At least that's what Lorcan told himself. There was no use in panicking as it didn't do any good. Besides, he was probably over-reacting. Sometimes Ash liked to stay out longer, but it was getting dark out and the wild feline was normally home by now. Hydranth, Ash doesn't happen to be with you does he? He asked his dragon who was relaxing in the pavilion.
No, he is not. He passed by here earlier like normal, but I have not seen him return. Hydranth replied to him. He could tell that Lor was worried about his feline. The man liked to appear tough, but when it came to Ash he was a huge softy. He loved that cat like it was a child. I'm sure he's fine, Lor. Hydranth said encouragingly.
I know...it's just not like him to stay out this long and this late. Maybe he went to visit Isiana at her office. I'll go check there. Lorcan said. He knew he shouldn't fret so much, but he couldn't help it. With everything that had happened with the other wild felines, he was a bit more protective of Ash now. Some people wouldn't care to think that Ash wasn't a bloody killer and just kill him first. Ash was about as violent as a flutterby. He wouldn't harm a soul, but he did look the part of a wild, ferocious feline.
He quickly donned his boots and then made his way to Isiana. Along the way he kept his eyes peeled and called for Ash in the hopes that he'd suddenly would show up. That unfortunately didn't happen which only made him worry more. Politely, he knocked on her door before he opened it and stuck his head in. "Hey, Isi. Sorry to bother you, but have you seen Ash? He hasn't come home yet and I'm starting to worry about him." He explained as his eyes did a quick sweep of the room to make sure he wasn't in there.
