There really wasn’t anything in particular that had drawn Palin towards the butte, but the scuttling sound that promised possible prey had been more than enough to convince him to follow his lead. Imagine his surprise, then, to find that it was all mostly mice, and nothing that would make up a good meal. “I guess I sorta walked into that one,” He couldn’t help but mumble, snorting in disappointment. As he watched the clouds from his breath billow up before dissipating, he stopped to think about what he should do next. While he shouldn’t really turn his nose up at food, he wasn’t exactly willing to waste his energy going after something that wouldn’t even make up for the energy he was going to use. That, and his paws weren’t small enough to catch the damn things. Really, why bother?
Stretching and feeling the comforting feeling of his muscles semi-relaxing, Palin took a second to look around. The distant sound of the river echoed in his ears, a slight distraction to the sight he was trying to behold. It was sort of pretty, in a way. It was almost indescribable, but considering the tom was more used to the rocky parts of Horizon, he could see himself getting used to this place. “Maybe I could settle down here for a bit, ya? ‘nough food to last at least a couple’a sunrises, ‘nd I’m sure there’s a good place to sleep somewhere around here.” The tip of his tail twitched, and the corners of his lips upturned in a hopeful smile. There was something about this place that made him curious, and it wasn’t overrun by a pack or pack-scent, so he wouldn’t have to worry about explaining himself.
Not that he had anything against packs, or anything! He just… Well, how was he to know if any were good enough for him? That’s right! He was certain that he, out of all wolves, was one of the greats! Not like he had trust issues or anything silly like that. No, obviously he wanted to test the waters. Not today, of course, he just wanted to find a place to chill. Probably. Definitely, yea.
