"Do not act as if nothing happened!" Valken said firmly "You were missing for a week! Where have you been? What were you doing? You were marked as missing and a possible deserter and you made your mother sick of worry! To shame with you! What say you in your defense?"valerio wrote:The she-wolf bowed in respect. "I am listening, chieftain."
Shadowclaw bared his teeth.valerio wrote:"I was a kit when she stopped here, forever. My mother said that her captain was somehow sure she would meet you here. That is why she left her prized treasures at Arcadia: she wanted you to find it, to know she never forgot." Gilestra put a paw over Shadowclaw's shoulder, offering an apologetic smile. "I am sorry for not telling you right away: You were too convinced this still was your century, the shock would've undermined your sanity. I needed to show you that...time had passed.
"Your ship and your crew is still waiting for you, Captain. I believe they have been missing you a lot."
"My sanity is something you can't break so easily, long ears!" he growled and kicked the rabbit in the chest, sending him to the ground. "If you wanted to protect me so much you should've told me right away!" the set of magical earrings on the ocelot's ears turned into green smoke and formed as a sharp blade in his paw. He pointed the blade at the rabbit "You know nothing of this ship and the magic surrounding it! Give me a reason not to-"
Before he could finish, a creak echoed throughout the cave - it was emanating from the ship. Shadowclaw turned to the vessel, as it creaked again.
"Guess the rage was to overtake me again, old friend. Thank you for snapping me out." the ocelot turned to the rabbit "You are in luck, long ears. The ship saved you."
