Falauna wasn't very far out of her homeland before running into certain issues. She had originally had enough food and supplies to last her until she made it to the next town where she could buy more. However, she had gotten off track and found herself almost in the middle of the wilderness. Thankfully, nature provided and she was busy picking berries for her next meal.

Knowing she shouldn't just eat them ripe off the vine or tree, she carefully placed them into her bag to take back to her meager camp. If it could even be called a camp. A small area was there for a fire and a place to sleep. Luckily she had a bedroll, but that was on her back and not at the camp. Not entirely sure her location was safe, she decided to keep all her belongings with her.

Her hair kept falling in front of her face and she kept pushing it away. Something she should have invested in was a hair tie of some kind. Just something to remember when she reached civilization again. Standing up, she stretched slightly and heard a rustling from beside her. Turning to look at what it was, the large animal came shumbling out from the brush.

What Falauna had hoped to do was be smart about the situation and stood still. Not moving a muscle and hoping it would pass her by. It had other thoughts and let out a growl at her. Even though the woman was in touch with nature, there were times that skill didn't do her a lick of good. This was one of them. Letting out a scream, she turned tail and ran. The animal followed and started chasing her through the woods.

Wondering if it could climb, she grabbed onto a low hanging limb and started to scramble up the tree. Once she felt she was high enough, she stopped and looked down. Meeting the eyes of the animal, it stared up at her and sat down on the ground. All it had to do was be patient and its prey would have to come down. Growling, Falauna looked up at the sky and wished the creature would go away so she could get her much needed food.

Araborn walked along through the woods back to his camp, he had forgotten his bedroll at his last camp but by the time he got back there it was gone, probably taken by some animal to be used for there home, then he heard a scream.

He made his way through and came across a woman sitting in a tree with a large beast in front of it, he quicky pulled out his bow and nocked a arrow as the beast turned towards him, right as it was starting to charge it got a arrow in the face, then another dropping it, he put his bow back and went over to the tree "are you all right?" He called up to her

Staring up at the sky wasn't doing any good and the beast remained below. That suddenly changed though and it moved away from the tree only to crumple to the ground not very far away, an arrow stuck in its face. A human male must have been nearby and heard her scream. Falauna was very thankful somebody had heard her and come to her rescue.

He looked up at her and asked if she was alright. Not standing up from her position on the tree, she started to try and look for a way down. Once she thought she had found a path, probably the one she had come up, she started to make her way down.

By the time she was on the ground again, her cheeks were likely a bright pink. Hoping he hadn't been looking up her skirt while she was climbing, she smoothed that down and pushed her hair out of her eyes once again.

"Yes, sir. Thank you. If you hadn't come along, I would have been dinner for that thing."

Giving him a small bow and slight curtsy, she stood up again and looked at him.

"I was picking berries not far from here. Don't have enough for my dinner yet though. If I could get more, I'll share with you as a way to repay you."

As the woman started to climb down he turned away and poked at the beast a bit, *haven't seen this before* he thought to himself, when she got back on the ground he turned back to her and said "it's no problem, I was happening by when I heard you" he looked her up and down, she was a little shorter then him, probably about three inches and quite beautiful with eye's of the like he'd never seen, she had hair of many colors which added to her beauty, "may I see the berries" if she handed them to him he would inspect them and ask "what is a beautiful young woman like yourself doing out here?" After a sec he said "wouldn't eat these if I were you, alstarn poison"

Her rescuer had the decency to turn around and look away as she made her way down the tree. When Falauna saw this, it caused her to respect him. Not that the rescue alone wouldn't have done that, he showed some respect for her as well by his action. The color faded from her cheeks and he asked to look at the berries she had picked.

After looking at them he told her that it wouldn't be wise to eat them since they were poison.

"What are the side effects?"

Knowing a little bit about poison, there was the chance this was something new to add to that knowledge. Of course with her luck, the poison wouldn't be long-lasting or only came from the fresh berries.

"It's a good thing I was going to wait to get back to my small camp before eating them. Thank you for informing me."

