Shloh heard Nathan growl and glanced towards sound of the creature. It sounded small, probably a rabbit or mouse or sqirrrel. She glanced back at Nathan, still keeping her droopy side in the dark. She used brought her knees up and rested her arm on her knee, looking down at the ground.
Nathan sighed, relaxing after a while. He closed his eyes, but he wouldn't sleep. Not if she didn't. It looked like it was going to be a very long night. He really didn't need this. Somewhere inside he knew Shiloh was up to something, and part of him was curious to know.
Shiloh lay down and closed her eyes to, trying to stay awake as long as Nathan was but she quickly dropped off into a semi-light sleep. She curled up, resting her head on her arm for lack of a pillow.
Nathan peeked at her and watched her for a while. He finally drifted off into a very light sleep, stirring at the smallest sound. It was obvious he wasn't one to let his guard down in a situation such as this.
(Yes, do you just want to go to them waking up, or further?)
(Well I don't have any ideas right now. The second option was for if you had an idea...)
(Okay, I'll be thinking too.)
(Hello? I still have nothing. Better to just play forward until something comes. Not just leave it and forget about it -.-)
(It's not quite...solid. I really think we just need to start out the morning and play what feels right. one of us is bound to start a conflict in there somewhere.)
((Yeah, sorry I've been bus todya and have a nasty headache, I'll post now.))
Shiloh woke with a start, she hadn't realized she;d drifted off. She looked around glancing at Nathan. He was still sleeping, good she had time to be wash. She walked down to the stream and ducked behind a bush, stripping down and getting into the water to clean up. The water was cold at this time in the morning.
(I've been away from home all day, posting from my phone. I wasn't really in any position to make a substantial post for this anyway.)
Nathan's eyes shot open and he looked where she was supposed to be. When Shiloh wasn't there, he tensed up and looked around. She didn't appear to be anywhere near to harm him. He relaxed and stood, stretching with a yawn.
Shiloh finished bathing, dried off and pulled her clothes back on, leaving her hair loose so it would dry right. She loosely tied her shirt and enetered the campsite again. Nathan was up, Shiloh ignore dhim while she slipped her shoes and on and bent over to tie them at the very tops to keep them on.
Nathan glanced at her, frowning. "Shiloh, why are you really following me?" He asked, wondering if he could get her to admit it if he pretended to be absolutely certain, even though he wasn't quite yet.
Shiloh stood up,
"Nee' a ri'e." she siad quietly she ran her finigers through her hair, flicking water from it. She decided to just pull it up before they started out becase she didn't want to get it in her face while they travelled. She pulled it into a pony tail and then braided it.
"I doubt it." Nathan said, crossing his arms. "There's more. You picked me for a reason. The fact I walked out and left you to the mercy of drunk men in a tavern should have sent you off, not attracted you. I'm a very careful man, Shiloh. I check every person I come across. You're not adding up right, meaning you're a fake."
"You lef' you di'n' join in...w'ere I come from 'at's 'e bes' you ge'." Shiloh answered, she finished her braid and looked at Nathan. She frowned at him, she was sort of telling the truth, she did think that leaving insteda of joining in was the best a guy could do. She crossed her arms on her chest protectively.
He shook his head, sighing. "You still don't add up." Nathan mumbled, getting the horse ready and climbing up on its back. He offered a hand to her. To him, a man was only good if he'd stand up for a lady.
Shiloh grabbed his hand and pulled herself up. She wrapped her arms around his waist and pulled herself close to keep on, pressing up against him,
"Le's go." she suggested.
Nathan rolled his eyes, considering he was obviously planning on that. He kicked the horse and they started forward, riding an hour or so before they came onto a road. That's when the trouble started. There were a pair of guards from the town previous riding in their direction, and one of them shouted when he spotted the pair on the horse.
Shiloh saw the soldiers, her hand slippe dto her side where her knife was. She gripped it, she ha dto be careful or else she'd give herself away, she couldn't use the full extent of her training, she didn't want him to be more suspicious than he already was.
