It had seemed as if the valley held little for them, when they’d left.
Apparently, the lands beyond were no better. Worse, even. So it was with slinking, skulking gait that Briar trotted weaving through the desert, following the line of the foul-tasting creek so as not to get her stupid ass lost.
Of course, she had Dhracia with her. Darling, delicious, delightfully and disarmingly disturbing Dhracia. She could get lost, so long as it was with her. Because likely, the bigger female would pull her out of whatever shittastic situation Briar could find herself in. But also she might get her into such situations, and that was always a concern in the back of her mind.
At least she made up for it in other ways.
The sky was bleak, a cloudy expanse that stretched out seemingly endlessly before them- but Briar knew that eventually, this snaking waterway would lead them to the hills, and from there, the valley was theirs to explore. Her nose twitched in anticipation and she turned her head to see the tawny shewolf at her side, then swerved purposefully into her to bump her shoulder.
