no posting order, tita will make new rounds! :)

It was time to find out what else they could see and head elsewhere. It wasn’t Lysander’s threat about winter up here or anything that was making her want to get on the move again. Her paws were just getting restless. This place was awesome, no doubt, but she wanted more. And, anyway, they could always come back.

But she supposed they should find out if Enzo and Abrielle were gonna come, or Bianca and Lysander if they were still around. She didn’t doubt Abrielle would, but she was also avoiding any expectations. All she knew for certain was that Maaike was coming because she’d spoken to her about it already.

Well, time to find out.

Tita stood by the springs and lifted her head up, howling into the setting sky.

Lysander Jade
 

A sudden warm snap had reduced some portion of the accumulated snow to slush, but the rise in temperatures hadn’t lasted long enough for a significant melt. It had, however, made a mess of any trails laid down on the floor of the Pass. Much to Lysander’s chagrin.

Trying to track Titania and Maaike was difficult enough as it was, given the rugged, winding terrain and the girls’ general penchant for roaming. They hadn’t sought him out following their initial reunion either, which Lysander supposed shouldn’t have come as a surprise. They had only agreed to let him stay with them there in the mountains, after all; they didn’t have to make it easy for him. And if he was being honest with himself, they probably wanted to leave him in the dust. The two of them were stuck on this notion of being independent, eager to blaze their own trail without anyone else’s help.

Except for Miss Abrielle and Mister Silvano, of course.

Lysander’s nose wrinkled as his muzzle swept over the scents of the two wolves. Then he paused and lifted his head to stare flatly up at the surrounding peaks.

They were probably with the girls now, he imagined, watching over them and teaching them as parents would. The fact that he’d had his paternal role yanked beyond his reach once again didn’t sit well with Lysander in the least, but yet again, he knew that to offer resistance would all but seal his fate where Titania was concerned. If he tried to separate the girls from their newfound friends, he would be the bad guy. His only hope was to wait them out — wait for them to tire of their mountaineering jaunt or simply get routed out by the brunt of winter.

But the longer he stayed up there, following the two children like a lost pup, the more Lysander began to wonder if it was just wishful thinking. There was a chance they might tough it out. They were practically adults at this point. They could take up permanent residence there, if it struck their fancy. Meanwhile Demetrius and Oberon were back at home in the Alliance territory without a clue where he was. Growing up without him once again.

Not to mention he still didn’t know Rhydian’s whereabouts — which, to Lysander’s surprise, did actually concern him. He and Bianca had traveled into the Pass following the Warden’s trail, but they’d never found the wolf himself. Had he gone back home to his remaining family? Or was he still up there, like him, wandering in search of children who didn’t really want to be found?

He lingered there for a while, idly noting the familiarity of the area. He was near the springs: a place he’d never counted on getting near ever again.

But memories of a queen and her empire and a fallen friend came to him only distantly now. His head was too abuzz with other thoughts. Loud and persistent.

How was he meant to choose between his children? As much as staying in the mountains felt like an uphill battle that could end in nothing but failure, turning his back on his little girl and leaving here there made him feel sick to his stomach. Yet at the same time, prolonging his stay meant that he was neglecting his boys: two pups who actually… sort of… seemed to like him. While they’d yet to know him as anything more than their uncle, Lysander had forged at least something of a bond with Demetrius and Oberon. He felt that Titania might take to him more if they ever got a chance, but…

As if on cue, his daughter’s voice rang out through the chill evening air, the sound of it bouncing of the walls of rock and reaching him even from a distance.

Lysander felt his heart flutter uncomfortably in his chest. She was probably calling for Maaike, he told himself. Or perhaps for her new guardians. Surely not for him.

He stood there for a long moment in the wake of the howl, frozen, uncertain.

Then he threw caution to the wind, tilted his head back, and sent up a long, wavering note in reply.

When it was done, he merely lapsed into silence. And waited.

Titania lowered her head and waited for moment, ears perked, when she heard Lysander. So he was around! Tita wondered if Bianca was with him.

She stood by the springs and lifted her head, howling for a second time. Yes! Come!

Tossing Enzo in super quick; will bring Bi around shortly. :)

Lorenzo never wandered far from the hot springs as of late—making trips to the lake only when his thirst commanded him to. Otherwise, he maintained a presence near the wondrous cavern, discontent to distance himself from the invigorating, pain-sapping properties of the warm liquid.

