Blue

The days had passed slowly, and it began to itch between her shoulder blades. Living without meat was difficult and the way the wolves around her part to give her space was more akin to fear then respect. Everything here was different, and it appeared to also get to Durandel and the others. As she sometimes noticed Nova to be uncharacteristically silent, without sharp words or a cunning look in his eyes. And it was very easy to see how the 'Peace' here disturbed Durandel since he was such an expressive wolf.

As for how Blue had been faring... Blue had been bidding her time, remembering her times in the darkness of being forced to wait. It was difficult since she could no longer pretend to be BattleDemon, her mother. Yet, the desired effect had happened. Durandel and Nova were now her designated traveling companions. Well, not so much 'desired' with Nova as it just somehow happened. She didn't entirely understand what their situation was as she no longer has a pack and especially since being raised in the darkness, she knew nothing of what it meant to miss a home that could possibly be wiped out. That's right, she knew next to nothing of the harsh realities of this world. She had no one. She was alone. She had only herself to love and fight for... Right?

***

Durandel, Mydnyte and Fang entered the room along with the unfamiliar she-wolf. Blue huffed and watched them silently, ignoring the way the three brutes instantly began bickering. Her ears twitched, annoyed by their ceaseless chattering. They're like those rodents who chitter in the trees. She thought of the rodents with the fluffy curled tails, and how they sometimes throw acorns down on her when she gets too close to a certain tree.

"Looks like you might soon learn who the real enemy is. There are worse wolves out there than me, you know." Blue rolled her eyes and before she could retaliate with words, Fox spoke to her. "At first I thought you were someone else..., Hello my name is Fox." A growl rose its way up from her throat, no doubt the she-wolf had thought she was BattleDemon. It irked how this she-wolf could tell on sight that she wasn't BattleDemon, yet somehow the wolves that apparently knew BattleDemon the longest, Nova and Durandel, didn't know.

She has good instincts. It would be best to avoid her. Blue backed off all of sudden from the meeting, slowly edging for the door. Yet, apparently fate was beginning to show her good time. The next wolf who came in after Fox really didn't bother her and so she proceeded to walk out, passing by the stranger... When she passed him, her chest light on fire. Well, it didn't light on fire so much as shocked her so badly her fur suddenly crackled with electricity. Needless to say, Blue was shocked, literally by this brute's presence.

In seconds her hackles went up and she turned on Summanus with a frightful snarl. Unbeknownst to her, the chain with the pendent on her neck, was beginning to emanate with a sudden power surge. She was in a crouch, her blue eyes practically glaring daggers at the strange Brute.

Blossom

Blossom was awake, awake so early that it felt wrong. I... I... What was it? She lifted her head with ears fully pricked, a sudden silence descended on the surrounding area. Her fur began to fluff up, a sudden strangeness overtook her and she began to wonder, There's something wrong here... Her whiskers twitching, she got to her paws and walked away from her resting place. This place... feels like its dying... She saw it there. It was a flower, that wasn't just one flower.

As she got closer, the flower kept changing from one flower type to another. Daffodil. Sunflower. Lily. Orchid. Tulip. It was strange, yet somehow eye-catching. Once she got close enough, she touched it with her nose. And... Everything died.

"Ah!" Blossom jumped up and hit her head on the boulder above her. "Ow." She grimaced and rubbed her head with her front paws while resting on back legs, glaring at the boulder above. Letting out an uncharacteristic growl, she walked out of the small den-like cave. "Ahhh!" Smiling, she stretched out each of her limbs, including her one wing which she used to block the glaring sunlight to look out over the area. "Tiberius!"

She let out a shout and jumped back into the small cave and prodded Tiberius with her paws. "Wake up! It's morning! Er, maybe afternoon.... Who knew we would sleep that long!" She watched the sleeping form of her friend, and pounced on him, like a cat would a mouse. "WAKE UP!" She let out a howl that could deafen anyone nearby. It was even amazing that she was awake at this hour as usually it was Tiberius who awoke early, and her sleeping in.

Tiberius

Tiberius had woken up to the sounds of Blossom's earlier yelp, and so he didn't have any sleep to help number his friends assault to wake up. Slowly lifting his head, the right side of his face matted by drool and gravity, he groggily looked over to Blossom, his eyes trying to adjust to the daylight. His head hurt, he wondered if it was because he was sick or because he had slept on stone all night. What time was it? Without saying much more than a "get off", Tiberius limped outside and looked up at the sky. Wowzers, the sun was really high. Was it already past noon, or just a little before? He couldn't remember his directions for some reason. Either way he had slept in way later than usual, he hated wasting all those morning hours!

With a yawn, Tiberius did what he usually did rain or shine and started thinking aloud. "Meh, how'd we sleep in so late? The sun shoulda woke us up. Now I don't have any time to fish for breakfast. Oh wait, I guess I don't have any time to eat breakfast either. Maybe we can just eat a big brunch? Man, my head hurts, how did you sleep?" Tiberius chattered, feeling more awake now that he warmed up his jaw.

