Re: The Keep- The Gate
"During battles and war, you don't want to get close enough to the enemy to use a knife. If you are that close they can just as easily injure you. Personally I think arrows are the best but not every one has an aim that will kill."

"Can't fight if yer can't even lift the heavy bloody fin'." Questa pointed out. She polished her shiv with the edge of her cloak and returned it to the sheath.

"That is why people commission their own to be special made. Swords can be made in different weights, I used to help Mama check the weights when she was still smithing," Sileas replied. "I am certain Wulfsen has no worries at all."

"Judgin' by the size of 'is chest and arms, prob'ly not." Questa allowed.

Wulfsen returned, leading his horse. "Ready to go."

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Sileas nodded as she thanked him again. She tucked her bow under her cloak again, but it would be easily reached if needed. Her gaze went to Yehudit and Questa. "Are you ready to go?"

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Yehudit was still stinging from Sileas criticizing her for thinking about men without shirts.

"Yes." She said quietly.

Re: The Keep- The Gate
"Onward!" Sileas called out as she headed through the gate and back down the way they had come to the keep. There was a chill in the night air, and she was grateful for the warmth of her cloak. She was tempted to pull on the mittens Larrigan had given her the last Yuletide, but they would interfere with her bow if it was needed.

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Wulfsen stuck his foot in the stirrup and was about to mount when he noticed Yehudit hobbling with her stick.

"Yehudit, why don't you ride?" Wulfsen offered.

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Yehudit stared at the big warhorse.

"Really?" Yehudit looked to Sileas for guidance. Yehudit's mother didn't like her riding horses because she would fall off... Yehudit fell off just about everything she got on top of.

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Sileas eyed the horse and then Yehudit. It probably wasn't a good idea but if she managed to stay mounted it would be better than testing her ankle. "It would probably be best if you rode. Less time on your ankle. If Wulfsen would like to lead, I can walk alongside to make certain you do not topple off."

"Sure." Wulfsen agreed, already adjusting the stirrups. "This will be a lot faster."

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Yehudit looked doubtful but she climbed onto the horse's back. She wanted to hug its neck. The ground looked so far away. Yehudit squeezed her eyes shut.

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Sileas handed Yehudit the reins. "Here hold on to these, but loosely." She slipped her free hand around one of the straps. "Feel secure? We can always tie you on," Sileas teased lightly.

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Yehudit gripped the reins in sweaty hands.

"If I fall off I'll break my neck." Yehudit whispered.

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Questa looked at the horse, very tempted to slap the animal's rump and send it running.

In reply to Yehudit Buckley (msg # 68):

Silea whispered back, "I won't let you fall." Then she glanced at Wulfsen. "Perhaps it might be better if I ride behind her?"

"Thanks." Sileas climbed up behind Yehudit and took the reins with one hand and wrapped her free arm around her cousin's waist. "Better?"

"Haven't I always watched over you and taken care of you?" Sileas reminded her. "I've always been here for you and I always will."

Sileas sighed. She didn't know how to deal with Questa any longer.

Re: The Keep- The Gate
Wulfsen blushed and self-consciously hitched up his trousers. He still did not know why Questa had taken his belt while he was unconscious.
