Fang Hunter, Mydnyte, Durandel


Durandel watched as Nova seemed to have finally passed out. The Ausi was beat and the heat isn't doing him any favors in regards to his condition. That was when Vesta and Amarok had suddenly rushed out causing things to be worse for his poor friend. He would run after them if it didn't hurt so much to move. Yet this greatly troubled Mydnyte who barked after the pair. "NO!! Now is NOT the time for your antics!!" He barked to no avail. He growled as Vesta lit up part of the shop, just what was she doing!? Not to mention he was greatly concerned about Amarok, whom he considered to be the last member of his Pack. "Fang we have to go after them." He said. "Yeah but we gotta put out the fire first." Fang mentioned.

As the two Kamaria went up to the front they heard someone on the otherside of the fire. "No, no, no, stop! Stop burning!" The voice cried. Fang went over to the vantage point to see that Tenneth from earlier putting out the fire with his own body. "Hey, what are you doing!?" Fang called out. Chaz however wasn't focused on the voice that called towards him. He was more concerned with putting out the flames. He stomped on the fire with paws over and over and over again. "Just hold on, we're coming to help!" Fang said as he went out the side entrance. He looked to see that Chaz had snuffed out most the fire and with a couple more stomps he had killed it. "Are you alright?" Fang had asked. Chaz looked over to him panting, "Y-Yeah..." Chaz wheezed. "Here come inside we've got a Wolf here that might help with any burns." Fang spoke. Chaz nodded his head and went inside.

Mydnyte looked at the Tenneth quizzically as if trying to gauge him as a Wolf. "You won't believe it but this Wolf put out the flames with his own paws." Fang said to Mydnyte. "W-Well...Tenneth don't burn like other Wolves...so Chaz thought he should be able to snuff it out himself." He said. "Hm, did you see where those other Wolves went?" Mydnyte asked. Chaz was a little put off by the question. "W-Well," Chaz paused feeling nervous about the answer, since he didn't get a clear look at which direction they went. He was scared the black wolf will yell at him again. "Well, out with it!" Mydnyte growled. Chaz yipped. "I-I-I'm sorry! Chaz didn't get a good look at where they ran! C-Chaz was scared that his friends would've burned alive! That's why I put out the flames!! I-I'm sorry, I know Chaz is useless!" He cried. Then Fang tried to calm him down. "No, your not useless, you helped to stop the fire from becoming a huge problem. Thank you." Chaz perked up as he looked towards Fang surprised.

"You...don't think Chaz is useless?" He asked with big puppy dog eyes. Fang a little off put by the look nervously responded, "No, not particularly." Fang chuckled. "That's the nicest thing anyone has said to me! You're a good Wolf!" Chaz said nearly to tears. "Please, don't, don't blubber like that." Fang asked nearly embarrassed by the Wolf. "Good grief! You really are pathetic aren't you?" Mydnyte groaned. "Well what should we do now? Try and find them?" Fang asked. "Vesta should know her way around, I'm sure she'll be fine but Amarok, we need to find her right away." Mydnyte said as he walked past Fang and Chaz. "You stay here Fang...most of the Wolves here are injured and they are going to need protection, I'll go at it alone." Mydnyte decided. "You sure?" Fang asked. Mydnyte turned and nodded to Fang before running off himself.

Durandel looked over to see the commotion. "Never a dull moment...huh, Nova? You alright by the way?" He asked. That was when Blue came to. Almost immediately she went over to check on the poor Ausi. Durandel will admit, it was good to see her up and around.

"Ah, nevermind this place is far too hot. It's making me dizzy." She sat beside Durandel, "Why couldn't you have been a flower wolf, Khan? That way we'd be fighting in a field of flowers instead of this hot mess."

