Puki is a soft spoken person, who usually remains calm. She doesn't like to draw much attention to herself, especially around people she doesn't know. She is a very huggy person, and can almost always be found hugging onto another member of the Flock. She has a hard time being alone or isolated, and being alone for an extended period of time can cause her to have panic attacks. She sometimes has issues sleeping, and sleeping alone due to nightmares of the School. When it comes to out siders, she is judgmental, distant and easily provoked. She doesn't trust them easily, if at all, and will always be watching them, making sure they don't hurt her family.

All was safe or at least for the moment. Alek hadn't gone far, she was still within hearing distance of her flock as she patrolled the outer perimeter of the house they were currently squatting in.
She listened as Puki and Rook moved around. Two up and most likely more to follow soon. Alek's currently visible tail flicked anxiously; they needed to leave soon. Moving was key to staying away from the School. With a sigh she silently trotted back, jumped onto a lower portion on the roof landing silently, and slid back in. Time to check on her family.
She moved like a shadow through the house. Most were still sleeping even if it was restless. Then she made her way to the kitchen where Puki and Rook were. She ruffled Rook's hair and then rubbed her cheeks to Puki's. "Everything alright?" She asked as her black, white, and orange tail gently swayed back and forth.
She debated making some food that they still had but decided to wait for everyone else wake up.

Rooke beamed seeing Alek walk into the room. He gave a small giggle to the hair ruffling, and went to sit down at the table where Puki was. The young boy remained quiet, looking up at his elders, figuring it'd be polite to let them talk. He simply nodded at Alek's question, and started to fish the rocks he had gotten out of his pocket. Maybe later he could skip these on some large body of water? He made sure to section off the shiny, abnormally colored rocks that he wanted to keep. Rocks were cool.

Tyson, who had gone out before first light for a night climb, sat quietly and motionless as he watched Alek and the house. From three quarters up a tree just far enough away to we he could see everything yet remain hidden. He climb back to the house and in through his open window. He quietly closed it behind him before letting out a quick sigh when he notice the noise in the kitchen. "Great. Everyone is up. Guess its time." he whispered to himself. Walking into the kitchen dressed in slightly dirty, sweaty green t-shirt and athletic short. "Morning all. Addy, you got to stop falling out off bed. We got enough problems without you getting hurt just getting out of bed." He said in a scolding tone. He really does love everyone but as the oldest guy he sees himself as the "father" of this family. And in keeping with that he will protect them even if it means they all hate him, at less they will be safe. The other thing is, the idea of her falling out of bed and getting hurt the same morning the erasers find them. Tyson has no issue with fighting till death to protect them but it would be better if they weren't hurt from something so stupidly childish as falling out off the bed. It doesn't help that his whole childhood he can remember was spent at the school so he never had such problems. "Puki, did you make sure they were mixed right? We need good healthy food and resources are very tight right now." Again just being the overly protective father. He then laid on the floor to start his morning sit-ups. "Hey birdboy. Mind giving me a hand and hold my feet?" It was an attempt at humor whether or not it was taken as such. He was also trying to connect with the boy the only way he knew how, exercise. looking over at Alek, "Why do you have to toy with the boy? He should be getting himself ready. You never know what's going to happen today. By the way, nice patrol this morning. I thought you had me a few times." He almost gave her a smile but he was careful not to. Besides, what he said about the boy was true, they already lost Alicia and will ALWAYS be hunted. Like with him, this life was no time for a fun childhood, it was time to train and prepare.

"You guys are no fun!" Addy teased, she loved teasing and being lighthearted with the others to make up for their current situation. She had always been one of the ones that never took anything too seriously, the others probably criticiszed her for it, but to her it was a coping mechanism. She never wanted to think about the possibility of anything going wrong so she just shoved it in the back of her mind. At the sound of Tyson's voice Addy turned to him, she had always been slightly afraid of him ever since she joined the group but she knew or more hoped that deep down inside he was a complete teddy bear. She flinched slightly at the scolding, she had never liked being in trouble before, "Sorry, I'll try to be more careful" she mumbled turning back towards the table.

She watched Rooke, Tyson, and Alek. She never herself had much felt like a fighter before, and just the thought of even having to fight terrified her. She sighed and turned back to face Puki who was still busying herself with the pancakes.

Without much room to move, Alek ended only doing some stretches, side planks, and finger push-ups. She didn't particularly feel like sweating more than she had too since she just changed into relatively clean clothes. Once finished, she looked to her flock and ordered, "Alright, Puki made breakfast everyone else set the table. We aren't a bunch of animals." She grinned with an animalistic glint in her eyes as her vulpine fangs gleamed mischievously at everyone. Within seconds of descending, her teeth retracted to their normal human bluntness. With grace only obtained by someone that had spend years perfecting, Alek moved to a nearby cabinet and started pulling plates to be passed off.

