    The Miracle Pilgrimage

    Ingrid held Camille by his hands while he practiced kicking. She smiled as he looked so serious while he was focused, his face scrunched together as he kicked and kicked. She would stand, pulling him along so he could feel what it was like to move. Ingrid heard a rustle, raising her head and lifting Camille up into her arms protectively until she saw Aldorto come into the spring with a big splash, covering mother and child with warm water. They shook their curls out, waiting for him to come up. "Oh no, you're okay...I guess you needed it more than we did. We didn't have to get close to the crater."She said, helping Camille wipe his face of water. "Luckily here is nice and warm." Ingrid would ease down onto a submerged stone, keeping Camille sitting on her lap while she wiped his face of soot. "The training grounds at the South Sea has springs like these..."She commented. "Makes me wish I was a student again..but living on an island has it's benefit."

    Ingrid sighed. "A question I'm still asking myself...but at least we made it out alive. Though, I don't know how long before we're caught by Kalmuli...rest though. I think Makiel is keeping her plenty busy."She said, rubbing his ear soothingly. She often did this with Camille when he wasn't feeling well or he was having a fitful night. It always put him right to sleep but adult elves had it a little harder. Ingrid moved from his ear to his hair then down his back a little. "It's nice being able to sit like this...I guess that's why Kalmuli has the room as it is. It's calming."

    The New Queen in Town

    Plume caught up with him, lost in thought but she would smile and shake her head. "Oh no, I didn't. The shopkeeper just gave me a little gift and said to use it wisely. I'm not sure if I should though..."She said, reaching into her apron pocket and pulling it out. It smelled much like normal perfume but with an allure she couldn't explain. It had a smell that reminded her of home that made her feel more relaxed...even if she was carrying the Queen's 'special item'. Kalmuli let out soothing exhales, letting his hands and the warm water seep into her. She leaned back against him, smiling and then leaned forward again. "I like how that sounds already...Do your thing."She said, relaxing with her eyes shut.

    What is a Wizard without his Wand?

    Kalmuli managed to get herself free but lay out on the ground, winded and exhausted. Though, it was less from the fight itself but more or less running around in the heat. Ingrid sat on the ground for a few minutes longer before going over with an ice spell in hand to cool the poor elf off. Kalmuli may have been a great mage but species-wise, she couldn't stand the heat and Mistral was an island with a hot climate. Ingrid would cool her former teacher off before healing herself. She could hear the conversation among the Uldwar family though, frowning. Not everyone seemed to agree with their dueling but even Ingrid had to agree with Illyana. She didn't like the idea of violence...but it was a necessity. Sometimes. Half of why Ingrid chose her fists instead of a blade was that she could control hurting someone. A blade had only one purpose. Ingrid gave Kalmuli a hand up once she was steady enough to move, keeping a freeze spell hovering around to keep her nice and cool while they went to join the family. Ingrid would bow her head. "My apologies if our duel upset your daughter...though I have to agree with her on violence. It's not something I would wish to expose to my own child any time soon...but having a mage as a mother, I suppose it's unavoidable."She said, rising again. "Thank you though...if you don't mind us looking a mess and joining you?" Kalmuli quirked the corner of her mouth. "Peace doesn't come without some kind of violence before it...but when it does come, it's good to never forget how you got that peace. Its a way of honoring the ones who brought it into being."She said, joining the Uldwar family at the table. Ingrid would take a seat beside her, rubbing her shoulder. Camille who had been sitting with Luis came over to Ingrid, crawling on her lap. Luis was the only one Camille really knew and chose to stick by the older boy.

