Meria stayed silent, looking away. She bit her lip.
"please leave my tent" avexis insisted "we must get moving to the next village, i want to get there by sun down and you are holding us up" avexis faced the gruards proudly and with no fear
Claire fidgetted a bit, her fingers absently going to her hair. Gone. How could he be so cruel? There were other options!
the guards began to pull out the swords "you little brat!" they yelled going to wing at him, Avexis dived back ready to draw his sword, but he hadny tied his sword on himself yet this morning, it was still in the bedroom....
Meria slid her knife from the sheath on her back and slid it to Avexis.
avexis smiled as a sign of thanks "it may only be a knife, but the dragon was mutch bigger than my sword" as one of the guards flinched and went to attack avexis, he ducked under the swing of the sword and slide the knife into his arm pit, dislocating his shoulder as he let nout a howl of pain
Meria looked at her lap and fingered her hair. She looked up at Claire and gave her a sad and apologetic look.
Claire gave a slight shake of her head and took the chance to dash inside. She put on her clothes from before and grabbed her weapons.
Meria followed her, slipping into her comfortable clothes. She pulled on her knives and grabbed her sword.
the other guards ran of, taking hte wounded guard with them "were going to be late, i need help acking the tent" he picked up his sword and knives and got himself ready for the travels "out of the tent please" he said, standing outside of it himself
Meria walked out of the tent, looking behind her at Claire.
Claire finished getting her stuff and stepped out. She had gloves on, and she slapped Avexis as soon as she stepped out.
"wshat was that for?!" he said rubbing his cheak, before chanting something as the tent collapsed
"WHAT WAS CHOPPING ALL MY DA.MN HAIR OFF FOR?!" Claire shouted angrily.
"so they wouldent recognise you, the guards are idiots and it worked didnt it?" he sighed and glared at her
"I could have done other da.mn things with my hair!" Claire shouted.
"it will grow back, i will end up with grey hair from you both by the time we reach the palice" he said jokingly as he already had snow white hair wich was about the same length as theres was now
Meria grumbled and looked down.
Claire growled and turned away as she fought back tears. "It'll never be the same." She mumbled, her struggle slipping into her voice. "I had my hair grown out for a reason..."
Avexis mounted his horse after the tent was packed away "it will grow longer by the time we get to the palice, we need to get moving too the next town" he said rearing his horse to walk foreward
