Brenna shook her head at it once again. " Not a very good omen this is." She muttered as she went back downstairs maybe a nice warm cup of tea or something strong might help ease her frayed nerves too.
Kili gazed sadly at the bones. It wasn't the first time he had seen dead bodies well maybe the first time he had seen his so decomposed but not the first time he's seen death and certainly not the worst kind of death he'd witnessed thanks to the battle. He followed. Asphodel downstairs and saw her run into the spare bedroom. Kili remember that their burglar love tea when he was feeling uneasy so he decided to get one from Brenna too before going after Asphodel. He knocked gently on the door then came in to sit with hee, offering the cup. "I'm sorry. I wish you hadn't had to see that." Kili said softly. He hesitated for a moment, slowly putting his hand on her back to rub gentle circles. He wasn't sure gowbshe felt about that, so he moved gingerly in case she did not want to be touched right now.
Alicia turned to Thorin. " there's another lady I met caught out in the storm if she's downstairs and her name is Zaylara. Once she's warmed up and maybe has something to eat she might be able to tell us more or help us out." Alicia said and excused herself.
The human smiled sadly at Balin and Zaylara. Oh wait, she was still in dripping clothes too. "Uh, be right baxk." So she changed real quick before sitting with the other two. "Zaylara, this is Balin. He's a friend of mine too."
"Balin, this is Zaylara. She was caught in the storm with me and so I brought her with me." Alicia pursed her lips, and told them what had happened upstairs.

Fili followed everyone downstairs. The body affected him more than he would have liked. Not because he had never seen death before, but because it reminded him of the death he had just seen in Erebor. It was his and Kili's first taste of battle and the body had provoked uneasy memories of it. Fili settled in the living area and stared at the fire in the fire place, not feeling right enough to speak.

Asphodel peered up at Kili, tears trickling down her cheek. "I've never seen... death before," she said timidly. "Is that going to happen to us if we stay here?" She flinched a little when he first put his hand on her back, but she didn't pull away. She felt comforted by the friendly gesture and in fact scooted closer to him.

Roy came out of the other room then, "where is Asphodel!" he demanded of everyone in the front room. When he noted that everyone but Kili and Asphodel was accounted for, his expression soured and he moved towards the other bedroom. But Thorin quickly moved to cut him off. "Don't even think of going in there," he warned. "In fact..." he looked at Dwalin. "I think this Hobbit needs some time apart. We managed to clean out and finish two more of the other houses today, he can stay in one of them for the night. Let's see how he does without companionship and without anyone to serve him."

Balin sat with Alicia and Zaylara, "I must admit I've never seen one quite as pale as you, lass," he said. "What can you tell us about this place?"

Zaylara tried to gather her thoughts before she spoke. She spoke slowly so they would not see her slightly fanged teeth. She worried about telling them she was a vampire, so she decided to lie, hoping none of them would know elves well enough. "I'm an elf," she said. "I don't know how I got here, I've been here for perhaps a week. I found myself in the mountains and made my way here following the river. I am from a land called Faerun..."

Kili shook his head. " NO." He said vehemently. " We will much more careful than that. Don't worry, will all be looking out for each other here." Kili heard Roy demanding for Asphodel and glared at the door, ready to pounce at it and slam it in oy's face. That is, until his uncle stepped in and at that moment too, Kili wa regaining hope for his uncle. He was starting to think less about gold and more about what's really important. HE turned back to her and offered another smile. " IT's not an easy thing to look at. The first time i ever had to see it, well I nearly gagged, probably would have if I had the time for it."

Dwalin stood near Roy, escorting him and making sure he understood what 'stay away from her or else' meant.

"Faerun.." Alicia muttered. she had never heard of faerun, but she never heard of Middle earth either being on the island chains. So much for getting extra clues on what's going on. Alicia's shoulders slouched. But Balin did have a point at how ale she was. Maybe she might get some color back later? Alicia looked at Balin then. He was actually pretty pale of a guy too. She mused in her head.

Asphodel looked at Kili. "What was it like?" she asked hesitantly, not wanting to pry. "What you saw?"

