The day had come.

He moved casually, free within his own world. He had spent so long here, longer than he had than any other area, but now the time had come. Nima’s passing was evident and known, Elliot’s death was settled and confirmed. They were living in a system built by her, yet without her.

Standing by the riverside, he threw his head back and inhaled deeply before his breath sang true and clear into the crisp autumn afternoon for Tomas, Lapis, Abaeze, Naga and Tychus, Kopec and Amelia, Vitalis.

Lapis yawned as a howl rose up over the mountain. It was a meeting. The girl got up slowly… Taking her time with whatever was going on and made her way toward her father.

Was this the ceremony for the Daniels so they could finally crush all their necks? If so… Lapis wouldnt be sticking around… Winter or no winter.

The elegant child came over a hill and spotted her father. She held no expression… Cold… Distant. Once reaching Igbo she gave a silent nod and sat down.

Her sleep had a habit of being disturbed.

Ears laying flat across her head in effort to tune things out, she slept almost peacefully; well, as peaceful as it could get. She dreamed with an expression of her former self, a smile dancing loosely on her lips. Until a howl broke through the barriers of whatever dream had caused such a reaction. Muscles in her mouth returning to a neutral expression, a low growl rumbled out of her throat. Igbo, of course it was Igbo.

Perhaps she had dreamt of her mothers return, safe and sound, or perhaps she relived a memory of a simpler time. Whatever it was, it was easily forgotten and thrown behind her. Breathing in briskly, she finally released an annoyed sigh before moving to get up.

The sun was not as strong upon the mountain as it was down below, but the warmth it brought upon the slab of stone she had dozed upon gave her warmth that was rather rare. Despite the pools within the cavern that bubbled with steam and natural heat, it was nice to have a different source without actually getting wet.

Standing up, she finally made a ‘u’ curvature as she stretched, releasing a yawn that revealed all forty-two of her pearly white incisors. Shaking out her fur, finally she began to walk towards the summoning call.

Tomas could feel the hesitation, although he was rather confident that he was making the right choice in the means. It was why his body moved, and he could feel himself almost smelling the crisp water that was sweet.

After having spoken with Igbo, he felt unsurprised by the summons. The boldness, perhaps, of the location choice had been what brought him forward. It was a half hiss of air, and his eyes crossed about as he rounded the rim of the lake with a languid ease.

Lapis was already there, waiting, and the faint smile touched his lips. It suited him just fine to see the girl vying for attention, but her demanding nature did not go unnoticed. She thought herself different from the Daniels; but she was not. Not when Tomas looked at her, rigid and wanting all the same.

Exhaling, he could only imagine how this was going to do.

A soft chuff to the Blacks, tail swaying. This was necessary.

The call wasn’t as comforting as the last one had been, nonetheless, she drifted her way with the thought of seeing her family. Already, the fur slightly bristled upon the stop of her back with the nerves - it had been, well. She couldn’t even say that it had been since her mother had been pronounced dead. That had been one meeting Amelia had fled from, no blinders about that.

But now, stubbornly, she held her head high. She spotted Tomas moving in with a flick of the ear to acknowledge him, but her eyes were drawn with bemusement toward the black wolves waiting. Without Kopec there, she warned herself about speaking too loudly.

The Daniels might’ve been standing strong together, and pack might’ve been second, but she still very much loved her Igbo. Enough that he ranked high enough to be blood. It was why, in worry, she knew that there was a risk that things could get ugly.

She didn’t want that. She really, really did not desire such things.

The howl of a Hellmaw wolf rarely came with tides of good news. Rather, a gathering had come to herald tragedy and vitriol amidst their dwindling ranks. Hawkish gold eyes looked towards the call - Igbo summoned them now. Naga did not take off at once this time - she lingered, wary to hear his words and weary of mind.

A dark figure walked into view in the distance, headed towards the Lake. Kopec.

Naga hustled from her place to catch up and join at her side, a low woof emanating to warn of her approach. She slid smoothly along the dark fur to nip affectionately at the left ear and veered away to give some ample space.

“Why could Black be calling now, hm sister?” she queried with tangible notes of irony at the beginning that leveled off to genuine unease towards the end.

Please assume that Abaeze has been around, although he has not participated in any threads as of late! I somehow became incredibly busy and am finally able to catch up!
<hr>

The call of his father pulled him from his activity, whirling his head in the direction it’d come from. His brows previously furrowed, lips drawn tight and thin, Abaeze Ebo had been inspecting a rock that lay just a foot stretch from the shoreline. It had sunk itself in the water quite a long time ago, before the boy had been alive, and he was sure it had been there before his father had been alive. It was much unlike the rocks that collected the shoreline together. This one was smooth, cold, weathered. Each tiny pebble was its own unique color, shape and size. The rock he was studying was as if the pebbles had melded together and worn out- one big size, a watercolor of shades, where one blended into the next and Abaeze could not find where one began and ended.