"If we were all flower wolves then the world would be a better place." Durandel responded. "I'm glad to see your still with us. Seeing all of his on death's door was starting to bring me down." Durandel spoke as he looked over to Nova. "I wish we didn't have to fight anymore...I wish we could all just come together and talk through our problems rather than commit to bloodshed." He spoke mopingly. Durandel looked over to the recent commotion talking about an apparent fire and it's subsequent quenching. It would seem they found a friendly Tenneth for once, though this new Tenneth sounded wimpy. That's pretty funny in an ironic sort of way. It would seem Vesta and Amarok are the source for this new development, Durandel could only sigh. If he wasn't so hurt he would help but right now his best option to wait it out. Though he was beginning to believe that waiting it out here was becoming a worse idea by the minute.


There was a hollowness in her chest, as she closed her eyes. "It is likely that after all of this is over, not all of us will be able to group together like this. That being said," Blue looked up towards Fang and Mydnyte, "What are we going to do now?"

Fang just scratched at his ear and gave a sigh. "It's too dangerous to get up and move around, we've already had two of our group just bolt off for no good reason. Right now, we need to regroup with the rest of the Resistance if we're going to do anything else. Except it's going to be difficult to move when quite a bit of you are injured. I can't carry all of you by myself." Fang answered.


***

Mydnyte did his best to follow Amarok's scent as he looked around for the young She-Wolf. He heard some of the Tenneth wandering around, it seems like they've about gained control of the situation. That was when he heard a howl, some of the nearby Tenneth were being called. He overheard one of them say about cutting off a fugitive that was heading in this direction. He could only assume they must be talking about Amarok. Which was unfortunate for her, for a Kamarian she wasn't very good at being stealthy. Now more than twice the amount of Wolves was after her. Too many for her to fight off, even with Mydnyte which he would come to find out in a few moments.

Mydnyte tried his best to move ahead of the incoming Prometheans but it was hard since he had to keep from revealing his position as well. That was when he decided he need a better sight of where she was. Mydnyte ducked into a nearby two-story building. It would seem the Wolves inside had been evacuated in light of the recent attack. Mydnyte climbed the stairs and made his way to the roof to get a better look. There he saw her, Amarok was being chased by somewhere around a dozen Wolves. "By the fang! Did she have to get the whole army after her?!" Mydnyte cursed underneath his breath. Luckily she was faster then the pursuing Wolves but she was about to be cut off by a squad of Tenneth. Seeing this, Mydnyte decided to manipulate what little shadows were there in a nearby alley. Creating his best shadow decoy, he had the image of a Wolf step out from behind the wall and then quickly turn and bolt away. "There, there's the rebel trash!" One of the Tenneth shouted. The squad then bounded down the alleyway running after his decoy. This cleared the way for Amarok but now they have to shake the rest of them. Mydnyte lept from roof to roof to get ahead of Amarok so he could cut her off.

After leaping down a few rooftops he was able to get ahead of Amarok quite a ways down. That was he called out to her from a nearby alley before she ran past him. "Amarok over here!" He called out to her.

