The girl had woken up early. No surprise there. With her tail waving and blue orbs turning amber peered around the caverns in a curious manner, she began to take her first few steps into an adventure. A true adventure.

This place was huge! Even the small part of the large den was massive to the pup. Oh well, she would figure her way around, then she would show her siblings.

Once she was deeper into the cave system, she let out a “hello?” She had smelled some other scents, but her nose wasn’t good enough to find them. Where were they?

Auberon waddled about the hallways of the caverns this morning. Nothing was able to contain the pup - except for his parents or any other adults watchful eyes - but aside from that, he felt completely free!

However, his ‘freedom’ had also gotten him a bit turned about, and then somewhat lost feeling. Back in the green, grassy place it had been impossible to get lost, the den was always in sight, and the den was only one room, but this place was an uncountable number of rooms! He wouldn’t give up so easily though, he would find his way back to the ‘den’ eventually.

A sound echoed through the hallways that Auberon had not heard before, a little girl voice - like his sister Adhara - except it wasn’t his sister. Who else was here? Had he not met them before? Auberon barked in response and waddled forward at a faster rate. He wasn’t sure where the sound had come from, but hopefully it was from somewhere up ahead.

[Arriving next round, if she can come find him]

Adhara was getting a lot better at this whole “waking up” thing. She was even waking up consistently, every morning, instead of sleeping in while her brothers went about their business having fun and whatever. She really wanted to have fun, too. So she made an effort to wake up earlier. And most mornings it was okay - she’d either wake up the same time as them, or a tiny bit after, or even a tiny bit before. But this morning was not okay.

Because, somehow, she had woken up before everyone. Or rather, what she thought was before everyone. And as she raised her sleepy head, she counted the bodies that she was familiar with. Mama. Dada. Adler. Aubby.

Aubby.

No Aubby.

The girl blinked blearily at the empty space before it registered that he wasn’t there, nor was he anywhere else around the sleeping room. With a sniff, she laboriously rolled onto her belly and rose, toddling out of the den to peer around for him. But he was dark, and it was dark in here, and she wasn’t sure if she’d be able to find him.

“Aubby?” she whispered. And then stepped further out. Whispered his name again.

Gosh darn it. Where was that brother of hers?

With an exasperated sigh, she glanced back at into the den, and then out again. This wouldn’t take long. The cave couldn’t be that big. Could it?

She would just grab him and bring him back.

And as she crept out into the hallway, her ears perked to another voice - an unfamiliar voice, although many unfamiliar voices had begun to fill the cave, this one was particularly distinct. And the fresh smell of her brother carried after it. Adhara huffed, mildly annoyed. Did he think he could just run off and play with strangers without her?!?!? Offended, the girl set off on a march after him.

(she’s a little ways behind auberon)

The ever so active child perked her firming ears at a little bark. Not little… because the cave walls made the voice echo and sound larger than it truly was.

Mintaka blinked and looked ahead. However, she quickly snapped back into reality. The girl let out a short howling noise as she waddled to where she thought the response came from. Of course, it was difficult to pin point, but she could try.

It surely had been more than a few minutes when a black frame, like her sisters appeared in the darker atmosphere.

Then there was another one. However, she appeared more brown like… like a stick. Her lip twinged at the thought of a stick. Mintaka loved sticks. However, the smile soon faded because… The child must have been born with a permanent frown or idle expression.

“Hello” she barked again at the pair. Where they real or were her eyes playing tricks on her? The golden hued pup paused for a moment and slowed her pace. We’re they nice?

Auberon padded forward, a little faster again when a howl echoed about the caves. Who was howling? A new wolf he hadn’t met before at the very least. He wanted to meet them. Auberon wanted to meet everyone. He didn’t hear his sister whispering his name, and so forged ahead.

If Auberon and Adhara blended into the gloom of the caves, Mintaka’s golden tan fur was fairly easy to spot, even for puppy eyes. The girl came into focus and Auberon stared at her for a long moment, even after her hello. She looked to be the same general size and shape of a wolf, one like Auberon. However, she was categorically the wrong color. Auberon had never ever seen a wolf that color. What was wrong with her?

“Hello?” He asked back, cocking his head to the side for a moment, but then feeling like he needed to make sure this was a real wolf. He marched forward towards her confidently, ready to poke her and sniff at her if he could get close enough.

The more she walked and scanned the shadows, the more easily it became for her to distinguish shapes out of them. She soon spotted her brother, but the relief that followed was short lived for the appearance of the owner of the first voice. Adhara fixed on the other young girl down the hallway calling for them.

Compared to the siblings, she was like a ray of golden sunshine bringing light to the darkness of the cavern, the glow of a star in a dim night sky.

