LOCATION: Central Arachnea's Revenge
[Foredated: September 20th 2014]

A fading scent trail that smelled of pine. Silent pawsteps against the earth. His fulvous fur brushed against the boughs of mighty trees, the forest conifers that stood tall and evergreen. Solitary and alone, Maciel moved through Arachnea's Revenge. Spidersilk marked his fur with white, but he neither noticed nor cared. He lifted his nose, examining the scents carried by the breeze.


The coywolf felt far from home.
In reality, he was not terribly far: Cour des Miracles was only about a day's travel away. Yet to be this far from pack territory made him uncomfortable. In his mind, neutral territory was a very dangerous place to be. And he was right. Here, there were no rules, no justice system, albeit for the moral laws that defined the individuals that lived within this wilderness. Remembering his sister (and the loners who had killed her, too), he knew all too well that those moral laws were sometimes... lacking.


It was only now that he had felt brave enough to venture out into the unknown. His reasons for the journey were not due to a thirst of exploration, however... it was to the pursuit of knowledge. Once he had joined the Court, it had not taken him very long to realise that non-Luperci like him were built for one thing: hunting. Ever since that realisation he had decided that it would be wise to develop his skills further. Not only would such an action be beneficial to his him, but, more importantly, to his pack.


One part of his plan was to visit other areas, those he had never seen before. Ethereal Eclipse and Serena Reserve were already both familiar, and he knew the forests and rivers of Cour des Miracles territory inside out, so he had chosen to go northward instead. So far the prey remained roughly the same as those he had hunted further towards the south (albeit with the absence of any flying squirrels), but there were significant differences in the landscape. The trees here were of a different species, and he had come across some strange sights on his journey, namely glacial erratics and drumlins.


But it was no use wandering in memory. He had eaten earlier that day - several rodents, including mice - but still wanted to scout out the area and learn more about the place. He was also going to stay here for another day, and was looking for an abandoned den or other place suitable for overnight rest.

Orion North

Oh, who would ever wanna be king?


It had been a month since Orion had his fateful encounter with Ramsay, never loosing sight of the moon as it cycled to indicate the passing of time, and it dawned upon him that he had been poking through the lands for almost three fortnights. It was hard to believe that time was passing by so quickly — it seemed like only a moon cycle ago that he was running with his home to his back. But that was winter, and fall was due to come soon. Two whole seasons had passed since he rid himself from the North to save his life.

The day had been routine — waking up in the morning, rousing Ramsay awake to tell him he was going off for the day, and leaving their shelter they had found during the night to go exploring. As the two travelers ventured deeper into the lands, he found that things had begun to change. They had left the plains near the mountains and had begun walking deeper into thick woods, trees thick and strong instead of narrow and tall. He hadn't been in such a wood ever since he entered Nova Scotia, and the change of pace left him staring around in slight wonder.

His wonderment was also a distraction. Caught up with looking up at the trees and seeing what light could get through the green leaves, he padded through some thin undergrowth and was not aware that he was alone. The scent of another hit him too late, and he stared wide-eyed in surprise at the canine that was only a couple of meters before him. Usually he would plan encounters with others before approaching him, but because of his carelessness, he simply stepped into the canine's path, and embarrassment filled him as he looked at the other male he suddenly happened upon.

Actually managed to type this up minutes before class started! :D PM if any changes are needed!

If Orion was embarassed about the manner of his arrival, then Maciel certaintly outranked him in fear. Having never caught the loner's scent, his sudden movement and appearance took the Seigneur completely by surprise, as if the non-Luperci had simply exploded into being mere metres in front of him. With a yelp he leaped immediately backwards, ears flattened against his skull and sharp teeth bared in preparation for attack, but that attack never came. Eventually, as he stared intently at the newcomer, Maciel realised certain aspects of the new coywolf's identity: youthful - approximately the same age as him - and around the same height as him as well, it seemed. He also recognised the expression on the other's face to be not one of malevolence, but simply of awkwardness, and so calmed down slightly and began to regain his composure, although he made no movement back towards Orion. The only differences he had been able to establish so far between them (by scent and vision alone, of course) was their colouration, pack and percentage of coyote blood.


