Fox had found a new project. It was proving to be a complicated sort of thing to tackle, but Fox always found a strong sense of calm in immersing herself into a project. This particular one had been in progress all morning and still she felt as if it was progressing slower than normal. It was new though. This was not like her patterns made from rocks and feathers.

The orange pup was currently at the Rangers main cache, digging solemnly away. For all that her hips wobbled when she walked, she had managed to plant herself firmly enough to be largely successful with her digging. Perhaps she was not as exuberant as other pups might have been. Part of the area looked freshly dug, Fox had been at this for a while now. It had started innocently enough. The girl had just wanted to eat some fish. It reminded her of the shoal and Bucky had made it clear the cache was here for her to choose from. However, no matter how she dug at it, there was no fish to be found. There were a large variety of other things, but each thing that Fox dug up was not what she wanted.

It seemed that the entire cache was just a disorganized mess to her. How was anyone supposed to find what they wanted if things were just put in there with no sense of order. Fox was here to impose an order, even if it took all day, and even if her tummy was rumbling from her determination to eat fish and not anything else. She unearthed another furry creature and the small girl wrapped her jaws around a limb to begin to pull it out. What it was was not clear yet, but once she had identified it, she would re-bury it alongside the other things that were like it.

Nomad had caught a rabbit and was on his way to put it in the cache. Calmly enough, he moved with great easy over the stones. And the grass. Until he got there. But what he found was unexpected and interesting. Was that Fox? Digging in the cache? Nomad stopped and stared for a bit, frowning lightly. What was she doing?

Should he help her? Or would she refuse his help since she was still scared of him? Hmmmm… Nomad guessed he could try. He dropped the rabbit, and called out gently. ’’Hey Fox.’’ he said, and picked the rabbit back up. Then, he carried it over to her, and dropped it at his feet, leaving a small distance between him and Fox. ’’What you doing? Do you need help?’’ He smiled at her, tail waving.

Fox continued to pull at the limb of whatever she had just unearthed. Unbeknownst to her, she was had dug up a weasel, but having never seen a weasel before, she just frowned at the long furry creature.

Nomad’s voice made her glance over at him, startled at his sudden approach. The weirdness of the thing in front of her had already broken her concentration and as she glanced to Nomad she saw he had a rabbit. Rabbits made sense. He carried it closer. Fox abandoned the weasel for the moment and crossed the space between herself and Nomad. Perhaps it was because he was Bucky’s family, or perhaps because right now what she really needed was prey that made sense and that’s what Nomad had brought her, but she felt calm as she approached.

The small girl felt calm enough to bump her muzzle against the front of his nearest leg gently. It was likely the best greeting he would get for the girl then scooped up the rabbit and took it to its appropriate place. She had been putting all rabbits and rabbit-like things in the north-west corner. There was a small hole there still from where she had dug something else up, so she dropped the rabbit in and scooped a pawful of dirt back over it.

She returned to the weasel and just stared at it unhappily for a moment. There was someone here to help though. With a paw she nudged the weasel an inch closer to Nomad. “What’s this?” She asked it at a whisper, and she wasn’t looking at him, but she hoped he’d hear. It was such a new thing to talk to someone else, she was going out on a limb here with her question. It was that important to her to know.

The girl looked at him, and Nomad continued to smile. She came over to him, then, and Nomad was surprised. She bopped his leg, Nomad’s smile only grew brighter. ’’Hey girl.’’ he gently greeted her. It looked like she was digging up food and… re-digging it? That’s what it looked like. She took the rabbit and brought it to the other rabbits. Hmm, she sure liked to have things organized, huh?

He moved in a little closer and looked at her work, and then she asked what something was. He looked in her direction and saw the limb. Nomad walked over to it and stared at it. But he could not really tell by looking at it. It was buried, and mangled. So, Nomad sniffed.
’’I think it’s a weasel. They have very long bodies. Look cute but have nasty bites.’’

The shadow of the big wolf came over her, looking down at the weird thing she had unearthed. Nomad called it a weasel. Giving it a name helped, it let her organize things a little more. Though, she still didn’t really know what a weasel was. Food, she supposed, but not food she wanted today. She gave a little nod to Nomad at his explanation.

Fox grabbed the weasel right around it’s long, thin body and pulled it the rest of the way out. It was just going to have to go into some miscellaneous corner. She took it back to an area she had already dug up and dropped it down. She scooped a little dirt over it and just left it there.

She felt like she wasn’t getting all that much closer to this project being done. It just went on and on, and she get hungrier and hungrier. Fox moved to a new area and began to dig again. She just wanted fish. Why wasn’t there fish in here? She braced her back paws out to steady herself and dug slowly, scooping the dirt away neatly under her belly.

She grabbed the weasel and pulled it out, and then covered it in dirt in another spot. Why was she digging so much? ’’Why are you doing this? Are you looking for something to eat?’’ he asked her. But if Fox wanted to eat something, why did she not grab a rabbit, or the weasel? Or anything else she had found dug up? Nomad watched her in confusion.

