(300+) Nero has one major wound up across his belly and a minor one on his lip. And his emotional health is probably majorly injured too. July 3rd, just after the believed death of Iago.

Nero ran, stumbled, and crawled for as long as he could. The smell of death clung to him like a parasite. He was bleeding from wounds of his own, most notably the slice that came up from his left hip to the right side of his ribs. The agony near blinded him and his wavering walk only stopped once he got to his sister's weathered door. Peering over his shoulder, he knew it was late. The stars laid themselves out in a beautiful array of shimmering eyes.


They were disappointed in him, he had killed and bloodied himself without mercy. He had sworn that he would not hurt again and now he had done it and the evidence was all over his body and paws. A sob lurched from his throat as he steadied himself on the side of Axelle's home.


How would she regard him? Nero had always been the nice one. He had never had these tendencies for murder, his temper had been under control and one of the tightest bound parts of him. He was shamed that it had been unleashed. He just wasn't able to see anyway that he was in the right. The fight hadn't been fair, the odds unevenly given. Excuse after excuse piled onto his mind as he thought about the incident that had happened barely an hour before.


Forcing his courage and gritting his teeth, he pounded on the door and collapsed against the side of the house. His major wound still bled openly and a smaller gash on his lip wept red tears. Nero was beginning to feel distinctly light headed and slouched, trailing a hand against the door hoping that she would open it to see her failure of a brother. He was the herbarius and he couldn't even patch his own wounds.

Oooh Nero’s gonna have some battle wounds now xD Also, I marked it as mature bc I think Axelle's gonna curse a lot xD Plus, I dropped an F bomb.| 300+ words.

She was alone in the house that night – Itzal, or should she say Eztli, had gone out hunting and she was alone with her daughters. Even though she originally intended to raise them nocturnal, they were still young and they slept much of the day. She had put them to bed just an hour before there seemed to be a strange scent of… blood lingering around the village. At first it was faint, and she went downstairs to make sure her front door was locked as well as all the windows (not that mere glass could stand against a threat). She climbed the stairs and waited for the threat (if it was even one) to come banging on her door – given that it was a polite threat.

She stationed herself on she and Itzal’s bed, with a dagger in her palm and waited. Her ears were alert and keen to all the sounds outside. She could hear the ragged breathing of someone just outside her upstairs window, and then the knock at the door couldn’t come fast enough. He barely had to rap twice before she quickly took on the stairs and ripped open the door with her dagger in the air – but there was no one there in her face. Instead, she could see the red-tinged foot of her brother on her porch, and as her gaze turned upon him, the words flew out of her mouth faster than she could react, ”What the fuck happened to you, Nero?!”

He was the reason for the scent of blood – he was covered in his own, plus someone else’s. He was the source for the ragged breathes out her window – but what the hell happened to him? Axelle came out onto her porch, closing her front door to a crack and examining her brother his pathetic state. He had a large, deep cut across his abdomen and a bloody lip. He looked like he was in terrible condition and it wasn’t a norm for him to have someone else’s blood on his hands, unless… ”Who died?” she demanded, unable to process the situation.

(300+) OOC

The pain was more intense than he could have anticipated. He had never been injured like this before. He'd experienced a rough fall from time to time and even been stabbed by a deer once. This was distinctly different. It felt like his belly was ready to fall apart and it was colder than he expected and the bright red seemed grayer than when it had first spilled. He wasn't sure exactly what he was feeling and the pain was faltering a little and was quickly replaced with exhaustion.


Axelle's arrival jumped him from the fog for a moment but he had trouble focusing on her. No doubt she would be surprised to see him. He was always the good one, never got into fights and never shed another's blood without feeling regret afterward. Nero did feel the regret but he had done much more than spill a few drops. He was positive that Iago was dead. The ashen wolf that had tormented hadn't moved when he stumbled away from the scene. And to return, he wasn't sure if he could, even if he did make it through tonight. Once more he looked at his arm that pressed against his wound. The red stretched beyond his hand and came up to his elbow.


Looking up at her, he could hardly manage a dire wheeze.


