Abby fell into silence. It wasnt an uncomfortable silence, but with the silence the weariness crept back into her eyes. She fought and resisted the urge to bring her hands to her face and attempt to scrub away the exhaustion. Instead, she kept her hands busy by pulling her hair over to one shoulder and braiding it little strand by little strand, then running her fingers through it to start again. It was done without thought and without concentration, a mindless movement as she watched Jarah.

Jarah was playing a cat's game by choosing a patch of grass randomly, crouching down, wiggling her butt and then pouncing to see just how many butterflies she could get to errupt up into the air. It was amusing to watch Jarah pounce, trott ahead and zigzagging in front of the other two, pausing and pouncing again simply to entertain herself in the meadow.

Felix, Abby and Jarah walked in this manner until early evening. Occasionaly he looked back at Abby when she was focused on something else so that she wouldn't see him. He saw her braiding her hair and wondered whether it was stress or simply her looking for something to do. Jarah, however, was clearly busying herself. She was upsetting the general balance of the world and the peace of the butterflies, although they would have done so anyway while they were walking. Even with this, Felix found himself smiling. If their footsteps had not been quietened by the lush grass and if they had been in more dangerous territory, he might have asked the tiger to slow but for now he bothered not with it.

Jarah also helped them stay on track as the moon began to appear in the sky and the sun began to disappear, as even as she walked in front of them she was always heading towards Randatria. A few minutes later, Felix eyed another signpost and so went to look at it. A rough distance was scrawled beneath the city's name and he supposed that they would make it Randatria before it got too dark. He ran back towards Abby and looked towards the city.

"If we move fast enough, we'll make it before it's too dark to see. We won't need to run but if it does get dark we'd be better off doing so rather than waiting."

Abby let out a little hmm of agreement and nodded. "Yes.. before dark is best." She gave her fingers a little snap and Jarah stopped her playing and took up her place by Abby's side as they walked.

She looked up wearily at the sky, measuring the sun's height and wondering just how far they had yet to go.

*** TIME SKIP***

The sun was sinking and the light was almost gone, leaving deep shadows to creep over the area. But the sound of people living was coming closer. Abby could hear passing hooves of horses and the chatter of other people and they had already begun to pass a few houses scattered far apart. The dwellings started to become closer together until they came over a hill and the city loomed into view.

Relief washed over Abby's face. She had been seriously dragging her feet for a good while now and starting to limp from the ache in the balls of her feet and arches. Her wounds itched and burned slightly. And her cheeks were starting to take on the pink hue of a fever.

However, despite the discomforts her eyes lit up with excitement. "Felix! Look!"