Abandoning his research, swearing on his life to return to further inspect it, he turned his body fully towards the direction of the sound and began to track it down.

arriving in one round (roughly)!

For those who are late joiners because of personal schedules, I am fine with your characters listening in on what Igbo has to say in order to keep things follow IF that is applicable to your character c: !

His daughter sat by his side and Igbo inhaled the anxious air. The father moved to give her a light bump on the shoulder before the others came. Lapis was a part of the foundation too. One could be confident and one could lead. He had done so without the title, but the rest needed to understand. Nima’s death shifted a change in behavior, the dynamic between everyone had changed, and it needed to be addressed.

The short man nodded to Tomas and gave a smile to Amelia, before turning his attention to the arriving pack members.

It would not be too bad.

The girl felt her muscles stiffen as Igbo leaned over to bump her. Of course he acted this way in public. What would have been better was if he called for her to spend personal time with. It was just propaganda to her.

Lapis kept an expressionless visage. Amber eyes watched as the whole Empire came. The only wolf that brought a smile from her was Abaeze. He was her favorite by far.

As the girl began to walk, she kept her head low, a favored position. She did not appear to be particularly interested in the subject, she appeared to want to get it done and over with. Kopec had gone quiet on the constant want to be dominant, she looked from afar, not particularly eager to want to see what was going on, but instead zeroing in on any mistake or wrong judgement the know-it-all did. There was an annoyed silence that radiated off of her, he had been at their ass consistently, even abandoning his own children in favor of those who did not share his blood.

The thought disgusted her. 

But she would keep her thoughts to herself, consistently there, silently judging. As she grew older, she was beginning to understand that she didn’t need to like the wolves to live with them. At the sounds of clicking nails against the stone of the mountain, her ear pivoted towards the direction before looking. A shade of brown, tans and blacks met her peripheral vision and the scent was a telltale sign who dared to become all touchy-nosey with her. Naga.

A small smirk eventually drifted onto her lips at the affectionate touch, and she slowed her pace briefly to give her sister a lick upon her head. An irritated grumble vibrated in her throat. Rolling her shoulders, she returned to her previous pace.  ”Perhaps he’s trying to rally the others together in a piss-poor attempt of unity.” She breathed out in feigned amusement.

As they continued to walk, the figures of others became ever apparent. The two Blacks were seated next to each other besides the lake’s edge and her eyes followed the silhouettes of Amelia, to Tomas, Abaeze, Lapis and finally to Igbo. Tearing her intense stare away, she finally breathed in and slowed her pace down. Whatever it was called for, could wait.

arriving in one round, her words are not able to be heard from anyone but Naga.

Amelia could feel the tension that was strung through her body like the opening, haunting lines of a sharp-spoken ballad. The girl didn’t even begin to admit her wariness about being in a group, hearing differentiating opinions that would ultimately leave them feeling off the center of their own balances.

Her gaze rose to meet Igbo’s, aware that Lapis had only glowered her way; she offered a smile, although it was a vaguely stretched thin one. This was not her sort of environment to thrive in; she could open up and write beautiful poetry with her words if she desired. But not in front of others.

Feeling not exactly lost, but she drew her head higher. She was not as demanding as her siblings, but she was ever the label of the Daniels. She deserved to be here. These grounds were meant to be the Kingdom of her dreams.

Maybe someday.

Glancing to Tomas, Abaeze, she could only sigh. Wolves she didn’t spend much time with. Where was Vitalis? Where was -

Her eyes turned over her shoulder, and she yipped spotting her sisters in coming. A pang of longing swept her, but she held her tongue further.

As he drew near, his eyes flicked over the lot that had gathered. Amusement tickled him, although only just. Igbo was the brave one, calling the meeting and missing the ensuring wrath. It was a powerplay move, and one the Daniels would likely not take well to.

He sat apart from most of them, somewhere between the Black siblings and Amelia, to whom he gave a charming grin in a fleeting glance. “Miss Amelia.” The husky greeting was out of his mouth first, unsure of the requirements with the wanderer of the four Daniels. But then he turned his eyes to Lapis, and warmth tinted his gaze in fuller honesty. “Lapis, Abaeze. A pleasure to see you both.

His eyes turned to Igbo, and then he glanced out toward the incoming girls. Where was Tychus? The anxiety tweaked, although eventually seafoam eyes just settled on the choice of turning back to Igbo. Head cocked faintly, and he bobbed his head.

They could do this. Get through it without it turning into a bunch of whinging puppies.

