The light had fallen quicker than she had thought, awkward with small talk the girl often found herself sunken into her thoughts, unceremoniously. She wasn’t the most talkative, and when she saw the entrance to the Hills, she couldn’t help but have a grin meander onto her mouth. Home. She was home. She hoped the others wouldn’t mind the company, though, she really wouldn’t care in the slightest what they had to say. She went through this trouble for her friend and she’d be damned if they stopped her.

“Just up here,” She called behind her, her tail flickering absentmindedly at her own voice. The crunch beneath her paws was the only thing that left her from going completely insane from the silence that followed.

The Hollow.

As beautiful as ever and she halted before looking back at them. She offered a smile to Sikozu before turning away again and heading into the den.

“Dalus?”

Dalus was slowly psyching himself up to venture outside the hollow again after his encounter with Nanook and that other wolf, Senna.

Sienna hadn’t come back yet and he was growing increasingly restless. Not to mention, there wasn’t much room inside the hollow for his pacing.

He squirmed in the main sleeping area for what seemed like an eternity before he heard her voice and nearly tripped over himself in his haste to get outside. And there she was, blocking his view of the other just behind her.

He lowered himself against the ground to cran his neck up and poke his nose to the underside of her chin in his usual greeting, his tail waving softly at his heels.

The summons echoed across the lands surrounding the hollow, meeting Senna’s curious ears. The wolf who called was unknown to Senna, so she figured the summons wasn’t for her, but might as well go see what was going on at the borderlands, right?

....

The sight that met her eyes was Dalus, the boy she had met earlier, greeting a new girl—the person who had howled, presumably? There was also another wolf trailing the new girl. Although she was still out of earshot, Senna halted her approach to watch events unfold.  Odd, how much more friendly Dalus seemed with this new girl than he had been with her. What had Senna done wrong?

As of recent, Nanook had stayed within Sanctuary grounds, making his rounds of marking territory boarders and bringing back food to the cache. He had a handful of wolves to help feed and keep safe, so he took his duties very seriously. Which was probably why he had been trailing Senna, who he was normally not far from.

His paws moved swiftly across the white blanket of snow, tracking the faint scent, speed picking up once he realized the trail had veered suddenly. What had caught her attention? Nanook did not want the girl to feel smothered by him, but his curiosity had gotten the best of him.

It didn’t help that the more he walked, the more scents funneled into his nose. Some were familiar, Dalus and Sienna, the later he was most excited to smell because he had not seen the young female since the cyclone and had worried about her whereabouts, but there were other scents, ones that he did not know of and one that he thought he faintly smelled, rolling in from the direction of Verdant Hills. It was a scent that made his hairs stand on edge, but he would look into the matter later. Three young ones were gathering and usually that meant that something was going on. He should go find out, right?

(sorry for the phone post! I don’t have internet but I didn’t want to hold this up!)

Sikozu didn’t mind the silence as they traveled, but she felt exhausted by the time they’d arrived. She couldn’t let it show, because she had a job to do, but she was tired. As the slowed, the girl cleared her throat and prepared for what was to come. An infection, the girl had mentioned. How bad it was, they would have to see.

The girl called out, and Sikozu waited behind her, patiently. She shifted, feeling slightly out of place. She scented the others, and moved a step to the side with a warm smile. They didn’t deserve games, she was here to help. Ko could hopefully let her guard down.

“Hello there. I’m Sikozu, I’m a healer from another pack. I’ve come to help.” She wanted to clear the air, to everyone who was there and may arrive, she was no threat.

Of course, when she came back the gang seemed to be there and right when she called Dalus’ name, he was there. She breathed a heavy sigh of relief as a small smile drifted onto her mouth. Leaning up to touch noses with him in greeting, she turned away and back to Sikozu. Then came the others. Bounding over was another girl she hadn’t met and she gave a small smile in curiosity. Nodding her head at Sikozu’s introduction, she motioned her head towards Dalus.

“So uh,” She attempted to go around him towards his infected shoulder. It looked better than it did when she found him, but it was still bad, and the fever caused her a really big scare. It was a gaping hole and she was actually flabbergasted that he was standing up. “A branch got stuck in the storm in his shoulder. We pulled it out and packed snow onto it. He had a fever last night.”

It almost left her until her eyes scanned the inner hollow. The plant she had tried to get him to eat laying in all of its glory. Swiftly, she grabbed and turned to Sikozu. “Do you happen to know what this is called? My mother gave it to me as a pup and I found it in here a few nights ago. I thought it helped with fevers.”

Having expected Sienna to come alone as she usually did, the sight of her turning to address an unknown wolf behind her was more than a little unnerving.

His ears flicked back against her head as he moved to press himself against the walls of the hollow entrance, both to allow Sienna more room to manuever as well as serving to make himself as small as possible in the presence of a stranger.

Dalus couldn’t see the other two approaching from his position, wide fearful eyes glued to the strange female as they interacted effortlessly with each other.

What had Sienna been doing while she was gone?

Senna was still too far to hear the exchange, but the scents of the new wolves had finally drifted through the still air to meet Senna’s nose. The small woman behind the new girl smelled of strongly Elliot… maybe she was from The Kingdom?

The dark-pelted girl had arrived with purpose, like she belonged here in the sanctuary, and certainly if Dalus was comfortable enough to approach her she must belong here.

So. A sanctuary wolf escorting a Kingdom wolf to the hollow. Was the woman a refugee? Or perhaps she was some sort of emissary, here to smooth over pack relations? Senna had little doubt that the woman would have some of the answers she sought.

The girl remained in place, waiting her turn to talk with the small woman whenever this exchange was complete.

Soon, figures appeared in the distance, a small gathering of wolves. The sight caused the older wolf’s tail to sway lightly, it was exciting to see wolves congregate on pack territory, it seemed more… homey. It was not a sight that he had seen when he was last apart of The Sanctuary. Before, it was more of a ghost town with remnants of who was lurking, but only shadows were found. This time around, things were lively, conversations were had and moments were shared with one another, it seemed more like what Nanook was searching for. It felt more like a home, something worth being apart of. It warmed his heart.

He had intended to approach the group casually, head held high and tail even with his body, but once he got closer, the scent of the stranger hit him. It was not Elliot, but she reeked of him. Who was this woman? Why did she smell of him? And what was she doing here?

The pale wolf’s hairs stood on end, his body tensed and his tail raised as he stood still and silent for a moment, still a few yards away. A heavy breath of air, along with a grunt forcefully came from his mouth.

Stay calm.

Stay collected.

It’s not Elliot.

Not Elliot, just reeked of Elliot. He was cautious, he was alert, where was Elliot? Was he nearby? Could he see them? Were they in danger?

He shook the thoughts from his head, he had to move, he had been standing for a few moments too long. If Elliot was watching, Nanook did not want to give him the satisfaction of him knowing that he was bothered by the other male so much.

So, he approached, tail only slightly raised now and hair flat, but his eyes were fierce. He wanted information, he wanted to know who this wolf was and why she smelled of Elliot and what she was doing, here, in his home. Their home.

Amber eyes looked at each familiar face before giving a friendly nod of greeting, “It is good to see everyone together,” then his gaze was set on the strange female. “and I see that we have a guest.” Who was she? Why did she smell of Elliot? “I am Nanook Himura and who might you be?”
