Being the aspect of life was something Deus was sure he would never get use too, feeling every plant and being that was alive. How could one get use to that? It had its ups and downs. There were days he had to set his staff aside to cut the tie but each time he did it comes with a down side. Picking the staff back up meant he was hit with feeling of all living beings once again. Leading him to stop putting it aside more and more. He just chose to cast magic on it making it into a necklace that would hang around his neck. It was the easiest way to keep it close without flashing it around.
Since siblings had spent the last few years settling in to Evermore they had all seem to find their own hobbies; Cora stalked a Celestial name Rashesh she thought she was keeping hidden, Argent volunteered at a hospital and there was Deus. Deus actually had many interests in life yet being in his garden lately was beginning to cause tension for the aspect. There was a strange darkness in the air lately, which made the aspect uneasy though he couldn’t place his feelings on it.
So one day he found himself wandering the city in looks for something to keep his overthinking brain at bay when he found himself pausing outside of a veterinary clinic. He touched his hands in his pockets as he wondered in looking at the beautiful animals who where there for one thing or another. It was when he stood in front of a large great dane that was whimpering next to his owner did it dawn on him that humans couldn’t get answers right away from the source of what was wrong. Deus had a huge fear in that moment as his eyes darted around the room.
He couldn’t let the Great Dane die in front of him. He moved to the vet that was calling in the next patient explain that the Great Dane had eaten a rather poisonous berries and need to be seen right away. The vet gave Deus a strange look as if asking how he knew that and with a sigh he explained that he was an Animal whisperer. It was something he saw on TV once when he was killing time. The vet told him she didn’t believe in that kind of thing but after a little more convincing she took the great dane back and looked at him. The vet ran out expressing how sorry she was for doubting him and offered him a job in the building.
Deus was reluctant to accept yet his siblings had found a life outside of being Aspects so maybe he should too. So he agreed to take the job mainly because he hated seeing the Animals suffering with no voice. He became their voice. That night had been like any other, yet there was a swift shift in the air that caused the Aspect to pause as he reached to lock the door for the evening. That was when a woman appeared in the doorway covered in blood. A mound of towels in her arms. He pulled open the door and looked over the visible shaken woman. “Are you okay?” his voice had a soothing effect over most mortals.
“She came out of nowhere.” the woman sobbed out as she looked to the towels. “I didn’t have time to get out of the way.”
“Its okay.” Deus said as he took the mound in his own arms and moved to the floor with it. He slowly pulled back the towel on top that was covering what he thought was a dog until he finally saw the wolf in full view. Not just a wolf though, A lycan. It was the full moon that night but the therians tended to stick to the woods. “Ma’am this is a wolf a wild animal. I will patch her up and get it to safety. Don’t worry about her. She is in the best hands.” He gave her a smile and after a little more convincing he manage to get her to leave. Locking the door, he looked back to the therian. “Alright little pup lets get you fixed up so when you wake, you are not in too much pain.”
He moved back over picking her up off the ground and moving towards the exam room and placed her on the table. Resetting her bones before he sighed, placing his hand on her and began to heal her feeling his own bones breaking in her place. Taking on the wounds as his own he stumbled back into the chair. Leaning his head back panting out as his body worked to heal him. He knew better than to heal so much at once but Deus couldn’t watch the wolf in pain. He closed his eyes letting out a grounding breath before forcing himself to his feet. Now all that was left to wait. He got a rag and worked on trying to clean the blood out of her fur. She looked like she stayed in her wolf for, longer then the full moon time. He let out a slight hum as he was deep in thought.
It bamboozled her frequently how quickly the next full moon came round, it felt like it came round within a blink of an eye; and it was very well known to those that are close to her, how much it scared her at times when she shifted into her wolf form. However, what wasn’t known, was why she was afraid of the shift - people were often confused because she did love the feeling of becoming the four legged creature; there truly is no better feeling than being able to run through the forest, to be able to sniff out different scents which lingered in the air but more importantly, the feeling of empowerment that the wolf gave her. Yet, where there were upsides, there were certainly downsides to this - in the decade before she found herself in Evermore city, she spent her banishment in the woodlands, alone; thus, to keep her own humane demons at bay, she often found herself shifting into her wolf form. These shifts could last anywhere from an hour or two, to a day, to a month and at times, even a year or so; yet because of these often changes, her wolf became stronger and it became apparent that shifting back to human became to her as a difficulty. Therefore, after the last shift where she was unable to change back, this upcoming Full Moon in particular was stirring up her anxieties.
