It was time.

After meeting the girl, answering her questions and agreeing to train with her,  Yakov found some even terrain to practice on and lowered his rump to the ground. Broad chest exposed and tail curled around his paws, the Brother let out a short howl calling out for Cygnus, expecting her arrival shortly to begin what she’d requested. In all honesty, his expectations weren’t high, at least not yet. While during real fights there was little time to figure out the opponent’s moves, strengths and weaknesses, it was still a good skill to have. A skill Yakov, tonight, would use to get a hold of what Cygnus was and was not capable of.

The girl perked up, snapping her head towards the sound. It seems that it was time to practice. She trotted towards the falls, weary and tired from her training. Whenever she got anxious, she would try to do something to calm her thoughts. That was what she did. She kept training herself, which was rather a bad choice as it exhausted her.

Once she arrived she dipped her head at the male. “Good evening” she greeted softly. She had no idea how this would go, but she knew she had to learn at some point. Thus, here she was, scared sh*tless and ready to fail.

The young girl had heard the call, and yet she dared not think that something terrible was happening. Drawing out of the prison that was the space that Eyja was raising her family, and against their will Nemesis herself and Xanthos, well. She was beginning to see that Xanthos had gotten lucky.

He had taken a shine to the one called Natasha, and yet she was left without him on the occasions they would go off together. No one could compare to her Dark Lady. She thought about her, constantly, even as the days grew longer. There was not an hour that went by that Nemesis didn’t feel like she had been left unable to understand.

Ears swung down against her head as she approached, but kept low to the bushes. She would never interrupt, and the likelihood of her being bold enough to give away her position was slim.

skippable! She’s just being nosy!

Cygnus arrived much quicker than Yakov expected. He greeted her with a nod, unaware of the child concealed within the bushes nearby. “Are you ready?”

“As ready as I’ll ever be” she answered softly. Cygnus was incredibly anxious about this. What if she failed so awfully that Yakov didn’t want to teach her anymore? What if they kicked her out for not being able to fight? What if? In order to calm the whirling thoughts, she took a deep breath and concentrated in the moment. On the way the moist air carried the smell of trees and…pups? There was a pup nearby? Cygnus decided to ignore it for now. She would go look for them later, after all, shouldn’t pups stay with their parents or a guardian?

Once again, Cygnus tried to focus on the smell, taste, sight, and sound of the scenery before her. Taking another deep breath, she found herself mentally prepared for it. Still scared, but it was more manageable now.

Though she said she was ready, Yakov couldn’t fail to notice the tense way in which she held her body and how she felt the need to breathe in and out as if preparing for something much greater. The male rose to his feet, tail flicking behind him. He’d act depending on how she would begin. “Lunge first.”

Wait, lunge? So, attack first? Oh boy, this wasn’t going to end well. Cygnus got herself into a wider stance before lunging. She was aiming for the male’s shoulder, as she was afraid to aim for anything else. She had no defense set up, but also had zero disabiloties or injuries to hold her back. The lunge was done quickly, but not exactly in a calculating manner. Her target, if moved, would more than likely cause her to crash or stop suddenly and loose balance.

It was obvious from the way she got into position to the way she sprang towards him that Cygnus hadn’t done this before. While her side managed to graze his own when he dodged, the male had been rather quick to react and didn’t get knocked out of balance. Given the opportunity that she was now facing away from him, Yakov aimed to firmly grasp the girl by her scruff.

Cygnus smidded to a halt, losing balance. She ended up falling tl the right. The yearling scrambled to get up, but it was clear that she had no chance winning this.

Nemesis’ eyes had rounded in disbelief. Dark wolves were kinship to her; the real bridge. The Dark Lady was one half of her world and all that mattered, and Xanthos was the other half. Both of them being dark, it had eased her some to stick her nose out and watch them.

But then they’d started fighting. In some ways, she recognized some of the tactics. Things she could practice with Xanthos on warm days. They looked playful, and she was certain she could do them. Laying her head on the ground, she stared out with the same edge of disbelief though.

Were they unhappy as she was? Was that why they were fighting?

Still totally skippable

He missed. While her attack wasn’t successful, Cynus was quick to get up, avoiding his jaws. Waiting for her to strike again, Yakov backed away a few steps. “Defense first. Push your ears back unless you want to lose them. Don’t leave your neck exposed.”

The girl nodded. She pushed her ears back and lowered her head to the point where it covered her neck. She attacked again, going low once more, trying to get one of his legs and throw him off balance. She might have the upper hand once she knocks him down, but of course, the Cygnus had no idea what she would do once he was off balance.

Yakov readied himself for her next attack. When she lunged, he didn’t dodge and allowed the girl to tackle him down to the ground, though not without wrestling her momentarily. As his spine collided with the ground, he let out a snort. “More force next time. Watch out for your legs.”

Without hesitation, he aimed to knock her hind limbs off balance with his own by kicking, teeth once again bared.

Ears back.

The demonstration was done by the dark girl, and round eyes rolled upwards. Ears back. How did she -

One ear went back, and Nemesis scrunched her face up making the other one fall back as well. But then watched as the older girl went for the legs.

The back hurt more; the Dark Lady had left little puncture marks the days that Nemesis had been ripped away from her. Licking her lips in anxious throes, her head tipped down as she listened.

Force. What the heck was that?

But the legs were interesting, spindly things. He was almost like, shouldering her. Weird.

Cygnus lost balance and fell back. She let out a soft grunt as she did, being unprepared for it. Cygnus got up and nodded.

Force, balance. Force, balance. Force, balance, the two words respeated in her head over and over again. She stalked around Yakov, looking for a better spit to strike. Hind legs? Hind legs. The girl came at him again, this time with much more force. If she pinned him down, the dark wolf would do her best to put all her weight on him and make it harder to get up. Sadly, if she did pin him, she would be too focused on the force and protection of her neck and end up exposing her stomach.

Cygnus was a fast learner. The fact delighted Yakov for at her age, he had also developed a passion for acquiring information and doing it efficiently. While the Brother regained her balance, Yakov was intentionally too slow to stand back up. She ended up pinning him well. The male’s teeth nipped harshly at her underside, hoping that the worless suggestion would hint at covering her sensitive chest and abdomen.
