Upon being approached by a broad shouldered, red wayfarer, Anyu gave them her full attention. It was quite windy today and it seemed to have an effect on the stranger. Weather patterns in the mountains were always unpredictable and it was no fun to be caught up in a drastic change of climate. She would be glad to help them get out of the harsh weather.
[< There’s a small cave not too far down the hill. I’d be delighted to escort you there if you would like. >] Anyu bowed in return as she gave her reply, stepping closer to the wanderer so their energies could act as a heating source for them. They seemed quite polite and well mannered, which was a delight given that the cold could make anyones mood turn sour. Her curiosity towards the stranger was inevitably piqued.
[< Shall we hurry to get out of this dreary cold and snow? >]
What a polite girl. He bowed again. “Thank you so much, Miss. Your guidance is very nice of you.” He paused, looking foreward. He seemed old. Like an ancestor of the past, almost. But his robes were a rust red, and they stood out from the bright white snow. “I may need your help. I can hardly see.” He looked back to the wayfarer of a similar height but much smaller stature, bowing and staying in that position. “If it is not too much trouble, I’d love your assistance. I’m afraid I am a bit out of sorts lately.” He remained bowed until he recieved an answer.
Anyu nodded as the stranger thanked her. She was thinking of waiting in shelter for the weather to lighten up regardless. Better to be safe than sorry in the mountain range. [< It’s no trouble for me to help you find your way. I wouldn’t be able to accept just leaving someone in weather like this when they are lost and cold >] She spoke in a lighthearted and friendly tone, and she couldn’t help but be reminded of when she made it her personal mission to help wayfarers on their journeys in the mountains.
[< I won’t stray far from you, don’t worry. I’ll keep close so you won’t have to worry about being separated or getting too cold. >] Anyu then began to lead her companion down the slope in the direction of shelter. She was careful not to move to fast, the snow proved to be a bit of a hassle for most who were more used to sand.
The trek proved to be rather dull with the wind and snow whipping in front of their masks. She was glad that it kept the wind off her cheeks and the sting of snowflakes out of her eyes. She wold stop every now and then to make sure the other wayfarer was faring alright. Making sure that they were not too cold or too tired to continue.
[< We’re not too far off from the cave, it’s tucked into the mountains pretty well so the wind shouldn’t bother us. I hope I’m not going too fast for you, I tend to forget how accustomed to the wet snow and harsh cold I am. >] Anyu chirped towards the older stranger in a light tone, attempting to make their hike a little warmer and more exciting for them.