Amarok
The more she ran the more desperate she got to loss her pursuers. Just as she was running out of ideas she heard a familiar voice call out to her. Quickly she summoned what shadow she could to try and distort her figure enough to hide in the rubble and ash. Well also summoning her two shadow friends, sending them in two different direction to hopefully draw the guards away. Diving into the ally she heard the voice from, she laid as still as possible. It seemed to work till one guard stopped. "I know your here little one." The guard said as he watch his men split up to follow the two shadow wolves. "Your lucky I have to round up my patrol. But know this, I have your sent. I will find you again and I will end you, slowly." The guard then ran off.
Wait till she felt it was safe to move Amarok stood up. looking at Mydnyte. "Well that was fun. Good job finding me. Still no sign of Vesta. Hope she is ok. So you wouldn't happen to know were to go from here would you? I got kinda turned around. And when are we going to meet up with the rest of the resistance?" Trying to not show how worried or tired she really was, she rubbed her chest burring Blue's pendent deep in her fur in an attempt to hide it.
************
Vesta
After being checked out by the medic and allowed to clean up Vesta laid down on a bed in the back of the barracks. Her friend brought her some rations and water to which she grateful for. After eating and drinking she let sleep overtake her but before that could happen, "When you're ready please come with me, Lord Prometheus is anxious to speak with you." Jumping to her feet at the mention of Prometheus, Vesta looks at who was talking. Not knowing this wolf but if he can bring her to him then, "I'm ready now. Lead the way. It would be rude to keep the Alpha waiting." Trying to shake off how tired and hurting she is, she followed her escort. As she walked her training kicked in, she started to take note of everything. How many guards, patrol routes, changes of the guards, blind spot, cover, etc. She was so focused on the detail she hardly noticed a very familiar wolf walk past them as the entered the palace. A moment later it clicked were she was a the guards opened the door and there stood an all to familiar large wolf. "Prometheus!?" She couldn't help herself, she ran towards him when two of his guards jump in front of her blocking her path. Baring their teeth at her, waiting for the command to kill. Vesta stood proud and unbothered, staring at Prometheus. "I am Vesta, daughter of Augue."
************
Augue
After delivering the message Augue made is way to the Alpha guard barracks to talk to his Lieutenant. "Sir permission to take a few men to finish this fight. I think we sat here long enough." The Lieutenant looked up from his maps, "First off, remember your place. Second, I agree. With the army away, all these outsiders here and the captain staying by the Alpha's side more then normal, we need to put these rebels down, once and for all. Go take two and don't come back till you found the rebels." "Yes sir." Turning around he motions to two guards waiting nearby. "You two on me. We're going hunting." The three leave the room in a hurry and head towards the industrial sector. One of the guards speaks up "Sir. Why are we heading back here? We've had guard searching since the attack. If there were any rebels here I'm sure we would have found them by now." With a smile Augue replied, "First call them what they are, traitors. second, you sound like a common solider or guard, here I thought you were Alpha guards. Yes we have had guards looking but they are trained to look a the world in one way were we have to look at the world in every way." Stopping just inside the industrial sector, "What do you see?" "I see a destroyed industrial sector." "Really because I see hiding spots, ambushes, I see a remapped sector that the traitors could take full advantage of. There that shop a little ways down from the factory, close enough to get to in a hurry but far enough to no be fully destroyed in the blast. You two take point I will watch your back." The guards nod to each other before heading towards the shop. Once in view of the front of the shop. "I have to tell you guys, I really have the up most respect for anyone who fights for what they believe in, those who are willing to die for it. Like the two of you, just know its nothing personal." The two guards stop and look confused at each other as Augue leap one of them. Biting between armor plats he grabs the guards neck and turns the guards head toward the other one. As he bit down tighter the guard he was attacking let out a fire ball hitting his friend square in the face, killing him instantly. With a quick twist of his head Augue snapped the guards neck. He slowly walked towards the front door of the shop. With a quick sniff. "I know your in there resistance, this is one of the rendezvous points. I'm coming in and I'm not looking for a fight. Don't worry no one else is around." As he finishes talking he walks up to the front door and looks in before entering.

Blue


Fang just scratched at his ear and gave a sigh. "It's too dangerous to get up and move around, we've already had two of our group just bolt off for no good reason. Right now, we need to regroup with the rest of the Resistance if we're going to do anything else. Except it's going to be difficult to move when quite a bit of you are injured. I can't carry all of you by myself." Fang answered.

Blue was itching to move, and give her stress a physical outlet but everything was working against her. By the time anything actually happens, I'll be dead from all this stress. Why won't things ever go my way for once!? Her ears twitched, the only outward sign of her irritation.

With a quick sniff. "I know your in there Resistance, this is one of the rendezvous points. I'm coming in and I'm not looking for a fight. Don't worry no one else is around." As Augue finishes talking, he walks up to the front door and looks in before entering.

