Cassandra frowned down in concentration at her collection of sticks. Without a flint, she wasn't entirely certain how to set them ablaze. Would rubbing them together quickly do the trick? Surely there was more to it than that.

Listening as Saphira and Kitty continued their conversation, Cassandra frowned at the idea of boiling the water. As long as you didn't drink sewage water, there was no reason to fear other water, right? She had never heard of such a problem before, not even in her books.

Were things so different in the big cities? Did they have dirty water, different from Lorham? Perhaps that was why they did not have farmlands, opting to build rather than cultivate the earth. Boiling every usage of water would be far too difficult when watering crops.

She left the other two to their conversation though, smiling to herself at the idea of Kitty getting to grow closer to Saphira.

Instead, she focused on her sticks, letting the conversation fall over her like a comforting veil.

As darkness fell, Leon waited patiently for Shashka to deal with the rabbit her snare had captured, looking over the growing grains to spot the camp; it wasn't too far and easy to find as someone had a fire going. He hadn't particularly enjoyed hunting with the dark-haired girl, especially when three of his arrows had missed their mark when the rabbits had escaped after sensing them somehow. He had much more experience in forested terrain. He did, however, reclaim the arrows to use again, so at least that was in his favor. And they had fresh meat. 

As they headed towards the warm glow he kept his side of whatever agreement Shashka believed him held to, explaining succinctly, if not the entire story, "I can't leave because Saphira wants me to stay and I owe her too much to just shrug that off, even if her choice of travel companions annoy me."

"Thank you," she told Kitty as she took the pot. "I suppose if you both feel safe enough, I'll just use this for myself. Or we can take turns. I don't really know how you do it in the villages, but in the city there's lots of pollution and it's easier to catch diseases if you're not careful."

She turned toward Cassandra then, who was eyeing the pile of sticks as if she was trying to start a fire with her mind. Unless, of course, that was her power. Which would be very useful, of course.

"Do you need help?" she asked, wondering if Cassandra had done this before.

Wow, cities really were different! It sounded exhausting, actually. The most Kitty had really worried about in her daily life were the actions of the Trials, and that predominantly centered on whether she'd find something she excelled at and avoiding injury in the process. The more she heard these notes from Saphira and Shashka, the more she felt thankful to have lived somewhere like Lorham. This spurred a sense of homesickness that tugged at her heart. She had never actually wanted to escape or to leave. In fact, if it weren't for...

Her eyes widened for just a moment, but she gave her head a slight shake and went back to her work. When the hunters returned, she planned to be ready for cooking so that everyone could soon get to sleep. They'd need their rest so they could continue on tomorrow.

Shashka was glad to see that one of her traps had come through for her. It was always hit or miss with trapping. Sometimes you didn't get lucky, and she hadn't thought to bring enough cord to feed this many mouths. Like Leon, she had planned on going it mostly alone.

"I can't leave because Saphira wants me to stay..."


"And do the others know about this? And what exactly do you owe her? She helped you?" She uttered the last sentence with a good dose of incredulity. Shashka knew that she was prying, but she was intensely curious about what the princess with the punch could have done for this seemingly ordinary boy. It was hard to imagine her going out of her way for someone else.

Cassandra glanced up to Saphira, eying the other girl. It was hard to think of someone from the cities knowing how to start a fire, as it didn't line up to the stories Cassandra built up in her mind.

But if it was necessary to boil water to keep from pollution and disease, who knew what else was wrong with the cities? Maybe they didn't have lamps and lanterns, either, and needed to depend on fires instead. It certainly painted a different picture of the big cities she'd daydreamed about.

But she figured if anyone from the cities would know helpful and practical things, it would be Saphira.

"Help would be appreciated," Cassandra said with a smile, moving over a little to make room for the other girl. "I'm experienced with making a fire with a flint, but... I should have brought one with me, it seems."

Instead, she'd packed her bag full of her books and that was about it. Sneaking away from home hadn't left her with much opportunity to pack effectively but now Cassandra wondered why she let herself come so unprepared. Books would soothe the heart, but they did little else. Still, just knowing they were nestled amongst her belongings, just waiting to be opened so that they could share their stories, brought her a sense of peace.

