Tirinde snorted and looked at Yolanda meaningfully. The dryad was not paying attention, however; she was looking at Tiokou with an unreadable face. Finally, she patted Del on the shoulder. "Del, finish up your cornflakes," she said briskly, and hustled him from the kitchen when he was done. She then turned and looked at Tirinde. "Tirinde, go make sure he's not creeping around listening in." Tirinde opened his mouth to object - Yolanda silently pointed her finger in the direction Del had gone, and Tirinde flew after the boy in a resigned fashion.

The dryad turned to look at Tiokou and Roger. "Your kingdom's - and Tiokou's - needs aside, I've made it my top priority to find - and serve - Asheron. I'm still bound by magical contract, so in two days after I've made sufficient preparations I'm going into the national park with or without you. We need to make arrangements for Del, and for the house, and-" her voice broke suddenly. She sighed. "Let's just... try to do this in a professional manner. A professional one." She hoped the implication was not lost on Tiokou, and she glared at him for good measure.

Tirinde opened an eye to give the raccoon a look. "Boy meets girl, boy realizes boy likes girl LONG after girl has realized the same thing, boy and girl kiss, boy and girl are absolutely retarded when it comes to this sort of situation and now have no idea what to do with themselves. Also, Tiokou's kind of dense and Yolanda's angling for him to romance her again but she's too shy or stupid or a combination of the two to come right out and say it leading to this ridiculous standoff in which he is oblivious and she is irate. Is that a good explanation?"

Yolanda could have stamped her foot, Tiokou was so infuriating. "I don't need your help to find Asheron!" she spat.

"I can handle myself fine. It's you who needs looking after, if Djindri comes out every time there's the slightest bit of tension." Yolanda scowled.

Yolanda turned around, her eyes wide with disbelief that someone could so... so dense! She bit her lip harder, following him out. "I was planning to just go into the woods," she snarled. "From there, I can use the Guardian to find him. You don't have to come."

Yolanda opened her mouth to say something, then closed it. What would she say? She stood up to leave, simply looking at Tiokou with large eyes.

Why did you kiss me if you're not going to follow up?

Yolanda yanked her hands from Tiokou's grip, glaring at him. "I wasn't talking about Djindri, you moron!" she snapped. She leaned back, staring at him. If he didn't want to say it, she wouldn't force him.

I love you, Tiokou.

Yolanda kept staring at her hands, saying nothing. She wanted to ask Tiokou about his feelings for her.

But you shouldn't ask a question if you're afraid of the answer.

Yolanda made a noise of irritation. "He's in Yellowstone. We already established this, remember!?" She looked away from Tiokou. "Another thing. About yesterday."

She folded her hands in her lap and looked at them. She blinked, but said nothing more.

Yolanda bit her lip, her eyes narrowing. Her hand slipped from Tiokou's shoulder as Tirinde's words echoed in his head. Even if he does like you, you can't ever be anything more than a casual...

"We need to talk. About yesterday." Her voice hardened. "Those assassins were looking for us. The earth has swallowed them, but how long before more are sent? We have to find Asheron, and fast." She said nothing about the kiss. "Nysheran... the one who sent the assassins. He's one of the royal line, eleventh in line. Asheron is third in line. This either means that Nysheran has successfully killed the first two in line for the throne, or he is taking preemptive measures." She still left out the kiss. "We have to meet up with Ash and tell him what happened, and decide where to go from there."

And still, she did not mention the kiss.

Yolanda came over to the side of the bed and sat gingerly next to Tiokou. "I'm fine," she said softly. "I'm more worried about you." She put out a hand, slowly, then placed it on Tiokou's bare shoulder.
