Naerys was just on the way back from another tribe which lives at the north east almost directly at the sea. It has been nice there and indeed she has been able to get some more information. Now not too far away from her home anymore she rested under a giant tree to regain some strength before she continued. Suddenly though Mihna picked on her coat. Quickly Naerys then reached after her bow and readied herself to fight when she heard horses come closer and closer to her direction. Hiding she tried to observe the strangers until she eventually let down her weapon and showed herself. It only were some crows including their commander and the gods knew that in this case she was most likely to stay unharmed. Putting her bow on her back and with Mihna on her shoulder she approached them as they got closer.

The rangers hadn't come back after they had been sent out hunting, only yesterday their horses had came back without their riders. It was most likely that something happened, but to make everyone sure, John had organised a search party, himself leading it. Three of them had been the best rangers the nights watch had. He was riding in front of the group, approaching a giant tree. His eyes narrowed to a figure walking toward them with a hawk at her shoulder. He recognized her at once, giving his men a signal to not attack her. He was glad to see that she still was safe.

Almost whisteling and a smirk on her face Naerys approached the group and only stopped when she stood in front of John. First though she reached for horses scrag and petted it. Horses indeed were wonderful creatures. Not as good as hawks of course but hey, they could take you almost anywhere you want to and that surely was something precious. However not too long after she started caressing the horse she turned her attenion back to the human sitting on it. "Has been quite some time has it crow? Now then, what brings you here? It surely isn´t one of your common routes."

Obviously she had never been close to a horse before. He grinned about the last time they had met each other in the hot spring. "We're looking for some of our rangers," John began. "They didn't return from hunting, only their horses did." He was about to ask if she maybe had seen them, only to be poked by one of the other members. His look was obvious, capture her and try getting information! John shook his head. The look in John's eyes were serious. He turned his look back to Naerys. "Maybe you have seen them by any chance?"

Suprised she raised an eyebrow. Rather sounds like they simply fell of their horses, broke an ankle or sth similar during the progress and are now humpling back. She let go of the horse and walked to Johns side. "If you believe it or not, it seems like you´re the only crow I get to see these days." Quickly she looked around, facing his rangers one by one. Obviously most of them highly disliked her or even worse. Oh if they only knew, she thought as she remembered her meetings with their commander ... especially the last one at the hot spring. "Well you with quite the company. Anyways, what were supposed to do out here? Maybe I can help you find them."

John chuckled. Sure, first time they had met each other alone in the forest, then it was that white walker attack in one of the villages. Then in the warm spring. John was still thankful to the seven that no one had discovered them together in the cave. "They were out hunting, they have been gone for several days. Who knows if something have happened to them!" He had to be sure that the white walkers hadn't found them first. "And your help would be most helpful!" Naerys was a wildling, she knew probably knew this place more better than they did. So he had to get the help he could.

"Hunting? Oh yay in that case they could be everywhere." She replied sarcasticly. What irony, first time she actually was searching for a crow, well more or less, and the chances to find them were very, very, very low. "Do you have some spots where you usually hunt or did they tell you any direction they wanted to head to? And did you already check those places?"

"We've already been checking northwest, and there was no track after them. They were just supposed to head north. And we did check were they normally are supposed to hunt." John had even sent word to the east watch for some help to track the rangers, so they would know if they found them or maybe other dangers, like the white walkers.

She kept quiet for a moment, thinking about options when an idea hit her. "Then why don´t we try northeast? I know a good place for hunting there where they might have ended up and on the way there are some locations where they might have or are still resting."

John nodded, and reached his hand toward hers, the look in his eyes were inviting her to sit on the horse with him. In that way, their trip could be more quicker. "Commander? What are you doing?" one of the other members asked, surprised and annoyed. "I know what I'm doing," John said calmly as he helped Naerys up in the saddle, her sitting in front of him. "Well, lead the way then!" John said.

Smirking at him she took his hand and let her help her to get on the horse while she grinned wickedly at the complaining crow and eventually sticking out her tongue to him. Oh it definitely was great fun to annoy the crows knowing that she is safe from them, at least with John around who would be the most fearfull anyways. It took her a bit before she found a good position but when she finally did she quickly looked around, remembering the track in her mind before she turned around to John. "We need to go straight forward for a while."

John had to use all of his self control to not burst out in laughter when Naerys were sticking her tongue out. He leaned himself closer and whispered in her ear. "You're going to feel very soar after the ride!" He wasn't even joking, when one person were riding a horse for the first time, they would feel very soar down for a time. So it was best to let her know.

Her facial expression completely changed when he warned her about the results of her first ride which most likely won´t be short. Great, she thought, almost panicking and complaining. "Why did I want to help you again?" She replied in a joking tone as she leaned back to him. Actually right now she was sitting quite comfortable with John behind her.

"It's just like when someone just had sex," he whispered to her again and made the horse start to walk. It was the best description he think of. She wouldn't feel so soar for that long. They were on the way, Naerys leading and explaining the way for them.

As he made that comparison Naerys immediately blushed and instincly turned her head away from him. Stupid crow! Trying to focus on leading the group she brought a little distance between her and John. Not much of course but she felt like she at least shouldn´t let her back touch his back more than needed since she feared she would only start to feel very naughty very soon and that surely wouldn´t result in something good, at least now.
They were riding for an hour already, or probably rather even more and indeed slowly but surely felt what John had warned her about. Already thinking about where the next hot spring would be she suddenly got thrown out of her thoughts. Without any warning the horses started to act weirdly by whinning and trembleing like they were afraid to only do one more step. Being back in her leaning position from the start she turned around and took Johns hand, whispering towards his ear. "Something seems very wrong. Should I take a look?"

