Jote had relative knowledge of the areas east of where she currently was from way back when. The eastern desert was where she had originally entered the valley through and knew the coast didn’t live over there. Now she had to guess if it was south, north, or west. She figured she’d head west simply because it looked to be wide open for a while longer. Also, given the plentiful knowledge of some of the packs of the area that Sunfall handed to her on a silver platter, she figured she’d avoid going south as to not run into the Kingdom brats.
Adequate rest had treated her well, feeling completely renewed as she continued her journey to the coast. Even her injuries were no longer painful, just a tad bit sore, and she no longer limped on her back left leg. Every once in a while, if she moved her neck just right, she could feel a slight sting in her nape from the minor cut that lingered there although it was not enough of a sting for her to react to it. More just a reminder it was still healing. Her ear no longer throbbed, but the dried blood remained. She still couldn’t find a good place to rinse that off at considering most fresh water sources were still either frozen over or just cold as hell.
The silver wolf ambled through the plains, paws occasionally slipping on some areas of the ground that had iced over from the season nearing its end only to be frozen again because nature couldn’t make up its damn mind. Today it was snowing lightly, the white flakes gently hugging the ground and helping ever so slightly with Jote’s traction as she crossed through.
She’d learned of the Firewing Brotherhood, and their leader Valentina - who sounded less than pleasant - and the Evergreen wolves who were apparently equally as unpleasant, though she didn’t know where either pack resided. Hopefully wandering through the heart of the plains would help her avoid such unpleasantries. In the meantime, she wondered what the coast was like. She’d never been to one before, though she’d heard of them growing up. Excitement began to fill her core once again.
