Val played by Koeyohte
Thrya played by Shadowphoenix21
The days were beginning to run together for the male.  It had seemed as if only yesterday he had been keeping guard over the pregnant female of the island.  He almost snorted as he brushed a low hanging branch.  The fact that a pregnant female had somehow managed to seek aid and chased the proud Vultures from their captors’ lands was embarrassing.  It was humiliating.
Valentin did not blame Osha, though, as much of the pack seemed to quickly have done.  While it was on her, he understood his position below her was to follow.  That was all.  And yet… something was not right.  She had been neglecting them.  She had ignored his pleas to speak with his Mistress and she had not come from her den in days.  Perhaps the Ancestors - if they really did exist - had punished her for her attempt to put Jova in their place?

The grey she wolf walked along keeping watch for any prey as she headed towards the Draugar boarder. Her head still felt conflicted about the whole mess the Vultures has stirred. But she would try and tell someone from Nahimana’s pack that their alpha was alive, as well as the rest of the message she was asked to tell them.
Thrya went to step into Draugar’s territory. She hesitated, her front paw hovering above the invisible barrier on the ground. The last time she had wondered into Draugar was pure accident, lost in thought. She was lucky not have been attacked, ending up so close near the pups. Now her pack had captured one of theirs. No, that would not be wise, she thought. Even though she could defend herself against one or two wolves. It was best not give them an excuse to attack.
She turned around and walked over to sit under the shade of a tree. Safe in neutral territory. She would wait to see if anyone would come close to the boarder. Thrya looked around. A sm

What is loyal and what isnt?
Shadowphoenix21 as Thrya
TheDevilsLotus as Amadeus
Amadeus stretched out the kinks in his legs as he awoke to the smell of sage that was a beacon of his home. It was not often he was without his bed mate, Ekon, but such was an occasion, and it wasn't that Amadeus minded any. After all other things had to be prepared for. Time for fun came when it was most opportune.
He had yet to hear anything from the Ancestors, which was beginning to trouble him. Surely something was amiss if they refusing to contact him? He had tried his best to reassure Osha of these concerns, but now Amadeus was feeling the inklings of something being wrong.
The Priest did not show much of it, though, as he sauntered into the camp, seeing the familiar faces of his pack mates but one catching his eye in particular. One of the newer wolves, whom he had not yet gotten acquainted with - Thrya. And it appeared she was... observing the Knights?
How interesting...
With a fatherly smile Amadeus sauntered ov

Two starving alphas and a little hunter

Thrya played by Shadowphoenix21
Alina’s eyes had not opened in hours.  As they fluttered open, her eyes stung.  They were dry - drier than they ever had been while living on the island, salted by sea water.
Weakly, Alina lifted her head.  It was going to be getting dark soon.  It would be yet another end to a painful, disappointing day as the alpha starved in the pit.  Alina glanced toward her companion, Nahimana, who lay nearby.  The time alone in the pit had not been kind to either wolf, but Alina found herself more concerned for Nahimana’s growing children in her belly.
Tan fur littered the small area of the pit Nahimana had chosen as her makeshift 'den.' A few weeks into her pregnancy, the expectant mother's nesting drive had kicked in. The cleanest old bedding she could find, assorted pelt and feather scraps, and her own tufts of fur made up the ru

Obey and Protect - Jova x Vulture Plot
The pack swam across the cold lapping ocean, heading towards the little island pack at their Mistresses command. Thrya swam obediently with the pack. She was loyal, but she was also worried but tried her best to hide that fact. This little island pack was Astrid’s pack! One of her new found friends. She didn’t want to kill or injure one of Astrid’s pack, what would her friend think? But she had to listen to her leader.  
Thrya thought quickly as the pack got closer to the shore. Perhaps if she got hold of one of Astrid’s pack mates first she could insure one would be less harmed then the others. Osha saw and quickly went after Astrid before Thrya could get to her first.
With Osha’s attack, the rest of the pack sprang from the ocean and went after the rest of the Jova wolves. Thrya spotted one dark grey wolf, with black markings, a white underbelly and a white stripe on her back, step out from behinds some tall green ferns where the beach meets the for

