The Bear, the Bear and the Maiden fair
Ben was staring at the forest canopy around him, looking at all the routes he believed this feral Lucy could take. Hearing some movement his eyes whip back to the spot where he believes she still is, finding her not there he lets out a soft curse and scans around looking for where she could have gone without him noticing. He starts to get up even though he has no clue where to run off to, his eyes catch a spot of brown and tan and noticing her bared fangs he freezes. "Hey... sorry, sorry… you just scared me is all... I'll sit back down now ok?" He holds his hands out in front of him but in doing so has no way to slow his decent and thus crashes to the forest floor. Ben laughs at himself and looks back at Lucy smiling, "See? Nothing threatening here just a big, dumb, goofy ape..." He sighs not sure how to get her closer to... Ben's not sure what, grab her?, not with those claws. Maybe just keep her pinned to the ground? No... I might crush a leg and that's the last thing we need right now. He gets an idea, seems stupid at first but it might be just dumb enough to work, "Story of my life huh?" He laughs at himself again before sliding his pack off his shoulders and reaching inside his food pouch and pulls out a piece of salted and dried beef. He holds it up for Lucy to see, hoping at the very least she would come down closer to take a look at it, "Nothing nefarious just food..." He says in a calm low voice as he tosses it a foot or two in front of where he is sitting. "Come onnnn sheer dumb luck that you are hungry..." he mutters to himself, Ben's gaze then flicks from the food to Lucy and back again, hoping that will be enough to tell her to try it.
