"My dear Lady Eden, since we all seem to be mounted, except you and I fear that you could never keep up with us, though I do not doubt your stamina, I offer the services of my horse to you, of course as long as you do not mind riding with me. Or maybe you would rather ride on an AJ. I am sure Ta'las or even Talia would be glad to give you a lift. Either way, make up your mind for we must be going. We have to reach the vale before nightfall, and the sun is already high in the sky."

Eden's head shot up as Capher spoke, and she listened intently, her hands still running through her silky beard which was now considerably more clean, albeit rather wet. The idea of riding with the two women did not sit well with the dwarf, but neither did the idea of being left to the devices of the old man who knew a discomforting amount about her. Stuck with a dilemna, Eden scanned her surroundings in thought as she often did, and it was then she spotted the curious mount Talia possessed. Taken aback, Eden picked up her robes about her ankles and tottered up to Capher.

"I'll ride with you, sir, I suppose. I thank you kindly, though I hope my packs are not a burden on your little animal!" she said, heaving the hefty load up for Capher to lift up onto the horse. Once it had been taken care of, Eden finally managed to get herself up top (with more than a few well checked oaths and curses) and nodded to Capher. "Do believe I'm set... though I daresay I'm troubling you something awful."

A little sigh escapes Aueniteri as they announce their departure, and she hurries a little, being the last one ready. Quickly, she packs up her few possessions, brushes and saddles the steed she's been given by the elves, and mounts it. Her eyes travel across the campground, watching Ken as he makes sure the fire will not burn again on its own, and then walks over to Talia.

Curious, she watches him, not listening to his chatter, although she gathers that it includes deserts and cactus and rocks and water, but she finds herself listening more closely as he says, "... Talia, is to accept the offer you extended me earlier, if it's still possible. I do believe it would be interesting to try, if just for once. I've never ridden an aj'nuvic before, but I believe it should be possible for me to learn the tricks of it. You mastered them; surely I could, eventually, pending how much I'm obligated to try. I like to try new things..., and she found herself thinking of other things, only vaguely hearing him mention liquor, and babble onward.

Talia didn‘t expect, that Eden would choose her mount to ride with and watches now with a smile her efforts to get on Capher‘s horse. She doesn‘t expect any other to be curious or brave enough to sit more than two peds above ground. So she is taken by surprise, when the smallest person around asks her, if he could ride with her. She looks down at him with a perplex looking face, but composes herself quickly and answers:

„Of course, Kenriil, just let me think which way is the best...“  

Thoughts are racing through her mind. She doesn‘t want to offend him by asking him to sit in front of her like a child would, with her arms around his waist and shoulders to prevent him from falling down. What speaks against this as well is that sitting there might even frighten this little hero, for there is nothing before you to hold your view than a moving aj-head - and it feels as if the ground is much farther away than just two peds. And he might irritate Swing, with his feet moving over areas, where she is waiting for commands giving with the feet.
Better behind her, where he can‘t see much but has surely the safest feeling. She has to put her sword away though, but her other weapons are more effective anyway while sitting on an aj.

„Well, maybe you better sit behind me, so..... so your sword wouldn‘t hinder me. “  

She removes her feet out of the guiding ropes and turns around to rearrange her bags and her blanket on the buttock of Swing till a comfortable looking little seat is formed.  It is the highest point of an aj‘nuvic, maybe a fore over two peds, but surely the safest one. She will tie Kenriil to herself as well, just to prevent him from falling down. Jumping down from her height she offers the hobbit her crossed hands to use them as a ladder.

„Ken, you need to step now in my hands, then on my shoulder, then you should be able to reach the net of ropes there which you can use to climb on top. Once you are seated I will come as well and fasten you to myself, just to prevent you from falling down. “  

To not to hut the pride of the little man, she adds

„You know, an aj can run faster than a horse, and you are not used to it. As soon as you have accommodated, you can sit as you like. “  
And with an assuring  smile on her face, she offers Kenriil her two linked hands to climb a mount he might not have heard of a year ago.

With all seeming mounted and ready Terra brings Coore along side Capher, Coore snorting angerly at Eden prompting Terra to rub his neck gently letting him know her anger has passed while giving Eden an apologetic smile. Then she turns her friendly smile towards Capher, her voice taking on a warmer tone than usual.

"It seems we are all ready my friend. Do you care to lead the way? I am still a stranger to these lands."

Terra shudders quickly and almost seems to recoil from some unseen pain, the smile fading to the cool expression the others had become accustomed to.

Kenriil takes in stride everything Talia has said, listening in his own noisy way. Even though it might seem that he is shutting her out by continually talking while she talks, yet he makes note of everything she has said and acts upon it accordingly. Properly secured, he wraps his arms around Talia's waist for extra security, and speaks of being ready for the ride.

...only guess that you're still listening. But let me tell you a little about myself...

Capher smiled as Eden took up his offer.  He tried not to laugh as she put her pots and pans and other things on the back of his horse and then climbed aboard herself.  His horse, reared a little by the noise of her utensils, but Capher calmed him down quickly.  He did not want to scare Eden.

Terra came up, smiled and asked if he would take the lead.  Capher then noticed her shudder, as if she were in pain, but quickly composed herself.  Capher smiled back at her, "Lady Terra I thought Z'doth was our guide, but if you wish I will gladly lead.  Maybe he is still trying to get over our last encounter.

He saw Ken actually climb aboard Talia's AJ, settle himself in, all the while talking.  Capher shook his head smiling as he looked at the group of comrades Seyella sent his way.  "Hold on tight, Lady Eden." He yelled behind him and then spurred his horse, who leaped away at a fast gallop.  "Follow me!" He yelled as he passed his other friends.  Terra was riding side by side with him, several peds apart.

Capher.
