[ he’s just south of the border to firefly woods! ]

The beach had been a tiresome place and as unenjoyable as any other, but now that he was free from that, he travelled north. There were places to the south and to the east he was yet to explore, but Ezekiel’s mind told him to wander freely, rather than to methodically prowl over the valley’s lengths and map out each and every inch of it. He would rather explore than do that.

By now, he had travelled by the burning trees by the beach and much more, but even then, he knew there was so much more to see – there were mountains looming in the north too, but they were far from his goal, as he had promised himself that he would not spend all of his time in the mountains, as much as he adored them. Travelling, it appeared, was his new way of life.

For tonight, though, he reserved himself to watching the stars, just as he had always done with his family. He missed that, certainly, but he knew that being here was a necessary part of his life.

There was very little that Ezekiel was interested in or that could get the man to smile, but as he looked up at the stars as they burnt themselves into the thick darkness that was the night’s sky, his normally cool expression curved into something of a small smile as he watched. It was faint, but it was there, a shadow on his face as he observed the dashed figure above.

Ezekiel’s family had never known the names of the stars, read the stars, or talked nonsense about them, they had simply watched them and enjoyed their presence. He wondered, sometimes, if that was so strange. To simply sit back and admire something for its presence and its beauty, but then again, he so rarely found himself interested.

But no – he was interested. He cared, and he was watching. The shadow of a smile alone told anyone that knew him that, even his family, who so rarely managed even that from him, despite their closeness.

Rocco had lived. She had lived! Was that not a miracle? The female was still in shock as she began to slow to a trot. She had yet to notice the chunk of flesh that dangled off the back of her left leg.

However… Her sides heaved as she continued her journey into the plains. The woman had been here before. This was the place she and Kiel passed. Now… It held no reason… No memory.

After the attack.. Rocco decided it was time to change and stop sulking… Go after what she wanted. At the moment… The girl wanted to figure out what she wanted.

In that moment… The woman swore she saw a dark figure in the night. Learning her lesson… She instinctively tucked her tail and stopped. Would this wolf chase her as well?

The stars had the male’s full attention tonight, even as the female stumbled her way through the plains towards him. His ears were perked on his head to detect any sounds that could alert him to any particular danger that loomed nearby, but nothing made Ezekiel’s head snap around to the female’s position as he watched the skies above. As she stopped and her tail tucked, he did nothing but continue to watch the sky above, unaware of her presence nearby. He had little interest in the area around him, unless he was in danger, and thus far nothing had indicated as much.

The man didn’t mind her presence. Perhaps he did hear her or didn’t really care? Maybe if she called for his attention… he would grow aggressive.

Blood from her leg dripped upon the ground. It was quite a lot, and the blood loss was making her weak. Her starving frame didn’t help either.

With that, the woman sat down and lifted her head to the stars and starred as well. They were beautiful, but why did the beauty have to be above them… Why could it be here? Alas, the creator put the cruelty with his creation… and kept the beauty away… locked up.

The stars were relaxing enough, but he could not watch them all night. He knew that well enough, so as the wind howled around them, he inhaled deeply, which was when he caught the female’s scent. His head turned slowly, not particularly unhappy nor blissful or bashful like some idiotic puppy or like Percival had been as he approached him, but his previous tiny smile faded in an instant as he looked at her with his head rotated towards her.

She, too, was watching the stars. He made no noise, aware of how wonderous the stars were at this time, especially when it was finally a clear sky. It was hard enough to find a clear patch where one could see the stars, let alone a night where it was clear enough to see them too. He watched her to see if she would notice, but he had no true wish to strike up a conversation.

For her to leave, perhaps.

The stars seemed to wink back at the small woman. It was almost comforting. It was amazing how such a dark sky could hold so much light.

A gentle smile formed across her features. She went over the events that happened.

Rocco thought she had found love… maybe she had but left it to soon for an illusion. She finally left after the suffering and was welcomed by open jaws.

Now, the girl sat here wishing to be at peace for once in her life. Then it hit her. The pain, the shooting pain and cold kiss of the wind upon her open wound.

