Ness stood up. "be right back. come Sari. I'll be back soon. dont worry ii got my stick still"she said as she grabbed her stick and turned back to brad. "me and sari are gonna hunt.'she said as she winked at him. Both Sari and her ran off into the island. She was gone for more than 2 hours. She killed a elk. and couldnt bring it back. she stayed there.
((Hey, I just have a small request that you do give me more chance in your posts to put Brad's reations and stuff. I've been ignoring it so far, but you keep jumping through without giving any chance. Like her going off, he wouldn't have just sat there and let her go...))
(( he can go find out where she is and why she has been gone so long. ok. I'll give Brad more chances))
((Look, I know he could do that, but my point is, it's not really powerplaying, but it's almost as annoying as powerplaying when someone runs away with a story without giving the other character chane to interupt. It's out of character for him to just sit by in the first place. I'm not being allowed to develope my character properly.))
((okthen. ignore her running off.I will retry it))
Ness got up and grabbed her stick. "im probably gonna hunt with Sari. shes hungry. " she told him. she turned around and adusted her clothes. she waited to see if brad would say anything. "come here Sari" she said. she petted sari, while standing in the same spot.
"Ness, it's getting dark. It's not safe..." Brad said worriedly, getting up although he nearly fell back when a shooting pain went through his ankle. "Let me come with you."
Ness sighed. "let me see your shirt."she told him. she also told him that she wanted to wet it and wrapp it around his ankle that way his ankle wouldnt hurt much. "We can go hunt after." she added.
Brad sighed and nodded, giving her his shirt. After his ankle was taken care of, he picked up a sharpened rock he'd used to help get the meat off Sari's mother.
Ness treated brads ankle. She grbbed his hand and grabbed her stick in the other hand. "lets go! Come on Sari."she said.
"Lead the way, Ness." Brad mumbled, a blush in his cheeks.
Ness led the way "shhhh..."she said quietly as they crouched down and hid behind a bush. 2-4 deer graze off the other bushes. "she gave Brad a sharp stick, while holding hers. "you get one and Sari and I will go after another."she told him.she petted Sari and waited for the right time.
Brad shook his head. They weren't hunters. They hadn't ever done this before. What were the odds they'ed get it right the first try?
Ness shook her head. "whatshall we do then?"she whispered. She took brads hands in hers and looked into his eyes looking for answers.
Brad looked at her and blushed before pulling away. "Traps...they might have more luck..."
Ness tilted her head. "but how? thats one thing i learned, but never tried."she told him. she slumped down.
"You worry about hunting like this." Brad told her. "I'll see about getting some supplies to start setting snares."
Ness shrugged. "but its getting dark. and Sari is hungry. Should we wait til morning?"she asked. She picked up Sari. and held her like the baby she was.
Brad sighed and nodded. "We can grab supplies for traps and stuff on the way back and I might set one or two. In the morning we can come back and finish the work, and if Sari's lucky, we'll have caught somethng in one of the traps."
Ness yawned. "ok" she said. she walked torwards the beach with Sari asleep in her arms purring.
