It was strange; not just to be this far north but to have the sensation of sand beneath his paws - THAT was certainly something Kira had not quite expected during his extended wanderings; but then again had his original plans for taking an extended trip out of familliar lands involved him coming this far? Admittedly he had simply allowed his paws to take him as far as were possible before even the slightest hint of weariness began to set in, or in this particular case a sense of curiousity settling over the grey male as he padded along the receding dirt and rock before forcing himself to come to a steady stop. Though the temptation and desire to cover the final distance down to the shoreline was to the point in which there was little doubt that given the chance he would have covered the distance and take note of all that were down there.

The more rational part of him however; that was what kept him from doing such a thing - the possibility of not being able to find a route back up to higher ground was certainly a possibility. One that he really did not wish to take the risk of; maybe another time he would dare move closer - just maybe not today. That was all that tugged green orbs away from the view in which spread out before him, paws progressively turning the grey male from his temporary stop and into a gentle trot further inland.

To step out of the territory was a relief. The change was instantly detected; everything went from smelling like New Dawn and wolf to the natural scent of pine trees and open sky. Even then, Lyris could scarcely smell anything except herself. Everywhere she turned, no matter how quickly she ran; nothing could shake this miserable feeling of Heat. Her scent seemed to seep deep into anything she touched, and the sun seemed to hold a grudge against her and her thick fur; it relentlessly beat upon her back. She couldn’t stay in the rivers forever; being wet became surprisingly uncomfortable after a while, even if it did cool her off. Besides; the sun and her high core temperature burned off the brief sensation of relief quicker than she could blink. So Lyris turned to other alternatives; her mind was immediately set on the cool briny breeze of the ocean; and so she followed the curve of Arisaig Shoal, down towards the shore.

Lyris walked quickly, her mind so absorbed with how the cold ocean breeze would kiss her skin that she was paying little to no attention where she was going. Being upwind, she had the complete advantage of sensing the stranger she would undoubtedly run across. But there was one problem; she could scarcely scent a thing in her current state. So when she rounded a bend in the path and came within inches of bowling over a stranger male, she was too surprised to do much about it. Her skull vibrated with the impact of head against head, and she was pitched backwards onto her rump, where she sat, half dazed. Violently jerking her neck as if to shake away the cobwebs of pain, she sprung to her feet, too frustrated with the world to care much about if she’d hurt him or not. “Why don’t you watch where you’re going? She barked, lips peeling back threateningly; the combination of a scarred, in Heat, and angry she-wolf no doubt coming across as somewhat intimidating.

((300+)) Oh Lyris, can't you be nice?

Maybe it had not been the best of idea's to start moving away from the cool breeze that was coming from the direction in which he were pulling himself away from; though he couldn't say he had the lightest colored fur - but on occasion it were usually enough to avoid overheating too much. But that were obviously was not to be the case today; the further away he moved the greater the temptation to not just turn and head back but to also not simply scratch off his fur to relieve the gradually increasing heat being absorbed. That was all which had tugged Kira's attention back momentarily to gaze at the expanse of water fading from view, a simple sigh escaping him before turning back to focus upon where he were going - which up until that point he had been failing to do. Especially when his head collided with that of another; a pained yelp daring to escape him as he were forced back oto his rear before burying head in front paws, a feeble attempt to ease the pain he felt.

Though it were not hard to soon forget about any pain in which he may have felt, ear's perking up at the sound of the she-wolf's accusation, well; that was how it sounded at least. But then again considering the scent of her heat was as plain as her being before him it was no surprise it sounded as such, after all all females reacted in different ways did they not? But it did not prevent him from becoming equally frustrated, a combination of a frown and a glare forming upon the males genrally gentle features. "It wasn't my fault - I couldn't see you, you could have slowed down a little." he retorted, unwittingly allowing a growl to escape him - certainly odd for him; under other circumstances he would probably avoided females such as this but he just could not keep himself from doing such a thing on this occasion.

The pain of the impact soon transformed into a headache- something she did not need at this very moment- which resulted in kicking up her level of frustration a few more notches. Lyris knew in some ways that she was being unfair; she had been upwind, after all, and it was her job to scent what was in front of her. But such a thing went both ways, and the male certainly had not done his half, either. Besides, she had lots of excuses. Lyris could only smell herself, and she was hotter than hot. Yes, she had a whole sleuth of excuses, and so she decided to use some of them.

The male’s choice of words was a little bit more kind, a little bit more careful, but the growl that quickly followed only succeeded in infuriating her more. Lyris rose her tail, her scent only thickening with the show of dominance. The Epsilon lowered her head and didn’t stop the low growl that rumbled in her chest. “So you think it was my fault? In case you couldn’t tell, I can’t smell a thing. So I would watch where you put the blame.” She dared to take a step forward, now only inches from his muzzle, where she snarled in fury, her scarred features contorting into something frightening.

Wait. Was she really putting the blame solely upon him instead? When he had been in a position to not have been even close to scnting this female until it had been too late? Granted it may have been true that he may have had a chance to scnt her as she got closer - but this time he hadn't. Granted he could give her the excuse of having difficulty in smelling anything aside her own heat, but even this did little to dampen the irritation that Kira felt towards her - in fact it probably just increased significantly. That had been all it had taken to result in Kira tensing up - not by much, but enough that would noticeable to the female he wasn't about to give her an inch.

Instead he simply kept his ground; ignoring the she-wolf's show of dominance which most other times would no doubt have had him backing off - but this time he wasn't about to let himself be pushed off so easily, certainly an odd thing for him. "Ladies first; give blame where it's due." he snapped back, ear's flicking back ever-so-slightly as lips passed back over teeth and returned the snarl aimed at him. Though despite any flicker of restraint he may have had - Kira could not prevent the snapping of his jaws aimed towards the other, momentarily closing the already small distance between them.