Indeed, Maciel was familiar with both the scents of Luperci and non-Luperci, and he could tell which one of the two Orion was. His fears had been extinguised as a result, and in his mind he silently assured himself of his safety,


'He is no threat,' he convinced himself, 'We are of equal strength. He will not attack.'


'And he is not Luperci.'


"Who are you?" he asked aloud, his voice wary. The hackles on his neck still bristled, and his tail was tucked beneath him in sustained fright, but he hoped that his tone conveyed some extent of dominance. Most likely, though, he sounded scared. Perhaps not like a coward, but still obviously afraid. Despite his fear, however, his thoughts ran smoothly, and so he had the common sense to not reveal himself first. After all, who knew whether this stranger had something against Cour des Miracles? Or the Lopez family, even?


Yes! ORION! :D
BTW: You typed that up in a few minutes!?
I envy your speed. *harrumph* (jk)
Anyway, yeah, your post's completely fine. No changes needed whatsoever. :>

Orion North

Oh, who would ever wanna be king?


While Orion was merely embarrassed, the boy before him reacted more vividly. Blue eyes widened more and his ears strained forward as the stranger yelped and backed away, and he felt his legs tense with the urge to step back away well, maybe even flee; the other's ears had flattened themselves and he could see the white of his teeth as his lips curled over them. But the Northern remained rigid and stood his ground, but dared not to appear dominant. He did not know how this individual was going to react, and thought best not to try to provoke him.

They stared at each other and took the time to assess the situation. As the other had read him, Orion had done the same. He reached the same conclusions: he was a member of some pack, young like he, a bit of a hybrid, though he appeared fully wolf, and... He blinked in surprise and wondered if his nose was tricking him and he was actually scenting himself or something. He could have sworn that the coywolf was —

The boy broke his thoughts with a question. The youth saw how his fur was raised and how his tail was tucked, and while he appeared to be trying to take control of the situation, he simply seemed spooked. He did not raise his tail, but Orion kept it relaxed behind him. In any other situation, he would have asserted his dominance, especially over someone who appeared as frightened as the other (fear made situations unpredictable and dangerous), but this canine was different. Unlike the others he had met in Nova Scotia so far, he had automatically considered him an equal.

"I'm Orion North," he stated without hesitation, and instead of politely asking for his name in return, the boy jumped straight to the point and boldly asked, "Are you not a Luperci?"

Hehe, I went super fast to try to squeeze that in, but I'm typically slower. xD

The grey coywolf replied first to the query, revealing himself to be of the name 'Orion North'. But then he asked a question.

'Are you not a Luperci?'


For a moment Maciel froze, not in surprise but in sheer delight that for a second could not be conveyed. The words had struck the very core of his soul and suddenly he came to a bittersweet epiphany: how strange it had been this past couple of months, living in a pack where everyone was Luperci except himself. It had been like walking amongst the divine as an alien, trying hard to fit in despite his obvious feral strangeness and inferiority. He had not realised at all how stressed he was, because although he was sure he was a true Courtier now, he was still not one of their kind.


And so he looked upon this canine - Orion North - and thought him no longer a mere stranger but a long-lost brother, and his joy became evident in the quickening beat of his heart and the lift of his tail.
"No!" he answered, his happiness clear, "I am not a Luperci," there was a pause, and then he continued gleefully, "And neither are you."


He took a few cautious steps forward, back to where he had stood before. Dark sepia eyes briefly met cold, icy blue before looking away politely, pleased with what they had seen. If he had been Luperci, he may have been smiling.


But he was not Luperci. That was the entire point.

Orion North

Oh, who would ever wanna be king?