His brow furrowed at her last utterance; why was it so unbelievable that Saphira would help? It was his understanding that she had been the reason Shashka and Kitty had gotten away from the bandits; but then that was only a piece of the story. He had no idea what history Saphira had with Shashka, but judging from recent interactions he didn't feel all that biased pre-siding with Saphira on any past grievances between them. "They know," he replied, his tone neutral, "Cassandra was there. Saphira woke me up, untied me, and covered for me while I escaped; if it weren't for her I'd've been back there when the bandit camp was raided." And then who knew what could have happened. His secret'd be out, that was for sure, but desperate people did stupid things and he was only too relieved that he did not have to witness whatever stupid thing that highwayman would have done. He turned the conversation back towards her, "Is it so far-fetched to you that she helped me?"

She wondered how Cassandra had fed herself and stayed warm all this time without knowing how to build a fire, but so far, with the exception of Charles, these village people had seemed extremely lucky. They seemed like there was no way they could have survived these long, and yet. Maybe they all had spirit affinity.

She found a straight dry stick and began to gather materials to make a tinder bundle from old plants, bits of wood, and dead grass, making sure everything was very dry. Then she found twigs and sticks for the kindling, and a flat wood to act as the base. Once everything was ready, she sharpened the end of the stick with her hunting knife, then put the sharpened end on a perpendicular angle onto the flat piece of wood.

She sat down, put both hands on either side of the stick, and rubbed them together with her palms flat, making the stick twirl and create friction between it and the flat wood. It took a while and several false starts, but eventually an ember sparked, which she transferred onto the tinder. She blew on it to make the flame bigger before putting it on the kindling, feeding the flames with more wood until it was big enough to boil or roast something over.

"They know..."


She couldn't mask her surprise at this. If everyone knew, then why didn't he just tell her straight away instead of dragging on this whole awkward encounter between them? Her brows knitted. Seriously, what an ass.

"Is it so far-fetched to you that she helped me?"

She snorted - or, she would have, had her nostrils not been realigned fairly recently. She gestured to her nose. "The best advice I can give you is to avoid her left hook." Or was it the right? She couldn't really remember and doubted it mattered. Point is, don't let her punch you in the face. She smirked at the boy, wondering what he'd make of that.

Saphira assisted Cassandra with the fire before Kitty could offer her own help. That was alright. She could easily find more to do until the hunters returned. This was... nice. It reminded her of the day she had spent with Cassandra and Charles in the early days of their venture as Star Catchers. She was careful to omit some of what she remembered, leaving a vague shadow in the place that had once been a gentle, hard-working, too soon removed from them person. Burying it was the only way she knew how to get through this. It had worked before; she had to believe it would work again.

Cassandra watched as Saphira worked. Efficient and quick, as was to be expected by the red-haired girl. She watched as though reading a book, wanting to learn so that she could do the same another night.

And, she was pleased to find, that it really was as simple as rubbing sticks together. There perhaps was more finesse to it than that, but Casssandra felt confident she could give it a good try the next night.

From the beginning, she'd been with Charles, and Charles had made the fires for them. Cassandra had assumed the two of them would stick together for a long while, and she'd have plenty of time to learn how to make a fire for herself if a time came when they'd part ways.

But their time had been cut short, the whole situation striking home just how dangerous this entire endeavor truly was. So Cassandra paid attention, memorizing the way Saphira moved her hands, the way she blew on the embers to encourage them to grow. She couldn't believe of a situation in which Saphira wouldn't come out on top, didn't want to think of the possibility. But still Cassandra watched, just in case the dangers of this voyage stole away another friend. She would need to know these things to carry on.

"You did that so expertly," Cassandra said with a smile, enjoying the heat coming from the flames. She stretched her hands towards it as she glanced to Saphira. "Do you often create fires in the big cities?"

