However, as she's come into adulthood it's felt more and more to her that Mrs Boor is in fact, living in Ruth's care. Indeed, from the moment the young archer proved able to adequately hold conversations with strangers she has been working as the Beastmaker's courier, scout, and emissary, performing all the errands that Mrs Boor is to 'busy' to accomplish herself.
