Sunfall had chased a hare up through the pines and managed to snare it at last by a back leg, dragging it in for a clean kill. But as he lifted his muzzle, surprised by the scent of salt because he thought the ocean was to the west, he padded onward, and found himself standing on the edge of a giant bay, his hare dropping at his paws. For about a minute he just stared, having no idea there was more ocean so close. The skies had cleared after the morning rain and now beams of light pushed through the dissipating clouds, pillars of light that touched the water and lit up what appeared to be a massive island in the middle of the bay. Despite the cold he immediately wanted to swim out there to see what it was like upon it. Sunfall could see otters fishing down in the calm waters and the calls of seabirds were everywhere as they picked over the beach. This place was HUGE! His tail started to wag unconsciously behind him.
Then, unable to contain his excitement at the sheer brilliance of the land he saw in front of him, he lifted his muzzle and howled his delight to the entire bay. About three hundred or so started seabirds took flight at the sound. Sunfall let out a bark of glee and like an oversized puppy, he raced down to the beach and chased them, exactly like he and Carl had once done.
He couldn’t wait to explore this place! Maybe he’d go get Tidus and Yuna and Laura, and them and he and Saski could all check it all out!
