  1. Esme

    Private Tales Unexpected Encounters

    Esme's jaw clenched. While that energy sat over her skin, the strangest thing could be felt to those that stood close to her. Her feelings were perceptible. They radiated off her, like a reverse empath. Seska's words hit several cords deep inside of her, bringing about a wave of bubbling...

    Private Tales Unexpected Encounters

    Esme clenched her fist, trying to keep herself steady. Though in truth she felt a million miles away from her own two feet. "And I could use it on you," she bluffed, gritting through her teeth. The energy was kept inside the palm of her hand, massive and chaotic for how compact she held it-- a...

    Private Tales Unexpected Encounters

    Esme stood her ground, her heel digging into the mossy dirt beneath her. The whip was dropped, discarded on the ground. She drew neither the bow on her back nor the half sword on her hip. She merely glowered at the space in the clearing the growls had come from. The creature leapt over a bush...

    "What, did you kill it's uncle or something?" Esme grumbled, straining in the saddle to look around them. They were unlikely to find any such thing again, and clearly the creature was not going to drop the chase so easily. "Right there." She gestured to a clearing up ahead through the trees...

    Private Tales Unexpected Encounters

    Esme road easily behind her, her free hand light yet present on the woman's hip as she leaned out and deterred any close advances with the flick of her impromptu whip. For all the fright the cat caused, the moment was over fast enough. They were left no worse for wear as the cat growled and...

    Private Tales Unexpected Encounters

    Believe it or not, this was not Esme's first encounter with a wild cat of this magnitude. It barely took the sound of its yowl to have Esme snap back into a tense position, understanding for what it meant found in an instant. She grabbed the woman's hand, her movements liquid as she slid up...

    Private Tales Unexpected Encounters

    Esme began to feel the thickness of magic intertwined with the horses being. It did not make sense to her, her abilities telling her nothing more than the fact that energy outside of its life force was there, and in surprising quantities. But with all the magic Esme had experienced, some...

    Private Tales Unexpected Encounters

    Esme slid the dagger back into the folds of her cloak, shoulders falling a little further away from their tense perch by her ears. The horse nuzzled her further again, causing some of the lines in her forehead to melt away. "Sleeping. Or. I was. It's quiet out here," came the peculiar answer...

    Esme sighed, relenting to the fact that there was no avoiding going down this rodeo again. "No, just me." She held out her hands, the pack on the ground rather small and limp. She gestured for the woman to try, already knowing that there was simply nothing that would deter the horse from her...

    Private Tales Unexpected Encounters

    Esme primed. "I am perfectly capable of looking after myself. Now here, call your horse away before I eat him for dinner," she dismissed, grumpy. She looked at said horse, narrowing her eyes at it and abruptly going 'bah!' It did not flinch, instead reaching out to nibble her hair in a silent...

    Private Tales Unexpected Encounters

    Esme jolted back a step at the sudden intrusion, a dagger pulled out of gods knows where with a blur of motion. She glared down the woman, her small frame every bit tense and ready to lash out of needed. After a moment of observing the woman's open-palmed position, she relented into relaxing...
  12. Esme

    Private Tales Unexpected Encounters

    Esme had been sleeping perfectly comfortably on a bed of leaves when she felt it-- a ripple of magic disturbing the energy she had tune into during a pre-nap meditation exercise. She jolted up, eyes sharp and alert in an instant. It wasn't the size of the disruption that had stirred her, but...

    Completed Growing Pains

    Luna left without saying a word, so that was exactly what she got in turn. Esme watched her go, expressionless and composed as the woman's figure disappeared back into the dusky treeline. True to her word, Esme didn't keep her there. She didn't force knowledge down her ignorant throat or make...

    Completed Growing Pains

    "Well go find one," she quipped, almost forceful in her solution. She stood, grabbing the animal hides holding the innards and moving to take them well outside their camp to bury them properly from animal noses. "Probably a spell keeping you dumb too," she grumbled, not really meant to be...

    Completed Growing Pains

    "Clearly." Esme seemed to fume for a moment more before rolling her eyes and expanding on the topic for the first time. "Go... find another mage or something. A mentor, old guys love doing that kinda shit. Learn to not blow up things when upset and-- I dunno. Go back to mucking stalls or...
