Sammuroth just stood there in a daze as Shinaria walked off, the "other" laughed at him, " Looks like you put your foot in you mouth," the druid growled, shut up, it's just my nature, to worry for others, not that you would understand that, you damned demon. Still the druid felt the need to apologize, and what was with everyone thinking he and Lori were mates, they were close yes, but as father and daughter, for that is how he considered her. He caught up to Shinaria as she was kneeling over someone, the druid could smell the scent of worgen, and based on his apparel he had to assume this was the worgen priest from earlier. "What happened to him, could his reverting to human form, cause this, or perhaps he is worn out, he has been spending a lot of time healing everyone's wounds." Mentioning injuries caused the druid to remember his own, and he winced, I guess I got clipped harder than I thought, he blocked out the pain hoping Shinaria didn't notice.
After she finished with worgen, Sam spoke up, not looking at her, to keep himself from stuttering, "Look Shinaria I am sorry, I know you are not weak, and don't need protecting. It's just how I am, if I had a choice between putting myself or others in danger I would choose myself. I deserved the harsh treatment, I guess my age has been having an effect on me, seeing so many young ones die while I live, takes a toll. I know that whatever is happening here will endanger Lori if it spreads, it will also endanger your own family, that is reason enough for you to be here. I am sorry if I come off as speaking to you like a child, it's a bad habit of my long lived life, when you have lived for over ten thousand years you tend to think everyone is a child. Anyway, my point is it was not my intention to come off that way, I just don't want to see anymore young people die."
His apology finished he moved on to another, less dire subject, " By the way, why is it that everyone thinks Lori and I are mates, not that age is a factor for Night Elves, but she is nine millenia my junior, I am going to set the record straight, Lori is like my daughter. I could never look at her in any other way, perhaps we act too close, and that is why people get confused, anyway, Lori is not my mate. Besides I doubt anyone would want to be my mate while I am stuck in this form, of course my stuttering problem doesn't help either," the druid smiled at his own self derision. "If you don't mind may stay here and keep watch over the druid with you, he worked hard during the battle, I want to make sure he is alright," Sammuroth winced again, fromthe pain in his ribs, hehe, it seems to be getting worse.
