for dara! :)


The call was familiar, but not at first to the creamy leader - it was like a scent that she could not place, or a color that she could not remember having seen before, and yet its familiarity rang to her. As she trotted in her Optime form to where the sound had come from, she raked her mind for more information - and then she remembered. Dara, a past member of Cercatori d'Arte, had that voice, had that call; and now she seemed to have returned.

She was proved correct when she broke through the thick trees to see the girl on the borders once again, her scent as familiar as the day Skye last saw her. It was a sudden thing, like some of the others that had left; there one day, gone the next, with no note nor explanation saying why. It was not new to Skye, not anymore; Dara had just been another one who had left so suddenly with no trace nor reason.

"Dara," she said, her face a blank slate - not overly welcoming, but not foreboding, either. "You have returned." She waited there on the borders for the former member to speak - perhaps explaining why she had left so suddenly, and why she returned to her former home.

Dara had been aright. As she excepted her former pack leader showed up in front of her. Of course she showed the same respect as she always had. She lowered her ears in shame at this point. Her ears laid low against her head. After a moments hesitation, she spoke quietly, an unusal tone for Dara.

"Yes, Skye, I have returned. As for the reason I suddenly disappeared... I got word that my brother was very close to finding me, him and Salazar, my old mentor. If they were to find me I would have been taken back with them against my will. We would have gone to Germany. I left to stay away from him. Unfortunately he was too close for comfort. I came back because I need this pack. I need something to keep me stable. This pack keeps me stable."

She kept her voice level and stole glances at Skye as she told her tale. She didn't know if Skye would understand. Her brother was very cruel to her, evil to Salazar. But he was only like that because he is bipolar. Either way Dara couldn't be with him. She would become more mentally unstable. She desperately hoped Skye would let her back in the pack.

for dara! :)


Her brows furrowed together as the girl said that she was afraid of her brother returning, to take her away from her home. That Dara even worried that she was in danger worried Skye; although tragedies had happened in the past before, she was always safer in a pack, with family, than alone in the wilderness with no one by her side, and Skye wanted her to understand that.

"Dara," she said softly, "even if your brother had returned to take you away - we are your pack. We are your family; together, we are stronger than any individual, and we would have protected you from him." In some way, Dara's lack of faith in the pack saddened Skye, but she pushed it out of her mind - when one was scared, they did things they wouldn't have otherwise, and no doubt Dara had been frightened of her brother.

"And," she said, "we will protect you now." She stepped back into the territory, allowing Dara to cross the border into Cercatori d'Arte once again.

Dara could hear the slight hurt in Skye's voice as she talked to her. She felt awful that she hurt Skye in so form but Dara only wanted to protect her pack. She was about to agree and then only say it was for protection until Skye continued to talk allowing Dara back into the pack. Dara felt her pride surge, renewing her love for this pack. She raised her head, and she smiled for the first time in a very long time. She stepped into the pack territory with her gray horse following closely.

Dara couldn't let her next words go unspoken. "Skye, it was for the protection of the pack. I didn't want anyone to get hurt." Dara watched Skye as they stood together, just inside the pack border. "Thank you Skye. It means the world to me." Dara bowed gently to her leader, a custom Salazar had taught her. She wanted to show Skye her appreciation in another way.

"Is there any thing I can do to make up for my disappearance?" Her offer was true and honest. She hoped Skye would see her offer as such and know Dara was staying this time.
