Walking Shadows {Open}


Take your Serians here to chat or just roam their homeland.
The sun glitters above vast fields ringed by verdant forests to the north, mountains to the south and east, and wide rivers to the west.

Re: Walking Shadows {Open}

There was a dip where the waves had worn at the walls of the mountain, an area that wasn't quite a cave and yet still had some semblance of one. It was a great hiding place, and precisely where Caustic had tucked himself inside of. He could holler Polo all he wanted and it would take a coon's age for the other to feel him out - at least according to his plan.

Shiro was creeping in just behind Sunspot as well, a grin sliding over his face as they both answered each Marco at the same time, making it harder to peg any one direction as their voices crashed with the waves and bounced around the cove. Caustic's, especially, with the little half-cave he was tucked into was experience a rather large amount of reverberations.

And the clouds were thickening.

Oh yes, this was turning out to be quite some fun indeed.

Re: Walking Shadows {Open}

His head whipped around as he tried to find the source of the voices he heard. He would take a hesitant step in one direction and another step in another direction. This was starting to look hopeless. He took a deep breath to calm himself down. Then he just began walking. He'll bump into something eventually and maybe it will be one of the others. He continued calling marco with his head hanging down, dragging the tips of his hooves through the sand. He did eventually bump into a wall, and started following it, the sounds of the others still ringing in his ears. He continued following the curve of the wall, barely feeling the scratches and cuts he was getting as bits of his fur ripped out. He suddenly felt a dip in the wall that caused him to stumble since most of his weight was leaning against the wall. After gathering his footing he poked his head forward. It felt like the entrance to a cave! He quickly backed away and continued walking along the wall. No way was he going in there! He stopped again, then turned around and went back to the cave. He didn't call out anything. He remained silent as he waited and listened. He heard the faint sound of breathing and he felt the corner of his mouth twitch.

I think I found you Caustic. he said waiting for confirmation, just in case another creature lived in this cove.

Re: Walking Shadows {Open}

Breath alone surely wouldn't have been enough to give away who was crouching in the dip in the wall, but the acrid cloud that hung around him would have been more than enough. Even a swim in the ocean wouldn't cleanse that away.

Rather than answering, he pulled deeper into the cave, grinning in a quietly deceptive way. It was a fairly deep little notch, although he didn't really think it a cave, and while logically backing further in would mean he was potentially cornering himself he had noticed how quickly Sunspot had withdrawn when he felt the low ceiling brushing against the tips of his ears.

Shiro, who was still far enough out to be free of the (rather thin) strip of sand that was still revealed as the time came in for the day called out with an amused whicker You have to make a touch, if I remember the rules! Come fiiiiiind us!

Caustic couldn't help it; he let out a loud snort of a laugh. Sometimes that little white stallion just sounded so perfectly gay!

Re: Walking Shadows {Open}

What!? He had to touch Caustic? But, but but, bububububut.... He squeezed his eyes shut tighter. Okay. He walked closer having heard the faint footsteps from within, signaling something moving back. He stepped into the doorway, then scrambled back out again. He shuddered. Caustic, in a cave. He took a shaky breath and stepped closer once again. As soon as it got darker behind his eyes he hurried out again. He stomped his right forehoof in frustration.

Suddenly he heard something whisper in his head, Think about Shimmer. Shimmer, his mate? He began to think of her star speckled coat and the way she seemed to let of her own light, and how she was always brave and confident. He smiled thinking of her. It somehow gave him the courage to step forward into the cave and keep walking after reaching the entrance. He leaned forward and touched Caustic with the tip of his muzzle. He felt it burn him but didn't show any pain. He never did.

Found you. he said backing out of the cave. Now all that was left was Shiro.

Re: Walking Shadows {Open}

Caustic slipped around behind Sunspot as he finally managed to take more than a half step in the dip. When the tip of his muzzle brushed his flank he turned and quite promptly blocked the opening.

You can open your eyes now, Sunspot. Once you tag someone it's their turn to be it.

He flicked his tail and waited; the stranger was now trapped in a shallow cave with a warrior standing between him and freedom.

He could practically feel Shiro craning his neck to see.

Re: Walking Shadows {Open}

He opened his eyes, and almost had a heart attack. It was so dark, the walls were all around him, and Caustic was what was between him and freedom. He shook so badly he practically vibrated.

C-c-can I go h-hide now? he asked timidly, wanting to get out of this cave and away from this cove as soon as possible.
