Nova

In the cool of the underground room, Nova the sandy ice wolf scout listened with intent. It was all he could do now, for beneath the dressing wrapped around his head and eyes he could not see. It had taken several days it seemed for the others to accept it, with rousing words that he just needed time to heal. But from the moment that that window had exploded in his face, he had known. He would never see his home again.

β€œShall we interfere with the public execution tomorrow and attempt to free our comrade in arms, Summanus? Yay or Nay?”

It was a simple enough question. So much easier to ask than to answer. For to say yay would lead to the death and injury of others to attempt to save one. And saying nay, well. That would to be callous to one they had all called comrade. Nova couldn't imagine that many would have the same will to fight if they knew their comrades would not try to save them on capture. But would not others feel guilt for those killed in the rescue attempt?

He didn't know how he what he would think were he the one in Summanus' cell. Before, when he could see, he felt like the answer would have been an immediate "get me out of here." But that's when he had a family to look forward to seeing again.

He had to stop these thoughts.

They were a worse curse than the blindness.

Nova's ears flicked as silence hung in the room. It seemed to have a weight all of its own, leading Nova to think that he was not the only one brooding. He licked his lips, deciding to be the one to bite back at the heavy blanket of silence. He put his paws on the table as a prelude to speaking.

"Well, if it were me, I would say don't try to get yourselves killed saving me," Nova started, feeling strange at being unable to read other wolves facial cues as he spoke. He assumed that since he wasn't being interrupted it was okay to continue. "But since he ain't here to say that for himself, I don't think we can decide that for him. I say aye."

Nova then leaned back, taking his paws off the table and setting them on the cushion, at pains to listen for a reaction. Considering he would be about as useful as a leaky bucket in any rescue attempt, would they think him selfish for assenting to a dangerous rescue attempt he could hardly play a part in?
