In Destance, being different is a crime. Enter at your own risk, fight, fall, and die as one of them. Or perhaps, rise above it all. Maybe you can set them free.

    Methias blinked and blushed slightly as he shook his head. "No, I've never really been around them. Not since I was a child." He raised a brow and narrowed his eyes slightly. "What are you thinking?"


    The woman listened, giving a thoughtful nod. She pointed at a crooked finger at him. "You be good to Tobias.. . .or else," she said then turned away and went back to her activities.

    Aaron --

    He blinked, slowly turning to face Tobias with a raised brow.
    "Was... that a yes...?"


    Katherine --

    She grinned, grabbing his hand to drag him forward.
    "You'll see..." she said, pausing before the gypsy dancers. "Um... sorry to interrupt, but my friend here has never done a gypsy dance... I was wondering if one of you could show him... I'm no good at it myself."
    Grinning she did her best to hide the smile behind her free hand, letting go of Mathias's with her other.

    Toby blinked and gave a small smile. She looked at him and nodded, her eyes bright as she gave his hand a light squeeze. "Yes! She say yes!"

    Methias blinked and blushed as the girl took his hand and started pulling him in to dance. Being the gentleman he was, he didn't pull away, and though his eyes were as wide as saucers, he danced with the gypsy woman.

    Katherine giggled as she watched, feeling rather pleased with herself. She wasn't sure if there was a way for Mathias to get her back for that, so she felt pretty safe. Because of that, she simply stood and watched them dance.


    Aaron blinked, then gave her a wide grin.
    "That's wonderful!" he paused, a sheepish smile coming to his lips. "What did I tell you? I have charm with the old women.."

    Toby grinned and kissed his cheek, blushing. "When? Soon?" She asked with a nod, wondering when they were going to get married.

    Methias eventually got to get away and went back and stood by Kathrine. He frowned at her and cleared his throat as he straightened his clothes. He'd been having a good time after the initial shock was over, but he wasn't got to let on to her that he had.

    Katherine--

    She giggled, returning his glare with a wide smile.
    "Oh, come on! You can't tell me you didn't enjoy that a little..." she said, rolling her eyes a little as she followed the performers with her eyes.


    Aaron --

    He grew red at the kiss, free hand going to his cheek.
    "I was thinking... soon. It wouldn't be proper for you to live in my home without us being wed, and when your camp leaves..." he paused, searching his mind for a moment before giving her a rue smile. "Whenever you think best."

    Toby blinked and blushed, biting her lip. Her eyes darted around the camp then back to him. "We leave in five days," she said gesturing to the camp. "Sunday? Four days?" She blushed even more at the thought, but it was the longest she could get, and just today or tomorrow sounded almost to soon. "Unless you want to do it sooner."

    Methias blinked and tried to hide the smile that pulled at his lips, the corners turning up slightly. "I'm not much for dancing with strange women," he said with a bit of a chuckle.

    Aaron considered, that would be enough time to get thing together at his home in preparation of her coming. Perhaps he could even make her something... a homecoming gift. That would be appropriate, at least he thought so. There was also the matter of reasoning with Katherine to get her used to the idea...
    "That sounds perfect." he said, nodding slowly.



    Katherine just grinned, shaking her head a little.
    "Then you're no fun. What if I were the one to dance with you, would you mind then?" she paused, grinning even wider. "After all, I'm not that strange..."

    Toby gave a small nod and looked at their hands, attempting to decide what they should do next. "What now?" She asked softly, figuring he'd have a better idea when it came to these things than she did.

    Methias smiled and gave a slight bow. "It wouldn't be strange at all, I know you." He debated on trying to get them to go else where, because if he was right she'd get him to dance with her. But then again, the thought wasn't all that bad.

    Katherine giggled when he bowed, her eyes flickering back to the dancers with that mischievousness look again. She couldn't help the small thrill that went through her at the idea of dancing with him. It wasn't the idea of him directly, but the idea of dancing with a man.
    "Then prove it, offer to dance with me."

