As Ciprian and his companions rode away from the bridge, Ciprian kept glancing over his shoulder to make sure the obnoxious wizard hadn't followed them. He didn't know how well he could handle it if she persisted. Fortunately, there was no sign of her.

About twenty minutes into their trip, Ciprian had calmed enough to begin Cian's riding lessons. The boy's horse was trailing behind his own, as far as it's lead rope allowed it. "Cian, I want you to ride your horse up alongside mine. Just give him a little tap on the ribs with your heels," Ciprian instructed.

Carianna rode on the other side of the knight, a little farther back. She listened intently. Carianna could ride a horse, but not to any level of expertise that compared to a knight. So she simply listened in on the lesson...

Cian spoke a bit nervously but did as Cip instructed, after a moment the Filly moved up alongside Cip's own horse. The boy's eyes were wide with excitement and he turned glancing in Cip's direction speaking with all the warmth and joy of a child that had accomplished something for the first time.

Riding a horse was never easy for Cian as his first few experiences had been painful falls, but this was different. Cip seemed to know what he was doing unlike the supposed horse masters Emir hired when the boy was under the slaver's yoke.

The ride was quiet but not smooth as the boy began to notice a soreness that developed into soreness that spread from his buttocks, to the lower part of his back to his thighs. It was the soreness and uncomfortable side-effect of a person that wasn't used to riding as horseback riding was something Cian was not prone to do often. The boy almost fidgeted and then spoke as muscles that he wasn't used to.

"Uhhh ow..ow.. Cip am I doing something wrong? My um...well...", Cian glanced back at the Cari and towards the Kylia and spoke as low as he could where Cip could still hear as he was sure Cip could hear. "Um..my arse is killing me. Could I...are we allowed to have cushions?"

Kylia rode away with them knowing the woman now forced to travel alone or find others, though she did not care of the woman died on the road. The crows would not even touch her, hearing Cian she chuckled a little knowing he was going through the basics.

"You'll eventually get used to it, if you have an extra blanket then that can be made into a makeshift cushion. It won't happen after a while, so bear with it and you'll be fine."

She would help him as much as possible, he was doing well for a first time rider though and she hoped that he would be able to keep up with them despire the pain. She was sitting up now and alert, before they left through the gates she had drank something that perked her up.

Ciprian smiled a little at Cian. He barely remembered when riding was painful for him, he learned how to ride when he was six, before he even enrolled as a squire. "Well, you can use a blanket, but it might not help much, You're still going to have to get used to it," Cip replied.

The knight looked over the mare Cian had chosen. "So, what are you going to call her?" the knight asked. "She'll probably be with you for many years to come, so you should name her."

Cian glanced at the dark elf and smiled, then turned in Cip's direction when the knight told him about the blanket. The boy would definitely use the blanket, he'd need to just for a little bit at least. When the subject of naming his horse came up, the former theif was totally dumstruck. "Well...uh..I..I've never named anything before..."

The child thought for a moment then spoke. "How about.. Reielle? What do you think? Is it a good name? I think she'll like it"

The boy rubbed the horses neck affectionately, the animal whined almost in appreciation which brought a smile to the young squire's face.

Kylia smiled as she watched Cian and the horse, he reminded her of her first time riding wyldfire. At least that rude woman was gone, now they could travel in peace.

"That's a beautiful name, fits her like a glove. Be sure to take good care of her, it helps with loyalty between horse and rider."

She laughed lightly, she looked to Ciprian afterwards and shook her head a little. She was bothered by something, it seemed important though she did not say it at the moment.

Carianna seemed to be left to herself. She didn't mind a lack of conversation towards her. It was actually kind of nice. Day in and day out, all she did was deal with people. Give arms to the poor, teach classes, lead prayers... There never was time for herself. Being selfish every once in a while was supposed to be a good thing, but Rada never blessed her with an opening for such things.

Left to her own devices, the priestess hummed a quaint little melody, following the beat of her horse's pace. While Carianna was not a world class singer, she did have a nice voice and was a popular choice for solos in the performance wing of the temple. A soothing soprano voice was hers to share on stage.

Ciprian smiled. "It does fit," the knight said. They had to continue with Cian's lessons as they rode. He wanted to make good distance from Roid to make sure the wizardess couldn't catch up. He'd teach Cian more when they camped. "I'm going to let you handle her now," Ciprian said as he untied the lead rope from his saddle horn. "If you need to slow down, tug on the reins a little. Be gentle, just a small, slow tug to slow her. Give the reins a sharper tug to stop her, but be mindful of her comfort."

Ciprian had removed the lead rope and handed the end to Cian. "Just wrap it around your saddle horn for now, but don't let it interfere with her movement."

Cian nodded and did as Cip instructed, the young boy spoke rather nervously but Reielle seemed to take everything in stride. After awhile he started to get the hang of it, the once theif now squire grinned broadly and spoke excitedly turning back to Carianna and then to Kylia almost unable to hold in his joy. "I'm doing it...she..she's rReielleesponding. This is so easy, I thought it was difficult before.. But...what do..I? I know they graze but what do horses eat besides...grass and grain? What do I feed her? I mean what else?"

It was a great responsiblity, and he'd take it seriously. The boy wanted to take the best of care of his horse and was determined to see
Reielle would have whatever she needed.

Carianna left the explanations to Ciprian. Instead, she just offered words of encouragement. "I've seen many a student learning the mounted arts, but none quite as natural as you, Cian," she said with a smile. Ok, so she hadn't actually seen tons of people learning to ride, but he certainly picked up on it faster than she had.

Kylia watched as Cian asked a flurry of questions and Ciprian tried to keep up, it was best that Ciprian did this part however. If needed she would lend a hand, but of course he needed to know this.

"If you need a hand just ask, looks like Cian is a fast learner but he's got alot of questions. Just let me know when you need it, I'll do my best."

She then rode on, they were headed into a dangerous spot. Chasing down a slaver was going to be difficult, perhaps this was what she needed to keep her skills honed.

Ciprian smiled as the women encouraged Cian. "Well, while we're on the road, we can let her graze for the most part, but she should get some grain too. Fruits and vegetables are good, so if you find any apples or carrots, she'll love them."

Kylia reached into a saddle bag and pulled out a small bag, moving up to Cian she handed it to him. She had enough to spare that one, it would help him.

"She should enjoy these, I bought them before I went to find you. I'm going to check on Carianna, she seems to be rather quiet."

She then moved back to where the priestess was, looking over to her she laughed a little. Her voice was good, given she could not carry a song.

"Beautiful voice, I thought you could use some company."

"I've never really left the city before," she said, looking up to the sky. "I'm already praying to Rada that all those that depended on me will be alright..."
