Something wild

OOC: Forward dated to July 16; Located in the Dampwoods

Hartt had set out for a hunt, outside Casa's territory for the first time since she had returned to her home. Things had finally settled, her youngest two were older so she didn't feel the need to remain so close. Still, she wouldn't be going too far on this trip after all, seeing as she had already caught onto the scent of a small herd of deer. Night had actually accompanied the white mother as well, meaning she wasn't completely alone on this little trip. Her little black furred daughter strode along beside her, the pair donning their four legged lupus forms for a bit more natural hunt.

The pair followed the scent trail until the herd slowly started to come into view. They kept downwind so as not to startle the deer as her dark pelted girl moved around to the side of the herd. Hartt looked the herd over, spotting a smaller, old doe. The white woman motioned to her daughter so she knew which one was to be their target. Night gave a nod of understanding before inching forward. She leapt at the herd, startling them and sending them off towards her mother. The dark fae nipped at the ankles of the old doe, moving to separate her from the rest of the herd as Hartt made a move towards the deer, bringing it down as quick as possible. With the doe down, the pair of females shifted into their optime forms. Hartt hoisted the small doe onto her shoulders and carried it back to where they had left some of their stuff a short distance back. The white mother set the deer down and collected her dagger, starting to work on skinning the beast.

Not so far from the mother-daughter duo, Lycidas was walking alongside one of the several streams that unraveled itself through the wooded area. He stood on two legs, most notably in his Optime form, with his hands tight around the catgut strings of a backpack made almost entirely of Deer Hide. He had been using his thumbs to keep the strong strings from weighing down against his shoulders, which were quite sore after about a day of walking. Even though his shoulders ached, and his stomach growled, he knew that it would be too late to turn back now. His only regret? Not packing enough food. His stomach pain was almost more powerful than the aching in his shoulders, and his bones felt as though they were ready to collapse. Where was he even headed for? And for what? He had almost stopped in his tracks to reconsider his journey when his gaze met the pair working together to bring down an elderly doe.

He couldn't help but watch as the pair shifted into their own Optime forms, much more convenient for the task of carrying off the limp body. He would follow them from a distance until they settled down to skin the doe, then he decided to come forward. He stepped past the trees and the thick brush that separated them, walking into view with a friendly smile. "Need any help?" He asked before quickly adding on, "I know how tedious it can be to skin the animals."

Hartt had been hard at work skinning the doe when her daughter nudged her shoulder. That was when she noticed the scent clinging to the air. There was another male approaching the pair. Her head snapped up as a boy came into view, likely still just a yearling based on his appearance. He moved out from between the trees, a smile on his face as he offered some assistance. Her head cocked to the side as she glanced over the boy, an eyebrow raised at his offer.

Sure, let's see how you do with skinning. I'm wanting to use this hide for leather so be sure not to damage it. Her words sounded a little harsh, but she wanted to see how the boy would do. She was intrigued by his offer when he was still young himself. For one so young to be able to skin an animal well would certainly be impressive. Even Night still had trouble doing it without nicking a hole or two in the hide and she had Hartt to teach her the proper technique. A knife was held out for the boy as the white woman moved back from the kill. It was then that she noticed how thin the boy looked, making it clear that he was hungry, near starvation. Before he could take the knife, she pulled it back, leaning back over the doe again and cutting out a good sized chunk of flesh. First, you need to eat. She wasn't going to put someone to work when they were so hungry. The boy actually reminded her of her mate, how she had found him nearly skin and bones because he wasn't feeding himself well. She wouldn't let the same happen to this yearling.

Lycidas' ears flinched at the sound of her subtly harsh tone. The tone alone had reminded him of his father, and his seriousness. He had only ever seen him smile once, or maybe twice. It was something that had rarely ever happened. His father would always tell him, "Work now, grieve later." The words seemed to echo in his mind as his gaze lingered on the knife. He had begun to reach for it when the white female had suddenly retracted the knife.

Curious, he lifted a brow and watched as she cut out the chunk of meat. He nearly began to drool, watching the meat separate from the rest, and whenever it was offered to him, he carefully took it from her. He silently thanked her, gesturing toward the meat and nodding as he sank his teeth into the raw flesh. From that initial bite, he began to devour it rather quickly. It became more apparent that he hadn't eaten in days, if not weeks. When it came down to the last couple of bites, he had tried to slow himself down to savor the flavor. He wasn't sure when his next meal might be.

When finished, he slid out of the backpack and settled it on the ground behind him. "Thank you, I really enjoyed that," He stated. "Now, let's get to work." He lowered himself down nearby the females and extended a hand toward Hartt for the knife
