Placing her paw over the soil that packed in place of the opening, she began to dig with just a single paw - though, it was more like pushing the dirt out of the way. Once the corpses of the various squirrels and rabbits were revealed, she gently placed hers among them. After a moment, she lifted her head again and pushed the dirt upon it again. She didn’t mind hunting for the pack, it was the least she could do for their kindness and hospitality. Finally, she retreated before spinning around to meet Wayfarer’s gaze.

”So you think you got what it takes?” She released a soft, playful laugh. Standing up straight, the russet girl finally took her place beside him as if to support to process. Perhaps if Bucky saw them together, he would go easy. She had never trespassed before so she didn’t know if that, like, caused others to become immediately aggressive. Though, she could never really see Bucky that way.

”His name is Bucky, by the way.” She piped up before releasing a long howl, in hopes to capture his attention wherever he was

Kiel stood, his eyes running across the autumnal trees with lids wide. Such pretty colours surrounded him. He refused the gawk and as he lowered his head, he watched the small lady bury her finding, as delicate as it was, the scent of multiple corpses had risen in his nostrils. It made the act of dispensing another to the pile just a that little bit vile.

As she covered it back up, he removed his gaze, looking back at the world around him. He remained stuck in silence, his tail hanging limp between his hocks, his brows furrowed ever so slightly as he tried to focus on one particular spot. It wasn’t that it caught his attention, he was just trying to see what he could make out in detail whilst narrowing his perspective. He wasn’t really doing much beside trying to entertain himself.

Her movement shifted his eyes out of instinct, his head raising abruptly in order to take her in.  Her eyes held his and as she spoke, he peered down at her past his scarred muzzle. “Perhaps, I might need some kind of encouragement though” with a smirk and a husky purr, Kiel lowered his head to give the girl a coy, innocent smile that quickly changed back into that sly smirk he held before. It was cheeky sentence that could mean anything to anyone. It was neither a flirt nor a proposition. It was a jest, unless you took it seriously.

Withdrawing ever so slightly, he gave out a rich chuckle.

Bucky was the head honcho.

Bucky’s ears flicked at the call from Sienna. He was close to the gorge, and picked up a fast speed in order to cover the distance, but the openness of the oaks let him see where was a heft-sized dark male standing close to her. His eyes narrowed speculatively as he spotted her leaning close to say something to her, though he was too distant to hear what. Moments later the male pulled back from her.

Either Sienna made friends fast, this was somebody she knew, or it was just coming up to that time of year (which he’d been thinking about lately himself in all honesty). His nose picked up the scent of fresh food, cached as well by the scent of it - Sienna had been busy if she’d started a new cache out here, but it would be useful for Holly’s kids.

Okay Seinna, who had you invited (he hoped that was what had happened) into Ranger territory?

((Visible, but arriving properly next round))

It was rather beautiful, the trees were a mixture of bare and color, some leaves falling and some continuing to hold onto the branch for only a bit longer. But they were vibrant, the ones that decorated the forest floor and the ones that did stay - vibrant yellows and oranges and reds. Such a beautiful scenery, and one she had decided that would be her favorite within the upcoming months. There was no question in her mind about why Bucky had picked the area that he had for the Rangers.

Sunlight began to filter away the cloudiness, the warmth still dim and the bite of chilliness still prevalent, and eventually, as minutes passed, the only remaining feature of the previous shower was the water droplets falling from the overhead trees.

“Perhaps, I might need some kind of encouragement though.”

She snorted in amusement, propping an eyebrow up at him. She noticed now something that wasn’t there before - his scar on his cheek. Sienna decided to not comment on it. Just as she had been about to respond, another scent invaded her nostrils and she looked forward just in time to see the approaching mass of the pitch-black Bucky. “Look who’s not so big, strong and independent now, hotshot.” She grinned up at him before finally keeping her attention back on the approaching male. She wouldn’t speak until he got closer, so she reclined in a seated position and waited.

Turning his head to the wind, the man inhaled a scent that Sienna seemed to noticed before himself, taking a sitting position and growing quiet. He was distracted, out of sorts but he remained calm, his face slackening into something patient and ungiving. He refused to emote in front of those he didn’t know, no matter how much others spoke highly of them. So, as he turned to face the approaching male, he kept his head at a level that presented ease without being cocky and high or low and cautious.