As soon as Orion asked the question, the other's entire demeanor changed. He became less fearful and he seemed frozen with happiness, as if he could barely contain himself. Judging by that reaction alone, the Northern knew his answer, and he felt his own heart thump in his chest and his tail wave behind him as relief and excitement surged through him like lightning. How long had it been since he had seen one of his kind? The other non-shifter must have known how hard it was to walk among the land of strangers on four legs, or else his reaction would not have been so passionate as Orion's.

The other's words confirmed his thoughts, and that only made the half-blood happier. The male continued to state that he was also not a Luperci, and he could only nod vigorously to confirmed his assumption; he was momentarily lost for words, unable to speak formally because of his elation. The once frightened canine approached to his original spot once more, and he looked back at him fondly as if he was an already familiar face, and only felt slightly embarrassed as the other looked away politely while Orion continued watching. It was as if he was worried he was a figment that would disappear as soon as his eyes would train away from him.

"What's your name?" he finally spoke, trying keeping his words measured, but his excitement still seeped into his speech despite trying to force himself to sound formal. He barely had the heart to do it when this was the first non-Luperci he ran into since leaving the North.

Orion asked for his name, and Maciel was all too glad to give it. The thrill of meeting another of his own transformed him into someone more confident and eager. For once, he was willing to socialise.
"Maciel Lopez," he immediately replied, before hurrying on to add (for fear that the rare name would be perceived as strange) a quick explanation, "My family was from far down South."


If he had been talking to a Luperci - such as one of his packmates - he might have forced a lupine replica of a smile to show goodwill, but of course such a gesture was not required. Instead, he referred to more archaic body language: an alert, relaxed posture that conveyed a simple contentment. His eyes wandered (still avoiding the other coywolf's eyes); it was somewhat difficult for him to accept this situation as real and he wanted to take in every detail of Orion, as if noting down evidence for his existence. He unconsciously began to think of the hybrid as both exotic and pulchritudinous, but that was currently of absolutely no interest to him... and a part of himself he was not willing to accept just yet. His gaze soon also found the golden coin that hung around the Northerner's neck, yet that did not pique is curiousity either. His mind was on other things.


"How did you get to 'Souls?" he asked, stunned, watching Orion with a look of both joy and inquisitiveness.

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out

Orion blinked as Maciel gave him his name and noted that the other was quick to give an explanation. "South, huh? Your family must have traveled a long way, then." A twinkle of amusement lit his eyes and he added, "At least much longer than I have traveled; if it wasn't obvious, I'm from the north — northwest, to be exact." And from the North, he added in his mind, but decided to let out that detail for simplicity's sake. He didn't want to bog down this miraculous meeting with how many times the term "north" applied to him.


Maciel was simple, but becoming in his own way that perhaps only another non-Luperci could appreciate. They were about the same height, with Orion being only slightly taller, and he was also broader of shoulder than the other, who was leaner than he. However, he still looked physically capable, and he did not doubt his potential. His coat was foreign to him — a product of the south, he assumed, and his own unfamiliarity with the other wolf breeds. Whether or not it was actually common, Orion himself found it quite unique.


'Souls was a name he had never heard of before, but he assumed it was an interchangeable name with Nova Scotia. "I walked," the youth said, deciding to not try to joke around; perhaps they weren't that familiar yet. "I left my home about four months ago, but the journey from there to here is probably only a couple of fortnights on paw." When he spoke of home, he did not feel the usual pang of sadness, but it was probably because he was distracted by his current situation. "What about you? Did you come from the south as well?"

Maciel's attention heightened further still when he heard the mentioning of the term 'north'. It was yet another area of the wide world that remained alien to him, although he did understand (from stories, mainly) that it was a wintery place commonly buried under ice and snow. 'That's probably why his fur is so light in colour,' the coywolf theorised silently. Being a hunter, camouflage was a familiar subject, and one he had much interest in.


