Arminas sat and watched the whole thing, Keirra at his side, her glittering eyes watching intently. Finally, when the woman stopped, Arminas shook his head.
"You, grandmother, I do not know. I have never had parents, much less grandparents. So if these people are this group of which you speak, I cannot be one. I fear that perhaps I do not belong here after all."
He had often wondered as a child if he had parents once... but it had become increasingly clear to him that he was not of these humans that lived outside the borders of his home... he was of the forest. Drifter...? He had never drifted once in his life, never left this forest... and yet now it seemed to do everything to convince him to help them...
Why...? As likable as some of them may be, they are still the same people that every year cut down more and more of this forest... why should I go with them? This power they claim to have is a lie, no power could do that without ending all life on the planet. What madness is this!? Why do you push me to them!?
"I was wrong to involve myself. If you'll all excuse me..."
Arminas stood, pulling his bow from the ground, and Keirra stood as well, looking at him mournfully. He shook his head once, then moved to leave, halting once on the edge of the clearing.
"Whatever you do, the forest will not prevent you..."
ooc: So! here's the error with your post, Rose - Arminas cannot possibly be descended from these people because he is a Silvani - a descendent of the forest. Silvani do not breed, at least not with one another (though yes there is that theory about the creation of elves, but Arminas is not at all human or any other race). So, anyways, Grandma is - has to be - wrong about Armi. Unless you can come up with something else, lol. Sorry to be stubborn but there is no way whatsoever that he is descended from these people as she said
