Fir Chilis is the name given to the dense string of forested land that fills much of Blossom Forest. There are two different populations, depending on where in the land you are. To the north lays the deciduous forest, full of maples, oaks, birches, and beeches. To the south lay a coniferous forest full of pines and firs. No matter where you are, the trees shelter you from the sun and the rain and the snow. Take care not to get lost in the woods however - you may never find your way out. There are other dangerous here too - predators waiting for their own prey. While the land is prosperous they do not pose too much of a threat, but whenever famine or drought hits, they will attack anything... even other Putnar.

Those looking to hunt will find the forests well stocked - there are white-tailed deer, turkeys, red squirrels, chipmunks, mermots, and moose.


I just know thereís something dark in me and I hide it.

But itís always there;;

Darkness overtook the young female. It was all too much to think about and focus on right now. She didnít know what she was supposed to do, and the uncertainty was going to drive her mad. This was the first time her and Akuji had fought this way. Sure they had gotten into smaller fights here and there, anyone raising a teenage girl would have that happen. But this was different. Whenever they fought before it wasnít harsh and cruel like this. She would storm off in anger, and he would let her go, knowing that she would come back. Apologies would be spoken on both end within the day and all was well, all was normal. But this was not normal. She knew that her father did not have a good past, but she had never seen this cruel side of him before. The things that he had said to both her and Horizon were meant to do nothing but really hurt. They cut deeper than any actual wound could, and it hurt her in ways that she didnít know was possible. Did he mean that he didnít care what happened to her? It seemed that way in the moment. She had expected him to come and find her by now, to say that he was sorry and that he didnít mean what he had said. That he would always be there to protect her and watch over her, as Shasta had always assumed would be the case, and that he loved her.

As the long stilted kalak curled into a ball, trying to make herself as small as possible, as if that would hide her from the hurt and pain she was feeling, she could sense that another being was approaching. She didnít open her eyes though, only shutting them tighter, her muscles stiff and aching, clearly not relaxed and sleeping. She knew that her tense form would not fool anyone, and she didnít care. She wanted Akuji to find her, to come and comfort her. To be her daddy. Shasta felt the form of another being crawling toward her, and she told herself it was Akuji. Who else could it be? She didnít have any friends, not in Cold Summers, and she didnít have any family left. Her mother had left her the second that the pups were old enough to not need milk anymore, and her siblings had all disappeared. A scary thought entered her head for a moment. What if it was Farant, or one of his wolves? Akuji kept telling her that he would come for her, that he would steal her and hurt her and do terrible things to her. It was one of the reasons that her father had taught her all that he had and why the pair had stayed close together. This was the longest that they had been apart and she was nowhere near her home pack. When she had stormed off in the past she didnít leave Cold Summers packlands, knowing it was safer there. But now she didnít even know where she was, hiding out somewhere, alone and vulnerable.

But Shasta was not entirely weak and helpless. Akuji had put good instincts in her, ones that would help her survive. She knew how to fight and defend herself, and she didnít need another being to do that for her. Really she knew that if Farant did come for her, she would need help to survive because he was not stupid enough to come alone. But right now she wasnít thinking about that. She was planning in her head how to react to this creature that was coming towards her. If she assumed it was Akuji and was wrong she could get hurt. If she assumed it was Farant and lashed out and it wasnít him, she could hurt another being. Well whoever it was would deserve it for coming at her uninvited, and if it was her father then he really did deserve it. And so her mind was made up, and her fight or flight instincts took over. Her form stiffened even more, if that was even possible, and she leapt backwards, a snarl of warning on her features. If it turned out to be a stranger, she wouldnít take time to let them explain themselves and would lunge forward, trying to let her daggers sink into anything she could reach. If it was Akuji, she would give him a moment to speak before doing the same thing.

What the femme was not expecting to see was Horizon. She hadnít even thought of him in the last few minutes, and guilt swam over her. She was not the only one that had been attacked by her fatherís harsh words, and she had left the male on his own. She did not know if he had made friends in Munashii Gekko, but she hadnít even asked if he had anyone to go to or talk to about the incident that had gone on, and that was unkind of her. As his familiar scent washed over her nares, she visibly relaxed. Her form was no longer stiff and ready to fight, her pelt relaxed and lay still, and her maw took on an apologetic look rather than an aggressive one. Chocolate brown portals looked at the male, now seeing that he had once more brought her something to eat, this time a fish. He mumbled for a moment, the fish still in his mouth, and she couldnít understand the words that he said, but she gave him a smile, stifling back a laugh that had tried to escape from her throat. Horizon put the fish on the ground, and pushed it towards her as he spoke, this time with clarity, though his vocals were husky, as if he was not used to using them. ďWell, I just wanted to make sure you were okay. I brought you the fish cause I figured you really hadnít eaten all day, and I thought you might want something. Iím sorry, Shasta. I hadnít meant to upset youÖĒ

Shasta felt bad for her initial reaction, and padded forward, tail no longer hostile behind her as it had been before but laying limp behind her. Her motions and features were apologetic, wanting him to know that she had not meant to come off so harshly towards him once again. ĒThank you, Horizon.Ē She lay down in front of the fish, suddenly feeling exhausted. ĒDo not apologize, it wasnít you that upset me. JustÖ.AkujiÖ.Ē She took a bite of the fish, and realized how hungry she was. ĒWould you share it with me?Ē She didnít want to be selfish with the food he had brought her. He had already been nicer to her than any other being had been before. It was something she was not used to and she was still trying to figure out the proper way to act. ĒBut how are you doing? It wasnít just me that Akuji had attacked back thereÖĒ Her vocals trailed off, feeling bad for the damage her father had caused. Brown orbs looked away, not wanting to meet Horizonís gaze and let him see how upset she really was.

hearing you words
my thoughts
I walk on