Blue

"BattleDemon?" That name made her freeze for a second. Another one. She ground her teeth together, no words coming to her at that moment other then the aching inside her chest. Of course, that's when the meeting room flew into disarray as two strangers appeared. As if she wasn't already stressed enough, and to add this to it? Unbelievable.

Blue growled and other then the slight tremble on her legs, was able to stay stock still. What's going on? This was all utterly wacko, in her opinion. What was the point of having this so-called secret meeting if strange wolves just showed up unannounced? She was trying hard not to burst into laughter at the sudden strangeness of it all when those shadow wolves all just clumped together into a corner of the room, and of course, Durandel just started shouting at the fire wolf at the door entrance. Wacko. completely Wacko.

It all happened in mere minutes, and when it all seemed to have calmed for awhile, she remembered what had happened. That strange brute had thought she was her mother, and... Yes, I believe I was escaping from this madness. Blue started for the door again only to be stopped by Summanus, yet again. This made her skitter backwards as it seemed the closer Summanus was her to, the more the pendent reacted by sparking up.

"So it's true...you are BattleDemon after all?"
"Well, actually, that's Blue."
"Perhaps but, why would a random She-Wolf have my Birth Pendant?" Summanus brought up.


Blue blinked and becoming confused brought a paw to her forehead. As this went on, she felt an onset of a headache. That's when she realized that they were all getting closer to her to see the pendant. This agitated her further, and she nearly snapped at them about her personal space when they seemed to have back off.

Letting out a sigh, she looked down at her paws to see that she was trembling all over again. Great. Just great. She gave herself time to steady herself before standing back up, "I believe this does not concern me; if you need me.." The way she spoke the ending, suggested that she believed that they did not need her, and without giving them a change to reply, she stalked out of the room. She appeared to be the darkest of them all in that moment.

Once outside, Blue felt the pendent's power to be fading. It wasn't the only thing that faded, as did the pain in her chest. I guess I'll just have to stay away from that... two-tailed one. She hadn't even caught the stranger's name, yet he knew her's. How annoying. Ah well, can't bother with a rude wolf like that. And with that, she began to walk toward an area of Springwood that appeared to more crowded with Avens, perhaps, what was called a market?

Her dark pelt stood out among the mostly green wolves, all of whom gave her a wide berth. She ignored them, and just focused on looking over the things in the stalls, some of which were very interesting. This... Merchant was selling powders, some were for sleeping problems, other could help with healing wounds, and others for she-wolves... She quickly walked away from that stall when the seller thought she were there for she-wolf troubles. Hmm, everything here... could it be? After looking over some stalls, she noticed a common theme. Was it mating season? Why are there focusing on love-dovey stuff? Wasn't it almost winter?

Wait, what season is it? She was confused about the customs of this world, and it appeared to show since somehow all the seller's seemed to know this, as they all bothered her. They questioned her about this or that problem and offered their own thing that could help her, all for a certain price that was. Blue ignored them mostly, and continued her walk through the market.

Vesta

Noting the tension in the room and the big mistake she had made, Vesta nodded to the Ausi as he made his way out. She looked back at the group around the table, "To answer everyone's questions, first, what is the meaning of this? Simple, a Tenneth goes were ever a Tenneth wants to go. Second, am I friend or foe...? Well that all depends on you. If you are asking whether or not I am after any of you... no. Though I am curious as to why a cousin would be in a private meeting like this way out here? Canicus, cousin, you should know, if I was your enemy I would not have leaped in here to start my attack, though I am not surprised that a Aven would ask such a question. What would you know about war? A pair of shadow wolves who do their best fighting in hit and run would know nothing about a straight up fight, especially if one Tenneth makes you so scared. But now you mister Borak, you seem to have a good sense of things, though once again I am not surprised. As for my business here, that is a long story, but simply put I am hunting the most dangerous prey to ever live and I was following a pest of shadow pup. But if this meeting has nothing to do with going after or avoiding Tenneth, I am sorry for the intrusion. Oh before I go, know that nothing stays private for ever and some one please.... do some thing about the shadow pup, before some thing happens to it." With that Vesta respectfully nods, "Again I am sorry for the interruption." As she turned to leave she looked back at Fang and blow a small flame at him. It wasn't strong enough to reach him or set anything on fire, just a playful notion. Vesta walked out of the room with her head held high and proud as is typical of a Tenneth.

Once outside she turned her attention to the Ausi, "Excuse me sir. I know many have no love for my kind but it seemed a little more personal for your friend back there. Also I've never seen a group like that, wolves from so many packs. What's going on? Is everything alright?" It was time to try and find out as much information as she could about what ever she could.
Amarok

Waiting for things to calm down and for Vesta to leave, Amarok slowly emerged from the shadows. Still in a very submissive poster. "I'm... I'm... not a pup. And. And I'm sorry. I didn't mean... I'll... I'll... go now." She started to turn toward the exit but stopped when her eyes fell once again on the two Kamaria males. To which she slowly approached. "Your... you.. really are Kamaria? Your really male Kamaria...? And your not going to kill me?" Keeping her head low, she looked up at the two with a mix of pain, sadness and confusion. Amarok had always been told how dangerous the males of her pack were and to avoid them at all cost. It was also a pair of male Kamaia that killed he mother about a week ago. Thinking that she may yet be killed by the two, she laid down and closed her eyes. In a very soft whisper, "I am sorry mom. I guess I will be seeing you sooner then you wanted."

