Seeker had come here with every intention of calling the pack that lived here, and he took a deep breath as he stepped into their trees. He was up early, unable to sleep, and it was surely too early to cal yet. He scanned the area nervously - nobody around. That was okay, he’d gotten here two seconds ago and he hadn’t yet found the courage to howl. Kaete had assured him this pack was friendly, but Seeker had had some poor experiences with supposedly friendly packs, so…

Almost automatically, his nose twitched, his jaws parted and he inhaled deeply as he began testing the scents around here. His mind catalogued them, ever scanning for potential threats.

Pack scent. Rogue, older male. Pack pee, border marking. Rogue puppy, ill. Pack scent. Theodore…

WOOOOOAAAAAAH WHAT GO BACK GO BACK WAIT JUST A MINUTE NOW.

Seeker exploded violently up out of his cautious walk like a snake had latched onto his ankle. It hadn’t, he never would have been stupid enough to step on a snake whatever the season, but anyone could have been forgiven for thinking that if they’d been there to see the way Seeker jumped up and twisted in midair. He came down with his paws already moving and shot over to press his nose to the snow-dusted ground.

Days. It was only days ago that Theo had been here. Right here. For a moment Seeker scrabbled at nothing.

Then he put his muzzle up and he howled and he howled, forgetting he was standing on a pack’s border at dawn and it was too early whoops sorry any Cadre wolves who liked winter lie-ins. Then, for good measure, he capered out into the snow like the yearling he was.

“SONYAAAAAAAAAAA! STOOOOOOORMFROOOOONT!” He roared out, voice ringing with delight and relief in what was clearly a total reversal of his cautious and often negative nature. He couldn’t help it. This was the best thing ever.

Theodore had been here. He could track him from here! There were no pawprints, it had snowed since the puppy had passed here and filled those in, but his nose never lied. A light snowfall hadn’t destroyed the scent trail. He’d headed west from here. 

He wouldn’t loose it this time. He would find him. And he would stop letting everyone important in his life down.

Okay. Another howl. She’d been wanting to go on a hunt upon waking, but. Another howl of a stranger.

Sigh.

She moved with alertness, ears cupping forward, listening for another’s response. Within another few seconds of no answer, she sent out her own howl.

What what what whaaaaat.

Woah no well not a stranger! Oh yeah Seeker, you were standing on another pack’s borders, that’s right. WHERE WERE STORM AND SONYA.

He danced around a few more steps, energy exploding from every strand of fur. He was still more than able to smell Theo and fighting a very strong urge to just bolt after the trail and let Storm and Sonya catch him up when they could.

Should he wait? This pack might have seen him. Surely Kaete was right, she’d been so nice, and if this pack had let Theo come and go, surely they were okay?

Natural caution and over-the-top excitement were somewhat at war with one another here.

His ears trained in the direction of the howl, waiting for pawsteps. “Sorry!” He called for good measure. “Excuse me?” Try to stay polite and not like you were dragged up pulled backwards through a forest, Seeker.

Storm had been working her way steadily toward the general direction of the lake, following her brother’s trail in a sort of circuitous path. She would veer in, from time to time, to check the scent, before bounding off in another direction, exercising some of her pent-up energy by mauling a rabbit or stalking the trail of a fox or, on at least one memorable occasion, tracking and hunting a pair of coyotes.

But she was not so far away when she heard his voice, and she turned to head in that direction, intrigued by the excitement in his tone.

((bleh post is bleh. Also, arriving in 1-2 rounds!))

Sorry, excuse you.

“Uh huh,” she called back, emerging into view. When she did get there, it was to see a puppy-looking adult standing there.

“Alright. Name and reason for the racket, kid,” Ryd greeted with an altogether casual voice, tail flicking.

Seeker rolled an eye back a little nervously when a small but quick to speak female appeared on the scene. Immediately asking for his name, however casually. That got him crabwalking sideways quick enough to broaden the distance, but it didn’t completely dampen his mood.

Once he had enough space to dodge easily if she didn’t like anything he had to say his front half lowered slightly, tail wiggling behind him in what was almost the start of a playbow, a hopeful posture.