Blue got to her paws instantly, save for a small moment where she swayed, she thought she looked intimidating. She was growling and baring her teeth like an honest warrior however... it really didn't suit her. Especially since her teeth were only half bared and the growl she had hoped to sound aggressive ended up... Well, sounding like a young cub trying to snarl. It all ended in a cough. Yeah, Blue pretending to be half heartedly aggressive at any other time would make even the most serious wolf laugh, yet in this situation it showed her dedication to her part as a spy.

Had she actually taken this seriously, she would have proven her mother's bloodline in ferocity alone. That aside, even though she was a spy and a soldier, deep inside she just wished for all the fighting to stop. She was not bloodthirsty or war hungry like the rest of her siblings were. Though the instincts of a predatory wolf did live in her, she wasn't so quick to act on it... What a poor excuse of an Alvan she would be.

"Fang, what do we do?" Blue barked the question at the young rookie of a leader. With Mydnyte gone, she had assumed he held the power of a leader. "Shouldnt we kill him? What if he's a spy?"

Blue wanted them to fight amongst themselves.

Blossom

Blossom really hoped Fang knew this Blue wolf and that he would tell her quickly when Tiberius appeared beside her. With an empty pail. "We shouldn't be here, Feathers..." The pail is empty...

Blossom looked back at the blind wolf known as Mister Nova and looked back at Tiberius. She did this several times before a feeling of frustration made her want to pluck her feathers out. Of course she didn't do this, nor did she take her anger out on Tiberius but... she couldn't help but grind her teeth. "Just think of it as an adventure, 'Berius. And please can you get some more water? But this time take it to Mister Nova so he can wash out his eyes?" Without waiting for an answer, she tried to grab Mister Fang's attention but he was awfully busy situating everyone and just talking about things that couldn't hold her attention at all.

Blossom was irked with not being able to get anyone to talk to her... since they were all talking! Sometimes at once and apparently two strange she wolves had decided to leave against their leader's commands... And mister Nova fell unconscious! And Mister Mydnyte left, too! Blossom felt like the world was moving in a giant swirl around her and her breathing was... getting to heavy... not enough air...

With a quick sniff. "I know your in there Resistance, this is one of the rendezvous points. I'm coming in and I'm not looking for a fight. Don't worry no one else is around." As Augue finishes talking, he walks up to the front door and looks in before entering.

He looked scarier than the big fire wolf besides Mister Nova, but that was.... Everything was... moving! And the ground was spinning away!

"Fang, what do we do?" Blue barked the question at Mister Fang. "Shouldnt we kill him? What if he's a spy?"

Blossom had had enough of this nonsense, her fur and feathers revealing her annoyance with the way they puffed up.

She snapped, "EVERYONE SHUT YOUR YAPS! WE HAVE HURT WOLVES HERE WHO NEED IT TO BE QUIET! AND NO ONE IS KILLING OR FIGHTING ANYONE!" She raged at the black she wolf who had suggested killing the new scary wolf before turning to face Chaz, "CHAZ YOU'RE NOT USELESS SO PLEASE STOP CRYING! NOW! NO ONE ELSE IS LEAVING THIS PLACE UNTIL I CHECK EVERYONE FOR SERIOUS OWIES." The little she wolf stood strong and confident for once. Maybe it's cause she was emulating a mad Drais? If she really was trying be like Drais, then even the biggest wolf here would be afraid of her and do as she said, regardless of her size and age. "Now, I'm sorry for shouting but Mister Fang," she cleared her throat, "I'm sure this stranger isn't so scary but please, can you answer my earlier question?"

#, as written by Krypt
Nova

The salve given to him by the young nurse seemed to be working, as some of the swelling had begun to recede. Having applied a bit of the excess goop to the pad of his paw, Nova picked at some of the glass that he had stepped on with his teeth. He managed to pull a couple shards out while he listened to Durandel pine.

"I'm glad to see your still with us. Seeing all of his on death's door was starting to bring me down. I wish we didn't have to fight anymore...I wish we could all just come together and talk through our problems rather than commit to bloodshed."


