The rain had slowed for a short time.

It was early evening, with crickets chirping and frogs croaking, and the clearing was soggy. Empty. Except for circles of mushrooms that seemed sort of magical.

Rufus was there, too. With the mushrooms. Traveling their delicately made circles, marveling at nature’s subtle beauty.

And just…thwacking each mushroom into space with a swipe of his broad paw.

Mushroom one? POW.

Mushroom two? POW.

Mushroom three? POW.

And when he’d demolished one circle, he moved on to the next, merciless.

Thwack. Squelch. Thwack. Squelch. Thwack. Squelch.

What a fantastic little ditty. Ryd moved through the soggygreen forest, her paws squelching in time opposite to the thwacks. She’d been here rarely, and here? Never. She broke the treeline to see… someone fucking gigantic among the defenseless shroom circles.

Huh. Mildly familiar.

More importantly, he was making the thwacking sound. She studied him a bit, and watched them go flying. And then hollered.

“Yo, Fun guy!”

Jokes.

Rufus could hardly hear her approach over the sound of his own squishy footsteps, focused dutifully on his task of senselessly murdering clearing mushrooms.

So when she spoke up, he jumped a little, and his tail briefly fluffed.

Small wolf, but decidedly not Mari. It was…

Ryd?” he said, a little incredulous. “Long time no see!

And last see, very awkward. Where was that guy she was beating up?

Hold up.

Big grey giant knew her name and what was more, she was pretty fucking sure she knew that voice. Familiar. Familiar.

Think.

Biteable face.

“Oh SHI-HI-HIT!” she yelled out in a laugh. “It’s the fucking Weatherman!”

Ryd took a few bounding leaps to him before her back legs slid awkwardly in the mud and she like sat also awkwardly to make up for it.

But then she stood again because sitting was for fatties. “How ya been?!”

Weatherman. Right. That moment came very clearly back to Rufus now, and as Ryd bound forward, he winced in preparation for some sudden attack.

After the weirdness with Flit, he was sort of…extra afraid of feisty rogue females. But she sat, so he figured- oh. Wait. No. She stood again. He willed a barrier around his face to prevent bites and smiled sheepishly.

Uh, good. Really good. Got a…mate. And uh.

Rufus you’re so OLD.

Kids,” he said, ears tilting back a little. “How about, uh, you?

Gasp. “Noooooo wayyy! Wimpy Weatherman got himself a chick? And chicklets???”

Her entire demeanor was playfully teasing, utterly uncaring if he had hurt feelings over it. Ryd was excited, and spun wildly in a circle as if she might catch sight of all the chickens.

Uh. Weathermanlets and Ms. Weatherman, rather.

“Where?!”

Rufus was not a wolf easily insulted in the face of excitement about his mate and pups, however, teasingly it was phrased. Ryd was giddy, super giddy, and…

It reminded him of Flit. Again. Flit, who he really did try to understand but…just…couldn’t. And certainly Rufus knew that Flit hated packs, or…“packers,” and he struggled to remember if Ryd did, too.

Probably all, uh, back at home. Given the rain. We’re part of a…pack. In a cave not far from here.

He tensed slightly in prepartation for his face being yelled off for some reason or another. Girls made him all jumpy now.

“Daaaang. Didn’t you like… abandon someone or something? Whatever happened there?” Ryd asked with an innocent tilt of the head that maybe didn’t make up for how callous her question was. She remembered being pissed at Moon’s disappearance. Being pissed at the rain.

She still hated the excess rain in this valley, but she’d given herself no choice but to get the fuck over it. That and Moon. Looked like Rufus got over whatever had him being all mopey when she’s first met him, too.

Sigh. She wanted Rydlets, but Lug was admittedly… a bit too much a Luglet himself still. Oh well. She wondered what he was up to.

It’s uh…a long and dumb story. But. Needless to say, things are way better now.

That was a very different time. A very different world. It was hard to think about now.

What’ve you been up to? The…Cadre’s run by entirely different wolves now, apparently.

He regretted the words after he said them, wondering if he’d just sentenced Pierre to a face note. How was Pierre doing, anyway? Rufus hadn’t seen him in a while…

Rude! She wanted the story, but decidedly shook it off.

Especially since… he mentioned the Cadre.

“Oh?” Ryd asked, and for a moment her crazygirl demeanor fell away. Lyra… she wondered what had happened.

Fuck packs, a memory of Moon hissed, but Moon wasn’t here.

“Mostly just traveling a lot. Left Lug up by my family,” she said, pushing a little grin to her face.

“What happened to the Cadre?”

Rufus didn’t know what he felt more sorry for. Lug’s name, or the fact that he’d been left with a family of Ryds.

The old leader just…left, I think. It’s run by a yearling now, but a good one. Named Pierre. We’re sorta far off allies. They’ve been randomly attacked by a lot of jerks lately, but…he’s doing his best.

He shrugged a little just as an idea popped into his head, but…he kept it inside for now. Rufus wasn’t even sure he knew Ryd well enough to make it work.

A yearling? Attacks?

Ryd looked sharply to the trees, her expression pensive. “When I was there we were strong,” she said, and maybe her little chest puffed a little for it.

But… why would Lyra just… leave? And Nyx, too? That sounded so unlike them. Unless it had to do with Finn’s death.

Ryd didn’t know. This was the heaviest news she’d heard since she fucking left the pack.

Rufus sorta…inwardly winced at Ryd’s words. It was hard not to call her out. To point out that she’d just…left.

Sounds like most members just wandered off with time. We’ve run into that a lot here. Wolves have a way of just sorta…vanishing, even when they seem happy here.

Ophelia came to mind first and foremost. He forced himself to shrug.

So what drew you back to the valley?

“That’s not how it was when I was there,” she shook her head, nearly insulted. “If the damn Penumbras had fucking treated me like an equal we would have been the strongest pack. No one messed with me at the lake.”

She remembered that one dude. Vagabond? Vagrant? Something. He was a weirdo. Good times, running him out.

“Big world, Weatherman. I go back to a lot of different places. This is just one haunt among many.”

Rufus shrugged again, and Drew decided to stop post splicing.

They must have treated everyone as less than an equal, I guess, for them to completely dissolve. Admittedly, even when Lyra was around one time I visited, they…didn’t seem to have a very strong sense of self.

He recalled asking…Brian? Brynn? About what the pack stood for, and the wolf had struggled with an answer. Suggesting he ask Lyra.

Maybe they should have just put you in charge.

She grunted wordlessly because Hal also didn’t like post splicing. Lyra cared for everyone like family… as long as that family was beneath her and Nyx, she supposed.

Ryd shook it out. So damn long ago.

His comment earned a humorless laugh. “They should’ve. I was the one that fought for the pack’s growth while they sat around doing nothing.”

Harsh words from a wolf that busied herself more than others, but they felt accurate. That alone was all that mattered.
