Rocking in the treetops all day long

The sun will come out, wait and see

OOC: Prompt: It's dusk, and songbirds are flying overhead. Your character has just run into a tree. Come and help Nora after her little accident. +300 words.

Everything seemed to have smoothed out from the most recent events. Quinn had been found after all, and it was so good to know that she had not perished as all of them thought she might have. It seemed to put everyone else at ease, and it gave her the time to actually get back to enjoying the world around her. Between the training and her picking up for some hunting, she had returned to the one thing she enjoyed the most...

Exploring.

It was already getting later in the day. It was amazing how much time passed when she was spending it moving around Casa's lands. Then again, perhaps she should head back to the Courthouse. She had been out less frequently at night, finding it a good time to spend with Rumpa. Both of them were already about to turn in for the night, and it gave them a small window of time to hang out before they eventually fell asleep.

It really was nice to have her friend back with him... just a shame to hear that his plans to move to the Court had not been able to pan out. At least he still had her here.

Nora's head turned up to the sky as she heard the call of the songbirds overhead. Guess they were getting ready to turn in as well, giving one last song before they did so. She had been doing well along the path she was on until...

THUNK

The tan girl staggered back, green eyes peering forward at the tree she had managed to hit. Guess the songs had distracted her so much that she lost track of where she was heading. Still, she gave a small chuckle at herself, deciding to stop walking now as she listened to the birds rather than risking running into another tree.

OOC :: Give seester.
Words→ 315

Nayavota found herself wandering the woods near Fort Kingsbury, her muscles sore from a light, but long training session. Her usual regimen was out of the question—too much fast, stomach-turning movement—so she’d gone back to basics for a couple of hours. Naya glanced up at the orange-tinged sky and sighed. It was getting dark, and tired songbirds were singing the day’s last songs.

Rolling her shoulders with a quiet crack, the pale Officer paused to get her bearings; it was hard to get genuinely lost in Casa, even at night, but it was easy to get turned around while distracted. As much as Naya wanted to wander aimlessly while worrying about the future, it probably wasn’t a good idea; Mama and Papa were keeping a closer eye on her than usual, no doubt because of her well-kept, but increasingly obvious secret.

Nayavota could go from “too nauseated to stand” to “eating her weight in cooked meat and berries” within an hour. She wasn’t sleeping well, and she’d toss and turn for hours before falling asleep in strange, painful-looking positions. Something was going on, and it didn’t take a healer to figure out what.

Movement caught Naya’s eye and pulled her from her thoughts. She smiled nervously when she spotted Nora between the trees; her sister always had a knack for cheering her up, regardless of the cause, but she was dangerously observant. Would she be worried? Disappointed? Excited?

Nayavota turned to greet Nora, but a painful-sounding thunk stopped her. The green-eyed girl staggered backward from the tree she’d smacked into and a loud, surprised laugh escaped Naya’s mouth before she could stop herself. ”Are you okay?” she called out, giggling as she limped over to Nora’s side.

That was one way of cheering her up, Nayavota supposed.

OOC: Yay sister. +300 words.

Nora couldn't believe she had been so distracted to have something like this happen to her. In all the time she had been exploring, this seemed to have been the first time something like this had happened. Good thing it hadn't happened when she had done some climbing or even when she was in one of the more cautious locations of Casa. She had more common sense than to do something like that.

At least bumping into a tree was something minor. She couldn't think of going to someone and having to explain to them that she had slipped or lost her balance in one of the former areas.

The tan girl's head turned to the sound of laughing. She could not believe someone had seen her run into the tree, and of all the people in Casa, it had to be her sister that saw it happen. Even so, she brushed it off, giving a laugh herself before she found herself sitting along the earth, "Yeah, I'm fine. Just got distracted listening to the birds. It won't happen again."

Patting the ground next to her, she gave a bit smile to the silver woman, "Why don't you join me? It'll be nice to listen to their songs before night comes. We can then go back to the Courthouse together."

It would be nice to spend some time with her sister again. She and Cedric had spent some time together, and she had spent a fair amount more with Rumpa as of late, but she couldn't recall spending much time with Nayavota since they had gotten together to work on the wooden box that had been give to her father. This would be good for the both of them, and it wouldn't result in another accident.