Nova spat out particularly nasty shard before pressing his paw into his fur to stem the bleeding. "Might be sadder, but sure is a lot easier to fight, mate. Have you ever heard two wolves argue without getting angry? The strong don't need to reason. Wolves like to prove they're strong rather than preach it," Nova responded with a grimace. His pad felt like it was on fire, but perhaps he would be able walk on it without causing further damage.

"In fact you know what happened when I tried to talk to my pack about Rashid? It was right after our prison break. It was almost like they didn't want to believe all this was because of him, because that would mean that we would have to stop our-" Nova continued, before he was decisively interrupted by all sorts of snarling and shrieking. It was the little healer wolf that ultimately won the noise war, but Nova was more focused on wishing she would snap her yap than wondering why she raged. Something about owies.

After she quieted down, Nova returned to his first thought. "Case in point mate. It'd be much easier to deal with a screamin' pup like that with a quick swipe of the claws than talking it out."

Tiberius

Tiberius had just begun to reluctantly follow his friend's wishes to go back out to the street for more water when he was stopped by the sight of the new fire wolf approaching. As he still counted new wolves as hostiles until proven otherwise, the Arlyne quickly ducked back inside the hospital to wait for the stranger to pass. However, the Tenneth followed him in, and so Tiberius slunk back towards Blossom. A mistake apparently.

After dropping the bucket in visible shock of his friend's outburst, it took Tiberius a moment before he sprang to action. Scared for her safety, especially since she probably just ticked off every wolf present, the Arlyne tried to get between her and Fang, the nearest wolf to her. "S-sorry sah!" Tiberius said quickly, backing his rump into Blossom to try and open some distance between her and the Kamarian. "S-she's just crazy, okay? Feathers hasn't had water in a good long while, an' you've all been so kind ta' us, I-I'll jus' take her an' me out the back an' we'll get out of your furs, yeah?"

He turned to try and body-block his friend from getting back into the fray, trying to encourage her through gritted teeth. "C'mon, Feathers. We don't belong here..."

Fang Hunter and Durandel


He didn't like to hear it and would like to tell Nova, "Now that's just the pessimism talking", but he's right. As far as he wants that for himself or anyone else he knows, he understands why. After all of the things they've seen and experienced...he could feel himself starting to think the same way. All of their struggles have been answered by one thing, fighting. And if it wasn't fighting one thing, then it's fighting with each other like right now. He was getting tired of it too and being injured didn't help much with that either. That was when Nova went into this reminiscence about a prison break when the wolf with the one wing decided to just yell at everyone. Nice one.

Durandel then half-expected to hear Mydnyte yell back at the outburster until he remembered Fang was in charge for the moment. Of course, they hardly listened to Mydnyte it seemed for half the time, so will anyone even listen to Fang? That was when Nova leaned in with his last words.

"Case in point mate. It'd be much easier to deal with a screamin' pup like that with a quick swipe of the claws than talking it out."

Durandel wasn't quite sure what to say to that. All he could think of was, "We just got to find another way." He spoke as he shook his head and sigh. Fang was quite surprised to hear all of that come from the young Wolf that had just entered their presence. He could see why Mydnyte could be so grouchy all the time. This is some tough work. Fang scratched behind the ear again. He was worried about the new sudden voice of a stranger, where any wolf in his position, would not trust. Yet, he didn't believe killing everyone outright isn't right. He just looked over to Blossom as Tiberius was trying to shove her away. "You want to know who Blue is? She's the Wolf you just yelled at." Fang answered as he pointed his nose towards Blue. That was then Fang walked past her to go and meet this mysterious Wolf.

"Alright, but if you want to talk, you'll stay right there." Fang said to the stranger. He looked back to the others. "Blue, I'm going to go talk to him. If you hear anything strange, then I want you to get everyone out and keep them safe alright?" He told Blue, a tone of seriousness that you wouldn't expect to hear from out of Fang. Fang then turned to the door and said, "Alright stranger, you have my attention but you better not try anything suspicious. I may not look it, but I'm fast and I can stop you dead before you could do anything else. And I would really hate for it to have to come to that." Fang warned. "So, then, what do you want?" Fang asked.


