Location: Near the Lake • Date: Mid - January

It was a rare day in January when the weather was tolerable. It wasn't warm by any stretch of the imagination, but neither was the wind biting or the frost clinging to Osthryth's skin. The weather was good enough that Osthryth felt encouraged to venture out of the castle walls to see what she trouble she could scrounge up. Her mother had been the one to teach the girls how to scour for potions ingredients during all seasons. The pickings were scarcer this time of year, but that didn't mean there wasn't anything to be found.

The ground was clear of snow, luckily, so Osthryth kept her eyes on the ground as she wandered the grounds near the lake searching for something, anything, of use.

Eardwulf didn't like winter. Winter meant more fires in the interest of keeping warm. As a result, he spent more time out of the keep, shooting arrows one after another down by the lake until his quiver was empty. The weather wasn't so bad, thankfully, and he breathed in the crisp air as he readied another arrow.

He didn't release it, though, as another figure entered his field of vision, near the tree he had been aiming at. "Oi!" he called, relaxing the bow string and pointing the arrow tip at the ground. "Watch yourself!"