After Thorin and Dwalin escorted Roy to his new home in one of the other fixed up houses, Thorin came back inside and saw Fili staring at the fire and sighed. He looked at Dwalin. "I... I made some mistakes with my nephews, didn't I, Dwalin... I made some mistakes with a lot of people."

Zaylara looked at Balin. "All my people look this way," she said. Balin wasn't quite buying it. "I've seen plenty of elves, lass, they might be a little on the pretty side for my tastes but they are certainly not as pale as you. Don't be afraid to share your identity with us, we won't toss ye out unless ye want to become violent."

Zaylara took a deep breath. "I... my people are called the Kutmyres. We're... vampires. I am used to being feared, my people did some terrible things... that's why I felt I had to lie about what I am."

Fili sat still, staring into the fire as scenes of battle and death, screams and blood filled his thoughts.

Kilimulled it over, just how much was a good idea to share with her. He told her the gist of it all, leaving out a few details that might be too gory. He cleared his throat and thought he'd try out his own story telling skills on Asphodel. when he was done he looked back to her. " So...How's my talent at weavin tales?" he smiled.

Dwalin sighed as he leaned against the wall. " Aye ya did. but firstly, no one ever expected you to be perfect to begin with. That's was just nonsense. Secondly, you weren't really bad until we got back the mountain, and that 'great and jealous love' took over you."

Brenna frowned at Zaylara, wondering suspiciously about her. Even if this woman didn't mean any harm, what if her 'people' do and they come find her?

Alicia hid her smile. She may not have such a terrible people, but she still counted it as a victory when Balin was able to call Zaylara out and not Alicia. The human secretly congratulated herself. "It takes guts to admit somethin like that. And I agree. So long as you man no harm to us, it doesn't matter the history of our heritage here."

Asphodel watched him closely while she listened intently to his story. She smiled when he finished. "Dragons and Lakemen and trolls and goblins..." she gasped. "You're so brave to have gone through all of that. And Master Baggins? I've heard of him. Bag End is around the corner from us. We saw him in the market all the time. We had wondered where he had gone off to, it was rumored he was dead."

Fili came out of his thoughts and glanced over to see the suspicious look on Brenna's face as she listened to Zaylara. He stood up and came over to her. "Quite a sight up there, isn't it?" he pointed out.

Thorin sighed. "how... do I begin to make amends with them? Have I lost their trust? I can't say I'm quite over the gold lust but... it is slowly fading."

Zaylara nodded to Alicia. "I promise I mean no harm," she said. "I have never been able to accept my people's evil ways. It's made me something of an outcast, I'm afraid."

Kili chuckled. " Dead? no. certainly not dead. He's very much alive and well...well...I hope he still is. I didn't get to see him before we vanished on this land. We should start a pipe weed garden and call it Boggins's garden. Our burglar loved his pipeweed and tea. And bacon."

Brenna nodded slowly. "Yes. it was. I've hear stories about vampires. Though the ones I've been told were just giant bats. But they were smarter than teh norm, even rumored to be able to shapehift to people. And they loved blood."

"They're angry, and unsure of what to make of you still, but they love you still." Dwalin said. "So there is hope still to make amends." The warrior said in blunt honesty.

"Well, what do you say we call it night?" Alicia looked between Zaylara and Balin. "Zaylara if you'd like to stay with us, we can find a talent you're good at to help our little town thrive."

Dwalin pushed off the wall. and for good measure he locked all the widows and doors. no critters or Roys coming in tonight! " Come. I am weary and in need of rest meself." The warrior said to Thorin. " See you in the morning."

Thorin nodded, "this should be the last time we have to camp out in the living room and leave the private rooms to the younger ones," he said. "We'll clear out the three upstairs bedrooms and then we will have a five bedroom home."

Fili saw everyone was getting ready to turn in for the night. He'd enjoyed picking on Brenna and getting a rise out of her, and he wanted to believe that perhaps somewhere deep down, she enjoyed it too. But Fili knew how to be serious too. "Well that girl seems relatively harmless," he said. "Besides, we'll be ready if she tries anything." He couldn't resist one last smart mouthed joke and added, "besides, I don't think dwarf blood tastes all that great." He smirked. "You and the girls can have the room Roy vacated. I'll camp out here until my brother is done in there."