Blue

Honestly, Blue was beginning to feel... What is this feeling? It was a strange feeling, a feeling she had always felt but, it had never bothered her until...

Until she found herself immersed in such an environment. Despite her intrusion, the Aven wolves around her kept up with their lives. They were having a festival, and from what she could gather, it was a festival that was about pair bonds. The love that brought mates together. It was strange. Truly strange as this event was clearing her sight. It was like being blind and then suddenly having someone throw cold water on you and then shout at you to open your eyes to see. Everything was blinding.

It was a sudden truth, a brutal one to her young heart. She had always been alone. And she would probably always would be. But it makes sense. I am a half-breed afterall. My mother's pack is all but gone, and my father's... A sick feeling began to well up in her chest. It doesn't matter. I'm only a puppet, and a puppet does not have feelings. She stopped when a sudden music began to fill her ears. Right before her eyes, Aven wolves were dancing in pairs. It was somewhat hypnotizing to see such wolves in two move together, but not touch, to the sound of the harp.

She recited to herself, I am a puppet; a puppet does not feel. Slowly, she remembered what plans were set before herself. That's right, I am a puppet, a hated spy. So these feelings that have no where to go, have to disappear into nothing. Blue, gripped in a melancholy atmosphere, stayed where she was. A most hateful spy.

Blue

Pulled, rather abruptly from her dark thoughts, Blue turned to see Nova's gesturing. She blinked and just like that, all her recent thoughts were swept away, leaving her somewhat confused as to why she was in a melancholic mood. She watched the Aven wolves dancing before her and shook out fur just before she began her walk back to the inn. What was I thinking just now.

Blue had been too preoccupied with her situation of being unwanted. Well, Durandel and his group did seem to want her around, but it was probably only out of the fact that she knew the last known location of her mother. BattleDemon. Vital information they thought would be helpful against the coming darkness. Yet, Blue could not tell them this secret since she still did not trust Durandel and Nova fully. Especially the Kamarians.

It was only a minute or so when she arrived at the inn and whereupon she growled in disapproval at the sight of all the wolves gathered together. It was annoying how little she knew about the type of wolves in this world. In a way, she thought Nova was right about about her cluelessness.

In fact, at the very thought of Nova she remembered how he thought she had rushed into that fight, the one where they met. A small feeling of guilt nipped at her. She hadn't rushed into the fight at all. The fight had come to her and her young self had never even known how to fight. She had no powers, nothing but the ability to run from her enemies which as she found out the hard way, she was an excellent runner. She was nothing like her mother.

Nothing like her at all. Blue calmed herself. Thinking of such matters now would not help her. Nonchalantly, acting like this meeting was unimportant she began to groom herself.

Tiberius

Trying to make the best out of his dwindling day, Tiberius idled away his time trying to make a snare trap. He knew that Blossom didn't like it when he trapped prey, but it wasn't like she had to watch when he ate it! Last time she practically guilt tripped him for a week for eating a rabbit, or "cute little bunny wunny" as she liked to call it. Well, she could survive off eating berries and nuts, but he needed something meaty once in a while. Fish would be preferable, but there wasn't any in this marsh they were in. Besides, going in the water made his fur smell, and that was something he could live without.

Strolling around their camp in a wider and wider radius, Tiberius tried to find the perfect branch for his trigger. It was always a tricky find. The branch had to be spry enough to bend without breaking, and yet strong enough to return to its original shape quickly once the trap went off. Finding what had to be the perfect limb, he triumphantly picked up a young blown over sapling in his mouth. Suddenly, his ears twitched. Something was near. Clanging and growls. Wolves who were yelling. A battle? Here? The whole reason they were in this marsh is because they thought no one else would want to be here! He had to tell Blossom.

Running through the undergrowth, Tiberius watched as the branch he was carrying connected with trees on either side of him at the same time, and he felt himself fly backwards. Stupid branch. Should have known that gap was too small to carry his prize through. A little dazed, Tiberius didn't think things quite through before he yelled to Blossom "Feathers! We gotta go! An army is comin'!" Realizing his error and hoping the battling wolves were to distracted to hear him, he ran back to camp to find his friend.

Blue

Blue had been a bystander in all of the current bickering. She just watched and waited, only having a thought about everything when Durandel got peeved about the other fire wolf and how she could be a spy. It was irony of some sort perhaps. Durandel refused to trust the strange she-wolf and yet, he probably already trusted her, Blue, an actual spy. It didn't cause her discomfort really... if anything it just made her confused. Every time she thought of.... it just got away from her like a mist inside her own head. What was she just thinking?

