Why is this so hard?

Malfoy looked at the figure in the distance, close enough to see, not close enough to hear or be heard by. Saga, his sister and he wasn't sure where her two pups were at the moment. Well, they weren't really pups at this point, but they were still younger wolves. Frowning to himself, he only felt tight nerves as he tried to think of what he could say to her that would let him meet her children. As siblings, they didn't interact much and he always felt like he said the wrong things to her to make her mad. He was so lost in his own nervous worry that he jumped a little when a warm hand landed on his shoulder lightly.

Looking to his side, there was James, hovering a bit above him and granting him a warm smile. Feeling his nerves ease, Malfoy returned the smile more easily than he would have thought possible. This giant of a man always eased his worries so easily it was ridiculous. "I will be there" the brown wolf-dog said to help ease him even more. Right, his new boyfriend would be there...not exactly the way he had wanted his sister to know his true nature, but he definitely felt way better with the other male there. Nodding he took strength from the presence of James and went up to his sister "Saga."

Although very much someone who prefered winter, Saga couldn't deny that there was great enjoyment to be had in basking under the blazing sun. While overgrown, her garden was not shaded by the surrounding trees. The only shadows that fell were those cast by the small porch and the little tin shed and horse stall combo in the corner nearest to the road, and they fell far from the spot where she lay, surrounded by wildflowers. The boys had long since left the house, seeking new adventures and causing move havoc. Thankfully, she knew she could trust those in the Vale to keep them in check. Except maybe Ginny. She could trust Ginny only to encourage their antics further. Saga could only sigh in defeat when they were escorted home by the Hawkesond, covered head to toe in mud and beyond hyperactive. She supposed she should be grateful that Ginny was always so eager to entertain them, even if that entertainment cost her a nice, clean house.

The Ursarchon had been quite caught up in her daydreaming when Malfoy called out to her. It didn't take her long to rise from the trampled grass, jumping up in a quick, graceful motion. Green eyes regarded her distant brother, her accented voice repeating his name, 'Malfoy.' in greeting. That same gaze turned to the man who accompanied him, James, another member of the Vale. She gave him the same greeting, 'James.'

Malfoy gave his sister a small smile then looked to the ground feeling the rise of nerves again. A squeeze to his hand had him smiling more and he looked up again "I am...dating James now" he looked towards the tall man "I just thought...you should know?" He knew he was avoiding looking directly at Saga, but he didn't know how she would react yet. James gave a chuckle and had no trouble facing Saga directly. "That wasn't all...he also wanted to ask after your pups, and wanted to know if you needed anything." Malfoy felt his cheeks warm and he finally looked towards his sister again.

"Right...all that" he gave a more confident smile and hoped she would at least give him some news. Of course, getting information from Saga could be like having a thorn stuck in your paw. Hard and sometimes painful. Painful to him, and it always made him doubt she even wanted him around. At least he was stubborn enough to keep trying, continuously offering his olive branch to her. If she kept refusing there wasn't too much he could do about that in the long run.

She was surprised by his admission and the questioning way her dappled eyebrows rose demonstrated so. Frankly, she didn't realise that Malfoy had an interest in, well anyone frankly, least of all another Mistwalker. He seemed to be unable to hold her gaze, but her own eyes remained fixed oh his with mild interest. 'Oh. That's... fine?' Truthfully, she didn't know what else to say. 'Thanks.' seemed to be the only way to gracefully accept the situation. Saga had never given much contemplation of same-gender relationships, and as she silently dwelled on it she realised that she didn't actually have opinions on the subject. It didn't particularly affect her after all.

Her sons were something she could talk about with much more ease, giving her brother and his... partner, a warmer smile. 'The boys are good, they're getting bigger, more independent which is... new.' Maybe talking about the boys wasn't so easy after all. 'I'm fine though.' It was only a half-lie.

Malfoy heaved out a sigh and his posture slumped a little as the tense feeling left in a rush. Neither of his siblings cared if he was with a male. He had worried for nothing. Saga also gave him assurance that the boys were fine and that she was fine. He narrowed his eyes slightly and then ran a hand through his mane of fur. "Right..." Though he felt there was more to what she may or may not need, at least she wasn't in enough need of something to allow herself to tell him... That migt be a good thing...or maybe bad. The grey male supposed he couldn't press her or do more than just take her word for it.

James gave him a brief hug and he gave a surprised chuckle before smiling warmly at the bigger male. He also felt himself relax a little and guessed he had been getting all tense again without realizing it. James could always tell, and had formed a habit of hugging him like this when he felt Malfoy was getting too worried or stressed. Malfoy found he didn't mind, though being hugged by the giant male had caught him off guard the first time. "Well, I am around if you need me. Oh...James is a decent carver if you need anything made, so um...keep that in mind I guess if you need something like...that?" he shrugged and smiled at his sister gently, much more at ease than when the conversation had started.
