Time had passed since the two of them had left the safety of Isidore’s home, and while Sebastian could feel the intensity of their situation grow tirelessly on his bones, a feeling of excitement trumped it all. This was something Sunfall would have done, no doubt. It was something straight of the stories that his father would tell them as Sebastian and his siblings grew up. The story of Elliot and his kingdom, the pursuit in catching the terrible monster. On a whim, he had gathered a bunch of followers and with not much to go on besides the determination of justice—they had taken him down.
That same fiery determination seemed to snake through the blood and veins of the black sheep. He doubted they’d find anything, but still, the danger of the situation burned within his head nonetheless.
It was exciting, thrilling, but terrifying—all at the same time.
And finally, as the two of them entered the barren sweep of land before them, Sebastian’s eyes turned to glance towards Isidore. “I think we’re here,” he said beneath his breath, his tail softly swaying with the wind.
The dark brown mountains of hills and the like swept up overhead, towering over the two of them like some great gods as the subtle colors of green edged the sides. This was Fossil Butte, an area that he had only heard about in stories before. It was weird, coming from one place filled with green, life, and vegetation to something that was straight out of a desert. Boring, dark, and desolate within its reaches. He doubted, finally, that any wolf would stay here permanently.
Which really just added to the fact that no one was here.
Minus the dangers of the wolves within this valley, the land in the Butte was dangerous within itself.
His steps were careful as he moved forward, walking through the dirt and the sand slowly as if not to disturb the sense of death that he got as he entered the land. It was weird, he didn’t get any sense of life within its walls and instead only felt the uncomfortable feeling of sadness lay out before him. Sebastian glanced behind him, unsure if Isidore wanted to continue on or not.