Zaylara nodded to Alicia, "I am quite tired," she said. "Oh and as for skills. Well, I suppose I know more than I should. I was born an upsilon. That is... someone who... entertains... but in a specific way." She wondered how that news would be received. Balin blushed a little red with embarrassment when he understood just what kind of 'entertainment' she was referring to.

"Ah lass," he mumbled sheepishly. If his beard could glow red with embarrassment, it probably would match the redness of his face. "Well... we'll definitely have to find you some other talents."

"Well," she said. "I enjoy healing. I taught myself apothecary and anatomy. But... it is forbidden for me to learn anything other than the upsilon trade but... I learned in secret."

Unfortunately for Fili, Asphodel and Kili managed to talk all night. Fili eventually fell asleep out in the front room with Thorin and the others. Asphodel, meanwhile, giggled. "A tea and smoke garden," she said. "I know how to make smoke weed. I'll be happy to make some for you." And the two of them swapped stories until the wee hours of the night.

Alicia wasn't sure what exactly Balin was blushing about until it finally caught her too in a 'specific way'.
"That won't be necessary no. But that healing skill you mentioned? That'll be excellent." Alicia escorted Zaylara to one of the bedrooms for her to sleep in. Before she went to bed, she smirked at Balin's blush and playfully left a peck on his cheek. She was beginning to really like teasing and joking with him.

Kili was not aware of the time until they had both started slurring in their words and nodding off. oh mahal they had stayed up al night talking! maybe Thorin will allow him to take a nap in the afternoon?

Brenna side glanced at Fili before she turned in for the night. She was even beginning to like this flirty dwarf. Valar forbid she ever show it any time soon or she'll never hear the end of it.

Asphodel ended up talking until she ended up falling asleep right there on the bed.

Balin bid Alicia a good night and then ended up making himself comfortable on the floor with Dwalin, Thorin, and Fili. Sleeping on the floor didn't bother the old dwarf anyway, after all, how else could the entire company have slept in Bag End? If they had slept in, Bilbo would have awakened the next morning to a sea of snoring, bearded lumps, all sprawled out over every inch of his floor.

The next morning, they were greeted to rooster crowing and sun shine.

Brenna threw an old shoe at the rooster from the window. " shut up."
Alicia woke up laughing at her.
"You shut up too."
"Stop saying shut up or I won't be able to!" Alicia grinned.
"Cease from the noise comin' out of yer mouth then." Brenna replied.
Kili woke up, actually in a good mood, ready for the day to get started, mostly because he wanted to spend more time with Asphodel.
Dwalin snored on the ground. He was actually pretty hard to wake up.
Kili helped Brenna and Alicia start up a breakfast. they had agreed to let Asphodel sleep in and they make the first meal for a change.
"I think I'll get my brother to help fix up the animals hoes today." Kili said.
"I'll go see about sarting some textiles for us to work with." Alicia added.
"I'm going to the river. Might see if I can catch us some fish. we're runnign low on drinkign water anyway. When the other lasses are up we can all go take a bath too." Brenna added

As the boys slept in, things in the house started to move just slightly. A tap here, a door creaking there, nothing too unusual just yet.

When Asphodel came out of her room, she felt happy. She felt as though all the tension had been lifted off of her shoulders. She smelled breakfast and came out. "It smells delicious in here." She noticed the pile of dwarves in the corner sleeping and smirked as she looked at Kili. "I'm sorry your brother had to sleep out here tonight with all the snoring," she said. Then she remembered. "Oh, we have to check on our sow!"

Zaylara came out next, "does anyone need help around the farm today?" she asked. She wanted to make herself useful. She was a healer but there wasn't exactly anything to heal just yet. "I know a little animal healing as well."

Thorin, Balin, and Fili all lay crowded around Dwalin, snoring up a storm.

"We'll just get started on the day, let the guy catch their rest." Alicia drank up her tea.

Brenna rose her brows. " A sow you say? Now that was a lucky find. We best get started then. We'll want to have a full crop and then some for the winter. I imagine it won't be easy even if we are fully stocked. "
"ten four." Alicia agreed and pulled on her shoes to get ready. Brenna and Alicia weaved around the sleeping dwarves quietly.
"Don't know how they're not waking themselves up with those bellowing snores." The gnome grumbled as they left.

