RE: [Quest] Into Norland we go! (Jotunland, Mairead)
Setting herself down, Mairead watched the roaring fire with some interest, though perhaps it was just the fact that the fatigue was beginning to truly settle in that caused the flames to seem so hypnotising. They still had quite a journey ahead of them and she already felt very out of place and vulnerable. As Garik shifted over, she smiled at the kiss and leaned against him for the comfort before letting him settle her down to sleep. She rested her head in his lap and watched the flames flickering.

"Wake me when you're beginning to tire, and I will take over," The woman spoke softly as she patted his knee before stifling another yawn with the back of her hand as her eyelids began to close of their own accord. She soon fell into a deep slumber which would allow Garik to move her off him should he need to without disturbing her too much.

Garik nodded to her request, but at the moment the gate remained closed and now properly locked this time about. His people had credit for some intelligence in defense at least! But as she dozed off, then the heavy breathing within his lap, he allowed to to stay within it for some three to four hours yet before setting her onto her pillow gently, checking the braces on the door and shifting into his own roll to sleep. Tomorrow was going to be a big day, and a longer stretch then before for feeling it at least.

Day 2

The night was uneventful, but the sun was covered by clouds this time. It gave to an overcast and a bit of a chill, but inside the cave at least it was warm from both the smoldering fireplace and general body heat. It was here that the gate remained forted up and no disturbances to be seen for now, and Garik would away about two hours after the sunrising up. For Mairead, it's up to her for before or after.

Sleeping the entire night through, Mairead didn't even stir when she was shifted to her pillow and at some point she'd edged closer to Garik and the bodily warmth he radiated that she'd grown used to over the months. Her subconscious was plagued with a few dreams that she couldn't make much sense of; people she knew, creatures she'd never seen as well as those she knew well, and as she began to stir the faint ghostly image that lost its shape before she could gain a solid memory of it.

It was perhaps a while after sunrise when the woman stirred, stretching a little where she lay before yawning and curling up closer next to the warmth beside her, draping an arm over him shile she cuddled up as close as she could for a moment. Opening her eyes, Mairead blinked away some of the sleep before smiling fondly at the man lying beside her, still asleep from what she could tell.

Glancing at the slowly dying embers, Mairead hesitantly pulled herself away from the warmth and up to stand before getting just a couple more small pieces of wood to toss on the fire and then having a drink of water and considering what to eat for breakfast. Rummaging in one of the saddle bags, she pulled out a few pieces of fruit and then sat by the fire as she began to cut them up and considered the journey they still had yet ahead of them, as well as the odd dreams that seemed to be fading from her mind the longer she was awake. As she prepared the light breakfast, the woman hummed quietly and distractedly to herself.

Garik grunted as he woke up soon enough, leaning up on an elbow as he gave a rub at his eyes. It felt early enough as it should, and his stomach rumbled to announce his wish of breakfast. Glancing over and noticing Mairead by the fire, he gave a small grin and gestured with an off-hand wave. "Morning, how was your rest?"

The movement from the previously sleeping Aesir caught Mairead's attention and she smiled over at him while he joined the rest of the waking world. Gathering the fruit she'd been preparing, she shifted back over to ward where he was still sitting, grinning fondly, and leaned over to give him a quick kiss.

"Good morning, heart," The woman settled next to him and offered some of the fruit, figuring that he would probably be hungry by now, "I slept well, though I noticed you did not wake me to watch over things at all." She scolded him very mildly and completely in jest as her little smile never left her lips while she spoke to him. She tilted her head though as she picked up a piece of fruit to snack on herself, speaking between bites.

"And you? I wished not to wake you since I don't know when you went to sleep and how much rest you needed."

"I find if for a while i can rest fairly well on short hours." He grunted, rubbng a spot on his lower back. "but the chill did settle into the sand a bit, seems I found a clump." He grunted once, having the mind to sit up fully and stand but not just yet. He looked a bit sheepish at that, then tilted his head. "I will make the effort next time, just it seemed this was your first time I think on such an overland trip of this distance. Rest at the beginning helps quite a lot when there's a need to ride quickly later."

Freeing up a hand, Mairead moved it to Garik's lower back, near where he was rubbing, "Are you alright?" She asked quietly, before then listening to his explanation for allowing her to sleep the whole night, and she gave a small nod, though grimaced slightly, "Its true, I'm not used to such overland travel, but I have gone long distances on Morgan before." She said, though she knew she'd worn herself on the voyage and so nodded and leaned up to offer Garik a light kiss, "I feel very good after the long solid sleep though, so thank you." She smiled gently, then offered up some fruit.

"Here, we should eat something. As you said, we have quite a ride ahead, so we will need to get our strength up however we can," Mairead tilted her head at him as her lips quirked into a small smirk.

"Oh nothin' that'll ease up as we go along," He wasn't however mentioning being against the running touch of her palm."But yes, sea travel and land travel while having some similarities definitely differs on the stress. For one thing, the sea has a pattern of sorts-and can be quite easy on the rider. Here, you tend to hike a lot or not have a way to cool yourself if it gets hot." Taking up the kiss offered upon his lips, his deft lips also closed about one of the pieces of fruit and popped it down. "A side of bacon with some porridge, and we'll see ourselves off after methinks."

With a finale he groans with a noise of someone comfy, standing up as he thrusts forward and rolls onto his feet. A surprisingly graceful looking movement considering his size. He moves to the packs to find the dried pork and wheat, grinding up the former in the latter to form the standard altear breakfast that one saw as travel rations for soldiers in Jotunland. Bacon porridge was better with other things in it as well, but it was servicable on it's own as it set the things to the pot wth two seasonings.

"Yes, I suppose that's true," Mairead smiled with a small nod at the differences between sea and land travel. She expected it was probably going to become much more difficult as the days wore on, but she was rather hardy and generally stubborn enough to keep pace when she had to. If worst came to worst, she could just nap on her horse after commending it to stay with Garik's, though she would be avoiding that as much as possible. She watched him as he got up, eating another piece of fruit herself while she shifted a little closer to the fire again.

"I'll cleanse some more water for us to fill our skins before we go as well, make sure we've got more than enough for the next day or so," One couldn't tell how far they'd be going on this leg of the journey, after all, she supposed. Reaching her senses out to the horses, she checked to make sure they were alright. They were sturdy, healthy creatures up here in the north and reminded her of the elk that the Kernowen-Cymri tribes rode. "I suppose we will be able to make some decent headway through the mountain path today?" She asked idly as she turned her gaze to Garik, watching him while he made the porridge, making a mental note that she should expand her very small knowledge of cooking.