Tyson jumps up after finishing his workout. "Funny fox. By who out foxed the fox?" He let slip a small playful yet cocky smile, which he quickly caught and went back to his normal emotionless expression. Turning to Rooke, "Nice workout thanks kid." He always did enjoy having some one help him even when he didn't need it and it was also nice having Alek workout with him. Tyson had always seen her as more of the Alpha then he was, and next to Alicia, there was no one better suited to be. Unfortunately that meant two things for him; first, he had to be careful of how familiar he got with her. Its the Alphas choose in what kind of relationship she has with who, till she says other wise, she is the Alpha period. Second that meant his priorities as far as protecting the family goes, Alek the Alpha, then Rooke the youngest, Addy the young, Synxa the middle and lastly Puki the eldest. Of course this could all change if the Alpha wished it. The other reason he has a problem connecting with everyone, why he is so careful of his emotions is the girls all remind him of his younger sister in some way. She would be so proud of Alek's leadership, Synxa attention to her looks, Rooke's playfulness, but most importantly his sister would have been all over Puki and Addy. Who knows, if it had been her who lived, maybe she could help Puki sleep and Addy not fall out of bed. That last thought stopped Tyson in his tracks as he was about to sit at the table. A small hurting smile came over him and half sat half fell into his seat. Sitting at the table, still with the hurting smile, he stared at his plate as if some one was staring back at him.

With a smile at how smoothly everything was going, Alek passed the last off to Rooke with a quick ruffle of his hair. She turned to observe the flow of the kitchen. Everyone, for the most part, appeared content and it was her job to keep it that way. Her mind moved through thoughts like a hummingbird's wings. In all honesty Alek doesn't know when she became the leader of her flock, it kind of just happened one day. She takes her job seriously, but it causes her to internally panic more times than she'd like to admit. She pushed her insecure feelings aside to think about the next move, what are they going to do? She knew they needed to move on, staying in one place was too dangerous, but to where? It wasn't like she had the world mapped out perfectly in her head. Hell she barely knew where they were. She'd figure out of this place had a computer/internet before freaking out anymore. Step one, she at least had that.
Pushing off the counter with cups in her hand, she squeezed Addy's shoulder as she passed. "I'll have water please." She requested from the girl taking drink orders. She placed the cups in the center of the table and then made her way to a seat. As Rooke asked, "Tyson, are you okay? Did you think about something sad?" Alek's hand gently but firmly cupped around the back of Tyson's neck and stroked it with her thumb. She didn't know why she was so touchy when it came to praises and reassuring gestures, it wasn't like foxes were known for it. She'll blame it on her human side (which is her dominant DNA). With a gently squeeze, she moved on to where she was going to sit and plopped down ready to eat.

Rooke's eyes flickered up to Alek seeing her comfort Tyson. He pursed his lips a bit, figuring that Tyson would be okay. He IS a rather strong male, physically and (What Rooke assumed) Mentally. Rooke took a sip of his water, sitting so that his legs were crossed on the chair. He rested his elbows on his knees as he sat forward, chin resting on his hands after the sip of water. His mouth watered just at the smell of the pancakes. He frequently glanced back to see Puki hard at work. He grinned whenever he caught Puki's eye.

Still lost in thought about how great his sister would have been for this group, he did not hear Rooke. It wasn't till Alek touch his neck that he start to come around again. Instinctively as she stroked the back of his neck, he lowered and tilted his head away like a cat or dog who wants you to keep petting them would. As he snaps out of his day dream he noticed that he had been out of it for a little while and that he had shown a sign of emotion, or in his mind weakness around the others. Returning to his normal emotionless expression, "Excuse me. Puki, the pancakes smell good. Please, eat up everyone. Its not every morning we get such a nice breakfast." And with that he stood, pushed in his chair, and walked out the door making sure to close it behind him. Through the window they could see him jump and swing around one of the porch post as he climbs to the roof. Once at the highest point of the roof Tyson sits down and to himself, "The whitecoats were right. You are weak, to show such weakness in front of the others like that. If you were still at the school they would have you put down or worse for that. Maybe it really would have been better if she were here instead of you. For that matter even he would be better then you. How is an Alpha going to have any need of some one who falls apart so easy. No get back down there and eat." but no matter how much he tried, he just could not force himself to go back to the table, to face them after being so weak in front of them. The thought of exiling himself crossed his mind. They would need everyone at their best and cant afford some one as weak as him. Beside as an exile he could better track any erasers who are following and either attack them or at less try to trick them into following him.