Rocco had been sitting on it, so when the hurt courses through her, she wavered as she rolled to her hip and held her leg out.

Her golden orbs whipped away from the sky and to the male. He was watching her now. Rocco column imagine how weak she appeared, and it made her sick.

For right now, there was to much shock in her to move, so she sat and stared.

Her awareness soon shifted. It took her very little time, so he wondered how long she had known he was there. He doubted he had gone unnoticed given her location and likely path of approach, but he took little liberty in predicting that, so moved on swiftly from the topic and the idea altogether. However, he did not fail to notice the still-fresh scent of blood lingering in the air, as well as the injury that he could see in the dulled light of the moon and the stars.

Those that cared or had any sort of empathy may have asked, but Ezekiel simply glanced it over with a cool gaze that offered no such emotions. Whatever had caused such an injury either meant she was careless or had failed to heal herself, and sympathy and kindness would not heal a wound. She needed someone that could fix it, not someone that could give her sweet words and a hug.

Sympathy was ridiculous, especially for strangers. Kindness and help was appropriate to a friend, but not a stranger. They should help themselves.

She stared back. He did the same. He did hope she may leave, but he would not admit it. He had found, though, that the desire for interaction in the valley, so far, appeared to be quite high – almost as high as bizarre markings and ridiculous names. He had not travelled it all yet, though, so he refrained from making a final judgement.

He just…. Sat there. The pair stared at each other. What was he doing? What was she doing? “Sorry” she finally said.

“I didn’t mean to interrupt you…” She stated. Her ears went from flattening to perking… not really sure how to feel about any if this.

Would he reply? Could he speak?

The woman began to move her injured leg closer to herself. Perhaps he was focussed on her leg and the blood. Maybe if she hid it, then he would be more… open? Was that the word?

It took her some time, but then the staring stopped. It was not the reaction he had wanted, though. An apology. If it had been her raising herself into a stand to leave, he would have been pleased and would have smiled, but no – she apologised. For what, he could not say, but he just maintained his cool look as he watched her.

It became apparent that they were moving to conversation, though, so Ezekiel raised himself into a stand and adjusted himself. Once he was facing her, he dropped to the ground in a lying position, aware that it was information, but he hoped that it would make it clear that, if either of them were leaving, it was most certainly going to be her. She had not been here when he had arrived – he was fully aware of that – and he would not abandon his star-gazing spot.

Do not worry,” he told her clearly, his voice cool as he went, and a curt nod at the end. He was aware of her as she tucked her leg beneath her in some sort of attempt to hide it, but he could not decipher why. He did not try to puzzle over it, nor did he linger on it. He simply looked at her again, expression as cool as ever, and watched. If she spoke again, he would respond if he had to, but he still felt the same.

Hopeful that she may leave, although there was no evidence of that on his face, so the hopefulness of that was falsely created.

The male made himself comfortable. Rocco imagined he was going to move. That was fine by her. However… She was sure if she could move at the moment.

Might as well talk… Right? Giving a nod to his words “do you have a favorite constellation?” she asked. Her head tilted slightly but her stomach churned. Was that a good question? Rocco sure hoped so.

The female made a meagre attempt at conversation as she stabbed quite wildly into the dark – quite literally – for a topic of conversation that was relevant. Like the whole valley, she was obsessed with discussions with strangers and appeared overly happy to talk to wolves that could, quite easily, be far from pleased to see them; it appeared her injury had taught her nothing.

Those that did not learn were hardly worth the time it took to attempt to teach them, so he wondered why some wolves bothered with “she deserved to be taught a lesson” when wolves begged to be released. They were the sort that learnt nothing, and yet they were everyone; no wolf learnt, not truly, like that – they were just scared of the same lesson being taught again.

My family paid no real mind to constellations. We simply looked at the stars and admired the beauty of it,” he replied simply, still as disinterested as before. His voice was cool, as it always was. He said nothing else, never a conversationalist, and left it up to her. If she would rather they fall to silence, then he had no objection.
