Dierks had stayed by the shore longer than anticipated.

The rescue, and subsequent observation, of the white lad was an unexpected series of events. And the heavens had told him his task here was not complete and so he had not strayed. The beast was sucking every drop of adventure these peaks had to offer. While he was never a man for permanence he found the worth in keeping his head dry. After his awkward and rather uncharacteristic send-off to the pup who had no name, Dierks had lingered within sight distance of the den. The rain had kept him relatively hidden but there was no attempt to play hide-and-seek with his presence. The makeshift den he had discovered may have once been inhabited by predators larger than he, the fear that came along with that realization was shallow.

He adored nature and would have no qualms in perishing in her grasp.

This brisk dusk the white man was coming home a champion. As much as carrying the carcass of a father hare could make any wolf a war hero. He delighted in the metallic smell that smeared over his coal freckles. It had been some time he felt powerful. The insecurity that bore cracks into his soul were at this point filled. The fabric of that confidence may have been flimsy, but Dierks never paid it much mind. He didn’t tend to dwell on the negative.

Blood-stained teeth would gingerly lay the hare on the rocks outside of his camp, stretching it across as if it were thanking the heavens itself. He would follow suit. A mirror image. His eyelids drooped, nostrils flared and a deep breath filled his lungs. A small meditation was needed before consumption. A lone splash echoed against the stacked boulders. He felt at peace.

It was getting late, but Jean had forgotten to make her daily run for food and herbs. Since Scott was near by, she needed more food.

Her steps were light and graceful as she treked through the mountains. Then a sudden, unfamiliar scent flooded her nostrils. Then over an incline, golden orbs spotted a wolf with a hare… near the rocks.

Well, he was new. Might as well and make friends and see if he was friend or foe.

Leaping from rock to rock, Jean made her way down until she was a few meters away from the male. “Hello” she said simply with a gentle smile. Why was he here?

The splashing of idle lake-dwellers would not be the only company the beast would have tonight. As it were, the sounds of pads on rocks caused his ears to perk ever so slightly. Golden gaze remained cover as to not totally give away his prediction of incoming company. The steps were light. He was busy guessing the details of who they belonged to when it was spoiled by their own voice.

Dierks made a show of responding. Shoulders would push down in a stretch, leisure masking his hesitation. One eye would pop open, then the other and he was met with a vision of cocoa. It had been some time since feminine chords had laced his ears and it felt, strange.

“Hello,” cordial but distant. Large head would tilt somewhat, eyebrows only ever slightly pushed in, in thought. Having little interest in other’s affairs, Dierks couldn’t quite speculate exactly what drew the female over to him. The metallic taste on his lips gave him an inkling.

“Would you like some?” He gestured lackadaisically to the large hare. He was not burdened by the fear of giving away food. The tracking of the flighty animal wasn’t too difficult, it was slain right outside of its home and he knew where more sleeping bodies lay if need be. It was blasphemy not to at least ask to share.

Jean gave a nod as she looked the new comer over. He didnt really smell of other wolves. Therefore the girl concluded he was a rogue like herself.

What caused her to perk her ears was his offer. Golden orbs peered down at his catch. Shaking her head “no thank you… But thanks for the gesture” she said in her southern accent.

“What brings you around here?” she asked tilting her head. “Dont recall meeting you first time i came here” she noted aloud.

The dame refused his offer and thus he could dine without fear of heavenly retribution. Dierks was still perplexed as to her intentions. He paid no mind to his confusion, however, and gently pulled the hare toward him. Just because he had a guest didn’t mean he couldn’t begin dinner. Tendons pulled and broke with little effort from the beast’s powerful jaws. He had just swallowed his first bite when it appeared that the strange accented woman was continuing their conversation past pleasantries.

What did bring him around here? After what happened back north…these last few months his brain had switched to survival mode. Track, hunt, sleep and repeat. It was a small epiphany that his interaction with the little lad was the first one to pull him out of his own mind. “I hail from mountains like these” Dierks thought out loud as salmon tongue swept the lingering muscle tissue from his lips. “You find water, you find life.” He wasn’t attempting to philosophize, what he had stated was just simple fact. He didn’t maintain himself so well as a rogue without understanding life’s rules.

“I suppose not…I arrived just one moon ago.” He held back about his escapade as a search and rescue officer. ”...first came here” Dierks perked in interest at the implication. If she made residence here, she may have more information of who the small, white lad had belonged to and whether or not he had any earthly retribution to fear. “Do you, reside here?”

He heard… voices.

Not his parents. Not Rook. Not Kamaal or Fray or Skuld or Tamaska.

