                    From her nap sack she retrieved a flask of water and soaked her cloth with some of it. She continued to wipe herself free of blood. Her minds thoughts had detoured momentarily on her next actions. She would need to collect some wood, get a fire going. Onyx's pack was properly equipped of course for her leave and the key item in the pack was her magically imbued kimono. She pulled hissy fits when anyone got into her kimono collections not just because they were often the real deal but because they were augmented. Their value tripled to the right buyer. It's pockets acted as lockers. Weightless. It was how Onyx was able to carry so many weapons back in the day undetected. It was how she still got away with it. That being stated one could only imagine just how funny the scene about to unfold would be.

                    As Metal had himself a sit down and was slowly rolling up his pant leg, she had pulled out said kimono. She stuffed her hand into one of the pockets and then reached in deeper until the lip of the pocket reached up to her arm pit. She was searching. Suddenly she would pull out a rather thick roll of...fabric? It was bound in rope. Untying it she unrolled it. It was of course a floor mattress. Classically Japanese in it's origin. I mean if you no longer had to sleep on a lumpy ground or in a tree why would you right?

                    That was when she heard Metal's voice. "Hey..." and she turned to him when he called.
                    "A little help?" Her brows lifted as her ears shifted back in the slightest. Yes she was a little surprised. It wasn't something she was use to hearing come out of his mouth. She didn't make any remarks towards it and that was something that would have been very typical of the usual Onyx. She too was still human of course and as such, she held more ... compassion. More emotion in general. Instead she went over to him with her kimono and flask in hand.
                    "Yeah, sure no worries." she said as though it wasn't anything out of the ordinary.

                    Kneeling beside him now she helped to roll up his pant leg but stopped. She shook her head. Metal had sustained a cut to his thigh. Rolling up the pant leg would do nothing.
                    "Stop." she gently pushed his hands out of her way as if to say: no touch. Only me.

                    Both hands to the fabric onyx gave a hard tug. The fabric beneath her fingers gave out a quick sharp scream as it ripped open more. This caused the wounded area to be further exposed. Exactly what Onyx needed. Reaching into her kimono she produced a familiar box known by some as her personal first aid kit. Onyx focused and went to work on patching Metal up first by cleaning the area. After a few minutes of doing this in silence (which felt very awkward to her) she spoke to break the silence. That feeling he had always given her was far less potent now that Metal was no longer a vampire. Had he been a vampire in this very moment, she would be incredibly nervous to be out here alone with him. This new feeling was actually quite dangerous. A false sense of security was a surefire path to utter devastation.

                    "I'll collect some wood and get a fire going once i'm done here. I think I have a tiny sewing kit somewhere's in there." she said giving a nod in the direction of her kimono. "The best I can do is at least stitch the rip...unless of course you happened to bring a change of clothing with you." the chuckle she gave spoke of doubt. "I didn't/don't plan on returning to the ship tomorrow..." she said as her way of explaining how and why it was she seemed to be so well equipped. It dawned on her that perhaps, he had somehow known all of this. It was too creepy to bear. She pressed on.
                    "so...we could always see what that thing tastes like...cause I didn't pack enough food for two. I ... I am making my leave for Samara tomorrow, after I finish exploring these forests a bit. Um...nothing exciting to be sure...but your welcome to come if you want..." she shrugged off her own invited to make it all seem so casual. She put the finishing touch on the tape that would secure the gauze that lay over the wound. She then got to wrapping the leg with a roll of bandage.
Sitting there he watched as the woman began to reach down...way down into the pockets of one of her dresses, his brow raised a bit before turning back to his leg as he continued to roll the fabric back, exposing more of the wound to the open air before feeling her presence next to him. Looking up he stared for a moment as she rested down beside him, lightly pushing his hands away he just leaned back. His long raven like hair flowed back along the back of his shoulders and down to the ground, his pant leg had stopped being rolled up until he watched her rip the fabric up to his thigh. He wanted to say something, and maybe the vampire would have, had he been a vampire but for now Metal just sat there watching and waiting as she began to clean the wound. While she was placing the gauze over the wound she began to speak about patching the rip she had just made with a sewing kit, a small shake came from him as he thought about it. "No that's fine." He spoke looking down at the ripped legging he was wearing. "I'll be alright." He nodded and listened as she also spoke about gathering supplies for tonight, it was weird that she'd be so concerned with his feelings for the moment something that was weird no doubt. "Mhmm...And I'll take first watch." He said reaching around to the sword's hilt and while gripping it he began to pull himself up from the ground the wrapping along his leg was tight, it was done very well and he was quite pleased. After all it would be harder to do so by himself. "Thanks." He spoke and then limped to the tree that she had been at, slowly he turned and leaned back pressing his back against the tree before slowly sliding down the tree and staring forward, sword leaned against his shoulder while his right arm draped over the blade, and his right wounded leg was pulled close to him. He just waited now, watching her as she began to go about gathering. "No...I don't think I want to try that..." He pointed and smirked almost chuckling a bit as he thought of the very idea.

                    She wasn't too sure whether or not she ought to be unnerved by the fact that Metal had failed to say anything, in regards to her statements of not returning to the ship and being invited. Metal didn't want the stitch up and he even said he'd take first watch. He got himself up and moved over to the same tree she had been leaning against prior. She watched him a moment. He also declined the offer to eat the beast. Onyx chuckled and closed her eye's softly, momentarily.

                    "Fair enough." she said walking back over to him where her nap sack lay and quickly put away her kimono. She then moved off side, out of view to go find some wood.

                    After about ten minutes she returned with an arm full of wood and dropped it in an open area. She moved about collecting rocks too. Before long a good fire was going. Retrieving a pad of paper and pencil from her kimono she went and sat near the beast and began to draw it. She tried hard to ignore the fact that Metal was near by sitting there and probably just staring at her.
