OOC:

The sun had just begun to rise over the horizon and a birds greeting the morning eagerly as the scent of rain and mud washed drifted on the wind. All ready Lucia and Tharin stood outside of Kiara's birthing den, their fur whipping in the brisk breeze as they waited for Kiara to emerge. All three pups suckled for the last time on their mother's tete, unaware of the change that would come. Once their bellies were full of regurgitated meat and fatty milk, Kiara nudged the three tiny wolves to the entrance of the den. Coercing them to move wasn't hard, especially when it came to Leela. The tiny female ran outside, yipping and babbling happily as she darted through the bushes, only to be stopped by Tharin before she could get herself into any trouble.


"Tharin, take Altair. Lucia, you take your sister and I'll carry Marrok." Nodding, Lucia trotted over to the squirming white puppy, easily clasping the child in her jaws. Twisting her head, Kiara took Marrok's silver-gray body into her jaws while Tharin caught the biggest pup as he too tried to scramble away. With their eyes to the skies and ears alert for danger, the small family began the trek to the communal den. Now that the pups were weaned of milk, Kiara felt it was time to move them. She had waited two months last time and that had practically led to disaster. Although the snowy mother was nervous, all of her puppies were strong and rambunctious.


The move went relatively quickly, although Lucia had trouble with Leela who squirmed and whined nonstop. When the small family finally arrived at the main den, Kiara paused several meters away to give the pups some distance from the den. Lifting her head to the sky, she howled and called to the entire pack to come see the pups. Tharin and Lucia joined in with their own strong voices and the yipping howls of the tiny pups came in quick bursts to add to the chorus. When her song was done, Kiara turned to Tharin and brushed up against him, her body tense and nervous. He gave her a quick lick on the ear, comforting the uneasy mother as they waited for the pack to arrive.

Living all alone out at the tree hut was hard to get used to after having been cramped in the big den with the entire pack for so long. Saki was beginning to like the solitude more, but she still had nights where the loneliness was almost too much to bear. Going back every day wasn't an option though, not with the distance and the trouble she had with traveling. Her bum leg made getting around a lot more difficult, and she was starting to feel it more in her everyday work.

Said leg was throbbing uncomfortably as Saki lay in the middle of her slowly growing garden. As the temperature began to get warmer, the small spot got more colorful, flowers and plants taking on their full potential. The young wolf tilted her head back and took a deep breath, relishing in the scents that spun around in the light breeze. The breeze that brought the sound of Kiara's beautiful voice.

Immediately jumping up, she stood at attention facing the song, ears and tail standing tall as she listened for a few more moments. It was an invitation. The first Saki'd heard since Kiara had gone missing to tend to her pups. Yapping with bubbling excitement, the girl darted into the woods, not allowing the bad leg to bother her.

Running on three legs usually took her a while, but love and adrenaline propelled her forward at a speed that she'd probably never reached before. Upon drawing near to the den, she slid to a stop and flopped on the ground, panting heavily. Whining, Saki pulled her body forward with her front paws, keeping herself on the ground to show that she was in no way a threat to anyone. "M-Mama...?"

Kerrian Demos

It was the first time e had encountered the season called Spring and already it was his favorite. It was warmer than the cold bite of winter, and the colors. The colors were the best part, soft greens littered the earth beneath his oversized paws. Though he would gladly admit the favorite colors he saw were those of the budding and blooming flowers, from royal purple to the sun colored orange. They were just beautiful, and the smells he encountered were just something to fuel his curiosity. Yes, so far spring was his favorite season.


The child found his paws moving toward his family den, the place his blood related and pack family slept every night. Maybe his mother was there, he always loved spending time with her. The thought seemed to spring a spring in his step, unlike his brother he enjoyed the company of his mother than to his father but that was mostly because of jealousy issues that were deep rooted in his mind. Just the thought of his brother being his father’s favorite seemed to make his hair stand on end, though he quickly soothed this motion when a call rang out near his location.


His oversized ears lifted like radars on his skull as he tilted his head with curiosity, listening to the entire song. Once the singing broke off his tail started to wag behind him, their omega had returned. He had only met Kiara and her mate a few times but he was glad to have her back from her private den. He mother had told him why she was gone; she was having children just like his mother had him and his brother. His pace quickened when he thought of it, more puppies. Maybe he could make friends with them, or maybe he could help protect them. Either way he was excited to meet the new children that were a part of his father’s pack.


