Twang… Twang…. Twang….

Her bowstring would ring out in the area after she was able to free her arrows. One landing in the other shoulder of the archer, another in the thigh of the one who had threatened Magnus and the final one into the back of the woman on top of him currently. Her breathing was shaky as she reached for another arrow and and turned to the other two again. Her arrow rattled against her bow as she twisted between the two.

She didn’t focus long after the arrow pierced the woman's back to really know what other results could have occurred before she secured the other two. She waited for just a moment before she calls out to her friend, her voice trembling gently.

“M-Magnus?”

She knew she had made a mistake earlier, one that could have been more costly than she had imagined. Scolding herself internally, she took a slow breath to calm herself. The rattling sound from her bow stopped, her throat clearing as she spread her legs out in a more appropriate stance to pivot between the two others, Magnus and the spear woman over her right shoulder.

The leader on top of him let out a soft gasp of air when she fell limp against him, Magnus narrowly managing to push her arms aside so the dagger didn't bury itself in his chest. Trapped under the woman and slightly winded, Magnus remained motionless, breathing heavily until he heard Anniyah speak him name. After a deep breath, he heaved the body of the leader off him and rolling away from underneath her. As he rose to his feet, he lifted the weapon he had disarmed from the leader and looked over at Anniyah. "Thank you" he muttered, turning back to the remaining two bandits. The archer rested against the tree, holding her shoulder in pain but not removing the arrow Anniyah shot at her for fear of making things worse. The spearwoman remained unconscious, meaning the skirmish was more or less over.

Moving away from his friend and towards the archer, he watched her hands come up and begin to stammer something about mercy but Magnus simply sheathed his blade before rushing forward. Pinning her against the tree, Magnus ripped the arrow out, causing the bandit to let out a yelp of pain, before slamming his hand against the wound, his sleeves rolled up into a ball. Lifting his leg, he recovered his dagger from his boot and cut off his sleeve, before pressing her hand against the sleeve against the wound, now soaked with blood. "Hold" he ordered, before heading over to his nearby pack that had some contents spilled across the ground. Putting them back in, he took out a roll of gauze and cut off a strip, moving back to the injured archer and beginning to wrap it around, pinning the ball of clothing to the wound.

"Your name?" Magnus asked her, not lifting his eyes to look at her
"F-Farris"
"Farris...today is your lucky day it seems" Magnus continued, tighting the gauze to finish off "Take your time, then get your friend home. If we meet again, we won't be a merciful. Get out of this life, try another trade"

Moving away from the bewildered Farris, Magnus recovered his things before moving back towards Anniyah. "Thank you, again. You saved my life" he said earnestly, giving her a warm smile before winking "Guess that makes you a hero now, after saying no one from the village ever amounted to anything". As he waited for her to gather her own things, he turned to see the archer fall beside her friend, trying to stir her away from Magnus strike. Calling over to her, he said "Farris! One more thing, just down the path?". His call seemed to startle the young woman, who seemed shaken after what the just went though. She nodded, and he waved his thanks.

Anniyah heard his 'thank you' when he rose and released a breath she hadn't realized she had been holding. Her wide eyes fell to the archer as she watched Magnus rush upon her quickly. The sound of the arrow being pulled free, though sounded the same as removing arrows from the animals she hunted, still caused an unnerving feeling to rise in her stomach as it was followed by the cry of the bandit. Still she stayed with her bow at the ready.

Part of her wondered where her companion was going in the next few moments as he reached for the dagger. Not that she would nor could disagree if he wanted to gain his restitution with more blood. They did after all try to kill him. But as he took the more noble path in her mind, a small smile would flutter across her face.

Her bow holding steady as she takes in his stern words and firm actions to assist in the stopping of the bandits blood flow, she found herself ever more intrigued by her friend. Even the parting wisdom he offered seemed to inspire the dark hearted foe, Farris.

Anniyah's breath caught as he rose with his belongings and addressed her now. Lowering her bow to her side, a blush would crawl across her face before she looked shyly away. Her rose colored bottom lip found itself caught between her teeth before she bent down to pick up her own bag and sling it over her shoulder. Taking a few steps, she glances back as Magnus called for Farris again.

