Andrew was overseeing the training of the new arrivals, his mind however was on other things. He had seen Briana's orders, her companies orders, and that meant his orders. Right now his mood reflected in the barking he gave the new bloods. They may have passed thier initial training and taken thier first drafts but they were a long long way from being Templars. If any of them were going to be joining his company, then he wanted them at thier best. 

Only the best ever got to ride in Knight Captain Talons company. 

Andrew had begged the Revered mother, almost to the point that he was on his knees, not to send Briana to Soldiers Peak. Not that he didn't believe she couldn't handle what was there, or might be there, but more because of WHO was there. Briana had come a long way since those times, a very long way and he did not think seeing HIM again would do anything other than stir up memories and pains she did not need right now. 

The mother had dismissed his concerns as had the Knight Commander and Andrew was hoping against hope that maybe something else would come up and have another Company heading to that cursed Warden hotbed of mages. 

He showed his displeasure at the junior knights by making them run round the compound in full armour with thier packs on thier backs. If they thought he was harsh, they were lucky, his Training officer was a hell of a lot tougher than he ever was, 

"Andrew" He turned as fellow Knight Sergeant Daniel came over "Bri is on her way to see you, just thought i'd give you a heads up"

Andrew nodded but, folding his arms across his chest watched the hour glass as he watched the recruits.

With her new orders given that morning Briana was getting ready to head out to the Grey Warden compound Soldiers Peak. But when she went to gather her men she found them running laps. With a slight frown she ordered them to stop, refresh and regroup. They were to head out as soon as possible. After a quick salute her men did as instructed and Briana set her sights on Andrew. He'd been acting out of sorts after they received their new orders and though she did not know he'd gone behind her back to request those orders be changed she was fully aware he was not happy with them.

Briana approached her best friend who was obviously in a mood. Whenever he crossed his arms he was in some sort of mood. Thankfully they were left alone in the yard which allowed her to speak to him in less a formal manner than what their uniforms dictated. "You and others should have been preparing to leave for Soldiers Peak, not running training exercises. What is with you, anyways?" She brow furrowed.

"Nothing" He shortly replied "i was just getting the men and women ready to leave, because you know Mages" 

He thought that would have been obvious, even to her. It wasn't a complete lie after all, every mage in Fereldan knew damn well that they had safe harbour within the Grey Wardens. Some of the worst mage criminals usually found thier lives spared by taking the joining. As much as Andrew respected the work the Grey Wardens did, it grated his last Andraste blessed nerve that they could become a Grey Warden and have no repercussions for thier deeds. 

He respected the Wardens, thier sacrifice known throughout history, it didn't mean he wanted to storm into the major keep of the Warden Mages either. Especially with who was in charge there. 

"I just think we could be doing something more productive than cleaning up after the Wardens AGAIN" He really did not want her pursuing this line of questioning, "Just head to Haven like we are supposed to do, aid in keeping the Avvar at bay or the Chasind, something other than Warden Mages"

Briana shook her head in disagreement. "It is our duty. That is why we are going. It doesn't matter if they are Grey Wardens." Briana wasn't buying Andrew's excuses. He was on edge about something and him refusing to say what it was made her even more determined to figure out why. "I honestly don't see why you're so against this. We are going to the Soldiers Peak." Her tone left no more room for discussion about the matter.

Andrew was about to say something when some hapless messenger came from the Revered Mother to inform both the Sergeant and his Captain of the protocols involved in meeting with Warden Commander Guthrie at Soldiers Peak. Andrew cursed under his breath and told the messenger to go. Seeing Briana's face at that moment and he knew there was a storm coming on the horizon. 

well maybe not the horizon, more like between the two of them, here and now, Fuck it every-time that mans name was even hinted at and Briana always went on the defensive and now was not going to be any different then the other times. 

"Now you know why i don't want you going to Soldiers Peak" he glared after the retreating Messenger and had an inkling that the mother might have done that deliberately. "Every single time Innes Guthrie comes up in conversation you loose your sensibilities!" 

Well that was not an entire lie, but he suspected that had more to do with Cameron, although Briana had not made her move to claim him back yet, it was still there, Andrew had been discreetly looking over the lad, and had grown fond of him. So that was another reason he didn't want Briana heading off to Soldiers Peak, not that he would ever bring Cameron into this, he was not that cruel, he just didn't see what purpose having that tosser back in her life in any shape or form would do. 

He had not been there to look after Bri, Andrew had, and right now his over protective nature was asserting itself. He just needed her to see that.