Shadowphoenix21 as Thrya
EternallyDrunkSmurf as Nahimana
Thrya walked carefully along the packs boarder. Cold snow crunching underneath her paws. She sniffed the area, making sure not to lose the trail. Originally her walk had started out as a spare, causal patrol. Any excuse to escape the slight tension in the air back at the main den site. But then a certain scent along the border had caught her full attention.
No one had officially said anything for the tension but there were rumours. And this scent was supposably the cause of it. Apparently several of the pack’s males had slept with one particular female. Thrya’s ears folded back in annoyance. She didn’t know what was worse, the males not having a sense of loyalty to their pack and potentially suppling pups outside the pack while their own pack’s numbers dwindled. Or the fact that this particular female hated the Vultures and being an alpha should know better.  
Annoyed, Thrya followed the

Thrya as a cat

8+ Bones!

I originally wanted to do Thrya as a cat because she is so kind and nice then realised not all cats are nice. So she is cat because they are excellent hunters. I also love tabby cats.

I had every intention to do realistic markings but couldn't find any good references. So just went with it.

Rough, drawing, done free hand on the tablet, just having fun and practicing speed and drawing without stress, on my few days off.

Val played by Koeyohte
Thrya played by Shadowphoenix21

The days were beginning to run together for the male.  It had seemed as if only yesterday he had been keeping guard over the pregnant female of the island.  He almost snorted as he brushed a low hanging branch.  The fact that a pregnant female had somehow managed to seek aid and chased the proud Vultures from their captors’ lands was embarrassing.  It was humiliating.

Valentin did not blame Osha, though, as much of the pack seemed to quickly have done.  While it was on her, he understood his position below her was to follow.  That was all.  And yet… something was not right.  She had been neglecting them.  She had ignored his pleas to speak with his Mistress and she had not come from her den in days.  Perhaps the Ancestors - if they really did exist - had punished her for her attempt to put Jova in their place?

An irritated smirk shadowed the wolf’s face as he paused, sniffing a scent marker left by a Silvyn wolf.  The islanders were small, weak… and Morg’lo….  Valentin grumbled.  He was a traitor.  He was no longer fit to be a Vulture, though Valentin quickly found himself pondering just who might become the next best trusted.  Of course, he saw himself as most fit but he knew better than to pry.  Loneliness was setting in on the pack as Osha disregarded each and every member, and Valentin had found himself wandering  more and more.  The small but fresh wound across his muzzle from the pretty back female he had attempted to speak with stung as he licked his lips.  Friendship was something the Vultures pack did not hold near and dear, so what was he looking for?

Step by step the grey she wolf strolled through the forest. Lost in thought of all the pack members that had left. Irritated, they had no sense in loyalty but with all the things the Vultures had done, could she blame them? She didn’t know, all she knew that regardless of the fights they had started, the pack was family.    

Thrya stopped, as a fresh scent hit her nose, a Vulture was nearby! One of the males. Curious to see who and what they were up to the she wolf quietly stalked through the trees. She stopped and peered through the leaves.

Her heart did a little a flutter, it was the mysterious handsome one, Valentin, leader of the knights. She smiled at seeing him. But her smile quickly switched to concern, he seemed as lost in thought just as much as she was. He was also wearing a fresh new injury on his muzzle.  

She slowly and calmly stepped through the foliage as to not startle the male. “Hi Valentin. You look like you could use some company. Mind if I join you?” She smiled softly at him, flicking her tail in a friendly greeting.

Valentin was startled by the feminine voice of someone from behind him and he glanced quickly around.  He relaxed upon spotting Thrya.  She was easily the only other pack mate he had any true respect for - besides the Priest of course, although Valentin silently wondered just how lucrative his task was.  He smiled warmly at Thrya - he had appreciated her initiative since the first day she had arrived in the pack, and he had truly hoped she would stick around long enough for him to watch her grow into the young adult she now was.

“Hello, Thrya,” he replied, lowering his posture in acknowledgement of his fellow packmate.  “I would love for you to,” he stated, stepping to join her side.  “I was lost in thought… I fear for our Mistress.”  Valentin knew he was, probably, a bit too eager to please.  He knew he was good at his job but he also a subordinate and his love and respect for those above him overshone his own ambition.  He glanced toward Thrya.  There was an independent and free thinker.  She was polite but also knew what needed to be done - and got it there.

