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.
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?”
