|He was only mildly reassured when she came back to earth (well, figuratively speaking), her gaze resolidifying and accepting Rill's invitation. Endless was, for the moment, too distracted with relief at her well-being to think about returning to the fairy's home. Besides, it was just to take shelter from a storm, so it couldn't be that bad, right? Then Rill stretched and his clothes rode up on him, and Endless gulped. He hoped it wouldn't be that bad.|
He was surprised though, when Tehodis took his wrist. And when she echoed to him a similar set of thoughts that he'd been thinking. Endless had been concerned with the idea of staying because he'd been worried about Tehodis - he still wanted to make sure she got home safe, that she was alright. But now she was telling him that she wanted to stay here, too...
He pondered for a moment why he cared so much. Why did it matter to him so much that Tehodis was happy and safe? He barely knew her. It'd been only an hour or so... but somehow that felt longer now. Endless wondered if maybe it wasn't just time in the feywild that was accelerated compared to Fortuna, but if maybe your experiences could feel accelerated as well. He wondered if even though he and Tehodis had only been together for a short time that maybe to them they were feeling more like companions of several hours.
He smiles at her reassuringly, moving his wrist out of her grasp and instead taking her hand in his to give it a comforting squeeze. He's not usually one for any kind of physical intimacy, but Tehodis almost seems childlike at the moment, and he feels the action appropriate.
"If you want to stay, that's fine with me. To be honest, I was thinking the same thing. I wouldn't mind sticking around for a while. You know, as long as another of those floating blizzard balls doesn't come trying to kill me again," he adds with a chuckle.
Rill calls after them, and Endless looks back up at their new friend, patiently waiting for them to start following him. He gives the fairy a nod before looking back at Tehodis. "Let's go, yeah?"
And with that he takes a leap off of his mushroom, pulling Tehodis with him - she's light, extremely light, and Endless finds that he can even manage to pull her along with him with his powers without much additional strain, not as long as he keeps holding her hand the way he does. They soar into the sky of the feywild, following after an amused-seeming Rill.