It did not take long for him to reach the white female and her darker colored mate, the obnoxious sounds of the puppies entering his ears almost instantly. Was he just as noisy when he was that small? Questions filled his mind as he almost mimicked the golden yearling that had reached the omega first, flattening his ears to his skull and lowering himself lower to the ground though not as low as the training healer. He could not help but let his tail still wiggle behind him from his excitement as he looked at the bundles of energy, though it was the only thing to show that he was happy. His expression remained neutral as he showed her he was no harm to her children, looking to the golden wolf next to him back to the family. A pang of jealous formed in his belly as he saw her yearling daughter, Lucia, and her mate. This family will stay together unlike his own, he was jealous of them. Envious. Kiara, welcome back. He spoke softly, a puppyish tone sticking to his rough voice hoping she would introduce her new brood.

OOC: Gonna post for sake of continuation. Lucia can post after if she'd like.

As her song died, Kiara turned her sapphire eyes back to the pups who were wiggling with excitement. Already Leela was jumping around and testing her surroundings, with Marrok and Altair close behind her. Smiling, the snowy mother turned to look back at her eldest, wondering what Lucia thought of the new puppies. It was Lucia's first time seeing her younger siblings. How excited she must be to see the puppies. With their introduction to the pack, Kiara was going to expect more from her daughter, but she never doubted Lucia's ability to handle the situation. After all, she was Kiara's daughter and an uninfected wolf.


Out of the corner of her eye, the alabaster wolf caught a glimpse of tawny fur. Twisting, Kiara rose to her feet as her tail began to wag uncontrollably. Joy spread into every molecule of her body as she saw Tsytaki racing towards them. Jumping forward, Kiara surged towards her daughter and immediately began to shower the pup with licks and over excited nuzzles. Being separating from her older daughters had been the hardest part about her self isolation and finally being able to see Saki and Lucia was like a dream come true. "Saki, I've missed you so much. Come and-"


Kiara's words were interrupted by the arrival of yet another puppy. Surprised to see Kerrian, Kiara reluctantly parted from Saki to go greet the young male who was mimicking Tsytaki's stance. Kiara gave the younger pup a quick lick on the forehead as he spoke in hushed tones. "Thank you Kerrian." Leela, Altair, and Marrok had ceased their wanderings and were taking refuge underneath Tharin as they peered out at the strangers. For once, it was Altair who emerged first to approach the strangers. His bravery enticed the other two to quickly run out from beneath their father, only to take refuge behind their mother as they peered out curiously from behind her rump. Perhaps the sheer number of strangers was getting to them. Already that was three new wolves after knowing only themselves and their parents. Chuckling, Kiara shook her head and stepped away so that they could meet their elder sister and pack brother. "I'd like you both to meet Altair, Leela, and Marrok." As Kiara said each name, she gently pushed the appropriate pup with the nose. Altair babbled a bit in protest as Leela swatted at her mother's nose.

Fayne

Word Count ? 000 :: Hope you don't mind me popping in. :3


The silver hued Delta was still a wreck. Though, today she put aside her own struggles and vexations for the day. Yuna still needed her to be close. She was a shy girl, only made worse by her father's disappearance. The ash toned pup was lost without her mother around and knowing this broke Fayne's heart. It was her fault. She'd been focusing on herself too much lately to realize it.


Mother and child sat under the shade of a tree, Fayne's arms wrapped around her timid child. She hummed a sweet melody into the child's ear, Yuna finding it hard to stay awake between the comfort of the singing and her mother's arms. Kiara's call caught her attention and halted her song. A yawn arose from her daughter as she shifted slightly at the words of a friend. She was showing her puppies off today. An excitement welled up in the silver female, her tail flopping about as she nudged the waking Yuna. Let's go visit. It'd be good for you to get to know the other puppies in the pack. Make friends. A sigh came from Yuna's mouth as she stood and shook herself off. I don't like talkin' to the other puppies. Fayne stood and stretched.


Well, today you're going to. Let's go. She gave the girl a nudge with her luperci foot and began her shift back to lupus form. She didn't want to approach Kiara and her pups on two legs thinking it might be intimidating and disrespectful. When she was a new mother, she knew two legs were threatening to her. After a few minutes, once she was on all fours, she nipped playfully at Yuna's scruff and began to trot towards the den. Yuna responding likewise and chased after her mother.


When they got there, Fayne slowed them both to a walk, careful not to approach too quickly. Puppies were swarming the den site, now with addition of Yuna who stayed close by her mom. She was nearly grown but still, she held fast to what she knew. Kiara. Tharin. She greeted, inclining her head towards the white mother. Her face warmed up as she saw the pup standing close by her. They're beautiful, definitely have their parents in them. She said, smiling warmly at Tharin, then Kiara. They were a handsome couple.


It did sadden Fayne a bit to see them together, her own mate missing and enslaved, but she kept it well hidden beneath a smile.