_________________________


Mydnyte


Mydnyte was quite relieved to see Amarok alright. She was pretty good with her shadow play so it wasn't as bad as he thought to lose those guards. Still they could have her scent, once they get back they will have to leave right away. He then watched as the young Kamarian walked up to him to say her thanks.

"Well that was fun. Good job finding me. Still no sign of Vesta. Hope she is ok. So you wouldn't happen to know were to go from here would you? I got kinda turned around. And when are we going to meet up with the rest of the resistance?

"What in the hell where you thinking!? Huh!? Running off like that!? Did you know you could have gotten yourself captured or worse, killed!?" Mydnyte barked at Amarok while keeping his voice low and quiet. Mydnyte then quickly calmed himself as he let out a breath. "Look, just don't run off like that again, unless we tell you. Alright?" He said finishing his reprimand. "Come on let's go, I know how to get back to the others." He said as he walked on expecting Amarok to follow. As Mydnyte moved on, he made his way back towards the hideout without any notable problem. That was until he returned to see a strange wolf standing before the shop.

Backtracking, Mydnyte stooped low and hid behind a corner wall. He looked on, sizing up the newcomer and seeing what kind of threat he imposed. That was when Mydnyte could smell the scent of fresh blood in the air. He followed his nose only to lead his gaze towards a pair of dead Tenneth. Those corpses certainly weren't there when he left but there was something off about it. He didn't see any signs of battle. Not only is there no scorch marks around but judging by the looks on their faces, they were taken by surprise. Now the question is who did them in? Was it one of there's or was it this stranger? If he did turn on his comrades does that make him a friend or foe? He could be an ally or a spy. In Mydnyte's eyes, to turn on one's packmates like that, the reason had better be a good one.

Then Mydnyte stretched out his right front paw signaling for Amarok to stay back. He wanted to observe this newcomer for a bit. See if he could spot out his intentions before attacking. That was when Fang had stopped him by the door to speak with the strange wolf. "What are you doing Fang!?" Mydnyte thought to himself. He had thought he taught him better than to be within striking distance of another Wolf, especially if you suspect he could be a hostile! Now he can only hope, that if he turns out to be a foe, Mydnyte could quickly close the gap between them before serious harm comes to Fang. Mydnyte eyed him carefully looking for any signs of attack, the situation was tense indeed.

Blue and Blossom

"S-sorry sah!" Tiberius said quickly, backing his rump into Blossom to try and open some distance between her and the Kamarian. "S-she's just crazy, okay? Feathers hasn't had water in a good long while, an' you've all been so kind ta' us, I-I'll jus' take her an' me out the back an' we'll get out of your furs, yeah?"
"C'mon, Feathers. We don't belong here..."


Blossom's face was strangely distorted in what one could assume was anger and indignation, an unusual look for a wolf such as the happy go lucky Blossom. "What? No, Tiberius we can't leave now..."

"You want to know who Blue is? She's the Wolf you just yelled at."

Blue, who had been glaring the Tenneth stranger, was startled by the sudden mention of her name to one of the new wolves she hadn't been introduced to. It however didn't bother her enough to look away from Augue. Her emotions needed to be expressed and if it meant attacking this wolf then so be it... though her ulterior motives kept her from outright attacking him in front of the group of rebels. But maybe he could be provoked? Or if he decided on his own to attack, she could attack? No, he looks too smart for that.

Blossom looked toward Blue, and her ears went up while her tail wagged tiredly. Her annoyance and frustration disappeared in an instance as she realized she had kept her promise to Riko.

