The beach was the same as it always had been. She still found it dirty and unpleasant, but not enough that she couldn’t enjoy the beauty of it. The waves were soothing and calming and it reminded her of Ale again. She wondered if the boy had found someone to look after him. Babette had only met him the once, but he was so puppy-like, it was a wonder he was still alive at all. Perhaps he had finally starved.
She wasn’t too far south of the borders of Pace’s tribe, but she was just enjoying some space for now. It was a little warmer today than it had been and she was able to sit with her paws all on a rock and appreciate the sunlight. Soon enough the cold grip of winter would have her seeking shelter, no doubt.
Hunger gnawed at her and it reminded Babette that she hadn’t eaten since the incident in the forest. Perhaps she should try to catch a fish… Oh, but that had been so awful last time! She paused to lick the tiny spot the branch had snagged. It’d taken a clump of fur with it - explaining the burning sensation when it happened - but it’d grow back pretty quickly she thought.