Her gesture drew his attention to her nose - apparently she hadn't been born that way. He smirked before forcing it away - laughing at another's misfortune wasn't who he was or who he wanted to be. ... but he did enjoy the idea that Saphira had clocked her hard enough to brake her nose. She was, perhaps, the single-most aggravating person he had ever had the pleasure of dealing with. At least she seemed to be off of the rumor, though if all it took was mentioning that the others were there he wondered why she had even brought it up to begin with as, if he remembered correctly, that was how Cassandra explained his being there to her to begin with, back in the cemetery. Was she checking to see that the stories matched? And if so, should he be offended that she thought he'd be so stupid as to catch himself in a lie that simple?

On impulse he wanted to return that she had probably earned it, but with camp so close he just let it go with a shrug. 

When they entered the clearing that made up their camp, which had been nicely swept and organized with a fire blazing, he paused to appreciate the work they had done before looking for a clear spot to skin and clean the game to prepare it for dinner. Three rabbits shared among five should be more than enough, especially if they had a side dish of some sort. If only this were a vegetable field. Ultimately he chose to leave the campsite - it was clean and he didn't want to contaminate it with the remains of the rabbit once it was cleaned - and so moved towards the wall of barley to step through and find a spot close by.

She saw that Leon carried game, and the other two had the fire working up nicely, so the pale-haired girl dusted off her hands and scurried after him.

"Please, I'll help," she smiled, having come equipped with the knife she'd need for the work. This was good. This was what she needed—a purpose. At this point, Kitty would be up for anything. It almost reminded her of being home, back in Lorham where she was constantly called upon for tasks of all sorts that required hard work but not expertise. This was exactly the sort of thing she could be counted on for.

She didn't plan to try doing something new just because she had left her hometown. After all, she intended to return... if she could. If any of them could.

He looked over at the unexpected help and offered her one of the rabbits, "Thank you," and got to work, kneeling to get a more advantageous angle. He halfway wished there had been rocks around to make a better cutting surface, but making due with what he had was part of the quest. He pulled out a little knife to help push the process along. As he worked, carefully cutting off the back limbs and pulling the skin and fur towards the head, he asked conversationally, "Did you trial with trappers?" the question poised as though he believed it were among the only options to have learned that specific skill.

Kitty stifled a giggle at the question. Her hands were busy, already engaged in the familiar process, or she might have raised one in an attempt to cover her mouth. Thankfully she knew better than that.

"No, I cook. For my family," she replied, gray-blue eyes twinkling.

Even the other farm children she knew above toddling age could dress game. In a small community like Lorham, knowing how to feed yourself and yours wasn't optional. It hadn't even occurred to her that this might not be the way of a bigger city, until this very moment, when Leon made it clear that—at least from where he came from, it could have been different. She felt struck again by the strangeness of it all, giving her head a slight shake to disburse the thoughts.

"The fur?" she asked, wondering if that was something he wanted or needed. Kitty knew they'd have to bury the offal if they didn't want to attract predators at night.

She laughed before she could stop herself, then shook her head. "No. But I did some training the moment I decided to be a Star Catcher. Learned some basic survival skills to make sure I can make it to the end."

Again, she wondered how Cassandra had fared this far without knowing how to build a fire, but that seemed rude to ask. For her, it seemed obvious that it was one of the most basic survival skills one would need before deciding to sign up for this. Did the rest of them just decide to be a Star Catcher on a whim? A selfish part of her whispered that it must mean they didn't deserve the star, seeing that she had worked hard to prepare herself for it and they hadn't. To think that someone had simply decided to go after the star without any sort of preparation almost felt offensive to her. For a moment she wondered, was she doing the right thing after all, helping everyone else? Was she just letting them be carried? Maybe it didn't make any difference to her whether or not they got their wish as long as she got hers, but didn't that seem just a tiny bit unfair? That some of them should get to coast along and have their greatest wish come true because she worked hard for it.

Her attention was diverted from her thoughts when she saw William and Shashka return. She looked visibly relieved, and happy to see that they had brought back game as well. Maybe not much, but should be enough for everyone to at least get their fill. On this night, at least, she was dining on someone else's hard work as well. But maybe she'd have to reconsider who deserved what once the star was in her possesion.