As per, Riley said her goodbyes to Kaelyn a few hours before the sun began to set and made her way to her abandoned cabin which was her sanctuary throughout her banishment; things had remained the same, and most people if they looked at the cabin itself, would not want to touch it with a stick - she could even remember Kaelyn’s utmost disgust at the place. Time seemed to pass by extremely quickly and Riley soon found herself sitting outside beneath a cloudless sky, peering upward at the twinkling stars and the proud moon; she often found comfort that there were other wolves that were going through the same, maybe even worse situation as herself. Eventually, her bones began to crack and pain soared through her body as it morphed to make room for the wolf; each shift was getting slightly easier, but she often thanked her lucky stars that she had a high pain threshold. The moment Riley had completed her shift, she quickly threw her head backward and howled at the empowering moon.
The night truly seemed like any other full moon evening, where she found herself exploring the woodland, hunting her favourite prey and frollicking in the water beds which were hidden within the trees; however, this time round she found herself feeling valiant and therefore, began wandering towards civilisation - yet the moment her paws hit the concrete of the road, she soon found herself regretting this very brave but idiotic move. Before she truly had time to process the lights before her, she was soon welcomed with an overwhelming sensation of pain and darkness welcomed her like an old friend. Riley despite wanting to resist the darkness, could not help herself and began to get comfortable in its presence and accompanying pain. Time had passed, which made her more reluctant to accept the light which tried to entice her forwards, yet the very weak human voice within her begged and persuaded the wolf to go towards it and come to terms with the pain in which she felt; saying that, she knew the pain and simmered some, the reason for that, she was unsure.
Eventually, as the light soon began to filter through her wide white eyes, she let out a whine and huff; her chest rising and falling almost dramatically. The grey wolf slowly began to try and get up, just winced as her bones still had not set properly for her to run off once she clocked on she was inside a building and not in her sanctuary of the woodland. Panic set in, and as she looked around, she soon came across a man sat rather contently, albeit wearily on the chair across the room which automatically made her show her canines, a low growl rumbling within the depths of her chest.
Deus rested there for a while his eyes half closed as he tried to stay awake while his body was healing from taking on the worst of her injuries. The only downside for Virindeus is the fact he couldn’t heal someone completely, without doing long term damage to himself. He shifted on the chair looking to the time when he felt the panic coming from the wolf. His gaze moved over towards her as she tried to get up snarling at her. He took in her canines and the low growl that was coming from her. Deus stood up letting his eyes turn green as a way to tell her I am not human.
“Calm down child.” his lips moved to letting his brain connect with hers as a way to see what she was thinking. “You were hit by a car, I took on most of your injuries but your brakes are still trying to finish healing.” He held his hands up so she could see them as he moved closer to her. He was sure she could smell he wasn’t like anything she had smelled before. “My name is Virindeus Ailward, I am from a group of people that are meant to keep everyone safe. I am the aspect of Life.” He introduced herself.
He reached his hand out waiting for her to bite it, knowing it would hurt like a bitch if she did. Unlike many of the aspects he was human before accepting his place among the Ailward Aspects, so he didn’t have a tragic tale of turning into another species. “I need you to lay still for a little while longer then I will take you to the woods and stay with you till you shift back and try and make sure in your human form nothing has healed incorrectly.” He said as his eyes still where glowing green. “Please let me help you.”
The wolf didn’t like this one bit, it felt weird but more importantly, it felt unnatural to be inside a confined room in this form; she felt trapped and caged in which only sent her on high alert and ready to attack anyone that tried to reach her. Thus, when she saw the man sitting silently across the room, her immediate thought that he was a hunter, perhaps one of the hunters her Brother had hired; and he was going to have his wicked way with her - possibly use her as some weird experiment. Her white gaze roamed across the room which confirmed her latter thought - there were too many medical instruments for her liking; the clumsy wolf attempted to stand but wobbled on the table she was set upon, which ultimately pushed some tools off and onto the ground which certainly woke the man up in front of her. Shit. She hissed, naturally going into defence mode to prevent any form of attack on her, her lips pulled back and a snarl escaped her; so much so salvia began to drip slowly from her mouth.
