Maya had been right - once AJ had got talking, the time flew.

It wasn’t long before the trees thinned around them and the grass petered out and eventually, they were left staring out at a vast expanse of nothing. Or, at least what looked like nothing, at first glance. Maya knew better. There were sizzling pools of water laying in wait for some poor unsuspecting wolf to come ambling along, and then they would erupt and try their damnedest to take off your tail.

Maya’s own tail wagged, a slow tick-tock at her rear, and she shot a grin at AJ. “Doesn’t look like much from here, but wait until we get further out.”

She couldn’t help but remember the last time - the first time - she’d been here. It was a little weird, being back here again. She kind of hated that some places in this valley were tainted by the ones who’d left her. If only she could detach herself well enough that they didn’t bring back memories - that would be ideal. It’d been one of the first things she’d seen in the valley and one of the first places she’d met someone new. Her thoughts tried to flicker back to Loki but she did her best to push them away. Instead, she flicked a glance at AJ, motioned her head out towards the geysers and set off. “Don’t get to close to um,” Maya said, genuine caution and just a smidgen of amusement trickling into the words.

She hoped the geysers were active today.

It had been a good trip, with nobody from the forest pack bothering them, but AJ looked thrilled to have arrived. Energy all but crackled from his fur as he pranced around, tail waving, and yipped impatiently when Maya said it would get better further out. “Then what are we waiting for!” He whooped, and took off, zooming away in big crazy strides, veering from one side to another as he ran, shaking off some of his high energy.

“Got it!” He hollered over his shoulder in belated reply to Maya’s warning not to get too close. Spotting a jet of steam he crowed loudly. “Maya I got one, ooooh look!” A tiny little spout of water emerged, steam billowing around it. AJ pranced up as close as he dared, even though the spout presently only reached his knees. There was a lot of steam billowing out though, and he danced around and barked several times in glee while he waited to see if would get any bigger.

“THIS IS AWESOME!”

Of course AJ would react like an excited puppy, this was AJ. She snorted when he bolted, a bark of laughter following as she put the petal to the medal and followed after, hot on his trail. It was easy for forget the negative thoughts that had tried to creep in when AJ got so damn excited over hot water.

She let loose a cackle and she neared, paws dancing clear of the steam. “It’ll getcha if you stay too close!</b> Maya laughed, dancing back as the geyser grew taller, angrier. That meant it was gonna explode, right? She couldn’t remember what set them off, really. She just remembered one scaring the bajesus out of her and almost taking her tail off.

Just wait till it explodes!” Erupt might have been a better word, but explode totally fit what they did, lots more.

Maya slipped back from the steaming vent, and AJ zoomed around it and bounded over to her, the teasing glint in his dark eyes the only warning before he flung himself at Maya in a full body tackle, literally trying to cover her smaller frame with his.

“Aww, don’t be scared Maya, I’m here to protect you!” He boomed, the grand effect ruined somewhat by the laughter threatening his voice. The vent not far from them began to hiss faintly. Ooooh, it was going to explode! AJ wasn’t worried though as he grappled with his friend. Maya had already moved to a respectable distance.

See. Maya should have known he’d go and tackle her over her taunts, but she’d been so dang focused on avoiding the geysers, she didn’t think she needed to keep her eye open for impending AJ tackles. So she screeched, rightfully so, when AJ pounced. She realized what happened just after he collided and sent her sprawling, and her screeching turned playfully aggravated.

Over all her ruckus, she still caught the faint hissing from the vent nearby and she stilled, eyes narrowing as she turned her gaze towards the geyser. Her eyes widened, just a little, and she batted at AJ and tried to shimmy away. “AJ IT’S GONNA ESPLODE LEMME UP.” And then. “DON’T MAKE ME LICK YOUR FACE AGAIN,” because it was the biggest threat she could up with with the impending geyser explosion.

It might have occurred to her, just a bit, that they were a safe distance from the hissing geyser.

But where was the fun in that? She would take any excuse to threaten AJ with a tongue full of slobber to the face.

AJ snorfed with laughter as he tried to stop Maya was slithering out under him like a furry reptile. She put on a show of being worried, but he heroicly tried to plant a forepaw on her chest to keep her in place. “Don’t worry, I’ll take the hit for you!” he barked boldly, tail still wildly wagging. She threatened him with face licks and he lifted his head, striking a noble pose.

“Is that any way to thank your heroic rescuer?”

All her squirming and wailing was all for naught. AJ planted a paw right smack dab in the middle of her chest, and she was stuck. She tried to glare but she couldn’t sober herself through all the laughter so instead she just snapped her teeth at AJs paw, “You can’t protect me from hot water, you dweeb!” a wail between snapping teeth. If she could latch on, she would roll and try and take AJ down.

She could show him who the heck was boss if only he was on her level.

