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’.


Never Forget Who You Are


As the mated pair began discussing the ocean, Grey Wind was not thinking of the actual logistics of whether he could or could not protect Macaria. No pair spent every waking moment together, and Grey Wind and Macaria spent less time together than most. But whenever he was with her, he would protect her should the need arise. She was by no means a damsel in distress that could not take of herself, but that didn’t mean that he wouldn’t be there for her should anything ever threaten her. When the female smiled at him, he could tell she did not mean it and that she didn’t believe his words. Not that she didn’t think that he would protect her, but that it wasn’t realistic for him to always be able to. If he was around, he wouldn’t let anything in this world harm her, not after how important she had become to him. But their conversation changed directions as he pulled her down to the ground with him to groom and caress her pelt.

Their conversation went to what they had been up to, and how even though the lands around them had changed, nothing too exciting had happened to either of them. He was glad to hear that she had not been with another recently. Even if it was only short lived, he would take it for now. Macaria’s reply caught the male off guard as her orange gaze stared into his yellow one. "Like… A three some? Only I end up eating the third after we all have had our fun?" He wasn’t sure if she was joking or not, but he thought that if he seemed on board then she would jump at the chance. They agreed to keep no secrets from each other, and so the femme had told him all about what her unique tastes were and how she had come to find them. But it was not something that he could share in. Grey Wind still wasn’t sure if he could stand the site of seeing her actually consume another lupine. Sharing her was not something that he liked to do, if he had his way he would have her all to himself. But since it was a part of their relationship, would it be better if he was there to witness it? His brow furrowed as his thoughts jumbled around, unsure of what he would feel if he agreed to do such a thing. He didn’t have to give an answer though as Macaria grinned and began to giggle, a sound that did not often leave the femme, and his brow raised at her. Her tongue reached up to caress his ear, and he purred as the pair leaned into the touch of each other. If she was serious, it was something he would consider for her, really he would consider anything in the world for her. But for now, the thought left his head as he focused on the time with her.

Macaria’s form pulled away from him, and he let out a grumble but when she turned her form to face her, he looked at her questioning what she was going to say. As she nipped and licked at his throat, his grumble turned to another purr as the male leaned into her touch, feeling as if he could never get enough of her even if they spent every moment together. Grey Wind was surprised by her words, and at first all he could do was stare at her, the words needing time to process in his head. When he was young, before he came to Blossom, he knew he would have pups. He needed to continue his family’s lineage as rulers of their pack. It was not a choice of if he wanted pups or not, it was expected, required. He had been neutral about the thought, more concerned about who he would have these pups with rather than the pups themselves. But when his family had been destroyed all those responsibilities had been destroyed to. He could be with whoever he wanted, he didn’t have to have pups if he didn’t want to. But did he want to? When he had seen Macaria change into the femme she was now, he hadn’t thought that pups was something she would want. But that clearly had been an unfair assumption, as she did want them.

But as Grey Wind’s yellow gaze stared at Macaria, he could see them having pups together. He loved her, how could he not want to show that love to the world by having a family with her. But something she said bothered him. No matter what their young would be like, he could not leave them. If he was to make a family, each and every pup would be special and important, even if one was not completely healthy. Would her cannibalistic side come out if there was a weak pup? What would happen to them then if he didn’t let her…indulge…in a want like that. Finally the brute spoke, ”I never knew pups was something you wanted. But I have always wanted to make a family, so I would love to.” The brute paused, not wanting to spoil the moment of when the pair agreed to start a family. He crawled closer to her, keeping them breast to breast but his cranium rubbing along her nape as he licked at her neck before pulling away. ”But, if we have pups, I can’t abandon any of them. Even if one is not entirely healthy. Once they’re conceived they will be family. And I will protect them from this world.” His gaze watched for her reaction, hoping that she would not change her mind because of it. As much as Grey Wind loved Macaria, he knew that that love would be different from the love of being a father to future pups. And his father's morals had been engraved deep within him, and he knew that he would not let anything bad happen to any family he were to have. Every parent hoped that their young would be perfectly healthy, but that did not always happen. And he couldn't assume that two healthy parents would conceive healthy pups, and he didn't want that to be a cause for Macaria and himself to fight in the future. But now that the idea was in his head, he desperately wanted to make a family with her.
