    Emily has several tattooes:
    - a sleeve of vines and flowers on her right upper arm and shoulder
    - a collection of stars on her left wrist, tapering up her arm
    - flowers on her right foot around her ankle
    - A crescent moof on her left shoulderblade

    Brigit had never been that forthright before. Emily sniggers loudly. "Poor guy... Don't break him! Not everyone can keep up with a werewolf that's had a dry spell..." she breaks down into more giggles.

    She sighs, and turns serious. "Yeahhhh.... but what if you bump into the ego twins or someone else hunting? I'm not having any Anshega catching you one your own." Wasn't happening.

    The Ithaeur looks into Brigits brown eyes, and gapes at the Talon, blushing. "Really?" She tries to smile, putting her hands on Brigit's. "... Me too. You can count on me, babes, I promise. This is about you. I know I feel... strongly about them. But... I'm not alone any more. I have you, and all the others! I'm not, like... the lonely, depressive nymphomaniac stoner alcoholic I used to be...." She looks increasingly awkward.

    "Um. Didn't quite mean to say all that." Emily squirms, uncomfortably, looking at the empty bottle and the heavily dented one on the table. "But, like... back then I was in a really bad way. Losing dad and everyone. I'm not the same as then. Older.. smarter... I had that work on my sleeve done..." She grins bashfully. "I can do it. I swear."

    Brigit smiles.

    "No promises,"
    she says.

    He knows what's coming.

    Emily appeared to not even entertain the idea of hunting the Pure. Brigit considered protesting, but thought better of it. Allen and Niko had already expressed their interest in meeting the threat and there was Glory to be had elsewhere. The Hosts proved an equally good option and the pack had already hunted some of the Beshilu. The Azlu, though, had been left undented.

    "I trust you... but we both know that sort of Rage isn't easily forgotten,"
    Brigit says when Emily assures she is under control, "Our spirits remember the flames of fury well, Em. They yearn for it."

    However, before she goes into full lecture mode, Brigit stops and releases Emily and sighs.

    "If you say you can keep yourself together, I believe you,"
    she says, affirming her trust, "I must. Just... don't give me a reason to doubt, okay?"

    Emily... sort of shrinks and she brings her shoulders in and hunches. It's like she's deflating after holding herself up all the time. "You don't get to guilt-trip me like that, B. I'm not gonna give you a reason to doubt. Just... don't give me the same, okay? Not again. Does that sound fair?"

    The little Crescent is an open book. For once there's no playfulness, or bravado. This is who Emily is. A traumatised girl still fighting her demons, desperately clinging to her new life and refusing to give in to darkness.

    Slowly Emily pushes herself into Brigit's arms and wraps her hands around her. Head in the taller girl's shoulder, she tries not to cry. "It's just hard, okay? You're the only girl that has stuck around in the pack for long enough for me to feel you might keep sticking around. I don't want to lose you."

    She sniffs loudly. "You tell anyone you saw me cry I'll deny it. And then I'll kick your ass." The Head stays buried in the shoulder.

    Brigit's lips pressed together.

    "I wasn't trying to..." she starts before shutting her hole as Emily slipped in and hugged her. Arms wrapped around her in kind, giving her a tight squeeze.

    This was bigger than Brigit. In a way, both her and Emily stood upon a precipice that hinged on whether or not Brigit succeeded or failed. Emily needed to know Brigit wasn't going to give up, even more she had a need to see Brigit succeed.

    "I'm not going anywhere, Em," Brigit said, one of her hands raising to cup the side of the Ithaeur's head. She'd kiss the crown of Emily's head and continued to hold her as long as the Crescent needed. Talons could be guardians too and, right now, that's exactly what her sister needed.

    Seeing a chance for some levity though, Brigit tried to throw in a little humor.

    "Oh, I dunno... that sorta blackmail could be useful,"
    she teased, before her tone softened, "I won't tell anyone, m'kay?"

    "Mmkay," comes the muffled reply, letting hand and the kiss happen. Emily finally pulls away, weepy, and pecks Brigit on the cheek.

    "Oh, so it's an ass-whupping you want, huh? *sniff*" she says, forcing a smile.

    The Crescent steps around Brigit and sits on the sofa, leaving plenty of space next to her an pulling the pizza box onto her knees. "Okay, warrior woman, what do you think we should do?" she asks, patting the seat next to her and munching on another pizza slice.

    Brigit shrugs at the forced smile, smirking in turn.

    "Been awhile,"
    she says, "An ass whoopin' can really clear the air... but I wouldn't make it easy."

    Seating her next to Emily on the couch, Brigit retrieves a box of fries, shoveling a handful into her mouth and chewing a bit before swallowing it down

    "Like I said, I trust you,"
    she said, "If you think the Azlu are a better bet, we will attack the Azlu... That means we need to scout and identify a nest that is small enough for us to hunt on our own. We know the center of their activity, so finding the fringes shouldn't be that hard. Then, when we find the right nest... we remove them."

    Emily pulls another slice of pizza and leans her head on Brigit's shoulder. "Wouldn't expect anything less."

    Another bite is taken, a little slower.

    "It keeps us out of the eyes of the pack. I don't trust a lot to chance when it comes with things like this." The Ithaeur chews thoughtfully. "Edges are easy. We can scout out. Tough part will be getting back out before they start calling out big sisters. Like you said. Scout. Hunt. Choose. Strike. We'll need a trophy too."

    There's another few moments of thoughtful silence.

    "I never thought the pack would get this big"
    Em says slowly. "Never had this many folks around. It's kinda weird. More Fighty. Was it like this when you were... y'know. with lots of other wolves?"