“Sorry for the noise but I just found Theodore’s scent here!” He rambled out, tail whipping back and forward at the name. “Was he okay? He’s small and white with black ears, eyes and nose, did you see him?” There was no hiding the eager hope in Seeker’s words, his emerald eyes shining.

“Seeker!” Storm barked from a distance, seeing the tell-tale golden-black floof of his tail. It was hard to miss, even from a way’s away and from the back.

She couldn’t quite make out the words from here, yet, but she caught a general tone of excitement, underwritten by his enthusiastic body language. Either that small wolf he was talking to was a very dear friend, or he had just received some good news, she thought.

Thinking back over how grim and anxious her baby brother seemed to always be, she figured the only thing that could possibly cause such an enthusiastic display would be news of Theodore.

That was heartening.

She noticed, however, that Sonya was absent, and that worried her. Had she strayed too far to heed the call? Was she wrapped up in something? Was she in trouble?

Storm herself was on the tail end of her heat, and she was edgy and uncertain.

She was also, as they would see when she got near, a little beat up. There were a couple of fresh bite wounds on a foreleg, and some deep scratches over the bridge of her nose.

Sonya was quite far away, and Sonya was, uh, also a little roughed up.  It had been an aggravating week.  Her heat was on its way out, and she was tracking her siblings while running on hormonal fumes.

The calls made it much easier, though she realized she was a long way west of them.  Squeaker sounded excited, and really that was enough to put the pep back in her step.  She began to run, stopping to bark back when she heard her sister return the summons.

Theeeodooooore.

Ryd huffed at the boy’s hyperactivity, and it was reaching her whether she wanted to be a grump or not. So she tossed him a grin, and also to the other girl who called him Keeper—

Wait. What?

“I’m Keeper,” Ryd huffed, having clearly misheard. “And yeah, Theo’s been around here. Bit on the skinny side for a kid in winter, but he’s just fine. Why are you looking for him?”

Seeker hopped in place like an over-excited fawn.

“Here Stormfront!” He woofed back, tail whipping. He switched his gaze back to Keeper, gaze alive with life and hope as he stared at her like she’d awarded him ten free deer. “Oh she meant- no it doesn’t matter, Theo’s been here, he’s fine, he’s fine!” He rambled like the yearling he was, half-yelling the last repeat back to Storm.

“He’s my Brother!” He explained in rapid-fire speech for Keeper’s sake, though he didn’t explain the distinction that would likely be lost on her. “I have to go find him! Thank you, thank you!” In his over the top exuberance he actually bounded at the smaller female and aimed a wild lick at her face.

Theo was fine. Theo was fine!

Storm pulled up to a stop beside her brother, taking a moment to parse his excited words.  He had the zoomies like their sister got, and she was so distracted by the surprise of this enthusiasm that she nearly missed its content. 

Then it snapped into place, and her head snapped up, her maw splitting into a grin despite the scratches cutting over the bridge of her nose.

“Well what are we waiting for? Where is he?!”

His enthusiasm was infectious, and she pounced at his side to give a playful ear tug.

His brother? He never mentioned a brother. Only a sister. Though… Brotherhood. Right. She got it.

“Well, he left by his own choice. I don’t know why you need to hover over him, but there’s your trail.”

Seeker wasn’t wasting his time sticking around telling some cynical lady who thought it was just fine to let puppies roam on their own in winter why it wasn’t a good idea to let puppies roam on their own during winter. He was in too high spirits now to let the words bring him down.

With a little yip he yanked his ear out of Stormfront’s teeth and snapped happily at her cheek. “Tell Sonya to catch up!” He laughed, then with an all-over body wiggle he wheeled about and darted off, along the trail.

Running, running with two of his sisters behind him and Theo’s scent in his nose after so long, stretching every muscle, felt like the best thing in the world.

(Exit exit zoomy exit!))

Ryd may as well not have even existed. Later, when looking back on this moment, Storm wouldn’t be able to recall who had told them, or whether there had been anyone there at all.

Reeling off a series of yodeling, excited calls out to their sister, Storm tore after her brother, excitedly pouncing at his heels.

When Sonya caught up, Squeaker would show her the smell. And with that nose on the job, there was no at Theo would stay lost. This ridiculous quest would be done.

Off they went, a total cacophony of a family. She went to go… do that hunt.
