TfV - Return - Part 5Ranna strode down the path to Hedge, her steps slightly hampered by the extra weight on her waist. A sheathed sword rested by her hip, given to her by Queen Meriel specifically for this mission. It brought back memories of the academy, where she was first learning to wield one.

There seemed to be two tiger girls in front of her now, their slurred speech echoing in her head. “I’m not a quitter!” she protested, swaying where she stood. “I’ll do it. I just need to... catch... my... um...” She paused, trying to think of the word, though it was like wading through a swamp. “Bearings. That’s the word.”
“I would advise you both stop playing this game soon or you’ll regret this tomorrow morning,” Aubrey broke in, her stern voice dampening Ranna’s spirit.
“Aubrey, let us have our fun,” she said, trying to tap her shoulder but somehow smacking the wall next to her instead. She groaned at the pain, but kept smiling.
