Yeah, I bet it’s pretty fun, too. I just meant you must be exhausted by the end of the day.
Still… kids are great, aren’t they? Half the time the stuff that comes out of their mouths is frickin’ hilarious.
That is very true.
-laughs- they do say some cute things. Most of the time when I have them they’re playing Pirates and Lost Boys. You’d be surprised the phrases they come up with.
My nanny from when I was a little girl.
No, no, no, no.. -he plops down in the floor- no.
French, you’re being a big baby. Now come on! -chuckles and pulled on his arm- If there’s really a ghost in there, you really going to let your girl go in there alone?
Trust me, yer better off without parents. They don’ do shit fer ya.
Edward heard the familiar voice and turned instantly to see who it was. When he saw Eilonwy, his face lit up with glee, and even Destiny seemed happy to see her. “Eilonwy!” He cried out cheerfully, rushing through the mud to her horse. “It had been far too long! I am glad to see a familiar face out here in this strange land!”
Now Edward was really certain that he was lost, he couldn’t remember where Eilonwy said she lived, but he was certain it wasn’t where he was going. He gave up on the map and shoved it into Destiny’s saddlebags, petting her gently as they stood next to Eilonwy’s horse in the rain.
She smiled, “Its wonderful to see you too, old friend.” she said, her horse trotting back and forth, wanting to get out of the rain, “Follow me. You can stay with Dalben and I until this rain stops.” then, with a flick of the reins, she and her mare took off down the muddy pathway
Before long they came upon a little cabin on a farm, Coll came out to greet them and take the horses as they came to a stop. The older, bald man helped the princess from her horse, “Princess, you know not to be in the rain.” he said, offering his hand to Edward to take the Destiny’s reins and lead them into the stables, “Go inside and warm up.” he said and with that, Eilonwy gestured for Ed to follow her as they went inside.
Edward furrowed his brow as he stared at the rain-soaked map in frustration. He flipped the soggy thing around once more, staring down at it intensely wondering if he was even looking at it the right way around. He’d figured that traveling to this new Kingdom would be simple, and he could travel most of the way there on instinct. However, despite his optimism Edward was nowhere near his destination, and daylight was fading, fast. Underneath him Destiny huffed at him, shaking her mane around in the rain, she seemed just as frustrated as he was. His advisers had insisted on travelling with him, knowing he would just charge on ahead without even consulting the map, but Edward had refused. Advisers traveled far too slowly, and would make boring riding companions. Edward was beginning to doubt this judgement, as he slowly began to lose hope of finding his way.
Eilonwy rode quickly on her own horse towards Caer Dalben from town. Rain was pouring down and the last thing she wanted was to be in the rain, knowing Dalben wouldn’t be happy about her getting sick again.
Her dark brown mare hurried quickly down the road before she spotted a familiar figure. As she got closer, she realized who it was and the horse slid in the mud to a stop, “Edward?” she asked, looking at him from beneath the hood of her cloak, “What in the world are you doing out here in the rain?” she asked.
I’ll probably redo this one later…
Her elder hesitated, knowing all too well that many could not be trusted. Fujimoto’s time with sailors, captains, fishermen only added on to his unwavering apprehension, aside from who Ponyo was making friends with. Even then, he harbored small resentment for them.
He took the pause to observe her, noting her features were that of a young woman. He associated it with Lisa, and was reminded of her kindness even after she’d called him names. His lips tightened, but he succumbed, putting aside his stubbornness and straightening his posture. “…My name is Fujimoto, caretaker of the seas. I have the task of cleansing the ocean, and making sure it, or anyone in it, is in danger.” Despite the fact some are deserving of it. He glanced back at her, the feeling of magic she gave off beginning to nag at him again. “…And you? What is your name?”
The girl thought on his name for a moment, it sounded familiar before she smiled a bit, “I remember learning a little about though. Though it wasn’t much more then a chapter in a book of ocean lore. You tend to keep to yourself a bit, don’t you?” she asked giving a small chuckle, “But either way it is an honor to meet you.”
Then she gave a small curtsy to him, “I am Princess Eilonwy of the fallen Kingdom of Llyr and am of blood to the sea god Llyr Half- Speech.” she told him before righting herself again
“Oh, that’s alright. I just thought you might be a roughen or thug. My mother warned me about those kinds of people,” Rapunzel said, giving the girl a weary smile, “I’m Rapunzel by the way.”
She tossed her frying pan aside and tugged on a piece of her hair. Rapunzel then…
Rapunzel laughed at this comment and blushed with embarrassment.
“I’ve found throughout my exploring that it comes in handy more then any sword will. If you want, i can show you how to use it.”
She shuffled over to her bag and revealed another frying pan which was a bit smaller than the one she was originally holding.
“If you want, I can show you how to use one. Then we can go test out our skills! What do you say?”
Eilonwy giggled a bit at her enthusiasm, “I think I will stick to my sword and my archery. I’m rather good that those. Plus, wouldn’t it be hard if your opponent had a sword and you had a pan, to defeat them? You’d have to be pretty quick to evade their sword before you could strike them with the pan.” she pointed out thoughtfully.
