"I've never fought an entire battle in my whole life..." Cole scratched his head.
Siarra shook her head. "What do you mean?"
"I have not raised my fist against any other human being in all my life..." Cole explained, "I was always too weak or everyone would always look at me like I was a child..."
Siarra shook her head and kissed his cheek. "When the time comes, you will defend me."
Cole blushed. He stuttered a bit before regaining his posture, "uh, okay... I will." Cole looked at Siarra's eyes for a moment before averting his mind from her, "we have to go now. It might not be safe, they probably have hounds to track us."
Siarra groaned. "I wish I knew spells better..." She muttered. "Maybe there'd be an easier way to get away then."
"I bet you there would be an easier way..." Cole said as he started walking away, "come on." He took Siarra's hand and pulled her in some direction leading out into the great forest.
Siarra sighed, feeling the toll from her use of magic when she still wasn't used to using it. The toe of her boot caught on the uneven path and she stumbled, falling into him.
Cole caught Siarra as she fell, her back was pressed onto his right arm. Cole stood immobile like that for a second before helping her up. He laughed nervously, "careful there."
Siarra blushed. "Sorry..." She mumbled. "I'm just...starting to feel really tired..." She told him. "I'm not used to using magic and I've used it twice already just today..."
"It's fine..." Cole said, "nothing to apologize for, I am the knight... Right?" He smiled and started walking.
"Cole..." Siarra said, feeling wobbly. "Please hold on..." She did look a little sick.
"Oh," Cole turned back, "then we'll rest for a moment before heading off..." He sat down and leaned against a wall.
Siarra slid down the wall to sit beside him. She rested her head on his shoulder and sighed. "Sorry...just give me a bit to obsorb some energy from the air. It's kind of actually really thin here..."
"Okay," Cole stayed there, leaning on the wall. He closed his eyes and listened to the soft winds that flowed through the alleys.
Siarra grew quite comfortable. So comfortable that she actually fell asleep.
Cole looked off into the sky when he noticed that Siarra was asleep. He raised an eyebrow and decided to let her sleep for a few moments. He observed her in the time being.
((Hey... I can't fin Puppet Master, will you mind bumping it?))
Siarra slept without stirring, nice and peaceful.
Cole waited, then he closed his eyes for a bit before waking Siarra up. He nudged her slightly waiting for a response. "Siarra," he whispered, "it's time to wake up."
Siarra mumbled something about bunnies and snuggled into him, not waking.