“How are you today?” Valentin asked, ignoring the strange feeling in his stomach.  Funny, Thrya had never quite impacted him for the longest time but now… there was something mature about her - something alluring.  Valentin grumbled inwardly to himself - he was not worthy.

Thrya beamed at his invite and quickly stopped herself from bounding over like a foolish deer. She calmly walked over to the male, to the space he had stepped aside for. Accidentally brushing against him. She lowered her head blushing, “whoops, sorry.” But he had felt so nice and warm.      

She listened to his concern about the mistress. “Ahh yes she has seemed a bit . . . distracted of late. Hopefully she will come back to us soon.” Thrya honestly thought that now after all the Jova stuff was over and with Derek in the pit, the mistress would be back to normal but maybe she just needed time to process things. Hopefully.  

“I am well thanks. And how are you?” she politely asked in return looking into his eyes. They were very intriguing, knowing and mysterious. He was the only male in the pack that seemed to truly understand the idea of loyalty. Thrya sighed inwardly to herself, pity, he was a higher up, way out of her league.

The moment of Thrya brushing against him had not had an immediate effect.  At first he had grinned at her as she seemed to be embarrassed.  Then he noticed her sheepish behavior and it was as though the feelings were contagious.  He looked away, but his ears pointed back in her direction.

“I am well, besides,” the male replied, looking back to his companion, indicating the mess the pack had got themselves into.  “I suppose we ought to be carrying… though after all that, I don’t doubt we will have a much more difficult time associating pleasantly with the rest.”  Valentin nodded his muzzle toward SIlvyn’s woods.  The Vultures’ reputation had never been one of soft fondness for their peers.  Instead, the pack had chosen to rise above and take what was needed for their lifestyle to survive.  It may not be polite, but it ensured their resolute necessities - those weaker than them were welcome to join the ranks, but at the cost of their individuality.  Valentin had been born into it - the pack was his life.

“So what does the SUmmer bring to your mind, miss Thrya?” Valentin asked, interested in discovering what the little hunter may aspire toward.


He didn’t seem mad at her when she accidently bumped into him. Which she was glad for. Actually he had turned away sheepishly himself after she had. That was cute. An action that had made her heart flutter again.  

The she wolf nodded, “Nice to hear you are well”. Her muscle tensed tightly. She knew what he meant. Meeting others was hard enough as it was, but now anyone from Vultures would be lucky if they were not growled at on the spot. “True Valentin. It will be much harder communicating with them.” Thrya sighed thinking about possible friends and allies lost. “It maybe be harder to talk and get information from outsiders. But at least we all still have each other.” That was a comfort she could keep. At least being his presence she felt better then she had in the last couple of weeks.

Thrya shrugged her shoulders “I have actually been practising and doing trails to better my skills and muscles. To be in the best shape as possible to try out for the Knights. But other than that I will see where summer leads me I guess.” She smiled towards the male and then looked off into the forest, smile dropping in thought. Maybe she should put effort into finding a mate this year. She was getting older. She shook her head, but that was a problem for another day.

Thrya turned back to face Valentin “And I am guessing you plan on taking on more big cats and winning for the rest of summer?” She joking teased, nodding her muzzle towards the fresh wound on his muzzle. It looked like it would sting.

Communicating - that was something he had never been good at.  Now the pack was cursed too.  When Thrya said that one another was something to nod to, Valentin found himself stutter.

“And the loners,” he blurted, the words jumbling together in an almost indiscernible sound.  “I mean… the loners, who have no standards set in the packs.”  Valentin recomposed himself, a invisible tug pulling him to look at Thrya again.  He had felt something similar for pretty females he had seen along his trek with Osha to get here.  Yet most of them he had left wailing in the snows, cursing him and the Vultures for raiding their food store.  His loyalty was to Osha, but it was potential romance that had made him glance back the first few times with an ounce of guilt.  It was both pathetic and inappropriate.

When Thrya suddenly mentioned she was interested in becoming a Knight apprentice, Valentin started.

