He wanted to get out of the pack, even ranks needed breaks every now and then and with the fire in the pack lands dieing down and the rule of Black Rain becoming a few weeks old he figured it would be a good day get out. Cross Fire didn't chose this place randomly however Wolf Mountain, the land's name sake, he had never been here and a few of his grandchildren had mentioned a large heard of Caribou and other game lingered about on it. As he trotted lightly he looked back for a moment. Surely he wasn't going on this trip alone today, no all mother's needed a break and today it was Orchid's turn to get out for a bit.

"How you doing!?" The red wolf called back over his shoulder his voice deep and rough but he didn't sound old, not anymore at least nor did he really look all that old either. Scarred muzzle in a large grin his tail waving lightly he continued his little trot around stopping again not to far away. He wasn't expecting Orchid to hunt but just get out for a bit after all today with all the sun it was a wonderful day and it wasn't overly hot either just comfortable.

The old wolf took in a deep breath, the air was clear and crisp not cold crisp like at Ice but still chilled. "Its a great day to be out don't you think, Orchid?" He felt like a young wolf so full of zest. Normally down to earth the day of rest and taking a small hike out of the pack seemed to be bringing him some energy. He streached and shook out his body feeling dust come out of his fur and his emerald eyes went straight to the woods not much further ahead he knew soon he would be running just like his younger days at this rate.

The pups were now just over a month old, same age as Black Rains alphaship. It wasn't that hard for Orchid to get used to it, even though she was used to seeing Seg in power more than anything she was used to change. Orchid had started to gain her body back...the closer to three months she got the smaller her hanging tummy got weaning would be easy for her pups...they rarely fed from her in the first place...spending a lot more time playing and crawling now that eyes were wide open.

So her muscles had started to regain definition, her luster returned to her fur as it became thicker. It must have been stress keeping her from adapting to the Ice Pack climate with stress relieved she was able to get a thicker base coat with protective under coat. Her legs became more defined and her face much brighter. Her smile was clean and enticing again she was not the sickly small framed fem that had first met Cross Fire in her time of confusion. Orchid started to speak out more and gained a role of respect in the pack and she was very happy with that.

Today however the newly recreated fem was bounding lightly up the mountain. It had been a little while since she been here and it didn't return bad memories. Her fight had been valiant and she was sure it was something she was supposed to do. She called up to Cross Fire...who surprising had such a thirst for life, "I'm good just bouncin' from rock to rock." She said sounding out of breath as the would breath in on up and exhale on landing. The thought of it made her chuckle as she kept keeping up with Cross Fire.

It didn't take long for Orchid to catch up with Cross Fire at the top. She was just in time to hear the entire question, "It's a beautiful day to be out...I was surprised you was able to get away." She said openly not winded at all. It was true that Black Rain and Cross Fire was never really as busy as Seg and Lucien used to be but still there was a great bit of work for the Higher Beta and Alpha to do. The spent a lot of time in meetings...some of which she attended, and some of which she got a mother's duty excuse from. Still it wasn't often she was not entertaining Cross Fire in the pack as she watched the pups play. Orchid heart had grew lighter...something she never really knew. She was unaware of how heavy it was until she was free from all burdens.

((Since this is so far in the future Imma going to have FR "be back" at Ice since really it was only a few days of BR owning it before she turned up))

Cross Fire gave a nod and his tail a wag, she had so much energy today and that made him happy. "Alright then!" He exclaimed merrily changing direction to the forest where he had heard the game usually hid themselves. His mind went around to the happenings of late, Flaming Rose returned, alive and well after all that time, she still seemed unsure of how to treat him but at least she didn't hate him just like everyone said she wouldn't. It was a trying day but since her return it felt her den was always bustling with excitement.

The old wolf smiled with the thought and his tail waved again pausing for a moment he looked back at Orchid again and called, "So what are you hungry for? I've been itching to get this muscles going today since Karasu doesn't want to fight today. Karasu, his grandson and Cross Fire had been sparring together almost daily it seemed to bring some of the young boy's spunk back as well as the old red wolf's. "I can get you anything! Believe me I feel like a five year old again!" The wolf bounced enthusiastically on his four and with a pop fell over. "My hip!" He shouted then started rolling around chuckling tail waving about. He was his daughter's father after all.