She wanted to bounce right up to Blue and deliver the message right then and there, but the rising tension in the room got the better of her. "Berius, we found her we can't leave now!" The whisper was directed at Tiberius and hopefully, her friend would stop trying to leave. Couldn't he see how amazing this was? Wolves of fire, ice and shadows were grouped together. And they were fighting together instead of trying to kill each other! Wouldn't Drais, their previous caretaker, think this was amazing as well? "I bet Drais would join them if he met them."

"Blue, I'm going to go talk to him. If you hear anything strange, then I want you to get everyone out and keep them safe alright?" He told Blue, a tone of seriousness that you wouldn't expect to hear from out of Fang. Fang then turned to the door and said, "Alright stranger, you have my attention but you better not try anything suspicious. I may not look it, but I'm fast and I can stop you dead before you could do anything else. And I would really hate for it to have to come to that." Fang warned. "So, then, what do you want?" Fang asked.

Blue flowered, well, she was already glowering and if anything, the area around her just darkened some more. She really wore her moods well.

"Fang, we should just kill him or torture him. I bet he would know what happened to Summanus. We could torture it as well as other secrets out of him," she growled menacingly, ignoring Blossom's earlier outburst about not killing anyone. Blue was not one to be easily swayed. Not this time.

Tiberius

It seemed nothing Tiberius did was getting through to his friend. It was past point of being unsettling. Never before had the two of them been so at odds with what they wanted to do, what their goals were. They had always been a fire-forged team on just about everything. Where to camp, what to play, how to survive, they always did the smart thing. Together. Now, it felt like he was trying to hold her back by the tail from jumping into a fire. Even as she fought him every step of the way.

But it seemed for a moment that finally this dangerously silly sideshow was at an end, and they could finally get off this hellacious mountain. They found Blue. Blossom could finally give her mystery message she had been so fanatical about. The job was done. But her next words killed that hope.

"I bet Drais would join them if he met them."

The words hit like a claw swipe to the face. She couldn't seriously consider joining this rotten pack of wounded mercenaries a good idea! There was no way Drais would have, either. This lot honestly didn't look much different than the group of brutes that kept them locked up in the mines -- and if that Blue one was anything to show for it, spoke like them too. Tiberius didn't care that a few wolves from different packs were getting along in magic racial harmony. That just meant more types of weapons. All he saw was a bunch of wolves who could kill him and Blossom in any conceivable way if they so much as came in the door at the wrong time. He wasn't looking for a new pack. He already had one of those, with Feathers and someday his parents. He just wanted to go home.

A hollow look sat on his features as he looked after Blossom. He couldn't bear to argue with her anymore, he knew he'd say something hurtful if he did. The normally talkative wolf just managed a meek whisper, "P-please jus' say your thing to her, F-featha"

Blossom

The intensity in the room was growing, and like an inferno waiting to erupt, Blossom was finding it difficult to control herself. Waiting was never her forte.

"P-please jus' say your thing to her, F-featha" Tiberius whispered pitifully.

She hadn't noticed it untill then.

Her best friend looked.... Upset? No, 'Berius couldn't be upset.

She blinked and tilted her head, whispering, "What's wrong 'Berius? You look sick to your stomach."

She cast out the idea of Tiberius being upset and immediately thought maybe that he was sick from the journey or something. He couldn't possibly be upset about the wolves around them, right? Didn't they both need friends? And these wolves here could be their friends, right? Her mind wasn't picking up on his unsettled behavior. Scratch that. It was, but she was denying it. As she was so desperate to keep this newfound feeling of being... Needed. Like she had a purpose and that there was more to this suffering of life then hiding and surviving. These wolves were filling her with hope.

"Maybe you should drink some water?" She half-heartedly smiled. "I know I'm a lil thirsty. Don't worry, I'll tell Blue the message but after all this funny business is over." She poked Tiberius with her nose before turning her attention back to the Conversation about whether or not to kill the fiery stranger.

