When solid ground grows soft with emerald moss and rivulets of black mud, and coffee-colored water pours slowly around the trunks of densely carpeted trees, this marks the beginning of Laod Mor: the swamp of Blossom Forest. Time itself seems to slow to a soporific crawl . . . the humid jungle air grows stagnant, thick with the scent of rich flooded earth and an abundance of green things that can be found nowhere else—except perhaps Caidir Olc. In some areas of the swamp, water rises so high the only way to cross it is to crawl across fallen logs or massive roots arching from their liquid beds; in other places a wolf might wade easily through the mire—or find a fortunate stretch of mostly dry earth. Pieces of the great river, Glaesfaet Sceawere, also slice through from time to time: small falls that feed into surprisingly clear pools, only to terminate into tar-like pits. Of course, Laod Mor’s beauty shines brightest at night. Here, fireflies gather at all times of the year . . . suffusing the shadowy place with millions of twinkling lights.

Those looking to hunt here of course find a myriad of water prey, including caiman, turtles, fish, crayfish, otters, and toads.


don't tempt fate

Something about the creature before me seems so intriguing and yet so sad all at the same time. Who is he and where does he come from? What's his life story? He almost seems to be in pain, something in his eyes that reminds me so much of Malice, my old mate. Malice was a complex creature. Other wolves only saw what he wanted them to see, a solitary beast who didn't like company and he liked it that way. BUt once you got past his barriers, you could see the loving creature behind the mask, the wolf who hated himself so much that he didn't think he deserved happiness or love. I was finally able to make him see that it wasn't true and he became the love of my life. Unfortunately it wasn't to be because he went on a hunting mission and got himself killed. I was there with him in those final moments and it broke my heart.

Seeing Sylus like this just makes me see Malice all over again. I see another aching heart just burning for someone to get close. He blinks a lot like he's trying to focus on me so I wait patiently. When he speaks, I smile softly and shrug. "Cold Summers is wonderful. It's the only pack I've ever been a part of. I came here for a change of scenery, I guess. A chance to meet new faces. Seems I hit the jackpot today." I try not to let my face show the disappointment that he hasn't given his name yet. Perhaps I just need to win his trust a little more first. I look back up at him. "So what about you? You just come here for the view?"
