[DND] Footloose
Raeka - 22nd June

Lucia Amarok
Bright Star




As soon as she woke up that morning she knew that it had returned at last. She had wondered and pondered upon it for the last few months, watching her mother and the other females as they subsequently went through the same thing. She tried to be logical about it but when it came to instincts like this there was no logic at all. The female rolled over onto her back and wriggled about in an undignified manner, pressing her scent into the dirt below her. The common dens would soon be flooded with it if she remained within their caverns much longer and everyone would know of her state, if they didn't already. She found that instead of being ashamed of herself that this time she wanted to embrace the feeling, the heightened sense of touch. She wanted to connect with everyone around her.

A cold nose budged in next to her and Lucia yipped and playfully snapped at it, rolling back to her feet and jumping onto Saki's back, taking the crippled apprentice healer to the floor and engaging in a play fight. Lucia was always careful though of Saki's missing foot. Saki, delighted that her sister would play with her like this whined and wagged her tail and tugged on Lucia's ear. The sisters tussled for a while together, Lucia slowly filling up the dens with the heat scent that came from her. But all too soon it was time for Saki to report to the medical hut for a lesson on healing. Lucia followed her out of the den and then sat there whining as Saki trotted away reluctantly.

Out here there was another that smelled as she did, more than one actually. She recognized the scents of Hartt and Raeka and thought maybe they had all joined together instinctively so that their pups would be born together and maybe have a better chance of surviving as well as young playmates to grow with. The idea of having pups still filled her with strange feelings and was something she wasn't completely ready to inspect so she shook off her fur and instead of sitting about moping she took off following one of the other heat scents, figuring that one of the other females would want to play.

Chance chose that she followed Raeka's scent instead of Hartt and she was soon racing along keeping the Alphess's scent within her trail. As she finally did come upon the gold and brown Alpha she dropped her front end to the ground and raised her rear, fluffy tail wagging and ears twitching between pulled against her head and pushed forwards in play. She growled, again in play and yipped too, darting backwards and forwards, trying to entice the female to chase her.

Although she had been in heat only for a few days, Raeka felt as if her cycle was quickly coming to a close. The burning desire was closer to a subtle flare rather than an intense way of heat. Perhaps it was her age or maybe it was the fact that Bertolt and Petra were still relatively young. Either way, the entire affair was passing her by without much pomp and circumstance.


Raeka wasn't really doing much of anything that day. She had made rounds previously and there were others marking and guarding the boarders that day. Raeka had eaten a large meal yesterday and her desire for food had dwindled to nothing. Kiara was watching after Petra and Bertolt. Therefore, Raeka found herself with absolutely nothing to do but wander.


The scent of heat became ripe as it mixed with her own. Raeka froze, her great head turning back as her golden ears perked to listen to the sound of approaching footsteps. Lucia soon came bursting through the underbrush in an immediately dipped into a play bow. Amber eyes watched as the younger female danced and yipped at her. She stood for a moment, simply gazing impassively at the young Amarok.


Finally, Raeka broke down and her tail began to wag. She too dipped into a play bow and let loose a bark before charging after the younger female. Raeka nipped at Lucia playfully as she darted back and forth. If Lucia took off, Raeka was ready to peruse.

So sorry for the crazy wait here!

She was undignified but not ungraceful with her tail arching as it was and yet Raeka watched her impassively just long enough for Lucia to begin to feel the tricklings of embarrassment and regret for her actions when the chocolate Alphess. Then without much preamble Raeka's tail began to wag and Lucia grinned, all momentary embarrassment forgotten. An Omega at heart even during the midst of her own emotional and hormonal up and down ride. She danced back and forth as Raeka too dropped to a play bow and barked, she snapped at the air playfully, almost daring the Alpha to charge, which she did.

Lucia nipped back and even managed to lick the other female on her muzzle before throwing herself to the side, inadvertently tripping herself but turning the tumble into a roll and quickly regaining her feet darted away from any incoming attack. Her movements were giddy and untrained, tongue hanging from her maw in a wolfy smile. Then as suddenly prey as she had been hunter she took off, fleeing from the Alphess with not as much speed as she was capable. Looking back over her shoulder to make sure the other female was following her.

Much like her mother, Lucia was an omega. Her giddy and playful nature broke through even during the difficult times in her young life. The smaller female bounced back and forth as she tried to egg Raeka into playing with her. No matter how impassive Raeka tried to be, there was no way she could say no to such a tempting invitation.


