[P] The truth is I'm no good for you
P. Sybil | Government Estate

OOC: Let me know if I should change anything! <3


Before his mother had fallen from grace and sunken so low in the pack that Lucian could only assume leaving was the last solution she had available to her that could save her from further ridicule, Akantha was a well-known and well-respected presence in Sapient. When he thought of her, he preferred the memories that he had from before her embarrassing decline: all made up, full of confidence, and ever present.


Now that she was gone — off to the new trading depot along with his sister, Odalis — Lucian felt mixed emotions. On the one hand, there was a thrill. With neither a mother nor a father to be disappointed in him, the young Amaranthe felt good and truly free. But there was also nostalgia; a shimmer of sadness and unease that threatened to dampen his good mood whenever he was reminded of his mother's absence.


It was perhaps this longing for the memories of Akantha as she was that drove Lucian to check in on those pack mates of his that he hadn't seen around enough in recent times or who he knew to be injured or otherwise unwell. The young man had checked up on Leonard some time before, but he knew the man had been wounded in the brawls. Stepping lightly down the hallway, Lucian avoided looking at the door to the room his mother had once claimed. Sybil, on the other hand, he had heard very little about. Was she sick? Had she, too, been injured? There was only one way to find out.


Knocking respectfully on her door, Lucian wove his fingers through his pompadour and let his hand fall to his side. "Are you in, Sybil? It's Lucian."

This is referencing to an earlier thread. Dare would have brought Lucian some sweet flavored drinks for him to try.



Sybil had spent a fair amount of time locked away in her room, taking care of her child. She didn't have anything to complain about though. She had something she always wanted, and now was the chance to show those in the pack that she could take care of the pups she produced from sleeping around. Rusty was her treasure, her prized first child. The two of them spent their days, playing with each other in her room. He was still too young to be venturing too far away from her, but there were times when she would have to go out. Sybil was thankful that he didn't make too much noise while she was away.

The coyote woman had been out for most of the morning, sitting at the graves of her two stillborn pups. She lowered her head, shedding a couple tears before she smiled to them. Raising to her feet, she then moved off into the woods, taking the time to hunt for her son. She wasn't the best, but with the help of Naseer, she was able to provide for him.

As the mother made her way back to her room, she could hear her son making noises from the stairs. Picking up her pace, she stopped to see a darker male outside of her door. She knew the male, Lucian. It was Dareios' friend, the one she had his roommate bring her drinks to once before. There wasn't much interaction between the two of them prior to that point. Perhaps this would be a good chance to do just that as well as get some news about the drinks he had hopefully tried.

Stepping from the stairs, she spoke up to the male as she came closer to the door, Hello Lucian. Sorry, I was out this morning. What can I do for you? Come to tell me what you thought of the drinks I had your roommate bring you? Turning her attention to the newly excited pup in her room, she opened the door, smiling to the brown boy, Mommy's home Rusty. I've got your meal for today.

OOC: Oo, thank you for that bit of info! I can definitely have Lu provide a critique a bit later, after his shock wears off, hahahaha. xD


His knock and call seemed to have disturbed something behind the door. Curious, Lucian furrowed his brows and tilted his head, listening. Was that... Sybil? She sounded like an infant. Cupping his chin between his thumb and index finger, the Amaranthe wondered if she had truly fallen so ill that she was reduced to whimpers and whines. Did he want to be exposed to whatever she had? Maybe he should turn back and check in on her later.


Just as he was gearing up to inform Sybil that he would come back later, her voice — her clear, healthy, definitely not impaired voice — erupted from down the hallway toward the staircase. Lucian swung his head around, the look on his face a mixture of surprise, relief, and confusion. "Oh, hey Syb. I, uh..." he turned back to the door and the noises contained within the room. What the hell did she have in there? What devious, taboo things was she into?


When he looked at her again, his usual grin was on his face. She looked well to him — still smokin' as ever. "Actually, I was just checking in on you; I haven't seen you around lately." Lucian stepped aside to allow Sybil access to her room, deeply curious as to what was inside. There was a scent about her, however, that was distantly familiar and oddly comforting. But even after the new mother announced her return to the puppy within, it took the young Amaranthe another several moments to realize precisely what the words meant.