“Really!  Have you mentioned this to Osha, by chance?  She never said a word of it to me.”  He glanced away but just for a moment.  An apprentice!  And not just any apprentice - the one companion he could not have hoped more for.  A warm enveloping feeling engulfed him as he laid his gaze back on her again.  “I would be more than pleased to take you on as my own,” he said, the feelings that were slowly taking hold becoming more confusing.  Clearly, he thought to himself, he enjoyed her company.  But was there a reason besides his own loneliness?  He had attempted small talk with a black female in the woods but she had sent him off with the gash across his muzzle.

He had let her, of course.

He laughed at Thrya’s jokes.  “Of course,” he replied with a wink.  “It seems chances are slim for us to do much else… gotta keep our standards up, eh?”

“Hmm the loners” Thrya’s mind flickered to the coyotes, Diego did say he knew Astrid. Maybe not all loners, but yes there would be others to talk to. “True the loners who have no friends in other packs would.” She hid her smile at his stuttering, it was adorable seeing the big brave knight stumble for words.  

The she wolf nodded, “I have been thinking about joining for a while. No I have not mentioned it to Osha, But Amadeus did encourage me to apply.” The priest did give a very good pep talk. “Oh really? I would be honoured to learn with you!” She swished her tail in happiness and beamed up at the male. A chance to be a knight, and to learn from the best! But something else was there other than the chance to be more helpful for the pack. A different kind of happiness and warmth. Thrya tried to put a name on it but seem to only be there when she glanced at the male.        

She turned away, face changing to disappointment trying to word a question, without her seeming weak. “I have a question, about being a knight that is. Can a female still join if one day she hopes to have pups?” What made her ponder this, ah yes there were females in the knights but they currently didn’t seem the maternal type. What would be the point in getting in the Knights only to be kicked out, one day, if she did find a mate?

She laughed at his reply. “That is true.” She bumped into his shoulder with her shoulder playfully.

The phrase “loners who have no friends in other packs” lit of an idea in Valentin’s mind but he tucked it away quickly for another day.  It was possible that Osha was losing her edge and an outside influence would be useful.

“Amadeus, that old man, hmm?  It is good to hear that the old fellow hasn’t lost his sense of conversationality just yet.”  Valentin laughed a brief, hearty bark-like sound.  Amadeus was a fine fellow and he was well learned in Osha’s Ancestors’ desires and ways.  Valentin had, despite his loyalty to the group, never quite adopted the mindset typically required, but he had learned early on to keep that to himself.  Out of sight, out of mind.

The red male’s tail swished a few times in a return signal of glee.  He hesitated at her question - ahh, there must be some other male.  Someone younger, more handsome and intriguing to the spry female.  Of course….  Valentin may have hoped once or twice that Thrya would grow into a dedicated young adult and that there was a slim chance for him to make his impression on her, but that was clearly passed.  He did frown slightly, brows knitted together in concern.

“I’m afraid that pup-hood might place your position within the pack at risk, yes.  It is an old and dated but secure ruling.”  Valentin shrugged.  “I suppose it is up to you to decide what you most desire - life as a mother, or as a Knight?”  At his question, Valentin found himself realizing that the response he had given had made the option of parenthood seem rather non- indulgent.  He paused and stammered quickly in addition, “but that is to say only if you mate outside of the Vultures.  If you were to, say… choose someone in our ranks, that would prove differently.”

Thrya Laughed light heartily at the males comment on the priest. “He does gives really good peps talks. If you ever need cheering up or inspiration.” Just best to stay away from the topic of his suitors, she finished in her head.

Thrya snorted. “A mate outside the pack? She shook her head. “Not my style Valentin. Loyalty to the pack first, unless of course we were all related. But that is not the case.” She went quiet and gazed off into the trees, tapping her claws as she contemplated his words. Motherhood or a Knight. An interesting but easily solved dilemma.

After a while she shrugged her shoulders. “I don’t have a mate, so I guess a knight it is then.” She glanced back at him, sighing “Truth be told Valentin, you are the only male that seems to understand the true meaning of loyalty in this pack.” An annoyed creased crossed her face when she thought of the sleeping habits of a couple of the other males in the pack. Then looking back at the red male, a pang sadness hit her, he was way out her league. “Whoever you choose as a mate one day will be very lucky.” She half heartedly smiled at him then looked back at the ground. Being a knight without ever having pups wouldn’t so bad. Right?

