A blistering wind blew through the mountains, winds howling as they traveled between the peaks. The temperature had dropped several degrees by this point, the sun long fallen and replaced by the cloudy skies of night. A charcoal wolf roamed along the vast expanse of white, chin tucked into his own chest to protect his muzzle from the biting winds. Solstice needed to find shelter, needed to get out of the elements.
He was not supposed to have been out this late, but he had been absently walking without a true direction with his mind turned off. Call it what you will, but Solstice had needed to get out on his own for a bit. He was still adjusting to the whole pack life scenario, getting used to it all again. Even now he still had a tendency to stick to the outskirts, choosing to hang out with only a select few wolves within Aludri. And yet, it still was suffocating at times. Solstice had a tendency to cling to the independent life style he once knew, and he knew it was hindering his ability to make connections within the pack.
He had met a handful of wolves; Mufasa, Nymph, Brynn, Kaidyn, among a few others. But he had failed to make a real connection with any of these wolves, since he never had more than a couple encounters with any of them. He was getting to know more and more of his pack mates, or at least had been able to put more faces to names. But Solstice had yet to find someone he could really connect with, a good friend to go on patrols with or even a lady friend.
Just when he felt he was gonna lose a few valuable assets, Solstice spotted an opening up ahead. He hurried ahead on numb paws towards the cave entrance, eager to get out of the cold.
notes: Okie doke! Got caught in the mountains at night, and is forced to spend the night in a cave. Will he get company or remain alone?
