He shifted at the edge of the encampment, purple eyes settled on the trees above him. At the edge of the small enclosed area was a cave that stood stark against the landscape, old and decrepit yet not very dark considering the fact that it was illuminated by the bright crisp light of his fire that bounded from the walls and along the glimmering lake of water within it. He supposed that with it being so close to the water, it often received the company of canines passing by.

When he approached, it had been a sight scattered with remnants of old camps, a fire here and there, wood cut but never used off to the side, bones from meals buried yet dug up from animals that had passed by in the evening.

His own fire was not so large that it could have been spotted easily from the surrounding woods. Its scent was enough to drawl the attention of others, though he wasn't too worried about defending himself. He had his bow nearby and his knives clung to his sides at the edge of his bag. He lay against a couple of old pelts he often carried at Veloce's side when he left the pack with him. His own horse stood close to the cave, never going inside since they weren't quite sure if another creature was within it.

From the sound of it, just a few bats clung to the cave as homes. He did not scent bears within the vicinity, though he had come across one or two of them on the path here, narrowly avoiding getting in their paths. He rose from the ground, moving to grab for the water skin at the edge of the clearing.

Since he was only using Veloce for carrying his belongings on this trip, he only allowed him to drink a couple of times per day. He had done so right before they'd found this place an hour or two before. Night was coming soon.

The dullness of pack life was beginning to hit her once again. There was only so much Sybil could do before she started getting this feeling. It was the same every single time. When this feeling crept into her, it meant she needed to take some time away from Sapient and find something enjoyable to do. In the past, this usually meant spending the night with a male she happened to come across, each of them more than happy to share a good time with her. If this could happen again, then there would be no complaining from her in a while. It wasn't like she was old enough to bare pups anyways, so there was nothing to fear from a fun night.

The coyote girl slipped past the borders, letting her blue eyes scan the area around her. This was probably the hardest part of her decision making, figuring out which way to go. She was so used to traveling south towards Inferni that this time it might do her some good to either head either north or west.

Sybil's paws carried her northwest, letting her mind wander. Once she found something interesting, then she would follow it. Until then, there was no harm in heading in a direction that seemed to be in both her intended options.

There was a strange scent in the area that seemed to catch her attention. It smelled like fire. Unless there was a large fire nearby, this meant someone was close to where she was. The girl's paws carried her in the direction of the smell, soon coming to the cave. Her eyes darted around to the other encampments, though soon focused on the one in front of her. There was someone familiar in front of the small fire. Sybil gave an amused flick of her tail as she stepped forward, So this is where you have been hiding Vedetta. I was wondering what happened to you.

He spent a lot of his time outside the pack. There was much to be done within the pack's lands but sometimes the daunting tasks ahead of him sent him careening through the woods toward the solace of his hunting trips and the obvious lack of others around. It was not unlike him to wander around the pack land's borders for days before going on one of these little trips of his though they were far and few in between since his real passion was working on his commissions and leather projects. He had leaned back and into the safety of his pelted pallet at the edge of the fire,

It made no sense to him, sleeping off of the ground since it was so hot during the summer days anyway. The ground held the chill of the evening more than the heat and the evening sky was already coming down around him, the fire crackling just a few feet away. While the place was used as an encampment by others on a regular basis, he had it alone to himself, or he would have if Sybil hadn't sauntered from the woods. He had not seen the girl recently, spending most of his time with either Faizel or hanging out with the new comer to the pack, Lithia.

His head lifted, regal gaze swiftly moving across the clearing to the girl as she broke through the trees, her voice carrying over the space between them. "You make it sound like I've been missing for weeks," he started with a small, lingering grin. "It's a small world when you come upon me by accident."

He let his gaze cut from her to the fire and then to the logs scattered about. "Or were you following me?" he asked playfully. "Take your pick of seats. The fire's warm. I don't have any food prepared so make yourself at home." He rose slowly to sit against the tree at his back, one of his feet moving to settle on the pelt, the other remaining in place.

With Sybil being away from the pack one and off, it was a bit hard to tell who was around, and when on a daily basis. There were some members of the pack she saw often, but then again, some not so much. It was a shame Kin couldn't be one of the ones she rarely saw.. but then again, that could also be a bad thing. Not seeing the gray woman might mean she was spending the time with Nivosus that should have been for her. Competing with Kin was growing tiresome, but it seemed she wasn't about to let things go, so neither would the coyote.

Vedetta was someone the girl didn't see all too often. It wasn't like she actively sought him out, but even when she was just wandering around Sapient, he wasn't anywhere to be found. It was a shame this was the case since he had promised to make her some new clothing sometime soon. She was really looking forward to that. Just another bonus to finding him on this particular time being outside. This would be a good day.

Sybil saw the smirk crawling along the orange man's face. He joked with her, but that just made things better. She closed the gap between the two of them, giving an amused flick of her tail, Well, with how little I see you, how do I know you haven't been gone for weeks? You seem to have a habit of sneaking off just like I do. Who knows what you could be up to out here. The girl offered him a wink.

The coyote moved to the fire, sitting on the opposite side of Vedetta. She crossed her legs, letting her arms rest against them, I saw you coming this way, so I followed you. Do you come here often?

He felt his lips pull back over his teeth in amusement, his fingers moving absentmindedly to brush back the single white strain of his hair away from his face so that he could see her clearly. A sight for sore eyes, most would think. then again, he didn't know her as well as he knew some others and while he rarely saw her throughout the pack's lands or even outside, it didn't stop him from making promises that he always kept. Irregardless of whether she had followed him or not, he knew that he was safe in the outdoors.