A few distorted gulps he was able to croak a few words. Her questions required too many words that he couldn't summon and his only focus was on getting the pain and bleeding to stop or he would be dead. "H...Help, please, A...Axe." It felt his mind was going and he leaned against her house, staining the porch with gore. He hoped she didn't mate him, her children were probably sleeping not far away and it would be a bad morning to stumble upon their uncles corpse at the front door.

Slight PP with him laying down, hope thats ok! | 300+ words.

Her brother’s condition was much more worse than she originally thought. She saw all the blood – his mixed with someone else’s – but hadn’t really realized how much of it was his. There was a nasty wound across his abdomen, and the poor man was about to pass out from blood loss. ”Oh, fuck,” she cursed, knowing that her healing skills weren’t the best – but she could wrap his wound with what she stored in their bathroom. ”Fuck, fuck, fuck… Lay down on your back, hang on.” Axelle quickly burst into the house, causing the door to bang against the wall (and cause the pups to stir upstairs). She ran to the bathroom, gathering all the gauze and wrappings she could find. She had a small jar with what Rio had given her for her wounds a couple years back. There was that, and she collected a bottle of alcohol on her way out to the porch again.

Assuming that her brother had gladly rolled back when she told him to lay down, she began assessing the wound. It was deep, but not deep enough to spill his guts - thankfully. She used a piece of cloth and the alcohol to clean the area around it so that she could see where the laceration was. Once the area around it was clean, and less bloody – she saturated a cleaner part of the cloth and press it against his wound. She knew it would sting, so afterwards she blew lightly on it. ”Stay awake, Nero,” she ordered, fanning the wound once she was done pressing the soaked cloth to it. ”What the hell happened?”

She set the bottle aside and went for the jar of aloe… or whatever ointment was in there. All she knew was that it helped heal her wound quickly, so she’d use it on him in hopes that it would help him out too. His tanned, muscled abdomen was just stained with red, and she wanted to get the image of the wound out of her head – but there was no way to do that unless she covered it. But she was not ready to do that yet.

With careful fingers, she slabbed a lot of the ointment on his wound, making sure not to scratch him or cause him anymore discomfort that she needed to. She looked up at his face, making sure he was awake and conscious – even as he told her broken parts of the story. He didn’t sound good, but she wanted to know more about what happened. ”Who else’s blood is on you?”

(300+) OOC

Nero groaned thickly, and leaned back when prompted. He didn't want to remove his hand from the wound for fear that something would fall out. He'd never seen something so gruesome and didn't want himself to be the star event. Nero had seen the guts spill from unlucky deer and caribou and knew that it wasn't too thick of a barrier. Peering at his wound, he grimaced and leaned his head back, staring at the stars. At least they weren't coated in red, or maybe they were, they were looking awful close together and almost spinning now.


Bleakly, he heard Axelle begin talking to him, nonsense about staying awake. He didn't see how it was possible. There was a dull exhaustion unlike anything he had felt before. It hardly felt like he had committed murder- the thought jerked him awake at once and he began breathing heavily. Iago was dead and his body was out in the woods. Nero almost heaved himself back up but the hand pressed against his wound prevented him. He was too weak to struggle much.


Becoming slightly more aware and much more aware of the pain at his jelly, he managed a few words. "Iago," He very nearly sobbed, "I killed him because he said bad things to me." He coughed raggedly, weary and pained. "That bastard-- I'm just an idiot!" His voice tapered off to dull whines and dry heaves. The pain was causing his stomach to roll and clench. After a few spasms, his stomach seemed to calm but his emotional turmoil was only beginning.


"His bloods all over me, in my mouth..." He hissed, trying to wipe his muzzle with his hands, only to realize they too were covered in blood. His or Iago's he didn't know.

Introducing, annoying nieces! | 300+ words.

Lucky for Axelle, his wound was bad – a lot of the muscle underneath was torn – but not bad enough to spill his insides. She was happy for that, because if it was, she would definitely need Panda to help her on this one. She could dab the ointment all over him and then wrap him up with the bandages she had set beside her – and he should be good with rest afterwards.

