He’d been slinking along the lake for a while now, lingering. Not with any particular intent of course. No, he had no attachments to this place. The only thing tying him here was the very thing that kept him slinking around the hills for so long the time before.

Laziness.

Or as he preferred to call it—lack of inspiration.

He could understand why others were drawn to the lake. It certainly wasn’t lacking in the aesthetics department, the rogues were friendly, the fish were flavorful, there just wasn’t a spark. No fireworks, ya know? It was time for him to see other people. Er. Landscapes?

And it was with that convincing discourse that Monte found himself here, toeing the line, an increasingly dense blend of pack scents slowly filling his nose. He flicked his tail against the meadow grass, pausing to glance around at the area before him. With each additional step he took the protection of the glade faded behind him; any further lingering and he’d put himself right in the middle of a meadow.

A meadow that was clearly not meant for lowly rogue wanderers and other riffraff like himself.

Monte huffed lightly to himself, as if he hadn’t known exactly what he was getting himself into. He’d first detected the beginnings of that good ole’ pack scent quite a ways back. He could grumble all day long about the inconvenience of pack borders and the pompousness of it all—but at the end of the day he knew this is where he had wanted to end up. Call it reckless, but he couldn’t help it.

It wasn’t like it had to be any big deal. Just a little check in, chalk it up to experience. He didn’t have anything to lose. Monte took a few steps into the meadow, foregoing any attempts of stealth. The way the wind was blowing he was half surprised no one had already barged over and tackled him. Not that he was complaining.

Scott was sniffing out scents of prey because he was a good boy and he wanted to catch some food for his father and show it off and be praised. Not that he really minded if he did not get praise but when his father became proud, it seemed to make his father happy. So Scott wanted to become better at hunting and tracking for his father, not for himself.

He also liked to practice talking his father’s tongue when he was on his own, just some lonely practice to get better at pronouncing the words he had learned. Because practice made perfect, and Scott knew that.

As he was sniffing around for prey, he actually found the scent of something else. A wolf he did not know. And its scent was not mingled with that of the pack. So… it couldn’t be a pack wolf, right? At least, not part of their pack.

Scott began to move towards the scent. Maybe he could ask them what was going on, see who they were, make a decision. Their Captain had left. Bali was gone with Rota looking for Gale and Sif. Who was here around now to help defend the pack? Da and Bravo were, but he did not see them around. And he knew there were other members of the Idavoll Circle, but he had not seen them since the meeting, when everyone seemed to turn against each other…

He let out some barks, to let the stranger know he was on his way.

Tempest heard Scotty bark, and wiggled excitedly. She didn’t know what he was barking at, but she’d come help him. He always tried to help her because he was the nicest brother in the whole world, and she wanted to make double extra sure he wasn’t upset that she and daddy had waited here for mommy to come back…

“I’m coming!” she roused herself, plodding along at the quickest walk she could muster, eyes bright despite her subdued pace as she tailed her brother.

He barely made it two lengths before he heard the bark. Figures.

Sit in the same spot for twenty minutes like a good trespasser—nothing. But the minute he got it in his head to maybe go take a bite out of one of their gophers—BAM. There was the bark.

These pack wolves were on their shit. Or maybe they were just lucky. Either way.

Monte raised his head, trying to trace the source of the sound. He couldn’t tell much from the tone, but now that he was actually paying attention again, a stronger, more distinct wolf scent reached his nose. It was definitely wasn’t a rogue. His eyes gleamed with newfound enthusiasm as he let out a low wuff, continuing to scan the grass for signs of his newest association.

Perhaps he should have been nervous, intruding on random pack property and all, but Monte felt nothing of the sort. For once since coming to this god-forsaken lake he actually felt like his good bold self again. Why hadn’t he tried this sooner?

Tempest was nearby! Scott smiled at that. he loved his sister, and he was glad they got to spend some time together. Even if it was while meeting a stranger. But then again it made Scott feel more brave because he would not be alone when facing a stranger. In case it was a mean, bad stranger. You never knew. Scott thought a lot, because he liked to be prepared.

As he ran, a figure became visible in the distance, and Scott made sure to close the gab between them as quickly as possible. Not because Scott was afraid it might be a bad wolf, but because he did not want the wolf too wait too long.

’‘Hiya!’‘ Scott called with a little innocent smile on his face, tail swaying behind him. ’‘Ye cam tae keek fur the Captain?’‘ he asked and he came to a stop a distance away a, a little grin on his face now. It was fun to talk his da’s language!

Breathing a little unsteadily, Tempest came loping up after Scotty, distressed at just how much slower she was than him—she would never be distressed that he was fast, she was proud of him.

Stumbling in at the tail end of his words, she heard something about the Captain and her face twitched with a sad pull of a frown. Did… no one tell him? That Captain Kara was gone? Panting, she turned quietly to the stranger, not saying anything yet. Or did he know something about her? Oh, why couldn’t she keep up with everyone else.

It wasn’t long before a face appeared to match the bark.

Hm. Not really the form he expected to find patrolling the frontlines. The guy had to be like, what? A year max? Hardly the muscle he had anticipated. Monte stepped forward, ready to introduce himself nevertheless when—

Oh look there were two of them. Siblings maybe? They certainly looked the part.

