Re: The Keep- The Gate
Wulfsen was holding his pants up with one hand so he could pick up his sword and scabbard. When Sileas extended her hand, Wulfsen wound up dropping his pants. Mortified Wulfsen dropped the sword on his foot and tripped over it as he hastened to pull up his pants again.

"Do you need some assistance?" Sileas offered her friend. "Yehudit, you had better look away or Aunt Lia will know you've seen something you should not."

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Wulfsen was more red than a boiled lobster. "No, thank you. I can dress myself. Uh..." Wufsen got back to his feet and pulled his pants up. He reached for his belt.

Yehudit blinked for the first time since Wulfsen appeared. "How would she find out?"

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Sileas managed to keep an innocent expression on her face, not even a hint of a little naughty grin. Sileas handed him his belt. "You know Aunt Lia. She will take one look at you and just know. She might not know exactly what it was, but she'll know it happened."

"Then we gotta go back to Buckley Village so she never finds out about this!" Yehudit exclaimed in alarm.

Sileas winced. Now the plan really was botched up. "The plan is still in effect as soon as I make certain Wulfsen is all right."

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Wulfsen was working his belt through the loops on his pants and nearly dropped them again.
"You're going back to Buckley Village? But you can't- there could still be raiders around."

Re: The Keep- The Gate
"I have to go back, Wulfsen. I can't shake the feeling that Mama is still alive." Sileas clasped her hands in front of her. "I took a nap a short time ago, and I kept hearing her calling me to help her."

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Wulfsen missed three loops and his scabbard was still on the ground, but he managed to cinch his belt so his pants wouldn't fall down anymore. Wulfsen looked at Sileas. They had not found Brighid SPenser's body, but there were many bodies that still had not been recovered. There was so much destruction it would be weeks before everyone was accounted for- if they ever were accounted for. Wulfsen did not have the heart to tell Sileas that her mother's body was probably burned up under some rubble.

"We're going to send groups back to see what can be salvaged in the village, we may start as soon as tomorrow." Wulfsen offered, hoping that would be enough.

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Sileas shook her head. "That's not soon enough. She is calling to me for help, but she sounds weak and injured. Even tomorrow might be too late. Wouldn't you do everything you could if you thought you had one chance to save your mother?" Sileas eyed him, tears in her eyes.

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Who could resist a plea like that? And tears too!

"I can't let you go without protection." Wulfsen said, weakening.

"I have my bow and a quiver filled with arrows," Sileas stated. "But...I would not be terribly upset by having some protection along. I'm not so foolish to not understand this could be a dangerous undertaking."

"Can you wait for me to get a shirt?" Wulfsen asked.

Sileas nodded. "Aye, I can wait that long. Yehudit and I will be right up here by the gate. Thank you," she added quietly.

Re: The Keep- The Gate
"I'll return shortly." Wulfsen promised. But besides a fresh shirt he needed to tell Xavier where he was going, grab a few provisions, and his horse...

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Sileas went over to stand next to Yehudit. She pried her bow from her cousin's hands. "That went well. It shows that being honest is always best."

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Yehudit appreciatively watched Wulfsen walking away. "Shame he's getting a shirt- do you think he would have left with us as he is if you said you couldn't wait?" YEhudit half grinned. "Call after him, tell him we have to go now! Right now! Not a moment to lose."

"I have the feeling he would have said we couldn't go then or he'd have had some of his men come over to keep their eye on us."

Yehudit sighed and leaned against the wall. "It's a warm evening, maybe he'll decide he doesn't need a shirt."

"How can you even be caring about shirtless men right now?" All Sileas could think of was their lost family members and friends.

"They're nice to look at." Yehudit said, stung. She looked at her feet.

Questa curiously picked up Wulfsen's sword. "Cor, this is 'eavy. We'd travel faster wivout 'im."

"We do not know what's between here and the village," Sileas said. "While I was willing to strike out on my own, I would be grateful for the protection. It's only heavy because you're not accustomed to it."

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Questa pulled the sword from the scabbard and took a few experimental swings with it. "This is stewpid, a knife is much better. Not so 'eavy and can stab a knife faster."

Questa put the sword back in the scabbard and set it back on the ground. She pulled out her shiv and used the edge of the stone wall to sharpen the blade.
