped out between slender jaws to lap at her nose. I, on the other hand, live alone. She sauntered even closer, hips swaying back and forth with undeniable femininity. Do you like it here Khyren? Do the Cavaliers treat you kindly? All her questions and ramblings were for nothing at all, she was only here because she thought it might be fun, because Kalfou thought it might be fun.

The demon summoner's tail swayed gently back and forth behind her. Her body always remained relaxed, non threatening. She wandered how close she could get to Casa's borders before this self righteous female got her nickers in a twist. She was already upset, it probably wouldn't take much. River had nothing but a dagger strapped to her thigh, hidden under the garbs draped haphazardly over her thick form, accentuating her figure.
