set after the RO with Saul and Teme!


Teme Lupus is by Alaine!

Despite having asked his fathers advice, Temeraire was even more confused than before. Thoughts were rarely the jurisdiction of the dark male- he was more than happy to male a decision and stick to it. Of course, the decisions he was used to making weren't life changing ones and he was in a whirl. He didn't know how to deal with it, who to talk to or what to do. As he left his fathers house, he was deep in thought and he knew he needed to talk this over with someone other than his father or family. He was sure Bran might give him some good advice, but it wasn't the caramel male he wished to speak to. As soon as he considered it, his paws began to move with more purpose, blue eyes firm.

As he walked through Jordheim, the boy couldn't help but gaze around. Could he really give all this up? He loved his little humped home, his own space, the security it bought him. There was a 'but' though, lingering in his mind. And perhaps the little female would be able to help him. Luckily, she only lived next door to him and he was able to stop at his home to wash the remaining blood from his hands and mouth. While Lena couldn't see the blood, she'd be able to smell it and probably enquire as to where her meal was. Chuckling softly and trying to hide his nerves, he exited his own house.

Crossing the small expanse of open ground between his own house and hers, he wondered what he'd do if she wasn't in. Who else would he talk to? He supposed he could go with his original idea and seek out his Uncle Bran. But it was she who he wished to speak to. Approaching her door, he gave three hard raps on the wood. "Lennie? Are you in?" He called through the door, his voice softer than it usually was.

Lena was not one for napping, let alone sitting still for once, but at that moment, she felt as if she could hibernate for the rest of the winter. She had been poking around Vinátta again, following some paths that she had familiarized herself with as well as carefully checking out some areas that branched off of them. She had found nothing interesting, sadly, but she did spend a good amount of time looking and that ate away at her enegry.

Her interal clock was never wrong, for it never had been before, but it seemed that it needed some tweaking—she trudged to her door, and felt the worn wood still warm from the sun. She had supposed it had been later, with her feeling as tired as she was. But, the sun was acting strange—rising earlier than usual, then setting early as well. These slight changes were throwing her schedule off, but she shrugged and went into the house, heading straight to where she had set up her sleeping area and flopped without grace into the blankets.

She had not begun to actually sleep, perhaps dozing off for better words, when the rapping knock sounded. She did not get up immediately, feeling her bed wrap invisible, comforting fingers that temped her to stay, and turned her head only when a voice sounded. It was soft, and she nearly replied with a mumbling "what?" when she decided to try to process what Temeraire had said. "Yeah, I'm 'ere," she called back as she rolled out of bed, taking her time to get to the door.

"What you got this time, a moose perhaps?" she asked rhetorically as she opened the door, flashing an automatic grin his way. She didn't detect that somber tone in his voice, but did notice the lack of prey scent, and she guessed that he was over to visit or something of the like instead of giving her another meal to chow down on.

Standing outside Lena's door, the boy had never felt so far from himself. He was a practical creature and preferred to do something about his problems, instead of talking and worrying about them. He was rarely nervous or unsure of his path, yet here he stood, twisting fingers around each other and generally feeling awkward. It was a huge decision, a life changing on in fact and the boy was torn. His father had certainly given him a direction, but he was still hesitant to jump head first into it. The area was saturated with his scent and he felt soothed by it, a reminder that she was here and that she would be opening the door any moment. He heard her approaching from inside, her footsteps unhurried. He couldn't help a smile at this- she was never one to be rushed.

His breath caught unexpectedly as she opened the door and he cough to clear it away. Her words were familiar and he grinned softly, his nerves already feeling soothed. Lena was familiar, despite the short time she'd been in Vinátta. They spent a lot of time together and he supposed she thought this was no different. In fact, she proceeded to ask him what he had for her today. His snicker belied his inner turmoil, but he couldn't help it. Everything about the girl lifted his spirits. Nothing for you today, Lennie... He told her, though the uncertainty crept into his voice as he finished speaking. He didn't know whether to go inside her home, or to ask her for a walk. Which would be better? He wanted to snap at himself- he was never like this.

