"He tried, but maybe we were just supposed to read more into that," Nathifa said. "But as for Saga's idea, I don't know how we'd even find her to talk with much less catch her on a good day." She surveyed the swamp again with a frustrated look at her face as they walked out. "We should hurry back to the rest of them then."

"If this is one of those things that's going to hit me months later, I'm going to..." he trailed off as his mind began to run wild with ideas. As they neared the docks again, the realization that they were going to have to get back in the boats hit him.

((shorty short.))

Nathifa too remembered that their boat had been chomped by a giant catfish. "No problem," she said. After a couple words and some waiting, a nile riverboat drifted up to the dock from some unseen source. Nathifa hopped into the boat and held out a hand for her mate. The wood of the boat was crafted by gods and would not be able to be pierced by a catfish.

Tynan smiled and mumbled something in french that Akaelin hadn't quite heard. He was too busy dealing with the fact that he had to get back in a boat again. He never knew what caused him to get so sick. It wasn't even like they were on a big, rocking boat. Any kind of vessel on water just made his stomach churn.

"Je peux voir qui porte la culotte dans cette relation," Tynan chuckled as Akaelin took his mates hand and climbed into the boat.

"Je vais te tuer si fort en mourir," Akaelin grumbled in response as the chimera climbed in next. "J'aurais du laisser le poisson que vous mangez," he added under his breath.

Tynan made a sarcastic, mocking frown, placing his index finger underneath his eye, and trailing it down his cheek like a fake tear.

((Tynan: I can see who wears the pants in this relationship
Akaelin: I will kill you so hard you die from it. I should've let the fish eat you.))

As soon as all of the members of their party were in the boat, the oars started moving and the boat began to glide across the water.

"How are we going to find the small group if they're not still at the town?" Nathifa asked.

“Are any of the hyenas with them?” Akaelin asked. He thought that Nathifa had some sort of telepathic link to them or something, and could tell where they were. Unless that had been broken with the arrival of the new leader or something. Hell, he had no idea. “If they’re not too far away, I might be able to track them based off of Tynans scent,” he suggested.

"Half the pack should be with them," Nathifa said. "But it would be a lot easier to reach them if Sykino was with that group, which she isn't. On the off-chance I could get in touch with Adyro or Vefip, I doubt I could even talk to them much less tell where they are from this distance. I suppose we can always head for the town and follow their scent trail if it goes off in another direction." The river boat bumped gently against the shoreline as the group reached land.

"M'kay," was all Akaelin was able to mutter. The longer the boat ride went on, the more nausiated he got. He tried to focus his mind away from the feeling by counting the little lines in the wood of the boat. Unfortunately when it bumped up against the shoreline, he lost all control over the sickness. He leaned over the edge of the boat and emptied what little was in his stomach into the water. "Let's just get off this damn thing," he coughed, shifting form and leaping gratefully onto the land. He rolled over onto his back, feeling the need to wiggle in the grass for just a moment before coming back to his paws, shaking the debris from his fur.

Nathifa changed forms too, just so that she could walk while being on the same level as her mate. As soon as she did so and jumped to shore, she heard a voice in her head.

Yous there?

Sykino's voice was talking to her, even though she should be out of range. Yes? Nathifa answered uncertainly

Okeydokey. Me comin to get you, yeah. Rest of your boys meeting up with my boys and talk to desert villages. We leave rat-tunnels to come, need all of us there if want win the loyalty of their boys. I 60 dunes out from you, yeah.

"Okay," Nathifa said, accidently out loud. She forgot that Sykino was talking to her in her head. The hyenas measured things in units that they called dunes, which were about equivalent to a third of a mile. Sykino could probably cover 20 miles in an hour at a sprint.

Akaelin didn't even glance at Nathifa when she spoke the single word aloud. When you were mated to a goddess, you eventually got used to some freaky shit. Despite that, and the inferior feeling she sometimes gave him, he still loved her.

'So what's up with the hyenas?' he asked, playfully flicking his tail against the hyenas right hind leg.

"Apparently the rest of the group made contact with the Henkilo and are moving on to some of the pagan desert tribes," Nathifa said. "A couple of them are calling a meeting of all of the tribes and the rest of the hyenas are coming from the tunnels for it. I've never really worked with the nomad tribes, but they're familiar with the pack. Sykino will meet up with us since she's 60 dunes, er, 20 miles away right now."

'They're making good progress then,' Akaelin commented. 'After that, we'll gather inside the tunnels. Quantity is useless if you don't know what the hell you're doing.' He had seen several armies consisting of thousands upon thousands, wiped out by hundereds, simply because they had been completely unorganized and unprepared.

