" We can try ? I am fine sleeping anywhere. And a fire sounds good. " One could already hear by her voice that she was starting to shiver. Now she had to think about what Connor asked. You don't have to walk. Good, she thought. But how was she going to get on a horse ? " EH..We can give it a shot. Sure. "  She gave him a bit of a worried smile. The pain just slowly started to fade and she was preparing herself now. For it would probably come back soon.

She placed both her hands on the ground, supporting herself to sit up again. She was already grinding her teeth as she stood up. Grabbing a nearby tree to support herself for a little while. " Alright..Just...How am I gonna get on the horse ? " She grinned at them. "I would love to jump on but I don't think I can manage that right now ~. " The sarcasm was obviously sparkling from that sentence.

Kaisa stood back to allow Kaira some space to get back on her feet. She bore a certain resemblance to a newborn foal taking its first steps as she struggled to get back on her feet and Kaisa was unsure if lending her a hand was the right thing to do... wouldn't want to injure her pride, after all. Kaira was a strong person.

...Connor did not have the same concerns. He fussed over her; clearly concerned for her health.
,,Here, lean on me - " he offered as he maneuvered Igni around with his free hand. The tall chestnut stallion pinned his ears and chewed angrily on the bit but he did as he was asked.

,,Well," Connor said as he looked from Kaira to the saddle with a slight smile. ,,Give a guy some credit, will you? You don't look heavy. Even this scrawny excuse for a male should be able to lift you up there."
He spoke it with wit and humour, of course... he sorely hoped that wit wouldn't get back and bite him. He was tired and sore all over; every muscle aching, and he wasn't exactly built like a powerhouse to begin with... better try to radiate some confidence and not let that concern show, of course. Wouldn't want to appear THAT weak in front of her... which was an entirely ridiculous thought, he knew. But still. A guy has his pride.

He picked her up cautiously and flashed her a brief, reassuring smile. Okay con, you got this... you got this..
...he had it. He helped her onto the horse -not easy, but he chose to grit his teeth and hide his struggle. He climbed the horse himself afterwards; settling her in front of him.
,,You good?" he asked, only slightly out of breath.

He could have sworn he saw Kaisa roll her eyes at him in the background. Tsk.

She sure did have her pride in the back of her mind. Very much so. Though when Connor offered her to lean on him she accepted. She did as he asked and used him to keep herself up. Just because she accepted the fact that he sees a maybe not so strong side of her aswell. She looked at the stallion she was about to get on to with a pair of big eyes. She liked him, a lot. Weren't she in this much pain she would certainly have fangirled over him.

Kaira had to laugh at what Connor said. She never doubted he could lift her up, she just knew it would be painful. " Oh please Connor, you are giving yourself too little credit here. "  She felt his biceps with a grin and nodded. " Feels good to me. " She didn't quite understand why he said that about himself. In her eyes there was nothing wrong with him at all. She trusted he could lift her. And so he proved when he picked her up. She gave him a trusting smile in return. Pulling herself up into the saddle untill she sat the right way. Silently cursing because it did hurt. But she was glad they got her on. Very glad. Once he was behind her she couldn't feel more safe either. On a horse, with him. Nothing could happen now. " I am good, thank you. You sure know how to help a damsel in distress. " She blushed slightly and kept her eyes on the horse.

Connor snorted to himself and gave a dry chuckle.. not a humorous one, really; it more resembled an awkward nervous laughter. ,,Oooh, don't mock me!" he said with a crooked smile, but spoken in the same manner one might use to dodge an uncomfortable subject.
...he was relieved to see his plan actually succeeded. She seemed grateful and pleased and he beamed on the inside. On top of all these worries seeing her smile like that was spellbinding.

He settled in behind her; chuckling to himself at her comment... oh, he was glad her head faced away from him, for that remark made him smile like a dork. Ridiculous, he thought to himself again. Come on, man, say something clever...

Kaisa beat him to it.

,,It's nice to see him on that side of the fence for once," she said. ,,He's usually the one in need of help."
Great. Thanks, Kaisa.

,,No no, that's just what I want you to think. By night I don my spandex suit and cloak and become Conman; rescuer of damsels everywhere."

,,'Conman'?"

,,...yeah, so that's the worst superhero name ever, just about. I'll think of a better one." He chuckled to himself and daintily reached around Kaira to pick up the reins.
,,'xcuse me," he muttered and pressed Igni forward into a walk. The stallion complied; following Hilas through the thicket and towards the outskirts of the grove.

There was something... profound about having Kaira so close. She was nestled tight against him and despite her being cold from lying in the snow she felt warm against his chest... or something in his chest felt warm.
...why did he still feel slightly out of breath from lifting her onto the horse? It hadn't been  t h a t  hard.. maybe it was the thin mountain air. Had to be.

" Everybody needs some help sometimes mm? " She chuckled, ohh she already suspected such. But honestly she was always the one getting into trouble herself as well. " Conman? " She raised a brow and giggled. " Doesn't sound very ...hero like no...Mmmm what about this, your highness; Kingcon. Since you are royalty..and it's your name. Aaand strong ! because..giant gorrila. "

That might sound ridiculous but she was kinda right? Or maybe a little loco still from the fall. But she kinda lost her concentration on the subject when she started thinking about Connor in spandex, she could not help herself. After a little while she woke up from the daydreaming. Calmly they were making their way towards the outskirts and she realized how close she was to him. The pain and cold became numb for she could only feel her heart almost beat out of her chest. She did try and get as close as possible to stay warm..Or maybe to feel safe? Anyway, it felt great. Really great. She didn't even want to arrive and just stay snuggled up to him for a little longer. But of course it didn't take them too long to reach the perfect camping spot.

Hgnn look at lil Kaira so blissfully snuggled up there; bless her! I hope she won't feel too cold or too uncomfortable by the awkward placement on the front end of the saddle, hehe xD 
And hgnnn, my kiiiids! They look so goood! Con sure looks mighty pleased with himself at this development, haha. Finally he gets to be useful! :giggle: And Kaisaaaa aaaa, just casually grumping along back there; 110% perfect xD  And the horses, aaaaa, they both look SO GOOD! Igni's expression is just ON POINT :giggle: And Hilas looks so cuuute <33 You absolutely nailed all of my kiddoes here; they just... look perfect :heart:
