Heavy and crashing, her eyelids slid sleepily over her pale eyes. The sun was warmth and it sat on her dark fur like bark on a tree. The moment was cozy and lovable, but something was missing.

Her mother had not returned.

She felt a hole in her time in the dark cave. Each step into exploring was only a setback, it was only an unanswered dark corner or spike staring blandly at her. It was not warm, it was not safe, it did not look at her with a love she could not understand.

Cold.

Empty.

And with the hot flashes of a dying sun and another dying day, warmth and love had not returned to her. She had not licked her head, she had not said her name, she had not spoken her siblings names, she had not answered.

What was her name?

Where were her siblings?

Who were these strangers?

Azalea did not want to fight, or even put up a fight.

With her rump pressed into the cave floor, she blinked slowly as the setting sun left her vision darker than it had before, colder than it had before.

Sorrel had been plenty ready to stay hiding out in the den, but the warm-lady with the dark fur didn’t seem to think that was a good idea. And so, disappointed and still very confused as to what was happening, the gray-ish pup had returned to the caverns that she still was not positive were not either terribly cursed or perhaps sentient.

Maybe they had eaten their mother.

Maybe she needed to explore them more fully, just to be sure.

“Zayla?” She stopped, almost startled to see her dark sister here, but pleased; it was always good to remember that there was more than one friendly face among her siblings. “Okay?”

Mintaka was already coming up with an idea. The scent of mother was fading quick… She wasn’t returning. Therefore, the golden girl decided she would go out and look for her.

The pup wanted to tell her siblings, first, though. One was just down the hallway. “Aza…” She called out. “Need talk” she said. Her grumpy face was already set as she trecked through the dark caves.

Simply keeping track of where ten pups were at any given time was a lot more work than Leas could have ever possibly imagined, particularly when only three of the pups were her own. However, she was determined. None of these pups were going to get hurt, or go missing, or have anything else bad happen to them no matter what Leas had to do.

Leas knew the sun was getting close to setting and that required a daily rounding up of babies for a final count before she tried to get them all to sleep. Currently, there were pups in the doorway! And pups were not supposed to be there.

She trotted towards the three girls quickly. She knew their names but their personalities were still all new to her. “Girls, darlings, what are you doing over here?” She spoke to them sweetly, a little worry in her voice that had seemed to leave since the meeting outside the caverns.

“Are you all hungry, or tired?” Food a warm spot to sleep seemed the best way to coax them back into a safer part of the caves. They were not ready to be out in the forest on their own, and Leas was not ready to try to take them out together. She knew they wanted their mother, but if Alina was coming back or not, there was nothing her children could do.

Once the fading sun dipped below Azalea’s weak gaze, her pouted face turned to her sisters, Sorrel and Mintaka.

“Ma.” But who was Ma? And who was Kin? And who was Dad? And who were all these fresh scents who were already fermented into the breath of the cave?

Then came the other wolf. To little Azalea, ready to wilt at any second, Leas was a giant, large and towering. She spoke, but Azalea struggled to understand.

A piece of hurt, but the hurt was all over. It made her want to sit here and stay. Sit and stay. She had been that way when the clenching feeling didn’t take over.

Pale eyes fixated on the floor, only skirting upwards every now and then in hesitation.

“Ma gone,” Sorrel said, sorrowfully. She had been through this herself, and she felt for her sister now grappling with the same thing.

She didn’t understand where Ma was, or why, or how. But she was not present.

“Nice lady take care, now.” She twisted her head around to look at Leas. “Go eat.”

Nice lady wasn’t Ma.

But they had no Ma, now. That was just the way it had to be, she guessed.

Mintaka perked her ears as the brown woman came. She was offering food again. The golden girl let out an irritated growl as she backed away and her pelt fluffed up.

No… She didnt want her. She wanted mother. However… Her growling belly begged to differ. Good thing the child was to stubborn to give in.

Mintaka had less energy everyday because her lack of eating… But she was doing it to herself. There was a nice lady trying to help but mintaka didnt want to let mother go.

The child backed away a few feet. No… Go away. The girl wanted to get out of here. The child couldnt understand why such a loving mother… Her gave her a loving nickname would leave… And sorrel seemed to be fine with it which mintaka despised.

Leas finished her loop around the trio of sisters, putting herself on their far side, between the pups and the exit. She didn’t want them going anywhere, not now, and not for the foreseeable future. She was sure they were upset and confused, but she had already had to bring Sorrel and Mintaka back from their den in the forest and Leas didn’t want helpless pups scattered about outside.

Azalea struck Leas as unsure of what she wanted. Leas could only hope she had made some progress on befriending the girl at their previous meeting by the herb cache. The little black pup seemed like she wanted to be friendly, but just didn’t know what to do.

Leas thought Sorrel had the most firm grip on what had actually happened. Perhaps she said it a little too bluntly for her sisters, but the gray girl made her smile when she was called ‘nice’. This was another step towards convincing the siblings everything would be okay, that they would be cared for. At the mention of ‘eat’ Leas plopped back into a sit and then relaxed into a more reclined position. “Come here Azalea, baby, everything’s okay,” she coaxed at the girl gently, motioning with a paw. “You too Sorrel.”

Mintaka apparently would be the harder nut to crack. She growled, fluffed herself, and backed away. At first Leas was completely shocked that the pup seemed to hate her so much. Leas was the one trying to feed them, keep them warm at night, make sure they were safe and protected now. However, perhaps it was just too confusing for the small pups? What would Adhara, Adler, and Auberon have done if Leas had left?

