The heat had been overwhelming lately. It was always worse in the oasis, where the sun seemed to beat upon her spine, where it reflected off the pale granules and the rugged terrain. The eventide was the only reprieve and even then temperatures were often higher than they should have been. Never the less, despite the sticky, sweaty, and intolerable heat, Allouette could still find time to appreciate the meteor shower overhead, just as she could find time to appreciate the sudden and unexpected encounter with her dearly beloved friend. Unfortunately for the demure girl, that unforseen counter was filled to the brim with confusion and riddle of creatures that no longer existed within her realms. His name meant nothing to her, except for the clear formality that made him distant even in mentioning. Of that, Allouette could agree on and eagerly her head bobbed to show her own thoughts on the matter. Like the blue girl, she is not able to put the pieces of this Grey sir and his lost ponies in their proper place till Koralynne makes a conclusion of her own. All at once the puzzle became strikingly clear though Allouette could offer little answer, "This place has not had others for some time. You could smell the emptiness when we arrived - they've likely found another home, perhaps one better than this?" It was the best she could offer; the notion that Sabine had moved to far greener pastures. Though really, with all this sandstone around - what pastures weren't greener?
Her thoughts had quickly turned from the state of the foliage to the joy resonating within Koralynne's voice and she was quick to return it was a genuine simper of her own. "It is! I do like it, very much. I used to live here once before so it's nice to be back." At this point Mael saw fit to join the congregation, his tawny wings fluttering to keep him floating in place. Even he seemed to be at ease for once and she couldn't help but to think that this might be the very vacation they required. It wasn't that Namaste was particularly difficult to look after but Allouette was constantly fretting over the girl and her sister. Never the less, she was glad to have the girl around much like she suspected that Koralynne was glad to have her own son around. She paused on this little bit of new information to reply to the female invitation with her own increasing sense of gaiety, "Oh that sounds fantastic! I will have to see if I can visit sometime." She would have to ask Helios first, naturally. While he was a nice fellow, he seemed to be the old fashioned type who wouldn't appreciate her sudden disappearance and her reappearance with masculine scents all over her. Mentally, Mael approved of her decision to approach him with her desires to visit elsewhere and she was glad to have even his acceptance on the matter.
Allouette's dark chocolate eyes drift skywards much like the female beside her to watch the remnants of the falling stars. Somewhere, in the back of her mind, she was aware that they had an adventure ahead of them. She knew she'd be leaving the Oasis tonight, even just for a little bit. All it took was Koralynne's reminder that they did indeed have a date with the caves to get her on board with their adventure. Her gaze drifted across the Oasis, her head tilting to the side as she considered the safety of her young charge. She'd be all right with Selene, even Mael thought so and that was enough for her. "What about now?" She inquired, her eyes seeking out her companion's. It was a pleasant enough night to venture into the cool caverns and Mael seemed to be itching to using his affinities since winter passed. "Mael will light the way for us." She commented confidently, her eyes shifting towards the small bird at her side. He chirped quite contently at her, with him there, darkness was the least of their concerns.
