Lost Harbor
It is the evening of the fifth day, and while scouting by air, Kuari has located the main party as they prepared to make camp. Upon verifying their identity, she revealed herself and, after the happy reunions, now leads the party to the abandoned house where Captain Harper awaits!
After 22-Jan-2020 00:00:00
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 21:15:20

MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:16:27

CTO LtC Wolfe 22-Jan-2020 21:16:37
:: is still taking up the rear, protecting his crew. ::
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:16:41

SCI LtJG Jude 22-Jan-2020 21:16:51
:: taps kuari :: XO: Mind if I climb up?
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:17:08
:: staying up with Kuari :: XO: How long do you think it'll take to get there?
NAV Lt Navarro 22-Jan-2020 21:17:15
:: walking along with the party, carrying his fair share ::
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:18:01
:: stops and nods to Jude, moving one wing and regarding Wright :: CSO: We should make it by dark, hopefully.
SCI LtJG Jude 22-Jan-2020 21:18:21
:: climbs up onto Kuari's back, then yawns ::
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:18:54
:: waits impatiently while Jude mounts Kuari, worried that it will slow them down, but says nothing and instead looks up at the darkening sky :: XO: Hopefully.
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:18:56
CSO: Wait, put the netting down on my back for Jude, so she will be more comfortable :: nods to the netting being carried ::
CMO Lt Tailor 22-Jan-2020 21:20:50
::peers ahead, excited to get to wherever it is that Kuari is leading them to::
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:21:31
:: looks around for Emily, who had the net ::
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:21:48
:: nods, obliging. She hefts the net onto Kuari's back, then smooths it out ::
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:22:18
:: suppressing the voice inside her that is about to scream at the delays ::
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:22:55
:: rolls her shoulders, happy to be free of it and able to move faster, but keeping behind Kuari since she has the most to carry. ::
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:23:42
:: moves on, now carrying Jude more freely since she's not afraid of moving the wrong way, and hurries ahead with little change of pace ::
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 21:23:47
:: takes a long drink of her water, lost in thought as she gazes into the fire, wondering why they are here and where everyone else is ::
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:25:59
All: So, when did you all find yourselves here?
CMO Lt Tailor 22-Jan-2020 21:26:18
::maybe it's the iminent arrival at something resembling civilization, or the days of monotonous food choices, but she suddenly has a craving for chocolate::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 21:26:21
:: scans the surroundings, falling back to walk at Wolfe's side, gaze staying active ::
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:26:56
XO: Here as in on this planet? This is the... fifth day, for Wolfe and I.
CMO Lt Tailor 22-Jan-2020 21:27:05
XO: About three days ago maybe? I've lost track, to be honest.
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:27:13
All: Five days for Grey and I.
CMO Lt Tailor 22-Jan-2020 21:27:22
All: Could be five...
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:27:35
All: As a group?
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:27:46
XO: No, Grey and I woke up together and were alone at first.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 21:27:56
:: hums in affirmative to Acacia's statement, shaking her head. :: XO: No ma'am. Acacia and I were a duo
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:27:57
XO: Then we found..
SCI LtJG Jude 22-Jan-2020 21:28:02
XO: I was with Tailor.
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:28:11
:: looks around, a finger trailing. She sighs, tired. ::
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:28:20
XO: As did Wolfe and I. Then on the second or third day, Ilaihr stumbled upon us.
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:28:20
:: climbs over a fallen log, raising her wings to pin Jude so she doesn't slide off ::
NAV Lt Navarro 22-Jan-2020 21:28:23
XO: I was alone for a few days. :: chuckles :: Fun times.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 22-Jan-2020 21:28:37
::Follows along quietly behind the others.::
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:28:48
XO: We found Wright, yeah.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 21:28:52
XO: Does the Captain have any idea what brought us here? :: questions, speeding up her pace to look up at Kuari ::
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:29:13
All: So all but Navarro woke up in pairs...
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:29:24
XO: And Ilaihr.
CMO Lt Tailor 22-Jan-2020 21:29:42
XO: We woke up next to a fire with embers that wouldn't light, and a bedroll that crumbled as soon as we picked it up. Very strange.
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:30:01
:: nods at Tailor :: CMO: Same.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 21:30:05
:: snaps around to look at Tailor :: CMO: Same for Acacia and I!
CMO Lt Tailor 22-Jan-2020 21:30:18
All: Curiouser and curiouser...
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:30:33
:: stops, staring at Tailor a moment, then looked to the others :: All: You all woke up next to a campfire and bedroll?
SCI LtJG Jude 22-Jan-2020 21:30:44
XO: Yup.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 21:30:49
XO: Yes ma'am.
CMO Lt Tailor 22-Jan-2020 21:30:49
XO: Yes. Such as it was, anyway.
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:30:51
XO: Did you not?
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:31:24
CSO: We did. TAC2: And no, the two of us don't know how we got here. :: begins walking again ::
SCI LtJG Jude 22-Jan-2020 21:31:40
XO: What's weird is the fire went out and could not be revived. And the bedroll disintegrated when we picked them up.
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:31:59
:: peers ahead through the trees, trying to spot the place where Kate is ::
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 21:32:18