Upon seeing his eyes flash green the way they did, she backed up a little; at least as much as she could before she too would fall off the table; of course, she was so distracted from the vibrant emeralds which sat within his eye sockets, the snarl soon simmered down, but nevertheless, she remained on high alert as he spoke to her. Her head tilted as he spoke, being in wolf form and having a human speak to her was something she had yet to get used to; it wasn’t until recently she really had to learn it and even then it was a rare occasion for anyone to see her wolf. Naturally, she lifted her head and let her nostrils twitch as they took in the many scents in the room when it was clear that he was no immediate threat to her just yet; there were so many, so many scents in the room, all very familiar - but his? What the fuck was he?
Riley stood back up right as she got confident on the table, albeit weakly and glanced behind him at the closed door and huffed to herself; she was weak, she could feel it and running into the door to take it down didn’t seem to be the most practical move. Upon sensing his hand reaching out to her, her ears fell backward and her jaw snapped at him but being more human, she intended to miss; she was not the wolf she was where she would hurt for the sake of it. She watched him pull his hand back sharply, before she dropped back down onto the table and huffed; the sun would rise soon - and she needed to be back in the woods before that happened.
Panic was at an all time high in the room, she was scared and he could tell in her jumbled thoughts. He tried his best to calm her down without using his powers on her. Even though his staff was shaped into a ring that wrapped around his hand having him connect with it. Yet he tried not to use his ability to make living things obey to him unless it was a last stitch effort. He reached out to the young would to run a gentle hand over her and yanket it back as she snapped at him. He huffed out slightly and looked to her. That was when he gave up talking in his voice and used his power to talk in wolf in her head. ‘Listen, I know you are scared but all I want to do is help. If you let me help you, I will show you who I am.’ his eyes hung emerald green on her before looking to the door once more knowing the sun was going to rise in just a few hours. If she wasn’t back in the woods he wasn’t sure what he could be dealing with.
“I hope you can forgive me for this.” He said and then used his ability to make any living creatures obey him upon her. “You will let me pick you up you in my car and back to the woods.” He waited for her to fall in a trance like state then he checked her wrappings once more to make sure she was in the final stages of healing before he picked her up in his large arms cradling her with all the care in the world as he exited the building. Locking the door and then moved to his jeep. He opened to a small bed of it placing her in the uncovered back truck before closing the tailgate and moving around climbing in and began to drive. Not towards the Ailward Manor and he was sure that Iris would be nagging him when he returned. Reaching down he made sure his phone was off so not to be bugged with her calls. Looking in the rearview mirror to look to the wolf every few seconds.
He pulled down a path that led to the Therian woods and once deep enough he parked the keep off the side of the road and walked around picking up her out of the bed and moved deeper into the woods picking up a spare shirt of his that rested in his back seats. Once he was sure he was deep enough the animals confirming there was no humans around or anything else. He lowered her to the ground and moved back slightly. He kept his eyes locked on her until he felt the warmth of the sun on his face. He moved closer to check her wrapping confirming that she healed nicely before undoing them and let her mind go. Standing up and turning his back so when she turned back into her human form he didn’t see her naked.
The distant voice in her head was not one that she was familiar with, of course, she was never used to anyone in her head besides herself; the one and only time someone else was in there was Orion, when they were both stuck in their animal form without any means of returning to their human bodies. She recalled that time and how strange it felt to have another speaking inside her; and as this other male was doing the same, a growl rumbled albeit quickly within her ribcage - it simply reminded her of how she was not a fan of this power and possibly would be the only reason why she would refuse to join a pack. However, she did not try and fight the male in her head - not because she didn’t want to, but because she simply did not have the strength to take him down; plus, she had no idea as to who or what he was - even Riley wasn’t that foolish.
An ear twitched in confusion at his words and before she could register her next moves, it felt as if her body was refusing her orders but following his own; it started at her muscles which began to fall asleep upon her, they grew tired and eventually, the sensation worked its way up her body. Riley’s white eyes glanced up at him, and the last thing she saw was how his green hue’s grew in vibrancy as he moved towards her; but the darkness was ever so welcoming and she perhaps was grateful for the rest as it was no lie that she could still feel the pain from whatever accident or mess that she found herself in. Light snores escaped her as he carried her from the table and into the back of his truck; she could just about feel the movement of the car, but in all honesty, it was rather relaxing and even when in human form - car journeys always made her sleepy.