AJ laughed freely, feeling a play-bite close over his paw as he pinned her. She rolled, and he went with her willingly, so she didn’t maul his foot off, collapsing obligingly on his side and worrying at her with his teeth, growling wound-up laughing growls the whole time.

HAHA, SHE GOT HIM! AJ went down easy and Maya grinned, triumphant. He didn’t have a lot to say now, so she just gnawed on his foot for a moment, eyes shining in mischief. Once he was sprawled on the ground she let his foot loose and scrambled to flop herself bodily across his shoulders, tail wagging wildly. Maybe she could slap him in the face a few times with the fluffy appendage while she was at it.

Not so heroic now, are ya?”

Maya smacked him in the face with her tail and he promptly made a grab at it with his teeth. He didn’t seem at all bothered by Maya pinning his shoulders - her weight wasn’t all that much.

“I’m always heroic.” He smothered the words with a grin. But his attention returned to the geyser when it erupted in earnest, shooting a jet of spray ten feet high. “WOAH check it!” He was half laughing and half in awe.

Teeth made contact with her poor precious tail and she squeaked, pulling her tail away from the onslaught of pointy bits.

Maya grinned, opened her mouth to shoot back - but the geyser choose that moment to erupt and Maya scrambled hastily away, belly to the ground, eyes wide. Even at their safe distance, it just wasn’t quite far enough away from all that steaming water. She crawled to a still pool, turned to face AJ and the angry geyser. “Yeah, it’s cool when it’s not trying to take off your tail,” She grumbled, grin still in place.

She shifted her attention to another geyser, this one still, calm. “Lookit this one,” a quick gesture of her head and she was belly crawling to the edge, peering down into the sleepy geyser as best she could. She remembered the first time she did this, peered over the edge into an endless depth - the story Loki told of what the geysers were. Not monsters, she knew that. But still, strange.

They were beautiful when still, almost just as much as when they were erupting water into the sky. The water was surprisingly blue, the surface calm and glassy. She shot a look at AJ to see if he’d come over, tail brushing across the ground in an endless wag.

((POINTY BITS))

AJ laughed when Maya pulled her tail back, acting all insulted, and grumbled with a grin about the geyser. But it was super cool with or without her complaining and he watched the water spout until she diverted his attention. He commando-crawled over to her in the most ridiculous fashion he could, hoping to make her laugh, tail up and waving.

“Your tail is safe with me.” He laughed as he settled at her side, shoulder touching hers, and draped his head over the ridge of the still geyser. “Wow, yeah!”

She’d looked back to see if he was coming along and he was. Crawling across the ground in the most ridiculous way he could. She snorted, grinning from ear to ear. She rolled her eyes, turned her attention back to the geyser as he made his way over and settled at her side.

She aimed her a nip at his ear. “Yeah, as long as you aren’t close to any hot water, maybe.” She hummed, then, contemplative. “This was the first place I stopped at when I got here. A wolf told me a monster lived in these things,” tone laced with mischief - making it obvious it had all been a joke. She hadn’t believed him - he hadn’t known any better than her what they were.

She remembered what he’d told her - and now here she was, once more, probably too close to a geyser that could erupt at any minute, face right in the line of fire as she peered down into it.

He let out a dramatic yowl as she seized his ear, pretending she was tugging his entire head and flopped it against her neck comically. But she let him go, and pointed out that getting too close to hot water wasn’t much fun.

He laughed as she mocked a wolf who’d told her a monster lived in the geysers. “Did a monster live up his ass as well?” He snorted crassly, amused as well. “I think they’re just cracks in the rock. You see geysers sometimes on the coast as well, only it’s waves that push them, and it’s seawater, not hot.”

Maya cackled through the brief hold she’d taken on his ear, tail thumping against the ground. When he moved to flop against her, Maya thought it would be a grand idea to try and gnaw on his entire head. Fitting the entire top of his head into her mouth might be hard, but she tried, laughter threatening the whole time.

Like the ear nip, it was brief contact, if she even managed. She pulled her head away either way, snorted at the retort. “Maybe,” Maya allowed. She shoved the thoughts of Loki away when AJ tried to explain the geysers, and her eyes fell back to the one she was perched near now.

She peered down into the depths, head cocked. “Where do you think it comes from though?” Because it obviously wasn’t the ocean and AJ seemed to actually know a bit about them. Maya didn’t have any real explanation for the weird pools - just that they were there, and they were kinda weird.

AJ lay passively enough as Maya chewed on his skull, not seeming to mind over much beyond a shove or two with a paw as he pondered the mysteries of geysers. “I’ve seen a couple of rivers vanish underground, and springs, you know that bubble up from underground? Maybe there’s an underground river under here.” His paw tapped the rock, and once Maya let his head go he placed an ear to the ground, listening for a minute as if he might be able to hear

“Don’t ask me how it gets hot, though. I’m not buying there’s a sun under the ground to warm it up.” He laughed.