    Ingrid shook her head, picking up his knife he lent to her and carried it over, turning the knife to pass it to him by the handle. "Take it with you just in case. Obsidian is good for protection...mana-wise anyway too."She said, bringing her arms back behind her where Camille was clinging onto her. She smiled and eased back down, bringing the hood of her cloak back down to shape shift again back to the brown, fluffy wolf form. Camille sat on her back with a toothy grin. "Be careful."She warned him before going back to her digging spots to check them over. again and give Camille a bit of a ride so he wasn't bored. Aldorto started climbing up and Ingrid looked up the mountain to make sure he would be okay. She raised her nose to the air, smelling for anything new. So far it was all just ash and the usual smells but she did smell wet soil not far. Carrying Camille down into the vegetation, she found a spring that was common around volcanos. A hot spring, Kalmuli called it. It smelled a little of sulfur but she stuck a paw into the water, finding it comfortable and reached around to grab Camille by his shirt with her teeth, easing him down. She dropped the hood of the cloak back, changing form again. "Alright, bath time."She said, unclasping the cloak and starting to strip off before she could take care of Camille. They were secluded enough that there wouldn't be any peepers. Ingrid would slip into the water, easing Camille down into it with her. His small hands ran along the scars on her biceps and her back looked like it had been through hell too. The Archmage exam had left her badly beaten but they would heal with the right ointments. "Ooo, nice and toasty..."She said, bringing warm water along Camille's back and along her chest.

    Ingrid felt him twitch, looking down and petting his hair until he got up from her lap. She managed a smile. "No, I'm alright. All this blood is yours but luckily you heal easily."She said, easing to sit more cross legged on the floor with him. She reached up and pat his head. "You'll be okay...of course, you must feel like you got hit by an avalanche." Ingrid would bring her hands to his shoulders and ease him back down again to rest his head on her thigh. She pet his hair again. "Rest for a little bit longer. After you rest up, we're going to have to clean up this room."She said, bringing a hand down to rub his ear.

    The New Queen in Town

    Was he a mind reader too? Plume jumped and juggled the box in her hands, grabbing it firmly to make sure she didn't drop it. Her heart was about to jump out of her chest. "I-I wasn't going to look!"She said, hugging the box. The shopkeeper would nod, rubbing her stomach. "Of course. We don't close until late so make as many trips as you need, young man."She said, going back around to the front counter. She saw Plume looking a little startled, looking to Lenix with a smile and then went to one of her shelves behind the counter and pulled out a tiny vial. She would gesture over to Plume. "Here. A little perfume sample." "Oh..."Plume accepted it. "Thank you..." "It makes the biggest men act like pining puppies." "What?" "That big fella is your boy isn't he?"The shopkeeper giggled but Plume shook her head, tucking the little perfume sample into her apron pocket. "My mistake but enjoy. Many blessings upon you." Plume blushed again. This had been a very confusing day already but she would keep it in mind. If not Lenix, maybe there would be someone in the future who would catch her eye? She would keep it in mind. She would walk out of the shop, button lipped and in deep thought as she started to lead Lenix back to the palace. Kalmuli sighed heavily as he started his work. She felt the tension melting away though the sensitivity of her sides a the moment made a few shivers and a few stray giggles out of her. She tilted her head as she felt wet lips and whiskers against her neck. "At least, not in the fun way...not for now at least."She said teasingly. "Mmm...but yes...I have a little place away from the world...by the South Sea." She reached up to his hair, running her fingers through it. "Miles of sea shore...woods to roam and springs to bathe in...Fresh fruit trees and seafood..."She let slip from her lips. "No one for miles and miles...the only way to get there is by portal or by a ship..."

    Ingrid could smell his blood in a mix that was like copper, herbs and alcohol. She nodded her head. "I found some but there would be more in the crater...I'm not sure I want to up there with Camille. It can be very toxic in large quantities."She said, grunting a little when Camille hopped on her back and hugged around her neck. "But if you can harvest some and bring it back, I have some containers to put it in. Ah, actually...it may be better if you took them with you. Getting it in your mouth and on your skin isn't good." Ingrid's form changed, the wolf fading away until it was just the elf Ingrid sitting on the mountain side wearing her cloak and Camille was hanging onto her shoulders. She reached under her cloak, retrieving the containers from her pouch and placing a jar in the dirt. "Use that...and we'll find a clean stream or a pond to wash off any residue. I don't want anyone to get sick."She said, reaching into gather a few more jars to start collecting the obsidian pieces and the sulfur into different containers. "Ah...here one more thing." Ingrid would reach back into the couch and pull out what looked like a plain sprig of a plant. A dried marigold. "Throw this in. A way of thanking the God here for allowing us to harvest his leftovers."

