The first thing he noticed before he opened his eyes was the smell of evergreens. He laid down in a prone position, and the ground beneath him was prickly with the needle-like leaves and sharp edges of pine cones. He forced his tired eyes to open and the first thing he saw was a shoe. His, probably, judging from how cold one foot felt compared to the other. Propping himself up on his elbow, Dakota turned his head slowly left to right to analyze his surroundings, before his gaze landed back on the shoe. He sat up with difficulty and put the shoe on, noticing how every movement felt sore. A buzz at the back of his mind made him not want to think about the why's and how's did he get in this place, but his soreness also discouraged him from finding a way back... to where, exactly? He frowned at his predicament and rested his head against a tree.

"Hm. Tree's tree's and guess what? More tree's. No food, water. On top of that, I'm lost!" Ash was complaining to herself with a childish pout as she moved through the mountains. All she did was leave her companions to look for supplies and now she doubted she'd find them again. It irritated her but her determination kept her from doing anything she'd regret. Unlike the mansion, she felt comfortable here which helped keep her temper down. It took a while for her to see a small ledge on the mountain but when she did notice it, she simply peered over the edge. Faintly, she could she a person resting on a tree. Hoping it wasn't a ghost, she called out, "Hey! You okay?!"
After she yelled, she moved away from the ledge and started her way down towards the person very quickly and was near him in no time.

Dakota looked up to see a figure running towards him and heard the feminine voice asking if he was okay.  Thank god, so these mountain weren't as remote as he thought.  Maybe it was a campsite and he lost his way, but this person could help him.  "Much better, knowing there's someone else in these mountains," he yelled back, and was surprised by the rasp of his voice.  Dakota wet his lips and cleared his throat, then tried to stand up and walk to meet the person halfway.  Although she would probably get to him first at the pace he was going.  He managed to stand up, but leaned against the evergreen for support and looked at the person.  She looked... vaguely familar, and when Dakato tried to search for her face in his memories, he realized he lacked any.  His expression turned to one of puzzlement and he stood silently looking at the ground.

"You don't sound or look any better but having people around is always great." Ash smiled, trying to be optimistic as she got to him. It was a sincere and almost worried kind of smile. There was a bag on her shoulder which held enough supplies for two or three days and she put it down next to him. She put her hands on her hips and looked him over before shaking her head. He, too, looked familiar but there were no memories that lead her to his identity so she let it be. With a sigh, she motioned for him to sit back down. Of course she noticed his expression and understood right away what it was for. So she addressed it. "You lost your memories too, huh?"

Dakota sat back down slowly, but not without releasing a hiss of pain as he felt a sharp jolt run down his leg. He looked at the girl with a confused expression and nodded his head. "Yeah, how'd you know?" he asked, before understanding. 'Too,' she had said. A gravelly sounding chuckle escaped him, but was stopped abruptly when he realized that laughing hurt. He closed his eyes and winced. "I figured you were a hiker or camper that knows this area. But you're also in the same mess as me. Got a name, girl?"

"Not exactly the same mess. I've got supplies and I'm not beat up. I guess you fell up there." Ash said as she kneeled down in front of him. She checked him for anything broken. Though worried she had this cheeky look about her. Anyways, she found nothing was broken but the person she was helping was still in terrible condition. Taking out a bottle of water from her bag, she handed it to him before sitting back on her heels. "Name's Ash. I'm pretty sure you have a name too. What is it?"

"Oi!" Dakota scowled. "Don't get smug just because I'm all bruised and battered and you're not." He begrudgingly accepted the water bottle and took a long drink. After a moment, Dakota realized he was being mean and softened his glare slightly. "Ash," he repeated the name. "Is that, ah, short for anything?" Trying to make small talk as a form of an apology, at the same time, Dakota tried to remember his own name. He shifted his sitting position because the protruding root of the tree were digging into his back, and something fell from his coat pocket. Dakota picked up the item, a wallet, and opened it. "My name is Dakato, I think, if I look anything like this guy in the pictute." He handed the wallet with the license to Ash. "Can't even remember my own face. Is that me?"

"Aw, poor guy. Hit your head a little too hard! Yes, it's you. And Ash isn't short for anything." Ash grinned like an older sister would when their younger sibling did something silly after taking the wallet. It wasn't a rude kind of grin but more of a playful one. She handed the wallet back and gently patted his head in a friendly way after stating he may have hit himself too hard. Her memory loss was bad, but not to that extent. "Anyways, it could be worse. At least you're alive." Ash stated in an almost warm, adult tone. She was being sincere this time and all of her expressions matched her different tones.

"Who are you, my mum? I don't need to be coddled," he swatted her hand away, but in a joking manner. Dakota looked at his license one more time before putting the wallet back in his pocket. "You're right, it could be worse. I'm alive and I ain't half bad looking. I could be alive and ugly." He had a wry smile on his lips and he folded his arms over his chest. "So, Ash, what's our game plan? I, personally, don't want to die out in the wild and I'm guessing you don't either. And though we've probably exchanged less than a hundred words to each other, we're probably the only ones up in these mountains. What do you say to pairing up for now?"

"Oh shut up. Alive and ugly isn't so bad." Ash grinned with her friendly voice. A laugh wasn't needed since her new companion was in no shape to stay in the mountains any longer. It was far too dangerous. Her adult switch flipped and she looked quite serious. More like an adult. She put her bang over her shoulder and stood, one hand held out to help him up. "We have to pair up and you seem like a nice guy. You are in no condition to be by yourself, I hate to say. First this to do is get out of here. Lean on me if you need to."

"You're a bit capricious, aren't you?" Dakota said, noticing Ash's behavioral switch from acting like a teen to acting like an adult. He took her hand and pulled himself up, but nearly stumbled over again when he was up on his feet. "Whoa!" Dakota regained his balance by leaning on Ash for support. "Ah, jeez, I can't even walk by myself yet," he scowled at the thought of having to rely on someone for even the most simple things, but it couldn't be help. "Let me know if I get too heavy, I'll, uh, crawl my way out of these mountains. Speaking of which, do you know where you're going?"

"I'm a lot stronger than you think..." Ash told Dakota as she held him up without any struggle. For a small girl, she sure did have hidden strength that would surprise any normal person. Of course it wasn't super human but still surprising. Especially when she was determined to do something. Getting both of them out of the mountains was her current goal but there some problem. Her adult switch again flipped and she laughed very worriedly. Ash had no sense of direction in nature. Only the concrete jungle. "Eh...um...don't get mad at me but...I have no idea. I got lost earlier, before I found you..."

"Don't get your knickers in a knot, I wasn't saying that I thought you were weak," Dakota grinned lopsidedly at Ash. "But directionally challenged? That's something I got correct." All joking aside, Dakota racked his brain for a hint on how to get out of the mountains. Going downhill would be there best bet, but not knowing the direction they could be headed would be a problem. "Let's try finding some high ground first, scope the area and see where we are," he suggested. "Then we'll head downhill when we see a way out."

"We can start at that ledge, where I first saw you." Ash suggested, turning the both of them toward the said ledge. It wasn't that high but it was the best thing in sight, so far. If they keep moving, some miracle might happen and Ash was going to ride on that for now. That was the best bet for now. She started leading them toward that ledge but was careful to keep things easy for Dakota. Last thing she needed was for him to be in even more pain than he already was. As she moved she decided to talk a little. "So, um, if you need to stop at any time, we can. No bear or whatever will be stupid enough to get in my face." Ash said jokingly with a cheeky grin.