    Aaron frowned a little, considering the question.
    "Well, we could explore some more... with your mother knowing you are to be wed... well, she can't begrudge your showing me around."

    Methias raised a brow, pausing slightly. He took a deep breath and turned so he was facing her completely, giving another bow as he did so. "May I have this dance, lady Kathrine?" His hand was held out to her, still bowed.

    Toby grinned and giggled slightly. "As you wish," she said with a curtsey before she took his hand and began to lead him back around camp again. The smile never seemed to leave her face, the feeling of freedom filling her.

    As they passed a tent, a dark face watched them from the shadows, eyes narrowed.

    Aaron, of course, was unaware of their watcher. Instead he commented here and there on things, asking questions sometimes. He enjoyed how she seemed to be happy, doing his best to improve her mood even further if he could. She was a sweet girl, and he couldn't shake the excitement over the fact that she would soon become his wife.


    Katherine's hands flew up to cover her mouth as she giggled again, a pleased flush coloring her cheeks.
    "You may, sir Methias." she responded, lowering her hands and doing her best to changer her voice to that of a proper lady.
    Slowly, attempting to seem dignified, she placed her hand in his, then allowed a broad grin to cross her face.

    It wasn't long until Toby was leaning against him as they walked, her head on his shoulder and her hand in his. "This is my favorite part," she said as they reached the edge of camp. It had been set up about a yard from the edge of a of a piece of land that jutted out from the rest. "The sun sets here, and it is beautiful. The trees, the weather, the stars. It's all just. .. beautiful."


    Methias grinned and curled his fingers around her hand as he straightened himself and pulled her closer. He then proceeded to dance with her much in the same way the gypsies danced. His eyes never seemed to leave her face, and the smile seemed to stay present on his lips.

    Katherine blushed bright red at first, realizing that the village girls would hardly consider this appropriate behavior. After a moment though she shoved that thought aside, since when had anything she'd done been considered 'appropriate' by the other girl's standards?
    Instead of thinking she simply danced with Methias, returning his smile with her own. The fact that it was him, someone she knew very well, and not another man, allowed her to relax more than she might have been able to otherwise.


    Aaron looked around the area, giving the land an appreciative smile before looking back down at her.
    "I agree, it is part of why I've chosen to stay here, in this town, then elsewhere. The area is simply... amazing." he paused, considering complimenting her as well, perhaps making a sly comment on how she improved its beauty; but then simply flushed red, unable to bring himself to say it.

    Toby sighed and gave a small nod. "The only thing that takes from it's beauty is the wolves," she said quietly. "The wolves are like black marks on the land, leaving nothing but death....and it's getting colder which means there will be more of them. .. doesn't it?" Her eyes turned to his face, hoping he'd say no, but also hoping that if he did say yes that he'd make promises of protection to her. After all what good was freedom if you didn't live to enjoy it?

    Methias let his smile grow and his body relax, a deep resonating laugh seeming to bubble up inside him and spill forth. He hadn't been this happy in ages.

    Katherine couldn't help the giggle that came out when he laughed, her eyes lighting up. She loved it when he laughed and, in her opinion, he didn't do it near often enough. Continuing to dance for awhile she simply grinned at him, hoping the mood would last longer than just the dancing.


    Aaron hesitated for a moment, then nodded slowly.
    "There will be more wolves, yes. But there is no need to worry about them. I will watch over you, they seldom get very close to town, and I will be careful when we travel." he paused for a moment, eyes darkening slightly. "I'm always careful then, plenty of weapons in the wagon. There is no need for you to worry."

    Toby watched him for a long moment then gave a small nod. "I trust you, Aaron." It gave her comfort, his reassuring, and she felt safe for the first time in a long time. She rested her head against his shoulder again and sighed, closing her eyes happily and sending up a prayer of thanks in her heart for the man standing beside her.

