Benny liked talking, so he wanted to talk to the big dark wolf that wanted to talk to him obviously! Granted, talking to Holly more would have been nice too. She called him a friend and that was something that was far beyond what anyone else in this valley had ever considered him before.
He trailed after the big guy. The dark wolf started with his question but Benny tried to cut in after the little ‘not in trouble’ section. “So I’m Benny….and you might be…?” This guy seemed important, and like, Benny liked to know who he was talking to, even if he didn’t guarantee he’d remember the name later.
But! The guy had questions and this was an invitation to talk and boy was Benny good at talking! “Oh yeah so this was like…ummmm….more than a month ago….I came to the valley to look for my sister, from the east through that dessert, and then the hills, river, mountains, more grass, and then it started to storm one day and it was super windy and wet and I hate that!” Benny hoped that the dark wolf didn’t mind him explaining all of his recently history as well as they went.
“So I saw some trees and those turned out to be these trees basically and I was trying to find a place to hide from the storm and there was a really nice looking hole in the ground that I saw and I didn’t know it was a den for pups - course I know it is now - but anyway, so I was just gonna sit right inside until it stopped raining but as soon as my face was close to the den something bit me!” He whined slightly and flicked his head a few times, he didn’t have to remember the pain of that first time, his nose was sore and bloody right now. “It was the kid, the same kid, from the river, except he was smaller back then. But anyway, I tried to explain to him that I was nice and we could be friends but he kept trying to bite me and then miss Holly showed up and we settled things and that was that!” Yup, there was the whole story about the den and the first time he met Holly. He’d sort of tried to lie to Holly the first time but the damn kid talked and ruined it, so he figured he might as well just tell the stupid truth because that had happened like more than a month ago now so what did it even matter?