Adhara’s heart skipped a little. But it was probably just the whole heart defect thing.

“Who you?” Adhara called bravely, toddling up from behind Auberon.

Ambering eyes scanned the pair. They both seemed to slowly fade into the darkness. Her eyes had problems focussing on their figures so she wouldn’t lose them.

They both seemed rather shocked to see the golden pup. Had she done something wrong already? The thought didn’t really bit her the girl because she didn’t even know their names yet.

Then the boy began to make his way toward her. What was he doing? She stared at him for a moment until the other girl asked a question.

“Mint… aka” she said. Why did her sound have to be so difficult to say? However, Mintaka was determined to get her title out, so she exhorted more than enough energy to reply to the girl’s question.

“Who you?” She asked the girl. Then the child turned back to the boy. She put her head out ready to either fight or sniff.

Auberon was most of the way towards the strange pup when his sister spoke from just behind him and he stopped to look back at her. He didn’t realize she had even been following. He gave his sister a happy smile but stayed in front of her. Auberon would protect her from this too-bright pup.

He pressed forward now, coming within sniffing range as the girl responded and gave them her name, then asked for theirs in return. The dark pup didn’t answer right at first, instead he stuck his nose out just a few inches from the other pup and sniffed at her. She smelled alright he supposed. She smelled like his sisters and parents, like the caves themselves.

“I’m Aubewon,” he replied. His serious expression turned into a bit of a smile at her. Where had she come from however? Auberon didn’t understand how any other little wolves could exist aside from his siblings. No one was even here to explain things to him.

Together, she and her brother advanced on the stranger. Adhara’s big, blue eyes were greedy to take her in, distinguishing her from the darkness as she marveled at the lightness of her fur. It wasn’t that much lighter than Adler’s, to be honest, but it had this golden tinge to it that Adhara couldn’t comprehend. It wasn’t a colour she’d seen on her or her parents. She said her name was Mint-ak-ah.

She held close behind Auberon as he sniffed at the girl. Adhara craned her neck as though she was trying to stretch over him and sniffed as well. She did have a bit of a stink to her. She lacked the smell of parents - Adhara’s parents - but Adhara found a different smell in its place. Everything about her was just so… strange.

“Adarwa,” she tacked on immediately after her brother. Yep. That sure was her name. And a good name it was.

“Wey from? This ours,” she informed the girl. Not that she wasn’t allowed. Adhara just wanted to let her know that this was, you know, our cave. Because they lived there, and she clearly didn’t.

Mintaka had guessed correctly. The boy came in and began to sniff her. His name was Auberwon… something like that. The stranger then smiled at her and she was taken aback. Why was he doing that? Was something wrong with him?

As the golden girl leaned in as well to sniff the two, she ran her head to the side and touched noses with the boy. A look of shock took over her features. He had a little wet nose like her, but it felt different.

After a moment of pause, the pup pulled away and pulled her ears back slightly. Not in a threatening way, but more in an embarrassed manner. Was she doing this correctly?

Then the other girl gave her name. Mintaka took in her scent, but did not touch noses… afraid it was wrong now. They both smelt very similar, but very different from what she was used to. The child would have let it slide if it weren’t for the brown girl’s next words.

“Out dere…” She said moving her head to where ever the entrance would be. Honestly, Mintaka lost track of where she came from.

“Nuh… not yers” she stated. “Ours” she finally said. Mintaka wasn’t entirely selfish. But if they were all here, then it couldn’t be just one of theirs. Right? Or was this large den pulled by this little girl who Mintaka could probably whoop for the throne?

It didn’t take long for the timber wolf to notice the absence of two of his pups. Their voices echoed, though, so they hadn’t left the cave. With a faint grunt, he rose to his paws, made a stretch, and headed out. He followed their scents. They were still fresh.

Rathbone dragged his paws across the stone floor. He still wasn’t… happy. Just tired. All the time. The urge to hunt was fleeting, even though he needed to do more now. It was really only him and Murphy hunting. But… but he seemed to be doing alright. He just didn’t want to do anything. Be alone.

He almost stumbled as his mind drifted.

The wolf wasn’t even sure why he was following after the kids. He doubted they were in any trouble. If they were, they wouldn’t listen to him, anyway. He should have just woken Leas and stayed to watch Adler. But no, he was trudging down the hallway to keep an eye on them.

It wasn’t long until his crystal blue eyes found the two. And a third. Not his. Alina’s girl. He couldn’t remember her name. Or if he had even asked for it. Oh well. He didn’t feel the need to announce his presence. His paw steps were loud enough. Rathbone was coming to check on them. And then keep an eye on them. Puppysit and contemplate what the hell he should be doing with his life.

