The hike to the castle is easy enough. It would likely have taken less time if Mary hadn’t been curious and wanted to stop and look at some of the older trees.

But that’s what holidays are about, really.

The plan is to ride to Port Caynn tomorrow and swim in the sea before spending the night at an inn of…slightly dubious reputation. (Alanna assures her it’s safe now. Lucy makes a note not to mention any former smugglers to Archibald Craven.)

But tonight is for camping, and as the evening approaching Lucy heads out to stroke her borrowed mare’s neck and make sure the supplies are all ready.

"I have never slept outside before," Mary says, with wide eyes, and looks around at the covering of the trees.

"Except sometimes by accident - when I was tired and it was sunny. But not at night."

She sounds excited.

Mary gives her an odd look.

". . . why would you roast apples?"

"- you mean like an apple turnover," Mary says, wisely.

(Not that you would put meat in an apple turnover, because, ew.)

"Except there ought to be pastry."

Mary's eyes widen, at that.

"I did not know you could eat bears," she says, sounding impressed, and glances around at the woods surrounding them.

"Are there bears here?"

"I am not frightened of bears," says Mary, predictably.

"It is only good to know in case we must be prepared." She looks over at the campsite, and then back at Lucy.

Awkward beat.

"I do not know how to start a fire."

Mary takes Lucy's hand, glancing from her to the clearing and then back.

"It seems as if it would be a useful thing to know," she agrees - which is perhaps Mary's way of saying 'thank you for teaching me.'

Mary repossesses her hand and and moves off in search of these items, squinting down seriously at the ground.

After finding three sticks, which she clutches with intensity, she has the idea to hold up the hem of her pinafore and turn it into a sort of carrying bag.

Mary comes back over to the center and stands with a skirt full of pine needles, watching Lucy build.

"Should I put the needles on now?"

mistressmaryquitecontrary: (eyemary)
From: [personal profile] mistressmaryquitecontrary
Mary nods, listening carefully as if committing the instructions to memory, and then gets down on her knees next to the fire to carefully put handfuls of needles into the space Lucy indicuated.

(Her stockings are going to be horrendously dirty.)

Mary shakes her head.

"Martha always makes the fire."

"I will be careful," Mary says, watching the sparks fall with wide, fascinated eyes.

"I want to try by myself now to see if I can do it."

Mary knocks the rocks together, with a great deal of force and determination.

There's a clanging sound. Other than that, nothing much happens.

"Why did it not work?" Mary demands, scowling.

Date: 2007-06-11 05:05 am (UTC)
mistressmaryquitecontrary: (quietlyproudmary)
From: [personal profile] mistressmaryquitecontrary
"No - I can do it," Mary says, tossing back her head, and attempts again, sliding the flint and steel together.

This time a tiny spark appears, and Mary bursts into a beaming smile. "There - see?"
