    Loft grimaced and pushed herself up from her side. She had to be sitting up in order to drink, and that in itself was a challenge right now. As she scooted around on the pallet, she hunched over, trying to keep herself from loosing her first meal. She didn't even attempt to start drinking the water yet, and it hung from her hand as she breathed. At least Providence's rhythm was quieting itself, and her ears were losing their ring.

    Pierce wiped the blood he'd spilled from the beast's fur and continued the procedure, managing to produce a usable, though not appealing, skinned pup.

    "So, what now?" He asked.

    Deeming that Loft had had enough water, Shaman reached for the cup and took it from her hands. "Now, take my hands and try to stand up. Move slowly."
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    "Well now w-" Blade started. Emerging from the darkness, Kukri and Pin sat by their sides.

    "Something's weird. What we fought was like nothing I've seen," said Pin. "We couldn't kill it, but once it left, we got the rats." She placed approximately a dozen rats into the middle of their little circle by the tails. Wiping some oddly reflective blood off her arms, Pin grabbed some of the meat and started skinning it. "I recommend we move quickly. I don't want to stay here. Plus we've had a very good hunt. Let's just skin these and then check the traps and go back." She looked over her shoulder again and skinned faster.

    Pierce took up a rat and got to work on it.

    "Did you see it at all?" He said. "Was it, like, a huge beast?"

    He fumbled with the precious few arrows he still had.

    "Did any of you see any of my arrows rolling around after that fight?" He asked as an afterthought.

    As the promise of water was slowly taken away by well intended hands, Loft reached out for the water, only to grab at the hands that wanted to- with good intention- rush her healing. Not really left with much of an option, she pushed with her shaky legs to get her rear off off the pallet, pulling at Shaman's much more sturdy grip to assist herself up.

    She couldn't help but think about what Shaman had just said to her. People that went other places... never got better? Were they like this, then? Shaky and dizzy and nauseous all at the same time, for ever and ever? She grit her teeth as she tensed onto her legs. If that was what he meant, then that wouldn't happen to her. She would get better. She would heal. But a small part of her, somewhere in her stomach, seemed to be trying to give her the idea that what Shaman had said... didn't mean what she wanted it to mean.

    At last, she was on her feet. She was still clinging on to Shaman's arms in order to stay up, and was still wobbly even then, but she was on her feet.

    Dinner on the first night of citizenship was always a rowdier affair than a regular dinner, but all in all, it was a good day. Dirk surveyed the people from his regular table. The citizens seemed none the wiser about his day’s activities and when he announced his surprise, he knew they would be happy. He did not believe the reports about Katonah and he would put these rumors to rest sending the routine trading caravan early. Waiting until second meal was almost done, Dirk stood up and raised his hands above his head. “My people! Today we have news! In a week’s time we will hold another name day ceremony!” He waited for the murmuring to die down, “For the hunters found a callow trembling in the tunnels many months ago and I have been educating him. This callow survived in the tunnels alone and are finally ready to join the hunters! Please be forgiving of his shortcomings, as he is new but do not be lax in our rules.” At this point the dining hall was in all out uproar. This was unheard of. No callow can survive the tunnels and even the most trained hunters don't last long alone in the tunnels. That's why the Clave exists! Dirk raised his hands for silence again, but this time to no effect.

    Pierce spent a good long moment shouting unintelligible noises of disbelief, because he was full of disbelief, which caused him to shout noises which were unintelligible.

    After that was over, he considered what Dirk had said. The mystery callow would be joining the hunters! Clearly that meant Pierce would have a chance to show him the ropes! Maybe they'd even become friends like Pierce had with the older hunters!

    This possibility was so exciting to him that, just as he was sitting down, he jumped to his feet and let out a few more unintelligible shouts.

    As soon as the noise ramped up in the Dining Hall, Loft lost her appetite. She had been moved there, and was trying to nurse her portion of food, but as the people got louder and louder, her headache got stronger and stronger. She new she shouldn't skip a meal, but she just couldn't be forced to stomach anything in her current state. She felt like she was going to throw up.

    Though she wanted to know more about this miraculous callow, she forced herself to wade through the other people (it wasn't that hard, as she had been situated extremely close to the exit) and walk back to her room. She had many questions, and believe you in her, she was going to ask all of them whenever she could put her thoughts to word
