Mintaka hadn’t been in the best of moods. She was ticked at basically the world. No one understood her and how she could express how she felt was even worse.

The pup had no words and didn’t really know what emotions were. She was a rock… nothing could stand against her. Mintaka was a child of the Stars… Though she didn’t really know what stars were…she imagined them to be something great, because Mintaka was great. Logic.

Right now, the fuelled girl was pacing rather seriously back and forth in front of the entrance. Her brows were together and her lips turned down. Head facing downwards and shoulders bunched, she may have looked intimidating if she were larger.

However, older wolves may think her adorable… pouting about life she barely even knew.

Aster was completely and utterly lost in thought.

Dull claws drug him from the cool of the caves into the searing heat of the sun, on and on until the shade of the trees engulfed him back into darkness.

And for the longest time, the boy just stood there.

Blueish-yellow eyes trained on the dry moss and the bugs that skirmished along its edges, tail completely limp at his hocks.

Dad left, first.

His memory was hazy, he couldn’t recall.

Then went mom.

Those memories were the ones that stung most. Her, he could not forget.

It was so that for the first time, a stream of tears had started to prickle along the edges of his eyes, reluctantly blinked away in favor of happy thoughts.

But none came.

Wolves tried, but none could replace the comfort of mom. The way he and his sisters would play and cuddle in and around the den. It all went downhill when they moved to those stupid caves.

Angry and confused, Aster finally fell to a sit, limbs too shaky to keep his large body afloat in the sea of trees that’d surrounded them since birth, tail shifting along the grass until it finally wrapped around his side.

He hadn’t noticed Mintaka exit out of the caves, or the birds that flew overhead. 

Right now, he didn’t care.

Ears flicked toward an unusual sound. It didn’t sound like it belonged in the forest. Turning her head, Amber orbs landed upon her sibling. He appeared rather sad.

Ok, Mintaka was a jerk sometimes, but she had a heart. Padding over, the girl hesitantly took steps closer to her sibling. She then sniffed at her brother in a sisterly way… trying to get him to cheer up.

“I know” she said. Mintaka wasn’t stupid. She was very upset and hurt as well. However, the girl didn’t hold the vocabulary to tell her brother how she felt or really comfort him.

Instead, she sat down next to him. “Worl bah” she said. World bad. It was indeed. A terrible place… and she was introduced to it to early in her life.

Footsteps closed in behind him, and Aster found himself working to blink away the tears before he could help it, a loud sniff breaking the obvious facade as his head tilted back to meet her.

I know.

Mintaka’s words rang out equally melancholic, offering some strange comfort to the pain that gripped his chest and left him reeling in discomfort, grey ears sliding back to the wet nose and kind weight that pressed against him.

“Ye ..” Voice soft, the boy agreed.

Leaning in then, Aster sought to press his muzzle kindly at his sisters face, tail giving a light wag against the strain.

Surprising, Mintaka had forgiven her brother for stabbing her in the eye. Right now, this was a painful time that they could bond over.

When his muzzle came around and pressed to her face, she licked his muzzle. “What do?” She asked a she stated at her brother. What was the big family supposed to do now?

The lick was unexpected but appreciated, a rare break in their strained relationship, and Aster found himself returning it just the same.

What were they to do?

Four orphans, cast out into a wild and unknown world, Aster pondered. “Iunno. Stay ‘gether.” That was most important, as long as they didn’t lose track of each other, they might survive.

Might.

“Lea trin tek ma place” she said the lady called Leas was trying to be mother to them. Mintaka didn’t agree with it. “Sorrel an Aza go” she tried to explain. The two girls had willing gone to the woman without hesitation.

It was like they were ready to replace mother. However, Mintaka had been strong and only used the woman for food sources.

Her next words had Aster swallowing.

Trying to replace ma.

Grey brows knitted into a frown, body stiffening against the notion. Leas was not ma. Only ma was ma, nice and warm, kind beyond measure.

Even if Leas possessed all those qualities, there was no replacing her soothing touch, Aster decided, voicing a broken “No.” to the only wolf he trusted to hear it right now.

“She no ma.” Voice growing bolder, the boy threw himself into his sister again, shaking with anger and disdain and craving comfort more than anything.

Finally, someone understood. Someone wasn’t going to replace mother like her sisters did. The golden pup couldn’t help but feel a sense of pride swell within her as her larger brother threw himself into her.

Mintaka knew he wouldn’t replace Ma. He was strong like her, and that was probably the only compliment the girl would give to her brother.

“Not Ma” she agreed. It was funny how with limited words, the pair understood each other. Perhaps it was because they were both children and had jumbled brains.

“Wha do?” She asked again. What were they going to do about their siblings. As her brother shook, the pup could feel his anger. It felt right… that they were both angry and hurt.

She wrapped a stubby arm arm around her sibling and held him there as she groomed the top of his neck.

What would they do?

A repeated question but with an entirely different angle.

What would they do about ma? About Sorrel and Azalea seeking to replace her?

Aster blinked silently, body convulsing ever so lightly to the need to cry. But ultimately he couldn’t do anything but ponder.

They had no control over their sisters, but maybe.

“We find ma.” Aster finally decided, not sure when or how but his mind was made up. They would go find her until the trees swallowed them too.

Then everything would be okay again, right?

Mintaka had never thought her brother as the smart type until now. They were to find mother. Honestly, Mintaka would have gone either way, but now she had her brother.

“Ya… buh wait” she stated. They had to figure out when and how. The brown lady seemed intent on keeping the pups in the cave. How were they to get away?

Plus, Mintaka, though stubborn… She imagined she couldn’t get far. They needed to wait.

They had to wait?

It took Aster a good couple seconds to realize why. Not quite as adventurous as his sisters, he preferred to spend his time sleeping instead of escaping, mostly avoiding the other adults where possible.

But even then, he knew, they watched the woods. Watched for escapees.

So he agreed with a small nod, leaning into his sister one last time before getting up, eyes trained on the entrance to the caves.

Decidedly, the boy breached another subject he’d been curious about, hopeful to lighten the mood a little.

“Yu like other pups?” Head tilting and ever curious, Aster regarded her.

Mintaka was grateful her brother understood and dint question because she wasn’t even sure she could explain.

Then her sibling asked a sudden question. “Ya… like Auberwon” she replied. “Yu like oders?” She asked in return.

“Iunno.” Aster answered honestly, not having put forth much effort to socialize other than running after his sisters to protect them. “Auron fun” He agreed though, tail giving a light wag.

“Wan play?”

Better to seek distraction than sulk, right?

Aster seemed to be pretty neutral about the other pups. Mintaka wished she could be so welcoming… But something within her caused the young female to not allow everyone so near her.

Then the boy asked a fantastic question. Play. Minta had wanted to play for a while… But she was unsure if Auberon would still want to after everything that happened. She had been a grumpy fuzzball for the past few days.

Nodding her head… The golden child leaped at her sibling and aimed to chew on his ear.

Albeit a little less enthusiastic than usual, Aster still preferred being chewed over thinking any longer on the prospect that ma and dad were gone, and would likely never return.

Tail falling to a slow wag, the boy burst to the side as Mintaka ran to him, aiming to tackle her to the ground before she got her hold.
