The world had been quiet lately, at least as far as Saelys was concerned. For a while she’d done the biddings of her parents by not leaving the cave, not wandering when she wasn’t supposed to. But the isolation had taken its toll on the pup, and today she was going to work her escape artist magic to get the heck outta dodge.
It was still very early in the morning, so early that the sun still hadn’t fully risen though it was bleeding its wild colors across the sky already. Saelys might’ve enjoyed the sight had she not been so bitter about being forced inside the blasted cave. That, and she didn’t care much for the bright colors the world could offer. She was more interested in adventure, in something different than the norm. Something requiring her to think about what it was in front of her. She was tired of seeing the cave walls and hearing the sound of rushing water she’d nearly died in once upon a time.
It was all so routine. And she hated being confined to it.
The pup had a better grasp on walking and running now, though she still stumbled every now and then if she wasn’t paying attention. Utilizing these skills she’d been trying to hone where she could, she started trotting off away from the cave. Everybody seemed to be away or asleep, so she managed to skip out on east eden quite successfully. Having been birthed to two genetically large parents, her own form had been growing exponentially compared to other pups. But she did her best to slink away in the grasses unnoticed.
It wasn’t until she reached a foreign river that she stopped and stared at it gritting her teeth. She wouldn’t allow it to make her stop her travels, though. By now the sun was higher in the sky and the natural blue depleted the oranges and pinks that once stained it. She’d follow the river until it was shallow enough for her to cross. Or she’d just go a different direction completely. She’d decide when the time came.