((That's cool grin))

The last rock wasn't as big as Orchid had hoped but far enough from the other to have to extend her body arching it in such a way to show the true slender feminine frame she often time hid in a sit or lay position. Orchid was enjoying the day her blue eyes moving around wildly as being outside of the pack, without having to sneak away had made the world seem so new. She smiled at all the smells she had missed, spring completely and now that she did not have to worry about being followed she would miss no more seasons.

Orchid was happy that her best friend had returned to this realm, but Orchid had knew there was so many friends of FR that she could not stay away for long. Orchid just could not think of FR creating half bonds, full and strong bonds seemed more fitting to the red fey. And thus the reason for the two being so close so quickly. With the Black Rain and Cross Fire either off sparing, with each other, or other wolves, or having private conversations, FR and Orchid had plenty of time to catch up and there was no really need for CF to be her any longer. So what was he now? Of course he was a friend to the fey, Orchid had grown quite close to the male.

Orchid was good at keeping desires hidden, she wasn't sure if it was the same for Cross Fire. She had to spend a lot of time with him as well being that he was the higher beta which meant when something needed to be done if BR, CF or Lucien could do it Orchid was usually told to complete the task, it wasn't something huge usually member squabbles and that was done by her most often because of her farity. When ever CF would reach out to touch her she'd freeze in thought, only thinking momentarily of the two together. Only momentarily and not enough of a freeze to be counted as a flinch, but she never withdrew from the brute, half way or completely.

At his questions she wanted to say one answer, what was she hungry for and if he could get her anything what could it be. With no other around on a regular basis it was pretty much given that Orchid would evolve feelings but it was in appropriate and much too soon for own family, and too much of a knife to open up an old wound the fey did not wish to open. So instead she smiled, "So I could ask for deer?" she joked her eyes narrowed in a flirting way, but it was in good fun, "Or Elk, Or maybe Duck!." She smiled mischievously, "Yes I'd like duck, think you can make that happen superman?" her teeth exposed in good humor, of course she didn't expect duck to happen and she would not care if it didn't just being out and having a good time would be good enough for her.

Then out of no where there was a gasp as Orchid reacted to Cross Fire yelling his hip, in no time at all she was on top of him face soaked in worry. The blue eyed fey was about to ask what she could do to help when she heard his laugh, her face grew embarrassed, then angry then released as she hit him heavily with a paw, what a mean trick.

He stopped at her words and gave it some serious thought, "Duck huh?" Cross Fire said then gave a, "Hrm." His tail flicked as his mind went around to every place on the mountain until he realised there probably wasn't enough still water here for ducks to roost. "Another time, I promice!" The old wolf said keeping up beat emerald eyes shining brightly as they went around landing on her a pleasent smile on his scarred maw. Slowing his trek down so that Orchid could walk beside him the wolf said. "So things are starting to return to normal don't you think?" He said, of course meaning Ice and its goings on.

At her hit he only laughed, "Hey, hey I was just kidding!" The old wolf didn't hardly budge he was actually suprised she was so surprised at his actions. Again he laughed. "Well this is what you get when your old Orchid." Though the old wolf certainly wasn't looking to old right now. He recalled when he had first met Orchid he was grey nosed, eyes and coat were dull and was looking very battered. He inwardly smiled at the memory the both of them were doing so much better now since they had... His thoughts stopped, no he need not go there. His eyes flicked guiltily to Orchid and a sigh escaped his maw.

Cross Fire flicked his eyes away from her trying to focus on something else. Nothing really caught his attention until they landed on a flock of birds flying over head. Just common wild canaries though they flew away so fast he wondered what could have startled them. Putting the thought aside the wolf said. "I'm happy you chose to hang around this old wolf today instead of the young ones. I know I'm not as interesting or fun as them." He chuckled lightly recalling how some of his great grandchildren scuttled away after trying to tell them an old war story of his when he was younger.

Orchid didn't think that was such a funny joke, she wouldn't know what to do if Cross Fire was to suddenly fall ill or injured. She couldn't fathom the thought so she shook it from her head. "Haha! I was joking about the duck, honestly just having fun is food enough for me today" She said smiling looking around at the forest, seems to be much more of a plethora of life around now that it had started to grow again.

She went back to his talk about the pack, "I never knew the pack in a normal state, things were kind of stale from the beginning to me." She said looking away. "I was kind of forced on to the pack, they all welcomed me of course, but it was something of a different thing for me, everyone interested in being near me all at once and somewhere deep inside not at all, It was all a bit overwhelming." Lucky Cross Fire was introduced early and it was an ease in the family getting used to him it was not an all at once greeting and Orchid was glad he had that greeting.

