The Sin's I Proclaim/ Anaru , Scathach

It seemed like the trek back down the mountain and through the valley lasted forever. They had talked about the order a bit during that time but a lot of the journey was in silence. It took them a day and a half of following the black water river before they caught sight of the forest where his home lie. Something in him told him to turn back and run from the place he knew wouldn't accept him. Not the way he was, not the way he would become but it was the only home he knew. He looked back at the black demon behind him. He knew something about her was off but watching her stand there for a moment was almost terrifying. Her locks of black waving around her like cowl of nightmares and her stare keeping all his senses on alert. This feeling was even after he'd spent two days with her. 

Slowly he licked his muzzle and nodded to her as if to say we're here. "This is where the order rests." He mumbled and turned his head back to the forest. He wouldn't dare step paw back into his home until his sins were dealt with. With one last grasp of courage he raised his muzzle into the air. His voice ringing out loud and clear across the forest. Its echo calling for acceptance and invitation to walk on their soil, on his soil. Anger again rose in his chest but he let it go, he let it boil off and stood there waiting for the white and pastel fur to show. He knew who would answer his call. She wouldn't let any low rank come and retrieve him.. She probably wouldn't even let Odin come at this point. Who knew how much she already knew about what he was ready to proclaim.. Another sigh left his muzzle and soon he was pacing. His steps respectful of the border but still fast and leaving a trail along the edge.

Scathach had not disagreed to return with him when he had suggested it. It saved her time to seek them out in order to do so though she hoped he was aware she would not allow him to lean on her for any sort of mercy from whatever he was returning to. She would return with him but she would not let him take too much credit for what she was already planning on doing in the end. She would not step in to try and protect him either. Whatever it was that had led to his hiding away in cowardice, she imagined would not come without some sort of punishment.

There was only a bit of idle chatter as they had traveled though Scathach was not the most talkative individual, nor was she particularly fond of small talk. She could feel the awkward tension when things would fall silent between them but would not dwell on it. She was not concerned with trying to impress this individual who had run to hide away from his own people. Whatever their relationship at the moment, it was fine the way it was for the time being.

There was an air of tension that seemed to always linger around him. Did she unnerve him? Not surprising considering she'd always done so around her peers even as a child. The spirits that lived with her shadows seemed to cackle in shrilling whispers that were silent to the rest of the world. They seemed to find it even more funny when he gave instruction on where they were, a fact she was well aware of. Did he forget when she said she'd been born here? She supposed it might have been in case they had lived elsewhere before this though, as far as she knew, the Founder's Grove had always been home to mundane.

Lips pursed, she would say nothing else as he gave out his call, summoning this Anaru to them. An ear flicked as orange eyes would follow the path of his anxious pacing. An eyebrow raised but she would not dare speak. As amusing as it was, she wondered if he realized that she was not only there to join, but also to stop him should he attempt to turn tail again. The moment she'd agreed to return to speak with Anaru about rejoining her home she'd pledged herself to the Order and what it would need. If that meant making an enemy of this man, so be it. But for the time being she would allow herself to sit, watching his movements and listening for the approach of the one he sought.

She had remained content to rest in her den; too sore to really care about rising and gallivanting off this morning. She sighed, waking only slightly, enough to stretch one of her paws, allowing her toes to spread and her body to adjust. The motion ached, her bruised ribs a reminder of her discomfort each time she inhaled or shifted. And in her head, though Odin had nearly broken the small damsel she still hungered for more. To have the magicka's head upon the wall of her cave. Now that would be a good day, and she was confident one day she would have it, whether it be by her own means or by Odin's. Another sigh filtered through the womans slim muzzle, gold eyes gazing out the maw of her den at the filtering rays of morning sun. A few more moments of silence, until a call rung through the still air. 

It was familiar too, reluctantly Anaru slowly rose her head, pushing her upper body from the floor of her den, tufted audits flickering at the noise. Was that Fallyn? Honestly she didn't think she'd see the man again, he'd sauntered off after the meeting - while he claimed it was a test his embarrassment by the response he got told her otherwise. If it was in his plans then why did he flee the mess that he had caused? Why not face the music? She had little respect for a coward. Anaru stayed there a moment longer, contemplating until she finally pushed herself upon her feet. Muscles growing tight against the pain it took to get up, the woman staggered slightly a pained cough roughly escaping her lungs. Neatly tucking her wings against her hips she started out toward the edge of the grove, her journey there was less than graceful. She was limping and staggering quite awkwardly at times. 

But as she neared Fallyn, as she could see him in the distance - along with the frame of another she would straighten. Forcing her muscles to bear the weight on her right side where the damage was done. Like hell if she would allow him to see her as anything less than what she was the day she stood before her people at the meeting. Her facial expression became something stoic, unwilling to show him or his company any discomfort, even the slightest. It was unacceptable of a leader to do so. She was the face of the order after all. The woman watched as he paced nervously slowing near him, "Hello Fallyn," she mused, a huff roughly escaping blue nostrils as she bit back a cough. Golden hues shifted to the other woman, plagued in darkness; but a Mundane nontheless, she didn't recognize her though. "Welcome to you as well sister" once greetings were past them, Anaru got straight to the point "I assume you're ready to come home now?" she mused, slowly lowering herself upon her haunches.