"This does look delicious. You're the best, Puki." Alek grinned although her eyes watched Tyson leave and climb to the roof. She added extra pancakes to her plate, set aside to be packed for later. She knew Tyson would be hungry and probably say nothing, she wasn't stupid he was growing boy.
She ate silently most of her plate before an idea hatched in her head. She stood, opened the door, and called up. "Ty, be awesome and see if there's a computer in the house with internet. If there is look up large cities nearby. Thanks." She didn't give him time to answer before heading back inside and eating the rest of her meal. "Rooke, we'll look through the book on our way to our next destination. You can read to me to pass the time. After we're done here, we're cleaning up everything because we aren't slobs. Everyone got it?" She pointed her fork at each person around the table, then twirled it before stabbing another piece of pancake. She hummed as the fluffy pancake melted in her mouth. Cleaning up the house would give her time to think through her next moves once they found somewhere to go.

Tyson quickly pushed off and let himself slide down and over the edge of the roof. Were he reach back, grabbed the edge and let himself swing for a moment before dropping to the porch. He calmly walked back inside closing the door behind him and headed to the table. Once there grabbed Rooke water and pretended to drink some well giving him a playful wink. This of cource was his way of trying to be more "fun" and to mask his true feelings. After setting the glass back down in front of Rooke he grabbed Alek's water and walked toward the rest of the house to look for the computer. "Sure no problem miss fox boss lady. Oh and thanks for the drink... Addy." Now thinking he is trying to hard he continued to walk off take a drink from her glass. It wasn't long before he found a desktop in the back office/study area. Now came the real problem, how to logon, this one was password protected and the hint didn't really help. "Great! Found one! Give me some time to figure out the password though!" He shouted back towards the others. Tyson figured that he alone would never crack it, but if he had help or if the password was written down some were in the room it would be no problem. So he started carefully searching the room.

Rooke ate quietly, knowing it was impolite to talk with his mouth full. He watched Tyson leave with a frown on his face, but he didn't peruse the older male. When everyone had sat down at the table, save for Tyson, Rooke smiled hearing Alek mention the picture book that he had been given. He nodded gratefully, mumbling a 'thanks, that'd be great' or something along those lines. When Tyson came back, and grabbed his glass of water the sparrow boy was half tempted to quickly reach up and swipe it out of his hand. It was his first instinct, and his hand even flinched up slightly, but upon seeing the playful wink his instincts were swept away, and replaced with a playful attitude. He smiled back at the older male, laughing a bit, and then laughing even harder seeing Tyson take Alek's drink.

After finishing two full on pancakes, as well as his water, Rooke was stuffed. He cleaned up his dishes, as well as picking up anything else that was done being used, including other members plates. He put the dishes into the sink, washing them with a soapy sponge and water. Once done with that he went into his room. It wasn't too hard to pack up his little belongings. It was just 7 simple outfits, toiletries, and spare shoes that he had managed to find while scrounging about. He took the smooth colorful rocks from his pocket and put them in a large jar that was half full of similar rocks. He hummed as he closed the lid, and looked at his well made collection. "It's grown a lot more sense the last time I fully looked at it," Rooke sounded pleased with himself. After shoving the jar into his bag he looked around the empty room. Figuring blankets and pillows were also needed he managed to find a way to shove them into his already pretty full bag. Once forcing the zipper shut he double checked the entire room before nodding, content. But now what was he to do?

Figuring someone needed help, he went to go see if Tyson needed anything. He had heard him yell from the back room, so therefore knew he was looking for something. With Rookes extremely acceptable eye site he could probably help the other flock member. Going into the back room he lightly rapped on the door frame. "You need help looking for the password?" Rooke asked, hoping Tyson would help him. He gave Tyson a small smile.

