Hold on, Arianni? Can't you feel nature's call? It's well? There's a reason why I gave you the bath and undressed you myself.

*Upon seeing the confused look on her face, Reginald gently took her hand.*

Come, let's get away from this house. I'm going to teach you how to communicate with nature.

Arianni blushed at the reminder. "What.. What do you mean, the call of nature? The closest thing I have to a connection to nature is an affinity for metals that allows me to sense and control them to an extent." She followed him, confused and curious, trying to figure out what he was talking about. "I mean, I did somehow manage to save Phyros, it was how I ended up linking us together, but I have no idea how I did it, or if I could do it again if I wanted to."

*They were now far away from the house, and away from any eavesdroppers. Reginald took his hoodie off, giving Arianni a clear view of what he was hiding. His ears. Around his head was a white wrapping that kept the tip of his ears from extending out. As he unwarpped the wrapping, his ears extended out. They were the ears of a elf. Reginald only revealed himself to her because he could sense that she was like him, a half elf. But, she had no idea of her origin. He had no plans of informing her of that, but he was going to teach her how to communicate with Nature. This would help her find her little friend. He began to talk to her as gently as he could.*

As you can see, I'm a half elf. I think if your going to trust me, then you should know my secerts. *He put the wrappings in his pocket* I can teach you how to communicate with nature, after this quick lession, you can ask our surroundings if they've seen your friend. I can not ask that question myself because I do not know how the little guy looks like. It's dumb, I know, but communicate with your feelings.

Arianni looked at his ears curiously, a small smile on her face. "Oh, that explains it. I thought there was something different about you, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it. Then again, I haven't met very many half-elves so far that I know of. The ones I have met were nice enough for the most part, though. There was that one who was a jerk, but then again he did get caught in the rain and pushed into a mud puddle before he ran into me, so I can't say I blame him for being grumpy." She grinned at him. "Do you really think I'll be able to do it? To communicate like that? I've never tried anything like that before."

((thinking of possibly rescuing, and thus getting, a second summon soon. Nothing big, a small wildcat maybe XD Is that okay?))

*Reginald smiled at her, giving her a gentle look.*

You don't think it's odd that you attract so many half elves? Anyways, yes, I do believe you can learn to communicate with Nature. We all have that potential inside us. (by us, he means half elves, but you would interpret that statement as living beings)

*Reginald sat down on the ground in a yoga position.*

You should sit down just like me.

((that's fine. Make sure you do a little plot on how you get it and then edit it in your character sheet))

Arianni giggled. "Maybe, but then again I am a traveling blacksmith, and even half-elves sometimes need their weapons, armor, or tools repaired. Why wouldn't I end up running into them now and then?" She smiled, sitting down across from him and mimicking his position. She shifted a bit to get more comfortable, then sat patiently, waiting.

((kk will do. Can use it as a reason for why Phyros hasn't made his way back to her yet, too, get two birds with one stone XD))

*Reginald closed his eyes as he places his elbows comfortably on his knees. The tone of his voice demanded complete authority.*

Make sure you copy the pose I'm in now. As sit there, quietly, I want you to keep your thoughts in a blank state. As you remain thoughtless, I want you to feel your chest, shoulders, rib cage and belly as you inhale the pure, crisp air of the oasis. Make sure you make no effort to control your breath, only allow the air to enter your body naturally. If you brake your concentration, simply return to that physical feeling of inhaling the air. Maintain this feeling for several minutes. Eventually, you'll began to discover the hidden potential in your blood. Everything that is physical around you well cease to matter, and you'll began to open your mind to things that were hidden in plane sight. You'll began to truly feel the presence of the cactus and palm trees. Once you can feel there presence, you'll be connected to the cactus and palm trees that are far away from us. This will help you extended connection to your little friend.*

*Reginald opened his eyes, and observed Arianni's body. He watched as her chest slowly.*

Arianni smiled slightly as she recognized the meditative state he was guiding her to, it was the same technique her father had used to help her tap into her affinity for metals for the first time. She followed Reginald's guidance, letting her mind go completely still, blocking out the 'voice' of the old metal arrowhead that was embedded in the tree behind her to let her mind open up. She could feel her mind reaching of it's own accord for something, and didn't try to stop it, wondering what it was. A small gasp escaped her as a disorienting sensation went over her, making her glad she was sitting down as a rush of images flooded her mind, all in a jumbled mess. "I... I don't think that worked quite as it was supposed to.... Oh, crap, if he doesn't hold still I think I'm going to be sick..." She looked up at Reginald, a little pale in the face, her eyes had taken on a strange bluish cast over the amber. "I think I found him... Sort of...."

