Since leaving Eve, Rowan’s emotions felt as though they were being pulled apart by two opposing tides. He’d had such fun playing in the weird, smelly water with the girl, and yet… he also couldn’t shake what she’d said.

About Daddy. How he was supposed to have one.

As his paws carried him to the familiar green grass beneath the dappled canopy of the oaks, he glanced around. He’d always liked how the place looked at night, how still and peaceful it seemed. It soothed his worries and made calling for his siblings easier.

“Say? Ash?”

His voice was gentle as a whispering breeze upon the grass. He wasn’t really sure if they’d hear him, but that didn’t stop him from hoping. He certainly didn’t want to call out any louder.

For some reason, he felt it’d be better to get their opinion before Mum’s. What would she think of him, for not knowing he was supposed to have a Daddy until now? Would she be ashamed? Disappointed? And if he told her they were supposed to have one, would learning that make her sad, as it made him?

He couldn’t have that. No.

Rowan passed the Dentree, walking further out into the surrounding clearing until he could see the edge of the shimmering river, and Ash’s tree fort highlighted in the glow of the rising moon. There, he settled himself into a sit, his ears at an angle somewhat lower than the usual one.

“Wanna talk, guys…?”

Ash was asleep. This wasn’t surprising. It had been a busy of of exploring, hunting mice, zoomies, swimming, and pounce-practice. But he tended to sleep light and when his name was called his eyes opened with a grunt.

Rowan. Probably having a night terror or something silly, but Ash supposed he’d better check. He pushed himself to all fours and gave himself a shake. Feeling a bit more awake he went trotting towards his brother.

“Here.” He announced himself, and at seeing Rowan calm he came to sit by him with an expression that said you can talk but I make no such promises.

During the nights, Saya had always preferred to sleep somewhere close to someone. Usually that would be with mommy, or else one of her brothers. The den was sort of too crowded now, sleeping outside wasn’t too bad, sometimes it was better, Except when it rains. Lately, after discovering how to swim, she has been swimming a lot and it gets her exhausted for the rest of the day.

Luckily she was nearby when Ro called, else she’d be sleeping like a rock. She looked in his direction before yawning then getting up. Talking was still something she enjoyed doing no matter the time it was. Steadily she made her way over to him.

Ash was there, which was nice of him. She whispered because obviously she would have been shushed at least more than once during the nights. “What is it Ro?” She was still feeling exhausted so there wasn’t that much energy coming from her.

Rowan had rested on his trip back to the savanna from the shore, so he was rather awake despite the hour, if not for that reason then certainly for his restless thoughts. Part of him knew his siblings would probably be asleep at the time, but they were family. You woke one another up for things like this when you were family. They could deal.

Ash was the first to arrive, settling himself nearby with a grunt. Rowan rocked forth on his paws, the little gesture giving away how badly he wanted to curl up against his brother like when they were little. But he only just refrained.

Saya came around then, looking really sleepy. Ro knew she wouldn’t mind touch as much as their brother, and he reached forward to boop his nose against her side as a greeting and a way of saying thanks for coming.

“Met a girl,” he began. His lips curled up into a grin, one that lasted for only a few moments, because he certainly hadn’t forgotten why he’d called his siblings out tonight. “She said something about a Daddy. How we supposed to have one. It’s like a Mummy, but a boy. You know anythin’ about it?”

His brow wrinkled, leaving him to look far too troubled at such a young age. But he was desperate to know. His blue eyes rested on Ash first before turning to Saya.

Ash leaned in and gave his brother a sniff. What was with him anyway, waking them up? Even Saya looked tired.

He felt a moment of outrage. Rowan had been somewhere without him. This was new. Rowan was not the boldest of the litter. Ash wished he’d told him where he was going, but he could figure it out himself because Rowan smelled a lot like Percy did. He’d gone down to the gorge, where the tide pools and the strong salty smelling water were.

“What girl.” He grunted, showing a modicum of interest. But it turned out the girl wasn’t what Rowan had woken them up to talk about. Uh-oh. Dad stuff.

“Why’d you wake us up to ask that? Ask Mum.” grumbled Ash, staring down at his dark forepaws grumpily.

A little boop from Ro was fine, it’s not like she didn’t do the same from time to time. So what was this all about? Her brother met a girl? Who could it be? Saya started to wonder if she should go further out to see what was out there just like her brothers do.

The concern was not about the girl, instead at whatever a dad was. The only hints were it was like mommy but a boy. The first wolf to come to mind was Bucky. But she was tired and came with the conclusion that there wasn’t anyone like mommy.

“There’s no one like mommy. She the only one who stay home with us. There’s not a daddy here.” That was her sleepy opinion. Ash was right though, Mom would probably know more than her and Ash. “Yeah, maybe ask mom if the girl is right. Mommy knows everything.”
