((I liiiiiive! It's been a while since i've posted something here. I thought this would be a nice return story.))
She took off in a brisk run. The rising sun bathed Stormwind in red and orange hues. These runs had become a normal part of her routine after choosing to learn to be a shield barer. The rough hewn shield she was wearing now was nothing like the more elegant one that she was planning to use. It did not matter though, at this point she was getting used to a shield on her back compared to her broadsword. I have the extra time to learn this anyway.
It had surprised her how much free time had opened up, not that she should have been surprised. At her busiest she was assisting in running the military with Brownmane and Flamewind and keeping on top of her Guardian duties and Soldier duties. Now all she needed to worry about was her Keeper duties and what ever assignment she was given for the month.
In the beginning, she thought the large amount of free time would bother her after she stepped down as a Guardian. She enjoyed the extra time to do what ever struck her fancy at the time. Like her newest project, she was not just learning a new fighting style, she was doing a lot of research as well. New designs, new materials, she planned to have everything be completely new by the time she was done.
Well, not completely new. She mused. The shield that had hung in her home was the shield she wanted to use. She was still unsure if she would use it, it was a cherished family heirloom and it would break her heart if something happened to it. She would need to do something to protect it if she did use it. Perhaps an enchantment of some kind would work best, but she didn't know the first thing about that sort of enhancement.
Perhaps Ketani’s stewards project could be helpful in that.
She slowed to a stop, biting back a groan at her stupidity. Ketani was the answer to her problem! She was a very good enchanter from what Kate had told her. She also trusted the nethermancer to treat the shield with the respect it deserved.
Ketani could sometimes be a little intimidating, but she didn’t think the nethermancer would dismiss her out of hand.
I do have my path work that I wanted, to be more sociable. Speaking with Ketani for this would count yes? She mused to herself. She wasn’t sure, technically while the nethermancer was intimidating; that didn’t mean that she wasn’t one of the easier people to talk with. She debated with herself back and forth on the run, the path so ingrained to her that she did not have to focus on where she was running. It was early enough in the morning that the streets were fairly clear too so she needn’t worry about running into anyone.
I can’t risk someone destroying it, or weakening it. Even if there are others who I could go to be more open to working with others in TE I can’t risk someone I can’t trust. The shield was the only one she had, it was not like she could remake it if it was broken. It was her fathers, and even a remade shield wouldn’t be the same. If she could not be relatively sure it would remain in one piece she could not risk it’s destruction.
She shook her head lightly, bemused at a sudden thought. I would need to seek Ketani out anyway. She’s the one making Kate’s wedding gown, and I need to wear something more than that black dress to the wedding if I will be the Maid of Honor at the wedding. Her decision made, she turned towards home, she would seek out Ketani when the nethermancer was available.
