Ren had been awake since nearly dawn. Poking around the cove, in and out of the Tribe’s claimed lands. Exploring, familiarizing himself with the waters and sand, hunting whatever he could manage to feed himself. He could fish, but it could be tedious at times. And then, it happened. He had successfully captured an a water weasel, long and brown, and quite heavy too. It was an otter. But he didn’t know it was called that - all he knew was it was big and edible.

Dragging the limp creature along the rocky slates and sand beds, his tail stuck out and wagged with pleasure at his own trophy. A prize not only for himself, but Yuna and the girls as well.

It hadn’t been a few short days since speaking with Yuna - and still he hadn’t spent any special one on one time with the young pups of Yuna.

A few gruff bark left between his teeth and mouth full of otter. His meal dropping to his feet as his called out to them, ”Yuna? Girls?” he assumed Yuna May show up, and hopefully her also calling for the kids would encourage them to join as well.

Yuna heard the call and her head lifted from where she was sorting herbs inside the caverns. She carefully nudged some fresh peppermint into the alcove then went trotting outside, relishing the feel of the sand underpaw, the warm sunshine in her coat and the familiar crash of the waves further down the shore.

“Good afternoon, Renegade!” She called as she made her way towards him. His clear chocolate-brown fur showed up so clearly on the beach.

She noted he seemed to be in good spirits. And that he held… “Stars above, you’ve got an otter!” She exclaimed. She hadn’t seen one of those in months.

She’d seen it there in the shallows all pretty and shiny, a shell like one she didn’t have. She’d had to leave her one she found on the beach behind after Yuna had caught her and Mahalo playing outside of the cove.  Since that day she’d been sticking close but first chance she got she was going to sneak away to retrieve it.

Unfortunately this shell was under the water and she wanted it badly.  She had to do it, she was going to stick her head under the water so she could get it. Taking a deep breath she plunged her head into the water and searched around for the shell with her nose before picking up in her small jaws. Happily with her prize she dashed out of the water and up the beach to her special shell place.

At least that was before she heard a definite man’s voice by where she knew her mother was. What did he want? Racing across the sand she came across the scene of the man and her mum and he had something, an otter she heard Yuna say, hanging from his mouth.

She approached cautiously sniffing at the man and the thing in his mouth.  She remembered vaguely his scent from that day with the ash but she looked to her mother for guidance anyway.

Yuna was first upon the scene, radiantly glowing in good spirits, as she always was. His tail wagged a few beats as she closed in and greeted him chipperly. Along the way, she noted that what he had captured was an otter. So the water weasel had a new name. The meal, as well as his face, was still damp from just leaving the water less than an hour ago.

Silver eyes blinked a few times and his ears swiveled as one of the small girl joined them. She was… wet. Very wet. As if she had dunked only her head under the water. A puzzled look crossed his face as he glanced to yuna - Why was she all wet like that?

As the warm, soft breath of the pup was felt on himself and the meal he had brought, he stood mostly still. He was much, much larger than the girl. Much larger than Yuna, even. It was easy to startle puppies.

After familiarizing his scent as well as the otters. Renegade nudged the meal a bit closer to the pup, so she could truly analyze the creature better. ”How’s the day been, so far?” his question was directed towards Yuna as he waited for the other two to potentially show up.

Yuna smiled at Arashi and bent her head to touch the top of her head with her nose, inhaling the smell of salt with her familiar Arashi-smell. Salt water - she’d been swimming. Well, not swimming. Only her head and neck were wet. Her eyes twinkled as she figured out what was happening and Renegade shot her a puzzled look.

“Arashi, good morning.” She greeted her first, then gave her wet face a few licks. “Have you been collecting shells again have you?” That was for Renegade’s benefit to explain her daughter’s fur.

“This is Renegade, and Renegade this is my daughter Arashi. And well thank you.” This was a small white lie, her head turning back towards the caverns briefly, looking for her other two daughters. “I collected some herbs I’ve been sorting so I’m glad that’s done. Arashi, what do you think of Renegade’s otter?”