Asphodel nodded as she ate her breakfast, "a pregnant sow. We should have at least eight piglets. Now if we can find ourselves a cow and a few goats, I could make cheese. And my seedlings should start to come in soon, I planted wheat and barley in the fields but harvest season isn't for another month or so." She thought about sheep too, but she didn't want to be forced to ask Roy for any favors. All they needed were a few ewes and perhaps a ram and they would have wool and a healthy supply of wool and lamb.

"I'll help you check on your sow," Zaylara said to Asphodel. "We should make sure she is comfortable. And, do you have a medical herb garden so I can make my apothecary potions? I'd like to be prepared if any of us, animal or otherwise, become ill or injured."

At that moment, Fili woke up and yawned. He slowly got up and wandered over to them. "It smells nice in here," he mumbled, still a little groggy from having just woken up. "I'm famished!" He smirked. "I wonder how Roy handled his first night without anyone to order around."

Brenna and alicia had made it to the iver where they saw some rams and a few female goats. They decided they'd try to catch one. ubt it proved harder then theyd expected. Brenna almost got trampled y one and Alicia nearly fell in the water. they'd use a herding and snagging method. it took them a couple of hours but eventually they got two beofre they need to catch ther breaths. they took them back to the house.
"These are some of the most stubborn and crankiest animals i have ever dealt with!" Brenna yelled out.
Alicia had a tired smile on. " but it was worth it! we got a couple of goats now and we'll catch more if we can."
Kili stuffed his face in breakfast and helped clean it up. he quickly went out to go see how asphodel is doing. " oh the sow looks like she'll pop any second now." the dwarf smiled. " everyone can have a pet piglett." he joked.
"I want a pet hyena!" ALicia joked back.
Alicia looked at Thorin, dwalin and balin still sleeping. she took a strip of and placed a peice each on their noses. since dwalin was having critter trouble she grabbed seem of the skinned animal fur from before, balled it up to make it look like another animal was sleeping with him.
she found a rag doll and put it next to Thorin. and then hid Balin's shoes. she loved to prank every once in a while. " I say we even walk around in the men's outfits for the fun of it." Alicia joked " Brenna snorted in bemusement. " and talk all gruff like we're trying to be them? does that mean they have to ty tp be women then?"
Alcia chuckled at the thought with Kili who mock pouted. " I look handsome in anything mind you." kili joked.

Asphodel knelt by the sow who lay in her pen eating some slop the hobbit had given her. She smirked at Kili. "Well I'm afraid we may not be able to have pets for awhile," she said. "The piglets will need to be raised for meat. But if we can find a male pig, we would be able to build up our animal numbers and then perhaps we can have pets." Asphodel sighed, "although personally, I would love a red fox. I love foxes." She stood up and came out of the pen and looked at him. "What animals do you like?"

Fili got to work on his things for the day. He cleared the upstairs rooms of the dead remains and started repairing the upstairs flooring and stone work.

Thorin woke up and saw the rag doll, grumbling slightly to himself as he ate some breakfast and got straight to work for the day. He had a growing list of things he needed to forge. Pots, pans, farm tools, etc. Fortunately, he found a shed full of iron, tin, copper, and a number of other metal ores, along with plenty of stone for Fili and some wood for Kili. The people of this village seemed to have thought of everything.

Balin got up and searched everywhere for his shoe. He was amused by Alicia's joke, but he wagged his finger at her. "now, now, Lassie," he scolded, though he had a bit of a smile. "Not good playing tricks on an old warrior."

Zaylara checked on all the animals. The goats Alicia and Brenna had found. She also took the liberty of checking on Roy's sheep. Roy had a ram and three ewes. THe hobbit protested wildly, saying Zaylara was interfering in his domain, but he was ignored.

With the goats Alicia and Brenna found, their little farm was growing. They now had sheep, goats, pigs, and some chickens.

"Hmm.." Kili tapped his chin. " well, I think my favorite is a hawk or a dog." The archer smiled. "Heh male pig? Sounds like that might be a challenge. male pigs, especially boars, are dangerous."
Kili helped Asphodel. "Maybe My brother and I can set up a fox trap, and you might be able to train it as a pet. Wanna try?"
"Oi fili! let's see if we can nab ourselves a fox. The younger the better. Asphodel here can have a wee companion." Kili hollered to Fili.

