[Sweetwine] Floral Arrangement

It felt good to enjoy sunshine once more. Chin tilted up, Yeva hummed in relaxation while the sun's rays kissed her freckled cheeks. It was a mild day, at least compared to the temperatures that had been plaguing Scalvoris since she arrived and the young woman had no intention of missing the chance to enjoy the pleasant weather. Others were with her, just a few curious individuals who had also shown interest in recording Scalvoris' flora, a couple even wearing hats to signify the new fashion that had seemingly taken the region by storm. Yeva, as always, was dressed simply in a white dress and Order of Adunih cloak, medical satchel slung across her chest with journal and pencil in hand. The advert from the Intelligentsia (that is a scholarly faction that she only recently learned of) had requested a sample of their discovery, and so she also carried a small pot that hung from her belt.

"Yeva?"

Some ways back a small group had formed and a short thin man wearing spectacles waved for her attention.

"Coming!" She briskly joined them, smiling at the man known as Mr. Maikan.

"Excellent, only we've just begun introductions," he used an index finger to push his glasses further up a hooked nose. Despite the sharp angles of his face, his voice had a soothing, almost storyteller quality that made him seem quite kind, "I'll go first. You c..an call me Mark Maikan. I have only recently joined the faction. oh, what was it? One...? Two arcs ago? Ah, they've kept me busy and I'm a better man for it!" He laughed and reached out to hover a hand over Yeva's shoulder.

"Some of you have joined us before, but there are some new faces, I see. Everyone, this is Yeva. She is... from Rharne, yes? A member of the Order! I imagine she'll be rather interested in our work here today. Who knows, maybe we will find the next cure for the pox!"

His optimism was endearing and she couldn't help but smile. Mr. Maikan moved around the circle, introducing people he recognized and allowing those he didn't to have the chance to do so if they wished. Following pleasantries, he declared they pair up, "We still have plenty of sunlight left in the trial, but Sweetwine can have its dangers, as any wilderness can. To cover the most ground possible, we shall partner up. Record our findings and meet back here... Oh, what time do you think? Hm... Of course, it would be ill-advised for anyone to stray too far away from the path, however, I understand the importance of bravery in research. Stay sharp! We want everyone coming back in one piece!"

Yeva softly chuckled at the light warning - it was true, of course, but he delivered it with such conviction! - She turned to the girl beside her. She was small, young, perhaps twelve or thirteen and a fellow redhead. It was great, seeing someone so young interested in scholarly pursuits! If Yeva was bothered by her age, it didn't show, "If you're ready, I'm ready," she double checked her bag just to be safe and looked past to the looming trees just beyond, "Are you from Scalvoris?"

Alyssia made sure her boots were tied tightly to keep them from coming undone. The next step was to get her bow and arrows. The girl looked over at her other two weapons. A whip and the pair of sai as they had been called. She had not used them enough to get comfortable with either such weapon. The last thing the girl needed was to take them with her and get injured when trying to use them in combat. Eventually the teen knew she would have to go seek out someone who could properly train her in the weaponry.

A part of her wanted to learn how to wield all of the weapons known to the older people, but for now there was nothing left to do. She had heard of a group going out to look at the local flora around the city. It would give the girl a proper excuse to see new people and explore the woods around Scalvoris on her own. Any time she had made her way out of the city, the girl had stuck to the main road while traveling. Moving quickly, Alyssia finished preparing and ran out her hide away going to find where the group was meeting.

Her muscles worked hard as her legs pumped her closer to the location while listening. She had to make sure her directions on where to find the group were accurate. The last ting Alyssia wanted to be was late to the gathering. If she was late there was no way of knowing if the girl would be able to keep up. Panting, there was a light burn in her lungs as she paused to look around. In the distance she could see what looked like a group of people gathered towards the gate of the city. Moving quickly, the young Aukari forced her breathing even staying back towards the outside of the group. At least if she was the last one there by the time she was asked anything her breathing would be calmed down.

As expected there was a period where each began to introduce themselves. The first being who she assumed was their instructor for the day, a man named Mark Maikan. He also introduced a woman that he recognized from some kind of Order, her name was Yeva. She did not have a last name it appeared, which was much like Alyssia not having one. Or at least not one she could remember.

“Hello, my name is Alyssia,” the teen said when it came time for her to speak.

She once again went silent and listened closely to what their instructions were. It made sense that he would warn them all to be careful of the dangers that would lurk within the forest around the city. Watching, the girl moved out of the way as people eagerly paired up with each other. The teen looked as it soon became clear that Alyssia would be teamed up with Yeva. The lady that was part of some order from another city.

“I am ready,” Alyssia stated with a nod of her head and walked with her away from the others, “not by birth no. But I suppose this is now my home. What is the Order?”

Alyssia wanted to try and get to know the woman that she was paired with. The teen did not feel that she would be any real help actually identifying the flora herself.

"It's nice to meet you," Yeva noted the girl's name and tucked a curl behind her ear and together they began to walk towards the forest. She was happy to talk about her involvement and thought perhaps she might be interested in joining one day, "You haven't heard of the Order? I suppose formally, our name is the Order of Adunih; we're a faction of healers and medics. I'm rather new to it, you can tell by my green cloak. The color we wear is based on our ranking and you can earn all sorts of hoods and trim. For instance, a white trim is for those with apothecary knowledge... Harvesting and crafting medicine from herbs. There's a branch here in Scalvoris Town, if you're ever interested."

Before the forest, Yeva leaned back to admire the height of the trees and began to step over the thickening grass, "We can start by just looking around for any interesting plants or those that look out of the ordinary, I think. I'm not sure what's been recorded but being thorough should be fine... Oh, we should be careful in what we touch. Here, I think I might have an extra pair of gloves around here somewhere..."

Yeva patted her pockets and then reached into her bag, pulling out a spare pair. She waited to see if the younger woman looked over and gave them a toss, at the same time spotting a bit of yellow further in the woods, "Alyssia," she glanced back, pointing a bit futher ahead and pushed deeper into the woods, pausing to untangle her cloak from any branches that tried to snag, "Look at that." Hanging from some branches above her head were beautiful blooms that hung downward. They were beautiful.
