Something that doesn't belong. (Open)
Date: Beltaine |12 Crann | 1722 ATA
Time of Day: Early morning - Sunrise
Weather: Sunny and warm with a hint of a cool breeze.
Location: Starts on the Outskirts of the city near the main gate.
---
The outskirts of the city were bustling with traffic as the sun peeked up over the horizon. Farmers bearing loads of vegetables, fruit, hay and all other manner of things began transporting their goods into the city for sale. The air was sweet and the breeze was gentle though already the air showed signs of warming. The morning had all the signs of a beautiful day in the making.

There is something to be said for the comfort of silence, a state of being that Saoirse knew all too well for most of her life. She stood on a high up branch of a tree just outside the main gates of the city, her form masked by the branches though anyone looking that far up would likely notice something amiss up there. She peered down at the crowds, her eyes a deep green as she searches for something in the masses. There was a nagging temptation to draw her bow with so many people close by but she kept herself calm. Breathing slow. She kept watching for what she was sure she would see but never once did a line of sorrowful and chained beings trudge down the path. It -almost- felt as though she might be safe enough to go inside. Almost. Slowly she made her way down the trunk of the tree, easily skittering from branch to branch as she'd done many times before. Once she reached the bottom, she tugged a rugged leather hood up over her head and wild blonde hair, slipping another scrap over her nose and lips to hide the markings on her cheeks. Quietly and timidly she made her way along the edge of one of the low lying walls, seeking a spot to climb over rather then making use of a gate.

RE: Something that doesn't belong. (Open)
It had been a successful trip, that was assured, and Aeden and his sister had headed home to the city with their remaining goods in tow - a few boxes of poisons, and a packet of drugs for an associate in another of the Order Gangs, along with their respectable wares, too, but... Their steps were light, as they headed through the woods, intent on tracking down their usual crossing point - Abbey joining her brother to ensure he crossed safely before she would scale the wall before them, just another easy day, another easy trip.

Well, minus a few surprises, it seemed.

It was rare that they came across anyone else trying to find a spot along the wall that would be an easy crossing point, but it seemed today was one of those days. Abbey signaled, and the two slowed, moving up to watch from the shadows for a few minutes as they watched the young girl trying to scale the wall.

It was quite against Abbey's own intents that her brother stepped out from cover, purposefully stepping on a twig to let the girl know of his presence before letting out an easy, friendly drawl, smiling slightly and utterly casual. "You know, this isn't the best spot for a crossing. We usually go a little further along. Higher, but more handholds."

The two - and there are two - in the woods are a matched set, tall and cloaked, though the one speaking has pulled his hood back, leaving his long red hair, gleaming here and there with touches of bronze and tied back at the nape of his neck visible, along with the broad friendly, far-too-amused smile on his face. The one at his side jabs him with an elbow, shooting him a quick glare with jade eyes. ( Her hair is loose, and a few red curls are visible, loose outside of the confines of the hood of her travelling cloak. )

They were both clad in trews, and the speaker had a bag over one shoulder, much like his counterpart, though the silent one has their bag on properly, and both had longswords that were quite visible, strapped to their sides. Neither seemed to be about to make a run or grab at the unfamiliar girl, however, even as the other steps forwards to stand next to the speaker, one hand resting on a hip.

The voice behind her caused her to turn swiftly and crouch low with her back to the wall, her short bow slid from it's holster on her back, an arrow notched but not drawn as she glared at the figure with a great deal of suspicion. In silence she pondered his words, perhaps thinking a bit too long and hard on why a stranger would offer such "helpful" advice. The color of her eyes shifted to a muddy brown and slowly she nodded to the words of the one who spoke, correcting her position as she stood so that she could walk sidelong with her back to the wall and keep her bow trained on them as she started in the direction of the "better handholds."

By all appearances, the lass appeared to be ready to flee the moment she rounded a corner, though she had a good bit to go before she came to any point on the wall where she would not feel that she had to fear an attack at her back. She truly seemed as though she intended to sidestep the entire way to the new climbing point. As she moved, her hood caught on a jagged point and was tugged back a little, causing the lower mask to slip and reveal the right side of her face.

