It felt like it had taken ages to get here, but they had finally made it to the base of the northern mountains. They’d spent a few days traveling since the encounter with the white bitch and random kid, pausing for the boys. But as they’d grown closer, she couldn’t without her energy. Unable to hold back, Sparrow had charged ahead of the family a bit, eager to gaze up at the rocky slopes and peaks. From a distance the mountains had looked massive, even more than the ones they’d once called home to the south.
Now, looking up and up from the base, they looked even larger.
The cool chill of winter brushing through her coat, she let out a short howl, hoping Ink and the boys would show up soon enough. Every fiber in her being was ready to climb, to push the boys past the limits they’d known in the hills. Beyond the chill of the winter air, every fiber of her being was buzzing with an energy she hadn’t felt in ages.
These weren’t their mountains. But they could be. This could be their new start, new home, new everything.
With a contented sigh, she turned, seeking out her family, tail swaying gently behind her and heart racing. This was it. This was home.
