Ranger Ivy Frost
Ivy marked another check under the 'safe' column of her Meteor Valley cave list on her phone. This one was number twenty three. She had roughly thirty more cave entrances to check before she was done.
Lately the Ranger had been doing a lot of small side projects. She had worked her way through cleaning and rearranging most of the storage sheds at each Outpost, checked and repaired docks and boats at the Lakes, and planted and re-potted foliage from the Gardens. She supposed someone had to do it, and she didn't mind the break from paperwork.
She specifically didn't mind this task. Trainers and Rangers went into these caves all the time, and it was good to check if they were stable enough. Her first run, when none of her equipment was in yet, she had experienced a cave-in with a Trainer. They had no choice to navigate the caves blindly or risk running out of air if they stayed. That had been scary, and she wasn't going to let it happen to anyone else.
A beep and a shake from the device in her hand alerted her to a text message. She hit the button to look at it now and read the note, from one of the secretaries at the office. “run @ woods. u want?"
Ivy had to shake her head at the horrible grammar, moving her long red hair back and forth. What had they been thinking with text speak. It was almost impossible to understand some people's writing as it was.
She quickly sent back a “Sure. Meet them there asap.” and called to Haji, who was poking around in the sand near the hillside. “Ready for another run?” she asked, and the Espeon nodded, his split tail flicking. She had a feeling he was a little bored going around all the caves, though she knew he wouldn't ever show it on the outside.
The purple cat came close, and after he mentally told her to hang on, the air started to shimmer as he teleported them out. Through their mental bond, he could usually read her mind, so he already knew where they were going. When the atmosphere evened out, they were face to face with the entrance to the Woods. Trees lined up to form a single path into the dark.
It was a welcome sight. At least they weren't in Deckbi again.
She took a familiar seat at the bench by the Outpost doors, and like always, Haji jumped up to sit by her. She moved her long canvas vest out of the way and rolled the sleeves to her dark turtleneck up her arms as she settled. Her phone buzzed as the secretary sent all the Trainer information over, and the two looked at it as they waited for the person to show up. She made a mental note to wash her red vest later; inspecting the caves had gotten a bunch of dust on it. While it didn't bother her, it looked a little unprofessional for a Trainer visiting for the first time. Oh well.