Raeka was happy to take up Lucia's challenge and charge forth into a flurry of playful bites and licks before the young Amarok tumbled to the ground. The earthen queen's head twisted to the side as she dipped into a play bow, watching as Lucia scrambled to her feet and darted away. Pushing off, Raeka charged after the young wolf. She rose to her hind legs, aiming to come down on top of Lucia and get a playful hold of the little female's scruff. Yet Lucia darted away as quick as a doe and Raeka landed on the mossy ground.


Without missing a beat, she dashed after Lucia. However, neither went at any prodigious speed. Raeka let loose a small howl before snapping playfully at Lucia's heels, stopping short before her teeth ever touched the white fur. As the two wolves darted through the woods, Raeka could feel her heart race. Excitement and thrills ran down her spine and she picked up speed to match Lucia. Raeka twisted and lept towards Lucia, her paws rising to bat at the younger female.

Out of character goes here!

She felt more than saw the approaching Alphess and put on an extra burst of speed, dodging Raeka's attempt to leap at her and grab her by the scruff. Lucia was a lot younger that the queen and with that youth came all of the agility and energy with it, not that she would count the aging female out of shape or too old to keep up. They were a contrasting pair, with Lucia holding the vibrancy of the young and all of the fleeting emotions that came with it and Raeka the beauty of wisdom and knowledge. But as she ran from the chocolate huntress she was just another Sister. Another one to play with and enjoy the good times whilst they lasted, to share the heat and good fortune of summer.

Ashen paws struck the ground, and pale ears folded back to catch Raeka's small howl, her tongue lolled and the Amarok female let out a few rapid barks of excitement. While she did Raeka sped up to catch her up and then sudden weight threw Lucia completely off balance and her legs flew our from beneath her. Together the pair rolled, their tumble cushioned by ferns and bracken so that Lucia felt no pain from the fall. Undeterred that she ended up on the bottom of the two wolf pile Lucia immediately set about covering as much as Raeka's face and chest as she cool with licks.

The differences in their age mattered little to the earthen queen as she charged ahead, paws slapping the ground as she weaved through the forest after Lucia. Raeka had size and experience on her side and she wasn't old enough to be called failing. Golden ears flattened against her head as she pushed forward, closing the gap between the two of them. Yet, Lucia's agile youth allowed her to avoid the attack. Raeka stumbled for a moment, regaining her balance as the ivory wolf surged ahead. With a great leap, Raeka quickly returned to her previous pace and dashed after Lucia.


Excitement soared through her body with every beat of her heart and her tail wagged gaily behind her as the two sped through the pack lands. A fallen tree blocked her path, yet a single bound quickly put the log behind her. The distance between them shrank and the Earthen queen howled again. Playful yips erupted from the younger wolf, encouraging Raeka to dash forward. With the surge of energy, Raeka swung out before turning to collide with Lucia in a playful tumble.


Paws flew into the air as the pair tumbled into the underbrush, causing any nearby animals to scurry away in fright. Amber fur blended with Lucia's snowy coat as the fell over one another. When the world stopped turning, Raeka stood and loomed over the younger female. Smiles stretched across both of their faces and Raeka playfully began to nip at Lucia. She had to stop though as Lucia proceeded to shower her with licks that touched every exposed part that Lucia could reach. Laughter broke from Raeka as she backed away from the sticky onslaught. Dipping her head, Raeka nipped at Lucia's legs and muzzle to try and get the upper hand.

Experience, age and knowledge would always beat out youthful exuberance, there was simply no other way. The young would learn from those older and wiser than themselves and this day Lucia learned that although she were fast and fleet footed, Raeka was faster and stronger. They rolled as two pups wrestling for a favorite chew toy, colors clashing and molding together. Her tongue caught whatever fur it could before Raeka pulled herself away, looming high over the still laying Lucia and in that moment just for a second around her the world froze. The scent of Lucia's fertile time swirled around the pair of them, heady and strong and Lucia was struck with meaning in those few everlasting seconds.

In another place, another pack, another time this situation could have been a whole lot different. Raeka standing so high above her could have teeth bared to attack her for daring to become receptive in Raeka's pack. Light nips that came in slow motion to her legs and muzzle could have been deep and painful, viciously tearing her flesh. She was young but their history was ancient, and her instincts were so strong. She could see it within her mind and feel it as thought barely remembered wounds in her skin, the pain and suffering of females harassed and hurt by their leading female, forced onto their backs to bare vulnerable throats against an endless nature made ire for which they were blameless and yet held accountable and guilty.