Auberon’s tail wagged back and forth at the new, golden, little wolf. He was glad his sister was right beside him too. He’d keep her safe and protected while they sniffed at this stranger. The other little girl booped her nose against Auberon’s and the dark pup giggled at the contact. He pranced excitedly on his toes a few times and then pressed closer, trying to snuffle at the fur on her cheek affectionately. Auberon liked his siblings, and he decided he liked this little girl too.

Adhara introduced herself as well and proceeded to lay claim to the caverns as theirs, which the new wolf seemed to object to. “Ours,” Auberon agreed on accident - his families, but maybe Mintaka could count too. “Our cave’n” he repeated the word his Ma and Da had called this big new den.

Speaking of his Da, he looked up at the sound of heavy footsteps and immediately smiled at his father. “Da! Look, Minta’,” he said excitedly, tossing his nose towards the new girl by way of introducing them. Auberon reached out to try to nuzzle at Adhara, and then turned to nuzzle at Mintaka as well.

Adhara stared attentively at the other girl, observing the way she leaned forward and booped her brother’s nose. She was too far away to do that, though. And the other girl didn’t really try hard, which was for the better, because Adhara didn’t want to make the effort to bridge that gap anyway.

She replied that they came from out there, then looked - and saw only more cavern walls. That didn’t make sense. Did she mean outside? That made more sense. So did they. But they were here first. Besides, Auberon even agreed with her.

Adhara assumed that logic was inarguable, but then Mint-aka had the gall to correct her. Not yours - by yours, she meant Adhara’s. Ours. What. That was totally wrong.

“Um, no.”

Her eyelids lowered with dismay at the answer, while her eyebrows arched high into her forehead, incredulous. The overall look was something sarcastic and deadpan all at once. Until her ear twitched, and she heard pawsteps leading a massive body her way. She recognized the footfalls. Here came their father, just in time to prove her right.

Adhara watched, fearlessly bemused, as her brother nuzzled her and then tried to nuzzle Mint-aka. She remained where she was while she waited for their father to get closer. “Ours. But you can s’ay,” she offered Mint-aka diplomatically.

Mintaka waged her tail as the boy nuzzled her. He remained her of mother. The golden child loved mother very much. Therefore, she loved this pup. It made sense to her.

When the boy nuzzled her, she returned the gesture with an affectionate lick to his muzzle. Mintaka didn’t care much for what others thought of her. Licking was her way if affection and saying: I like you.

However, the brown girl made a face that was rather ugly. Mintaka screwed her face up as well. No… it was not just hers or whoever this group of wolves were… it was theirs… ours.

“Nuh… ours…” She said brows knitted. Since the bright girl already had an idle glaring face… Her turning it into an angry and upset one was more horrifying to behold.

Who did she think she was? Look at her! She was the size if a pebble compared to… a large… much larger wolf approached. The boy said Da. Was this Da?

“Da?” She asked tilting her head. “Yu da?” She asked wiggling her nose at the tan guy.

Auberon was the first to notice him. He announced his presence, at least. A ghost of a smile appeared and there was a soft twinkle his crystal blue eyes.

“Minta?” he said. Was that the girl’s name?

Minta looked like she was glaring at Adhara. He felt no need to interfere. Unless the glaring led to something more. He thought she was a rather strange pup. Aggressive. An unfortunate trait, especially for one so young.

Rathbone had no idea how his children would interact with others, but they seemed to be handling this exchange well. From what he could see, at least. A yawn escaped him.

“Yeah, I’m Da,” he said. Easier than saying “Rathbone”, he figured.

He padded over to give Auberon and Adhara a lick on their heads. “Good morning,” he said to them.

The two girls seemed to watch to argue over exactly what ‘ours’ meant and who that meant it belonged to. Auberon didn’t have any time for that! Both the brown and the golden girls seemed a fair bit on the bossy side and it didn’t seem clear that either of them would give up anytime soon.

“Ad’ara and Minta’ wanna pway?” He asked the pair of girls invitingly. His little tail wagged back and forth and he gave them both an open-mouthed excited look. What game could they play? Chase? Chew on rocks? Chew on Da? That last one was a bit favorite in Auberon’s mind, and Da was so conveniently nearby.

The little boy was surprised to find that she did not know Da’s name. “Yeah, Da!” He replied again in case she hadn’t gotten it. He was just Da, duh. “Goo’ mawning,” he replied to his father and then waddled towards the big timber wolf, intent on finding some game they could play. Maybe Da could go find something for them to smell or chew on, wouldn’t that be great!