Tiberius

Tiberius tried to smile and nod, but knowing how hard it would be to do as simple as going to get a drink was too made the false emotion too hard. He just settled with the nod, it wasn't like she was looking anyway. She probably didn't realize how hard it was for him to get the first bucket of water. Or how bad it tasted. It was fine, she had other things on her mind. She always seemed to.

The young water wolf looked around, trying to be disinterested at what was going to happen with the stranger. It didn't help. Even though he wasn't looking directly, the tense energy in the air remained. Besides, everywhere he looked he saw a wolf that looked like he was ready to kill. Savage apprehension kept with him. It felt like his insides were starting seize up, like his heart was being clench to his stomach. It was a rotten feeling, he hated confrontation.

Maybe he would go get water. At least out of this place he could hide. He was at least good at that. Feathers seemed like she could handle herself. He'd go get water for her and him, she'd finish her thing, and then they could get back to real life.

Blue

Blue's earlier words fell on deaf ears and no one else appeared to care much about her opinion of this wolf. Had she not got their trust anymore? Or had she simply never had it since the beginning? Wait, no. All signs point to their trusting me, but maybe they're too exhausted? Blue shook out her coat, forcing her bruised into a sitting position.

While her mind pondered on what action to take next, her body was aching. She must have a bump on the back of her skull from hitting her head so hard earlier. Or maybe a scratch? She wouldn't know. All that she did know was that later on, she could sit and look over the big welt she's going have on her shoulders since seeing a bruise is out of the question when she has a dark black coat. At least my dark coat is quite useful in situations like these. With that thought, she moved her hurting body, "Well then, while you decide if this wolf is worthy making friends with, I'll go get more water for Khan and Nova." She bit into the pail Tiberius had been using and walked out of the hide out. Although she did glare harshly at the Augue fellow on her way pass him.

Once outside, she quickly into a nearby alley where dropped the pail and let out a sniff.

Smoke.
Ashes.
Cinders.
Blood.

It would be impossible for her to find her pendant. The woes of being her right now were enough to make even the purest wolf give up all hope. And that is exactly what she had decided on moments earlier. Wouldn't it be better if she accidentally got herself killed? Death, right now, was looking like the better option out of this mess. But the chances of that happening were actually slim to none. In fact, out of this whole battle, she was probably the only with such a guarantee. Her superiors wouldn't allow her to die, not when she was so useful.

Blue coughed, and made herself move into a limping trot toward the place the Rebels had spoken of before. Maybe she could find Summanus? Accidentally shove him into the line of fire and then heroically save him but not in time to get him to a medic? Ah, what a plan. She probably could have done that with Nova... Too bad he had no eyes now. He can get himself killed without her help now.

*****


Blue was higher up on the side of the volcano in which she thought was the better part of the neighborhood. Sneaking around was quite easy for her over here than it was closer to the factory, er, or where the factory used to be.

"Where are you going?" A tendril of darkness slithered around Blue's paws.

She froze, "I'm going to wait for the Rebels to show up at Prometheus's holdings. It's only a matter of time before they show up there."

"A bold move. Go ahead, and do as you will until we come back for you..."

Blue relaxed visibly as the darkness near her paws disappeared. She looked up toward the rock dens the Tenneth's had carved into the side of the volcano and panted. All she had to do was wait...

Luckily for her, some passing Tenneth guards and what she thought was a Borak, were talking... loudly. She focused on their words.

"... The two tailed mercenary turned out to be such a let down." The Borak groaned, ears down as he walked. "Thought he would have put up more of a fight."

"Well, he's down in Prometheus's personal prison now. At the torture of the Promethean high guard. Pretty soon he'll be dead and then maybe ya can shut your mouth bout two tailed wolves." A Tenneth growled.

"Yeah, what is with you Boraks and having more than one tail? It's unnatural..." The three guards continued walking out of earshot, unaware of the wolf that had been eavesdropping on them.

Her ears were standing at alert while her tail was so very still. So that's what happened to Stormy. She raised her head out of the barrel she was hiding in... Wouldn't it be fun to go and gloat?
