The White Stag lowers its head to you and sniffs. As if it knows you, it looks at the wound on your torso and laps at the blood then licks the gash.

Tess watched slightly disturbed, as far as she knew stags didn't act like this. How can it know me? Was it spirit?

"what do you want stag?"

It best talk human to me because I don't know what sprit speak.. She mused to herself.

The stag cocks it's head and then lowers its muzzle to touch your forehead,
'Now child of Uktena, can you hear me?'

The majestic Stag steps back a pace and it's scent fills your nose, something of it reminds you of Caleb.

Tess smiled at the stag her mind flooded with the memories associated with Caleb, the moors, wild places drink and smokes, she smiled at the memory her mind regretted the way they had parted, not for the first time she had the thought she wanted to see Mitch dead.

I can hear you now great stag, why would you speak to me? I am honoured that you would, but I can do nothing for you though I will do whatever I can should you ask anything of me.

It watches you closely for awhile.

'All hope is not lost yet, your friends are trying to find you as we speak.'

He lowers his head and eats a tuft of grass,

'Remind my lost sons what they once where!'

Tess smiled at the stag.

I can do that great stag it will be as you ask.

The smile didn't fade she didn't know much about spirits but the arrival of the totem spirit animal of Calebs tribe, telling her to have hope couldn't mean anything less than Caleb was alive and coming for her.

She was going to get out of this alive back to her pack and she wasn't going to give up, she just had to hold the line until they showed up. Tess rested her head back against the dead boar she watched the stag as it ate.

As Tess rested she could feel her eyes grow heavy, the past few weeks had taken their toll on her. She was tired and weary, but bolstered by the message from Stag.

Then she could see the dark shadowy figure of a lanky Garou dancing and capering around Stag. It's eyes glowing green and a green smoke trailing from them as he does, his green spiral tattoos appear to be smoking just like his eyes.

'Go maith go bhfuil sé ar fad i mo ghrog dom jolly jolly grog
gach beoir agus tobac dom
Bhuel chaith mé gach stáin orm ar ghin na n-óg
ar fud na farraige iarthar beidh mé ag casadh.

Bhuel tá sé ar mo thaobh buataisí dom noggin buataisí
imithe beoir agus tobac orm
go maith go bhfuil na sála caite
agus bitear ar na toesanna faoi
agus tá an t-aonad ag féachaint le haghaidh aimsir níos fearr.

Is maith liomsa léine noggin noggin domsa
gach beoir agus tobac dom
Is maith an collar atá caite
agus na sleeves tá siad go léir torn
tá an t-eireaball ag féachaint amach ar aimsir níos fearr.

Go maith go bhfuil sé ar fad i mo ghrog dom jolly jolly grog
gach beoir agus tobac dom
Bhuel chaith mé gach stáin orm ar ghin na n-óg
ar fud na farraige iarthar beidh mé ag casadh.'

The spindly armed Garou dances over to you and takes both your hands and lifts you to your feet, he begins to spin you around in a wide circle around the Stag as he sings more of the same old Irish song. Smiling and laughing as he does.

'Dis here is how we used to spend de evenings on de camp site in the shadow of de mountain. Twas grand Tessy, i wish ye coulda seen it!'

Tess rested her eyes and her soul as the as the song began she watched mesmerised as Tommy danced and sang his strange body moving and leaping as he sang.

She had no idea what song was sung or what it meant, but she could see it ment something to Tommy he seemed to glow.

No Tommy was glowing! His eyes were smoking.. Then she was up pulled to her feet spinning spinning her side hurt, or did it? She was sure she could see shadows dancing in the trees at the edges of her vision.

"I'd love to have seen that Tommy" she said genuinely.

Tommy spins you through the almost hypnotic motion of a seemingly chaotic dance. Then as suddenly as it began, it ended.

He then gets on his knees before the stag and lays out his arms and he mutters something in Irish that you can't make out, nor do you think you could understand it.

The Stag lowers its head to Tommy and whispers something. The fades away like wisps of smoke on the wind.

Tess sitting breathing hard her body was sore her mind taking in the interaction between Tommy and stag, then stag disappeared into smoke, Tommys body language reminds her of a type of worship or an act of total humble placating apology, she doesn't think long on it.

Tess wonders why her side wasn't hurting and looked down in awe at the new scar that was so recently a ragged bleeding wound.

She leaned against the boar glad that they had killed such a beast, there was good eating there. Renewed hope fluttering into her heart Caleb and Col were alive, alive and coming to get her, she just had to survive until they got here.

The world seemed to shift and everything seemed as it should in this realm again. Even with Stag gone Black Tommy still lay as if atoning for his past sins.

He shook and quietly sobbed on the ground.

Tess wasn't sure what she should do, watching Tommy laying sobbing was an uncomfortable thing, he must have done something he regretted deeply.

Slowly she moved to beside him she gently placed a hand on his shoulder, she didn't have any words to say she didn't know what she could say to make anything better for him.

Instead she used her ability to heal his physical wounds he had received from fighting the boar. *mothers touch*

Black Tommy flinches slightly at your touch, then the warm caress of your gift granted by Bear flows through him and his softens.

The sobbing calms and changes from utter anguish to the tears and sobbing a child cries when they comforted by their mother.

Tess left her hand on Tommy Long after the gift had gone through him, she left her physical connection to him there as he cried, part of her wondered what in Gaias name he had done that caused him so much distress. She waited until the sobbing ebbs to weeping, then the weeping fell away to the occasional sobs and deep breathing as his body obviously wracked by grief shuddered, eventually she thought he was calm enough she could speak to him.

"Easy there Tommy, it's OK now." she spoke softly hoping he didn't rage out garou were unpredictable things at best.

A few more sobs shuddered his body then they stopped.

For a moment his back rose and fell as he breathed deep, then he turned his tear streaked face up to you and smiled.

'Tank ye Tessy, yer a good girl. No wonder are Caleb likes ye so!'

He slowly stands and groans a little as he stretches,

'Sorry 'bout all dat! Feckin' spirits get te better of ye sometimes!' he laughs.

Tess smiled at Tommy. He stood up and she rose with him.

"Calebs coming to get me Tommy, stag told me so, I just have to hold on and be ready for it."

She smiled warmly knowing that Caleb was alive and looking for her.
She looked back at the boar then to Tommy.

"you think we should get that back to the lodge? Some good eating on it! Not a bad kill for a Ragabash and a Theurge ehh"

Black Tommy looks down at the fallen Boar and nods.

'It certainly is Tessy, if I didn't know better I'd say the Get is still strong in ye!'

Using his long arms he lifts the boar and nods at it,

'Common den Tessy, give an aul'Garou a hand, would ye?'

on Wed 29 Nov 2017 @ 4:10 AM (PBW Time)

Tess looked at Tommy surprised clearly by his words.

"you know I'm not a Get?"

her words half whispered as she helped with the weight of the boar falling into step with him as he walked.