The smudge’s tail wagged behind her at her mother’s smile. She sniffed a little more at the otter as he mother touched her crown. She’d never seen one of them before. The man pushed it closer to her so she could investigate it further, she looked up at him before her mother’s voice interrupted her momentarily.

She looked up at Yuna and closed her eyes as she felt the familiar touch of her mother’s tongue on her face. She then dropped her shell in the sand to speak. “Good morning mum, isn’t it a pretty one? It was under the ocean so I had to get it out.”

She looked back at the man who her mother called Renegade thoughtfully, “Hi Rengade,” she greeted. She looked back at the otter when her mother asked what she thought, “Very big.” It seemed to be as big as her.

Renegade felt his tail sway each time the young bundle of black fur looked his way. An ache and equal joy in his chest. It was not his daughter, but perhaps if he had one, she would have been full of joy and wonder just as Yuna’s child was. He grinned to himself as he listened to the exchange between the girls before him.

Yuna made sure to address the fact that her daughter hunted shells, Arashi, was her name. And it appeared that the shell lied beneath the waves, so she sunk her head in to nab it.

Ren nodded and watched his tail as she simply stated the otter was big. Nearly as big as the girl herself. Which meant it should be a decent meal for them to all have - if the other two arrived any time soon.

”Would you like some?” cocking his head slightly he angled his head downward to the bi-eyed puppy, then only moved his silver eyes up to meet Yuna’s - to extend the offer to her as well.

She smiled down at Arashi as she explained she’d gotten the shell from under the ocean. “Nice work, Stormcloud.” She praised her middle daughter. “You must have eyes as sharp as an eagle.” She looked up to catch Renegade wearing an unexpected grin watching her with her daughter. Her own smile deepened knowingly. Despite the expression, she thought she could see regret mingled in.

It must be hard - too stoic to really talk a great deal about what he had lost, trying to find himself a place, even a temporary one, without his family. Renegade was strong though, and as he offered them some of his meal she nodded and nudged Arashi encouragingly. “That’d be lovely, Renegade. Arashi, what do we say for such a nice offer?” She prompted, hoping to encourage her daughter’s good manners to continue.

Though she hunted almost exclusively fish and seafood herself, she was no stranger to land-based prey. She settled down to open the tough waterproof coat up to get at the meat.

Mismatched gaze looked up at her mother as she grinned when she received praise for what she’d done to acquire the shell. “You really think so?” She asked when her mum said she had to have the eyes of the eagle. When Yuna’s gaze left her and went to the man Arashi turned to him too. He had a strange look on his face but she didn’t know what it meant and she didn’t have time to wonder, her mother was speaking to her again.

She’d heard the man ask if they wanted some of the otter after she had declared it very big. She’d never seen anything like it and to be so close to it she wondered how they were going to eat it all. She turned to her mother as she asked a question of the smudge. She then turned to Renegade. “Yes, thank you Rengade,” she said with a smile.

She then turned to her mum to make sure she had said and done the right thing. These manner things were so hard to remember sometimes.

Renegade wagged his tail promptly as Yuna neared the meal and opened it with ease. A way to encourage her daughter and ensure easier eating. The young pup, Arashi, agreed and instantly thanked him for such a thing. ”You’re quite Welcome, dear,” the endearment left his lips with a shocking ease, as if he’d been calling the girl that her whole life. He hadn’t even realized the word had truly left his mouth until post speaking.

Even then, he didn’t fuss over calling the child “dear”. Instead he just watched as she neared the food and took note of whether or not she enjoyed such a meal. Perhaps he should attempt to catch another for the other girls of the Nami family.

“Good girl.” It would have been easy for the praise the healer gave her daughters for using good manners to fall flat, be token, but Yuna’s voice was warm and genuine each time she did.

