Ozias limped steadily around the lake. That morning he had awoken early, restless without Felicity to curl up beside for warm and reassurance, and managed to catch a slow pheasant which he had left for Gareth further south. He was determined to show everybody, from her to his mother, he wouldn’t be held back by his bad leg, which still ached and pained him on a regularly basis although the scabs had faded into healthy looking skin again. He has struck out further around the lake than he’d been before, sniffing hopefully after rabbit trails that wound through the trees. He had lost weight, given that he wasn’t very fast anymore and he’d been giving half of his catches to Gareth.

Ozi sighed when rabbit darted away from his lurching gait, well out of reach. He didn’t bother wasting energy chasing it. He was growing despondent again, even though seeing Effie had picked his spirits up. There had been no sign of Cian since Ozi had caught his scent in the meadow. Plus Felicity wasn’t back yet, and Gareth wasn’t exactly a fantastic conversationalist.

Maybe he ought to head for his mother’s pack - but he wanted to wait a few more days for Felicity before going anywhere without her.

It simply wasn’t in Harper’s blood to linger in one place for too long. His ever restless paws carried him down from the mountains and along the river for miles until it finally forked. He continued to follow it south and spent many days blissfully lost among the rolling, wide open praries. Gradually, the scent of other wolves grew stronger, putting a certain bounce into Harper’s steady lope.

The life of a nomad was never dull, but it did get oh-so lonely. Maybe he would finally find a traveling companion — or two, or three, or ten — to fill the gaping hole in his heart. Or maybe, just maybe, he’d even find himself in the throes of lust, filling her gaping hole—

A flash of something small and furry tore him away from his definitely PG thoughts. Ever the opportunist, Harper took off after it without hesitation, easily crushing it’s brittle haunches between his teeth.

Vicodin weaved through the pillars and constant supply of vegetation. His mind was thick with the worry of what he was doing with himself and whether Xaryus or Goblin were going to return to him. He wished for his haven to be his home, whether he would share it with others would remain a big underlying question however.

The trees surrounding him were different then that of the evergreens he was used to seeing. They were large at the base and went on for miles into the sky - slight exaggeration. He would often find himself pausing as a stump, inhaling the scents that it was coated with and then rub himself on it. A big “I’M HERE” so all those wandering through. It was rather dense though.

The screams of a rabbit, a flurry of action.

Vicodin raised himself from his latest conquest of marking a tree and took a deeeeeep inhale. Harper. A scent he recognised. Another lay there also but… It was uniquely unfamiliar to him. More friends to make - maybe.

Ozias blinked sadly when the rabbit he’d been too slow to nab darted towards another wolf he hadn’t noticed - who turned around and killed it with the sort of ease Ozias once managed. “Nice catch.” He called out with a half-hearted smile, though he was polite enough to start to limp a wide enough circle around the other male - wow, check out his eyes! - to indicate that he was not a threat to the guy’s catch.

He didn’t even notice the second male incoming from a different direction (somehow, because he also had mismatched eyes and oh yeah, was enormous) so let’s chalk Ozi up to ‘highly unobservant when moping about a girl’.

The scent of fresh blood cloyed at his senses, and his gaze was glued to his catch, but once its screams faded from the air Harper heard a stranger call out to him. The wolf was tall and slight with dark fur and pretty blue eyes. Excitement bubbled in his chest for a brief moment and his tail picked up a steady wag until the other male began to skirt a wide circle around him. He moved with an obvious limp, and Harper finally noticed the bald patch of skin on his leg.

Shame. Harper liked his men (and women) with a bit more meat on them, anyhow.

His expression was pleasant enough as he let the rabbit slip from his jaws, but his tail hung limp at his heels. It wasn’t quite dead yet, but with a shattered pelvis it definitely wasn’t going anywhere anytime soon. “Apologizes if you’d been tracking it, but you know what they say: survival of the fittest,” he woofed back with a wide, bloody grin.

He hadn’t been noticed.

Good.

With that he lowered his being, slinking away through the thickened undergrowth.

Ozias politely wagged back at the other male, standing back with some distance between them with a small but friendly smile.

“No, it’s fine. I mean, it’s not hard to be quicker than me right now.” He joked around a bit, but there was clear regret in his teal eyes.

He heard a heavy pawstep from behind them somewhere and looked over his shoulder, wondering if he’d seen a flash of fur. “Excuse me, are you here hunting with somebody?” He asked, a note of worry in his voice, unconsciously lifting his injured leg a little. Last time somebody had been stealthy around him in a forest that leg got mangled…

His ear flicked idly in the direction of something big and hulking skittering through the trees, but otherwise he didn’t pay it any mind. If whoever that was skulking about wanted to participate then they could damn well speak up or fuck off. Harper wasn’t afraid of an ambush, though he couldn’t exactly say the same for the other guy.

Lifting his snout to the air, Harper let the scents of the forest waft past his nose until he hit on he recognized. ”Vicodin,” he mused aloud. Perhaps those roots had yet to really sink their teeth in. ”Lives closer to the base of the mountains.”

Skittish, lame, and clearly lacking in self-confidence. Harper foresaw an unfortunate outcome for the poor twink. ”Trust me, if we’d wanted to ambush you, you’d be dead already.”

Vicodin? Was that a name? Uh, weird, and this was coming from a guy named Ozias. But he didn’t want to speak up and insult his… friend?

Uh, that was insulting, what terrible manners. Ozias felt himself getting a bit indignant. But he didn’t show it, just sighed and moved onwards. He didn’t want a fight - he never did.

“Well, I won’t interrupt your meal further, sir.” He excused himself politely.

Hm. Harper kept his mouth shut as the cripple excused himself and limped off. It’d be easy to put him out of his misery right then and there, but he was feeling particularly generous today. His life was bound to be tragically short, anyway. Harper would give him a month, tops.

Wordlessly, he bent down to close his jaws around the twitching lump of fur and went on his merry way.
