The summer was at its end, but it was still pretty dang hot. So Gull had woken early and headed to the ocean. She hadn’t had a proper swim since she’d been back. The sand beneath her paws felt so right, and as it started to grow wet, the energy behind her walk intensified until she was running like a wild child straight for the water with a wide grin.
It went spraying every direction, and she knew well enough to close her eyes, stop breathing for a second, and shut that wide grin. But when it settled and she could feel the waves slapping against the top of her legs, she opened her eyes and pushed forward until it was just above her chest, rocking her back and forth gently.
The smell was heaven, salt and brine reminding her so much of the home she’d been away from for far too long. This was pure bliss. She closed her eyes again and just let the waves lull her into a deep calm. If she could stay in her forever, she might just turn into a fish and swim away for a while, returning as a wolf to visit her family on occasion. No, she’d not leave them again, but it was a fun thought.
