After Crystal had mentioned that she was here because a part of her was still buried here, she brought up that she had also come here to see Avius personally. He was of course a bit surprised by this since they had never spoken much before this very moment. However, when she explained that she was here to talk to him because she felt it was probably something her mother would have wanted since Dani had tried to speak with him when she was still warm and breathing. Avius still held onto his old memories of Dani, few as they were, and tried to hide his remorse for such a heavy loss. Sometimes it was easy to ignore all those painful feelings bubbling inside him, but most of the time he couldn't resist to turn insane because of them. They screamed inside him and they cut him in both his heart and his soul, trying everything to get out. All of this came back to him in a single second before his attention rushed over to the girl before him once again.
The last reason for one of the reasons she had spoken of was that she thought he should do a better job because she still cared for the Wolfpack, even though she might hate its current Alpha. While Avius sat there and listened to what she had to say, he couldn't do much more than to agree with her; Sure, Sean might be his best friend and the Alpha over this clan, but his recent actions have pushed the clan against the White Shadows, which is something Dani would never have done. It all felt so wrong. Avius still had no idea why everyone had turned so easily upon Allison and Crystal and started throwing dirt at two dead people they had once adored and respected with all of their hearts all so sudden. He had only asked once and he had never received an answer that made sense to him. However, he had still witnessed what Evin did to the leaders cabin and that was something he would not forgive and forget in a very long time.
In the end Avius chose to ignore Crystals statement about the kid who had left the camp earlier. He didn't want anything to do with that boy anymore either way. She ended her long speech by asking, in a very friendly voice, how he had been. Avius took some time to melt all of this and eventually chose to sit down in the green grass. It was soft and a bit wet, but nice nevertheless. There was so many things he wanted to ask her and tell her, but he didn't want to cause any conflicts now that he had her attention and he most certainly did not want to waste that "level of respect" she seemed to have for him. Unless it was necessary of course.
"I don't know. Things could of course been better." He chuckled shortly before continuing, "I just don't know. I'm not sure if I care anymore either. I'm so confused by everything that has happened around me and yet, It's like I see the everything clearer than before." Avius didn't know how to describe his feelings on how he felt and how things had been going for him and others around him. Everything seemed to be falling apart at the same time as everything almost seemed better than before.
"There's actually something I've wanted to ask you Crystal for a long time now. The other wolves doesn't seem to think it would be a good idea to share with me what actually happened the night you returned and Sean challenged you for the leadership over the Pack. I was away on one of..." Avius refused to speak that filthy bastards name in front of Crystal, "... your friends missions in Blackpond to rescue some healers when it all happened. What I'm trying to ask is, what happened that night? Please, be honest with me, Crystal."
A small smile actually formed itself over Avius hidden lips after he finished; It was his first time saying 'please' to anyone outside of his own prayers. And It wasn't just that, because now he might just get the answers he had been waiting for so long.