His next question while not surprising, the wording he picked was. Giving him a blink, her face colored again and she attempted to hide that by putting the berries back in her bag.

"I'm on my way to Nal Akima to meet my betrothed. Ended up losing my way and found myself up a tree with a beast waiting to make me dinner. What are you doing out here?"

As of yet, they had not shared their names and Falauna suddenly realized this.

"I am Falauna of House Thorne."

"side affects? None, it just kills you" Araborn said then thought this might just confuse her so he explained "see we have this in my Homeland, inside the berry is a type of acid, it eats away your stomach, and eventually right out on the ground where the seeds make more bushes, however it can't eat through metal so we but it on some of our arrows and occasionally swords" he said thinking of other uses "you can also put it in water and while it's affect is dulled if you have enough it can still be lethal" he then was surprised to hear that she was bound for Nal Akima, "that is also where I am going, it is my Homeland, I have business there, I am surprised you'd be betrothed to someone so far away though" he said shaking his head, "since we go to the same place come! I shall escort you, let us go to your camp and get you belongings and we may be on our way"

Death would be considered a side effect and not one Falauna was really that interested in. Though him saying it could be used on weapons did. When he mentioned this grew in his homeland and that it also happened to be Nal Akima, she decided to not worry about bringing along those she had already picked.

"Do you want any for your arrows? Maybe the amount I picked will be enough for that. A small manner to repay you by."

His sudden offer to guide and escort her all the way to Nal Akima was a great surprise and she couldn't help but thank the higher powers that brought them together.

"Our parents agreed to this arrangement many years ago. However, my own homeland is now ruled by goblins...and I was sent away to join him."

While Falauna accepted this, she was nervous about meeting him. What if he was some evil tyrant or somebody that was abusive? The words of Araborn brought her out of her reverie and back into the now. She would worry about the future later and focus on the present for now.

"I don't have very much. The guards I got separated from have most of my belongings. Everything else I have with me now. And my camp is hardly even worth calling that. We can go there if you want."

"no, I do not require any for my arrows, I use mine for hunting and it would be unfortunate if the acid ate away all the meat" Araborn said then suddenly realized he hadn't shared his name "I apologise lady Thorne, you gave me your name and I did not return the courtesy, I am Araborn, Ranger of the North" he said with a slight bow.

"If your guards have all your belongings it might be best to go ahead and see if we can find them" he said and then decided "we will go to the road, if we do not see them on the way to the town I will find you lodging and search for them myself, that is if it suits you, but either way we must get moving before nightfall" when he heard what she said about her Homeland he said "I'm afraid Nal Akima might face a similar fate soon, see a group of raticalist's have gone into power over most of the country, they believe all magicians and practicers of the Myst should be exterminated, not long ago our great port I believe got attacked by these people, they slaughtered all magicians they could find, and if they gain control of the entire illand they will likely turn there eyes to the rest of the world and start wars they couldn't possibly win, I'm afraid you'll be arriving at a dark time for my people" he said shaking his head

His observation about the poison and as a hunter not wanting it to eat away at the flesh, she understood what he meant. Figuring there was no need to hold onto them now, she took them out of her bag and scattered them on the ground. New plants might grow where they dropped or unfortunate animals could come along and eat them. To Falauna, death was a part of life, but would not go out of her way to end the life of another creature or being. Only if it was in defense of her own life. Even then, she would be lucky to live if a fight broke out around her. Cleaning up after wouldn't be an issue for her since she could heal most minor wounds.

"I highly doubt we will find the guards. We got separated soon after leaving my homeland. One never knows though, they might show up. Might as well consider my belongings gone at this point."

Nodding when he said they needed to find shelter before nightfall, she looked up at the sky to get an idea of how much time they had. It was the middle of the morning and her stomach picked that moment to growl.

"How close is the town?"

Listening to what he said about Nal Akima, she raised a finger to make an observation.

"It seems many places are going through some sort of turmoil. This is bad news and hopefully, the extremists can be dealt with soon. I came from danger and am heading into more. It seems like a normal day to me."