In those few seconds Lucia looked up at the amber and brown Alphess and felt the true fear of those long gone females, a type she had never felt before in her young life. And then it was gone, leaving behind the knowledge that she was so so fortunate. Danube eyes looked up at Raeka and were filled with endless love and respect, a devotion so strong it was almost blind. The leader who ruled with caring and kindness gained the love and trust of her followers, the one who reigned with fear and pain gained only hatred. The pair were similar and yet completely opposite, Alpha to Omega and yet they had walked the same path of pure wolves who had been made into what they were by the will of the world, into Something More.

The other female's laughter rang through her head, and her tail thumped at the ground behind her, sweeping away fallen leaves and twigs. Her own laughter joined in, her eyes now full of mirth. Lucia lunged forwards to try and nip at Raeka's paws not far from her muzzle, rolling to her own feet and crouching low to the ground as though to make a leap at the brown leader.

The scent of heat aside, Raeka was rather enjoying herself with the other female. Playtime was exactly what she needed and Lucia was just as good as her mother when it came to relaxing, if not better. Thankfully, Lucia possess mother's unfortunate disposition during heat. Raeka wasn't sure she could take Kiara's anger more than once a year.


As a former non-shifter, Raeka had suffered under her mother's watch during each heat cycle. The old female had taken to harassing and bullying Raeka every time she went into heat, making Raeka's life miserable until stress eventually shut down her body and ended the heat early. There had been one time when one of Raeka's sisters had managed to get pregnant despite the constant harassment. The fallout of their mother's fury was enough to make Raeka shiver.


What had meant to be a game though quickly gained an air of fear as Lucia's eyes went wide. Her scent completely changed and Raeka stopped once she realized what had occurred. Although the fear lasted only for the briefest of moments it was enough. Raeka's ears flicked backwards and her tail lowered as she stepped away from Lucia. Her head lowered slightly and worry filled her eyes as she carefully watched the younger wolf. Although New Dawn was a "natural" pack, the old rules didn't always apply. The last thing Raeka wanted was to alienate her female members.


Are you alright?

So sorry for the crazy wait here!

There was not much changed about the Amarok female, even through her heat she was the same levelheaded yet playful individual, one that could control herself around the males of the pack. No mated female or male without a mate would have to fear Lucia acting inappropriately and causing upset amongst the ranks. She was just not built that way. Never one to put herself above others and be a threat to their secure home. Her one time with Caspian was brief, she had felt a fierce lust but it had flashed and burnt out very quickly. Her strange love of Thironi was, thankfully, slowly dwindling too. Lucia was just unlucky at finding a good mate for herself, a source of constants distress for her.

Her leap was stopped before it even started though as Raeka took a step away from her and pulled her ears back, lowering her tail. Concerned that she had done something wrong by accident the Amarok tucked her own tail, looking at the Alphess with confused and anxious eyes. Uncertain as to whether she should move out of her partial crouch or drop to the ground and so the female froze in her movements. Of course she was scared of being punished for some perceived wrong, but what motivated Lucia was the desire to not cause problems and strife. Raeka's question only caused her further bewildered turmoil.

Her answer was hesitant, as though it were a trick question, "Yes?"

The litters of pups that Raeka had watched grow were ready to take on mates and have pups of their own. That very thought made Raeka feel old, no ancient. She was one of the oldest wolves in the pack, made even more so by the advanced aging of the non-luperci. Her body was physically older that those of a luperci-born wolf of the same age. The pups of New Dawn only made Raeka feel her age even more. They grew way to fast.


The scent of heat was thick and made Raeka wonder what kind of mother Lucia would become. Surely she would be at least as good as her mother, if not better judging by the younger wolf's amicable nature. While Kiara was pleasant and submissive most of the time, she did have a tendency to become aggressive during heat. Many females changed once their season came. Yet, Lucia by some gentle moon's grace, stayed a kind creature. The other question was what kind of mate the ivory female would choose. What kind of male could catch the young beauties eye?