She looked at him a bit confused, but she wasn't really confused, the fey stood up and smiled at him, did a half turn and turned again looking herself over, "I'm gonna stay young forever!" She yelled into the forest, she knew it wasn't true, all life come to an end eventually it was the circle although WM got to play with that circle a little eventually it would all have to complete. She turned to CF wanting to play, being free of children got her that way, "One thing the children taught me," her front down her rear up and her tail waving flirtatiously, "is how to play" and with that she pounced at CF

A sad little "aww," escaped from the red brute's maw at Orchid's declaration. "Well I'm happy you care." He said giving his tail a wave. "Yeah I had a popped hip before though, not fun stuff." He gave a few short exales of breath that was a laugh, "But I can fly now so I would probably be alright just would need some company." The brute explained with a sigh. "I know you were kidding about the duck, but I wasn't." The old brute looked around again until they landed on Orchid. "I'll get you a duck dinner someday, that or goose... though I don't really know what the difference is." He gave a little huff of air then a shrug, "One's bigger than the other or something like that."

Cross Fire smile vanished as Orchid told him how life was before he had arrived. It kind of upset him how things were rather forced on her. "Was it just all to much?" He asked then continued, "Or just not what you wanted?" He had heard about it but he still wanted to know more, what happend, how it felt, everything, if there was a burden to bare he wanted to help her.

As her rump flew into the air Cross Fire gave a weird tilt of his head. He never played like that his form of play was beating the hell out of someone in a play fight and he wasn't going to do that to Orchid. "Must be-" He was cut off as she pounced him instant reaction was to dodge then grab hold of her leg, not gently, but instead he just kind of froze. He tumbled over and laid on the ground for a moment just looking at her awkwardly not sure of how to do this whole "gentle" Play thing.

Orchid landed but it wasn't on Cross Fire, she turned to see his face confused, had he never played, not raising pups might just do that to you. Orchid was going to play first she figured she'd answer the questions first. She walked up to the confused CF and slid a paw over his, "I'll keep you company." She said looking him in his eyes, it was a loaded statement but Orchid wasn't ready for anything other than the surface meaning. She smiled, embarrassed at a touch that lasted too long, she moved herself away...ready to try play again.

As she walked she spoke, "It was a bit of both, a bit of neither. Everything I knew was changing, everything I was was becoming someone else, I had finally started to move to my own light...and here I was again being defined by someone else." She sat a few feet away, not out of discomfort...well just cause the grass in that spot looked really really soft. "Everyone was nice, but knowing pack life you don't just come into a family and expect them to really like or know you. I was never given the chance to accept or reject the position, and the pack was never given the chance to accept or reject me." She said her tail wagging a bit, "Now though it's better, I can keep finding my own light and I can be hated or loved in the pack and I am fine with either and in between." She smiled again.

"But we have a problem here." she spoke directly her blue eyes focused, "You will have to learn to play or my pups will think you this mean old man who they can't wrestle with." her tail waved around wildly, "I can teach you how to play, If you let me." She said puffing her chest out in being able to teach Cross Fire anything.

He felt like his heart stopped as she touched his paw. Not sure if he should pull it away he only looked down at the two paws touching one another before finally she pulled it away. Cross Fire was silent for a moment looking up in her eyes trying to contimplate everything she tried to say in that simple statement. He gave a mental shake of his head. Friends, just friends. He had to remind himself for probably the 400th time that day.

He listened to her talk with out really hearing, he hadn't moved just watched her wondering what she really wanted out of that statement still. Touch... something he hadn't had since his younger years. He nodded his head and gave a few, "Mmmhmms" and an "Oh." At the propermoment but her last senctence he had caught clearly. "I'm glad you are happy about that." He managed a weak chuckle happy she was happy.

"Hey I told you how I treat my own family's kids they already know I'm a crodegdy old wolf who does nothing but tells stories." And he could say he was okay with that as well. Well he couldn't, he wanted to be hands on with Orchid's pups, he was very gentle with them he just didn't know how to play with out hurting them. He gave an all out laugh, "If you think you can teach this old wolf some tricks then fine lets give it a go Orchid."

Orchid had felt that same skip in heartbeats. She would not entertain such a notion and so for the millionth time since Black Rain had become alpha she told her self the very same statement that Cross Fire was telling himself, just friends. Orchid would have to face her own inner demons soon enough, the only one coming to her mind right now was her denile for Cross Fire. As she looked him over she noticed that he was looking much better than when they met, in fact they both had changed considerably and the change was made together, so Orchid had plenty of time to get to know the old wolf. With Flaming Rose back he didn't have to fill a void, so he was creating a brand new space in the fey's life.

