And So She Wore Her Heart Upon Her Sleeve

The room was silent but for the sound of Achilles’ ragged breathing. The uniform rising and falling of her chest as she lay on her side the only reminder that she was, in fact, alive. She’d been in this state for days following her encounter with Mari, and the small woman had almost become accustomed to the piercing silence and the chilling absence of another’s body against hers.

There was no use in dwelling upon heartache, after all. It wasn’t good for her, nor the tiny creatures residing within her. Emotions bottled deep inside, her expression remained stoic in nature. There was no sadness. There were no tears. Only a cold, agonizing numbness and the crippling realization of her loneliness.

She wasn’t as alone as she seemed, however, for the children were becoming more and more active by the minute, and it wasn’t long before the acrobatic creatures tumbling about within her overtook every bit of numbness she felt. A strange feeling welled up within her, and Achilles knew that it must be time.

A brief bark for assistance was all she could muster before the contractions started. It took her by surprise, making her pant and whimper at the sudden spike of horrific pain shooting through the lowermost part of her body.

It wasn’t but a few moments until her first child made its way into the world.  Achilles’ breath hitched as she looked down at the thing, its fur a striking mirror image of its father’s. Her heart filled with both that of love and dread, and she leaned down to groom the whelp. Only, something was wrong.

Why was it so cold?
Why wasn’t it breathing?

Realization hit the woman like a ton of bricks and a strangled sob escaped her lips.  Dead.  Achilles hastily shoved the thing away. Refusing to look at it. Refusing to acknowledge it’s brief existence.

It was better this way. Better to ignore the corpse than to come to terms with what had just happened.

She hardly even had time to calm herself before the pups began rolling about inside of her once more, fighting to see whom would get to witness the world first.

Orion hadn’t meant to walk in on this, but a bark within the caves as he lingered in the pool drew him out. It sounded liked Achilles, though he had not seen her in some time. And as he approached the source, the scent became overwhelming and he realized what he had walked into.

Oh. Oh no! This was…Oh no.

Whiskey’s mate. Whiskey wasn’t here and wouldn’t be here. Orion felt a bit nauseous as Achilles sort of took shape in front of him, the unmoving bean on the floor an indication of what he was now audience to.

Um. Who did he…What did he?

“Alina!” Orion whipped his head around, terrified, uncertain of what he was supposed to do. So he called his mate despite not really wanting to bother her because she was also very close to going through this same thing and.

Oh heavens.

“Are…Are you OK?” Orion asked, looking back at her then at the pup that still wasn’t moving. His breath started coming a bit faster.

Alina was pregnant, and therefore quite round pups, meaning she was not quite as fast as she used to be. Still, at the sound of her mates desperate call, Alina came waddling down as fast as she could, paws tapping hastily along the cave floor as her mate came into view.

Oriom, and… Achilles? Alina paused, assessing the situation, a small bundle lay pushed to the side. A bundle that was a wolf pup, a wolf pup that was already dead.

Dread reared up in Alina, but she pushed it aside, rushing to her Kins side, knowing now that whiskey would not be here.

“Its okay Achilles, I am here, deep breaths.” She murmured, before turning to Orion. “I have moss in the cache, grab some and soam it in water please.”

Her previously tightly shut eyes came open at the sound of approaching footsteps and her heart nearly leaped from her chest in hopes that it was Whiskey.

But, no. Whiskey wasn’t coming back.

Instead, she was met with the vibrant green eyes of Orion, who, quite frankly, looked even more freaked out than she was. Achilles shuffled uncomfortably in her spot. Being alone with a male you hardly knew whilst birthing pups was… Unpleasant, to say the least. Luckily for her, though, his mate was soon to follow after his call, and Achi was quickly soothed upon seeing the healer.

She would take care of her. Everything was alright.

Maybe the others wouldn’t be dead.

They sure as hell didn’t feel like it, at least.

Thank heavens Alina showed up and immediately sent him for moss and water.

Orion nodded hard and ran off.

Orion was off to get water, leaving both the females together. Alina offering comforting licks as she allowed the mothers body to do what it was meant to do.
“Youre doing great Achillies. “ There wasnt much else she could do, but wait.

Alina’s comforting licks seemed to have cured a good bit of Achilles’ anxiety, and soon her breathing was back to normal.

It wasn’t long before the next set of contractions started. She tried her best to maintain steady breaths, her eyes closing momentarily to better focus on the task at hand.

The pain seemed to have passed quicker than it came, and in only a few moments she was staring down at the living, breathing bundle next to her.

It was alive. He was alive, actually, and Achilles could hardly contain her overwhelming feelings of love and admiration towards the creature. She quickly moved to grooming him.

His fur was a snowy white like her own. It already appeared to have the fluffy texture, much to her amusement. Achilles knew instantly what to call him.

