While Zelinda watched carefully, she would see subtle streaks of movement on all sides of her as she progressed deeper into the forest. Something larger than animals - like humanoid figures stalking around in between the trees, following winding trails cut in the shadows and disappearing swiftly.

The ground underneath her feet was blackened and charred, as if the swamp was singed deeply by fire. She would have to watch carefully for roots protruding from the ground and thin, skeletal vines draped from the branches so she wouldn't trip or get tangled up in the darkness.

Meanwhile, the Acolyte watched the man and his horse as they neared the edge of the lake. He looked back at Armondo and Lilith.

"Is he a part of your group?"

Armando turned to look at the new comer "Uhhh he is not."

Lilith looked at the man then looked back and said sternly,
"I usually travel alone or with my own kind."

:: the man finishes filling his canteens and begins to re sling them over the horse that he pats a few times before saying somthing else quietly to him, and then the horse moves over to the water and starts drinking as the man looks around and nods alittle at the nearest person and in a calm personable voice:: Any where round her got some shelter?

"I'm sorry. Outsiders are not allowed within the forest."

The Acolyte glanced around at the others.

"But, it seems like we have much to discuss while we are all here..."

"With limited resources in the Wastelands I cannot provide any shelter for strangers whom I have no connection to," Lilith said coldly.

The Acolyte gave no immediate response, as if he was contemplating what the stranger said.

"I see. But that does not mean that outsiders are...allowed in the forest."

He seemed a bit interested in the other man and took a moment longer to examine him.

"Where do you come from? Why are you seeking shelter here?"

I come from :: takes a moment to look up at the suns positions:: north west from here, not sure what it was called I was brought there by the military during the cataclysm, didnt leave till they were finished with me and everything went to hell in a hand basket, and I'm just looking for someplace to put up for a few days. Me and Tank have been traveling just trying to find anything really. We've seen some bands of survivors in the wastes and the deserts and ruins and such::points at the tanker trucks:: havent seen anyone thats got those beasts up and running though

Armando nodded "Yea we will live in a city in the desert so to keep our farms up and running and get enough water to drink we needed a better way to transport it all back and forth. So we got these up and kicking with of couple of the forgers back home."

Zelinda watched Cole, stopping from walking. She waited until he passed, and continued on. She picked her way carefully through the forest, making sure to touch the least amount possible, "Funny.. I don't remember this.." she muttered.

As Zelinda went deeper into the forest, it may feel more and more eerie to her. She would see some rough trails that seemed easier to walk than it would be to cut through the brush. The trails converged and led into the heart of the forest - if Zelinda decided to turn back towards the lake, now might be her last chance.

Zelinda paused, glancing at the trails, "Definitely don't remember these..."

She turned, but still waited, curiosity seeming to get the better of her. After all it was her job to know what was going on around the lake. She continued on.

She may notice some glyphs etched onto the trees and symbols carved into the crumbling, ancient bark near the trails. If she would look closely, she may notice a faint, silvery glow emanating from them. They looked almost like letters, or seals, or some type of foreign design that Zelinda wouldn't recognize.

A few feet in front of her, directly on the trail, there was a glint in the distance as if some metal object had caught a ray of sunlight for a second before drifting off into the shadows again.

Zelinda studied the glyphs for a few moments, and then continued on slowly. She checked her rifle briefly. to make sure it was ready to use.

Zelinda wouldn't be able to make any sense out of the glyphs. They were all different, and they seemed like mindless designs scrawled into the trees.

As she came closer to the object in the middle of the road, she may recognize the shape of a human figure standing in her path.

Zelinda stopped and immediatly raised her rifle to aim it at the person, "Who goes there?"

The metal object glinted again, towards the side of the figure. The shadows falling over the figure made it nearly impossible to tell what it was...until it moved.

All that Zelinda would be able to see was the twisted, curved blade as the shadow standing in front of her slowly began to twirl it. Whoever it was stood perfectly still, as if it was challenging her. A quiet wind rustled through the woods.

"Sir... I'm sure that none of that is required. Please tell me whom you are and what your buisiness is in these woods."

Zelinda popped a small tab on the side of her rifle and it began to glow a brighter green. She held stock still keeping her rifle trained on the person infront of her.

The light on her rifle would barely illuminate the scene in front of her.

The figure was almost identical to the one that she had seen by the lake - a black cloak covered its entire body, and its eyes glowed in the darkness.

Another pair of eyes followed Zelinda through the darkness and approached from the shadows. And then another. And another...

A voice from the figure in front of Zelinda hissed menacingly. "Go back."

Zelinda glanced around wearily, not moving for the moment. "Who are you? What are you doing here?"

She kept her rifle trained on the figure in front of her, but slowly widened her stance.

The figure went silent, as if the only words that it cared to speak were already spoken. It took a single, decisive step towards Zelinda and the ground crunched under its footsteps.

Zelinda flicked another tab on the rifle and it started to grow brighter still - illuminating a small circle around her.

"Don't take one step closer, I'm not afraid to shoot. Just back away."
