How the Wind Howls, Tag :: Penelope

Auron was getting used to the way traveling through portals worked here. There was no control, as far as he could tell, when they appeared, and they seemed to take people to random places. He, at least, was used to a bit more control when he was traveling to different worlds, but he supposed not everything would be the same as riding on Sin's back or hoping through doorways. The interesting part seemed to be that the key to returning was finding another portal in the realm they were taken to, as they always led back to Storybrooke.
Well, he supposed he did not have enough evidence to think 'always', as he'd only been through one personally. Still, people who disappeared from here seemed to return, and only new faces were being brought here from their realms. They were not being taken back, but rather gathered here.
It was a curious tale, and one that brought the adventurer out in Auron. He wanted to learn more and, even more importantly, find the hero that was meant to solve this problem. There were plenty of choices in this town, from the obvious to the very unlikely. Whoever it was, Auron wanted to find them, maybe guide them, but definitely guard them.
That was sort of his thing.
For now, though, he was content to walk down the road, not expecting any trouble, nor looking for any. Of course, portals chose their own moments to open up, and he had no sense that one was going to be doing so at the end of the block. He did notice someone nearby, though, glancing their way and nodding casually in greeting. It never hurt to be polite.

Other girls her age, Penelope supposed, would probably vow to be careful when they heard about random portals that took you to anywhere at all. Penny, though, was excited. She'd seen enough of Storybrooke already, she wanted--no she needed something to spark her sense of adventure back to life. Adventure didn't simply come to someone, she had to find it herself. Everything she dreamed of, finding her own destiny, might come true. It hardly mattered that this was the Enchanted Forest, she wasn't too excited to lay eyes on the lake that was the very last thing she laid eyes on before all went dark. Dying was unexpected, something that changed her forever, an adventure she could have done without. Penelope knew that had she not perished, she would be around twenty years old by now. A young woman, not a girl that was frozen in time until recently.
Pulling her boots on and her hair in a simple braid, she set off. She had no weapons to speak of, so she would have to rely on how quickly she could run. It didn't quite fit her vision of not being a damsel in distress, but she hoped that would change soon enough. Soon, she realized that she had no idea what she was looking for in particular.
Didn't adventurers have to start somewhere, though? Something had to yank them from their normal lives, plunging them into excitement and something that made them daring, eager to start the next. Adventurers went on quests, she told herself. Whether it was seeking people to help, or rescuing a loved one. It would be foolish, though, to wish to have a loved one to save when hers were perfectly safe. She would never wish danger on them so she could be the hero. Frowning, she walked on.
Penny suppressed a grumble. Where was an adventure when you needed one?
Bringing herself out of her slight sulking, she caught someone nodding in her direction. Penelope moved a little closer to get a good look, almost doing a double take. Wasn't he from the Underworld as well? Huh. Well, she couldn't blame him from breaking out of the dreary place to a world full of color. Eyeing him for a moment, she nodded back. It couldn't hurt to approach him and ask what he was doing, now that he was alive again. "Hello there. Mind some company?"

Auron had a flash of recognition when he saw the young lady up close, tilting his head at her thoughtfully. He had seen far too many faces in the Underworld to remember them all, but that feeling of familiarity, cold as it was, told him they must have crossed paths down there before. It was not exactly a great place for making friends, though, and Auron always stuck to himself and to his goals.
He had been a bigger stick in the mud than usual, down there. But that was just how he stayed focused.
"I don't mind at all," he said, with a small smile that was a little hard to see considering he liked to wear his collars up. His coat was oddly fashioned around this style decision, and his dark sunglasses likewise made it difficult to know what sort of an expression he was making. He had a sword at his side, having learned the hard way that walking around town without one was never a good idea.
"You're from the Underworld too, right?" he said softly, as he resumed his leisurely pace down the road. He stopped again only after a few feet, feeling a warning rumble under his feet that he had now come to recognized. "Stay close."
He held his hand out to her, though he was sure she would be wondering why at this point. The portal ripped open soon enough, though, and pulled the duo into it violently. He grabbed on to her either way, if she went for his hand or not, just so he did not lose track of her in the fall. He had no idea where they were going or if it would be dangerous, but he was not going to let her go alone. He was Guardian, and it was his duty to defend those that needed it.
Or, in this case, who happened to get pulled into the same portal he did.
