Who

Ursus Pendal [Sci-Fi]

In the middle of a windswept heath a blue box slowly appears, out of it steps a rather well endowed woman in a tweed jacket.

"Feel that breeze!"
Metakirb

Cactra follows her out.
Who

With Taren.

"So what do you think? I should have brought a kite."
Metakirb

She smiles.
Who

"What do you think Taren?"

"It's a bit boring..."

"What?"

Who looks a little disappointed, but it is rather boring, just heathland in all directions with a small cluster of lights in the distance.
Metakirb

What are those lights?
Who

"I don't know, lets go find out."

Who starts heading towards the lights, her jacket blowing in the wind.
Metakirb

Cactra follows.
Who

And thus so does Taren, as the get closer it'll become clear that the cluster of lights is coming from a small settlement complete with moat and point wall.

"Well that's less than welcoming."
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

"Better go see what's wrong with them."

See, now Taren's gone from bored to more than a little scared.
Metakirb

Cactra nods a little.
Who

Eventually they'll reach the moat and wall that defends the settlement.

"Who goes there?"

"We are travellers, we mearly seek shelter for the night."

A guard looks at them over the wall and a gate opens.

"There's room at the inn."

"Thank you."
Metakirb

Cactra sticks with Who.
Who

Eventually they come across a building with a sign reading 'The Rocketeer' on it.

"Well I guess this is us."
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

Who walks through the door, inside the floor is covered in makeshift beds and people are huddled around a small fire in the center of the room.

"Looks like it's a good thing we turned up when we did."
Metakirb

Another nod.
Who

Our intrepid heroes are approached by one of the huddled masses.

"Are you from the outside?"
Metakirb

Another nod.
Who

He moves back a bit, looking a little frightened.

"Did you see it?"
Metakirb

It?

(eye?)
Who

"You mean you don't know?"
Metakirb

Once again nod.
Who

"Come sit by the fire and I shall tell you."

You may be wondering why Who hasn't said a word yet, she wants to see how new Cactra deals with things.
Metakirb

She hesitates before sitting.
Who

Who and Taren sit either side of her.

"This place used to be much more than you see now. Not by much but we weren't reduced to wooden walls and torch flames."
Metakirb

She nods slightly.
Who

"Then it fell from the sky and started to gorge itself on our technology. Our weapons were powerless, if anything it made it stronger. Now we're the only ones left."

"Why haven't you called for help?"

"The creatures first meal was our communication's antena."
Metakirb

More slow nodding.
Who

"Can you help us? You must have come here for a reason."
Metakirb

Cactra looks at Who.

(eye?)
Who

(Check your pm's)

He nods. The man jumps up.

"Thank you! People, these braves souls have offered to slay the beast!"

This statement is met with snorts of derision.
Metakirb

Cactra smiles a little.
Who

"The creature moves at night, you can stay here until dawn."
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

"You can sleep there for the night."

He gestures to two mattresses in the corner.

"Thank you."

Who and Taren start walking over.
Metakirb

As does cactra.
Who

"Okay, you two can have the mattresses, I'll take the floor."

Taren moves to lie down.
Metakirb

you can share with me.
Who

"You sure? I mean, old me and you would have a hard time fitting on there and now that...well you know."
Metakirb

She nods, she's sure.
Who

"Fine."

Who lies down on the mattress.

"Night Taren."

"Goodnight..."

He thinks for a second.

"Dad."
Metakirb

night.

She cuddles up to who.
Who

Who cuddles back, smiling a little.

"Night."
Metakirb

She kisses her and closes her eyes.
Who

Who blushes and gently returns it before attempting to scooch back a little and close her eyes.
Metakirb

Cactra hugs her so she can't move away.
Who

Well then eventually Who's going to fall asleep, a heavy blush on her face.
Metakirb

Cactra also drifts off.
Who

Who wakes up at the first sign of light through the windows and tries to get up without waking Cactra.
Metakirb

Not very easy.
Who

Then I guess she'll wake her up then won't she?

"Sorry."
Metakirb

She sleepily tries to kiss her.
Who

Given the fact that people are already up and about, Who attempts to lean back and away from the kiss.
Metakirb

She groans slightly.
Who

"You can go back to sleep if you want."
Metakirb

She tries a kiss again.
Who

Who gives in and she gets a brief kiss, much to the consternation of those around them.
Metakirb

She smiles and closes her eyes again.
Who

Well I guess we all know who's in charge now.

Who shuffles outside, ignoring the looks she's getting from people.
Metakirb

What kind of looks?
Who

Disapproval that she just kissed another girl. What else would it be?
Metakirb

At her chest?
Who

I don't think Who could cope with that.
Metakirb

Cactra sleeps.
Who

Who has a wander round the settlement to get her baring, she's almost got the hang of her shoes too.
Metakirb

Cactra sits up and yawns.
Who

Taren's still asleep on the other mattress. Who's still outside.
Metakirb

She waits for Taren to wake up.
Who

Who returns before that, still ignoring glares.

"We should probably get going..."
Metakirb

She nods slightly.
Who

Who looks down at Taren, contemplating waking him up.
Metakirb

They probably shouldn't leave him here.
Who

Indeed, Who starts slowly nudging him awake.

"Huh?"
Metakirb

Cactra watches.
Who

"Morning already? Five more minutes.."
Metakirb

Okay.
Who

Who's not going to argue and sits next to Cactra as their son turns over to catch some more sleep.
Metakirb

She smiles at her.
Who

Who smiles back nervously

"Sleep well?"
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

"I was a little squashed..."
Metakirb

Sorry.
Who

"Long as you were okay. So, ready for a bit of monster hunting?"
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

"Right, you wake him up. I'll wait outside, people keep looking at me."

To be fair, the tweed probably doesn't help.
Metakirb

Cactra tries to wake him.
Who

He groans unhappily and rolls over.
Metakirb

She tries to pick him up.
Who

He's easily picked up, slowly opening his eyes.
Metakirb

She smiles at him.
Who

"Where we going?"
Metakirb

To help people.

She carries him outside.
Who

Who's waiting outside, trying not to look at the various other people about giving her looks ranging from disapproval to lust.
Metakirb

Cactra smiles at her.
Who

"Good you're here. Lets get going."

Who starts to very quickly make his way out of the settlement. Soon shes out the sooner people'll stop looking at her.
Metakirb

In a rush? Don't enjoy people looking at you like this?
Who

Who goes bright red, Taren's right there.

"No of course I don't."
Metakirb

She smiles and nods.
