xx New to the Territory
« Thread started on: Nov 10th, 2009, 8:23pm »

The brute’s pelt was dusty from travelling, in fact he was exhausted. His pawpads were scuffed from walking so far and for the entire journey he’d barely stopped. Now, under the light of the full moon, reflecting the blue of his coat, he could finally rest. Tomorrow would come and the hard part of his task would really begin – finding his father.

Sinking into the long, slightly damp grass beside the stretch of river, Blue Arrow lowered his muzzle to his paws. If he’d expected sleep to come easy – he was wrong. The soft movement of the river made his ear’s prick but that wasn’t what kept him awake. The thought of whether his father would recognise him – and if he did, whether he’d accept him, was in the front of his mind.

It took much restraint not to get up and look for him now, get the worst of it over, yet Blue knew that would be a bad idea. He knew he looked a mess, tatty fur, scuffs and scrapes from the minor arguments he’d got into along his way here. No, he had waited this long, he may as well wait until morning so he could wash off his fur and look more refreshed*

Natsume had been a busy huntress for her pack. Her title now official in the Kuna pack it was common for her to be sent out three for four times a week to scout around or hunt for the pack usually with her father or another kind of small party of members. The black and white fem moved swiftly and silently. Today a scouting trip. She was supposed to find a herd of elk or deer for the pack to track down tomorrow. An easy task.

The mostly wolf fem recently had a few interesting run ins with males. The first was a strange wolf named Dentarak who went crazy and tried to kill her but she had gotten the best of him and got away with nothing but a scratch... Later she ran into a young brute who apparently was his son and asked her to be his mate. She declined easily and fast. She definitely wasn't going to be pushed into that type of a relationship so fast then she scared him and his spying half brother off just by baring her fangs. Easy enough.

Needless to say Natsume's thoughts on males drastically changed. At first she believed based on the males in the Kuna Pack that all were supposed to be noble, strong and brave.. well after her meetings she came to one conclusion most males weren't very smart. She hoped that would change but seeing as she found both fems and brutes attractive it didn't matter much to her if all males were nothing but meat heads. It seemed as soon as she came to that conclusion. Her pink eyes flashed with the sparse moonlight that came threw the clouds and then with a purposeful step crushed some dried autumn leaves. That should get his attention if he wasn't completely out.

Blue Arrow had found his thoughts digress to the rest of his family. He’d met none of them but he’d heard his father’s family lived here too, yet he didn’t know so much as their names. His own brothers and sisters had died in puphood alike his mother shortly after he was weaned.

A noise to his left made his ears swivel around and his thoughts on his family disappear. Instantly he got up, the fur on the back of his neck rising. All the creatures he’d met on his journey until this point had been unwelcoming – after all he’d trespassed on countless territories, why would this one be much different? He knew nothing of the wolves of this land.

Who’s there? Show yourself!

Blue demanded, narrowing his eyes as he peered into the darkness around him, the clouds obstructing the glow of the moon above.

She watched him raise up and his fur go on end and smiled slightly good start this one at least had something behind that brain. She moved closer out of the shadows so that the blue furred wolf could make her out a bit better. Her tail flicked as her smile grew being a normal sized fem the brute was bigger than her but living in Kuna she knew size rarely mattered. "I mean no harm so you can calm down." Her voice was soft and was high pitched even for a female.

She moved a bit closer to get a better look at him and take in a bit more of his scent and what he looked like. He wasn't bad looking but looks never were her first thing to look at. "Your new." Her strong nose that normally found game now took every little part of his scent and tore it apart. "Yet... something about your scent is family don't know what." She shrugged and gave a kind natured smile. "I'm Natsume." She offered with a polite dip of her head. "And you are?"

He watched her silently yet despite her promise of no harm he was cautious. Of course she’d say that… let him get his guard down then go for his throat. He knew better than to trust outsiders, although in this situation he was the outsider. He bit back the desire to retort to her ‘Your new’ comment. Wasn’t that obvious already? Yet he managed to stop himself, he was tired and letting that show through a harsh remark would either admit the weakness or bad manners.

Sitting back on his haunches with his tail straight out behind him rather than relaxed around his paws he too took in her scent and made a note of it. Whether friend or foe, he would remember it later, that’s if he stayed around. Until the morning he didn’t know what his plans would be. Even then, if his father rejected him he’d have to start another long journey. Where he’d go if that happened – well, that was anyone’s guess.

Realising Natsume had asked him a question; he sat up a little straighter before answering, tall ears pricked towards her.

My name? Blue Arrow, although others call me Blue.

She could see threw his thoughts his facial expressions and body motions were enough to give away his details, but the fem remained silent threw the time he was. Her white tipped tail waved lightly. Good he was cautious that was a smart thing maybe all hope wasn't lost for the male gender.

"Blue Arrow huh? That's a nice name." She stated with a wave of her tail her high pitched voice friendly. He was nice so far and acted normal, again so far. "So where are you from, Blue? Anywere particular?" The fem asked then continued, "I've never been anywere but here at Wolf Mountain is it just as interesting out there?"

No where of interest... I haven't stayed in one place long enough to even know the names

Blue replied, looking skyward as the memory took him. The longest place he'd stayed was as a pup, but he remembered nothing more than leaving the dead bodies of his family behind. Everywhere else had just been a passing through point until now. He had travelled so long and for so far, no where had been important but here. The one place - Wolf Mountain - the only name that had been in his memory since the first time he could remember. His mother had told him about it - the one place he'd find his father.