    Methias continued to dance and laugh, eventually coming to a stop. His breathing was hard, but his face was happy and his dark eyes shined like they hadn't in years. "I swear you'll be the death of me, Kathrine," he teased as he tried to catch his breath.

    Katherine giggled, rolling her eyes a little.
    "I'm sure, because dancing is really, really hard work." she replied, breathing a bit heavily herself.
    She loved the fact he seemed happy, her own mood soaring in return.

    Aaron blinked in surprise, carefully not moving except to turn his head to see her better. He couldn't believe his luck, to be standing here, with her.
    "... thank-you." he murmured softly. "For trusting me."

    Toby turned her head again and looked up at him, a soft smile touching her lips. "I feel safe.. ..for the first time in a long time...thank you.." She debated on kissing his lips, her eyes flickering between them and his eyes, but she wasn't certain she was suppose to.


    Methias chuckled and gave a small nod, his hand still in hers. "Aye, that too." Taking a deep breath he steadied himself and cleared his throat. "How long have we been gone?"

    Katherine frowned, a crease forming on her forehead as she turned to look at the sun, leaving her hands where they were. She didn't see a problem with the hand holding, they were friends after all.
    "... I'd say its late noon." she said slowly. "So, more than a few hours. Why?"


    Aaron hesitated, noticing the look. He flushed red, considering for a moment before bending his head to kiss her. After all, they were to be wed... surely kisses were something that most couples, although they were unique, were doing at this point. He couldn't be sure though... he hadn't exactly gotten close to a girl before, as he kept reminding himself.

    Toby blinked in slight shock but relaxed and kissed him back as she held tightly to his hand. Her heart pounded against her chest while her cheeks filled with heat. It was the first time she'd ever been kissed, and so far, it was a perfect kiss.

    Methias sighed and gave a small nod. "I must return to the shop soon," he said as he looked down at her. "Miss Heathertin will have my head if her bracelet isn't finished by tonight."

    A small pout tugged onto Katherine's lips at the announcement, eyes flickering away from him. She wasn't near satisfied with her visit to the camp yet, in her opinion at least.
    "... Aaron was supposed to be coming here today." she said after a moment. "You could go back, I could find him. I wouldn't be without an escort..."

    Aaron kissed her back, being gentle as he could. The kiss wasn't what he'd imagine it to be, but better. Softly squeezing her hand as he did, he hoped the motion came across as reassuring. After a long moment, he pulled away, eyes searching hers for the reaction. Some part of Aaron warned him that she may not have liked it, a small part.

    Methias frowned slightly and shook his head. "I will help you find your brother before I leave. I don't want to leave you wandering." He gave her hand a gentle squeeze and looked around. "Which way do you wish to go?"

    Toby stared at him with bright, wide eyes, and slightly breathless. She smiled, her face flushed. She lifted a hand to feel her cheeks and giggled a bit, her smile only growing. "That was my first kiss..."

    Katherine pouted, giving him a pleading look. She hadn't had any plans of actually looking for Aaron, after all, for all she knew he'd gone home a long time ago. Thinking quickly she sighed, piling on the puppy dog eyes as well.
    "Oh, please, Methias... I'll find him, I promise. Just please, please let me explore a little longer? I won't get into any trouble..."

    Aaron flushed an even deeper shade of red, resisting the urge to raise a hand to his lips.
    "Mine too..." he said, chuckling softly.

    Toby smiled up at him before reaching up on her tip toes and kissing him again, her hands resting on his chest. This was going to be a good arrangement, she could feel it.

    Methias stared at her, then shook his head. "Generally, I may, but I don't trust you alone in a gypsy camp." He then took her by the hand and began to wander around, looking for Aaron. He spotted him up on a hill with a girl, and started to move towards them. As they got closer, he noticed they were kissing, and he raised a brow.