:: watches the sun begin to set, setting the sky ablaze in reds, oranges, yellows, and pinks ::
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:32:19
SCI: Yes, it was very strange for us, too. The scent of it disappeared so fast, as if it had been there for a long time.
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:32:21
:: chuckles, leaning over to Grey :: TAC2: We didn't even check the bed rolls, did we?
TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 21:33:06
:: hums in agreement to Jude's statement, glancing up at her :: XO: Acacia and I left before the fire went out and the bedrool disintegrated. :: glances at Acacia's question, breaking into laughter. :: MED: No, no we didn't. I immediately gave you my slippers and we headed off towards water.
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:34:01
:: shakes her head at the apparent poor use of resources, but says nothing ::
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:34:58
:: sets a brutal pace and looks back, making sure everyone is staying with her ::
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:35:32
:: picks it up to a jog, high on adrenaline anyway ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 22-Jan-2020 21:35:50
:: is glad this crew is excited to get where they're going, instead of this experience being like the herding of felines. ::
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:36:13
:: doesn't think about lack of shoes ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 21:36:16
:: is following the pace, scrambling over the wood and fallen trees with faint winces as the splinters dug into her soles, jogging now ::
NAV Lt Navarro 22-Jan-2020 21:36:42
:: easily keeps pace, used to such exertions in the holodeck ::
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:36:45
:: moves steadily alongside Kuari at their ground-eating pace, ignoring the pain in her feet ::
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:37:19
:: watches the ground in front of herself, occasionally glancing up at the treeline in hopes of being there. She tries to avoid pointy things, but mostly ends up biting her tongue ::
SCI LtJG Jude 22-Jan-2020 21:37:45
:: taps Kuari :: XO: There is a lot of hurting feet behind ya
TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 21:38:38
:: barely risks a glance, but knows there's a lot of splinters that she'll have to pull out when they stop, despite the throbbing she could feel ::
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:38:42
:: scowls, but knows Jude is right ::
SCI LtJG Jude 22-Jan-2020 21:39:07
:: looks behind her :: CSO: Oi.
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:40:02
:: looks behind her and slows somewhat, never letting people catch up but stays in sight :: All: We found a house! It will be cramped, but it's big enough to keep us all out of the weather and warm for sure. It's best we make it before dark!
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:40:34
Self: A... house? XO: This world is inhabited?
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 21:40:36
ACTION> As Kuari leads everyone down the river, the sun begins to disappear behind the treeline, and the reds in the sky begin to deepen to oranges, pinks, and purples.
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:40:57
:: laughs wryly, trudging on. She hears talk of a house, and raises an eyebrow ::
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:41:40
CSO: It's the only sign of civilization we've yet encountered, but yes. It has been abandoned for some time.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 21:41:44
:: leans over to Acacia. :: MED: You think you could do me a huge favor when we stop for the night?
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 21:42:03
:: gets up to feed a bit more wood to the fire, ensuring it's ready to cook whatever Kuari brings ::
CMO Lt Tailor 22-Jan-2020 21:42:12
XO: Abandoned? Any idea for how long?
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:42:15
XO: Huh.
CTO LtC Wolfe 22-Jan-2020 21:42:16
:: continues to listen closely to the woods around, now, again, with it being the night, and knowing that the rest of the group isn't really paying attention in their excitement ::
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:42:35
:: lowers her voice, nodding to Grey :: TAC2: Sure, what?
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 21:43:10
:: settles back into the chair, starting to get concerned as she notes the time ::
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:43:39
CMO: I can't say, the sturdy materials have kept it in good condition, but I'm going to guess as old as the campfires. Also...well, I'll let the Captain tell you.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 21:44:23
:: glances around, looking back at Acacia. :: MED: Helping me with these collection of splinters I seem to be picking up?
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:44:59
:: chuckles, nodding :: TAC2: Of course.
CMO Lt Tailor 22-Jan-2020 21:45:26
XO: Maybe we'll be able to tell more once we all get there.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 21:46:59
:: elbows Acacia slightly at her chuckle, sending an amused glare. :: MED: Hey now!
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:47:38
:: slows over a rise, staring into the distance ahead, and grins in the fading light :: All: There! That's the house, ahead!
CMO Lt Tailor 22-Jan-2020 21:47:47
XO: I'm just glad there's somewhere we can go with a roof, and maybe some warmth.
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 21:48:16
:: takes another drink of water and waits, trying not to worry, knowing that Kuari is more formidable than anything they have seen here yet ::
CMO Lt Tailor 22-Jan-2020 21:48:17
::smiles and looks ahead, excited to see this house Kuari was talking about::
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:48:17
:: groans with relief, seeing something on the horizon :: CMO: Warmth would be nice..
TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 21:48:59
:: sighs in relief at hearing Kuari's words, moving to stand at the top of the ridge with a sigh. ::
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:49:29
:: peers ahead and spots the house, instantly breaking into as much of a sprint as she possibly can given the terrain ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 22-Jan-2020 21:49:47
