Perhaps changed most of all out of all of the packs is this place. It was stripped out of its forested home and now instead lays at the edge of an ocean. The vast sparkling eternity of the water lays to the south of the land, while the rest of the land is made of rocky outjuttings. Gone are the trees, and all that remains for greenery are the short shrubs that dot the paths in the rock, and the moss that grows thanks to the spray of the waves. Further toward the shore, barnacles are a plenty, and look to cut the pads of those who slip on the wet surface. These extend out into the water itself, and the tough land has multiple caverns scraped into it, providing ample dens for the wolves that live there. Depending on the tide, however, the lower caverns may flood, and the vicious swirling water may prove to be dangerous as there is a strong undertide ready to pull unsuspecting swimmers to their doom. Even the tide itself is powerful enough to push intruders against one cliff or another. The ocean does provide, however, plenty of food for those who brave the waters - there are many breeds of seals and sea lions, though the males that protect each of these are vicious and territorial. There are also turtles that come ashore to breed and to lay their eggs - both the adults and the eggs themselves can provide sustenance to the wolves. But they must take care - the water is deep enough to allow sharks to come to shore from the depths below. Those unwilling to venture the waves or wet their paws with the moist sand of the shore can find snakes and hares in the rocky outcroppings, but they must beware the Komodo dragon and other monitor lizards that perch upon the shore - they are swift and move in groups, not to mention they carry venom in their bite that causes immense pain, paralysis, and prevents blood clotting. This is not the land for the weak of heart or the weak at all really. This is Uyaraut - ‘The Diamond in the Rough’.


What is Dead May Never Die

Family. Duty. Honor.


Although the brute had never had pups of his own, at least not yet, he knew the correct way to act around them. Thus young female was not the first pup that he had been around, and he knew that she would not be the last. Even though anger towards the female kalak that had brought his niece to him, he would not let her see that, would not act angry towards her. It was in no way her fault that Shae felt entitled enough to choose where Nzingha’s siblings would live, that blame was entirely for the other female. As much as Summer wanted to stalk off and find Shae to take his anger and frustration out on her, he would not leave his niece. The brute would have to deal with Shae later, after he got Nzingha settled into Bright Moon and comfortable in her new home. He only hoped that she would enjoy her time here and would not feel as if she had been forced to come here against her will.

As Naingha spoke of Shae and what she had apparently told her to tell him, he wondered how much she really knew. How much she knew about her mother and particularly her father, if she knew that that brute had done. Summer sincerely hoped that she did not know, she was too young to know such things, even though she would have to know the truth eventually. But from the way she talked maybe Shae had already told her. It would not surprise him if she felt that she needed to tell the pups what had happened, even though that was not her decision to make. But, despite the pup’s words, her actions seemed innocent enough so maybe her young innocence was not yet corrupted.

The brute was surprised when Nzingha’s small form approached him so quickly, nuzzling against his leg. Maybe she would settle in well here if she was already comfortable with him. He knew that they were truly family, but he would not blame her if she did not believe him and thought his words to be lies. Summer was just glad that she did believe him and already seemed to trust him, something that he knew was important in any pack and family, and he truly wanted her to feel like part of the family. When they began to speak of titles and what she was to call him, she shook her head at his suggestions, and he did not have to wait long to hear what she had to say instead. “I can’t call you Uncle Summer if you are technically also going to be my dad. What about a mix of ‘dad’ or ‘father’ and ‘uncle’? Like… ‘duncle’ or ‘funcle’ or ‘unther’… I like Unther. Unther Summer. It’s funny sounding but it will be like our little joke.” Summer let out a bark of a laugh at her words, something that only a pup would come up with. As silly as the word was he liked it. Like she said, having their own inside joke would help the two of them bond. ”Sounds perfect, Nzingha.” He laughed again, thinking of the silly word that she had come up with. The smoky colored brute nuzzled her in return once more before she spoke again.

“And I would love a tour! If this is going to be home I want to know it!” The brute nodded his head before rising to his paws from the sitting position he had been in for their greeting. ”Exactly, let’s get going shall we?” He headed towards the tree line of his territory that he had been put in charge of. His banner wagged behind him as he looked over his shoulder to make sure his niece was following him, he didn’t want her to get lost on their first day together. ”So, do you like to go swimming?” There was a stream that ran through Bright Moon, not as deep as some of the ones in Blossom, and certainly not as deep as the lake, but it was deep enough for a quick swim if she was the type that enjoyed that. He padded through the trees, letting the younger femme pick the pace so it was not too fast for her shorter limbs. When they got to the stream he paused at the edge for a drink before speaking again. ”This is one of the land marks in Bright Moon. The stream is always running here, so it is the best place to get fresh water. It’s even deep enough that it doesn’t freeze in the winter.” The brute waited to see if she wanted to jump in to swim before speaking again about the packlands.
