Why wasn't this helping, why couldn't she understand he didn't want to go..... but she was slowly eliminating any and all excuses he was trying to provide. There was nothing that was gonna continue to stop her unless he....unless he wanted to outright reject her.

Which he could.

But he didn't want to piss her off- he pissed off so many others.... at this rate he was going to be alone. He probably deserved it but he ought to try- but he was still scared.

Caspian knew he had to trust her.... even if it was hard....even if every instinct was telling him to not... If he didn't he risked losing her- and her patience was already wearing thin and let's be honest- Emily Jane was not one for patience.

He exhaled trying to figure out what to do- what to say.....anything.... averting his eyes down to the ground, Caspian glanced briefly at Emily Jane before looking away once more.

"Just....promise me....you'll let me leave when I want to. I know it sounds strange...but I just... I need that reassurance. If I get that, I'll go..." he said quietly.

Now it was Emily's turn to hesitate, but only for a moment. She needed answers but she wasn't going to keep him anywhere against his will. She only did stuff like that when she absolutely had to. And she trusted Caspian. She was sure he would understand her interest about what she needed to know. Especially if she explained the arrangement she had with her father. She had a feeling that he would ask about that with how stubborn he'd been already.

"Of course." She nodded. She would make the arrangements as soon as they were on their way. He wouldn't have to worry about getting home if he chose to leave. Hopefully he'd at least stay long enough to enjoy it.

With that settled, she turned and started towards the trees once again. This time though, she looked back every few seconds to make sure he was in fact following her this time. They'd spent enough time on this. She had made sure to clear time in her schedule for him but it was only a matter of time before something popped up.

At Emily Jane's reassurance, Caspian relaxed ever so slightly. He had to remind himself, he could trust her. He could trust Emily Jane- he trusted her before, he could trust her again.

And trust her he would.

True to his word as soon as she gave him her confirmation, he followed her. He noticed she would occasionally glance behind her- as if reassuring herself that he was indeed following. He gave a hesitant smile hopefully one that would put her at ease.

What was waiting for him.... only one way to find out.

Emily made a beeline for the closest group of trees. It was nothing large, only a handful of trees clustered together. Logically, it shouldn't have gone anywhere other than where they were right now. But the moment Emily Jane stepped foot between the trunks, it opened up to a completely different forest. And as soon as Caspian set foot in it behind her, it closed up.

This part of the forest wasn't lush or green or beautiful in the same way the rest of it was. She would allow him to travel through her forest but only through the outer edge of it. Here, the tree grew tall and dark and the branches swayed of their own accord. Little light made it through the thick canopy, making everything dark and dusty save for a few spots where it broke through. An ever present mist rolled through the trees so it was hard to see very far. Around their feet, water flowed through the ground without ever mixing with it. If Caspian didn't pay attention and accidentally stepped into one of these streams, he'd find that they didn't seem to have a bottom.

In Emily's mind, this part of her forest was just as pretty as the rest. Not every ecosystem was bright and colorful. Just because the light didn't make it to the forest floor here didn't make it any less than anywhere else. However, she was also very well aware of how eerie this place could be. It was the very reason she used it to keep unwanted travelers from accessing the rest of her forest. Still, since she was here, there wasn't near as much hostility as their normally was. Hopefully Caspian didn't mind the creepy air to her forest for the short time they passed through it.

The trees reached out to her with their branches as she passed, leafs occasionally grazing her. The crows that lived in this part of the forest soon found her and perched in some of the few still branches. They cawed in greeting but watched Caspian with a very suspicious eye. She thought she saw the wolf pack somewhere out in the mist but if they were there, their chose to keep their distance this time.

Emily led them through the forest for a few minutes. She never changed direction or had to move around a tree, it was as though they moved for her. Eventually, they stepped out of the forest to their true destination.

Where they stepped out could hardly be called a forest and the plants that grew there were only barely trees. They were the final evergreens that tried to grow further into the cold than all the others. Before them, there was nothing but seemingly endless fields of white and the dark sky. Overhead, ribbons of green and blue snaked through the sky. It was a place untouched by anything human, the cold keeping them far from exploring this place. In the distance, a white head lazily rose from the snow, her black nose being the only thing that gave her away. Two more smaller heads popped out of the fluff as well, watching the newcomers in complete curiosity.

When Caspian followed Emily- he felt like his heart was pounding in his chest. And when he entered the forest he about jumped when he heard the trees cut off the exit behind them. He had chosen to trust Emily- now there was nothing else left to do but to continue on.

The forest already looked different.... instead of the winter forest he was...well- it was still winter but things were darker here... it was mysterious and foreboding in the ways that he knew nature could be. While beautiful it was also deadly- it was always wise to exercise caution. To respect it. Carefully- he watched his step to avoid stepping into the dark streams of water. Mist rolled occasionally lit by the wisps of light that broke through the canopy.

Caspian didn't have many words to say to Emily as they traveled... so for the time being he followed her wordlessly. Instead taking in everything around him. In all honesty- he was impressed...even if a tad apprehensive... this was an incredible sight- one he had never really seen before. The path they took was straight. Emily just walked for a couple minutes and as if by magic the path was never cluttered although sometimes Caspian wondered if perhaps the trees were moving to let her pass...

She really had grown from the small girl he had once known...

Eventually though- they must've arrived to where she wanted to be...they stepped out and before both of them was a great expanse of white.... very little...if any trees grew in this place... and ribbons of light colored the skies in combination with a great expanse of stars.

Caspian's breath came out in silvery wisps as he just took everything in, a creature that he could hardly make out laid in the distance with two cubs near her relaxing- likely not used to seeing people this far into the cold.

“So.... I take it... this was what....” he trailed off not really sure what to say, “It’s incredible...” he said finally.

Emily couldn't help but give a small smile as she watched his reaction. "I told you you would like it." She'd known from the beginning that he would. If only he hadn't been so difficult about coming here... Oh well. He was here now. That was the important part.

She took a few steps forward before settling down into the snow, silently inviting him to join her. She wanted him to enjoy this place while they were here. She wouldn't be bringing him back anytime soon that was certain. There was still the real reason she had brought him here but she would at least give him a moment to enjoy the place. Mostly because she wasn't exactly sure how to go about it other than her usual way.

From across the way, the two cubs got to their feet as Emily sat down and immediately sped towards the two, sending snow flying everywhere as they went. Their mother, a positively massive polar bear, tossed her head back and got to her feet to follow them. Their presence wasn't something Emily had planned but perhaps she could use them to her advantage. Surely the cubs could keep him entertained while she figured out what exactly to say.

Caspian still was trying to take in everything. Take in the lights, the stars, the expanse…. It was incredible. Emily Jane settled herself in the snow, her reaction-predictable.

“....Uh yea...you did… didn’t you,” He said lowering himself down beside her but not close at all. There was still some distance between the too, but not an amount that would prevent a conversation.

He still didn’t quite believe it, but he tried to keep reminding himself that for the team being at the very least...they were safe. He was safe.

...right?

As the two cubs rushed over, clearly curious at him and perhaps familiar with Emily Jane- Caspian stiffened. He warily watched the massive mother bear follow, and tried to mentally remind himself that Emily Jane wouldn’t let him get eaten by a bear.

...right?
