"Forest, mountains, lakes...seems." But that had him curious
too. "Most are that become trackers, you can see all those little
broken twigs most don't notice or the misplacement of a stone. The
disturbing of the forest floor." "That...and plus I can move
pretty darn fast for a human. Always could outrun all the other

but she said nothing.

time on the morrow, my friend. If you wish information on the locket,
you shall receive it by the person who would know the most." Of
course, it sounded as if she was referring to her own father since she
had already mentioned he might possibly know more.
smile that came with her words, pleased him no end. She could see it
there and in the light of hope in his eyes. "It will be kind of
strange to finally find out who your parents were, where they had been
from. If you have any brother's or sisters." Brothers or sisters

family out there."
"Is that what you wish? To have a large family?" Arms crossed
in front of her chest as she was comfortable in that lean against the
rail. Clad in colors of the forest, every shade of brown complimented a
sashling of beige and the cloak of deep green.

to realize it could be one end of the scale to the other.

was that feel again. "There is something out there, like that other
night. Feels the same." Hell if he knew what it was! Distracted
from the talk of her father then back. "Heard a night bird the
other evening too. Maybe there is such a thing as a real spirit

thoughts as well; as Mike sensed it so did Keera but for different
reasons. She was full-blooded elf, and as such, she could feel the
stirring of another should she choose to. But it was Mike her gaze
finally rested upon.
kind of went like this." And he imitated that note with a whistled
one. It wasn't quite pure but it was very close. Obviously he liked the
way that bird's note sounded. There and gone before he spoke.
"Err....kind of like that."
Her heart clenched as every assumption was indeed turned to fact by the
very whistle. Gazing back to where she had watched only moments ago, a
light smile touched upon her lips. He had to have heard it. He just had

Meekel leaped up and back in a blur, standing now on the ledge. His
breath was drawn fast. "Impossible." None had been taught his
skill since he left. It would have been left to him to teach his own, or
others that held the ability within their clan. He was hearing things.
It wasn't quite true to the note. He relaxed some but emotions were

words else Mike would be suspicious as to why she remained so quiet. Her
gaze was stilled on the distance, intent and very much vibrant.

gaze, however, kept drifting between the small group and the
surroundings; she would be able to watch every word and guard every
thought.. until a familiar voice carried on the autumn breeze. "Cormamin
lindua ele lle.." It was a very soft whisper to the winds as she
stood to face the path she had taken earlier. Hands braced on the rail,
her gaze darted along the tree line of the woods.

forest's edge. Keera shown like a star as many of their people did to
each other. It made him realize just how long he had been gone. How long
it had been to speak his own language.
"Err....I look better in the dark?" Spoken in response to one

brown eyes but the hairs on the back of his neck were prickling too like
he was being watched by unseen eyes. He also heard Keera. "Who are
you talking to?" It didn't seem to be him even if she spoke in that
language of hers. He did like it, just didn't understand it.

the familiar tune being whistled and was curious about it. Who wouldn't
be? A smile touched her mouth as she let her gaze linger on the start of
the forest. "One of my people in the woods." It was not an Elvin
trait to lie, nor would she ever especially to people she considered
friends. Her attention slowly drifted back to regard Mike, calm and
almost emotionless for there was still a hint of a smile catching the
corners of her mouth.

awkwardness and the reality of it. She was amongst Humans that might not
understand her speaking to what seemed the shadows and no one there. He
would not compromise her amongst her friends. Parting words drifted in a
low musical way this time. "Lissenen ar' maska'lalaith tenna' lye

where the woods started, so soft it would have seemed she merely sighed.
But the elf would have heard them along the soft breeze that fluttered
in and around some bare tree limbs. She pushed away from the rail and
quickly repositioned the weapons over her shoulder. She then turned to
Mike. "I need to return to the camp. I shall meet you tomorrow at
my father's quarters. Just tell one of the guards, he'll direct

to where the other sat with a quick smile. "Eventide."
And then she followed the path until she disappeared in the woods; the
same place she had been looking to from the porch.