:: finally reaches the ridge after the rest of the group, and takes a moment to regard the structure where Kuari is pointing ::
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 21:50:05
:: inclines her head, hearing something approaching, but it's not flapping wings ::
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:50:10
:: hurries her pace, calling to Harper to announce their presence, not caring what else hears her ::
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:50:31
:: sees the fire outside and the figure next to it as she comes crashing through the underbrush ::
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 21:50:35
:: hears Kuari's call and relaxes, but idly wonders why she's approaching on foot ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 21:50:58
:: hurries down the rise, following the others with faint winces here and there, jogging towards the house ::
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 21:51:00
:: turns as she hears something crash out of the underbrush and narrows her eyes, straining against the dim light ::
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:51:37
:: keeps trudging along, not having an extra burst of speed left in her. She smiles as she feels Harper's presence through the brush, glad to know the reunion is imminent ::
NAV Lt Navarro 22-Jan-2020 21:52:04
:: follows along, carrying the backpack full of animals ::
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:52:34
:: finally breaks into the clearing and dashes across it, essentially tackling the familiar figure, wrapping her arms around Kate and sobbing with sudden relief ::
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 21:52:59
:: before she's tackled, an unforgettable face breaks into the light :: Lexy?!
:: wraps her arms around her wife as tears of joy begin to stream down her cheeks ::
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:53:42
:: is far enough ahead to see Wright sprint past her, slowing down to spare Jude from falling off her back, and grins at the reunion ::
CMO Lt Tailor 22-Jan-2020 21:53:45
::smiles at the seeing the Captain, and Lexy reunited::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 22-Jan-2020 21:54:10
::Finally take the opportunity to find a comfortable place to sit down.::
SCI LtJG Jude 22-Jan-2020 21:54:33
:: groans :: Ow. my thighs.
TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 21:54:36
:: skids to a halt as she enters the clearing, almost immediately bending over to take deep breaths, slightly not noticing the reunion between Captain and Wright, padding over to flop down on her back in exhaustion. ::
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 21:55:09
:: leans back and blinks through sodden eyes, taking in her face, which she cups in her hands, one on each cheek ::
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:55:09
:: pushes through the brush and sighs with relief, looking around and counting all the people they've ended up with ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 22-Jan-2020 21:55:11
:: continues along, continuing his mission of protecting everyone, thinking for the briefest of moments about whether this house means he could have set down his load and maybe split Navarro's with him. Ah, well. Too late for that now. ::
CMO Lt Tailor 22-Jan-2020 21:55:25
::looks around at the clearing and the house in front of them, almost not believing that they found something resembling civilization::
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:55:27
:: fully ugly-crying ::
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:57:13
:: reaches the house, dancing in place a bit, making happy sounds, then finally moves a wing so Jude can slide off her back ::
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 21:57:26
Oh, Lunatu, it really is you! :: wipes futilely at Lexy's tears as her own intensify, then gives up and plants a kiss right on her lips ::
SCI LtJG Jude 22-Jan-2020 21:57:47
:: slides off, and immediately flops to the ground and rubs her thighs ::
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 21:58:51
:: ditches the net then runs out to others still making their way :::
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 21:59:09
:: clings to Kate, as if she may disappear in a puff of smoke :: CO: I.. we... everyone... they...
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 21:59:28
:: politely ignores Wright's breakdown and goes to check out the house ::
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 22:00:22
CSO: Shhhh... :: just keeps kissing Lexy, her own tears flowing freely ::
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 22:00:42
:: offers her back to people with loads to carry ::
NAV Lt Navarro 22-Jan-2020 22:01:19
:: places the backpack on the patio near the fire, eyeing the house ::
CMO Lt Tailor 22-Jan-2020 22:03:44
::follows Acacia into the house after waiting a few moments to see if anyone else is going in, feeling a sense of immediate relief at the roof over her head::
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 22:04:05
:: after a long moment of emotional release, looks around a bit embarrassed and wipes her tears on the unfamiliar fabric Kate is clad in :: CO: What... :: sniffles :: ...What are you wearing?
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 22:04:05
:: discovers that the taps work and turns to Tailor, eyes wide :: CMO: This is good, where's Jude?
SCI LtJG Jude 22-Jan-2020 22:04:19
:: raises arm :: MED: Down here!
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 22:04:37
ACTION> The house has a sliding glass back door, a mostly-immovable front door, a kitchen that flows into a living area, which leads into a hallway branching into the bathroom and two bedrooms.
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 22:05:34
:: goes to Jude to help her up and into the house, of which the sliding glass door stands open for now :: SCI: Come on, let's get you inside.
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 22:05:46
:: grins through her tears :: CSO: Clothes I found in the house. I spent three and a half days with none at all! :: her expression shifts to concern at Lexy's state of attire :: But you... are you alright?
TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 22:06:11
:: is stretched out on the ground, relaxing with deep sighs as she let her eyes drop into a dozing state ::
SCI LtJG Jude 22-Jan-2020 22:06:16

