Ashes tipped his head to one side, wondering where she got the camera. "You guys go ahead," he said. "I'll catch up."
He padded away and slid down the cabinet leg. He scurried towards the bed where his owner slept. He dug his claws into the soft wood of the bed stand and climbed up quickly. He sat on the pillow where her head lay and gazed sadly at her. "I'll miss you," he said softly. He knew that he wouldn't be back in a while, and if he did, he would be completely changed. This was the last moment he was going to be right here, like this, right now. He bowed sadly and left. When he was at the windowsill, he paused. But he would never look back. And he leapt out, out of hospitality, out of care, but out mostly of his old life.
OOC: Okay...so, the adventure begins!!! Just as a heads-up, nothing is really magical until thu get to the kingdom. Everything else is realistic.
