At the faint sound of singing, Thais felt hope rise. Only a bard would sing in the middle of a night near a fire… It was either that or a very insane person. Her anxiousness grew noticeable in the tapping of her foot against the muddy ground. Her concentration was broken when a small rock hit her in the side of the knee. She glanced down at the rock before looking over at the young mages. The woman shook her head, letting out an impatient sigh. She looked back towards the direction from which the singing was coming. A small smile appeared on her lips when Maddock gave them the go ahead to keep moving. Her smile quickly disappeared as another rock hit her leg. Apparently being right beside the elf mage in trajectory was a dangerous spot. She followed, the impatient expression reappearing.
As they reached the campsite, Thais surveyed it with subtle interest. After taking note of the fairly humble area, she listened to the exchanges between the templars. Thais glanced at the female stranger as Alderic introduced her. A Chantry sister, yet alone in the middle of the forest at night. It seemed a bit odd. She crossed her arms, her suspicious thoughts apparent in her body language. The sister seemed to be in close relations with the templars in the way that she addressed Alderic so directly. Thais listened as Deidre began to explain what she was indeed doing in the forest. Traveling alone? Thais found such an idea to be quite foolish. What possibly compelled a Chantry sister to do such a thing? Shifting her weight to one leg, Thais suddenly realized how exhausted her body felt. Her legs were use to walking but the rest of her wasn’t fit for the outdoors. The conversation of camping for the night seemed like pleasant thought and was most likely needed for the group.
As Deidre explained the campsite as if she was a hostess, a cynical look appeared on Thais‘s features. Was the sister use to allowing other traveling groups into her camp so easily? The mage scoffed rather abruptly as Deidre wrapped up her commentary, “I highly doubt any of us will be straying.” Thais gave a direct look towards Maddock. She was behind him so he did not see the look, but it was possible he felt it. It was obvious the woman was not concerned if her look or tone of voice was caught by the templars.