Because she was nearly an adult, Alek narrowed her eyes and playfully stuck out her tongue when Tyson stole her water. She could tell that he was trying a little too hard to interact with everyone, but she didn't mind. At least he was trying. Forking the last of her meal, she watched Rooke start the dishes. "Excellent breakfast Puki, you're the best." As she brought her plate to the counter, she ruffled Puki's hair. Before relinquishing her plate to the soapy water, Alek found a Tupperware container and placed the three pancakes she reserved for Tyson in it. "Thank you, Little Sparrow." She rubbed her cheek to his as she placed her plate in the water. "Addy and Synxa would you mind packing water and some food? Not a lot because we have to carry them, but enough just in case? Greatly appreciated." Her eyes tracked Rooke as he disappeared to the room he had slept in. "Unless one of you learned anything from Alicia about breaking into computers, then that takes priority. Puki, if you could think of some essentials we'll need, please start packing them. I'm going to help Tyson find the password. Thanks guys." She smiled before heading to the room Tyson had placed his things. After putting the Tupperware on top of his bag, she wandered passed the study, saying "I'll check the master bedroom."
The room wasn't large, but it was bigger than the other two bedrooms. It looked lived in, full of life. Tapping her finger on her arm, Alek decided on the tables next to the bed. There were a few books (she took one that sounded interesting), pills, tissues, and other random things in them but nothing that would give away a password. Unsatisfied with those, she made her way to the bureau. Unlike the side tables, this piece of furniture was scattered with things from photos and perfume, to jewelry and notes. After sifting through the notes (which were boring reminders) she started pilfering different pieces of jewelry; some to keep, others to pawn off. If it would fit in her pocket easily, there it went. She didn't take all of it, but enough to ensure a decent cash in.
Having enough gold, silver, and jewels in her pocket, she picked up a picture of the happy family. It was a young couple, probably a few years older than herself. They were so happy and carefree. Her eyes narrowed at the security the couple felt. Something she and her flock may never have. She had the urge to smash the perfect couple's picture to pieces but thought better of it. Instead she flicked it behind her and listened to it land on the bed. Whatever, that life seemed boring anyway running for your life was the way to go. Continuing on her mission, she started going through the drawers which yielded nothing but clothes. She moved through the room finding nothing about a password. Before heading to the study, Alek took some makeup for Synxa and then walked to where her flock mates were. "Bedroom yielded nothing in the password department, but they left some clothes behind and a few other things. Where haven't you checked?"

Addy dug into her pancakes the second she was sure everyone was fine. She savored every bite seeing to how she wasn't sure when she'd get to eat pancakes again. She watched Tyson as he came back and forth between the rooms, giggling slightly when he tried to steal Rooke's water and then moved on to Aleks. She let her eyes stray to the picture book that Alek had given Rooke smiling slightly as the memories flashed and danced across her thoughts. She couldn't imagine or even fathom loosing any of them, Alicia was difficult for her, but she knew it probably effected Alek the most out of all of them. She was too lost in her thoughts to even notice that she had finished her pancakes, she mumbled a small thank you to Puki for the delicious meal and another to Rooke as he took her plate to wash it.

"Sure thing" She replied to Alek as she got up from the table and opened the fridge grabbing a handful of waters and a couple of bottles of juice. With her arms full she carried them down the hall and out into her temporary room. She set the bottles on the bed and drug out her bag from under the bed, putting all of the bottles inside. She still had room to pack her small closet of clothes, her necessities, and a small charm bracelet that had become one of her most prized possessions. She careful placed it in one of the side pockets and zipped her bag up dragging it to the edge of the doorway. She went back in just to rummage through the room and settled on taking a small quilted blanket that she had found in the closet, she didn't think that they would miss it anyway.

She lugged her bag and quilt out to the front door of the house ready for when they were going to head off.

"Tyson said it would give me the strength and fearlessness of a bear! I knew I was invincible! I can feel it's working already!" Rooke was panting heavily, seeing as he sprinted multiple doorways down a hallway. 'Running in a house always makes you more tired than running outside.... I wonder why' Rooke thought to himself, pausing for a moment before saying to Addy. "I thought Tyson was always neutral about me! I mean he's super quiet and reserved, so I figured he just hated everyone but then he started to ask me to help him work out, so I just thought he needed a work out buddy, speaking of work out buddy that whole helping him thing was fun, I think it'd be cool to do it again. Maybe even work out with him?! Oh that'd be so cool! We could both be manly together! Yes, this bear totem is such an invitation to friendship! Now Tyson and Alek are talking, I have no idea about what, probably on where we're going to go next? We're in the middle of no where, and I can't help but feel a little discouraged, I'm actually tempted to go up and stake out the next place we can sleep tonight. That'd be cool. In fact, I might actually do that." As Rooke rambled on his words got faster and faster, and his eyes slowly started to loose focus as he stared at Addy. When at the end of his ramblings he blinked, shook his head, and stood up straight looking back to Addy, normally. "That was weird," He mumbled.

Without another word Rooke turned on his boot heals and started to walk away. "You look very beautiful, Synax!" Rooke called over his shoulder. He was beaming, already starting to devise more on his plan. 'Alek will be so proud! I won't be the stupid little kid weighing everyone down now! I'll be useful, and now that I'm more brave I can face anything that I come up against! I'M INVINCIBLE!'. He lifted his arms in the air at the end of his tiny aside. Going to his room he grabbed the duffle back he packed up. Hiking it up onto his shoulders he looked around, making sure he wasn't going to leave anything behind. Rooke knew, of course, that any moment now it would settle into Abby and Syn all he had just said, so he knew he had to be quick before they could stop him on going on this, totally not reckless and stupid, journey.