I actually wondered if we could talk? Maybe we could go for a walk? His voice was a question this time, instead of the usual demand. Lena was sure to pick up on his out-of-sorts behaviour and he didn't know if it would help. Blue eyes searched her face before he was unable to stop himself reaching forward and catching ahold of her hand. The physical connection was perhaps for both of them, but he took comfort in it non-the-less.

Nothing seemed out of place as she leaned against the door frame, one arm above her head as she played with a strand of her mane while the other held the door, ready to open it wider for him to come in. But, she paused before she moved the door as the boy answered her question with a lack of a playful retort, and it was lined with a tone that now worried her. She shifted her position a bit, getting off of the door frame and setting down her arm away from her head to her side, and blankly stared at his direction, keeping silent. As nosy as she was by nature, she would allow Temeraire to speak on his own time, whatever it was he wanted to say.

Though she wanted to keep a straight face, seeing that the situation took a seemingly serious turn, she could not help but raise an eyebrow to a degree as he asked—asked, of all things—if she would walk with him. Lena knew that something was definitely off, and was about to call him out on, leaving the idea of letting him take his time with whatever he was to say behind, but before she could open her mouth to speak, she felt him grab her hand. While the motion itself did not shock her, the suddenness, as well the person who was doing it, did. It was just so unlike him, and she was quiet for a moment before answering, her voice a soft tenor instead of the usual jibbing.

"Yeah, of course, Teme," she said quietly, and took a few steps forward to close the door behind her. A thousand thoughts buzzed in her mind: what was wrong, why was he was acting so different—many "what"s and "why"s were flung about in her head, but she did not voice them. "Where do you suppose we're going?" The question was spoken lightly, maybe to help comfort him, and it did not really pressed for an answer. She was really more concerned about what he was on his mind, but the hold of his hand kept her from directly asking.

The casual pose with which Lena leant against the door almost made him wish he'd responded with a cheeky remark, something to make her laugh. He didn't have to bring his problems with him, he didn't have to talk about them with her. But the more his mind considered the thoughts of leaving Vinátta, the more he refused to leave Lena behind, at least subconsciously. When he imagined actually leaving, he visualised the female beside him, taking on the adventure like a trusted side-kick. As his tone of voice and his words registered in the female's mind, she straightened out of her casual pose, concern and confusion clearly emanating from her small body.

His grasping hand was taken and he couldn't help but squeeze it softly. Her voice changed, suiting the rather anxious tenor of his own and she'd become quiet as she agreed to come with him. This was so far from their usual interactions that it could be two different wolves. Still, she stepped out of her home, turning to close her door. Possessively, he kept a tight hold on her hand, not quite realising he was doing it until she stretched far enough to reach her door and his arm went with her. She turned and came to his side and after a moment walking, asked where they might head to. She sounded quiet, a little submissive perhaps and Temeraire adjusted his grip on her hand, sliding his fingers between her own to entwine them properly. "A walk in the forest, perhaps?" Though his intonation left no room for doubt.

He grew silent for a moment, brow furrowed in concentration. With Lena's hand in his own, the physical reminder that she was here with him seemed to settle his mind a little. "I went to my dad today... to ask his advice." He started, his voice still a little unsure. "For weeks now, I've been feeling... restless? Like there's more out there than I'm seeing now. Do you ever get that?" He questioned, turning towards her for a moment, searching her blind eyes.

She wondered for a moment as she closed the door and allowed herself to be led if she had done something wrong. She thought about it for a moment, and then discarded the thought. She had not done anything wrong, she decided, at least nothing that would upset Temeraire—their jokes were never mean, and they never took anything they said that seemed negative seriously. Besides, she thought, someone would not hold someone's hand almost desperately if they were unhappy with them.