Sorry for the wait! I’ve been super busy! I’m going to keep the thread rolling
—-

Igbo Black cleared his throat and turned to look at the approaching girls: Kopec and Naga. Black assumed that all could go well—yet he did not believed it would all unfold as he had planned. There came a point where he stopped and let the events take their natural course. Never had his own ideas followed through. The actors changed their dance to a different dance everyday, and what was little Igbo to do?

Tychus and Vitalis had not arrived. It unnerved him—Tychus’ rudeness and his inability to gather Vitalis closer. Attentive eyelids dripped over his cool amber eyes briefly before he awoke.

“Good evening everyone,” he pronounced clearly and loud for the others incoming,“I have a few announcements..” Igbo attempted to catch Tomas’ eye, he knew about one event, but did he know about the other?

Announcements.

Amelia could feel the faint marker of impatience with the thought of the group coming together for such things, but at least it wasn’t in mourning. No one was dead, and that was enough. While she tossed a polite smile back at Tomas, and her head nodded in understanding to Igbo -

Her eyes wandered, searching for her brother. Assessing the way her sisters closed in, feeling the pull of anxiety. Was there some kind of rule about being fashionably late to things that she had somehow missed? Or was it simply that continuing arrogance against Igbo for whatever sin he had committed?

Since there’s been little posts to this thread, I am going to continue with what Igbo had planned to say..

Igbo Black cleared his throat, ready to speak on new terms,“With Nima’s death, the spot of Empress is obviously empty—but, we are still remaining and will continue to do so. I find myself in the position to call those here in order to speak on terms of pack roles and duties. As previously stated by Nima, I was considered one of her ‘Proven’, but it does not simply apply to only me.”

He glanced around at the surrounding members.

“Tomas, has stayed with us and endured much of our hardships—despite not being able to know Nima for long. To me, he is family, and without a doubt a proven member—whatever that may come to mean in the future.”

“The children of the Hellmaw—Lapis, Abaeze, Kopec, Naga, and Amelia—you of all do not simply deserve the title of ‘unproven’. As youths, each and everyone one of you have gone through challenges that many your age will not experience. Each and everyone of you are resilient and brave.”

“The title as Loyal or Proven, previously granted by Nima, certainly extends on explaining that we do our best to ensure ourselves a future where we can find happiness and tranquility in the chaos we have faced. As I have attempted to do my best in keeping an order based on Nima’s trust in me, I wish to rearrange ourselves in a position where Tomas and I can direct, and we can all do our best for each ourselves and each other.”

It was not all he wanted to say, but it was one of the first things.

He was quick to enter the circle of the remainder of the Empire. As he neared, he could feel the eyes of the Nima children on him, or at least one in specific. He felt her surly gaze wherever he went, regardless if she was there too. A constant threat, a constant fire of rage. He loathed being in her presence since the day at the Cavern, a place he’d gone out of his way to avoid since its occurrence. He kept his gaze on his sister, her smile relieving some of the stress that clung to the air and had wrapped around his lungs.

Abaeze Ebo perched himself next to Lapis, brushing his shoulder against her flank in greeting as he came to rest. Tomas’ greeting relaxed him further, and the voice of his father soothed him as Papi spoke.

Igbo spoke of Nima, of her decision to charge them each with a stance on their loyalty to the pack, to her. The woman was a blip in his memory, a vague and foreign figure that sometimes appeared in the background of his dreams. Forever hovering in silence as if waiting to see the day they all proved themselves beyond her grave. It left him feeling haunted by the woman, even through the eyes of her children. They were a force to be reckoned with, and one that Abaeze wanted no part of.

Papi continued, announcing that neither him or Tomas, as well as the the collective youth, were far beyond their given title. That the whole group of them were worth more; deserving of more. He wanted to reorganize the pack’s titles and responsibilities, and Abaeze couldn’t help but beam up at his father in pride. Leaning over to his sister, in quiet and hushed words, he whispered into her cheek, “Father is quite the visionary.”

His amber gaze slowly shifted to flit between the Nima children, saving the wildest for last. The boy remained silent, brows furrowed, as he glanced between the four Nima children. What would they think of this? What would they say? Abaeze Ebo could only imagine Kopec’s rebuttle, almost certain this would wage yet another war between all of them.

If the Empire was in reform, did he truly want to be apart of it? His allegiance lay with his father, with his sister- even with Tomas. He only felt pity for the dead boy’s sister, and he avoided the Nima children at all cost. Home was a cold and empty place, he grew further detached from it’s lonely mountainside and ever-changing stream with each passing day. How far would Papi go to keep the lot of them together, and how would they manage with the Nima children defiant and disrespectful to everyone that wasn’t a Daniels?

Gulping down air, questions whirred a mile a minute in his head. Curling his tail around his paws, straightening his posture and pushing his paws against the familiar terrain of the rocky surface, he waited for the silence to break.
