It had been a little over a week since Eida stumbled upon the Rebellion, more specifically Sunday. Naturally she'd been welcomed with open arms, as Erieda's granddaughter and Simon's niece, but even with the warm reception she was not particularly comfortable mingling with the rebels. She accepted the offer only for the sake of her daughter, who'd not had a warm place to sleep in months.

This morning Eida had been invited to join a small group of the Rebellion's women and children, who would often venture to nearby streams or lakes to wash their garments and bathe. She wasn't a particularly sociable person but it was a far better alternative to wandering out of the camp alone, especially with her child.

As they chattered among themselves, Eida stayed a ways back from the group, smiling at the babe who gurgled and grasped at the collar of her jacket.

Eida allowed Hotaru to sit with a small group of Fey while she went to bathe quickly, figuring she should get herself out of the way first so she could focus entirely on her daughter.

Even beyond the noise of the children and idle chatter, a rustle in the bushes nearby was enough to catch Eida's attention and her eyes scanned for the source, finally settling on a tall figure in the distance. It only took her a second to recognise that face, the long hair and familiar armour of the Dragon Realm. His attention wasn't focused on her, strangely, but instead on the young Dragon she'd bore with him.

Eida strode forward until she was out of the water, completely unabashed despite her current state, and didn't halt again until she was standing between the two of them; fists clenched and narrowed eyes trained on the man. Everyone around them had fallen silent.

"Take one more step towards this girl, see what happens to you," she challenged him coldly, ignoring the younger woman who walked forward to drape a small sheet around her shoulders. Her sword, seemingly of its own volition, lifted from the ground to meet her hand and she stood more than ready to use it.

Eida didn't trust Mycah anymore, not after learning of the sigil he wore... The sigil he asked her grandfather to etch into his skin; the one that allowed him to flee when she needed him most. It kept her away, kept his daughter away by association, and he'd thus far made no attempts to see either of them -- whether he knew she was his or not. More than that, however, she was territorial by nature and the thought of sharing her daughter with this man was enough to make her blood boil.

"You made your decision, Mycah, the second you accepted that sigil and what it entails," Eida continued. "So even if I have to separate your head from your shoulders, you will stay away from my child until I say otherwise." She further lifted her sword and pointed it threateningly in his direction, so there was no mistaking how far she would go to defend her daughter and her territory. "Leave now."