Blue was busy grooming again when Nova spoke again. She stopped what she was doing and noticed that the short brief was over and they seemed to be missing wolves. She hadn't listened at all to Fang.

Oh well, I can just ask Nova about what they were talking about later. Blue got up to follow Nova, only showing minimal interest when she spoke of her "flirting" with the merchants. If she were to be totally honest, she would tell Nova that she didn't know what that meant.... but being somewhat proud, she didn't ask.

However, when that brute, Summanus got up to go fetch Durandel... Electricity passed through her fur, make her pelt itch. Giving him a wary glance, Blue noticed that she was getting a certain feeling about this. It felt like she was running from something, all the while leaving a trail of firepowder in her wake... it was a foreboding feeling.

Trying to shake off such a feeling, Blue took Nova's lead, already walking out toward the market.

Blossom

Blossom had giggled at the sight of Tiberius's bed fur and instead of replying to his words about his head hurting and other stuff, she just soaked it in. It was, after all, better to listen to Tiberius then set him up and put more words in his mouth. Talking wasn't a bad quality to have in a friend, Blossom guessed, but sometimes it did get a bit boring. It's just the usual morning Tiberius.

It was just a slightly late morning for her now, and it didn't bother her like it did Tiberius. In fact, she was actually somewhat happy that she was able to be one waking him up rather than him waking her up. So, in her usual dumb-happy way, she walked out of the cave-den-thing and tried to ignore Tiberius since he had a hungry look on his face. He's probably gonna try and trap some poor innocent bunny again. It was a sad thought that made her give him a wide berth since out of their entire lives, it always seemed to her that Tiberius was the one who had the hardest time with everything.

Blossom, of course felt the pain of being discarded by her parents but she never really felt the need to go back to her roots like Tiberius did. In fact, it was his searching for his pack that led the two of them this far. He also needed to eat meat, which was nearly impossible for two youngsters like them to catch. Life was hard, maybe more so for him then her.... Or wait, wasn't it.... She could no longer think since she couldn't tell whose life was hardest up until this point. It was confusing also.

And so, it was when she was eating the bulbs of some flowers when she heard Tiberius shout out. "Feathers! We gotta go! An army is comin'!" Her first thought was: I wish he would stop calling me that, and her brain finally processed what he said. Panic struck her. What was she supposed to do?! Run, of course!!!!! But Tiberius!!!!

She looked back to where she last saw her bumbling companion. I want to run, but.... but I can't leave him either!!!! Thankfully, she was saved from having to choose between saving herself and saving her friend when she saw Tiberius come running back to camp. "Thank the gods your back! Lets go already!" She turned to start running only to have her wing hit the side of a boulder, spinning her around to fall and hit another boulder. Stupid wing!

Blue

Ask and it shall appear. "Wow, what a morning. First Durandel threatens to leave, then our not so secret meeting gets trampled on by a couple of random shewolfs, and now no one seems to want to cooperate. What do you think about Fang's plot, think it'll work? Gotta be better than what I've come up with so far, though it was pretty funny seeing you enslaved to Ash for an hour." A darker cloud appeared across Blue's face at the mention of Ash. I forgot all about that she-wolf... Ugh... However... She looked at Nova, narrowing her eyes, thinking back to when she had unceremoniously attacked Ash. She, herself hadn't really understood what Ash was talking about, only felt that if she spoke whatever it was, then everything would be uncomfortable.

So, she snapped her teeth before thinking back to what Nova just said. Oh great... I swear I need to stop spacing out. "Hmm, oh yes... Fang's plot...." She paused, staring at the line of the stall ahead of them. "What was that again?" That is of course, when the other news hit her. "Wait! Durandel was threatening to leave?" Shock lined the sound of her voice.

Everything seemed to be taking a second before it really hit her, especially since she felt that she had no reason to be here. But wait... She did have a reason, right? Yes, that reason. The reason also needed all of them. All of who? Just like that, her dark thoughts were swept away again by that mist inside her head. Confused about everything, yet again, Blue thought about Durandel. She hardly knew him, and logic said she shouldn't care of he left, and it was true since she had just met that guy like 2 weeks ago. The same went for Nova and the rest of them. Then why did she need to stay? Why did she care? She shouldn't care. She can't. A puppet can't care. She was alone anyways.

A puppet can't care, but it can do it's job. Blue's eyes glittered suddenly with a new intent.

