Mallorin didn't reply, she merely tugged him along, and then slunk back behind him, lifting her leg she booted him in the back roughly and pushed him ahead of her. Leashed as he was it would be hard to keep balance, but the Amazon was uncaring. "You will know when we get there.. twice the stars will pass." That is all she said as she preened her ears to listen to the Jungle.
It wasn't as if Mallorin was unfeeling, quite the contrary. She had been brought up as a Princess by her Mother Queen Sel'na and her trials had been laid out. To lead their people she had five trials to pass. The first of which was to bring home the enemy, a Man. The second of which, was to make him understand their way of life and respect it. The third of which was to make him ready to defend himself, if he died, she would be the one to blame. The fourth if he survived the first three was to be mated, and the fifth was to sacrifice him to the Goddess and pledge her faithfulness. It would be the testing of a lifetime, and even if she thought she was ready, Mallorin still had her own questions that had been unanswered.
A snap in the jungle made her pause, and she jerked him to a halt...wrapping the vine around her wrist she moved softly the buttery tanned animal hide boots making no sound as she went. Placing a finger to her lips for him to be silent...she prayed to the Goddess he would be.
