Varus refused Jace's offer for help, mainly because he was done, and melody was back with the plates. He cut the meat up and put some on everyone's plate. There really wasn't a full table at which to eat so Varus moved off to a corner and ate his meal standing up. He was just about to begin eating when Jace insisted that they pray before dinner. He freaked out for a moment Did I do something wrong? Jace gave thanks to Farore, and Varus just kind went along with it. They all ate with relative silence, probably because of how hungry they all were after the excitement of the day. Matilda was much tamer now than she normally was, not arguing or bickering at all with Skyden. When did she get so quiet? By the time they all finished their meal, all of them were really sleepy. Jace went out for a quick walk before basically walking over to the rug and face-planting into it. He was out before he even hit the rug. Varus and Melody put some blankets over him to keep him warm, then melody rolled out her own sleeping bag and crawled in. Skyden, being a Kokiri, only ended up taking a little more than half the couch. The other half was occupied by Matilda, who had laid herself on her stomach so that her damaged wings would be facing upward and not be damaged further. Vasus blew out the candles that lit the room and left them all to rest. He himself could not sleep. Instead he went out onto his porch and sat in his master's old rocking chair and stared out at the scenery. Why am I so weak? Why can't I control myself? What did I deserve to end up like this? He looked out into the forest, knowing that not too far out could be the moon berries that they were looking for, but he could not bring himself to move and find them. "Why am I so weak?"
