She led the way, stomach a bubbly mess of nerves and spiking excitement and adrenaline and mostly she was on a hunt but like on steroids.

“Keep up!” she yapped cheerily to her charge. Killing a dude. There were gonna go killing a dude. It was warm and stuff with rain and mud everywhere splattering all over her fur. Good setting for a death march, yeah? Sure, might as well convince yourself of that when you were marching on a suicide mission.

But Ryd wouldn’t die. She was Keeper of the Cadre. Or like. Maybe she’d die, but surely they’d remember her and stuff. She was unforgettable.

Sonya was running hard, the impact of earth thumping bracingly into her elbows and shoulders.  That little female was running chase-me fast, and Sonya had to work to keep up, her bulk tumbling boulder-like down the hills as she tried to put everything together.

Murdering?  Elliot.  Who scared the ghost out of poor little Albie, tried to kill him defenseless like Klass had with Squeaker.  Elliot was down in the hills, maybe.

She knew better than to go murdering without being sure about it beforehand.  She didn’t want to take that lesson twice.  It was hard, hard to stop and think when her heart was pounding, when she was chasing cute little ladies off to some adventure but YOU DIDN’T WANT TO GO ACCIDENTALLY MURDERING, Sonya.  That thought sounded like Seeker actually.

...Okay.  Okay.

“Hey!”  She barked out, speeding up to try and get into Ryd’s line of vision.  “I’m gonna go tell my sister!  About the murder!”  As she spoke, the math of the situation started to clear up before her - little wolf, yearling wolf.  Unless Elliot was old and blind, they were running into a bad idea.  “You’re gonna need help and we’re real strong!”

Faith was keeping up, but barely. She lagged behind some, disappointed in the lack of excitement she had expected to feel. Instead, her stomach was a mess of nerves.

Maybe this was stupid.

The Cadre needed them. Bali and Rota needed them. Albus needed them. Rob didn’t really need them, but Faith didn’t want to leave him alone regardless.

Faithful didn’t want to…die. Was that something that could happen? She knew she deserved life more then “King” Elliot, but he had followers and she just had Ryd, and this other girl who’s name she didn’t even know and Faithful didn’t even know how to kill someone.

Ashamed of her fear and nerves, Faithful kept quiet, trailing slightly behind the others with a frown on her face. When the girl she didn’t know spoke up, rounded ears perked and orange eyes turned to look at her. Calling her sister for more help sounded like a greet idea, but calling their mission “the murder” made Faithful’s gut clench unpleasantly. “Good idea! We’ll come?” she called, looking to Ryd for reassurance on the second bit. Anything to delay the actual confrontation.

Faith answered the new girl before she did, and Ryd cocked her head as she looked back at them and paused.

Were they gonna need help? Yeah, you know what, if they were gonna go ahead and march into some shithole with a guy who had fucked up supporters, then, uh. Probably would be nice to just be more than the three of them, probably.

“Uh, sure!” she decided, jarred from her conviction that she would probably be dying soon or something. Would one more wolf help? Well, it was better than no more wolves.

She looked to the nameless one, to lead the way.

“I’m Ryd, by the way. I dunno if you caught that. And this is Faith.”

Sonya halted her stampede, which took some time, and huffed and puffed.  These little girls were Looking at her in a way that made her want to wobble awkwardly between forepaws.  Also, names and directions were arriving in her brain in no order, all at the same time.

She squinched her eyes shut.

Storm would howl, and she would howl, and they would all come together.  Someone could explain…that there was a bad Elliot, although if she knew anything about that it was, bad was not simple.  Usually she would say Storm could figure that complicated stuff out.  But Storm was not always right about killing.  Hoooooo boy.  Complicated situation for this bull in a china shop.

She opened one eye, and peeped it at the pretty grown one.  Ryd or Faith.  “Wait,” she attempted, “hang on.”  Look at the baby one.  Look at the fluffy one.  Eye Contact.  Leadership.  “Have you guys…done murders before?”

Did she sound parental?  She was trying for a parental tone.

Faith grinned at her name, turning to follow the still unnamed wolf.

At hang on, Faith met her gaze curiously. Have they done a murder. She wished the girl would stop using that word, and it made her stomach flip again as she swallowed. Ugh, she wasn’t a murderer, she was trying to kill one!

“Well. Uh. No.” she admitted, glancing nervously towards her Keeper. Would Ryd be mad that she didn’t know what she was doing? Faith hoped not. How hard could it be, honestly?

Then a new thought dawned on her. Had Ryd killed someone before? The small wolf had always struck Faithful as the fiercest sort of leader, and she had just assumed the other had probably cut down numerous bad guys in her life time. Her chest tightened at the possibility that they were both going in blind here.

Faithful wanted to take down Elliot, she really did. For Albus and every other wolf he and his stupid supporters had tormented, but after watching Bali collapse she suddenly felt very aware of her own mortality and wasn’t sure she was willing to die over this.

“Almost. Dude zoomed away when he realized I meant business,” she shrugged lightly, thinking of Vandal in particular, that fucker.