Iago? she repeated, faintly remembering him mentioning this name once or twice before. He was a friend of Nero’s, wasn’t he? She always knew her brother was a little more sensitive than she was – but from the abuse that he received from Tyko, she would have assumed that would make him less naïve about things like this – about how people turn on others all the time. His own father turned on him, and now, a friend.

The whisky Napier was clearly upset at this fact, and she wondered if he was more upset at the crime he had just committed or the fact that he killed his friend. Well, she hadn’t seen it as a crime because she hadn’t known Nero to kill without a purpose – let alone kill with any purpose. ”No you’re not, relax,” she growled, pressing the cloth to his wound, and prompting him to lift his back a little so she could wrap it behind him a couple times. ”Your lip is cut – for all you know, it’s your blood.”

Just then, pattering puppy paws thundered down the stairs and the two sisters were at the door before Axelle could close it. ”Lithia, Tzila, go inside,” Axelle ordered, trying to shield them from seeing and closing the door at the same time, but they were slippery little ones. Tzila slipped passed her arms easily, jumping down onto the porch. ”I smell that red stuff – is Uncle Nero okay?” she asked, looking up at her mother as Lithia prowled behind her coming around on the other side to look at the blood-soaked cloth covering her uncle’s wounds. ”What happened to him, Mama? Was he attacked?”

Finally, Axelle was able to scoop both of them up and put them back in the house. They both stood at the doorway peeking out at Nero. ”Sorta,” she answered to both of their questions. Figuring that they’d be exposed to worse things in the future, she didn’t try to stifle her own questions or shut the door in their faces as long as they stayed put. ”So, where’s the body?” Axelle asked, tying the cloth tight so that he’d be able to move around without fear of ‘spillage’, even though there would be none anyway. She nodded to the wound, ”You should really get checked out by Panda, though.”

(300+) OOC

Nero groaned under hand, uncertain of where he stood and how he was going to go about the rest of his life. The blood, whether it be his own or Iagos, was already staining his hands, deepening their already red color. He wasn't sure how he was supposed to go on like this. He'd hurt others before and that had nearly driven him mad but this was a whole new level. In the back of his head, he willed the blood to rush from his body and for him to just die like Iago had. The bully wolf had driven his self esteem to new lows that he hadn't been sure existed.


But Axelle pressed against his wound, quailed the bleeding and while he still felt weak he could feel the veils of death being slowly lifted off of him. He wasn't sure if he appreciated it just yet while pain throbbed through his aching body. His head rolled as she told him to relax though her comforts gave him no peace of mind. He had sank his fangs into the soft throat of that ashen wolf, he knew that the blood was both of theirs. His head was still foggy but with his teeth gritting in pain, he was able to lean up against the wall.


His green eyes hovered on his kin for a moment, he didn't want them seeing him like this but he supposed he could do nothing about it now. He was quickly removed when she asked where the body was and his blood ran cold. "Somewhere out there," He muttered vaguely pointing towards the forest. It was a far way, if he remembered, he had staggered for a long time even to come this close. "Beyond the border." His eyes closed for a moment, the words exhausting him.


They opened for a moment, "No," He coughed at her suggestion. Panda knew a lot but so did Nero and he was far more trusting in his own ability for Panda knew many poisons and if he was surrounded by those for even a moment there was no telling if he would partake in them. "I know the plants that help with pain, at least in that I am no great fool." He leaned back, chest laboring.

You can PP her almost carrying him into the back of the wagon in your post, if you’d like! | 300+ words.

Nero had killed someone – and while it was as natural as ever to her and her father, it was a big deal for him. It could have been because the canine had been a friend – but what was a friend who constantly tormented and talked you down all the time? What kind of friend was Iago really? If Axelle had known just what kind of friend he was – she would have told Nero to kill him.