All thoughts of mates and play died as the situation turned suddenly serious. Lucia's fear and Raeka's response sent the game spiraling into tension and unease. Raeka stepped back, trying to give her subordinate space, yet it only seemed to make Lucia even more agitated. The young wolf's ears flattened and her tail became curled beneath her body as she anxiously responded to Raeka. A flash of fear broke through Raeka as she wondered if she had somehow become like her mother without realizing it. Ambery eyes hesitated as she scanned the younger wolf carefully, wondering if she had perhaps caused some injury. The disbelief in her face was apparent. Are you certain? If something is bothering you, you may speak freely to me about it.

Truth be told for a while before her Change Lucia had been hoping that Thiorni would stand forwards and claim her as his mate but he had never done so and then she had been turned defending her sister and everything had fallen apart. Thiorni had treated her like she had some contagious disease which she supposed she did. It had crushed every dream she'd had regarding the older male and she was still trying to put herself back together for the aftermath. She might flirt a tiny bit with some of the unattached males but it was nothing serious. Lucia was too busy trying to deal with the pain of her rejection to do much else with another male right now.

Raeka didn't appear to believe her answer which sent Lucia's mind reeling about how she could make this situation turn for the better than the downward spiral it seemed to have become trapped in. The female was still frozen in her partial crouch and her posture still submissive, "I..I don't know. You suddenly stopped and I thought I might have done something wrong. I..I didn't want to make you angry." Her eyes shifted constantly in an effort to look at Raeka and yet not stare directly at her, wide and now somewhat frightened by the happenings the pupils shrunk to pinpricks. She was still braced as though waiting for someone to strike her.

Lucia was fragile. As hard as that was to admit, there was no denying the truth. Not that Raeka could blame the poor female. She had been attacked on a few occasions, lost her father in a horrific tragedy, and been forced to accept the Change. The pain that the younger female had been through was something Raeka couldn't even begin to imagine or empathize with. Especially when it came to shifting. While they were both former non-shifters, Raeka had walked into the Change willing and knowingly. She had accepted, although not embraced, her new abilities. Lucia's choice had been stolen from her in a cruel twist of fate. The only thing she could offer was sympathy. Lucia was a fractured as struck glass and had already fallen a part once before. It made Raeka wary of the younger female, worried that at such a delicate time, she might inadvertently do something to harm her subordinate.


Sure enough, their play spiraled down into a whirlwind of uneasiness. While Raeka tried her best to right the situation, it only seemed to make the problems grow. Lucia stood frozen in a partial crouch that could only have been more submissive if she rolled onto her belly. To the Alphess, it half looked liked she might. Her answer was stammered and nervous and Lucia's shifting eyes didn't rest on anything for more than a second. Raeka was helpless as she watched the young Amarok descend into panic. Golden ears folded back against her head and she lowered her gaze as well, trying to make herself look as small and non-threatening as possible. You can relax. I'm not angry with you Lucia. I stopped because you looked scared and I was worried for you. I assure you that you have done nothing wrong.


Raeka leaned forward slowly, carefully as she moved to gently nuzzle Lucia's shoulder. If Lucia balked too much, she would pull back. I promise, I'm not mad.

well i made myself cry again x3

Lucia wouldn't say to herself that she was fragile but she would probably be lying to herself really. But if presented the same choice again, to run and retain her pure blood or to save her crippled sister and be Changed she would always choose the latter. In her mind it wasn't even a question of choosing, there literally was no choice to her. As much as she had found the luperci strange and scary, her pure blood was not worth the life of her sibling no matter how much she longed to be a normal wolf again. She'd make the same choice over and over again for any that called New Dawn home. That was where Lucia's strength lay, she might not be physically strong or all too mentally inclined but she was brave. For her New Dawn had took in she and her mother, New Dawn was her family, and the Amaroks never left family behind or let them suffer when they could intervene. She might be frightened, heck she might be terrified but she would always do the right thing no matter how hard the option was and how easy the alternative.

She breathed a little more easily as Raeka spoke and at least stopped looking like she was devolving into panic. She stood from her partial crouch up properly. "Okay. I'm sorry." She was apologizing for being flighty and easily panicked. She nuzzled the Queen back, licking her cheek. "I was just thinking that, New Dawn is lucky to have you as our Alphess. That in another pack a leader might not be so kind to.. females.. that are... like me... right now. And I could feel it inside my chest that I was right and it scared me a bit that there are leaders like that." Everything Lucia spoke rang from her as truth, it was what she thought.

