Increasing from the depths of swirling darkness, specks of light twinkled more vigorously than Azalea could imagine.

Out from her mouth came a fear, chirps of misunderstanding. The light came faster than she could imagine, twirling towards her in an overexposed, dangerously dizzy fashion. It was more than the stars within the sky, burning flashes of colors attacked her, hissing threats.

Awkwardly wiggling around, Azalea knew she was under attack. So bright, it brought tears to her pale eyes, only for them to cradle below and soak further underneath her eye socket.

What pushed her to open her eyes? A reflex. What triggered her to close them in defeat? An understanding of such a reflex.

The dark tiny pup had opened her eyes while sitting in sliver of light that rained into the den. Poor Azalea. Turning around, the darkness of browns and blacks cooed to her, she crawled to the loving, supportive warmth. How badly she wanted to snuggle up into the furs of the big warmth.

However, as she pivoted, she came across the other lumps. They were all assortments of dazzling lights. Some were darker, some lighter, some much much larger.

Azalea wanted big warmth. Crying rather loudly, she stumbled to pile into the supportive bundle.

What in the world? Could this small warmth not stop moving? Mintaka let out a weak, puppy growl at the discomfort. Stop stop! She wanted to shout, but the words wouldn’t form.

As her patience wore thin, the sunny female whipped her head around and frowned at the black blob.

Wait. Wait.

Black… blob that looked kinda like herself. What in the world. Her first reaction was to watch and observe, well watch what she could see. It was only a fuzzy picture at the moment. However, the world was still silent. This only irritated the girl more.

However, her second reaction was to test this little black fuzz ball to see if it was edible. Mintaka wormed her way through the pile toward her prey. She was silent like normal. Then the pup flopped upon who sister’s form. Milk teeth diving into her fatty back. To an adult, these teeth would feel like a little pinch, but to a pup… well Azalea’s reaction would tell.

Sorrel was, surprise to no one, sleeping.

She would be a big girl, and that growth was fed in no small part by a rigorous maintenance regimen of eating, sleeping, and burrowing under others for greater warmth.

She was young, but she knew a few things already as gospel:

The pup at the bottom of the pile has the best spot. Milk fills the tummy and keeps you warm at the same time. Ears and toes don’t give you any milk, but they can be fun to suck on anyway.

Today, though, something caught her attention. She heard something, and she had never heard anything before. Sound had always been a thing felt, a rumbling vibration like the steady thrum of a heartbeat in the womb. But this was different. This was a new sensation, a sense she had never used before, and it roused her from her slumber with great curiosity.

Her head lifted, and she blinked open puppy-blue eyes that were bleary and inept, but opened a doorway to a whole world of sensation that had formerly been closed off to her.

Whoa.

Alina had been dozing as these new discoveries were met. Eye closed as a soft breath of content escaped her muzzle. She night of stayed in this stage of contentment, if not for the sounds of her pups waking.

Opwning her single eye, Alina looked towards the balls of fluff who were only growing each day. No longer were they simple jellybeans, but something else, something bigger but still very small.

Sleep still blurred her eye, but not enough that she did not notice a new developement with her children. Blue colored eyes shown in what little light entered the den, and her heart fluttered.

They could see!

Leaning down, Alina lay her head upon the ground, smile spreading acrossher face. “Oh little ones, you are growing so quickly!”

Please wait.

Just stop everything.

This was too much for Aster. There was the familiar wiggling of his sisters. Annoying but familiar. But there was more this time. There was… he couldn’t have known it, but there was sound. Rustling of fur and leaves on the ground and small grunts and whines from his siblings.

Aster’s face crinkled at the sudden rush of noise. It was a lot all at once. And muffled still. Yet here it was, plain as day. Aster could scarcely make sense of it all.

Imagine his surprise then when his eyes forced themselves open for the disruption of his slumber. He was flushed with a very startling sensation! Sight! Though that too would remain nameless for a long while still. Half folded ears slicked back as a surprised squeak made its way from his body. And oh! He could hear it! What a surprise that was!