Valentin grinned.  Maybe he should asked Amadeus if eyeing Thrya at this stage in his Vulture career was any less wise a choice than he already assumed.  He nodded when Thrya said something along the lines of what he had hoped for.

“Settling for a Knight,” Valentin teased, running with the half-developed joke that had formed in his mind.  A moment later, he regretted saying it.  She wouldn’t take it the same way, surly - and even if she did, would she find it a tasteless joke?  He gulped, and glanced away, ears taking in the tapping of Thrya’s long claws.

“I think finding a suitable mate within the ranks is admirable.  It’s what I have hoped for, for a long time.”  Valentin sighed gently, looking just past Thrya, eyes unfocused.  But a heartbeat later, his eyes zipped quickly back to Thrya’s own.  He prided himself on his sense of dedication to the pack and how he served them all.  Thrya included.

“Thank you,” he replied, suddenly finding his voice to be soft and meek mannered.  Flustered he shook his hdea.  “Sorry, sorry, I uh… not used to um… compliments.”  He averted his gaze again.  His parents had been generous enough but no on ein the pack ever doled out kindness more than Thrya just had to him.  Her final sentiment stirred an odd emotion that was both sadness and hope simultaneously.

‘Settling for a Knight,’ – he had said, his voice said joke. But she caught an underlying tone hinting at something else. She tilted her head in question. But then she straightened back up and lightly headed butt him in the shoulder, playfully, smiling. She was probably just imagining the underline tone or overthinking it.
She heard him say ‘what he had hope for a long time’. “How come you haven’t got a mate already? Surely all the females would be after you?” She teased. Some new emotion hit her. Jealousy? The other females, surely would have his eye.  

“You’re welcome” She smiled towards him. She watched him fluster. “Aww not even if something goes to plan really well?” Actually the more Thrya thought about it, true, no one in the pack really gave out compliments, but no one worked for them either. We all just work for each other, for the pack.  

Thrya bumped his shoulder and Valentin grinned slightly at her, lips turning up at the ends.  He scowled jokingly at her next question.

“When you see the ladies lining up to see me, please - do alert me.  I would love to meet just one of them.”  He shook his head at her sentiment, suddenly embarrassed.  If only he could just bat his eyes in her direction, maybe, just maybe… she might begin to feel something.  Maybe he needed to feel something, too.  This was new to him, and he knew that it would be to Thrya as well and as the guilt, irritation and desire began to set in, Valentin nodded for her to follow him.

“Come, I could use some company on my way to checking on the area - there’s a loner wreaking havoc.  Could use a trusted pair of eyes on my back.”

She chuckled at his statement, emotion stirred and she blurted out “Well . . . there is this one, but she isn’t a higher up or even a knight. . yet. Just a hunter.” She smile flirtatiously at him. Then looked away both blushing and scowling at herself. She was being way to forward and so stupid! Her stomach felt as if she just eaten a bunch of live butterflies. How foolish he must think she is.  

At his nod to follow she happily obeyed. Enjoying the chance to be useful and to be in his company before he decides she was worth his time. “A loner wreaking havoc. They must be very bored or foolish” She mused out loud. She smiled with her head and tail up in alert, “I got your back!”

Valentin’s stomach seemed to flip in his throat, somehow.  He stared.  Did she just say what he thought she said?

Face becoming warm, Valentin ducked his head.  He stepped forward and rested it against Thrya’s in an intimate and trusting moment.  He paused, hoping she might still follow him.  A breath later, he stepped back.

“Let’s go find out what she is up to now,” he said with a grin.  He bowed just slightly, his tail wagging once.  He turned and bound away, glancing over his shoulder.  “Coming?”

Her heart pounded in her chest as Valentin leaned in close. As he turned around to leave she replied “Definitely!” She beamed and bounded after him. Tail wagging happily.

Thrya runs into one of her fellow pack mates and emotions start to stir.

The grey she wolf walked along keeping watch for any prey as she headed towards the Draugar boarder. Her head still felt conflicted about the whole mess the Vultures has stirred. But she would try and tell someone from Nahimana’s pack that their alpha was alive, as well as the rest of the message she was asked to tell them.