Dwalin went to work helping Thorin get a few pots and pans and the like ready. He also got a few glasswork pieces done. The warrior wanted to get some vial, or bowls and such that might be useful for Zaylara's medical supplies. " I just realized too, we don't have a healer's wards set up at all. We ought to set up one of the extra homes for that..." Dwalin grumbled out loud. "What do you think brother? Set up a healer's place here or in one of the other homes?" He turned around to look at Balin. " While you're at it, I could use some new soles for my boots." He smiled.

Alicia giggled, feigning an innocent smile. "Oh really? Why's that? You go' beat me up?" she joked with the 'old warrior'.

Brenna made a checklist of all the livestock and things that they had. "Mm, yes. We are on a pretty good start."

Another big bout of rain came on. This one lasted so long the that river had started to flood up. Brenna looked outside. " That river is getting high..." she said in concern, but then she smiled. " who's up for fishing and game trapping?"

"What? out in the rains?" Dwalin looked up incredulously.
"Of course! we'll catch us some good fish if we set up the nets!" Brenna said already getting up and ready. Alicia was up to join in the opportunity.
Brenna put back on her boots. "maybe even get us some duck or geese! Come on let's not waste the chance!"
dwalin shook his head. " no no no. I'll stay here, working on my own trade here, where it is dry."
Kili looked at asphodel. "Are you up for rain fun?" he smiled and scooted a little closer. " or we could keep each other warm?" he said in a lower voice next to her, is hand on top of hers.

Fili heard Kili from the upstairs bedroom, as the window was opened and he nodded, "Okay brother!" he shouted. He heard Alicia and Brenna mention the river in the rain, "ah wait up then!" he shouted, hurrying down the stairs. He smirked one of his charming smiles. "You'll need the company of a dwarven warrior. You never know what might be there."

Zaylara walked by Dwalin when he mentioned setting up a house for her and she looked at him as if he had just said the best thing ever. "I... I would have my own house of healing?" she repeated. "I... I've always wanted this."

Balin nodded. "Go on and join the young ones, Lass," he told Zaylara.

Asphodel looked at Kili, "well we need to make more pigs, of course. Really all we need to add to our farm now would be some cows and perhaps a pony or two." She listened to him talk about hawks. "You seem like the wolf type," she said. "Brave, sensitive..." She blushed when he got close to her and felt a little fluttering within the pit of her stomach as she gazed up at him. "I do like fun," she said. "And warmth..."

Thorin stayed behind in the house with Balin and Dwalin while the younger ones among them hurried off to enjoy themselves at the river. He turned to his most trusted companions when they were alone. "They are enjoying this," he said. He had noticed how close Kili was getting to the hobbit girl. He didn't know what to make of that just yet. "What do you make of the two of them Balin? Dwalin?" "Ah," Balin said. "To be young."

Not far away, Roy was taking shelter in another abandoned house feeling angry. That dwarf was stealing his girl and there seemed to be little he could do about it. All he thought about at the moment was revenge.

brenna smirked and roled her eyes at Fili. " i suppose we could use your strength. well come on then, warrior, and let's see how well ya do with fishing!" she lde the way out the door.

dwalin cast a look over at Zaylara. he rememeber she had to do healing in secret, it made him a little sad about that. healing was so important and a geat industry. everyone should be allowed to do it. he would continue working on it while they were gone.
" ah yes, the wolf. i heard you could train those like dogs too. Oh we should catch a wolf too Asphodel!" he joked. he had taken her hand to hold as they went to the river. " This ought to be fun too. I have not had fish in so long."

Dwalin watched asphoel and Kili. " i think they make a nice cuople." the warrior said to thorin's question. ' and if I'm not mistaken, fili has the same eyes for Brenna. the gnome too is starting to feel the same way, though she is slower to admit it. I think it is good and to let them enjoy their fun. mahal knows how long we might be here."
it was fun, down by the river. they had set up nets and traps, runnig nthis way and that to catch the fish. kili stayed near asphodel, bu then he heard her cry and start limping. " oh no. what happened?! he demended. he saw somwthing slither away. " sanke?....Snake!" he yelled he raced over to zaylara with asphodel in his hands. " its a snake bite!" he yelled in worry.
Alicia got swept away in the current, bouncing along some of the rocks or mud and earning a few gashes. by the time she pulled herself out of the water she was exhuasted and shivering bu smiling. "that was intense."

