    Must bar the windows and the doors To keep me safe, to keep me warm; Noah

    Jakub had watched Tephra rebuild after the war. Flowers and saplings sprang through the solid molten earth reaching towards the deep blue skies. Spring was upon them, a rebirth of tranquility after the harshness of winter. Jakub shifted his gaze from the sky the the land in front of him. He stretched his legs, neck, and back pulling the familiar stiffness from his muscles. His new scars on his back and wither pulling tight as his hind leg extends one last time. Today is the day, he would head to the mountains and petition Beqanna for a strength that would not fail him. He did not want to leave the innocent defenseless every again, he will be their guardian.

    Jakub took off across Tephra, and passed through the heavily canopied forest of Sylva. Anger played with the nerves that scattered through his oblong scar that patterned his backside. He knew Sylva wasn't Loess but a territory wasn't much better on his list. Though the fur was beginning to grow again over his scar from Wolfbane, the burns on his back, underbelly, and legs were just beginning to fade to a dull pink. His wounds were as fresh as the memories that darted through his conscious uninvited.

    The forest began to thin and give way as Jakub stepped into a scenery that was breath taking. He had to stop for a moment to catch his breath as the newly sprouting flora encased his senses. He continued on his way, the green grass tickling his fetlocks as he walked. He had not been to these parts of Beqanna yet, his welcoming had quickly moved to Tephra, under Magnus and then Leliana shortly after, giving way to war. 

    This field took Jakub back to his childhood. This was the closest thing he had found yet to his life before Beqanna. A smile pulled at his mouth, Jakub had not felt young in many months but right now with him seeming to be very alone, he kicked up his hind legs and pranced through the flowers as though he was no more than a yearling. Splashing into a cool, clear stream Jakub stopped as water hung from his silky, burn patched coat. "The mountain can wait," he said out loud closing his eyes and soaking up the mild spring sun standing knee deep in the refreshing water."This is what I need right now"

    Noah - opening up for a meeting <3
    Tephra inhabitant (Alpha)

    that's all there is

    She’d retreated back to her fields and streams after what she witnessed in Loess – conflicted, afraid, she can’t bear to stay in Loess to finish her visit with Wolfbane and Lepis, but nor can she bear to seek out Leliana, despite that their visit had been cut short as well. Three of the maybe five friends she can claim to her name, and they are arrayed on opposite sides of a bitter feud – what are the chances?

    Noah finds comfort in her home. She wanders along the fields, encouraging the growth of riotous flowers in their multicolored glories during the day, and the pastel night-blooming flowers when the world is lit only by the silver moon overhead. She’s mostly alone and quietly content with it, and is almost startled by the sound of someone else splashing along the creek bed. Shaken from her dream-like reverie, she crosses the field with the plants she trods upon growing back still stronger in her wake, until she sets green eyes upon the stallion in the stream.

    He’s tall, taller than Noah already even though he doesn’t look to have reached his full growth (he’s rangy with youth, but not in an unpleasant way). Dark, a deep black, and clearly injured. Or healing, formerly injured. She’s not sure. He speaks, though she is quite sure he doesn’t know she is watching, of the mountain. Noah shivers, remember what happened when she answered the call to go to the mountain, but she also knows there are good things there. Hoping not to startle him too badly, the little mare creeps forward, trying to lift her whisper-soft voice over the babble of the moving water.



    Jakub sorry for the wait!

    Jakub frolicked for a minute finding relief in the cool water and the idea of simpler times. Before he had responsibilities - not that he minded them. His head tilted towards the sky and the warm spring sun. Clouds littered the sky, and he watched as a flock of birds flew in formation searching for their homes they had traded out when winter had approached.

    A broad smile creeped across his face because even though his home was in the.process of rebuilding, he did in fact have one and that in itself was a blessing. His ears swiveled and stopped as he was about to exit the creek, a hoof poised gently above the slow moving water. Hello Jakub turned his head, his smile still clung to his face making him look younger, and full of youth - not that he was old, though he felt it on the inside.

    A strawberry colored mare with a quiet voice stood watching him. She reminded Jakub of the strawberry patches his mother and he used to enjoy together on a lazy summer day. Hello he said his voice sounding deeper from the passing months, a little rough and charming in equal parts. He turned towards the mare and prodded out of the water. His hide still glistened with droplets and the pink of his healing scars stood out brightly against the blackness that was him.

    I didn't mean to intrude. I'm Jakub, beta in Tephra. he added dipping his head softly in greeting.