He hurried out of his room, looking back to see Addy pretty much getting ready to run at him. Rooke made a weird nose at the back of his throat, and it actually sounded kinda like a chirp of a bird. He sprinted away, faster than Addy seeing as he was lighter. As he blew past Alek and Tyson, completely forgetting they were talking about something apparently important, he still thought it was the plan of where to go next, he yelled out, "I'll be back!" Bursting out the back door he shimmied his wings so they would be able to comfortably fly with the duffle bag strap between them. With a leap off the porch railing, his black and white wings burst out from his back, ripping his already ripped shirt where it had been sewn back together. With a quick stroke downward Rooke torpedoed up. He could control his speed easily, and he set his mind on going fast. His amazing eyes looked around as he flapped his wings to shoot off what he figured was East. Of course he didn't see anything right away.

He had explored 1 mile out in every direction sense they've been at the small cottage, so he knew that it'd probably take a little longer, maybe about 5 miles, to see if there was any suitable place to go. The young sparrow still thought his idea was the most brilliant idea ever. 'The others will be so proud to know I'm doing something to help!' Rooke thought as he raced East.

Alek was pretty relaxed until the word eraser was spoke. Within seconds her body locked up and fur puffed out. The automatic response was beyond her control, she appeared bigger (thus the purpose of puffing out), her needle like fangs dropped, breathing slowled but became deeper, and her slitter pupils dilated to take in everything.

Although she was 100% ready to fight any threats her way, Alek had been taught to listen even when threatened. She listened as Tyson fell apart in front if her. Honesty she was not only annoyed but pissed off no one had given her a heads up early. She had been living with him for over a year! If anything, Alicia should have told her just in case something happened. Case in point, she was kidnapped and they were left on their own. Good going Alicia...

Taking a deep breath she forced herself to calm down. One of the few things positive about her wonderful time at the school, she did learn control. Had to really I'm her line of work (assassination and stealing). Getting control over herself, she dropped in front of Tyson after he had finished about the unfortunate events regarding his biological siblings.

She thought a moment before creeping closer and hooking her finger under his chin to make sure his eyes looked into hers. "It's a tragedy you had to go through that, I don't know how losing a sibling feels but I offer you my condolences. However, if I find out that you are secretly working for The School and are still an eraser I promise you I will eviscerate you. I will do anything to protect our flock even if it means killing you.

"That being said," Alek's eyes softened while she removed her finger from his chin and started carding them through his short hair. "You are still part of this flock, this weird yet wonderful family. I will stand by you and protect you just like everyone else. You were designed to be a killer, to hunt us down... that doesn't mean you have to. We were all in some way created to do so. Hell I'm supposed to be an assassin." She grinned, trying to ease some tension. "We're family, no matter what you were supposed to be. Free will is a wonderful and terrible privelage, keep being you." She gave him a tight hug before looking towards the door startled. Rooke ran by yelling something before taking to the air.

With a groan, Alek rubbed her forehead. "This flock sometimes. PUKI! Can you make sure Rooke doesn't get lost or introuble, please?" She looked back down at Tyson with a grin. "Don't worry anymore, you can tell the rest when you're ready or not at all. I'm here either way. Now," She stood up and offered a hand. "Let's find our next destination."

Tyson smiled as he listened to Alek explain how she would protect the flock no matter what and about how much she would support him. He took her hand and stood up. In a happy voice, which was rare for him, "Alek. You and the others are as much my family as my sister and brother ever were. Its the reason I am the way I am around all of you. Its the reason I acted the way I did this morning, you all remind me of them so much. I swear on my life I will do ANY... thing to protect you and the flock. Alek, you are my Alpha. Your will is my will, my life is yours. That's an other reason I am trying to connect with the others, because it is how you are. I promise to do as you say from this moment on, my Alpha. I will protect you and our family with my life. As far as the school goes... I want to see that place burn to the ground. And if you command it I will gladly do so. In the mean time, I will help you find our next destination." Turning to the computer which still had the map of the area up, he quickly search the area. He found a city, a small town and... a hunting camp. Tyson quickly pulled up a search of the hunting camp and city to find out if they would be ok. Turns out that the hunting camp belongs to a paramilitary group that don't take kindly to outsiders and the city just got all new security systems put in. "Alek, we got a problem... There is a group in the mountains not to far away and they don't like outsiders. I can only imagine what a group like that would do to us. And the only nearby city just got a security upgrade thanks to a generous donation from our favorite group. I think if we can keep a low profile we maybe ok but it will be hard to stay hidden or see danger coming... Speaking of which... were is Rooke going?"

