Kaya and Pepper had spent the evening camping out by their kill. Kaya had brought a leg back with her, but once they were back on the island she left it neatly upon a rock to shake off then roll dry in the sand. She then shook off again. She was a fit, active she-wolf, but it was still winter and she wasn’t foolish enough to wander around with chilly water dropping off of her.

“Let’s visit the cache first.” She told Pepper, placing a paw on the leg she had brought from the deer. “We can drop this off. You can see the beach here, we keep the rocks above the tideline scent marked. Here or the south beach are the main points of contacts rogues will trespass.”

Until he knew differently, Pepper would do anything Kaya was doing, and like her, grabbed a large portion of the deer to carry back. The swim was long and somewhat difficult while carrying a few pounds of meat, but not impossible. He managed to make land without being too tired for the most part. The salt was strong and sort of bitter, but it wasn’t terrible.

He left his chunk of food next to hers, following her lead and drying off in the sand as well. The thought of an island for territory was exciting. Physical borders could be useful.

“What’s the stance on trespassers?” They were things he had never been fond of.

Kaya wrinkled her upper lip just slightly.

“I expect all visitors to this island to announce themselves and proceed no further than the beach, as it’s obvious the place is claimed.” She began, lofty as ever. “Anyone with a legitimate reason to be here… there are a few wolves Crixus knows that have dropped by, potential recruits I expect… will be tolerated for as long as they remember their manners. I’ve got no problems with lethal force against trespassers who show no regret though. If they do not live to spread rumours, we have no problem, do we?”

He listened patiently to her explanation. It was reasonable enough—a little lenient, actually, but not dumb. As for her last statement, the logic seemed sound enough.

“No, ma’am, we don’t,” he assured her with a grin.

Kaya smiled toothily back at Pepper. She was liking him more and more with each passing comment. She trotted onwards, heading towards the spring.

“Here is out fresh water source.” She revealed when they arrived, heading over to lap a few mouthfuls after their journey. “The cache is just over there.” She nodded. They could circle back and put the deer they’d brought in, once she’d finished showing Pepper around.

A spring. He meant to ask about water. Something told him the salty water wasn’t for drinking.

He drank some for himself, realizing he was thirtstier than he thought. He then raised his head to see where Kaya was talking about.

”Can we drink the water surrounding us?”

Kaya sat back on her haunches, waiting until he was done drinking before nodding in the direction she intended to show him next.

“Only if you wish to make yourself ill.” She advised. “It has salt in it, it isn’t fresh like groundwater.” She was appreciative of the spring that allowed them to colonize this island in peace and safety, despite the impracticable factor of swimming to and fro. Kaya was well aware when the pack did grow… though she would not be adding to its numbers this year, she thought resentfully… they would need a secondary territory to claim, one on the mainland.

She rose to all fours once more, carrying on towards the south bank.

So, no. No drinking the salt water.

“Good to know,” he said in reply. Now he was more curious than anything. Ill was a vague term.

“What’s the Faction’s stance on healing plants?” His old pack strictly prohibited their use as they encouraged weakness. Pepper held nothing against them personally.

Kaya didn’t quite understand the question, but of course she naturally wasn’t going to admit that. She began walking towards the far side of the island, the south faces, to show Pepper around properly.

“We currently have no healer.” Kaya reported. “The other rank with no leadership role, Manica, will incorporate them when we recruit one. Please do not tell me you are dying, Pepper, it’s long term members the faction wants.”

Obviously they welcomed the concept if searching for a healer was on the agenda. Pepper wondered how that all played out, anyway. He’d only heard of the practice—never seen it in action.

“No, and I don’t plan on it any time soon.” He hoped his death would be from something honorable as opposed to a lengthy process such as sickness. He was a lot of things, but a waste of resources was not one.

“What else should I know?”

Well that was a relief. “Glad to hear it.” Kaya put in. “Well, to catch you up with latest events. Larisa, the mate of the leader, Crixus, has deserted the pack. Mental breakdown it seems, she’s completely lost whatever semblance she had on reality in the first place. She’s pregnant with his pups, so Crixus has of course gone after her with my own mate, Dragomir, to return her home. If Larisa thinks she can simply desert with the future of our pack she is sadly mistaken.”

That explained why the place appeared so vacant.

“What’ll happen to her when she’s returned?”

Kaya debated on how much to trust the new boy with. At length, she shot Pepper a serious look.

“She must be punished, of course, but in my experience those who loose their minds rarely rediscover them. Though we must tread carefully given Dragomir is Larisa’s sister, and no undue pressure should be put upon him - those of unsound minds do so often meet with unfortunate accidents, have you noticed, Pepper?” She held his gaze meaningfully as she spoke.

He smiled callously at Kaya. Pepper held a paw in many accidents. It’d be no problem to continue that trend. Had he any place to do so, he would’ve voiced his feelings about the situation to Kaya.

“My heart aches for them, Miss Silvano.”

His smile said it all. Pepper was on board, an important ally against the strife that Larisa had caused. “Oh yes, mine too.” She smiled back a cruel, merciless sort of smile at Pepper.

“Come. Let us complete our tour.” She nodded to the new recruit for the pack, thinking how nice it was to finally have a worthy wolf to join the ranks after all the disappointments of the valley.

((Fade mate?))
