PostSubject: Finding Something Unexpected (Tag: Juliana)   Sun May 03, 2015 6:19 pm

While Kayley usually liked to visit far-off places, she didn't mind staying close to home, which was what she was doing today.  She decided that her horse needed some exercise, and so was riding her in the woods close to her home.  She wasn't alone this time, however.  She had decided to invite her mother along, feeling they hadn't been spending as much time together as they normally did.  Then again, Kayley had been busy lately, what with her sword lessons and all.  She was determined to become good at fighting, and spent hours practicing, even when Amelia wasn't around.  She just hoped she was making progress.  Even now, as she rode alongside her mother, her mind was repeating a set of moves Amelia had taught her yesterday.

Juliana enjoyed the fresh air and the natural enviroment, not to mention of her beloved Kayley. Especially after she hasn´t been feeling too well the past days which made her take things slow, just in case since the plague still was going on and she wanted to prevent herself to get sick as much as possible. However after some time she eventually tried to start a conversation. "Lost in thoughts again I see? What´s on your mind dear?" She asked with a gentle smile.

"No doubt it's her swordplay lessons." Proteus guessed, laughing. He was following them a few paces back on his destrier. He wanted to keep an eye on Juliana, despite her insistence that she would be careful. She had been out of sorts for many days and he worried about her, as he always would. "I hear she does nothing but eat, sleep, and train these days." He was glad she had found something to be passionate about. He remembered when he'd been as involved in his lessons as a boy, often staying up all night to practice. "Don't forget to have a breather, Kayley. No sense in working yourself ragged."

Kayley turned around as her father joined them.  She just gave a sheepish grin in response to what he said.  He knew her well.  "I know.  I just want to get good, you know?  Every other warrior I've met has been training for years.  I feel like I have to catch up."  Granted, Kayley wasn't looking to fight in tournaments or something, but still, she wanted to pose at least some kind of threat if she came upon an adversary.  She didn't want to stay a weak little beginner for too long.  She wanted to get good as soon as possible.

Hearing her husband voice out of nowhere made Juliana scream in suprise for a moment only to give him an angry glare right after. Didn´t I tell you that you can stay home? However shortly after her anger went away with a sigh of hers and she smiled about Kayleys spirit. "Proteus is right. Besides everything needs time dear though I´m surely you will improve in no time. Just ... don´t overdo it please."

Proteus pulled his horse alongside Juliana's, and gave her an apologetic smile and pat on the hand. He hadn't meant to scare her, but he didn't want to leave them alone. Besides, he needed the fresh air himself and he had time to take it in. "I'm sorry, love." He looked back at Kayley and added, "You will catch up eventually, but it's best to have patience with yourself. No one's a master swordsman overnight."

Kayley knew her parents were right.  Working herself to the bone wasn't going to make her become a better swords woman.  She would just become an exhausted mess.  "Okay.  I won't," she promised.  Hopefully, that would ease her parents' worries.  Her horse shook its head and gave a snort.  She rubbed its neck, thinking it wanted attention.  But she glanced up when she heard a noise.  It sounded high-pitched, kind of like whining.  Was that what the horse was hearing?  "Do you hear that?" she asked, turning back to her parents.

Proteus at up in the stirrups and scanned the area around them for trouble, his hand on his sword at once. He heard the noise too, but he didn't see the source. "You two stay here. I'll see what it is." He said, then nudged his horse forward. The noise seemed to be somewhere ahead of them, down by the small stream.

Hearing the noise as well Juliana closed her eyes to hear it better before opening them again as Proteus just was about to leave them behind to go after its source. Now left behind with Kayley right next to her, Juliana turned her attention to her as she straightened again, ready to continue riding any minute when she thought to have discovered the noises origin. "Come, this definitely is nothing we should be afraid of. It rather is most likely the other way round* She said, riding after Proteus to the small stream.

"No harm in being cautious." Proteus answered. He dismounted on the bank and turned around, still looking. When he heard the noise again, he dropped his gaze to the damp earth beneath him. His eyes lit up at the sight of a pup hiding beneath a bush. "Oh, you two will want to have a look at this." he said, grinning. He sheathed his sword and crouched down, pushing the bush's thin branches out of his way. The pup seemed just barely old enough to be weaned. Proteus looked around for any sign of the mother or siblings, but the only tracks in the mud were his and his horse's.

"Bit of bad luck, eh pup?" he muttered, reaching down to pet it's head. It regarded him warily, but didn't snap at him. It was shivering and covered head to toe in mud. Proteus scooped it up and wrapped it in his cloak. "There, that's better."

Kayley watched her father get off his horse and investigated the noise.  Her mother didn't think it was anything dangerous, and she proved to be right as Proteus returned with a dire-wolf pup in his arms.  Kayley's heart welled up in sympathy.  What was a pup doing out here all alone?  Had its mother abandoned it or something?  She got off her horse to get a better look at it.  It was a bit small and covered in mud.  "Oh, you poor little thing," she said.

Juliana got off her horse as well as it turned out that the noise came from a baby dire wolf. Approaching both, her husband as well as the pup she immediately felt sad for it. It was so little though yet left alone in the dirt to die all by itself after what she assumed hardly more than few months or rather some weeks of life. Even though the little was was still more than dirty she carefully as well as gently stroke his tiny head after she let it sniff on her hand for a moment. Looking up again she first looked at Proteus, then Kayley before turning back to Proteus again. "Do you think what I think, love?"