His jaw dropped. "Wait... what?" he barked, dumbfounded. "Shit, Sybil, you're a mother? When did that happen?" All thoughts about the alcohol and his assessment as to its taste and quality were long gone. This was insane, mostly because Lucian had had no idea. Craning his neck around the door frame, the Amaranthe peered inside at the plump brown pup and tried to hide his reservations. "How old is it?"

Sybil was not the least bit surprised to see the look Lucian had given her when appeared before him. Even more so when he turned his head back towards the door. Yes, there were not many in Sapient who even knew about her pregnancy. Really it had only become apparent during the most recent conflict, the one that had caused her to lose two of her pups from the litter. No doubt the male had heard her son through the door, just as she had done on her way back home, and he had grown confused when he realized that she was not the one making the noise on the inside.

Both of them had gone quiet, the coyote staring at him for a moment before Lucian returned his attention to her. He explained he had come to check on her since he hadn't seen her in a while. There were many she had failed to keep up with due to recent things, but then again the male wasn't around all that much either. It was mainly the reason she had asked Dareios to take the drinks to his roommate instead of her being the one to do so. At least she knew the two of them would be in the same room at some point in time.

When it came time to reveal her secret, the male had gone silent once again. The shock had taken him over. That was fine. It gave the mother time to reunite with her child. Taking a seat down in front of him, she began to pick away at the prey she had brought back with her, turning her head over her shoulder to look back at the brown male, It happened a couple months back, shortly before we were attacked. He's just a little over two weeks now. Giving Rusty a pat on the head, she began to take pieces of the meat, chewing at them before she spat them back on the floor, Go ahead Rusty. The brown pup lowered his head, poking at the meat with his nose before his mouth opened, taking small bites of his meal.

Lucian didn't necessarily hate children, he just perceived them as being weird and annoying and terribly needy. They were loud and they were dirty and they lacked boundaries. Though, as he looked in on Rusty, Lucian couldn't help feeling a certain tenderness towards the young infant. And then he reminded himself that the kid would grow up to be a toddler and then a rowdy, noisy, messy kid. Until puppies could shift, Lucian just tended to regard them as other creatures.


He watched the rotund infant as Sybil spoke. "Its so small," he commented, not bothering to even use a proper pronoun for the child, who still seemed less than a Luperci. "So wait, who's the father?" Lucian looked away from the feeding infant and back at the lovely new mother who had, at least for him, lost some of her attractiveness. Some, but not all. There were still plenty of things about her that drew his interest in her.


Lowering toxic green eyes back down at the babe, Lucian watched as Rusty poked at the regurgitated meat before taking some of it into his mouth and ingesting it. Puppies were so freaking weird. He glanced back at Sybil again and offered her a wry smile. "Well, you're still looking fine, Syb," he said, then remembered the drinks that Dareios had brought back to their room one day. If he remembered right, it was Sybil who had given them to him for him to share with Lucian. "Oh hey!" he began, grinning more broadly. "Thanks for those drinks, by the way. They were damn good. You made them yourself?"

Lucian's observation was not wrong. He was still small compared to other pups.. and that was likely due to the hit they all had endured during the conflict. She paused, waiting for her son to begin his feast before she moved back on her feet. Her head leaned over to the male, a saddening look overtaking her as her hands moved along her upper arms, her voice just a whisper, There were two others.. dead at birth.. One of our attackers hit me straight in the stomach.. I am just grateful that at least one of my children managed to survive.. He probably couldn't hold the appreciation that she did for having been given this chance, and she was not trying to get sympathy out of him, but he should know about Rusty's outcome.

Taking a step back from the male, her eyes turned back down to the brown pup, her smile returning to her face as she addressed him once again, You might have seen him wandering around the packlands. His name is Harlequin. He's been allowed to stay in Sapient for a while and wanted to stay to help raise his son. I don't know if he has decided to join or not, but I think he will. Just stating that made her smile grow wider. Why would she ever want him to leave? They had a family now, and there would be another time for the two of them to try again, again for more of their family.

Tail wagged behind Sybil to Lucian's comment. She couldn't help but turn to a better angle for him, You're too kind Lucian, but that you for the compliment. Emitting a small chuckle, she relaxed herself once again, having the subject change from her son to the drinks his roommate had brought up to him. They were the sweeter drinks she had decided to make, and was pleased to get such a positive response from the one they had been sent to, I am glad to hear that. I did indeed make them and was planning on making another batch soon. Do you want me to make you some more to share with Dareios?
