"Rasha? Your sure?" Mally asked, her voice sounded panicked. Kyera sniffed the air then looked at the boy. The tint of green on his palm caught her attention. That acrid smell gave it away and a sense of urgency tickled in her stomach. The smell of putrid flesh rising in her memory again as she remembered the boy and the trap.
"Mally…" Kyera's warning tone silenced her friend. Mally tilted her head curiously but nodded all the same for Kyera to take the lead. There was a time to shut up and listen, the expression on Kyera's face hinted that this was one of those times. "take us to him." she turned to the boy, her voice sounded a bit like a order as she turned and began walking the direction he had been going in long strides so to maintain her dignity.
The boy quickly turned to follow, nearly breaking into a jog to get ahead of Kyera who seemed to be following some divine direction. Her movements were with purpose as if she had been here a hundred times before, but in all actuality it was her nose following the trail.They were headed for the Winter Garden, a rather beautiful evergreen garden that never failed to have pretty blooms. However it was a area Kyera had not entered yet. Alot of humans often frequented if not to mention predators. There were some prey to hunt. She had not been strong enough to hunt the large game she sensed within as of yet.
The smell of metal and acrid flesh caught her nose, and the boy was no longer needed. The girls could see the wounded beast laying in a growing puddle of blood. Mally froze, having not seen this level of destruction to a living creature before.
The dark furred lion was laying on his stomach as if he had collapsed there, with no energy to move on. The bloody whole in his side fairly deep, and oozing black blood. His flesh looked as though it had been torn away by a great pair of jaws. Kyera scoffed in disgust remembering the teeth of the bear traps that were used in the woods. It was a similar wound here.
The two unskilled medics were trying to clean the wound with water but the lion roared in pain as steam rose from the wound. Kyera shook her head. "Stop, your activating the acid more and it's burning through his skin." Kyera warned them lowering to her knees at the Lion's side heedless of the blood drenching her pretty dress.
Mally winced but did not correct her as Kyera ran her hand through the lion's chocolate main. "shhhh wild one, I am here." she whispered, allowing the shadows to form beneath her palm and pass into him, offering soothing energy.The lion laid back as she looked at the others.
"We have to clean the wound or the poison will do more damage." one of the girls replied glaring at Kyera who touched the Emperor's dearest pet so casually. Her whining was ignored by the tigress who had now moved into healer mode. They may as well have tried to argue medicine with a wall.
"Help me get him on his side. Mally, go find Aggie in the square tell her I sent you. Bring back 4 vials of antidote. Tell her the Poison we discussed has struck at the palace." Kyera replied tossing her a jewel from her ear. "that should pay for it."
Mally didn't ask questions, she ran. Kyera continued soothing the lion as she looked over the wound. It was deep, but not fatal, the poison however would be. She began gently removing any dirt or grass in the wound, before reaching for her side. She froze and sighed remembering the fairy water cantine wasn't there. It had been dropped when the net caught her. This was not going to be easy to do with both the remedy and the fairy water, but without the water it was going to be almost impossible."Damn" she murmured as she wiped her hair from her sweaty face.
