Malata looked about, and saw multiple guards running towards the building. They wouldn't find anything in the room, not after what she had done, but that wasn't her primary concern. Extending her mirage to the girl, she spread her wings again. "This way, little one. We have quite a ways to go, and not long to go in." She turned and ran to the edge of the building, using her wings to catch a soft breeze, bolstering her speed.Thunder
Malata kept looking behind her, noting with concern the foxgirl's condition. Must remember to ask her name.It was obvious that she was starving, and Malata wondered how long it had been since she had last eaten, or how far she had traveled in that state. Can't think about that right now. This place is too dangerous for her. If she is found, they will rip her apart on the spot.-ThunderCrash
It didn't take them long to reach the wall of the city. She had been expecting guards, and she quickly made alterations to their thoughts so that they wouldn't notice anything strange. She paused between two crenelations, waiting for the girl to catch up. Now, how to get her down.
I called the rest of the Tosk out from the forest, a couple of Beastmen following them out. "The human is gone. Did you glean any information?" I look at one of the Beastmen, the only one who could practice magic inside our party. "Execution- they have a lot of prisoners." I spat on the ground. "Take us to the city walls, if you could. We have a score to settle."
Malata looked at the girl anxiously. It was clear that she couldn't go much farther without food. Glancing around, she noticed a loaf of bread next to a soldier. Creeping over, she lightly extended her shimmer shield over it and took it. The soldier didn't even bat an eye. She retreated back to the foxgirl. "Here. Eat quickly, this will be the only thing you'll get until we reach the forest. I will be back soon." Lightly vaulting over the edge of the wall, she beat her wings as she flew skyward. Anxiously hovering, she looked about from her vantage point. The forest was not too far, likely less than a day's walk from the city. She was worried that the girl wouldn't make it, but she had no choice. She looked down, and fear gripped her chest. Many creatures had materialized outside the walls, and the distant look that her height provided identified them as Tosk, one of the lizard-like clans of the Beastmen. With the mind-bending that she had applied to the human guards, they wouldn't notice the warriors until they were killed. And the foxgirl was right in the middle of them.My eyes gleamed with hunger and with a few ferocious bites the loaf was devoured but I was still weak. The sun was starting to beat harder against me as the toll from not drinking water was getting worse. "I'm starting to feel worse now...I think I'm going to be sick."
Swallowing, she ran options through her mind. Her first priority would be to get the girl to safety. The Tosk probably wouldn't harm her, but at the same time she couldn't just let them massacre the guards.
She beat her wings anxiously. She didn't know what to do.
I squinted, looking at the distance at a hovering black speck. My predatory vision honed in on the sight, revealing a Syl'tar and, slightly below her, a fox-like beastwoman. Good- The Syl'tar had been the third race to discover us, and we had maintained decent relations despite their alliance with the humans. Motioning to Ascelpius, she notched an arrow and fired it at the city wall, the draw of the twelve foot tall Tosk sending the arrow into the mortar. A rope trailed from the wall to our position. If they weren't too slow they would figure out what we were doing. I motioned to Ascelpius again and she nocked another arrow, this time aiming it at the oblivious guards.
