Finch had gone a ways from the den, and now she howled.

She had found the perfect spot to resettle them. She was worried that moving Tempest Isla would just upset whatever it was that ailed the girl, but it was clear she was not getting better with rest.  Maybe moving was the solution. Maybe Tempest just needed more room to grow. So she stood near a blackberry bush she had found, with a wide and dipping area for them to convene at. A new home, with more space for seriously huge pups to grow even more in.

It seemed just yesterday they hadn’t even been an idea to her, but now…

They were real, and they were catching up to the size of their parents with alarming speed.

Besides all this, Tempest had begun roaming more on her own, and Finch didn’t want to hold her back.  She didn’t have enough fear to try and mold her daughter as her own parents had molded her.  She wanted Tempest to be herself, and if that meant simply powering through her illness… Well, Finch wouldn’t coddle her forever, despite protective maternal instincts.

She sat as soon as her howl died down, and wondered if her pups would heed her. She just needed to show them where to meet the family now, and hopefully make sure all was well with each of them. She saw them less, these days, and that struck her as amusing.  They had such individual spirits.

Scrip. scritch, scratch. Shift, shoof, shuff. Huff, hiff- howl?

Gale’s head perked up from the ditch he was half-suspended down into. His lower half was crouched, belly barely brushing the earth, legs tensed. Upper half was slanted downward, forelegs outstretched into a hole that nearly compared to their length in depth. Paws muddied, claws clumped with dirt, Gale paused his digging for the first time all morning.

He felt a flicker of frustration to be so rudely interrupted, But he knew that voice like the skin on his nose. It was Ma. Calling from not far off at all. Ma hardly ever called like that. He couldn’t remember last time she did. Maybe when he was smaller and had wandered a little further than he should have from the den. But this was different. It wasn’t coming from the den, and it didn’t sound like he was in any sort of trouble.

He was inclined to abandon his hole for today. Maybe he would come back with Sif to enlist her help unearthing the rest of the big rock he’d come across some other time. For now, Ma was the most important. So with a huff, he clambored backward out of the hole, and started off in Ma’s direction. Letting out a few whooping calls of his own, he let her know he was close.

A howl, from momma. Of course, Scott was on his paws in no time, making his way over to his momma to see her. Because, when momma howled for them she needed to tell them something important, right? Of course! Momma never called for nothing! Scott came bouncing over a little hill, tail wagging behind him. He let out some barks and yips. He was coming. He just needed to find momma, first.

Mommy.

Tempest’s reaction to the howl was immediate.

Quelling the nervous fear at being left behind, she immediately sprinted, as much as a young puppy could sprint, for the source of her mother’s voice. She’d return to the den only to find nobody there, and immediately panicked and been ready to break into wailing tears. It was all her fault. She had never considered that if she left, she might not have anything to come back to.

Now, lips a-tremble (and the rest of her body), Tempest had no breath to waste on crying back until she was practically plowing into Finch’s chest. “Mommy,” she mumbled into her fur.

It was Mummy.

Well, not his own, but the mother of his beautiful children. Perhaps she hadn’t been calling for him in particular, but Tobias would go, anyway. If it was something important, something concerning the children they so lovingly raised together, then he would like to be there. Not that he had any kinds of worries about what on earth Finch would say as, well, there was nothing to worry about.

Finch and he were rather open, so he felt no need to worry about anything.

Besides, the call came from somewhere that wasn’t the den, which made him think about the possibility of them moving the pups. It wasn’t like that idea was foreign to them—they had discussed it—so Tobias didn’t think it was an illogical leap to make.

Before long, he arrived at the scene with Finch. Tempest had arrived before him, but Gale and Scott weren’t there yet. Considering the return calls that he heard from Gale, he assumed that the male was on his way, and Scott would be here soon, no doubt. Therefore, there was no reason to panic, for they would come in their own time.

Finch,” he greeted with a nuzzle to her cheek—albeit briefer than he would have liked. Then to his daughter, “Tempest, my girl!” He moved his head down to try and touch his nose to the back of her head gently. He didn’t realise she was trembling until he touched her.

However, he inquired nothing; if she wanted him to know, she would tell him, he hoped. However, if things got worse, he would ask, of course.

She heard Gale holler back, and Scott return the reply as well.  She called again, hoping they could pinpoint her, when—

Oh, her sweet baby.

“Oh darling, I didn’t frighten you, did I?” she asked as her only daughter burrowed anxiously into her chest, trembling.  She wrapped a forelimb around her and licked at her, hoping all would be better now that she had been found. Tempest had done well, to come to her so quickly in spite of the panic she had clearly inspired. 

“It’s alright, I knew you would find me. I’ll never be gone far,” she assured.

Tobias was here now, as well, and she lifted her nose to nuzzle at him as he lowered to love on their daughter as well.

“Glad you’ve come. Thought we could relocate the children here. Give them some extra space…” She nuzzled back down to Tempest. “What do you think, Tem? Do you want to stay here for a bit and see if you like it?”

((VERY LOOSE POSTING ORDER, post as you feel so compelled!))

Momma was there, with Tempest and dada! Scott let out another boof before arriving, finally. His tail wagged, and he smiled brightly at his mother as he reached them, joining the little family party. He rubbed up against his father’s side, because his father was awesome.

However, when he saw Tempest’s body shake, he immediately worried, ears pressing back lightly, and a light frown on his face. ’‘Tem? Wha’s wrong?’‘ he asked, carefully poking the back of his sister’s head with his nose. Did she need snuggles? He could give her snuggles.

She did good, it was okay, mommy was here, and she tensed briefly at a touch but it was okay too, it was daddy. Settling down with reassurances, she shuffled to turn her face outside and look up at him with big, adoring eyes, the same as she did to everyone, really, but this time for daddy. Even daddy was here.