Cassandra looked at Saphira, taking in the contours of her face. She frowned a little, but did not reply. Of course Saphira would prepare beforehand, that seemed exactly like what she would expect of the efficient girl.

Learning extra survival skills hadn't seemed quite so important to Cassandra. She had skills of her own, cultivated over a long life of hardwork and responsibilities. But due to those responsibilities, when would she have had time to learn other non-essential skills? When your entire family depended on the food you grow, taking time away from that was next to impossible.

When she did find down time, it was to relax after a hard day's work, to read and lose herself in the stories that drove such passion within her. Otherwise, she might have broke long ago.

Plus, up until the point she actually left, Cassandra hadn't truly decided whether she would give in to her desire or not. To her, no matter how much she desired that star, the greatness it could achieve, it was the actual journey that spurred her on even more. Her one chance to have an adventure, to feel alive with excitement. The journey to seek out a way to change her life for the better was just as important as the goal itself. Selfish and perhaps stupid, but she was here all the same.

And she felt confident her books would help carry her the rest of the way whenever her own skills were lacking. She might not be as skilled as Saphira or as intelligent as Leon, but who was to say those were the only successful ways to do this?

Leon and Shashka's return lead to thoughts of food and Cassandra hadn't realized just how hungry she was until she pictured roasting rabbits over the fire. She smiled at the sight of Kitty and Leon cleaning the game together. It was the kind of camaraderie she had been hoping for, and seeing that kind of bonding involve Kitty made her heart warm.

She glanced around, wondering what she could do to help around the camp, but at the moment, she was content to stay near the fire until she found something specific to do.

Shashka flopped down by the fire, feeling satisfied with the way things had turned out. She didn't like Leon, but she could tolerate him, and she had to admit he was useful. He'd caught more game than her, after all. She watched as Kitty joined him to clean their rabbits. Kind of nice having an errand boy, she joked to herself.

"So," she said, stretching out, "nobody was going to mention that murder boy isn't actually a murderer?" She looked pointedly at Saphira. "I'm all for girlish modesty," she prodded, "but it'd be nice to know I wasn't about to be, y'know, killed at any moment."

Cassandra frowned at Shaska's words, glancing over at the other girl. She didn't know Shashka, had only spoken a few words to her thus far, but her comment made no sense. Was she attempting to conjure drama, or had she been sincerely afraid of Leon this whole time and was now feeling more at ease?

"What do you mean?" she asked, studying Shashka's face. "We're all friends here. No one's going to try to kill anyone."

Friends was perhaps a stronger word than was strictly true. After all, as little as she knew Shashka, she knew Saphira and Leon only a little more, and that was only through observation rather than knowing any true details of their lives, interests, or anything friends should know about each other. That didn't stop her from thinking of them all as such, however. They were allies in this dangerous situation they all found themselves in. They'd need to rely on each other, to trust each other, to get through this. If that didn't solidify them as friends, what would?

Still, Shashka's wording was strange. Too pinpointed to be left alone, despite the fact that Cassandra had no problems in trusting everyone in their group at the moment.

Her first instinct was to laugh, but she stopped, realizing that the girl wasn't joking. "Are you kidding? The Highwall Murderer? How could you not have heard about this?" Shashka looked incredulous. "Our good buddy Leon over there is the hack-and-slasher of legend," she stated, rolling her eyes. "He says it's all just a big, self made rumor because he wants to be all lone wolf-y about his travels, but he can't. He's staying with the group for a certain special someone." She batted her eyelashes and made a kissy face at Saphira, teasing her. "Apparently he owes you one."

Oh.

Right. 

He kept his head down, focusing on his cuts to ease his embarrassment. He should have considered that option, especially knowing full-well that she was from Lorham. With such a small village surrounded by such lush lands, it was only reasonable that she knew the skill. He appreciated that she did not make fun of him for the assumption - he had little doubt that Shashka would not have been so kind - but rather corrected him in a friendly, polite fashion. He felt further embarrassed recalling the less-than-kind thoughts he had had about her the previous night at the tavern, and was determined to learn more about her before jumping to such quick conclusions in the future. She asked after the fur and he shook his head; he had no use for it, and with the summer months ahead of them he could see no real need to hold onto them. 