Thrya went to step into Draugar’s territory. She hesitated, her front paw hovering above the invisible barrier on the ground. The last time she had wondered into Draugar was pure accident, lost in thought. She was lucky not have been attacked, ending up so close near the pups. Now her pack had captured one of theirs. No, that would not be wise, she thought. Even though she could defend herself against one or two wolves. It was best not give them an excuse to attack.

She turned around and walked over to sit under the shade of a tree. Safe in neutral territory. She would wait to see if anyone would come close to the boarder. Thrya looked around. A smile crept on her face as her eyes spotted some big horn far away. Maybe if someone didn’t come in an hour or so she could lure them out.

Hathem lay deep in one of the many dens in the Draugar territory. The night before had been a long one. Meeting with a familiar female, arguing and getting lost. He mannaged to make it home around the hours of first day light. His body ached, and his heart as well. He had left the territory insearch of his alpha and came home empty handed.

He now lay in an uncomfortable position, snoring loudly. And looking content with his sleep after being awake for nearly 24 hours. He had only been able to chatch an hour or two of the uninterrupted sleep.

He knew before hand that there was always a posabilty of being rudely awakened by small paws all over his body. A few barks and tuggs on the ears. Living with children had its problems. He’d handle them easy, even in his cranky state. But if it had been an adult, or something else. They’d better watch out.

Two hours had gone by and no one from Draugar had showed up yet. Thrya paced back and forth along the invisible border. If no one was nearby it would be pointless killing prey to attract them. Her eyes scanned the rock formation, where beyond them the Draugar dens lay. She bit her lip, looking towards her territory and Draugar’s. She sighed deeply and stepped into Draugar territory. Heading towards the main den site.  

The plan was to find someone, tell them the message and get out as fast as possible. Simple. On top of the ridge, Thrya did her best to stay out of sight and up wind. She looked around for any signs of life. It was oddly quiet and there was a patch work of many caves. Everyone must be inside, she thought. She flicked her tail anxiously. Picking a cave full of wolves would not end well. She took a deep breath and headed towards the nearest one.
Thrya peaked her head into the closest den. A strong scent of wolf hit her nose. A male. She scanned the cave looking for the source of the scent. There! Towards the back, in the darkness she could see the outline of the rise and falls of a wolf’s chest as they lay sleeping. “Hello?” She whispered.

Hathem awoke slightly to the soft whisper of hello echoing through the den. The voice was recognizable. Although he figured it might have been one of the pups. In his tired and sluggish awakening he murmured slightly, "Come in."

He stretched his paws out, yawning softly and opening his eyes. He didn't feel like he was ready to start the day. But if anyone needed him, he would be there. He slowly sat himself up awaiting the sight of the wolf who called into the den. "What is the matter?
" He called out beginning to stand up.

The male wolf in the cave stirred awake, and had said come in. Odd Thrya thought. This pack must really have a lot of members where everyone is not familiar with anyone. If a stranger willingly walked into Vulture’s territory, they would be known straight away. She shrugged the thought off. Most likely this wolf was very tired.

Thrya hesitated for a moment. She turned her head around the cave, eyes scanning for any possibility of a trap. Satisfied, she stepped into the cave. Glad she wouldn’t be spotted by anyone in the pack straight away. She looked the male up and down and politely nodded in his direction. “Greetings. I have a message for your pack, from your Alpha.”

“What the.” He julted awake seeing the face of the stranger. His head slightly grazing the top of the den as he stood up quickly. “Ow!” He shook his head slightly and growled to the trespasser.

His growl stopped as his mind registered what she had said. “Nahimana..” his eyes soften a little hearings the stranger mention her. “Where is she! Is she ok! D-did she have the pups.” His mind bursted with questions for himself and for the pack. Many were worried for her heath.

He tried to focus more. He figured the stranger knew just little of her health and status. And it was foolish to give such a hope from a stranger. “You said you have a message. Please there is no time to waist. Walk with me and speak.” His anticipated something to the effect of help, or a location to find her. He walked out of the den site. The lift stung his eyes a bit. “Ugh.”