He just watched and waited, settling into the silence amongst the dying corpses of the trees.

Bucky was already categorizing what he saw as he approached. Sienna was grinning and appeared totally at ease. The male didn’t seem to share her ready good humour, seeming impassive, and though he wasn’t presenting any dominant posturing nor did he extend any welcome or explanation as Bucky drew closer.

He recognized that mask, though. It was the sort of poker face he himself had almost perfected. And Bucky wondered, at once, what this pale-pawed male hid under his.

“Sienna, hi. Who’s your friend?” He nodded his head slightly to the other male, flexing his shoulders subtly as he drew to a complete halt. He was taller, though perhaps not heavier, than Bucky himself. And he owed him an explanation given he was inside the borders, though presumably Sienna had allowed him that.

There was a change in the mood almost immediately and her grin subtly faded at it. Wayfarer settled back into a silence that both gripped at her and had a comfortable skeptical nature about it. As Bucky approached, she let her ears perk up again as he questioned who Wayfarer was.

Presumably, he chose her to introduce him and Sienna looked between the two males for a moment, finally deciding to relax. “This is Wayfarer, a long-time friend that I’ve recently reunited with.” Short and to the point, Bucky didn’t need to know the knitty-gritty of it.

“He says he wants to find a suitable place for winter, and since you welcomed me with open arms, I never knew a more suitable place.” She continued.

Kiel gave the man a simple nod, allow Sienna her way with words before he himself would speak up. Bucky had spoken to her after all. He was large, though not like himself, it made his chest swell with pride in a way, still the fact that he stood over others. A sort of narcissistic feeling you could say.

As Sienna spoke, his brows furrowed ever so slightly, she told the man that he sought a place for the winter though he had never explicitly told her that himself. He supposed in a way, his words had been twisted in her mind. Never-the-less, he did not care, his face relaxing once more to that of the guarded facade he held before. Glancing over the man once again, Kiel shifted his weight, clearing his throat. “A wayfarer by trade, I don’t tend to the same spot for more than a few weeks.” his voice held an edge, non-threatening but definitely coarse.

“However… An ally is a powerful thing with the pending winter storms. Perhaps we could come to an agreement. I’m happy to earn my keep.” he gave a simple shrug, his chin lifting ever so lightly as he kept his eyes on the smaller man. Staying around meant he could stay with the brunette woman. Finally getting to know Sienna couldn’t be a bad thing either though, right?

Unfortunately, when the name was mentioned, Bucky put it together with a fair bit of nitty-gritty he knew already. It didn’t show on his face, the surprise, as he turned a speculative look on the big male. He made no signs of friendliness aside from the nod before he began speaking, but he wasn’t outwardly disrespectful.

No need to go accusing him of anything. He might after all, be a changed wolf.

“Well, we’ve kept a few guests previously, our territory’s certainly wide enough - we don’t impose any restrictions other than contributing pack life, earning your keep as you say, and behaving respectfully to other members and guests.” Bucky mentioned casually, not ready yet to offer an instant agreement given what he knew of the male.

He inclined his head to the dark male, both ears forwards. “Why don’t you tell me about yourself? What sort of things are important to you in a pack, Wayfarer - you also go by Kiel, I’ve heard?” He asked, blue eyes on the other male. He didn’t like the way he implied the Rangers needed help during winter storms. His pack might have lost some members recently, but that didn’t mean they were going to struggle.

Bucky was the one doing the favour here, not the other way around. And in his usual forthright way, he ddin’t hesitate in holding back that he already had some prior knowledge of the wolf standing in front of him.

There was a change in the way that Bucky spoke to Wayfarer, and it caused her eyebrows to scrunch together in thought. Was it because of the beginning of their raging hormones, perhaps? After all, Bucky had been welcoming towards her to begin with.

Wayfarer claimed to only want to stay for a few weeks, though, a few weeks were enough to pass through the wrath of winter. She hoped that he wouldn’t be stuck in its strength by the time he chose to leave.

Kiel.

A name she hadn’t heard before, and she peered up to Wayfarer with an inquisitive look. Though, she remained silent, only offering him a small, slighty affectionate nudge.