But he knew one of them. Or so he realized as he drew closer. He hadn’t been able to make out anything they said, but he’d heard them and now he was approaching, his hackles rising in unexpected vitriol to a wolf he had only met once.

Then again, was it really a surprise? They hadn’t parted on the best of terms. And he didn’t trust her.

“Hey, what are you doing here?” he barked as he drew within sight of them both. He didn’t know the bigger male, either, but if he was with the female as far as he was concerned they were both guilty of unwanted trespass.

Now jean had to chuckle at that. You find water.. You find life. For her… Literally.. As she thought about Wight.

“I do indeed… Just over…” she paused as her ears turned back at an unwelcome voice. It was the yearling who accused her if wanting pity.

“You gotta be jokin” she sighed. Though jean was normally kind and liked everyone… This kid was rude and judged others to quickly. A trait jean wasnt a fan of.

The gods were testing him. A heavy intake of air puffed the man’s broad chest as if the clear mountain air could give him more patience. The feeling seemed mutual among all company involved.

If the beast was more socially inclined he may have been able to pick up on the spark of energy ignited between his two new cohorts. In this reality, he simply rose to his feet and shook his coat free of debris. The black-coated yearling had the confidence of a group in his accusatory tone. As far as his nose had lead him to believe, and he had quite the stock in his sense of smell, an organized group had not lay claims to these lands. There were smells, sure-just as the cocoa girl had said, wolves did indeed rest their heads here-but packs Dierks was sure to stay clear of.

He hoped this was not the first mistake to be made since the bear incident of months past.

Not one for deceit, Dierks answered the man quickly (but not rushed). “Resting, eating.” It was pleasant when the situation was as clear cut as he needed it to be. While the man was washed in experience from braving nature solo, and wrapped in a thick coat that could take more than a few punches, his religion was largely nonviolent. His pacifist nature was slightly tugging him away from this confrontation. A loophole existed though, and came in the form of the chocolate woman standing next to him. The heavens above would be rightfully enraged if he were to leave her here to be harmed. And so he stood rigid.

“Well, I know you two aren’t friends ‘cause she doesn’t even know what friends are,” Faolan rattled off, annoyed by the way the she-wolf he still didn’t know the name of reacted to his approach.

He stopped at a rigid-legged halt many paces from them, feeling strangely confident for a boy who had never warded anyone off of the family turf before. “She’s not welcome,” he said, jerking his nose at the one who offended him, but looking at the male. “But you can stay if you’re not with her.”

Though why on earth was he here, so close to where mother was denning? Didn’t sit right. But first problems first, right?

What a jerk. Golden eyes flashed to the boy. Then her ears flattened at his remark. She knew what a friend was… Sort of.

Her tail tucked slightly beneath her frame. “I…” she began. However… His next words earned a slight growl out of the girl.

“And who are you to say i am welcome or not?” she asked narrowing her eyes as she brought her body up slightly. Who did this kid think he was?

Dierks was silently cursing himself for lingering. The small, white boy should have been an omen to heed. The shores were temptation and the heavens were disappointed in his resolve, he was sure of it. A slight grimace nagged at his features. A stand-off was the last thing he needed. The mountains whistled a sweet song of solitude and he wished he could answer the call.

Friends. The notion behind the word was adolescent and so was the black man who had uttered it. Dierks felt a sense of hostility that was so overwhelmingly even he, inept in most readings of others, picked up on it. For the most part, he was disinterested in their exchange, feeling left out in the tension. Until the smaller black one uttered that he was welcome to stay if he was not with the chocolate lass. The grimace tugged tighter. Dierks was not one for an authority to allow him permission to have existence in his beloved nature. He let pack wolves go about their business, distrusting of their establishment but not keen on butting heads. He did not enjoy being booted from a land other wayfarer’s were simply resting their heads as well.

Golden gaze narrowed slightly as he stared across the distance between them. “What are her crimes?” His interest did not lay so much in vindicating her, but more so where the black man had ground to stand on. Her question echoed out between them and Dierks quieted once again, keen on understanding what authority the confrontation was coming from.

“I live here,” he snapped right at the offending she-wolf, pulling no punches as he felt his fur lift, making him look bigger than he was.  His stance squared off, tail up and proud.  “This area is my mother and father’s territory and we live here together.  If we don’t like you, you don’t get to stay.”

Huff.  Then golden eyes twitched to the face of the male.  “She tried to trick me into feeling bad for her.  I don’t like her and I don’t trust her.  She can’t be near here. My brother is too little for tricksters to be snooping.”
