There was an odd sort of contentment for Ash in coming to the mountains. His step even looked lighter, and he glowered less, though that could also have been due to having all his siblings back together - and Aunt Star too. He might have not been the talkative type and regarded many wolves with suspicion, but even Ash at heart enjoyed company. Not that he’d admit that.
They’d traveled relatively slowly, Ash enjoying the challenge of hunting in new places. Well not totally new - this wasn’t his first trip here, though this trip was very different to the time with Pierre, Bayley and Percy.
It was a cold, clear winter’s morning as he trekked the way up the mountainside to the basin’s entrance, and he really felt, for once - optimistic. This was their fresh start. Things would be different in the mountains. Ash glanced back at his family once he reached the northernmost borders, then lifted his muzzle to howl.
They were here.
((Just gonna be vague about who is here or lagging behind until everyone posts and decides for themselves, I know there was talk about Star following later, but then all the kids stayed a day extra anyway so - assuming the siblings and Star are here BUT anyone roll in and work it how they want, no stress.
Loose posting order is fine))