He listened eagerly to Orion's reply concerning his travels. Perhaps, several months ago, the sadness that may have rung behind the Northerner's story would have remained unnoticed and strange to him. But now he resided within Cour des Miracles and he understood the feeling of homesickness well: he was experiencing it right now, in fact, although to a much lesser extent. Nevertheless, the dull ache in his heart was momentarily forgotten, swamped as it was in the excitement of things.


An inquiry was returned back to him and it took a moment for Maciel to pull his thoughts back together. When he had returned back to a more normal level of sanity, he answered,
"I came from the South, yes, but not as far South as my father and grandparents. I was born in New Brunswick, which is quite near here. I left my pack when I was about ten months old. I just wandered around for a while, and eventually found my way to 'Souls when I was about a year old."


After this introduction, Maciel did not know what else there was to say. He paused, contemplated the situation and his past, then came to a realisation. It seemed that his entire body suddenly sagged, and he added, his voice quiet with both infinite joy and sorrow: "I haven't seen another non-Luperci for almost eight months."

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out

Orion nodded as Maciel explained his origins; he knew where New Brunswick was and guessed that he even passed through it on his way to this land. He wondered briefly if he had came across the Lopez's pack and did not even realize it, missing an entire pack of non-Luperci when he was in a world plagued with nothing but Luperci. The thought that his "isolation" could have been shorter gripped anxiously at his heart, but he mentally shook it away. He would have noticed if he did cross Maciel's old pack and he decided to not let it worry him. He had Maciel now, after all.

"I left from my home when I was eight months old." Chased out without a choice was a better way to put it, but Orion wasn't one for dramatics. "By the time I got here, I was a year old, too. I didn't come straight here, though — my home isn't that long of a journey away." He estimated it was much shorter than that, but he did not think he would ever find out... He had no good reason to return to the North, unless he had a death wish.

The youth blinked at the other's demeanor shifted before him, and his ears flicked briefly against his head as Maciel stated that it had been more than half a year since he last saw a Luperci. Orion suddenly felt shameful that he had felt so lonely for non-shifter company when he had not had to wait as long as his new friend. But eight months... that did not sound optimistic. "That's an awfully long time... I guess there's fewer of us than we can hope for," Orion stated, his voice becoming more somber, "And more Luperci than we need."

The Northern paused for a moment before looking directly at the other again. "I smell that you're in a pack, the Court, right?" The exact name eluded him, but he remembered the girl he had met that spoke about whales. She was a Luperci, so that meant the entire pack must have been shifters. Save for Maciel.

Maciel listened to Orion's brief telling of his own story, silently comitting it to memory. Then, of course, he expressed his feelings of terrible loneliness in a single, cold fact:
"I haven't seen another non-Luperci for almost eight months".


Those words could have been a pericope in a novel of grief, and the Courtier's heart was gripped by melting ice.


Then Orion offered a statement of his own, regarding Luperci and their unfair abundance. Considering that Maciel himself was part of an almost-all Luperci pack, he probably should have objected and gone into a passionate speech about how the (potentially) two-legged canines actually could be strikingly protaganistic at times. But he did not. He remembered his sister. He remembered all the Luperci whom he had ever met.


It hurt and burned like the fires of hell. So he pushed those memories aside and, as he so often did, pretended that they did not exist at all.


And so Maciel remained silent.


The question of his pack arose later on, and the coywolf was glad for the change of subject, "That is our name, yes. But the full term is 'Cour des Miracles'. It means 'Court of Miracles'. Most of my packmates are Luperci, though. I'm pretty sure I'm the only non-shifter in the pack, to be honest." he laughed nervously, then hastily added, "I have not met all of them yet, but most seem of them seem to be very friendly," There was a pause. "Surprisingly."

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out

Maciel remained silent as Orion made his pointed remark about the Luperci where he would expect agreement, from one non-shifter to another. However, the North did not press the other for a reply. He took the other's silence as an unspoken agreement. Even if their personal experiences with Luperci were probably vastly different, Orion assumed they could both conclude that they, the "natural" and "pure" ones, were separate from them.

