Where oh where did my little lamb go?
« on: June 27, 2018, 09:15:12 AM »

He stomped around Little Terreille like nobody's business. He had one small, missing sister to find and he had yet to actually find her. Kanoa had no doubt that Ina would attempt to murder him when he did find her, she was off having her own adventures and how dare he interrupt but he worried about her. Little sisters were not meant to go on adventures alone. Without escort. He had half a mind to paddle her behind when he found her.

Every horrible thing that could go wrong for Ina was being played in his mind as he stomped around the streets, accosting anyone he could to see if they had seen her. None had of course. She was simply easy to miss. She wasn't strong jewelwise, a rose just like his and she wasn't very large like he was. She barely came to his hip and for her to be overlooked in the hustle and bustle of a city was unsurprising.

He should have brought more people with him. Their sisters would have found her in a heartbeat, never mind that his tracking spells had pulsed at him when he'd managed to find his way to Rodgau. She was here somewhere but he just could not place his finger on the where. She was obscured from him some how. Or it was altogether possible his spells had backfired and he was tracking a dog around the province.

He sighed heavily as people darted out of his way. Good. He didn't need them getting in his way. Dark brown eyes scanned the crowd as he searched. She had to be here somewhere. She had to be. Where else could she be. There! Tiny, dark haired and female! He moved swiftly to intercept only to be threatened with bodily harm by her escort. Hands up for protection Kanoa spouted out his apologies. People were so touchy here.

Someone bumping him. He turned to snarl at them when he thought to ask them if they'd seen her. "Pardon!" he called out, "But you wouldn't have happened to see a tiny Nharkava woman wondering about here have you?" He settled his hand palm down around waste height, "She's about yeah big, dark brown hair, dark eyes. Got a mean streak a mile wide? Hearth Witch? No? Yes?"

Mooki really wanted out of Rodgau. The province was full to bursting with over eager soldiers and pregnant women. Who became not so pregnant right when he was looking. He still felt green from that, and it had been some days ago. Tama seemed mostly recovered, which made Mooki resentful, even if it was logical. Tama was a healer, after all.

The soldiers weren't so bad as that. But the air was oppressive with an undercurrent of violence. He'd had to prove his mettle against two at least in the last couple days. One was drunk, the other sure some young jeweless buck from elsewhere couldn't best him in a simple wrestling match. Mooki had found these Little Terreillians rather soft over all.

So when his shoulder was deep-bit by another, Mooki was half prepared to roll around in the street knocking another soldier down a few pegs. Turning, he left his easy smile fall away to be replaced with a scowl. He was Darkness damned tired of all the Jeweled assholes trying to push him around.

What he faced turned out rather the opposite.

"What?" Mooki grabbed at Tama's arm so he couldn't wander off. Tugging him back toward the warlord. "You're from the tribes?" He asked, coming closer. "Seems the woman have all developed wandering streaks." Mooki complained. It would take more than days of freedom traveling to ease that heart wound. Mooki was sure he'd never stop being bitter about it.

"We haven't seen her, but we can keep an eye out. Right Tama?" Mooki almost asked about their missing people. But they weren't really missing, were they? They'd abandoned them. Just left. He'd rather watch a woman give birth again.

Eyes on the apple in his hand Tama missed the brush of shoulders. Attention caught instead by Mauki’s hand gripping his elbow. Thrown off balance he lurched sideways towards them. His friend and this massive, rather hairy, new face. Tall enough that he didn’t have to crane his neck like a child to see the dark shadow of beard and untamed hair. Before Mauki even asked Tama had already decided-

This fellow was Nharkavan raised.

”From the tribes?” He repeated, with a vigour bite of his apple. Eyes flicking from one to the other. Noticing with concern the level at which this tall stranger measured his missing woman’s height. ”That small? How old is she?! Little Terreille is huge. You’ll never find someone that short.” Who brought a midget to a territory like this anyhow? At least he hoped she was a midget. Otherwise, at that height she was a child, and he didn’t like the idea of this great big fellow calling a child a woman. His training had focused more heavily on healing than fighting.

But Mooki could take him! And Tama would help with shields or something.

They weren’t fighting though. They were offering to help. Confusion mounting he shrugged it off. If Mooki thought it was a good idea... ”Yeah, sure. Not that many of us out here, accent should be easy to notice.” He took another bite of his apple. Glad they were in something like civilization for the day. Their stock of food was growing dangerously low. For someone without Jewels Mooki sure could eat. And Tama was tired of spit roasted rabbit. Meat was fine, but there ought to be something on the side! ”Did you come to Little Terrielle together? Or did yours run away too?”

Scowled at him, the little puppy! Kanoa could feel the jewelessness of the male he'd run into, though it didn't really bother him. Not everyone could be so lucky to be granted jewels from the darkness and Kanoa was of a mind that even the jeweless were useful. And entertaining. Apparently this one had his own charge to keep from running off if the sudden grab at the man wandering next to him was any indication.
"Sure am I'm standing here," Kanoa answered the boy with a grin, he resisted the urge to slap him on the back, afraid to send the lad into a tumble. Kanoa was a big man and strong, he'd had to learn early on to be careful with his physical strength. "Not real keen on these city type places but chasing someone is what I'm doin' now." Leave it to Ina to make him chase her. Why that woman just couldn't stick her ass at home and be a proper Hearth Witch he didn't know.

"Got a stubborn one too?" he asked lightly. Ina was everything that was stubborn. He loved his baby sister but he could strangle her. When the boy eating an apple exclaimed about the size of Ina, Kanoa looked at the hand still cranked at waste height. Oops. He lifted it a bit higher which wasn't all that higher, more chest level that time. "'Bout there yeah? She'll be 27 soon, but don't tell her I told you that, she gets cranky about her age. Like to put something in your food for it," he told them earnestly. Instant trust for a pair of toddlers from the tribes wasn't something you'd find to unusual about Kanoa.

"She got pissed and she ran. Bad relationship and all that," he growled, still angry about the happenings between his best friend and Ina, "Need help finding yours? I can help if ya need it," he offered as he took their measure. A jeweless blood male and an absent minded boy stronger than he was. Not that Kanao was intimidated, nothing really intimidated the very large man, but he could be wary of a boy with strength.

"Ours didn't run away!" Mooki hissed at Tama. That meant they'd been running from them. Mooki refused to believed he'd been fled. Sure that Io had liked him back, especially after the garden. Surer than sure Nyree loved him, she was his sister! "Probably the same as with his sister," he said, gesturing to the big man, placing the blame squarely on Enele's shoulders.

Io had left him a note. It was folded neat in his pack. Edges and creases worn smooth with reading and refolding. He didn't quite understand it all, her logic beyond him. A wound to his ego as well as his heart. She should have trusted him more, in his abilities! He was perfectly capable of defending himself, and her too! Jewels or no.

Trying to shake off his melancholy thoughts, Mooki looked to Tama, to see what he thought. Not sure he wanted to divert their travels searching for a tiny woman who was liable to poison them. Then again, they were all just visitors in this place, trying to find something. Peace. People.

"We can definitely help you. Our people aren't here though." Of that Mooki was certain. He would have sensed Nyree if she was that close. "Little Terreille is big though, how you gonna find someone so small?" He wondered. Especially someone who didn't want finding. Mooki could barely think with all the people and bustle, much less track someone.