The waiting was met with much reward as the figure he'd longed to make things right with seemed to appear just after his call. She was just as intimidating as she was at the meeting but this time there seemed to be a wave of tired over her expression. He paused in his pacing and lowered his head and his tail in her presence. He had wronged here even if he didn't agree with the way it was handled he'd started this. Now it was time to come to a close. The faintest of smells hovered over his nose and part of his wished to dive into it but he refrained from it and let his ears fall against his skull. "I am.. If you would have me. I know what I did at the meeting was wrong in your eyes.. But I had good reason.." He paused before allowing himself to throw in an excuse. He wasn't going to give her any ammo to pelt him with yet and hopefully she wouldn't. 

He lifted his ears just barely wanting to tell her about his misfortunes like he had before but he also waited on this too. He had no idea how she would react in front of a new member or how harshly she wished to punish his transgressions. If she threw him out there would be no need to tell her anything more, If she didn't he might need t bring it up later. His pelt was crawling with twitches and itches from being under the spot light. Both females knew he was in the wrong and he knew both would hold him to those punishments. He was ready for anything of course.. He wouldn't know how he'd react to any violence.. but a flash of his brother's face seemed to bring the idea into his mind. A promise.. "I will accept my punishment.. Even if it means losing my home." His eyes stared at the ground with an off in the distance look. He was caught up in a memory, a promise made to his brother long ago..

Not much else was said between the two as they sat in wait. She was not one for small talk and chose not to partake in it. Besides, he did not seem to be in the talkative mood with how tense he'd become. She pretended not to notice only out of courtesy but could really care less otherwise, truth be told. If anything her mind was occupied by thoughts of the past. How long it had been since she'd returned to the grove. Nostalgia filled her as she recalled her youth.

It did not take long though before they were joined by the one who had been called for. The spirits that resided within her shadows seemed to giggle manically at the approach of the pastel woman. A nod of her head was given to her as a greeting. "My name is Scathach. It's a pleasure."  Saying nothing more then to interrupt her questioning of Fallyn, she'd already made sure to put enough distance between them to make it clear they were nothing more than brief acquaintances at best.

"My name is Scathach. It's a pleasure." Anaru would give a respectful nod of her head to the dark fae, embarrassed that she would have to witness this discussion between her and Fallyn. But perhaps the stranger could learn something from the exchange. Golden hues flickered back to Fallyn as he spoke. 

"I am.. If you would have me. I know what I did at the meeting was wrong in your eyes.. But I had good reason.." her lip would twitch by the tail end of his words, good reason? Hardly. But she wouldn't comment, allowing his words to fall and linger upon his tongue interested to see if or how he would build on them. Something told her that he wasn't done, he had more to say, but would he? In front of a new member and whilst he walked on such unstable ground. He would choose the easier path, "I will accept my punishment.. Even if it means losing my home." the woman sighed, a small huff escaping her maw from the cough the pain in her chest caused. "I don't think losing your home is a fitting punishment, a bit steep don't you think?" she mused, allowing her deep golden gaze to meet his stare of ice for a moment, allowing her words to seep in. No he wouldn't be thrown out today. 

"You will start at the bottom though, I think starting off as an Ordinary again should give you enough time to prove yourself" she finished, her gaze turning away from him and up to the woman whom he'd brought along. What was her name? Scathach. "Where do your skills lie sister?" she inquired, it wasn't a guarantee that she'd start her off any better, but she at least wanted to get an idea.

He weighed his options at this point. She hadn't found out yet about the missing pup yet nor did she truly see what he saw. IN his eyes he had called her out and had treasonous thoughts and poisonous ambition against her. Should he tell her all that or just let his mind lie for once? He shook his head in answering her first question. His punishment should show where his loyalty should have been in the first place. Instead she let him off with an easy punishment. His skills would far pass most in the blink of an eye. He held himself in a passive but subtle stance as she questioned the other woman. She was of course going to be introduced into the pack with a choice probably. He looked toward the trees beyond Anaru while the ladies talked. His mind reaching out almost to his brother far within its boundaries. He would need to reach out to him soon. His anger was still there but his heart was sober without him. 

When the ladies seemed to pause he looked back to Anaru with a serious expression, he had his little secret to tell her and he would tell her alone. He didn't know how to put it or how she would react but if he was going to trust her with his life it would start with his secrets. "I do have things I need to speak to you about alone.. Things that I wish to share with you and you alone. I am happy to wait till you two are finished." Fallyn's voice was stern but with a forced gentle to it. Almost like he didn't want to wait to get it off his chest but would for the sack of being a gentleman. "Please don't feel rushed." He added a bit nervously. Fallyn felt like a little kid under the eyes of a frustrated parent and in all honesty he deserved every bit of what was coming and why. He had acted like a complete jack ass in front of everyone, not truly meaning any of it but they all took it as real. Maybe he should work on his people skills. His mind racing to find things to focus on while he waited his eyes darting up to the sky and then back to his homeland. If the ladies began to walk he would follow a bit slower and stay behind them, maybe taking a glance at their behinds but trying not to at the same time.
