It was so much to take in. He had a daughter? And she was full-grown. What was he supposed to do with a full-grown daughter? He was barely learning how to be a father now. He had avoided pups up until he had had his own with Valdis, and even that had not been purposeful by any stretch of the imagination. What was he supposed to do with an adult daughter?
And worse than that was the fact that she had decided to stick around, seemingly solely because he was here He spent his days and nights hiding from her now, though he would not have put it in such self-deprecating terms. He was too proud to admit he was hiding from a sickly little Ethiopian that happened to be related to him. And it was definitely undeniable that she was his daughter. Not only did that make sense of her features and colouring that were not Ethiopian, but she knew far to much about Esenya. And she had his eyes.
He shook his head wondering if he could let out a scream or if there was anyone around. He would not want to be seen in such a state and definitely could not afford to be seen as unstable, so he fought back the scream for now, though he did think a cold bath would do him a lot of good. Luckily the season and the temperature combined with the climate in this part of Anikira made for an easy time of the “cold” part. He needed only to find the freshwater, which led him to Nyspoli’s Pool.
Since conquesting the Oriens, the green land had grown on him. It had a lot to offer them, a wider selection of prey included. But the area was beautiful, and freshwater was much more plentiful than on the small sea island of Miera, where most of the water, especially in the veins was salty seawater. The water in Nyspoli’s was sweet. But he was not here for a drink. The Jarl waded into its shores, enjoying how it made him feel by washing all the dirt that had stuck to him out of his fur. He felt lighter, and the cold helped him to keep his mind off of Lennox. That was the one thing he definitely did not want to have to think about today. Or any day thereafter.
Jotun knew it was unavoidable, and he was usually not the one to avoid problems. He had always been much more the confront-things-head-on type, but this was a lot to take in. Along with had come a whole slew of memories he had buried along with a past he did not wish to revisit; but it seemed the past had decided to revisit him. Lennox was too much like her mother, and it was unsettling to him, almost as unsettling as the news of Esenya’s passing. It was true he had not seen her in a couple years or ever made plans to, but there was a part of him that still loved her, and that part hurt.
