Tear sits on the ground, still within the shadow she appeared from.
"Control?" Tear asks, slightly amused, "There are things that are beyond control. What matters is knowing what causes one to lose control. Such knowledge, if used in moderation, can be used to one's advantage, or one's demise. It all depends on if it is shared, and who it is shared with."
"This incident of tonight has occurred because that knowledge wasn't shared. Nothing more and nothing less. It is where you choose to go from here that matters." Tear murmurs.
"Tear... I thank you for your compassion and understanding. I must ask Shard for forgiveness. I will attempt to steer clear of water while near you three." Crawling back out from under the tree, and returning to his normal feline form, he averts his gaze, and simply says : "Lets go back."
Tear looks sharply at Fyet, murmuring, "To atone for a mistake or an accident is only to fully admit that it occurred, and to set precautions to prevent it from occurring again. To punish yourself is to weaken yourself, which holds no gain for anyone."
Tear's eyes glance around, and she continues, "Also, there is no reason to set a watch for this night. As there is only us, even if the humans arrive at the forest this night, seeing it unguarded will put them off their guard, and so they will take a leisurely pace. That is one of the few benefits we hold being a small group, the advantage of being unknown."
"Well..." Fyet purred. Quietly, a rumbling. "I have things to think about. Other than what happened today. I'm... missing some of my family." Fyet's eyes glaze over slightly, as though he is not really focusing on anything, lost in thought.