Something seemed to be wrong indeed. "I think it's better if we look together!" John said and got down before he helped her getting down from the horse. As they walked together, they found a place and the tracks. It was obvious that there had been a fight and there was even blood. The eagle to Naerys screamed, it had found an arm, with an black glove. By the seven! John thought.

Naerys had to admit she was relieved and that not only a little not to have to go alone. Sure, she was armed and knew how to defend herself very well but ... some weird feeling told her that with John she was safe and that he protect her. Just then she remembered with a smile that he even already saved her life.
Just before she was getting lost in thought again though they found the first tracks and indeed something was very wrong and surely highly deadly. Not long after they found what seemed to be a former battlefield by all the blood she could even hear Minha scream when she had found the first of many other body pieces lying more and less obvious around the ground. She took some steps back, putting her hand on Johns chest as was standing close in front of him now. "Should we get the others or leave?"

He had seen many disgusting things in his life, but this was the most disgusting scene he had even seen in his life. He even found some pieces of black clothes. It was indeed one of his men who was dead. He rose up when Naerys approached and placed her hand on his chest. He wanted to find out what happened here. "We should get the others!" he started when he heard the others of his men blow in his horn. Three blows. The white walkers! Seven hells! John thought as he and Naerys started to run back.

Irritated by the sound of the horn and it´s meaning she looked questioning at john just before he had taken her hand to run back to the other crows. "What´s going on now?" Naerys asked before she could see the answer with her own eyes. A white walker! Getting her bow ready she froze in a moment as one of the men got something ripped out of his body while he got frozen to death while the others were forced to watch and shortly after fight for their own life. She shot some arrows, each from a diffrent position to distract the walker which helped at least at first for a short moment. Then, finally the white walker got taken down though to her moving she didn´t know who exactly killed it but therefore she could see something else, something definitely bad and deadly. As if the just killed white walker wasn´t enough now two others were approaching them. By the gods, if she would survive this she definitely will request for something out of that so called dragon glass.

Seeing one of his men being killed, and turning into one of the wights. It was frightening. But John had learned to face his fears during his training, and as the commander he had to protect the others of the nights watch. He was quick, grabbing his dagger made of dragon glass as he had to fight against his lost comrade. He was very grateful when Naerys started shooting her arrows against the white walkers. When it finally was dead, then two others approached. This fight wasn't going to be easy, he could only pray to the seven that they would survive it.

Naerys cursed while trying to make some fire with the material she has been carrying with her for a situation like this. Please, please dear gods let them finish the walkers and wight before any of them reaches me. Turning her cursing into preying her hands were shaking quite heavy while she lit a piece of fabric on fire she had wrapped around her arrow. She took a deep breath, doing her best to calm herself down before she shot at the wight, luckily without missing him. For a moment she smirked. Wight down, "only" the white walkers to go! At least that was what she was thinking before she heard another painfull scream, shortly followed by the disgusting sound of a body getting ripped into pieces leaving nothing of the crow alive. But then to surely all of the remaining crows reliefe as well as hers the sound of breaking glass was hearable. Now only one walker seemed to be left. Sadly, not many more crows were left as well. Almost terrified Naerys turned around to look after John, happy to see him still alive before she noticed the white walker standing now aside her. She screamed though covered her mouth quickly as she backed off, trying to get away from the walker. Oh she definitely had no need to die just yet. She still had good years and many of them to come. Not to mention her plans to get pass the wall and well, who know, maybe even start a family. Dying caused by a white walker however surely wasn´t in her life agenda.

John cursed as another member fell victim to the white walkers and turned to a wight. There weren't many of this group of the nights watch now. He was starting to get very furious now. They barely had gotten some new men, and now they started to get fewer again. He turned around when he heard someone scream. It was Naerys, and a white walker right beside her. He ran as fast as he could toward her, tightening his grip on his dagger made of dragon glass. He almost stumbled in the snow, but he made it just in time. When the white walker tried to hurt her, he stabbed the white walker and dragged Naerys away. "Are you all right? Did it hurt you?" he asked.

As the quickest and most suitable reply she could think of in that moment she grabbed John by his coat to give him a kiss. Indeed she really started to like him. The moment she let go of him again though the last remained white walker finally got killed as well and nobody else seemed to have died, yet. Now that the danger of the undead was dealt with the "danger" of free folk people seemed to have turned back into the crows memories since now one of them walked right up to Naerys, obviously not amused about her standing that close to their commander or maybe even because her appearance at all. Grabing her by her arm he roughly pulled her to him and let out his frustation on her.

The best reply ever! He admitted that he was relieved that Naerys was all right. Everything seemed to be okay for now. Just then, one of the other members of his group marched toward them and pulled Naerys away from John. He got angry when he was letting his frustration out on her. "Stop it!" he commanded, grabbing Naerys and stood in front of her. "Why?" the other one asked. "She just led us straight to the white walkers!" John shook his head. "It wasn't her fault!" John began. He was about to say that they had found the missing raiders, but then he got punched in his face. He started to bleed from his nose, but he ignored as he defended himself from his furious comrade.

"What?" She asked in a very high tone which represented her anger. Oh this crow better starts running! "That´s nonsense and you know that. Besides I even got rid of the wight for you and this was not even the first time!" She replied narrowing her eyes at the crow.