He made a small "ah" sound as the Lopez clarified his pack name for him. Cour des Miracles; if he were to take a guess at it, Orion would guess it was French. He was more familiar with that language than any other foreign tongue, but of course he did not know a lick of it and could only recognize it if he heard it. He listened as Maciel spoke, and nodded at his words as they confirmed his assumptions. So he was, most likely, the only non-shifter in that pack.

"Surprisingly," he echoed in agreement. "Just keep your wits about you. You never know... I mean, they're unpredictable." After all, these were the same beings that had tried to overthrow his home kingdom with violence and bloodshed when they had done nothing to hurt them. "I don't think I would be able to live in a pack that were all shifters. I'd be too nervous," he said with a bit of awe in his voice, as if he was commemorating Maciel to be able to do such a thing. "It's like I said, they're unpredictable. But you can't expect anything less from those who have been impaired."

"Unpredictable," Maciel smiled, but not with warmth. Instead, it seemed to be a gesture of some kind of morbid humour. "Yes. That would be an apt term to describe them. They are so strange, too."

'Yet we are, most likely, the ones who are strange,' he thought aside. It was an easy conclusion for him to come to: Luperci had dominated most of his life, either in numbers or, in the case of his sister, in strength. They were things divine. But he could not shift. He had been born without the privilege of shifting and he liked it that way, but there was no doubt in his mind of which type of canine was superior in this world.


He listened to Orion's own thoughts on the matter, and agreed with the Northerner whole heartedly. Luperci were strong, able creatures that held the advantages of three forms, and they were at times quite likely to become dangerous. The Courtier nodded in agreement. That is, except, for when the grey coywolf mentioned 'impairment'.


"Impairment?" Maciel echoed, somewhat confused, "But don't you think that we're... non-Luperci are.. less than them?"


Surely, the Mexican wolf thought, Orion must be confused in some way. He made it seem like it was the nonshifters who were superior and thus the shifters, in turn, inferior. The logic made no sense to him. Perhaps, if Maciel would only indagate the meaning behind Orion's words, it would come to unfold that the Northerner had, indeed, used his words mistakenly (or that Maciel himself had heard wrongly). That seemed like the only explanation to the Courtier.

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out

The other non-shifter nodded his head in agreement until Orion had mentioned "impairment". Then a look of puzzlement crossed his friend's face. Immediately the boy wished for the words to fly back into his mouth. Perhaps Maciel was fond enough of the rejectamenta to find offense in such words? By their conversation it sounded like he disliked Luperci as much as the Northern did. Orion himself was now also confused.

Maciel voiced his confusion, and Orion titled his head sharply to the side at his words. He was quiet for a moment, as if the Lopez's words took him a few moment in order for him to understand them and their meaning. In fact, to Orion, the foreign words sounded like a whole other language.

"Less... than Luperci? Don't you mean the other way around? We're the ones that are unaffected by the shifting virus — how are the healthy lesser than the sick?" Orion asked, question after question, his head stuck in the tilt with his brows furrowed in dismay. He was clearly having as much trouble as Maciel with the subject at hand. Didn't the other coywolf know this already?

A thought came to him, and Orion frowned a little. "I mean, sure, they can grow bigger, but two legs are cumbersome; they run slower, they are less agile, they trip over themselves. It's degenerate. The shifting is nothing but a — a disadvantage."

Maciel listened, horrified, to Orion's explanation. It had quickly become apparent that the northerner's previous words, which the Courtier had originally regarded as some mistake, were spoken truly.


Yet admittedly for a moment he was quite taken with the others statements. What a sweet world it would be if he, though so utterly infinitesimal and helpless, remained still superior... superior than the Luperci who roamed this land, and simply because of the blood that ran through his veins?


The idea of such privilege being applied to him made his heart give a little nervous leap of joy.