Leas softened her expression and dropped her head a little lower. “Shhhh, it’s okay,” she cooed at the more stubborn sister. “I know it’s confusing, but I’ll take care of you, it’ll be okay.”

Auberon was getting ready for his bedtime, but not before he got his evening meal. He had arranged himself very nicely back in their little corner den. He had been happy and warm, all curled up waiting for Ma to arrive with a meal, but she had not arrived, and Auberon had grown impatient.

The dark pup set out to find his food - and mother - and had quite a frown by the time he reached the entrance. What was she doing all the way up here? Auberon knew all of the other pups that were standing around as well! His mood was turning around a bit to find many of his friends and his mother all neatly arranged together.

“Minta, Sowwel, Azahla,” he chirped, moving up towards them all as well. He tried to give each girl a little nuzzle and lick as he passed by, but his Ma was arranged ahead of him for mealtime, and Auberon was hungry. “Dinna time,” he told the other pups as if they were all crazy that they weren’t eating already and Auberon continued forward towards his mother, burrowing in at her belly and beginning to suckle.

Her brows furrowed in thought.

Eat.

Food.

Nice lady.

Eat the Nice Lady™.

The Nice Lady cooed and coaxed Azalea to eat, and as she shyly scuttled over, she kept her pale eyes on the ground, not necessarily focused on anything except the foreign gnawing within her stomach.

Then, Auberon came and licked her, and it caused her to stop moving and instead let the boy in front of her. She wouldn’t fight him over Nice Lady, but instead she found her place and her nipple. It took her a bit to get used to it, the difference and the change.

This was a strange life she had found, but Sorrel was beginning to recognize the rhythm of it. Children were nothing if not adaptable, and she followed her sister to Leas’s side, nosing her face into the soft under-fur of her belly, seeking the temporary satisfaction to one type of hunger.

The other hunger, the deeper gnawing, would not be so easily satisfied. But perhaps it could be fed with time.

((fade sorrel))

Just then… Auberon came around the corner and Mintaka’s stomach knotted. She just pushed it aside and supposed she was hungry. However… Her stubbornness was not going to allow her to eat from this stranger.

Amber orbs stared at her friend as he came by to nudge and lick her. However… Her joy was soon taken away as he moved on to her sisters.

Wiggling her nose… The golden child watched as they all went to the belly and fed. It was a strange sight. Mintaka wanted to run away and go hide. This isnt how she wanted life to be.

However… The girl just scooted closer to the cold wall and attempted to morph into it. She liked cold things… They understood her. Warm things didnt… Those were for her sisters. She didnt belong to the light.

Instead of being one of the girls, it was her own son who showed up and promptly helped himself to a drink of milk. She smiled at Auberon as he approached, and noted how sweetly he greeted the little girls. Though, Leas wasn’t sure what to make of him offering her as dinner to the others - of course, she had been trying to feed them, but had her son realized that as well?

She ruffled the fur between Auberon’s ears as he settled in to a spot. It was the start of two more pups joining her for their meals as well. As she had expected Azalea and Sorrel were won over and both came to nurse.

Leas nuzzled each pup, tucking them gently in where necessary. Two little black pups, and then the gray girl. She was used to nursing three pups, and it felt familiar and comforting even if two of the three were new to her.

Mintaka however was not so easily convinced. Leas busied herself for a moment with licking at the three pups, grooming them softly while she considered what to do or say about the little golden pup. Once they had nursed Leas intended to take everyone back to the den-corner for sleep, and she wished that Mintaka would have been convinced to nurse as well.

“Mintaka, why don’t you come closer so you’re warm? You can snuggle next to Sorrel,” Leas patted the spot gently with her paw but didn’t otherwise move, not wanting to disturb the other happily nursing pups.

Auberon nursed happily, perfectly content and pleased to be filling his belly. He was even more pleased when more little bodies snuggled up next to him and he could settle into the regular mealtime routine.

He was aware that it was different pups next to him than there normally were. It had always been Adhara and Adler before, but now it was Sorrel and Azalea. Were they sisters too? Just sisters he’d only met recently? That was alright he supposed, he’d share.

Ma nuzzled at him and Auberon made a little pleased hum in return, but he wasn’t about to let go of a teat to make any real reply. But…..then he heard ma saying his best friends name, and that was worth something to him. He reluctantly pulled his mouth away, his muzzle damp and white from milk.

“Minta come closer,” he repeated after his mother, giving a little motion with his head so she’d come be near him.

In the moment of filling her stomach, Azalea recognized the calling of her sister: Mintaka.

Worried, she turned her head and blinked with an increased amount confusion bubbling along her furrowed eyebrows at her golden sister. She should step out and reach for her sister, but if she left would she be let back in? Where there other nice ladies to choose from?

The golden child folded her ears back as her sisters willing went forward. It was disgusting. What would they do if mother came and saw them?

Mintaka still wasn’t believing her loving and caring mother had abandoned her. After all the fun they had, and snuggling… surely she would be back.

Then her name was called… it was almost a plead. The welcoming voice belonged to Auberon. He wanted the girl to come closer.

The stubborn child wanted to, but don’t because Auberon was there and he asked her to. However, she ultimately shook her head and knitted her brows together.

No words were exchanged because Mintaka didn’t even want to say anything anymore.

She pondered the thought if just walking away. Being her independent self, Mintaka ultimately rose and began turning to walk away.
