Tai Khöller

It's a big responsibility, but the party doesn't have to end...

0 · 209 views · located in Connorsford

a character in “MARKED II”, as played by shmband

Description

My Name is: Tai Khöller

I am the: Alpha female

I am age: 37

My mate is: Adrian Khöller

In human form I look like: Image

As a wolf i look like: Pale grey

Personality: Tai was originally an outsider (Link to her profile from previous RP) who came into the pack when she was 14, and always had a life-loving, tomboyish edge to her. She's always loved the outdoors, skateboarding, acrobatics, sports and music. Naturally when Adrian became the alpha, she had to start taking things a little more seriously, but she's never felt the need to let go of her fun loving side. She still plays her guitar and gives after school music lessons at the community school.

How you feel about the pack: Considering I was originally an outsider, it's a sweet twist that I'm now at the centre of the pack. I don't consider it a matter of prestige, I just love the feeling of community we share, and while Adrian protects our welfare, I'm all about relationships. I want to help people integrate the best they possibly can, especially others who come in from the outside.

So begins...

Tai Khöller's Story

4pm so often encapsulated a sense of the 'calm before the store' in the pack house. It was generally the quietest time of day. Some of the kids were out (either because they'd had afternoon classes at the school, or because they worked or were just 'out and about'), some of them were in but were generally mooching in their rooms or other discreet corners...perhaps trying to avoid being found to help out with the preparation of dinner.

Tai, for her part, took full advantage of it. All the food materials for dinner were prepared and laid out in the kitchen, and tonight it was a nice easy roast. Just season it and stick it in the oven for an hour or so. But Heaven forbid she should deny the youngsters the opportunity to get their hands stuck into the task...

So until some of them materialised, she was sat on the arm of one of the chairs in the living room - just adjacent to the kitchen, gently strumming her guitar and humming to herself with a wry, contented grin. She could still remember being a teenager in this house herself, always feeling a little bit of an oddball but always happy. Cassidy - alpha female back then - had probably run a tighter ship than Tai did now that she was the alpha female, but that no longer bothered her. This was Adrian's time, and with him she was going to do things her own way. She'd grown comfortable with that over the years.

She could see through the open window that it was still bright outside...the first hints of autumn just about starting to manifest themselves in the woodland which the house overlooked. It was a time when many members of the pack started to realise how they'd wasted the summer lazing around, and sprang into action pursuing outdoor activities before the temperatures started to plummet. Right now though, it was obviously going to be a pleasantly warm evening.

Her mind was wandering all over the shop as she played softly, before she was jolted back into reality by the beeping of her phone. She quickly picked it up and looked at it. Just as expected; a message from Adrian. He and Duncan had taken the 'scenic route' back from their patrol, and were going to be slightly late back. She smirked and shook her head. How things had changed over the years. Adrian was a far less strict an alpha than his father had been, but still managed to command the respect of everyone.

Firing off a quick message back, telling a small lie that dinner was already in the oven cooking so he'd better not be too late, she propped her guitar up behind the sofa and wandered through to the kitchen. She didn't start cooking yet per se, she just started shuffling around a few pots and pans, creating some distinct "dinner preparation" type noises, just to see if it would coax a few people out to help...or whether it would cause them to retreat further into hiding from their duties!




Adrian tossed his PDA from one hand to the other, waiting for Tai's reply. When it came, he read it, nodded, and tucked the device safely away in his pack. Patrol...what a wonderful cover for an hour or two of outdoor buffoonery with a good friend. All in the name of fulfilling his role as alpha of the Khöller pack! If it weren't for the fact that the post-effects would be obvious, he'd have taken along a few beers for Duncan and him to enjoy on the trek.

Of course, the route they took had to resemble something like a realistic perimeter of the territory, and of course Adrian knew the important of knowing what was going down on his own turf. He'd seen one or two familiar faces along the way - mainly where the patrol route brought them close to the town - and some of them had been humans (blissfully ignorant of the presence of a pack of wolves living among them) but most of them had been pack members living in the town.

