"That's the girl!" One shouted to the other. Nathan groaned in annoyance. "If you take my horse and run, I'll track you down and gut you." He grumbled to her, getting down. "Let me deal with this."
Shiloh grimaced, she hadn;t realizzed this guy had seen her take his horse,
"I ain'' go' your horse." she siad staying up on Nathanial's steed, one arm stilla round him to keep herself from falling off and the othe ron her knife.
(Just to be clear on things, it was Nathan who spoke and got off the horse. I apologize, usually I make a new paragraph for another person speaking...)
((Oh...sorry. Um Lemme repost))
Shiloh stayed up on the horse, her hand clutching her knife, one reaching forward adn holding the horse's reigns. She watched teh scene unfold, her eyes mostly on the man that had said 'That's the girl'. She was verysuspicious adn tense, ready to fight if needed.
The man who recognized her dismounted his horse. "You are charged with stealing a horse!" He barked at her, gripping the hilt of his sword.
Nathan moved between him and Shiloh. "She is with me. I suggest you turn and leave."
"Does i' loo' li'e I have a horse?" Shiloh asked, she didn't move off the horse though and stayed still, she wans't really going to get down, she'd be lower than he would, she needed a good vanatage point.
"You stole my horse and we both know it!" He growled. "I saw you taking it. And you followed him!" He pointed at Nathan.
Nathan just growled, purposefully letting the scales surface, his eyes changing. His nails became like claws, and his teeth became sharp. "Leave."
"Don' have your horse a'ymore." she said. She glanced at Nathan, who was shifting. His horse seemed ued to the change but the other two horses shied at the sight and nearly bolted if they ahdn't been held back.
(Please play the other man, it's difficult to have to play everyone in the scene but Shiloh.)
((OK, I didn't want to powerplay him without your permission...didn't know if you had plans. (Whenever you want me to PP a charrie just tell me.(I hope you don't mind me naming the guy, it's easier than saying 'the man' all the time))))
The man, who's name was Roland, glared at the now transforming man. He was nervous, but didn't want to show it, he didn't want to appear like a coward in front of his brother, who was the other man he'd brought with.
"Look, I don't have an arguement with you." he said to the scaley man, "I just want my horse back, she stole it and she will give it back or pay for it." he snapped. His broher who still sat on his horse looked nervous,
"Roland let's just go, you can get another horse." he said.
"No Grubert I'm not leaving without her paying up or getting my horse back." ROland snapped.
Nathan snarled. "The horse is between here and town somewhere, she let it run free. There is no money. This isn't worth your life, 'Roland'. I can take a blade to the heart and still snap your neck. Do you want to see if I'm lying?"
"It's my horse, and it's not your buisness beast-man!" Roland shouted, Roland was famous in town for drinking to much, acting macho, and fighting. Grubert shook his head,
"Roland, let's go, this isn't worth it!" he snapped. His borther didn't listen,
"Look man is she your slave or something? Or is she your lady? Daughter?" he asked,
"Cause if she ain't any of those than back off and let the little coward fight for herself." Roland snapped, he pulled a short sword from the sheath hanging of his right side, he was left handed.
Nathan shook his head. "I don't get involved with a lady if there's the possibility of another helping her, but Shiloh is alone here, and I'm not leaving her to the mercy of you and him." His voice grew more like a growl as he spoke. More scales started appearing. At that rate it looked like he was going to be completely covered in a minute. "Roland, you're about to be torn limb from limb. Last words?"
The two strangers' horses bucked and Roland's kicked and left but Grubert controlle dhis,
"Roland, leave now." Brubert said. He reached for his brother's arm to pull him up on his horse. ROland looked shocked at the pretty much fully transformed dragon,
He didn't want to cow though, he wanted to prove he wasn't a coward. He glared at Nathan and pointed the short sword at him.
"ROLAND" Grubert yelled.
Nathan lunged at them, letting out a roar. He fully transformed then, his clothes ripping. He looked like a human-sized dragon, with wings and all. His claws ripped at Roland's flesh. His scales were too thick for the blade to even penetrate. Nathan's horse darted away a safe distance, knowing its master was out of control.
Shiloh stayed stock still, watching her eyes seemed cold as she took it all in. She'd seen violence, nothing like this, different, but she still never showed emotion during it.
Ronald fell quickly, his body hitting the ground as blood pooled underneath him, his eyes were wide and his mouther open. Ateries had been slashed, he was dying quickly and kenw it, he turned to his brother, Grubert who stared at him.
"Youa re a mruder." Grubert said to the dragon, he turned his horse and galloped away from his now dead brother as fast as his horse would go. Grubert wsn't going to fight the dragon man, he was going to find someone who would though, he knew he could get the town up and arms about this, maybe even bring it higher tha that.
Nathan roared at the fleeing man, completely wild and not even comprehending words anymore. He tore at the dead body beneath him, insuring he was dead. He then turned his eyes on Shadow, growling at her as he slowly walked toward her. The horse stayed stone still.
((I assume you mean Shiloh...unless the horse is Shadow...))
Shiloh watched the man or more of beast stalk towards her.
"Ca'm dow'." she siad attempting to keep her vocie flat, over Nathan's shoulder she saw the torn flesh and splattered blood of what used to be Roland. She moved her hand form her knife handle, hoping that showing no hostility and not threatening to fight would calm him down.
(Sorry, I meant Shiloh. I was thinking of what to name the horse and Shadow came up. Sorry again for the mixup.)
Shadow, the horse, was obviously nervous, but it stood its ground. Nathan huffed, growling with a deep rumble in his chest. He turned and started walking. Shadow followed obediently.
When Nathan lost control, he couldn't just immediately pop back. It was a slow process of regaining control. The start was recognizing he needed to change back. Then speech returned. Then he started to change back to a man. Then the scales faded. And last the eyes. This could take hours, or even days. Once it took well over a month.
Shiloh relaxed slightly as nathan turned away. She watched him closely, wodnering how long he would stay a dragon-man-like-form.
Shiloh thought hard, how was she supposed get someone so powerful to follow her? After all he barely trusted her to begin with. She fiddled with her shirt nervously as she was apt to do when thinking hard.
Shiloh needed a better thought out plan, she hadn't been informed about the full-extent of this man's power, but now she was too deep in this mess to pull out. She looked around at teh scenery, tugging at her shirt string unconciously.