The warmth of the sun began to wash over her lycan form and the heat stirred her from her peaceful slumber, and soon enough it triggered the wolf to go back into hiding, and to let her human form out. Riley squeezed her eyes shut for a moment, the sun was just too bright to let in all at once and soon enough she rolled over and sat up right. “Oww” She groaned and allowed her fingers to run through her wild locks before she took in her surroundings - only to find a male standing before her. At first, she was ready to attack but if he was a threat, he would be watching her naked self, rather than saving her dignity; she found the spare shirt beside her and shrugged into it. “I assume this shirt is yours?" Riley queried as she stood, the shirt being more of a dress on her. Her jaw clenched for a moment, glancing down at the many bruises which painted her legs. “I take it, I didn’t just run into trees last night, fuck sake” She mumbled to herself.
Virindeus felt like he was going to have his arm ripped off the moment he realised his Ailward hold over the injured wolf but lucky for him, she seemed to fall into a deep sleep like state after the ride. The Aspect spent his time staring at the moon as it lowered behind the treeline and when the sun came into view and he had his back to her as he waited for her to wake up. As he looked up to the way the trees sway and how they whispered to him. Telling him he did the right thing. “Let's hope so.” he replied softly to the old tree and then heard the ruffles of the grass beneath Riley shifting body. His eyes staying locked on the tree as he waited until knowing she for sure was dressed.
The aspect turned around slowly with a quick glance in her direction confirming that she had put on the shirt. “Yes it is one of mine.” he said as he crossed his arms behind his back and looked to her with his dark eyes for a long moment. “You were brought into the vet clinic I work at, a woman ran you over with her car. She wanted to get you into the safety of someone who could care for you while she assumed you would die. I healed you the best I could without killing myself and then bandaged you up. While using my powers to calm you enough to get you back into the woods for sunrise.” Deus eyes dropped to the bruises on her legs and frowned softly. “You should heal rather quickly.” He said softly while letting his gaze flick back towards her wild hair, for some reason he found it suiting her nicely.
“My name is Virindeus Ailward, I am the aspect of life.” He wouldn’t tell people normally but he felt that if he didn’t tell her she would freak out him. “I am tasked with the abilities to speak with all living things and help them survive injuries.” He said as he looked to the ground having a flower grow up and tickle her nose before falling back to the ground. “I like you can shift into another being, though it is not a wolf nor anything therian like.” He said as he looked her over for a moment, she looked thin to thin. He cleared his throat for a moment and then brought his arms in front of him as he mused for a moment. “It was a long night and your body had to eat what food you had before your shift, let me treat you to something and keep an eye on you for the next twelve hours. Just to make sure you don’t fall over and die on me.” He said in a serious tone.
Upon hearing that shirt belonged to the man before her, she brought the collar up to her nose and gave it a quick sniff; which consequently made her nose twitch. “You smell weird. Has this even been washed?” She teased, it truly didn’t smell bad, but it definitely had an odour which she was not accustomed to; although, saying that, she also liked wearing a bigger shirt than what her body was used to - much to Kaelyn’s dismay. Riley always enjoyed the more boyish look, and was only ever seen in heels that resembled that of a boot rather than the stilettos that she sees women wearing on nights out; which baffled her frequently, surely it hurt the feet. Riley took a slight step forward, a few tiny twigs snapping beneath her bare feet as she listened to what had actually happened to her and why she had found herself in this rather strange and unusual setting; in the last decade, she had never let anyone see her shift, even her own girlfriend so the fact he was there made her slightly uncomfortable.
“Those damn things on wheels, I always knew they were up to no good” Riley mumbled under her breath and clicked her fingers together in a ‘darn it’ like motion; she never truly saw the benefit of them, despite Kaelyn always suggesting she should learn to drive so they could travel the world together in a camper van. “Well, thank you? I guess?” She quirked a brow; not really sure how to act around such kindness, it was a virtue she had not seen in many people in her life. “Do I get a thank you card now or a box of chocolates?” Her expression was truly dumbfounded, but from the look of the man she could tell he was gentle now that her wolf had simmered down, and likely suspected he would not ask for anything in return. “I should, I mean, clumsiness and getting hurt run in my very blood, these bruises and aching pains will go in no time” She reassured him, noting the continuous concerned expression.
“Oooh… So you’re one of those royal people that live in the fancy castle?” Riley queried, truth be told, she had not heard much about them; if anything at all. Kae and herself attempted not to bring back any work or faction talk to the house, so she only really heard of the aspects in passing; or if mentioned with all the chaos which was happening in the city. As the flower grew upward, her eyes went cross eyed before sneezing some as the flower returned to the ground. “Good, because I am star---ving, plus I for sure have some questions about that shit you just pulled there with that dandelion” Riley grinned and attempted to prance towards, and past him to head in the direction of his car but limped instead, muttering slight ‘ows’ silently.
