Where once the southern border of Blossom Forest was made by Leisure Lake, the magical rearrangement of the lands has laid there instead a vast, uncrossable ocean. The shore differs as you travel along it. Tall mountainous cliffs arise on the western part and at one point, the large river that runs through Blossom Forest opens up at its tributary into a well sheltered cove. As you come more eastward, the towering peaks shorten into rocky foothills. A large section of the shore is inaccessible to most, as Uyaraut has claimed it as their own. But if you skirt around their territory, the hills disappear, swallowed up into the land until it is as flat as the eye can see. The vibrant greens dull into short and dry browns and tans, and the land dries and cracks apart until it melds into The Waste - the desert that forms Blossom Forestís easternmost border.

For those looking to hunt here, there are of course the fish within the ocean, along with crabs, seals and urchins. For on the shore, there are seagulls, herons, and ospreys.


i'll watch over you

i'll be your protector
Soft glacial pools watched as soot colored paws imitated the motions of his own snowy forepaws as he sliced through the fish. The soft entrails got caught on his claw as it slid down the body cavity, but as he pulled out the flaps of skin contained the mess. Tiresias repeated the motion and Castiel watched curiously before plopping the fish down before him. Castiel knew that blindness was considered a limitation by most wolves, it incapacitated them in ways they could not imagine, because without sight how were they supposed to get around? But when he looked at Tiresias he did not think of Tiresias as handicapped. The other teen got around just as well as he did on the beach, and before Cas had arrived Tiresias had been hunting and exploring all on his own. Tiresias didnít need Cas, but life was easier together. Living as a loner was something that Castiel had become accustomed to early on and in the little time he had spent on this earth. After leaving his bothers in Aurora Borealis to chase after his mother and father, he hopped from one place to another, living on the charity of other wolves he passed by and eventually the bare minimum hunting skills he acquired in his travels. Merlo and he had survived in their earliest teen years together because of the warmth they supplied and together they were able to catch more prey, ample for their growing bodies. And now it was Castiel and Tiresias.

For it seemed fate that they come back together.

Castiel had felt it the day he had returned, that sudden blossoming warmth in his chest. Unlike anything he had ever felt before, for it was not love. Not then at least. In those wintery days and months to pass Castiel felt more complete and whole when at Tiresiasí side, and when the kalak had gone out exploring it was as if a piece of him wandered off with him. It was not a terrible feeling, but Cas always had an inkling of a feeling as to where he might be, how far it was, how fast could he run if Tiresias was to get into trouble. These calculated judgments always crossed his mind before he could rest at ease and go about his own day, not that Tiresias was ever around to witness this routine. It only happened when he left, and after awhile it became so normal to Cas that he assume it had to do with his transformation. The magic that had flooded his veins and reincarnated him as a Tempest. How else could he explain the sudden connection to Reece? Cas didnít believe in love at first sight anyhow, he could hardly accept that love still existed in this world, for it had ripped away his only lover. Tears slowly brimmed up on his lids and Castiel, turned his head trying to hide while he blinked them away, and yet one still trickled down his cheek. His paw smeared it into his fur and he sucked in a breath to calm himself.

The young Tempest tried to let the warmth consume his body, but it wasnít until he felt the soft trickle of Tiresiasí fur against his. I must say, Cas, I am rather glad that winter is no more. I simply am not made for such temperatures. The soft pressure of Tiresias against him grew as the others head came to rest on his own. That warmth in his chest flared up, engulfing that cold hearth at his heartís door and melted it away. A soft rumble started in his chest, but he caught himself and turned it into a soft chuckle to save face. I suppose I should thank you not for my survival, but for the comfort allotted by your warmth and companyÖ Casí ears perked at Reeceís words, wondering if he really meant it. Somewhere Cas had started to feel a heat that accompanied Reeceís touch and much to his denial there had only been one other time that this had happened to him in life. He knew exactly what it had turned into, but now was not a good time for that! As much as Castiel knew himself to be gay, he couldnít make the same assumption of TiresiasÖ that could be ruinous to the life that they had built together. He didnít want to lose the one friend he had found here, because unlike Tiresias, Castiel had never wondered from the beach or far from their den for that matter. He could not bring himself to do it. For a slew of reasons, Tiresias being one of them. Castiel didnít want to stray far from him in case something bad was to happen and he needed to rush to his aid. And then there was the fact that Castiel did not want to run the chance of stumbling into his brother, Vladimir.

Do not thank me Tiresias, you were just as much of a help to me as I was for you. Let it be a fair trade for the two of us to have shared this den and kept away the wintery chill. Castiel felt himself teetering on a ledge of whether or not ask what he dreaded to hear the answer to. Now that Spring had returned and kissed the earth with warmth, would Tiresias want him to move elsewhere? Cas was not needed anymore for warmth, there was only his company and the ease of access to food that he provided. He pushed away the thought and let it settle uneasily in his stomach, hoping that Tiresias wanted him around, as a constant companion. Anyhow itís much easier to live with another and be able to rely on them. Castiel smiled lazily, absentmindedly nuzzling in closer to Tiresias. His short cropped fur somehow silky soft against Casí lusciously fluffy coat that he had inherited from his father. A rumbling purr vibrated through Castiel, before he coughed realizing the way he was acting. Sorry, he mumbled under his breath. His body shifted, slightly pulling away from Tiresias, Um, well maybe we could go out and explore together today? Since itís such a nice day outside and everything. Castiel suddenly felt like the walls were coming in on him and he had to get out. Limbs stretched out and he rose up from the ground as he shook the dust and salt layer off his pelt. His nose pressed to Tiresias, Tag! Youíre it Tiresias! Castiel leapt out of the mouth of the cave, laughter echoing behind him. He stopped only briefly to see if Reece was coming after him, Catch me if you can!

i'll be your guardian angel