Nathifa nodded, her mind drifting to the tunnels where the rest of the Rebellion was hiding. If they failed in stopping the Triumverate, it would only be a short time before they would be able to find the network of passageways.

"Should we move Rukia and Mshai from the Sanctuary to the tunnels?" She asked Akaelin. "It might be safer for them. But then again, Mshai can go to the oasis, and Runi could help him take Rukia along. But if we die, even there won't be safe."

Akaelin frowned mentally in concentration, trying to decide which would be best. 'I'm not really sure. I think the oasis might be safer, since the tunnels could easily be ambushed. But watching Rukia is like a 24/7 job...' The toddler definately needed some Ritalin for her next birthday...

...Which was coming up in just a few days. She would be...what, three? Yes, that was right. Akaelin hated the thought of not being there, even though for him, it was more of a sad occasion than a joyous one.

Nathifa nodded. "I think I agree, they-"

Whatever she had been about to add onto that was interrupted by a large shape coming crashing through the bushes and skidding to a stop. Sykino was breathing heavily, but had a satisfied look on her face.

"Objects in mirror closer than appear," she said. "I only 30 dunes away when talk to you. You feel different than my boys. I set new land-speed record for me too, yeah!"

Akaelin blinked as the hyena skidded to a halt in front of them. He didn't really have much to say, since he didn't much care that Sykino had run particularly fast.

"Will we be able to get to them before they meet up with the tribes?" Nathifa asked.

"Mebbe, depends how fast we go, and how slow they do," Sykino responded. "We not get there more than half day later than thems though either way. Planned meeting not till tomorrow morning."

Tomorrow morning? That wouldn't be too bad, Akaelin had suspected worse. He dug his claws into the earth, eager and impatient to get going. This trip had been a complete waste, and now they needed to make up for that lost time. He didn't know how they'd do it exactly. He could only hope that those in the tunnels were being productive and not just laying around telling stories.

((For whatever reason, I just got the image of people coming up to Kieran and asking him about weird sex positions. XD
Kieran: Well first there's the oceanic, which is really uncomfortable if you're on top, and then there's also the scubadiver....))

"We gonna run for a bit, if okay with you," Sykino said, beginning to lead the group into a change of pace. In hyena measurements, it was about thirty dunes or so until Rysak appeared running alongside the group.

"I wanna go back now." Faorn complained. "We're not going to learn anything! This is basically a confidential trip for the leaders and the like! Why did we come here in the first place?"

"I'm a curious person." Sarian shrugged.

'We are on our way back, Akaelin grumbled, growing tired of Faorns complaints. She was the one who had wanted to come along, so she just needed to shut her mouth before he shut it for her. Or ripped it off. ...The latter sounded much nicer. He was rather curious about the hyenas measurements though. He had thought that hyenas lived in the dry grasslands, not actual sandy desserts. So why would they measure things in sand? Eh, whatever. Now wasn't really the time for thinking. He was actually enjoying the run, his line having been bred for speed.

((Dammit, I wanna see it TT__TT I had two full-day practices for winterguard instead))

"All of you needed to come to this?" Nathifa asked Sykino as they ran. "It would have been good for some of you to stay behind and help guard the tunnels. Rysak especially."

"We the closest things the pagan tribes have to gods, yeah," Sykino commented. "It cause the rest, them have control of elements. Thems sometime make lot more sense than people with gods. Measurement, ideals, system of government."

"Should I come to this meeting?"

Sykino thought about it for a couple moments, her expression of consideration somewhat humorous. "Mebbe it not best for at first, yeah. They gonna need time accept that we gots gods with us."

Akaelin figured he should probably stay back with Nathifa while the hyenas did the talking. He really didn't like making important decisions without her unless he really had to. He glanced at Sykino out of the corner of his eye while he ran, giving his legs the stretch they had been begging for for the past few days.

"You need come, though," Sykino said, glancing at Akaelin. "You leader of Rebellion, so theys gonna wanna talk to you, yeah. Also, if we only ones talk to them, less might come cause they think we in control of you. If we show you making decision, thems gonna know wes the ones that follows you."

Nathifa nodded. Though they gave a hyena pack a certain level of respect, they would never worship them to the point of following all of their commands. However, that respect could be an advantage should it be used like Sykino was suggesting.

'Sure, whatever,' Akaelin answered. 'Just lead the way and I'll try to smile and act nice,' he added. Politics were too confusing and too demanding. There were always circumstances, situations, loop holes. You had to think out every little possible detail and if you didn't, you would get screwed up the ass.
