With summer in full swing, Chai had been enjoying the coast as much as any inland wolf could manage. It was nice to be around so many pups, around Pace and life and just general contentedness even if she couldn’t feel it in full, herself. Every day felt a little easier, a little more detached, and today was no different. She’d found herself where she often wandered, seated somewhere along the center of the cove’s shoreline, forepaws dipped just far enough on the wet sand that the waves brushed along the tips of them.

It was relaxing, peaceful, and more than she could ask for from any place really, no negative emotions tied to it all.

She’d been distant but was working on getting better, on making more of an effort at meeting new faces, finding herself. Some part of her longed to pick up the chase of her daughter, to seek out the son she’d not seen in just as long, but it all felt either a loss or wholly terrifying.

So today, she was simply a coastal wolf, memories a dull ache as she tried to remain present, whole. There was no pressing need to be sad. Dante was alive, well. With the sun shining so brightly, she could only try her best to do the same.

The little smudge had been playing in the sand near the water and searching for more shells for her collection. She still didn’t have very many and she wanted to have a collection like her mum’s. Even though she knew she should have been off with her mum looking for plants she liked the task of trying to find the prettiest shells to bring home.

In the process though she came across one of those moving rocks and decided to play with it. She batted it with her paw and jumped at it as it moved across the sand. She even set to barking at it when it didn’t do exactly what she wanted to do.

Arashi followed it as it moved down the beach but her attention was eventually pulled from it when she noticed a wolf by the water that she’d never met before. Being the protective pup that she was she stalked over to the stranger with her tail held over her back. She had to make sure no one would hurt her sisters or her mum.

She sniffed at the stranger when she got near, “Why here?” She asked in her best grown up voice as she looked up at the pale coated stranger with her mismatched eyes. “Very close to home,” she stated to let the stranger know she was close to Arashi’s home that she shared with her family.

Chai’s reverie was broken by the sound of an approaching wolf, though it was soon diverted with a gentle smile as she recognized the dark girl as one of the coastal pups born to the Tribe. Not one of Pace’s, she didn’t think, so it must’ve been one of the girls from the other litter. A name she couldn’t recall off the bat.

“Why here?” she returned, not quite sure the answer to the question at first, though she pondered it. And then after a moment, she responded in kind. “I’ve been living here. Do you know Pace? She’s my mate’s sister,” she returned simply, though it would’ve been easier to say she was a part of the Tribe. It felt like she was some days, as much time as they’d spent around the Cove, though still, it wasn’t quite home.

Shed didn’t know if it would ever be.

“This is your home, too, yes?” she asked simply, lowering herself down to ground level to be more in line with the girl, less imposing. “My name is Chai. What’s yours?”

The little smudge was curious about the stranger and why she was so close to her home. She wondered if her mum knew that she was there. That was okay if she didn’t Arashi knew she was there and would make sure she wasn’t going to hurt her family.

The dark pups head tilted slightly as the light colored stranger repeated what she said but went on to explain why she was there. Arashi sat down in the sand when she learned that the woman lived there. Arashi nodded at her question, “Momo’s mum, mate?” She didn’t know this word and brought out more of her curiosity.

She then learned the woman’s name, “Chai,” she repeated trying the word out. She felt she’d done well and smiled before looked up at the woman, “I’m Ashi,” she said still having trouble with her own name.

Chai watched as the girl processed it all, patient as ever. Momo’s mother, yes. That was one of Pace’s kids, she was certain, so she nodded lightly at first, adding an, “Mhmm,” to it for confirmation. There was a bit of a lingering question but Chai felt best not to tackle that just then.

The girl repeated her name, and Chai nodded soundly.

“Nice to meet you, Ashi,” she returned, though she was almost certain she’d been informed of the names around here. Arashi, was it, yeah? She’d let the kid lead the way at any rate. “What’s got you outside today?”

The pale woman confirmed they were talking about Momo’s mother which caused Arashi’s tail to wag behind her. “Momo my friend and I showed her the ocean,” she informed the woman who she learned was Chai. She still hadn’t learned what mate was though, she wondered if she might have to ask her mother. The pup shrugged, “Momo liked the ocean but not the salt.”

“Nice meet you,” she said remembering her manners. Her mother would not be happy if she forgot those especially while talking to an adult. The pup looked back the way she came as Chai asked her another question. “Ashi chase rock but it went away then she was going to find shells but saw Chai.”

The girl seemed keen on her friendship with Momo, which was sweet to hear. It reminded her of her own pups relationship with the Song children, and for a moment, she let herself get lost in memories. But only just that second. She’d gotten rather good at deflecting thoughts these days, and soon her attention was back on Arashi, or as she knew her for now, Ashi.

“Nice to meet you, too,” she returned with a warm smile.

That she’d been chasing a rock seemed off, though, and Chai tilted her head, looking for any lingering stones the girl might’ve been kicking. “What’d the rock look like?” she asked, wondering if it had in fact been some unwitting sea creature out on the sand.

