Clover Town in Fiore, a far cry from where Rai had spent the past few days, although equally as frustrating and probably filled with more humans than he could possibly fry. It had been a long trek from the deserts of Fiore near where the guild 'Sabertooth' made their home, but it was a necessary one. Somewhat. truth be told Rai actually hadn't any idea where he was going. All he knew was that the girl he'd tried to stay near was gone and that the prophecy - whatever that prophecy had been - had changed. How in the hell does a prophecy change anyway? Aren't those sorts of things supposed to be set in stone? Whatever the case, Alya had scolded Rai in his dreams and told him to keep travelling East, and that 'fate' would take him where he needed to be. Truth be told he was getting a bit tired of this whole 'fate' thing. Oh what he wouldn't do to be back in his village right now.
The thunder mouse came to a halt and then shuddered. No. Going back home was not an option. He was a pariah there now, about as welcome as a pack of rabid humans looking to capture a new creature to fight for them. He released a sigh and shook his fur in an attempt to get the rain off of him, which lasted all of a second as the downpour continued and doused him further. Another sigh before he looked around. The streets were fairly quiet thanks to the ensuing monsoon, but sounds of laughter, idle chatter and various items moving about could be heard clearly even through the not-so-gentle pitter-patter of the rain crashing against the ground around him.
As much as he hated these 'humans' he couldn't help but feel a sense of envy. They were warm, dry, surrounded by others they loved and, most importantly, happy. And here he was, stood in the middle of a deserted street, soaked to the bone without so much as an ant to keep him company. One final sigh which turned into a shiver which threatened to overcome his resolve to keep going, Rai took a slow step forward, hindered by the cold that had overcome his bones while he was idle - a rookie error for a traveler. Nonetheless he continued down this lonely road, shivering all the while but never once looking behind him or through the windows of the buildings nearby, his eyes focussed on the path ahead blinded by both rain and uncertainty at exactly what was ahead of him.
