Lys: Unauthorized Long Patrol

Aithne dipped her head in thanks. Leaning forward, she looked around Caleb at the young boy sitting next to her, and could not supress her smile. His sheer brazenness... getting one such as Caleb to act as nursemaid...

She was about to volunteer to take over when something very wet and snuffly nosed in between them. Drawing her hand away quickly, she looked down and found a very damp and dirty Cu standing there, begging for food.

"Cu! Where have you been?" In answer, he sat his rump down and wagged his tail happily. "Hmm... Judging by your appearance I'd say you've been out in the rain all day." She took some of her meat and tossed it to him, and he caught it quite happily. "Were you out in the rain? You went out and did some long patrol of your own, didn't you?" She said, smiling down at him. "And did you find any Gauls? Hmm?" She tossed him another scrap, and a bone, which he set to work chewing and worrying.

She turned back to her food. "That dog. Half the time I have no idea what he's doing."
