I tap her on the nose and tell her. "I am not staying up half the night.  I want a good bit of rest before you try to get us killed.  And remember, I'm not the noisy one."

I blush slightly at her reprisal, turning away slightly, "I'll try to be quiet, if you promise to be good.  I can't stay very quiet when you're trying to find ways to make me squeal or cry out, sis.  And a good night of rest will be appreciated in the morning."  I smile to her and turn back towards the inn, linking arm in arm.

"If you make noises, it isn't going to be my fault.  For that, I'm not doing anything to you tonight, at all." I tell her with a sniff, linking my arm and heading toward the inn as well, content to follow along, as per normal.

She will note that, with even the tiniest bit of investigation, that there is a druid's grove, on the opposite bank of the river, tended to by a younger, half-elven druid who manages the grove and the surrounding area, keeping the evils of the Witchwood at bay. It's the nearest bit of unfarmed or urban landscape, for quite a ways.

She spotted it at once. The grove called to her as clearly as the birds called to each other in the spring. The pair became still as they both walked silently together toward it. They crossed the river with no trouble at all, dripping a trail of water behind them when they reached the other side. A calm came over Aerynnel as they entered the sacred place. She closed her eyes as she walked, listening to the singing of the trees and smiled blissfully, as Lakota trotted off to greet the tending druid nearby.

I smile a bit as we wander into the taproom of the inn, heading directly to the innkeeper with a nod.  "One room, single bed, sir, and two dinners with wine, if you would?"  I look to Caline, shrugging a touch before sliding a number of silver pieces across the counter to him.  Enough for the room and the meals with a touch left over for a tip.  It seemed to be a reasonable enough place, at least, and the food smelled good.  The others appeared to have found their way here, it seems.  With that, I escort Caline to a table where it seems most of the rest of the 'party' have gathered.

"Welcome to the grove, sister," the man calls, softly, as she enters, plucking free a small flower from his herb garden. "How fares the journey? And, please, make yourself at home, here."

Tahline

"Room's on the house," he says. "Captain sent word ahead. If you're good on your word, you'll be able to stay whenever ya like... these bandits have been terrible for business. We'll have those dinners right out for you, fresh mutton stew, and a good rye bread, from the Sanderson's harvest."

I follow sis, smiling faintly.  It was best that she was taking care of funding, I thought.  That way we wouldn't need to constantly ask whom had how much in the way of funds.

Aerynnel broke from her reverie upon hearing the man's voice. Home is indeed what this felt like. She could feel her energy replenishing even as she stood there. A courteous nod is all she offered the man before heading off to find a place to rest, Lakota tagging along closely beside her.

They found a dense bed of leaves surrounded by some saplings that almost looked like something out of a dream, and when she lie down upon it, her body fully relaxed. Undisturbed by any nightmares, she slept soundly perhaps for the first time in her life.
