PostSubject: Messy beginning   Wed 3 Oct 2012 - 23:09

Astucia sniffed around the place. After years of wandering around alone, she had decided to look for a herd to join. She peered into the darkness around her, full of debris of dead leaves. Dead branches stuck out and grasped at her dark-as-night purple coat. Her markings had been dulled because of the desert she'd walked through to get to this dim forest. Her mane and tail were mangled, and not giving off the slightest glow like usual. I am a mess. she thought to herself. After the years of being alone, the wild had taught her how to become hard and tough, and give the up-most ethical views on life. Even though her personality traits still shone through. As a foal, she was a devious youngen, always getting into trouble. This is what led her to become so successful in the wild because she had honed her senses and survival skills. NOw, as she thought about it, a tiny ruffle was heard by her sensitive hears. She flicked her head around, "Who's there"?. Her voice cracked the darkness like a whip. A small field mouse emerged from the ruffled bush. Kneeling down, Astucia hurumfed. Why must I be so cautious? she thought. Her ears pricked themself forwards as she looked around for a place to sleep. A bushy-cavern made the perfect rest place where she lay, eyes closing, mind shutting down, body falling into a soft slumber.

The black moon hung low in the sky. The mist slowly creeping in from the tress, he knew nobody could see much. Ezazel's eyes were well adjusted, allowing him to see eveything. He bent down, checking to make sure his dagger was still secured under his leg. Something moved off in the woods. He whipped his head towards the sound, and saw a horse, looking intently at the ground, with something little moving out of bush.
He began walking, slowly, each hoof lightly grazing the ground before his weight shifted.
"Hello." His voice was stiff, from not talking in a while. He soon realized that, and cleared his throat a bit before he stopped, standing just a few feet up hill of the horse.

Astucia pricked her ears forward. Her slumber had not lasted long as she had heard the on-coming horse. Male, she agreed with herself.
Hello. Astucia's voice was filled with confidence and a slight bit of tension. She had never really talked to a male horse before. Quickly getting up, Astucia's eyes drifted over to the stallion...and then her eyes drifted to herself. Stammering, Astucia apologised. I am very sorry for my appearance. I normally am well-groomed and... Astucia's hard voice faded into the silence. She desperately wanted to start into a herd, start a new life, lead a new life. Forget her old one.
She waited for the stallions reply.

Ezazel grinned a bit. Most new horses here didn't look well groomed, but neither did the ones that had been here from the start. The longer they stayed here the more rugged and wild some of them began to look. If they lasted that long. He thought, making him shiver a bit. The thought of being killed by one of the those savage things made him unconformable. Horses he understood, people he understood, but lydes, he did not.
"That's okay." He took a few steps closer, his dagger shinning a bit in the refection from the water.
"What brought you here?"

Astucia saw the stallion grin. Thinking nothing of it, she replied. I am looking for a new herd. I heard that there was a herd around here and I have travelled far and wide to find them. Would you happen to know the alpha or could you direct me to the alpha? Such high confidence was found in Astucia's voice. She was wildly determined to join the herd, if it was the last thing she would do.
Though, as she was talking, she saw the stallion shiver. Is there something to be wary of in these woods? Glancing around, Astucia saw nothing except the small light of the up-coming sun and a few leaves russeling in the wind.
Sorry, where are my manners? I am bombarding you with questions and haven't even introduced myself! A devious grin broke out over Astucia's muzzle. i must be going insane. why am i grinning? Astucia thought to herself as she waited for the stallions reply.

"Well, I can help you find the alpha. His name's Avril." Ezazel debated whether to tell the mare who he was. It always took the new horses a bit to realize who he was. He kept his head turned a bit, hiding the scar from a long time ago. A time of rage, a time of hate, a part of his past that he wanted to forget so bad.
"Something? Oh your never alone. Never in the woods. Your safe now. I could smell one of them if they were here. We call them lydes. Damned things." The wind picked up, Ezazel sniffed it a bit, testing to see if he smelled any of them, but it was clean, only smelling of horse and grass.
"My name is Ezazel. What's yours?"