He would have noticed her if she had stayed close but she had obviously kept a decent pace away from him, keeping out of sight, and downwind, rather than letting her scent be caught and outing her presence to the hunter who sat across from her.

His lingering gaze remained on her for a moment longer before he crossed his arms over his chest, a hand rising to cup at his jaw. "If I didn't know any better, Sybil, I might have said that was your attempt at flirting with me." He flashed her an innocent smile before his gaze shifted back to the flames and then over to Veloce who stood starkly still at his area of the encampment, eyes away from the duo of canines resting near the flames.

"I sneak off for a good reason as I'm sure you do as well. I am curious about what you do on your lonesome." His finger at his chin outstretched and thoughtfully settled at the tip of his maw, tapping thoughtfully at his lips.

"I haven't forgotten about your new clothes. I'm in the process of making them right now, well, not this very moment but when I'm at home or not so busy out here." He smoothed out, letting his leg rest against the ground, outstretched once more with the other, his tail weaving against the ground beneath him, the pelt that covered it. "If I had to put a guess on it, I'd say they'll be ready within the next week or so. Austri's been helping size them and with the fabric they need."

It was almost as if Vedetta forgot who he was talking to. This was Sybil, the daughter of the whore that was Nivosus, and she too wasn't afraid at admitting she was one as well. In fact, she often prided herself on it, knowing she could bed many men and get away with it. Even if they were to result in something else, she knew she could be better than her father. She wouldn't ignore any progeny like he did. She noticed the smile he had given her before letting his purple gaze be drawn back down to the flames. Sybil chuckled, Why Vedetta, you wound me. No man is safe from me, not even you. You should just liven up a little more.

'Good reason.' Sure, that was one way to put it. The coyote didn't really know what it was he did outside of Sapient, nor did she really care. Everyone was free to do as they pleased, so long as they were not causing trouble to those they were in good standing with. Both of them were smart enough to do that, I do as I please. I grow bored being stuck in routine day in and day out. I need my freedom. He really didn't need to know more than that. He could fill in the blanks for himself.

Sybil's head moved up and stared at the orange man. It was as if he knew what she was thinking about. It wasn't hard to guess she was looking for them, but to ask so soon after finding him. There must have been some other force behind it. Still, it was nice to have an update on everything, That I good to hear. I was wondering if I was every going to get them. You must be a mind-reader Vedetta. How did you know I was going to ask about them?

The girl might have been related to Nivosus but Vedetta preferred to think of her as a respectable girl. The idea never crossed his mind that she might have been even slightly interested in him and it didn't really settle with him right then, whether she was or not. Flirting was something he had some skill in and he could see in her something of himself, with all his many talents. She was confident in her ability but he was more than a little interested in how she thought she could even holster the possibility that he was unsafe around her clutch. He found it amusing.

"You can certainly feel free to try your hand, Sybil, we all know that I'd like to see you try," he said with that smooth toned Italian accent of his.

He didn't know what she did when she was away. No one inside Sapient knew what he did when he was gone, other than hunting which was pretty much the majority of his time spent away. He liked his peace and when he stood inside Sapient's borders, sometimes that was harder to find with those who wanted leather materials made or books bound. He shifted in his spot against the tree, leaning forward to hold his hands out toward the fire as if to warm them. "You can tag along with me if you want, from time to time -- If you think you can keep up," he offered innocently enough. "I figure you'll grow bored with it, though."

The moonlight cut quick swatches through the tree's branches above them, sending a cascade of silver light to bounce off of the glinting metal surface of his knives that settled in the pack on Veloce's back, hanging somewhat loosely from the pack itself since he hadn't tightened it down very well after he put the few he used to get the fire started back.

"Anyone who approaches me after I've promised or agreed to something asks me about it at some point or another. It only seemed logical that you would too given time. I'm just getting ahead of the game so as to avoid small talk," he admitted.

Truth be told Sybil really didn't have much of a romantic interest in Vedetta. He was better as a friend, and one she could always turn to when she needed a new look for herself. His leather working skills were the best in all of Sapient, and combined with Austri's talents, they made for a fashionable combination. Still, he wasn't doing anything to help this situation with the smooth tone he chose to use when addressing her on the matter of her behavior. This just made her all the more willing to try things out on him. Just how far would the two of them be able to lead each other on? She grinned to his challenge, leaning in towards him, Then you better watch out. I'll get you when you least expect it.

He was kind enough to offer to let her tag along, but the part he mentioned after that brought more of a devious look to her grin. Did he assume she wouldn't be able to otherwise? She could hunt just fine, and if she brought along Naseer for some more training, then they would be able to catch plenty, both for themselves and for the other members of Sapient. It would do her some good to work with the blue bird anyways. The two of them hadn't spent much time together, and she actually kind of missed him, Don't underestimate me Vedetta. I will be able to keep up just fine. As long as there are gaps in your little trips you won't have to worry about me growing bored.

The orange male was smart, something the coyote girl could get behind. He knew she would be coming to him eventually, so to him it was just a matter of time before she finally came out and asked. As for the avoidance of small talk, well given that Sybil was the one who found him, there was no way he would be able to get out of that, not unless he had something up his sleeve that they could partake in, Well, you are kind of stuck with me for the time being, so there must be something we can talk about, or something we can do. I don't feel like leaving anytime soon.
