Glaesfaet Sceawere is the name gifted to the mother river that flows through the center of Blossom Forest, bringing life and sustenance to all of the lands. It breaks off in many places, giving birth to smaller streams and estuaries, but the main body flows from the lake high in the north in Dierne Hrof all the way south down through Uyaraut to empty into the ocean. It is a fresh water river, but down through Uyaraut, the salt water does taint it. In places, parts of the river are underground and run through caverns unseen from aboveground.

Water buffalo grace these shores - with plenty of meat, though at a dangerous cost. Many river trout leap upstream daily.

It was silly, perhaps, to worry about the teen who had disappeared. He was a teenager, Afterall, and boys will be boys. This was the time in his life when he should be experimenting and making mistakes. How else was one to learn if not from mistakes, be they someone else's or your own. But Hellene had taken a liking to the young brute, as inappropriate as that may be. He was unique, at least to her, because of his kalak bloodlines, and he was never once put off by her gruffness, except perhaps for the first time that they had met. She had been reprimanding Universe, but Brendon had thought that she was yelling at him instead. But once he had begun to mature, he had really come into his own, and had become charming and irresponsible... He was trouble. But Hellene had always been attracted to trouble, though never before had it been in the form of a brute before. Ad, always in the past, Athene had been there to save her. To tell her of her errors... To talk. Not for the first time since the sisters had parted ways, the timberess found herself missing her older sister. Though they were only half sisters and could not look more different, they had been brought up in the same environment and were very similar in many ways as well.

When the ess had been at Spring Grounds, assisting Chenzii in renegotiating the alliance for Kalgalath, she had thought that she had come upon her sister's perfume, but had ignored it, thinking that it was just remnants from when they had gone there together. About a week had passed since then, and Hellene found herself wondering... What if the perfume had been newly placed? After all, she had not picked up on her own scent, and it had been the same amount of time since they both had left. How could Athene's have lasted after all of this time and Hellene's not?

Her mind made up, she decided to visit Spring Grounds and call for her sister, to see if she truly was there. Zev had visited Aurora Borealis, looking for her... At least this way they would know either way - either where Athene was, or another place which she was not. Per usual, Hellene found herself traversing the land of Blossom Forest by starting at her favorite spot - the northwestern shore of Leisure Lake, where it abutted Aurora Borealis' southern border, and then followed it up its tributaries. Roundabout Romance River, she paused. She was not tired, persay, but she had no reason to be in a rush and therefore had decided to take a pause by this particular section of the river. Never before had she stopped here, though she had travelled though it many a time. Hellene kept herself too occupied with her job as the pack's shaman to waste any time on frivolous activities like looking for a mate. Her childhood pack had not believed in love, and in truth they had been taught that mates were chosen out of functionality and for logical reasons. Love was a hindrance, a weakness. Being in Blossom Forest had weakened that ideology for her, especially after Athene and Zev had picked up their romance... And then of course there was Kalgalath and Sebring. But it just didn't seem to be in the cards for Hellene.

Mottled furs bristled as she slowed her motion and walked to the river's edge, dipping her maw and allowing her tongue to escape to taste the waters. She had drank from the river before, moreso from the lake itself, but today, there was something different. It was as if her innards were warmed immediately when the waters hit her belly... And there was something pleasant about the taste. Normally it was water, and just water, but now it was flavored... Something sweet perhaps? Hellene was not sure what it was, but continued to drink, enjoying the feeling that even now was spreading throughout her body, seeping into her veins. All thoughts of her sister were gone, and her thoughts began to blur as an uncharacteristic smile planted itself firmly upon her kissers.