She turned back to take continue down the path, bow in one hand and the arrow in her other. Anniyah would cast her eyes towards Magnus now and then as she walked beside him now, finding this to be a suitable pace and position. A small chuckle would escape her before she would nudge Magnus softly with her arm.

"Now we are going to have to get you a new shirt...and did you see how big her eyes were? Like big as ceremonial dinner plates I swear!"

Her own eyes would turn to him now, her fathers teachings come to the forefront of her mind. She looked him.over as casually as she could, looking for any injuries he may have, though, she doubted it would be anything serious. Shaking her head, she raises a hand to her temple, a single digit scratching it gently.

"I could really use that drink now..."

Magnus stumbled to the side slightly off the path, when she nudged, hoping back beside her in a few seconds when she started to talk. She seemed excitable, thrilled even to have done what they just had. True, the girl had looked terrified, but Anniyah had just buried an arrow in her shoulder and she was outnumbered. Still, he couldn't bring himself to kill her. While the leader had decided to take it upon herself to kill him, Farris had just kept watch over events and hadn't harmed them. The less blood on his hands the better, he just hoped the woman took the advice to heart and got out of the business. The mention of the drink did bring Magnus back from his thoughts. The day was growing old, while he had hoped to arrive there just after sundown it would now be much later that they would be walking in darkness. "Well you beat pick up the pace, the drinks are on me tonight" Magnus said, giving her a light nudge in return before pointing down in front of them. Just at a bend in the path, another one branched off in a different direction. Breaking into a light jog, he made his way down the new path, taunting her to follow him.

They walked for hours, eventually having to guess what way the path twisted and turned in darkness, but finally they emerged from the woods. The forest path widened to form a road, dipping down a hill before flattening out into rolling fields. The moon bright above them cast light over the grass and crops that moved in the breeze. Just a while down the road at the height of a small hill, was a small wooden building, made up of a smaller entrance and then a larger building, with warm light shining out through. With their day almost over, Magnus forced himself forward for one last push. He was physically tired, perhaps jogging a short while to save time wasn't quite worth it, might have even lost them time in the long run. When they finally reached the inn, Magnus pushed the door open and they were immediately hit by the warm glow of the fireplace. The small entrance area had a small bar with several kegs of mead, ale and beer, and darted around the room was several tables for the patrons. It was fairly busy, several tables were filled with travellers enjoying their own respite and building up their tab. Making his way over to the bar, Magnus leapt against it.

"Evening. Two rooms please" Magnus said, holding up two fingers to the innskeeper. Washing a mug, he made his way over to speak to him. "There's two rooms available for the night, one in the building and one behind in the barn loft. Who wants what?". Turning to look at Anniyah, Magnus spoke up "I'll take the loft, and two meads please". Sliding across the gold, more or less draining his funds that he left with, he rested against the bar sideways to talk to Anniyah "Well that's it sorted now, we're even" he said, settling down into a bar stool while he waited for his drinks.

Anniyah chuckled as she watched him begin to jog off and she followed behind him in suit. She kept her eyes on where he was when she wasn’t glancing side to side to be certain this time of any other threats coming out of the wood work. The lesson had been learned quickly this time. Slowing to a walk now and then, she stopped for a moment to stare at the building for a moment, a moment of hesitation in her heart before she shakes her head and clears it from her. Lacing her bow over her shoulder, she slides the arrow back in her quiver before sprinting after Magnus.

Pushing her hair back over her shoulder, she looked up at Magnus as she walked into the Inn, her eyes taking in everything before them, particularly the fireplace itself. She followed Magnus to the bar and took up a stool quickly. She couldn’t help but observe the travelers and their mannerisms before focusing back to Magnus’ answer to the room situation and the order for mead. She seemed to perk up a bit at the mention of the sweet beverage, a smile playing on her lips until she peers up at him as he sits.

“Well…thats only until the next time…It will be simply a game of back and forth, yes?” She pulled her bag off her shoulder and set it, the quiver to be by her feet and the bow to rest against the bar. She began to look around at the setting they had placed themselves in. The nervousness fluttered deep within her chest but being here with Magnus seemed to calm her nerves now. Her fingers move to untie the end of her braid and shook her hair out and pushed it behind her back gently, the chocolate locks tumbling in curls now.

“Besides…You still need a proper shirt..”
