Epidemic snorted, only to calm a moment later. With his attention still rapt on the boy, Ross could only cast her a sidelong glance, but there was much confusion in his gaze.
Maybe this was what winter for females was like up close. Messed with their brains and stuff, made them act funny. He didn’t know; he’d never been around females when their condition struck.
That was a subject he did not want to linger on, so the entirety of his attention was returned to Auberon as introduced himself. Ross’ brows lifted ever so slightly to know he’d identified the boy’s scent correctly. He gave a subtle nod.
“Thought you smelled familiar. I know ‘em.” Well, he knew of the Evergreens, having only met one of their dead—but whatever.
Dead wolves were everywhere, right? Nothing to get hung up on.
He lapsed into silence then, looking to the cache and wishing to dig up a vole he knew he’d put in there recently. But doing so in front of a guest, only to take it and go to bed, was… awkward. Should he offer to help them chop up the deer and store it? Let Auberon take some back with him?
Fuck, this was why he didn’t do socializing. The bite on his ruff stung, as if it was fresh all over again. He sucked in a wobbly breath.
“Y’all… need help? With this.”
Maybe they’d say no and he could just leave and try to go to sleep.