As he finished cleaning and stood to dig, he asked, "What is your family like?"

She looked up when Shashka joined them, and raised an eyebrow at her remark. When the girl mentioned the word 'murderer', she burst out laughing. "I didn't know you actually fell for that. Nobody else here seems to have caught the 'rumor'," she said, making quotation marks with her fingers in the air.

"You do know you can't trust everything you hear, right?"

She rolled her eyes at Shashka's dramatic description of William. "Hack-and-slasher of legend? And how many people has he supposedly killed? Who are they? If everyone knows he's a murderer, why isn't he in jail?"

It seemed like a dumb rumor to begin with, she had no idea how anyone ever fell for it. But she also wasn't surprised Shashka did.

Ignoring the girl's attempt to tease her, she looked back towards the pot Kitty had offered, scooped some water from the irrigation channel, and hung it on another stick above the fire she had made, telling herself her cheeks only felt hot because of her proximity to the flames.

"No offense, but you all owe me one."

Highwall Murderer? Shashka said it in such a way that made it clear she felt that everyone should know of this phenomenon. But Cassandra had never heard of such a thing before. Rarely did talk of murderers ever race around Lorham. Whether a sheep was loose in the Smith's corn fields again was the highlight of any gossiping conversation.

Cassandra glanced over to Leon, trying to picture him as the cold-hearted murderer that Shashka painted him to be, but struggled. She could only remember the boy who offered to help her with the burden of the wheelbarrow, the boy who knew how best to payback the kind man who had help them all. He largely quiet, but kind and unassuming.

Leon was nothing like those highwaymen.

But the sheer emotion in Shashka's voice didn't seem like a bald-faced lie. Cassandra turned back to look at the other girl, to explain this to her, but it was Saphira who spoke first, calling the rumor nothing more than that. A wild story floating in the wind.

What Saphira was saying made sense, but Cassandra didn't know enough about murderers and the laws that enforced them well enough to know if Saphira was completely correct or not. All she knew for certain right now was her own feelings about Leon. She'd keep a closer eye on him, but at the moment, her trust in him wouldn't change.

Saphira's last comment caused her to freeze from digging out a book from her bag. She slowly looked over to her, this silver-tongued heroic girl that she'd been admiring ever since she'd killed that bear single-handedly.

Because suddenly, her vision of Saphira shifted, and not for the better. Because, however true that statement might have been, it didn't seem a particularly heroic thing to say.

Cassandra finished taking out her favorite book–the first one her dad ever gave her–and pulled herself into a tight form, legs tucked underneath her. She held the book close, fingers holding it gingerly, lovingly. "Okay," she said, watching as the flamelight reflected off Saphira's face like orange glimmering dancers. "What is it you want?"

She'd been wrong about Saphira, to build up such a large picture for her. She'd thought Saphira had done all of these things in the fashion of a true hero. That she had the desire to help people who were unable to help themselves. To make a change for the better, because it was right and good, not for some sort of personal gain.

"Those men took the things most valuable to us as Star Catchers. We don't have anything else with us," though as she said so, she pulled her book even more closely to herself, as if Saphira were about to snatch it away. "We're all working together. As a team. Doesn't that nullify any payments necessary to each other? What's the point in working together if we're just going keep track of everything we do for one another and expect payment for that help at the end of the day?"

What did she want? The star. And she was beginning to wonder if she should not take it alone, if that was not what she deserved, after everything she had done. So far she'd saved everyone's asses and not got anything at all to show for it. Maybe she was winning them over, but what was the point? If she was going to be the ruler of this kingdom anyway...

What's the point in working together if we're just going keep track of everything we do for one another and expect payment for that help at the end of the day?

Oh, but that was exactly the point. That was the point of Saphira's whole life. Favors traded for favors. What she wanted to know was what was the point of helping other people for free? And yet... that was what she was doing. And she doubted Cassandra would ever understand her way of life. No one except someone who had lived it would understand that in Shadeslake, nothing was ever free.