Showing a bit of humor, she nodded when he provided her his name.

"It is nice to make your acquaintance, Ranger Araborn."

"town isn't to far away, probably about 4 hours if we make good time" he said as they finally reached the road, well road was a loose term, it was a path cut through the woods but other then that it was hard to call it a road, as they walked he listened to her reply about the happenings at Nal Akima, "your a brave woman, you will fit in well with my people" he was hesitant to ask her a question but decided to go ahead "I hope I am stepping out of line by saying this but why do you go to be married to someone you've never met? It seems foolish to marry someone you might not even like"

Making good time on the wild ground was going to be difficult, but luckily Araborn was able to quickly find what could be thought of like a road. Traveling now would be slightly better and easier. Not one to complain, Falauna ignored her growling stomach and walked with her new guide and companion.

He commented he felt she was brave and that she would fit in well with his people. Giving him a bit of a smile at his statement, he then asked why she was willingly going to marry a person she had never met and might not even like. Shrugging her shoulders and lifting her forearms just slightly, she was silent for a moment as she considered how best to answer the question.

Looking at the ground in front of them, she turned to look at Araborn.

"It was an arranged marriage. Our respective parents worked this out when we both very young. This is something quite common in the Houses, at least that is what I was told. As for liking or not, time will tell. I'm ready to face the future that is ahead of me and any challenges that arise.

"I mean no offense when I ask this but are you not also a form of nobility? You have a title."

Araborn chuckled "nobility? No, I never even had a house, the title I was given was not by a Lord but by the people, see me and my father would help travelers and caravans, guiding them through the wilderness, teaching some to hunt, it wasn't a profitable business by any means but my father said if you have the ability to help others and don't your worse then those who cause the problems" Araborn said smiling fondly at the thought of his father "we were masters of the wilderness, they called us protectors of the Range, but later they simply called us Rangers, we gained no notice, only by those we helped, but it was enough"

"I never really knew my position in life as I grew up. There were times when my parents treated me like some sort of red-headed stepchild. In fact, they seemed to think I was some sort of changeling. Though to be fair, we don't know where I came from originally. My mother found me as a baby and they adopted me. As I as I aged, I got on well with the other children of my home and land.

"Then I realized I could use Myst. That brought back the thoughts of my parents that wasn't entirely human. As you can see I am, but sometimes I wonder where I came from. Why did my biological mother give me away? It was fate that allowed me to be found and raised as I was."

This was the most she had said all at once, but after learning of his history, Falauna felt she should do the same. He might not be nobility, but that was fine with her. Araborn had been in the right place at the right time and was bringing her to her future. She was thankful for that and appreciated the effort he had already expended on her.

"May the Gods ever guide your steps and the stars your way. I'll always be in your debt with no real way to repay you."

A thought came to mind though, she was going to marry a Lord. He could give Araborn a proper and official title. What had been given to him by his people could become something genuine. Deciding she would mention him when they met, she hoped this small thing would be considered a repayment.

"Bah! You owe me nothing, it was my choice to help you, as my father said don't expect something if you didn't agree on it before hand, and I don't expect anything from you, I have all I need" he said shaking his head but was a little worried with what she said about controlling the Myst, if this man is apart of the crusader's then she won't live long.


he cleared his throat "listen, I doubt I'll be seeing this Lord of yours so do me a favor and we'll call it even, don't mention that you control the Myst until you learn where he stands with the Crusader's, ok?"

More than just rescuing her, Araborn also said she didn't owe him anything. Even if he thought that way, Falauna felt she did owe him. If he did take her all the way to Nal Akima, then she could maybe do some of the cooking and gods forbid heal him if he got hurt. Hoping that wouldn't happen, she kept her thoughts to herself on the matter.

Thankful he wasn't one of these crusaders he mentioned, she nodded at his suggestion.

"I understand, Araborn and will remember that. We can both hope that isn't the case. If it is, then it's going to be a very short marriage or one that doesn't happen. Are they really putting them to death?"

She did believe him, but her tone held a touch of not wanting to.
