Your trust in me was already lost the moment you saw me. I know not if it was because I was a stranger or if you knew I was a kyuubi." His golden gaze then drifted to the small form of kaori's fairy companion. "...I have heard much of the mistrust between humans and beastfolk to the west...but did not think it was so bad." letting out a sigh he rose up, his equipment klinking gently. "I can tell earning your trust will not be a easy endeavor, but is as fine as a worms silk when it comes to breaking. You will have to forgive me but I will be even less safe travelling around you as you may misinterpret an action of mine and react in violence. So unless there is something you can do where we can come to an arrangement...then I am not certain as to how this might work." Valencar merely grunted at her words before turning about. "I am ready. The map is missing however...so..." A rare smirk slipped over his features. "you had best find a way to work out something with your new friend...the misty woods to the east are well known for getting others lost."