The she wolf took a hasty step back from the male’s sudden movements and the look of realization that she was a stranger lit his eyes. The male had gotten up so fast that he had hit his head. She bit her tongue to try and snuffle a laugh. Though she didn’t have to bite it for long as worry took over her humour as the male started growling towards her.  

Thrya relaxed a little bit as the male’s eyes softened at Nahimana’s name.  “Well she is alive. But when I saw her she didn’t look so good.” She said worriedly. Thrya tilted her head and nodded in the direction of the neutral grounds that she had travelled from. “She is out there somewhere in neutral territory in a cave.” She went to smile to answer the third question but abruptly stopped herself, remembering the sight of the three little lifeless bodies. “And yes she had the pups”. She said with a lower voice.

Thrya carefully followed the hasty male outside, careful not to step too close to him. Unlike him though, she was prepared for the bright daylight. She looked towards him, keeping her eyes out of the sunlight. “Well that pretty much was the message. She asked me to tell someone in the pack that she is alive. Though she asked me not to tell you exactly where she is. Oh and also that someone named Hathem was to act as beta until she gets back.” She sighed in relief, her job was done. Though her eyes stayed on the male, curious to see how he would take the message.


In the mists or his questions and inner thinking he heard Hathem. He glanced back at the strange wolf. He gave a slight glare. Was that a joke? He thought to himself. But how could it be, this wolf knew nothing of anyone in this pack. He sighed softly easing his gaze on her.

“I did not know she had that much faith in me.” He said calmly looking away from the wolf and back at the land. He shook his head. “I should get a search team ready to find her and the pups to bring them home.” He started mumbling plans to himself almost forgetting the messenger.

He remembered her for a second and turned back. “Thank you for the message, it has been reserved to the right wolf.” He bowed his head thankfully to the wolf. “If you need to stay and rest here for a few hours you are more than welcome, but please don’t stay past that. The pack is already in distress, we don’t need you accidentally being attacked.” He was truthful in his words. Only he knew the stranger was there and didn’t want her hurt.


Thrya just shrugged her shoulders at his comment, “That is what she said. Well congrats on the job promotion.”  At his reaction, Thrya made a mental note that this wolf’s name must be the Hathem that Nahimana had mentioned.

Her ears perked up at his mumblings about a search party. “I can’t tell you exactly where she is, but if you are quick enough. You can follow my scent trail.” Well it was true, she had promised not to say where the alpha was. But If Nahimana’s pack found her by tracking, then she still had keep her word while trying to help.

Thrya shook her head at his offer to rest within the Draugar boarder. “Thanks for the offer, but I have spent too much time here already.” Thrya flicked her tail nervously as she glanced around looking for signs of the other pack mates the male had mentioned. She looked up the path where she had come from. With job done she could go now. She turned to look back at the male, “Farewell and good luck Hathem.” And with that Thrya quickly sprinted passed the male, up the rocks. Heading out of Draugar territory back towards home.
Just follow my scent trail

One of the good things about 12 hour night shifts. Is that I get to watch Stephen Colbert in my 30mins lunch break at XD

So with my new job I have 12 hours a day (which starts tomorrow, O.O) Just been doing 6 hour training so far. 7 days a week then you have a couple of days off then have to switch to night shifts, same deal, 12 hours 7 days, couple of days off switch to day shifts.


At some point in my days off I also have to do at least 1 day at my retail job to stay on the books which they said could only be 3 hours. But the roster they sent out is more than that. X.X


But back to the heading of this said journal

I will be staying up late/ early to get ready for night shift and when I finish day shift to re-adjust to sleep patterns.


So in all these all nighters/ days

I will do some art (maybe live stream) I will attempt to set up some art on my next days off.

Watch Netflix (tv. Or movies)

Or Game. Hence why I asked if anyone plays on Steam or PS4. There is a chance I can game with you if I have the same games as you. I was going to do some game recording but I don’t think I will be able to do that, that sleep deprived or at night when everyone else is sleeping. (truth be told I don’t want them to hear me doing game recordings) They will think it is weird. Hence with my current YouTube game videos I don’t talk much yet. Not used to talking out loud.


Let me know if you want to be added on either. If you know I already have you, you need not apply : ) (I have you two or three already) : )

Don’t get too excited though. Most times I will probably just watch a Netflix series being too sleep deprived and physically drained.