Still, just as expected, nothing untoward had been encountered. It had just been a thoroughly pleasant time out with a good friend. The only pressing matter now was getting back in time to retain the moral high ground when some of the young people started skulking in late for dinner. Being late was foolishness anyway...anyone who's sat down to eat with a pack a wolves (be they in human form or otherwise) knew that tardiness eventually resulted in starvation! It had been that way when Adrian was young, and it hadn't changed since then.

"Yo Duncan!" he called out, realising he'd lost sight of his friend who must have pressed on ahead. "Maybe we should short cut down onto the road? Tai says grub's already bubbling...and I'm not sure if she's bluffing. You eating with us tonight? Always welcome."

Duncan, being a fully fledged adult pack member, did not live in the pack house...officially. But the spare room on the ground floor was frequently used by him as a crash pad, since he did not yet have a mate, and therefore was not required to be 'home' in any particular hurry!

Being the newest addition to the house Harry preferred to spend most of his spare time in his room. Despite being there for a year or so it still took time to feel apart of something and being such a tightly knitted bunch he was still finding his place amongst them all.

He’d had an awkward midday class at the school which had left him at odds for what to do for the rest of the day. Listening to music and finishing off his homework had passed a couple of hours. Usually homework would be a taboo to a teen but Harry had been quick to realise that doing his best at school was pretty important and he didn’t like to mess up on the important things.
It’d be a fairly peaceful, concentrated moment if Nancy wasn’t lingering just outside his door. He really did hate lingering individuals but he’d managed to withstand it for this long because Nancy used a citrus smelling deodorant and it really did smell quite lovely.

“What is it?” he muttered glancing up from his folder.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Nancy bit her lip and peered around the door frame. The room was rather dim with the curtains still partially drawn and it smelt stuffy thanks to the windows obviously being closed. Harry was draped over his bed with papers and a folder laid out just in front of him. Nancy entered cautiously feeling like a living air freshener in the pungent space.

She twiddled her fingers around her homework. “Erm…I was wondering…if-”

“Bring it here” Harry muttered his monotone voice emotionally flat.

Nancy smiled brightly and promptly plonked herself down on the bed edge whilst passing him the papers. He glanced over at her momentarily and smiled slyly.

“What is it this time? A difficult equation or have you just come to admire my sculpted guns.”

Nancy chuckled at him only bothering now to take notice of his bare torso. It was hilarious that Harry prided himself on his body when he was in reality a skinny twiglet. She pushed him away with a cute smile. “Neither. They want me to do a biology test on the female wolf form. I was hoping you’d label this diagram for me so I can revise.” she explained gesturing to the female wolf image.

Harry tossed the homework aside and sat up with a grin. “Well lets revise now” He jabbed her in the side playfully. “These are the ribs”
Nancy caved in with a giggle. He poked her in the boob. “And that’s near your sternum”
She slapped his hand away and retreated off the bed. “Harry!” she exclaimed her cheeks reddening.

Harry lurched forwards and tried to grope her bottom. “And that’s where your caudal vertebrae will be-”

Nancy squealed and leapt back. “Aww get away from me” she cried whilst running from the room. “You’re such a perv Harry!” she yelled from the hallway.
Running down the stairs Nancy hurried into the presence of Tai incase she'd been pursued by the rowdy forteen year old.

Robin giggled excitedly as she held her twin's wallet in front of his face. "You want it? Huh? Do ya?" she questioned jokingly, using her absolutely best puppy-dog voice.

Carter looked surprised for a moment that she had his wallet and stuck his hand in his pocket just to make sure. He wasn't a bit surprised that she had taken it and rolled his eyes in annoyance. "Just give me my wallet, Rob."

Robin gave him a look that seemed to say, 'Is that a joke?' and turned on her heels, beginning to walk away from him. "Look, Cart, you and I both know that that isn't going to happen."

Carter sighed, acting defeated and then suddenly, as fast as he could, Carter made a grab for Robin's arm. However, Robin was too quick and she easily slid out of his grasp. Carter made another grab for her, but she was already at a tree and had begun to climb it. She made it to a nook in the tree and sat down in it, looking down at Carter.

