NATE

Back again. Not only in the Grounds, but in the Labyrinth. Joy. If it wasn't for a certain someone's stupid decision to throw a sword at a monster, Nate wouldn't even be here, but as it is, he needs to find something borrowed. If Flametongue had been his, he'd simply take the loss and forget about it, let the thing rust and crumble away into dust.

It's not though, so here he is.

It had been dusk when he'd first ventured out, wandering along the paths and ignoring the squirrels that tried to call him this way and that. Pemota drifts low to the ground before him, her eyes poor but her light supremely helpful in finding things that glint and glitter.

The moon is high in the sky when he rounds a bend and finds himself back at the mouth of the labyrinth, a realization that takes a moment to really sink in, ugly rage welling up in his chest. A string of curses so dark they should stain his tongue leave him, and he kicks childishly at the nearest hedge, intent on leaving some damage to it. Maybe that's the real strategy, leaving behind enough damage that he'll know when he loops.

It’s Loki who alerts her to Pemota (though at first, Wessex thinks she means Jyoti and mixed feelings abound), and the two of them wander towards the Labryinth. The dragon flies ahead, announcing the pair with an energetic trill while her bonded continues on foot. It doesn’t take them long to make it to the entrance. There, Wessex spots a disturbance in the hedges and begins to follow that, unaware of the ragefest she’s walking into.

Nate? she calls to her brother, pausing in her tracking to stop and listen for anything other than the chittering of talking squirrels and the brush of their tiny, clawed feet against the densely packed shrubbery.

The absolute last thing he expects (or wants) is company, but he’s never lucky is he? Loki appearing first is a small mercy, Pemota immediately moving to greet the dragon with her own rumbling call, starlight blotting out the tail ends of Nate’s rage. Silence overtakes him, doubled over and staring through a messy curtain of hair at the path, the approaching footsteps that seem to stop just as suddenly as he has.

”Wessex.” He replies out loud, calling through the hedges to give her something to follow. She’ll come upon just as he’s straightening up, a hand pushing errant strands of hair back out of his face. It should be impossible for him to look so put together, but not being able to run out of breath or truly exert himself has its perks. ”What brings you out this way?”

What is she doing out this way? Once she rounds the corner and finds him, Wessex gives Nate an odd look at his question, trying to remember that he’s under a lot of stress. “I do live in the Grounds,” she says. “Kinda lead it too, on the good days. And I can get just about anywhere. So - ”

So is the Labyrinth really ‘out this way?’

No. No it is not. It’s genuinely a coincidence, nothing brought on by Hotaru’s request, though now she can say she’s at least tried to live up to her promise to their favorite little lightning spark.

“So we’re thinking of razing the Ruins and building everything new in stone.” Which might explain why she’s out that way, towards the haunting figureheads of the past. Loki dragged her towards the pair of them, as she usually isn’t a fan of the Labyrinth’s mindfuckery. Raising both brows, she throws the question lightly back at him. “What are you doing out here?”