Still, the deed was done and while she was silently proud of Nero, he still felt like shit about it. They needed to address the situation with straight minds though – they needed to find his body. Nero needed to feel better about this; after all, he lived among outsiders and killers. This was his initiation. He was one of them now, so to speak. ”We have to find the body,” Axelle ordered, rising to her feet in place beside him. She stood over everyone there – an interesting feeling since she was usually the short one. ”Stay here. Don’t move; I’m gonna get the wagon,” she ordered again, stepping over Lithia and stepping down the stairs. ”Tzila, if your uncle moves, bite him,” she called over her shoulder as she disappeared behind the side of the house.

The Napier daughters were confused, lost and unsure why this happened to their uncle – but they weren’t in the mood for 21 questions and neither did their uncle seem to be. He could barely answer their mom’s questions – and those seemed important. A good 15 minutes passed before Axelle came around the side of the house again, with Couer and a wagon in tow behind him. She walked him carefully over the patchy, overgrown grass and stopped him on the road in front of the house. ”Where are we goin, mama?” Tzila and Lithia asked multiple times as Axelle climbed the stairs and bent over next to Nero.

”Girls, just stay right there, please. Let me help Uncle Nero into the wagon, and then I’ll help you two,” she spoke sternly, wrapping one of Nero’s arms around her neck. ”This is probably going to hurt a lot, but I need you to get up and into the back of the wagon somehow.”

(300+) ouch

The prospect of finding the body horrified him and caused a queasiness to rise up in his throat. He felt as though he would be sick if he saw Iago's bloody maw split open in death and his throat flayed open. Mutely, Nero shook his head keeping the need to vomit down as best as he could. "I don't want to look upon that body, I'd rather die than see his gloating face again." He gasped, hissing at the pain and effort it took to speak and breathe. Nero couldn't do much else and fell back with Axelle told him to stay, he wouldn't need to be told twice.


His malachite eyes rested on his nieces for a moment realizing just how confused they must be. Nero tried to muster a bloody smile but it looked more like a dire imitation of death itself. "It's alright, Uncle Nero's gonna be just fine." He groaned, feeling the exact opposite of fine. The agony in his belly felt like it was spreading to the rest of him and it felt like an eternity before Axelle returned with the wagon. He very bleakly looked at it and blinked a few times. "I told you... I... I'm not looking for that body." He wheezed, exhausted by small bursts of talking.


As his sister hoisted him up, he very nearly collapsed again from the searing in his abdomen. He felt bad having her drag him around as he was nearly two feet taller than her. So his tired feet scrabbled from traction and he close to fell in the wagon than lay there, letting out a sharp yelp. "Just... take me home and give me sometime to make me sleep..." His mind was too foggy to think but he tried to summon the right herbs. "I should... have some..." But ultimately, he was helpless laying in the back of a wagon like a corpse.

Ooc text here. | 300+ words.

Axelle was strong, but she struggled underneath the almost dead weight of her brother. ”Well, you’re gonna have to… The back of the wagon is the only place we can put him,” she grunted, getting Nero to his feet finally. They carefully took the porch, then the stairs; Nero was quite wobbly and he hadn’t even tried to sit properly in the wagon when they approached it. He plopped back there with a loud yelp, and Axelle backed up unsure of whether to cross her arms or scratch her head. This won’t do; the way he was stationed back there – Nero took up the whole cart. If they were to find the body together, Nero would have to either move the hell over a little, or deal with his friend’s corpse laying on top of him.

”Ugh, ok. Will you at least tell me where to look then? We can’t just leave his body out there – it needs to be burned or something,” she growled, deciding to just push him upwards as close to the top of the wagon as she could. He was way too tall to be laying in the back, so his legs bent over and would drag on the ground underneath them. The black and white Atheed looked back to her house to find her daughters quietly watching from the porch, curiosity and concern brimming, almost to the point of making them step off of the porch. ”Come on, girls,” she called to them, and they both dove off of the porch and raced over to her. One by one, she picked them up and placed them in the back of the wagon with Nero. ”Stay close to that corner, so you don’t fall out and get ran over, ok?” Axelle ordered them, and they both nodded; their eyes switched from her to Uncle Nero. ”Make sure he doesn’t fall out,” she called over her shoulder, walking to the front of the wagon and climbing up onto the driver’s seat. She told Couer to go, and the horse began with a slow walk.