She looked from one to the other.

“It’s easy, really. Just think of him as a deer who really needs to fucking die. He just has teeth instead of antlers. If his followers show up though, well. We’ll just have to see what kinda shitshow that turns into.”

Sonya’s paws went shuff, shuff, shuff in the snow and mud.  That little one was sure.  She hadn’t killed a person before, but she was REAL sure.  It was hard not to go along with somebody who was sure.

“He tried to eat Albie, huh.”  Sonya stared vaguely down at her paws, flexing her toes in the slush.  “I guess, um, we can go get my sister, and go look at Elliot, and I’ll figure out if it’s okay to kill him when we get there.  Okay?”  She looked up with a hopeful tail wag.  Sonya was a maybe on the murder thing, but she loved helping.

After this, she reoriented herself, tasting the air and warming up a howl for her sister.  The call started out as a series of excited rising bays, until she found a note that felt good and held it.  The tone ought to tell Storm that she had found something interesting and needed a partner!

She probably should have gone to the ocean.

She’d said she would, after all, and even though it felt right to stay close to the hills, to stay close enough for Seeker to catch up eventually, it still felt like lying.

And, also, Sonya kept running off and doing stuff without her. Rude.

At that particular moment, Storm was sniffing around, trying to find the runaway sister in question, and so she was a bit closer than she might have otherwise been when the call went up. Well, she sounded excited! Maybe it was something good. Maybe she’d found Emma. Maybe she’d found the bear!

Lifting up her head, she called out in a string of answering bark-howls, and trotted off in that direction.

((arriving next round))

Sorry for the wait -wails apologetically-

Ryd had…not killed anyone either. She felt some inexplicable relief at that, unsure if it was because the girl kept saying ‘murder’ or that maybe this meant they wouldn’t go through with it. Which just made her feel small and weak and—

Elliot be damned, they were going through with it. Well, at least they were going to look at him and assess. But the girl mentioned an ‘Albie’ and she perked.“That sounds like an okay plan,” she said, because three non-murders against an evil Elliot and his supporters sounded like a worse plan. “You know Albus?”

The girl then gave a howl, and Faith’s ears folded back and the sudden loudness of it. There was a response and she looked in the direction, then back to the girl, hoping she’d say how she knew Faithful’s brother.

(It’s fine, sorry for the one liner, just background her <3)

“Sounds good,” she nodded, then listened to them talk as they waited.

Sonya’s face lit up and her whole body did a tiny restrained little dance at Storm’s response.  She loved her sister, did you know?  Feeling happy and warm and completely absent of murder, she turned to look back at Faith all bright-eyed.  “Albie, Albus, little snowy white boy?  You’re his kin, right?”  Her tail wagged.  “I met him west of here this winter!”

She had really liked Albus, and so she hopped forward and frisked around a bit, pausing with one paw in the air.  “We went and he taught me some stuff about fishing?  He’s a smart little guy!” 

Sonya’s paw plopped down.  She was having such a good day!!

There were two strange wolves here, and neither of them were Emma.

That was disappointing.

Except, wait! She recognized the little one. That was the wolf who had told them how to find Theo!

A bitter little part of her kind of regretted that, now, but it was what it was. 

”Sonya!” she barked. ”What’s going on?”

She trotted up near the group and looked around expectantly.

She nodded at the girl’s description, something in her swelling with pride that Albus had taught this girl to fish. Her Albus. Teaching and fishing and being smart. It was the best thing she could have heard. Maybe….maybe this meant he wasn’t sad anymore?

“I’m his sister,” she said with a smile, unsure what ‘kin’ meant. If this wolf knew Albus, surely she could understand why anyone who tried to hurt him deserved to die. Would Albus even call her his sister? She was pretty sure he hated her. Sigh.

Sonya! Ah, so THAT was the girls name! Faith turned face the newcomer, smile on her face. “We’re gonna go kill a crazy murderer. Or, at least look at him and then maybe kill him,” she explained. She felt better knowing that if they decided today was not a good day to actually kill Elliot, they could leave and go home to Rab and Makki. She wanted to talk to him at the very least, see why he’d attacked her brother. Not that she believed anything he said would change her mind.

King Elliot deserved to die, either now or later.

Oh, well, hey. Both knew Albus and also here came this girl’s sister. That was just great. She was even mildly familiar!

“Yep. What she said!”

And uh… now that they were all here? Let’s go?

Sonya beamed at Faith.  Sister!!!  This word had only good connotations in her head and it made her love Faithful immediately and completely.  Adding to this wonderful atmosphere, Storm was running up, and of course Sonya had to prance out to meet her and energetically boop her face.

Her fast-talking new friends made her remember to focus.  “You know that little white boy I met?  Some guy tried to kill him and he’s out in the hills, um,” uh oh, she was trying this again and there still wasn’t a super great reason to do murders.  “Um, they were gonna go try to kill ‘im.  I said maybe we could help if he’s dangerous.  If it’s okay.  Like.  He’s just a bad guy who lives by himself and no people who are nice need him.”

Brilliantly said.