    The Pendulum III: Potions and Pleasantries

    A little while passed and Ingrid found herself asleep against the pillows with her hand still coiled in his hair. It was a dreamless sleep, her mind free to float around. It was these kind of sleeps she could see Lian face to face almost. The older elf didn't look pleased about the fighting but Ingrid assured her that it was just out of self defense and worried for Lian's lover. Or was he hers? That's what made her a little bit more confused about the nature of her relationship with Aldorto. Lian was the one who had more in common with Aldorto as a wild spirit. Ingrid who had a tender heart for the younger one and adored the older one, even if he caused trouble. It was a mess. Ingrid slept for awhile until a sudden back spasm from sleeping on the pillows woke her and she sat up, looking down at Aldorto who was cuddled up on her lap like a pampered pup.

    The New Queen in Town

    The shop keeper moved to open up the counter top so Lenix could pass through. She guided him back toward storage where completed orders were kept. There were three large crates of supplies with the royal seal painted on it. "Its those three, Sir. A remarkable Queen she is...all these are for pain and stress."The shop keeper noted, cleaning her hands on her apron. "Rumor has it she's got her own shops and everything for healing and magic. There's whispers she may open up shop here in Altissium. That would be good for my little shop here...What with about five other mouths to feed and all. Paid a pretty penny too. I've got groceries and supplies to last me the next two years." Plume waited out in the shop, looking around the herbs and the labels. Some she recognized for cooking, but she supposed they would be good for therapies. Queen Kalmuli was often making her own brews to reduce the amount of stress she was under...and she had to wonder about the unique item in the box she had commissioned was to help with that? Her eyes fell to the box but she decided against opening it. She didn't know what kind of punishments the Queen would dish out for being too curious. Kalmuli would nod, obeying his wish and leaning forward slightly and slipping her hair off of her neck. It had gotten a little longer without her usual trim and treatments. She felt his hands on her sides that made her flinch since the skin was still sensitive from taking the gown off. She had red marks from the boning and indentations in her skin. "Ah...careful now, I'm still getting the blood flow back to my ribs."She said but melted easily into his touch. Kal missed this. A lot. She missed the feel of fingers that weren't tightening a bodice or perfuming her skin. No gentle hands on her back as they tried to sway her decisions on important matters. His hands were genuine and healing.

    The Miracle Pilgrimage

    Ingrid searched around, digging up chunks of sulfur and kicking it up into a pile she had started. Having the claws definitely helped and she heard a clatter, her hackles rising a little and she shied away from it. She sniffed it, raising her head. "Thanks...but I should be okay."She said, returning to digging. she had to admit, the wolf form made things easier. Ingrid had found a good pile of sulfur off to the side, phosphorous that she was careful not to let touch her mouth and gently nudged chunks of obsidian above ground. The stone itself was beautiful but it had a second purpose. Obsidian had a natural mana resistance to psions and psychics so if you were trying to avoid having your mind read, it was good to have around. Kalmuli often used it in her magic items and Ingrid thought she would try her hand and making a few herself. Her gloves had been a success, but she could do with more items in her storage. Camille was looking around but was fascinated by Ingrid's wolf shape and Aldorto's. They were hugely different in size. Aldorto towered over Ingrid's shape that was the size of a normal wolf. He toddled over to her while she was nudging and examining the harvest she collected. When he got close enough, she eased down so he could cuddle with her. "Mama Wolf wolf."He chuckled. Ingrid wagged the tail behind her. A new sensation that she didn't know what to make of. "Mmhm...but not like Al. This is different."She said, Camille gently touching her ears in a way that made her bag leg move. "Not Wehwolf?"He asked. "Nope...Just a magic item. I'll go back to being normal later..."She said, giving his chubby cheek a lick and sniffing around him to make him giggle. Anytime she sniffed around his ears, he squealed and covered them, playing keep away as she tried to tickle him.

    The Pendulum III: Potions and Pleasantries

    Ingrid could feel the blood pour over her as the wounds were cleaning themselves and flushing things out. She felt gross already but she could always take a bath and clean it up later. She would heal the younger Aldorto, calmly petting his hair while he stayed passed out and her hand on his chest as she worked to heal. It was a better change of pace than the adrenaline rush earlier and the fluttering heart in he chest was nothing but a calm murmur. "What a mess you are..."She said, easing him over so he could lay on Kalmuli's vast pillow collection in her fortune telling room. They would both be in for an earful later. While she sat, it let her collect her thoughts...but also how she would have to remind him that he owed her a favor. Ingrid pet his hair, curling it around her fingers while he was out.

