She was wounded and he immediately assumed that she had fought and probably killed the other three. If that was the case, then why was he still alive? Was she so angry that simply killing him wasn't enough to satisfy her?
OOC - does no one trust Hikiera?
"Now that you've caused the trouble that you have, you have a lot of making up to do. From here on, you will accompany myself and my companions on our journey. I'm not entirely sure what we're hoping to accomplish, but I'm sure a good strong elf would come in handy along the way. And don't you argue with me! There's no talking your way out of this one. You'll have to get my permission before you're allowed to go off killing people without any sort of supervision. In fact, you're not to leave my sight unless I give you permission."
Hikiera opened her mouth, eyes wide in shock, but nothing came out. She didn't have a chance, as Kiani was still barging through. Much to her shock she found herself placed in the position of babysitter to the orc when Kiani left to find the others...the orc and the half-blood.
She sat there, staring after her, a long time, just dazed. What.......how....why was she even still here? Why was she taking orders from a bloody dwarf?!
Incensed, she leapt up, the stumbled back to her knees, head spinning. She cursed under her breath. The loss of blood was heavy. She was lucky to be alive, damaged as she was. Slowly, she raised her head, glanced at the orc, then in the direction the dwarf had gone. Slowly, she sat back down, pulled out her knife, and started sharpening it, thinking.
Hearing a noise, she glanced up. The orc was awake, and was staring at her in horror. She stared at him a long time, then slowly smiled, letting her sharp teeth show. Slowly, leisurely, like she wasn't as injured as she appeared, she strolled over, continuing to sharpen her knife.
"Well good afternoon," she said with a smile. "Did we have a nice nap?" Leaning forward so she was directly in his face, she tapped his chest with her knife. "Good. You're gonna need all the sleep you got, when you get what's coming to you." Smiling sweetly, she straightened, backed a few paces, then sat down on a large rock. "You're at the mercy of a dwarf with a villainous sense of humor that surpasses even my own cruel instincts. I myself could not last against her evil wit. And you-" she pointed her knife at him. "Are her next victim. As soon as she returns, anyway. And guess who gets the pleasure of guarding you." She smiled crookedly. "We're going to have so much fun."
This felt...really fun. In that split second, she decided she'd go ahead with Kiani, whatever happened. Her clan probably wouldn't take her, even if she'd beaten Oslon, because generally stuff like that only happened if the whole clan was grumbling. She would have been removed at any time by someone or another. A dwarf was...relatively close to an elf, probably more so than an orc anyway. That and, Kiani interested her. She'd shattered her tribe, the dwarf should have been decimated or murderous. Instead...this happened. Hikiera wanted to see where this ended, even if she was trapped with another race.
Hearing footsteps, she leapt to a crouch, then saw Kiani and the other two coming. Relaxing her pose, she stared right at Kiani. "The prisoner is secure, ma'am," she said, using a word she'd heard someone use once. "We've been getting to know each other." Slowly, she tried a tentative smile.
Suddenly, she was very curious to see where this would go.
OOC - hi guys I'm back.
