Arminas sat against one of the trees while the others babbled on, half paying attention to them, but most of him was dedicated to conversing with the forest. Finally, when they all seemed to have quieted for a moment, he spoke up.
"I don't know all of what's been taken, but there have been some odd comings and goings. Whoever has been doing this has done an exceptional job of keeping it quiet, likely there is an odd sort of magic behind it all. I don't like it, what could they possibly have of mine...?"
He shook his head, and stood up, then he looked towards the canopy for a moment before he looked back at all of them, and walked up beside Rose, slinging his bowstave over his shoulders. This whole situation was just wrong...how could the trees not have seen this? The house, he was familiar with, but he had never gone there, and he didn't know that any of the animals did either. Was sort of an unspoken thing that it was to be left alone, the trees there were cold and didn't talk much, he rarely bothered even to try.
"I suppose to be quite honest... there's no reason in me getting involved in al this. Still."
He looked at rose again for a moment. She had a sister that they had taken...? He had never had anything like a sister... though he knew of the closeness of the wolves, if one of their pack was lost it was always a terrible thing... they would be terribly sad for weeks. But wolves were practical creatures, they got over it because they needed to hunt. He could only imagine what it might be like for someone like her... He felt the jellery ((Whats a jellery?)) in his pocket, and looked down at it before he waved a little to Raven as she departed, before he looked back at the others, and then to Rose.
"But I'm not about to let the kind of... bulls**t that these bastards are trying to pull happen. Until I'm proved otherwise, you all seem like decent enough people... I'll help. Anyone who wants, I'll show you the house tomorrow, I think theres been enough for one day. Or you can ask the trees about it, they know more than I do."
It never occured to him, even for a moment, that the others wouldnt be able to talk to the forest.
"For now, though, what are the groups going to be?"