Talking about Momo made the smudge want to visit her friend again but right then she was making a new friend. She seemed a nice lady so Arashi wasn’t worried about her hurting her family any more. The pup liked making new friends but she wondered if the woman knew her mother. That thought was forgotten when Chai spoke again.

Her little tail wagged as she was told it was nice to meet her.

Arashi explained that she had been chasing a rock when she’d seen Chai. The rock had been forgotten in favor order talking to the adult. “It was colorful and had legs like mine,” she said lifting her front paw toward the pale wolf, “But it had more and it was shiny.” A thoughtful look crossed her small black face as she tried to decide if that was everything or not.

Colorful and legs. Chai didn’t need much more to make the connection, though the pup went on about it being shiny.

“Ahhhh,” Chai said at first, trying to sound surprised. “You found a crab. But best to leave them alone. They have claws that will pinch you and never let go. It is no fun.” She’d never messed with crabs but it had been out of knowledge.

She didn’t know if the pup would heed her warning or not, but she at least had tried. “They’re pretty to watch, though!” she added for effect.

She was rather excited about the colorful shiny thing that she had found on the beach though she had some disappointment that it had gotten away from her.  She’d going Chai though and making s new friend was even more exciting to the dark pup.

“Crab?” She repeated having never heard the word or she didn’t remember hearing the word
The smudge wasn’t sure which. “Crab scary,” she said her eyes widening as the woman described about the pinchers. “Ashi not chase no more. She not want get pinched.” She didn’t want to have a crab stuck to her forever.

The pup nodded her head vigorously when Chai said they were pretty to watch. “Crab have lotsa colors. What crab for?” She asked wondering why they were even on the beach if they were mean.

It took the girl a second to process what she was being told, but she seemed to absorb it well enough. Crabs were scary was close enough to the message she’d been trying to instill. The girl didn’t want to get pinched, which was a smart response and Chai nodded.

The conversation diverted to what its purpose was and she glanced outward.

“You can eat them if you’re smart enough about avoiding their claws.” She’d never been particularly keen on most food by the sea, in truth, but she knew wolves could eat the things. “It’s something your mom might teach you one day when you’re older,” she followed with.

Arashi finally concluded that crabs were bad and scary. She hadn’t gotten pinched by the one from earlier and now considered herself very lucky to have gotten away without having that happen. She decided that from now on she would keep her distance since Chai had said they were pretty to watch and she seemed rather excited by that when she said it.

The pup did wonder what they were for if they were so dangerous. Luckily her new friend had an answer for that too.

The pup wagged her tail while Chai explained there they could he eaten but the claws had to be avoided. “What they taste like?” She asked head canting to the side a little. The pup smiled and nodded, “Mum teach Ashi lotsa things.” She would have to ask Yuna to teach her sometime.

What did it taste like, she asked, and Chai gave pause because it’d been quite a while since she’d partaken in crab eating. “Sort of like fish but a little sweeter?” she proposed, not certain the description was quite on point but it hardly mattered.

“Who is your mom?” she asked after a moment, certain it had to be Yuna but who knew these days with the Tribe so overrun by pups. For all she knew there’d been another litter.

Arashi didn’t remember if she’d ever had crab so she didn’t remember what it tasted like. That was what prompted her to ask. Besides if she might eat it one day she wanted to know what she would be getting herself into. She waited worried when the woman paused that maybe she didn’t know either. She thought that was impossible since she was on the beach. Then when Chai spoke her head canted to the side as she thought over the description. “Sounds yummy,” she finally declared.

Maybe she would have to have her mother help her catch one so she could try it too.

Then the woman asked a question that caused the pup to give pause. She always called her mum mum but Arashi was sure this wasn’t what Chai meant. So she thought about all the times she’d heard others talk to her mum. “Yuna,” she finally declared deciding that was the name that was most used when others talked to her mum.

Chai shrugged at the girl’s response. Fish and sea life had never really been her thing, but she supposed to a wolf who’d grown up here, who’d only know mostly seafood, one could develop an appetite for the thing.

“Everyone has their own taste,” she said simply.

They were on to discussion of parents, though, and as expected, this was one of Yuna’s. She smiled down at the girl. “Exploring away from home today, then, yeah? Want to start heading back home?” The last thing she wanted was Yuna worrying over a stray child

In her life she’d had plenty of fish, it was what she mostly ate and she liked it but hearing that the crab was sweeter. It left her wondering what that might be like and made her more eager to try it.

She would have to have a talk with her mother about this so that she could try a crab.

When asked about her mother Arashi quickly shared that she belonged to Yuna. The pup nodded, “Lots to see and do,” she said as her reason for being out and about. The woman did have a point, it was getting late and she didn’t want to get into trouble for being gone too long. “Good idea,” she said as her way of confirming she should head home.