Looking over her shoulder, she could see his tan, wrapped body out of the corner of her eye, ”Where do you live again?” She remembered him possibly mentioning that he lived in the village – which would be a huge convenience at that moment – but she was still unsure.

(300+) OOC

Nero simply groaned quietly in the cart feeling like a massive pile of rocks rather than an actual canine. There was a certain disembodied feel from the injury that he didn't like that much. He was too tired to continue talking and it was up to Axelle to respect his wishes. The pale wolf never wanted to see the corpse of his enemy again, it was nothing he wanted to experience and all he saw was blood and it filled his mouth and he couldn't move anymore. He vaguely sensed his sister's annoyance at him. She was a fighter, she knew how to deal with these wounds and Nero had never fought a real battle before.


His nieces hopped into the cart as well and he watched them. Nero hoped they didn't fall off but he supposed they were probably on orders that he didn't fall off either. It was just as well, he felt like a child laid out and helpless on the cart. He was glad that it was night time and the village was quiet for he doubted he would be able to stand the peering stares of his pack mates for they would have plenty of time to stare at his injuries as they healed.


She said something to him and he glanced at her, looking around as he had forgotten where he was. He waved a blood crusted hand, "A house... Here, numbered...Eight?" He thought that was his house. He had worked hard on it so it would be comfortable for him and his cat. There was no one else to live with him and he liked his space as well sometimes the life of a pack made him feel claustrophobic and having his own space made those feelings less intense.

You can end with your post - if you like! If he tells her a location, she helps him inside - if not, she reluctantly helps ;)

She ordered Couer to walk, and he headed in the direction of the playground and the broken angel statue. There really was no quick way they could go around without taking the wagon into rugged territory – the land behind the park that was littered with trees and rocks; surely, that ride would throw everyone from the wagon. For a while, everyone was silent, except for Tzila and Lithia speaking to each other in the back corner. She heard their gentle voices, but couldn’t make out what they were saying over the wagon’s noise. It wasn’t important anyway. ”Nero, tell me where the fucking body is!” she demanded, looking over her shoulder in attempt to look at him. Despite Nero not wanting to talk about it, she was going to make him give her a damn answer!

Or else she wasn’t going to help him home.

In a short time, they reached the front of his house – number eight, like he said. She dumped down from the driver’s seat and rounded the back of the cart. Nero was a pitiful mess – she would be relieved to see him inside his house, laying down on something comfortably. Still, even though she cared for him, her eyes still searched him for the answers she demanded a few minutes before.

(300+) Fin~

His sister was certainly the demanding sort and Nero had never been that. Of course, he loved his sister and she had cared for him and stopped the bleeding that had left him panicked and blank minded. But she was concerned about bodies and murder, even if she probably silently approved of him killing Iago. The fact was, Nero could hardly remember where Iago had dropped. They had been in a nondescript part of the land, surrounded by trees and undergrowth, obscuring their activity. Other than the trail of blood he had left, Nero doubted that even he would be able to find where Iago lay.


Axelle expected an answer and he didn't respond at first, allowing the cart to bounce along with a quiet air. He listened to his nieces speak to each other quietly, allowing the normalcy of their voices give him some strength. He didn't know the girls well but they were family to him and he hated that he was causing them to worry about him like this. Perhaps from the bleeding and the lightness of being carried in a cart, a certain lightness had fallen on him like a layer of pillowy snow. He didn't care and his mind drifted to places he wasn't sure of.


As the cart came to a sudden halt, he peered at his bicolored sister glowering down at him. A limp hand flopped onto his face. "I can't remember," He moaned, flashes of blood spotting across his eyes. "It was out there, in the woods, I couldn't find it even if I could walk that long."


He doubted that she was happy with his answer but there were no words left to come out of his mouth. After he spoke, he felt almost faint and struggled to rise from his makeshift bed and into her reluctantly helping arms. The stumbling journey from the cart to his home seemed like an eternity but he settled eventually in his own bed, draped by furs and left only to the nightmares that plagued him as he melted off into sleep.