Used to small but frequent meals, she ate a little, even as one of her ears twitched in a slight flinch at the word ‘dear’. It wasn’t because Renegade used it, just that it had been used at all. But Arashi, she told herself, wouldn’t have the negative associations with that endearment she herself did. Her daughter was innocent, and should be allowed to stay that way.

She pulled back to give Arashi more room, then her gaze went to Renegade. She stretched her head up to nudge him - touching his ribcage, about as high as she could reach with him standing, and her lying down.

“You should eat too, Ren. You worked hard catching this for us.” She encouraged. He needed to look after himself, but more than that he needed to know there were still other wolves who cared about his well-being.

She knew that her mother wanted her to use good manners when speaking to Renegade, it wasn’t very hard for the smudge to do that. She smiled at the praise she received from her mother then as she always did. Arashi liked to know when she was doing a good job. But even more than that she saw that it seemed to make the man happy.

The pup watched as her mother started into the otter opening it up to reveal the meat under the skin. Her mismatch gaze went back to Renegade as he spoke after she had thanked him. Before she moved into settle with her mother she went to the man and put her paw on his foreleg. It was at that moment that her mother spoke telling him to join them. She looked up to him with her tail wagging. “Please,” she said, <b>“Come,”</b she added not wanting him to he left out after he had brought them such a meal.

She then turned and slipped her dark body in beside her mother as she used her puppy teeth to tear at the meat. Pulling a small puppy size piece off she began to eat.

Yuna of course insisted he too, should eat. To which, Renegade nearly denied. He had a small hare earlier, yet, Arashi had gently place her paw against him and also invited him to join in the meal. A simple nod was his response to the girls soft voice of encouragement.

The brown and burlap male stepped closer, allowing Arashi to tear her own piece, then he as well, tore a small chunk for himself. His tail gently swaying against his haunches as he tasted the warmth underneath the incredibly tough outer skin of the otter.

”Quite a prize, the coast offers meal wise.” it was not all fish and strange aquatic creatures, there were water mammals as well. Just as satisfying as a plains hare or forest squirrel.

Yuna smiled at Arashi first. She noticed the way she put out a paw to the big male, fearless as ever around new people. And the way Renegade responded.

He would have been a good father. It wasn’t fair he had been denied the chance, she thought sorrowfully. A lot of wolves hadn’t gotten to be fathers, it seemed…

Arashi insisted he ate as well, keeping up her good manners, which would hopefully see her through life.  Her smile then transferred to Renegade. “Spoken like a true coastal wolf.” She told him earnestly. “It’s not all fish and nothing else you know. The plains have plenty of rabbits as well.” And once you knew the best ways up and down the cliff, within easy reach.

It was clear to the pup that her mother and Renegade were friends so she didn’t see any reason why he shouldn’t join the Nami’s in their meal. She took it upon herself to emphasize the invitation that her mother had given. The paw placed on his foreleg was accepted as was her invitation with a nod. A wide smile crossed her face happy that he would be joining them.

Once she was sure he was joining them she moved in next to her mother, pressing her side against her so that Renegade would have room too. She then tore her own piece of the meat off and began eating happily. It was a new taste to her and one that she found she rather liked.

She listened and watched as the two adults spoke to each other about the types of food that could be found in the area. “Eat otter more often,” she said looking between her mother and Renegade. “Ashi like. Ren do good job.” She decided to call the man what she heard her mother call him. She also thought that was the best way to show what she thought of the meal.

Think so?” he offered in return to Yuna’s comment of calling him a coastal wolf. A small grin accompanied his soft words towards, it was nice. On the beach, with Yuna. With the tribe.

”Well I’m glad I can work up to your standards, Arashi,” his tail swayed gently and he looked back up to Yuna as she addressed the avaible prey among the territory - inside and near to the borders.

”Yuna,” pausing momentarily, his colorless, gray eyes switched between her vastly diffeeent shades of blue and green. ”Is there anything I can assist with, within the tribe. Or with the girls at all?” he felt useless. And he didn’t enjoy feeling such a heavy weight upon him.
