Bucky put down the beaver he had in his grip, which he’d been carrying to Fawn and Efeon and he imagined their girls were eating meat by now too. Standing atop the easier south face of the cliff, he put out a cautious paw in case Bayley and Percy’s excitement got the better of them.

“Okay boys. Now Fawn and Efeon’s pups are a bit smaller than you and two of them are pretty shy. You’re the first wolves their age they would have met. So it’s up to you two to be the gentleman here, yeah?”

He smiled at the irrepressible duo, then up at Nomad. His best friend had been so right - this would be good for Percy and Bayley. Taking their mind off their mother for a while, giving them something positive to focus upon.

Then he let out a short howl. “Hey Eefie, Fawn, pups? Brought you some friends to visit!” His tail was already wagging. This was a lot of pups, but Bucky felt pleased and proud to be here. As part of his extended family. “Okay boys, you ready?” He picked up his beaver and began to show Percy and Bayley the easiest way down the rocks, though he suspected they wouldn’t be slowed down for long. 

((Okay since this could get beyond massive let’s do once per round posting, no posting order between rounds, Bucky starting new rounds <3))

Having done with his patrols for the day, Efeon was simply relaxing at the shoal, the time he got to spend with his mate and daughters. He realised it was vital he was a part of their lives as much as possible. Not that he needed any convincing to spend time with the wolves he loved the most.

And speaking of other wolves he loved, Efeon perked up at Bucky’s call. His head turned quickly to look at the rock wall, especially excited when Bucky mentioned he brought friends. “Bucky! Nomad! Hi!”

Then on closer inspection, Efeon realised he meant friends for his daughters too, as two little pups were wandering down. He finally stood up, and watched them for a moment.

Friends. “Girls! Uncle Bucky is here!” His tail was working on overdrive, his paws barely able to stay still from excitement.

The walk here had been interesting. Bayley had been rather quiet but he’d taken in his surroundings and thought a lot about the trip here. Pharaoh’s sons had died. He remembered that. Just like Mama had. Except he was already at a point of feeling numb to it. Puppies, you see, tend to bounce back very quickly from loss. Quicker than adults, at any rate.

This was strange ground though, and a strange place, and he was as nervous as he was excited. Bayley crowded his brother and the adults probably more than he should have. Relying on their comfort for guiding him through the new terrain. He didn’t know it well enough to feel confident.

Bucky called the family and then another voice responded and Bayley’s nose twitched in idle curiosity.

Eve didn’t notice the figures up the cliff straight away. She was sitting by the lagoon gazing out over the water, her tail waving lazily behind her. She didn’t respond to Bucky’s call ether. But when her father called, she did turn her head, and instantly forgot about the story she was mentally composing in her head.

“Daddy?” She called, voice a bit nervous. But her father looked so excited, and uncle Bucky had visited enough by now that she wasn’t as worried as she sometimes could be faced with new wolves. She ducked behind her father a bit shyly - but at seeing the first puppies her own age, she then leaned around him and peered at the group with curiousity in her pale amber eyes.

“Who Uncle Bucky bring, Daddy?”

Nomad had tagged along with the Shoal visit. The kids could meet each other and play with each other. In the meantime the adults could converse. And if they did not need Nomad he could go swim in the ocean. Efeon was first to greet them, and Nomad smiled. This had been a good idea. He had wanted to visit Fawn and Efeon and their kids for a while now, and bring them a gift. He guessed he should bring the gift later, though. But at least he got to see them today. ’‘Hi Efeon!’‘ he called back, tail wagging behind him.

He wondered if Fawn was around, too.

Voices made her ears perk up, names and summons and a few vaguely familiar scents washing down Shoal towards her spot near the south side. Her head cocked, mouth full of flowers and eyes wide. Bucky, Nomad.. Nomad! God it’d been ages since she’d see him!

Already up and running down the beach towards the group, her tail was wagging about as fast as her mate’s when she caught sight of two smaller figures she didn’t know. Pups! Maybe Pierre’s litter? Either way, they’d be friends for their daughters, and she couldn’t be happier.

