Reaching the little stay, Kat slid off Black and stroke him thankfully. The stallion felt happy getting cuddles from his new friend x3
Nört nodded at her "She tried to dive after you".
Vidar's reaction was still many seconds behind, he realized it when he fought himself off the saddle, his stirrups frozen half to his boots.
He looked at her surprised. Kat shrugged it off like it was no big deal. "your a bit insane" Vidar smiled. She grinned back "a little bit".
Archie talked to the owners of the stay about their little accident, they immediately got a room but the pair was not impressed
that the hunters brough half Obertauern into the house-meaning a ton of snow. Black pinned his ears back feeling sad,
he could see his friend's buddy was injured and saw their "herd" leaving them alone at the house. He neighed Kalinka goodbye and walked
around impatiently while Kat helped Vidar inside. "you'd have been surprised" Vidar said with a fading raspy voice, Kat
didn't found a connection to this sentence and looked at him tilting her head. "how easily you lose control down there" he chuckled
trying to make a goofy smile, "but i barely felt as much loosing control as when i am with you". She shook her head with a naughty
grin "Yeah funny how you can last so long in subzero waterm but not that long with me".
"i am working on it" he laughed.
She thanked the people showing them their room and started peeling off the frozen clothes. He looked like he didnt even knew
what was happening around him and smiled around "You know that i love you right?".
Kat sighed hugging him tight "you don't even know how scared i was!". "Scared despite knowing i wouldnt have died from that poolparty?"
She looked at him reproachfully "i wouldn't push that theory". He squinted every time his arm was moved, "me neither...
i never want to be seperated from you...that ice..seemed colder because it would keep me from seeing or feeling you".
Kat saw his expression changing while she took a towel and stroke it down his cheek, drying him. She also noticed his shoulder
feeling hot and started to be red, maybe he had bigger problems than his low temperature. She giggled slightly
by remembering Lyo's little warming trick and started to undress as well and crawling on top of Vidar in the bed, hugging her
icehunter tight and cuddling to his neck. Like Vidar would have put down his armor, he stood there just enjoying her soft touch
and followed. "Can tough hunters still break a bone?", she whispered and he started to shiver, "i am afraid i just broke one".
"i think you did too, having a two-ton animal fall on you will do that", she kissed his neck softly. He stroke her with a trembling hand
"Ok Legit reason, imma let this reason count to break something".
There was a long silence in the warm room "My worst fear is drowning" Kat said silently.
He hugged and kissed her like he'd want to protect her from all her fears....he added ina half whisper
"Mine is to return home from a journey and finding no one, losing my family ..staying alone.."
"that will never happen" she said pressing even more against him
"i believe you sweetheart" he sighed before falling asleep, her lips started to tremble "i love you tough guy"
just an hour later kat awoke feeling Vidar being even hotter than herself and he moved his head
constantly and was breathing unsteady. She woke him up carefully and tried to make clear he needed a hospital. He couldnt move his
arm at all. There was one hospital, he explained, that was kinda close. Unreachable without horses tough. An alpine camp
where Damon's brother Mikhail works as surgeon for an agency he introduced to Kat before. But clearly saying he is not
eager to go there because last time he knocked out the doctor. She took the dryer clothes off the heaters and covered Vidar in a thick
blanket, walking out "do you know where it is exactly?". "yes...sure its not hard to find for those who know where it is"
Kat prayed that the only possible way to get there, that was on her mind, would work out. Black came trotted from the trees
happily to see his friend again but the worry in her eyes made him see she is in trouble.
Most of his life he was busy helping out his companions, if now those companions had two legs or four, he didnt made a difference.