He’d succumbed to a light slumber earlier in the afternoon, only to be roused by a howl. It was soon followed by one far deeper, from a wolf far more mature, only to be echoed by the initial caller once again.

Alright, alright. He’d bite.

With a yawn, he rose to his paws and shook the snow that clung to his underbelly from his fur. His tongue flicked out over his nose as he ambled along the winding path, feeling the warmth of the springs begin to permeate the thinner fur along his muzzle and legs before long.

As he rounded the last wall separating him from the cavern, he spotted Tita’s dark form among the stones. A smile edged along his muzzle.

“Evening,” he murmured, in a voice drowsy from sleep.

Bianca Silvano Jill
 

Bianca had been slowly making her way to the upper reaches of the mountains. A trek further north, toward the lowlands, had provided her with some much-needed insight and solitude.

Now refreshed, she approached the path to the springs with confidence in her step, the sort which had been lacking as of late. Had been lacking since reuniting with her uncle, really.

Though she’d relied on scent trails to guide her this close to the caverns, the series of howls that pierced the air served as a better signal of where to go. The second call undoubtedly belonged to Lysander. She was relieved to know he was still around—that his nieces had him there while she’d taken a sojourn near the lookout.

Lifting her muzzle to the sky, she howled in response, letting the others know she’d arrive as soon as she could.

Much further down the pass. Won’t arrive for a few rounds, so please feel free to skip Bi until I toss her back in. :)

((Coooomming I held off for a bit because I wasn’t sure if Neomii would still be with her! Here next round!))

Maaike came flying towards the hot springs with an eager set of barks. She’d heard the first lot of howls, and the second now as well! Here came Maaike! She knew what this was about, but it was time to figure out who was coming with them and where they were going.

Tita bounced over to Enzo as soon as she saw him, going to sniff at his snout eagerly. “Enzo!” she exclaimed gladly before pulling away. “Have you seen Abrielle? She hasn’t howled back.” Maybe she was on a hunt, or just didn’t feel like howling back.

Tita heard Bianca’s more distant howl then, and Maaike barking closeby. Her tail wagged.

Everyone was coming! Except…

Abrielle was gonna be in so much trouble if she didn’t show!

“Tita,” he breathed, squaring his legs as she bounded toward him. An old habit. He blinked down at her as she inquired about Abrielle, finding he could provide only a slow shake of his head in response. “I have not.”

Bianca howled, then, and her call was followed by a series of barks. They belonged to Maaike, assumedly. Lorenzo had come to know her as the more hyper of the two girls, even if their encounters had been few thus far. Such noise seemed fitting of her.

Glancing once more at Tita, he stepped around the girl to bring himself to the edge of the springs. The desire to ask after her reasons for summoning them rattled about his brain, noisy and impossible to ignore as a rock cascading down the mountain cliffs, but he refrained.

Surely, she’d enlighten her audience before long.

((Oh right skipping whoops Chris :P ))

Maaike skidded in the snow, tilting forward and saving herself at the last minute. “Tiiiiita!” She sang, tail wagging, and pranced over to aim a lick at her sister’s cheek. “Wait til you hear all the stuff I learned fomr my new friend! It’s super important too!” She squealed and pawed at Tita, too excited. Then she grinned broadly at the two pale wolves.

“Hi Enzo! And did I hear Uncle Lys calling too?”

A frown. And a humph.

He hadn’t seen Abrielle. This was troubling, but Tita trusted Abrielle enough to avoid it being troubling.

She wouldn’t just leave like Mum.

Right?

Maaike brought her out of her thoughts, planting a lick on her cheek. She giggled. She had super important stuff to tell her, apparently!

“I think so! And probably Bianca!” Tita replied. If they didn’t know where the springs were it might be a while before they got here—

“So, Enzo. Me and Maaike wanted to talk about leaving the mountains for now and exploring some other places,” she informed, once again moving back closer to him.

Maaike settled down beside Tita, but her tail still wagged. She’d fill her in soon. First order of business!

“Yeah, we’re ready.” She agreed, smiling sideways at Tita. “We also talked about going to check in with everyone at home. But we don’t want to camp out all winter there - just say hi. Like Tita said - we want to explore new places.”