“Hi guys!” Fawn yipped around the mouthful she had, halting beside Eefie and giving his cheek a happy lick because this was going to be so so so awesome.

Everyone was calling, sounding excited and happy, but Fox wasn’t pleased. It wasn’t just her regular amount of not pleased either. Granted, she hadn’t invited these wolves here, and where it had only been one visitor at a time before, there were at least two strange voices.

She was feeling particularly displeased on this day however because there had been an uncomfortable twinge in her right hip all morning. She had walked a little but that didn’t help. It had taken a long time of gentle digging, and wiggling about in the sand before she had found a comfortable position to lay in.

The heat from the sand baked at the joint, soothing it mostly. She was tucked just a bit further down the shoal but when she lifted her head she could see the wolves who had come to invade her quiet time. Big dark wolf who she didn’t really like, other big gray wolf who she didn’t know at all, and tiny boy wolf who was not one of her sister and therefor not wanted.

Fox wasn’t moving. She frowned, pressed her eyes closed and was determined to ignore them. Too bad that her orange coat clearly stood out against the tan sand she lay upon.

Percy found himself terribly interested in what they would soon be meeting, never having met another pup before, aside from his brother, of course. He felt Bayley crowding close to him, but rather than be upset by the lack of personal space bubble between them, he took it upon himself to press his body close to his brother’s and try to offer some comfort. He looked back at him briefly, giving a little smile. “C’mon, Bayley, friends!” he said encouragingly, tail wagging with his excitement. This was just another type of adventure, and besides, they had Bucky and Nomad here.

He took the rocky slope more slowly than he might, trying to support his brother on the way down. Had he been on his own, he likely would have hurled and slid his way down at top speed- but this was okay, too.

His nose twitched curiously as he looked around, seeing the parents- and, eventually- their pups. It took him by honest surprise that these appeared to be.. girls. He had never given thought to the fact that girls could be pups, too, and that Mama and Kaete and Poly and Babette had probably all been pups at one time. Woah.

Ever the gregarious little extrovert, as they reached the bottom of the slope and neared the little family he trotted forward, his forelegs extending in front of him in a showy prance and his tail held high. “Hi!” he called out to them, eager to make their acquaintance.

The boys handled the easier of the two slopes with no issues Bucky could note, and he flashed a quick grin at Nomad. It warmed his heart to see both Efeon and especially shy Fawn greet them with this sort of enthusiasm, and he felt a flash of guilt he hadn’t thought to do this before. Business was no excuse. He’d needed Nomad to arrange this.

“Come on.” He nudged Nomad enthusiastically and then went bounding down after Percy and Bayley. He could see two of the four Fawneon puppies, and he wuffed two greetings, Fox’s quieter than Eve’s since she showed no indication of getting up, not a bit of excitement that two other puppies were visiting.

“Hiya Eve, hiya Fox.” He made it to Efeon and Fawn and reached out to give them a little joint-nuzzle, he was so pleased to see them happy. Then he stepped back and pointed to the boys. “This is Percy, and this is Bayley.” He introduced them both. “Pierre’s sons.” His ears swiveled back sadly for a moment. Pierre and Blaise’s sons.

As usual, she had been very busy when the crowd formed. She hadn’t initially noticed the visitors, their presence nothing but a faint hum in the background. She was much too busy gnawing a wet stick. The way the softened wood mushed against her pointy teeth was much too satisfying.

That is, until she heard the familiar call of her father. And later, of Bucky. The precious stick was quickly abandoned as she turned to join the growing group. Even Ma’ came out to greet them. “Buckle!” The light in her eyes was bright as she loped toward him, coming to a sharp stop at his feet. Her little tail waved brilliantly at her rump.

The other boys went completely unnoticed at first. Right up until he said their names. Percy and Bayley. Their names sounded so similar. None of her sister’s names were like that.

