Head for the northern packs, Seeker had said, and so she had ventured north.

The siblings were nearby, she knew. Within howling distance, surely; every so often she would throw up a howl for one or the other, just for the relief of hearing their voices, the reassurance that they were near. It was how she had traveled with Sonya for years, and it was good to know that Seeker was picking up on their rhythms and habits without much trouble.

Family had surprising things in common, sometimes.

Just now, she was on her own, though—eager for a bit of solitude, a chance to work out some of the frustrations that had build up under her skin and rumbled down in the depths of her. Her heat left her agitated, restless. Wanting to run, and fight, and no amount of wrestling and rough-housing with her sister was going to alleviate this specific ache.

Agitating. But, by now, a familiar enough sensation. She knew well enough that she could simply ride it out, with a bit of patience and distraction.

She hadn’t realized where her paws were taking her until she had arrived. It looked different now, of course, blanketed in snow, but her body remembered the location well. Where she had been reunited with her brother. Where she had taken a life.

The snow was disturbed, near where she had buried the body, and she wandered over to investigate.

The grave itself had not been breached, but there were signs of digging. Tracks around it, too. Her eyes narrowed, ears going back slightly. Coyotes? Scavengers, nosing about where they didn’t belong. She should have buried the body a bit deeper, but at the time they had been rushed. At the time, she had been sore, and exhausted, and overwhlemed, and there had been injured wolves with her. The ground had been cold.

Excuses.

The coyotes had not broken through more than the topsoil, but she thought it best not to take chances. Klass had been a murderer; he had tried to kill her brother; but he had fought them with surprising resilience and courage. He had left behind a mate. He deserved peace in his afterlife, not to be picked apart by coyotes.

Stones. There was a river nearby. She could move some stones over and pile them onto the dirt. And then perhaps she would trail the coyotes, see if one were close…that could be a nice distraction. Teach them a lesson. Keep her reflexes sharp. She had not hunted a coyote in a long time.

Resolved to this new plan, she started toward the river, looking for the largest stones she could carry in her mouth.

Tidus wasn’t doing great. He had gone home only to find Yuna missing, presumably looking for his dumb ass. And he had fled the coast, following her faded scent until he lost it. And then he just

Ran. As fast as he could, until he tripped over something and went tumbling in a whirl of snow and golden fur. His chest met the ground, leaving him wheezing for breath, attempting to pull himself back onto aching paws.

But really now, he had been running for a while. He just..needed a quick break.

Storm’s mouth was going numb from carrying rocks. Her jaw hurt, and the stiffness reminded her of the ache they had felt from grasping and shaking at the white wolf’s throat. It was not a pleasant memory, but she did not stop her task. There were already several stones stacked here, now, in the snow; perhaps just a few more would be needed, and then she might be able to begin tracking the coyotes.

She was deep in thought, but her ears flicked back, hearing the approach of another wolf before her brain could make sense of what it was.

She turned, curious, brows furrowing over emerald-bright eyes at the approaching wolf. He was running, and her gaze reflexively lifted to search behind him, in case he was being chased. But she saw no one else, and her eyes snapped to attention on his bright pelt.

“Are you all right?”

Tidus panted, eyes shooting up at a voice. She was pretty, he would say that, but not as pretty as the girl he was looking for. He bobbed his head, ears swiveling forwards.

Truthfully not miss. My mate has gone missing from our home and I’m out looking for her.” He said, trying to at least be polite. He didn’t know if this female was in heat or not. And he would only prefer to mate with his mate, not this female too.

Or maybe she wasn’t in heat and Tidus was overthinking things.

The tension that gathered around her sinewy legs and shoulder muscles eased up, slightly. He did not seem particularly threatening, which was encouraging. She’d had a bad run of luck with strange males, between Klass and Randy; it was good that not every wolf she met in this spot was going to be a problem for her.

But the mention of a missing mate set her ears forward, interest piqued.

“What is her name?” She thought back to the dark female in the glen, the one who had spoken of being tied to another but had not given a name or description for her beau. “And where is your home?”

If she was to be any assistance at all, she thought, she’d need that information.

She slid a rock into place with her back paw, edging away from the grave. This male probably did not want to go hunting coyotes with her. That was a shame. But maybe she could go after he was done? Surely he would not want to linger here.

The thought that her heat might make a strange male uncomfortable—or incite some other sort of feeling—had not occurred to her. Storm was not a wolf who was accustomed to fearing the intentions of other wolves.

Tidus blinked over at her, slowly bringing himself to his paws.

Yuna Nami. Creamy fur, one blue eye, one green eye. I live on the beach with the Silu Tribe and I got lost during the cyclone. She’s pregnant miss, and not at home.” He said, trembling in place

At least he was swift with the replies, and informative. She appreciated that. It was harder to help someone who didn’t cooperate.

“I haven’t seen her,” she said, thinking back briefly over the handful of wolves she had met. “But I’ll keep an eye out.”

Her brow furrowed as she parsed his words. She wasn’t sure where the Silu Tribe was, or what a beach was, but she did recall the cyclone.

“Do you think she might have gone looking for you, and gotten lost as well?”