But then old memories flashed before his eyes, so vivid in their nature that they almost toppled him with the dark images that they provided. They were all graphic scenes of blood and gore and pain, and they immediately rent his previously happy heart to shreds. Suddenly caught up in this state of agonising rememberance, his dark eyes widened with momentary fear and he instantly froze to the spot, completely stone-still except for the unexpected bristling of his hackles.


Eventually, though, he managed to calm himself enough to speak, suppressing these angry, depressing thoughts.
"Degenerate they may be..." he said, his voice now lowered to a whisper as he struggled to remain genial. Nevertheless, he clearly sounded frantic, almost panicking as he spoke. "They can do strange things, Orion. Alien things. They may take a stick in their hands and beat you, or take out their sharp knives and gut you. Yet w-we ourselves can only bite and scratch, so if a L-L-Luperci is after us, we must run. We are at their mercy. And if they turn to Secui form, they are so much s-stronger..."


He paused, his imagination conjuring up the most nightmarish images. Then he pushed them forcefully away.


"They are not sick, I think," he finally finished, slow and halting in his speech, "But... blessed. Do you see what I mean?" He suddenly lifted his eyes to as if to examine the others face, searching desperately for some sign of mutual agreement.

No worries. :D
BTW: Maciel panics a little here. :P I'm feeling a little melodramatic.

*turtle crawls in* Poor Maciel ;__; And here's Orion with his weird theory.

As Maciel was thinking, Orion watched as the emotions played out on his friend's face. From what was once sheer happiness there was now overwhelming fear. His eyes were wide as if he was seeing something that the North could not see, and he knew that the other may have been remembering a memory. Sudden concern gripped at his heart and he wanted to step forward and help the male, to retrieve him from whatever he was reliving, but his paws did not bring him forward. What could he do? He couldn't chase away thoughts that was in another's mind.


The other's hackles rose, and it was not after a few moments that it seemed he found his voice. Friendly as he tried to remain, he tone sounded as disturbed as his appearance. Maciel spoke of the violence that a Luperci was able to do, and how they, the non-Luperci, were subjected to it. Briefly Orion's mind flitted to the last scene he had saw of his home — total chaos as enslaved Luperci raised arms against their non-shifting nobles. Familiar anxiety of being unsure whether stability in the North was reinstated or not filled him, but stubbornness he pushed it out of mind. Of course the non-shifters were alright. They were better, not them.


Blessed. That was how Maciel described them. Desperate eyes bore into him, as if he needed to reaffirm this idea with an agreement. But no words of such nature crossed his mind. Blessed... Orion echoed, looking back at Maciel with an unreadable expression. I see what you mean. They are stronger than us, yes. But blessed? You and me, we are natural, untouched. Wolves, coyotes, whatever, you and I are what canines have been for who knows how long. We have always walked on four legs. It's how it's suppose to be. Hell, even the young of those shifters are born on four paws.


But ever since the humans died out, Orion continued, not thinking that Maciel could possibly know nothing about that species, that's when the shifting business began. I think -- I think whatever made humans disappear is what those Luperci have. Humans used to be superior than everyone, but look at them now. They're gone. And now canines are starting to get affected with whatever they had. They're tainted. They're going to have their own downfall, just like the humans. We just have to bid our time, just like our ancestors.

Orion seemed to be calm as he replied, instantly soothing Maciel's rising panic with his wise-sounding words. The logic suddenly seemed clear to the Courtier - still not convincing, but at least now understandable - and he felt lured towards the Northerner's foreign beliefs once more. Maciel had personally never seen a Luperci pup in his life but if Orion was right, if they were truly born in lupus form, surely that must be a sign? A sign of what things should be?


Again he remembered his sister, terrifying as she loomed over him, tall and straight-backed and her long-fingered, humanoid hands clutching a wooden stick.
"You're pathetic," she was saying, "Look at me."

"LOOK AT ME."


'Yes,' Maciel thought quietly, 'Yes, look at her. This is not the way things should be.'


