"You misunderstand, we have no proof you are who you say. We must be cautious." The leopardess chided gently but Kyera laughed, wich in her current form sounded quite malicious.
"Then I shall provide proof." with that Kyera turned her head to present her shadow crest for the woman to see. The earpiece still secure against her hair. The purple stones shimmered with power. As they looked at this, shadows began to dance into existence around Kyera's paws. The shadows seemed so serene and moved so slowly around her paws that one would think them docile. However every now and again one would lash just slightly quicker outside the circle, to remind of their hidden liveliness.
The Snow leopardess bowed as she realized exactly who Kyera was. The even seemed tense now as she stood. "Welcome Warrior Maid Kyera Shade of the Moon, and Prince Clovis of the Dancing winds. Forgive us for our customers for it is not our own fault trust was broken." The leopardess began formally. "I am Crystalsis Is the second greatest grand Niece of Our Lady Queen." the leopardess introduced herself as she stood at full height.
"Thank you for the Welcome Crystalsis. You will have to excuse my behavior. A Tigress doesn't like to be ignored." Kyera replied before she morphed back into human form. The furs and shadow cloth covering her body once again.
"Of course not, nor does a leopard." Crystalsis agreed and Kyera smiled now friendly.
"Clovis and I seek an audience with the old one, if I am still welcome here?" Kyera asked raising a elegant brow to go with that beautiful smile. Crystalsis nodded. There seemed to be a look of concern on her face as she looked Kyera over.
"Yes of course. Grand Aunt would love to see you. However… forgive me for asking, but are you not a skilled healer?" she asked and Kyera nodded, suddenly feeling off center. There was a look in this girl's eyes she had seen before. A sense of urgency and suppressed desperation.
"Yes, that I am. Is there something wrong with the Lady Queen?" Kyera asked suddenly a bit tense. Afterall, if the lady was ill she had no idea who would succeed her, and not to mention the power of the flower would die with her. The great tree tied to the very fabric of her existence. It would be devastating for the soul tree to die.
"No, though Grand Aunt is well into the third digit her health flourishes. Perhaps when your business is done you could take a look at someone for me?" Crystalsis asked carefully. It was as though she was timid despite the fire she had shown moments before.
"Of course, a healer never turns their back on someone in need." Kuera replied smiling softly. To Clovis's complete surprise she wove a arm gently around his waist. The amount of physical contact so openly was a bit of a shock. Yet he noticed some of the people seemed to look at them gentler. Even the guard seemed less annoyed and more surprised. It was pleasant to have so much tension disappear.
"I wish that was how all healers lived." Crystalsis sighed as she nodded at Clovis and the wild ones in acknowledgement. "I will take you to a palace room to clean up and get warm, then you will see Grand Aunt." she replied smoothly and Kyera nodded.
"That sounds very pleasant. Warmth has been lacking as of late, except what little we have between ourselves." Kyera replied smoothly. Her eyes looked up at Clovis filled with trust and love. His heart skipped a beat and he had to remind his body now was not the time.
"Follow me then." Crystalsis ordered before leading the way back through the crowd. Kyera followed without hesitation, Clovis only a step behind her. The sea of people seemed to part though they craned necks and lifted onto their toes to get a look of this foreign group. Whispers that the beauty was a tiger white as snow with stripes of moonlight spread fast.
