They had expanded once again and Cartier had undertaken the task of moving the border markings in order to reflect this. It was a back breaking job to dig up each post and transport it. Once again he had grabbed Oblak and the cart in order to help with the task. He seemed to be using the cart mare more and more lately. He was always pulling her out for one task or another. He had taken her out to feed the newly captured foals, he had taken her on a trip to the trading post with Vicira, and now she was helping him to expand the borders.

Once the male had the cart filled with a section of the stakes he got up into the driver's seat and guided the mare to draw the cart to the areas that had been recently marked with just sent alone. Their staked skulls had become a trademark to them and what they were known and recognized by. It was why he put the task of transferring the decorations that the clan was best known for before anything else. He had even set aside his training in order to try to complete this task in a timely manner.

By the time the boy had got to the transfer spot and hopped out of the cart to start unloading the stacks he ended up being bent double out of exhaustion. He had been at the task since early morning and now the sun was high in the sky. He panted, stomach grumbling, but forced himself to straighten up and get back to work. Anyone that had known his mother would comment on how what he was doing was reminiscent of Willam. Just like his mother he was refusing to stop in the middle of the task. He refused to take a break until he got everything complete no matter how much his limbs shook as exhaustion set in.

Hope you don't mind a Messy!


Messiah no longer hurt too much to run around outside, and so he was quick to ditch the hospital house and explore the new territory. Much of it was nondescript yet -- but he also didn't look too hard and missed a lot of detail. He was more interested in marking the borders, a proud coyote of a proud clan. He was happy that Inferni was so large, blossoming since he and his brothers joined. More land for coyotes was ideal, to him. Sometimes he dreamed Inferni might expand to the entire world.


On four willowy legs, he loped through the prairie grass with tongue lolling and eyes bright. He wondered about finding Sparrow so she could go on a run with him; he really liked the quiet, mottled coywolf and wanted to spend more time with her. But when he sought her out, she was more often than not scarce -- and guilty upon seeing him. Which she should be, he guessed -- and hinted to her. He only had one friend in the clan that was not a brother and that was Sparrow -- he needed her to be happy!


Well -- needed her or needed something else to focus his nervous energies on. He pranced along the border and stopped to add his scent to the dozens of markers, tail wagging and wagging harder as he spotted a horse-drawn cart and a buff coyote. Hi! he yipped, and galloped to the cart, rearing on hind paws to peer inside. You're moving the stakes? he asked, nearly gasping, and grinned. Let me help you! I'll dig for you.

--*moseys on in*

See galleries for credit.

The Aquila was riding her mare around the edge of the border. The new border, that is. The coyotes had expanded their territory, claiming slivers of the bay, the forest, the mountain -- and all of the Waste. It had been theirs for years -- at least in part. Now, all of it was theirs, and it was -- Myrika thought -- as it should have been. Most of the territory they claimed had been theirs before: once before, Inferni had stretched to the mountain. They'd climbed backward, however. The coyotes had claimed the southernmost arm of the Waste before, too -- but it had burned, and they'd abandoned it four summers ago. Myrika had seen both the southern burning as well as the northern one -- there was no question which was worse. Already, life began to sprout in the southland. It had not been so large a fire, and -- surrounded on three sides as it was by forest and field -- it was far quicker to grow than the vast charred swathes to the north.

It took longer to loop the borders now -- but it wasn't so bad. It took a similar amount of time to round the whole perimeter, plus the extra few minutes of the southern arm of the Waste. She could, however, follow the coast and cut through the caverns and the mansion. It was the same -- just a little different, but mostly the same. One arm of their territory in particular, however, was very different -- and thus far, barren. The skulls and spikes were still further afield, some distance inland. It was not long in traveling this bared path, however, that Myrika found it was not so barren after all. There was a horse cart, and behind it extended a line of skulls on pikes, the dirt fresh and brown at their bases.

She found Cartier and another coyote at the back of the wagon -- and the former looked unwell. She gave a terse smile to Messiah but turned her attention to Cartier immediately. She dismounted from Eira in a fluid leap and rushed to Cartier's side. Are you alright? What's going on?

Nope, don't mind at all; 362 Words


Cartier looked up from his back breaking work when he was approached. "Yeah, I am." The young male grinned and nodded his head. "That would be great." And truly it would be. It'd end up being one less thing for him to do. It wasn't that he was trying to get out of working but it didn't feel as if it wasn't aching and would never stop aching. He was quite simply sore all over but he still had a great deal of work to do. He didn't have the time or the privilege to be able to slack off. If he didn't get this done then who else would do it? No one else had taken up the task so far so it all seemed dependent upon him for it to get done in a timely manner. So yes, he was quite glad to have the offer of help.

"I'm trying to hurry up and get all this done since it is these skulls that we are known for. Don't want anyone to have any excuse to say that they didn't know and come wandering right on in." He explained why he felt the need to put this singular task above all other tasks. He wouldn't given anyone the chance to trespass and say they didn't know because they hadn't found the famed borders surrounding the lands that belonged to Inferni.

The youth pulled down another stake front the cart and rested it against the back of the cart as he leaned heavily against it and panted. He heard the familiar hoofbeats, at least they had become all too familiar to him, but hadn't the time to straighten himself back up. He offered a grin up at the leader whom had approached him, trying to placate her. "Just moving the borders to ward off trespassers. Just got a bit winded was all. I'm fine though." Cartier forced himself to stand straight and tall but there was still a tremor to his limbs that he couldn't quite quell. "Can't have them saying they didn't know because they didn't see the skulls, right?"