Carter looked up at her and sighed in annoyance. However, he couldn't help the tiny smile that made its way to his face. It made him happy seeing how Robin was like their mother in so many ways. Carter shook his head, wiping the smile off his face. What didn't make him happy was the fact that he never seemed to actually have his wallet when he was around Robin. He looked back up at Robin with a defeated sigh. "Fine, what do you want?"

One second, Robin was in the tree, and the next she had hopped down and landed softly in front of him. Robin sighed and held up the wallet which Carter snatched from in between her two fingers. "You're no fun anymore." She pouted, turned away and began walking toward the pack house again. Carter stuck his wallet back in his pocket and jogged a bit to catch up to her.

They walked for a while until they finally made it back to the pack house and walked in the large door. "...So I took it from him. I mean, it's not like he keeps it very well guarded," Carter said finally ending his long story about something or other as he closed the door behind Robin.

Robin put on a fake thoughtful face and looked over at him. "So it's kind of like you and your wallet?" She asked before reaching into her back pocket and producing Carter's wallet. Carter gave a small growl and grabbed for the wallet. Robin smiled and stepped back, out of his reach. "So predictable, Cart." She tsked loudly and tossed the wallet to him.

Carter caught the wallet and rolled his eyes. "You do know that I could break both your legs in two seconds, right?"

Robin smiled up at him as the he made his way over to the kitchen two get a snack with Robin following closely beside him. "Oh yeah? I'd like to see you try." They began to argue, as they often did, in such a way that it started to sound like they were speaking a different language. They were still in their quarrel when they walked into the kitchen and came upon Mark, Isaac, Tai, and Nancy who seemed to be making dinner. The twins momentarily stopped their argument and said in synchronicity, "What's for dinner?"

Erin’s desk was awash with open textbooks, crumpled up pieces of paper, and half finished essays. None of it was homework, she’d already finished that. For the most part it had been pretty boring; though as always she enjoyed her speech and debate assignment. But seriously, couldn’t teachers think of something to give them that weren’t just memorization and repetition of facts? It was like they just expected everyone to take facts in and then spit them out like a machine! Erin had even gotten in trouble the other day for questioning a teacher!

It was absolutely preposterous, if her biology teacher could give her no viable proof that dragons didn’t exist then there was no reason why she couldn’t speculate on them in her term paper! For peat’s sake they were werewolves! But nooooo, apparently it was wrong to choose a “mythical” creature, and then lecture your teacher on the probability of its’ existence!

Of course, that wasn’t what was on her desk either. Erin’s desk was awash with college brochures, Sat prep books, were-wolf history books, and half written speeches. All of her speeches were half written because Erin simply couldn’t think of what to say. She was enjoying a bout of writers block, and it was exhilarating. She just begun to start yet another speech paper when she heard the sounds of dinner preparations coming from below her.

Erin bolted up immediately, shoving her books and papers into a pile and cleverly concealing them with a blanket. This was just what she needed, a distraction. She could take a break for dinner and grill Tai one more time about male succession laws in the pack.

Erin went down the stares taking them three at a time and galumphing into the kitchen. She was just in time to here Mark talk about food being women’s work and then apologize because it was his wolf who made him say it.

Strolling up to him she put his arm over his shoulder in an overly friendly gesture and said, “Mark, mark, mark. You should let you’re wolf know that this is is the twenty first century. The idea of women being bound to the home is an ancient thing of the past. Righttttt?”She flashed him a smile, ready to launch into a lengthy speech that the majority of the household had heard at least four times over.

It was a source of limitless mirth how a little noise in the kitchen was the like orchestra leader striking up the band in a broadway music, triggering the entrace (in various degrees of gracefulness) of the familiar cast. Nancy was the first in, and some precursory exclamations from upstairs suggested that she had been accelerated on her way by some form of antics. Tai looked up at her and smiled, rolling a couple of onions towards Nancy along the counter.

"Chop chop." she said, reaching for the baking foil and checking to see if the oven was up to temperature yet.