’’Do you… need help?’’

She scooped at the dirt, but as she dug, and as Nomad spoke, she realized her legs were getting sore. Her front shoulders were starting to ache from the digging - she’d truly never done this much physical activity at a single time ever before in her life. She was getting tired, and she was getting hungry.

Fox leaned back from her digging and a sniffle escaped her. She’d never just given up on something before, but this was hard, and frustrating. She sniffled again and rubber her nose against a front paw, only to realize she was dirty too.

“Hungry,” she whispered out to Nomad before she had to keep up a constant stream of sniffs to stop herself from crying. She didn’t have a family to take care of her anymore, and she didn’t know where Bucky had gone. Fox had been trying to find what she had wanted in the cache, but she’d gotten so side-tracked on this and now everything just felt like it was falling apart.

After a little bit more digging, she told him she was hungry, and Nomad frowned. Here she was, at the cache, but she did not eat? Or did she want to finish organizing before eating? Oh man, Nomad did not want her to cry… ’’If you’re hungry, why don’t you grab one of the animals we have buried here?’’ he asked her, and encouragingly nudged a rabbit over in her direction.

’’If you wanted to finish up the digging and burying first, I can help you with that, so you can sit back and eat something. Is that okay?’’ Did Fox want help, or preferably not? Nomad did not want her to hurt herself, though. Or go hungry. He wanted to help her.

As Nomad nudged a rabbit towards her she shook her head. She just wanted fish, that’s how she’d gotten so involved in this re-organization in the first place. She hadn’t meant to, or wanted to, it had just happened. Too upset to explain any of those things though, all that escaped her were more sniffles. “Nooooooo…..” She keened softly at him, her eyes opening bigger and wider.

She didn’t wanna eat anything here. The girl stood and shuffled forward towards Nomad. Tears had started to roll down her cheeks and she wasn’t able to sniffle them away anymore. She wanted her mama and papa and sisters who would just understand what she wanted. Papa and mama had always just brought her food and she hadn’t had to dig for it. And she wouldn’t even want the fish if her family was still here. The orange pup angled to try to smoosh herself against the warm, soft fur of Nomad’s chest.

She did not want to eat rabbit? Then what did she want? Nomad was surprised when she came to snuggle into his chest fur. How had she warmed up to him so quickly? That was one question that went through his mind. The other question was, ’’But what do you want to eat, Fox? Something else?’’ If she did not want anything here, then what did she want to eat?

’’I will get it for you, just let me know what. So you can eat something.’’ Please just tell him, he wanted to help.

Fox nuzzled and pawed at the bigger wolf. Why was she not being comforted? She wanted snuggles and for someone to make it all better. Nomad was supposed to be like Bucky, everyone had agreed Nomad was okay, but he was just sort of sitting there talking to her.

The orange pup sniffled and rubbed her muzzle against his fur repeatedly. She opened her mouth like she was going to answer but all that came out was a whine. She was too overwhelmed, and dirty, and hungry, and sad, and upset, and afraid to talk right now.

She did not respond, why? Why was so she so upset? Nomad could not help her if she didn’t tell him what she wanted to eat, right? He let out a little sigh and laid down, patting his paw at his own chest. Would she like to snuggle him? She liked Bucky a lot, but Bucky was not here… Nomad wasn’t sure how much he could do for her… Maybe he would never be ready for pups. Pfft, who wanted Nomad as a dad?

’’Come ‘ere.’’ he told her, gently. Would she stop crying if she laid down for a bit?
Nomad was better off as uncle Nomad than dad Nomad.

As Nomad laid himself down Fox was quick to nuzzle against him. She folded her legs beneath her and her tail glue itself to her belly as she pressed in towards the big, gray wolf. The pup burrowed her face down, trying to tuck it into his fur to hide herself. She wanted to be little again. She wanted to be able to hide beneath her father’s chin with only her tail sticking out. She wasn’t little though, and her father wasn’t here anymore.

Tears continued to roll out of her eyes, but pressed against another wolf she finally stopped squirming and was able to begin to calm herself. Mostly she just pressed her eyes shut and willed things to be better.

She snuggled into him, which was surprising. How had she warmed up to him so quickly? He really did not know what he had done to make her like him. Nomad lay there and simply remained quiet, lying his head on top of her back and ruffling some fur on her back with his breath. He didn’t think talking now would help anything. Let her stop crying, and once she did, he guessed he would ask her again what she wanted to eat.

Settled against him she began to calm. The reassuring weight of his head across her back helped her feel safe. She nuzzled more slowly at his fur as her heart slowed and was no longer pounding in her chest.

The girl sniffled a last few times and wiped her cheeks against him to rid herself of her tears. She was still hungry, tired, sore, and missing her family, but she no longer felt so frantically anxious about it all.

Nomad still just laid there, and sighed softly. He would wait until she moved, or said anything. Though he doubted the latter would happen.