He turned to the door, he hated people going off on their own, unless it was himself of course. Tyson hurried out the room heading for the front door. "Synxa, beautiful, can you keep an eye on Alek for me. Addy can you make sure every thing is ready to go by the front door? And Puki, your with me. We're going to get Rooke." he said this as he passed each of them and grabbed his bag on his way out the door. Once outside he swung he bag onto his back and leaped climbing up the nearest tree. He looked back to make sure Puki was following and was going to be able to keep pace.

Alpha. That was a strange word to be finally verbalized. Alek knew, to some degree, that Tyson had probably seen her as his leader (Alpha) after Alicia died. He, like everyone else in the flock, followed her with very little questioning involved. They followed her to this isolated, no one around for miles house. Seriously, they should have had some say. She understood that it was safe for the time being, but really they knew nothing about the area... which apparently had a hunter's camp right next door. Wonderful, the day keeps getting better.

With a sigh, she continued looking into the city and camp as Tyson went in search for their lost sparrow. She's going to have to give everyone the Buddy System talk. That'll be number seven on her list of things to do. "Shit." She muttered looking into everything known about the hunter's camp. Up side they were all humans. No genetically modified part animal part human hybrids or erasers. Always a plus. However, they were quite terrifying to read about. They didn't follow the government, they were radical, and they didn't give a shit about anyone but themselves. If you are trespassing, even if it was an accident, they appear to shoot first and ask questions later.

Leaning back in her chair while rubbing her eyes, Alek thought out a plan. They needed to get out of here. First, find Rooke and possibly save him. Could be easy if they didn't care about showing off their unique alterations to their genetic code. Which would make hiding from The School harder. Hopefully Rooke was fine and Tyson and Puki would get to him before the hunter's did. Not her immediate problem at the moment. She trusted her flock mates to either take care of the problem or call for help. Next, figure out what to do once everyone was together. They needed to stay under the radar once near and in the city. Slipping in was their best choice meaning they couldn't show any of their... gifts. She mentally noted to make sure to tell everyone not to show their wings, tails, ears, extreme climbing abilities, etc. Anything that a normal human couldn't do, they needed to hide. IF things went well and they found Rooke unharmed (she doubted that because the world didn't seem to favor them) she would send him, Tyson, Addy, and Puki to find somewhere to live while in the city. She and Synax would hit the underground, make friends with the runaways, transients, and homeless. They were always good people to know. They knew the city the best and in a pinch could probably help them escape or hide.

Memorizing every route between the house and the city, she shut down the computer and looked around one last time before heading downstairs to where Addy and Synax were. With her bag slung over her shoulders, she watched as the two younger girls moved around to finish packing. "I going to wait just outside the back door in case there's a call for help. If you need me for anything let me know. Thank you." She smiled and walked out the door, leaving it open for easy access.

Rooke quickly got up from where he was kneeling. His heart raced as he raced away from the unfriendly voices. He could smell the overwhelming smell of gun oil now that he was paying attention. His cut nose wrinkled in discust at the smell, reminding him of the guns the erasers and guards use to carry around. Rooke was unable to run far, and therefore had to quickly stop and dive under a bush, 100 yards away from where he fell. His wings were hard to shove under the bush with him, and he couldn't retract his wounded wing. Rooke attempted to steady his breathing as he looked out from the bush, trying to see if he couldn't get a look at the owner of the gruff voices.

He was unable to see around a few trees, but he was able to see where he landed, feathers and broken branches strewn across the ground. He got a good look of a long muzzle that belonged to a rifle. He continued to not have the ability to see past a cluster of trees. Rooke, catching his breath quickly, rustled out from under the bush he was under. Instead of sprinting away he chose to sneak from tree to tree, going around the back of the men. Finally able to see past the wall of trees, he saw there were about 3 or 5 men. Rooke didn't know, he got those two numbers mixed up usually. It looked more than 3, so he assumed it was 5. His lips pursed as he started to back up, having seen enough. When his wings hit something soft, warm, and moving, he froze. "And what do you think you're doing?" A gruff voice growled in back of him.

Tyson pause only for a moment to wait for Puki knowing a kid with his energy and wings could be anywhere by now. He took off through the tree branches like the forces of hell were on his trail. As he swung and leaped from tree to tree he could only think that this was his fault. Had he not given him that darn thing, had he not sent him out of the room, maybe Rooke wouldn't be out he right now. Knowing that the hunting camp, which was so small that it barley showed up on the map, expressly after the paramilitary group took over was only a few miles away, that would be his starting point. Tyson assumed that the group would be trying to keep a low profile which would explain why the flock hadn't noticed them, but to be safe, he darted to the top of the tree for a better look. He saw smoke coming from the direction of the camp, which meant one of two things to him, its just their breakfast fire or the group is gearing up for something. Just then he heard a cry echoing off the mountains but it was definitely Rooke. With all the speed he could Tyson was on the move again.

