The cure has been found! Wolves on Anikira are recovering from the disease and life is moving forward with the promise of pups in many packs. And yet darkness looms on the horizon, daring the creatures of Anikira to relax and allow themselves to get comfortable once more.
The weeks that had passed since the dwarf had first met the black beauty, Diomedes had found herself spending more and more time with her. It was a curious thing when her brother Arcturus couldn’t see Cyrene the day he saw her for the first time. The Dire mix couldn’t think of a reason as to why her friend was invisible to her brother. The chocolate point pup could see the other female so she had to exist so there had to be some kind of explanation. It didn’t take Diomedes too long to figure out that other wolves were unable to see her friend either. Most of the individuals that she had met answered with a weird expression on their face and a couple of them even asked if she was crazy. The dire mix knew better and would politely say no and would walk away. There had to be an answer out there somewhere so she would have to continue her search and in time hoped that she would find the answer.
Since she was old enough now, Diomedes began to expand her search to other areas of Anikira. Today she found herself a large area of land that was called North Igneir. It wasn’t far from her home on In’amos, all she had to do was swim across the ocean. The idea seemed easier to her than it really was since the dwarf had little practice with swimming. Due to her size, it was easy for a wave to pull her under which made the trek longer than it should have been. Once she had hit land, Diomedes was completely exhausted and immediately sought shelter in the forest that she found herself in. Despite sleeping for what seemed like a long period of time, the chocolate point pup found herself still tired and sore from the previous night’s adventure. There was no time to dwell on how she felt though for she needed to see if anyone here could see here friend. Maybe it was just the wolves back at home that couldn’t see Cyrene. It would be weird if that was the case, but in the pup’s mind, it was totally possible.
“Okay Cyrene, let’s go see if the wolves here can see you.”
WORDS: 378 TAGS: Boreas NOTES: sorry for sucking and taking forever
[attr="class","post"] Although he had washed ashore several days ago, Boreas had not left the beach. The air was warm, the breeze was cool, and the smell of the seawater was unlike anything he had ever experienced. This felt like what he was waiting for his whole life.This was peace. But it wasn’t comfort or the thought of a peaceful life that discouraged him from exploration. This land was taken.
Boreas could smell the faint scent of what seemed to be a native pack. He understood that his presence would not be taken kindly so he decided to not wander too far from the beach. As long as he didn’t go into their territory he knew that he would be left alone. But Boreas knew that this would change soon. As he found out, seawater is not viable for drinking and trying to catch fish was something that he was a novice in. He knew he would have to venture into this unknown territory, however reluctantly.
After another day or so it was time. Boreas could no longer take the taste of sand and salt. He readied himself for the trip. He didn’t know how far he was going to go or what would be awaiting him but he needed food and water. So with a sigh of reluctance, Boreas took his first steps into the thick forest that towered behind the beach.This forest was much different from the sparse woods that Boreas knew from home. The trees were tall and thick and the air felt tight. Not smothering but more of a tight caress. “I could get used to this,” Boreas thought. The cozy feeling is exactly what he’s been searching for, that the frozen land of his home didn’t provide.
Continuing on, the scent from the pack that owns the territory was getting stronger. Boreas remained on guard as he knew he was starting to get deep into land that isn’t his. As he slowly walked through the forest he heard distance footsteps from something that was much smaller than he was. Quickly hiding he started to watch from the direction he heard the noise. A possible meal if this creature was as small as it sounded.
Closer and closer the footsteps were getting. Once they were near enough, Boreas went in for a swift kill. But what he found was not a meal. No, it was just a small wolf. Not a pup but simply a smaller version of a normal wolf. She was paying no mind to him though and instead had her attention focused elsewhere and was quietly talking to nothing it appeared. “Who is this?” Boreas thought to himself amused.

Jaidah is one of the albinos on the site, a brand new character brought to life by a brand new player. It is interesting to see how such a pure looking being could be wrapped up in the angsty claws that is Irkalla! We will definitely be staying in-tune with this character to see just what heights Bird is able to take her!
