Instead of striking her, like he was sure Taisya expected her to, Endar kneeled down next to her and gently put a hand on her shoulder. With a very calm tone, he said "Don't worry about it. We were attacked. Frankly, I'd have been angry if you had tried to save the clothes."
Continuing, he said "You just take your time with the clothes. Don't rush. There's absolutely no need. Alright? In fact, if you want to take a few moments to sit back and rest, that's fine too. But whatever you do, slow down. I don't mind you taking a little extra time, especially considering the circumstances."
He straightened up and began to walk back to his makeshift chair. Halfway there, he stopped and turned to face Taisya again. "And I already told you. I'm carrying the water...and the wolf! Now, I don't wanna hear any more about it. Understand?" His tone was now forceful, but soft so he didn't seem too angry.
He turned again and continued to his rock. He sat down with a relaxed sigh. He stretched out and got comfortable. He then looked to Taisya, hoping she had done as instructed and relaxed some. He knew that working too hard after an adrenaline rush like being attacked by wolves could be dangerous.