Lyris became slowly aware that the stranger was trying to keep his cool, and that she was successfully managing to blow it each time. Perhaps he wasn’t one usually urged into easy anger, but emotions sky rocketed with her Heat, and she could hardly blame him for his frustration. It was almost ridiculous, how snappy and mean she was being for something as simple as a bump-in; on a normal day she would say a single snappy word and move on before it could get worse. But not today. She needed an outlet for her pent-up anger against everything, and it had come in the form of this male.

His next remark was barked with an equal level of distaste, and Lyris snarled in his face again. “I know exactly where it’s due.” And then he made the mistake of lashing out at her with his jaws. It was the last straw; she may have forced herself to push past him before it turned violent, but such a counter could not simply be ignored. Before her now-turned foe could pull his nose back from where he stuck it, Lyris struck out, attempting to close her fangs around his muzzle, searching for flesh to lock around and tear, her front feet coming from the ground to claw savagely at his throat.

His attempts at trying to keeping himself calm despite the current circumstances were certainly starting to slowly fade and be replaced by a growing sense of irritation, especially when it were proving to be useless trying to ease any tension between them both. And his display of frustration towards the female although seemed like the good idea to beging with no longer seemed to be, but then again - what had he really expected of one that were in heat? Not all females were nessercarily more inclined to be sociable, rather at least half were as this and had anger issues.

Though even after his own little snapping incident Kira had been prepared to simply make a detour around her and continue on his way; but it would seem that Karma was about to come round and quite literally bite him. The sensation of of fangs embedding themselves within the flesh upon his muzzle resulted in something resembling a strangeled yelp of pain and muffled snarl escape him, it certainly had surprised him. But the surprise that the grey may have felt soon turn to anger. How dare she! This female had some serious issues and to take it out on him?! Over some minor thing? Such thoughts were quick to flood Kira's mind as he began to make attempts to escape the female's near vice like grip upon his muzzle, the sensation of claws swiping at his throat fueling such attempt and resulting in his own attempts to lash out at the she-wolf.

Everything quickly turned red as things began heating up. Kira’s jab was the catalyst that changed things from a very avid argument to violence. Lyris was swift to lose her usual careful dance-like movements she commonly used during conflict, and instead resorted to blunt force. This was not very effective in her situation, because the huntress was lightweight and slim, mostly devoid of any extra muscle. So when she locked her teeth around Kira’s muzzle, she threw her whole weight forward.

Her foe’s strangled yelp filled Lyris with a brief sense of victory, sending her with even more vigor in an attempt to push him off his feet. They collided heavily, her claws blindly striking out to catch any open flesh she may find around his throat. But it soon became pretty apparent that the Stryder was not cut out for such brute force, and her attempts to bowl Kira over surely only resulted in lots of unsuccessful pushing and sliding. A tactical thought crept into her ferocious thoughts, and she released the male, but not without giving a good swipe at the face. Quickly, the female ducked and feigned a snap at his forepaw, hoping to unbalance him enough so that when she rammed into him from the front, he would fall.

Well, so much for simply vocalizing their general irration and anger at the other and then moving on with nothing more than a sense of annoyance with the other canine. But then again Kira just had himself to blame for such a thing, if he had only made more of an effort in which to restrain himself - regardless of how difficult - then maybe the outcome of this would have been them leaving, not now though. But he had to admit, despite being at a disadvantage he were at least glad to possibly be a little heavier than the female; he could feel her trying to make use of the situation and make attempts to push him to the ground - as if he were going to allow that to happen.

All he had found himself doing was digging his paws into the ground and at least bracing himself a little before even considering swiping out at the she-wolf, hopefully even if he didn't cause some form of injury to her then at least lessen - he hoped - the chances of having his throat clawed out; he'd already her claws come into contact with his flesh and that was how he wanted to keep it. The sense of relief at being released from her jaws was only momentary before being swiped at - not that he truly registerd it; too focused was he in attempting to latch his jaws around the back of the wolfess' neck. Or up until he were rammed into and having the air forced from his body before finding himself fall under the force of the female.

Lyris had notoriety for getting into fights. She was stubborn and easily driven to distrust and anger, and not uncommonly did she find herself itching for a good fight. Today, however, she was quite simply being driven up the wall. Her Heat was heavy and exhausting, and her temper had been worn down to a thin wire. She had a feeling if she hadn’t leaped at Kira, it would have happened to some other poor soul. Lyris was scarcely able to say a kind word in such a state, and it was, quite frankly, a miracle she hadn’t attacked the other earlier. She was just fuming with rage and frustration. The male was a punching bag for her frustrations.

As Lyris dove to slam her shoulder into the male’s chest, she felt teeth graze the back of her neck; not enough to be painful, but enough to spike her efforts anew. She put extra force into her shove, and when she felt her foe’s heavy weight give way, a triumphant snarl burst from her throat. As soon as he was on the ground, the Epsilon took her chance, leaping forward to press her claws into his shoulder and thigh, pulling her weight and leaning close to his throat with teeth bared. In a final savage effort to inflict frustration, she twisted her claws deeper into his flesh; not hard or deep enough to scar, but plenty well to get the blood flowing a bit. “Give me one good reason to let you go.” Her words were low and dripping with poison, eyes dark and threatening as she snarled near his ear.

((200+)) You can have him notice she's from ND in your next post, or he could somehow throw her off/pin her and then I can do it in my next post? Whatever seems betterr