"You misunderstand my point. I was pointing out to Shashka that Leon wasn't the only one who owes me, but I have not demanded payment from any of you, and likewise, I will not hold that as a way to keep him here either. Yes, I asked him to stay, but it's not like I can actually make him if he doesn't really want to. And neither can I make or want the rest of you to do anything, owing favors or no. I'm saying... he must have other reasons for staying."

At least, she didn't want to believe that was the only reason he was staying.

Shashka found herself such a combination of infuriated and affronted that for once in her life, her barbed tongue failed her. Owe her? She had to be kidding. Did she really think she alone had saved everyone? They'd all been in danger and every action each of them had taken led them all to the conclusion of events. The more she ruminated the angrier she became. She wasn't even listening to the conversation as it unfolded, she was too mired in disbelief and anger. "Does Charles owe you too?" She nearly spat out the words, a verbal slap she hoped would sting the arrogant priss to her core.

A glimpse of raw emotion flickered on Kitty's face, some blend of homesickness and abject fear, but she quickly pushed it away. She had thought of a smiling girl with laughter in her voice, the way she used to be before the illness ravaged her and stole that light. If she followed that memory, if she chased it through the times she remembered back home, she didn't know when she'd come back. She had to close that door and stay elsewhere. The blonde gave a small cough before speaking, focusing on helping bury what they didn't need so they could cook the rabbits.

"Nice. Normal. Big—farm. We raise sheep. I miss them," she explained, grabbing the carcasses and moving back towards the fire that now blaze. "You?"

He hadn't been able to see much of her around the hood, but he felt the slight change in her demeanor as the question left his mouth and hovered between them almost heavily as they buried the remains. Perhaps her family was why she left, then; to escape them, perhaps? He knew some people had it rough, and she was smaller than other people their age... He hoped that wasn't it, but felt a kinship with her in the assumption that family was why they were both out here. 

Her reply was short, if curt, and to the point, though the description was at odds with his thoughts. The words didn't sound false; maybe she did just really miss them and he had read the pause wrong entirely. Holding his own cleaned carcass, he followed her back towards the campsite and replied, "Smaller, or 'average' I guess." Three kids, a father, grandfather, aunts and uncles spread out - that was mostly average, in any case. 

The moment they cleared the grain grass and stepped into the circle of light emanating from the fire, it was like he had stepped into an emotionally-cold room. Expressions were all over the place - anger, mostly. He didn't know what he missed but it seemed to have been no small matter. He'd stand by Saphira, but knew from experience when to move mattered, so waited to see what was going on before he inadvertently hurt her case.

She'd misunderstood? Perhaps that was true, but Cassandra wasn't going to let it slide so easily. Still, it did lessen the blow from earlier, even if it still ached.

Perhaps it was mostly due to the fact that she wanted to believe the best in Saphira. Prior to this conversation, Saphira had shown nothing but good intentions for everyone in their group. Cassandra would have to keep a closer eye on her, before she could make a full judgment. After all, she did not know Saphira well enough to believe in her one way or the other. Not yet.

All thoughts halted as Shashka spoke her statement, the words piercing through her like shards of brittle ice. Shashka was looking towards Saphira as she said it, but that didn't matter.

Cassandra's eyes narrowed. How dare she use his name as if it were nothing more than a tool to jab at others, to get a reaction? Shashka didn't even know Charles, how could she use his name in such a way?

She stood up, book held tightly in her grasp. "That's unfair, and cruel," she said, glaring at Shashka. "Charles is not your toy to be flung around in a petty quarrel. Don't drag other people into it just to try and get the upper hand. If you two have things to sort out, then sort it out. This is not the right way to do things." True, she didn't exactly know the right way to do things, only what she'd read. Saphira would probably know, but Cassandra wasn't about to ask her right now. Instead, she'd rely on her books, as she'd always done.

And her books were very clear. Friends didn't treat other like this. "If you can't be civil with one another, then perhaps we should split up before this gets any worse."