He glanced back to the first wolf, eyebrow raised questioningly. Alright yeah, maybe having girl show up threw him off his game a little, but something was telling him they weren’t quite working on the same wavelength here. He blinked curiously between the two wolves. Maybe they should try this again. “Sorry mate, what was that?”

He sounded confused, and Scott couldn’t help but grin. It was actually kind of funny, to talk daddy’s language and confuse others with it. ’‘Sorry, my da teaching me how to talk like him. It’s fun to practice.’‘ he said, before adding, ’‘I was just asking if you were here to meet the Captain.’‘

And then he looked at Tempest as she met up with them, and he smiled brightly, tail wagging. It was good to have his sister with him! ’‘I’m Scott Peregrine White!’‘ he said proudly, as he looked back to the male. He was finally able to say his full name perfectly. He loved that.

O-oh, is that what Scotty meant to say? Would it be rude to let him know that he’d said something completely different? Tem didn’t understand saying… Not the words you want to say? To say the words you wanted to say? But she also knew Scotty was a lot smarter than her, so maybe it made sense to him. It must, because he did it.

Introducing herself she understood though! “I’m Tempest Isla White!” she beamed in kind, forgetting to let Scotty know that Captain Kara wasn’t here to be… keeked?

Monte nodded slowly at the kid’s explanation—not that it actually made the situation any clearer, but Monte wasn’t about to press the issue.

That could stay between him and his “da”

The male flicked his tail amicably at their introductions, a slight, charmed smile tugging at the corners of his lips. “Three names each? That’s impressive. My parents only gave me two…” he rumbled, eyes sparking with amusement. “The name’s Monte—Monte Mafasa.”

The sound his full name felt strange in his mouth. Since entering the valley he’d basically stopped using it altogether. There wasn’t much point when he was the only Mafasa for miles, but apparently one name just wasn’t enough around these parts—so Monte Mafasa it was.

At the mention of a Captain, Monte’s ears flicked forward. If he recalled correctly, Makoa’s lady friend had been the Captain of a pack…The circle something? Perhaps this was her pack. He opened his mouth to ask, before closing it again. He wasn’t usually one to hold back, but maybe bringing up Kara and Makoa wasn’t the best idea…given what Makoa had told him.

The male glanced between Scott and Tempest as he spoke. “I’ve been by the lake for a while—smelled you guys a few days ago, so I came to see what the deal was over here,” he shrugged. “So yes, I’ll take the tour.”

Tempest introduced herself, and so did the male. Monte Mafasa, huh? Cool name! Scott smiled at him, with that same innocent look on his face, like always. And then he spoke of wanting a tour? Scott wasn’t sure if that was such a good idea since he and Tempest were just pups. Maybe he needed to call an adult for the tour. Like… Bravo. Bravo was a cool friend and an adult! He could help!

’‘If you want a tour we can call for Bravo. I’m sure he would love to help you out.’‘ Scott said, like the sweet innocent child he was. Sure, they could give the tour, the two pups, but Scott had to admit he did not know everything about the pack. So calling for an experienced adult was wiser, and safer, considering they did not really know Monte…

He looked to Tempest, hoping she wanted to howl with him for the male. And then he lifted his head to the sky and called for Bravo. Because Scott just wanted to be a good boy, and he felt kind of insecure thinking about the idea of giving a tour, himself.

Tempest felt oddly shy at the compliment from Sir Monte. She kinda wanted to call him Mr. Monte, just to go along with Mr. Monte Mafasa, but she would still call him Sir, like everyone else.

Oh. Uncle Sir. Realizing she was staring at Sir Monte, she looked away nowhere into the sky, and then at Scotty. Uncle Sir knew a lot, he could do a tour, yeah. Normally quiet but wanting to continue looking impressive in front of Sir Monte, she took a deep breath and howled alongside Scotty, hoping to summon their new leader with the combination of their voices.

In the not too distant distance, there was a return howl.

How could Bravo say no to the combined forces of his two favorite young friends?

Bravo?

Was he the Captain then? Perhaps this wasn’t the pack Makoa had mentioned after all. Or maybe Bravo was just the tour guide…if pack tour guides were a thing. Monte brushed the thought aside, which was just as well because before he could say anything the pair had already sent up a howl.

Monte nodded in response to Scott’s offer—a bit late but better than never. “Is Bravo your Captain then?” he asked simply, keeping an ear out for any other approaching wolves.

Monte asked if Bravo was their Captain, and Scott thought for a moment, frown on his face. ’‘Don’t… think so? We have a Captain named Kara, but I have not seen nor smelled her in a very long time…’‘ he mumbled, and he shrugged. Last time he had seen Kara had been at the pack meeting, when everyone was arguing and mad with each other. Had Kara left?

He shot a confused look at his sister, wondering if Tempest knew more about it all. Had she been at the pack meeting? He could not remember… He knew his da had been there, though. But Kara had been gone for a long time, and so had Alair. And Bali and Rota as well, but Bravo had told Scott those last two had gone out looking for Gale and Sif.

It had been quiet around the Meadow, lately…

Uncle Sir! That was him! Her tail wiggled a little in spite of herself as she waited for him to join them.

As for Captain Kara… her tail fell still and her ears pulled back at the look from her brother. “Um.” She kneaded at the grass a little, looking away and down at her paws after a few seconds of doing so. “Captain Kara had to go away,” she mumbled, “but Uncle Sir and Sir Bali are still here.”
