Disaster has struck!
I had never thought Andras of all wolves would find me today. I stand before my mother, feeling anger and betrayal. She comes to find me, using pet names and trying to be gentle only to show me the consequences of not seeing her children. She's pregnant again, soon to have more puppies to carry on the legacy of her and her Angel mate. Well, she can have him. She can have the little welps too. I could care less. My lip curls up, my eyes darkening as I stiffen, read to turn and walk away. How dare she come after me and expect me to embrace her with open arms?
When the next scent suddenly hits me, I snap my head around, wanting a distraction anyway. When I see the dark male from my former pack, my head immediately lowers in submission, my ears flicking back. what is he doing here? Is he here to voice his disappointment in me for leaving, for not bringing him the two elk skulls I promised? The lone skull is in a bush right behind me. I watch with curiosity as he approaches, not sure what to expect.
As he flashes a fang at me, I don't get a sense of anger from him. If anything, I sense...satisfaction. How can he be satisfied with this? My ears flicker uncertainly. At his words, I understand. He agrees with me, feeding my betrayal. She didn't invite us to Diveen. Didn't even ask if we wanted to live with her and her new boy toy. Of course I would have declined cause Iromar is my true home but still, would it have hurt her to show that she still cared? He's right. She didn't reach out to us. She didn't try. My hackles bristle. When he turns back to me, I prick my ears, eager for his words.
I scowl a little when he says that it was too challenging. I want to tell him no, that I had the second skull and I dropped it and it broke and I wouldn't bring him a broken skull. It had to be perfect. I want to tell him that I can do it, that I can do that plus more. I can bring him the moon if that's what he wants, anything to prove myself. But his last question gains my attention. He wants to go get it together? My tail lifts some, eyes shining with hope. I did pick up on the Dearest in his words. I'm not sure what that's about but I'll take that over anger any day.
I can sense his urge to attack when he looks at Chernobyl and so maybe it's best if I distract him with taking up his offer. A win-win, really. I save my mother's miserable life and keep the uneasy peace between Diveen and Iromar while gaining some time with the alpha I admire. I nod.
"Yes...let's do that."