She felt his hand move in her own, and she stilled her fingers for moment so they could mold into his as he adjusted their hold into a more proper one. It did not seem he wanted to let go anytime soon, but it did not bother her much, aside the fact that the motion spoke of his uneasiness without him saying a word. She tilted an ear in his direction as he told her of the woods, and gave a nod of her head. "Alright, then." She thought about adding a playful warning about not tripping her over stuff, but held back the comment, supposing it was common sense, and that what he needed to say was more important than a chance to make a joke.

They were both quiet, and while part of her wanted to ask what was wrong, she kept herself silent. But, the silence did not last as long as she thought it would have, and she listened with keen attention. When he mentioned restless, she automatically knew what he was talking about, and let out a quiet sigh of relief—she thought something horrible had happen, the way he was acting! Now she really wanted to chide on him for making her worried, but kept herself from coming off too sharp; he was taking this seriously, and she didn't want to blow him off.

"What did you suppose made me come here, to Vinátta?" she said with a grin, answering with a question. "I love New Dawn and all, but I grew too old of it. I knew everything that had to be known about that place, and I always knew there was more beyond the borders, but it never came across me that I could go see for myself until a couple of weeks ago." Now her wanderlust was sated, at least for now; while there were corners of the pack she had yet to discover, it was becoming repetitive, though she would never tell Teme that, what with this being their pack. And, it was not like she could run off, at least with others knowing she as by herself. If her mother found out, she'd find her and never let her out of the den again, she bet.

It took her a moment to realize where the conversation was heading, and she took a sudden stop while the smile wiped off her face. "Why, are you leaving?" It was uncalled for, but there was a bit of accusation in her voice. Did he drag her out here to say goodbye? It would make sense, and she wanted to feel angry. Yet, she couldn't, and all she could do was hold his hand in a rather tight grip.

Her quiet concurrence was accept with a soft nod from the boy. Somewhere deep in him, he felt pleased that she'd taken his lead and hadn't argued as he'd expected her to. He supposed it was his completely altered demeanour at this current point in time- he was certainly not the cocky fool that Lena usually had the pleasure of being with. He was conflicted however and his usually confident persona was crumbling. His father had helped and certainly given him an option. He didn't have to stay in Vinátta and his father had told him that he could leave without guilt. He wasn't letting anyone down and he wouldn't be abandoning them, he knew that.

His question was responded to almost immediately and his flattened ears perked up once she began to explain. He hadn't thought about it like that- Lena had already left her home, her family. She'd come over to Vinátta on her own. New Dawn wasn't that far away, but he didn't think she'd been back to meet them. She spoke more and he realised he was feeling the same. He'd explored all he could within the parameters of Vinátta, knew every nook and cranny there was to know. He loved his home, the forest he affiliated with. But he also knew he wanted more. He found himself nodding softly at her words, accepting what she was saying and expanding his own thoughts on his feelings.

Her sharp accusation, on the other hand, caused him to look down at the dark female. Her hand had tightened its grip in his own, even if it was imperceptibly. She'd stopped their walk and he was forced to still with her. Blue eyes searched her face quickly, noting the edge to her voice, the accusation there. "I think I am..." He said softly, before the idea struck him and he turned to face the little female. "And I want you to come with me." He stated, no questioning to his tone. He couldn't leave her behind and that meant she'd have to follow him on his adventures.

Her answer seemed to satisfy him, and she was glad that she was able to give some advice. While her answer was true, another part of her reason was that he was here. She could have went to d'Arte, where the other half of her family rested. But, she was honestly probably closer to Temeraire than her brother and father, both of the males distant for a majority of her life until a few months ago. They were strangers, really, and who knows, maybe that fact would never change? All that matter at that moment, though, was that she was content at being by her friend's side at a place she liked for the most part. Yet, she did not feel happy for long.

The thought was him leaving drew up a blank in mind, and she had imagine what things would be like without him. She did not know many others around here besides the former New Dawn wolves, and she wouldn't thing she'd have the muse to go out a socialize. She could easily imagine spending her today's holed up in her house, and doing nothing, because there was nothing to do, at least nothing enjoyable and worth her time. Temeraire, she realized, was her only friend now. She knew she had Cody, but that was a whole other story. And, the only other pup, Lucia, she wasn't close to her at all. The boy was the first person her age that she had met out of New Dawn, the one that saved her life once upon a time, and he was leaving.