It was all very bright, and not much made sense. He could decipher small figures that he sounds must have belonged to, and even in the dim light that filtered from overhead, he could only just make out a portion of a large face. A nose and an eye, and at the fringes of his vision there was an ear. He could not understand exactly why, but something within him knew that this looming facade belonged to the one he often spent burrowed against. The food giver.

There was more noises, louder and clearer now. They were placed very precisely, and he could not have known the words, but he found himself smiling contentedly at the sound of his mother’s voice.

As she meandered to safety, something grabbed the fatty flaps of her black fur and shoved them together that all she felt she could do was open her mouth reaaaaaaaaallll wide and…

CHIRP. bEEEEEEP. EEEEEEEEEEEP.

Pushing with her velvety newborn paws, she scrambled to move forward, to roll away, to be taken away. RIGHT NOW, IT WAS HELL ON EARTH.

Agony. Pain. She was dying, her little toes upon each delicate paw wiggled with a furious individuality, but she could not move. The antagonist was…was…just as small, but much much heavier. A pile of dough upon her back, round and roll-able, but just as evil, tearing into her well-being. What had Azalea done for this?!

Beep, she screamed. Beep, beep, beEEEEP.

As her untrained eyes attempted to focus on the bundle of warmth, the loving tender touch was wanted, but all she received was a mushy, feathery sound. It was soft, but not in the way the gentle touch was. 

Then, Azalea realized, as she laid underneath her perpetrator, that she was making that sound. Her mouth held close for a moment, no beeps to come. Then, with a delicacy only known to her, a gentle, curious, under the breath beep occurred.

That…that was her. She did not realize how loud she was. Azalea beeped quieter this time, more softer than before. Gentle, timid beeps, and she liked it. Even if she had a monster snagged on her back.

What in the world was all that yelling about?

Had everything always been this loud?

Surely not. Everything had been quiet and content before and now there was chirping and beeping and the big one was talking and…it was a lot. There was a lot going on.

Eager to get away from the screeching, she edged sideways and attempted to burrow her head under her brother’s belly.

As her tiny teeth sunk deeper into the squishy thing… little droplets of blood seeped out and touched her tongue. The small pup reared her head back and coughed. Ok, not edible. The warm, sweet stuff was much better.

Ahhh! The ear splitting sounds if beeping caused the girl to turn her head in an not pleased manner. Shut up, shut up! She thought as her paws started to tap the back of her sibling.

Either way, Mintaka nuzzled her head back over to the black blob and began to lick to miniscule wound. Would this end her suffering? Sorry sis… no sound came from her chest as she continued to lick.

However, she did turn her ginger head toward another strange sound. The world was not silent anymore… and this bright stuff was starting to hurt her eyes as she blinked her blue eyes, that contrasted with her ginger pelt.

Whoa… this life was apparently more complex than she thought.

It seemed the pups became more active along with their voices. New discoveries required tons of investiagtions, and her pups woukd do just that.

Chirping, beeping and whining, her pups seemed determined to learn more of their voices, and see more of what lay around them.

“Orion? She called, wishing for him to take witness.

Aster grumped and grumbled to himself, silently longing for the quiet to return. He loved his life so far, but sometimes Aster wished to be in that far off place he still very vaguely remembered. A time of silence and sleep and warmth. It was here sometimes still, but times like this reminded him that it wouldn’t ever be completely the same.

At least Aster was comfortable. Or, anyway, not noisy.

Burrowing resolutely, the little girl tried to nestle in as completely beneath the one-pup puppy pile as she could, quite content to say ‘no thanks’ to all this hustle and bustle.

What a mixture of events?

She had been stabbed, and now her aggressor wished to make up for it?

Azalea did not argue. She gave a whisper of a beep in protest, but remained still: blind and deaf to the world.