((couldn't think of what to put for er connecting with nature XD my brain didn't want to do what I told it to, it kept coming up with this scenario instead XD I should probably get to bed before my brain comes up with any more potentially bad ideas....))

*Reginald hepled her get back up on her feet, and then handed her a flask filled with water.*

Drink up Arianni, so we can hurry to where you felt the little guys presence. He might be in danger. Also, practice what you just did at least once a day, and you'll soon be able to communicate with Nature without having to meditate.

Arianni took the water and drank gratefully, blinking repeatedly as her eyes returned to normal, the images fading as quickly as they had come. "Thanks... I don't think it was Nature I connected to, per se... I think I actually connected to Phyros, it was like I was seeing through his eyes. I wonder if it's because of the same weird connection we have that lets him hide on my skin as a tattoo. Whatever it is, I could see he was in some sort of small cave of sorts, and he wasn't alone, though I couldn't tell what was with him." She closed her eyes again for a moment, letting the sense of Phyros' presence that had lingered with her guide her as she turned slowly, stopping when she felt she was going in the right direction and opening her eyes again. "I kind of felt something else at first for a moment, but then suddenly he was there, and I couldn't sense anything else. It was a bit scary.... I think he's this way." She started off in the direction she sensed him in, hoping Reginald would understand what she was trying to say.

*Before she could continue walking, Reginald stopped her by gently grabbing her left arm with his right hand*

This cave. I think I know which cave you speak of. It is nearby, and you are heading in the direction. But you must be careful. Depending on the time of the month, there could be pack of displacer beasts. There a very dangers, intelligent, and rare creature. But they find great joy in causing harm to other living creatures. There the natural enemy of the Blink Dog. There the reason I'm back in my homeland. I'm here to hunt them down. Let's hurry.

*Reginald rushed off, drawing his bow.*

((Don't worry, there not in the cave. Whatever is in the cave is up too you ))

((Lol I was planning on having it so that Phyros and the wildcat were in there, Phyros had found the 'cat and was hunting for it, trying to help it. Arianni and Phyros have very similar mentalities LOL If you think it would work out, we could have it that the 'cat had been attacked by the beasts and managed to escape barely, since in order for Arianni to create the link that lets her Summon, she has to use her third power on it, and she can only do that if it's dying))

Arianni looked up at Reginald, nodding in understanding. "I'll be careful, don't worry." Pulling her daggers from where she had concealed them, she hurried forward again, following him towards the cave.

((You don't have to do that, plus, a displacer beast is very violent and tenacious. Let me pm you a picture of a displacer beast))

*As they arrived at the cave, Reginald quickly drew an arrow. Lightning began to coat around the arrow head as he slowly entered the cave. Inside, what they saw was.....*

((Okay XD I'll let you lead the way then XD))

Arianni followed close behind him, letting her eyes adjust to the darkness of the cave. Inside, Phyros was dozing curled up around a small, tan-and-white wildcat with unusual markings, the wound along his wing and side already halfway healed. The cat was purring softly, it's head resting on Phyros' back. It lifted it's head as they entered, it's purr going silent as it watched them warily.

*Reginald saw 2 creatures. The Dragon looking one must've been Phyros. The other one, a wild cat, a native to the desert sands, was wounded.*

That Wild cat, it must've fought off a displacer beast. Quickly, they have the advantage in this dark cave. Grab your little friend and see if you can do anything for the wild cat.

*As the events unfolded inside the cave. Outside of it, about 1 mile away, a pack of Displacer Beasts rushed towards the area of the cave. One of creatures was missing it's left eye. The wound was still fresh, and it was very angry.*
