He didn’t snap at her.
Huh.. that was rather surprising, considering how much he liked digging his teeth into her flesh last time they met.
Either way, she let her nose linger in his fur some more, until it reached higher up his head, only to pull away when she touched the back of his right ear. Ren spoke about hobbling around like her and she could swear she felt a bit of amusement build up within her chest at the idea of him being a tripod.
At least for a little while.
She thought about laughing too, but that would’ve been rude, wouldn’t it? Well, yeah, probably. But, honestly, karma was a little bitch, Ren. Much like Kamaal herself. Her eyes briefly flitted over to Ares, regarding him for a moment, before allowing her attention to land back to Renegade.
If she knew anything at all, it was that his leg was gonna worsen if the temperatures kept dropping and come the snow, he’d probably be stuck on three legs forever, which.. wasn’t the best.
She could probably call for Meir - if he was still lingering around the forest that was - and ask for his services, but.. in order to heal Ren’s fucked up leg the gingery guy would have to head back to the caves, to gather all of his herbal remedies and shit.
And he was uncomfortable last time she’d seen him.
And she had a feeling Mari had seen that as well.
So.. calling for Meir was probably a bad idea.
And… getting Renegade to the caves was also kind of a bad idea because a: he didn’t like being within pack territory and b: Meir was the only healer here, wasn’t he? Or was there another one? She honestly couldn’t remember.
But, ah.. Yuna’s advice still clung to her memory. Comfrey and.. willow bark. The girl had claimed that the latter would be available year-long, so.. perhaps they could find some? Did Yuna have some?
She knew what a willow tree looked like and the trees in this forest were definitely not willows. Maybe they were situated closer to the hills? Graywood used to have those by the lake, so perhaps they’d be able to find a tree or two by the river.
She honestly had no clue.
But, maybe giving it a shot wasn’t a bad idea.
“Why the hell did you come here on three legs? Yuna was closer you know, could’ve gone to her.” Perhaps his ego had grown bigger during his time away from her or perhaps he was just dumb and stubborn as fuck - much like her. Oh, hell.. she knew that he could turn this question right back at her, but she just dared him to.
Come on, do it, Renegade.
He spoke then and.. well, it wasn’t what she had in mind, but okay.
Flicking a single ear, she moved a bit to the right, before casually taking a seat against the soft ground, a few inches away from Ren.
No more touching for you.
Distance was fine.
Her attention flickered back to Ares, waiting for a reply of sorts.
Hopefully he wouldn’t bolt.