Finally Lucia opened up to her. At last, the young Amarok gave way and spilled her mind freely before the Alphess. Lucia's features softened and she rose to a standing position. The tension seemed to dissipate and ease returned to the two females. With a quick apology and gentle nuzzle, it was over. The earthen queen gladly returned the affection, enjoying the close contact as only a wolf could. Raeka sat back, listening intently to the younger female as she spoke of her fear and thoughts. Surprise darkened Raeka's features and her mind reeled back although her face quickly returned to calm. She wondered if Lucia knew just how right she was.


In truth, Petra and Bertolt were her first litter. Raeka used to look towards her seasons with absolute dread as she knew what terror it would bring. Her mother was never the nicest person, but whenever a female went into heat her mother turned into a complete nightmare. Raeka could still remember the brutal beatings, the constant badgering, and even the times that she had been run off with complete clarity. Those horrendous days stalked Raeka like a shadow, reminding her of the cruel rule she once suffered under.


Despite the trauma, Raeka could never quite blame her mother for her actions. At least not when it came to her daughters being in heat. They were a pack filled with non-shifters and the laws of the earth bound them as close as any other creature. Food was difficult to come by, and even in the seasons of plenty it was hard to get enough to eat. If all the females had gotten pregnant like the did in New Dawn, her old pack would have starved long ago. They simply couldn't afford the extra mouths. New Dawn was lucky, and so were subordinates like Lucia.


"You needn't be afraid Lucia. Not of me nor any other leader. In fact, I look forward to your first litter of pups. I'm sure you will be a mother like no other."

sorry sorry!


There was a flickering of expression, a nuance to Raeka's face that instantly told Lucia that she was right. The darkening of emotion and Lucia also knew Raeka had experienced such treatment at the hands of her own Alpha female. It wasn't pity that consumed Lucia but something she couldn't identify. It was a mixture of sorrow and regret that Raeka had been through such a thing but there was also understanding too. New Dawn was a pack luckier than most of feral natures, they had some very skilled wolves and a lot of advantages over natural wolves. She could almost emphasize with a pack that didn't have those advantages, that would have to limit their newborns to keep up with food demands. There had been some times within New Dawn where Lucia had missed a meal or two but she had never starved.

She felt heat rise up to her pale cheeks as Raeka complimented her. "Oh.. I don't know.. I wouldn't know how to be a mother, not really." Sure she looked after her brothers and sisters and the pack's pups but that wasn't the same really as being a full time mother. Lucia knew she was also kind of lying to herself, she had hunted for them, she had taught them to live, she had punished and rewarded, she had done everything a mother would do. She could not be more prepared for motherhood if she tried.

Her ears pulled back to half for a moment, "Besides... nobody wants to take me for a mate.. how can I have pups when no male will stand with me?" Thiorni's rejection, although now understood, still stung at the young female. There was a lot of fear within her; fear of failure, or rejection, of exile, fear of disappointing her mother. There was also a lot of insecurity in the Amarok princess, she could almost not expect a strong dominant female like Raeka to understand, surely she had always been confident of herself and her direction, of her place in the grand scheme of things. Every time Lucia think she had it down, the ground was pulled from beneath her feet and she was dumped into chaos.

A half snort and half giggle chocked its way past Raeka's lips as Lucia claimed that she had no idea how to be a mother. Lucia had inherited her mother's grace with puppies and worked wonders around the pups of the pack. She was an excellent sitter and her gentle nature could never be underestimated. If Lucia were any more prepared to have pups, she would already be pregnant. Soft eyes and an easy smile turned towards Lucia and Raeka shook her head. You would make an excellent mother. More so than most. There is no doubt in my mind that you are absolutely prepared. You have raised your siblings and many of the young wolves in New Dawn. Never underestimate yourself Lucia. Doing so will only lead to failure. Have confidence.


For all of the preparation that Lucia had done, the fact that she remained without a mate put a major damper on any plans she might secretly hold. Without the other half of the equation, Lucia would never become a mother. Raeka's smile fell slightly as she empathized with the younger females pain. The alphess had been without a mate until she met Zalen. She knew all to well what it was like to wait with little hope. Raeka looked off into the distance as she contemplated Lucia's question. You can't. Raeka gave a slight sigh before she continued. For all the wishing you do, unless you have a mate you will never be a mother.