Aurae
Aurae, per her usual rose with the sun. She found peaceful and beautiful to fly that early, life just waking up and the colors of the sun rise painting her and everything around her in color. This was the sort of thing she never would have experience back home. Between a favorable wind and some help from her gift she was able to keep her self aloft for a good portion of the morning. That's when a nosie from below caught her attention. "Is that some one in trouble? Or just some one having fun. Well one way to find out." She said to herself as she planed out her dive. Having found an opening in the canopy Aurae angled herself for it and using her wings to stay on target dove for it. About a foot away from the tree tops she folded up her wings so not to hit anything. Once clear of the canopy unfurled her wings and pulled out of her dive. Pulling her legs close to her body, like a plane retracting its landing gears, so not to get her feet muddy or caught on anything she search for the source of the noise. As she weaved, dove, and rolled through the tree she spotted two wolves, one a silverfish color... and with a dorsal fin? The other one is stranger still, a one winged brown and green wolf. Emphasis on one wing, not two but one single wing on the body of what could almost be mistaken for a fox?

Aurae decided to take a closer look. So as she flies closer to them she rolls inverted over them. Completing her roll she banks hard to the right with her wings fully extended and with a soft flap of her wings to help slow her down. She glids to a walking landing a few feet in front of the two wolves. Holding her head up high, "Hi. Your funny looking. Whatcha you doing?" She said playfully.

Tiberius

Finally resolving to leave his hard sought branch on the ground, Tiberius briskly trotted up to where Blossom had stumbled. "Silly wolf, lets go!" Tiberius said quickly as he helped to pull her up by her scruff, ignoring the fact that he had been just as clumsy as he not a moment before. As he paused to help her however, the throbbing adrenaline in his ears calmed down enough to realize that the hasty pursuit he was imagining in his head hadn't materialized. He had sworn he heard shouting and clanging and fighting, but either it stopped or it was moving further away. Perhaps they would have enough time to grab what little they owned between them before they moved on. It would certainly be better than beginning anew like the often had to do.

Regardless, his wits were still rather short, and so when Aurae fell from the sky the your Arylne was more than a little spooked. Nerves or not, Tiberius did what he did best, and talked back to her. Not that he thought much about what he was saying, and as such he spoke in a lot of non sequiturs. "Whatchya mean? She can fly the same as you. I gotta fin cause I was born with it, not cause I was trying to be funny. What do you know? Please don't bring the war to us, we didn't mean to get so close to your battle. We are peaceful wolfs. See? She doesn't even kill prey. I do. But, only a little bit. I'll stop if you want us to. Is that what this is about, did we take your prey?" Tiberius rambled, backing away a few steps from this new Avira.

Blue

"Where've you been? He practically roasted Mydnyte this morning." Blue looked at Nova in actual amazement, momentarily forgetting her dark thoughts. She never really thought, Durandel would be one to lose it just because of a little stress. She thought back on how he had acted throughout their little adventure to get here. Maybe, maybe not. He had been more of a somewhat... Better wolf to be around than Nova... Right?

"You're usually a lot more...involved. What's up with you today, dearest Dey?" Brought of her thoughts again, she looked at Nova and with her ears laid back, rolled her eyes. For sure, Durandel was more easy going than Nova.

Letting out a heavy sigh, she ignored his sarcastic-ness and brushed off her amazement and instinct to respond back with acidic words. "Please don't call me that; My name is Blue." There was a hollowness to her words that made her sound... empty. It was only or a moment, to which she quickly covered up with a shaking of her coat. "Ah, this is taking forever. I think your silver tongue is enough for just this. I'm gonna go find Durandel, to make sure the fire-head hasn't gone off and done something stupid." That last bit, she mumbled and quickly turned away to bolt off in the direction she had last saw the Canicus.

She needed to make sure Durandel hadn't gone off, since the plan also required his presence. That last she saw of him, Summanus had been going after him, but since she needed to do this, she wasn't going to back off just at the probability of running into Summanus and not Durandel. "Khan! Kha-" Already yelling out her nickname for him, she quickly cut herself off at the second time she yelled it out. I can't allow myself this... I need to stay at a distance.

Blue switched gears and shouted out, "Durandel!" She ignored the looks of the Aven wolves around her, only stop to glare at those who stopped and watched her angrily. They quickly backed off. "Durandel!" Silently, she quickly found his scent trail and began to follow it, stopping every once in awhile to shout out his name.

Please don't bring the war to us, we didn't mean to get so close to your battle. We are peaceful wolfs. See? She doesn't even kill prey. I do. But, only a little bit. I'll stop if you want us to. Is that what this is about, did we take your prey?"

Blossom gaped at the she-wolf in front of her, and stopped only to yelp at Tiberius for lying and saying she could fly. "Shut up Tiberius, I can't fly! And I wouldn't want to anyway!" She bared her teeth at the stranger and tucked her wing in tighter, suddenly conscious of it presence. Her hide was bristling with petty anger at the stranger, especially since she knew that she was most likely the one, she called 'funny looking.' Tiberius's deformities weren't that bad since it also marked him as a water wolf, whereas her's was something even more unwanted.

Blossom resented the two-winged wolf even more, since she appeared to not consider them dangerous enough to be wary of.

