a bit of poison, a bit of powder
She had told Starfall in no uncertain terms that she was leaving for a day or so to do some business for Zelda. It was both true and untrue. Zelda was curious about what was going on in the outside world, what with the change in Iromar and Asteraia. Arace had been cooped up for too long in Taviora while she healed and then birthed pups. One of which was the devil incarnate with a foul temper to boot. Small scabs on the back of Arace's ankles were proof enough of that, an addition to the scars on her front two paws. The need to go out and find a contract of sorts haunted her. Not to mention the need to hunt down the wolfess who owed her a bit for her last job which had ended her up like this.
But she wouldn't. She actually would see what information she could find, test out the waters of Molodian once more, and then go from there. The need to kill Tithe had subsided a bit though she studiously ignored him in Taviora.
As she traveled southward she could have sworn she came across a few familiar scents. The distinct scent of male near the crags reminded her of a male assassin who had trained with her group yet she had abandoned her hunt for him as another trace of a familiar past called her. A female - their task master of sorts. Maybe she was going insane. She certainly felt that way with the constant soreness to her belly from lactating and her heathen child. Stardust was beautiful and listened well, as well as Polaris, but Aurora... she was something else entirely.
Either way, she had needed a break from them and Starfall's watching eyes. Out here she could do what she wanted and right now she wanted to find someone to either learn some information from, or let out this pent up energy.