“Bacchus.” She breathed, craning her neck to lick diligently at her son.

Everything was warm, and he was content to stay that way. The unborn pup rolled about, eyes closed and arms outstretched as he pawed around in the womb. Realizing that for some peculiar reason, there was suddenly more space, he squished around trying to nestle his way until he hit a corner of some sort. The yet unnamed child was oblivious that maybe moving around so much was hurting his Momma, but then again, maybe she wasn’t aware that he was just too uncomfortable unless he did lots of rumbling around her belly trying to find rediscover the comfort he’d had before the disappearance of whatever had taken up so much space.

As he settled in, something pushed against him, destroying the single moment he’d recollected that comfort. Whatever it was, it pushed against him again, shoving him outwards and away from the warmth that he’d known these many months. In a flash, he was ripped from all that he had ever known and entered into the chilly world of the cave wolves. He opened his mouth to protest, to cry out in plea to return him to which he’d come from, but was immediately kept silent as warmth drew near him again. The feeling of soft fur against his own, the repetitive caress of his mother’s tongue cleansing him, kept him happy.

As the moments passed, he forgot all about that world he’d been in, completely enveloped in the first few moments of life here, focused only on that heat and affection in which his mother could provide. The sound of his name fell on deaf ears, but the vibration of his mother’s throat against the back of his neck felt nice, rumbling through him and sending him right back into slumber.

Alina could almost feel her heart burst as the first pup was born, amber eye studying the tiny creature as it latched on for milk, Achillies offering gentle licks of support.

Would her pup be the same? Would they come out tiny and fluffy as that?

Alina heard the whisper of a name, and she smiled.

Bacchus.

“Such a beautiful child and name.”

She nodded. A well-fitting name for such a pure being.

“Named after the brave soul who attempted to save my sister.” Achilles mumbled, watching in admiration as Bacchus began to suckle. She smiled, enjoying the peacefulness of the moment.

The peacefulness did not last for long, however, as soon she felt the now-familiar feeling of the next child tumbling about in her gut.

“There’s another one!...” she gasped.

There was little time to matvel at tge newborn, Achillies stating another was coming. Bending Alina crouched close to Achillies, sending her reassuring thoughts, all while waiting for Orion to return.

Utterly exhausted at this point and, quite frankly, growing quite tired of having children within her womb, Achilles breathed a sigh. The contractions began once more, and Achilles found herself struggling to keep her composition. This one seemed…. Much more eager to leave the warmth of Achi’s womb than the others. The woman kept pushing, however, and eventually the small bundle of joy made its way into the world.

A girl. Alive and…. Active, to say the least. Squirming much more than Bacchus, the creature kept nearly wiggling out of Achi’s grasp as she attempted to clean it. Achilles giggled, helping it towards her teat, and continuing to clean her.

“Margarita.” She whispered softly to the deaf ears of her daughter. A lively name for a lively pup.

Marg didn’t know of the turmoil that occurred outside of her snug little home. But, something went wrong.

Her buddy, the one pressed against her most of the time she had been in here, vanished. She kicked in retaliation, shrieking her silent fury.

Then, like a watery slip and slide, she was on the move. Her body crested, then she was on the cold hard ground. She squealed, squirming about like some kind of worm.

She rowed and ruffed. At least in her mind. On the outside, she was just squeaking.

Then, she was guided to something warm. Fluffy. And…smelling pretty great. She latched onto a teat, sucking away.

Orion rushed back in, jaws full of sopping wet moss. He had been frantic and nervous trying to collect it, and really wasn’t too eager to come back. But, ya know, he had to. Nervously, Orion moved back into the space, keeping close to Alina as he carefully placed the moss on the ground.

The smell and sound of pups was overwhelming now and he cautiously stole a glance at them. But only for a moment. With a small lick at Alina’s ear, Orion backed out of the space, certain that he would not be welcome should he hang around too long.

/exit unless stopped

Alina smiled towards Orion, leaning towards him for a brief moment before grasping the wet moss and placing it closer to Achillies. The second pup was born, being given the name Margarita, yet another beautiful name.

“You are doing so well, drink some now.” Would there be more?

Orion came with a bunch of drenched moss but was gone before Achilles could muster up a ‘thank you’. She sat there a moment, weak but nonetheless determined to finish what she’d started. With the encouragement of Alina, Achilles craned her neck to drink a bit of water.  It was refreshing, re-moistening her incredibly dry mouth, and cooling her enough to allow a bit more movement. She looked back down.

“I.. I think there’s one more.” One more pup. Would it be dead? Would it be alive? Would it… Look like Whiskey? The stillborn did, But the two alive pups seemed to resemble Achilles more. As horrible as it seemed; she hoped the last one would, too. She… wasn’t exactly in the mindset to stare at a living, breathing mirror image of Whiskey.
