Moonlight Stroll (Invierno)
« on: November 27, 2016, 10:26:21 AM »

The sun had long set over the forest home of Stoneclaw, the night alive with frogs and crickets. Cool weather was settling in and soon the forest would be quiet, but for now the creatures of the night still sang to the stars that twinkled high above the canopy of massive red woods.

All his life Nyx had felt huge, larger than most other cubs, and now as an adult he was the largest feline in the pride. But the trees made him feel so small. Yellow eyes gazed up as he walked, feeling great peace in his heart as he led Invierno to the place he had found earlier that day. Surely she would not be so quiet as him, but he had grown so used to her antics that it became as natural as the ferns that rubbed his sides as he passed.

He had told her nothing about where he was taking her, only that it could be of use to her as a healer. Surely her mind was racing with possibilities, but as he had never even seen on before, he didn't think she could even begin to guess what he had in store for her. The special place would not be hers alone, as it was still in the pride lands nad belonged to everyone, but somehow he still felt it was a gift to her in particular.

Nyx glanced back at Vi. "Keeping up?" he asked, half tempted to carry her just so they could get there faster.

The sun had set and she'd woken up from a nap, she'd been keeping busy, gathering herbs and sorting them, being a bit worried over being a newly appointed Mage, wondering how she'd go about telling Tall Dark and Handsome about it, hehe. She loafed about for a while but, the sound of paws and the sight of Nyx had her up in a flash. He said there was something he wanted to show her so naturally she was all for it! Into the forest they went and she was thankful she was a cat. IT was dark and the trees made the smallest kitty feel like a tiny ant.

She was bouncing along humming a silly little tune she'd obviously made up since there was no such thing as a radio.... Yet... haha. She was trying to think of what this thing could be, for him to surprise her it must be special.

"Ohohoh! Is it a cave full of pretty sparkling crystals!?" Pretty things made others feel better, right, riiiiiiiiiiiiight?

She'd blurt out, tossing yet another guess his way. Hm... She'd been so obsessed with figuring out what the surprise was that she'd forgotten all about telling him that thing... What was it again? Oh! Right! promotion!!

"Oh hey, Nyx! Nyx! I got a surprise for you too!" She'd say bonding ahead from her spot near his tummy to up by his head. "I'm a Mage!" SURPRISE NYX!!! See! Little Fluff was good for something after all! Tehehe. "Are you surprised?" She'd playfully question before giggling her boundless energy probably a good thing at this point because she was bouncing about and jogging to keep pace with his strides.

"Hmmm.... OOOOOOOO!!! Didja find like and endless supply of food? Is that it?" She'd giggle, bouncing on ahead of him a bit, tripping. Of course. And falling with a laugh. She was back up in seconds and soon near his tail, bounce, bounce, bat, bounce, bat, bounce, bounce..... She giggled, moving back to jogging by his side, smiling up at him, nearly going face first into a tree, oops.

Well, this was certainly strange, the fact she'd finally admitted to herself at least, that maybe she really sorta kinda liked Nyx in a more than friends way but, she'd not tell him. Nope. There was like no way he'd ever wanna be with her... Right? Eh, it was strange but, she was happy just being out and about with him. When there were gaps in trees, she'd steal a look up, smiling like a cub at the sight of the stars. There was a pretty big gap here and she paused, looking up with that same goofy grin.

"Keeping up?"

"Yup!" She'd reply, looking to him and bounding toward him. She wouldn't admit she was getting a little tired or that his back was looking mighty comfy right now... Ooooooo~! Maybe she'd finally be able to snuggle into his mane if she got a ride on his back. Hehe.... Probably the softest darn fluffy mane in the whoooooooooole pride. Yup. Wait. Stop thinking about things like that... lol... Silly girl.

"It feels like we've been walking forever, are you sure we're still at home?" She'd half tease, bumping against his leg playfully as they moved along. Maybe she could start the oh so fun game of: Are we there yet? soon. Haha! See how long it'd take before he rolled his eyes and picked her up. tehehehehehe! Soon but, not quiet yet.

Taking it step by step
We’ll always move ahead
Our love is growing red
Need me more
Need you more
You fall down seven more times
I’ll be there seven, eight, nine
As we keep trying, we’ll find
You’re always gonna be there too
We’re always singing the same tune
Every day from now on

Vi pranced around him as always, an endless ball of energy, spewing questions with every bound. Of course he had learned it was better to let her ask what she wanted and then answer in the second of silence that followed. If she gave him that long anyway.

"Ohohoh! Is it a cave full of pretty sparkling crystals!?"

"No." He said plainly but not in a harsh way. She was a lady of many words, but he was a man of few.

"Oh hey, Nyx! Nyx! I got a surprise for you too! I'm a Mage! Are you surprised?"

"No. Not surprised. You were a diligent Cleric. The title was rightfully yours." He said, though not sure why this was considered a surprise for him. A promotion only served her, not him. He didn't strive for that kind of thing. High rank and power. Better to let those who cared about it handle it in his opinion. Even with this line of thinking, he was proud of her for doing well and spoke the truth about her derserving it.

"Hmmm.... OOOOOOOO!!! Didja find like and endless supply of food? Is that it?"

"If you eat plants the forest itself is endless. But no." He walked on with her bating around his tail like a cub.

"It feels like we've been walking forever, are you sure we're still at home?"

"We're almost there." Nyx said as they came to a mass of ferns, taller than Vi and too thick to see through. "Here." A massive paw parted the ferns to reveal a massive area filled with strange tiered hot springs. The white travertine terraces glistened bright in the moonlight and even now it was obvious that the waters were crystal clear.

Nyx waited for her to pass through the ferns, then he followed, possibly even passing her to stalk the narrow edge of one of the terraces. He could feel the steam rising around him, drifting toward the open sky in whispy tufts. "This place is new. King Nexys ordered me to explore along the Reki river and at its end, I found this. It's unnamed. You can give it a name if you want"
