Maybe she was nearby.
Maybe she had only run into a spot of trouble in getting her sister home, and it had delayed her.
Maybe she’d decided to leave him entirely. It seemed improbable.. but what if Narcissa had done something to her? Convinced her, or forced her, or otherwise made her abandon her mate and the cause and the pack and everything.
Crixus’ teeth flashed moodily at his own thoughts. His head was pounding, his muscles tense. Winter was coming, and Larisa had not yet come home.
“Larisa.” His voice was barely a huff of breath initially. He didn’t want to go calling into the night like some fucking idiot after his lost pet, but here he was, drenched in freezing seawater, sitting on the bay and waiting around. He never should have permitted her to go alone- he knew that now. Yet, at the same time, he was loathe to leave his Pearl unprotected. It was his.
He tossed back his head after some deliberation and sent a long, low howl into the sky, quavering at the end as the note was held long past the point of a usual call.