Virindeus watched as Riley sniffed the collar of the shirt that was his that she had placed on. Deus gave a gentle chuckle and a roll of his eyes. “Well it was washed but that has been in my jeep for a while now.” he admitted as he crossed his arms staying rather still as if not to scare the girl off from him or to make her any more uncomfortable he was sure she was. He knew shifting was an intimate experience but also couldn’t in good conscience leave a wounded woman in the woods. She looked so tiny in his shirt it caused the aspect of life to fear she wasn’t eating enough. The aspect had his feelings about cars himself so he understood her frustration. “The days we traveled by foot and horses were far better.” he spoke softly.
“No need to thank me, I am just glad you were brought to me and not some vet who doesn’t know about the supernatural world.” Virindeus let out a cheerful laugh at her next question and then shook his head “No, you don’t need to provide a thank you card or chocolates. Just heal and get stronger that is all I ask for you to do.” being the aspect of life that is all he could want is for her to be strong and live a long happy life. As she said she should be okay he looked her over for a moment to eyeing the healing bruises. “Well it makes since as you are a wolf not a giant cat so you would be more clumsy then your therian counterparts” he teased softly trying to be as open and easy going.
“Well I don’t consider us royal.” he muttered out as he thought about it for a long moment. “But yes we live in the overly fancy manor.” he groaned softly knowing they needed the space but he also hated being looked at as someone so wealthy. He moved closer to her with a soft chuckle as he held his arm out to her in an effort to help her make it to the car without hurting herself over again pushing herself. “Well what would you like to eat? We could go into a dinner or something.” he looked her over again for a moment. “I may have some shoes in the jeep from one of my sisters as they are forever leaving stuff in there.” he said as they moved towards the jeep and he opened the passenger side door for her.
Riley chuckled ever so slightly at how the male before her got slightly defensive over her comment of how weird his shirt smelt, and if truth be told; she wished to continue to make him feel slightly uneasy, yet that was truly just the playful side of her, and there was no malice in her actions at all. “It doesn’t smell of damp, you Dumb Dumb” She shook her head, her lips curling in amusement, yet she decided to leave her comment at that, Riley wanted him to overthink what she could possibly have meant over that; although, she was sure it wouldn’t take him long, after all, she assumed it was common knowledge that the fancy people smelt differently to the normal folk - let alone those like herself who had spent the last decade living in the wilderness. Her eyes shifted for a moment as she felt his own gaze run over her in concern, of course, it was no lie that she was slightly ill looking compared to others in the city; she had lived on the bare minimum for years, and even now if a large plate of food was put in front of her, it would simply put her off. “Jeeze, how old are you Grandpa?”
The teasing comment made a proud smile appear on her lips and she tucked a strand of wild hair behind her ear as she found herself relieved that she did not owe him anything in return for saving her life; although she was sure that Kaelyn would send something of sorts to equal out the playing field. “You ask too much” She commented, her hands smoothing down the sides of the oversized t-shirt. “Although if getting stronger requires me to eat a shit ton of chocolate, or pancakes, then I’m there” Without knowing it, she wiped her lips with the back of her hand, in case the slightest bit of drool appeared at the simple thought of junk food which could aid her in recovery. Riley eyed the man as he began to playfully tease her right back and she shook her head with a laugh. “You can call me Moon Moon, you know… After that famous wolf thing that people are obsessed over on the internet?...” She paused briefly. “You do know what that is right?”
Her previous comment was rich coming from her, she had no idea how to truly work the internet; she couldn’t read or write, but her mind had grasped that it was a wonderful intervention for those who were more skilled than she. “You are royal, you have guards, who else has those?” She got sassy with him for a moment before reluctantly accepting his arm to help her balance as they walked towards the car. “As long as they have milkshakes, and the most sickly sounding breakfasts going, I’m there” She grinned widely up to the other male as she slipped into the jeep; she leant forwards to dust off the dirt which stuck to the bottom of her feet. “Shoes may be needed, they would think you’d have kidnapped me otherwise” She winked at the male before moving to sit cross legged in the chair; she had a natural way of making herself at home even when in the company of a stranger.
Virindeus looked her over and raised a brow and then he wondered deep in his mind if an aspect smelled different from other species. “Can’t think of a better insult than Dumb Dumb, road kill?” He smirked back at her in amusement. As she asked how old he was as he was looking over her in concern he only smiled. “Much older then I am sure you would guess right away. When it comes to the world we live in we know that age sometimes is just a number of how many years you can gain while frozen.” He simply shrugged “Though grandpa is a much better attempt at an insult. If I had children though it wouldn’t really be one now would it be?” He then hummed soflty “You about in your 20’s?” He asked her trying to figure her out for a moment, she wasn’t like a normal Lycan.
