Caiden confirmed this with a slight nod, though he did subtly glance in Percula's direction with mild annoyance only she could read in his eye - though she also could tell he had fully expected something like this.
So all he got in reply was an innocent - well slightly mischievous - grin.
"We've been traveling together for a while now," he clarified for Agethar's sake, though he left it at that.
"Really?" Agethar said, raising an eyebrow "Because he hasnae told me about ye.”
Saffron shrugged, lounging in her seat. “Well have you ever held a conversation with him?” She asked teasingly, nudging Caid. “It’s a miracle if I can get him to open up. Much less someone like you.” The pixie pointed out with a completely, totally innocent smile.
"It is understandable an' all, with me nae seein' him fer a while." he elaborated quickly "I heard that ye and some others went off tae Artorius tae deal wid some mages o' some sort: I would'ave gone wid ye, but I was on a mission at th' time, and didnae hear about it until it was too late."
Percula blinked, a few particularly unpleasant flashbacks coming to mind before she shook her head slightly. “Oh, well, uh…” She glanced at Caiden briefly. “You didn’t miss much.” The pix- ahem, elf, reassured him, leaning against Caid a little. “There were sooome… unpleasant thingies. And stuff. Y’know, the usual with dealing with evil mages, right?” Saffron went on with a grin.
