    Following the stream (Ada/Tam) Sakura10
    "Following the stream"


    While wandering throughout the forest he had come to know quite well by now, Solmar had all of his senses on high alert at all times, even though his rather careless posture seemed to indicate otherwise. After being imbued with a foreign magic he still knew very little about, his sense of smell had been increased to the point where he could smell it whenever some unwashed beast would come skulking out of their den, looking for something to eat. At the same time, his hearing had been heightened to where he could now hear the creaking of twigs and leaves on the forest floor, or something moving in the trees above him. If nothing else, the strange magic had been a gift that kept on giving as it was perhaps the non-magical portions of it that had brought him the greatest benefits of all. After all, he was a traveler who did not venture into the human dwellings all that often, and for good reason.

    Having already been there quite recently to gather up some supplies that he could not get anywhere in the wilderness, he wouldn't need to return there for at least a week or so. With what he had in his duffle bag, he had everything he needed to catch fish in the stream, set up some traps for bigger game and to make his outdoor living a bit more luxurious. With some small bottles containing spices as simple as rock salt, black pepper, chives, coriander and red pepper, he had the means to make even the most bland of food such as deer taste good. Continuing to wander further into the forest, he listened to the birds as they sang their songs, he entered a portion of the forest that was so incredibly pink that it almost gave him a stroke. What with the trees themselves owning pink leaves and the forest floor beneath it being covered with them for the largest part, the only things standing out were the stalks of grass sticking out from under them and the stream passing by it.

    "Are we gonna catch some icky-slickeys?"

    When a high-pitched voice started coming from under Solmar's coat, he watched as something was rooting around in the sleeve of his oversized fur coat. Since the coat primarily acted as a blanket for him, it had become something his cat Fellis had started using as a mobile home, often using one of the sleeves to sleep in and storing his belongings inside of Solmar's pockets. When it had finished rooting around and made its way out, a white furry head came sticking out right next to Solmar's own. Crawling out and sitting down inside of the hood, Fellis had front-row seats to everything going on behind Solmar. So when it saw how lively the stream was with small fish, it had to bring it up.

    "Maybe later, the fish here don't seem big enough to even work out as proper bait. We might be able to find some larger ones up-stream though."

    "Ah. Well when we do, I'll be sure to catch one this time."

    Grinning a bit at the notion of Fellis actually catching a fish instead of just reaching for one, falling in and scaring quite literally every living thing within a few kilometer radius with his cowardly screams, the young man figured that he should at some point sit down in order to make the cat his own make-shift fishing rod from some leftover lines and a sturdy twig. While it seemed unlikely that he'd ever catch something worthwhile, it would at the very least keep the little guy out of the water, thus making his job of providing for the both of them a whole lot easier. With that thought in mind, the two kept trekking onward, following the stream and hoping to find a good spot where they could sit down and catch something decent.

    The Iron Dragon Slayer


    It had been a while since Ada had taken a break. After she had dealt with things for the company. She decided to take a vacation for a little bit, and let Tammy choose where they were going. The little purple exceed was dressed in on of the local clothings while Adalinda was waltzing around in a white tank top and black pants and some boots. The exceed had felt she needed to be fashionable regardless of where she was at. It was a wonder some days to the slayer how she and her cat could even work together with this exceed being a bubbly little thing, while Ada was the type to punch a tree down if she could. She had her black hair up in a high ponytail, and takes a deep breath as she walked with the flying cat. Tamaria had decided that she wanted to see some cherry blossom trees, and figured what better way to see some, than to go to Sakuramori? Ada didn’t quite care for the pink trees, they weren’t her style. That wasn’t including her lack of love for plants. She shuttered a bit as she runs her hands through her hair and shook her head. She could do without plants… especially if they were able to move about… There was probably none here, but Ada kept her wits about her as she didn’t want to have to deal with some coming out and surprising her. The two weren’t concerned about getting lost in the woods. If anything, Ada’s nose could get them out, and both of them could fly, but more Tammy on command than Ada could. Ada would probably destroy the forest on accident if she were the one to start the flying though.

    “Hey Ada! What do you think of the trees?!” The purple exceed exclaimed as she looked back over her shoulder to her slayer. Ada just snorts as she rolled her eyes. “You know full well what I think of them.” She tells the cat as she put her arms behind her head. With her wearing a tank top, her guild tattoo was visible for all to see on her right shoulder blade. Tammy had chuckled to Ada as she knew the high disdain for plants. The only plants she cared for, were the ones that made alcohol for her. Everything else was moot. “Look Ada! A river!” She calls out while skipping towards the river. Ada’s ice blue eyes followed the cat rather calmly as she was trying to figure out what the purpose of coming here was. “What would you want with a river? It’s just water. Don’t cats hate water?” Ada snickers as Tammy stopped her skipping and looked over her shoulder to the black haired girl. Tammy had turned to look at her, and put her paws on her hips. “Ada! Will you stop that? Nature is beautiful! Despite you being a sour puss and hating it. Just enjoy the fresh air for once! Relax!”

