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 there’s something dark in me and I hide it.

But it’s always there;;

The female didn’t know how to handle the emotions that were swarming through her mind. Why had her father acted the way that he did? Did he really hate her and the other male like he made it seem? She thought that they had been so close, that they would always be best friends. She had always seen Akuji as her best friend. He had been the only varg that she had constant interaction with and she couldn’t imagine her life without him always with her. He taught her everything that she knew about life and how to survive. She thought that since her mother had left and she had been the only pup to stay around that it meant they bonded in a special way. But with the way that Akuji had left, she was beginning to doubt that. And when she saw him at the pack meeting of Cold Summers, things had gotten even worse. It was bad enough that someone had come in and kicked Caspian off of his throne, and to add salt to the wound, it was of the wrong breed. The impure breed. How could one that was not a kalak think that they could come in and take over in the pack where kalaks had always ruled? She had the same aggressive reaction that her father had had to this new male. She assumed that they would leave together, that Akuji would apologize to her and they would make up. Instead he didn’t look at her or speak one word to her, no response, either positive or negative to her presence being there.

Instead he had left with Katia, acting as if Shasta did not exist at all. That had been worse than any aggression or harsh words that he could have directed to her. Akuji acted as if his daughter did not exist. It felt like her entire world was coming crashing down. Fear and panic gripped her as she fled the pack meeting, knowing that she could never return there for multiple reasons. Without her father, it wouldn’t be home. And how could she pledge loyalty to one that was not worthy when it was so clearly Caspian’s role? Her paws had led her to the cliffs, hiding her form in the shadows, trying to make herself as small as possible. But then there was another being near her, speaking, mumbling and she reacted instinctually. She jumped to her paws, a growl on her kissers as her fur stood on end. It did not last long though as she realized that it was Horizon. Why had the male come to find her? Was he upset with her for how both she and her father had acted? She would not blame him if that was the case. Both herself and Akuji had acted in ways that was not acceptable, though she did blame the male more than herself. But the handsome kalak did not seem upset. In fact it was the opposite, he seemed concerned. Was it concern for her? She was not used to that. While Akuji had been a great teacher and mentor and father, he was not the kindest of vargs. He could be cruel and cold and taught her through tough love. But with Horizon, he seemed so much gentler.

A fish dropped to her paws, and this time Shasta reacted more pleasantly to the food offering. Her jaws reached down to eat the fresh meat, thanking the male for his kindness. When she asked for him to share the meal, he remained silent but shook his head no. Perhaps he had eaten something himself before he came and found her. She finished the meal, licking her maw to clean it before asking how he was doing. She was sure that her father, and herself, had had a negative effect on him as Akuji had had on her. The male’s mismatched orbs met her own chocolate brown ones as he spoke. “Emotions were never something I excelled at. I spent so much of my life shunning and ignoring them that I never really learned what most of them felt like or meant. That was what being a servant meant… I was no exception. It’s hard to escape the past when the wolf you served for most of your life is still alive. I’m sorry Shasta” His vocals dropped off as he spoke, but she listened intently and caught all of the words. She was not sure why he was apologizing, he had done nothing wrong. She could not blame him for the terrible upbringing that he had, and she felt bad that she had brought up negative memories. The female was unsure of what to say at first, and took a moment to collect her thoughts, not wanting to say anything to make it worse and wanting to show him that she did care, even if they had just met. She was not sure what it was about him, but she wanted to do everything that she could to make it better.

As Horizon lay down beside her she realized that she had not even stood up when she ate her meal or greeted him. That had been rude of her, but he had not seemed to care luckily. His form was along hers as the pair lay on the ground together. She could feel the heat of his body, and it was almost like electricity. Before Shasta could figure out something to say back to him, she felt the cool touch of his nares at her nape. She stiffened for a moment, not used to such contact, but she already felt comfortable around the male and quickly relaxed, leaning into the touch before he pulled away. Her orbs looked to him, feeling like her pelt was now much colder where he was no longer touching him. She tried to shake the confusing feelings that were overwhelming her, and looked away for a moment to try and not distract herself from him. What was going on with her. Shasta forced vocals from her throat, hoping that would help make her more herself again. ”Um…sorry…I…” The female cleared her throat embarrassed that she was fumbling so much. ”Well, I am not going to pretend that I know what you are feeling, and I know that we have only just met. But if you ever need someone to talk to, I can always lend an ear to listen. Everyone needs a friend in life, right?” Bright orbs looked to him, hoping that he was okay with her offering such a thing. But she hoped that they would become close friends. So far he was one of the kindest beings she had met, and she did not want him to disappear from her life.