As he neared the camp he slowed down to listen for any sign of Rooke. That's when he heard the men walking through the woods and moved in as quietly as possible for a closer look. From his new vantage point he could see the five men closing on Rooke. Just before He could jump down to grab him, a man's voice scared him and forced him to look away from the group to a man standing toe to toe with Rooke. Without a second thought Tyson dove at the man behind Rookie with his fangs and claws fully extended as rage filled his eyes. He plunged his claws into the man's chest puncturing his heart and left lung. He quickly pulled his claws out of the man as he turned in the direction of the other five men. Driven by rage and the need to protect his own, Tyson jumps and swings off a tree branch in an attempt to land on one of the men but instead lands crouched in front of one of them. Quickly springing up, he lounges at the mans throat and pins the man to the ground. He thrust his claws into the mans shoulder as he uses his fangs to rip apart the mans jugular. Blood sprays every were as the man tries to scream for help, but cant as he lays helpless well his friends watch shock and surprised, at less for the moment. Tyson had forgotten at this point that a hurt ten year old was only a few feet away, hidden only by a tree. Who now stands over a corpse, killed by a member of his family, the same one now almost lost to his animal bloodlust.

Rooke was about to turn around when he heard the sound of air whipping past him. Rooke gasped, and spun around just in time to see Tyson tackling the man. Rookes feet, which refused to move, got tangled together, forcing him down onto his butt. He caught himself with both hands, but the recoil made his shoulder scream in pain. Rooke gave a short cry, but stopped hearing the sound of ripping flesh. His eyes went wide, looking up to see Tyson going crazy. By the time Rooke fully processed that a dead body was next to him, Tyson was on his third guy.

The sparrows jaw dropped as he started to tremble, the pain in his body forgotten as fear and adrenaline took over. He stared at Tyson as blood splattered everywhere, a few drops splashing his cheeks. Rooke flinched feeling the hot, salty, sticky blood smack onto his cheek. His breath shuttered out of him with every exhale as he slowly reached up and brushed off the multiple drops of crimson liquid. He stared at his fingertips, smeared in the blood. Tears resumed to pour out of his eyes, staining his face even more. Rooke looked up, trembling in terror as he stared at Tyson. The men of the hunting came had the same face, only a few of them left. Finally breaking free of his frozen state, Rooke slowly stood up, struggling for balance as he continued to shake.

The sound of a snapping twig caught Tyson's attention, it was the fourth man slowly backing away. The man stopped as soon as he snapped the twig. Tyson leaped to his feet, gave a "Your next" smile at the man before jumping in front of him. Just then he heard a familiar voice which caused him to turn and look around. As he did the last man was leveling his rifle at Tyson, who in response flipped over the man in front of him and grabbed his throat. He was holding just tight enough that his claws were just piercing his skin. Small drops of blood formed around Tyson's claws as the rifleman took aim and mouthed "I'm sorry" before closing his eyes. BANG! The man shot, thanks to him closing his eyes his aim had drifted shot the round hit the man Tyson was holding in his right shoulder. At that close of range the round went through its target and into Tyson's right shoulder. With a primitive animalistic growl, Tyson's hand squeezed and was jerked back by the force of the shot. This force Tyson to rip the man's throat out with great force. Before the man's lifeless body hit the ground Tyson closed the distance to the rifleman with even more rage fueled by adrenaline. He grabbed the rifle and in a angry voice, "Guns are bad." Pulling the gun towards himself alittle, he jabbed the man with it forcing him to let go of it. Quickly Tyson turned the gun around and aimed it at the man, "Death to all who threaten MY FAMILY!" BANG! One round to the head and as he fell Tyson throw the rifle at him.

Now that all the men were died he turned his attention to the only two living people around. He walked over to Rooke and Puki and looked the two of them in the eyes, blood still dripping from his mouth, covering his shirt and hands. His eyes still full of rage and bloodlust, but as the fear in their eye sunk in Tyson was force to look away, and as he did his eyes fell upon the bear totem around Rooke's neck. All of the rage left his eyes as the fact that he was staring down his own family sunk in. In a quiet, ashamed and worried voice, "I'm... I'm... sorry. Thank you Puki for helping, but I need you as the only non injured one to hurry back to the house and tell Alek... I... I have failed my Alpha. That Rooke is hurt and I am bringing him in, but we have to move quickly." After saying that he turned to Rooke, "You have to trust me. I am still the same Tyson you knew this morning, the one how gave you that totem. Now hold on to it and hold tight to me, I'm going to get you back home and your going to be fine. By morning you'll be ready to start working out with me if you want." As carefully as possible Tyson pick Rooke up with his left arm and started to make his way towards the house. Thankfully adrenaline makes for such a good pain kill so even with a bullet in the sholder he could still out run a normal human.

