[ VIdeo ]
[ It's rare that Amalthea will lower herself to resorting to human form these days, but it became necessary, sad to say. That is, necessary because her employers insisted that she be inside for the duration of the snowstorm. Probably still guilty over accidentally shooting her and all, a year ago. ]

I am loathe to admit such, but I require assistance, should there be one available to provide it. Those who provide my shelter - [ That's right, that would be the drafty barn she's sitting in right now. ]

Have given me a piece of paper I cannot divine the meaning of.

[ Because she still doesn't know how to read, and hasn't had the need to learn thus far. It may change. ]

Of more importance, my companion has gone missing. I fear the coming storm has left him greatly disturbed. I wish to recover him before the snows grow worse. Therefore, I wish to know if anyone of this place has seen him. He is a creature with the appearance more of a spider than dog, and though he is no longer so aggressive, he does not care for humans.

[ She pauses, and adds quietly. ]

I do not wish for those who claimed him once to do so again. I ... appreciate any information that can be given to me.

[ There, she's fairly sure that's how it works. The Feed stops recording at that point. Time to hit the road again. ]

[ OOC: It may not need to be said, but anyone who's heard Amalthea and the Unicorn can probably put two and two together, or find it a coincidence, since they sound alike. :D IF they want that is ]

Video

Would you be willing to display this paper over video? I can't read many languages, but I've had enough exposure to enough languages to at least make a good guess at what language it is.

I'm afraid I have not seen your companion.

Video

There is no harm in such an action.

[ She pauses to reach over for the paper, smoothing it neatly, and then holds it up in front of the NV. Hers is a mirror, so it's easy to align it. ]

Will this suffice?

[ It's written in plain ol' English, natch, and the extent of the writing basically reads that her services as shepherdess are no longer required. Apparently the owners are elderly and they have been getting some pressure from the Anti Newcomer sentiment in the city when they found out she was working for them. So they're giving her two weeks to find other arrangements before she's going to have to leave since room and board had been included with the job. ]

Re: Video

Yes.

[A short pause while Emma reads the paper.]

My dear, I'm sorry, but what it says is that your employers don't want you working for them and they want you to move out within two weeks.

Do you have a place to go?

ideo

[ She withdraws the paper. ]

Have I offended them in some way? They have not address any concerns with me before.

I ...do, yes. I must admit I have remained in this other place more frequently than in their domicile. It is of more comfort to me.

Video

The paper doesn't say.... The fact that you were not told verbally when given the note suggests a certain amount of unease, but that could be anything.

Video

How unfortunate. They were not unkind to me, though perhaps they did not understand that I did not desire the things they possessed when offered to me.

No matter. I suppose I will be required to find employment elsewhere.

video - Hey fellow magical equine it's been awhile.

A spider... dog? That sounds like one of the Darkness monsters.

Video - Indeed it has! :D

It is a common misconception. I fear had I been unable to reach him he may have become such a creature. It is due to the involvement of the place known as SERO that he is as he is, for he was once a simple canine.

Woah! That's nuts!

Well, if I see any spider dogs while I'm flying around I'll let you know!

Indeed it is ...nuts. [ What weird slang. ]

I thank you, but surely it is not safe to fly in such weather?

Ha! I'm not afraid of a few flurries.

A few mere flurries is no threat to a pegasus, certainly. A storm may prove far more troublesome, as far as vision is concerned. It is dangerous to navigate the skies in such a situation.

I like a little challenge. Clear skies can get so boring!

[ Bemused. ]

You are fond of such dangerous situations? You may be the only airborne creature willing to risk herself when visibility is minimal. I trust you will take care should you find yourself in danger?

I haven't seen your companion. I'm sorry.

[ And Cambria does seem genuinely sad about this--she likes to help when she can, and this whole place has her more confused than she'd like. ]

You need not be apologetic. I did not truly suspect he would allow himself to be seen by others, given his appearance. I will simply seek him out on my own in due time.

I thank you for your swift response, maiden.

[ Maiden? Colour Cambria flattered, and visibly so--she clears her throat, tucking her hair behind her ear. ]

Sorry I couldn't have been any help. But if I see him I'll definitely let you know. Name's Cambria.

[ She's over a hundred years old. You're what, 30? 40? Still a kid compared to her. ]

Well met, ...Cambria. I am Amalthea.

[ Hooray, she's getting better at introductions! Though she keeps forgetting to add 'Lady'. She considers for a moment, decides it is unimportant right now. ]

If you do see him, I caution you not to approach.

Amalthea. That's such a pretty name! [ There's just something otherwordly about this girl. Cambria can't put a finger on it, but it's calming. She likes calming right now. ]

Why wouldn't I approach? Dangerous?

My thanks - it is not one I have chosen, but I have no quarrel with such a designation.

He does not trust a great many in this place.

video;

[ The matter of speaking sounds familiar with Aurican, but he has yet to connect the dots. ]

I have not seen your companion, fair lady. Where have you last saw him?

video;

He dwelled within the domicile I was permitted to remain in for the duration of my employment. Near the forests to the north of the island.

video

You mean you can't read? [Headscratch.] Uh. Well, I can read it to you if you want.

...But I definitely haven't seen a giant spider.

video

I cannot. Your assistance would be most appreciated. [ Also she sees you haven't committed yourself to the mental hospital yet. That's good! ]

I admit I am relieved to know this. I feared for the worst should he have ventured near others.

Re: video

[Not yet, anyway. Give it time!] Sure. It's no trouble. Uh, can you hold it up to the screen? And yeah, giant bugs generally don't get warm welcomes from people, you know?

video

He was not always as such. It is humans who caused him to become such a creature.

[ She picks up the paper and holds it up (upside down on accident) to her mirror NV. ]

Re: video

Oh, man...uh. Maybe I should talk to you in person, actually.

video

If that is your preference. Where do you wish to speak?

[ And then she shows up as a unicorn. ]

Re: video

Uh. What sector are you in? I'm in 3, but I can meet you somewhere else.

[He gets to pet the pretty pony right?]

video

Sector? [ Yeah she doesn't really follow those numbered sectors and such. She just kinda meanders. ]

[ No~! She allows no pettings :D ]

Re: video

Uh...o...kay. I'll just come to you. Where are you at?

[Aa-w, but...pony...]

video

Currently I reside at the lake away from the buildings. I believe it is called Winthers?

[ Nu! That's a bad human! ]

Re: video

A lake called Winthers...um. Alright. I might need to go buy a map first, but I'll try to get there as soon as I can.

[:c]

video

As you wish. I will be here.

When did you last see your companion?

Earlier this morning. He made himself scarce on the arrival of the humans who had need of my attention.

Does he often disappear for so long without contacting you?

No. He has never left my side for such an extended length of time before.

Have you tried contacting him?

He is not human. I cannot reach him through human means.

Even the NV?

No.

You must forgive me, perhaps I have led you to misunderstand. He is a creature of the wild, and does not possess such means to communicate with others.

Oh, well that makes quite a bit of difference. Do you suppose he might be out in the wild still? Any hiding places he may have gone to? Unless perhaps the darkness got him.
