Gifted- Town one

Chastity rode horseback towards the town of Glensgrove. Just outside town near the river she nodded quietly.

"This was a good idea." she said in a hushed tone. "We got here pretty quickly and it felt great to ride again." Chastity smiled. "How are you feeling?"

((Just a regular old horse. Kiki doesn't normally use her powers, especially when traveling. if she was the horse she would end up with sore legs and arms at the end of the day.))

Kiki nodded her agreement. "Its only weird in that its a different town than Bulbrooke. Well, that and we'll be interacting more than we have been for the past year and a half." They'd bought two good horses in Bulbrooke before setting out. Her horse had told her that his name was Swifthoof. That wasn't what the seller had said his name was - a ridiculous name of Chomp. Swifthoof was a beautiful specimen of a horse. He was a Clydesdale and strong enough to carry most of their load.

"Chasitity nodded with a smile and grabbed some flint and wood to make a fire for the night. She could easily make one with the snap of her fingers, but she had learned sometimes using her ability wasn't always the best way. On the eve before she graduated her training, she wanted to utilize every way to exercise discretion.

"There." Chastity said with a smile, unbuckling the reigns from Blackfoot (her solid black horse).

"El has been good to us to have gotten us so far."

"Yes, He has." Kiki agreed. She nodded her approval of Chastity's method of lighting their fire. Chastity had learned not to rely solely on her gift. "Now, let us sit, clear our minds, and just listen, as we have done in this year and a half."

Chastity smiled and did just that. She heard the crackle of the fire and leaves rustling past them. She heard Blackfoot and Swifthoof neighing and crickets chirping around her. Somewhere in town someone was sharpening their sword.

All those years in the mountains she had never took the time to listen. In her solitude, thoughts of anger and loneliness clouded her mind so the rocks lit with fire and she stayed busy with her sword and knight training which she knew she could never become. She read books aloud and ran for miles but always near the stone.

Tonight she sat thanking El for bringing her so far. "What if they see through me tomorrow? What if someone recognizes me from the village the siloh burned in?"

With her eyes closed Kiki said in a quiet, peaceful voice "Shh. Just be. Be present in the moment, think of nothing, know that El is in control."

"El is big enough. As His child I cannot be touched by the enemy." she murmered, going back silent.
