Bright, sunny days were the best herb gathering days. The herbal store hadn’t been totally useless, but as Leas had mentioned, most of them were old. Some Piper had felt worth saving only because it was wiser to have anything going into the cold months than nothing. Over the days after talking with Leas and Mintaka, Piper had scoured the immediate area around the caves for whatever late season cramming she could get in. With the few mouthfuls she’d found, it’d been a hassle trying to find a sunny spot to dry them out on. Barely worth the effort.
As she woke early this morning, however, Piper felt the sun beating down as soon as she exited the caves. It would be a nice day indeed, the one she planned on taking Leas on their herb gathering trip. First, however, shed scouted ahead.
Piper would call to Leas if she got too far to hear properly, but there wasn’t a worry there when she came into a brighter area laden with late bloom flowers and, undoubtedly, herbs. Hopefully, some Lemon Balm or Rosemary.
There, she tipped her head back and howled as loud as she could, long and slow. Leas would surely take into account of the weather and come, but whomever else came to investigate, that was lovely as well.
Reclining into a patch of long grass, the ebony woman waited for her audience: puppy or adult.
