[summons] calling Ata, maybe still slightly backdated, backdate all the things

It was about time to head home, Kaete figured. She had been gone a little longer than she meant to (somehow), she had helped the Evergreen wolves for a while, they didn’t seem to be doing as badly as she feared, and she had even explored the surrounding areas a little. But it was time to move on. There were more tasks that needed to be done elsewhere.

There was only one thing holding her back. A thing called Ata. What to do with him? Was he going to follow her home, or would they part ways? She could foresee some awkwardness if he did come back with her. For one thing, there was the part where she had told him all about the evils of Bucky and Saskia, and he might meet them.

And what happened after that? She hoped to have time to go on another trip, though probably a shorter one. To the mountains, or just farther across the range than she usually went while hunting, or something. She wanted to be alone this time, not slowed down by anyone. Still searching.

Kaete had convinced herself by now that true love had to happen pretty much instantly when she met someone (you know, like how it happened for everyone else), or it wasn’t going to happen at all. There simply wasn’t time. There had to at least be some kind of mutual attraction from the start. Therefore, she didn’t think Ata could be the one.

She would have to tell him of her goals, and explain this to him if he asked, because, at best, he could be a friend, like a Nomad 2.0, and he could help her find another guy who was not him. Or, he may take offense to the fact that she didn’t consider him an option, or just plain be weirded out by how important this was to her, and it may change his mind about wanting to stay around her.

“Ataaa?” He was around here somewhere, she thought. The clearing was a nice place, it was good to see the sky, though it wasn’t very sunny or warm this morning. When would the clouds start bringing snow instead of rain?

For the most part, while Kaete helped out with whatever the evergreen wolves needed, he kept his distance. He didn’t want to exactly bother as she helped as he was pretty useless since he knew how to hunt at best and mainly just survive on his own and not with a pack.

Ata was laying down in the forest. In a spot where the sun slightly beamed through the trees. He peeked his hears at the sound of his name, it was Kaete. Maybe he can figure out what to do with his life. The idea of maybe not being alone anymore sounded nice. A mate of sorts… but was Kaete even the one? It’s not that she wasn’t exactly pretty cause to him she was pretty cute. It was just the fact about their personalities didn’t exactly click for a hot minute. But maybe they do now? A serious Ata, hard to do. He likes having some fun once and a while and He felt like Kaete didn’t have it…

Maybe he could try to actually have fun with her. Since he really hasn’t tried yet. Though as he remembered. He hears his name being called. So he stood up and headed towards the distance noise. And once he was there he tilted his head a bit at Kaete. And tried to think of maybe something to hint her with. “Yes, love?” Yeah. That’s awkward…

Uh. ‘Love’? Was that some kind of weird joke, or was that just how Ata talked and he called everyone love? Either way, Kaete didn’t think she liked it. The word ‘love’ should not be used lightly. It only reminded her of bad things… it mocked her, that word.

She raised a brow, both confused and unamused. “Well, darling,” she returned sarcastically. “I just wanted to say that I’ll be going back home to my pack soon, and I wanted to know if you were planning to come with me or what.” Gosh, this already felt a little awkward. It was only going to get worse, whatever his answer was.

Was she trying to come back with like, the same idea as him? Or was she simply being sarcastic? It sounded a bit more sarcastic, but the awkwardness about it made him not really want to do it again. He will ignore it for now but he did listen to her words about returning to the pack. Should he go?

That was a bit of a tough decision… she had told him these things about the pack and how the leader was and all of that… but maybe she was making it worse than it was because she did used to like that guy. Oh well. She’s a good friend so far, so maybe he should stick with her for now.

“I mean…. I guess I could. He first stated, and then paused for a moment before emphasizing the next bit. “IF you want me too.”

He didn’t seem that sure about it. Kaete honestly hadn’t thought much about whether she wanted him to come or not, figuring that it would all be up to him. It was unexpected, for her opinion to matter. But she didn’t think she really… had much of an opinion. “Well… I don’t mind too much either way. I mean…” Okay, that might sound mean, that she didn’t care whether he was there or not. But… she just… kind of… didn’t.

Her mind was focused on one goal, and everyone and everything else was disposable, right now. It was the way it had to be. She couldn’t achieve anything by spending time on others. She had already spent over a year on helping others, and it got her nothing, and she always ended up being just as disposable to them. Maybe later, after things settled down, then she could care.

“You’ve been good company. And we’ve had a lot of packmates leave lately, so we could use someone else around to help for a while. And I could always use someone else to listen to me.” She went back and forth between personal and practical reasons. Though really, she didn’t think that ‘someone to listen’ was the kind of help she needed anymore. “But if you would rather go do something else, that would be fine too.”

Ata shrugged a bit to what she first stated. He didn’t really have a comment to respond with it, so he listened into what she had to say next and nodded a bit. “You have been too, and that does sound a bit bad. Not sure how much help I truly am though.” he responded and thought around for a moment, but really didn’t have much else to say to her.

“Even if it’s just a little hunting, I’m sure you could help somehow.” Or maybe he could just be there to scare off intruders. Not that he was scary really, but sometimes just having more numbers would be enough to keep troublemakers away. And if they had more wolves at home, they would be that much closer to being able to send out patrols again, depending how long he stayed…

Kaete was stalling though. She had to say the rest of it, since so far it sounded like she wasn’t getting rid of him yet. Her anxiety started to grow as she wondered how she would explain it all. “I… uh… I don’t know what’ll happen after that though. I wasn’t going to stay home long, I kind of wanted to go on another trip, but I… I might want to be alone for that one. So I don’t know if you want to… wait for me, ooor…” Okay, she was still stalling. Maybe he wouldn’t ask about it. It wouldn’t make much difference though. She would still have to say it.

Ata nodded about how he could probably help out the pack but he still wasn’t very sure about it… It almost seemed like he would just be in the way of the things they were doing, so maybe the pack wasn’t the best place for him, at least that one.

“Ah..” Was all he mustered out about her suggesting that she might have wanted to be alone for the next trip she did. He wouldn’t mind staying with her, he was sort of starting to get used to her… maybe she would change her mind eventually and stuff can happen. Family? Ehh, maybe? He didn’t know though.

He didn’t have much to say about that either. It was hard to guess what he was thinking. Maybe none of it really mattered much to him either… maybe he didn’t care either way, just like her. Would he still shrug it off when she spelled out the whole thing? Kaete sat down slowly and looked at the ground, watching the grass sway in the breeze as she tried to break past the embarrassment and just say it.

“I… I have to admit something. Um. You remember when we were talking about… what would make me happy? What I want in life? Well, really, I… I always kind of wanted to find a mate and have a family too… So… so I’m looking, you know. Looking for males who might be interested.” Which didn’t seem to be Ata. So he shouldn’t have a problem, right?

“Trying to find one by winter. So that’s why I want to keep traveling. So… yeah…” Would he have anything more to say about that? Was any of this making sense? Was she being weird?