Scott was here, too, and she lowered her gaze to her brother, a more comfortable eye-level. “Thought you lef me,” she mumbled, embarrassed. Did she want to stay here in the new place she had been left for? She… wanted to stay wherever it made everyone else happy.

“You wanna stay Scott?”

Scott arrived and Tobias grinned. He looked at his children and mate, then to the place around them. It was rather nice, and Finch had already said she planned to move the pups here. It was beyond time for that, but they could move here now, and it would be safe. This place was more than a little beautiful.

Aye, this places looks more than perfect,” he told his mate with a cheeky lick in the direction of her nose. Because he loooooved her.

Scott, me wain. Come an’ give yer auld man a snuggle,” he said with a grin, hoping he’d come over, and maybe even return their little dialect. By now, he’d spoken it around most of the family, just mostly Scott. To him, it really wouldn’t be uncommon.

Scott had asked for Tobias to talk to him like that all the time, so he would.

Gale finally made it!

Could you blame him for getting a bit distracted? There was a rabbit that he just had to chase for a bit, okay? It would be a disgrace not to! But he was here now! Bursting through some brush and into the presence of his entire family.

He stumbled clumsily forward, wheezing and panting. “I’m ‘ere! I’m ‘ere!” He announced breathily, immediately b-lining for his mother. When he reached her, he scooted up beneath her neck to offer up a big, sloppy kiss to her chin. “Hi Ma!” Gale exclaimed as he bumped against Tempest, who was cuddled up next to Ma.

“Why we howl!” He asked as he shuffled back and peered around at his Da and Scott.

Tempest was upset and Scott didn’t like it, so he snuggled up against his sister, nuzzling her cheek. Hi tail thumped against the ground. Apparently they wanted to stay here? Make their new home here? Tempest asked if he liked it, and Scott looked around for a moment, taking in their surroundings. At that point Gale arrived, as well, snuggling up against Tempest and kissing momma.

’‘Momma wanted to find us new home?’‘ he said to Gale’s question, though he wasn’t really sure if that was the case, so he basically asked it and then looked to his mother, curious. ’‘It pretty here.’‘ he said then, answering Tempest’s question a bit late.

They all became a big old snuggle pile as Gale burst onto the scene, and Finch leaned into all of them, offering as many licks to each of her family members as she could. They wanted to stay, sounds like. Or at least Tem tentatively did, and Scott liked it.

“Yes, yes,” she told them all. “We’re leaving our den and we’re going to stay here, now. There is a lot more room to play in, does that sound nice?” she asked, and she wiggled back from the pile to encourage them to all spread out and explore a bit.

“There’s this bush over here. These are blackberries.  You can eat three every day, if you want. Not too many, though, because too many will make your tummy hurt. And only the sweet ones, okay? Trust your nose.”

She wasn’t worried about that too much, but fair warning to them.

They were staying here? Gale didn’t understand. It was pretty and all, and bigged than the den, and the berries sounded super cool but. But, but, but….

Gale’s face scrunched at the idea. What about the meadow?!

“But… I don’t wanna.” He was’nt gonna cry. Nope. But he definitely didn’t sound happy with this. “I wanna… I wanna live in tha Meadow! Wif Sif! An’...an’... I wanna e’sploooreeee. Why do we gotta stay here?” Staying here forever sounded like the worst thing. Yeah, it was new and exciting, but sooner or later he was gonna run out of stuff to explore!

Sometimes, daddy talked weird. She really didn’t know what it meant.

Shuffling out of the way so Gale could greet mommy as well, Scott was quicker to answer than the shy girl was, although she could bob her head in agreement with him. If this was the new home, it was pretty.

“Yeah…” She answered mommy. Mommy thought room was nice, then room was nice. And her attention definitely was piqued by blackberries. Only three. Immediately captivated, she walked carefully forward, sniffing delicately at the bush without getting toooooooo close.

A squeak popped out when Gale abruptly refused to be happy about it. Tempest hunched up her whole body guiltily, feeling bad for starting to like it here if he didn’t. She wanted everyone to be happy. Big eyes stared sadly at mommy, waiting for her to do what mommy did and make it better again.

Gale arrived soon enough, spreading his usual exuberance around the place as expected. It was a pleasant surprise to have him come quickly, but he couldn’t say that his words had done anything but confuse Tempest. Scott had not really noticed them, which was fine, but poor Tempest.

Confused as a fish out of water.

Finch explained the situation and outlined some ground rules, but Gale disapproved. He wanted to be in the meadow, when, well, they were. This was part of the meadow, so Tobias smiled. Tempest remained silently curious, but she was barely of concern.

Tempest was always well and ready to explore, just silently.

Gale, this is part of the meadow,” he said. “And you don’t have to stay in this one place. You can go out and explore, but this is our meeting place. It’s where you can always guarantee safety because this is our zone. Yeah?

Maybe he’d understand it put that way.

They were going to leave the den and probably move here. Something about berries, too. Scott looked in the direction his mother had spoken off, and nodded absentmindedly. Not too many berries, only the sweet ones, got it. Gale did not seem too happy to stay here, he wanted to stay in the Meadow with Sif, he said. Scott wanted to snuggle him and tell him it would be alright, but his father already beat him to it, giving a better explanation.

Scott leaned into Gale and started to gently nibble at his brother’s ears and neck fluff, to comfort him. See? It was all going to be okay. And if Gale till didn’t like it Scott could try and discuss with their parents what to do and make everyone happy, right? Because Scott wanted everyone to be happy and he needed to take care of everyone.
