OOCI'm going to start posting every other day as long as at least one of you has replied, that way we can hopefully wrap this up by the end of the season. Also, perhaps within the next few posts?

"Hello Gabriella," Aello said, greeting the newcomer with a slight nod of her head. "Welcome to the lovely forests on the outskirts of Ravok, and of course, the little fireside chat we all seem to be having here" Aello added, gesturing towards Robert with her eyes. "Just make yourself comfortable beneath the cover of the barren tree branches, and the night sky, warm yourself by the side of the fire..." at this point in time, Aello was growing so tired from both her magic use, and the time of day that she was growing loopy. She was starting to ramble.

"It is so nice this time of year. Would be a real shame if one didn't get out and about an missed such a sight as the stars, the feel of the winter wind across one's flesh. How it nips at their nose, and makes it red as a radish," Aello said. "Sometimes... you get so cold you can't even feel your toes. Speaking of which, I can't quite feel mine anymore," Aello laughed as she looked up at the stars.

After a few moments Aello pointed to one of the constellations, and said, "now doesn't that look like a horse. You know, when they're running... it looks like it's running through the night sky," and with that, she dropped her hand into her lap. Her eyes were growing heavy again. She didn't think she'd last much longer before passing out.

"Anybody sleepy? Because I think it's my bedtime," she said, stifling a yawn.

Robert was basically ignoring the newcomer. He was not rude about it, but he seen no need in being polite. Because from past experiences he figure the newest addition wouldn’t last the entire night in Aello’s presence. She could be a prickly one, and seemed easy to get on her bad side.

Robert himself was becoming very heavy eyed and tired himself. It had been a long day for him. And now that he found a comfortable place to rest, he was in danger of falling asleep without warning. He decided he didn’t mind if he passed out first, he seen no danger in the eyes of his two companions. “I shall agree with you Aello. This night has lingered for to long, I myself wish to be asleep before this hours end preferably. A good nights rest is important, you never know what tomorrow brings.” He shared a look with the new comer. Atleast showing her he was not rude, just exhausted.

Robert reached for his belongings laying a few feet from him. He slid them closer to his body while Aello was beginning to ramble on about seeing the stars. His eyelids were feeling extremely heavy. He turned from the firelight. The dancing flames would keep his eyes fixed and from finding the sleep he needed. It would not be long before he dozed off now.

Being around the tired aura that circled around them, her eyes became heavy. She put her bowl and tool back into the bag and pushed them to the side. Sighing, she pushed Apollo off of her and slid down and used him as a pillow and took off her wool cape and used it as a blanket. Staring at the small sparks that flew up from the fire, she yawned lightly and looked up to the stars. She watched as a shooting star shot by and she remembered her and her father use to watch the stars together on cool nights. A slight tear came to her eye and slid down her cheek but she wiped it off and closed her eyes and slowly drifted off to sleep.

Good thread, guys! It was a shame to see one of you go, but I was happy to see the rest of you wrap it up quite well. Aello makes for an interesting conversational partner, to say the least. ;)