Keeping his face blank, he looked at the man. So he knew something, what that something was could be any manner of truths or rumours. Kiel kept his facade, however his levels of irritation were beginning to rise. There was something about Bucky that felt threatening to him, almost blackmailing him with his own name in order to get a reaction from its weight. However, he kept his mind level, his tone cool. “Ezekiel Lascrofe, if we are going for formalities. My sister and previous mate are the ones to use that name. Wayfarer is a name that I have picked up over the years” he gave a short nod, supplying a snippet of information.

Not a frown nor uneven tone was released into the open air and out on display for those to see, but he couldn’t help but see Bucky in a different light. He seemed… biased to whatever he’d heard.

“As for pack values? Equality and respect are preferable. Others can do what they are able.” he kept his gaze on the smaller male, watching and waiting for any movement or flicker of emotion. Kiel didn’t trust him, nor did he expect to be trusted back.

Bucky didn’t miss Sienna’s encouraging nod, and he worried briefly about the influence a wolf like this might hold over a fiery but still young and impressionable wolf. He was reminded strongly of Leas for a moment.

But, Wayfarer didn’t fly at his throat for knowing something of his history, so he either wasn’t offended or just wasn’t stupid enough to have a go at a pack wolf on their own land. Either way, a good start if he wanted to stick around for a few weeks.

He felt like laughing when Wayfarer mentioned respect being important to him, though he contained the urge, not giving the watchful male much to go on by his traditional composed facial expression. He’d crossed Rangers borders and his manner didn’t yet show an ounce of respect, yet he expected it? Still, Bucky answered readily, without a trace of the irony he felt. “We each earn our own respect here, through hard work and willingness to cooperate.” He shot Sienna a warm look, his gaze going to the cache she had started here, letting her know he had noticed. “As for equality, we’re not big on dominance. No infighting, we all work together to fill caches and keep borders patrolled, as well as give aid to those wolves seeking lost family or friends.” He mentioned one of the main goals of the pack.

“And as mentioned, visitors are welcomed here, provided they take no offense to our values of loyalty, integrity and compassion.”

Ezekiel Lascrofe. She tilted her head slightly, before returning to a seated position. The feeling in the air was uncertain and fueled by biased opinions and feelings of being tired of forced misunderstandings. Ezekiel, she scanned her eyes across his frame. So his true name wasn’t Wayfarer, it seemed. The girl bit her lip. She wondered why he had chosen the title for himself.

Her yellow eyes fell upon Bucky’s after a moment as he began to explain how the pack ran; her tail waved behind her slowly at the recognition.

The girls attention soon fell back upon the situation at hand, and she sat up just a bit taller than before. Well, at least as tall she could be without seeming like she was trying to stretch herself out - she was beginning to come to terms that she would be this tiny for the rest of her life.

She watched silently.

The man simply nodded, leaving it at that with a bow of his chin. He meant no disrespect, he just wasn’t accustomed.

“Understood.”

Next to no response that time, with a single nod and a word offered. Understood. Did he, though?

“Well then Wayfarer. I’m sure if you’re interested in staying as a guest, Sienna can show you around.” He nodded to the dark-furred girl, making a mental note to see just how much of Wayfarer’s story she knew. He wasn’t going to give any more blessing than what he already had. “You can meet some of the other pack members, and I ask that you contribute to the cache given the cold season’s coming up, nothing more.” Bucky knew freeloaders, and if he tried to be one, it would go down about as well as the last one had. 

“I am curious about something though, since I know Igbo Black lied to me about a few things, I just don’t know why. Do you mind if I ask a person question?”

Sienna felt just as awkward as the next guy. It was apparent that Bucky didn’t exactly approve of Wayfarer… er, Kiel and she wouldn’t have been surprised if she heard that while she wasn’t there, Bucky wouldn’t have accepted his stay at all. But he did, and she tossed a thankful smile his way.

Nodding as he included her in the conversation, her tail brushed against the leaves behind her. ”It would be my pleasure.” She mused lightly, looking up at Kiel halfway through her words. Though, it seemed he wasn’t done and Sienna took the hint.

“I’ll meet you outside the territory. We can go hunt something to bring to the pack, come find me when you’re done.” She leaned up to Kiel, nudging him lightly before turning away.