Next in was Mark, once again harangued and gainsayed by his own wolf. It was uncanny, Tai had never met a youngester with such a vocal wolf. She imagined that Mark's first shift must have either been a walk in the part or the most stressful thing imagineable! And then for the poor guy to have Erin's voice added into the mix on the subject...she couldn't help but laugh out loud.

"Ohh Erin," she said, "you remind me of a female who grew up here the same time as me, called Lux. I think the equality cause is laudible, but you have to remember that as wolves some things are written into our beings and trying to fight them can do more than just injure our pride. But..."

She smirked and glanced over at Mark, stopping short of mentioning some of the things Adrian was often heard to say back in the day, frequently to Lux's ire. Yes it was true, her mate had been considerably less...'progressive' than some of this new generation of wolves. Nevertheless, having only a daughter to succeed him had certainly challenged the paradigm somewhat...

...speaking of which, where was Raena? Tai couldn't remember having seen her all day.

"...if you're really keen to help, why doesn't one of you head out to the patio and pick some rosemary for the lamb?"

Raena leaned over a rosebush carefully tilting a brilliant, deep red rose to gaze at the thorns. She wasnt far from the house- less than half of a kilometer away. She carefully picked the rose, avoiding the thorns. With her prize in hand, Rae grinned triuphly and spun away from the bush. "Ha! Didnt get me this time." She pinned back one side of her hair with the rose, so her auburn curls cascaded over one of her shoulders.

Rae took her time going back home as the sun slowly began to set. She loved her pack, but sometimes needed to take a day off to be alone. She had found a cluster of flowers in the middle of the forest surrounding the house, that she liked to go to. She always came home smelling like roses and lavender- but often pricked one of her finger while trying to pick one of the roses.
Raena paused just before opening the door to the house, tilting her head back and enjoying the warm rays of light from the dying sun. With a small satisfied sigh, she opened the door.

Bumping the kitchen door open with her hip, Rae smiled as she saw practically the whole pack was in the kitchen. "Seems everyone has gravitated to the smell of a lovely dinner. i would offer to help, but for the sake of the pack's health, i think i'll pass." She laughed, leaning against the nearest pack member, that happened to be Carter. Shooting him a flirty smile, her mismatched eyes watched him from behind long dark lashes. "So, what did i miss?"

Erin was eagerly awaiting Marks response and hoping it was a wolf fueled rant against Erin’s progressiveness. Instead she got, "I agree with you whole heartidly on that. Women are playing bigger and bigger roles in society. We have women in goverment and in positions of power and they tend to run things smoother then men at times to." Erin Stuck her tongue out at Mark, knowing full well he was attempting to dodge the bullet that was her rants.

"Although he dosn't agree on that" he added, "sometimes I think he just trys to be my exact opposite some time."
Eric was about to attempt to reason with Marks wolf when Tai entered the conversation, "Ohh Erin," she said, "you remind me of a female who grew up here the same time as me, called Lux. I think the equality cause is laudible, but you have to remember that as wolves some things are written into our beings and trying to fight them can do more than just injure our pride. But..."

Tai trailed off, no doubt lost in memory about the crazy days of her youth. Erin had no doubt that they were indeed crazy days, she’d read enough history books and gotten enough lectures from teachers to know all about the rouges who’d attacked. She couldn’t quite place the name Lux though…

Erin smiled at Tai, releasing her grip on Marks shoulder to Sit up on the counter, “You should tell me more about this Lux sometime. She sounds like a downright awesome person.”

"You know, Erin, I think women play a very big role in society,” Carter said. Erin paused a moment, trying to decide whether this was an insult to her, or a comment on Marks prior statement. As she decided she watched the antics of Robin and tried hard to conceal her giggles. Erin smiled, the two of them were fun to watch. There constant banter was a never-ending source of amusement.

Erin nodded thoughtfully, as if concentrating very hard, and said in an analytical tone, “You are right carter, women do play a big role in society. The fact that mark,” Erin swung her head towards her pack mate and flashed him an evil grin, “didn’t say that they currently play a big part in society begs the question; does mark hold anti-feminist feelings which cause him to believe that while the role of women has improved, it is still not important? Or, does he simply not feel that the role of women has improved to an important, but he still supports the cause...?”

