For once, River is actually awake before Richard.  Her whole body is flush with excitement.  Today she takes the final step.  Today, they will visit the Library and find a book with a full moon and prey, and she will hunt beside him for the first time.

She watches him as he sleeps.  Watches the way his chest rises and falls.  Watches the dreams flicker across his face.  She knows about the nightmares, knows there are times when he relives that night over and over again.  But tonight she thinks she succeeded in wearing him out, as he is sleeping as soundly as she's ever seen him sleep.

She casts an eye at the clock.  It's a quarter of five.  She can wait forty five minutes, she thinks. 

And so she waits. 

And watches.

He's snoring. Just a little bit, mouth slightly open, one arm around her. In his sleep, he smells content.

His brows furrow but he can't keep the smile from his face as her breath ghosts over him.

"Hey."

He pulls her in a little closer, relishing the toastiness under the covers and her new scent.

"Morning. How'd you sleep?"

He lifts his head to look at the clock before settling back into his pillow and her.

What's today? His scent has amusement all through it.

There's more than a hint of anticipation in his own scent, now.

You're rather eager, aren't you? He teases anyway, smiling. Dibs on the liver.

He snorts a bit, laughing.

"One of the best parts. Warm and juicy..."

Dammit, now his mouth is watering.

No thanks to you, he grumps unconvincingly. He sighs dramatically. I suppose we might as well get up, then.

Sooo put upon.

You are eager, he observes with some astonishment. All right, all right, I'm going.

He's out of bed shortly himself and over at his dresser a moment later.

What did you want for breakfast?

Food, he amends with a grin. And a lot of it.

He pulls out clothes that are comfortable but will keep the wind off of him.

"Trust me when I say you'll be hungry anyway," he says as he pulls on his pants.

He'd be rather disappointed if we didn't. He's looking forward to showing you all the tricks.

It's like they're planning a trip to the beach or something. A normal, happy occasion.

I doubt you'll remember most of it. Events tend to be a bit blurry at best. Did he mention that before? He doesn't remember.

"I suppose the only way you'll know is to record it." He smiles softly.

He bumps her back.

"You'll do fine. Even if there are a few mistakes, you're only a puppy. Atrocious penmanship is to be expected, remember?"

He finishes lacing up his boots and stands.

Shall we?

"Not Scotland," he says firmly. The Bar's version is one thing, but he sees no reason to start her experience there. He is holding on to a book, though, something deep brown with tan lettering.

"A bit further south, no humans in existence yet. Plenty of woods and the same sort of deer." That's how he began his search, adding more limitations as he went. Summer. Plenty of prey. Clean water. An area without other predators.

An area without humans.

"Does that suit you?"