Astucia mumbled to herself. Ezazel, that's a nice name. Mines....Astucia. Her name was a cursed one. Why did she had to be called Astucia? It meant 'cunning'. It was what her old herd called her. She hated the name and she hated people knowing her name. Lydes? they sound very dangerous. have you encountered them? are they feirce? She cursed herself for asking so many questions. Astucia had heard stories from the nearby herds about Lydes. they are the silent stalkers of the night That what the crazy old mares used to tell her. She never thought anything could be so terrifying but be so like a horse. Well, she thought they were like a horse....

[OOC, is Ezazel king or something? sorry, i don't know....]

(OOC: Yes. Ezazel is king, Mirage
his queen, Makivis the war general, and Desperado is the right hand man.. Sorry
for the long wait on a reply)


Ezazel couldn't help but grin a bit.
"Astucia. That's Spanish right? My Spanish is a little bit rusty, but if I
recall, it means cunning. Which.." he paused for a second, "wouldn't
be a bad thing" Ezazel had forgotten a bit of the European languages, that
he had learned centuries ago, but he remember enough to get by.
"Lydes." He started, drawing in a breath before continuing."They
are probably the worst things you will ever encounter, in this realm or the
next." Then he countinued to explain to her their physical description,
ending by saying."If you see one, run and start praying."


(OCC: if you want a better
description go look in the Lyde Territory topic on the main page.)

Astucia grimaced Spanish, yes. Your the first one to figure it out.... Not in a bad way of course, just....funny that anyone around here would know the language of Spanish She took in the name Avril and the horse associated to the name. Could you possibly show me where this herd leader is? Sorry I do not know this land very well
Astucia looked around, as if checking for Lydes. Her other home-land hadn't any strange, dangerous creatures. But the horses around her had basically given the dangerous name to Astucia.
THERES ASTUCIA they'd call, then run of screaming. Oh how she hated those horses. Just as well no one knew of her terrible past, her terrible story or her terrible nature.

"I don't know where he would be. But we can go look, if you want.
It wouldn't be any trouble. He's probably down by the waterfall
not to far from here. It's pretty safe there." Ezazel paused,
then decided to answer the mare's first question.
"Most horses haven't lived as long as I have.
Never the less seen Europe. What a beautiful
country. London in winter-" He trailed off, then turned around,
throwing his head back to see if the mare had made a move to follow.

Astucia went to follow the stallions and the grimaced, she was still a dirty wreck. Waterfall? That'd be great. Then she listened to his next comment. Sounds like you've been around alot. Sort of like me. She sure had been around, unlike most horses she had met. No one ever left their herd boundaries unless they were driven out. Astucia was none of the above. She has just left.
Astucia was walking besides the stallion, the one who called himself Ezazel. So, in which parts of the forest do you live?

"Yeah. I'll show you. Beautiful at sunrise. Which" He paused, looking around
a little bit,"Shouldn't be too much longer." He continued walking, his hair bobbing in
an awkward fashion, god. I need a bath. Then he laughed, "Yeah. I guess
you could say I've been around. Italy was beautiful, and China.. my god. They spend
hours on paintings, only to give them away. It's been a long time since I've seen
anything outside of Myst though, kinda wish I could go back, just to see how it's changed."

Sunrise. That's one thing I miss from where I came from. You could always so the most amazing sunrise and sunset - it could always melt even the hardest of hearts like mine she thought to yourself. Following the stallion was an easy task as she noticed he kept to the paths. he must know this place quite well. Listening to his past was even more interesting, Yes, Spain was beautiful for the short period of time I went there. more like run there

"A short time? In Spain? How did they let you leave without seeing
everything there was to see?" I had to look at every since piece of grass.
"You want to run there? If we just walk we might miss the sunrise."

It's hard to explain. I'll just say it wasn't a 'joy trip'. Galloping was what Astucia did best and she put that wicked, cunning smile onto her face, the cunning smile that chilled bones and the chilling smile that had cost her, her herd. Let's gallop!