“So I have been told.” He replied that he asked too much. He gave a soft chuckle. “Then you should have chocolate chip pancakes a whole new game there.” He said watching as she was salivating at the thought of food. “Moon Moon it is then. Though I could just call you your name also. “Feel free to call me Deus or Jett is what I go by most of the time at work because my first name is a mouth full.” he then rolled his eyes. “Yes I know what the internet is. I was around when the damn thing took over the world.” He said as he shook his head. “Not all grandpas are bad with the internet. I just happen to prefer the outdoors and plant life then I do spending all day messing with computers.” He pulled at his shirt in a manner to tell himself to relax.
“People who need protection have guards, not all are royal.” He said as he looked over her for a moment. “I think I am gonna call you Sassy Moon instead of Moon Moon.” He chuckled as they got into the Jeep that was parked there. No real doors or roof on it since he often used it to explore. “You can order whatever you want.” He said as he looked in the backseat and sighed for a moment. “Only thing I got is a pair of one of my sisters heels. She must have left in here from the last hike trip.” He said pulling out a pair of sparkly black heels and handed them to him. “If they even fit that is.” he said and then put the Jeep in drive and began to head to a dinner on the edge of town that he saw on his way to the woods. He didn’t mind her getting comfy as it mean maybe she would open up to him some more. Once they reached the diner he came to a stop and got out of it and moved around to her sides. “Think you are gonna need help walking in those things?” he asked as he looked back to the diner.
A wide grin found her lips at how the insult of Dumb Dumb didn’t phase him whatsoever. “It’s not really meant to offend you, I think it’s quite endearing” Riley informed him with a nod; she used it quite a lot, to children, to adults and even to herself. Moreso to herself if she really gave it much thought because she could be incredibly dumb when it came to life in this world - yet, if she was out in the wild, dumb she was not. Clumsy, yes, but that would not stop her from being wilderness wise; yet she believed if she got Kaelyn camping, she would struggle and because of that thought - she knew it had to happen soon. Riley widened her eyes when she considered how old he could possibly be. “Hm, well. It could be worse, you could be nothing but dirt and dust now” She nodded. “So you’re however old, and you don’t have children, I’m not judging though” Riley held her hands out in defense. “No woman tickled your fancy for those things?” A cheeky grin found her lips before she hummed. “Twenty four, maybe? I think. I kinda lost track, won’t lie”
Riley bit her lip at the idea of demolishing a chocolate chip pancakes; she had to say, this life certainly did have it’s benefits - she would never have got this in the forest, nor would her family have made this sort of thing if she had remained with them. Maybe this was heaven, or maybe it was a form of hell that would get her addicted to all the sweet things. “Jett? Why Jett? That doesn’t sound anything like Deus” A curious brow rose upward as she tried to figure out how the two names correlated to one another; her name was pretty standard so there were not many nicknames out there for her - unless it had nothing to do with her name but her behaviour. “Maybe call me Pancake seeing as I’m going to turn into one with the amount I’m gunna eat” She smirked. A laugh echoed from her lungs as she pictured the world going crazy when the internet was introduced. “I can imagine the world had my reaction to the internet, but on a far greater scale. Moon Moons everywhere throwing things across the room” Her arm extended and brushed the air as if she was setting the scene. She leaned over slightly and nudged his shoulder. “Great, it means no square eyes for you!”
“Not all people, not all people have the money” Riley huffed as she counteracted his comment; she liked him already, and little did he know that he would now be stuck with her, whether he liked it or not. Riley brushed her hair backwards as the wind continued to throw it across her face; a series of ‘offt’ sounds left her each time. Yet it eased off as she glanced over her shoulder at the heels which were offered. “Yikes. I’m healing and you want me to go break another ankle?” She rose both brows his way before shrugging and reaching over for them; she slipped her feet into the very uncomfortable shoes and they were only slightly too big for her - she could perhaps fit a finger or two between her heel and the shoe. Once they came to a stop, and Deus appeared at her side again, she reached a hand out to rest on his shoulder to aid her to the ground where she wobbled with the new found height. “And your sister likes wearing these?” It was a rhetorical question but she did pull an awkward face at his own. “Mm, possibly” She reluctantly admitted.
