Fishy Biscuits

The river that pretty much runs the length of the Old Kingdom.

Elandri-

We got out of Sindle early, under cover of a patrol being sent out. Luckily, there were no problems, and we were soon on our way towards the river. Aedyn had recommended that I keep wearing the Royal Guard surcoat for protection, and I agreed - though it was quite a bit hotter with an extra layer over my tunic.

We rode hard all day, and my muscles were protesting ever little bump on the road. I really was looking forward to reaching the river tonight.

"How long until we reach the Ratterlin?" I asked Aedyn.

~Aedyn~

'If we keep going at this pace, I'd say we could reach it by the end of today, Majesty,' I replied.

Elandri-

I sighed before I could stop myself. I didn't want to complain, but this was getting pretty painful.

~Aedyn~

I glanced at the Queen. 'Tell me if you need to take a rest,' I said.

Elandri-

"Well - I don't need to," I said. "I have to admit, though, I'll be glad when we transfer to the boat."

~Aedyn~

I smiled and nodded. 'Then you'll have a few days without any riding,' I said. 'Although I can't promise that the boat will be any more comfortable than the tents.'

Elandri-

"Oh, I don't mind that," I said. "It's just - I think my muscles need a rest."

~Aedyn~

'A few days on the river should allow that,' I said with a smile.

Elandri-

"Do you anticipate any problems on the river?" I asked.

~Aedyn~

I hesitated. 'I hope there won't be any,' I replied, 'but I can't help but think that there may be some sort of problem. Particularly when we get closer to our destination.'

Elandri-

I nodded. "I suppose my fancy disguise ought to help," I said with a small smile.

Fishy Biscuits

~Aedyn~

I smiled. 'It should help,' I agreed. 'But we shouldn't get too relaxed.'

Elandri-

"Oh, no, of course not," I said, rolling my eyes slightly. Aedyn didn't know how to relax. Of course, that was a good thing, but I could tease him if I wanted.

~Aedyn~

'You could relax, though,' I said, giving the Queen a smile. 'You won't have to do look-out duty or any sailing.'

Elandri-

"That doesn't sound very fair," I observed.

~Aedyn~

'That surcoat is only a disguise,' I said wryly. 'You're still the Queen.'

Elandri-

"Right," I said quietly. I was still getting used to this.

~Aedyn~

'I'll have to sort out the shifts when we get to the river,' I said. 'I'm not entirely sure who knows how to sail and who doesn't.'

8/31/2011 #19
Sanaryelle

Elandri-

"We're not taking on a crew, then?" I asked.

8/31/2011 #20
Fishy Biscuits

~Aedyn~

'I'd prefer not to, if we can help it,' I replied. 'It could be a bit risky, taking some unknown people with us.'

8/31/2011 #21
Sanaryelle

Elandri-

I nodded. "It could." I didn't think I could ever get used to the idea of people who I didn't even know wanting to kill me.

8/31/2011 #22
Fishy Biscuits

~Aedyn~

'I haven't sailed in a while,' I admitted, 'but I'm pretty sure I can remember how to do it.'

Elandri-

"If we're short hands, I could always pull a shift," I offered.

8/31/2011 #24
Fishy Biscuits

~Aedyn~

'I thought you said you were looking forward to the rest,' I teased.

8/31/2011 #25
Sanaryelle

Elandri-

I smiled. "Well - rest from riding."

~Aedyn~

'It'll be late when we get to the river,' I said with a smile. 'You'll most likely be occupied with having dinner.'

Elandri-

"Well, I wasn't volunteering for a shift on the first day," I said dryly.

8/31/2011 #28
Fishy Biscuits

~Aedyn~

I laughed. 'Good point. I'll probably volunteer myself, though.'

Elandri-

"You should rest tonight, Captain," I said seriously. "You'll be busy organizing any number of things."
