Les catches her breath as something prickles at the edges of her senses. Even after so many, many months away, her instincts know this street; it has been home for a long time. There was a glimmer, and she saw... or sensed... it somehow...

but not closely enough to act on it.

She shakes her head a little and notices something else in her surroundings: a little rock on the step. She picks it up and tosses it at the light pole.

She misses.

A mongoose scurries off and brings the stone back.

Les tries again.

The large creature sits in the shadows for a few more moments carefully observing Lesawe and her mongoose. When next she throws the stone, the large feline stands up and casually steps out of the shadows and into the street. What the light reveals is a pair of emerald green eyes against a deep rich, black pelt. The cat is clearly a panther, only several times larger.

The panther pauses in the middle of the street and calmly stands there for a moment. It tilts it head to the side and looks pointedly at Lesawe, as if inviting her to examine it before it moves further.

The cat is very large, and by appearances, very powerful. Immense muscle lurks just below the thick fur and adds a sense of strength to its lithe frame. Its eyes are intelligent and attentive, and at the moment they reflect the cats benign intentions. It seems quite pleased to see Lesawe. Its nostrils flare as it picks up her scent and the scent of the mongoose, its tail twitches happily just above the ground, and a low rumbling noise can be heard if one stops to listen....for a cat this large does not purr quietly. Wink

A neighbor walking home from work sees the giant cat walk from the shadows. His jaw drops in shock and he almost drops his briefcase. Then he takes off running in the opposite direction as fast as his polished dress shoes will carry him with his red and blue striped tie flapping behind his shoulder.

The monggose laughs at him.

Lesawe, however, is busy rushing down from the steps and fearlessly throwing her arms around the panther's neck. She runs her fingers through its thick fur, and says: "Malic, it has been too long."

The townie, whom is seemingly running for his life, goes ignored by the panther save for a brief flick of his ear to identify the sound of terrified dress shoes.

Malic's purring somehow manages to get louder and he tries to return the hug by craning his neck as best he can around her. His large head and short neck somewhat impede his efforts, but he is clearly happy to see Lesawe. He sits down on his haunches right there in the middle of the street and flicks his tail back and forth quite merrily on the ground.

The purring continues as he waits for her to be done hugging him, at which point he will try to gently rub the side of his face against her shoulder as cats are wont to do. One of his ways of saying hello. Of course he won't rub so hard as to unbalance her, just a gentle "Hi, I missed you" kind of rub.

Lesawe lets up on the hug, and she receives a traditional cat-rub, which has two meanings: 1. showing affection and 2. marking as 'mine!'

Yes it does at that. The large cat has greatly missed Lesawe. And he wants to make sure that any other cats in the neighborhood know which feline she really belongs to. Wink

He didn't figure that Lesawe or the mongoose would mind. Besides he did miss her and he knows that Alendor won't mind. Being Alendor's familiar, Malic is connected to him and knows his thoughts. Malic knows that Alendor would chuckle merrily at the sight.

Which is exactly what he does now.

The chuckling elf steps out of the breezeway between Lesawe's apartment and the building next door. "Welcome home Les." His smile its warm, gentle and loving.

Les likes cats, of any size, and has no troubles with being marked as Malic's family.

"Alendor!" she spins around and hurries over to him, her grin as broad as the horizon and as bright as morning sun.

The mongoose hurries up at her heels and she quickly scoops it up and absorbs it on her way to Alendor. She wants to be all here, in one piece, to greet him.

Alendor wraps his arms round her as she gets to him. In one smooth motion he sweeps her off of her feet and twirls her around before gently setting her back down on the ground and kissing her.

"Lesawe, it is good to see you my love. I am glad that you have returned home safely."

Malic for his part grins as much as a panther can and purrs very loudly.

--------

If one were to glance down the street in the general direction that the poor townie was running, they will likely notice the top of his head peeking around the corner of a building about six blocks away. His gaze would indicate that he hasn't even noticed the couple on the road and instead is fearfully watching the large cat.

She grips his shoulders for balance as she is swung around, and then kisses him in return.

"I'm glad to be back." she whispers in his ear.

For a few long moments she just stands there in his embrace.

She finally takes a step back to look him up and down, to see how he has changed in the long time she's been away.

Lesawe herself has changed. There is something wiser and more refined in her expression, more serious, but not more somber, for wisdom brings with it an increase in joy. She is the same height, but another year has made her more woman and less girl, and she is more muscular than before. Her eyes look tired, but they are shining with happiness at being with Alendor again.

She will find little about her elf that stands out as noticeably different. There are the few things that are less noticeable, things that are both certain yet conflicting. More clearly defined muscle, yet the same size and the same gentle touch. A sharp eye that examines his beloved closely and is filled with warmth and joy at seeing her, yet there is a subtle hint of coldness beneath it.

Some things, however, are locked within the mind and not so easy to see. A slight touch of unpredictability; yet still the same steady, even temperament. A slightly more carefree perspective, yet a rough edge of unrivaled aggression.

Alendor would appear to be the same elf that she last saw upon her departure, but with the added refinement from the adaptation that comes with another year of life.

Lesawe just sighs, and smiles.

"It is so good to see you again, and to see that you're well."

She gently takes his strong, dark hand in her small, pale one. After taking a step back, as if she is about to lead him somewhere, she stops again. It seems Les isn't quite sure where she wants to go or what she wants to do next. Her eyes look tired, but somehow her mind is reluctant to simply go up to her home under the rafters of the small apartment building.

Noticing her hesitation and guessing at her indecision, Alendor smiles and says, "Would you like to go for a walk my dear? Unless you are tired and would prefer to rest from your journey."

"A walk would be lovely." she replies and she waits for him to lead the way. She has led herself on enough adventures for a while, she is ready to step back and follow for a bit.

"It is odd..." she starts to say something, and then lets her voice trail off as she looks about her, as if searching for a better way to finish this half of her thought.

Alendor smiles and steps forward and offers his arm. If she takes it he will casually lead her along the street on which she lives, meandering among the blocks of this quiet rural district for a while.

Looking pointedly at her he says, "What is it my love that you find odd?"

Malic for his part will rise from where he still sits in the middle of the street and walk over to the alley next to Lesawe's house where Alendor was hiding. He'll quietly curl up beside the building half in and half out of the shadows. There he will cat nap until their return. He's probably scarred enough NPCs for one day.

Lesawe loops her hand through is offered arm. Her long, lightly tanned fingers contrast with the dark colors of his shirtsleeve.

It takes her a few minutes to begin piecing together an answer as they walk. "... the feeling is hard to describe... I am home, I should feel like going into my home and resting, yes? However... there is a reluctance pulling at my heart that makes me question if this," she waves her hand, taking in the expanse of the entire Town in the motion, "this Town is truly where I belong.... I suppose I do know this much, it is a place with meaning to my heart."

There is an unsettled feeling, and a desire to avoid returning to a settled state, that can fill a traveler's mind upon their return to what should be 'home'. It is doubly so if they have few things truly tying them to that place.

((I realize it took me an absurdly long time to write this reply, I thank you for your patience. I like playing Lesawe, so I prefer writing her posts when I am not stressed out.))