Amber eyes turned back to Lucia as she watched the younger female's reaction. The truth was harsh and although Raeka had tried to keep her voice as gentle as possible, there would be no softening such a blow. If you want a mate Lucia, you're going to have to seek one out on your own. You can't just wait for him to fall into your paws. The world simply doesn't work like that. If you want a mate, if you really want to be a mother, you have to accept the fact that you're going to have to start looking outside of the pack. It may even mean you have to leave.

sorry sorry!


She felt bashful as Raeka complimented her, the pink tinge rising beneath her pale furred cheeks. She didn't think that what she did was anything all too special, she took a great joy in caring for the pups as well as feeling honored that their parents trusted her enough to be their nanny. In reality Lucia couldn't see just how relied upon she actually was, without her as the obvious babysitter and Delta for the parents to come to, secure in the knowledge that she was a perfect surrogate parent, their attempts to find a sitter would have been all that much harder. Not that there wasn't an abundance of others to help take care of children but that Lucia was always available no matter the time of day or night or how she was feeling. She always said yes.

She did try to take strength from Raeka's words, and the idea of being more confident in herself. Maybe if she was more sure of her place then she would have better opportunities to search for a mate. She did already know the answer to the question that she asked so Raeka's answer didn't surprise her all too much, just a sigh of acceptance broke her maw. She nodded along with the Alphess' words, knowing already each as it came. The answers were obvious of course Lucia was just trying to blind herself to them. But one thing did strike out that she had not been expecting, and her eyes widened, the very idea of it was horror for her,

"Leave New Dawn? I can't leave, New Dawn is my home. I belong here, with all my family and friends and Sisters and Brothers." The idea of leaving her family behind was repulsive but Lucia recognised that it might well come down to the choice between her family and a future for her own bloodline. The female felt disheartened by the impending decision, knowing that Raeka herself had left her birth pack to find a mate in Zalen.

OOC — shall we end this?


The horror on Lucia's face made Raeka's golden ears fall and her gaze narrow as she looked at the younger female. Kiara was known for her overprotective mothering, but perhaps she had babies Lucia too much. The Amarok female's reaction was that of a pup's, fearful of leaving her home. Still, it's not like Raeka could exactly blame Lucia for thinking in such a way. After all Lucia had been through, it wasn't entirely surprising.


Raeka's tail flicked divisively as her gaze returned to normal. Sometimes, leaving the pack may be your only option if you wish to find a mate. But, finding a mate is not necessarily your only choice. You have plenty of brothers and sisters to continue on your family line. It doesn't have to go through you. If you think staying here is where you will do best, then stay. Grow with us and become a corner stone of this pack. However, Raeka paused, her amber gaze tracing Lucia's body carefully before continuing. "Lucia, understand this, I don't want to see you go. I would rather you stayed with the pack. However, you can not close that path off to yourself. There are many reasons to leave a pack, and not all of them involve finding a mate.


The earthen queen stood and gently shook herself. Keep your options open. Raeka had left to not only find herself a mate, but to create a family for herself where she was free of her mother's control. Lucia was part of that family as much as her own children. Yet, Raeka hated to see Lucia close herself off completely from any path outside of New Dawn. Sometimes, change was necessary to continue forward.

She realised that she sounded so young, her inexperience with the world outside showing but she didn't see any way around it. Thiorni's words of her being childish coming back to her. She was naive, that much she knew. Lucia was scared of the outside because of the bad things that had happened to her and her family, in another stranger pack, who would be there to watch her back as closely as her brothers and sisters did? The pale Amarok sighed deeply, things were never ever simple. Life was hard and complicated, often with rules that were not explained. But she bucked herself up, straightening up from her slumped posture, sucking in a breath. She nodded her head, even if she did not agree, she felt the reasoning within her, "I understand Raeka."

She watched the earthen Queen raise herself and shake out her fur. Their little game had turned into something a lot more serious and Lucia also understood that Raeka's advice was valuable, the female was wise with her years of experience. She had been torn apart before but if Lucia was good at one thing then it was putting herself back together. Maybe in a year or two she would feel differently, she was painfully aware of her own youth especially compared to the likes of her mother and Raeka.

She stood too now, it was obvious their discussion was finished and she was supposed to think on what the Alphess had said. She gave the chocolate dam a half smile, it was uncertain. "Okay... I'm going to go see if I can find something to eat. I will talk to you later, Raeka." Another tail wag and a quick lick to the underside of the larger female's muzzle and Lucia was gone, disappearing into the underbrush as though she had never been there at all, leaving behind just the lingering scent of her heat.