Blue

Blue had heard Durandel's response and had quickened her pace to meet the two. "I have to say, I'm surprised. I think that's the first time I've ever heard you call me by name. I thought you were someone else there for a minute." Blue smiled faintly and had thought to say something about how Durandel needed to stay calm and not melt anyone down but then... He appeared to have something to say. Just being this close to him made her hackles go up. The electricity created by the pendant was palpable. So was the tension that Blue felt in the atmosphere. It was such a sudden change from the friendly one Durandel had had going.

Summanus then cleared his throat, "Excuse me. I don't mean to seem rude but that Pendant around your neck doesn't belong to you. If you'd please, I would like you to return it to me now." Blue's fur itched with electricity, causing a sudden urge to flee far from this brute. What was it that made her so scared of this wolf? And until that moment, Blue hadn't even known she was afraid of Summanus. It shocked her, literally, yet again.

She growled, ears flat against her skull. Maybe today just wasn't her day. She locked her blue eyes with Summanus seemingly empty ones and spoke to Durandel without looking away, "You can keep going Khan, I think this should be a private conversation." Blue knew he would go and not listen, or at least she thought so due to his honorable actions that took place in the past.

Blue walked straight up to Summanus, so that their faces were a foot apart. With steel in her eyes, she said, "No."

This close to him, the pendant around her neck was practically crackling with energy. It made her bristle in uneasiness at the tension, the sudden adrenaline making her far bolder then she would have been had she not been afraid. To make matters worse, she couldn't help but voice more words. "I'm wonder how it feels. To find your pendant, but not be able to take it back."

With her claws digging into the ground, a playful light reached her eyes, hiding the shock at what she was saying. How was she even speaking such words when she was afraid? Blue smiled slightly at that, feeling that she was insane, she lowered her head a tad bit to express her playfulness.

If Summanus moved even a bit, Blue would bolt, and having already proved to the others that was the quickest runner out of them all, she wouldn't mind proving it to Summanus either. And from the sudden spike of energy in the pendant, if he used his abilities to stop her, there was no telling what energy his pendant would give out if he directed it at her. It would most likely kill her, and she was sure he knew that.

And since he couldn't outrun her and he didn't want to kill her, he couldn't really do anything about it, now could he? Well he could try catching her if he wanted, she really really didn't mind showing him that he was slower compared to her and it showed on her face.

Blue

"I don't know what game you're trying to play with me but challenge me all you like, it doesn't matter." Blue felt something echo inside her chest, keeping her from moving to challenge Summanus again. "I will take back my property regardless if you give it to me willingly or otherwise." She gritted her teeth, and pawed at her ears. That was... She found no words to describe what had transpired, if that 'what' was something she knew or even understood. She had been afraid, but she said things and challenged him, but she couldn't understand what had been going through her head... It was confusing for her to think about, and if anything, it just went along with whatever that Brute had following him. Strange stuff indeed.

Feeling strange now, Blue placed a paw on the pendent hanging around her neck, and whined softly. I feel as if I'm in pain now. A feeling of having lost something, she turned about and looked in the direction Summanus had gone, then back in the opposite direction. Her chest and bones hurt then, compelling her to turn and run away into the forest, away from this so-called quest, away from what she knew would somehow end her freedom.

It was an instinctual thing perhaps that made her walk toward the forest, she knew it deep inside her chest that if she followed Durandel and the others, she knew what was in store. And that was what made her walk even faster away, she was after all a wolf, a beast that had been hardwired to live and save herself above all things. I'am a living being, so self-preservation shouldn't be so... She begun to trot into the forest, when inside her head... That dark mist took ahold her of, made her stop and gasp painfully. STOP.

Hatred. Pain. Agony. Images played through her head, twisting her on the inside, filling her with a poisonous hatred.... I just have to... keep going... She placed one paw forward, then the other, and another.

***


Back at the meeting place, after Summanus had entered the room, a few minutes more, Blue walked into the room. A heavy aura followed her, making it so that anyone near her would feel intimidated. And yet, she tilted her head and smiled, her eyes glittering with a newfound darkness. "I'm sorry for being late. Has Nova arrived yet?" At that moment, a dark shadow slid forward to trip Summanus.

Blue

Blue was bored. Maybe she should have been thinking more about the journey before the group, or even how Summanus knew she was off, but being the young one she was... She really didn't keep these important things in mind at the moment, since... Well, there was nothing to do. Her somewhat playful and inquisitive nature also demanded that their be some sort of stimulation to keep her from going crazy. It was something that has gotten her in trouble before, like the porcupine thing and... going along with Nova's plan.

I'm sooo bored.... Not even this devastation is helping! She walked through the burned body of the forest with the others, dark shadows of thought moving back in the recesses of her mind, making her paws antsy. This place... was a bit like that was other one... That dark place...

With a start, Blue snapped back into reality when the sun shone brightly. Irritated by something she could not describe, she noticed how all the others were conversing with one another... That is when she realized she was walking in front of Nova, and an idea came to her. She stopped, feigning a paw sprain... waiting for Nova to.... pass.