    The black haired mage takes a deep breath and stops her own walking. She looks to her exceed, before she just shakes her head and grabs a horned flask from her hip, taking a rather large swig of it. “Tammy, you know full well relaxing isn’t in my books. Even on vacation. It would be the death of me. I’d rather not risk it.” She caps the flask again, and put it back on her hip as Tammy takes a deep breath. Adalinda usually was like this. Always on edge, but she slightly understood, especially with Veles in her head too. She had gone through a lot in her life, but she also had overcome a lot too. Despite her hardships, she wished Ada would still could relax, if anything, at least a little bit. As they had walked, Ada stated to hear someone’s voice not too far from where she and Tammy were. “Careful… there’s someone up ahead…” She says, though it was more than just ‘up ahead’ as her senses were hiked up. Tammy freezes a bit after she hears her say that, and quickly lets her wings pop out and flies up above a bit. “It looks to be someone fishing. No danger.” Ada just grunted to the exceed, but she didn’t believe so. Looks could be deceiving.

    Moving through the forest and just following the stream, the sound of water gently rushing down from the frozen tops of the Phoenix mountains, passing through Sakuramori and heading out to the open ocean near the town of Cedar, he wondered why the forest had been so quiet lately. Normally, when he moved around on his own, most of the animals just went about doing their own thing, having recognized his scent as something that had more or less become part of the furniture around these parts, if one could accurately call it that. While this could mean a bunch of things, the fact that he had encountered another mage in these parts quite recently meant that there just might be more wandering about. After all, the forest was big, really big, though this particular stream was just about the only one that was wide enough to sustain life for fish, who could swim against the stream from the larger lakes up north or came in from the eastern waters. Some even made their way in from the ocean in order to lay their eggs and die in the waters nearby, making the place a feast for bears and other predators turned scavenger out of sheer laziness.

    When his ears picked up on voices in the distance, he signed at Fellis to get back into the hood of his coat, thus making sure the flying feline was tucked away safely within his reach. If anyone tried anything, at least he would be able to defend the both of them at the same time. For what it was worth, his senses were quite well developed, especially by human standards, allowing him to either sniff out or hear things most people would not pick up on until much later. That, and he could sense magic, even though he had not really managed to develop his magical senses… or magical skills all that much for that matter. Waiting at the stream as the footsteps got closer, he heard one set of footsteps stopping while the other got closer, though he also heard something else that came closer to… soaring. Knowing the sound all too well as Fellis managed to make it all the time when he was floating about, he wondered what kind of flying creature was accompanying this person. As time progressed ever so slowly, a woman seemingly around his own age entered into his line of sight, accompanied by what could only be another Exceed such as Fellis.

    "Fellis, you might want to take a look at this."

    As soon as he uttered these words, the white furred feline looked out of the hood hanging loosely from Solmar's back, peeking over his shoulder in order to get a good look at what Solmar was refering to. Narrowing his eyes, it locked in on the other exceed as if trying to figure out whether he had seen this one before or not. While it did so, Solmar turned his attention to the woman who was being accompanied by the other feline, sensing that she was at the very least a powerful mage in her own right. While his senses were probably not that sharp when it came to the sensing of magical sources, especially when their origin was other people, he could tell by the way she carried herself that she was not afraid of roaming these woods. Knowing full well what one might encounter in this place as he had been out discovering just about every single nook and cranny in the place, that meant that the woman was more than capable of taking care of herself and her flying companion.

    "You, you smell different from most of the people who wander through here. There's a sense of familiarity about it, though it feels entirely foreign at the same time.. Might I ask who you are, and what you're here for?"

    "I'm not sure who these people are big bro, I don't recognize 'em."

    Listening as Fellis spoke softly to him, it at least settled the matter at hand by proving that these exceed had never seen one another before, just like how Solmar had never seen this woman before either.

    The Iron Dragon Slayer


    The black haired slayer started to walk cautiously in the direction of the person. There was no telling what crazy would be out here. It wasn’t too terribly long till she was able to actually tell that there was a guy up ahead. “Stay close Tammy…” She says in a stern voice before she put her hands behind her head and grabbed the back of her neck, pulling her elbows past her face as she walked on. She heard the man up ahead talk to someone, and then noticed the little white exceed poking their head out. Tammy squealed excitedly as she noticed them, being up a bit further than Adalinda still as she didn’t want to listen to her slayer too much. “Another Exceeeeeeeed~!” The purple one shrieked out in an all too happy tone of voice.