CMO Lt Tailor 22-Jan-2020 22:07:10
MED: Fresh water! That's good news. I'll look around to see if there's anything we can use for medical supplies.
XO Cdr Kuari 22-Jan-2020 22:07:30
:: finds Grey on the ground in the clearing, picking up her wrist and pulling suggestively :: TAC2: Come on, almost there!
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 22-Jan-2020 22:07:55
::With his back against a tree, a dozes off and begins to snore.::
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 22:08:50
:: smiles again :: Good. Acceptable and alive, and with me. :: wipes at her eyes to dry them before she turns to see who else has come ::
MED Lt Acacia 22-Jan-2020 22:08:59
:: brings Jude into the kitchen, and would first just fill a couple glasses with water, giving one to Jude and then putting them out on the counter for those coming in who will be thirsty ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 22-Jan-2020 22:09:34
:: arrives with the last of the crew at the house, sets his load down outside, and walks in. :: Self: Cozy.

TAC2 1Lt Grey 22-Jan-2020 22:10:02
:: groans, opening to glare at Kuari, heaving herself up into a slow standing position. :: XO: I-I'm aware! :: limps towards the inside of the house, beelining straight to the chair and flopping into it, attention turning to start looking over her feet in an attempt to clean the splinters off ::
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 22:10:42
:: takes Lexy's hand, not wanting to let her get far from her, and surveys the new arrivals ::

CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 22:11:28

CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 22:13:33

CSO: Kuari and I woke up together, at a campfire that died significantly faster than it should have... I trust your experience was similar? You were wearing that :: gestures at her :: in bed.
CSO Cdr Wright 22-Jan-2020 22:14:53
:: nods at Kate :: CO: Yes. The bedrolls we were on fell apart when we tried to pick them up. It was like they were... old, somehow. The fire, as well.
CO Capt Harper 22-Jan-2020 22:15:05
:: nods :: CSO: Exactly the same.