With a jump she launched herself at him, letting out a playful snarl. Completely crushing him, she quickly remembered once seeing a frog jump from rock to rock, and with that in mind, she want after her next victim. Who just happened to Durandel, and then Fang Hunter and back to Nova again... she stopped before Summanus, and turned to continue just before she let out a snort and called out to Mydnyte, who had happened to in front of the pack and so did not see her topple the rest of them, "Mydnyte, I think we have some wolves lagging!" She continued trotting forward, letting a low huff of laughter that made her seem almost delighted at what she did.

Blue

Blue was absolutely filled from claws to ear-tips with a vicious delight that bordered between childish fun and that of a maniac. She flicked her tail in a playful manor and responded to Durandel's questions with a small huff of laughter and a look that, perhaps, no wolf in their party could understand... except maybe Summanus. Blue suddenly saw that, in the corner of her eye, Nova was going to snap at her again. With a smug look, she turned her gaze to him and waited for whatever harsh words he would throw at her.

To her surprise, Nova appeared to have stopped himself. Blue was disappointed and thought perhaps that it was Fang's good-natured amiability that had effected him thus. She groused silently for a moment, and then began devising another way to relieve her puppy antics when Nova spoke, [b]"Or what about you, Blue? You seem happy to share the love, what cool places have you been?"[b]

The question made the light leave her eyes. She had no 'cool' places to speak off... None except the darkness of that cave, as well as other painful places that held memories she did not want to speak or even think of. Nova's jabbing question had hit a painful part of what made Blue, Blue and it showed in the way she turned away and let out an angry retort that she knew would shut Nova's muzzle, at least for awhile. "The Sharikere Mountains."

The memory of the snow filled days made her look up and remember other painful things such as blood on ice. "You guys are boring." Her voice was cutting, almost plaintive as if she were trying to hide the scars left on her spirit from such an adventure and suddenly bolted forward to walk ahead with Mydnyte.

Blossom

Blossom mumbled in her sleep, words unbeknownst to the waking world. She whined and growled enough that it earned her smack to the head which promptly woke her up. "Ow! Tiber-"

She stopped her shout mid-sentence once she looked at the wolf who hit her. It was a strange old she-wolf. In bad shape. Blossom was speechless. She didn't know where she was, and who this wolf, how did she even get here? "Um..."

The she-wolf snapped her jaws and growled, "Oh shut up, you've been whining in your sleep for the past hour." The words were coated in cold and the opposite of what Blossom imagined an old granny wolf would sound like. It broke her silence and shock and brought forth the fear that had been slowly rising inside her. She flexed her wing into her side and whined, earning herself a sharp gaze from the old she-wolf. Blossom flinched.

"Oh, don't worry about her. She's too weak to do anything. We all are. That's why we're here anyways." A new voice interrupted the glare coming from the irritated old crone. Blossom turned to see a dirty and ragged she-wolf lying on her side. "W-what do you mean?" Blossom asked.

The younger, friendlier stranger let out a chuckle that died off and turned into a fit of terrible coughing. "We are in what is supposed to be a medical Bay. Aren't you hurt? With the only one wing and all? I mean that is why the guards brought you down here, I heard them talking about it."

Blossom finally realized she wasn't alone with just the two others in this dark and dreary cave.... there were other wolves here as well, and it was strange that she didn't notice their presence, as it appeared... they were all silent. As if death had come forth to physically strangle the life out of them in the slowest way ever. It made Blossom sick to see the hopelessness in all of them. It was quite awhile before she spoke again, "I'm not hurt... I was just born with the one wing."

"Oh, great." The irritated older wolf growled, "I'll die next to a reject." Blossom whined again in fear. "Oh, quit complaining, Tria. We should be happy to speak with someone that hasn't..." The friendly one stopped herself from speaking any further then that. The meaner one called Tria growled yet again. "Lily, your idea of hope has so far kept you in better spirits unlike the rest of us, and I see it has finally brought you here. Just heal up and go back to the mines or just die from your wounds!"

Blossom'sick ear perked up at that. Wounded? The friendly stranger called Lily was hurt? Blossom got up, shaking the dust that had caked to her fur and feathers and walked over to the stranger.

Once she got closers, she gasped at the sight of the wounds on Lily's side. It was gruesome and she was sure that the white bits were bone. "What happened to you?!"

Lily had her eyes closed, and was just able to smile. "I got tired, fell and I wouldn't get back up. The guards tried to 'help' me." Her words were so soft, so light, along with her breathing. It scared Blossom to the bone.

"W-wh-what... where... w-why?" Blossom was scared now, so scared. "Tiberius! I... where is he? My friend! I think he can help! Tiberius!" It was now that Blossom's idea of the world was shattered yet again, and in a way that made her block out the logical and natural way things would go for the mortally wounded stranger. Deep down she knew, even if Tiberius were here, he couldn't save the life of this she-wolf. Yet, she couldn't stop crying for her friend as she nudged the almost dead stranger, who even though was dying, managed to smile, "I'm glad, someone will know how this life ended. Thank you, for crying for me young one."