    Ada keeps a calm expression on her face as she walks on a bit. When she got close enough, he seemed to address her a bit. A smirk came across her lips as she shrugged her shoulders to him. “Slayers tend to have a slightly similar scent to them, but they’re still distinct in their own right.” She was copying Veles’ words, passing it off as her being smarter than she really was. Ada walked right up to the man, standing her whole five foot, five inch height, she looked up to him and snickered. “Have you not met another slayer before? Dragon? Demon? God?” She chuckles and holds her fist out to him for a fist bump. She was prepared though, for this guy to attack her for her going right up to him. Like she told Tamaria before, she was always on guard. Her ice blue eyes were steady as she looked at the man.

    Regardless if he returned her fistbump or not, Ada lowered her arm a moment later, and put her hand on her hip. “I’m Adalinda Ortinbras. A Vice President over at the West Fiore Trading Company. The squealing purple exceed is Tamaria, my copartner I suppose you can say some days. I’m just traveling for a little vacation, and this is where the brat cat chose. What about you two? Who are you guys? And what brings you here?” She had pointed over her right shoulder to where her guild tattoo was, and slightly turned her arm for him to peek at the symbol when she mentioned her guild. When she mentioned Tammy, she pointed over to her. She crossed her arms over her chest as she stands there.

    ‘You talk too much.’ Veles complains to his host as she stands there. She ignores him though as she looks over to the purple exceed landing and seeming to be bouncing up and down on the ground next to her. “How many exceeds have I met by now, Ada?!” Tammy questions as she snorts and shrugs her shoulders. “Hell if I know! Fourth? Sixth?” She shrugged her shoulders as she shook her head. She didn’t keep track of how many friends the cat made. It wasn’t her job to do so. Hell… she didn’t know how many friends she really had, or people who considered her a friend either, not including her husband. Ada shakes her head at that thought, and snorts to herself as she looks around. She was sick and tired of these plants. They were the bane of her existence by this point. And standing here in this forest… frankly wasn’t helping her case.

    The way this woman made it sound, those possessing slayer types of magic possessed a scent that deviated from that of the average mage, which wasn't something he had ever really heard of before. He had also not been all that aware of how people went about naming things like magics and spells, for if he had been spoken to about "slayers" a week or two earlier, he wouldn't have had a single clue as to what the woman had been talking about. Now though, he was at the very least aware of the fact that the magic he had been granted when he absorbed the essence of a dead god was called "Demon Slaying Magic" of the fire element. Wondering if that made him smell different from the other people who possessed a type of slayer magic, he felt it odd that this woman knew so much about the subject. But it wasn't until she brought up whether or not he had ever met other slayers before, also bringing up different types of slayers such as Dragon and God slayers. Truth be told, he had no idea what a dragon was, though he knew that his powers had been given to him by a half god's remnants.

    "Uhm.. no.. I don't think I have. I don't meet a whole lot of people out here, and those that do come out here are often not here to talk."

    That much true, though it might have sounded worse than intended. Most of the people he encountered were hunters, poachers, loggers and in some cases bandits, though he did not care a whole lot for any of them. Most of them left him alone as they did not venture far enough into the woodlands to actually get to where he was, though he had encountered a few bandits that had made their way over to his den as they believed it might have been a good place to stash some stolen money. That had been a good day for him as they had funded quite a few supply runs for him with the money he had taken off of them. Looking on as the two cats were getting better acquainted, he watched as the woman extended her fist at him. For a moment, he wondered if maybe she was challenging him to something, but when she started introducing herself to him Adalinda Ortinbras, followed by a whole mass of words he did not understand the meaning of, he'd attempt to grab hold of her fist and shake it awkwardly.

    "I don't know what most of those things mean, but my name's Solmar, that's Fellis, and we live… well, here. We've been living out here for quite some time now, at least a few years since Fellis likes it here and there is plenty of wild game around. We fought a bear that owned a den further back along the stream and won, so it's ours now."

    "I'm Fellis!"

    Once he let go of her hand and looked back at the bear den that was a decent walk away from where they were standing now. With the cat screaming for attention, Solmar reached into his pocket and tossed it a piece of jerky for it to nibble on. Thinking about some of the words Adalinda had spoken of as if it were a really big deal, it made him wonder what all of it meant. He knew that Fiore was the land that they found themselves in, as well as it being the western portion of it, though he had no idea vice or a president was, or what an exceed was, even though she pointed at her cat when she used that word. Usually refering to his own cat as either a cat or a flying feline, he figured that Fellis must've been an exceed too if he was to believe what the woman said. More importantly, something he had more or less forgotten to ask about was whether she was also some kind of slayer just like him. Feeling like he had missed his opportunity to do so when they more or less continued with their conversation and went straight towards the introductions, he figured that he could try asking about it later, or just leave it for what it was as it wasn't really that big of a deal anyway.