    Camille held onto Aldorto by his neck fur, smiling and giggling while he bounced a little while he walked. Ingrid kept up at an easy pace until she felt the need to make the change. She threw the hood of the cloak over, the cloak wrapping about her until it seemed to seal around her body to make a new shape underneath. Her body moved onto all fours, the hair growing all over until she was the size of a large wolf with a thick fluffy coat. When his pace picked up, this form could keep up with it easily, trotting a long with him. "Of course. The better he's acquainted with them, the more he'll understand them better."She answered but it was awkward with a longer mouth. She trusted that Aldorto was being careful and Camille was enjoying the bounciness of the ride, laughing and giggling with the wind in his curls. Up until the mountain, Ingrid was sniffing around along the ground as she searched for what she was looking for. She started going a little higher, just to the line where the vegetation ended and the heat of the volcano was bearable. "Just here. This is a good spot to gather ash."She said, using the front paws of her transformation to dig around. "It's good for finding phosphorous, sulfur and obsidian too." Camille watched her dig, giggling and squirming off of Aldorto, sliding off. "Woof woof!"He said, laughing at her while she dug around. "I know, I know...it's funny."Ingrid said, shaking herself out and continuing her digging.

    The last thing the elf wanted was to damage the room more because Aldorto was acting a fool. She still felt him on her leg, waiting until she was certain he let go before standing up herself. She put her hands on her hips. "And neither are you."She stated sternly, her scolding side coming out from being a mother. She could feel the presence fade and she reached up, her hand brushing one of the overhead lanterns in the room. With a quick fire spell, she lit the candle inside to light up the dark space so she could survey the damage in the room. Ingrid could see claw marks, torn fabric and bloody pillows everywhere. Shaking her head, she looked to the young host and approached him while the whisp that was the older Aldorto faded into nothing. "It better..."She frowned, kneeling down to assist the young Aldorto. She placed her hand on his chest, letting him lean on her while she worked on healing him.

    The New Queen in Town

    Plume blushed again, clutching the box close and shook her head. Considering how upset he had gotten around the Queen, she didn't want to expose him to what her purchase was if the box was opened by mistake. She managed a smile. "Oh no, I'm alright. I think I should hold onto it myself."She said, holding the box in one arm and reaching for her list. "Though the herb order is pretty big. I'll definitely need help carrying it." Plume would continue walking. From where they were, she could see the sea and the shine of the water. She wasn't born at Altissium Bay but she had come here to look for work since it was scarce in the town where she was from. She found the job as a handmaid with the temporary Queen Regent and that had been that. Still, she enjoyed the bay and the vibrant life that came and went around it. Plume lead them down a hill toward a shop at the bottom that smelled of vegetation, entering the shop and approaching the counter just as before. An elven woman was already there, grinding herbs in a mortar and pouring them into a jar that was displayed on on the shelves for sale. "Welcome, welcome."She said, setting her work aside. "I've come to pick up the Queen's order."Plume stated. "Ah yes, the large order. Are you going to carry it all by yourself?"The shopkeeper asked with a furrow. "Oh no, I have help."Plume said, gesturing for Lenix to come closer. She smiled and asked him politely, "Can you help lift the crates?" Kalmuli felt her skin expand and relax as the dress came off. She wasted no time slipping the rest off herself and sliding into the bath. The heat felt good against the welts around her ribs and lower back. She rubbed her sides sorely but looked up to smile up at him. "Fortunately, elvish beauty doesn't require much touching up."She said, easing a little deeper so she could relax up to her shoulders. "Though, I like your beard and hair. Something about a scruffy, wild appearance has always appealed to me. Probably because most human men back home were like that."She smirked a little. His offer was generous. She grinned and eased over while he was sitting on the edge of the tub folding her arms on top of his legs and looking up at him. "That sounds like a plan to me...I know just the place."