Brena looked at Fili when she saw him sneezing. " you alright there?" she asked in concern. but fili didn't stop till after a while. " let's take what we can and call i off for the eve." she said.

They gathered up supplies, but kili had already taken off back t othe house with Asphodel in his hands and Zaylara in tow. the last three dragged back their earnings back.
Alicia helped clean the fish wih brenna, brenna had fili sit down and warm up. " perhaps you might need to take it easy for the next day till you're not so under the weather." she said to him.
Alicia looked at her gashes, coming inside to dry off into warm clothes.

Thorin nodded, "I suppose..." he murmured. "I just worry... if we were to ever to return to Erebor... they would be forced to leave their new relations. Afterall, would either of them give up their lives in the Shire or the Gnomelands to live among dwarves? As princes, Fili and Kili have duties to Erebor."

Asphodel had been walking through the grass with Kili, enjoying his company. "Foxes and wolves," she said. "Oh and I must cook dinner tonight if we catch fish. I love roasted river trout with fresh vegetables-" she didn't hear the hiss right away but she felt sudden pain shoot through her leg as she stumbled forward. She let out a cry of pain and surprise. A large colorful snake slithered away after having done its damage. "Oh..." she gasped, sitting down in the grass. The pain was getting overwhelming fast, it filled her senses. "My... my leg... it hurts..."

Meanwhile, the rain did and moist tropical air did not mix well for Fili. He had woken up that morning feeling a little stuffed up but had chosen to ignore it, but now his lungs felt heavy and tight and he coughed and sneezed. "I need to work," he told Brenna as he followed her back to the house. But this sickness, whatever it was, came on suddenly. He was developing chills too, even though it was hot and muggy outside.

Thorin hurried over when the young ones returned and he felt concerned for Fili. And by this time, Asphodel was in a lot of pain and her leg was very swollen. She whimpered and moaned in pain.

Balin helped get the wounded together for Zaylara. "Alright Lassie," he said as he helped Alicia. "Not to worry we'll get you all fixed up."

Zaylara sprung into action the moment Asphodel had gone down. The first rule of medicine was to always assess who was in more immediate need and who was not. A snakebite could be poisonous and the poison could spread to the heart. Fili seemed to be developing a virus of some sort, possibly influenza. Alicia had a few pretty rough looking gashes which didn't seem serious, except that infection could certainly set in and cause many complications.

"Its going to be okay," she assured her three patients as she opened up her kit, a handy medical kid she carried around with her everywhere, and also, grabbed some herbs from the garden.

Asphodel whimpered in pain and gripped Kili's hand while Zaylara hurried around mixing things. A paste made out of echinacea plant and bentonite clay was draped over the two swollen holes in Asphodel's leg. "This should draw out the poison," Zaylara told Kili. "We have to get all of it. It could turn to gangrene and then more serious complications would occur, like having to remove the leg or it could even kill her. But if she is calm and this salve does its work, she should recover." Zaylara also gave Asphodel some anti-venom medicine.

Fili Meanwhile, lay on the couch, shivering even though it was hot. He was pale and he had a really bad cough. Zaylara listened to his lungs. "His lungs are full of fluid," she said. "I think he's caught a bough of the flu. Be careful, it can be contageious, but he needs to rest." "I..." Fili gasped. "I have work to do." Zaylara gave Brenna some instructions. "Tea with ginger, lemon, cloves, and some lavendar and chamomile to help him rest," she said. "Don't let him get off this couch."

Zaylara then came to Alicia, the girl with whom she felt the closest to on this planet so far. She smiled at her and assessed her injuries. She washed the wounds out with soap, hot water, and a little alcohol. Thanks to the dwarves, there were a number of flasks of ale stashed away in their pockets, no doubt intended for use on the battlefield. Zaylara finished cleaning the wounds and then started stitching the skin up. "Sorry it must sting," she said gently. "Almost done."

