Male was disappointed at being turned away, but respectfully kept his distance. A few moments passed as he looked around for another tree to nap in.
Then he heard the chattering of the animals. Malek could not make out all of the details, but he could tell that someone else was nearby and something about a giant spider. As far as he could make out, the spider was big, but not too big to cause alarm. He asked a raccoon specifically to go ahead and see what was up.
As it darted off in the indicated direction, Malek stretched and pulled up his left sleeve, his arm feeling sore. Massaging the muscles of his upper arm, his darkvision in full swing. He examined the recent tattoo on his left shoulder, the name of his love permanently inked in his arm.
A moment later, the raccoon returned and told him the situation. Malek tanked him, and told him where he could find some berries nearby. He rose and drew his elvish scimitars. Snow Leopard glowed slightly in his right hand as the moisture in the air crystallized around it. He set off, as quickly as he could without sounding like a barbarian on the warpath.