Aeden watches her nervous mannerisms with interest, nudged his sister, and grinned right back. His eyes flashed from their bright jade to a pale pastel pink, acknowledgement of her own shift, though his has nothing to do with his own emotions - he recognized the trick, though, old hat from his own early learning. He raised the hand that was near his sword so it was kept away from the blade, wiggled his fingers. "Hope you don't mind, but we're passing for the same reason as you. No reason to be jumpy, getting in a fight this close to the wall would draw far too much attention to our favorite point to sneak in, and my dear sister and I have no intention of having to slog through watery canals to get home."

His eyes stray as the twigs reveal her face, and his brows raise just the slightest fraction. He glances at his sister a moment, brow furrowing before his eyes turn back, fading back to green, and his raised hand taps the side of his face. "You've a little something here, have you tried to wipe it off?"

RE: Something that doesn't belong. (Open)
Abbey took slow steps forwards alongside her brother, lips pressed into a thin line beneath the leather covering the lower half of her own face. Her own thought - that, perhaps, they should leave the little one to cross on her own, in her own time, without having two full-grown Sidhe at her back, jumpy as she was, quashed by her brother's actions...and, admittedly, her own curiousity.

She caught the change of colour - Body Charms, perhaps she's older than she seems? Still so small, though. Mnh. - and... caught the writing, recognized the words, and sighed, holding up her own hands, palms flat, as her brother continued to press. "Brother, has it occurred to you that perhaps you're being a downright Cíoch?"

She nearly drops her bow when he comments on her markings, holding her weapon awkwardly with one hand while she reached up to roughly shove the mask back into place with clumsy and panicked motions. Eventually she gets the leather to lie flat against her skin once more. Her breathing is rapid and her eyes shift to a dull rust red with a hint of black around the edges. Her hands return properly to her bow and she re-notches the arrow swiftly, this time drawing it. She nudges her head to the side, clearly threatening them but either incapable or unwilling to give them a reason for her actions.

Her gaze flickers back to the wall for a moment, a hint of yearning in her gaze before she shakes her head and an instant after, she looses the arrow on a tree to their right before making a break for it back into the woods. The wall was far too active today, perhaps she ought to have waited until nightfall to try to cross.

Aeden snorts. "Dún do bheal, Sister." He doesn't manage to dodge the boot to his foot, and chokes back a snicker, clearly untroubled by the implied threat, for whatever obscure reason he might have, his eyes turning back to the girl and rolling as he lets out an affronted sigh. "You keep them for sentimental reason, or 'cause you're too daft t' figure out how t' take them away? You can do th' trick with your eyes, you can't do it with your skin?"

He taps his fingers on his skin again, and dark inky forms swirl out, painting a beastial mask. "See? It's e-."

The arrow flies.

"...sy."

His head turns to glance at the arrow in the tree, then after the retreating girl.

"Skittish."

A wind started up as the arrow was let loose, died as Abbey realized the trajectory wasn't one that would do them harm. "Feckin' show-off, brother, you spooked the little thing."

She turned, gripped the arrow, and wrenched it from the trunk of the tree, examining it a moment before tapping his shoulder with the shaft. "Oy, I've got nasty tattoos all over my face and I'm spooked, clearly I need some daft feckin fool t' spook me worse. Danu alone, Aeden."

She shakes her head. "Whatever, let's get moving, sooner we're back in, sooner we'll be home."

RE: Something that doesn't belong. (Open)
She ran swiftly through the underbrush of the woods and grabbed a tree as she ran past it, swinging around and then up to hold onto a branch above. Quick as a wee monkey, she grabbed the next limb and began free climbing to the top, scampering onto a branch to get a good view of the wall from her new perch. She caught sight of the twins still talking where she'd left them. They'd seen her marks. By all rights, she should kill them as she'd yet to let anyone else who'd come across her live. She closes her eyes and takes a steadying breath. No. There had been logic in the words of male. Not this close to a city, there was no need to bring attention to the quiet areas she'd found to observe from. She did not want to leave just yet.