She paused a second, letting mark suffer through the idea that he was about to get a lengthy talking to. Finally she jumped off the counter and said to the group, “ But, alas, we will never know, for now at least. As I am off to get Tai some Rosemary.” With an deep over exaggerated bow, and a friendly wave to Raena as she entered the kitchen, Erin turned and sauntered out of the room.

Tai paused for a thoughtful moment when Erin solicited to know more about Lux some time. It could have been a way of politely ending that train of conversation, but it sounded genuine enough. How easily Lux's name had fallen from mind and speech over the past eighteen years...despite the remarkable fact of her being the only female in living memory to survive her first shift without her mate. And now, who knew where she was...

"Thanks hon." she said to Erin as she passed through the back door leading from the kitchen to the patio. The kitchen was fairly large but was already starting to feel crowded. Perhaps, she thought with a smirk, it had been designed only to fit the female contingent of the house pack, based on the old ideals Erin and Mark were so vehemently opposing.

Tai's heightened senses caught Raena's scent before her daughter was even in the room. She looked over and laughed under her breath. A rose in the hair this time...it was stuff like that which Tai found so endearing, but knew at the same time confounded Adrian as to how Raena could possibly be his successor as alpha one day.

"Hey munchkin," she said, deliberately using the less-than-well-recieved childhood nickname for her daughter that she found it fun to bring up from time to time, "how about you live a little yourself and come over here, join the party and peel those potatoes."




Adrian nodded and chuckled...though there was a slight awkwardness to his response. Spending most time in the woods and helping out the family...yeah, he could see Duncan being like that when he was young. But it was difficult to forget of himself that Adrian had spent most of his youth playing video games and winding up the females in the pack house. But for now it was best to agree with Duncan...hopefully his past wouldn't come up to embarass him too much, though if it did it would probably come from Tai, or possibly one of the others who was with him back in those days.

"Yeah, tell me about it." he said, "Although perhaps we should give the current bunch some credit. They seem to be learning that the best way to avoid work is to be out and abou..."

He caught a movement in the foliage some way up ahead to the left. As if someone approached, and then quickly darted away. He raised his head and peered forwards. What concerned him the most was that whoever it was made their retreat towards the pack house.

"You see that?" he said curtly to Duncan, "Best check it out. You go after them, I'll circle the tree line and catch them if they try to come out the other side..."

He didn't wait for a response, but broke into a sprint further down the path until the meadow opened up to the left, and followed the forest edge, knowing that if the figure in the woods was heading for the pack house they would come out somewhere around here...

Erin stood outside on the patio with her hands on her hips as she considered her options. In truth, she probably ought to have asked what rosemary looked or smelled like… So far she’d eliminated several patches of possible green things.

She knew which ones were mints, because the smell gave it away pretty quickly. She knew which ones were chives, because she used chives to make her self guacamole. Thirdly she knew which one was Basil, because she thought it smelled the best. The problem was there was there were still two patches of green, which could be rosemary…. Erin shrugged and grabbed what was nearest to her.

Clenching the leaves in her fist she flounced back into the kitchen, throwing the door open with a little more force than rosemary.

Bobbing over to Tai she spoke as she did so, “You may all rejoice as I, your savior, have returned with rosemary in hand!”

As an afterthought she added, “So you can all start whistling and pretend you weren’t just talking about how deeply you detest my debates and speeches.”

With a smile she turned to Tai and and opened her hand to reveal what she desperately hoped was Rosemary leaves, “Here you go.” Erin hoped she’d gotten the right ones; if not she would just have to play it off as the distraction of an occupied mind.

Nancy winced at the sudden bustle in the kitchen whilst chopping at the onions but pretended it was merely the onions. Despite the task of chopping a vegetable being a fairly simple one Nancy had her tongue fixed firmly in between her two front teeth as she concentrated on each individual slice. It was made harder by the fact the counters were fairly high.

She did her best to block out the boring, flirtatious drone around her from the rest of the guys but agreed with Quinn’s comment about Harry. She smiled at Raena when she came beside her to chop some potatoes. Typical of Tai to put the midgets to work!