Kili stayed near Asphodel, holding her hand still and watching in worry. he forced a smile on his face. "Won't be too bad. we'll just draw out the poison." he turned to his brother too, equally worried. " OI! The healer said you stay in that bed! Work can wait still." He looked next to Zayalara. "My brother is going to be okay too right?"

Dwalin stood up to help. he kept pushing Fili back to the bed. " stay in that bed boy before I throw you in it and knock you out." He also looked at Zaylara, impressed at how well she jumped to her feet. he nodded his head in approval at it. " let me know what ya need lass an' I'll help ya."

Alicia smiled up at Balin, she held up her hands to strike a muscular pose. "Nothing but beauty marks." Alicia joked. she saw Zaylara approach and smiled encouragingly to her. " good thing we have you around too." She tried to keep her smile on as the alcohol began to flow. one eye twitched. " nope, warriors don't cry over spilled drink right Balin?" SHe liked to use humor to relief stress or tense situations.
Brenaa rushed over to also help Fili. " i knew i shouldnt have let you out there. You'd best rest up now before you push yourself beyond repair. You're a dwarf used to the rugged mountains, not the unpredictable waters."

Zaylara examined Fili more as he shivered on the couch. She glanced to Kili, "if he rests and takes care of himself, he should pull through just fine, but if he pushes it, he could develop pneumonia and that could be very dangerous." She thought about that. "We must all be careful. We have never been to this world before, we may be susceptible to diseases more. And be careful, Fili could be contagious." Fili shook his head, he felt hot yet cold at the same time and his chest felt so heavy. "I need to work on the houses," he said in a raspy voice as he looked at Brenna. "Kili and Uncle can't be expected to do it all while I lay here..."

Thorin came over then, draping a damp cloth over his nephew's forehead. "Rest, Fili," he said. He winced as the memory of Kili getting shot by an orc's arrow came to him and the pale look on his nephews face. He didn't see how sick Kili had been because he was so caught up in getting to Erebor, but now, he intended to take care of his nephews.

Balin smirked at Alicia, "ah lass nice to have a good spirit about it. Take it easy now. In fact, perhaps it's a good idea if all of us take a few days of rest. We've all been working hard and we certainly deserve the break."

Asphodel groaned in pain as she tried to keep her leg elevated as the paste began to absorb the poison in her leg. "It hurts..." she gasped, holding onto Kili's hand as tears streamed down her face. She'd never felt just intense pain before. Zaylara gave her some medicine to help with the pain and she became drowsy. Her eyes fluttered as she struggled to stay awake. "Kili..." she breathed. "I'm afraid..."

Brenna stormed up to Fili, pushing him back down. " Listen boyo, we are all going to take it easy for the next few days. You heard your elderly man, Balin. Your uncle and brother included. Now you best sit there and heal up. None of us want that turning into pneumonia." She grabbed a bowl of soup. " You need something warm to help your body fight back the sickness." She didn't want to admit that she was a little worried about this dwarf. The last thing he needed to be thinking was that he was falling behind any work that doesn't need to be done just yet.

Kili returned to Asphodel's side, taking her hand in his. He put his forehead against hers. " I know it hurts Del. Zayalara knows what she's doing though, she certainly sounds like it. Don't be scared, I'll be right here. Not leaving your side." He acted without really even thinking, but suddenly he hugged her tightly. " We'll do everything we need, just keep your foot elevated while the venom drains."

Alicia couldn't agree more with Balin, but she did wish there was something to do indoors. Though she is more inclined to take a nap right now. " Zayalara. you're amazing." She encouraged her friend. She wanted Zaylara to feel wanted and encouraged that she was dong a good job. She put a hand on the vampire's arm, not realizing that there was a bout of warm energy that flowed from her to Zaylara.
Then another idea came to mind. " Oh, if Fili and kili might still want to busy their hands, without doing anything too tedious, what about a chess and checkers board? Or star checkers, and backgammon. I can paint the boards and pieces." She added with a yawn. "And bed time." she mumbled as she curled up on a spare couch. "aaaand maybe I'll make some extra cushions and mattresses." with Kili and Asphodel being lover birds in one room and Fili now in quarantine in the other, Alicia was perfectly content with not being anywhere near them.
