Shiloh shrugged, she wasn't a good cook, she could cook, but not too well.
"A'rian's ss'ill slee'in', don' wanna wa'e him." she explained, she didn't like cooking that much so it seeme dlike a perfectly good excus eto not attempt to cook meat over a fire in the middle of the woods.
Shadow sighed and set the meat out on two stones he'd washed for them. "Well it's time to wake anyway. He needs to eat and get ready to start moving again." There was pain starting to show through. The way he held himself adn even the tightness of his voice spoke of how much his bones ached.
Shiloh nodded, she shook Adrian's shoulder gently and mad ehim sit up. She then walked over to the fire,
"I'll coo'." she stated. She put the stnes in the fire, right on the coals so the meat would cook well and fast.
"You can chan'e ba'' in'o haws." she stated.
Shadow sighed. "Very well. Don't forget my pants." He mumbled. He walked away, just out of sight, and changed back. He returned with his pants clutched in his teeth and dropped them in her lap. He felt much better as a horse.
Shiloh grabbe Shadow's no unneeded pants and tossed them in the bag. She then gingerly turned the meat over on the rocks,
"A'rian!" Shiloh called, "Wa'e up, ki''o." she called as she watched the meat
Adrian shot up. In a mere second he went from boy, to scales, to dragon, roaring at Shiloh with terror in his eyes. He was breathing fast and hard, a wild animal that had been startled. Yet still his dragon form was somehow...cute. small and childish. Adorable.
"Ca'm dow' ki''o." Shiloh said nervously, she pulled the meat out of teh fire and walking over to Adiran put one on top of the saddle bag near him,
"Ea' up." she told him, She wans't partcularly frightened of him, he was too cute for her to feel scared.
Adrian was still scared, but slowly he calmed, looking down. Reluctantly he accepted the meat and ate every bit. He was still hungry, but he didn't want to complain. To have any food was something to be thankful for. He sighed, waiting for his body to let him go back to being human.
Shiloh barely nibbled her meat, she got a quarter of tehw ay through when she got full,s he wans't really hungry,
"He'e A'rian, your a gro'n boy, ea' up." she said handing teh rest to him. She stood up and put the sadle bag on Shadow's back, tightening tehs traps and put teh fire out with dirt, smothering the coals.
Adrian snapped up the meat quickly, sighing when it was gone. He nodded his thanks and continued to wait patiently. Finally, he could shift back. The problem was that he didn't have any clothes now. He'd torn them all when he shifted. "Um...sorry..."
"Um..." Shiloh said, her extra tunic had been torn, she reached into the saddle bag and pulled out her extra set of trousers.
"He'e." she siad tossing them at Adrian, she looked around for something that could be used as a belt and saw Star's saddle. She took the saddle off adn detatched the strap and tossed that at Adrian,
"He'es a bel'." she added, she took for a plac eto hide the saddle.
"Thanks." Adrian mumbled, quickly pulling on the pants. He climbed onto Shadow's back and sighed. "I'm sorry, I just...I get startled if I'm awakened in an unfamiliar place." He told Shiloh. "I'm startled when I'm awakened at all, most the time." He grimaced.
"You mus' go throu'h c'othes fas'" Shiloh commented. She hid tehs addle in the bushed and signaled Adrian over to Shadow as she mounted,
"Go''a mo'e." she explained.
(Don't know if you realize: "he climbed onto Shadow's back and sighed" and "signaled Adrian over to Shadow as she mounted" are contradictory :P)
Adrian nodded, closing his eyes. "I didn't usually sleep with clothes at all. It saved a lot of trouble. I'm just not going to sleep naked out in the open."
Shadow started to trot forward, gradually picking up the pace to let the pair of riders get used to it. Soon he was in a full gallop, Star keeping up only just.
Shiloh glanced at the trail they were going on, she was wodnering how lng they'd travel today. WOuld they reach their destination? If not how many more days until they caught up. She kept her arms around Adrian, clutching the pommel of the saddle tightly.
Shiloh nodded as she listen to Adrian, taking in what he was saying but looking around and taking in the scenery as she did.
(Are we ready to skip to some action?)
(Would you be able to kick us off on that or shall I try to think of a good start?)
((Would you mind kicking it off?))
Soon they reached an old, ruined fortress. But part of it appeared in tact, and inhabbited. Shadow stopped and let Shiloh and Adrian get off, so he could shift and speak to Shiloh. "This is it, I'm certain. Nathan is there." He told them as he pulled on his pants.