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Harry had laughed off Quinn’s comment up stairs after Nancy had fled the room but his second comment that he heard as he wondered down the stairs needed a retort.

“Hahahaaaa…if that were true Quinn wouldn’t I be after you when you’ve got your little pink cooking mittens on” he sneered hinting at the fact the blonde was terribly girly for his baking obsession.

He squirmed his way into the middle of group to grab a drink from the fridge before he turned back and winked at Robin.

"Hey munchkin, how about you live a little yourself and come over here, join the party and peel those potatoes." Raena groaned and stuck her tounge out at her mother when she called her 'munchkin'. Bumping her hip against Carter so she was standing up on her own and shooting him a mock-dramatic look, she glanced at her mother annoyedly. "Alright, but we all no cooking never turns out well when I'm involved. Just a warning." with that, she flicked back her auburn curls and held her head high defiantly as she went to stand by Nancy.

Rae began peeling the potatoes quickly, sending potato peels flying. Suddenly, she yelped sharply and drew back her hand. Wincing, she inpected a somewhat deep cut across her index finger as it bled. "Well, great. Now we've got a bloody index finger, and a bloody potato." With a pout, she wrapped her finger with a paper toweland glanced at Tai. "Now am I exempt from cooking? I told you this wouldn't turn out well."

Tai could see that her chances of getting much help from the gum-flapping males in the room was diminishing as they got more bolshy with each other. Some things didn't change much! But it was OK. One person chopping, one person peeling, once that was done all that had to happen was for it all to go in the pot with a few sprigs of...

She looked at the meagre offering of greenery Erin presented her with, and managed to turn her look of dismay into a look of serendipity quickly enough for anyone to notice.

"Ah good thinking Erin!" she said, "Coriander goes well with lamb too. I'll put in a bit of cumin and paprika, and we'll give it a bit of Moroccan heat. Well done."

With a smile she took the herbs and began to quickly chop up the leaves, before she was distracted by a yelp of pain and looked up to see her daughter nursing an injury. She raised an eyebrow incredulously. Really, she's cut herself on a potato peeler?

"Oh Rae...OK don't worry go get that washed. That's probably enough potatoes anyway. Maybe go keep an eye out for your father, and see if Duncan is with him. Need to now how many places we're setting at the table OK?"




Adrian prowled along the treeline pensively looking for any movement...and then there it was. He could see Duncan steering the figure to the right spot, and put himself right in the person's path. Whoever it was was fast, and made a cunning lunge to get away, but Adrian was well prepared enough and managed to tackle the girl to the ground, gently so as not to hurt her. It didn't take him long to recognise who it was.

"Emily??" he exclaimed, quickly releasing her and standing up. "Are you OK? Why were you running from us?"




Calvin slammed the ball hard against the surface of the basketball court and weaved from side to side, feigning against imaginary opponents. The community game was tomorrow night and, typically, none of the team were available for practice. Something had Calvin in a foul mood tonight. He wasn't sure what it was, but the last thing he needed was to be around the rabble at meal-preparation time...Quinn being an honourary female, Erin answering all the questions nobody ever asked...grrr.

The pack dynamic got to him sometimes. Especially when it was so close to the full moon. Just four night away, and everybody was still living like a bunch of...he couldn't even bring himself to say it. He'd gotten in trouble for starting the discussion too many times before.

With a sigh her turned and went into the house, stepping into the hall and pausing just in case he caught the sound of anything worthwhile going on.

Quinn watched everyone do there thing Raena slice her finger, then Mark jumping to her 'Rescue'. He only had a Erin picking Coriander instead of Rosemary, then well he wasn't sure what to what she did next?

Chapter to go to finishing his book as Erin asked about game night, "I'll play with we do Monopoly..." he then flipped the page as he looked up at Erin, "But. Only if I get the race car." he said smiling only time he'd play is if he got the race car or the battleship. Anything else that was a no no.

He then glanced over at Tai seeing he should see if he could maybe help, "Is there anything I can do or are we covered?" He asked his eyes moving back and forth from his book to her as he tried to finish it.
