Riley smiled as they started walking along. He folowed her carefully for he didn`t know which way to go. "I lived in Celesta when I was human," He answered. "I was attacked and stayed in the forests for almost two hundred years. I just recently came back, as you can see." He said simply. That was pretty much what had happened during his life. He had done nothing else, his life in the forest had just consisted of him roaming around.
"The forests I stayed in were west from here, about three hundred miles. I was strong when I had first been changed, so I ran quickl, I still do." He boasted with a now smug grin.
Kyrea grinned, a rather wide grin at his admission of his running abilities. “So, you are a runner then are you?” She gave him a playful wink. “I can run pretty fast myself you know, though honestly, these healed boots tend to put a damper on my speed, just s smidge.” She told him and laughed slightly.
This was good, he had finally smiled, finally became a bit more out of that quiet shell he had put around himself in the beginning. Kyrea continued to grin as they walked and then she laughed all at once and very suddenly. “Oh my..” She stated when her laughter subsided. “I do apologize but I just remembered the first time I ever ran as a vampire…” She giggled then a bit and winked at Riley. “I ran straight into a tree, wasn’t quite ready to take off as fast as I had.” She smiled all the more. “Of course, I have since learned to control those type things, but oh how I remember the firsts for most.” She finished, still walking towards home. “Did you have anything so silly as that happen to you?” she then asked.
Riley jumped when Kyrea laughed so suddenly. When he was back on his feet, he started laughing too when she explained what she was laughing about. "As a matter of fact, when I was running out into the forests, I didn`t hit any trees, but the wind was blowing against me, so I didn`t smell them at first. I ran right into a large herd of wild deer. I tripped over one, killing it as it fell into another deer, so I ended up killing two deer just by tripping."
He didn`t laugh this time, worried what Kyrea would think of his story.
Kyrea cocked her head to the side and imagined the chaotic happening in her mind and after second she laughed. “Oh my..” She stated simply enough and then laughed again, her laughter lightening the mood quite nicely.
“A hunters dream kill.” She giggled and then sighed. “I am certainly glad I am not the only one that has the guts to retell their stories of clumsiness when first realizing their powers.” She told him and smiled broadly at Riley.
She was beginning to like this vampire more and more as he came out fo his shell. She really hoped that he would decide to stay in her home, or more to the point, the home she had made for those who welcomed the life of friends as apposed to solitude, as solitude in vampires is what she truly wanted to abolish as it was more often than not, so many found it hard to keep on and retired themselves to the eternal sleep.
They were winding their way now through the city center, not much further and they would be walking up to the gated fence of what she hoped, he would call home.
Riley smiled again as Kyrea laughed. "Yeah, I had a lot of incidents like that, but at least the forest was still in once piece, more or less, when I left." He joked.
He watched his surroundings as they walked, memorizing every detail about everything they passed. He noticed that they passed a lot of shops, and the area was well worn, a sigh that this area was popular.
"So... about how many vampires live with you?" He asked, slightly nervous about what he was to face.