It was then that Blossom realized, she really was crying, shedding actual tears for this stranger. It made her chest hurt even more as it made her think about her earliest memories of her parents. She began to cry harder, and somewhere in between when she started to cry and hours later, what had been Lily, a friendly stranger to Blossom was gone and in the end, it was just Blossom snuggled into a lifeless body surrounded by others who wold most likely die from wounds they somehow received.

Blue

Alone in her head, brimming with silent suffering that moved through with that of molten lava, slow but surely. It kept Blue from noticing the sudden darkening of her shadow and it was the seconds before she was punched on by some unseen shadow, that Blue's physical Form and that of her shadow, darkened and seemed to become one entire enitity. Then she was lying in the dirt....

Normally, she would be annoyed that someone had the got the jump on her, but this time, she was distracted by a sound... a barely audible sound, like a heart beating slowly... and slowly.... so slowly.... It made her scared, and it made her jump up to wheel around, ears at attention.

Without questioning if she was going insane, she asked the others, thinking they must be hearing it too. "Do you hear that? Its-"

Startled, Blue perked up and feeling a sudden rise in energy, she gasped... and the pendant on her neck came alive with a snap of electricity letting out a loud Fzzzt! just as sparks came flying off the chain. Blue yelped just as her shadow illuminated a faint blue color and exploded, tearing itself from its moment of unity with Blue's physical Form. As it flew under the paws of the other wolves to vanish into a Crack of the earth where smoke was still rising, the pendant Blue was wearing let out an electric pulse. The pulse came out as a wave of blue light that flew through the others and the surrounding nothingness, much Akin to an EMP burst.

Surprisingly, it came back to its source and with a Crack of what sounded like thunder, knocked Blue out before she could react to the entire insanity of what just happened. Her fur around the chain and pendant was singed, and the smell of burnt fur filled the area.

Blue moaned in pain, lying on the ground in broad daylight with no shadow.

Blue

Blue didn't hear the others clearly, and her eye sight was blurry so she squinted her eyes, and moaned. Her blood felt think and heavy as it coursed through her veins, and in general, her whole body just felt heavy. What's going on? Where am I? She blinked slowly, just in time to feel a loud buzzy noise over her head and paws touching her.

And unknown to Blue, the chain and pendant around her neck cracked with energy and shocked her once again the instant Summanus came into contact with the chain. The energy created ended up zapping Blue... This time however it made her feel energetic than exhausted.... and it also created anew odd pinching feeling inside her chest. Like-

Fear filled her, and something inside told her these paws were trying to take something important from her, a very important thing. It made her stand up, and quickly stagger away from the direction of the paws were coming from before they touched the important thing. She turned to see... Summanus.

She stared at him, in shock at what at happened. She wondered if he felt it... It was such a... It, this thing, this bit of info and power she had found... It was almost a miracle, but at its heart, Blue felt it was a curse. And so, moment of silence over, her stare turned into a glare which was followed by a slap to Summanus. "Don't touch. Ever. Again." Her hackles were up, but from fear, not anger.

Perhaps, Blue may have just taken power from Summanus's pendant, perhaps not. For her to find out and confirm this idea, she would need to ask him... but of course, she wouldn't. The brute irritated and made her uncomfortable. Unlike before, she didn't indulge her foolhardy side and challenge him, no, this time, she walked quickly away to sit on the other side of Khan.

Acting like nothing had happened, Blue ignored the looks coming from her traveling companions, and began to groom her fur back into place. She acted like nothing had happen, but inside, she felt something change, like the earth had moved her insides.

Blue

"You don't know the forces you're playing with here." Blue bared her teeth in irritation and shot back a reply, "I know exactly what I'm messing with. A spineless Borak that has nothing but dead fish eyes most of the time!" She went back to hiding behind Durandel, her nerves nearly shot.

"What the hell was that all about?" Mydnyte questioned Blue. Blue's already fried nerves were being tested by Mydnyte's demanding question. It was an obvious question to ask, but probably not in such a manner, and it was also she herself was asking. What had happened?

It was a mystery that had beven created by the black shadow that had escaped her head earlier... it was strange. "Hey, are you alright? What's wrong with you two? You both act defensively around each other as if waiting for the other one to finally snap." Durandel probed. Blue was surprised Durandel had noticed, then again he had been there each time the two had conversed. Blue looked at him perplexed that her fellow wolf was probably right. "I... he is irritating!" Was all she could come up with at the moment, other then the fact that Summanus was a threat to the objective.

Truly flummoxed by Durandel's question, she continued to think about before remembering she had to answer Mydnyte and so...

She tried to come up with a lie, to hide the secret but... she let out a groan that turned into a growl. And speaking loud enough for Mydnyte, she glared at the ground to keep Durandel from seeing the fishy-ness in her eyes. "I don't know what happened, but whatever it was it happened because of his pendant. Why don't you ask him." Now she was being unfair, but she had ano objective to accomplish, and the others could not know she was a spy.... which she was sure, the Borak was close to learning.