What's it like here? I can't say I can compare... life outside of a pack is all I've known. It seems pretty brutal from the encounters I've seen, but then, I try not to be caught in packland too long.

"Oh." The sound was a little sad. Natsume always wondered if the game was bigger and smarter at times off the mountain but she guessed maybe she was in the biggest place there was for game. "Ah well guess I live in the best place then if has kept your interest for more than a few days." The fem said with a smile flopping herself on to her rear and giving a wave of her tail.

Her mind went to her home the Kuna Pack and a mischievous smile flickered on her maw for a moment. The most evil pack, the one that caused so much havoc or at least used to. It still however had the most infamy which her grandmother Terra liked as well as the most ruthress fighters. She knew that Blue wouldn't have any idea about that but it didn't mean all Kuna members were mean they were only violent when need be.. Her grandfather's motto. "Violence can solve all problems in moderation."

"Wolf Mountain? Well there's a lot of weird things here." She stated proudly. "I guess what you would call magic we call blessings and everyone has one at the start fire. You even have it now." A small pile of leaves burst into flames and Natsume waved her tail at it for a moment. "There is lots of game, and dragons, gryphons all sorts of things... Almost anything can live in this territory... But we are ruled by an Alphess like a large pack her name is WolfySilverSonic. But there are ranks of the mountain too." She didn't realize just how much there was to tell about the mountain. But she guessed that was a good start, blessings, mythicals and ranks. "Things though can get pretty brutal there have been many wars on Wolf Mountain though all of them were before my time."

Blue listened with increasing interest, especially when the leaves caught fire. At that he jumped to his paws, backing away from the source of the flames, his muzzle wrinkling back at the smell. A part of him felt fearful, another felt desire. The wolves of this pack were far more powerful than he’d given credit to. He only hoped his father did use a similar attack on him if their meeting didn’t go to plan.

Intriguing…

The idea of dragons and gryphons blew his mind however. Surely she was kidding? He looked at her bemused, not certain how he should respond to such joking. Even the supposed alphaess had a strange name. Was Natsume playing with him?

Perhaps I’ll have to see all these things for myself

As he jumped to his paws she couldn't help but grin it was funny to watch some one's reaction when they first see blessings. She watched him carefully seeing as his look of initial fear moved to a slight longing look. "You can use that blessing I just used to you know all you have to do is concentrate on Fire and something else to catch fire." Natsume explained looking at her own little fire as it was slowly burning out. "Blessings are very interesting things."

It seemed though as she explained the ways of Wolf Mountain he seemed to be in disbelief. For a few moments she wondered if she should convince him when he said he should look for them himself. "Well... I could at least show you a gryphon... maybe a dragon if Suzume is with Yuurei...." Which was a large possibility given that the two mythicals watched the pack together. "But WolfySilverSonic you will have to find on your own, I haven't even seen her before." The young wolfess explained with a slight smile.

Perhaps… or maybe later

Blue eluded, pretending to be interested in the river beside them now instead. He padded over, dropping his muzzle to drink unhurriedly but deeply. It felt good; the cold water refreshed him and made him feel more awake than previously. Part of him wanted to find out if she told the truth, another part felt reluctance. If it were true, being in the presence of something larger and more deadly than him wasn’t a prospect he relished. He didn’t want to look a coward or end up dragon meat.

I’m more interested in looking for a wolf by the name of Gyfero. Heard of him?

Licking the water from his lips he turned back to her. Was it right to tell her his reason for being here? He’d never trusted anyone before and was slightly concerned that he was trusting her.

She tilted her head slightly he seemed so interested him them but as he moved to the river her mind wandered to his real intentions on being here then her own. Crap... I almost forgot... She still needed to find that heard of elk that was crossing threw here somewhere. Maybe Blue and her could talk on the go? She stood up and twiched her nose slightly, there scent was so faint she couldn't even make out the direction to go in. Her tail twiched but her eyes wandered back to Blue as he spoke.

"Gyfero...." She repeated, "Gyfero... The name deffinately rings a bell but I don't know from where or why." Natsume explained narrowing her pink eyes in annoyance with herself. The second time her memory failed her today... "I'm almost positive Grandfather mentioned him... once so he must have some form of fame..." She went deep into though looking at her paws then back at the sky looking around until they finally landed on the peak of Wolf Mountain.. "Wolf Mountain." she muttered still thinking.

He saw her interest wonder and realised she'd probably come here for a reason herself. Obviously that reason wasn't to see him off the territory, for which he was grateful. Following her gaze, he looked up at the mountain with a perplexed expression.

Wolf Mountain?

He asked, uncertain whether the remark was made to him or just a quiet thought of her own that had slipped out.

Natsume started realizing she had said her thought aloud. "Hrm? Oh! Sorry didn't realize I said it." She laughed turning her pink eyes back to him, "Wolf Mountain that mountain there, is the name sake of this territory." She paused thinking again about this Gyfero. "Some how he's part of the Mountain I think." the black and white fem said.

It clicked then "He's related to WolfySilverSonic." Her eyes went back to the mountain, "Yes I'm almost certain though not a hundred percent." She said her tail wagging happy her memory was finally kicking back in gear.

He's related to the alpha?

Blue asked, unable to hide the disbelieve from his face this time. It was sounding all too strange. His father couldn't be the son of an alphaess, surely he'd have known? He'd expected his father to be some lone wolf, something to explain why he'd left. With that position of power, he felt almost resentful if that was true.

You must be wrong