The princely Northerner was now continuing on with his speech, this time explaining his theory regarding humans and Luperci. Maciel was familiar with the extinct species. They had hunted down his Mexican Wolf ancestors. Like Luperci, they had been viperous, mean-tempered creatures. And, yes, the humans had had their catastrophe and the first shifters had been born like rats from their ashes, but if Luperci-kind were truly related in some way to the homo sapien race it did not fill Maciel's heart with hope... it filled it with dread. It trapped his depressed heart in a haunted hypogeum and left it there to wither and dry. If the Northerner was indeed correct in his hypothesis, then the young Courtier could not simply bide his time: he would die as a trophy in the hands of a Luperci. But wasn't it how it had always been?


Maciel felt heartbreakingly cold inside.


Eventually he answered, this time with his voice carefully measured and placid. In these moments his emotions were so jumbled that they eventually reached a chaotic, yet blissful neutral, so that the coywolf appeared at once serene and level-headed, "I think they are tainted, too, and maybe sick as well. But I don't know about downfall..." he trailed off thoughtfully here, but then went on quickly, "Anyway, they are the strangest creatures, as dangerous as a bear in lupine form. Maybe we should do what you said... stay away and bide our time. But I don't know how that will turn out." He finished with a small, non-commital shrug of his shoulders and then lowered his eyes. It was evident that he was still undecided on the whole matter, troubled by it though he was. The true nature of Luperci was probably too complex for his wild mind to understand. Perhaps it would be a better idea to simply tolerate the monsters and let them all be... yet...


By now Maciel was absolutely nauseated with these unanswered questions of his. He pushed them all away, locking them at the back of his mind so that they would not bother him further.

Whether his words uplifted Maciel or not, Orion watched as the panic faded from his eyes and became quiet. Despite the calm that settled over the other, uneasiness gripped at the North's chest as he looked at the fellow non-shifter-- he could sense that the Lopez was still disturbed by whatever he had reviewed in his mind.


I do not know how it will turn out either, he said honestly. Orion did not know all the answers, and he was not going to parade like he knew everything. He spoke what he had known to be truth. He shared the other's anxiety of their delicate future as non-Luperci, but the Northern found hope in the future. Only time will tell. He looked at Maciel as the coywolf's eyes had lowered. Orion sensed his reservation; the topic was getting too out of paw, and the other had begun to shut himself in. Fearful of losing the favor of the one non-shifter he had encountered so far because of a slip of the tongue, the North attempted to change the subject.


What are you doing away from Cour des Miracles? Orion wanted to flinch at the forced casualness of which he spoke, but he kept his face straight. He wanted to broach away from the talk of Luperci, mostly for Maciel's sake. I mean, I don't think the borders are near here. Were you on your way to something before I came onto your path?

When Orion began to speak of packs and plans instead of Luperci, Maciel leapt upon the new change in subject, his previously lowered tail now lifting slightly. He could sense the apocryphalness in the Northerner's cordial informality, but it did not bother him in the slightest: he valued others far too much to judge them, or at least as long as they were not like those antagonistic Luperci. Internally he cringed at the thought of those certain individuals. He could not even bring himself to remember their names.


"Yes, the pack borders aren't that near. I was actually on my way north... I'm planning on travelling around there for a few days," he revealed to Orion, his tone now becoming a little lighter and more cheery, "Hunting, I'm afraid, is my only skill and I have far from mastered it. I thought that experiencing new places would help me become more rounded, with their different environments and animals and all. Perhaps when I get back home again, I might also bring some new information about the other neutral territories." The word 'home' rolled casually off his tongue, saying more than the statements which he so nonchanantly spoke. Cour des Miracles had become more than just a new pack for him... it was his life reborn, his only source of stability, and he clung to it like a half-drowned man.

If only his packmates were not so uncurably ill with the terrible Virus. And yet, despite this shared fault of theirs, he was unwaveringly loyal to them all. Was that not why they called themselves the Court of Miracles?
