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’.


dont try to hold me back

And I plan to be...

The brute nodded at her explanation for why she refused to enter the water, smiling down at her, which only made her feel as if he was being condescending. That makes sense. Just let me know if you ever change your mind. Nzingha slowly nodded, though she knew that she would never change her mind. There was nothing there to explain why she was scared of the water, though she would never admit to that fear. She had never almost drown, or been caught in a monsoon without shelter. No one she knew had ever been killed in water, nor had she nor anyone she knew been swept downstream. Perhaps it was simply that Shae had never introduced the pups to water when they were young. There was not a large amount of water within Moondown Shadows, but even if there had been, it was unlikely that the pups would have encountered it. Shae had kept them mainly within the confines of her den, anyhow. And hardly had she ever played with them. The kalak had coddled them, cuddled them, taught them certain things about the world, and ensured their undying loyalty to her. Most of the other pups were blind to her actions and goals, but Nzingha was as similar to Shae as if the kalak was her own mother. Nzingha had the same sharp mind, had the same desire for safety and power. Once she was fully grown, she would have the means to manipulate others the way Shae did. Already, Nzingha was a wonder of a child, her mind too knowledgeable for her age. She was adorable now, but she would be a beauty when she was older. The pup indeed knew about Shae… but had not been able to resist falling for her either. Nzingha had ties to the ess, and would do nearly anything for her. But she also resented the fact that Shae had been able to manipulate her, and thus sought to rebel against her as any child would.

Let’s move on to something else then. With that, Summer turned away from her, the very tip of his tail flicking back toward the woods, indicating which direction they were heading, and that she should follow him. The pair travelled through the groves in silence, until the King that was her uncle and now father began to inquire about her previous pack. It was only natural that he was curious about where his two sister had lived, where his nieces and nephews had been born and raised. But to Nzingha, it was just another land made up of its individual parts.

They fell silent again, Summer clearly put off by his “daughter’s” lack of words or descriptions. As they finished travelling, Nzingha felt poorly about how she had acted, how she had acted like a child and lashed out. And so, once they reached the clearing, she thanked him for showing her around the territory, and inquired as to the usage of the clearing, which he described in full. Yes, all the meetings are held here. That’s most likely when you will meet the rest of the pack, unless you find some other wolves in your wanderings in the pack. It’s important for all the wolves to show up to stay on top of what is going on in this pack and in others. And ranks are given out to those that come and participate in pack activities. Nzingha nodded, showing that she understood the point of the area. A pack meeting was not something that she had attended before, but Moondown Shadows had been quiet the entire time that Nzingha and her siblings had been there. She then began to inquire about the pack wanted to have all the knowledge that she cool. His response was less than telling, for he focused mainly on his own history and family as opposed to the pack itself. Unfortunately you and I are the only family here. I do not have a mate so in that sense no you do not have a new mother. If you want you may think of Shae as your mother if that is how you saw her, or my sister Lady, who was your birth mother

Nzingha nodded – she knew about her birth mother. Shae may have hidden things from Nzingha’s siblings, but she had been brutally honest with Nzingha herself. I thought for a long time that my family was dead, until Shae told me about your mother. I also recently found out my brother, your uncle, Grey Wind also survived the war that I assume killed the rest of our family, besides your siblings of course. He lives in a pack called Abendrot. Now this, this was information Nzingha had not known about before. She paused her stride and thought about the possibility that this was knowledge that Shae had hidden from her… but the only way to know the truth of it would be either to ask Shae directly, or to travel there and meet her distant family. “So is he… your… our only remaining family then?” Her words came out slowly, for she at once felt both alone and free. She wanted so much to belong, but if she was related to no one, then she would have no one to answer to… but perhaps having relatives would prove advantageous – by having them be her first ring of spies.