Rooke was shuttering, flinching at Puki's touch. He looked up to her, seeing she was afraid as well. His head jerked back hearing the gun shot, and he even let out a little yelp. He watched Tyson get shot, rip out a mans throat, and finally shoot a man in the head. His eyes were wide, and his jaw was clenched. He had run out of tears so he was just hiccupping, wincing at every movement of his lungs, and shaking. When Tyson walked over to them Rooke tried his best not to take a step away. Noticing the blood lust leaving the older males eyes he instantly started to calm down. He listened to Tysons words, and when Rooke was picked up he instantly hugged tightly onto Tyson with his good arm, making sure not to hurt him. Rooke couldn't help but nuzzle is face into Ty's neck. "I-I'm so-sorry... I d-didn't mean t-to c-c-c....Cause so much troub-ble..." The hiccups made it hard for him to talk without stuttering. "I-I thought that may-ybe I could h-help, instead of being usele-ess like I always a-am..."

His lip quivered as he looked in back of them, staring at all the dead bodies. He shrunk more against Tyson, his injured wing helplessly hanging out to the side. "I can't p-put my wings back in... They-ey're to injured," He mumbled, feeling stupid for getting so hurt. He looked at Tysons shoulder, frowning as he sniffled, trying to wipe away some sap on his cheek. At first he reached out to check Ty's wound with his right arm, but quickly returned it back to his chest, not wanting to movie it. Instead he looped his arm around Tysons neck and softly pushed his shirt off his shoulder, seeing the bullet had blown all the way through. "We'll need someone to h-help you with your shoulder, Tyson...." He gave Ty a tiny smile, trying to make himself feel less stupid. He moved Tysons shirt back, and then leaned back to look at the blood on his face. Rooke frowned, then pursed his lips. Grabbing onto the front of Tysons shirt with this bad arm Rooke managed to pivot around enough to grab the duffle bag, which was on his back still. He rummaged around blindly before pulling out the blanket he had taken from the cabin. Looking at it he gave a tiny shrug with his good shoulder before reaching over and starting to wipe the blood off of Tysons mouth. "Don't tell the others how I fell.... Just tell them I saw the camp and got beat up or something... It's too embarrassing telling them I wasn't paying attention and a bird hit my shoulder," He mumbled, blushing and frowning a bit.

Rooke went quiet upon seeing him and Tyson were back at their camp. Rooke frowned when pulled away from Tyson, and he only have a tiny not in response to Alex. He went over to Puki and Synax, looking down at the ground. He was starting to get tired, the adrenaline in his system incredibly low. His shoulder had a heart beat, and his side ached as he reached his good arm over, and pulled his duffle back slowly off his head. Rooke refused to look at anyone, knowing all of this worry and pain was the fault of his stupidity. His injured right wing continued to drag behind him, sticking out, but the other wing was folded close to his body. He reached over and started to anxiously play with the feathers at the end, frowning still and looking down like a puppy who was just scolded. "My side hurts, too," He mumbled, looking up with his good eye to Synax and Puki. His lips pursed, quickly looking back down.

Addy looked up to watch as Puki stumbled to the ground, Alek catching her so she wouldn't fall. As the words tumbled out of her mouth, her eyes widened in shock and terror as she watched Tyson and Rooke appear just behind her. Oh god there's so much blood.. She thought looking at Tyson, she was unsure if it was his or someone else's but she didn't want to find out. At Alek's instructions she quickly ran to Puki's bag getting the first aid kit then to the kitchen to get hot water and rags. She stumbled back to the main area and set the stuff down next to Alek, "That's all we have" she said.

She was suddenly distracted, when Rooke's voice came out in a small whimper, she turned to him and at the sight of him almost began to cry, she knew Alek had her hands full with Tyson, and she wanted to help. She quickly dashed over to him and gently grabbed his cheeks turning his head slightly to look for any major injuries in the areas where it would be most detrimental. She had watched Alek many times patch everyone up and picked up some skills of her own. She turned to his most problematic area, his wing. She lightly touched the area where the wing connected to his shoulder and searched his face, "Does that hurt? Can you move it any?" She asked calmly.