She did not want to listen to any excuse he was going to have, and she wished she had the guts to rip her hand away, but instead she stood there dumbly and heard the words he had to say. She tensed at the first thing he said. So, he was leaving. And then, he wanted her to come. She unlocked out from her tensed stance, and her eyes widened in surprise. Whatever hurt or anger she felt vanished from mind, and was left with another blank slate. It was filled with the possibilities, the freedom, of his offer; no pack to worry about, no parents, no rules, only the two of them. She wanted to ask where would they go—but then, what would it matter? They could go to the edge of the world, if they wanted to, she thought.

A wide grin jumped to her face, and she pulled on his arm with a playful tug. "What are we waiting for, then? For someone to tell us no? Let's go!" She had little to nothing to her name, and the only two things she had was her cloth for her eyes and the Frithr necklace, both of which was with her. She didn't know a few minute ago, but she was ready to leave, and they were wasting daylight, for it would be night soon. But then, they had all the time in the world.

It occurred to him that the two of them had never spoken together as seriously as they had now. While the boy was torn about what he wanted to do and sorely needed her advice, he was certainly entertaining the idea of leaving and having Lena all to himself. Of course, he didn't think she had been meeting very many others- he couldn't help but keep an eye on her and often he followed her most recent tracks to see what she was doing. He would never admit this to her though, nor to anyone else for that matter. Despite the anger in her tone, he found he wasn't upset by it. His heart beat had quickened just slightly, a flush covering his body as he held her hand in his own. It might not have been a huge connection, but their fingers intertwined felt right to him.

Blue eyes searched her face and for a moment he couldn't quite get a read on what she was feeling before relief made itself known. The grin swished over her lips and the male felt the odd desire to lean forward slightly, inhaling softly as she tugged on his arm. Her words were excited. He allowed a laugh to escape and once he started, he didn't seem to be able to stop. It was cathartic, after the weeks he'd spent unsure of what was wrong and the emotional turmoil of trying to decide whether he should leave or not. Lena had taken his demand and she seemed excited about it.

"I can't just leave right now, Lennie. I need some time to say goodbye to my family and get some things sorted out. Give me a couple of days?" He questioned, thinking of his younger siblings. He hadn't spent much time with them and he wanted to at least make sure they remembered him. He wanted to say goodbye to his family and he knew it would be a hard thing to do. But for the first time in weeks, he felt at peace with himself, a decision made was always something the boy looked for.

She did not think over her decision, for she did not have too. What was there to think about? It was too simple for her to take what was now precious time and squander it on mulling over an obvious answer: they were close friends, and it seemed that is was already decided before they even knew it themselves that where one was to go, the other will follow. It just seemed natural, and to question it was about as rational as asking yourself why the sun rose; you could not explain it, but you can't stop it, either.

The suddenness of the situation was still overwhelming her, and she was prepared to race him to the borders, (though she did not think that through, for she did not know where direction to head to, exactly) and only his words stopped her from having a head start. She was half a moment confused, and then she understood him. "Take all the time you need," she said with a gentler smile. But, it automatically widened, almost reflexively, as she added, "Yeah, but don't take too long, okay? I don't want you to give out on me." She was joking, of course, only for the sake of adding a bit of humor to their conversation. It had been too serious for too long, and, additionally, she did not want to seem like she was being too soft.

She was quiet for a moment, and she noticed she was still holding onto his hand. Now that the weigh that was pressing down on Temeraire was lifted, and the atmosphere being that of jokes and laughter, it felt almost awkward to be holding his hand. It didn't feel bad, but... weird, and it made her flush a little. "So," she stated lightly, swinging her arm again but in a more playful way than in an urgent one like earlier, "what do you think we'll do? Or is there no plan of action?" For some reason, she liked the latter thought better. Winging it, and taking what they get, sounded more excitable than thinking things over.