Never forgetting her manners, she stood proud as she turned to the strange boys who weren’t much bigger than her. “Hello. I’m Doe and this is my Shoal.” A brilliant smile curled her tan muzzle. If they were with Bucky, they must be nice.

So many wolves were here suddenly. Two adults happily came to greet them and Bayley hung close to his brother. His nose worked curiously but all he could make out were blobs. He wasn’t even sure if that unmoving blob was another puppy or just some bit of food or something.

Bayley kept up with Percy but he wasn’t quite as excited outwardly. Curious and unsure about the strangers. Where were these girls? Doe introduced herself and Bayley hesitated for just a moment before coming over to sniff her in greeting.

“I’m Bayley!” he declared. He’d fought crabs, this was a cakewalk. His tail wagged as he took in the other pup now that he could see her and his eyes darted around for other moving blobs.

Eve giggled. Buckle was such a funny name for Bucky! But Doe was acting just as happy and relaxed as both her parents, so Eve lightened up further. She carefully watched one of the boy-puppies go to Doe and say hello and say his name. He had a nice, friendly face. “Bayley. Bayleybayleybayley.” She repeated to herself so she wouldn’t forget his name.

But that left the other boy, so following Doe and Bayley’s example Eve trotted out from behind her father and approached Percival. “Hi.” She repeatedly, her head submissively low, but her tail wagging hopefully. “I’m Eve. What’s your name?” She then shot an anxious look back over her shoulder to her parents. Was this right? Was she doing okay?

This was a whole lot less scary then when the visits her parents didn’t know came to the shoal. It was actually kinda fun, seeing other puppies.

Percy and Bayley, two boys around their daughter’s age. They weren’t too much bigger, thankfully, because she knew Eve and Fox especially might not cope too well with rough-housing. Her worries didn’t seem to hold any value though, because both boys seemed nice enough. And a bonus, Doe and Eve were being very polite in welcoming them to their home!

“Thanks for bringing them over,” Fawn chirped to Bucky softly, shooting him a small smile. This had to be good for their litter, no? Socializing with someone outside of herself and Eefie.

She eyed Fox then, who was a small distance off from the group. The ginger pup was making no effort to move, which was.. Maybe a little worrying. Was she scared by all the new faces?

Knowing how it felt to be unsettled with social interactions, Fawn tried to subtly slip off towards her. She jogged over, settling down beside her daughter and tilting her head down. Just gently sniffing, offering a little nuzzle, trying to figure out what was wrong. “Do you not feel well Fox? Or are you just being shy?”

Percy’s tail was held high as he wagged it, excitement on every line of his body. He was making friends! Little itty bitty friends no bigger than himself! The one called Doe piped up and explained that this was her shoal, and Percy was momentarily awestruck. This place belonged to her? Did the gorge belong to himself and Bayley? He’d never considered it!

He was staring around open-mouthed when Eve approached, her head held low. Despite her more timid posture, she was quite friendly, and he dropped into a halfway playbow. “I’m Percy!” he said, eyes bright as he grinned at her.

She could hear everyone else further up the beach. They were all talking and chatting - and the other pup voices were largely just saying each others name repeatedly it seemed. She heard someone say her own name - but it wasn’t either her mama nor her papa, so she didn’t lift up her head to look.

Why’d they have to come disturb everything right when she was comfortable and things were feeling better?

She would have tried to scoot further down the beach and find a new, warm place to rest until she heard the paw steps coming closer. This made her lift her head - to decide whether it was a family member she liked, or someone scary she needed to hide from.

It was mama with a little nuzzle for her that the girl gladly tried to press up into. She wasn’t either of the things mama asked about. “Noooooo,” she whispered in answer, finally pushing herself out of the sand and going straight towards her mother to nuzzle into Fawn’s fur and hide herself. Her hip no longer ached, so freshly removed from the warm sand. However the young pup had no good words to try to describe something that had hurt, but no longer did, but which still made her feel nervous. And so she did not provide any extra explanation for what was wrong.

She lifted a foot to paw gently at her mother, suddenly feeling needy and wishing to be snuggled and comforted until the strangers left.