Orchid had a sneaky feeling that he wasn't paying much attention to her words, which didn't bother her...she found her own mind drifting as she spoke. Her eyes crossed over his frame, he was surely strong, bigger than her, definitely able to make her feel safe. Even without a pack. She didn't know where her mind was going but she was aware it was a dangerous place and chose to come back to reality...snapping back a little after he did. If only I can be happer she thought at his comment, instead, "Yeah, thanks" she said a small smile crossing her maw. Would she ever admit the growing desire inside?

Orchid smiled as CF told her of his own grandchildren, but they were already adults these were pups, "Pups don't understand all that, old man." she said openly flirting again, Orchid did not like to send mixed signals and wanted to stop but her desire for CF caused these actions to come out even with Orchid fighting hard to keep them back. "Well first is knowing when a pup wants to play, front down rear up and usually a run and tackle attempt." She explained then demostrated as she game full speed to tackle him. He didn't expect him to let her tackle him...and she wasn't using full force so it would be a gentle romp around in the forest for the two.

He watched he movements for a time and his emerald eyes widened slightly. The tone of her voice, it was like a ghostly sound in the back of his mind. Brought back memories but from a different fae from a different time. "So what are you going to do when the pups are here Mr. Warrior Man?" It teased he stood almost in shock from the words. He heard what Orchid said and refocused his attention to her as she took the play position and wriggled about then made a dash for him. Though his eyes and ears were on her his body still was frozen and as she tackled him he barely budged and inch.

That tackle though snapped him back for the moment at least. "So down like this?" He asked getting down into what Orchid called a "play posistion" and gave his head a little tilt. He probably looked like something a human would hug to death like that. Bright red and fluffy fur with big emerald eyes his head tilted and rump in the air. Yeah just adorable.

Orchid had not noticed that her words had made Cross Fire think of his own past. If she had known she would have been careful of her words. But since she was wrapped in the thought of playing with an adult rather than pups she could not stop and notice someones all mental thoughts. So as she tackled him she tried to push him over. Orchid let out a wild playful laugh she tried to push him over...her laugh was ligher now, not as earthy as the heavy hearted laugh had been. It was light and airy and held quite the pitch to it...almost pleasing to the ears. "You have to pretend to fall over tough guy" she joked licking him on the cheek. Orchid wasn't thinking of her actions now...this was Orchid free of responsibility and thoughts of what was right and what she couldn't have. At this moment Orchid was acting on many of her desires, touch and showing some affection to CF.

When CF demonstrated the play position she couldn't help but smirk he was just so darn fluffy. "Oh that's so perfect, you sure you never played with pups before?" The teased her tail drifting across his nose as she pass him to try to tackle him again.

He didn't know this stuff and fall over? "R-right." He said then as she licked him wasn't sure how he should react. Cross Fire stopped again his eyes setting on her almost like a warning look before he let the lesson continue. The old red wolf didn't know if he should say anything about it, no not yet he liked it but... it was wrong he couldn't not yet.

Staying down in his play bow he said, "Yeah playing in the old pack was basically a mini fight that you just wouldn't try to kill the other in, basically training." He said with a sigh as her tail flicked under his nose he stood up and backed away slightly motioning for Orchid to stop for a moment. "Orchid." His eyes were on the ground the tone of his voice serious. "I-... We-... We can't." He said obviously in mixed emotions. "I want... well we just can't...." The emerald eyes were still on the ground his eyes in shadow and he sighed. "I dunno what I want.."

Orchid stood stunned, her blue eyes focused her face confused. She took a few steps away from Cross Fire shocked at his words and the sudden pull away, mostly him pulling away, he'd never done that. Her eyes filled with hurt from rejection. although her composure she kept, "I did not mean to, I'm sorry" She said softly looking at her paws embarrassed by everything.

He felt bad as he looked into her hurt eyes. "No, I'm sorry... I'm so confused I want to be with you, but I'm afraid." The old red wolf said, "I mean what could an old brute like me do for you.." He wanted to be with her but at the same time wasn't sure if he deserved her, if it was right to be with her. It was so complicated with Seg's leave from the pack leaving his pups and Orchid behind him steping in as the predominant male figure in their family. He wished that the answers would come to him more easily but at the same time didn't want them to he wanted to figure this all out himself... the right way.
