a very traditional adventure

Jann is on his way to the Caves of Fire and Night to retrieve a standard quest item therefrom. There is some forest (not of the capitalized or enchanted variety) between him and the entrance. He weaves his horse through trees. Ho hum. Whenever he gets under a relatively clear area of sky he consults the sun to confirm his direction.

A woman steps out of the treeline.

"Wouldn't happen to be lost, would you?"
girls_just_wanna: Neutral (well then)

"Dammit. Well, where are you going? Unless you're planning to set up shop in the forest, or something."

A muffled meow emanates from under her cloak. "Shut up, Leo."

"I like lost travelers. Either I help them and they owe me a favor, or they're rude and I get to curse them entertainingly. Do the Caves of Fire and Night have much fire in them? Because I could probably be pretty helpful if so." She shows off a lock of red hair.

The strange woman visibly suppresses the urge to clap her hands gleefully. "Oh, it's been ages since I did something. Would you let me fetch some personals from my tree?" At another meow, she adds, "Oh, I'm Sezan. And this is Leo." She pulls a sleek white cat out of one of her sleeves and waves his paw hello, which he tolerates with dignity.
girls_just_wanna: Happy (sparkly)

"Oh, Raxwell. Lovely place, I grew up near there."

She vanishes off into the trees, and returns a few minutes later not bearing much more on her person. Leo, however, has perched himself on her head rather than in her sleeves, and she carries a small satchel over her shoulder.
girls_just_wanna: Sarcastic (mmhm)

"Oh, I'd just as soon ride. Horses are wicked creatures, but I respect them and they respect me."
girls_just_wanna: Sarcastic, condescending (oh you)

"I don't see anything wrong with sharing a horse. There's certainly room."

"Excellent." She clambers deftly up the horse, emitting soft clinking noises from her cloak as she does so.

Leo hops over Jann's shoulder and clings to his shirtfront, as a test of character.

Leo minds his sharps very well!

"Petting, definitely. Really it's more to see what you'd do; not immediately petting him is a demerit, but asking is almost an acceptable substitute."
girls_just_wanna: Special (uh)

[personal profile] girls_just_wanna 2015-06-24 04:31 am (UTC)(link)
He appreciates this!

Sezan continues clinking, and after a few moments begins rearranging things in her cloak. "Sorry, I may have overpacked."
girls_just_wanna: Happy (sparkly)

[personal profile] girls_just_wanna 2015-06-24 04:35 am (UTC)(link)
"No, no. I'll just... hm."

She pulls out several small vials and drinks their contents, then places them all into a different pocket, which does not clink. "There we go. Didn't have to get rid of any essentials."

Leo meows long-sufferingly.

"Well, they all had to be empty before they went into the same expanded space. Don't want any of those accidentally mixing up your sleeve."
girls_just_wanna: Happy (gosh)

[personal profile] girls_just_wanna 2015-06-24 04:40 am (UTC)(link)
"Oh! In case I needed a bomb. Don't worry, I've got more."
girls_just_wanna: Special (uh)

[personal profile] girls_just_wanna 2015-06-24 04:42 am (UTC)(link)
"I mean. That definitely depends on your definition of 'drinkable'. I'm just peachy, or close to. You would be less peachy. And dead."

Sezan resumes humming to herself! Leo relocates to her head again.
girls_just_wanna: Menacing, seductive (toothsome)

[personal profile] girls_just_wanna 2015-06-24 04:49 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, that's cute. She likes this one.
girls_just_wanna: Neutral, menacing (Default)

[personal profile] girls_just_wanna 2015-06-24 04:52 am (UTC)(link)
Likely for the best, considering the tenor of her appreciative face!

"D'you like music?" she asks after reaching a natural stop in the humming. "Generally, I mean."
girls_just_wanna: Neutral (well then)

[personal profile] girls_just_wanna 2015-06-24 04:56 am (UTC)(link)
"Ah. I've got a fiddle up my sleeve, if you'd like, and a couple of ballads I can play?"
girls_just_wanna: Happy (sparkly)

[personal profile] girls_just_wanna 2015-06-24 05:02 am (UTC)(link)
"I do like a challenge."

She hauls herself around to sit sidesaddle and compensates well enough for the movement of the horse to play a decent ballad or two, singing with herself. (That much has always been a talent.)

Leo retreats into the sleevespace vacated by the instrument, hissing.

Sezan continues to appreciate this!
girls_just_wanna: Sarcastic, condescending (oh you)

[personal profile] girls_just_wanna 2015-06-24 05:09 am (UTC)(link)
Well, Sezan will probably put the fiddle away after a while to give Leo a break. But he doesn't mind her singing, so that she can do.

She encamps happily. "I'd forgotten how tiring horses are. How can it be so much work to sit down?"

"Yes, I most certainly do."

She looks at the firewood and hums a tone, which leads to a small burst of flame that catches on to the tinder. Then she grabs a bit of the fire and fiddles artfully with it, shivering happily.

Once she's contented herself with her fire for the moment, she lets it dissipate and helps with setup.

"I wanted to do a bit of that to pass the time on the ride, but people get so touchy about a bit of fire. Plus, it might've scared your horse. So instead I fiddled while nothing burned."
