::Neko pauses only briefly to scratch her feet back in the dirt, causing a small puff of dust to blow gently back towards the fallen thugs before racing to catch up with her Uncle, smiling inside her hood.::
I know I should not take joy in fighting them, Uncle. But it felt good to fight at your side once more.
::Resuming her postion half a step behind him and to the side, she examines the buildings, and the people milling about them as she follows.::
Grayell looks back with a smile, making for the town gate. He slowed a little, keeping right beside her and nudged her arm in a fond manner.
"Well fighting is a necessity some times, but I would be lying if I said I don't enjoy it. Or used to. It can get tiresome. But like anything else - if you're fighting for the right reason, there is no reason not to be passionate and enthusiastic.
You fought very well Neko. You've obviously trained hard and that is admirable."
He grinned in a mischievous manner then.
"I don't know what I would have done had you not been with me."
Grayell laughed then and led the way on to his home in the trees, outside the confines of the town of Wistvale. He was quite eager to talk with Neko further and learn so much more about her - and about himself if that made any sense.
Hardly the epic adventure but no doubt, the start of many more to come.
(Alright bud, it is awesome to have you back. We were rping in the tavern first so this thread is a little short but combined I think you deserve rewards.
You get 5 Acclaim points and 25 gold, loot from the thugs. I will post in your CS and update your details for you. Those first 5 acclaim points mean you earned enough for a new Talent point to spend!
